    Look over there… conservative Republicans! I’m gobsmacked… really! could never have imagined that…

    Now, lets get real and talk about which political party has turned harder to the right from its historic principles. That would be the Democrats, and this former Democrat will not be triangulated by LOTE rhetoric that has allowed for the Obama WH to give us a Republican health care plan, more chaos in the Middle East and an absolute shredding of the Constitution while performing a cranial/rectal inversion with the Pentagon and Wall Street.

    But those damn republicans… grrrrrrrr….

  • Obamacare IS the GOP plan, Jon…

  • Obama’s administration has been cruel and vindictive. The man should be in jail for for many things, among them torture, murder and treason.

    Ah, but he’ll be golfing tomorrow, dontcha know?!

    Sick fucking smug bastard…

  • “So, shouldn’t Obama be pardoning tens or even hundreds of thousands people in and out of prison?”

    YES!

    Is it really all about the optics for? How obtuse can you get, mulp, in your endless attempts to get Obama off the hoof for his wretched administration and endless failures?

    meh…

  • yeah well.. when I was singing Pelléas in Switzerland and got sick, it cost me nothing to be treated. Nothing. So much for its “high costs.” Privatized or not, it works to benefit the populace not the insurers. Obamacare, like its namesake, is a fraud of the greatest magnitude and the failure of firedoglake to take a LOUD and PROUD stand against his re-election gives you few to no creds for dissembling after the fact. I’ve noticed that of late your columns have not been fluffing the Democrats, yet I’m sure you’ll get around to that as the elections draw nearer. That you fail to mention, in an obvious and easy criticism, that this boondoggle to the death-by-spreadsheet insurers resulted from UNANIMOUS DEMOCRATIC PARTY SUPPORT, is noted.

  • There are dissenting voices regarding the true nature of these protests. What do you think about this: http://www.moonofalabama.org/2014/09/the-ned-hong-kong-riots.html

    “Who really “decided to light this”? To me the protests, and the “western” reporting about it, have the distinct smell not of tear gas but of some expensive Color Revolution perfume of “western” origin.

    So lets look up the usual source of such exquisite fragrance. The 2012 annual report of the U.S. government financed National Endowment of Democracy, aka the CCA – Central Color-Revolution Agency, includes three grants for Hong Kong one of which is new for 2012 and not mentioned in earlier annual reports:

    National Democratic Institute for International Affairs – $460,000

    To foster awareness regarding Hong Kong’s political institutions and constitutional reform process and to develop the capacity of citizens – particularly university students – to more effectively participate in the public debate on political reform, NDI will work with civil society organizations on parliamentary monitoring, a survey, and development of an Internet portal, allowing students and citizens to explore possible reforms leading to universal suffrage.

    So the U.S. government in 2012 (2013 numbers are not yet available) hands over nearly half a million to “develop the capacity” of “university students” related to the issue of “universal suffrage” in the election of Hong Kong’s chief executive.

    Two years after the money starts to flow from the U.S. government university students in Hong Kong provoke street riots with demands exactly on the issue the U.S. government money wanted to highlight.

    That is just some curious coincidence – right?

    PS (1): There is no reason to believe that a majority of the people in Hong Kong are supporting the U.S. induced demands of the “students”. Hong Kong has some 7 million inhabitants. Ten to twenty thousands protesting amounts to some rather marginal 0.2% of the population.”

    Don’t shoot the messenger, I’m just asking…

  • Thank god there are no more conservative democrats and that the party base has the backs of party leaders. Maybe next time there is a democratic administration we can fix the problem while singing kumbaya at gay weddings. Oh wait…

    ps- this gay man has zero desire to be married (you’ll recall that back when we were marching for health rights re: AIDS the only people talking about gay marriage – and the right to serve openly in the military – were log cabin Republicans led by the loathsome Andrew Sullivan) nor do I believe that who I sleep with is a political choice.

  • yeah well… would you shoot to kill?

    Well, there are still a lot of civilian African Americans to shoot down in the streets, now that the military has control over local police departments too. TPTB certainly are aware of the public’s disgust with all that money being spent on foreign objectives and will be happy to repatriate that money to be used – by way of MRAPS and other expensive military equipment – against home grown terrorists of their creation.

    Maybe after he’s out of office the terrorist Obama bin Golfin’ will be at the top of the Pentagons list. Could be, huh? The war-lords are famous for using anyone they can for their deadly bloodlust and then dispatching them without so much as one last reach around.

  • there is much speculation that Holder will return to his criminal ways at his previous law firm. Maybe. Maybe he’ll end up at the Fed. Imagine what he could accomplish for his soon-to-be former boss’s savvy businessmen friends, especially since the Fed will be required to bail out the thieving lot of them again anon.

    Apologies for posting this again, but maybe the newest boogeyman will the president something to restore public approval:

    BREAKING NEWS – Newest Terror Overlord Named

    Government officials have released the name of the newest terror-master responsible for much of the carnage against everything that is good in the world: Obama bin Golfin’

    Like his fellow death merchants, Obama bin Golfin’ is a charismatic, often soft spoken type who hides his cruel nature and psychopathic narcissism behind a cool demeanor served to the public through masterful propaganda techniques. Photos reveal a tall and handsome man who, nevertheless, avoids the spotlight except in highly controlled appearances. He rarely does interviews except with those who won’t question his motives and, more often than not, refuses the Q/A format of public press conferences. Mr. bin Golfin’ has amassed a large cadre of cult-like sycophants around the globe who are willing to do his deadly dirty work as to ensure their supreme leader’s hands are not sullied. Indeed, his evil intentions have been so whitewashed as to have allowed credulous international peace organizations to bestow upon him their highest honors before his murderous instincts were more commonly known. Authorities are concerned that the public, distracted and mesmerized by consumerism, social media and popular anti-culture, cannot see the truth and have assumed a dangerous complacency.

    With nuclear weapons suspected to be at his fingertips, Obama bin Golfin’s declared war against democracy and moral decency threatens the globe and we are admonished (if you see something say something) to take heed, lest an international confrontation of ghastly proportion results.

  • The answer to your headline’s question is easy, Jon.

    It’s because the Democratic base feels better represented by their party….

    Define conservative please?

    I have many self-defined “liberal” friends (including many fellow gay friends) who think Wall Street is just fine, have no issues with Obama’s drone-murdering innocent civilians, including children or his lock-step support of Israels deadly apartheid, think throwing billions at the neo-nazi regime in the Ukraine is the right thing to do and are all for more war in Iraq and Syria. And they will all be voting for ex GOP in the closet Charlie Crist for governor in FL. Is Rick Scott horrid? Of course. But how much better will “Chain gang Charlie” be?

    Never mind that Obama described himself as a Republican, didn’t he?

    You do not persuade, Mr. Walker.

    Fuck ‘em all, indeed… But LOVE me some wendydavis!!!! Apologies for all my silence of late but I couldn’t resist commenting on this compelling cri de coeur . I thought you might like to know that John Lewis has called for martial law, a slippery slope to say the least ( http://thinkprogress.org/justice/2014/08/14/3471313/john-lewis-ferguson-martial-law/ ).
