Mitt Romney is a Lying Stupid Bobble-Head White Rich Man, But You Already Know That

You can fool some of the people all of the time, and those are the ones to concentrate on.  ~ George W. Bush

I am not a leech.  Rat Romney thinks that I, we are leeches, chase government money to live on, are lazy, love our country only for the money it gives me and am not a responsible human being.  True I am in good company, military veterans, students, seniors, the disabled, the working poor, women, pay no income tax and all those other leeches.  Wait a minute.  Was he really talking about the middle class, the 47% or was he secretly speaking about himself.  After all, he pays no income tax.  I at least work hard for my paycheck, I take all the deductions that the Republicans gave me so I could pay less income tax so I could have more money to pay bills and redistribute funds to small businesses when I make a purchase.  That secret video shows that stupid people will listen intently only to even more stupid people.  Stupid people who lie.  Think about it.  It was a fundraiser…. please.  He doesn’t need the money to pay for his campaign to oblivion.  He can just write a check and move on.  This is only to try to convince other stupid rich people that he is just as stupid as they, just richer.  These are people who are going to pay higher taxes to help the poor and middle-class.  How dare they pay more.  He will cater to their basest political desires.  He is a racist – like his party.  Joan Walsh said it best:  “Mitt Romney should be ashamed of himself, and so should anyone who votes for him.”

I am a Democrat and proud of it, but I vote for people not parties.  There used to be good republicans once upon a time, Lincoln, Roosevelt, Dirksen, Ford and McCain.  Yes McCain.  I would have voted for McCain if the real McCain was running.  He started out the maverick, saying what he though and what he believed.  You knew where he stood and he held his ground.  He may not have always been right, but you knew who we was, what he believed and what his vision and hope was for America. Then he went off the cliff doing what the party wanted and there he lost my vote.  He was no longer a real man.  He showed up again when he conceded in 2008.  That McCain I would have voted for.  Call me crazy, but I would have.  Romney believes in nothing.  He can’t articulate what his vision is for America, what his plan for the economy is, how he plans to make the country better and stronger, how he will represent all of us.  He has no clue.  That was made clear and bright in the secret video.  He proved that he is not presidential material.

I had hope for Romney.  I would not vote for him, but I was willing to listen to his ideas, plans, hope and fears for our country and have those open to discussion.  I felt that we could have an open view of two different visions, if in fact they are different.  I had that hope.  What that video tape revealed is that Romney has written off the government check recipientsthat won’t vote for him, and almost half the people don’t pay taxes and undoubtedly won’t vote for him.  That is a hell of a lot people that won’t vote for him.  He announced that is has lost the election.  He told it to his supporters and the party.  It must be hard for him to get up in the morning.

I recently wrote of an imagined rural Ohio woman sitting on her porch, watching the campaign go by. She’s 60, she identifies as conservative, she likes guns, she thinks the culture has gone crazy. She doesn’t like Obama. Romney looks OK. She’s worried about the national debt and what it will mean to her children. But she’s having a hard time, things are tight for her right now, she’s on partial disability, and her husband is a vet and he gets help, and her mother receives Social Security.

She’s worked hard and paid into the system for years. Her husband fought for his country.

And she’s watching this whole election and thinking.You can win her vote if you give her faith in your fairness and wisdom. But not if you label her and dismiss her. ~ Peggy Noonan ~ Time for Intervention http://blogs.wsj.com/peggynoonan/2012/09/18/time-for-an-intervention/

Romney has no understanding of what life is and means to ordinary people.  He can’t associate with hardworking people, because he never had to work a day in his life.  He has dismissed millions and millions of people.  He has no conception of who they are, what they do to get by each and every day.  We don’t have stock that we can chip at to pay the rent and buy food as he did.  We have to work hard every day to make life better for ourselves and our families.  He just doesn’t know much or anything about America.  We are people with hopes and aspirations.  We are not just democrats and republicans, we have feelings, souls, ideas for our families and our country.  This is about America and the American people.  He doesn’t yet understand that.

