    Great News for Seattle!

    • Sales-tax revenue is expected to be $25 million less than what had been forecast for the coming year.

    • Real-estate excise-tax revenue has fallen by 70 percent from 2007.

    • Business-and-occupation-tax revenue is expected to be down next year, too.

    Hey Goldy, why don’t they just RAISE TAXES?
    Let’s see, Goldy wants Obama to RAISE TAXES.
    Goldy wants Gregoire to RAISE TAXES.
    Goldy wants King Kounty to RAISE TAXES.
    Goldy wants School District to RAISE TAXES.
    And now what Goldy??
    What should Seattle do???
    RAISE TAXES!!

    Obama weak.
    Americans overwhelmingly feel Country headed in wrong direction.
    Congress needs to read and post Legislation before voting.

    OUCH!

    Thursday, October 01, 2009

    The Rasmussen Reports daily Presidential Tracking Poll for Thursday shows that 29% of the nation’s voters Strongly Approve of the way that Barack Obama is performing his role as President. Thirty-seven percent (37%) Strongly Disapprove giving Obama a Presidential Approval Index rating of -8. Thirty-three percent (33%) say the nation is generally heading in the right direction.

    Eighty-three percent (83%) say that all legislation should be posted online and available for everyone to read before Congress votes on it. Of those who want the information available, 64% say legislation should be posted in final form at least two weeks before a vote.

    Thanks for advocating that we go to a more stable form of taxes for the services the public demands.
    Thanks for the good reasons why we should dump the sales tax and switch to an income tax.

    cyn, His numbers are down, but not for the reasons you think.
    I for one, would have voted that that the nation is generally NOT heading in the right direction, because , for example, we don’t have a strong public option Health Care bill.
    Because the Dems continue to be spineless and act like the repubs are in power, the nation is generally NOT heading in the right direction.

    Actually, in real polls Obama’s numbers are up:

    A CBS/New York Times poll put him at 56%-33%, compared to 56%-35% in August. An NBC/Wall Street Journal poll has him at 51%-41%, compared to 51%-40% in August. A Fox News poll has him at 54%-39%, compared to 53%-40% in August.

    And Klynical fails to give the real breakdown on Obamas overall favorable vs unfavorable – preferring instead to use the stiilted “index” that was never used for any other President before.

    According to this false “index” Bush was at negative 38, at one point. So much for objectivity and ability to undertand data from Klynical – your neighborhood third-grade level troll. Pluus, I have already shown numerous times that Rasmussen is a biased republican pollster that is unreliable and out of the mainstream (an outlier) based on their inferior methodology and biased questions.

    Speaking of rightwingnut crazies, here is the headline and first few lines of a “newsmax” column advocating a military coup against Obama:

    Obama Risks a Domestic Military Intervention

    By: John L. Perry

    There is a remote, although gaining, possibility America’s military will intervene as a last resort to resolve the “Obama problem.” Don’t dismiss it as unrealistic.

    Yup, these “patriots” who supported illegal torture and illegal spying on Americans want a third world style “coup”. These idiots would not know the constitution if it knocked them on the side of the head.

    And Newsmax – that bogus “news” organization lists the republican party as a sponsor.

    correctnotright spews:

    Oh yeah, the republican health care plan….first they trotted out a plan that cost 1.8 trillion, gave away the farm to the insurance industry, did not control costs, did not cover everyone and did not reduce premiums or the costs of health care…..it was so incomplete they took it back…now they are voting on “amendmends”.

    What do the republicans want to do to the health care plan? They want to make poor people pay more and give more money to the insurance industry…that is their idea of reform.

    Why?

    Because they get lots of money from the insurance industry and they don’t care aobut poor people dying from lack of insurance.

    It’s getting late in the Senate Finance Committee’s writing of a health-care bill, but not too late for Republicans on Wednesday to make one more valiant stand for the health insurance industry.

