    No surprises here – 28-year GOP staffer has something to say about the blah guy in the white peoples’ house and the insanity that ensues.

    “… Of course the media is kind of covering it like the Michigan-Ohio State game, and love anything with a countdown clock or supposed suspense and all this other crap, and the easy visuals of some park service guy putting up a sawhorse at the Jefferson Memorial. None of that surprised me. [But] this is not something happening according to exigent circumstances or happenstance. This is something that the GOP wanted.

    And I’ll say this: I am not an Obama partisan. I have many bones to pick with him, including the healthcare bill. If your intent was to insure as many people as possible, you’d have single payer. You also wouldn’t pay off big Pharma and the insurance companies. That said, the difference between what Obama and the Republicans are doing is like the difference between stomach upset and galloping Ebola.

    These people are basically neo-Confederate insurrectionists. They are in substantive rebellion against the orderly government of the country. And one of the things I noticed — and it’s something that’s very common in human beings — we all try to mollify or appease the crazy uncle at Thanksgiving dinner. You know, “Don’t make a scene.” Well, I noticed in the last few years of my service on the Hill that a number of Democrats seemed to be afraid of Republicans. And Obama pretty much wasted his first term trying to mollify them. I think he’s finally stumbled upon a strategy that’s better: simply not give them what they demand. Because this is a deliberate strategy to hold the government hostage.” http://www.salon.com/2013/10/08/ex_gop_insider_unloads_blame_neo_confederate_insurrectionists_for_shutdown/

    Can we say “backpedal”….. 😎

    Probably after being reminded that advocating the deliberate and malicious shutdown of the DC Beltway, along with the expected and associated danger to life and limb that would lead to potentail personal libaility, the Trucker shutdown guy has gone FECK…….

    Michele Bachmann said, “His day is at hand,” believing the end times are here and she’s going to meet her maker.

    (In her case, Dr. Frankenstein, but I digress.)

    Also, your far-right politicians, probably believing that all brown people everywhere are secret members of al Qaeda, and that Barack Obama being brown is secretly a secret member of al Qaeda, think he is secretly arming secret al-Qaeda terrorists in Syria.

    (Notwithstanding your loving “bring me closer to god” drone policies.)

    Meanwhile, Rep. Ted Yahoo, er, I mean Yoho, Yoho, R-Fla., said that reaching the debt limit could help the economy, by showing the world the U.S. is serious about its debt problem. “I think, personally, it would bring stability to the world markets,” he told The Washington Post Monday.

    (Like the French Revolution helped relieve migraines amongst the Aristocratic class.)

    These days, reading or hearing newsbites from the US requires at least 4 advils.

    In today’s 24/7 global media village, where I can get CNN and Fox in my little French village, I don’t know if you realize how much damage to your country these clowns are inflicting.

    Supposedly Twitter suspended his account where he was organizing this and I believe some authorities spoke to him about the consequences he could face. I also believe it would have been a total flop as I just don’t see truck drivers having an interest in spending their free time (and gas) driving a truck in heavy traffic. It was a dumb idea all around — very childish.

    My favorite line of the promo ad has to be this one:
    ” Finally, for reasons entirely unrelated to who may or may not have been involved in shutting down the US Government, we also appear to have Redneck Rampage on sale 50% off.”

    What was on the BC that was embarrassing?

    And I explained the legal term “embarrass.” I also posted the long list of unanswered questions from my “Waiting for Zullo” article. Both are gone. Someone else explained “embarrass” though and it’s still there.

    Every day during the crisis, excited callers to my radio show draw parallels between today’s GOP stalwarts and the doughty band who fought to the last man at the Alamo or the 300 Spartans who perished at Thermopylae in 480 B.C. Is it merely coincidence, I’ve been asked, that the number of Republicans in today’s House and Senate comes to a combined total of just about 300? (Actually, 278 — but close enough).

    Doomed role models

    It does little good to point out the obvious problem with invoking such fierce examples as role models for today’s conservatives: United Flight 93 crashed and burned, killing all on board; William Wallace was drawn and quartered by his English enemies; the defenders of the Alamo were slaughtered; and the 300 Spartans were overwhelmed by invading Persian hordes. The problem with doomed, hopeless struggles is that they’re doomed.

