Posts Tagged ‘SOTU


Oy vey! Today it’s the SOTU – or as I call it, the “STFU.” As usual, I have no interest in watching the Mango Moron spew his ignorance and lies for the 8,000th time. Literally! As of January 21, 2019, the man has told over 8,158 lies since his inauguration, an average of 11.35 per day.

Ah, but what may be worth watching is the Democratic response, given by the fabulous Stacey Abrams…yet another strong, intelligent woman who was cheated out of victory in a transparent case of (say it with me now) Republican. Election. Fraud. Abrams was an unusual choice, given that the respondents both usually hold elected office, and are not African-American women.

That’s what makes it so brilliant.

“I know there were some headlines that characterized her as the future of the Democratic Party. In my estimate, she is the present and the future. She’s shaping the future,” Rep. Ayanna Pressley, who in 2018 became the first African-American woman to represent Massachusetts in Congress, said in an interview with ABC News.

And while Abrams’ defining characteristics set her apart, they also match her up for the current, unpredictable era — one in which the State of the Union is pushed back after a historic government shutdown, and the president giving the address had never held elected office himself before taking office.

“I think it’s untraditional in all the right ways — and ways voters are showing themselves to have an appetite for,” said Jamila Michener, a professor at Cornell University who researches racial inequality and the electoral system. Particularly African-American women, Michener said, who are “the electoral bedrock of the Democratic Party.”

“It’s almost a kind of ‘duh’ moment for the Democrats, and one it’s good they finally had,” she said.

After the triumphant Blue Tsunami of 2018, which women of color played an enormous part in making possible, it seems like the entire Democratic Party is finally overcoming their gender and color blindness to honor their true base.

This awakening does not, of course, include that self-centered screamer who won’t release his tax returns. You know who I’m talking about…the one who’s only a Democrat when he wants to run for office to help elect Comrade Drumpf. Yup, he’s just certain that all his fauxgressive cultists cannot live another day without hearing the same bullsh*t from his yelling pie hole.

Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) will deliver his own response to President Trump’s speech to Congress on Tuesday for the third year running.

The senator’s office confirmed to The Hill that his response will follow Trump’s State of the Union address as well as the Democratic rebuttal and be streamed on Facebook, YouTube and Twitter.

So, not on TeeVee then? Mwahahaha.

All righty then, here’s my plan. Who’s with me?

  1. Don’t watch Drumpf.
  2. Tune in to Stacey. (And, Xavier Becerra is giving the response in Spanish, so you can also tune in to him.)
  3. Ignore #theBernout.

This is an open thread.

Oy vey, oy vey. It’s SOTU Tuesday! To watch, or not to watch? That is the question.

We know the Orange Maniac will lie. That’s what he does, after all. If there is one thing that’s consistent about this demented dipshit squatting in the Oval Office, it’s that he spews BS every time he opens that obscenely puckered babymouth of his. And now that he has chosen to go down the path of Nixon, with his compromised enablers in the House and Senate dutifully pissing all over the Constitution to protect themselves – and him – from the Russia investigation, we are in very perilous times indeed. The extent to which Drumpf feels insulated from any consequences of his actions, is shown in the fact that he decided – based on absolutely nothing – to not impose the sanctions on Russia that Congress passed with an overwhelming majority, and that he signed and agreed to impose.

The last thing I personally want to do is give this psychotic egomaniac the television ratings he uses to try to fill that horribly empty space inside his heart…and brain. But if you’re curious about what he’s saying, don’t watch on teevee – go online and check it out.

Or, you can do this instead.

Let’s see what Twitter comes up with! I’m sure it will be much more edifying than what the Mango Moron spews tonight. And let’s talk about whatever it is we’re watching right here.

This is an open thread.

iceberg1bAnother round-up of the latest news (real news!) because I can’t stay focused. Indeed, with the amount of shit flying around, trying to not get hit by a turd is an increasingly losing game.