Still, before the secret video, I was willing to listen.  I wanted to see if he could prove that he was qualified to be president.  I wanted to see his character.  How he would handle difficult situations.  I wanted to imagine him as president.  Then the Mideast exploded.  Here was his chance to be presidential.  Blue background and American flags.  When he stepped out to the podium on September 11,  we got cruel opportunism.  His smugness showed all over his face.  He was not presidential.  He condemned the U.S. Embassy in Cairo and accused the U.S. Government of sympathizing with terrorists.  The next morning he had a chance to make it right.  Instead, he intensified it: “When our grounds are being attacked and being breached, the first response should be outrage.” “Apology for America’s values will never be the right course. We express immediately when we feel that the President and his administration have done something which is inconsistent with the principles of America.”  He had a chance to make it right.  Instead while the U.S. Consulate in Libya was being attacked, while Libyans were defending Americans, While Americans and their defenders were being killed; he denounces and condemns these and Americans and their defenders.  With each word he spoke there was a dead body to accompany those words.  It was an opportunity, a chance for Romney to prove his quality. His character.  We now know he has neither.  He proved that he is hateful and self-destructive.  He showed his racism in this press conference and in the secret video.  Nothing he can say or do now will change that.

When I look at Romney now I see and hear Richard Nixon: “I am not a crook.”

Wake Up People. Vote Republican and This Is What You Get

 

Legitimate Rape.  These are the men that make all these new laws concerning women’s health.  Families first, family values, Christian Right, God-fearing, compassionate conservatives passing legislation to control women’s bodies.  What do they know about anything.  This is a return to barefoot, stay in the kitchen pregnant women of the old days.  White haired old men making choices for women.  Just so they can be victimized again and again.  I have said it before in an earlier post, what state governments are doing to women is “governmental rape.”  What they can’t do with their little pods, they do with the law.  We should know by now that the louder they are, the smaller they are.  It’s pride for them, they have to prove they have a big dick.  They used to have a big dick, his name was Nixon, who f@cked everyone.  I must stop.  I had a flashback of 1972, summer and joints, and smoke and the big dick.  I digress or recess.

Nixon proudly said:  “I am not a crook.”  Ryan proudly states stance on abortion that it should be illegal even in the case of rape and incest.  Now with this comment from Akin, it seems that they both seem to think that if a women gets raped, is ovulating she can stop the egg from being fertilized.  Amazing.  Back to the place where women and blacks had their place.  Republicans are smashing the life out of women voters including conservative women.  They will find themselves in the voting both marking for Obama and they should.  All women should be thinking about their daughters  and friends daughters.  Look into your children’s eyes and see the future that lies ahead from the republicans.  Ryan as he had done today and the past few days will lie and stand up for abortion rights.  He’s doing that now with Medicare.  “My mother relies on Medicare……”.  Which of course is ludicrous.

Of course we could all move to Massachusetts.

 


“Truth is Treason”

In a free society we’re supposed to know the truth,” Paul said. “In a society where truth becomes treason, then we’re in big trouble. And now, people who are revealing the truth are getting into trouble for it.”

