“The David Goldstein Show” tonight on Newsradio 710-KIRO

It’s New Years Eve, and I can’t think of a better way to celebrate than to stay home tonight, turn on the radio, and tune in to “The David Goldstein Show” tonight from 7PM to 10PM on Newsradio 710-KIRO. Subject to change, here are the topics for tonight’s show:

7PM: What will 2007 bring us? I’ll be making my predictions for the new year. Call in and give me yours.

8PM: Are you drinking and driving tonight? Well don’t. Sgt. Monica Hunter of the Washington State Patrol will join me for the hour to talk about the patrol’s stepped up DUI enforcement efforts this holiday weekend, and what you can expect if you’re pulled over and blow a .08. (It ain’t pretty.) We’ll also dispel a few popular myths about how to fool the breathalyzer.

9PM: Gen. JC Christian welcomes the end of the times. Gen. JC Christian of the far right-wing religious blog Jesus’ General comes back on the show to talk about the unique way he and his family celebrate the New Year, and to clue us in on his design proposal for the George W. Bush Presidential Library, and his plans to use robots to defeat Iran. Really.

Also, fellow HA blogger Will may call in from time to time with a live update on New Years Eve revelry from various Seattle hotspots. Won’t that be fun?

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

If you’re not too hung over, tune in to 710-KIRO tomorrow afternoon from 4PM to 7PM, when I’ll be filling in for Ron & Don.

    Roger Rabbit’s Suggested New Year’s Resolutions for Repubicans

    1. We won’t get more than 3 DUIs this year.
    2. We won’t torture more than 3 people this year.
    3. We won’t start more than 3 wars this year.
    4. We won’t vote for more than 3 morally challenged imbeciles this year.
    5. We won’t fuck more than 3 horses this year.

    Hey, that’s not too hard, right? I mean, let’s face it, this isn’t a list of great accomplishments, but we all have to start with baby steps and better late than never.

    When you were filling in for Ross, you kept your voice pitched lower and steady. But, on your own show, you get kind of up, down and all over the place. It’s nice to passionate, but it is easier to listen to a steady voice on the radio.

    Just a suggestion.

    I keep listening (expect one night when it got to be too much!)

    Throughout the invasion and occupation of Iraq, there were a number of moments when I was convinced a grave error was taking place. Among them was the dissolution of the Iraqi army, the failure to have enough troops in place for an effective occupation, etc.

    But one of the biggest was when the Army finally captured Saddam and it was announced he was going to be tried by the Iraqi government.

    Iraqi government? At the time none existed. And there was no Iraqi law violated. As long as Saddam was alive and in Iraq, he would continue to be a destabalizing influence.

    So why didn’t Bush just direct the army to turn him over to the Kuwaitis? They could have tried him for war crimes, for kidnapping and murdering Iraqi civilians, etc., and then afterwards, if Iraq had a stable government, and if the Kuwaitis wanted to, they could consider turning him over to the Iraqis (or Iranians) for additional trials.

    But apparantly Bush doesn’t think in pragmatics. He missed history class when they discussed how the British preserved an empire for 400 + years. He figures he knows better.

    It was a really good show tonight. Except for the state trooper . . . I have a friend who beat the DUI rap by refusing everything. By the time she (yes, a woman)took it, her blood alcohol level was significantly reduced.

    BTW, that particular friend knew the ropes because she worked in the court system. She simply refused. Don’t recall if they booked her . . . I’ll have to reconnect with her and ask. Whatever, she doesn’t have a record . . .

    Throwing Away More Lives to Justify Throwing Away Lives

    The White House continues clinging to the discredited argument that its Iraq fiasco has something to do with terrorism:

    “Asked about the 3,000 figure, deputy White House press secretary Scott Stanzel said Sunday that … ‘The brave men and women of the U.S. military are fighting extremists in order to stop them from attacking on our soil again[.]’ …

    “‘Last year, America continued its mission to fight and win the war on terror …,’ Bush said in [a] statement released from his ranch in Crawford, Texas ….”


    Roger Rabbit Commentary: It appears the plan now is to squander more American lives in Iraq, which has NOTHING to do with preventing terrorist attacks on America, in order to justify squandering 3,000 American lives in Iraq, which had NOTHING to do with 9/11, WMDs, or anything else. What a load of horse-hooey! Folks, this bullshit isn’t going to end until Bush leaves office.

