Ted Stevens is trying to say he wasn't convicted of anything:
"I'm not going to step down. I have not been convicted. I have a case pending against me, and probably the worse case of prosecutorial ... misconduct by the prosecutors that is known," Stevens said.
How many people in jail awaiting appeals say the same thing? Perhaps we should go ahead and let all of them go. Or perhaps we should go ahead and lock Stevens up and he can wait like any other person for his appeal.
When no matter what you do, you keep sinking. That's the best way to sum this up:
Nearly a fifth of U.S. borrowers owe more on their mortgages than their homes are currently worth - and that number is growing.
20% of American homeowners are in quicksand right now and more are stepping into it. This is why we need to help bailout the middle class. Of course the Republicans will lead you to believe that no one is to blame on this but these people themselves - predatory lending be dammed.
I was just reading this about McCain's day yesterday and it really pissed me off:
“So my friends, all the efforts we made in trying to make sure Americans understood that Sen. Obama wants to raise your taxes and he wants to increase your spending by $1 trillion, was the man who spoke for small businesses all over America Joe the Plumber,” McCain said.
What small business does Joe own? He doesn't and he even lied about the income of the company he dreamed he could buy. Hell this guy couldn't even finish up his apprenticeship to become an actual plumber!
I am a small business owner and have looked very carefully at the tax programs. Barack Obama will benefit me, John McCain will add to the increased pain I have experienced over the last eight years. So Joe does not speak for me, nor any other small business owner I know. He's nothing but a tool of the McCain campaign.
Deuteronomy 5:8, which some people that call themselves Christian might want to refer to:
Did you know that some Christian dingbat has dubbed today the “Day of Prayer for the World’s Economies?” Well here they are, at the Wall Street bull statue thing, praying to Jesus for money. The dingbat has explained, “We are going to intercede at the site of the statue of the bull on Wall Street to ask God to begin a shift from the bull and bear markets to what we feel will be the ‘Lion’s Market,’ or God’s control over the economic systems.” Don’t they know that God taking over the economic systems would be SOCIALISM from SPACE? Also: God will be very mad that they are worshiping a bronze idol here, since his second commandment PROHIBITS THAT, duh? Thank you Wonkette operative “Dan the Man” for the sexy photo.
Don't you just love religion and how it only applies when these followers want it to apply?
In case you missed the late night joint appearance by our former President and next President, here it is:
Yesterday we saw Elizabeth Dole's attempt at painting challenger Kay Hagan's faith by impersonating her voice to make it sound as though she was saying she don't believe in God. Well today Kay Hagan fires back and even brings up some biblical facts to show how Dole sinned.
