True to form, Greg.

Ryan Mount

I would recommend to Democrats, as I've recommended to Republicans regarding abortion, to stop with the "Romney/Ryan are lying" trip. Reasonable and moderate people do not believe that anyone here is lying, is evil and wishes to destroy America. Or whatever.

You're just going to alienate and annoy the independents.

I've been very critical of Conservatives and their irrational fear of the Obama they think might happen. It seemed in the past, that they were freaked by what he might do, rather than what he has actually done. Again, we need monsters (see above link).

Now's their (Republicans) chance! Obama is running on the "Just wait for the next 4 years/'We've Only Just Begun'" to fix this mess. (My apologies to the Carpenters). And to some extent, they're trying despite Romney's past incompetence.

Even NYT Paul Krugman came out yesterday with the Karen Carpenter apologia for the Obama Administration. [paraphrasing] "Silly Rabbit, Trix are for kids. This recession is going to go on for a long time. You can't fix it in 4 years!"

Well, I happened to agree with Krugman [gasp]. But that's not what Obama promised in 2008/09, now is it? And I happen to believe they knew this or they were stupid. Either way, why would anyone vote for a liar or a bunch of ignoramuses again. GOP? Are you getting this?

Gregory

" and quit trying to pretend CA state taxes are the average for the entire US"

Never did, Keach. Try reading it again. The national average is 49 cents a gallon, and again, that's just the taxes levied at the pump, not all the other taxes paid. As usual, your superficial and ignorant 'analysis' of 09:12 AM just takes a sliver of information and then extrapolates wildly.

If anyone else here needs more information, just ask. If it is a known real person and not another Keachie sock (we've already had three on this thread alone), I'll be happy to oblige.

Ryan Mount

> I don't for a second think they think Romney or Ryan is lying

Greg. Agreed. Well, some of the disembrained do, right? At least my Facebook Democrats believe it. (see previous sentence) I was speaking from the perspective of a partisan Democrat/operative.

Axelrod is shitting bricks right now. You can see it on his face on every interview. They have no idea how to shift their campaign from "Romney the Right Wing ideologue" to "Romney the right/moderate" (which he is being a Republican from Massachusetts). So they only thing they have the lying thang. And it's going to annoy the independents in the swing states. I think the proof is in the tasting of the pudding watching the swing states move into the toss-up category.

Gregory

"Obama is running on the "Just wait for the next 4 years/'We've Only Just Begun'" to fix this mess."

It reminds me of Nixon's secret plan to end the war in Viet Nam.

Tbetterman

Since one of the three socks is the real Keachie Greg, you are pretty unintelligent. I won't bother to jump through your hoop of changing to the real Keachie sock, as you'll just continue to deny your mistake, any weasel-which way you can, as usual, true to form, Greg. Good thing you fly your plane better than you do your comments. we'd all be at risk.

Tbetterman

BTW Greg, no picture ever, how do we know you are not a sock? Prove your non-sockedness. Sock-it-to-me! Your obsession with socks is much like that of an HIV virus.

Ryan Mount

For the record, I am projected in from Facebook. String theory or something like that.

Tbetterman

So Ryan, you'd have to be a cap or hoodie, rather than a sock, seeing's how you're projected in from Facebook?

Ryan Mount

Libs in downtown GV must be peeved but good. I saw a bunch of new Romney/ Ryan signs in front yards and in windows up and down Mill St. today. Funny.... I didn't see one sign for "O".
I have my " "O" must go" bumper magnet on my right front wheel well right at Subaru and Prius driver's window height. I just look at them and laugh and politely wave when they give me the finger.

Tbetterman

Walt: So you were the guy in the blue grey pickup in front of Staples with the camera a couple of years ago!

Gregory

"I don't for a second think they think Romney or Ryan is lying

Greg. Agreed. Well, some of the disembrained do, right?"

Ryan, both R's and D's have their useful disembrained idiots (Keach, if the sock fits, wear it), but I thought you were referring to the Obama/Biden campaign staff and associated mouthpieces.

Walt

Nope, not me. You never have been good at picking me out of the crowd, even when looking ya' in the eye. Like I said a long time ago. You will never make a good "eye witness". Forget that nice snowy day on the overpass? " where is DM? Ha! I knew he wouldn't show" Sure pulled a "Joe Biteme" there. But your choice of cloths for the day was good for a laugh. Sun hat, shorts, and a Hawaiian shirt.
You know,, when the peaceniks did their little walk, and Cindy Sheehan took a car to the "meeting" instead of leading the march. Also the day when those peace activists went two faced. We informed them that "O" just launched a missile strike.( and just who was the target? OH,, Do remind us.LOL) But since it was "O",, that was fine and dandy. Never mind the signage " No more war". The response I got was, " Obama must have had a good reason".

