Comments

joanie

Thanks for posting this. I've heard about it but not taken the time to find it. I wish I could podcast O'Donnell.

Everything comes with an ad. so attach two or three ads and let me podcast it please. Of course, we got two ads with this one. Trump sure knows marketing.

Randi had a wonderful guest who writes for The Onion and is a gifted writer. He said it very articulately: FEAR.

Chucks

Well Larry, did you really think you could slam the folks you work for and a guy that gets 5 times the viewers and an even larger amount of ad dollars than you for your company and win?
You are such an insignificant player in the business anyway.
The only thing that I would enjoy more than you being bitch slapped would be to see The Donald walk in to your office and tell you to pack up your stuff Larry, YOU ARE FIRED!
Oh well, reality is that your numbers are so bad, you have a home at MSNBC.

Tommy008

on John Gibson he was playing clips of all the stuffed shirt, poker up their asses big name Repug conservatives attacking Trump BIGTIME, and Gibson did as well. This Trump manages to piss off these asses and the Joanus too ALL AT THE SAME TIME. The guy is fantastic. The latest Rasmussen poll show him sitting atop all the Repub prez candidates. You go, Don!

Coiler

Fred Thompson was sitting at the top of the geezer and has-been list too in 2008. Wha Hauppened?

joanie

One liberal and two amygdalas. Hahahaha. Fear of bosses and fear of blacks. What more can you say?

KS

O'Donnell is both honest with his feelings and a bold faced liar at the same time - "Jesus is a socialist - according to the bible - what a duplicitous dufus ! how can anyone take him or any of the other clowns masquerading as talk show hosts over at MSNBC seriously ? Nothing personal, Joanie and Sparkles et.al - but if you want to take it that way, fine with me.

As for Trump, the odds are he won't run, but he can shake up the maggot infested MSM and the low information Americans as well as anyone out there now. Trump is a populist, not a conservative. He can piss a number of people off, but not the degree of the current and last president - both of whom are incompetent. This is shaping up to be a surrealistic campaign and is going to be a big f'in deal...

joanie

A populist with the idiocracy. That's a good one KS.

Coiler

And The Donald referring to them as "the blacks"

joanie

Watching Frontline which is investigating outsourcing airplane maintenance to save money. Gee, I hope chux doesn't fly much. He might be sorry one of these days. That's what the love of money will get you.

Tommy008

no- a populist that can get enough votes to go up against the idiocracy that plans to vote for Barry, and beat them.

EvergreenRailfan

Looked like Chris Hayes filling in tonight. When Olbermann was fist suspended last year, they allegedly called Chris Hayes first to fill in, he refused. Although I was thinking that it was because of the comments last night.

Tommy008

he might need a sick today to ercover from his tirade against Orly Taitz last night. total one-sided screamfest that went on for minutes. or NBC gave him a time-out day liek a small child.

joanie

The NDP in Canada is threatening the Harper Regime. I love it. Watching The National on CBC. Can you imagine Canada throwing over the Bush-clone Harper for Layton? Only in my dreams. Of course, the conservatives follow that well-worn path to personal attacks: a ramshackle party that won't last.

I think human beings everywhere are ready for change.


BTW, wonder what those southern states are thinking about social safety nets and "gumment" money these days? The Big Guy is reminding them to mind their manners big time.

EvergreenRailfan

joanie, I have been following that race on CBC and Global National(a private-sector Canadian Broadcaster), and the NDP has touched a nerve in Quebec. The separatist Bloc is now lashing out at them too! To think the NDP has only one seat in Quebec right now. The opposition parties managed to force this election on a contempt motion, the first ever in Canada, let alone the Commonwealth.

As for the South, I am sure they will probably take the money, assuming it is there, wasn't Disaster Relief cut in one of the Continuing Resolutions? In Missouri, Lambert Field took a big hit on Friday, but was operational again by Monday. Loved the way MetroSt.Louis handled the situation. When Lambert Field was closed, they annulled service on the Metrolink Red line to it's two Lambert FIeld Stations, but when it re-opened, the stations did too.

