The Charlie Baker Hoax -- Crocodile tears? Please read

If you click on The Rachel Maddow Show for tonight's show she reported on the Charlie Baker cry out during last night's debate. It more accurately, in my opinion, should be called The Charlie Baker Hoax.  Let me explain:

In an effort to appear less wooden he was asked a softball question it almost seems to me that the station carrying the debate purposefully stuck the question in to give Charlie a chance to seem more human -- just a supposition on my part.  He was asked if he ever had an occasion to cry.  He warned us that by answering the question he probably would break down.  Did I see any tears?  No.  I simply saw Charlie covering his face, turning red SEEMING to cry. I can do that too. That, though, is not the crux of the whole story.

The story delivered by Charlie was about a fisherman to the north of Boston who told him the sad story of his two boys offered football scholarships.  The fisherman, Charlie said, told the boys no he would not let them play football because he needed their efforts to fish at home.  They were fishermen, after all, for generations.  Why those boys could not have accepted the scholarships to go to school I do not know.  I'm sure Charlie had a method to his madness though I know not what it was. Reminded me of the story when a kid as the Lone Ranger came to visit sick children in a hospital.  I asked him for a silver bullet the trademark of the Lone Ranger.  He said "Sorry, I need them for the trail."  Even a 6 year old could tell it was not true and I suggest anyone can tell Charlie Baker's story is made up -- unless, of course, we find the sons.  It almost sounds Biblical.  I digress.

The Charlie Baker crocodile crying seemed to work as voters wrote in their empathy with it and for him UNTIL it did NOT work.  Why you may ask?  Because reporters, praise God, began to ask questions.  No one but no one still can find this elusive fisherman or his sons nor does anyone in the community Charlie Baker was talking about know anything about that fisherman OR his sons either.

Charlie's explanation began to crack.  Well, he said "maybe it was a few years ago I don't know maybe five years ago.  I meet so many on the campaign trail they get fused together." Yeah right and if I believe that one I would believe the Lone Ranger too.  The Republican gubernatorial candidate lies.  Now that's a big surprise -- NOT.  He lied when he said he was not on the corporate board when Christie invested pension funds of New Jersey to the tune of 15 million bucks but we have the proof that he was on the board.  Has anyone talked about that further?  No, silence.  What is true and what isn't?  Charlie is never pinned down ... EXCEPT now.  No one can find the missing fisherman, the object of Charlie's story, nor can they find his sons.

I kid you not.  If anyone knows the whereabouts of that fisherman or his sons missing in the action of Charlie Baker's emotional story please do tell.  Nothing short of a gubernatorial election could ride on it.

YET ANOTHER REASON TO GET OUT THE DEMOCRATIC VOTE FOR MARTHA COAKLEY AND OTHER DEMOCRATS.  WHY?  BECAUSE REPUBLICANS LIE AND THEY LIE ALL THE TIME BECAUSE THEY DO NOT CARE ABOUT YOU.  THEY CARE ABOUT THEMSELVES AND ALL THE BUCKS THEY CAN MAKE BEFORE AND ESPECIALLY AFTER THEY SERVE.  REPUBLICANS ARE MASTERS AT USING MONEY TO BUY ELECTIONS AND YOU CAN BET CHARLIE BAKER HAS OUTSPENT MARTHA.  MARTHA DESERVES OUR SUPPORT.  PROVE MONEY CAN TAKE ONE JUST SO FAR.  SO IT'S SIMPLE.  VOTE DEMOCRATIC AND YOU WILL NOT BE SORRY YOU DID!

The Man who NEVER EVER will be president

In case you not have heard the latest from that vile brute tub of lard Chris Christie I paste this number for your enjoyment:

http://www.nbcnewyork.com/news/local/New-York-New-Jersey-Superstorm-Sandy-Anniversary-2-Years-Later-Rebuild-Build-it-Back-FEMA-280752672.html?fb_action_ids=10152504106452075&fb_action_types=og.comments

A bigger JERK than Christie you will NEVER find. Chris Hayes (kudos to him) had on the holder of the sign in protest of Christie. The sign holder was BRILLIANT, articulate and knew EXACTLY what he was talking about unlike the BLOWHARD who will NEVER be president, Chris Liar-in-Chief Christie.

