Super Monday




The thick plottens!

See what happens when AHnold goes to the FOOTball game without his lovely wife?

Yup, Maria gave her endorsement to BIG O. Must be some interesting stuff flying around the Schwarzenegger household today. It's Super Monday so lets listen real close, hear that? the sound of the polls humming away in a mad attempt to say, 'who's on first?'

BIG O might wipe out Ole Hill, Mc-nobrain is all thats left of the repug gameplan, it's fourth down and goal to go, will they go for it, or attempt the field goal?

We will see on Super Tuesday, stay tuned!

Good morning DEN! Here are two eye-opening articles. Enjoy.


Hillary And Monsanto

Obama And AIPAC-A Love Affair

DEN said...

Say what?

Democrat Hillary Rodham Clinton said Sunday she might be willing to garnish the wages of workers who refuse to buy health insurance to achieve coverage for all Americans.

The New York senator has criticized presidential rival Barack Obama for pushing a health plan that would not require universal coverage. Clinton has not always specified the enforcement measures she would embrace, but when pressed on ABC's "This Week," she said: "I think there are a number of mechanisms" that are possible, including "going after people's wages, automatic enrollment."

Clinton said such measures would apply only to workers who can afford health coverage but refuse to buy it, which puts undue pressure on hospitals and emergency rooms. With her proposals for subsidies, she said, "it will be affordable for everyone."

@ RAW

Forced payment? Wage Garnishment?

Forced to pay insurance companies is a birds nest on the ground for them.

Guess we know who butters her bread eh?

Hitlery's Universal Health Care Plan- Buy It Or Else! Ya gotta love those Clintons!

You need a injection of humor there sourpuss!

Den, I knew the freako was Alice Cooper.

Call me a sourpuss if you want. If you think those commercials rated a laugh, you need an injection of......

micki said...

Sayonara to peace and tranquility. hahaha

DEN said...

Me paranoid? Naw!

Here's a vision of the not-so-distant future:

-- Microchips with antennas will be embedded in virtually everything you buy, wear, drive and read, allowing retailers and law enforcement to track consumer items - and, by extension, consumers - wherever they go, from a distance.

-- A seamless, global network of electronic "sniffers" will scan radio tags in myriad public settings, identifying people and their tastes instantly so that customized ads, "live spam," may be beamed at them.

-- In smart homes, sensors built into walls, floors and appliances will inventory possessions, record eating habits, monitor medicine cabinets - all the while, silently reporting data to marketers eager for a peek into the occupants' private lives.

Better keep fixing the old stuff, the new stuff is going to narc you out.

Here is a 5 minute video of an Islamic Jihadist in the making. Pay close attention to the girl, she is trouble brewing. And keep in mind, Obama and the nurturing Hillary are OK with this.

They Hate Us For Our Freedums!

DEN said...

Another 'inconvenient truth' oppression by the biggest bullies in the ME with blessings from the good ole USA!

Does anybody care? Apparently not!

It occurs constantly and still we give the thugs more money with 'no strings', our tax dollars at work!

Carey said...

Thank you Sal, I shall read them in a while. Got stuff to do all day today.

Woke up thinking about poor Tom Brady and the crap the loosing quarterback and team must endure today. What a game Alan, what a game!!!

I think we're headed to a convention. We're going to come up even in this tomorrow, maybe. No decision I expect.

Micki,


Call me a sourpuss if you want.


Those commercials yesterday were horrible. Face it guys, the quality has fallen tremendously. They are set to appeal to the young stupid male phenomenon that women abhor. No Den, they were not funny, they missed frequently. It was a bad show for Madison Avenue.

I tolerate alot of that type of thing while I watch sports. This year, they topped themselves with stupidity and an all around despicable contribution to male culture.

Grade for commercials: F.

Ads reflects their society, unfortunately.

Carey said...

Den,

Yes, Hillary skirted the idea of garnishing wages in relation to health coverage. I think its a miniscule problem for either of them at this point.

The momentum has started. Grab the popcorn, or in Den's case, pretzels and tomorrow evening--we shall see "Whaaaaaaat's up"!

I can't get over something guys. It seems miracles are happening and have been happening since Ken died. Obama may get the nomination or Hillary. Wow. That's an effin miracle.

Carey said...

Den,

Your roundup of surveillance everywhere for consumer sales pushes? I have been thinking about that manipulation since it pulled me so far down at Christmas.

