Leahy's Alaskan "friend"

Word is that Senator Patrick Leahy is on the potential witness list submitted by lawyers for Alaskan Republican Sen. Ted Stevens in the Washington D.C. political corruption trial about to get underway.

Stevens is accused of accepting gifts from VECO, a big Alaskan oil contractor which provided much of the material and labor for work on Stevens' residence in Girdwood, a ski resort town south of Anchorage. In return, Stevens allegedly did favors for VECO by helping it win jobs and grants. Stevens and family members purportedly received more than $250,000 in "gifts" from VECO.

Leahy's possible participation in the trial was news to the senator on Monday, according to Leahy press secretary David Carle. Other colleages listed as potential character witnesses for the six-term Alaskan senator are Ted Kennedy, Daniel Inouye and Orrin Hatch -- all of them longserving senators like Stevens.

Carle said Leahy and Stevens have little in common politically, but that Leahy counts Stevens as a "friend."

"They've long been colleagues together in the Senate," Carle said. "They've worked together off and on over the years and especially as old-school senators try, in their senate work, that if they disagree with each other, do so without being disagreeable."

Stevens is up for re-election this fall. He is supported Gov. Sarah Palin but is lagging in the latest poll behind his Democratic rival, Anchorage Mayor Mark Begich, 44% to 50%.

Let's take the $900 billion that Bush wants for bailing out Wall Street and give half of it directly to the States so that they can rebuild roads and bridges. Let's give a quarter of it to college students who go into the field of engineering. Let’s give the other quarter of it in the form of tax incentives and small business loans for businesses that are developing renewable energy sources such as solar and wind.

Give that money back to the American people and their infrastructure.
 
Well, now that we Vermonters have bailed out AIG, amongst other distressed assets, we own Stowe Mtn Resort.

Clearly, doogie is efforting on our behalf to get us all free Season Passes, rooms and meals for our troubles.

The clueless, corrupt, incompetent gop scum responsible for this mess don't merely need to be voted out of office, they need to be taken out and shot.

Then we bill their estates for the ammo and the firing squad.
 
Wow Jeff, Threatening the Gov?!?!?!?

Stop me if I'm wrong but I think there is a law against that. Maybe a State Trooper could swing by and help you sort it out.

Mr. Police man, sir.

And what would jw do about Bill Clinton and the dims that have brought us the mess created by Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac? Franklin Raines? Johnson? Will Barack, Dodd, and Kerry give back their handouts? Were they also guilty by not listening when McCain wanted reformd in 2005 and they sat on their hands?
 
George W Bush is the President, and has been for 8 years. Blame, lies with him.

It's foolish to be stampeded into a $700 billion solution to the worst financial crisis since the Great Depression by the very people who brought us the worst financial crisis since the Great Depression.
 
I am not a fan of Ted Stevens but receiving "gifts" of $250,000 is pale in comparison to Raines, Gorelick and Johnson collecting over $200 million while Fannie Mae goes down the tubes- they should also be on trial. Dodds and Barney Frank should be served subpoenas to investigate their roles.
Where's Leahy when you need subpoenas??
 
bubba...

"And what would jw do about Bill Clinton and the dims that have brought us the mess created by Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac?"

I'd remind your ignorant anonymous ass that clueless, corrupt, incompetent gop-scum controlled Congress from 1/95-1/07 and all three branches of the Federal Government from 1/01-1/07 and any events which took place during 2005 and 2006 took place during that period under an incompetent, gop-trash White House and an incompetent, rubber-stamp gop-trash Congress.

That's why ya lost Congress in 2006 and you're next President is gonna be Barack Obama, bubbakis.

Read 'em and weep, creep.

If Fannie and Freddie were a mess, they were a mess under an incompetent, illegitimate-trash gop-scum White House and a clueless, corrupt, incompetent gop-scum Congress who did nothing to remedy the situation.

Furthermore, I'd remind your ignorant anonymous ass that the corrupt lobbyist-scum running clueless mcsame's campaign got more money from Fannie and Freddie than Obama ever has.

Tn other words, bubbakis, you're still dumb, you're still scum, your ignorant anonymous ass has still got bupkis and the facts still ain't doin' your ignorant anonymous ass any favors, little fella.

Thanks for makin' this always such a pleasure.
 
Out schmoozing with his Hollywood pals trying to get another movie role and pick up chicks.

