Raising the debt ceiling and throwing this country into debt for G.W.Bush’s tasks,
then refusing to raise it for the good of the country NOW — is unintelligent trash.

The more foul play revealed surrounding Rupert Murdoch
makes me wonder more about the ethics of the News station: FOX.

Nancy Grace and HLN News thrive on being racy
and totally missed the juries call as it pertained to Casey.
Having produced all of that fire breathing defamation for ratings.

However, not all common sense slackers are yielding nonsense to get their ratings up.
Some people just lack the good sense God gave them like the obsolete SLIM THUG.

As much as I like to render good words and unbias hugs —
I’m most turned off by what’s under Slim Thugga’s rug.

His rug being his hair, and his mind residing under.
Slim Thug has given us nothing substantial, just a whole lot of foul thunder.

To FART is not an ART:

Read his blunderous thick on CHOCOLATE CHICK
Check out the exposure of his raggedy look on FACEBOOK.

Common Sense is not always applied – though my God we could all use it.
Common sense tells me that a lot of black folk won’t be buying Slim Thugga’s music.

Common sense yields me very little to stand on; to state that Justice is blind is hardly fair.
I can only hope the gauntlet for privacy hacking swings low for Rupert Murdoch the billionaire.

Common sense tells me Nancy Grace knows nothing while yelling and dispelling on HLN.
Common Sense would also be great in CONGRESS to support the U.S.’s economical win.

Common sense these days is looking a lot like a coveted sin,
I’m Qui
Happy Sunday to you, I’m doing The Common Sense Chew; I’m hopeful @ our new weeks begin.

TEAM USA needs a Common Sense WIN!!!

As we enter another season with Bill Maher on HBO, he decides to go LIVE with LARRY KING and boy oh boy is he a star. He received his HOLLYWOOD WALK OF FAME STAR last weekend and the taped excerpts of the event that were played on LKL were hilarious. Bill gave thanks to a few people without whom he wouldn’t have made it: “George Bush, Sarah Palin and the Pope”.

His recent Stand Up: “But I’m not wrong” is on DVD and is pretty enlightening as well. I caught his latest LARRY KING LIVE interview and thought I’d hammer out a few transcripted notes to share with you. The entire interview is about an hour long, so I will likely type out the remainder of it before the weeks end. So without furter adu — let’s begin:

BILL on The Tea Party Movement & Sarah Palin

“Christine O’Donnell was one of our most frequent guests on Politically InCorrect…we created people like Ann Colulter, Laura Ingraham, because we liked to book a lot of female conversatives. They were good press and good for the show. We loved Christine O’Donnell — I still like her, you can not not like her – she is such a nice person. We have a great clip that used to be in our highlight reel of Ben Affleck on that show, just saying “Please Christine – Shut up!” Because I guess she would just go on and on. She was known, back then as the girl from S.A.L.T. [SALT stands for the SAVIORS of ALLIANCE LIFTING TRUTH] and I guess that’s still the stake she claims. Part of me (for sentimental reasons) is rooting for Christine in Delaware – the other part of me is rooting for her because she’s going to get her Christian Ass Kicked in the general elections.

This is the great thing about the Tea Baggers and the Republican Party. A year ago we were debating whether Tea Baggers were even Republicans. Remember, they were very independent and then a poll came out and it like blew the lid off it – ‘Okay they’re really Republicans’ – Of course they’re really Republicans and they’re taking over that party.

Democrats should be very happy that people like Christine O’Donnell are winning elections because in the general election, I think (know the Democrats are going to lose some seats probably a lot), but not as many as they would have if Tea Baggers weren’t winning the Primaries. Because I think voters are generally conservative, (and when I say conservative) they are not really comfortable with people that are “out there” on the left or the right & these Tea Baggers are out there. I’ve said it before, (probably on your show) when people go into the voting booth it’s like getting on an airplane – they get scared. They tend to do things that are conservative in nature, even if their liberal. And I don’t think (even conservative voters) will look at people like Sharon Angle or maybe Joe Miller in Alaska (although AK is a separate place because they‘re very conservative people), but certainly Christine O’Donnell can not win in a state like Deleware because she’s just crazy“.

Larry asks Bill: What do you mean “crazy”, give me an example. Bill replies “Well I just think that people, (they understand our country is in a lot of trouble), even people who are angry understand that crazy people are not going to make it better. Christine O’Donnell like all of these Tea Baggers, have no plan, no agenda, no policy points – they have one advantage: They’re running against Democrats“.

Bill on President Obama [Democrats and whether people trust the government]

Larry asks Bill: What do you make of this whole Anti-Obama thing? Bill replies, “I was talking about it to Jay Leno last night, I said, Jay – Maybe he’s [Obama] not even a mammal, he may be a werewolf Larry – we don’t know that. It was bad enough when we had these people called “the birthers” who thought he was not born here, but I was saying last night I’m identifying this new group — and I call them “the churchers”. The churchers are the people who don’t think that he is a Christian. Larry interjects, “But he’s the first president that has ever issued a press release issued saying that he is [a Christian].” Bill responds, “He’s a secret Muslim Larry. I guess you haven’t being paying enough attenion. When I spoke with him he told me about his plan to use drinking water to sterilize white people. Oh woops! I’ve said to much. I have in theory said the internet and Fox News makes people stupider. The Pew Group did a study that showed 10 years ago Democrats, Republicans and Independents basically got their news from the same news sources…probably more from CNN – then we had this polarity… And now, John Edwards said, we have two Americas – and we do have two Americas. We have the America that’s living in reality – the people who understand THAT Obama is a centist liberal from Hawaii whose trying to dig us out of this hole that we’re in and then we have this other FOX mad drudge Rush Limbaugh reality where he [Obama] is a Muslim sleeper cell manturian candidate who was sent over by his Kenyan father…” Larry interrupts Bill and asks, What kind of intelligent person would believe that? Bill responds “Intelligent people? Larry we’re broadcasting in America – how ridiculous. 🙂

