Margaret Chin fit to be 1st Chinese-American Woman on New York City Counsel


In politics, as in life, big things often come in small packages.
Margaret Chin stands 4 feet 11, but the veteran community activist is casting a long shadow over the political landscape in New York.
Chin is poised to win election next month as the first Chinese-American on the New York City Council to represent New York's Chinatown, one of the largest concentrations of Chinese outside of mainland China.
She ousted a two-term incumbent in September's Democratic primary and will be on the ballot November 3 in a district that overwhelmingly favors Democrats.
If elected, she also will be the first Asian-American woman to join the 51-member body responsible for governing the country's largest and most diverse urban area.
Her likely win is another milestone in the political rise of a rapidly growing Asian-American community.

Chin comes from a family history many Asian-Americans can relate to and proves how far along Asian-Americans are coming in the political spectrum. She is one of three potential Asian-American candidates to take positions in New York. This not ony a great thing for New York's Chinatown, but Asian-American women in politics. Chin is described as New-Deal style Democrat and looks to call Mayor Bloomberg out.

"He needs to be a mayor for everyone. I think he's favoring the more well-to-do," she said. "New York City's working families have lots of needs, and he hasn't always been there for them."

Chin seems to have a bright future in New York and in Chinatown.

It's Friday and Halloweeeennnnn mauahahahahaa. Okay I really don't care about Halloween, if you didn't get that yesterday I am sorry, let me repeat. It is not big deal to me. However lots of people like dressing up and being foolish. They like bobbing for apples only to stumble home either with that girl they will never commit to or alone to play XBox and cry at night surrounded by their own self-loathing never to remember they are still wearing a Miley Cyrus wig. Then they wake up the next morning going WTF? Am I a tranny? Oh it's Halloween. That's my take on the whole thing that and it's about the devil and since Martha Stewart says it is not about the devil; it most certainly is.

Here are your highlights:

Net Neutrality and the Curious John McCain

Jason Linkins Huff Post:

As we've previously discussed, Senator John McCain hates him some "net neutrality." And so, he's introducing the "Internet Freedom Act of 2009," that would give telecoms the "freedom" to turn the "internet" into a confounding and baffling ordeal that would suck, into infinity. Net neutrality, which McCain, inventor of the Blackberry, wants to do away with, would keep internet service providers from favoring some content packets over others. To borrow an example elucidated by Boing Boing's Xeni Jardin, net neutrality is what prevents Time Warner, a provider, from slowing or blocking access to MSNBC in favor of CNN.
What would life be like under the "Internet Freedom Act?" Well, one Reddit user created an image that depicts the "worst case scenario." (see above)

When the history books about this decade are written I hope it includes the words "Sen. John McCain war-veteran, Presidential nominee failure and blithering idiot." Why anyone would take advice about the internet from "Tweet like a 12 year old" McCain, beats the hell out of me, but net neutrality is a key legislation that Republicans just like McCain are keen on screwing up.

Now how do I turn on these here YouTubes?

Update: Apparently I know nothing, McCain knows less much less...

Brodsky: "It's almost as if he is trying to send a message rather than write serious legislation." Almost. Exactly whose message that would be is a mystery, though it's probably worth noting that McCain is the single largest recipient of funding from telecom industry interests in either the House or Senate.

Thursday is here, which means two things Flash Forward and then Halloween parties this weekend. I have never been one to embrace Halloween as much as others. Perhaps because my profession lends itself to costuming on the regular. Alas this year the lady and I are debating two possibilities, a certain celebrity couple with eight kids (I am Asian-American, she is White aka the Devil) or a variation of a delicious snack and a play on words. I know gag alert. Costumes and such and couples, but hey it's the price you pay when you want to hang out with friends and together for one night look as stupid as possible.

Here are your highlights:

In a moment of Obama is not Bush...Obama attends the return of the fallen from Afghanistan in Dover. This will probably be spun some way by the Right, let's hope not, but it shows America what a President is supposed to do and acknowledges he knows what his decisions mean for our troops. For all those pushing for escalation this is a gut check

GOP versus the AARP...Further Self Destruction of the Party

Talking Points Memo:

...we reported on the House GOP's plans to target AARP in the health care reform debate. Republican leaders say AARP is supporting changes to the Medicare system included in Democratic health care reform bills because they would result in more sales of AARP-branded insurance. They claim that "backroom deals" between executives of the AARP and Democratic leadership -- deals the GOP say are designed to protect the executives' high salaries -- led to the group's pro-Medicare reform rhetoric.
Yesterday, the message gained traction the right wing commentariat. AARP flatly denies the claims and says it's beginning to feel a little like the GOP's new ACORN.
"Oh, absolutely," an AARP official told TPMDC. "They're using their standard methods to target us."
Yesterday, right wing blogs and publications picked up the story. Michelle Malkin retweeted the House GOP talking points on the topic and Human Events published a story echoing the GOP claims. Malkin and the conservative magazine focused on the corruption message, highlighting the "back-room" dealing.

