Oops...

Bill in AZ

He makes McGovern look like Goldwater. That's the issue. Well, among others.

...and I make Goldwater look like McGovern... hmmm...

Extraneus

It's not even from the Rome, NY feed. Shame.

Ouch.

RichatUF

Pofarmer-

Don't quite know the direction of the list but a few more you are free to edit:

1. Had campaign staff register and vote in states in which they were not a resident.

2. Supports the misnamed "union card check" legistlation, a measure which is to the left of even George McGovern.

3. He did not support the successful surge in Iraq because he said it wouldn't work, but does support a surge in Afghanistan?

4. He has threatened on more than one occasion to bomb Pakistan.

5. He stated that "Palestanians" have a claim to Jerusalem after telling AIPAC that Jerusalem is the undivided capital of Israel.

6. He has a collection of Middle East advisors who have stated the US should invade Israel and have negotiated with Syria, Egypt, and Hamas.

7. He campaigned on a platform of anti-NAFTA trade protectionism, while at the same time, sending an economics advisor to Canada to claim he didn't mean it (suppose he didn't know that the US imports 1.9 million bbl oil/day from Canada, oops)

8. His name was found in a collection of documents from a dead FARC terrorist which stated: "...that they are interested in your compatriots. Obama will not support ‘Plan Colombia’ nor will he sign the TLC (Free Trade Agreement).”

I could be plumbing these depths all night.

Publius

Character is important, people of characher do not choose to be around people without character.

If someone chooses to be around people who lack character, it shows lack of character, and I certainly would avoid them.

sbw @ 5:16 pm

Your reference to character reminded me of what Iowahawk had to say on the subject just following the election; "In his famous speech at the Lincoln Memorial 45 years ago, Dr. King said 'I have a dream that one day my childdren will live in a nation where they will not be judged by the color of their skin, but by the content of their character.' Let us now that pride that Tuesday we Americans proved that neither thing matters anymore."

sbw

Heh!

Publius

*****Ok, it's children******

sbw

Not fast enough. The "Heh" was about the Rome, NY feed.

sbw

King was an educated man for whom language mattered. What Axelrod and Ayers demonstrate is that for Obama, language not only doesn't matter, he doesn't know why it should.

Language and character are tightly coupled because language is the means by which we think. It can be no other way.

PD

Language matters to Obama. It's important as a means of disinformation and dissimulation.

cassandra

schadenfreude - actors homes on fire in California - maybe Oprah's?
Celebrities eating their young (their supposed political allies Obama voters)

Publius

I really need to get in the habit of using the preview thing.

Iowahawk's punch line, not King's, that I butchered so badly, should read; "Let us now take pride that Tuesday we Americans proved that neither thing matters anymore."

RichatUF

Oh and thanks DrJ for the pointers. I can't believe that so many stories surround Obama and every single one of them died on the vine. Not a single one, and the media is going out of its way to rehabilitate Ayers and Dohrn (wonder if they make the morning show talk circuit when their book on "white racism" makes it big debut)

Another one:

Got another political supporter, head of a capital management firm, a contract to manage funds for the Illinois Teachers Retirement System. They were fired in 2006 for underperformance of a fund that is woefully underfunded and corrupt.

DrJ

Thanks for fleshing out my rambling, Rich.

SunnyDay

Ann, Lifelock is generally considered a ripoff. They don't do anything you cannot do yourself. Try Privacy Guard - check your own reports every month or so for info that is not yours. Check your statements carefully. Homeowner's insurance now covers ID theft, with most companies.

Pofarmer

Thanks all.

I was thinking along the things that most people would agree would disqualify a candidate, or make him unelectable, regardless of party affiliation. I'm afraid that he Iraq stuff gets too far in the partisan weeds. The Nafta comments were just breathtakingly stupid. Not sure where to go with that.

Keep em coming.

Pofarmer

What about having 3 positions on Iran in 2 days?

One day being for an undivided Jerusalem and the next day talking about how the parties involved would have to negotiate it.

DrJ

Israel?

Pofarmer

Supports "Equal pay for equal work" which is basically the govt saying what job is equal to what other job and setting wages.

Ann

Thanks so much, Sunny Day!

