Hillbilly Review Board #2

For today’s edition of the Hillbilly Review Board we’re going to go over some things that many of you hillbillies are just plain ignorant about.

OK, let’s just jump right in to a topic that some Hillbillies and many others just don’t want to talk about or maybe they’re afraid. It is kinda embarrassing when people don’t just honestly put their feelings out there on the topic and look like some sort of uncomfortable grandmother with a squishy wedgie up their ass when they do talk about it.

But we’re not afraid of no topics around here cuz we just lay it all out as honestly as we can, right or wrong.


Yes, the topic is race.

Hillbillies! Ya got a problem.

Let’s just go past the obvious. Black people, Mexicans and other minorities are the same as you and just trying to get by in life just like you. We’ll leave it at that.

Now, a few things many of you hillbillies have GOT to learn.

It’s not ok to use the term “nigger” in front of someone just because they are also white. You see, not everyone is as simple minded and ignorant as you are. When I hear you use that term I will treat you like the dumb fuck racist that you are and make sure everyone within hearing distance knows what a dumb fuck ignorant racist hillbilly you are. You see, I don’t want any of the other dumb fuck morons within hearing distance to think they can respond to your ignorant ass bullshit in kind. I also don’t want anyone to ever get the idea that I will tolerate or condone such idiotic racist behavior or respond in kind. Nope, you’re going to be an example, so go ahead, use the “N” word. Watch what little respect you had and all your dignity disappear.
And those of you who claim to not be racist or bigotted but stand by silent when people say racist and bigotted things. . . you are no different than they are, you just say different things when you open your mouth. If you let them get away with it, you are just as bad as the perpetrator.

It’s not ok to say anything racist, even if you cloak it in some flimsy film of irrational understanding. So just shit can the fucking statements that include “those people” or “you know how they are” or other blanket condemnations that do nothing but display your own blatant stupidity and backwoods attitude.

Now listen up here hillbillies. It is ok to ask questions if you really want to know the answer. You aint gonna solve your problem of ignorance unless you ask questions. So go ahead. Wondering something about black people, Mexicans, Jews or some other minority? Ask. You can ask some black person, Mexican, Jew or whatever if you’d like, or you can ask me, the Sagacious Hillbilly who is the HMFIC of the Hillbilly Review Board.

Another thing you gotta do. . . Vote for Obama. Beside the best interests of hillbillies everywhere, which we’ll cover in another more politically oriented post, you racially bigoted white people have got to just bite the bullet and perform an exercise in putting your prejudices aside and doing the right thing. Yea, let the good of the country and your own best interests trump out your racism. You’ll feel good about yourself for doing it.

Ya know, as long as Appalachian folks are known for their backward racial views, people are not going to be interested in having anything to do with Appalachian mountain folks. They aren’t going to build their factories here, they aren’t going to come here for their vacations and they aren’t going to bat an eye when someone says something stupid and stereotypical about Hillbillies. Your schools will always be mediocre because the best and brightest are simply not going to want to attend or teach at what is perceived to be a backwoods institution.

Think about it. Yea, think. Does holding on to old ideas that are outdated and socially unacceptable EVER help a society or culture? I can’t think of a single society or culture that flourishes by doing so. Look at the Muslim extremists in today’s world. They are viewed as primitive morons. Guess what. . . so are you.

Get over your prejudices. Open your minds. Make like it’s the 21st Century.

We CAN turn West Virginia and other parts of Appalachia into a modern well thought of and well liked locale, but it’s going to take a change in OUR attitudes and the way WE perceive the world, ourselves and other people.

You aint gonna change other people’s attitudes about West Virginia as long as you’re thinking like some 19th Century backwoods racist moron.

Big Oil corporate royalist win again

This bullshit has got to stop!

Oil spill ruling leaves Alaska victims stunned
By RACHEL D'ORO, Associated Press Writer Thu Jun 26, 4:42 AM ET
ANCHORAGE, Alaska - Mike Lytle, a third-generation fisherman from the coastal village of Cordova, said many residents there were walking around stunned, shaking their heads.

A lot of people he knows were planning their retirements with the $2.5 billion in punitive damages that Exxon Mobil Corp. was expected to pay the nearly 33,000 victims of the worst oil spill in U.S. history.

But the Supreme Court dashed their hopes Wednesday, deciding to cut the punitive damages for the 1989 Exxon Valdez disaster to $507.5 million. That translates to an average of $15,000 per victim. . . .

Wednesday's decision to reduce the amount to one equal to about four days worth of Exxon Mobil's last quarter profits was hailed by the business community and decried by environmentalists and Alaskans.

These are people whose livlihoods were destroyed by this corporate caused evironmental disaster.

