Wow, I wonder long it will take for Conservatives4Palin to quit.

After the fold I have a very adult message for Hillbuzz and Conservatives 4 Palin who tried to drive me and others off the internet.

Republicans boo soldier serving in Iraq and Frothy Mix calls for reinstatement of DADT

September 23, 2011 Leave a comment

Rick Santorum, continues to show that he is nothing but a frothy mix of Theocrat and lunatic calls the abolition of DADT a “social experiment”. He states that gays and lesbians serving in the military are getting special treatment.

I have no idea why all of the Republican field were not given that question. Each and every one should have been given their opportunity to side with bigotry or with gay men and women serving their Country. I know where they would have stood.

Hey Megan Fox – take your “slave” article and shove it.

Wow, splodey heads, other Presidents had someone to carry their umbrella including the Sainted senile one.

President Ronald Reagan had an umbrella carrier. He also had another one for the person who carried his decrepit brain around, when she was not holding a séance in the White House.

Or perhaps the umbrellas were to hide his wife from him

After all there are more than enough stories about the real interests of Reagan and his financial backers.

The Reagan administration had a big problem with childcare issues.

You know the type.The ones that like to use puppies for gain.

Children and war got Nancy excited.

I will gladly take the record of this President and ANY other Democratic President and compare them to the senile, half dead hero that they make Reagan up to be. Small government my big fat arse. The very start of the cancer that turned the United States of America into a debtor Nation.

Strong on “security”? Really, the man who funded the Contras in Nicaragua paid for by selling crack cocaine into the streets of America. Essentially funding and establishing Al Queda. The man who forced ordinary Americans back into poverty to line the pockets of the very richest.

Screw him and his new cronies.

I’m glad he’s like this

So go on suck on this

obama - large

Oh, sorry you can’t so go find this guys

Let them eat dirt

PS Megan, I hope you are angry now.

The right to fucking life

September 13, 2011 3 comments

Republicants screamed YES when asked should an uninsured man die.

They cheered the fact that people in the richest economy in the World die because of lack of insurance, they called that “freedom”.

They cheered the fact that Perry “legally” murdered nearly 250 people including children and a man innocent of any crime.

Republicants put the military and billionaire tax cuts ahead of feeding the poor.

They talk of getting government out of the lives of people but each and every single one of those Presidential Candidates would legislate what a woman does with HER body because while in the womb life is all important, except of course if it is some sort of “terrorist anchor baby”.

This is the modern GOP. “Anti Terrorist” investigations by a man who helped fund terrorism in the UK. Right to life only while in the womb. Never speak out against them for they will try to silence you.

If you watched the GOP debate and did not feel sick to your stomach you are NOT human and you most certainly are NOT a Christian.

A message to the GOP about Mr. Hoffa

Firstly, something that musically hits just the right note.

When a Republican gets shot and a Democratic candidate claims to be the victim then we can speak.

When Democratic supporters storm Town Halls with threats of violence then we can talk.

When Democratic supporters bring guns to Town Halls then we can talk.

When Democratic candidates call for “second amendment solutions” then we can talk.

When a Democratic Presidential candidates call for people to be “armed and dangerous” on ANY issue then we can talk.

Meanwhile why don’t you now go away and go back to discussing your corporate talking points. After all, you missed a whole day not talking about tax cuts for the richest. Your hypocrisy is on Youtube

Ban Kevin Dujan from Sidetracks

August 29, 2011 1 comment

From the excellent Snarkopolitan article

 

 

Kevin Dujan Erasing Reality Again
When Dujans Attack, Even Deleting Won’t Help You!

                                 
Kevin Dujan complaining about deleted comments is like Casey Anthony complaining about bad parenting. But even after the makers of “only@brunch”, a video apparently meant to be shown at his local gay bar, apologized and edited out an offensive remark he complained to them about, they are still the latest targets of his undying wrath, which has stretched now to five  six posts and well over 8,000 10,000 words.**UPDATE** And now includes harassing an anti-bullying charitystarted by famously pro-LGBT straight footballer, Ben Cohen, for the crime of having an upcoming fundraiser at the bar which showed this video two weeks ago.

