This is a comment that should be answered by someone who has been a reader of my blog for some time. I’m not even going to bother answering except to post the picture above so this commenter can answer their own question.
I’ll put up my “blackness” up against anyone. Mainly because as someone who has worked tirelessly in the community. I bet I have contributed more money to, raised more money for, helped create more jobs, cleaned up, helped curb crime and violence in the black community than the vast majority of trifling ass Negros who might come to this blog and question my blackness. Plez
Question dude - if you don't edit posts on your blog - why have them delayed for your approval? On my blog I have instant posting and I can remove any spam posts after the fact.
Good point, old habit because I received hundreds of thousands of spam crap when I had another domain.
I’ll turn off for the time being, because I know folks want to see the comments quickly so as to facilitate dialogue.

The "Progressives" of today use neo-con and the Conseravatives of today use "liberal." Either way, it's an attempt to label some other group in a negative way while marketing your own group. Not a lot different then the Crips and Bloods using colors to determine who lives or dies. It would be a whole lot happier and perhaps more productive world if we could figure out what we have in COMMON with each other and work on respecting one another, even when/if we do not agree. Then maybe we could actually get over ourselves and work on common problems. The name calling and put-down "humor" used by so many (especially on the net) reminds me a lot of grade-school and high-school clique attitudes/conduct. The need to climb on top of someone else to get up out of the swamp must be in our DNA. It's the classic "Prisoner's delimma." If everyone cooperated, we could solve a lot of problems. But of course, given self-interest will always prevail, we're going to see a lot of name calling in the next 4 years.
Crap I wanted to keep my Twilight Zone video on top but I had to respond to this shit!
I can take any criticism about my commentary and I always welcome folks to post replies or attempt to read me the riot act for my stances on issues. I love substance and provocative replies and comments I have said many times that I wish more people would comment particularly since I NEVER edit or censor any comments.
However it is comments like this highbrow above the fray arrogant bullshit that really pisses me off.
I find it fucken humorous that now that the magic Negro is president I am reading shit from all of these liberals asking “can’t we just all get along?”
In fact I just came from a place where I grabbed a hot dog and I heard this idiot fuck who actually said “man I’m just glad we got rid of Bush when we did or we would be in some serious trouble everybody is suffering cause he was in office way to long.”
I’m not even going to get into a Bush was an evil mutherfucker debate because he is long gone and is not irrelevant but hardly any comment will set me off quicker than this kind of verbal pabulum.
Do some of you people have your collective heads up your asses? No we can’t all just get along all the fucken time because it is not in our nature for us to all see things the same fucken way.
We differ in our music tastes, so if you were to go to your favorite local hangout and start playing country music some people are going to be offended. Walk into a bar frequented by Missouri fans wearing University of Kansas garb you are likely to get some dirty looks.
Don’t cut you fucken grass and yard Nazi’s like me will give you dirty looks. Drive a fucken car and you have a bunch of stupid Obama stickers on your car and right wing types are likely to cut you off.
You’re a Catholic and Baptists believe you’re in a cult. If you’re a woman with big tits then small tit chicks will give you dirty looks.
I don’t go around in search for people who necessarily have the same values and mindsets or core values. You can be the polar opposite of me politically or socially and we can still hang and have a good time and even work together.
My problems are not your problems. My concerns are not necessarily your concerns. If you are a country club white person who sips Martinis for breakfast you are not likely to have anything in common with some black dude cracking open a 40 before he heads to the bus stop on his way to some fucked up job.
Oh and “grade-school and high-school clique attitudes/conduct” why the fuck do you think people join fraternities or sororities to form social cliques asshole!
Why do some people only frequent certain bars, or why certain people only stick to and comment on certain blogs because it is their sorry attempt to only associate themselves with like minded individuals.
Entire countries engage in an overindulgence of euphoria and pride over a fucken soccer match. People have been killed in brawls over these soccer matches.
People are killed over religion and are killed over gang colors. We make the unconscious choice to isolate ourselves to mold ourselves into groups or cliques. We even choose to live in neighborhoods that reflect our values. Politics is just one of a myriad of self induced barriers.
When Sarah Palin had to endure the shit she did because liberals were scared to death of the notion that some evil whitey Christian chick could possible be vide president they heaped an unprecedented amount of venomous attacks on her and her family and I didn’t see any of these holier than thou sanctimonious commentary from leftist castigating the fucks who tried to destroy her personally not to mention her family.
A mutherfucker even went so far as to try and burn down her church to show his contempt for her and the community who supported her.
So now that the Magic Negro is at the helm, all of a sudden NOW name calling and personal attacks are repugnant.
Oh and I just love this “If everyone cooperated, we could solve a lot of problems.” Now either the person who posted this is in grade school, or they just posted this bullshit just to get some kind of response, or they have the intellectual capacity equal to that of my keyboard I am now beating the hell out of.
Let me see, there are individuals playing professional sports who are on teams with the ultimate goal of winning a championship, billion dollar franchises and there you have players (T.O) in Dallas for example who just can’t get themselves together mentally or emotionally to achieve that common team goal.
People will flock to their respective churches and there will not doubt be countless congregations that fight over simplistic shit like which hymn to play or who will read the announcements or who will lead their respective choirs.
The countless individuals who populate work environments across America who will no doubt sell their souls to the devil for a chance to backstab a co-worker.
Some after reading this will no doubt ride down the highway and there will no doubt be some dickhead who will clog the fast lane in his or her attempt to maintain order on the roads.
Some man tonight will fuck around on his significant other and some woman will return the favor. Someone will screw their best friends’ girl and some woman will sleep with their best friends’ husband, tonight YES TONIGHT.
