    Hey, I “know” Obama is a socialist who will soon have the government designing iPods and building cars (just wait, any day now). But golly, how come Wall Street hasn’t noticed. I KNOW Sarah Palin and Glen Beck are smarter than everyone on Wall Street, and know more about capitalism and economics, so how come Beck, Palin or Limbaugh haven’t written a letter to the leaders on Wall Street to inform them!

    I mean poor Wall Street, those suckers are under the impression that Obama is the 180 degree exact opposite of socialist, and they think between the bank bailouts, car bailouts, health care ‘reform’, and such that we’re taking tax payer money and GIVING it to Wall Street and private for-profit firms, not taking Wall Street money and giving it to the people. So…er…the Dow closed yesterday at the highest point since Obama took office. Why can’t Wall Street listen to Beck, Palin and Limbaugh and understand that Obama (and his secret Kenyan army) will STEAL their money (and guns) any day now! If ONLY everyone listened to Beck we’d be saved! Oh sad days!

    See if someone can figure this out….

    its the new oba-math.
    obama: Raise your hands. All right. Well, a lot of those folks, your employer it’s estimated would see premiums fall by as much as 3,000 percent [sic], which means they could give you a raise. “

    how the hell does something get reduced by 3000%??? and then he wets the appetite of the braindead by telling them they might even get a raise. LMFAO..

    and OF COURSE, the progressive sheep in the audience cheered. These must be the same uneducated freeloaders who thought they “would not have to pay their mortgage or pay for gas if obama gets elected”.

    Christ, and you guys said bush was dumb??

    Bush IS Dumb. Seriously. Not saying Obama has NEVER in a million speeches tripped over his tongue. Bush only got into college (after his silver spoon millionaire parents paid for his elite east coast prep school) because of his parents. Bush is Dumb. Very dumb. He didn’t just trip over his tongue once or twice (like above), but in EVERY speech he gave. He didn’t have basic grammatical skills or the ability to speak like a grown up. Very very very dumb. And he spent the countries surplus, bankrupted us, started two wars without paying for either of them, created a new Federal intelligence department (Homeland Security) without removing any of the 24 other intelligence agencies, created a half trillion dollar welfare program WITHOUT paying for it…just putting everything on credit (deficit) forever…passing it on to the NEXT guy (Obama) to pay for. Dumb dumb dumb.

    Since Obama “the socialist” has taken office, socialist Wall Street (giggle) has pushed the dow from 6,500 to 10,700. If only Wall Street would listen to Beck, Palin and Limbaugh they’d realize that Obama and his secret anti-christian Kenyan army would soon take us over and the government will take over the free market (and steal our guns) and design iPods for us! ROTFLMAO.

    There USED to be smart Republicans (William F Buckley)…now we have Beck, Palin and Limbaugh representing the party, the dumbest of the dumb. Who make FUN of anyone with “fancy elite” education. What a joke.

    Health care in analogy:

    We have some of the best health care TECHNOLOGY on earth, but some of the worst ACCESS. That’s the core of our problem and why our nation is so unhealthy compared to the rest of the world. Think of it this way. What if I build a car that goes 450mph, gets 190mpg, and can survive a head on collision at any speed safely…oh, it costs $1.6 million dollars. So I can SAY I have the best car world, better than any car in say Canada. But if only 1% of the people can afford to buy it, does it matter? Does it? Having “the best” is moot if people can’t get access to it or afford it. Maybe the Canadian cars can only go 125mph, get 30mpg, and are decently safe, but everyone can afford them. In that case, who’s country would have better “transportation”?

    Health care in the US is broken and is heading for a complete break down, except for the rich. Double digit premium increases year after year guarantee this.

    I know why the so called health care industry supports the status quo: increasing premiums on well people and dumping sick people means an ever increasing profit margin for them.

    I also know why the Rethugs in congress supports the status quo: they march in step with their masters.

    I also know why the tea party and others like them support the status quo: they believe what they have been told by their “reliable sources”.

    What I don’t understand is why so many on the right who have a few independent brain cells left still support the status quo.

    Very clever my friend. The humorless Atheist Progressive KLOWNS cannot laugh at one of their own. But Thank God America has had it with Obam-Mao!!!

