"The mainstream media doesn't get it. They'll
report on the tea parties just as a -- you know, oh, they're just a bunch of whack job Republicans who only
care about taxes on the rich. Where were they with George Bush? ...But the tea parties are not about taxes.
They are about the reason for the taxes, which is an out-of-control government that cannot control its own spending."

Butt Monkey, if Bush hadn't spent us into bankruptcy,
if Bush's "deregulate everything" didn't give Wall Street a license
Obama wouldn't be spending the money trying to correct the problems.
Again - what's YOUR solution?
Sit back and allow 10-15% unemployment to strangle America for 10-15
Sit back and allow Detroit and the banks to go under?
We got here thru bad GOP policies and tax cuts for the rich.
Why do you think more of that is the cure?
It's like if the GOP ran Sober House, they'd be
giving Gary Busey cocaine and vodka
to help him beat his addictions and then act shocked when things
GOP policies are guaranteed to fail.
If only we could get the Democrats to mention that.

Different countries have different laws, and many
of them won't allow you to bring your guns into their ports aboard
your ship or boat or yacht. So as long as you
sail from Miami for a three hour tour of the west coast of Africa, you're
But the minute you sail into port, you run the
rish of being put into some third world jail for gunrunning.
That's why we have navies. The navy's first job
is to fight pirates, and fighting pirates, as far as I know, does not require
an act of Congress. The Navy and the Coast Guard
interdict drug runners all the time, board them, confiscate everything.
So why can't the Navy blows these Somali pirates
out of the water? They're buzzing around in fucking rubber dinghies
with AK-47s, for Koresh's sake, and there doesn't
seem to be anything we can do about them.
My original point still stands. Logic says these
African hillbillies should have been toast long ago. They seem able to
almost at will, even giant tankers, using little
more than fishing boats. The only explanation that makes any sense is that
able to do it because they are allowed to do
it. Somebody is protecting them, and it isn't the government of Somalia,
there isn't a government in Somalia. Somebody
with a hell of a lot of pull and power is making a ton of money off this.
That's the only reason it has been allowed to
go on for this long.
"These tea parties are a sham because they're
directed by lobbyists here in D.C...And you've got Fox News, pushing this, promoting this with all

this up the wazoo. That is not a grassroots movement."

Excerpt: The NYWTimes notes that the ABA – in a futile
effort to get itself back into the good graces of Bushies
– began to give unwarranted high marks to right-wing
nominees as a way to shake its “liberal” label.
“The group regularly gave ‘well qualified’ and
‘qualified’ ratings to some of Bush’s most deeply flawed nominees,”
the editorial said. “Conservatives will undoubtedly
keep trying to intimidate the ABA. The group’s screeners should
evaluate the Obama nominees based on their qualifications,
judicial temperament and views of the law – without
imposing any ideological litmus test.”
Yet what the Times described about the ABA’s pandering
to the Right is exactly what the New York Times
and other mainstream news organizations have
done for almost three decades.

How relieved they must be, no longer tasked with defending the

Excerpt: A new survey of Minnesota finds a clear verdict
on the part of the state's voters: They want Norm Coleman to concede defeat,
and Al Franken to be sworn in. The poll was conducted
in the aftermath of the election court's ruling that Franken won the race.
By a 63%-37% margin, voters say that Coleman should
toss off, rather than continue to appeal. They say by a 59%-41% margin
that Franken should be seated immediately, rather
than allow the seat to stay vacant. And by a 59%-41% margin, they say that
Republican Gov. Tim Pawlenty (Bridge collapse)
should sign a certificate of election.
"I could see how conservatives might be concerned
that they could potentially be lumped in with the crazed right-wing militia members that are
cited as potential violence risks in a new report from the Department of Homeland Security. But the conservative
reaction is to do the lumping themselves. Michelle Malkin has a blog post decrying "The
Obama DHS hit job on conservatives." Conservatives? The report is about murderous lunatics.
Michelle Malkin calls potential terrorists "conservatives."

Excerpt: Everybody's habits are different, but hardly

Advertisers have noticed that too, and particularly
during the current economic downturn are taking their business elsewhere.
Meanwhile, the costs of printing and delivering
newspapers keep rising, making it increasingly hard for publishers to compete.
Back when they started giving content away free
online, even a financial nimrod like me wondered how they expected to do
and make money. Increased Internet speed and
portability seem to have made it clear they cannot.
Internet users, however, basically refuse to
pay. So far, online advertising rates come nowhere near paying for
the costs of running
a news organization. Many bloggers and Internet
commentators smugly anticipating the death of newspapers -- there's a definite
generational edge to the rivalry -- are essentially

I disagree with Gene about people paying for
online content. I pay $15 a month for the Tulsa World's dead tree

a local Herbfest or those back yard water-feature contests.
The problem is, THEY DON'T PUT EVERYTHING ONLINE,

Instead of dying, why don't they at least TRY
to stay in business by putting everything in their dead trees edition online?
One of the worst offenders us USA Whore Today.
I'll read something, then I'll want to put it on the page so I search for
online - but it's not there and I'll be damned
if I'll spent half a day re-typing an entire story.
Even if it's an important, front page story, the
bastards at USA Today refuse
to give their customers what they want.
I assume the papers write their stories on computers,
so their refusal to give me what I want is INTENTIONAL.
Since that's the case, I'll feel less sorry for
them when they go under.
No doubt some lunkhead lawyer advised them NOT
to give the customer what he wants - so they're dying.
Wait, no, newspapers aren't dying, they choosing

that most people that buy the totally over rated Toyotas and Hondas nowadays either had sour experiences with
the lemon mobiles of the 80’s or just can’t stand the fact that a “broom pusher” makes more than they do. The

than all the other justices and a good number of law professors,

know that everyone else knows you are a fraud, and yet to be locked into
your job more or less for life. It's enough to
ruin a person. And it appears it has.