Was it only a week ago that the degenerate neo-Nazi racist, xenophobe, homophobe, misogynyst Milo Snuffleapagus immolated? Seems like such a long time because events unfold at the speed of light. If it goes any faster, we’ll jump dimensions… Which come to think of it might be ok! Is there a dimension where HRC is the 45th President?

As Snuffleapagaus was burning his alt-right/white supremacist friends were blaming everyone for the event except Snufflepagaus himself. Evan McMullin, the Republican former CIA operative from Utah who ran for President in 2016 as an Independent was the most common target on Twitter. (McMullin is not a fan of Herr Drumpf.) But last week we learned that the person responsible for Snuffleapagus’ downfall was actually a 16 year old Canadian girl. Considering the level of Snuffleapagus’ misogyny, this is the most delicious bit of information.

I see Milo as this embodiment of the awfulness you see over the past few years with the general tilt of millennial conservatism,” said the teen. “It’s diverged from this traditional conservatism so much. You’ve seen it essentially become full of awfulness and all about attacking the left and not about actual principles. It has nothing to do with conservative ideology so much as it has with opposing the leftists, SJWs, and so on and so forth.

The teen took down Snuffleapaganus without even leaving her house. She used the cyber to find an old video of the neo-Nazi degenerate defending a personal Credo that sex with 13 year old boys is good. Sex with minor boys was a bridge too far for Rethuglicans (if it was girls, I’d imagine nobody would have protested too much…)

How long before Snuffleapagus becomes a pundit on Faux News? The countdown is on.

Agent Orange itself has declared that it will not attend the White House Correspondents’ Dinner. The dinner is an old tradition, sometimes an odd one. The last person to intentionally skip the festivities was Nixon (LOL.) Though Reagan also missed one such dinner. But he had just been shot, so that’s sort of a legitimate reason maybe? Some people suggested this year the dinner should have been cancelled anyway (and before Agent Orange dropped out) because these are not normal times. However, the organizers already RSVP’d filet of sole for their entree, so they remained determined to attend. Although some news organizations (like the New Yorker) said they would not attend and Bloomberg said they would not host the party they have traditionally hosted. But now it’s all moot anyway because Agent Orange will just go to his man cave in Florida and have his own well done steak with catsup.

Meanwhile, the Liberal Media’s love affair with the man who called them “enemy of the people” continues. After the SOTU speech that didn’t include a Nazi salute or public urination by Russian hookers, chuck_toddThe Thing has been declared Super Presidential (capital P, according to NBC’s “little” Katy Tur, who was verbally assaulted by Trump numerous times at his rallies so she needed Secret Service to escort her to her car). Chuck Todd was having orgasms, Van Jones declared that Trump finally became President, might be President for 8 years, and that there is something wrong with Chicago that maybe Trump can fix. No really, these are things Van Jones said on live television and Katy Tur tweeted. And I’m just ready to give up on these people. When Trump builds camps, I hope the Media goes first.

yglesias-tweet

One thing (ok, another thing) that drove me completely bonkers over the last couple of days on twitter were a couple of dudes telling Hillary Clinton and Chelsea Clinton to go away. Josh Barro, a Republican writer who occasionally dabbled in criticizing Trump, said Hillary and her toxic Clinton brand need to vanish, and that he fears Chelsea plans to run for office. Then Matthew Yglesias of Vox also told Chelsea to sit down and shut up. I was told that former Obama staffers Jon Favreau and Jon Lovett, who host a Pod Save America, declared that Hillary Clinton’s video after the DNC vote was terrible and she needs to go away. So what do we learn from all this? Men from Right and Left still hate Hillary and now hate Chelsea. The responses to Yglesias and Barro were great. Mine has accumulated a few hundred likes and re-tweets.

