    Of course, to hear the Republican Talking Points memos, President Obama is the cause of the economic crisis. So is Rick Perry saying that Obama is God?

    (“I don’t know, Bubba, I might be able to accept that God is a Democrat, but a BLACK MAN????)

    Discuss this tonight and the many other similiar cases plaguing real Americans:

    Charges have been filed against an unlicensed driver and suspected illegal immigrant who allegedly killed a 4-year-old boy in a hit-and-run accident, the San Francisco Chronicle reports.
    The newspaper reports that prosecutors in Sonoma County charged 22-year-old Marcos Lopez Garcia with felony hit-and-run, two misdemeanors and vehicular manslaughter, among other charges, in the Thursday death of Christopher “Buddy” Rowe of Santa Rosa.
    Garcia had two prior arrests for driving without a license, according to the newspaper.

    O’ yeah, those real ‘Merican’s as apposed to us French people who just play being American on this here blog… That’s right you caught us, Rog, RHP, I think it’s time we fessed up to the fact that we’re all really French.

    Perry has that self-satisfied pickle-up-his-ass lugubriousness that I thought died out with Jerry Falwell.

    I spent a lovely afternoon hiking the trails at Point Defiance Park in Tacoma and as I was leaving the park I noticed a “retain Erik Hanberg for Metro Parks” sign. Hanburg’s a great guy and I hadn’t realized was on the parks board.

    I bring this up because Erik, like a lot of other younger folks in various leadership positions around Tacoma, got his start and his name out there working at The Grand Cinema. And because Ryan Mellow, who’s now on the Tacoma City council started out on the parks board. Tacoma’s developing a “leadership funnel” for young folks. Spokane has a similar thing with http://www.leadershipspokane.org/ and a variety of local environmental environmental groups.

    I’m wondering if Seattle has similar “leadership funnels?” I’ve noticed that Seattle’s parks board is appointed, not elected. Where would someone in Seattle who wanted to “test the waters” of elected officialdom start?

    @6 For every unlicensed immigrant who runs over someone there’s at least a dozen Republican-voting U.S. citizens who kill someone while driving drunk. So what’s your fucking point?

    @6 The Komical Klynical Klown sez, “Discuss this tonight and the many other similiar cases plaguing real Americans”


    Discuss this tonight and the many other similiar cases plaguing Republicans:

    Republican and U.S. Attorney from Florida, John David R.
    Atchison, was arrested for traveling to New York with
    intentions of having sex with a five year old.

    When interviewed Atchinson said, “I am always gentle and
    loving; not to worry, no damage ever, no rough stuff ever. I only
    like it soft and nice.”

    When they asked him how he could be certain he wasn’t hurting the child he said, “Just
    gotta go slow and very easy. I’ve done it plenty.”


    heh. We never could get the Klown to talk about this stuff. I figure it must have hit him too close to home, er, the barn.

    The Klown always was a racist. Today he’s hating on latinos. He used to hate on blacks as well. He likes to tell jokes about how they’re lazy and shiftless.

    5. Mr. Cynical spews:
    Barack Obama got out of the shower and was drying off
    when he looked in the mirror and noticed he was white from the neck up to
    the top of his head.
    In sheer panic and fearing he was turning white and might have to start
    working for a living
    , he called his doctor and told him of his problem.
    The doctor advised him to come to his office immediately. After an
    examination, the doctor mixed a concoction of brown liquid, gave it to
    Barack, and told him to drink it all.
    Barack drank the concoction and replied, ‘That tasted like bullshit!’
    The doctor replied, ‘It was, you were a quart low.’

    Yeah, the Klown hates brown people, alright. The way his two brain cells figure it, they aren’t “Real Americans” like the Klown. No word from the Klown yet if the goat’s a Real American or not.

    damn steve, that is fucked up. If that guy is guilty, he should be immediately executed.

    There is no such thing as rehabilitation for these sick assholes that prey on kids.

    The Illegal who killed that 4 year-old boy was not a real American. He is a killer with 2 prior arrests who was still allowed to stay in this country. Nothing racist about it. Try telling the 4 year-old’s family they are racist for being angry.

    The Illegal who killed that 4 year-old boy was not a real American.

    Geez Mr. Cynical, there’s 11 million illegals in this country and only the tiniest fraction are committing violent crimes. We hear a lot about them from the right wing whackos and little to nothing about the “legal” child killers.

    Howz those folks having them harvest produce, cutting meat, cleaning offices like this one rank as “real americans”?

    Roger Rabbit spews:

    @22 Tell you what. It costs money to deport people. If you want to deport people for driving without a license, I’ll support that if you pay the taxes to cover the costs.

  14. 25

    Roger Rabbit spews:

    @23 I think we should deport everyone who hits and kills 4-year-olds, regardless of citizenship. If they’re American citizens, tough shit, send ‘em to Mexico. If they’re Republicans, tough shit, send ‘em to Mexico. Running over a kid should get you sent to Mexico no matter who you are!

    ArtFart spews:

    @24 In point of fact, it’s profitable not to deport people. That might possibly have something to do with all the people the INS picks up who then stay in detention for ages in those new jails Uncle Sam built and then arranged for private contractors to run. (The one at Sea-Tac is operated by a subsidiary of–surprise! Halliburton.

    We all know Obama announced last week that he was issuing an executive order which would supposedly implement Bush’s “Dream Act”, which predictably didn’t set too well with the teabag “patriots”. I’d venture that it won’t really make a lot of difference, the wheels of “justice” will continue to grind as slowly as always, the immigration jails will stay full, and the contractors will continue to cash in.

    Updated numbers for the national debt are just out: It’s now $14,639,000,000,000.

    When Barack Obama took the oath of office twice on Jan. 20, 2009, CBS’ amazing number cruncher Mark Knoller reports, the national debt was $10,626,000,000,000.

    That means the debt that our federal government owes a whole lot of somebodies including China has increased $4,247,000,000,000 in just 945 days. That’s the fastest increase under any president ever.

    Even CBS and LA Times acknowledge Obummer’s debt ways. Too bad the HA morons can’t.

    $4,247,000,000/day. Media Morons attacked Bill O’Reilly when he mentioned $4.1 Billion a day debt under Obummer. Now CBS and LA Times have a larger number. What will Media Morons say now when the libtardo MSM corroborates Bill O’Reilly?

    Sorry to disappoint you, but I’m not Cynical. However I do know him, live near him and have followed this Blog. When he decided to stop posting, I decided to post once in awhile in his honor. He is doing great and has been traveling a lot. In fact, I’m picking them up at the airport tomorrow afternoon. Should I let him know that you miss him?