This is hard stuff to ignore. It's everywhere and constantly affects your mood. This is actually quite serious, this intrusion into our head and personal space. It fucks us up completely. It's all the time and we don't even realize it. We're are constanty fighting the intense power of suggestion and persuasion. That's got to cause severe cognitive and emotional upset.

DEN said...

....and a loss of 'sense of humor'.

Tsk, tsk tsk.

DEN said...

Somehow we have to muddle through the latest bullshit extravaganza being poured on our selves day after day.

Save some space without politics for you brain to wrap around.

Little can be done to effect change individually, you vote and hope everyone else votes intelligently.

We already know that there are plenty of idiots willing to vote fascist across the board, there is nothing we can do to stem the tide of stupidity especially when the MSM feeds the BS by the bucketload.

So hang in there, vote your conscience and forget about it, refuse to be drawn into the abyss of self pity and doubt, grab the bootstraps and move on.

Watch something funny, if you cannot find anything funny keep looking, balance good against evil or be lost in a world of pain and misery.

Why I'm Voting for Clinton on Tuesday

Gerald said...

My wife has informed me that Hillary has spelled out her policies more definitively than the other candidates. This was a comment from sources who study what the candidates are saying.

Hillary will not win the Dems nomination but she is the best Democrat running.

It looks like I can vote for Cynthia McKinney if she is the Green Party candidate or Mike Gravel if Cynthia is not the Green Party nominee. Gravel may enter to run as a third party candidate.

In 2008 I can never vote for a Nazi and Obama does not show me the beef of his policies. Platitudes just don't cut it with me.

Gerald said...

I have concerns about Obama’s lack of experience in the executive branch at any level of government. While his speeches are quite inspiring, they don’t answer questions I have. I’m tired of rhetoric and candidates saying the “right” things. On the other hand, Clinton has been honest about certain issues that aren’t very popular amongst progressives. However, I learned in 1968 that demanding perfection led us to Richard Nixon. I am not picking between the lesser of two evils, I believe I am picking the best of two goods.

Gerald said...

My favorite commercial was two or three years ago. The commercial was reviewed after the game and so I had a chance to see it. I have not watched a Super Bowl game in 4 or 5 years.

The commercial was of a Budweiser horse who broke some wind and the woman in back became totally discombobulated. It was a great commercial.

Quotable
...the role of the military is to fight and win war and, therefore, prevent war from happening in the first place.
– George W. Bush

I say that we should choose to prevent war in the first place rather than to fight a war and believe that we are preventing a war. - Gerald

Budweiser Farting Horse

Gerald said...

DEN, I loved it!!!

Gerald said...

DEN, that was the commercial but I could remember all of the particulars.

Gerald said...

I could NOT remember all of the particulars.

DEN said...

Dear Den,
Beginning at 2:30 p.m. EST today, the Senate will resume debate on the pending FISA bill, by proceeding to vote on a series of amendments, most proposed by Democrats, to improve the bill. Key amendemnts include one jointly sponsored by Sens. Dodd and Feingold to strip the bill of telecom immunity; an amendment from Sen. Feinstein to transfer the telecom cases to the FISA court; an amendment jointly sponsored by Sens. Specter and Whitehouse to substitute the government for the telecoms as defendants; and an amendment from Sen. Feinstein emphasizing that FISA is the "exclusive means" by which the Government can conduct eavesdropping activites.

On Thursday, Democratic and Republican leaders reached agreement whereby certain amendments would require only 50 votes to pass, while others would require 60. It appears that these vote thresholds were set so as to ensure that none of the amendments opposed by the White House could actually pass. It seems clear that the Senate is well on its way to passing a bill that will provide both telecom immunity and vast new warrantless eavesdropping powers for the President. Nonetheless, it is still vital to secure as many favorable votes as possible, since that will provide added leverage in trying to pressure the House, which passed a much better bill back in November, to stand firm as it proceeds to negotiate with the Senate over the final bill to be sent to the White House.

Marcy Wheeler will be liveblogging the Senate proceedings at http://emptywheel.firedoglake.com.

Cheers,
Glenn Greenwald and Jane Hamsher

I just got this e-mail, a wee bit late. better go check cspan.

Saladin said...

I must disagree Carey, a true miracle would have been Gravel or Kucinich getting the nomination. However, no peace monger has a chance, it was preordained that only warmongering AIPAC whores would have a chance, and apparently the dems are fine and dandy with that. The choice will come down to Arab Murderer A or Arab Murderer B. Armageddonites, start your engines!