Let’s cut to the chase immediately: one of the participants in this video made an ill-advised comment about Trig Palin. To be specific, while discussing Michele Bachmann, one man giggled, “She looks like Trig!”  The other men around the table may or may not have heard the comment, which was neither responded to or elaborated on. They continued to talk about Bachmann before moving on to other subjects, and Trig was never brought up again.


That was the whole “attack” in its entirety. It was a mean thing to say, certainly, and stupid. If you nose around Snarkopolitan long enough, you’ll see that from way back, Snarko has no patience with people attacking politicians’ children. Including the children of political opponents. And, it should be needless to say, no patience with attacks on any children, special-needs or not, at all.

 But because the producer of the video has edited out the offending footage, or inch-age, as the line was literally four words, and deliberately avoids repeating them, understandably enough, in his apology, almost nobody knows the extent of the “Attack On Trig Palin,” to whit: barely existent. Which is utterly to Kevin Dujan’s advantage. The less known about what was actually said, the more inflatable it is.

Kevin Dujan Deleting Reality Since Just Ever!

In fact, Dujan’s lovely plans for a leading a crusade in Trig’s name fizzled somewhat when the producer immediately gratified the wishes of anybody who truly wanted satisfaction on behalf of that little boy. Here is the apology posted on theonly@brunch website:
At the beginning of the discussion concerning the Michele Bachmann Newsweek cover, a co-host made an inappropriate reference to Trig Palin, the son of Sarah and Todd Palin.  The comment was tasteless and unjustifiable.  only@brunch, is not and will not be a platform for the deriding or ostracizing of individuals for the way they were born. Nor for the way people chose to celebrate who they are. It is with sincerity, sympathy, and empathy that I apologize on behalf of only @brunch and DowntownCupid Productions for the offensive comment.”

That would seem pretty complete to anyone not utterly dedicated to outrage farming. One of Dujan’s own followers who did see the video before it was edited (as did I),  unwittingly demonstrates that he smells the manure Dujan’s trying to spread, too:

Neil50p· 4 days ago
When I first read your previous post on this and watched the videoI thought the Trig comment wasn’t as bad as I thought it would be. Then I realized how reflexively he made it, and am sure that was only because they make comments like that all the time. It obviously wasn’t the first time he had used Trig as a punchline. (Emphasis mine)

As a follower of the World’s Crappiest Cult Leader, Neil naturally tries to integrate his cognitive dissonance, but it’s clear his first reaction was “Whuh? You mean that’s it?” Then he adds a little interpretive dance number of his own, and feels better, all dissonance smoothed into a harmonic fantasia in the key of outrage sharp, minor.

The producer of the video acted quickly after the first angry comment by”Hillbuzz”  on his YouTube channel.Dujan himself screencapped the exchange, showing that only@brunch producer Jared Hall took just one day to post his apology on his site and on YouTube.


That didn’t stop Dujan from encouraging his Hillbuzzing devotees to swarm the YouTube comments, including this abusive little item, from somebody who thinks “decent queens” disparage gays who lisp:

Hillbuzzer Abusive Comment Courtesy Of Harvey Bilk

  
If only this moral indignation had been felt when  Kevin Dujan, back in August of 2010, asked on Hillbuzz, “Should children of a president never be criticized, especially if they are black?”  What on earth about the President’s daughters, who were, I believe, eleven and nine at the time, Dujan wanted to criticize–but was held back by their blackness from doing,  it is beyond the scope of someone who isn’t an Orc to divine.

Dujan later deleted that entire post, perhaps, I’d like to think, as a result of the scrutiny he received here.  But though he can wipe the schmutz off his own site, evidence of his willingness to attack young children of a political opponent exists onother sites (don’t click unless you’re willing to grind your teeth to stumps):

nellyq
This sounds like the troll that popped up on hillbuzz, shedding bitter tears over comments about the daughters. In reply, I asked sweetly where this defender of childhood was when Sarah Palin’s
children were getting trashed on the left leaning blogs. Never got a response.
. .