Four days worth of profits is all they have to pay for one of the most horrific environmental disasters of the 20th Century.

I always cringe no mater what side I'm on when a higher court overturns the verdict of a people's jury, but this one is really hard to take knowing how many people will be devastated by this gross miscarriage of justice.

I'm so tired of corporate America getting every break in this country.

Get these mother fucking corporate judges OFF my Supreme Court!

Hillbilly Review Board

I was over at Field Negro’s blog ( and I really liked an idea he had. He proposes that he establish a “Negro Review Board.” It would sorta be like a police force to let black people know when they were doing stupid things and help them to correct their ignorant behaviors.
Me, being a hillbilly who get so fucking tired of seeing his people embarrass themselves constantly in front of other hillbillies, the national press and Amurkkka as a whole had a brilliant idea. . . almost like I thought of it myself. Why not have a “Hillbilly Review Board.” Our job would be to inform hillbillies when their behaviors were ignorant and out of line and may be inviting public ridicule and what behaviors are appropriate. Of course I, being the Sagacious Hillbilly, would be in charge of this Hillbilly Review Board.
So with a tip of the hat and major big props to the Field Negro over at, I will outline some basic behaviors that all hillbillies ought to keep to and behaviors they ought not to be guilty of.

Don’t be marrying your cousin. Yea, I know, it’s a mile and a half down the holler to the hard road and then another four miles to the nearest store and cousin Emma is the only girl even close to your age between here and there. It doesn’t matter. Haul your ass farther on down the road and find a girl that aint yer cousin.
I know, my mom and dad AND my g’parents were all related too each other and it aint hurt me none much, but believe me, ya can’t keep doin that. This aint 1949. Hitch a ride outta the holler and get ya some fresh stuff.

Dress appropriately. You may be a poor ignorant hillbilly, but you sure as hell anit no black gangsta. If you’re driving up and down the hard road in your daddy’s old ‘83 Chevy pickup truck with a giant bass woofer in the back cranking out ghetto rap so loud it stops the chickens from layin and dries up the cows and you’ve got a silly ass ball cap on sideways with your pants down below your ass and a huge tee shirt down to your knees, you gotta hold onto your crotch to keep your pants from falling down and you’re strutting around like a barnyard turkey with hemoroids, you aint acting appropriately and you sure as hell aint dressed appropriately.
Dump the ghetto duds. Believe me, even the ghetto dudes look like morons in those outfits. Get yourself a nice pair of 501 jeans, a western shirt and a pair of decent boots or even sneakers. Oh, and a belt. Believe me, you’ll do a lot better with the chicks, your teachers, potential employers and all the people you come in contact with will be much more inclined to show you some respect and your chances of getting out of the holler and generally making something good of your life will be much greater.

And when you go into town, wash up. Put on a clean shirt. Use some deodorant. Remove the fucking ball cap when you go into a building, especially when you sit down at anyone’s table to eat. You come into my house with that stupid fucking ball cap on and sit down at my dinner table and I’ll remove the mother fucker for ya. . . real quick. . . without asking.

Show some manners. I know, not everyone was raised with manners. If your parents were ignorant slobs, you’re probably are a bit of an ignorant slob. You don’t have to be. Show a little humility., Pay attention to people who do have manners and try to learn from them. Nothing turns people off more than an ill-mannered buffoon. No, you don’t have to be Emily Post or Miss Manners, you’ve just gotta show respect and pay attention.
Yea, yea, I know. People who act all proper and mannerly are often arrogant fucks that I wouldn’t want to spend an hour with either. But not everyone with manners is like that either. Find someone with manners you can stand to look at and emulate them

Don’t drop out of High School!!! I know, it’s tough. I was ADHD back when nobody knew what ADHD was. Nobody had much hope for me, but I persevered. I dug my claws in and fought my way through HS. There were times when I wanted to chuck it all. Luckily, my father quit HS when he was in 8th grade and was not about to let his kid do the same so I scraped and clawed my way to a diploma. I then entered college at a place where mediocrity was acceptable and I scraped and clawed my way through there. It took me a while, but I finally managed to eek out a college degree. . . barely. It took lots of loans and working long hours and night classes because my parents didn’t have a lot of money to send their kid through college. My point is, anyone can do it. YOU can get through HS and even college if you really want to. Look around you. . . the people who have made something of their lives. . . even the guy next door who has a decent job and provides for his family. Doesn’t he have some level of education? Think about it.

Don’t talk to the media. Really, when some prick from the national media comes to your town because there was a mine disaster, a flood or they just want to parade around some ignorant hill folk, just say “NO.” Nuff said.

