    Roger Rabbit spews:

    Mrs. Rabbit and I just finished watching “Mississippi Burning” on TV, a heavily fictionalized dramatization of the 1964 murders of 3 civil rights workers, and a movie I’ve seen before.

    The 3 civil rights workers were murdered by Ku Klux Klansmen in Neshoba County, Mississippi.

    Only 16 years later, in 1980, Saint Ronnie launched his presidential campaign in Neshoba County with a speech that referred to “states rights.”

    And you Republicans think Reagan was one of America’s greatest presidents? A guy who started his presidential campaign by paying homage to the murderers of those 3 civil rights workers?

    Nah. Reagan was just a glib Hollywood actor who knew how to turn a phrase, but didn’t have enough character to speak the words “civil rights” in Neshoba County.

    But then, what do you expect from a leader of the Grand Old Racist Party?

    By the way, Reagan didn’t engineer the dissolution of the Soviet regime; Gorbachev did.

    Roger Rabbit spews:

    “Ronald Reagan’s ‘states’ rights’ speech … was [his] first public address after the Republican National Convention …. The speech drew attention for his use of the phrase ‘states’ rights’ at the Neshoba County Fair, just a few miles from Philadelphia, Mississippi, a town associated with the 1964 murders of civil rights workers. …

    “Given the history of Philadelphia, and Reagan’s use of the words ‘states’ rights’, often interpreted as a desire to return to pre-Civil Rights laws regarding segregation, many felt that Reagan … was using this location and these words as a cynical appeal to the white racist vote. Columnist Bob Herbert of The New York Times wrote, ‘Everybody watching the 1980 campaign knew what Reagan was signaling at the fair’, and that it ‘was understood that … [he was] saying that when it comes down to you and the blacks, we’re with you”.

    “Paul Krugman … wrote that this was just one of many examples of ‘Reagan’s tacit race-baiting in the historical record.’

    “Eulogizing on Reagan’s death Washington Post columnist William Raspberry noted of the incident. ‘ … Countless observers have noted that Reagan took the Republican Party … to the ascendancy it now enjoys. The essence of that transformation, we shouldn’t forget, is the party’s successful wooing of the race-exploiting … Dixiecrats. And Reagan’s Philadelphia appearance was an important bouquet in that courtship.'” — Wikipedia

    The Associated Press reports that prosecutors have dropped charges against 1 of the 5 Blackwater security guards who killed 17 Iraqis in 2007, although charges could be refiled at a later date. Legal arguments have revolved around immunity deals offered by investigators to the accused guards. The Blackwater guards attacked, among others, fleeing women and children; and even allegedly launched a grenade into a nearby girls’ school.

    Trivia: Terry Norman, an armed FBI informant who for years was thought to have fired the first shots at Kent State (but the FBI later claimed he didn’t), now owns a janitorial firm in Maine.

    They’re At It Again

    If you see “Pray for Obama Psalm 109:8″ on a bumper sticker or T-shirt, here’s what the person displaying it is praying for:

    “Verse 8: May his days be few; may another take his place of leadership.

    “Verse 9: May his children be fatherless and his wife a widow.

    “Verse 10: May his children be wandering beggars; may they be driven from their ruined homes.

    “Verse 11: May a creditor seize all he has; may strangers plunder the fruits of his labor.

    “Verse 12: May no one extend kindness to him or take pity on his fatherless children.

    “Verse 13: May his descendants be cut off, their names blotted out from the next generation.”

    News reports suggest Harry Reid has the 60 votes needed to move health care reform to the Senate floor.

    Landrieu of Louisiana, Nelson of Nebraska, and Lincoln of Arkansas are the last three holdouts among 58 Democrats and 2 independents.

    Nelson and Lincoln have both signaled they will vote for the bill. Landrieu said her vote will be influenced by advice from Bill Clinton, who told senators not to hold out for a perfect bill.

    Meanwhile, Republicans will go down in history for voting against affordable health care for all Americans. Why would anyone vote for those people?

    Sneaky Ways Airlines Rip You Off

    1. U.S. Airways and United have started charging passengers an extra $5 to pay baggage fees at the airport instead of online.

    2. If your $15 bag is overweight, the airline will charge you $25 for a second bag, but you’ll pay anywhere from $39 to $175 for the privilege of jamming the extra weight into the $15 bag.

    3. Several airlines have set up curbside baggage check-in. They’ll charge you an extra $2 if you opt to use it, instead of walking inside the terminal a few steps away.

