Sunny Sunday



Stole this from C&L, thought you guys might like it too, except Gerald of course but it's a free country. BIG O seems legit to me and as far as I'm concerned can have the job right damn now! Get that lying cheating bunch of mafia wannabes the hell out of DC!

McCain ain't looking so good lately, seems over-torqued on the campaign trail. He is old and if he isn't careful could pop a vessle and HucKKKabee would be number one. At that point Micky Mouse could run against them and win.

Keep pulling for BIG O to make it to the top slot, he's a shoe-in.

Pert-neer 30 minutes of video there,

Coffee in the corner and day olds on the side.

Get fired up here at DWF!

Be civil tho.

Hey Den,
I posted on yesterday's. The caucuses here were awesome last Tuesday. I couldn't get near them. There was a traffic jam in New Brighton. Can you believe it? It went from Long Lake Road and 694 to Mounds View High School which is the stretch between 694 and Snelling. And you know the traffic was coming from the other way too. We had traffic jams all of the Twin Cities area. I called my mom and told her while I sat in my car. I just kept say "This is beautiful."
We, the people, are back and we're going to kick some ass.

Jeanne said...

That is so laughable. You want to be related to somebody cool. Can you imagine what Obama's face looked like when he first heard the news?

Jeanne said...

I've been reading a lot about cities going "green". I think it would be great if we made the cities we are rebuilding in Iraq (because of Bush's stupidity) could be built with the best technology. Make em green. Get the country on the right track from the get go and they will be less likely to want to destroy it. Of course you have to get he insurgents out of there, you know the ones Mr. Bush invited in.

When Obama spoke at Clemson U, he spoke of some of the things Bubba, while "defending" Hillary, had been saying about his "fairy tale" stances on Iraq.

"Well, none of us can hand-pick our family..." he deadpanned, "If we could, do you think I'd have Dick Cheney for a cousin?"

HA!

While it may be a beautiful sight, people congesting the roadways in order to get out and vote, it certainly speaks to our nation's complete inability to make voting a fair game for all, including the transportationless, the invalid, the elderly, the homeless and those living on the fringe of society.

To dis-include those people, who have so much at stake in an election, including their health and their very lives, is far more unforgivable than it is to just under-estimate the number of voters and have too few ballots on hand.

Hillary turned on the WATERWORKS again last night...

We know for sure, now that there's another New England Primary today!

Jeanne said...

Hajji,
I agree 100% with our voting problems. I see and example of the issue everyday at my clinic. We took the Urgent Care away from my clinic which was close to a huge population of elderly and people with no transportation. The elderly generally can't drive at night and have no desire to read a map to get to an urgent care. That meant that to get to an urgent care they would need to use hospital facilities or somehow get a ride to one of two urgent cares which are not on a bus line and clear out all the way to tarnation. It's an example of the way those in power think...they don't when it come to the needs of the poor and elderly.

Jeanne said...

When Edwin Muskie did that it marked the end of his campaign. He was weak. I guess with Hillary it's compassion.

Gerald said...

Let me share with you some of Obama's rhetoric. To paraphrase Obama, I KNOW THAT I CAN GET CLINTON'S VOTERS BUT I DON'T KNOW IF SHE CAN GET MY VOTERS. These are buzz signals and buzz words that Obama has been spewing from the get go. It is easy to blame the Clintons for dirty tricks but Obama uses the dirty buzz words.

Hillary had a tears in her eyes for a veteran. Well, if you read the voting record for Hillary on helping the veterans, she was rated the highest among the candidates by the veterans. Hitler McCain's record was deplorable. The veterans and soldiers were only cannon fodder for him.

Gerald said...

Men fear women, especially an intelligent woman

Hillary has more cajones than most men that is why they fear her.

Gerald said...

Today, right wing values include rejection of the feminine-- not just women, but the whole spectrum of feminine archetypal ways of seeing, living, thinking. Bush and his machismo offer undereducated men who have lost their jobs through globalization and outsourcing a dose of viagra to make them feel more masculine.

Hillary is a huge threat to their sense of self, sense of power. There's nothing rational about it.

Until the left faces this reality-- that part of winning with progressive, liberal values includes changing men's and religion's reactions to the feminine-- the left's strategy for success will be unsuccessful. That's a challenging assignment. Just look at how so many religious organzations are built upon "values" that reject equal rights and treatment for women. Southern Baptists, the Catholic Church, Islam, Orthodox Judaism-- they all require different and not equal treatment for women. Most, if not all of them, argue that women are better off that way, with more power in the home, protection from men, etc.

Gerald said...

Unlike the indigenous tribes and south american cultures, which fell to the missionary armies, the Muslim world has fought back against both the Christian evangelism and the secular media assault. Combine the two western forces of cultural change and you have something that may seem quite malevolent to major portions of the Muslim world. When Bush says they hate our freedoms and our democracy, there IS some truth to it, but it is also our Christian evangelism, our hypersexualized television and movies and our cultural values which involve very different rights and roles for women.

