The Seattle chapter of Drinking Liberally meets tonight (and every Tuesday), 8PM at the Montlake Ale House, 2307 24th Avenue E.

I’ll be out trick or treating with my daughter, so I won’t be showing up until a little later in the evening. But when I do, I’ll be wearing my super-scary Tim Eyman costume.

Not in Seattle? Washington liberals will also be drinking tonight in the Tri-Cities and Vancouver. Here’s a full run down of WA’s ten Drinking Liberally chapters:

Here’s some FACTS for ‘Headless Lucy’ re Kerry the Fairy’s grades vs Bushs at Yale.
————
In 1999, The New Yorker published a transcript indicating that Bush had received a cumulative score of 77 for his first three years at Yale and a roughly similar average under a non-numerical rating system during his senior year.

Kerry, who graduated two years before Bush, got a cumulative 76 for his four years, according to a transcript that Kerry sent to the Navy when he was applying for officer training school. He received four D’s in his freshman year out of 10 courses, but improved his average in later years.

The grade transcript, which Kerry has always declined to release, was included in his Navy record. During the campaign the Globe sought Kerry’s naval records, but he refused to waive privacy restrictions for the full file. Late last month, Kerry gave the Navy permission to send the documents to the Globe.

RELATED STORY: Kerry allows Navy release of military, medical records

Kerry appeared to be responding to critics who suspected that there might be damaging information in the file about his activities in Vietnam. The military and medical records, however, appear identical to what Kerry has already released. This marks the first time Kerry’s grades have been publicly reported.

The transcript shows that Kerry’s freshman-year average was 71. He scored a 61 in geology, a 63 and 68 in two history classes, and a 69 in political science. His top score was a 79, in another political science course. Another of his strongest efforts, a 77, came in French class.

Under Yale’s grading system in effect at the time, grades between 90 and 100 equaled an A, 80-89 a B, 70-79 a C, 60 to 69 a D, and anything below that was a failing grade. In addition to Kerry’s four D’s in his freshman year, he received one D in his sophomore year. He did not fail any courses.

‘’I always told my Dad that D stood for distinction,” Kerry said yesterday in a written response to questions, noting that he has previously acknowledged that he spent a lot of time learning to fly instead of focusing on his studies.

Kerry’s weak grades came despite years of education at some of the world’s most elite prep schools, ranging from Fessenden School in Massachusetts to St. Paul’s School in New Hampshire.
———————-

Hahahahaha!!! Kerry “strong in French..” no surprise there, huh? Told his dad a grade of ‘D’ meant “distinction”, huh? Hahaha. Maybe his dad smoked as much pot as Kerry did and believed his fairy tale?

“Updated: 02:24 PM EST

“Abstinence Message Goes Beyond Teens
“Government Targets Singles Up to Age 29

“By Sharon Jayson, USA TODAY

“(Oct. 31) — The federal government’s ‘no sex without marriage’ message isn’t just for kids anymore. Now the government is targeting unmarried adults up to age 29 as part of its abstinence-only programs, which include millions of dollars in federal money … for 2007.

” … critics say it’s a clear signal of a … policy targeting the sexual behavior of adults. ‘They’ve stepped over the line of common sense,’ said James Wagoner, president of Advocates for Youth, a Washington, D.C.-based non-profit that supports sex education. ‘To be preaching abstinence when 90% of people are having sex is … to lose touch with reality. … It has nothing to do with public health.’

“Abstinence education programs … teach that abstaining from sex is the only … method to prevent pregnancy or disease. They give no instruction on birth control or safe sex. …

“Sarah Brown, director of the National Campaign to Prevent Teen Pregnancy, says abstinence programs are among many messages that have helped reduce teen pregnancy rates. But ‘the notion that the federal government is supporting millions of dollars worth of messages to people who are grown adults about how to conduct their sex life is a very divisive policy,’ she says.

“‘We would oppose any program that stigmatizes unmarried people, adds Nicky Grist, executive director of the Alternatives to Marriage Project, a non-profit organization based in Brooklyn, N.Y., that advocates for the rights of unmarried people.

For last year’s state grants, Congress appropriated $50 million. A similar amount is expected for 2007 ….”

Yes! Time for a quick quiz on (Oh No!) POLITICS! I know, you don’t want to hear about crappy politics when you come to my page, but this, well, I just can’t resist.

Before I quiz, I declare…. I am not a member of ANY political party.

There’s been alot of mud slinging going on lately, and I pretty much ignore all that sh*t. But then I came across this ‘statement’ in the news today, and I tell you, it’s the final straw for me.

So here’s the quiz question;
Can you tell me which retarded asshole made the following statement…

..””You know, education, if you make the most of it, you study hard, you do your homework and you make an effort to be smart, you can do well. If you don’t, you get stuck in Iraq.”

Uh huh. What an asshole. Well… do you know who it was? Just WHO WAS THE ASSHOLE WHO SAID

Just WHO WAS THE ASSHOLE WHO SAID THIS, BASHING ON THE MEN AND WOMEN OF THE UNITED STATES ARMED FORCES WHO VOLUNTEER TO DEFEND THIS NATION AND VENTURE INTO HARMS WAY TO DO IT???

I DON’T GIVE A FLYING RATS ASS IF YOU SUPPORT THIS LOSERS POLITICAL PARTY. THAT’S YOUR BUSINESS. IF YOU SUPPORT HIS STATEMENT HOWEVER, YOU’RE AN ASSHOLE.”

Oooooo … megabrad … did I infringe a copyright? Woo-hooo!!! Sue me; I say it’s Fair Use.

P.S., I’m not a member of a political party either. But that doesn’t stop me from voting a 100% Democratic ticket! I used to split my ticket and vote for a Republican now and then. But that was before the GOP was hijacked by traitors and turned into a fascist party. I can see why megabrad won’t admit being a Republican. I wouldn’t admit that either, if I was him. Thank God I’m not him!

Yep he is still anger over the Swift-Boat crew torpedoing this election chances last time around. Just Like you Thumper still angry after the War end many years ago.

Military Intelligence
By Christopher Beam
Posted Tuesday, Oct. 31, 2006, at 6:10 PM ET
Bloggers get heated over Sen. John Kerry’s remarks about the military. They also theorize about a recent madrasah bombing in Pakistan and laugh at Fox’s premature announcement of Studio 60′s demise.
Military intelligence: During a speech endorsing California gubernatorial candidate Phil Angelides at Pasadena City College yesterday, Sen. John Kerry encouraged students to work hard in school lest they “get stuck in Iraq.” White House press secretary Tony Snow called Kerry’s remarks “an absolute insult,” and Sen. John McCain said the former presidential candidate “owes an apology” to U.S. troops. Conservative bloggers go to town.
Neddy at the conservative Kerfuffles translates Kerry’s comments thusly: “Because you were lazy and dumb in school, you are now in Iraq. Oh, by the way, ‘thank you for your service’ and ‘we support the troops.’ Vote for us at the polls so we can bring you home.”

I don’t think Obama should run for president. Not yet. It’s not enough to be electable, you have to be able to govern. State legislature experience plus two years in the U.S. Senate is not enough preparation for the White House. He needs more seasoning and experience before he’s ready for the Big Job. Obama would be a compelling candidate if he served as Illinois governor before running for president — a big-state heartland governor with Senate experience would make a fantastic candidate!

Now all those years teaching them political correctness and they turn on you like rabid dogs Mr. Manhas had the right idea but lack the support from the school board and the teachers union. Now they will close the schools down and bus their undisciplined brats to the Eastside for an education. Wow Goldy your daughter will now have a future after all when she learns math, spelling, English, and reading. The school district will now be divided into four districts with new superintends earning about quarter the income. The Teacher Union should be excluded from representing the teachers for six years and the teacher should all reapply for their new jobs. Last but not least the parents should all be sent to political reeducation camps and educated on manners plus plain respect.

P-I COLUMNIST
“Go back to India!” a crazed man shouted at last week’s Seattle School Board meeting. The verbal blast flew like buckshot at Raj Manhas, the beleaguered superintendent of Seattle Public Schools. What Manhas thought when those words peppered him was probably along these lines — no job is worth putting up with mean-spirited and personally petty rudeness.
What he said Monday — that he was quitting “in the interests of my family” — was surprise news that a few in Seattle might have seen coming.
The ignorant words at the meeting drew last blood, but Manhas was never really comfortable in his public skin.

While yer at it, please answer the following:

1) How does a gas heavier than air somehow rise thirty fucking miles into the atomosphere. Explain the transport mechanism in some detail.

2) Explain how the 1% of man made gases puts it over the edge.

3) Explain why the “scientists” who promote this shit can’t get the reaction between ozone and fluorine to work in the lab.

4) Explain how you get ozone depletion data when it’s not actually measured.

5) Explain why there is no increase in rates of skin cancer. Explain why the plants that should be impacted aren’t.

I wonder why Stefan never writes anything on his blog about GOP dirty tricks. Do you suppose it’s because he’s nothing but a partisan propagandist like me? Except the difference between me and Stefan is I don’t put up with Democratic dishonesty, corruption, or dirty tricks. For example, I criticized those Milwaukee Democrats who slashed tires! The tires didn’t do anything; the tires were innocent. They should have gone inside the building and slashed the Republicans throats instead — HEY JUST KIDDING!!! Ann Coulter gets paid for writing shit like that; I’m just an unpaid amateur who does it for fun. If she can do it for money, why can’t I do it for kicks? After all, since Coulter is a Republican and all the Republicans wildly cheered her for cracking jokes about killing liberals, they established the precedent for this kind of thing.

They were too busy running up the country credit card. So my thinking is that Americans who vote really want this stuff. More Katrina horrors, please. More people in debt please. More uneducated people in low paying jobs please. Either that, or they’re brainwashed.

President Bush entered office, the total federal debt – including debt to the public and debt owed the Social Security system – has risen from $5.7 trillion to $8.6 trillion.

http://taxprof.typepad.com/.shared/image.html?/photos/uncategorized/re venue20growth.jpg

Why does this chart report tax receipts of $2.15 Trillion for 2005? Why are your numbers so depressed? Maybe Furball you are depressing!

Why do you not post the $2.41 Trillion for 2006?

The Treasury’s data revealed that the federal government spent $2.65 trillion in FY 2006 and collected $2.41 trillion. Individual income tax receipts totalled $1.04 trillion compared to $927 billion collected in FY 2005 and the $997.6 billion originally estimated in the FY 2006 budget. Corporate tax receipts totalled $354 billion, up from $278.3 billion in FY 2005 and the $277.1 billion originally estimated in the FY 2006 budget. The rest was other receipts.

“You gotta love Robin Williams…… Even if he’s
nuts! Leave it to Robin Williams to come up with
the perfect plan. What we need now is for our UN
Ambassador to stand up and repeat this message.
He is seen wearing a t-shirt saying “I love New
York!” written in arabic.

Robin Williams’ plan…(Hard to argue with this
logic!)

“I see a lot of people yelling for peace but I
have not heard of a plan for peace. So, here’s
one plan.”

1) “The US will apologize to the world for our
“interference” in their affairs, past & present.
You know, Hitler, Mussolini, Stalin, Tojo,
Noriega, Milosevic, Hussein, and the rest of
those “good ole boys”, we will never “interfere”
again.

2) We will withdraw our troops from all over the
world, starting with Germany , South Korea , the
Middle East, and the Philippines . They don’t
want us there. We would station troops at our
borders. No one allowed sneaking through holes
in the fence.

3) All illegal aliens have 90 days to get their
affairs together and leave.We’ll give them a free
trip home. After 90 days the remainder will be
gathered up and deported immediately, regardless
of whom or where they are. They’re illegal!!!
France will welcome them.

4) All future visitors will be thoroughly checked
and limited to 90 days unless given a special
permit!!!! No one from a terrorist nation will
be allowed in. If you don’t like it there,
change it yourself and don’t hide here. Asylum
would never be available to anyone. We don’t
need any more cab drivers or 7-11 cashiers.

5) No foreign “students” over age 21. The older
ones are the bombers. If they don’t attend
classes, they get a “D” and it’s back home baby.

6) The US will make a strong effort to become
self-sufficient energy wise. This will include
developing nonpolluting sources of energy but
will require a temporary drilling of oil in the
Alaskan wilderness. The caribou will have to
cope for a while.

7) Offer Saudi Arabia and other oil producing
countries $10 a barrel for their oil. If they
don’t like it, we go someplace else. They can go
somewhere else to sell their production. (About
a week of the wells filling up the storage sites
would be enough.)

8) If there is a famine or other natural
catastrophe in the world, we will not
“interfere.” They can pray to Allah or whomever,
for seeds, rain, cement or whatever they need.
Besides most of what we give them is stolen or
given to the army. The people who need it most
get very little, if anything.

9) Ship the UN Headquarters to an isolated island
someplace. We don’t need the spies and fair
weather friends here. Besides, the building would
make a good homeless shelter or lockup for
illegal aliens.

10) All Americans must go to charm and beauty
school. That way, no one can call us “Ugly
Americans” any longer. The Language we speak is
ENGLISH…learn it…or LEAVE…Now, isn’t that a
winner of a plan?

“The Statue of Liberty is no longer saying “Give
me your tired, your poor, your huddled masses.”
She’s got a baseball bat and she’s yelling, ‘you
want a piece of me?’ ”

If you agree with the above forward it to

As further evidence of Reichert’s poor voting record when it comes to Veterans. The IAVA ( Iraq and Afghanistan Veterans of America ) rated his voting record a [b]D+[/b].

(copied from IAVA’s website to explain how they derived their ratings)

Each IAVA Congressional Rating is based on a given legislator’s voting history on issues that affect US Troops, Iraq and Afghanistan war veterans and military families.

To calculate the Ratings, IAVA reviewed all legislation voted on in the Congress since September 11, 2001. For each piece of legislation that affected troops, veterans or military families, IAVA took a position either in support of, or in opposition to its passage. The letter grades were derived, using the scales below, from the percentage of times that each legislator’s vote matched the official IAVA stance.

A total of 169 House votes and 155 Senate votes were used to determine the ratings. You can view all of this legislation, either in a complete list or grouped by session, by clicking here. http://capwiz.com/iava/keyvotes.xc/?lvl=C

IAVA is a non-partisan, non-profit organization. These ratings were determined using a simple and transparent mathematical formula.

House
A+ 97-100
A 93-96
A- 90-92
B+ 87-89
B 83-86
B- 80-82
C+ 77-79

C 70-73
C- 66-69
D+ 62-65
D 58-61
D- 55-57
F Below 55

These scales are based on a traditional grading scale. Due to the nature and high number of unanimous consent agreements in the Senate, we adjusted the grading scale to ensure an even distribution of grades.

Information on Sample Legislation
TRICARE for Reservists
(108th Congress; Senate vote #282; July 16, 2003)
# Senators who voted in favor of this amendment were voting to allow Reservists and National Guard soldiers to buy-into the Defense Department’s health insurance plan at subsidized rates. IAVA supported this legislation.
# TRICARE is the Defense Department’s health insurance plan that is available at no cost to soldiers serving on active duty. Reservists and National Guard soldiers who are mobilized receive free TRICARE for a short period of time before and after their deployments. In 2003, a GAO report stated that 20% of these soldiers did not have health care insurance. This legislation was designed to address that problem.
# The Senate’s plan was adopted and enacted into law.

TRICARE for Reservists
(109th Congress; House vote # 221; May 25, 2005)
# Representatives who voted in favor of this motion were voting to extend free health care to all Reserve and National Guard soldiers. IAVA supported this legislation.
# After 2003 (see above), Congress extended TRICARE to allow Reservists and National Guard soldiers to buy-in at subsidized rates, dependent on their deployment status. Still many soldiers have not bought into the system and lack health insurance coverage.
# Although the medical readiness of the Reserves and National Guard is vital to the security of this nation, Congress refused to extend free TRICARE coverage to Reservists and National Guard soldiers.

Military Death Gratuity
(109th Congress; Senate vote #92; April 13, 2005)
# Senators who voted FOR this motion were voting AGAINST increasing the amount of money a spouse or family member receives when their loved one is killed in Iraq or Afghanistan. IAVA opposed this motion, which would have eliminated the proposed increase.
# Prior to this bill, the family of a US troop killed in action would only receive a $12,000 death gratuity from the government. This bill would increase that amount to $100,000.
# The motion was defeated, and the plan was adopted and enacted into law.

Funding for TBI Research
(109th Congress; Senate vote #222; August 2, 2006)
# Senators who voted FOR this motion were voting AGAINST increasing funding for Traumatic Brain Injury research by $2 million. IAVA opposed this motion.
# Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) has become the signature wound of the Iraq war. In a spending bill appropriating more than $400 billion, in a war that has cost hundreds of billions of dollars and counting, it is unconscionable that Congress can’t find an extra $2 million to treat an injury affecting more than 100,000 American Troops.
# Despite a clear need for greater funding for TBI research, this motion passed.

