Also, I wish I had two sets of hands, so I could give those titties four thumbs down.
Or are laptops/desktops now a dead media? (fax me the answer to that one)
That's some petty, cold shit right there. Don't you have a daughter Goldy?
its an awkward subject....
Not the result of a protest riot.....
That Stevens was on a terrorist hit list?
And knew it?
And spent the last weeks of his life fearing for his life?
And that Obama did not protect him?
Why didn't you post that, ShitHead?
The Democrats need to use that now.
Run ads with vets asking Senate Republicans BY NAME why he (or she) stopped the bill that would help vets.
Particularly if they could match a pro-war vote then to an anti-vet stance today.
Because the senate democrats are spineless, gutless, cowards.

Faggots don't understand breasts.....
The constant litany of “Supreme Court choices” as a motivating factor in reelecting the neocon administration of President Obama doesn’t really hold up when all the data is examined.
Those closely following federal court jurisprudence will understand what we say when it is explained that the majority of truly important cases never make it to the supreme court, while too many trivial cases do end up there.
The Citizens United case should never have made it to the SCOTUS level, where the vile decision was written by the so-called “liberal” Justice David Kennedy (so described by newsy pundits).
The really important judicial decisions, antithetical to democracy, to the citizenry, to working people and those seeking work, are rendered by the federal courts.
This structure isn’t by chance, but careful design, put in place back in 1978, and incrementally improved over the past thirty-some years.
The US Chamber of Commerce established the National Chamber Litigation Center to this very end, back in 1978.
Thus, when the populist Jesse Ventura urges American voters to reject their usual choice of militant ignorance, and seek the third party solution, he is quite correct.
Today, the government has the “legal” right to access all personal information about the citizenry without their knowledge, thanks to the Obama Administration and judicial decisions from the federal courts; this is no justification to reelect.
Obviously, the strategy was to find the vilest, most despicable American possible to run against Obama, making him appear pristine by comparison. In this they’ve been most successful with their choice of the vile, despicable Romney (and Ryan).
Whether from indoctrination or mass advertising, too often Americans choose to remain ignorant --- and it is a choice!
Recently, like many others, I was approached to make a donation against the validation of Wisconsin’s Gov. Walker in his recall election. Naturally, I declined --- not having the money was beside the point --- having watched the exit interviews of union members from the Walker’s first election to governor, I was convinced of their militant choice to remain ignorant.
I was sadly proven correct: 40% of union households in Wisconsin voted for Walker in both elections!
Presently, we see the workers at Bain’s Sensata facility, whose jobs are being offshored to China, having finally recognized the impact of jobs offshoring (now that it has affected them), and blithely explaining how they were taken by surprise?
Amazing, given the overwhelming data to suggest that was the likely outcome!
I have personally witnessed this type of behavior again and again and again; where the workers refuse to acknowledge the obvious --- where they chose ignorance above all!
Now the Bain-owned company workers are begging Bain not to offshore their jobs; the psychopaths just love to see them beg.
Of course, those pathetically begging workers don’t realize this as they’ve chosen to remain ignorant all along.
Those of us who’ve been actively fighting jobs offshoring --- one of their major tools in the dismantling of the economy --- since 1978, the same year of the Powell memorandum, the year the USCoC established their National Chamber Litigation Center, and the Rockefeller Foundations’ creation of the Group of Thirty --- view the begging workers with disgust and disdain.
(At this late date, thirty years too little, too late, they would probably be better served going back to watching their sports, cable TV and movies, etc.)
Special notes: Awhile back, Goldy wrote an excellent blog piece on monies flowing from the most democratic parts of the state, to the most neocon areas. This is the uniform and standard pattern in all 50 states, and at the federal level, monies flowing from the most blue states to the most red states (Alaska, Mississippi, Alabama, etc.). This is no accident but stems from the efforts of USCoC's National Chamber Litigation Center of the past three decades.
Also, the Group of Thirty, was established to support the central bankers and the speculators, essentially the same thing, or so heavily interlocked they may as well be. Larry Summers and Paul Krugman have long been members, and even though Krugman repeatedly tells simpletons and fools he's a "liberal," Krugman consistently has always come down on the side of the speculators and central bankers although, occasionally, he words his position to suggest he's for "the people." Krugman claimed there was no housing bubble when it was obvious to all, claimed there wasn't any speculation taking place in the oil/energy markets (and refinery-involved chemicals, and transportation [freight forward futures, etc.]) when the paper price of oil was 13.8 times the physical price --- and Goldman Sachs, Morgan Stanley, JPMorgan Chase and Citigroup were making a fortune by said speculation through their hedge funds. Krugman has claimed the banks were healthy, instead of the obvious zombie banks, etc., etc., etc.
If the devil tells the simpleton he's a "liberal" -- too often the simpleton will believe it.
Ah, Theodore. Feminism is so lucky to have you on our side.
And what TVDinner @17 said. Seriously, Goldy. Fat jokes?
Way to put it, Rotten666.
