Passing of Earl Weaver and the Republicans

The great manager Earl Weaver passed this weekend. He wanted his epitaph to say "the sorest loser who ever lived." Sorry Earl, that epitaph has been stolen by the entire Republican establishment.

Dog In The Crowd

I think I saw Seamus in the crowd in D.C. today. He looked happy, and vindicated. Thanks Seamus.

Lance Armstrong Books Moved

Lance Armstrong books moved to fiction section in Australian Library. That starts a trend, how moving all of Woodward's books from the Shrub years to the fiction section also. Better yet, the trash.


Need Some Assistance

How do you place a video into a post say from Youtube. thanks

Not just the link, but the video itself. Thanks

Tea Party Battle We Are Engaged In

Against Sandy Relief, for guns for everyone, against assistance for the poor, against Single Payer Health Care, for secession, for restricting women's rights, for elimination of the Voting Rights Act, for letting the United States default, for never cutting a dime from the Defense Department, for torture, and against the Violence Against Women Act.

To paraphrase Mr. Churchill: never have so few, done so much damage, to so many.

This is not the Battle of Britain, but the battle for the direction of the United States Government.

Prevail We Must.

Outrageous Intrusive Government Regulation

FAA grounds new 787 after safety concerns are raised. Just another example of that heavy handed government regulation that interferes in our wonderful free market system.

I am sure that Boeing would have grounded these aircraft on their own.

Tea Party Members need to book all their next flights on these aircraft as a means of protest.

Alternate Reality Crowd Takes New Twisted Turn

According to this professor some elements of the Newtown massacre have a "synthetic" quality to them.

WHAT? Synthetic as in contrived.

26 dead. 26 graves. 20 children's graves. This guy will get a new show on Faux News, no doubt.


Republican Long Term Strategy

The way it went and goes:

Reagan gets elected and simultaneously demonizes and de-funds government. He uses his 8 years to plaster the federal bench with like-minded corporate welfare judges. The judges, using the precedent of the Air Traffic Control Strike begin to remove the labor unions from our political system. Labor Unions find it more difficult to resource their efforts and and organized labor activity drops greatly over the next 20 years. These judges play a great role in keeping alive the impeachment efforts against Bill Clinton and consequently, with the aid of the Republican Supreme Court we get the Shrub for 8 years. The Shrub continues to destroy good governance, "heck of a job Brownie," so that in 2008, after the economic meltdown, when a Democrat is elected Tea Party Thugs are able to build a forest fire against government, and not the Wall Street Banksters. The Republicans, seeing their ground gain electoral efforts being destroyed by Obama's election team get Citizens United passed so that corporate money can overtake shoe leather election efforts. The Tea Baggers and their corporate paymasters can't steal the Presidency, but manage to help state republicans gerrymander their districts so that the Tea Thugs hold onto the House of Representatives, despite losing the popular vote. It seems with this hold onto the House they can force the government into default and then blame the government. Their answer will be to privatize all activities the government has "failed" to do after the self-inflicted wound of the Debt Ceiling default.

Their strategy is diabolical, but can be defeated. An all out effort, Presidential election year effort, to rid the country of the tea party thugs who control the House. In addition, President Obama must make a priority getting his judges through the Senate. These two things will go a long way to derail Republican long-term plans. Just my thoughts.