    And try to keep him from skull fucking all them when their bodies are shipped back to Arlington.

    Ever wonder why we don’t allow pictures of the caskets? That’s right. Old Dick prying open the caskets to skull fuck the recently dead soldiers would not be as easily explained as that shooting an old lawyer in the face escapade.

    Granddad! Oh sweet Gandpapa!

    I hope I am living up to your standards!! I know that my old man disappointed you! He refused to sacrifice the life and limbs of tens of thousands of soldiers for our honor… and bank accounts.

    While I acknowledge that my Father, your son, killed thousands in the interest of our corporate friends here and abroad… he refused to commit America to an endless quagmire of unending death and loss of the American public treasure!

    He was a fool! He actually felt that there were standards of decency that could not be crossed! He felt that, ultimately, the Bush legacy could not include plunging America into its final nightmare of international shame, unending war, and decline to debtor nation status. What do we care? We will never live poor. We are untouchable.

    I hate my Father! And I love him!

    I must prevail no matter the loss of life, no matter the bankruptcy of America… no matter how much I must lie. I must prevail.. because… I am the Chosen One of God!

    I love you Grandpapa!

    I will prevail.

    No matter the cost.

    And Bandar Bush, my Brother from Saudi Arabia agrees.

    No matter the cost. No matter the facts.

    No matter the reality.

    I know that there are idiots who will support me.

    We will rape and pillage those idiots later.

    They are as stupid as I am. They are just not as rich as I am.

    Heh heh.

    Okay, New Year’s Weekend is a bad time to have a funeral. How inconvenient (inconsiderate?) of Pres. Ford to die with such bad timing!

    Last week we were wondering how Ford’s funeral would compare with Reagan’s. Now we know.

    Lots of Democrats sent their regrets, which is unfortunate.

    But the list of Republicans who chose not to appear is mind-boggling. Leading the list is Pres. W. Bush, who felt his Christmas vaction in Texas was more important and couldn’t be interrupted. Of course, perhaps the news that Ford considered Bush’s Iraqi invasion idiotic might have had somthing to do with it. Bush is known for carrying a grudge, and having a snit whenever someone dissagress with him. But gee wiz, would one funeral for a former Republican President kill him?

    But he wasn’t the only one. Even Rumsfield and James Baker III, who owed much of their careers to Ford, didn’t make it despite being honerary pallbearers.

    And yet, Fox News skewered only Democractic non-attenders, criticizing the incoming Sentate Majority Leader for not cancelling a working trip to South America with four other Senators, with commentator Mike Gallagher saying “”He’s the incoming Senate majority leader, for crying out loud, and he can’t even show a little bit of respect?”

    Typical of Fox News. A Democrat is faulted for not changing his work schedule to honor a Republican, but a Republican gets a free pass for not interrupting his vacation.

    Skagit at 25: It’s a little late for this advice to do ay good, but…

    Refusing to take the breath tests usually doesn’t help. You can be convicted of DWI based merely on the officer’s description of your impairment. Technically, they are two seperate offenses, one is driving with tyour BAL above .08, the other is driving while impaired. If they can’t get you on the blood alchohol level, then they can get you on the other.

    What happens if you don’t take the test is you get your driver’s licesnse suspended – right then. Even if they prosecute you for driving while impaired, and you are acquitted, you still loose your license. And you can’t even get permission to drive just to work and back. I’ve forgotten how long it lasts, but its a lot more than the DWI.

    I have to admit I rather liked Cheney’s eulogy at the Capitol Rotunda episode of the Gerald Ford Traveling Funeral and Flying Circus. Maybe it was partially because he spoke after Ted Stevens, who repeatedly flubbed his ghost-written lines and obviously didn’t give a shit. Cheney actually showed a trace or two of humanity, and spoke of his former boss as someone he evidently knew well and admired. Too bad, of course, that he didn’t learn anything from him.

    Here’s an interesting article by David Sirota concerning the path Progressives should take when the Dems., as they inevitably will, attempt to reneg on the Progressive ideas that got them into office. We need to keep their weak feet to the fire, like we did with Cantwell, to get some action.

    The lesson of Sirota’s article is that the Progressive movement can USE the Dems., but we are not tied to them.
