Stand Down!

Cry Me a River

Phony Outrage

For 5 years now, I've been listening to all these people cry about "rights".

Rights, which don't seem to register when someone else is losing them!

Forgive me if these self-righteous cries for "my rights" fall on empty ears.

Where were these people when rights were being taken from others?

And which, in many cases...they agreed with! Why is this?

I will tell you why: Like everything else, "rights" are a concern only when applicable to you.

And since that is the case.....I can only laugh when the former cheerleaders now cry foul.

How's it feel people, how's it feel?


Here is a short list of all the "rights" that have been lost since 2010.

Read em and weep.

Reproductive Rights

*In 1973, the U.S. Supreme Court ruled that a Constitutional right to privacy enforced through the due process clause of the 14th Amendment grants women the right to an abortion.*

This, however, does not stop legislators from ignoring the Constitution, and placing their personal views ahead of the rights of others.


"By almost any measure, issues related to reproductive health and rights at the state level received unprecedented attention in 2011. In the 50 states combined, legislators introduced more than 1,100 reproductive health and rights-related provisions, a sharp increase from the 950 introduced in 2010. By year’s end, 135 of these provisions had been enacted in 36 states, an increase from the 89 enacted in 2010 and the 77 enacted in 2009."

Here are the clever and Constitution-Ignoring ways they get around this issue:

Bans

Waiting Periods

Ultrasound

Insurance Coverage

Clinic Regulations


http://rhrealitycheck.org/article/2012/01/05/losing-ground-on-womens-rights-in-2011-sex-ed-contraception-abortion-rights-all-u/


"The Supreme Court noted in 1992, in its Planned Parenthood of Southeastern Pennsylvania v. Casey ruling, that "the ability of women to participate equally in the economic and social life of the Nation has been facilitated by their ability to control their reproductive lives."

--Kimberly Wright

Birth Control

As we know, those who advocate ignoring the Constitution, also ignore facts.

Since the Hyde Amendment in the 1970's, no federal tax monies are allowed to pay for abortions.

This doesn't stop the Constitution-Ignorers from pretending otherwise.

And, in their deliberate skirting of the facts, many women have been thrown to the way-side.

"Rachel Landon says she doesn't make much money as an actor, but she's been able to get birth control, gynecological exams and other health screenings at her local Planned Parenthood in Houston as part of the Women's Health Program, which provides care for low-income women."

These people trying to shut this down never met me, never met any of these other women," Landon, 29, told ABCNews.com. She said that since it's difficult to find a doctor she trusts, she stuck with Planned Parenthood after starting to go there in college. "Losing that not only hurts me financially, but it hurts me as a Texan on a personal level."

http://news.yahoo.com/planned-parenthood-fights-defunding-210409487--abc-news-health.html


Here is a PDF from Planned Parenthood. You can see for yourselves where the money goes: trust me, none of it for abortions.

Abortion is used as a smoke-screen for "Psssst, ladies...Don't have sex."

Voting is a Priviledge for the Few!

Voting Rights

As this rant is dealing with concrete laws, I won't get into the fact that elections are stolen through subterfuse. But honestly, with legislators like the ones we have now: Why bother?

Here are some of the tactics, which have increased in this free country:

Voter ID laws

Targeted voter purges

Deceit

Worst of all, from the pov of a Constitution-Lover, is this:

The best democracy that money can buy. "In the so-called Citizens United v. Federal Election Commission, the Republican-appointed 5-vote conservative majority on the Supreme Court decreed in 2010 that secret unlimited corporate funding for political ads is a form of Constitutionally protected "free speech." This decision dramatically shifts electoral influence away from individual voters by allowing wealthy individuals and corporations to covertly buy the election results they want with a flood of cash. At the same time, super-sized corporate campaign contributions given directly to candidates have become a legally-sanctioned form of outright bribery."

http://www.crmvet.org/info/votehist.htm

Thankfully, there are still people who speak out:

"The push by conservatives to repeal Section 5 comes on the heels of what NAACP president Benjamin Jealous has called "the greatest attacks on voting rights since segregation." After the 2010 election, GOP officials approved laws in more than a dozen states to restrict the right to vote by requiring proof of citizenship to register to vote, shutting down voter registration drives, curtailing early voting, disenfranchising ex-felons and mandating government-issued photo IDs to cast a ballot--all of which disproportionately target communities of color. The states covered by Section 5 were significantly more likely to pass such laws than those that are not."

And now, we have a challenge to the Voting Rights Act of 1964.

Gay Rights

Perhaps the most notorious form of outright discrimination in recent history, is DOMA: the Defense of Marriage Act.


"Edith Windsor, the New York widow at the centre of a US supreme court legal challenge to the act that bans federal recognition of same-sex marriage, put her case on Tuesday in a brief arguing that the law contributes to the "pervasive history of discrimination" experienced by gay people in the US.

In her brief to the court, Windsor's legal team argues that laws like Doma that classify people based on their sexual orientation should be subjected to "heightened scrutiny", a standard which calls on the court to presume that anti-gay legislation is unconstitutional and asks the government to provide a strong explanation for the law in question.

The brief notes that "gay men and lesbians have experienced a pervasive history of discrimination" and that "as a result lesbians and gay men have confronted discrimination at the hands of both government and private actors".

http://www.guardian.co.uk/world/2013/feb/26/edith-windsor-supreme-court-doma


Gay Americans are also discriminated against in tax laws, due to the plethora of tax breaks afforded to married couples of different sex.

How in the world is it following the Constitution to penalize someone for loving the wrong sex?

Workers Rights

"In December 2012, politics in Michigan was thrown into discord over a sudden decision by the state’s Republican-led Legislature to approve legislation that vastly reduced the power of unions, an especially striking move in the birthplace of the modern labor movement."

http://topics.nytimes.com/topics/reference/timestopics/subjects/o/organized_labor/index.html

Perhaps we remember this most from the upheaval in Wisconsin, when Scott Walker tried to take away collective bargaining rights:

"Illinois Democratic Gov. Pat Quinn says Gov. Scott Walker is waging a war against his state’s employees and even some of the Wisconsin governor’s GOP colleagues believe “he’s on the wrong track.”

“It's a war on workers: You know, the people who teach our kids, who plow the snow off our interstates,” Quinn Monday said on MSNBC. “Those are working men and women and they deserve a decent pay and decent retirement. They've already given up concessions in that area.

“The right to have a union and collectively bargain – about your conditions, working conditions – that's a fundamental American right,” he said. “So what Governor Scott Walker's doing in Wisconsin is just plain wrong. and I think he's going to realize it. The people of America are not on his side."

http://www.newsmax.com/InsideCover/scott-walker-pat-quinn/2011/02/28/id/387809

When workers are down-graded to "hired help", rather than co-partners in the creation of wealth, the whole country suffers.

Liberty and Justice for all begins with the ability to support your family.



All Kinds of Rights that were Obliterated under All Presidents


I won't go into this, as anyone worth their historical salt can name many.

The point I am making is this:

Those of you who see "rights" as interchangable with your politcal or world view, really have no comprehension of the word.

With a couple of hours on google, I could find hundreds of activities--past and present-- which our government has been involved in, that decimate human rights.....and can find pretty much the same thing on any school yard play-ground, or place of business.

I suppose in this circumstance, we must pick and choose those rights we deem important.

But please do not expect accolades for those who advocate for the Constitution on the one hand, but blow it to smithereens with the other.

Until true equal rights are afforded all human beings everywhere, we must pick our battles.

And, no one right holds more weight than any other.


If you think otherwise, well.....As W used to say:

Bit of Good News


"President Obama signed an executive order on Thursday establishing a bipartisan commission to examine problems of voter access after complaints of long lines at polling stations during last year’s election.

Mr. Obama promised during his State of the Union address last month that he would appoint such a panel, saying that “we are betraying our values” if voters end up sacrificing their franchise “because they can’t wait for five, six, seven hours just to cast their ballot.”

Isn't it amazing how those on the far right scream the loudest about the Constitution, yet they are the first ones to try and take away rights of others who differ from them? It is a never ending struggle to keep up the fight for equality and acceptance for all, along with common sense gun legislation. I am so glad that we are on the same side.

"A Kansas legislative committee advanced a sweeping anti-abortion bill Thursday after removing a provision that would have banned abortion clinic workers from volunteering to bake cupcakes for their children's schools.