He told the sign holder to try working at the Sandy site like he did. Oh sure, Christie worked on the site. We know he worked the cones! The sign holder actually DID work for MONTHS on housing at the Sandy site and was an Independent on City Counsel at one time to boot. Christie as usual does not know what he is talking about.

The sign holder had a simple question out of the 1 BILLION that that sicko bully was given: What happened to the $800 MILLION that is left? Did he put he aside for his cronies, MAYBE?

Christie is a rude insult to this nation and he is a man who NEVER EVER will be president. He's a bully and a Republican liar just like the rest of that evil Party. They are an albatross on our nation's neck. NO ONE EVER SHOULD vote for Republican for ANYTHING not even dog catcher!

NOW GET OUT THE DEMOCRATIC VOTE OR THE SENATE WILL BE FILLED WITH OVER 50 OF THESE INSULTING BEASTS!

Pass this to anyone you choose. MAKE SURE THEY VOTE -- DEMOCRAT of course!

Dust to Dust



Headline: "White House Hit With What Appears To Be Sustained Cyberattack."  What the hell else could befall this president? I do not know how he takes it. I love him still and I do not care about those who do not. He inherited a beast in world and domestic politics from the know-nothing Bush. Everywhere this man turns there is a huge problem a day with a sidecar of life and death consequences.  He encounters an opposition, the Republicans, who want him to fail and by extension we will fail in a nuclearized world. 

The president KNOWS what to do but is foiled at every corner and cannot get even his most benign nominees to important positions approved by a cement-like Congress. I'm white and I say racism is a large part of his opposition; so endemic to this nation that it is a cancer eating away at our body politic.  It is the true etiology of the Republican obstructionism which will not allow him do his job.  It is their Revelation's attempt to gain power encouraging a politically biblical Armageddon.

George W. Bush gets this nation entangled in the worst foreign policy catastrophes of all time and I hear nary a word of recall against the one who ruined it all so Obama has to clean up a dump-heap mess. 


Bush's puerile assessment that "Puty Pute is a good guy and I know what is in his heart" falls flat.  Puty Pute decides he doesn't like us anymore.  Both China and Russia see the weakened position in which the opposition has placed this president and move in for the kill while Snowden betrays his own country exposing its classified secrets to the world entire. He does not know the world is NOT as our Founders knew their world to be.  The wet-behind-the-ears Snowden knows NOT what he has done.

LEAVE OUR PRESIDENT ALONE to do his job and then Democrats KNOW where the real problem lies. GET OUT THE VOTE and unseat these obstructionist Republican unpatriotic excuses for leadership and cut out their Ebolic virus from the veins of our nation. 

DEMOCRATS GET OUT THE VOTE AND THEN DO SO IN HUGE numbers.
If you don't vote then don't complain when you get Armageddon Bush's spawn times 10 on steroids
giving credence to the words found in the Anglican Book of Common Prayer -- "Earth to earth, ashes to ashes, dust to dust and to dust all of us will return" well before our time!

Two Cheers for Martha - Deconstructing the Globe Endorsement of Charlie Baker

GREAT editorial and exactly right.

Good on social issues this Charlies Baker is?  We'll see.  If the big boys in the RNC cash guzzeling creeps in Kochville say jump to Charlie Baker I think he might say how high?  Would he?  Who knows, he allegedly gave Chris the blowhard Christie 15 grand and allegedly got 15 mill in investment returns in a corporation he said he did not run but we know it says in black and white that he lied and did run it.  The Globe never pursued that story.  I wonder why.

Vote for a Republican?  I say, why take the chance and I surely NEVER will!

