What? A Retreat to Reality Based?

I was shocked to find Global Coalition for Transparent
Internet Performance
since it is as IF they did not trust the Internet Service Providers marketting position that positions are positionable in markets when marketable!!!

I mean, would anyone freed from the JackBooted Iron Fisted Lock Step Hand Walking Massively Brutal Governmental Regulation do anything but provide the Best that the Freedome of the Free Trade In Free Markets would Allows!!!

Why just look at the glorious military victories of Finance and Automobile Industries to see how the Freedom frees the Fee!!!

Deepening Communist Armed Aggression

The banks should not be negotiating with the government over this.

There comes a point when the right thing to do will be to set up a Maggie Sue--a manufacturing, transportation, services, and other business loan-guarantee authority owned by the government, a financial GSE alongside Fannie, Freddie, and Ginnie--to guarantee "conforming" loans to operating companies, and let the major banks wither.

Remember: the purpose of a financial system is to make new loans so that operating firms can obtain financing on reasonable terms. We don't care what happens to the value of old loans or to current-bank stakeholders as long as companies going forward can get new loans.

[ cf Ummm... This Should Not Be Happening ]
Blink.

What? You mean that the Majikal Financial Centers that are on the brink of collapsing the Financial Industry because of their own internal failures should/could be abandoned and the NationalSocialistMarxianistCommunistPhasicstCryptoPapistZionists replace them with some sort of system based upon the idea that doing the actual mission were more important than merely making a Profit!!!!

WE TRIED TO WARN YOU!!!!
If they Nationalize Warfare!
They Will Come For Your Fiscal Assets Next!!!!
But did any of the pseudo-cons who were all in favor of maintaining the Nationalized warfare model as a basis for no-bid socialist welfare to the private sector Homeland Security Investment Bubble willing to think that problem through???

Now remind me again what the down side here is???

If we would up with loan origination systems that were using the national currency as a way to create goods and services that would be purchasable by a national currency, rather than using say an Internationalized Currency.....

more fun in the Torture Place

For those of you who were not following along, another fun is up at Department of Huh? where once again the real question is whether or not Clive Crook is back pedaling on the torture issue, or is this more of the same old call to faith, and that because it is not easy to explain it must be a proof of the existence of God, and not merely illogical.

Which of course runs into the core problem, since Komrade party leader Cook opted for
Instead, Crook wrote: "Congress should make waterboarding a crime... it has had many chances... to do so. The fact is, it has chosen not to..."
( op cit )
Which skips the Reagan Era convictions with regards to waterboarding as both torture and criminal.

Unless of course america really did slip a cog or two on 09/11 and thus mere conviction in a Reagan Era Court is not like they were really crimes, because in the Reagan Era they got convictions against people who were not engaged in crimes....

How To Commit War Crimes In Polite Society.

At Berkeley, John Yoo is in trouble for saying that the president could legally order the army and the CIA to torture--but Berkeley Dean Chris Edley says that John is safe from any form of academic process because he was staff and not line--he did not actually order anybody to torture or tell anybody that they were ordered to torture anyone.
...
As I understand things, Cheney and the Bush NSC--Rice and company--went hunting for someone who would tell them (a) waterboarding isn't torture, and (b) the president can legally order torture. They found John Yoo, who told them what they wanted. Then Bush told Rice to order the CIA to torture.

Now as I understand Edley's position, Berkeley cannot proceed against Yoo because he did not do any wrongful deeds--he just gave wrongful advice. And Stanford cannot proceed against Rice because even though she was in the chain of command she did not know that the deeds were wrongful.

A very nice setup indeed.

[ cf Condi Rice and John Yoo ]
Any Questions?

So if the president does it, it must be legal.

How can anyone doubt such solid all american faith in the Moral Superiority of Great Leader....

Hum.... so only the line grunts can be prosecuted for 'merely following orders'....

What a Nation....

The South Moves North...

WOW, not since they Won against the Yankee's at Gettysberg have we seen such a mission accomplished dance:
Gasps filled the courtroom and some had to be restrained by sheriff's deputies as they tried to rush the defense table after Derrick Donchak, 19, and Brandon Piekarsky, 17, were acquitted of aggravated assault, reckless endangerment and ethnic intimidation for the death of Luis Ramirez.

Piekarsky was also found not guilty of third-degree murder for the death of Ramirez, who died of blunt force injuries after an encounter with the teens last summer.

However, the all-white jury of six men and six women from Schuylkill County jury found Piekarsky and Donchak guilty of simple assault.

The case drew national attention to the small town of Shenandoah, Pennsylvania, highlighting race relations and polarizing the community on who was to blame for the incident.

[ cf Some satisfied, others outraged with verdict for immigrant's death ]
Remember Boys and NonPerkin, when striking back against the Godless UnBelievers who are taking away our high paying jobs in the non-existent economics zones, that you strike hard, and fast, and make sure that the ambiguity provide a legal basis for showing that the Persectution of White Christian America by Radical Judicial Advocates is all a part of the HORROR of the current NationalSocialistMarxianistCryptoPapistZionistPhascistThingusOfPooh about big government and stuff.

that way it is not like it was a criminal as if it were a crime or anything.

