    Goldy,

    Bonnie Mager is a completely awesome Democrat and is running for re-election to the Spokane County (you know the red, real American, part of the state) commissioners (district 3). You should show her some love and do a write up on her. Maybe get a little cash sent her way.

    @ 7,3 et al

    The problem is, O’donnel has managed to live a very wealthy lifestyle on only $8700 annual income. She lives in a huge house, (over 5000 sq ft) and when she defaulted on the mortgage after only owning it for a few months, a man named Brent Basher and bought her out and let her stay in the house while she paid rent. But the rent is only a few hundred a month, and she pays for it with her campaign money, which is illegal.

    She has refused to hire a campaign treasurer, even as this is required by law. She has managed to swindle dozens of campaign workers out of their salaries, reusing to pay them, and they are now becoming quite vocal about this.

    In short, she’s stealing her campaign money. She’s exactly the type of “politician” that you paperhangers constantly vilify.

    So why do you support her? She has no substance, no real intelligence, and is probably the most uneducated person running for office this cycle. She’s a complete lunatic.

    With a Democrat like this, why would we need a Republican to screw working people.

    “This is a special update of the Federation Hotline on Tuesday, Sept. 21.

    GOVERNOR FOUND GUILTY OF UNFAIR LABOR PRACTICE OVER POST-NEGOTIATION ACTIONS IN 2008

    Thurston County Superior Court Judge Tom McPhee late this afternoon ruled in favor of the Federation and found the governor and her budget office guilty of an unfair labor practice for failing to bargain when it determined the 2009-11 contracts agreed to in September 2008 were not “financially feasible” and the governor would not forward the contracts to the Legislature for funding.

    McPhee said the state, not the union, had the obligation to request re-opening of negotiations once it, in effect, withdrew from the tentative agreements reached earlier. That failure “violated the good faith bargaining obligation and constitutes an unfair labor practice,” McPhee said in his ruling.

    Once the budget office told the governor the contracts were not financially feasible, the state had the obligation “without delay” to notify the union, explain why it reached its conclusion and then request re-negotiation, the judge said.

    Faced with the prospect of no contract because of the state’s refusal to initiate bargaining, the union demanded negotiations, which came in the spring of 2009, long after the financially infeasibility ruling was made in December 2008.

    McPhee’s finding does not turn the clock back because the contracts eventually were re-negotiated. But finding the governor guilty of an unfair labor practice stands as a public rebuke of the state’s highest official. Such a censure has a sobering impact. It makes the statement that Federation members’ bargaining rights should be respected.

    McPhee’s ruling directs the state to never repeat its actions again if a similar situation arises. And the state will notify all Federation members that it committed an unfair labor practice so there will be no doubt that Federation members were right and their governor was wrong.”

    Lazio Drops Out of Governor’s Race
    By DAVID M. HALBFINGER

    Former Representative Rick A. Lazio has agreed to have his name removed as the Conservative Party’s candidate for governor, in a decision that bolsters the candidacy of the Republican candidate, Carl P. Paladino.

    Michael @ 18

    Taking Lazio off the Conservative Party line and substituting Paladino (who won the Republican Party nomination) certainly helps Paladino. Maybe Paladino won’t win, but Lazio wasn’t favored to win even if he had won the GOP nomination. In any event, how does Lazio dropping off a minor party ballot position help the Democrats?

    Here is an interesting Poll about Deleware where you have the Marxist Dummocrats Coons leading–
    Monday, September 27, 2010

    It is possible that a write-in campaign by Congressman Mike Castle could hurt Democrat Chris Coons more than Republican Christine O’Donnell in the Delaware campaign for U.S. Senate.

    A new Rasmussen Reports telephone survey of Likely Delaware voters finds Coons with 49% support, while O’Donnell earns 40% of the vote. Castle, a longtime congressman who lost to O’Donnell in the state’s GOP Primary, picks up five percent (5%). Another five percent (5%) remain undecided.

