Goodbye, 2009

Goodbye, 2009. It was nice knowing ya.

2009 wasn’t a bad year, really. Not for me, anyway. It was much better than I anticipated. I even managed to fulfill a few of my resolutions. I’m hoping 2010 is even better. I approach the year with optimism even though I am not the most optimistic person in the world. Anyone who knows me well will verify this. Some of my readers may be aware of this already.

How was your 2009?

2009 was a pretty good year for politics, not as good as 2008, but good nonetheless. 2010 promises to be a better year for politics, and hopefully a better one for blogging as well. 2009 was also my first full year of blogging. I began blogging here in late July 2008. Prior to that I had a short lived blog at AOL Journals where I published maybe ten posts in all of two years. This blog, has been much more successful. Especially with the help of Entrecard. Though, I’m still not satisfied with the amount of page views/blog visits thus far and I suppose it will be something I have to work on in 2010. If you have any suggestions, please let me know.

I’ve compiled a list of my Top 10 favorite posts of 2009. Please, check them out and comment on them. If you have any favorite posts of mine, let me know in the comments. Here they are:

1) Former President Bush touts son Jeb for top job

2) Letterman takes on Blagojevich

3) Alex Rodriguez and steroid use

4) Daylight Savings Time Begins

5) A second stimulus package...

5) 30% Say Government Should Limit Pay for Athletes and Movie Stars

6) Earth Day

7) Rasmussen Reports April 16

8) Obama kills fly...PETA gets a hardon over it

9) Atheists sue to keep 'In God We Trust' off Capitol Visitor Center

10) Wingnuts?

It turns out I couldn’t stop at just 10 posts. So here’s a bunch more:

11) Health Care

12) Favorites

13) Tiger Woods?

14) Five 9/11 suspects to be charged in NY

15) SC Gov. Mark Sanford admits he's had an affair

16) People Choose News That Fits Their Views

17) NH becomes 6th state to legalize gay marriage

18) Voters Now Trust Republicans More than Democrats on Economic Issues

19) 79% Support U.S. Troops on the Border to Fight Drug Violence

20) Tired of hearing about Rush Limbaugh

21) One-Out-of-Seven Favor 90% Tax Rate for Millionaires

And there may be more. Maybe you can find them for me.

Thanks and Happy New Year!

Dear Diary

This pretty much explains why I moved out of “snow country” in the north. Only I moved to Arizona, not Florida.  The author is unknown, but it is a brilliant piece of work.


Aug. 12 - Moved to our new home in RI. It is so beautiful here. The mountains are so serene and picturesque. I can hardly wait to see snow covering them. God's Country: I love it here.

Oct. 14 - RI is the most beautiful place on Earth. The leaves are turning all different colors; I love the shades of red and orange. Went for a ride through some beautiful mountains and spotted some deer. They are so graceful; certainly they are the most peaceful animals on Earth. This must be a paradise. I love it here.

Nov. 11 - Dear Season will start soon. I can't imagine anyone wanting to kill such an elegant creature. The very symbol of peace and tranquility. Hope it will snow soon...I love it here.

Dec. 2  - Snowed last night. Woke up to find everything blanketed with white. It looks like a postcard, we went outside and cleaned the snow off the steps and shoveled the driveway. We had a snowball fight, (I Won), and when the snowplow came by, we had to shovel the driveway again. What a beautiful place, Mother Nature in perfect harmony; I love Rhode Island.

Dec. 12 - More snow last night. I love it. The snowplow did his trick again (that rascal). A winter wonderland.... I love it here in Rhode Island.

Dec. 19 - More snow last night.... I'm exhausted from shoveling snow. Fucking Snowplow!

Dec. 22 - More of the white shit fell last night.... Couldn't get out of the driveway to get to work this time. I've got blisters on my hands from shoveling. I think the snowplow man hides around the curve and waits until I'm done shoveling this driveway. Asshole!

Dec. 25 - "White Christmas"--My busted ass! More friggin' snow. If I ever get my hands on that son of a bitch who drives that fuckin' snowplow, I swear I'll castrate the fucking bastard! I don't know why they don't use more salt on the roads to melt this fucking ice!

Dec. 28 - Whiter shit last night. Been inside since Christmas day except for shoveling out the driveway after "Snow-Plow Harry" comes along every time. Can't go anywhere, car buried in a mountain of white shit. The weatherman expects another 10'' of the shit tonight. Do you have any idea how many shovel-fulls of snow 10" is?

Jan. 1  - Happy fucking New Year! The weatherman was wrong (again). We got 34" of the white shit this time. At this rate, the snow won't melt till the fucking 4th of July. The snowplow got stuck up the road, and the fuckin' motherfucker had the balls to come to the door and ask to borrow a shovel. After I told him I've broken six shovels already, shoveling all the shit he dumped into my driveway, I broke my last one over his fuckin' head.

Jan. 4 - Finally got out of the house today. Went to the store to get food. On the way back a goddamn deer ran right in front of the car and I hit the bastard. Did about $3,000 damage to the car. Those fucking beasts should be killed. Wish the hunters had killed them all last November.

May 4 - Took the car to the garage in town. Would you believe the thing is rotting out from all the fucking salt they keep dumping all over the roads. Car looks like a piece of shit!

May 10 - MOVED TO FLORIDA: I can't imagine why anyone in their right friggin' mind would want to live in a god forsaken place called Rhode Island.

Happy Birthday, Frank Sinatra!

Frank Sinatra would be 94 years old if he were alive today. Inarguably, Frank was the most important popular music figure in the twentieth century. A career that spanned six decades, He continues selling millions and millions of records each year, even a decade after his death. Frank’s biggest selling albums were recorded and released when he was eighty years old while performing to sold out concert halls all around the world attests to this fact. Love him, or hate him, you can’t deny his popularity, tremendous talent, and charisma. How many artists have recorded and released a hit tune that became one of his signature recordings when he was sixty five years old? Not many. Everybody knows New York, New York. They hear it every year on New Years Eve after the countdown in Time’s Square.

Of course, there’s so many other wonderful Sinatra recordings besides New York, New York and My Way. With nearly 2,000 studio recordings, there’s too many for me to list here. Note that Frank actually hated My Way because he thought the song was too arrogant, but only he could sing it without sounding that way. The song is also one of the most sung at Karaoke bars, millions of people butchering the tune because Frank inspired something in them through his singing. Frank’s voice is probably one of, if not the most heard in movie and television soundtracks. Producers trying to incorporate a little Frank into their work, improving its likeability. You’ll frequently hear Frank on TV commercials as well. Sinatra sells!

