It may be Christmas Eve, but it sure as hell won’t be a silent night on “The David Goldstein Show” from 7PM to 10PM tonight on Newsradio 710-KIRO. I don’t have any scheduled guests at the moment, but I’ve got a number of topics I’m just itching to discuss, including:

  • Is it time for a state income tax? Republicans complain that Gov. Gregoire’s new budget will result in budget deficits several years out, but our sales tax heavy tax system would produce long term deficits even if we freeze the size of state government. At what point do we face reality and either reform our tax structure (the most regressive in the nation) or just simply accept our destiny as the Alabama of the West?
  • Is this a Christian nation, or just a nation of Christians? And either way, why do so many politically prominent Christians feel so comfortable getting so damn pissy about it? Locally, mega-church preacher and Republican activist Pastor Joe Fuiten describes Jews as a bunch of money-grubbing merchants who should thank Jesus for their yuletide profits… and barely anybody bats an eye. Nationally, Rep. Virgil Goode (R-VA) warns that if we don’t reform immigration “there will likely be many more Muslims elected to office.” Heaven forfend.
  • Who’s afraid of the big bad Rossi? For two years now we’ve been hearing from the WA GOP about how they’re going to get revenge for the 2004 gubernatorial election, which they claim was stolen, but which actually turned out to be an excruciatingly close tie that broke just barely for Gregoire, in turn breaking the hearts of Republicans who came oh-so-close. First it was Ron Sims who was supposed to pay the piper, and I-912 was supposed to be a shot across the bow. Then Mike McGavick was supposed to benefit from a statewide backlash. (Yeah. How’d that work out for you?) And now a new poll shows Gregoire besting Rossi 51 percent to 40 percent. Ouch. So, is Dino Rossi a one hit wonder, or the next governor of Washington?

Tune in tonight (or listen to the live stream) and give me a call: 1-877-710-KIRO (5476).

PROGRAMMING NOTE:
I’ll be filling in for Dave Ross and Ron Reagan all week, from 9AM to 1PM.

ROSSI IS THE BIAW’S MAN. NO NEED TO GO ANY FURTHER THAN THAT.

THUMBS DOWN.

2. Roger Rabbit spews:

Expect 2 more years of whining from the Rossiphiles, who were hoping (nay, PRAYING) for cuts in state services (especially for roads and vulnerable kids) and tax breaks for people who already get so many tax breaks the state cuts them a check.

3. Roger Rabbit spews:

Of course it’s time for a state income tax! For picture of GOPers playing with our state tax system, click here:

With Rossi’s business partners haveing done jail time you’d think the Repubs would be shying away from him.
Any chance there’s another ethical problem for the R’s lurking out there?

6. Jim spews:

Don’t expect too much reality from the Dinoites OR the Bushies.
1. We live in a low tax state. Compare the total tax to total income and we are 28th. Down from 27th recently. By the way, this is the only realistic or honest way to figure tax bite.
2. We will never see an income tax. It would take a constitutional amendment and everybody who voted for it in the legislative branch would get hammered.
3. I enjoyed telling the Dinoites that I liked him until I found out that he voted for a LARGER tax increase as a state senator than what would have been overturned by the initiative. I always got this vacant expression that accompanied the gears grinding.
4. The Bushies are just about as Christian as my dog. 49% increase in the national debt in 5.5 years isn’t exactly a Christian way to do things.
5. The remaining Bushies will NEVER abandon him. If they did, they would essentially admit that they bought a load, hook, line, and sinker. Worst President in the history of the entire country. By a LOOOOONG way.

7. Mike Barer spews:

David, normally I would e-mail you but I could not find your address, this article raises a ire about Jimmy Carter’s book criticizing Israel. I thought it would be very topical for your blog.

The best Christmas Gifts are prayers because they bring God’s Presents! God Bless and please enjoy Christmas and the Holidays!

9. Roger Rabbit spews:

@4 Any chance there’s not?

10. Roger Rabbit spews:

MERRY CHRISTMAS, TROLLFUCKS!!!*
And HAPPY HOLIDAYS to all my liberal friends.

* Now go fuck yourselves, and fuck the armadillos you rode in on, too!

