I'll bet they're in for some good times, too.

Apartment? I think you mean Muslim Brotherhood staging ground.

Wow, how long has Weiner been out of office, and the pigs in the GOP are still this scared of him? At what point does it go past "reporting" and just become full-on stalking?

Not scared of him obsessed with him. IT should come as no surprise that a party full of closeted homosexual men is obsessed with Weiner.

Dude, he's not a politician anymore. He can do whatever the f*ck he likes

According to the article, the made a million selling their 2 homes and are now renting at around $10,000 a month, that doesn't exactly sound impossible with that size bank account.

So vote Republican, because Romney has come out in favor of massively curtailing donations to politicians as part of his platform.

Hey, New York Post, just start calling him Mayor Weiner now and get used to that in your mouth.
 
2012-08-13 01:01:28 PM
F*cks to give? Sorry, I'm fresh out.

Subby,

I'm with you. I cannot tell you how sincerely poutraged I am that a private citizen is spending his money on another private citizen. I'm seriously shaking in super duper madness right now and I assure you, this is indeed as bad as we both think it is. How do you feel we should proceed? I'm thinking constitutional bans on how rich people spend their money.

Hugs,
~Lenny

Oh I wish I were a New York Mayor Weiner... that is what I'd truly like to be... cuz if I were a New York Mayor Weiner... everyone would be in love with me.

Haha! This coming from a site where Sarah Palin is still the debil and every thread with her name in the headline receives hundreds of posts.

She's still actively participating in the political scene, even if she is a private citizen. Weiner is just... not doing anything that I'm aware of, besides being a creepy looking little guy with a hot wife and a pentient for sending pictures of his penis to people.

FTA: landed in the sprawling, 12th-floor Park Avenue trophy residence owned by Rosen Partners LLC, which is headed by close Clinton pal Jack Rosen, records show. Rosen - who oversees the American Jewish Congress - is an influential international political force.


Apparently Weiner continues to do G-d's Work for Zion, even though he's out of congress.

If he hadn't been working in the interests of the obscenely wealthy when he was in office, they wouldn't be paying him off for it now.

Weiner and his muslin wife must be destroyed, utterly. And his home burned to the ground. Murdoch demands it!

Is your fark handle a reference to being a hairy homosexual liar with multiple sclerosis?

Anyway, by your logic, shouldn't they kick him to the curb, as he's useless now?

Just asking questions here...

I thought the Democrats forced Flashy McWeiner out of office? Is he still an elected official and I missed it? Or, is the GOP now looking to over-regulate what rich people do with their money in the private market?
 
2012-08-13 04:09:35 PM
This.... is an... outrage?

Why would politicians remain for sale if they never get paid off once they are out of office?

Bill Clinton led the fight to kill Glass Steagall

dl.dropbox.com

He also led the fight to pass NAFTA and grant China most favored nation trading status so the obscenely wealthy could start moving US manufacturing jobs to places that paid slave labor wages and ignored environmental regulations without any sort of financial penalty.

He also fought to prevent the regulation of the Derivatives market which was largely responsible for our current financial crisis.

All these actions are much beloved by the obscenely wealthy. They all helped accelerate the rate at which the rich got richer at the expense of everyone else.

Unsurprisingly, once Clinton left office, he suddenly developed a net worth of 80 million dollars. Serving the interests of the obscenely wealthy is quite profitable for politicians.

Over the course of the next ten years after his Presidency, Clinton brought in roughly $8-10 million a year in speaking fees. In 2004, Clinton got $250,000 from Citigroup and $150,000 from Deutsche Bank. Goldman paid him $300,000 for two speeches, one in Paris. As the bubble peaked, in 2006, Clinton got $150,000 paydays each from Citigroup (twice), Lehman Brothers, the Mortgage Bankers Association, and the National Association of Realtors. In 2007, it was Goldman again, twice, Lehman, Citigroup, and Merrill Lynch.

This is why I laugh at the current state of American "democracy".

"Democrat vs Republican, Liberal vs Conservative? LOL!

There are only two parties: The rulers, and the ruled. Everything else is nothing but sideshows to distract and divide the rabble.
 
2012-08-13 06:57:58 PM
Ya, those two parties are identical. the only solution is to spend 90% of our time biatching about the lesser of the two evils and then casting a write-in vote for someone not in the race. that'll enact the changes you want!
