Pete Stark [D-CA] gets mad at mr 24%

Pete Stark tells it like it is - but now some dem talking heads want him to apologize.

Why? Because it's true? Does Congress not like truth thee days? Seems so.

Next? What? Hearings and bills in both houses condemning "persons" who say bad things about mr 24%.

Bad for my TV

Learned during Nixon's tenure to shut off the TV rather than to start yelling at it...or worse - toss something at it : - )

So that's exactly what I did when Steve King, a republic from Iowa got his allotted 1 minute and put up a chart that had the letters SCHIP going down the left and it read thusly:
Hillarycare for
Illegals and their

Figured then that the real issue was not about health care or insurance for children - it was another TV op spot for republics to show their hatred of the American people.

And those republics voted to stick with mr 24%...

Even tho that ship is going down - and many are leaving - the rats that voted to uphold the veto are staying with their "man."

Mr. 24%

Okay - not surprising - the shrub now has a 24 % approval rating...

I keep asking myself who are those 24% who still approve of this war-mongering, dry drunk who thinks vacations are the best use of his time.

It seems to me that the religious right wingnuts have moved away from him as he disappointed them by not catering to their religious agenda. He said the right things to get their votes but did not move any legislation to make them happy. So they are not in that 24 %.

The "real" conservatives - those Republicans who think the government should spend less and conserve money - well - at the rate the shrub spends - not only are they not in that 24% - some actually have become Democrats and more are thinking about a party switch.

So we are left with the neo-cons - those who want endless war and endless profits for their corporations. Good thing it's only a portion of that 24% of the population but I'm guessing they are in control of a majority of the companies here and elsewhere in the world and they have ties to all those dictators who also love money more than their countries.

Who are the others in that 24%? I fear it's the psychopathic/sociopathic personalities for whom hate, fear, terror and torture are uppermost in their minds. The shrub and his party have unleashed the darkness of these persons and they feel they have a right to kill, torture and maim - in in the name of protecting the shrub.

Look what has happened this week with the S-CHiP legislation. The 24%ers are stalking, urging mayhem, murder and all sorts of nastiness on children whose families dared to say they made use of S-CHIP.

Scary. These 24%ers are persons without a conscience - no empathy and no feelings - just like their "leader."

It's why we need a rational, emotional being in the presidency - psychopathic leaders create an atmosphere wherein psychopaths feel free to operate.

Investigate Rudy G.

Another in the series of the "Real Rudy" from Greenwald.

Read - watch and sign the petition

We have been deep in research, interviews and editing (23 versions!) about Rudy's failure to fix the radios the firemen used to communicate on 9/11. It is as deeply troubling a story as we have seen. Rudy is running for office on how he handled 9/11 and here we have proof positive that firemen were killed because his administration did not fix the long-standing (since 1993!) problems with the radios.

This BNF investigative report calls attention to four key questions about Rudy's handling of the broken radios from firemen's families and experts:

* Why was nothing done to improve FDNY radio performance for seven years after a clear need was demonstrated in the 1993 World Trade Center attack?
* When new radios were finally ordered, why did the city block other companies besides Motorola from bidding on the contract?
* Once Motorola was given the contract, why did its cost jump from $1.4 million to $14 million?
* Why were these new radios never tested?

These questions should and must be investigated. New York City councilman Eric Gioia has the power to begin an investigation. If we can garner enough attention and signers, we have a major opportunity to help launch an investigation.
