Republicans Hit a New Low Mar10

Republicans Hit a New Low...

While Obama is pursuing diplomacy to keep the US from going to war with nuclear capable Iran, 47 Republican senators, in an unprecedented low sent a letter out the back door of Washington informing Iran’s leaders (the same ones Obama is negotiating non-military intervention with) that the president doesn’t speak for them with a reminder that he will only be in power until 2017. Never before in US history has this level of undermining a political authority taken place. Like everything Republicans do, their actions in no way represent the best interests of any part of the American public. This letter is a political stunt … aka Joe Wilson style political posturing where ‘defiance’ is embraced by the radical right as an act of patriotism. It is a means of advancing a political career, so the people who pay them money to make sure they stay rich will continue to do so … even at the expense of leading the country into another war that we cant afford, for no good reason with a place that has the potential of killing hundreds of millions of Americans. Despite radical disagreement between past political parties … partisanship always stopped at the boarder. Even when Bush (Rove) invaded Iraq on false pretenses to make his campaign contributors rich and secure the boarders of the oil pipelines into the gulf … the in-fighting stayed in the US. As the military fought their best fight, the disagreements revolved around exit strategy and cleaning up the mess to maintain a positive global perception. Had democrats penned letters to foreign leaders saying the presidents actions didn’t represent their own with the implication that as soon as Bush was out of office they were going to rescind all support … it would have been a global embarrassment and completely undermined the integrity...

Still Bitching that Obama Won ..? Nov10

Still Bitching that Obama Won ..?...

5 reasons your dumb fucking bumper sticker asking me if I am sorry for voting for Barak Obama makes me think you’re a stupid asshole … 1. I dont regret not wanting to give the keys to the worlds largest nuclear arsenal to someone who believes in ‘creationism’. And its not the fairy tale that offends me … its the lack of rational thought in decision making (or the willingness to lie about it for personal gain). Choosing to believe in something that isn’t true because a person wants to or because it fits a social narrative is dangerous and endorsing that behavior is against my natural instinct to stay alive. 2. Because agree with everything Obama does or not, it requires a kooky conspiracy theory to take the position that his intentions are insincere. Birthers, Death Panels, Gun-Bans, Bengazi, Obama-phones, Solyndra. 3. Because I believe the first amendment is first by design and its Republicans who by vast majority are historically responsible for working to revoke what is unarguably our most important right. More disturbing is motive, which unlike reducing homicides or giving poor kids medicine, almost always revolves around personal gain and corporate interests. 4. Because basic math says it is not in the lower, middle or even middle-upper classes best economic interest to vote republican. Common sense aside, history has proven trickle economic theory is a scam. And I dont have my head in my ass while pretending that the current system isn’t rigged to give the wealthy an economic advantages. 5. Because political orientation shouldn’t be dictated by someones ego.  Elections are not sporting events and loyalty to a home team should have nothing to do with how someone vote. *Bonus Reason: The narcissistic, self-righteous, desperate to tell everyone you’re right...

Blame the Poor Sep15

Blame the Poor

So my inbox is full of activist alerts that Republicans are in the process of ‘gutting’ welfare. From what I understand that cuts are only going to apply to able-bodied recipients with no kids. A few thoughts on this … First, anyone capable of using a calculator should be able to figure out this isn’t the ‘problem’ with our budget. Welfare constitutes a small fraction of government spending and the effort being expended cutting a small portion of this program will fix nothing. If anything the expected results would be A. more unwanted kids for qualification and B. higher incarceration rates. Regardless … saving money was never the point. To qualify my position … I dont care about the well-being of people. Contrary to pro-welfare stereotypes, I just dont sympathize with the poor not eating nor do I make political decisions based on it. We are over-populated and until people are willing to embrace Eugenic policies the problem needs to fix itself somehow. My position is admitted callous but honest. For this reason I am not opposed to cutting welfare under the above circumstances. There is truth to the fact that its ease of availability does discourage many from becoming self-sufficient. The system itself provides little incentive to not use it when considering benefits vs minimum wage. Republicans however seem to be campaigning on the myth that its the poor people, and poor people alone who are draining the middle class. Not the billions in corporate welfare, the predatory nature of american business, the unnecessary wars the american public was lied into, excessive military spending, mis-allocated government contracts, or Wall Street Bank bailouts …  but the poor people who buy candy bars with foodstamps. Its a brilliant plan because poor people are easy targets....

GOP moves to eradicate 1st Amendment – nobody gets mad?...

http://www.newsmax.com/US/north-carolina-gop-religion/2013/04/03/id/497609 Republican politicians who fight proposals that would require the registration of lethal weapons, prohibit firearms at public schools and restrict public access to ‘military grade weaponry’ (as defined by Stanley McChrystal, leader of the US Military) on the basis of constitutionality and protection against tyrannical government … propose legislation to make N Carolina a Christian state (aka Theocracy). “Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion” – Amendment 1 Looking fwd to seeing the constitutionalists at Fox News, the NRA, and all the other fringe groups like the Oathkeepers who have feverishly rallied against the proponents of gun legislation (at least the ones with ‘D’ in front of their title) demonstrate their integrity by exerting the equal amount of effort in protesting the NC GOP for the preservation of the 1st amendment. Because it has nothing to do selling more guns or a black man being president.   Donate to the FFRF...
