I don’t know whether I’m coming or going. I just got back from Oregon yesterday afternoon, and I’m about to jump in the car and drive down to Long Beach for a couple days.

Anyway, Darryl did such an excellent job keeping HA running over the weekend that I’ve handed him the keys for another few days to supplement my anticipated meager postings. And just possibly, you might even see post or two from the mysterious “Blogger X”.

When your biggest idea is to add any exclaimation point to your name, I guess you really can’t expect to do that well in the race:

On the heels of her campaign’s first statewide television ad campaign, Democratic Senator Maria Cantwell’s poll numbers have improved for the first time in months. Cantwell now leads challenger Mike McGavick ® by 11 percentage points, 48% to 37%. That’s up from a four point lead in June.

Coming of age in the 1950’s, a time

the USSR. I eventually learned that it
became International Workers Day

“Share holders have very little say in CEO. pay The board of directors are mostly made up of good old boys friends of the CEO. It is a completely rigged game. And I think your probably know that .

But I could be wrong your propensity for ignorant statements seems to have no bounds”

So if shareholders have little say, why should someone who has no stake in company have more say than the shareholders?

I’m not sure why the left has such an obsession with CEO pay. The CEO of Walmart, H Lee Scott Jr, makes $5.3 million in salary and bonuses. His total compensation was $10.46 million in 2005. If he were to give up this entire amount and pass it onto the 1.6 million employees of Walmart they’d each get a check for $6.54, or about 40 minutes worth of effort at their average of $9.68 per hour wage.

http://www.forbes.com/lists/2006/12/TWC3.html

The left likes to tout Costco as paying a “fairer” wage to it’s employees, and also tout the CEO as being paid more in line with the workers. Here’s an example:

http://www.wakeupwalmart.com/news/20050706-lre.html

Yes, Sinegal has a low salary, but his total compensation for the same period was $4.25 million. If Sinegal’s compensation were spread to all of Costco’s 113,000 employees, they would receive, $376.10, or 19.36 hours of effort.

http://www.forbes.com/lists/2006/12/OAMI.html

So I guess Costo’s employees would benefit more by a cut in CEO compensation than Walmart’s. A little ironic isn’t?

At the sme time, the almost mythical military prowess of our favorite client state (Israel) has come up more than short as after weeks of intense fighting and a better than 10-1 kill ration of Lebanese to Israelis, the capacity of Hezbiollah to attack Israel with rockets not only remains undamaged but they have been able to fire record numbers in recent days. The capacity of non-state armed entities to wage war sucessfully, which we helped piot in Afghanistan, is a threat to the state system. And no one yet has an answer to this, least of all the bumbling Bushes backing unchecked Israeli state violence against the Lebanese government and Lebanese civilians.

And compared to Pinochet, or any number of other right wing murderers we actively supported or (as in the case of Pinochet), put in place of a rightfully elected government, you have to admit, Castro doesn’t seem that bad.

The only problem if Castro dies now is that we have perhaps the most incompetent President in foreign affairs we ever had, and he is deeply beholden to the right wing Cubans in Florida (who made a career in being wrong about Cuba when Bush was still ditching the National Guard to campaign for the GOP). It is almost guaranteed that Bush will do the wrong thing.

I think you wanted to speak sweetly of Castro (hey–we all know the liberal mantra “But they have free health care!”), but then got shocked back into reality when I reminded you of a few things about the horrible lack of freedom in Cuba. Don’t insult the poor people of Cuba by saying they really don’t have it so bad. THEY HAVE IT BAD.

Last month Represenatitive Reichart does everything possible to keep the public from knowing the President Bush is in his district raising money. Commentby JDB— 7/31/06@ 4:31 pm

Judging from all the money raised, this dispels the notion ONCE AND FOR ALL democraps are poor!

Moonbats: Today on KTTH The Center for Media and Public Affairs (CMPA), a nonpartisan research group, studied TV Network news.

A summary of CMPA’s findings of how ABC, CBS and NBC have depicted President Bush during his first five years in office:

2001 (all) 61% negative
2002 N/A
2003 69% negative
2004 63% negative
2005 79% negative
2006 76% negative

Of course after listening to negativity from liberal MSM people are going to be swayed in their judgments. It takes a steady determined mind to muddle through the liberal crap.

I expect the usual suspects to try and go negative on a NON PARTISAN GROUP, because the truth hurts!

