“We need a mixed economy—predominately private sector, but with a large role of government and public projects. This was the model that pulled us out of the Great Depression and led us through World War II, and the post-war Golden Age of Capitalism, The private sector is currently out of control. Greed and power has taken precedence over our rights as Americans. Government has the obligation to care for all of us. (the rich, the middle class and the poor). Currently, we have severe needs for public health care, job creation, food inspection, return of our industrial base and water management. Our general well being depends upon coming to grips with these problems. The future of our country relies on our ability to solve these issues. We must stop the political bickering, shouting down intelligent discussion and resolve the serious problems that exist.”

When the greed gets greedy it becomes a problem. The lobbists, the insurance companies are fighting health care reform. Why?

 GREEDY,

The greed  do not to give it a damn for a common person who can not afford the high rates. It is about how much profit they can put in their pockets. This kind of system pisses me off. The greed are never satisfied. Period


A citizen paying attention says;

I still can’t figure out how a person with 5 senses can go out ranting about the sitting president who was elected by the people for the people.Claiming he is a bastard and not American.That includes anyone who voted for President Obama according to Rush Limbaugh. I am having a problem understanding the cry from the right wing. What do they mean in “take back our country” slogan in all this crazy thinking of the Republicans. There is so much craziness going around the GOP. I am not going to take it as a joke. Something is wrong with their brains.

My head is spining since morning after reading

http://www.dailykos.com/story/2009/4/11/718888/-Hate-mail-Saturday

I am happy Kos showed us all that, and I encourage him to continue bringing it out in the open.

At the same time it made me feel like we are still in the middle of the elections, it is not yet over.

Thank you KOS. I am going back to do my work.
There is a reason we all worked so hard for change of leadership, I think, I am willing to do that for the next eight years.

This is a reason I chose to vote for an adult in the white house.
The kids that led us into this mess do not get it.

Refresh your heads and accept what you see in the white house. It is sooooooooooo refreshing. Let me share it.

Bigotry playing big with the Republican party and its followers. So sad, and shameful indeed.

Like I said before,

The Republican party and all followers should be required to change their brains in order to make it easier for Americans to deal with them.

I know some people said it is not a good idea that KOS posted those hate e-mails on the front page. Hey guys this is not fiction,it is reality we are dealing with. No need to cover blankets on problems. We all need to see what is been thrown out in the dark, and learn to handle issues like that. Who knows, it may be your neighbor with the crazy thought of shooting liberals, or anyone who supports Obama, or anyone who looks different from wingnuts.

For those of you who did not read kos’s thread. This is one of the hate e-mail from the right that he posted, you can read more on KOS’s thread. Thankyou Kos for posting it.

Hate E-mail from the right:

I read your pathetic Oboma ass kissing site and you people are fucking morons. I saw you on TV and you look like a little smug faggot. I think all liberals should paint themselves black and find some black ass to have gay sex with. You people are a disgrace to the white race and to America. Your bastard president and he is a bastard cuz his white mom was a single whore when she got knocked up with him. He is a one termer, he lied, he duped, he brainwashed Americans and now they are GETTING it. You live by your whacked out biased polls, I dont need fucking numbers to see what Americans minus the liberals think of this disgusting person and his dog face bucked teeth wife. THEY ARE HATED. I CAN ONLY HOPE HE DROPS FUCKING DEAD .”

This reminded me of why I supported Barack Obama to become the POTUS. Just what I read in those e-mails, was a big reminder of why we went out in numbers to vote for a democrat, and for that matter Barack Obama.

We the majority spoke louder on November, 4 2008.
Screw you guys, your hatred and threats are disgusting, with your stupid tea bag parties. Your threats against president Obama are dispicable and shameful. Go check yourselves when you go tea bagging and screw all of you nut cases. You lost brains with the obsession of supremacy egos.

So all democrats,or anyone who voted for President Obama is on the Satan side? ..and Republicans and Evangelicals are for the heavens?
Do Republicans know that not only blacks, but also whites voted for Obama?

guess what!
President Barack Obama is our POTUS:
take it or go hybernating somewhere in some dark holes.
May be after your Tea bagg’n parties, you will realize that actually president Obama has cut taxes for 95% middle class Americans.
It’s your time to pay, we did out time. If you are crying for the 5% rich tax cut. Hard luck.
Too bad so sad my friends.We the majority, will continue to fight and believe in what is right for every American. Equal rights and opportunities.


One of the most disappointing moment. Rep. Mike Doogan could not hide himself any longer.

What a shame!!!!
Rep. Mike Doogan: You have acted like  Judah  who sold Jesus.  I am sure your friend, who have been crying over bloggers in the pajamas must be very excited with your help. Right? 

Guess what . You just exposed yourself.

How do you feel when you look in the mirror?

Basically you have not only put mudflats’ ‘s life and career in danger but her entire family.

In short we should be scared of guys like you who can not take critism I guess. Wow.

This is America not Africa.  right?

Was  Rep. M Doogan  jelousy of mudflats popularity with her blog?

Some of these  guys  forget that people put them in the positions they are in.

We will watch Mike Doogan in the next elections.

Thanks for exposing yourself. You may step on Mudflats but you are not   shutting down the bloggers in the entire world.
If you belonged to the opposition, we would understand. But this coming from a democrat, is shameful. I am so speechless.

This is a shame. Really a Big shame.

Alaska Dispatch blog.

If you’re so inclined to carry this further, here is some helpful information that just might get Mr. Doogan some feedback about his actions!

If you want to really spread the word, you should email the Joint Committee on Legislative Ethics. Their emails are:

Representative_John_Coghill@legis.state.ak.us Representative_Berta_Gardner@legis.state.ak.us
Senator_Gary_Stevens@legis.state.ak.us

Here’s the email the cperson who commented sent to the Joint Ethics Committee:

Dear Reps. Coghill and Gardner and Sens. Stevens and Wagoner,

You may or may not be aware of this but a member of the Alaska House of Representatives, Rep. Mike Doogan, has taken it upon himself to trample upon the privacy of a citizen of Alaska.

Rep. Doogan recently unilaterally and maliciously revealed the identity of an anonymous female blogger who writes the blog Mudflats. Rep. Doogan’s actions were reprehensible and will involuntarily expose this poor woman and her family to the harsh light of the public media spotlight.

Please find below my email to Rep. Doogan complaining about his deplorable actions. As members of the Alaska legislature’s Joint Committee on Legislative Ethics, I hope that you will take this matter under advisement and consider how poorly these actions by Rep. Doogan tarnish the image of the Alaska legislature.

McCain And Palin Proud of Iraq war. Is It a war really to be proud of?

During an August 5, 2007 GOP Presidential debate televised on ABC Television, John McCain stated that, “it’s naive to say that we will never use nuclear weapons.”  This objectively terrifying comment fell by the wayside as McCain plummeted in the polls and seemed an electoral afterthought after Giuliani, Romney and even Huckabee ascended as leading candidates.  Now that the maverick Senator from Grand Canyon country has risen from the ashes to stand as the Republican candidate for President, this statement assumes a new and exigent relevance to the American people.

Even the most cursory examination of McCain’s pathology clearly indicates that he is both practically and ethically predisposed to do so.  When asked about whether evil exists and, if so, how should it be addressed at the Saddleback Forum, John McCain answered without hesitation “yes” and “it must be defeated.”  Trust me.  He was talking in terms of military might, not effectual fervent prayer.  This is classic John McCain.  He tends to see things in black and white.  He has neither the time nor the patience for nuance.  As evidenced by the summary selection process by which he selected his running mate (not to mention his second wife Cindy), the former bomber pilot assesses the situation in short order and takes instantaneous action.  Factor in a temper so volatile that McCain’s fellow GOP Senator and longtime friend Thad Cochran felt compelled as a matter of conscience to warn the voting public of his volcanic demeanor and you can see disaster looming just over the horizon.  

Try as he may to assume the role of heir apparent to the Reagan legacy, make no mistake – McCain is no Ronald Reagan in matters of war and peace.  For all Reagan’s public bluster, his actions proved time and again that he was committed at his core to winning the Cold war through economic and ideological means.  In McCain’s case, it is just the opposite.  At his core, he is still at war with both himself and his former captors.  His attempts to dialogue about reconciliation with our enemies are at best strained.  Yet his eyes dance with a manic glee and he is never at a loss for words when discussing the success of the surge.  It is instructive to ask yourself how many times McCain has mentioned the word “war” while on the campaign trail.  Then ask yourself how many times he has uttered the word “peace” during this same period.  The result of this accounting is as lopsided as it is valid in predicting McCain’s bloody path as President.

As if this preexisting appetite for destruction wasn’t enough cause for concern, consider that the Bush administration has shepherded the development of a new generation of what they call “usable nukes.”  According to former UN Weapons Inspector Scott Ritter, these new weapons are far more limited in scope than their Cold War predecessors.  The existing policy governing their use provides that in the event of an imminent significant loss of American troops in the field, usable nukes may be delivered to stop advancing enemy forces.  As Ritter points out, the potential consequences of letting the nuclear genie out of the bottle are disastrous.  Our enemies would almost certainly retaliate in kind and we could expect the unthinkable – a nuclear attack on our nation’s soil.  To most Americans, the concept of usable nukes is oxymoronic at best.  To John McCain, this concept represents a more efficient means to achieve a swifter victory.  

