Bush, Congress struggle in public eye

By DAVID ESPO, AP Special Correspondent

WASHINGTON – The Democratic-controlled Congress and President Bush seem locked in a perverse competition for public unfavorability, according to a new Associated Press-Ipsos poll.

The survey shows Bush’s approval ratings at 35 percent, and Congress’ even lower, 25 percent. Only 27 percent of those polled said the country is headed in the right direction, and 39 percent said they support the Iraq war, with 58 percent opposed.

The stupidfuckastanis (red state livin’, bush votin’, fox snooze watchin’, repub supportin’, believers in the nascar drivin’ shotgun totin’ jesus) go into rapture whenever a poll comes out showing congress with lower approval ratings then g’dubya. Someone should tell them that there are repubs in congress too. To be fair, we had six years of bush crime family rule with a repub controlled house and senate that caused all the current problems in the first place. That said, the dems have done NOTHING to fix those problems since getting control of both houses, so they deserve as much blame for the mess as the repubs. There were also dems in the house and senate even when the repubs controlled both houses and many of these dems voted for every stupid thing the bush crime family came up with.

Really, both the dems and repubs have totally failed us. They have failed us with their disaster of a war. They have failed us with their disaster of an economic mess. They have failed us with this “globalization” that is nothing more then the race to the economic bottom for working folks, while the pig rich reap all the rewards for our sacrifice. Now that it’s all coming apart at the seams, maybe a bunch of people will learn their economic lesson!

If we had dems in control of both houses since 2000, we still would have the same problems we now have. A gore or kerry would have made no difference as prez. The two parties of the apocalypse both SUCK!

The war has raged on and on and on. Neither party has done a thing to bring it to an end. No matter if the dem or repub celebdidates win the election, the war will rage on…

The world economy is taking a big dive. Don’t believe the rosy picture painted by the cooked books they use to create government economic stats. Inflation is on the rise, just look at how much more you’re paying at the pump and super market. The market is dropping like a rock:

Stocks falls on credit and economy worries

By Kristina Cooke

NEW YORK (Reuters) – Stocks fell on Thursday on signs credit markets were seizing up, threatening economic growth.

An early blow to investor confidence came from Countrywide Financial Corp. (CFC.N). The biggest U.S. mortgage lender said it had to draw down an entire $11.5 billion bank credit line after it was essentially shut out of other credit markets.

All three major indexes fell more than 10 percent below their 52-week highs from mid-July, a level recognized as a market correction by professional investors, as opposed to a signal that a bull market has ended. Bear markets are defined by a 20 percent drop in prices from their highs.

The risky credit card economy is bringing the whole damn world market crashing down. It’s time the idiots in washingtOOn realize that low wages and easy credit are not a good way to run an economy. Working folks need a raise in salary to enable them to pay down their debt and start SAVING. The pig rich corporateers need take a pay cut and a tax increase. Anyone who still believes the bullshit involving taxes and CEO pay spewed by the neo-con-artist economorons is just plain stupid. THE WHOLE DAMN THING IS GOING TO HELL IN A HAND BASKET! As always, we regular folks will pay the price!

Here are the main conspirators in our disaster of a government. There are many other useless bullshitters in washingtOOn, these for are just the cornerstone of the economic and foreign policy house of cards that is coming down hard!

The White House refused to comment on the downward spiral in financial markets, and stuck to its bullshit claim that the U.S. economy is fundamentally sound and should continue to grow. The old timers used to say “just what we need, another damn engineer!” They were talking about herbert hoover, prez in 1929 when the market crashed and the great depression started. I’m sure hoover was saying the economy was fine back then, even as people lost their shirts and their homes! These days we got another engineer in the oval office:


Murderous free-spending (on the military) madman in chief


Vice murderous free-spending (on the military) madman


Lady who does lunch instead of impeachment


Useless jabbering celebdidate who just learned to wave bye bye

We have to rid ourselves of this disgraceful lot and their partners in crime. The two parties of the apocalypse have put us in a terrible predicament. Lets wave bye bye to the whole bloody bunch of them. Lets vote third parties!