A story that has vanished from the headlines for a few weeks was the Yemen raid. Now you can bet that if this raid had happened under a Democratic President,

owens

William Ryan Owens

Chaffetz and Burr/Nunez would have been chasing administration officials with pitchforks. But because it’s Agent Orange, who authorized the mission over dinner, went off to watch “Finding Dory” and left Jared Kushner to oversee it, it’s ok with Rethuglicans. Trump even used Owen’s widow as a prop at SOTU. Everybody swooned. Even though earlier in the day he blamed the Army for his death (“they lost Ryan”) and we learned the intelligence gathered was useless. Seems the one person who isn’t taking this shit is William Owen’s father. Bill Owens says he refused to meet with Trump.

 

Why at this time did there have to be this stupid mission when it wasn’t even barely a week into his administration? Why?” the father said to the (Miami) Herald.

For two years prior, there were no boots on the ground in Yemen — everything was missiles and drones — because there was not a target worth one American life. Now, all of a sudden we had to make this grand display?

We shall see if this story, which our own Prolix has been trying to keep tabs on, will ever have the light shone on it.

Another story that has vanished from the headlines was Standing Rock – and it’s end. Last week government forces moved in and removed the last of the protestors and razed their camp.

A live stream from independent journalist Unicorn Riot showed officers in military fatigues and riot gear marching through camp, some with rifles drawn, while a helicopter hovered overhead and heavy machinery began demolishing remaining structures.

Restarting the construction of the pipeline was one of Agent Orange’s first actions after 241bbae37747429f8c7363aaaf989428_8taking office, overturning the previous Obama halt to what is sure to be a natural disaster. Not to turn it into a partisan issue, but most Standing Rock activists supported Sanders and denigrated Clinton. That was not helpful in the election and if Clinton had won, she certainly would not have overturned Obam’s decision to halt construction of the pipeline. It’s just another reminder that elections have consequences. And in a great piece at Esquire, Charles Pierce articulates what so many of us have been feeling: do regretful Trump voters (and, as far as I’m concerned, those who voted for Stein or Johnson) want our sympathy? Yes? Well, fuck you! No really, go eat a bag of dicks. (Sorry, sometimes these things need to be said.)

They all had the same choices we did. They all had the same opportunity to inform themselves; I mean, it wasn’t like the campaign was under-covered, and it wasn’t like the eventual winner hasn’t governed precisely the way he campaigned.

Elections have consequences. I thought we already learned that in 2000. But… here we are. Many of us saw the icebergs. Now we’re sinking. And there aren’t enough rafts.

 

 

(Head hanging low) My post from yesterday was such a boring big fat donkey biscuit, I felt I owed everyone another post. I admit there is very little logical symmetry exhibited in this thinking: Write a boring post, say you’re sorry by writing another post. Something just doesn’t follow in that logic. Go figure.

Alternate ending

Since everyone and their dog did a response to the SOTU, here’s what I wish Obama had said in place of the red state/blue state redux from the 2004 Democratic Convention speech. The following would have come at the end of the SOTU where he reprised the passages about Congress being full of good people who want to serve — blah, blah, blah.

Here’s what I wish he had said:

 

Folks, I got it wrong when I started this job in 2009. It’s not that I haven’t tried my best, because I have, but I put too much stock in my ability to win over the hearts and minds through the force of my personality. I thought my ability to give a good speech, always use logic, and be “no drama Obama” would win any argument. I was wrong. Really wrong.

Because I believed people would always work from a position of good conscience, I wasted the best part of my first two years where Democrats controlled both the House and the Senate. I should have listened to Nancy Pelosi since she never once lost a vote on the House floor, but I didn’t.

Because of my kowtowing to the belief I could bring along the Republican caucus by being infinitely reasonable and being a really good guy, when faced with an economy in free fall, the Economic Recovery Act was too small. Krugman and other economists told me it was too small at the time, but I didn’t want to piss off Boehner and Cantor and Paul Ryan. The Recovery Act was the right thing to do and it has finally pulled us out of the Great Recession, but had we passed a larger package with more infrastructure spending and jobs, the recovery would have been faster and more sure. I blew it there.