Why is he always trying to leave his Law practice, to get elected?
Is it hard work Richard?
Or like any Republican, you feel the big money is working in government, and getting the lobbyist money for your retirement.

Here’s what I posted over at Sleaze central. They don’t have values to post on, only fear.

As for Dope on rope Pope at 24

Maybe as private citizens they don’t want the sleaze like you and the guppy prying into their personal lives in attempt to ruin them.
(Hey maybe that’s why they want to protect the constitution?)
As for you, you ARE running for office, and when you put up sign with your name on them enough time, you gain name recognition.
At least this time you were smart enough not to put the (R) like your pals Mike! and Sheriff Hairdo don’t want to do either.

So why is it that Goldy likes you? I don’t know. You’re an often reprimanded attorney, and a perenial candidate for any position out there.
This probably leads to your failure to give adequate council to your clients. (I’d love to see your referral list, mostly from jail I suspect) Goldy must relate to you because you are both single fathers.

But you are a Candidate. So did you kill your wife, or beat or cheat on her? Are your divorce or murder trial papers open for us to look at?
Where can I go look them up, and get them published?

You want to be a Judge with those qualifications?
What is it a Daddy Bush thing? You want to get back at them for beating the hell out of an unqualified attorney as a Judge?
Come on Repugs, we know you love money more than anything, can you imagine the cost of appeals from this judges rulings?
Any attorney would be a fool not to file on a Pope ruling, the odds are in their favor, he does not know the law and is most likely wrong.

Come on, how about a little public disclosure on you. Let everyone know that you are a professional candidate with a worse record than the 62 Mets. You have multiple reprimands for failures in court, and that you beat your wife.

I can’t believe that those little red signs are doing the trick for you. It is definetely not your ACTUAL qualifications.

I think if you get in, It just shows how lazy the populice is in finding out about the candidates.

I think I will file my grievance now, that your signs are still out on the streets well after the time, by Law (the thing your running for, in case you didn’t know) need to be removed.
I think those come with a cash penalty per sign.

Yours and the guppies dirty sleaze hunts, make it why good people don’t run for office. Then we are left with the likes of you.

WASHINGTON — A federal appeals court ruled Tuesday that U.S. Rep. Jim McDermott violated federal law by turning over an illegally taped telephone call to reporters nearly a decade ago.
In a 2-1 opinion, the U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia ruled that McDermott violated the rights of House Majority Leader John Boehner, who was heard on the 1996 call involving former House Speaker Newt Gingrich.
The court ordered McDermott to pay Boehner more than $700,000 for leaking the taped conversation. The figure includes $60,000 in damages and more than $600,000 in legal costs.

PORT COMMISSIONERS MOVE TO FATTEN CEO’S PENSION

The Seattle Fish Wrapper reports:

“Mic Dinsmore is paid more than any other top executive at a major U.S. port, and he’s due to retire in less than six months. Today Port of Seattle commissioners … consider awarding him a … raise that would … lock in an extra $3,000 a year in future state pension benefits.

“If he gets the raise, the 61-year-old Dinsmore would have a final pay packet of $339,841 a year — substantially more than his peers at other big ports — and more than double the $150,995 Gov. Christine Gregoire earns as chief executive of the state.

“Commission President Patricia Davis said she thinks he’s earned an annual raise, and she is confident the commission will give it to him. But several commissioners said Dinsmore’s performance as chief executive officer doesn’t merit such an increase.

“‘I’m disappointed in our financial performance this year,’ Commissioner Alec Fisken said. He cited a proposal to increase the Port’s tax levy … as well as plans to build a new cargo terminal that would require the Port to tear down an $18.2 million cruise-ship terminal opened in 2003.

“Under the Port’s pay-for-performance system, Dinsmore would need to be rated ‘outstanding’ to qualify for the top 6 percent raise. Commissioner Lloyd Hara gives Dinsmore a grade of ‘progressing,’ which carries a zero to 2 percent raise. ‘Have we had a greater tonnage through here? No,’ Hara said.

“Commissioner John Creighton said some commissioners proposed a 10 percent raise. ‘I just thought that was not warranted,’ Creighton said. Even the 6 percent proposed raise is on the high side of what he wanted, he said.”

Dinsmore also receives supplemental deferred compensation that “would be highly controversial if this were a CEO of a public corporation,” according to the article, which continues,

“The Port would not say how much Dinsmore has built up in his deferred-compensation account. But based on his contract, he apparently will receive more than $362,000 in deferred compensation from the Port in a lump sum when he retires early next year.

“Dinsmore also is enrolled in the state’s Public Employee Retirement System. Under that plan, he’s eligible for about $85,387 a year when he retires. If he gets the … raise, his annual retirement benefit would rise to about $88,395.”

For complete story and/or copyright info, see http://tinyurl.com/ynauxx

If the port commissioners want to give Dinsmore a fatter pension, they should pay for it themselves, instead of taking it out of the funds that pay my meager pension for my 30 years of drudgery in the state dungeons!

Too bad Richard Pope lost his port commissioner race. This shit wouldn’t happen if he were there. Richard is pretty close to being a cheap labor conservative — you know, those guys who think employees should work free. Since the port commissioner job is part-time, Richard might be able to handle it despite the problems in his chaotic personal life, although I think running a full-time court is another matter. That’s why I voted for your OPPONENT in the N.E. District Court race, Richard, even though you talk a good game here in the HA comment threads. But if you run for port commissioner again, I might vote for you! It would be hard to fuck up that job any worse than Davis is fucking up.

And they want us to pay TAXES to the port. Sheesh!!! That’s like paying taxes to pay basketball players’ salaries.

I love it when idiots like MTR (and his ilk) tout the “Republican Economic Recovery”. Gee, this past week the stock market finally passed early 2001 levels?

I did a quick spreadsheet calculation, which shows that if the DJIA had an average of an 8% annual return on investment for the years of the Bush administration, it should be at 18,603 by the end of the year.

Instead, we have the Republicans trying to tell us what great economomic managers they are, just because we have a stock market rally which finally breaks above the Feb. 2001 levels after SIX YEARS. Funny how the rally only occured once it was clear the Democrats were going to be in charge of the House again.

Besides, I suspect that the stock market will reverse itself after the November elections when oil prices shoot up again. If the oil prices don’t rise dramatically, its only because they know we are watching pretty closely for it now, and the oil companies might be a tad concerned about a Democratic House of Representatives holding energy hearings where the executives are actually subpoened and placed under oath.

Hey, if you Republicans are really interested in an investment which returns less than 8% over ten years, let me know. I’ve got some great ones for you. I’d like to get rich treating you the way you’ve been treating the rest of us for years!

2002 – $1,152,413,000,000
2003 – $1,069,364,000,000
2004 – $1,146,664,000,000
2005 – $1,279,114,000,000 (estimate)

Source of data: http://www.taxpolicycenter.org/TaxFacts/TFDB/TFTemplate.cfm?Docid=203

By the way, you fucking liar, I never said there was no link between revenue and tax cuts — not even close! What I said was:

A tax rate of 0% results in no revenue. A tax rate of 100% results in no revenue, because there’s no incentive for economic activity. Therefore, a tax rate somewhere between 0% and 100% produces the maximum amount of revenue. When the tax rate is below this point, as it is most of the time in a democracy, a cut in the tax rate will result in less revenue. When the tax rate is above this point, a cut in the tax rate will result in more revenue.

Now, the link between tax rates and revenue is so clear in that analysis that it grabs you by the nuts and squeezes hard — if you bother to read it. We can only assume Redneck is an illiterate fuck, because he clearly hasn’t read what I wrote.

Redneck was full of shit when he said tax cuts always increase revenue. Just look at the numbers above. Hell, look at HIS number, unadjusted for FICA revenue! It took five years for gross federal revenues to catch up with where they were before Bush’s tax cuts. And you know why they’re catching up? Three reasons:

1) Higher corporate tax collections on record corporate profits. (Note: Republicans want to eliminate corporate taxes.)

2) Higher individual tax collections from CEOs skimming record salaries off corporate profits. (Note: A significant amount of CEO income was stolen from shareholders by backdating options.)

3) Population growth. More people = bigger economy = more tax revenues. Duh-uh.

Bush’s tax cuts did NOT produce higher revenues — they produced record deficits … and inflation. Fucking liar.

George Soros Takes Aim at Israel

Billionaire investor George Soros is leading a move to stitch together an American Jewish political lobby that is “anti-Israel,” according to a column in the Jerusalem Post.

Soros, who spent millions attempting to defeat President Bush in 2004, is one of a “tiny minority of American Jews” who have played a role in undermining support for Israel in the Democratic Party, and they now seek “to undermine Israel’s position in the U.S. in general,” Caroline Glick writes in the Post.

Soros has invited another American Jewish billionaire, Peter Lewis, along with “North American Jewish plutocrats” like Charles and Edgar Bronfman, to join forces with him and leftist Jewish American organizations – including American Friends of Peace Now, the Israel Policy Forum and Brit Tzedek v’Shalom – to construct a political lobby that will weaken the influence of the pro-Israel lobby.

“Many of the individuals and organizations associated with the initiative have actively worked to undermine Israel,” Glick writes.

“Soros caused a storm in 2003 when, during a fund-raising conference for Israel, he alleged that Israel was partially responsible for the rise in anti-Semitic violence in Europe because of its harsh response to Palestinian terrorism.”

Glick also points out that in November 2005, the leaders of the Israel Policy Forum met with Condoleezza Rice and urged her to dismiss Israel’s security concerns regarding two of the Gaza Strip’s border crossing points. As a result, Rice pressured Israel to make dangerous concessions to the Palestinians.

And after Hamas’ electoral victory in January, American Friends of Peace Now, Israel Policy Forum and Brit Tzedek v’Shalom worked to shield the Hamas-led Palestinian Authority from Congressional sanctions.

Together they worked to torpedo the Palestinian Anti-Terror Act, which enjoyed overwhelming support in the Congress and was designed to update American policy toward the Palestinian

Authority in the wake of Hamas’ ascendance to power.
Among its provisions, the bill called for an immediate end to U.S. assistance to nongovernmental and U.N. organizations operating in the PA that had connections to terrorist organizations.

Due to the lobbying efforts of the “Jewish leftists,” the Palestinian Anti-Terror Act was eventually scuttled, Glick notes, adding:
“Soros would like to institutionalize the ad-hoc coalition’s success in undermining the Palestinian Anti-Terror Act in a new lobby.

“While its Jewish founders insist that they are pro-Israel, the fact of the matter is that they are about to establish an American Jewish anti-Israel lobby.”

I’ve already been commended by friends and Senator Cantwell in person for my personal commitment to helping Americans exercise their right to vote, but I’ll accept your apology.

But man! — you should see the letters column in today’s ST editorial section. It appears NO ONE wrote in supporting the paper’s endorsement of RubberStampReichert, because every single letter they published today on that subject takes their endorsement to task.

For example:

Robert Stagman, Mercer Island, wrote:

“The Times’ endorsement of Dave Reichert for Congress in the 8th District … is a travesty reflecting your decision to ignore … his radical and intolerant positions…” (examples follow).

Stephen Hendricks, Sammamish, wrote:

“The Times has endorsed … Reichert … based largely, it appears, on his independence from the Bush administration. Unfortunately, while Reichert has demonstrated a willingness to vote against the Bush administration on a handful of issues where his vote was not decisive, the fact remains that a vote for him is a vote for Speaker of the House Dennis Hastert, the rest of the Republican leadership in the House and the disastrous policies of the Bush administration. … As long as Reichert remains a Republican, and he has not demonstrated any ‘independence’ on that score, he no more deserves to be re-elected than the congressional leadership he supports.”

Olav Martin Kvern, Seattle, wrote:

“To say that I was surprised by The Times’ endorsement of Dave Reichert is an understatement. … Reichert has been a virtual rubber stamp for the Bush administration’s foreign-policy agenda. He has gone against the administration only on relatively safe (in political terms) domestic issues, but on every other matter he blindly followed his party. … He has voted with his party more than 90 percent of the time. That’s not what I’d call ‘a conscience-driven independent streak.’ If Reichert cannot stand up to his party on fundamental moral, ethical and political issues, what can he stand up for?”

Joanne Gainen, Bellevue, wrote:

“I am surprised that The Times endorses incumbent Dave Reichert over the challenger, Darcy Burner. … He claims not to be aligned with George Bush but brought him here to raise funds for his campaign. I have heard no evidence that he speaks out against unfair, abusive and foolhardy administration actions and policies.”

Tom Boyle, Mount Vernon, wrote:

“As a fiscally conservative moderate, who voted for Republican Dino Rossi …, I agreed with almost everything in The Times’ endorsement of Dave Reichert for the 8th District congressional seat. … However, it also shows why Western Washington voters need to vote for Darcy Burner: There is no way the voters in Eastern Washington will remove someone like Rep. Doc Hastings, R-Pasco. That means it is up to the voters in the west to do everything possible to ensure that the Republican Party is not the majority party in the House or the Senate. These Republicans have shown they are nothing but rubber stamps for the Karl Rove/Dick Cheney/George Bush agenda …. That is why, unfortunately, Western Washington voters … should vote for … Darcy Burner.”

You’d think that if even ONE PERSON wrote in support of Frank’s endorsement of No-Estate-Tax Reichert, the Seattle Times would publish it. After all, newspapers like “balance” in their letters columns. But geez — even the Rossi voter doesn’t support Frank’s call on this one.

It must be because most folks think there are more important issues in the world than getting rid of the estate tax.

The Seattle Times editorial page endorsed Rep. Cathy McMorris today. For sheer laughability, it would be hard to top the nonsense Frank Blethen wrote about RubberStampReichert, but he accomplished it with this line in today’s screed:

“As McMorris gets more traction in Congress, we’d like to see her be a more autonomous Republican in the vein of Congressman Dave Reichert, R-Auburn.”

http://tinyurl.com/yag7dh

Of course, there’s a hidden agenda here. As British statements Benjamin Disraeli once said, “Everyone has two reasons for what he does — a good reason, and the real reason.” (or words to that effect) Despite his reasonable-sounding arguments on behalf of McMorris, Frank’s real reason for placing his rubberstamp of approval on McMorris is he wants the GOP to retain control of Congress in hopes they’ll repeal the estate tax. Frank is utterly, consumingly obsessed with the estate tax. Makes you wonder if his doctors told him something the rest of us don’t know, e.g. he’s knocking on the Pearly Gates.

The Burner/Reichert debate was very interesting. Hundreds of people were turned away. Reichert, in fact, did better than I expected. He received snickers only on his response that we were in Iraq “because we’d been attacked”.

When asked whether he supported a pharmacist’s “right” to refuse dispensing BIRTH CONTROL, emphasis mine, to distinguish it, as if necessary, from the morning after pill, his entire answer was,”yes”.

He was asked about the proposed legislation to increase local ownership of media, i.e. reduce media consolidation and concentration, he actually said he was not informed on the issue and would “have to take a pass on the question”.

Had there been anyone in the audience who had not known of his 33 years of service to the community, there is no doubt that after the first, or second, or third, fourth, etc. response, they would have clearly known……

Darcy did a good job of pointing out the close ties between Reichert and Bush. It was rather funny that after stressing his independent thinking, when Darcy pointed out his 90% agreement with Bush he could only rebut by saying it wasn’t 90% it was 86% and some of those votes had also been taken by Democrats, so they must have been Bush democrats.

The funniest part of the debate probably occurred when the moderator asked Reichert about campaign finance reform and Reichert answered with a mealy mouthed non response about lobbying reform. Darcy heard the question that was asked, and responded adequately.

I thought her analysis of his chairmanship of the homeland protection/first responder communication stuff was pretty telling.

At the close of the moderated section, each was offered the opportunity to ask the other a question. Reichert questioned her brief resume and commitment to community and pointed out his…….33 years of commitment to the community. Darcy posed a rather convoluted question pointing out his shifting stances on ANWAR, stem cells, global warming and asking how could we trust his integrity if there was none. She should have been better prepared for that.

Each had a three minute closing statement. Darcy hit all the usual highlights, and when supporters applauded, the moderator said he would give Reichert extra time, even though Darcy had not exceeded her time limit.

The moderator was rather poor. He called Darcy Ms. Brunner, until he was corrected by the audience. At one point he asked “Bill” to answer the question, and Reichert rescued him on that. When he gave Reichert extra time because Burner supporters clapped, even though Darcy had not exceeded her time, partisan observers were a little peeved(including moi). He rambled a little at one point, apparently to give Reichert an ooportunity to pull his thoughts together.

The audience then submitted questions. There were interesting questions that almost got asked. There were interesting answers that almost got said.

The most surprising factoid of the evening for me was when asked about the second amendment, Darcy said not only did she own a gun and know how to use it, but she had a concealed carry permit.
She expressed her support for the use of guns for self protection, but drew the line at assault type weapons. Reichert talked about his 33 years of blah blah blah and his support of the use of weapons to defend others.