    Late in the afternoon, Sen. Chuck Grassley (Iowa), the top Republican on the committee, requested consideration of the “Grassley F-1 Modified Amendment.” Its goal: eliminate $7 billion a year in fees that the government would charge private health insurance companies, and make up the shortfall by reducing benefits to poor people and legal immigrants.

    It was dangerously close to a parody: Republicans demanding that fees be reduced on a profitable industry and shifted to low-income Americans.

    Mr. Cynical spews:

    The fact that Rasmussen Polls “likely voters” and not ILLEGAL ALIENS like the polls CNR cites accounts for it’s deadly accuracy.
    If CNR is correct, the Public Option Health Plan is a slam dunk.
    Poor cnr, the Rasmussen Poll is driving him nuts (not that there was ever far to go).

    CNR cannot explain that if Obama and other Dems believed cnr’s flawed polls…why they wouldn’t be jamming thru the Progressive Agenda??

    Look, even Obama knows he is in trouble.
    Only cnr has OD’d on Obama’s Stupid Solution.

    Taxes are down BECAUSE THE ECONOMY SUCKS.
    Raising taxes in a bad economy is not the answer…per Christine Gregoire!
    We should be lowering taxes and getting $$ moving legitimately (not with more MASSIVE DEFICIT SPENDING AND Obama borrowing smoke-and-mirrors game).

    BJ..have you ever considered that government has grown and is doing way too much in our lives? Lots of people have. It’s like a drug…let government do it.
    Now is the best time ever to reform government and get back to the basics of Public Safety, Defense and Infrastructure.
    Empower PEOPLE, not a seperate entity of Government, to CONTINUE to do good things.
    I know the Government Employees Unions go nuts when they hear terms like right-sizing government…but what we have now is UNSUSTAINABLE.
    In Washington, Gregoire should have laid off 10,000 or so employees. She did next to nothing…kicking the can down the road.
    Indecisiveness is a decision…and a bad one.
    It has even more negative consequences.

    Obama’s INDECISIVENESS in Afghanistan is really hurting us according to huge numbers of Americans. Obama made a committment to fight to win in Afghanistan is March. He clearly stated Iraq was wrong and Afghanistan is right.
    Now, 6 months later…INDECISIVENESS!
    Obama doesn’t know what he is doing.
    He is inexperienced and a dangerous ideologue.
    America continues to suffer under messiah.

    Morons like Stupes and Klyn love Scott Rasmussen. Rasmussen does two things well – push polls in the run ups to election seasons to play to right wing idiot biases and then gets in line with his competition during the heat of the election season so he doesn’t look a complete tool.

    Rasmussen has Mr. Klynical dancing like a puppet on a string.

    Rasmussen has Stupes bleating “he’s most accurate, he’s most accurate”, sure, right before November when reality has the best chance to make a liar out of the push poller.

    Stupes and Klyn – a couple of knee-jerk Rasmussen cheerleaders in drag complete with skirts way above the knee and pom-poms..

    Yesterday we told you about the creepily named American Police Force, the mysterious security company which had secured a ten year contract to run an unused but super-expensive prison in tiny Hardin, Montana but refused to say what they were going to do with it and proceeded to swagger around town like Solider of Fortune pin-ups.

    There were conspiracy theories aplenty and a lot of legitimate suspicion that APF was a cover or proxy for some bigger and more well-known security outfit that didn’t want to reveal its name.

    So who runs APF? Good news! A convicted thief and sometime real estate swindler with about a dozen aliases from Orange County, California.

    THISis why I love republicans and our stupid fucking trolls so much. They do and say the goddamned cutest things.

    Really…can you even make something like this up?

    Back a few years ago when I was doing a lot of reporting on security companies working in Iraq, I was always amused, surprised, sometimes forced to laugh out loud at how often it seemed that the security company was just a shell offering to do any number of things they’d never done before but would be happy to figure out how to do if you gave them a contract. And when we were poking around in the background of American Police Force, the gonzo security outfit which took over that prison up in Montana, it seemed like pretty much the same story. Only to an almost infinitely more comical degree.

