Comment Registration Returns!

As some loyal readers have no doubt already noticed, comment registration has returned to The Fix.

What does that mean for Fixistas?

Simply that, before you comment on The Fix, you must sign on to the Post website using your own username and password. Once you do that easy task, you are free to comment away at any and every Fix post.

The return of registration will, hopefully, bring a renewed level of civility to the dialogue on the blog. Registration should weed out the vast majority of spam posters and those simply hoping to distract or detract from the ongoing conversation.

The rest is up to you. Politics evokes much passion and rightly so. But, let's set an example for the rest of the blogosphere here on The Fix that you can disagree without being disagreeable.

Well just like getting off one's *ss to vote - one must put one's money where one's mouth is and use the "Report abuse" button.

I've done it, but my workplace adds a layer of complication that is unnecessary. I'll do more from home.

I suspect only a few corrections need be made to settle things down. Those unable to control themselves are probably used to being banned from one email address and forced to use a second one - and acting more like an adult the second time around.

37th and Oh, Give Me a Break! Talk about whining! The mewling and whipmering that someone expressed a viewpoint contrary to your own (so they MUST have been paid to do it!)... why does this remind me of McCain, pretending to "suspend" his campaign to go off to Washington and save the world. Both ploys, 37th's whining and McCain's pretense, are just attempts to avoid the debate.

After 8 years of Bushism, were I a McCain supporter, I suppose I'd be trying to avoid a real debate, too.

37thandO;
My last post directed at you is bona fide mocking... what you are complaining and whimpering and whining about is called "blog debating" and if you don't like it, don't read it.

And i can assure you, I am not on Obama's staff in any capacity, like so many other Obama supporters, we are an open-source phenomenon, and we take our cues from no one.

I strongly believe this is the dogma of the majority of the members of the CURRENT Republican Party, and WAS NOT when I became a Republican in the 60s.

According to Merriam-Webster’s online dictionary
(http://www.merriam-webster.com/dictionary/bigot), a bigot is “a person obstinately or intolerantly devoted to his or her own opinions and prejudices; especially: one who regards or treats the members of a group (as a racial or ethnic group) with hatred and intolerance.” Note the synonym for bigot is hypocrite.

Just in case, another definition: Webster's Revised Unabridged Dictionary -

Bigot
Big"ot\, n. [F. bigot a bigot or hypocrite, a name once given to the Normans in France. Of unknown origin; possibly akin to Sp. bigote a whisker; hombre de bigote a man of spirit and vigor; cf. It. s-bigottire to terrify, to appall. Wedgwood and others maintain that bigot is from the same source as Beguine, Beghard.]

1. A hypocrite; esp., a superstitious hypocrite. [Obs.]

2. A person who regards his own faith and views in matters of religion as unquestionably right, and any belief or opinion opposed to or differing from them as unreasonable or wicked. In an extended sense, a person who is intolerant of opinions which conflict with his own, as in politics or morals; one obstinately and blindly devoted to his own church, party, belief, or opinion.

To doubt, where bigots had been content to wonder and believe. -- Macaulay.

"Rep. Nancy Boyda (D), a surprise winner in 2006, has taken quite a while to get settled in Congress."

That's a curious perspective, Chris, considering she is LITERALLY (I mean this is not just my opinion, it is a fact) the ideological fulcrum of the entire House of representatives.

Boyda's voting record and ratings puts her at the very center (not one jot or tittle to the right or left) of the 110th Congress.

That is a singular achievement for a freshman Congressperson, one worth noting whenever you mention her, in any capacity.

I would hardly call it "getting settled" Chris, that is both disingenuous and somewhat revelatory of your leanings,(AGAIN.)

So much for non-biased reporting: "The Fix" is in...

AND once again, you put the "O" in "POUNDITS..."

Palin is not Pilate she is satan incarnate, the true anti-christ. She wants to wage a final holy war agains Islam. She is part of the third wave movement. She has ties to Senior Pastor Mike Rose, Juneau Christian Church, Joel’s army, and Army of God, and Eric Rudoph,Lou Engle, Paster Hagee.

She tried to have books banned when she was a council woman.

Sara Palin believes that following the Rapture, those remaining will suffer through the horrors of the Tribulation, reign of the Antichrist, and the wars of Apocalypse until the return of Jesus.

Trig: n. 1. A political prop often used by the republican Christian radical right. The governor used a trig to deflect scrutiny of the Christian theocratic aspirations to raise an army and start the final crusade cleans the world of all other religions.

3. sean hannity: n. 1. The act of inserting ones fist into the rectum into 37thand0street without the benefit of Crisco. Sean hannity has wet dreams of being sean hannitied by Keith Olbermann.

The reason so many posters on THE FIX ARE UPSET is that the Obama campaign has over 300 paid staff bloggers who harass and mock internet bloggers who do not agree with the Obama campaign's ultraliberal views.


It is true.


The Obama campaign, and the candidate and his wife in particular, are hostile toward FREEDOM OF SPEECH OF BLOGGERS because they lump Constitutional Freedoms into a Constitution which they believe is at fault over the Slave Trade, over the Dred Scott Decision, over the Jim Crow era, over all the stuff that you have read in your dusty history book.

This is what we want:


1) We would like the Washington Post to require ALL the internet posters at the Obama campaign, paid and unpaid, including volunteers, to identify themselves in their postings as a part of the Obama Campaign. That way when these people harass and mock other internet bloggers everyone can see clearly that it is the Obama Campaign engaging in such UNAMERICAN AND ANTISOCIAL BEHAVIOR.