Larry asks, Is there a racist tone to this? Yes Larry it’s extreme racism. Its so funny that the one thing the Tea Baggers hate is when you call them racist – the other thing they hate is BLACK PEOPLE – but they wont say it. If you saw what Newt Gingrich has saying… Okay, for those who don’t know, I don’t even know if I can recount it in a way that makes sense to people…he was quoting from an article by Dinesh D’Souza who’s saying now, (what Newt Gingrich says he believes] is that ‘Obama is getting his philosophy from his father’ (who he spent about a month with –in his whole life when he was 8 years old) and that ‘his father was a loud tribesman from Kenya who was mad at white people’, and so Newt says that he [Obama] is anti colonial. Like that’s a bad thing. Like when George Washington was fighting the British – it was a good thing to be anti colonial.

Sarcasm is Bills ‘everyday all day’,
I’m Qui
just retyping what he and LARRY had to say.
I got’cha back
& I’ll be back with MORE BILL…momentarily.

Tea Party Republican Christine O’Donnell raking in nearly a million dollars in donations in just 24 hours and being advised by Sarah Palin to only talk to “friendly news outlets” [Fox News]. Something like Arizona’s Gov. Jan Brewer who won’t talk about “beheadings in the desert” anymore… Too tough of a subject or simply too false to clarify? How about Nevada’s Sharon Angle (for Senate) who walks out and sometimes runs away from unwanted questions? Christine O’Donnell parallels the aforementioned when confronted with FACTS.

Her interview with a Republican radio host: Dan Gaffney proved to be telling. Did you read the transcribe?

Host: When you were speaking at an out of state group recently and you told them that you won two out of three counties in Delaware, what did you mean?

O’Donnell: I don’t think I ever said I won two…

Host: Well lets listen to the audio. Hold on one second because I have the audio right here.

AUDIO TAPE Transcription

O‘Donnell: I was the 2008 endorsed candidate against Joe Biden and I won in two counties. We didn’t have the support of our liberal republicans then.

Host: You said you won in two counties.

O’Donnell: Alright, you know what that probably was, you’re on the campaign trail a lot, I meant tied.

Host: Well you didn’t tie…

O’Donnell: Um, yeah, they’ve got a tracker following you, waiting for you to trip up…

Host: Yeah but you didn’t…

O’Donnell: So, you know,

Host: Christine. Christine, I’m just saying why, you didn’t tie him either.

O’Donnell: Look at the results. Look at the results.

Host: I did. He beat you. It was close.

O’Donnell: And what did they say? 49-49? I call that a tie.

Host: No Christine, he won in votes. You know that.

Anderson 360 asks the question, “Why shouldn’t those who want to lead us be able to answer tough questions?” Even Karl Rove has pointed out there are plenty of questions to ask O’Donnell about how she’s been handling campaign money, though yesterday he kind of walked it back a bit and said he was just “dishing out STRAIGHT TALK” as a Fox News Analyst, pointing out that he actually did endorse her and that he “is for the Republican in each and every race”, but he also repeated the original criticism.

In a recent FOX interview, Karl said (about Christine’s recent dishonest record), “Then she needs to also be able to answer these questions about her personal background. Explain how she got behind in her taxes, her mortgage, why she didn’t take care of that college bill, and do so in a way that’s frank and honest. Look everybody in their life, sometimes has difficulties and honesty and candor is going to be the best remedy here. She can’t get away with by simply saying, ‘My answer is on my website’ or ‘It’s puzzling to me why the IRS would file a lean for me when I didn’t pay my taxes in 2005’… I mean, she’s got to be more honest than that, and if she does — she’s got a shot to win. But it’s got to be passionate, factual, and hard hitting”.

Gary Tuckman [CNN Correspondent] further explained how O’Donnell has spent some of the money from her 2008 campaign donations and how she may have violated election laws. She spent a lot of money on personal affects. Gary points out an immediate double standard from the mouth of Christine in DE yesterday, when she said to supporters, “America can not spend its way to recovery“, but that’s exactly what she’s doing. Christine has recently written checks from her campaign donations checking account for such petty items like $457.20 for Mileage Reimbursement 3 months after the campaign, (and didn’t own a car at time), $157 for a personal Verizon phone bill, $28 for gas in the town where she lives, $600 for her utility bill, $19.00 at Pipe Lanes (that’s pays for about 8 Games of Bowling), and $6.00 for a meal at Rudy Tuesdays Restaurant and on and on and on. The truth is Christine has no steady income of her own, ( job), but that’s no reason to spend campaign money to pay your personal debts…especially your house note, (which she also did).

Christine can not spend her way to recovery. Perhaps gainful employment will help, but should she be employed in the Senate if this is how she handles money? Isn’t LESS government spending one of her biggest selling points?

In Keeping Them Honest Anderson Cooper tackles the nuts and bolts of political dollars and SENSE. Are you paying attention? Elections are in November.
