Excerpt: As Virginia Thomas tells it in her soft-spoken,
white cadence, the story of her involvement in the "tea bagger"
movement is the tale of an average citizen in
"I am an ordinary citizen from Omaha, Neb., who
just may have the chance to preserve liberty along with
you and other people like you," she said at a
recent panel discussion with tea party leaders in Washington.
Thomas went on to count herself among those energized
into action by President Obama's "hard-left agenda."
But Thomas is no ordinary activist.
She is the white wife of Supreme Court Justice
Clarence "Slappy" Thomas, and she has launched a
tea-bagger group that could test the traditional
notions of political impartiality for the court.
In January, Virginia Thomas created Liberty Central
Inc., a nonprofit teabagging group whose website
will organize activism around a set of conservative
"core principles," she said.
Mrs Slappy plans to issue score cards for Congress
members and be involved in the November election.
She said it would accept donations from corporations
-- as allowed recently by the Supreme Court.
Let's say I just bought a new Toyota before
the bust. Since then, I lost my job and can't pay my bills and I can't
pay my rent. I'm going to have to get rid of
my expenses until I can find another job, but I'm going to lose a
boatload of cash if I sell the Toyota as used,
and not making payments will destroy my credit.
But, hey.... I've heard about that "unintended
acceleration" problem. You think that if I crank up my car and
run it into a wall, then claim that "the car
just ran away from me!" I might be able to return the car and get my
money back? "I'll never drive THAT car again!"
Subject: Ford makes good cars
I'm not getting into a trash Toyota thing, here,
because I've never driven one. This is more of a Ford
I drive Fords. My current car is a 2005
Focus. I bought it new, it'll be paid for in May, and I have had
no problems with it. It gets great mileage.
My sister has a 2003 Taurus station wagon and has had similar luck.
The maintenance costs have been low, and I put
a lot of miles on a car every year.
I drive GMs occasionally for work. They
are not built as well as Ford's vehicles. Chrysler makes even worse
cars than GM or KIA. Ford makes better
cars than either of the other two American companies, and that's
because they are competing with Toyota, and offering
products (like my Focus) that are as good as Toyota's products.
The only difference between a Focus and a Celica
is that one is made here, by UAW workers.
"It's not fair to tar lawyers with the crimes
of their clients. You could never have anyone defending a murderer or a rapist or anything
like that and we do have a system where you get a fair defense but ...turnabout is fair play. Look at
what the left did to the lawyers in the Justice Department who were trying to give advice under the Bush
administration. They were singled out." -- right-wing liar Amy Holmes,
Lady, it's not the same.
The Constitution says defendents get to have a lawyer.
What Bush did was hand-pick some puppets who told him it was
OK to commit crimes.
It's not the same and your lying ass knows it.
Bush cronies might've been "signled out" but they weren't brought
because the Democrats are too scared to call them on their crimes.
Subject: Can Republican succeed
by working to make America fail?
This November, when Americans vote in the mid-term
elections for Congress, if the Democrats have passed
health care reform, banking regulations, and
consumer credit card protection, and if Democrats have a record
of accomplishment - and they did it all without
a single Republican vote - then Democrats are going to win big.
So in order for Republicans to win they have to
make sure that America fails. Republicans have to work
against the interest of the people and then try
to blame it on the Democrats in order to win.
Republicans could have chosen to work with Democrats
and share in the glory of fixing the problems that they
created under Bush, but Republicans chose not
to do that. Republican are counting on voter anger to win.
I think the idea of winning through failure is
a really bad idea. Republicans have a duty to America to work
in the best interest of the people rather than
in the best interest of themselves.
Let me tell you about my old friend Joe the bouncer at my Hard Rock
Island Club, 1985-1987.
Twenty five months ago, he was sitting in his living room, minding his
when he heard his car start up and drive away. Knowing that he
wasn't driving it,
he deduced that it was being stolen so he ran after it.
I know you're thinking, "Why did Joe think
he could catch his car?" He installed a kill switch in the car that kills the motor after one
minute of driving.
So he pulled the little bastard out and the punk stabbed him in the
shoulder with a screw driver.
Joe is a very level-headed guy and I hired him because he's NOT a go-postal
but when he saw his blood he proceeded to go medieval on his young
Of course, nothing too serious - it's not like he used a blow torch
and needle-nosed pliers
but he did punch the kid repeatedly in the face.
He didn't knock the kid's teeth out or break any bones, he was just
enjoying a beatdown
when a cop driving buy sees him and then the shit hit the fan. F-ing
cops, always there when
you don't need 'em... Joe has a ring that says "Joe"
on his punching hand and that kid had
"Joe" stamped all over his face.
I don't know what happened to the young car thief, he probably got a
stern talking to but Joe got 400 hours of community service and he had to go to anger
He tried to explain to the judge that he's an easy-going guy, which
he is, but the judge
told him he was going to get 800 hours if he didn't shut the hell up
There's no big ending to this story - it's just another one of life's
Little bastard steals his car and Joe's the one pissing in a cup for
Excerpt: Did the driver of a runaway Toyota Prius in San
Diego tell the truth when he said his accelerator pedal stuck
earlier this week? New evidence is calling the
driver's credibility into question, although the real answer will not
be entirely clear until Toyota and the NHTSA
announce the results of their investigation which is due in the
summer of 2017. Details about the driver,
James Sikes, leave us wondering if he had ulterior motives for his claims.
