      Did anyone see that the MSNBC poll had Ron Paul winning the debate at 50% this morning? The people commenting said they thought he won, and how smart and consistent Ron Paul was? Were they watching the same show? I thought what few questions they asked RP was he seemed too old to be president and very confused. Wnen the others were talking about putting fences around our borders RP said “if they put fences, they would hold people in”? CrAZY TALK TO ME.

        Paulites look to spam any poll. Go to pro-Paul sites and they’d have a list of polls to “freep”, and they’d also probably have instruction of how to vote multiple times ie. delete cookies, mask/proxy IP’s etc.

    Msm mentioned it for ten seconds and then moved on!
    Hmmm!

    • September 8, 2011 at 2:40 pm

      isn’t this the DOJ’s second or third bust on Medicare fraud?

    • 15 hopefruit2
      September 8, 2011 at 2:48 pm

      That is what President Obama means when he says that he’s going to reform Medicare. He’s going to reduce the amount of waste and fraud in the system and eliminate the fraudulent “providers”, retaining the federal dollars for the consumers, where it should be. The PL and MSM are hell bent on distorting the President’s words knowing fully well what he means.

      • September 8, 2011 at 2:51 pm

        Yup! The msm knows that ryans plan will be a big issue and they want to say that the president hates these laws!

        Hi, hopefruit2, the DOJ has been cleaning up big on the Medicare Fraud. If interested, the DOJ department will send you updates daily on what cases have been won. The DOJ is doing so much under Attorney General Holder, but of course, the media is not reporting. So we must get our own updates. We just keep being informed on the excellent job this Administration is doing. This is what keeps me going about our President. Great people working for and around him for all of us. Just go on site DOJ and check your interests and those will be sent to you via e mail. HZ

    • September 8, 2011 at 4:43 pm

      I read about our Illinois arrests—-most were in South Florida, surprise, surprise. There were some interesting schemes. One dr. in my area was a busy surgeon, grad of Northwestern, associated with a respected hospital, and I can’t figure out why he had to bill for services not performed/bill for more intricate surgeries than performed etc. I guess there are greedy skunks in all walks of life and no matter how well they’re doing. I’m glad they nailed them. This has been a huge problem driving up Medicare costs, and other drs. may think twice before trying to do the same.

      Mayor Villaraigosa is a huge proponent of an Infrastructure Bank.

      Here is Rep. DeLauro explaining what an infrastructure bank is –

      There is also a bipartisan bill co-sponsored by Sen. Kerry and Sen. Hutchinson to create an infrastructure bank with as little as $10B that would leverage $600B in spending over time. They would all be loans, so no cost added to federal budgets, and the Fed. Government would only payout loans up to half the cost of the project, meaning the state, local or private investors would chip in the rest.

      The Infrastructure Bank would also essentially replace the earmark process if done right.

      • 26 theo67
        September 8, 2011 at 3:21 pm

        This infrastructure bank leveraging private funds is excellent, because it takes the checkbook power away from Congress, takes away their talking point about government spending and about government taking the place of free markets, and shows all those who are complaining about the rumoured $300 or $400 billion jobs bill that you don’t need big dollars to make big change. This should show those who freaked out earlier this week about rumours that sometimes, we don’t have all the facts and shouldn’t react to media rumour-mongering or framing. I hope this is true – I love it!

    The President will be closing tax loopholes to pay for this proposal!

    • September 8, 2011 at 2:58 pm

      He said it’s paid for. So the GOP will have to say no to extending payroll tax cut to millions of working families ($1000 a year or more in their pockets) because we need to keep loopholes open!

    • September 8, 2011 at 3:36 pm

      This also get out in front of the Super Committee potentially using the money they’d gain from closing loopholes elsewhere. I believe one plan was to close the loopholes but than lower tax rate so it would be a net zero in revenues. Another would have been to use it to cancel any military cuts.

      This “spends” that money on job creation.

The guy at the DMV said he needed to see “activity” on the bank stmt. she asked where is that written. The DMV stooge said it’s what they were told in their training. She asked about seniors and students who don’t drive. He said, they get them free. She asked how come she was not told up front. He said he was told only to say it’s free it someone asks. This is deceitful and should be against some laws. They need to get the ACLU on this pronto.

    Fox News shoves foot into mouth again:

    “Nevada, Sept 8 (IBNS) A US-based Hindu group is protesting against the Fox News channel for reported remarks hinting that Hinduism was a fringe group.

    Channel’s Gretchen Carlson, Fox & Friends co-host, in September seven segment, reportedly apparently labeled Hindus and others as “sort of fringe groups”.

    Hindu statesman Rajan Zed, in a statement in Nevada (USA) on Thursday, said that Hinduism was oldest and third largest religion of the world with a rich philosophical thought and about one billion adherents.

    How such a religion, which gave the world its oldest existing scripture Rig-Veda and yoga (practiced by about 16 million Americans), could be classified as a fringe group, Zed asked.

