No blackout here

A number of conservative blogs will be dark today in support of Aaron Walker. We will remain open, not because we don’t support Mr. Walker’s right to free speech, but because we’re not a conservative blog. Besides, we were never very good about doing what everyone else does.

(Not to mention that the doctor said that blogging is good therapy for a certain Klown.)

Party on.

    Why are they doing this on a Friday again? Seems like the last one proved Friday is a poor day to do a blog blast.

    Wow, the header looks so inviting and alligator-free.

    Just saw this. LOL.

      Desperation’s not pretty to watch.

      Saw the tape of that guy crying that this is the end of Democracy. But he’s late to the show. A lot of us recognized the end of Democracy when it happened in May 2008.

      One of the real positives about the current political climate is that conservatives have finally begun publicly showcasing their sense of humor. Even my very liberal husband finds their tweets to be very cleverly funny. When he hears me laugh out loud, he wants to know what Iowahawk is up to today. And he follows the “Crawdad Gang”. Thompson is good, too. Laughter is a great persuader.

        Yes the GOP is getting its humor back. Case in point was a bumper sticker I saw in Milwaukee: “How do you stop 12 runners? 1 Walker.”

    Lordy, lordy, Obama is giving a statement at 10:15 about the economy and actually going to take some reporter questions!

    What’s he avoiding now that he would rather talk about the economy for once?

    And see, THIS is why Americans have become so stubborn on the issue of tax increases on anyone. They want the debt and budget dealt with, and “tax increases on the wealthy” are always sold as being a way to do that (even if it’s only a drop in the bucket.)

    But we know they won’t be used for that. They NEVER are. The minute you give DC a nice little pot of extra money, they refuse to pay down the credit card, but instead find something new to spend it on.

    Obama’s new ad admits it. The Buffet Rule, sold to the public as a debt-reducer, suddenly needs to be passed so Obama can spend it on a “jobs” stimulus. If every time I gave someone a check to go pay the mortgage they instead came home with a new stereo, eventually I’d reach the point where I’M NOT HANDING YOU ANY MORE FUCKING CHECKS. And DO NOT then whine to me that I’m the one who doesn’t care about the mortgage. Because you are full of shit.

    I’m really tired of being continually told by a repeatedly untrustworthy entity that the fact that I don’t trust them is my failing and there is something wrong with me. Fuck you.

    • I just LOVE your rants!
      I have a hard enough time paying my own damn bills- but I cut back and cut back and cut back- and thanks be to God the garden is coming along- asparagus is done, spinach is done, snap peas are going very nicely- so even cut back the grocery bill.
      I do not want to give one more penny to the shopaholics in DC. They spend OUR money as if it grows on trees.

      • WMCB says:

        I think a lot of people wouldn’t mind a small tax increase, if it meant that we were really going to pay down the debt, and also cut spending.

        But they’ve played the bait-and-switch on the public so many times now, that voters don’t care, and don’t believe them.

        The Hot New Voter Category in the US of A? The Honey Badger Vote. Honey Badger don’t care. Honey Badger don’t give a shit.

    Seen on a comment, no link:

    Dirty little secret. In San Francisco’s district, there were over 94,000 Democratic ballots cast in the primary. There were only approx 44,000 votes for Obama. Yes, he got almost 100% of what D vote participated on the presidential portion.

    But the dirty secret is that almost half the D’s who voted, voted for the other stuff but declined to check his name, even though he was the only one on the ballot.

    I think that while not a lot of D’s will switch to Mitt, a BUTTLOAD of D’s arre going to decline to vote for The Once.

    • DandyTiger says:

      Holy crap. That is big.

    • Karma says:

      One place I did try and flush out some stats was by looking at Sen Feinstein’s numbers but it wasn’t that big of a difference. Wow…thanks for bringing that over.

      Obama – 1,641,445

      Feinstein – 1,884,429

      Difference of 242,984

      It will be interesting to see what Erica turns up in the next few days.

      • Oswald says:

        Obama ran unopposed. DiFi was in a “top two” primary with about 20 other people. Not everyone loves her. I voted for someone else.

        • Karma says:

          Yup, it made for an odd looking ballot too, like I said, it was just an attempt to flush out some clues to the Keith Judd/protest vote.

          I also added up the other Dem Senatorial candidates which represent 274,137 voters. But didn’t include it due to the problems with just the straight comparison with Feinstein and Obama.

    ‘You’re Not Special’: High School Teacher Gives the Most Blunt Commencement Address Ever

    Hilarious speech. Quite Epic.

    • ROFL! Wish every single helicopter parented, lacking work ethic, inflated ego graduate could hear this! (and that includes college grads as well!)

      We knew we were not the center of the world- as Mom would say so. “The world does not revolve around you!” Which of course I also said to my three. More kids need to hear it, know it and understand it.
