    Conservatives are afraid to admit that President Obama’s comment about the Cambridge police department may have been justified. According to Wikipedia,

    “Jon Shane, who spent 17 years as a police officer in Newark, New Jersey and is now a professor of criminal justice at John Jay College of Criminal Justice who specializes in police policy and practice, told TIME magazine that, had he been the responding officer, he would not have arrested Gates after identifying him. He described Gates’s behavior as ‘contempt of cop’ which officers are supposed to handle as a first amendment right under the U.S. Constitution. … Eugene O’Donnell, a professor of law and police studies at John Jay College, told the TIME reporter that disorderly conduct is ‘probably the most abused statute in America.'”

    In short, the cops’ conduct is, at the very least, debatable. To what extent race enters is also debatable, but even if one accepts the (iffy) assumption that Professor Gates’ race had nothing to do with the officer’s actions, making sarcastic remarks to a police officer simply isn’t an arrestable offense in this country. In short, a pretty good case can be made that this was, in fact, a stupid arrest.

    The racial atttacks on the presdient by the Right are incrasing in both freuency and intensity. I expect to see more white-on-black (or -brown) hate crimes as a result.

    The bigger picture, it seems to me, is that what we’re going to see over the two Obama terms is that it will be just like Clinton–the Right will attack NON-STOP and will manufacture outrage over any thing that happens during his term. With Clinton, it went on and on, and on and on, non-stop for eight years (as Clinton was easily re-elected against the extremely weak Republican field–much like now).

    ALl I’m saying is, be ready. It won’t stop, they won’t stfu, and it’s going to keep on for seven and a half more years. They have people in the press (Lou Dobbs is a good example) who will carry their vile water for them.

    If the Republicans had a one-vote majority in the House they’d be impeaching Obama right now!

    You should take a course or two in both statistics and logic. Correlation proves only correlation, not causation. Perhaps both characteristics stem from some other cause or causes that you are not smart enough to think of (surely that could not be!). Higher poverty, perhaps? People who are out of work or are poor surely see Democratic governance as preferable to the “let ‘em die!” Republicans.

    I’m a Democrat, but that won’t stop me from calling bullshit on my fellow Democrats who, through their bashing of Republicans, seem to be suggesting that by electing Democrats, things will be better; their lives will be better. That’s just not true.

In fact, if any of you have studied political science, like I have, you’d have learned that on the political spectrum of all the world’s political parties, US Democrats and Republicans are so close together that others in the world consider any attempt at distinguishing the two is … brb … international business call.

    Republicans like health care just the way it is! They don’t want the 47 million working poor who lack insurance to get medical care. They don’t want to protect consumers who paid good money for health insurance from arbitrary denials, hidden fine print, nonrenewals, and soaring copays and deductibles. And, above all, they OPPOSE bankruptcy relief for people hit with crushing medical debts! So, if you enjoy being screwed out of your life savings by greedy for-profit insurance companies whose executives get paid millions a year for dreaming up ingenious new ways to rob you — vote Republican!!

I could supply a list, and I think Roger Rabbit has one at the ready. Little things like rural electrification, the Family and Medical Leave Act, Social Security, the Civil Rights Act, Medicare, and so on.

    Republicans Support Crime

    The White House announced today that distressed Washington communities will receive $18 million of federal stimulus funds to hire cops.

    When Bill Clinton was president he used federal money to put 100,000 more cops on America’s streets.

    When George W. Bush was president he yanked the funding and pulled cops off the streets to give tax breaks to billionaires. Not only that, after 9/11, he reassigned 2,200 FBI agents to anti-terrorism duties and didn’t replace them; as a result, bank robberies, white collar crimes, and fraud soared.

    Republicans like crime. After all, they commit most of it. If you want less policing and a freer hand for criminals — vote Republican.

    RR @ 1: Agreed. Also:

    Years ago, I spoke with a public prosecutor about an incident where several black women were refused service at the Denny’s by SeaTac airport, and were told to leave. When they protested that excluding them from service because of their race was illegal, they were arrested by off-duty sheriff’s deputies serving as security for the restaurant, on charges of trespass and creating a public disturbance.

    The prosecutor (who was black) explained that the manager mistakenly believed them to be prostitutes, and since so many prostitutes working that section of the highway were black, he argued it was a reasonable assumption.

    But the prosecutor also admitted that the entire arrest was probably an example of “unofficial policy”. The police would probably have settled for making the women leave, until they threatened to file a complaint.

    The rumor being circulated in the police locker rooms at the time was that if an officer thinks there is going to be a complaint filed against them, their best defensive is an aggressive offense. They believe they should go ahead and arrest the person for “creating a public disturbance”, or some similar offense. This allows the officer to get his story out first in the form of the official arrest report, make to make it look like the defendant is merely filing the complaint in retaliation for the arrest, and also to something of value to “trade” in return for dropping the complaint.

