Tense Debt Quotes
"Am I dealing with Boehner or am I dealing with you?"
     --  Obama, to Cantor for speaking while Beohner remained silent at the table      Link

"As long as this president is in the Oval Office, a real solution is probably unattainable,"
     --  Mitch the Bitch, on why he can't work with Blacks      Link

"If Mitch McConnell thinks caving to Obama and allowing him to raise the debt ceiling
  without cuts is the way to become Senate majority leader, he is sorely mistaken."

     --  Brent Bozell (R- Bozo) who thinks he's running the GOP        Link

Yes, the GOP has created a monster they can't control.

For years, the GOP has screamed "Obama is the Great Satan," and now
the Teabaggers can't figure out why their leaders want to negotiate with Satan.

Obama: Don't Call My Bluff
I thought poker was Enemy Number One


"I have shown enormous willingness to compromise and have taken huge heat for it," Obama said,
"but my responsibility is to the American people and there comes a point when I need to say, 'Enough.'"
"It cannot all be on us," the president said, arguing that Republicans need to give on the revenue
side of things as Democrats are willing to do so on spending cuts.
"Don't call my bluff," the president said. "I am not afraid to veto and I will take it to the American people."
If Moody's, the credit rating agency that announced a review of US credit, downgrades the United States,
President Obama said, "it will be a tax increase on every American."
There needs to be a long-term debt extension, the president argued.
"This may bring my presidency down, but I will not yield on this," he said.

I want Obama to win this (he has to) but he's cried "Wolf!' so many times,
why wouldn't the Repugs call his bluff?

...and fuck Moody's - they are bought-and-paid-for worms.

Who would trust Moodys before they'd trust a US Savings Bond?

Where was Moodys in 2007 when Bush's Wall Street buddies were selling
guaranteed shit in Gucci packaging to every bank in the Northern Hemisphere?

Key Players in the Phone Hacking Scandal
So many guilty bastards, it's hard top keep them straight.

This scandal needs some sex to make it sizzle.

Subject: Obama pissed of his base?
Bart:  Obama has raised $87 million this quarter.  A majority in donations of less than $250. 
This is more than all the republican primary contenders combined.

Jane Hamsher and you are not the base. 
Nor are the endless nattering douchebags on the daily kos, or on democraticunderground.com

I am the base.

Jason, I'm sure Obama appreciates the 55 million votes you're going to cast for him.

Murdoch whistleblower murdered?


'Someone's coming to get me': Terrified phone-hacking whistleblower
feared for his life before he was found dead .  Sean Hoare found dead at his flat.

Ex NotW reporter's claims last autumn reignited scandal
Mr Hoare claimed Coulson's denials of phone hacking were 'a lie'

Police probing former showbiz reporter's 'suicide'
Friends suggest he may have died of natural causes
Post mortem being carried out this morning

There are so many guilty people in this story,
it's hard to keep them all straight when you have an IQ of 64.

I watched some of Murdoch lying earlier today.
He said he knew nothing about NotW and their hacking.

He lied, "I have 50,000 employees and NotW was less than 1% of my vast empire."

Of course he's a lying bastard.

When you own the world's biggest gossip rag, that keeps getting wild scoop after wild scoop,
how are you NOT going to ask, "How are they able to pull this off week after week?"

Even if they find Murdoch is super-guilty, his doctors will say "he's too old and too sick"
to go to prison and his vast army of liars, Beck, Hannity, Pigboy, O'Reilly etc will spend
all of their time defending him and our broke-dick media will probably agree with them.

And did you see that clip Jon Stewart played?
One slug on FOX said, "Should we talk about that story?"
and they all agreed the Murdoch story wasn't worth mentioning.

When you own the media, you own history.
Murdoch will go down as a great man, like war hero Bush.

Hey Bart,

As it is, your site works fine on older browsers. 
I use Firefox 2.0, which is the latest version that is compatible with Windows 98. 
I can't upgrade because I have an old computer. 

Sadly, sites like Slashdot and Lifehacker made changes that prevent me from using their sites

An original work by investigative reporter Richard L. Fricker has been launched from the
veranda of exotic Rancho Fricardo. A noticeable departure from his coverage of politics,
drug wars, the Middle East, courtrooms, cops, spooks and kooks, Martian Llama Racing
provides insight to an investigative reporter’s world view when the dust has cleared, the chips
counted and last call served. Drawn from laser like recollections and fog encrusted semi-memories,
Fricker offers a sometimes rather cynical view of a world hampered by dimensional collisions
and human frailty. Using his somewhat twisted wit and insight he will lead you from Hong Kong to
Bogota, Ottawa to Mexico City, Jerusalem and back to Tulsa (via the southern route).
Relax and enjoy, it won’t hurt. Much.



"Just heard Michele Bachmann’s OH SO CHRISTIAN husband talk about ‘Gays’
  in the most UNCHRISTIAN way - WTF!     Please u-tube this asshole and tell me
  what u think … Cause My Gay-Dar is GOING OFF!!!”
-- Cher, who Kathy Griffin says has the best gaydar in America     Link


  I don't care if this guy is gay or note - it's none of my business.

- he sells "gay cures" for a living.

 He runs a clinic to change God's
"barbarian" children
 into something slightly less hideous for God to look at.

 This handjob is taking advantage of the religiously-insane and the hopelessy-trapped.
 Will having a dangeriously insane, self-loathing psychotic handjob for a husband
 hurt or help Batshit's candidacy?

Subject: I still miss Clinton


Keep Swingin' the Hammer,
 Paul  Q

President Obama has previously ruled out the so-called constitutional option in the debt debate,
under which he would claim the 14th Amendment allows him to continue borrowing and simply
ignore the debt ceiling. Bill Clinton, however, would have no such qualms: He’d use the option
“without hesitation, and force the courts to stop me,” he tells Joe Conason, adding,
“I think the Constitution is clear.”

That's bold talk.
I miss him, too.

Obama seems to want to do things differently than Clinton.
So far, that approach hasn't worked well for him.

If Obama created 24M jobs,
I think the country would forgive a fling with an intern.

Those Dangerous GOP Juveniles
 by loyalty-disabled Robert Reich

I've spent enough of my life in Washington to take its theatrics with as much seriousness as a Seinfeld episode.
A large portion of what passes for policy debate isn't at all - it's play-acting for various constituencies. The actors
know they're acting, as do their protagonists on the other side who are busily putting on their own plays for their
own audiences.
Typically, though, back stage is different. When the costumes and grease paint come off, compromises are made,
deals put together, legislation hammered out. Then at show time the players announce the results - spinning them
to make it seem they've kept to their parts.
At least that's the standard playbook.
But this time there's no back stage. The kids in the GOP have trashed it. The GOP's experienced actors - Boehner
and McDonnell - have been upstaged by juveniles like Cantor and Bachmann, who don't know the difference
between playacting and governing. They're in league with Tea Party fanatics who hate government so much
they're willing to destroy the full faith and credit of the United States. Washington has gone from theater to
reality TV - a game of hi-jinks chicken that could end in a crash.
So now the GOP's experienced actors are trying to retake the stage. They've set a vote Tuesday for a so-called
"cut, cap, and balance" plan - featuring an immediate $100 billion-plus cut from next year's budget and a
constitutional amendment requiring a balanced budget.
The plan would be a disaster for the nation, of course - a cut of that magnitude when the economy is still
struggling to get out of recession would plunge it back in, and a balanced-budget amendment would make it
impossible to counteract future recessions with extra spending and tax cuts.

We've seen this movie before.
Republicans KNOW this is a losing issue for them - but they can't let it go.

Remember during impeachment when 70% of the country wanted them to stop?
They KNOW the shutdown will be blamed on them, but they can't help themselves.

I don't think crazy people should be allowed to govern.

"The Republican Party would be well advised to get the heck out of people's bedrooms
  and let these things get decided by states.  
We'd be a much more successful political party
  if we stuck to our economic, conservative roots..."
    -- Rudy Giuliani, who once lived with gay men,    Link

 By saying that, Rudy is scolding Bachmann and demanding the Rethugs take a stand.
 He's saying, "We need a sane candidate (like me) or we're going to lose next year."

 It'll be interesting to see what percentage of the GOP is still sane.

 Or does it matter?
 If Bachmann wins Iowa, close second in New Hampster and then wins Carolina,
 what could stop her from running the GOP-crazy table?

Subject: Republicans can't do deficit reduction with Obama?