Read something now and then. Yup, whatever you read, read every word. Make sure you know how to pronounce the words you read and know their meaning. Trust me, it’ll do you good. It’ll keep you sharp. You’ll be less ignorant.

Close your mouth. No shit. When you’re standing there trying to figure out something that seems complicated to you, close you mouth. You’ll at least look less ignorant. There is a reason why people refer to “slack jawed yokels.” So close your mouth, stand up straight, put your hands on your hips and look like you’re contemplating, not totally dumbfounded.

Use protection when having sex. You’re going to fuck. Everyone does and when you live up some lonely holler and there just aint that much to do, there’s even more likelihood that you’re going to fuck at an even younger age. Use protection. Having babies at 15 or 16 is just plain stupid. What kind of parent are you going to be with no education, no chance of a decent job and no experience as an adult. All you’re going to do is produce another little ignorant hillbilly for people to laugh at. So really, if you’re going to have sex, use protection and don’t become a teenage mother. And unless you CAN provide for a baby or another baby, it doesn’t matter how old you are, use protection. Look, the welfare payment you’ll get for having another little hillside dirt monkey just aint worth it.

No fucking confederate flags. “But Sagacious One, it’s a symbol of our heritage.” Bullfuckingshit. It’s a symbol that offends a large portion of the American population. Hard working Americans just like you. It’s a symbol that represents a long dead demographic that fought long and hard for their right to hold slaves and hold onto their slave society. Nothing more and nothing less. All that confederate flag says is that you’re a dumbass ignorant hillbilly who is probably a racist thug. Yea, that’s it. When you display one of those you’re an embarrassment to yourself and the people around you. Same goes for those ignorant bumper stickers that say “The south’s gonna rise again.” It might, but it won’t be with morons like you at the helm. There is not room in the New South for confederate flags and stupid civil war slogans. You can keep the stickers of the twelve point buck profile and the turkey foot. It’s cool. It’s ok to wear camouflage. You can hunt, fish and do all that wild outdoor stuff. I might be over on the next hillside doin it too. It’s what we do out here in the rural parts of America. It’s part of our heritage that we can exercise proudly, but all the confederate southern pride horse shit has GOT to stop.

Go ahead, talk like a hillbilly. No, really. Don’t worry about your “accent.” It’s who you are and what you are. Open your mouth and pronounce your words proudly. Only really ignorant people will judge you by how you speak. It’s just how you speak. It’s part of your heritage. Don’t be ashamed of it. Those of you who try and lose your accent because you want to sound more urbane or whatever, Go fuck yourself.

There’s a good primer for ya. Think about it.
Tomorrow we’re going to talk about politics and socio-economic issues that you hillbillies have GOT to learn to deal with.
Till then, remember, the Hillbilly Review Board might be watching.

Dumbocrats deliver for the corpo-fascists.

House easily passes compromise surveillance law

By PAMELA HESS, Associated Press Writer

WASHINGTON - The House Friday easily approved a compromise bill setting new electronic surveillance rules that effectively shield telecommunications companies from lawsuits arising from the government's terrorism-era warrantless eavesdropping on phone and computer lines in this country.

The dumbocrats in congress have once again taken it in the ass from the White House and the republicans. Ya gotta hand it to those corpo-fascist SOBs, they seem to be able to manipulate and control the democrats whether they are a majority or not. IT's amazing how they get what they want even though the Bushies have the absolute worse popularity rating of any administration since they began keeping track of such things. Fuck the Constitution of the United States, fuck individual freedom, fuck what the people want, if the corpo-fascists want it, the dumbocrats will give it to them.

We will never be free as long as the ignorant, the uneducated, the unthinking, the mindless and the dull witted continue to put these career politicians back into office.

The myth of "off shore drilling" and other oil company bullshit

An article I read today seems to confirm what my last post stated. Off shore drilling currently accounts for 25% of domestic oil production. Oil companies hold leases to vast reserves of oil in both off shore areas and land based areas. They have chosen NOT to drill in these areas so that they can hold on to that oil speculating that the price will continue to rise and they will reap better profits in the future. Meanwhile, they pump where they're at at maximum capacity and make record profits selling every drop of oil they can get. So why are politicians tying o "open up" off shore drilling? So that oil companies can obtain more leases in areas they have been restricted from getting leases. Understand, they won't be drilling there anytime soon, they just want the option to do so, so that when oil hits $200/brl they might want to increase production.

Another question we might be wanting to ask the oil companies is why they have fewer refineries now than they did ten years ago? You see, ten years ago they had something like 250 refineries producing gasoline in the USA. Today there are around 150. Huh? Like, WTF?

