Obama’s Socialist Slights of Hand

obama-marxistobama-socialism-attacks-capitalism We can not exist as a solvent nation with an outstanding loan of $13+ Terra Dollars borrowed over the next ten years. We will go bankrupt. And, that is what the Socialists plan to do.

Obama & Company last week pulled a typical socialist slight of hand by moving to plunge the government into an alarming deficit while deflecting public attention away from that and towards… towards AIG bonuses that are legal and binding per legal contracts that Tim Geithner, Obama’s Secretary of the Treasury was responsible for by his approving of it back in 2008.

That Geithner says he didn’t know about it till just recently showcases Geithner’s glaring Incompetence or that he is a Liar or both.

Now… last week was important folks, not for legal contractual bonuses for capitalist executives, rather for the unconstitutional attack on people who received the bonuses.

I expect a challenge in the Supreme Court if Congress passes a bill to deny any or all legal contractual bonuses of employees of businesses that have been nationalized in part or in whole.

That bonus attack action is an Obama slight of hand to deflect attention from the real problem Obama and Company is creating for America.

What is the real issue? Obama’s 2009 and 2010 deficit jacking budgets and the deficit jacking projections from Obama’s economy destroying deficit spending orgy.

The obvious (to me) Obama & Company goal is to bankrupt the government in order to stage a complete socialist take over per the Pevin – Clown Strategy of destroying a capitalist based society and waging weath spreader class warfare by the redistribution of wealth via the Obama  Pigzilla Porkathon Spending Orgy.

Watch the numbers of the deficit under Obama’s plans and goals and watch his tactics to get his way.

Lies, denials, deflections of attention are all part of the Obama play book and Obama forges ahead like a run away freight train hell bent on a Socialist takeover.

Obama is refusing to veer from his mega-deficit creating spending spree of over $13,000,000,000,000.00 ($13 Trillion) dollars over the next ten years. That is over $13 Terra Dollars, $13,000 Giga Dollars, $13,000,000 Mega Dollars, $13,000,000,000 Kilo Dollars.

That $13+ Terra Dollars of borrowed money, if divided by the population of 320 million Americans, is a debt owed by each man, woman and child living today of over $40 Thousand dollars that must be paid back to China and the other lenders of the money.

That $13+ Terra dollars is BORROWED MONEY!

Because it is borrowed money, the interest payment yearly, via collected higher taxes, on that loan is $780 Billion dollars a year at 6% simple interest. It is not free money and taxpayers are stuck with the interest payments and additionally paying down the principle. WOW!!!!!!!!!

We can not exist as a solvent nation with paying yearly interest and paying down an outstanding loan of $13+ Terra Dollars.

We will go bankrupt… and that is the Socialists’ goal.

    TonsofWash, all done with the new article…

  2. tonsofwash says:

    the debt is very frightening. I hope the plan to stimulate the economy works so the gov’t will generate revenue from it. I am just not convinced that the alternate would not be worse. I sympathize with people facing foreclosure, but do not support enabling them if they made poor decisions. I don’t sympathize will people who ran up credit card debt. I do empathize with people who lost their jobs, especially due to outsourcing. I support helping small businesses to grow and compete. Large corporations who are dictated by stockholders can not be entrusted to save us. Their agenda is to profit and providing jobs for the sake of their country does not fit into their business model. I don’t think it will work.

  3. tonsofwash says:

    and obama’s admin absolutely dropped the ball by allowing provisions for the bonuses. The amt is not of great consequence in the whole scheme of things, but the fallout is very hurtful to the President.

  4. tonsofwash says:

    but I am glad that Congress read the ireport where I suggested taxing gov’t funded bonuses by 98%. I believe they are trying to get my idea passed, although they may be more generous than I and are allowing them to keep 10%.

  5. ldk says:

    Hi VF – I was surprised and a little sorry to see you get booted from iReport. The reason is simply this: as I’ve mentioned before, we need diversity and opposing views. Free speech is limited and useless without these precious things. We certainly disagree on many issues and you probably do not like me, but we are all Americans and each of us – including you – must have an equal voice. Keep the faith…ldk

  6. lisaintx says:

    Hello VF
    You seem to be having way too much fun.:-}
    The AIG Executives are NOTHING BUT the scapegoats for congress and the fact that THEY can not do their jobs.

  7. tonsofwash says:

    lisa, I knew it would only be a matter of time before the right came to the defense of the AIG execs. of course you must or you’d look like a damn socialist, or sumpthin.

  8. votingfemale says:

    lol Hi TW and Lisa! Launching a focused Socialist Tax Attack on AIG’s employee’s legal contractual compensation targeting specific people is unconstitutional no matter how convenient it is as a distraction for a $13 Terra Bucks deficit slam on the country.

  9. tonsofwash says:

    well, I don’t look at it as targeting specific people, although I hold no sympathy for AIG execs. It is targeting gov’t waste and we should not be funding bonuses for executives. I support taxing gov’t funded bonuses on the grounds that it is an unconscionable use of our tax dollars. 😉

  10. votingfemale says:

    well let’s think of it this way… If you legally and fairly played and won the lottery acording to the rules and congress decided to put an end to the lottery with a 100% tax on lottery winnings… you would be specifically targetted.

  11. tonsofwash says:

    yes, I would scream if that happened, but the difference is that although the gov’t administers the lottery, it is funded by stupid people who buy lottery tickets. My winnings would not be coming from taxes. If the lottery went bankrupt and congress decided to tax my winnings, I’d be disappointed, but I think that would be fair. From what I understand almost all big lottery winners have lives in shambles as a result of instant wealth. I can just about count on one hand the number of times I’ve bought tickets. Once it was a record breaking pot in NY and it was right after Reagan funded the Contras. I planned to donate the money to the sandinistas if I won. lol. what a dilemma I would face if I’d actually won.

  12. votingfemale says:

    Hi ldk,

    Nice to see you dear. Thank you for your comment, it is welcome. I too believe in the same things you mentioned. I have never disliked you. I hope we can continue a diversified discourse here. I welcome opposing views… I like to see it. Trollish personal attacks and spamming was something I had to contend with at iReport. I can moderate and block that behavior here. Always know your civil debates are welcome! And very nice of you to drop by dear. Don’t be a stranger…

  13. votingfemale says:

    Well there you go… the lottery generates it’s own revenue… the government doesnt. The money being lended companies is a loan.

  14. tonsofwash says:

    and a bad loan at that! they say it would have crippled the economy, but the economy is destined to be crippled. It probably already is. I’d rather the money go to education, which is what lottery money is intended for. Maybe we should give the AIG execs lottery tickets and give them a fair chance to win their bonuses back.

  15. votingfemale says:

    If the government is going to target people who make millions lets start with hollywood celebrities, media executives and celebrates, politicians and retired politicians, and sports figures.

  16. ohiobelle says:

    Okay I think I am starting to get the hang of this. I hope my pup is with me this time.

  17. tonsofwash says:

    well I don’t think their professions should be targeted, but the amount they make surely should. I’m all for it! I’ll be happy to take a job as a tax collector. I will visit each and every superstar and make them divvy up. If they don’t, I will haunt them. lol.

  18. tonsofwash says:

    belle, your pup? I thought that was you! lol

  19. ohiobelle says:

    hahah. No that is my pooch in a Ohio State shirt. I don’t know why she won’t show up. I am still working on this.

  20. tonsofwash says:

    well belle my regrets that ohio state lost in the basketball tourney on Friday. My sister’s old alma mater (although she flunked out after the first year) Siena beat them by two points. My school, Univ of Wash also lost by two points yesterday, although I was not aware they were even in the tournament. I study online so am not tuned in to their atheletics.

  21. ohiobelle says:

    TonsofWash, I don’t follow basketball too much but thank for saying that. I love OSU football.

  22. votingfemale says:

    hiya belle dear!

  23. ohiobelle says:

    tonsofwash, are you rh?

  24. votingfemale says:

    Belle, have you gotten a wordpress account yet so you can have an Avatar?

  25. ohiobelle says:

    Hello votingfemale. It looks like you are having alot of fun. Have you had more traffic?