Because I was so sensitive to being compared to Bubba Big Dawg Clinton, I wanted to do it my way. My way didn’t work and I should have listened to Bill and Hillary — getting the housing market stabilized should have been job one and made part of the Recovery Act. That was dumb on my part.

I’ve told people we are just one big American family until I‘m sick of saying it. That’s hogwash. Families care for one another. Everyone is working toward the same goal. In families, there is an absolute hierarchical order. That’s not true in Washington and it certainly isn’t true here in Congress.

For that matter, government isn’t like a business either. In business, everything is based on stock prices and profit margins. There’s a CEO and a board from which there is no appeal. If you don’t like someone, you just fire them. If they aren’t doing their job, they hit the road. I can’t fire Congress and short of impeachment, you can’t fire me.

Truth is government and governing is as rough and tumble as a football game. Guys hitting guys so hard and for so long they can cause brain damage. So why would someone look forward to hitting someone play after play after play? It’s not money because high school and college football players aren’t paid. It is about winning.

SOTUI’ve finally learned that. Governing isn’t about being the smartest guy in the room or the most logical or even the most liked. Governing is about winning. Football players line up, they hit hard, sometimes they hit dirty if they can get away with it, they see the other team as their mortal enemy. It’s the same here in Washington because politics is about power. Power is the only thing that consistently greases the wheels of Washington. If you don’t believe that just watch an episode of House of Cards.

I’m not blaming Republicans because Democrats have been just as obstructive and obstinate in the past. Democrats just aren’t as good at it.

Politics requires Congress to work like that. As much as I wanted you Republicans to fall into line and give me the respect I dearly craved, to do that would have meant lots of you House members and Senators would have been out of a job in the next election. That wasn’t a secret, I just thought I knew better. That was stupid.

It’s like the story about the scorpion and the frog where the scorpion asked the frog for a ride across the stream. The frog was skeptical from the get go, but the scorpion promised not to sting the frog because it would mean the end to both of them. Sure enough, halfway across the stream the scorpion stung the frog. Before the frog drowned, he asked the scorpion, “Why did you sting me?” The scorpion said, “That’s my nature, that’s what I do.” Well, I’ve learned, that’s just the nature of politics and that is what both sides do.frog and scorpion

I could ask you to change. I could plead, cajole, and exhort you to reinvent yourselves, but Congress can’t change its very nature. What I have learned is this: The sort of change we need won’t be found in this building or this city. The sort of change we need can only be found at the ballot box.

So this is what I’m going to do for the next two years. I’m not going to posture and pretend to be doing stuff for the sake of appearing relevant. I’m going to stump this country from one end to another and what I’m going to talk about is making it easier to vote. I’m going to talk about registering people. I’m going to talk about voting by mail, voting over the internet, getting people to the polls. I’m going to talk about holding elections on more than one day and holding elections on weekends. If we are going to get over this obstruction and stagnation, we have to have a higher turnout than 40%.

Policy doesn’t mean squat if it’s not implemented and it will never be implemented if politics of stagnation and obstruction continues to rule Congress. If our ideas are good enough, we will win. If Republican ideas are better, then they will win. In either event, over time the ideas will get better. That should be the way it works. That should be the nature of what we do.

At least I’ve learned that much.

God bless you and God bless America.

Take the conversation in any direction you might like.

Good afternoon Widdershins. Being the midwife to the midweek post, I have the opportunity to recap and summarize last night’s State of the Union address. If you would like a serious breakdown of the President’s proposals, you can click here and here. Otherwise, if you want to partake in some of my foolishness, read on.

Given that orange is the new black who'd thought both the President and Speaker would be persons of color...

Given that orange is the new black who’d thought both the President and Speaker would be persons of color…

The voices I sometimes hear were on a rampage last night. This ability to hear and translate these voices is not a natural talent. It is a skill I picked up following decades of hoisting tumblers slightly larger than the Exxon Valdez filled to overflowing with the nectar of my friend Glen — Glenfiddich.

Last night my cranial rabbit ears were finely tuned. The voices I picked up were transcontinental in character from the well-heeled neighborhoods with Palm accompanying Beach or Springs in their names, Nob Hill, or just about anyplace in Texas with the exception of San Antonio. My friend Glen’s nectar has given me the apparent ability to eavesdrop on these conversations. The following is what I heard last night in reaction to the SOTU.

There was a lot of chatter from around Bentonville, Arkansas. Best I can tell that chatter was centered around the proposal to plug what is probably the biggest loophole in the whole tax code — the “Angel of Death loophole”. It is so named because when the merciful Angel of Death visits those with gazillions of dollars, she brings with her an exemption worth dying for. Truly, it is a loophole to die for — just ask the grateful children of the dearly departed. It is called, “Stepped up basis.”

All the chatter from Bentonville was probably the Walton family. Here’s how it could have worked for them or the Steve Jobs family or the Bloomberg family or the Koch family or any of the 3,200 other families it really affects. You see, this exemption isn’t just about the 1%. It isn’t about the top one-tenth of the 1%. It really only affects the most Jetson of the jet set — the .001% of the 1% or about 3,200 families.

Here’s how it would have worked with the Waltons. Say old Sam paid $1.00 for his stock in Wal-Mart. Sam worked hard, was successful, didn’t even take a salary. Over his years of hard work, his $1.00 stock became worth hundreds of billions of dollars. Having never cashed his stock, when the Angel of Death delivered her tax exemption at the end of his time, the stock and all of its appreciation from $1.00 to hundreds of billions of dollars passed to his children. Tax due from his children on his stock appreciation — a big fat Z-f’ing-ero.

Angel of Death and IRSSo all that appreciation, essentially employment income, is lost forever as a tax expenditure which is the fancy name for a tax loophole. It is a tax expenditure because those who enjoy it are looking over their shoulders at ordinary people to pay the taxes to operate the government, pave the roads, put boots on an Army, and educate the workers of the country. The same country that enabled them to become so obscenely wealthy.

There was also chatter from the rarefied walls of boardrooms around another proposal. This carping was about returning the capital gains tax rate to 28%, the exact same rate it was under St. Ronnie, husband of Nancy. Here’s the breakdown: Just 400 households, four-hundred, are getting 16% of all capital gains with the top one-tenth of 1% getting half of those. The stock market has more than doubled in the aftermath of the 2008 financial implosion and the total increase envisioned here is 4.2%.

If you totaled up the two proposals — getting rid of the Angel of Death loophole and the slight increase in the capital gains rate, 99 percent of the money comes from the top 1%, with 80 percent of that coming from the top 0.1 percent. The same set of people, in large measure, who caused the financial upheaval and certainly the people who have most benefited during the ensuing years.

The other big voices were from Wall Street bankers. Boy oh boy were they soiling the silk drawers the Bush bank bailout bought them! These voices were complaining about a proposed 0.07% tax on the borrowing of banks. It is ludicrously cheap for the big banks to borrow money and then turn around and gamble it. If that sounds familiar, it is exactly what happened from 2003 through 2008 when the financial world exploded throwing the economy into the River Styx.

This proposal would be an incentive for the big banks to put themselves on a diet and perhaps even break themselves into smaller banks. You will hear lots and lots of talk about this, but here’s the kicker — it only affects banks with assets over $50 Billion dollars — about 100 banks total. Ending this big bank advantage ought to be something America’s smaller community banks should love. We’ll see.

