Check it out. It might change your view of a few things….
Yep, I was on the phone to India while getting ‘support’ for my installation of MS Small Business 2007 and you will never, never, believe how I finally got it ‘installed’.
Don’t forget to vote and don’t forget to stay tuned afterwards to track what is being done…
In your name.
The translation of this song, interestingly it’s about separation, is here.
…that’s what the big dukeout between ‘Bankruptcy Bill’ Biden and ‘I can see Russia’ Palin. The both lied their well tailored asses off. Neither addressed and issues in anything even close to a substantive way.
I do give Palin the ‘win’ as she made Joe look like what he is. Past it and bored.
Will be watching the polls this week. Obama seems to be pulling ahead but…..
It ain’t over yet.
And no I have no confidence that Obamba will be bringing the troops home from Iraq anytime soon.
That ain’t gonna happen.
to the ‘bailout’ proposed by the corrupt, rotten ‘leader$hip’ of the now twice damned Pelosi and ‘Sellout’ Reid as they, along with ‘The Magic Man’ stoop to do Leader Bush’s bidding.
Here is what she said today on the floor of what we now laughingly call, ‘The People’s House’.
Washington D.C.– Today (Sept. 29, 2008) Congresswoman Barbara Lee delivered the following statement on the House floor in opposition to the financial bailout bill considered today. The Congresswoman voted against the bill, which failed by a vote of 205-228.
“Thank you Madame Speaker and thank you Mr. Frank, the Chairman of the Financial Services Committee, for his efforts to improve the administration’s $700 billion blank check proposal.
“As a former member of the House Financial Services Committee for eight years, I can tell you that the situation we find ourselves in is the direct result of the deregulation happy, turn a blind- eye approach of this administration and its allies in Congress.
“Now we see the horrific price of these reckless deregulation policies. More than 600,000 Americans have lost their jobs since January. People need jobs to obtain credit and to pay their rent. They need jobs to pay their mortgages or to put money in their 401k or retirement account. Millions of people are living paycheck to paycheck, if they have a paycheck.
“Home foreclosures are skyrocketing, and home values are plunging, banks are failing and we are still spending more than $10 billion every month on a war in Iraq that should never have been waged.
“So there is no question that we are confronting an economic and financial crisis.
“But I’m convinced that this bailout plan is not the solution to this mess.
“First, it does little to address the underlying problem – the foreclosure crisis. We need a moratorium on foreclosures and bankruptcy reform to help people stay in their homes.
“Second, this bill should be paid for by the high-flying industry that created this problem. $700 billion should not be given to Wall Street and the Bush Administration unless those who cause this mess pay for it. We should also prohibit the tax deductibility -and my bill the Income Equity Act (HR 3876) would do this across the board – of executive compensation in any company where the highest paid corporate officer is paid more than 25 the times the pay of a bailed-out company’s lowest-paid worker.
“And third, we need an economic stimulus package to deal with the crushing reality of the recession that is hitting people hard and growing every day.
“I cannot vote to reward those predatory and subprime lenders who are creating such havoc in the lives of millions of Americans.
“There is a better way.”
Yep and that way requires hard work, years of it which probably puts it beyond the reach of the Libertarian punks who think we have friends in the ‘Democrat’ Party. Who think Obama is about ‘change’.
We do have some friends in the party but Pelosi…multimillionaire Pelosi ain’t one of them.
…still some thinking to do but nope I have not changed my opinion about.
The ‘Democrat’ Party
So called ‘fellow progressives’
The real battle is about to begin and I intend to work so that it is not for the crumbs from our masters tables. The nation is on the brink of the abyss with few of talent or principle to lead us. Indeed the times call for a new paradigm.
One sans such ‘leaders’ as George W. Bush, Barrack Obama, Nancy Pelosi, Diane Feinstein, Harry Reid. And no we don’t need suc as Marko Moulitas, Chris Bowers, Jeralyn, Josh Marshall and the rest of the self-appointed, now discredited, ‘leaders’ of Left Blogistan.
Look for changes here soon.
Under the bus they go,
Their transgression they may not know!
