Propaganda meets Professor Obama 
  by Joe Conason


Thursday's health care summit offered a real chance to learn what GOP politicians really think about healthcare, 
insurance companies and working people who don’t enjoy the same kind of coverage that we provide for them. 
And it also emphasized that Obama has allowed the opposition many chances to seek bipartisan compromise, 
only to be spurned in the most cynical way every time.

Republicans repeated their propaganda points that seem transparently fraudulent when someone like Obama is 
present to correct them...The Republican leaders were unafraid to sound ignorant, as The Boehner demonstrated 
when he claimed that insurance for doctors is "the biggest cost driver" in American healthcare. He deserved to be 
corrected less gently than he was by the president and Sen. Dick Durbin, D-Ill., but perhaps they make allowances 
for Boehner, who might be dim enough to believe whatever he parrots from the script.

 ha ha

John McCain, whose sneering at the president almost became the headline of the summit, quickly chimed in on 
malpractice to say that laws limiting claims in Texas and California have "worked." But, again, he and Boehner 
both had to listen as their propaganda gambit was shot down.

Subject: Lauren Ashley and the obession with Leviticus

Odd about people who quote Leviticus - they never quote all the law, only bits and pieces of it. 
You never hear of them quoting Leviticus chapter yen and eleven:

10 And all that have not fins and scales in the seas, and in the rivers, of all that move in the waters, 
     and of any living thing which is in the waters, they shall be an abomination unto you:

11 They shall be even an abomination unto you; ye shall not eat of their flesh, 
     but ye shall have their carcases in abomination.

12 Whatsoever hath no fins nor scales in the waters, that shall be an abomination unto you.

So if you eat pork or rabbit or shrimp or catfish, you just committed an abomination. 

Right - eating a bacon sandwich is just as bad as "the abomination" of being gay.

25 years ago I saw a Madonna interview.  She said she left the Catholic church because they said
eating meat on Friday or kissing a girl was as bad as shooting someone - she's right - that's crazy.

And isn't it curious that you will never ever hear them quote verse 20? 

20 Moreover thou shalt not lie carnally with thy neighbour's wife, to defile thyself with her. 

Could it be they don't want to bring up the HUGE number of their heroes that have done exactly that?

You are correct.
They want to pick and choose which verses count - the ones that hurt gays the most
are the ones they choose to highlight because it backs up their prejudiced crappola.

MMA Rumors

Eight lobbyists for every congressman 


A new analysis by the Center for Public Integrity shows that corporate interests attempted to exert 
an unprecedented amount of influence in the health care debate over the past year. More than 1,750 
companies hired about 4,525 lobbyists - eight for Congressman -  to influence health care in 2009. 

These groups included 207 hospitals, 105 insurance companies, 85 manufacturing companies, 
and 745 trade, advocacy, and professional organizations. Overall, "businesses and organizations 
that lobbied on health reform spent more than $1.2 billion on their overall lobby efforts.

So every congressman is surrounded by eight millionaires trying to give him cash.
Meanwhile, the poor and middle class are shut out in the cold and can't be heard.

Arizona Goes 'Birther'? 


Nearly half of the Arizona Legislature wants to force Obama to show his birth certificate to run for re-election.

A state House committee on Tuesday approved the measure sponsored by 40 of the state’s 90 legislators. 
It would require presidential candidates who want to appear on the ballot in Arizona to submit documents 
proving they meet the requirements to be president.

All 40 co-sponsors are Republicans, comprising 75 percent of the GOP caucus. 
Two of them have since resigned to run for Congress."

I think Obama learned this trick from Bill Clinton.
He's going to wait until the entire GOP goes out fifty miles on this limb
and when it's the most embarassing time, hand them his birth certificate.

Problem is, they'll IMMEDIATELY go to Bitch #2.

They will never stop complaining - ever.

Subject: Hottest January on record 

Republicans say, "January, according to satellite (data), was the hottest January we've ever seen.... 
Last November was the hottest November we've ever seen, November-January as a whole is 
the hottest November-January the world has seen...."

Recall the many Republicans who conveniently used the recent spate of cold weather and ample snow 
(to think, for this to happen in the winter!) to scoff at climate change. Once again, they have to eat their words.

