“I'm with you on that one. If these Generals really want to be heard where it "might" count, being on what we might consider the legitimate media (i.e.anything other than FOX) will not be enough. They have to go where the dead-enders are, viewing FOX. I'm not sure if it will make the difference, but preaching to us is preaching to the choir. They have to go after the mouth breathers.”

“I never thought he was anywhere near as intelligent as Buckley, nor do I think he deserves the accolades he will get in that respect. Pardon my bias, but even as a devout Demo/Prog I have loved listening to and disagreeing with Buckley for more years than I care to remember, but he was a man of principle who could give it up to a winning idea; Safire was too much a company (R) man.
That all having been said, the Republican Party conservatives are flat out of honorable men to represent them.
Rest in Peace, Bill.”

spartanmom on Sep 27, 2009 at 20:04:24

“Safire held that government interference in a woman's reproductive decisions anti-conservative. That is a more intellectually honest position than Buckley's catholic anti-choice stance.

I always enjoyed Buckley but he had his blind spots”

“This is a rather simplistic view of what the Fed is,
but for the sake of being easily understood, I believe it should suffice.

What was basically set up in 1913 was the setting up of a contractor, to whom we gave the right to control our monetary system (you know, the one in the Constitution that belonged to the people). And for this service we have paid these Bankers (by the way, that's who these subcontractors are!) handsomely, for lo these many decades. We allowed this to happen legislatively, and we can disallow it the same way.

The time couldn't be better for this to happen. But to do this is going to take Obama having huge brass ones, and additionally he needs to have no fear for his life. If we have learned nothing from the death of JFK, it should be that "you screw with the Fed at your peril".

i.e. It is not necessary to dismantle the Fed. All we need to do is take back ownership. That would instantaneously disappear all the interest we pay to the Fed on our own money. That's right!! We pay interest on our own money. All the mechanisms, basically, that exist as the Fed as we know it, can stay in place. Just boot the Bankers.

"SHED THE FED"”

sonofsamphm1c on Sep 27, 2009 at 11:22:34

“It is total BS to suggest the Federal Reserve had anything to do with the assassination of JFK.

We pay the Fed interest, and they give back all of the profitable portion of that interest. It goes into the treasury and is spent in our name by the United States congress.”

“So then using that logic, people who continue to attend Catholic Mass are complicit in the shenanigans of all those wayward Priests, am I right?

Or maybe anybody who sends their children to any organization like Boy or Girl Scouts are similarly backing any former pedophiles who may have taken advantage of young children, over the years.

In other words, it doesn't say a thing about the entertainment industry beyond what a diminutive mind would like to take from it. Perversions are where you find them. i.e. - Everywhere, and Anywhere!”

“Sorry. Some dreams die hard. On rare occasion (and they are VERY rare) I have had some good conversations with those from the other political perspective. If people like that would speak up more, along with the saner talking heads and pols, in the Rethiglican Party, there might be some small sliver of hope. But over all, you are right. It is a fanciful thought.
Hope springs eternal, I guess.”

“Since coming over to MSNBC I've been very impressed with Ratigan. He's smart, extremely articulate, and the thing I like the best about him is that he is tenacious in wanting the question he has asked, answered.
Particularly since he has a good working knowledge of the financial goings on in this country, he's in a good position to skewer these political hacks that make the rounds, on where they stand on the mess we find ourselves in. I'd much rather see him on in the morning than that mook, Scab-borough. While they're at it, they could off load Mika and replace her with someone like Nora O'Donnell.”

“How I would love to see the growth of a discerning electorate, who when confronted with a candidate who invokes his/her purity by virtue of their Christianity, are summarily kicked to the curb for gross impertinence, and self righteous hubris.

Until and unless we marginalize these fundamentalist Christians sullying our legislatures, we will be continually subjected to the most divisive and poisonous of political environments. These people cannot be satisfied unless their beliefs can rule. To them, compromise does not exist. There is nothing at all democratic about Fundamentalist Christianity.

I think a good start would be to revoke all tax exempt status for those churches that politic from the pulpit.

If you want to hear, or read, about the dangers of these people, look for Frank Schaeffer's past posts here on the Huff, or find some of his interviews on Countdown and The Rachel Maddow Show. Or better yet, pick up his book "Crazy For God", or "How I Grew Up As One Of The Elect, Helped Found The Religious Right, And Lived To Take It All (or almost all) Of It Back".”

Meg Whitman's "Vision Thing"

Commented Sep 26, 2009 at 14:50:10 in Politics

“You're right. I forgot about the tax caps. I guess I was keying in the most recent folly.
You're also right, and I agree, on the fact that California may end up being the canary in the coal mine, a dubious distinction to be sure, given the country's financial woes.
I don't follow the machinations of California with the greatest of care, but with the little I know, it seems that maybe someone like Gavin Newsom may be the person to save the day.
Professor Palermo is quite on the case, so I expect he'll keep us updated.”

Meg Whitman's "Vision Thing"

Commented Sep 26, 2009 at 13:14:48 in Politics

“You know, I grew up in the "Mickey Mouse Club" era (1950's), with my only knowledge of California coming through that association. It's presentation always had a "New World" quality about it. A middle class Nirvana, if you will. Nice middle class neighborhoods filled with kids, prosperous families, and an abundance of free time entertainments within easy driving distance on well groomed and ubiquitous highways. All the primary and high schools seemed spacious and welcoming. The colleges were all beautiful, with very modest tuition's for residents and not a whole lot more expensive for out of state residents either.

What, in the hell has happened??? It seems the the whole Idea of referendum voting, anytime someone gets a hair across their a$$, has been the boondoggle of all boondoggles. I have always thought that such a set-up might be helpful as a way of garnering opinion, but as a legislative tool it is absolutely foolish. Case in point, the situation in California as it exists.

Going from one supply-sider like "Ahnuld", to someone like Whitman, would just be a signature on a death sentence proclamation, for the State.

And I thought Florida was bad.”

“Just imagine how I feel about all this. I was born here and I've lived here all my life. As you can tell from my other posts I mad as hell! Proposition 13 was the great destroyer of our state. It gave large corporations here an unimaginable tax break and it encouraged them to come back to the well time after time after time. Now our schools are overcrowded, the lines at the DMV are ungodly long, and if you have to talk to someone at EDD, well good luck! When i first stepped foot in one of our colleges, I did so tuition free, now you have to pay a fee based on the units you're taking and it's enough to keep a goodly number of would be students away.

Don't let them do this to your state!”

StJames on Sep 26, 2009 at 14:03:09

“I passed through the 1950's as well with Mickey Mouse, and like you saw California as Nirvana. Not only were the colleges & universities beautiful, they were some of the best in the country. Gov't by referendum is 1/2 of the problem, the other 1/2 was capping property taxes. So just like the Republicans nationally, Californians cut taxes and spends. Watch California very closely. It has always led the nation in trends and it is the leading indicator for the nation's problems right now. Meg presided over the world's largest Black Market, she is well versed in theft and making it look like a legitimate business.”

They're trying to destroy this administration by making their broken clock claims. Sure, there's a chance we can be hit again, but it has less to do with anything Obama does, than it has with what those Bush warmongers DIDN'T do to control the situation.
