Obama’s Failing War on Reality; it is antipathy to Socialism, Barack

Below is an example of a typical Socialist tactic of personal attack on voters of whom they enjoy no support.

Progressives can’t allow voiced opposition opinion to go un-smeared… after all, voiced opposition opinion is a exclusively privileged leftist entitlement for Public Progressives and their devoted follower bees.

“learn to speak teabag”
an NPR production paid for in part
with taxpayer dollars

Progressive wholesale personalized besmirching
It’s how Progressives have been taught
to deal with opposition.

Progressives’ indulgence in Reality Revisionism and Historical Revisionism as furtive attempts to hide the truth, has never been more glaring and pitiful than in the days following an all out Socialist Massacre in the Massachusetts Special Election that installed a Conservative Republican  as our Senate replacement for Ted Kennedy.

A lightening bolt, perhaps the greatest lightening bolt of modern times, struck Barack Obama and his Progressives nationwide on Wednesday January 19, 2010 as Martha Coakley conceded the election to Scott Brown who won with a 5% margin.

Charles Krauthammer’s post Massachusetts election observations hits the Progressive nail on the head on many, but not all, counts (bold emphasis mine):

What Scott Brown’s win means for the Democrats

By Charles Krauthammer
Friday, January 22, 2010

After Coakley’s defeat, Obama pretended that the real cause was a generalized anger and frustration “not just because of what’s happened in the last year or two years, but what’s happened over the last eight years.”

Let’s get this straight: The antipathy to George W. Bush is so enduring and powerful that . . . it just elected a Republican senator in Massachusetts? Why, the man is omnipotent.

And the Democrats are delusional: Scott Brown won by running against Obama, not Bush. He won by brilliantly nationalizing the race, running hard against the Obama agenda, most notably Obamacare. Killing it was his No. 1 campaign promise.

Bull’s-eye. An astonishing 56 percent of Massachusetts voters, according to a Rasmussen poll, called health care their top issue. In a Fabrizio, McLaughlin & Associates poll, 78 percent of Brown voters said their vote was intended to stop Obamacare. Only a quarter of all voters in the Rasmussen poll cited the economy as their top issue, nicely refuting the Democratic view that Massachusetts was just the usual anti-incumbent resentment you expect in bad economic times.

Brown ran on a very specific, very clear agenda. Stop health care. Don’t Mirandize terrorists. Don’t raise taxes; cut them. And no more secret backroom deals with special interests.

While the intonation of Charles’ essay is that of giving a degree of  benefit of the doubt as to lack deliberative progressive propaganda strategies vs actual liberal delusional confusion, I think it is quite clear that the Public Socialists knew full well why they were going to loose …before the election …during the election …and after the election.

Thus I contend, the reason for delusional appearing behavior by both Barack Obama and Nancy Pelosi after the Coakley defeat is not a matter of the Socialists “not getting it,” quite the contrary.

Obama & Pelosi totally “got it,” right down to the last scrap of nuance.

The seemingly clueless reactions of Obama and Pelosi are indeed deliberate well considered (albeit desperate) Progressive fallbacks to spin-pivot Reality to deliberately mislead and misinform the American Public; a calculated redefinition of reality to regain that which they can not regain: long gone credibility and the smiley face that was so cleverly applied to the spectre of Socialism.

The Majority of American voters are correctly informed and highly motivated Anti-Socialists who’s ranks include majority numbers of  Independents and  Republicans and a growing minority of Democrats.

The Reality is: Socialism is a scourge on this country and that is why I and my fellow Massachusetts voters canceled their lipstick-laden Socialism like a postage stamp.

To the Progressives/Socialists, this is a war of propaganda, i.e. lies, to make palatable the Socialist medicine they are hell bent on feeding the United States.

The Progressives can not hope to win a single election if the electorate is fully aware of the pitfalls of Socialism and the advantages of Capitalism, thus they glorify mass murderer Che Guevara with trendy tee-shirts and mass murderer Mao Tse-Tung with quaint hats and glorify dictators like Fidel and Chavez via their nationwide network of university faculty communist operatives and now even in K through 12 nationwide and in the media.

Charles Krauthammer summed up quite well (emphasis not mine):

Democratic cocooners will tell themselves that Coakley was a terrible candidate who even managed to diss Curt Schilling. True, Brown had Schilling. But Coakley had Obama. When the bloody sock beats the presidential seal — of a man who had them swooning only a year ago — something is going on beyond personality.

That something is substance — political ideas and legislative agendas. Democrats, if they wish, can write off their Massachusetts humiliation to high unemployment, to Coakley or, the current favorite among sophisticates, to generalized anger. That implies an inchoate, unthinking lashing-out at whoever happens to be in power — even at your liberal betters who are forcing on you an agenda that you can’t even see is in your own interest.

Democrats must so rationalize, otherwise they must take democracy seriously, and ask themselves: If the people really don’t want it, could they possibly have a point?

