Coffee Table

we've simply watched what has been effective for you guys. After decades of being polite while limbaugh and bunch lowered the rhetoric to gutter level we've come to the conclusion that hate speech is effective in swaying opinion so take that you bigoted fascist, the truth hurts you sack of treasonus nazi excrement.

Oh, Ron! The things you say. :-)
Is this an imitation of The Donkey talking to Game? Gotta love it.
(Admit it, you laugh along with the rest of us when Donkey posts to him!)
Anyway, Linda Maniac called me this am with a story from "Democracy Now" for those who are interested. (www.democracynow.org)
Amy Goodman, the host, interviewed Laura Berg who has been a VA nurse for 15 years. Ms. Berg, who lives in Albuquerque, wrote a letter to an Albuq. newspaper, "The Alibi", shortly after the Katrina disaster. Her letter criticized Bush's handling of the disaster and the Iraq War. Well, after the letter's publication, news spread up thru the channels of the VA to the FBI which investigated
Ms. Berg for sedition for daring to express her opinion. They impounded her work computer's hard drive (although her letter was written at home). Amy also talked to Larry Kronen, an atty. with the NM branch of the ACLU. Hopefully, Sen. Bingaman will get somewhere with an investigation into the VA doing this. The story was done today, so check out the website to read it.
As I said, on the previous coffee table, Lonna and I are hoping to have a demonstration for the 3rd Anniversary of the war-meaning sometime around March 20. She will be back mid-next week, so will talk more, but she wanted me to get the word out, as we would like to have a decent turnout. Out of towners, welcome, too, Dedanna. We will keep you updated. Hopefully, we will not be taken away by the Patriot Act before the protest.

Ciao!

Anyone who laughs at Donkey is almost as pathetic, hate-filled, and void of any meaningful or rational thought as he is.

A comment about Donkey from people with brains:

I don't understand the Donkey most of the time. I pretty much ignore "it". It doesn't represent anybody or any thinking I'm aware of. So I ignore "it".

And that comes from a liberal...the conservates already know how much a waste of time people like Donkey are.

Well, I tried once again...not worth trying to debate with you people...

you say the same stupid crap over and over, never actualy respond to anything besides saying Bush is stupid, a lair, a criminal, in an illegal war...ya, and thats not "talking points"

And Ron seems to have starting taking intolerant, mind numbing pills...he used to be able to say a few intelligent things, now just repeats the same crap all the other far left wing moonbats say.

Again, look who's talking.

Anyway, dc, would love to go (really wish I could, need a break desperately), but have some serious computer work to get done this weekend, and visitation with my grandson.

Hope it turns out well though, and let me know when the next event comes alone, ok?

Take care.

Game, mirror mirror

What i am trying to say Game is Games up. Don't have time for people who fail to realize, even with a rational explaination, that this country is in a huge sack of shit right now. It's obvious to even the most casual of observers. It can't be all the "libs" fault when the "cons" have all the power. It's time to quit arguing about it and do something about it. If you want to continue to debate we'll see you in the future.

Is the donkey seeing things? Did the Lame Game post that a liberal has some brains? What will his fellow bloggers think of him now?

The lame game made the Donkey laugh.

He posted "Anyone who laughs at Donkey is almost as pathetic, hate-filled, and void of any meaningful or rational thought as he is. " As far as the Donkey knows, the game is the only one claiming to laugh at the Donkey. That spell check program on the lame game's computer can only spell. Too bad the lame game can not buy a logic check program for his posts.

Lame game, it was a simple insult, how could you mess it up so badly? If you wrote "laugh with the donkey", then it would have been a decent retort. How did you manage to survive high school?

Matching wits with you is about as challenging as shooting pen raised quail. The poor quail lives in a cage until the monent he is released, he spreads his little weak wings to fly, right into a shotgun blast. Sure there is a load bang, and some blood shed, but not much skill is required. If the donkey drinks a few before posting, maybe the lame game would have a chance. Oh who is the donkey kidding?

From the same comment line on the smirking chimp:

" Admit it. You just don't like the fact that the Left kicks back some times. You give what you get. The Neo-Con movement is the movement that truly "hates us for our freedom." Frankly, Scribe believes the Left has been acting too much like pussies. They need to kick harder, be nastier and give you all what would be a constant rhetorical version of a razor blade embedded coloscopy."

Not exactly what the Donkey would say.