Mitch McConnell said he did not see a way for Republicans and Democrats to come to agreement
on meaningful deficit reduction as long as President Obama remains in office.

WOW! And we're supposed to believe that?

When the Republicans were in power under Bush they turned Clinton's surplus into the current
economic disaster. But they don't talk about Bush any more because Bush is a 4 letter word.

Now they want us to believe they are the solution to fiscal responsibility?
You've got to be kidding me!

Madness is rare in individuals - but in groups,

Tucker: Batshit is a Pillhead
Shoddy work by a shoddy reporter


The Minnesota Republican frequently suffers from stress-induced medical episodes that she has
characterized as severe headaches. These episodes, say witnesses, occur once a week on average
and can “incapacitate” her for days at time. On at least three occasions, Bachmann has landed in
the hospital as a result.

“She has terrible migraine headaches. And they put her out of commission for a day or more at a time.
They come out of nowhere, and they’re unpredictable,” says an adviser to Bachmann who was involved i
n her 2010 congressional campaign. “They level her. They put her down. It’s actually sad. It’s very painful.”

Bachmann has been hospitalized three times in the last... some unknown number of years.
(And one of those trips to the hospital was reported to be an appendicitis attack, apparently?)
But she gets bad headaches every week! And some people (one unnamed former aide, and "sources")
say that disqualifies her to be president.

Maybe it's the headaches that make her a habitual liar?

Getting to Crazy
  by Paul Krugman


There aren’t many positive aspects to a U.S. debt default. But there has been
an element of comic relief  in the spectacle of so many people who have been
in denial suddenly waking up and smelling the crazy.

Commentators seem shocked at how unreasonable Republicans are being.
“Has the G.O.P. gone insane?” they ask.

Why, yes, it has. But this isn’t something that just happened, it’s the culmination
of a process that has been going on for decades. Anyone surprised by the extremism
and irresponsibility now on display either hasn’t been paying attention, or has been
deliberately turning a blind eye.

To those suddenly agonizing over the mental health of one of our two major parties:
People like you bear some responsibility for that party’s current state.

Paul Krugman - he shoots, he scores!

We've been writing about the religiously insane handjobs for a decade and a half.
Are voters finally realizing they've been supportring insanity all this damn time?

Maybe, if we get lucky, America might start moving forward again.

Drove thru Joplin last weekend.

We got off on the main drag, Range Line Road, and drove north.
First thing I saw was a trailer with a banner that said, "Emergency relief" or something like that.

The first mile was mostly normal, then you could start to see the damage.
A store with part of their sign missing, then farther north, more damage and it kept getting worse.
About two miles north of I-44, the destruction was complete.

The trees looked like something from a sci-fi movie and then there was vast amounts of nothing.
.I didn't take any pictures - you've all seen what happened but it started getting creepy so we
turned about and headed back to the highway.
It's the first big disaster I've ever seen up-close.

In St Louis, we saw several people wearing "rebuild Joplin" shirts.
At the concert, Bono dedicated Moment of Surrender to Joplin.

Another high point, when we saw them last October, U2 was trying to free Aung San Suu Kyi.


They succeeded, so this time she was on the big screen thanking Bono and U2
and the fans for putting pressure on Burma's military to release her.

It was hot in St Louis, (but not as hot as Minnesota!  Hang in there, Cory!)

My favorite part was during Elevation, when 56,000 people were doing that Indian war cry.
(During the song, Bono invited the "U2 360º" chested guys onto the stage.)

Set List:
Even Better Than The Real Thing, The Fly, Mysterious Ways, Until the End of the World,
I Will Follow, Get On Your Boots, I Still Haven't Found What I'm Looking For,
Many Rivers to Cross, Stay, Beautiful Day - Space Oddity, Elevation, Pride, Miss Sarajevo,
Zooropa, City of Blinding Lights, Vertigo, I'll Go Crazy (remix) - Discotheque - Life During Wartime
Psycho Killer, Sunday Bloody Sunday, Scarlet, Walk On

One, Hallelujah - Where the Streets Have No Name,
Hold Me Thrill Me Kiss Me Kill Me, With or Without You, Moment of Surrender

Nobody delivers like U2.
They're the opposite of Bob Dylan - they make sure you have a great time.