    In that case it worked: the gals accepted an offer to drop the charges in return for agreeing not to pursue complaints against the deputies, the county, or the restaurant. The threat of a potential criminal conviction on your record is a powerful tool in the police aresnal.

Thirty-nine percent (39%) Strongly Disapprove giving Obama a Presidential Approval Index rating of -10. The President’s Approval Index rating is down four points over the past week and 11 points over the past month.

    Just 23% believe health care costs will go down if health care reform is passed. Most (53%) expect prices would rise and 50% expect the quality of care would decline.

But those who have a very unfavorable opinion of Pelosi overwhelm those who regard her very favorably – by a five-to-one margin – 45% to nine percent (9%).

    Newest Inductee Into GOP Hall Of Shame

    “NASHVILLE, Tenn. (July 29) — A Tennessee lawmaker resigned from the state Senate on Tuesday after his extramarital affair with a 22-year-old intern was revealed by an investigation into an extortion case. ‘Due to recent events, I have decided to … resign my Senate seat …,’ Republican Sen. Paul Stanley wrote in his resignation letter. …

    “Stanley … sponsored … measures to ban gay couples from adopting children [and opposed]funding for Planned Parenthood because he said unmarried people should not have sex.”

    [Quoted from Associated Press under fair use.]

The answer may be that the birther phenomenon is a mutation of a political virus called incoherence. Incoherence … killed the Whigs … it killed the Klan and the American communists. The birther mutation looks to erase what remains of the GOP’s credibility with the electorate, already at an all-time low and still sinking to third- and fourth-party numbers, if there were a third or a fourth party. … The party, having lost its principles, its confidence, its courage, and then having lost an election, now experiences what it is to lose its mind, too, while it slips into the ash heap with other novelties.”

It’s bad form, according to Solomon, because no student is compelled to read Obama’s book and because his book is “free.”

    Common books are not free. Taxpayers are compelled to buy them. Then the books (Obama’s bio is the latest in a series of four common books that run the gamut of diversity from far left to farther left) are “given” away in a benevolent gesture — paid for with other people’s money — to build bonds of leftist solidarity.

    Solomon asserts that Obama’s … novel (surely calling his bio a novel is more demeaning than equating its bulk purchase with national socialist postage) is apolitical. Not so. Every dollar and dime of royalties to the book’s leftist author is a political dollar and a political dime.

    To repeat: nobody on campus is compelled to read Obama’s book, even if it’s assigned reading. But somebody was compelled to buy the book by the truckload and to enrich its politically partisan author. It’s not like being forced to lick Obama and to stick him on a letter, but it’s close.

    …that it’s bad form to equate UW’s compelled common-book bulk puchase of Barack Obama’s “novel” with the compelled purchase of Third Reich postage stamps. It’s bad form, according to Solomon, because no student is compelled to read Obama’s book and because his book is “free.”

    No, it’s bad form to equate the president with a Nazi. Or to equate the UW with the Nazis. Because outside of wingnut-land, these things do not equate.

    Common books are not free. Taxpayers are compelled to buy them.

    Do you know how the University of Washington is funded? It is not completely tax funded. Did you know that? Oh, but you’re Republican, of course you do not.

    Then the books (Obama’s bio is the latest in a series of four common books that run the gamut of diversity from far left to farther left) are “given” away in a benevolent gesture — paid for with other people’s money — to build bonds of leftist solidarity.

    Or, you have no idea what the selection process was and are pulling this out of your ass.

    But somebody was compelled to buy the book by the truckload and to enrich its politically partisan author.

    You mean some employee of the U whose jobs it is to make purchases was “compelled” to buy the book? I thought that was just called doing your job.

    It’s not like being forced to lick Obama and to stick him on a letter, but it’s close.

    So it’s OK for YOU to call Obama a Nazi stamp, or something. It’s so confusing talking to people who take a metaphor and then forget what they were comparing.

    Oh, and for you: UW funding (PDF)

    In FY2009, the UW received approximately $410 million from the state General Fund and $295 million from tuition and fees. Your probably can’t do the math, so that is 58% public funding.

    Next FY the UW those numbers will be $320 million and $330 million, respectively. 49% public funding.

    So Obama’s books were bought with the private dollars, and you can’t complain, right?

    Obama is very popular, though not as popular as when he was inaugurated. This is actually normal. Bush couldn’t break 50% approval in his first year (before 9/11) as I recall.