    In 1927, an American socialist, Norman Thomas, six times candidate for president on the Socialist Party ticket, said the American people would never vote for socialism. But he said under the name of liberalism, the American people would adopt every fragment of the socialist program…Prediction turned to truth.

    After the L.A. Dodgers eliminated the Atlanta Braves on Monday to advance to the National League Championship Series, Braves fan Paul Kaplan wrote to his congressman, Rep. Jack Kingston.

    “Like you, I’m sure, I am profoundly disappointed that the Atlanta Braves lost the NLDS last night,” Kaplan wrote. “And to the Dodgers — a bunch of California liberals!”

    “This outrage cannot be allowed to stand. But the system has failed us. We tried to resolve this issue through traditional means: In last night’s game alone, we must have sent batters to the plate at least 40 times. But just because we couldn’t score enough runs, the Dodgers refuse to relinquish the title — and worse, they won’t even discuss it.”

    Applying government-shutdown thinking to the problem, Kaplan concludes that “Congress should outlaw Major League Baseball until the Dodgers cave.”

    This analog is making the rounds lately:

    “So, Imagine that the company you work for held a poll, and asked everyone if they thought it would be a good idea to put a soda machine in the break room. The poll came back, and the majority of your colleagues said “Yes”, indicating that they would like a soda machine. Some said no, but the majority said yes. So, a week later, there’s a soda machine. Now imagine that Bill in accounting voted against the soda machine. He has a strong hatred for caffeinated soft drinks, thinks they are bad you you, whatever. He campaigns throughout the office to get the machine removed. Well, management decides “OK, we’ll ask again” and again, the majority of people say “Yes, lets keep the soda machine.” Bill continues to campaign, and management continues to ask the employees, and every time, the answer is in favor of the soda machine. This happens, lets say… 35 times. Eventually, Bill says “OK, I’M NOT PROCESSING PAYROLL ANYMORE UNTIL THE SODA MACHINE IS REMOVED”, so nobody will get paid unless management removes the machine. What should we do???

    Answer: Fire Bill and get someone who will do the fucking job.

    Bonus: Bill tells everyone that he was willing to “Negotiate”, to come to a solution where everyone got their payroll checks, but only so long as that negotiation capitulated to his demand to remove the soda machine.

    Bill is a fucking jackass.”

    Over at ORYR and percolating through the rest of the Reichwing web space is the latest claim from “Dr” Jim Garrow

    It appears Old Dr Jim is now revealing that Obama had not only Breitbart killed but also Tom Clancy

    Obama’s administration is made up of Marxist Muslims who all take their orders from Senior Adviser to the President, Iranian-born Valerie Jarrett.

    All the worlds intelligence agencies know the President is a Mooslem, Commie, Marxist implant funded by the Saudi royal family

    Every single record and piece of paper around the President is forged

    etc etc etc

    The interesting part is Dr Jum now says he is a 45 year member of the CIA a well as apparently a Noble Peace Prize nominee

    Curiously the CIA never confirms or denies ever that anyone is or was a member and the nominee list is not released for 50 years so, basically he’s a lying sack of poo…still he’s a Birfer so, qu’elle suprise

    Read about the nut-job triumvirate that links birtherism, gun rights, and Islamophobia:

    “Outside the spectacle, the protest boasts a top-notch cast of characters. Its chief spokeswoman is Zeeda Andrews, a former country singer who Gawker says has distinguished herself more in recent years through ‘a nice mélange of right-wing shouting, Islamophobia, and crackpot conspiracy theorizing.’ In a YouTube commentary on the Benghazi attack, she said, ‘call me crazy but, Osama Bin Laden is our President Obama. Do your research.’ Okay, Andrews, we’ll do some fact-checking and get back to you. A parallel protest on the west coast has been planned by conservative radio host Peter Santilli; Santilli’s newest business parntner is Pennsylvania police chief Mark Kessler, who made headlines this summer for telling ‘all you libtards’ to ‘take it in the ass’ on camera. When Kessler was fired from his job at the end of September, Santilli set him up with a radio show.”

