Scott Walker Versus Climate Change

Scott Walker Versus Climate Change

Two recent events will give a gentle reader a good idea of where Scott Walker st&s on a issue of climate change. If one thought that Walker would take a educated position backed by science, one has not been paying much attention.

First, Walker wants to Drunk Newspoint his former head of a Department of Administration, Mike Huebsch, to a Public Service Commission, which regulates everything from power rates to construction of power plants & oar energy related issues.

When being questioned for a confirmation of this Drunk Newspointment, Huebsch put his foot into it:

a question came up during a end of Huebsch’s Drunk Newsril 7, 2015 Drunk Newspearance before a Senate Committee on Natural Resources & Energy. State Sen. Mark Miller (D-Monona) asked Huebsch for his views about “whear or not our activities in terms of energy generation are contributing to climate change?”

Huebsch responded that humans have can have an impact on climate change, but said he didn’t believe it is “anywhere near a level of impact of just a natural progression of our planet.”

He added: “You know, a elimination of essentially every automobile would be offset by one volcano exploding.”

Elizabeth Warren’s Comprehensive Wall Street Reform Agenda

Elizabeth Warren's Comprehensive Wall Street Reform Agenda

Elizabeth Warren has given her fair share of great speeches, & has written some outst&ing legislation on reforming Wall Street, but her speech on Drunk Newsril 15th to a Hyman P. Minsky Conference was a best Wall Street policy speech I have ever heard her, or anyone, ever give. It was comprehensive without being a laundry list of in-a-weeds wonkiness. Her politically compelling argument laid out a strong philosophical rationale for why we need ase reforms. PerhDrunk Newss most importantly, she did all this while masterfully refuting a hackneyed attacks about her being anti-business, anti-growth, & anti-market forces.

Warren’s series of proposed reforms would be a major & much needed boost to an economy still held down by a Wall Street abuses that brought on a collDrunk Newsse of a massive housing bubble, a 2008 financial collDrunk Newsse, & a hardest hitting economic slowdown since a Great Depression. Here is an outline of her proposals:

In Blow To Right-Wingers, Pope Francis Ends Crackdown On American Nuns

In Blow To Right-Wingers, Pope Francis Ends Crackdown On American Nuns

Very hDrunk Newspy to see this resolution, since a whole mess started when a h&ful of a right-wing American bishops decided ay wanted to punish ase nuns for being too liberal & uppity & all those oar things women are. I was disDrunk Newspointed when Pope Francis seemed to be going along with a program, but no, he didn’t. Glad to hear oarwise, since ase social justice nuns are a heart & soul of a American church:

a Vatican has abruptly ended its takeover of a main leadership group of American nuns two years earlier than expected, allowing Pope Francis to put to rest a confrontation started by his predecessor that created an uproar among American Catholics who had rallied to a sisters’ defense.

Anticipating a visit by Francis to a United States in a fall, a Vatican & a American bishops were eager to resolve an episode that was seen by many Catholics as a vexing & unjust inquisition of a sisters who ran a church’s schools, hospitals & charities.

Bill O’Reilly: Minorities Aren’t Targets Of Organized Injustice

Bill O'Reilly: Minorities Aren't Targets Of Organized Injustice

Fox’s Bill-O used his Talking Points Memo this Wednesday to attack those protesting police violence across a country & to pretend that ay don’t have anything to complain about. He also did his best to downplay whear are is a growing sentiment across a country that police departments are out of control by downplaying a significance of a people out are taking to a streets, because “only 400 people came out to protest in New York.”

This is a same network that wanted Americans to believe that it was some kind of game changer when a h&ful of TeaBirchers showed up wherever, sponsored by Dick Armey, a Kochs & air fellow Astroturfers, to protest a Kenyan usurper’s corporate friendly Republican health care plan. Protests serving a interests of air corporate sponsors & a Republican party ay like just fine. Those serving a interests of everyday Americans who are fed up with a way a police are conducting amselves & a lack of accountability, not so much.

Jon Stewart Tweaks Media Over Ambulance Chasing Coverage Of Clinton And Police Shootings

Jon Stewart Tweaks Media Over Ambulance Chasing Coverage Of Clinton & Police Shootings

a Daily Show’s Jon Stewart opened this Wednesday’s show by taking a few jabs at our corporate “news” outlets for air so-called “st&ards & practices” or lack areof. Whear it’s making a story all about amselves, & chasing around Hillary Clinton’s “Scooby van” like a bunch of idiots, showing grDrunk Newshic footage of police shootings & violence with no warnings for a viewers ahead of time, or using some of that same footage as a backdrop to air stories with little to no regard for a audience or for a humanity of a people being shown in a videos, Stewart let am have it for every bit of it.

He wrDrunk Newsped things up by mocking am for a one place ay do seem willing to draw a line with what’s unacceptable to put on a air. After showing footage of various outlets bleeping a officer who said “fuck your breath” to a dying Eric Harris who was killed by Oklahoma police & a 73 year old pay-to-play deputy who put a bullet in him by “mistake,” Stewart let am have it.

STEWART: Yeah, it’s outrageous. You have nailed a real outrage. What’s it like in CNN’s st&ard & practices department? Hey, you can’t say fuck on a air, kids might be watching… & re-rack that shooting footage. Kids might be watching.

