Poll: If Fiscal Cliff Negotiations Fail, Republicans Likely To Get Blame
Post Date: 2012-12-04 10:27:20 by Brian S
Republicans in Congress could shoulder most of the blame for failed fiscal cliff negotiations, according to a Washington Post/Pew Poll released Tuesday. A 53 percent majority of Americans said congressional Republicans would be more to blame if leaders failed to hammer out a deal, while just 27 percent would mostly blame President Barack Obama. While Democrats were the most likely to fault the GOP, about half of independents and 19 percent of Republicans also said they'd blame congressional Republicans. As the Post's The Fix blog notes, "Those numbers are largely unchanged from a Post- Pew survey conducted three weeks ago and suggest that for all of the back and forth in ...
GOP Rep. To Former Bush Staffer, Dan Senor: Investigate WMD Claims Before Attacking Susan Rice
Post Date: 2012-12-02 17:06:43 by Brian S
Rep. Tom Cole, a Republican from Oklahoma, says that if lawmakers are going to go after U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations Susan Rice over her initial public assessment of the September attack in Benghazi then maybe Congress should also look at how President George W. Bush pushed bad intelligence about weapons of mass destruction in Iraq. Dan Senor, who worked to spin the Iraq war for the Bush administration as the chief spokesman for the Coalition Provisional Authority (CPA), told a Sunday panel on ABC that Rice deserved to be scrutinized because she was front and center as the voice of the Obama administration after the Benghazi attack. I spoke with one senator who ...

Ohio Senate Kills Anti-Abortion ‘Heartbeat’ Bill
Post Date: 2012-11-28 11:02:53 by Brian S
Republican Ohio state Senate President Tom Niehaus plans to let an extreme anti- abortion bill falter, according to the Associated Press. Though the Ohio House passed the legislation last year, the Republican-led Ohio Senate will not vote on the bill before the end of the legislative session. Niehaus told the Associated Press he wanted the state legislature to focus on jobs and the economy. The so-called heartbeat bill would have prohibited abortion after a fetal heartbeat can be detected, which can be as early as six weeks. The bill did not provide exceptions for rape, incest or the life of the mother. The bill split Ohios pro-life community. Ohio Right to Life ...
Failed Tennessee Republican ‘Family Matters’ Congressional Candidate Arrested For Hitting Wife
Post Date: 2012-11-27 18:27:10 by Brian S
Brad Staats, a Tennessee Republican who lost a congressional election earlier this month, was arrested Sunday on a charge of domestic violence. On the campaign trail, the self-billed family matters candidate championed so-called conservative values like blocking marriage equality, denying women the right to abortions and preventing undocumented immigrants from becoming citizens. Staats lost to Rep. Jim Cooper (D-TN) by a margin of 32 percent to 65 percent, and thanked his wife in his concession speech. Last weekend, however, the 43-year-old Staats wasnt interested in saying much, telling a reporter for The Tennessean that his arrest is not what it appears to ...
Klayman: Conservatives Will 'Soon Become the New Niggers'
Post Date: 2012-11-19 11:26:02 by Brian S
Larry Klayman, founder of Judicial Watch and Freedom Watch, Klayman warns in his WorldNetDaily column that conservatives who oppose President Obama will soon become the new niggers, relegated to the back of the bus as the bus speeds away to quickly fall over the fiscal, social and moral cliff, arguing that they are treated just like African Americans were during Jim Crow. The increasingly delusional Klayman cited his Citizens Grand Jury as a way to indict Obama, Vice President Biden, Supreme Court Justices Roberts and Kagan for all their supposed crimes, making sure that America does not die and go the way of ancient Greece, Rome and other ...