The road to equal rights and equal opportunity for women has not been easy and will continue to be a challenging one.

Mr. Opportunity

Gerald said...

Examine Mr. Obama’s proposals for Health Care, energy, education, Social Security or any other macro policy program and you will see that Mr. O’s thoughts are aligned with the people who put up most of the money for his campaign - Corporate America! Mr. O would privatize all or part of each of the aforementioned government programs. Oh – you missed that part? Let’s take a look.

His health care program is neither Universal nor Single Payer and would leave out at least 15 MILLION Americans, while leaving the corporations in control. Nor would it provide for the future healthcare needs of the young Americans who are currently swooning over his candidacy. In fact, like his distorted energy policy, which embraces dangerous nuclear and polluting coal as primary energy sources, Gen-X, Y & Z’s will end up paying dearly for the tune this pied piper is downloading for free to their hard drives. Generations of Americans, used to racking up enormous credit card debt, have no idea what this purchase is going to cost them.

Then, there is the fact that Mr. O pointed the finger at all the other candidates who voted to allow Bush to invade Iraq and yet when the time came to give BushCo permission to invade Iran, Mr. O couldn’t find the time to show up and vote against it. His track record in Illinois and in the Senate has followed the same pattern; when crucial votes are counted and its time to take a stand: where is Mr. O? As always, he’s missing in action. Mr. O subscribes to that old Clinton/DLC dictum; stand for nothing other than rhetoric, move to the right and call it the Third Way – an end to partisan bickering.

Under the guise of being all things to all people, Mr. O is heartily solidifying corporate America’s control of the political process in the name of - you guessed it, change. It’s no surprise that clever advertisers have once again figured out how to sell the same ole - same ole as something new. Young Americans say that they are enthralled because Mr. O gives them hope. What they perceive as hope is.... a placebo. They believe they are seeing Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., Bobby Kennedy, Kanye West and John Mayer all rolled into one - here to save the day. In actuality, they are staring at a mirage cleverly adapted to reflect their hopes, dreams and desires while picking their pockets. Buyer beware.

DO WE WANT A GUTLESS OBAMA AS PRESIDENT???

Hitler McCain's theme song on his road to be president

Gerald said...

Hitler Obama is not change for the better or hope for Nazi America HE IS A PLACEBO.

HITLER OBAMA WILL ALWAYS BE MIA (MISSING IN ACTION)!!!!!

WHEN THE TOUGH VOTES ARE TO BE COUNTED, THE CALL IS "WHERE IS OBAMA?"

Gerald said...

Obama, you need to have cajones and I can say that you are no Hillary because Hillary HAS CAJONES.

Gerald said...

I have previously said that Nazi America needs to wake up before it is too late. I am sad to say that Hitler Obama has the nomination and he will win the general election. Nazi Americans slept while Hitler Obama stole the nomination.

carey said...

Fired up? It's Sunday morning still, let's relax and read the paper.

What paper? None out here anymore. Of any merit anyway.

Jeanne,

Goodness, what good news. This is what Hajji's talking about, the spirit out there. Excellent!!!!!!!


One thing that's come out of this mess so far. Participation and interest are up. That's the real goal, partcipatory democracy.

Hajji,

You're incredibly right on. The traffic jams also point to something much more important. We reached capactiy and beyond with population growth. Problems constantly arise from overcrowding.

All the symptoms of a sick, malignant capitalism combined with too many people. Yikes and a half.

Gerald said...

WHERE IS OBAMA DURING THE COUNT ON THE TOUGH VOTES?????

IN OBAMA DO WE HAVE ANOTHER QUIVERING SCARED RAT IN THE CORNER LIKE HITLER BUSH?

involuntarily logged out said...

A pox on all their houses.

Don't care for any of 'em.

Hajji said...

Obama up 57% - 42% with half the caucuses reporting from 8 inches of blowing snow in Maine.

I am humbled by their determination.

David B. Benson said...

Only 8 inches? Must be a nothing-to-mention in Maine.

:-)

Hajji said...

Benson,

Many times I've fled Boston, once the heavy, wet crud started falling there, driving north through the wee hours, just to make "first tracks" in drier, lighter stuff at Sugarloaf, USA.

This time of the year the snowfields are open, the only lift-service above-treeline skiing in the east...cold enough to squeak your edges in the snow. Great views of Katahdin and Baxter, the Northern terminus of the Appalachian Trail...

Oh, yes...the Sugarloaf Brewing Co...they're pretty to look at, too!

Hajji said...

SUGARLOAF, USA

David B. Benson said...

Too bad.

Anti-war group collapses

Hajji said...