They claim they can't build new refineries because the enviros have made to too costly for them to do so. Bullshit. They're building refineries to the same specs in other places. They simply want enviro regs slashed so that they can build cheap, operate cheap and fuck the environment. Don't fall for their bullshit. Think about what the Earth would be like todayh if the environmental regulations of the 60s and 70s hadn't been enacted. What would your city, state or town look like?

The only solution to our energy problems is alternative methods of fueling our world. Solar, wind, wave and other sustainable non-polluting methods of energy production is the only real alternative. Anything else is just a band-aide fix.

And again, if oil comapnies don't want to invest their profits in alternative fuels research, we nee to take their profits from them and invest in those types of research.

Open wide and swallow hard proles!

Every politician this side of the North Slope has a plan for relieving you of the burden of $4.00 per gallon gasoline. Most of them are telling you that the only solution is DRILL, DRILL, DRILL! There's just one problem with that little idea. . . IT WON'T FUCKING WORK! If we throw all the environmental protection laws out the window and fuck all the places we have tried to protect the past thirty or forty years, the price of a gallon of gas will only continue to rise. You see, the Saudis have a shit load of oil. They have more oil than everybody else put together and Americans consume more oil than almost everybody else put together. IF we open up ANWR and all our off shore areas to drilling, the output from those sources would be a drop in the bucket compared to our consumption and the amounts available in the middle east, Venezuela and even Mexico. More domestic drilling is a straw man and just another prop to make you ignorant morons believe there is a solution that doesn't involve grabbing the oil companies by the balls and squeezing until some of their obscene record profits shrink up like the dick they're fucking you with.
Remember, when oil companies discover new oil. They don't begin pumping it to relieve you of your burden, they wait till prices rise and then begin pumping it to add to their already obscene profits. That is what they do.

Another brilliant plan is to remove the federal gas tax. Last time I looked, the federal gas tax was somewhere around 20 cents per gallon. So if by some miracle the congress removed all federal taxes on gas, we would suddenly be paying $3.80 instead of $4.00 per gallon. Whoopy-doo. How long before demand goes up and prices go straight back up to $4.00? A week? Two weeks? More importantly, what happens when all the federal money used to fix bridges, roads and other highway infrastructure dries up? Can we afford to go a few months with no money being spent on motor transport infrastructure? Pretty soon it won't make a difference how much gasoline you can buy cuz yer roads are going to be wrecked. Yea, it won't take long. It's a constant battle for highway departments to keep our roads passable and our bridges safe.
Now remember, that tax removal was temporary, so when fall comes around, and your back up to paying not just $4.00 a gallon but probably a lot more because the oil companies are allowed to gouge you at will, you'll suddenly be hit with another 20 cent per gallon increase all at once. Man, that'll feel great.

Here's another good idea. . . let's let the oil cvompanies put all the hard won environmental regulations on the shelf and operate beyond them all. No reall, that's been one of the proposals. . . the oil companies, with their record profits, are being legislated to death.

Ya know, in the short term, the only thing that's going to keep the price of gasoline from going up, up, up is to put price controls and tax the hell out of their profits.
Alexander Hamilton, the man who believed that big government, with the captains of commerce setting the course would be the ideal form for the republic, believed that now and then, the federal government would have to step in and protect the public from the excesses of corporations.

In the long term, the only hope we have is to find alternative methods to fuel our world. Oil os running out and it's going to break our backs before it does if we're not careful. IF oil companies won't invest their profits in alternative fuels technology, we need to take their profits and fund such research. It's a matter of national and international survival.

Wake up you bunch of prozac chewing dull witted proles. This is simple shit for you folks. It doesn't take a Harvard economist to understand this crap. It take a little bit of interest and attention and then voting with a little common sense.
Or, open wide and swallow hard and take another load of corpo-fascist spew.

Supremes once again uphold the Constitution of the Unites States

. . . as they should.

Court ruling a blow to Bush, but official says trials to proceed
by Fanny Carrier Fri Jun 13, 8:13 AM ET
WASHINGTON (AFP) - The US Supreme Court ruling that Guantanamo prisoners can challenge their detention in US civilian courts dealt a blow to President George W. Bush, but a senior official said Friday the military trials will continue.

"The laws and constitution are designed to survive, and remain in force, in extraordinary times," the court said Thursday in its historic ruling, the third blow in four years to the government's case for trying "war on terror" suspects in military tribunals.

"Liberty and security can be reconciled; and in our system they are reconciled within the framework of the law," the court added.

The court ruled by five to four that prisoners in the US military prison in southeastern Cuba "have the constitutional privilege of habeas corpus."

