"Obama is changing the rules! He is showing
a different kind of audacity! He wants companies that get taxpayer dollars to perform as if they operated
in the real world and not the land of Oz. In the real world, if you build a better car, people will buy
it, and if you don't, they won't. That has never been the operating principle in Detroit, where automakers made
clunkers and the Japanese cleaned their clocks...GM's stock was $70 a share when Wagoner took over and
closed under $4 on Friday. But Michigan Gov. Granholm, a Democrat, said Monday on NBC's 'Today' show
that Wagoner was a 'sacrificial lamb.' To me, it looks like the stockholders were the lambs. The
lambs led to slaughter."

There will never be justice
in the United States until this drunken asshole is jailed for mass murder,
corruption, flagrant violations of the law, and his refusal to recognize
human rights. He is also responsible for the worst attack on the United States
since Pearl Harbor. He is directly reponsible for the misery and lost hopes of millions of human
beings because of his reckless handling of the American economy.
Excerpt: I'm always amazed by how willing conservatives
are to believe their own lazy caricatures and, as a result,
how completely and utterly they fail to understand
the actual motivations and beliefs of their political opponents...
The notion that there is anyone of significance
on the American left who still believes in anything approaching genuine
socialism is pure fantasy. That debate, to the
extent it ever really happened in this country, was settled a long time
What we're dealing with right now are differences
of opinion regarding how best to manage the failure of a number of
major companies. It's not a debate about
socialism vs. capitalism; it's a debate about methods of damage control.
But many conservatives have so deluded themselves
with their own propaganda that they're not even capable of
following the conversation any more. So
instead they spend all day indulging in paranoid delusions and debates
that have no relevance to current events.
It's a sad spectacle.
The crazy sons of bitches want to tax-cut their way out of the recession
by starving the middle class - which is wjat caused the recession in
the first place.
They don't care if America falls, as long as they get another tax cut.

you related to Rush Limbaugh?" My teachers' whispered questions about

my 8-year-old comrades had no idea who he was. During those years, I didn't

of my brother, who's older than your brother
and can beat your brother up.
It was pretty hit-and-miss but clear-cut all the
same. People either didn't know who he was or didn't care or loved him
or hated him.
There was no like in the equation. If
they had an opinion about him, once they learned of our connection, they
offered that opinion.

Yes, Beck can play the guitar, but can anyone

Beck played with the Yardbirds and did the Wired

half a dozen truly great albums and strongly influenced music.
Beck, not so much.
"The Beltway press pros didn't seem to care
what Krugman wrote about Bush and didn't think his writing --his opposition--needed to be examined closer.
He was just a liberal critic, so who cared what he wrote about Bush...But now a Democrat is in the
Oval Office, Krugman is still hitting the president from the left, and suddenly the Beltway press thinks Krugman's
work is fascinating and newsworthy." -- Eroc Boehlert,

Excerpt: So here's the latest: In what The
New York Times described as "an unusual move," Goldman Sachs quietly
bought up a big share of its own stock from two
senior executives last fall even as possible insolvency loomed.
Goldman, which received $12.9 billion in government
funds from the cratered insurance giant AIG, paid chief
operating officer Jon Winkelried $19.7 million,
general counsel Gregory K. Palm $38.3 million.
Goldman's alibi was that both gentlemen needed
cash and "directors were concerned that a large sale of
Goldman shares . . . would alarm investors during
a period of market turmoil." Were they politicians,
such transactions might be deemed insider trading
and could lead to an SEC investiga-um, whitewash.
To emphasize their need, the Times pointed out
that "in a much-noticed sign of the times, Mr. Winkelried . . .
put his estate in Nantucket on the market last
fall for $55 million. He has since lowered the price.
He also owns a home in Short Hills, N.J., and
a horse farm in Colorado."
With the price of quality horse hay approaching
$5 a bale these days, you can see the poor guy's problem.
So why do they get to keep that stolen money?
Why can't the IRS audit everybody who
made more than $10M a year for the last eight years and let's
find out where that money came from.

Excerpt: Barney Frank shepherded the new AIG bonus bill
around the House floor - questioning the sanity of
Texas Republican John Culberson and other conservatives
who were needling the majority.
Frank grabbed the microphone after Culberson blasted
Democrats for passing the stimulus,
which permitted AIG to lavish billions on executives
after its de facto federal takeover.
Frank accused the GOP of attacking him for trying
to fix the flawed stimulus, saying Republicans’
criticism was part “of a psychological disorder
I am not equipped to diagnose.”
When Culberson coaxed another Democrat to admit
he hadn’t actually read the entire stimulus,
Frank jumped in to point out that the new bill
was much shorter - while questioning Culberson’s literacy skills.
'The bill is 5½ pages - even the gentleman
from Texas could have read it by now.'"

Good point - if the Blue Dog backstabbers

I know how to save GM. General Motors savior
may be in it’s illegal aquisitions from 70 years ago.
From the 1920s through the 1950s GM and Firestone
bought up all the private commuter rail they could,
including subways, cable cars, electric trollies,
etc… So that they could crush it forcing people to buy cars
to get around. The Supreme Court fined them botha
whopping $5000 for violating antitrust laws and
single handidly destroying the American metropolitan
area. Today, much of that old infrastructure still exists,
albeit in a dilapidated state, and GM still owns
thousands of miles of rail easments in dozens of cities across America.
Obama put over $8 billion in the stimulus bill
for commuter rail, why not give GM a few billion bucks to renovate and
the old subways and trollies? Los Angeles used
to have one of the largest networks of subways and cummuter rail in the
before GM destroyed it, and most of the old tunnels
still exist and only need some renovation to be functional again.
By doing this we can save GM and it’s vast capital
infrastructure, help the environment by removing cars from the road,
and force one of the slowest-to-adapt manufacturing
giants to finally diversify.
Excerpt: There is still no decision in the New York 20th
Congressional District race between Democrat Scott Murphy
and Republican Jim Tedisco. Both men believe
they will win, but a decision cannot be made until absentee ballots are
This has been an incredibly close race with Murphy
currently leading Tedisco by 25 ballots. Murphy feels confident
that the absentees will sway in his favor, while
Tedisco points out that military absentees traditionally vote Republican.
But if this about Obama, how can the race be close
if his approval ratings are still in the sixties?