{ hey kids, anyone want to talk about asymetric warfare? you know, formerly known as Insurgencies and stuff... }

Are YOU doing YOUR Part to protect US from Liberal Media Persecution?

My EvilLiberalParasite Friend wanted me to look at Gun-toting hatemongers: They're ba-a-a-a-a-a-ack since he felt it was interesting that Max Blumentahl went to gun shows, and found that there is an interesting set of marketting paradigms at work in the WonderLand World, where folks are not as interested in getting Mortars, ATGMs, RPG, and other High Explosive Technologies that are really useful for actually implementing a 'well regulated militia' - since, well, uh, that would be almost as dangerous as putting one's self at risk for "Hostile Fire Payzone Income" and the inevitable technical concerns about how much of that is Tax Free...

I love the idea that the right to own guns is a right given from GOD.

Hum....

Now why is it that none of these wingNuts can ever find the part in the Bible where God outlines the correct construction of a fire mission plan that integrates Artillery Fire, Mortar Fire, and point defense systems into a fully co-ordinated attack and defense plan?

I mean, we were clear enough when Iraq was defending America from Iran, that a fully integrated fire mission plan should include things like the use of Chemical and Biological Warfare Agents in the area suppresssion role. And YOU CAN NOT Tell me that some Secular Humanist Communist Like Saddam Hussein was allowed to do that without being cleared to Read The True Christian Bible...

Or is that REALLY the problem here.

Fully Integrated Fire Mission Planning is a step into the Danger Zone that may be a risk to the cash flow position, and as such may not be a Gooder idea.

HUM.........

What if there had been a gooder reason for a National Guard System, that was a State Asset unless Federalized...... Or does that way take us back to the time before 9/11 and all that scary stuff.

DMZ: drieuxish movie Zone

well one of my GOD HATING AMERICA BASHING associates gave me that tag, because he seems to believe that my approach to viewing films:
Two Films Enter!
One Films Leaves!
has that whole
Two Legs Good.
Four Legs Bad.
Return to the House Of Pain model of showing that only by the SURVIVAL OF THE FITEST can True Cinema Rise Above the Brutal Repression of Red Hollywood.

I would like to propose:
Dam Busters v. The Jane Austen Book Club
Since there are times when nothing says loving like massively HUGE bombing devices that are willing to put a bit of Spin on the Usual Struggle Against the Anti-Social Consequences of Capital Gains Taxes!

Because ...

TERRORIST REBRANDING CAUSES PRODUCTIZATION ISSUES!!!

so keep america american.

Communists On Wall Street Continue To Stab Our Holy Warriors In The Back with Red Propoganda!

Is it just me, or do you too still miss the great and glorious days of the Great Proletarian Cultural Revolution and the art forms that they inspired?

Be that as it may, communists inside the wall street journal, on the order of their Peking Pay Masters engage in Anti-Americanism:
If you're trying to figure how bad things are for Republicans, consider this: More Americans say they are conservatives than say they are part of the Republican Party -- which is supposed to be, after all, the party of conservatives.

That picture emerges from deep inside the latest Wall Street Journal/NBC News poll. The numbers there show the extent of the woes facing today's Republican Party -- woes that came into sharp relief last week with the defection of Pennsylvania Sen. Arlen Specter to the Democrats.

Yet the numbers also suggest the GOP might be able to start climbing out of its hole, which is precisely what some party leaders are trying to do by launching a new effort to reach out to the grass roots across the country.

[ cf GOP Tries to Dig Out of Its Hole ]
Piece of advice defeatist rumour monger!

What if the GOP opted to come up with a position other than supporting wankers supporting a tax revolt inside of an insurrection while the troops are still in a hostile fire pay zone?

You know - establish positions that were more than merely STOP NANCY PELOSI, SHE IS A GIRL!

And we developed arguments about why we the GOP have always supported draft dodging, because the Welfare Statists were giving all of the good billets to The Darkies...

And this time around, because they were going to Gays and Girls!!! and so there was no longer any room for real men....

Godless CommunistNationalSocialistProgressiveWelfareStatistPhascism!

The Federal Trade Commission is investigating whether the close ties between Apple's and Google's boards of directors violates antitrust laws, the New York Times reports.

Apple and Google share two directors, Google CEO Eric Schmidt, and former Genetech CEO Arthur Levinson. According to the story (free subscription required):

The Clayton Antitrust Act of 1914 prohibits a person's presence on the board of two rival companies when it would reduce competition between them.

[ cf Report: FTC Probing Apple/Google Ties ]
Makes me wonder if these COMMUNISTS by invoking some 1914 law have copies of Komrade Party Leader Vladimir Ilyich Lenin plastered on their office walls like the College Frat Boy Socialists they must be!!!

How can ANYONE impose the sort of God Hating America Bashing hard left excess jack booted repression that can only come from Radical Hard Leftists like Dear Old Dick and his Polyvynal Regulators!!!!

{ no, seriously - the idea of a progressive era bill being used after the whole world changed on 911, I mean, what next? Komrade Mom In The Comrade Momovitch??? Clearly NOW we must have the Teabaggers for Freedom defending
Apple and Google from those folks who are not going Gilda enough. }