WOW!

What a weekend for Obamaniacs!

First he beats Billary in Louisiana, Nebraska, Washington...Tonight Maine...all by HYOOOGE margins!

...and the cherry on the snow-cream this Sunday...

He beats out Bubba for a GRAMMY!

The GRAMMY Award for best spoken word recordin, "The Audacity of Hope: Thoughts on Reclaiming the American Dream" beat out Bill's
"Giving: How Each of Us Can Change the World".

This is Obama's second Grammy, the fist was 2006's "Dreams From My Father," an audiobook for a memoir first published in 1995.

Hillary got one in the 90's for "It Takes a Village".

So that's Obama with 20 states, Hillary 10, Obama with 2 Grammys,
The Clintons with but 1 from more than a decade ago.

2-1

Pretty much the margin of victory this weekend, all around.

DEN said...

Coincidence? I think not.

tytandanmar said...

I think the McCain victory has turned the tide on the Democrat side. I think democrats as well as independents and moderates leaning democrat see Obama as the choice with a chance to beat McCain. I agree. While I am a conservative, I can't muster tne energy to get out of my chair against Obama. I actually like the guy. But nominate Hillary, I will be at the voting booth pronto.

tytandanmar said...

My prediction .02

The money has already begun drying up for Hillary. It will be getting worse soon. Obama has proven he can win in red states as well as blue. The writing is on the wall. People held back on Obama because of their perceived lack of his electability. I believe the man will win the democrat primaries and will be president come Jan 2009. McCain is facing problems with his base that he will not and is not capable of overcoming. Go Obama!

DEN said...

One last note before I turn in.

People have been watching and waiting to see who floats to the top.

It appears Obama is it, so many want the current bozos out, he represents a fresh start.

DC has been stinking too long and is in need of airing out. Too many crooks gaming the system.

Ok threw out the coffee and Spike ate the donut bits, good boy Spike!

Till the AM then!

Alan said...

Someone awhile back, think it was Carey, mentioned Micki and where has she been. I meant to comment then, that she had mentioned to me in an email that she was gonna chill for a while and not comment, but she'd still be reading.

K, I'ma tell y'all what I liked hearing about us Dems. Both sides supporters were confortable voting for the other candidate if he or she won. It was either 84 or 87%, forgot which, from both sides. As in, Obama supporters would happily vote for Clinton if Clinton won the nomination... and vice-versa with Clinton supporters.
The repugs sure can't say that.
And even Geraldo at Fixed News mentioned the numbers turning out, dems by tons more than repugs.
So yeah, Dems should have the White House and both houses of Congress this time next year... let's hope we add to each house's majority.
Gerald, two questions... If Obama wins the nomination, will you vote for him like most of Clinton's supporters? and
Is it all or nothing for Clinton, with you? Meaning, how would you feel about a vice-president Clinton? (no way, it's president or nothing... or yes way, that sounds interesting).
Just think if our side was united, no in-fighting, sitting back waiting for the repug opponent, watching them beat the shyt outta each other. can I get a "hell yeah" ?

Hajji said...

A word about Hillary's "crying".

Funny how she didn't shed a tear (in public, anywhoo) until the pundits started talking about her being "too hard" and not "feminine enough" just before the New Hampshire primaries.

So far as her "crying for a VETERAN", where the hell was she when all the mothers, wives, children, fathers and husbands' lives were in the balance?

She was voting to abdicate congress' CONSTITUTIONAL DUTY to be the SOLE body that DECLARES WAR to a son-of-a-bitch adolescent (R)esident and his War-Mongering hoard of Defense Contractor-controlled PRICKS!

Still waiting for an apology for all the tears WE've shed...

...Still waiting

...Still

What? Another elephant in the room?

Could start a circus.

Got-2-go-post-sumpin now.

Hajji said...

Alan,

Re-my vote/campaigning for Hillary, should she get the nod.

I'm in a position now that I have to believe she will NOT be on the ticket, in any way.

I don't know HOW I'd VOTE, should she be, but I do know that I wouldn't be spending every day off driving, phoning, canvassing, politickin' for HER, like I do for Obama.

It takes a belief in ones conviction to be an effective campaigner (at least as a volunteer) and I do know I don't have that for Hil.

Does it make me a "Blind Faith" person?

I guess I just couldn't "Find my way Home" to Hillary.

"...Come down off your throne
And leave your body alone
Somebody must change
You are the reason
I've been waiting so long
Somebody holds the key
Well, I'm near the end and I just ain't got the time
Well, I'm wasted and I can't find my way home.


Come down on your own
And leave your money at home
Somebody must change
You are the reason
I've been waiting all these years
Somebody holds the key
I'm near the end, and I just ain't got the time
Oh, and I'm wasted, and I can't find my way home

But I can't find my way home
