    I’ve been thinking about the Predator attack that the US did to kill that Al Awlaki character in Yemen. I believe it’s going to come back to haunt us. I think we have som much trouble in the Middle East because we’re ove in the Middle East. If we withdraw from trying to convert them to an Israel-loving, American style democracy, we’re wasting our time, efforts, money and the lives of our troops.

    The reason these Islamic countries hate our guts is because we’ve been trying to run their countries and cultures for 60 years. Supporting Israel no-matter-what ain’t helping! The Israeli-Palestinian conflict is a religious war involving the possession and control of land that both sides view as “holy” dirt. The US doesn’t fight religious wars, and it’s time for us to declarre neutrality in this one.

    Do you want to see an end to Islamo-terror? Then get out of the Middle East and let them live in their Islamic world. Also, Israel has had enough help from us: it’s time to cut the cord and let them stand by themselves.

    Do you want to see an end to Islamo-terror? Then get out of the Middle East and let them live in their Islamic world.

    Yup – to a large degree correct. The random presence of fossilized peat bogs that rich countries are addicted to has allowed ‘free’ money to flow into undeveloped tribal societies – allowing them to have goodies without having to develop infrastructure or produce a product – essentially twisted economies, with crony/kleptocracy controlling the wealth.

    WTF has the House of Saud ever done for the world to justify their fabulous wealth and chokehold on the world economy?

    I’ll say this again – the US has 848,491 MW installed fossil-fuel powered electricity generating capacity. At a cost of about $1.5 million per MW of industrial-sized wind power, we could have replaced all of the fossil fuel power electricity generation for about $1.3 Trillion – a lot, but less than the total we’re going to spend on Iraq and Afghanistan.

    Now, most of that present generating capacity is coal driven – but imaging the secondary effects – industrial, environmental/health, technology, jobs – that would have followed such a program.

    Just think of what we would have done with a parallel program in advancing electric vehicles and their needed infrastucture. Just skylarking, say we spent a trillion on that and achieved significant market penetration with electric vehicles and their charging infrastructure. At that point we’d have spent $2.2 Trillion, have gained advantage in wind technology and production capacity (with which to dominate world markets), electric automotive technology (ditto world markets), have nearly wiped out air pollution from coal-fired plants, vastly reduced pollution from cars (enjoying health and environmental benefits from both), AND devastated the economic model that petro-regimes like Saudi Arabia (AKA 10 lashes for women driving) and Kuwait and Iraq and Iran depend upon, forcing them to modernize and evolve or get left in the dust.

    All for less than the $3 Trillion we’re spending on idiot adventures in the Middle East right now.

    Oh my Larry O’Donnell is still on that Sarah Palin is in trouble at Fox kick now for two years. And that video? HAR HAR HAR HAR HAR. Attacking Palin about if you are not on her side you are the enemy? Well witness the witless attack by some HA morons on zzzippy. When he went moderate the sharp claws and hatchets appeared from the usual suspects.

    And Larry talks about his audience? Well let’s go back four days ago! He’s down to a paltry 185,000 leftist tools a night. So Perfesser Darryl, do you TIVO or watch him live with the other 184,999 peeps?

    On MSNBC, meanwhile, Lawrence O’Donnell has lost 100,000 viewers

    But this is very telling

    “MSNBC may be rediscovering the downside of partisan news,” said Chris Daly, a professor of journalism at Boston University. “That is, the size of your audience is essentially cajoled by the size of the electorate that already agrees with you.” – NY Times

    PuddyCommentary: I guess the NYT is saying the HA faithful percentage to WA State as a whole is similar to the MSNBC audience to America as a whole! Small potatoes in both instances!

    The network’s prime-time lineup averaged 526,000 viewers per night in September, while 8 p.m. host Bill O’Reilly pulled in an audience of 611,000 people—triple the audience of Anderson Cooper or Lawrence O’Donnell.

    I noticed Lib Scumbag didn’t discuss Herman Cain. Then again some blacks are scared of Herman Cain.

    Hughley’s tirade against Cain may have gone unnoticed were it not for @blackrepublican tweeting about Hughley’s incendiary commentary. “Herman Cain won the Florida straw poll by a lot! I loved Herman Cain when he played Mr. Gaines on a different World,” Hughley tweeted. This prompted other tweets by Hughley and his followers that implied Cain was an Uncle Tom and not REALLY black because he is a conservative who doesn’t choose to believe in Democrat plantation policies that keep blacks economically oppressed.

