Lemons to lemonade

Some readers may recall the July incident in which the words “white power” were scratched onto a car belonging to a Clark County couple who support Barack Obama for president.

This morning The Columbian did a follow-up story, and since some of HA’s readers chipped in towards a new paint job I wanted to alert readers here.

The Vancouver couple have put Barack Obama bumper stickers all over their car to cover up the racist vandalism until the they can get the 1993 Plymouth Sundance into the shop for a paint job.

As it turns out, the distraction has become quite popular around town. “People holler ‘yay’ and give a thumbs-up,” Karen Wastradowski said.

In the meantime, the bill to clean the vandalism has been picked up by dozens of Clark County residents, who pledged monetary support after reading about it in the newspaper last month.

The car soon will undergo a paint job at Todd’s Auto Body Shop, and the cost of labor will be on the shop.

Proving once again that there are plenty of decent folks out there. If I ever need auto body work you can bet I’ll be contacting that shop.

So thanks to everyone who chipped in, and a special thanks to former Clark County Democratic chair Chris Bassett for setting the fund up and managing it.

    Are You Better Off Than You Were 8 Years Ago?

    Not if you’re a typical American worker. A study released today by the Rutgers School of Management and Labor Relations says the median weekly earnings for American workers, adjusted for inflation, haven’t risen at all in the last 8 years. So much for the bullshit claims that a Republican trickle-down tide lifts all boats.

    Even worse, the number of American workers who are unemployed, forced to work only part-time, or have given up trying to find work is in double digits. The number of un- and under-employed is up 25% since last year, and new claims for unemployment insurance remain above 400,000, a traditional sign of a slowing economy. So much for Republicans’ bullshit claims that we’re not in a recession.

    Health care costs and consumer debt are both up, increasing financial pressures on ordinary American families.

    The federal minimum wage, after adjusting for inflation, is 6% lower than it was 10 years ago. The gap would be much greater than that if Democrats, after winning control of Congress in 2006, hadn’t shoved a minimum wage increase down a recalcitrant Republican president’s throat.

    Sources: Associated Press; the study used date from the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics.

    Why would anyone except the richest 2% vote Republican? You’re shooting yourself in the wallet if you do.

    Fun, fun, fun,

    “Our current governor who I mentioned at the last conference, the one we were hoping would get elected, Sarah Palin, did get elected . . . .and there was a lot of talk about her moving up. She was an AIP(Alaskan Independence Party) member before she got the job as mayor . . .”

    busdrivermike spews:

    That is the quote of the VP of The Alaska Independence Party.

    And what is AIP, you might wonder? From the AIP website:The Alaskan Independence Party is, according to their website, “no longer a fringe party.” Its views include:

    * A belief that “the vote for statehood was invalid because the people were not presented with the range of options available to them” and that “the federal government has since breached the contract for statehood on numerous occasions in over a dozen serious and substantial instances.”
    * A belief that there should be a vote on Alaskan secession.

    Palin Myths Debunked

    An Alaskan blogger, who knows her state’s governor well, debunks some popular misconceptions about Sarah Palin:

    First and foremost, she’s not the reformer her supporters make her out to be. Yes, Alaskan state politics is a cesspool of Republican corruption. Yes, a corrupt GOP governor was bounced out of office, and a corrupt GOP congressman is under federal investigation and a corrupt GOP senator is under federal indictment. But Palin had nothing to do with any of this. All of the “reform” work was done by the FBI and IRS.

    Secondly, Palin’s no political moderate. She’s as far right as they come. During the 2006 governor’s campaign, she said in a debate that she would not allow her own daughter to get an abortion if impregnated by a rapist. She opposes gay rights, supports teaching creationism in public schools, doesn’t believe climate change is real, and has no use for the Endangered Species Act or other environmental protections.

    Palin was not a “beauty queen.” She wasn’t “Miss Alaska” — she lost. She was “Miss Wasilla,” nothing else.