  26. tonsofwash says:

    belle, rh? what makes you ask that?

  27. ohiobelle says:

    votingfemale, I set it up this morning. I’ll trying logging off and signing back in. I’ll be back in a minute.

  28. tonsofwash says:

    vf, now we can’t reply to individual comments. what’s up?

  29. votingfemale says:

    The traffic is similar to iReport but without the trolls lol and I am starting to get out into the wordpress community… that is essential to get known and generate more interaction. Had a iReporter troll attack yesterday which I halted and defeated in it tracks… he is banned. lol

  30. votingfemale says:

    I had to disable that… there is a very serious bug with comment paging and the nested commenting feature is a setting under the enable comment paging option. drats… the issuesrun deep and involve google updates… nasty problem. The solution will be in the next version of wordpress.

  31. tonsofwash says:

    not a problem. I don’t particularly like it although it does save one from having to reference the comment one responds to.

  32. votingfemale says:

    Cool!!

    ohiobelle, rosehips is my favorite ireporter! Do you like her?

  34. ohiobelle says:

    Okay maybe she’ll appear this time. I am done messing around with it.
    Have you had any bad visitors from ireports?

  35. votingfemale says:

    yup, and the other problem is missing seeing replies made to comments down the log when people return. most folks know where to pick up where they left off to catch up but may not go backwards in time to find replies…

    ldk was here a bit ago… nice comment… I let it through.

  38. tonsofwash says:

    ohio, did you see rosehips latest post? It’s has the most comments and is second in newsiest, only behind some stupid twilight report.

  39. votingfemale says:

    when you upload the avatar you must go to the bottom of the page there and press apply

  40. votingfemale says:

    that rosehips is a hoot!

  41. tonsofwash says:

    rosehips rocks! She is so nice and so funny and her reports are so enlightened. I have learned so much from her.

  42. votingfemale says:

    she is a good friend, as are you TW!

  43. tonsofwash says:

    ah, shucks votingfemale. I am only just getting to know ya, but I can tell we are going to be good buddies! 😉

  44. ohiobelle says:

    ladies, they said it may take time for belle to download. She’ll be with us shortly.

    Love Rosie! I didn’t get a chance to read the ireport yet but I did read Lisa’s tribute to vf. That was awesome! VF Did you read it?

  45. tonsofwash says:

    ohio, there will be more tributes to vf but there will probably never be another rosehips ireport regarding the freemasons so I suggest you check it out!

  46. tonsofwash says:

    yes ohio, it took time for my avatar to appear. It wasn’t until the spin cycle that I finally made my appearance. and am I glad of that!

  47. ohiobelle says:

    I promise I will check that out shortly. Rosehips is a great reporter. I look forward to reading that report.
    Are we all familiar with Auntie? I believe she tried to turn me in to David for posting the link to vf but David said I didn’t do anything wrong. Auntie is still leaving comments on the first report I did about vf. I don’t think she likes me.

  48. ohiobelle says:

    TW, I have to say ireports isn’t as fun as it used to be. Just read some of the latest post. Boring? I think they banned too many people.

  49. votingfemale says:

    YES! it brought tears to my eyes… I was soo touched.

    ohiobelle // March 22, 2009 at 6:00 pm

    ladies, they said it may take time for belle to download. She’ll be with us shortly.

    Love Rosie! I didn’t get a chance to read the ireport yet but I did read Lisa’s tribute to vf. That was awesome! VF Did you read it?

  50. votingfemale says:

    Belle, in my opinion, Auntie is a hissing slithering snake.

  51. ohiobelle says:

    VF, your stories are really good. I think you are ready for prime time.

  52. ldk says:

    VF – Thank you. I do not dislike you either. Its no fun and serves no purpose to debate someone who is in agreement. I appreciate the invitation and will certainly visit from time to time.

  53. ohiobelle says:

    I wonder why Auntie is so angry?? If they keep people like her around and get rid of you then ireports will have little interest to anybody in my opinion.

  54. votingfemale says:

    ohiobelle, oh my goodness! it is thrilling to hear that… I am like so done with iReport and all that nastiness and censorship.

  55. ohiobelle says:

    I think I read on your post that they got rid of Boomer? Why would they do that? He seem to report good stories.

  56. votingfemale says:

    I can sum it up in a single word… “jealousy”

    ohiobelle // March 22, 2009 at 6:18 pm

    I wonder why Auntie is so angry?

  57. votingfemale says:

    b00mer was publishing something like 5 anti-obama iReports a day.

  58. lisaintx says:

    Tons
    Congress released that money WITHOUT the Proper terms on WHAT it was to be used for in the first place. I remember it and HOWLED at this!!
    Those involved are NOT stupid, though they do appear to be such. So IMO…it was done DELIBERATELY in order to have a scapegoat to cover their own ACTIONS.

    Tons says,
    lisa, I knew it would only be a matter of time before the right came to the defense of the AIG execs. of course you must or you’d look like a damn socialist, or sumpthin.

  59. ohiobelle says:

    I bet Obama’s administration and their daily briefings and the media outlets have something to do with it. They don’t want the truth to be reported. They’d rather people post about what they had for dinner the night before. LAME.

  60. ohiobelle says:

    Lisa, I guess in a way I have come around to defend AIG a bit. If Dodd didn’t read his own modification then that is his problem. I think AIG is just another distraction.

  61. votingfemale says:

    Lisa! I was touched to the point of tears when I read your VF iReport… it made me sob… you are such a dear friend. Thank you for that sweetie-pie..

  62. ohiobelle says:

    The way congress passed the 90% tax rate on bonuses was hateful. If they did that to AIG then my fear is they could do it to anybody.

  63. votingfemale says:

    I believe that 90% tax on those individuals is unconstitutional and expect to see it taken to federal court.

  64. tonsofwash says:

    hateful ohio? puleeze. it is a response to the outrage that we all feel at spending our taxes to help the rich get richer for unjustified reasons. NOONE should receive a retention bonus for failure if the gov’t had to bail the company out in order for them to stay in business. How ludicrous that we should pay for that kind of money to people who surely don’t need it. I thought the taxing idea was brilliant and I’m glad that Congress follows rosehips comments and followed her advice. 90% was too generous though. Rosehips suggested 98% and she admitted that was too generous. I think they should return their salaries as well. They didn’t deserve to get paid for their incompetancy.

  65. ohiobelle says:

    vf, I agree. I believe they’ve already filed a lawsuit. I will be following that case closely.

  66. votingfemale says:

    lisaintx, your avatar is cute!!! Horse Woman!

  67. lisaintx says:

    Glad you enjoyed VF. Did you like the poem about the kitty? It made me laugh so much when I first read it and has so many key words that you have used in the past..hahaha:-}

  68. ohiobelle says:

    Tons, I agree that they shouldn’t be rewarded for their failures however Geithner and Dodd didn’t feel that way when they wrote the modification into the spending bill. Geithner and Dodd want to put all the blame on AIG.

  69. votingfemale says:

    These socialists have to be reigned in… they forget there is such a thing as the judicial branch of the government. Just because they have enough votes to ball a law dies not mean it is constitutional. their pomposity is amazing.

  70. lisaintx says:

    thanks VF. I’ve always liked THAT avatar better than my mug on the comments…;-}

  71. ohiobelle says:

    I am amazed that Dodd has never been expelled from office. I believe the last time a Senator was expelled was in 1862. That’s probably why our government is so corrupt. They never pay for their wrong doings.

  72. tonsofwash says:

    ohio, from what i understand, Giethner and Dodd put the provision in because they were afraid of lawsuits. You can’t win for trying. Damned if you do, damned if you don’t. They were between a rock and a hard place and if I can use just one more metaphor, the whole situation stinks to high heaven!

  73. votingfemale says:

    They got the bonus per a legal and binding contract. Contracts are the basis of business law and whether or not we think it should not have been done it was done legally and properly… just like when Bill Ayers got off on a technicality… he was guilty as sin and admitted it later… that the police investigation had issues that let him off is the law, like it or not.