    Now didn’t Stupid Solution Steve infer this about me yesterday? Anyone who leaves the reservation isn’t black! Or this…

    This enticed others to compare Cain to the “original Cream of Wheat,” “Stepin Fetchit” and the “butler in Gone with the Wind” — all of which conjure up demeaning, racist caricatures used during the pre- and post-Civil War era to describe the “dutiful slave.”

    It’s shocking that, in the 21st century, blacks would so viciously attack a black man because he didn’t agree with their politics. Martin Luther King Jr. would be horrified because this isn’t the freedom he fought and died for.

    Yes, Herman is right AGAIN! As they say pass the buttered popcorn!

    Unhappy members of the Congressional Black Caucus “probably would be marching on the White House” if Obama were not president.

    Or this

    “In my fight against terrorism, to me, the biggest terrorist is Obama, in the United States of America. For me, I’m trying to fight the terrorism that’s actually causing the other forms of terrorism. The root causes of the terrorism is the stuff that the U.S. government allows to happen and the foreign policies that we have in place in different countries that inspire people to become terrorists. And it’s easy for us because it’s really just some oil, which we can really get on our own.” – Lope Fiasco

    Now I know why Barack ObamAA+ is attacking Gibson Guitar and their fret wood

    Henry Juszkiewicz the CEO of Gibson Guitar said
    “He is using the levers of government to not only redistribute, but to penalize. I see a difference between what he said and what he’s doing.”

    Or this one from Maxine Waters when she became upset over Barack ObamAA+ scolding black people at his Congressional Black Caucus speech…

    “a bit curious” and “don’t know who he was talking to.” ”The president would never have addressed other communities like gays or Jews or Hispanics in the way he did at the annual awards dinner for the Congressional Black Caucus on Saturday when he told the audience to “stop complaining.”

Some of the suburban and ex-urban stuff will never be sold.

But what Stockman says is just common sense — people are paying off debts and not in a mood to consume. It took 25 years to get here and it’s going to take time to heal this economic wound.

  52. 57

    Roger Rabbit spews:

    @39 “So why do DUMMOCRAPTS only push higher taxes and demagogue anyone who pushes entitlement reform Roger DOPEY Rabbit?”

    Because it isn’t true that Democrats only push taxes and demagogue anyone who brings up entitlement reform. Of course, what Republicans are pushing isn’t entitlement reform, it’s privatizing entitlement in order to gut them, and we’re against that. Obama specifically put entitlement reform on the table but Republicans are against entitlement reform. They insisted on turning Medicare into a block grant program and, in their usual fashion, refused to compromise or negotiate. Obama and congressional Democrats quite properly told them, in language suitable for quoting by media, to go fuck themselves.

    Oh, and before I forget, you can go fuck yourself too, pussybutt.

    More whack from the HA DOPEY Rabbit. There were no specifics in the Barack ObamAA+ entitlements proposal. They were going to play the demagoguery game. Except this time Republicans asked for Barack ObamAA+’s specific plan. It was MIA. Even Jay Carney his official whitey house dailypresser mouthpiece admitted that to UpChuck Todd of NBC. U need to see the link again with Carney’s actual words Roger DOPEY Rabbit?

    Medicare into what? Barack ObamAA+ is raiding Medicare of $500 Billion to pay for Barack ObamAA+Care! So don’t parade on this blog with suppositions. We have facts on our side!

    If this is as frightening to the corporatists as Chris Hedges seems to think, then they can do one of two things to nip this in the bud:

    1) start spending that wad of cash they’ve been sitting on and start throwing off jobs, the excuses they’ve whining about be damned,

    2) lobby for tax reform so that loopholes are closed, all corporations are placed on a level taxation playing field and all of them pay. And with the enhanced revenues, government can sop up the excess unemployment in the economy with public works projects.

    But they won’t do anything smart. They’ll push for what they’ve always pushed for – repression and violence against dissent.

Do we really need 7 or 8 more aircraft carriers, in addition to our existing 11, when no other country has more than 2?