I have to laugh at Donkey's posts because they are FUNNY. But, a person has to be a WHOLE wit to appreciate the depth of Donkey's wit. What does that make you? Instead of posting neo-con propaganda on Ron's blog you need to go looking for your missing sense of humor. You take yourself way too seriously.
Also, hope all you Roswellites remember/remembered to vote. I heard there were going to be paper ballots for those who voted early, but no, was an electronic machine. :-( (Please, Goddess, let my vote count this time!) Ended up voting all Dem. Decided that I had to go with JS's experience and hope she isn't anti-union like I heard. (Sorry, Donkey.) Anyway, at least SHE was smart enough to be a guest on "Roswell Says". :-) Did anyone else?

Letterman's been doing some good segments on Bush. Just did "A Day in the Life of
George W. Bush in India". I liked the one where Bush was supposed to do meditation and when told to empty his mind he said, "Hey, I'm way ahead of you." LOL

Dear Scary Cat:

If you had listed to Ms. Stubbs on Roswell says, you would have heard what she did to the city workers unions.

She lied to get the support of the police and firefighter unions. The night she voted to break the unions, a audio tape of her lies was played at the city coucil meeting. The city council meeting was televised and the donkey kept a video of the meeting. One could look it up in the city's public record, and the transcript clearly show her statements for voting against the union. Her statements on the radio last week about her reason she voted against the unions are lies. The donkey does not reward liars.

The only mayoral candidate who has not hurt the unions is Brown. Why the police would endorse council members who decided to hold the cost of living to 2.5% is a mystery to the Donkey. The firefighters and police were given raises to some more senior workers. The city council is very good at dividing the firefighters, police and blue collars. The donkey had hoped the police would have remembered that is how they were able to break the unions the last time in 1999.

None of the incumbents have helped the blue collar union or the police and firefighters. The donkey hopes the all the city workers vote for Elaine Pape, Corine Oropesa, Virginia Garcia, and George Peterson. None of these candidates have lied to the unions, and the Donkey knows none have lied to him.

The donkey will be voting for Mr.Brown solely because Mr. Brown has not harmed the unions. The Donkey has spoke with Mr.Brown and had decided Mr. Brown is a reasonable man and is honest. He has no experience with unions and has told me he does not know much about them. To the donkey, Mr. Brown is the only choice.

The donkey heard a question about how Lagrone got rid of the blood from the bodies in the funeral home. Ron did not think it had much to do with running the city.

The routine disposal of human tissues and body fluids collected during the embalming process directly into the Roswell's sewer which eventually takes these fluids to the treatment plant where they are processed. The process does not sterilize the waste. Some pathogens survive.

The funeral homes dissolve the solid human byproducts and body fluids extracted from the dead during the embalming process until the liquid Human Soup is fluid enough not to pose a clogging danger to the sewer drainage system. This is the only treatment of these human remains prior to their being discharged into the drainage system. Their sole concern is the blood flows away from the business.

Biomedical Wastes are regulated in the health field and in those regulations is clearly defined as the contaminated needles, gloves and other such laboratory paraphernalia, but this definition does not include human tissues and body fluids extracted and/or collected during the embalming process, therefore the disposal of these is exempted from those regulations.

On a daily basis, each funeral home produces about 120 gallons of this waste per dead body. The breakdown of this waste is reported to be as follows:
0.5 gallons of embalming preservatives including formaldehyde, which is toxic stuff and a proven carcinogen.

1 to 1.5 gallons of water (as a diluent)

1 to 1.5 gallons of body fluids (blood, urine, abdominal fluids, etc.)

15 to 20 gallons of water used in the process of extraction of body fluids

80 to 85 gallons of water used to wash the body of the deceased

Of course the people that have the most contact with this are blue collar city workers and who really cares about them anyway.

People use the processed waste to feritlize the parks and golf course. Something to think about when one sees kids playing in the grass. Home gardeners use the waste to grow thier tomatoes and other foods. They claim nothing else works as well.
The country club uses the water to irrigate its grass, I wonder if the golfers know this. They be walking over part of a relative they buried the last week.

The donkey thinks how the city deals with biohazards a legitimate question, too bad Ron did not.

To Donkey:
Well, I had to think long and hard about who I would vote for for mayor. I have heard that Brown is a neo-con who supports Tom Delay, etc. My best friend's fiance got some info from the Brown people which she read and was horrified by. How could a rabid Bush supporter support unions when Bush and Co. are out to destroy them? My problem with Judy was the union issue and I did listen to her on the show and liked what she had to say. I don't want La GROAN (sp. intentional), so it was Del , a mod. Republican, or Judy. Even in the voting booth, I was still wavering, but in the end, it was knowing how much experience she has and not knowing anything about his that decided me. Looks like you and I cancelled out each other's votes. (sigh) Also, I asked a couple of people (won't mention names)who the Dems were
endorsing and got no help, so voted for Larry for judge. D'ya think HP is running scared? What's with all the billboards? He's not running for Governor after all. Also, did you see the letter from Foley/Gardner in the Fri. RDR? Hiss! Any animal in the ANWR is worth more than the anti-environment loudmouth Foley as far as I'm concerned-even a lemming. If he could do anything but criticize Richardson, his constituents (thank Goddess,I'm not one) might have more respect for him.
Peace!