The state House Federal and State Affairs Committee passed a 70-page bill that would tax abortions, establish life beginning at fertilization, require doctors to say that abortion causes breast cancer and prohibit state employees from performing abortions during the workday. The bill also would require doctors to tell women that abortion causes breast cancer, even though the claim defies scientific fact. The bill is likely to pass."

No kidding...private business is private business! But, they are far from done. Just like they used jobs jobs jobs to get elected in 2010, they are using this sequester to get elected in 2014.

"Obama's sequester...look what he did to you." That's what they are saying. And "Obama wants to kill you".....that one again. Remember death panels?

Liars of the highest order. And they have TV, radio, and internet trolls at their beck and call to spread the lies 24/7 non-stop.

And people hate Obama so much: they stir it up.

If they get in power again: you can kiss USA goodbye. Their goal is to give her away to the Kochs of the world.

Big Biz/Banks....slave labor, no taxes......a Plutochracy Police State.

I loved this blog. I have to laugh at the exact people you are referring to here that are all up in arms (literally) about their rights being violated but what about other people's rights. I am a woman and am shocked and saddened everyday by the constant attacks on us and our rights. I don't really understand how these things happen because aren't we supposed to have a separation of church and state so why is it the religious beliefs of others seem to dictate a lot of political and government decisions. People want to thump on the constitution and talk about it being a timeless document and what are founding fathers wanted only when convenient to their own agenda.

I will never understand the treatment of others as less than oneself. no person in this world is perfect and just because one person thinks or feels a certain way doesn't mean anyone else had to. It's our "right"!

It will be a long battle and we need people like you to help us continue to fight it! Well done!

2. Eyewitness says Gray was adjusting his belt, not shooting his gun, when the shooting began. “Mr. Gray’s sister, Mahnefah Gray, 19, said that a witness to the shooting told her that her brother had been fixing his belt when he was shot.” [New York Times, 3/10/13]

3. Eyewitness says, after he was shot, Gray said “please don’t let me die.” One of the officers responded “Stay down or, we’ll shoot you again.” [New York Times, 3/10/13]

"fascist racist xenophobic forces-"

"It goes without saying that the real «caste» – the caste of millionaires, top CEOs, financial speculators and the likes – didn’t pay any price for the situation they had created."

"the concept of «Caste» to include almost all civil servants, whom the 5SM rhetoric turns into mere parasites."

"the real targets of Grillo’s invective against public employees are trade unions. He called for the utter «elimination» of trade unions more than once."

"Another tradition they like is US «libertarianism» / «anarcho-capitalism»:" Ayn Rand....

"the character assassination of dissidents. If anyone dares disagree with Grillo and Casaleggio, their reputation must be destroyed, and this destruction shall continue long after the expulsion. These people cannot be simply left alone, their blog or Facebook page must be bombarded with derogatory comments every day."And if the dissident is a woman, sexist insults will rain on her: «wh*re», «b*tch» and the rest of the repertoire."...you mean, like sl*t?

"This is a clear manifestation of cult mentality and, in fact, the 5SM is often described as a cult."

Its all about agendas and who's agenda. Rachel Maddow out lined a survey, a legitimate one in which in every state approved of back ground checks at 70 percent and mostly better. I know surveys can be badly flawed in favour of an agenda but this one was most likely honest. Still I wonder what we would find out if we surveyed abortion or some topic Rachel does not have any desire to find out. See information only matters to the person who desires the information that supports their agenda. The Supreme Court a body of non-elected officials with supposed vast knowledge of the Constitution and no agendas. They have never gotten anything wrong, such as slavery for over a hundred years. Prohibition and then changing their minds. They even made a Corporation a person under the second amendment. I have no idea how something invisible became a human but I guess that one got by them.

Yet another reason to be grateful Romney didn't win. It's 5 to 4 right wing SC already...and 2 i consider extreme right: Scalia and Thomas.

Any more rw justices, common man has 0 chance against corporate kings and extreme religious views.

Personally--I don't give a flying fig what people think about abortion: none of it concerns anyone but the man and woman involved.

Assault rifles in the hands of nut-cases, spurred on by hate-talk tv and radio?? now, there is a threat to the whole society.

I must be stupid, because it's so obvious for me to see. They want chaos and murder, hatred and confusion.....

With those on the right it is always the same old rhetoric and catch phrases. The bottom line is the Greed Over People (GOP) Party does not give a rat's tail about the average citizen. They have proven repeatedly their allegiance to only big business and wealthy contributors, without batting an eyelash of concern for the middle class. We already know how they feel about women, gays, the poor and equality in general. Now, as if the media and airwaves aren't polluted enough, the biggest polluters of American politics, land, water and air, i.e., the Koch boys are setting their sights on purchasing newspapers in major markets. Aah, just what we need...more fair and balanced reporting.

I'm stunned by it frankly.....we women have lost our privacy rights in the blink of an eye....

We now must consider the State before we engage in sex.

And, the State, having taken away abortion, is now working on taking away birth control itself.

Big Biz has controlled the conversation, the information, the gvt policies, and-- the cost of living is tied to ceo profits.

HOWEVER, I am confident the Dems in Congress have enough of them that won't roll over, and these Birchers are going down in the flames they rode in on: oil and gas pollution, that is.

Another thing: They claim to be anti-gvt, pro-business:well, William Koch has used the gvt court sytem for 12 yrs to prevent an independent businessman from starting a business.

How's that for integrity!

I found this article infuriating yesterday. I'm just going to quote it and see if anyone's head explodes.

"Members of Congress say they are happy with their jobs and feel fulfilled by the work that they do -- even as congressional approval ratings continue to sit at near-historic lows, UPI reported Tuesday.

Members also described themselves as highly committed to their work, and believed that they are performing an important public service. " ....... "According to the report, House members indicated that “staying in touch with constituents” was the most critical part of their jobs, with 95 percent rating it as very important. Ninety-five percent of members also stated that their work gave them “a sense of personal accomplishment,” while 84 percent said it was “very important” to feel invested in the work that they are doing."

So basically we're being led by people with the ego of a sociopath and the same degree of delusion as the guy at your local mental ward claiming to be God. How did we vote these loafers in again??? Confused and aggravated as always.

Hi, here they go again....

“The American people,” Warren said, “deserve a Congress that worries less about helping big banks and more about helping regular people who have been cheated on mortgages, on credit cards, on student loans, on credit records.”

Warren was responding to the Senate GOP’s promise to block the nomination of Richard Cordray. He currently serves as director of the CFPB under a recess appointment from President Obama (an appointment that might be void under a recent federal appeals court ruling). She herself was the agency’s initial interim director until Republican filibusters forced her out and caused her to run for Senate instead. Now, 43 GOP senators have written a letter pledging to block the confirmation of a director to the CFPB unless Democrats agree to scale back the agency’s authority."

Lovemychris;

First, I would like to commend you speaking on behalf of women's rights. Calling attention to what the core understanding of "rights"themselves are was very insightful.

However, I do not agree with the general tone of your article. In one hand you are condemning the loss of women's rights, and on the other discouraging the effectiveness of voting; "But honestly, with legislators like the ones we have now: Why bother?"

If you don't participate in your local or state elections, how can you expect your officials to speak on your behalf? Being aware of the problems is not enough.

If you are this passionate on these issues, as they are worthy causes, then do more to be a part of the solution. Attend local voting campaigns, know your rights and research the best official to write to in your district. Become a member of domestic human rights groups and network with others who can get you more involved.

Trust in the system. But hold up your end.

Sincerely, Jasmin.

Actually, Jasmin, I was being sarcastic: with these R legislators we have now, who neeeds to steal elections--they are stealing them lawfully!...making laws to steal them!

Just as they are making laws to go around the Supreme Court decision on Roe v Wade...for claiming to uphold the Consitution, they sure spit on it when it doesn't suit them.

Just like all the crap they are throwing at windfarms, and solar, geothermal, Tesla....any energy source that is an alternative fossil fuel......so we are left with this:

"Whats causing cancer cluster of St. Louis? #Cancer cluster map of St. Louis http://dlvr.it/2wxdxL

Poisoned water, causing sickness in people in the community.

Big lawyers, paid-off judges....

most times people get no recompense.

It's not that I don't trust the system Jasmin, and I do vote....it's just that the whole thing is a crime syndicate. The good ones are there, but I'll bet even they don't know what they have got themselves into.

Too much evil influence--money and power and even threats of death if you don't play along.

John McCain said it: "It's hard to do good in the City of Satan."

And locally--I could get more involved, and should. We had one of the Cult try and get to state rep. But when things about his evil-ness came out: and thank god they did! Thank god he lost.

I actually feel sorry for the good and decent people who run for office...and I worry for them.

The assholes aren't just going to lie down and die. And they have 2 Big Daddies on the Supreme Court: the highest court in the land: the last refuse for the Constitution.......

They are not honest dealers, a lot of them. I have faith in good people: May they Rise and Shine!!

“This is an invitation,” Ryan explained when he unveiled the plan Tuesday. “Show us how to balance the budget. If you don’t like the way we’re proposing to balance our budget, how do you propose to balance the budget?”

Good People--

"The push by conservatives to repeal Section 5 comes on the heels of what NAACP president Benjamin Jealous has called "the greatest attacks on voting rights since segregation." After the 2010 election, GOP officials approved laws in more than a dozen states to restrict the right to vote by requiring proof of citizenship to register to vote, shutting down voter registration drives, curtailing early voting, disenfranchising ex-felons and mandating government-issued photo IDs to cast a ballot--all of which disproportionately target communities of color. The states covered by Section 5 were significantly more likely to pass such laws than those that are not.""

ib-------------

There is nothing wrong with proving eligibility to Vote.

We all have social security numbers, so why not a voting id.

How else do we know who is voting in our elections.

Who can't get a photo id, my local library requires it, and voting is more important borrowing books from the library.

-----------------------

"In her brief to the court, Windsor's legal team argues that laws like Doma that classify people based on their sexual orientation should be subjected to "heightened scrutiny", a standard which calls on the court to presume that anti-gay legislation is unconstitutional and asks the government to provide a strong explanation for the law in question.

The brief notes that "gay men and lesbians have experienced a pervasive history of discrimination" and that "as a result lesbians and gay men have confronted discrimination at the hands of both government and private actors"."

ib------------------

Why should a sexual preference be a right?

Some men prefer to have sex with children, should that preference be declared a right?

Some men prefer to have multiple wives, should that preference be declared a right?

Some people want to marry their animals, should that preference be declared a right?

Smoker's declared that they had rights, even though those rights, took away the rights of non smokers.

What does a preference of some people have to do with being a constitutional right?

Why should traditional marriage be expanded to include someones preference?

If gays want marriage, then why aren't civil unions good enough.

The LGBT could use their political and financial might to make all of the implied contractual rights of the traditional marriage equal to the civil union. The Federal Government can then declare an equivalent bracket for civil unions that match traditional marriage.

Traditional marriage shouldn't be forced to accept gays so they can validate their preference. Making civil unions have the same rights as traditional marriage is the only real solution.

You cannot realistically substitute two men or two men to be equal to one man and one woman.

It serves no purpose to try and fit a square peg into a round hole.

So what is the legal basis for this so called right of gays to marry?

You think a deadly weapon is more a right than voting?

"Since last fall, Republicans have pretended to be more moderate - but their politics are harsher and more destructive than ever.

Don't be fooled. On the ground, a very different reality is unfolding: In the Republican-led Congress, GOP-dominated statehouses and even before the nation's highest court, the reactionary impulses of the Republican Party appear unbowed. Across the nation, the GOP's severely conservative agenda - which seeks to impose job-killing austerity, to roll back voting and reproductive rights, to deprive the working poor of health care, and to destroy agencies that protect the environment from industry and consumers from predatory banks - is moving forward under full steam."

ib-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-

Any tax give aways to the rich are a product of both political parties putting them into the Internal Revenue Code.

The rich have never had the same or lower marginal tax rate than the middle class and the poor.

The so called give away is that the top marginal tax rate is less than it was, but in no case is it equal of lower than the other tax rates.

So, the culprit is the Income Tax system, not the rich.

Abolish it, and replace it with a National Sales Tax and not a Flat Tax.

20% of a $1,000 purchase is $200 while

20% of a $100,000 purchase is $20,000

So, the rich pay more taxes than the middle class or the poor.

There is no reason for the rich to pay any higher rate, than anyone else.

It is the job of the states, according to the tenth amendment to take care of the people. The federal government has increased its size and scope to take away or reduce that responsibility from the states.

The abolishment of the Federal Income Tax system and replacement by the National Sales Tax will reduce the size of the IRS, and take away any loop holes.

I don't understand your reference to Austerity, where is it and how is it being affected by the rich.

ib--------------

The only people that have any real money in the banks, are the rich, the politicians, and government employees.

Don't you also think that political fund raisers, where just the presidential election amassed well over a billion dollars is money that could have went to the people.

ib----------------------

Banks are under the control of congress, and that is both parties. The real problem is the Federal Reserve Board as it has no bounds to keep it in line. They were partially responsible for the housing bubble. If they would have raised the interest rates, many home loans, the bad ones, would have been defaulted just from the rise in interest rates. Put it the other way, it was low interest rates that kept the housing bubble up until it collapsed.

We keep hearing about discrimination for race, gender, orientation etc, but why is it not discrimination to have multiple tax brackets.

BTW, the rich donate billions to charity.

If you want the rich to pay more, with less loopholes, then change the system.

Also, there is a major difference between austerity, and the proper handling of funds. The trust funds in the US Government, are not protected and they are used as a general fund super money supply.

President Obama steals over $700 billion dollars from Medicare to fund his Obamacare, and then the politicians say that Medicare is in trouble.

The US government is being run by a congress and a president that doesn't understand simple arithmetic. They won't cut spending, and yet you want the rich to pay more, so that the government can spend more.

It doesn't make any sense.

Raising the minimum wage will cause the cost of living to increase for all of us. When the minimum wages go up buisnesses will not absorb that cost, they pass that cost on to the consumer by giving us higher prices for products or smaller portions. After the smoke clears the minimum wage employees are right back to not being able to afford a living and wanting a higher minmum wage. Let's bring costs down instead of raising wages.


lovemychris profile image

lovemychris 3 years ago from Cape Cod, USA Author

Bring what costs down? Cost of everything is determined same as wages: profit for the tippy top.

The only way things are going to change is when the people at the top stop taking so much, and we see real trickle down.

And that is going to take a chnage in attitude about life and how we want to live.

As far as I can tell, America isn't there yet.

A lot of them despite billions in profit, high paid CEO's, Stock holders and even bail outs paid practically nothing. Even still they have billions in off shore accounts. So all profit while they degrade our infrastructure every day, rent land for nothing, take natural resources and pollute the environment all for free. At the same time they pay low wages, reduce hours, pay no benefits and claim to do charity work in the true name of advertising and further tax write off’s. No average citizen can be this dumb and bent on destroying their own lives. Not even mentioned is globalism and the destruction of every small independent person in this country.

"So, the culprit is the Income Tax system"

I agree, but I would just say the tax system.

Too many loop-holes and ways for the uber wealthy to get out of paying.

"I don't understand your reference to Austerity, where is it and how is it being affected by the rich."

The only reason it went into effect, is because the Republicans refused to end the carried interest loop-hole!

They refuse to compromise, and so we have this austerity......on the POOR.

"In a sense, Michigan’s Emergency Manager law does turn citizens into customers. Emergency Managers offer up the city as a product, paid for in tax dollars, and citizens can either accept that product or move away. But the citizens don’t own the city in any meaningful sense, even if they’ve lived there all their lives. The EM owns the city, and he makes the rules.

This is not how citizenship is supposed to function in a republic. In a republic, the state is owned by the citizens, and the task of governance is a collective enterprise in which all citizens are invited—even obliged—take part. Citizens don’t passively receive a product or service; they build that product themselves, together. They argue, they deliberate, they deconstruct, and they create.

As the essayist William Deresiewicz has written, “Citizens do more than express a preference every other year. Citizens don’t just look after themselves, they take responsibility for the collective good—or rather, they look after themselves by taking responsibility for the collective good.” Consumers, on the other hand, just “use stuff up.”

Snyder’s political project has been to turn the people of Michigan from citizens of a republic into consumers of a product. As a result, he has presided over an unprecedented strengthening of the Emergency Manager law and instituted EMs across the state. He has signed right-to-work laws which undermine the concept of democratic citizenship within the workplace. What’s more, he’s justified his actions with colorless platitudes about freedom and customer service. But don’t let the banality fool you: this is a radical project, one which changes the very meaning of citizenship into something unrecognizable to members of a democracy."--Ned Resnikoff

One would hope that a nominee for a the Secretary of Labor might believe that enforcing our nations laws would be important. Mr. Perez is well know in both his actions and views to the contrary in regards to existing immigration laws. He is a tireless advocate of open boarders and anything that allows for the mass defrauding of American citizens if it promotes the possible citizenship of virtually anyone coming to this nation illegally. Its no surprise that a president who routinely embraces fraud for political gain would nominate someone like Mr. Perez. We can do better.