Mr. Shelton, a radiologist now living in North Carolina, said that on a hunting trip Mr. Allen had sought out the home of an African-American and affixed the head of a dead deer to the mailbox.

The Seattle chapter of Drinking Liberally meets tonight (and every Tuesday), 8PM at the Montlake Ale House, 2307 24th Avenue E. Our intrepid leader Nick sent out an email implying that we’ll have a breathalyzer at tonight’s event, so perhaps we’ll finally have our first annual Mike McGavick Drink Off to see exactly what it takes to get to a 0.17 blood-alcohol level. Once again I’m offering a free copy of Sen. Byron Dorgan’s new book, Take This Job and Ship It to the first person to show up with a functioning breathalyzer, and a free ride home to our victim.

And FYI, we may not be recording a Podcasting Liberally this week as our producers Richard and Gavin are both out of town, and Richard’s ETA is rather tentative. So if you’ve got some good recording gear and would like the honor of being Producer for A Day, come on down.

3) The only reason why this story is interesting at all and why anyone should give a rats’ ass about what the NAM says about anything is that their charter members include India and China who are supposed to take over as the Heads of The Free(ish) World one of these days, or so one would believe if one read the newspaper quickly and uncritically.

If you think the US can defy gravity (metaphorically) and ignore history by remaining the sole superpower indefinitely, the NAM is nothing more the outburst of a bunch of juveniles who are mad that nobody takes them seriously.

Jeff Gannon was the pseudonym used by male prostitute James Guckert as he spent two years as a White House shill posing as a reporter in the WH press room, who for that two years was the recipient of WH press day passes (thus conveniently avoiding those annoying and embarrassing background checks), and who lobbed fawning GOP talking points disguised as “press” question to the president. He also spent many of his days as a WH visitor doing God knows what kinds of fun things (what DOES a male prostitute do as a guest of Ken Melman, anyway?).

Posted earlier, but worth repeaing. Latest Rasmussen poll:

Maria Cantwell – 52%
Mike McGavick – 35%

“The current survey is the first conducted since McGavick’s admission of a drunk driving incident earlier in his life.

These results mark the first time since February that Cantwell has reached the 50% level of voter support. Rasmussen Reports is now shifting this race from “Leans Democrat” to “Democrat” in our Senate Balance of Power ratings.”

A re-post from an earlier topic, but since that one had pretty much run its course, I thought I should post it again.

I’m not that concerned about whether McGavick won a track race, or won a state championship. Its a bit like a fish story to me, where the importance of the race was magnified with re-telling.

But I missed another point in previous readings, which finally hit me this morning: there is no way Mike could have trained for track the summer after his senior year in high school and received a track scholarship.

First of all, I my daughter earned a rowing scholarship. Like track, they do the longer distances in the fall (called cross-country in track), and shorter distances in the spring. She was recruited by colleges during the summer BEFORE her senior year, making official visits to colleges in the fall and early winter of her senior year, and signing an NCAA letter of commitment in the early spring. By spring of her senior year, all the available scholarships are gone. There are none available to someone who shows up at college that fall and asks to be considered for a scholarship.

If a person wants to earn a scholarship, then they have to “walk on” to the team, train and compete for a year, and hope to be offered a scholarship for next year. But this is very hard to do, because coaches want to use scholarships to entice a potential star to come to the school, not to pay for someone who is already at the school. Unless the athlete is a real superstar and is consideraing a transfer, the coach will hold out the prospect of a scholarship for future years, but gamble that the athlete will not want to change schools after already completing a year or two at their program. (Note: UW women’s rowing program operates differently in this respect).

So Mike’s chances of earning a track scholarship by training in the summer after his senior year are virtually nil. Perhaps I’ve got the details wrong, and he’s talking about the summer before his junior year? But then the reference to the state track championship earned in his senior year would be out of place. Or perhaps Mike never looked into what it would take to get a scholarship, and just assumed he could have gotten one if he had trained for it?

Did he try out for the track team in college? If so, why didn’t he get a scholarship then? I would think he could have spent the fall and winter “training” while he was in college, and then “walk on” to the team in the spring?

Finally, why would Mike! have to quit work to train for a track scholarship? My daughter continued to work part-time in high school while rowing, and worked full-time during the summers. At one point she was in school, in the band, working part-time, and rowing – all at the same time. I never tried out for a college scholarship in swimming, but while I was in high school I still did two-a-day practices during the summer while working full time, and practicing three days a week in the winter while working part-time and going to school.

Now track isn’t one of those sports like football or basketball, where you need everyone together at the same time. You can train just about anytime you can fit it into your schedule, especially during the long summer days around here. Heck, my daughter still goes for an hour-long run every night when she gets home from work in the summer.

So Mike! is trying to make it sound like he sacrificed so much because he had to work. What it shows me is that Mike really expected to party his senior year, under the pretext of “training for track”, but his dad saw through that, and was determined he wasn’t going to waste his summer partying.

In that respect, Mike! probably isn’t much different from a lot of graduating seniors. But now he wants to get “character” credit for spending a summer pumping gas. Well, “Mike!”, welcome to the real world. Most of us worked summers, and many of us worked part-time during the school year, even if some of the classmates where you went to school didn’t.

I think “Mike!’s story of winning a track race got exaggerated in re-telling, from winning a race in a non-sanctioned meet to “winning the state championship”. He probably told the story a hundred times, and somebody asked him why he didn’t run track in college. Well, if he was so good, he had to come up with some excuse, so he complained that he couldn’t “train” because he had to work that summer pumping gas. But he’s told the expanded story so many times, he’s forgotten that most of it isn’t true, and so many have accepted what he says at face value, he’s forgotten that in a Senate campaign, everything he says will be checked for accuracy. So now he’s “offended” about how “uncivil” the campaigns have become.

Again, if this was a story he wanted to tell his friends and family, its no big deal. Its not a campaign issue. It’s just another “fish” story. But he made it the issue by giving it as an example of his “character”. So now we are beginning to see his true character.

WEST PALM BEACH, Fla. – A teenager accused of raping an 8-year-girl and leaving her for dead in an abandoned landfill has been declared mentally incompetent and unfit to stand trial.

ADVERTISEMENT

Palm Beach County Circuit Judge Edward Garrison ordered Milagro Cunningham, 18, committed to a treatment facility of the Department of Children and Families. The order, issued Thursday, requires the agency to report on Cunningham’s condition within six months.

Cunningham, a native of the Bahamas, was charged as an adult with attempted first-degree murder, sexual battery, kidnapping and other counts. He had been held without bail since his arrest in May 2005, when he was 17.

Police discovered the girl under chunks of concrete at a landfill May 22, 2005, about seven hours after she was reported missing from her godmother’s home. She identified Cunningham as her attacker.

Authorities said the teen confessed after initially telling police that five men in a station wagon took her.

Cunningham’s public defender argued last year that the teen comprehended and communicated “within the range of a 7- to 9-year-old child,” the Palm Beach Post reported on its Web site Monday. Two of three mental health experts appointed to evaluate him concluded that he was incompetent, according to the newspaper.

The after-hours recording at the Palm Beach County Public Defenders office would not accept an incoming message Monday night.

Officials have said Cunningham was in the country illegally but escaped the notice of immigration authorities after three burglary arrests in 2004 because his cases were handled in the juvenile justice system.

100,000 Ex-Felons Gain Right To Vote In Tennessee – In Time For November Elections

On September 5, 2006 at the Clarksville – Montgomery County Board of
Education, Building 621 Gracey Ave., Clarksville, TN, starting at 6:30 p.m.
a special panel of guests that will include:

Representatives from the Election Commission, TN Bar Association, The
Brennan Center for Justice, as well as a Former Convicted Felon who will
vote for the first time in his life, will participate in a “Get Your Right
to Vote Back” Town Hall Meeting.

What was once the country’s most confusing voter restoration system, with
six different procedures and sub-categories for restoration, has now been
streamlined into a single restoration process which will give back the
state’s 100,000 former felons their right to vote, has many of them flocking
to town hall meetings hosted by the ACLU & NAACP across the state.

The meeting is expected to be attended by Former Felons, Family Members of
Former Felons, Attorneys, Law Enforcement, City & County Officials, Judges,
Politicians, Church Clergy, Etc. and a tentatively scheduled special
appearance by TN Governor Phil Bredesen, who signed the bill into law in
June 2006.

The League of Women Voters will be on hand to conduct voter registration for
Former Felons and any other potential voters in the Community.

We urge you, the Media, to come out to cover and learn more about this
important voting rights issue. [.........................................Carl Grossman and the NAACP are "gettin out da MoFo vote"!!! Marlboros, KFC, and lots of King Cobra to wash down the KFC "crispies"!!]

I remember Tennessee, and Lamar Alexander’s election as Governor. In Tennessee there is a traditional date for the new Governor to be inaugurated, but the Legislature actually has the power to set the Inaugural Day. The Democratic leaders of the Tennessee Legislature went to Alexander and asked him to take office early. Seems they wanted to stop the outgoing Democratic Governor from selling any more pardons and emptying the Tennessee prisons…

Ah, yes, Tennessee. Where Knoxvile Democrat powerhouse Jake Butcher- who had been defeated by Lamar Alexander in an upset victory- plotted and connived with Jimmy Carter’s old friend and budget director Bert Lance on how to rip off banks without having to use a gun. Butcher was eventually sent off to federal prison with his bank declared insolvent- the fourth largest bank failure in American history.

Yes, Tennessee- home of such honest Democrats. And don’t forget the shenanigans of the brothers Harold and John Ford, either. Or of sister Ophelia.

Crashing through boundaries of space and time, here is how I foresee the conversation between McGavick and Senate Majority Leader Bill Frist (if McGavick bothers or dares to make the call):

Frist: “Hello?”

Mike: “Uh, Sen. Frist, Sir, this is Mike McGavick.”

Frist: “Mike? Mike who?”

Mike: “Mike McGavick. You know. Mike! The Republican candidate for the U.S. Senate from Washington Sate.”

Frist: “We have a Senate candidate in Washington State?”

Mike: “Uh, Yes Sir, we do. It’s me.”

Frist: “Isn’t that Cantwell’s seat?”

Mike: “Correct, Sir.”

Frist: “Oh, sorry, buddy. I didn’t realize we had found a sacrificial lamb, err, stooge, err, candidate to run for that seat.”

Mike: “Well, yes Sir, we did, and its me.

Frist: “Oh, I remember now. You’re the guy that got all the Safeco money. It took Rove and a team of lawyers a month to figure out how to turn that campaign contribution into a ‘bonus’. “

Mike: “Yes, Sir, that’s me. And I intend to earn the money when I get to the Senate, Sir.”

Frist: “Well, Mike, that’s what was intended. Make sure Safeco gets it’s money worth. Got to keep the big contributers happy, don’t we? Now, what can I do for you? Make it quick. We’re going out to dinner, and I intend to stiff the waitress on the tip….”

Mike: “Well, Sen. Frist, that’s kind of what I was going to call you about. “

Frist: “Oh?”

Mike: “Well, you see, I was making the whole minimum wage/sales tax deduction/estate tax repeal a campaign issue against Cantwell. You know, telling voters that she voted against the sales tax deduction bill, and it will cost them money.”

Frist: “Well, that’s why we did it! It’s a win-win proposition for us. We knew that there was no way in hell the minimum wage bill would pass with the estate tax repeal added to it, so it gave us a free pass to toss in a few more “hand grenades” while we are at it. This one was aimed right at Cantwell. We already had the ads scripted before the bill even made it out of the house”.

Mike: “Yes Sir, and I appreciate it. But see, now I’m in a bit of a bind.

Frist: “How can you be in a bind? We gave it to you on a silver platter! What could be easier?!”

Mike: “Well, see, when I was working for Slade Gorton, I was his campaign manager, and I made this misleading negative ad about his opponent….”

Frist: “So? That’s what you were expected to do!”

Mike: “Well, I kind of apologized for it….”

Frist: “YOU WHAT???!!!!! WHY THE HELL WOULD YOU DO A STUPID THING LIKE THAT????!!!!!”

Mike: “Well, they told me that I needed to be “more human”, and that if I apologized for some minor things, it would make it more difficult for my opponent to criticize me for it….”

Frist: “Well, I hope you didn’t do something stupid and apologize for anything else, like getting arrested for drunk driving in another state where nobody knows about it…”

Mike: “Well, Sir, I know you are busy, so instead of getting off on that tangent, I’d better get right to the point.

Frist: “Please do (getting impatient).”

Mike: “Well, it seems that since I apologized for one misleading ad, I’m getting a lot of heat from the papers about running the current misleading ad. What with Cantwell being the main sponsor of the legislation to continue the State Sales Tax Deduction and all, it IS kind of misleading to argue that she voted against it in the bill we loaded up with poison pills….”

Frist: “Well, screw the papers! Most of our voters don’t read anyway. Just keep hammering away with those ads!”

Mike: “Well, its been pointed out pretty clearly that if I really wanted the state sales tax deduction, all I had to do was ask you to have the Republicans in the House vote for Cantwell’s bill, which has already passed in the Senate.”

Frist: “So? I’m not sure I like the way this conversation is heading….”

Mike: “So, if I ask you to have the House Republicans approve the Senate bill, and they do it, then I can take credit for saving the Sales Tax Deduction!”

Frist: “You IDIOT! We don’t give a rat’s ass about the sales tax deduction! It doesn’t really affect our base anyway, it’s pocket change to them. The income tax is the only thing that concerns them! If we extend the sales tax deduction, then it might make it harder to get more income tax cuts for our rich contributors! Hell, even my own state is going to be hurt by the expiration of the state sales tax deduction, but you don’t see me trying to save it, do you????”

Mike: “But, I don’t think I can win if we don’t do it….”

Frist: “Look, Mike, I thought you were smarter than that. There is no way in hell you are going to win anyway. I’m surprised you even took the job. But just keep hammering away with those ads. Like I said, most of our supporters can’t read newspapers anyway, so it is bound to have some effect. Even though it won’t get you elected, it might bring in more contributors from Washington state we can add to our database for national fund-raising.

Just like that election challenge to your governor’s race. We knew it was all bogus, but we got our folks so riled up by blaming the Democrats for vote-stealing, the money is just pouring in! It was well worth the money we spent on it. Hell, now when somebody catches us stealing elections anywhere in the country, we just start blathering about King County, and even the newspapers get tired of it and move on.

Well, Mike, I’ve gotta go! Good Luck!”

JK at 19: Until the mid-1930′s, private utilities argued that the government should not get involved in providing electricity to the public, but they only served the cities (stringing line in rural areas was not considered profitable). The Republican administrations agreed, and much of the rural south was without power (the power companies were big supporters of the Republicans back then). Only when FDR created the Tennessee Valley Authority and the Rural Electrification Project was electricity available to most of the South. Sometimes, in the 1960′s when my mother would turn on the lights in our house, she would mutter, “Thank God for FDR and TVA!” I thought this was rather strange, until I visited some of her relatives and they all did the same.

So after that, the South was solidly Democratic through the 1970′s. Even though the Civil Rights movement caused some splits in the Democratic party, even Wallace wouldn’t run as a Republican, he would rather try a third-party run for the Presidency instead.

Unfortunately, this meant that any Republican who wanted to get elected to public office had to pretend he was a Democrat. It wasn’t until Lamar Alexander was elected that the Republicans found they could get elected to office in Tennessee.

I think its much better, now. Now all the crooks in Tennessee are free to call themselves Republicans, and you know where they stand.

“In unusually explicit terms, Rumsfeld portrayed the administration’s critics as suffering from ‘moral or intellectual confusion’ about what threatens the nation’s security and accused them of lacking the courage to fight back.

“In remarks to several thousand veterans at the American Legion’s national convention, Rumsfeld recited what he called the lessons of history, including the failed efforts to appease the Adolf Hitler regime in the 1930s. ‘I recount this history because once again we face similar challenges in efforts to confront the rising threat of a new type of fascism,’ he said.”