Speaking of movies and television, Frank’s acting career is shadowed by singing career. Acting, directing, and producing nearly sixty movies, he certainly left his mark on Hollywood. An Academy Award nomination for his stellar performance as a drug addict in the Man With the Golden Arm, winning an Oscar for his performance in 1954’s From Here To Eternity solidified his acting career and made him one of the biggest and highest paid actors in Hollywood. He worked with some of the very best in Hollywood, including Marlon Brando and Cary Grant along with many others.

I don’t think I need to tell you that Sinatra is very important to me. My online alias, Stunatra, explains that. No other singer comes close to Frank Sinatra. For me, no one excites me the way that he does. If I’m down, he’ll bring me up, if I’m up, he’ll bring me even higher. It saddens me that I was born too late to have seen him live in concert. I wish he were still alive today, though that probably goes without saying. Frank will live on through his music and will be up there with the likes of Beethoven and Mozart. Hundreds of years from now, people will still be listening to Sinatra, just as those listen to Beethoven and Mozart’s work today. May the last voice I ever hear, be Frank Sinatra's.

I will close this post with a video of Frank’s first commercial studio recording from 1939, From The Bottom Of My Heart:

Hope you enjoy. And thanks for reading!

Happy Birthday, Frank!

Attention Entrecard Bloggers

You know what’s pissing me off lately? When I’m dropping on people who drop on me, and I can’t find their goddamn Entrecard. It’s like trying to find a needle in a haystack. They either hide it to make it difficult to find, or you can’t find it at all. How do they drop on my blog if they don’t have a widget on their site? And what is the point of dropping if you’re not gonna display the widget on your site so I can drop back? I’m tired of this shit.  If anyone can elaborate on why this shit happens, please, by all means tell me. I want to know. I am tired of having a tired hand after all the unnecessary clicking and scrolling. I’m contemplating leaving Entrecard altogether, and this bullshit is helping me come to that decision.

“Go Home!”

I’m sure we’ve all told someone to “Go Home!” at one time or another, right? Do we realize what we’re saying when we tell someone to “go home”? Who are we to tell them to go home? If they are in our home and we want them out, then we should ask them to leave. A “Please leave,” would suffice, or if it’s a hostile situation, then a “get the fuck out of here” would probably be better. I don’t think we have the right to tell anyone to go home. I’d be pretty pissed off if someone told me to go home when that is not where I wanted to go. Wouldn’t you be pissed? Think about this the next time you’re tempted to tell someone to go home. Instead, tell them, “Go to hell!” Then you could wish them luck in finding hell. And if they do find it, pray that they don’t come back to let you know where it is.

Winter Songs vs. Christmas Songs

Why is it that we can’t wait to play Christmas songs a month and a half before the holiday? But once the holiday is gone, so are all the songs! Has anyone else noticed this? I hope some of you realize that there are Christmas songs and there are Winter songs. I’m afraid there are people out there who can’t tell the difference.

Silent Night, Joy To the World, O Holy Night. Obviously these are Christmas songs. Now look at Frosty the Snowman, it’s a winter song. So is Jingle Bells, Winter Wonderland, Sleigh Ride, Let It Snow! and I’ve Got My Love To Keep Me Warm. Why is that once Christmas has come to pass you can’t find any of these songs being played anywhere? I don’t understand it. They are Winter songs! I think that Winter ends sometime around April, right? You could play the winter songs on the radio from November to April and it’d be accurate to do so (assuming there is still snow on the ground). Why do the Christmas and Winter songs get lumped together? Can’t you tell the difference? Doesn’t anyone pay attention to lyrics?

Am I wrong in my assumptions? What’s your take on this? Please leave your thoughts in the comments, and thanks for reading!

Tiger Woods?

Tiger Woods is all I keep hearing about on the TV the past several days. Who cares? Do you care? I sure as hell don’t.  I’m tired of hearing about it!  I do not give a fuck if he got drunk and smashed his big expensive SUV. It is none of my concern.  So keep this shit off my TV! If I wanted to hear this crap I’d tune into ET! (Entertainment Tonight), TMZ or Access Hollywood.

Five 9/11 suspects to be charged in NY


This is insanity. Why would anyone think that bringing these fucks into the US is a good idea?

Speaking from Japan, Obama called the move: "a prosecutorial decision as well as a national security decision."

How the fuck is it a national security decision? It’s a violation of national security!

Let them rot in fucking Guantanamo! Don’t bring them here! They’ve done enough damage here! I guess that if they’re gonna be “tried” here in the US, they’re also going to be given rights. How fucking insane is this? They are not citizens! They are terrorists and they don’t deserve a trial in this country! They don’t have any rights! They shouldn’t be here in the first place! If convicted, they’re going to be housed in American prisons? So they can have a chance at breaking out and finishing what they started?

When will the insanity end?


Sign the petition to keep these fucks out of the USA, here.

It’s Still Too Early!

Last year, around this time, I wrote an entry complaining about the early celebration of the holidays. View it here.

I just have to say, it’s still too goddamn early to be celebrating this shit. We just got over Halloween for fuck sake. Christmas commercials, Christmas music on the radio, in early November is just too early! Can’t we have a break until after Thanksgiving? Thanksgiving is the lead up to the Holidays. Once the turkey is settled in our bellies, we start looking forward to the holiday season. But not until then.

Who agrees!? Let me know in the comments!

Homophobia wins again

I know I am probably the last one in the blogosphere to write about this, but here it is.

Earlier this week, Maine voted to repeal a gay marriage law, with 53% of the vote.  I don’t understand it, I really don’t. How does allowing same sex couples get married hurt traditional marriage? How does allowing same sex couples the same rights as straight couples bother anyone? Somebody please, please enlighten me.

The rather interesting thing about this is, liberals, are usually pro-gay, but yet, liberal states like California and Maine vote against gay marriage, and a conservative state like Iowa is allowing them. How fucked up is this? So much for the gay hating conservatives huh? This shows how hypocritical liberals are.  Two of the most liberal states in the country vote against gay marriage, and one fairly conservative state voted for gay marriage. Pretty fucked up, huh? What does this say about conservatives? And what does this say about liberals? It certainly puts a spin on each one’s record, don’t ya think?

Happy Halloween!

Hello there! It’s been a long time. I’m sure you can tell. The hiatus is over. Actually, it’s been over for the past couple of weeks. I’ve just been to lazy to start posting again. Until now.

I spent the entire month of September and the first two weeks of October on the road, traveling the country. A long vacation, visiting family in my home state of RI and some friends in Minnesota. It certainly wasn’t an uneventful trip. On my way home, after leaving my friends in MN, I hit a pheasant on my way down from Mount Rushmore. The damned thing broke the grill on my truck. It just wandered onto the highway. By the time I saw it, it was too late. Wham! Feathers everywhere, and broken plastic, which I discovered when I stopped to rest in Wyoming.

By the time I stopped, I found myself in the middle of a blizzard. And for two days, I drove through ice and snow.  It was the first time I’ve seen snow in four years. And I think I’ve seen enough snow to last me another four years. I was never so happy to cross the border of Colorado into New Mexico. New Mexico greeted me with sun, nice puffy white clouds, and a beautiful blue sky with some moderate temperatures. Familiar territory. And it remained that way for the rest of the trip.

As the song goes, It’s nice to go travelin’, but it’s oh so much nicer to come home. And how true that is. It has never felt so nice to be home.


Without further ado, I bring you the top Entrecard droppers for October!

I’ve been seeing this term being thrown around a lot lately and I’ve begun to question it. Most of the people that I’ve seen use it, cling to one wing or the other, right or left. It’s such a vague term. Wingnuts. That could apply to whom? Either nuts on the left or right, right? It really isn’t specific. The ones using this term could be talking about themselves for all I know.

Wingnuts this, wingnuts that.

I don’t think I need to tell you that there’s nuts on both sides of the aisle. As for use of the term wingnuts, I think only those who don’t cling to either wing should use it.

What is your take on this term?

Health Care

I am tired of hearing the supporters of this bullshit ObamaCare bill claim the opponents deny that there is a need for reform. I haven’t seen anyone deny that there is a need for healthcare reform. There is a need for reform! We just disagree on what “reform” means. Government takeover of Healthcare is not what this country needs. Government intrudes on our life enough as it is. Why the fuck would you want government controlling every aspect of your life? And of all things, healthcare? You’ve gotta be insane. I know your heart is in the right place. But think with your head, not your heart. Don’t be naive in thinking that this bill will make life easier for everyone. Government usually fucks up whatever it touches. If this bill comes to pass, Government will be fucking with your lives.

I hear people say all the time, “this is my favorite (book, movie, song) of all time.” They are very insistent on it too. It’s their absolute favorite. I don’t know how it is possible to have one absolute favorite of anything, be it song, book, or movie. There’s just too fucking many of them! There are so many wonderful songs, movies and books. How can you single out just one?

I can, however, understand singling out your favorite singer, actor/actress, etc. I can absolutely name a favorite singer, but totally stuck when it comes to a favorite actor. Though, it may help that, my favorite singer was an actor too. But, when it comes to movies, books, songs, I couldn’t name one absolute favorite to save my life.

My favorite singer of all time without a doubt, is Frank Sinatra. My second favorite happens to be female and she is Ella Fitzgerald, the female counterpart to Frank Sinatra. I couldn’t name my favorite song by either of these artists. They recorded thousands of them. I’d have no problem creating a favorites list containing hundreds of their songs, but to name just one? One single song? I can’t do it.

How about you? What do you think? What are your favorites?

One Year

Today marks the one year anniversary of this blog. I have to say, I never expected it to be as successful as it is today when I wrote the very first post. I figured it would be just like my original blog at AOL Journals. I’d link you to it, but AOL Journals went belly up last year. Not that I miss it, I didn’t have nearly as many readers there, nor did I post as much as I have here.

I thank all of you, my readers, for reading and commenting on this blog. Whether you agree with what I write or not, I’m glad you take the time to read and listen to what I have to say.

Here’s hoping the next year is as great as the first, if not better.

Good day, all. And thank you again.

Atheists sue to keep 'In God We Trust' off Capitol Visitor Center


WASHINGTON — A California Republican congressman wants to do a little writing on the walls of Washington's newest federal building. If Rep. Dan Lungren gets his way, Congress will spend nearly $100,000 to engrave the words "In God We Trust " and the Pledge of Allegiance in prominent spots at the Capitol Visitor Center .


I don’t believe in God, but I don’t consider myself  an “atheist.” I try to stay away from labels. People will say, “well, you don’t believe in God, so you must be an Atheist.” Nope.  Then they’ll say “Oh well you’re an agnostic then.” People are so quick to put labels on people and things. I dislike labels because they discourage an open mind. I don’t believe in God, okay? But that’s not to say I don’t believe that there could be a superior being of some sort. I don’t believe it, but I’m open minded about it. In simple words: I don’t dwell on it. Okay? I don’t let my life be dictated by some invisible man in the sky. If there really is a man up there, then we all shall find out some day. Until then, let’s just enjoy life, with or without God.

Now onto the article. I really don’t know why people are so easily offended these days. Seeing “In God We Trust” on our money and wherever else the phrase may happen to be, doesn’t offend me. I respect that others believe in a God. Long as they don’t try to convert me or whatever, I’m fine with it. I believe there should be some sort of acceptance on both sides of the aisle. Both sides could afford to be a little more accepting, I think. In the words of the late, great, George Carlin: “Keep thy religion to thyself.”

I don’t think that displaying In God We Trust affirms God’s existence. No one knows for a fact that God exists. Are the religious people that insecure in their beliefs that they have to see In God We Trust everywhere? And are the Atheists that insecure that seeing In God We Trust might make them reconsider their beliefs? I laugh at non-believers getting upset about God being in the pledge of allegiance. All I have to say to these people is: Get a life.

If people were more secure about their beliefs, this wouldn’t even be an issue. But alas, here it is. The real issue, is this: Spending $100,000 of tax payer money to put these words in public areas is a little ridiculous when this country is in a financial crisis. I’m sure $100,000 could be better spent. Don’t you?

Rest in Peace MJ

I never was a big fan of MJ, but I did like several of his songs. I admire his amazing talent and respect him even though he was a mixed up individual. After all, he was human, right?

Here’s a picture of two of the biggest artists of all time:

Frank Sinatra and Michael Jackson together during a session of Frank’s LA Is My Lady album in 1984. Frank was working with Quincy Jones at the time, who helped MJ produce a string of major pop hits in the 80s.

RIP, MJ, the music world will miss you.

SC Gov. Mark Sanford admits he's had an affair

COLUMBIA, S.C. – After going AWOL for seven days, Gov. Mark Sanford admitted Wednesday that he'd secretly flown to Argentina to visit a woman with whom he'd been having an affair. He apologized to his wife and four sons and said he will resign as head of the Republican Governors Association.