    “NO ONE should receive a retention bonus for failure”

  74. lisaintx says:

    Ohio and Tons,
    I agree too. I was at first just as OUTRAGED over those HUGE bonuses to those at AIG. But then I realized WHO was behind NOT setting the terms of the contract on WHAT the money could be used for. Franks, Dodd and Pelosi screaming ONLY made it MORE obvious IMO….that it was THEY that had failed to state the terms of this mess and needed someone to BLANE to get their butts off the hook and appear as the self-righteous bitches they are.

    ohiobelle // March 22, 2009 at 6:25 pm

    Lisa, I guess in a way I have come around to defend AIG a bit. If Dodd didn’t read his own modification then that is his problem. I think AIG is just another distraction.

  75. ohiobelle says:

    OMG! Sorry to change the subject but I just checked in on ireports… LAME reports or lefties at large reports. I guess CNN got what they wanted. A LAME ASS WEBSITE!

  76. tonsofwash says:

    ok, well I will concede that the contracts are binding and that the gov’t screwed up. They should have let AIG go under and then taken them into receivership, which may have made the contracts null and void. I don’t know what exactly they could have done to prevent the bonuses from being awarded. A retroactive tax does set a bad precedent. The total money is trivial when the big picture is in focus, but it still doesn’t sit right and it shows why we need such dramatic changes in our system.

  77. votingfemale says:

    That poem was sooo cute!

    meow

    Lisa said: Glad you enjoyed VF. Did you like the poem about the kitty?

  78. votingfemale says:

    iReports has gone to the dogs, in my opinion and that is what CNN wanted… left only bs by the ton.

  79. ohiobelle says:

    vf, you should start your own ireports… where we can all add our stories.

  80. votingfemale says:

    in the grand scheme of things… the bonuses are only a drop in the bucket compared tio the rest of the mega billions the govt is spending… on pork

  81. ohiobelle says:

    I think I am going to start writing about sunsets and flowers on ireports… hahahah

  82. votingfemale says:

    ohiobelle we can do that here… we can group up here and interlink

  83. votingfemale says:

    I am still scratchingthe wordpress surface but it is beyond iReport like the space shuttle is to a bi-plane.

  84. votingfemale says:

    sunsets and flowers… and only use tags like obama, obama_administration, bailout, economy

    CNN blowing sunshine while rome burns… shakes head hahahahahaha

  85. votingfemale says:

    also wordpress supports account hookups to another domain… an associate of mine and I have reserved a domain name… 🙂

  86. ohiobelle says:

    vf, hahaha. I am writing about a pet rock.

  87. votingfemale says:

    pet rock! ROFL!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  88. votingfemale says:

    how about a 30 minute video of grass growing?

    lol

  89. ohiobelle says:

    I wonder how CNN really feels about you leaving. I never would’ve posted if it weren’t for you. I left many comments in your post before I ever posted. I wonder if others will choose to walk away. I’ve haven’t seen alot of people that I used to see. I see alot of new people with no stars.

  90. ohiobelle says:

    OH MY GOD!! I laughed so hard when I read your comment. I think grass growing is just what CNN would want.

  91. votingfemale says:

    I don’t know what CNN thinks… but I got a lot of traffic for CNN and that is now gone…

  92. ohiobelle says:

    That you did. I almost think they want people to give them story ideas. They want perfect harmony and lefties loving each other. WTF!!!! Get ready for grass growing or pet rocks!

  93. votingfemale says:

    yes, grass growing iReports… that will get the traffic
    Wink! Wink!
    You Betcha!

  94. votingfemale says:

    what seems to be the issue with your avatar dear?

  95. votingfemale says:

    you could do an iReport on space… with a black graphic. and say empty space is cold and it also sucks because it is a vacuum… please leave comments about cold sucky vacuum…

  96. ohiobelle says:

    I just read rosehips article that is most commented. I disagree with her but told her I would give her 5 stars for the effort.

    I do hate these stupid stars.

  97. votingfemale says:

    no star ratings here

  98. tonsofwash says:

    hey don’t go away, i’m on the phone with my mom.

  99. ohiobelle says:

    I bet I’ll get 5 stars for my grass growing rock report.

  100. votingfemale says:

    ladies… I have to run. we are going out for a while… hugs dears!

  101. ohiobelle says:

    Bye vf! I have to go as well. Tons, I am sorry I couldn’t stick around. I will check back later.

  102. tonsofwash says:

    you’re all gone?

  103. tonsofwash says:

    wah!

  104. tonsofwash says:

    well, I guess I should go out too. I hope you will be on later, vf. I am all worked up over health care and VA benefits for my dad. grrrrr….

  105. arlenearmy says:

    vf
    I read that lovely poem Lisa put up on her ireport. It was heart felt to me. You are a wonderful special lady.

    VF, you have a gift. I don’t know if you see it. But I do. At 1st I thought that you needed a video to get your message thru. But I followed you due to your reports being in YOUR OWN words & your report were said in the
    raw”. The ONE extra MAIN INGREDIENT that separated you from most is: persistence & frequency. It may not be long before you get advertising $$$, though that is up to you.

  106. arlenearmy says:

    Back on subject… I think we are already bankrupt. I keep hearing the news saying that we are headed in that direction. But we are already bankrupt & they need to report the truth. I don’t think that there’s any US bankruptcy court that the government can LEGALLY file in to be declared bankrupt. If I got 1K $ & am in debt for over that amount w/no visible means of paying it back, then I am in fact bankrupt & don’t need any court or judge to tell me that.

  107. arlenearmy says:

    To Ohio & VF about Auntie.

    The problem with that Auntie person is that she has what my hubby calls the: Alpha wolf problem. VF is the alpha female wolf. VF is the leader of the pack. Auntie person is jealous of that. When I told my hubby about you he said that VF remind him of a female alpha wolve he had a long time ago. He used to raise wolves & recognize the personalities. He said that alpha wolve is a survivor.

    And I can assure you, VF.. that Auntie ain’t no survivor. She’s worthless than a trash can rumbling mutt.

  108. votingfemale says:

    Hi Arlene,

    Lisa’s iReport was so touching. I am very gratified that I have been able to connect with people and make so many friends. In the context of iReport is was a kill or be killed atmosphere just to survive if one spoke from the heart about their observations and perceptions that went against the grain of a politician molded almost from boyhood to attempt performing a socialist takeover through charisma and BS as smooth as silk. It creeped me out looking at him speaking to the crowd in Berlin… truly.

    I would welcome advertisers… to support my efforts. I would enjoy doing this full time.

    My kitty avatar… meow ROFL

    It is a kitty cat looking through a mouse hole watching for the mouse as seen from the mouse’s perspective.

    I have had so many chuckles over the numerous and diverse comments people have made about my kitty cat avatar. It’s fun.

    I truly do not set out to lead anyone rather to say my say and critics be damned who try stifling me for their own objectives.

    I have always… always… welcomed differences of opinion but any who bring them had best be armed with facts and the ability to back them up. Folks fitting that description on the left at iReport are few and far between and with them I have a mutually respectful relationship.

    That included GVSCMR. We were mutually opposing friends.

    Same thing with rosehips… they don’t come any further left than her and I think the world of her.

    Being deleted from iReport only strengthened my resolve to speak and I view the deletion as a stellar compliment… that a woman with a laptop and a mind could make Obama worshipers feel so threatened that they spent more time attacking and tracking and discussing me than they did singing the praises of their fearless leader, Barack the Unqualified.

    Auntie is strictly a small time operator for whom I have zero respect. In my observation I totally agree with your assessment… her problem is summed up in a single word… “jealousy”

    …and she learned tangling with me in debate was not something she was going to win at.

    She is a light weight.

    arlenearmy // March 23, 2009 at 12:17 am
    To Ohio & VF about Auntie.

    The problem with that Auntie person is that she has what my hubby calls the: Alpha wolf problem. VF is the alpha female wolf. VF is the leader of the pack. Auntie person is jealous of that. When I told my hubby about you he said that VF remind him of a female alpha wolve he had a long time ago. He used to raise wolves & recognize the personalities. He said that alpha wolve is a survivor.

    And I can assure you, VF.. that Auntie ain’t no survivor. She’s worthless than a trash can rumbling mutt.

    Arlene, I see you as a woman with backbone and strength of character. And I can not began to tell you how much I admire that, and you personally.

