Hahaha, oh stop, please. Your killing me.

And if it wasn’t blatently obvious enough that Rudy G, former Mayor of NYC wasn’t a liar theres more info available today.

Apparently RG (as the cool kids call him) billed NYC for his affair with Ms. Judy Nathan.  ANd while RG did ask for forgiveness forhis past, he hid these charges, and now his campaign is trying to keep them mum.

This man shows a lack of respect for his constitents in the past, and has been noted again and again as being hungry for power, and misusing it when he has it.

Do we want him as president?

Or do we want him to point out that “Everything changed after 9/11″…  like hiding the public funding of cheating on your wife.

Look at some of the agencies and thus the people he billed:

$10,054 billed to the Office for People With Disabilities

$29,757 to the Procurement Policy Board.

$400,000 for travel to the Assigned Counsel Administrative Office

….  over all hundred os thousands of taxpayer dollars payed for his extramarital affairs.

17 million to run for senate…

And theres a large contingent of people who want him to design a US budget.

Please people, for the sake of us all, vote for someone with solid ethics.  What a candidate does, and did with their personal lives DOES matter, its a barometer of what they do in office.  No ethics at home= no ethics in the office.

5th of November

For or against him.  It really doesn’t matter. 

Did this un-official 5th of November site meet its stated goal of 100,000 members? 

Not even close, it drew about 17,500 or so when I last looked.

But did it work?

I tuned into see what was going to happen and looked at the numbers starting last night at midnight Pacific time.   

A paltry 2 million.  When I got up for wok it was 4 million, when I drove the half an hour to work and looked again.. 5 million.

That’s the same total November 5th, by 11:30 am pacific, as in the whole 3rd quarter that rocked the MSM.

And its only 11:30 am.

With a quick calculator it’s easy to see that the purported 12 million for the quarter that the campaign was looking forward to by December is within reach.  November may turn out to be a 6.5 million dollar month.  That plus October (3.8 million) is a titch over 11 million.  Almost 12, with a month to go.

Sooooo, what does that actually mean? 

Hillary can blow her nose with that kind of money, Romney already does.

GOP Front runner Rudy G. has 11 million primary and 5 million general election.  If the Ron Paul Campaign hits its target it will be the front runner in all donations for the GOP.  That’s a lot of commercials and guaranteed name recognition.

The Main Stream Media follows its nose to money, it could care less about the actual campaign (UFO questions?  Good Lord) and is a for-profit industry.  Whoever has the most money leads.  It’s that simple.  Remember the adage “If it bleeds, it leads”?  Well, if the Ron Paul campaign nails 12 million in mid December the GOP New Conservatives campaigns will start shutting down.  That’s blood.  That’s a lead story.

If you think it’s time for a change go to and make a donation.  Because that will stir the political pot faster and more effectively than anything else.

Oh yeah, its 11:45 and $5,185,134.57  or about 10k a minute.

Golly They are dumb. Not

Once again today I was told how dumb some candidate was.I really find it hard to believe that a person with absolutely zero background in, well, any field can criticize any candidate.

Granted, you may vehemently disagree with their policies, but does that mean you get to actually impugn their intelligence?

Frankly if you are so smart, you go try and run for some political seat to make a change. Otherwise shaddddup.

Ok, Ok were all allowed free speech in this country (at least until Bush takes that away too), and that allows me to speak my mind. And you, yours.

But let’s get something straight. Until you sit as chairman on a committee overseeing… Say federal finance reform, you don’t get to say that you know more than they do. Until you stand up to a rather massive attack on your character, and survive it to save a city from becoming so polluted its uninhabitable, you don’t get to think your character is stronger than theirs.

I get tired of dishwashers, the unemployed, phone operators, and salesmen of all types espousing how dumb candidate is, when in fact they have little to no inkling of what even the issue is they are attacking or defending, depending on what they heard in a bar from someone as their basis for education.

The latest thing I ran into was about Congressman Kucinich.

I’ll tell you up front, I’m not voting for the candidate, but a man at work was telling me how off base and stupid he (Kucinich) was.

Let’s see the guy I work with is a software developer for a major corporation. He has a 2 year degree in computer science, and is fairly smart. A lot of what he knows is self taught. He is 29 and has been employed in 3 different fields since he turned 18.

About Dennis Kucinich…

All of these facts were gleaned from Wikipedia, and took maybe 5 minutes. I Did it on a break.  If you wnt to know more, follow the link below, If you want to know his stance on various issue, go to his candidacy website.

The Guy who criticized had no clue he was even mayor of Cleveland, or that his wife, London native Elizabeth Jane Harper Kucinich has a higher level of education than most of congress, and has done more in her life than he had. Or has dreamed of.

In short Dennis K has Brains and Balls. And while you may not agree with him, you don’t have the right to think you know better than him just because your life sucks and you want to make small of someone who can’t fight back. So before you think you know more about, oh say Health care than Senator Clinton, or protecting our borders than Senator Hunter maybe you should pull your head out of your over used ass, and study up some so you at least sound like you know what you’re talking about.Remember, talking loud over someone, is not talking sense, it is simply talking louder.

(there I even put in the link and made it big for you so you don’t have to look it up)

Senator Clinton helped in 1997 establish the State Children’s Health Insurance Program and the Adoption and Safe Families Act. Was chairwoman of the Task Force on National Health Care Reform in 1993.

Senator Hunter served as chairman of the House Armed Services Committee during the 109th Congress.

You can disagree, and think another candidate has better idea than any other,  and thats great.  I do.

But chances are that you are not smarter or know more than anyone else. 

You just think you do.

Bush thinks we’ll buy it again

They pulled bombs out of a bunker, on camera in Iraq…  Labeled that they were made in 2006 in Iran.   Of course it make perfect sense tha these labels were printed in the common arabi language…..


The arrogance of this administration is amazing.  I’m officially getting my passport, so I can leave when that asshole tells our men and women to invade Iran.

Do not be surprised when he declares martial law and suspends the elections either.

And reinstates the draft.

and disbands congress for being anti-american traitors.

He is crazy, and I hope he has a stroke and is left incapable of ‘leading’.

we need a new leader and soon, someone to get us out of this stupid war, rebalance our economic system and pull our counry’s collective head out of its ass.

Anyone?  Bueller?  Bueller?

Holy Bazoombas!  GET THE FUCK OUT!

I hope thats straight forward enough for the politicians who are running this war.

The Iraqi govt. asked us to leave.  If a govt.doesn’t want the troops of another country in its borders, it needs to leave.  If not then the scope gets redefined. Its now war against THAT govt.

Americans will pay roughly 8k a piece to fund this efort.  An effort that 70%+  DO NOT WANT!

I say that the 30% who want the war, pay for it, and send their sons and daughters. 

Simplistic?  Yes

Doable? I suppose not.  Polls show that most war supporters are baby boomers.  And their children are all past the draft age.  They don’t even remember WWII, because they were all born AFTER it.

People, please, write your congress person and urge them to get us out.  Out by hook or by crook, I don’t care.  And you shouldn’t either.

or set a goal of how many americans must die first.  3000? Done!  5k, 20k? Maybe when we start losing as many as we did in Vietnam the corrupt officials and numbnuts who run this country will finally be outed enough to bring our valiant men and women home.

The Thinning

While I have patience dealing with people, I don’t in writing, so I’m going to make a short list of the candidates (both parties) to skip. IE there’s no way they will win their party’s nomination, so unless you are looking at the VP slot or to make a splash in the party and change something, they are not worth your time to pursue.

Oh yeah, I am not bothering to put in the people who are not running. Like Al Gore, get over it.












Why them? On the Republican side it was easy, 3 are in debt, (Romney very badly, and someday he’ll stop paying for his own campaign), 3 have no chance and are already nosing up to the three solvent candidates.

For the Dems it was almost as easy. Most have no money to compete with. OF the remaining few that do, their time has passed, and they are jockeying for VP or cabinet positions already.

I’ll detail the 6 remaining candidates in two posts, one for the Dems and one for the Republicans. As for these candidates… Some are good some are bad, but all have passed their prime in some way.

Here comes the pain, again

News sources report donation issues again for Sen. Clinton.  It seems (again) that a republical billionaire donated a lump of money (about 17k) to her campaign after earmarks for the Woodstock museum went through. 

Actually theres nothing special about this, it happens all the time with earmarks.  And that should be the real story in this campaign, whether its for President or any office.   Its business as usual.  Emphasis on BUSINESS.

Here in Washington state, earmarks for  a very small boat making company added up to about 17 mill.  They made a boat for the navy.  Big deal.  Well it is, the Navy never asked for the boat, didn’t want it, and gave it away to the UW, who has it parked and isn’t using it.  Why did this company get these earmarks to build an unwanted, unneeded white whale? 

“Blame it on Sen. Patty Murray and Congressmen Norm Dicks and Brian Baird. All three exercised their political muscle to slip language into a 2002 spending bill to force the Navy to buy the boat from Edmonds shipbuilder Guardian Marine International.”  By David Heath and Hal Bernton Seattle Times staff reporters 

Give me a break.  Use your money not mine to pay back your debts to contributers, not mine.  Thieves, one and all, I don’t care what party they are affiliated with, though I suspect it is the “For my Friends” political party.

(Theres only one politician in washington running for the office of president who the lobbyists don’t bother knocking on his door.)

Heres the article:
