I wonder Tucker and your Mom, do you think your opinion would be different if you had Parkinsons. Think a little harder maybe. Sometimes I say really obvious stuff on this blog that we all know anyway. But its meant as an education for the right wingers who do not get a lot of the simple stuff that most lefties take for granted and don't mention cause everyone gets it right. Wrong!! Tucker go back to school.

Tucker Carlson is still on TV? Thank god I only watch news on LINK-TV & Free Speech TV! They're scraping the bottom of the barrel, if Tucker Carlson is still on TV. Is Bill O'Reilly still on TV???
It is important, though, for Brad & mediamatter's to track these creeps anyway. But, thank you for doing so FOR me, while I watch LINK-TV & FSTV! Seriously, I still want to know that they are still out there, spreading lies and disinformation. If you don't track them, all the dummys won't know they're lying to them. Hopefully, you'll get through to some of the idiots and lamebrains and numbskulls.

I just don't get it...
Why the Righteous Righties (aka Republicans) have taken upon themselves to declare why it is up to them to define what IS is, in this debate over what life IS.
Is it OK to play God and unite the sperm and egg by the hand of man under the guise of fertility clinics...
Is it OK to play God and discard thousands of unused embryos because the first go around at playing God went too well...
Can't people learn that the greatest gift to life is the right to live...
That upon my death, I shall give life through organ donation so as to grant others that right to a quality life they so deserve.
Can't embryo donation follow suit...

YOUR STOLEN NATION…
EXIT POLLS DON’T LIE – GET EDUCATED – ALERT THE MEDIA!
Rove has telegraphed his punch, and now it’s up to all of us to call BULLSHIT on his BULLSHIT.
Speaking on a recent NPR interview, Rove stated that he actually sees upward of 36 different polls – many of which predict a GOP victory in the coming elections.
He’s simply lying.
He’s lying to create a mindset of doubt – in order to better enable the theft of the election through means other than the ballot box. The GOP has effectively hijacked America. Bush did not win the election in 2004. Exit polls don’t lie…but Rove does.
Revisit the exit polling data from 2004 and share it with others:
Call it to the attention of the media. Let the media know that we WILL NOT TOLERATE another stolen election, nor will we tolerate their complicity in disparaging the validity of Exit Polling as a valuable check against election fraud.
CNN’s Jeff Greenfield was interviewed about the forthcoming elections, and his parting comment at the end of the segment was what would have appeared to be an off-handed disparaging remark about the reliability of Exit Polls.
Greenfield was/is shilling for Rove – and this was a TALKING POINT ordered up by Rove. “Exit Polling” had not been part of the prior discussion, but was something that he slipped in at the end of the segment – as if ordered to do so.
DON’T LET THEM SWIFTBOAT “EXIT POLLING”
Learn about the company Rove has hired to conduct and report fraudulent exit poll results – which will stand in sharp contrast to all other exit polls:
The GOP has employed a firm called Penn, Schoen, & Berland to skew exit poll results in the past in order to achieve their own political ends. They are on Rove’s payroll:
Electoral Fraud Is the First Step on the Road to Tyranny
November 2, 2004: Overcoming a six point exit-poll advantage by Senator John Kerry, George Bush is re-elected President. Several statisticians have calculated the probability of this anomaly as one in a million --- in effect, impossible.

The idea is to create confusing ideas on purpose to deflect "reality based" debate. Ignore the actual, reality based destruction of our constitution and the bill of rights!
Concentrate on Gambling, steroids, porno, flag burning, embryos, commandments, streaking, nudity, tits, Clintons, Condits, Fords, Harts, Kennedys, and even Carters with lust in their hearts.
Forget 655,000 innocent men, women, and children in Iraq fighting against the occupation of THEIR homeland.
It's about the money, HONEY! The stock market pyramid scheme, BABY!
Now GET OVER IT!

Here is an article about Nancy Pelosi's appearance on 60 minutes.

