Anything I want? Well I don't know what is current?.... I think the slow response for federal aid had nothing to do with the recipiants skin color. It was just the lack of organization and management from the Bush administration. It wasn't a racist act. As for the celebrities, whatever they can say to lambaste the president, it doesnt matter if it makes sense or not. In my opinion it simply makes them look ignorant. Americans are smart enough to see the president's mistakes without some celebrity with a high school education or less, who think they know more about life than everyone else, to point them out. Please. Shut up and entertain, nothing else.

Re: DemoCat being in the doghouse with Maniac and Linda for her recent comments on the show.
I did discuss this with them in private, and probably shouldn't have brought it up on the air. However, someone had to speak for the more moderate callers who are afraid it will reflect badly on them when Maniac gets on a rant ala Howard Stern, and that the show will be cancelled if the boss becomes too angry. Ron says this is OUR show, as well as his show. It is not just the Maniac's show, although he is MY favorite caller. God forbid, he would stop calling the show as he is probably the most popular "character" and has much to add. We just want for him to exercise a little restraint. Given the mindset of the conservatives, they are likely to equate Ron and the more moderate callers with Maniac when he is on a rant and see us all as left wing radicals. We want the ones we can reach to listen to us rather than to dismiss us and our views. Someone from our side had to be conciliatory and to reach out to the Bobs who might call in
for the sake of the greater good which is the continuation of the radio show. I am sorry that Maniac and Linda feel betrayed.
Ron, I was unfair to you in my comments. I do want to be loyal to Maniac and Linda and I feel that they have been singled out lately. Maniac thinks you have a caller I.D. and that you knew he was your second caller. You must have known in that case that there would be an altercation between Maniac and Bob who came out looking like the victim while Maniac looked like the bad guy. Whatever desire you may have had to please the boss was probably subconsious (sp?). Be that as it may, you didn't have much choice, but to handle it the way you did by turning down the volume on Maniac so Bob could have his say.
What Maniac needs to accept is that you have a political talk show and that's journalism or at least akin to it. Journalists need to be objective and to present BOTH sides. I guess, that JD envisioned the show as one where issues would be debated, but it morphed into a Liberal talk show, a rarity in Bush country. It's to JD's credit that he's kept the show on the air when he is probably facing a lot of pressure from his conservative sponsors and the rightwing GOP powers that be. I can see where you, Ron, are also under pressure to exercise some control over your callers and to not favor liberals over conservatives. Beyond that there can be no debate unless we hear from the other side, too, but they don't seem willing to call in. If Bob is going to be our "token conservative" I say better him than Joe Artesia!!
Maniac, I can't understand why you are wasting your time and energy on Bob. I don't KNOW that Bob is a liar, but I don't agree with most of his views. You have a right to YOUR viewpoint, but I still don't think it's very productive for you to attack Bob in the manner you do. You are plenty smart enough to burst his pro-Bush bubble with facts. Bob has his head in the sand most of the time, true, but not so far that he can't debate us. Besides that, even though he's an easy target because he's one of the few that will come out of his hidey hole, it is like hunting an ostrich with an elephant gun. I believe you when you say that you're a fighter who speaks from his heart. You have much bigger game to hunt than Bob, though (i.e. Bush, Cheney, Delay, Rove, ...) and shouldn't jeopardize your chance to do so.

Ron, often,says his favorite President is Teddy Roosevelt. I like Teddy, too, although mine is Thomas Jefferson. Another person I greatly admire is Henry David Thoreau who advocated Civil Disobedience (Passive Resistance). Thoreau said that "the mass of men live lives of quiet desperation" and I couldn't agree more. He, also, said "There will never be a free and enlightened State until the State comes to recognize the individual as a higher and independent power, from which all its own power and authority are derived, and treats him accordingly." What we are trying to do is to reach out to the silent majority and to encourage them to think, learn, and speak out. We want them to be a force to be reckoned with and to demand respect from our leaders who are supposed to be serving the needs of ALL rather than just the few.
It is time for a "revolution", but that means different things to different people. I don't advocate violent revolution, overthrowing the government, and anarchy. Maybe I'm naive, but I still believe it's possible to work within the system for change. That's only possible if we are united rather than divided (the desire of the opposition is to divide us-DIVIDE AND CONQUER).--DemoCat

Dedanna:
Right on!!! You go, Girl!
DemoCat doesn't want to move to the Right.The Right is a very dark and scary place. DemoCat doesn't want to be head of the vanguard, either. The Donkey, Lonna, and Dedanna are all much smarter and more knowledgable than DemoCat. One of them can be the captain of the vanguard. DemoCat is content to be a spearcarrier.
DemoCat only wants to add one more thing to her previous posts. Ron's boss owns the station so like it or not we have to accept his rules on the show.
Fortunately, we have another forum. The blog is RON'S baby, and J.D. has nothing to say about it. This is a free for all, as far as DemoCat can see, and she has shown that she is more than willing to take pot shots at the rightwingers.
Plus, as we all know, it's OPEN SEASON on The Game!

