Sarahphernalia!

15 09 2008

In Alaska, the image of Sarah Palin has been a constant presence on TV screens, magazine covers, cartoons, and the front page of the newspaper every day since her VP nod. Shortly after the ticket had been announced, there were yard signs, and bumper stickers. Then came the “Super Sarah” t-shirts with modified Superman logo, and the “Our Mama Beats Your Obama” shirts. Those really started to drive me crazy.

And then the universe said, “You want something to complain about? I’LL give you something to complain about!” And lo, the pitbull merchandise arrived – buttons, stickers, more t-shirts, and even hockey jerseys, all with lipstick.

I thought I’d seen it all, including a Super Sarah t-shirt for sale in our local Natural Foods store, merchandised ironically beside the “petroleum-free” lip balm display, and just above the reusable shopping bags.

But wait, there’s more! This email just came, announcing that I could “Bring Sarah to [my] Kitchen!!!” (with 3, count ’em 3 exclamation points!!!) Wow!!! Now available are five designs of…and I quote…”classy tempered kitchen boards” for your chopping amusement.

Images aren’t yet available, but two of the five designs just say “Palin ’08”, apparently assuming that McCain won’t last very long. Another design makes reference to Palin firing the personal chef, saying “We cook for ourselves.” And, of course, what would a Sarah Palin cutting board be without a handy recipe for moose stew?

And for the discerning collector, you can visit Wal-Mike’s roadside store in Trapper Creek, Alaska, and purchase this fine vintage “Palin for Governor” frisbee, now worth $1500. Wake me up when it’s over.

I have to say this thought out loud…

To those who will not vote for Obama because of the color of his skin I would ask “If Sean Combs (aka P.Diddy Combs) offered you a job in his company, with health care benefits for your whole family and a good salary equal to your qualifications regardless of your gender, would you say no because of his skin color?”. You can interchange the “P. Diddy” with any successful business person of race. They might not be honest with the response publicly but hopefully it will make them think a little at home.

GOP ‘Trickle Down’

Want a Good Talking Point To Women looking GOP, not so much about Palin but the GOP Ideology of Trickle Down Economics, that many were Warning them about:

Spike in jobless rate for women is worst in more than 33 years

A sharp monthly rise in unemployment for women could be a sign that the economic slowdown has begun to hit working women with a force not seen in decades.

And in light of the news today, still unfolding, and the past news, Guess Where The Blame Lies!!

You folks had a Great TownHall up there, listening now.

Apparently the folks in Alaska are good studies on those they hire, but apparently, as one mentioned, even you all didn’t vet her. Seems she was voted in, at least for some, because she looks good. Actually got a chuckle out of that one.

Welcome to Black Monday. My Mom (aged 92 and still very much on the ball) told me this morning that she is truly frightened. She has lived through depression and all the signs are here again. Oh well I guess we should all just relax as McCain & Palin have assured us this morning that the fundamentals of our economy are still strong. If the old saying the ‘truth hurts’ is true, then this pair is certainly pain free.

Perhaps you can answer some legal questions for all of us:
1)why can the computers of Todd and Sarah (along with staffers) not be conficated and the hard drive examined for this Troopergate investigation?
2)should the McCain/Palin ticket go down to defeat in November (and we are all praying that it does) what happens to your Govenor if found to have abused her power. Will she be impeached or allowed to serve out her term?

Has anyone contacted the Obama campaign and asked them to run that McCain ad where he admits he doesn’t know much about the economy again? Today would be the day to run that puppy all over.

Hubby and friends are not feeling good today after waking up to the news, and I agree with GERALDINE – all the signs (that were supposed to be prevented) are there. Perhaps the only way out in McCain’s mind is War with Iraq?????

Staying on the doll theme: There also needs to be a Putin doll with a big tiger and gun as well. He should have a map that highlights Venezuela and Georgia. What a day.

Just ordered Obama tees for the YaYa’s and we’ll wear them together. We will not go quietly.

AKA Blaster Commander Palin

I posted this on the last thread, but I’ll repost it here because it’s actually RELEVANT to the new post!

One final thought, and this if from an advertising perspective. If you accept “brands,” and “branding” as one of the major communication tools of the twenty-first century, you can see what’s going on in the two campaigns. One has a brand (Obama) and the other is just floundering. McCain-Palin have no brand. All they have, to quote Peggy Noonan, is “narrative,” the strange story of a POW and a “hockey mom,” who don’t even know each other–an arranged marriage–a fake marriage. And as Matt Damon pointed out, the “hockey mom” part of the story is like a bad Disney movie. Their brand is so empty that they are using more of their ad money on “lying,” than getting out their “great story.”

The Obama-Biden brand is much more resonate: it is “change,” it is “integrity,” and they actually attend to their brand. I don’t think you can win an election without a brand in the twenty-first century.

I would agree with your normally, but this is the country that had a market meltdown over Beanie Babies and Pokemon. Not ANY substance but they were still bought and little bears and paper cards were, at one point, going for hundreds of dollars. Part of effective marketing is mindshare (“do you remember my product’s name?) as well as heartshare (“can you relate to my product and what it will do to make your life easier/safer/better?”)

If you look at their ticket from that perspective, what do we get? A ‘strange marriage.” An “uncomfortable marriage.” It definitely does not project “mindshare” and heartshare.”

Look, so many pundits are aghast at what McCain’s now done to his “brand.” He’s completely wrecked it. WHen they say, “What’s happening to McCain?” or “This is not the McCain I knew,” that’s another way of saying, “Where the McCain brand? It’s gone!”

We just have to get the word out today. Important points:

1) Under Bush’s/McCain’s watch, there were indicators of market deterioration as early as late 2002. Nothing was done. I’m researching now to see what bills were passed that may have helped the mortgage companies, etc.
2) McCain has admitted several times he does not know much about the economy. And for that Phil Gramm comment – surely, you jest! SOX is not working – obviously.
3) We have many signs that are pointing toward a depression: low dollar valuation, failing banks, higher unemployment….
4) Did you know that McCain voted with Bush 90% of the time over the past 7 years?

Seriously, this is part of the sales pitch for one of the “SP related” Alaska properties on Ebay. As I watch our Florida real estate market plummet, all I can think of is….give me my tax dollars back! I also found the fact that the SP house was listed at $900k+ absurd when the property tax records show it worth 1/3 that price. So while the rest of the nation is struggling to keep a roof over their heads, Ms. Palin is seeking to turn this election into a personal real estate bonanza? I am incredulous!