  111. arlenearmy says:

    Oh VF.. I forgot to ask you if you were gonna do an article on the Obama’s brown shirt group may be knocking on folks doors. I got an email from resistnet.com.

    Below is the video that was posted on that site:

    VF, I left a comment on your other post earlier but it never posted.
    This is pretty cool over here at wordpress.

  113. Mike says:

    It’s not the same without you over at CNN. Way to many far left leaning, “I’ll believe anything President Obama says.” individuals. Getting crazier all the time. Seems if anyone disagrees, we’re screwed, even by some that I really used to respect.

  114. karmahd says:

    is anyone still here

  115. karmahd says:

    OK is my picture here yet??

  116. arlenearmy says:

    Karma.. I dont see your picture.. just the default one that WordPress provides.

  117. arlenearmy says:

    Karma:

    1. Look to the left & you’ll see my dashboard

    Can anyone see my avata? I can see Karmahd’s from my comment page, but not on this post.

    I see the blue – green floral avatar.

  120. java66 says:

    Arlene, Vf had made a comment that I needed to get one, and I already had it. Then I saw karmahd avatar on my comment page, but not here. So I thought maybe mine didn’t show up.
    Thanks for letting me know!

  121. votingfemale says:

    I can see your avatar Java! way cool!!!

    morning vf!

  123. votingfemale says:

    If folks add the url for your wordpress blog site in your wordpress set up it will turn your name into a hyper link so people can click on it and immedately access your wordpress web site.

    That is why my comments show my name as underlined as does Arlene’s.

  124. votingfemale says:

    Morning Tons!

    brb, need to reboot

  125. tonsofwash says:

    ahhh funny, I was just wondering about that!

  126. tonsofwash says:

    this thread is gettting too long. Can you create pages for the comments?

  127. tonsofwash says:

    and the lag time sux after I submit.

  128. tonsofwash says:

    so neranger went on my post yesterday and left some messages for you. He called me tonsofwash. lol. I acknowledged that he must have visited here but he said someone told him my new id.
    he acts like he is glad you’re gone, but I don’t think he is ready to part with his obsession for you. You are missed by your biggest adversaries. and if you really want a good laugh, check out nev’s latest post. MartinT got all jiggy on there. you’ll have to hunt. she has a lot of comments. She’s #1 newsiest and comments and it’s X rated! If David w. sees it he’ll crap his pants! lol.

  129. votingfemale says:

    It has been obvious to me for a very long time that NERanger was/is obsessed with me.

    Wow, can that guy spin and contort!

  130. votingfemale says:

    got the url for that post, Tons?

  131. votingfemale says:

    there is a MAJOR bug involving search engines that happens if comment pages are used. That bug has to be fixed by WordPress… I looking into the comment paging issue and discovered that.

    Even though I unclicked the comment feature which includes paging and newest first, the newest still shows up first… if newest shows up last scrolling is eleminated all to gether and the comment editor is next to the latest comment… live and learn… now I have to figure out how to get the comments to show newest at the bottom. Perhaps switching themes will do it.

  132. votingfemale says:

    If NERanger says he has not visited my blog site he is fibbing… as usual.

    did you get him off?

  136. votingfemale says:

    That chocolate report is a riot!

  137. tonsofwash says:

    yeah it is. nev is a hoot. blab is outrageous. geo let loose too. I was tempted but after the other night, I am trying to be good. We are going to lobby david w for private rooms! lol.

  138. votingfemale says:

    I finally got him out the door… peace at last. It amazes me the level of anxiety over a doc or dentist appointment.

    That chocolate report is a riot!

  139. votingfemale says:

    that is another feature of wordpress… access to make comments can be automatically limited to approved friends only or no comments at all.

    I prefer allowing people to make comments and let the spam filter catch the crap… can also ban a specific commenter.

  140. tonsofwash says:

    sure, that’s what you want. but in the case of a sexy post like nev’s a private room would keep people from seeing our comments. The last thing we need is people complaining about the content when it’s so explicit. that obamadumb is one of your friends. he was the guy chatting up jane and her horse. lol.

  141. tonsofwash says:

    speaking of doctors, I’m getting really agitated by how the whole system works. doctors are overcharging patients and ripping off the gov’t, we the people, in the process. My mom is very healthy and hasn’t had a doctor in FL for the 8 years they’ve spent winters there. But she got a bladder infection and the doctors did so much testing for other stuff, the bill came to $1500! all charged to private insurance and medicare.

  142. votingfemale says:

    obamadumb giving jane a hard time? lol

  143. tonsofwash says:

    and they are doing the same thing with my dad. and the va is giving them the runaround.

  144. tonsofwash says:

    obamadumb is so hot for jane.

  145. votingfemale says:

    someone was saying a war is heating up at iReport between PO’ed previous Obama voters who are now Open-Eyed and the “Obama Obsessed” who would follow him off a cliff like lemmings.

  146. tonsofwash says:

    do you know which posts the war is taking place on?

  147. votingfemale says:

    I saw Jane’s real pic… (not very attractive, imo) when she first got to iReport, like a total net newbie, she put personal info in her profile including her real estate website page which showed her pic and phone numbers. what a nimrod…

    tonsofwash // March 23, 2009 at 12:30 pm

    obamadumb is so hot for jane.

  148. tonsofwash says:

    well, some people use ireports to network and hope to promote their business.

  149. votingfemale says:

    No… I don’t surf iReports. one of the new commentors on my blog said that yesterday.
    Have a look around… probably on the I’m back report.

    tonsofwash // March 23, 2009 at 12:31 pm

    do you know which posts the war is taking place on?

  150. votingfemale says:

    I found the comment….

    rhayes // March 22, 2009 at 5:10 am (edit)

    VF I believe that those who voted for obama are turning on the ones that still stand up for him…I know you left ireports but any good bloggist would know to go back and see what’s going on…they are at each others throats….the funny thing is…those of us that told them about obama…got out of ireports…it’s not the same…..I’m not blogging about politics yet…but I’m afraid to…these ppl are crazy…A lot of angry ppl out there…somebody’s going to get hurt i’m afraid….

  151. votingfemale says:

    rhayes is a sweetie…

    rhayes? You get your wordpress account and get up to speed with it and you will be safe from the trolls such as the ones roaming iReport at will with wink and nod approval by CNN staff.

    You have the tools with a WordPress account to moderate your blog access yourself and keep trolls totally off your blog. Ask me how I know dear! 😉

  152. tonsofwash says:

    well, i’m sure there’s some of that, but i take comments like rhayes’s with a grain of salt. I know there are some who are doubting him, and some who will defend him no matter what and then there are those who will misrepresent the climate to spin it to their liking. The scary thing is that some people will listen to that spin and form conclusions based on it.

  153. votingfemale says:

    I have personally read iReports before I left from Obama voters who start of with “I voted for Obama, but…” and go on to criticize his actions.

  154. karmahd says:

    The Picture is on my blog settings page, but does not appear here. Oh well

  155. tonsofwash says:

    sure there are some of those. not as many who start off saying “I voted for GW Bush in past elections, but the Republicans have……(fill in blank)”

    jane is defending the freemasons this morning on my post. She’s responding to mimi’s comments. I love that I got a diversity of responses. infoaddict, one of my fav ireporters just left me a nice comment too.

  159. votingfemale says:

    What is confusing is there are two places to upload an avatar here…

    1) under general settings

    2) under profile

  160. karmahd says:

    NERanger and I had a run in yesterday, is “it” a man or woman? Very short sited and vial cheerleader for the left, also Auntiebj I commented on one of her last posts and said before I left the DSA would be proud of you for your fine work! She left the post after I said that and did not post anything for 3 days until yesterday??? I am wondering if the Obama team has “hired” bloggers to spread his message??

  161. karmahd says:

    VF I have done that two different times all I can figure is my picture is too large even after uploading it twice?? I will try again

  162. tonsofwash says:

    yeah karma, didn’t i tell you, i’m on obama’s payroll now and the money is gooood! lol. I wish.

  163. votingfemale says:

    I doubt they are paying anyone to blog at iReports… those folks are just too unsophisticated.