    4. Booking your flight over the phone instead of online will cost you $25.

    5. Requesting a specific seat in coach class will cost you $5 to $15 depending on the airline.

    6. Requesting a paper ticket will cost you $50 to $70.

    7. Changing your departure date after buying your ticket will cost you $75 to $150.

    8. Redeeming frequent flier miles less than 3 days to 22 days (depending on airline) before your flight will cost you $75 to $100.

    9. If you don’t bring your own headphones, the airline will rent you a pair for $2.

    10. Airlines change ticket prices several times a day, so don’t book at the first price you see, if it isn’t a good deal.

    It is my pleasure, actually my sworn duty, to give you the Obam-Mao Approval Ratings…from the most accurate poll in AMERICA!

    Saturday, November 21, 2009

    The Rasmussen Reports daily Presidential Tracking Poll for Saturday shows that 27% of the nation’s voters Strongly Approve of the way that Barack Obama is performing his role as President. Forty percent (40%) Strongly Disapprove giving Obama a Presidential Approval Index rating of -13.

    Voters continue to see deficit reduction as the top Presidential priority with health care reform a distant second.

    BULLSHITTIUM Alert still active for Roger Dumb Bunny. He reads too much from WikiPedia and the RINO David Brooks. Anyone so loved by the NY Times is a RINO.

    Only 16 years later, in 1980, Saint Ronnie launched his presidential campaign in Neshoba County with a speech that referred to “states rights.”

    Since the Iowa Caucuses and the New Hapshire primaries were before his Neshoba County visit… Notice Puddy used WikiPedia correctly? What a useless tool you are Roger Dumb Bunny. Did you rob someone of their brain? You chose the wrong “victim”. HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA

    Moron: It was on November 21, 1976 when Ronald Wilson Reagan announced his decision and candidacy to run again for president of the United States. “As I had in 1976, I told my campaign staff that I intended to abide by the Eleventh Commandment: I’d attack only Democrats while trying to let the voters know where I stood.””

    And you Republicans think Reagan was one of America’s greatest presidents? A guy who started his presidential campaign by paying homage to the murderers of those 3 civil rights workers?

    Irrelevant. Just proved your original premise was a BIG TIME LIE!

    Stay stupid Roger Dumb Bunny. You’re quite good at it.

    Hey Roger find this “It was a cold and cloudy day on January 20, 1981, and Washington was preparing for the inauguration of Ronald Reagan. President Carter, involved all night in last minute negotiations to free the hostages in Iran, was ashen and visibly exhausted. Reagan, at nearly 70, the oldest man to take the presidential oath, looked like a movie star. Watching the sun break through the clouds as Reagan stepped up to take the oath of office, Americans could already see that a new kind of leadership was coming.” PuddyEmphasis

    Steve–
    Here is a story you might appreciate. I just got back from our Saturday Morning Men’s Breakfast & Fellowship group. One of the guys is a veterinarian in the Cattle Industry. He was down in the Peteluma area working last week. One of his clients took him out for a nice dinner and then to a “Vodka Tasting Room”.
    Have you ever been to one of these? I’d never even heard of one before. Anyway, the deal is you not only drink Vodka at 29 degrees, but you dress up in fur coats and Russian hats and drink the 29 degree Vodka in a room that is 29 degrees. The owner claims it adds to the taste. They serve the finest Vodka’s.

    When the bill came, my buddy looked at the Bill and told the owner “You know, I live in Montana….I could buy a couple bottles of Vodka for 1/10 of what you charge and drink it in my garage and have the same taste experience!”
    He said the guy looked shell-shocked and didn’t know what to say.
    Funny stuff.

    Balzano said he and seven other executive officers of the local SEIU stepped down.
     
    Why did they step down?
     
    Because they wanted to sue the city becauase a 17 year old boy scout did 200 hours of volunteering to clean a trail to become an eagle scout.
     
    A job the union boss says should have been given to union employees. If union thugs wanted to volunteer and clean it up, why didn’t they? Oh yeah, it’s not about volunteering and helping the community, it';s about union jobs and power.
     

    On Monday, during his Fox News television show, conservative talk show host Glenn Beck pointed to the events in Allentown as another example of the SEIU using bullying tactics to protect jobs at the expense of others.

    “Even the Boy Scouts aren’t safe from SEIU’s thuggery,” Beck quipped.

     
    Beck got involved, made the story public.
     
    What choice did the head of the local union have but to resign once glen beck was on the case.

    Great catch.
    The SEIU extorts money from members for political purposes. You can understand why members are afraid to stand up to the thuggery. We desperately need a law that requires positive affirmation from a member for any portion of the dues to be used for political purposes. Conservative Union Members are being extorted and “chilled” from speaking out due to an ever-present implied threat based on the Union’s thuggish actions like this.

    If the SEIU will attack Boy Scouts, what will they do to members who question them??