    Thursday, March 18, 2010

    The Rasmussen Reports daily Presidential Tracking Poll for Thursday shows that 23% of the nation’s voters Strongly Approve of the way that Barack Obama is performing his role as President. Forty-three percent (43%) Strongly Disapprove giving Obama a Presidential Approval Index rating of -20. That’s just one point above the all-time low.

    Each time the President leads a big push for his health care plan, his job approval ratings suffer.

    Obam-Mao truly seems to believe that he can LIE and everyone must believe it.
    He has lost credibility with the majority of Americans. The shine has worn off, the image tarnished. Progressivism is D-E-A-D!

    democrats 4 dummies spews:

    Tanenhaus on covering up the cover-up. From March 1933 until about a minute before Joe McCarthy arrived late for the lynch party, two Democrat administrations were indifferent to Communist subversion in two Democrat administrations.

    President Truman in 1945 ignored FBI warnings (via Elizabeth Bentley) that [Assistant Treasury Secretary Harry Dexter] White has a Soviet agent. … [Then Truman nominated White to lead the IMF.]

    By this time few questioned that White had been a Communist. Even his former Treasury colleagues were not shocked by the charge. … Once again Harry Truman entered the fray, calling the whole story a lie and saying he had read no FBI report on White in 1945. Then came embarrassing testimony by Truman’s first secretary of state, James Byrnes …

    Byrnes told a Senate committee he had read the 1945 FBI report, and so had Truman. What was more, said Byrnes, the report plainly stated White “was known to be engaged in espionage activity.” Byrnes said he had been alarmed, but Truman had pushed through White’s IMF nomination anyway. Cornered, Truman went on national television in Kansas City and castigated the Republicans.

    Not a Roger Rabbit commentary: Venona shows that White was one of dozens, perhaps hundreds, of CPUSA members and Communist spies who filled the New Deal and Fair Deal. FDR blew off all reports of pre-WWII red-liberal-progressive treason in his administration, particularly in the period when the USSR and Nazi Germany were allies.

    Truman continued the cover-up. He stifled the Amerasia scandal in 1945, the Gouzenko scandal in 1945 (when it was revealed that reds had infiltrated Los Alamos), and early attempts to tell the truth about Alger Hiss. Instead, Truman promoted Hiss just as he promoted White.

    Then he castigated Republicans. Same Democrat crap, different day.

    democrats 4 dummies spews:

    Very clever, those Goldycrats. Somehow they succeeded in casting Joe McCarthy, not Joe Stalin and his American groupies, as the emblematic evil of an era.

    HUAC, which finally blew the lid off Truman’s cover-up in 1948, gets no respect. Maybe because they looked like commie crooks and liars. (Parnell Thomas, HUAC chairman, was later indicted and did time. And then there’s the guy on the far right …

    This Tanenhaus is for rhp:

    For years Stalin had been the leading proponent of collective security against Hitler, a stance that had won him many admirers in the West. It was not yet known that for years the dictator had quietly been courting Hitler through personal diplomacy and by more elaborate measures. The massive purge of the Red Army had been undertaken, for instance, to rid the military command of those most overtly hostile to a German alliance. … communism and facism mad partners at last, their fellowship soon to be sealed with the blood of nations.

    Not to be confused with the wealth of nations.

    Up in BC, criminal charges have finally been filed in the sinking of the MV Queen of the North. It has only been 4 years since the BC Ferry left Port Hardy on it’s routine run to Prince Rupert, BC and sank off Gil Island. Two charges of Criminal Negligence Causing Death against the Navigation Officer, in the case of 2 passengers that were never found. Although I am surprised the Crown Prosecutors did not charge the other crewmembers. One story had some of them playing God in a way. That they focused on saving a couple crewmembers in the Engine Room(which is below the water line) instead of a room by room search of the Passenger Cabin. The ship sank in about an hour. The rescue effort was much better, as the Canadian Coast Guard was steaming to the rescue, they had help from a nearby fishing village, who fired up their boats and headed out to help. (BC Ferries 2 North Route boats are not like anything down here, think of a version of the old Princess Margarite, part car ferry, part Ocean Liner)

    http://www.timescolonist.com/n.....story.html

    Plus, one reason the investigation took so long, was they were waiting on the Canadian Equivalent of the NTSB to issue their findings, and there was also an internal investigation by BC Ferries, of which the crewmembers responsible were fired.

    Some are calling for a judicial inquiry of the sinking itself, because the trial of the navigation officer will not, in their opinion, answer all the questions. The BC Legislature should go for the judicial inquiry, the legislature itself is probably partially to blame. The Liberals made management changes to BC Ferries when they took over after the 2001 election. The previous New Democratic Party government wasted money that might have gone to replacing the Queen of the North on a new generation of ferries that would have reduced travel times on the main routes between the Victoria area and the Lower Mainland. Think of our Chinook-Class ferries with their wake erosion problems, only being bigger, and carried automobiles.

    Hey Max,

    I did some googling. Here’s something foreign to your tiny brain. A cite:

    The Japanese can be genetically classified into two categories–people native to the Ryukyu Islands in Okinawa Prefecture and people native to other parts of Japan–researchers from the Institute of Physical and Chemical Science (Riken), who analyzed the genes and genetic structure of about 7,000 people, have discovered.

    Riken’s findings, which were meant to shed more light on the origins of Japanese, were published in the online edition of a U.S. science magazine on Friday.

    The biggest genetic difference in these two groups were found to be hair thickness and ear wax texture. People who originated from areas outside of the Ryukyu Islands tend to have much harder hair and drier ear wax and were discovered to be genetically closer to Chinese people.

    hahahahahahha, THANK YOU, racist YLB, for letting me STRING YOU ALONG ALL DAY – and having you prove that the Japanese are not a race by themselves.

    Here, let me explain to your dim-witted ass:

    In your grasping attempts to keep up with me, you unwittingly OWNED the rest of your progressive friends here. How so..well follow along if you can…

    Goldy himself proclaimed that the japanese are a race. as did YOU. as did at least a half dozen others in an attempt to assassinate the character of Kemper Freeman. How so? Goldy, in his usual attention whore and self righteous self, proudly proclaimed that because Kemper Freeman’s father bought/took/stole/whatever land owned by the Japanese after 1941, that Kemper Freeman HIMSELF was thus racist.

    Goldy did it on more than on thread, AND YOU WERE ALL TO EAGER JUMP IN! SOoooooooo, fast forward a few weeks or months, when you and the rabbit turd make some racial remarks about the Japanese, all of the sudden the Japanese are no longer a race, and therefore one cannot be racist against them for simply being japanese.

    WELL WHAT THE FUCKS IT GONNA BE? Now that you have not only owned yourself, you have owned some of the other slimeballs here like goldy.

    GOOD JOB YLB! THANKS FOR PLAYING!

    I looked at three posts – two from Goldy and one from Will that mentioned Kemper Freeman and Japanese. I didn’t comment on any of them. If you got one, here’s your chance to man up and prove me wrong.

    Ok Max. The Census form seems to think Japanese is a race along with Asian Indian, Cambodian, Hmong, Loatian, Pakistani and “Other Pacific Islander” – like Fijian, Tongan.

    That’s a lot of races – and lot of fodder for an idiot like you. I wish the Census Form used another word.

    I would personally lump Japanese in with Koreans, Chinese and other East Asians – but that’s just me. I don’t study the race issue all that much. It’s not a priority for me. People are people and that’s it for me.

    Ok let’s see if YOU can follow now…

    There’s the nation of Japan, people of traditional Japanese origin and there are minorities and immigrants in Japan – a very small group. There’s also the government of Japan which is what news people and what not refer to when discussing politics and government policy. They say, the “Chinese” are opposed to unpegging their currency or the “Japanese” are supportive of lifting foreign trade barriers.

    Roger Rabbit and I were referring to the “government” of Japan. Ok? The “Japanese” were “dumb” by not doing anything about blue-fin tuna overfishing just like Americans would be “dumb” about not doing anything about health care.

    AND YOU’RE AN IDIOT IF YOU THINK THAT”S RACIST.

    I got nothing against people of any race or ethnicity Max unlike some of your fellow travelers on the right like Mark who called Obama a “jigaboo” or Mark the Redneck who called
    Seattle Jew a “hymie” and a “kike” or Klynical who told a racist joke about Obama or JCH, the first guy who was banned here who was so racist even Stupes condemned him.

    Let’s start the day with a bit of humor….
    It’s an old…but appropriate around tax time-

    The IRS decides to audit Grandpa, and summons him to the IRS office.

