Rahm Emanuel Linked To Freddy Mac role in Econ Mess


Rahm Emanuel, Obama’s Chief of Staff, turns out to have been a well paid Member of the Board at Freddy Mac, the housing loan financing company, during a period of shameful behavior by the Mortgage Giant.

That shameful behavior, which occurred while Emanuel was one of the passive Directors, resulted in a scandal over financial accounting practices that resulted in a shake-up in management along with hefty fines being levied and tremendous censuring of Freddy Mac Passive Directors by a top federal regulator.

Apparently, for a sum in excess of $300 Thousand dollars in pay, Mr. Rahm Emanuel provided Freddy Mac a path between Washington and Wall Street that helped fuel the nation’s current economic mess.

See the Chicago Tribune news article which goes into depth on this situation:

    These guys seem to think they can do anything and then rewrite history to spin it…

  2. karmahd says:

    Barney Franks boyfriend worked there as well and he was the developer of the community lending division. Frank and Dodd both did not support any changes in reigning in the underwriting guidelines. Now Frank is in charge?? This guy is THE major reason we are in the current mess we are in. Rham the Bomb is a crook as well.

  3. rosehips says:

    it’s a tangled web.

  4. VotingFemale says:

    These guys twisted arms to force mortgage companies to hand out loans to people who could not or would not be a good credit risk… that caused the collapse and they pretend it is someone else’s fault. They manufactured this mess then brag… a crisis is a terrible thing to waste.

  5. karmahd says:

    Well VF I am in the mortgage banking business and have been since 1984, so this is an area I am familiar with. You know the reason was to loosen up credit was because a Government run program FHA was not serving the needs of the people! So the markets were opened up for private banks and investors to get into community lending, thus was borne Sub Prime, the point being there was a governement program in place to serve this need but it was slow expensive cumbersom and rife with regulations so it did not work, see the irony here with the path of the current administration???

  6. VotingFemale says:

    I see it clearly… and a flood foreign investment capital financed it.

  7. karmahd says:

    Pretty obvious to me as well, cram the machine with more working parts and people to watch those parts and you know what? It will break down, the KISS theory does not apply for this administration, baffle them with BS and overcomplicate the issues, that way it looks like they are working!!

  8. rosehips says:

    it’s good to hear your perspective karma. I don’t have a real grasp on the complexities of what went on to regulate and minipulate the housing market. It’s a shame that people were enabled to borrow money they couldn’t pay back. And Obama was talking yesterday about young people wanting a house now, and they shouldn’t have to wait. I disagree! Let them wait as long as it takes for them to pay off student debt and save some money first. There is nothing wrong with renting. I love the flexibility. I can get outta dodge anytime after Jonah graduates. If I owned a house in this dying town, I ‘d be strapped to it.

  9. VotingFemale says:

    KISS… Keep It Simple, Stupid.

    One of the tenets of engineering as well…

  10. rosehips says:

    yes vf, I was very amused that the Chickasaw word of the day is kowi, prounounce coo-wee:

    Word of the Day Chickasaw: kowi’
    English: cat
    Part of Speech: noun

  11. karmahd says:

    Rose I agree with you wholeheartedly, I am the smart guy and I am stuck in a home worth 25K less than my mortgage amount!! What also gets me is that the consumer was looked at as the victim in this issue!! I have overseen BILLIONS in mortgages over the last 26 years, and rarely has the consumer been unaware!!! They got greedy and the system made it easy! We called it cocaine lending, it was a quick high, addictive, and easy to get. ( loans)

  12. VotingFemale says:

    People need a stake in any house they buy.

    And that stake, the down payment, is there to make it painful for them if they default.

    Yes, it takes time to accumulate a down payment… it is suppose to take time. There is no free ride and giving some people a free ride re: sub-prime loan often results in others having to pay for the default on such loans…
    enter the Bailout bills… and the tax burdens it places on generations of tax payers.

  13. VotingFemale says:

    Well the cocaine loans only worked while the real estate market was booming… and over heated… we made money then sold the house when all this started and are sitting on the side lines waiting to buy back in again… switching to renting saved a lot of money otherwise lost in the drop of the real estate market… we did the same thing with what stocks we had after the stock market peaked in 2001 prior to the bear market that followed… and got out before it tanked.

    …Being happy with what we got and not wanting to risk it… on the chance we would make more.

  14. rosehips says:

    ouch karma. that’s gotta hurt owing that much more than the house is worth. I agree vf about needing a stake. the financial system is so flawed. greed is insidious. the fault is with us all.

  15. karmahd says:

    We call it “skin in the game”, when I started you could not get a loan greater than 80% LTV, before it all crashed people with 620 mid score on their FICO were getting 100% financing on stated loans with no mortgage insurance??? It was insane, but the market was buying the product and asking for more. I forgot to mentioned, some of the guys I managed were making 100K per month at the peak of this run, me being in management was making that in a year. The system almost promoted fraud to maintain those levels of income for the account executives, I mentioned that many times but was told to mind my own business!!!

  16. VotingFemale says:

    I can’t own a fault like “greed.” Making money honestly and fairly I dont see as greed, but that’s just me. Real greed has lead to more money lost than gained, in my view. It is the reason con scams work… something for nothing. And i would not keep a bag of money I found… I would turn it in to the police… keeping it, to me is greed. Earning money honestly and fairly isn’t.

  18. karmahd says:

    Renting now would be a blessing, that in fact is what I will probably do with my house put it up for rent until the market comes back. By the way now would be a good time to buy if you have money!

  19. karmahd says:

    Yes that is true, and I was still approving stated loans at Chase up until 02/30/08, but the score requirement went to 720

  20. karmahd says:

    I saw people change applications and increase income to make the DTI work DTI=Debt to income

  21. VotingFemale says:

    $25K negative equity isn’t all that bad, Karma… we are near the bottom.

  22. karmahd says:

    I know, and I refinance my house at the peak of the boom, got a 6.125 30 fixed which was the best rate available so I got lucky in that sense, it will come back, it always does but it could take 10 years. But here in Florida we experienced the effects of the boom sooner, the good is that will should experience the turnaround sooner. BTW P Obama is getting us deeper in Afgan… that will be a mess

  23. ohiobelle says:

    Countrywide Dodd, John Kerry, Barack Obama,
    Hillary Clinton, Paul Kanjorski, Kent Conrad, Rahm Emanuel, Jack Reed, Tom Carper, Barney Fudd, Carolyn Maloney, Melissa Bean, Nancy Pelosi, Stency Hoyer, and Darlene Hooley

    Order of Democratic corruption at Freddy. I think it’s important to list all their names.

    Good morning all!

  24. rosehips says:

    I think making money without doing anything but make a phone call or sign a form is sort of greedy. I am guilty of doing it myself. gambling causes suffering and there are innocent victims.

  25. VotingFemale says:

    Morning belle 🙂

  26. rosehips says:

    good morning belle! Where did you come up with that list?

  27. rosehips says:

    do you have a list with Republicans as well, belle? I need to replace the War Party poster in my bathroom. hehehehehehe

  28. ohiobelle says:

    guys, I left 2 comments that haven’t shown up yet???

  29. karmahd says:

    Rose the republicans were involved as well but not to the level of the democrats. Reason being the demographics of democrats were better served by the lending policies at Fannie and Freddy, the republicans (generally) did not need the sub prime industry but both were involved

  30. ohiobelle says:

    oh well, this my last comment appeared.

    Rosehips, I got this list of names from my empty suit report I did a couple of weeks ago.

  31. VotingFemale says:

    Risking investment capital to make money is legal and fair… and many loose all or some of the invested capital.

    A mortgage company invests its capital in home loans to make money from interest… same thing with stock market investing.

    It’s honest fair and legal… not what I would call “greed.” but again, that’s just me.

    Stealing is greed, something for nothing is greed, cheating is greed…

  32. VotingFemale says:

    belle, you may have refreshed too soon… doing that can flush a comment not yet received by the web site.

  33. ohiobelle says:

    vf, that’s what I did. Thank you.

  34. VotingFemale says:

    btw, you have mail, dear…

  35. rosehips says:

    makes sense karma about the dems and fannie and freddie….the sub-primes is a debacle and I hate to see it.

    and i mean no offense to all the greedy people reading this. hehehehe

  36. VotingFemale says:

    rosehips, you are insufferable!!!


    god, I love your sense of humor!!!

  37. rosehips says:

    lol vf. 😉

  38. Indycoltsfan says:

    What people don’t talk about much when it comes to homes and real estate is property taxes. Property taxes should be rendered illegal and be aboloshed. there are countles senior citizens that lose their payed for homes because they can’t afford to pay the property taxes. it’s a crime. I view property taxes as ground rent from the government. You can own your structure and you will only own the land it’s on if you pay your property taxes. and if you can’t pay the taxes they will take it all away from you.

  39. rosehips says:

    interesting indy. so how would we pay for schools and for the awesome library system that my property tazes pay for, among other things?

  40. karmahd says:

    Well we really cannot get rid of property tax without creating some other sort of tax to run the community government. But I will say this my property taxes are silly 3500 a year on a 250K home??? Need to watch our local governments spending a lot closer!!

