Today on Tommy T’s Obsession With The Freeperati – mixed bag o’ nuts edition

Good morning, everyone! Before we get started, I’d like to address a scurrilous rumour that due to last week’s “Obsession” getting front-paged by Kos himself, I’ve become insufferably immodest.
Not true.
I was insufferably immodestlong before that.

Now that that canard has flown innuendo, let’s cycle the airlock and see what putrid posts the Freeperati have to offer…

Our appalling appetizer –Apparently Freepers don’t have credit cards!‏

Credit-Card Fees Curbed

Sweeping new restrictions on credit-card companies would ban extra
fees and fluctuating rates and arm tens of millions of consumers with
more information on their debts.
Starting in February 2010, a
Senate bill passed Tuesday would ban practices such as charging
consumers to pay by phone and sudden surges in interest rates. Payments
above the minimum due would be applied to balances with the highest
interest rates. Information once relegated to tiny print must be made
clearer, and consumers will soon be told how long it would take to pay
off a balance if they pay only the minimum due.

To: GOP_Lady
This will simply make it more difficult for marginally creditworthy consumers to get credit.

To: GOP_Lady
I know many people who will be happy to see this type of government control.
The problem was not the credit card companies/banks but people
living way beyond their means. If this were not the case they could
take their business elsewhere.
It’s not good news if freedom is what you’re after.
When the governmnet(sic) “lightens your load” in one instance it doubles, triples, or quadruples it in another.

Boucheau is seriously conflicted here.
On the one hand, he disagrees with Mr. Ramsbotham that people living beyond their means is a problem. Or maybe it is.
In the next sentence, he allows that in either case, this is bad news for Freedom.
They do, however, agree that any legislation signed into law by President Obama is bad, because he’s Obama.

Those poor old financial institutions! Stupid people need to have clauses in their credit card contracts that obligate them to be sent off to a work farm, because they’re stupid, and banks are all nice and stuff.

And of course, there always has to be a killjoy:

To: Boucheau
The problem was not the credit card companies/banks but people living way beyond their means.
No, that’s not necessarily true at all. In the past, I’ve been in
situations (major car and home repairs, medical bills, and wholly
unexpected college/university fees) in which I would have been royally
screwed if I did not have a credit card to back me up.
The
credit card companies are in fact THE problem, with their fraudulent
lending and pricing policies, and countless pitfalls, any one of which
leads to major fees and interest rate hikes at usury levels, courtesy
of those fine-print “Important Amendments” we all get in the mail from
time to time. The whole system, as it is now constituted, is one big
debt trap.
Having been screwed myself by my credit card issuers
in the past, I actually agree with Obama on the need for this
legislation because this industry is wildly out of control, with prior
congressional complicity (Kennedy, Biden, and Dodd).
Sorry to burst some bubbles on this thread, but even a clock is right twice a day.

Dick Cheney is Mr. Republican

Politico ^

Posted onWednesday, May 20, 2009 2:04:13 PM bypissant
Dick Cheney is 68, white and bitter. He is the Republican Party today.
The
Republican Party has no serious wing other than the Cheney wing. The
moderate wing of the Republican Party is distinguished by the fact that
it does not exist, and yet it is still shrinking.
Arlen
Specter, senator from Pennsylvania, recently left the Republicans for
the Democrats, and Jon Huntsman, the Republican governor of Utah, is
joining the Obama administration as its ambassador to China.
After
Huntsman’s appointment was announced last week, article after article
said he had been one of his party’s “leading” candidates for the
presidential nomination in 2012.
Leading candidate? With the
possible exception of Salt Lake City, you could fire a cannon down the
main street of any city in America at high noon and not hit a person
who had ever heard of Jon Huntsman.
Everybody has heard of Dick
Cheney. True, a Washington Post headline last week said: “As Cheney
Seizes Spotlight, Many Republicans Wince.” But a wince can sometimes be
mistaken for a spasm of ecstasy.
Cheney has many pluses. He is
very, very good on TV. (People who don’t like what he says overlook how
good he is at saying it.) He is calm, articulate and often courageous.
Who else but Dick Cheney would have the guts to go on “Face the Nation
With Bob Schieffer” and say “in terms of being a Republican, I’d go
with Rush Limbaugh” rather than Colin Powell?
After that,
Maureen Dowd wrote: “Cheney, who had five deferments himself to get out
of going to Vietnam, would rather follow a blowhard entertainer who has
had three divorces and a drug problem (who also avoided Vietnam) than a
four-star general who spent his life serving his country.”
To which the Republican wing of the Republican Party replies, “Yeah? So who wouldn’t?”
One
of Cheney’s greatest attributes is that he revives the whole “Daddy
Party vs. Mommy Party” argument that has bedeviled Democrats for
decades.
Republicans say they are the Daddy Party. They are
strong and will protect us from communists, terrorists and people who
want to take away our guns. Republicans say Democrats are the Mommy
Party. They say Democrats care only about social programs for the poor,
don’t care about national defense and don’t understand terrorism.
Bill
Clinton described the dilemma in December 2002 by saying: “When people
feel uncertain, they’d rather have someone strong and wrong than weak
and right.”
Cheney offers a clear choice. He is for
waterboarding to save the United States from terrorism. He is a Daddy
Party kind of guy.
True, President Obama gave the go-ahead for
the military to shoot three pirates last month. But Cheney actually
shot a guy in the head once. How Daddy Party can you get?

The Republicans could do worse in 2012. And probably will.People were sick and tired of Bush & Co last year. Just bone-weary. Cheney was a large part of that.

Temple “Terrorists” Could Barely Buy Handguns, Let Alone Missiles!

The FBI’s army of confidential informants seems to increasingly
embed itself with some of the most inept “terrorists” imaginable. I
just skimmed the US Attorney’s criminal complaint against the fearsome
foursome that allegedly targeted two Riverdale synagogues and a
Newburgh airport. I’m left with the sense that they aren’t such a scary
bunch.
The FBI’s army of confidential informants seems to
increasingly embed itself with some of the most inept “terrorists”
imaginable. I just skimmed the US Attorney’s criminal complaint against
the fearsome foursome that allegedly targeted two Riverdale synagogues
and a Newburgh airport. I’m left with the sense that they aren’t such a
scary bunch.
James Cromitie, David Williams, Onta Williams,
and Laguerre Payen, no doubt wanted to blow up Jewish temples and
military aircraft. They clearly wanted to obtain C-4 and surface-to-air
missiles. The problem is they were fantastically far removed from any
realistic means of obtaining WMDs. In other words, these accused Bronx
bombers were no more capable of executing an explosive attack, than a
little league team is capable of beating the New York Yankees.
In the federal complaint, there’s one recorded conversation in
particular, that illustrates just how feeble these so-called terrorists
were, even when compared, to garden variety drug dealers.
On
April 23rd, inside a Newburgh house rigged with video and audio
surveillance, one of the suspects made a call to an “unknown female gun
supplier.” The accused terror team wanted to have several handguns for
their night of. .well. . ..terror. Suspect David Williams made plans to
meet the gun dealer later that day, but Williams couldn’t quite procure
the pistols.
The gun-hungry team tried again to pack some heat
on April 28th. Williams finally had a meeting with his gun runner, but
alas, no luck. The complaint reads:
“David Williams learned
from the Female Gun Supplier that she had sold the guns to another
buyer, and David Williams attempted to contact numerous other gun
suppliers. .. David Williams asked Onta Williams to attempt to purchase
guns for the Terrorist Operations. Onta Williams made several calls but
was unsuccessful.”
So let’s pause and do the math. These
menacing terrorists, bent on mass murder, have been trying to find a
few measly handguns for 6 days, and they can’t do it! These are four
grown men, who can’t seem to accomplish something that, sadly,
16-year-olds on the streets of Newark can do by hitting a speed dial
key on their mobile phones!
Finally, on April 30th, a full week
after the terror team started hunting for handguns, they found a
Brooklyn man who agreed to sell them. …hold your breath. … exactly
one .9 millimeter pistol. Now I’m not minimizing the danger posed by
illegal handguns, but one fist full of steel, a terrorist does not
make.

Why Al Franken Has More Guts Than Rush Limbaugh

http://www.patricksamuels.com

Posted onWednesday, May 27, 2009 10:37:44 AM byMikey76
Allow me to begin by saying that I am no fan of Al Franken and I’m
not specifically picking on Rush Limbaugh. If and when Al Franken takes
his seat in the senate, it will be a bad day for America. And I am
using Rush Limbaugh as an example for all the radio and television talk
show hosts, all the writers and bloggers out there including myself,
who have ever despaired of the direction of the country, deplored the
behavior of our elected politicians and thought that we had more common
sense in our little finger that they had in their whole body.
The media has an important function in our society, which is why it is
referred to in the first amendment. The ability to educate, inform and
persuade is a powerful tool in the political process. But for all the
words spoken by Rush and the other talk show hosts, for all the words
written in newspapers, magazines and on the Internet, the stimulus
package passed for want of one vote in the senate. Government health
care, a nearly four trillion dollar budget, cap and trade may all be
forced on us for the lack of one or two votes.
For all the
talking, all the educating, all the informing done by talk radio and
other conservative/alternative media, the country is falling rapidly
into the black hole of statism. Why? First, while Rush’s fifteen to
twenty million listeners sounds like a lot, there are over three
hundred million people in this country, over one hundred million
voters. And not all those listeners agree with Rush’s viewpoint, some
are just entertained, and this goes for all of talk radio. The point
here is that the vast majority of people in the country don’t tune in
to talk radio, they don’t follow the news closely, they are not
politically educated or aware. As products of a government education
and fans of reality TV, they easily fall for a demagogue like Barak
Obama.

