If you're not Rich Republicans Loathe you and want you to Die

"...being a liberal is the best thing on earth you can be. You are welcoming to everyone when you're a liberal. You do not have a small mind." ~ Lauren Bacall
However, unless you have a giant off shore bank account the Republican Party hates you and wants you to die. Here are a typical pair of Republican constituents: Charles and Samuel Wyly, who along with their wives, have donated $2.5 million to more than 200 Republican candidates and committees over the past 20 years, including over $1.3 million to the Republican National Committee. And guess what??? The two have been charged by the Securities and Exchange Commission with orchestrating a massive securities fraud scheme that netted them $550 million. Who would have thought Rich criminals would steal millions and then use those purloined riches to support Republicans??

And after Billionaire Criminals have purchased Republican politicians what do they do with that power? Well, that's the real question isn't it.

As we have seen over and over when Republicans are placed in control of Government they actively obstruct regulations and enforcement on Big Business. And the results are devastating. Not just mega murderous disasters at the Upper Big Branch Mine and the 2005 Texas City BP Oil Refinery Explosion or the near-destruction of the Gulf but also incidents such as the TVA Kingston Fossil Plant coal ash spill and TVA Widows Creek coal waste spill, which released over 1 billion gallons of toxic coal sludge into the Watts Bar Lake and the Emory River and 10,000 gallons of toxic gypsum material into Widows Creek, respectively [SourceWatch].

These are just a couple of the most egregious violations. Republicans actively tell Wealthy Business Owners to cut corners, eliminate safety and squeeze every bloody dollar from the lives of their workers they can.

But for Republicans it's not enough they kill Miners, Oil Rig Workers and other Americans they have to emotionally and ideologically stunt them as well.

So, inhuman scum merchants like Don Blakenship, Charles G. Koch and David H. Koch also use their stolen blood-soaked Millions to push lies and retard the intelligence of their blinkered conservative servants. Blakenship and the Koch Brothers are famous for pushing the global warming is a fraud meme, which is understandable because they make their money by raping the earth and destroying eco-systems. So, any legislation that would hurt their bank accounts must be stopped. As everyone knows Republicans and Conservatives place their Money above the Life and Health of every living thing on the planet.

Conservatives value Property over People. And every Republican, having been bought and paid for, then turns around and votes to ensure the rest of the American People are oppressed or killed and kept under the lash of Wage Slavery.

The Republican Party wants to return the World to a state of Feudal Dictatorship in which Racist Conservatives lynch and enslave society for the amusement of fat-faced, flabby-assed, cowards.

But, while Republicans bandy about millions and oversee the transfer of Trillions of Dollars of the world's wealth to their Plutocratic Oppressor Overlord Class they continue to stoke fears of ethnic and class by invoking "Unmarried Mothers" and Welfare Abuse.

"All welfare goes to unmarried moms," says the evil Phyliss Schlafly, whose anti-human violently stupid ideology birthed Michele Bachmann and Sarah Palin.

What a load of manure. All the money ever spent to alleviate the Iron Heel of Republican Oppression doesn't add up to the money purposefully lost and stolen in Iraq during the Bush Cheney Regime. Republicans are scum who make it their mission to kill and oppress everyone.

Mark Kirk embodies the best Republican Trait

I don't ask for much, i only want your trust,
And you know it don't come easy.
~ George Harrison and Ringo Starr, It Don't Come Easy
He's a Liar. A Mark Kirk press conference goes thusly, "Lie, lie, lie, war hero lie, lie, lie, lie, child care lie, lie, lie, lie, war hero lie, lie, lie, lie, lie, lie, teaching lie, lie, lie, lie, lie, lie, lie, lie, lie, lie, lie, lie, lie, lie, BIG FINISH... LIE."

After the most egregious repeated lying about his Military service Kirk's latest apparent imbroglio concerns a story of Kirk almost drowning in Lake Michigan 34 years ago after his boat capsized. Kirk as a classic Republican must embellish and lie about the incident, he can't help himself he's a Republican and therefore a Liar.

But, while Mark Kirk, the Stolen Valor Champion uses classic Republican aesthetics Sharron Angle is a beyond Dada post modern Artist! She has deconstructed the No Comment Interview into it's base components by immediately tucking tail, taking no questions and running away.

The next two years are going to be hellish for the American People; Republicans have clearly stated their goals and intentions upon regaining power; The destruction of Social Security, the elimination of basic healthcare for the poor, the theft and transfer of billions to UBS and Cayman Accounts, the despoliation of the environment, the ramping up of Off-Shore and ANWR Drilling, the expansion of Overseas Wars and murder of American Servicemen, the lynching and murder of President Obama and the utter destruction of the Middle Class and reduction of the American People to Penury and Wage Slavery.

Andrew Bigotbart errr... Breitbart. Racist. Liar. Conservative...

If one isn't honest well then... What's the point? ~ Grung_e_Gene

There is no reason in 21st century America on an issue that is not a black or white or a civil rights issue to have a bloc of black people walk slowly through a mostly white crowd... Andrew Bigotbart wants certain congressmen to know their place.

Go away on vacation and miss a lot of the same Conservative bull shit. Andrew Breitbart famous for aiding and abetting convicted criminal James O'Keefe in the completely false and racially motivated attack on ACORN via highly edited video has yet again concocted a racist video fabrication. Breitbart's victim this time is Shirley Sherrod, unsurprisingly an elderly black woman, Breitbart's favorite target.

Just before I left for a vacation I posted a fabricated quote falsely attributed to Sean Hannity. I failed to do due diligence in confirming it's accuracy and went with the malicious lie because it confirmed my pre-conceived notions about Hannity. But what I did not do was try and justify my actions by claiming since my enemy Sean Hannity is a known liar and chicken hawk coward who endorses and support racism, the destruction of the American Middle Class and War Cimes lies should be told about him.

I immediately removed it upon learning it was a slander. But Andrew Breitbart is a common criminal and liar, i.e. a Conservative. And he has done what all Conservative liars do when caught, he has sought to rationalize and justify his lies; including, and this is the worst part, an outright bigoted lie he has created.

Andrew Breitbart is not alone in justifying his evil racist actions. Fox and Friends, Bill O'Reilly, Dana Perino, Laura Ingraham, Glenn Beck, Ann "It's a Set-Up" Coulter and Sean Hannity all rationalize their parts in Breitbart's racist lies because they are ALL racists and hypocrites. Rachel Maddow had an excellent segment highlighting the Conservative Media, Republican Party and Fox News rush to condemn Shirley Sherrod because it fits their racist narrative.

Conservatives feel no compunction about lying. Conservatives feel zero chagrin at complete false fabrication. Conservatives feel no remorse at slandering President Obama daily.

Conservatives are racists. Bigotry has been a staple of the Republican Party for years but the conservative movement, their terror arm the wholly racist Teabaggers have embraced racism and the threat of the the scary black person fully since Obama's landslide victory. Fox News is the most egregious perpetrator as their every program looks like deleted scenes from Birth of a Nation when their wide-eyed, frosted tipped blondes warn about Obama's "Terrorist Fist Jab" or their Grand Dragon KKK Leader Glenn Beck warns his racist Konservative Klan that "This president I think has exposed himself over and over again as a guy who has a deep-seated hatred for white people or the white culture".

And the KKKonservative echo chamber and blog-o-sphere feels no shame in spreading lies and race baiting slander because all the right cares about is winning elections. The Republican Party don't give a shit about America what they care about is regaining power in Washington to ram through legislation to serve and protect their Masters, the Plutocrats who run this nation and want to destroy the middle class and return the American People to a status of complaint Wage Slave.

Every KKKonservative on Fox News is a Lying Bloated Disgusting Racist

The Advocates of Torture

"Torture has never been a reliable means of extracting information. It is ultimately self-defeating as a means of control. One wonders it is still practiced." ~ Jean Luc Picard.

"We also have to work, though, sort of the dark side, if you will. ~ Dick Cheney.

“The gloves are coming off gentlemen regarding these detainees, [redacted] has made clear it wants these individuals broken,” MI ALWAYS OUT IN FRONT, (08/14/2003)

Americans have known for a century, since the Philippine Insurrection, that Torture is wrong. That was until 2001 and the Bush/Cheney Regime. A Harvard Student Research Paper found that when Americans learned of the Abu Gharib scandal suddenly Bush Torture Lawyers began to push the notion of "Harsh" or "Enhanced Interrogation" methods to their media contacts and those stories began to equivocate and pretend as though there was a hotly contested debate about what is and what isn't Torture.

The reason is simple, Dick Cheney said as much right after 9/11, American Policy was Torture. And who would be tortured? Anyone. Everyone. Innocence and Guilt were non-factors. Bush and Cheney wanted Torture.

Whole sections of the Executive Branch were devoted to making Torture Official US Policy, the Justice Department was co-opted into crafting "legal" arguments for the efficacy of Torture and the rescinding of the "quaint" Geneva Conventions, White House officials made repeated Sunday Talk Show appearances hinting at the dozens of plots stopped by Torture, Jack Bauer would save Fox America through Torture. Torture was the Universal Cure-all of the Bush White House.

George Bush, Dick Cheney, Donald Rumsfeld, John Yoo, Alberto Gonzales, David Addington, Ari Fleischer, Liz Cheney, Monica Goodling, Jay Bybee are war criminals. And they are worst of sort of war criminals for they, safely ensconced in air-conditioned offices, far from the battlefield, coldly crafted Torture memos and policies. Clear intent not influenced by the heat of the moment.

Yet how could it be that a section of the American people not only defend the Bush Regime War Criminals but defend the use of Torture? Well, the Media stopped calling it Torture. And magically we have two sides of the Torture issue.

And worst of all everyone knows that Torture is not useful in gaining information and gaining information through coercion is not only futile but criminal.
The clearest example of an interrogation practice that will void a confession is the infliction of physical force or pain upon the person under interrogation, because it is an incontestable fact that harm of this nature may produce a confession of guilt from an innocent person. This is also true as regards indirect physical harm - for instance, an unduly prolonged continuous interrogation, especially by two or more interrogators working in relays or the deprivation of food, water, or access to toilet facilities for an unreasonable period of time. A threat of physical harm may have a similar effect --- the extraction of confession from innocent persons. ~ Fred E. Inbau
Illinois Law- (720 ILCS 5/12‑7) Compelling confession or information by force or threat.
(a) A person who, with intent to obtain a confession, statement or information regarding any offense, knowingly inflicts or threatens imminent bodily harm upon the person threatened or upon any other person commits the offense of compelling a confession or information by force or threat.

(b) Sentence. Compelling a confession or information is a: (1) Class 4 felony if the defendant threatens imminent bodily harm to obtain a confession, statement, or information but does not inflict bodily harm on the victim, (2) Class 3 felony if the defendant inflicts bodily harm on the victim to obtain a confession, statement, or information, and (3) Class 2 felony if the defendant inflicts great bodily harm to obtain a confession, statement, or information.

Here is the strangest dissonance from the Pro-Human Pain and Suffering Right Wing: The harsh interrogation methods we used are so wimpy that slapping oneself on air is the equivalent. However, they are so awesome and useful that if need be we can use them and break someone in 35 seconds to save us from the Right Wing Extremist Bogus Ticking Time Bomb Scenario.

So it's both Torture and Not Torture.

Remember the film Stalag 17? One of the techniques the Nazis use is Sleep Deprivation. Watch the scene. In it Von Scherbach also declares Lieutenant Dunbar is not a prisoner of war. Strange how much Ari "Sleep Deprivation, I have no Problem with" Fleischer resembles Von Scherbach and not Otto Preminger.

Delving Into the Water Cure:
Paul Kramer has a detailed expose for The New Yorker on it's use 100 years ago: Many Americans were puzzled by the news, in 1902, that United States soldiers were torturing Filipinos with water. The United States, throughout its emergence as a world power, had spoken the language of liberation, rescue, and freedom.

Time to Declare Independence

From the Military-Industrial-Complex, which is not only bankrupting the Nation it demands Americans sacrifice themselves.

Sometimes my epigrams come a little too soon. Case in point, no sooner than I referenced the Loud Mouthed Cowardly War Proponents propensity to blather about the necessity of sacrificing someone else's life in war than did Michael Steele comment about the idiocy and uselessness of the "War" in Afghanistan. The comments received national media attention and the War Mongering Neo-Cons and Chicken Hawk Republicans immediately responded about the necessity of sacrificing more Americans' lives.

Liz Cheney, Bill Kristol, and Karl Rove, those three incomparable assholes, stepped forward first demanding Steele withdraw his comments and resign. The Republicans, led by John McCain and Sarah Palin, then followed and jumped at the chance to proclaim their support for Never-Ending-War. Tom Cole and Jim DeMint called on Steele to apologize and resign. Cole and DeMint are real republican chicken hawks they love war now but sure couldn't be bothered to serve in Vietnam when they were young men. You see it is their job to convince the American People that Endless War is good and necessary. A War which they know they and their families will never have to sacrifice anything for...

Republicans support War because they don't serve in the military. They won't have to shit in a hole in the desert. They won't have to go 7 weeks without a real shower. They won't have put rounds down range at another human being.

Now, of course, I believe from the total context of Steele's quote, as 'Obama's War of Choice', Steele was trying to use the increase in American deaths as a political tool against President Obama. But, if there's one thing the Republicans want to own it's the Wars. Because Republicans know they won't be touched by those wars.

The Wars begun by Bush and Cheney with the lockstep support of the Republican Party were for one reason; A Two-fold transfer of Wealth. There are too many Trillions of dollars to be taken from struggling American families and too much land and resources to be stolen from innocent people overseas by sending Americans there to kill the brown peoples.

If Obama does begin the drawdown it will mark a clear difference in 2012 for the American people. If he doesn't...

Republicans Piss On Veterans

You can always hear the people who are willing to sacrifice somebody else's life. They're plenty loud and they talk all the time. ~ Dalton Trumbo
Senate Republicans object to a bill to aid homeless veterans. They can't find the money for it. What republicans can find, time and time again, is a way to fuck over anyone who's poor, homeless or wounded in service to the Wealthy. It's the only "Service" they respect. And in line with standard Republican thinking; If you're poor, homeless or wounded it is of your own choosing/fault.

Republicans are grave robbers and scum they would rather veterans die so they can co-opt their lives and place conservative talking points into the mouths of the dead.
NeoCon Frank Gaffney: "It is regrettable that they had to die, but I believe they did have to die."
And if the dead veteran turns out to be an anti-war atheist who believes in country over conservatism they can merely echo Sean Hannity and Ann Coulter and say, "I don't believe it".

The Republican Party is filled with Liars, Chicken Hawks and Cowards. I highlighted the 2010 CPAC meeting in February. And Not One! Not one of the leading voices in Modern Conservatism ever served in uniform! Yet here they are using the troops and veterans to advance Republican Party interests. Republicans are a fucking disgrace.