2) We would like the Editors and Reporters at the Washington Post to clearly state to the Obama Campaign that harassing and mocking the readers of the Washington Post is unacceptable behavior for a candidate for President of the United State, a position which is suppose to protect FREEDOM OF SPEECH NOT TRAMPLE FREEDOM OF SPEECH.


3) We would like a PUBLIC APOLOGY FROM OBAMA AND HIS WIFE WHO IS RUNNING THIS UNDERHANDED INTERNET CAMPAIGN OF HARASSMENT AND MOCKERY - AND A FIRM COMMITMENT FROM BOTH OBAMA AND HIS WIFE THAT THEY WILL NOT ALLOW THEIR CAMPAIGN OR FAMILY MEMBERS TO ENGAGE IN THIS UNAMERICAN AND ANTISOCIAL BEHAVIOR ANYMORE.

Just hear our President at 9:45 AM.

45 seconds of drivel.

The GOP needs to get its act together on a financial plan - The President and the Treasury Secretary appear to have little support among House Republicans. Does Bush expect the Dems to pass his proposal without GOP support? Not likely.

McCain hasn't decided whether he will side with Bush or the GOP House conservatives.

Time to make a decision McSame....

Chris,
Interesting Line today!
It's funny how the races go back and forth; comparing this Line to the last House set shows how volatile politics can be.
Keep up the interesting commentary!

Thank you for returning comment registration to The Fix. Last week, someone pretended to be me in one of the threads. Now, it's true that dognabbit is merely an online name, but it felt like someone was damaging, misusing, besmirching my "good name."

Now that I've said that, why is everyone else still yelling at each other on this particular thread about comment registration?

As can be seen in the few comments here already, registration/sign-in isn't enough to moderate the comments section. IP-address bans for repeat abusers should be considered.

John McCaint has suddenly gotten quite concerned about the crisis on Wall Street.

Just more lies....

So much so that he has announced he’s suspending his campaign and rushing back to Washington so he can work with Congress on solving the problem and he wants Obama to do the same which will mean putting off that pesky debate they were supposed to have on Friday.

The situation was so urgent in fact that McCaint called up David Letterman personally to cancel his appearance on his show so he wouldn’t waste any time tackling the problem.

Except that he apparently had time to stick around long enough to film an interview with Katie Couric, to "expalin" the pathetic interview with peeeuuu Palin whereas she fumbles and get confused on such a simple subject....and literally self destructs on CBS.....

So while McCaint was at the West 57th street CBS News Location.....at same point in time he would have been on Letterman.

Needless to say, Dave wasn’t impressed. In fact Dave had some pretty good points to make during the course of the show.

David Letterman was absolutely furious at Senator John McCain for snubbing him and instead making an appearance on a CBS News interview with Katie Couric.

According to Letterman, McCaint personally called him and apologized for bailing out at the last minute.

He said he was suspending his campaign to rush to Washington and help fight America’s biggest economic crisis since the great depression.

Letterman understood the urgency of this issue and said it was ok.

Boy, Was he mad when he knew that McCaint did not actually go to Washington to solve the ‘Crisis’ and fix the ‘Crater’ in the economy?

Letterman stopped his interview with Keith Olbermann midway to show a live TV feed of McCaint getting makeup for his interview with Katie Couric.

Letterman said something is terribly wrong with McCain’s campaign ..and it smells....(peeeuuu Palin anyone)and that he was just playing a political game by saying that he was suspending his campaign.

And when Dave saw McCaint with Couric having makeup applied to his cancer ridden head he yelled out and said: "Hey John, do you need a ride to the airport??????.

He felt this a political gimmick to stop his sliding poll numbers from sliding further. He repeatedly asked the same question - ‘Where is your running mate, Sarah Palin?’.

You do not suspend a campaign a month before elections, you get your second in command to run the show instead.

A total of 10 minutes was used up by Dave Letterman to shred McCain and his publicity stunt into pieces.

View David's Anger @
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XjkCrfylq-E

After the Walter Cronkite moment of 1968 now 40 years later for McCaint on David Letterman......I don’t think McCain will be scheduling a follow-up appearance anytime soon.

Thanks Again Dave.... for showing us the truth..yet again......McCaint can't multi-task.....

Its the end of the peeeuuu Palin bubble and McCaints lies.......

"Thanks but no thanks for more of the lies that bridge America to nowhere......"

Watch Couric's interview of a completely clueless Palin for a look at McCain's reckless judgment.

David Axelrod is full of deception and distractions - when he tells the Obama Campaign to lie the first thing they do is start calling the other side a liar to provide cover for Obama's lies.


What a joke of a campaign.


Distract and Deceive David Axelrod we are onto you - you can tell him that papasmoke - so walk over to his desk and tell him that a Presidential campaign should never ever engage in a massive campaign to harass internet bloggers who are exercising their Freedom of Speech with is guaranteed. The President is sworn to protect Freedom of Speech, not trample Freedom of Speech in an attempt to gain office.

Why can't they set up a CREDIT SAFETY NET FOR THE NON-FINANCIAL FORTUNE 500 COMPANIES, MIDSIZE COMPANIES AND THE MAIN STREET COMPANIES ???

Then they can let the Wall Street banks fail and liquidate through the Fed or bankruptcy court.


Then all they need to do is create a mortgage industry like they had before mortgage-backed securities in which all the CROOKS ON WALL STREET GOT INVOLVED AND SKIMMED THEIR MONEY OFF THE TOP.

That is the way to go.


They need to construct a proper system looking at the fundamentals - fundamentally what structures evolved which have to go - fundamentally what is strong which we want to keep - THEN PLACE ALL THE MONEY BEHIND THE FUNDAMENTALLY STRONG STRUCTURES.