"Furthermore, I'd remind your ignorant anonymous ass that the corrupt lobbyist-scum running clueless mcsame's campaign got more money from Fannie and Freddie than Obama ever has."

At least he worked for his money- Obama's was a hand-out. Davis has not worked for Fannie for over 2 years- it was after that when the stuff started to hit the fan- as soon as the Dems got control of the banking committees- Dodds & Frank
 
jw wants all Republicans shot, it appears. One question, jw....who, then, would provide for all of your entitlements? Bernie? Hugo Chavez? Boots and Michael?

Better not to kill the goose that lays the golden eggs?

Good DAY!
 
Ha Ha! The new issue of Field and Stream gives Doesless a "villian" award for being a big baby and not being able to bait his own fishing hook.

Hope all the Vermont sportspeople are reading their new issue of F&S and taking note of our governor's pansy nature.

Well, nekkie boy, given the fact that their alleged crimes took place on an incompetent, illegitimate-trash, gop-scum President's watch under clueless, corrupt, incompetent-trash, gop-scum Congressional control, just what's stoppin' you from filing charges against them?

Gop-slime cluelessness, corruption and incompetence may have cost you control of Congress, but incompetent gop-scum still controls the Federal Courts and you've still got shrub in the White House with a new stooge AG.

The Federal Prosecutors are still all shrub scum, so, again, aside from no case, no clue and no evidence of criminal activity, just what's stopping you swine from filing charges against Raines, Johnston and Gorelick, little fella?

"Dodds and Barney Frank should be served subpoenas to investigate their roles."

Charge 'em, chump. Don't let the fact that gop scum controlled all three branches of the Federal Government at the time or the fact that there's no evidence of criminal activity on the part of Dodds or Franks or that with gop scum in control of Congress the White House and the Courts, they were in no position to do anything the gops didn't want them to do, nekwit.

Again, I hate to keep confusin' your ignorant anonymous ass with the facts, nekkie boy, but even if Franks and Dodds were guilty of anything whatsoever, it was on a gop scum watch and gops could have and should have stopped them at any time.

They didn't. They aren't. They didn't. They didn't do that, either.

Charge them, nekkie boy. Knock yourselves out. Make this Dem's damned day, deduce bag.

Ya still haven't charged Jefferson for Christ sake. If he broke the law, charge him. What's stoppin' your ignorant anonymous ass, nekkie boy?

Charge the lot of 'em. Knock yourself out.

A blatantly-bogus, polititically-motivated prosecution would take you gops from the minority straight to the endangered species list.

Gee, that'd be a shame.

Knock yourself out. Make this Dem's damned day, deduce bag.

Shrub blew the surplus, ran up more debt than the previous 42 Presidents combined, fell asleep at the switch and allowed 9/11 because he refused to cut short his vacation, still hasn't got bin laden, lied us into an unjustified and unjustifiable war in Iraq that's left us broke and deregulated the crooks who've ripped us off only to walk away with golden parachutes, let the Gulf Cost drown in the Wake of Katrina because he didn't wanna miss clueless mcsame's birthday party or a California fundraiser because he was on vacation and now he's left us on the verge of a financial meltdown, another gop-slime banking scandal and another incompetent gop-slime Depression.

Presiding over any one of them would put him on the short list of worst Presidents in US History.

Presiding over all four makes him a lock and puts him in a clueless, corrupt, incompetent, gop-trash, brain-dead bushleague of his own.

"Where's Leahy when you need subpoenas??"

He only files them against people who deserve them, nekkie boy.

Always a pleasure.
 
McCain is the Hollywood kid. He's been on Saturday Night Live more than any Senator in US history.

He's been on more TV shows, situation comedys, late night talk shows ... McCain the Hollywood Kid.

And all of his top advisors are have lobbied for the banking industry within the past 18 months.

Ya got any more gifts ya wanna hand me on a silver platter, putz?

Nekkie boy, you truly are the ignorant anonymous trash gift that keeps on givin'.

Don't ever change.

Always a pleasure.

The GOP is governing over the biggest financial crisis of our lifetime ... but don't blame them ... they didn't do it! They were too busy fecking up the war on terror!
 
You aren't being honest with yourself if you think republicans are the only ones funding entitlements.

The fact is that at one end of the spectrum, you have many different people who game the system at the personal level. Some of these are democratic city dwellers who are slackers who go from job to job and handout to handout. Others are rural republicans who never have steady work, who go handout to handout, and who spend half the year hunting and fishing like nobody with a real job can.

