Shut The Flock Up!!!!!

 Well, Mom, to answer your question… some people get the warm and fuzzies thinking about what wonderful, compassionate progressives they are. It just feels so damn good to be so open-minded and CONCERNED about all of these poor VICTIMS in our society. Unfortunately for “progressives”, socialistic ideas have been proven failures throughout history, time and again. Europe is a mess at the verge of utter collapse. Libs love to cite European countries where the lifestyle is supposedly better than ours. These countries are about the size of Vermont, so whoopee whoo for them. Maybe socialism works for a country with a population of 200. Meanwhile, the U.S. props up the world economically and militarily and pays for it by borrowing from China. If people think the “progressive” way is so wonderful, I’m sure Cuba would happily accept them…it’s only a short boat ride away after all.

The above was taken from a Facebook message sent in response to her stating that some people thing that if you are not in favor of every social program thought up you must not be compassionate.  Several people commented.  They were of both parties.  But this girl went after the “progressives” and liberals.  She needs to shut the flock up.

She made an unwarranted attack.  It is obvious that she does not know very much about the affordable healthcare act, Europe, North America, and socialism.  This is reminiscent of the Vietnam War days in reverse…..if you were against the war you were a communist.  Does anybody remember “Love it or leave it”?  So we have come to that now.  But even in her rant above she lies.  Libs do not site European countries where the lifestyle is better than ours.  What we do cite is that the healthcare in all these countries is so much better than ours.  Germany, France, Greece, Spain, Italy and let’s not forget Canada,  are not the size of Vermont, and their populations exceed her 200 standard.  And we should self-deport….to Cuba.  This is the mentality in the state of Ohio.  This is my front and backyard.  Their only recourse is to degrade and denounce democrats, progressives and liberals.

If you don’t like the truth, then make up your own.  Lie about the lies you told.  Live in a parallel universe if you can’t accept the truth.  For this girl real facts are not acceptable.  It is what they do.  They have no argument, no logical argument, so they go off the reservation and declare that we are all socialists and love Stalin.  She even uses the word Romney made famous VICTIMS.  They just buy into the we are leeches theory.  She like so many others has seen and heard the Devil, and she believes.

What did you think the Devil is going to look like if he’s around? Nobody is going to be taken in if he has a long, red pointy tail.  No. I’m serious here. He will look attractive and he will be nice and helpful and he will get a job where he influences a great God-fearing nation and he will never do an evil thing…..he will just bit by bit lower standards where they are important. Just coax along flash over substance…..just a tiny bit.    Broadcast News

They have forgotten how to persuade people who don’t agree with them.  They have created their own environment and remain entrenched inside it.  They only listen to themselves and of course the Devil. They just lie about everything   Deniers about everything.  They lie about their lies.  The biggest error of the Conservatives  the Republican Party was naming Paul Ryan as Romney’s running mate  They did it simply because Ryan had a “policy” a budget, a plan.  Romney obviously has none.  Unless you count trying to take President Obama’s.  But remember, if you are a liberal, a Democrat, a progressive you are scum…..a socialist that needs to be put a ship and sent to Cuba.  A modern-day voyage of the damned.

Still, for all their talk I feel this all comes down to race.  They wont shout it out, but it is truly white against white.  Rich against poor, middle-class, women, veterans  Latinos and working families.  Just consider the extreme effort republicans have taken to eliminate voters, violate women, starve families, deprive veterans, the elderly and all hard-working Americans.  We are progressives and we should disappear.  That is their vision.

 


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.”

 

 

 


Pseudo-President Romney – Republicans Believe

 

 

 


Right-Wing Media or Mainstream Media? They Are All The Same

They have welcomed Ryan as the wonder boy for Romney.  Now, with Ryan they can lie even more and use the press to do it.  Case in point:  the Richmond Times Dispatch. This manner of reporting has been done before, but this time it was blatant and unrepentant.  The Richmond Times Dispatch ran an editorial on the then new campaign ad from Romney/Ryan, you know the one, welfare to work requirement was being removed.  It was a lie.  The Richmond Times Dispatch ran an editorial: http://www2.timesdispatch.com/news/rtd-opinion/2012/aug/15/tdopin01-gutted-ar-2131149/.  Which was a lie taken from the lie Romney initiated about welfare.  They ran it as truth.  I said it before, republicans see lies as truth, and truth as lies.  Today the Richmond Times Dispatch ran a news piece saying that the Romney ad had been proven false; http://www2.timesdispatch.com/news/2012/aug/20/new-romney-ad-pushes-debunked-claim-against-obama-ar-2142116/.  There was no apology for their blatant lie, pro Romney editorial or failure to actually do their job.  Even the newest journalism grad knows that you need at least three confirmations before you run a story.  They did nothing.  It was simple:  whatever Romney/Ryan say is the gospel truth, and our editorial board is going to say so.

So ti be clear. The Romney campaign runs an ad that’s a complete lie. Some editorial writer from the Richmond Times-Dispatch writes in defense of the ad, using the ad as the only source of material and doing no fact-checking. The Romney campaign then uses the editorial (which was based only on the original Romney ad) as evidence that their ad wasn’t a lie. When in doubt always lie, lie, lie, lie.  It makes Romney/Ryan the perfect Republican candidates.

 

Don’t let them make clowns of us.  Vote.  Tell the truth.  When newspapers lie, we must write the truth.  Expose them for what they are…hacks.

 

 


Mass Burial for Republican Party

 


“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.

The Rat and The Roach Ticket: Go Obama 2012

I must admit that last night when I heard the news that the Rat had chosen the Roach to be his VP,  I was screaming and dancing.  I was just as happy as I could be.  Democrats were handed a gift and we won.  A party that is cutting its own throat, even if it taking them a long time, they picked a man, I use that loosely, who wants to end Medicare, Medicaid and Social Security as their VP.  The author of the most draconian budget in our history wants to be second in charge.  The Roach has the gall to call it The Path to Prosperity, Restoring Americas Promise, so it was called for Budget year 2012; changed it to:  The Path to Prosperity: A Blueprint for American Renewal for Budget year 2012.  Naturally, it asks questions that be the obvious questions:  Restoring Americas Promise?  Promise for the rich; Blueprint for American Renewal? Renewal of tax cuts and destruction of everyone else.

They may have a problem:  the most prominent and partisan supporters of the Republican party have been senior citizens who both speak with their money and their vote.  they have been loud and clear “to keep your hands off my Medicare.”  The promise is that those seniors,those  Republicans will now reconsider their support, read the so-called budget and see it for what it really is, destruction and death of the poor and middle class.  That they will see lie in the statement that his Catholic faith guided him in forming this travesty.  Jesus taught us to take care of the poor.  That Jesus told the rich man to give up everything he owns, give it all away and follow him.  Must not have been part of his catechism.  His truth faith is Ayn Rand.

Then I saw this ad.  It should run on television and full length.

We cannot go back.  We can only move         

We must rise up and vote.  Ride share and take a friend.  Ohioans  get with it.  They want to stop early voting, well the we will just storm the polls.  Take a friend, family, anyone and go vote.  Tell them that we want our rights back.  Throw the elephants out.  Send the message that we know what we want, and what is good for us.  We decide what we can do with our bodies and our minds.  Tell them that all their money in elections is irrelevant.  Make it clear the BatSh#tCrazy doesn’t get it anymore.

VOTE!! DON’T BE LAZY!! TAKE A FRIEND!! THROW THE RATS TO THE DOGS!!!!!


“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.

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.

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.