A Muslim will try and kill a Jew, and in another country someone will be murdered because they have completely different political ideals and values and YOU Mr. or Mrs. Anonymous want to come here and lecture I guess me and this blogs audience about can’t we all just get along, and we need to work together and other assorted kumbaya bullshit. Plez!
I will never proclaim that I am attempting to change the world by ranting on some little blog only a few hearty souls will read and would dare say that because I spill the venom here and not take it with me into the world keeps me from blowing someone’s fucken brains out.
Whoever the fuck you are if you believe that by taking your time to come and lecture us is somehow saving the fucken world you are painfully mistaken and woefully misguided.
The human species although capable of great things can also do great harm as well.
That is just simple reality.
You change the fucken world by doing, not lecturing people on a fucken blog.
You folks have a great weekend!
To Serve Man:
This leadership team will create the most honest, most open, and most ethical Congress in history.— Speaker-Elect Nancy Pelosi (D-CA), Press Release, November 16, 2006
What a difference a one term makes, and the magic is spreading…
There are more, but it's time to move on, right?
“I didn’t come here to be partisan. I didn’t come here to be bipartisan. I came here, as did my colleagues, to be nonpartisan, to work for the American people, to do what is in their interest.
The president’s agenda is reflected in this legislation. It’s — I mentioned, some of the priorities that were there about creating jobs, cutting taxes, helping states through this difficult economic time, and to do so in a fiscally sound way.
People vote for what they believe in. Clearly, the Republicans did not believe in the agenda that I just described for you, and that’s probably one of the reasons they voted that way. I think they probably voted their conscience and they couldn’t support that. …
We reached out to the Republicans all along the way, and they know it. And they know it. They were part of the original bill, with the — some of the tax provisions were their suggestions. They had what they asked for in terms of committee mark-up. They had the rule on the floor that gave them plenty of opportunity to make changes. They just didn’t have the ideas that had the support of the majority of the people in the Congress. ”
Some of us Neocons like to tease liberals, and there are a number of lists out there highlighting liberal dogma and their idiosyncrasies.
You Know You're a Liberal ....
If you think the answer to ANY crime, infraction, or injustice is counseling
If you think that the Constitution is a living document and should be changed but the writings of Karl Marx are "written in stone".
If you believe that posting the "Ten Commandments" in schools will hurt the children, but putting "Heather Has Two Mommies" or "Ask Alice" (on the internet) won't.
If you don't want the Christian Right imposing their morality on you, but you want to impose big government on everyone else because they won't do the right thing.
If you think that "dumbing down" America's school kids is compassionate but holding them to high educational standards is "mean spirited", racist, bigoted, etc.
If you think that pouring blood on a $1,500 fur coat is a sure-fire way to get your message across, but if anyone protests outside an abortion clinic, they're extremists!
You pale at the execution of child killers, but defend the killing of unborn children as an expression of choice.
You think a moment of silent prayer at the beginning of the school day constitutes government indoctrination and an intrusion on parental authority, while sex education, condom distribution and multiculturalism are values-neutral.
There are many more, feel free to add your favorites, hell lets make a competition out of it because any reasonable or sane individual using common sense can see through and process the fallacies of liberalism.
For someone in Pelosi’s position to claim that she's “nonpartisan” is not only illogical but just downright silly.
Liberals in their core believe that their logic and insights are superior and they truly believe that their way of governing and ruling is vastly superior unlike the ways of you country ass, flag waving, gun toting, redneck, war mongering cretins on the right.
I have always said that I have the ability to decide on who I’m going to vote after listening to ONE campaign policy or ideals speech.
The first politician who says “I will give” or “I will provide” or “I will help bla bla bla.”
will never get my vote.
I don’t want my elected officials to do jack shit. I know this line of thinking is antiquated and unreasonable because all politicians today have been conditioned to think in terms of daddy politics.
Liberals have an endless streak of co-dependency and liberal politicians frankly get off by languishing in the problems of the masses and they feel like they must fix every fucken problem in the world.
We all know co-dependents in our lives, individuals who have that obsessive and often inappropriate interest for the problems of others.
Go to any website and look up the descriptions for co-dependency.
Google University research has the following:
A codependent person can be in distress from trying to change themselves or feel shame over their own thoughts and feelings that are in conflict with the problems of another.
A person with codependency issues can appear to be very insecure and instable but also controlled and rigid. Codependency can vary from having a minority complex and feeling dependent on what others want and think, to megalomania, wanting to rule the world and proclaiming not to need any one. The house of a co dependent can be squeaky clean with every object in its place, or be in chaos.
A few characteristics that describes your typical liberal:
Problems with loving yourself; look at all of these white liberals now beating themselves up because since the election of the Magic Negro “it’s not cool to be white anymore.”
Problems with setting boundaries towards other people: Liberal politicians and their obsession with this country becoming a nanny state. Look at that moron Bloomberg wanting to regulate food additives and taxing soft drinks or the Magic Negro chastising companies over CEO’s pay or the purchase of jets and other crap or wanting to highjack our paychecks to subsidize failed businesses so that people can go back to work at failed fragile companies.
Problems with self awareness and ones own reality: Easy just review what that idiot Pelosi said she’s “nonpartisan” I think the bitch seriously believes that.
Problems with expressing this reality in a controlled way: Megalomaniac liberal politicians, Magic Negro, Pelosi, Harry Reid, any Democrat.
Or liberal talk show hosts, TV personalities, Hollywood leftists, news anchors, liberal bloggers all express this air of superiority and who promote the never-ending notion of “fairness” or even the notion that they can have a reasonable dialogue with rogue moronic dictators, or the notion that increasing the minimum wage helps poor families or that paying taxes is “patriotic”
Unfortunately these people are now ruling the roost and all that is left for now is for us to simply sit back, try to be humorous about the situation and like Rush says hope that the Magic Negro and his socialist policies fails.
