"One year after U.S stocks hit their post-financial-crisis low on March 9, 2009, Standard & Poor's 
  500 Index has risen more than 68 percent, and it's up more than 41 percent since Obama took office. 
  Credit spreads have narrowed. Commodity prices have surged. Housing prices have stabilized." 
    -- Mike Dorning at   Link

 It's better than that - the stock market tanked at 6800 or so and it's at 10,558 as I type this.
 My good Catholic math says that's about a 55% increase in one year.   That's Clinton-esque!

"We’ve had a phenomenal run in asset classes across the board. If Pbama was a Republican, we'd
  hear a never-ending drumbeat of news stories about markets voting in favor of the president."

Toyotas - Look at the Facts

Yesterday's lead story was of the 2005 Toyota that went wild.

Why would a car that, presumeably drove perfect for up to five years,
suddenly run wild after similar reports were publicized in the media? 

The Toyota is a "sleeper cell" that didn't go wild until it got the order.
The Toyota is trying to get its picture in the paper and on TV.
The driver gets his left-right confused sometimes.

What else could explain it?
The explanation is staring us in the face - what is it saying?

If it's a worn part, the new cars wouldn't have the problem.
If a newer, cheaper part fails, why are older, dependable parts failing?
If it's the electronics, why are 2005 and 2010 electronics going bad at the same time?

Or is it the lying whore media, seeing a chance to pile on?

Subject: exploding Chevy trucks

Bart, it was NBC who had that rigged exploding truck scandal.

They were doing a segment in 1992 on the then-new show "Dateline" 
and they used model rocket engines to ignite spilled fuel from a Chevy truck.

Bottom line: NBC apologized, producers of the segment were fired.

Now that's unlike Fox "news," where they keep people who screw up,

At FOX, if you lie good enough you get your own hate show.

Toyota could be innocent
 But only if you back al Qaeda...


Reports of sudden acceleration in the Toyota Prius have spiked across the country. 
But that doesn't mean there's an epidemic of bad gas pedals in the popular hybrid.

Experts on consumer psychology say the relentless negative media attention Toyota has received 
since the fall makes it much more likely that drivers will mistake anything unexpected — or even a 
misplaced foot — for actual danger.

"When people expect problems, they're more likely to find them," said Lars Perner, a professor 
of clinical marketing at Marshall School of Business at University of Southern California.

In just the first 10 weeks of this year, 272 complaints have been filed nationwide for 
speed problems according to a Whore AP analysis of unverified complaints received by the NHTSA.

By comparison, only 72 complaints were filed in all of last year, 
and just 8 complaints the year before that.

Yet the complaints come flying in from the 2005 models?

Can't you smell the Cuervo Gold when it hits your nose? 

How is it possible for a 2005 model to go crazy after the 2010 models go wild?

We're being lied to - I'll put money on it.

Any gamblers out there want to bet Toyota is guilty?

Subject: ABC News faked runaway Toyota footage

Bart, you wrote: 

> It's another runaway Toyota, in park, with the doors wide open.

But, didn’t you hear that the driver *had* to put the car in park to try and slow it down? 
When that didn’t work, he figured the wind resistance from the open doors would help slow the car. 
Of course, in order to open the passenger doors, he had to undo his seatbelt. Once all of that didn’t work, 
he figured he would try that “emergency brake” thing people have been talking about. 

And that’s how he got the tach down to 6000 RPM.

Pretty simple, really. ;)

Subject: Toyota

I'd say there is beginning to appear some damning evidence now:


Funny how Toyota's behavior is beginning to resemble that of big tobacco...
And it is certainly not that I have any sort of axe to grind against Toyota...

I believe you compared them to an industry that intentionally kills 400k people per year.

I just want to see their true colors...let's see these "Books of Knowledge." 
They operate the same as any other corporation; the same short-sighted bottom line mentality. 

I doubt you can be Number One in quality by short-sighting the bottom line.

The idea that consumer safety enters their equation other than meeting 
minimum government imposed standards is laughable.
 Michael Y 

I disagree.
If the government says your roof must hold the weight of the car, how much 
should a company spend to, say, be sure their roofs hold double the weight?

Like I've said many times, if they're guilty, I'll bring the rope
but this rouge lawyer is making an accusation - that's not evidence.

Look! It's Paris Hilton in Der Monkey's car!

by Bruce Yurgil

They're trying to be funny but it's true.

Toyota owners are amazed by the quality
and they ask themselves, "Why did I buy 
those broken sleds for so many years?"

To me, the runaway Toyota is like a flying saucer.
I won't believe until in lands on my front lawn.

Subject: TX Educ. Agncy new curriculum

There's no doubt that Texas Education Agency is well on it's way to "conservatize" students in Texas 
and surrounding states. From quick glance, here are just a few changes board members wish to make 
in US History from 1877 curriculum: 

add Clinton impeachment (nothing about Andrew Johnson), 
removal of words such as reconstruction, labor movement, US imperialism, child labor, etc. 
Removed reading requirement of The Jungle.
Added new items such as Social Gospel.    More 

We should all be calling or email TEA (on fox website). Scary stuff.

I printed that because I knew Arianna would reject it for it's "conspiratorial" tone.

And yes, future generations will know all about Monica, but nothing about Iran-Contra,
stolen elections, 9-11 and how Saddam financed it and Bush's Godly Crusades, and how
Jim Inhofe road dinosaurs to work and how the magical dinosaur farts caused global warming.

Subject: Toyotas 

Why the hell doesn't some responsible journalist ask the right questions? 
Like why did the guy go 20 miles with a supposed runaway car before he pushed the OFF button? 
How about you throw it in neutral you moron? 