We did have all the candidate for mayor on Roswell Says. With what I heard here is my conclusion. Brown is actually quite progressive. At least he talks that way. I just was uncomfortable that he had the depth of knowledge to fullfill his plan. Maybe next time. Sam Lagrone basically said what we are doing is fine...status quo. Del Jurney seemed pretty reasonable to me. He also seemed to be the one that wanted to be most responsive to the people. I think he'd do all right. Judy seems to be on fire to do this. As a matter of fact the only thing that scares me about her is that she may get too busy, if you know what I mean. I don't know that she will and I trust she won't. She seems the most skilled and best prepared.

God bless my senator Jeff Bingaman for his courageous vote in favor of liberty concerning the patriot act. And by former senator Tom Harkin! :-)

To the scary cat;

While Brown may be harmful to the City unions, Stubbs has already voted against them and is trying to break the one we have now. Since you heard the show did you remember Ms.Stubbs say several times, "I know who he is"? Some one called the donkey's workplace to complain the donkey should not be calling the show. The donkey worked the previous weekend and was off work that day. It does not matter because the donkey was not on duty at the time of the call.

The donkey's identity is fairly well known. I chose the name because I wanted the people to hear the Donkey's ideas, read the posts, and decide if the ideas had merit without my name being tied to it. With my unique voice it was quickly apparent to people who I was. The attempts to muzzle the donkey have been crude. With the internet and blogging, it is impossible to silence the Donkey.

Well, OK. I'm sure YOU know who Scary Cat is (this is my name 4 posts to Lame Game-hiss!). I recognized your voice on the show and no, I didn't know anyone called to complain about you. Tim told me you were supporting Brown and why. I still don't see how you can believe a neo-con lover will support the unions once he is elected. Judy said she didn't oppose city workers, etc. unionizing and collective bargaining. My dad was a construction worker and belonged to a union, as have other relatives. I have belonged to a union in the past. I am very pro-union, so I had misgivings about Judy. However, I refuse to vote for any more conservative Republicans. I might have voted for Del, but I had no idea what kind of experience he has in local government or if he is pro-union. Unfortunately, Judy was (apparently) the only one with enough smarts to appear on Ron's show and the others waited til Sat. for another news show AFTER I already voted. She has lots of experience and belongs to those organizations where we would lose someone who did. I had to look beyond the union issue, Donkey, and be practical about who I would vote for. Sorry if it burns your cookies, but it was my vote to cast. :-)

Uh oh. Didn't see your post, Ron. (BLUSHING) WHEN were the other candidates on? I don't remember it being announced on The Fox. Oh, well. C'est la vie.

Does Tony play requests? I emailed KSFX to request that song, but don't listen 24/7, so don't know if it was played or not.

To dc;

Ms. Stubbs has and will continue to oppose unions. Her actions and votes clearly show she is anti-union. Her pro-union statements mean little compared to how she voted. Ms. Stubbs is a Democract in name only. It is not just the union support she lied about, it is just the only lies the Donkey has on tape. The Donkey does not think she will win.

The Donkey did not say Mr.Brown would support the unions. Mr. Brown is the only one that has not hurt the unions.

What "burns the donkey's cookies" is how quickly people sacrifice their honor for a little power.

If just the Democratic "girls" stuck together, they would control all the state and local offices. They would also occupy every federal office including the White House. Instead they act like their male conterparts and work very hard at undercutting each other for a small gain. In short, the problem with "girls" is they act to much like men.

Roswell politics. The candidates that won for better or worse are part of or supported by the Roswell establishment: Chamber of Commerce, Redcoats, Masons, and perhaps most importantly, money from Phelps Anderson - Repub Party Head, Oil $$$. The more of these you have going for you the better your chances of winning. See where the money for campaigning came from. The opponents of the Roswell establishment (not necessarily endorsing any of them) divided their vote. Add that to the lack of their own organization and the establishment being very organized and the outcome was a given. It also would help if New Mexico allowed or if it is allowed that Roswell would have Runoffs in races where no candidates receive a majority. It would also help if Roswell, maybe all of New Mexico, was more informative of political procedures and if New Mexico were to reform its tedious election procedures. Understand that the current Municipal Judge got much of his establishment support by showing his Republican credentials in front of the establishment people and orgs. Not in front of everyone though because it is a "non-partisan" election. Right?
A little final note. Brown got much of his economics formal education at Auburn. Its Econ Dept and affiliates are well known as supporters of the Austrian School of Economics and neo-con ideology.