Millions of died in the name of Marxism, communism, socialism, whatever. In order to espouse this theory, you must believe in the inherent weakness of the individual, and the superiority of the state or group. That’s why it has always been practiced by dictators and despots. And why death almost always follows. It is the only way to keep the masses from revolting. Commentby Janet S— 7/31/06@ 8:05 pm

Sounds to me like monnbattic liberalism practiced here on the GoldyBarfBag

So Mike @ 88, I’m confused about you lumping together “socialist/communist liberals” into one group, particularly when you suggest it is possible for one of them to also be a “neo-con.”

Could you please explain your terms? Who among Washington state elected officials who do you consider to be a socialist/communist liberal? How would you classify Gregoire? Brad Owen? Frank Chopp? Tim Sheldon?

Are you saying that to be a liberal is the same thing as being a socialist/communist? If so, what do you see are the key policies AT THE STATE LEVEL that would make someone a socialist/communist/liberal?

Are food stamps a “communist conspiracy”? What about mass transit? Zoning regulations? Restaurant health inspections?

These are not glib questions: I’m genuinely curious as to where you draw the lines between “good” guys and “bad” guys.

99. Green Thumb spews:

Mike, those were serious questions that deserve real answers. You’ve made a pretty strong, broad brush criticism. I’m asking you to define your terms. For example, do you believe that liberals are indistinguishable from socialists and communists?

If so, are you categorizing Gregoire as a communist?

100. Green Thumb spews:

Mike, I would think you’d have ready answers for such basic questions. Or were you just engaging in empty, schoolyard taunts?

Thumb,

I don’t think MWS understands really those terms. He probably read somewhere the mostly empty conservative characterizations of liberals as socialists/communists/Maoists (Mike “Savage”)/etc. A little bit of reading into the cultural history of theearly twentieth century might show the communist allegation to have been at least somewhat true at that time amongst a certain part of the population (artists and intellectuals of the 1920s come to mind instantly, as Marxist communism was given greater credence by many such individuals in the era before Stalin). But I suspect that MWS is just throwing rhetorical spaghetti at the wall, and hoping that something might stick.

Mike at 90:

I don’t know anything about this group, so I don’t know if they are non-partison or not. I haven’t checked out the link (I’m a bit busy today0. But two things spring to mind from your post:

1. You said the survey was of MSM Network News (i.e., ABC, CBS, NBC, presumably). Does this exclude cable TV news channels, such as CNN and FOX news? If so, I would expect the results to be quite different if FOX news was included.

2. Why is 2002 excluded? Of course, there may be a good (impartial) reason, but since that was the year following the 9/11 attacks and the “rally around the President” effect, I would expect figures for that year to be higher.

3. Of course, a “negative” news story is not necessarily evidence of bias. It could be that Bush & Co. just screw up at least 60% to 75% of the time, and the reporting accurately reflected that fact. It can be just as biased for a news outlet to falsly emphasize favorable news (i.e., FOX News).

When you follow the money, to no great surprise one finds that virtually all of CMPA’s money comes from the following:

John M. Olin Foundation
Scaife Foundations
Smith Richardson Foundation

Not exactly a recipe for “non-partisan” media research.

More Iraqis are being killed in a day in Iraq than Lebanon. That place is blowing up and our shift of a few thousand hard-working soldiers WHO DESERVED TO GO HOME INSTEAD AS PLANNED into Baghdad isn’t going to stop the government-sponsored civil war that is being fought there. Things have gone from bad to worse to horrendous, and all you can do is stick your fingers in your ears and shout “islamofascist” as loud as you can to block out the possibility that you will have to acknowledge the MISERABLE FAILURE of Shrub’s invasion and occupation of Iraq and the Amercian troops who have to DIE every day while the situation deteriorates and the GOP does NOTHING to bring them back. Good job.

Hey moonbats back on-line. I write and spit out innuendoes just like you all do. If you have a problem with that go to Hellen Waite.

Socialism – Where I come from it’s a political theory advocating state ownership of industries. Just like you moonbats espouse. You all hate capitalism. It’s also a public ownership system for the express means of wealth distribution. Why moonbats love the government solutions to everything bad. Just throw more money at it!

Where communism is a form of socialism that abolishes private ownership. You all want the state to own everything. Like that stupid Supreme Court decision delivered by the moonbat members that says a city can take your private property to build condos or other money making activities whenever it sees fit.

Look up http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Socialism

Now what is Nazism – national socialism, a form of socialism featuring expansionism where we get free things like the proposed Hilary-care plan of 1993. It would have taken a lot of money to afford Hilary-care.
