Obama Embarks on First Overseas Trip
ABC News - 3-31-09
When Barack Obama traveled to Europe in the summer, he was a candidate looking to shore up his foreign policy credentials and prove to the American public that he was qualified to be commander in chief


 

Spain is looking to prosecute the Bushmen for torture? Why hasn't the US Congress stepped up to the plate? Is torture investigation off the table, too?

 


 

"The Republicans released their budget counter-proposal this week. It plans to address the deficit, global warming, healthcare, energy, massive tax cuts for the rich. I'm not kidding. Also, there are no numbers in this budget. It's a budget plan without any math in it. You know, Obama should have saved that Special Olympics joke for these retards." --Bill Maher

Yet Another Palin Shenanigan. She Keeps On Giving!

 

Gov. Sarah Palin has appointed legislative aide Tim Grussendorf to the state Senate seat that opened when Juneau Democrat Kim Elton resigned. It's a controversial pick that Grussendorf's own party says it will try to block.

Palin had to pick a Democrat from Juneau for the seat under state law. But Grussendorf was a registered Republican until just weeks ago, then switched to being a Democrat to qualify for the appointment. Grussendorf now needs a majority vote of the nine Democrats in the state Senate to approve his appointment.

Subject: Did your place flood?

 

Lisa, I saw you had bad weather hit your neck of the woods. All OK?

Ben

 

Over eight inches of rain fell in SE Alabama from last Thursday to Saturday. On Saturday alone over six inches fell.

Later today another 4-6 inches is expected. The ground is super saturated.

Here's pix of my front yard I took during the storm on Sat. The ditch overflowed into my yard plus the farm behind me emptied its topsoil in the form of rivers running down both sides of my property

 

 

 

I couldn't hold the camera still due to the high winds. This is a pic of my driveway entrance I took from my front porch. The ditch is running over the driveway.

All the water is gone from my yard but the ground is very saturated. No damage!

Now here’s a story. A guy in Brazil goes spear fishing, and he accidentally gets shot in his own head with the spear. Well, they operate on the guy. He’s unconscious. They pull the spear out and he’s going to be fine. And you know the first thing he said when he came to was, “Well, that’s the last time I go spear fishing with Dick Cheney.”- David Letterman

Your Email responses to "Move on you're getting stale"

 

Palin, Bush, Cheney, Bobby Jindal & Michael Steele along with their sad stable of radio-harlequins have become their own embarrassing cartoons. They did it, they own it. Don't blame AHNC for holding up the mirror. For those who've been suckling at the Neo-Con spigot these past few years, the milk is getting a little stale. I'm sure they don't like what they see, but you can't blame the reflection on the mirror.

Hi Lisa …

I would like to respond to the e-mail from “WBarrow” (whose first name has to be Wheel).

Wheel complains that Bush, et al. are old news, getting stale, not funny anymore. It’s true that Bush and Cheney, AKA Howdy Doody and Buffalo Bob, have exited stage left. But, like those TV characters, we cannot let the real-life puppets and fools vanish without a trace. Their effects on the country were too profound and long-lasting.

Sarah Palin will not let us forget her, try as we might. And behind her comes a whole new cast of clowns – Michael Steele, Rush Limbaugh, Bobby Jindal, Mark Sanford, Rick Perry, Michelle Bachman, and others. From them we can expect years of laughs.

And, yes, there’s plenty of fodder for fun coming out of the Obama administration. And if we ever run out of material we can always turn to Bill Clinton, who never gets stale.

Wheel wants more in-depth analysis. But this is a humor site, a place to have fun. A lot of political humor is grounded in irony, absurdity, and the gray area that separates comedy and tragedy. That calls for analysis of a different kind.

After all, what could be more ironic or absurd than the notion that in a “free society” one president is impeached for getting his willy waxed while his successor – who starts a preemptive war, spies on US citizens, tortures and kills people, watches a major American city drown, and wrecks the economy – gets a pass? That is comedy. And tragedy.

For in-depth analysis, there are plenty of other sites for Wheel to turn to, depending on how he wants the analysis to turn out. Maybe he can turn to Fox News, where other humorless complainers turn out their version of analysis 24/7.

An analysis of the government’s takeover of ‘everything’ would be good, but where to start? I think we should start with how the government took over our rights to privacy, peaceable assembly, free speech, due process, and more, all in the name of keeping us safe.