To many folks in this nation are plagued by the psychological neurosis of mediocrity, hopelessness and self loathing which is exactly the type of political atmosphere liberal Democrats like that turd Pelosi thrive in.
Nonpartisan my ass.

I found this video on Hot Air and I watched it and the cynic in me just kept shaking my head in disbelief.
You mean to tell me that it is now necessary for slick advertising and video executives to produce a video promoting the virtues of being a fucken Republican? Are you kidding me?
This is exactly the reason why the very notion of belonging to some fraternity or social club was always so abhorrent to me.
Why was this video made? To promote “conservative” values or to show you people that the Republican Party does indeed have a significant number Negros, Asians and other assorted flavors, see we are the party of “diversity.”
That kind of shit just does not matter to me.
This video is about money and promoting the notion that you need to belong to some political social club in order to have your personal political values validated.
Maybe I’m not a team player or I simply resist the temptation of belonging to a group whose values need to be molded and remolded to force fit individuals inside a shrinking tent.
Don’t get me wrong, in my usually caustic tone I’m just venting a little frustration because everything I thought a Republican was supposed to be back in the day is slowly disappearing.
Producing a Madison Avenue quality video in an attempt to visually massage the collective Republican ego is not only unnecessary it is frankly insulting.
Maybe some who watch this video may become patriotically aroused but you should not need to be visually stimulated by cutaways of old Abe or American flags because core political values and beliefs come from the heart and are engrained in the soul.
Nobody had to teach me to be a conservative, I did not watch any conservative promo video or attended any right wing lectures back in the day for me have the values that I do.
It is obvious that right wing egos have been bruised by the political will of the Magic Negro and people are now having to look in the mirror and are realigning their minds repeating to themselves “being a Republican” is the right thing, over and over questioning themselves and having their own coming to Jesus moments.
I would equate this video with folks need to keep their weekly church appointments. Walking into God’s sanctuary reciting some scheduled scriptures and a few Amens is kinda like a spiritual chiropractic visit.
Repeat after me “We are Republicans”, “We are Republicans” “We are Republicans”Show that team spirit, and don’t forget to open your checkbooks, oh and we also take plastic and PayPal!
New York magazine reports that ad agencies are suddenly eager to cast young girls who look like Sasha and Malia Obama to sell products.
But wait, hold the phone! Is that even possible? Marlene Wallach, president of Wilhelmina Kids & Teens, says the First Daughters are tough subjects to match because, “It’s a very specific age and a very specific ethnicity, so there aren’t that many girls that would necessarily fit the bill.”
Um, what? It's difficult to find cute young black girls? What city/country have you been living in? What you really meant to say is, "Damn, I guess we really should have had more than one black model on our payroll before now!"
Ty Inc., the Beanie Babies company, is already cashing in on the craze with dolls named "Sweet Sasha" and "Marvelous Malia," which have already sold out despite the toy makers denial that the dolls are based on the Obama girls (nice try, Ty). Oh I see it took the election of a Negro to convince whitey that little black girls are marketable.
This is so fucked up on so many levels.
An official from NPHC at OSU, the umbrella governing organization of the school's four black fraternities and three sororities, said the moratorium was a result of "multiple incidents of violence within the NPHC community" in November. The Lantern points to at least one incident that followed the OSU-Michigan football game in November where firearms were allegedly involved.
Although some members are worried that the ban on social activities will cut the black Greek system off from the rest of the community, as well as affect fundraising, none of the member organizations have spoken out against the move. "Agree or disagree, everyone has supported and abided by the moratorium," said an NPHC official.
Anytime I am in a setting, I hear someone speak so glowingly, and admiringly about Lincoln as if he was the second coming of Jesus H. Christ, I get a massive headache!
Hence this old post below. I recycle almost anytime someone mentions his name just to relieve the headache.
Maybe it is my personality, I believe in revealing the entire history both the good and the bad and when I have to listen to people like the Magic Negro and every historian blathering on about Abe’s “greatness” I just take issues with that.
Hence the following:
Abraham Lincoln "was a racist who opposed equal rights for black people, who loved minstrel shows, who used the N-word, who wanted to deport all blacks," a veteran journalist and historian says.
Below is some stuff you won’t see in history books nor come out of the mouth of historical scholars.
*Lincoln publicly referred to blacks by the most offensive racial slur. In one speech, Lincoln said he opposed the expansion of slavery into the territories because he didn't want the West "to become an asylum for slavery and niggers."
* Lincoln was, in the words of one friend, "especially fond of Negro minstrel shows," attending blackface performances in Chicago and Washington. At an 1860 performance of Rumsey and Newcomb's Minstrels, Lincoln "clapped his great hands, demanding an encore, louder than anyone" when the minstrels performed "Dixie." Lincoln was also fond of what he called "darky" jokes, Mr. Bennett documents.
* Lincoln envisioned and advocated an all-white West, declaring at Alton, Ill., in 1858, that he was "in favor of our new territories being in such a condition that white men may find a home ... as an outlet for free white people everywhere, the world over."
* Lincoln supported his home state's law, passed in 1853, forbidding blacks to move to Illinois. The Illinois state constitution, adopted in 1848, called for laws to "effectually prohibit free persons of color from immigrating to and settling in this state."
* Lincoln blamed blacks for the Civil War, telling them, "But for your race among us there could not be a war, although many men engaged on either side do not care for you one way or another."
* Lincoln claimed that "the people of Mexico are most decidedly a race of mongrels. I understand that there is not more than one person there out of eight who is pure white."
* Repeatedly over the course of his career, Lincoln urged that American blacks be sent to Africa or elsewhere.
In 1854, Lincoln declared his "first impulse would be to free all the slaves, and send them to Liberia; to their own native land." In 1860, Lincoln called for the "emancipation and deportation" of slaves.
