E.J. Dionne Is Only Half-Right

Finally, someone in the MSM noticed the very perceptive analysis “What’s the Matter with Connecticut?” that details how the Democrats do well in certain wealthy areas (e.g. Montgomery County, MD., suburban Los Angeles, suburban Los Angeles, Seattle etc.) while Republicans are still the party of the rich. But E.J. Dionne’s analysis of why Kerry could not tap into this is just wrong. For those who might still harbor the notion that Democrats are now the party of elites while Republicans represent the middle-class “heartland” it should be noted that Bush beat Kerry 56%-43% among voters making $50,000 or more annually. At the same time “Bush won 63 percent of the votes cast by Americans in households earning over $200,000 a … Continue reading

Who Shall Cast the First Stone?

With all the recent post on the recent decisions by a state, to interfere in the abortion ruling of Roe v. Wade, I would like to give my two cents. I call on any right wing fool to answer a couple of questions for me. If you consider abortion to be murder, what could you do, to punish that woman, if it was outlawed? Do you plan have these woman these murderers, as you label them, tried and executed? If a woman goes to have an abortion, do you think she is guilty then of an act that is pre-meditated? Shall you kill a woman for this? If you do, you no longer promote pro-life!! How shall you answer to … Continue reading

Plaquemines Parish Sues Feds Over Trash Contracts

The DHS and FEMA are the subject of a lawsuit. The Plaquemines Parish government has taken the DHS to task for debris removal practices. The Plaquemines Parish government has sued the U.S. Homeland Security Department over its refusal to provide FEMA contracts related to debris removal and other services after Hurricanes Katrina and Rita. Underlying the lawsuit is a claim by parish officials that the Federal Emergency Management Agency is paying far more for debris removal than parish contractors doing the same work. Imagine that, FEMA Wasting money! Can these idiots get anything right?

Stacey Tallitsch: The Bare Naked Truth On The Religious Right

Our future Louisiana Congressman, Stacey Tallistch, has a new book out — Bare Naked Truth: On the Religious Right. Stacey Tallitsch is the Democratic Candidate running in Louisiana’s 1st District against USS GOP Cabin Boy, Bobby Jindal. Jindal ran against Gov. Blanco in the last election, and has now thrown his name in the hat again. Katrinacrats and Ritacrats need to watch this one. Support the man who will lead us, and not just agree to say yes to the powers that be!

More Evidence Democrats Were Out-Hustled in 2004

In a recent post at EDM, David Gopoian examines Kerry’s performance in swing states and comes up with some interesting numbers. He examines different regions in the swing states and shows Kerry’s performance in those different regions compared with the Expected Democratic Vote (EDV) in those areas of the swing states. The swing states in question are: Colorado, Florida, Iowa, Maine, Michigan, Minnesota, Missouri, Nevada, New Hampshire, New Mexico, Ohio, Oregon, Pennsylvania, Washington, and Wisconsin. Looking at the statistics, it’s clear to me that the GOP just outhustled the Democrats in 2004. Specifically, Bush did better in already GOP regions than Kerry did in some Democratic regions. In only two regions-Tampa Bay Region in Florida and NE and SE Missouri- … Continue reading

Stacey Tallitsch: Katrinacrat and Proud of It

For those of you who have followed the progress that I have made since the storms, since my seeing the light, you may remember my friend Stacey Tallitsch, who has chosen to face the cabin boy of the USS GOP. Well, it seems as though he may soon be back home in Louisiana. It’s time to get busy, and take the fight to the enemy. Bobby Jindal — you are gonna be served your eviction! Time to take out the trash. Red state? Oh we will see about that. As far as Jindal’s run against Gov. Blanco goes, I would rather have Bugs Bunny voted in. Maybe your hero, Dick “Elmer Fudd” Cheney, can give you a job after “We … Continue reading

Trying to Make Sense of Cheney’s Hunting Accident

The information released about Harry Whittington’s condition and complications is apalling on the surface. Going a little deeper between the lines brings up some questions and a few correlations that the average reader would miss. I have worked on a “step down unit” like the one Whittington was transferred to for six years. In a hospital with a state-of -the-art heart center and the cardiologists to make it probably the best place to go in Denver metro if you are having chest pain*. I also have hunted, birds and large game. My analysis of the care and status of Mr. Whittington is based on the disclosed information and my experience. Continue reading

Eviction: 1000’s of Katrina Victims Out on the Street

In another twisted action by FEMA, about 12,000 families were sent packing out of hotels today. About 12,000 families made homeless by last year’s hurricanes began checking out of their federally funded hotel rooms around the country Monday after a federal judge let FEMA stop paying directly for their stays. You don’t have to be a rocket scientist, to figure out that if FEMA is involved, it’s gonna be late, and it will not be enough to do the job.