    And Obama’s only at 27% Strong Approval…which means his other Approval #’s are vulnerable.
    Versus 40% Strong Disapproval.

    I can read the tea leaves. They spell out the words SCREWED UP BAD. The KLOWNS merely close their eyes and put on pressure to dig a deeper hole. The Health Care Bill effective date means the R’s have time to regain power and reverse it. So the KLOWNS are trying to sneak thru something onerous and watched all their political capital squandered away for no good reason. They should have taken their time, adopted something simple and incrementally grabbed more over time rather than go for the whole enchilada. Arrogant.

    That man-made-global-warming theory, that once data didn’t back it up was changed to climate change theory is due for another name change to match the data.
     
    HOAX
     
    1.

    Hackers broke into the electronic files of one of the world’s foremost climate research centers this week and posted an array of e-mails in which prominent scientists engaged in a blunt discussion of global warming research and disparaged climate-change skeptics.

    In one e-mail from 1999, the center’s director, Phil Jones, alludes to one of Mann’s articles in the journal Nature and writes, “I’ve just completed Mike’s Nature trick of adding in the real temps to each series for the last 20 years (i.e., from 1981 onwards) and from 1961 for Keith’s to hide the decline.”

    Nothing like hiding the decline of global temperatures, how else can the argument be made the planet is warming if they don’t make the data match the rhetoric.
     
    The liberal ny times-

    The e-mail messages, attributed to prominent American and British climate researchers, include discussions of scientific data and whether it should be released, exchanges about how best to combat the arguments of skeptics, and casual comments — in some cases derisive — about specific people known for their skeptical views. Drafts of scientific papers and a photo collage that portrays climate skeptics on an ice floe were also among the hacked data, some of which dates back 13 years.

    In one e-mail exchange, a scientist writes of using a statistical “trick” in a chart illustrating a recent sharp warming trend. In another, a scientist refers to climate skeptics as “idiots.”

    The fact is that we can’t account for the lack of warming at the moment and it is a travesty that we can’t,” Dr. Trenberth wrote.

    Phil Jones, a longtime climate researcher at the East Anglia Climate Research Unit, said he had used a “trick” employed by another scientist, Michael Mann, to “hide the decline” in temperatures.

     
    baltimore sun

    Climate-change deniers will make much of the hacked emails at the University of Anglia showing global-warming researchers deprecating their opponents and expressing frustration that data show planetary temperatures temporarily declining.

    Can you believe those man-made-global-warming deniers using the data from those that believe in man-made-global-warming as their proof.
     
    Best line from the baltimore sun-
    The effects of global warming are uncertain, but they represent a huge risk to future generations.
    The effects are uncertain, but the risk is huge. Only in the liberal mind would that make sense.
     
    I wonder if dan rather excuse of fake-but-real is going to be used by the man-made-global-warming crowd.

    Obama now pleading for money to fight Sarah Palin
     
    oba-mao is president, palin is a private citizen.
     
    What is the oba-mao afraid of?
     

    Never shy about $eeking money, Democratic President Obama’s Organizing for America is now using the threat of Republican Sarah Palin as an opportunity to acquire more.

    It has just sent an e-mail out to its millions of supporters today pleading for urgent donations to fight the mother of five, now on her heavily-publicized, cross-country book promotion bus tour. She holds no political office currently; in fact, she’s among America’s unemployed, though doing quite well financially.

    Although the Democratic National Committee dismisses Palin as an ignorant non-factor, it’s invested way more time and effort this week attacking Palin than selling Obama, who was on another overseas publicity trip of his own.

      
    I was wondering why we didn’t hear more about oba-mao and his successes in china.

    A line from a John Ford movie I saw last night, “How Green was my Valley”, as the Wales coal mine owners kept lowering the worker’s wages,

    “Unions are the work of Satan!”

    Wages going down, workers dying, widows crying, children working the mines, Satanic unions despised by workers as organizing would anger the mine owners. What’s not for a Republican to love?

    Oscar winner for best movie. Four stars. The lovely Maureen O’Hara. A stoic Walter Pidgeon. A master of his craft, John Ford, at his best. Stunning cinematography. A great Welch music soundtrack. I heartily recommend this one for you guys.

    Send them the raw data as is, by reconstructing it from GHCN. How could this be done? Replace all stations where the WMO ID agrees with what is in GHCN. This would be the raw data, but it would annoy them.
      
    Now we see why the man-made-global-warming believers kept saying the debate was over. Factsdon’tsupporttheirposition.

