  • In case you didn't know, "Obama has complete contempt for our founding principles." You having fun yet? *sigh* #
  • For years (coupla decades, actually) I predicted that the oligarchs would impose some form of capital strike. They did. And here we are. #
  • TeaBaggers, in their authentic ignorance, mis-read the Constitution. Yuppies, in their hypocricy, are of course more sophisticated. #
  • Rand Paul is in with 53%. Wish I could like him. Would be good to hear a Libertarian voice now and again. *shrug* @CharlieFoxtrot #
  • #FiscalConservative Okay, then legalize pot. You'll save a fortune. C'mon kidz, admit it: TeaBaggers are US version of brown shirts. #
  • @kpcmonk Tashi Delek! Thanks for the ReTw … I hadn't seen you in the bushes here … good to know you're there. best to sangha here. KC: #
  • /me drinking cheap beer and eating breaded fish (No, not the frozen kind) … suspect I'm gonna punch a wall b4 the night is done. *sigh* #
  • "Most diverse GOP ever" … ohhhhh yaaa right, 13 or 14 Afro-US VS 40+ Dems … f'n hell everyone's allergic to facts! #
  • #YEG – PC MLA explains why he hadn't paid $8K in property tax: "My wife's fault; she was distracted by her vacation." Oh, well heck then … #
  • Meanwhile, in the rest of the world: Iran schedules death by stoning for a woman, tomorrow. (Authorities jailed her lawyers. Thugs' trick.) #
  • I wonder: will TeaBaggers go for their guns if they don't get their way? Betcha some will / would. #
  • Rand Paul … all the class and stage presence of a door to door vacuum salesman. Yikes. Senator. #
  • Rand Paul put 2 thoughts together just now. I know that for a fact. Cuz he stretched/reached for 3 … and didn't make it. #
  • Since when have individuals in USofA had to balance their household budgets?! Rand Paul, paradigmatic TeaBag lunatic. Raving-style loonie. #
  • What neither yuppies nor TeaBaggers dare grapple with: nobody has balanced their personal consumption. (Well yaa I have. But I don't count.) #
  • Gov says, "Hey fisherman, nice rod. Here's a net". And Rand Paul types say, "Oh no you don't, wealth comes from individuals. Fuck your net." #
  • Rand Paul put it very well … American poor / vets are now free to sleep in filth, under bridges and in ditches. #
  • I'm on the record as a leftie, year after year calling for the strong clear voice of conservatism. I get US TeaBaggers. Zounds / gadzooks. #
  • BTW, even if this sounds silly: know a friend who hasn't voted? are the polls still open? chances are s/he is a Dem. Get him/her up&out! #
  • R U good with languages? Tell me, is this mad-man singing in Spanish? Italian? http://bit.ly/9201oJ (#RainbowFamily Panama 2005) #
  • Finally, someone has brought it up: 1) social conservatism and 2) American exceptionalism. Nuthin' good to be had from that. #matrix #
  • OMG ODonell's in. "The Deleware electoral system will never be the same" … yaa, no shit. (She spoke a sentence of more than 7 syllables!) #
  • If yuppies (Libs or Dems, whatevuh) were at all open / cooperative I could suggest a communications strategy y'day / last yr. They aren't. #
  • The ship ehr plane of state was in a steep dive. Obama's policies pulled it out of that spin. But Dem policies "didn't work"?! GOP = BS. #
  • Well, I've been following this … not a lotta things flip-flopping … I predict "No Blowout". #election #
  • @SunFoundation Hi there – Always good to have a "Contact" channel of some sort. Mebbe it's just me, but audio lvls seem low now. -6 / -9dB. #
  • @SunFoundation More precisely, I think Paul is down -6 at least. And Bill is lower yet, by a good bit. Don't want /any/ red, but close. cya! #
  • Horse-race in Nevada? could it be? my last data says Reid with 51% … now maybe that's like 3 polls, but still! #Dems #election #
  • OMG John Boehner sounding like a parliamentarian … a line in the sand against TeaParty thugs … omg he choked up! wow … #
  • Anybody wanna implement my "decision-based / participatory deliberation" discourse system to keep GOP's feet to the fire, let me know! #Gov2 #
  • Know what that usually brings? Someone gives me a shit-eating smile and I'm supposed to give over decades of work. "Prats" is under-stated. #
  • OMG it's true: MSNBC data shows Reid 51% / Angle 44%! http://elections.msnbc.msn.com/ns/politics/2010/nevada #
  • OMG that freak O'Donell … from her speech I thought she had won! haaaaa such a maroon she is! #NutBars #
  • uh-oh … Reid has dropped back to 50%. And it's rural areas not heard from yet. He, of course, does better in urban. Uh-oh. #
  • @soopa Wow, #cafebedouins … it's been so long I haven't see that I had forgotten about it! #
  • @craigthomler One of these days someone in that circle will figure it out and knock me right out of the park. #Gov2 in reply to craigthomler #
  • In the end: TeaBaggers will show themselves to be lame, GOP will grid-lock the House, and Obama's plans will be seen as sane. 2012 victory #
  • Wanna wipe the floor with GOP in '12? Hear what those lame-ass cracker TeaBaggers were talking about. Catch on. Get it. Grok. #discourse #
  • In the age of restraint and sustainability dear old Welch (former CEO General Electric) councils GOP become "party of growth". *head/desk* #
  • Dear old Jack Welch … still talking about bigger pie. "Rising tide" bullshit: the oligarchs are stealing the f'n bakery! GOP dinosaurs. #
  • Bloomberg's Al Hunt nailed it: on tax rises, growth of economy, and TARP recovery folk got the facts /wrong/ by 2:1 … facts don't matter?! #
  • Q: how did Reid put a W in his column with Dems having such a poor showing in rural American? I thought his goose was cooked. #
  • @SpellDelaware The back-story to that tweet: what I heard from her was a victory speech. I believed her. My bad. Won't happen again! in reply to SpellDelaware #
  • Tonight's Charlie Rose rockin' … gonna tape this (tomorrow) and make notes. #
  • "People feel it's out of control." Fine. Democracy, proven again. But it's a shitty solution. Cuz folk have been rewarded for eating shit. #
  • @JudsonPvoss Hi there – I'm getting a blank page at http://judsonvoss.com … 'nite #
  • #YEG – I just heard that Wild Rose Alliance is calling to have police and fire on a user-pay basis. That's a bad joke, right? Right?! #
  • @chrislhayes re: "moral failure", that's how fundie TeaBaggers feel (i.e. valence) about debt, personal and gov't … which loads things. in reply to chrislhayes #
  • Is it just me? Obama's "grey at the temples" now looks like a whole head of salt&pepper. #
  • @KayeRosario Sorry, I got 404 on that link … ShrinkLink.co.uk not found. in reply to KayeRosario #
  • Okay, so what's the take-away? Obama should a) change his middle name, b) become Christian and then c) apply for US citizenship. #matrix #
  • Maybe cuz of my infantry basis … I watch y'all flattering yourselves at the level of strategy, but I'm facts-based: talk tactic. #

