Baylor is a right wing conservative as hell BAPTIST University. I mean freakazoid Baptist.

The only reason anyone not batshit dumb goes there is for their medical program.

So the fact that while Paul was attending he openly mocked them makes me more likely to vote for him.

marisacat - 19 October 2010

Yeah but Rand strikes me as serial ”stick it in your eye” child. Gets old.

Not that I care who wins. I don’t. Conway is a loser.

2. Revisionist - 19 October 2010

another site is floating the idea that the new federal investigation is just a ploy to stop all the state level AG investigations into the mortgages.

I am not a legalist so I am not sure how that works. Would Eric “I stamp out change as it happens” Holder’s investigation put a hold on the states looking into?

3. ts - 19 October 2010

Especially when there will be all sorts of different investigations going on after the elections.

What a scream! Clarence Thomas has not asked a question from the bench in god knows how many years… but apparently Ginni Thomas has left a voicemail message on Anita Hill’s phone, telling her (I heard her issue a directive, frankly) to apologise.

To pray on it and come to the right decision.

marisacat - 19 October 2010

A local legal reporter for ABC news here, hs been in contact with Anita Hill who says she forwarded the phone message to the Brandeis U police.

Madman in the Marketplace - 19 October 2010

jeebus!

fucking loons.

marisacat - 19 October 2010

Have you heard it yet? It is really looney. And offensive. Loaded with presumption.

And apparenlty, so I read, the NYT published, on the same day she left the message, a piece on Mrs Thomas and her standing in the Tea Partay mess…

There is an extended quote from Anita Hil in the NYT, longer than what others have.

Madman in the Marketplace - 19 October 2010

Went to look at it … I’d completely missed it.

Thomas explained it was a “peacemaking” gesture?!!!

Loon.

A buddy sent me some petition to sign regarding this. Too bad the petition is sponsored by some splinter of Working Assho– er, Working Assets. They of the “Out Of Iraq, Into Darfur” slogan, and similar “lite” Demo-Imperial excursions.

I threw the petition away.

“Clowns to right of me, Jokers further to the right…”

Shit.

marisacat - 20 October 2010

oh all of the “petitions” are just a ruse. Meaningless. Just a dodge to either get names and addresses or email addies.

The New Tax Man: Big Banks And Hedge Funds

Nearly a dozen major banks and hedge funds, anticipating quick profits from homeowners who fall behind on property taxes, are quietly plowing hundreds of millions of dollars into businesses that collect the debts, tack on escalating fees and threaten to foreclose on the homes of those who fail to pay.

The Wall Street investors, which include Bank of America and JPMorgan Chase & Co., have purchased from local governments the right to collect delinquent taxes on several hundred thousand properties, many in distressed housing markets, the Huffington Post Investigative Fund has found.

In many cases, the banks and hedge funds created new companies to do their bidding. They gave the companies obscure, even whimsical names and used post office boxes as their addresses, masking Wall Street’s dominant new role as a surrogate tax collector.

In exchange for paying overdue real estate taxes, the investors gain legal powers from local governments to collect the debt and levy fees. At first, property owners may owe little more than a few hundred dollars, only to find their bills soaring into the thousands. In some jurisdictions, the new Wall Street tax collectors also chase debtors over other small bills, such as for water, sewer and sidewalk repair.

Some states allow the investors to tack on as much as 18 percent interest and a passel of legal fees and other charges. When property owners fail to make full payment, the investors can sue to foreclose – in some states within as little as six months.

I was wondering why Ginny Thomas called up Anita Hill to threaten suggest prayer and an apology, and couldn’t come up with anything. A commenter at Balloon Juice thinks:

I may be wrong, but it occured to me that what the Thomases are really after (and make no mistake, it IS both of them) is a warning, not just to any potential trouble makers, but to everyone else. The teabaggers are coming for us. Clarence is one of the few black men that’s OK with them. He knows his place and does what he’s told. Ginny has her machinations and this is her declaring that when the Wingers take control, scores are going to be settled.