DEN said...

The fascist controlled media has made the choices for everyone, surprised?

Lets look back a bit, when has the MSM reported the Iraq war accurately? The Afgani war? The torture and killing of Palestinians? The severe attack on Constitutional principles? The obscene oil profits? our own torture schemes?

Page one; Brittany Spears and any other gossip or Hollywood scandal is the lead story, followed by the Hill&O show, oh yea don't forget, Hill has emotional moment!

The MSM cannot be trusted to be up front with important stuff, whay would you trust them with an election?



It is not like they do not know right from wrong, they do, but there is that fascist agenda by their corporate military contracts

David B. Benson said...

How to pick the President

Either of the Demorats is much better than even the best of the Repugs, whoever that might be...

David B. Benson said...

Saladin --- That's quite the letter about Monsanto. Hope everybody here reads it...

Saladin said...

Dear Mr. Benson, There is no way any pro-war, murdering democrat, of which both the dem choices are, is better than an anti-war pro-peace/liberty republican. The day a womans right to have an abortion or gun point health care trumps the slaughter of millions of innocent people for oil profits and that terrorist Apartheid state of Israel is the day I will give up on this republic, because that is the day we have truly sold our souls to the devil. Will you really cut off your own nose to spite your face? Has America really slid that far down the road to hell?

David B. Benson said...

Saladin said ... an anti-war pro-peace/liberty republican. Is there one?

Rodham supporters ought to read

Katha Pollitt supports Obama

and some of the comments are also enlightening.

Gerald said...

We have read letters on this blog and they should be read. My concern is that more awareness must be centered on the lobbyists in D.C. David Cay Johnston says that there is only one party in D.C. and that is the Money Party. There are at least 10,000 lobbyists in D.C. Monsanto and the AIPAC are two and that leaves us with 9,998 more lobbyists to contend with in D.C. Nazi America is an evil. vile, and wicked nation and her demise will come soon enough.

Carey said...

Haven't finished reading the blog quite yet. You'll never guess what happened to me.

I had to go see my opthmalogist for a pre-cataract removal surgery checkup. He dilated my eyes. It was so strong I could not drive home. I waited in the parking lot two hours and figured, better call my sis, can't get out of this mess. I couldn't even look up at all. Had to keep my eyes closed and sit in the car. It was icky.

Getting surgery folks. Two of them for cataract removal and lens implants. I have to go read all of the literature. I have been severely handicapped with my eyesight especially when driving.

Back to politics, Den, I meant advertising in general. Not just the political ads, they don't bother me. I was writing of the manipulation to buy, buy in every corner you turn. In the background, to the side of you, it's all around.

Have any of you ever bought something just to get rid of someone? I have.

Got to go check out that Monsanto and Hillary article, David.

Carey said...

I have a rather profound little column by Tim Rutten. It doesn't fit in the Super Tuesday motif but I found it really satisfying in a summation sort of way. A statement about torture here.

Mukasey's Confession

When Atty. Gen. Michael B. Mukasey went before the Senate Judiciary Committee this week to testify about the Bush administration's use of torture to obtain information from terrorists and suspected terrorists, it's fair to assume that he had no intention of highlighting the moral absurdity of the government's position. Still, that's exactly what he did.

________________________________

Read it for the last paragraph too. Rutten has a way of making it have impact and it does.

Carey said...

Ethel Kennedy endorsed Obama, compared him to Robert.

This has divided Democratic families.

Holy cow this is interesting.

Saladin said...

Yes Mr. Benson, there is one, and he is doing amazingly well, there were 11, now there are 4.

DEN, After reading your rant against the MSM I thought you in particular would enjoy this short video, based, of course, on the Lennon song:

Nobody Told Me There'd Be Days Like These!

DEN said...

Hey! sneaking in those repug political ads?

Just say no the the RNC!
(shadow government)

Good tune tho. JL Rocks!

Saladin said...

No DEN, I'm not sneaking in anything. The RNC is no more a shadow govt. than the DNC is it? BTW, he isn't a "repug," and certainly not a neocon, thank God! Can those two DNC AIPAC whores say the same thing? Here's the choice, war or peace, good or evil, this is what it boils down to now. He whipped McCain in Maine, woo hoo! Here's to peace! Hopefully in my lifetime.
