"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 Bloomberg.com
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!

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

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?
Excerpt: 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?

How is it possible for a 2005 model to go crazy after the 2010 models
We're being lied to - I'll put money on it.
Any gamblers out there want to bet Toyota is guilty?
> 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.

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

Excerpt: 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
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?
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." -- David Kurtz, maybe Howie's brother?

Excerpt: 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...
Democrats are wondering what to do about health

The Republicans and the big insurance companies

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.
