  • Sovereign citizens; really stupid stuff, there. New Black Panthers, really? You mean all 10 of them? 100 FBI agents and this is the best they can do? I’m not saying this story is fishy, but; … the guys they arrested had gills and scales all over them, supposedly. Lots of b.s. as usual. I’ll wait for this verdict, too.

    Brandon- I often have a very dry, strong Manhattan after reading ( your ) The Roundup. Thanks for making me feel better about this ceremony. While it’s not quite as good as eating the olives… your work is much appreciated ( Must be the vermouth ). Again, thanks.

    This Prez has little to do besides write executive orders and veto crazy things. Oh, and site his library, of course. Probably looking at the site between Mayor Daley’s bookshelf and Milton Friedman’s closet.

    The art of the deal, the multiple sum game, has turned into the art of the swindle and the old minus sum game. Our political economy and social contracts look shattered. And, it is done with impunity, by the MOTU followers and those they buy off or terrorize. When 80-100 million lives, with inalienable rights [...]

    Saw that and the deal will be approved, I’m sure. Fracking must have high machinery replacement costs, etc. The price of the tar sands crude is fascinating simply because of what it can potentially be used for, I think. Oil prices goes down, the fight for Keystone tar, intensifies. Maybe it’s all muscle-flexing before 2016. But I doubt it. Just wonderin’.

    FYI-The pipeline would of raised fuel prices in the Midwestern states by up to .20 cents per gallon. That tells me it was/will be ( planned ) being refined in Louisiana, where Venezuelan heavy crude is now, for other purposes than fuel. Bitumen is used in building/construction products, etc and has a potentially much higher value than mere exhaust pipe fumes. Speculating this use is/was/will be something to look into down the road. Either the Oil Boys & Surrogate Mary have diminishing hopes for Venezuelan heavy crude coming to those Louisiana refineries in the future ( disruption/change in demand ) or Venezuela has found better paying allies, China, maybe. With the price of oil going down ( non-value added ) and the price of bitumen going up (value added ) the pipeline seems like a long play by the Oil Guys. Maybe they and their friends have future plans for Venezuela? Global power plays are always interesting.

    Happy days really are here. We don’t have to listen to 24/7 b.s. from the Democratic Party for at least 18 mos. And, then the cycle will hit us again, like a water hose, with another streaming, steaming pile. Fresh-faced liars, anyone? Not a chance with this bunch. Plenty of fertilizer, though, for us here [...]

    Battleship Mary is a dumb ass cow. Here we see her nakedly ( scary that ) and desperately trying to save face in Lousyana, throw a turd in the Greens’ punchbowl and land a cushy lobbyist job in Washington, D. C.. That’s all this is really about, imo. Look at the dolts who are tossing her this last favor, especially Manchin ( more scary that ). They’ll be talking to her the month ( Caribbean vacation? ) after the election, at a reception for the energy interests, about her new think tank ( pork/payoff ) consulting job. Just ask all the other DLCers like Blanche Lincoln, LieberBum, Righty Rev. Pryor, Tom Daschle, etc how well that pays ( yeahbaby ). Is her house in D.C. for sale? That would tell us more than the polls in her home state, btw. I’m glad she’s toast, as her pre-Katrina ( corrupt ) work on the NO levees was pretty shoddy, to say the least. Alas, the last of a dying breed; the Southern blue mongrel. They were well healed I understand but it wasn’t quite enough.

    The Democratic Coalition Party has panned for iron pyrite for decades in the South. It has “coalitioned ” itself with those blue dogs and put social welfare and public investment; ” the poor, minorities, middle class ” on the second and third tier of importance behind balanced budgets and a strong national defense posture. Historically, [...]

  • If you’re in a fatal auto accident does it really matter whether you were pushed into it, by the vehicle, ( rear wheel drive ) or pulled in to it ( front wheel drive vehicle )? Or are we all going to experience what it feels like to be crash test dummies? The Prez is going to push to the right and the Goppers are going to pull to the right and with that kind of torque will be in the ditch in short order. Then Hillary and the DLC medics will drive up, attempt to save us by giving us more of the same wrong triage medicine, and, then leave us outside the emergency room of the worst private hospital in the country. When, of course, they find out we have lousy insurance. Ah, all hale the new social safety net and the new and improved national health insurance. Without any chance for recalls, we’re heading to the wrecking yard, to boot. Enjoy the ride, as they say.

  • Oregon did quite well on Tuesday, considering. Interesting and worth pondering that marijuana legalization and GMO food labeling ( damn ) got MORE cast votes than the Senator and Governor races. Higher minimum wage in the red states poses a small-to-medium problem for both of the party elites supporting 1%ers. Living wages should be the next pressure point here, imo. The illusion of the Democratic Party making a case in The NEW South shows they need to get off the moonshine. And, on to something that doesn’t kill so many brain cells or destroy your hearing from all the dog whistles. So long to the Louisiana Bloody Mary and to anything resembling a real Gulf clean up. ( Louisiana shrimp fried in its’ own oil, anyone ? ) And, thanks for taking the time, Kevin, to dissect the problems with the UniParty and the results some of us USIANS will suffer through for the foreseeable future. At least Cliven Bundy hasn’t started the roundup quite on the West Coast yet. Something to look forward to on THE TEEVEE, I’m sure.

  • Since the Independents are aren’t in this I’m assuming SOS Brown is counting the actual cast D votes ( totals ). Measure 92 and 90 would be interesting to know, too. But 91 will win, Mr. Garcia. They don’t call it the left coast for nothing. And, most of the ” OLD FOLKS ” out here were YOUNG FARTS, once. So, there’s that, too.

  • Great article. One point; which, imo, needs to restated over and over again. ” It is not a fight between the left and the right in America, but a fight between the ups and the downs.” Molly Ivins When gov’t force is exerted against its’ citizens it is at the behest of the owners of that force. Hickox had some people, with power, on her side here and for that she should be quite grateful. But many millions of our citizens stand alone against gov’t force. And, they are largely abandoned by the same people and organizations who came to the aid of Hickox. She’s an admirable citizen but so are many who now reside in prison or graveyards in this country. And, our corrupt state and its’ power put them there. So it goes, and goes and goes…” Where are their defenders, their lawyers, their orgs. ” is a question for the media and our elected leaders. And, the answer is usually, ” no where close; count on it. “

  • The car loans are up to 34.99%. The full coverage insurance is anywhere from $200-400 a month. There’s a 2% prepayment ( early pay off of loan ) charge on the total amount financed for being responsible. The elections of 2014 will fix this and restore the banking, insurance and finance sectors of our free enterprise system to the once grand place they held in America. Please vote so that we can have this debate. You and I can have it on this website and the bankers and money lenders can have it in a secret conference room somewhere in the vicinity of Washington, D.C. God bless America.