    On the subject of “executive experience,” by her own account, Palin isn’t in control of her own adminisration. She claims to know nothing about political pressures to fire her ex-brother-in-law from his state trooper job (even though taped phone conversations indicate otherwise).

    Our Alaskan blogger friend says, “Not everyone in Alaska loves her. Yes, she’s popular. She’s also coming on the tail of four years of one of the least popular governors in American history. All she had to do to be better-liked than Frank Murkowski was show up and not buy another jet.”

    There aren’t nude pictures of her on the Internet.

    And last, but not least, our blogger friend says: “She’s not a substitute for Hillary Clinton. In fact, apart from the biological similarities and a penchant for unfortunate hairdressing decisions, there’s not much they have in common. Universal health care, reproductive rights, environmental issues, fiscal policy … these are areas in which Clinton and Palin couldn’t be further apart. To anyone who’s so desperate to vote for a woman that Clinton and Palin are interchangeable — STOP VOTING WITH YOUR HORMONES AND READ A DAMN NEWSPAPER ALREADY. You’re killing me here. … (News flash: Not every female candidate is a GOOD candidate for women. Case in point: Would you vote for Phyllis Schlafly?)”

    4. It’s safe to say liberals donated cash toward repairing the car.

    5. It’s probably equally a safe bet that not one donation in any amount came from a wingnut or a Republican.

    @17 All 6 grades of it? You’d never know that from reading your asinine comments here.

    The fact is, puddinghead, the vast majority of Americans are not better off. And if the implication of your asinine comment is they should have gotten more education, sorry pal, but more Americans than ever before are college-educated. The problem isn’t the workers, you schmuck. They’re working longer hards and trying harder than ever before. Yet, they have less job security, lower wages, fewer health care and retirement benefits. Why? Those things are controlled by employers, not workers, dumbass. This outcome for workers is the product of the cheap labor conservative politics you fervently embrace.

    Well, I have news for you, mush-for-brains. You may be riding high now, but like everyone else, your job and income depend on customers. And when no one in this country has money to buy anything because they’ve all been reduced to third-world poverty by Republican economic policies, who will buy your goods and services?

    Whatever tit you’re sucking on, you’d better suck it while you can, because like the rest of us your days of economic prosperity are numbered.

    Roger Rabbit spews:

    Here is what employers expect of workers today:

    1. You must get extensive post-public-school education at your own expense, which usually entails going deeply into debt.

    2. You must work longer hours than workers in any other developed country.

    3. You must give all your energy and boundless loyalty to the company, but you must not expect promotions, raises, bonuses, or even continued employment in return.

    4. You cannot expect the company to honor its labor contracts, pension obligations, or other promises to its employees.

    5. You must not expect bonuses or pay increases if the company is successful; all the money available for incentives will go to the CEO, even though he’s already making 1,000 times as much as you.

    6. You should not expect supportive, respectful, or competent management. On the other hand, you will be expected to perform at a top level despite the bullies and slackers in the front office.

    Who in their right mind would accept employment terms like these? Add the fact workers have to bear all of their own work-related expenses, can’t tax-deduct any of them, and wages are taxed 3 times as much as passive investment income — and only a glutton for self-flagellation would do any work in this country.

    I don’t! I don’t commute to a job, punch a time clock, take orders from a boss, or do any work. I sleep until noon if I feel like it, spend 5 minutes a week flipping stocks, and get a 67% discount on my income taxes for not being productive. That’s the economic system created by our Republican friends. If they want to reduce America to a third-rate economic power, they couldn’t do it faster or better if that’s what they wanted! Which makes me think they do.

    @22 “If you notice Pelletizer isn’t pasting his links. Why is that Pelletizer?”

    Because Goldy’s new software doesn’t accept them, and if I insert a link the comment doesn’t post. Believe me, I’d be posting links to cute rabbit pictures if I could!

    Under the old format, Goldy could release comments from the spam filter, and while it might take a while they’d eventually post. His new spam filter vaporizes them.

    Consequently, I can’t use links in this blog anymore. I complained to Goldy about it, but he said it’s beyond his control and there’s nothing he can do.

