"Morning Papers" - Its Origins

The Rooster
"Okeydoke"

I believe in a two party system no different than anyone else, but, ...

...that doesn't mean it is amateur night at the bijou.

The 'extremist' environment we find ourselves is set in somewhat of a hysteria, along with a disappointment in the Democrats that they haven't delivered 'the perfect world,' yet.

To invest a valuable vote in a party that is completely unproven at the local and state levels of government is absolutely and obviously irresponsible. 

Vote, but, PLEASE vote wisely.

GOOD NIGHT, MOON.

If a supporter turns up mysteriously at the end of the race, rather than being involved from the beginning they sincerely should not be trusted without knowing what they are all about, besides LIES.

...The flier has Binsky (click title to entry - thank you) and other Libertarians suspecting that Democrats are behind the mail piece as a ploy to drive conservatives away from voting for the Republican in the race, Matt Carle. Democrats, however, say they don't know anything about it....


If lies are the only way to defeat a candidate, it can't be worth it for anyone in the electorate and it automatically raises concerns of the integrity of those that have tried to cast doubt by lying.  I guess the name 'Tea Party' is like a 'code' for The Pied Piper, when nothing but fantasy will do.

Carly Fiorina meeting with Tea Partiers in Marin -- no press allowed

I can understand why Ms. Fiorina would not want the press in the room.  But, come to think about it, Tea Party Candidates don't ever want the press in the room.

What else is there to say? 

EXCEPT...

"Wall Street CEO seeks extremist party to back their candidacy."

Who is going to be on YOUR staff?

Scary.

This is where it really gets bizarre.

According to the "Alaskan Dispatch" the guy got really weird about a political poll.

Besides the fact he was suspended for three days, he used three computers and actually thought it would make a difference.  Now I appreciate him calling himself an 'ass,' but, that really doesn't excuse some really bizarre thinking and behavior.

Joe needs to leave Alaska, alright, but, not for DC.  He needs to find a place in the country where there is actual opportunity for his ability as an attorney rather than living in a 'small pond' and believing three computers are going to change the outcome of a poll for his ambitions. 

Buoy.  The Tea Party certainly got an interesting one, huh?

Now, do I believe he should be elected?  No.  I believe the citizens of Alaska really need to take an honest look at the Democratic candidate for Alaskan US Senate and realize he never took them for granted in any of his race.

Joe Miller's paranoid attempt to overthrow the Alaska Republican Party

| Oct 31, 2010

[...In March 2008, (click here) Miller was placed on administrative leave for 15 days and suspended without pay for three days after getting caught using co-workers' computers in an effort to influence Republican Party politics. He was also required to undergo mandatory counselling.
Miller has long been a political crony of former Gov. Sarah Palin, and in March 2008 was assisting in her effort to get Randy Ruedrich booted as the Alaska Republican Party's chairman -- a political takeover that ultimately failed.
Palin and Ruedrich had been at odds before, famously in 2003 when Palin, then an Alaska Oil and Gas Conservation Commission commissioner, discovered that Ruedrich, also a commission member while state GOP chair, was conducting Republican business out of his state office. She exposed Ruedrich's ethical lapses -- forcing him to resign and resulting in a $12,000 state ethics fine -- and then used her reputation as a corruption fighter to bootstrap her way into the governor's office....]


...Miller's time as a part-time borough attorney (click title to entry - thank you) allude to some of the Gulf War veteran's fears, including his belief that someone might hack into the borough's computer system.
It was around this same time -- March 2008 -- that Miller was caught using three of his co-workers' computers to pad a political poll on his personal website. After the incident, Miller, who at first lied about the computer usage, was placed on leave for about two weeks, followed by a three-day suspension without pay and six months probation.
For co-workers who had just days earlier heard Miller going on about personal threats and computer schemes, the timing of Miller's misuse of their computers was unsettling, spawning one more twist in a situation that seemed to grow stranger by the day....

Sharon Angle is a Tea Party candidate. Why? Because she has no clue either !

Sharron Angle revises history, denies saying what she actually said (click title to entry - thank you)

----Karl asked Angle: “When you say if things don’t turn out the right way in this election, people may seek Second Amendment remedies. What did you mean by that?”


Angle replied, “No, I don’t think that was exactly the way I said it.”...

----On domestic enemies, she told Karl she was speaking of enemies “of the free market system.”
Oh, a plutocrat.

She is KNOWN to have the most bizarre voting record of any Nevada legislator in history.  She never votes with the majority.  Her constituency is served by EVERYONE ELSE'S service in government, NOT her's.

THAT is what voting in the minority provides.  NOTHING. 

Max Pappus, another profiteer, extremist and fear monger wants to end the federal program, "Market Access Program."

He claims it is a federal program that costs $1 billion US that subsidies foreign countries.

