commentary on Politics and a little bit of everything else

Editorial……Lets get something straight Rep. Clyburn…..Greene ran as a DEMOCRAT in your state…..Where was the party?

I’m beginning to get annoyed at Rep. Clyburn…..

His noise is getting louder…

But it negates a fact….

Alvin Greene ran as a Democrat…..

Stop blaming the Republicans if you got no proof….

Greene paid the $10,400 to run….

(I’d like to know where he got the money…but he produced it)

He was charged with a crime in the state….

Strange….he hasn’t had a hearing or a court date from what I’ve read….

WTF?

Listen…What the hell is going on down there???…

The story runs…but goes nowhere….

South Carolina looks like an Amateur Hour State….No the Democrats look like the Amateurs actually…..

Clyburn should shut up…..

If the local DA doesn’t pursue the charges against Green …

They should be dropped…

If no one can prove there was voter fraud….

His election should stand….

And the leadership of the South Carolina Democratic party should gone….gone….gone….

They screwed up……

Big time…

And Rawl should go home…he lost……

To a no name black guy…..

Yep…..

In South Carolina……

Editorial……The Government Should NOT take over BP…….

Those of you here know where I come from….

Yet this BP Gulf Oil Spill has got me a little annoyed….

First I see people on here saying President Obama is responsible for the Spill???

WTF did he do?

He doesn’t drill for oil…..He’s a politician….

Now I hear some real idiots crying for the US Government to ‘Take Over BP and the Oil Pipe leak action’…..

It goes from the sublime to the ridicules!

Would you let a cop operate on your mother is she started bleeding and couldn’t stop?

Of course not!

Listen people…..I got news for ya….

As I said from the jump…..

People are going to have to wait on this….

I know that doesn’t sound reasonable to the people in those Gulf States…But that about what is going to happen…..

Let me review something I have pointed out ….

The UNITED STATES GOVERNMNET doesn’t drill for Oil…

Certainly not in  5,000 feet  of water…..

Another point…..

The oil spill…even at its worst represents less than 1% of the oil below water in the Gulf of Mexico….

Something else to think about…..I know it sounds assine..but that well is a really good one……That BP will eventually cap and DRAW MORE OIL FROM…..

The oil that they draw from the leaking well will probably cover any and all fines that the government will end up collecting from BP….

I Save the best for last…

The fact is…… this country consumes oil and gas at HUGE levels…

There is no way the President of the United States is going to keep……OIL companies from continuing to drill for oil..

It is in this countries National interest to keep pumping oil out of the earth…..

While the people on the Gulf coast are screwed today….Those state’s  economic life depends a large part on …..

YES…..

Oil……..

Is BP gonna get a big bill……Yes…

Will they probably have to change their name again…..Yes

No matter home many rules, regs or policies does SHIT HAPPEN?……Yes

As someone pointed out at this site….

All those states have Republican’s in charge…..

You know……. The Same people who complain about Washington…..

Isn’t it ironic that these same people are complaining that Washington isn’t doing ENOUGH?

Obama sends 1,200 National Guard Troops to Mexican Border……Editorial

Here we go again…..

This is something I mentioned to someone here a few days ago…

There has been all this talk about an Immigration Bill….The same thing happened with President George Bush…

Bush was the Governor of Texas before becoming President…His brother’s wife is Mexican-American….So when Bush got pushed a little bit on the Illegal Immigration problem….

He initially proposed trying to work out a solution for the people here and for the border…..

That didn’t happen….

Instead we got the same thing initially happen that is coming from President Obama…

National Guard Troops going to the Mexican Border to support Border Patrol in NON-Combat roles

Obama …like Bush WILL FIND IT HARD  deal with the Immigrants in this country….

As soon as they even think out loud about addressing the problems of immigrants IN THIS COUNTRY for a while…….

They will be shouted down and assaulted by the hard-edged reality of the anti-Immigrant faction….

This will of course do nothing for the 12 + Million Immigrants who live and work in their country…..but the anti-immigrant faction doesn’t very much care about these people…

As a matter of fact they just as soon see them put in a rowboat and shipped out to sea….


Now those 12 Million aren’t ALL MEXICAN’s …..Nope…That fiqure is composed of people from Russia, Ireland, Guiana, India, and other places…..

But the postcard picture is from Mexico…….