  41. ohiobelle says:

    rosehips, you asked how would we pay for schools without property taxes?? What if the schools were privatized? I think that would work. Your thought?

  42. VotingFemale says:

    Indy, I know of elderly people on social security who bought their house 40 years ago… long since paid for and are forced to sell because of rising skyrocket property taxes… and it is a travesty.

    While many rate abatement the monthly property tax is still way past the total of their monthly income.

  43. Indycoltsfan says:

    Rose, Their are other ways to pay for those things. Property taxes have not been arounf in this country forever.

  44. Indycoltsfan says:

    VF, That’s what I am talking about. After you pay your mortgage and taxes for 30 years that should be it. You should not have to pay any more in taxes and how does a nice school system benefit a senior citizen and why should they have to pay for it..

  45. karmahd says:

    I am all ears Indy?

  46. ohiobelle says:

    Indy, I like what you are saying.

  47. Indycoltsfan says:

    It’s criminal the way the elderly are treated in this country.

  48. VotingFemale says:

    hippie girls need to cover their eyes… lol

    all else, have you visited here yet?


    I joined it…

  49. karmahd says:

    Glen used to live here in Tampa and was on a AM station, he made it big on 9/11/01. Funny line back in the day, “who is the Al Kida” and why is he doing this, LOL. Funny line not situation.

    Indy + VF senior citizens get a break in Fla so do Vets, on property taxes, but community costs are not a fixed expense, how would the balance of funds be made up if seniors drop off, my guess increase in the taxes of the individuals that do not get the benefit

  50. Indycoltsfan says:

    You know what’s sad and why we pay so much in taxes? It’s because of waste and corruption and no accountability. You hear stories like this department lost so many billions of dollars and can’t account for it or that department lost money. Hey folks this is our money confiscated from our paychecks and families. It’s our fault that we have allowed this corruption and incompetance to continue and it will not change until we change the players and the new players must realize business as usual is gone and will not return.

  51. karmahd says:

    How about this, a $200000 thousand dollar speed boat for Tampa PD, not one but 4, and all that ever get used is 1 of them, when asked why they had 4 the PD stated as back up???

  52. karmahd says:

    a 4M dollar bomb recovery truck, the PD used to be able to use their police cars on the weekend including gas for personal use, this was cut out. It goes on and on and ON

  53. Indycoltsfan says:

    Doofus Harry Reid said our tax system is contributory and voluntary. Well lets all volunteer not to pay anymore. I’ll bet that would put a fire under their corrupt asses. LOL!

  54. rosehips says:

    vf said: hippie girls need to cover their eyes… lol
    well, i’ll take that as a warning. lol

    little glitch here. would not let my curser above the quote above. ?

    belle, I don’t think privatizing is the answer. I think everyone should have access to a good education. it’s fundamental to our success.

  55. VotingFemale says:

    We have to form up and speak in a collective and big voice and swing our votes together to vote out congressmen/women who don’t do our will…

    and Congress Term limits is a good idea… imo

    no more than 8 years total

  56. rosehips says:

    i think seniors who are poor should be given a break and the rich should pay full property taxes.

  57. VotingFemale says:

    people should earn a good education by being good students… freeloaders who wont work at it needs no free ride.

  58. rosehips says:

    it seems like Harry is right. Many people choose to not pay. It only catches up with them if they hold public office. or do others eventually end up paying?

  59. Indycoltsfan says:

    Where is does the govermnent thinks it’s going to get all the money to pay for all the orwellian stuff they they have in the hopper now? Huh? Oh that’s right it’s the rich that will pay. Really? It will be what’s left of the middle class that will get wacked by these increases. Idon’t know about you but the middleclass is all but gone in this country now. In my view we are a 2 class society now.

  60. karmahd says:

    Yipppieeee, TERM LIMITS all for it, rather than tax cuts for seniors, (capped in Florida) we need to spend less in our local governments, drill down cost cutting to local markets!

  61. karmahd says:

    The haves and have nots

  62. ohiobelle says:

    vf, I support the 912 project. I never miss a day of Glenn Beck. I hope he stops eating so much m&m’s. Have you ever noticed that everything he predicts comes true?? Very scary.
    I also am having a love affair with Sean Hannity. I was thrilled when Glenn came to Fox. Now I only watch CNN for Lou Dobbs.

  63. VotingFemale says:

    old age abatements could be designed to prorate/decrease property tax annually on a basis of length of time the house is owned and age of owner and annual income of owner. people should not be forced out of their house due to old age… it is, in my view, a travesty that this happens.

  64. ohiobelle says:

    Rosehips, Done right, privatization can save money and improve education. It’s being done in a few states and the quality of education has improved. Just something to think about.

  65. rosehips says:

    our local gov is bare bones as it is. they are now looking at cutting cooperative extension which will hurt rural farmers and small business people. They are also trying to raise tazes. I’m talking county level. They are all repubs and they must hate that they have to have a tax raise, but the base is dying and unemployment is extensive now. the mass migration is taking the tax base with it.

  66. VotingFemale says:

    I could just tweak his cute chubby cheeks… he is so real and honest about how he thinks and feels and so well intentioned.

    Pretty soon Obama and company will be zeroing in on the hollywood elites bloated bank accounts that is if Arnold doesn’tt tap them first. LOL! I can’t wait for that to happen and for them to start screaming about it. They probably think spreading the wealth doesn’t include theirs. LOL!

    We DVR his show daily… and I admit I fast forward through the advertisements… (blush)

    but I know them all by heart so… don’t be too harsh on me…

  70. ohiobelle says:

    Rosehips, who are these “repubs” that are trying to raise your taxes?? Do you have a name?

  71. rosehips says:

    belle, i have no doubt that private schools are superior, i know it’s true. I have friends with kids in waldorf schools and other private schools. Wouldn’t it be nice if all of our kids could attend. What would happen to low income students who could not afford tuition?

  72. karmahd says:

    Rose you can send me your tax money. A possible solution to the tax issue is to require a balance budget at the local level. As to areas not having the ability to support its tax payers, I would like to see what they are spending.

  73. VotingFemale says:

    The Hollywood socialists…

    When I want political advice, Hollywood will be the last place I look for it.

    vf, I dvr Beck, Hannity, OReily. I usually am able to watch Dobbs during dinner.

  75. rosehips says:

    yes belle they are all my county commissioners. most are conservative and some are radical wingnuts. They had a public meeting last week about raising taxes. The public reaction is mixed but I think the most outspoken of course don’t want an increase.

  76. VotingFemale says:

    Does everyone know about Deval Patrick? Obama’s speech writing buddy governor of Massachusetts?

    Seems ole Deval is not a happy camper these days… Mass is up in arms over his empty promises of HOPE and CHANGE and he is at risk of even getting nominated for governor in the coming election.

    see: http://www.redstate.com/dan_mclaughlin/2009/03/26/deval-patrick-in-deep-trouble-in-new-poll/

  77. ohiobelle says:

    Rosehips, you asked what would happen to low income students who could not afford tuition?
    They’d get a government voucher so they could attend. Maybe suggest they obtain a certain grade point average to get continued support from government. Look how much money went to education in the spending bill. I like the idea of vouchers.

  78. LisaInTX says:

    Is it just me, or are others seeing also, that almost everyone that is in the Obama admin are the very same ones that CAUSED so much damage to our economy??…and YET, we are “supposed” to believe they are going/trying to HELP us?
    The outrage and audacity of these folks continue to AMAZE me!!!

  79. rosehips says:

    but what are they to do? The biggest wingnut is Merrill Ott and he is an agitator. He organized the “Council of Governments” to fight a Superfund status for the Columbia River. The local gov’t all along the river banded together and took $250,000 seed money from the biggest polluter in Canada, Teck Cominco. They don’t want to draw attention to the pollution because it hurts the local economy. I think ignoring the problem is worse.

    I don’t trust some of the commissioners. They sleep with industry and that’s not right.

  80. VotingFemale says:

  83. ohiobelle says:

    rosehips, I know how you feel. Our mayor “jackass” Coleman has talked about raising our taxes… It will never happen. Way too many people would oppose it right now. No taxes should be raised until our economy is in recovery.

  84. VotingFemale says:

    I don’t know anything about Ott…

    And I will slam any politician who is failing to do the job of we the people

Who in the US is able to sell full auto weapons equipped with grenade launchers and shoulder fire rpg’s. It’s just another liberal fear tactic. And they still call semi auto m-16 look alikes like the ar -15 assault weapons whick is a lie.

  98. rosehips says:

    belle, that sounds like a threat to the highest ranking woman in government. lock your doors…

    Sadly my dad started talking about moving to NZ… no joke today. It’s saying something when France is lecturing the Americans on their “tax” policy.

    Maybe I’ll move to France. I always liked Paris.

