Harry Reid–The Majority Loser of the Demagoguic Party

August 27, 2007 at 5:40 pm (POLITICS)

The jackals of the democratic party have officially become cannibals. Alberto Gonzales has been chewed up, and not one morsel was spit out. He has been devoured. Yet far from satiating the beats of the left, they are now hungier than ever. The smell of republican blood is in the air, and their only reason for living continues.

    a little wordier, but essentially in total agreement with my post…Harry Reod truly is as pathetic a specimen as I’ve ever seen.

    BYW, George Bush can fire a U.S. Attorney because they smell funny if he wants, and no law is broken. Whatever this mummer is looking for is beyond me

    good post

    I have a question. Really. How do we get rid of this congress? I’m not talking about just the one since the election, but the one that’s been about for a long time and has become inbred? I am truly appalled at what has passed for congressional governance for decades.

    Any chance we can do away with Congress…and go a, say….monarchy? I’m just sayin’……

    “… and jacuzzi romps with scantily clad republican Jewish brunettes.” Eric, your blog is by far the best thing going, and makes an old guy recall his single days! Keep up the great work.

    Harry Reid was my senator in Nevada for the five years I lived there. He was a despicable man then as now. I was so glad to leave that state! I also didn’t consider him a devout Mormon–he only played that card around election time. He is the antithesis of what a “public servant” should be. He has labeled himself the “loyal opposition”, but that’s a total fabrication–he simply opposes anything that promotes the best interest of this country. Harry is only loyal about promoting himself, and he doesn’t care how many lives he ruins (politically) or destroys (militarily) to get there. He panders to the most destructive political forces that exist. The hypocrisy of the man is all the more amazing since as a Mormon he should know better. Perhaps he’s playing “loyal opposition” when it comes to God, too.

    Well, I read the post, and I still don’t see what the big deal is about Reid. Granted, there’s nothing all that outstanding about him one way or the other, but to be upset about his handling of Gonzales is laughable. If Reno had done what Gonzales did, you cons would be screaming bloody murder.

    As for the mass murder of the Syrian people – that’s pretty twisted. You might want some help for that issue. Pretty inhuman. I know a few Syrians. They’re nice folks. Actually, they tend to be rather secular, like urban Turks. Very friendly and like us, pretty much.

    Anyways… I’ll tell ya’ what – let’s ask Larry Craig about Reid. Seems to me Craig would know about really believing in something, as opposed to just talking about it.

    I just hate Reid because he and the Democratically controlled Congress was supposed to handcuff Bush and his policies – but they’ve hardly slowed Bush’s policies one bit.

    While I’m sure you all are happy about that fact, I hate it because I thought all this mid-term hoopla was sincere and not just a smoke and mirrors show to get the same rich white old guys back into Washington.

    And I’ve always wondered what the privatization of Social Security would bring about? Would it mean more return? But wouldn’t the risk be astronomically increased also?

    And hey, that’s the Republican party’s fault if they look down on Pro-Choice Repubs – I don’t care if a Democrat is Pro-Life, I find it odd, but eh, I guess that’s what worked for Nevada.

    Cool post – while I kinda disagree and really can’t wait to hear the Whole Story about this Administration, it was a great read, keep it up.

  8. Jersey McJones said,

    Joe, you do understand that the Dems have a very slim majority on the Hill, right?

    And we all know what privatization of SS would bring – a trillion dollars pushed into the stock markets, an extremely risky idea. A Free Market does not feed itself on the government dole. It’s a Fascist/Socialist idea, and a poor one even at that!


  9. Smokin Joe said,

    I realized it was slim, but it is still a majority. But I guess I don’t understand some of the intricacies of gov’t policies.

    And yeah that’s what I thought. The Free Market is too immoral to hold the future of so many American Citizens. Social Security shouldn’t really be a lottery, resulting in a chance of massive gain for people, it is supposed to be a security blanket (in my opinion).

    Plus wouldn’t that trillion dollar surge help out those already heavily invested in Stocks? And while everyone would benefit, the Wealthier would become even more distant and… well… wealthier.

  10. Jersey McJones said,

    Well, Joe, the point I was making about SS is that the government should not be arbitrarily pumping billions of taxpayor dollars into the stock market. The stock market works, ostensibly, because people choose to invest surplus moneys into the private sector. Pumping government money into that syatem defies it’s very purpose – and the purpose of SS. SS is not an investment scheme – not a Ponzi Scheme – it is a welfare program for the elderly, infirmed, widowed, and orphaned. That’s all.


  11. Smokin Joe said,

    I definitely see your point – but I also look at privatizing SS as not only a risky investment scheme, but I can’t imagine that no one would be backing that program for the sole reason of building their wealth (It’s horrible, I know, but no one can deny that there are very immoral and corrupt Politicians out there).

    Maybe I’m cynical, but I can see how a lot of people would benefit just from those trillions being dumped into the market.

  12. jersey McJones said,

    Of course, you’re right too, Joe. Pumping arbitrary billions of dollars into a relatively unregulated market is just begging for theft, graft, and fraud. Just theink of the quid pro quos between Washington and Wall Street if taht ever happened! That’s not cynicism – it’s just plain reality.Most Americans want universal healthcare, but there is zero political impetus in Washington to get it done because the quid pro quo for the cash the pols get from Big Pharma and Isurance makes sure of that. If the government started pumping money into Wall Street, there’s be a whole new lobbying and campaigning industry born of figuring our ways to steal that money.

    When Harry Reid stood in front of the whole world and called illegal aliens ” “Undocumented Americans” I lost any sense of diplomacy for him.

  14. Smokin Joe said,

    Wow –

    Undocumented Americans is quite the euphemism.

    I do believe that our current immigration policy sucks. And needs to offer immigrants a chance to become American Citizens without any trickery or complex language/stipulations. Sometimes I feel you need to become an Illegal Immigrant during the process of Naturalization.

  15. micky2 said,

    Here ya go ! Harry Reid as his best.

    Jersey and Joe –

    SocSec needs to be privatized!

    You’re correct of course that there would be lobbyists and such due to the amount of money involved. Please remember that there is an enormous amount of money currently in the market. That’s why there are lobbyists now. Adding more won’t bring lobbyists and such to that trough, they’re already there.

    You’re also right that someone is going to make an enormous amount of money and benefit financially from privatizing SS. It’s the average American worker and his family and his heirs.

    Run the numbers with a financial calculator. Take a guy who makes $20K a year for 45 years (20 to 65) and invest his annual $1500 (rough estimate – low by a hair, I think) SS tax at 10% and see what he’ll have. Don’t like %10? Run it at 8%, 6% and 4% then. Keep in mind that whatever that total is, when the man is done with it (read – dies) his family gets whatever is left regardless of how old they are and that if he dies before 65, they get all of whatever it is at that point, too.

    Now use any online SS calculator and run the results of $20K for 45 years and compare results. Remember that the money isn’t available for years and if you die before you get to the point where you can draw it yourself, your family gets reduced benefits and if you die after a certain point in your family’s development, your family gets nothing – zip, zero, nada!!

    Privatization of SS would be the single, most effective step in enriching the average American and within a couple of generations of its implementation has the potential to eliminate poverty and lack as we currently experience it in this country (which is not particularly much).

    I know there are downsides to privatization. None of them comes close to overriding the benefits and none of the downsides are any worse for the people than the downsides of keeping our current, outmoded system.

    It’s 2007. Time to move into the 21st Century in yet another area …

  17. Blue Collar Muse said,

    OK – I’m officially confused …

    The post was about Harry Reid –

    Why did I just write a comment on SS privatization …

    And I forgot to reference scantily clad, Jewish, Republican brunettes (and red-heads) …

    Ahhh – It’s early and my A-game is still snoozing …



  18. Jersey McJones said,

    Blue Collar, your moniker is ironic. If you notice, there aren’t many “blue collar” people out there clamouring for SS privatization. In fact, the only people lobbying for this “reform” are wealth elites at places like the AEI, Club for Growth, etc. That, in and of itself should tell you something. Also, you did not address the specific types of problems that Joe and I menationed, other than to just bush them off. The biggest problem you failed to address is my comment on the nature of free markets. Flooding a “free” market with government money IS socialism. The whole point of a stock market is that people who have extra money, put that money into investments they believe will draw a higher return. You can’t just flood the stock market with a trillion taxpayor dollars. It defeats the whole idium of the stock market. I really don’t see what the privatization crowd doesn’t get about this! I thought you guys believed in a free market! Sometime I think progressive liberals like me are more the libertarian, free market capitalists than GOP conservatives!


  19. Smokin Joe said,

    yeah, sorry to hijack the post – but I’ve always been confused with the privatization of Soc. Sec.

    I can see the Upper Class making off like bandits, the Middle class getting a NICE reward for a lifetime of work/investment, and well..

    the lower class gets whatever is left. I feel, if you want to have a comfy nest-egg at the end of your life, work for it. Soc sec is there in case you really aren’t able to make ends meet – not as a reward for outliving those around you (to a certain extent).

    The Hijacking also could be happening because well… what else is there really to say about reid?

  20. Jersey McJones said,

    I agree, Joe (about the hijacking and SS!). In fact, I believe we should means test SS, and remove the payroll tax cap. All this I hear about raising the age, or lowering benefits sounds disasterous to me. people forget – before SS, the elderly in America were the poorest social class in the free world! Now, they are relatively comfortable. It’s too bad we know so litle about our own history. And what about the orphaned, infirmed, and widowed? how would privatization do anything for them? Like a lot of these sort of ideas, I don’t think regular people have really thought it through.


  21. Monica said,

    That explains why Harry Reid hates George W. Bush so much. Bush is a true, born again Christian, and Harry Reid, being a witch, knows it. So, he hates Bush, as all witches, hate and are antagonistic toward Bush.