11. Roger Rabbit spews:

Redneck: Here’s a New Year’s Resolution suggestion for you:

Pay your gambling debt!

12. Roger Rabbit spews:

@7 Click on “Goldy” just below the headline of this thread. That’ll bring up his e-mail address. If that doesn’t work, type in goldy@horsesass.org

13. My Left Foot spews:

Merry Christmas, JCH, MTR, MWS.

It was bashing you guys to death this year.

Here’s to more of the same this coming year.

Best Wishes.

PS. I guess we beat JCH into submission.

YOU JUST SUGGESTED THE PERFECT WAY TO SELL AN INCOME TAX. AT THE END OF TAX RESTRUCTURING, WE SHOULD STILL RANK 27TH OR 28TH IN TAX BITE. OR HOW ABOUT 25TH? RIGHT IN THE MIDDLE OF THE PACK.

THE GOAL OF AN INCOME TAX AND RESTRUCTURING IS FAIRNESS AND THE ELIMINATION OF REGRESSIVITY.

15. Roger Rabbit spews:

@6(5) Not merely worst president; criminal president.

16. skagit spews:

For what it’s worth, you’ve changed my mind. I’m now for a state income tax but it better be fair!

17. Mike Webb SUCKS spews:

Merry Christmas Moonbat!s

Mike: It’s typical for a Moonbat! to wait until the libtard MSM awakens to facts. We on the right (neocons), already posted this over a week ago that which a Furballette such as you finally comprehends. It’s okay though at least you found it. People (term used loosely) like YLB – Clueless discount it because the article was first published in the WA Times. He (YLB-C) discounts many truths because facts hurt the libtard mind.

Congrats Mike for finding truth!

19. Mike Webb SUCKS spews:

Moonbat!s, your Al Qaeda friends are calling.

http://blogs.abcnews.com/theblotter/2006/12/al_qaeda_sends_.html

“The first is that you aren’t the ones who won the midterm elections, nor are the Republicans the ones who lost. Rather, the Mujahideen — the Muslim Ummah’s vanguard in Afghanistan and Iraq — are the ones who won, and the American forces and their Crusader allies are the ones who lost,” Zawahri said, according to a full transcript obtained by ABC News.

Zawahri calls on the Democrats to negotiate with him and Osama bin Laden, not others in the Islamic world who Zawahri says cannot help.

“And if you don’t refrain from the foolish American policy of backing Israel, occupying the lands of Islam and stealing the treasures of the Muslims, then await the same fate,” he said.”

Yes Moonbat!s, negotiate with Terrorists. I posts weeks ago the commentary of jihadists on the naivete of Nancy Pelosi from Investors Business Daily and idiots like YLB-Clueless dismissed it. Well here is proof positive evidence Al Qaeda likes Moonbat!s.

20. Mike Webb SUCKS spews:

Since Moonbat!s hate Israel, I expect some Moonbat! to take this offer seriously.

21. YOS LIB BRO spews:

MWS – HAPPY HOLIDAYS. I SAY THAT BECAUSE YOU’RE SO “DOWN WITH THE JEWS” LIKE ALL THOSE CRAPHEAD LGF’ERS.

WHO KNOWS YOU COULD BE JEWISH YOURSELF.

ANYWAY HAPPY HOLIDAYS.

LOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOSER!!!!!

22. Roger Rabbit spews:

19 So now you losers get your political analysis from Al Qaeda? Figures.

23. Mike Webb SUCKS spews:

Furball: Al Qaeda posted all over the world November 8th you guys won because of them. Did You forget the Iraq War memo from the DNCC? Facts hurt the libtard mind!

24. Dan Rather Jr. spews:

Dad, why do you post under so many different names? The “moonbats” aren’t that dumb.

25. Mike Webb SUCKS spews:

So YLB – Clueless, thanks for admitting you disklike Jews. We knew you and Pastor Joe Fuiten were cut from the same cloth!

26. Roger Rabbit spews:

23 Same as saying FDR won 4 times because of Adolf Hitler.

27. Roger Rabbit spews:

Why do wingnuts hate REAL Americans? I.e., the working class who BUILT this country? And fought its wars? Why do wingnuts love war, killing, and torture so much? WHY did a ex-candidate say we need a terrorist attack to help Republicans win elections?