Re: # 19: Phone call from Mike “I’ve Got Mine” McGavick to Sen. Frist, Repubican House Majority Leader:

Sen. Frist: Hello?
Mike: Uh, Sen. Frist, Sir, this is Mike McGavick.
Sen. Frist: Mike? Mike who?
Mike: Mike McGavick. You know. Mike! The Republican candidate for Senate from Washington Sate.
Sen. Frist: We have a Senate candidate in Washington State?
Mike: Uh, Yes Sir, we do. It’s me.
Sen. Frist: Isn’t that Cantwell’s seat?
Mike: Correct, Sir.
Sen. Frist: Oh, sorry, buddy. I didn’t realize we had found a sacrificial lamb, er, stooge, er, candidate to run for that seat.
Mike: Well, yes Sir, we did, and its me.
Sen. Frist: Oh, I remember now. You’re the guy that got all the Safeco money. It took Rove and a team of lawyers a month to figure out how to turn that campaign contribution into a “bonus”.
Mike: Yes, Sir, that’s me. And I intend to earn the money when I get to the Senate, Sir.
Sen. Frist: Well, Mike, that’s what was intended. Make sure Safeco gets it’s money worth. Now, what can I do for you? Make it quick. We’re going out to dinner, and I intend to stiff the waitress on the tip….
Mike: Well, Sen. Frist, that’s kind of what I was going to call you about.
Sen. Frist: Oh?
Mike: “Well, you see, I was making the whole minimum wage/sales tax deduction/estate tax repeal a campaign issue against Cantwell. You know, telling voters that she voted against the bill, and cost them money.”
Sen. Frist: “Well, that’s why we did it! It’s a win-win proposition for us. We knew that there was no way in hell the minimum wage bill would pass with the estate tax repeal added to it, so it gave us a free pass to toss in a few more “hand grenades” while we are at it. This one was aimed right at Cantwell. We already had the ads scripted before the bill even made it out of the house”.
Mike: Yes Sir, and I appreciate it. But see, now I’m in a bit of a bind.
Sen. Frist: How can you be in a bind? We gave it to you on a silver platter! What could be easier!
Mike: Well, see, when I was working for Slade Gorton, I was his campaign manager, and I made this misleading negative ad about his opponent….
Sen. Frist: So? That’s what you were expected to do!
Mike: Well, I kind of apologize for it….
Sen. Frist: YOU WHAT???!!!!! WHY THE HELL WOULD YOU DO A STUPID THING LIKE THAT????!!!!!
Mike: Well, they told me that I needed to be “more human”, and that if I apologized for some minor things, it would make it more difficult for my opponent to criticize me for it…
Sen. Frist: Well, I hope you didn’t do something stupid and apologize for anything else, like a DUI arrest nobody knows about…
Mike: Well, Sir, I know you are busy so I’d better get right to the point.
Sen. Frist: Please do (getting impatient).
Mike: Well, it seems that since I apologized for one misleading ad, I’m getting a lot of heat from the papers about running the current misleading ad. What with Cantwell being the main sponsor of the legislation to continue the State Sales Tax Deduction and all, it IS kind of misleading to argue that she voted against it in the bill we loaded up with poison pills….
Sen. Frist: Well, screw the papers! Most of our voters don’t read anyway. Just keep hammering away with those ads!
Mike: Well, its been pointed out pretty clearly that if I really wanted the State Sales Tax Deduction, all I had to do was ask you to have the Republicans in the House vote for Cantwell’s bill.
Sen. Frist: So? I’m not sure I like the way this conversation is heading….
Mike: So, if I ask you to have the Republicans approve the Senate bill, and they do it, then I can take credit for saving the Sales Tax Deduction!
Sen. Frist: You IDIOT! We Don’t give a rat’s ass about the sales tax deduction! It doesn’t really affect our base anyway, it’s pocket change to them. The income tax is the only thing that concerns them! If we extend the sales tax deduction, then it might make it harder to get more income tax cuts for our rich contributors!
Mike: But I don’t think I can win if we don’t do it….
Sen. Frist: Look, I thought you were smarter than that. There is no way in hell you are going to win anyway. I’m surprised you even took the job. But just keep hammering away with those ads. Like I said, most of our supporters can’t read newspapers anyway, so its bound to have some effect. Even though it won’t get you elected, it might bring in more Washington contributors we can add to our database for national fund-raising. Well, gotta go! Good Luck!

Hey, I’ve got a simple test for Mike “I’ve Got Mine” McGavick.

Have him call Sen. Frist, and tell him that it is vitally important to the Washington taxpayers, and to Mike McGavick personally, that the House adopts the Senate bill previously authored by Cantwell which will make the state sales tax deduction permanant. If he is such an effective problem-solver, surely he could convince HIS OWN PARTY to do this, in that it would benefit Sen. Frist’s home state of Tennessee, also.

After all, he convinced Safeco to pay him 28 million for two months of part-time work! This should be a walk in the park for McGavick, who must be an incredible negotiator.

Of course, if McGavick doens’t at least make the call, and support the bill, then it proves that he really doesn’t care about the Washington taxpayer, and just wants to try to create a misleading campaign issue. If McGavick makes the call, and Frist tells him to shove it, then it just demonstrates the obvious – that the Republicans didn’t want the bill to pass.

Let’s see which McGavick shows up – the partison hack, or the “moderate conservative” who cares for Washington taxpayers.

While tonight at Libs Getting Stinking Drunk, discuss another of Left Turdball’s friends on the left: “Ivy League Professor Caught with Videos That Show Him Having Sex with Children, Feds Say’

“An Ivy League business school professor is in federal custody for allegedly having videos of himself engaging in sexual acts with children, ABC News has learned.

Lawrence Scott Ward, 63, Professor Emeritus of Marketing at University of Pennsylvania’s renowned Wharton School of Business, was caught with child pornography in his luggage and on his laptop computer after arriving at Dulles International Airport on a flight from Brazil, according to court documents.

An affidavit in support of a criminal complaint filed today in federal court in Alexandria says Ward’s luggage was flagged for a more thorough inspection for possible child pornography after a customs officer noticed Ward’s “excessive” trips to Thailand. Federal agents recovered at least three DVDs, in which Ward appears to be “engaging in sexual contact” with children, the affidavit reads. A video of children as young as eight engaged in sexual activity was also allegedly found on Ward’s laptop computer.

Ward’s resume says he has been a visiting professor at Chulalongkorn University in Thailand. Federal officials believe Thailand to be a well-known destination for so-called “sex tourists” who travel there to exploit minors. Wharton’s website also lists pro bono consulting work in Brazil as one of Ward’s current projects.

According to published reports, in 1999 Ward was fined $2,500 and sentenced to five years probation on charges of attempting to promote prostitution and corrupt minors. In that case, he entered a plea which allowed him to acknowledge that there was sufficient evidence to convict him, without admitting guilt for those charges.

Ward’s resume lists several government consulting assignments including work with the Executive Office of the President, the FCC, Department of Commerce and the Special Action Office for Drug Abuse Prevention. Many of his published works deal with the effects of television advertising and marketing on children and adolescents. According to his biography, Ward has been a marketing consultant to many top companies and lists IBM, Microsoft, General Motors, Home Depot, Exxon, Citibank and Johnson & Johnson among his clients. During the 1980s, he hosted a television program, “The Wharton Business Report” on the now defunct Financial News Network. Ward’s biography also states that he was chairman of a foundation that served disadvantaged children with learning disabilities.

The University of Pennsylvania issued the following statement today, relating to Ward’s arrest, “We have just learned of the arrest of Scott Ward in Virginia. At the present time, we have very few details. We are currently gathering information about the situation and will take appropriate action as soon as we know more.”

Hey Turdball: I bet a thorough checking will show him as a member of your brother’s organization NAMBLA. Why is it most child molesters are librul? He’s a professor, he’s from a librul IVY League skuul, so he must be a moonbat!

The police were tired of a certain bar where patrons regularly over-indulged, so they decided to stake out the bar at closing time. An officer waited in his car across the street, watching patrons leave. Shortly before closing time, one patron stumbled out of the bar, obviously drunk, and took quite some time trying to find his cars, find his keys, get the keys in the door to unlock the car, then get in the car.

In the meantime, the other patrons filed out of the bar and got into their vehicles and drove away. But the officer ignored them, focusing instead on this one guy who was obviously wasted. No way was he going to drink and drive tonight!

Finally, after everyone else leaves, the drunk patron puts his keys into the ignition, and starts the engine. The officer immediatly turns on his lights and pulls in front of him, blocking his exit. “Out of the car!” he commands. The driver obeys, and the officer puts him through the normal sobriety test. Surprisingly, the driver passes easily, and doesn’t seem to be affected by his drinking at all. The officer pulls out his portable breathalyzer, and has the guy breath into it. 0.0!!!!!

“How in the hell can you be so drunk not thirty minutes ago, and be clean and sober now!” demands the officer.

“Simple, officer. I don’t drink. I’m the decoy!”

Puddybud,

Mr. Tomlinson’s ouster last November from the Corporation for Public Broadcasting was prompted by a separate investigation by that organization’s inspector general. That inquiry found evidence that Mr. Tomlinson had violated rules as he sought more conservative programs and that he improperly intervened to help the staff of The Wall Street Journal’s editorial page win a $4.1 million contract — one of the largest programming contracts issued by the corporation — to finance a weekly program on public television.

ily edited State Department report on Mr. Tomlinson’s activities at the Broadcasting Board of Governors did not specify the identity of the friend who received the improper contract at the direction of Mr. Tomlinson. Agency officials said he was a retired worker already on a government pension who was rehired by Mr. Tomlinson, without the knowledge of the board or any competitive bidding process, to work on projects for him. The employee was known by other employees as “the phantom” because he was often not at work, other agency employees said.

Full Text of Pres. Ahmadinejad’s Letter to German Chancellor

TEHRAN (Fars News Agency)- Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad recently forwarded a letter to the German Chancellor Angela Merkel.

This was President Ahmadinejad’s second letter to the heads of western states, considering an earlier one he wrote to the US President, George W. Bush.

Unlike his first letter to Bush, President Ahmadinejad in his letter to Merkel, has touched on his country’s nuclear issue, where he has stressed that Iran’s decision for the acquisition of the nuclear technology is irrevocable.

“What follows is the full text of President Ahmadinejad’s letter to the German Chancellor.”

In the Name of God, the Merciful, the Compassionate

Her Excellency Angela Merkel

The Chancellor of the Federal Republic of Germany

Excellency,

Please accept my warmest greetings.

If it had not been for Germany being a great contributor to progress in science, philosophy, literature, arts and politics;

If it had not been for a more important and positive influence of Germany in international relations and promotion of peace;

Moreover, if it had not been for the persistence of a strong will by certain global powers and special groups to constantly portray Germany as defeated and indebted country of World War II in order to continue their extortions;

And if it had not been for the presence of Your Excellency at the top of the executive branch of your country as an experienced stateswoman with bitter and sweet experiences in two dissimilar societies with different political systems and traditions,

And at the same time, if it had not been for the advantages that are limited to women, such as stronger human sentiments and certain manifestations of the divine compassion and kindness, specially in the position of a mother and being at the service of the people, and the common responsibility of all people with faith in God to defend human dignity and worth and to prevent violations of their rights and their humiliation, and proceeding from this conviction that we are all created by the Almighty and He has bestowed upon us all dignity and no one has any special privileges over the other, and under no circumstances could a society be deprived of its rights, barred from pursuit of progress and perfection or be controlled or humiliated;

Finally, if it had not been for the oppression, however different, of our nations, our shared responsibility to promote justice as the most basic foundation for promotion of peace and human equality, I would not have found the motive to write this letter.

Honorable Chancellor

Rulers come and go, but people with culture and history and their attachments and desires will keep on staying. Opportunities in front of those in position of high power are transient, even if they may be vast and broad. These opportunities are very auspicious and can play a key role in the negative and positive transformations and developments of a nation.

Those in position of high power do not normally have many opportunities, but are accountable before the Almighty and people due to their high responsibility. We know this, and you know it as well.

Some of these developments can have regional, continental and global ramifications and can hardly be overlooked.

For sometime I have been thinking why some nations that their history shows they have indeed had an important and prominent share and role in material and spiritual progress of mankind in various arenas of science, arts, philosophy, literature and politics and were makers of civilization are not allowed to be proud as a nation of their historical accomplishments and play their deserved and constructive role on the global arena. They try to keep the black cloud of humiliation and shame hanging over their heads. And even more regrettably, some of the leaders of such a nation regard this situation befitting them and their nation and try to justify it. This is really an astonishing phenomenon in today’s world. The propaganda machinery after World War II has been so colossal that has caused some people to believe that they are the guilty party by historical accounts and must pay the penalty fort the wrongs committed by their forefathers for successive generations and for indefinite period of time.

Excellency

World War II came to an end with all its material and moral losses and its 60 million casualties. The death of human beings is tragic and sad. In all divine religions and before all awakened conscience and pure nature of mankind and the sense of right and wrong, the life, property and honor of people, regardless of their religious persuasion and ethnic background, must be respected at all times and all places.

Sixty years have passed since the end of the war. But, regrettably the entire world and some nations in particular are still facing its consequences. Even now the conduct of some bullying powers and power-seeking and aggressive groups is the conduct of victors with the vanquished.

The extortion and blackmail continue, and people are not allowed to think about or even question the source of this extortion, otherwise they face imprisonment. When will this situation end? Sixty years, one hundred years or one thousand years, when? I am sorry to remind you that today the perpetual claimants against the great people of Germany are the bullying powers and the Zionists that founded the Al-Qods Occupying Regime with the force of bayonets in the Middle East.

The Honorable Chancellor

I have no intention of arguing about the Holocaust. But, does it not stand to reason that some victorious countries of World War II intended to create an alibi on the basis of which they could continue keeping the defeated nations of World War II indebted to them. Their purpose has been to weaken their morale and their inspiration in order to obstruct their progress and power. In addition to the people of Germany, the peoples of the Middle East have also borne the brunt of the Holocaust. By raising the necessity of settling the survivors of the Holocaust in the land of Palestine, they have created a permanent threat in the Middle East in order to rob the people of the region of the opportunities to achieve progress. The collective conscience of the world is indignant over the daily atrocities by the Zionist occupiers, destruction of homes and farms, killing of children, assassinations and bombardments.

Excellency, you have seen that the Zionist government does not even tolerate a government elected by the Palestinian people, and over and over again has demonstrated that it recognizes no limit in attacking the neighboring countries.

The question is why did the victors of the war, especially England that had apparently such a strong sense of responsibility toward the survivors of the Holocaust not allow them to settle in their territory. Why did they force them to migrate to other people’s land by launching a wave of anti-Semitism? Using the excuse for the settlement of the survivors of the Holocaust, they encouraged the Jews worldwide to migrate and today a large part of the inhabitants of the occupied territories are non-European Jews. If tyranny and killing is condemned in one part of the world, can we acquiesce and go along with tyranny, killing, occupation and assassinations in another part of the world simply in order to redress the past wrongs?

Excellency

We need to ask ourselves that for what purposes the millions of dollars that the Zionists receive from the treasury of some Western countries are spent for. Are they used for the promotion of peace and the well-being of the people? Or are they used for waging war against Palestinians and the neighboring countries. Are the nuclear arsenals of Israel intended to be used in defense of the survivors of the Holocaust or as a permanent thereat against nations of the region and as an instrument of coercion, and possibly to defend the interests of certain circles of power in the Western countries.

Regrettably, the influence of the Zionists in the economy, media and some centers of political power has endangered interests of the European nations and has robbed them of many opportunities. The main alibi for this approach is the extortion they exact from the Holocaust.

One can imagine what standing some European countries could have had and what global role they could have played, if it had not been for this sixty-year old imposition.

I believe we both share the view that the flourishing of nations and their role are directly related to freedom and sense of pride.

Fortunately, with all the pressures and limitations, the great nation of Germany has been able to take great strides toward advancement and has become a major economic powerhouse in Europe that also seeks to play a more effective role in international interactions. But just imagine where Germany would be today in terms of its eminence among the freedom-loving nations, Muslims of the world and peoples of Europe, if such a situation did not exist and the governments in power in Germany had said no to the extortions by the Zionists and had not supported the greatest enemy of mankind.

It is sad to admit that Europe has lost a lot of its clout in global interactions and has not been able to face and overcome major challenges by relying on itself. This is, of course, understandable. The big powers outside of the continent intend to prove that Europe cannot rely on itself and do anything without their help and intervention.

Our people have also suffered from the interventions by some of the victors of the war after World War II. For many years they interfered in our internal affairs and did not want to see our nation conquer the pinnacles of progress and perfection. They had their eyes on our natural wealth, above all on our energy resources. To secure their own interests, they overthrew the legally constituted government of the time, installed a dictatorial regime and supported it to the end. Later, they supported Saddam in the war imposed on our people and observed no humanitarian boundary in their support for the Iraqi dictator. Our nation has experienced the pain and anguish from the interferences of those who are now crying out for human rights. There are still many suffering from the wounds and injuries of this war.

Many of these aggressions have taken place by those who regard themselves the victors of the World War II. They allow themselves to do whatever they wish, and unfortunately, after the end of the Cold War, the arrogance and expansionist ambitions of these powers have escalated.

We believe that still a major part of the peoples of the world and even international organizations are under the influence of the behavior and the conduct of the victors of the World War II.

I explained the position of the people and government of the Islamic Republic of Iran at the United Nations General Assembly. Is the present state of affairs such as the rules governing the work of the Security Council, especially the right to veto, fair?

Do you not think that the time has come to change these rules in cooperation with independent governments? These rules are by no means acceptable to the collective conscience of nations and are contrary to the sense of reason and human nature. At least, if we want to be fairer, some other countries of the world should be allowed to benefit from the right to veto.