Remember that if there’s one thing they all believe, it’s that anyone with whom they disagree who has achieved any success in this world got what they have though underhanded deeds. They would never call the score settling the revenge that it is, they would call it justice. Whatever they tell us it is, whatever they tell themselves it may be, it is revenge, pure and simple.

marisacat - 20 October 2010

She is a strange woman… ti could easily be that. One thing is certain, she meant to do it… right when te NYT carries an article on issues with her PAC or whatever that Liberty thing is she started, and two weeks before election.

She is running an operative play.

I saw a rather awful tape today of Anita Hill trying to drive her car somewhere, perhaps to her home (not a busy street, I noticed), perhaps on a road leading to the entrance to Brandeis… reporters converged on her car, sticking the mic thru the open window and basically impeding her car…

I don’t know who in the Tolu Olorunda article pissed me off more, but I think Fryer, a Harvard educated black who wants to chalk up black white achievement gaps to “genetics” is probably it for me.

Toxic substance forces closure of Grijalva office

Police locked down the Tucson congressional office of Rep. Raul Grijalva (D-Ariz.) on Thursday afternoon after staffers received a package containing a “confirmed” toxic substance, a Grijalva spokesman said.

A suspicious package with swastikas written on the envelope was mailed Thursday to the Tucson office, where about a dozen staffers work. Upon inspection, it was found the package contained a white powder authorities later determined to be toxic, said Grijalva campaign spokesman Adam Sarvana.

There were no reported injuries and staffers were sent home later in the afternoon.

“Everyone was originally given a clean bill of health in our office,” Sarvana said. “Nobody is suffering from shock but everybody will have thorough testing and all they know right now is that it’s toxic.”

The incident marked the third security issue at Grijalva’s district offices since he called for an economic boycott of Arizona in protest of the state’s new law cracking down on illegal immigration.

Grijalva reported on Countdown that the package had swastikas decorating it.

I have to poke around, Nate Silver posted today that the Yes on 19 is falling behind.

It lagged thru the summer, but then seemed to move ahead. And I had thought when Obby and Holder started pushing against it, that it firmed up a bit more. People got irritated, some felt DC was telling us how to vote.

it certainly firmed up my desire to make sure to vote for it.

marisacat - 21 October 2010

hmm I see what Giordano is pushing. That aspect of it, that it will draw voters out and help the Dems, is being discussed out here, but I am unsure about it.

Madman in the Marketplace - 21 October 2010

I fascinated by how freaked out pollsters are by the increasing number of cellphone only people … I heard an interview the other day with one of them who basically said that there are big arguments going on about how to model them, and all the major pollsters are making very different assumptions and statistical models.

marisacat - 21 October 2010

Well.. but. The Democrats always pull this out (or have since 2004) when it seems they may do badly.

My own opinion is that less and less “cell phone only” people will be voting, much less registering.

So many toys today, who needs failed democracy.

Madman in the Marketplace - 21 October 2010

I’ve heard the donks bring it up before, but now it’s pollsters … who knows, hard to tell who’s tied into whom, what line everyone is playing.

marisacat - 21 October 2010

Prop 19 – whether it wins or loses – is now Senator Boxer’s only hope of reelection. Because she sure ain’t motivating this emerging force in US politics we’ll call cell phone voters, even if most of those that do vote will hold their noses and pull a lever for her.

ugh. I’d be a lot more impressed if Carly were raising gangbusters money and BB were not. But money has beena big stuggle fr Carly.

AND I’d be more impressed if Barbara had, in the past, done badly outisde the Bay Area or urban centers… but she has pulled in the votes (she got more votes than DiFi in 2004) from INLAND and Agricultural counties. Over and over, county after county.

It can only mean Barbara has delivered what they wanted.

and this kind of leaves me speechless….

The good news is, that Organizing for America – the 2010 version of the 2008 Obama field organization – does have a GOTV army and will also be pulling the California cell phone voters by the ear, tantalizing them with Prop 19 on the ballot, no matter what the Attorney General or “drug czar” say from Washington. Cabinet members do not now, and never will, rule the ground. ¡Olé!

I realise it is of no interest to Al Giordano, but there is a very interesting question in the Boxer Fiorina match. The R had NO PROBLEM at all with Carly sticking with her hard core anti abortion stance. No problem at all.

Meg pulled the old “I am pro choice” with the caveat that she is for “limiting abortion” and for “parental consent”…. and she did give BB 10K in 2002 (bet she wishes she had not).

