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...