    Not every HA user has this problem. In fact, most don’t. Goldy explained that “Roger Rabbit” is widely used by spammers, and his new spam software is pre-programmed to filter out any incoming “Roger Rabbit” messages with a link or attachment. Well, my mama named me “Roger Rabbit” and I’m not gonna go to court for a legal name change or turn into a fucking dog or a moose just because his software discriminates against rabbits.

    So here’s a suggestion for you, puddinghead: Instead of depending on me for research, how about reading a fucking newspaper once in a while?! Most of my sources are well-known mainstream publications, and you can pick them up as easily as I can.

    Alternatively, if you don’t like the protocol changes around here, either freeload on some other blog or … go fuck yourself.

    From Reuters:

    “The 17-year-old daughter of Republican vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin is pregnant, Palin said on Monday in an announcement intended to knock down rumors by liberal bloggers that Palin faked her own pregnancy to cover up for her child.

    Bristol Palin, one of Alaska Gov. Palin’s five children with her husband, Todd, is about five months pregnant and is going to keep the child and marry the father, the Palins said in a statement released by the campaign of Republican presidential candidate John McCain.”

    Or..she is two months pregnant..So, she is a two time mother at seventeen. Looks like the right wing found a poster girl for their abstinence policy.

  36. 44

    Roger Rabbit spews:

    @38 (continued) 15 seconds of googling produced a photo of Palin’s 16-year-old daughter with a conspicuous “baby bump” in her midsection.

    Sorry, puddy, I can’t link it so you’ll have to do your own googling.

    The underlying significance of this story is that Palin is an abstinence advocate, and her own 16-year-old daughter’s out-of-wedlock pregnancy undermines the argument that abstinence is effective to prevent unwanted pregnancies.

    But the real story here is that GOP vice presidential candidate Palin lied about her 16-year-old daughter’s pregnancy and the failure of the abstinence message within her own family. No doubt Palin did it to protect her daughter. No doubt Clinton lied about Monica to protect his daughter, too — but Republicans thought that was an impeachable offense. So here we have the GOP’s vice presidential candidate committing what Republicans consider an impeachable offense before she’s even nominated. What are they going to do about that?

    Answer: Be the flaming hypocrites they always are when one of theirs gets caught doing what they attack Democrats for doing.

We ask the media, respect our daughter and Levi’s privacy as has always been the tradition of children of candidates,” the statement concluded.”

    Like this joke John McCain made about Chelsea Clinton when she was 15:

    “Why is Chelsea Clinton so ugly?
    Because her father is Janet Reno.”

    Now let’s say these kids were born to a teen whose dad isn’t around and whose mother isn’t pulling down a governor’s salary. And let’s say the teen lives in a Republican-run country where abortions aren’t allowed and welfare doesn’t exist.

    Then what? Do the kids fucking starve?

    McCain’s veep selection is imploding so fast it makes your head spin. Maybe that was the idea. Possibly the GOP strategists figure their candidate’s only chance is if all the voters have vertigo by Election Day.

    Obviously this isn’t working out as McCain hoped. How did it get out of control so fast? Because McCain made an impulsive decision. Before choosing her as his running mate, he’d met her only twice, and talked to her only for 30 minutes. He made this decision with his gut, not his head.

    And that’s the point. If he becomes president, he will also make presidential decisions with his gut.

    Let’s go over the balance sheet so far.

    1. Palin was a small-town mayor until 20 months ago.

    2. She utterly lacks the experience that vice presidents (i.e., potential presidents) are expected to have.

    3. She’s not the reformer she claims to be; the FBI and IRS, not Palin, cleaned up GOP corruption in Alaska.

    4. Her teenage daughter’s double pregnancies blow Palin’s “family value” credentials to hell.

    5. The fact Palin lied about her daughter’s first pregnancy blows her credibility to hell.

    6. Puffing her as a “beauty queen” makes her look like a snake-oil peddler; she was no beauty queen, she lost the fucking beauty contest.