Just remembered an old Garrison Keillor tape he did about or while in Alaska 20 years ago (it was one of the series about the seasons). His story explained why people moved to Alaska: because nobody had a background they would be tied to – thus they could do anything. Maybe this explains the lack vetting of SP.

Ok, something weird is going on. Until about the last week, ABC has been so sicknenly pro Republican I have boycotted the station. Now they are turning out to be the station most likely to call McBush/Palen on their BS images.

Maybe the MSM is waking up to the fact that the Internet is about ready to put them out of business. Since we can get the truth on the internet, they are going to have to start telling us the truth to stay relevant.

I am still amazed that well-educated, well-paid investment bankers put so much of their companies’ resources into those bogus mortgage-backed securities– the hottest investment scam since Ponzi. Hadn’t they learned that a healthy scepticism is the best defense against disaster?

Maybe they need to teach more economic history in business schools.

Do I think McCain-Palin can sort this out? Excuse me?

@plwalsh:

It’s called GREED. Banks work off of 12 month cycles for incentives – not the 10 year economic cycle. Greed. Greed. Greed.

And again, Reaganomics warned of this little defect in their approach. Greed.

I saw this coming two years ago. AS a debt/budget counselor, the amount of foreclosure counseling we do has gone up 185% since Nov of ’06. And I hate to say it, but it’s going to get worse before it gets better. We’re not done with these banking problems, not by a longshot.

More buyer’s regret from the Wall Street side of the Republican Party. I wonder where this is heading? A mass revolt?

Anyone on Wall Street right now must be terrified of the prospects of McCain-Palin. Two economic neophytes (one of whom can’t even remember how many houses he owns) facing a major financial catastrophe. McCain, who is looking increasingly senile, would be bad enough. But the Palin woman? Can you imagine the jokes the financiers are telling about her right now?

@Blaster – I agree with you on the McCain brand. He is sacrificing everything to try and win this. Someone posted earlier that this is just like Goethe’s Faust, and I agree. It is so sad to watch. It’s slimey. It’s uncomfortable. As I stated earlier, I believed in McCain in 2000 and what he was trying to present out to the Country. This is nowhere NEAR the same McCain of 8 years ago. Don’t understand how one can withstand all those years as a POW and yet can’t stand down his own Party goons?

Dr. Carroll Quigley, Georgetown University professor (and Bill Clinton’s mentor) wrote “TRAGEDY AND HOPE,” described as one of the most important books of the 20th century. Here are a couple of quotes:

“The growth of financial capitalism made possible a centralization of world economic control and use of this power for the direct benefit of financiers and the indirect injury of all other economic groups.” Tragedy and Hope: A History of The World in Our Time (Macmillan Company, 1966,) Professor Carroll Quigley of Georgetown University

“The Council on Foreign Relations is the American branch of a society which originated in England … [and] … believes national boundaries should be obliterated and one-world rule established.” Dr. Carroll Quigley

BOTH McCain and Obama (and Biden) are CFR members.

Still think that “change” will be ushered in with an Obama administration?! THINK AGAIN!! Both parties are controlled by the same group of people. Major-party politicians — ALL OF THEM, so Obama is no exception — are merely puppets for the Powers That Be who are pulling their strings.

I saw John McCain’s speech this morning, and he stumbled over every word, was reading from a prepared script he obviously didn’t understand, and he did not sound convincing. I don’t know if everyone in his audience was a Republican, but alot of them were not clapping for him.

He said he would clean up wall street, have “transparency,” and “stop cronyism.” Oh, please, give me a break!

It was a terrible speech. He may wish someday that it had been interrupted by the White House because it was like watching Nero fiddle while Rome burned. Between himself and George W. I don’t think either of them has a grasp of what is happening today on Wall Street.

I’m sure Sarah feels fine about it since it’s another sign of Armageddon and the Rapture.

I’m holding out for the Chatty Cathy Doll (how many of you are old enough to remember her?) She had a chain in the back of her neck, and when you pulled the chain, she spoke one of about a dozen lines, at random I think. Here are some lines I thought might be included:

-I’m a pit bull with lipstick
-I’m married to the first dude.
-I don’t think we can second-guess what Israel has to do to secure its nation. (probably should put that one in 3 times)
-LIfe is a gift from God. Everyone is entitled to life. Except wolves and other animals.
-I’m ready. No doubts
-I think God’s will has to be done in unifying people and companies to get that gas line built,
-I’m not going tell you who to vote for, but if you vote for this particular person, I question your salvation. I’m sorry (I know I know, she didn’t say it – but she listened. And hasn’t disavowed it!!)
_I’m proud to be asked to be VP because of what I can do for Alaska (not the exact quote, but something like that)

Yes, it seems our financial system now runs on a version of musical chairs. You keep moving the fake profits along so you aren’t the one sitting on the floor when the music stops. It is a totally zero-sum idea of the economy– I get richer by making you dumb slobs poorer.

I heard an interesting program on the BBC recently that said this idea of financial dealing is considered totally immoral in Islam. The idea of a business partnership under Muslim morality is that both partners share in both the profits and the losses equally. Interesting contrast with the dog-eat-dog deals that go on in the West these days.

This article is posted at the Wonk Room – worth the read…

Project For The Neoconservative Palin

Sources in the McCain camp, the Republican Party and Washington think tanks say Mrs Palin was identified as a potential future leader of the neoconservative cause in June 2007. That was when the annual summer cruise organised by the right-of-centre Weekly Standard magazine docked in Juneau, the Alaskan state capital, and the pundits on board took tea with Governor Palin.[…]

A former Republican White House official, who now works at the American Enterprise Institute, a bastion of Washington neoconservatism, admitted: “She’s bright and she’s a blank page. She’s going places and it’s worth going there with her.”

Asked if he sees her as a “project”, the former official said: “Your word, not mine, but I wouldn’t disagree with the sentiment.”

This is Andrew Sullivan on Palin’s much-touted Alaskan gas pipeline deal:

“The pipeline exists only on paper. The first section has yet to be laid, federal approvals are years away and the pipeline will not be completed for at least a decade. In fact, although it is the centerpiece of Ms. Palin’s relatively brief record as governor, the pipeline might never be built, and under a worst-case scenario, the state could lose up to $500 million it committed to defray regulatory and other costs.”