“If you lose Massachusetts and that’s not a wake-up call,” said moderate — and sentient — Democratic Sen. Evan Bayh of Indiana, “there’s no hope of waking up.”

    haha VF. I saw that teabag vid the other day and I think it is hysterical. I found this about the cartoonist:

    01.10.10 – 4:26 PM
    Cartoonist Receives Death Threats Over “Learn to Speak Teabag”
    by Mark Fiore

    Cartoonist Mark Fiore writing on on his blog:

    The death threats keep coming this fine morning. I guess the Tea Party crew is determined to have “death panels” one way or another. The dustup started because of this cartoon:
    “Learn to Speak Tea Bag” ran on my usual client sites, including NPR, which really set off the guys over here, here (note Condi giving child flowers down by “donate” button), here, here and here. Before you could say, “due to a pre-existing condition, your health coverage has been denied,” there was a full-fledged viral campaign by right-wing media outlets and blogs to jump, scream and shout about this animation. Which, to me, is just great!
    I say that not because I get some thrill out of receiving emails that are in all capital letters or have more exclamation points than letters in the alphabet, I say that because one of the most important functions of a political cartoon, or political animation, is to foster a discussion. With thousands of comments posted, loads of emails and tweets, discussion was definitely fostered, and then some. It’s the “then some” that worries me.

    Of course discussion on the web is not known for its civility, but it finally dawned on me the strangeness of receiving death threats at the same time a crazed Somali extremist tried to kill cartoonist Kurt Westergaard.

    Muslim extremist, meet Tea Party extremist. Tea Party extremist, meet Muslim extremist.

    That is not to say all people who associate with the Tea Party movement are killers, just as not all Muslims from Somalia are killers. I have very good friends from Somalia, and I have wonderful relatives in Idaho who are pro-gun, anti-government conservatives.

    People in this world, my dear Tea Baggers, are not always categorized into easy boxes of Left vs. Right, Socialist vs. Patriot.

    As a matter of fact, I myself am a left-leaning, pro-gay-marriage San Franciscan, Catholic, anti-Bush, anti-Nader guy who guts his own fish, has cut down trees with a chain saw and took political science classes with Mary Cheney. Is your head imploding yet?

    Surprisingly, one of the aspects of the animation that seems to really enrage the Tea Party set is the term “Tea Bag.” Their claim is that the cartoon uses “bag” instead of “party” in order to take a cheap sexual shot at the Tea Party patriots. You can do your own research on the alternative meaning of “tea bag,” I won’t link to anything here. Oh, except maybe I should link to some Tea Whatever sites that use the very term that appalls them so. Here a bag, there a bag, everywhere a bag bag! (Too bad the sexual angle eliminates any discussion of why the Tea Party crew thinks attempting to reform a disastrous health care system amounts to Socialism, Fascism, Nazism, etc.)

    Another aspect of the rabid criticism is that NPR, an organization living high on the hog thanks to the mother’s milk of government (animal metaphors, all around!), should not be funding my anti-Tea Bagger cartoons with taxpayer money. But alas, NPR does most of its villainous work using sponsorship, pledge drives and good ol’ fashioned Capitalism! According to the NPR site, a tiny one to two percent of their yearly funding comes via grants from crazed Socialist organizations like the National Science Foundation, CPB and (gasp!) the NEA. After all is said and done, the amount of taxpayer money that changed hands because NPR posted “Learn to Speak Tea Bag” was about, um . . . two-dollars and twenty-five cents. If you want to dig deeper into NPR’s financial statements, they are publicly available here.

    If that sort of taxpayer funding bothers you, you definitely should avoid any taxpayer-funded city streets, return your government-sponsored digital converter box and avoid doing business with any bank that owes its existence to a taxpayer bailout.

    To all of you who have written emails and comments, I really wish I could respond to every one of you. I truly appreciate your taking the time to write, even if we may be on different sides of the political fence. If there is one thing that my politically mixed San Francisco/Idaho background has taught me, it is benefit of continuing a discussion even if you don’t agree. Too often these days, the Left and the Right immediately shut down if you are deemed to be from the opposing camp. Here’s to good discussion even if we don’t agree.

    Now please don’t kill me :-)

    I’ve investigated the indoctrination of our children and the Progressives (Communists) have been doing this for over a hundred years. One of my blogposts is on the teachers unions. That was the original intent of the teachers unions. Change history so they can try the take over again. It failed with Wilson, FDR almost got it all, but the wheel was slowed until the anointment of Obutthole. When the Communists… I mean Progressive finally got full power, they tried to ram it down our throats. They think “We The People” are too stupid to know what’s good for us.

    I for one am glad the American people have awakened and see the Progressives for the SCUMBAGGERS they are.

    great comment , Foxwood

    The Progressives fell ass first into a monstrous rattlesnake den when they took majority power and started marching America into communism…

    Americans came alive like their hair is on fire…

    the butt kicking is just getting started… watch the political blood flow like a river as a result of voter rejection of socialism in the coming mid-term elections.

    and no I will not feel an ounce of sympathy for the socialists… they earned it…

    150,000 dead in Haiti.

    Such a sad state of affairs and yet it makes me think of the libs who are for population control and I wonder if this event brings them some kind of hidden joy.

  38. samiam60 says:

    PORT-AU-PRINCE, Haiti — The confirmed death toll from Haiti’s devastating earthquake has topped 150,000 in the Port-au-Prince metropolitan area alone, the communications minister said Sunday, with many more thousands dead around the country or still buried under the rubble.