"I've let down a lot of people, that's the bottom line," the 49-year-old governor said at a news conference where he choked up as he ruminated with remarkable frankness on God's law, moral absolutes and following one's heart. His family did not attend.

The woman, who lives in Argentina, has been a "dear, dear friend" for about eight years but, Sanford said, the relationship didn't become romantic until a little over a year ago. He's seen her three times since then, and his wife found out about it five months ago.

I like how Republicans claim to be pro-family values and Save marriage from homosexuals, but you find that they're always the first ones to be out sleeping around on their wives and/or found in a bathroom somewhere sucking cock. Which amounts to the same thing, really.

Homosexuals are going to destroy marriage! Can you believe that? I don't. You heterosexuals seem to be doing a fine job of that on your own.

Bunch of hypocrites.

Obama kills fly...PETA gets a hardon over it

Obama Kills Fly, PETA Gets A Hardon over it

Obama kills a fly and PETA wishes he didn't. Last I checked, PETA stood for "People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals" not the "People for the Ethical Treatment of Insects." It was a fucking fly, not a fucking animal you retards. It's an insect. A pest. One that carries diseases. They live on turds for christ sake! What is wrong with these fucking pussies. Who ever cried about a dead fly? Some two year old? If the fly buzzed around long enough, I bet that kid would swat that motherfucker too. Flies only live for like three days anyway, right? So what's the big fucking deal. Fuck PETA and fuck the fly. I'm glad the motherfucker is dead. One less fly in the world, the better.

51% Say More Government Regulation Likely To Help Reduce Smoking

51% Say More Government Regulation Likely To Help Reduce Smoking
Fifty-one percent (51%) of Americans say more government regulation of tobacco is
at least somewhat likely to reduce the number of smokers in this country. That
figure includes 18% who say it is very likely to do so.

I'm not exactly sure how more government regulation is going to reduce the number of smokers in this country. As a result, I have mixed feelings about this. I feel that people should be free to do what they want, as long as they aren't hurting anyone. The problem with smoking is that it does hurt others, and maybe even more than the smoker—second hand smoking can be worse than first hand smoke when inhaled in copious amounts. They say that two hours of inhaling second hand smoke is the equivalent to smoking four cigarettes. I don't know how true this is, but I find it hard not to believe it.

I've never smoked, but have always had bad allergies. The smoking bothers me, probably more than the average person. I'm easily irritated when being around smokers, in the smallest amounts of time. Walking by a building where someone is standing by and lighting up can quickly flare an allergy attack. Headache, itchy eyes, stuffy nose, and fatigue are all the symptoms. I've been around smokers all of my life and the longer I am exposed to it, the worse my health is. I recently lived in a second floor apartment, above two smokers on the first floor. I'd go out during the day, come home at night and the apartment smelled like a barroom. It literally smelled as if my neighbors were smoking in my apartment. After fifteen months of living there, I couldn't take it any longer. I have since found another place to live and my health is noticeably better, but I still feel as if I've developed a case of mild asthma.

Several states have taken some “regulatory” measures regarding smoking such as banning smoking in public places, restaurants, public buildings, etc. I stand by these measures. People should be allowed to enjoy a meal in peace without being aggravated by cigarette smoke. And before someone says there's smoking and non smoking sections—that's bullshit. The smoke is everywhere. Now some might argue that smokers should be able to enjoy a meal and light up as well. Well if they want to do that, then I guess they should eat at home. Though, I fail to see how one can eat and puff it up at the same time. Even the smoking outside of public buildings is aggravating to those with allergies, and asthma who are innocently walking by.

I'm not sure what further regulations the government has in store for cigarette smoke. I know some wish that cigarettes were banned altogether. Sometimes I think that's a good idea, but I know I am biased. I also know that prohibition won't solve the problem. Marijuana is illegal, but that doesn't stop people from smoking it. Alcohol was illegal at one time, but that didn't stop people from drinking it. In a perfect world, these smokers would have the courtesy to smoke with each other, or alone, for that matter, and away from others who are easily irritated by their cigarette smoke. And in that perfect world, people would understand the harmful effects of smoking and wouldn't smoke at all. But alas, this is not a perfect world.

Voters Now Trust Republicans More than Democrats on Economic Issues

Voters now trust Republicans more than Democrats on six out of 10 key issues, including the top issue of the economy.

The latest Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey finds that 45% now trust the GOP more to handle economic issues, while 39% trust Democrats more.

This is the first time in over two years of polling that the GOP has held the advantage on this issue. The parties were close in May, with the Democrats holding a modest 44% to 43% edge. The latest survey was taken just after General Motors announced it was going into bankruptcy as part of a deal brokered by the Obama administration that gives the government majority ownership of the failing automaker.

Voters not affiliated with either party now trust the GOP more to handle economic issues by a two-to-one margin.

Separate Rasmussen tracking shows that the economy remains the top issue among voters in terms of importance.

Republicans also now hold a six-point lead on the issue of government ethics and corruption, the second most important issue to all voters and the top issue among unaffiliated voters. That shows a large shift from May, when Democrats held an 11-point lead on the issue.

This isn't really surprising, is it? Five months into Obama's presidency, three years of a Democratic controlled congress, and still no light at the end of the tunnel. Things have gone downhill since the Democrats have been in charge. And getting worse as the time passes. Methinks the American people will grow impatient and disgusted with the goings on in Washington and will be looking for change in 2010. And in 2012. The change they voted for in 2008 isn't the change they were looking for after all.

When will the right change come? Change for change sake isn't really for the better, is it?

Of course, nothing is going to change. Things will get a lot worse before they get better. I expect that. The American people will grow impatient and will make the two major political parties play musical chairs. And that's alright. I enjoy that. When will they finally see that they are really jerking themselves off and are being played? The politicians don't give a fuck about you. They are in it for themselves. They don't work for you, they work for themselves. You might think they work for you, but you fail to see the big picture. If you really want them to work for you, then vote out all incumbents in the next election. Show these fucks you mean business. And in the election after that, if you're not satifisfied, vote those fucks out too. Maybe that will really change things. Maybe. Or maybe not. But hell, beats having the same old, do-nothing fucks in Washington for thirty fucking years.

People Choose News That Fits Their Views

People Choose News That Fits Their Views

News readers gorge on media messages that fit their pre-existing views, rather than graze on a wider range of perspectives. In other words, they consume what they agree with, researchers say.

The finding comes out of a recent study which tracked how college students spent their time reading media articles on hot-button issues such as abortion or gun ownership.

Unsurprisingly, students gravitated toward articles that supported their views.