    Among the services? Surveilling your cheating spouse, security for convoys in Iraq, rescuing kidnapping victims. And if rescuing kidnapping victims ain’t your bag, APF will also kidnap people and hold them for ransom for you. (This latter part may actually just be a matter of sloppy writing. But with APF, who knows. They want to serve your needs; whatever they might be.) Sort of like working either the management or labor side of Labor Law. Similarly, they’ll either provide protection from WMDs or provide you with WMDs. Whichever side you want to play. Also, “covert pregnancy testing.”

    It goes on and on. Rachel Slajda has the story.

    Oh yeahhhhh…this is a good one.

    Then, we can ask them to sign this next:

    Blue John spews:

    All Mark Foley did was talk to people who were OF AGE per the FBI!
    You do not remember the facts.

    After the initial story on the e-mails, other pages contacted ABC and the Washington Post, providing transcripts of sexually explicit instant messaging (IM) conversations from 2003 that Foley had with two pages under the age of 18 at the time. The Washington Post reported that it had received its copies of these same IMs from a page who had served on Capitol Hill with the two pages who received them.

    The irony was Foley was chairman of the House Caucus on Missing and Exploited Children, which introduced legislation targeting sexual predators and created stricter guidelines for tracking them.
    He was engaging in the behavior that he was trying to stop.

    Now if we applied the story that Foley did this 21 years ago and not since, personally, I would have considered it creepy, but if he had not engaged in the behavior for decades, then I’m going to give him the benefit of the doubt that he has learned to make better choices.

  25. 32

    YLB spews:

    31 – The age of consent may be earlier than 18 in certain jurisdictions but of course that doesn’t excuse Foley from being a total “family values” hypocrite.

    Hear that Stupes, a holier than thou, “family values” hypocrite. The “reality” is that he was a mouth-breathing, pervy REPUBLICAN cruiser for young flesh.

But we became a great nation not because we are a nation of cynics. We became a great nation because we are a nation of believers.”

    Appearing before a crowd of Washington’s elite power players and opinion-makers, Graham spoke largely without filter, offering acidic takes on subject well beyond Beck. The Senator called the birther community that questions the president’s U.S. citizenship “crazy” and implored them to “knock this crap off” so the country could get on to more important matters.

    “I’m here to tell you that those who think the president was not born in Hawaii are crazy,” said Graham, who went on to dispel another myth: that Obama is a closet Muslim.

    Resolved: The Miskitos of Nicaragua were victims of leftist genocide. The expansive definition of genocide that YLB and I accept can also be stretched to cover Clinton’s war against the Serbs and Bush 2.0’s war against Iraq.

    A Dem Congressman from Florida asserts that America’s health care system is a genocidal holocaust.

    So riddle me this, YLB: Why doesn’t the Democrat left apply the word genocide to the real American holocaust, the 30,000,000+ children who were destroyed before they were allowed to be born and ground down by the health-care genocide?

    Reverend Peterson wants to know, since the genocide of pre-infants seems to be disproportionately tilted toward the destruction of infants who are not white.

    Most Americans say they are worried about Iran developing a nuclear weapons program, and think President Obama should be tougher on the rogue nation. In addition, a clear majority supports the use of force to prevent Iran from obtaining nuclear weapons. According to a new FOX News poll released Thursday, a sizable 69 percent majority of Americans thinks President Obama has not been tough enough on Iran. That includes over half of Democrats (55 percent), two-thirds of independents (67 percent) and almost all Republicans (88 percent).

    Some 16 percent of Americans think the president’s actions have been “about right” and hardly any — 6 percent — say he has been “too tough” on Iran. By a two-to-one margin the public thinks the U.S. will eventually need to use military force to stop Iran from obtaining nuclear weapons — 59 percent think so, while 29 percent think Iran can be stopped without the use of force.

