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.

 


“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!!!!!


Ohio Diary #5: Help us drink to bring jobs to Ohio

I invite you to Ohio for a drink, on me.  No, we need your money too, so that we can bring jobs to Ohio. 

Kasich’s plan to finance his new JobsOhio, a privatized development agency, includes the leasing the state’s liquor stores to JobsOhio which is going to use the money for its day to day operations. But Kasich says this will work because Ohioans are increasing their alcohol consumption.  This type of scheme has not worked in other states, but Kasich doesn’t care. Privatize, Privatize is all that is important.

“Over the years people drink more. It’s just a natural revenue stream.” Kasich said last week. Ohio’s best natural asset is its liquor intake.  Let’s just increase Ohio’s drinking problem and drunkenness. As drunk as we may be, we still need your help in getting business to come to Ohio and that means jobs, jobs, jobs. 

As I am sitting here writing this post with a glass of beer in my hand, I have to ask myself the question: If Ohioans will be drinking more and drunkenness will rise, will we not be too drunk to work?  We’ve been drinking for sometime now, so you would think that jobs would be plentiful in Ohio.  Not true.  We have to get fall down drunk for jobs to come to Ohio.  I suspect that those over imbibing are the good, kind people that voted for Kasich.  When you don’t have a job, and there is not hope in finding one, you gotta do something. Drinking seems right.

Here is the joke.  In Ohio profits on liquor sales generates $228 million for the state every year. JobsOhio is set to take over liquor sales oversight and own that revenue stream.  They will sell 30 years worth of that revenue, worth $6.8 billion to a group of investors recruited by a Wall Street firm in return for a lump sum payment to the state. According to the administration, they expect to receive about $1.5 billion in return for this $6.8 billion in state revenue. Wall Street will naturally take their cut.  They will sell bonds to finance the deal. They will have a twenty to thirty year revenue stream for essentially zero money down.  Ohio faces billions in deficits, but Kasich is giving away liquor revenue to create jobs.

So I implore you to come to Ohio, help Ohioans drink into oblivion Since we will be to sloshed to work, maybe you can get luck and take our jobs, that is if you can find one.

It is just one more for the road. Or is it…drinking again?!!!


Diary of Ohio #2

PRISON REFORM:

State Budget Deficits and Cutbacks lead to a Silver Lining:  God Bless Gov. Kasich.  In his attempt to make us solvent, he wants to let “low-hanging fruit” out on the street.  If they go in for less than a year, we could save money by not putting them in prison  Or releasing them early to save money.

When that happens, no one should be surprised when crime increases, since there aren’t enough jobs for law-abiding citizens, let alone criminals. In many areas this is haled as a smarter approach on criminal justice.  They proclaim that prison reform is a rare public policy that cuts through the liberal-conservative divide  They preach that when fewer “non-violent” offenders are sent to prison, conservatives cheer at taxpayer savings and liberals smile at a more compassionate justice system.  One of very few things that conservatives and liberals seem to agree upon…let them go just so they can commit a crime, maybe even a serious one  But we can save money.

The irony of this, is that these lunatics want to privatize prisons, make them for profit prisons.  It is almost brilliant…..let them out, catch them again and put them into a for-profit prison.  Low prison populations in private run prisons is a myth.  There is no money in it.  Private for-profit prisons are in the business of making money, not justice  Think about… a first time sex offender out on the street again, commits a worse crime and the for-profit makes more money.  But the safety of citizens is ignored.  Thank you Lord Kasich.

ANOTHER ATTACH ON ABORTION:

[T]he so-called “Heartbeat Bill” legislation, which would ban abortion as early as 18 to 24 days after conception, isn’t supported by the Ohio Right to Life Society. That organization is backing a number of other anti-abortion bills, including a ban on late-term abortions after 20 weeks except when necessary to prevent the death of the mother or the irreversible impairment of a major body function.

It is a bill created by Janet Folger Porter, a native Ohioan and president of the conservative interest group Faith2Action.  Republican State Rep. Lynn Wachtmann is prepared to unveil the so-call “Heartbeat Bill. The first proposal of its kind in the country, with other states, Texas, Georgia and Oklahoma watching intently.

“We can’t carry all the babies out of the burning building in one trip,l but with this bill will carry most of them out with it,” Porter said “With this legislation, we can save more than 20,000 lives a year. We’ve been taking baby steps for a long time. This is a leap.”

“After all, Ohio is the ‘Heart of it All’, so it’s only fitting that we protect our fellow human beings with beating hearts.” Said Wachtmann.

These right-wingnuts are always eager to save babies, stop abortion  Look at all the legislation being considered.  But nowhere in any of these bills is there any mention of what their plans are for these children after they have been “saved.”   In this case these right-wingnuts want to outlaw abortion at a point when most women don’t even know they are pregnant .

The Bill is simple:  It would prohibit women from ending pregnancies at the first detectable fetal heartbeat, sometimes as early as 18 days after conception.

Still, if you are for the bill is has its perks……Red heart balloons, heartbeat music video, and all manner of Propaganda.  It is stunning.  Check it out, get a laugh, get angry that their attempt to legislate morality of any kind.   http://www.heartbeatbill.com