Moving on to McCain’s better-half, Alaska Governor Sarah Palin, we are presented with a commensurately combustible ingredient for our Armageddon goulash.  Despite the fact that this self-styled “pit bull with lipstick” has been portrayed as a paragon of Christian orthodoxy, Palin is steeped in a particular brand of end-times theology that views a nuclear holocaust as not only inevitable, but a fulfillment of God’s plan for Christ’s return.  Her pastor has spoken and written extensively on this topic, going so far as to proclaim that Alaska has a crucial role as a refuge for those believers caught up in the coming conflagration.  As an Evangelical Christian, I have met, confronted and ultimately walked away in abject disgust from far too many such types.  

Alaska Women Reject Sarah Palin Rally in Anchorage

Let me be clear – this cultic teaching has absolutely nothing to do with Christ’s call to his people to live in peace with their fellow man and love their neighbors as themselves.  Quite the opposite, it is little more than a cheap charade to justify all manner of nonsense from radical societal separation along racial lines to a cottage literary industry that has spewed forth reams of mediocre futuristic fiction.  Theology notwithstanding, it lends definition to Palin’s world view — a view that can be distilled down into the bumper sticker sloagan “kill’em all and let God sort it out.”  

The unpalatable truth that cries out for telling is that end-timers like Sarah Palin share a uniquely disturbing similarity with the most maligned factions in the Islamic community.  No less than Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad has made it clear that he envisions a horrific conflagration with the West as the catalyst for raising the legendary “Twelfth Imam” out of the well in which he has been hiding for over a millennium.  Upon the Imam’s return, the world will be shown the true path of Islam and order will be restored.  The thought of two theological dead-enders like Palin and Ahmadinejad attempting to negotiate a peaceful outcome to the ongoing Iranian nuclear dispute is inconceivable.  More likely, they would end up locked in mortal combat to see which one of them could best hasten God’s will for the destruction of humanity.    

And in the mind of John Mccain as president is more wars

A McCain/Palin victory this November puts in play personal pathologies and theological imperatives that bring our nation closer to a nuclear holocaust than ever before.  Paraphrasing McCain’s own broadside to Barack Obama’s patriotism, American voters must ask themselves the following question: whether a McCain/Palin administration would rather win a war they are losing than avert nuclear annihilation of a significant segment of humanity.  In all honesty, I can’t answer this question in the negative with any degree of confidence.  And that is one among many reasons why I cannot in good conscience give them my vote.

Statement of Senator Hillary Rodham Clinton
Thursday, Sep 4, 2008

The two party conventions showcased vastly different directions for our country. Senator Obama and Senator Biden offered the new ideas and positive change America needs and deserves after eight years of failed Republican leadership. Senator McCain and Governor Palin do not.

After listening to all the speeches this week, I heard nothing that suggests the Republicans are ready to fix the economy for middle class families, provide quality affordable health care for all Americans, guarantee equal pay for equal work for women, restore our nation’s leadership in a complex world or tackle the myriad of challenges our country faces. So, to slightly amend my comments from Denver: NO WAY, NO HOW, NO McCAIN-PALIN.

Palin E-Mails Show Intense Interest in Trooper’s Penalty

By James V. Grimaldi and Karl Vick
Washington Post Staff Writers
Thursday, September 4, 2008; A27

 

EAGLE RIVER, Alaska, Sept. 3 — Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin, the running mate for GOP presidential candidate John McCain, wrote e-mails that harshly criticized Alaska state troopers for failing to fire her former brother-in-law and ridiculed an internal affairs investigation into his conduct.

The e-mails were shown to The Washington Post by a former public safety commissioner, Walter Monegan, who was fired by Palin in July. Monegan has given copies of the e-mails to state ethics investigators to support his contention that he was dismissed for failing to fire Trooper Mike Wooten, who at the time was feuding with Palin’s family.

“This trooper is still out on the street, in fact he’s been promoted,” said a Feb. 7, 2007, e-mail sent from Palin’s personal Yahoo account and written to give Monegan permission to speak on a violent-crime bill before the state legislature.

“It was a joke, the whole year long ‘investigation’ of him,” the e-mail said. “This is the same trooper who’s out there today telling people the new administration is going to destroy the trooper organization, and that he’d ‘never work for that b****’, Palin’.)”

Asked about the e-mails, Palin’s campaign spokeswoman, Maria Comella, said that Palin was merely alerting officials to potential threats to her family and that there is no evidence that Palin ever ordered Wooten to be fired.

“Let’s be clear, Governor Palin has done nothing wrong and is an open book in this process. Mr. Monegan even stated himself that no one ever told him to fire anyone, period,” Comella said later in a statement. “The Governor was rightly expressing concern about Mr. Wooten.”

Palin is under investigation by a bipartisan state legislative body that was authorized last month to look into whether Palin pressured Monegan to force Wooten from the state police force and whether his failure to do so led to his dismissal.

