Thanks, BT. Good morning.
Good morning econobuzz and arriving pups.
thanks, BT, strange indeed that indignant righties aren’t calling for resignation from the diapered one, for crimes. It’s all about the pictures, and incidentally, being from New Yawrk.
Good Morning All Y’all
How’s my peeps? What is the definition of a Real Job? I guess my volunteer work isn’t, huh?
Fiscal policy is off the table and the Fed is helpless.
Good luck, Barry.
They do love to diss the N’Yawkers. Californians might be next on the list.
(PS, did everyone watch crane-station’s dumpster diving video? Another Not Real job.)
The Rs might say that you are increasing unemployment.
Shorter Bernstein (from DDay’s Roundup):
We need to reframe the debate.
Good luck with that, Jared. The debate is over and you lost.
Oh, I hadn’t thought about it that way. Just my effort to show how the current administration sucks.
Good morning everyone,
It is really sad that the Republicans are finding their anger about Weiner but when it was Vitter, Craig, Ensign, Foley and… Crickets from their side.
By volunteering, you’re crowding out private sector job creation and increasing uncertainty. /s
Uncertainty? I’m not sure. *g*
Mornin’, BT, pups
So, what are Congress and the administration gonna do when the economy really tanks due to their obstinate adherence to neoliberal theory?
Bernstein’s point is that “traditional” Democratic “Keynesian” messaging doesn’t work anymore. In other words, just calling for increased government spending in a recession doesn’t resonate with a large block of voters. (Uh, right, Jared. They’re called Republicans. And they want you and us to die.)
The message was not the problem; the actions Barry took — and didn’t take — were the problem.
Strangely, there’s so much to diss in Vitter’s home state, too. Still waiting to hear ‘he did not have sex with those women’.
Take jobs with ‘think’ tanks.
More than likely.
Or, to get re-elected, call for a lower retirement age in SS, expand Medicare to all, and pull all the troops out of Afghanistan and Iraq. For starters.
Least surprising headline, ever.
But….The President sez “we’re turnin’ the corner…”
I notice, however, that he neglected, failed or refused to mention what’s waiting for us just around that corner…
Good morning all.
Shrink the economy into prosperity.
The best we can hope for is that Barry becomes scared shitless of losing to Mittens.
Exercise their passports and tap into those unreported offshore accounts…
Good Morning All.
New Here. Got so tired of the idiotic right wing comments on sites like Yahoo, USA Today, CBS, etc.
Ready to hear from people with some sanity for a change.
Have a good day!
Ready to hear from people with some sanity for a change.
Welcome. Ya gotta be kinda thick skinned here somtimes. When the going gets tough, the tough get cynical.I supposed I should add a *g* tag.
If members of the MSM had any stones, they would fire that point off at every “interview,” if for no other reason than to watch the tap dancing. Then again, wouldn’t want to burn the bridges leading to those “Who’s Who” cocktail parties…
Really. The reichwingnuts think we’re criminally insane.
Would that be the parties where the Viagra is on the same tray as the cocktail weinies?
Now, gotta get stuff done before heat sets in. If you take a peek, Alice Rivlin outdid herself for total egocentrism in Debt hearings yesterday (post in recc;d diaries).
Thanks for the welcome everybody (so far). I’ll just sit back right now and get the feel.
Even the Balloon Juicers.
I think if we introduced some tax cuts for US corporations and gave them a tax holiday to move off-shore wealth to the US it would make everything better. Stop penalizing the rich!
(No sorry.. I can’t say any of that with a straight face..)
Just ask that noted expert cregen.
Good morning man. Got put on notice yesterday that my job would be 10 hrs a day 6 days a week for the rest of the year at least. Manufacturing may be coming around after all.
Bill Moyers is on democracynow with the longest list of hortatories that I’ve ever heard.
There are many rooms in Jane’s house. You can check out the different tabs at the top. Also, you can check out “about us” at the very top. Don’t forget to check out the myfdl diaries too. We got some great writers here, with good hearts.
So the kids and grands are coming soon and you’ll never be home. On the other hand, you’ll be able to buy lots of pizzas.
Are they left leaning hortatories, I hope?
They will be here a week from Sunday. Yes the overtime money will help a lot. We have been so lean for so long it would be nice to be able to relax just a little.
Morning Joke is going all anti-war, they even read of names of troops just killed…the hypocrisy is deafening.
How nice for you. You deserve it.
Off to swim in the great capitalist cesspool.