Because childhood should only be defended when the child belongs to the right parents.

Dujan admits that “Only@Brunch” did respond to, as he puts it, “great national criticism:” 

Jared Hall and Downtown Cupid productions could have easily edited out the attack on Trig Palin before the show aired; in fact, they’ve subsequently edited this part out of the current YouTube video they have posted (live since 8/21/11) as “Only@Brunch” has received great national criticism for encouraging gay men to bully children (just because they don’t agree with their mothers’ politics).

That “great national criticism” being, of course, ludicrously, his own previous post. He then goes on to hitch up his Crusader tabard and complain about gay mockery of adult conservative Christians, which he describes as “bullying.” Leaving aside the questions of freedom of speech and adults’ ability to shift for themselves, how are we then to view his own spectacularly vicious mockery of Michelle Obama, from her physical attributes, in particular her complexion:

Kevin Dujan Can't Put His Finger On What Is Wrong With Michelle Obama's Face!
to the false “Whitey Tape” rumor he, along with Larry Johnson, promulgated?



By his own definition, Kevin Dujan is a bully par excellence, although he’s spent a lot of time trying to scrub his site of evidence. The infamous Michelle Obama“Whitey Tape” post is gone, although on other sites, once again, theevidence lingers on.  


Likewise, despite his scrubbing, he will always be remembered for his bullying of Shelby, the wife of a soldier KIA in the now deleted infamous USO War Widow Post back in November of 2010. Dujan senselessly attacked her (for not getting off her butt and doing more for the USO!) and, given more than the benefit of the doubt by his eye-rubbing, astonished fans, not only did not apologize, but upped the ante (and a middle finger), comparing himself to Jesus into the bargain.

Kevin Dujan Deleting Reality Since Just Ever!

If Jesus were truly like the Harvey Bilk of Boystown, confessionals would be interchangeable with iron maidens, and penitents would be praying burning rosaries.

Thank goodness Jesus has lower standards than Kevin Dujan.

Three charts to confuse right-wingers

August 29, 2011 7 comments

Here are three “reality-based” charts to show to the right-wingers who spout nothing but FOX-Limbaugh lie machine talking points.  These charts show what actually happened.

Spending

Government spending increased dramatically under Bush.  It has not increased much under Obama.  Note that this chart does not reflect any spending cuts resulting from deficit-cutting deals.

Deficits

Notes, this chart includes Clinton’s last budget year for comparison.

The numbers in these two charts come from Budget of the United States Government: Historical Tables Fiscal Year 2012.  They are just the amounts that the government spent and borrowed, period,  Anyone can go look then up.  People who claim that Obama “tripled the deficit” are either misled or are trying to mislead.

The Stimulus and Jobs

Bush-Obama-Jobs-Chart

In this chart, the RED lines on the left side — the ones that keep doing DOWN — show what happened to jobs under the policies of Bush and the Republicans. We were losing lots and lots of jobs every month, and it was getting worse and worse.  The BLUE lines — the ones that just go UP — show what happened to jobs when the stimulus was in effect. We stopped losing jobs and started gaining jobs, and it was getting better and better.  The leveling off on the right side of the chart  shows what happened as the stimulus started to wind down: job creation leveled off at too low a level.

It looks a lot like the stimulus reversed what was going on before the stimulus.

Conclusion: THE STIMULUS WORKED BUT WAS NOT ENOUGH!

More False Things

These are just three of the false things that everyone “knows.”  Some others are (click through): Obama bailed out the banks, businesses will hire if they get tax cuts, health care reform cost $1 trillion, Social Security is a Ponzi Scheme or is “going broke”, government spending “takes money out of the economy.”

Why This Matters

These things really matter.  We all want to fix the terrible problems the country has.  But it is so important to know just what the problems are before you decide how to fix them.  Otherwise the things you do to try to solve those problems might just make them worse. If you get tricked into thinking that Obama has made things worse and that we should go back to what we were doing before Obama — tax cuts for the rich, giving giant corporations and Wall Street everything they want — when those are the things that caused the problems in the first place, then we will be in real trouble.