What is on the other side of these proposals? Middle class things like tax credits for married couples with children, boosting the Earned Income Tax Credit, increasing child tax credits for preschoolers when child care expenses are the highest, favorably changing higher education benefits to help families with college-aged children, and the big one — making the first two years of community college free. Investment in the middle class and replacing “trickle down economics” with the catchphrase “middle class economics”.Caller ID for the voices

So you ask, “What are the chances any of this will become law?” About the same chance of success as a shaved-ice kiosk on the surface of the sun in the middle of July. Here’s the point — none of these proposals are welfare. None are entitlement driven. Most have been championed at one time or another by the Republican party.

These proposals are aimed at the middle class. The revenue adjustments are squarely aimed at the 1 percent and more accurately, the top one-tenth of the 1 percent. If anything, perhaps a national conversation will occur.

As a nation, that is a conversation we need to have and not just one imagined in my head.

Take the conversation in any direction you, or your own voices, may want.

Post-SOTU, after I recovered from Chatblu’s drinking game, I noticed an odd meme making the media rounds. The idea was that the Movement Formerly Known as Occupy Wall Street (now known to many as “Occupy”) was responsible for Obama’s embrace of economic populist themes in his speech last Tuesday. Here are some of the stories on the subject.

Obama Channels Occupy Wall Street (US News & World Report)

Occupy Wall Street may be gone from Zuccotti Park, but it is not forgotten on Capitol Hill. You can draw a straight line from the Occupy Wall Street movement to President’s Obama State of the Union address Tuesday night.

Occupy’s Influence on Obama’s State of the Union Address (In These Times)

Income inequality was a major theme in President Obama’s State Of The Union address last night. As I wrote yesterday, the fact that politicians are now openly talking about class in America, a country almost absurdly proud of the fact that its citizens don’t discuss class relations, is a major triumph of Occupy Wall Street and other economic disparity-focused groups.

Obama called economic fairness “the defining issue of our time,” adding that “we can settle for a country where a shrinking numbers of people do really well, while a growing number of Americans barely get by, or we can restore an economy where everyone gets a fair shot, everyone does their fair share, and everyone plays by the same set of rules.”

That message of fairness has been at the heart of OWS since day one, and the widespread uprisings provided a framework in which the president could finally get specific about his proposal for a “Buffett Rule”: 

“…a requirement that anyone making more than $1 million a year pay no less than 30 percent in taxes. And, he added, anyone making less than $250,000 a year – the case for 98 percent of American families – should not see a tax increase…”

Obama’s speech echoes Occupy themes (SF Gate)

Linking the dominant themes in Obama’s nationally televised address Tuesday to the mantras of the Occupy Wall Street movement would have been unthinkable five months ago. But in having its message echoed in the State of the Union address, the Occupy movement reached a milestone in changing the national conversation.

“Once you say the definition of my campaign is fairness, you don’t have to say anything else,” said Lawrence Rosenthal, an expert on social movements who directs UC Berkeley’s Center for the Comparative Study of Right-Wing Movements. “It is the central tenet” of the Occupy movement, he added.

What I find odd about this meme is not the fact that Occupy is getting all the credit for something that has been, ahem, brewing for several years. The Tea Party, in fact, was partially about economic fairness. (The lefty  Coffee Party often states that the Tea Party’s goals and its goals are about 50% aligned. Obviously, this is not because they agree on social issues.) We all know that the civil rights movement did not, in fact, start with the refusal of Rosa Parks to sit in the back of the bus. But her courageous act was the spark that ignited a long-burning fire. So it was with Occupy, which was first ignored by the media, and then, after horrifying photos and videos of police brutality against Occupiers became widespread, became as trendy as FaceBook. When the well-compensated bobbleheads on CNN burble on about “the 99%,” you know that the national conversation has, indeed, changed.

No, what I find odd is that people seem to believe that because Obama talked like a populist last Tuesday night, he has actually become a populist – and they imply that Occupy has created this effect. I can’t help but wonder, are people’s memories really that bad? Or are they desperate for some sort of reason to throw that lever for Obama in 2012?