    Furthermore, 61 percent of Americans support the U.S. taking military action to stop Iran, including majorities of Democrats (53 percent), Republicans (73 percent) and independents (55 percent). Some 28 percent of Americans oppose military action against Iran.

    @21: Why would I need help from someone who cannot even interpret simple data?

    Once again, you fail to grasp the main point. The republicans are gettting millions from the insurance lobby and are voting in lock step with the lobby.

    do I have to detail all the money the crooked and corrupt republicans are getting from the insurance companies?

    In 2004, Humana’s chairman and former CEO David Jones donated a million dollars to the McConnell Center for Political Leadership, a University of Louisville academic center.

    Medicare Advantage is a GOP-created program that gives private plans an average of 14 percent more tax dollars than the government pays for coverage of patients under traditional Medicare.

    Democratic health-care proposals would cut payments to those plans by about $123 billion over 10 years.

    That would cut deeply into insurance company profits.

    So who is voting to support obscene insurance company profits….do I have to spell it out for you Puddy – or are you bright enough to figure it out on your own? Insurance companies are ripping off our taxes….and republicans want to enable them.

    Next time you complain about taxes – remember that! Hypocrite.

    Oh, and Klynical, try chewing on these numbers for your republican “heroes” in congress:

    Even lower numbers (12%) give Republicans in Congress positive ratings and over half (52%) give them negative ones

    From the Harris poll in September.

    Ooops, why isn’t Klynical reporting THESE numbers? ‘Cause he is too damn stupid.

    Meanwhile Obama is at 55% approval. That is looking mighty good next to the putrid republican numbers.

    12 freakin’ percent Klynical – that is wsupport for trogolodytes with your viewpoint. Why do we bother even listening to a small minority of vapid fools at 12%.

    Next time you hear McCain talk about government-run health remember that he is being payed more than any other member of congress by the these PACs for the drug companies and the helth care industry.

    Boehner, Cantor and the others are also in the pocket of the insurance companies.

    Next time you wonder why Baucus refuses a public option and opposes his own party…just rmeber where his bread is being buttered.

    Obama COMMITTED to fight to win in March.
    How do those families of soldiers who gave their lives feel about Obama now questioning whether or not to fight to win.

    More troops and fight to win…or get out.
    I don’t care what the polls tell him…they are a reflection of his indecisiveness.

    Obama needed training wheels for this job.
    It doesn’t work that way.
    America suffers under a Marxist Ideologue.

    Cynical: “Obama is a procrastinator when we need decisiveness.”

    We have seen the results of having a “decider.” Obama understands perfectly well that some decisions must be made on the spot and some permit some contemplation. Rushing to decisions because of rightwing paranoia produces an unstable world. Obama is handling the Iran situation perfectly. By waiting for good intelligence, which he did and Cheney would never have done, we now have the Iranians redhanded. So, we’ll have our allies on board (do you remember the concept of “allies,” you know, those folks that gathered together to win WWI and WWII)? Save this post for 7/10. Just promise to post it then, no matter how things turn out in Iran.

    Just like you LOVE KILLING UNBORN BABIES…know what I mean.

    Wow Klyn! You are PASSIONATE about babies!

    Gee I hope you care as much about BORN babies as you do UNBORN!

    What State is highest in infant mortality? The tops in babies DYING before they’re 1 year old after they’re BORN?

    Mississippi gets that honor with 11.4 babies DYING before they’re 1 year old per 1000 births. Did you know there’s only ONE abortion clinic in the entire State. That has to be the culprit. Yes sir!

    How about Washington? 49! Wow! The doctors and the medical systems here are really PRO-LIFE (despite Seattle of course). They really know how to keep babies ALIVE!

    How about Montana?

    ???23???