Hi everyone! Just wanted to post some information on the Phoenix area, Arizona offices for Obama. I received an email regarding the need for more volunteers for the phone banks and walking neighborhoods on weekends! Yes, we are gonna have to do this one neighborhood at a time and one person at a time! But, do this we must! Depending on where you live, there are two offices to choose from: either downtown Phoenix or East Valley! Here is their information:

Obama for America
Arizona Headquarters
922 N. 6th St.
Phoenix, AZ. 85004
(602) 689-8326

and are open 9 am – 9 pm daily.

The East Valley Office may be closer to some you and you are encouraged to give them a call:

7141 E. Main Street
Mesa, AZ
480-924-3367

GET UP! GET OUT! GET INVOLVED! MAKE A DIFFERENCE! MAKE HISTORY!

There IS no trickle down. It is basically about suck up. The whole rise of wealth to the top is about looting every aspect of the economy for whatever you can squeeze out of it. Those bogus sub-prime mortgages and their worthless derivatives were the last attempt to tap into an easy income stream.

The problem with this system is unless you put all your investments in gold or buying up small third world countries, sooner or later you have no safe place to put your money. Once even the huge investment banks are hollowed out, you run out of places to loot and your assets start turning into worthless pieces of paper.

Meanwhile, the real money has moved to China where clever people have been siphoning if off for years. I doubt that they bought a lot of mortgage-backed securities there.

Is there *anything* in which you don’t see a conspiracy of some kind? Yesterday it was Planned Parenthood and eugenics. I believe you said the idea was to rid the world of black and brown babies.

Yes, Sanger was a eugenicist. Does that mean that’s what Planned Parenthood stands for today? I guess that means all abortions are performed from a grassy knoll.

So, the world is pretty much hopeless for you. Nothing works and nothing can be fixed.

A village in Alaska is running out of fuel with winter setting in. Ironically, this village is located in an area known as the “birthplace of the winds”. I don’t think chanting “drill baby drill” will help keep these folks warm these coming months. I only wish our “energy expert” of a Gov would have put a little of that $1.6 billion in energy relief toward some alternative energy sources. I guess Sarah would say “let them burn cash”.

@Intrigued- Yawn! As I posted days ago, I am not against expanding our 2 party situation, I think it would be a good idea. That being said, what have you personally been doing for the last 7 years to make that a reality? Where’s your candidate(s), what is their platform? I find it hypocritical that this only becomes an urgent issue at election time. After the last 8 years can you really tell me that voting for Nader was worth it? I, on the other hand, have been putting my money, my time and my words to work ever since Bush stole the election in 2000. I have been calling/writing my senators, congresspersons, even my local officials on the economy, environmental issues, equal rights, et al.. I have looked at the “other” offerings and found them wanting unfortunately. So if you don’t like the choices then do something about it like the rest of us have for 7+ years. But I’d appreciate it if you could give me a break until Election day is over or you will just be another Karl Rove fantasy come true.

The blog Ramblings of an Ageless Hippie Chick, which is written by a regular poster here and I cannot (sorry) find her “real” Mudflatian name, wrote a blog entry on the commercialization and marketing of the candidate, complete with link to the ravings of Mad Man (yes the double entendre is fully intended here) Danny Deutsch. There is a lot to dislike about Deutsch, but to me what he says here make total sense… see Ageless Hippie Chick’s blog here: http://agelesshippiechick.blogspot.com/2008/09/women-as-products-to-be-sold.html

Please, please PLEASE OBAMA HDQTERS – this is YOUR chance to have McCain truly tell it like it is!!!!! We CAN get back to the issues…..

Please remind your Republican friends that neither Greenspan nor Buffett believe McCain has a sound economic plan, e.g. you can’t lower taxes on borrowed money?

Did you know that McCain voted with Bush 90% of the time?

Kathi from New Jersey

My husband and I were discussing this the other night over dinner, and as we have zero insight into Alaskan politics, perhaps you could help. Is it possible that the state of Alaska could actually go for Obama in November out of sheer spite? All the info we’re getting here says that Palin was not nearly as beloved as she is painted to be. Throw in the undoubtedly unwelcome international attention for small towns up there…well, we were curious.
I don’t believe Alaska will go Obama. It might have before. The “it’s cool to have an Alaskan on the ballot” voters will be out in droves, as will those who genuinely like her. My fear is that it will bring out enough of the hard-core republican evangelicals, that the other Democratic candidates, including Senate candidate Mark Begich, and House candidate Ethan Berkowitz,will suffer.

thanks. all of these bothered me. but the one that bothers me the most is #11… How much grain does it take to fill up an SUV? Enough to feed a hungry person for a year. All I can see in my minds eye now is the hundreds of images over the years of starving people in Africa.

I am reminded of a scene from The Magic Christian (1969) of a group of people, obviously wealthy at a feast whilst in the background a television showed images of people starving. This is 40 years later… and we still do not see.

I’m in agreement with plwalsh – while the list is a great idea, it really clutters up the comments area. The comment threads get outrageously long as it is. I want to sign it but I don’t want to make people scroll a couple of pages when I do it, so I haven’t. It’s three mouse clicks on my screen at the moment..

Could I possibly suggest to the creator of the list that you begin a petition at petition online?

That would have a lot better chance of going viral than keeping the list here in the comments area, people can email the URL to people and they can easily add their name to it.

I love this website! You encourage me. I noticed the same pro MCain/Palin bias on ABC. I recommend going to their website often and giving them feedback. ( contact us lower lefthand of page) I believe we can shape their coverage if enough people write them. One person writing is like a drip. Several are like drip, drip, drip and they start to pay attention. If enough people write and keep writing, it could be a flood. I bet their current bias is from pressure from the McCain campaign along with feedback from thoses who feel the opposite as we do. I think if we could influence their coverage swing voters could be swayed.

Checking to see if my avatar is working now.

There was a dazzling display of insanity this morning as John McCain suddenly gave “the fundamentals of our economy” an actual definition according to him. You will be surprised to know that the “the fundamentals of our economy” is actually the American workforce. They are what is strong.

And if you believe that is what he has meant all along, I believe there is a bridge to nowhere I can sell you.. on ebay!

I think if we can get a selected few out and ask your friends to send to 5 more, we can make it work.

Maybe they need to teach more economic history in business schools.

