"In this world of sin and sorrow there is always something to be thankful for; as for me, I rejoice that I am not a Republican." - H. L. Mencken
That's all folks!
Which cartoon character best represents today's Republican?
**Read with Jaws music in mind**
Every day they get more and more crazy. Everyday I shake my head in disbelief and incredulity at something they say. Just when you think they have gone over the line, the line moves five more feet to the right. It's a mass hysteria the likes of which we haven't seen since Orson Wells played his fake Martian attack scenario on the radio.
Yes my friends , its' the attack of the Republicans! Ahhhhhhhhhh!
I try to avoid them...like the plague. I try to ignore them....like pesky fruit flies. Yet in ever increasing hysteria...THERE THEY ARE!
Here's this morning's "catch word" of demonization to be used by every lemming following at the trough of lunacy: Collectivism. Yes, collectivism. Signifying communism, socialism, Marxism, Hitler and Stalin ....all those boogey words that come to mind with that one. Yes, you know--kind of like what our country was founded on...One for all and all for one. Give me you tired, your poor, your huddled masses....and what? Demonize them! Smear the living daylights out of them. Lie about them. pssssttt, listen THEY don't care about America...they want your mother to DIE. That president isn't a citizen, he's a Muslim and a terrorist. I mean, come on...just think about it. Does he LOOK like a president?
You get my drift here? And the sad part is, these people who are the mouthpieces for this organization cannot be for real. It must be a CIA psy-ops Operation Mockingbird project to help the Insurance industry. It's GOT to be. Ooooo, Conspiracy! That's right, conspiracy. Because no one in their right MIND could be so twisted.
Listen up: Social Security is collectivism. The military is collectivism. Banking is collectivism. The public school system is collectivism. Anything we do as a people for the people as a whole is collectivism. Is it not?
So what is the problem? Government takeover...are you kidding me? It's only government trying to rail in the greedy money whores known as the Insurance Industry. Government trying to insure that people don't have to die to satisfy a bottom line. Death Panels? Yeah--we have them. It's the bean counter brigades over at ___, __, ___fill in the blank with any Insurance company name.
It's been a real nice ride these people have had under the guise of "freedom", "free-enterprise". At the expense of the American citizen. And it blows my mind that people actually fall for the garbage being spewed out as the American Way. Is anyone else embarrased by the fact that every other country seems to manage to have healthcare for their citizens? And for free??? And we, who trumpet our richness and goodness, are letting people die to satisfy a bottom line. Tell me--when is it going to be enough money? 1 million a year salary is not enough for a ceo? NO?
Healthcare should not be for sale.
Housing should not be for profit.
Heat and food should not be a luxury!
We have been overtaken by Robber Barons, and they have swayed our mentality in their favor. We have fallen for a mantra which goes against our own stated values which are written at the base of the Statue of Liberty. It is a take-over all right...by the monied interests. And they sell it as freedom, but it is debt slavery.
One last note: Yesterday, I heard the next phase of their plan being unveiled. A conservative talk-show host said this, "We must put Impeachment in the air. We don't have the votes for it now, but we will come November. Once we win over the Congress, we must Impeach him and get him out!"
If Obama is gone and they can blame him for everything...which they do already, imagine the power they will have then! It will be a money-grubbing free-for-all the likes of which you have never seen. And they will say "You wanted this!" "You gave it to us!" And it would be true....IF it were to happen. But it is NOT going to happen. These operators are going to burn out from their own demented behavior. Eventually their programming will run out, and they will sputter off and fade away...empty shells of hatred, drooling out the last guffaws of their propaganda...."he hates America"....."he wants you to die"...."he's a terrorist"....."I'm fading"..."I'm fading".....
Kind of like the Wicked Witch in the Wizard of Oz :)
And that is the day I anticipate with glee!
by Emma Lazarus (1849-1887)
“Not like the brazen giant of Greek fame…”
Not like the brazen giant of Greek fame,
With conquering limbs astride from land to land;
Here at our sea-washed, sunset gates shall stand
A mighty woman with a torch, whose flame
Is the imprisoned lightning, and her name
Mother of Exiles. From her beacon-hand
Glows world-wide welcome; her mild eyes command
The air-bridged harbor that twin cities frame.
“Keep, ancient lands, your storied pomp!” cries she
with silent lips. “Give me your tired, your poor,
Your huddled masses yearning to breathe free,
The wretched refuse of your teeming shore.
Send these, the homeless, tempest-tost to me,
I lift my lamp beside the golden door!”
Celebrated poet and humanitarian activist
You don't say.....
Campaign finance group says McConnell has cashed in by blocking bills
You had to know....
"Cons are so dramatic! Always saving the country, watering the tree of liberty w their blood. Please. You're arguing for low taxes on rich"
The right wing is abuzz with a question they find delicious: Why is my paycheck less this week?
The simple answer for most taxpayers that that Republicans found a tax cut that wasn’t worth fighting for — yours.