    Uhhh. I don’t get it Mr. Klyn.. Why isn’t Montana at 50? Aren’t Montanans pro-life? Not even 48 or 47. Montana’s kind of back of the pack there Klyn. Got some catching up to do before they’re as pro-life as Washington State. I guess you moved there because you didn’t want to pay the high gas taxes here and all but gee that infant mortality number is a little disappointing.

    Damn, you’re dumb. That’s why we’re going to win and your ilk will fade into dust. You don’t know what a Marxist is, you don’t know what an ideologue is (though you are an ideologue). Let’s revisit the Iran issue in July of next year, shall we? What’s your prediction, Sweetpea? Iran will have dropped a nuclear weapon on Jerusalem? C’mon, specifics, give us specifics.

    Which is why Foley was returned to the Congress right?

    He resigned under pressure and embarrassment fool. And the Dummocrapt they voted in was a real winner wasn’t he. If you remember Puddy was one of the first conservatives here to call him out on his behavior. Ask Steve, he found it. Ohhh… wait a minute… you have tctmgr, you already have the HA URL and date stamp where Puddy called out Foley and his actions. And the other one where Puddy placed he broke no laws.

    Are you stupid? Abortions are performed at many of the area hospitals like Group Health, Swedish, Harborzoo, etc. it’s just the dirty little secret that they don’t like to advertise.

    Watch Puddy make correctnotright the daily HorsesASS he is…

    Why would I need help from someone who cannot even interpret simple data?

    EPIC FAIL on your part fool! When you look in the mirror you fail all the time and we on the right belly laugh at you. Your latest failure was the poverty values and how you think a 5% increase in the poverty level in New Hampshire is better than a 15% decrease in the poverty level Arkansas.

    Oh yes… Puddy missed a decreasing temperature slope elevation of .105°C and you went nuts. The temperature is dropping at the equator and the slope was just off a tenth of a °C. Yep Puddy really missed that data. It’s still getting cooler ya moron.

    Now when confronted over the $80 Billion deal the whitey house made with Big Pharma and Insurance for their support on the public option of the health care bill you turn a blind eye cuz thems your peeps. This is why we laugh at you correctnotright. Butt correctnotright there is more… Puddy don’t trust your kook-aid so Puddy uses one of his well known favorite sites which correctly reorder your lists proving you are notright norcorrect…

    “In all, 61 members of Congress—39 in the Senate, 22 in the House, 38 Democrats and 23 Republicans—got money from 10 or more outside lobbyists whose healthcare or health insurance industry clients also contributed to their campaigns.”

    Senators Top Ten
    McCain, John R $473,400 – those were mostly 2008 presidential campaign contributions correctnotright. Butt don’t let facts get in the way of a “good biased argument”
    McConnell, Mitch R $237,722
    Baucus, Max D $200,899
    Dodd, Chris D $130,808
    Specter, Arlen D $108,778
    Warner, Mark D $84,450
    Roberts, Pat R $83,420
    Udall, Mark D $79,150
    Landrieu, Mary D $67,000
    Murray, Patty D $59,500 OMG she’s broken the top 10 in something…

    Sometimes Puddy wonders why you act like ylb arschloch when REAL DATA is available for your to investigate, you cherry pick some biased site. Cynical recently wrote you’ve become more nasty. Puddy NOW AGREES!

    House Top Ten
    Camp, Dave R $72,750
    Cantor, Eric R $71,300
    Boehner, John R $55,000
    Meek, Kendrick D $50,028
    Hoyer, Steny H D $41,625
    Granger, Kay R $38,940
    Maffei, Dan D $34,450
    Pomeroy, Earl D $24,281
    Blunt, Roy R $21,600
    Waxman, Henry D $20,500OMG, ain’t this fool writing one of the bills?

    When Puddy and others show the “errors” you place here by purposeful omissions you provide a great laugh for all who think right fool!

