"Acting like a Latin American caudillo Obama continues to thumb his nose at Congress, 
  daring Republican members of the House of Representatives to begin impeachment proceedings against him."  
    -- Teabagger Matthew Vadum, on Obama making recess appointments,     Link

"Bush (W) did 170 recess appointments during his time in office. THAT is not the story here, 
  regardless of how the media will play this out. The story here is that Obama is finally admitting 
  he's done with trying to get along with his opposition. It's ok...the truth will set you free!"

1 in 6: Obama is the anti-Christ
Looks like we live in a really stupid country


A recent Harris poll asked whether each of 15 statements about Obama is true or false. In every case, 
the less schooling people had, the more likely they were to believe that false things are true.

For example, 18 percent of Americans with high school or less education think that the president may be
the Anti-Christ. That's right, nearly one out of five people who are eligible to vote, same as you, believe 
Obama is the bad guy in The Omen. But only 13 percent of people with some college believe that; and 
9 percent of college graduates; and down to 4 percent of people who've had some post-graduate education.

It's the same descending scale with "He is doing many of the things that Hitler did." Twenty-four percent of 
high-school-or-less say yes; 20 percent of some-college; 18 percent of college grads; but only 10 percent of 
post-grads. "He was not born in the United States and so is not eligible to be president": 32, then 22, then 21, then 7. 
"He is a Muslim": 43, 30, 24, 9. "He wants to turn over the sovereignty of the United States to a one world 
government": 37, 28, 21, 12. You get the idea.

I blame the Democrats for refusing to set the record straight.
Also, our side has no FOX News spewing lies and hate 24/7 "because that wouldn't be right.".

  But Ricky, if you're "proud" "fortunate" and "blessed" to be gay

Subject: Youth vote pays off 

Up until the 2008 election, young people didn't show up at the polls to make a difference. 
Old people showed up to vote and that's why politicians protect Medicare and Social Security. 
But in 2008 the youth showed up to vote and got involved in the election and Obama won. 
Because of that the banks no longer get a cut of the money allocated for student loans. 
Pell grants are way up. Students can now stay on their parents health insurance policy till they are 26.

Now those running for office are going after the youth vote because the youth showed up and voted. 
That is why it is important for young people to get politically active and stay active. When you show up 
and volunteer, when you organize students, when you show up and vote, when you make a difference in 
the outcome of elections then you get the benefits you are seeing now. 

The elections continue every two years and the fight never ends. You who are now 2 years older 
than you were can now train someone else who is now old enough to get active and vote. 
Voting is working for the young. I ask you to keep it up

Michael Tom Steele - pervert 


A glimpse into the sexual proclivities of California Republicans: "Eyepatch" underwear, 
a post-gay-club drunk-driving incident, and now, "a bondage-themed nightclub featuring 
topless women dancers imitating lesbian sex," with Michael Steele on the RNC dime.

Buried in a Daily Caller smackdown on Steele's choices of fancy hotels and flights 
while on the speaker and donor-stroking circuit is this little tidbit:

Once on the ground, FEC filings suggest, Steele travels in style. A February RNC trip, 
for example, included a $9,099 stop at the Beverly Hills Hotel, $6,596 dropped at the 
nearby Four Seasons, and $1,620.71 spent at Voyeur West Hollywood
a bondage-themed nightclub featuring topless women imitating lesbian sex.

Subject: American cars 

Hey Bart,
Houston in Seattle brought up a great point.  More Japanese cars are produced in the U.S. now 
than by the "American" car companies.  I read a couple of years ago that America's number 1 auto 
employer in the U.S. was Honda, followed by Toyota.  They produce parts and assemble them here.  

Meanwhile GM, Ford, & Chrysler all headed to other countries (Canada, Mexico) to save a few bucks.  
So when you buy an "American automobile" you are only lining the pockets of the owners and board of 
the company and very few workers here.  On the other hand, yes, when you buy a "Japanese" car 
Mr. Toyoda may get some money, but a heck of a lot of American employees actually get paid.
I remember my first new, off-the-showroom-floor car was a 1992 Chevy Camaro.  At the time, the tv ads 
for the Camaro announced "From the country that gave you rock-n-roll" and the GM ads stated 
"The heartbeat of America".  My Camaro was made in St. Therese, Quebec.  

So I guess Bachman-Turner Overdrive, Rush, and Neil Young invented Rock-n-Roll
and our collective heartbeat was in the french section of Canada?

Where Sarah Gets Her Guns


The fact that the Tea Party is almost exclusively white doesn't make it necessarily white supremacist, 
but like the KKK, the Tea Party, and their newfangled leader, Sarah Palin, oppose moderate Republicans 
in state elections in much the same way the Klan organized a southern resistance to Reconstruction using intimidation.

The difference, of course, is that the KKK spoke openly about racism and anti-semitism, and that they didn't 
just use violent imagery, or threats. They actually killed those Republicans whose politics were thought to be 
progressive, meaning those southern Republicans who favored emancipation. Tea Partiers, by contrast, hide 
behind code phrases, but when they speak of the expansion of "big government," and say that the public option 
is really reparation for slavery, the underlying meaning is the same.

Subject: Plant coming to Tulsa 

Dear Bart:

You're not going?

Big mistake.

Buddy Miller is one of the best guitarists Plant has ever worked with, and
I'm only leaving out one other to be nice to you.  Miller was a mainstay of
Emmylou Harris's Spyboy band for over a decade, emulating Daniel Lanois's
parts on the classic WRECKING BALL tracks.

I wish this tour was hitting the northeast, but NO, Plant is only playing
Okie-type bumfuck towns on this leg.

Or you can wait for OUTRIDER 2.

Best regards.

I can't stand country music unless it comes in a cute skirt.

"Romney is exactly right. The only real difference between Obama's bill and his is that 
  Massachusetts Democrats worked with their Republican governor Romney to pass their bill.
  Congressional Republicans, however, refused to cooperate with the President."

What's up with white people? 


Even though the Obama administration tried to stress the bill's benefits to all families -- insurance for folks 
with preexisting conditions, restrictions on companies dropping you when you get sick, letting kids stay on 
parents' policies until they're 26, as well as subsidies that will mainly go to middle- and working-class families 
(the poor are already covered by Medicaid) -- a Gallup survey found that 57 percent of white respondents 
said that the bill would help the uninsured, and 52 percent said that it would improve conditions for low-income 
families. Only a third of whites thought it would benefit the country, and shockingly, only 20 percent thought it 
would benefit their family. (Nonwhites polled were more likely to say the bill would help their families.)

Those doubts were especially pronounced among white voters with less than a college education, Gallup found
-- the group that most resisted candidate Obama in 2008. They're the least likely to say the plan would benefit 
the country, even though they're more than twice as likely to lack health insurance as college-educated whites. 
We can shake our heads at their ignorance, perhaps even racism, or we can try to understand the roots of their 
doubt. Brownstein points to a Stanley Greenberg poll that found these whites are reaching a tipping point that 
could send them even more enthusiastically toward Republicans this year. He also notes that among the 34 
House Democrats who opposed the healthcare reform bill, 28 percent come from districts with a higher than 
average percentage of non-college educated whites in their districts.

This Pope's gotta go 


Milwaukee has now replaced Boston as the epicenter of priest sexual crimes against children. 

Nothing matches what happened in my city of Milwaukee, with over 200 deaf boys repeatedly molested 
and raped by Rev. Lawrence Murphy, a priest who was never punished and who was buried, after a 
lifetime of child rape, with full priestly honors.

Pope Benedict XVI now faces a major hypocrisy test. He has been accepting resignations from bishops 
around the world who failed to take action against priest rapists. It is now no longer in dispute that he 
himself is guilty of the same criminal negligence in the Milwaukee case and in Germany when he was archbishop.

The pope can only serve the church by resigning. If he were in charge of some secular institution, 
he would be forced to resign and be subject to criminal prosecution. He has no moral right to hide behind Vatican walls.

Does the Milwaukee District Attorney have a position on child rape?

We May Get Burned
 by Piggy Noonan

 Whore Street Journal

What I keep thinking of is a beehive. A modern, high tech, highly politicized democracy is a busy beehive, 
and sometimes the bees are angry, and sometimes someone comes by and sticks a big sharp stick in the hive. 
The biggest thing Washington should do right now is stop it, stop poking the stick.

The beehive was already angry about a million things a year ago, and most of those things, obviously, were not 
the fault of the administration. People are angry at their economic vulnerability. They are angry at the deterioration 
of our culture, angry at our nation's deteriorating position in the world, at our debts and deficits, our spending and
taxing, our threatened security in a world of weapons of mass destruction. Their anger is stoked by cynical 
politicians and radio ranters and people who come home at night, have a few drinks, and spew out their rage 
on the comment thread. It's a world full of people always cocking the gun and ready to say, if things turn bad,
'But I didn't tell anyone to shoot!'

And yes, this mood, this anger, has only been made worse by this yearlong, enervating, exhausting, enraging fight 
over health care. The administration is full of people who are so bright, and led by one who is very bright, and yet
they have a signal failure: They do not know what time it is. They cannot see how high the temperature is. 
They cannot for the life of them understand that they raise it.
