Is Zucotti Park a Big Enough Distraction?

I’m sure the failure of the administration’s creepy version of a Tea Party and it’s subsequent deletion is an interesting news story. I also know there are other real crimes like graft to administration donors and violations of civil rights by executive order. Still, one should ask these questions.

  • Why has Hillbuzz, a site mostly confined to conservative circles, seen DDOS attacks since the owner used the Herman Cain standard of evidence to publicize stories about Obama’s sexual exploits?
  • Why did Reggie Love suddenly leave his White House “body man” duties?
  • Why was Hillbuzz’s scheduled guest tonight, Larry Sinclair, declared dead on Free Republic yesterday when he’s very much alive?
  • Why is former White House celebrity staffer Kal Penn suddenly involved in a love story with one of the most attractive actresses on television?

Kevin Dujan of Hillbuzz has been Ground Zero for information about Obama’s past in Chicago. As an organizer for Hillary, he knew some of the things Obama did at a place called “Man’s Country.” In fact, he thinks the Vera Baker non-story was a fabrication to make Obama seem manly when questions started coming up in 2008.

I wouldn’t put anything past this guy. Besides the Politico standard of rumors being fact, I think it is valuable information to learn about the down low history of a man who has used sex secrets (and sexism) to take down his rivals.

    Consider this my Tinfoil Hat Tuesday entry.

  2. Jeffhas says:

    I was just going to say – Tinfoil Tuesday for sure!… but I’m in.

  3. DandyTiger says:

    Love the tinfoil stories. I like it. Frankly, it’s better than other blogs and faux celebrities saying DHS were involved with the OWS take down. Pffft, it was the aliens. Duh.

  4. timothy2010 says:

    Sorry but obama is one of you people. I took a vote and we say uh-uh. No thanks.

      But they’re right and we’re wrong. How can this be? Clearly the voters are racist DHS thugs.

      • Lulu says:

        We will see if they are able to read polls tomorrow or if they will continue in upside down land. If the polling is as bad as I think it is, all of the politicians including Obama who had expressed support had to make it go away. The usefulness had expired and the shameful use of people just like they used them in 2008 was just more exploitation. You would think at some point they would get tired of being treated like rented mules.

    • elliesmom says:

      I had some business that took me to Cambridge today so I took a stroll past the Hahvard Yahrd. Sorry, I was really there, but I didn’t stop to take pictures .(Normally I would have used it as a shortcut and crossed through it, but you can’t get in w/o a Harvard ID because of the protesters) It looked like an advertisement for REI or Eastern Mountain Sports, but not much activity. I would guess that most everyone had gone to class. Now that the Occupy kids are in her space, I wonder how Elizabeth Warren is going to interact with them. Will she continue to claim ownership of the ideas behind the protests if their popularity plummets? Scott Brown will score big points with his and Gillibrand’s bill to make insider trading by congresscritters illegal. Warren is going to need something for a counterpunch, and she can only make campaign promises while Brown can actually push for legislation. I think it’s going to be an interesting race.

    I have walked by and chatted with a number of the Occupy Pittsburgh crowd. Most were pretty level headed albeit in my opinion misguided.. Seemed most had good intentions, granted I was never there during the times people would be coming or leaving work. So don’t know if they were offensive at rush hour. Place is well kept. No drums but it was still a blight. Don’t think you win over the 50k and under crowd by camping and hanging out when they have to walk by you on their way to work and you’re camping. At first maybe a little empathy but as it drew on it became annoyance. Pittsburgh is a public transport challenged city and when you drag your ass out of bed and wait for a bus and then spend another half hour after work waiting for a bus on which you have to stand to get home because you have obligations. maybe OWS has some valid points(big maybe) but if you have a kid you don’t drop out and camp. You do what you have to do. I catch my bus very near the encampment and I listened to the change in attitude. All the donations of food and other things also think backfired. Pittsburgh is a confluence(may already know this) of three rivers and as a result the downtown is on the small side. Became a bit of a bus stop joke to stop by the occupy site and grab lunch and/or breakfast.

    • elliesmom says:

      I was invited to a “lunchtime poetry reading” at OccupyBoston on one of my trips to the city. But I had places to go and people to see. As did most of the other people passing through Dewey Square. A lady ahead of me responded to the invitation with “How quaint.”

      • timothy2010 says:

        Playing devils advocate i asked an Iraqi vet who was an amputee if he felt that it was fair that billions were spent on providing health care, public education and more on illegal immigrants but he has to worry about sending his kids to college. He told me that was what he was protesting his kids deserved what he fought for. Told him OWS does not have his back. Nice guy. Gave up a leg for his country. Can’t afford much but an illegal person will spend the same amount for school as his kid.and get more aid as a minority.
        Know I sound extreme but we do spend more money on the children of illegals than we do on college educations of our vets children.

        • DandyTiger says:

          The lack of care and assistance to our vets is shameful. Both parties shit all over them.

        • elliesmom says:

          I don’t know how old you are, but back “in my day”, a college dorm consisted of small rooms with two or three students in each, a community bathroom down the hall shared by 25 to 30 students, and a “lounge area” that 100 or so students shared. My niece is currently enrolled in a state college. She has a much larger room, which she shares with one other student. They have a private bath, a kitchen they share with four other girls, and a living room with a large screen TV also just for the six of them. The ground level of the dorm has a “student center” with pool tables, more TVS, video game consoles, etc. When I suggested that she was “living in luxury”, she told me her dorm “was a dump” compared to some of the other schools she visited. Maybe “student expectations” should be part of the discussion of college costs as well.

    here goes Seattle cleaning out the owies

    UPDATE: #OccupySeattle protesters are stopped in the middle of the street at 5th and Pine where they were met by bicycle cops.

  13. timothy2010 says:

    OWS taught me one thing– I wish I knew how to drive. I didn’t learn in High School because I knew I was gay and well couldn’t go on a date if I couldn’t drive. Went away to college at seventeen and lived in big cities where a car is more of a hindrance but now back in a big small city I’d love to learn, but afraid. Not afraid of the act of driving but afraid that I daydream a lot and worried I’d drift off into a revery and hurt someone else.

    • Lulu says:

      Do you have a friend to let you try it out? You need to be comfortable before you take lessons. I taught my kids how to drive starting at about age 10 (tall enough to reach gas and brakes) driving early Sunday mornings in big empty parking lots. They loved it and are all good drivers. I learned at age 10 or so driving my grandmothers Lincoln in the front yard of her house (really big yard with a duck pond). And I really doubt you would stop paying attention while driving.

      • timothy2010 says:

        Bottem line is a I am chicken shit. Who learns to drive at 44?

        • Lola-at-Large says:

          Any 44 year old who wants to. You can do it!

        • DandyTiger says:

          Actually lots of people learn late. Esp. if they live in cities. No biggie.

        • Lulu says:

          If children can learn you can too. By being afraid you show common sense and respect for the big machinery that you would be operating. You would be a good driver because of it. My dad taught his aunt how to drive when her husband died and she was at least 55 years of age at the time. She had never had the opportunity to learn, her husband wanted her dependent on him, and she learned and bought a Caddy. She was 4’11” and sat on a pillow.

        • HELENK says:

          I was 38 years old when I learned to drive.
          It gives you freedom.
          As Dandy says take lessons, practice with a friend and you will be able to drive.
          My friend had me driving a 76 caddy, a real boat.
          I now drive the California freeways, I never would have believed that could happen.
          It is worth the time and trouble to learn

        • myiq2xu says:

          Driving on California freeways is easier if you are left handed.

          You can shift with your right and shoot with your left.

        • trist says:

          Go for it Timothy! I just got my license 3 weeks ago. And I’m turning the big…gulp 4-0 in Jan. Wanted to drive myself and family to Walt Disney World ( my first trip there) to celebrate….well my B-day and the fact that this past year I finally figured this weight-loss thing out and dropped 165lbs. still about 40 to go, but I’ll get there. That’s a large part of the reason I haven’t driven until now. One doesn’t really want to go places when you’re pushing 340 pounds!
          We did end up deciding to go by bus, to save a bit of money and to not be overly tired once we get there, but we will be renting a car once there, and now I’ll be able to dive. Anyway the point is….

          It’s NEVER TOO LATE! ^_^

          trist
          Again i am so inspired
          Before you settle on the bus you may want to look at whatever they call that amtrak train that takes cars. 6 of us went a year and a half ago and couldn’t fly because of one and it ended up being cheaper than flying and renting a car. Triple A discount total 4 days 5 nights(not enough time so if never been spend what you can) less than 3000 for the package. Of course expect to spend while there. Called amtrak auto train. Forgive me for being to tired to retype

        • votermom says:

          trist – congrats! that is awesome.
          Btw, Disney is one of the few paces that you actually don’t need a car (though it is nice to have one) because the bus system is so efficient.

        • trist says:

          Thank you votermom!
          We’re actually staying off property and plan to see some of the other sites so we definitely needed a way to get around town, so we were going to have to rent a car anyway. But I think it’ll all work out for the best this way. I was able to get a 3 bedroom condo for less than just 2 of the budget rooms at Disney and it’s basically right outside the Disney area, plus with it’s own kitchen I’ll be able to stick to my regular eating habits….for the most part. I mean it IS still a vacation, so I do plan on enjoying myself. I’m just not gonna go nuts with it! LOL!

        • votermom says:

          That sounds so good I wish I could come with! πŸ™‚

          I am so envious right now – please don’t tell me that you will check out Harry Potter World as well or I might just dissolve into a puddle of green goo.

        • trist says:

          Okay I won’t tell you! ^_^

          Yup, I’m a huge Harry Potter fan! I used to manage an online site for adult readers who were Severus Snape fans…more like completely in love with Severus Snape! ^_^
          Anyway, yeah, visiting there is one of the places I’m most excited about.
          Well until you can make the journey yourself, how about I drink a butterbeer in your honor? ^_^

        • Karma says:

          Congrats Trist! What a great way to celebrate!

          And I admire your planning skills Disney World in the winter….no humidity!

    • DandyTiger says:

      Driving is hellafun. Find a friend to let you practice in parking lots and then on rural roads, and slowly work your way up. Get your learners permit so you can legally drive with a friend. Slowly but surely get comfortable. If you need it, take a driving safety course. Those are really great and a good idea for any of us.

      • myiq2xu says:

        A few drinks to relax you helps too.

        That’s how Grandpa taught me.

          Are you near Montary? I was checking out their occupy site and looks like a great place to spend January? I prefer Jim Beam/Jim Beam/Pinot Grigio/Jim Beam/ Yuengling Lager/Jim Beam or Jim Beam as study guides. Perhaps you could teach me to drive.
          Joke of course. I no like Cali. There once in the late eighties and felt like I was on another planet.

      FYI
      I just looked up one week for 6 people without any discounts and not using AAA going round trip from Virginia to Disney it was about 1900. Does not include hotels or food but all kinds of discounts available. Don’t know from where you are departing but it maybe worth a look.TripleA disney and Amtrak have graet deals.

      • trist says:

        Thanks for the info. I have been checking on various ways to get there via train, car rental bus….flying was out, but finally decided that the bus was the best choice. And I actually just got the bus tickets yesterday. So I’m committed to that now. I have been researching and planning and revising and trying to get ready for this trip for nearly a year now. It’s been work but fun. I know I get on people’s nerves talking about it so much, but I’m so excited about it, I can’t wait! ^_^

        • votermom says:

          Planning the trip is half the fun. Have you been to any of the unofficial planning sites like DISboards, wdwinfo, nousesavers, etc?

        • trist says:

          votermom, I think I’ve been to ALL the sites! LOL! My Mom teases me about it. I have the itinerary so well planned out that she says she’s surprised I haven’t scheduled in the bathroom breaks too. I told her hey I still have 2 months! LOL!

        • votermom says:

          Let me guess, you have color-coded spreadsheets? Not that I would know anything about those *whistles innocently*

    • LOL Timothy! I am north of Pittsburgh- out in the boonies so you could learn up here with not much traffic! Taught my Mom way back in 73/74. She was 49 then.
      I can see where your fear comes from- Pittsburgh can be unnerving with all the bridges and construction! Gotta get you started outside the city and let you work your way up!

  14. timothy2010 says:

    If I may I want to relate a corny story about placing an investment and reaping tremendous rewards.
    I had to move back to Pittsburgh because i had lost a job and when I got here I had the gorgeous mistake of picking up my 4 month old grand niece from day care. I walked in and saw her and there was no way she was ever going back. Her mom and dad sometimes go months without a phone call but She is now in kindergarten and the youngest in her class. Can read a little golden book, is sensitive and aware of others. Funny and independent. Teachers tell me she has no problems. Well tonight was light up night in our borough and she was dancing My three brothers their wives their children my sister, her mother and her boyfriend, her father and his girlfriend our neighbors all showed up and waited in the rain for an hour to see a rugrat dance for 3 minutesin the middle of a wet soaked street. So happy to see her so happy.

        What kind of freaks me out is not really remembering life without caring about something outside of me. Used to worry about whether I had enough money to get hammered for the weekend now I think is a Kindle Fire an appropriate gift for a 5 year old?

        • DandyTiger says:

          FYI: kindle touch is great, kindle fire is crap. Just in case you were really thinking about it.

        • 1539days says:

          The Nook Color beats the Kindle Fire’s ass all over the place. Fire has no SD slot, so you can’t boot it with Android and you can’t store additional data on it.

        • HELENK says:

          they have computers geared for preschool children. I would look into them.
          Also in the catalogs from bits and pieces they have replicas of old fashion cast iron banks. I got one for each of my grandchildren and for my three great grandsons. The teach the kids to save and have fun while doing so. The kids love them.
          One was a hockey game, another a baseball game, another was a monkey that climbed a tree, and another was kids playing leap frog.
          There is quite a variety of banks that both boys and girls would like.
          It is something they can keep and pass on to their kids if they want to do so

        Thing I like about Kindle is it comes with Amazon Cloud service so when I buy a Barbie movie it is stored in the cloud and I can access it from the tv to the kindle to the computer. I have had to buy that damned chihuahua movie 3 times because of scratches. Kindle just seems like an investment in future digital purchases. Movies-books-music-photos

        • 1539days says:

          The cloud is only as big as its weakest link. I find myself using more streaming through Netflix than trying to get TV shows in the mail. Then again, I don’t have an Amazon account. Obvioulsy, the Fire is at rock bottom pricing because they want everything on the cloud and they want people to buy books and media from Amazon.

          I don’t know what the technical limitations are, but I’m sure Amazon will make it as easy as possible to use digital media from them on the Fire.

        • DandyTiger says:

          You’ve got a point. I really don’t like the fire for reading (touch is much, much better with its e-ink). And frankly I think this first version of the fire is pretty bad. But one thing it has done is nicely integrate with the Amazon store and spec. streaming parts of that store. So they’ve got that.

    Question
    Over the last week a have received a couple of questions about gay men and raising children from people I know casually. I try to be open but as my monster is a girl more than one asked me if I thought I might have untoward feelings if I were caring for a boy. Feel kind of numb when people you know are equating you with sandusky but was not surprised. I think many more innocent young girls are abused everyday but believe it is not on the same newsworthy scale as the young boys. in the recent news.

    • timothy2010 says:

      Sorry about post just feeling bit sorry for myself after reading 750 million billion posts on Yahoo screaming innocent children where hurt because I find Tom Brady hot. Not a pedophile here. Do find Cam Gigganot very hot and he looks very young and is 2o years my junior, but he is at least mid twenties.

      • DandyTiger says:

        Don’t let that crap get you down. There’s a lot of hate out there. Some nut cases hate gays and some hate women and some hate other races/ethnic groups. Some real winners hate all of the above. And it appears lots of OWS seems to hate jews. At some point you have to say screw it, I can’t get bogged down in that shit.

        Be you.

          I am 44 and really don’t give a rat’s ass anymore but wonder whar it might be like if I were a 15 year old in Western Pa and hearing about the Penn State fiasco and what you hear is faggot. and then faggot and faggot. Faggot is taking down one of the best schools in the country. Granted not most but a vocal minority choose to blame it on freaking liberals and freak lifestyles. I am in western PA and paterno is still revered. He did what he was supposed to do. Really. You hear a kid is ass raped and you think your obligation is done by passing on the info to a superior?
          Not worried about the backlash for me I am already subjected to it, but anger is so diverse a thing. I worry about the kid perceived as gay and how they will be treated. Read lots of comment sections from tri-state areas and so many filled with hate never blame the actors but spend paragraphs spewing hate about faggots. Even Michelle Malkin’s comment section which is generally filled with a little hate has gone all out.
          The media can be powerful especially to the uninformed.
          I forget exactly what year it was 82-83 but I learned that because I had non-heterosexual thoughts that I caused aids. Shame. Guilt.
          Degenerate disgusting rapist pig has not only inconceivably damaged innocent kids but will also inflict a ton of pain upon many youths throughout America.
          Nike should be boycotted for refusing to take the name Joe Paterno off their youth education center,.

    I am a techno moron but over the years I have bought lots of kids movies/music/books from Amazon in digital format. Everything in my library is accessible forever– even past purchases. Again I am a moron when it comes to technolog but the Kindle Fire seems to suit me well for a 5 year old who can navigate her way around an Ipad better than I. Pretty sure the system can handle Nick Jr and that annoying Disney Pixie bit.

    • HELENK says:

      it may seem that I am pushing the banks, but the kids loved them.
      I just looked in the catalog and there is one of ballerina. You said she danced, then she would love this one.

      Is she old enough to take care of a kindle or a nook? Can you see if there is a item like it that is childproof. At 5 years old accidents happen with toys, it is part of being a kid

      • timothy2010 says:

        She respects things very well. She is great with a computer and can type in Nickjr.com and get in by herself and spend a butt load of money printing up all kinds of pictures. Wonder id she can do the same on Kindle fire and if you can put parental controls on. I hate the touch screen pads and definitely don’t want her typing in barbie.cum. She has had a netbook for almost two years but the screen is annoying.

          My husband gave me an iPad for my birthday last year, and the thing I use it for most is entertaining my 5 yo grandson. I have an old Kindle which I love. If you can get the functionality of both of then in one piece of equipment, go for it.

    “Gay and pedophile are two different things.”
    dah but many cannot separate the two
    say you are a non news junkie non blogger(most of the USA over 40) turn on your tv or pick up your local AP newspaper and hear/read about the Penn State tragedy. I think it is easy easier to think faggot and dismiss than it is to think this guy was a married Christian who loved his wife who also was fucking sick in the head as he sat next to me in church and shook my hand and said peace also with you.
    I think it is just more comfortable for people to write off such monstrosities as gay than view them as flat out disturbed persons especially when they were esteemed by the community.
    Side note sandusky’s attorney was the attorney who argued for a 17 year old girl to be emancipated from her parents and then 1 month before her 18th birthday she gave birth to his child!!!!!
    Also fired president who has a doctorate in sociology published a paper in the 70’s which at best is contoversial regarding sexual relationships.

    • elliesmom says:

      Just an FYI – most of the people I know online are over 40. My knitting group is mostly 60+, and they’re all online everyday. Older people are just as likely to be conscious of the news as younger people. Perhaps more as they have more time. There was an explosion of classes for seniors to learn to use computers 15 to 20 years ago, but they largely unnecessary now because older people already know how.
