Comment rescue… From Kilroy’s

As if the clouds parted and the sun suddenly showed itself for the first time in a long time….

There are many other ways to get jobs.  One does not have to take the first suitor that comes along… There are quite a few old biddies who never found Mr. Right and turns out, that is a good thing….

The idea that we need to inhale carcinogens, poisonous Carbon Monoxide, Sulfur Dioxide, and  Ammonia, as recently as yesterday it was pointed out, radioactive radon,….. just so some new jobs are created…. really needs some adjustment.

Do we need jobs?  Yes jobs are good.  Do we need to kill ourselves off earlier, and poison our children and pets, as the price for bringing new jobs in?  Ummmm.  well….. I’m not sold on it yet….

Comparisons are often made against Chrysler.  For one, Chrysler was off to the side, out of the way.  A power plant on the other hand, makes itself known to all Newark, Bear, Elkton, and Glasgow residents 24/7…..

Do we want to change the personality of what Newark is, for a few jobs?

Do we want our daughter to marry the bride our uncle has picked out for her?

I might as well save us a lot of time and argument back and forth…

No.  I don’t think anyone living in Newark really wants it.

And another suitor will be along shortly.  It always happens that way…  How many of us marry our first date?

And don’t let the Governor or the  News Journal  or downstate Venables blame you for not marrying the suitor of their choice….   It is really their fault.  They should have known you better and made a better choice….

As for jobs,   hell, a mail processing facility would provide more jobs, and they wouldn’t disappear in 3 years either….

Now can we get some music to go with those clouds parting…………

Today is School Board Elections…Polls are open 10-8…  If anyone is sponsored by Markell or Rodell or RTTT or WSFS, don’t vote for them.. If anyone is sponsored by DSEA, they are on the students side. They are safe.

So go out and vote like a goat… Be…  B-a-a-a-a-a-a-a-a-a-a-a-a-a-a-a-a-D

It is a simple vote…

Should we or should we not put this man in an administrative function.

Please vote yes…. or no…..

(It should be open cut because a majority have already said they would support Cordray as head of the Consumer Financial Agency.) Just get it done…

But, it never goes to vote. In a motion to stop debate requiring 60 votes, 53 are found….

There is nothing more to debate. Vote yes or no… The argument has been on the table for months… But no… it cannot go forward because the Republican Party (all of it) had 45 members who voted against it…

The agency still has no one at the top to get it rolling. There is no one regulating Wall Street as we speak, simply because the entire block of Republicans, who voters put into minority receivership based on their previous track record, voted NOT to stop debate.

There will be no government until there are no Republicans.
There will be no Congress, until there are no Republicans.
There will be no Democracy. until there are no Republicans.
There will be no United States of America, until there are no Republicans.

(Sad thing this is not hyperbole. This is not campaign rhetoric. This is not hateful bantering. This is what is really happening. Makes a veteran want to cry)

Why you have to do a reality check everytime Gingrich speaks……

Gingrich quotes describing President Obama as the:

“finest food stamp president in American history” because more people will end up getting government aid than new jobs.

Fact: George W Bush followed Newt Gingritch’s plan while in the White House.

Fact: The best remedy for less public assistance, is more jobs.

Fact: During the 8 years of George W. Bush, there was 0 net job growth…. Zero.

Fact: Under Obama’s tenure, 2.9 million new jobs have been created, (get this) in the private sector.

Truth. Gingrich’s taunt works better against his own policies. They certainly don’t apply to those of President Obama.

Bottom line; If you want more welfare and public assistance, vote Republican.. If you want jobs, vote Democratic.

History is all the proof you need.

The recession has popped a lot of dreams… It has forced a re-evaluation of priorities. It has put reality in the forefront.

So wiping off the table of everything, everything, and sitting down to a blank space, and asking myself, … what do I want, by the time I die.

It is:

A country where working people can earn enough to raise a family, build a modest savings, own a home and secure their retirement,”

After watching “It’s a Wonderful Life” you can be sure it can’t happen on a Republican’s watch….. For that dream to happen, we need protection from corporations and Big Money; not giving them more and more of what we make.

