    • Five Hundred Million Dollar Negative Yield Bond Issued
      No, central banks aren’t screwing the economy up with their purchases: Veolia (Paris:VIE) has issued a 500 million 3-year EUR bond (maturity November 2020) with a negative yield of -0.026 %, which is a first for a BBB issuer. To be clear, central banks didn’t buy those bonds, investors did. But central bank purchases of […]

Good thing that Palin b*tch didn’t get elected, huh?

obama-feminist

 


Remember last year when the Forces of Darkness almost put “Rape Kit” Sarah and her scary lady parts in the Oval Office? Luckily, the Obamacrats spread the word that Bible Spice and her Crypt Keeper running mate intended to restrict women’s right to choose, and truth, justice and the American way were saved!

 

Just imagine what would have happened if Caribou Barbie was PILF – we might have gotten a health care reform bill that was a give-away to the insurance companies and cut-off funding for abortions (but not Viagra.)

This is what feminists look like

 


Thankfully, Barack Obama used the same “99 Problems but a b*tch ain’t one” mojo that vanquished the diabolical She-Clinton and put that Palin bimbo where she belongs.

 

As Naomi Wolf said, it was Christmas, New Year’s and Hanukkah rolled into one:

This was the plan all along

Glenn Greenwald finally gets it:

That’s obviously true. In fact, it’s so obviously true that no matter how dumb one might think Democrats are, they’re certainly not so dumb that they failed to realize that the GOP was highly unlikely to help Obama pass health care reform no matter what the bill contained. From the start, it’s been obvious to everyone — the Obama White House and Senate Democrats included — that the GOP would not help Obama pass health care reform. Why would the GOP want to help Obama achieve one of his most important and politically profitable goals? Of course they were going to try to sabotage the entire project and would oppose health care reform no matter what form it took. Everyone knew that from the start for exactly the reason that it was so obvious to Benen.

The attempt to attract GOP support was the pretext which Democrats used to compromise continuously and water down the bill. But — given the impossibility of achieving that goal — isn’t it fairly obvious that a desire for GOP support wasn’t really the reason the Democrats were constantly watering down their own bill? Given the White House’s central role in negotiating a secret deal with the pharmaceutical industry, its betrayal of Obama’s clear promise to conduct negotiations out in the open (on C-SPAN no less), Rahm’s protection of Blue Dogs and accompanying attacks on progressives, and the complete lack of any pressure exerted on allegedly obstructionists “centrists,” it seems rather clear that the bill has been watered down, and the “public option” jettisoned, because that’s the bill they want — this was the plan all along. (emphasis added)

Well no shit, Sherlock! That’s why I keep saying – “Failure is a feature, not a bug.” I’m glad to see that people smarter than me are starting to figure it out too.


One more time:

“Because that’s the bill they want — this was the plan all along”