Now I know this quote is a couple of years old, and about Wiki leaks, but somehow it applies here as it concerns The Rat and The Roach[okay,[Romney and Ryan].  They have sent the Stooge out again.  Just look at what they have her saying now after VP Joe Biden’s truthful comments.  You could say they were a little strong, but they were the truth.  There is just no use kidding ourselves what Rat/Roach really wants for America.  When he stands and looks out at his supporters and the real American public he sees not working America, he sees criminals that need to be punished with more taxes and poverty.  He sees dangerous parasites and leeches preparing to strike at the heart and soul of the Great American System that put them where they are now.   More about this later, now back to the Stooge, aka Andrea “Stooge”Saul.
What was so terrible about what Vice President Biden said:
They’ve said it.  Every Republican’s voted for it.  Look at what they they value and look at their budget and what they’re proposing.  Romney wants to let the — he said in the first 100 days, he’s going to let the big banks once again write their own rules — unchain Wall Street,” Biden said.  “They’re going to put y’all back in chains. He’s said he going to do nothing about stopping the practice of outsourcing.”
Republicans have spoken for these 2 years and more to the need to “unshackle” the private sector from regulations.  Mind you the private sector, meaning the citizens, working class families, women, blacks, illegal immigrants, immigrants, and poor people remain shackled to high taxes, joblessness, and poverty.
Their record speaks for itself:  the war on women, voter suppression, personhood bills, heartbeat bills and you see the compulsion to return women, blacks and immigrants to lives of slavery, chained and shackled to the whims of white rich men.
And the Stooge response:
After weeks of slanderous and baseless accusations leveled against Gov. Romney, the Obama campaign has reached a new low, the Stooge said. The commends made by the vice president of the United States are not acceptable in our political discourse and demonstrate yet again that the Obama campaign will say and do anything to win this election.
When Obama backed Biden the Stooge said:
In case anyone was wondering just how low President Obama could go in his campaign for reelection, we now know he’s willing to say that Governor wants to put people back in chains, Whether it’s accusing Mitt Romney of being a felon, having been responsible for a woman’s tragic death or now wanting to put people in chains, there’s no question that because of the president’s failed record he’s been reduced to a desperate campaign based on division and demonization.
Felon?  The Rat did that to himself.  Won’t release tax returns, so he must be hiding something he doesn’t want anyone to know.  Responsible for a woman’s tragic death?  I didn’t hear that.  It said no health insurance to help his wife during this illness.  He lost his job thanks to the Rat.  She, herself said:
“If people had been in Massachusetts, under Governor Romney’s health care plan, they would have had health care,” said Saul
All the Rat/Roach campaign can do is lie.  If they were even remotely to consider telling the truth it would be treason.  Truth is something that the Republican party has no interest in. They are incapable of doing so.    Hubris.  Narcissism.
I for one am so tired of their self-serving, self-indulgent, selfish and self-righteous outrage and lies.  They have no comprehension of what the truth is.  The Rat just lies.  It is what the Rat does every day of his life, on purpose, as a matter of policy, and a perfect expression of everything he stands for.

“I Need You to Vote for Romney and Save America”

I was attending church a week ago and a “friend” called me over and said “I need for you to vote for Romney and save America.”  Now mind you this man knows I am a Democrat, usually vote that way, and think for myself regardless of who I vote for.  Still, I was surprised.  First, I thought it was a joke, but I could see by the look on his face he was quite serious.  Still, believing this was still a joke, my response was: “Vote for Romney……..George Romney.  No wait, he’s dead. Oh what is it I don’t know.”  He did not see the humor in it.

Like four years ago, Republicans in Ohio are  becoming desperate.  I mean desperate.  They have sold their souls to the republican party and RNC.  They are whores for whores.  Like lemmings they recite the loyalty oath to the party and sing the praises of Willard the Rat.  Mittens is the rat.  He has been trained by the republican party to kill the party.  I know it was on its last leg after McCain, but now it is barely breathing.  It is stunning.  The more I see, the more my heart is filled with happiness.

Think of it as road to salvation.  It is how it was presented to me after all in church, God etc.  What better place to plead and pray for Rat votes.  They were telling me that if I donate just $5.00 to “The Rat”  I could begin to pay my way to salvation.  The Rat’s own website states it:  Learn The Truth:  Sign up to receive emails with the truth.  Imagine it, straight from God himself….the truth.  Donate $5.00 and you get more.  Only the more is a surprise.  Even the baby rats the run big Rats’ show don’t know.  Since the Rats all lie it can only be true that this is a lie too.

To prove his faith and hope of salvation, the Rat put out this campaign :

It was never meant to be used as a political platform, but here he is touting how he saved the 2002 Olympics and Salt Lake City, the bastion of Mormonism.  The Rat tells lies, lies and more lies.  What is past comprehending is why people believe him.  It must be the thought of salvation that is too great to resist.  Get your ticket to ride everybody.

I think this is really what he is saying.

Guns, Guns and The Cowards In Congress


Racism In Pursuit of Victory

 

I would remind you that extremism in the defense of liberty is no vice. 

Barry Goldwater, 1964 Republican National Convention at San Francisco, California

Immediately following making that statement in his acceptance speech, he was dismissed as a racist by the entire country.  He lost the election in dramatic fashion .  His own party branded him not only a racist, but a destroyer of the party.  That all changed in that year and in 1965.  He was no longer a racist, but was becoming a hero.

