As Bye-Bye Democrats tumble, Republicans fumble and the Tea Pot heats up....an Internet Gentleman tells us.....

INTERNET/////During the collapse in fall 2008 I was out to dinner with a gentleman from India. He gloated that America was over. I laughed, not a doubt in my mind that he was wrong. Then Bush and Obama did their thing and I feared my Indian friend was right. But now I have some hope again. It all depends on what we the people do now.

Joe the Plumber flushes Palin, McLAME:

gringoNOTE: In that article, the one and only reason Joe the (sic) Plumber gives for trashing Sarah Palin is that she is supporting John McCain, the man who got Joe his 15 minutes. Here is a response to Joe from the Internet.

INTERNET///////Get over yourself, Joe.

Sarah Palin would be a scumbag if she DIDN’T support McCain’s campaign – she would have NO platform if he hadn’t chosen her to run with him in 2008.

YOU would have no platform if Sarah and McCain hadn’t asked you to join them on the campaign trail.

Whether you like McCain’s policies or not, he is a public servant, and he didn’t use and abuse you as much as the media and the Democrats did. He didn’t ruin your life, and your dramatic hyperbole is pathetic.

You need to grow up politically. There are no ideologically pure political candidates. Every candidate has to represent thousands if not millions of people, and until the day that you get your own personal representative in Washington, it’s naive and short-sighted to trash everyone who doesn’t meet all of your ideals.

Oh, and your statement about Obama being an honest politician is absurd! He lies more than any politician I’ve encountered in my 49 years on this earth. (h/t scott detrow)

Investment guru Doug Casey, who's been to 150 countries and lived in about a dozen of them, is high on SE Asia (as am I), but he's highest of all on Argentina today, in or out of Buenos Aires. Casey sees The Argentine as earthy but European elegance, American flair, wide open spaces, reasonable prices, and the Government, despite some huge mistakes, is still not nearly as oppressive as bloated Big Washington is fast becoming. He believes that the USA used to be very good, "the Land of the Free " and all that, but the people obviously caved to the Government and Tax Man decades ago.

But Are the Dems Ready to say Bye-Bye to their biggest Wall Street Friend (See Bubba Clinton, see B. Obama)?

Argentina, eh..? I'd thought about Brazil but their crime problem makes ours look like a "dejeuner sur l'herbe".

I was thinking of escaping south, but only to Philly for now.. LOL

But I do speak reasonable spanish and I don't make demands so maybe worth checking out the business climate there.

On the other hand we have a HUGE disagreement re. Palin and what she owes McCain vs. what she owes the country.

They treated her like **** so there is more than loyalty and repaying a debt behind this.

Besides, there is also her WAFFLE of an interview with Univision.

I'm not saying I'd boycott her if she ran against the Bama but I am just more cool about supporting her until the election.

I am waiting for someone more steadfast and qualified. Shamnesty and open borders are anathema with me.

I still have to find out what her views are on islamofascism.

.

Ummahgummah

.

Oh and we should also make an issue out of rolling back any executive orders the Bama comes out with from this point forward.

We cannot accept this health care turkey shoved down our throats with the stroke of a pen.

Any ideas if he can open up the borders and give out passports simply by issuing an executive order?

Will the Repubics have the cojones to go to court if that happens?

I think the Bama will get increasingly hostile as the resistance among Americans grows.

Just wait till after the 2010 elections if you want to see a hostile Mama!

You should hear Gary Birdbrain on black radio here in NY. All the Bama's problems are due to "racism". NOT the fact that he's a MARXIST and a MOSLEM.

sorry I meant to write Bama not Mama LOL

ARE THE PORTUGUESE REALLY RUSSIANS?

Listening to the Gary Birdbrain show on WLIB radio was quite interesting not only for the unique interpretations given on this program for the various troubles certain black politicians find themselves in.

The Bama is in trouble due to "racism". Hmmm.. and how did he get elected in the first place?

In my opinion the way he got elected was more racist than anything else.

Hiram Montserrate's problems, yes the NY congressman who cut his wife with a glass, is a victim of "racism" as is the Governor of New York of course.

Not that I like Cuomo but the man has the right to challenge this guy in the Primaries!

The freakish talk show host Birdbrain invited call-ins to his show with the rather leading premise of whether black politicians are victims of a "double standard".

The only double standard I see is the one that these guys are benefitting from, most of all the Bama.

Now what does this have to do with the Portuguese you ask?

Well, this birdbrain host keeps referring to himself as "hotep" and several of his regulars used appropriated pre-islamic Egyptian names.

But there is more behind this than merely liking these particular names and thus assuming them. The host "hotep" and his callers seem to believe that they are descendants of Egypt.

Everyone knows that 99.9 % of African slaves brought to the Americas originated from West Africa.

africa is a fairly big continent so I thought.. hmm.. weird.. and I looked up the distance from Lagos, Nigeria to Alexandria, Egypt.

Result: 2500 miles.

Since I know geography fairly well I thought to myself that's about the same as Lisbon to Moscow!

And Eureka! A web search reveals: 2500 miles from Moscow to Lisbon.