EvergreenRailfan

SOme of the flooding in Missouri caused by the recent storm damage is affecting communities near the town of Cape Girardeau. Rush's hometown.

http://www.kplr11.com/news/ktvi-flooding-riverfront-fema-damage,0,1347950.story

joanie

I don't know as much as you do about the politics of Canada but tried to follow the attempts by the conservatives to defeat that motion. Harper was not honest.

Obama will find help for those states. He's in campaign mode.

Railfan, how do you keep up with everything?

EvergreenRailfan

Podcasts, and some news feeds. Sometimes I listen for a few minutes, if nothing good, I skip to the next ones. The info about the St. Louis Metrolink I mentioned, it was from a railfan board. The moderator does searches almost daily and posts a few articles. One of them was the service alert. The moderator was from the NJ-area. Reminds me, got to go check that board.

KS

nd The Donald referring to them as "the blacks"

Posted by: Coiler | April 28, 2011 at 09:37 PM

Since when is "Blacks" racist ? only the idiocracy would parrot assininity like that. There should an intelligence test for all voters - if that were the case, the leftist progressives would squeal about disenfranchisement and start running with that mantra again...

EvergreenRailfan

ESPN's 30 for 30 Documentary Film series did a good one called "Who Killed the USFL", and although it did not entirely point fingers, it did kind of suggest Donald Trump helped. He was the owner of the New York Generals, and was instrumental in the shift to the fall, which led to the court battle. Trump's response in that one was he made the USFL. Although Generals QB Doug Flutie said they should have stayed in the Spring.(Flutie, who went onto a long carreer int he Canadian Football League, and then with the NFL, retiring with New England, and his last play was the first Drop Kick in decades).

Also, Joanie, something about the disaster aid got me thinking. I remember that Keith Olbermann often would get donations moving at times. The case of power outage on a South Daota Native American Reservation, and the effects after, he awarded the Bureau of Indian Affairs the Worst Person honors, and then got responses from viewers that were asking, where do they donate.

Tommy008

Trump is not a racist. People liek the Joanus go around with their noses p in the air, sneering at a turn of phrase liek 'the blacks" and making a big deal abiu tot, when it means nothing. Trump , just lik myself, and Chucks , KS and other nonlibs has had more black friends and just general interstion with blacks over the years than any of these prissy, pious little Seattle libtards liek the Joanus, Coiler and Sparky who think their shit doesn't stick in regards to their racial tolerance.

Tommy008

that fat Repug jackass who doess the polling groups on Foxnews, Frank Luntz, he asks the people sitting in rows of chairs in the room various questions, just claimed in great anger that he knows Trump won't run ("doesn't have the guts to run" were big boy's exact words) and challenged Trump to a ten grand wager that he won't run. Man i've never seen anyone infuriate these Repug conservatives as much as Trump is.

Nyak

HAHAHAH the " I have friends who are black" argument. Everytime you open your mouth, Tommy, you reinforce what we all know about your dried up little heart and mind.

Tommy008

"Nyak"?......a board skulker, whose presence has been unknown, fuming with rage in the shadows, jumps out of the bushes. spewing vitriol at me, for his brief moment in the spotlight, then shrinks back into the wings, to brood and curse......bwahahahahaahhh

Tommy008

yeah the old "i have black friends" thing, except that it's true. People like Joanus and Sparky love blacks and minorites as an abstract concept to lecture and pontificate self-righteously about on Blatherwatch and at their dinner parties, but they never have them over to their homes, or their table at Starbucks....bbhaahahahahahaaaaah

Tommy008

Foxnews Fatass Luntz is going to find himself about 10 thousand dollars short for his yearly Hoho , Haagen Das and Dingdong budget, in a few weeks, when Trunp announces. Pay up, putz.

Sarah

Referring to blacks and minorities as "them", and labeling me as "a little slave girl"' now who sounds more racist.

Sarah

Notice how quiet the Thomas gets when I likely expose his true colors.

Jovita cant be friends with Tom

You are an embarrassment Tom. I apologize to this blog for your bigoted small mind.