Go back in history and look at Audi's unintended acceleration problem 
and you will find it ended up being nothing. In most cases it was the guy 
pushing on the go fast pedal instead of the brake.
 Brent in Napa

Brent, the media won't ask the right questions for the same reason 
that they don't ask a screaming teabagger what he wants "back."

Their objective is to get a screaming handjob on TV.

Solving society's problems is the government's job, but for some reason,
Obama's federal government has either chosen not to inspect the crashed cars
or they have inspected them and they're keeping the results to themselves..

I say either way we're being lied to - why?

MSNBC Tried to Shut Me Up
  by Jesse Ventura (pre Gulf War)


When it came to the topic of the media though, Gov. Ventura had an inside look on a conspiracy 
that was out in the open - MSNBC's effort to shut down all voices against the Iraq War. The way they 
took Phil Donahue and Ashleigh Banfield off the air because of their views on the Iraq War is well documented. 
Now, Ventura explains his experience with MSNBC at the time:

Ventura: Well, the great example is myself. When I came out of office, I was the hottest commodity out there.
I was the voice of the independent. CNN, MSNBC, and Fox got in a bidding war for me. MSNBC won. 
I went to do my show, they were putting together a five-day-a-week show for me, and then all of a sudden, 
a phone call came to one of my subordinates, and they said, "Is it true that the Governor doesn't support the 
war in Iraq?" This was right before, as the Iraq war was going on, getting ready to hype up. And they said no. 
There was a deafening pause at the other end. They said, "Does New Jersey know about this?" And the person said, 
"I don't know." And then they said, "Is there a chance he'd change his mind?" And this person that worked with me 
four years at the Capitol, he said, "I don't think so." Because he said, the Governor's pretty staunch when he gets, 
you know, you'd really have to sway him. And the war ain't gonna sway him. Well, it turned out they wouldn't put 
me on the air. They paid me for all three years, they pulled my show, and I sat and collected paychecks and I couldn't 
say anything because my contract said I couldn't do any cable nor any news shows for three years. Yeah.

Uygur: That's really interesting because that's exactly what they did to Ashleigh Banfield. When she made the speech 
against the Iraq War, they literally put her in a closet and paid the rest of her contract so she couldn't talk to anyone else.

Ventura: Yep. And they did it also, if you recall, to Phil Donahue.

Uygur: That's right.

Ventura: They had just hired Phil. Phil was their highest-rated show when they pulled him. Have you ever heard of a 
network pulling its highest-rated show? Never. And remember, this was at the time that MSNBC was trying to be Fox Lite.

Is that why MSNBC finally hired some liberals?
Because they became known as MSGOP?

Subject: Speeding Toyota 


Let's say I'm driving my Toyota Prius at 90 on the freeway (and I know it can go over 100 from personal experience). 
I zip past a parked cop car that starts to pull out to follow me.  So I grab my cell phone, call 911, and say, 
"Help! My Toyota's running away with me!" 

Think I could get out of the speeding ticket?

"Rush Limbaugh was among the conservatives who jumped on the Eric Massa bandwagon yesterday, 
  devoting a chunk of his show to hailing Massa. But it wasn't that long ago that Massa was calling Rush 
  a "pompous coward" whose show is "destructive to this country." Maybe Rush found out about that, 
  because on today's show, Rush has reportedly flipped and is doing all he can to disavow Massa."

MMA Rumors

The GOP's bait-and-switch game
  by Gene Lyons


No one should be shocked by a RNC fundraising document recently uncovered by Politico. 
With condescension bordering upon satire, it divides potential GOP donors into two groups: 
simple-minded dimwits and wealthy egotists.

The key to raising cash from small donors, according to a PowerPoint presentation given by 
RNC operatives Rob Bickhart and Peter Terpeluk at a retreat in Boca Grande, Fla., is to dazzle them 
with scare talk about "Socialism," images of President Obama as "the Joker," Nancy Pelosi as 
"Cruella de Vil" and other bright, shiny objects. The idea is to exploit "visceral" emotions, "fear" 
and "extreme negative feelings" toward Obama.

Similar tactics have, of course, been used by shameless broadcast evangelists to pry open the
piggy banks of elderly shut-ins since the invention of mass media. The antichrist will get you if you don't watch out!

Just imagine the uproar that would have attended the DNC's caricaturing President Bush as, say, 
a Nazi prison guard from "Hogan's Heroes," or as Wile E. Coyote, the incompetent cartoon predator. 
But when it comes to Obama, anything goes...

Subject: What is a Democrat to do? 

Democrats are wondering what to do about health care reform. Do they vote for it or let it die? 
The Republicans and the big insurance companies want very much for health care reform to fail.

So if the Democrats don't know what to do, maybe they should do the opposite of what the Republicans 
want them to do. Democrats can win if they find the courage to make the Republicans fail to stop reform.

Tally's Lost Review 


Buzzcook's Idol Review 


Survivor is on tonight and we may have another First.

The previews tell us James goes down, but I hear a sound I've never heard before.
I'm thinking it's the sound of multiple foot bones breaking.

Also, for those of you who've never seen Survivor or haven't seen it in a while,
tune at at about 45 minutes into it and check out their Treehouse at Tribal Council.

(Could somebody do a screen grab of the treehouse tonight?).

Holy Moley, it's forty feet high and it's beautiful.
And since they're in a jungle at night, the stars are out and there's no light but their torches.

The torches make everybody look great, like they're bathed in black light.
Bonus - if it's raining or storming, she show goes on.
They conduct business in a downpour as tho it's not happening.
What's prettier than fire in a monster thunderstorm?

It may be the best photographed show on the major networks.

Note: The dreaded Russell was in Tulsa last weekend at the Hard Rock Casino 
signing autographs so we know the season is over.   I wonder who won?