I consider my self a reasonably intelligent person. I have 2 degrees and have almost completed a third… each more advanced. Sadly, these degrees are in the Humanities. Curriculum in the Humanities, particularly in advanced degrees, tend to focus on one’s subject and maybe venture outside one’s department into a complimentary department. Generally, “complimentary departments” are not business schools (mine was Art History & English).

While I actually have met one or two MBAs working in Arts Admin., (they are pariahs to other MBAs btw) Arts Admin tends to be the only place within higher education in the Humanities one gets any form of economic or business education. So, it pains me greatly to expose my ignorance of the current crisis. But… could some one give me the Sarah Palin boiled down version just so I can have some remote understanding? I promise I won’t take an interview with Charrrlliieee Gibson.

To Kathi from NJ:

My husband & I were talking about this last night, and I had a conversation w/my aunt about it as well. We are all in Alaska right now, though my husband is leaving for Canada on Friday he will vote early or absentee.

Anyway, I said to them wouldn’t it be great if Alaska went Democrat! I read somewhere that the Valley (Wasilla) was shaped by the oil boom, people from the South moving up for the oil jobs about 30+ years ago. It is definately a losing battle trying to change minds out there. However, Anchorage is definately a more liberal city, as is Juneau, and add to the Juneau mix the fact that Palin has pissed off so many there and there could be a Democratic outcome for that city. Anchorage, well, I just don’t know, but I’m doing my part! Heading farther north, Fairbanks might be a Palin city, since there is a huge military base there. However, take heart from the fact that the other day I was at a postcard party in Anchorage and sat near a military wife who was a very eloquent speaker on behalf of Obama. If other wives & husbands are tired of sending their spouses away to be killed or going away to be killed themselves, then maybe there is hope. Between Wasilla and Fairbanks there are several small towns, and they are probably 50-50 in terms of neo-cons & environmentally aware (which would mean NO McSame). Like I told my aunt last night: this, just as all previous elections, is an election where every single vote counts! We can do this in Alaska, but we must get energized! That being the case, I am going to head out with my toddler and use my walking list to try to win some Obama votes!

I forgot to mention that Palin has totally pissed off the Alaska Native contingent, and if they can get their groups rallied around the Obama cause that would be a lot of votes for Obama!!!!!!

Go Obama!

Good point about native voters… Maybe my assessment in an earlier comment was too gloomy. Keep up the good work! AKM

Just saw the anti-Alaskan rally on CNN. The part that was disheartening was it was NOT the lead story, but an aside to the lead story. Guess what the lead story was? A Republican group that is asking the public to ban the Oprah show. I was pretty disgusted by the coverage, and the rally was really buried, with no emphasis. The national TV media is treating the McCain camp with kid gloves. How can we get that to change?

Today, 9/15/08, Contessa Brewer showed clips of Biden’s and Palin’s stump speeches on MSNBC. The good news is that finally Biden is getting some air time after it seems like it has been Palin 90% of the time. The comment after the clips was that Biden’s French cuffs made him look out of touch! Palin got away with repeating her “bridge to nowhere” lie and the lies about Obama’s tax plan without any comment whatsoever!!!!!

I won’t know how these links will appear until I post them, so it’s an attempt.

The email also says:
“Just this past week, John McCain hired a Washington super-lobbyist to fill positions in a potential McCain-Palin White House. At least 177 lobbyists have been on McCain’s campaign staff, and apparently he hopes to run the White House the same way.

McCain’s campaign — run on lobbyists and lies — is no match for this unprecedented grassroots movement. More than 2,500,000 people have stepped up to own a piece of this campaign.

But if we want change, we must continue to grow this movement and put an end to these dishonorable political tactics. And we have just 50 days left to do it.”

@Demo: “…she did say no more golden parachutes for the CEOs. Oooh, radical….”

….of which she has no control. The SEC has been trying for years to get this more formally regulated. . . how many lobbyists does McCain have on his campaign? 129 at last count? Who is paying their salaries? Oh. Yes. Big Business.

While I agree that CEO and Board salaries are blatantly out of control, here’s the negative if the SEC tries to regulate this:

Risk of far-reaching authority and abuse could interfere with the Board and its Corporate Officers to run a Company effectively. Connect dots. This could mean if you don’t vote the Party Line, the SEC Gestapo could come and take you out. That is not good for shareholders or anyone. There have been discussions in “extraordinary cases” (Enron) for this to comply ONLY if the Company refuses to comply with a court order to obey the federal securities.

This woman is mad, I tell you.

If she actually said that, I fear she promotes fascism:

“Fascism should rightly be called Corporatism, as it is the merger of corporate and government power.”

I have taken a break from all this madness to do something I should have done a long, long, time ago. And that is to read “Dreams From my Father” by Barack Obama.

I started yesterday and stayed up until past midnight (and I need to get up at 5:45 am in the morning!) I’m about 3/4 through and I will finish it tonight.

Up until now, I’ve only known Barack Obama from his speeches which are truly inspiring. I’ve only known Barack Obama from his policies which are the closest of any candidate to how I believe.

But now I have been introduced to Barack Obama as a young man, as told by a truly gifted writer, himself. His story of personal growth, self-doubt, introspection, commitment to others and self-realization is amazing. His story is a unique one and even though we’ve all heard it a thousand times, white mother, absent African father, growing up in Hawaii and Indonesian, worked in Chicago as a community organizer, etc. etc. etc. reading it as told by him in his words is something completely different.

If you have not read it, please pick up a copy today and read it. I’m not an overly religious person at all, but all I can say after reading this amazing young man’s own words if that I feel blessed that he has chosen to run for President. He deserves so much better than the gutter crap being thrown at him by the swine of the right-wing.

In these crazy times with this world getting crazier and crazier by the minute I’ll put my faith in the guy who is not only is the most intelligent of the lot, but the guy who possesses more integrity in his little finger than McCain/Palin possess in their entire bodies.

Back in March, I requested info about Alaska prior to a road trip we took in July. Just today I got an official looking letter from the Governor of Alaska inviting me to get a copy of the Alaska Travel Planner I already got last spring. Is it merely a coincidence that Mooseburger Mama happens to send me info in New friggin’ Jersey two weeks after McSame picks her for VP? Or am I just being a Jersey girl?

Guys – don’t you think the media has sold out at this point? We cannot rely on them. We will have to get this done via grassroots and viral marketing. We have to quit fretting over the unfair coverage of the media and get people to understand what is at stake.

