It's the same in any lingo

בַּת-בָּבֶל, הַשְּׁדוּדָה: אַשְׁרֵי שֶׁיְשַׁלֶּם-לָךְ-- אֶת-גְּמוּלֵךְ, שֶׁגָּמַלְתּ לָנוּ
אַשְׁרֵי שֶׁיֹּאחֵז וְנִפֵּץ אֶת-עֹלָלַיִךְ-- אֶל-הַסָּלַע


How can one be compelled to accept slavery? I simply refuse to do the master's bidding. He may torture me, break my bones to atoms and even kill me. He will then have my dead body, not my obedience. Ultimately, therefore, it is I who am the victor and not he, for he has failed in getting me to do what he wanted done. ~ Mahatma Gandhi
If I am not for myself, who will be for me? If I am not for others, what am I? If not now, when? ~ Rav Hillel, Pirke Avot

What Exactly Is The Office of the President Elect?

So if you happened to catch Pampers' press conference today you saw a placard on his lectern that said, "Office of the President Elect" with a tiny version of the Barackadential Seal on it.  He's still trying to convince us that he can do the job, while looking more and more like he can't.  I am filled with confidence.  It was very reassuring seeing him standing with his tutors, rattling off more cliches.  Awesome dude! 

Warning: Do not watch all 18 minutes of this, it might give you gas.



I couldn't help but notice that Pampers is making sure everyone knows that former Clinton administration advisors are part of his tutoring team (we already know Pampers had to talk to Big Dawg because the man who fell from Planet Asshat hasn't a clue as to what the hell he's doing).  Funny, I don't see Senator Clinton among them.  Here's her statement on the October jobs report:
“Under the Bush Administration, the American economy has lost jobs for 10 straight months. Today's report contains the worst unemployment rate in 14 years with our economy now having lost more than 1.2 million jobs in this last year alone. The Bush Administration has the worst job creation record of any administration since the Great Depression.

Businesses large and small are struggling to secure financing to survive. Families cannot find affordable mortgages and consumer loans. The housing crisis has wiped out hundreds of billions of dollars in home equity and grows deeper every day. This final chapter of the Bush Administration's ill-conceived economic policies cannot end soon enough.

We are in a recession and we must act decisively and wisely to change course, hasten a recovery, and reform the broken economic policies that will be the sad and disastrous legacy of the Bush Administration. Under a Democratic Congress and Administration, we will have the ability to do precisely that. In the coming weeks, as we consider a stimulus package, I believe we should pursue several goals that will help restore stability to our markets and financial system.

One, we must prevent another wave of looming foreclosures that will drive down home values and the broader financial markets. Twenty percent of Americans now hold mortgages that exceed the value of their homes. We must prevent as many unnecessary foreclosures as possible by rewriting mortgages for families committed to making monthly payments and acting responsibly. I have proposed, and will introduce, the Home Owners' Mortgage Enterprise, or HOME Act, to buy and rewrite mortgages at risk of failure. This is based on the successful Home Owner's Loan Corporation created during the Great Depression by President Roosevelt, which not only saved more than one million homes but also turned a profit while staving off foreclosures and preventing wider home values from falling further. We also should consider jump starting the housing market with a temporary tax credit to address record levels of low demand.

Two, a stimulus package should help displaced workers and struggling middle class and hardworking families. Extending unemployment insurance benefits for the hundreds of thousands of workers who will soon exhaust their benefits is necessary to ease the burden on those families who continue to seek work. Aid for struggling families facing higher home heating bills this winter must also be an urgent priority.

Three, we should also help our distressed states and cities. Our states, many of which face record budget shortfalls, need fiscal aid in order to fill their budget holes without having to sacrifice their critical health, social, and public safety services.

And four, we should consider steps to create jobs in the near term by targeting a stimulus that will not only boost the economy now but pay dividends in the future. For example, providing resources for states to begin construction on "fast-tracked" infrastructure projects will help create hundreds of thousands of new jobs while fixing our crumbling roads and deteriorating bridges, creating room for the economy to grow.

The challenges we face are daunting, and today's jobs report clearly shows that the road to recovery will be difficult. But it is imperative that we take these urgent steps that will kick start our economy and hasten our recovery.”
So Camp Pampers, when you decided to go with your messiah over Hillary, was it because of his blue ties, his smile, or do you just hate women? No, it's probably more like this: having someone in the White House that possessed the capacity to develop her own solutions, and not have to act (complete with Malibu Barry stage sets) like a leader in order to convince people she is...well...that would just make too much fucking sense wouldn't it?

I suspect it's probably just as painful for Senator Clinton to watch the man from Planet Asshat flounder about while the nation struggles as it is for us, especially when it is patently obvious she knows what the hell to do, and so obvious that he has not one clue.

Way to fucking go America.

Saying, "I told you so," has never been more satisfying, or more painful.

Oh, and how's that notion of the government seizing your 401K sounding right now? Eat shit Camp Pampers.

Thanks F.T.!

I've been experimenting with different background colors. I prefer the crimson, but I've gotten a couple complaints, even when I use the white text. I like this blue so I'm going with it for the moment.