"The idea has been around for a very long time, but it has just never been proven," said Silvia Knobloch-Westerwick, a communications researcher at Ohio State University. "It's just considered textbook knowledge or lay common sense."

That preference for similar views may also influence hardcore political junkies who prefer to read blogs with strong political views, according to separate research.

However, researchers still don't know how individual uncertainty about political views affects time spent reading one side or the other. And on the flipside, individuals most confident in their political stance may actually seek out opposing views to read.

News that fits your views

Previous studies have asked people about their news reading habits and broad political beliefs, such as liberal or conservative.

But the new Ohio State study took that a step further by observing how 156 college students spent five minutes reading online magazine articles on a computer. The computer recorded the time each student spent looking at pro and con articles about four issues that included abortion, gun ownership, health care and minimum wage.

"A survey isn't the greatest way to get hold of issues," Knobloch-Westerwick told LiveScience. "In my study, we just had people click on things so that we could watch unobtrusively."

As a result, she found that participants spent 36 percent more time reading articles that agreed with their point of view. They had a 58 percent chance of choosing articles that supported their views, as opposed to a 43 percent chance of choosing an article that challenged their view.

Students also commonly spent time reading both sides on any given issue, according to the study, which is detailed in the June issue of the journal Communication Research. However, very few clicked just on articles that opposed their views.

How political junkies read

Only 5 percent of online news readers go to political blogs on a daily basis, according to a new book by a different researcher, yet many represent the most politically active consumers of the news.

Such readers may prefer blogs over mainstream media sources because they suspect bias in the latter, said Richard Davis, a political scientist at Brigham Young University in Utah.

"They're clearly disenchanted with traditional media," Davis said. "That's why they read blogs in the first place - in their view, they see blogs as more accurate."

Davis worked with several independent firms to conduct nationally representative public opinion surveys of both political blog readers and journalists for his book, "Typing Politics" (Oxford University Press, 2009). He also focused on seven of the top political blogs, which at the time included Daily Kos on the left and Michelle Malkin on the right.

Such political blogs are up front with their political views, and typically "echo" the news reported by traditional journalists while adding their own spin or analysis.

But among the hardcore political junkies, 30 percent told the survey that blogs are more accurate, whereas only 8 percent said traditional media was more accurate. About 40 percent gave equal marks to both.

This trust in blogs over traditional media does not carry over to general readers, Davis cautioned. Less frequent blog readers usually give equal weight to blogs and traditional media. And overall, general readers still put more faith in traditional media.

Conservatives buck the trend

Some findings from both researchers suggest that individual confidence and certainty play a role in what people choose to read.

People with stronger party affiliation, conservative political views, and greater interest in politics proved more likely to click on articles with opposing views, according to the Ohio State study.

"It appears that people with these characteristics are more confident in their views and so they're more inclined to at least take a quick look at the counterarguments," Knobloch-Westerwick noted.

However, Knobloch-Westerwick added that her latest study was not designed to assess reader motives, and that she hopes to more carefully study the issue in the future.

The Brigham Young University survey found that journalists also tended to read liberal blogs - perhaps a reflection of journalists' political beliefs, although even conservatives said liberal blogs were often better-written, Davis pointed out.

Among the political blog readers, a similar trend emerged in which "liberals read almost exclusively liberal blogs, but conservatives tend to read both," Davis said.

Davis offered another possible explanation for this trend among blog readers. Conservative views dominate talk radio, and so conservatives may feel more satisfied by that outlet and are willing to check out opposing views on blogs.

By contrast, liberal views dominate the blogosphere, but are scant on talk radio.

Winning hearts and minds ... or not

The big question that remains is whether consuming all this news affects or changes people's views, or simply hardens original beliefs.

Experts have fretted for a while about how people tend to read only what agrees with them. But current research suggests that it's amazing that people ever change their views, Knobloch-Westerwick said.

Some researchers have even begun examining how political leanings are rooted in biology, and the combined influences of genetics or life experiences. A separate recent study suggests that men with more daughters are more likely to take a liberal point of view, while women who have more sons may lean more conservative.

Still, having hardened political views bolstered by media messages might not represent all bad news for a democratic society.

"People who spend more time with messages that bolster their views are more likely to engage in political action, something that's very desirable from a democratic point of view," Knobloch-Westerwick said.

What fun is it to only read articles and blogs that adhere to your views? I don't know about you, but I like to hear what everyone has to say. Whether I agree with them or not. I find their opinions interesting. Reading only one side of the political spectrum I find boring. It does make sense, however, that those who aren't secure in their views would only want to read one side or the other.

NH becomes 6th state to legalize gay marriage

Gay marriage bill signed into law in New Hampshire

CONCORD, N.H. – New Hampshire became the sixth state to legalize gay marriage Wednesday in a move that reflects the state's changing demographics from reliably Republican and conservative to younger and more liberal.

The Senate and House passed key language on religious rights, Gov. John Lynch — who personally opposes gay marriage — signed the legislation Wednesday afternoon.

Lynch, a Democrat, had promised a veto if the law didn't clearly spell out that churches and religious groups would not be forced to officiate at gay marriages or provide other services. Legislators made the changes.

"Today, we are standing up for the liberties of same-sex couples by making clear that they will receive the same rights, responsibilities — and respect — under New Hampshire law," Lynch said.

Massachusetts, Connecticut, Maine, Vermont and Iowa already allow gay marriage, though opponents hope to overturn Maine's law with a public vote.

This is awesome. Way to go New Hampshire!!

To the opponents of gay marriage: fuck you. Just because you hate homosexuals and don't agree with gay marriage doesn't mean you should get to dictate what rights they should and shouldn't have. What you think shouldn't matter at all. No one gives a shit what you think. And before you start bringing out the bible bullshit, let me inform you of this: marriage has shit to do with religion. All marriage is, legally, is a piece of paper. Got that? There are many legal reasons for gay couples to get married just as there is for straight couples. Ok? So leave your precious religion out of this. It's not even an issue. If the church doesn't wanna marry two homosexuals, then they shouldn't have to. It's their choice. No one has to be religious to get married anyway, so it shouldn't even be an issue.

I don't understand the opposition to gay marriage at all. If two people, regardless of gender, love each other, then what is it to you? How does that bother you? Why does it bother you? I don't get it. Only answer I can come up with is: hatred.