1) Palin is truly Mooselini since she is promoting the merger between government and corporations
2) Gramps wants to start the War of the Worlds
3) Gramps nor Moose know anything about economics

swineprincess:

This is my boiled down version of my “bubble theory” of the ecomomic crisis.

There is a tendency for all free markets to go crazy. Economic history is full of examples. One classic is the Dutch Tulip Mania, when speculators bit tulip bulbs (of all things) into the stratisphere. Such bubbles tend to draw more and more people, including those who really know nothing about markets or investing, inflating the values of whatever is being speculated on (oil, stocks, mortgage backed securities, it doesn’t matter).

Eventually, panic breaks out and everyone tries to get out of the market at once. Prices collapse, people and businesses go bankrupt, and whole economies falter, depending on how big the bubble went.

The latest bubble in the U.S. has been the real estate market, fueled by low interest rates and increasingly easy-to-get mortgages thanks to deregulation. The myth here was that real estate could never lose value and even risky mortgages were fine because you could always foreclose and sell at a profit. Clever Wall Street investors started bundling mortgages together into “instruments” called “mortgage backed securities” which were given AAA ratings and sold widely. They were popular at investment banks because the returns (fueled by risky mortgage interest rates) were high and they seemed very safe.

Of course, the myth started to fall apart about a year or so ago when many people started to default on those risky mortgages. The real estate market started to go down and even foreclosing was a bad idea because you couldn’t sell the property for the value of the mortgage, if you could sell it at all. The mortgage backed securities were like time bombs going off throughout the economy— no one knew what was in them, whether they were good or bad investments, even what the deal was with the mortgages they contained.

All of a sudden, a lot of AAA investments went up in smoke. They were worth God-knows-what and couldn’t be easily turned into cash. Banks started to lose money and totter, sending off further panics as money ran to other, supposedly safer, places.

This is where we are now, hoping that the bottom doesn’t fall out of the economy as a result of this latest bubble. For some reason, investors never learn from the past and don’t pull back on these disasters until it is far too late.

The government’s role in this was supposed to provide some regulation and stabliity, backing confidence that the investments were safe and shouldn’t be dumped. But the Bush Administration, hating regulations, ignored all this. Now we are paying until someone figures out how to bail out the system.

It could get really, really, really bad, especially if McCain (an idiot on these things) wins the election.

A Palin-defusing Strategy tip from Nate Silver, via Andrew Sullivan on The Atlantic.com:

“To defuse the Sarah Palin Phenomenon, Democrats need to explicitly give voters permission to both like her as a person and then also not vote for her.”

This was from the editorial section of the Seattle Times and few days ago:

“Gov. Sarah Palin lives by the maxim that all politics is local, not to mention personal. So when there was a vacancy for director of the state Division of Agriculture, she appointed high-school classmate Franci Havemeister to the $95,000-a-year job. The former real-estate agent, one of at least five high-school classmates hired by the governor, cited her childhood love of cows as a qualification.”

swineprincess:

This is pretty simplified, but I think essentially correct.

The bottom line is that Wall Street (or whatever investment power there is) will always pester the government to lessen regulation when they can make more money at it. When all hell breaks lose, they want the government to step in, bail them out of their stupid decisions with tax payer cash, and then re-regulate to calm everything down.

This has gone on for decade on decade. The last major blow out was the famous Savings and Loan Meltdown of the early ’90s that cost the tax-payers many billions. One problem is that now the government is so stretched and in debt that its ability to right the boat is seriously compromised. They bailed out a couple of banks (e.g., Smith Barney) but now they seem to be letting Lehman go belly up.

So I took the opportunity to give him even more information. Also reminded him to vote on a paper ballot rather than an electronic because of the danger of hacking. He said he hadn’t even thought of that.

Just for a little side info here. Four months ago an assistant to Palin called an Alaska blogger and told her “Stop blogging! Stop blogging right now!” . My first thought was that this was just a claim that was maybe true, maybe not, so I looked around to find out. Well, apparently it’s true and the NY Times reported on it, and Palin refused to talk to them about it, and her spokespeople also haven’t responded. Her campign responded to “some” questions on her behalf. Anyway the whole thing was rather interesting if you’re interested the NY Times article is here: http://www.nytimes.com/2008/09/14/us/politics/14palin.html?_r=1&bl&ex=1221624000&en=afcd714ae3b553ae&ei=5087&oref=slogin

Wow, the Daily Kos tracking poll is showing that 63% of the 18-29 demographic (the cell phone only crowd) is supporting Obama. That could mean that the other polls are WAY off.

Meanwhile, all the polls (including Kos) are attacking all the other polls and inaccurate. This sort of debate seems to be an increasingly larger percentage of the poll chatter out there.

Just received this in my mail box today:

FIRST TIME DONORS will have their donation matched. SO IF YOU HAVEN’T DONATED DO IT NOW. 20.00=40.00. REMEMBER, first time donors only! I still went and gave money anyway! What have you done for OBAMA today?

Even Karl Rove had to admit yesterday that the McCain campaign’s lies and negative attacks have gone “too far.”

John McCain is running the most negative and dishonest campaign in modern presidential history. He has demonstrated that he’d rather lose his integrity than lose this election.

It’s right out of the Bush-Rove playbook. Unfortunately, as Karl Rove knows better than anyone, these shameful tactics have worked in the past.

This year, we can’t let that happen.

Our goal is to bring 50,000 new donors into our movement by Friday at midnight.

And if you make your first online donation today, your gift will go twice as far. A previous donor has promised to match every dollar you donate.

Double your impact right now. Your matched donation of $5 will become $10 if you donate today.

The culture of corruption and dishonesty that has hurt America so badly the last eight years is playing an even larger role in McCain’s campaign.

Just this past week, John McCain hired a Washington super-lobbyist to fill positions in a potential McCain-Palin White House. At least 177 lobbyists have been on McCain’s campaign staff, and apparently he hopes to run the White House the same way.

Also this week, the McCain campaign continued to repeat a number of outrageous lies, even after watchdogs in the media called them “shamelessly misleading,” “thoroughly dishonest,” and “a toxic mix of lies and double-speak.”

They also lied about the crowd size at one of their rallies — reporting 23,000 attendees when there were only 8,000.

McCain’s campaign — run on lobbyists and lies — is no match for this unprecedented grassroots movement. More than 2,500,000 people have stepped up to own a piece of this campaign.

