Lf corse yo would want Al Jazeera, Hood, you socialist, diversity-junkie.

dave, not dave ross

i am sure it is online at justintv.com

Listening to the radio this afternoon..you have to read European or Asian newspapers to learn that the Muslim Brotherhood is staunchly against an Islamic form of government.

Sartooth

Fox and the right-wingers are demonizing Obama by demonizing the Musim Brotherhood, who's very name makes them guilty of being bad guys.

KS

Just a few thoughts - the left whines, pisses and moans about the Koch Brothers contributing millions to conservatives and the Tea Party.

but when the millions contributed by George Soros to the liberal progressives is mentioned - no problem. If anything, Soros and the Open Society funding mechanism is more widespread and deeper than the Koch Brothers. Granted, conservatives are pissed off about this and justifiably so. Soros and his minions are out to destroy our freedoms with their one-world cabal. Soros would like instability in the middle east because it helps his bankroll (i.e. Egypt). The lib progs dislike the Koch Bros. are doing because they are the counter weight to Soros.

Go ahead - call me a Beckophile or a beckerhead, but I'll laugh back because there are other credible sources that I have read that have come to this conclusion. Basically, I don't give a shit what you all might think and more power to anyone who agrees.

BlackRhino

Just another thought, the right bemoans a left leaning rich dude every time the right wing rich dude is criticized. The left winger is trying to do something for the people and the righty is trying to screw us all. Ok I’ll call you a Becker head, “Becker head”, because no one else is that stupid.

Welcome back KS….

KS you haven't been paying attention.
Soros decided to pull back from funding the Dems for awhile. It was a problem during the elections in November.

We have tried to move on from the "you do it too" conversations.

Progressive Blog Junkie

2hrs and 33minutes. The time it took Sparky to realize how childish her post in the Beck thread was. Maybe that was why i changed my politics. I didnt want to start whining my way into other peoples living rooms about how the repubs are not acting fast enough. Would it be silly of me to say Sparky defended Obama on this blog when the right leaning posters started whining that Obama wasnt moving fast enough. No games from me. None of this... "Na na na na na...you did then so now i will now just to show you"...stuff. Sparky if you are older than 18, please act your age. This blog already as a young'un in rhino.

joanie

Soros again? Who the hell let KS back in?

It has been such a nice blog and nobody at all said "Soros" even once.


Back to the thread: I litened to Amy Goodman over the week and she got a lot of her information from Al Jezeera She was constantly updating even while interviewing various guests.

As for your "few thoughts," KS, if you'll notice your's is the longest post so far and says the least about the topic.

Frankly, I"m not calling you anything. I wish you'd go away again.

Progressive Blog Junkie

And now how does a Progressive defend the President when he tells O'Rally that the toughest part of being president is watching the Superbowl in a suit. I cant think of anyway to defend this. What about the dead soldiers wives, mothers, and fathers he had to write letters home to sadly say they gave their life for their country. I couldnt say he was joking. Because he then seriously answered that it was "the bubble" he was in. What a mess the Progressive have to sort through. Undefensible. Like Green Bays Offense.

Hard to say less than your posts, Ph(J)oanie which said nothing. The feeling is mutual - go away & take a trip to Baffin Island without your students. As long as you are here with your echo chamber - it's going to get lonely in stretches with a few dissenters that pass by, but now the thrill is gone and that includes the one up Chris Matthews' leg from 2008.

joanie

PB&J hasn't noticed that there's little defending of the President on this blog. Do you know of a mess we have to sort our way through, Rhino? I don't. You think PB&J is used to messes on the right? Think maybe he's projecting a bit?

Right Leaning and Right

We have al jazeera tv. It is called Current TV here. It is the struggling network started by Algore.
With all of the praying the members of the Church of Algore have been chanting, it looks like they may just have found their Savior.
Joanie, are you ready to get a little wet?
Algore TV will announce the signing of %*&^# &*)#$&[email protected] to their network.

joanie

Well, Rat Bastard, these your friends? I hope not. We seem to be in for another Soros AlGoreum ad nauseum.