This same party has taken that creed and built up on it.  Goldwater and Nixon are now perceived as moderates now, compared to Reagan, Bush I and Bush II.  They learned their lessons well.  The Republican party has become a party of  usurpers and destroyers.

It was done simple by a stroke of a pen in 1964 and 1965.  It was the beginning of their destruction  and evil.  The Civil Rights Act of 1964 and the Voting Rights Act of 1965 gave Republicans the “Solid South”.  It once again opened the door to hatred and racism on a scale not seen since the Civil War.  The South was ready and able.  They were outraged that their rights to lynch and call blacks “niggers” was being infringed upon.  The Republicans played their race card, and what was once a Democratic stronghold now turned and became Republicans.

We call it now the “Southern Strategy”.  That phrase is an old Nixon line used by his political  strategist Kevin Phillips. In an interview in a 1970 New York Times article, he touched on its essence:

From now on, the Republicans are never going to get more than 10 to 20 percent of the Negro vote and they don’t need anymore than that… but Republicans would be shortsighted if they weakened enforcement of the Voting Rights Act.  The more Negroes who register as Democrats in the South, the sooner the Negrophobe whites will quit the Democrats and become Republicans. That’s where the votes are.  Without the prodding from the blacks, the whites will backslide into their old comfortable arrangement with the local Democrats.

They sought to polarize ethnic voting in general, and not just to win the white South, but the South was by far the biggest prize.  The Republican party pandered to the Bible Belt, every Sunday go to meeting whites and told them we feel your pain.  The good Baptists of the South joined the new religion.  Republicans candidates began expressing support for states’ rights, a code of opposition to federal enforcement of civil rights for blacks and intervention on their behalf.  This strategy worked for Nixon in 1968 and for Reagan in 1980.

President Lyndon B. Johnson said it best in 1965:

I am signing away the south for 50 years.

It proved to be accurate.  The Democrats have never recovered the vote of the white racists in the South.

This should all sound new and to some familiar.  We have all watched the Republicans since the 2010 election.  Correction since the 2008 election.  They have perfected this strategy and the states with Republican power now, have moved forward the agenda.  Only this time the Republicans include everyone.  Many people in America have been wearing blinders so as not see that it is repeating itself.  It was clear not long President Obama’s election.  The famous line by Senator Mitch McConnell said it all:

The single most important thing we want to achieve is for President Obama to be a one-term president.

This was and is the priority of the Republican party for 2008-2010 and now 2012.  They have deliberately not legislated.   They have made no  to effort to work on the people’s business. Appropriation bills not passed.   Racism is the religion.  The so-called  Religious Right no longer has any influence.  Their mission is solely  to return blacks and Hispanics  to their slave status, take the voting rights away and to return women to their place of sexual objects.  If you are not white and a man, you will be thrown out.  You have no control over your person and all your rights rescinded.    It is patriotic to be white.  Be proud to be white and American.  That is their message.

They also hope that we will forget.  That we won’t remember the war on women, making voter id laws, heartbeat bills, Governor Vagina and  Dr. Cooch.  They hope that we will be more interested in the Olympics and gold medals to remember how they have violated all of us.  They realize that the only way for Willard “The Rat” Romney to have any chance, is to not allow the majority of voters the right to vote.

There is an email floating around, at least here in Ohio, with parts of a transcript from Michael Richards defense speech in court after making racial comments in his comedy act.

There are African-Americans, Mexican Americans, Asian Americans, Arab Americans etc.  And then there are just Americans.

It is being sent out by Republicans with the last line reading:

Be Proud to Be White and American!

So now if you are African-American, Greek American, Irish American, Jewish American, German American, Italian American, etc. you aren’t white and you are not American.  Imagine it, you are born in America, your heritage is Greek or Irish etc., but you are not American and certainly not white.  Therefore, you have no right to vote.  Enough is enough.

It is time to remember, it is time, especially women, to rise up and show them who has power in this country.  It is time to show so-called white men who has control over their bodies and their country.  Take it back.  Fight.

I am as mad as hell, and I am not going to take it anymore.

