Street Plowing is Socialism!

Never miss a chance to party with the rich
'cause the rich know how to scratch that party itch.
For the rich don't care how much it costs
'cause a dollar saved is a dollar lost
when it's coming faster than you could ever spend it. ~ Party With The Rich, The Grandsons
Back in the Blizzard of '79, during the interim non-Daley Chicago Mayoral ship, Jane Bryne (a Daley acolyte) won election precisely because of the inadequate response to the Snow accumulation. This is an affront to God and America! Snow removal is anathema, if he didn't want it to snow he would have made Earth into Venus and then we'd all be living in the lake of fire!

Seriously, I wish the Tea Party would stage rallies in front of those giant Chicago public works lots housing those bastions of Socialism the snow plow/salt spreader! Why don't they stand and tell people if they want their streets and sidewalks clear they should do it themselves?

We all know the answer is because the Tea Party is a sham and the ignorant rabid rightwing which screams Socialism has no idea what that term means.

The Tea Party phenomenon is already done. They are quietly and quickly being subsumed into the Republican Party. Already the Tea Party Representatives are stealing Federal funds, most Tea Party and Republicans represent US states which get more money back from the Federal Government than they pay in taxes, and the same old GOP establishment lobbyists have hooked and ensnared the Teabaggers.

We have a few private roads in my town. This last weekend I had to respond to alarms and a Domestic Battery at homes (McMansions) on that road. Going there was horrid as my Crown Vic slid and fishtailed all over the winding inclined street. The Rich bastards who live off that road don't hire a private snow plow. I have no idea why. Perhaps, like the Tea Party they come to expect certain Government functions to happen without realizing from whence comes the funding.

Deceptive Practices

No One represents the American People. We've been sold into Wage Slavery and Serfdom to the Banking interests, by their wholly owned bureaucrats and thugs in the Republican Party and the deluded and corrupted portions of the Democratic Party.

"In Washington, the view is that the banks are to be regulated, and my view is that Washington and the regulators are there to serve the banks,” Congressman Spencer Bachus, Republican Alabama.
What are you doing Alabama?
You got the rest of the union
to help you along
What's going wrong?~ Neil Young, Alabama
At a time of 10% unemployment, pay freezes for middle class federal workers, the planned for destruction of social security and unemployment coverage, every breaking news story is of unprecedented record profits for Wall Street; Wall Street Sees Record Revenue in Recovery From Bailout.

What benefit does Wall Street provide to the American people? They no longer loan money to emerging small businesses, they do not seek to find rivals to established corporate behemoths, they no longer regulate themselves, they increasing create more and more byzantine "products" which are divorced from an actual commodity or crafted item. Or as the NewYorker asked; What Good is Wall Street?
Since 1980, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, the number of people employed in finance, broadly defined, has shot up from roughly five million to more than seven and a half million. During the same period, the profitability of the financial sector has increased greatly relative to other industries. Think of all the profits produced by businesses operating in the U.S. as a cake. Twenty-five years ago, the slice taken by financial firms was about a seventh of the whole. Last year, it was more than a quarter. (In 2006, at the peak of the boom, it was about a third.) In other words, during a period in which American companies have created iPhones, Home Depot, and Lipitor, the best place to work has been in an industry that doesn’t design, build, or sell a single tangible thing.
And when trouble came and the economy was faced with a meltdown caused by the rampant malfeasance of Wall Street? Those selfsame people who create nothing, those who do nothing but play fancy computer games of transferring little 1s and 0s from one ledger to another, were saved on the backs of the workers. And since then? Why they've created no new jobs, they've tightened loans, they've foreclosed homes, they've sought to destroy healthcare, GM and the UAW and anything which represents a protection to the Middle Class and Poor in America.

And why do they get away with it? Apparently because of the Grand Scale of their Theft. I've tracked down and caught any number of thieves in my capacity as a police officer. The latest was a man who attempted to pass off false coupons he created himself for a pack of Marlboro's. It's a Deceptive Practice. He's poor and will undoubtedly get a conviction for a Class A Misdemeanor for trying to pass off the worthless paper.

But, what does Wall Street get for passing off Trillions in worthless paper again and again and again? They get the full faith and force of the Federal Government every time. Welcome to Serfdom.