Subject: RicoDog SCOOP: Toyota explained

While driving a '69 Firebird alone on a country road on a clear summer day, I saw that the car was starting 
to climb the embankment on the side of the road.  I immediately slammed on the brake and to my shock the car 
sped up instead of slowing down.  When the car came to a stop with its partially crumpled nose jammed up 
against the hillside,  I wondered why the engine was racing at full throttle.  Gathering my wits in a second or two, 
I looked down to find that my right foot was firmly planted ON THE ACCELERATOR!  Prior to this revelation, 
I would have sworn to Koresh that I was standing on the brake.

My disorientation was induced by two factors: one, that the car was at a slight angle, having already started to climb 
the bank by the time I hit the 'brake;'  and two -- and this is where the industry-wide bad engineering comes in -- 
practically all cars built from the mid-sixties to the present don't have anywhere near the difference in 'feel' or elevation 
between the gas and the brake as compared to earlier cars.  The cars that I learned to drive on that were built in the 
1950s had gas pedals that were hinged at the bottom and were set several inches farther away than the brake pedal. 

In addition to having to bend your knee and pull your foot up in order to apply the brake, there was a decidely 
different design -- and therefore a different 'feel' -- between the gas and the brake.  Today, one can practically 
just slide across between the two pedals; back in the day, your heel had to come off the floor to get to the brake.

And back in the day, come to think of it, unintended acceleration was not an issue.  Hmmmm.

You might be onto something there.
Toyota has tens of millions of cars on American roads.

The problem might be that one in every million drivers gets confused and hits the wrong pedal.
Poor design would be Toyota's fault, but if that's the problem, it's easily fixed and Toyota
would once again be considered a safe and dependable car to drive.

State Marijuana Penalties

Don't believe the Toyota slander
 by a guy who drives a 1996 Toyota product 


Of course, not everything could be reduced to a simple and obvious rules like poke-yoke.  For example, let's assume 
you want to drill a prefect hole in the perfect place.  When the tools are first set up, it's pretty simple to get the results 
you need.  However, over time, the drill bit will get dull and the restraints that hold the part in place will loosen or 
otherwise move slightly.  At some point, the part will no longer meet specifications.  Toyota's answer to this dilemma 
was to take careful and routine measurements to determine how long it took for a set-up to go out of spec.  If it was 
found that 43,000 holes could be drilled before a dull bit started making bad parts, the solution was to change the bit 
at 42,000 parts (for example).  Over time, experience would teach Toyota how to make a whole car out of statistically 
perfect parts while poke-yoke would ensure those perfect parts would always be assembled correctly.

Using methods like this, Toyota was soon producing cars with incredible quality designed and built in.  Folks began to
notice that their Toyotas seemed to last forever and almost never broke down.  Whatever was wrong with a Toyota, 
reliability was NEVER the problem.

After reading about ten books on Toyota's methods, I became convinced that either you built things the way they did, 
or you built an inferior product.  Toyota's methods were pure genius. 

So to those grandstanding pols who want us to believe that Toyota is now making dangerous junk I say, 
"How can someone like you who is lucky to get something right a couple of times a YEAR 
criticize folks who get thousands of things absolutely perfect every DAY?"

Subject: ice skating porn

Hi Bart,

Your take-down of porno ice-skating reminded me of the time when I met a retired ballet dancer at a party.

He told me the majority of male dancers are gay and the women prefer it that way.
It makes perfect sense. 
What other "legal" profession requires a man to grap a woman by the crotch?

To stay business-like and avoid the harassment problem, you need gay men.

Subject: ice skating porn

Gotta agree with you on this one. 
Even as a kid, I remember thinking, "He's skating around holding her up by her cooter!" 

Haven't noticed the doggie-style & "soixante-neuf" positions cuz I hate figure-skating & 
don't watch unless I'm in someone else's home, but maybe you've turned me around! 
I sure DID see those crotch-shot twirls & leg-lifts.

I wonder if the judges deduct points for poor Brazillian-waxing techniques...

Subject: ice skating porn

So, about the skating porn. I guess that makes women gymnastics kiddie porn, right? 
And don't get me started on women's beach volleyball, lol.