“Congratulations Speaker Pelosi, now let the bombs fall where they may. My prediction: terror attack on domestic soil passenger aircraft within the next six months. Casualties in the 2-300 range. And, unfortunately, maybe that’s just what we need. … Posted by FullContactPolitics at November 8, 2006 10:52 AM” http://tinyurl.com/ydlfwu

But the really PRECIOUS frosting on the cake is these assholes call themselves “Christians” and pretend to be holier than us.

28. Roger Rabbit spews:

should read “a GOP ex-candidate”

29. Dan Rather spews:

What the hell. Where do they come up w-ith month? This guy is an idiot. It will be more like 8-12 months and the deaths will be around 4 – 5,000.

31. Dan Rather Jr. spews:

Dad, can’t you take at least one day off? Or do they pay you overtime to work Christmas? I thought you were so big on being the “good Christian.”

32. Roger Rabbit spews:

30 According to my math, you’re 16.67 times the idiot he is. (5000/300 = 16.67)

33. Roger Rabbit spews:

I have 3,127 relatives visiting today, and my burrow isn’t very big, so there’s a lot of pushing and shoving down here today.

Ah son. I have plenty of days off since I got caught lying. I was just doing what liberals do and it caught up to me.

35. Dan Rather Jr. spews:

Dad, have you been drinking again?

36. Roger Rabbit spews:

While we’re preacher-bashing on this site, here’s a delectable little item about Kenneth Copeland (of Oral Roberts University origin):

“Copeland Signs contract for new Jet!

“As we reported here last year, Kenneth and Gloria Copeland have been seeking donations from their partners to buy themselves not one but two new Cessna Citation X jets. Well, glory to God the partners have come through once again! Copeland announced last week that he has signed a contract for the first of these jets. … The cost of this state of the art private jet is approximately $20 million.

“This will only be the latest addition to Copeland’s private air force. Along with the new Citation X, the Copeland’s also have a Cessna Citation 550 Bravo (valued at $3.4 million), PLUS a Grumman Gulfstream II (worth $4.5 million) AND a Cessna Golden Eagle AND a Beech E-55 AND assorted lesser aircraft AND his own airport.”

Hey, maybe I should get into the faith-healing business too, so I can get met one of these rides: http://citationx.cessna.com/home.chtml

38. Roger Rabbit spews:

“me” not “met”

39. Roger Rabbit spews:

Hmmm … this guy who outed Sticky-Fingers Copeland seems pretty hip. Go here http://www.apostasywatch.com/ and click on “About Me” and scroll down to where he talks about how, after he was “born again,” God “called” him to be a car salesman.

40. Roger Rabbit spews:

Now who woulda thunk God wants anyone to be a fucking car salesman? Or a fucking congressman? Or a fucking lawyer? On the other hand, God wants everyone to be a RABBIT — She must, because She makes so many of us!

41. Roger Rabbit spews:

I wonder if Pastor Fuiten plans to buy himself a shiny new Citation X after he kicks the retired preachers out of their homes and sells the land to developers for $20 million?

42. Roger Rabbit spews:

After all, we can’t expect a Messenger of God to travel by fucking commercial airline, can we? That’s beneath their station …

43. Roger Rabbit spews:

Hey, I have an idea! How about if Fuiten grows a pair of these? They’re cost effective and there’s no waiting list!* http://tinyurl.com/ye29uc

* Just kidding — more Ann Coulter humor!

44. righton spews:

roger;
weak att;empt to smear Fuiten; yeah, sounds like Copeland not good (and i’ve watched him , ugh)…but to compare his “ministry” to Fuiten’s fails the logic test; oh yeah, i guess both are ministers so both must be bad dudes…

45. Roger Rabbit spews:

45 Let’s start with Fuiten’s attempt to evict elderly ministers of his own fucking church from their homes, and work downward from there.

46. Roger Rabbit spews:

44 (continued) Besides, why are YOU suddenly getting so squeamish about SMEARING people? You assholes do it all day, every day, all year long. Why should you have a monopoly on smearing people? Republicans want a monopoly on every fucking thing!