I say they are testing the ground with the Carly run…. what can they pull with a hard core supposedy (seh says) faith based anti abortion stance. Even tho she has no current religion and attends no church.

Madman in the Marketplace - 21 October 2010

gonna be interesting to see how it goes …

FWIW, Bob Perry answers John Halle’s letter to him about his column disparaging third party, left side efforts.

Gah.

The thread goes over the old Nader Gore 2000 issues (becasue it still sticks in Perry’s craw I think).

But geesh. I never voted for Nader, never wanted to, but what the fuck is wrong with TELLING GORE TO DO BETTER. .. to have done better… (not saying he would have been any better than Bush…)

He couldn’t win his nominal home state. He was too afraid to even field Bill C to Arkansas. Etc. Had he won those, FL gets inconsequential….

It’s always reassuring to be reminded that no matter how much assholery and bullying Democrats engage in, we’ll always have the Parrys to remind us that if we were just a little nicer and kept the plates warmer at dinnertime and gave them more blow jobs while wearing nothing but Saran Wrap™, they wouldn’t beat the shit out of us so often after a hard day at the office with the mean ol’ Republican “bosses.”

Fuck off and die, Parry. You and Alterman and Moore and Ehrenreich and Sirota and Pollit and all the other little toadies and suck-ups and “big successes” on the left. For once in your pathetic lives, just shut up and FOAD.

Again, I think John Halle was right, it is being prepped for an “access blog”, should their preferred pedigree dog get the nod.

What a shame that would be. Still, nothing that doesn’t happen a million times every day all over Internetland.

It’s a good thing I went to the comic shop today. We also checked out the local food carts. Treated myself to some excellent Guam shrimp fritters, a small green salad w/Gorgonzola, and some excellent mushroom soup. (The salad place threw in a soft drink as part of the special.)

I’m still getting over last week’s cold, so the chili sauce on the fritters was a big help. :D

marisacat - 22 October 2010

oh taht all sounds so delicious!

ms_xeno - 22 October 2010

The BOregonian was apparently worried last week that the locals aren’t eating enough overpriced, shitty chain food. They ran some incredibly stupid puff piece about chain restaurants in which the writer whined about “foodies.” The pathetic factor only increased when one of the paper’s editors showed up to try and explain why it’s so important to kiss the ass of one’s corporate advertisers in a puff piece at a time when so many good local restaurants can’t survive the crap economy.

What a dipshit. It did my heart good to see so many of the online readers call the paper out on this pandering crap, though.

Yeah, I better eat at the Spaghetti Factory more often or else I’m a mean ol’ elitist. :p

Madman in the Marketplace - 22 October 2010

OOO, what did you buy?

I must admit I’m curious what comics you enjoy.

ms_xeno - 22 October 2010

My current vices are Legion of Superheroes, The Stuff of Legend, and a single issue of Mouse Guard that comes highly recommended, but that I haven’t yet had time to do more than glance at.

Also, I almost cried when I saw that James Sturm has a new book out, but it’s way too steep for me to buy at the moment. Later, maybe. I’ve loved him since his Cereal Killings days. [dreamy sigh]

Madman in the Marketplace - 22 October 2010

I keep meaning to pick up Mouse Guard.

Have you checked out Scarlet yet?

Obama Prepares to triangulate Himself

Wed, 10/20/2010 – 11:03 — Glen Ford

What a guy! Barack Obama has neutralized Blacks, the white left, and the majority of his own party in service to Wall Street, and some still call him “liberal” (The insane call him “socialist.”) With Social Security and Medicare in his sights, “the stage is set for a performance of presidential political gymnastics that will make Bill Clinton, once known as the Great Triangulator, bow down to the master.”

….

One thing is certain: the corporations will win and civilization will lose on November 2nd. The outcome is foreordained, since the dwindling electoral forces of civilization don’t have enough candidates in contention even to fill an effective caucus.

….

Thanks for the link, D!