USA Today and Jalopnik.com are directly
asking the question as to whether or not he faked the incident,
citing previous issues with debt and repeated
insurance claims as reason for their doubts.
The reports indicate that prior to his unintended
acceleration "incident," James Sikes and his wife -- both realtors
-- found themselves grappling with California's
notorious housing bubble and filed for bankruptcy in 2008.
Reports show they have $700,000 in debt to their
names. He already had a motor home, a Mercedes and
a Dodge Truck repossessed in the proceedings
Among the creditors to whom he owes payments is
Toyota Financial Services. Perhaps even more damaging
are reports that Sikes has a long history of
items being stolen from him, for which he then filed insurance claims.
Well, what do you know?
He didn't want to pay for his car so he faked
"an incident" to get out of it.
"Take the poll numbers on reform with a grain
of salt. Republican opposition is like 95-5, which skews overall polls. The important
thing is how it plays among independents. They're opposed now, but hardly by
overwhelming margins. By changeable margins, if they can be persuaded to see the
benefits." -- Michael Tomasky,
Excerpt: Why haven't America's old-school news organizations
blown the whistle on Roger Ailes, chief of Fox News,
for using the network to conduct a propaganda
campaign against Obama -- a campaign without precedent in history?
Ailes has overturned standards of fairness and
objectivity. Yet, many members of my profession seem to stand by in silence
as Ailes tears up the rulebook. This is not a
liberal-versus-conservative issue. It is a matter of Fox turning reality
on its head
with its endless repetition of its uber-lie:
"The American people do not want health-care reform."
Journalists of my generation who once prided themselves
on blowing whistles and afflicting the comfortable
have also been intimidated by Fox's financial
power and expanding audience.
There's your answer - the cowards are afraid to speak the truth - afraid
that FOX will come after them.
So why doesn't some young journalist want to become famous as
the person who exposed FOX as the lying whores they are?
Excerpt: This isn't getting much attention in the US,
but it's a big one: The Pope's in trouble.
Trouble, trouble. Not-going-away trouble. Run-out-of-office
trouble. It's a potentially transformative
moment in matters of religion and of power, wherein
even the infallible turns out to be vulnerable.
It's the priest sex story, the same one we've
already done -- and done. But now it's popping up in Germany, Austria,
the Netherlands, all markets which make the American
news media yawn. But come on. The priest sex story is one of the
best we've had. It's one of the ones that the
media of our time is going to be remembered for. It's the ultimate destruction
of facade; the giving of voice to silence; the
catching of deer and hypocrites in the headlights. It's our triumph.
It's also, on the other hand, our shame. Because
who hasn't known for generations that that's what priests were doing?
And yet the story went untold."
Excerpt: With his celebrity, Beck is drawing big ratings.
But there is a deep split within Fox between those -- led by Roger Ailes
-- who are supportive, and many journalists who
are worried that Beck is becoming the face of the network.
By calling Obama a racist and branding progressivism
a "cancer," Beck has achieved a lightning-rod status. And that has
complicated the channel's efforts to neutralize
White House criticism that Fox is not really a news organization. Beck
become a constant topic of conversation among
Fox whore journalists, some of whom say they believe he uses distorted
inflammatory rhetoric and that undermines their
Katie Couric asked Beck about critics who say
he "resorts to inflammatory, unfair, despicable, hateful rhetoric." Beck's
"Did they say that when I was saying the same
things about George W. Bush, or is this new?" (Beck has criticized Bush,
with the harsh language he employs against Obama.)
Asked if he regretted saying the president has
a "deep-seated hatred for white people or the white culture," Beck said:
"I'm sorry the way it was phrased." But he would
not respond when Couric read a Twitter user's question on what he
meant by white culture, saying: 'I'm not going
to get into your sound-bite gotcha game.'
It's gotta be weird at FOX.
They wanted Hannity to be their big star, but
O'Reilly got higher ratings.
Now O'Reilly is playing second fiddle to the
unhinged Beck, a crying clown at a network of clowns.
Excerpt: I feel comfortable talking now, because Johnny
went public and made a statement admitting paternity.
I didn't feel like I could ever speak until he
did that. Because had I spoken, I would have emasculated him.
And I could not emasculate him. Also, it is not
my desire to teach my daughter that when Mommy's upset
with Daddy, you take matters into your own hands
and fix Daddy's mistakes. Which I view as one of the
biggest problems in all female-and-male relationships.
I'm so old, I remember a time when it wasn't cool
to screw married people..
Maybe Obama doesn't care about the United States
(as in neglecting to come to work)
because he has his sights set on a global scale.
Maybe he's thinking the good old US will be insignificant
within the structure of the New World Order,
as borders are dissolved and corporate globalization
reigns without challenge.
It is also interesting to note that Obama's mentor
is Zbigniew Brzezinski,
who openly advocates an oil war between Russia
and China, thereby decimating
the two other superpowers in contention for world
power, leaving Obama 'King of the World'.
None of this may be true, but the fact remains
that Obama refuses to come to work.
Bush was stupid, so we kind of expected stupidity,
but Obama's supposed to be smart.