Tommy008

BREAKING-MONSON ANNOUNCES SIGNING OG THREE YEAR KIROFM CONTRACT= Tommy008

Any one know what a og three year kirofm contract is. And why does it equal the Thomas. Hahaha

Posted by: joanie | April 28, 2011 at 10:37 PM

An unbelievably insensitive post, Joanie.

Tommy008

Trump broke out the f word today in his Las Vega speech and the crowd went wild. Expect more. Meanwhile Ron of Ron and Dom joins fellow clueless coworkers Dori and Burbank in erroneously claiming Trump won't run.

Andrew

I'm dissapointed in KIRO for committing to a path of slow demise. We can only hope the next three years don't damage the station, and the region too badly. Perhaps Monson will manage to avoid insulting minority communities, scaring our best and brightest away from serving the public, and generaly eroding the sense of community in the Seattle area that has been lacking for far too long, due in no small part to the lack of good will and community building on our public airwaves.

Kudos to Dave Ross for saving the fireworks and Ron and Don for their fund raising activities. It's nice to know that some broadcasters still take commitment to the public seriously and don't squander the platform on hatred and childish whimsy.

KS

Don't think the independents really want Trump to run against BO. He makes the microphone into a megaphone but he is a businessman - both liberal and conservative and a progressive in some ways. For instance, he favors universal health care & the death panels - as currently exist in the UK - yeah he really said it.

Sarah you a projecting your racism well upon others. Keep it up just like your mentor (sic) Joanie does.

Coiler

Trump also favors the death penalty when it suits him

In 1989 Donald Trump took out a full page ad in four New York City newspapers calling for the execution of the alleged rapists in the infamous Central Park Jogger case. Never mind that the five alleged assailants were all minors, or that rape wasn’t a capital crime. There was a moral panic to be stoked.

And stoked it was. New York’s media parted with their tradition of not publishing the names of minors accused of crimes. The case gave us the term “wilding”, described at the time as the name violent youth gangs gave their sprees of crime and terror, but which was most likely the result of an NYPD detective who misunderstood the lyrics to a Tone Lōc song. The case made national headlines, and fueled the growing myth of the super-predator, in which the law-and-order crowd terrified white suburbia with tales of a rising class of young, black uber-criminals. The explosion in violent juvenile crime predicted by the likes of William Bennett and John DiIulio, Jr. never happened.

If Trump had his way, all of the Central Park Five would have been dead by 2002. That’s the year Matias Reyes, already in prison for rape and murder, confessed to the crime, and insisted he acted alone. DNA tests had already confirmed that only one person raped victim Trisha Meili. Further testing showed Reyes was that person. Manhattan District Attorney Robert Morganthou later vacated the convictions of the other five suspects, all of whom had already served their sentences for the attack.

Now, one of the wrongly convicted, Raymond Santana, wants Trump the presidential candidate to apologize. From NY1:

Santana was 14 years old at the time. He says Trump’s call for the “death penalty” helped fuel the media firestorm before the suspects even went to trial.

“It says a lot about his character. If he can give the death penalty to 14-year-old, 15-year-old kids then there’s nothing he would not do. Those are characteristics of a tyrant, not characteristics of a president,” Santana said.

Santana served seven years in prison in connection with the rape and beating of Trisha Meili.

All five of the accused have sued the city. That lawsuit is still pending.

Trump is nothing more than a carnival barker. Not a liberal or independent.

joanie

No, not "unbelievable" - apparently you have nothing more profound to offer? No more significant statistics to dismiss or massive assumptions to make?

Your blade is dull today.


KS, talk to the Queen. She's looking for some conversation and you're on the same page these days.

Now that I've played matchmaker, I'm off to the beach! Andrew, you play with KS, Queen, and Tommy. Their parts are interchangeable. Well, except for Tommy. He might jam up the works . . . make sure the parts are still working before you include him. I have my doubts.

KS

Trump is nothing more than a carnival barker. Not a liberal or independent.

Posted by: Coiler | April 29, 2011 at 07:19 PM

You stole a line from the community agitator in chief - its a lame and feckless response. Wrong on both counts - He is a liberal an independent and also a conservative. Trump scares the bejeezus out of leftist lemmings because he will change things a sabotage the one world order that you naively relish - not just give platitudes and keep creating strawmen like Mr. Obama is so adept at.