    From the twitfeed:

    http://thelastgreatstand.com/lgs/2013/10/11/barack-obamas-kenyan-birth-certificate/

    Wherein we can read much exciting news!

    First, a Texas congressman’s autopen is more than happy to stoke the fevered dreams of ORYR denizen “Dougster” with a letter that totally says the frogs are lined up and ready to roll!

    Rep. Kenny Marchant, who has apparently only been a blip on the radar here once in 2010, has an official photo that looks uncannily like the picture of Flounder that the Deltas immediately start throwing things at.

    But he thanks “Dougster” “…for contacting me regarding your desire for articles of impeachment to be brought against the President.” He continues with a heartfelt completely spontaneous original personal note:

    “When considering the issues before me, it is very important to know the views and concerns of my constituents.”

    It’s this sort of personal touch that endears Our Congress to We, the People!

    Representative Kent, er, Kenny continues:

    “There are currently investigations underway in the House, the Senate, and at the FBI… Namely, the President is under the most scrutiny and will have to face the truth of what we know to be fact in the many investigations.”

    So there you have it. Impeachment looms!

    We also get yet another trip down memory lane, with not one but two Kenyan birth certificates, and what I believe is the CDR Kerchner fantasy tale of Obama’s birth — as now told by Obama’s grandmother.

    All in all, a fine effort. Kudos, Last Great Stand. Any day now!

    That should be “QS Technologies,” the company I headed for a while. QSTVRS (QS Technologies Vital Records System) was used under a variety names by the vital records agencies in several states. If anything, QSTVRS prevents fraud, not facilitates it, through it’s strict controls and detailed activity logging features. Nothing about Xerox in that software, though.

    As long as I have been participating here I recall Doc saying he had experience in the field and that was the source of his initial interest in the issue. No surprise there and easily confirmed with Mr. Google…..if I’d cared to.

    That gets directly to one of the problems (among many) with conspiracy nuts and that is their suspicion of, or dismissal of, any person with real knowledge in the field in question. And now that all their other theories about Obama’s birth certificate have turned into fairy dust they are turning on the people who made that happen.

    Edward C Noonan California State University, Sacramento

    Judge Gary Kreep was my attorney in my CA Primary Ballot Challenge of the illegal alien called Mr. Barry Soetoro, aka BHO in 2012. Mr. Soetoro refused to answer our charges that he was ineligible to hold the office of POTUS and instead stipulated that the charges were true but requested that the case be dismissed because the Sacramento Judge agreed that Secretary of State Debra Bowen (an avid obot) did not have the duty to uphold the US Constitution……….. I noticed that UT COMMENT RULES are not being enforced. Is calling Mr. Kreep “CREEP” or a “birther” respectful? Your ridicule of my attorney offends me, and you are nothing more than cesspool bottom feeders and you should be ashamed of yourselves for having NO TRUE FACTS to back up your sorry statements.

    “‘I call upon all of you to wage a second American nonviolent revolution, to use civil disobedience, and to demand that this president leave town, to get up, to put the Quran down, to get up off his knees, and to figuratively come up with his hands out,’ he said.”

    I don’t post a lot at Free Republic, but I have recently found a great deal of personal satisfaction by adding keywords to certain articles. For example, articles about Klayman now have the keyword “ambulancechaser” attached to them. (When searching for that keyword, I discovered that it was not a unique keyword to me.) “Ohgoodlord” is the keyword now for some outrageous articles 🙂 . I’ve added the keyword “winning” on some posts, mostly meant in sarcasm.

    Janet Berger explains that there is no spoon original birth certificate, and goes on to elaborate, with one of the most awesome comments ever posted anywhere ever:

    justlw: Microfish has never surfaced

    Is that because microfish, being so very small, fall right in between the water molecules, like plinko chips, all the way to the bottom?

    Poor microfish.

    Actually, microfish surface quite often. But, as with fairies, only people with an open mind and an open heart can see them.

    Which pretty much rules out birthers.

    It looks that way. I thought the sentence was rather harsh all around. Some punishment was necessary but to this degree? I suppose it will deter future bad acts of this kind.