Madam Chancellor

You are familiar with the pains and sufferings currently afflicting our world. Today, the pain and suffering of the people of Iraq that come from occupation, absence of security and daily acts of terrorism are tormenting the entire humanity. Relentless interferences of some bullying powers in the internal affairs of other nations, antagonism toward the inalienable rights of nations to have access to more advanced technologies, subjecting nations to permanent threats by relying on arsenals of chemical and nuclear weapons and weapons of mass destruction, opposition to popular governments in Latin America, supporting coup d’état and dictatorial regimes, absence of due attention to Africa and taking advantage of the power vacuum there to plunder their wealth are among the problems facing our world today. In my letter to President Bush, I spelled out a long list of contemporary global problems.

Where are the roots of these problems? How long can they continue? Do you not think that the main root lies in the fact that some of the rulers and powers of today have distanced themselves from the teachings of the divine prophets, the teachings of Abraham, Moses and Jesus Christ (peace be upon him) and the Prophet Mohammad (peace be upon him).

These teachings are in all divine religions that you and I believe:

· God is the creator of all things and beings. We have all been created free and He has not allowed us to be the servant of anyone other than Him.

· He has commanded us to worship Him and to avoid all oppressors and tyrants.

· He has commanded us to be virtuous, to be good to and serve the people, and has directed us to be kind to and defend the oppressed and fight the oppressors.

· God has given humans dignity and scorns their humiliation.

· He has sent his messengers with clear reasons, the Book and a balance and has called on his servants to promote justice.

Based on these shared principles and foundations of our faith, we believe:

· Peace and tranquility can only be established and endure on the basis of faith in God and justice.

· Peace and dignity are the rights of all nations.

· Pursuit of progress and better livelihood combined with spirituality, compassion and well-being is the right of people.

· You and we can found a new movement to achieve these noble human ideals by relying on these principles and the articles of faith that are common to all divine religions.

Our nations believe and are committed to these pillars of faith. The history has shown that the people of Iran are not familiar with aggressing and brutalizing other nations. Nevertheless, we do not allow being the subject and victim of aggression and brutality. The experience of the eight-year war clearly demonstrated this fact to the whole world.

I believe we and you have both been the subject of tyranny. They do not respect your rights and want us also to forego our rights. Fortunately, I have heard that you also speak your mind openly and are against engendering tension and wars.

Honorable Chancellor,

The inner instincts and nature of the peoples of the world have wakened up.

Tendency toward faith in the oneness of God is on the rise.

People will no longer tolerate to be tyrannized, humiliated and their rights violated.

The prevailing circumstances today differ from those of yesterday. Multiple standards and approaches in relations will not endure.

Iran and Germany can play a more important role together in the international arena by relying on the noble and high values.

This cooperative relationship can also enhance the role of Europe on the global scene and serve as a model of cooperation between two governments and nations.

Without doubt, cooperation of two peace-loving, powerful and cultured nations of Germany and Iran will serve the interests of Europe as well. Together we must end the present abnormalities in international relations, the type of order and relations that are based on the impositions of the victors of the World War II on the defeated nations. Nations and many governments will be on our side on this path.

We must make the shadow of World War II disappear and help the international community to promote security, freedom and sense of tranquility.

The people of Iran and Germany are two great nations that have contributed to the making of our civilization. They have rich culture and have been in the forefront of science, literature, arts and philosophy. Both of our people have a strong faith in God and follow the teachings of divine prophets. They have also had long-lasting scientific, cultural and commercial relations and share many valuable mutual interests.

I have no doubt that with the cooperation of the two governments and the support of the two great nations we can take great strides forward in alleviating the problems and abnormalities of our world today.

Daring and courageous decisions are the key to our success in overcoming the existing problems, countering the violations of rights and defending the rights of nations.

To the extent that I know of the people of Germany, they will come along and join us and want restore their dignity and influence for the sake of global peace and calm. Our people have the similar spirit.

Together we will be able to prove to some powers that respecting other nations and their rights is good for them as well. Our two nations and governments, next to each other, will be able to play a fundamental role in promoting peace, security, progress, and human dignity at the scale of two countries and internationally.

In closing, I pray to the Almighty for the success of Your Excellency and the government and people of Germany.

Here’s the book you all should read if you want to understand the global economy.

Friedman is certainly no conservative; he takes frequent jabs at President Bush. But he understands how the world works and the forces shaping the global economy.

So you can stick your head up your ass and read Dorgan’s book, or you can grow up and learn something.

The inability to have feelings is not something of which you should be proud. Indeed, the mental health types characterize people who don’t have feelings as sociopaths. (I’m not using the DSM-IV term.) Actually, many people of your political persuasion are that way because they are unable to feel empathy for others; they are sociopaths. Congratulations. You lack a fundamental human attribute.

CHATTANOOGA — A federal grand jury charged Tennessee state Sen. Jerry Cooper with bank fraud, mail fraud and conspiracy today in an indictment that says Cooper was “deep in debt and trying to avoid bankruptcy.” Neither Cooper, D-Morrison, nor his attorney, Jerry Summers of Chattanooga, responded to telephone messages seeking comment. Cooper had been identified as an unindicted co-conspirator in a lending scheme involving the 1999 sale of his lumber mill in Warren County.

Tucson Police say a dangerous man is off the streets and locked up in County Jail.
Fernando Egurrola-Gutierrez, a 26-year-old resident of Mexico, was arrested Saturday night after Police responded to reports of a home invasion.

Police arrived on the scene about two minutes after getting the call.

When they got there they say Gutierrez was on top of the female victim.

Sergeant Decio Hopffer told News 4, “We had to go hands-on with him. He did not immediately comply with our demands so we had to go hands-on to detain him.”

After booking Gutierrez, Police say they found solid evidence linking him to another attempted sexual assault in the same area.

On July 16, a man fitting the same description as Gutierrez pulled a gun on two hair stylists at the Supercuts salon about two blocks away.

In that case, the attacker locked one of the women in a bathroom and attempted to assault her sexually.

The second stylist got away and when she left the building the opening door sounded a bell which spooked the attacker who took off running.

Police believe that man was Gutierrez and they say he was getting more brazen.

“He forced himself inside a bedroom before attempting sexual assault so he was getting more violent, more aggressive. There is no doubt in my mind that he would strike again,” said Sgt. Hopffer.

Gutierrez was booked into the Pima County Jail on several charges including attempted sexual assault, kidnapping, armed robbery, aggravated assault and burglary.

A Little Late-Afternoon Banning
– Ace
Larry the Urbanite is gone, not for some rinky-dink reason, but for such an utterly anti-American, pro-terrorist douchemove that I just refuse to tolerate him any longer on the site.

Someone did some googling and came up with a lot of bullshit by him, none of which especially bothered me, except for one little thing he did that was positively anti-American– just to somehow “annoy” me, a frickin’ midlevel blogger no one’s ever heard of.

I’d say who that someone was, but I don’t know if he’s proud of his work or would rather it be kept on the downlow.

In any event, goodbye, Larry. As you seem to frequently call for the banning of rightwing “trolls” on leftwing sites, I’m sure you can have no complaint about this.

(And no–that’s not the reason I’m banning him. I could give a fig about silly hypocrisy like that from a leftie. It’s their stock in trade.)

Comments: A Little Late-Afternoon Banning:

I will miss him. He was like the energizer bunny of contrarianism. No matter how many beatdowns he endured he came back for more. Ego Invictus.

I’ve always wondered what these douchebag trolls did before the Internet Tubes gave them a way to vent their madness upon the unwary. I suppose lots of them were street-preachers, steetsign taggers, or those “letter to the editor” recluses who blamed the moral turpitude of America’s youth on fluoridation of the water.

Still, I’ve never found web forums to be one-tenth as wacky and filled with bile as some USENET groups got. Some people there were Frisch-crazy. There was even a newsgroup dedicated to making fun of these people: alt.usenet.kooks. Part of the reason USENET faded back into obscurity was the fact that it was pretty hard to ban such people without some pretty draconian (and time-consuming) moderation.

Good times, good times.

Now, in the Urbanite timeline, its just stale pants-wetting jokes.

Also, then: the Paul Anka Integrity Kick
Now: Laughing at some Mary Paisley Pretzlefuck chick cause she’s retarded.

Then: Donald Trump reviewing candidacies on the Apprentice.

I kinda hope we get a new troll. Larry wasn’t the kinda troll that you laughed at, like as someone else suggested Proud Liberal Vet. When I see Larry posted, I skip over it to see the response. PLV was the type of guy that you read and laughed at the pure ignorance and sstupidity of the post itself, then see everyone tear him apart and laugh even harder. Its better that way.

Maybe Larry will send some new trolls to avenge his banning, most leave, and a few choice idiots will stay.

Monty,

I must disagree. Usenet perfected kook disposal in the most eminently democratic way possible: the plonk file.

Although there’s something to be said for setting the followup-to: header to something randomly inappropriate as an alternative. Dropping a troll’s witty riposte into alt.personals.motss is always good for a cheap laugh.

Youve obviously never spent Thanksgiving with my family.

Anyways, I Googled Larry when he first popped up months ago and found another blog that he posted at.

I didnt read any of the blog posts therr – I just jumped into the comments to see what Larry was up to. I figured it was another conservative blog that Larry was trolling at, but I was wrong. It took me a while to figure it out because their was this guy calling himself Bugs Bunny or Bunny Boy or something who I thought was doing some incredibly funny Liberal Talking Points riff.

Then I realized it was a liberal blog and this Bunny dude was being serious. Apparently he’s a regular commenter there. Entire comment threads are nothing but his crazed rantings.

I swear to god, If Spurwing ever fucked Proud Liberal Vet their baby/hatchling would be this guy.

You should send this guy an open invitation Ace.

A troll is a troll is a troll, folks. OBVIOUSLY his “reasonable” exterior was a facade; frequenting a site where you’re universally ridiculed is not indicative of a hinged person. They always always say they’re there to hear the other side’s POV (Uh, you don’t have to POST for that), but they’re actually only there to get wood from stirring $hit and getting smacked down. They…are…all…the….same. No exceptions ever.

In your phone conversations, say: “Have you read Omar SHariff’s book on bridge? Your game will explode.”

See it has an arab sounding name, “bridge” and “explode” in it, but is really innocuous. That will give the NSA fits.

1. rhp6033 spews:

PBJ at 10: The federal tax exemption was a political move, and you know it. It was a hand granade lobbed directly at Cantwell, in hopes of aiding those making ignorant comments like the one you just made.

All the Republican majority in the Senate had to do was to vote for: (a) a minimum wage bill, (b) an estate tax repeal bill, (c) a bill to extend the sales-tax deduction on federal income taxes, and (d) a bill to reduce the minimum wage for persons receiving tips. They didn’t put them on the floor as seperate bills, because they didn’t want them to pass. They just wanted to cover their buts by allowing endangered Republican encumbents to claim that they voted for the minimum wage bill, and they wanted to give political ammunition against the Democrats (like Cantwell) on the other items.

Now, the Republicans have a majority in both houses of Congress. So any vote by Cantwell, or any other Democrat, was not dispositive of the combined bill. If the Republicans wanted the bill to pass, they only had to have their Whip force their members to vote it along party lines. They’ve done it often enough before, they could have done it here if they had wanted to.

Congress will be back in session briefly in September. If the Republicans really want Washington and Tennessee and a few other states to have the deduction, they will pass it then. I think there is a chance this will happen, because Frist, the Republican Majority Leader, is from Tennessee (but he’s not retiring this year).

But don’t keep spreading the lie that Cantwell voted against Washington taxpayers. Everyone knows it is a misleading statement, and it just makes you look dumb.

After five decades of watching their white neighbors leave the city of Detroit by the thousands, Detroit’s African-Americans have begun to follow. Detroit’s black population fell 10 percent from 2000 to 2005, according to population estimates released today by the U.S. Census Bureau. The decline reverses Detroit’s 50-year trend of attracting African-Americans even as the city’s overall population fell.

Immediately after the London plot was disrupted, a “senior administration official,” insisting on anonymity for his or her splenetic words, denied the obvious, that Kerry had a point…

This farrago of caricature and non sequitur makes the administration seem eager to repel all but the delusional.

“I’ve never heard it explained adequately how you solve a problem where two different people think God gave them the same piece of land. I mean, what actually, we’ve seen how you’ve made progress. And what happens is, at some point, and I don’t just mean in the Middle East, at some point, to be blunt about it, somebody gives up something. You don’t conquer them, you know, like Gormany and Japan after World War II.

DeKlerk gave up, in the best possible sense, South Afirca – he said, ‘we can’t keep this going any more.’ The colonial forces, the British and French and others said we can’t run this part of the world anymore.

Essentially Mikhail Gorbachev gave up that malicious dream of a totalitarian state could change the world.

And in the American south, the white southerners, the segregationists, they were made to give up, said you know what, we can’t do this anymore. So the question I get is, who gives up what?”
______________________________________________________________

UPDATE: A Mideast expert writes me with this thought:

I don’t get his point. It can’t be that 6 million Israeli Jews (or 13 million Jews total), “give up” more of eretz Yisrael. The Arabs already have Judea and Samaria (West Bank), the Jewish religious and historical heartland, and most Jews seem willing to tolerate that, more or less. Not to mention, the Arabs already have 82.5 percent of British Mandatory Palestine (Jordan, West Bank, and Gaza Strip) and most Jews seem willing to live with that, more or less.

For Israelis/Jews, this isn’t about “giving up something,” it’s about not giving up. The South African example is misleading, as usual. Even at the height of the anti-apartheid struggle, most blacks did not see most whites, as I understand it, as not South African. So is the reference to Germany and France. AFTER both were heavily damaged in World Wars, and Germany leveled in the second, Germany learned to live without all of Alsace-Lorraine, etc.

So, what’s Greenfield’s point? That the Arab-Muslims have to give something up? Yes, right after their version of the Protestant Reformation/Catholic Counter-reformation, or maybe Allied occupation.

Many Israelis Furious at How War Was Run
Aug 16 9:24 AM US/Eastern
By AMY TEIBEL
Associated Press Writer
JERUSALEM

As the Mideast cease-fire took hold, there was no truce in Israeli politics: Demands mounted for the military chief’s resignation, and the government came under increasing criticism over how the war against Hezbollah was waged.
Newspapers and radio shows were filled with outrage over army chief Lt. Gen. Dan Halutz’s decision to sell off his stock portfolio just hours before launching Israel’s biggest military operation since its 1982 invasion of Lebanon.

Halutz declared himself a victim of malicious reporting, saying he has been turned “into a Shylock.”
Calls mounted Wednesday for setting up a commission of inquiry into how the war was run, amid growing dissatisfaction with Israel’s leaders and Monday’s cease-fire.

The 34-day war against Lebanese Hezbollah guerrillas, widely seen here as just, had united Israel’s fractured society. Hezbollah was considered a growing threat after it had vastly expanded its arsenal of missiles in recent years.
But the unity crumbled after Israel’s fabled army pulled out of south Lebanon without crushing Hezbollah or rescuing two soldiers whose July 12 capture by the guerillas during a raid in Israel triggered the fighting.

The war began just two months after Prime Minister Ehud Olmert and Defense Minister Amir Peretz, men with little military experience, took office. Surveys in two major Hebrew-language dailies on Wednesday showed low approval ratings for both.
A poll of 500 people by TNS-Teleseker showed support for Olmert sinking to 40 percent after soaring to 78 percent in the first two weeks of the offensive.

Peretz’ approval rating plunged to 28 percent from 61 percent, according to the poll, which has a margin of error of 4.4 percentage points. A second poll, by the Dahaf Research Institute, showed 57 percent calling for his resignation.
The Dahaf poll, which had a margin of error of 4.5 percentage points, showed 70 percent opposed to a cease-fire that did not include the return of the captured soldiers, and 69 percent backing an official inquiry into the war’s prosecution.

“Iran seeks to test taboos with Holocaust cartoons

The contest, held jointly with Iran’s Cartoon House, a syndicate for caricaturists, will be open until September 14. Until now, Shojai said 1,193 drawings had been received from 61 countries but he said judges chose 204 to put on display.
Several cartoons showed images of the Nazi dictator Adolf Hitler, one showing him smiling as he stood behind

President Bush while bombs carrying the Star of David fell. Another showed a turtle with a U.S. emblem laying eggs carrying the Star of David.

The contest was welcomed by some visiting youths who were at the exhibition on Wednesday, two days after it opened.
“After the Holocaust was questioned by the president, now I have real doubts about it,” said Maryam Zadkani, a 23-year-old graphic artist as she wandered around the exhibition.
“I came here to see what other cartoonists around the world think about the Holocaust.”

The winner and runners up will be announced on September 2, with the top three entries receiving $12,000, $8,000 and $5,000 respectively. “The government is not financing the prize,” Shojai said, without saying who was offering the cash.”