Time to grow up Coils - face reality and realize this country is going down the toilet with the rest of the excrement. It may well take a mover and shaker like Trump to restore the greatness of this country - which is now a shadow of its former self.

joanie

Sorry. I wasn't fair to the Queen. She's never said anything profound so I should have expected it. But, something less tired perhaps? Just sayin'...


KS, see if you can list some tactics Trump might use to bring back the greatness of America. BTW, what was the "greatness" of America? Can you tell us?

joanie

Damn. . . "shouldn't have expected it."

Coiler

"Community" means Urban to you KS. Just come out and say you and BratBart hate African Americans organizing the way the Pullman Co. hated A.Phillip Randolph organizing the porters.

KS

How about bringing back our manufacturing industry that has lost 6 million jobs over the years, repealing NAFTA, stop capitulating to China - something both parties have failed miserably at. The greatness in America is something you dislike Joanie - because it espouses conservative values, spending within our means, respect by other countries and absent of fraudulent political correctness that the leftists have infiltrated and polluted the culture with. Stop living in the 60's or are you on a perpetual acid trip that has polluted your mind for good ?

Profound -alright in what way ? Back up your assertions with some facts for a change.

Coiler - why are you post so stupidly ? You keep projecting your racism with posts like that above. That play in the progressive playbook has been snuffed out. Give it up - you come across like a silly lemming.

Coiler

You and the Donald are the racists.

Despite Donald Trump’s claim this week that he avoided serving in the Vietnam War solely due to a high draft number, Selective Service records show that the purported presidential aspirant actually received a series of student deferments while in college and then topped those off with a medical deferment after graduation that helped spare him from fighting for his country, The Smoking Gun has learned.

KS

Playing the race card is the last refuge of a scoundrel. It is clear that you have run out of arguments. Your stupidity is amazing...

Trump was truthful about avoiding serving in Vietnam. The rest is irrelevant from the maggots in the media where you dug up this article. Why does Trump scare you so much ?

Tommy008

Joanus has now surely crossed the line of human decency, if she hasn't already in the past, with her shameful and reprehensible attempt to make a 'funny" over the death, destruction and sufferng in the southern states.

KS

Not the first time and unfortunately it won't be the last for the shameless hag.

Coiler

"Coiler - why are you post so stupidly"

I thought you went to the UW?

EvergreenRailfan

Coiler, thanks for mentioning A. Phillip Randolph and the Brotherhood of Sleeping Car Porters. I think that union is still around, folded first into the Airline Clerks Union, and now the current Amtrak Employees Union. The merger with the Airline Clerks Union happened around 1975, Pullman went broke in 1968. I saw the bust of Randolph in Union Station in D.C.

Also, wasn't it the same D.A. still in charge when they had to announce that they had the wrong people in the Central Park Jogger case? Plus, the Death Penalty is beginning to be abolished again in several states, New York briefly had it, Illinois just abolished it, and both sides were lobbying Governor Quinn, including Lt. Governor Simon(Paul Simon's daughter, and her father once occupied the same seat) on the pro-abolition side, and pro law and order groups(like prosecutors) were trying to get him to veto the bill.

EvergreenRailfan

Tom Hartmann had Orly Taitz on the other night for an interview. I don't think it got as bad as O'Donnel did.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_oevqk0oJb4

Coiler

I think the last Pullman conductor was hired in the late 60's,they had a separate crew conductor than the operating railroad conductor. Then REA was gone by 1975.

Tommy008

Curley is on the air right now whining about how he only sees his kids "twenty minutes a day".....what a load of crap ....we're supposed to feel sorry for this putz?.....Curley is a "poor life choices" guy, juat liek Dori...i'm suer he yells out an attaboy! to the radio speaker whenever he hears Dori lecturing people about poor life choices.....so allow me to say..you made poor life choices John...maybe you should have invested some of that Evening Magazine money into someting with higher returns, if you invested it at all...boohoo John boohooo....frankly i'm relieved that Curley didn't get the Doti job...
