I heard davy & charlie were giving out free tickets and are screening it on a continuous loop in Tampa to keep the lemmings indoctrinated & intoxicated

I find this rather depressing

To lie with ever greater alacrity and find it somehow . . . profitable . . .

It's disconcerting

you'd think the repubs would have a better plan or a plan at all for the US

no, they only dream of obama

I think they do have a plan - I think it's fairly simple. I think they intend to turn the U.S. economy into something like that of Greece, bring it to utter ruin, institute austerity measures and then do away with all sorts of regulation so that unregulated capitalism permits monsanto et al to purchase all the farms, eliminate all the little ones that remain . . .. same with banking,

Grover Norquist is quite plain. He wants government of a size that will fit in a bathtub. I think the results are fairly predictable.

we have got to get the fascist repelicans out of office and see what remains.

that's not a plan

that's the elimination of plans

And somehow, to be a statist is a higher calling?

to be a satirist you mean.

We cannot privatize every legitimate function of government. Norquist would eliminate unemployment for crying out loud. That's insane. The only reason to privatize social security is to make those funds available to the gaming tables of Wall Street - and we already know what the result of that will be.

  • winner takes all

FDA, CDC, EPA, these are just some of the legitimate functions of government Norquist would eliminate. Who benefits? The drug companies, the coal and oil industry.

That's insane.

I thought it was a big deal then I read about where Fahrenheit 911 made 119 million in 2004, so that didn’t keep Bush in office, it took careful placement of voting machines to do that.

It is amazing how much demographic information is available to those tracking election results.

State by state, district by district - they have a very good idea how the voting will go.

I think there are only something like four states that are in question, that's four out of 50.
