RayNLA lays down the hammer to the six percenter who said realtors on commission are "superheroes"


Ka-plam! Ka-booshie!

Someone just got PWND!


"Now look were we are! Now we have you along with Hank Paulson calling yourselves heroes? I got an idea for you. Call one of your clients that you sold a house to in July of 2006 and ask him if he thinks you are his hero!!!"

-RayNLA, laying down the hammer of truthiness, February 2010

February 27, 2010

245,087 realtors on commission down, 1,112,645 to go




A nice 18% cull in the past few months.

Got buggy whip?

Got ramen?

Got internet?

[Memo to REALTORS - Life's too short to lie and deceive for a commission. Life's too short to be a REALTOR. Go find honest work. You'll be glad you did. Maybe a job that doesn't spell its name ARROGANTLY IN ALL CAPS. Or one where you don't have to put your glamour shots photo on your business card]

Got Monkey?



(have I mentioned that I can't stand stupid and ignorant people?)

The spades don't like it too much when you call a spade a spade, right to the spade's face.



I can't stand both parties. 'nuff said.

But on this never-ending healthcare debate, isn't it clear who's for the insurance companies and who's against them?

Bravo to Anthony Weiner for getting up and calling the republicans out for being insurance company bitches. I wonder why they objected? Just stating fact. Just like the GOP could stand up and call the democrats a wholly owned subsidiary of the trial lawyers. Again, just stating fact.

Should be good political theatre Thursday. Meanwhile, the US healthcare "system" is a joke.

Fly, winged monkeys, fly!!!


There's a post on realtor circle-jerk site Active Rain today about realtors on commission being superheroes.

'Nuff said.

Fly.

The comments, until they delete them, should be brutal. They need to know. They need to hear just how low their profession has sunk.

(man, I miss HP sometimes)

Glenn Beck 2012.



I like Glenn Beck.

He entertains me.

But I'm twisted. I like watching people trip on the sidewalk. I like the failblog. So yes, in a sick and twisted way, I like Glenn Beck. He entertains me.

He's our P.T. Barnum. He's our Eugene McCarthy. He's our Barry Goldwater. He's our Chuck Barris. He's our Ginsu Knives guy. And he's a genius at what he does. Just like when he was doing AM radio slapstick. He's a genius at what he does.

So, since the GOP is going to implode (again) in 2012, before it splits into two parties, let's go out with a bang.

Beck 2012.


(god help us all. isn't democracy fun?)

Want to understand something interesting? Read this report. Then read this book. And you'll know more about EMP's than you'll want to.


Here's the report.

And here's the book

Boy, I'd sure miss diet cokes. Pizza. The internet. And hot showers. And would've wished I had a sick amount of guns, ammo and canned goods (instead of none).

How 'bout you?



(and isn't it too bad you don't read about stuff like this in the MSM?)




I think I've found the Tea Party's 2012 candidate. Or Sarah Palin's running mate. Epic Beard Man.



Yup, he fits the bill.

He'd be a great write-in candidate in the 2010 races too, if you're looking to throw your vote away.

(you can check out the big fight here)

If you wonder why I'm so anti-Tea Bagger party, here's why. It's not real. It's Dick "Angry Renter" Armey and his corporate masters fooling fools

I got an email once in the housingpanic days from Dick Armey, in the form of "AngryRenter.com". Something about helping drive traffic to his "grass roots" housing bubble website. Of course, it didn't mention that it was Dick Armey (and Fox News, and Steve Forbes).

No, it supposedly was from a little guy, fighting back against corporate interests, starting a little blog.

Ha.

So, of course, I smelled a rat, did some digging, and found out it was just Dick. Being a dick. Pretending to be "grass roots". When it was all about serving his corporate masters, just like he did when he was the Republican majority leader in the House, leading the United States to ruin.

Don't be a dick. Don't be fooled. It's just sooooooooooooooooo obvious. Dick Armey and his "Freedom Works" and "Angry Renter" and "Tea Bag" and "Glenn Beck" and "Fox News" crap is bullshit. And if you support any of it, ANY of it, you are a fool.

I repeat. You are a fool.

[But hey, if you watch Fox News and believe that bullshit, I guess it's already established that you are a fool. Nothing to see here. Move along.]

The 28th, 29th and 30th Amendments to the Constitution of the United States of America

The government of the United States is broken.

The corrupted US Congress, and the disgusting political-hack-stacked Supreme Court can't, and won't, fix it.

So it's time for the people to take it into their own hands, and get it done.

Seriously.

It's time to get it done.

It's time to amend the Constitution.

(a little help with the language from any lawyer-types appreciated)

28th Amendment

Legislation passed by 50% plus one vote of the seated members of each chamber by the House of Representatives and the Senate and then signed by the President shall become law.

29th Amendment

Senators shall serve a maximum term of two six year terms without the ability to be re-elected to the Senate in their lifetimes. Representatives shall serve a maximum of five two year terms without the ability to be re-elected to the House of Representatives in their lifetimes. Supreme Court Justices shall serve a maximum of 10 years without the ability to be re-appointed to the Supreme Court in their lifetimes.

30th Amendment

Only Natural Born Citizens (Individuals) of the United States shall be able to contribute financially to United States political campaigns or political parties or political interest groups or political advertising, or directly to any candidate for any political office in the United States, on any level or by any method, with financial contribution limits and penalties for disregard to be determined regularly by Congress for national political offices and by State legislatures for State political offices.

Both parties are hopeless. Kill them (the parties). Starve them. Don't give them a penny. And vote 'em out. All of 'em.




Man, I hope there's some good choices in 2010 and 2012.

And no, voting for a Republican to replace a Democrat is not a choice.

Independents, if they run, will win.

Period.

I've found the Sarah Palin / Tea Bagger anthem. Sing along everyone. No, check that. Don't. Please. Don't.

Make it stop America.

You're embarrassing yourselves.

Seriously.

Make it stop.





Well sit down and listen, to what I have to say. There soon will come a great war, a bloody but holy day. And after that purging, our people will be free, and sing up in the bright skies, a sun for all to see…….

Times are very tough now for a proud White man to live. And although it may appear that this world has no life to give. well, Times are soon changing, this cant go on for long. And on that joyful summer’s day, we’ll sing our Victory song…..

And the women, they’ll smile, on Victory Day. And the children, they’ll laugh and they’ll sing and they’ll play. And the forests will echo our grace, for the brand new dawn of our Race…

You are my brother and in war we proudly sing. Our Cause shall never tire. Our gift to you we bring: A holy creed of Racial purpose, as a mighty Race to defend. And when we fly our holy flag Their oppressive reign shall end….

And the women, they’ll smile, on Victory Day. And the children, they’ll laugh and they’ll sing and they’ll play. And the forests will echo our grace, for the brand new dawn of our Race…

And when we finally conquer, our people will be free. And all across this great land, the bold Truth we shall see. So as we march together, to avoid catastrophe, let’s remember always our sacred Destiny….

And the women, they’ll smile, on Victory Day. And the children, they’ll laugh and they’ll sing and they’ll play. And the forests will echo our grace, for the brand new dawn of our Race…

Had to come back to say this: Sarah Palin, you are f*cking retarded


Seriously, is anyone still buying her sh*t?

Sucker born every minute if that's the case. As she laughs her way all the way to the bank.

Obama chief of staff’s 'retarded' insult brings fallout, Palin criticism
