Of course Apple and Mittens "broke no laws." They and there fellow travelers bribed their conservative Congressmen to legalize their tax cheating ways.
Maybe they'll bribe Congressmen to legalize rape and child molestation next so that more conservatives can legally vote.According to Cons, if it's legal it's a-okay.posted @ Friday, May 24, 2013 - 07:21
@proftom: I mean good that "conservative corporate sycophants" will block any bill that might inconvenience these TBTF (sic) banks.

I thought Romney was quite a good candidate but the liberal media attacked him non-stop.
If there were less moochers in this country he'd be President right now and Obama would be back in Kenya or Indonesia or some other muslim country.
And if there were no conservative moocher states, Mittens wouldn't have gotten one electoral vote.posted @ Wednesday, May 22, 2013 - 07:49
. Awww. The poor little tea hags like Deb Dooley are having a sad because they think their little astroturf political groups shouldn't have to pay taxes.
The only crime here is that these tea bag groups were illegally gifted with tax-free status. How much illegal pressure did right-wing congressmen put on the IRS to get these GOPer groups tax free status?
We need an investigation.posted @ Wednesday, May 22, 2013 - 07:00

@marshalld: I understand that we have enough oil in North Dakota to be self-sufficient. We certainly have enough natural gas to put a dent in oil consumption. Why is the administration throwing money away on wind farms, and solar companies that just as quickly go bankrupt?
You can bet your sweet ass, that if a Republican was in the White House, the Democrats would be screaming and blaming him for everything from global warming to the price of tea in China.
Gas prices may be set by the oil companies, but ENERGY POLICY is set by the White House. Time for Obama to start taking a little ownership of the fallout from his Hope and Change bull crap.
Bad energy policy? Is that why (unlike under recent Republican administrations) America is a net energy exporter?posted @ Tuesday, May 14, 2013 - 07:26

It was obvious that Witherspoon was mortified by her behavior, far beyond the puny punitive powers of Pitts' prose.
Yet, no mention at all of her very public contrition.
Perhaps Pitts is more judicious with his imbibing. I hope so. Anyway, no one cares who he am.
Score one for Reece.

Niall Ferguson isn't a con?
"Ferguson was an advisor to the John McCain U.S. presidential campaign in 2008, and announced his support for Mitt Romney in 2012 and has been a vocal critic of Barack Obama."
What he isn't, is an economist. He's just a history professor from England.posted @ Sunday, May 5, 2013 - 13:03
Since the ABH and the Savannah rag are printing rumours now, why not just print all rumours? I heard a rumour that GOPers were trying to exempt themselves from kiddie porn laws. Why don't you run with that? It's probably more true than the nonsense above.posted @ Thursday, May 2, 2013 - 10:39

Yeah, 90 miles going south and 90 miles going north.
Regardless, this bill will take money from Georgians to benefit Atlanta. One new "spaghetti junction" in Gwinnett County costs more than repaving all of little stretch of I-95 along the coast of this state.
And, what will be the "benefit" to Georgians of diverting our taxes to Atlanta? It will help them move where they live ever further from where they work. For the rest of us, it will just mean more air pollution and more expensive gasoline.
Guess where most of that tax money comes from in the first place genius. Atlanta. Time for the rural inbred conservative hicks to stop mooching off of the productive people of Atlanta.posted @ Friday, April 19, 2013 - 20:09

Gotta love how the local fascists who usually claim to be fiscal conservatives care nothing about the fact that McConnell basically stole taxpayer money by having his government paid staffers work on his campaign while taxpayers were paying their salaries.
What else can you expect from the moocher senator from another conservative moocher state? There's only one crime that we know of and it was committed by McConnell the gay turtle.posted @ Friday, April 12, 2013 - 20:51

Rep. Regina Quick, R-Athens, was one of two local delegates to score less than an "A+" in the Chamber of Commerce's annual legislative score card. She and I played phone tag Monday when I was reporting the story and I wasn't able to get her comments in a timely fashion. Instead, she sent over this statement Wednesday morning and she did not mince her words. (Links and italicized portions are my own; otherwise, it's as she wrote it.) Dear Friends: read more
The committee opted Tuesday night to put off deciding on the ordinance until, at the earliest, its next meeting. Of note: The Athens-Clarke County attorney highlighted that the proposed times are, in essence, placeholders for the commission to change or keep as it pleases. Full text of the Use of Public Right-of-Ways ordinance draft is below. read more