Interestingly, the parts of the dissenting opinions that I read were all about the "security of America," "radical Islamists," "Americans bing killed," etc. Not much mention of the parts of the Constitution of the United States that upholds their opinion that it's ok to keep due process from these prisoners. Ya gotta love those extremist right wing judicial titans.

Oh, and believe it or not, some fill-in for Bill O'Liar on Fox News actually suggested that since the Bushies are lame duck and their public opinion is in the hole anyway, they should simply ignore the Supreme Court of the United States and go on doing their dirty work in Guantanamo as they have been without worrying about pleas for habeas corpus. Yes, the moron really said that the administration should ignore the Supreme Court.
Like one of my all time favorites and quintessential badass once said: "Go ahead, make my day."

Tim Russert is dead!

OK! We get it. Tim Russert died unexpectedly and he was the finest guy in America. OK! Enough.

I haven't seen coverage like this since Kennedy was assasinated. WTF is up with MSNBC, CNN and HNN? They've been hashing over Tim Russert's life pretty much continuously for the past 24 hours.
What kind of self serving and self congratulatory media BS is this? Tim Russert pitched softballs to most of his interviewees. He let the Bushies come on Meet the Press and talk the American public into going to war on lies and fabricated evidence. I and many others I knew realized at the time it was all bullshit. If Tim Russert were such a brilliant journalist and politically savy genius, why the fuck didn't he call them on their bullshit.

Nope, the main stream media is just using Russert to make a hero out of one of their own to cover up their own ineptitude and lack of good investigative journalism.

Let's invade the middle east! Brilliant idea!

The invasion of the middle east is what's called a classic "cluster fuck." We have such a gigantic mess over there nobody can even come up with anything like a solution to the mess we've made. This is why my country shames me. That our citizenry can support such an absurd recreant act by electing the president who did it to a second term is cause for hang-your-fucking-head shame.
Go ahead you ignorant moronic proles. . . vote another corpo-fascist republican into the White House.

4 Marines die in Afghanistan; 870 inmates escape
By NOOR KHAN and JASON STRAZIUSO, Associated Press Writers
KANDAHAR, Afghanistan - About 870 prisoners escaped during a Taliban bomb and rocket attack on the main prison in southern Afghanistan that knocked down the front gate and demolished a prison floor, Afghan officials said Saturday. And in western Afghanistan on Saturday, a roadside bomb exploded near a U.S. military vehicle, killing four Americans in the deadliest attack against U.S. troops in the country this year, officials said. . . .

The bombing comes one day after U.S. Defense Secretary Robert Gates told his counterparts in Europe that for the first time, the monthly total of American and allied combat deaths in Afghanistan exceeded the toll in Iraq during May.

Boycott Faux News Advertisers

Faux (Fox) News is a joke. They lie. They make up facts. They simply say things that aren't true. Their supposed "news" is all about putting forth the right wing corpo-fascist agenda that is all about the greed of the corporate royalists.

Boycott advertisers on Faux News. They are bad people. They are traitors to the political processes that have made this country great.

Here are some advertisers I observed on Faux New tonight. Do not buy a single prduct from any of these companies if you love your country.

MetLife - There are plenty of life inurance companies around.

Oral-B "Vitality" tooth brush - it's a gimmick anyway.


Bayer Asprin - buy store brand. It's cheaper and asprin is asprin.

Johnsonville Brats - Anyone who would buy Johnsonville sausage products has no taste anyway. I buy store brand Italians and brats that are MUCH better than Johnsonville. If you've got a local pork store, who needs these flavorless crap tubes.

Southwest Airlines - find another airline

Sonic Scrubber - another gimmick for morons

Who will survive?

Gas is over $4 per gallon. Milk has increased 25% in the past year. Food prices in general are gettiing ridiculous. Rice, the #1 food product for millions around the world is becoming over priced and scarce. Everything we need to buy is going through the roof in price. Yes, the corporate royalists are getting it all. They are making it so that every dollar you bring in is $.75 that goes into their pockets.
Some say it is the result of an unsustainable population. Some say global warming is having an effect. I believe the biggest contributor is corporate greed and short term profit.

So who will survive this mess? When we REALLY begin running low on oil and our food supply and warmth are effected and people can't get to jobs, more small businesses shut down. . . who will survive? When the food supply becomes REALLY scarce and people begin simply relying on staples to make it through the long days and months, who will survive?

I've seen the people who will survive. They and others like them who can live off the grid, independent of the oil supply, the modern food chain and all the other encumbrances. Those who survive are those who can pull it together, grow their own protein, fats and carbs and stay warm, sheltered and clothed without the aid of a giant society behind them.

Here are your republican leaders!