On the other end of the spectrum are the democrats and mostly republicans who game the system at an entirely different level. These are the ones who make $10 million/yr even when jobs are lost, stock price is down, assets decline, and their performance is terrible. These are the ones who stuff their pockets with money at all costs and without regard to workers. These are the ones who claim patriotism, yet take American workers and trade them for foreign labor. They fill their pockets and leverage US foreign policy and in doing so, they throw the blood of US soldiers into the face of America. They skim off US companies that were born out of American sweat and investment while selling out the American people. These are the ones who made themselves rich by leaving mere skeletons and who now look for a government handout to put back what they took.

In the middle of the two extremes of people are the rest of us. We're democratic and republican and we're footing the bill.
 
Same nameless-nitwit nonsense, different day.

"Wow Jeff, Threatening the Gov?!?!?!?"

I did, eh?

"Stop me if I'm wrong..."

Gee, ya got any more gifts ya wanna hand me on a silver platter, little fraudulent fella?

"but I think..."

Another gift! You're too kind, little clueless-cretin fella.

"..there is a law against that. Maybe a State Trooper could swing by and help you sort it out."

Then, by all means, you'd better do your civic duty and call a cop, schmuck.

Knock yourself out, little nameless-nitwit fella. Make my day, douche bag.

Ah, so your ignorant anonymous ass is back to makin' nameless-nitwit threats to call the Cops on me, eh?

Seems like old times, little nameless-nitwit fella.

That's the one, little fella. The only thing your ignorant anonymous wife-threatenin' ass can't screw up six ways to Sunday.

Make the call. Knock yourself out, nitwit.

Of course, you might have to leave your name and number, little nameless-nitwit fella.

Then you can tell me and the rest of the class what their policy is with respect to crank calls from ignorant anonymous trash with bupkis, little fella.

Knock yourself, little nameless-nitwit fella.

I'll gladly play the hand your ignorant anonymous ass has dealt me, see ya, raise ya and call your clueless-cretin ass's bluff, little fella.

Knock yourself out.

McCain received $20k from Fannie & Freddie while Obama rec'd $125k and Dodds $140k- and you are not smart enough to figure 125 is more than 20!!!
Coop- quit reading your comic books!
The dems have controlled Congress the past two years and that is why all hell broke loose- the Dems have no clue what is happening. Obama included.

Yeah, it's the biggest incompetent gop-slime banking scandal since the last incompetent gop-slime banking scandal and the worst clueless, corrupt, incompetent gop-slime stock market crash/financial meltdown since the gops gave us the gift of the Stock Market Crash of '29 and the Great Depression.

Take 'em out, shoot 'em and bill 'em for the bullet.

No more incompetent-trash free lunches and gop-slime bailouts.
 
"The dems have controlled Congress the past two years and that is why all hell broke loose"

No, you can't pin this on the last two years. The current situation is due to the response to 9/11. But, in terms of a bigger picture, the problem has been snowballing ever since Reagan.
 
I love to hear a useless, career slacker like jw rail against "free lunches"! Why is it none of you leftist deadbeats from out of state ever seem to have a productive job? Count your lucky stars you didn't live in China in the 40's when Mao was consolidating power. Realizing China coudn't support the entire population, the non-productive were rounded up by the Red Guard and were never heard from again!
 
Yeah, but the latest Field and Stream called Doesless a giant mama's boy for being more squeamish then Sarah Palin about baiting a hook.
 
So I take it in the bazaro land you live in this is not a threat Cooper?

"The clueless, corrupt, incompetent gop scum responsible for this mess don't merely need to be voted out of office, they need to be taken out and shot."

Your words pal not mine.

Now I showed you your threat, Show us all where I supposedly made threats against your wife.

Nothing what a shock. Cooper telling more lies. That's almost as unthinkable as the sun rising in the east!

Go away Coop. You smell funny.
 
NEK has left a new comment on the post "Leahy's Alaskan "friend"":

"McCain received $20k from Fannie & Freddie while Obama rec'd $125k and Dodds $140k- and you are not smart enough to figure 125 is more than 20!!!"

What'd Davis get, nekie boy?

Your ignorant anonymous ass does realize that 360K/yr for five years is considerably more than 125K, doesn't it, nekwit?