In his State of the Union addresses as president, he twice called for the deportation of blacks. In 1865, in the last days of his life, Lincoln said of blacks, "I believe it would be better to export them all to some fertile country with a good climate, which they could have to themselves."
MORE ABOUT OLE ABE!
Lincoln said: "I have no purpose to introduce political and social equality between the white and black races. There is a physical difference between the two, which, in my judgment, will probably forever forbid their living together upon the footing of perfect equality; and inasmuch as it becomes a necessity that there must be a difference, I ... am in favor of the race to which I belong having the superior position."
Sounds like a fucken white supremacist!
He also said, "My paramount object in this struggle is to save the Union, and is not either to save or to destroy slavery. If I could save the Union without freeing any slave, I would do it; and if I could save it by freeing all the slaves, I would do it; and if I could do it by freeing some and leaving others alone, I would also do that.."
His intentions of fighting the South did NOT lie with abolishing slavery, but to save the Union. Even though Lincoln died in April of 1865, the Thirteenth Amendment which abolished slavery was not instituted until eight months later, nearly three years from his "slave freeing" Emancipation Proclamation.
Another Lincoln quote was, "Your race suffers greatly, many of them by living among us, while ours suffers from your presence. If this is admitted, it affords a reason why we should be separated." - quoted from John Hope Franklin's book, "From Slavery to Freedom"
So Lincoln had little experience with black people. There was terrible problems of slave unrest and white violence in older states like South Carolina and Virginia where slaves had been bought and sold for generations. In Illinois the problem was ignorance and prejudice. Along with his neighbors, Lincoln believed that Negroes were probably inferior to white people. He didn't believe they had the mental capacity to hold the same rights as white people like voting or serving on juries. As a result of his beliefs, he called grown adult black men 'boys', and told stories about "pickanninnies", "Sambos", "darkies", and "niggers".
It wasn't until he was 19 that he traveled out of Illinois and experienced slavery markets in other states. On his trip he and his partner were attacked by seven negroes and had to fight them off. It wasn't until he was 28 that he finally spoke out publically against slave markets. However, on another one of his trips out of the state, he saw "12 negroes' chained together, who were enjoying themselves, joking amongst themselves and having a good time. He commented later that they were the happiest creatures on board the ship and it was a blessing that God didn't give them the awareness of their plight. Most southerners believed that the slaves had a good life as 'they were a child race' as Jefferson Davis was quoted to have said.
if you are not, then you’re a fool.
We know what’s right so listen well;
if you don’t want to go to hell.
We are kind, and good, and right;
we want peace, don’t make us fight.
We’ll show you all a better way
if you will let us have our say.
Just sit there mute, with open eyes,
and listen to why we despise
the other side, who want to steal
your government, and so we feel
only morons don’t realize
we clearly see why we despise
all those who took our power away;
they’re greedy thieves who want to sway
the hearts and minds of weaker folk;
if you believe them, that’s a joke.
We know the law and all the facts
you’re just stupid if you can’t see that
we know what’s best, in peace or war,
we’ve told you that ten times before.
We’re the liberals, we’re so cool
and if you’re not, then you’re a fool.
Why won’t you listen when we say
be just like us
for better days.
Where everyone is helped to be
the type of folks we like to see.
The ones with which we can agree
about what’s best for liberty.
We will speak out and tell you true
you are so dumb without a clue.
Why won’t you listen? You must be
another blight on history.
Our eyes are clear, our motives pure.
We’ve got the answer. We’re the cure.
We’re the liberals. We’re so cool.
Join us soon. Or stay a fool.
Represents rural northern Florida. Blue Dog who considers himself a leader in congress on fiscal responsibility. He criticized the bill for "not address[ing] the the issues that we know are at least partly responsible for the economic downturn, and that is years of irresponsible fiscal policies rooted in out-of-control spending and borrowing." See here.
Rookie from 2nd district of Alabama, which is relatively poor--- more than 17% of people in the district are below the poverty level. Probably thinks of himself as Blue Dog. Former mayor of Montgomery.
Bright's buddy from Alabama, representing the 5th distrist. Likewise, serving in his first term. From the rural, northern part of the state.
Represents massive 7th district of Minnesota, which is largely rural, and was historically held by republicans. Peterson has held the seat since 1991, and is viewed by both parties as a moderate who truly straddles the fence.
Kanjorski has been in Congress since 1984. He represents the 11th district of Pennsylvania, which is largely rural, but contains cities like Scranton and Hazelton. Kanjorski actually has some reasonable, principled, objections to the bill and the process through which it was drafted. He has released a statement that is available on his website here.
One of his biggest objections is that only $90 billion of the bill is allotted for infrastructure, and that much of the money in the bill will go to urban areas, instead of rural ones (like his district). Being from Pennsylvania myself, I like this guy, think he is a true blue democrat, and will vote for the final bill if more of the money goes to infrastructure. He's being honest here, not just politicking.
11th district of North Carolina. Very competitive district and not very well established congressman. Quoted in the press characterizing the bill as filled with pork. Rumor has it that he's angling for the other senate seat from North Carolina.
Well-known pol from Tennessee's fairly liberal 5th district. Seat is incredibly safe. Cooper basically characterized the bill as being full of pork and signaling business as usual in Washington. Calls himself a defecit hawk. See here.
Fromn the conservative 8th district of Indiana, which includes Terre Haute. Was just relected to a second term in 2008.
1st term congressman from Idaho's 1st district. Only Idaho democrat in congress. As a point of reference, George Bush received 69% of the vote in that district in 2004. He has expressed concern about the size and scope of the bill (i.e. that it includes much more than provisions that would create jobs). See here.