Well, at least the feds aren’t tearing apart the Somali grocery stores anymore, based on paranoid Sharkansky-style post 9-11 Fear Factor politics….we all know how successful that Big Brother operation was…

14 arrests upset local Somalis

The bust, which netted 44 alleged khat sellers nationwide, came after an 18-month DEA investigation that targeted mostly immigrant communities in Seattle, along with other cities with sizable Somali populations, including Minneapolis; New York; Columbus, Ohio; and Boston.

The sting involved months of extensive interviews with members of the Somali community and their neighbors as well as phone taps, according to the DEA. Over the course of the investigation, DEA agents said, 25 tons of khat — worth about $10 million — was illegally imported for use by Somali immigrants.

The DEA said an international network used human smugglers and commercial shippers to transport khat from its native habitat in Africa to the U.S. Now, the 14 arrested in the Seattle bust are waiting for trials that could last years. If convicted under the felony drug-trafficking charges brought against them, they could face decades in federal prison.
-
Parts of the khat or qat (pronounced “cot”) shrub have been used for centuries as a mild stimulant in countries like Somalia and Yemen, where users compare the effect of chewing on the fresh plant to drinking a strong cup of caffeinated coffee.

For the mostly Muslim populations of those nations, alcohol use is a religious taboo. Instead of drinking, many will chew on khat, kick back with friends and family, and talk.

But here in the U.S., khat’s two active chemicals, cathine and cathonine, are scheduled, controlled substances, making them illegal to possess and consume — and the DEA doesn’t make cultural exceptions in enforcing federal drug laws.

Consider, as just one example Israel’s repeated, low-level overflights of southern Lebanon at supersonic speeds with F-16 fighters in violation of international law regarding sovreign air space.

Bush probably stopped looking for bin Laden because his whole family is very friendly with the bin Laden family.

One particular bar in town was known for over-serving patrons. The local police decided to crack down on drunk driving, and staked out the bar, intending to arrest drunks as soon as they took “control” of their vehicle.

Out of the bar stumbled one man. He barely made it into the parking lot, weaving the whole way. After going from car to car, he finally found what he believed to be his car. He tried to insert the key, but kept fumbling with it and dropped the keys on the ground. The officer watched him for twenty minutes as he tried to get his keys in the door. The entire parking lot emptied of bar patrons, but the officer ignored them, and kept his eyes glued to this one guy, determined that he was not going to let him “drink and drive”.

Finally the guy gets his keys in the door, opens the door, sits inside, and puts his keys in the ignition. Finally!!!!

The officer turns on his lights, pulls behind the car to block it from exiting the parking stall, and loudly orders the man out of the car. He conducts a field subriety test, but is surprised to find that the man actually does rather well. He can recite the alphabet, forwards and backwards, and he manages to walk heel to toe without a stumble. The officer then takes out his portable breath test kit, and instructs the man to breath into the tube. It shows a “zero” alchohol reading!

The officer is perpelexed. “Have you been drinking!!!???” He inquires. Instead of the usual “two beers” response, the guy just says “No.” The officer smells his breath, and realizes for the first time that he doesn’t smell any alchohol.

“Okay, what gives here?” the officer inquires. “A moment ago, you couldn’t stand up, but now you are as sober as a judge, and you say you haven’t been drinking at all. Just what’s going on here?”

“I’m the decoy.” the man replies.

So Rodent, why do you think the term “Jesusland” is clever? Tell us why your Bush-hating and Christian-hating doesn’t go together. While you’re at it, see if you can tell the difference between the rhetoric of an ordinary Bush-hating lib and an Islamofascist:

1. “George Bush’s personal commitment to and sympathy for Christian fundamentalism are well-known. Indeed, it is becoming increasingly clear that his foreign policies, as in Afghanistan, Iraq and now Iran, are powerfully shaped by the Christian fundamentalist agenda of global conquest for Christ and Capital. Christian fundamentalists believe that Christ alone is the way to salvation, and that the entire world must be brought to heel before him, by force if necessary. In the past, this pernicious doctrine was used to bless bloody Crusades and wars of imperial plunder. The doctrine serves exactly the same purpose today, although in a somewhat modified garb, as the bombing of Afghanistan, the destruction of Iraq and the possible American invasion of Iran clearly indicate. Although these acts are sought to be justified by America as a ‘civilising’ mission or as part of its ‘war on terror’, the underlying white Christian supremacist vision behind American imperialism, a continuation of the logic of European colonialism, is unmistakable.”

2.”By appointing John Ashcroft, and allowing him to appoint a proven sadist to oversee the Iraqi prison system, George Bush demonstrates his ‘Christian values.’ The media parrots his tepid outrage. Bush and the media both ignored the findings of the IRC (Red Cross) and Amnesty International that abuse of prisoners in Iraq was a widespread and serious problem.”

Staff Report

Monday, August 14, 2006

Illinois Senator Barack Obama warns citizens at his 50th Town Hall meeting about gas guzzling. It was among many points made to the standing room only audience at the Metropolis Community Center. Obama spoke on everything from DC politics to global warming. He says part of the blame for the world’s higher temperatures rests on gas guzzling vehicles. Obama says consumers can make the difference by switching to higher mileage hybrids. Today the Senator said, “It would save more energy, do more for the environment and create better world security than all the drilling we could do in Alaska.”

Syria President Assad Threatens War
Syrian President Bashar Al-Assad says his country is prepared for war with Israel and warned that the Golan Heights would be seized “by Syrian hands.”
In an interview with the Egyptian publication Al-Usbu after the ceasefire in Lebanon went into effect, Assad declared: “Syria has been prepared and ready since the first day of the war . . .
“We and the resistance (Hezbollah) read clearly that the day of confrontation was definitely approaching. The current war is five years old, and there were widespread preparations for this day.”
Assad said he is convinced that steps toward peace “have fallen off, and that the Golan will be liberated by Syrian hands.”

Asked what the expected results would be if Israel launched an attack against Syria, Assad said: “If Israel acts with adventurism and enters into a war with Syria, this will be the beginning of a heavy price that it will pay.”
Assad said Hezbollah’s conflict with Israel marks “a new stage in the history of [the Arab] nation, and he remarked ominously: “To this day no one in American intelligence or Israeli intelligence knows what the true capabilities of the resistance are.”
The Syrian government daily Al-Thawra claimed Hezbollah had achieved a military victory over Israel, which “forced the Americans to make huge diplomatic efforts aimed at preventing [the victory] from being translated into a new political reality.”
On Tuesday, Germany’s foreign minister abruptly canceled a planned visit to Syria after Assad gave a speech ridiculing Israel’s military offensive in Lebanon and warning against disarming Hezbollah.

The Hillary Haters
The Boston Globe’s Brett Arends reports that New Hampshire voters have some nasty things to say about Hillary Clinton, New York’s junior senator:

Dick Bennett has been polling New Hampshire voters for 30 years. And he’s never seen anything like it.

“Lying b**** . . . shrew . . . Machiavellian . . . evil, power-mad witch . . . the ultimate self-serving politician.”

No prizes for guessing which presidential front-runner drew these remarks in focus groups. . . .

We’re not talking about “soft” negatives like, say, “out of touch” or “arrogant.”

We’re talking: “Criminal . . . megalomaniac . . . fraud . . . dangerous . . . devil incarnate . . . satanic . . . power freak.”

Satanic.

And: “Political wh***.”

(Note: I don’t usually like reporting such personal remarks, but in this case you can hardly understand the situation without them. I have no strong personal feelings about the senator.)

We assume the asterisked words rhyme with “rich” and “poor,” respectively. Anyway, what’s astonishing about these descriptions of Mrs. Clinton is that all of them come from Democrats. According to Bennett, 45% of Granite State Dems have a bad impression of her, and for many of them it is very bad indeed.

Must be a vast left-wing conspiracy.

14 “..how Bush’s tax cuts increased government revenue..”

Nice trick, yet displays the lefty ignorance that seems to be replacing cow poop as the major source of methane gas. Start with the two years ending FY2001,(just after GW took office), and then end at the end of FY2003, just as the majority of the cuts were inacted. Better review even your biased source to see the projected increases beyond the FY2004 data, until 2010. As most of the tax cuts sunset after 2010 the receipts will go back down after that.

The Seattle chapter of Drinking Liberally meets tonight.

What do we really do each week at Drinking Liberally? Well, this week I suppose I’ll propose a toast to good health for Fidel Castro (better intestinal fortitude?)…while…um…burning an American flag…and…and…we’ll sing the national anthem—in Spanish—while smoking Cuban cigars. Yeah…that’s the kind of fun we have each week.

Won’t you join us?

We meet at the Montlake Ale House (2307 24th Avenue E). The fun begins at 8:00 p.m.

Drinking Liberally is hosted by Seattle bloggers Nick Beaudrot of Electoral Math and Thehim of Blog Reload. If you find yourself in the Tri-Cities area this evening, check out Drinking Liberally at the Atomic Ale in Richland. Jimmy has the details.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hillary_Rodham_Clinton_controversies

Anti-Semitic slurs

Several people have accused Clinton of making anti-Semitic comments or slurs. In 2000, lawyer Paul Fray, who ran Bill Clinton’s failed 1974 run for Congress, claimed that after that defeat, Hillary Rodham, then Clinton’s girlfriend, raged that he (Fray) was a “Fucking Jew Bastard.” Fray’s wife and businessman Neil McDonald both claim to have witnessed this slur. [2] Hillary Clinton denied that she ever made such a remark and released a 1997 letter in which Fray apologized regarding statements he had made about her over the years. [3] In addition Fray had previously been disbarred for altering court documents and also suffered from a medical condition that caused erratic behavior and memory loss. [4] Moreover, Fray was only one-eighth Jewish, not one-half as a book detailing the accusation had claimed. [5]

Larry Patterson, a former Arkansas state trooper and bodyguard to Bill and Hillary Clinton who related a series of lurid accusations about the couple, then said he heard the couple use anti-Semitic slurs “10 to 20” times. He asserts that he has heard Hillary use the term “Jew Bastard” and called President Clinton a “Jew Boy” and a “Mother Fucking Jew.” [6]

In a discussion of the Fray allegation, Dick Morris, a former political advisor to President Clinton, asserted that a couple of years previously, Hillary Clinton had used a Jewish stereotype during an argument about consulting fees, stating “Money – that’s all you people care about is money.” [7]

I’m definitely not a Hilary fan, and she has a number of flaws, that I think make her less than Presidential, but I’m skeptical she’s an anti-Semite.

Sad news today. CPL Philip E. Baucus, age 28, died while serving his country in Anwar province in Iraq Saturday. CPL Baucus was the nephew of Montana Sen. Max Baucus, a Democrat. Sen.

http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/14140498/

Meanwhile, Karl Rove, Dick Cheney, and Daniel Rumsfield never served, despite being of age during the Vietnam War. Neither of the Bush twins have volunteered to serve, nor (to my knowledge) have any of the offspring of Rove, Cheney, or Rumsfield.

Yet Republicans call Murtha, a combat veteran, a “coward” in the halls of Congress, because he questioned the wisdom of the administration’s military policy in Iraq. They also accuse Democrats, in general, of wanting to “duck and run” from Iraq. They threw mud at a combat veteran who ran against Bush in the last election, while daring the news media to report on Bush’s failure to complete his service in the Texas Air National Guard.

AmericaFirst at 30 said: “At least Rove, Cheney and Rumsfeld support our troops”

GIVE ME A BREAK!

Rumsfield thinks he’s a modern-day Metternicht, but its pretty clear that much of the modern mess in the Gulf region is due to his incompetence, dating back to his days in the Ford and Reagan administrations. He’s quick to send in troops to try to fix problems he created by trying to play both sides of the fence for too long (i.e., arming both Iran and Iraq at the same time). He sent troops into Iraq without preparing the proper groundwork (i.e., assuming Turkey would allow us to launch and offensive from their territory, without bothering to confirm this with them in advance), and ignored and side-lined generals who warned him he didn’t have enough boots on the ground to properly occupy the country. Then when the Iraqi government army collapsed and its armories were open for weeks to any looter who could cart off as much as he could carry, Rumsfield claimed “no one could know” this would happen. Yea, like Bush claiming that “no one could know” of the devestation that would be caused by Katrina, despite warnings for years previously.

For decades the Army has been warning that our troops should avoid at all costs getting involved in urban warfare, especially in a city the size of Iraq. That is one of the reasons Bush I refused to carry the first Gulf War into Iraq. But Rumsfield chose to assume the best-case scenario, that we would be greeted with flowers and the overwhelming love of the Iraqi people, rather than take a more realistic approach that even a cursory history of Iraq (especially during years of British control) would have revealed.

He sent Humvees, which are really nothing more than big jeeps, into an urban warfare environment for which they were proven to be poorly suited in Somalia, some ten years previously. Soldiers had to use “hillbilly armour” to try to make up for the lack of armored vehicles, while Rumsfield denied that there was a problem, until he was forced to finally work on armoring the Humvees when confronted by a question at a press conference by a National Guard soldier from Tennessee.

A competent Secretary of Defense would have told the President that they didn’t have the troops available to fight in Afganistan and Iraq at the same time without a major increase in troop strength, which would include re-instituting the draft. He didn’t want to do this for political purposes, so he chose to believe the “rosy scenario” instead.

Rumsfield, who avoided service in Vietnam to go right into a government job at the White House during the Nixon, Ford, Reagan, Bush I and Bush II administrations, is an example of incompetence being rewarded by promotion in the Republican administrations.

This is not the kind of support our servicemen and women need. Showing up at a mess hall in Iraq to eat a meal with the troops while the camera is rolling is a poor substitute for competence and caring. The reality is that he cares more for his own career and priviledges of position than he does for the troops under his care.

And please note: “Supporting our Troops” is not the same thing as “Supporting Administration Policies”. I thought we had gotten rid of that a long time ago, when post-Vietnam we realized that blaming the troops for the Administration’s policies was a mistake. We started off okay in this war – supporting our troops regardless of how we felt about the wisdom of the war – but now the Bush administration, for partison political purposes, has again tried to equate “supporting our troops” onto “supporting the Bush administration”, by labeling anyone who disagrees with him as “not supporting our troops”. Its very bad public policy, because in the end its the troops that suffer. I finally had to remove the yellow ribbon off my car, because it has become equated with supporting Bush, rather than the troops. I’m looking for a bumber sticker which adequately makes the distinction.

I’m particularly looking forward to getting back on the podcast after the fogies boomers took it over last week. Betcha we speculate about tomorrow’s Supreme Court ruling on WA’s Defense of Marriage Act.

Oh… and if you happen to be a liberal drinker on the other side of the mountains I received an email from Jim this morning. Apparently it’s “freaking hot” out there so the Tri-Cities chapter of DL is meeting an hour later tonight, at 8 PM, Atomic Ale, 1015 Lee Blvd., in Richland.

Well, well spit in the ocean what a name, what are you hiding from the World with a name like that? Your father name you Sue and you got your butt kick every day. That may be the reason you think like a wimp. The Last two wars that were World Wars the folks dying were in the millions and covered more than one continent. Today this War covers many continents, just as many countries are fighting the battle, and the lost souls are less than a million folks. Now the War is being fought in the Middle East and not in Seattle should make you feel safer. Now the Social Security only paid for LBJ War in Viet Nam the other Wars were paid from a different budget. Now last but not lease I really do not care how many fools die supporting this nation enemies, but I do care about those who want to make a better life for their countrymen. Maria is right about something but not all and shouldn’t be abandoned because members of her Socialist Democrat Party lack some common sense.

“you have to clear away the bullshit and make a decision. The decision has to be clear and unambiguous. You go ahead with the project or you don’t. You spend the money or you don’t. You go with plan A or plan B. You hire the person or you don’t. Through all the data collection and analysis there can be some ambiguity and fuzziness, but in the end, all that stuff gets accounted for and a decision is made.”

What a load of crap! Mark the Slide Rule (and bet welsher) wants us to believe everything goes according to plan in the private sector. He’s one of those business-can-do-no-wrong and government-can-do-nothing-wrong ideologues.

He wants us to believe businesses never fuck up. Bullshit!

Exhibit A – New Coke
Exhibit B – The Kingdome (remember Peter Kiewet & Sons, and the sand jacks?)
Exhibit C – Edsel

Now let’s look at how a government employee (called a “cop”) makes decisions.

He has to clear away the bullshit and make a decision about (a) what’s happening and (b) what to do about it. He has to make a clear and unambiguous decision — either arrest the subject (Plan A) or let him go (Plan B). After collecting all the information he can and figuring out what it means, there may be a great deal of ambiguity and fuzziness — not to mention loose ends and unanswered questions — but in the end, he has to make a decision that will stand up in court.

I’m a lifelong democrat. And the “black and white” mindset is all coming from the wacko leftists in my own party.

