Democrats…

January 13, 2010

Will take their ball and go home if they don’t win this election…

The stakes are so high Democrats won’t rule out taking as long as a month to certify the election results—should Brown win—to prevent a Republican from assuming the seat until the Senate completes its work on Kennedy’s hallmark legislation.

From this article.

Can’t wait to see this one rationalized, the same idiotic and asinine way people are defending Harry Reid’s “Negro” comment. The only defense anyone can offer is “Ya but so and so said this in 2005” as opposed to saying “what an idiot, he should resign”.

Scott Brown NAILED it the other night, this is NOT “The Kennedy Seat”, it NEVER has been, it’s our seat, OUR SEAT!

Don’t think Martha Coakley is more of the same? More of the crap we’ve watched unfold this past year? Really?

Pathetic, truly pathetic. There’s hope, this state can turn it all around by electing Scott Brown who IS for Health Care for everyone, but isn’t for this unpublished, unseen, and completely unaffordable “Government Option” health care plan that this already broke country doesn’t have a dime to spend in attaining. It’s going to CRUSH some companies and will have a huge impact on my company as well.

Let’s see, 38 Studios offers pretty much the gold standard in health care and benefits to its employees right? I mean as a start up how do you prove to your people you’re investing in them? You believe in them and you are committed to them? You either GROSSLY overpay them, which as a non-revenue generating start up is just stupid business, OR, you invest in their health care, you take care of their families right?

As a company that is looking to bring anywhere from 100 to 500 new jobs (at salaries north of 75k a year) into the state it does business in over the next 5 years, how can anyone on this planet say this system the Democrats want to impose on this country is smart? Ethical? Beneficial? There are TRILLIONS of other ways to fund health care rather than penalizing the current system right? How about this bloated, criminal laden Government we are saddled with? Hell in this state alone how many elected officials SHOULD have gone to jail in the past 12 months?

Are we truly NOT fed up with ‘status quo’? Because that’s what we’ve gotten the past 12 months. Well that and “It’s Bushs’ fault” as an excuse to (When does the statute of limitations run out on that btw?)

Massachusetts can change it all in 2 weeks, elect Scott Brown and stop the madness, stop working for the Government and start making these people work for us, again, now.

No one to blame but ourselves, we’ve elected these buffoons, and we’re paying through the nose for it. The Government has done nothing but spend, and grow, at a time when we have no money to spend and absolutely unequivocally NO need for a larger government. If you think it’s going to change, you’re wrong. Unless we elect Scott Brown to become a legitimate check/balance into the system we’re screwed, very screwed.

    What do you mean no one to blame but ourselves? Look in the mirror Curt. You backed George W. Bush twice! He’s the one that inherited a surplus and blew it on a tax cut for the wealthiest people in this country (including yourself). 1 trillion dollars down the drain in Iraq but you are against healthcare that is budget neutral. This country is in dire financial straits and you seem to think it came from the last year of the democrats being in power. Get a clue! Bush spent like a drunken sailor and didn’t give a damn about the deficit. Maybe you are just upset that Coakley has pledged only to raise taxes for the wealthiest 5% of the people in the state and it will affect you. Be honest Curt, you just vote for whoever is the Republican over the Democrat. If you were so close to John McCain you never would have supported Bush after the unforgivable campaign he and Karl Rove ran against him in 2000.

    Right on the money! Liberal politics as usual – delay the confirmation util after the bill nobody wants and nobody has seen gets passed.

    That is of course presuming Brown wins – and we all know that the machine of Boston politics is going to do everything they can to prevent that. The comical negative adds atrying Brown to Limbaugh and Cheney are just the begining.

    And to top it off, the Boston liberal machine continues to pull out all the stops … the Globe claims Coakley leads by as much as 15 points! Hilarious, considering all independent polls have this as a dead heat, some with Brown leading 48-47.

    The media agenda is clear – discourage Brown supporters from showing up to the polls because they know it’s going to go down to the wire … and they’re furious about it! I think Joan Vennochi and the entire Globe editorial staff is beside themselves with despair.