"All major religious traditions carry basically the same message, that is love, compassion and forgiveness ... the important thing is they should be part of our daily lives."-Tenzin Gyatso, 14th Dalai Lama

The Donkey watched the CNN coverage of the Dalai Lama's speech. The coverage was too short, still the Donkey was humbled and amazed by this man. He will be on Larry King tonight. The Donkey has to work but will research what was said.

The Donkey needs to work on his tolerance, because The Dalai Lamma teaches that; "In the practice of tolerance, one's enemy is the best teacher. and "Compassion and tolerance are not a sign of weakness, but a sign of strength."

The Dalai Lamma also said, “The very purpose of religion is to control yourself, not to criticize others. Rather, we must criticize ourselves. How much am I doing about my anger? About my attachment, about my hatred, about my pride, my jealousy? These are the things which we must check in daily life."

The Donkey must control his anger when he sees people dying and suffering while synchophants gush the praises of Bush.

Hi Folks---re Friday's show---unfortunately was not able to tune in but I do know that DemoCat loves Mr. and Mrs. Maniac, as do I...these things are bound to happen as we progress on the journey called life...but we can overcome them, it's just a matter of how much of a time-out we all need---I fight on an LDS system with pompous LDS bureaucrats all the time, but in the end we all respect each other's opinion...need to keep this show on the air, some form civilty needs to be exercised via ourselves or via JD, I am sure DemoCat was thinking only of this when she called the shot onto Mr. Maniac---you guys know she loves you and I know you guys love her too, bad days in hell are still on the way until revolution---oops, now I am on a rant---God speed and enjoy the rest of today...writer

THE DEMOCRATS' KATRINA PROFITEERBy Michelle Malkin · September 11, 2005 02:19 PM
-->
By Michelle Malkin · September 11, 2005 02:19 PM

From the "Bias? What liberal bias?" files...

On Saturday, CNN.com had a piece titled "Firms with White House ties get Katrina contracts:"
Companies with ties to the Bush White House and the former head of FEMA are clinching some of the administration's first disaster relief and reconstruction contracts in the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina.
At least two major corporate clients of lobbyist Joe Allbaugh, President Bush's former campaign manager and a former head of the Federal Emergency Management Agency, have already been tapped to start recovery work along the battered Gulf Coast.

One is Shaw Group Inc. and the other is Halliburton Co. subsidiary Kellogg Brown and Root. Vice President Dick Cheney is a former head of Halliburton.

The Baton Rouge-based Shaw Group, CNN tells us, is a major corporate client of Joe Allbaugh, President Bush's former campaign manager and a former head of the Federal Emergency Management Agency. Among its Katrina-related contracts are this one valued up to $100 million from FEMA; and this one also valued up to $100 million from the Army Corps of Engineers.

But in their zeal to embarrass the Bush administration, CNN overlooks one very fat and inconvenient fact--and embarrasses only itself.

The Shaw Group, a multi-billion-dollar conglomerate, is headed by Jim Bernhard, the current chairman of the Louisiana Democratic Party. Bernhard worked tirelessly for Democrat Louisiana Gov. Kathleen Blanco's runoff campaign and served as co-chair of her transition team. Another Shaw executive was Blanco's campaign manager. Bernhard is back-scratching chums with Blanco, whom he has lent/offered the Shaw Group's corporate jets to on numerous occasions.

So, why was none of this mentioned in CNN's Bush-profiteers-are-evil narrative? Send them a clue here.

Fortunately for CNN, they weren't the only ones guilty of this glaring omission:
UPI failed to note that the CEO of the Shaw Group also happens to be the Louisiana Democratic Party chairman and beleaguered La. Gov. Kathleen Blanco's most influential crony.

So did the London Observer.
And Reuters/MSNBC. And the CBC.
And the NYTimes (reprinted in the Minnesota Star Tribune, the Houston Chronicle, the Scotsman, and scores of media outlets around the world).

Like I said: Bias? What liberal bias?

The Donkey remembers 9-11-2001. Solemn remembrances of this terrorist attack were across the USA. It is a hard day. The Donkey did not know any one who died that day. To remember those who died on Sept. 11, to honor them, is what the Donkey thought about today.