Right Leaning and Right

Oh joanie, there you go again with the negatives. I just wanted to wet your whistle for tomorrows announcement that Algore's network, Current TV has signed Mr Keith Olbermann to a new deal.
As for the rest of you,you can frequently get Al jazeera tv simulcast on LinkTV, channel 375 to DirecTV subscribers.

Right Leaning and Right

That's right!!! I said it.
Keith Olbermann has a job.

Coiler

When will you get one?

Right Leaning and Right

I have two. Both of them suck but get the kids tuition paid and put meat on the table.

Howdie

324 stations at your house? You are getting screwed by (right wing)
Comcast.
I cancelled my Comcast. I invite people to do the same.
[Why give those really right corporations any business].

saintrudy

Glad to hear Obermann is comming back, the sooner the better. We need more people out there that expose the Repukeican lies. Any one ever notice the right spews their FACTS it usually an opinion from a right wing nut as opposed to the left or center that back up their claims with documents or actual film clips??

sparky

Hey Peanutbutterjellytime:

"Republican Rep. John Kline is a sponsor of a resolution in the U.S. House that would reaffirm “In God We Trust” as the national motto and encourages the posting of the motto on government buildings and in public schools."

Where are the jobs Mr. Boner??

sparky

Oh yes...also in the House, a bill was introduced by the Democrats to make it a rule that flags draped over the coffins of returning dead soldiers be American Made.

The republicans voted no. Can't be protectionists, ya know.

So, Im really enjoying watching how the Republicans are showing us, by golly, how to run a government!

BUBBA

Can't we get back to paying people to dig holes in the ground and then paying them to fill them in again?

Where's my govt holez, dammit! ;-)

gregoverlander

They haven't said anything about job creation because they have no ideas for job creation. And no interest in it.

beltane

Here's what they must do:

They must commission an artist to produce a poster of Ronald Reagan, Jesus Christ, and Sarah Palin kneeling before a flag waving Glenn Beck, and then demand that this poster be placed in every public and private building in the country. That should keep them busy for a while.

wyvern

No way Republicans are going to work on creating jobs.

More jobs will mean a better economy.

A better economy strengthens Obama politically going into the 2012 campaign season.

So all they are going to do is fart around & pander to the birthers, abortion nuts & the other clueless idiots who sent them to Washington.

Thanks.

Shit happens!! Obama is living proof.

BlackRhino

Ohh, someone has a bit of brains…isn’t that cute?

joanie

Well, if someone did get paid to put up all those posters of the religious righties, at least they'd have a job.

Gotta look at the bright side, beltrane.

It's the only positive I see on the horizon.

Progressive Blog Junkie

Sparky, if you are looking for jobs just read your own post. I see it as a start. Like Cash for Klunkers was. It got the auto companies back in shape. This resolution, at no cost to the Government (unlike the $4 billion Obama spent) could possibly create 5 full time jobs in every county in the US. Lets see if the Progressives give it a chance.

KS

The solution for jobs is adopting at least some of the measures recommended by the Deficit commission formed by the President. Since they came out with their recommendations, the White House has given them the cold shoulder.

The Deficit commissions' recommendations would significantly reduce the spending and make the Federal Government smaller, but it would also help create jobs, Sparky - as the private sector would feel less uncertainty about the future and start hiring. Boehner, nor Obama, or Reid cannot create jobs - they can only get out of the way by repealing some of the onerous regulations and lowering corporate tax rates (which they will whine and squeal about doing) - makes one wonder - do they really care about jobs ? Maybe a little, but they are most concerned about retaining power in 2012.

Coiler

What kind of compensation are these retired folk on the commission making?

joanie

Yes, polluting water and air with cancerous toxins is sure the way to create jobs. And my social security money could probably keep somebody employed for a couple years . . . at slave wages.

But then, that's the future isn't it? And lowering tax rates - when we have te lowest tax rates in the world already - is sure going to bring those jobs back aren't they?

"Certainty" - what a gulp of propaganda.

joanie

"lowest corporate tax rates" already.