    And here is another Democrat seat where the race is getting closer–
    Monday, September 27, 2010

    Democrat Richard Blumenthal now holds just a five-point lead over Republican Linda McMahon in Connecticut’s race for the U.S. Senate. The latest Rasmussen Reports telephone survey of Likely Voters in the state finds Blumenthal with 50% support and McMahon with 45% when leaners are included. One percent (1%) favor some other candidate, and three percent (3%) are undecided.
    This is the closest the race has been since May when the New York Times detailed in an article how Blumenthal has been embellishing his military record in public statements over the years.

    I don’t give a shit about some of these Big Government R’s…like Castle. I’m glad he lost. I’m a Conservative…a Constitutional Conservative who believes we must immediately stop Deficit Spending and shrink the role & size of Government. I suspect you knew that Michael.

    More proof how crazy Cass Sunstein is…

    Let me explain the division among the conservative legal thinkers. Some conservative legal things like Justice Scalia and Justice Thomas is that the Constitution means what it originally meant. That means that we should understand the document by going through a sort of time machine and capturing the public understanding of the public that ratified the document a century or more than a century ago. So, that is a very distinctive approach which would involve quite radical changes in our existing Constitutional understanding and Justice Thomas is entirely clear on that.

    Can one of the wingnuts on here remind me exactly WHAT the Republicans are doing in their “pledge to f**k America” they just introduced that they didn’t JUST do a few years ago? They had the Presidency and Congress from 2000-2006 (and Presidency from 2006-2008). What exactly are they planning to do NOW that they just didn’t bother to get around to before? And how will they accomplish it with a Democrat President who they’ve all but promised to piss on and ignore fight (filibuster) literally every single piece of legislation. Even IF they get one of their ideas passed in the House (like outlawing gays or Jews, or making blacks slaves again or eliminating all taxes for those making over $1 million a year)…how do they expect to get them passed a President (who’s a secret Muslim from the planet xenon according to the Tea Party)? ROTFLMAO

    It’s JUST SO F**KING FUNNY! You Republicans HAD control of the White AND Congress until just a few months ago…and for 6+ years…and you didn’t do SHIT. Did you secure the Mexico boarder after 9/11 when General Bush was in charge as Commander in Chief? Did you do it when Reagan was President? Did you do it when HW Bush was President? Did you do it when Ford was President? No? So why should I believe you’re do it now?

Or under Nixon? You’ve had decades to implement you policies and you’ve driven us to bankruptcy and YET not done anything you said you would. ROTFLMAO LOL LOL LOL LOL LOL LOL

    You’re saying it’s ALWAYS the Democrats that stopped you from “securing our boarders”? How? Republicans Presidents (like W) were Commander in Chief and could have sent 100,000 troops to the boarder ANYTIME if they wanted. Never even tried. I don’t remember that every happening.

Though Biden has sometimes opposed military action, during the Bosnian War his was the loudest voice in Congress in favor of arming the Muslim minority and encouraging the NATO air strikes against the Serbs.

No compromise with the electorate was the clever taunt with which he disarmed them.

    Disabled Man to Tea Party: ‘Reforming Social Security Would Cut My Lifeline’

    The problem is, Republicans don’t care about the disabled or the poor. They believe in social Darwinism, and think if you can’t afford to live, you don’t have a right to live.

    Tea Party To Disabled Man: ‘Wanna Try 50/50 Or Phone-A-Friend?’

    Tea Party response: “buy some boots with straps”

    Don’t adopt the language of the people who would cut your lifeline. They don’t want to “reform” Social Security, they want to kill it.

    This is the exact same group that mocked a disabled man with Parkinson’s disease. It’s very simple. They just don’t care.

    You’re pleading for sympathy from people who were born without the ability. It’s what makes a social conservative a social conservative in the first place. They’re physically unable to care about your plight in any meaningful way.

    Asking Baggers and their RepubliKan Poodles for compassion is like asking an arsonist for a fire extinguisher.

    Hey Michael…….they….don’t…..care.

    Isn’t it part of conservative orthodoxy that this man’s problems are his problems and that he is actually trying to pass his problems onto the backs of today’s hard working, over taxed, freedom loving constitutional conservative angry white man for something that is his own business?