1st term congressman from Maryland's conservative 1st district. In all fairness, Kratovil is on incredibly shaky footing. He won the seat by less than 1% of the votes cast in the district, and was probably helped by the fact that the republican incumbent was unseated in the primary, which allowed Kratovil to square off against a lesser known opponent. About 2 weeks ago, the freshman Congressman was busy offering trite platitudes about the stimulus plan, but never said anything substantive indicating why he would oppose it.
4th district of Mississippi. Votes with republicans more than 50% of the time. A handful of Mississippi newspapers tried to reach him after the vote, but he was unavailable.
Among the members who characterized the bill as being full of pork, none provided a detailed accounting of those items in the bill that they believed were wasteful. Besides, I'm not sure how voting against a stimulus bill designed to prevent America from sinking deeper into recession.. one that will hopefully create jobs and prevent us from seeing unemploymeny rates north of 15%... I'm not sure how such a vote is good policy, let alone good politics.
As one commentor below notes, what are these members going to do? Go home to their districts and say, "Well folks, at least I voted against the stimulus package because of all that pork." We'll have to wait and see.
Immigration advocates point out that many legal immigrants use ITINs, so it would be impossible to outlaw rebates for everyone who uses this form of ID in tax returns.
Republicans who were involved in negotiating the bipartisan economic stimulus package would like to avoid the illegal immigration debate as the $146 billion bill comes to the Senate this week. Congressional aides say the problem is that the IRS is not a law enforcement agency, so it doesn’t check immigration status when people file tax returns.
"You knew! You knew when you said you hope Obama fails, you knew what was going to happen."
They're taking it out of context. I knew they would. But here's the thing. You see, ladies and gentlemen, I very seldom talk about my marketing strategy because my belief is: You execute it. You don't tell anybody about it. You don't prepare 'em for it. You just do it. You know, why tell people how you plan to separate them from their money, for example? You just do it. I'm talking about retail and public relations, marketing plans. Okay. Here's the circumstance. It's just a window into my fertile mind. Here we are. The new president is obviously running as fast as he can to the liberal left. I have known it since I first started studying him. I have known he's not a moderate. I have known he's not a centrist. I have known that he doesn't want to take anybody's ideas that are not his.
He'll say he does, but he is who he is. He's an extreme radical leftist who talks a conservative game to mask it. His demeanor belies the fact that he is who he is. From his demeanor, you'd never think this guy is a radical. You would never think he's an extremist unless you took seriously who his mentors are: Jeremiah Wright, Father Pfleger, Louis Farrakhan, the whole list of these people that we weren't allowed to talk about during the campaign. I mean, Obama's telling the Republicans not to listen to me, but it's okay for him to listen to Jeremiah Wright, for example. So in my mind, I know who he is and I know what he's going to do. I have no doubt, zero doubt about where Obama wants to take this country and why.

Re: The Republican Problem
Date: January 29, 2009
The House Republican Leadership put its Members in another politically untenable position yesterday: trying to reclaim the mantle of lower taxes and small government -- at the exact time when economists of every ideological stripe agree that government investments are the only way to get our economy moving again and make us competitive for the long term.
So yesterday, while we are facing the greatest economic crisis in decades, Republican House Members ended up voting unanimously against:
* Jobs in their own communities
* Tax cuts for 95 percent of American workers
* Long overdue investments that will transform and grow their economies to compete globally
* Critical services in their own communities, such as police officers, teachers, and health care
Instead, their substitute did not create as many jobs and it increased the number of people subject to the Alternative Minimum Tax.
The hypocrisy of the Republicans complaining about the process does not obscure the record of recent Republican leadership:
* 2.6 million American jobs were lost in 2008 alone.
* The national debt has almost doubled in the last eight years; the debt borrowed from foreign countries has tripled.
* The Clinton Administration left a record budget surplus. President Bush turned it into the worst deficit in American history.
* We face an economic recession unrivaled since the Great Depression, as a result of years of failure to invest in our own global competitiveness, failures to bring common sense to Wall Street and our housing market, and tax policies that favored massive corporations and most affluent individuals.
This is not the first time the Republicans in the House have unanimously voted against a needed economic package. The last time, in 1993, when Democrats voted for tough action to clean up after Republican economic mess, not a single Republican voted for the legislation that produced record surpluses and a balanced budget.
Once again this week, as another Democratic President and Democratic Congress worked to address historic deficits and recession brought on by Republican mismanagement of the economy, not a single Republican voted for the legislation. There's a pattern here of Republican economic mismanagement and Democrats stepping up to do what's needed for the good of the country while Republicans acted in a partisan and irresponsible manner.
Here are some reactions from liberal blogs:
GOP won't support economic recovery even as Americans gettting unemployment hit highest level recorded
Stimulus Package Passes House Without 1 Republican Vote
Obama To Get Congress Wasted After Vote On Stimulus
The Politics Of Stimulus
"one fears that the logic of the election means that many Republicans who might otherwise have been open to a real compromise - or at least less partisan rhetoric - are no longer in the Congress. The remaining rump will seek ideological purity and attack the president from the get-go. Having ransacked the Treasury for eight years, I guess they have to earn back their fiscal cred somehow."
Republicans Keep Digging - The stimulus bill passed in the House, and not one Republican voted for it.
They were beaten like a drum in the last two elections. The recent Republican occupant of the White House broke all records for unpopularity. A new Gallup poll shows that there are only five Republican states (i.e. states in which a majority of respondents identified themselves as Republicans): Utah, Idaho, Wyoming, Alaska and Nebraska, which rank between 34th and 50th in population. These facts suggest that the Republican agenda has basically no support, and the Democratic agenda is what the American people want.
Stimulus Passage Unleashes Night of the Living Dead Republicans
The Republicans unleashed their inner Church Lady and demanded contraception be cut for the sinfully promiscuous poor, then complained they didn't "get" anything in the bill and turned the whole thing into a well-choreographed publicity stunt. They looked like a bunch of petulant, narcissistic brats and did a nice job of making Obama appear measured and statesmanlike by comparison.