It should be obvious if the GOP alienates and attacks the Senior vote they lose. End game. They have already done their best to alienate the Hispanic vote with their Lou Dobbs anti-immigation rhetoric, the Asian vote is starting to waver and now Seniors. Who happen to be the last people on Earth who remember when the GOP had actual conservatives and not blood thirsty Wing-Nuts.

Also if you note that is arch nemesis Michelle Malkin leading the ACORN like attacks. KEEP IT UP!! WOOHOO!! AARP is evil, total communist, fascist non-tea bagger 50 plus and over!

Watching this kind of self-destruction is more fun that drinking a case of High Life with the guys from Jackass.

Last night was a chill Drinking Liberally where we exhausted most of our time to the befuddlement of Joe Lieberman and the complicated torture proceedings. It was a candid and quite funny time despite the heavy lifting. All in all we have concluded the beers at Sheffield's are fantastic and we as citizen need to be full of unbridled RAGE!

Hopefully these sick and disgusting students are brought to justice and the young girl can somehow recover from what might be insurmountable amounts of damage

Late Night Music with Owen

My favorite artist, Owen:

New Leaves, like its title suggests, is a new beginning for Mike Kinsella/Owen. It was recorded over the course of two years by multiple engineers such as Tim Iseler (Wilco), Brian Deck (Iron and Wine), Graeme Gibson (Califone), Nate Kinsella, and, yes, some recording at mom’s house.

New Leaves retains elements of earlier Owen material—but here, the arrangements are more elaborate, the song structures more complex, and the lyrics more refined. Instead of lamenting failed relationships, Kinsella focuses on the new beginnings they allow.

Joe Lieberman Worst Kind of Senator Until The Day He Dies

In act of are you effin kidding me, you again Joe? Joe Liebersuck is back and this time he is a full on tea bagger...He is going to filibuster the Health Care Reform Bill! RAAAGGE!!!!!


Several other moderate Democrats expressed skepticism at the proposal as well, but most of the wavering Democratic senators did not go as far as Lieberman Tuesday, saying they were waiting to see the details. Lieberman did say he's "strongly inclined" to vote to proceed to the debate, but that he’ll ultimately vote to block a floor vote on the bill if it isn’t changed first.

"I've told Sen. Reid that if the bill stays as it is now I will vote against cloture,” he said.

WHAT A SACK OF EXCRAMENT!! I wish we could just have a "knock on Lieberman's door" day then we all can just ask him on whether he likes killing American people. How does 45,000 a year dead sound, Joe? Sound good? This guy was let back into caucus for what reason!!?!! JESUS JEBUS ALLAH AND ALL THOSE OTHER PEOPLE WHY?!!!

On the brink of one of the most significant bills in American history some 60 years in the making, Joe "I take cash from the Devil" Lieberman is pithy, selfish and righteious proving he is the face of a pile of douche. He might as well be a dropping from the buttocks of Amy Winehouse. He might as well be the grease on Krisy Alley's back. He might as well be Jon Gosselin's blue tooth and Kate Gosselin's weird swoop hair thing (WHAT IS THAT?!). He might as well be the punchlines to Larry the Cable Guy's jokes. He might as well be the sun tan lotion on John Boehner's bright orange skin.

Lieberman you fucktard.

Okay so this is Politico and I don't think Lieberman actually has the brains to understand the ramifications from the public if he cans this legislation. He won't look noble. Or as a deficit hawk, weird isn't he a WAR HAWK TOO? Right, the saying always went, "he is with us on everything , but the war." The war now should be towards this douchenugget for what he is...a corporate lackey who deserves to be removed from the caucus and spat out to hoard for himself. The wars keep chalking up dollars and dollars on our deficit and our taxpayer dollars now he wants to care...Lieberman you fucktard.

Musicians Angry, Did the US Torture Gitmo Prisoners with Music

Talking Points Memo:

A group of big-name musicians -- including Trent Reznor of Nine Inch Nails, Bonnie Raitt, Rosanne Cash and dozens of others -- is demanding the White House release information about which songs were played at high volume to punish or interrogate prisoners at Guantanamo Bay.According to the Washington Post, the musicians announced today they support a Freedom of Information Act request submitted by the National Security Archive, a research institute.The government has been blasting detainees with music since 2002. But the current administration says they ended the practice when President Obama took office.Human rights groups call the practice torture.