    Zed urged Fox and its owner News Corporation to be more sensitive when handling faith related subjects, as television was a forceful medium. He asked News Corporation Chairman Rupert Murdoch, Fox News Channel Chairman Roger Ailes and Gretchen Carlson to immediately issue a statement on this matter….more

    While we’re waiting for President Obama’s speech, we may want to “check in” with FDR. Here’s a speech he gave before the 1936 election @ Madison Square Garden … about so many things that PBO is presented with today, such as Republican attacks, an even greater unemployment situation, etc. The entire speech on video is worth seeing, but this is a transcript … here’s FDR’s closing:

    “Of course we will provide useful work for the needy unemployed; we prefer useful work to the pauperism of a dole.

    “Here and now I want to make myself clear about those who disparage their fellow citizens on the relief rolls. They say that those on relief are not merely jobless—that they are worthless. Their solution for the relief problem is to end relief—to purge the rolls by starvation. To use the language of the stock broker, our needy unemployed would be cared for when, as, and if some fairy godmother should happen on the scene.

    “You and I will continue to refuse to accept that estimate of our unemployed fellow Americans. Your Government is still on the same side of the street with the Good Samaritan and not with those who pass by on the other side.”

    Full transcript:

    http://millercenter.org/president/speeches/detail/3307

    Here’s a snippet on video of the “I welcome their hatred” part from FDR (PLEASE DO NOT READ THE COMMENTS); of course, President Obama could never get away with this “language” today, it’s not in his makeup and he can’t appear as an angry black President, but you know he must be thinking it – and he will say it in his way:

    John Brennan: No new prisoners to Guantanamo Bay

    The Obama administration has ruled out sending any new war-on-terror prisoners to Guantanamo Bay, President Barack Obama’s top counterterrorism adviser said Thursday.

    “We’re not going to bring people to Guantanamo,” Deputy National Security Adviser John Brennan told reporters. “It’s this administration’s policy to close Guantanamo and, despite some congressional hurdles that have been put in our path, we’re going to continue to pursue that”…

    Reid turns tables on Obama speech-skippers by setting Thursday-night debt vote

    The handful of Republican members who had planned on skipping President Obama’s jobs address to a joint session Thursday night might have to think again.

    Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) has scheduled a vote for Thursday to proceed on a measure related to the country’s debt – a can’t-miss vote for most members.

    The timing of the vote? Right after Obama’s 7 p.m. jobs speech.

    Reid’s move means that the few Senate Republicans who had planned to skip town Thursday night are now reconsidering their options.

    I don’t know about ya’ll, but if anybody grabbed ahold of my arm like this and had the nerve to wag their finger in my face…they’d be pulling back a nub. I’m just saying.

    For every pundit that says boner is reasonable, is flat out wrong!
    He is playing the Newt Gingrich playbook, but he has a lot more support!
    This guy is the most dangerous house speaker America has ever had!

    Hello folks,
    I posted this near the end of the Wingnut debate thread last night. Don’t know if people saw it. So here it is again:

    WHY WE NEED TO FOCUS EYES ON THE CORRECT PRIZE; MEDIA OWNERSHIP & LIBERAL INSTITUTIONS TO PERSUADE PUBLIC

    I did not have the stomach to watch the wingnut debate, but followed reputable liveblogs closely. One thing is clear: the pundits and some in the left are focused on the wrong issues, & questions. The question should NOT be who won? Perry or Romney? We should ask whether the paltry clown performance tonight has the legs to move the needle on either awakening the passive 98% electorate or galvanizing it in its rabid opposition to Pres. Obama. We should be asking how the debate will be filtered to the people by the corporate media. PERSUASION! That’s how we win or lose with the electorate.

    Message amplification is absolutely crucial to message control. Similarly, having outsized institutional backing is the core of successfully wielding power. I can assure you that the corporate media will be telling us tomorrow the opposite of what people’s lying eyes saw tonight. That is the evil the GOP has perfected all these years.,i.e. the capacity to change narratives as and when they want it.

    Our frustration mostly stems from the fact that PBO has zero institutional backing,and that no matter what he does he gets no SUSTAINED support from liberal relay channels that can both openly and clandestinely reinforce his memes. NO MESSAGE REPLICATION,=Media Blackout on PBO.

    This is where the Tech billionaires need to look long and hard about whether they would want a destroyed America whose technological preeminence was once upon a time the the source of their own techie prosperity. But now no more. Their own survival now depends a lot on not turning the country over to anti-Science loons who cut education dollars just so they could reward prison-industrial complex gurus while decimating our middle class. How about Buffet, Zuckerberg, Katzmann etc. challenge the Koch juggernaut building up?

    Folks we got work to do.

    CNN had a segment asking afghan Pashtuns if they know what happened on 9/11.
    The answer was repeatedly No!

    I know this is an important speech, but Is it bad that I kinda can’t wait to see what FLOTUS where’s tonight. They always seems to coordinate and she always seem to set “a mood” when she dresses for these things.

    I was mostly kidding about perry v paul in my comment, but the paul-ites are not.

    Ron Paul’s fanatics are crazy.