Posted onThursday, May 28, 2009 8:56:11 AM byZakeet
President Obama’s selection of Judge Sonia Sotomayor for a seat on
the Supreme Court has put the Republican Party in a bind, forcing it to
weigh the cost of aggressively opposing the first Hispanic named to the
court against its struggle to appeal to Hispanic voters.
The
Republican Party has been embroiled in a public argument over whether
to tend to the ideological interests of its conservative base or to
expand its appeal to a wider variety of voters to regain its strength
after the defeats of 2008. Many conservative activists and political
strategists came out fiercely against Judge Sotomayor as soon her name
was announced, denouncing her as liberal and promising Mr. Obama a
tough nomination fight.
“The G.O.P. has to make a stand,” said
Scott Reed, who managed Bob Dole’s 1996 presidential campaign. “This is
what the base and social conservatives really care about, and we need
to brand her a liberal with some out-of-the-mainstream positions.
Forget about cosmetics and ethnic heritage, and focus on her record.”
But
some Republicans warned that the image of the party’s throwing a
roadblock before a historic nomination could prove politically
devastating. Republicans saw a dip in Hispanic support in 2008, after
eight years in which President George W. Bush and his political aides
made a concerted effort to increase the Republican appeal to Hispanics,
the nation’s fastest-growing group of voters.
“If Republicans
make a big deal of opposing Sotomayor, we will be hurling ourselves off
a cliff,” said Mark McKinnon, who was a senior adviser to Mr. Bush and
has long advocated expanding the party’s appeal. “Death will not be
assured. But major injury will be.”

I used to think Alcatraz was a good location, but it’s

want your family member stalked and killed by extremists just because
he was a guard at Extremitraz? Here’s
my idea of what to do with the Guantanamo detainees. I haven’t heard
this any where but I think it will work if you must close Guantanamo.
Where is the most secure location in the US? No it’s not a supermax Cat
5 prison. Where can guards go in complete anonymity? Where can Red
Cross, International Press, or whoever be taken in complete secrecy and
not observe anything but the condition of the detainees?Here it is: I
recommend that they be taken to some newly constructed facility in Area
51.
Think about the isolation and the security of the area. The current
people who work there are flown in from McCaren Airport in Vegas. The
same thing could be done with the detainees and anybody that’s needed
for support. Congressional visits, Red Cross and every other human
rights organization would be very controlled. They would be flown in
and driven by windowless busses to the detainee sight.Anybody see any
major flaws with using Area 51 to detain these extremists?

Area51

Although they probably have pretty advanced interrogation techniques…

AlienInterrogation

Well, that’s more than enough for one week.
Off to Decontamination, everyone – we’re featuring premium hot wax after the bleach spray this week only.

  1. I disagree with Rush and Co. all the time. Wish they were as conservative as me.
    Good gravy. I’d like to hear more of this chap’s opinions.

    Extremitraz?
    Seriously, do these people have a pathological need to rename everything? Dimmicrats, Obambi, Extremitraz?
    When we want to insult people we just call them Republicans, for chrissakes.
    A.

  3. left rev. says:

    Why am I suddenly reminded of that dude in Airplane spinning wildly around the ATC room screaming “Auntie Em! Auntie Em! It’s a twister! It’s a twister!”?
    Don’t bogart that popcorn, man.

  4. A –
    In fairness, “Obambi” was coined by MoDo.
    Which, oddly, strengthens your point.
    .

  5. And anyway, isn’t “Extremitraz” a new power drink?
    .

    A,
    When you name something, you exercise control over it.
    Then when you comically mispronounce it, you communicate distain towards its worthlessness.

    On Credit Card fees, wouldn’t charging 20% be usury?
    On the terrorists, I agree with the freeper poster on why does every busted terrorist cell get communicated as a Keystone Cops routine. After all, you have:
    1) The pizza delivery guys who were gonna attack Fort Dix with rifles.
    2) The Rastafarian Floridians who were gonna bomb the tower in Chicago, even though they had never even been to Chicago.
    3) The police investigation of a Quaker peace discussion (featured in Fahrenheit 9/11).
    4) And now the folks who were get C4 to blow up houses of worship, even though they apparently did everything but call up the FBI and ask for a loan.
