    Can you add Catholic Relief Services in Haiti. I know several people who work with this organization. They do excellent work in Haiti and around the world.

  2. yeah cause I got nothing better to than edit the blog, P~~

      President Obama is responding more quickly and forcefully to the tragedy in Haiti than President Bush did with the devastation caused by hurricane Katrina. Makes me wonder if the right will find something to criticize about the President’s response to this.

  3. Some congress person I saw earlier was calling to automatically extend the visas of all Haitians currently in this country. I’m sure the Lou Dobbs’ crowd is already foaming at the mouth over that one.

  4. nannymm

    Of course they will, dnd. Don’t they always?

    Brian, was that a touch of snark I detected from you? 😯

  5. nannymm

    Whoever that Congress critter is, I agree with him or her. We not only need to extend visas, we need to open our hearts and our borders and change our immigration policy towards Haitians. Our current policy is cruel and unjust.

    Thanks, Brian. (((HUGS)))

  7. Is it just me or does anyone else see the irony in the fact that a man who wrote a book called “Attack The Messenger” published the following blog piece?

    By Craig Crawford | January 12, 2010 7:30 PM |

    The revelatory new book, “Game Change,” presents a moment in the 2008 campaign that I painfully remember. I was there, and I was a witness to NBC’s determination to undermine Hillary Clinton in late October in the Philadelphia debate. It was stunning to see what I thought to be real journalists becoming players, partisans in a cause I could not fully understand. To this day, I’ve never seen anything like it. I remember arguing on air that night with Chris Matthews, but realizing that I was on the wrong side of what had become an egregious example of media bias. What unfolded in the days, weeks and months following is beyond anything I ever imagined — a legitimate news organization I work for demonstrating a commitment to the promotion of a candidate it little knew.

    Too funny!

    Today, We’re All Haitians
    By NICHOLAS KRISTOF

    After 9/11, the French newspaper Le Monde declared: We Are All Americans. And after yesterday’s earthquake: Today, we are all Haitians. No country seems to have had worse luck with misrule, environmental mismanagement, natural disasters and poor governance than Haiti. And now the earthquake.

  9. dooty

    yeah Brian Crawford really stirred the anti Obama love Hillary crowd there. Yesterday was all about how there was no need to ever vote again. How Dodd and Edwards and Obama teamed up on Hillary. I’m telling you it’s a love fest.

  10. nannymm

    It’s very ironic. Unfortunately, there is more than a grain of truth in it. Trying to find neutral media during that campaign was nearly impossible.

  11. nannymm

    This man should stop talking:

    Must read piece:

    Poll: More Think Health Care Reform Isn’t Ambitious Enough
    The CBS poll finds that Obama’s approval rating on health care has dipped to 36%. But the poll also asked whether people think the reform proposal, in various ways, goes too far, is about right, or doesn’t go far enough:

    Court Forces Bed Rest on Pregnant Woman

    The State of Florida apparently considers confining pregnant women to bed rest “status quo.”

    You may be wondering if you read that correctly. You did. The State of Florida actually took the position that it is simply maintaining the “status quo” to hospitalize a pregnant woman against her will (instead of allowing her to return home to her two children) and to deny her fundamental right to make her own informed decisions about medical care during her pregnancy.

  17. Apparently the right is against Net Neutrality too:

    I wonder how much Comcast has kicked in for this one.

  18. nannymm

    Let’s face it, Brian. If the Dems are for it, they’re against it. Without fail these days.

  19. dooty

    The Repubs have been against Net Neutrality for over a year now I think.

  20. Does that answer your question nanny?

  21. nannymm

    There was never a doubt in my mind, Brian.

  22. nannymm

    Funny, when we were viewing that clip, Brian, Rush’s mouth never moved. Paul concluded that he’s talking out his ass, as usual.

  23. LOL, it’s a just a still pic, funny!

  24. eprof2

    Thanks for the RL clip, Brian. This man is absolutely sick! Paul is right: he talks out of his asshole because his brain is right inside his ass.

  25. Hi gang…

    Well I have a few things to say in reference to this post and some of the comments.

    First Dooty…
    Yes it was a hate fest and bashing festival against Obama at you know where while I see Obama doing far more in his first year for Americans then Bush did in his whole eight years.

    In fact he’s done more than I would have thought possible with the current Fascist Republicans and the Party of No obstructing everything every day.

    Also once again Max accused me of Antisemitism when I called Lieberman by my favorite name for him – Judas Iscariot.

    Of course the fact that Max is always War Mongering against the Islamic Religion and preaching using military action against all who oppose our country’s illegal actions in controlling other country’s resources shows how much the Religious Right has taken over Our Country.

    nannymm…
    Ah… Pat Robertson a true follower of Satan if I ever saw one.

    Didn’t Jesus tell us to beware those who come in his name as false prophets?