Senate GOP blocks windfall taxes on Big Oil
By H. JOSEF HEBERT, Associated Press Writer
WASHINGTON - Saved by Senate Republicans, big oil companies dodged an attempt Tuesday to slap them with a windfall profits tax and take away billions of dollars in tax breaks in response to the record gasoline prices that have the nation fuming.

GOP senators shoved aside the Democratic proposal, arguing that punishing Big Oil won't do a thing to lower the $4-a-gallon-price of gasoline that is sending economic waves across the country. High prices at the pump are threatening everything from summer vacations to Meals on Wheels deliveries to the elderly.

The Democratic energy package would have imposed a 25 percent tax on any "unreasonable" profits of the five largest U.S. oil companies, which together made $36 billion during the first three months of the year. It also would have given the government more power to address oil market speculation, opened the way for antitrust actions against countries belonging to the OPEC oil cartel, and made energy price gouging a federal crime. . .

Shortly after the oil tax vote, Republicans blocked a second proposal that would extend tax breaks that have either expired or are scheduled to end this year for wind, solar and other alternative energy development, and for the promotion of energy efficiency and conservation. Again Democrats couldn't get the 60 votes to overcome a GOP filibuster

Not only do they give the oil companies free reign to stick it in your ass and break it off, they say "fuck you" to alternative energy. How brain dead are these corporate sponsored bastards? Obviously they feel they have no chance of winning in Nov., so they're selling their votes to the highest bidders. . . and we all know who that is; the companies with the highest profits.

Remember this every time you walk into a voting booth and pull the level on some corporate facist republican. And all you dumb fucks who voted for these bought-and-paid-for corporate lackeys; are ya proud of that vote you cast. Are you glad you got to keep your guns and prevented so many babies from dying and saved your marriage from those godless, queer loving democrats? And just think, 1 out of 4 American approve of the job MoronMonkeyBoy Bush the Chimp is doing. Almost half of all American voters say they will vote for the next corpo-fascist lap dog monkeyboy McBuch/McCain.
What a bunch of stupid sorry ass voters we have in this country.
The founding fathers feared the stupidity and self interests of the common voter. We can see how that fear was so terribly justified in todays political environment.
BTW: Even Alexander Hamilton agreed that there were times when the federal government would have to step in and regulate and control certain segments of enterprise.

VP Challenge

OK, the bullshit has begun. I heardly EVER like the VP choice of my candidate. From Al Gore, Fritz Mondale, Geraldine Ferraro, Josef Leiberman and numerous others, many of whom were the doom of their ticket I really didn't like any except for John Edwards and I didn't really like his boss.

Now we see the VP choices being speculated on and here they are on MSNBC giving Jim Webb an exclusive interview about what else: Jim Webb. This guy is not dynamic, he is not really appealing to all that many, he looks a little bit weird and he's a very conservative democrat. One good thing about him, they could save money on campaign advertizing by using his forehead for billboard space.

Billary does not go gently into that good night

It sounded like a self congratulatory victory speech to me.
Man, I am SO glad she is NOT going to be running against McBush.

Too little too late.

Some rich people are morons

Taxing the 'Not-So-Rich' Rich
By Jane Sasseen Fri Jun 6, 8:08 AM ET BusinessWeek
By any measure, Dr. Howard Hammer and his wife, Hope, have a comfortable life. Hammer, 40, has built a thriving practice as an ear, nose, and throat specialist, while Hope, 39, has switched to part-time work as a real estate lawyer . . . to spend more time with Arielle, 7, and Matthew, 9. . . . between them, they bring in over $300,000 a year. "We can't complain," he says. "We're certainly not struggling."

"can't complain?!" I'd say fuckin right you can't. I know people who would not complain if they could find something making more than 7 or 8 bucks an hour.

But are they wealthy? That's far more debatable. Hammer, who feels the same pressures squeezing Americans up and down the income ladder, says he's anything but. Ever-rising prices for gas, health insurance, and other expenses are hitting hard, as are the $3,000-a-month mortgage and the $2,000 he still pays monthly to whittle down his $160,000 medical school debt. A six-year residency gave Hammer a delayed start saving for retirement, so he worries if he's stashing enough in his 401(k). By the time the couple contributes to the children's college fund, there's little extra at the end of the month.

Fuck you. Yes you're wealthy. By the standards of 95% of the working people in this country, you're fucking wealthy. Complaining about your $3000 mortgage, kid's college fund, med school loans, and being worried that you aren't stashing enough away in your retirement account is bullshit. These fucking people are so out-of-touch with the reality of the working class. Most of the people I know can't even think about stashing away money in the kids college fund or their retirement account. They're too busy trying to figure out how to afford food AND gas for the car that they only use now to go back and worth to work. We won't get into the folks who have subprime loans right now.
Yea, and Dr. and Ms.Lawyer just don't have ENOUGH at the end of the month. You fuckiing morons.

. . . If Washington doesn't act, tax rates on income, capital gains, dividends, and other areas will return to the higher rates in effect before the cuts were enacted in 2001 and 2003. Senator John McCain (R-Ariz.), the presumptive GOP Presidential nominee, has said he would extend the cuts for everyone, while Obama says he'll maintain them for all but the wealthiest. If Obama wins, some taxes could go up as soon as 2009.

That's right you bunch of rich pricks, your new MOnkeyBoy is going to lose to the new boss OBama. Your taxes are going to go BACK up where they belong before MoronMonketBoy Bush the Chimp gave away the enational treasury. In fact, they should go WAY up so that all you rich fuckers making over a quarter million a year and put all that money BACK into the national tresury that you've been stealing for the past seven years.

Michael Ginn, 49, a longtime media executive who lives with his wife, Dafne, 34, and 3-year-old daughter, Erin, in the New York suburb of Pelham; their second daughter is due in July. Though his income has topped $300,000 for more than a decade, Ginn says he's never felt so stretched. With the cost of everything from health insurance to upkeep on his 90-year-old home surging, even as he takes on new expenses for his growing family, Ginn can't stash away anything near what he once did for retirement, let alone save for college. "We're just dog paddling now," he says.

Ok, you're 49 yrs old with a 3 yr old and one on the way and a 34 yr old wife. Are you still making payments on the first family? You're an asshole too. $300K+ for over a decade and you're "just dog paddling?!" You're a moron.

How can these dumb fucks expect to gain any sympathy whining about $3000 mortgages and their $300K salaries? In-fucking-credible.

So vote for the republican corpo-fascist lackey you stupid short sighted ignorant morons. You're no brighter than the working class and the poor who won't vote for the black guy because he is or won't vote for the liberal because they've been told they'll lose their guns, their babies will be killed and god will punish them.

You're all the same stupid brainwashed fuckheads who can't see beyond your own pitiful little bullshit world.

The senate is corrupt beyond repair

Vote on climate bill is blocked in Senate
By H. JOSEF HEBERT, Associated Press Writer
WASHINGTON - Senate Republicans on Friday blocked a global warming bill that would have required major reductions in greenhouse gases, pushing debate over the world's biggest environmental concern to next year for a new Congress and president.

Democratic leaders fell a dozen votes short of getting the 60 needed to end a Republican filibuster on the measure and bring the bill up for a vote, prompting Majority Leader Harry Reid to pull the legislation from consideration.

The Senate debate focused on bitter disagreement over the expected economic costs of putting a price on carbon dioxide, the leading greenhouse gas that comes from burning fossil fuels. Opponents said it would lead to higher energy costs.

Too expensive for who? The corporate royalists? Meanwhile, we're paying over $4 a gallon for gasoline. I'm getting ready to go buy diesel fuel for my farm tractor and it's going to cost me almost $5 per gallon. It is getting to the point where a man with a tractor and a farm can not make any kind of living. Hell, I'm just trying to break even and it's becoming clear that it aint gonna happen with $5 per gallon fuel.
But please Mr. Senator, please just fuck our environment and fuck our Earth so that corporate royalists can maximize their profits and not have to invest in all tht pesky old pollution abatement equipment.
What the hell is the matter with these piece of shit mother fuckers?

Willie Dixon and Johnny Rivers - Seventh Son

Willie Dixon and Johnny Rivers - Seventh Son

Be afraid, be very afraid

Fear will be the key process by which the right wing extremists will try and wrangle themselves out of the political basement this election year. Let's face it, they've got nothing. The economy is in shambles and our foreign policy is a nightmare. All their rhetoric of moral fortitude and fiscal responsibility has become a national joke/embarrasment.
So fear will be the tactic they employ to make the dull numb minded proles believe that they must vote for the corporate royalist's latest lackey.
It'll be guns n god fear. Exactly the kind of whacked out non-issue that they've used to put the non-thinking proletariat masses directly into their hands for the past three decades. . . all that "moral majority" shit that just won't go away despite the obvious absurdity of it all.
Yes folks, be prepared to hear about how Obama wants to take away your guns. You'll be told that he's all for killing innocent babies. And don't forget what his middle name happens to be. . . . yeah, he can't be connected to YOUR god.
Terrorists! They're all over the place and this guy Obama wants to play footsie with em. Yea, footsie I tell ya!
Heeeeee's dangerous.

We got trouble, yea we got trouble
right here in your city
we got trouble
with a capital "T"
and that rhymes with "B"
and that stands for Barrack!