Folks I’m sorry for repeating, but I just don’t understand why the Democrats and idiot liberals cared so much about Republicans voting for this bill. Well I mean, I know WHY… but if I were a Democrat (Lord forgive me) I would be jumping for joy, rejoicing that those loser Republicans didn’t want to take part in helping people create jobs and reviving the economy.
If Republicans are wrong for supporting it and the Magic Negro is able to put a chicken in every pot and new spinner rims on Negros cars then that would mean that Democrats would rule the country forever because they are smarter and kinder.
AGAIN these mutherfuckers won, they rule the country, and they have their Magic Negro in place. All should be well in lily white liberal land.
(CNSNews.com) – In a blow to President Barack Obama who went to Capitol Hill seeking Republican support, not a single Republican voted for the Democrats’ economic stimulus plan on Wednesday. The so-called American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009 passed the House Wednesday by a vote of 244 to 188. Eleven Democrats also voted against it.
The lawmakers gazed in awe at the figure before them. The Goracle had seen the future, and he had come to tell them about it.
What the Goracle saw in the future was not good: temperature changes that "would bring a screeching halt to human civilization and threaten the fabric of life everywhere on the Earth -- and this is within this century, if we don't change."
The chairman of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, John Kerry (D-Mass.), appealed to hear more of the Goracle's premonitions. "Share with us, if you would, sort of the immediate vision that you see in this transformative process as we move to this new economy," he beseeched.
"Geothermal energy," the Goracle prophesied. "This has great potential; it is not very far off."
Another lawmaker asked about the future of nuclear power. "I have grown skeptical about the degree to which it will expand," the Goracle spoke.
A third asked the legislative future -- and here the Goracle spoke in riddle. "The road to Copenhagen has three steps to it," he said.
Sen. James Risch (R-Idaho) begged the Goracle to look further into the future. "What does your modeling tell you about how long we're going to be around as a species?" he inquired.
The Goracle chuckled. "I don't claim the expertise to answer a question like that, Senator."
It was a jarring reminder that the Goracle is, indeed, mortal. Once Al Gore was a mere vice president, but now he is a Nobel laureate and climate-change prophet. He repeats phrases such as "unified national smart grid" the way he once did "no controlling legal authority" -- and the ridicule has been replaced by worship, even by his political foes.
Go ahead and read the rest. All this piece did was irritate me, I should have had my cup of coffee with hot coco mix and Irish Crème BEFORE reading. I’m in a cranky mood and thinking about this global warming retard so early in the morning is enough to fuck up my entire day.
I should not be shocked, because people today are such mentally lazy fucks that they continue to see Al Gore as “an expert,” when dude is nothing more than a buffoon, a clown, a court jester. With temperatures plummeting in some regions, record snow and ice I’m still hearing about global warming bullshit, what the fuck.
What makes it worse when you read this article is not one single solitary politician has the balls to look this bastard in the eye and say “shut up, just shut the fuck up, you don’t know what you are talking about, why are we wasting valuable political time listening to you when this global warming bullshit is nothing but pure unadulterated crap. Go away just go the fuck away.”
Even the most hardened moronic liberals are now finally starting to see that this global warming crap is nothing but a fucken hoax. Not even the magic Negro is talking about it.
Dude just take your fat ass and your tainted Oscar and your millions that you have made off of promoting this hoax taking advantage of mentally challenged liberals who lacked the common sense to reasonable question your assertions. Go find an island, sip on some fruity adult beverage and just go the fuck away. PLEASE!
Cue Twilight Zone music please…

Booker Rising response:
Tell us how you really feel. Now, I know that I at times jokingly use the term "colored". However, I use it when describing black folks on the rise, and to subtly show from whence we've come. "Darkie" - a term that black folks have never embraced - should not be used by any black person, even in jest. One can criticize President Obama without the name calling. I also disagree with this post, because it ignores Black America's class diversity. Have folks forgotten that 74% of Black America is not poor?!
Let me just say for those people who are not familiar with my brand of sarcasm and my 100 percent unfiltered commentary I may come across as insensitive, angry, mean whatever. But what people who come here must understand is what I put down on this little blog of mine is exactly what I would say to your face in casual and friendly conversation over a few beers or a few shots of tequila.
I’m not a writer, I’m not a television pundit, and I’m not some hot shit radio or television personality.
With my oversized afro, my NCAA 2009 football obsession, basement smelling like Nag Champa listening to the stereo blasting everything from James Brown to Jay-Z I’m as black as you can get without the ghetto vernacular, saggy pants, gold teeth and the baby daddy drama.
As Rush has said on his show for years and I’m just borrowing the mindset, I demonstrate absurdity by being absurd.
When I first started blogging I had numerous complaints about my free wielding use of the words “darkie” “nigger” mutherfucker, fuck you, whatever.
But one thing I do hope people take from my blog is that I’m sincere in what I am saying and I have experiences enough in my life to be able to bring some semblance of understanding coherence to the things I post about.
Let me be clear, repeating what I have said to my readers many times. I love what I see when I look in the mirror and I’m proud of my blackness and I want black folks and ALL Americans to succeed.
I don’t have a problem with Booker’s response, in fact nobody appreciates them more than I do hell I wish more black folks would visit and comment ESPECIALLY those who disagree with me. He was also gracious enough to add me to his sidebar and I have already noticed a lot of folks visiting from his site and if any of you folks are not familiar with Booker, check him out.
But my bottom line is y’all got to get past my language and you can’t take offense at my colorful use of language from time to time.
I can’t be any other way, if it really bothers some of you let me know and I will try to clean it up.
