Reference to controversial plan to build a Mosque and "community center" in New York City, near the site of Ground Zero. The controversy and outrage comes from the 9/11 terrorist attacks involving Muslims and the victims' families still in mourning. Imam Feisal Abdul Rauf, the man behind the plan, is either extremely insensitive to the 9/11 victims or a truly obscene terrorist sympathizer!
Many people were rightfully appalled when the Ground Zero Mosque received approval from the NYC building commission! Whether intentional or not, the location of Rauf's planned Mosque is really a bad idea.
People who have supported Barack Obama as a candidate and as President.
1.) Voters in 2008 who were smart enough to realize that after 8 years of destructitive behavior from the Bush Administration, we needed a drastic change to restore America to its former glory. These people also were smart enough to know that if John McCain was elected he would continue to lead us on the same disastrous path as Bush43 . These people voted for Obama.
2.) From the time he took office in January 2009, Obama has been working hard to repair the damage Bush caused to our economy and our standing in the global community.
These things take time and patience. Obama's supporters know this and want to help him continue to work for all of us. In the tough times in 2009-2010, some people are wondering about Obama's plans, and wonder why the Bush Depression is lasting so long. His patient supporters still know they made the right choice in 2008. They know it takes time to fix the historic clusterfuck Bush left behind! l
Obama Supporters and working hard to combat the lies, obstructions, and all the bullshit spewing from bushnesiacObama haters and Obama blamers. They know, no matter how bad things are in 2010, if Republicans would have won in 2008 we'd all be in much worse shape!
Richard Laymon, Bram Stoker Award winning American author, (1947-2001)
"If you've missed Laymon, you've missed a treat." --Stephen King
Richard Laymon wrote disturbing, slightly sick and perhaps a bit perverted horror stories. He always took his stories a bit darker and further than Stephen King. He was never afraid of going for the gross-out.
Stephen King, Dean Koontz and Bentley Little were all Laymon fans.
Due to trouble with editors (censorship) in the U.S.A., his work is better known in Europe, Australia and the rest of the world, where his work is published in 15 languages.
Luckily for his American fans, many of Laymon's books are being restored to their original uncut form.
"No one writes like Laymon, and you're going to have a good time with anything he writes." --Dean Koontz
"One of horror's rarest talents" -- Publishers Weekly
An International Bestselling Author, Richard Laymon writes awesome horror stories such as "Beast House", "Darkness, Tell Us," and "The Traveling Vampire Show" and "the Woods are Dark."
An early 2010 decision by the U.S. Supreme eliminated limits on campaign donations from corporations. This decision lead to corporations declaring holy war on incumbent Democrats. Big corporations spent HUNDREDS OF MILLIONS OF DOLLARS on Republican campaigns, mostly through secret "non-profit" organizations and 527 groups. With the help of these unlimited corporate donations, the G.O.P. outspent Democrats 10 to 1. Unfortunately for America, the 2010 Election will go down in history as the nasiest and most expensive mid-term election ever (so far.)
The Corporate Jihad in 2010 lead to the Republicans gaining a controlling majority interest in Congress and an increased minority share of the Senate. The only real winner in this election was the media and advertising firms.
November 2, 2010. A sad day in America.
It is typical for a mid-term election to favor the oppostion party, however due to unlimited corporate spending this year, the G.O.P. took a bigger chunk than anyone would have thought possible. Republicans had a 25% approval rating in 2010. They somehow bought a majority in Congress and made gains in the Senate. Luckily the Tea Party was only able to get 32% of their candidates elected.
The 2010 Election was a major set back for President Obama and a potentially devasting blow to the working class struggling to recover from the Bush Depression.
A term for a common, although, not common enough, fear of Sarah Palin. Unlike standard paranoia, which is an irrational fear, palinoia is a very rational and justified fear!
Anyone who pays attention to politics should realize that there are many reasons to fear the rise of the Palin patriots. As seen during the 2008 presidential campaign, Sarah Palin is frighteningly ignorant of global issues and totally clueless about how government works. She has a cult of clueless fuckwits followers that call themselves the tea party.
These scary people want to undo all of the progress made in the last 50 years!
Those who acknowledge their own palinoia, worry that anti-goverment radicals like the tea party will completely destroy America. A clueless fuckwit should never be allowed to gain so much power, remember George W Bush?
(updated definition) After the2010 Election, Republicans took control of the U.S. House of Representitives.
They then voted to elect John Boehner of Ohio as Speaker of the House for the 112th Congress.
It seems that the G.O.P. plans to undo all the progress made during the 111th Congress!
John Boehner may well be the worst choice for Speaker of the House since Newt Gingrich! His first priority is to repeal the Healthcare Reform passed in 2009!