Wayne La Pierre Breaks N.R.A. Silence

In are  response to comments and urging of a number of Republicans Senators and Representatives Wayne La Pierre, leader of the N.A.R. has issued the following statement:

The Second Amendment is the center piece of freedom and American values.  We are the longest standing Civil Rights organization in the United States.  We fight for your freedom.  If you must fight, don’t lose.  Good guys carrying guns can and do make a difference.  The best way to stop a bad guy with a gun is a good guy with a gun.  You can’t tell the difference between the lions and the lambs.  I am defending and protecting your right to purchase the largest clip and rounds of bullets that are presently available.  Therefore, today I am announcing that we, the N.R.A. will begin a new membership drive in all states, and readily available to all.  We soon will be setting up N.R.A. kiosks outside all movie theaters, and stadiums to add new members and educate the people to the importance of high capacity magazines and assault rifles.  We want them to discover that like Wyatt Earp, they too can enjoy their version of the gunfight at the OK Corral, Batman movie or any other venue they choose.  Stadiums are even better since attendance there is huge.  We want as many bodies riddled with bullets as possible.

He then went on to reiterate his comments from May, 2012, as reported by The Onion, http://www.theonion.com/articles/nra-sets-1000-killed-in-school-shooting-as-amount,28352/?ref=auto.  As they apply to “soft-targets etc.  I was impressed with his passion for higher body counts.  He continued:

Government policies are killing us.  In response, along with my previous statement, we are planning to be the “bookmobile: for assault weapons and ammunition, as much as you want.  There are those who say the I have the charisma of an unflushed toilet.  I do not fear them.  Our future is bright and bloody.  I will not stop protecting our civil rights and freedom.

This will only end when they take my assault rifle from my blood drenched, dripping hand.

 


It Is About the Guns

Assault weapons ban does not violate the Second Amendment.  There is no prior claim that laws preventing citizens from buying weapons that fire 30 or more bullets without reloading violates the Second Amendment.  Even the most conservative judges hold that the Second Amendment was meant to protect state militias and not individual gun owners.  Banning any possession of handguns by citizens , even in the home, is the only law so far the Supreme Court has held that violates the Second Amendment.

The Right will tell you that “hunting rifles” those assault weapons, are for their personal protection.  That it is about defending themselves against the government. They consider the government more and more a threat each and everyday.   Would the Supreme Court uphold that the Second Amendments protects citizens owning plutonium, to defend themselves against nuclear attack?  Weapons are weapons.  Defending ourselves from tyranny is the justification.  Protecting ourselves, the great American value, but so was slavery.  Their argument is ludicrous.

American public has been conditioned to belief that their communities and country are more dangerous than they really are by their local news, television and other media.  Hate, violence and intolerance do well on television.  We are all watching television and being pumped full of fear.  Mostly against blacks and Latinos.  It is always the lead part of the story, ” a black man with a gun” or “a black or Latino man with a gun”.  Never, a white man with a gun.  Conditioned to fear blacks and Latinos.  The Black and Latino communities have become entertainment for the rest of society. Their response is guns and more guns.  Guns that can fire more bullets than can be imagined.  I must protect myself.  If more guns make you safer, then American would be the safest place in the world.

The simple truth is that no one wants to ban all guns.  But is it really so unreasonable to ask that it be made more difficult for individuals to buy assault weapons and hundreds of rounds of ammunition?  They even call themselves Christians.  The Sixth Commandment says “Thou shalt not kill” period.  It does not say thou shalt not kill unless I am “protecting” myself.  Just thou shalt not kill.  They call it personal protection.   The argument is stupid.  They want you to believe that Stalin lives in American if gun control was enacted.  Their fear is purposeful.  It gives them the right to kill at will.  They call it “ patriotism“.  They need to do better.

We all need to do better.  We must come together and find a way to actually protect our country, our citizens and ourselves without resorting to Constitutional murder.

I don’t pretend to know the answer.  I only know that to stop good citizens and mad men from killing innocents we must do something.  American can no longer continue on the path that if you don’t agree with me I will shot you dead with a hundred bullets.


