Please join us at the Seattle chapter of Drinking Liberally at the Montlake Ale House, 2307 24th Avenue E. beginning at about 8:00 pm. Some of us will be there early for dinner.



Not in Seattle? There is a good chance you live near one of the 250 other chapters of Drinking Liberally.

    And when the people who brought you the economic melt down in 2008 and profited on it get the candidates they are buying into office in this cycle win, those who voted them in despite all reasonable evidence not to will wonder what happened.

    Vote Democratic, and hedge by buying Yuan.

    Hmmm economic meltdown

    Bernie Madoff – DUMBOCRAT jockstrap

    Allen J Stanford – DUMBOCRAT jockstrap

    Timothy Geithner – DUMBOCRAT jockstrap who forgot to pay some of his taxes during that time

    Barney Frank – now sanguine in 2010 over Freddy Mac and Fannie mae when he was gung ho in 2004 – 2009

    Good Thomas Friedman post.

    Can’t Keep a Bad Idea Down

    I confess, I find it dispiriting to read the polls and see candidates, mostly Republicans, leading in various midterm races while promoting many of the very same ideas that got us into this mess. Am I hearing right?

    Thomas L. Friedman
    Let’s have more tax cuts, unlinked to any specific spending cuts and while we’re still fighting two wars — because that worked so well during the Bush years to make our economy strong and our deficit small. Let’s immediately cut government spending, instead of phasing cuts in gradually, while we’re still mired in a recession — because that worked so well in the Great Depression. Let’s roll back financial regulation — because we’ve learned from experience that Wall Street can police itself and average Americans will never have to bail it out.

    Oh yeah for your consumption: President Obama Heads into Midterms at Lowest Approval Rating of Presidency – 37%

    It’s perhaps not surprising that nine in ten Republicans (90%) and Conservatives (89%) give the job the president is doing negative ratings. What may be surprising is that one-third of Democrats (34%) and Liberals (33%) also give him negative ratings, as do seven in ten Independents (70%) and six in ten Moderates (60%).

    24x7x365 STUPID!

    I see that the stomper wants an apology from the woman whose head he stomped.

    “I don’t think it’s that big of a deal,” Profitt said. “I would like for her to apologize to me to be honest with you.”

    What is wrong with you people? Have you lost your minds?

    This just up on Rasmussen. The more ImamObaMao speaks, the better it is….for Conservatives.
    There is something wrong with a guy who runs around 24/7 jackin’ his jaws in rage when he is the President of the USA!

    Wednesday, October 27, 2010

    The Rasmussen Reports daily Presidential Tracking Poll for Wednesday shows that 27% of the nation’s voters Strongly Approve of the way that Barack Obama is performing his role as president. Forty-five percent (45%) Strongly Disapprove, giving Obama a Presidential Approval Index rating of -18.

    Just over half the nation’s voters say it’s fair to call the Democrats the party of big government.

    Wednesday, October 27, 2010

    Milwaukee County Executive Scott Walker now earns his highest level of support yet against Democrat Tom Barrett in the race to be Wisconsin’s next governor.

    The latest Rasmussen Reports statewide telephone survey of Likely Voters finds the Republican candidate with 52% of the vote, while Barrett, the mayor of Milwaukee, picks up 42% support.

    Feingoldstein is also getting his ass handed to him. Do you think Wisconsin will support the Imam in 2012??

    This R running against Barney will be a nightmare for him in the future. Barney usually wins by 35-40 points.
    Barney has spent a ton of money and is only up 12-13 points in 2 left-leaning polls.
    Barney is beside himself with rage.

  10. 12

    Mr. Cynical spews:

    Also note–
    Scott Brown won Barney’s District and ImamObaMao is at 50%-49% fav./unfav.

    The R’s are dumping tons of money in just to stir up Barney. Poor Barney, he is the only one who doesn’t seem to know he’s a CROOK!

Back of the Bus for Republicans ImamObaMao shouts! Then ImamObaMao goes on the greatest Race-baiter of our time’s show…the “Rev” Al Sharpton to plead with black folks to give him more time to give them free stuff and an easier life.

    This is pathetic.
    ImamObaMao is -18 on the Strong Approval Poll. He was +32 post inauguration. A 50-point drop in the same poll!!!! And the guy cannot stop trying to be the center of the Universe.

    correctcontrite pounds Puddy as a racist for citing a 2007 article about green genocide and ecotage. Silent Spring greens took away or tamped down the poor world’s access to DDT, a magic bullet that wiped out malaria in the mostly-white USA.

    correctnotbright linked to an extremist Scientific American article, but failed to note (or notice) a subsequent thread of discussion and dissent. Here’s a little of the blowback:

    The pure hypocrisy of these American eco-colonialists makes me livid. Imagine these western elites telling Africans how to deal with malaria! One-million or more Africans–mainly women and infants–die of malaria each and every year–and this “panel’s” advice: don’t use DDT! Why? Because of “reduced fertility” and “breast cancer.” Hello–the alleged linkage of breast (or any other cancer) and DDT/DDE has been sought and NOT FOUND for over a decade. DDT was banned by the EPA administrator in 1972 against the advice of his scientific advisory panel–there remains NO EVIDENCE of significant adverse human health effects, which was true even at the massive overuse levels of the 1960s. Their “concern” over the “potential effects of DDT use on future generations” would be obviated by the loss of these generations to malaria without DDT. ,,,

    Ecocolonialism. That’s what liberal scientists are all about, particularly with their “global” “warming” fanatacism.

    At least National Geographic, almost as far to the ecocolonialist left as Scientific American, finally tells the truth: Rachel Carson was a villain. Extreme greens kill kids.

    And National Geographic tells the truth about a bug that pops its fecal pellets about five feet. Of course I immediately thought of Rabbit.

    The Onion, FTW.

    “There’s a great deal on the line, and we know it isn’t going to be easy for us,” said Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-NV), speaking from the steps of the Capitol. “But if we suffer defeat, we will do so knowing we cowered away from absolutely anything we produced that was even remotely progressive or valuable in any way.”

    “And we will keep cowering right up until Election Day,” Reid continued. “From Maine to Hawaii, in big cities and small towns, we will collapse into a fetal position and refuse to take credit for our successes anywhere voters could conceivably be swayed by learning what we have achieved on their behalf.”

    Democrats are spending millions of dollars on a last-minute campaign to remind Americans how utterly spineless they are.

    House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) acknowledged the task would be difficult, but said Democrats would remain steadfast in permitting their opponents to deride the accomplishments of the $787 billion Recovery Act, even as the nonpartisan Congressional Budget Office reports that the 2009 measure has created millions of jobs.

    @20

    Silent Spring greens took away or tamped down the poor world’s access to DDT, a magic bullet that wiped out malaria in the mostly-white USA.

    Actually, they didn’t and if DDT and there are newer and better pesticides w/o the side effects of DDT (like killing off birds that eat misquotes.) was used as heavily as it was in the 50’s and 60’s the misquotes would have become immune to it anyway.

    The Stockholm Accord banned DDT’s use in agriculture, not malaria control. DDT is a cheap and easy thing to make and it still occasionally turns up in fruit and produce and coffee that’s imported from the third world. In other words, DDT is still getting used every now and again in agriculture.

    Look, if you’re going to lie at least come up with a new and interesting lie. This canard is old, tired, and boring.

    Just “require” a handy code library that uses the api and your tinyurls, your bit.ly’s, etc. are now transparent!

    You hid a few wingnut websites in those tinyurl’s.