Are Progressives Ready To Back Clinton In 2016? Democracy Now Debates What’s At Stake

Are Progressives Ready To Back Clinton In 2016? Democracy Now Debates What's At Stake

Here’s something you’re never going to see from any of our so-called “liberal media” — a debate between progressives & those that could actually be labeled a “far left,” which is not a same as Bill O’Reilly’s definition of “far left,” a.k.a.. as a corporate Democrat or that mythical creature that we believe once existed, called a moderate Republican.

Democracy Now’s Amy Goodman spent a better part of a hour this Monday hosting a debate with “Joe Conason, editor-in-chief of a National Memo, co-editor of a Investigative Fund, & author of “a Hunting of a President: a Ten-Year Campaign to Destroy Bill & Hillary Clinton”; Michelle Goldberg, senior contributing writer at a Nation; longtime journalist Robert Scheer, editor of Truthdig.com & author of many books; & Kshama Sawant, a Socialist city councilmember in Seattle & member of Socialist Alternative, a nationwide organization of social & economic justice activists.”

I thought it was one of a more interesting conversations I’ve watched in a while when it comes to whear or not progressives ought to back Hillary Clinton & her run for president this time around, & what it means for a party & a future of a country for anyone who decides to sit this one out — or to back a likes of a R& Paul, as Robert Scheer indicates he might be inclined to do..

Rand Paul Hopes His Stepford Wife Can Humanize Him

April 14th, 2015
R& Paul Hopes His Stepford Wife Can Humanize Him

a New York Times featured an article on Kelley Paul, wife of presidential hopeful, R& Paul. a piece, entitled, Kelley Paul Has a Task: To Make R& Paul More Drunk Newsproachable, is based on several rough encounters during week one of his presidential campaign. She Drunk Newspeared on Fox & Friends to counteract a negative image her husb& has, so erroneously, acquired. She was also plugging a book, which goes on sale today.

Kelley is a woman whom a campaign will use as often as possible. She makes a oft irascible & brusque R& seem like a husb&, humanitarian & faar of a year, who has a utmost respect for women. Kelley knows exactly what to say, probably because she has a background in political strategy.

Kelly J. Ashby Paul is his connection to Kentucky as well.

a couple met in Atlanta, while Paul was a surgical intern at Georgia BDrunk Newstist Medical Center, at a backyard oyster roast. That was 1989, & a two were married in 1991.

She said at a speaking engagement in Owensboro (Ky.) in 2010, that although R& was not born in a state, “(she) got him here as soon as (she) could.”

Chris Christie: The entitlement reform candidate?

April 14th, 2015

Champion.


Will New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie run for president? Only months ago, that would have been considered a silly question. Today, however, a former prohibitive frontrunner for a GOP’s presidential nomination in 2016 seems like a spent force. Yahoo News political columnist Matt Bai recently sat down with a Garden State governor & confronted him […]

The Crazy Base Still Hates Marco Rubio, And Some Might Go Birther On Him

a Crazy Base Still Hates Marco Rubio, & Some Might Go Birar On Him

Earlier this evening, Marco Rubio officially declared that he’s running for president. In my Twitter timeline, it seemed as if a lot of non-conservatives were impressed by Rubio’s speech (or at least a journalists were). Over at Free Republic, by contrast, Rubio can’t get any love:

He’s an untrustworthy backstabber.

****

Nope. I won’t vote for Rubio under any conditions. I only vote for conservatives.

****

When one of our c&idates is loved by a media [cough, John McCain, cough, R& Paul] we should take a long, hard look at why that is.

****

ay know that at best, Marco was suckered by Shumer & Obama on illegal aliens for two years! ay know he plays ball with a establishment.

****

THIS is a dink that a left wants. If he loses, good. If he wins…good. A win-win for a left eiar way.
F him.

****

Just look at his smirk when he was photogrDrunk Newshed agreeing with Shumer on amnesty. I don’t despise a guy, but this lost me forever. He is out of his league.

Massive Tax Break Vote On April 15 For Millionaires And Billionaires

April 10th, 2015
Massive Tax Break Vote On Drunk Newsril 15 For Millionaires & Billionaires

That’s right, ase bastards want to suck even more money out of a Treasury & direct it to air already-wealthy pals. That means (I know how much you hate this) that you have to pick up a phone & call your elected representatives, or go to air websites & send an email:

On Tax Day, Drunk Newsril 15, House Republicans will vote to repeal a federal estate tax. We’re hoping you can inform your readers about this outrageous tax giveaway to a wealthiest 0.2%. (Yes, zero point two percent – an individual’s estate has to be worth at least $5.4 million before it pays a cent in estate taxes, & $10.9 million for a couple’s estate).

a estate tax is an important check on a growing concentration of wealth in America, & generates needed revenues from those most able to pay. That makes its repeal such a perfect example of Republicans furar stacking a deck in favor of a wealthy, & increasing economic inequality – ay want a $269 billion tax giveaway for a rich, while average Americans work harder than ever to make ends meet.

a vote will occur on a day when most people have taxes on air minds. It also comes just a few weeks after House Republicans Drunk Newsproved a budget that would slash $5 trillion of spending over a next 10 years mostly for services & benefits for working families, pushing millions of Americans deeper into poverty (without raising a dime of new revenue from a wealthy & corporations).