    Communications minister Marie-Laurence Jocelyn Lassegue told The Associated Press that the figure is based on a body count in the capital and outlying areas by CNE, a state company that has been collecting corpses and burying them in a mass grave north of Port-au-Prince. It does not include other affected cities such as Jacmel, where thousands are believed dead, nor does it account for bodies burned by relatives.

    SLIDESHOW: Devastation in Haiti | HOW TO HELP | FULL COVERAGE

    The United Nations said Saturday the government had confirmed 111,481 bodies; all told, authorities have estimated 200,000 dead from the magnitude-7.0 quake, according to Haitian government figures cited by the European Commission.

    “Nobody knows how many bodies are buried in the rubble — 200,000, 300,000?” Lassegue said. “Who knows the overall death toll?”

    Experts say chances are slim that more survivors will be found in that debris, although rescuers pulled a man buried for 11 days in the wreckage on Saturday.

    Crews dug a tunnel through the rubble of a fruit and vegetable shop to reach Wismond Exantus, who is in his 20s. He was placed on a stretcher and given intravenous fluids as onlookers cheered, and later told the AP he survived by diving under a desk during the quake and later consuming some cola, beer and cookies in the cramped space.

    Exantus was recuperating well at a Port-au-Prince hospital on Sunday, said Ernso Jean Pierre, the man’s brother: “He’s eating, he’s talking, he’s normal.”

    Haiti’s government has declared an end to searches for living people trapped under debris, and officials are shifting their focus to caring for the thousands of survivors living in squalid, makeshift camps.

    U.N. relief workers said the shift is critical: While deliveries of food, medicine and water have ticked up after initial logjams, the need continues to be overwhelming and doctors fear outbreaks of disease in the camps.

    In the notorious slum of Cite Soleil, the site of some looting and violence since the quake, U.S. and Brazilian soldiers handed out food and water Sunday morning to thousands of men, women and children who lined up at a health center.

    The U.S. soldiers brought 2,000 food rations, 75,000 high-energy biscuits and 9,000 bottles of water, while the Brazilians had 8 tons of food in small bags of uncooked beans, salt, sugar and sardines, as well as 15,000 liters of water.

    Lunie Marcelin, 57, said her entire family — including six grown children who live with her — survived the quake, but they had no money to buy food.

    The handouts “will help us, but it is not enough,” she said. “We need more.”

    In the United States, organizers of the all-star “Hope for Haiti Now” telethon said Saturday that the event raised $57 million — and counting. The two-hour telethon aired Friday night and was also streamed live online. Stars such as Brad Pitt, Beyonce, Madonna, Bruce Springsteen and more used their presence to encourage donations for Haiti.

    As many as 200,000 people have fled Port-au-Prince, a city of 2 million, according to the U.S. Agency for International Development. About 609,000 people are homeless in the capital’s metro area, and the United Nations estimates that up to 1 million could leave Haiti’s destroyed cities for rural areas already struggling with extreme poverty.

    The U.S. Geological Survey said Sunday it has recorded 52 aftershocks of magnitude 4.5 or greater since the Jan. 12 quake.

    sami, far from a miracle, the Brown win is simply a “correction.” The Dems got elected in 2008 on a wave that snowballed into a tsunami(sorry for mixing metaphors).
    Once the water subsided, it became apparent that a mop up was in order. No tsunami keeps building forever; it eventually crests, does it’s damage and everything is cleaned up until the next big wave starts to rise in the distance. The cycle continues….

    When money from different sources are co-mingled… one can not say the tea bag vid was funded with little to no tax payer funds.

    The world population is the total number of living humans on Earth at a given time. As of 24 January 2010, the Earth’s population is estimated by the United States Census Bureau to be 6,798,300,000.[1] The world population has been growing continuously since the end of the Black Death around 1400.[2] The fastest rates of world population growth (above 1.8%) were seen briefly during the 1950s then for a longer period during the 1960s and 1970s (see graph). The 2008 rate of growth has almost halved since its peak of 2.2% per year, which was reached in 1963. World births have levelled off at about 134 million per year, since their peak at 163 million in the late 1990s, and are expected to remain constant. However, deaths are only around 57 million per year, and are expected to increase to 90 million by the year 2050. Because births outnumber deaths, the world’s population is expected to reach 9 billion in 2040.[3][4]

    sami said: Such a sad state of affairs and yet it makes me think of the libs who are for population control and I wonder if this event brings them some kind of hidden joy.

    Wiki…

    It’s editable. Not a citable source.

  46. Foxwood says:

    http://www.google.com/search?hl=en&q=learn+to+speak+tea+bag+npr+funded&start=10&sa=N

    Lots of blogs that state it’s funded by taxpayer money. Blogs aren’t citable either, but…

  47. Foxwood says:

    I sure do let the air out of balloons…

  48. rosehips says:

    foxy, right about wiki but it is often most convenient.

    VF, I did cite the npr ombudsman article that states that roughly 2% of funding comes from gov’t grants. That is why I said “little to none” The actual vid probably didn’t have gov’t funding but airing it on pbs does qualify it as being partially, albeit miniscule, funded with taxes.

    vf said: for Rosehips:

    This is a citation:

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/National_Public_Radiohttp://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/National_Public_Radio

    According to the citation NPR receives Government funding, among other funding sources.

