Sarah Palin compares herself to Ronald Reagan

If only it was Reagan from 1948........Before he went batshit crazy.
Inspiring speech, if only the Reaganites would listen to it.
Very relevant to today's Political/Economic climate. Just watch.

Florida Senate Debate: Rubio to raise SS age

Flip Flopping "Independent" Charlie Crist, Marco Rubio who want's to raise the Social Security age, or Kendrick Meek. Rubio is painted as a conservative but his voting record does not reflect that. He lied about "never having voted for a tax increase" Rubio is for extending the Bush tax cuts for the rich while taking away social security for the elderly, and embraces the same failed "Reaganomics" of the last 10 years. Choice is clear Kendrick Meek

Do bailed out banks, BP, and TeaParty candidates Ad's belong on a Progessive blog?

This is a Progressive Blog??

Recently, what was once my favorite blog in all the blogosphere, John Amato's Crooks & Liars, underwent an overhaul. Everyone raved about how great"The new C&L" was. But like the the child in the "The Emperor's new clothes", I saw it was garbage. The old site had integrity and a great layout.
The new site is a train wreck three column job, with 2 columns dedicated, to corporate sponsors and wrapped in the flag.
The kind we blog about being evil. Bailed out banks, BP, and even Teabagger Christine O'Donnell. (I keep expecting to see a Xe ad there next) When I had the balls to comment I thought the new website design sucked on many levels, when I suggested C&L had gone "Corporate", I was personally attacked for my web skills. (HaHahahaha), by an attack dog named Andy K. Coward that he is. He has a "Protected account" so I cannot even block his cowardly personal attacks on my Web savvy. After 8 years of posting I was treated like a troll. His attack: Assumptions that I was too stupid to use Mozilla and Adblock. (HaHaHaHaHaHa)
I am a major contributor at CNET and beta test more web apps than you will ever read about. As for Jane Hamsher at FDL. at least she has a decently laid out site and does not run ad's from the same scumbags we blog about. She could even teach you a thing or 2 about basic web design principles.
I now do enable my adblock at C&L because a banner ad at C&L, ran a malicious script. Glad you got that upgraded bandwidth John. Your readership is at it's lowest level ever. I am posting 2 ad's from C&L today. No webby award this year. I hope it was worth it.
C&L Upgrade=Fail. Protected Posters ability to reason/act civil to dissenting viewpoint=Fail.
burningbush and the facts=win
There are still good posts and of course Bluegal.
But John you have to have some say over what ad's run on your site, or the site just looks stupid. (When I do turn off adblock and see a BP ad, I throw up in my mouth a little)
Oh and Andy K: Your taste in music sucks so even your latenight posts blow.

Dirty Stinkiin' Libruls

Joe gets up at 6 a.m. and fills his coffeepot with water to prepare his morning coffee. The water is clean and good because some tree-hugging liberal fought for minimum water-quality standards. With his first swallow of water, he takes his daily medication. His medications are safe to take because some stupid commie liberal fought to insure their safety and that they work as advertised. All but $10 of his medications are paid for by his employer’s medical plan because some liberal union workers fought their employers for paid medical insurance – now Joe gets it too.

He prepares his morning breakfast, bacon and eggs. Joe’s bacon is safe to eat because some girly-man liberal fought for laws to regulate the meat packing industry.In the morning shower, Joe reaches for his shampoo. His bottle is properly labeled with each ingredient and its amount in the total contents because some crybaby liberal fought for his right to know what he was putting on his body and how much it contained. Joe dresses, walks outside and takes a deep breath. The air he breathes is clean because some environmentalist wacko liberal fought for laws to stop industries from polluting our air. He walks to the subway station for his government-subsidized ride to work. It saves him considerable money in parking and transportation fees because some fancy-pants liberal fought for affordable public transportation, which gives everyone the opportunity to be a contributor. Joe begins his workday. He has a good job with excellent pay, medical benefits, retirement, paid holidays and vacation because some lazy liberal union members fought and died for these working standards. Joe’s employer pays these standards because Joe’s employer doesn’t want his employees to call the union. If Joe is hurt on the job or becomes unemployed, he’ll get a worker compensation or unemployment check because some stupid liberal didn’t think he should lose his home because of his temporary misfortune.

It’s noontime and Joe needs to make a bank deposit so he can pay some bills. Joe’s deposit is federally insured by the FSLIC because some godless liberal wanted to protect Joe’s money from unscrupulous bankers who ruined the banking system before the Great Depression. Joe has to pay his Fannie Mae-underwritten mortgage and his below-market federal student loan because some elitist liberal decided that Joe and the government would be better off if he was educated and earned more money over his lifetime.

Joe is home from work. He plans to visit his father this evening at his farm home in the country. He gets in his car for the drive. His car is among the safest in the world because some America-hating liberal fought for car safety standards. He arrives at his boyhood home. His was the third generation to live in the house financed by Farmers’ Home Administration because bankers didn’t want to make rural loans. The house didn’t have electricity until some big-government liberal stuck his nose where it didn’t belong and demanded rural electrification. He is happy to see his father, who is now retired. His father lives on Social Security and a union pension because some wine-drinking, cheese-eating liberal made sure he could take care of himself so Joe wouldn’t have to. Joe gets back in his car for the ride home, and turns on a radio talk show. The radio host keeps saying that liberals are bad and conservatives are good. He doesn’t mention that the beloved Republicans have fought against every protection and benefit Joe enjoys throughout his day. Joe agrees: “We don’t need those big-government liberals ruining our lives! After all, I’m a self-made man who believes everyone should take care of themselves, just like I have" H/T to poster at C&L whose name I neglected to get.

Think the U.S. promotes Democracy? Think Again

The United States only supports Democracy when it benefits
U.S. Corporate interests. If a Democratically elected leader want's
to help his people instead of the Multinational Corporations,
we take them out, with Economic Hit-men or actual Hit-men.
We will take a Corporate friendly Dictator
over a people friendly Government...every time. History is a bitch.

Florida: A right to work State


Been a while since I posted. I may be losing my Internet access and my Apt.
Unemployment is investigating me because they say they were not informed I was going to school full-time. (They were.)
I am now going though an adjudication process
that has been going on for a month. Meanwhile no payments.
I was advised they would "Send an email to expedite the decision" , and I can expect to wait 2 weeks, and then maybe be told I still have to wait.
There are no jobs. Retraining does not create jobs.
Congress does not want to extend unemployment benefits.
Our leader's obstruct and twiddle their thumbs while the Salvation Army overflows...