    Koch Brothers Flout Law Getting Richer With Secret Iran Sales

    By Asjylyn Loder and David Evans – Oct 2, 2011 3:00 PM PT

    Bloomberg Markets Magazine

    In May 2008, a unit of Koch Industries Inc., one of the world’s largest privately held companies, sent Ludmila Egorova-Farines, its newly hired compliance officer and ethics manager, to investigate the management of a subsidiary in Arles in southern France. In less than a week, she discovered that the company had paid bribes to win contracts.

    “I uncovered the practices within a few days,” Egorova- Farines says. “They were not hidden at all.”

    She immediately notified her supervisors in the U.S. A week later, Wichita, Kansas-based Koch Industries dispatched an investigative team to look into her findings, Bloomberg Markets magazine reports in its November issue.

    By September of that year, the researchers had found evidence of improper payments to secure contracts in six countries dating back to 2002, authorized by the business director of the company’s Koch-Glitsch affiliate in France.

    “Those activities constitute violations of criminal law,” Koch Industries wrote in a Dec. 8, 2008, letter giving details of its findings. The letter was made public in a civil court ruling in France in September 2010; the document has never before been reported by the media.

    Egorova-Farines wasn’t rewarded for bringing the illicit payments to the company’s attention. Her superiors removed her from the inquiry in August 2008 and fired her in June 2009, calling her incompetent, even after Koch’s investigators substantiated her findings. She sued Koch-Glitsch in France for wrongful termination.

    Okee Dokee ! Here we go…I’ll pop the popcorn, maybe one of you guys can fly for some pop?

    Dick, Liz Cheney Praise Anwar Al-Awlaki Killing, Say Obama Owes Bush Administration An Apology

    First Posted: 10/2/11 11:39 AM ET Updated: 10/2/11 05:54 PM ET

    Former Vice President Dick Cheney, along with his daughter Liz, praised President Barack Obama Sunday for the drone strike that killed Anwar al-Awlaki, but also said that the president owes the Bush administration an apology.

    Dick Cheney called the killing of the U.S.-born al Qaida cleric in Yemen on Friday “a very good strike” and “justified” in an appearance on CNN’s “State of the Union” Sunday.

    But he also said Obama should take back his criticism of the Bush administration’s tactics in the war on terrorism.

    “The thing I am waiting for is for the administration to go back and correct something they said two years ago, when they criticized us for quote overreacting to the events of 9/11,” Cheney said. “They in effect said we had walked away from our ideals, taking policy contrary to our ideals when we had enhanced interrogation techniques. They have clearly moved in the direction of taking robust action when they feel it is justified. In this case, it was. They need to go back and reconsider what the president said in Cairo.”

    Gee, I wonder what Obama’s response should be? Maybe Biden can deliver it.

    When President Obama says that the rich don’t pay their share of taxes, he is lying, distorting, and demagoging.

    Here are the facts according to the IRS:

    • Those making more than $1 million pay 24% of income in taxes
    … • Those making $200,000 to $300,000 pay 17.5%
    • Those making $100,000 to $125,000 pay 9.9%
    • Those making $50,000 to $60,000 pay 6.3%
    • Those making $20,000 to $30,000 pay 2.5%

    And what of millionaires who pay no taxes?

    There are 1,470 of them. They represent six-tenths of one percent of all those with million dollar incomes in the U.S. If we assume that they make an average income of $2 million a year each, taxing them at the same rate as other millionaires (24.4%) would yield $367 million, which would increase Treasury income tax revenues by 30 one-hundredths of one percent or one-third of one-tenth of one percent!

    Overall, the IRS reports that the revenues from the income tax are sharply skewed toward taxes on the rich:

    • The top 1% pays 39%
    • The top 5% pays 60%
    • The top 10% pays 72%

    Economists Call For Debt Relief

    “More than three years after the financial crisis struck, the U.S. economy remains stuck in a consumer debt trap. It’s a situation that could take years to correct itself. That’s why some economists are calling for … massive debt relief.”

    “‘We’ve put this off for too long,’ said L. Randall Wray, a professor of economics at the University of Missouri-Kansas City. ‘We need debt relief and jobs and until we get these two things, I think recovery is impossible.'”

    And there’s also this:

    “The bailout of the nation’s banks, a nearly trillion dollar stimulus package and an array of programs by the Federal Reserve to keep interest rates near zero may have stopped the economy from falling into the abyss. But none of those measures have fixed the underlying problem of too much US consumer debt.”

