Many people think that Hillary Clinton is the right woman to be president. I think the “wronged woman” is her problem. I was thinking that if Hillary were to be the Democratic nominee, what weakness will the GOP attempt to exploit?
More typically elitist and wrong advice from MSN Money. Wasting money on dying technologies? How much does it cost in monthly smart phone data plans to access movies, TV shows, and music stored in online clouds? How much are the monthly cloud charges for this stored data? What are the monthly membership fees for Hulu, Netflix Spotify, Pandora, gaming, etc. ON TOP of the monthly data package fees (minimum $30 a month) you pay your wireless service for downloading all these things to you smartphone? And the costs of apps to download to your smartphone? Increase those costs if you also have an internet service that you connect to access and download entertainment stuff (and gaming for a separate monthly fee), including additional fees for increasing your allotted bandwidth.
Well, sir, another Christmas come and gone and Fox’s Annual” War On Christmas” Christmas Special has been met with its annual defeat, ensuring it will be back next year for Fox’s Annual” War On Christmas” Christmas Special. You see, the only people waging war against Christmas are the ones on Fox ranting about a war on Christmas. They are, in fact, waging war against the way most of us celebrate Christmas, which is not the way THEY want us to celebrate it. In the Fox world, nobody wants to see a nativity scene with the little baby Jesus anywhere outside of church or private property, which is true. But that still leaves a ton of places to see the costumed doll replicas of the little baby Jesus but Fox apparently has never bothered to find out where any of them are, otherwise it wouldn’t be a “war”, would it?
Let me tell you why the forced resignation of Martin Bashir is such a big deal, and why it’s so insidious. This is meant to be yet another message to liberal reporters and news commentators, or any reporters seeking to report the truth, that it’s hands off high-profile Republicans or you lose access and your job. Media critics and Democrats bewail the low quality of reporting today; how those on the right wing get away with disrespectful and even treasonous statements and are rewarded by their employers with fat contracts and book and speaking deals. Critics complain that there is no real investigative reporting anymore. Why do you think Greg Palast operates out of London, England?
On this 50th "anniversary" of the assassination of President John F. Kennedy, the corporate media in collusion with elements in the federal government continues to perpetuate the "lone assassin" cover-up. Chris Matthews once again displayed why I seldom attach much credibility to him by having Vincent Bugliosi plugging his 2007 book--20 years in the research and writing--attempting to prove all conspiracy theorists are nutjobs. He claims there are about 53 points which prove beyond a shadow of a doubt Oswald did it alone. He rattled off five points with absolutely no proof as to why we should accept them. 3 of the points were: 1. Oswald was the only on the sixth floor of the Texas Book Depository building at the time of the shooting. 2. Oswald shot Officer J.D. Tippit. 3. Oswald pulled a gun on the arresting officer inside that Dallas movie theater. Then Bugliosi cavalierly dismissed all the conspiracy theories claiming every one of them falls apart and has been proven false. Matthews gets his two cents in by ridiculing Oliver Stone's "JFK" movie. Neither one of the mention the The United States House of Representatives Select Committee on Assassinations which found in 1979 there was a 4th gunshot picked up by a Dallas Police motorcycle radio microphone and the assassination was very likely due to a conspiracy. Nope, we're supposed to accept that all conspiracy theories are hogwash just because they say so.
While we're all basking in the glory of yesterday's victory, here's something to unbask in the dissipating glory. Steve Israel, head of the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee, was interviewed on NPR this morning and promptly confirmed that entitlements reform will be on the table, specifically Medicare but I'm sure Medicaid and Social Security will find themselves in the pot as well.
Just when I thought it was safe to be a Democrat again. Sen. John Warner (D-VA) goes and shoots himself, President Obama, and the Democratic Party in all their feet.
Dear Chuck and Dave,
That’s some creative team you’ve got working for you there. Yeah, some creativity coursing through their little minds. No wonder you guys are such a potent political force with such creativity ready to be called upon at a moment’s notice.
I can see what no other person sees. I can see the future crystal clear and in high-def.
If you listened to what President Obama said last night without analyzing his statements, it sounded pretty good and reasonable. Leave it to Chris Matthews to put it into perspective. In essence, it is our job to stop Assad from killing his own people by US (meaning both “us” and the US) killing more of his own people. Bombs and missiles don’t hit their targets 100% of the time. Bombs and missiles fall on innocent men, women, and children who have nothing to do with civil war and chemical warfare. This creates what is called collateral damage. You know the videos of dead children and others Obama urged us to watch online last night? Matthews was correct in saying that after the bombs and missiles fall, the Assad regime will be posting videos of the dead bodies of all civilians who we killed with our errant armament. How humanitarian will we look to the world then? How pissed off and frantic will the surviving, grieving Syrians be when they think that EVERYONE in the world is dropping bombs and missiles on them, that no one will save them, that they are totally and completely alone in their own country and there is not one damn thing they can do about it EXCEPT to fight everyone in the world, including rebels in their own country?
What frustrates me are people who don’t think things through. Everyone who is pushing for direct US intervention in Syria against Bashar Hafez al-Assad is guilty of this. I’ve been guilty as well as advocating a SEAL Team 6-like strike but logically I know it’s impossible. It would be ill-advised also for the reasons I will present.
Politics is a square dance. Change partners, dosey doe, round and round and round we go.
