Back From The Dead?



It has just come to my attention that Harry Reid
a one time 31 point underdog has now pulled to within 8 points of
his Republican challenger. The reason. It seems as though a Tea Partier has entered
the fray and is sucking votes away from the Republican.

Personally I don't care if a Republican wins or a Tea Partier as long as Reid is out. If you listen real close you can almost hear Reid praying.





Dear God...
Please....Please.. don't let that
light skinned guy that doesn't speak with a Negro
dialect come to Nevada to campaign for me.

What Rhymes with CBO.. Try Fantasy





Ok it doesn't rhyme, but it is supposed to be the Gold Standard, the Seal of Approval if you will.


Boehner sitting there absorbing the "creative math"of the healthcare bill.


The look on his face

"priceless"



C.B.O.'s TRACK RECORD


2002 BUDGET DEFICIT:
ESTIMATED: $21 BILLION /// ACTUAL: $158 BILLION

JANUARY 2007 C.B.O. ECONOMIC FORCAST: GDP WILL GROW 2008 BY 3%, AND 2009 BY 2.9% BASED ON HOUSING MARKET IMPROVEMENTS AND GAS PRICES STABLE.... WE ALL KNOW HOW THAT TURNED OUT.

MEDICARE 1990
ESTIMATED: $12 BILLION /// ACTUAL: $167 BILLION

MEDICAID DSH PROGRAM 1992
ESTIMATED: $1 BILLION ACTUAL: $17 BILLION

MEDICARE HOME CARE 1993
ESTIMATED: $4 BILLION /// ACTUAL: $10 BILLION

BOSTON'S BIG DIG ROAD PROJECT
ESTIMATED: $2 BILLION /// ACTUAL: $15 BILLION + $8 BILLION MANDATED RAIL TRANSPORTAION SPENDING & still counting.

This healthcare scam (bill) has been a backdoor, double dealing, riddled with payoffs, botched hatchet job since its inception.

The CBO is supposed to be a independent, impartial, 3rd party separate from the politics of government. If you recall when Obamacare was first brought to the table the CBO did not agree with the cost analysis of healthcare predicting it would be much higher.

In an unprecedented under handed move so indicative of this administration the head of the CBO Douglas Elmendorf was invited to the White House and miraculously he had a change of heart. The CBO has been waffling back and forth ever since.

...Lets see now....Louisiana got this...Nebraska got that...The unions were taken care of...
I wonder what the CBO got...?

To All 535 voting members of the Legislature



To All 535 voting members of the Legislature; it is now official you are ALL corrupt morons:
  • The U.S. Post Service was established in 1775. You have had 234 years to get it right and it is broke.
  • Social Security was established in 1935. You have had 74 years to get it right and it is broke.
  • Fannie Mae was established in 1938. You have had 71 years to get it right and it is broke.
  • War on Poverty started in 1964. You have had 45 years to get it right; $1 trillion of our money is confiscated each year and transferred to "the poor" and they only want more.
  • Medicare and Medicaid were established in 1965. You have had 44 years to get it right and they are broke.
  • Freddie Mac was established in 1970. You have had 39 years to get it right and it is broke.
  • The Department of Energy was created in 1977 to lessen our dependence on foreign oil. It has ballooned to 16,000 employees with a budget of $24 billion a year and we import more oil than ever before. You had 32 years to get it right and it is an abysmal failure.
You have FAILED in every "government service" you have shoved down our throats while overspending our tax dollars
AND YOU WANT AMERICANS TO BELIEVE YOU CAN BE TRUSTED WITH A GOVERNMENT-RUN HEALTH CARE SYSTEM?


IT'S NOT ABOUT THE NEED FOR GOOD HEALTH CARE, IT'S ABOUT TRUSTING THE GOVERNMENT TO RUN IT.

The New Up and Down Vote





And so it came to past in the year of our Lord 2010. Where a top of Capitol Hill stood the Messiah. The heavens parted and the sun shone majestically on the anointed one. The multitudes gazed up in awe; hungry for the words of the Messiah.


"I come to you my brethren with all the problems I inherited to save you. Give me your sick and injured for I shall heal thee."

The anointed one waved a hand upon the multitudes. And spoke the words they longed to here.

"I give thee healthcare. I am him and I deem it so"

So it was said. So it was written.

An Absolute Disgrace






Recently we had the Moses twins Bush and Clinton parting the sea along with Hollywood in a mad rush to help the people of Haiti. A country that was a shit hole 20 years ago, a shit hole today, and will continue to be a shit hole 20 years from now.

We now live in a world where spending $15-to-$20 billion is considered pocket change. Yet we can't find the money to help 10,000 first responders to 911! They had to sue to cover their medical costs? I just saw a report on TV even if they win the $657M lawsuit the lawyers get $200M right off the top. Why should they have to fight to get the money from the Federal Emergency Management Agency when we freely gave Godzillions to Haiti? We have earmarks costing billions such as studying the sex drive of rats but we can't find the money to help our very own heros. Just what the hell kind of country are we living in?


