Sarah Palin Violated Alaskan’s Trust

October 11, 2008 at 2:32 pm | Posted in American politics | 1 Comment

Great way to put it.

Sarah Palin violated the trust Alaskans placed in her as their governor in how she handled the events surrounding the firing of a state official who had refused to dismiss her ex-brother-in-law from his job as a state trooper, according to a legislative report released Friday night.

The long-awaited report into a scandal that’s become known as “Troopergate” found that Palin, the Republican vice presidential nominee, fired the state’s public safety commissioner, Walt Monegan, partly because he refused to fire Palin’s ex-brother-in-law, Mike Wooten, who was locked in a bitter custody battle with Palin’s sister, Molly McCann.

Give her even more power, and imagine the kinds of abuses she would commit. She is undeserving of any position of power and authority. If the Republicans had any sense of decency, they would do all in their power to ensure she does not appear again as a representative of their party. If the Republicans wish to enter back into the civilized world and behave properly, they will do all in their power to shun this kind of person. If the Republicans wish to have any chance of winning in the future, they would do all in their power to make McCain, Palin, Bush, and Cheney examples of what NOT to do as Republicans.

Bush’s “Ownership Society”

October 10, 2008 at 8:49 pm | Posted in American politics | 16 Comments

Uh, I don’t think this is what he had in mind. I don’t think he had in mind that the government would OWN banks…but alas, it is Bush’s policies that has brought us to this.

1. Bush was given a suprlus. He is leaving behind a collapsing economy.

2. Bush failed in Afghanistan.

3. Bush failed in Iraq.

4. Bush failed in New Orleans.

5. Bush failed with the economy.

Bush will forever be considered the worst president America has ever had. Dan Froomkin has the best title to describe George W. Bush.

Sarah Palin’s Troopergate!

Must be a Friday night. Looks like she abused her position of power to try and get Trooper Wooten fired. Typical Republican, frankly.

One nation? Indivisible, Mr. McCain? Surely you didn’t agree with that angry white man calling other Americans socialist hooligans. The vitriolic, hateful anger I see at these rallies reminds me of what I read of Nazi rallies. Nazis were mad at straw men they set up and took it all the way to violence. Will these angry white men take it to violence under an Obama administration?

These are not Americans.

The Death of Capitalism, May it Rest in Peace

October 8, 2008 at 10:45 pm | Posted in American politics | Leave a comment

Because private banks got too greedy and will basically ruin the entire economy because of their capitalistic greed, there really are not many other choices now to save the economy than to nationalize America’s banks. Bye Bye Capitalism.

Remember folks, Karl Marx did say that Communism comes AFTER Capitalism. What we saw in Russia in 1918 was not true Marxism. It should be better labeled as Leninism.

But Capitalism has lost. It lost because those who we entrusted with keeping the market safe—the bankers—failed in their duty and tried to run off with as much cash as they could before they could get caught. They knew better, but they failed, because we gave them too much power and trust. They abused that trust, and they deserve our scorn.

Some prophets have warned about days like this, but ironically, they never mentioned that those who they support—the non-governmental private players, i.e. the bankers—would be the ones to fail us, forcing our nation to nationalize banks to ensure the economy does not collapse.

If strong action would not have been taken, or is taken, then what we are talking about is the complete collapse of our economy and most economies around the world. Our economy is too strongly tied to credit. This is something we should talk about more. To safeguard our economy in the future, we have to create a way that protects the rest of the economy when banks go down, because right now, if our banks fail, the rest of the country’s economy fails. And clearly, letting banks “regulate” themselves is a recipe for utter disaster.

Capitalism has died this fall. May it rest in peace.

The Stupidity of Conservatives

October 7, 2008 at 12:17 pm | Posted in American politics | 13 Comments

they can’t even get their history right. On the one thing from history that they keep repeating over and over and over and over. You’d think they’d know it by heart.

As in many other conflicts in American history, our enemies in this war operate in many geographically distinct theaters. The essence of being a good commander in chief is appreciating the connections among these theaters — including the adversary’s willingness to open new fronts — rather than obsessing about where the last enemy attack originated.

This is exactly what President Franklin Roosevelt did in World War II when he chose to dedicate initially the bulk of American resources to the European theater, believing that destroying Hitler’s Reich was the most urgent task and that Imperial Japan could be dealt with in turn; history proved him right. Yet, under the Obama-Biden playbook, FDR blundered by getting distracted from the “real” war — in the Pacific, where America had been attacked.

Who are these people who don’t know their history?

Messrs. Rivkin and Casey are Washington, D.C., lawyers who served in the Justice Department under Presidents Reagan and George H.W. Bush and advise John McCain’s presidential campaign.

Ah, Republican lawyers.

What is the real history?

Well, they say that under an Obama plan, Roosevelt should have stuck with just the Japanese in the Pacific “where America had been attacked.” What these ill-educated lawyers seem to have forgotten about their favorite war is that Germany actually, legally, and quite openly DECLARED WAR against the United States of America. Germany made a choice to side with the Japanese and actually start a war with the United States. I wonder, why would Republican lawyers skip over this fact when trying to make a parallel to Iraq? Oh yeah, because Iraq DIDN’T declare war on the United States. In fact, we were the aggressors. You might say, we were like the Japanese during World War II. We were the first to strike. We were the ones to invade. Not the Iraqis.

Conservatives are stupid. I have to come to that conclusion because they keep making some of the stupidest comments and points to try and justify their propaganda. They are really stupid.

The difference between Ms. Palin and a Pit Bull

McCain Funded Terrorists

October 7, 2008 at 6:54 am | Posted in American politics | Leave a comment

Let’s talk about connections to terrorists, shall we? Ah, but they were our “freedom fighters.”

“Kill Him!” “Terrorist!”

October 6, 2008 at 6:46 pm | Posted in American politics | 3 Comments

Sarah Palin stokes conservatives to a point where someone in the crowd yells out “Kill him!”

And the person dishing out the roughest stuff at the moment is Sarah Palin.

“I was reading my copy of the New York Times the other day,” she said.

“Booooo!” replied the crowd.

“I knew you guys would react that way, okay,” she continued. “So I was reading the New York Times and I was really interested to read about Barack’s friends from Chicago.”

It was time to revive the allegation, made over the weekend, that Obama “pals around” with terrorists, in this case Bill Ayers, late of the Weather Underground. Many independent observers say Palin’s allegations are a stretch; Obama served on a Chicago charitable board with Ayers, now an education professor, and has condemned his past activities.

“Now it turns out, one of his earliest supporters is a man named Bill Ayers,” Palin said.

“Boooo!” said the crowd.

“And, according to the New York Times, he was a domestic terrorist and part of a group that, quote, ‘launched a campaign of bombings that would target the Pentagon and our U.S. Capitol,'” she continued.

“Boooo!” the crowd repeated.

“Kill him!” proposed one man in the audience.

Did this man mean Obama or Ayers? In either case, the McCain campaign better be careful in its attempt to portray Obama as a bad person that they don’t incite people to commit acts of murder. Hell, in his earlier speech in New Mexico, when McCain asked “Who really is Barack Obama?” the first reply from someone in the audience was “Terrorist!”

Are members of the McCain campaign really wanting this? To incite Americans enough that someone might get the bright idea to actually act and “kill” the “terrorist” Obama? Is this what our country has become?

There aren’t enough words to describe how wretched and vile the Republican brand has become. Josh Marshall adds:

So we have McCain today getting his crowd riled up asking who Barack Obama is and then apparently giving a wink and a nod when one member of the crowd screams out “terrorist.”

And later we have Sarah Palin with the same mob racket, getting members of the crowd to yell out “kill him”, though it’s not clear whether the call for murder was for Bill Ayers or Barack Obama. It didn’t seem to matter.

These are dangerous and sick people, McCain and Palin. Whatever it takes. Stop at nothing.

To all you Mormon conservatives out there, will you stand for this kind of language from your political leaders? Is this really what represents what you believe in?

John McCain and Charles Keating

October 6, 2008 at 11:51 am | Posted in American politics | 8 Comments

This is a 13 minute documentary showing the connections between John McCain and Charles Keating which led to the Keating Five, and one of the biggest scandals to rock our nation.

It’s nice to see that the Obama campaign was ready for the moment that the McCain campaign was going to start spewing out dirt on Ayers and soon Wright. They created a website called Keating Economics to show McCain’s strong connections to Keating. McCain has lost all respect, honor, and integrity to get to the White House. What a sad, pathetic man he has become (or, according to this Rolling Stone article, not much has actually changed throughout his life).

The Vile Attacks Begin

October 4, 2008 at 3:09 pm | Posted in American politics | 2 Comments

Sarah Palin says Obama palling with terrorists. Having given up their integrity and honor, all Sarah Palin and John McCain and the Republican party have left is to tear down their opponent. That’s the only reason left to get voters to vote for them rather than their opponent. What a sad and pathetic lot. Sadly many, many Americans actually agree with them.