  164. votingfemale says:

    you have to crop the pic to fit!!! it gives you the chance to do that.

  165. tonsofwash says:

    my dream job….blogging and getting paid scads of money to do it. :-0

  166. votingfemale says:

    The blog pic has to be Avatar sized…

  167. tonsofwash says:

    what did you and ne get into karma?

    I think he’s ok….definitely has a vf fixation and he’s probably distraught now that he doesn’t have a target for his disaffection. hehehe

  168. karmahd says:

    Tonsxxxxxxx would be your Obama blog name, VF I did do that, shit let me do it again

  169. tonsofwash says:

    haha karma, I’m sticking with the “wash”….politcal spin and dirty laundry will be my blog title heehehehe

  170. votingfemale says:

  171. tonsofwash says:

  172. tonsofwash says:

    karma knows who i am….are you kidding karma or are you getting hostile on me????

  173. votingfemale says:

    karma! wash said that as a joke… methinks you dont know who tons really is! hahahahahahaha

  174. tonsofwash says:

    and karma, i’m not trying to hide that i’m rosehips. I was just playing with ohiobelle yesterday. I have to admit it is fun to pretend to be someone else and talk about rosehips. Did i sound like a narcissist? yeah, you right. lol.

  175. karmahd says:

    With NE any hint of dissapproval with Obama and he goes into a defensive rant. Obama could be eating live puppies and he would say just give him a chance he has only been in office two months. It is silly, I did some reserch on Bamas background, and he is the new Manchurian canadate for the Democrats, he has been molded by the Democratic party to win the election. Numerous comments that stated all he was interested in was the next level up in the process. He won elections by dirty politics, and as we know won his seat in the house in 2004 started 2005 and then announced he was running for president??? Either a plan or this guy is a flaming narcissist

  176. karmahd says:

    Ladies I know who Tonsofwash is and yes it was a joke what I said!! More coffee???

  177. votingfemale says:

    Karma, your avatar has to be 48 px X 48 px

  178. tonsofwash says:

    I think obama has planned his presidency for a very long time. and yes, he is a narcissist, imho.

  179. tonsofwash says:

    and yes, i will take another cup of joe, but I want it from vf because she makes the best!

  180. karmahd says:

    Well I uploaded just part of my face, the size of the original I will try later, now I have to get to work, my production has suffered the last month due to my obsession with IReport, now I have you guys too, I am going to loose my puny little job… I will check in later

  181. tonsofwash says:

    maybe my blog should be called “Taking the Spin Out of Dirty Laundry”

  182. votingfemale says:

    karmahd, what you said about Obama is true… that people were caught up in his personal hopium yes we can style exemplifies the type of power hitler displayed. I dont think Obama is a bloodthirsty hitler but the sway the two have/had with the public is the same.

  183. tonsofwash says:

    karma, be strong. garner up all your will power. you don’t want to lose your job.

  184. votingfemale says:

    see ya later karma… dont let the iReport trolls suck you in… there is a whole world out here and they are not in it.

    karma is a smart guy and a sweetie…
    I think he has the right idea… it is a size issue with his gravatar.

    there are lags here today too… wonder what is up with that…

    Hey I am backkkkkk for a little while, OK I uploaded a 46×46 jpeg lets see if that works!!! The guy about Russia was just basically pasting news report videos?? Also he posted that IReport was blocking him from uploading, I think that might have ticked off Ireport. Have you seen Ladyinthehoods stuff as of late???? What is she trying to do?

  205. tonsofwash says:

    i haven’t seen too much of lady’s in the past few days. she doesn’t make sense with a lot of her posts lately, but I still try to check in and leave a comment to let her know she is appreciated.

  206. karmahd says:

    Ok my work server is back up, Ladyinthehood is on a mission, I just don’t know what that mission is. It appears as if she wants to have a business attached to her IReports for advertising??? I am lost on that one. I do not know WTF is up with the avatar???

  207. votingfemale says:

    There is so much drama at iReport now it is amazing…

  208. votingfemale says:

    I am getting lagged also… there seems to be wordpres server problems right now… 😦

  209. M2Elena says:

    Hi VF!, Rosehips gave me your new link! That’s crap that you were banned. I was off iReports, b/c our TV station is going to be auctioned, and I have to start the Job search. So I didn’t really know what happened.

    Thought I’d share this link for you:

    Keep it up! – “Mommy2Elena”

  210. tonsofwash says:

    karma, yesterday I noticed a ireport tag on the left side bar that was “karmahd” no lie. You had your own tag on the front page. It’s gone now and it isn’t even on the big tag list. what was that about? pretty cool having a tag.

    and cnn put a “on cnn” tag on my victory garden post…two days after the fact. what good is that? it doesn’t raise the visibilty since it is already buried.

  211. tonsofwash says:

    yeah, it’s annoying.

  212. karmahd says:

    I added my screen name to all my reports so I guess it did that, if you see Crazy cue ball has it as well and Larnea. What is up with that woman, wow, I think she is bored or something???

  213. tonsofwash says:

    actually, “karmahd” is a tag in the last week’s list.

  214. votingfemale says:

    Karma? I have a new idea about your avatar dear…

    1) go to “My Account” (to the left of “my dashboard”)
    2) edit profile
    3) upload your avatar to the “Gravatar”

  215. tonsofwash says:

    lady has a tag of her own too. i bet vf does too.

    the pics lady posts are amusing. what’s up with posting the back of her head? lol.

  216. tonsofwash says:

    larena? she is a bit out there. free fun in my swimming pool. like we all have one. lol.

  217. votingfemale says:

    The Gravatar is the one that follows you around… not the Blog Picture as I understand it.

  218. votingfemale says:

    tags… you can make up a tag… and yes there is a voting_female tag… Lady’sHoodJrnl created it a way back.

  219. tonsofwash says:

    larena posted a pic of all her handbags last week. She’s got about as many as imelda marcos has shoes!

  220. karmahd says:

    Ok I have now done the “Gravatar” lets see if that works, it did say it would take a few minutes

  221. votingfemale says:

    larena? I like larena… she was quite upset with me back during the campaign… until she and some others realized why I was so outraged with the primary… I really wantedHillary to win the nomination and she was stabbed in the back and cheated out of it to make way for Barack the Socialist by the DNC and others. Although I have always been a capitalist and fiscally conservative I felt it was time for a liberal centrist to take the office. and what did we get? A damn full blown socialist and a bungling FIGJAM one at that. GRRRRRRR

  222. votingfemale says:

    that should do it Karma… and it will take a few minutes… or more… it has to work it’s way through the wordpress servers which seem to be laggy right now.

  223. votingfemale says:

    Obama’s term will be a very expensive lesson for American voters who have been BSed by the socialists… and if we survive the takeover attempt I believe it will set the DEM party back to the stone age… such is the way of things when extremism takes power (left or right).

  224. tonsofwash says:

    have you ever seen this? http://costofwar.com/

  225. karmahd says:

    You know Numbersdude (Lette’s) husband is defending Obamas budget saying it is what is needed??? Bush left a 1 Trillion debt for Obama and that counted the war, and now we are supposed to believe it will take 2.7 billion to pay off 1 trillion, FUZZY math to me

  226. tonsofwash says:

    at what interest rate does the gov’t borrow $ at?

  227. karmahd says:

    VF I am thinking it is some other setting on my page, or you have to allow me to post or something as to the Gravitar?? Did not someone else say they could see my picture but not on here???

  228. votingfemale says:

    cost of war? I knew the cost was in the hundreds of billions… and I consider Bush & Company to be Right Wing Extremists… thus I don’t defend him/them on that particular war and other acts I deem as extremist. His two terms hurt the GOP for the same reasons (extremist policies and actionts) that Obama & Company will hurt the DEM party.

    While Saddam needed to be brought down is true… that we should be the ones to do it is not true, in my opinion. That was a unilateral my way or the high way war of the GOP. I am glad Saddam isgone… I am glad to see democracy take hold in Iraq… but the ends don’t justify the extremist means, in my opinion.