2 Dedanna:
Well, I am kinda teasin' Ron, here because I know where he spends most of his time (Moo!) and I know that at least some of it is before the talk show, so it would be in the am when he's too tired to pay attention. Anyway, I understand that Ron has perfected the art of being in two places at one time, so to speak. :-) Guess, YOU'D know what I mean. (I honestly would've been happier NOT knowing myself, was happier with my illusions.
:-( (sigh))
Speaking of disillusionment-the farce we call a local election is over and done with. Having invested myself somewhat by helping the city council candidate for my ward, I may be more depressed than I would've been. What we've got is status quo-all the GOP incumbants plus a new conservative GOP mayor. At first, I was just freaking out-they cheated AGAIN!-but then had to admit to myself that it was the usual thing-voter apathy. Heard it was something like a 26% turnout for the registered voters. Almost surely, the rich Republicans and the deluded fundamentalist Christian Republicans turned out. It seems the people who are most hurt by the status quo that favors the rich/attracting senior citizens and no real progress, plus this unbelievably awful municipal judge were too lazy and too apathetic to come out and exercise their constitutional right to vote and make a difference. Pathetic! Maybe they had something better to do like watch videos of braindead reality shows or the anal cyst guy.
My friends, the Maniacs, ended up going to 3 different places before they were allowed to cast their votes. The first time B. voted, the machine wasn't even turned on. L. says that if they hadn't had a car, they would've had to walk too far. That kind of thing probably prevents a lot of people from voting, especially poor people who are more likely to vote Dem, Ind, or Green-it's disenfranchisement. Also, L. says that Delay was elected in the TX primary. Gah! It's enough to make me want to prick my finger on the spindle of a spinning wheel and fall asleep until the end of The Bu$hrat's Administration, however long that takes.
Anyway, I hear that Pineda who won re-election is incompetent, capricious at best, possibly corrupt, is not even close to being fluent in English (this is an American court, dammit!) or Spanish, and doesn't even have a law degree. I urge everyone to write to his/her Sen., Rep., and to the governor. The law needs to be changed so that judges are APPOINTED not elected, so that competent people will be running our courts.
Also, glad that Lonna has made it back safely (wonder if there is any point to protesting here in Apathy Central) and bet that her call musta made your day, Ron. :-)
Hope today's show went very well.
Peace and Ciao, all!

Also, re: funeral homes-well, I am torn between cremation and having my ashes scattered or donating my remains for medical research, so hopefully, one way or another treating my remains may not contribute as much to the problem which sounds really gross.
Also, I am disgusted by the number of people here who are buried at the cost of tens of thousands of dollars to their loved ones, but cremation isn't as cheap as it used to be thanks to the rise in popularity and the funeral industry's need to make big profits.
Anyway, I think funeral customs are tres morbid. I want an old fashioned Irish wake-a party- and a simple memorial service. After all, I hope I will be going on to a better place and that's reason for a celebration not mourning.

"A little final note. Brown got much of his economics formal education at Auburn. Its Econ Dept and affiliates are well known as supporters of the Austrian School of Economics and "neo-con ideology."

The donkey read this about Auburn:

"Based on academic quality, the Economics Department, in the College of Business, was ranked 123rd in the world in 1999 by the Journal of Applied Econometrics. Auburn was rated ahead of such international powerhouses as INSEAD in France (141st) and the London Business School (146th). Auburn's MBA Program in the College of Business has annually been ranked by U.S. News and World Report magazine in the top ten percent of the nation's more than 750 MBA Programs."

Yes Auburn and the "Austrian School" are related.
"The Austrian School is a school of economic thought that rejects opposing economists' reliance on methods used in natural science for the study of human action, and instead bases its formalism of economics on relationships through logic or introspection called "praxeology".

Its most famous adherents are Carl Menger, Eugen von Böhm-Bawerk, Friedrich von Wieser, Ludwig von Mises, Friedrich Hayek, Murray Rothbard, Israel Kirzner and Hans-Hermann Hoppe. While often controversial, and standing to some extent outside of the mainstream of neoclassical theory — as well as being staunchly against much of Keynes' theory and its results — the Austrian School has been widely influential because of its emphasis on the creative phase of economic productivity and their questioning of the basis of the behavioral theory underlying neoclassical economics.