Now we don’t have to worry about some bearded crackpot in the mountains of Afghanistan depriving us of life, liberty, and happiness … no, in seven short years he got the US government to do those things for him. Hilarious.

An analysis of government health care would indeed be a good thing. Without government health care, Dick Cheney would have been a dead man a decade ago. While we’re at it, let's add military medicine. We can find out how all those medics and corpsmen manage to keep all those half-dead American kids alive … and why they need to in the first place. Then add the VA, where we try to put broken bodies together amid the rubble and filth of buildings we don’t maintain. The problem is not the professionals, it’s the politicians.

Wheel is obviously all for capitalism and I am too. But the point of capitalism is to leverage private capital to create economic value. So … where did all the private capital go? It has dried up. And the government did not take it away.

Greedy capitalists and politicians imploded the con game they have been running for at least the last 10 years. They were insatiable; they became so voracious they ate the seed corn. Now we are all in for a little bit of economic famine. Sadly, for many people, that famine will be real, not metaphorical.

The only capital left now is that which “the full faith and credit” of the government can provide. Here’s hoping we can leverage that capital to once again create economic value and produce our way out of this mess.

Capitalism is what you’re trying to practice with AHNC. To help, I am sending you some capital via PayPal. To Wheel, I am sending a hearty Scalia salute.

Hang in there,

Rick

What I think is the guy writing about "stale" is an old Bush Staffer!
 
 As to the Obama bailout it's all bad. How many ways can you spell greed, pay no or little taxes etc.
Shit, the old stale guys is what got us into this mess in the first place.

Lisa,


You're doing just fine!

I'm sure that "WBarrow" and his anti-government cohorts would love for all of us to concentrate solely
on the difficult tasks that lie ahead for Obama and consequently blame him for this mess.

However, the Neocon crowd and their corporate criminal masters haven't gone anywhere. Unfortunately,
they are still very much with us and will be for the foreseeable future. The public needs to be constantly
reminded that we are just now emerging from an eight-year economic holocaust caused mainly by Republicans.
This situation is obviously not Obama's fault and it will take months if not years to undo the damage.

Keep telling it like it is, girlfriend! Bush, Cheney and their ilk were not and are not patriots. They are traitors.
Don't let them rewrite history. The Neocons are no friends of the poor and middle-class. They have been and
still are on a deliberate course to destroy the middle-class if we allow them to get away with it. Lisa, keep up
the good work raising the spirits of the already enlightened. And who knows? Just maybe you have actually
convinced a dittohead or two along the way to cross over into the light, as well. Obama's not the only one
with a difficult task!

-Ron

Lisa,
The person who advocates this is likely a "ringer for a right winger". The statement that you are getting stale tells me that this bozo doesn't visit your site to see the humor, but rather would like to see more Clinton and liberal bashing. (talk about stale!) Your response to him was right on target. If you are not getting fresh cash, and the donations levels are dropping, it is likely because of the horrible effects of the Bush and Republicans mistakes of the past 8 yrs. It is taking a heavy toll on all of us. I cannot donate until my taxes are figured, and I cannot keep my kids in college next year if this decline continues. I think fresh material should focus on idiots like Boehner and McConnell, and the sludgemeisters in the Republican party and Hate radio/TV.
Stay the course, Lisa! (pardon the bushistic phrase) You still have one of the best sites available, and almost all sites are in financial trouble.

David

Lisa,

IF ONLY Bush, Cheney and Palin WERE old news--we could all breath a sigh of relief.

I think we have only seen just the very top tip of the iceberg regarding their greed, corruption, and complete disregard for our Constitution and all that is just and moral.

Unfortunately, the GOP will continue to "revise" history so we will never get the complete truth.

Keep up the good work.

Cindy

To Help You Deflate Photo

 

 

In this photo released Tuesday, March 31, 2009, by the Newark (Ohio) Police Department, a motorized bar stool is shown. Police in Newark, 30 miles east of Columbus, say when they responded to a report of a crash with injuries on March 4 2009, they found a man who had wrecked a bar stool powered by a deconstructed lawn mower. Police say Kile Wygle, 28 was charged with operating a vehicle while intoxicated after he told an officer at the hospital that he had consumed 15 beers. Wygle told police his motorized bar stool can go up to 38 mph. AHNC wonders how many miles per gallon this baby gets!