(apologies to Robert Preston and The Music Man)

Billary R.I.P.

In one of the most awkward, inappropriate, neurotic and down right ungracious political moves of the past 50 years, Hillary Clinton last night remained firm in her declaration that she was . . . well. . . whatever it is she thinks she is. I can only think of Richard Nixon's "Checkers" speech in 1960 as an example of something that even approaches the absurdity of what she did last night.

Mr. Obama was gracious to Billary in his words last night. Billary was insulting and antagonistic.

You have become a parody of yourself Billary. You are a national joke. You have made yourself irrelevant.

You have been defiant in the worse way and you have insulted the intelligence of 10s of millions of democrats and other citizens. We are sick and tired of your arrogant condescending bullshit and mock surprised expressions. It's time for you to go.

Mr. Obama would be making a huge mistake making you his VP, which I'm sure his incredible campaign team will not allow to happen. Yea, you got 18 million votes. 99% of those votes will go to Obama no matter what you think do or say. They are liberal democrats and won't be voting for McBush/McCain.

So off with you wench. Be gone. Let others with dignity and grace step up and become the national icons of political women leaders in America. Let those not motivated totally by personal greed and ambition be the examples that our daughters will carry into their adult lives.
You have failed in the worse way. You have failed totally. You have failed as a political leader. You have failed as a woman. You have failed as a democrat and as a citizen of the republic.
Now go, so we don't have to look at your stupid face no mo.

Yea, you and Monica. . . ya both blew it. Think about that for a while
But I suspect that over half of us saw the arrogance and condescension in your attitude from the start.

Barrack Obama is the democratic nominee for President of the United States

Wow. Perhaps we needed to hit the horrible bottom we did the past seven years to rise up and do something great.

I'm a softie. No, really, ask my family. But I don't think a political event has ever caused me to tear up, but tonight I found myself sitting here with tears running down my cheeks.

This is simply the best thing to happen to our country in many decades. Tonight I am proud of my country for the first time in my adult life. This old political junkie will sleep well tonight.

Now, let's make it President Barrack Obama

More insane politics

The Clintons aren't the only ones to lose all credibility in this pitifully executed Billary campaign. Terry McAuliffe has acted like some sort of half crazed, hopped up maniac on national television after every primary. I can't wait to see the absurd show he puts on tonight.

Clinton campaign says she not conceding

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton is "absolutely not" planning to concede the campaign to Barack Obama on Tuesday night, Clinton campaign chairman Terry McAuliffe told CNN on Tuesday.

"No one has the number to be the nominee of the Democratic party right now," he said.

McAuliffe, asked about an AP report that Clinton will acknowledge Tuesday night after the South Dakota and Montana primaries that Obama has the delegates to clinch the nomination for the November presidential election, replied: "They are 100 percent incorrect."

I think a lot of us are sick and tired of this Billary charade and feel like this about Terry McAuliffe and the Clintons in general.

Clinton seeks to go after Obama superdelegates
By JIM KUHNHENN, Associated Press Writer
RAPID CITY, S.D. - As Barack Obama turns to concentrate on his general election challenge, his rival Hillary Rodham Clinton is mounting a last ditch campaign to stay relevant in what is left of the Democratic presidential contest.

The former first lady enters this week with an insurgent strategy not only to win over undecided superdelegates but to peel away Obama's support from those party leaders and elected officials who already have committed to back him for the nomination.

"One thing about superdelegates is that they can change their minds," she told reporters aboard her campaign plane Sunday night.

A mere flesh wound. . .

Clinton defies party leaders; eyes Puerto Rico win
By JIM KUHNHENN, Associated Press Writer 1 hour, 36 minutes ago
SAN JUAN, Puerto Rico - Democrat Hillary Rodham Clinton, newly defiant against her own party leaders, sought a victory Sunday in Puerto Rico's presidential primary that would give her a toehold on an increasingly slippery path to the nomination. . . .

Sunday's vote follows the decision Saturday by a panel of the Democratic National Committee to give each Michigan and Florida delegate a half vote at this summer's convention. . . . .

"This decision violates the bedrock principles of our democracy and our party," the Clinton campaign said in a joint statement from Harold Ickes and Tina Flournoy, two of her advisers.

Seriously, what the fuck is the matter with this person? I'd say she has some serious mental issues.
Are they eventually going to have to cart Billary away in jackets? It seems like it's heading in that direction.

I can hear it now "Mr. Obama's defeat of John McCain is actually my victory and I should be the one enteriing the White House on Jan. 16th. I intend to take this election to the supreme court and have it overturned. . . " while her audience of twelve husky women scream wildly in support.
Sorry Billary, that only works for the republicans who own the supreme court.