Pelosi: 'Impeachment is off the table'
WASHINGTON, Oct. 22 (UPI) --- U.S. House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., has pledged not to pursue impeachment of President George W. Bush if Democrats win the November election.
"Impeachment is off the table," said Pelosi in an interview aired Sunday on CBS "60 Minutes."
Asked if that was a pledge, Pelosi said it was.
"Yes, it is a pledge," she said. "Of course it is."
Pelosi called impeachment "a waste of time," and suggested Republicans --- who have controlled the House for 12 years --- would make political hay out of it if Democrats tried to impeach Bush.
"Wouldn't they just love it if we came in and our record as Democrats coming forth after 12 years is to talk about George Bush and Dick Cheney? This election is about them. This is a referendum on them. Making them lame ducks is good enough for me."
- - - - - -
I've carried an "IMPEACH BUSH" sign over 400 miles through the streets of what I am to believe is the state that most supports the Bush agenda. I've stood at intersections for many hours more, (probably 200 hours), with that sign.
I very much liked Pelosi's appearance on 60 minutes because she refused to back away from many harsh criticisms of Bush as have the Dixie Chicks.
I may still carry my sign due to the fact that if I lit myself on fire, nobody would ever know I existed, however, lame ducks is good enough for me as well!
Lame ducks and limp dicks.

It is interesting that several days have been spent by the Republicans on Michael J Fox, effectively vilifying him as a partisan (which he isn't) and then launching into a tirade about morality. Tucker's moral sense has been assaulted. (Did somebody finally grab him by the throat and strip away that stupid bow-tie?) The the seque into the moral value of stem cells. I think it is interesting Tucker thought the "race of itty bitty people" remark was the best explanation for Republicans on the issue. I knew they could be stupid, but I had no idea that it took a 3rd grader's metaphor to get through to them.
I want Pelosi to sponsor lots of investigations and stoke and slowly, methodically expose how Republicans and Conservatives are synonymous with corporations, corruption and class-warfare---and pedophilia too-----by then everyone will want to impeach Bush.

President Bush said Friday the United States does not torture prisoners, commenting after Vice President Dick Cheney embraced the suggestion that a dunk in water might be useful to get terrorist suspects to talk.
Waterboarding is a type of torture used in coercive interrogations or for punishment. The modern form of the practice simulates drowning and produces a severe gag reflex, making the subject believe his or her death is imminent while ideally not causing permanent physical damage.
The word torture is commonly used to mean the infliction of pain to break the will of the victim or victims. Any act by which severe pain, whether physical or psychological, is intentionally inflicted on a person as a means of intimidation, deterrence, revenge, punishment, sadism, information gathering, or to obtain false confessions for propaganda or political purposes may be called torture.
The term "Orwellian" usually refers to one or more of the following:
Manipulation of language for political ends. Most significantly by introducing to words meanings in opposition to their denotative meanings.
Invasion by the state of personal privacy, whether physically or by means of surveillance.
The total control of daily life by the state, as in a "Big Brother" society.
Active encouragement by the state of "doublethink," whereby the population must learn to embrace inconsistent concepts without dissent.
The denial or rewriting of past events.