Why Save the Republican Party?
Post Date: 2012-11-15 14:22:32 by Capitalist Eric
Since the election there has been much discussion of the future of the Republican party. Can it ever again win a national election, or is it doomed to permanent minority status? The most common response has been that the party must "reach out" (i.e., compete in the offer of bribes) to the exploding Hispanic population. Rather neatly and deceitfully avoiding the obvious fact that Republican sponsorship of mass immigration is the cause of their minority status. A few fringe commentators have urged that the party instead do more for its core constituency of conservative white people. But the party leadership has already repudiated this alternative in both word and deed. They have ...
Fox 19 anchor back on the air after suspension for calling Rachel Maddow an 'angry young man' on Facebook
Post Date: 2012-11-14 21:34:37 by Abcdefg
Tricia Macke, an Ohio news anchor for Fox 19, was suspended over disparaging comments she made about the MSNBC host on her personal Facebook page. A Fox news anchor was back on the air Tuesday night following a 2-day suspension for calling MSNBC host Rachel Maddow an "angry young man" on Facebook. Tricia Macke, an anchor for Ohio's Fox 19, took to her personal Facebook page last month to rant against the cable news personality, writing "Rachel Maddow is such an angry young man" on Oct. 12. She was quickly criticized by her Facebook followers, who compared the comment to making racist jokes. "I am sorry," Macke wrote to one such fan. "I should have ...
Share This Massive List Of Post-Election Firings And Layoffs With Everyone You Can
Post Date: 2012-11-14 15:19:07 by Capitalist Eric
The victory by Barack Obama on election night has resulted in a huge wave of firings and layoffs all over America. A large number of businesses seem to have suddenly shifted into panic mode. The number of layoff announcements that we have seen in the last 48 hours has been absolutely shocking. So why is this happening? Well, the truth is that the federal government is absolutely suffocating small businesses all over America with rules, regulations and taxes. If you have never tried to run a small business, then you have no idea how oppressive this system actually is for people that are trying to run small businesses successfully. It has steadily gotten worse over the years no matter who has ...
Nate Silver's Best & Worst Polls of 2012: Gallup Did TERRIBLE
Post Date: 2012-11-10 21:51:17 by Brian S
¶As Americans modes of communication change, the techniques that produce the most accurate polls seems to be changing as well. In last Tuesdays presidential election, a number of polling firms that conduct their surveys online had strong results. Some telephone polls also performed well. But others, especially those that called only landlines only or took other methodological shortcuts, performed poorly and showed a more Republican-leaning electorate than the one that actually turned out. ¶Our method of evaluating pollsters has typically involved looking at all the polls that a firm conducted over the final three weeks of the campaign, rather than its very last poll ...
The US standard railroad gauge is 4 feet, 8.5 inches. That’s an exceedingly odd number.
Post Date: 2012-11-10 10:15:43 by A K A Stone
The US standard railroad gauge (distance between the rails) is 4 feet, 8.5 inches. Thats an exceedingly odd number. Why was that gauge used? Because thats the way they built them in England, and English expatriates built the US Railroads. Why did the English build them like that? Because the first rail lines were built by the same people who built the pre-railroad tramways, and thats the gauge they used. Why did they use that gauge then? Because the people who built the tramways used the same jigs and tools that they used for building wagons, which used that wheel spacing. Okay! Why did the wagons have that particular odd wheel spacing? Well, if they ...

Today Im going to come as close to political as I ever do in this blog. Youve been warned. If its going to annoy you, you may leave now. This election has swirled around a lot of crazy things, starting with War on women a concept that might as well have been invented by a Martian with no understanding of human psychology or anatomy. I can just imagine the march on the womens towns, guns blazing
I can, unless I realize that most men love or at least like women, and that women are not an army of same-minded robots. Then there was the war on Big Bird and finally the rather ridiculous injunction to vote for revenge though what in heavens name ...