    When money from different sources are co-mingled… one can not say the tea bag vid was funded with little to no tax payer funds.

  49. Foxwood says:

    Just by default anything NPR is taxpayer funded.

  50. rosehips says:

    foxy, no air released yet foxy. not from this balloon. I realize that some of the films that pbs airs are funded by taxpayers and some of their budget might come indirectly from taxes, but I believe the ombudsman for npr who stated above that only about 2% of their funding comes directly from taxes.

  51. rosehips says:

    foxy, lol. Yes I know you have a default button on your brain. It’s what makes you repeat yourself so much. hahaahaaa

  64. Hey ya’ll I have a funny story to tell you and a confession, involving James Brown. Ok, I used to love to watch PeeWee Herman on Saturday mornings (confession), you know his program, PeeWees Play house. Anyway, he had the best guests on there and one time it was James Brown and it was a Christmas Special I actually recorded it and watch it at Christmas time, it’s so stinking funny! haahah

    All of his guests bring him a fruit cake! haah You either love ‘em or hate ‘em. Nevertheless, he used them as bricks and built an addition onto the playhouse (made out of fruit cakes). Isn’t that hilarious? ahahahah

    Ok, back to James Brown, James Brown and Pee Wee were ice skating (well they had this professional on pretending to be PeeWee)and they put ice skates on James Brown.

    Well, James Brown was slipping and sliding and in that sorta queer voice of his, he said, “If God had wanted him to ice skate, he would have given James Brown, a skinny head and big feet!”

    it was hysterical! I guess you had to be there.

    Also, he had great artists on his shows always, every Saturday and the Christmas special too, like Zsa Zsa Gagor, Grace Kelly, The King of Cartoons (William Horace Marshall) Cyndi Lauper, Franki Avalon, Annette Funicello, Kady Lane, Dinah Shore sang a song once it was so funny

  71. Foxwood says:

    Winona Ryder got her name from this group.

  72. ok, funs over back to the issues:

    What the Progressive Left lives

    They believe that when a white skinhead threatens a black man, it is a sign of a vast racist conspiracy; but that when paramilitary-garbed New Black Panthers with a weapon, spouting racial epithets, stand right in front of a polling place, it is no violation of civil rights at all — even after a judge has already moved to issue a default judgment against the Panthers. They believe that blacks are suffering racial discrimination when black voters themselves choose to hold non-partisan elections. They believe white firefighters can be denied promotions specifically because they are white, and that Asian students can be denied admission to college because they aren’t black, but that black students who want to attend racially integrated private schools should be sent back to de facto segregated public schools in the name of “fairness.”

    The Left thinks it is good diplomacy to insult our allies while kowtowing to our enemies and bowing to problematic rivals. They tried everything in their power to stop Ronald Reagan’s Cold War policies and yet now claim to have been part of a decades-long, bipartisan consensus on Cold War efforts. They think Afghanistan is a “war of necessity” until they are in charge of it, after which it becomes a war that must be stopped, one that was inherited from bad Republicans. They oppose missile defense because they say it will never work, and then when it works they oppose it anyway. They think that American imperialists are worse than foreign Communists. They think American servicemen should be prosecuted for (allegedly) punching a jihadist-terrorist in the stomach while capturing him — and in a military court, without civilian due process rights — but that foreign terrorist suspects are too good for military justice and instead deserve Miranda rights and other domestic American civil rights.

    They support jail sentences for mere paperwork violations of environmental laws, even of foreign environmental laws or regulations, but they think even violent criminals should be let free if police make unintentional mistakes in paperwork or procedure.

    They also think it is dangerous to the point of being an existential threat for ordinary citizens to challenge office-holders at town hall meetings, but perfectly okay for those same powerful office-holders to call their critics “un-American.” They believe in the secret ballot for Mexicans, but not for American workers who are considering unionization. They say, against all evidence, that far more ballots are kept from being cast due to utterly unspecified “intimidation” than are cast fraudulently in the names of people who actually go nowhere near the polls, of dead people, and even of pet dogs …and of dead pet fish!!!

    from aggresive fruit again.

    Blogwood, why did you do it to me?

    Black Lassie (Featuring Johnnie Stash)
    by Cheech & Chong
    1974

    Hi, I’m Johnny Stash
    And I’m here to sing about
    A great American dog
    Black Lassie

    Hit it, Carl

    She was born in the Detroit ghetto
    During the riots of ’65
    Her daddy was a big fat alley rat
    But he could lick a dog twice his size

    Her mama was
    A long legged Afghan
    And she came from the
    High class part of town

    But late at night
    When the moon got bright
    Her and the rat
    Really went to town

    Black Lassie, fat and sassy
    She started poor, aw
    But now she’s rich

    She’s the queen
    Of the doggy world

    Top40db: The most accurate lyrics site on the net.