A Secretive Banking Elite Rules Trading in Derivatives [The New York Times]

How Wall Street Creates Socialists - E.J. Dionne And from the article, The *Money* Shot:
“Well,” Fabrice “Fabulous Fab” Tourre sent to his girlfriend, “what if we created a ‘thing’, which has no purpose, which is absolutely conceptual and highly theoretical and which nobody knows how to price?”

Perhaps Fab once read the Karl Marx who wrote: “The more abstract money is, the less natural its relationship to other commodities.”

Heathcare Insurance Reform? Who needs that!

A co-founder of Chicago-based Canopy Financial pleaded guilty of defrauding investors and clients of more than $93 million, according to prosecutors.

Jeremy Blackburn, 37, of Bolingbrook, pleaded guilty to one count of wire fraud in U.S. District Court.Blackburn, a former president and chief operating officer of Canopy, admitted participating in a scheme to bilk investors out of $75 million and siphoning funds in excess of $18 million, from 1,600 customer accounts that were intended for medical expenses.

In September, Canopy’s chief technology officer, Anthony Banas, also pleaded guilty to wire fraud. He is due to be sentenced March 30.
This is Republican capitalism. This is the Republican Party's ideal of a perfect healthcare insurance industry. This is the economic policy of the Plutocrats and their dogs in the Republican Party which increasingly believe they own the American people.

Conservatives aren't the worst people on Earth but they sure enable the Republicans and chain themselves to Plutocracy. Conservatives have embraced the mantra of Government can't do anything right. They demand no government intrusion. And then when a unscrupulous person, like Jeremy Blackburn, or soulless Corporate board, like BP, motivated ony by the size of their golden parachutes commits massive fraud conservatives point and stammer "See government oversight is worthless!"

The BP Oil Gulf Disaster and Massey Energy Upper Big Branch Mine Explosion are just the most spectacular instances Republican malfeasance. The actions of Blackburn and Banas are indicative of conservatives' feelings, theft and greed are part of the Free Market and Government laws are just evil Socialism which hamper industrious Capitalists like themselves. Canopy's problem was their theft was too small. In order to receive Republican deference and protection they needed to steal Billions.

President Obama (R) Duping America

"The faults of the burglar are the qualities of the financier." ~ George Bernard Shaw
President Obama, has fooled the American people. But, not in the way the rabid Republicans have accused him of doing. He's not a secret kenyan radical destroying America for Socialism. President Obama isn't a Progressive, he's not a Liberal, heck he's not even a Democrat. No, President Obama is a Republican.

So, in a sense he is destroying America but it is by acquiescing to the demands of the Republicans and agreeing to Republican Piss Down Your Back and tell you it's Raining trickle down political and economic views which have enriched the Plutocrats and sewn the destruction of the Middle Class and Poor in this nation.

He removed the Public Option without a fight. He preemptively agreed tp Freeze the Pay of hard woking middle class Federal workers. And now President Obama has caved monumentally on Taxes agreeing to retain the monstrous Transfer of Wealth to the Rich Bush Rates, including setting the Estate Tax Rate at it's lowest in history, keeping Capital gains taxes at a mere 15% and failing to close the Corporate tax loop holes which allow American Companies to keep firing Americans and moving jobs to other countries.

President Obama appears to be a Corporate toady. I didn’t want to believe Obama was a lackey but the caving to everything the Republicans and Wall Street demand, expanding the War in Afghanistan, fighting to continue DADT and the working with the Republicans to quash and prevent any investigations of Bush and Cheney make it obvious. Obama not only isn’t the Progressive Superman we hoped for, he isn’t even a Democrat.

The entire Right, which only a few years ago said it was treason to question a sitting President during wartime, has called him terrorist-loving, marxist-muslim-hitler on the house floor, blamed him for President Bush's debt and for the malfeasance of BP and the actions of Wikileaks, insulted his birth, his parentage, his family and religion everyday. Yet, not only does he not fight back he ensures from his position to hamstring and geld the rest of the party as well.

He capitulates to everything they want and more.

How did it come to this?

Why christians hate Harry Potter

Christians hate Harry Potter because his books are far better crafted, far better written and are a far more internally consistent fairy tale than the collection of nonsense contained in their books of the bible.

The Democratic Party needs to Stop Whining and Start Fighting

"We should therefore claim, in the name of tolerance, the right not to tolerate the intolerant." ~ Karl Popper
Republicans are obstructionists, Republicans are not helping us, Republicans just say no to everything, Republicans this, Republicans that; every Democrat in DC laments. Yes. Yes. Yes we know. 80% of the American people know. What the American people also want to know is; what are the Democrats going to do about it? When will Democrats stop tolerating the intolerant Republican menace?

Yes, we know that John Kyl and the Republicans are holding up the START treaty with Russia, endangering every American life, for the sole purpose of making President Obama look bad.

Yes, we know that Mitch McConnell, Jim Bunning, Richard Shelby and every Republican will block all legislation and nominations by the Obama's Executive branch, no matter what, for the sole purpose of making President Obama look bad.

Yes, we know that Republicans will never accept homosexuals as people let alone in the military no matter how many polls show the current military members don't give a damn, no matter if a hundred retired Generals and Admirals say it's time to let people serve openly, and no matter how many times Bush appointed Secretary of Defense Gates says it's time to change the policy.

Yes, we know that conservative Justices Antonin Scalia, Clarence Thomas and Samuel Alito have diligently done their duty to their Moneyed Masters in the Citizens United SCOTUS ruling and are now busy collecting their kickbacks and payoffs.

Yes, we know that Republicans use their position in Federal Government to funnel Billions of Taxpayer dollars to corporations, which then, give them consulting jobs and speaking engagements as bribes and kickbacks.

Yes, we know that Republicans would eliminate all regulations on Business allowing Brown & Williamson (now Reynold's American), BP, Halliburton, Massey Energy to sell deadly products to Americans and work employees in dangerous or deadly conditions.

Yes, we know that Republicans champion the continuation of the Wars in Iraq and Afghanistan just as staunchly as they refuse to serve in them.

Yes, we know that Republicans are immune to reason when their blatant partisan hypocrisy is highlighted by Rachel Maddow or Jon Stewart.

Yes, we know that the vast majority of Republicans, like Tom DeLay, are convicted criminals who brazenly use campaign money to buy influence and steal elections.

But, what we progressives and liberals want to know is when are you going to stop trying to make friends with the Republican bullies who keep making you look foolish in your outreach efforts? We want to know when you are going to stop turning the other cheek and start meeting Republican lies and intolerance with truth and strength? When are the Democrats going to Fight Back against the Republican Menace?

Why do conservatives love Ayn Rand?

Rand's Atheism was a key component of her metaphysical outlook and she had no qualms about declaring religious believers or anyone who spoke of Faith to be without Reason or utterly irrational.

Rand was also pro-abortion all the way up until delivery day. "Observe that by ascribing rights to the unborn, i.e., the nonliving, the anti-abortionists obliterate the rights of the living: the right of young people to set the course of their own lives." And "Rights do not pertain to a potential, only to an actual being. A child cannot acquire any rights until it is born. The living take precedence over the not-yet-living (or the unborn)."

Rand had no problem with non-traditional marriage and extra-marital relations between people, indulging in an open affair herself. Conservatives are often seen with signs; Marriage = 1 Man +1 Woman and conservatives rail that this is traditional marriage. "The plea to preserve “tradition” as such, can appeal only to those who have given up or to those who never intended to achieve anything in life. It is a plea that appeals to the worst elements in men and rejects the best: it appeals to fear, sloth, cowardice, conformity, self-doubt—and rejects creativeness, originality, courage, independence, self-reliance."

Additionally, conservatives have been clamoring for a Constitutional Amendment defining marriage as 1 man and 1 woman and have succeeded in getting laws brought forth in 31 states. But, while Rand was personally offended by homosexuality she clearly was opposed to government determining what two adults did with their own bodies, "I do not approve of such practices or regard them as necessarily moral, but it is improper for the law to interfere with a relationship between consenting adults."

I have a hard time understanding why so many Tea Party members want to Go Galt as they would no doubt be the ones left to die on the train tracks or left outside the Invisible Gulch...

So, why exactly do conservatives claim to love Ayn Rand?