    7. Her association with an anti-America secessionist blows her patriotism credentials to hell.

    8. Her extremist agenda — “Guns, babies, and Jesus” — will send moderate swing voters running for cover … under the Democratic umbrella.

    9. The trooper scandal exposes Palin as a vengeful, lying politician who abuses power.

    10. The ultimate casualty will be the perception of John McCain’s judgment and decision making ability.

    Yup, it’s all blowing up fast in McCain’s face, and there’s nothing he can do except suck on it.

    “ENUMCLAW — Men from as far away as Wyoming were drawn by bestiality sites on the Internet to a farm near here, where they could participate in sex acts with horses and other animals.

    “That’s one of the many disturbing details Enumclaw detectives have unearthed since a 45-year-old Port Orchard man died this month from internal trauma after a horse had sexual intercourse with him on the Enumclaw-area farm.”

    Looks like the McCain campaign is laying everything on the line:

    “A senior McCain campaign official said the McCain camp was appalled that these rumors had not only been spread around liberal blog sites and partisan Democrats, but also were the subject of heightened interest from mainstream news media.

    “‘The despicable rumors that have been spread by liberal blogs, some even with Barack Obama’s name in them, is a real anchor around the Democratic ticket, pulling them down in the mud in a way that certainly juxtaposes themselves against their “campaign of change,”‘ a senior aide said.”

    (Quoted from Reuters under fair use.)

    Roger Rabbit Commentary: What happens if the “rumors” prove true? Is Palin willing to cooperate with DNA tests to verify that Trig is her baby? If not, why not? Her own staff says she never looked pregnant. Why is that?

    The short answer is, if it comes out that Palin lied and the baby is actually her daughter’s, the angry denials from the McCain camp will blow up on them big-time.

    McCain will look like John Edwards. And like Edwards, he’ll be finished politically.

    She hasn’t used it since 12/17/2006 and it appears to have been created at that time. Notice that the profile says she is 24, when she is actually only about 14.

    MySpace has a policy requiring users to be at least 13 years old to create a profile. Presumably, Willow was 12 at the time. So she LIED ABOUT HER AGE in order to get a MySpace profile.

    Clever lying? Willow has the potential to become a good REPUBLICAN!

    For a 12 year-old, it doesn’t look like “24” is a typo. Considering this, was the photo of her unidentified Mom intended to represent Willow? You know where this leads and it’s not a good place. Damn.

    ST. PAUL — Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin began building clout in her state’s political circles in part by serving as a director of an independent political group organized by the now embattled Alaska Sen. Ted Stevens.

    Palin’s name is listed on 2003 incorporation papers of the “Ted Stevens Excellence in Public Service, Inc.,” a 527 group that could raise unlimited funds from corporate donors. The group was designed to serve as a political boot camp for Republican women in the state. She served as one of three directors until June 2005, when her name was replaced on state filings.

    If you look at Willow’s friends who posted comments on there, all of them also lied about their ages in order to get MySpace profiles. So I assume everyone was around 12 when they created their profiles.

    Why doesn’t Willow have her own picture? It looks like a low-res thumbnail picture taken from her mother’s campaign website.

    The site COULD be fake. But it looks like some real friends of Willow’s posted comments on there. And if it were fake, it would be more obvious and more cruel. (For example, there are now TWO fake — and cruel — Bristol Palin MySpace pages, in addition to the earlier one which was probably real.)

    Roger Rabbit @ 126

    I think Willow Bristol was posing as 22 when she was 12. Basically, deducted 10 years from her date of birth. So now it says 24 when she is 14. It is common for kids 12 and under to lie about their date of birth on MySpace. Federal law and MySpace policy is designed to especially protect the privacy of children under 13 years of age.

    However, it could be alarming that Willow added only 10 years to her age. It is possible someone might actually believe (or claim to believe) the made-up age. It seems most children who lie about their age end up putting something totally ridiculous (like being 70 or 90 years old), so that no one believes them and so that they won’t be hit on by adults.
