Oh, found another one, not all that hard. There's some real irony in this case. If the guy had waited a little while longer the Feds would have given him the money, just like all the other parasites down on Wall St.

Oh you gotta love republican logic, the liberals have a " massive 36-billion-dollar-a-day spending spree that Nancy Pelosi and Harry Reid have embarked on. " Um, what was Bush doing for 8 years? Being financially conservative when he gave Halliburton half a trillion dollars? Did Bush make government smaller?

And if a republican had won and we would have pretty much the same crazy spending we're having now then who would get the blame?

Sounds like a great time to start a website called hypocrisy.com, but who could keep up with all the input?

The silliest part about the whole thing is the reds knew it was going to happen and set it up like a timed explosive to blow just after they lost power.

Now they sit around saying the Democrats did all of it and our moronic population believes them.

I sat there as it went down saying to friends/family that the republicans would obviously try to pin it on the democrats... and they did. They appear to be succeeding too. What a shame what our country is coming to.

The parties are more concerned about being right than what's good for the country. People enjoy screaming loser. This is what happens when your mentor Homer Simpson.

Most people are good, but the ones that suck, they really suck.

Of course the lack of ethics can be anywhere. Here's the latest one, the US Justice Department.

Justice? Yeah right.

Hi,

I don't want this to go unnoticed: former VP Dick Cheney ordered the CIA to lie to Congress, and to conceal program(s?) from Congress!

http://www.npr.org/templates/story/story.php?storyId=106533844

Say what?! One man in the executive branch orders the Central Intelligence Agency to lie to Congress. I thought this was a Constitutional Democracy, not a dictatorship?

By the way, in this case, he's running a DICK-tatorship.

There's a magazine on the shelves right now that is called "The Case for Sarah Palin." You can guess what this magazine is like.

Well in the magazine there is a brief profile that states, in their words, the reason she quit being govenor is 1) The frivolous lawsuits, and 2) Ethics.

Yeah you got to love a politician who can't handle ethics. And she has 1.2 million Facebook followers.

Do I have to say it? I see dumb people.

RE: Neil's post.

Its a shame that crappy internet censorship applies to that video, I cant watch it because I am not in the right country....... Is it on youtube/google videos.?

---

As far as Sarah Palin is concerned, only an idiot or a religious person of the same persuasion as her could possibly vote for her.

Politically she is a joke, and ethically she is retarded, what more could I add, she now has a job working for Christian Fox News, if this was not America we were talking about she would never find her way back into politics, however I suspect she will do better at the next attempt.

Thanks Neil, but all I get is "Sorry, videos are currently not available in your country", which as you can imagine is quite funny as I watch videos in my country all of the time........

When I get home I will have a look around to see if I can find a video that is not locked down to a region by bullshit.

I LOVE COLBERT.

Andy,
click the "video" tab on the main page (http://www.colbertnation.com), that should work. Just don't click "watch whole episode".
It works here in France :)
Did you here that Palin is going to have a show on Fox ? It's called "Real American Stories"... I can't wait to see what Colbert does with her show !!!

That does not work either.

Google Videos had me going for about 4 seconds while it buffered fully, then told me NO, you filthy foreigner - you cant see this video. I cant find this anywhere, I even looked on TPB and did random google searches for it - nothing.

The single most annoying thing about this is that I didnt know about it just a couple of days ago, and now I am interested, I cant watch it.

it is simply public to millions of opinionated superstar bloggers biased writings and babble. An outside source would step in to this. :roll:

like having a criminal in the family, all while everyone else is innocent. The whole group tends to be a target by a stampede of retarded humanity. it needs a mediator unbiased. The FBI is not all criminal hunting, there is many protections too.

Oops, looks like I was late to the "lets hate on the American Right Wing" thread.

For those following, please note that Aristide only posts negative information that suits his political ideology:

Quote:
Cash for kids

Prosecutors in a federal court in Scranton, Pennsylvania, said Conahan had closed a county-owned juvenile detention centre in 2002, just before signing an agreement to use a for-profit centre.

Prosecutors say Mr Ciavarella, a former juvenile court judge, then allegedly worked with Mr Conahan to ensure a constant flow of detainees.

The two men were originally charged in early 2009 with accepting money from the builder and owner of a for-profit detention centre that housed county juveniles in exchange for giving children longer, harsher sentences.

A spokeswoman for the non-profit Juvenile Law Center alleges that Mr Ciavarella gave excessively harsh sentences to 1,000-2,000 juveniles between 2003 and 2006.

Some of the children were shackled, denied lawyers, and pulled from their homes for offences which included stealing change from cars and failure to appear as witnesses.

The indictment was part of a larger probe into corruption in Luzerne County, Pennsylvania, which has so far implicated more than 20 others.


Woo-boy... When will we learn that the profit motive *must* be guided by the law? The owners of this predatory business should be behind bars, too.

And we have to hear about this from a news organization from outside the USA?

Ever wonder what brought down the global economy?

http://www.cbsnews.com/video/watch/?id= ... photovideo

And don't bother playing politics, as the story states both parts were having their love affair with deregulation.

My question - just what did these politicians think were the reasons certain regulations were created and implemented in the first place? Oh, I'm sorry I actually believed for a second that they were thinking. Silly me.