Birdbrain logic at its best: The West Africans are Egyptians!

So The Portuguese are really Russians!

LOL

Leave it up to "hotep" to provide conspiracy theories and lessons in geography!

Ok, I found the Evan Bayh speech today kind of insulting. He basically said I'm quiting the Senate because I'm better than these guys and I have my nose out of joint and need to get away from these morons. First of all I agree most of the Senators are scum but for Bayh to come out and say I'm better than these guys after being part of them for years is hard to swallow. Did he just find out in the past year that there wasn't much bipartisanship in Congress? Did he not notice that the Democrats were declaring the Iraq War lost while our troops were still in the field fighting? Did he miss that? I find it hypocritical that a Senator retires after years in the Senate and blames everything on the other guys.

Dgscol

Steveok :

You are right. He has been largely silent for the last year. He could have broken the 60 seat standoff and forced dialog, could have taken his case to the press, and could have joined the Tea Party gang. No such thing.
He doesn't care, now that he has everything he actually cares about. He's goin fishin.


Ummahgummah

Looks like he is hedging. If he were to re-run and lose he can kiss running for President goodbye.

The way he is doing it he can use the argument against the Bama in the Doublecrat primaries.

Haha.. gonna be tough being a candidate-of-non-color® running against the incumbent-of-color!

Hitlery in the mix too.. should be entertaining.. let's just hope we don't have sharia law by the time.

The way he is going.. sharia law per executive order to prove ourselves to the moslem world.. he's absolutely capable of this bent logic.

"Sarah Palin would be a scumbag if she DIDN’T support McCain’s campaign – she would have NO platform if he hadn’t chosen her to run with him in 2008." ( -- from the Internet comment Gringoman posted)

----

Out of all fairness I grudgingly concede that point. Sarah may have to hold her nose and campaign for McCain. But let's not forget, McCain's politics are the antithesis of the Tea Party protesters.

As it stands now, Sarah Palin is_a_leader in the Tea Party movement. Sarah's main attraction is that ordinary people can relate to her. She symbolizes the middle-class' struggle against an out-of-touch elitist government. But IMHO Sarah crossed the line when she went down to Texas and campaigned for Perry instead of the alternative Debra Medina*. Debra Medina* IS THE TEA PARTY CANDIDATE, yet Sarah choose to turn her back on her and instead campaign for the establishment candidate. This calls into question Sarah's credibility. People are starting to wonder if she's truly a champion of the people, or if she's been co-opted by the GOP elites.

*Note: No way, no how is Debra Medina a "truther." She simply was caught off guard by Glenn Beck on his radio show. She made a misstep, that's all. She never said she believed what the "truthers" believe. All she was trying to do when Beck inquired about her opinion of "truthers", was that she is not going to act like the thought-police and thoroughly interrogate everyone on her staff. Bottom line: She is NOT a "truther", and she supports freedom of thought. She believes people have the freedom to form their own opinions, be they logical or absurd. I say good for her.

DJ,

From a strictly philosophical viewpoint, Debra Medina may be correct: You are free to believe that Bush-Cheney, not Islamic radicals, committed 9.11. You are also free to believe that the question is still unanswered, despite common sense, logic and the volumes of precise technical analysis disproving the "evidence" of the "Bush did it" entities, including the angry lesbian Rosie O'Donnell with her stupid yelling about the temperature at which steel can melt yada yada. I didn't hear Medina's interview with Beck, but the reports and a woman caller supporting Medina were not encouraging. And from your report, it sounds like she couldn't be bothered to find out whether any of her staffers think it possible that Bush and Cheney, not the Islamics, pulled off 9.11. Really? And she wants to run as an open, up front "common sense" American? This is a no-nonsense businesswoman?

In brief, Medina can tell us that even though she's not a "truther," and certainly not a blathering "Cheney did it" Troll X with his Jesus-for-Gay-Marriage sandwich board, she is nevertheless broad-minded.

But whether or not she's truly philosophical or truly broad-minded, she convinced observers of one thing: On an extremely sensitive issue, cutting right to the core of national trust and legitimacy, she was truly stupid. She starred in 'Amateur Hour.' She proved that if you can't afford consultants, you better be smart enough not to need them. On this issue, she obviously was deeply in need.

Maybe she's not really dumb. Maybe she now realizes her deadly political mistake (which any amateur could easily make.)Or maybe not.

DJ

Gringoman,

Debra Medina is NOT and NEVER HAS BEEN a "truther." Nor has she EVER KNOWINGLY aligned herself with anyone who does subscribe to that particular conspiracy theory!!! The fact is Glenn Beck sandbagged her in the interview in question.

I just did a quick search of Beck/Medina/interview and ran across the following video. It pretty much gets to the heart of the matter:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ODthBNfnPMg&feature=youtu.be&a

DJ

To disqualify Debra Medina for making a misstep right after she'd been sandbagged by a professional sandbagger is equivalent to disqualifying George Allen as a presidential candidate for uttering the word macaca. The only difference is George Allen was a victim of political-correctness coming from the Left, and Debra Medina is a victim of the "conservative" version of political-correctness.
