the thing about all those ‘activists’ is that they don’t really care.
some of the people don’t go out and spend their time wanking to internet porn, others make a banner, go out, show it off and then come back home and make an image in their heads of all the good they did with a piece of paper and a pen.
and then wank. – sin
1.) The media eats one of their favored politicians:
For the American public, Daschle became the latest symbol of everything that is wrong with Washington — the influence-peddling and corner-cutting and sacrifice of the public good to private interest. Now that this system has let them down, and left them poorer and anxious about the future, people are angry about it and no longer willing to accept the corruption of the public process and the whole notion of public service.
The irony, of course, is that Barack Obama understood all this and tapped into Americans’ frustration as the central message of his “change” campaign. But even he, with only four years in Washington, failed to see the depth of the problem or anticipate the ferocity of the backlash.

Rules for thee but not for me? I thought that Bush/Cheney were the corruptocrats. No wait, members of this administration are setting records in their race for the cash. It seems that the Left should look in the mirror when it talks about corruption.
2.) The “bailout”, “stimulus” whatever you call it. It’s a crap sandwich with a fecal milkshake chaser. Guess what, we had a “stimulus”. Ace put up this link, it seems that the last highway bill went about as far is Paris Hilton’s acting career.
While banks buy $50 french jets, the Democrats are determined to reward EVERYONE who helped put them in power. With. Your. Money. Not some surplus. Not a slush fund. Your money.
They spend like crazy and they want more. Money gets wasted and they want more. They created this mess and now they want more. NO MORE!!! KILL THE $%$#@ BILL!
JONES—Ain’t r de Emperor? De laws don’t go for him. (judicially) You heah what I tells you, Smithers. Dere’s little stealin’ like you does, and dere’s big stealin’ like I does. For de little stealin’ dey gits you in jail soon or late. For de big stealin’ dey makes you Emperor and puts you in de Hall o’ Fame when you croaks –Brutus Jones, The Emperor Jones by Eugene O’Neill
The Democrats have perpetuated the myth that they know the economy. Uh-uh, They know how to spend. “Redistribution”? “Fairness”? Hogwash. They want us to swallow their socialist agenda and think that all will be ok.
So said White House Chief of Staff Rahm Emanuel in November, and Democrats in Congress are certainly taking his advice to heart. The 647-page, $825 billion House legislation is being sold as an economic “stimulus,” but now that Democrats have finally released the details we understand Rahm’s point much better. This is a political wonder that manages to spend money on just about every pent-up Democratic proposal of the last 40 years.
This is supposed to be a new era of bipartisanship, but this bill was written based on the wish list of every living — or dead — Democratic interest group. As Speaker Nancy Pelosi put it, “We won the election. We wrote the bill.” So they did. Republicans should let them take all of the credit.Wall Street Journal
Hey L.A. Times, just because the Republican’s are “sniping” and ‘stubborn” does not mean you are right about the stimulus/crap on a stick.
Good work Democrats! We’ll enjoy voting you out of office as a reward for your epic FAIL. (and take your toadies with you)
and now on to #2 (and i do mean a no 2.)
Same old, same old. A deserter tells the MSM precisely what they want to hear about combat in Iraq, quits alleging war crimes and abuses, becomes a celebrity on the left, and garners huge praise for his “brave” book by major MSM organizations. Ace on military deserter Joshua Key
More at Blackfive.
I hate these guys. He deserted his battle buddies. Asshats like him perpetuate the stereotype of the “psycho” veteran. They are the homeless people in cammies or the attention whores who shout about war crimes they never saw or committed. We had one grade-A moron who was caught by the soldeirs in our unit. His class-A had awards for battles fought when he was 12. A purple heart and combat action badge that he did not earn. Fake documents. Needless to say our commander gave him 60 days in the stockade (actually he got sent to a civilian prison that has a contract to take soldiers of this caliber).
They are full of shit. Each and every one of them. I hope he gets outed. The Media loses this shit. Soldiers are criminal thugs in their eyes. We never get the fair shake we deserve. Until now. With mil-bloggers on the case, guys like this will know no peace. Until they stop with he bullshit.
