Hmm.

I am NOT Huan Hsu’s co-worker. I’m his BOSS. Another reason why he has my sympathy.

    They say that there are now more homeless Viet Nam veterans than Americans killed in action there.

    Judging by the number pan handlers, there are more “homeless Vietnam vets” than actually faught in the entire war.

    Tree Frog Farmer spews:

    Please, don’t be an idiot. The “high watermark” of our involvement was above 558,000 troops. The total serving was in excess of 750,000. KIA is generally given as 58,209 US casualties.

    Tree Frog Farmer spews:

    It is estimated that there are above 3.5 million people who are homeless. 39 per cent are children. The estimate is 10 percent of the homeless are veterans. That would make the estimated total of homeless vets above 300,000 people who Served This Country. These are the very troops the rightwing assholes are always shouting about “supporting”.
    That above 58,000 men and women served in a shooting war and are homeless is nothing to sneer at.

    Pssst….. Tree Frog. I hate to inform you of this but 90% of those 300,000 supposed verterans are liars. It is a front to pick up easy money from saps. You libs are so damn gulible.

    Dan Rather spews:

    And most of the homeless who lie about serving their country are liberals which explains why we have “liberal Veterans”.

    Dan Rather,

    I am a vet. I am not homeless. I would like to introduce to some homeless vets that I served with. Some of these men are too proud to accept help, some are too ill to know they need it. But if you care to call any of them a liar to their face, I would consider it an honor to kick your fucking ass all the way back to Texas. It is obvious that you never served, don’t have the stones to serve and would would never support our troops enough to actually be one. You are a walking, talking coward. You parents must be so proud.

    You are nothing but a smug,small minded, arrogant ignoranus. (ignoranus: one who is both stupid and an asshole). You are all kinds of brave behind the keyboard.

    Step out where we can see you, Danny boy.

    Open thread topic. I just wanted to say that I still miss JCH. One lost election and he jumps into Kilauea. Such a tragic end to a beloved wingnut poster. He was all balls when his side was in control, but even he recognized that it was time to give up the ghost. Now if MTR and Puddy would just do the same.

    Speaking of the dearly departed, whatever happened to proudofherfatlyingcheatingthreateningass? I really miss her.

    HERE’S A GREAT ARTICLE FOR DOOFUS!

    WASHINGTON, April 11 — Five years after the Bush administration began a crackdown on voter fraud, the Justice Department has turned up virtually no evidence of any organized effort to skew federal elections, according to court records and interviews.

    Although Republican activists (OR MENTALLY-ILL WANNABES LIKE DOOFUS) have repeatedly said fraud is so widespread that it has corrupted the political process and, possibly, cost the party election victories, about 120 people have been charged and 86 convicted as of last year…

    Many of those charged by the Justice Department appear to have mistakenly filled out registration forms or misunderstood eligibility rules, a review of court records and interviews with prosecutors and defense lawyers show.

    In Miami, an assistant United States attorney said many cases there involved what were apparently mistakes by immigrants, not fraud.

    In Wisconsin, where prosecutors have lost almost twice as many cases as they won, charges were brought against voters who filled out more than one registration form and felons seemingly unaware that they were barred from voting.

    YLB COMMENT: THE LAST NAIL IN THE COFFIN FOR IDIOTS LIKE DOOUFS. DON’T WORRY, HE’LL KEEP SPINNING HIS LOONY FANTASIES FOR THE REST OF HIS DAYS. A CRUSHING DEFEAT LIKE WE SAW LAST NOV 7 WILL MAKE HIM CRAWL UNDER A ROCK FOR A WEEK OR TWO BUT THEN HE’LL BE BACK OUT FORTIFIED WITH A NEW DRAUGHT OR TWO OF WINGNUT KOOL-AID FROM FLUSH LIMPBONE OR FAUX NEWS. IT’S ALMOST AS CERTAIN AS THE SUN RISING AND SETTING.

    Here we go again. When will these right wing cowards and traitors ever learn that it’s the cover up that gets them caught? All they had to do when that dick-sucking punk the AG fired the attorneys was tell the truth. He could have said,
    “We tried to pressure these people into helping us use their position in a way that abuses the Constitution for political gain and they had the gaul to defy us so we fired them.”

    But no, they lied and now claim 5 million emails are “missing.” Just as we did during Watergate, we’ll eventually get to the truth and we’ll eventually send all these pieces of shit packing and America will once again be a free country.