Really? Reznor? I am sorry, but if we are going to torture, let's do it with some actual torturous music. I don't condone torture, but this is the US of A, we have so much crap music the catalog should be endless. Try hitting repeat on these Frank Approved annoying and terrible tunes!

Where the Wild Things "Aren't"

CNN HEADLINE: Parents upset, bored by Where the Wild Things Are

I knew this would happen that some people wouldn't get Spike Jonze's adaptation of "Where the Wild Things Are." It was clear from the moment the movie started being made some undoubtedly wouldn't "get it" or say the movie isn't "kid oriented." Part of the magic behind Jonze's adaptation is the movie explores many haunting fears a child growing up in an imperfect world faces. This isn't your Disney "Where the Wild Things Are." This isn't your bubble gum "Where the Wild Things Are" either. It is however a rather poginant and honest take on a classic. The fun Max has in the book is just the same in the movie which makes quotes like this so confusing.

"I think the book is almost designed for the 1-to-4 age group," said Griffioen, 31. "The text is so simple, and it fits in with the other books that are appropriate for that age level, which is why the movie is so strange because it seemed much more dedicated to the 8-to-12 age group."

The book, as Maurice Sendak has made clear, is not really intended for a 1-4 age group in fact it isn't intended for just one age group that's what made it so endearing. As you grow the book's simplicity lends itself to have an evolved meaning. Clearly Jonze understood that and why he received a blessing from Sendak. All the whining and parents complaints towards the movie fall into two categories from what I can tell.

a) They move through the world with rose colored glasses
b) They are the parents and the family the movie addresses and it hits too close to home

Jason Avant, founder and editor of parent-focused review site

"Family movies and kid movies have become so safe and homogenized and shallow in a sense," Avant said. "['Wild Things' is] such a real depiction of how a kid acts -- the mood swings, the temper tantrums. My son is like that: he's happy as a clam one minute and he's throwing a tantrum the next; everything is so urgent and immediate. It was interesting to watch him watch it, and I think it struck a chord with him in a way that kept him interested."

Max in Jonze's interpretation wants to somehow escape the world he inhabits and by finding the "Wild Things" he discovers the reality is inescapable. It is quite a dynamic story, moving and unique. The criticisms from parents and those of similar ilk miss that completely because they seem to be too busy hoping the book and their life is about something else.

"Inside all of us is a Wild Thing"

Publius makes one of the better points, throughout the health care debate, the conservatives despite all their cash cows and think tanks clearly failed at actual policy. What we have learned from this debate is one side is truly attempting to shape their arguments by policy, legislating and governance and the other is well the knights who say "Ni!"

The Couple from Louisiana

Think Progress:

Last week, Louisiana couple Beth and Terence McKay revealed that justice of the peace Keith Bardwell had recently refused to give them a marriage license because they are an interracial couple. “I don’t do interracial marriages because I don’t want to put children in a situation they didn’t bring on themselves,” Bardwell said. “In my heart, I feel the children will later suffer.” Today on CNN, the McKays responded to Bardwell:

TERENCE McKAY: He says the only reason he doesn’t marry interracial couple is dealing with — because of the offspring of the marriages. If it wasn’t for interracial couples today, we wouldn’t have our president. So, for him to take that outlook, that’s still 1800s or something.

What a busy weekend. The lady and I bowled with some friends where she totally had like 5 strikes (that was me actually) and a couple of spares (nacho chips). It was a good time at the 7/10 near Diversey, check it out if you get a chance, just make sure to keep your eye on your watch as it charges by the HOUR. Then last night we saw WHERE THE WILD THINGS ARE, yup I saw it and will most likely see it again. The movie, as you know, has been tops on my list of movies to see this year and it met all my expectations. It was heartfelt, funny and quite dynamic at times. It was a movie that took the original simplicity of the book and evolved it into a child's struggle to understand his family and life. I wouldn't really say it is a kid's movie, however a movie about childhood. A must see. I would also like to add "Come out!!!""

Louie Gohmert Death Panels Backatcha!

Oh Louie! Louie, Louie, Louie! Man, I know I can always count on you. You guys remember this guy, the one who got all racisty on the Chinese on the House Floor. Welp, now it's back to killing Grandma! And after all that b.s. from the House Republicans about my man Alan Grayson.