The real root of all this evil is money, but I’ll take that up in a moment.
First consider who created these 'itty-bitty' people to begin with--evil women who were willing to kill large numbers of their own children just to have one of them be born. Of course I'm talking about in-vitro fertilization. That is what is creating the race of itty-bitty people.
The researchers who want to use some of these itty-bitty people did NOT create them. They just want to save these itty-bitty people from the evil ones who would kill them outright, never allowing any of their sacred DNA to find expression anywhere in this finite universe of carbon atoms bumping around into other carbon atoms.
The race of 'itty-bitty people' involved are the embryos in little plastic vials, on the ends of strings, suspended in vats of liquid nitrogen.
Why is it that these 'people' have fewer rights than those other embryos that are inside of women who don't want them? Why is it ok to dump out a vat of these poor unborn infants, but it is a heinous crime for a woman to end the 'life' of just one of them via an early abortion or a "morning-after" pill? If life begins at conception, then pulling little vials out of the nitrogen and tossing them in the trash is killing a human being.
If it is a murder to scrape a snowflake off the side of the wall of a uterus, why is it not a murder to thaw out a frozen embryo? Is it that scraping is inhumane, but thawing is not? If it's not immoral to thaw an embryo out of liquid nitrogen and throw it away, then perhaps there should be a method of abortion that involved taking the live embryo out of the mother and then quick-freezing it, while it is still viable and 'living'. This way, it wouldn't be an abortion really--just converting the pregnancy into a 'snowflake baby'. Just putting the pregnancy on hold.
Shouldn't the mother who started the process of in-vitro fertilization be responsible for her snowflake children? Either she should be forced to have each and every one of these embryos implanted in her, or she should be forced to personally remove and thaw, and thereby kill, her own unborn children. And the local prosecutor should be notified so as to be ready to handcuff her and take her away.
How do the employees of fertility clinics feel about having to terminate hundreds of snowflake-lives, in order for a few, rich infertile parents to be able to have one of them as a healthy infant? Surely no one except the parents of these snowflake people should have to have the job of terminating these sacred lives. Does anyone pray over them? Could it not at least be done in large feel-good churches? The fog from the liquid nitrogen would look nice flowing down over the altar, I think. Maybe special group-services--special snowflake funerals. There could be an industry of snowflake caskets, or snowflake cremations, with snowflake urns. The parents should at least be forced to show up and take over responsibility for their snowflake ashes, surely.
How can Bush stand in a room full of 'snowflake babies' and celebrate their lives, without someone pointing out that for every such living baby, many more snowflakes are out there, who have been coldly murdered?
Why are these 'snowflake' mothers not vilified and arrested for having killed so many MORE unborn infants than have women who have had even several abortions?
If the Republicans are the party of "Life", surely it is better for these itty-bitty snowflake people to have lives of some kind, however short, and for a few of their sacred cells to go on living in someone else, to cure Parkinson's Disease. So long as that person is a rich Republican.
But no, it's not about "life". It's about money.
As always, the Republicans twist everything around so as to be able to champion the position of whoever has the most money. In this case, they dare not go up against in-vitro fertilization as being evil, because it's a very expensive process that can only be afforded by the kinds of very rich people who are worried about having to pay estate taxes. Very rich people often cannot get pregnant, and want in-vitro fertilization. If you are rich, you should be able to flush as many dozens of human lives down the toilet as is necessary in order to have just one thawed-out, live infant.
So Republicans can't be against THAT.
However, if you are poor, you should be forced to carry your unwanted infant to term, just in case some rich person might want the option of adopting it--they probably won't, but since the real purpose of all of our lives is to serve the very richest among us, we therefore need as a society to have a well-stocked Walmart Adoption Agency somewhere full of healthy babies from poor liberal families for the very rich to be able to choose from. Hell, it's even in the Bible. The poor parents of Moses put him in a little boat and sent him down the Nile.
Follow the money. It's always about the money, when it comes to what the Republicans are for or against. The Republicans are all about serving the very richest people among us, using whatever means is most expedient, so as to be able to dupe as many people as possible into supporting them. If they can't dupe enough people to get their way, they will just have to buy some election machine companies so as to be able to disenfranchise enough voters, and buy enough television networks so as to be able to say that it is not happening, maybe kill a few like Paul Wellstone, etc. Get rid of the best candidates at the primaries before they get a chance, like Howard Dean, who supposedly 'screamed' but who was just trying to make himself heard over a noise-cancelling microphone. The news media knew that, but went along.
Whatever it takes. These are the stakes. They will do whatever it takes.
Bumper sticker of the day:
Republican Elephant == $ == Schwastika
Vote while you still can.
Election Fraud is not about left versus right--it's about democracy versus tyranny.

Is that really what he said? Wow!
When they speak in such terms there is obviously no way to reason with them. Just walk away from the morons, just walk away.

You're absolutely right. Elizabeth Smart mattered, because her parents had money. Hannity and the others had to drill home the point that her kidnapping was serious and others didn't count!

Tucker Carlson has been thrust upon us as a moderate. Bull#*!!*%! He has always been on the side of the powers that be. For him to also be on the attack against Michael J Fox, surprises me not. I wonder if he was at the White House gathering where talk hosts were invited, (Liberal Talk hosts were not invited). I find the timing interesting for these attacks on Michael, considering that summit. What more can I add? The mean spirited actions of these thugs is well know, and here is just another example. In this light I present my latest cartoon, " The Spin Monster Strikes".
