Unity 08!

August 26, 2008

From my ‘progressive’ acquaintances, can’t call ’em friends anymore friends hang with ya even if they think you are wrong., on facebook I read and hear about how fabulous the Dem Convention in Colorado is going. I understand the weather is great and that Michelle Obama gave a good speech. Swell.

Here’s a slightly different look:

‘Get over it loser!’ Is a phrase Clinton supporters are apt to hear in the streets….

I’ve gotta tell ya folks, that is not how you build bridges, win over Hillary’s supporters and re-unite a party.  But that’s the kind of thing Hillary’s folks are hearing from BHO’s crowd in Denver this week, and the only way that’s going to stop is if The Chosen One takes the lead and tells them to knock it off’.

Check out the rest. Me? I’ll have a lot more to say later. I’m busy with computer construction and marketing. One thing I will be talking a lot about, as I find it interesting, is the tremendous similarity between how Obamacans, some Hillaristas and yer median RedStater act and think. One thing that Obama’s candidacy has made crystal clear for those with eyes to see is that politics can be a great leveler. The real question is….

Why the level is so low.


Lunatics? Aslum? Or Fascistii in Action.

Here’s the lede:

The Obama campaign staff learned its lesson early in this contest – don’t let those Hillary supporters get loose and start a ruckus. And WHATEVER you do, don’t let them get their hands on a kazoo.’

A superficial read of this puts it in the ha..ha…hah category of Convention news. I have a different take. Wherever I go in the ‘sphere where the Obots have not taken over, which includes every Web 1.0 site except MyDD where Jerome rules with and iron hand and does not allow the fascist Obots to take over, we see story after story of the Obama campaign’s efforts to disenfranchise voters, depress turnout and vilify opponents. He’s running a classic Rovian campaign against Hillary and having success since for some reason The Hill has stopped fighting. Perhaps she’s giving him the rope-a-dope but right now Obama is frantic. His campaign is doing one stupid thing after another. Cages for protestors…..yeah, right. The latest is calling out McSame ’cause A. He’s rich and B. He owns too many houses. Yep.

Nobody every beat a Republican ’cause the ReThug was rich. Most voters are so brain-washed they don’t even give that argument a listen. After all any American can be rich.

And I guess Barry is so delusional that he’s convinced himself that the Rezco thing is all gone and forgotten. Why else would he want to get into a debate with McSame about their respective housing. I can hear McSame now, ‘My opponent wants to make a big deal about how many houses I own. I wonder does he want to talk about the corrupt deal he struck with Tony Rezko to buy his home. I paid for my houses solely out of my pocket. Can the good Senator say the same?’

How’s that shoe leather taste Barry?


Hmmmmmmmmm…….

I was at the RNC in New York in 2004 and do your know the NYC police, at the behest of the Secret Service and the laughably titled Dept. of Homeland Security, had the exact same set up down on the docks. Chain link w/barbed wire. Yet one more thing the Obamanation has  copied from their patrons the Republican Party.

I may need more popcorn.


Whoops…….

Do You Ever Wonder Why the Roads in Your Town are Turning into Gravel?

August 17, 2008

Wonder no more. It’s because ‘some people’ are not paying their fair share of the cost of government. Otherwise known as taxes. I know this story has been in the corporatist press but I thought this post:

Based on IRS records, a recent GAO report indicates that many corporations claimed to owe $0 in U.S. taxes from 1998 – 2005: roughly 28%-53% of large foreign-controlled and 23%-38% of large U.S.-controlled corporations. [The GAO considers a "large" corporation one with at least $250 million in assets or $50 million in gross receipts.

From NoQuarter had a lot more detail and so link to it.

There is a growing opportunity for those of us who are economically literate, a tiny minority, to take back the high ground in the never ending debate about taxes, government and what should be done by same. The ‘conservative’ shills who’ve been preaching the Friedman Lunacy for decades are gob-smacked that the ‘trickle down’ theory has at last been proved to be the utter bullshit that it is. There is a desperate air of ‘now what do we do…’  as the third artificial bubble of ‘asset building’, housing, pops following  the dot.com bubble and ‘financialization’ coming from the morons such as Greenspan who’ve been ‘supervising ‘ our economy. As Ol’ Shakespeare opined, ‘The truth will out…’ and now folks are waking up to the realization that while their real income has declined every year since Nixon under the Republican fantasy machine corporations and very wealthy individuals merely extract whatever amounts of cash they need from the U.S. Treasury, that’s us Homer, in the form of  taxes not paid.

This report points a finger at why you, yeah you Homer, ‘can’t’ have healthcare, good schools, well-maintained roads, safe food and on and on…. The next time some low-info fool tells you, ‘Oh, we can’t afford that…’ about some needed social program tell them the following:

‘Of course we can afford that. If corporations and the uber-rich would pay their fair share of taxes instead of bribing Congress to give them a free pass we’d’ have plenty of money to take care of the real, immediate needs of our society.’

And if they start bloviating tell them this:

‘Surely you are not advocating that some, particularly those best able to pay, should be excused from their social obligation to pay their fair share of the costs they helped create are you?’

More on how your are being screwed solely because you are NOT rich in future posts.


Another One Under the Bus!

August 16, 2008

Under the bus they go,
Their transgression they may not know!
But….
It’s under the bus they go.

The wheels go round an round,
His hectoring voice never ceases to pound!
Fail him and you know…
It’s under the bus you’ll go!

Worst of all is to be one who really can do,
To Barry that’s an insult, an insult to be too blue!
So….
It’s under the bus you will go.

Red is the color he likes the best!
Pay attention to his behest….
Never show what you know,
Or, it’s under the bus you will Go!

I could go on like this all night. Barry is such rich mine of material for satire it’s just ridiculous. But….

You guessed it.

Not as ridiculous as this.

Still think Barkey is a Democrat?