Gay marriage shouldn't have been on the ballot in California or anywhere else for that matter. Who is the majority to decide what rights the minority should have? I'm hoping that all of these states are able to remain "gay-friendly" and that the homophobes won't overturn the legislation like they did in California. California voting against gay marriage really surprised me. I mean, it is one of the most liberal states in the country. Are Californians fucking retarded? Do they realize what they've done? Their state is in fiscal ruin and they don't realize how gay marriage could benefit their economy and the state's bank book. They have no idea. Instead, they let their hatred rule over all. It's sad. Really sad.

Earth Day

Earth Day makes me laugh. Every day should be Earth day. And it would be if anyone really gave a shit. But they don't and they know it, so they come up with a day like today to "show" how much they care.

Bunch of hypocrites.

Well, happy Hypocrite Day.

Drug-related violence/Texas secedes from Union

30% Say U.S. Drug Use To Blame For Growing Violence in Mexico

Just 30% of U.S. voters say drug users in the United States are more to blame for
growing drug violence in Mexico than the drug producers themselves. Fifty-six percent
(56%) say the Mexican drug producers are more to blame for the tide of violence
that threatens to cross into the United States, according to a new Rasmussen Reports
national telephone survey.

No, it is stupid ass laws right here in the United States that is the culprit of all the violence on the border and in Mexico. Why the fuck can't you people see that? Legalize, and regulate these drugs and watch the fucking violence decrease you stupid motherfuckers. But no, you'd rather have the government babysit everything and everyone. It's fucking bullshit. If someone wants to smoke a joint, then that's their right as an American citizen. This country was founded on liberty, was it not? Smoking a joint isn't hurting anyone. People need to take responsibility for themselves and stop looking to the government for a fucking babysitter. Goddammit.

In Texas, 31% Say State Has Right to Secede From U.S., But 75% Opt To Stay Thirty-one percent (31%) of Texas voters say that their state has the right to secede from the United States and form an independent country.

However, the latest Rasmussen Reports poll in the state finds that if the matter was put to a vote, it wouldn't even be close. Three-fourths (75%) of Lone Star State voters would opt to remain in the United States. Only 18% would vote to secede, and seven percent (7%) are not sure what they'd choose.

Of course they have a right to secede from the union. And I fucking hope they exercise that right. This country needs some radical fucking change. Maybe it will wake the assholes in Washington up and all the brain dead fucking citizens who would rather play with their toys than hold their government accountable for the assfucking they've been receiving all these years.

But I'm not holding my breath.

Rasmussen Reports April 16

Voters Don't Rank Immigration As A Priority Issue

Despite reports that President Obama plans to begin a push for immigration reform,
voters rank it fifth out of five priorities he has proposed this year in the latest
Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey. Forty-one percent (41%) now see deficit reduction as the top priority while 26%
see health care reform as most important. Eleven percent (11%) say the search for
new energy sources should be the most important objective, followed by nine percent
(9%) who say the president's educational goals are their top concern.

Why does everyone want to hide under the bed when it comes to illegal immigration? No one wants to do anything about it or even talk about it. If you're against illegal immigration you're marked as a racist. Ridiculous, isn't it? It's called ILLEGAL immigration for a reason. Aren't we supposed to be law abiding citizens? Then why do we let these people come into our country illegally and not prosecute them? I don't understand it. I really don't.

On Immigration, Large Gap Remains Between Mainstream America and Political Class

Sixty-six percent (66%) of likely voters nationwide say it is Very Important for
the government to improve its enforcement of the borders and reduce illegal
immigration. However, the latest Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey found
that just 32% of America?s Political Class agrees.

Interesting. Yet they think illegal immigration isn't a priority issue. What a bunch of bullshit.

72% Want More Military Action Against Pirates

Seventy-two percent (72%) of U.S. voters say the United States should take more
military action to prevent further piracy against American and other ships off
Africas east coast. Twelve percent (12%) are opposed to any further U.S. military
action against the pirates, and 16% are not sure, according to a new Rasmussen
Reports national telephone survey.

Military action? What the fuck kind of military action? Why don't we allow these ships to defend themselves against pirates? They are out there on the water as lame ducks. Then you wonder why they get fucking attacked.

Latest Generic Ballot Shows Republicans and Democrats in a Dead Heat

Support for the Democrats fell two points this week, while support for the GOP candidates fell one point. Last week, the Democrats were ahead by just a 40% to 39% margin.

Good. Americans are getting tired of the liberalism so they're going to turn to the conservatives. I love it. It's great fun watching the two parties play musical chairs.

Today is the day you've all been waiting for. It's the day Uncle Sam gives you the annual assfucking. Hopefully he'll use lube to ease the pain. I wish you all the best and hope some of you can enjoy it.

I'm back...

Hey everyone, I'm back. I know I haven't posted in awhile and I apologize for that. I've been busy with other things. I also haven't been returning Entrecard drops, and I apologize for that, too. The damn Entrecard toolbar has been pissing me off because it won't remember my login. As of late, the effort of logging into the Entrecard toolbar has been too much effort. I can never remember the goddamn password and keep having to search through emails to find it. Lately, the computer has been driving me up the wall with its bullshit. It's lucky it doesn't find itself on the other side of my office window.

Rasmussen Reports:

Here are some articles from Rasmussen that I have been meaning to report on, but haven't got around to them, until now.

This is the latest one:

76% Oppose Federal Bailout of Ailing Life Insurance CompaniesOppose Federal Bailout of Ailing Life Insurance Companies
Oppose Federal Bailout of Ailing Life Insurance Companies
Add one more government bailout to the list opposed by most Americans.
Seventy-six percent (76%) of adults say "no" to using federal funds to bail out
troubled life insurance companies, according to a new Rasmussen Reports national
telephone survey.
Just 12% favor the idea, and another 12% are not sure.
Investors (80%) are even more strongly opposed.

No more fucking bailouts goddamnit. I am TIRED Of this shit. Don't give a bail out to these insurance companies, especially, they are the biggest thieves around and have been robbing tax payers blind for years. FUCK THEM. Let them rot.

For Most Americans, Easter Is An Important Holiday
Fifty-three percent (53%) of Americans say Easter is one of the nation's most important
holidays, according to a new Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey. That's
up seven points from a year ago. Just seven percent (7%) consider it one of the
least important holidays, and 38% say it's somewhere in between the most important
and the least important.

As far as I am concerned, it's just another bullshit holiday. One in which makes dentists rich, just like Valentine's and Halloween. It's probably the second most useless holiday next to Christmas. I think it is sad that there's only a handful of days a year in which we are required to remember the ones we love. If you need a holiday to fucking remember that then there is something wrong with you.

66% of Americans Say Their Vote Counts in Elections

Two-thirds of American adults nationwide (66%) say their vote really matters on
Election Day.

