This is exactly what I told the DCCC the last time they called for a donation. Not another dime until they get this passed. They have the majority, just do it already. Small businesses are going broke (I'd like to hear what Lurita Doan has to say about that), and workers who are laid off have no option until they go broke too. Total insanity. Nice try at a bipartisan bill, but when dealing with crazies, it's time to just push the damn thing through.”
“Backroom deal payoff arrangements to be made. She told Andrea Mitchell she KNEW last August she wasn't running again. Why? Now the heat is on in AK, so it's time to bring the party back together since she's proved what a great distraction she can make anywhere she goes.”
I think Harry was telling him something he really didn't like hearing on the subject.
Plus the fact that Pamela Willeford, the U.S. Swiss Ambassador at the time, was also a part of the hunting party. The Swiss govt was looking for answers concerning the CIA prisons in Europe. Was she there to find out what she was authorized to disclose to them?”

“Thanks for the article. Isn't that a conflict of interest? Your last question is a good one.”
“Something about the materialism she spawns at this most 'giving' time of year. It made me actually ill to see the jingle-jangle of 'gotta have it' rearing it's ugly head.
She's putting these people in debt to the govt. Does the IRS take credit card payments? I didn't see the whole show so maybe she included funds to cover the taxes on the (donated by corporations) goods (as well as the cash) as a final gift? That wouldn't leave these people in debt. And they just couldn't get enough--new age slaves that they are--O's running a new Roman Circus.
I suppose we can blame Monty Hall and Bob Barker for it, eh? When is free (stuff) really free?”
I saw the 'over-the-top' reaction of all the Macon ladies getting free stuff. Yeah, free till the taxman shows up to get his share.
Way ta donote, Winfrey.
$59 box of 9 cupcakes kinda made me puke a little in my mouth. Oh, but there was a $4,000 fridge to keep them in along with the blood-red orange sherbets. Must be southern living, I don't get it. Make your own damn cupcakes ladies. That tv in the fridge is only keeping your apron strings tied to the oven, get it?
The irony is that 40% of Macon watches her daily. She made a point of tell us, and a point of saying they have everyone's name and address (to send the cupcakes to), so the taxman'll know exactly who got what. And at what price for that windfall tax.
Half the IRS staff will be profiling those returns next year, watch.”

BETTER GET OUT YOUR GAS MASKS BECAUSE THE OPRAH GESTOPO WILL SOON BE HERE SPEWING THEIR ANTI-OPRAH
45% not 40%, is the correct percentage of tv viewers in Macon Ga. who watch Oprah every day. That's a lot of southern whites as well as blacks who seem to have a thing for Oprah, in a so called Red State. But I'm sure that on the other hand, her ratings in so called liberal NYC are a lot lower, go figure.
“The feds will probably expect the states to step in to fill the void, like they've been doing since this admin took over.
In the meantime, the oil companies will make a killing on the middle class trying to heat their mcmansions and the wasted space of those 2-story vaulted ceilings. If they can meet their sky-rocketing mortgages, that is. Otherwise, they're out on the street too?”
