    "...true Zionism involved emigration to Palestine, working with out own hands to 'redeem' and build up the country, and create there a model society based on social, economic and political equality...." "David Ben-Gurion Looks Back"-In talks with Moshe Pearlman published 1965 "For united we stand, divided we fall" As sung by "The Brotherhood of Man" (1970) Jeremy Corbyn, the socialist style Labor Party leader in the UK reminds me of what "Labor" and "Socialist" parties used to stand for. The people who work for a living were deserving of protection from big business and more communal way of living was...
  • The Perot-Myth and the Bush Family

    Since 1992, Republicans have been smarting their loss by claiming that Ross Perot stole enough votes to elect Bill Clinton. Even as much as the loyal opposition seeks to demystify the winner's victory, the Perot-elected-Clinton lie has only served to force the GOP to adopt pro-immigrant pro-big-gov narratives. Perot was more liberal than Slick Willie himself. http://www.ontheissues.org/Ross_Perot.htm He was pro-abortion, pro-homo, and for tax hikes on fossil fuel, the driver of American jobs. Bush I's job approvals in 1992 were as low than Jimmy Carter's in 1980 http://spectator.org/63682_bushioisie-wrong-ross-perot-didnt-cost-ghw-bush-white-house-1992/ http://www.gallup.com/poll/116677/presidential-approval-ratings-gallup-historical-statistics-trends.aspx Of course Bush was 1000x better than Surrender Monkey Dhimmi, but...
  • What is wrong with President Obama?

    What is wrong with Resident Obama? He goes to Europe and makes some of the most incredibly out of touch statements. He has appeared at press conferences with one eye half open and one eye shut. When I Google "President Obama One Eye Open One Eye Shut" I get only 3 hits, some from the religious prophesy perspective. Evidently, Google has cleansed this query to be more favorable to the President.
  • Why There WILL Be a Contested Convention.

    Donald Trump will not reach 1237 delegates before the GOP July Cleveland Convention and there will be a floor fight for the Nomination. For the purposes of this analysis, both Sen. Ted Cruz and Donald Trump are peripheral characters. Both will continue to pursue their best strategy to the nomination, Trump on first ballot, Cruz on 2nd or 3rd (most likely 4th after Florida delegates are released). There will be a contested convention because the media will push for it. 1. Blood in the streets in Cleveland? Damn, that's a generational story. Somebody's gonna win a Pulitzer here. 2. Permanent...

Those state lists don't cross. Same goes for the duplicate Topics found in Chat and Blogger forums -- and those lists are all separate from one another.

    wiki ^ | 3/4/2016 | Total Vanity
    The Stainless Steel Rat is James Bolivar DiGriz, who goes by many aliases, including "Slippery Jim" and "The Stainless Steel Rat". He is a futuristic con man, thief, and all-round rascal. He is charming and quick-witted. He is also a master of disguise and martial arts, an accomplished bank robber, a criminal mastermind, an expert on breaking and entering, and (perhaps most usefully) a skilled liar. Master of self-rationalization, the Rat frequently justifies his crimes by arguing that he is providing society with entertainment; and besides which, he only steals from institutions that have insurance coverage. He displays a strong...

    The Cruz/Trump wars are killing both candidates and moving Rubio up to prime Romney position. Here's the poll from PPP to be released tomorrow: Trump 25 Cruz 21 Rubio 21 Carson 11 Jebra 5 Kasich 5 Rand 5 Christie 3 Fiorina 3 Gilmore 1 Santorum 0 Rubio is calling on the party to 'consolidate' (guys behind me drop out and endorse me). The MSM is laughing about the Trump vs. Cruz war and encouraging it -- Karl Rove on Fox tonight telling Trump he was right; Trump did steal Iowa; go sue over it and keep imploding pursuing it.

  • Larry Kudlow is LOSING IT over Cruz's 'New York Values' remarks. NYorkers more vain than Texans?

    I'm listening to Kudlow's Money Talk on the radio. Larry, the host is furious at Ted Cruz for making his remarks. This has become almost a Rorschach Test where everyone gives their own interpretation on exactly what Ted was saying. I know what he was referring to, the New York that would elect Bill de Blasio, had elected Bloomberg, and Hillary to office long before that. These people were elected in spite of their hard left leanings. Ted was speaking of people like Governor Andrew Cuomo, who said "Pro Gun Supporters have no place in the state of New York....
  • Trump Personal Business Distractions

    09/20/2015 11:44:57 AM PDT · by NGC 6822 · 94 replies
    For weeks I have been wondering why no media reporter, GOP candidate, debate moderator, network political analyst or individual citizen has asked Mr. Trump a very simple and basic question. “Mr. Trump, if you are elected president, who will manage your businesses?” I do not think this is a trivial question. The job of president demands 100% mental dedication and cannot tolerate conflicts with personal business interests. Owning an on-going business is not the same as putting a stock portfolio in a blind trust. To be sure Mr. Trump does have many managers to run day-to-day operations. But, I see...
  • Did I hear Rush Right? Don't let Trump's views bother us 'Cause RNC said Bush, McCain, Romney OK

    Did I hear Rush say that we should be willing to vote for Trump even with all of his baggage and left leaning positions and support for Democrats!? He said the RNC told us to support McCain and Romney (and I think he threw Bush in there) so we should have no trouble supporting Trump. That's some kind of rallying cry for conservatives. So would someone please tell me what Trump stands for (other than saying he'll build the fence and deport gang members), and why (other than you want to believe that he has changed) why anyone would trust...

  • Shouldn't California be collapsing right about now?

    I am not an economist, but with all that is going on over there: high taxes, decrease in revenues, businesses leaving, low-skilled and poorly educated illegal immigrants sucking up the social services, etc...shouldn't we be seeing signs of collapse? I would have thought that something would have happened by now. I keep hearing all this talk about economic collapse not just for certain states, but for the entire country. Is that really going to happen with chaos reigning, or will it more likely be just be just a condition where everything is stagnant?

    Reference: Herman Cain's comments re: the offensive, racial slur on the big rock at the Hunting Camp visited by the Perry family for decades. Now that the bruhaha over Herman Cain's comments (Perry showed insensitivity) have subsided somewhat, I'd like to make this observation: Many have accused Cain of "playing the race card". Well, granted, he jumped the gun and failed to avoid the "trap" set for him by the liberal media. He needs to apologize and move on. However..... IMO, Rick Perry played the race card big-time when, in the last Debate, he accused those of us who oppose...

    As the current republican primary process unfolds, I find one parallel to be very interesting. The liberal media has smeared all candidates except one, Mitt Romney. They've gone out and manufactured fake out of context videos about "big black clouds", they've said things where blatantly false when they were blatantly true, and yet one candidate stands alone as unsmeared. He's not getting great press, don't misunderstand. But he's not the subject of the media war that we've come to all be familiar with. Why? The media absolutely love and adore Barack Obama, so it's not for lack of zeal. AND!...