    I really really am a centrist and so many people fail to see that…

  229. karmahd says:

    Not sure on the rate, but it is not much, given the markets

  230. votingfemale says:

    Karma, your gravatar is not blocked on my Blog… I checked and it is not and that is something I can do if a Gravatar is not a nice one.

    Did your pic ever show up so you can see it as your Gravatar?

    Someone mention they could see your avatar on your own blog but that was not your Gravatar which is what would show up here.

  231. tonsofwash says:

    i just found out yesterday that my dad receives a VA pension. I learned about his military history from my mom and it contradicts everything I thought from the past. I thought my dad enlisted during the Korean War but my mom said he enlisted in 1943 at the age of 16. Then two years later he got sick and got a medical discharge. They used to give him $10/mo. Now it is up to $100/mo. I wonder how many other’s get that who don’t even need it?

  232. votingfemale says:

    You would have to research that number… and as our credit rating goes down the interest rate for new loans will go up… I did a calculation on $13 Trillion dollars of debt at 6% interest that came to a simple interest payment of over $780 Billion interest per year.

    tonsofwash // March 23, 2009 at 2:34 pm

    at what interest rate does the gov’t borrow $ at?

    I have to go take jonah to school.

    I just wrote to Lisa Jackson, epa head. Again, we are trying to undo one of Bush’s stupid rulings that wouldn’t allow California to set it’s own fuel efficiency standards.

    obama is trying to undo Bush’s footprint on California’s attempt to set their own standards. Like allowing medical marijuana legislation from states, he is giving states more and more freedoms.

    Hi VF!, Rosehips gave me your new link! That’s crap that you were banned. I was off iReports, b/c our TV station is going to be auctioned, and I have to start the Job search. So I didn’t really know what happened.

  245. tonsofwash says:

    arlene, what do you mean “how the gov’t treated AIG?” bailing them out?

  246. tonsofwash says:

    arlene, what do you mean “how the gov’t treated AIG?” bailing them out?
    did you or do you support the bail out of aig?

  247. arlenearmy says:

    tonsofwash
    Its not the bailout of AIG im referrering to. Its the public broha. Many companies feel that if they take any bailout or deal w/the government, trouble follows. If I had a company I wouldn’t take anything from the feds.. not even an interest loan. My husband used to work for an oil company before he retired & that company always gave big bonuses. Things are kind of at a stand still right now.

  248. tonsofwash says:

    well it doesn’t surprise me that your husband’s company gave out big bonuses. Oil companies are pigs and their profits are what they care about. sorry but I have no affection for the oil companies. they are akin to rapists in my book.

  249. ohiobelle says:

    Good afternoon ladies. Sorry for not checking in sooner but my “honey do” list is killing me.

  250. arlenearmy says:

    I was against all the bailouts form the beginning. Remember Paulson came out & said the it was needed or else. i have a speed dial of the phone # of 2 senators. I kept saying no no no no and they voted no. But the other congressmen & senators voted yes. But since the bailouts went thru, I dont think it was right to demand the name of the employees & harrass them at there homes. I heard the employees got death threats. I fear that we are entering to a culture of mob violence. Somebody could had got hurt.

  251. arlenearmy says:

    tonsofwash
    you do know that the VA have junkets for its volunteers every year. Im not talking about Christmas parties. there was a big stink over it because some employees felt that the volunteers were taking their jobs. Some VA employees are union. those volunteers didnt put it on their tax return. i guess they will be next on the list to be exposed on capital hill.

  252. tonsofwash says:

    well, I think it was a big mistake to allow our taxes to pay the bonuses, but now it is just a distraction. It doesn’t really bother me that the names were released. It will influence the execs to give the $ back, which is what they should do. I hope they get hounded. taking the $ is immoral considering how much employment we have.

  253. tonsofwash says:

    the gov’t understands the value of volunteer recognition. It helps to retain them. It is cost effective i believe.

  254. arlenearmy says:

    Now you got hubby worked up. He said he worked his ass for that bonus & he that he went over and beyond the call of duty.

  258. tonsofwash says:

    vf, what’s with the oversized tags? they are overlapping.

  259. ohiobelle says:

    Good afternoon tons. I was curious about the tags as well.

  260. tonsofwash says:

    I liked what obama said last night on 60 Minutes. Salaries are out of whack. There are many highly intelligent and capable people, who with the proper training could do many jobs that grossly overpaid people do today for far less and be happy with it. I like the model where the highest paid person, ie CEO only makes 7 times what the lowest makes.

  261. tonsofwash says:

    now they are back down to size. hi belle! I wanted to tell you that i am really rosehips. I was just messing with you yesterday. Did you know that?
    karma gave me crap about pretending to be someone else.

    now they are back down to size. hi belle! I wanted to tell you that i am really rosehips. I was just messing with you yesterday. Did you know that?
    karma gave me crap about pretending to be someone else.
    and this lag is crap.

  263. votingfemale says:

    been busy adjusting my blog settings… a lot of tag work plus addingand adjust gadgets like the new ones that now show on the right column… the blue tags on the right column are hyper links to search a particular tag… the tags at the bottom of the post are the tags the post is listed under… pant pant pant… researching often used tags is a major pain… as is adding them. wordpress lets you create your own pool of search tags so you can add tags to posts by simply click on your tag collection list. Nice feature once it is done but a pain to get set up initially.

  264. tonsofwash says:

    i just got back from the dentist. My mouth is numb. They were not happy that I refused amalgams for repairing a broken tooth. My great uncle invented the amalgamator and I always say he probably spinning in his grave everytime I refuse amalgams. I don’t care if it pisses them off, i don’t want mercury in my system.

  265. ohiobelle says:

    Tons, I figured it out right away who you were. I understood why you were doing it.

    Good afternoon vf.

  266. arlenearmy says:

    Hey VF
    Im taking a breather…. ive been on hold for over 30 minutes to speak to that manager at walmart over the books they dont sell.

    what about including another tag: brown shirt

  267. tonsofwash says:

    belle, why did you think i was doing it?

  268. tonsofwash says:

    belle, why did you think i was doing it?
    rosehips is already taken as a blog host, so I had to use a different name.

  269. ohiobelle says:

    tons, I hate the dentist even though I spend more time with him then my own family. A couple of weeks ago I had to have all my fillings replaced because they were getting too old. It’s never ending with me and my teeth. Maybe that is what I will post on ireports. hahah

  270. votingfemale says:

    Hiya Belle!!! nice to see you!

  271. tonsofwash says:

    belle, did you get silver amalgams or composite?

  273. votingfemale says:

    dang, Arlene! 30 minutes…. grrrrr

  274. ohiobelle says:

    tons, I thought you were doing it because anybody could view what we talk about. There could be haters that read everything but just can’t post from ireports.

  275. tonsofwash says:

    well, they have been trolling. Someone saw that I had a new id and must have posted it. neranger came on my freemason post and exposed me . lol. I don’t care. I am not hiding anything.

  276. votingfemale says:

    mercury… I have a ton of fillings… perhaps that is why I howl at the moon… lol

  277. ohiobelle says:

    tons, my fillings aren’t silver so they must be the other?? I never ask. I close my eyes so I don’t have to see the needle and I pray it doesn’t hurt. I hate shots in the mouth even though I’ve had over a dozen last year.

  278. tonsofwash says:

    yep vf…that explains why you are so mad heehee… you can thank my uncle for that.

  279. ohiobelle says:

    tons, I bet they’ve been trolling, check out the hits to this site. It must drive them nuts!

  280. tonsofwash says:

    where can you see how many hits? All I see are responses.

  281. ohiobelle says:

    I’ve given up trying to upload belle. I’ve done everything right over and over. I am doomed to be this stupid design.

  282. votingfemale says:

    lol Arlene!!!! I only opened the blog site three days ago and the 1st post, I’m Baaack, does not have tags because it is more about iReport than anything else.

    The site is getting a lot of hits…

  283. ohiobelle says:

    Tons, you’re correct. I was looking at the blog stats. I guess that wouldn’t be hits.

  284. ohiobelle says:

    ladies, my honey do list awaits. I have to work in the yard for an hour or two. I will check in when I am finished.

  285. tonsofwash says:

    I liked that ireports show # of views and not hits. that way someone can’t mess with the numbers by hitting their own report over and over.

