1990-ish gopac(newt's pac) mentions book, "tax payer's tea party"

newt's ethics violation investigation is posted: http://ethics.house.gov/committee-report/matter-representative-newt-gingrich

I think it's the 3rd link down; they all open .pdfs.

Also remember to check out, ”Language, a Key Mechanism of Control” also from newt's gopac.

If you ever have time, click and read at each of the 4 links available at the link above. You'll see 'republicans for a change' and other fun and entertaining (that was sarcasm) ideas catapulted by gopac and very apparent today.

Though newt wasn't the first to come up with many of the strategies listed, I'm pretty sure he's the only one, so far, who has put the right-wing ideology in handbook form. I could be wrong about that, of course.

Any similarity to language and tactics being used today, in 2012, is purely intentional.

1993: When the repubs & rush forced rush on the troops' airwaves

The Pentagon did a survey about Armed Forces Radio programming. The results of the 50,000 troops surveyed included .02% who wanted limbaugh's spew on their radio and only 3.9% wanted any talk radio. The troops wanted more music and sports; not more talk radio.

In the usual republican way of 'supporting' the troops, 70 republicans, led by Rep. Robert K. Dornan (R-Garden Grove) and Sen. John W. Warner (R-Va.), made a PR nightmare for the Pentagon with the aid of limbaugh and his dittoheads, of course, squealing about rush's First Amendment right to have a stage, a megaphone, a captive audience, and to make millions from his 'free' speech.

Ignoring 99.08% of the troops, rush and the republicans forced rush into the AFR programming line-up.

The following year, the repubs in congress would make rush an honorary member.

Here are two links to a couple of the stories from that time. I was there. It was ugly.

There are a few more details in the articles linked below.

Filtered, bottled, or tap water?

Hi all.

I followed a link from GD. No, I won't talk politics here.

I notice many have concerns about our pet's food but I don't see a lot about the water they drink. As I was reading the threads about food and pets' problems with digestion and elimination I got to thinking about the water we provide and wondering if others had noticed a difference in your pets' health by changing water sources.

As I thought of this I realized that our tap water here; Las Vegas, NV; has a long and ugly history with the quality our tap water. We have elevated levels of perchlorate in our aquifers. We were a big manufacturer of WWII ammunitions and such and the industry was 'kind' enough to leak into our very limited water sources here in the desert.

If your pet experiences food issues or presents with digestive problems, do you also change their source(s) of water?

Could I get a realty/mortgage/forclosure expert to check my work, please?

If you would look at the property records linked to below and just let me know if I've read them correctly.

It looks to me that it was a purchase, then a refi, then an auction then a transfer from one mortgage servicer to another mortgage servicer. As I said, please check my work. Thanks.

The records in question are here: (broken link removed on edit) Result Starting with the purchase date 12/13/2007 to current.

Please let me know what I've missed.

Oof! That looks like too much clicking. Oh well. I'll leave the OP in case someone has time.

I would like to dedicate this song to piperlime and all those marketer types who agree with them...

and anyone else who agrees with their advertising and would take us back to those days.

With a hat-tip to Are_grits_groceries for bringing this wonderful ad agency and their wonderful ads to my attention in Piperlime Ad Tells Sweatpants-Wearing Women They'll Send Men Running and to obamanut2012 and Sarah Ibarruri who brought Women's self-loathing is big business and supports a global capitalist system to my attention.

From Burt Bacharach as performed by Dionne Warwick, I present to you the 60s rendition of Wives and Lovers so that we can all return to the hairy, scary, pie-in-the-sky 60s/70s where 'man' thought he could go to the moon and Americans had something called 'ingenuity.'

Hey, little girl, comb your hair, fix your make-up, soon he will open the door,
Don't think because there's a ring on your finger, you needn't try any more.
For wives should always be lovers too,
Run to his arms the moment that he comes home to you.
I'm warning you,
Day after day, there are girls at the office and the men will always be men,
Don't send him off, with your hair still in curlers, you may not see him again.
Wives should always be lovers too,
Run to his arms the moment he comes home to you.
He's almost here, hey, little girl, better wear something pretty,
Something you wear to go to the city,
Dim all the lights, pour the wine, start the music, time to get ready for love.
Time to get ready for love, yes it's time to get ready for love,
It's time to get ready, kick your shoes off, baby...
