good luck with that,there are truths,exagerations and obfuscations in most statements.

the bail out bill started 3 pages,ended up around 450.try decifering who voted for what."he voted for that bill,he voted for this",riders get votes that bills don't.

bill riders should be stopped,but then nothing would pass.

Obama did better when he went away for a bit.

His "there is no real America or fake America" bit is working.

Besides . . . Matanuska-Susitna! How can you possibly top that for an almost-kinda-sorta-alma mater?

Today's news item:

"Law enforcement agents have broken up a plot by two neo-Nazi skinheads to assassinate Democratic presidential candidate Barack Obama and shoot or decapitate 88 black people, the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco Firearms and Explosives said Monday."

Scary shit.

They are REALLY gonna have to watch for, weed out and put away these moronic, subhuman fucks. The equivalent of raking up all the leaves around your yard, and gettin' em in the trash.

This country is reaching a crossroad; we haven't yet left the 20th century, but we're approaching the gates; WHO can say what's waiting for us all beyond those gates?

Historically, I always kind of sensed that 1915 marked the true beginning of the 20th century - when, more-or-less, 19th century attitudes, aesthetics, lifestyles, and economics were visibly shedding.

I'll bet the years of transition for us will be relatively the same.

(The more depressing news today was related to the votes-stealing issue; I learned that in North Carolina, if you vote a straight ticket on that computer, it will automatically void your presidential vote. Thus, thousands voting for Obama saw the computer glitch out their votes.

And, of course, news continues coming out all over the country of McCain supporters leaving deceptive robocalls about Obama, or of disenfranchising voters who saw their votes switch from Democrat to Republican.

And the depressing news is the Justice Departments will not step in to investigate or apprehend or arrest the assholes perpetrating this shit. Basically, this is the equivalent - no, the absolute sense - of a coup. It's a passive coup; that is, the voters factored in to get us where we are, many voluntarily voting against their own interests.

This is NOT the "greatest county in the world"; it certainly isn't the most free, except for the top wealthiest. Time to wake up, and part the myths.

And at a Palin rally somebody yelled from the crowd, "and he's a nigger."

This shit scares the hell out of me.

Even if Obama wins I see a gang of right wing dogs prowling our alleys and highways, spreading like some vile disease. Fascism has a creeping effect.

This electronic voting thing just isn't working. Computers can't be trusted.

Go with paper! Works everytime. . .

I had a gut-wrenching nightmare only recently.

A modern day civil war, following Obama's move to the White House.

The right-wing militant rednecks across the country spent decades touting the 2nd Amendment, and now we learn why: they take up arms and converge at the gates of the White House by the thousands, literally to drag Obama out of office!

They confront Federal troops, and blood bath ensues.

It's the day of reckoning.

The Morlocks will finally come into the daylight. Let the purge begin.

is this for real,or just more potential spin we need to hack through to find the truth?

or is this what frank was talking about

My own daughter is now having fun with (read "fucking with") me.

Anybody know how to do that cross-out text? Twain used it all the time in his letters and I love it as a device. I'm guessing it's easy but I'm a bit slow on some fronts.