But if we want change, we must continue to grow this movement and put an end to these dishonorable political tactics. And we have just 50 days left to do it.

Right now, a previous donor — an ordinary person just like you — has promised to match your donation if you step up today.

Double your impact to combat McCain’s dishonest campaign tactics — make a matched donation of $5 or more today:

From the Wall Street Journal via Andrew Sullivan:

Last week, Republican presidential candidate Sen. John McCain said his running mate, Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin, hadn’t sought earmarks or special-interest spending from Congress, presenting her as a fiscal conservative. But state records show Gov. Palin has asked U.S. taxpayers to fund $453 million in specific Alaska projects over the past two years.

These projects include more than $130 million in federal funds that would benefit Alaska’s fishing industry and an additional $9 million to help Alaska oil companies. She also has sought $4.5 million to upgrade an airport on a Bering Sea island that has a year-round population of less than 100. …

I just talked to my sister who is a Certified First Assistant, (Surgery Tech). She is in business for herself, and works with surgeons in the Atlanta GA area.

Anywho, she was talking to one of the surgeon’s office personnel, who says their patients are experiencing hard times. Some patient’s have to cancel their surgery because they can’t come up with the co-pay to get the procedure done.

My sister is also experiencing a difficult time, due to Blue Cross sending her insurance payments to the patient instead of her. The patient’s should send the check to her, but they don’t, most of them cash the checks. This makes it extremely difficult for her to recoop her payment. I imagine, they keep the money due to hard times.

Just the other day, one of her patient’s received a 900.00 check that should have gone to her, but he cashed it and told her he could only pay her 50.00 p/month payments.

For the first time in my life, I’m not voting against someone, I’m voting for someone, which feels good. Because it feels so good, I contacted the Obama campaign and made calls today to PA. (NY will go Democratic, so I wanted to work in a swing state.)

Can’t say it was a fantastic experience. A lot of people who don’t seem to care. One who blatantly said, “I’m not voting for HIM.” (referring to Obama.) But that won’t stop me. Making more calls tomorrow.

Food for thought: A job requirement in the McCain/Palin staff is one’s ability to face Palin’s lies one by one and look for and find a millimeter opening that will move one foot into their “TRUTH” field from the “LIE” field. Then they depend on the media to push both feet in, and soon, they actually believe that their lies are universal truths!

Those of us who are supporting Obama need to really step up the mobilization efforts. I am convinced that the poll numbers are not reflecting the college vote which I believe to be overwhelmingly in support of Obama/Biden. The question will be to make sure that those voters are registered and that, on election day, they vote or have mailed in their absentee ballots by the deadline should that be necessary. To that end I have signed up to volunteer at the voter registration event at the University on Sept 30th and will man phones between now and then to specifically target that population. My time is pretty limited as I suspect is with most of you who work FT and have families but this is vital work. Whatever you can do to get that vote out will be crucial, especially for those who are in swing states. Lets make this happen.

Here is a better way to put what I wanted to say on this on the video I caught on YouTube called:

A Prayer for America

I really hope you guys get to watch it… Watch it to the VERY END for the meaning..

The video and song is NOT really about the ol’ guy who was once called a Maverick but now titled Mudslinger of LIES — it’s really about America.

The lyrics to the song called:

Prayer For A Friend

Lord, I lift my friend to You, I’ve done all that I know to do
I lift my friend to You
Complicated circumstances have clouded his view
Lord, I lift my friend up to You

I fear that I won’t have the words that he needs to hear
I pray for Your wisdom, oh God, and a heart that’s sincere
Lord, I lift my friend up to You

Lord, I lift my friend to You
My best friend in the world, I know he means much more to You
I want so much to help him, but this is something he has to do
And Lord, I lift my friend up to You

’cause there’s a way that seems so right to him
But You know where that leads
He’s becoming a puppet of the world, too blind to see the strings
Lord, I lift my friend up to You
My friend up to You

Lord, I lift my friend to You, I’ve done all that I know to do
I lift my friend to You

(in the video it says: Lord, I lift America to you )

You can also hear the song on Playlist HERE

I also want to add… that if Obama / Biden win this election, I just might start believing and praying again -( that part of me has died over the past few years because of Bush and the likes and what they have used Religion & God for and for the WRONG reasons)
Heck, I might even have more faith in our government!!

Anyway, not only is the video moving, but so is the song.

Hey guys,
Remember the article mudflats put around the 5 September Palin: So Sambo Beat the Bitch’.

He recently updated his article to cries of “show me the source” by the repubs.
http://www.newsone.com/article/palin-called-obama-sambo-clinton-the-b-word-

Well I contacted the journalist who wrote the story. I asked how do we get this out without his sources. He said h e attempted to contact MSM, NBC, ABC, MSNBC, CNN, and the Washington Post and they were indifferent. Below is his suggestion

“As for getting this into the MSM, my only suggestion would be to organize a writing a letter-to-the-editor of local newspapers campaign. I’ve tried the “media powerhouses” such as the New York Times, Washington Post, MSNBC, etc., and was greeted with a thundering round of indifference which didn’t surprise me but did leave me disappointed. It says something about the sad state of journalism when The National Enquirer beats news magazines such as Time and Newsweek to the punch.”

(someone tell me how to put in italics, pls)

below is the link to the original article for those who have not seen it.

http://www.laprogressive.com/2008/09/05/alaskans-speak-in-a-frightened-whisper-palin-is-%E2%80%9Cracist-sexist-vindictive-and-mean%E2%80%9D/

BTW, in his article he says “that Alaska”. To my friends in Alaska, is that true. Is this the general type of conversation used for non-Alaskans? Just curious.

I’ve begun to send my letter to the editor. Maybe if I work from the ground up it will be more effective.

Hey Gov Palin. My retirement portfolio sure could use a little “fixin’ and shakin’. All you know about economics is… oil tax profits+federal earmarks=boat loads of money for the State of AK coffers! Its a lot like set netting fish. Pull your net in and reap the harvest from government waters. Is your economic plan like in that movie -Dave- where Kevin Klein brings in his accountant friend to cut the budget. Sarah, I think that was just a movie.

Divatalk,

I think I’m as eager as the next to see Palin defeated. But a waitress named Lucille at some unidentified restaurant just isn’t enough. It’s a really big deal to accuse someone of racism and sexism. Sambo is a word that carries a heavy load. Sadly, calling Hillary a bitch is standard fare.

