  1. 1


    Crazy Michelle Bachmann is sceeeered of a “one child policy”..

    Boycott Wal-Mart Michelle…

    Why would anyone with even two functioning synapses between their ears want to vote for such people?

    “Why would anyone with even two functioning synapses between their ears want to vote for such people?”

    Beats me. I’m not gonna vote for her.

  3. 3


    Add Joe the idiot fucking fake plumber to the list of too looney tunes for freaking words.

    Shit Michelle must really be the inspiration for a a wave of morons out there.

    If she could do it – why not them????

    The right wing grows ever more insane – everyday doubling down on the war on women, cutting taxes on the rich, “saving” social security and medicare by destroying them, blaming the country’s problems on the shrinking ranks of unionized workers and government employees.

    It’s really hard to keep up with it. And alas that’s what the right wing is counting on:

    All of us who care about sanity throwing up our hands and just walking away..

    Don’t let the evil bastards get away it!

    Since I’ve once again been banned (by no less a Poobah than Sharkansky himself) from posting factual material on unSP, I think I’ll post it here regarding comments by Warren Peterson.

    He says, regarding the recent contraceptive ‘debate':

    “…but it has also opened a potential wedge issue, true or not ….”

    Is it true or not? Be brave and venture an opinion.

    Does it make sense to you that Obama would be trying to deflect peoples’ awareness of the state of the economy when at this time in 2008, we were losing 700,000 jobs a month, and this month we gained 225,000 new jobs.

    Warren, my political BS meter regarding your comments is well into the red zone.

    Michael spews:

    Cities and counties are really struggling right now. A few small, rural, burgs have decided to close up shop lately, we’re starting to see a few cities and counties file for bankruptcy and this showed up in the NYT today.

    Suffolk County, one of the largest counties outside New York City, projected a $530 million deficit over a three-year period and declared a financial emergency. Its Long Island neighbor, Nassau County, is already so troubled that a state oversight board seized control of its finances last year.

    In a radio interview on Friday, Mr. Bloomberg noted the spreading financial woes of local governments, saying, “Towns and counties across the state are starting to have to make the real choices — fewer cops, fewer firefighters, slower ambulance response, less teachers in front of the classroom.”

    And Thomas S. Richards, the mayor of Rochester, recently described a grim situation facing New York’s cities in testimony to the State Legislature, saying, “I fear that Rochester and other upstate cities are approaching the point of financial failure and an inevitable financial control board — as is the case in Buffalo — unless something is done now.”

    We’re not in a recovery, folks. We’re still completely fucked and working things though. Maybe in another couple years we might start to recover, but the “recovered” America wont look much like the free spending, bubble economy, America that existed before the crash.

  7. 7


    Anyone still feeling bad for Andrew Breitbart? No, not talking about his kids who have lost a father or his wife who has lost a husband.

    I’m talking about the guy himself. Sure 43 is too young unless he’s abusing drugs and alcohol. Pretty sad in any case.

    Well you shouldn’t feel that bad. Breitbart was a freaking lunatic. Unhinged..

    Look at this guy.. Pretty sad guy.. A mass-murdering freak..

    Breitbart called him a “multi-culturalist” – akin to a “black studies” or “woman studies” major at a college campus.

    Only a freaking nut case or someone on some serious drugs would think this way.

    Not gonna miss you Andy.

    Roger Rabbit spews:

    Speaking of nut cases …

    “Berkeley Police Chief Michael Meehan has come under fire after sending an armed sergeant to Oakland Tribune reporter Doug Oakley’s home in the middle of the night to push for changes to a story.

    “According to the Oakland Tribune, Meehan claimed that Oakley misquoted him in a story. Minutes after reading the article, Meehan ordered Sgt. Mary Kusmiss to visit the reporter’s home and request that he correct the article — at 12:45 a.m.”

    Roger Rabbit Commentary: Bad as our local rag is, I’m glad I don’t live in Berkeley, where the police chief edits the newspaper.

    Roger Rabbit spews:

    Global Warming? What Stinkin’ Global Warming?

    “Great Lakes ice coverage declined an average of 71 percent over the past 40 years, according to a report from the American Meteorological Society.”

    Roger Rabbit Commentary: Hey wingnuts! How d’ya like this fucking ICE AGE we’re in??

    Glad they caught this nut case.

    Police in Washington state on Saturday arrested a 34-year-old man accused of stabbing a judge and shooting a sheriff’s deputy in a courthouse struggle, one day after he fled the small town of Montesano.

    Law enforcement officers in neighboring Thurston County took Steven Daniel Kravetz into custody Saturday afternoon at his mother’s home in the state capital of Olympia, Grays Harbor County Undersheriff Rick Scott said.

    The gun taken from the deputy during Friday’s courthouse attack and other evidence were recovered, he said.

    Roger Rabbit spews:

    @13 34-yo white male from small town with a domestic violence history shoots a deputy an stabs a judge. Watcha wanna bet this guy has a militia or other anti-government affiliation?

  13. 15

    Michael spews:

    He’s certainly got my vote for jackass of the week.

    I’m thinking if he was a militia type he would have gone into the courthouse with a gun (he shot the deputy with her own gun) or made have made a bunch of threats before hand. The whole thing’s weird.

    Liberal Scientist thinks that concentrated power and wealth should be met with suspicion, not adoration spews:

    Watch this. This is the Republican base. In Mississippi.

    Lincoln should have let the South go…

  15. 17

    Roger Rabbit spews:

    “Canadian companies backing the Keystone XL [pipeline] … expect it to … raise Midwest oil prices by reducing ‘oversupply’ in that region.”

    Roger Rabbit Commentary: Why do Republicans want American drivers to pay more for gasoline? For that matter, why do Republicans hate America?

  16. 19

    No time for Fascism spews:

    Would it be logical to extend the ban on contraction for women on moral objections of the employer to also include not covering HIV treatments if the employer had a moral objection to gay people?

  17. 21

    No Time for Fascists spews:

    @19,20 It seems like the logical next step.
    What would be after that? No health care for anyone who doesn’t go to their church?

  18. 22

    rhp6033 spews:

    # 19: Why does the employer’s moral objections trump the morals/health care decisions/financial situation/etc. of the employees?

    When you understand that, you will understand how Republicans think. To them, the employer should have unlimited rights over their employees, including where they live, who they vote for, whether or not they marry, their conduct off work hours, where they go to church, etc.

    In other words, indentured servitude.

    Just out of curiosity – is it the 34-yo white male that has a history of domestic violence, or the small town?