VOTE DEMOCRATIC BLUE EVERYWHERE AND GET OUT THE DEMOCRATIC VOTE

Coakley UP 45-41 - New York Times - Today's Poll




An email from my Democratic campaign friend (see email below) evoked a response.  Thank you Dhruba, for the email.  I have been walking around all day as if I were stun gunned by the Globe's endorsement of Baker. It is UNTHINKABLE in this state known for its usual smart blue slant to all of a sudden lose its brain and think that a Republican is going to trickle down the state to economic health. What WILL happen under Republican rule is a heretofore healthy blue state will turn Ebola sickly red!

We above all know the utter failure of Republican politics most especially economic political policy.  Why do we know this?  Because Republican economic policy has been given a 30 year try not to mention the 1929 Depression under Republican do nothing presidents. Remember the Great Recession under Bush. It came from Republican policy.

In almost every case Republicans who now control the governor's office have run their state into not only political red but economic red as well.  Chris overrule-science-blowhard-faker Christie has sent New Jersey's credit rating into the latrine.  Scott has run roughshod over Florida as has Walker in Wisconsin, LePage in Maine, Brownback in Kansas and it goes on and on and on and on. So now according to the Glob, yes, I do mean Glob, Baker is going to save some towns that are not so prosperous in Massachusetts with his what cutting the corporate tax rate and slashing social programs for the sick, the elderly and the poor?

Oh I forgot it said he could work with Democrats.  My posterior he can.  Do NOT believe it. 
Massachusetts, my proudly heralded state, think twice before you EVER on planet earth think of pulling the lever for any Republican.  They have defined their party and it is NOT the party of most of you or really anyone else in this country. 

I read Red Sox owner John millionaire or maybe billionaire Henry owns the Globe so its Republican slant should be of no surprise.   If the Red Sox finishing in the cellar is a metaphor for the Globe's endorsement of Baker's success it has an ominous running the state into the red Republican glow!

GET OUT THE DEMOCRATIC VOTE PURE AND SIMPLE EVERYWHERE!

What it is worth ...

That is why some say - don't pay attention to polls - unless across the board. SocialSphere looks manipulative.
 
Thank You !!

My humble $0.02

Come election time, we see venom-spitting competition against Dem leaders and candidates from a section of “Democrats”.
This year is no exception.

The anti-Obama propaganda machine is ON.
What is the big picture?

Obama won the election twice – reelected during a very bad year for Democrats.

I don’t want to list all his achievements – but just a few 1) Healthcare Act 2) Withdrawal from Iraq/Afghanistan 3) Repeal of DOMA 4) Nearly 30 Executive Actions favoring prevention of gun violence 5) A huge boost to Science, Technology & Engineering. 6) Landmark action on environment protection and climate change.
And all these IN SPITE of the obstructionist Republicans in the Senate & the House.
So instead of spitting venom against President Obama I think we should take a positive approach. In our communications we should highlight Obama’s achievements (who is not only the President but also the leader of the Democratic Party), that more could have been done but for the obstructionist Republicans.

In this election cycle we need maximum mobilization of our supporters. By spitting venom against Obama- the leader of the Democratic Party – is that achieved? Or are our supporters discouraged and demoralized? Who will such venom-spitting help?

People have two years after each election to build powerful mass movements to influence the Government. Instead of doing that I see some people – mostly quiet during this period – become hyper active when elections draw near and start spitting venom against our leaders. This is a lose-lose strategy.

At the State level, the same applies. Martha Coakley is now OUR candidate. In an earlier post I had warned about SocialSphere – the company hired by Globe to conduct polls. I think they are just way off in the statistical techniques they employ and the inferences they draw. So the latest poll result of Baker leading by 9 points should not surprise you.
Also – we need to mobilize all Democrats and build a coalition to defeat Baker. Venom spitting against either Don Berwick or Steve Grossman turns off those activists who were/are passionate about them. Continued act of vilification of Steve Grossman or Don Berwick is an act of support for Charlie Baker.