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!
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.
Still think Barkey is a Democrat?
Is this site operated by The Denver Group. You will be hearing about them once the convention starts. Probably you will be hearing a lot.
Just keep in mind that according to it’s rules the Democratic Party despite what Obama and the corporatist press who so love him are acting like has not, in fact, elected a nominee. No voter by the delegates has been taken. None.
Latest reports have a haggard Howard Dean not looking very well and seeming to have lost quite a bit of weight. Obama was feeling good enough to play golf today as Russia invaded Georgia and McSame and The Hill were on the campaign trail. The HIll campaigning for Obama.
My personal opinion rendered without any satisfaction is that the wheels are going to come off the Convention ‘Unity Train’. There tension and actual hysteria are building. I’m not even going to report what some are saying the Obama campaign or it’s workers are doing. Not unless arrests are made…which is a possibility.
Old fashioned smash-mouth politics more akin to the 30s that ‘Yes we can!’ so hang on to yer TeeBee remote and stay tuned here also.
Flash Update: Here’s a little something I just tripped over…. So the next time I start ranting about what a lousy campaigner Barky is just think back to this little episode. Or you might find Tweety playing the tape and chortling about what a frikin’ Clown the Barkster is but that will not happen until he does become the nominee. If he does.
…..yeah, the revolution will not be televised. Indeed, there looks to be no revolution. With Barky calling for a non-vote Democratic Convention, he won’t get that predicts I, and McSame being…well, more of the same I suppose you could vote for Nader or Barr but neither are viable let’s face it. Sister Beezlebub still has a shot moreso every time Barky sticks his foot in his mouth and hops around going Uh…Uh…Muh! Currently the Bark-O-Meter has him at 1.5 hops per week. But enough of the cheap shots.
The real problem sits on ‘The HIll’ like a horrific knot of toads in human form. 535 elected representatives of the people.
Yep, in situation, after issue, compounded by crisis we see that the legislative branch of our government is stuffed to the gills with folks who are one of three things:
Corrupt…the biggest faction. Politicians are trained early that it’s all about the Benjamins as our ‘system’ rewards those who get elected and under the current system you need lots of B’s to get elected…
Stupid…plenty of those after all if you’re buying a Congressperson you don’t need one that’s smart. Just one that loves to follow orders.
Nuts….Yeah, barking mad. These are the ones found in a hotel room with hookers and coke or an underage boy. Significant fraction….
So what to do. First up is very simple.
Understand that the level of corruption is now at unprecedented levels. Levels no mere change in ‘party’ will fix. The job is a wholescale clean up similar to Hercules and the Augean Stables. Ever read that one? You should it’s not really about what it seems. Yeah, get real. No one candidate is going to ‘save’ us folks. Most adults realize reality don’t work that way but….
People want to believe.
If you and I don’t get off our asses and take back our government the future will be very bleak. The tipping point on many problems affecting our very survival as a society is near. I assert that the tools to fix those problems which threaten us most are also hand. Requiring only affordable amounts of money and some intelligent leadership. But with a government composed of the corrupt, the stupid and the barking mad we are not going to be able to use those tools.
What to do?
Look around join up with like minded folks. Stop talking and start doing. You will be noticing some changes around here as I ‘renovate’ my new primary residence. And no I don’t care what the Congressional mortgage lending ‘bail out’ bill says, it’s amazingly stupid go look it up, about how to treat ‘primary’ vs. ‘secondary’ residences.
One signpost to a new way is the widget in the upper right sidebar called: ‘Accountability Money Bomb’.
This takes you to a spot where you can contribute to a fascinating group headed by Jane Hamscher and a bunch of right wing folks. Yep, wingers and progressives…together. Seems there is common cause to be made by all Americans in the face of the Congress’s gutting the 4th Amendment. Here is the link to the statement of purpose from StrangeBedFellows the ad hoc group just beginning to get some traction. I will be blogging about this more as the idea of ‘Accountability for the Asylum (Congress)’ resonates with me.
Hope you will hang around as I am planning some extensive remodeling here and I hope you will find it interesting.
