Poppy Bush

What needs to be "phased out" is the retirement plans, and medical coverage of the millionaires who retire from politics. His father will live to be 110 with the Cadillac insurance he has, plus the generous pension from TAXPAYERS. Why are we saddled paying pensions, plus yearly increases to millionaires, who lined their pockets screwing taxpayers during their terms? The worst president EVER (W) now pgets $400,000 a year, plus a million more for office expenses, He gives speeches, which are closed to journalists, with fees of up to $250,000. Even bland, boring Laura charges $50,000 a speech, plus private jet travel expenses. I worked 25 years at the same company, my pension is $400 a month, no healthcoverage. No raises, it will be the same for the rest of my life. I am glad to get it, but why do these crooks retire in luxury, after not even working a full week, going on vacations paid for by lobbyists. Rember Trent Lott? He said he could not remember EVER paying for his own lunch while he was in office!!

Very true

We sat in our air raid shelter, listening to the planes drone overhead, the sirens screaming, and bombs whistling down. Terrifying. Carried gas masks to school. I remember stopping at the corner of our road after school wondering what I would do if I turned the corner, and our house was gone, bombed like so many others. Had an aunt and uncle with three sons, who were "bombed out" of their home three times, lost everything. The Red Cross helped them collect furniture, clothing and found them a place to live each time. My aunt died at 46 from cancer. I still think it was from the stress.

$carah is making an appearance at a Christian school in Williston, ND on Monday. I wonder how much she is being paid? On a very sad note, not included in the police report, but written about by attendees at that brawl. Bristol's young son was there, running around drinking beer from cups left unattended. Nobody was watching him they said. The police should have taken him into protective custody and called his father (not one of the trial daddies Bristol regularly has) Instead, he was allowed to ride home in a stetch Humvee (yees, it was a Humvee!!) with a group of angry, drugged up drunks spewing foul language. Family values - Palin style. Todd has clout up there, since many of the police are "customers" at his prostitution bidness.

The Alaskan blog is IMMORAL MINORITY. It was reported that $carah was trying to buy cell phones, to make sure the videos were deleted. The saddest part of all? Bristol's 6 year old son Tripp was there, seeing his mother punching people, and he even got blood on his shirt. It was reported that he was terrified.

This should be sent to EVERY Sunday gop proaganda talk show, where the gop has an open mike to spread false information. It should have a runner at the bottom of the screen, stating which companies are contributing to whomever is yakking. Like little Johnny Mac, how much does he receive from the weapons industries that he needs to start more wars? How much did Turtle McConnell get from the Koch brothers to block EVERYTHING the President has tried to do?

Wasn't it rumored that Reagan had Alzheimers while in office? Remember his trips to the helicopter, cupping his ears so as to let them know he could not hear the questions? A little trick to avoid having him make a gaffe that would expose the myth. I am wondering if Dubya has the same problem, he is strangely absent while all his cabinet have been on TV defending their wars.

"We, the People"should sue these lazy representatives. They were elected to do a job, which they do not do. All they have done since President Obama was ELECTED by the citizens, is disrupt, waste time. Why should taxpayers be saddled with their medical coverage and pension plan? DEFUND these millionaires, let them pay their own expenses. If not for us, Cheney would have croaked long ago, instead of being all over the TV insulting the President. His snarling face is sickening.

Me too.

My son could not afford the $600 to keep his medical insurance effective while layed off from his job. He kept thinking he would be called back to work. Then he got so sick, he was afraid to go to the doctor because he said "They will send me for all types of tests, and I'll be in debt forever" Unable to keep food down, he tried baby food. Eventually he died, my doctor said it was malnutrition the autopsy missed something. Nothing can fill the space left in my heart, at the dinner table at Thanksgiving and Christmas. Nothing. He was my youngest.

Urinal cakes

This is the gathering of the frat boys who have urinal cakes with President Obama's face on them. I would like to know who thought of this, ordered them and paid for them? Ralphie Reed? Rancid Pieface? This should be investigated.

John McCain

I have pondered this question, and decided either they think he is "photogenic" (he is not) or Bob Schieffer thinks having lumpy old Johnny on makes HIM look young and vibrant (it does not) Apart from that, I got nothin'.