Until the author of the piece can somehow better substantiate the quote, I don’t think it would be responsible of MSM to tell the story.

I sent the piece around and then apologized to people for sending it. There’s no place for bigotry in my life. But there’s also no place for lies. Unless and until someone can prove Palin said those awful words, I have to give her the benefit of the doubt. More accurately, I’m going to err on the side of caution.

There’s enough in the public record that disqualifies Palin. Sambo isn’t going to change much, especially for people who comfortably use such heinous words.

Wow, that must mean my “Unity stand with Obama” sign is worth about $5,000, I’ve had it since the Dem primary, here in ID. I think I’ll put it in the bank, if I can find one open.

Are you learning alot about what you should be doing with your money? Money, money whose got the money and who’s to blame, money, money, who ran off with the money this week. If someone doesn’t start saying K5….I’m gong to think McBlame and his buddies as well as his supporters all have that senior disease….

I can not take it anymore.
I sent another 50.00 to Obama about five minutes ago.
Now I am hungry so I am off to prepare dinner.
I must also begin to focus on myself.
My husband says I have become obsessed
and he wants me to try to quit watching, surfing and worrying

He says it is in Gd’s hands now.
So I lift my prayer to God and hope he is on America’s side.

This message is for: Geraldine (09:35:56)

Regarding confiscating Palin’s computer:

You need to familiarize yourself with your states open records act, or go to the ACLU near you and ask.

Here in CA, I filed an ORA request on a county agency. They DID in fact walk in, take the computer, literally, right out from under the person I requested the information on.

The problem with Palin is that she is using her private e-mail account for biz purposes… so even knowing what is there is difficult. Some have actually taken the general position of deleting messages daily. And, don’t forget, she is also using her two (?) blackberries while traveling.

Someone familiar needs to file a request immediately. They have to respond, generally, in most states, within 10 days as to whether they will respond. This means you won’t get the info in that time. There are specific ways and very specific language adapted to various open records statutes that need to be used.

Finally, when this is over, please get a law passed in your state banning the use of personal e-mail accounts and personal electronic devices, machines etc. for doing gov biz. This needs to be done, BTW, in most states. Legislators will balk… they like it this way. AND, BTW, the language should be extended to those working under contract to government. Their information should not be considered privleged or anything else.

The solution is to get Obama in and hold his feet to the fire. The Constitution Party won’t win. Forget about Nader and McKinney. Ron Paul will run for his 100th term. McCain is going to fry us. We can organize at the local levels electing those that believe in our state and national Constitutions. For more insight,

For more analysis on the financial crisis:
http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/26722031/

It’s written so average folks should be able to understand. The following by Jon Corzine (currently NJ Gov., formerly of Goldman Sachs) may be the most troubling sentence in the entire piece:
“I don’t think anybody has a handle on it,” said Corzine. <b?”I have a feeling that people do not know all of the exposures they have to the entities that are troubled, and therefore causing additional problems that have to be adjusted, requiring even more capital and even greater shrinkage of balance sheets and other risk exposures.”

Add to that the decision by the WH that there won’t be additional bailouts, Paulson’s statement today that “The American people can remain confident…” seems ironic at best and more likely just plain irresponsible.

This SHOULD convince people by the millions that 4 more years would be disasterous, but they remain blissfully ignorant. We can hope that more of them are beginning to pay attention.

DeMo (12:59:53), responding to :
Proud2Be asked:
“What have each of us done today to further our chances?”

I contacted the Obama campaign and made calls today to PA. (NY will go Democratic, so I wanted to work in a swing state.)

Can’t say it was a fantastic experience. A lot of people who don’t seem to care. One who blatantly said, “I’m not voting for HIM.” (referring to Obama.) But that won’t stop me. Making more calls tomorrow.

DeMo
Personally, I have had much better luck talking to people face to face, rather than phoning. I realize most of us are quite busy and often reluctant to “talk politics” with others. However, I am feeling much more hopeful and energized after spending the past 2 days speaking with neighbors and acquaintances – some agreed and some didn’t, but I had productive, civil conversations with everyone I contacted…for me, that’s a start. I am also convinced that while many of us have been watching every nuance of this election, many haven’t even tuned-in yet!

Compare that to the reality of what happened. And then think about how what we are being told by the Republicans in the current campaign is likely to compare to reality, if they are elected.

Axe Diesel,
I hope you are right. After watching the Saddleback Forum, I shuddered again to find that most I spoke with like McCain’s quick, snappy answers…e.g. “yes, yes, no” when asked a series of questions regarding education issues.

Obama is thoughtful, deliberate and measures his words carefully. He is incredibly intelligent (preaching to the choir, I know). However, Intelligence doesn’t seem to be “in vogue” to many in our nation. Many are simply not interested in (or can’t follow) well thought out responses to complex questions and issues.

I was horseback riding with a group of women yesterday. We almost NEVER talk politics because one woman is SO conservative and volatile…so we don’t really know what each other’s views are.

However, I simply made the statement yesterday that, having been away from work, for medical reasons, I miss having someone to “talk politics” with. A woman riding behind me yelled out, “I found a GREAT button at the fair! It says, ‘Hillary Supporter for Obama!'”…Anther piped up, “Having a president that could say nuclear will be refreshing and reassuring!” Yikes! I realized I was with fellow supporters.

Personally, I have supported O. from the beginning, but that first shout-out was an opening for a conversation. So, of course, by the end of the ride I was sharing the location of Mudflats with those who were interested, and several of us agreed that we too should try for creative community action.

One vote at a time.

Forgive me if this has been posted before – “The governor did have a tanning bed put in the Governor’s Mansion,” Roger Wetherell, chief communications officer of Alaska’s Department of Transportation and Public Facilities, confirmed to this newspaper. “It was done shortly after she took office [in early 2007] and moved into the mansion.”
tanning salons are an absolute fad, especially popular among high school and college students, most of whom can’t afford to own such a machine – which can cost upwards of $35,000 – at home. But that’s what the spas and salons provide: An average indoor tanning session will set you back about $7 in Alaska — though special packages can run up past $20, according to Alaskan tanning salon operators interviewed by this newspaper. A 2004 survey sponsored by Wolff System Technology, a major manufacturer of tanning bed parts, found that the average age of those clients is 32 and that it’s increasingly a passion of men, who now account for about 30 percent of all indoor tanners.

would someone PLEASE tell me why that idiot GeeDubya, who CLAIMS to be a Texan, is not in his parent’s so-called home town… to figure out why there is still a problem taking care of storm victims 3 years after the lessons of Katrina?

this is the best he has to offer:

“After his latest briefing at the White House from emergency officials, he promised the federal government will do all it can to assist the victims of Hurricane Ike.