    Robertson is truly a spawn of Satan and one day he will reside in Hell where he belongs.

    He sure as Hell gives Christianity a bad name.

    Here’s a link on a post about this piece of shit Robertson.

    http://reconstitution.us/rcnew/?p=6685

    Brian…

    What can I say about Rush Joseph Goebbels Limbaugh.

    Well for starters after all he is the Protege of Goebbels and more than likely has Goebbels blood running through his veins.

    All one has to do is just listen to the hate and fear mongering garbage that he spews out of his mouth.

    Same shit Goebbels used against the Jews in Hitler’s Germany we can hear today from Limpballs and all of Limpballs protege’s as well.

    Those would be Beck, Hannity, Palin and all the rest including Nazi Rupert Murdoch and his Nazi News Organization Empire.

    One day they all we be in Hell where they belong. Hopefully it will be sooner rather than later.

    Enough of my rant. Hope everyone is doing well and has a better year then they did last year.

    Take care and …

    God Bless.

  26. nannymm

    A-P, you are the best! You have one helluva way with words. You make your points and make me smile. It couldn’t be better.

  27. nannymm

    LOL@ Brian.

  28. Alright, I just can’t keep my mouth shut. I’ve been doing some more thinking about Max’s accusation that I spout Antisemitism when I called Lieberman Judas Iscariot.

    Those who still lurk at you know where, are well aware of Max’s remarks about Iran and the need to bomb their nuclear facility by us or Israel.

    Max perceives Iran as a threat and believes that we should stop the possible attack by Iran with a nuclear weapon or dirty bomb.

    He believes or so it would appear that Iran does not have peaceful intentions when it says they are only pursing nuclear power and not a bomb. Though if Iran did get the bomb that it would be used as a deterrent against a possible attack or invasion by us or Israel.

    He always preaches how he believes that Iran wants to establish a Grand Caliph in the Middle East and is a threat to the rest of the World.

    Under that idea it is clear that Max is a firm believer of Cheney’s 1% Doctrine. We all remember what the Cheney Doctrine is.

    The Cheney Doctrine states that if there’s a 1% chance that a country or a people is a threat to us we should stop that threat preemptively.

    Cheney said that Iraq was a threat to us, which as we all know now was a lie and an excuse to steal and control Iraq’s resources {OIL & GAS} so he lied and accused Iraq of having WMD’s, which we know Saddam and Iraq did not have.

    Now I would say that under the Cheney Doctrine could we than say that anyone who believes and follows what is known as the Cheney Doctrine would be correct to preemptively attack another county or kill its citizens?

    If so then was Hitler correct in his actions of extermination of the Jews?

    Did Hitler use the Cheney Doctrine? Did the Cheney Doctrine originate with Hitler and Cheney adopted it?

    Was not the propaganda by Goebbels that the Jews wanted to take over Germany and harm Germans legitimate?

    Were the Jews a threat to Germany? What about all the other countries Hitler invaded? Did he see them as a threat to Germany as well under the 1% Doctrine?

    NO it was not. It was like Cheney and just an excuse to kill those of another race and religion.

    Max seems to be on a Christian Crusade to kill all those who practice Islam and if I’m Antisemitic then does that mean that Max is a bigot?

    I really don’t know and I won’t call him one, however one has to wonder what his motives are to follow the Cheney Doctrine.

    Good night all and …

    God Bless.

  29. Max is all about talking at people, not with them. He’s an ass, why do you waste your time?

  30. Big day, it’s going to get all the way up to 40 today!

  31. nannymm

    Morning! It’s even in the 20’s here! But still snowing…

    US immigration policy towards Haitians is shameful. Contrast it with our treatment of Cubans. And Haitians are fleeing a far worse economy and prospects within their own country.

    “US immigration policy towards Haitians is shameful. Contrast it with our treatment of Cubans. And Haitians are fleeing a far worse economy and prospects within their own country.”

    You said it, Dog’s Eye!I couldn’t agree more.

  34. dog's eye view

    Does anyone have a sense of how close the Mass. Senate race actually is? With healthcare in the pipeline, it’s hard to see Mass. Democrats letting the seat go GOP.

    Is this “stir the pot, drive the page views” reporting or is it actually a highly competitve race?

    tentative deal on a proposed excise tax on high-cost,
    employer-sponsored insurance plans to be included in the

  37. You know if you watched Fox, you wouldn’t know a nation had been destroyed. There coverage of Haiti has been virtually nothing! Nothing racist about that, right?

  38. Haiti may end up being the place where Obama earns his peace prize and where Bill Clinton wins his.

  39. nannymm

    FAUX News is disgusting.
    As for Obama and Clinton earning their Nobel Prizes , Obama may earn his in Haiti but Bill has earned a Nobel several times over. So where is it?

  40. I used the language I used for a reason nanny.