Judge to hear plan to pay $657M to WTC responders

By DAVID B. CARUSO (AP) – 5 hours ago

NEW YORK — A settlement that could pay up to $657.5 million to more than 10,000 ground zero rescue and recovery workers sickened by dust from the destroyed World Trade Center goes before a judge Friday, and he has said he favored a settlement but planned to analyze it carefully to make sure it was fair.

Mayor Michael Bloomberg called the proposal "fair and reasonable," a sentiment echoed by one of the negotiators of the deal that was announced Thursday night after years of fighting in court.

The settlement agreed upon by lawyers representing the city, construction companies and the workers was announced by WTC Captive Insurance Co., a special entity established to indemnify the city and its contractors against potential legal action as they moved to clean up the site after the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks.

Both sides were scheduled to appear before the federal judge handling the litigation, U.S. District Judge Alvin Hellerstein, who must approve the deal along with the workers themselves. For the settlement to be enforced, 95 percent of the workers would need to agree to be bound by its terms.

The settlement would mean a postponement or cancellation of the trials tentatively scheduled to begin in May. Some of the cases scheduled to be heard first included that of a firefighter who died of throat cancer and another who needed a lung transplant, as well as workers with less serious ailments, including a Consolidated Edison utility company employee with limited exposure to the debris pile and no current serious illness.

The deal would make the city and other companies represented by the insurer liable for a minimum of $575 million, with more money available to the sick if certain conditions are met.

Most if not all of the money would come out of a $1 billion grant from the Federal Emergency Management Agency.

Marc Bern, a senior partner with the law firm Worby, Groner, Edelman & Napoli, Bern LLP, which negotiated the deal, said it was "a good settlement."

Workers who wish to participate in the settlement would need to prove they had been at the World Trade Center site or other facilities that handled debris. They also would have to turn over medical records and provide other information aimed at weeding out fraudulent or dubious claims.

Thousands of police officers, firefighters and construction workers who put in time at the 16-acre site in lower Manhattan had filed lawsuits against the city, claiming it sent them to ground zero without proper protective equipment.

Many now claim to have fallen ill. A majority complained of a respiratory problem similar to asthma, but the suits also sought damages for hundreds of other types of ailments, including cancer.

Lawyers for the city claimed it did its best to get respiratory equipment to everyone who needed it. They also had challenged some of the claims as based on the thinnest of medical evidence, noting that thousands of the people suing suffered from conditions common in the general population or from no illness at all.

Under the settlement, the task of deciding what each worker will be paid will fall to a neutral third party, to be picked by the two sides. Some workers are likely to receive payments of only a few thousand dollars. Others could be in line to get more than $1 million, depending on their injuries.

Carpenter James Nolan, of Yonkers, said he helped recover bodies and build ramps for firehoses at the site and then developed lung and leg problems, for which he takes six medications. He said the city knew the air was dirty so he sued six years ago and now he's happy the case is ending.

"We've had to fight for what we deserve," said Nolan, 45. "I'm glad it's coming to an end."

Eric Massa




Did you see this guy on Beck last night?


"Now they're saying I groped a male staffer. Yeah, I did. Not only did I grope him, I tickled him until he couldn't breathe, and then four guys jumped on top of me. It was my 50th birthday."



He resigned because:


Rahm Emanuel threatened him

he had cancer

he groped a staff member

he voted against health care

he was forced out by the Democrats

he's tired of the political wrangling

Take your pick.

However, when Robert Gibbs calls Massa's accusations "silly" and "ridiculous" you can bet your bottom dollar there is more to the story then meets the eye.


I think I am going to email this guy and find out what groping and a "tickle-fight" means.

Muslim Mothers



Two Middle East mothers are sitting in a cafe chatting over a plate of tabouli and a pint of goat's milk.

The older of the two pulls a bag out of her purse and starts flipping through photos. They start reminiscing.

''This is my oldest son, Mujibar. He would have been 24 years old now.''

''Yes, I remember him as a baby'' says the other mother cheerfully.

"He's a martyr now though" the mother confides.

"Oh, so sad dear'' says the other.

''And this is my second son, Khalid. He would have been 21.''

''Oh, I remember him,'' says the other happily, ''he had such curly hair when he was born.''

''He's a martyr too'' says the mother quietly.

''Oh, gracious me . . . '' says the other.

''And this is my third son. My baby. My beautiful Ahmed.. He would have been 18'', she whispers.

"Yes" says the friend enthusiastically, ''I remember when he first started school''

''He's a martyr also,'' says the mother, with tears in her eyes.

After a pause and a deep sigh, the second Muslim mother looks wistfully at the photographs and, searching for the right words, says . . .

"They blow up so fast, don't they?"
