92311 McConnell has a paper company in his district that charges the Pentagon $50 for a roll of toilet paper

92311/  What a dirty unAmerican thing to do.That stinkin commie should have given them to them like real patriots do Obama sold bunker busters to Isreeeeeail Perry backtracks on his harsh statements about Social Security Flip/flopping lying coward. WASHINGTON (AP)/disaster relief fund of the Federal Emergency Management Agency is running short of money. And lawmakers were planning to leave town for a recess scheduled for next week, Friday passed a new version of a stopgap spending bill about 30 hours after rejecting a nearly identical version of the legislation, intended to keep the government open vote was 219 to 203 nyt/House bill is not an honest effort at compromise,’’ said the Senate majority leader, Harry Reid, Democrat of Nevada. “It fails to provide the relief that our fellow Americans need as they struggle to rebuild their lives in the wake of floods, wildfires and hurricane/McConnell has a paper company in his district that charges the Pentagon $50 for a roll of toilet paper. Wars are good/Like the economy, Bush Republicans put the U.S. feet into concrete, and is blocking President Obama/Bush Government pumping trillions into his Middle East wars, we would have had a depression worse than Hoover's."/Bush kept his economy going with trillions in non-conforming home mortgages, and we know how well that worked/claims she broke her water while just before making a speech in Dallas, but went through with the speech and waited 20 hours to seek Medical help, Hospital in Alaska where Palin claims Trig was born had no record of the child's birth on that day. "I was elected to damage Obama - not pass bills" in response to a reporters question on why his House hadn't passed any bills into law/Right wingers Gary Busey and Rev. Ted Haggard on 'Wife Swap'/where those brainless retard GOPigs belong...some schitty reality show. Sorta like brainless Bristol Palin on 'So You Think You Can Dance.'/Porn magnate funds $1 million quest to embarrass Perry/Now that's real investigative journalism. FOX pays people for that all the time/Perry is George Bush without the brains/there is a difference, socialist, marxist, facist, leftist, it is all the same mixed bowl of nuts to some. Just like how in one sentence some call Obama a Socialist, leftist, Communist, Marxist, Tsaoist, Facist Corporatist without the knowledge that that any one of these labels could be a contradiction to the other/when a program is too popular to attack directly, like Medicare or Social Security, they prefer to undermine it by feigning an agonized concern about the deficit. That concern, as we shall see, is largely fictitious." Inside-the-Beltway wise guy Chris Cillizza merely proves Krugman right in his Washington Post analysis of "winners and losers" in the debt ceiling impasse. He wrote that the institution of Congress was a big loser in the fracas, which is, of course, correct, but then he opined: "Lawmakers - bless their hearts - seem entirely unaware of just how bad they looked during this fight and will almost certainly spend the next few weeks (or months) congratulating themselves on their tremendous magnanimity."-last November, they have systematically attempted to make it more difficult to vote: by onerous voter ID requirements (in Wisconsin, Republicans have legislated photo IDs while simultaneously shutting Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV) offices in Democratic constituencies while at the same time lengthening the hours of operation of DMV offices in GOP constituencies); by narrowing registration periods; and by residency requirements that may disenfranchise university students-Among the GOP base, there is constant harping about somebody else, some "other," who is deliberately, assiduously and with malice aforethought subverting the Good, the True and the Beautiful: Subversives. Commies. Socialists. Ragheads. Secular humanists. Blacks. Fags. Feminazis. The list may change with the political needs of the moment, but they always seem to need a scapegoat to hate and fear.-the faux-populist wing of the party, knowing the mental compartmentalization that occurs in most low-information voters, played on the fears of that same white working class to focus their anger on scapegoats that do no damage to corporations' bottom lines: instead of raising the minimum wage, let's build a wall on the Southern border (then hire a defense contractor to incompetently manage it). Instead of predatory bankers, it's evil Muslims. Or evil gays. Or evil abortionists.-After a riot of unbridled greed such as the world has not seen since the conquistadors' looting expeditions and after an unprecedented broad and rapid transfer of wealth upward by Wall Street and its corporate satellites, where is the popular anger directed, at least as depicted in the media? At "Washington spending"- Or the popular rage is harmlessly diverted against pseudo-issues: death panels, birtherism, gay marriage, abortion, and so on-a whole catechism on the protection and further enrichment of America's plutocracy. Their caterwauling about deficit and debt is so much eyewash to con the public-Pandering to fundamentalism is a full-time vocation in the GOP-Bachmann, the darling of the fundamentalist right. What does it matter, anyway, if the country defaults? - we shall presently abide in the bosom of the Lord- I imagine a Democratic officeholder would have a harder time explaining why he named his offspring "Marx" than a GOP incumbent would in rationalizing naming his kid "Rand."- Reflections of a GOP Operative Who Left the /Marx was Wrong that the Capitalists would hang themselves on their own ROPE, I think he would have said they will drown in their own Shit, if he lived to witness modern Republicans. Every movement you grow on lies and nonsense bears only poison fruit no matter how much fertilizer you put on it. This Canker can not go on un-checked or severe pruning will needed! If American Politics was a fruit tree I'd be calling in the tree surgeon about now/The libertarian whack job who is the hero of guys like Alan? Dems and Repukes drank the libertarian inspired neoliberalism that killed America, but libertarian Kool-Aid will save us. Rand Paul is at best a moron and at worst a psychotic fascist. The main appeal of libertarian ideas is that they're simple; they're empty, tautological, axiomatic and rooted in non sequitors. They don't require any internal consistency or logic, just truthiness-he's now self-righteously and indignantly biting the hand that fed him. If the GOP is really that bad (and I think they might be), then this (very articulate and literate) ass was a key-figure in getting it there, I personally feel bad that this is the legacy that we're leaving our children. And, I think that given the government's extreme incompetence in dealing with this latest "recession" we will be forced to default on that debt sooner or later.-WIKI LEAKS has exposed the fascist rot of Western political parties and it is clear that the culprit is their embrace of EXCLUSIVE CLASS DOGMAS, CLASS IDEOLOGIES, CLASS NATIONALISM AND EMPIRe-legal action against Israelis involved in Gaza flotilla raid Announcement by Turkish Embassy to U.S. follows downgrading of country's diplomatic relations with Israel earlier Friday. gregory the sign of the chair/Israeli government and its supporters is that the Palestinians and their Arab allies gave up the right to the United Nations resolutions detailing a two state solution by rejecting that original plan and waging war against Israel for six decades-OccupyWallStreet Is More Than a Hashtag - It's Revolution in Formation- Troy Davis, who was executed Wednesday by the state of Georgia, was innocent-News With Thom Hartmann: Fox News Gives Hate Group a Platform in Republican Debate, Ruled That the Constitution Doesn't Prohibit Executing an Innocent Man in Troy Davis Case - BuzzFlash/News Corp May Face Legal Action in the US - Talking Points Memo/“How did politics in the U.S. come to be dominated by people who make a virtue out of ignorance?” In a rather unkind primatological allusion, he invoked as evidence the eight-year reign of George W. Bush, the recent vogue of Sarah Palin—and before her, Dan Quayle, apparently to round out the VP wing of “gibbering numbskulls” past and present—as well as the “screaming ignoramuses” in attendance at Republican rallies who insisted that Barack Obama was both a Muslim and a terrorist-Bill Moyers, deeply unsettled by current events, couldn’t resist a bit of uncharacteristic sarcasm: “So here we are, wallow­ing in our dysfunction. Governed—if you listen to the rabble rousers—by a black nationalist from Kenya smuggled into the United States to kill Sarah Palin’s baby.”[3] The peculiar degradation of these three fundaments of a substantive democracy—informed and judicious political discourse, intelligence, and education-within Obama’s first six months of office, when during the summer of 2009, angry constituents at town hall meetings would tout images of the president with a Hitler moustache or feature him on placards with Stalin, Mao, or Che Guevara.) Such charges performed a double duty for the Obama’s critics, casting “Barack Hussein Obama” as not only a threat to all Christians, but beyond the pale of whiteness, both as a man of African descent and as an alleged Muslim, a category that increasingly carries both religious and ethno-racial “civiliza­tional” implication.- intellect has for centuries spawned a variety of anti-intellectual commitments—the fetishization of folksiness, the cult of efficiency and practicality, jingoistic patriotism, militarized masculinity, and religious fervor- Jef­ferson’s moving preamble to the 1776 “Bill for the More General Diffusion of Knowledge,” which bears the hallmark of his views on the relationship between education and public life:Whereas . . . certain forms of government are better calculated than others to protect individuals in the free exercise of their natural rights . . . experience hath shewn, that even under the best forms, those entrusted with power have . . . per­verted it into tyranny; and it is believed that the most effectual means of prevent­ing this would be, to illuminate, as far as practicable, the minds of the people at large; And whereas it is generally true that people will be happiest whose laws are best, and are best administered, and that laws will be wisely formed, and honestly ad­ministered, in proportion as those who form and administer them are wise and honest-The number of black men in prison . . . has already equaled the number of men enslaved in 1820. . . . [And] if current trends continue, only 15 years remain before the United States incarcerates as many African-American men as were forced into chattel bondage at slavery’s peak, in 1860-we now find ourselves in an era ominously reminiscent of that biblical season of plague, only this time it is not divine power striking down the first-born children of Pharaoh’s kingdom because he refused to grant full freedom to all people, but rather the sovereign power of the state seizing every third son born black. Or perhaps we should push even further back in locat­ing an apt metaphor for the present to ancient Babylon, to the building of that colossal tower of Babel, which eventually wrought divine destruction, condemning humanity to endless confused chatter and conflict-by: Susan Searls Giroux-truthout-org/between-race-and-reason-anti-intellectualism-american-life/1314634662 Hofstadter, Richard.

Perry got a C in gym.He did get an A in world military systems and "Improv. of Learning" -- his only two As while at A&M. "A&M wasn't exactly Harvard on the Brazos River," recalled a Perry classmate in an interview with The Huffington Post. "This was not the brightest guy around. We always kind of laughed.

Walter Fauntroy has so far failed to follow up on his abbreviated tale of witnessing European special forces troops on an orgy of massacres and beheadings in Libya. that is a world-shaking story! So, why didn’t Fauntroy invite the national and international media to a press conference, once he was back in Washington?