Have a good one,

You're right - that's another part of the problem.
Some of the girls are underage and they have them dressing and dancing like that?

No girl under 18 should be told the rules are she must spread her legs for the old men.

Subject: Toyota automobiles

I bought into that "Buy American" crap back in 1982 when I did what Ford asked me 
to do by buying a Ford truck. I already knew that the Japanese vehicles were kicking ass, 
but having recently been discharged from the military I still had a strong sense of patriotism in me.

Immediately after making my purchase I took the thing home for a good inspection, upon which 
I noticed that everything under the hood had some kind of Japanese labeling attached. 

It took several phone calls to verify that my FORD Courier was in fact a Japanese made MAZDA. 
It turned out to be the best vehicle I had ever owned! They didn't want me to buy Japanese, but they 
were buying Japanese and relabeling them as Ford!!

I haven't bought another American made car since, other than American made Japanese brands.

Subject: Toyota automobiles

My husband, an American, sells powder coatings to American job shops, employing Americans, 
that make and coat parts for Toyota. That powder is made in Georgia by American workers. 

It is shipped to warehouses owned by Americans on trucks that are owned by Americans. 
This American wife with her three 13-yr old American kids is thankful that someone is still 
making automobiles that Americans want to buy.

Subject: Toyota automobiles

I have seen several online articles re: a possible govt. fix in bringing down Toyota and it makes sense to me 
except for one simple fact....The Japanese auto makers (not just Toyota) have factories all over the south. 

It does not serve the govt. as a whole or the Obama admin. at all if the Japanese automakers 
and by proxy the many factories employing Americans flop.   Your take on this? 
 Dan - Albany, NY 

If the GOP could break Toyota and get their Southern factories shut down,
that would be more "proof" that Obama has mishandled the recovery.

An economic recovery is the LAST thing the GOP needs right now.
That'd mean it got better under the Black man after Bush made things worse.

Plus the whore media keeps suggesting Obama's peeps are on the take.
Well, either on the take or too stupid to predict the speedometer problems.

The GOP makes their money when the country is f-ing miserable.

Subject: Your next Test - have it in Detroit! 

1.  Medical Marijuana is legal in Michigan, and has been in Detroit for a while.
2.  Marijuana is de facto legal in Detroit for the healthy, because there are not enough police to enforce the laws against it. 
3.  The federal government has made it clear that except for GM and Chrysler, they really could care less what happens 
     in or to Detroit and Michigan, so there's probably not much of a chance that the DEA will intervene.

If all else fails, have it in Ann Arbor. 

The penalty for possession of under an ounce of pot in AA is a $45 civil infraction and confiscation of the drug. 
No criminal record, no probation, and no life-long stigma.  The medical marijuana laws still apply, the state police 
stay out of it unless you are driving on the Interstate while toking, and it is a college town. 

Susanne, I like the sound of that.

Katrina cop pleads guilty 


A veteran New Orleans police officer pleaded guilty yesterday to orchestrating an elaborate cover-up 
of a shooting in the days after Katrina in which police gunned down six unarmed city residents, killing two 
and seriously wounding four.

The development -- which the Times-Picayune calls a "potentially devastating blow" to other officers linked 
to the case -- is the first plea in a wide-ranging federal probe of several post-Katrina police shootings. The Feds 
are reportedly looking at possible crimes in both the shootings themselves as well as the subsequent investigations.

The Danziger Bridge shootings occurred on Sept. 4, 2005, just six days after Katrina hit. The victims were stranded 
on a part of Chef Menteur highway that was surrounded by flooding; the police involved were working out of a 
temporary station at a reception hall nearby.

In federal court Wednesday, former Lt. Michael Lohman plead guilty to one count of conspiracy to obstruct justice 
in the incident. He arrived on the bridge after a group of officers had opened fire at two groups of unarmed citizens, 
leaving Ronald Madison, a mentally disabled 40-year old man, dead from six gunshot wounds, and James Brissette, 
dead from seven gunshot wounds."

These people were trying to get to a livable part of the city when shots rang out and that drew the cops. 
The cops mistook the flood fleers for the shooters and opened fire on them.

That would not have happened to white residents.