Shoot, you don't even have to add in McSame's cut of the take in if ya don't want to, little fella.

Davis is Campaign Manager and CEO of the McCain Campaign, nekkie boy.

Is Chris Dodds Campaign Manager and CEO of the Obama Campaign, nekkie boy?

"The dems have controlled Congress the past two years and that is why all hell broke loose- the Dems have no clue what is happening. Obama included."

Nice try, nekkie boy.

Given the fact that no Dem policies have been enacted since 1/07 - if any - have had any effect on alleged crimes taking place in 2005, unless you're claiming that the Dems have a secret time machine enabling to go back in time and commit crimes on incompetent gop-scum watches, your ignorant anonymous ass is, once again, the one without a case or a clue.

The only thing the Dems have been able to do since fumigating and reinstating competence and legitimacy to Congress as of 1/07 is to expose rampant gop-scum incompetence, cluelessness and corruption and prevent their efforts to cover up criminal gop-scum activities and negligence.

Nice try, nekkie boy. No sale.

Like the Depression, this is a gop-scum disaster from start to finish.
We got rid of the most clueless, corrupt and incompetent gop-scum Congress in US History in 2006. In November, we remove the trash from the White House and the Pavilion, increase our margins in the Legislature and restore honor, decency and competence to the White House and the Pavilion.

We'll see about trials and executions for War Crimes and treason from there.

Always a pleasure.

""The clueless, corrupt, incompetent gop scum responsible for this mess don't merely need to be voted out of office, they need to be taken out and shot.""

"So I take it in the bazaro land you live in this is not a threat Cooper?"

And I take it from the fact that I'm still not in custody that the Cops didn't think so, either, little nameless-nitwit fella.

Come to think of it, they didn't buy it last time, either, little nameless-nitwit fella.

Gee, your ignorant anonymous ass ain't havin' any better luck sellin' the Cops on your psychotic-slop than ya are with me, little delusional-dreck dealin' douche bag fella.

"Your words pal not mine."

Gee, thanks for clearin' that up, little fella.

Yeah, I can tell by the coherent theme, correct spelling and proper punctuation consistently absent from your delusional dreck.

The difference is quite striking, little nameless-nitwit fella.

Then, there's the fact that, unlike your nameless-nitwit nonsense, they're supported by fact and evidence.

"Now I showed you your threat,..."

Ya did, eh? And when did ya do that, little nameless-nitwit fella?

Clearly, the Cops didn't buy your BS bluff this time any more than they did the last time.

Evidently, the only thing you're knockin' out is yourself, schmuck.

Why do ya think that is, little fella?

How can the lunatic-fringe likes of your ignorant anonymous ass be so right and the Law Enforcement Community be so wrong?

First, ya have me pullin' the strings and calling the shots for our Freeps Folks Friends, then you're claimin' I'm bubba, nek and half the ignorant anonymous trash community.

Cheer up, chump. Maybe ya can sell the cops on bustin' bubbakis, nekwit, the nameless-nitwit community and the Freeps Folks.

After all, according to your ignorant anonymous ass, we all share the same keyboard, address and phone, little fella.

Do ya want me to threaten Mrs Cooper for ya, or does your ignorant anonymous ass wanna save that task for yourself, little fraudulent fella?

Stay cold, phony boy. Stay cold.
 
I have an idea!

Let's borrow a billion dollars from China and give it to the Wall Street tycoons who have driven their businesses into the ground!
 
Still nothing to support your lies about me threatening Mo I see. Why not just admit you are a nadless lying sack of Cooper and get it over with Jiffy?

You're 55 not 12. Time to start acting your age. Just kidding. I know you don't have the balls for that.

No one needs to threaten Mo Jiffy she's already going through enough hell being saddled with a worthless lump like you.

I feel sorry for her pal. No one should have to suffer so long and so much.

You're just too much of a self centered jerk to get it though. I'm sure you see yourself as the victim.

Mo, the boys and the whole world just being so nasty to poor little Jiffy.

Right Coop? Is that it? Poor sweet baby!

It's not your fault you can't hold a job. Your family refuses to back you up and no one will hire you because they are all just "dumb, scum and the usual rant".

Yeah Jiffy you're a real big deal in your own mind.

Good thing you are stupid enough to believe your own bull or you'd scatter that mush between your ears all over the bedroom wall with a shotgun.

Now tell us more lies Cooper.