    The article notes that “U.S. households are still more indebted than their counterparts in Austria, Germany, Spain, France and even Greece” and “[t]ens of millions of U.S. citizens remain burdened with mortgages they can no longer afford, in addition to soaring credit card bills and sky high student loans.”

    The effect on the eocnomy is that “[t]rillions of dollars in outstanding consumer debt is stifling demand for goods and services and that’s one reason … cash-rich U.S. companies are reluctant to hire and unemployment remains stubbornly high.”

    http://www.cnbc.com/id/44752775

    Roger Rabbit Commentary: One of the big takeaways here is that the bank bailouts, Obama stimulus, and Federal Reserve saved the economy from “the abyss.” Republicans were wrong on all three counts — they hated the bank bailouts (which cost taxpayers nothing), Obama’s stimulus (which they claim was ineffective and merely added to the deficit), and they hate the whole idea of a central bank so much they’d like to dismantle the Fed. Which tells you something. Namely, if Republicans were in charge right now, we would fall into an economic abyss. So my question is, why would anyone vote for Republicans, unless he’s an America-hating al-Qaeda terrorist?

  94. 110

    Roger Rabbit spews:

    From the same article:

    “Take Donald Bonner, for example, a 61-year-old from Bayonne, New Jersey, who lost his job working on a dock in June. Back in March, he attended a ‘loan modification’ fair held by JPMorgan Chase in New York. He has lived in his home since 1970, but was on the verge of losing his job. After falling behind on his $2,800-a-month mortgage, he sought to reduce his monthly payment.”

    Now wait a minute. Let’s have a “what’s wrong with this picture” moment here. Why does this guy owe a $2,800 monthly payment on a house he’s lived in for 40 years? Why wasn’t that mortgage paid off 10 years ago? And the article doesn’t say he lost his job, it says he was denied a loan modification because his income was too high, which sounds like he’s still good money.

    What we have here is a guy who used his house as a piggybank and got himself overextended. He’s not unemployed, he simply can’t afford the loan service on all the money he borrowed to, we may assume, live high on the hog. Why should someone like that get a writeoff?

    I don’t have a mortgage, car loan, credit card debt, or student loan. All of my loans were repaid in full, with full interest, and without any tax credits. If Donald Bonner’s lender takes it in the shorts, the cost of that will be passed on to people like me who paid full freight. In other words, he’ll be rewarded for bad behavior and I’ll be punished for good behavior. That’s called “moral hazard,” folks, and a government that goes down that path is a civilization that’s rotting from within and is heading for a fall. When you start saying to the whole world that good behavior will be punished and bad behavior will be rewarded guess what people are gonna do?

    You’ve got to laugh at the chutzpah of President Dispshit. I was just watching his June, 2009 Emperor of the World speech proclaiming how America would handle world relations much different than the Bush Administration. This speech came after 1-1/2 years of constant hot rhetoric demonizing Bush, Cheney & Rumsfeld.

    However the actual record shows, President Dipshit has not only utilized virtually every tool left to him by Bush…he has built on them!
    Gitmo–Still here.
    Drones–He is in love with using them.

    The only thing he can possibly claim (and who knows what really goes on) is the use of advanced interogation techniques.

    But Obama must somehow make the case that it is more civil to blow someone up and have collateral damage…than capture them and interrogate them or even waterboard them!

    Obama really beats everything. He closely follows Saul Alinsky’s Rules for Radicals at every turn. He had us for awhile with his silver tongue speeches and no record to compare them to. Now Obama has a clear record of action and inaction. And that will be his undoing.

  105. 121

    Everett spews:

    One other thing to keep your eye on.
    The RealClearPolitics Poll of Polls shows President Dipshit at -8.5 on the Approval Rating.

    http://www.realclearpolitics.c.....-1044.html
    The polls included are left & right-leaning and have a range of -7 to -13.
    The Class Warfare ranting and rhetoric made a couple points difference short-term.
    Even worse for Obama are his high Strong Disapproval ratings. He’s at 42% Strong Disapproval. That means he must whip back to the middle to have a chance. He will certainly try. But with so many business leaders now publicly ripping on him, I suspect the damage is done. No job-creators will ever really trust the guy.
    Lack of trust will be his demise.