    I saw this article in wired yesterday in the coffee shop. It’s on the newstands now so you can’t see it on their website, I don’t think, but it’s reprinted here if you scroll down. It’s called
    Taming the Comment Trolls
    by Clive Thompson

    The first line of the article reads:

    “Obama sucks.”

    this might explain why we are sometimes ignored. There are “comment programs ” that can comments from certain people invisible except to them. interesting. Check it out. This guy seems to be an expert on trolls. lol.

  102. Indycoltsfan says:

    There are over 100 million guns in this country. The government is living in La La land if they think people will give them up voluntarily and good luck to law enforcment, unpeacekeeper troops, or the US military if the govt is planning to send any of them out to collect them.

  103. ohiobelle says:

    I think it’s Obama’s administration that wants him to fail not Rush. He has too many chiefs and not enough indians. All his chiefs wanted his job and are probably still a bit pissed they didn’t get it. Why would they want him to do well?? Maybe they want americans to see Barack wasn’t the right pick.

    Clinton better not use Mexico had a hidden agenda and she better watch North Korea.

    m2, when I was in hs or jr high my dad starting talking about moving the family to Australia. It was an intriguing thought and turned out to be only a fleeting one.

    i know m2, I found it very interesting what they can do to filter out certain things.

  111. rosehips says:

    lol karma

  112. VotingFemale says:

    A presidential Blog Site which filters out anyone who opposes him… lol

    Filtering spam and trolls is one thing…
    Political Filtering is another…

    I offer no Political filtering on this blog site…
    But then I don’t think like Obama and his pre-screened media questions.

  113. m2elena says:

    I’m not into it. Not one bit. Why can’t they just have a flag for “bad language” like obvious slurs. This shizz is too sophisticated, they probably have words like “socialist” keyed in, so those comments disappear. Look at the technology that is inspired by Obama’s YOUNG administration. It’s so USSR for the 21st c.

  114. LisaInTX says:

    Please NAME ONE in the current Admin that does not have a scandalous past or had a hand in corruption in one organization or company they worked for in the last few years or did not benefit from corruption?
    Some of the organizations are:
    ACORN, Freddie Mac, Fannie Mae, Wall Street, Main Street, AIG….too name ONLY a few.??

  115. VotingFemale says:

    ahh… Good Morning/Afternoon Lisa dear!

  116. rosehips says:

    oh no lisa, you made the claim. don’t turn the burden of proof around to me. I don’t have time to research it. lol.

  117. karmahd says:

    But Obamas followers need the word Socialist those wont be filtered!! Lisa they are all corrupt, one thing I did find on the Republican side in reference to PAC’s Bohemer loves to play golf, he has entries from his Pac in the tune of 200K for golf and golf parties! Vote them all out, politics is big business now and has been for years.

  118. rosehips says:

    but if you must….how bout former Wash state governor Gary Locke. I’m pretty sure he wasn’t involved. but I could be wrong.

  119. VotingFemale says:

    Lisa, I dont think the white house cook have been involved in anything scurrilous… but I could be wrong, lol

  120. rosehips says:

    I heard the cook is sleeping around though. heehehe

  121. karmahd says:

    The only people not involved are the military that guard the White House

  122. m2elena says:

  126. LisaInTX says:

    Karma and Indy and VF
    Thanks for your input. I’ve seen several articles and heard the ATF state the weapons are coming from OUTSIDE America and Now Hillary spouting this crap. I’m furious with her on this issue.!! She is no better than Obama and his minions , IMO right now! To think I voted for her!!! Might as well have just voted for Obama as the policy is the same power grab and the same means to take away our rights further. :-{

  127. ohiobelle says:

    Rosehips, Gary Locke??? Come on girl, you know I would call you out on that.

  128. VotingFemale says:

    Hillary is all in, with Obama regardless of her previous centrist politics prior to becoming Secretary of State.

    She does what she is told to do… and it’s either that or get fired.

    I blogged that she should not have accepted the appointment… I would not have.

  129. rosehips says:

    I forget belle, something about the stadium? what do you accuse Locke of?

  130. ohiobelle says:

    vf, She had my vote until she accepted the appointment. She is better than this administration.

  131. rosehips says:

    vf, the gupta announcement is more than a week old. he must have decided it wasn’t worth the effort.

  132. LisaInTX says:

    I still have a tee-shirt that was promoting CountryWide thru the TX Realtors…geez…We had NO CLUE about what they were doing!!

  133. ohiobelle says:

    Rosehips, Locke is in with his special-interest polluter friends….

  134. rosehips says:

    indy, the patriots are our biggest threat now. It’s people like ohiobelle who will be the targets now. During Bush it was the aging cookie bakers who conspired peace in their living rooms. Now it’s revolutionaries in the making and they are profiling you guys as we speak. load up.

  135. karmahd says:

    Oh the gun grab is a big part of the new left, always has been. The ammo issue that you covered I think has already started, a box of 40 cal is now 30 bucks?? used to be able to get surplus for 4 dollars a box. I do think the NRA will step up, but they have lost some teeth in that they really have some far right radical crap coming out, they need to hire more politicians to help them with this. But if the guns are taken or proposed to, I do think you will see some strange shit happen, and not good shit either!!

  136. rosehips says:

    belle, coming from such a tree hugger like you, Locke must be pretty bad huh? lol.

  137. ohiobelle says:

    rosehips, hahahahahaha you said revolutionaries in the making!!!

    Freedom Fighters!!

  138. karmahd says:

    Question: has anyone else noticed how Pelosi, Reed and others have not been in the public eye since the AIG issue and the grabbing of power by bama and geitner?? They are distancing themself for a reason.

  139. ohiobelle says:

    Karma, that is funny you asked that question. Somebody else mentioned that and I think it is because Barack is trying to pass his 3 trillion dollar budget. Pelosi and Reed will only hurt his chances of that happening.

  140. m2elena says:

    does anyone remember campaign-style ads being run by an adminstration/party post winning the White House. I am so TIRED OF PROPAGANDA.

    Don’t think we’ve seen the half of it yet.

  141. rosehips says:

    no karma, I just saw Reid on tv…

    funny, spontaneous whined about vile sex posts in newsiest and nev got her chocolate post pulled. Now spon has a post about some guy having sex with the carwash vacuum. Is that a double standanrd, or what?????

  142. VotingFemale says:

    had to reboot… sigh

  143. ohiobelle says:

    Karma, I don’t think they’d take our guns however they could stop selling the bullets. In their eyes that wouldn’t touch our rights to own a gun; only the bullets.

  144. rosehips says:

    m2, propaganda is a way of life in politics. They are getting more and more savvy at it. I get emails all the time from the dems, but I rarely read them. Ever since I got a free cup for my $15 donation and it turned out to be made of plastic. Dang, it looked like porcelain in the pic. wah.

  145. karmahd says:

    I dont think the democrats want to be associated with the new budget, but will come out of their rat holes when they can get a whiff of the cheeze of public opinion, IE; for or against.

    Rose, once spon came up with the post against weed I threw her on the rock pile with AuntiBy, Spk and others. I want to know what is up with Larena, I think she needs some help!!

  146. VotingFemale says:

    belle… didn’t Clinton 42 propose a $1000 a bullet tax on “Rhino bullets?” It fell flat as I recall…

  147. rosehips says:

    yes, i was disappointed in larena’s anti pot shout out. c’mon. where’s the freedom?

  148. karmahd says:

    Well Larena’s issues appear to go far further than that post, she always posts pictures of her self, and her dog, its a cry for attention, she comments more on her posts than others visiting, and seems to use IReport for her personal validation??? All odd. And Spontanious is very young I forgive her, she posted my birthday she has a chit in my book for that LOL

  149. VotingFemale says:

    Lisa, is it time yet for all out of state Native Texans to return to the Republic and help succeed to once again become the Republic of Texas and offer citizenship to Americans who are fed up???

  150. rosehips says:

    I have had strange pm’s about her. I have not followed her issues but I have heard things in the wind and I believe they both need help.

  151. m2elena says:

    rose, their savvy b/c they have Billionaires buying up organizations and marketing them as grassroots. I’m so disgusted. I’m not anti-democrat. I’m not into labels. But I’m pissed on behalf of Democrat that the leadership sold their party for power. Just another misconception that people think Wall St. is full of conservatives. Madoff contributed 80% of his take to the Democrat Senatorial Committee. Wall street (which is where the horned one, Geithner was birthed) and the power-leadership in Congress are probably a previously undiscovered level of Dante’s Inferno.

  152. rosehips says:

    vf, you are going back to TX?

  153. rosehips says:

    m2, for the record, I am independent but did vote for obama and stilll support him.

    Rosehips, the lefties can write anything they want on ireports and never get in trouble. It’s so stupid that I don’t even like to ireport anymore. I bet that idiot Harvey50 misses me as much as pmobama. Crock of shit I say.

  159. rosehips says:

    I just received word that my sister in law, who is exactly my age, had a heart attack. Luckily, she was not feeling well and was in the hospital when it happened. She was revived but it was very scary. My brother witnessed everything. I think I should go exercise. Although I have my weight in check, my activity level needs work. I know too many people having attacks in their 50’s. We must not let ourselves get so out of shape that our hearts give out. How tragic to lose someone so young.