Steven Benen:

Now, Gohmert has already proven himself to be ... how do I put this ... a rather dim of lawmaker. About a week ago, during a speech that was supposed to be about "Don't Ask, Don't Tell," Gohmert seriously argued that expanding hate crimes protections would lead to a legalization of necrophilia, pedophilia, and bestiality. He then compared those who disagree with him to Nazis.
But this speech about Democrats wanting to kill off senior citizens is just blisteringly dumb, especially after Republicans just threw a fit about Grayson.
For what it's worth, a spokesperson for the NRCC argued today that Gohmert's remarks weren't that bad, because he was simply "relaying a concern of his constituent to his colleagues."
For goodness sakes. Do you suppose Gohmert was relaying the comments because he disagreed with them? Is he prepared to denounce the absurd concerns of his constituent?

He is also the "What Bill?" ass hat from the President's address on healthcare. The hits keep on coming. I wonder if later he we will here about him calling people socialists on the floor or perhaps terrorist sympathizers, better yet just call Obama "uppity boy" and seal the deal. The sad part is he actual represents the paranoid delusional infantile the Republican party and its ilk have become.

Get Your Dunkin Friday

I am still sick. Damn weather. No it is not swine flu, but even if it was I would ninja kick it in the FACE. Today actually has me excited because it is a magical day, Where the Wild Things Are opens in theaters! For those of you who follow this bloggness I have been hyped for quite some time about this childhood story coming to life. The interviews and reviews have been promising, but the lady and I this weekend will get to see what all the hype has been about. No matter what I honestly will be happy, my childhood imagination will be on the big screen and it won't be shat on by Michael Bay. Oh yeah and there are other things going on today, lot's of things, RAGE things. I am still a man, a gorgeous, 6 foot tall, Asian-American man with a big kid heart.

Here are your highlights:

Health Care and Harry Reid, it's on his shoulder...we are doomed...

For about 6 hrs. or so, we got fooled by a Balloon Boy

In Boxing News: the Super Six Tourney begins this weekend and that is FUGGIN AWESOME, fight picks: Abraham by KO over Taylor and Dirrell by D12 over Froch. This tourney if you haven't been paying attention is for the Supper Middleweight Champion. Like undisputed, no nonsense tourney. It is a great thing for the sport and although I would have liked to see Taylor take on Froch in a rematch first, the match-ups will be great to watch. Let's Get it On!

Interracial Couple Denied Marriage - To Save the Children, WTF?!

This has to be from another planet. This is too weird. Frank sits at his desk. Reads it a couple of more times, then breathes fire of interracial RAAAAAGGE!!! (throws computer out the window only to sit at Fred's desk in the next cubicle. No one likes Fred anyway so Frank uses his computer to tear a new asshole about this ragestastic story)

Huff Post:

A Louisiana justice of the peace said he refused to issue a marriage license to an interracial couple out of concern for any children the couple might have. Keith Bardwell, justice of the peace in Tangipahoa Parish, says it is his experience that most interracial marriages do not last long.
Neither Bardwell nor the couple immediately returned phone calls from The Associated Press. But Bardwell told the Daily Star of Hammond that he was not a racist.
"I do ceremonies for black couples right here in my house," Bardwell said. "My main concern is for the children."
Bardwell said he has discussed the topic with blacks and whites, along with witnessing some interracial marriages. He came to the conclusion that most of black society does not readily accept offspring of such relationships, and neither does white society, he said.
"I don't do interracial marriages because I don't want to put children in a situation they didn't bring on themselves," Bardwell said. "In my heart, I feel the children will later suffer."
If he does an interracial marriage for one couple, he must do the same for all, he said.
"I try to treat everyone equally," he said.
Thirty-year-old Beth Humphrey and 32-year-old Terence McKay, both of Hammond, say they will consult the U.S. Justice Department about filing a discrimination complaint.


This is the most ridonkulous piece of holy crap, if it wasn't for interacial marriage FRANK WOULDN'T BE HERE! Mr. Bardwell must find it so troubling that I am perfectly fine, healthy and a raging mad liberal....reminds me of another interracial child who suffered so much because of his parents decision.

It is 2009! No one should be denied marriage because of the color of their skin. Heck no one should be denied marriage for loving another person. That's what this is all about. The idea that children are the concern, pleaseeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee. This is regular RACIST bullshit. Bardwell needs to sit down with me, my family and all the others just like me and then return to his whitehooded wonderland. If this guy isn't removed from his position then I don't know what to think anymore.

Anyway, I am going to go suffer some more because my parents were married and in doing so ruined my life because I was born into an America full of ignorant racists like Keith Bardwell. *headslamondesk