    Black Lassie is a ghetto
    (Sssh, don’t you say it)
    But I’m talking about Black Lassie

    Now I want everybody to listen
    While Carl plays with his wa-wa

    That was Carl and his wa-wa
    Thank you very much, Carl
    That’s just fine

    You can stop now, Carl
    Carl, you can stop now
    Gimme that wa-wa, Carl

    Don’t you ever try to play when I’m
    Singing about a great American dog

    Black Lassie, fat and sassy
    She started poor, aw
    But now she’s rich

    She’s the queen of
    All the doggys in the world
    Because Black Lassie
    She’s a ghetto
    (Sssh, don’t you say it)
    But I’m talking about Black Lassie

    A great American
    Half dog, half rat
    Don’t mess with her
    Because she’a a real (shut up)

    Aw, shut up, yourself
    I wasn’t gonna say bitch
    I’m talking about Black Lassie

    I can just see little Timmy now
    Standing in front of that liquor store
    Calling his dog

    Here, Black Lassie
    Here, Black Lassie
    Come over here, girl
    Get out that trashcan
    And come over here

    Woo, you stink, where you been
    In that store, playing with men again
    Come over here, girl
    I got a cheeseburger for you

    That’s right, sit up
    Aw, that’s a good girl
    Aw, God, you’re ugly
    Those beady eyes
    But I love you, girl

    Speak for me, girl
    Speak for me
    I love you

    Hit me with your best song, Todd

    wg, wow girl! I’ve never seen you so talkative! Are you stoned? hahaha

    I have never seen Pee Wee’s Playhouse but I’ve heard of it lots and now that you describe it, I can see why it was so popular. That guy is so warped that I guess he is endearing. haha at least he was until, you know, the incident. heehee

    I’ve mentioned on this blog before that Cheech and Chong was my very first concert when I was about 13 or 14. We were in the second row and I could have almost reached over and pulled Cheech’s tutu right offa him. The special effect reefer smoke was enough to send me to rehab. lol

    love the agressive fruit manifesto. So succinct!

    hey great to see you. Come back soon, ya hear?

  87. Blogwood said, “She caught me in the bathroom with a pair of panty hose.”

    Let It Bleed Lyrics
    The Rolling Stones

    Well, we all need someone we can lean on
    And if you want it, you can lean on me
    Yeah, we all need someone we can lean on
    And if you want it, you can lean on me

    She said, “My breasts, they will always be open
    Baby, you can rest your weary head right on me
    And there will always be a space in my parking lot
    When you need a little coke and sympathy”

    Yeah, we all need someone we can dream on
    And if you want it, baby, well you can dream on me
    Yeah, we all need someone we can cream on
    And if you want to, well you can cream on me

    I was dreaming of a steel guitar engagement
    When you drunk my health in scented jasmine tea
    But you knifed me in my dirty filthy basement
    With that jaded, faded, junky nurse
    Oh what pleasant company

    We all need someone we can feed on
    And if you want it, well you can feed on me
    Take my arm, take my leg, oh baby don’t you take my head?

    Yeah, we all need someone we can bleed on
    Yeah, and if you want it, baby, well you can bleed on me
    Yeah, we all need someone we can bleed on
    Yeah, yeah, and if you want it, baby, why don’cha bleed on me
    All over

    Ahh, bleed it alright, bleed it alright, bleed it alright
    You can bleed all over me
    bleed it alright, bleed it alright, bleed it alright
    You can cum all over me

  89. Hey rosie! hahahaahah, It’s much easier to be talkative about fun stuff than REALITY! HAHAHAHAH I gotta go, but it sure was fun.

    My mom used to call this the ganggreen hour; dinner, baths, homework, laundry, kids to bed, etc. it sucks! hahaha I know I’ll actually miss it one day, just not now.

  90. Foxwood says:

    Let it Bleed was the Rolling Stones answer to the Beatles Let It Be.

    Sweet Home Alabama
    Lynyrd Skynyrd

    I miss Alabamy once again
    And I think its a sin, yes

    Well I heard mister Young sing about her
    Well, I heard ole Neil put her down
    Well, I hope Neil Young will remember
    A Southern man don’t need him around anyhow

    Sweet home Alabama
    Where the skies are so blue
    Sweet Home Alabama
    Lord, I’m coming home to you

    In Birmingham they love the governor
    Now we all did what we could do
    Now Watergate does not bother me
    Does your conscience bother you?
    Tell the truth

    Sweet home Alabama
    Where the skies are so blue
    Sweet Home Alabama
    Lord, I’m coming home to you
    Here I come Alabama

    Now Muscle Shoals has got the Swampers
    And they’ve been known to pick a song or two
    Lord they get me off so much
    They pick me up when I’m feeling blue
    Now how about you?

    Sweet home Alabama
    Where the skies are so blue
    Sweet Home Alabama
    Lord, I’m coming home to you

    Sweet home Alabama
    Oh sweet home baby
    Where the skies are so blue
    And the governor’s true
    Sweet Home Alabama
    Lordy
    Lord, I’m coming home to you
    Yea, yea Montgomery’s got the answer

  114. tellitlikeitis says:

    You know if it wasn’t for Ted Kennedys unfortunate demise from brain cancer there would not have been a specieal elections in Mass. and Scott Brown would not be the new senator from Mass. I believe even in the current political climate Kennedy would have been reelected. You have to ask yourself was Kennedy’s death a blessing in disguise. I welcome all comments and points of view from my friends. Just some food for thought.

  115. Gosh, I love her. She is so pretty and so talented!

  116. Foxwood says:

    Yes. Teddy Kennedy’s legacy was killed by his death.