“We obviously watch this recovery very carefully because the federal government is playing a crucial role in helping the people of the devastated areas recover,” continued Mr. Bush.”

Yesterday morning, the first responders at the staging area for the entire Southeast Texas area had no water, no food and no portapotties. The congressman (a Republican) who’s district the staging area was in, stopped by basically say “hi” and found the place in turmoil. He made phone calls and got portapotties in and then made a plea on air (TV/Radio & Streaming) and asked for people who had “extra” water and food to bring it to the football stadium so that these people, who had come to help, would have water and food. These fine people of Houston, with tree limbs on their houses, no power, and a boil order for their water, rallied and responded immediately with all the water and food they could spare.

What is it about “We’re here to help” does the Bush administration not get?

Dude:

Great stuff; I know you can’t be doing GOD’s work, but keep it up anyway, That Sarah frisbee thing could be cool to use against her. Have somebody make one up that looks like a moose “muffin” and stenciled with, “GOP ‘Reform’; no matter how far you throw it, it always comes back the same old shit!”

What I’m wondering is: why do they think people like being trickled on?

Or do you think maybe they screwed up the the spelling of tricked? And given they way they’ve been pimping their candidate that might just be the case.

Sorry, I couldn’t resist the puns.

And it’s not even a Pit Bull on that T-shirt. The schnozz is too long and the head isn’t broad enough, and Pit Bull’s ears do not look like that. This looks more like the profile of a Great Dane, you know–Marmaduke. Either way–you can put lipstick on a big dog, and it still looks stupid.

Another new slogan “If you need help, the Pit Bull will be glad to trickle down on you.”

The latest on Troopergate

ANCHORAGE, Alaska — A campaign spokesman says Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin won’t speak with an investigator hired by lawmakers to look into the firing of her public safety commissioner.

McCain campaign spokesman Ed O’Callaghan told a news conference Monday that the governor, the Republican nominee for vice president, will not cooperate as long as the investigation “remains tainted.” He said he doesn’t know whether Palin’s husband would challenge a subpoena issued to compel his cooperation.

The campaign insists the investigation has been hijacked by Democrats. It says it can prove Public Safety Commissioner Walt Monegan was fired because of insubordination on budget issues _ not because he refused to fire a state trooper who had divorced Palin’s sister.

I don’t understand the blind attraction of so many to Palin/McCain–have we had an invasion of the brain snatchers that I haven’t heard about?? Should we leave the country to be safe…This is madness!

What a riot!!! Made me laugh and right now I count on any amusement I can get to take the edge off this nightmare in process.

FYI – Palin held a rally in Florida and no body came. How embarrassing!!

Your rally is all over the internet and in the media. Every tv news station (mpls/st.paul)is broadcasting your efforts. You rock!!!!

If Obama is so great why is everyone so worried about the competition? He’s not going to win by trashing the other side–tell the voters why they should vote for Obama–not why they shouldn’t vote for Palin, who if you haven’t noticed isn’t running for the top spot. We should be comparing Obama with McCain and Biden with Palin. Where is our focus? Why all the negativity? I want to be impressed with Obama, not told to vote for him just because he is the lesser of two evils!

Thanks Vahana…Biden’s speech was the perfect send-off to bed.
Fantastic, inspiring, truthful words. We have a great future VP…Obama knew what he was doing!

They are now coming out with the “PitBull in Lipstick” joystick coming soon to adult stores near you!

There was this couple that had been married for 18
years. Let’s call them Todd and Sarah….

Every time they made love the husband always
insisted on shutting off the light.

Well, after 18 years the wife felt this was
ridiculous.
She figured she would break him out of this crazy
habit. So one night, while they were in the middle of a wild,
screaming,
romantic session, she turned on the lights. She looked down. and
saw
her husband was holding a battery-operated leisure device… a
vibrator! Soft, wonderful and larger than a real one.

And the working end was shaped like a PitBull with Ruby Red Lips!

She went completely ballistic. “You impotent bastard
She screamed at him, “how could you be lying to me
all of these years?
You better explain yourself!”

The husband looks her straight in the eyes and
says calmly:
“I’ll explain the toy . . . you explain the kids.”

What about a Sarah Palin ‘douche-bag’!

That will really be useful, and as a MAN – the glee of Palin’s sh**-faced lies ‘coming clean’ will become reality with such a pleasant floral scent!!

ooh, look, a troll! and with such a very troll-like name. shall we call you haggis for short? but mostly we won’t call you. funny, i just got through catching up on this whole thread and the impression i got was a group of sane, funny, intelligent people, so sorry haggis, your sense of smell and a whole lot of other things is way off. not sure how you strayed here, but i hope your find your way back to whatever disrespectful pond scum you obviously hail from. TROLLS? DULL AND DIME A DOZEN. MUDFLATS COMMUNITY? PRICELESS.

It is me … or is it just a smidge unsettling that the Republicans are more interested in this obsessive dalliance on their pitbull and her lipstick than … oh … say … the fact that the economy is quite possibly going to heck in a handbasket and certain parts of the world are unstable to say the least? Rhetorical question.

Of course Palin has everything under control. I mean … she can see Russia from her backyard. Poor old Putin is wringing his hands now. To boot she is an economic scholar. She knows Fannie and Freddie are tax-payer funded. And who needs to be diligent or studious in that whole energy business nonsense when you can learn it from the media? Yeah. Discursive is for the birds.

Did I happen to mention I am a conservative? Two words. Sacred Monster. I just wonder what McCain is going to do should his strategy (in my humble opinion) to use Sarah Palin as a distraction to vote him into office turn into a big fat albatross around his neck?

Sarcasm aside – I hope I did not offend anyone with my comments. I am only sharing my opinion. The whole situation frightens me. Good luck all.

The Palin star is fading fast, don’t you think? The more she opens her mouth, the easier it is not to vote for her. “I can see Russia from my house” is a great line. OK, it was SNL’s line but Sarah could have said it.