We need more money funneled away from big business, to be reinvested into the Middle Class… Since they haven’t done it voluntarily, we’ll have to force it.

Republicans can’t force anyone to do anything. They are putz’s. It will take a government of all Democrats to make Americans who die, at least die happy that they were able to secure:

“A country where working people can earn enough to raise a family, build a modest savings, own a home and secure their retirement”.

Again, lifted from Der Spiegal

The current favorite? He’s a political dinosaur, dishonored and discredited. Or so we thought. Yet just because he studied history and speaks in more complex sentences than his rivals, the US media now reflexively hails him as a “Man of Ideas” (The Washington Post) — even though most of these ideas are lousy if not downright offensive, such as firing unionized school janitors, so poor children could do their jobs.

Pompous and blustering, Gingrich gets away with this humdinger as well as with selling himself as a Washington outsider — despite having made millions of dollars as a lobbyist in Washington. At least the man’s got chutzpah.

The hypocrisy doesn’t end here. Gingrich claims moral authority on issues such as the “sanctity of marriage,” yet he’s been divorced twice. He sprang the divorce on his first wife while she was sick with cancer. (His supporters’ excuse: It’s been 31 years, and she’s still alive.) He cheated on his second wife just as he was pressing ahead with Bill Clinton’s impeachment during the Monica Lewinsky affair, unaware of the irony. The woman he cheated with, by the way, was one of his House aides and 23 years his junior — and is now his perpetually smiling third wife.

Americans have a short memory. They forget, too, that Gingrich was driven out of Congress in disgrace, the first speaker of the house to be disciplined for ethical wrongdoing. Or that he consistently flirts with racism when he speaks of Barack Obama. Or that he enjoyed a $500,000 credit line at Tiffany’s just as his campaign was financially in the toilet and he ranted about the national debt. Chutzpah, indeed.

Yet the US media rewards him with a daily kowtow. And the Republicans reward him too, by having put him on top in the latest polls. Mr. Hypocrisy, the bearer of his party’s hope.

“I think he’s doing well just because he’s thinking,” former President Clinton told the conservative online magazine NewsMax. “People are hungry for ideas that make some sense.” Sense? Apparently it’s not just the Republicans who have lost their minds here.

Finally, we are getting somewhere. About time those making over a million have to pay at least, the same rate of as those of us in the middle…

This proposal is likely to not receive support from Republicans and could have considerable impact on the next session of elections….

Like Republicans only receive 1% of the vote!…

Proof for Hube that Sarah Palin Targets Giffords

Political violence is a pretensor of war. If you don’t like what the other person believes, you kill him. That’s what war is.

The whole idea of politics is,… that things get settled without killing. If you start killing, it becomes war, and politics becomes a thing of the past.

We have all felt angry at opponents. We have all wished someone would “take out” our opponent just to make our lives easier. That is normal behavior. That is universal behavior.

But, there is a difference from privately wishing and actually doing it. “Taking someone out” leaves pain that lasts long afterward. It leaves children without parents, parents without partners, mothers without children. To those hurt by political violence, what should be their proper response?, “Taking out” someone on the other side?

Alas, there will always be nuts out there.

But nuts want approval too. Anyone standing up and publicly giving them the idea that they can again be a worth to society for pulling a trigger, actually aggravates the assault.

Those who egg on violence, need to be held accountable for their actions. They need to be sued.

We have courts. We have tons of lawyers out of work. Businesses and families and corporations all get taken to court on accusations, based on flimsier evidence than this.

If you have any followers what-so-ever, and you stand up and say: “someone needs to kill this person”, you certainly can be listed on any victim’s lawsuit for damages.

If violence of any type continues, every victim should sue Sarah Palin.
It doesn’t matter if she’s guilty. It does matter that it stops.

What truly matters that again, we all realize politics is something fun, like sports.

So what if New Orleans is going home tail tucked between their legs. Do we drive to the Space Needle and kill Seattleans?

Politics needs to be the same way. Weighing in Beck, Palin, and Hannity with lawsuits should yield a very quick solution.