    The IRS auditor was not surprised when Grandpa showed up with his attorney.

    The auditor said, ‘Well, sir, you have an extravagant lifestyle and no full-time employment, Which you explain by saying that you win money gambling. I’m not sure the IRS finds that believable.’

    I’m a great gambler, and I can prove it,’ says Grandpa. ‘How about a demonstration?’

    The auditor thinks for a moment and said, ‘Okay. Go ahead.’

    Grandpa says, ‘I’ll bet you a thousand dollars that I can bite my own eye.’

    The auditor thinks a moment and says, ‘It’s a bet.’

    Grandpa removes his glass eye and bites it. The auditor’s jaw drops.

    Grandpa says, ‘Now, I’ll bet you two thousand dollars that I can bite my other eye.’

    Now the auditor can tell Grandpa isn’t blind, so he takes the bet. Grandpa removes his dentures and bites his good eye.

    The stunned auditor now realizes he has wagered and lost three grand, with Grandpa’s attorney as a witness. He starts to get nervous.

    ‘Want to go double or nothing?’ Grandpa asks ‘I’ll bet you six thousand dollars that I can stand on one side of your desk, and pee into that wastebasket on the other side, and never get a drop anywhere in between.’

    The auditor, twice burned, is cautious now, but he looks carefully and decides there’s no way this old guy could possibly manage that stunt, so he agrees again.

    Grandpa stands beside the desk and unzips his pants, but although he strains mightily, he can’t make the stream reach the wastebasket on the other side, so he pretty much urinates all over the auditor’s desk.

    The auditor leaps with joy, realizing that he has just turned a major loss into a huge win.

    But Grandpa’s own attorney moans and puts his head in his hands. ‘Are you okay?’ the auditor asks.

    ‘Not really,’ says the attorney. ‘This morning, when Grandpa told me he’d been summoned for an audit, he bet me twenty-five thousand dollars that he could come in here and piss all over your desk and that you’d be happy about it!’

    Unlike the Republican Medicare Part D fiasco which happened on Bush and the Republican’s watch. At the same time when you yum-yums ran up $11 trillion dollars in future taxes on the next 4-5 generations of Americans.

    Plummeting poll numbers? Contrary to wingnuttia popular belief the only polls that matter are the ones conducted every other year on the first Tuesday in November. BTW, the last two polls clearly demonstrated the American People do not BELIEVE in Reaganism any more.

    What leads you to believe that reforming health care that extends coverage to nearly every American, reduces the Reagan Republican national debt by a trillion dollars or more would make the public more likely to reelect the Republicans who: A) caused the financial crisis, and B) never intend to fix health care in America?

    Then there’s this from Alterman about Rabbit’s Nam, which Rabbit tends to load on Nixon:

    The same liberals who acted so callously toward the shite working class at home found themselves stuck inside an unwinnable, dishonestly promoted and apparently endless war in far-off Indochina — one in which they stood accused of treating the lives of American poor and working-class children as so much fodder for their (ultimately) discredited theories of dominoes and deterrence. The fact that the children of the elite enjoyed the option of sitting out the war with college deferments — meanwhile indulging in sexual and pharmaceutical experiments, and mocking both the war and the patriotic support it inspired in large, often outlandish political demonstraitons — whiole working-class kids were perceived by middle America to accept their duty to defend the country and often die for it exacerbated the already deadly undersurrent of intra-Democratic class conflict. Blue collar workers not only perceived their vulnerability to liberal caprice but came to view liberals as feckless and cowardly when they ultimately turned against the war as well. The unavoidable appearance of hypocrisy again incited rage, and the net result was the permanent destruction of the New Deal coalition.

    Roger Rabbitless Commentary: Feckless. YLB used the word yesterday. It fits him like a training bra.

    The Nam: Blessings to Roger for enlisting and taking the place of some rich liberal’s fortunate son. Or taking the place of someone with other priorities from the long list of GOP chickenhawks (easy, Steve! the other kind of GOP chickenhawks …) that Alterman enumerates in his book about liberals.

    Hypocrisy: Amazing how often that work is linked with “liberal” in Alterman’s book about liberals.

    Reagan lives. He picked up big pieces of the broken New Deal coalition and built the Reagan Revolution. But nothing lasts forever.
