Good thing the Democrats control the Senate
Corporations control the Senate.
Romney to be on CBS…why do they think anyone cares? Good Morning…
I’m hoping for a real shake-up in the senate. Too many dinosaur dems.
Does Reid, the spinless one, have a primary opponent yet.
Saw my first “Romney 2021″ bumper sticker on Halloween. Now that’s scary!
That is scary…I could get him off my TV. Why would I want to hear him talk about Afghan….Thanks
You mean 2012, right?
Romney’s employee, Rush Limbaugh, has sure been sputtering inane jibberish of late.
good morning. any news on the progressives in the house of representatives who promised to vote down a health care reform bill without a “robust” public option?
Mornin’ BT, pups
The ConservaDems in Congress just can’t can resist building a case against themselves for 2010.
Starting with the polling today, the elections tomorrow and going through the mid-terms, all we are going to hear and see is the crowing from the teabag party about how the “real” Americans are taking back “their” country.
This majority congress had better get something done for the people of this country, pronto, or the next few years will be very ugly.
Hey SD enjoyed that picture you had in Caturday.
Oh, thanks. I was hoping you’d see that. Hope you didn’t waste any time on the authoritarian’s diary above mine on the list. That’s one sorry dude.
one of my favorite things about caturday is that it last more than one day! (haven’t visited the thread yet, but don’t want to ever miss one even if i’m late).
I got a surprise on this one. A lady I met about 25 years ago paid us a visit. We’re good friends and keep in touch.
GOP about to get the full teabag.
Isn’t that illegal in the Red States?
MoJo on the Bonner forgeries.
There are still many more unanswered questions about the Bonner affair. There’s the matter of the genuine letters generated by the company—did the groups or individuals that sent them know exactly what they were signing on to? And Bonner’s letters were just one part of a sweeping offensive against the climate bill orchestrated by Hawthorn on behalf of ACCCE. The documents released at today’s hearing reveal that ACCCE has paid Hawthorn nearly $3 million so far this year for outreach to community groups, with a specific focus on minorities, seniors, and veterans. (Bonner filed an invoice for $43,500 for its climate work for Hawthorn, but wasn’t paid after the forgeries came to light.) In addition to Bonner, Hawthorn also subcontracted with two other firms—Lincoln Strategies and another called Executive Communication, which did “grassroots” outreach spanning 72 congressional districts in 30 states. Which community groups lent their names to such efforts—knowingly or otherwise—remains to be revealed.
Mail in votes in NY make head to head comparisons kind of useless not mentioning that fact makes the poll suspect.
Yeah, this has lots of potential of bein’ a real clusterfuck. All the folks who’ve already voted for Dede by mail are disenfranchised? WTF?
what a lovely surprise! will check it out later today. now just trying to wake myself up after way to little sleep.
I hadn’t seen the latter. Won’t bother either. Talk about having to be right ALL the time. Mr Right, first name Always. I’ll bet he’s a lot of fun to be around.
Sounds like a Fraud case will the Feds go after it though?
Maybe he can brag about how well his hedgefund is doing now that he sold 2 mansions in a down real estate market? Maybe he can brag about buying Home Depot before the Housing Market fell? Maybe he can brag about threatening to sue his bankers because they thought he was over paying for Clear Channel?
Just what can Mitt brag about these days?
How many people Clear Channel had to fire so that they could continue to pay Rush.
Fivethirtyeight has Reid as third easiest Senate pickup the other 2 seats ahead of him are open seats given that Healthcare is the only issue on the news for months Harry and Obama should be rethinking healthcare.
I was lurking on that thread and was stunned by the guy. To be so convinced that you are right and so fucking righteous about it while being SO fucking wrong. Staggering.
How many can fit on a Big Mac with Special Sauce Lettuce Cheese?
Yeah, it must be a wonderful thing to know that you are the purest of the pure, regardless of the topic and anyone that disagrees even a little is subject to withering insults for being so obtuse as to not know what he knows.
(Yet, he was whining about how rude some other folks were to him last night)
Clear Channel today terminated 1850 jobs, amounting to 9 percent of its entire workforce. While the majority of the cuts were in sales, a number of high profile programmers and personalities were cut as well. All-Access has an ever growing list available here (login required).
Lots of Big Macs!
They need to be rethinking jobs, and not using the word “jobs” as a synonym for “profits.” Since American workers produce little of actual value except vehicles and war toys its gonna be hard for corporations which are now nothing more than importers to sell shitty “Made in China” products.
Big Macs no longer available in Iceland.
I think Sarah might get jealous.
was all over the blogosphere in iirc 2002-2003. i think he ended up getting banned, or maybe people just learned not to engage (do not feed).
Yes, of course. Not enough coffee, yet.
I do believe he’s making an attempt to disparage the values of the progressive, nay, human, community. What better place than the blog seen as a leader in the progressive community. An amazing amount of anger he’s projecting.
Jobs Healthcare the Dems need something losing a Senate Leader is something the Press won’t overlook. Rahm’s dreams of being a Mastermind disappear if he can’t keep a puppet like Harry employed.
To bad he didn’t get freepatriot or Norske or Raven, ya know one of the real troll slayers, he might have something to whine about then. Rayne did a good enough job, I thought.
No shit? Another has-been tryin’ to make a comeback. I can think of another one who hasn’t been so successful on the comeback trail as well.
The financial system troubles is hurting Corporate Food I wonder if another bailout will hurt Corporate food more? Another Bailout is coming.
He certainly has to have the last word, no matter how full of shit it is. Pathetic. My comment on last night’s thread will be the only one I make except “Do. Not. Feed. Authoritarian. Thread-hijacking. Troll.”
“Xin loi, motherfucker.”
… and his wide shoulders [ or was it his Chin ], which you can land a Boeing on ?
Morning all ? Got the Phones ready ? Good, now waiting to see who Jane wants us to harangue today. *g*
yes. that’s why i left that comment in his first thread, for folks who didn’t know the history. figured it would give enough to use the google, and sure enough rayne, i think it was, did and posted her results.
Another corporate bailout would be political suicide.
I just thouhght him an [edited by mod] for showin’ up here and posting the shit he did. Go to a blog started by a very successfull, accomplished woman and say Feminists are sexists. All I could come up with was ‘what an [edited by mod]‘.
[Comment edited by moderator. Please do not insult other commenters. Thank you.]
As difficult as it was initially, I have ignored him and hope that everyone else does the same … his thread should have a disclaimer … “not the views of the site’s owner, or sane people anywhere.”
Namaste SD !
I get to harangue my Rethug boss every day. He’s like a lost puppy now that his party has gone down the shitter. He’s actually calling me a “lefty” with affection now. *g*
most important! call pelosi to demand the kucinich amendment be put back in (opt out for states to try single payer)
The Final Hail Mary on the Kucinich Amendment by ralphbon
I will, I plan on calling her office anyways to ask how many people her Bill will cover in 2010, 2011, 2012, etc.
Ooops, shit. Let the time get away from me. My day ain’t complete without Early Morning Swim.
Off to swim in the great capitalist cesspool.
US KIA Irak: 4356
US KIA Afghanistan: 911 (not too ironic)
US MBS 2009: 37,820
Be good to yourselves, and all other living things.
True but the banks are still doing lots of funny stuff they will need a bailout.
Absolutely not one more fuckin’ dime for the banksters. Not one fuckin’ dime!!!
Is it true that the Pelosi plan will have its rates determined by the insurance industry and that ultimately is designed to be for those that would be uninsurable now due to preexisting conditions?
Thanks, I’ll ask her office that question as well. It’s unbelievable that the Dems are rushing to political suicide on HCR …
I agree but unless we crack down on the banks gamboling they will need a bailout they are running so many games now I have no idea which will break down first.
jmo, need to do more lots more reading first…. but as of now, i think we’d be lucky to get that. looks to me more like the current po is not viable.
edit to add: hopefully jane’s progressive block will hold together to block the bill. that’s why i asked if anyone has news up thread.
New post upstairs…
Seconded! and the funny thing is some GOPer willpoint this out to Jane on TV as a Gotcha question free speech does not mean however that we are responsible for some people being idiots. Villains provide us someone to struggle against.
The GOP prefers villains who can’t hit back scapegoats Immigrants today, yesterday it was Jews.
Google tells me he is the proprietor of a blog titled “feministhate” — compares feminists to Nazis. Sheds a bit of light on him. Not sure why he’s ranting here.
Good thing the corporations control the Senate.
“That was a good thing you did, Alito”
Pelosi’s Ph. #: D.C. office – (202) 225-4965; San Francisco office (415) 556-4862
Let’s get to work, people !
thanks! please help keep helping to spread the work petro! you rock!
it we’re all going to get stuck with a worse version of romneycare, we’ve got to have an out that puts us on the path to real reform.
Up until Saturday, I had no idea that the House decided not to have amendments voted on the floor … serves me right for not being here more.
I will peek in through the day and add Pelosi’s contact info. to the comments.
Couldn’t be because the Lake is known as a foul mouthed feminist dfh blog, could it?
I notice the latest entry on his “blog” is Dec 2000.
I didn’t read it. There is a musician with the same name and I had to scroll to find it. He keeps hanging around, despite not having much support for his screeds. Gotta wonder why.