Gregory

"Libs in downtown GV must be peeved but good. I saw a bunch of new Romney/ Ryan signs in front yards and in windows up and down Mill St. today. Funny.... I didn't see one sign for "O"."

Nirvana Silly left-liberals also seem to be lying low. Paul E had the election called and over two or three weeks ago, and I can't remember seeing any posts of his for awhile. Not since the polls showing how the rest of the country saw the R/O debate a week ago and the chimera of the Obama Sure Thing started dissolving.

I remember at the 4th of July parade I got some chuckles from everyone in earshot when I told my wife that I'd never underestimate the ability of the Republican Party to snatch defeat from the jaws of victory. That's still true but more and more it is looking like it's Romney & Ryan's to lose.

I see Camille Paglia has come out to endorse the Green Candidate, whoever they are. An excellent idea for any left-liberal.

Walt

I have to get one of those multi purpose auto upgrades.
it's called " the trunk monkey" It's worth it's wight in bananas weekly. On the other hand, In those states where things are close, you can be sure to find the "Trunk Monkey" will be repurposed to tally the votes.
And don't even try to spin that into some "race card" screed. A LIB DNC worker has been caught (and fired) for trying to "help" someone vote twice. ( AGAIN)

Here is the vid. of the "trunk monkey" in action.

Rather than backing up what he stated as fact, that the oil companies make more for the ogovernment than they do for themselves (paraphased) Gregory | 12 October 2012 at 01:42 PM can be best understood by reference to the Bob Dylan song, "Desolation Row":

"...and he went of sniffing drainpipes, and reciting the alphabet..." etc.

This trunk monkey will again be working the voting machines at NSJ for 16 hours, start at 6am, for what amounts to $5/hour. I view it as a public service. Pays for Hospitality House if Romney wins. Are Veep candidates picked to avoid premature exits from the planet by the Presidents? Where's Woodsy? Good video, Walt!

George Rebane

This is getting silly. Is 'Tbetterman' yet another label for Doug Keachie that now joins 'TomKenworth'??

Tbetterman

Kenworth is no longer being allowed to log in, despite being logged into Twitter, Typepad keeps saying it is sorry, and yet they can't fix it. Would you like screen shots? I already wrote to you regarding my reasons for semi anonymity. Semi because it bring such joy to GG's braincage to keep posting who is whom.

George Rebane

Tbetterman 1052am - Doug, my main concern is that readers know and can attribute the comments in RR to a certain persona as they look at the comment streams. I have done nothing to block 'TomKenworth' from RR. For whatever reasons you prefer to be a sackhead, I'd like you to keep wearing the same sack so as not to confuse the readership.

Walt

Damn,, Doug,,, I guess that went over your head.( again) So you take up the title of "trunk monkey",, and in the same sentence say you will be "working" the polls. So needless to say, the "ridge" is going to the Dems no matter how people vote, even if they snapped out of their "vote Left at all costs" stupor.

Did you install that trunk monkey button on your Kubota too? ( just in case the inspector shows up.) LOL!

OK pal,, just which skit on that vid was your favorite? Mine was the chaperon, and anti theft, and retrieval.

Tbetterman

I did not think you would have blocked TKenworth. Possibly the twitter account is ticked off that I don't twit. Wordpress and Livejournal take too much time to log in through them, so bear with me, I'll try another one, hopefully the last.

Tbetterman

Walt, you were the one who brought up the idea of having a trunk monkey tally the votes. I was signed up months ago to do just that, basically tending the machine for screwups, it's all done automatically inside the black box, with the paper ballot preserved for recounts if necessary.\

My favorite? The first one reminds me of driving in SF. Someone nixed buying a truck because they are moving to SF. I pointed out that a semi beater truck is great in the city. Littler critters get smushed in the Parking Wars. Maybe we should send metermaids to Afghanistan, to let them know we mean business. A Stealth drone booting a Taliban vehicle would be a riot to see in the morning when they woke up and found it.

BTW, for sale, our Toyota Tacoma 1995 4x4, details here, including possible trade partial for HDMI 1920 x 1080 tv: http://goldcountry.craigslist.org/cto/3335527847.html

Walt

LOL.. I would have never have said I was the trunk monkey on duty.
You do realize there is room in the bottom of that vote tally machine ( you know the one that looks more like an industrial sized shredder) for a chimp to fit, and "monkey" with the votes. I may have to check the back of that vote counter for that button before I cast my vote. LOL!!!!