A Lesson For Romney and The Republican Southern Strategy

This morning was an object lesson in inhumanity.  This is what it seems that Republicans and the Christian Right advocate.  Hatred for anyone and everyone.  They will tell you that guns don’t kill people, people kill people.  That is a lie.  Greed and superiority are paramount.  It seems that their premise is to eliminate   by any means necessary.  I am not accusing them of murder, but I am accusing them of being accessories, giving them the means without reason to do harm.  They don’t care.  It has been evident for years.

Watch and listen to this video from a movie from 1940.  It is what we are supposed to be.  If we are just talk without action, then we deserve what we get.


God Save Us From the Good Christians or How I Would Rather Be In Hell If They Are Going To Heaven

I had hoped that this Christianity crap would not go this far, but now these men of “God” have made me mad.  Most of these people  Slicktorum, Newt, Mittens and now Franklin Graham have all been found out for what they are………racists, bigots, sexists and absolutely not christian.

First, I don’t think this bunch of old white, white-haired men [bishops] knew what they were doing when they screamed against contraception.  I don’t think they realized that this went beyond contraception, and played right into the hands of those God-fearing pretenders, and began in earnest the repeal of “Obamacare.”  The bishops didn’t understand then, but they do  now.

But what has made me mad is Slicktorum saying that Freedom of Religion has become Freedom to Worship and they are not the same thing.  Is he really that stupid.  It is a rhetorical question don’t answer.  Did he not know to google religion and discover the definition?  Or simply look the word up in the dictionary.  Religion:  service and worship of God or a divine being.  Slicktorum has it all wrong.  His definition of religious freedom means Catholicism.  Follow the dictates of the church.  As we have seen his church is lacking.  I guess now that includes Protestantism too.  I don’t usually watch “morning joe”, but I did this morning and I was dumbfounded.  This pretender to the throne of a really good man, in one brief interview offended every real christian in the world.  Maybe it was too early for him or what he drank, smoked and a new fangled drug the night before which led him to some drug induced glass eyed definition of a christian.  The man has lost his mind like all good christian republicans.  But I have gone off point and I am on a deadline to get this post done sometime tonight.  Maybe I need a new drug as the old song says.

Now back to what I was going to say before my 65-year-old brain had a momentary lapse…….Slicktorum is telling me/us that his religion or no religion. He is telling us to ignore God, the God we know, and accept his “religion”.  Not God mind you, his “religion.”  Now don’t get me wrong he has every right to belong to his “religion”, but so do I.  But it is God I/you account to, not the religion.  I may belong to the Greek Orthodox Church, but I pray and answer to God.  God is God.

How dare Slicktorum or Graham or Gingrich or Robertson, or Paul or any of them tell me that the God I worship is wrong.  How dare he or them tell me that I am not a good christian.  How dare they tell me that my “religion” is wrong.  How dare they tell me that my worship of God is not freedom of “religion”.  His God isn’t better than my God.  Christianity isn’t bad but there just are some bad people.  Islam isn’t bad, there just are some bad people, and it goes on and on.  It is not freedom of religion, it is freedom from religion.  They have no right to tell me./us theirs is better.

To hear Slicktorum, Graham or the rest of talk, you can just go out and buy your faith right off the shelf.  Not happy with it move on to the next aisle or another department. No special discounts for God.    A special on “religion” today. Can’t you just see it now, God’s Grocery Store. Bag it yourself and take home.    My momma told me about people like this a long time ago.  She told to beware of the “good christian.” They talk a good game, go to church each and every Sunday and pronounce out loud “I am a good christian”, but when they time comes for them to be what they say they are invisible.  Missing.  I just can’t sell my soul to be a “company christian”.  I will not sell my soul.

These religions, be it Catholicism or Protestantism or whatever they call it is a means for them to justify their bigotry, racism, and sexism.  Maybe the Catholic church is against contraception not because it is immoral, but because it means loss of income for the church.  More parishioners, more money.  It can’t be because they care about the health of the woman or her family.   These good Christians seem to forget that God and Jesus were not racist, bigots, sexists. That Jesus loved all mankind without exception.

They don’t seem to know much about that.  So I can do without the holy water induced rhetoric, the holier than I comedy routine.  I will be pleased to be in hell.  I’ll have good company and my dog.  I don’t want to be a good christian.  If they are examples of good Christians than damn I am happy to be bad.

Jesus loves me, yes I know.