    Here’s something worth pondering from Rick Warren:


    People ask me, “What is the purpose of life?” And I respond: In a nutshell, life is preparation for eternity. We were not made to last forever, and God wants us to be with Him in Heaven. One day my heart is going to stop, and that will be the end of my body but not the end of me. I may live 60 to 100 years on earth, but I am going to spend trillions of years in eternity. This is the warm-up act – the dress rehearsal. God wants us to practice on earth what we will do forever in eternity.
    We were made by God and for God, and until you figure that out, life isn’t going to make sense. Life is a series of problems: Either you are in one now, you’re just coming out of one, or you’re getting ready to go into another one. The reason for this is that God is more interested in your character than your comfort. God is more interested in making your life holy than He is in making your life happy. We can be reasonably happy here on earth, but that’s not the goal of life. The goal is to grow in character, in Christ likeness.

    This past year has been the greatest year of my life but also the toughest, with my wife, Kay, getting cancer. I used to think that life was hills and valleys – you go through a dark time, then you go to the mountaintop, back and forth. I don’t believe that anymore.
    Rather than life being hills and valleys, I believe that it’s kind of like two rails on a railroad track, and at all times you have something good and something bad in your life.
    No matter how good things are in your life, there is always something bad that needs to be worked on. And no matter how bad things are in your life, there is always something good you can thank God for.

    Not bad, ehh?

    Maybe sarah palin isn’t that bright…
     
    From slate.com, a quote from palins book.
     
    “The apartment was small, with slanting floors and irregular heat and a buzzer downstairs that didn’t work, so that visitors had to call ahead from a pay phone at the corner gas station, where a black Doberman the size of a wolf paced through the night in vigilant patrol, its jaws clamped around an empty beer bottle.”
      
    They rip her apart.
     
    Doberman was always carrying around an empty beer bottle, because Sarah and Todd had trained it to get rid of all their beer bottles
     
    I remember well the breathless, run-on sentences of my High School days…:)
      
    That sentence by Sarah Palin could be entered into the annual Bulwer-Lytton bad writing contest.
     
    Up until-
     
    I probably should have mentioned that the sentence quoted above was not written by Sarah Palin. It’s taken from the first paragraph of Dreams from My Father, written by Barack Obama.
     
    Ouch.

    Someone asked the edit to be made…
     
    Is the oba-mao really this skin-thinned that he has to ask edits to be made to rap videos?
     

    A recently released music video for “Popular Demand” by the Clipse featured the awning of the infamous Obama Fried Chicken joint in Brownsville, Brooklyn. But in comparing versions of the video airing on MTV and elsewhere, it looks like the TV channel completely erased the restaurant’s name from the awning in the video’s opening shot.

    Update: A spokesperson for MTV says, “MTV did not ask for that edit to be made. Someone else other than MTV made the request.” When asked who that may have been, they simply said, “We have no idea.”

      
    If not mtv, who?

    From the Christian Science Monitor.

    For researchers directly involved in the email exchanges, such emails really present a picture of the lengths scientists go to ensure the high quality of the science. The exchanges are shocking to some of the rest of us only because they open a window on an enterprise alien to most people. The debates are public in the sense that they crop up in scientific journals.

    Nothing in the package appears to overturn the general idea — arrived at via many lines of evidence — that the CO2 humans have been pumping into the atmosphere is warming the planet, nor does anything bolster the notion some put forward of a hoax on the part of climate scientists.

    Foolish Dumb Bunny@64,

    It was you who said Reagan started his presidential campaign on Aug 1980. It was Puddy who proved Reagan started his 1980 campaign November 1976. Then Puddy proved Mmmm Mmmm Mmmm in 2007.

    It was Roger Dumb Bunny, whe he realized his foolish attempt at a post was Destroyed and then he runs away claiming “victory”.

    What a tool!Good try but again Puddy delivers the SMACKDOWN!

    There you go again attempting to distract from the larger issue. Which, just in case you weren’t paying attention, is Ronald Reagan as the 1980 GOP nominee, kicked off his campaign with a speech about states rights in a town that had witnessed one of the uglier incidents of the Civil Rights struggle only 16 years earlier.

    That wasn’t a race-bating dog whistle, it was a fucking air raid siren.

    @70
    To quote the Rabbit:

    “Ronald Reagan’s ’states’ rights’ speech … was [his] first public address after the Republican National Convention …. The speech drew attention for his use of the phrase ’states’ rights’ at the Neshoba County Fair, just a few miles from Philadelphia, Mississippi, a town associated with the 1964 murders of civil rights workers. …

    Hmm … looks to me like he claimed the same thing I did. Ooops, puddinghead making shit up again.

    November 21, 1976 is when he launched his 1980 presidential campaign. Remember Chris, Dumb Bunny is the lawyer. When he conflates the facts Puddy will identify it!