Ford gives a succinct description of things as they are and have been my entire politically cognizant life:

…but the result is always the same: the fundamental interests of corporations are protected at the beginning of the process, which can only end with the people in worse shape than before it started.

diane - 24 October 2010

Yeah, I was glad I went, there were quite a few peeps there. Petitions to the presiding judge passed around, it was well organized. No problems (elections soon, likely helped a great deal) it rained quite a bit but there is a beautiful live oak in front of the City hall, has to be close to 100 feet in diameter, which lovingly sheltered quite a few of us who didn’t want to bring umbrellas.

To be continued on November 5th, at noon, same place (Oakland City hall on Clay, between 14th and 15th Streets). Also on the 5th, A Day To Honor Oscar Grant, at 14th and Broadway (close by) with a request for flowers or other items to place on an altar for Oscar Grant.

Additionally (coat stuffed with flyers), a mass community meeting announced, and on October 30-31st, a mobilizing conference In Defense of Public Education and Public Services – 9:00 AM, at San Francisco State University (Sat. Cesar Chavez Student Center, Sun. McKenna theater), 1600 Holloway Ave.

I adore this comment on Glen’s post:

Words Have Power
Afroseer – 10/23/2010 – 14:33

One way that the plutocrats win is by defining the terms of the debate. Many of us refer to Social Security, etc. as “entitlement programs”. Those programs are actually insurance programs that working citizens (and their employers) pay into when they work legitimate jobs. We contribute to this system over the course of decades and have a right to draw from it when we reach retirement age. Those most dismissive of such a system are the slavering wolves of Wall Street who can’t wait to rip, tear and devour that trillion dollar body of well managed funds (three percent administrative costs) and the propagandized consumers of right wing and corporate media.

The term, “entitlement” conjures up a lazy, parasitic person that wants something for nothing. The working people who contribute to the Social Security Insurance Program deserve to enjoy the fruits of their decades of labor. These workers have earned their benefits. Also deserving are the disabled, orphaned or semi-orphaned children and work at home moms, who perform vital unpaid labor for the whole society.

It seems that the only people who should be stuck with the “entitlement” label are the plutocrats and their toadys in the media and Professional Right.

Blame Alan Smithee for this. He’s the one with the permanent link to Digby the Dull as Dishwater Democrat Dimbulb:

Half Elf:
Chomsky, if I recall, advised people to vote for Obama on the grounds that vulnerable people here and abroad would suffer more if McCain was elected. He was obviously right, and that particular argument did not (in my opinion) depend on the body of political thought for which he’s revered and reviled. It’s not as if he invented the notion that involvement should extend beyond electoral politics. If he did vote Obama, I reckon he slept easy that night. It’s easy to understand why, and I’m not going to bother calling out certain commenters who can’t or won’t get the point.
Yesterday, 21:59:18

Hmmm:
So you’re saying that if your goal in life is to get a good night’s sleep, vote Democrat. Ok. For me, I think I’ll worry about my vote. I’ll spend some sleepless nights wondering just what does one do to tell politicians they are going too far in an ever more socially destructive agenda. Simply voting for them regardless of what they do and “pretending” that torture, unaffordable health care, massive oil leaks, on and on is fine as long as a democrat does it, is making less and less sense.

Why the fuck should I vote to make someone else’s life better at the expense of my own? I’m fucking vulnerable, I make less than 20k a fucking year, and you don’t think that’s vulnerable then you’re just a mother fucking crackheaded jack-ass.

ugh we vote almost constantly out here… 9 or 10 times (maybe more I lose track) in 5 or 6 years.

Bizarre:

Randy Quaid seeks refugee status in Canada

U.S. actor Randy Quaid and his wife Evi are seeking refugee status in Canada, telling an Immigration and Refugee Board hearing in Vancouver that they fear for their lives in the U.S.

The Quaids told the hearing Friday that eight of their close friends had been killed in recent years and they now felt endangered themselves.

Evi Quaid said friends such as actors David Carradine and Heath Ledger were “murdered” under mysterious circumstances and she’s worried something will happen to her husband.

“We feel our lives are in danger,” she said.

[...]

The Quaids are facing felony burglary charges and misdemeanour counts in the U.S. for allegedly moving back into and vandalizing a home they once owned in Santa Barbara, Calif. Both are wanted on $500,000 bench warrants issued by judge Donna Geck in Santa Barbara.
