    You forgot to mention numerous assasination attempts by numerous assholes. And that's not funny.

    Most will be "organized" by people that couldn't find their butts in the dark with both hands. Fear not. Or at least not too much -- that is the job of the security detail, they're good at what they do.

    Well, the LAST ones planned to be dressed as the Penguin.. except all white tuxes, apparently just to make the color point. Fortunately for all of us, these idiots can't resist bragging about what they plan, and people no longer take it as idle bullshitting.

    UNFORTUNATELY for all of us... that means you cant talk about the possibility, either. Same as you better not say 'Hi, Jack!' when you run across your friend John on a plane.

    Payback's a bitch, huh?

    Seriously, I would much rather not WONDER about that stuff.

    If we had a media that actually did their jobs instead of licking Howard Dean's and David Axelrod's asses.

    But since all I do is read and think... and you have the formal education to back you up, why not just come out and assure us: "Barack Obama is NOT a Socialist of asny kind and Bill Ayers has had, and will have, no political influence on him."

    purely anecdotal but, I think, indicative of some. Though I agree; after 3 years of Obama, she probably wont have to worry about putting gas in her car.

    Couple more things to expect in the Obama/Reid/Pelosi first four years, by Charles Krauthammer, stealing my Nov 5th post thunder a little:

    - great reduction of annoying conservative talk radio on local airwaves. May not affect Rush a WHOLE lot {but a lot more people will know who Ed Schultz is}... though his response to reactivation of the 'Fairness Doctrine' will be notable. I have the feeling he's got something planned that will make news.

    - unprecedented increase in union membership. 'Large men come to to your door: "Sign this".'

    Those arent hard to predict.. practically a lock.

    -more- No... he's not 'rabid' about it.

    what an absolute load of steaming horse shit!

    Instead of coming out with less and less believable boogey-man tales of what would happen if Obama were elected, HOW ABOUT SOMETHING POSITIVE RESULTING FROM A MCCAIN ELECTION. And don't just put "wont happen" next to everything you just posted.

    Well, you're on record, buddy! You just said those wont happen and I'm seeing 'boogey-men' when both Reid and Pelosi have said those two are foremost on their agenda... I assume you're talking about those 'two things that will happen'. Guess what... if McCain wins, but Reid/Pelosi get that supra-majority, they will happen anyway. He'll pick his fights and he aint gonna fight over those.

    Strangely... hmmm... I cant point to ANYTHING that's a definitive certainty on a McCain win. Why? Because it's difficult to argue effect of 'less than....'.

    Unless you argue that he can get through a change in Securities Trading Oversight that essentially put Derivatives Trading in Las Vegas instead of Wall Street.

    okay, I'll bite. Show me the Reid and Pelosi statements indicating that the two plans foremost on their agenda are shutting down right-wing talk radio hosts and sending thugs to force people to join unions. Once I see direct quotes in reputable press or view them making statements on U-tube, I'll back off.

    Oh, and I didn't say "a definitive certainty" I said something positive. I'll make it easier. Say three things positive about a McCain presidency that don't evoke Obama boogey-man references. Or are you so negative about everything, you can't see anything positive about anything?

    I wanna know why the hell you're attacking my premise on this and I have to make the effort to prove the obvious. You're the one with the Educator credentials.

    Let's address Union Card Check issue ... because it already passed easily in the House and failed by one vote in the Senate. Dubya would have vetoed it.
    Thus if I were Reid or Pelosi it would certainly be first on my agenda... wouldnt you say it would be the first on yours?

    I make my 'thuggery' reference based on the fact that I've carried three different Union Cards in my working life. And most of my generation family have been Union members.
    It obviously crossed George McGovern's mind, as he felt strongly enough about it to write an op-ed for the WSJ.

    Look at this argument FOR it
    on a Progressive website... and read the comments. What it comes down to is the same-old dem saw that any effort to argue against a union shop is intimidation... any argument for a union shop is altruistic. And exhortations to redress same by litigation! Ever watch what happens when someone tries to sue a Union? Employers, and we're talking about 50-100 employee shops, are FAR easier game!

    Fairness Doctrine? Fair enough, it may not happen... here's the definitive give'n'take on it from a 'broadcaster oriented' site.

    So Obama is not on record as supporting it. Reid and Pelosi dont want to talk about it.

    Still.. it WILL be introduced in both houses should Dems have the full con. However, in light of current media technology there's a question as to whether it would be worth it in terms of perceptions.

    Like I said it wouldn't affect Rush other than to give him a talking point, he can easily afford to subsidize Ed Shultz. If he decided to go that route.
    Do you agree with that premise? But here's the kicker... I actually THINK about stuff like this and I guarantee Schulz would have to be FIRST in the lineup. Do you get what I'm saying there? Schultz, for damn sure, wouldn't be in drive-time.

    It would be the end of Neal Boortz on local radio, though. In fact talk radio would be down to just Rush and whoever he picked to be his counterpoint. Maybe Hannity and Colmes would be joined at the hip on the radio syndication, too.
    Colmes wont be in drive-time, either. In Columbus Hannity was dumped from drive-time after a short run. For good reason, he's boring and elemental to the point of agony.

    Notice I am not dragging the current foof over seats on the Obama plane into this. It's silly. He has the right to boot whoever he wants.

    Sorry, Don... Chuckie "run that bank' Schumer was on Fox News this morning and they asked about the likelihood of the Fairness Doctrine coming back..

    He immediately responded: "We dont allow those stations to put porno on, do we?"
    Do you STILL say I'm seeing Boogeymen, or is it your position that it's no big deal if it comes back.

    That's a rhetorical question, of course.

    Course, to Don the fact that question was asked on FNC speaks volumes. MSNBC or CNN didnt ask it, so it's unfair.