    I was out walking around Tacoma on my lunch break several years ago, and a “homeless” guy hit me up for some money. He pitched his request with the old tune, “I’m a veteran!” and showed my his military ID card.

    I whipped out my wallet and showed him my military retired ID card and said, “So am I!” I put my wallet back in my pocket and walked away without making a contribution to help fund his next purchase.

    Prediction:

    By end of the week both Rove and Gonzales will be gone.

    ROFLMAO!!!!

    Bush’s wagon is hitched to these two nags and they are about to go over the edge.

    Several people have expressed a desire to examine these bonobos computers to see what porn they’ve been viewing. . .but what I would be curious to know, is, have any of them been visiting HA?

    spews:

    So, Libertarian.

    You were at lunch, so presumably you are somewhere that food is available. A homeless veteran asks you for help, and you walk away.

    No offer of a meal, not even a bit of sympathy. Just show your own ID and walk away.

    I generally won’t give money, as much of that money ends up being used for liquor or drugs. Even I’m not gullible enough to believe otherwise.

    But even alcoholics and drug addicts get hungry. A fellow veteran asked you for some help, and your answer is that you’re a veteran too. I suppose that means you don’t feel an obligation to help, and on one level, I agree with you.

    You had an opportunity to help a fellow veteran. You chose not to take that opportunity.

    Ok, I think that I have the whole picture.

    I heard that the latest poll on public approval of Congress shows an increase…apparently, Congress’ approval rating has passed Bush’s – this is quite unusual if true.

    Milo spews:

    I found an old (ancient really) high school essay I did..it was standard ‘do the times make the man, or does the man make the times’ type essay directed at Honest Abe.

    It would be interesting to explore that subject with GW.

    His might read, ‘Did the times destroy the man, or did the man destroy the times.’ I think even GW supporters could agree we really didn’t elect a strong enough leader for the current times.

    SOME REPUBLICANS LIKE THE FIRED USA’S AND THE PEOPLE SAVING ROVE’S E-MAIL AT THE RNC REMEMBER THE NIXON DAYS WHEN THAT SCUMBAG USED EVERY AGENCY OF THE FEDERAL GOVERNMENT TO EXPAND AND MAINTAIN HIS GRIP ON POWER.

    REPUBLICANS IN THE FORD ERA TRIED TO REFORM BUT IT WAS TOO LITTLE, TOO LATE. REPUBLICANS THAT LEARNED THE LESSONS OF THOSE DAYS INCLUDED PAUL O’NEIL WHO WAS BROUGHT IN TO HIDE THE EXTREME NATURE OF THE BUSH/CHENEY CROWD AND THEN WAS PUSHED OUT WHEN HE WAS NO LONGER NEEDED.

    THE ULTIMATE MISTAKE OF ROVE IS IN BELIEVING SO MANY PEOPLE CAN BE BOUGHT OFF FOR CHEAP WITH PIDDLING TAX CUTS (PIDDLING EXCEPT FOR THE RICH OF COURSE). OF COURSE THEY CAN BE BUT ONLY FOR A LITTLE WHILE. OBVIOUSLY SOME FOOLS LIKE DOOFUS AND PUDDYBUD CAN BE BOUGHT OFF FOREVER BUT THESE ARE THE EXCEPTIONS THAT PROVE THE RULE.

    UNFORTUNATELY EVERYTHING IS NOW IN THE HANDS OF THE SENATE REPUBLICANS. AGAIN, THEY MUST REALIZE THAT THEIR OWN SURVIVAL HINGES ON WHETHER OR NOT THEY HAVE THE STONES TO TURN ON THE OUTLAWS IN THE WHITE HOUSE.

    THE DAM STARTED BREAKING ON NOV 7 2006. NOW IT’S REALLY STARTING TO FLOOD. I WISH IT HAD COME SOONER BUT YOU HAVE TO TAKE WHAT YOU CAN GET.

  24. 28

    Tree Frog Farmer spews:

    ArtFart@26 The logical extension of that goes something like this: They have refused to release the WhiteHouse visit logs regarding this as having to do with official duties, etc.
    However, it seems the Emails in question very probably were passed through non-Official channels. . .and that means if they were “official communications” this would be a violation of “The Official apersw Act”. If not, then they are subject to normal sub poena and perusal. . . .
