Okay, I thought it was just me and my connection that couldn't reach Sam's blog.

thanks for letting us know, Sam - at least that will put a damper on conspiracy theories which could have started to fly

Janice Brown said...

Hi Sam, they keep trying to take you away from us but we keep finding you. We will keep fighting to get you back where you belong. Until then, give 'em HELL (I mean the truth)!

Thanks,

Am I alone in this?

Nope, I'm getting the weird error message too.

something is wrong on the other blog again?????@#$%^&* Everything was fine and I was posting and having a good time until I opened the Hugo Chavez link and things turned screwey - I thought somebody might have sent a virus through the Chavez pdf - I don't know if it's just me at this point - I do get a weird message, shelag, with a nasty little round face mentioning some gibberish

I hope the Sammy Cam is working today.

Pat Buchanan: It’s the end of the world as we know it…
By: Nicole Belle @ 11:35 AM - PDT Everybody’s favorite xenophobe Pat Buchanan was on Meet The Press this morning with dire predictions for this country. Was he worried about a Constitutional crisis that makes Watergate pale in comparison? Nah…Pat’s convinced–convinced, I tell you–that the immigration bill is de facto amnesty and that’s going to result in our borders being overrun and turning the US into a “third world nation.”

Nothing like a little histrionic fear-mongering to start your day…

Download (134) | Play (133) Download (85) | Play (96) (Thanks to Dan at PoliticsTV.com for the videos)

Luckily, Rep. Luis Gutierrez (D-IL) is on hand to temper Buchanan’s great “Brown People” fear by pointing out that this is hardly the first time that citizens of the US have been suspicious of new arrivals–in fact, not that long ago, Pat’s Irish ancestors wouldn’t have been looked upon well:

Download (83) | Play (80) Download (33) | Play (47)

Immigrants have contributed immensely to the fabric and the structure of our great American society and they continue to do so today. The same arguments Pat makes today are the arguments made in the past. They were wrong then and they’re wrong today.

Report: Former MLB pitcher Rod Beck dies

June 24, 2007
PHOENIX (TICKER) -- Former major league relief pitcher Rod Beck died Saturday at his home in northeast Phoenix, according to the Arizona Republic website.

Beck was 38.

The cause of death is unknown. Police are investigating because Beck was alone at the time of his death, but no foul play is expected.

ADVERTISEMENT


The righthander was a relief pitcher for the San Francisco Giants (1991-97), Chicago Cubs (1998-99), Boston Red Sox (1999-2001) and San Diego Padres (2003-2004).

In 13 seasons, he compiled a 38-45 record and a 3.30 ERA with 286 saves.

In 2004, Beck dealt with personal problems during spring training and struggled on the mound before being released by San Diego in August.

Beck's best season was in 1993 when he recorded 48 saves, including a record 24 straight for the Giants.

toniD said...

‘Everyone we now fight in Iraq is al Qaida.’ Glenn Greenwald takes note of the increasing propensity of journalists to follow the administration’s lead in describing all Iraqi fighters as al Qaeda:

That the Bush administration, and specifically its military commanders, decided to begin using the term “Al Qaeda” to designate “anyone and everyeone we fight against or kill in Iraq” is obvious. … But what is even more notable is that the establishment press has followed right along, just as enthusiastically. […]

What makes this practice all the more disturbing is how quickly and obediently the media has adopted the change in terms consciously issued by the Bush administration and their military officials responsible for presenting the Bush view of the war to the press.

last week there was a survey claiming that congressional approval had dropped to 14%. does anybody have context on this? my sense is that we got there by having a do nothing congress for the past umpteen years since the contract on america was executed.

or does the 14% really reflect a rejection of the democrats who took over just a few short months ago?

Hershey, PA The closing is the company's second plant-closing announcement in a little over two months.

Hershey to close Reading, Pa., plant, cut 260 jobs

Saville said the company would work out severance agreements with the workers and close the plant in 2008. Hershey is looking to shift more manufacturing to India, China, Mexico and contractors in the United States, and has already announced it will cut up to 900 of the 3,000 workers from three plants in its hometown.

i would agree that a whole bunch of us are pissed that the dems aren't tackling what they were put in there for, but i have a lot of trouble with the spin that says the 14% reflects that america wants to return control to the republicans, a theme i've seen echoed more than once in the financial papers i read.

On the international news portion of Diane Rehm's Friday News Roundup, one of the reporters trotted out the predictible crap about "just this week finally proof positive that Iran is supplying weapons and IEDs both to Iraqi insurgents and Afghanistan, that Revolutionary Guards are helping the Taliban, blah blah blah." About two mintues later, a caller from Texas said "BULL, I don't believe one damned thing the Bush administration says," and that reporter backed up so fast he turned wrongsideout.

WTF? So what's this reporter's source and how did it go from being ironclad fact to hardly worth defending in a matter of moments? This just makes my head spin.

I don't think that was spam. I think it's just a silly troll. One of those idiots who perpetuates the garbage that folks here, and liberals in general, don't work.

Most folks work, even when they don't have any earnings. The trolls don't seem to understand that you can work your ass off and not make a living wage, and then the CEOs can complain their businesses are going down the oubliette because of those horrible greedy workers who want to feed their families, whilst the CEOs can add no value to their companies, kill businesses, and have wildly profitable recompensation. I pity the trolls who love their masters.