    Butt wait correctnotright… there’s even more good news for you to swallow and it ain’t kook-aid…

    “Paul Kirk, Massachusetts’ Interim U.S. Senator, Intimately Tied to Business, Lobbying and Democrats”

    And lookie here correctnotright… Ben Nelson (D) has made an insurance lobby killing over the years…

    According to the nonpartisan Center for Responsive Politics, Sen. Nelson has raised more than $2 million from insurance and health care interests in his three campaigns for federal office.

    The republicans are gettting millions from the insurance lobby and are voting in lock step with the lobby.

    Looks like the Democrats did very well notcorrect and notright. And Democrats are scoring big time from the Wall Street Lobby. Wanna see Chucky Schumer lead that data list AGAIN? You can ask the person you seem to emulate lately, ylb arschloch, cuz he traps every PuddyMissive trying to be chronologically correct but failing miserably every time!!!!!

    And when you hear crap being spouted by Puddy….just ignore it. He can’t defend these numbers – he will just deflect and deny as usual.

    Ahhh yes, after today’s demolition you can go back into your burrow. Remember, send Puddy your request to review the latest correctnotrightism and watch Puddy demolish him with facts and URLs you can read yourself.

    @56: Dear Puddy Maroon

    I love answering an idiot like you hwho has no reasoning ability.

    Again, fool, you make no counter arguments and I listed one citation because that is all this website allows.

    In the meantime have you disputed ANYTHING?

    Thanks for reproving my point with different data – the large majority of the top ten recipients of health care PAC money are republicans.

    Your data looks at 2007-2009 – mine was from 2008-2009 (mostly after the election).

    Even after the democrats are in control, republicans dominate the top money positions.

    I notice you ignore the republican bought and sold corrupt leaders:

    Boehner
    Cantor
    McCain
    McConnell

    But point out the measly 20K to Waxman who is opposing the health care lobby?

    Do you not get it?

    Your own friggin’ data proves my point and you are too dumb to recognize it. hahahah.

    And did you answer the aprt about republicans backing up the health care industry so they take more of our taxes (that they don’t need and pay their exhorbtant salaries) and take it from poor people?

    Nope.

    Thanks for “destroying” my arguments….you are a legend in your own mind, fool. That is why we laugh at your ignorance.

    Here is a hint: If you want to actually discuss as an adult, read your own citations, quit calling people names and quit celebrating your “victories” that are actually defeats.

    Still waiting for you to defend the republicans wasting tax money to pay off the same health care industry they are taking oney fron…..crickets are chirping…..

    correctnotright spews:

    Here is the Guardian on the health care “debate” in the US:

    The industry and interest groups have spent $380m (£238m) in recent months influencing healthcare legislation through lobbying, advertising and in direct political contributions to members of Congress. The largest contribution, totalling close to $1.5m, has gone to the chairman of the senate committee drafting the new law.

    A former member of Bill Clinton’s cabinet says fears that the industry could throw its money behind the populist rightwing backlash against public insurance have scared the Obama White House into pulling back from the most significant reforms in return for healthcare companies not trying to scupper the entire legislation.

    Drug and insurance companies say they are merely seeking to educate politicians and the public. But with industry lobbyists swarming over Capitol Hill ‑ there are six registered healthcare lobbyists for every member of Congress ‑ a partner in the most powerful lobbying firm in Washington acknowledged that healthcare firms’ money “has had a lot of influence” and that it is “morally suspect”.

    Still waiting for you to defend the republicans wasting tax money to pay off the same health care industry they are taking oney fron

    Puddy ain’t defending them. You on the other hand run run run from Puddy when I provide unmistakable data showing your side in the same cookie jar. You have no comment for Democrat “the messiah” and his “disciples” giving an $80 Billion break to big pharma and insurance, with no input from Republicans on that decision, but you’ll jump on any article which puts Republicans in a bad light. The big pharma has nothing to do with contributions moron. They made a deal with “the messiah” to not attack him on his proposals in congress with their lobbyists. You are stupid to the infinite degree.

    The reason Puddy used the link above is when your side took over the congress fool!

    You are such a contentious fool. We laugh at you again today!
