The White House has acknowledged for the first time that
strict standards President Obama imposed last year to prevent civilian
deaths from U.S. drone strikes will not apply to U.S. military
operations in Syria and Iraq.
My longest post title ever. Teachout didn't spend $14 per vote, needless to say.
They were never worried about their Democratic Party primary
challengers earlier this month, Gov. Andrew M. Cuomo and his running
mate, Erie County’s Kathy Hochul, insisted over and over again.
aside, Cuomo and Hochul spent about $5.9 million in the final couple of
weeks and days immediately following their recent closer-than-expected
Democratic primary contests.
Can't bring myself to vote for King Andrew. Gonna have to be Green Party (who are loons) or a
The loons link is to the Green running in my district. It sucks that I can't link to Funiciello's interview with The Chronicle, a weekly in Glens Falls. Gonna put up a post with choice tidbits soon, though, and just transcribe.
The president shouldn’t be using a fateful and divisive word like
“impeachment” to raise money and rouse his base. He shouldn’t be at
campaign-type rallies where he speaks only to the base, he should be
speaking to the country. He shouldn’t be out there dropping his g’s,
slouching around a podium, complaining about his ill treatment,
describing his opponents with disdain: “Stop just hatin’ all the time.”
I had to include the impeachment part. That's so precious. Damn Obama for raisin' the possibility of his own impeachment!But, to move on to the strange bedfellow:
“First of all, we know it ain’t because of his blackness, so I say stop
trying to ‘relate.’ Be a leader. Be f**king presidential,” he said.
“Look, I grew up in a society where I could say ‘It ain’t’ or ‘What it
be’ to my friends. But when I’m out presenting myself to the world as
me, who graduated from college, who had family [that] cared about me,
who has a well-read background, I f**king conjugate.”
That's right. Motherfuckin' Motherfucking Samuel L. Jackson says just say no to dropping g's. Now, I'm going to pay attention. Better start fucking conjugating, too.
And BTW, Bush did it, too.
SATURDAY SPECIAL: Here's my latest literary effort to the local fish wrapper. That's a joke. I love the Post Star and most all newspapers in general. And I more than appreciate them running my rants. As one of the folks who helped put President Barack Obama into the
White House, I’d like to respond to Mr. Prossick’s recent letter. I might suggest the GOP run better candidates, as well. In 2012, the Republican candidate was a man who made his fortune putting people out of work. He was seen as so out of touch with the common man, he couldn’t beat Obama in spite of the economic downturn we were in at the time. In 2008, the candidate of the right was someone who, ironically, was not born in the United States. Panama. Check it out. Obama was born in Hawaii, unless we have to go through that whole birth certificate thing again. As I recall, John McCain’s judgment may have been called into question with his choice of a running mate. Anyone heard from her lately? Never mind. Some
might further doubt McCain’s judgment over his continual calls to use
military force. The short list is Iran, Syria, Russia, Nigeria and Iraq
(of course). He called for invading Hong Kong over Edward Snowden. Use the Internet. I’m certain you can find more. For those of you who favor that sort of foreign policy, I’d suggest a vote for Elise Stefanik. Her
website states she was director of communications for a think tank
called the Foreign Policy Initiative. It was founded by William Kristol,
Dan Senor and Robert Kagan. Apparently, their hard work shilling for
the invasion of Iraq in 2003 gave their previous group, PNAC, a bad
name. They still walk and quack like neo-conservatives, though. As
a bonus, she might give the Congress enough votes to go through with
impeachment of the president. Wouldn’t that be fun!

"What is objectionable, what is dangerous about extremists is not that they are extreme but that they are intolerant. The evil is not what they say about their cause, but what they say about their opponents." - Robert F. Kennedy
"'Conservative' is a magic word that applies to those who are in other conservatives' good graces. Until they aren't. At which point they are liberals.'" - Digby
While Democrats are constantly forced by manufactured controversies generated by the right-wing noise machine and their media allies to "repudiate" and "renounce" a never ending carousel of "extremists" ranging from the moderate to the irrelevant (Michael Moore, MoveOn, Louis Farrakhan, Ward Churchill, etc. etc.), the GOP establishment for years has tied itself at the hip to hate-mongering extremists along the lines of John Hagee, Rod Parsley, Pat Roberston, Ann Coulter, and all sorts of various Instapunks, with no repercussions or accountability whatsoever.- Glenn Greenwald - Tactics of the right-wing noise machine - Salon.com
