JUST SAY NO
The symbolism of the limp sword aside, the GOP in the guise of a battle ready crusader is perfect. They attack everything the President proposes and they preferred killing the background checks bill rather than give Obama a political victory. They fight gay rights and immigration and unions, and voter rights and clean air and clean water, and that’s just for starters.
While they excel at accusations, time and time again republicans have shown they just can’t govern. Ronnie "Cut And Run" Reagan ran up a massive budget deficit and George W invaded the wrong country while running up an even bigger deficit than old 'C & R."
Clinton cut the deficit. Under Obama we've seen the biggest deficit reduction in over 60 years.The stock market is up, unemployment is coming down, and the housing market is beginning to bounce back. Republicans aren't trying to create big deficits, but it’s the price they are willing to make YOU PAY to give tax breaks to rich people.
Dick Cheney often quipped, 'Deficits don't matter.'
He was talking about a REPUBLICAN President.
TEA BAGGER AMNESIA
Obama "kind of likes the idea of ordering troops into battle."
You know, because Bush invaded the wrong country? And we're winding another Bush excursion into Afghanistan.
Except for those I guess.
WHAT’S A 501C4?
The IRS defines these groups as ‘civic leagues, social welfare organizations, and local associations of employees. Net earnings have to go to charitable, educational, or recreational activities. They may participate in political activity but their primary purpose must not be supporting particular candidates or contributing to their campaign.
The real scandal is how some of these tea bagger groups achieved their tax-exempt status. Good grief.
One of these tea bagger groups claims their purpose in life is to, “…Build on the foundation of success we used to elect more governors, grab more seats in the House of Representatives and force the Washington establishment to respect the demands of ‘We The People.’”
Sound like a charitable group?
I’m sure there are left-leaning organizations who shouldn’t operate as a 501C4 either, so let’s change the law. Donor lists should not be confidential.
You know the expression, ‘Just because I’m paranoid doesn’t mean someone isn’t out to get me?’
Sometimes you’re just paranoid, but all 501C4 organizations should be reviewed and their tax status adjusted accordingly.
THINK OF SYRIA AS A GATEWAY DRUG
Arming Syrian rebels is a bad idea. Iranian forces are fighting along side the Syrian Army. Iran is highly motivated to keep Assad in power and have more to lose if his reign collapses.
Nitwits like McCain (Bomb bomb bomb, bomb bomb Iran) and Graham have been itching for an Iran war for years, and here’s the perfect opportunity to get the ball rolling.
Arming the rebels is step number one. How long before we 'realize' the weapons we sent were insufficient and we need to send more? Next time why not include some military advisors? And a Syrian no-fly zone? What the heck, why not let a few predator drones pitch in?
Does anyone know exactly who the rebels are? Are we giving guns to al-Queda? Hamas?
What's the worse that could happen?
IT'S PUBLIC vs PRIVATE
Everyone seems to be shocked, SHOCKED, to 'discover' the government engaged in surveillance and data mining, but the boys and girls at the NSA are lightyears behind Google, Facebook, Yahoo, and Amazon.
I'm not thrilled with the way the 4th Amendment has been shredded over the past seven years, but the NSA was able to stop a plot to place 12 separate bombs on NYC subway cars. We've known all along that the Patriot act allows the government access to our phone calls, emails, and internet. Snowden just detailed some sensitive information for the benefit of nut jobs who rejoice in killing Americans.
I get a kick out of the nitwit brigade complaining that 1) NSA failed to stop the Boston bombing and 2) government has gone too far in violating our privacy.
COMPARE APPLES TO APPLES
Mitt Romney claimed during his campaign that the Obama White House pays women less than men. So you know that's a lie. Not sure Mittens said one true thing during his entire run, especially during the primaries when he carpet bombed his opponents with negative TV ads. He even claimed his first name is 'Mitt' when we all know it's Willard.
Anyone trying to recycle Romney talking points is either an idiot or a lazy fool.
Anyway, last October Politifact looked into his silly claim and acknowledged that there is an overall pay gap between men and women. But a look inside the numbers reveal a different picture.
"When women do the same job as men (in Obama's White House), the pay gap narrows quite a bit. And in fact, this is exactly what happens when you look deeper into the White House data. Even when you just control for one factor -- people who have the same job title -- the gap narrows significantly.
We found 36 titles for full employees held by more than one person, including at least one man and woman. Of these 36 job categories, there was no difference in pay between men and women in 22 job categories, affecting 121 employees. In another six categories affecting 29 employees, the highest earner in the category was a woman who out-earned at least one man."
Tea baggers are still making up crap to attack the President. What's the matter? Americans don't wants to hear about how lowering taxes on rich people and increasing the defense budget will balance the federal budget?
AMERICA BE DAMNED!
Republicans only care about one thing: opposing the President. They voted down the background check bill because they didn't want to give Obama a political victory. America be damned.
It's okay for terrorists and violent criminals and child molesters and the criminally insane to waltz into a gun show - any gun show - and walk out with a small arsenal. America be damned.
It's okay that 90% of voters wanted background checks. America be damned.
The new republican bumper sticker:
DO YOU REALLY WANT A BIBLE QUOTE-OFF?
The Bible is a spiritual smorgasbord. Everyone picks what they like and ignores the rest. There are about 300 different Christian faiths in America and each offer a version geared to attract a big audience.
Do you believe in reincarnation? Do you believe your relatives are waiting for you right now in heaven? Do you believe in ghosts? Do you ever work on the Sabbath?
Leave the Bible out of it. If you think the morning after pill is evil, what do you think of birth control? What about contraception?
LMAO at everyone who believes they know God's will.
BEWARE REPUBLICAN VALUES
Workers making $3 per day? Republicans like.
Products making owners filthy rich? Republicans like.
Commercial property damage? Republicans like a bailout, please.
A few hundred workers killed on the job?
That's what republicans call the price of doing business.
GIVE IT UP
Bush invaded the wrong country, had over 4,000 of our bravest die for nothing, and bankrupt our nation.
Clinton got caught making booty calls.
Apples and hand grenades.