  117. Blogwood said, Yes. Teddy Kennedy’s legacy was killed by his death…..No pun intended…

    oh btw foxy, when I was coming home from Canada last night listening to the CBC, they played Poke Salad Annie on the radio! I was so excited.

    If I had stayed up there overnight like I originally planned, I could have seen the Olympic torch go through town today. dang.

    Did I ever tell you guys about the time I conspired to steal the Olympic torch when it was on its way down to LA? Hahaha We were driving through a town just when the torch was in town. I thought it would be a great “prank” to drive by and swipe it from the runner. heehee. It was just for a gag but I realized my family back home would be shamed so I let my great idea mellow and slowly fade away. Shoot, my 15 mins of fame slipped away from my grips when I came to my senses.

  138. Blogwood,the music connaisseur, very nice.

  139. rosehips says:

    and I am also a fan of Procol Harem. I have a story about them too, but I will save it for another day. I’ve prolly already told it anyway.

  140. Foxwood says:

    Conquistador
    Procol Harum

    Conquistador, your stallion stands

    In need of company

    And like some angel’s haloed brow

    You reek of purity

    I see your armor-plated breast

    Has long-since lost its sheen

    And in your death-masked face

    There are no signs which can be seen

    And though I hope for something to find

    I can see no place to unwind

    Conquistador, a vulture sits

    Upon your silver shield

    And in your rusty scabbard now

    The sand has taken seed

    And though your jewel-encrusted blade

    Has not been plundered still

    The sea has washed across your face

    And taken of its fill

    And though I hope for something to find

    I can see no place to unwind

    Conquistador, there is no time

    I must pay my respect

    And though I came to jeer at you

    I leave now with regret

    And as the gloom begins to fall

    I see there is no, only all

    And though you came with sword held high

    You did not conquer, only die

    And though I hope for something to find

    I can see no place to unwind

    Though I hope for, something to find

    I can see no place to unwind

  141. tellitlikeitis says:

  142. Oh, tellit, is that for me? Of my days gone by? hahahah

  143. tellitlikeitis says:

  144. Foxwood says:

    Some early YES…

  145. rosehips says:

    well now I have to show the vid. This version is by Tony Joe White (he wrote it right?) and Johnny Cash. Sounds like a fun duet (I’m listening to it right now.)

  146. Wow, rosehips if you had been successful you might have ended up in prision, or the white coats could hav e come to get you, or you could have been tackled and hurt. Girl, it is a good thing you can to your senses.

    Gee whiz, I’m afraid if an idea like that had come to my mind in my younger days I would have definately acted on it. whew, scary thought.

  147. Foxwood says:

    I see cushions! I see cushions!

  150. rosehips says:

    wg, you are a hoot. I bet you used to be fun in your younger days. haha
    marriage and motherhood sure mellow one eh?

    some of us get a second childhood, haha. Maybe you will too although you seem to be having fun today, no? lol

  151. rosehips says:

    yeah wg, I’d be getting released about now and they’d give me one more day of fame and then I’d be faced with the task of looking for work (lacking all the skills of the last 25 years) with a resume that shows that for the last two and a half decades I worked making license plates in California. haha

  169. Oh Rose, yes my brother is 49 and single, he’s been married twice but not in like the last decade and no girl friends he usually gravitated toward really crummy women that were psycho or psycho and took him for everything. He finally straigtened out and left the women alone, for the most part! haha

    But now, he’s met a girl and I love her. I actually told him if he messed up with her we’d throw him overboard and keep her. We meet at Rosemary Beach every year and I can’t wait. This year all three of my brothers will be able to come and me and my brood, my father lives with me/us. My mom died and I got my dad in here and am fighting the women off! hahahaah

    Not really but sort of (on my dad). My dad was/is a very good catch. Sweet, Smart, kind, good looking, etc. He needs to stay single and play the field and enjoy himself. One brother lives in Oregon, one in Wyoming and one in Tennessee, so my dad travels and fly fishes and hunts, etc. If he gets tied down he won’t be able to do that, besides my mom is the only woman he really loved.

    Is David Axelrod Dishonest?
    by Turing

    Sun Jan 24, 2010 at 09:26:10 AM PST

    I listened carefully this morning to David Axelrod’s discussion on ABC of the “lessons” that the Obama Administration has learned from Massachusetts. One lesson he said they’d learned is that “people don’t want us to walk away from health care.” Which is surprising, because I had been under the impression that one of the main things we learned from the debacle was that people hate our current approach to health care reform. This is not so, says Axelrod. Au contraire, “the bill that the House and Senate passed were patterned in many ways on the Massachusetts health care plan,” and 68% of the people who voted said they favored the Massachusetts plan. When I heard that, I thought: this guy Axelrod is going beyond spin. He’s downright dishonest, if only with himself.

    * Turing’s diary :: ::
    *

    One of the great disasters of the current health care reform is that it will leave several of the most loyal Democratic electorates in the nation–Massachusetts being only one–WORSE OFF THAN BEFORE. Massachusetts is worse off because its current plan covers 97% of its residents, and the new plan would not do nearly as well and would cost even more. Governor Howard Dean has eloquently argued that the current “reform” will leave the people in his own state of Vermont WORSE OFF than they are now with the nearly universal coverage that was passed during Dean’s tenure. Out here in San Francisco where I live, we have what is called “Healthy San Francisco” which ensures that even the poorest of the poor can obtain any needed health care services. This program would simply disappear under the new reform.

