Duffman

See folks Bla'M is losing it, probably from over-work on this blog. Get those cards & letters with those $donations in as soon as possible.
I believe today is 09/15/2008. [smile]

Coiler

I'll send in money if Duffman is banned.

Duffman

I'll ban myself if you send in $100 and Bla'M confirms it. How 'bout that?

chucks

You let Coiler off way too cheap Duffy.
She needs to come up with some serious money. One hundred bucks is not a drop in the bucket from Coiler's vast financial resources. It is certainly not enough to justify our losing your input and wisdom on this fine blog.
Come on C, a huge cash investment in Bla'Ms free speach 'cause free speach does not come without costs.

Coiler

I don't trust duffman on his word. So, I'll send in $50 for the first half and the other 50 after I've proven him to be a liar.

Duffman

Here's the challenge re-coil (after you've spouted off so quickly). As soon as Bla'M confirms receiving at least $100 from you (and by all means give more if you can)...I'll be history. Simple and straightforward as that. And, that is a promise!
So let's all see if you'll put your $money where your smartass mouth is. I'm betting you won't.

chucks

What I said must have been important. Why else would it be posted twice?

Duffman

Tzipi Livni is to Isreal, what Sarah could be to the USA. We (they) just need the 'gumption' to elect both. This is a milestone time in history, make no doubt about it. Let's not let Rome burn (in either scenarios).

sparky

Hey! Listen up all you American Whiners! Lindsey Graham's The-Recession-is-All-In-Your-Head Cases! Just because the stockmarket lost FIVE HUNDRED points today, Herbert Hoover...er..John McCain wants you to know that the economy is moving right along and if you think its a bad thing, well you just hate America's workers! So go back to talking about important stuff like lipstick and bridges!

Duffman

Yes indeed the Washington State Pension Plan lost big time today as their investiments are basically in the index of American stocks, et al.

sparky

that should read Phil Graham, not Lindsey. Same assholiness.

joanie

The best news of the day? Paulson isn't bailing out Shearson Lehman. I love it. Even he's had enough.

Reagan's politics coming home to roost - finally.

Joseph Stiglitz on Ron Reagan's show today - "historic day" - Greenspan - "historic day"

God, what you rethugs have done to our country and economy. The only good thing about it is that you're all going to suffer as well.

I hope big time!

joanie

And you pea brains are talking about is who's going to pay most - least - when for a blog that's hardly worth reading anymore.

You're all freeloaders anyway.

joanie

Oh wait! The expert on economy, "dollar-signs-in-her-eyes Palin" will get us out of this right?

Just like she did her teeny weeny little town of Wasilla which had a surplus until she came along...

OH, she's a repuglican all right.

KS

I'm surprised you didn't call her town Wasilly like Obambam did. Vice Presidents usually don't do diddley squat for the economy. What did Al Gore do for the economy when Clinton was President ? Nada. Cheney did little of anything about the economy. The media and you are being ambulance chasers to pave the way for the ballyhooed regime of Hussein from the Demagogue party.

Bush and Clnton's deregulation of the banking industry (in the late 90's) led to the debacle in the finance industry. This occurred on Bush's watch, but Congress was also sleeping. Pathetic.

Congress did not want to investigate Freddie and Fannie because the influential ones Dodd, Schumer and Obama had their campaigned well-financed by them.

joanie

Oh, Klueless, you so effortlessly omit McCain's name. Why is that?

Are we honesty-challenged on the right these days?

sparky

Here are the quotes I was looking for:

"No one can rightly deny the fundamental correctness of our economic system." --- Herbert Hoover, 1928

"The fundamental of our economy is strong." --- John McCain, 2008

"The fundamental of our economy is strong." --- George W. Bush, 2008

History doesn't repeat itself... it rhymes!

Plenty of blame to go around on why it happened....but McBush is not equipped to fix things because he doesnt think there is a problem.

chucks

Joanie
I can just see you (stopping post to vomit) rubbing yourself to orgasmic bliss because so many people are taking a bath. So many boomers are going to have to work longer before retiring, retarding the options for young people entering the work force.
We told you last year that this was going to happen. I have said that in the past, when there was no incombent POTUS that the party out of power would drive the economy in to the tank. The Dimocraps have done an outstanding job. Congratulations.
Now, I do hope that you followed my advice and moved your retirement funds in to the fixed account portfolio late last year, when I reccomended it to you. I would hate to subject those poor children to another three years of you because you lost your money on the market.
Now you want that young inexperianced dumb fuck obambam to save the country. Between him, peelosi and Dingy Harry, we would be totally screwed.

chucks

Oh, and mark this little aside. I believe that the market will bottom out with the Dow between 8000 and 8500.
When it hits 8500, it is time to get back in.

joanie

gee, chucks, most people think we already are - screwed that is.

Actually, you called it "safe harbor" and I didn't know what that was. So, I'll ride it out like everyone else.

I'm still working. Are you?

What's the interest on your fixed account?

And, yes, everybody knows it was the dereg of Reagan but you'll never admit it will you? This didn't happen overnight. Wonder why the regs are suddenly important to you boys on the right? If anyone looks uncomfortable right now, it's Paulson. Most people have a lot of respect for that guy. He's in an unwinnable situation thanks to you and yours.