From www.empowernetwork.com - Today, 12:34 PM

byJody Field

"Republicans Senators filed five anti-abortion amendments on Thursday night and Friday morning to the budget resolution as part of the marathon voting session known as “vote-a-rama.”

Sen. Mike Lee (R-Utah) filed the District of Columbia Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act, which would ban abortions after 20 weeks of gestation in Washington, D.C., based on the theory that fetuses can feel pain at that point. A similar bill introduced by Rep. Trent Franks (R-Ariz.) in 2012 sparked protests in the hallway outside of Franks’ congressional office.

Sen. Marco Rubio (R-Fla.) introduced an amendment that would make it a crime to transport a minor across state lines for an abortion in order to evade parental consent laws. An amendment offered by Sen. David Vitter (R-La.) would ban abortions that are performed because of the gender of the fetus, and another offered by Sen. Deb Fischer (R-Neb.) would allow hospital or health care workers to opt out of participating in an abortion procedure or dispensing emergency contraception if they morally object to it."

In this society, almost all women are forbidden to read."

Old Refrigerator Unable To Control When It Releases Water Anymore

ODESSA, TX—In the midst of yet another embarrassing clean-up, local woman Melissa Crosby, 43, told reporters Thursday that her old refrigerator has completely lost the ability to control when it releases water. “At first, I’d notice a little bit of condensation trickling off the door every now and then, but lately there’s been a giant puddle seeping from its defroster tube just about every morning, the poor old thing,” said Crosby of her incontinent household appliance, while using a bath towel to soak up the growing pool of liquid emanating from the 25-year-old icebox. “I feel bad having to clean up after it and keep it dry, but I’m not sure if there’s anything else I can do at this point. This fridge is getting up there in years, and certain functions just break down after a while.” Crosby added that her aging refrigerator’s involuntary leakage has been made even more humiliating in light of a recent power outage that caused the appliance to discharge the contents of its freezer compartment all over itself.

While we were sleeping...

NEW YORK — Preet Bharara, the man dubbed the new sheriff of Wall Street, notched another arrest in the government's vast insider trading probe.

This time the top federal prosecutor in Manhattan nabbed a top portfolio manager at one of America's biggest hedge funds. SAC Capital Advisors' Michael Steinberg was led out of his Park Avenue apartment building in handcuffs early Friday morning. It's a major arrest at a fund that has long drawn government scrutiny.

Bharara, 44, has carved out a reputation for being a tough prosecutor who has overseen some of the most high-profile white-collar criminal cases since the 1980s. His quest to bring Wall Street wrongdoers to justice has claimed 71 insider trading convictions since taking office three years ago.

"I'm like a lot of Americans. I care about the underdog," Bharara told The Times in an interview. "You want to make sure you're fighting for them. It's a long American tradition."

Planned Parenthood of Indiana, in conjunction with the ACLU, has vowed to fight the new law and will very likely challenge it in court.

Republicans are going to put Keystone through whether Obama signs or not.

This is fascist take-over, no doubt about it. Guess they dint need RMoney--they do it regardless!

"This week, House Republicans are putting forward a bill called the “Northern Route Approval Act.” This bill overrides the President’s authority to make decisions on the Keystone XL Pipeline.

Whatever you think about the Keystone Pipeline, this bill is blatantly unconstitutional. The Constitution provides for a legislative branch, which creates legislation — laws of general application. It also provides for an executive branch, which executes the laws. This is known as the separation of powers. The bill that the Republicans are putting forward is a clear violation of this principle.

The bill does one more thing: it bestows special favors on a foreign oil company, TransCanada. It lets the corporation build the Keystone XL pipeline without going through normal government approval processes, and even gives TransCanada a free right-of-way worth millions of dollars. House Republicans have said they want to get rid of Congressional earmarks. Yet here they are, bestowing an earmark anyway."

2. Congress declined to force administration transparency/honesty on secret interpretations of the law in 2001 (USA PATRIOT ACT), 2008 (NSA immunity), 2011 (the Wyden amendment to the NDAA, which would have required interpretations not be secret) & 2012 (the similar Markley amendment to the NDAA). Those last two actually got voted down, which means Congress voted to enable secret government legal interpretation.

3. All of the opprobrium you should feel at the government’s ridiculously broad surveillance powers needs to be directed at CONGRESS, which keeps approving them while voting they stay secret."

"Many people think that a human being is created at the time of conception but this belief is not supported by the bible. The fact that a living sperm penetrates a living ovum resulting in the formation of a living fetus does not mean that the fetus is a living human being. According to the bible, a fetus is not a living person with a soul until after drawing its first breath.

After God formed man in Genesis 2:7, He “breathed into his nostrils the breath of life and it was then that the man became a living being”. Although the man was fully formed by God in all respects, he was not a living being until after taking his first breath.

In Job 33:4, it states: “The spirit of God has made me, and the breath of the Almighty gives me life.”

Again, to quote Ezekiel 37:5&6, “Thus says the Lord God to these bones: Behold, I will cause breath to enter you, and you shall live. And I will lay sinews upon you, and will cause flesh to come upon you, and cover you with skin, and put breath in you, and you shall live; and you shall know that I am the Lord.”

In Exodus 21:22 it states that if a man causes a woman to have a miscarriage, he shall be fined; however, if the woman dies then he will be put to death. It should be apparent from this that the aborted fetus is not considered a living human being since the resulting punishment for the abortion is nothing more than a fine; it is not classified by the bible as a capital offense.

According to the bible, destroying a living fetus does not equate to killing a living human being even though the fetus has the potential of becoming a human being. One can not kill something that has not been born and taken a breath. This means that a stillborn would not be considered a human being either. Of course, every living sperm has the potential of becoming a human being although not one in a million will make it; the rest are aborted. .

God has decreed, for one reason or another, that at least one-third of all pregnancies shall be terminated by a spontaneous abortion during the first trimester of pregnancy and that a number will be terminated after the first trimester. It would appear that God does not have any more regard for the loss of a fetus than he does for the loss of a placenta or a foreskin despite the fact that these were living tissue as the result of conception.

There is nothing in the bible to indicate that a fetus is considered to be anything other than living tissue and, according to scripture, it does not become a living being until after it has taken a breath. "

"Some commentators blame major legislation adopted since 2008 — the stimulus bill and other recovery measures and the financial rescues — for today’s record deficits. Yet those costs pale next to other policies enacted since 2001 that have swollen the deficit and that have lasting effects.

Just two policies dating from the Bush Administration — tax cuts and the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan — accounted for over $500 billion of the deficit in 2009 and will account for nearly $6 trillion in deficits in 2009 through 2019 (including associated debt-service costs of $1.4 trillion). By 2019, we estimate that these two policies will account for almost half — over $8 trillion — of the $17 trillion in debt that will be owed under current policies. These impacts easily dwarf the stimulus and financial rescues, which will account for less than $2 trillion (just over 10 percent) of the debt at that time. Furthermore, unlike those temporary costs, these inherited policies do not fade away as the economy recovers."

Grown-Ups:

"As Americans should recall, the Bush administration rollout of the Medicare drug benefit for 43 million elderly Americans was a disaster. Ohio Congressman John Boehner admitted as much to Fox News in February 2006 when he lamented that two years after its passage, "The implementation of the Medicare plan has been horrendous." As Ezra Klein recently recounted, in his rare moment of candor the future Speaker was right:

In 2006, the bill went into effect. It was a disaster. Computer systems didn't communicate with one another. Seniors were confused. Some of the poorest and sickest enrollees -- "dual eligibles" who qualify for aid under both Medicare and Medicaid -- weren't able to get their drugs. It was so bad that in his 2006 State of the Union address, Bush "said nothing about the new Medicare prescription drug program, an initiative Republicans once hoped to trumpet but has angered many seniors in its implementation," reported the Washington Post.