The telepathic crickets on the ClapSotronics editorial board hold their breath every time the DOW is mentioned…

  2. The corporate strangehold on our lifestyle will continue. Wal Mart and the rest of the big box stores are like nations. They will simply make the necessary cuts and we will see executives driving cabs. The resilience of the American people will shine through this current crisis. The approval ratings are an indication of a change.
    We need something new.
    Need-not want.
    The emerging economy(green, envirfonmentally based) will be dependant on an infrastructure change . The pig rich are reluctant to abandon our oil and tobacco based economy to the new technological revolution.
    The Tesla roadster, private space flight( Tourism), incredible wireless and nano tech devices will fuel a change, a shift to the powerful future that can be enjoyed by all but is being lived by the pig rich as we speak.
    people in power simply do not want to share. Many of them think that is a limit to comfort and happiness , they think that there is a limited supply of well being and that is strictly determined by distribution of goods and resources.
    A thousand years ago that was true, but not anymore. The world does have enough of everything for everybody. The Earth can survive the human infection if we want it to.


  3. It is definitely unnerving. Our economy is a paper tiger, and I think many Americans get it. A majority still believe the economy is in bad shape despite the propaganda that says otherwise.

    There will always be the House Negroes though who love and support Massa’ no matter what he does.

    When the House goes down in flames they need to go with it.

  4. As long as the world accepts the lie that money is the only basis on which to run things, nothing whatsoever is going to change because filthy rich-ass thieves and liars hold all the cards. The rest of us will continue to bump our heads against an ever-lower ceiling in this rapidly converging crisis. I think that the only way out is if the Earth itself begins upheaval after upheaval to cleanse us of these toxic absolutists. The future looks very, very grim right now. Only after all of this collapses can we really begin a new direction. Unless, of course, we don’t take these unspeakable memories with us, in which case, it could all start over again.

  5. Thanks for the link ClapSo.

    I wonder how long the “patches” will hold out.

  6. Lee Raymond, former CEO of Exxon Mobil, 2005 total compensation……..$48,922,808.00. Yes, that’s 48+ MILLION dollars for a years worth of work.
    Someone tell me what that is per hour. I ain’t got the stomach to run the numbers through the calculator.

    When he retired in 2006, his retirement comp, $98,000,000 yes thats 98 MILLION big ones.

    Meanwhile, the pensions of the rest of Exxon Mobil’s employees remain on tenuous footing. Exxon Mobil’s employee pension plans have one of the biggest funding deficits of all U.S. corporations. According to the company’s annual report for 2005, Exxon Mobil’s pension for its U.S. workers is underfunded by $1.2 billion.

    They don’t call Exxon the Double Cross (XX) company for nothing.

    Doeas this say anything about our corporate society?
    They and certain politicians hold all the $%#$^%# cards.

    Guess who’s paying for all this, you, me and every working stiff when we are at the pumps. Filling an average car is 50 BUCKS.
    Some people are out there working for 5.50 per hour man, probably busting their ass and here’s this guy making more in one &^$#%^$# hour than someone in 6 months.
    That’s just the tip of the iceburg.
    I could go on and on……

    We need a fucking change.

    It’s all about the almighty dollar that’s all and that’s the problem. The rep and dem parties are both in it for the money and power. They just have different ways to manipulate people into supporting them.

    I’m not a religious man but I’ll quote one of the bible’s nuggets of wisdom: “The love of money is the root of all evil.” It was true then and it’s true now.

    Most people are so empty inside that they seek solace in material things. There’s nothing wrong with money at all. But to make it the be-all and end-all of your life’s goal is just sad.

  8. This is something you might be interested in, the Arlington North memorial is coming to Utica this weekend. I am getting involved to help set it up.

  9. WOW! Thanks for the GREAT comments. Some of them are so in depth I’m gonna have to give you guys guest blogger credit for em!

    Dancy, that is clear a plan for us as I’ve ever seen!

    Fairlane, you always hit the nail on the head!

    luminaria, I hope we move toward the light and not into a dark ages. You are correct though, things are looking grim indeed.

    Chuck, I don’t think to patches will hold long. The market has gone up the last couple of trading sessions, but are looking like a crash is coming soon.

    m6fan, yup they take all the cream and dump the garbage on the rest of us. We do need change!

    Realitology, live by the almighty dollar, die by the almighty dollar. There is gonna be hell for the two parties of the apocalypse to pay come election day.

    Greg, I’ll be there. It is as strong an antiwar protest as Utica has ever seen!