The Austrian School is generally associated with groups that label themselves classical liberals or libertarian in their ideas of social, political and economic organization."

Now if some one can explain, in terms a donkey can, understand how neoclassical economics is the same as neoconsevative political thought, the Donkey is all ears.

Some people educated at Auburn include:

# Kathryn Thornton (1974); astronaut, second US woman in space, spacewalk, STS-33, STS-73
# Thom Gossom Jr (1975); actor
# Cynthia Tucker (1976); syndicated columnist, Atlanta Journal-Constitution editorial page editor
# Jan Davis (1977); astronaut, STS-47, STS-60
# Rheta Grimsley Johnson (1977); syndicated newspaper columnist
# Bill Holbrook (1980); cartoonist, "On The Fast Track", "Safe Havens" and "Kevin & Kell"
# James Brooks (1980); 4-time pro bowl NFL running back
# Rowdy Gaines (1982); Olympic gold medalist, world record holder and television sports commentator
# Tim Cook (1982); Apple Computer COO
# Susan Nolen Story (1982); President, Gulf Power, A Southern Company
# Tim Dorsey (1983); author
# Donald J. Boudreaux (1986); economist
# Harold D. Melton (1988); Georgia Supreme Court Justice (appointed 2005)
# Jimmy Wales (1989); founder of the Wikipedia
# Mark Thornton (1989 Ph.D.); economist
# Kimberly Page (1990); American actress & professional wrestling valet
# Bo Jackson (1992); 1985 Heisman trophy winner, former professional football and baseball player
# Johnny Micheal Spann (1992); first American killed in combat after the U.S. invasion of Afghanistan
# Willie Anderson (1996); NFL offensive tackle
# Mark Spencer (1999); President and CEO, Digium. Creator of Asterisk PBX.
# Stephen Huss (2000); 2005 Wimbledon Men's Doubles champion - the first ever as a qualifier
# Carnell Williams (2004); professional football player
# Ronnie Brown (2004); professional football player

The Donkey used wikipedia to learn about Auburn, who educated Jimmy Wales (1989); founder of the Wikipedia. Wikipedia is the Donkey's favorite site.

The neo-cons have used libertarian and to some extent neoclassical economic and political thought to sell their anti-government message of free markets, which in reality of course are controlled markets for global corporatists. Also, used to be sold as neo-liberal. Same product with different packaging. IMF and World Bank types still use the neo-liberal label some. The bottom line is that these economic theories and systems do not put the real needs of real flesh and blood people as the primary concern. Among others, Dan Baker has some good concise analysis of this on the internet.

Country music: actually lyrics are all pretty much the same as anything on ksfx. Usually about love or love lost. The only difference is the vocal stylings and the musical arrangement. I(with a few exceptions) rarely listen very closely to the words of a song. The vocals, to me, is just like another instrument in the song and I hear it as such usually. I can enjoy all different types of arrangements. I just tend to prefer music that is more uptempo and faster most of the time over mellow music. Music with more power as opposed to soft. That is where I usually discriminate if discrimination comes in.
It is also why I don't listen to country when in the music as pleasure mode. Lots of it is too soft for me. I like a lot of it though.

Yeah! Yeah! Yeah, Ron! We all know you like heavy metal, Van Halen, etc. and how you feel about Barry Manilow and The Monkees. :-( That's where we differ as I love love songs and poetry (lyrics are poetry).(Did you read the lyrics to "Time After Time" yet? )I have given up on hearing emailed requests when I can't even get the music director to play it during his show!! :-( Guess, if I want to request one I will have to call the station. Anyway, I suspect I have developed an extreme aversion to Country because it's the favorite music of evangelical Republican conservative Bu$h supporting anti-intellectual redneck cowboys and cowgirls. Give me The Beatles and The Eagles anyday. (Still say that "Hotel California" is the best rock song ever!)
Anyway, noticed you ignored my last post about the commericials. (sigh) Tell me if you do one, tho, so I will be sure to watch for it. OK?
Peace!

Well, hey, if you do ever star in a local commercial and know you're going to be on TV let us know. OK?
Also, what are the names of the hosts/DJs on The Fox? Does it tell on the website? There's you, Tony, JR, Joe (?), and who else? I noticed that KBIM has photos of the DJs on their site. Does or will KSFX?

I think it's www.roswellradio.org, but I just do a search for Roswell Radio and click on the one with the stations on it. If you click on the stations KSFX and KMOU and then click on DJs you can see pictures of Tony, Ron, and Jade.