Much like Republican opponents of the Affordable Care Act in 2010, most Democratic Senators and almost all Democratic House members voted against Bush's Medicare Rx plan because they considered it an unnecessarily expensive, unfunded giveaway to insurance companies and pharmaceutical firms. But unlike Republican obstructionists who went to the Supreme Court, attempted to repeal and defund the law, blocked the expansion of Medicaid, refused to set up their own state health care exchanges, sought to cut-off funds for Obamacare "navigators," tried to halt spending on outreach and customer service, and even proclaimed they would refuse to answer constituent calls, Democrats at all levels helped save Bush's signature health care achievement from its disastrous roll-out. As then-Senator Hillary Clinton reasoned in 2006:

"I voted against it, but once it passed I certainly determined that I would try to do everything I could to make sure that New Yorkers understood it, could access it, and make the best of it."

All these Cons talking about all the taxes in America....food, gas, clothes, car, home, etc etc........as if even the air they breathe is taxed.

Beware...this is what Republicans have planned for America.

"Republicans and their wealthy paymasters have long lusted to pillage senior citizens’ pension funds through various schemes ranging from embezzlement to leveraging companies into bankruptcy such as the vulture capitalist tactic perfected by Willard Romney’s company Bain Capital. Americans should take a serious look at the evolving story of Detroit’s recent bankruptcy filing, because the tactics Governor Rick Snyder is using to deny 30,000 public sector employees their hard-earned pensions is a warning of what Republicans have in store for Americans at risk of losing their Social Security retirement income to spending cuts, tax breaks for corporations and the wealthy, and the phony debt and deficit scam."

Nohhhh! I don't believe it! *SNARK*

Company Behind Troubled Obamacare Website Donated Heavily To Republicans In 2012

"Republicans’ new Obamacare attack line hinges on allegations that the contractor in charge of building the disastrous healthcare.gov website landed the gig through sweetheart deals from the Obama administration.

But according to Federal Election Commission records, that company’s PAC gave more to House Republicans than House Democrats during the 2012 cycle — including a $2,000 check for the GOP’s chief scandal investigator, Oversight Committee Chair Darrell Issa. What’s more, executives of CGI Federal personally gave more than twice as much to GOP presidential candidate Mitt Romney than to President Obama.

The contractor has also feasted on more than $2.4 billion worth of IT work dating back to the early Bush Administration."

But viagra?........no problem--freebee city. Your right for us to help you have sex, after all.

If sex is so dirty, as a lot of people tell us, why should tax-payers pick up the bill when a man has reached the age of a non-functioning penis?

Ahhahaha!!! "The only scandal in Washington is Darrell Issa"---

"Last June it was revealed that the Treasury Department’s inspector general for tax administration said they were told by House Oversight Chairman Darrell Issa (R-Calif.) “to narrowly focus on Tea Party organizations.” The inspector general’s audit found that groups seeking tax-exempt status with “Tea Party” and “patriots” in their name did receive extra attention from the IRS, but it was because Issa instructed them to and not because the White House issued an order like Republicans are claiming again to thwart new IRS rules for 501(c)(4) social welfare groups. If Republicans are so enamored with ferreting out Washington corruption, they would immediately launch an investigation into Darrell Issa for explicitly instructing the IRS to target groups with “teabagger,” “patriot,” and “9/12” in their names instead of wasting taxpayer time and money over a manufactured scandal.

Not only did Issa set the IRS up to scrutinize teabagger groups and then spend the next year wasting time and taxpayer money investigating the Obama White House, he profited from his “investigation” conservatives hoped would take down President Obama and cast aspersion on the IRS. Issa’s campaign raised nearly $450,000 more than his previous quarter for the largest fundraising effort since he took office eleven years ago for his effort to portray the Obama Administration as corrupt. Issa’s fabrication led to a still active petition to demand a Congressional Ethics Committee investigation into Issa for purposely manufacturing the IRS scandal and profiting from it.

Issa is still corrupt and on Tuesday two key Democrats on the House Oversight Committee accused him of surreptitiously orchestrating partisan meetings with the federal investigator who issued the report last year on Internal Revenue Service actions. Reps. Elijah E. Cummings (D-MD) and Gerald E. Connolly (D-VA) sent a letter to Treasury Department IG Russell George alleging that he held Republican-only meetings at Issa’s request. The letter said, “Chairman Issa’s staff forbade you from including any Democratic committee members or staff in that meeting, and your staff accepted these terms without even informing my office.”

speaking of Hubris....

"This book presents a disturbing composite of officials in the highest echelons of the US government. In essence, the premise is that officials in the White House, NSA, CIA and other government agencies responsible for the security of this nation skewed, ignored or twisted intelligence to fit their own personal and/or geopolitcal views regarding the Middle East and to support a pre-existing agenda to make war with Iraq. This premise is convincingly supported by painstaking research, including extremely revealing glimpses into the mindset of the government leaders. One of the most provocative and telling quotes is attributed to the President, who, after the Valerie Wilson debacle, was asked by one reporter what level of accountability would be imposed. The President was recounted as replying that the 2004 election was the 'accountability moment'. No one in his administration was ever fired, even after later information confirmed their ineptitude."

Towery — in 2007, alleging that the U.S. Army had directed operatives to infiltrate and collect information about the activist movement in the Washington area. According to the newly released documents, the U.S. Army paid Towery, a Criminal Information and Systems Officer, to spy on the antiwar group Port Militarization Resistance (PMR), as well as the Students for a Democratic Society, the Industrial Workers of the World, and Iraq Veterans Against the War.

Why don't you and Obama go find a country that want to be socialist and move there together. The people of this country deserve the freedoms this country was founded on by our forefathers. This has been long forgotten an it is sad. You can't have equal rights for all citizens, as some citizens are rapists and murderers.

Deputy national security advisers Ben Rhodes and Caroline Atkinson and senators John McCain, Harry Reid and Mary Landrieu, Dan Coats and Robert Menendez were among the Americans barred from Russia, the Foreign Ministry said.

Naturally, the common people don’t want war …but it is always a simple matter to drag the people along, whether it is a democracy, or a fascist dictatorship, or a parliament, or a communist dictatorship. All you have to do is to tell them they are being attacked, and denounce the pacifists for lack of patriotism and exposing the country to danger. It works the same in every country.

YET AGAIN......a "scandal" for Obama, that never was for Bush:

"Prior to 2002, court martials for deserters were very rate. The vast majority of Army deserters—94 percent of the 17,000 who deserted between 1997 and 2001—were simply released from the Army with other-than-honorable discharges.

But beginning in 2003, army prosecutions of deserters increased sharply, in the face of growing numbers of soldiers dropping off the rolls rather show up for duty in Iraq and Afghanistan, with many receiving negative discharges or prison time.

For example, of the nearly 4,000 deserters counted in the fiscal year 2001, 4 percent were prosecuted. Just the year before, the number was just 1 percent.

In early 2002, the Army quietly issued a new directive pushing for the reintegration of deserters wherever possible, an order that didn't go over well with Army officers. As one put it, "I can't afford to babysit problem children everyday."

Thanks to holes in the system, some deserters end up collecting money they didn't earn. According to a report by the Government Accountability Office, between 2000 and 2002 the Army shelled out nearly $7 million to about 7,500 soldiers who had deserted or were otherwise absent without authorization."

"The Bundy acolytes who murdered two Las Vegas police officers in a Cici’s Pizza restaurant, draped Gadsden flags over them, stripped them of their weapons and ammunition, then moved across the street to Walmart, where they killed one more person before taking their own lives, have quite an interesting array of “likes” on their Facebook page.

Jerad and Amanda Miller were strong supporters of Cliven Bundy (Jerad had even spoken at Bundy Ranch) and firmly believed that the Battle of Bunkerville really was the beginning of a revolution, rather than a horribly executed colonial LARP event. The couple truly felt that Cliven Bundy was somehow being bullied by the federal government, to whom Bundy owes more than $1 million.

The couple left behind a mixture of Bundy Ranch interviews they conducted, paranoid rants, and cat videos on YouTube, frightening Facebook diatribes, and a list of “likes” that many may find disconcerting when considered alongside their strong belief in welfare cattle.

The folks at Newscorpse posed a very good question: Why doesn’t the media call it terrorism? Anything remotely similar with groups that have slightly darker skin tones would have been called terrorism. We have two people who were a part of a group that made demands of the federal government at gunpoint, called bomb threats in to a local hotel that was housing BLM agents, and has been accused of setting up armed checkpoints along roads. Both of them are strong supporters of the Three Percenter militia — you know, the one whose leader threatened to castrate Harry Reid and promised a civil war?"

So, if the complaint about South American immigrants is socio-economic....how come we allow this?

"Thomas Stauffer, a consulting economist in Washington. For decades, his analyses of the Middle East scene have made him a frequent thorn in the side of the Israel lobby.

