The wonderful world of Disney

I am proud of the crappy public school that I went to and the crappy public school teachers that dedicated their life to teaching kids like me for a crappy salary. I suppose that makes me a taker too.

Look,I understand wanting less government, but to pretend the government does nothing good for people and the free market fairy dust is the answer to every problem doesn’t make sense to me.

To me the government is like an umpire at a baseball game. No one pays money to see the umpires and no one particularly like them, but they are necessary to keep order so the players (free market) can safely, effectively and legally do their jobs. If you have bad individual umpires or bad rules you make changes, but you don’t eliminate all umpires from the game and let the players call their own balls and strikes.

I am sure Walt Disney would appreciate the government funded public schools that helped prepare and educate some of those 66,000 employees He’d probably appreciate the interstates that get people the resort and the power grids, water, airports and other essential infrastructure government helps provide. Walt Disney didn’t build that! 😆

A night to remember

Well done. On the picture and the tournament. Especially the picture, that made me laugh.

A more apt title

A Denver TV station got a little confused by this picture and thought it was real.

Can you spell landside?

No Rob, Dick Morris and Karl Rove have that honor. Rove learned that even with a 300 million dollar Super PAC, it isn’t as easy to swift boat a candidate these days.

I will have some of what you are drinking if you think it is going to be 377-161. Mitt Romney isn’t going to win any of his home states.

I have never felt closer to the Korean people…

:arrow:”and some blue pill that is supposed to do what I don’t know”

I think I saw those blue pills on a TV ad. I think it was the one with two people sitting in bathtubs staring over a hillside.

This is a really, really good story. Thanks for sharing.

Election repercussions continue…

I’ve actually seen this before, althought the subtitles were different. I guess they change every even year.

Reviews of election night news coverage are in…

Being more balanced than msDNC doesn’t make you fair and blanced.

I watch Fox News regularly, I read its Web content, I know which way they slant. They have every major Republican candidate on the payroll. All of their major shows are hosted by conservatives. It’s not hard to figure out.

By the way, I don’t dislike Fox News. I watch it all the time. As in every day. Cable news is like junk food to me. I know it’s not good for me, but I can’t resist.

Let’s have a party!

What happened in DE and NV and Alaska should be a message to the Republicans to stop listening to Palin and start listening to Rove.

Although Palin did get Nikki Haley elected here in S.C., so she has that going for her. Which is nice…

Welcome to the unemployment line

Maybe so

To close out the thread, here is a story that I promise you will never see on MSNBC or Fox News.

Fox was the number one rated news channel in 2006 and 2008, two year’s when those same independents were pulling the Democrats lever.

Real Housewives of Atlanta and Jersey Shore both draw great ratings- it doesn’t make them credible programs.

Titanic won a shit ton of Oscars-that doesn’t make it a great movie.

Fox News=Republican/Tea Party

MSNBC=Democrat/progressive

You don’t think Fox covered Bush differently than Obama? You don’t find it odd that Republicans love the Fox and Dems hate it. Just like Dems love MSNBC and Repubs loath it? You don’t find it odd that some Republican candidates only speak through Fox because they call it a “friendly filter”? You think Glenn Beck and Sean Hannity are more fair and balanced than Chris Matthews and Rachel Maddow?

And you call me a Kool-Aid drinker?

Next you are going to tell me Andrew Breitbart and James O’Keefe are more fair and balanced than Michael Moore. Or that the Drudge Report is more down the middle than Huffington Post.

I think it his hilarious Republicans think that there is only a liberal bias and liberal agenda out there, ignoring the fact that the top rated cable news channel and most all of talk radio is dominated with Republican talking points.

Is Fox News considered new media? Just curious. They seem pretty main stream to me and about equally as unfair and unbalanced as the clowns as MSNBC.

If you give a democrat a cookie…

Don’t worry, I see the mess. I’ve seen it for a while.

But we both know problems in the U.S. are bigger than Obama and have been going on for years. We all know what the economy looked like in November of 2008, before Obama even took office.

People were just as mad in 2006 and 2008 when they voted the Republicans out of office. Times were supposedly chagin’ then too. All we got more of the same.

I can get on board with being pissed off and demanding change, but I am not on board with blaming it all on democrats and two years of Obama.

I’ll join you and blame Obama for spending a shit ton of money, money that went to the same cronies that got us into this mess. I’m with you there. But I’m also going to blame W. Bush for his bailout and the two unfunded wars, I will blame Clinton, to a lesser degree, for NAFTA and I will put a TON of my blame on Regan and his trickledown economics concept that marked the moment America stopped building and making things and started outsourcing jobs and resources overseas.

Maybe I should put what I am drinking down and drink whatever you are having. It must be some strong stuff.

Yeah, sort of like the crazies in militia groups following the lead of thier wingnut masters.

Another example that there are crazy people on the Right whom don’t much like opposing views:

If you are looking to start the week with some good news…

Here’s hoping when they take control they actually have some ideas. I haven’t heard much other than this so far:

It’s a little too little….

Yeah, good luck repealing health care reform. It sounds good to say during “REPEAL OBAMACARE” during a campaign, but it’s little tougher to do legally. Passing the law will keep some of them from getting re-elected, but there is no way the law gets repealed.

It sounds better to say “repeal” instead of “reform” because reform sounds too much like what Obama did to it I suppose.

With candidates like Angle, O’Donnell, Miller, Haley and Paladino I’m sure the future of the Tea Party is bright.

The Repbulicans are going to screw this thing up and get Obama re-elected in ’12. Mark my words.

Introducing the next president of the United States

Not as proud as I am that I never voted for a Bush. :mrgreen:

Random shots: Bali street scene

Bali looks amazing.

That was then…

Exactly my point, Keith. In fact, now Iran is probably more of a problem than Iraq.

It is wonderful that the world has one less crazy ruler, I am just not sure it was worth that many American lives and American treasure.

If the Iraqi people are so happy we got rid of their evil leader they should give us some of their oil.

So we won? Where is the booty?

» Posted By Kevin On 02/September/2010 @ 7:59 am

I also remember being told there was a link between Iraq and 9/11 and that there were weapons of mass destruction there.

Before you start patting Bush on the back for the surge maybe we should remember the bogus reasons we went to Iraq.

Remember who said it was the”wrong war at the wrong time and the wrong place”?

I am proud of all our men and women who served so bravely in Iraq. I’m just still not sure why there were there. Especially for 7 1/2 years. Lot of money spent and blood spilled, and I don’t feel any safer than I did prior to the unprovoked invasion of a sovereign nation.

One need look no farther than Bush’s ill fated war in Iraq as the reason the Dem’s took control and BHO was elected.

So kudos, W.
