The Lincoln Club is a key player in state politics
and this latest initiative is an ambitious act of political skullduggery.
The Citizen Power Campaign is trying to put a
measure on the ballot come November that would make it illegal for
taxpayer money for political activity.
Why? Because that would remove a key source of funding for the public
employees union, making it more difficult for
pro-labor candidates to get elected.

Excerpt: Let's get one thing straight, as the nation's
esteemed TV news networks appear determined to obscure
simple facts for ratings-building melodrama.
The U.S. Senate has already passed Obama's healthcare reforms
by a filibuster-proof majority. If Speaker Nancy
Pelosi can persuade a majority of House Democrats to pass
the Senate bill, that's the ballgame. There's
nothing complicated about it.
All this scare talk about Democrats using the
"nuclear option" or launching a "kamikaze mission" is the crudest
kind of partisan propaganda. Using the Senate's
reconciliation process to make fiscal changes to a bill already
passed was standard operating procedure under
President Bush. It's grimly amusing watching Senate Republicans,
who spent years telling Democrats to get over
the suspect 2000 presidential election, now pitching hissy fits over
the prospect of a simple majority vote.
How many times did Vice President Dick Cheney
emerge from his Fortress of Solitude to break 50-50 tie votes
in the Senate? Eight times. As Paul Krugman points
out, Bush used reconciliation twice to pass tax cuts for tycoons,
increasing the national debt by $1.8 trillion.
There's and old political joke that goes like
this. "What is the opposite of progress? Congress!"
But that joke has never been more true than it
has lately. This is especially true of the Senate.
I'm not sure which is worse, that a single senator
held up government to settle a political score
or the fact that the rest of the senate let him
do it. Senators from both parties hold up important
legislation and appointments to get their little
piece of pork for themselves and their district.
America is in big trouble and our elected officials
aren't taking their jobs seriously.
"The People" are supposed to be the owners of
America. But to these politicians
"The People" is little more than a slogan they
use in their political ads.
"These Democrats are disgusting. Wimps and

I talked to my old boss at the used car lot yesterday.
How is business?
"Terrible, nobody's buying new cars so nobody
is trading in old cars so inventory sucks. People want to purchase a car for $3,000

Are the banks lending?

- everyone else is cut off."
What's up with Toyota?
"They made some mistakes and mishandled the
recall but they're still the quality standard. Obama's in the car business now and
he's eliminating the competition."

GROW A SPINE AND PASS HEALTH CARE REFORM NOW -
I work for an insurance agent. I know how evil
the Health Insurance/Pharma CARTEL has become.
I'm also so old, I remember when health insurance
was regulated, and NON-PROFIT, (pre-Reagan.)
When it was a service, not a business. Being for-profit
now, it's not in their best business interest to pay anyone's claims.
It's that simple. Their collective greed has,
and continues to destroy not only the national economy (effecting the world
economy in the process), but millions of people's
lives as well. As your constituent, I demand that if you fail to pass this
legislation without either a public option/Medicare
FOR ALL, or non-profit choice, you give up your lifetime health benefits
THAT WE, THE AMERICAN PEOPLE, PAY FOR. I'm also
asking you to stand with President Obama and get
comprehensive health reform DONE. It's the only
decent, moral, HUMANE thing to do, and our economy, our families,
and our nation require nothing less. Otherwise,
we deserve better than your sorry selves if you let us down AGAIN.
Excerpt: When Rahm Emanuel was riding high last summer,
expanding his power while swatting down retarded liberals,
the New York Times published a long profile presenting
him as the undisputed master of Obamaís universe.
According to that story, he was "more chief than
staff." He was taking names, kicking ass, setting policy
and micromanaging down to party invitation lists.
Nowhere did he or anyone around him complain back
then that Emanuel could not make his will done in the
White House, or worry that the president was
not listening to him. That particular profile suggested that Obama
himself had informally forbidden everyone from
"cooperating with staff profiles," which was why "Mr. Emanuel
declined a formal interview for this article."
To describe someone as declining a "formal interview"
sounds like another way of saying that he spilled
everything off the record or on background, of
course. Which seems to be what Rahm is doing these days,
either himself or through cutouts.

Excerpt: The Republicans' strategy for motivating their
base this year -- is fear. Fear of President Obama, fear of change,
fear of some giant socialist revolution, of death
panels, of government bureaucrats and liberals and anything else
that might pop up. Still, you wouldn't expect
the Republican National Committee to come right out and admit to that.
That's exactly what RNC Finance Director Rob Bickhart
did, however, as part of a fundraising presentation.
The presentation included several slides that
portray the GOP's own supporters in a very negative light,
giving the impression that the RNC believes its
donors are stupid, and that it plans to treat them that way.
One of the slides divides donors into two groups
-- major donors and smaller ones. The latter group, the slide says,
gives for visceral reasons: "Fear" and "Extreme
negative feelings toward existing Administration" are listed. The slide
also tags this group with a term usually used
in an less-than-flattering sense: "Reactionary." The major donors don't
fare much better; they give, the slide says,
for "Networking Opportunities" and "Access" and they're "Ego-Driven."
Another slide says: "What can you sell when you
do not have the White House, the House or the Senate?
Save the country from trending toward Socialism!"
Our braindead Democrats are going to stand there
and let the GOP paint them in every negtaive
Why can't our side learn?
People say, "Both parties are the same" but that's
One fights, one cheats, one steals.
The other party wets themselves in fear and crawls
under a table.
If only we could find a way to inject them with some Bartcopism.
Excerpt: All that's clear is Leno's not particularly straining
to keep the job now that he has it again.
Monday's monologue was detached, tired and short
on laughs; Tuesday brought more of the same,
including some of the same jokes and targets,
from Russian Olympians to Toyotas, airlines and George Bush.
Isn't there an air of desperation to this whole,
A going-through-the-motions feeling of retreat
instead of advance?
What you have is a show that now simply seems
to be too small for its platform ó and sadly adrift.
Which won't stop it from sailing on again tomorrow,
just as it did for 17 Leno-led years.
Here's to the next 17.

But the idiots in charge decided to "fix" that 50-plus year winning
Order bait & switch
NBC is truly the whore network.
For weeks they've been promoting the Kathy Griffin/Mariska
Hargitay lesbian kiss on SUV.
They even released the clip and the kiss was
just barely a peck on the lips, less than one second,
but in the episode last night they started to
kiss ...and stopped before their lips met.
And just like the Toyota deal, this is NOT about
the kiss, it's about NBC lying.
Of all the major networks, NBC is the worst.
I remember watching Homicide on NBC years ago,
and the preview editing was done
to make you think one thing was happening, but
in the episode the opposite was true.
Nobody lies to you more often than NBC.
I have a feeling Kathy Griffin is pissed about
the bait & switch but she's trying to get
an Emmy nomination out of this guest appearance
so she's going to play it cool.