    David Axelrod says that people are disparaging the bill only because they don’t know what’s in it. He says:

    The underlying elements [of the bill] are popular and important, and people will never know what’s in that bill until we pass it, the president signs it, and they have a whole range of new protections that they never had before.

    In other words, stop carping, trust us, you’ll love it.

    Well, Mr. Axelrod, what about the polls that show that public disapproval of Obama’s policies are rising steeply? Ah, said Axelrod:

    When the president walked in the door he was handed the worst economy since the Great Depression.

    Axelrod shared some of the sage advice he had given Obama when he first came into office. He said he told the new president that his numbers were not going to look nearly as good in a year due to the economic catastrophe he was inheriting. Again the honesty question.

    It’s true that there are some very striking comparisons between Obama and FDR. We read that

    Mr. Roosevelt swept into office as an enormously popular figure whom voters had entrusted to rescue them from a financial catastrophe that some worried could threaten America’s democracy. By the time Mr. Roosevelt took office in March, 1933, many of the nation’s banks were on the verge of collapse or shut down.

    But what Mr. Axelrod seems unfamiliar with is the subsequent trajectory of FDR’s popularity as he proposed and then enacted his New Deal. His popularity soared and within a year was at 80%. How come FDR was adored and Obama is increasingly reviled? Let me suggest a few points for Mr. Axelrod to ponder before he gives the president his next round of advice.

    The first point is tactical. We read:

    Mr. Roosevelt, like Ronald Reagan a half-century later, figured out how to go over the heads of Congress and appeal directly to the public.

    President Obama’s enormous popularity gave him a chance to do this as well, but he unfortunately surrounded himself with hacks like Axelrod and Emmanuel and tringulated instead toward some mythical centerground.

    FDR in his first inaugural address proclaimed:

    Practices of the unscrupulous money changers stand indicted in the court of public opinion, rejected by the hearts and minds of men…The money changers have fled from their high seats in the temple of our civilization.

    Axelrod offered this pale substitute this morning: “This president is never going to stop pushing back against special interests.”

    Upon election FDR showed that he meant business about the money changers in the temple:

    FDR’s immediate task upon his inauguration was to stabilize the nation’s banking system. On March 6, Roosevelt declared a national ‘bank holiday’ to end a run by depositors seeking to withdraw their money from faltering banks. FDR also called Congress into emergency session where the legislature enacted, nearly sight unseen, the President’s banking proposal. Under this plan, the federal government would inspect all banks, re-open those that were sufficiently solvent, re-organize those that could be saved adn close those that were beyond repair.

    Obama’s response was different. His first act, effectively, was to approve a direct $787 billion taxpayer bailout of the banks. Axelrod said Obama had to do it to avoid another Great Depression. But what is really depressing is to look at the difference between what happened to the economy after FDR’s emergency bank legislation and what happened to the economy after Obama’s huge bailout. In 1934 the American economy almost immediately began a long-term recovery from the depression. In 2009 after the bailout the American economy continued to sputter along.

    We love Obama, if only he could let out his inner FDR. We thought he was going to be a champion of the middle class and the oppressed, but it appears instead he has become captive to hack political advisers who have forgotten the lessons of history and the ways that a president can use tremendous popularity to gain even more popularity as a champion of the people.

    Obama Administration Steers Lucrative No-Bid Contract for Afghan Work to Dem Donor

    By James Rosen

    – FOXNews.com

    The Obama administration this month awarded a $25 million federal contract for work in Afghanistan to a company owned by a prominent Democratic campaign contributor without entertaining competitive bids, Fox News has learned.

  221. samiam60 says:

    Despite President Obama’s long history of criticizing the Bush administration for “sweetheart deals” with favored contractors, the Obama administration this month awarded a $25 million federal contract for work in Afghanistan to a company owned by a Democratic campaign contributor without entertaining competitive bids, Fox News has learned.

    The contract, awarded on Jan. 4 to Checchi & Company Consulting, Inc., a Washington-based firm owned by economist and Democratic donor Vincent V. Checchi, will pay the firm $24,673,427 to provide “rule of law stabilization services” in war-torn Afghanistan.

    A synopsis of the contract published on the USAID Web site says Checchi & Company will “train the next generation of legal professionals” throughout the Afghan provinces and thereby “develop the capacity of Afghanistan’s justice system to be accessible, reliable, and fair.”

    The legality of the arrangement as a “sole source,” or no-bid, contract was made possible by virtue of a waiver signed by the USAID administrator. “They cancelled the open bid on this when they came to power earlier this year,” a source familiar with the federal contracting process told Fox News.

    “That’s kind of weird,” said another source, who has worked on “rule of law” issues in both Afghanistan and Iraq, about the no-bid contract to Checchi & Company. “There’s lots of companies and non-governmental organizations that do this sort of work.”

    Contacted by Fox News, Checchi confirmed that his company had indeed received the nearly $25 million contract but declined to say why it had been awarded on a no-bid basis, referring a reporter to USAID.

    Asked if he or his firm had been aware that the contract was awarded without competitive bids, Checchi replied: “After it was awarded to us, sure. Before, we had no idea.”

