Why I’m Sure the Pew Research Poll re: TPP Approval in the US is a Fraudulent POS

I was intending to write about my "poll" of Princeton, NJ residents that I conducted yesterday, under a decidedly different title, but when I got home, last night, stumbled across the following: Read more about Why I’m Sure the Pew Research Poll re: TPP Approval in the US is a Fraudulent POS

“Makers and Takers:” They're Projecting Again!

I found a segment on MCNBC's Up With Steve Kornacke show revealing for what it did not say. The segment started off with a clip from a Recent Town Hall of John McCain's. Senator McCain took a question from a woman who said, with more than a little emotion. Read more about “Makers and Takers:” They're Projecting Again!

Leaky Koch Disease

Departments: 

So an insider has unceremoniously dumped a number of internal documents from the Heartland Institute, a Koch front group. And it's a doozy. People are making a fuss over the "controversy" based climate denialism, but that's so obvious, it's not what intrigued me. Read more about Leaky Koch Disease

Obamabots On the Attack

On the Open Salon version of my previous entry, some right-winger who supports Obama kept trying to lay the blame for next year's results on the left for failing to properly support the candidate who has done far more to pass the Republicans' agenda than any GOP office-holder could have.

Best in Class . . . and a Blue Ribbon for Unintended Situational Irony

Seen at a local fair.
Yay! This is the best 9/11 since 9/11!
Be sure to light the candle to celebrate!
After we've all had a slice, maybe we can give a bullhorn to a Texas rooster so he can climb all over it and sing cock-a-doodle doo!
Cock-a-doodle doo!
BEST IN CLASS!

If only we were in an Administration where this would be funny....

I wonder if they really don't see how the side they're on helps Rove and his gang more than anyone presently under the bus....

Re: Internet Operations -- For Immediate and Aggressive Implementation

CONFIDENTIAL -- EYES ONLY

Hello Gang,

You've all been working hard, and it's paying off. Obama's numbers are plummeting as I type this. Congratulations all around. But we can't afford to be complacent now.

Given the Rusty treatment: Banned from FDL

Cross-posted from progressive-independence.org.

Earlier today I posted a diary at FDL in what was a continuation of an argument on morality in politics. A few minutes ago I responded to a comment in another thread only to find that the comment in question was hidden pending moderator approval, a sure sign that I've been banned. And just as was done to Rusty1776, my entire account has been designated as spam and my entries hidden from view. Read more about Given the Rusty treatment: Banned from FDL

It is Immoral Not to Challenge Obama and the Democrats in 2012

I seem to recall that someone, late last month, posted an entry arguing that it is immoral for Democrats not to run a primary challenge against Barry Obama in 2012, in light of the things he's done to institutionalize Bush-Cheney crimes. (Glenn Greenwald chronicled the latest violation of the Constitution by Obama on his own blog, which you can read here).

Will Georgia Be The Next Show Me Your Papers State?

Americard by Ian Geldar
In Georgia legislation has already passed the House which out-does Arizona for pure spite, and cracker meanness. GA's Brown Codes, as some are calling them, would...

  • codify the racist slur "illegal alien" into state law
  • make it a felony (1-5 years in prison) to look for a job with any false ID. Second offense 3 to 15 years.
  • make it a felony (3-15 years) if that ID was of an actual person, living or dead
  • make it a misdemeanor (up to 1 year in prison) to give an undocumented person a ride, a felony for more than 7.
  • obligate law enforcement officers, school principals, health care professionals and others to ascertain the citizenship of everybody they come into contact with
  • grant any yahoo with a computer and legal forms standing and free discovery to sue any state or local government official or unit of local government that fails to enforce the Brown Codes with exemplary rigor.

The Ronald Reagan We Remember, And Not So Fondly

Tags: 

It would take an entire library to move the mountain of fake history spun around the life and career of Ronald Reagan by now. Sometimes only a cartoon can approach the truth.

Aaron McGruder, in this intro to a Boondocks episode of a couple years ago, comes as close to capturing a piece of the mean and nasty spirit of the Gipper as anybody ever will.

"The F Card" once more

RL, as usual, is not simply calling, but stamping its little feet and screaming, so this is going to be a post that is far shorter than the subject deserves. But I thought I'd run it up the flagpole, and see if anybody salutes, throw it against the wall and see if it sticks, throw it on the roof.... Read more about "The F Card" once more

Why Don't I Care Anymore?

It used to be so much fun to bash the rightwing crazies like Rush Limbaugh, Glenn Beck, Michelle Bachmann and Ron Paul. I used to love it when Keith Olbermann would fulminate in righteous rage over the latest horrors coming from "Mr. Bush." I used to laugh my butt off when Rachel Maddow would make fun of wingnuts, and when Al Franken would play "Bill O'Reilly: Lying or Stupid?"

But now, when I hear the latest outrage over Rand Paul or Sarah Palin or the Tea Party or some other alleged threat to the very fabric of our country, I just feel uncomfortable and slightly queasy. Why? Why don't I care anymore? Read more about Why Don't I Care Anymore?