But cut a brotha some slack and punch me in the eye for the substance of my posts and not the colorful language.
Oh and on his point “Have folks forgotten that 74% of Black America is not poor?!”
Nobody knows that better than I, but its liberal white people who think that all black folks are like the Ho in the You Tube video below and that all black folks are on welfare. This is why you always hear liberal white people and ghetto pimp black liberal Democrats say they care for black folks by doing silly shit like raising the minimum wage, increase welfare benefits, reparations, ect, ect ect.
Doors didn't open automatically for Obama’s predecessor either. While making a hasty exit from a 2005 press conference in Beijing, former President George W. Bush tugged on the handles of a door, only to find it locked.
Bush laughed off the blunder, but the pictures still live on as part of Bush's lame duck legacy. However, there was little note taken of Obama's rookie mistake.
It up to over 145,000 views! Damn!
(CNSNews.com) – The Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee has launched an online petition for readers to express their outrage at conservative talk show host Rush Limbaugh for saying last week that he wanted President Barack Obama to fail. The petition includes a 19-second sound byte of Limbaugh, saying, “If I wanted Obama to succeed, I’d be happy the Republicans have laid down. I don’t want this to work.
So I’m thinking of replying to this guy, say ‘okay, I’ll send you a response, but I don’t need 400 words, I need four: I hope he fails.’”On Tuesday, in a note at the top of his Web site , Limbaugh responded to the Democrats' petition: "I am greatly puzzled. Why would the Democrats petition against me if I am doing such terrible damage to the GOP?
"Last Friday, Obama advised Republicans to stop listening to Limbaugh if they wanted to get along with Democrats and the administration. “You can’t just listen to Rush Limbaugh and get things done,” Obama said to Republican leaders who met with the president to talk about the stimulus package. On his radio program, Limbaugh noted that just as he wants Obama to fail, Obama wants Limbaugh to fail.
DCCC Executive Director Brian Wolff, blogging on the DCCC Web site, said Limbaugh has given Democrats "a preview of the outrageous Republican attacks that are on the way against President Obama and every Democrat working for change."
See this is why I hold Democrats and liberals in such contempt.
YOU FUCKERS WON! You are now in charge of the damn country why do you give a fuck what Rush or any other right wing talk show host says?
You don’t need Republican votes, Democrats can squash any debate, Republicans have no teeth so why not just ignore them ME and lock them all of us in the irrelevancy closet?
Liberals are trying to force all of us Americans who votes against this ignorant fuck to support him no matter what, to bow down to his stupid ass and we are all suppose to just sit back and keep our mouths shut fuck that!
Read what this jackass is saying about Rush:
Rush Limbaugh is worried. His anxiety might have something to do with his precipitous weight gain. Also, his speech patterns are showing stress. The normal enthusiastic, even jovial, oom-pa-pa of the instrument has become labored, dogged.
It’s a hinge moment for the Limbaugh career. The advent of the Obama administration and the sweeping gains of the Democratic Party, together with the disorganization and enfeeblement of the Republican Party, could be an incredible opportunity for Rush. He could become the remaining voice of the right. On the other hand, he could be marginalized out of existence. If the economy trumps ideology, if Obama makes progress neutralizing the political wars, that’s bad news for Rush.Right now Rush is being played.
The Obama dinner with conservative columnists, shortly before his inauguration, was as much about excluding Rush as coddling the columnists. Not only did the conservatives fawn, but Rush fumed. It got under his skin. Indeed, the rumor that he might in fact be there (likely coming from the Obama camp), and then his evident lack of an invitation, highlighted the slight. He’s tried to make it out to be a political point ever since, but mostly he sounds like a guy who’s hurt he didn’t get invited to the hot party.Its stupid fucks like this dude who think that this is only about Rush, if Rush were to go off the air today, yes we would be sad, disappointed but liberals after all of these years Rush has been on the air still believe that we on the right are incapable of thinking for ourselves and processing the stupid and corrupt shit Democrats engage in every fucken day.
Many of us on the right who know better don’t like the Magic Negro and think that his socialist bullshit will wreck the country. Proposing and supporting legislation to give the government more control over our banking system, bailing out failed shitty car companies, giving more money to corrupt criminal organizations like ACORN, promoting taxpayer supported baby killing YES WE WANT THE MUTHERFUCKER TO FAIL, DAMN RIGHT!
- Britain was just three hours away from going bust last year after a secret run on the banks, one of Gordon Brown's Ministers has revealed.
- City Minister Paul Myners disclosed that on Friday, October 10, the country was 'very close' to a complete banking collapse after 'major depositors' attempted to withdraw their money en masse...
- But 60-year-old Lord Myners was accused last night of being 'completely irresponsible' for admitting the scale of the crisis while the recession was still deepening and major institutions such as Barclays remain under intense pressure...
- Ruth Lea, economic adviser to the Arbuthnot Banking Group, said last night that it was 'highly irresponsible' for Lord Myners to reveal the scale of the problems because it could serve to further wreck already fragile levels of confidence.
That might seem a little hyperbolic, but I assure you it's not, because Ms. Lea doubtless speaks for many in positions of authority who would criticize telling the truth about our modern banking system if their doing so would not simply draw more attention to the problem. But even then, they see the wrong problem: they see confidence as a cause, rather than an effect, of a functioning banking system.
The cause-effect difference is obvious if one puts it in a little different perspective. Let's say that you discover that your friend's husband is cheating on her with his secretary. Because she is ignorant, your friend has complete confidence in her marriage. Telling your friend the truth will likely wreck her marriage - her confidence in it will be destroyed. To not tell your friend the truth means that she will be deceived and betrayed, not only by her husband but her friend, until that day that she pays him a surprise visit at the office and learns the truth for herself. You will not have saved your friend's marriage by withholding the truth from her, nor will you likely be able to save your friendship if she discovers your duplicity(1). While in ignorance, your friend may have confidence in her marriage, and it may even have the appearance of being functional (this is the government's attitude: it is better for you to live happily in ignorance) but it is a sham that will - must - someday fail.