    But Obama is comfortably over that mark. If you cut off his top and bottom ratings as outliers, he is between 54% and 57% job approval in July 2009.

    His favorability ratings (how much people like him)are even higher: 61% in July 2009

    Look at the Poll numbers dimwit..the vast majority, including many Democrats, agree with me.

    Nope. Wrong. Trust not there? Political capital “squandered?” Did I mention the results for the question:

    Here’s Solomon’s article, Dad, from yesterday’s Daily. You certainly are, um, free to accept or reject my assertion about Solomon’s assertion. In fact, since you’re high on facts, let’s choose the Solomonic assertion solution: cut in half, rinse, repeat.

    Nobody at the Daily equated the president to a Nazi, aside from equating President B-U-S(wastika)-H to Hitler. But that was long long ago and far far away. We’re all liberal now, so it’s bad form to suggest that our president is a totalitarian dictator.

    Somebody at the Daily did assert or imply or suggest that pulling four of four UW common books from the far left or the extreme left was perhaps fascistic, particularly since the students for whom those books were bought were not free to choose alternate gifts. Common books: left, all left, nothing but the left. … Isn’t it risible that some leftists are “pro-choice.”

    Funds are fungible, Dad. Every school boy knows that. Although every dollar and dime of royalties from the compelled purchase of Obama’s book became a leftist dollar and dime, you’re probably correct that invoices were not necessarily paid with dollars extorted from unwilling taxpayers. Maybe some taxpayers were willing to propagandize young students. Maybe somebody dipped into UW’s bloated endowment. Maybe overpaid Emmert donated a few bucks from his golden parachute. But the bottom line is the bottom line: thousands of copies of Obamas book and of three books even farther to the left were bought in a no-choice propagandizing manner that reminded the Daily’s token conservative of national socialists forcing citizens to buy national socialist postage so Nazis would get kick-backs from no-choice bulk purchases.

    Hope this helps you get past your crippling confusion. If you have better information about UW’s bulk-buy cost accounting, or about selfless academic bureaucrats selflessly doing the tough job of enriching left-wingers, please please share.

    And each time he was helped to those firsts by folks a little to the right of the dial – many Republican voters crossed lines to support him for the Oval Office – many scared to death of an embarrassing know-nothing like Sarah being one-heartbeat away from the big chair. In the case of Harvard, he reached out to staunch Federalist Society types and won their confidence.

    Unlike FDR , it may pain Barack a bit that he has won your hate (all he had to do to get that meager bauble was to win). Hate is not a welcome emotion to the President. But he’ll soldier on just the same. And we who voted for him will stand with him every step of the way to sideline those who prefer to dwell in fear.

    In 6 months, O-blah-blah, Pelosi & Reid have blown all their Political Capital with their inexperience, shrillness etc. Blaming Bush has worn thin.


    And how many years did you guys try to blame Pres. Clinton for all your failures???

    But, keep shilling what you’re shilling because you’re helping America realize why it shouldn’t vote for Republicans.

    See, Americans aren’t sooooooooo stupid as to believe that the problems we face were created by Pres. Obama or Democrats. Furthermore, the majority of Americans don’t believe in ‘get rich’ schemes. That’s why they understand Pres. Obama cannot fix the worst financial disaster since the Great Depression (another Republican caused disaster BTW) in merely a few months.

    Oh sure, there are numbskulls like yourself who believe in get rich schemes, you fools buy them all the time.

    One last bit, you’re not an active stock trader either. You’re foolish comments regarding trading styles, methodologies, capital gains tax, having a broker who only takes clients whose net worth is $5 million or greater, yet you take stock advice off HA blog is 100% laughable.

    No one, and I mean NO ONE who has $5 million+ portfolio is going to bring a “hot stock tip” from a “Liberal” blog to their broker to “consider.”

    Then, you never did produce your trade slips.

    What a looooooooooser you are.

    Now I know why you moved to Montana. The Interior West, Mid West and Deep South are for idiots who cannot AFFORD to live in nice places. The “retard ratio” explains why:

    A) They vote predominately Republican
    B) Are poor. Stupid people cannot be high earners.

    You are the typical LEFTIST PINHEAD who has wonderful ideas…but is too gutless to pull the trigger.
    Progressives like to intellectualize….YAWN!!

    It takes courage to invest capital.
    Get some balls GBS.
    Keep playing with your l’il teeny investments.

    Such bullshit! I’m still waiting for Mr. Klynical to send Goldy his trade confirmations. Goldy’s had mine for a few months now but Mr. Klynical, fucked up in the head liar that he is, has been a no-show.

    Mr. C.

    IF you had even one testicle, you’d show your trade slip.

    No trade slip NO BALLS.

    Stop lying, it’s pathetic.