  286. arlenearmy says:

    vf… i see that its about ireport. i just got off phone with walmart. they tell me that someone from merchandising dept. should be calling me within 3 days about the matter of the books. I gave the name of aobut 5 or 6 books they need on that shelf.

  287. votingfemale says:

    If the iReport trolls thought getting me deleted from iReports would silence me… they stand corrected… my voice is getting a much greater spread now more than ever at iReport.

    They must be chewing 10 penny nails….

  288. tonsofwash says:

    belle, have fun. I did that yesterday and will again today. It’s nice to get out there and clean up the mess from winter. I planted spinich in my garden yesterday.

  289. ohiobelle says:

    tons, I glanced at ireports earlier and I couldn’t stand it. Larena (I think that’s her name) thinks she is so hot with those big fat ugly lips. She tries to take good pictures of her but they all turn out as ugly as her. funny.

  290. votingfemale says:

    Arlene, if you told them you were calling to offer personal kudos to that manager for doing such a fine job, the manager would probably have gotten to the phone within less than 30 seconds…

  291. tonsofwash says:

    well larena is ok. she has some mental issues for sure. and too bad about her lips. she made a mistake with that. she was on the cover of Vogue (the mexican version) when she was younger. She posted it the other day. She is a good looking woman but badly damaged.

  292. ohiobelle says:

    vf, the trolls must be having fun on ireports. The reports now are sooo lame!!

  293. arlenearmy says:

    the only time i go to ireport is if lisa, dc & bgb reports anything. and that its !! I do have principles.

  294. arlenearmy says:

    vf
    as the good book say.. never throw your pearls before the swine.

  295. tonsofwash says:

    there are still plenty of good reports. it’s just not the same without vf’s reports. nevenera’s post yesterday about chocolate was yummy!

  296. ohiobelle says:

    I think anybody that does that to their face has so many issues. She probably should spend time in therapy rather than ireports. Somebody who seeks that kind of attention obviously wasn’t loved enough.

  297. tonsofwash says:

    arlene, what books are you suggesting?

  298. tonsofwash says:

    I think she was abused and I believe she’s written about it.

    I could order them on amazon but the point is that Walmart is not selling books authored by conservatives. The only conservative author they have it Ann Coulter. I did buy her book for Walmart. They have a bunch of liberal authors that are gathering dust, literally.

  310. arlenearmy says:

    i heard about starr parker, but had not got the book yet. i was told it was sold at walmart… but apparently not.

  311. arlenearmy says:

    Liberal facism? No I have not read that one yet. My husband usually get the books & read them 1st & then I read them. We try to read a book once a week.

    When ever I see that word facism it reminds me of American Legion’s history. The sort of history that they dont want to talk about.

  312. votingfemale says:

    Wash, if I had left comments with newest at the bottom… now I cant reverse it. Perhaps with a new report it will go back on that one to newest last next to the comment box… sigh…

  313. arlenearmy says:

    Can the comments be in pages.. such as page 1, 2, 3 instead of all being on the same page ? Im sure it can be done.

  314. tonsofwash says:

    interesting… I googled Uncle Sam’s Cabin and came up with this blog. This guy was born in Nazi Germany, became fixated with America, especially black culture, and has some pretty accurate predictions about the direction America could go…either humanistic socialism or facism..the choice is our…..HA! Check it out. He wrote a novel entitled “Uncle Sam’s Cabin”

    m2, good find on that puma blog. it’s right up vf’s alley.
    obama laughing did strike me as inappropriate. but some of what he said rang very true. wages and bonuses have gotten ridiculous in corporate america. there are people, both smart and capable, who would be happy to do the job aig execs are doing for a fraction of the salary. our unending hunger for more, better, and only the best can’t continue, imo. we are depleting the earth’s resources and poisoning the very things we depend on for survival. sigh.

  331. M2Elena says:

    I think it’s excessive. But so is Hollywood. No one sits around griping about (seriously) griping about prick actors and their 5 multi-million trans-continental mansions and castles. Congress can set the example by cutting out their fat and excess. g5 for Nancy, entitlement attitudes when some 85% of them are “experts on nothing”… We have a whole society of consumerism, and material fixation. Obama can cut some out of his own life. I read a story about Madonna today who was so angry that her nanny was quitting she fired her. They said she makes ‘her people’ work 24/7, and is presently sending a “person” to “pick out another orphan in Malawi”… These people do more to damage our public psyche than the nameless, non-public execs that get ridiculous bonuses and salaries. The people that are out there junking up the airwaves, celebrities and most liberal, when in reality- look, Madonna runs her house like the Fuhrer.

    hollywood celebs can all go take a hike as far as I am concerned… like I need advice from an actor on politics

  340. M2Elena says:

    I mean I’m just saying… they are the biggest hypocrites. Because these people are out there in the public grandstanding (uh how many stinkin’ Obama-loving celebrities did I see, and still hear from), and of course Pelosi and company love to make a big “show”… It’s just ridiculous. And I remember a time when ‘celebrity’ was not the behemoth it now holds. Now everyone wants to “live” like a Hilton and we’re all consumed with image and things because of easy technology and more freedom of time. So people like Madonna and other jokes are absolutely worse than any Joe Blow AIG getting 100k bonus. Companies should have standards, but where’s the outrage about the wealth in the media. Even journalists like Brokaw (etc) get contracts for 10+ mill or so a year. And because these people are so visible it creates a culture of greed. Even Ashton Kutcher (Demi Moore’s child-man), made some ridiculous PSA about “caring” and “giving” and BS (after telling Oprah he was *now* going to honor his country when someone spoke to him about it), and then he starts complaining about his *noisy* neighbor publicly… the neighbor in the multi-million dollar estate next to his. Oh whahhhh booh hoo… I’m tired of people being blind to these characters. I don’t wish them to make less. But if we’re gonna get crazy over execs at some FAKE Governmental money LAUNDERING co. like AIG, let’s at least examine for real the fact that Dodd, Geithner and Obama have a LOT to do with it. But I don’t see that in the media at large. I see crap about dumb Madonna… (and I’m just passionate, I’m not being angry, just ‘splainin’… ha ha.)

    did you know that Judge Judy gets 95 milion a year. Wow! I like her but that is extreme. what does one person need all that money for? I would have no problem if the gov’t taxed the crap outta that.

  343. tonsofwash says:

    funny, I have a friend who is wealthy, but crazy. She has sleep problems and is paranoid. A few years back she got radicalized on the leaf blower issue. It just made me laugh. She’s down in Palm Desert railing against leaf blowers and pow wowing with celebrities over the issue. I don’t like leaf blowers either but think there are more important issues to spend time on. lol

  344. tonsofwash says:

    the thing about the celebs is that people are willing to spend money to see them. But with AIG, the huge profits come at the hands of the consumer. Insurance is big profit-making. I think its wrong.

    That’s crazy, but I’m for her getting whatever. I don’t mind the pay… I just mind people going all Mob Scene on witch hunts when Chris Dodd distinctly put in the legislation (a la Stimulus) called the “Dodd Amendment”. I mind Geithner straight up lying about his “knowledge”… I mind AIG filtering $$$ to foreign banks. I mind Obama getting top campaign donations for AIG executives. I mind Chris Dodd getting top campaign donations from AIG execs. I mind the ridiculous unconstitutional POS the House passed last week to “tax” the bonuses they all voted for the executives to get. ALL I MIND IS CORRUPTION.

    The government reeks of corruption. And their unholy alliance with AIG, and fleecing of the American people is what I mind.

    Then I mind having millionaire celebrities tell me I’m an bumpkin for not voting for a Marxist….

    I mean, people should be allowed to make whatever they work for, as long as I don’t have to deal with trickle-down corruption from people we elected to regulate and represent us in Government. And I don’t appreciate the condescendsion of celebutards acting like they are “above the filth of an overpaid corporate exec” when they’re not. They can shut their mouths. The government can stop being greedy demons working for “pay to play” and companies can do their jobs instead of setting up money laundering shacks.

    I’m all for people making $. People do more for people than a giant amoebic Central bureaucracy.

