Using the Homeless for Public Policy Change

Want to have an effect on public policy and create some real change? Well... do you? If so, follow the lead of many prominent Republican and religious leaders and spread your message on the cheap using the homeless. Republican and religious leaders across the country understand how powerful this form of advertising can be and are joining forces to impact social changes in our communities using God's little leftovers. If you have as little as $10 (or a bottle of cheap malt liquor) you can have your message read by thousands of voters on busy street corners, grocery store parking lots, highway exits - and yes, even crack houses.

You can't serve two masters, Juan Williams.

One of Those Masters Gotta Let You Go

Late Wednesday night NPR (National Public Radio) gave its longtime news analyst Juan Williams, a person whom I agree with eighty percent of the time, a well-deserved boot out the back door. Mr Williams made some very Fox News like remarks on the Fox News Channel, on that race bating, anti-Muslim, fear mongering show of Bill O'Reilly, called The O'Reilly Factor. Mr. Williams has been the Fox broadcast News token 'liberal' for years, serving as a Fox News political analyst, while being a NPR news analyst, serving two masters, and collecting two pay checks.

Voter Suppression GOP-Tea Party Style

GOP-Tea Party Telling's Hispanic-Americans Not To Vote

Those down right sneaky Republican-Tea Partiers have put a front group out there telling Hispanics not to vote.

The Republican group Latinos for Reform (Yeah, reform, right) had planned to run the commercials in Nevada, Florida, California, Texas and Colorado through the Nov. 2 election, with the voter suppression message --"Don't vote this November. This is the only way to send them a clear message," the ad's narrator announces in Spanish. "You can no longer take us for granted."


The ad was run in the Nevada, on a Hispanic television before the station yanked it off the air

What's In That Tea That Tea Partiers Drink?

The wife of Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas, the man who allegedly sexually harassed Anita Hill, has reopened a nineteen year old wound, and is reminding America, just what kind of an alleged creep we have on the high court.

Old Clarence's wifey phoned Ms. Hill, left a voice mail message on Ms. Hill's phone, asking Ms. Hill to apologize for calling Mr. Thomas, a then-Supreme Court justice nominee, in so many words, a dirty, low down rotten creep.

In 1991, 19 years ago, Ms. Hill testified at Mr. Thomas confirmation hearings. She bore witness. Many of us Americans believe that she spoke the truth..

Oh, Ms. O'Donnell Needs To Go To School,


Yesterday, Tuesday, in a debate, Christine O'Donnell, the Tea Party-GOP candidate, running for a U.S. Senate seat from Delaware against the Democrat Chris Coons, had a debate before an audience of legal scholars and law students at Widener University Law School. Ms O'Donnell challenged Mr. Coons' views on the teaching creationism in public schools.

Mr. Coons said that the Constitution does not permit religious instructions in the public schools, but folks can have their kids instructed in religion in private schools. It's all a matter of the separation of church and state.

Does Joe Miller Love Joe Stalin Too?

Joe Miller, that Tea Party dude running for a U.S. Senate seat from Alaska, is making news. He likes the way the East Germans secured their border.

The HuffPost Hill reports -- "Making Anschluss with stupidity, the Alaska Senate candidate told a gathering late last week that the former communist state's approach to border security is imitable. Very imitable, indeed. 'East Germany was very, very able to reduce the flow," Miller said at a town hall on Sunday. 'Now, obviously, other things there were involved,' he added 'We have the capacity, as a great nation, obviously, to secure our border. If East Germany could, we could.'"

Way to go Joe. I don't think too many lost souls are escaping from Hell either, but we don't want to heap praises on the devil, do we?

The Aqua Buddha Victim Says: He did it!

The lady says Randy, as in Rand Paul, was / and might still be a heathen -- the lady, who, when a coed, attending a Christian college, Rand Paul tied and bounded -- as part of a college prank? The lady who was forced to bow down and to worship a heathen god. That lady told the Washington Post that Jack Conway's so called "Aqua Buddha ad," mentioning the incident, was "kind of to the point."

Nicolas Sarkozy's Louis XVI problem

President of France, Nicolas Sarkozy, seem to have a Louis XVI problem. The people of Paris and in cities across the country are in a "Storming of the Bastille" mood. King Nicky -- President Sarkozy -- has decreed -- Well, his government has proposed that the peasants, the workers and everybody else must work longer. Retirement age is proposed to be raised from sixty to sixty two. The young people of France have taken to the streets.

Reports the Associated Press --

Very bad advice, stupid advice -- Don't vote

The Huffington Post reports that, "A new group is airing an ad in Nevada telling Hispanic voters not to vote."

Really?. Of course!. A new group?!

People who tell folks not to vote must want folks to be like the three monkeys: Don't See, Don't Hear, Don't Speak. People who don't vote aren't seen, aren't heard and they have no voice. They do not speak

Methinks there is more to this "new" group and to the "Don't vote," political ad, that has been put out by the president of Latinos for Reform, Robert Desposada, who has been described as "a conservative political consultant and political analyst for Univision."

The Huffington Post reports that, "he said the ad is a sincere effort to express Hispanic frustration with the Democrats failure to deliver on immigration reform."

Jack Conway Has Come To The Fight To Win

In the Kentucky U.S. Senate race, the Democrat Jack Conway and the GOP-Tea Partier Rand Paul had a debate a few days ago, and the fall out from that debate continues to fall. Mr. Conway called Mr. Paul out and Mr. Paul cried foul. Last night, Chris Matthews of MSNBC invited Mr. Conway onto his show, Hardball with Chris Matthews, essentially for Mr. Conway to explain himself. Mr. Matthews wanted to know why Mr. Conway called out Mr. Paul? Mr. Matthews questioned whether calling out Tea Partiers is something Democrats should do. See the video.

Gay Bashing Tea Party Style

The Tea Party is making a science out of gay bashing. Christine O'Donnell started and fueled a rumor that her opponent in the Delaware GOP primary, Mike Castle was gay, and challenged him to 'put on his manly pants.' Sharron Angle during her one debate with Harry Reid told him that he should 'man up.' Carl Paladino questions Andrew Cuomo's manhood. These Tea Partiers are taking slurs from the same attack sheet. That Tea Party crowd, juiced up by the so-called religious right wing, are trying to label Democrats as being unmanly for supporting gay rights.

Yesterday on NBC's Meet The Press in a debate with his Democratic opponent, Sen. Michael Bennet from Colorado, Tea Party-Republican Senate candidate, Ken Buck, "compared homosexuality to alcoholism."

Mr. Paul Has A 'Heathen' Problem

In the Kentucky U.S. Senate race Tea Partier-Republican Rand Paul took to quoting Scripture. Well, as the old folk say: 'Quoting Scripture is a heathen trick when cornered with truth?'

Mr. Paul's Democratic opponent Jack Conway has an ad up reminding the voters, of Kentucky, of Mr. Paul's past descent into heathenism. Last night, Sunday, during the debate between the candidates, Mr. Paul demanded an apology, because Mr. Conway's campaign was telling the truth about Mr. Paul's past -- or is it his present? Mr. Paul does want to end the federal tax deduction for religious charities. Mr Paul took the truth telling personal, called the truth slander.


Murdoch to America: Shut your mouth. I'm making money.

Yeah, Fox News Is Making Money for Me, America.

Rupert Murdoch answered his critics at the News Corporation annual shareholders meeting in New York this morning, Friday. To those who questioned his decision to help finance right wing Republicans with a one million dollar donation to the Republican Governors Association and a second million dollar donation to the Chamber of Commerce, he had scorn. He all but blew his nose and gave them the finger. To those who criticized Fox Cable News -- He answered them in his letter to shareholders.

Media Matters report, Murdoch wrote:

Tea Partiers Boast Social Security May be Phased Out

In this morning, Friday, edition of the right-wing on line journal, The Daily Caller, there is the boast that enough Tea Partiers are set to win seats in the mid-term elections, that the Tea Party "stands a good chance of establishing a sizeable caucus to push its agenda in the House and the Senate, -- to put pressure on Republican leaders to phase out Social Security and Medicare in favor of personal savings accounts."

The Koch Brothers: Tea Party Tricksters

The Koch Brothers, Charles and David, the secretive billionaires with John Birch Society roots, are big backers of the Tea Party. Using GOP activists, religious, right-wing kooks, the brothers fund the Tea Party to protect their vast business interests. See the video.

The Tea Party movement really is the invention of tricksters, the scam of con men. It is not grass roots. It is a carnival of trickery, a wicked scheme to fool ordinary and frightened people, who are pressed by the economy, into thinking that the only way to get out of this economic mess is to return to power the folks who created this mess.

Carl Paladino Is A Phony.

Another Phony Baloney Tea Partier

Carl Paladino or put-on Carl, the religious, anti-gay, pro family values zealot, who sends pictures of women having sex with animals, and sends out racists email, is losing support among the religious and cultural bigots. Not because of his fondness for porn; or his racists email. Those things are old news, but because he is suspected of not really truly being a gay basher at heart, but a dude who only bashed gays to appeal to the bigot vote.

Reports the Tea Party mouthpiece, Fox News -- Rabbi Yehuda Levin has withdrawn his support from Mr Paladino --"says Paladino doesn't have any backbone and bowed to political pressure."

I Feel Old

I just spent the day talking to young people. Correction: Very young people. I have a hard time remembering what it even feels like to be, what, 17, 18, 19? When I was a kid the biggest thing we had to worry about was nuclear war, which isn't exactly comforting but it's also really abstract. Worrying about Russian bombs doesn't factor into everyday issues. When I was that young everybody had a job. Everybody had insurance. We weren't even in a real war anymore. Kids in their 20's today, it may look like they've got it easy because they all have computers and cell phones and things like that, but the vibe I got from the room today is that they're pretty upset.

Bill O'Reilly hates Muslims, American Muslims Too

Earlier today, Thursday, Bill O'Reilly, a Fox Cable News channel resident bigot, race baiter, hate monger supremo, brought his wing nut act to The View, the ABC talk show. His bull was too much for two of the ladies of The View, Whoopi Goldberg and Joy Behar, who walked off the set. Bill, the bag of anal gas that Rachel Maddow properly labeled a race baiting f, O’Reilly, proclaimed, exclaimed, inflamed that "Muslims killed us on 9/11." See the video.

Muslims? One billion Muslims conspired to kill us on 911? The millions of American Muslims, most born in this country, were in on the plot? Is that what this Mr. O'Reilly believes? Or is he just being his old porn effin self? In the old days he wrote sex porn, now he's in to hate porn.

Tea Party Revolution: Elevenses

I don't want to give anyone the impression that I hate the Tea Party - but, I HATE THE TEA PARTY! They are a group of people that are up there on my list of disgust with with Fred Phelps, Bill O'Reilly (P.S. see The View?), and my personal favorite person to despise - that retched Christine O'Donell.

I have often wondered why the hate is so strong for people who think they are doing so much good. I have come to the conclusion that it doesn't matter how much good they THINK they are doing - they are trying to send us back to the Reagan Years - and although I was just barely alive during that time I hated every moment of it.
