  1. The Lesser Rusty says:

    Salinas Joe wants access to the studio to bray his beliefs on abortion.

    Booooo. I don’t care to hear his gibberish. Go bang on the door of Kay-Sucko up the coast.

    And MLK Jr. would be a moderate Republican against abortion. Of course and so what? He would still be for equality, against poverty and wanton war.

    Damn good stands, and way better then any Republican who hasn’t been kicked out of the party.

  2. The Lesser Rusty says:

    Like a Steinbeckian moron catapulted from old literature to our time, loose amongst the lettuce fields of our day with cellphone in hand… Salinas Joe calls yet again to inform us about the depth and breadth of his low-grade connection to reality…

    Hey Joe! Reagan double the Social Security tax on the middle class, INCREASED taxes on earners under 50K, while cutting the the top tax-rate from 70% to 50%.

    And his crazy deficit spending TRIPLED the national debt. It went from 1 trillion to 3 trillion. Who couldn’t have a short-term boom with such economic realities.

    Good day to you sir!

    • Davee says:

      Rusty, Reagan signed a bill ,, but it is the congress that put it on his table. There were plenty of democrates that voted to raise worker’s taxes. This is exactly the problem with demo/rep hamster wheel politics.
      Demos like Lieberman prove the duplicity of the system.
      It’s one frigg’in party, friend.

  3. The Lesser Rusty says:

    Sean Hannity – The face of Evil Banality – claims State had realtime video because his tennis-ball sized brain remembers President Cheney watched 9-11 unfold in realtime on video screens in the White House bunker.

  4. The Lesser Rusty says:

    Harry Reid may have made a good deal on filibuster rules, but I bet it’s going to suck in the long run. Mostly because Republicans lie and are untrustworthy.

    But Reid may have done the Green Party a big favor, as so many of us want to belong to a political party that has integrity and a spine. Thanks for having the Greens on KRXA, Mr. Hal!
