right-wing blogs we like

  • The Reagan Wing
    Hearin lies the real heart of Washington State Republicans. Doug Parris runs this red-meat social conservative group site which bars no holds when it comes to saying who they are and who they're not; what they believe and what they don't; who their friends are and where the rest of the Republicans can go. Well-written, and flaming.

Wow..I hope Tommy reads this. If he ever gets involved with something like this, he will never be able to afford a bigger pool.

KS

What say you about this, Hedge Fund Hal ?

Mentor

Thanks for making us aware of this.

T-S

I wonder if Curley and Gaub are from the South

People have been scammed forever. It's become the national pastime since the eighties.

Curley's Hall of Shame./Hedge Fund Hal

Forx trading is a bunch of horsecrap, at least this hting they ar pitching to smalltime investors. 8 million a month? bwahaahahahahaa if Curley had ank kind of perceptive powers all he needed to do was peer into the dudes eyes and know he wasn't smart and cunning enough to ever mke that kind of moolah. Thats the incpme of a billionaire , not a millionaire. Another black room in Curley's Hall of Shame.

KS

Are you sure you weren't Tommy008 ? Another name change - following in the footsteps of T-S (?)

Cueburner

The fact that this investigation, involving a number of agencies and many more investigators, has kept the lid on leaks is remarkable. Reminds me of what an old time prosecutor once said, leaks are made for a purpose, such as smoking somebody out, and if an investigation is quiet, it usually means they've got the goods on the perps and are just building an iron clad case without scaring them off.
For T.S, it looks like the Gaub's hail from Kentucky.

Cueburner

Here is a link to the Curley interview with Gaub...

Posted by: KS | July 14, 2012 at 05:06 PM

yikes, those footsteps have tromped through so much doggy doo you wouldn't want to be part of that trail of tears. what's it, like 5 names at this point?

T-S

Aha! Thought so... Thanks Cueburner. Now we'll have to check out Curley.

Kentucky - isn't that McConnell territory? And sprinkle arsenic in horsefeed country? He looks like he would do that. What a wonderful place to be from.

Coiler

Pap was talking about the south and reconstruction after the 'waor of northern aggression" today on Ring of Fire and said the north shouldn't have helped the south. I agree.

Puget Sound Blathers

folks from the south make up an oversized number of people

Puget Sound Blathers

folks from the south make up an oversized number of people who serve in our military.
without the south, america would be a lesser place.

this knee jerk response slamming the south is getting tiresome.

Walt

I don't listen to Curley. Did he ever acknowledge any of this?

T-S

As usual, PS can't connect the dots. They are in the military because it is the only way they can earn a living. Dolt. Nothing like southern poverty.

T-S

Let me 'splain that to you, PS:

Northern kids are in school or in jobs. Although when the southern politicians get done with us, nobody will be working. And those that are will be working at minimum wage.

Lovely.

KS

Your generalizations are overly simplistic as usual, T-S and off-base, unless the south includes South Chicago.

Your disdain for the south shows and you are being south-ist.

Ugly.


Coiler

Papintonio was talking about this, a bunch of southern dullards keeping the rest of the nation down, they started the war between the states btw.

Walt

PS do you have family in the South? Her description is no worse than what "some" on here say about Obama and progressives. Why the distinction?

Walt

And why aren't you or KS commenting on Curley, or the con-man?

KS

I don't listen to Curley. The con man seemed like a con man and Curley wasn't very perceptive.

Comparing the south vs. progressives is like apples and oranges. A low percentage of southerners are progressives. and those would be the ones T-S would give a pass to. That being said, T-S is a southist and conservata-phobic.

T-S

You don't know who I'd give a pass to. That's your problem, KS, little intelligent posting and lots of unsupported opinion. Read the link to find out what we're talking about before you go off the deep end.

If you can relevantly connect to it, congratulatioins.

Puget Sound Blathers for Walt

Walt, acutally i don't have family in the south. but i have spent time in the military (8 years) and spent some of it in Alabama, Georgia, at various military forts, etc.
moreover, within the military family you have a large share who come from the south.
lots and lots of great people there. this writing off an entire region by T-S only displays her ignorance.
same with her view of the employment situation out there. and a very high quality of family life.

Puget Sound Blathers for Walt

Walt,
i read the the thread and am waiting for more information as the BW Crew promises.
Taking this away from John Curley, I would like to asks any radio Host in general if they ever had a guest on and realized either during the show or afterwards , 'hey this lady is full of it.' And as a follow up then ask if so, exactly what did they do about it. Do they feel any obligation to their listeners to set the record straight.


KS

If you can relevantly connect to it, congratulatioins.

Posted by: T-S | July 14, 2012 at 11:23 PM

You are spinning like a top, T-S. If you are able to support what you say about how you are not anti-south, I can always retract and correct what I said. Don't think people can't see into each others' souls on this here website. Fair enough ?

Had to post this, don't know the author.

"Good morning, Bain Capital."
"Hi, may I speak to the owner?"
"That would be Mr. Romney."
"OK, can you connect me?"
"He doesn't maintain an office here."
"Well, OK, how about the president?"
"That would be Mr. Romney."
"Ok, can you connect me?"
"I'm sorry, he no longer works here."
"Um...OK, who's your Chief Executive Officer?"
"Mr. Romney."
"Fine, I'll talk to him."
"I'm sorry, he's left the company."
"Errr....Chairman of the Board?"
"Mr. Romney."
"I don't suppose..."
"Nope, gone."
"Well, just who runs your company?"
"We have a management committee."
"Ah, good, now we're getting somewhere."
"Mr. Romney is in charge of that."
"OK, put me through!"
"I'm sorry, Mr. Romney no longer works here."
"Lady, I just want to talk to SOMEONE about a hostile takeover idea I have..."
"Putting you through to Mr. Romney now!"”

T-S

Yep!

Chucks

It does sound as if Dan Gaub was in charge of Social Security for this nation. The only difference that I can see is that the fools that invested in his Ponzi scheme did it voluntarily. The fools that send their money to the Social Security Ponzi scheme are forced to participate by the US government.

Elitist Liberal

Or they can just sit on their asses collecting unemployment.

KS

Why did Prez BO claim executive privilege for Fast and Furious if he had nothing to hide ? Do you think Bush had something to hide when he claimed Exec privilege ?

(I can predict that I will not get a direct answers to these two questions above, even though Prez BO's actions beg the question, as do many of his other actions)


Isabelle O'Shanassy

As for ponzi schemes, they have evolved to be in sophistication wherein constantly yielded by trust factors and vectors that probe them to be as legitimate. Names like Madoff and how he fooled a lot.

Now it's Top 40 hits from the '60's & '70's aimed at that diminishing crowd who still remembers them and can still hear.
    • KTTH am 770 KHz
      Right wing home of local, and a whole bunch of syndicated righties such as Glennn Beck, Rush Limbaugh, Michael Medved, Sean Hannity, Laura Ingraham, Lars Larsony, and for an hour a day: live & local David Boze.
    • KPTK am 1090 KHz
      Syndicated liberal talk. Stephanie Miller, Thom Hartmann, Ed Schultz, Randi Rhodes, Norman Goldman fill in the large hole to the left on Northwest radio dial.
    • KLFE AM 1590 kHz
      Syndicated right-wing 2nd stringers like Mark Levin, Bill Bennett, Mike Gallagher, Dennis Prager, Dennis Miller and Hugh Hewitt inhabit this timid-voiced neighbor honker for your radio enjoyment (unless you're behind something large like Costco).

      News, traffic, Ken Schram and John Carlson.
    • Washington State Radio Stations
      Comprehensive list of every danged AM & FM station on the dial.
