Anthony Weiner Tweet-Taunts Clarence Thomas About Financial Records News Dump

Anthony Weiner Tweet-Taunts Clarence Thomas About Financial Records News Dump

Commented May 27, 2011 at 23:00:42 in Politics

“Being Solicitor General is not a conflict of interest. Hearing Supreme Court cases she had a vested interest in as Solicitor General is a potential conflict of interest. That is why she chooses to recuse herself from cases she presented as solicitor general. People who can't think for themselves and only hear half-truths from Fox News simply should not vote. They are the reason we went to war in Iraq. They are the reason Bush was elected for the first time in 2004. They are the reason the media gave any attention to last weekend's "rapture." Man, it must get annoying not knowing anything yet having an opinion on everything”

“I suggest you research what constitutes a conflict of interest. According to the rules, Thomas has done nothing requiring recusal. Weiner knows the rules meaning he is resorting to tactics unbecoming of a congressman.”

“Mr. Marcus,
I wouldn't brag too hard about being a "Job Creator" when you steamroll into every local market, put Ma and Pa hardware stores out of business, destroy locally owned building material and lumber yards with your unfair tax advantages, fill your shelves with poorly made Chinese junk, and replace good-paying middle class jobs with a part-time, just over minimum wage workforce who knows almost nothing about construction. Then, the second a store stops growing at an unsustainable rate, you pull the plug on it, throw everyone on the street, and leave behind a big, ugly orange building that essentially can't be resused--in addition to all the empty locally owned businesses you destroyed. Make no mistake about it, you are a "Job Depleter" not a "Job Creator."”

“. . . and then they will take over our oceans and our moon and our other planets. Not to nit-pick, but I think our literally dozens of other allies in the Mid East, Northern Africa, and the Arabian Peninsula might feel a little insulted when you claim Israel is our only ally.

Emotional and simple-minded people need to stop controlling foreign policy. Did we learn nothing from the Cold War? How many died in Vietnam out of fear and hate?

Please read a book or two before weighing in on US-Middle East policy”

White House Correspondents Dinner: Obama Takes On Trump, Birthers, The Media, And More (VIDEO)

“Rabble rabble rabble, outrage outrage outrage, distraction distraction distraction. Come on look over here! No . . . don't look at the fact that the Tea Party/Conservatives/Republicans/GOP/Whatever they want to be called now that they have worn out the welcome of all those other labels/ has been wrong on literally every single economic, social, and moral issue we've debated as a country in the last 50 years.

Seriously, stop looking there and start looking at the distraction I'm creating now. I'm banging pots and pans painted with the Tea Party logo while wearing an American flag shirt and 18th Century knickerbockers as my overweight, middle-aged, pasty-white pal plays a wooden flute. Look at us! We're patriots!”

Donald Trump Booed At White House Correspondents' Dinner

Commented Apr 30, 2011 at 22:55:28 in Politics

“Should the media have stayed silent on Hit--- ler? Should Ed Murrow have stayed silent on McCarthy? Should Walter Cronkite have stayed silent on Vietnam?

Sometimes the news IS disseminating truth from fiction in order to objectively inform us. Trump is a liar, a fake, and a lying fake of a liar who fakes and lies while fakingly lying. The media is doing its job when they take an objective stance against the vicious and easily debunked venom he spews out. They should have done it earlier just as they should have challenged the Bush Whitehouse on Iraq earlier and the Obama Whitehouse on financial "reform."”

“My prediction: the right-wing will stress that this nice white Christianis a "lone wolf" and mentally unstable--just like they did with milky-white Jared Loughner and practically translucent Ar_yan_nation Spokane bomber-guy. Meanwhile, even though Muslims outnumber Christians and we have greater incidence of Christian domestic terrorism than all other religious combined, the next time a Muslim man steals a donut, I'm sure the GOP will demand a taxpayer-funded inquisition on why all Muslims enabled said theft.”

“Uhhh . . . nearly 200k in salary, free health benefits, $1 million in staff allowance, $1 million in district office rent and travel, free meals at the Capital, free dental, free retirement pension, free legal, etc etc. The benefit package for a House member totals nearly $3 million a year. Forgive me if I don't have much sympathy for them being unwilling to chip in $600 a month to split a place with some fellow House members.

That said, I don't really care if they choose to sleep in their offices. Go for it--it's a great way to be more efficient.”

“O'Reilly's posture throughout the interview basically says all you need to know about him and his network. He practically pulled a chair up, sat in it backwards, leaned with two arms on the backrest, and did his best Barbarino impression. I'd like to remind Bill that he's interviewing the leader of the free world and not pledging a frat.”

“Agreed totally. I half expected O'Reilly to call him Barry before the interview was over.”
