"Obama's biggest problem is with his own party which seems to be drifting away from what he wanted, 
  which was for the package to include at least 40 percent tax relief and to be earmark-free.  He could
  end up with better support from us than he's getting from the Democratic majority, at least so far..."

Bush Employment Daggers


Rising unemployment spared no state last month, and 2009 is shaping up as another miserable year for workers.

Jobless rates for December hit double digits in Michigan and Rhode Island, while South Carolina and Indiana 
notched the biggest gains from the previous month. A common thread among these states has been manufacturing 
industry layoffs tied to consumers' shrinking appetite for cars, furniture and other goods.

With tens of thousands of layoffs announced this week by well-known employers such as Pfizer, Caterpillar and 
Home Depot, the unemployment picture is bound to get worse in every region of the country, economists say.
''We won't see a light at the end of the tunnel until 2010,'' said Anthony Sabino, a professor of law and business.

Why won't Democrats say it - tax cuts for the super-rich caused this - that and Bush's wars.
Bush took money from the poor and the middle class and gave it to the super rich who aren't spending it.

Democrats don't have the brains to take advantage of the facts in front of their faces.

 Subject: Right to vote

Hey, Bart... 
I saw this and had to comment.

> Vertie Hodge was 30 when Blacks got the right to vote.
> 44 years later "one of us" is living in The White House."

I don't know about any other black people in this country, but I got the right to vote back in 1870 
when the 15th Amendment was ratified.  if Vertie Hodges was actually born in 1840 (thirty years 
before the 15th was ratified), she'd be 169 years old today.
Just sayin', is all.

I guess we'll have to disagree on that.

 Obama is too polite the speak the unvarnished truth.
 America is not the enemy of Islam, the Bush bastards are.

 Poppy Bush put our soldiers in Saudi Arabia in his pretend war in 1991.
 Then his super-dim-witted son invaded Iraq to steal their oil.

 America isn't the problem - it's the Bush bastards and the greedy oil companies.

Democrats' anti-Pigboy Petition
 Gee, are you sure that's not overkill?

 Link      Listen to Rush's hate speech

The Wimpy Democrats have launched an online petition for readers to express their outrage at Rush Limbaugh 
for saying last week that he wanted President Barack Obama to fail.

The petition includes a sound byte of Limbaugh, saying, “If I wanted Obama to succeed, I’d be happy 
the Republicans have laid down. I don’t want this to work. So I’m thinking of replying to this guy, 
say ‘okay, I’ll send you a response, but I don’t need 400 words, I need four: I hope he fails.’”

Meanwhile, Obama advised Republicans to stop listening to Limbaugh's oink 
if they wanted to get along with Democrats and the administration.

"You can’t just listen to Rush Limbaugh and get things done," Obama said to Fascist leaders 
who met with the president to talk about the stimulus package.

 Subject: Republicans are going(?) nuts

A subsidiary point to this one -- to the extent that tax cuts are on the table, Republicans are going nuts 
about any tax cuts being rebated to people who are not paying income taxes.


 This is a perfect corollary to the typical Republican’t talking point on paying taxes:  at some point in the
“conversation”, they will make some comment to the effect that INCOME taxes are the ONLY taxes paid that count. 

Of course they are—for the top 5% of incomes!  But for the vast majority of Americans, the PAYROLL tax 
(FICA/Social Security/OASDI + Medicare/Medicaid/HI) is their biggest tax burden.

They fought (my home state then-senator Don Nickles led the charge) against making the Earned Income Tax Credit (EITC) 
“refundable”, i.e. if one’s income was low enough, one could collect more income tax credit than was owed in income taxes. 
Republican’t philosophy couldn’t be clearer:  if you’re poor, even though you’re working, you should just drop dead.

President Punk
 by Gene Lyons


George W. Bush maintained his manof-the-people pose almost until the end. Facing history, however, he got twitchy 
and defensive. Granted, it's hard to know how a president who stampeded the nation into a disastrous war on a false 
premise could stand there with a straight face praising his own understanding of "the power of freedom to be transformative" 
and his "great love for the human-human being, and [belief] in human dignity." 

The mask dropped momentarily, however, when a reporter at his final press conference asked him about the personal
burdens of the presidency. Affecting a sing-song, sarcastic whine, he lampooned people who imagine it's a tough job. 

"Oh, the burdens, you know," he sneered. "Why did the financial collapse have to happen on my watch?" 

Hipster, too cool to care. President Punk. Oh, so you're broke and out of a job? 
Well, he's not. . 

Polls show that somewhere between 22 and 27 percent of the public continues to view Bush favorably. 
Lincoln said, "You can fool some of the people all of the time." 
Now we know how many: roughly onequarter.

 Subject: Veronica Mars

Hey Bart, good response to the Veronica Mars comment!

It’s too bad he didn’t hang around long enough to see what a great show it was.
After you turned me on to the show, we bought the 3 season DVD’s and have been through them twice.

In browsing for stories about the upcoming movie, I saw where VM producer Rob Thomas has a new series
in March on the Starz network – whatever the hell that is – that features several VM cast members and show
producers. It’s called “Party Down,” about Hollywood wannabes working as caterers.

Doesn’t look like it will have quite the depth of Veronica Mars, but probably good for a laugh.
And we’ll need to get our laughs somewhere else now that Resident Moron is gone!

Take care…

Clarence 'Slappy' Thomas sleeps thru the Inauguration

Same Old Song
  by Bob Hebert


What’s up with the Republicans? Have they no sense that their policies have sent the country hurtling down the road to ruin?
Are they so divorced from reality that in their delusionary state they honestly believe we need more of their tax cuts for the
rich and their other forms of plutocratic irresponsibility, the very things that got us to this deplorable state?

The G.O.P.’s latest campaign is aimed at undermining President Obama’s effort to cope with the national economic emergency
by attacking the spending in his stimulus package and repeating ad nauseam the Republican mantra for ever more tax cuts.

“Right now, given the concerns that we have over the size of this package and all the spending in this package, we don’t think
it’s going to work,” said John Boehner on “Meet the Press,” Mr. Boehner said of the plan: “Put me down in the ‘no’ column.”

If anything, the stimulus package is not large enough. Less than 24 hours after Boehner’s televised exercise in obstructionism,
Caterpillar announced that it was cutting 20,000 jobs, Sprint Nextel said it was eliminating 8,000, and Home Depot 7,000.

Maybe the Republicans don’t think there is an emergency. After all, it was Phil Gramm, John McCain’s economic guru,
who told us last summer that the pain was all in our heads, that this was a “mental recession.”

The idiot Democrats - how f-ing stupid can they be?   Why don't they just say,
"We tried it your way and look where we are!
  Tax cuts for the rich bankrupted America!"

They are so totally brainless and clueless - how is that possible?
They don't even have the brains to list the facts.

If only the Democrats were as smart as Ol' Okie Bart.

"Maybe Obama's speechwriter should leave out the Bush bashing.
  You did not see Bush take office and constantly talk about what he inherited." 
      -- --Sandy Ennis, on the notion that Obama was mean to Bush in his inaugural address,     Link

 Hey lady, try to get a clue of what you're talking about.
 Obama's inauguration was the biggest media event in the history of the world.

 Every country was watching live - it was a bigger event than the Super Bowl and  the world 
 wanted to know if America was going to change or be more torture and more murder, etc.

 Obama HAD to say America would stop the murders, tortures and invasions.
 He HAD to reassure the world that the insanity was going to stop immediately.

 And no wonder Bush didn't scold Clinton.
 Clinton left him with a robust economy, peace and a budget surplus.

 What the hell did Bush have to complain about?

Halliburton to pay $559 million to settle bribery probe


Halliburton will pay a $559 million fine to end an investigation into their crimes if Obama approves the settlement, 
the largest penalty against a U.S. company for charges of bribery under federal law.

Cheney's Halliburton said it was awaiting final approval from the U.S. Department of Justice and the SEC
to settle claims that KBR violated anti-bribery laws by paying kickbacks to Nigerian officials.
Under the settlement, Halliburton would pay $382 million to the Department of Justice and 
$177 million to the Securities and Exchange Commission in 'disgorgement.'"

Gee, where can I get a deal like that?
You steal many trillions of dollars and then pay back a half-billion in fines?

Press Whores back at work
 They awaken from their 8-year Bush slumber


Pulling a collective Rip Van Winkle, the White House press whores have awakened from theirs extended nap 
just in time to aggressively press the new Democratic administration, just as it dogged the last Democratic president 
during his first days in office back in the 1990s. Conveniently skipped over during the press corps' extended bout 
of shut-eye? The Bush years, of course.

Suddenly revved up and vowing to keep a hawk-like watch on the Obama administration ("I want to hold these guys 
accountable for what they say and do") and all of a sudden obsessed with trivia, while glomming onto nitpicking, 
gotcha-style critiques, Beltway reporters have tossed aside the blanket of calm that had descended on them during 
the previous administration, a blanket of calm that defined their Bush coverage."

Legal Jeopardy For American Torturers 


Philippe Sands, a Queen's Counsel at Matrix Chambers and Professor of International law at University College London, 
has assembled a powerful indictment of the key Bush Administration people involved in torture in his book Torture Team: 
Rumsfeld's Memo and the Betrayal of American Values. He explains the legal exposure of people like Alberto Gonzales, 
Dick Cheney's counsel and later chief of staff David Addington, former Office of Legal Counsel attorney John Yoo, 
the former Department of Defense general counsel Jim Haynes, and others for their involvement in the torture of detainees 
at Guantanamo, Abu Ghraib, and CIA secret prisons.

After reading Sands's book and, more recently, listening to his comments on Terry Gross's NPR show "Fresh Air," 
on January 7, 2009 I realized how closely the rest of the world is following the actions of these former officials, and 
was reminded that these actions appear to constitute not merely violations of American law, but also, and very literally, 
crimes against humanity – for which the world is ready to hold them responsible.

 Subject: Obama must stand up to GOP on Family Planning

Obama is facing his first test as President - will he be able to stand up to the Republicans?
If we are going to turn America around we need a president who is strong.
That's Obama's job - to be strong.

Obama should not start out throwing women under the bus by backing down on funding for family planning.
Instead of caving in to the Republicans he should call on the people to back him up.
The Republicans are testing him. It's his job to not fail.

We won this election.