It’s really sad when the people who are supposedly on my side of the political spectrum lie about history. More than likely, they’re simply ignorant. I’m starting to realize the old definition of liberlism – “open mindednesss” – no longer applies. Everyone sees what they want to see.

Janet, I’ve read some vicious, “black and white” posts from you in the past. But on Israeli history, you seem to have most of your facts right. However, it cannot be denied that back in the 1880′s – 1890′s, and also in the 1920′s, the Zionist settlers were also comitting horendous acts of violence that, today, would be called “terrorist”.

But it looks like hyperbole and distortion have won the day, from both sides.

I really do believe it’s time for a viable third party.

Let’s get this straight: MTR argues that all muslims should be exterminated. He denies that global warming via completely bogus “chi squared” argument. And yet he wraps himself in the flag of “superior intellect” and “character.”

Shoephone, I haven’t seen any evidence of what you say, but have gotten an idea that there are stories out there about Zionist activities. Given where they were living, and who there neighbors were, I suspect that it was pretty evenly happening on both sides. Doesn’t excuse it, but then, I wasn’t there, and I don’t know what I’d do in such an environment.

The one thing that is happening in all this is that the differences between Hamas and Hezbollah are becoming very clear. Hamas is a basket case and more on the side of those throwing rocks at tanks. No one wants the Palestinians, and this event is proving that to be even more evident. Almost makes me feel sorry for them. The Arab world has screwed them over since the founding of Israel, and they haven’t done much for themselves.

On the other hand, Hezbollahs is very obviously an agent of Iran. They are much more sophisticated in tactics. But their cause is a bit fuzzy. They have no territorial claims on Israel. So their task here is provacateur. Israel has no option but to wipe them out.

And once there, how would you get back????? (By the way, the aircraft burned only 400 lbs of fuel an hour at 40,000 feet. Pretty efficient, as those things go. So by replacing older aircraft with newer ones, they are actually reducing emissions, etc., etc.)

26. Roger Rabbit spews:

I want to remind everyone that in a previous thread, MARK THE WELSHER asserted the Bush tax cuts have increased federal revenue.

Disregarding FICA revenues, which weren’t affected by Bush’s tax cuts, federal revenue was:*

2000 – $1,372,376,000,000 (baseline year)
2001 – $1,297,063,000,000
2002 – $1,152,413,000,000
2003 – $1,069,364,000,000
2004 – $1,146,664,000,000
2005 – $1,279,114,000,000 (estimate)

* Combination of individual and corporate income taxes, excise taxes, and other taxes (including inheritance tax)

Source of data: http://www.taxpolicycenter.org/TaxFacts/TFDB/TFTemplate.cfm?Docid=203

As The Economist — a British newsweekly with a conservative slant — reports in its July 15 issue, the current surge in revenues is entirely due to tax collections on soaring corporate profits (which have reached an all-time high as a percentage of GDP) CEO incomes, and reflects a “growing disparity” between the shares of national income going to the capital-owning class and the producers of economic output (i.e., workers).

It’s true, of course, that tax cuts can (in some circumstances) increase government revenue. If the tax rate is 100%, there will be no economic output, and tax collections will be zero.

But it’s also true that tax increases can (in some circumstances) increase government revenue. If the tax rate is 0%, revenue will be zero, and raising the tax rate above zero will increase revenue to a sum greater than zero.

Obviously, there’s a point somewhere between a 0% and a 100% tax rate where revenue is maximized. Equally obviously, if the existing tax rate is below that point, cutting the rate will result in further revenue loss. On the other hand, if the tax rate is above that point, a tax cut will stimulate more economic activity and result in increased government revenue.

Other factors, of course, influence government revenues – the most important of which is the economic cycle. But in general, it appears federal taxation is below the revenue optimization point most of the time, so tax cuts ordinarily result in revenue losses, not the opposite. It certainly is NOT true — as WELSHER asserted — that cutting taxes ALWAYS increases revenues. That certainly wasn’t true in 2001-2003, the first three years of the Bush tax cuts for the rich. And the current increase in federal revenues is temporary, because Congress has yet to deal with the AMT (alternative minimum tax), which is raising millions more middle class families’ taxes every year, because it was never indexed to inflation. If Congress grants AMT relief to middle class taxpayers, revenues will resume their fall.

While much of life is ambiguous and fuzzy, sometimes you just have to clear away the bullshit and make a decision. The decision has to be clear and unambiguous. When you lose a bet, you pay or you don’t. You go with plan A or plan B. Plan A is to preserve your honor and credibility by paying the bet. Plan B is be a fucking welsher. You can collect all the data and conduct all the analysis you want, but in the end, if you lose a bet and don’t pay — you’re a fucking welsher.

It’s hot in Tokyo, and very humid. About 32 celsius (90 fahrenheit), 95+% humidity. They say the rain is ending, right about the time I’m heading for home.

My suite is a cotton-wool blend, like most of the ones we buy in Seattle. But in this weather I am very aware that it has too much wool, and not enough cotton in it. It’s fine for Seattle, but here it’s too hot.

In a concession to global warming, the government has requested all offices (public and private) to raise their thermastats so less fuel is consumed. This means the average office temperture is about 85 degrees F. But they also get to dress “summer casual”, without wearing a coat and tie. If I had known that before I came, I would have left the suit at home entirely.

I’m leaving in a few hours, about 4:00 PM flying to SF, then on a connecting flight to Seattle, arriving about 1:00 PM in Seattle – ON THE SAME DAY. Air travel and international date lines can be really interesting. Then to the office to check on things before going home.

By the way, did you know there are bluegrass music bars in Tokyo????? All local (Japanese) musicians, who study it pretty seriously. Musically they are very good. But its a bit of a challenge for them to sing English lyrics with a southern accent, combined with the country wail that is the Bluegrass style. But one singer even managed a respectible yodel.

The Accidental Revenue

The Economist, a British newsweekly with a conservative slant, says George Bush deserves little or no credit for improving deficit figures.

As has been reported elsewhere (and I’ve previously posted), the falling deficit is due entirely to surging revenue; Bush’s spending continues apace. And the increased revenue is coming from only two places: Corporate income taxes, and higher tax collections from CEOs raking in enormous salaries, bonuses, and stock options.

Bush didn’t cut corporate taxes at all. As The Economist points out, the higher tax collections from corporations are because the share of the national economic pie going to corporate profits is at an all-time high.

There has been no trickle down of this wealth to workers. Zip. Nada. None. Trickle-down is a myth.

The Economist also notes that part of the improvement is due to the fact the Bush administration consistently overestimates deficits so the actual numbers will look better. And a deficit equal to 2.6% of GDP just before the baby boomers begin retiring is not a good thing. Finally, the recent improvement in the deficit won’t last; it will evaporate when Congress fixes the AMT (alternative minimum tax), which is rapidly overtaking what is now considered middle incomes because it was never indexed to inflation.

The article is in the July 15th issue (with Putin’s picture on the cover), which is currently on local newsstands (but is not the current issue on the magazine’s web site). I didn’t link to the article because you have to pay to read it on the internet.

Dufus, you’ve raised an interesting point — why is flag burning protected as “free speech,” while cross burning is not? Here is the answer:

“Virginia Attorney General Jerry Kilgore commented, ‘A burning cross is a symbol like no other. It doesn’t just say, ‘We don’t like you.’ The message is, ‘We are going to do you harm.’”

http://www.law.com/jsp/article.jsp?id=1048518258780

In other words, cross burning conveys a threat, while flag burning conveys only protest, dissent, or disrespect. Cross burning implies violence to come; flag burning does not. The First Amendment has never protected threatening speech.

30. Tree Frog Farmer spews:

Roger, it’s my understanding that in Washington we do not recognize “Fighting Words”. Is that so?

31. Roger Rabbit spews:

It should be pointed out that the 2002 Supreme Court decision that upheld state laws against cross burnings which are intended to intimidate, also said a cross burning at a KKK rally is protected free speech.

32. Roger Rabbit spews:

36

Not so.

The “fighting words” doctrine essentially says that epithets or insults which incite violence are not protected speech. This is an oversimplification; there is a complicated legal test.

The issue typically comes up in the context of prosecutions under assault, harassment statutes, or disorderly conduct laws. This is most likely to occur as a violation of a municipal ordinance.

An illustrative case is Seattle v. Camby, 104 Wn.2d 49, 701 P.2d 499 (1985), which involved a prosecution under Seattle’s harassment ordinance of a restaurant patron who invited a bouncer to “step outside” so he could “kick your ass” and threatened to return later if the bouncer didn’t step outside. Based on the specific facts of the case, the Court of Appeals ruled the defendant’s conduct was unlikely to result in a breach of the peace, and reversed his conviction. However, this decision leaves no doubt that Washington follows the U.S. Supreme Court doctrine that “fighting words” are not protected free speech and can be grounds for a criminal conviction.

President Bush thinks we should stay in Iraq forever, as far as the eye can see. He’s said it himself. He says, ‘Getting out of Iraq is up to presidents who come after me.’ I don’t agree. That’s too long. I don’t know if we’ll be able to get our troops out of Iraq in 6 months or even a year. But I want to start working on getting them home as soon as I get into office. And staying in Iraq for at least three more years, like President Bush wants, is too long.

Congressman Reichert is with President Bush on this. More rubber stamps. More blank checks. I disagree.

We’ve got too many challenges around the world to keep burning through money and our men and women in uniform just because President Bush isn’t man enough to admit that his policies aren’t working.

To borrow from Paul Harvey… and now, the rest of the story:

Here is the full diary,

The bodies of the two captured U.S. soldiers were found in Iraq – bearing signs of “barbaric torture.”

How quaint.

I hope Alberto Gonzales and John Yoo will sleep well tonight, with visions of those boys’ bodies and the horrible barbarities inflicted upon them dancing in their heads. Perhaps Gonzales, and Yoo, and Rumsfeld and Bush will be able to envision the same inhumanities being visited upon their family members and loved ones as they drift off to peaceful slumber.

This cannot stand. We cannot allow this administration and its incomprehensible defense of and support for torture in violation of the “quaint” Geneva Conventions to remain.

The chickens have come home to roost. As ye sow, so shall ye reap.

I weep for my country, and for the families and loved ones of those in Iraq and Afghanistan, those yet living and those already dead.

Peace.

Yes, according to the administration, the Geneva conventions are “quaint.” When we refuse to treat our enemies according to the rules of war, we undermine our moral authority to condemn the mistreatment our our soldiers, and the diarist was calling attention to that.

The kind of misleading attack twilight zone engaged in here is the reason the country is turning away from right-wing extremism.

I just read DailyKOS and didn’t find such a comment, although if it’s there you can bet the wingnut liar @6 quoted it out of context — the only people who think torture is “quaint” are Republicans, who themselves are practitioners of it.

But I did find this:

“Republicans defeated a Democratic measure calling for an investigation into waste and fraud in military contracts today …. By a 52-to-44 vote, the Senate rejected the proposal by Senator Byron L. Dorgan, Democrat of North Dakota, calling for a panel like the one led by Harry Truman when he was a Senator, which uncovered many abuses in military spending during World War II. Mr. Dorgan said that military spending is the worst it has ever been ‘right now — right now! I think the American taxpayers are being fleeced.’”

For decades, Republicans have whined about “waste, fraud, and abuse” in government. So what do they do? They vote against investigating waste, fraud, and abuse in government.

I also found this:

“Republicans kill troops,”

which is true; and also this:

“I’ve asked this before, but what is it about the relatives of people killed by terrorists that these wingnuts hate so much? Recall that Ann Coulter smeared the widows of 9/11 victims and that many righty bloggers smeared the father of Nick Berg, who was beheaded in Iraq. Their sin, of course, was that they criticized America and George Bush. Let me put this as clearly as I can: To (wingnuts), the pain of those who lost loved ones to this war only matters to the extent that the bereaved allow their grief to be used to prop up the war effort and Bush himself. If the bereaved relatives don’t allow their grief to be used in this fashion, their sacrifice and loss no longer matter a whit — they’re not to be pitied or empathized with, but scorned and humiliated as brutally as possible. Despicable. Everything is viewed by partisan lenses by these people. And those who don’t slot nicely into the ‘Bush is the greatest and infallible!’ camp must be viciously attacked. They are really, really, ugly people.”

which also is true, and beneath contempt.

You never blame Al Qaeda for anything that they do—everything of which has not one bit of regard for anything like Geneva conventions. In fact, nothing they do does. They hide behind women and children, and they fire from Mosques. They know what rules our guys have to fight under, and they do everything chicken little thing opposite of it they can, to gain an edge. Then, as they shoot from the Mosque and put little kids in front of them, they cry “Those bad Americans—look at them.

Bush to Create World’s Largest Marine Protected Area Near Hawaii

President Bush today will create the world’s largest marine protected area, a total of 140,000 square miles of Pacific Ocean surrounding a necklace of islands and atolls that stretch from the main Hawaiian Islands to Midway Atoll and beyond, senior administration officials said.

The decision is a turnaround for the administration, which five years ago considered stripping more limited protections from the area that President Clinton had declared a coral reef ecosystem reserve. It’s also a sharp departure for an administration that has pushed to privatize some federal lands and has designated less wilderness than most presidents over the last 40 years.

A turning point came in April, when Bush sat through a 65-minute private White House screening of a PBS documentary that unveiled the beauty of — and perils facing — the archipelago’s aquamarine waters and its nesting seabirds, sea turtles and sleepy-eyed monk seals, all threatened by extinction.

The film seemed to catch Bush’s imagination, according to senior officials and others in attendance. The president popped up from his front-row seat after the screening; congratulated filmmaker Jean-Michel Cousteau, son of the late underwater explorer Jacques Cousteau; and urged the White House staff to get moving on protecting these waters.

“The apparent circularity of the pro-war machinations is especially disturbing. Then-New York Times reporter Judith Miller would get off-the-record info from the White House about weapons of mass destruction in Iraq, print the claims in Sunday’s paper, and then Cheney, Condoleezza Rice and others would cite the articles as evidence on the Sunday talk shows to justify the invasion.”

You seem to be asking: “who is acting “more often” according to the Geneva Conventions: the drafters and signatories to the Convention, for whom they are the “law of the land” according to the Constitution, or the citizens in the nation that the former invaded and occupied?” Hmmm, tough question indeed.

“Hint, if you say Al Qaeda terrorists, you’re wrong.”
Hint: if you think the al-Qaeda of Usama bin Laden is operating in Iraq, you’re certainly wrong, despite Zarqawi’s renaming of his organization (formerly Jama’at al-Tawhid wal-Jihad, or Monotheism and Holy War). Bn Laden condemns Zarqawi’s killing of Muslims, for example.

KOS folk actually believe that America is the same or more evil than Al Qaeda.
KOS folk (and, I think, Democrats) believe that our nation can and should operate under a somewhat a higher moral and legal standard than al Qaeda.

You never blame Al Qaeda for anything…They hide behind women and children, and they fire from Mosques.
You seem to be confusing al Qaeda with the insurgency in Iraq. They’re not the same thing. You’d think someone like you who fought there would know this.

They know what rules our guys have to fight under, and they do everything chicken little thing opposite of it they can, to gain an edge. Then, as they shoot from the Mosque and put little kids in front of them, they cry “Those bad Americans—look at them. So evil (while hoping they score more points with the American left, because they know that you are their REAL weapons.)
Actually, what the insurgents mostly do is blow up car bombs. Holing up in a mosque is pretty rare for them. The car bomb is their weapon of choice, and the president has pretty much said that we don’t have an answer for them, but we’re going to to stay there anyway, never increasing our troop strength or drawing it down, for the rest of his presidency. Throwing treasure and lives down a rat hole of an insoluble insurgency endlessly doesn’t sound like a plan to me. Why does it sound like one to you?

1. bin Laden wasn’t allied with Saddam and Iraq had nothing to do with 9/11, so WTF are we doing there?
2. The 20th century experience has been that absent brutal repression a la Tibet or the Iron Curtain countries, occupation DOES NOT WORK, and occupiers are driven out eventually by the implacable resistance of the inhabitants.
3. Terrorism isn’t a group, it’s a tactic, and the best way to make sure that NEW terroists are not created as you confront the current ones (and we DO confront the current ones) is to improve conditions in their environments. When more are created all the time, you can’t just kill them all no matter how bloodthirsty and cruel you make your nation become.

Again, the right-wing is trying to paint the Democrats as less than patriotic, less manly, for not engaging in a knee-jerk reaction to terrorists in Iraq.

Of course, this ignores the fact that Bush is doing exactly what Bin Laden wanted him to do. For years Bin Laden had been going around the middle east, arguing that Americans were evil, that they wanted to occupy arab countries to steal their oil, and that they despised muslims and engaged in torture. His efforts met with only limited success (measured in terms of recruits), because most of those in the Middle East looked around, and didn’t see any Americans trying to steel their oil or kill them.