BTW, it isn't money that makes me orgasmic. Please don't judge everyone by yourself, chucks.

joanie

I'll probably follow that little piece of advice, chucks.

And thanks.

That is, if I've got any money left at all...

joanie

and why are you up so late?

KS

"Plenty of blame to go around on why it happened....but McBush is not equipped to fix things because he doesnt think there is a problem."

Sez a progressive - Hah ! What a friggin joke ! Obambam is not equipped with his income redistribution Robin Hood socialism schemes and universal health care for all which will break the back of this country's economic system and force us into more Government control (i.e. socialism a la Western Europe). I believe that McCain needs to rethink some of his tax cuts and incorporate equivalent spending cuts to get the economy going again and at the same time get the government out the way !

Also put Sarah Palin out there on some non-liberally biased show - put her on O'Reilly first, then some of the Sunday News shows to show what she is really made of - most of the rest of us know that she will do OK.

sparky

Sure...she can just hire more lobbyists to get us money from.....somewhere...yeah, that's it. We will all be ok then.

Duffman

Posted by: joanie | September 15, 2008 at 08:51 PM

Does that mean you're not contributing?...one who uses up more of Bla'M's bandwidth than anyone herein? WOW, what a fine representative of a true liberal-progressive [sort of like Sen Biden]

joanie

You've become a joke, duffman. Too bad.

Duffman

...skeddadle, yet again; what's new. Never mind me why don't you pony up? Much like re-coil...just a bunch of hot air. Lo siento mucho.

sparky

joanie, Duffman just wants us to ask him how much HE has given. He has no clue who has given what.

Duffman

No I don't care how much anyone has given (except re-coil), I would expect that those who have benefitted with many hours of entertainment (& informed data) thanks to this blog would respond as best they can when the provider asks. Simple as that; you're wrong again as usual.

Tommy008

That must be Dori's libertarian streak showing through- he believes he has a right to strut around in a kilt, by God. And by God,as an American, or Amurrican,as Dori would say, he has a right to open Dori's "Whites Only" Diner and make the rest of you like it. Well,at least tolerate it, since he believes he should be able to do this legally- i heard him say so, on the air, this summer. Of course it was only a hypothetical used to demonstrate his libertarian philsophy of individual rights.Of course he'd never open a diner like that himself. Uh- you never would, would you,Dori?

Duffman

Don't you just love how Nancy Pelosi yet again absolves herself & Congress of any responsibility for our economic turmoil. What an incredible leader!

Duffman

A little Pre-emptive Strike before the 'blame' starts getting tossed around herein.

Less Than Zero

I found this on DailyKoss just now:

Here is a look at McCain’s back-and-forth on regulation during the last 24 hours:

- Deregulation: McCain issued a statement Monday morning saying that “we cannot tolerate a system that handicaps our markets and our banks.”

- Regulation: McCain’s campaign then put out an ad calling for “tougher rules on Wall Street.”

- Deregulation: This morning, on NBC’s Today Show, McCain said, “Of course, I don’t like excessive and unnecessary government regulation.”

- Regulation: Then, on CBS’s The Early Show, McCain said, “Do I believe in excess government regulation? Yes.”

- Both: On CNBC’s Squawk Box, McCain said, “We don’t want to burden average citizens with over-regulation and government bureaucracy...And I’m proud to be a Teddy Roosevelt Republican, who said, ‘unfettered capitalism leads to corruption,’ and we’ve got to fix this.”

This old fart needs to go to an old people's home.

Duffman

And...Heeeeeeeeeeer's Livni !!!

Duffman

While Sen Obama apparently got the endorsement of several women's groups he didn't get THIS Lady !

KS

Hats off to Lynn Forester de Rothchild ! Smart lady...

Agreed, Pelosi is the absolute worst Speaker of the House there has ever been. Her phony energy bill which actually made drilling offshore more restrictive will help the Dems a lot in their bid to be reelected. Way to go queen of the face-lifts !

Earlier, I would have said an Obama loss could be blamed on her. Now, with all of the thuggery from his surrogates - hacking into the Palin's email accounts, race baiting both by him, his surrogates and being duplicitous - a loss by Obama can be pinned squarely on his tactics; divide and conquer (which race-baiting tries to do) and the inability to control his surrogates. His plan for the economy is pathetic - no more than smoke and mirrors - he just loves to hear himself talk - Obla-bla.

We are beginning to get a good look at how ugly and corrupt Chicago-style politics is, Mssrs. Axelrod and Obama.

Duffman

Along with a more thorough vetting of the Dalai Obama's Chicago dealings, I think we need to completely vet the history of FDR and any possible connection he has/had with the good Senator.

Duffman

'..government intervention...essential...'

Per Pres Bush...minutes ago. Never thought I'd hear those words from a died-in-the-wool 'Republican'.
Is hell about to freeze over?

Duffman

...ergo, our financial system/economy has ostensibly been 'Nationalized'...WOW, INcredible!

...and our lovely and gracious Governor had better act soon on the State's pension system...cause it ain't lookin good!
