Drinking Liberally

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:

    Get it.

    So you manage to prove Kerry right by being too stupid to know it when someone is poking fun at you.

    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?

    “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???

    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!

    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.

    In a move some fear could open an avenue for terrorism, prospective cabbies would no longer have to prove they are in the country legally, under a measure proposed by taxi officials, The Post has learned. The Taxi and Limousine Commission will vote Wednesday on whether to reduce driver requirements to just a valid driver’s license and Social Security card and do away with proof of legal residency or citizenship.

    Folks, only in Seattle will the congregation treat people who are trying to save their schools so cruelly. 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.

    “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.

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?

There’s a reason Ross Perot published United We Stand and Paul Tsongas released his Call to Economic Arms but the no Republican candidate came out with anything similar in the early 1990s. 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.

    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
    friends…If not, and I would be amazed, DELETE
    it!!”

    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

    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.

    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.

    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!

    Source of data: http://www.taxpolicycenter.org.....?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.”

    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.

    amy spews:

    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.

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.

    rhp6033 spews:

    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"!!]

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.

    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.

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.

Drinking Liberally

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

Assuming somebody brings along a breathalyzer and a 200-pound man, I intend to run a little experiment to see exactly how many drinks it takes to get “Mike McGavick drunk”. I’ve got a free copy of Sen. Byron Dorgan’s new book, Take This Job and Ship It for the first person to show up with a functioning breathalyzer, and 8 or 9 free drinks and ride home for one lucky volunteer.

Washington liberals will also be drinking tonight in the Tri-Cities. Here’s a full run down of WA’s ten Drinking Liberally chapters:

    RUMSFELD ACCUSES WAR CRITICS OF ‘MORAL CONFUSION’

    “SALT LAKE CITY, Utah (Aug. 29) – Defense Secretary Donald H. Rumsfeld on Tuesday accused critics of the Bush administration’s Iraq and counterterrorism policies of trying to appease ‘a new type of fascism.’

    “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.”

    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.

    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.

    It looks like the righties here are doing a little deflection and contenting themselves with sliming the University of Pennsylvania in general, rather than focus on the prof. who’s really got their dander up:

    On both Monday’s NBC Nightly News and a prime time special, left-wing professor Michael Eric Dyson, author of Come Hell or High Water: Hurricane Katrina and the Color of Disaster. Williams, from New Orleans, set up his Nightly News segment by arguing the disaster “destroyed” a lot and “it exposed a lot, too, including, some say, the dicey issues of race and class in our country.” Dyson, a regular on Bill Maher’s HBO show and a professor at the University of Pennsylvania, declared: “The people in New Orleans were left behind long before the vicious winds and violent waters of Hurricane Katrina came along to wash them away.”

    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.

    Yes. How come liberals (such as yourself) engage in the same tactics everyday? And spare me the the juvenille argument that “they started it”, so liberals have to do it too.

    So is the following guilt-by-association argument specious?

    It time to post the latest rant from the new “Little Hitler”. Pay close attention to the anti-semitic undertones of his letter.

    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.

    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.

    I think Larry’s underlying issue was that he wasn’t as off-the-wall hilarious as, say, Proud Liberal Vet was. When PLV was here we had Antarctica Now! and haiku insult threads.

    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.
    Now: 7 sided dice. For the love of God, frikkin’ DICE.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    Anti-Semitism at CNN

    I wonder how much longer it will be before the liberal press begins to push for Isreal’s removal from the Middle East? I also wonder whose side Goldy will be on…………..

    CNN’s Jeff Greenfield appeared on “Imus” Tuesday morning and said this about the Middle East:

    “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.

    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.

    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?”

    Commentby Roger Rabbit—— 6/19/06@ 9:58 pm

    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.”

    IL: Obama Warns of Gas Guzzling Cars in Town Hall Meeting

    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.”

    After the meeting… Obama left in a GMC Envoy after admitting to favoring SUV’s himself.

    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.

    Haq’s friend said he couldn’t believe the timid, “geeky” man he knew from the tutoring center was capable of such violence.

    “Are you sure we’re talking about the same person?” he said Sunday………….

    He said Haq was not a devout Muslim and often complained that the Tri-Cities were too politically conservative.

    “I’m beginning to think I was his only friend in the Tri-Cities. I don’t recall him hanging out with anybody else.”

    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.

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.

    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.

    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.

    If the scientific theory or proof doesn’t fit on a bumper sticker, MTR ain’t gonna unnerstand it!

    JCH you need to get your allegations straight.

    The alleged target of Hilary’s “f*cking jew bastard” tirade was Paul Fray, and not Dick Morris. Fray was Bill Clinton’s campaign manager, and the alleged tirade was made after Bill Clinton lost his 1974 relection bid. 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.

    Dick Morris was on FOX [Hannity and Colmes] and state CLEARLY Hillary attacked him ["FUCKING JEW BASTARD!"] several times. Dick works as a polling consultant for the Clintons at the time.

    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.