He finally goads Bush into action. Even the Muslim world accepts the war in Afganistan, because the Taliban had become an embarrassment to them, also. Foreign fighters recruited by Bin Laden to fight the Americans in Afganistan were perpelexed and dis-illusioned when they found themselves not fighting the Americans, but instead fighting other Muslims.

But then Bush gets into Iraq, and the situation reverses itself. Iraq becomes the main propoganda point, and recruiting tool, for thousands of Al Quida fighters from around the Middle East. Bin Laden points to the permanant bases we are building there, and challenges young Saudis, Kuwaitis, Jordanians, and Palestinians to come free the land from the clutches of the crusaders.

Bush and company should understand this – its basically the same Karl Rove strategy which they have used in the past several elections. Whether using gay marriage or 9/11, they gather emotional support from their base by pointing to these outside “threats”.

In fact, I’m beginning to wonder if Bush and Bin Laden don’t really need each other to exist. Bin Laden would essentially be a broken-down hermit, without support, if not for Bush’s war in Iraq. Bush would probably not have won the 2004 election if not for Bin-Laden’s “October Surprise” videotape, released within hours of the last Presidential debate.

Perhaps the worst thing that could happen to Bush, politically, is for Bin Laden to be captured or killed?

Homosexuality appears to have existed in most if not all human societies throughout record history, suggesting it is not a purely learned behavior or cultural phenomenon. Also, homosexuality is not confined to homo sapiens; scientists have observed homosexual behavior among many animal species, lending further credence to arguments that homosexuality is a product of biology. However, to date, scientists have not agreed on a specific biological mechanism (or mechanisms) to explain variant sexual orientatiion. For a more detailed discussion of the biological evidence and theories, see http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Biology_and_sexual_orientation

We also have the anecdotal evidence of gays who tell us they didn’t choose to be homosexual.

51. Roger Rabbit spews:

Since sexual drive can (and does) vary among individual humans, it stands to reason that it also could be reversed in some humans.

John Carlson has a great discussion on about the KOS “Quaint” column. Loved when he said that the Left is claiming “we had it coming”

So you’re saying John Carlson is an illiterate fool? Thanks. I won’t waste any more time on him.

54. twilight zone spews:

You guys seem hard-pressed to acknowledge that our military is 99.9% (or more) of the time acting according to Geneva conv. And how often is it that Al Qaeda conforms to same???? The insurgency, if you want to call it (those are Al Qaeda people, but who cares–they’re beheaders, nonetheless)–how often do they fight and act toward their P.O.W.s according to Geneva?????

55. Roger Rabbit spews:

Liberals never claimed America “had it coming.” You seem to be forgetting the two cities hit by Al Qaeda — New York and Washington, D.C. — vote overwhelmingly Democratic, and a lot of people who considered themselves liberals died on those planes and in those buildings.

The left and the right both believe the terrorists are evil people. We disagree over the question of how to combat them.

71. Harry Tuttle spews:

The military should act in accordance with the Geneva Convention 100% of the time. If, to take a purely hypothetical example, it was ever deemed necessary to take the extreme measure of torturing a prisoner it should be done by an organization outside of the military, known to be capable of keeping state secrets ie. if anyone ever discovered it they wouldn’t live to tell the tale.

In other words, Sp4s shouldn’t be running around whooping it up over attacking a prisoner, complete with digital photos.

Just like before 2001.

72. Harry Tuttle spews:

Sophomoric twits do not control the debate here. Posing false choices is grade-school type debating.

If combatants are captured, regardless of how evil they may be, captors in the US military should not harm them unless they become violent or try to escape.

PUT YOUR MONEY WHERE YOUR MOUTH IS!!!

Roger Rabbit mailed a $99 donation to Operation Helmet to buy a deluxe helmet upgrade kit for one U.S. soldier serving in Afghanistan or Iraq!

Now let’s see you wingfucks who bray about how patriotic you are do the same thing. Put your money where your mouth is! I did! If Roger Rabbit can do it, so can you.

The fact Cher endorsed this charity is no excuse for refusing to support our troops! The money helps the troops, not to Cher.

Operation Helmet’s mailing address is:

According to their web site, donations are tax deductible.

And, a person can do all three of those things at the same time. Imagine that.

I’ll betcha if you check you’ll find that there are PEOPLE on those islands that are about to be surrounded by Bush’s lovely “marine wildlife refuge”. Now, what do you think those people have historically done for a living? FISH. So now instead they get to work for piddling wages in the sweatshop garment factories in the Marshalls making clothes that can then be sold here with labels that say ‘Made in USA”. This puts the final touches on one of Jack Abramoff’s unfinished projects.

And O how leftoids love to rant about their curtailed civil liberties – as if their streaming chant of “Fuck Bush” has been brooked by a single micron. Leftoids so want to be legendary figures delivering up corruscating speeches that will turn the hearts of the masses to rise up and slay their capitalist overlords -But –alas, that age has passed, and it prbably will not happen in their lifetimes. Plain old humdrum America is not good enough for them. What the left shares with the Jihad slayers is a wish for purity. The jihad murderers would truncate the excesses of the west with bombs; the left with social management; but the longing for purity is common to both.

Barbaric Torture – Shoot a Rabbit – Skin it – and then make

RABBIT STEW
1 three pound rabbit
6 small onions, chopped
1 bay leaf
½ cup chopped celery
2 tsp. salt
2 cups diced carrots
3 raw potatoes, cut up
3 tbs. flour
1 tbs. chopped parsley

Clean rabbit and soak in salted water. Drain, disjoint it in pieces for serving and place in a large kettle with onions, bay leaf, celery and salt. Cover with cold water and cook slowly until tender, about two hours. Add chopped carrots and potatoes and continue cooking until these vegetables are done. Smooth flour with a little cold water and add slowly. When thickened, add chopped parsley and serve hot on HorsesAss.Org.

Problem with this recipe is everyone would still have a bad taste in their mouths just all the other rabbits here do.

No, what is sad is how liberals will try to use this as an issue when it is not true. Perhaps if the liberals wouldn’t block shipments of that equipment at the Port of OLympia, the troops would have what they need. The hypcirsy is how liberals lie about troops not having equipment and block it at the Port of Olympia the next. That is what is sad.

Add this to your topics for discussion tonight.

I received an e-mail from the Dept. of Transportation. It said in part:

“Hear and Be Heard
at public open houses to be held this month:

Roads, Bridges & Mobility
Building our Transportation Future

You Have Choices: Put Yourself in the Driver’s Seat
Learn about the recently completed Tolling Study that examines ways to better use our existing road capacity and to fund sorely needed infrastructure to keep our state moving forward.

Take Control of the Wheel
Come speak with the Transportation Commissioners and see how today’s advances in tolling technology are effectively improving mobility.

See how other states are getting a grip on congestion by optimizing their roadway capacity through tolling.

Watch a 3-D animation of how electronic toll collection will work on Washington’s newest toll projects.

Hear the latest on the Tacoma Narrows Bridge and Good to Go!, the modern, easy-to-use e-sticker for your car so you can pay tolls without stopping.

Determine Your Destination
Then tell us what you think. We’ll use your comments to let the Washington State Legislature know how transportation issues affect our lifestyle and our economy.”

Sounds to me like the issue is already decided. This isn’t a “be heard” meeting as much as a “be told” meeting, an excuse to trot out a dog-and-pony show put on by the contractors who want the state to pay for an electronic tolling system.

I don’t like tolls on public highways, because they are the first step towards a segregated transportation system. The wealthy get favored treatment, the rest of us get stuck in the traffic, watching them whiz by. The wealthy will oppose future attempts to improve the entire system becuase it doesn’t affect them, so they don’t want to help pay for it. The toll lanes will get better, the rest of the system will decline.

It is interesting that the only meeting schedule for the Seattle area will be held in Mercer Island!

Also interesting today is an article that says Russians are getting fed up with the wealthy and influential being able to use the center lanes, and being largely immune to traffic laws.

Too much info to post all of it here. I put most of it here.

Yup, that’s it — kill ‘em all … men, women, and children … guilty or innocent. At least this wingfuck, unlike our resident trollfucks, does some research and got the number of the world’s Muslims right. (It took me 5 seconds to find it on Wikipedia, but that’s more work than any of HA’s trollfucks, who habitually muck up even elementary facts, are willing to invest in intellectual activity.)

Another letter in today’s Seattle Times (same link as above), by Dan Allison of Lake Forest Park, is worth quoting from:

“Regarding ‘Online persona can ruin your shot at that job’ [page one, June 11], it’s appalling that employers would be snooping around a prospective employee’s personal life using Google or the social-networking Web sites such as Facebook, MySpace, etc.

“Frankly, it’s none of their business what someone does in their personal life …. If a company determines through online searches that a prospective employee’s politics are at odds with those of the company or the boss, what’s to stop the hiring manager from throwing that person’s résumé in the trash? …

“Finally, one word of advice for people who put their persona online and who might be concerned about the misuse of this information: Don’t use your real name ….”

Any questions, trolls? Hey, if John Craig Herman of Hawaii doesn’t care if we know he’s the idiot posting as “JCH” (note use of real initials), that’s his business. As for “Roger Rabbit,” that’s a FAKE name, in case you wingidiots didn’t realize it.

Do the math: A 747 burns 5 gallons of jet fuel per mile (according to Boeing), and it’s 5,600 miles roundtrip from D.C. to Seattle, and there’s 42 gallons in a barrel, so that’s 667 barrels of kerosene.

[...................................................................Onward To Socialism!!!!]

17. Roger Rabbit spews:

Also in today’s Seattle Times, columnist Leonard Pitt, writing about Ann Coulter, offers us this memorable portrait of the people who worship the Virgin Bitch:

“Frankly, it’s easy to do what Coulter does. Just say the most outrageous thing in the most inflammatory way. Just give moral and mental cover to that small-minded, anti-intellectual strain of the electorate that recoils like Superman in the face of Kryptonite from complexity and incertitude. And when people call you on it, just wrap yourself in the flag and declare yourself a straight-shootin’ conservative under siege by that mean ol’ liberal media. … Ann Coulter is not reviled because she is conservative. … No, Coulter is reviled because she is mean, malicious, the barbed-wire frontwoman for a cabal of bloviators, bully boys and blowhards …. But again, it plays in Peoria. And why not? It is loud, simple, stupid.”

Small minded. Anti-intellectual. Recoils from complexity and incertitude. Wrap themselves in the flag and bawl about being abused by the mean liberal media. A cabal of bloviators, bully boys, and blowhards. Loud, simple, stupid.

Betcha Mr. Will Fucking Bigot Stoddard of Sequim voted for Rossi, too. He sounds like the type who would.

Gop Lies what a stupid name, and did your other half man/women/wife/girl friend/donkey/goat/sheep/ or more than one partner stick you out back in the dog house. You talk like you got your butt whip. Maybe you should go to your rainbow church the Godless Socialist Democrats, get on your prayer rug, and then thank the Socialist for you perfect world.

26. Roger Rabbit spews:

HEY TROLLS! I see that John Carlson is teaming up with Gary Locke to promote the REGIONAL TRANSPORTATION TAX PACKAGE. I think we’re now only one step away from Carlson doing shows on Rossi’s failed attempt to steal the election.

“Does anyone know how I can get in touch with that lovely lass?” Commentby I feel funny— 6/13/06@ 8:18 pm

No, but there’s more where she came. Try this:

1) Attend your district Democratic organization’s monthly meetings,

2) Join the U.W. Chapter of Young Democrats,

3) Attend Drinking Liberally,

4) Become an itinerant Democratic campaign worker,

5) Join Ex-Republicans Anonymous and attend their meetings at least three times weekly.

28. Mark The Redneck Kennedy spews:

Geez, you guys have had a bad run last week or so…

1) Zarqawi killed.
2) Dean Logan out.
3) Rove cleared.

Two of your guys taken out. Our guy untouched.

HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA

I find it interesting that you noticed her face. Most people don’t make it past the bottom half of the picture.

Carlson had Coulter on yesterday. She was great.

Commentby Mark The Redneck Kennedy— 6/13/06@ 8:25 pm

Looks like Mark duh Redneck is fixing to lose $500,000 and his penis this time!

HAR HAR HAR!

31. RUFUS Fitzgerald Kennedy spews:

Not whining about Ann Coulter again. Whaaaaaaaa. You dems are pussies. No wonder the military hates you. Hehe

32. Mark\'s Brother What Survived spews:

Geez, you CONS have had a bad run last week or so…

1) Zarqawi killed. (Have to invent a new Boogeyman)
2) Dean Logan got a better job.
3) Rove ratted out Cheney to save his ass.

One of your guy’s (Zarqawi) taken out, One of your favorite targets-for-lies gets a promotion, and the King Maker makes a deal to save his puffy ass.

HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA

33. RUFUS Fitzgerald Kennedy spews:

Looks like LA county is gearing up for a tight election. They got a good hack in Logan. I wonder what hack will replace him? I wonder if he will have that same dumb “deer in the headlight” look as Dean did when he fucks up the next election? Only time will tell.

34. pbj1 spews:

All the drunks gathering with their fat guts hanging out of their “Che” T-Shirts while balancing on the bar with butts so big only one cheek will fit on it at a time and the ass cracks are so large they’s make a plumber proud. All the while pontificating about things they know nothing about. Yup, just another liberal gathering.

35. ArtFart spews:

There’s a 12″ talking Ann Coulter doll that’s for sale in all sorts of places, including both right- and left-wing blog sites. Apparently the lefties think it’s a funny satire and the righties give ‘em to their daughters to teach them how a real lady is supposed to talk.

” … called bullshit on your tactic of having ‘untouchable’ kooks out there” – Commentby Mark The Redneck Kennedy— 6/13/06@ 8:25 pm

So it’s okay now if we call bullshit on your untouchable kooks? This one, for example? http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Image:North.jpg How about this one? http://www.nndb.com/people/923/000023854/ Or this one? http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Image:031002_RushLimbaugh.jpg Or the mother (father?) of all untouchable rightwing kooks? http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/1/16/Official_Portrait_of_President_Reagan_1981.jpg

37. ArtFart spews:

It seems a pretty good argument for riding the bus that Mark the Redneck won’t be riding with you. Probably don’t have to worry about him showing up at DL either, because after tooling around all day in his Suburban he can’t afford to buy any booze.

38. Veterans Running For Congress spews:

“No wonder the military hates you.”

As the Iraq Veterans running as Democrats for Congress, we must say that the Republicans are as respected as Bin Laden among the troops.

Q: What does a soldier say when he steps in camel shit?

A: Someone forgot to pick up their Republican again!

Running for congress because they cant take the heat of warfare….hmmmm. That sound familiar.

You aren’t having such a good week yourself, Redneck. The only people who can spend as much time on HA as you do are the unemployed. Not to mention FIVE HUNDRED THOUSAND DOLLARS gone, out the window, poooof! for alimony and child support.

Reddick, poor sap, can’t even pay a $100 gambling debt. Lucky for him he lost that bet to Goldy instead of the local Mafia bookie, or he’d be swimming in the Strait of Juan de Fuca wearing cement flippers.

I think Reddick and Coulter should get married. They’re perfect for each other. They’re both white Anglo male queers.

Nope. But there’s still hope — another hurricane is coming.

Of course I support the troops. I vote republican in liberal King county. Something a lot of troops stationed here dont get to do. It is my way of paying tribute to them.

DUFUS never tires of posting this lie; and I never tire of calling BULLSHIT on it.

FACT: Over 14,000 military/overseas ballots were counted in King County.

FACT: Only 16 military/overseas ballots were disqualified for arriving too late in King County.

Fact- Rabbit source is the KCRE. Which means everything else is BULLSHIT.

Just because you call bullshit fact doesn’t make it fact. It is still bullshit. Nuff said.

55. RUFUS Fitzgerald Kennedy spews:

I wonder why we have heard any polls regarding Bush? Are the MSM running out of democrats to poll? I guess they will have to dip into the pool of liberal illegal voters now. Hehe

56. The Military spews:

Really, RUFUS, quit voting against us. We now you hate us, but just sit this one out. We need your “support” like we need another IED under our underarmoured Humvees.

Just sit back, relax, and we will get in touch with assholes like you when we get back.

RUFUS! Ixney on the SMMAY!

We got your back… we are owned by the defense contractors and global corporations… but you keep up attracting attention to us and more people will realize that we are nothing but mouthpieces for the Project for a New American Century!

Sure we report polls you don’t like, but we can’t get away with lying about everything! And Bush doesn;t matter, we are just providing more room for Republicans to distance themselves from Bush and with the help of our voting machines ensure a continued rule by our puppets in congress.

Stop fucking up the plan!

63. Roger Rabbit spews:

Well, let’s see, what’ve we got so far?

“Ummm…. if the President says it… it’s not a ‘leak’. A ‘leak’ is disclosing information without authorization. Since the President is the boss, it is by definition not a leak since he can authorize whatever the fuck he wants.