Today, 11 September, we remember the victims of terrorist violence throughout the world," "May God inspire men and women of goodwill everywhere to renounce hatred and to build a world of justice, solidarity and peace." - Pope Benedict

did you even listen to the Glenn beck clip...

he said he hates about 10 of them...first of all...the cry babies who "cindy" the situation...

and even the liberals I know pretty much hate the people in New Orleans who are free loaders and look to the government to take care of them....but the liberals in Wisconsin must not be as smart as you guys...you guys LOVE to make an underclass of helpless people...I'm sure doing a radio show puts you in contact with poor helpless people all the time...so I bet when you say it is not their fault, you know exactly what you are talking about....

just remember that it is because of programs like welfare and food stamps and "the projects" that have allowed people to be so poor and helpless that they can not take care of themselves...but of course, it is republicans fault for not giving even more to the free loaders so they can by bigger TV's, more expensive shoes...still not buy food, still pay for rent...

but of course I work with these people every day, but it is you working in the radio station that know what you are talking about.

Profiteering ghouls have been using debit cards distributed in the wake of Hurricane Katrina - intended to buy essentials for evacuated families - in luxury-goods stores as far away as Atlanta.
"We've seen three of the cards," said a senior employee of the Louis Vuitton store at the Lenox Square Mall in affluent Buckhead, who asked not to be named. "Two I'm certain have purchased; one actually asked if she could use it in the store. This has been since Saturday."
The distinctive white cards were distributed by the Red Cross and the Federal Emergency Management Agency and carry a value of up to $2,000.

"It doesn't say anything on the card other than alcohol, tobacco and firearms cannot be purchased with it," the store employee told me. "There's nothing legally that prevents us from taking it, unfortunately. Other than morally, it's wrong."

The source told me that the two women who had made purchases with the card each bought a signature monogrammed Louis Vuitton handbag in the $800 range.

"They didn't look destitute by any stretch. You would never have said, 'They must be one of the evacuees.' " The one that I dealt with yesterday was 20. She'll be 21 next month." The source described the reaction of other store-keepers in the mall - which includes luxury brands Ferragamo, Burberry, Judith Leiber and Neiman Marcus - as "outrage."

"It doesn't say anywhere on there, but it would have to be a good amount to be shopping in here," the source said with a dark chuckle.

Here is the attitude and type of person created by our compassionatee" society. We give people the essentials, so as soon as they get the next handout...they blow it on crap....which follows the same mind-set and thought process that put them in their poor situation. We have created this huge class of do-nothings. Liberals give the handouts, conservatives let them do it. So, this is what we get....don't have so much sympathy for them anymore...between the shooting at cops, stealing TV's and buying $800 hand-bags...

Game, Your Michelle Malkin story is a joke...as far as your"lazy welfare bums buying expensive handbags. You have a couple of hearsay instances out of tens of thousands of people. Let me ask you, what do you propose we do with these people. Will YOU give them a job. Would you put them on the street and tell them to fend for themselves. You seem to hate the American system and the generousity of the American people. Why do you hate America and its people so much? Oh I know, you would rather spend OUR money on building an Islamic Republic that has many actually trying to kill our troops. Why do you hate our Troops. You're just a tool.

By the way whippersnapper. I am 50 years old and have lived in the Northeastern part of the midwest, the midwest, the south, the west and the southwest. I am not confined to the radio station and apparently know far more about the problems of the average American than you can possibly fathom.

God forbid that The Game should ever require government assistance. The Game should do some research and find out that welfare in America doesn't even lift people out of poverty. There are far more children living in poverty in this country than there are in most of the countries in Europe and in Japan. And what about corporate welfare? Guess, that kind is Okay, though, especially if it helps Halliburton, so they can give Cheney another $35 mil. for his retirement. Why don't you spout this crap on your own blog and stay off of this one?!!!

Game, I would agree that it is debateable how much we should give to someone and how long we should let them recieve. To make that arguement in the midst of a discussion about people who have just lost everything they have through no fault of their own seems quite heartless to me. Ah Shit that emotion thing again.

To The Game:
When you talk about people on welfare having giant screen televisions, etc. you must be talking about those people who cheat the system by not reporting income, living with boyfriends, etc. Some of them may even sell drugs. There are cases of people who defraud the system by collecting welfare under more than one name or in different states. Surely, these people are in the minority.
The U.S. has MINIMAL assistance to the poor compared to Sweden and France, for instance. People in those countries are appalled by what is happening in America. It is getting to be more and more like the Middle Ages before the emergence of the middle class, or like 3rd World Countries with two classes. A few very rich people and many many very poor people. Shame on you for your narrow views. I hope you never have to learn what it is like to be poor.

Re: The Game being an emotionless "Vulcan". I guess, that's why he has no compassion for the poor as compassion is an emotion. Someone told DemoCat
The Game works with disadvantaged youth. If that's true, he should definitely consider a career change.
Also, re: not responding to him with facts. What good does that (sticks and stones) do, as he ignores them any way. Calling him names hasn't worked either. Maybe we should just IGNORE HIM and he'll go away and leave us in peace.