The Market Access Program (MAP), (click title to entry - thank you) formerly the Market Promotion Program, uses funds from the U.S. Department of Agriculture's (USDA) Commodity Credit Corporation (CCC) to help U.S. producers, exporters, private companies, and other trade organizations finance promotional activities for U.S. agricultural products. The MAP encourages the development, maintenance, and expansion of commercial export markets for agricultural commodities. Activities financed include consumer promotions, market research, technical assistance, and trade servicing.

Now, I don't know what Mr. Pappas understands about the 'idea' that the USA feeds the world, but, it comes darn close.  I also don't understand what Mr. Pappas understands about marketing, but, he needs to speak to the California Governor, Ahnold Schwarzenegger about his trip to Japan and Asia to promote the sale of California Produce. 

IT DOESN'T SELL ITSELF by pure reputation alone.  USA agricultural commodities have to be marketed just like any other product and believe me the farmer isn't do that.  The farmer takes their commodities to a market and 'gets a check.'  What happens from there is up to the 'commodity handlers' to decide. 

I don't believe I have to say this, but, California is about the sixth largest economy IN THE WORLD.  I think it is important there is a program within the INFRASTRUCTURE somewhere that actually takes that seriously.

Simple solutions for simple people. Profiteers, extremists and fear mongers.


Mr. Denninger of the Tea Party states he wants to cut a SSI by 50% simply because we don't have enough money to pay the rates we are now and cutting it to zero would be stealing.

Mr. Denninger, along with most of the extremist views of the Tea Party Republicans, have not taken into account what would occur to the USA economy and the 'aged populous' in the USA, including the very aged in nursing homes if SSI were cut by 50%.

People plan their retirements and include those monies in that planning.  Beside trashing every retirement dream in the USA, it would cut 50% of circulating monies out of the 'economy of the aged' in the USA.  YES, SSI is part of the economy of the USA.  Yet, these folks believe by simply cutting the amounts people receive it will be all okay.

I wonder.  Do they believe in the Easter Bunny and Santa Clause, too?

He believes SSI is a subsidy to citizens and that any subsidy is socialism. 

Really?

Has he looked into the subsides paid to the petroleum industry?

The woman is Amy Kremer, the leader of The Tea Party Express. Profiteer, overt bigot, extremiost and fear monger.

Tea Party Express organizer Mark Williams (L) and Amy Kremer look at a computer before the start of a news conference at the National Press Club on April 15, 2010 in Washington, DC. The news conference was held to unveil their 2010 election targets for the upcoming House and Senate races.

The picture on the computer is a racist picture.  It just is.


However, she actively admits, " We need to stop government spending, but,  I am not an expert on the US budget, but we need to stop spending."

Oh.

"I is not opposed to A single government program exactly, but, we need to stop spending." 

She does however believe the Constitution states separation of church and state


And she states we need to stop the revolving door between Washington, DC and Wall Street.

The 'revolving door' that I am aware of is the elected legislator that becomes a lobbyist. 

She believes all this is necessary, but, in her own words, basically, she has no clue as to how to do any of it.  But, she and Palin will travel around the country ranting rhetorical slogans so that everyone believes there are actual policies they can pull out of a hat and simply stop all this.

NOT. 

Juson Phillips, profiteer, extremist and fear monger. " Tea Party Nation head wants Muslim-free Congress." (click title to entry - thank you)

Should Congress be a Muslim-free zone -- despite the U.S. Constitution's ban on religious tests for public office? According to Salon, which links back to earlier sources, Tea Party Nation leader and founder Judson Phillips, a Tennessee attorney, thinks so....

Phillips writes: (click title to entry - thank you)
There are a lot of liberals who need to be retired this year, but there are few I can think of more deserving than Keith Ellison. Ellison is one of the most radical members of congress. He has a ZERO rating from the American Conservative Union. He is the only Muslim member of congress. ...
Salon's Justin Elliott writes:
Phillips has not withdrawn the post or apologized. It's hard to imagine that this would not have made more of a splash if Phillips had targeted, say, a Jewish member of Congress for being Jewish or a Mormon member for being Mormon.


Robert Wright makes a similar point while looking into the fallout over ex-NPR, now-Fox newsman Juan Williams' nervous-about-Muslim-garb comment last week. Wright, a senior fellow at the New America Foundation, blogged for The New York Times:


Suppose Williams had said something hurtful to gay people instead of to Muslims. Suppose he had said gay men give him the creeps because he fears they'll make sexual advances. NPR might well have fired him, but would Fox News have chosen that moment to give him a $2-million pat on the back?
I don't think so. Playing the homophobia card is costlier than playing the Islamophobia card....


Additonally, Mr. Phillips has stated he and his organization wants to stop the socialism in the USA and want to advance freedom. 

What does he think he is practicing when he is speaking out freely in any campaign?  Anything other than democarcy? 

We want to fundamentally change government. 

Fundamentally changing government is a broad topic.  What he really means is that he wants to replace government with his plutocratic values.

Kill SSD filled with waste fraud and abuse.

SSD?  If there are individuals that are fraudulently on SSD, then he needs to come forward.  Many people on SSD are there because their lives were destroyed by the plutocratic ideals that OSHA is simply government waste.

Stop Departement of Education to subcabinet level - cut budget to zero - as a program it is a disaster  Education to be run by the state and local level.

Do these people ever stop to think about what they are saying or simply spout rhetoric to MAINTAIN the hate and anger? 

When federal funds are used for education it brings a level playing field to impoverished states.  That means every child in the nation as the same chance as every other child.  When Phillips wants to decentralize educational funding and guidelines, he is saying let's make religion a priority if we want to and eventually remove the 'public' in Public Schools if we want to as well.

 Everyone knows when federal autorities aren't policing the States there is CORRUPTION.  When the feds and States are policing the locals there is CORRUPTION.  The federal government has to be actively involved in local and state efforts to educate Americans because it requires vigilance the state and local authorities don't practice.  Mr. Phillips naively believes everyone is capable of policing their local authorities on everything.  It doesn't work that way.  How many people in any town actually attend every council and every board meeting?  FEW. 

The Tea Party Nations states there should be a separation of church and state, then why are they excluding Muslims from serving?

Who OWNS you,

But Rubio says American exceptionalism is threatened by Democratic big-government policies, so the Nov. 2 election isn’t merely about selecting a junior Senator, it’s “a referendum on our identity.”

AND

Rubio has stated the problems with the GOP are self inflicted.

These people are not fit to lead and unable to follow. Mike Lee states he finds it may be necessary to shut down the government.

Hasn't Mr. Lee ever heard of a house of cards?  That is why his campaign rhetoric will bring to the people of the USA if he actually believes he can shut down the federal government.  What is astounishing is that people actually buy this mess as if it can and should happen.

The electorate can't believe that is sincerely an option.  I mean for real here.  And if that is the case then what do they believe they are doing except providing AN EXCUSE for the naive and vulnerable of society to vote for a sham. 

TRUSTING the Republicans with any responsibility for the country AGAIN is regressive and completely dysfunctional. Here is the best Mr. Boner could do.

John Boehner and Tiger Woods Golfing Together  (click here)

July 1, 2009

Mr. Boner is NOT the President.  The GOP candidate wasn't elected and neither was the Vice Presidential Candidate.

He stated and I quote, "I he will not work with the president unless the president is working my way."


First, President Obama should announce he will not carry out his plan to impose job-killing tax hikes on families and small businesses.


Second, President Obama should announce that he will veto any job-killing bills sent to his desk by a lame-duck Congress – including ‘card check,’ a national energy tax, and any other tax increases on families and small businesses.

Third, President Obama should call on Democratic Leaders in Congress to stop obstructing Republicans’ attempts to repeal the new health care law’s job-killing ‘1099 mandate.’


Fourth, President Obama should submit to Congress for its immediate consideration an aggressive spending reduction package.


Who runs this country? The legislators elected in ? Free Elections ? or the GOP and Murdoch's media circus?

Hannity states Lindsay Graham was noted to say, the legislature needs to work with the president. 

According to Hannity, Graham needs to get his it right in that he will not work with the president.  The radio jockey then  had a hissy fit and carried on as if he was making government policy and not the congress or president.

What kind of power are the people of the USA providing to this media service by being their puppets?


...Graham was censured by the Aiken County Republican Party (click title to entry - thank you) and several other South Carolina counties in September for straying from the party by supporting amnesty for illegal aliens and nominations for Supreme Court justices.
The measure also barred Graham from invitations to any local events.
On Tuesday, Graham said he will fight the president when he's wrong, but he will also cross party lines to "help him do the things that need to be done to make us all safe."...
It's Halloween Night.

"Try to Remember" by Harvey Schmidt and Tom Jones

Try to remember the kind of September
When life was slow and oh, so mellow.
Try to remember the kind of September
When grass was green and grain was yellow.
Try to remember the kind of September
When you were a tender and callow fellow.
Try to remember, and if you remember,
Then follow.

Follow, follow, follow, follow, follow,
Follow, follow, follow, follow.

Try to remember when life was so tender
That no one wept except the willow.
Try to remember when life was so tender
That dreams were kept beside your pillow.
Try to remember when life was so tender
That love was an ember about to billow.
Try to remember, and if you remember,
Then follow.

Follow, follow, follow, follow, follow,
Follow, follow, follow, follow.

Follow, follow, follow, follow, follow,
Follow, follow, follow, follow.

Follow, follow, follow, follow, follow,
Follow, follow, follow, follow.

Deep in December, it's nice to remember,
Although you know the snow will follow.
Deep in December, it's nice to remember,
Without a hurt the heart is hollow.
Deep in December, it's nice to remember,
The fire of September that made us mellow.
Deep in December, our hearts should remember
And follow.