  160. Indycoltsfan says:

    rose, Let them profile me. I am not a trouble maker and I am not recommending any overthrow or inciteing anyone to violence however I am fully prepared for whatever comes down the pike. Unlike the government I use past history to try to anticipate and forecast future events. The human being although highly intellegent is still basically an animal and like all animals they can only takes so much before they explode in anger and become aggressive and dangerous. I think there are many people in this country that are very close to that threshold now.

  161. ohiobelle says:

    Obama will just provide is certificate of live birth and get away with it. That certificate does not prove he was born in the USA. It only proves he was born. He has never provided a birth certificate to end this debate.

  162. ohiobelle says:

    rosehips, I am sorry to hear about your sister in law. I hope she is going to be okay.

  163. joel707 says:

    Karmahd, yesterday larena claimed she’s a psycologist.

  164. karmahd says:

    Rose I do hope she is ok, and yes us 50+ grey beards need to stay active. My past has helped me in that is was a highly active life style, and I see friends of mine who are the same age who look like old men and have a littany of problems. Get yer butt out and walk LOL

  165. rosehips says:

    belle, thanks. my bro said she is ok but they are confused about the future. I like his wife like a sister. She is overweight and I hope this will be a life changer for her. It must be.

  166. karmahd says:

    Joel I think she might need a psycologist! I have a little background there as well! Histronics

  167. m2elena says:

    I’m a registered Repub actually. That way I can have my voice in the primaries. In my opinion, the Republicans haven’t been very Repubican- so I identify more with Libertarian. But I think the 2-party system is all we’re really going to get to “work with” and so I do not shun it. I do not think all Republicans have a bigoted social outlook, the same as I do not think all Democrats are Socialists. But the Obama Administration is part of the radical infiltration of Communists/Marxists. I will put their ideals down, any day. Every day. I have noticed a lot of Republicans don’t want to identify with the party. If the party doesn’t grow strong, they might as well get out of the way for the Libertarians to take their place. In general, ideals are either Conservative, or Liberal. I’m much more concerned with “business” as opposed to “social”… in fact. Neither party gets “social” right. Democrats use it as a vehicle to blind and mislead (gain power). I wish Capitol Hill would do what is bare bones and let the State take charge for their own. I should start my own party called the Anti-Corruption party. And it WOULD be bare bones and freedom loving.

  168. karmahd says:

    and Joel who are you LOL

  169. rosehips says:

    i am getting my bike out and hope to get my heart pumping. I like walking but I am a bit of a slug; no power walking for me.

    I will go out to the war protest at noon. I want to get the scoop on how the war is financed with drug money and one of the vets I know says he wants to tell ireports about it. stay tuned.

  170. karmahd says:

    I say the federalists should come back or the whigs, but seriously the republican brand has lost its way, the move to far to the right has hurt them, as have the hard conservatives. We need more YOUNG moderates in the party, and by young I mean 35-50, the old men need to retire, any party that pushes for less government will get my vote

  171. joel707 says:

    Just another person from ireports. I dont get on there that much anymore. I was there alot before the election. It was pretty crazy.

  172. rosehips says:

    anti corruption party? sounds like something I’d be interested in. Can I get a job m2? I’ll help root out the bad guys! hahahha

  173. ohiobelle says:

    Rosehips, when I went on heart medicine, I told my doctor that I was suffering from PSS, political stress syndrome.

    Your sister in law just needs to get into a daily routine. I would start with short walks until she regains her strength.

  174. m2elena says:

    yep that’s all I care about. Limit the goverment. You limit power, and the inevitable corruption. Yet now we have the most power-stealing administration in history. Great! //Sarcasm.

  175. Indycoltsfan says:

    I just read an Ireport where the report was calling Obama Uncle Ream-us LOL! Well if that’s true his first name should be peter or perhaps dick. LOL!!

    Indy, funnny man my type of humor!!

  177. m2elena says:

    Ohiobelle! I am shy of 30, and was having some Heart issues with the campaign myself. Then I had to detach after he won… 3, 4 weeks later- the Stimulus had me firing off emails in frantic anxiety to everyone I know again. Er. That’s why I joined iReports. My friends and family were sick of me. 😦 The politics made me insane in October. I really think I went batty.

  178. VotingFemale says:

    this is Joel…


    Good to see you Joel 🙂

  179. m2elena says:

    Hello to Joel!

  180. Indycoltsfan says:

    Lorena, The poster child for the mentally challenged. If you disagree with her she calls you a stalker. He dog is the wierdest looking chihaha LOL! I have ever seen. Here art looks like it came out of a third grade art class and she has so much colegin in her lips it looks like somone sowed a catchers mitt on her face. What a loser!!!

  181. joel707 says:

    VF, Glad to be here! I was working on a post, and got tired and decided to save as a draft, but I must have hit reset because its gone.

  182. rosehips says:

    indy, that’s a little mean. she has been damaged. that i am sure. I love her art! To each his own. It’s unfortunate about her lips. She posted a pic of when she was on the cover of Vogue (mexico edition) and she looked very beautiful. I don’t get woman who need to post provocative pics of themselves on ireports. but again, to each her own…..

  183. VotingFemale says:

    Joel, I am sure your draft is there… wordpress does auto backup to draft every few minutes…

  184. karmahd says:

    Wow Indy tell it like it is!! I kind of felt sorry for her, or I should say empathy. She appears very lonely, as are numerous others that spend 12-16 hours a day on IReport, no outside life leads to a very crabby anti-social individual…

  185. Indycoltsfan says:

    Rose, sorry to hear about your sister in law. I hope she gets better soon.

  186. rosehips says:

    thanks indy…

  189. joel707 says:

    Vf, I’ll check. I’m still trying to figure all this out. It’s pretty cool, but I’m not to quick on the computer.

  190. karmahd says:

    Joel you are now a link on my blog, woopieeee right, now you can die..kidding

  191. rosehips says:

    I try to get out and engage in real life at least once a day. lol

  192. Indycoltsfan says:

    Karma and Rose, I get so tired of her Obama worship posts. She writes like an elementry school student. I thinks she is as dumb as a box of rocks and she looks like a retired hooker.

  193. VotingFemale says:

    Larena and I are friends…

  194. rosehips says:

    I know vf, she’s not religious, but the gods were watching over her anyway.

  195. karmahd says:

    Rose, to pick up screens LOL, god I am brutal sorry

  196. joel707 says:

    Thanks Karmahd.
    Has everybody been checking out all the other post here? I’ve mostly been reading about the immigration issues.

  197. rosehips says:

    larena lives in a different world than the rest of us. Her’s seems so unreal. Concepts are jumbled. Reality skewed.

  198. karmahd says:

    VF, is she OK?? I really am saying that with all empathy, her behavior really is odd.

  199. rosehips says:

    I have not explored the other posts outside of ireport alumni yet.

  200. VotingFemale says:

    I actually don’t mind people worshiping Obama… that is their choice and in a way I can understand why some do, it is hero worship for many and not rooted in politics… so long as they don’t troll and so long as when they engage me they don’t try to put me down to pump up Obama, I am fine with it.

  201. karmahd says:

    Rose speaking seriously that is an effect of some personality disorder drugs, I wont go into depth as to which ones it sounds like but their does seem to be a disconnect, or magical thinking. OK off Larena we have not right to judge really, we all are kind of nuts or we would not be doing this all day long

  202. karmahd says:

    I will put something up this weekend, but it probably wont be political

  203. VotingFemale says:

  205. rosehips says:

    you right about that karma, my theory is that 90 percent of ireporters have some psychological disorder and the rest are jealous. lol.

  206. rosehips says:

    I just paid $110. for my textbook for my new class. I guess I will go pay tuition now. I really can’t put it off any longer since class begins on Monday. no one returns calls anymore. Of course if I am wanting to pay they will be quick to pick up the phone. Isn’t that how it usually is?

  207. rosehips says:

    see you all later!

  208. joel707 says:

    VF, illegal immigration.

  209. ohiobelle says:

    Sorry guys I had to walk away for a while.

    Hello Joel.

    vf, does it make you mad that your post are still up and on most commented?? I didn’t read any of the comments but there are alot. Do you want me to comment for you?
    Ireports is so lame these days. OMG it is just so boring. Somebody needs to turn up the heat.

  210. ohiobelle says:

    Rosehips, nobody is answering phones anywhere these days. They all got laid off. haha

    I’ve honestly had the same problem with a few companies.

  211. joel707 says:

    Ohiobelle, I thought you were going to bring some excitement to ireports, and do a post on grass growing? I’m still waiting.

  212. Indycoltsfan says:

    Sorry VF, If I was a little harsh on your friend Lorena. I just don’t have much time for people that are full of themselves. I have nothing personal against her. These are just my observations.

  213. Indycoltsfan says:

    Karma, I not really a betting man but I believe it ‘sa safe bet that lorena is on some heavy depression medication which is probably causing her dellusional and psychotic behaviour.

  214. karmahd says:

    Sooooo how about that dang Fannie and Freddy, we kind of got off topic… You know the stock was at 67 dollars a share the same year it went to 2 dollars.

  215. karmahd says:

    Indy, I saw somewhere you sold cars, I grew up in that business, my dad sold cars for 30 years, a real good use of his Harvard education LOL, but hey he made very good money!!

  216. VotingFemale says:

    I understand… no problem dear.
    I just see her as engaging in harmless hero worship and really doesn’t know the subtle skills of defending herself without taking things personally.

    There are number of people on iReport I have made friends with who, while Obama can do no wrong in their eyes, understand and accept my opposition of Obama on political grounds.

    I think many would be surprised who they are… and none of them trolled me. A few did at frist but after we understood each other it ended in peace.

    The Political Socialist Trolls are a whole other kettle of fish, altogether. like Ant Person and 444, Harvey, Jane and the rest.

  218. ohiobelle says:

    Joel, hahah I can’t believe you remembered about my grass growing report. I should get started on that immediately. The haters will probably think I am talking about weed and call me a pot head. hahaha

  219. ohiobelle says:

    Indy, I have to agree with you on Lorena (sorry vf). She should spend less time on ireports and more time in therapy.

  220. Indycoltsfan says:

    Harvey 50 has calmed down his attacks lately. I think old davidw must have warned him.

  221. Indycoltsfan says:

    Karma , Back in the day you could make tons of cash in the car business. I wouldn’t touch it with a 10 foot pole these days.

  222. ohiobelle says:

    Indy, I still can’t stand Harvey. He’s saving his attacks for one of us to report again.

  223. karmahd says:

    Yeah Indy, I am in banking and I wish I could not touch it with a 10 foot poll, but nuttin else to do or I would be doing it. Hey maybe I will run for office, yeah thats what I will do, jump on the gravy train!!!

  224. joel707 says:

    Ohiobell, that would be funny. It would be even funnier if we all kept making comments, and get it up to newsiest.

  225. karmahd says:

    Ohio I told harvey he was going to give himself a heart attack if he kept it up weeks ago, he laid off me since then. Kind of like a barking dog, if you claim your space they usually wonder off

  226. VotingFemale says:

    She only commented on my iReports occasionally and then only to say Hi to me and wish me well… she says she sees me as her iReport Mentor… which is certainly flattering… someday she may pop in here to say hi…

  230. ohiobelle says:

    Karma, I told Harvey several times to please not post remarks on my reports but that just kept them coming. The nicer I was to them, the more it pissed them off. Just wait and see with my grass growing report. They’ll find some reason to attack.

  231. VotingFemale says:

    see you next time Joel, don’t be a stranger and I am waiting to see your new WB Blog post!

  232. karmahd says:

    Check this wonderfully helpful post out for calming the masses.


  233. ohiobelle says:

    vf, hahaha. You know they’re going to do that. I swear they’ll start calling me a pot head.

    Bye Joel.

  234. karmahd says:

    Hey Ohio put you’re link on here when you post it we will run up the comments

  235. VotingFemale says:

    they are chasing a ghost with the race card crap…

    There are racists and they are proud of it… trying to twist political opposition into racism is NULL & VOID.

  236. Indycoltsfan says:

    Poor Lorena, If her head was any lighter she would float around like a butterfly. She is probably nice in person just a few bricks short of a full load.

  237. ohiobelle says:

    Karma, hahahahah OMG! The stupid post just made my heart race. Now I’ll be accused of being a no star bandit. What a gay report.

  238. ohiobelle says:

    Okay I am starting on my report. It’s hard and a bit boring to write about grass growing. I am trying to think of a way to bring in my pet rock harvey.

  239. VotingFemale says:

    belle, this pic should keep them busy with the magnifying glasses

  240. ohiobelle says:

    My God VF hundreds of green republicans all standing in a row, they will catch on to that picture!!

  244. ohiobelle says:

    Can you imagine the comments?? Honestly ireports has gotten so lame that this might get 1,000 hits. People will probably think I am giving them tips to growing grass.

  245. karmahd says:

    I have lost all motivation to post on Ireport, the high is gone!!

  246. ohiobelle says:

    This report is going to be so gay that it’s almost too embarrassing to post…

  249. ohiobelle says:

    CNN is probably thrilled that they got rid of the rebels… Anybody that questions Baracks spending spree is considered a rebel in their eyes.

  250. karmahd says:

    Yeah I agree, the mere fact that comment count is the reason for the IReporter ranking is the process, real news is missed!! OH WELL we have our own now!!

    Oh vf that would be so nice if you could do that. I am sitting here hitting my head on the desk trying to figure out what to write. What can you say about grass growing????

  254. VotingFemale says:

    cats will ignore catnip… dogs will only eat the grass and ignore their dog food… catapillers will develop a permanent smile…

  255. ohiobelle says:

    Karma, I was thinking about asking anybody if they see my pet rock harvey in my green grass… something to get them looking at the picture.

  256. karmahd says:

    I like the hybrid idea, this brings another thought, everyone on here should do a joint post, in other words each person write one paragraph for the topic and post it as a group. Hey that is socialism I am sorry!! But really that could be fun.

  257. Indycoltsfan says:

    Here read this. So true.

    Ruben Navarette writes in his column, posted on CNN.com today that President Obama is “flunking economics”.

    To quote his article verbatim:

    “Many Americans are so emotionally invested in the Obama presidency that they consider it too historic to fail. They won’t tolerate any criticism of the president or his administration, finding it easier to simply attack critics. And whatever goes wrong that they can’t defend or deflect, they just blame on George W. Bush. But to many of the rest of us, it’s clear that President Obama is flunking economics. He is trying to do too much at once, and so he is not doing any of it well.”

  258. ohiobelle says:

    vf,what the hell was that??

  259. karmahd says:

    You could do a video of grass growing about 3 minutes and post it, and say this is the obama administrations response to the financial crisis

  260. ohiobelle says:

    Karma, you might be on to something. I could post the picture of the grass and the title would read: DO YOU SEE MY PET ROCK. I could go on and on about how great my grass is and you could post right after me with something like: I FOUND OHIOBELLE’S ROCK. Can you add to this idea??

  261. karmahd says:

    HMMM, I was thinking of one post with a paragraph from each of us, topic to be determined also who would post it and answer the questions!! but a chain post could be fun LOL

  262. ohiobelle says:

    Karma, maybe we should do the caterpillar post first. That was so gay and I can’t stop thinking about it. That should drive them nuts. I am going to do that right now. Is that okay vf?

  263. karmahd says:

    Indy it is a sickness

  264. ohiobelle says:

    Karma, I like your idea the best.

    Karma said: I was thinking of one post with a paragraph from each of us, topic to be determined also who would post it and answer the questions!! but a chain post could be fun LOL

  265. karmahd says:

    I am in, lets see who else is interested and who will face the crowd

  266. VotingFemale says:

    Here it is belle…

    Title: iReports; Boring as watching grass grow

    They say a picture is worth a thousand words… and the above picture speaks volumes about how boring iReport has become.

    Political iReport bans have dulled iReports to death… we may as well be watching grass growing for excitement.

    By the way, there are hidden subliminal vicious nasty anti-Obama messages hidden in the grass above …just to spice things up.

    The other thing about that grass? It is a secret genetic clone between cannabis sativa and normal Fescue which can be grown undetected in the front yard and no one will notice.

    With that said… the caterpillars will smile a lot, birds will sing sweeter and you get to keep the yard clippings. 🙂

    Try not to fall asleep waiting for something exciting to happen at iReport.com.

    You are expected to report about your spice rack collection and what you did last weekend.


  267. ohiobelle says:

    Okay I am posting the caterpillar. This is so gay. hahahaha

  268. karmahd says:

    You are the PRO VF

    I nodded off thinking about how exciting iReport has become lol

  275. ohiobelle says:

    Okay I am waiting for it to appear. I will post the link when it does. vf, I changed a little and just said there are hidden messages about obama. I think we are on to something fun here and I don’t want to blow it hahaha

  276. karmahd says:

    OK VF, lets see how this one goes and maybe the group idea with each of our styles, gotta think of a topic though

    ah man I haven’t had this much fun in a long time. It sucks I have to leave soon. We meet out with our friends once a week and that time is upon us. I will try to check in later.

    Karma VF, you guys are the best! Thanks for a great day.

  293. VotingFemale says:

    caio Belle!!! hugs

  294. karmahd says:

    No problem I am having fun

  295. karmahd says:

    it was pulled

  296. ohiobelle says:

    guys did they take my post down???

  297. java66 says:

    ohiobelle, you are too funny. I love your post.
    I wonder what everybody else is thinking. LOL!

  298. karmahd says:


  299. karmahd says:

    no it was pulled

  300. ohiobelle says:

    Thanks java, how could they pull my post and not spons post about having sex with a sweeper!!

  301. VotingFemale says:

    ava66’s post too funny!

    I wonder how long it is going to take before we all get emails LOL, oh well

  303. ohiobelle says:

    I wish I could stick around but I have to go. I am upset they didn’t keep it around. I think somebody should post that.

  304. VotingFemale says:

    karma I am looking at it now! and refreshed it…

  305. karmahd says:

    OK let me look

  306. ohiobelle says:

    vf, did they put it back?

  307. karmahd says:

    well you might be able to see it but it will not allow me, I think they are reviewing it, and I expect to get an email soon

  308. ohiobelle says:

    under my ireports it says that it is currently unavailable. Thank CNN!
    Sorry guys. Have fun gotta run!

  309. VotingFemale says:

    can you still see it belle?

  310. ohiobelle says:

    No It just says not avail. We should just blog this! I am sorry I wish I could stick around.

  311. karmahd says:

    VF I think we have a problem, Ohio see if you can pull it up I cannot, and it does not show, for me, unless I have been blocked for some reason, I cannot even find your profile!!

  312. java66 says:

    I can’t see the post.

  313. karmahd says:

    yeah its has been pulled or all of us are blocked maybe VF can see is since she is not signed on??

  314. VotingFemale says:

    that is so wierd… it does not show up on ohiobelle’s iReport list but I can still load it though the comments list is 13 minutes old as of the last comment… which was from java66

    Java66 Java66 // 13 minutes ago

    Oh’ good idea ohiobelle.
    By the way I accidently gave you 5 stars, sorry.

  315. karmahd says:

    Wonder if Ireport is looking at us blog?? Hmmm

  316. VotingFemale says:

    that I am not logged into iReports is the only thing i can think of… an that they pulled it and I can see see it must be a software bug…

  317. karmahd says:

    No email yet for me, I guess that kind of kills the other idea. I am not posting until the star system is fixed anyway. Note: if I get a chance that is!

  318. VotingFemale says:


    I doubt it… But the only reason I can think of that they pulled it was it touched a nerve about Political Bans and if they weren’t banning on Political bias grounds they would not be sensitive about that.

    And if Team iReport is viewing my blog, then they are smaller minded than I thought.

    Hi Team iReport!!!!

    Remember meeee????

  319. karmahd says:

    OK I can still comment on other posts

  320. karmahd says:

    Well it really was more funny than offensive, I just dont know anymore I am confused

  321. VotingFemale says:

    Karma… the ban for political reasons and use flimsy excuses to do it and don’t like it people call them on it.

    They had no basis to pull that iReport except their own paranoia.

  322. java66 says:

    I wonder how many people saw ohiobelle’s post before it was yanked?
    ireports has no sense of humor.

  323. VotingFemale says:

    It is just further exemplifies their mindset…

  324. karmahd says:

    all I can think is that they gave the link for this blog and saw that who wrote it? Or if it was offensive due to the fact that IReport was mentioned and called boring?? I really dont know, but I am sure we will all find out. I did not see Ohiobelles profile so that could be a problem

  325. VotingFemale says:

    I can see ohiobelle’s profile… I just checked.

  326. VotingFemale says:

    try logging out if iReport and view the post…

  327. VotingFemale says:

    what did it say when you checked ohiobelle’s profile?

  328. karmahd says:

    Nothing showed up

  329. VotingFemale says:

    Karma… maybe they took it off line and are examining the picture looking for the subliminal Obama messages…

  330. VotingFemale says:

    well… what ever the reason, it has to be a flimsy one.

  331. karmahd says:

    My bad she is still there

  332. VotingFemale says:

    that does not mean she is not banned… my profile was visible for three days after they deleted my account. She may be banned.

  333. karmahd says:

    I really do not know, but it only lasted 13 minutes so someone is watching this and notified Ireport, they might not have come here but that is the only reason I can see for them pulling it. The post was not contraversial, all it can be is what I said before. You would think they would have better things to do than to watch you/us, pretty FUCKING paranoid if you ask me, pardon my language I am pissed

  334. karmahd says:

    Has she been warned before?? and she did edit the post remember she said that so what is the difference if the info is taken off a web page or blog?? and how is that against any TOS?? HmM I am getting very mad now

  335. VotingFemale says:

    paranoia is the symptom of people guilty of something…

    I have been pretty sure the trolls keep tabs on my blog… that is how much I am hated by them… and frankly I expect it.

    Just like I wanted him to be! 😉


  336. VotingFemale says:

    eh… that they pulled it I find comical…

  337. karmahd says:

    You know, Tons of wash stated the other day that SPK did some work for Indy, not our indy, and posted it, so the only thing I can think it is due to the author that it was pulled.

  338. VotingFemale says:

    so you think it was pulled because of my suggestion of a possible block of text?

    that would be interesting!

  339. karmahd says:

    why else?? to me it was no more offensive than any of the Obama supporters who cry foul all the time??

  340. VotingFemale says:

    belle will likely write them for an explanation… I will be interested to see the excuse they use… and likely they will not even offer their reason and ignore her question if they have not already banned her.

  341. VotingFemale says:

    What possible rational basis could they possibly have to deletean iReport published by someone which has my words in it? Show me the Rule that justifies that action!

  342. karmahd says:

    Well we shall see, I have not had any problems with the people at IReport, just the IReporters, but I will be very curious as to why that was pulled as well…

  343. VotingFemale says:

    They have my IP address and know for certain I live in Massachusetts…

    And they have ohiobelle’s IP address which they know for a fact is in Ohio… so they know that I am not ohiobelle and do not have access to her account… for if I did use someone else’s existing account my IP address would show up under her every one of the comments and posts while I used it.

    What I think… I think they were looking for a reason to give her a warning… and one only has to look at her iReports to understand why.

    When three are racked up… poof.

    Meanwhile JaneInSane is running around with a new account trolling away… as usual…

  344. VotingFemale says:

    Karma, don’t let it get to you… it was strictly small time… par for the course, imo.

  345. karmahd says:

    Doyou know Janes new name?? I though you lived in Ohio?? Dont know where I got that from. Not really sure other than what I have said three times, this is a public blog and they could checked what was written on here and someone wrote to Ireport and ratted her out. We shall see, I am off to do some drinking, I have had a tooth ache for three days and it is killing me today so time to kill the pain, I will check in over the weekend. I really want to know the reason it was pulled??

  346. karmahd says:

    Agreed I am just pissy due to my sore tooth

  347. VotingFemale says:

    go to the dentist, Karma. It is not going to go away, dear.

    Jane? –> http://www.ireport.com/people/SunshineSue

  348. karmahd says:

    I went yesterday and I either have to get it pulled or a root canal he fixed it temporary to see how it would feel, well lets just say I could rip someones head off right now if they mess with me. Big Bear has a sore tooth. I am off talk to you soon Karma

  349. VotingFemale says:

    See ya later… need to go see what to fix for din-din

    hope you feel better…

    I am sorry I missed belle’s ireport. too funny vf. We should all work on something together next. We might need that secret room. Hey I have a photo to share, of special interest to mimi….brb. I will post it on my wordpress page.

  353. rosehips says:

    I played around and added some pics. I wish there was just a link “my photos” but I embedded them in a post. The first one is for mimi as I was in a second hand shop today and came across a Shriners guy. I was tempted to buy him for 5 bucks but decided just to take a pic. I have a little prank in mind but don’t want to say in case of trolls….hehehe

    I have a new report on Ireport….a rant on Hillary..hahaha…..I’m going to add it here too.

  359. karmahd says:

    Jeeze rose you come on two minutes after I leave. You waiting for me to go, LOL

  360. LisaInTX says:

    Boring as grass? hahaha…Well it sure is getting that way. I posted several comments on angry pompous little mans latest report and they were gone when I checked back later…hahaha…I posted nothing but data facts to show who got the most from campaign contributions–Dodd and Obama ranked the highest,…now WHY would those FACTS get deleted except BIAS?? I beginning to really NOT like it over there—just NOT worth the effort to post if your comments get deleted that are NOT in any form or shape against the TOU….they are really becoming Nazi-like with the red button.

  361. karmahd says:

    Agreed Lisa, getting silly and this blog is being watched by the trolls as well, so speak freely LOL I am off to bed 12 here

  362. arlenearmy says:

    I tried to post my wordpress blog.. I will have to spruce it up tomorrow. Seems like I’m having trouble getting it organized w/picture. I posted a blog entitled: tea parties or pitch forks. Im not sure if I’ve duplicated it.

    So VF.. I need some help. I will log on tomorrow. The shoulder is giving me me trouble, as Ive got roughed up in therapy.

  363. arlenearmy says:

    I just went to the ireport of Ohio at
    and its down.

    Its VERY APPARENT, that the ireport trolls ARE lurking around this blog. They aint got the guts to comment here. I strongly suspect that those trolls are sending the url to davidw & howling like a broke dick dog. So he yanked Ohio’s “grass post”. I have no doubt that this is what has happened.

  364. arlenearmy says:

    OK folks ….. exchange emails. Don’t let the left hand know what the RIGHT hand is doing. I can pretty much tell ‘WHO’ is relatiating on the sly at ireports. Since that person may be lurking & watching this blog, Im not gonna mention his/her name.

    Somewhere on the net, the grass ireport must be cached because when i rest my mouse pointer on the url that is posted on this blog, i can see a thumbnail of that ireport page.

    I have already detected that they are gearing up to jack w/another conservative ireporter. I sit back & watch ireports from time to time.. and I don’t have to log in or make a single comment on ireport.

    The rest of this theory I’ll send to VF privately. So to the LIBERAL ireport trolls & you know who you are: “…. dont tread on the Patriots”.

  365. arlenearmy says:

    Another HINT to all mind-like ireport alumnis on this blog: The ireporter who is trolling & complained about Ohio’s grass ireport IS MORE LIKELY the person who did NOT post a comment on her ireport. It is MORE LIKELY the same person who has a SEVERE personal vendetta with VF & Lisa.

    I am saying this publicly on this blog because I don’t have every one of your email addresses to let you all know.

  366. mimimimi2009 says:

    hi guys… I am a bit away from my computer… these days… on a business trip….

    check this one… funny


  367. VotingFemale says:

    Morning Everyone!

    Of course! this blog is being read daily by many and has been since the day it’s link was posted at iReports. Just look at the hit count. That is the purpose of a blog… to be read by as many people as possible.

    But there really is nothing the Socialists and the brainwashed Lefties can do but lurk and fume that Opposing Views are not under the control of them or their Dictator and that Opposing Views are working; people read them and facts presented and can not help but see Obama for what he is… bad news for America and the world.

    People’s eyes are being opened daily thus we must continue educating others and get this guy voted out of office. It is working…

    And as a result, their Socialist Party is going to get a reset in 2010 elections then in 2012.

    Obama is worse for the DEM party than Bush ever was for the GOP. That is how it goes when an extremist like Obama is let loose to run amok like a Socialist dictator.

    The handwriting is on the wall.

  368. VotingFemale says:

    mimi, that was an interesting iReport… and the lack of a sense of humor is very telling.

    He used a Bush joke by the DEMs years ago, replaced the name with Obama and people get defensive… and turn on the personal attack mode.

    Their “How dare anyone ever say a single word against Barack” button is their Achilles heel.

    And, the really interesting part? they can not un-wire it.

    It is a conditioned response like Muslims rage over any remark made about the prophet Mohammad, thus they launch a personal Barack Obama Jihad.

    silly wabbits…

  369. mimimimi2009 says:

    hi vf..

    yep… good comparison with the Muslims… Balance and sense of humor have died and replaced by fanatic idolatry … another extremism is born …. like we needed another one to contaminate this world… but things can get better…

  370. VotingFemale says:

    Morning mimi 🙂

    There will always be a “Barack” either center stage or in the wings preparing for center stage.

    We the People have to be on the look out for such extremists regardless of their Ideology.

    It is easy to recognize a Socialist if one is not a liberal and it is easy to spot a right wing Extremist if one is a liberal.

    I sincerely am a Centrist and have now moved to the right of center and I look hard at politicians while filtering out things that obscures one’s perception when their own Ideology filters changes what they see and do not see.

    Case in point:
    I put Pat Buchanan in the slot of a dangerous Right Wing Extremist and many on the right might agree with things he says and disagree with other things he says yet many conservatives do not see Buchanan without their own conservative filtering affecting their personal perceptions.

    I do my best to listen and observe with as little bias as I can muster to get a clear picture of powerful people in politics. And, like Barack casually and truthfully outing himself as a Socialist Wealth Spreader, Pat Buchanan has outed himself as an Anti-Semitic and being understanding of Hitler at an Ideology level.

    After a pronounced backlash of public opinion, Buchanan attempted defending himself against charges of Nazi sympathizing, by later calling Hitler a “monster” guilty of “ugly actions and discriminatory laws”.
    It was already too late to try to back peddle… just as it was for Obama to back peddle his Socialist Wealth Spreading mindset that day in front of Joe the Plumber’s house.

    That the socialists are going to such extremes to suppress opposition to Barack, bespeaks their own sense of vulnerability… if Obama were actually good for the country, few would feel the need to attack, and attempt to suppress, those who take issue with Barack’s behavior… his opposition would be seen as lacking in creditability and thus ineffective and not mainstream.

    That is why I base my blog posts on facts… and add commentary as a private citizen of what I think about those facts.

    It is powerful… and I am not an extremist… rather a middle of the road American who has America’s best interests at heart.

  371. rosehips says:

    the whole systems stinks. People profitting off of their connections. Lobbyists manipulating politicians. secret deals struck. inebriated with money and drowning in moral decay, the trusted abuse their responsibilities. I feel so cynical right now. If I was confident that Obama would eradicate corruption, I would feel better. That’s a big job. Maybe he should hire Ralph Nader. lol.

  372. VotingFemale says:

    I rewrote my comment prior to yours, Rosehips. You may want to go back and read it again.

    Barack is in the tank with selected big businesses.. a Politician can not rely solely on the bank account of a George Soros. Case in point: The Obama-General Electric Corp connection… and there are others as well. GE is a left wing media giant who owns NBC and MSNBC who’s on air campaigning for Obama and against McCain/Palin is known world wide. The Obama associations with other Media giants like CNN is also well understood by many.

    At the bottom of it all is true greed for power… and money=power. It is the heroin of politics.

  373. karmahd says:

    Morning gang, I see everyone is fistey this morning, did we ever hear from Ohiobell as to her status??

  374. rosehips says:

    I really don’t buy GE being left wing. what a joke. look what they did to the hudson river. that is not a leftist thing to do. i understand them backing obama and wanting to be there to make sure they share the wealth. they are players and do not attend the same parties as the leftists I know, that fo’ sho’…

    lol @ vf mustering unbiasness. please tell me your secret. teeheehee.

  375. rosehips says:

    hey karma!
    nothing from belle this morning. hey, I guess I missed all the fun yesterday!

  376. VotingFemale says:

    not yet… this is Saturday and thus a busy day for her… I expect she will be on at some point this afternoon or evening, as the case may be.

    The grass ireport deletion is a tempest in a tea pot, in my view. That CNN does things like that surprises who? not me…

  377. rosehips says:

    did belle get banned?

  378. rosehips says:

    I am wondering if I should post a report about censorship?

  379. karmahd says:

    Well nothing new on my IReport status, no emails, so she probably did not get banned unless she had previous warnings and they felt the post crossed the line, but as said numerous times yesterday that post was not that bad as far as contraversey

  380. VotingFemale says:

    You are confusing the past behavior of a corporation relative to pollution with the now head of GE. It is the person in charge of GE I am talking about.

    rosehips wrote:

    I really don’t buy GE being left wing. what a joke.

  381. VotingFemale says:

    Good morning and how is your tooth doing Karma?

  382. VotingFemale says:

    GE Chief Executive Officer Jeff Immelt is the socialist in bed with Obama and the Jeff Immelt (GE) and Obama connection is as deep as it gets.

    For example…


  383. rosehips says:

    still don’t buy it vf. GE is a huge capitalistic corp. They may be in bed with obama, but I don’t think they are left wing. They just know who the boss is and want to kiss up to him. What is leftist about them?

  384. rosehips says:

    see, they are just bloody capitalists who are trying to profit off of the “cap and trade” regulations that are coming. And their coming is going to generate heated debates, imo.

  385. VotingFemale says:

    They? GE is not a They… it is a company run by a CEO and the Board of Directors.

    Did you know Jeff Immelt is actually now a part of Obama’s Administration as an appointed Obama Economic Advisor?

    Make no mistake, the Board of Directors are in it for the money and Obama is thowing them a huge financial bone in the Green Technology business… and the GE CEO Jeff Immelt and the Board of Directors threw all their weight behind getting Obama elected and in no small part by the power of NBC and MSNBC which is owned by GE, thus controlled by GE CEO Jeff Immelt and the Board of Directors.

    Now if you just don’t want to believe it, I understand… but these are backed up irrefutable facts, nonetheless.

    I will stop with it… not my job to change people’s minds… if they change their minds, it will be a willful act on their part.

    And we all get to thing the way we want to. 🙂

    Thanks for asking VF the tooth is not hurting now but will have to come out Monday. I killed the pain pretty good last night. I am going to do a post on Ireport and will copy it here, the line is going to be about blind mass following, or lock step following, sure I will get many hits due to the topic and the word being spread of what we discuss on here. Anyone think about twitter for talking about issues that might not want to be seen??

  387. rosehips says:

    don’t forget the kool aid karma!

  388. karmahd says:

    HMM KUELLL AID yuck did not like that as a child and now that I am an adult dislike it even more. (yes I know what it means)

  389. rosehips says:

    vf, I think we are just playing semantics. I was challenging the leftist label but I think we agree they are sleezy capitalists who are sleeping with obama and would jump right in bed with anyone else they can influence, if it serves their interests. GE had foresight in developing green technology and by controlling the left leaning media.

  390. VotingFemale says:

    I found a twitter this morning about the Grass iReport from someone named UncleMythMan who turns out to friends with someone named “Aunt E.”


    I have a solution for private conversations… it will be distributed via e-mail..

  391. VotingFemale says:

    Understood Rosehips… yeah… an issue of semantics… understood. I personally see no real distinction between political socialists and corporate officers who get into bed with them… both are motivated by power and money.

  392. VotingFemale says:

    you can load that web link then press F3 to do a search on the page for the string: iReports; Boring

    the search string is entered at the bottom of the FireFox Frame.

  393. VotingFemale says:

    I also happen to know UncleMythMan is an iReporter and I know who he is but will not divulge his iReport identity… that is my personal secret.

  394. karmahd says:

    OK waiting on my email, did not quit what to look at on the blog post for UncleMythMan, but will check it out later

  395. rosehips says:

    yeah, didn’t know how to see the rest of his twitter comment. the link to belle’s post of course is useless

  396. karmahd says:

    OHHH is that what I should have been looking for. Hmm littttle slow this morning… NumbersDude actually posted an article critical of Gethner today, bit of a move to the middle by him.

  397. karmahd says:

    This is Ladyinthehood’s post, not sure what the motivation is here as well.


  398. VotingFemale says:

    NumbersDude and I have had a few short convos of late… he is an Obama Voter who is not above taking issues with Obama and was outspoken with at least one iReport an comments that Obama picked Hillary as SOS when that was leaked to the press.

  399. karmahd says:

    Wow I have been using firefox for years and did not know that search function, jeeze As said by Rose the link shows it is not available

  400. VotingFemale says:

    His twitter is a broadcast to atwitter distribution group…

    You will never find me using twitter or anything like it… nor Facebook or MySpace anything like it… ever.

    The net trail those things leave is too wide and deep.

  401. karmahd says:

    Yes he started out being open and fair and then went way left and now appears to be back in the middle, he PM’s me on all his posts, or most, and I kind of thought that was a complement.

  402. rosehips says:

    he pm’d me once about a comment I made. He has made a comment or two on my posts but not much. His other half has commented on my posts lately.

    I have never twittered. I have both myspace and facebook to keep tabs with family. I don’t use them much at all.

  403. VotingFemale says:

    Karma, yeah… the F3 key is pretty much a universal search key… works in a lot of programs and most word processors as well.

    A few short cuts I often use with text is

    Ctrl-a – select all text
    Ctrl-c – Copy all selected text
    Ctrl-v – paste text
    Ctrl-x -Cut selected text and save it in the paste memory buffer.

    I do a lot of programming thus short cuts speeds up programming…

  404. karmahd says:

    Well you can add a wall of security for about 100 bucks add another router and then split the signal. Also you can bounce IP’s there are all kinds of ways to make it harder, but they can still find you if so inclined, so knowing that I don’t really care if they know where I live in a general way. They cannot track back to an address without some high priced equipment and legal access, but I am sure some have that as well.

  405. karmahd says:

    cool VF I cut and pasted those short cuts

  406. karmahd says:

    send me a hint on email as to the communications plan

  407. VotingFemale says:

    I have to entertain potential backup plans. lol.

  427. lynn144 says:

    Hi everyone! I am glad to be added. I would have been here sooner, but I don’t have my own computer at the moment. I’m using a work computer, so I’m very limited to how much time I can get on line. Looks like I’ve missed some fun.
    I’m getting kicked off the computer, so I guess it’s bye for now.

  428. rosehips says:

    hi lynn! bye!

    Please take your time and study this material!

    I will still be rather away from my computer for the next 3 days.

  435. mimimimi2009 says:

    sorry wrong link… one sec

  436. rosehips says:

    interesting mimi
    I don’t know exactly what to think about that guy. He seems quite charasmatic.
    vf, check out this website. scroll down and you’ll see some graphics you’ll like.

  437. rosehips says:

    nevenera got banned. She came back as sexylips but that id is gone too. I hope she visits us. I wonder who else they are banning.

  438. VotingFemale says:

    Morning rose and mimi 🙂

    mimi you are now on the iReport/Alumni Community list. Welcome and so happy to see your name there! I visited your blog and left dome comments.

  439. VotingFemale says:

    nevenera got banned…. damn

    Thanks for the information…

    I sincerely hopes she comes over. She is way neat and we were friends…

    It was also as if she were tempting them to ban her…

  440. rosehips says:

    they are dropping like flies. Who will be next? Numbersdude was pretty hostile. perhaps he will be next? ha!

  441. rosehips says:

    yes, nev was tempting fate for sure. she knew what she was risking.

  442. VotingFemale says:

    What Icke is talking about in that article is founded on facts relative to the methods used to persuade masses of people down to a subliminal level…

    Theses techniques are far from unknown and while not the authority on the subect Icke seems to be, they are used by : L. Ron Hubbard (Scientology) and a whole host of people including David Kersh, Jim Jones, Adolph Hitler, and many other including televangelists, and select politicians from every party down through the ages.

    That is one of the first things I zeroed on about Barack and have zeroed in on others who delved into mass mind manipulation…

    I have always had a sharp radar for that… always, even as a teen. It is an instinctive alarm… it is one of the reasons I never entertained going into sales of any kind. Sales is an honorable profession but just not for me.

  443. VotingFemale says:

    Numbersdude is passionate about his politics; that is for sure.

    There are two “cults” near here and their communities are almost directly across the Columbia river from each other. They both have celebrations on July 4th, and even play music for each other across the river. Funny, one is a conservative christian community at Marble Flats and the other is the Love Family, spirtual based Christian hippy communit, not conservative. Marble are very politically involved, the Love Family not so much. The Love Family has the most beautiful organic gardens and vineyard. They also have a winery and it is the best place for parties and events. I have many friends who live there. They are more or less the remnants of a community that was very big in the 70-90’s. Scandal rocked the family in the 80’s and they lost their ranch over on the coast a few years ago.They were led by Love Israel. Most are from wealthy families who were searching for an alternate family. Love used to be a California stock broker. Ha!

  446. VotingFemale says:

    Lisa, you have mail

  447. rosehips says:

    why doesn’t cnn ban this poster?

  450. rosehips says:

    what is your’s set for?

  451. VotingFemale says:

    gotta run for a while… need to go make Sunday brunch.

    too bad about nev… hope she finds our community.

  453. karmahd says:

    The cult of the Dougnuts, ohmmmmm, say it three times doughnut, doughnut, doughnut, ohmmmmm.

    Sorry to hear about Nev I was watching that yesterday, she does seem to be an interesting person, she would be nice to have over here.

  454. rosehips says:

    I will miss nev on ireports. she is one of my very favorites. Always fun, and/or provocative. She did push the envelope and cnn is wielding a heavy hammer.

  455. karmahd says:

    sexylips // 9 hours ago
    Report violation

    This is Nev as well, same picture, but her profile is still up, she posted on Fortunados post. If anyone knows her maybe you could invite her over here.


  456. rosehips says:

    sexylips is no longer a valid id. once you id yourself, someone will report you. She has this url.

  457. rosehips says:

    I must go do several things. vf, I want to hear what you served for brunch. karma, how’s the place looking? You inspired me to clean today. It’s last day of Spring Break! New term starts tomorrow.

    Has anybody thought about asking Gramps63 to come over here? He seeme like a decent guy.

  500. karmahd says:

    all kicked off of IReport

    Here is an update!







    This is all in the space of a week and most have been over the last 24 HOURS.

  501. karmahd says:

    the above is from Oldschools post

  502. LisaInTX says:

    Hey…just fixing to head to town and saw this. I Was just on Sam’s report an hour ago??? WOW
    Martin is GONE??

    JaneInMaine has flatlined….

  503. VotingFemale says:

    Jane respawned as SunshineSue

  504. VotingFemale says:

    Java, feel free to pm gramps63 with this url and a personal invite from me dear…

  505. VotingFemale says:

    Java/Karma/anyone, feel free to pm gramps63 with this url and a personal invite from me

  506. rosehips says:

    vf, I did email gramps and I will contact the others for you…

  507. joel707 says:

    VF, I just tried to send the link to your post to algirl61, but it wouldn’t let me paste it in her pm.
    What am I doing wrong?

  508. VotingFemale says:

    I can PROVE FOR A FACT HERE AND NOW THAT CNN iReport allows the left wing trolls to respawn with new user accounts and keep on trolling, OK?

    I watched real time as the following iReporter was banned for posting three in a row iReports personally attacking me within a span of 30 minutes.
    I watched it as it happened.

    This was the person who did it:

    Click on that link and you will see it is a deleted iReporter profile and now shows: “This profile is no longer available.”

    By the next day that person, a1000words, respawned with this account:

    I sent e-mail to davidw informing him of the respawn and HE DID NOTHING ABOUT IT. I CC’ed myself and kept the e-mail… as I have always done will all e-mails between me and davidw. I have retained all correspondence.

    And a1001words bragged in comments about doing it and being allowed to get away with it.

    I fully expect CNN to turn a blind eye to any left wing troll who re-spawns and keeps on trolling. But CNN will track down and continue rebans of any who opposed Obama and was banned.

    The a1000words/a1001words incident is a glaring example.

    As I have said before.. CNN can do what ever they want to do with their iReport website. They have that right.

    karmahd says:

    all kicked off of IReport

    Let me know when you have that done and please don’t be a stranger. Any who can pm rhayes please pass this information to her.

  515. joel707 says:

  521. VotingFemale says:
