It makes me so mad that my tax money is going to someone making $73.00 hr. and I am making less then $10 hr.

Van Helsing, you need to change the photo to a GM or Chrysler, Ford supposedly turned the money down!

And here I have been driving nothing but GMC since I got my drivers permit.

"WKMG: Police said a Florida man slammed a picture frame on the floor of a woman's apartment, and then picked up the shattered frame, threw it and hit her in the face after she said she didn't like Obama."

Citizens thrown in mental hospitals for filing complaints about police corruption in China:

Thats how a REAL dictatorship treats its citizens.

GLOBAL WARMING FRAUD often pairs conflicting stories with the same admirable goal as Fox News’ motto of, “We report, you decide,” and unlike the liberal press approach of, “This is the truth, now shut up and do what you’re told!” This particular pairing is positively scary.

On the one hand, we have the AP story about global warming, “Thousands Negotiate New Climate Treaty,”, a report on efforts of global warmists to replace the Kyoto Protocol with a new plan that will put bigger and sharper teeth in enforcement.

It begins with a typical, leftist fait accompli: ”POZNAN, Poland (AP) — Scientists studying the changing nature of the Earth’s climate say they have completed one crucial task — proving beyond a doubt that global warming is real. Now they have to figure out just what to do about it.”

And do they have solutions to save the planet! Those “futuristic” solutions include, “imitating the cooling effects of a massive volcanic eruption by spreading sulfur in the atmosphere, or scattering billions [of] tiny refractors high in the air to dim the sun and lower the temperature.” The warmists do admit that, “such radical solutions involve risks.”Ya think?

Let’s see now. The scientific gods would like to imitate the effects of Krakatoa, which claimed 36,000 lives, or Mount St. Helens, which caused untold devastation, by poisoning the atmosphere or to play Mother Nature by cooling the Earth with “tiny refractors” to deflect the rays from Father Sun.

I wish they wouldn't have put profanity in this because I'd like to post it to a few places on the net.

Tracy Abdur-Rasheed’s name sounds suspiciously Muslim but that can’t be since Muslims never prostitute themselves and, good grief, would never force their daughters to become hookers. Anyway, Tracy had a party in Detroit the other night.

Probably due to Republicans refusing, so far, to bail out the auto industry, Tracy threw the party to make ends meet while she waited for Congress to bail her out.

It wasn’t a byob type of party but rather a byoc, (”c” for cash), type of party and some 20 gents/johns showed up and plunked down $15. for some entertainment and what better entertainment is there for perverts than dancing, naked, underaged teenagers?

According to this CNN/Breitbart report, two sixteen year old girls were forced by Tracy to dance nude or semi-nude on stage for the patrons. One just happened to be her daughter:

Times are tough in Detroit right now and in the rest of the Rust Belt and Ms. Tracy must have figured that hosting a byoc party...

"It makes me so mad that my tax money is going to someone making $73.00 hr. and I am making less then $10 hr."
The $73/hr figure is a bit misleading-I think deliberately,to get people a little angry- but they don't actually make that rate hourly. That's what the pay and benefits package and pension plan amount to. Still a whole lot of money,yes, but not quite as exorbitant as you may have been led to believe.
And as far as your salary goes, you could always sell your soul to the union...

Nutty Democrat Moonbat Fred Phelps is at it again. People assume Fred Phelps is a right-winger because he hates teh gheys, but he has run for office twice as a Democrat, and supported the candidacy of Al Gore.

He is also a virulent anti-war protester, who traveled to Iraq to support Saddam Hussein. All of which makes him kindred to the KosKidKrowd, and not to the Respectable Right.

did anybody catch the audio this morning of blagovomit talking about his conversation with his mother after he was elected? she told him to be honest and be for the people - he affirmed to her that he'd never tarnish the reputation of his father - LMAO!

Zimbabwe, What we can look forward to:

"Hundreds of Zimbabweans have crossed the border to seek medical treatment because Zimbabwe's health service and water supply infrastructure have virtually collapsed."

Yeah, conservativeteen, but all the lefties whose panties were so wadded by 'Blood Diamonds' don't seem to have any problem with the Brutal Thug Dictatorship Diamonds that keep Mugabe's Regime afloat.

Van you better check last month's Consumer Reports because it states that most of Ford's vehicles are now equal or better than Toyota and Honda. The only model I could see that they didn't like was the F150 but I have no complaints about mine and the wife loves her Escape. CR did say that GM and Dodge are still building crap.

Posted by: Farmer Ted at December 11, 2008 10:57 AM

yall are reading the post of the biggest idiot in the world as i have just purchased a dodge challenger srt package for an un-real price. I try not to think about how low the sticker price will be in the next few weeks...with this in mind maybe i should be concidered for the new car czar, as i can certainly spend the $, just not make any.

Posted by: KENT M at December 11, 2008 3:05 PM

Look at it this way. I got my F150 for $10,000 off the sticker. It may be worth only the discounted price but damn what a bargain. :)
