Professional Climate Deniers

Okay Net Roots,

Are all these scientists paid off by the oil industry or what?  I'll do some research on them, but I'm a bit stunned by this web site.

Urban Pink

Someone on TPM said 6 men own over 60% of U.S. GDP (I haven't found anything to prove that yet), but it also looks like 6 scientists (are they all scientists?) are responsible for climate denying based on irrelevant data.

What's the best way to send Obama a message?

Kick Republican butt and don't keep selling us out to the rich!  Propose a huge JOBS BILL and MIDDLE CLASS TAX CUT and take it to the matt.

Who supports Nancy Pelosi?

ME!  And every fighting Democrat for every American patriot.

Are, or were, vaccines the left's climate denial?

I can't say I wasn't ever scared of the stories surrounding vaccines when faced with sticking needles in my first baby.  I spoke to a lot of people who worked with Autistic children who were convinced that vaccines were NOT the cause, and I'm there too now.  I also consulted my guru Andrew Weil who recommended it, and felt gratified and awed when I watched what vaccines used to be like in the John Adams series. UGH!

In an attempt to put my chidren less at risk, I spaced out their vaccines and asked about Mercury (most of which was removed by 2003, I believe).  It did show up last year in the flu vaccine!  But I couldn't help but wonder the game of deadly roulette the people who I knew who didn't vaccine were playing.  How would or could they insulate their children from the diseases of our global world?  Especially in a major city like L.A.?  Their sheltered kids would go to school with protected kids who could bring germs from anywhere. I would bet a lot of home school parents didn't vaccinate their kids...and perhaps they will get vaccinated now.

For me, the anti-vaccine movement was the left extremist belief in risks we could not prove, but we knew the greater risks--grounded in history.  So the left believed in an unproven risk (a major disease caused by vaccines), and the right denies a proven one (global warming).  They don't seem to have the same deadly weight, but sometimes they can.

Seems to be the word of the week for Democrats about Democrats.  It's often being used simply because people had expectations for Obama to do things that he never actually promised (single payer, an end to all American wars).  Since he has not fulfilled these fantasies (he never promised single payer, only hoped for it knowing it was unrealistic, and he clearly stated that he would put troops from Iraq into Afghanistan) some leftist bloggers are jumping to the conclusion that he wants war with Iran.

If his prompt attention to the Palestinian-Israeli peace proves anything, it is that he would like to avoid war with Iran.  Why didn't Bush even try?  For one thing it would have complicated the Neocon map of engagement.  You can't work toward peace AND use Palestinians as a reason for war.  Yet Democrats are today calling Obama a "Neocon."

Can we simply ask ourselves before we speak, "Is this true?"

And can we point out the true hypocrites that have mastered it so well that people often accept it without comment?  Like when conservatives say they hate "group politics" when the left protects them, but then work hard to have us hate many different groups?

The GOP is giddy because they think they are going to have a sweep

One of the reasons are "unenthusiastic" Democrats. 

Maybe we can be enthusiastic in our ability to give Obama a DEMOCRATIC CONGRESS like Clinton had when he DID GREAT THINGS.

Divided government will mean 4 years of no legislation, Presidential proclamations, and a Republican President in 2012.

Conservative philosophy

I can be very biblical about my concern for the poor and the American laborer.  If we really look at the philosophy of corporate power, it is not religious at all, it is pure greed and they use deception and hatred to recruit religious people for their own advancement.

I just had this thought, though, spawned by a Dr. Oz facebook post that discusses how some states are trying to make their public school cafeterias healthier.  It takes a lot of education and restructuring to do so, so in other words, money.  Health=investment.  Isn't this the truth with every aspect of our society?

The party of No, and Tax Cuts, gets what it pays for--nothing.  And worse, really, that party gets poverty, uncritical, uneducated, low wage workers.  So my question for them is:

What, you want a healthy, happy, rich, country, town, and neighborhood, but you're not wiling to pay for it (and don't get me started on the war)?

The Best Life

I just put this link on my website because this program is really helping me get more energy, stay in a good mood, and channel more art.  It's free for a month to see if it works for you, and then 9.95 after that which I consider an addition to my much healthier grocery bill.

Best life to all!

Bush 2

Check it out, she's a narcissistic, perfectionist, bully who doesn't have the moral responsibility to say, "I was wrong, paid my 200K fine, and said I was sorry."

Watch out California.

Tea Bag motifs

Thanks Teeluck,

I adopted the "Don't Tread On Me" symbol during the Bush years when his bullying example was encouraging police abuse and crimes against our civil rights (some even remain to be corrected).

I believe that the Tea Bag groups don't have any idea why they use it.  It's much more fitting for the oppressed than elitist oppressors who seem incapable of clarifying what they do want...but scream for what they don't want, like taxes on the rich, or liberals teaching in public schools, and regulations on companies like BP.


Spanish Politician criticizes foes of Israel

I do believe that many leftists have a double standard when it comes to Israel.  It's okay for the U.S. to imperfectly defend ourselves against our enemies, but Israel has to be perfect.  I've been there, too.

Mission Accomplished: Martyrs might lift the blockade.

Helen Thomas

Yuk.  This whole issue stinks.  I don't like what she said, I don't like how she's being treated, and I just come away with this thought:

She is angry at war, our war, their war, war, war, war, war.

But are we going to go there?

Are we going to ask the real questions that effect us all or are half of Americans going to think she's a Jew hater and the other half going to say Jews are too powerful (neither one of which is true), and then we'll bounce on to the next free speech controversy?

Israel and Turkey's extremist muslims' deadly actions in the past week directly led to Helen's comment.

I for one, want to do more research into the situation in Israeli, Turkish, and Egyptian waters.

What is legal?  What is moral?  What is feasible to protect the state of Israel??  At what point should America stop supporting Israel?  Philosophically?  Morally?  Over this????  Really?

In 2010, what makes Israel any more war-like that our own?

Whoa, this looks so random and interesting...

How will you spin it when one of your members kills somebody?

Geico voice actor loses his job for that.  Wow.  Somebody interview him!!

What does Alaska do when the protected prey outnumbers the predator?

Kill the prey.

Alaskan authorities have been killing wolves to keep moose and caribou populations preserved for human hunting, at rates of 60% to 75% sport.  When moose and caribou populations get so high they are unsustainable (because of course, the authorities over hunt the wolves), the authorities shoot the moose and caribou.  MMMM, hunting.

A thousand points of death

Ted Rall is a facebook friend of mine, I hope to enter the field of political caricature when my children are both in school!

He does a GREAT job of defining why the Tea Party folks are losing steam.  I try to be honest about what people seem to want from the other side, from the conservative side, because I think it makes sense to try to bring people together.

But what I've seen from them, their arguments, their paranoia, their HATE for whatever Glenn Beck defines for them as worth hating, their eagerness to criticize rather then understand, are what they are wrapped up in, and it's not reality.

If they could make a coherent argument that wasn't based on the hatred of liberals or the president, or Nancy Pelosi, or Democrats, or whatever straw man they've created, they might be believed.  But they are so absolute in their partisanship, talking points, and unscientific dogma, that they hit most people exactly like the press is portraying them--as radicalized idiots with no basis in fact.  e.g. Taxation without representation?  Really?  If anything, the corporations get over represented and pay no taxes (and it's not new)!!  But it's the millionaires Beck and Limbaugh, working for billionaires, that threaten middle class Americans with job losses if folks don't support big corporations not having to pay taxes.  A brilliant scheme, isn't it?  And the rich get richer, and the middle classes pay the taxes.

And the truth is, the right would have a point if they didn't try so hard to place blame on the shoulders of half of America, but not the true monsters, or themselves.

Our country is in debt, and we're spending too much, so what are WE going to do about it?

Tea Parties In Beverly Hills!

I am very curious about the push back that is occurring toward the Bush thugs that have emerged from the MSM and the ivory tower of Berkley and the Whitehouse; now they live with the rest of us, the masses that they've successfully fooled.

First John Yoo gets verbally harassed at a speech about his book. Now Karl Rove suffers verbal abuse from a handcuff-bearing pink hat. John Yoo didn't flee, but a larger share of the audience wanted to hear him speak (cough), and there was security to help him.

What was the Beverly Hills bookstore thinking? That Karl Rove isn't controversial?

Congressmen get verbally abused and spit upon by tea partiers.
Former administration officials get threatened with a citizen's arrest from an anti-war organization.

People are waking up!

What a beautiful world!


Of course, it would have behooved Cantor to point out that the guy who targeted him had actually targeted BOTH sides of the political spectrum, but no, instead he offers that the bullies are ON both sides of the spectrum. Big of him.

Why Now?

The paranoid corrupted Christian militia group that was arrested Saturday had leaders about my age. They were 45 and 44, respectively.

Yesterday, I was considering how, for the most part, my generation has escaped serving in a war. I have one friend in the Air Force in South Korea, another is a national guard member who serves in law enforcement in Missouri. Neither have been to Iraq or Afghanistan, whose soldiers are our young generation, boomer's children and sometimes our children.

I know that most of the Tea Party activists are boomers, still grinding out a battle with the hippies that they hated in the 1960s. Even Jon Yoo at Berkeley is still fighting that fight with his rhetoric. But he is my age, the oldest child of the youngest boomers.

I believe that he, and the militia group in Michigan, are on the same page in that they have an abstract view of life and war.

This separation from the real horrors of war and cruel death allow both a civilian policy of torture for the unrepresented accused and a plot to kill innocent American policeman. It seems so departed from human rationality because it is.

Even the "break windows" guy doesn't support busted militia

Exactly why words matter

This is why it matters, Glenn Beck, when you start calling your political opponents the anti-christ.

This isn't about free speech and this isn't about being politically correct; it's about being morally responsible for what we say.

It's about being without sin with our words, impeccable with our words.

Believe me, I need to work on that, too.

I grew up with people assuming that my family did not pay taxes because we were foreigners--even had a fellow college student and roommate assume this about me.

They were wrong. All residents pay taxes whether or not they are citizens. It's called taxation WITHOUT representation.

Now I keep seeing bloggers accusing liberals of being tax evaders!! I don't get that! Most rich people are conservative, and I think most tax evaders are rich, so why are liberals and hippies getting that rap?

It ticks me off, because man, do we pay our taxes. A lot of taxes.

Glenn Beck promises policy solutions!

"We must be independent. These pressures keep building and the vise gets tighter and tighter and tighter. There are — I was going to say easy — there are not easy long-term principles. But there are long-term principles that will solve these issues. We've talked about them at length many times. We're going to talk about them in the next few weeks. I'm going to solve some of these things.

And you've got — I'm telling you, you don't have to agree with my answer. But you've got to be behind something that makes sense."

Oh goody, I can't wait to see what his solutions are!!!!

A plan to do nothing

#1. Even if you get a majority and vote to repeal, Obama is unlikely to sign it.
#2. You condition your reform ideas on a repeal instead of suggesting how the reform could be molded to your ideas.
#3. Either you didn't think of that, or you're plan is actually to do nothing (unless Obama signs your repeal, if you get a majority in November...).

Also, I will do everything I can to help an oppenent beat Sen. DeMint's reelection bid in the fall. Even funding a different Republican. Not only do I oppose him for successfully blocking a national security appointment that I personally knew to be incredibly valuable for our security, he thinks gay people shouldn't marry because they would spread disease. Even if that were as true as the fact that straight married people can spread disease, doesn't marriage STOP the spread of disease? This guy's logic is really skewed. He also use the term "break him" for Obama that I've since heard South Carolinians say is an old reference to "slave breaking" [I incorrectly wrote lynching earlier]. I will refrain from calling him names, but wowsy do I want to.

Heard about the Parliamentarian on Thom Hayden today!

Appointed by Republicans!!!!

Yeah we never cared when Bush spent our money, but not YOU

YOU'RE GOING TO BANKRUPT AMERICA!! They cry, and again, just like Clinton, the Democrats will fix the problems the GOP made, and the GOP will attack us the whole time, and then they'll get elected and f*$@##@ things up again. Or will they?

We do have the internet now.... (-:

Not to mention:

OBAMA IS GOVERNMENT TYRANNY!!! When it was Bush that WAS tyrannical when he disabled the bill of rights, and had the authority to kill anyone (not sure if Obama has reversed this) and they just didn't care. Everything they say about Obama is really about Bush.


Bliss if you want talking points that hit home...

The Senate takes steps to declare war with Iran

Main actors: Chris Dodd, Richard Shelby, Lieberman, John Kyl, and Mitch McConnell.

Pols in paradise: RNC in Hawaii - Jonathan Martin -

Oh look, I'll point out hypocrisy on both sides. But I find Republicans do it openly, and with months of planning.

From the L.A. Times

China owns a huge percentage of U.S. debt.
China buys oil from Iran.
U.S. wants China to sanction Iran.

Watching Daniel in the Lions' Den

LOVE it. Great opportunity to correct the rhetoric Republicans use to try to keep Bush's policies know, like those economic policies that wrecked our economy and led to so many job losses. Including those "across the board" tax cuts...

Looking back to July

I was just checking some old videos and came across this one. I'm not that familiar with Michelle, and am not impressed, wow, what B.S. (notice how much she says, "everything," "always," "entire," and what an apologist for racial intolerance), but I stopped watching the Today show when Bush was president because that guy beside Michelle, Matt and the Today producers, seemed so out-of-reality-enamored of Bush. What is fascinating about this video is how clearly disgusted Matt is by the words spewing out of Michelle's mouth. Look at Matt's face! Worth a watch to me!

One reason why I distrust big companies...

Haliburton acting inhumanely, thanks to Dick Cheney and thank God for Franken...

Here's a list of who did and didn't vote for the Franken Amendment to allow workers a fair trial. I notice that Senator DeMint, who I will actively campaign against, voted against it. I believe he severely compromised our national security over his anti-union theocracy.

Cultural Climate of Hate

I watched Glenn Beck's documentary on Stalin et. al. and I realized how distracting it is from today's climate, that he contributes to. I think Beck's a bully who is campaigning to make progressive/liberal values an American enemy. My conservative friend is just laughing off his lies as "opinions" and tells me it "wakes" her up. I've told her he's trying to scare her and me and he's inflammatory and dangerous for my family; and that I will speak up when I see hate.

The Bush administration raised the status of bullying and government control in this country and the world and I don't think we've seen the end of it among our people. I sense that the election of Obama has emboldened hate groups and we've recently seen proof of that. The guy who killed 3 cops in Philadelphia was a skinhead who actually posted a clip of Glenn Beck on a neo-Nazi website that confirmed a conspiracy theory the killer had.

I don't think Hitler's funny (see the site above; the blogger thinks I'm being "politically correct"). You may want to check out Southern Poverty Law Center's Hate Map to find the skinheads in your state.

Healthcare, Massachusetts, and the House

Schmog's wise comments and a great link to an article are linked here.

I just want to say that no Massachusetts voter in their right mind would vote in a Senator that would vote to undermine the progressive, universal healthcare that they receive in Massachusetts. The plan that Brown voted for, not against. Get it?

Brown voted for Universal Healthcare
