Well-written, and flaming.

"to a bill to give the District of Columbia a voting representative in the House."

Just like Congress to usurp the Constitution. Whats next?


fairness doctrine seems oxymoronic, much like noble scott

Oregon Coast

OK, The Senate Bill with the Fairness Doctrine passed yesterday 87-11. NOT SO FAST, Bla'M... the following amendment (#591) was also buried in this bill;

"- The amendment by Senator Dick Durbin (D-Illinois) would achieve the same goals of the Fairness Doctrine through backdoor FCC regulations. His legislation forces the FCC to “take actions to encourage and promote diversity in communication media ownership,” an attempt to dismantle successful syndicated radio programs. The Durbin amendment would hurt small, local radio stations who depend on popular syndicated programming for listeners and revenue."

Seems like some shuck and jive going down by the "Progressive" Left. In other words, the headline of Fairness Doctrine being revoked was declawed by the "Turban" Durbin amendment. The door is open for something similar to it, under a different guise to be inflicted on the airwaves. This did not show up in the major media outlets because of their ritalin riddled brains with a lack of patience to read through the entire bill. This is part of the same bill. No surprise - pretty much as I predicted.

I'd like to see a post about the economy, which will undoubtedly open up a lively discussion, chalk full of misinformation and politicking.


I bet you guys sleep with a night light.


have to there are dem cockroaches all over the floor. they like it down there.


Robert Johnson, economist, calmly and intelligently talking about the economy now being called the greatest terrorist threat around the world.

check it out

(Save your time, Steven and KS, since it doesn't come from Drudge or Savage, you won't get it anyway.)


I just realized that that makes Bush the number one terrorist... I wonder if the world's gonna come after him?

Oregon Coast

"I just realized that that makes Bush the number one terrorist... I wonder if the world's gonna come after him?"

I believe that you purposely omitted Barney Frank and Chris Dodd, not to mention Harry Reid and Nancy Pelosi - they are terrorists for obstruction of legislation that would have saved us from this debacle, which was suggested by the Republicans in 2005, but repudiated by the putrid lefties mentioned above. Nice try.

Oregon Coast

one minor change... they are terrorists for obstruction of legislation that would have saved us from a significant portion of this debacle..


My we're having a lot of new well-spoken posters on the right, aren't we? :)

You should know by now that I don't respond to tired faux arguments. But, nice try yourself.


old and newly named


And Joanie doesn't respond to the truth unless it is presented by one of the Libs greatest truth sayers, Randi Rhodes. Thats why she has been posted lightly lately, no Randi to get her info from.


And if you notice, Sparky is going to her one liners because she cant think clearly with all the ghost haunting her for calling them on the phone and pleading for them to vote for Obama. Just like Hillary did last week in China. Pleading for the Chinese to buy our debt. Isn't it hypocritical of all these Libs to paint Bush as selling his country out to China but now when Obama does it, they are quiet as a mouse.

How about you Joanie, did your school put out the new rules to start teaching the kids at an early age that if you dont graduate, you are not patriotic.


Section 2.

"The House of Representatives shall be composed of members chosen every second year by the people of the several states, and the electors in each state shall have the qualifications requisite for electors of the most numerous branch of the state legislature."

Since when did D.C. become a state. Or did the Constitution just get ammended while i was asleep last night.

Article V

"The Congress, whenever two thirds of both houses shall deem it necessary, shall propose amendments to this Constitution, or, on the application of the legislatures of two thirds of the several states, shall call a convention for proposing amendments, which, in either case, shall be valid to all intents and purposes, as part of this Constitution, when ratified by the legislatures of three fourths of the several states, or by conventions in three fourths thereof, as the one or the other mode of ratification may be proposed by the Congress; provided that no amendment which may be made prior to the year one thousand eight hundred and eight shall in any manner affect the first and fourth clauses in the ninth section of the first article; and that no state, without its consent, shall be deprived of its equal suffrage in the Senate."

I think the courts will decide this to be Unconstitutional and the Fairness Doctrine will be back in play when the Libs need it next election cycle. We all know how slow the courts are. And if a simple voter doesnt have standing to ask that a candidate to prove he is elgible to serve as President. Then who will have standing on this matter.


I'm laughing at you Steven. You're a blustery old fool.

And really, who cares? We've got Obama. Rant and rail till the cows come home. Who cares?


steven, why so hung up on the ladies tonight, this is like 5 nights in a row...


But Joanie - you're only a simple school teacher, what do you know about things like the complex world of politics?

But I did find your "we've got Obama" statement amusing. He's filled his administration with ex-Bushies, sent 20,000 more troops to Afghanistan, his great plan for evacuation from Iraq sees no change until 2010 and then leaving 60,000 there until 2025, voted for FISA, opposed the Fairness Doctrine, compliment Gitmo ... but you don't really care about your silly little leftist vision for America, like many simple peasants you just want your beer and pretzels and as long as you're being fed by someone with a D next to their name you don't care what their actual policies are. You have an animal-like, visceral need to feel you've accomplished something. The neanderthal remnant in the human brain, the need to be part of a group. Ergo "you've" got Obama.

But, in light of above, is it us who have really "got Obama"?

You poor old fool. Poor, poor, poor, simple old fool. You'll live the rest of your life being led around on a leash and never even realize it.

Puget Sound

you try and have a serious discussion and all they can do is act like disingenuous trolls.


She who laughs last, laughs best.

Hahahahahahahahahahaha. Rail away you fools.

And GG, at least you have steven and sputs on your side.

Oh dear! That makes me laugh even harder. Thanks. I needed a really good laugh.

Puget Sound

actually, it would be more accurate if you substituted the word 'bray' for laugh in your case.

if you want a real laugh, try the dennis miller show. in addition to the serious stuff he'll bring on people like dana carvey or frank caliendo. two comedians who have never met and just let them work off each other for the entire hour. just damn funny. politics aside for a little bit of the day.


Stephanie Miller is better. DM looks like he slept in his clothes.

Dave (not dave ross)

joanie, i have to say the robert johnson blog on moyers was sobering, and he his an economist who can explain what is really going on with ease and some humor.


Just got home from the science fair at school...

Steven, I have no ghosts. I dont agree with everything that Obama does, but I definitely do not have buyer's remorse, nor do I hear ghosts. I am overall pretty happy with how things are turning out.
Sorry to disappoint.

As far as China goes, I dont excuse their lack of human rights. But when a country the sise of China basically owns us, what do YOU suggest we do???? If WalMart, KMart, Target, Big Lots, and a whole string of drugstores didnt have cheap Made in China shit to sell, you and a lot of other people would be out of a job.


After our ethically challenged Sec of State visited China and groveled for their business, zero was asked what he would do with Red China?

"Use a purple table cloth of course," he replied.

Sleep tight.


Wait Sparky, I dont have a problem with borrowing the money from China, didnt have a problem when Bush did it for our security, and dont have a problem with Obama doing it to try and solve this mess these Libs got us into. But for you to now say its okay after giving Bush so much shit for it is hypocritical. Its like you are saying you would rather see hundreds of 9-11 style attacks on the USA then seeing someone standing in an unemployment line for a month or two.

And what does the size of China have to do with borrowing money from them?
