Excerpt: After today's annual report, I don't think there's
any question of GM's staying out of bankruptcy. The company's
revenue fell from $180 billion in 2007 to $149
billion in 2008, with the worst crash in the fourth quarter. Car
have continued to plunge into the new year.
The company's current asset position continues to deteriorate by about
$2 billion a quarter even with massive Federal
injections of cash. With cash & equivalents now down to just
$14 billion, they can't go on this way for much
longer. Though no one knows exactly how much working capital the
company needs on hand at any time, the estimates
tend to fall around $10 billion. Dip below that, and they'll rapidly
be catapulted into insolvency.
Is there no end to the damage the greedy Bush
bastards have caused?
Excerpt: Karl Rove and Harriet Miers will provide private,
on-the-record interviews to the House Judiciary Committee.
The interviews would be done behind closed doors
— but transcribed and released to the public. The committee
isn’t giving up the right to seek public testimony
from Rove, a former political aide and deputy chief of staff,
and Miers, a former White House counsel. But
the issue will be deferred indefinitely, the source said.
Bush had blocked thire testimony, saying that
the guilty shouldn't have to implcate themselves.
I'm so old, I remember having respect for John Conyers.
After years of empty threats and childish rhetoric, the Democrats have
caved in once again
and allowed the guilty sons of bitches to dictate the terms for their
What else did Conyers give them - blanket immunity?
When they suspected Clinton had a girlfriend, they got him under
oath and on camera so the whore press
could replay his testimony a dozen times a day for the first month,
then six times a day for the second month
- and for jacking up the Justice department, Rove gets to dictate under
what terms he'll agree to "testify?"
How did I get in a party of consistent losers?
Why do the Dems NEVER get as good a deal as the Rethugs?

Somebody is handing these things out to waitresses
in Arizona instead of tips.
What kind of evil prick does a person have to
be to give this to somebody working for less than minimum wage,
maybe trying to support kids, a card that basically
says, "I'm going to eat out because I can't see any reason to deprive myself,
I want credit for bravely making this sacrifice
for your sake, and oh, about your tip - fuck you. It's Obama's fault."
Oh wait. A republicant would do that.
It figures that a struggling waitress might've voted for Obama so the
Rethugs get "even" this way.
But look at the bright side - next time the waitress will spit on their
food before serving it.
"Pretty much every major news outlet in the
country has said as a matter of objective analysis that Obama wants to repeal the legacy
of Ronald Reagan and remake the country as a European welfare state." -- Jonah Goldberg, lying again,

"Are you one of the 95 percent of Americans
whose taxes would be cut under Obama's budget? Does the thought of that tax cut being
paid for by the wealthiest 2 percent strike terror into your heart? If so, you're in luck, because backstabber
Evan Bayh wants to keep the rich as rich as possible."
-- Matthew Yglesias, Link
"Evan Bayh voted against Bush's tax cuts when
voting against them was moderate. Now, allowing them to expire is...extremist?" -- Eric Martin on the backstabbing

Excerpt: A Brazilian archbishop says all those who helped
a 9-year old rape victim secure an abortion
are to be excommunicated from the Catholic Church.
The girl became pregnant with twins.
It is alleged that she had been sexually assaulted
over a number of years by her stepfather.
The excommunication applies to the child's mother
and the doctors involved in the procedure.
...but not the stepfather for raping this child
for three years?
Abortion is only permitted in Brazil in cases
of rape and where the mother's life is at risk
and doctors say the girl's case met both these
conditions. Police believe that the girl had been
sexually abused by her step-father since she
was six years old.
Excerpt: He's the sweaty, swollen man in the black, half-buttoned
shirt who ranted for nearly 90 minutes at CPAC.
He reiterated his desire to see the president
of his country fail. He misstated the Constitution’s intent while
accusing Obama of "bastardizing" the document.
He made fun of John Kerry's service in Vietnam, to laughter.
Note: Kerry still has shrapnel in his ass
from Vietnam and they mock him for that.
Meanwhile, Rush got his I-can't-serve-because-I-have-a-cyst

For the Republican Party, Limbaugh has become
very much a vice. Smarter Republicans know he is not good for them.
As David Frum said recently, “If you’re a talk
radio host and you have five million who listen and there are 50 million
who hate you, you make a nice living. If you’re
a Republican party, you’re marginalized.” . But Republicans just can’t
So even poor Michael Steele, the Tom who heads
the all-white GOP, had to grovel and crawl back to the feet of Limbaugh.
Race is an obsession with Limbaugh, one of the
threads I noticed on those long drives on country roads.
Race is a Rush obsession because he speaks to hard-core racists in the

Republicants get their lips off of Rush’s butt.

Don't know if this quote 'explains' anything,
but it's interesting.
It is 'spoken" by a character about 10 years
after the Revolutionary War.
' "Just so. Who claims Truth, Truth abandons.
History is hir'd, or coerc'd, only in Interests that must ever prove base. She is too innocent, to be left within the

Holt and Company, 1997)
Excerpt: Now is normally when a player makes a bet
of around 60 dollars, another safe half the pot sized bet to get
some money from their opponent, but this is also
the perfect spot to make a big bet, a pot-sized bet or even bigger,
just think how crazy it would be if you bet 200
Now why on earth would you make such a bet? It's
because all poker hands are about telling a story, and the story
you're now trying to tell your opponent is "I
had a flush draw on the flop and missed it, and now on the river, I'm trying
to steal this pot from you by making a crazy
bet, please fold, please fold, pllllllllleeeeeassssseeeeee fold!!!!!"

1. Listed credit derivatives stood at USD

at about USD 9 trillion; 5. Equity Linked
Derivatives at about USD 8.5 trillion; and 6. Unallocated
Derivatives at about USD 71+ trillion.
No, Rush et al didn't mention any of that. But
it's precisely that, not Obama budget, or those “tax and spend liberals,”
who are to blame for the worldwide systemic economic
collapse we are experiencing. It's the residue of all that
Bernie Madoff, wink and nod, cash for trash,
phony-baloney, air-asset faux capitalism that's collapsed on everyone.
By comparison Obama's $4 trillion looks downright
"I don't remember Evan Bayh or Ben Nelson or

Bart, in Issue 2298 you posted a link to a story
by Think Progress that stated that Obama
was to blame for every downturn on the Stock

While this is true,it does not go all the way
to the end of the story.
One of the GOPs tactics during the Clinton administration
involved claiming that the recession the nation was
in was all the fault of Bill Clinton,after all
it could not have been in recession under the Reagan/Bush administrations
as the Fuzzy Math/Voodoo economics presidents
were getting their Policy advice from such fiduciary geniuses as
Jesus the Christ and Madame Starla the Psychic
Medium(cast Your bread upon the blue-chips if mercury rising
and venus wanes and it will return twelve times
When the Country began to recover then it was
Trickle Down finally taking effect and had nothing to do
with the policies of the Clinton administration.
I expect this nonsense to return as the Obama
plan puts People to work and puts real money back in the hands
of main street and not that invisible cloud cash
that has propped up the Neo fiscal conservatives for the past eight years.
They will in fact demand that the policies of
Junior Bush will just now be taking hold and that it would be seventeen
greater if only McCain had been president instead
as Obama's plan destroyed the true power,i/e the top 5% strata.
And these Shysters who want to lay the deregulation
of buisness and the disastrous banking policies which got us here
at Bill Clintons feet, well here is a little
news flash - that actually is Phill Gramm,McCains good friend and campaign
Not Bill Clinton.
The same Phil Gramm who co-authored the Gramm-Rudman
bill and who was a tireless opponent of the
1933 Glass-Steagal Act which he successfully
overturned in 1999. In December 2000 Gramm, Richard Lugar and
with help from banking lobbyist' (Enron) penned
the Commodity Futures Modernization Act which was enthusiastically
supported by Alan Greenspan and then Treasury
Secretary Larry Summers(Not Democrats).
Remember the plan is to worship Rush Limbaugh
and backstab Barry Obama just the same today,as it was back then.