US KIA Afghanistan: 1,613
US KIA Irak: 4,459
Iraki, Afghan and Pakistani casualties: estimates vary to over 1.5M
US MBS 2011: 19,592 and counting
Be good to yourselves, and all other living things
No war but class war
Never. Give. Up.
Plans to do a Tahrir Square in D.C. underway to start Oct. 6.
He really is shameless, isn’t he.
Far out, man. Long hours, but…
Gotta love those cocktail weinies.
After I posted at #10, I thought maybe it would look like I was defending Weiner. No way! He was willing to speak out to the travesties of the Ryan plan and I admired him for that but what he did is just DUMB!!!
You are so right about confronting any Republican when he brings up Weiner, but we both know that will never happen.
Without a doubt. Also, good news for you! Yay!
Why doesn’t Paul Broun get a real job?
Rare footage of Broun from the year 3000.
Hey…don’t shoot the messenger.
From 2002 on this motherfucker and his friends were calling us anti-war protestors every name in the book. Fuckin’ asshole.
Dunno if it’s been covered here, but Bill Moyers for the entire hour today on DN…
You’re on it…
OilyBombadier will eventually have to raise taxes on the capitalist pigs. No other option. Where’s the money gonna come from? Oh, sure–and defense. All crumbling empires rot within. The vile elite refuse to give up war and booty. Oh right, small bidness tax cuts and pay roll tax cuts–that’s the answer.
We’re headed for a bigger crash than 2008, except this time there’s no money. No money! Liberalism is a joke. Capitalism is a joke. It can’t solve the human and ecological problems of the 21st century. OilBombadier is simply a symptom of a failed capitalist system. At least, the Soviets realized state socialism is a failure. Oligarchic capitalism is as well. Only decentralization and mutual aid will save us from wicked elite.
I say Weiner lays down a marker, his resignation for lewd photos after Judge thomas steps down for serial perjury on financial disclosure. Not only has displayed an appearance of impropriety he has engaged in such impropriety with his wife benefiting from his decisions. Which harms the country more ?
But, but my God the pictures ! What about the children ?
How can you be married to an Israeli apologist like Der Wienerschnitzel who’s in bed in with AIPAC without losing your self-respect? She must have had to do a lot of soul searching. But then again she was a baggage slave for Billary Clinton so I guess that explains something.
SWAT Teamed….. for Student Loans ….Dept. of Education breaks down Stockton man’s door
President Putty will raise taxes on the middle class and then hail it as another one of his great bipartisan victories. It’s time for him to go.
Actually, I’m ready for Barry’s big push to kick us 55 and younger folks to the curb with his plans to voucherize Medicare and privatize Soc Security. You know he loves Eddie Munster’s austerity plans. Just can’t say it. How would the Nation spin that bit of right wing skullduggery. I’m sure Van Der Hovel or John Nichols is up to the task. If they kill Medicare, I don’t think I can justify living out my “senior years” worrying about how to pay for medical care. I’d have to leave.
I really could *care less* about Weiner’s tackle being on the ‘net. Whatever… but I beyond disgusted with how Weiner handled the whole situation… like a sniveling, lying, uh, weinie…
I’m also beyond disgusted with idiotic, so-called “Democratic” (PTOUI!) politicians “distancing” themselves from Weiner. Equally sniveling & lying and teh stoopit.
So-called “Democrats” should get offa their collective lazy, self-entitled duffs and say: Who the EFF cares??? Republicans do this sh*t constantly & get away with it. Let’s STOP the madness & the puritanical nonsensical bullsh*t and get down to business.
I won’t hold my breath… Dems? Repubs? All ‘em, every last one of ‘em is full of sh*t. Cue the insane Kabuki Show bc that’s all this toe tapping, wide-stancing is with Weiner’s weiner… more distraction for the rubes…
and Clarence and his drunken Lady Macbeth skip SCRUTINY
Sure, of course – there is that. Let’s get our panties inna bunch bc of weiner’s weiner in tighty-whities… oooooooh.
But Thomas & his wife?? Eh – NO PROBLEM!! IOKIYAR!! Thomas has “divine” protection from the Elite racketeers at the top of the economic pyramid in the USA (bc Thomas does what they want). Weiner: not so much… Weiner is considered expendable in the Kabuki Show. Tossed out as “bread & circuses” for the rubes of all political persuasions. And the rubes all responded predictably…
AIPAC will keep Weenie right where he is imo
but look foward to a Silent Weener