    I hear ya m2.

    thanks vf, I don’t usually celebrate B’s, but it is a relief, for sure. When I look at all the markings on the memo, I wonder how she gave me a B, but I am not complaining.

  353. tonsofwash says:

    well, judge judy is pretty cool. I like her!

  354. M2Elena says:

    B is good. It’s been a while since I’ve been graded… I don’t miss it too much!! LOL.

    what I would like to understand is why people think it is wrong for folks to be paid big money in the first place… I never got that part

  356. tonsofwash says:

    well, big money just breeds greed and consumerism, which I believe will destroy our society in the end.

  357. votingfemale says:

    what does little money breed?

  358. M2Elena says:

    I think people are guided by the media message. The media (think-tanks) and Congress who usually have their own butts on the line come up with the charge. That’s what I meant by bringing up the ‘celebrity’ pay… See how the media never makes their earnings into an issue. Never. I really think that the Message no matter what it is, is what guides the public thought. Think about how a few weeks ago everyone was saying Limbaugh was the leader of the Republicans… that was a strong message, and then like sheep we’re all herded into the witch hunt against a few million in bonuses… AND to that END, we’re not even getting “Fired” up over the real culprits. The people in government.

    You see loads of policy makers, journalists, scholars are members of “think tanks” … most notable, The Trilateral Commission and the CFR (Council on Foreign Relations)… News isn’t NEWS… News is WRITTEN & distributed for us!

  359. tonsofwash says:

    look at the price of a movie ticket? when I was a kid, we paid 50 cents to go to the movie and you got races, and newsreels and a feature. If the stars made a little less, the tickets could be more reasonable. Everyone wants more of everything.

  360. tonsofwash says:

    hard work?

    vf: what does little money breed?

  361. tonsofwash says:

    nothing wrong with wanting more. we should just set the bar lower.

  362. tonsofwash says:

    I don’t claim to have all the answers, but know that something is wrong with obscene wealth. Americans consumerism is what every other country wants. Imagine if everyone had our wealth. The earth could not support it.

    M2E, the socialists have their own journalism universities… and weave socialism directly into the brains of student journalists… Columbia University is so left wing it squeaks…

    agree m2, obama should make “Free Speech TV” the official gov’t news station and outlaw all the others. lol.

  365. M2Elena says:

    $ is power. Government is power-driven (that’s the whole purpose of this administration). Celebrities can talk (even though most don’t have HS degrees) because they have $. Soros and finaciers can buy a party due to $. And now we have our nation where the UN will shortly announce no longer backs the currency…. We’ll be replaced by China eventually. And all the printing the Fed did last week (just so the banks can horde the $/power in their vaults) will be leading to indefinite inflation. Blahhhhh… But honestly, with what Dodd, Franks etc. had to play in the financial housing mess. Why are they still here? It’s not $, but our inability to control and divide power that will cripple us. Seriously… Republicans regularly stepped down from offenses during Bush reign. Why do the Democrats not get the same? Dodd should go.

  366. tonsofwash says:

    Columbia, I’d love to go there. 😉

  367. arlenearmy says:

    oooo lord… im back. now walmart tells me that they need the isbn numbers for those books. this is just too much work on the consumer. i didn’t know hardback & softback got different numbers.

  368. votingfemale says:

    Why? if you could figure out a way for you to make $100K a year, you should turn down $200K a year and just let it go? for what reason?

  369. votingfemale says:

    ISBN numbers are all listed on Amazon for each title

  370. M2Elena says:

    yeah VF, and during the campaign the Obama’s talked about setting up a whole education of indoctrination into the public sector. Mandatory service, and just totally creepy fascist stuff if you ask me. So now we have the civilian pop getting in both ways. Lol. the “so called brains” “scholars” of think tanks who deliver their news, and then no longer voluntary (indoctrination) like say-choosing Columbia, but mandatory. All part of the plan. Ugh.

  371. votingfemale says:

    a quick search on Amazon for each title will yield the isbn numbers

  372. tonsofwash says:

    well, the normal person making that much would spend their excess wealth on material things and vacations etc. I believe we are reaching the tipping point. If we continue down this path, the earth will be destroyed.

  373. tonsofwash says:

    and the pope condemns the use of condoms. What is gained through proliferating the planet with Catholics, will also gain by reducing the population through the prolieration of AIDS. What a guy!

  374. arlenearmy says:

    amazon ? Oh… ive been all over the net looking here & there. ok… i’m so tired of this. btw, i wonder why walmart’s marketing department dont do this? they called me to ask the isbn number like i’m suppose to know all this. it took me about an hour to get the isbn for 2 books. i bet they dont ask liberals for isbn for obama related books. oh well i need to make me a sandwich cause this search has worn me out. bbl

  375. tonsofwash says:

    if I had bought stock in condoms back in the 80’s when I thought it was a good investment, I may be selling right about now. Then I could take a vacation. heehehehe

  376. votingfemale says:

    M2E, I got a post deleted by CNN on the subject of Mandatory participation of children after the trolls whined about it… comment arguement from them refused to address the fundamental issue I had… forcing children into manditory government labor… Obama reworded his website statement after it a major public backlash over it… but dont think for one minute he changed his mind… and he called for a civilian force equal to the military equally funded… sounds like it is right out of the soviet union…

  377. tonsofwash says:

    isn’t that only for students who get their college paid for vf? or is he suggesting conscription?

  378. M2Elena says:

    well I don’t ‘agree’ with the Pope on birth control but in some respects- he is like you tonsofwash! You feel morally obligated to care for the earth by condeming excess and materialism. The Pope was condemning the behavior in which humans approach ‘sex’ I guess. Like if people treated it with more sanctity (and his definition would be the “extreme of abstinence”, by entering into committed relationships) then AIDs would be better…. In specific. A lot of the AIDs in Africa has to do with the men… not treating women right, I think.

  379. tonsofwash says:

    lol. I think that’s the first time anyone ever compared me to the pope. thanks m2!

  380. votingfemale says:

    out of over 6 billion people on the planet we are 320 million… and Americans spending money is going to destroy the world? Now I agree that native Americans were better off before Europe invaded… life style and all but that can be chalked up to natural human behavior on the part of the Europeans and their technology, capitalism, etc…

  381. M2Elena says:

    That would be against the Constitution VF to force civilian service. But we already know Obama is anti-constitution. I always think of that photo where he’s the only one not putting his hand over his breast during the Pledge. Especially now that he laughs about America’s handicapped, gives our greatest known, and historical ally 25 dvds as a show of “respect” and giggles about the plummeting economy. I’m thinking his character is starting to crack out of it’s phony mold.

  382. tonsofwash says:

    well, if corporations had a moral obligation not to exploit and followed a moral code, our world would be better, although there would not be the prosperity we enjoy here. I don’t get how we can accept that it’s ok to go and rape the land in third world countries and not take responsibility for the impact. sigh.

  383. votingfemale says:

    people are employed to make material things to earn a living and vacations support people making a living from the travel and leisure industry… the more money one makes… with all things being equal the more secure they are financally, thus more safe over all… and are not looking for fundamental financial security from the government.

  384. M2Elena says:

    Thinking I’m going out for a chocolate shake, taking my kid out too… I’ll talk wit’ you guys later!

    Americans constitute 5% of the world’s population but consume 24% of the world’s energy.

    On average, one American consumes as much energy as

    2 Japanese

    6 Mexicans

    13 Chinese

    31 Indians

    128 Bangladeshis

    307 Tanzanians

    370 Ethiopians

    see you later m2!

  387. tonsofwash says:

    I guess I’ll go out too. way too nice to stay indoors. I think I’ll ride my bike. see you later, vf.

  388. votingfemale says:

    no one ever said it was perfect… it has ugly spots and faults… thus needs for laws and regulations but not one that stifle jobs and company prosperity that motivates strength of a company and its ability to provide jobs….

    And there was never a case where any government successfully legislated/controlled a person’s inate morality… that comes from family and friends and genetic encoding… wife beating husband sets example for sons… same with racism… same with good morals also…

    I wasn’t suggesting that we legislate morals, but regulations are necessary because of the lack of moral responsibility.

    see you later!