  • Think of good efforst this way: the economy could be in much worse shape. The election results could have been much worse. You expect more? #
  • @Mickeleh I wish Arrington was less high-handed. And I wish Calicanis was mmmm more adventurous. 1 man's view. cc: @sjvn in reply to Mickeleh #

  • Dear Dems – Watch any sports? Oh-woops, E on short-stop, didn't make double play. Wooops fumble football, no TD. Is that //*FAIL*//? C'mon. #
  • Dear TeaBaggers *Gack Ptui!* NB: Mort Zuckerman, CEO Boston Properties Inc. opposes tax continued cuts. Give your f'n heads a shake! #borg #
  • How depressed am I? In my best moment I totally repudiated technocracy. But good god, doesn't anybody around here even know how to drive?! #

  • @GlenAllenWalken I know your heart's in the right place Big Fella uh-ehr I mean Sir, but I bet GOP obstruct. will pave the way for Dems '12. in reply to GlenAllenWalken #
  • HST "folk don't like the way it was done"; Health Reform "WH lost the narrative". But hell no, no participatory deliberation, no way. #borg #
  • The liberal class's failure is dead simple: yuppies just want to preen. Mutural admiration society is their idea of politics. Screw you! #
  • You have to realize: the yuppies who've been selected / positioned to implement #Gov2 0 are those who will make max buzz / min impact. #borg #
  • No self-respecting bourgie would let an honest tuh gawd activist within 5 miles of power levers. That's KKKulture 101. Grow up. #
  • wow Minister Clement blocks potash take-over?! #
  • Layton calls for mechanism to provide more transparency for Investment Act. There's the call, yet again. Nobody moves towards it. *sigh* #
  • Deploy the sytem for Parliament then flog it to CSIS here and NSA/CIA/Congress in USA … lead-pipe simple. Meh. Just slack? or corrupt? #
  • The potash deal as case in point: there was a decision reached by deliberation. It was neither transparent nor participatory. No discourse. #
  • NB If the decision had been For, it would have been just as closed. With Liberal gov't? or NDP? No diff … the system is gamed. #matrix #
  • Let's say you want to look into the potash decision. Search through dozens of web sites to find bits and pieces … days of detective work. #

  • @thomasknoll Kinda like the cheap thrill that comes from back-stabbing / booting someone who's down / success by cheat: addictive. cheers in reply to thomasknoll #
  • Strategy to index un-structured information for access: 1st recognize that X, Y relates to M, N via A, B, C. Now we can normalize for J, K. #
  • *sigh* Shudda stayed in Peace River Country. Or hills of Cape Breton. Or the monastery. This has sucked the will to live right outta me. #
