So much stupid (part 2). The Kingmakers, Global Warming denied and the key is not Keystone

Share

Continuing from Monday, there was plenty of stupidity to report last week. A man that had no business even being in Afghanistan was overextended to the point tragedy. And there was the stupidity of a Media that inflicts John McCain upon us for yet one more Sunday show appearance to critique the man he lost to. Do […]

The List II: Rick Perry

Share

Dumb. No other word better sums up Texas Governor and “George W Bush wannabe” Gov. Rick “Good Hair” Perry. Not just ANY kind of dumb, but that special kind of Palin-dumb found only amongst rural Evangelical governors from oil-producing states. This is a man that threatened Texas might secede from the union if Congress passed “ObamaCare”. And the reason […]

EARLY EDITION: Perry’s “Jobs” Plan by the numbers. I hope you like oil.

Share

EARLY EDITION Rick Perry finally released his “Energizing American Jobs and Security” plan Friday (click here to download from me w/o having to give the Perry campaign your email address). 40 pages long (plus a cover page), Perry’s “jobs” plan is focused ENTIRELY on “energy” production. Ditto when it comes to “security”. In fact, Perry’s plan is SO singularly […]

Ten Ways President Obama Can Revive the Economy and Create Jobs TODAY Without Spending ONE DIME

Share

Don’t forget to vote for your favorites below! One month ago, I asked for your ideas to jumpstart the economy at little to no cost. Everyone (even President Obama now) recognizes the fact that Republicans are more interested in spending the next 14 months making sure President Obama loses HIS job than helping unemployed Americans find one […]

Conservatives will NEVER cut the Debt. EVER. So shut up.

Share

When President Clinton submitted his Budget for 2001 in February of 2000, it was his third balanced budget in a row (1998 & 1999), with the Surplus going to paying off the Debt and reimburse Social Security for all the money it loaned the Federal government. During his 2000 presidential campaign, George W Bush argued that the “$184Billion dollar […]

Are they realy THAT stupid, or just evil?

Share

I don’t like to talk about my personal life here, but my father, whom I love dearly despite his being a staunch Conservative Dittohead, said something yesterday that had me shaking my head with no acceptable response: “…President Obama wants to cut Medicare.”      Of course, it’s the GOP that wants to cut Social Security & […]

Paul-bearer. An eulogy for three ideologies.

Share

Last week was a bad week for Republicans named “Paul”. The Libertarian Dynamic Duo of Rand & Ron Paul once again showed the world why the term “Libertarian” is just a convenient label for people that want to take already bad Conservative principles and push them to their most absurd extremes. And Republican wunderkind “Paul […]

A Tale of Two State of the Union addresses: 2007 and 2011

Share

Special Edition: I prepared for this review of President Obama’s second State of the Union Address by rewatching President Bush’s 2007 State of the Union Address (the things I do for you people). I chose that particular address because it was the first following his 2006 mid-term “thumpin’” at the polls where voters swapped control […]

Maybe we should ask him for his Birth Certificate?

Share

Last week President Obama proudly announced a “compromise” he had unilaterally reached with Republicans on whether or not to extend the Bush Tax Cuts before they expire at the end of the year. The “compromise” is thus: Republicans get everything they want… a two year budget-busting extension of the Bush Tax Cuts that comes up […]

President Obama seeks to secure his 2012 defeat.

Share

President Obama announced to the White House Press Corp Tuesday morning that he is urging Democrats in Congress to cave in to the tyranny of the minority and agree to extend the Bush Tax Cuts for the Top 2% for two more years (ie: the year he leaves office) in exchange for a one-year extension […]

Mr. President, before you extend those tax cuts, you should know who’s getting them.

Share

Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell called them, “Our most effective and productive small businesses.” Congressman Mike Pense (R-IL) decried, “Raising taxes on ‘job creators’.” The Republican Party is adamant about extending the Bush Tax Cuts to “everyone”, including those making over $250,000 a year (the “Top 2%”) because… they claim… “they are the job creators.

Ten Reasons Why I’m Still Smiling after the Election.

Share

Okay, I know it may seem like there’s very little to be happy about after last Tuesday’s “shellacking” (as President Obama put it) in the polls (which wasn’t nearly as bad as some were predicting), and I too certainly fear for the next two years and all the chaos we are likely to see as […]
