My book is beginning to come through. Of course the DNC will come to bail out the cities, its for the children. We are going to make a push here to give the Federal land to the state. They own 51% of our state and resources which is why we have 25% unemployment.

That has to change.

....soon Baltimore will be bankrupt and I can see it coming.

If Detroit does get a Washington bailout, look for dozens more large and small cities to declare bankruptcy and demand their 'fair' share from Santa Washington.

I wrote to my Rep about the very first bailout bill in 2008 that, once you start with the bailouts, where does it end? He responded by inking a comment on his standard reply that he agreed. [He had voted for the first one, but didn't vote for the follow-up ones.]

City bailouts will turn into a disaster. Although the FED can just print more money, even that 'bill' will eventually come due.

Surely the Geraldo Rivera nude selfie hitting the internets today is newsworthy.

http://twitchy.com/2013/07/21/geraldoselfie-fox-news-senior-citizens-sideways-topless-selfie-sparks-geraldoing/?utm_source=autotweet&utm_medium=twitter&utm_campaign=twitter

“and lo I saw a #Geraldoselfie on the internets, and I saw the eyes of man melt before its countenance and his skin was wrinkled like a desiccated goldfish, and the very image of it laid every man low, scowling in terror. Beware the #GeraldoSelfie, my brothers, for it stalks you in the night, tearing at your soul, and devouring every goodly virtue.. Truly I say to thee, woe to those who gaze unto the #GeraldoSelfie, for the @GeraldoSelfie gazes into thee also.....

Listened to part of the This Week panel earlier. They spent about 20 minutes talking about racial relations and problems.

Listening to the FNS panel. They are talking about racial relations and problems.

==

We have devolved back to the 1960s. The various panelists and hosts are using the same rhetoric as that from the 50 years ago. The Community Divider has managed to divide the Nation.

I guess these are NYC campaign ads. I guess this is how they run up there. Strange but it is NYC you know.

"numerous protests yesterday and not one arrest."

Compared to the MILLIONS of Tea Partiers, at countless events, and no arrests!

And how is the third party going to happen Bob? Who will fund it,how long will it take to get going? What happens in the interim while the dems have 45% and the other two parties split 55%? What happens ten years from now when you are still dissatisfied with the third party since they won't be 100% pure either and you demand a fourth party. How's all that going to work Bob,just dying to hear.

With all due respect to those here who disagree, my only interest in the Republican Party these days would be brought by people planning to form a third party with the goal of (first) DESTROYING the Republican Party even if it means the Demoviks win again (which they will in any case).

The whole “take over the Republican Party” or “take back the Republican Party” thing ain’t gonna happen. The blue state big money and the likes of Boner and McChurian hold all the cards.

Otherwise, you are doomed to “looking forward” to the big Jeb Bush v. Hillary Rodham Rodham Rodham 2016 showdown—aka Puke City.


I couldn't agree with you more!!! I wonder how many other voters feel the way you and I do. Can't some pollster run that one out? IMHO the GOP will be darn lucky if they hold the House and I really doubt they can at their current level of under performance.

Great post Tom. There is no doubt that zero and his handlers have set race relations back in the country at least 30 if not 40 years.It was quite easy as well. All they had to do was make everything that the dear leader did seem racial and with a willing media once again it was not all that hard. And the travon saga goes on and on and on,and when that’s over there will be yet another.

Article on the book written by Wallace’s final guest, Mark Leibovich. Apparently he does to Politico and Politico readers what Politico does to non-”mainstreamers.”

For some reason, Jay Carney indicated bailouts would not be forthcoming. I'd guess, Obeyme must feel it would doom mid-term elections for Dems, so it'll have to wait.

The coming dominoes would certainly present a problem. I don't see an answer, other than a healthy haircut to existing pension plans.

The US Media are completely gone. They all have become part of the propaganda wing of this Administration.


So True. But for this site and some others we would never get the facts regarding what we are facing.

The TV reality show, star wannabe gawkers, only believe what their uniformed friends tell them, or what the MSM passes for “ real news”

Throw in Ellen, The View, etc... and no wonder we are in our current state of decline

Stop calling them socialists or progressives, they are communists. There is nothing progressive going back to 1925 Russia.

We play nice with our language and they call us Teabaggers.

We should all be mindful of another country and period of world history when the media was not "free" to tell facts as opposed to propaganda.

Hopefully you instantly recognize this very successful media king, but I would say he had nothing as successful as Obeyme has going today in 2013.

No need to be snarky. You raise valid questions.

With almost 50% of the population on G’ment welfare, the question I have - When will “most” of the working population roll over and stop producing?

Thanks for the thread AB. I’m watching The OPEN Championship so I won’t be watching the LSM talking heads. But I’ll be monitoring this thread to stay informed of any stupid comments by the liberals and RINOs.

Regarding people being fed up with their local Republican representatives.

The Madison Project has a list that rates their Republican reps. based on the “safety” of electoral results.

In my case Rep. John Culberson - a member of the powerful appropriation commitee

Like most members of the Texas delegation, Culberson evinces the image of a solid conservative, but his 2011 record, at least on fiscal issues, showed otherwise. As one of the 12 “Cardinal” members of the Appropriations Committee, Culberson voted against numerous opportunities to cut spending. He voted against the promised $100 billion in cuts in 2011, cutting spending levels to pre-Pelosi era, and eliminating farm and green energy subsidies. While he did vote for some spending cut amendments, he also voted for the Big 3 sins of 2011; the debt ceiling, omnibus, and minibus.

These votes were enough to earn him a -23 index for such a conservative district. It should be noted that he has amassed a pretty strong voting record so far in 2012. If he keeps it up, he may even improve to the hall of fame in 2012.

NO, I will NOT vote for this BIG G’MENT slave master