Have you read this great article: A Natural Patton: How Palin Nearly Saved McCain by Kyle-Anne Shiver

The ending:

May it rest in the infamy it deserves.

This election was a triumph not of principle or workable solutions, but of pander to the greed of hosts of those who think Obama will solve their problems and pay their bills from the public trough. From start to finish, Obama ran a campaign more suitable for American Idol than the presidency of the United States, and the mainstream media were his willing enablers in hiding disturbing facts from public view. Obama-Biden outspent McCain-Palin more than four to one and still failed to deliver the knockout punch they and their media lapdogs envisioned.

But Sarah Palin still has a whole state to run, a pipeline to finish, and millions of cubic feet of natural gas to deliver to us in the lower 48.

Godspeed, Governor Palin. Until we meet again. The sooner the better, as far as I’m concerned.

Amen

RichatUF

Pofarmer-

What about having 3 positions on Iran in 2 days?

1. Campaigned against Hillary Clinton on her vote to designate the IRGC as a terrorist group, but then claimed that he supported the designation.

2. Said that he would sit down and negotiate without precondition with Ahmadinejad, then stated that Ahmadinejad does not really run Iran (ie he's a "figurhead"), and he would "select" the leader he'd negotiate with.

3. Said that Israel was well within its rights to bomb a nuclear target in Syria but that the US didn't have a right to bomb nuclear targets in Iran.

Frau Jedöns

The FBI FOI info on the WUO mentions some members went to Paris and met with the N Vietnamese. Kerry, too, went to Paris in 1970 (on his honeymoon!) met with some N Vietnamese and gave public testimony later before congress that he had met with "both" sides.

Bernardine Dohrn is often mentioned as the brains of the small "c" communist Chicago couple. Older than Billy Ayers, she was already a lawyer when she joined the SDS prior to forming the WUO and becoming the president. She went to Cuba with the Venceremos Brigade who received training from the Cubans and North Vietnamese. She was at Sidley when Michelle began working there and was still there when Obama started his summer internship in 1989. So Ayers did not meet the president-elect until 1995? Ayers received his PhD Ed from Columbia in 1987 and began teaching that very year in Chicago where Obama had been since 1985. Ayers and his Chicago connections are essential to Obama's "journey."

Pofarmer

Holy crap Rich, I don't know where you're finding this stuff. Thanks.

O.K. I've reorganized some, with the stuff that would seem to represent actual legal jeapardy at the top. To me, A, B, and C, would seem to present a real problem if anybody was interested.

A)Caught in a scheme buying a house with assistance from his number one fundraiser who was convicted of fraud.
B) the transparent quid pro quo of his wife getting a raise tripling her salary to $300k just before Obama directed a $1M earmark to her employer
C)Runs one of the most questionable finance campaign schemes ever, where foreign nationals and anyone else can easily donate without verification.
D) Had campaign staff register and vote in states in which they were not a resident
E)Campaign seal is probably illegal.
F) His name was found in a collection of documents from a dead FARC terrorist which stated: "...that they are interested in your compatriots. Obama will not support ‘Plan Colombia’ nor will he sign the TLC (Free Trade Agreement).”

G)Spending over $600,000,000 getting elected on a manifesto of "Spreading the wealth".
I) Incriminating tape toasting a former PLO spokesman the LA times won't release.
J) Has for an economics advisor someone who presided over the largest bank failure of the 1990's which pioneered subprime mortgage lending (Superior Bank).

L) Includes among his top advisors Franklin Raines, former CEO of Fannie Mae
M) Uses for his Vice Presidential search, another former CEO of Freddie Mac.
N)Funds a group actively involved in vote fraud.
P)Works for and with the same group actively involved in vote fraud.
Q)Distributed 160 million dollars in the Chicago Annenberg Challenge without one thing to show for it.
R) Got another political supporter, head of a capital management firm, a contract to manage funds for the Illinois Teachers Retirement System. They were fired in 2006 for underperformance of a fund that is woefully underfunded and corrupt.
S)Won't release his birth certificates or medical records.

T) No release of college transcripts.
U) repeatedly lied about the extent of his relationship with the communist who started his political career
V) falsely accused the NRLC of lying after the organization exposed the fact that his record did not match his rhetoric on born alive infant protection legislation.

X) Runs openly on platform of wealth redistribution..
Y)Made a career out of voting "present"

CC) He stated that "Palestinians" have a claim to Jerusalem after telling AIPAC that Jerusalem is the undivided capital of Israel.
DD) He campaigned on a platform of anti-NAFTA trade protectionism, while at the same time, sending an economics advisor to Canada to claim he didn't mean it (suppose he didn't know that the US imports 1.9 million bbl oil/day from Canada, oops)

EE) Supports "Equal pay for equal work" which is basically the govt saying what job is equal to what other job and setting wages.
FF)Sits in a church for 20 years with a raving lunatic of a racist preacher.

SunnyDay

Ann (or anyone), if you like, email me admin@creditboards.com and I'll give you some tips on getting reports on a regular basis for free or very cheap.

RichatUF

Frau Jedöns-

Check the Free Republic boards. Ferdora had a few pieces up during the 2004 election which went through all the connections among the Class of 68 New Left. IIRC the VVAW had connections to the SDS (which was the precusor group to the Weather Underground) and they were working together at some level on the "Winter Solider Investigations".

Jor

Bill Ayers -- TM once again focusing on the important issues of the day. ONE WORD -- HACKTACULAR.

Obama's first task in office needs to be to stop spreading wealth to the welfare states in the south --- that are sooooo unbelievably poor and uneducated. They need to stop re-distributing tax $$'s from NY, NJ, CA, MA, etc. to hicks in the south. Lets START there. Then we'll see what you think of government.

Jor

PLEASE -- WINGNUTTIA -- STOP TAKING money from blue states. Why is this not wing-nut issue #1? Joe the Plumber SAYS SPREADING THE WEALTH IS EVIL.

Pofarmer

OH good Lord.

Via Gatewaypundit.

This thing is like the Parody of an above board administration.

Judicial Watch, the public interest group that investigates and prosecutes government corruption, announced today that it has obtained documents linking Valerie Jarrett, an advisor to Barack Obama and the co-chairman of the President-Elect's transition team, to a series of real estate scandals, including several housing projects operated by convicted felon and Obama fundraiser/friend Antoin "Tony" Rezko.

RichatUF

Pofarmer-

Holy crap Rich, I don't know where you're finding this stuff.

DrJ just jogged my memory. Had to look up the quote on Obama and FARC, and it was Ariel Capital Mamagement which got fired (they got clipped when Rezko was brought to trial. Rezko managed to stack the board of the teachers pension fund which is probably one of the worst public employee pensions in the country.)

George S

Pofarmer:

He believes that our Constitution is fundamentally flawed as it only gives government negative rights (read: Our Freedom)...

He has no problem using, or threatening to use, law enforcement to intimidate "liars" into submission...(as in the American Issues Project 527 that ran the Ayers ad)

Sara (Pal2Pal)

Jarrett was named today to be Senior White House Advisor.

Pofarmer

Forgot about the Obama truth squads in MO.

RichatUF

Pofarmer-

Oh and I see that you found that Valerie Jarrett is a crony too. She ran the Housing and Development Authority in Chicago and the Chicago Transit Authority. I think her name popped up on the radar screen in the Chicago Loop development that spelled doom for Rezko.

Antimedia
Who cares about Bill Ayers? Shit, we have trillions of dollars heading out of the Treasury.
If you're worried about that, you'd better strap yourself in. Trillions more are fixing' to leave. Now that your favored party is in power, the spending will go through the roof.
RichatUF

More like Joe the Plumber is going to say to the State of Ohio to bring him a dump truck full of money. 6 state agencies-those guys are fucked.

Ann

SunnyDay,

I emailed you. Thanks again.

thinking

it seems odd that the Treasury department suddenly changed the bailout now - I wonder if people from Obama's new administration are already there telling them what to do.

also members of congress should be blamed more than anyone working at the Treasury department - we vote for them, they accomplish nothing most of the time but when there are TV cameras around they suddenly become "outraged" so people can see how much they care. The way they treated Kashkari today was appalling - they could criticize him in a more professional way. Although he might not be capable of a job with that much responsibility they treated him like a criminal who was on trial - they were doing it for the cameras and nobody is fooled by them.

RichatUF

...it seems odd that the Treasury department suddenly changed the bailout now...

Not really. No one really knows how deep the hole is regarding the CDSs and no one can quantify the legal risk of tearing down the MBSs. The Treasury, looking at weak banks that are being squeezed by CDSs on the one side and an unquantifible legal risk on the other, is keeping the risk on the shallowest pockets available.

Would you want to price the risk model on a shareholder (or bondholder) lawsuit where the deepest pocket and the entity with fiduciary duty is the US Federal Government?

Steve Diamond

Frau Jedons: Dohrn is not a lawyer. She graduated from law school (classmate of Judson Miner, Obama's first boss out of HLS) and passed the NY bar exam but was not admitted to the bar in NY because of her criminal past.

thinking

I worked for a bank so I know they're not telling people about all their losses - maybe people from the Treasury department starting going through the books and realized the situation was worse than they thought. People at banks also knew some of those loans shouldn't have been made so maybe the government doesn't want to buy those assets now because they're worried about lawsuits. But people at the Treasury department said there would be offices ready for people from the new administration the day after the election so they must already be there and I'm sure they're involved in the process now.

But members of congress still shouldn't treat anyone that way - they're not lawyers trying to badger a witness. When cameras are around they want to act "outraged" but they're not fooling anyone - I'm not saying Kashkari is doing a great job but they should at least treat him with respect in public. They were more "outraged" at Kashkari than they were during the hearings about the war in Iraq.

Roy Mustang

Who hasn't been family friends with treasonous communist murderers? I know I launched my political career in the home of the Rosenbergs. I got your back, Obama! It's just guilt by association!

Pagar

The American Thinker has a great article on:

"September 16, 2008
Obama 's Friends and Chicago's New Slums"

And didn't even get into how much Valerie Jarrett and Penny Pritzker contributed to Chicago's new Slums.

kim

Whether deliberately or not, Obama has basically screwed up everything he has touched. Why change now? God help the Republic, and I've little doubt that will happen. The wonders get worked in mysterious ways.
================================

PeterUK

Pofarmer,
Two important pointers.
The way Obama shafted his predecessor to get her job and making public an opponent's divorce files to get his job.
This is a ruthless man with no principles.

PeterUK

kim,
"Whether deliberately or not, Obama has basically screwed up everything he has touched."

There is a particular personality which is so devious that it is incapable of doing things straight.Lies are a matter of course,words mean whatever is expedient,promises are transitory,right and wrong simply opposing narratives,people are dispensable.
Those with this personality are constantly winging it and are thus incapable of making detailed long term plans.they can have objectives which they singlemindedly pursue,but the means are irrelevant.
Oh yes even if you gave them something,they would try to steal it.

Extraneus

Po,

- ties to ACORN

- Fannie/Freddie campaign contributions (I thought he was #2, but opensecrets.org says #3, FEC data as of Jun 30, and I haven't seen anything more recent)

Jason

Blah blah blah Bill Ayers blah blah blah homosexual blah blah blah abortions blah blah blah Real Americans.

No wonder the Republicans lost the election. There are two wars, a financial meltdown, millions of people out of work, ten times as many people without healthcare, and you guys are blathering about nonsense that doesn't mean anything.

Stop being children. Read the Principles of the Republican Party and start acting upon them. If you'd done that for the past six months, we'd have McCain as the President Elect instead of that black guy with "terrifying" ties to some old guy who protested against the Vietnam War. OMG! Call SWAT!

Nobody. Cares.

Jason

And just in case it wasn't clear.

Constant. Bitching. Doesn't. Help.

You can spend the next four years acting like children and doing your damnedest to ruin America: by standing in the way of every initiative, by creating fantasies to demonize everybody who votes differently to yourselves, and by causing so much disruption that nobody gets any work done. Because that's what you seem to be intent on doing right now.

Or you can start behaving like adults and understand that the world isn't Black and White, Right and Wrong, Good and Evil, Us and Them. There is a spectrum of opinions and you can't make everybody happy. However you can work together and attempt to reach a consensus. But yu won't get any satisfaction if you continue to piss and moan when you don't get everything your own way.

It's time for you dolts to try a new tactic. Grow up.

Rick Ballard

New Axelturfing technique - refer to the "principles of the Republican Party" when spinning up as a concern troll.

Apparently rehabilitation of Obama's close relationship with a domestic terrorist isn't proceeding as planned. I wonder what happens when the focus shifts to his racist preacher and the convicted felon who financed the launch of Obama's political career in the home of a domestic terrorist and commie?

Porchlight

You can spend the next four years acting like children and doing your damnedest to ruin America: by standing in the way of every initiative, by creating fantasies to demonize everybody who votes differently to yourselves, and by causing so much disruption that nobody gets any work done.

Translation: don't do as the left did for the past 8 years.

Porchlight

Those with this personality are constantly winging it and are thus incapable of making detailed long term plans.

That's exactly how Obama strikes me, as always winging it. However, he did have the brains to pick a smart, long-term planner like Emanuel who can cover for him. Unfortunately for him there aren't many Rahms around so he's filling out his stable with losers like Jarrett.

Jason

Thanks Rick for clearly demonstrating your immaturity. You ignore the substance, refused to even attempt to find common ground, and you went right back to focusing on the irrelevant. Small minded people like yourself are tearing the Republican party apart. Notice how this year the majority of Republican intellectuals abandoned the Republican party and voted for Obama? It's partly because they're embarrassed to be associated with people like you. They want to fix America. You just want to complain.

RichatUF

You can spend the next four years acting like children and doing your damnedest to ruin America

Unlike the helpful Dem's over the last 8. I'll keep that in mind when the Dems exercise more political power in these next 2 years than the Rep's could muster at any point in the last 12. At least they will have the "loyalty" of the permenent bureaucracy and as Ohio has shown they'll try to keep the subjects in line.


Jane Plumber

Good Morning JOMers. The cruise has ended, it was fab, altho bad news for Clarice, because I won.

Proof will be posted later.

PeterUK

Mr Ballard,
Sssshhhh! It is good to here contrary views on Professor Charles Manso William Ayers,perhaps they are right,perhaps it is of no more consequence the Obama being acquainted with the crook Tony Rezko or the racist Reverend Wright or the paedophile Frank Marshall Davis.Hey would it matter if he palled around with the Gambino family? After all, in the new world of moral equivalence,one friend is as good as another.

kim

Jason, you only think Ayers, Rezko, and Wright are irrelevant because the media ignored them this last election cycle. As a matter of fact, Obama's freely chosen mentors and companions are probably the most relevant information for guidance about how he will proceed from here on. On that evidence, it will be senseless to look for common ground with him. I spit on the ground that Rezko, and Ayers, and Wright walk upon.
========================================

Pofarmer

refused to even attempt to find common ground,

So, assuming one doesn't believe in socialism, bigger govt, and prosecuting the Bush administration. where, exactly, would be this common ground?

They want to fix America.

By voting Socialist? Spreading the wealth around? Really? These were Republican intellectuals? No wonder the 'pubs have some many problems.

kim

Gad, I wish you were the Jason who advised Nancy Boyda.
===================================

Porchlight

Welcome back, Jane! You and the other JOM ladies were missed. I can't wait to see your proof. :)

PeterUK

"Thanks Rick for clearly demonstrating your immaturity."

Reading those words one knows immediately that the author is a wet behind the ears,early post diaper, little snot.
Send trolls on solid food.

Sue

I spit coffee after reading Jason's post. Unbelievable. Truly, unbelievable. After 8 years of demonizing Bush for simply being Republican, this crowd now wants Republicans to play nice with The One. Talk to McCain, Jason. He'll certainly play your game with you.

RichatUF

Rick-

The Axelturfing stink runs strong in Jason. Wonder what SEIU's rate schedule is an Obot now that the election is over?


Sue

Jane,

Welcome back. We want full details as soon as you can get to it.

RichatUF

Jane-

Good Morning JOMers. The cruise has ended, it was fab, altho bad news for Clarice, because I won.

Jane and other cruisers: welcome back!

Sue

Rich,

What is even funnier is wondering if they really think coming here and calling someone names will have an impact on our thinking. ::grin::

PeterUK

Nice to see the SS Babylon "Love Boat" has docked.

Sue

Who cares about Bill Ayers? Shit, we have trillions of dollars heading out of the Treasury.

You should have voted for McCain if you wanted to control spending. It isn't going to happen under a democratic president, a democratic senate and a democratic house. The difference between now and the last 8 years? Your taxes are going to increase.

Rick Ballard

Which Republican principles suggest "sharing common ground" with cheats, liars and thieves? Did I miss a supplement articulating "Living with Liars" or "Cheat and Prosper" or "Steal With Impunity" as way stops on the path to success as a Republican?

Go away, Jason. You aren't equipped for the task - unless generating derision is your purpose in life.

centralcal

Greetings Jane. We will, of course, expect a full report on all the fun had by you and other JOMers on the cruise!

O/T: Anyone see Gateway Pundit - Alan Keyes has filed suit in California for BHO to produce his vault copy of COB. Keyes claims "standing" as a candidate. Does anyone here have any thoughts about this? I was surprised to read that there are currently 8 or 9 suits in different states.

Captain Hate

Another day, another batch of worthless trolls courtesy of Axelrod and the shitty schools the Annenberg challenge foisted on the city of Chicago while Billy Bombthrower and D'ohbammy lined their pockets. We seem to have lost ChaCo and MSimon and gained Jork and Jason Jackoff; what a horrible deal.

Barney Frank

Po,

On item "G" you might inject a short note that he spent $600,000,000 after breaking his explicit pledge to use public financing during the general election.

Sue

Where did Chaco and M Simon go? And why did they leave? And how did I miss it? Or is it just that they haven't been here in the last couple of days?

Jane

Wow! The majority of "republican intellectuals?" Are you sure Jason? I'd love to see the names and numbers.

kim

centralcal, it is up to the discretion of the Supreme Court in the Berg case whether or not they will facilitate handling of this Constitutional question. Given the disastrous result on the polity of an election in 2000 so close that if either candidate had won there would be questions of legitimacy, I find it hard to believe that they will not do what little part they can to ensure the legitimacy of this election.

But, bottom line, I believe Obama was born in Hawaii. It would be nice if he'd validate that.
=========================================

kim

Well, Jane, I haven't read it but I understand that Christine Whitman savaged Sarah Palin in an op-ed yesterday in the WaPo. She should move to Connecticutt.
==============================

kim

I think Charlie is busy and Simon is nursing a grudge against Rick. They'll both be back.
=========================

centralcal

Obama has never been a DOER, but rather a talker speech reader. As he surrounds himself in preparation for the Presidency, one has to wonder how many puppet masters are going to be pulling his strings?

centralcal

Thanks for the info Kim. I didn't realize the Berg case was before the Supreme Court.

Obama doesn't ever seem to have to play by the rules, or obey any laws. What a President for black youths to look up to.

microsyops

Keep working yourselves up. We'll see how the country is in a year or two. I will make a copy of all these comments to review with respect to what actually happens.

Jane

After spending a week with a bunch of republican intellectuals who didn't vote for Obama, I can say what most of them are upbeat, optimistic and looking forward to the next 2 years. I know I am.

kim

microsyops, the physical forces, climate cooling, the economic forces, looming depression, and the political forces, Putin and Ahmadi-Nejad, facing Obama make it almost inevitable that Obama will come a cropper during the next year. All the phony 'hope and change' rhetoric in the world will have zero impact on these forces.

Please, mark my words.
========================================

kim

centralcal, the Supreme Court has not yet decided to take the Berg case. Obama's side has until December 1 to respond to Berg's motion for a Writ of Certiorari for the case to come before them. I'm certainly hoping that the Supreme Court will take the case and rule quickly or barring that, make it clear that it is the duty of the Electoral College to validate the eligibility of the candidates.
==================================

kim

If he was not born in Hawaii, he can still be shut down. I think he was born in Hawaii and is hiding something else he has lied about on his birth certificate.
=============================

PeterUK

Kim,
None of the powerful world leaders give a shit about Obama> Whether it indicates a new multi-racial dawn or he spreads the wealth like peanut butter. All they are concerned about is which way the cat will jump and how they can take advantage of it.
To this end,an analysis of Obama's character is essential.
The first test from Russia will be the missile screen,NOW!