And most Americans are fucking stupid. If their voice really matters on Election day, why the fuck do they pick these goddamn clowns who run for office and then constantly bitch about politicians? It's their fault they elected these clowns and they are responsible for what they fuck up. They won't admit that they were wrong for voting for such and such a candidate so they make up a bullshit phrase like this: "If you don't vote, you have no right to complain." Bullshit. Those who don't vote have the right to complain because of the mess your vote created and have every reason to fucking bitch and moan. If they didn't vote, it's because they didn't like what their choices are, so why fault them for not voting? Supposedly, it's everyone's right to vote, and it is their right to decide whether they want to or not so let them alone.

55% Oppose Eliminating Deductions As A Trade-off for Lower Tax Rates

Good. I've been saying this all along. Eliminate these fucking deductions and lower the tax rate and watch the government bring in more revenue. Wait. Did that say they opposed lower taxes? What are they fucking stupid? I guess they don't want to pay taxes and all, and I don't blame them for that, but christ...there's way too many tax loopholes. Close them up and lower the tax rates and everyone will be happier. Mark my words. But that won't happen, of course, so don't fucking worry.

Just 53% Say Capitalism Better Than Socialism

Only 53% of American adults believe capitalism is better than socialism.
The latest Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey found that 20% disagree and
say socialism is better. Twenty-seven percent (27%) are not sure which is better.
Adults under 30 are essentially evenly divided: 37% prefer capitalism, 33% socialism,
and 30% are undecided. Thirty-somethings are a bit more supportive of the free-enterprise
approach with 49% for capitalism and 26% for socialism. Adults over 40 strongly
favor capitalism, and just 13% of those older Americans believe socialism is better.

I wonder if the ones that support socialism are the Obamabots?

Only 45% Think They Pay More Than Their Share In Taxes

Just 45% of U.S. voters now think they pay more than their fair share of taxes,
the lowest finding on this question since regular tracking began last July. This
number has fallen below 50% just once since Election Day. Thirty-one percent (31%)
do not believe they pay their fair share of taxes and 24% are not sure, according
to the latest Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey.

I wonder what the incomes were of all of these people?

Just 54% Say Their Home Worth More Than The Mortgage

The number of U.S. homeowners who say their house is worth more than the amount they
still owe on their mortgage is down seven points since December. Fifty-four percent
54%) now say their house is valued for more than they owe, according to a new
Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey.

So what? You borrowed the money and still need to pay it back, so stop whining. The house values will go back up, they always do.

57% Want Military Response to North Korea Missile Launch

Fifty-seven percent (57%) of U.S. voters nationwide favor a military response to
eliminate North Korea's missile launching capability. The latest Rasmussen Reports
national telephone survey shows that just 15% of voters oppose a military response
while 28% are not sure. North Korea defied international pressure and launched a
missile last night. Officials from that country claim a satellite was placed in
orbit. U.S. defense officials confirm that a missile was launched but that no object
was placed in orbit.

What a bunch of warmongers we are in this country. I bet these are the same people that supported the invasion of Iraq and then flip flopped when they realized what a bad fucking decision it was.

This one is my fucking favorite:

75% Oppose Release of Guantanamo Inmates in the United States

President Obama's intelligence chief said last week that some inmates at the
Guantanamo terrorist prison camp may be released in the United States, but just 13%
of U.S. voters think that should be allowed.

I'm glad that most Americans have some fucking sense. Finally. I know the thought of torture isn't great, but if it keeps this country safe and helps us "defeat" the terrorists, then you do what you have to do. We haven't had an attack on this country in the last 7 years of Bush's presidency, so he must have been doing something right.

These detainees have no fucking rights. They are terrorists for fuck sake. Why should they be allowed our rights when they aren't even fucking citizens? The insanity of the liberals is unbelievable. No wonder people think you're pussies.

Well that's all I have to report on now. If something else pisses me off, you'll be sure to hear about it.

Have a good day, all.

One-Out-of-Seven Favor 90% Tax Rate for Millionaires

One-Out-of-Seven Favor 90% Tax Rate for Millionaires

Just one-out-of-seven Americans (14%) would like to see a 90% tax rate on earnings
above a million dollars a year. The latest Rasmussen Reports national telephone
survey finds that 74% are opposed to such a high tax rate for the nation's highest
earners. Eighty-five percent (85%) of Republicans oppose the 90% tax rate, along
with 66% of Democrats and 72% of those not affiliated with either major party.

I'm all for someone paying their fair share in taxes, but you have to agree that 90% is way more than their fair share. It's the socialism that the Republicans accused Obama of advocating when he only supported a measly 3-4% increase in taxes -- the same rate of the Clinton years. They shouldn't bitch, that tax rate is lower than it was when their savior -- Ronald Reagan was president. The tax rate right now, is what, 36%? Obama is gonna raise it to 39%? The highest tax rate I'd support would be 50%. I don't care how much you earn, if the government came along and took half of your earnings away I'm sure you'd be pissed, right? But I don't know what word to describe what I'd be if the government came along and took 90% of my earnings...that's just plain robbery.

And speaking of tax hikes....I found this interesting: More Voters Than Ever Say Tax Cuts Help the Economy

Now I don't adhere to any ideology. I believe in doing what's right. In a faltering economy, I don't think raising taxes is the right thing to do - to anyone. When and (a minor if) the economy gets going again, and is strong, then I'd support raising taxes, but only then.

Now before I get called a right-winger like I have been called already today...I just told you, I don't adhere to an ideology. I don't believe in the right wing ways of doing things or the left ways of doing things. Sure, there's some policies on both sides of the aisle that I find appealing, but I do not "belong" to either side. I am a registered independent. Always have been and always will be. I don't care which side of the aisle you cling to, if you do something that I don't like I am going to bash you for it. I won't kiss either side's ass. You both suck in my humble opinion and have done nothing but bring this country down further into the hellhole it is in. The fun part is sitting and watching you two blame each other for it. You're both to fucking blame. I would say that you should work together to fix things -- but history shows that really isn't a good idea, either. When you guys work together, the American people get a double fucking up the ass. So yeah, every 4-8 years you guys take turns in fucking the American people up the ass and that's fine...just as long as it isn't a bipartisan fuckeroo.

Now, I hope I cleared things up. If not, let me know in the comments.

30% Say Government Should Limit Pay for Athletes and Movie Stars

30% Say Government Should Limit Pay for Athletes and Movie Stars

While a great deal of public anger is focused at corporate executives these days,
Johnny Depp and the Boys of Summer don't fare much better. Thirty percent (30%) of
Americans believe the government should make it illegal to pay movie stars and
athletes more than $1 million per year.