MY 2 CENTS

BE WISE AND VOTE YOUR INTERESTS AND FOR MOST OF YOU UNESS YOU ARE A PART OF THE 1% ARE WITH THE DEMOCRATIC PARTY THE ONLY ONE THAT GIVES ONE THOUGHT ABOUT US.

Baker oversaw firm where pension funds were invested -- PLEASE GET THIS IN AN AD!!!!

This Appeared in May why hasn't the Coakley campaign 

advertised this?



Baker oversaw firm where pension funds were invested

Oh Canada, Oh Ottawa


The words to the Canadian national anthem and a few words after it:

O Canada!
Our home and native land!
True patriot love in all thy sons command.
With glowing hearts we see thee rise,
The True North strong and free!
From far and wide,
O Canada, we stand on guard for thee.
God keep our land glorious and free!
O Canada, we stand on guard for thee.
O Canada, we stand on guard for thee.

Our great friends to the north in Ottawa and all of Canada I know my sentiments are like so many in the beloved nation to your south even with the discord that exists within it.

We stand with you as you stand with us for human rights sketched with much blood over centuries. We see how important the rights of man are -- the right of free speech, of a free press, the right to believe in a supreme being, a God, a creator as we choose even if it is not to believe at all.

We empathize for those who receive that which the worst evils of our nature bestow. We reject violence as an expression of disagreement no matter how strong the inclination is to it as we reject all inhumanity that is uncivilized and extreme.

We defend those precious rights that can disappear on a whim. We defend them even to the loss of our own life. Why? Because they are the gift that those who came before bestowed upon us and so that their lives will not have been in vain.

Oh, Canada we, indeed, stand on guard for you and for ourselves!

A Short History Lesson

The Republicon CON Began in 1968 when Johnson would not run -- Vietnam blunder so Humphrey took the Democratic nomination but was albatrossed by the war; Republicon Nixon with his "moral (mental) majority" saw the white entire south flip from Dixicrat Dem to solid Republican. The law and order crowd went with them too.  It stands today. 

So there is power in a BUNCH of red small states.  Republicon strategy even until this day is to win a LOT of the small electoral states PLUS Texas and leave the big NE states Democratic and capturing a few.  It means now for Dems to win THEY must get the black minority, Hispanic, women and other minorities' vote registered and turn out.  To defeat that Republicrats have to voter suppress.  They are utterly loathsome.  Democrats, REGISTER despite Republicons vile attempts at suppression of the black and Hispanic vote.

The president is a human being after all and look at what the nincompoop the man who never should have been president Bush handed this president. He handed him a can of worms and the problem in the American memory is it is ever ever so short. They just do not remember even the Great Recession.  They think it was Obama's fault.  It WASN'T is was honed after 30 years of Republican economic policy for the rich that saw social programs cut while they cut the corporate tax rate. The megga rich NEVER created jobs.  They shipped them overseas.

Obamacare works, Bin Laden by his order is dead, and DOMA is dead, the economy is better and would be better still with more stimulus and unemployment compensation and without the OBSTRUCTIONIST Republican Party wanting to gum up everything this president did.
Even Ebola is doing just what the experts predicted WITHOUT shutting down the borders. Dallas Presbyterian Hospital go kick Republicrats in the posterior for cutting social programs like the CDC and NIH which was making an Ebola vaccine but had to stop because of the Repbulicon cuts. Republicans closed down the government and nearly did not pay the nation's debs everything for Republicans over sized zeal to get power, return to a white racist nation and damn the American public in the process

The president's blunder was trying to reach across the isle to compromise with a racist white Party of Republicons who could not stand to see a black man in that ever so white house.
Everyone after the 2008 horror Great Recession should get down on their knees and be thankful our nation survives.  NOW GET OUT THE DEMOCRATIC VOTE and DO NOT under any circumstances let REPUBLIcrats rule. You will get rule by the 1% megga rich, they will ship jobs overseas and we the 98% will be up s ____ 's creek without the proverbial paddle yet again!   REMEMBER Republicans do not give a damn about most of you.

NOW GET OUT THE DEMOCRATIC VOTE ACROSS THE NATION!