    He declined to answer further questions, however, and again referred Fox News to USAID, saying: “I don’t want to speak for the U.S. government.”

    Asked about the contract, USAID Acting Press Director Harry Edwards at first suggested his office would be too “busy” to comment on it. “I’ll tell it to the people in Haiti,” Edwards snapped when a Fox News reporter indicated the story would soon be made public. The USAID press office did not respond further.

    Rep. Darryl Issa, R-Calif., the ranking Republican on the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee, said Fox News’ reporting on the no-bid contract in this case “disturbed” him.

    Issa has written to USAID Administrator Rajiv Shah requesting that the agency “produce all documents related to the Checchi contract” on or before Feb. 5. Citing the waiver that enabled USAID to award the contract on a no-bid basis, Issa noted that the exemption was intended to speed up the provision of services in a crisis environment.

    Yet “on its face,” wrote Issa to Shah, “the consulting contract awarded to Checchi to support the Afghan justice system does not appear to be so urgent or attendant to an immediate need so as to justify such a waiver.”

    Corporate rivals of Checchi were reluctant to speak on the record about the no-bid contract awarded to his firm because they feared possible retribution by the Obama administration in the awarding of future contracts.

    “We don’t want to be blackballed,” said the managing partner of a consulting firm that has won similar contracts. “You’ve got to be careful. We’re dealing here with people and offices that we depend on for our business.”

    Still, the rival executive confirmed that open bidding on USAID’s lucrative Afghanistan “rule of law” contract was abruptly revoked by the agency earlier this year.

    “It’s a mystery to us,” the managing partner said. “We were going to bid on it. The solicitation (for bids) got pulled back, and we do not know why. We may never know why. These are things that we, as companies doing business with the government, have to put up with.”

    As a candidate for president in 2008, then-Sen. Obama frequently derided the Bush administration for the awarding of federal contracts without competitive bidding.

    “I will finally end the abuse of no-bid contracts once and for all,” the senator told a Grand Rapids audience on Oct. 2. “The days of sweetheart deals for Halliburton will be over when I’m in the White House.”

    Those remarks echoed an earlier occasion, during a candidates’ debate in Austin, Texas on Feb. 21, when Mr. Obama vowed to upgrade the government’s online databases listing federal contracts.

    “If (the American people) see a bridge to nowhere being built, they know where it’s going and who sponsored it,” he said to audience laughter, “and if they see a no-bid contract going to Halliburton, they can check that out too.”

    Less than two months after he was sworn into office, President Obama signed a memorandum that he claimed would “dramatically reform the way we do business on contracts across the entire government.”

    Flanked by aides and lawmakers at the Dwight D. Eisenhower Executive Office Building on March 4, Obama vowed to “end unnecessary no-bid and cost-plus contracts,” adding: “In some cases, contracts are awarded without competition….And that’s completely unacceptable.”

    The March 4 memorandum directed the Office of Management and Budget to “maximize the use of full and open competition” in the awarding of federal contracts.

    Federal campaign records show Checchi has been a frequent contributor to liberal and Democratic causes and candidates in recent years, including to Obama’s presidential campaign.

    The records show Checchi has given at least $6,600 to Obama dating back to March 2007. The contractor has also made donations to various arms of the Democratic National Committee, to liberal activist groups like MoveOn.org and ActBlue, and to other party politicians like Sen. John F. Kerry, former presidential candidate John Edwards and former Connecticut Senate candidate Ned Lamont.

    Sources confirmed to Fox News that Checchi & Company is but one of a number of private firms capable of performing the work in Afghanistan for which USAID retained it.

    For example, DPK Consulting, based in San Francisco and with offices in Washington, D.C. and elsewhere, states on its website that it has contracted with USAID and other federal agencies on more than 600 projects involving “governance and institutional development” across five continents.

    Among DPK’s most recent projects are the establishment of a new public prosecutor’s office in Jenin, in the troubled West Bank area of the Palestinian Authority, and the improvement of court facilities in the Kyrgyz Republic in Central Asia. Similarly, BlueLaw International, based in Virginia, was awarded a $100 million contract by the State Department in April 2008 to strengthen the “rule of law” in Iraq.

    Although Obama suggested in his remarks on March 4 that he hoped particularly to address problems associated with defense contracting, an Associated Press analysis last July found that the Defense Department frequently awards no-bid contracts under the aegis of the $787 billion stimulus program, and often at higher expense to U.S. taxpayers.

    According to The AP, more than $242 million in federal contracts, or roughly a quarter of the Pentagon’s contract stimulus spending, was awarded through no-bid contracts. And while procurement officers say competitive bidding can actually cost the taxpayers more — because it involves delays and can thereby subject pricing for services and equipment to inflation — the AP analysis found that defense-related stimulus contracts awarded after competitive bidding saved the Pentagon $34 million, compared with $4.4 million when no bidding was involved.

    Figures kept by OMB Watch, a non-profit research and advocacy group that tracks federal spending, show that no-bid contracts have been common under administrations controlled by both parties.

    During fiscal years 2000 and 2001, for example, when Bill Clinton was president, as much as $139.2 billion in federal contracts was awarded without competitive bidding. The OMB Watch figures show that the practice appears to have accelerated sharply during the Bush administration, but the figures are not adjusted for inflation.