This is ridiculous. Now I agree that movie stars and athletes are overpaid, but having government come in to wipe them out is bullshit. It's not like they don't pay taxes. The more they make, the more they pay in taxes.

Who are the 30% that support something like this? They're a bunch of idiots in my humble opinion.

I just added a Cuss-O-Meter to the blog. It supposedly analyzes each post in this blog and determines how much of it contains cuss words. I'm rather disappointed. According to the Cuss-O-Meter, only 24.2% of this blog contains cuss words. Only 24.2%! The meter claims 24.% is high, but it ain't high enough for me. Especially since the average cuss level is 369%!

This is 93% LESS than other websites who took this test.

I guess I am gonna have to work on bringing up the score.

Anyway, if you want the Cuss-O-Meter for your own blog/website, grab it here:

If you do add it to your site, please come back here and let me know what your score is, leave a link back to your site and I will check it out for myself :)

This is what I'm fucking talking about

Today's post comes from Phuck Politics. I encourage you to check out that site for more great posts like this...


Stick beating

Why can't we do this shit?
Pakistan's opposition leader defied house arrest on Sunday to join anti-government protests that quickly descended into violence and chaos, with running battles between stone-throwing protesters and police.

Smashed windows. Torched tires. Throwing stones. Beating people with sticks. These motherfuckers know how to stage a goddamn protest.

And what drove them to this? Was it because their country was being overran by a bunch of business assholes? Were they forced to use their hard earn money to bailout their financial industry? Was their government allowing corporations to give bonuses using their money?

Fuck no. All this awesome shit went down because they wanted a judge reinstated.

So why don't we do that here? Why aren't we taking to the streets? Why aren't we burning tires and chase down police officers with sticks? Why aren't we screaming at the top of our lungs over how bad our government is butt fucking us?

Because we're pussies.

We would rather sit in our overpriced houses, watch over expensive Blu-Ray DVDs, eat large quantities of unhealthy fast food, and cry ourselves to sleep. We make excuses like, "I can't make a difference." and "The government's too big for a person like me to change." and "What can I do? I'm just a big fat cum stain."

What a bunch of horseshit.

We've become a nation of pussies. We worry more about men fucking other men and our stupid fucking gun laws, than we do about the Wall Street cunts stealing our money.

That's why I'm glad our economy is failing. That's why I'm excited to turn on the news and see some crazy asshole kill a bunch of random people. That's why I'm happy to hear about bridges collapsing during rush hour traffic. That's why my dick gets hard when I read about governors cutting education funding because they want to prove some kind of point.

I'm glad our country is falling into chaos because you lazy, cock sucking assholes deserve it.

You're the ones who elected Ronald Reagan, George H. W. Bush, and George W. Bush. You're the ones who are responsible for the deregulation that has gone on on Wall Street since the 1980's. You're the reason why future generations will be forced to suck some white guy's dick for five dollars.

So I can't wait until you walk in on your little Suzie getting jizzed on by a pack of middle-aged Wall Street executives so she can put food on your goddamn table since you lost your job due to outsourcing - you fucking piece of deserve it.

Spring is here

Spring is here. Well, actually, spring has been here in Arizona for the past three weeks or so. Everything is budding and it's getting warmer...and I can't stop sneezing and blowing my nose. It's been three weeks of spring and I am tired of it. I can't wait until it's over. For the rest of you who don't suffer from seasonal allergies and do enjoy the spring, well I wish you a happy spring. As for me and the rest of the allergy sufferers, we shall remain miserable. Though, I suppose I shouldn't speak for the rest of the allergy sufferers, but I know I am and will remain miserable until this bloody spring springs into summer.

79% Support U.S. Troops on the Border to Fight Drug Violence

According to Rasmussen...

79% Support U.S. Troops on the Border to Fight Drug Violence

Seventy-nine percent (79%) of U.S. voters now say the military should be used along
the border with Mexico to protect American citizens if drug-related violence
continues to grow in that area. This marks a 21-point jump in support for the use
of the U.S. military along the border in just two months.

All I have to say about this is....legalize these drugs and you'll see the drug-related violence decrease. Common sense people. Or is it uncommon sense? Because common sense doesn't seem to be too common anymore.

Bad News for Democrats

According to Rasmussen...

Support for the Democratic Congressional candidates fell to a new low over the past week, allowing the GOP to move slightly head for the first time in recent years in the Generic Congressional Ballot.

The latest Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey found that 41% said they would vote for their district’s Republican candidate while 39% would choose the Democrat.

Investors now favor Republicans by a 46% to 36% margin, while non-investors would vote Democratic by a 45% to 33% margin.


If this keeps up, Democrats are gonna be in trouble in 2010 and 2012. I may even vote for the Republican candidate for President in 2012 myself if Obama keeps showing his hypocrisy and succeeds in being a hypocrite. Let this be a warning to you Obama and the Dems. Get your shit together and govern from the center or else you will face casualties in the next 2-4 years.

Things Are Looking Up

According to Rasmussen...

Consumer Confidence Reaches Highest Level Since November

After five days of steady gains, consumer confidence is now at its highest level
of 2009. In fact, confidence is now at the highest level since the morning after
Barack Obama was elected President in November.
The Rasmussen Consumer Index, which measures consumer confidence on a daily basis,
moved up another point on Sunday to 67.0.

I guess things are starting to look up. Now who will take the credit? Will it be President George Bush or will it be President Obama? What do you think?

I don't really care either way. As long as things start to get better and we can see the light at the end of the tunnel, it's alright by me.

Obama Administration Is Open to Taxing Health Benefits

WASHINGTON — The Obama administration is signaling to Congress that the president could support taxing some employee health benefits, as several influential lawmakers and many economists favor, to help pay for overhauling the health care system.

The proposal is politically problematic for President Obama, however, since it is similar to one he denounced in the presidential campaign as “the largest middle-class tax increase in history.” Most Americans with insurance get it from their employers, and taxing workers for the benefit is opposed by union leaders and some businesses.

In television advertisements last fall, Mr. Obama criticized his Republican rival for the presidency, Senator John McCain of Arizona, for proposing to tax all employer-provided health benefits. The benefits have long been tax-free, regardless of how generous they are or how much an employee earns. The advertisements did not point out that Mr. McCain, in exchange, wanted to give all families a tax credit to subsidize the purchase of coverage.


What a fucking hypocrite. Fuck you, Obama. Keep this shit up and you can kiss 2012 goodbye.