    This is the epicenter of liberalism! How could a moderate conservative Republican get elected to a Senate seat that has become liberal birthright! Outrageous!

    The fact of the matter is – the people of Mass aren’t nearly as liberal, niave as the media would have you believe. They recongize that the “Super Majority” hasn’t been so super and that the policies of the Democratic party aren’t necessarily good for them, the Commonwealth, or the country.

    Schill — No one cares about your company. The fact that you’re paying 100-500 employees salaries over $75,000 for a start-up company is proof enough that you will fail. Isn’t this a company for people who play video games? Simple-minded people like you who pretend they’re 12? And you’re bragging about how much you’re paying employees as if it’s relevant to your argument or even smart business. Curt, go out in your backyard and throw a baseball through a tire. Tell us how to improve our throwing mechanics. Don’t spend so much time worrying about grown-up things like politics or business.

    Typical condescending, liberal adhomenim attacks.

    For the record:

    Bush inherited the Clinton recession – his faux economy burst in March/April 2000 … remember WorldCom, Enron, Arthur Anderson? All fat and rich under Clinton and only brought to account under Bush.

    Bush inherited Osama Bin Laden and 9/11 was the result … I supposed you think that didn’t affect our economy.

    Every taxpayer in America got a reduction under Bush … not just the wealthy.

    No objective analysis considers the current health bill budget neutral … unless by neutral you mean funded by drastic cuts in the military and massive tax increases.

    Curt – anything that insures more people and lessens the power of insurance companies is a good thing in my book. People should not be denied coverage because of a typo. Thanks for the insight, but I am for reform.

    Curt I actually agree with a lot of your criticisms of the Obama administration, the health care bill, the larger democratic agenda, etc. All good points.

    But to believe a Republican is the answer to anything is pure insanity. It won’t “fix” things, it will just change the way in which they are broken. Republicans are exactly as guilty as Democrats to the extent they’ve done “nothing but spend, and grow” as you put it. Each party is concerned solely with consolidating power on its own side.

    To those of us worried about the effects of the health care bill, electing Brown is likely a positive development simply by virtue of the math and political horse racing involved. But let’s not pretend one empty suit is any better than another in terms of individual legislative direction and integrity.

    Dueling athlete pundits:

    Here’s what Kareem (hate the team, not the man) has to say re: Reid:

    “The conservatives are trying to say that those statements by Reid are the equivalent to Trent Lott’s praise for the racist segregationist presidential campaign of Strom Thurmond. There is no rational way that speaking about racial attitudes that have been in play since the beginning of our nation is the equivalent of endorsing a racist presidential candidate. But the conservatives insist it’s a match. Go figure.”

    I’s not a matter of whether or not people are covered. Something needs to be done with the current health insurance system. I don’t think anyone has the right answer, but at least they are trying. Also, I’m not a “Democrat” or a “socialist” but the state health insurance in Massachusetts is great. I switched from that to my current health insurance (what is considered to be a ‘good’ carrier), and I now can’t afford my medical bills.

    Hmm, a multi-millionaire who is opposed to Obama’s health care plan. A multi-millionaire who is advocating for us to vote for a Republican. Somehow none of this seems very original.

    Curt, you should vote for the Republican just as the majority should also vote their best interests and vote for the Democrat. Nothing new here.

    I know this is OT, but on the off chance that you actually read the comments after writing your screeds, Curt, I just wanted to compliment you for not weighing in on the Mark McGwire news. When you consider your own sorry-butt testimony in 2005, when “the stand-up Curt Schilling” took a big time walk out the door, you have no credibility on this issue. I suspect you realize this — thus the silence.

    So, thanks for not wasting our time with your worthless opinion.

    It’s funny that you can’t criticize Obama or the idiots he has working for him without liberals talking about George Bush. Last time I checked, George Bush isn’t the president anymore, and the solution to Bush’s spending spree is NOT to go on a spending spree of your own!

