Stuart saves Minnesota?!

Court ruling favors Franken

** I guess they're fucked now.

Just like Patch Adams,

... neither is funny.

"Do you want to have to jump through bureaucratic hoops when you are sick? If not, why would you be in favor of government-run medical care?" --from Thomas Sowell's Random Thoughts


just felt like saying that, and with good reason.


"Let's be very clear: There are no, no tax increases this year. There are no, no tax increases next year." -Lawrence Summers, chief economic adviser

WHAT THE FUCK is he talking aboot?!

The President's budget calls for the largest increase in the death tax in U.S. history in 2010.

The announcement of this tax increase is buried in footnote 1 on page 127 of the President's budget. That note reads: "The estate tax is maintained at its 2009 parameters." This means the death tax won't fall to zero next year as scheduled under current law, but estates will be taxed instead at up to 45%, with an exemption level of $3.5 million (or $7 million for a couple).
By raising the estate tax in the name of "fairness", Mr. Obama won't merely bring back from the dead one of the most despised of all federal taxes, and not merely splinter many family-owned enterprises. He will also forfeit half the jobs he hopes to gain from his $787 billion stimulus bill.

As a candidate for President of the U. S., Norman Thomas said, in a 1944 epoch speech:

"The American people will never knowingly adopt socialism. But, under the name of 'liberalism', they will adopt every fragment of the socialist program, until one day America will be a socialist nation, without knowing how it happened."
"I no longer need to run as a Presidential Candidate for the Socialist Party. The Democratic Party has adopted our platform."

Do Iranians even watch YouTube?

What a fucking moron.
Obama is putting himself in a very dangerous box by trying to come across as benevolent.
Iran will slap him in the face, time and time again.
Obama will be seen by the rest of the world as a menace worse than Bush.

What's next?
Make Iran his friend on facebook?... myspace?

Random Thoughts on "that dead actress"

I refer to the one that couldn't ski.

  • No Oscar, but she gets a Sonny Bono Award.
  • Sorry Natasha, but Francesca still holds the title of most ridiculous snow based death this year...
  • When you realised another celebrity had died.
Who else was disappointed it wasn't somebody more famous?
  • Liam Neeson has just changed his Facebook profile to "single".
  • I bet Paul McCartney is watching the news today about Natasha Richardson, thinking... Fuck I wish I had of thought of skiing!!!!
  • I bet Nanny-Staters everywhere are over-joyed as they draft more helmet legislation.
  • On a more sobering note, did anyone else notice that an English actress injured in Canada sought medical treatment in the U.S.?
Says a lot about socialized medicine, don't it?

Tha Boy Couldn't He'p Hi'self

Leave it to "The One" to turn what's supposed to be a softball, powder puff of an interview into a disaster.
Where's Kanye West to say "Barack Obama doesn't care about retarded people."

In his defense, he was just acting within his logic.
If he's black, it's ok for him to use the "N-Word"... therefore, it's ok for him to joke about retards.

C'mon, look at his presidency thus far and tell me me he ain't retarded.

It would be funnier...

... if it weren't true.

Separating the man from The MYTH

Politico examines "The 5 biggest myths about Obama"

1. Obama is bold. Actually, he is overly cautious. It’s no coincidence the first bills he signed into law were the Lilly Ledbetter Fair Pay Act and an expansion of the State Children’s Health Insurance Program, two populist favorites. Signing these bills was not an act of courage any more than attacking lobbyists or selecting Joe Biden as a running mate. In fact, Obama’s entire agenda is cautious (sometimes to a fault, in the case of his housing and banking bailouts). Are the numbers in his proposed budget eye-popping? Yes. But eye-popping budgets are well within the Democratic mainstream now.

2. Obama is a great communicator. Cut away the soaring rhetoric in his speeches, and the resulting policy statements are often vague, lawyerly and confusing. He is not plain-spoken: He parses his language so much that a casual listener will miss important caveats. That’s in part why he uses teleprompters for routine policy statements: He chooses his words carefully, relying heavily on ill-defined terms like “deficit reduction” (which means tax increases, rather than actual “savings”) and “combat troops” (as opposed to “all troops in harm’s way”).

3. Obamaland is a team of rivals. Obama earned the label “No-Drama Obama” for a reason. His closest advisers — those who actually shape his thinking, strategy and policies — are loyal and, by all accounts, like-minded. Obviously, they regularly disagree with each other, as any group of smart individuals does. But reading the (many) profiles of Obama aides written since the election, it’s striking that there are no anecdotes of serious disputes inside Obamaland. Obama does try to bring political foes into the fold when it’s convenient, but his team is primarily made up of political friends.

4. Obama is smooth. Despite being deliberate, Obama is surprisingly gaffe-prone. Reporters on my e-mail lists last year know he consistently mispronounced, misnamed or altogether forgot where he was. (In one typical gaffe in Sioux Falls, S.D., he started his speech with an enthusiastic “Thank you, Sioux City!”) His geographic gaffes are not just at routine rallies but at major events, including the Democratic National Convention and his first address to Congress. Any politician occasionally misspeaks, but the frequency of Obama’s flubs is notable.

5. Obama has a good relationship with the media. Working with the hundreds of reporters who covered the Obama campaign last year, I was struck by how many of them would quietly complain about Obama’s borderline disdain for the press. Sometimes it is readily visible — like when he scolded a reporter for asking a question during a presidential visit to the White House briefing room. Other times it’s more passive, like long gaps between press conferences, or it’s reflected in his staff’s attitude.

the president is frightfully oblivious to the real world impact of the stock market crash on the lives of ordinary Americans

Obama does not perceive things are substantially worse or that his “strategy” is failing. He also seems to have the timing terribly off as he discusses an onslaught of taxes and regulation while the economy is staggering. And to make matters worse we have no General Petraeus to help guide us back from the brink of ruin. We have instead Tim Geithner.

Obama Just Doesn’t Get It

What does one TRILLION dollars look like?


The image is sure to amaze.

We have to 'Give him a chance', cuz he's a Democrat? F that!

The Browns put a lot of thought into their gifts for the Obamas - but the gesture did not seem to be reciprocated

The Prime Minister gave Mr Obama an ornamental pen holder made from the timbers of the Victorian anti-slave ship HMS Gannet - Barack Obama, the leader of the world's richest country, gave the Prime Minister a box set of DVD's - a gift about as exciting as a pair of socks.

I'll bet his babies' mama picked it out.
How ghetto.

Tea for Two -Thousand and Nine

Gov't Run Healthcare

- What Could Go Wrong?

to paraphrase Les Claypool,

"Ive been to hell. I spell it DMV
Anyone that's been there knows precisely what I mean
Ive stood in line and waited near an hour and fifteen
Stood there and Ive waited and choked back the urge to scream"

Chavez is being a hypocrite by allowing the national oil company to engage in capitalistic enterprise in America to pay for his socialist revolution..

... and would be better off if such ill gotten gains were removed from the 'People’s' Pool of Resources.
Perhaps it’s time we start looking out for America first, starting with the privatization of CITGO’s assets here in the US.

WTF is wrong with the freaking U.K.??!!! (I ask this rhetorically, one could go on for days commenting on their fall from grace.)
Sir Ted Kennedy?!
You can't blame the queen.She's just a senile, old figurehead of a monarch.
What the hell did Teddy ever do?
Allow me to rephrase that, What good has he ever done.At this rate, brain cancer will bring him to sainthood.
I can't stand that piece o' crap, or any of his klan.
At least his brother John was a war hero, even if his presidency was mediocre at best.