The troop thing….Well we tried that before…..It ain’t squat……

It’s just a political move…..To aplease the Right and  anti-immigrant people….


Obama is going to find out that Immigration is a big fat ZERO!

Framed by people who are afraid and against what America HASN”T been  for the last 10 to 15 years….

And don’t tell these people…

We all are from visitors from other countries…..

It is what makes America…America……

And Strong

A little on Ole' Arlen's loss yesterday…..An Editorial…..

Arlen Specter.…The distinguished Senior Senator from Pennsylvania lost his bid for another six years in the Nations Congress….

The Democrat voters of his state have paved the way for him to end his career in early January of next year……

While the media talking heads and net’ Doctor’s scream about all the Bullshit…..

The Dog would like to say his piece…

Arlen Specter a lot of people don’t know…….’ran for District Attorney (of Philadelphia ), on the Republican ticket as a registered Democrat ‘….a won  big….In 1965 ……He served in that position for eight years……for the next seven years after he left the DA’s office he lost several chances to get elected to public office as a Republican…..

He won election to the US Senate in 1980 and has been there ever since…..

While the media crows about Ole’ Arlen..the fact is the man has severed his country and state well…

He is 80 years old, tough, erasable and pretty sharp….

But the real reason he lost yesterday isn’t about the national incumbant wave like the media and GOPer’s would like you think…

It’s about basic politics…

Ole’ Arlen IS old….That he couldn’t get away from….

Sestak is a fairly young man who  is a Democrat and doesn’t have the baggage of being a REPUBLICAN for the last 30 years…

In this day and age in of politics the simple fact of having a history is a disadvantage period…..

Arlen leaned on Obama…who needed him for Healthcare and few early votes…..

But could not or would not come back to his rescue for his own personal gain…..

Healthcare is going to demonstrate repaeatily the fact that presidents have a different constituency that congressmen…

They all know that…

But it’s terrible to watch in action….

Congressmen ARE expendable to president’s ..they always have been…..

The final fact is primaries themselves….

Because the dynamic for primaries favor the more involved REGULAR party voters..which never go above about 20 to 25% of the general voting public…..a lot of politicians find primaries the toughest race they have to run…

They must please the party people who don’t necessarily agree with what can be ACTUALLY passed in Congress…then track back with the knowledge that their opponent and the media will hold them accountable for the BS they needed to say to the primary voters….

Ole’ Arlen did his stay……

Now it’s time for a new batter……..

A conversation……..The Dog and Terry……Laura Bush…..And secret Liberal leanings……And Editorial

In response to the Oligrahkings  Laura Bush Book Review….I give you this conversation and Editorial view…..

Terry….

…….one night after work on the way home whole listening to Laura bush on larry king live on my Sirius radio she stated she is pro gay marriage and very pro-choice on abortion. goes to shoe after years married to a right-winger did not change her views but was VERY quiet for 8 years in the subject. also i knew and read she was a liberal democrat before she married W. in 1977…….

The Dog……

Terry an excellent observation!…..

If you listened close to BOTH her….. and her husband your saw a little of that here and there over the time her husband was in office….

The party line comes first for a politician….

It is one of things I dislike about politics…..

The Politics 101 question in College…

Do you rep your constituents and give up your personal beliefs?

It is one of the reasons I don’t really like the hard right look at things….

Change is a basic fact of our existence….
Things change then….. other things change…..
It is ludicrous to expect the Constitution to be looked at the same way…… 300 years after it was drawn up…….

The times ARE different……

We would be still in the middle ages if we didn’t adapt to change…
Nature adapts all living things to changes……

By changing THEM…..

Nuff said……..

Editorial……Getting used to a Nuclear Iran….

It’s time to get the point…….

Nobody is going to stop Iran from getting a Nuclear weapon…….

There I’ve said it….

The Dog believe that in the end its going to happen…

While the United States keeps carrying on about sanctions…..

The Iranian’s plod on…..

While the State Department trys to get coöperation from Russia and China on sanctions….

The Iranian’s plod on….

While Israeli’s and other countries intelligence services try to sabotage the effort Iranians efforts….

The Iranian’s plod on….

Statements have been made quietly in the open media that an attack by the Israeli’s …or United States will set the effort back…..

But will not stop it….


With all that in mind….

It comes to this…

What will the world…and the Middle East due to cope or counter Iran…

With a nuclear bomb?

That’s where the discussion should be going……..
