Obama’s hectoring the Real Democrats — the base — is a bound-to-fail enterprise. We Real Democrats told him time and again how and where he was losing us and he ignored us. That bill is coming due.
Kids are starving in Maine. What is Obama doing about it?
They say no good deed goes unpunished. I suspect that, in wingnut world, that’s the way they’re feeling today.
Sinclair Broadcasting, that home of wingnut propaganda TV and Swift-boating, is teetering on the brink of bankruptcy.
Early in 2002, before the earliest incidences of torture (at least those we know of), Gonzo went further than any of the pixie dust we’ve seen so far. He told Bushie that Bush could pixie dust the War Crimes Act out of the way.
With a little application of logic, we find that under the praxis Deadeye and the Torture 13 applied to justify it, torture is universally available.
Ah, yes. The torture pictures. Anything to keep them from being seen. Even though the Government settled the case the ACLU had brought, seeking those pictures, Obama now wants to welsh on his deal.
Emptywheel and I were having this discussion earlier. The economy sucks, job listings go nowhere, and here we are blogging rather than earning.
We’ve been having a good discussion over at Emptywheel’s place about al-Haramin, what the Bushies left out of (or had to “correct”) in their classified submissions to the judge in that and the FISA cases, and then the discussion turned to datamining financial information. One of the commenters asked:
Datamining financial data. Could this be how they got Spitzer?
And it went from there.
WE can end the foreclosure crisis now. But we have to work together, and we have to do it from the bottom up. It’s time for us to go on a mortgage strike, like a rent strike, until we get the changes we want.