Christie ‘Still Very Satisfied’ With Obama’s Sandy Response
Post Date: 2012-11-03 19:39:19 by Brian S
At a news conference Saturday in Little Ferry, N.J., the state's Gov. Chris Christie again praised the help he has received from President Obama in the wake of Superstorm Sandy. "I'm still very satisfied with the professional relationship I have with the President," Christie said. The governor said there were some things the federal government was initially slow to respond to this week. But after telling the President about them in a phone call, he said, federal officials called a short time later to take care of the issues.
‘Fox & Friends’: Delay NBC Hurricane Telethon Because It Might Help Obama
Post Date: 2012-11-03 11:34:39 by Brian S
The hosts of Fox & Friends on Friday suggested that NBC should postpone a Hurricane Sandy telethon until after the election because making sure that the event did not benefit President Barack Obama was more important than helping storm victims. NBC announced earlier this week that Christina Aguilera, Jon Bon Jovi, Billy Joel, Bruce Springsteen and Sting would all be performing a the Friday benefit concert, Hurricane Sandy: Coming Together. Money collected during the one-hour broadcast will go to the American Red Cross Hurricane Sandy relief efforts. But because most of the announced stars have supported Obama in the past, conservative media have panned the concert as ...
Flip-Flop Mittens: Mitt Romney offers answer on his FEMA stance
Post Date: 2012-10-31 23:09:58 by Brian S
ASHINGTON There's nothing like a natural disaster to test the depth of politicians' preference for small government. And so it turns out that after superstorm Sandy battered the East Coast, Mitt Romney is far more supportive of the government agency in charge of coordinating disaster relief. Only last year, as Romney hewed to the right while battling for the GOP nomination, he seemed to downplay the federal government's role in disaster response. "Every time you have an occasion to take something from the federal government and send it back to the states, that's the right direction," Romney said at a debate last June. "And if you can go even further, and ...
Bush’s FEMA Director (‘Heckuva job Brownie’) During Katrina Criticizes Obama For Responding To Sandy Too Quickly
Post Date: 2012-10-30 17:56:33 by Brian S
Former FEMA Director Michael Brown offered criticism of President Obamas early responses to Hurricane Sandy yesterday, including a dig at the administrations response to last months attack in Libya. Yesterday, ahead of the storms pummeling of the eastern seaboard, Brown gave an interview to the local alternative paper, the Denver Westword, on how he believed the Obama administration was responding to Sandy too quickly and that Obama had spoken to the press about Sandys potential effect too early. Brown turned then to a reliable right-wing attack on the Presidents response to the attack on a U.S. diplomatic outpost in Benghazi that killed four Americans: ...
Conservative Media Attack Debate Question On Pay Equity As "Feminazi" Lie, Call Questioner "Tool"
Post Date: 2012-10-18 14:46:54 by Brian S
Conservative media figures attacked debate questioner Katherine Fenton as a "feminazi" and "tool" for asking the candidates about their views on pay inequity. Fenton asked, "In what new ways do you intend to rectify inequalities in the workplace? Specifically regarding females making only 72 percent of what their male counterparts earn." Conservative author Matthew Vadum attacked the premise of the question as a "feminazi leftist lie." Jim Geraghty of National Review wrote: "Oh bulls*** Katherine Fenton is an uncommitted voter." Michelle Malkin complained that the question was a "softball" and ...

The Gay & Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation (GLAAD) is calling for people to wear purple in support of LGBT youth after conservative columnist Ann Coulter joked that Disown Your Son Day should follow last weeks National Coming Out Day. In a post to Twitter earlier Tuesday morning, Coulter wrote, Last Thursday was national coming out day. This Monday is national disown your son day. Out of the dozens of people responding on Twitter, not one seemed to find any humor in Coulters joke. You realize that people commit suicide because of comments like this right?

Nazi Propaganda Makes a Comeback on Twitter
Post Date: 2012-10-09 10:34:32 by Brian S
The first time I met the anti-Semitic conspiracy theorist Eustace Mullins was at a conference I was covering of Holocaust deniers, neo-Nazis and paranoiacs (a redundancy, I suppose). Mullins was then in his 70s, and his general affect was that of an irate eccentric who stands outside government offices, screaming about the Rothschilds. (He actually accused me of being a part of the Rothschild gang. From your mouth to Gods ears, I said.) He seemed, in short, to be a self- marginalizing sort of fascist. Mullins, who died in 2010, was a protege of Ezra Pound, who helped him refine his hatred of Jews during their conversations together at St. Elizabeths psychiatric ...

The majority of Americans seem OK with just waddling through life, accepting the lies and misinformation blasted from the boob tube and their various iGadgets by their owners, gorging themselves to death on Twinkies and Cheetos, paying 15% interest on their $10,000 rolling credit card balance, and growing ever more dependent on the welfare/warfare state to provide and protect them from accepting personal responsibility for their lives. A minority of critical thinking people have chosen to question everything they see and hear being spewed at us by the propagandist mainstream media, the corporate fascist government, and the powerful banking cabal that has an iron grip upon our throats as ...
Union-Busting GOP Governor Scott Walker Demands Return Of Unionized NFL Referees
Post Date: 2012-09-25 11:45:52 by Brian S
The National Football Leagues decision to lock out its unionized officials at the beginning of this season has had serious consequences, as the incompetence of the replacement referees has jeopardized player safety, led to obvious mistakes, and drawn criticism from fans, the media, coaches, and players. And now, elected officials are getting their jabs in too. After the Green Bay Packers were robbed of a win by an blown call during Monday Night Football, union-busting Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker (R) a Packers fan took to Twitter this morning to demanded the return of the leagues unionized officials: Walkers sudden support of union labor is surprising, given ...