Rick Ballard

There is an endless OODA loop running somewhere.

Rich,

I don't think there is an SEIU hourly minimum for Axelturfers. It's a piece rate job at .00000000001 per pixel.

Captain Hate

I will make a copy of all these comments to review with respect to what actually happens.

Is this what passes for opposition research in Camp Axelrod, where he sends his witless cocksuckers out to pester people prior to being able to hire them into the Obastard Stasi? Knock yourself out, microiq.

MayBee

The world leaders are also jumping on the Obama bandwagon because he's popular with their people. What are they going to do? Lose popularity points by saying anything negative about the man?

kim

Yes, Peter. Why is France against the screen? It's to protect them from Teheran, after all.
============================

PeterUK

"I will make a copy of all these comments to review with respect to what actually happens."

Sorry micrcephalic,your attention span won't run to it.

MayBee

Jane and the Cruisers!
Welcome back. I can't wait for the full report.

kim

Cap'n HaHa, and Rick. It's public service paid at $40/hr. Obama's new domestic service corps is the new Sturmabteilung, and his permanent, secretive, tax-exempt, transition organization is the Schutzstaffel. Those who ignore history are destined to repeat it. Those who don't ignore it still get to repeat it but they at least see what is coming.
=================================

Porchlight

It's a piece rate job at .00000000001 per pixel.

Hmm, I see a tendency toward multiple short posts rather than long ones, so I'd guess a per post rather than per pixel rate.

Seriously, I would like to see the payment scheme. How does one get this gig? I am sure I would be better than microcyclops.

Jim Ryan

There is no seeking common ground with leftists. There isn't enough of it but only these two incompatible value sets. Either regular old liberty, small government, Constitution, and self-reliance win or they lose. There is no other end worth seeking to which "seeking middle ground with the left" is a means. You can't preserve those values by seeking that middle ground.

The country is split between two incompatible ways of life: a totalitarian ideology and regular old American values. Politics is negotiation amongst parties who share a fundamental set of values but disagree on the particulars. There is no politics between the left and conservatives.

Some "conservatives" are publicly announcing that they will compromise with Master and defame their erstwhile colleagues. "If I defame a fellow conservative, Master will like me. It will make me feel that the failure of liberty wasn't my fault but only some other conservatives' fault. That's the ticket, it was Sarah Palin's fault that liberty and small government died. Or neocons. Or anti-fetal stem cell research conservatives. That's why liberty died." They hope for a nice position in the big house, so that they don't have to work the fields. They prefer salvaging their careers to liberty, but they will have neither.

Meanwhile, Liberty will go to the wall and face the guns without flinching. It will not cower, it will not plead, and it will not compromise. Nor will anyone who loves her.

I speak only metaphorically. There won't be any shots fired as she dies.

Rick Ballard

"Why is France against the screen?"

The answer lies in Total's sphere of influence and the location in which it hopes to work. The suckups from L'Ecole Polytechnique always place potential Euro in pocket above public safety. They'll prop the mullahs just like they propped Saddam - and for the same reason$.

Jane

MayBee,

I'm stuck at the Ft Lauderdale airport until 6:30 tonite. I'll leak things out all day.

It really was great - and the JOMers were the best part of a lot of best parts. Wait til you see the pix!

Kim,
France isn't pro -American,Europe is going to make an accommodation with Russia because it thinks,for whatever reason, it is on its own.

Jane, you tease. Real pix or just hokey stuff?

Jane

Real Pix of course. Both Caro and JMH are incredible photographers - hell JMH already posted a bunch of stuff - Fred and Mark Steyn, and a bunch of others. I didn't take one picture because I figured I'd just freeload theirs.

The next cruise is in July and leaves from Rome. I really really really want all of you to go on it. It was truly great.

Sue

Jane,

Where are the pictures posted?

Very clever, Jane. I wanna see photos of you JOMers. I already know what Fred, and Geri, and Mark look like ;)

About that cruise in July - after The One spreads the wealth around, will anyone be able to afford to go? Plus, here in Caleeforneea we have Ahnold poised to raise even more taxes.