    True, Bush racked up one hell of a bill, but that doesn’t mean Obama should go off and triple what Bush spent! Obama is spending far too much money, this health care bill won’t fix anything, and the stimulus bill was a FAILURE. As of yesterday, Obama was looking for another $75 billion for road construction projects, which were supposed to be the crown jewel of the $800 billion stimulus package. If the stimulus package worked, why do we need this new bill for $75 billion.

    With regard to Reid’s comments, they are absolutely inexcusable. They’re racist, insensitive, offensive, and egregious. The funny thing is that if, say, John McCain or Newt Gingrich said those same comments, he would be burned at the stake by Sharpon, Jackson, and all of the other race pimps who have made their living by presuming to speak for the “Black Community,” a generalization that is racist in and of itself. Are these race pimps really saying that the black community is only tied together by superficial notions of skin color? That the be all and end all of being African American in the US is skin color?

    Imagine if Bill Clinton stood up and said “On behalf of the white community…”! He would be laughed at, because it is idiotic to think that one person can speak for a group of people that are incredibly diverse yet have their skin color in common?

    The Dems have lost touch with reality. I’m going to vote for Scott Brown because I’m not willing to give Obama and Pelosi a rubber stamp to spend all of my tax dollars for something that’s going to bankrupt my as-yet unborn children’s future.

    Curt,

    While I do not doubt your strong convictions that you are right, you need to be REALISTIC (for once). If Brown votes down this health care bill, there will REALISTICALLY not be another one for another 15 years.
    As wealthy Americans, we have much to be thankful for, and we should do what we can to give back. This is what democrats believe in. Republicans should take a lesson on this.
    AND FYI — Statute of limitations on Bush?? YOU ELECTED HIM!! He was in office for eight years? Should there not be a statute of limitations on the amount of time you should be allowed to comment on politics after his reign?!!!
    Stick to what you do best: baseball.

    Umm… More of the same?? You must truly have no clue if you think Obama has failed after one year in office… He inherited Bush’s mistakes, and he saved us from a depression!!! And just an fyi — the unlimited spending has come from Bush. The bailout was essentially a taxpayer loan, that has made (Yes! Made.) money for the taxpayers, because most of it has been paid back already to the Fed with interest. Wouldn’t expect someone like you to actually pay attention to details.. McCain sure didn’t. Neither did Bush.. Wait, a pattern! Well, I guess you must be right about Scott Brown!!

    I see John McCain threw in his phony outrage on the Reid flap and whined about a double standard. NOBODY has benefited more from double standards that McCain.

    McCain was running around with Cindy while he was still married to his first wife. Hardly a peep from the mainstream media. If Obama had been married and taken Michelle as his mistress and later married her his presidential aspirations would have been dead.

    How about Sarah Palin’s debut on the national stage. She brings out her brood of five with the oldest daughter being a high school dropout, unmarried with a belly full of baby. If a BLACK man like Obama had a similar family makeup he would have been crucified. Couldn’t you just hear the outrage from the likes of Rush and Sean Ins-Hannity about the terrible example being set for America’s teens?

    McCain graduated sixth from the bottom in his class at Annapolis which certainly demonstrates his prowess and academic aptitude. I wonder what the “standards” would be for someone else whose father WASN’T an admiral in the US Navy.

    Wow… Sure is easy to quickly discern which comments are written by those on the left, and which by those on the right. And simply by my opening sentence, similarly discerning readers can do the same with this post. Commenters on the right are able to craft coherent, intelligible and insightful replies, while those on the left are satisfied with insults, fist-pounding, BDS-induced tantrums, lame baseball references, and a disturbing lack of capital letters and punctuation (kudos, liberal-run public education!).

    Another wow- the McCain double standards assertion above- just wow! Just how has he “benefitted”? Seems he’s in the same place he was five years ago… some benefit! Now, lets talk benefit- Barack Hussein Obama! (mmm mmm mmm). He DOES have a similar “makeup”. Unwed teen preggers mother, gave birth in Kenya (just ask Barry’s grandmother who was at his birth in a Kenyan hospital), later married, divorced, remarried another non-citizen, moved to islamic Indonesia. Little Barry grows up without a father figure (unless you count the cocaine and marijuana), squeaks into Columbia on a skin-color-quota scholarship, “pals around with terrorists” Weather Underground, “organizes” south side Chi-town for the benefit of the Daley machine, wins a state election by default (without opposition, and without actually campaigning!), speaks at the DNC convention (again, likely another lib quota), and voila! Instant resume! Next stop- the presidency! If he can make there, anyone can, and I dont want to hear about double standards from the left side of the aisle that has benefitted so richly from them.

