Christy looks like Mr.Potatohead in that pic
Lovely to go back over all the wingnut predictions that the auto bailout was wasting money – like their original bank bailout without conditions.
That response form our esteemed leaders did wonders for our National Security. The for promotion, and for profit sectors.
I’m sure the Muslims, from not-so-radical to willing-to-die, completely understand where the Palestinians now stand, and will adjust their efforts for peace, and their enemies list, accordingly.
Stupid Democrats and AIPAC, sheesh!
Does Isreal allow us to rig their elections and choose what issues are the greatest concern in their government dealings?
His speech to American Jews is like Bush telling the world, “You’re either with us or Against Us!”. Okay, the man has some serial seriousl problems.
Yes, and my gosh, just look how much that 7.5 billion is helping to bring down the debt crisis! (grin)
Mr. Potatohead is more intellectually honest than Christie.
Here’s a little something that should be used to help de-legitimize the Regressives. Until they are either in prison or dead politically the nation is in peril.
Free loans reinvested in commodities are a big punch in the gut – when oil prices are outlandish for the public that provided the bailout funds.
Mornin’, BT, pups
The one thing Israel, AIPAC and their lackeys in Congress never wanted was an open, honest discussion about Israel/Palestine. Like it or not, they’ve got it now. Now is the time to flood the Senate with letters, calls and emails supporting the Palestinians. Fuck Netanyahu, Likud and Yisrael Beiteinu.
Ryan on Morning Joke. Loss of seat is due to demagoguing Medicare.
Heilemann to Ryan: Are you becoming a pariah?
Ryan: There are no vouchers!
Yep. But ya know, don’t get your hopes up. They might fold up like a lawn chair before long.
Thanks for watching, and reporting back. My stomach can’t take it. Yes, indeedy, has nothing to do with robbing the poor to give to the rich.
Definitely! Been reading the finance pages and see that Golden Sacs is going bullish on the oil commodities again. Woo-Hoo! Look out! Let’s speculate on how much speculating will take place before Golden starts betting against it, in secret!
If you’ve been wondering what the DOJ and Feds have been up to with John Edwards, well it looks like they are setting more precedence. It’s another Elliot Spitzer move to keep the two Americas quiet.
No, it’s hard to imagine a more vile conversation between two more vile people than between Joke and Paulie about Medicare.
I still can’t get over how the repugs can get in front of the cameras and tell the world that the US is so broke and in default that they have to take away old people’s paid in insurance!
They don’t care how they look to the US citizens or to the rest of the World that is watching! Tell me, why would anyone want to buy US T-Bills or invest with any US Bank when the country is that darned broke?
U.S. is broke, if the working theory is that the workers have no right to their wages, but corporate welfare is the function of the gov’t.
and pardon the picture, but see;
Morning Joke is a leading indicator of where the establishment wing nuts are headed.
Same reason I watch Washington Journal, the talking points are being tried out there first.
I’m the most cynical man in America. I’m not supposed to be able to get any more cynical.
But then I wake up to find the Obama DOJ is going to indict John Edwards because of conduct stemming from a freaking affair.
War criminals and bankster scum walk, hell, they’re rewarded for their actions, must look forward ya know, but covering up adultery gets you indicted.
What a fucking joke the Obama DOJ, and this country is….
And oh yeah, don’t forget the Obama DOJ let Ensign walk despite actions similar to Edwards. Still need more proof Obama is a Republican?
Matt Rothschild of The Progressive interviews Vivek Chibber of the Socialist Register. Interesting interview.
I gotcha on that one. Great Post. I added my two cents.
Thanks, it’s good to see the indictments coming along.
Off to swim in the great capitalist cesspool.
US KIA Afghanistan: 1,582

Iraki, Afghan and Pakistani casualties: estimates vary to over 1.5M

Never. Give. Up.
You see it’s not about the law, but about how the law can be used to shut people up. I don’t care how you feel about J. Edwards, but I can tell you that the repugs were scared as hell of him and did everything possible to keep him/Kerry from being elected. He was trying he best to tell the citizens of this country about the two Americas where only one small section was able to prosper.
Now, let’s go back and look what they did to Elliot Spitzer. I don’t care how you feel about him either, that’s not the point. The point is that both of these men were a threat to the MIA and Banksters. They knew what was going on and both had the ability to do something about it. Instead, we get to waste taxpayer money on Clenis style investigations.
Why don’t ya know? Obama is so post partisan that he can be called a Republicrat or a Demolican.
Yeah, the Ensign bit is what I found most amazing. The DOJ couldn’t be bothered to go after him (they did go after the cuckold, Hampton, who was truthful). And they can chase Edwards — and I have no love for HIM — and Spitzer, and let the Bushies off scott free.
I have come to think that a lot of Edwards’s populist talk was just that — talk. Useful for campaigning, but that’s about it. But then, I don’t trust ANY politician any more.
You are probably right, but he did threaten to hold those that were rigging the system to account. That did not go over well with the PTB.

There is exactly one party that controls America (and the world really) and that is the Plutocratic Party.
I take a lot of heat for saying there isn’t a lick of difference between D’s and R’s but the truth is the only real difference is the D’s will kill the middle class off slowly using small daily doses of arsenic while the R’s would be content to give them a single giant dose of cyanide.
HUH?? How in the world does this spell success?????
This doesn’t mean that Chrysler is debt free. In fact, the automaker took out additional loans last week to help pay off older debt. But the company said it could save $300 million in annual interest payments through refinancing.
Repayment of the loans will still leave U.S. taxpayers about $2 billion short, in shares that are still held by the U.S. government. Treasury and the Canadian government will both continue to hold minority stakes in the company.
The U.S. government might be able to recoup some of that money when Chrysler holds an initial public offering later this year or next.
Agree re Edwards’ “talk,” but whether Edwards was just all talk & no action politically, Edwards was *still* telling the truth. Can’t have that now, can we?
Oh sure. Ever so “Democratic,” “I only look forward, not backward,” Barack Hussein Obama will get his poodle, Eric Holder, to visciously go after John Edwards, but not John Ensign.
Yeah: got it. Loud ‘n clear.
I could give a sh*t about the affairs of both politicians, but it appears that Ensign was more likely to have broken laws than John Edwards.
But, sure, yeah: the laughingly called “Democratic” POTUS will refuse to have the DOJ go after “Republican” John Ensign (who currently sits in the Senate), but will definitely have the DOJ *waste MY tax dollars* on going after John Edwards (who holds no political office & is not likely to do so in the future).
What’s the message being sent out here? Never, ever tell the truth about the Oligarchy??????? Family values are only for the serfs, because Doug Coe’s C Street “Family” boys can do whatever the fack they like bc they’re Republicans (IOKIYAR)??????
I’m really cynical too, but I can still get plenty angry at how MY tax dollars are utterly WASTED by unethical & partisan b.s. in Dee Cee at the behest of the Oligarchs… sending out a clear message about who’s in control…
Thanks for nothing, Obama, you big fat LIAR!
Edwards, for all his faults – and they were many – spoke too close to the truth during his campaign for the PTB’s comfort. Obama has to make an example of him, just like they did Spitzer, so that no other politically ambitious member of the ruling class decides to go populist or progressive again. That might get the rubes riled up, after all. Although technically, Edwards was never really one of the PTB, as he had made his money as a attorney that sued negligent corporations. Loose cannons choose to be ambulance chasers, the reliable water carriers for the rich go into corporate law.
but dontcha know, Ensign is a real Christian because he lived in the Family house in DC, and he was really, really sorry… (i type this trying not to vomit in my mouth)
Lets go after Edwards but hands off the war criminals, great idea.
Obama is so post partisan that he can be called a Republicrat or a Demolican.
i’ve heard “republicrat” before, but “demolican” is damned creative. truthful too, because the SOB is trying has hardest to demolish any kind of middle class left after Shrub.
Spitzer I believe was set up because he knew how rotten wall street was and was going afterthem he would have also been a good presidental candidate. Edwards I don’t know pretty unforgivable for what he did to his wife. What Spitzer did to his wife wasn’t right either I might add.
