Grand Obstructionist Party

No wonder the local loons like the RNCC so much... they're working from the same playbook!

Tea Activists' Goal: 'No Reform at All'

Greg Sargent: On a private conference call, a group of top Tea Party and conservative organizers offered a surprisingly frank description of their goal, according to a source on the call: Completely blocking any kind of bipartisan compromise, and completely preventing any type of health care reform bill at all from ever becoming law. The source who got himself on the call was an organizer for the AFL-CIO, and AFL-CIO spokesman Eddie Vale provided me with the organizer's notes.

No semblance of decency at all

It's my opinion that the moderators at the Times-Call have an agenda that's been handed down to them.

Several times this year, in direct violation of their own Terms of Service, comments have been approved by moderators that are direct personal attacks on myself - and now my fiancee, so much for being a paper concerned with 'family values'. Apparently if you're on the wrong side of the political equation, your entire family is fair game.

I call on the Times-Call management to follow their own rules for comments and stop this very obvious collaboration with the Santos/Burt/Musgrave hate machine.

The Times-Call's validity as an unbiased news source becomes more questionable each time it occurs since it calls into question the motives of the paper's management.

As for denouncing these tactics, not a peep from the Santos camp.


I'm shocked.

Must be busy sending emails.

Fun with email

I just love how the right in Longmont thinks they have control of the media. It's really cute.

Now they're digging through the electronic trash looking for anything they can use, so you know they're desperate. Especially when they start digging up my emails to council. LOL!

After some of the so-scary-I-called-the-police emails I've gotten, it's hilarious to see someone try and gin up a threat from one of my emails. It's like having a diarrhic chihuahua attack your ankle then mess all over the rug.

Cute but ultimately sad.

This is the kind of folks that want to take control of your town - thugs, smear artists and muck-rakers.

I hope you're paying attention Longmont, this is big Washington politics a la Tom Delay scaled down to home-town size.

There's big money involved and I'm personally certain it's being funnelled (oh-so-carefully-and-discreetly!) into certain pockets.

Someone clearly has been having dreams of flying again... and Erica Jong explained what that was all about long ago.

In general, they're idiots

Charles Blow from the NY Times:

Not only are anti-reformists showing up, they’re terrorizing legislators with their tomfoolery when they do. Blinded by fear and passion, armed with misinformation and misplaced anger, they descend on these meetings and hoot and holler in an attempt to shut down the debate rather than add to it.

I must say that this says more about them than it does about any forthcoming legislation. Belligerence is the currency of the intellectually bankrupt.

Trapped in their vacuum of ideas, too many Republicans continue to display an astounding ability to believe utter nonsense, even when faced with facts that contradict it.

A Daily Kos/Research 2000 poll released last Friday found that 28 percent of Republicans don’t believe that Barack Obama was born in the United States and another 30 percent are still “not sure.” That’s nearly 6 out of 10 Republicans refusing to accept a basic truth. Then again, this shouldn’t surprise me. According to a Gallup poll released last summer, 6 in 10 Republicans also said they thought that humans were created, in their present form, 10,000 years ago.

Let’s face it: This is no party of Einsteins. Really, it isn’t. A Pew poll last month found that only 6 percent of scientists said that they were Republicans.

"I shill for the right wing"

This morning I was awoken by my alarm clock powered by electricity generated by the public power monopoly regulated by the U.S. Department of Energy.

I then took a shower in the clean water provided by a municipal water utility.

After that, I turned on the TV to one of the FCC-regulated channels to see what the National Weather Service of the National Oceanographic and Atmospheric Administration determined the weather was going to be like, using satellites designed, built, and launched by the National Aeronautics and Space Administration.

I watched this while eating my breakfast of U.S. Department of Agriculture-inspected food and taking the drugs which have been determined as safe by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration.

At the appropriate time, as regulated by the U.S. Congress and kept accurate by the National Institute of Standards and Technology and the U.S. Naval Observatory, I get into my National Highway Traffic Safety Administration-approved automobile and set out to work on the roads build by the local, state, and federal Departments of Transportation, possibly stopping to purchase additional fuel of a quality level determined by the Environmental Protection Agency, using legal tender issued by the Federal Reserve Bank.

On the way out the door I deposit any mail I have to be sent out via the U.S. Postal Service and drop the kids off at the public school.

After spending another day not being maimed or killed at work thanks to the workplace regulations imposed by the Department of Labor and the Occupational Safety and Health administration, enjoying another two meals which again do not kill me because of the USDA, I drive my NHTSA car back home on the DOT roads, to my house which has not burned down in my absence because of the state and local building codes and Fire Marshal's inspection, and which has not been plundered of all its valuables thanks to the local police department.

And then I log on to the internet -- which was developed by the Defense Advanced Research Projects Administration -- and post on and Fox News forums about how SOCIALISM in medicine is BAD because the government can't do anything right.

Thugs, Goons and Slime of the Earth

Gotta say I just love the rhetoric I'm hearing from the loyal opposition. Such class.

Sadly, it's virtually all transference and projection.

There's meds for that y'all, I encourage you to seek help.
