Joe take care of others that need it out of your own pocket, not the pocket of others. Didn't notice much in the way of charitable contributions on your tax returns Joe. Liberals are always generous with someone elses money. Makes me want to scream.

Sorry about the double post. Don't know how that happened

"Verily I say unto you, Inasmuch as ye have extracted money by threat of force from the wealthy (but not those so wealthy as to be politically untouchable) and given it unto one of the least of these my brethren, ye have done it* unto me."

*The rendering unto, not the extracting by threat from.

Boy, King George could have used a guy like Joe Biden.

So all the people who are going to pay lower taxes can now feel like good Catholics for having people that earn more pay higher taxes on their behalf. That is a new morality.

I love Laura Linney as an actress, but they are replaying her Emmy acceptance last night and her community organizer crack was so stupid, Almost as stupid as Recount getting so many nominations even though about 5 people watched it.

from last night. of course

I may just be more cynical than usual here, but don't most people seem to discover that God and their religion want them to do whatever it is they've decided to do anyway?

Mstu

Biden is trading he fooled all the Catholics into putting in Bill. That's how he got in.

"don't most people seem to discover that God and their religion want them to do whatever it is they've decided to do anyway?"

Yeah. But, for me it's real.

I remember the first time I heard Kathleen Turner speak something other than a script; I think it gave me permanent erectile dysfunction.

There's a reason actors need to work from scripts.

WASHINGTON (CNN) – A new CNN/Opinion Research Corporation Poll suggests that by a 2-to-1 margin, Americans blame Republicans over Democrats for the financial crisis that has swept across the country the past few weeks — one factor that may have contributed to an apparent increase in Barack Obama’s edge over John McCain in the race for the White House.

In the new survey, released Monday afternoon, 47 percent of registered voters questioned say Republicans are more responsible for the problems currently facing financial institutions and the stock market, with 24 percent saying Democrats are more responsible. One in five of those polled blame both parties equally, and 8 percent say neither party is to blame.

"There's a reason actors need to work from scripts."

Is it the same reason Obama works from a script?

JM Hanes

Well, there's also a reason Obama insisting on changing the order of the Presidential debates so that they start with foreign policy on Friday, not the economy, as planned -- so to speak.

Sue

JMH,

When did they change it? Just this weekend they were saying economy would be Friday night.

Sara (Pal2Pal)

O'Reilly is doing an Obama/Ayers/Dorhn segment tonight, I think.

bunky

Sara:

Here is how Ted Baxter will frame the show: "I belive the senator is a stand up guy, and that he did not realize the gravity of the Ayers' past. Obama is an idealist and turned to William Ayers and Bernadine Dorn because of what he thought was there progressive (Ted will use finger quotes) views on education. Any real chance the far right has to tie the senator to the weather underground will not get traction with fair minded folks."

Clueless extraordinaire

JM Hanes

Sue:

I can't remember where I saw it, but per the Times Online:

At the request of Mr Obama, Friday’s debate will focus on foreign affairs with a full discussion on economic issues delayed until the third — and final — forum on October 15. After acknowledging yesterday that “this is a global financial crisis and it requires a global solution”, neither the Democratic nominee nor his Republican rival expect to avoid difficult questions on the economy when they meet in Oxford, Mississippi, this week.
Sounds like the debates may turn out to be a messy affair.

Sara (Pal2Pal)

Bunky: you nailed it. LOL.

centralcal

Ha Ha, Bunky! Sounds just like O'Reilly!

Sue

JMH,

Thanks.

Of course, if Saracuda mentions (or not) her church, that means the GOP ticket will lead us to a theocratic dictatorship.
But if Slo Joe mentions it, no biggie.

I, for one, welcome our Catholic overlords. (Hi Pope!)

I want to give O'Really such a punch. He had Stanly Kurtz on his show and talked so much we heard nothing from Dr. Kurtz. I wish I were conducting the interview.

I am steamed.

bad:

He is good on some things like the hollywood left. However, he will not take the time or effort to be a killer on certain issues like OBVIOUS and GLARING ties to 60's commie terrorists. I think he got burned a few years back and he has been on a silly crusade to appear fair because like most of us he wnats to be accepted. Oh well, we all new he would not be up to the challenge on Ayers.

In his interview with Katie Couric Biden said “When the stock market crashed, Franklin Roosevelt got on television and didn’t just talk about the Princes of Greed, he said look here’s what’s happened.”

Approximately 2:00 into interview.

I never realized the doctrione of a religion became that of the state. But then who am to disagree with a man who believes the extortion of money by the government is patriotic. I am sure Tony Soprano agrees.

Sara (Pal2Pal)

“When the stock market crashed, Franklin Roosevelt got on television and didn’t just talk about the Princes of Greed, he said look here’s what’s happened.”

This doesn't even make sense. Hoover was president in 1929 and I'm positive they didn't have television. In fact, who had a TV before April 1945 when FDR died? Did anyone?

George Soros Group Takes Credit For Nixing Palin's Invitation From Anti-Ahmadinejad Rally

Chris Dodd, the chia pet of Country Wide, & Lehman, Fannie Mae, et al; doesn't hide under a rock instead of proferring his special wisdom. Add this to his role in the upholding of the veto of regulations on options, and SPE, which gave Enron,WorldCom,

Sara,

I believe the first TV transmissions were in 1939 in New York.

Full introduction delayed by WW2.

Philo Farnsworth invented TV in the 20s.

He also invented a fusion reactor (the precursor to the Bussard Fusion Reactor sometimes called Polywell) in the late 50s.

He worked with Robert Hirsch who also worked with Bussard at the AEC.

Joe Biden thought the email attack against McCain was wrong for about two seconds:

Biden Backs Down [Byron York]
A statement from Joe, released tonight by the Obama campaign:

I was asked about an ad I’d never seen, reacting merely to press reports. As I said right then, I knew there was nothing intentionally personal in the criticism of Senator McCain’s views which look backwards not forwards and are out of touch with the new economic challenges we face today. Having now reviewed the ad, it is even more clear to me that given the disgraceful tenor of Senator McCain’s ads and their persistent falsehoods, his campaign is in no position to criticize, especially when they continue to distort Barack’s votes on an issue as personal as keeping kids safe from sexual predators.

When are we going to fire everyone of these gasbags? I am with Jane. When does the revolution start? Clarice, we need pikes, pitchforks and pistolas.

"Catholic social doctrine as I was taught it is, you take care of people who need the help the most,".

The Senator is mistaken. Catholic social doctrine is "I take care of people who need the help most" as best I can. (Note the Senator's history of charitable contributions) The poor Senator is confused about what rendering to Caesar is all about in the worst way.

NotSean

Looking at him, Jesus felt a love for him and said to him, “One thing you lack: go and sell all you possess and give to the poor, and you will have treasure in heaven; and come, follow Me.” But at these words he was saddened, and he went away grieving, for he was one who owned much property. And Jesus, looking around, said to His disciples, “How hard it will be for those who are wealthy to enter the kingdom of God!” The disciples were amazed at His words. But Jesus answered again and said to them, “Children, how hard it is to enter the kingdom of God! “It is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle than for a rich man to enter the kingdom of God.” (Mk 10:21-25)

If Obama is Jesus, Palin is Pilate, McCain is Methuseleh, and Lieberman is Judas, who's Caesar?

I've got the pikes--well, actually, they are sharp metal skewers for grilling shish kabob. Pofarmer will have to get the pitchforks. I'm sure PUK can rustle up pistolas.(He has an eye for such things.)