The major result of the government valuing this ignorance/confidence as a cause of sound banking is that it must generate that confidence through all manner of symbolic measures - interest rate adjustments, guarantees, even show trials - designed to 'save' the marriage by keeping the betrayed partner ignorant of the truth. To stand Churchill on his head, in banking, falsehood is so precious that should always be attended by a bodyguard of lies.
A good sign tho because this mutherfucker compared me to Hitler. I’ve gone from being compared to racist old white ladies to Hitler. High five!!! Sweet…

Responding to President Obama’s recommendation to Republican congressional leaders last week that they not follow Limbaugh’s lead, the conservative talkmeister said on his show that Obama is “obviously more frightened of me than he is Mitch McConnell. He's more frightened of me, than he is of, say, John Boehner, which doesn't say much about our party."
Rep. Tom Price, who heads the conservative Republican Study Committee, did not take kindly to this assessment in an interview with Politico Tuesday.
“I think that our leadership, Mitch McConnell and John Boehner, are taking the right approach,” Price said. “I mean, it’s easy if you’re Sean Hannity or Rush Limbaugh or even sometimes Newt Gingrich to stand back and throw bricks. You don’t have to try to do what’s best for your people and your party. You know you’re just on these talk shows and you’re living well and plus you stir up a bit of controversy and gin the base and that sort of that thing. But when it comes to true leadership, not that these people couldn’t be or wouldn’t be good leaders, they’re not in that position of John Boehner or Mitch McConnell.
Yup and we on the right should just ignore the fact that most of you Republicans are a bunch of spineless, gutless, unprincipled retards who unfortunately care more about kissing liberal Democrat ass than promoting conservative values.
This party will remain irrelevant until all of these old white country club elitist fucks die off or are voted the fuck out of office.
Most of them follow in the mode of John McCain and as Rush said the Magic Negro doesn’t fear these people because he had made these RINO’S his bitch!
Here you have this pathetic con man DEMOCRAT who is guilty as sin and this bastard can appear on this show with a bunch of retarded trifling ass women and he is treated better than any right leaning figure that might appear on this show.
I must give this man some dap because he is playing the victim card really well and by appearing on this show with an audience of mildly retarded women (throwing out the I wanted Oprah for the Senate Seat) card and all he has to do is tease his hair a bit and plead his case, tap that ignorant bitch Joy on the knee a few times to be flirtatious and I bet half that idiot audience left saying “he is so misunderstood, and he has nice hair!”
Need another indication that Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin is eyeing a 2012 bid? Today she launched a new political action committee, SarahPAC, to dole out political donations to Republican candidates.
“SarahPAC believes America’s best days are ahead. Our country, founded on conservative principles and the fight for freedom, must confront the challenges of the 21st century with integrity, innovation, and determination,” states the PAC’s Web site, which boasts that the governor of the oil-rich state is committed to “energy independence.”
As conservative blog RedState.org notes, Palin has a busy calendar, including anticipated appearances at the Republican National Committee’s winter meeting later this week, as well as a speech at the annual Conservative Political Action Conference gathering in late February.
The governor has also reportedly tapped Washington, D.C., power broker Robert Barnett to help her ink a book deal amid rumors that she’s seeking as much as a staggering $11 million advance.
Palin also continues her campaign against the media, which she blames for treating her and her family unfairly during the 2008 presidential campaign.
For 8 years, life was good and easy for the liberal political cartoon community--they had George W. Bush & Dick Cheney to kick around. With hardly a care in the world, they boldly spoke truth to power, at immense personal risk to themselves, and quietly stacked their Pulitzers for being so bold and courageous and funny.
Then along came Barack Obama--the cool, handsome, African-American incarnation of JFK & Abraham Lincoln (no less). What were the professional sketch satirists to do?
"I had all my villains in place for eight years and they've been taken away," lamented Pulitzer Prize winner Pat Oliphant, one of the most widely syndicated cartoonists. "I don't know that I've ever had this experience before, of a president I maybe like. This is an antagonistic art. We're supposed to concentrate on finding things wrong. There's no point in drawing a cartoon that's favorable."
Did you know that Barack Obama is our first truly American president?
Well, according to Emmy Award winning commentator John Ridley he is.
The following insulting segment was aired January 22 on Los Angeles's PBS station KCET
h/t Hot Air via NB reader Thomas Stewart):
My first reaction was to laugh out loud at this, but then I had to take a step back, just think this crazy fuck is dead serious, or dude was high as a kite when he did this, or no explanation necessary he is just another retarded bloviating Negro attempting to kiss the Magic Negros ass so he can be invited to the next Black House chicken and waffles dinner.
This shit is just so stupid on so many levels and folks we is just gettin’ started.
House Republican Leader John Boehner issued a statement over the weekend noting that the stimulus bill wending its way through Congress provides $4.19 billion for "neighborhood stabilization activities."
He said the money was previously limited to state and local governments, but that Democrats now want part of it to be available to non-profit entities. That means groups like ACORN would be eligible for a portion of the funds.
Sen. David Vitter, R-La., told FOX News Tuesday that the money could be seen as "payoff" for groups' political activities in the last election. ACORN generally supports Democratic candidates and actively backed President Magic Negro last year.

Countries? ...I don't recall our Pravda media disclosing that when Obama was running for office? That's more information than we got in two years of campaigning.Barack Obama finally talks about his Muslim family members to Al-Arabiya network yesterday in his first formal TV interview.There was so much information in this interview that I've started a second post.Here is the video via Copious Dissent:
