If you have "no place to go," come here!

I thought Bernie Sanders was God, but I was wrong. Anthony Weiner is God.

"It's the amendment of your dreams!" "I dare ya! I double dare ya!"

Listen to the whole thing. And ya know... All the arguments that skewer the Republican ideology on markets... Skewer the half-assed pissant public option just as badly. Listen and shout for joy!

We need one of him in the Senate. A perfect confrontation, just utterly perfect. It's long since been time that it was those opposing single-payer to be put on the defensive. If single-payer is so bad and dangerous, come up with something better, you ratfuckers.

As much as I loved this scene, what Weiner just did there isn't rocket science. It's simply competent political leadership. Now, maybe Nancy Pelosi and Harry Reid and most of the rest of the Congressional Democratic Leadership for the past 20 years are too stupid to do what Weiner just did, but I kind of doubt it. Rather, when I see things like this it just reminds me how corrupt the party as a whole has become because, really, this isn't that hard. I mean, the man is selling Medicare, a program that has existed for 44 years and is wildly popular.

So I guess I disagree with the title that Weiner is God, I just think he looks like one because he's surrounded by so many of Satan's minions.

Yes, my impression was that this is utterly perfect insofar as this is what Democrats are fucking elected to do. This wasn't so oratorical gymnastic, rather, plain straightforwardness that should be expected of elected officials. Though, he did add a little mustard to it with the "I do you" flourishes.

I understand the snarky reference. It can still be overplayed, though. And, it wasn't just the reference. I can see where BDBlue is coming from, that's all.

but sadly, decided not to. It looks like we will be stuck with another round of Bloomberg, friend of tycoons and Big Finance.

rise hotels between the street and the ocean, when, logically, if people are coming for the views, boardwalk, and beach ideally the hotels should be on the other side of the street so people can see the ocean. Hotel visitors can see it from their windows whether the hotels were on one side or the other of the street.

With the approved design, pedestrians and those in busses and cars will see the damn hotels.

Stupid.

Read and weep. My NY apartment is located 500 yards from the footprint of this ass-sucker project.

Incidentally, some of the best indy citizen journalism on the internet is being done by the guy behind that website...
