Ned Lamonts Victory Speech.

Posted in Main Blog (All Posts), Videos on August 9th, 2006 11:34 am by HL

Ned Lamont beat Joe Lieberman in The Connecticut Democratic Primary yesterday in case you didn’t know. Seems Lieberman is pissed off at those ingrateful proles who did not go along with his blind obedience to Bush, Israel, and The Iraq War. Here is Lamonts Victory Speech.

H.L. Quoted in CBS News Story….

we get letters From Melissa McNamara CBS News Producer, and Writer
Just wanted to let you know I linked to your blog in my column on CBSNews.com today. Thanks!

H.L. Responds Melissa, thanks for using my response to The New York Times Story in your article. Corporatization is to blame for much of the problem with people not able to find decent jobs anymore. Also the Bush Economy which the mainstream media constantly tries to prop up is not nearly as good as the media reports it to be. People are working for less money, with less or no health care, higher energy prices, higher rents, meanwhile corporate profits are at all time highs. I believe this situation will only get worse, being that both Democrats, and Republicans are beholden to their corporate masters, and are only concerned with their corporate donors, and don’t give a damn about their constituents. Joe Lieberman comes to mind. He lost his primary election yesterday mainly because of his pro war stance, and his subservience to Bush, but he refused to budge when the people spoke. He was bought and paid for by corporate interests. Thanks again for the mention.

Here is the the story.

Are There Men In Your Office?

One of the most blogged stories on the New York Times website since it was first published last week is about the rise of voluntary unemployment among men. Men between the ages of 30 and 54 are voluntarily dropping out of work, the New York Times reports, unable to find jobs that interest them. According to the newspaper, about 10 percent of men in this age group—or about 3 million workers—are out of work and not looking for jobs.

And, apparently, some of them are bloggers.

“I am the poster child for this story. I am 44 years old and have not had a steady full time job in 2 1/2 years. Not because I don’t want to work, but because there is no longer the fulltime decent paying, job with medical benefits available anymore,” blogs The Hollywood Liberal, a man in the film industry. “This was never what I wanted.”
bloggers sympathize with the unemployed men. “The men in the article aren’t slothful or complacent; they are teaching at community colleges, volunteering in their communities, learning musical instruments, delving into historical debates on Charlemagne, trying their hand at writing novels. They’re leading full and healthy lives; they’re just not making much money,”


Republican Chaffee Falling Further Behind In Rhode Island.

The Purge of The Republican Party has begun in Connecticut. Next Stop Rhode Island. Final Destination. The White House.

RI-Sen: Chafee falls further behind

Daily Kos
Excerpt
Rasmussen. 8/3. Likely voters. MoE 4.5% (7/11 results)

Chafee (R) 38 (41)
Whitehouse (D) 44 (46)

Laffey (R) 31 (29)
Whitehouse (D) 55 (57)

I’d bet that what we saw in neighboring Connecticut last night will repeat itself in Rhode Island with Laffey taking out the incumbent. Anti-incumbent sentiment is running strong, and those incumbents under 50 percent will be extra vulnerable this year.


Dems rally around Lieberman opponent

Dems rally around Lieberman opponent

AP
Excerpt
Ned Lamont winsHARTFORD, Conn. – Down but not out, Sen.Joe Lieberman filed to run for re-election in November as an independent, saying Wednesday it would be “irresponsible and inconsistent with my principles if I were to just walk off the field.”
But top Democratic leaders threw their support to the anti-war challenger who defeated him on for the nomination, Ned Lamont.
In a statement issued in Washington, two top Senate Democrats said they “fully support” Lamont.
“The perception was that (Lieberman) was too close to George Bush and this was, in many respects, a referendum on the president more than anything else,” said Sens. Harry Reid of Nevada and Chuck Schumer of New York, the party’s leader and the head of its campaign committee.

H.L.s Take:
Most Democrats are only getting behind Lamont because they know now that to not do so means they might be next.


Officials begin vote recount in Mexico

Mexico’s election battle heads back to ballot box

AP
Excerpt
MEXICO CITY (Reuters) – After a month of huge street protests, the battle for power in Mexico goes back to the ballot box on Wednesday with a partial recount of votes in a tight presidential election that has split the country.

The top electoral court ordered all the votes counted again at 9 percent of polling stations in a bid to clear up fraud allegations and calm a political crisis that has shaken Mexico’s young democracy.

Starting on Wednesday morning, judges, election officials and party representatives will spend up to five days checking the tallies at 11,839 voting stations to see if there is truth to the leftist candidate’s claim he was robbed of victory.

H.L.s Take:
If this would have happened in The U.S. The Supreme Court would have just said forget it everyone our boy is in charge now. Everyone would have just said “Oh OK” and gone back to watching American Idol.