Palin had promised to cooperate with the legislative inquiry, but this week moved to change the jurisdiction of the case to the state personnel board, which Palin appoints. Her attorney, Thomas V. Van Flein, who was hired last month, challenged the jurisdiction of Stephen Branchflower, the retired prosecutor hired to investigate and report back to the legislature by the last week of October.

When Palin entered the governor’s office in late 2006, Wooten already had been reprimanded, reassigned and suspended for five days for incidents reported by Palin’s family. They had filed complaints in April 2005 after her younger sister’s marriage fell apart and the couple battled in a bitter child-custody dispute.

Palin has said previously that she discussed Wooten with Monegan only in the context of security concerns for the family. Monegan has said that Palin never directly told him to fire Wooten but that the message was clearly conveyed through repeated messages from Palin, her husband and three members of her Cabinet.

“To allege that I, or any member of my family . . . directed disciplinary action be taken against any employee of the Department of Public Safety, is, quite simply, outrageous,” Palin said in a statement in mid-July after Monegan’s dismissal.

In August, Palin acknowledged that “pressure could have been perceived to exist, although I have only now become aware of it.”

During an interview here Wednesday, Monegan said that as Alaska’s top law enforcement official, he took his duties seriously. “I would willingly die for the governor, but I would never lie for her,” he said.

He showed The Post two e-mails he received from Palin, but he declined to give copies. The first e-mail came on Feb. 7, 2007, after the governor’s husband, Todd, met with Monegan to press the case for disciplinary action against Wooten. Palin’s family had accused the trooper of shooting a cow moose without a permit, Tasering his stepson, and drinking while driving a trooper vehicle. After her husband met with Monegan, Palin followed up with a phone call to Monegan.

In that first e-mail, sent a few weeks after the meeting, Palin encouraged Monegan to testify for a bill that would require 99-year sentences for police officers found guilty of murder. “For police officers to violate the public trust is a grave, grave violation — in my opinion. We have too many examples lately of cops and troopers who violate the public trust. DPS has come across as merely turning a blind eye or protecting that officer, seemingly ‘for the good of the brotherhood’.”

She cited Wooten’s case as an example of violating the public trust. She recounted his transgressions, beginning with the killing of the cow moose using a permit obtained by his wife. Molly McCann, who uses her name from a previous marriage, was with Wooten at the time.

“He’s still bragging about it in my hometown and after another cop confessed to witnessing the kill, the trooper was ‘investigated’ for over a year and merely given a slap on the wrist,” the e-mail said. “Though he’s out there arresting people today for the same crime!”

“He threatened to kill his estranged wife’s parent, refused to be transferred to rural Alaska and continued to disparage Natives in words and tone, he continues to harass and intimidate his ex. — even after being slapped with a restraining order that was lifted when his supervisors intervened,” the e-mail said. “He threatens to always be able to come out on top because he’s ‘got the badge’, etc. etc. etc.)”

Palin wrote that the Wooten matter had contributed to “the erosion of faith Alaskans should have in their law enforcement officials.” She concluded by saying the e-mail was “just my opinion.”

The second e-mail Monegan produced came from Palin’s Yahoo address on July 17, 2007, after the local newspaper publicized a legislative proposal that would keep guns out of the hands of the mentally ill.

Her first thought about the bill, the e-mail said, “went to my ex-brother-in-law, the trooper, who threatened to kill my dad yet was not even reprimanded by his bosses and still to this day carries a gun, of course.”

“We can’t have double standards. Remember when the death threat was reported, and follow-on threats from Mike that he was going to ‘bring Sarah and her family down’ — instead of any reprimand WE were told by trooper union personnel that we’d be sued if we talked about those threats. Amazing. . . .

“So consistency is needed here,” the e-mail said. “No one’s above the law. If the law needs to be changed to not allow access to guns for people threatening to kill someone, it must apply to everyone.”

Research editor Alice Crites in Washington contributed to this report


After a segment with NBC’s Chuck Todd ended today, Republican consultant Mike Murphy and Wall Street Journal columnist Peggy Noonan were caught on a live mike ridiculing the choice of Sarah Palin.
“It’s over,” said Noonan, and then responded to a question of whether Palin is the most qualified Republican woman McCain could have chosen.

“The most qualified? No. I think they went for this — excuse me — political bullsh** about narratives,” she said. “Every time Republicans do that … because that’s not where they live and it’s not what they’re good at and they blow it.”

Murphy chimed in:

“The greatness of McCain is no cynicism, and this is cynical.

This is the chance America! To end the politics of lies and divisions! Of Karl Rove smears.   No more self-serving propaganda! 

The Media didn’t tell the truth so we got the Iraq War based on a lie!