    The way I figure whoemver wins in Mass. the rest of the country wins. I would hope Brown wins to keep the communist in hig office from getting his way. However, if the troll, Attorney General, wins you losers will continue to be subjected to massive fraud and deceit. Just what in hell do all those east coast taxes you pay do for you?

    Curt,

    I just found your blog and I think it’s great that your an athlete with a head on his shoulders.

    The world of sports needs ALOT more of guys like you. Baseball players have always been the most intelligent, since baseball itself mirrors a live-action chess game.

    football, no. basketball, none, well maybe gilbert arenas. hockey, some.

    Keep up the with your posts and don’t worry about the naysayers who patrol the web, looking to scream bush bush at anyone talking open about their party faults(co*democrats*ugh). Take care man, good luck with Mr. Brown. That win would be fantastic for America and catastrophic for bambams administration.

    Hey Curt,
    It’s too bad that you have called my house 4 times today and your recorded slanderous begging for a republican vote is quite pathetic. I’m not voting for Scott Brown’s opponent, but now I’m questioning even voting. This bull@*&t approach to campaigning that both parties have adopted is a waste of money and breath.
    Maybe you guys should make sure the people you call meet the ignorance criteria of the people who actually vote based on this wind bag style of politics. Doing this could avoid pissing off informed people. Those of us who vote for a candidate based on their job resume and voting history are not interested in who called who a fan of the wrong team.

    I read today that you are “considering moving to RI”. I don’t think that you should move based on the incentives that Massachusetts “gives you” or “doesn’t give you”. You have offices in MA and MD that I am aware of (MD being quite a haven for gaming companies such as 38 Studios, Zynga, Big Huge, etc.). But what Rhode Island is recently offering may be enough reason to at least set up shop and claim a large portion of your income. Last year, CVS offered a specified amount of new jobs and pulled away $14.3 million in tax cuts. Now, if you hire, say 100 people at $35,000-50,000, you’re still potentially saving yourself millions in taxes. It’s worth the move if RI is still offering 4.5% income tax to companies offering new jobs. RI is also the home of Hasbro, dozens of major and minor (but up-and-coming) marketing firms that can boost the potential of what is still considered a somewhat obscure company (not to say that 38 Studios is illegitimate in any way, but you have to consider some of the commentary given by the non-believer). All else fails, look into the Irish market. In the early ’80s they were the one of the three poorest countries in the EU. They cut corporate income tax to 12.5% (lower than any other country in the EU) and now they are third richest and companies have been flocking to Ireland as an easy entry point into the EU ever since.

    So, I may just be a kid with a Curt Schilling autographed baseball on his mantle. But I also have an MBA in Marketing and Global Leadership, grew up in Rhode Island, and live down the street from your Maryland offices (well, more like down the light rail tracks). And you’d be surprised (Curt, as well as the rest of the people saying that nobody cares about your “stupid company”) by what some of the Big Huge and Firaxis people say about 38 Studios around here. And no, it’s not negative as everyone seems to expect.

    The fact is you have a passion. You should make it happen. Keep in office in Massachusetts. When growing up in RI, my friend in New York City once asked me what the best thing about Providence was. My response: “it’s close proximity to Boston”. That’s the way it works around there. If you are in both places, you can simply defer your income to the state with the better tax cuts (not to mention the Providence Planning Department is always looking for new ways to revitalize since Buddy Cianci was put in jail and nobody was there to build “cool new stuff” downtown).

    So go for it.

    And if you’re looking for any clever Red Sox fans down in MD, give me a buzz (writerkeating@yahoo.com).

    Ciao.
    Andrew.