    VIDEO: Reagan Called For An End To ‘Crazy’ Tax Loopholes That Let Millionaires Pay Less Than Bus Drivers

    By Pat Garofalo on Oct 3, 2011 at 9:05 am

    When President Obama released his plan for “the Buffett rule,” which involves closing tax loopholes and ensuring that millionaires pay their fair share in taxes, he explained that “middle-class families shouldn’t be paying higher taxes than millionaires and billionaires.” “Warren Buffett’s secretary shouldn’t pay a higher tax rate than Warren Buffett,” he said.

    Ever since, many Republicans have been attacking Obama for inciting “class warfare.” “It looks like the President wants to move down the class warfare path,” said House Budget Committee Chairman Paul Ryan (R-WI). “I don’t think I would describe class warfare as leadership,” agreed Speaker of the House John Boehner (R-OH).

    However, if calling for an end to millionaires having lower tax rates than their secretaries is class warfare, Obama is only the latest class warrior to occupy the Oval Office. In a June 6, 1985 speech at Northside High School in Atlanta, Georgia, then President Ronald Reagan explained that tax loopholes allowing a millionaire to pay lower taxes that a bus driver were “crazy,” because they allowed the “truly wealthy to avoid paying their fair share”:

    Here’s one for the (latest) “hit-and-run” troll-fuck that we’ll never see again.

    I’m against reflexively shutting down people we don’t agree with – but on this issue I’ve come to the same conclusion as you guys.
    “Puddy” is not here to discuss or argue, he brings nothing constructive or thought-provoking, he is abusive and I suspect he has an agenda that does not include open, forthright debate.

    Again, I’m against the kind of banning done by that idiot pudge over at SP – anyone who disagrees is branded a liar and has their comments deleted. In this case, I think we’ve put up with “Puddy” for a very very long time, and have demonstrated great patience. He has repaid this with relentless posting of word salad and insults and links that often do not support what he contends that they do – quite dishonestly. We’ve all taken our turns tearing his arguments to shreds, and there really is nothing worthwhile there anymore. Fact is, his posts are only destructive and derailing and insulting.

    Time to go bye-bye puddles.

  116. 133

    Steve spews:

    I agree that banning people for having views not to our liking would be wrong. Banning a couple of trolls who bring nothing but vile hate and lies has nothing to do with free speech.

    Everett spews:

    It’s laughable that you leftists are so unhinged that you now need to resort to “BANNING” contrary opinions. Puddybud has repeatedly brought factual info and his opinion on it…like several others.
    Here’s an axample–

    7. Puddybud, who read how Mr DISGUSTING “I live off the net” all day spews:
    Oh my Larry O’Donnell is still on that Sarah Palin is in trouble at Fox kick now for two years. And that video? HAR HAR HAR HAR HAR. Attacking Palin about if you are not on her side you are the enemy? Well witness the witless attack by some HA morons on zzzippy. When he went moderate the sharp claws and hatchets appeared from the usual suspects.

    And Larry talks about his audience? Well let’s go back four days ago! He’s down to a paltry 185,000 leftist tools a night. So Perfesser Darryl, do you TIVO or watch him live with the other 184,999 peeps?
    On MSNBC, meanwhile, Lawrence O’Donnell has lost 100,000 viewers
    But this is very telling
    “MSNBC may be rediscovering the downside of partisan news,” said Chris Daly, a professor of journalism at Boston University. “That is, the size of your audience is essentially cajoled by the size of the electorate that already agrees with you.” – NY Times
    PuddyCommentary: I guess the NYT is saying the HA faithful percentage to WA State as a whole is similar to the MSNBC audience to America as a whole! Small potatoes in both instances!
    The network’s prime-time lineup averaged 526,000 viewers per night in September, while 8 p.m. host Bill O’Reilly pulled in an audience of 611,000 people—triple the audience of Anderson Cooper or Lawrence O’Donnell.

    What’s wrong with this post…other than you may not like it??
    And look at all the vile comments from YLB and Rujax among others.

    If you were into banning someone, I’d start with those 2 a$$holes.
    One is an perpetually unemployed loser living off his wife…and the other is mean and nasty.

    I appreciate Roger Rabbit’s comments. He tries to engage in a debate occassionally. The rest of you seem to want to preach to the choir or just read your own posts. Not very enlightening…but hey, it’s not my Blog.
