Great band JA. Starship,kinda cr@ppy.
Jack Casady what a great bass player. And Grace Slick, reoor. And I’m not even a Baby Boomer, thank God. Long live Gen X.
Peace out and Happy New Year.
monkeychamp commented on the diary post “The Interview” for Christmas: Where is the Inquisition When We Need It? by Ohio Barbarian.
Great post. I am a Christian and I am offended by the promoted assassination of this guy by Hollywood. Used to be a movie had the good sense to cover themselves a little bit by switching up the symbology and letting us know what the message was by a wink and a nod – al [...]
monkeychamp commented on the blog post Most Aren’t Going to Use the Insurance Exchanges Correctly
I know several self-employed people who – because they are Repub and watch Fox News – did not even bother to check out the ACA exchanges. They re-upped on over-priced insurance. I DO blame them for this.
monkeychamp commented on the blog post Rahm Emanuel Facing Questions Over Campaign Donations From Pension Fund Managers
Chicago ‘burbs here.
If this could get Rahm voted out then great. It’s possible, he’s not well liked in Chicago. We don’t need guys like him in office.
Speaking of pension funds, PIMCO the formerly biggest bond fund in the world, paid Bill “The Bond King” Gross and Mohammed El-Erian 290 mil and 230 for bonuses in 2013. Both have left the fund company. Bill was already a billionaire. CNBC has shills justifying this of course.
For my money, it’s hard to see what economic value a bond fund manager creates. But hey, what do I know.
monkeychamp commented on the blog post Are the 2014 Elections a Referendum on Barack Obama?
i think you’ve got that right. Didn’t Dubya have a midterm where R’s weren’t even letting people know their party affiliation? BO is not popular. People aren’t buying his message that things are goodgetting better. (median incomes, etc).
The Senate states up for grabs are hardly blue anyway. Alaska? Louisiana? WV?
There are very good, logical reasons why D’s are losing. And they’re not “throwing” the election as part of some conspiracy theory.
I hope the R’s win, I can’t wait to see what they’ll do. And I also hope the D’s stop the 60 votes to do anything nonsense. Send BO their bills, they’ll over-reach.
monkeychamp commented on the blog post Upcoming Republican Sweep May Offer Obama Second Chance For ‘Grand Bargain’
I can’t wait to see what the new Repub majority is going to do. Will be vastly more entertaining (i think) than the last few years.
monkeychamp commented on the diary post Paul Krugman Still Believes That “teh debt” Can Be a Problem for the U.S. by letsgetitdone.
Wow, you put a lot of words into Krugman’s mouth. He’s not “implying” most of what you’re accusing him of. Weird spin on Krugman’s piece.
I have a Microsoft Surface Pro 2 running windows 8.1. There was some annoyance with it, but overall, I like it. It makes sense to have touchscreen capability on a laptop, tablet or phone. I’ve used macs(some), mainframes, windows since 3.0, Unix and Linux. I’ll take Windows 8.1 or 7 over all that for home [...]
monkeychamp commented on the blog post Democrats Are Practically Begging for Obama to Be Impeached
Plenty of R’s want impeachment & will try if they can. The Nuts on the Right, WND.com, etc, are calling for it all the time.
Let the Dems raise some ca$h and gin up some interest in voting. Scalise knew if he said it was off the table – like a rational congressman would have said – he’d be pilloried by his tea bagger supporters.
Yawn. Why are we even discussing 2016 Pres. polls? Waste of time.
I was “intrigued” enough to take a look inside the book on Amazon. It looks like he and his fellow supply-side hucksters have gathered some “facts” on taxation at the State level, and use these nuggets to push their usual bullsh!t. I’d like to read the book after I get thru Piketty’s, but i won’t [...]
In a weird way, it’s hilarious. I love “get Castro” CIA high jinks.
monkeychamp commented on the blog post Billionaire Ken Langone Who Funded Elliot Spitzer Takedown Operation Claims Liberals Are Like Hitler
The source article, and Langone were speaking of Populism in the Democratic party AND the GOP.
Langone is a disgrace though. He hinted at him and his 1% Catholic buddies pulling funding for St. Patrick’s cathedral.
monkeychamp commented on the diary post Why Amazon’s Collaboration with the CIA Is So Ominous — and Vulnerable by Norman Solomon.
Amazon, among other things, is a tax arbitrage scam, folks. They profit from not having their Customers pay sales tax. This shrinks state’s coffers. They’ve got tons of incentive to partner with the gov’t. Bezos is a d!ck Libertarian.
monkeychamp commented on the blog post Another Reminder Why the Filibuster Needs to Be Eliminated
Let Cruz filibuster it with Dr. Seuss for as long as he can. Makes him look like the dolt that he is.
Let the Repubs hang themselves on this debt ceiling. If BO does some alternative “funding” of debt ceiling he rescues the 1%, and the Repubs. Let the markets crash – it will expose the libertarians and right wingers as frauds. Me personally, I’ll be long all day after it happens and laugh all the way [...]
Hmmm, I signed up for “Mechanical Turk”. 48 hours until my “account” is approved. I didn’t bother to read the agreement very closely, maybe I should have. I work in IT, so I’d think I could find something with this… I’m interested to see what is offered and for how much. I have a likeloathe [...]
monkeychamp commented on the blog post AP, Photographer to George Zimmerman: “Copyright Violation” on Latest Painting
I’d buy it! For $1
I wanted to watch the Wyoming debates. Would have been amusing to watch Liz try to out-conservative her Dad’s fishing buddy. She’ll be back, she’s a neo-con with Wars and countries to ruin.
monkeychamp commented on the blog post Irony Alert: Obama Thinks Leaving Out Important Caveats Is “Grossly Misleading”
No, I’m NOT saying I got mine. I’m saying the BO “lied” is a Repub talking point and not worth getting into the weeds about. Jon’s pushing a repub meme here. I’m not calling him a Liar either.
I was also criticizing his post yesterday about Cadillac plans, so a little off point. Again, there I think he’s wrong, not a liar.