• The US has already guaranteed $10 billion in commercial loans to Israel, and $600 million in "housing loans." Stauffer expects the US Treasury to cover these.

• The US has given $2.5 billion to support Israel's Lavi fighter and Arrow missile projects.

• Israel buys discounted, serviceable "excess" US military equipment. Stauffer says these discounts amount to "several billion dollars" over recent years.

• Israel uses roughly 40 percent of its $1.8 billion per year in military aid, ostensibly earmarked for purchase of US weapons, to buy Israeli-made hardware. It also has won the right to require the Defense Department or US defense contractors to buy Israeli-made equipment or subsystems, paying 50 to 60 cents on every defense dollar the US gives to Israel.

US help, financial and technical, has enabled Israel to become a major weapons supplier. Weapons make up almost half of Israel's manufactured exports. US defense contractors often resent the buy-Israel requirements and the extra competition subsidized by US taxpayers.

• US policy and trade sanctions reduce US exports to the Middle East about $5 billion a year, costing 70,000 or so American jobs, Stauffer estimates. Not requiring Israel to use its US aid to buy American goods, as is usual in foreign aid, costs another 125,000 jobs.

• Israel has blocked some major US arms sales, such as F-15 fighter aircraft to Saudi Arabia in the mid-1980s. That cost $40 billion over 10 years, says Stauffer.

Stauffer's list will be controversial. He's been assisted in this research by a number of mostly retired military or diplomatic officials who do not go public for fear of being labeled anti-Semitic if they criticize America's policies toward Israel."

In the United States, a black man is killed by the police or vigilantes every 28 hours. America has a problem — a racial discrimination problem. And it is a question not only of civil rights, but of basic human rights and the nation’s failure to meet its obligations under international law. On August 13 and 14 — only days after the tragic fatal shooting of Michael Brown in Ferguson, Missouri — the United Nations reviewed the U.S. government’s compliance with the International Convention on the Elimination of All Forms of Racial Discrimination, or CERD. Many Americans may not have heard of CERD, which is an international human rights agreement outlining measures that nations should take to prevent, eliminate and redress racism and racial discrimination. Adopted by the UN in 1965, CERD became a part of U.S. law in 1994. And the convention demands a much higher standard than U.S. civil rights law. CERD forbids any practices that have a disparate impact on people of color and indigenous groups, regardless of the intent. In addition, nations such as the U.S. that have signed CERD must safeguard against socioeconomic discrimination, such as promoting the right to a good education, adequate work with a decent standard of living, access to justice and voting rights. - See more at: http://endthenra.com/the-killing-of-black-men-is-a...

Net Neutrality is like the Fairness Doctrine. Take it away, and you have one sided tyranny: ie: money talks, and only those with money talk.

It has been proven.

When they did away with the FD, there was no obligation to provide diverse opinions on the PUBLIC airwaves.

Therefore, RW bought up radio stations, and to this day, you have all RW, all the time....in Boston, no less.

There is a duty of gvt to protect ALL our speech: not put it up for sale.

Here. where I am, Mr Rush Limbaugh gets 2 minutes to speak his views.....5 days a week, before the "regular" news day starts. This happen on both am 1030, and WXTK fm.

There is no rebuttal, no 2 minutes from the other side..or any other side, for that matter.

It is Rush's world.

Now I ask you: where is the 1st amendment for those who don't believe like him.

It doesn't exist. The PUBLIC hears him only.

And it is this way on talk radio 20 hrs a day. One RW talk host after the other.

And it's nothing to do with ratings.....this is a blue state: it's all down to ownership.

"If you have not yet read Darren Wilson's testimony to the Ferguson grand jury which decided that he would suffer no ill consequences for his decision to kill Michael Brown, please do so.

Wilson's description of the events on the day that he decided to shoot and kill an unarmed person cannot be adequately relayed to you by a second party.

The absurd, unfathomable, and fantastical story which Wilson spun out of the whole cloth in order to justify killing an unarmed black teenager combines the deepest and ugliest white supremacist stereotypes and fantasies about black folks' humanity such as the "negro fiend", "black beast", and "giant negro", with white racist paranoiac thinking, and dialogue from blaxploitation movies."

Is it true he said all this.....I heard he called Brown a demon.....but Negro.......I told you, it is KKK!

That's why Wilson went into hiding, and people were willing to hide him. KKK underground. Just like Simmerman--the KKK sent money for his defense fund!

why you really think there is so much sadistic treatment of blacks here....really.

The way the Sios treat Palestinians....The way the Nasis treated Jews.....come on, man: think about it!

It's these people in power and their racial hatred is given free reign.

"According to Wilson, he saw Brown place his hand inside his belt as if he had a gun."

Johsnon says Brown was wearing gym shorts....no belt, nowhere to put a gun....this is easy enough to check...

Another lie of Wilsons', to make himself the victim , to justify this murder. IMO

Add the medical and it really adds up. Why dont they just do a means test after that 4 yrs....or why dont they remove cap on SS. Seems better than making poor seniors suffer.

Most people on welfare are old--.And I guess it doesn't matter to Republicans that Walmart pay is so low,their employees are on medicare and food stamps.....even tho Walmart makes billions in profit.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-rtySUhuokM

The biggest benefactors of welfare in America are rich corporations, military industrial, and banks. Shields them from paying a living wage, pays for their world domination ideology, and bails them out when they gamble and lose with our money.

As video states....ALL Americans depend on welfare one way or another....

tax deductions on mortgages.....

Subsidides for middle class home-owners.....etc

If you are married w kids......you get lots o tax breaks....Uber rich pay less percentage of income than middle class...

"Expect the Sunday talk shows to cast today's senseless slaughter of NY police officers as relevant to the current national debate about excessive force by police. They're not stupid, just lazy.

People on Sunday talk shows like to pretend history started this morning. It didn't. While they focus on all the outrage of NYPD, turning their backs on de Blasio and trying to shift the blame to him for this senseless atrocity -- claiming he "has blood on his hands" .... I wonder...

Where was the outrage directed at Clive Bundy when his followers, Jerad and Amanda Miller, were killing cops and draping the corpses with a Gadsden flag?

Where was the outrage directed at James Yeager when his follower, James Gilkerson, was shooting at cops with an AK-47?

Where was the outrage directed at Glenn Beck when his fan, Richard Poplawski, was killing cops with a rifle?

Where was the outrage directed at Mike Huckabee when they guy he paroled, Maurice Clemmons, killed more cops in a single instance than anyone else in American history?

And speaking about cops turning their backs on people who "have blood on their hands" ...

Did they turn their backs on Bush after his administration lied about the air quality at Ground Zero being safe?

Did they turn their backs on Paul Ryan, and the rest of the GOP when they denied healthcare benefits to 9/11 first responders dying of lung cancer and other ailments from working The Pile without proper equipment?

Why all the sudden outrage on TV now? The other cases weren't politically useful? Or am I just being too cynical? By the way, since when did FOX start caring about people named Liu or Ramos?"

We have a brief moment to realise the truth!!!Before they shut it down again....

The Universe is conspiring for us....grab it!Stop eating Monsanto foods!

"FOX News and other neoconservative media outlets engage in alarmist rhetoric about Sharia law coming to America, with one guest using the Charlie Hebdo shootings to call for a “Muhammad Law” which would be used to target subversive, even if non-violent, Islamist activists that seek to “overthrow freedom.” Meanwhile, the rather dull comedian Bill Maher has used his media platform to snipe about the allegedly “hundreds of millions” of Muslims that support terrorism, calling for the West to “stand up for liberal principles.” None of these commentators have noticed the extensive support Western governments have rendered to radical Islam over the past three and a half decades. Nor was mention given to the fact, as exposed by whistleblower Colonel Anthony Schaffer, that Anwar al-Awlaki, the now-dead cleric who allegedly inspired the Charlie Hebdo jihadists, was an FBI informant. Such connections are blissfully non-existent in the elite-controlled media.

Just as our overlords profit from running the global drug trade, they also demand ever more surveillance authority to protect the citizenry from terrorism while funding, training and arming those very same terrorists. America and its allies bomb ISIS, yet ISIS continues to expand. The war is not meant to be won; deep-state terrorism is designed to re-order society at the most fundamental level.

The music changes, but the song remains the same."

"former CIA analyst Ray McGovern believes that delaying Iran's nuclear capabilities is not the primary concern of a military strike, but simply the pretext.

"The Israelis want to pretend the Iranians are building up their nuclear capabilities, want to zap them between now and November 6, and the chances are at least even that they will try to do that thinking the U.S. will come in with both feet," McGovern told us.

McGovern thinks that "Israel does not fear a nuclear weapon in Iran's hands" because Israel already has a nuclear arsenal and the threat of Iran having a couple of nukes "would not be all that credible except in a limited, deterrent way."

That deterrent would be important, however, because "since 1967 the Israelis have been able to pretty much do whatever they want in that area" and a nuclear Iran would bring a "different strategic situation because, for the first time, Israel would have to look over their shoulder."

For this,your children die.

How about the Knesset invite President Obama over there.

He can stand in their hollowed halls and suggest that they stop the illegal settlement building--which is going on as we speak.

He could ask them to stop treating Palestinians like Devils playthings.

He could remind them that we pay them a lot of money....not to mention, the military might we give them, and respect should be a given!

He could remind them that they are making us look bad due to our one-sided middle east policy--which is forever supporting their expansion and murderous policies.

And really--he could ask them how Iran using nuclear energy hurts America one whit?

Why is it our problem?

And he could ask: why should Israel be allowed nuclear, when they refuse to sign non-proliferation treaty???

Iran has signed it....she is no threat to USA....or Israel.

Lastly--our president should stand there and seriously question why his people need to be involved in the horrible treatment of fellow man, provide money, weapons and human treasure, for a place that doesn't even respect his work as a president?

Wonder how many standing O's he'd get.

"Ukraine’s post-coup regime is now melding neo-Nazi storm troopers with Islamic militants – called “brothers” of the hyper-violent Islamic State – stirring up a hellish “death squad” brew to kill ethnic Russians in eastern Ukraine, on Russia’s border, reports Robert Parry

The underlying message seems to be that it’s time for the American people and the European public to step up their financial and military support for a Ukrainian regime that has unleashed on ethnic Russians a combined force of Nazis, white supremacists and Islamic militants (considered “brothers” of the Islamic State)."

Dear Hubpages....I urge you to do something about your favored people. This type of thing has gone on long enough:

"Anti-gun and anti-Semitic... we got a twofer here."

This personal smear of anti-Semitism has been used on me too many times to mention.

May I remind you:

"Defamation Law falls under Tort Law. It refers to false statements about a person, communicated as fact to one or more other persons by an individual or entity (such as a person, newspaper, magazine, or political organization), which causes damage and does harm to the target’s reputation and/or standing in the community. Defamation is addressed primarily by state legislation. However, Constitutional Law may also apply, as the right of freedom of speech also extends to certain defamation claims. Defamation is categorized as either Slander or Libel.

The general harm caused by defamation is identified as being ridiculed, shamed, hated, scorned, belittled or held in contempt by others, and lowers him/her in esteem of a reasonably prudent person, due to the communication of the false statement."

*****

Ding Ding Ding.

This has been my experience here, carried out by a select group.

Personally, I think they are Hasbara.

Whatever the case: Enough is enough. Defamation of character.

What is so hard to get?

If you don't like abortion--don't have one.

If you don't like a radio jock--don't listen.

Why the need to make sure no one else can, either?

I will say the same for sugar, salt and cigarettes....if you don't like them: don't use them! Why the need to ban them from others?

But pulllleaze don't sit here and tell me : "Liberals are always central planning our lives. Good thing WE don't do that"

Uh..yeah---you do.

And basically, your philosophy is "conform or get out"

"If you are duty bound to call them out when they get outrageous, then you also are duty bound as a citizen to praise them when they do something good."

Interesting....I have been here 5 years. Seen a lot of nasty stuff said about liberals, democrats, prez Obama.....

Not once have I seen anyone demand that they say something good about them--or are duty bound to do so!

Would make interesting experiment.

1. Lefties say something good about righty's

2. Righty's say something good about lefties

Just learned that Ben Carson used fetal brain tissue in his research..you know, to help others.

He justified it by saying that they were already "dead"--not like what Planned Parenthood is doing.....

That's EXACTLY what PP is doing....and he just revealed his complete and utter stance of a hypocrite.

And now all you PP haters will have to condemn him, just as you do PP: or reveal your hypocricy, too!

I, for one, can thank him for trying to help other humans....but his condemnation of my gender when he is on the same page makes me sick!

This whole immigrant issue is racist!

And Trump should know better...as should Bush.

There are a whole lot more than Mexican and Asian "illegal aliens" in America.

Irish

Bulgarian

Macedonian

etc etc etc

In fact, where I work--this guy from Europe who was hired and signed a contract, quit-- and is driving tucks somewhere.....

By quitting, he violated his visa.

But he wants to stay here, and is doing it thru the underground.

Which, I'm sure Trump must know about.....since he's so business savvy.

But it's white European immigrants.......don't hear much about it, do we?

And what about people who have dual citizenship, allowed high-level positions our gvt? How come that doesn't bother anyone?

We only focus on the border.

There are many more issues here.

Cops killing citizens...using brutality.....any responsibility, or just excuses and lies?

Shutting down the public government over abortion??? WHILE asking for more money for military, so you can kill more people?

I mean...give me a break.

Putting foreign country and leader above your own?

Preventing regs on guns and Wall Street even tho we KNOW it is needed?

Personal responsibility is dead.

If we can't blame guns, then why are drugs illegal?

I mean--heroine and cocaine are inanimate objects...on their own, they do no harm...only when injected do they cause damage.

And it's not the drugs fault...it's the people!

"Drugs don't take people, people take drugs"

So, make drugs legal--remove the penalty's on them, and let every single person locked up on drug related offenses OUT!

Then, we can work on the root causes that make people take them.

After all, I can argue that doing drugs is my pursuit of happiness...also, that I have the right to be secure in my person....doing what I like. Legally,I have a Constitutional Right to take drugs. You have no right to stop me.

I'm sure the NRA will be contacting me on this freedom and constitution issue right away.

The 2nd amendment IS causing mass killings. Obviously.

Otherwise-- why are people trying to overturn Roe v Wade?

Because they say Roe v Wade allows, therefore--causes abortion, that's why.

Same way gun advocates say the 2nd allows everyone the right to have a gun, thereby causing all these mass shootings.

Same way Citizens United is responsible for unlimited money in politics.

Don't pretend otherwise....for gods sakes, you use it as the gold standard of gun ownership!

Without the 2nd--you wouldn't have so many people hornswaggled that guns are good for society.

And you wouldn't be able to claim it as a right.

Ergo: guns would be the anathema that they truly are.

"Jewish people are commanded to kill non Jewish people who do not agree to abandon Christianity and Islam and be governed by Jewish law. They must all agree to follow the seven laws. You ask them "Do you follow the seven laws? If so, we will allow you to live." If not, you kill all of their males, by sword. We will conquer Iraq, Turkey. We will get to Iran, too.

If you catch Obama on the street and you know that he does not follow the seven laws, etc.

Why bother? If he's Republican, it's already a done deal.

And they Gerry-mandered the House for at least a decade.

See-they can't tolerate regulating their killing sprees of live people, but have removed abortion as a choice for women.

And they brag that they represent freedom. Little Marco gets rich and powerful off locking people up......that's not freedom, and he needs a spanking.

Some of us have been banned for LIFE from forums. while the homophobes, Xenophobes, Islamophobes, Liberal-haters and Obama demonizers get free reign.

231 new abortion restrictions have passed since 2010 by the Tea Party Republicans.

How many new gun restrictions by the Tyrant Obama?

Well, he tried. In 2013, he proprosed

1. Close background check loop-holes

2. Ban assault weapons and high capacity magazines

3. Make schools safer

4. Increase access to mental health services

Guess how many new Federal regs we got from that?

ZERO

So, you see--the ones taking away rights are the tea baggers in Congress.

Rights that took 200 years to fight for: the right for women to control their own lives

Gone, in 5 lousy years.

So next time some gun lover cries about his/her freedoms....remind them that their right to kill is still intact.

But abortion is for all intents and purposes a distant memory, as if the long struggle never happened.

And if they dare say it's about religion, call them out on that piece of propaganda

They care less for a living child than a viable mass of fetal tissue cells!

Oh, and God slaughters babies too......15-20% of all pregnancies end in spontaneous abortion.

Only half ever make it to fetus status.

God can do it, women can't......even tho God gave it to women to have that ability.

They are blaspheming the plan and order of God--making Mortals god instead

Ummm, does anyone know this is America? You can't discriminate on basis of religion.

I'm of Swedish, Lithuanian heritage. And I care about America, not some foreign government.

I care about human rights, not Biblical prophecy.

And HP has no right using my stance against Israel as a means of discriminating!

I lurked in forums long before commenting. An employee named Jason said the only way you can get a ban is if you personally attack someone.

Then they add hi-jacking, bickering....

But there is a person here who adds anti Obama, Hillary , Muslim comments to ANY thread, no matter what the topic......does no one notice?

Or is it allowed, because she is pro Israel right wing?

Is HP owned by Right-Wing Israeli-Firsters? One of the donors? Conservative Christian?

In either case---Your success here is determined by a lot of factors....one of which THEY STATE is "engagement"

So--when they ban you from engagement, they are affecting your success.

And if they ban you based on discrimination, that is against the law!

"As of December 2013, ALEC had more than 85 members of Congress and 14 sitting or former governors who were considered "alumni". The majority of ALEC's legislative members belong to the Republican Party."

Just heard on the radio that my small little town a business was held up last night at gunpoint.

Now, he could have used a knife, a bat, a broken bottle, frying pan, nail file, etc...

But they chose a gun. Know why

Its so much more effective isnt it?

And creates terror in the mind, doesnt it?

Now, the lame-brains will say "biz owners better get guns....all of town better get guns"

Just give me a break! This chick call people who will vote for Hillary "Morons", then demands that people treat her with respect. Shows a gun just fired, smoke coming out of it and calls it aroma therapy...that's real creepy. Her partner-in-crime demeans a liberal, but ignores her friend's constant hatred directed at of Obama, Muslims and Hillary.

Abortion--legal under constitution: Everywhere R's in charge: making it impossible to get

Voting: 16 R states making it harder to vote

Elected officials respecting the commander in chief: GONE

and NOW: changing the rules and not allowing sitting prez to nominate new SCJ, even tho it's his constitutional duty

These creeps are making the rules as they go--their rules for themselves. Constitution be d'med

What did I tell you? The rabid right is out in full with their extreme, insulting views. And no chance of them being banned, ever. This is discrimination at its finest, and against the law.

If they as members can voice their views, none others should be censored out. Their views are offensive and derogatory to myself, as a member of HP. Just because I don't have a clique, do i have less rights?

Imagine it goes on 20 hrs a day. Dem bashing, liberal bashing. Women bashing, black bashing. It's all part of the vast right wing conspiracy: control the media.

It's why Reagan got rid of fairness doctrine.

They forget the airwaves are public. All povs should be heard. By constitution! But what has happened, is right wing bigwigs have bought up all the stations, and since the Fairness Doctrine is no longer law, have no compulsion to use the public airwaves for public use, but use it for their own private agenda.

It's another example of the theft from the people that has gone on here.

I really challenge you to do this one day: listen to talk radio. All day. See how you feel about Democrats, women, blacks, Hispanics at the end of the day. I bet you start to hate them, or at least think what the hell is wrong with them. And there is no rebuttal. No views from the Dems, women and minorities they are bashing. No opportunity for their voices to be heard.

Imagine this goes on day after day, 20 hrs of it....

It's quite the psy-op. And quite devious. And hugely unAmerican.

And hubpages plays that game too.

Just yesterday, the right wing clique voted out 2 answers. One was pro Obama, the other pro Clinton.

So, you don't see it. Poof, gone.

Psy-op. Only their voices heard. By design.

Not only is it unAmerican, but it's cowardly. No wonder they're the party of chicken-hawks.

Own your body, own your mind.

Scary.

Randall Terry, Bill Oreilly, conservative chistians.

Not to mention Focus on Family, Family Research Group, conservative Christian groups who work to silence opposing voices from public domain.

Don't protest, vote...how come no one told the Tea Party that?

Ooooh, it was so cool then, huh?

Why is it things conservatives do are fine, but when liberals do it, becomes illegal activity?

Trump is pressing charges on protestors. Any charges on you, Mr? For inciting violence against Americans?

Oh noooooo. Not Mr Punch em in the face. He's innocent.

So let me get this right...

If Obama had told people to punch Tea Party protestors, it would have been fine. It wouldn't have ended his presidential campaign, and Sarah Palin would be calling the Tea Party petty punk-*ss little thugs?

"It's not a conspiracy, it's a plan"--Warren Ballentine

Congressman Steve Israel is leaving. Asked what can stop this partisan bickering. His answer, Stop the partisan redistricting. Case in point: 2010, Repubs win House, redistrict it so they have it for next decade to come. Tom Delay went to jail for it,crying out loud.

They want house, senate, presidency and supreme court.

By hook or by crook.

This is the plan, and dems know it.

Roe v Wade overturned, and Bush tax cuts made permanent.

Repeal ACA, repeal Iran nuclear deal.

War, low wages, womens choices belong to the church/state, and no taxes for the biz and wealthy class.

What does that look like to you? America? Not my America, thats for dam sure.

It's a plan, and we have to stop it. By hook or by crook!

It's war, man, it's war!!

Watching Sanders rally. He is being disengenous. He has a super PAC that took in more money than Hillary and Omalley combined.

He spent half his time bashing hillary.

Brings up her wall Street speeches..

Let's see your tax returns Bernie. Some shady sh*t in there.

Listening to young people....except those who might support hillary....those are just corporate shills.

I hope Hillary doesn't go that way, but inevitably, she has to fight back.

I'm witness.

Watched her rally. She did not spend 1/2 her time bashing him.

Btw, public colleges were ALWAYS tuition free. 40 yrs of Reagonomics ruined it, it's not a new idea.

Honestly, I don't think Sanders and Trump get it.

You don't just use a party for votes. A party is an institution. It has rules, traditions, and a party platform.

You don't just say, hey I'm getting a lot of votes, give me the delegates.

Delegates work for the parties, not the individuals.

For instance, a portion of Clinton's campaign funds go to other democrats running in other elections, as a way to help the party as a whole. Sanders is having none of that.

He's running for himself alone.

Same as Trump.

Which is why they should have had the courage to run Independent, or something else.

Instead, both of them use the clout and leverage of the big parties while insulting and distancing themselves from it. It's really pretty foul and self-serving.

Delegates work for the party, not the individual.

And I am really insulted that Sanders comes around bashing the Democratic candidate as he uses the clout and Media of it.

If he wins, will he respect democrats?

I think we can see the answer already.

He is turning me off big time.

ANY way you wanna' slice it abortion is the taking innocent human-life for selfsh reasons.

ANY woman who has had an abortion spends the rest of her life trying to justify it.

Jesus forgives and makes all things new if you but ask.


lovemychris profile image

lovemychris 7 months ago from Cape Cod, USA Author

That is just baloney. Women are made to feel guilty by the patriarchal society. Any country that is not ruled by religion has abortion as a normal medical procedure. Its only religious control that makes it a problem.

And it's the height of selfishness to have a child you cant afford. Do you know what kind of life that is?

And what kind of help can a woman expect from this country that so demonizes her for having sex?

Guess what? It really depends on where you live. Good Christian republicans don't seem to want to help a girl once she's carried that fetus to term.

And just btw, it's insulting beyond belief that this is even a public issue. You people are demanding that total strangers follow your decree. Their lives are not yours, I wonder if you get that?

Maybe you could work for more social, survival, public school issues to have some money spent on them. Or work to end these senseless gun shootings going on every day of the week. Why don't more people do that, then work to criminalize women and doctors?

As far as Jesus goes...the rest of that admonition is go and sin no more.

That's the part that doesn't seem to get remembered and followed.

Robert Dear thinks he will be praised by fetuses in heaven.

What about the real live people he killed here?

Every single woman or girl who has an abortion is someone's baby! Their lives matter, too!

Their new meme mentioning hillarys coat....

She is rich, but she pays her taxes. She doesn't hide her money, or work hard not to pay.

She believes in America more than hoarding wealth.

It's just like them anyway, to pick on a coat, while supporting a guy with gold plated toilets.

Whom does all ge can to not pay his taxes to the United States of America.

You people have strange values.....a woman is paid by the state to stay home and take care of her mother, you have no problem with it. But a woman who's paid by the state to stay home and take care of her baby is a welfare bum.

It's the sex part isn't it? Ya just can't stand that someone had sex and made a baby.

Otherwise you'd call the woman paid to stay home with mom a welfare bum too.

Which, in actuality she is.

Once again, giving moral equivalency to trump and clinton is yet more propaganda. Just like gvt was jes fine til obama came along.