Federal Pay Freeze

I call that a bargain
The best I ever had
- Bargain, The Who

I'm on board President Obama with a 2 year Federal Government pay freeze if the tax rate on the Rich goes back to the pre-Bush rates followed by an increase above that rate and Corporate Tax loop holes, which allow Exxon-Mobil and General Electric to get away with paying no US income tax, are filled. Despite the lies of Republican bureaucrats, Federal Employees are not lazy and overpaid but are hard working Middle Class people. And the House is gearing up to vote on continuing the specific tax break on the middle class and the less well off.
"If anything, taxes for the lower and middle class and maybe even the upper middle class should even probably be cut further," Warren Buffett said. "But I think that people at the high end -- people like myself -- should be paying a lot more in taxes. We have it better than we've ever had it."
But, Republicans being natural liars and scum are opposed to any Tax changes or benefits which aid the majority of Americans. Republicans care only for their Feudal Lords, the Plutocrats. Republicans want the tax burden of running America to fall squarely on the Middle Class and Poor because they know profligate Republicans spending for War Profiteers coupled with bailouts for Wall Street Racketeers and apologies to BigOil polluters will grind 280 million americans into serfdom and poverty from whence they can be easily ruled and worked to death.

Republicans and Wall Street sabotage America

"We’re losing our democracy to a different system. It’s called plutocracy.” ~ Robert Reich

"I sincerely believe, with you, that banking establishments are more dangerous than standing armies."~ Thomas Jefferson

"Corporations have been enthroned .... An era of corruption in high places will follow and the money power will endeavor to prolong its reign by working on the prejudices of the people... until wealth is aggregated in a few hands ... and the Republic is destroyed." ~ Abraham Lincoln
The Republican Party has been wholly bought and paid for by Corporate Money. There is one job the Republicans have to accomplish as they steal back into DC, which is the continued transfer of wealth in this nation to the Richest. Already under George Bush's evil regime we saw a the Rich get Richer but, we've also seen Republicans use the power of Government to transfer Trillions into the coffers of the Rich.

But it's never enough for the Plutocrats. What they want is Plutonomy, a new era of Feudalism, in which Wall Street bankers are the new Lords and Barons with Republican bureaucrats acting as the new clergy telling the rest of America this is the way it's supposed to be. As Republican Jeb Henserling told America,
"I don’t think we can figure out how to outlaw recessions any more than we can outlaw tornadoes or outlaw hurricanes. Economic growth has never gone in one straight line up. It’s a part of freedom."
You see? Your economic woes are due to freedom. The vicissitudes of Freedom ordain that you be poor. Amen...

Remember Tea Partiers had no problems with the $700 Billion USC TARP bailout or with the other undisclosed billions used to rescue AIG, Bear Sterns and the other Wall Street racketeers accomplished by the Fed and financed with Taxpayer money. Sarah Palin supported the TARP in her standard mangled diction,
"Now, as for the economic bailout provisions and the measures that have already been taken, it is a time of crisis and government did have to step in playing an appropriate role to shore up the housing market to make sure that we're thawing out some of the potentially frozen credit lines and credit markets, government did have to step in there."
You betcha we must help the Banks which caused the Crisis because Capital belongs to the Capitalists and poverty belongs to the poor.

And as soon as those Trillions were in the hands of Wall Street, President Bush used his executive authority to allow the money to be used in whatever way the Treasury Secretary Hank Paulson and the Rich bastards they serve deem... Henry Paulson backed away from the government's plan to use $700 billion in bailout funds to buy troubled mortgage assets and instead called for a fresh injection of cash to financial institutions. "Our assessment at this time is that this is not the most effective way to use TARP (Troubled Asset Relief Program ) funds," Paulson said. "I will never apologize," Feudal Lord of the Exchequer Henry Paulson declared to the obedient serfs, "for changing an approach or strategy when the facts change. I think the apologies should come the other way." When you question him, you should apologize.

Remember the Tea Party anger at the hundreds of Billions requested yearly off budget by Bush as emergency war spending? Or when Billions in hard currency was physically lost in Iraq?

The last 10 years of the Bush Tax cuts were supposed to foster growth and jobs. Where are they? The Rich did what they always do with extra funds they "invested" those monies in their own off-shore bank accounts. Swiss banking giant UBS helped 52,000 unidentified American Thieves hide untold Billions stolen from American taxpayers into secret accounts. UBS agreed to pay $780 million USC to keep their identities secret. Under President Bush we had years of wage stagnation and wealth accumulation amongst the richest Americans just the way the Koch Brothers want.

Republicans want to crush the Middle Class and Poor and grind down Americans into serfdom and wage slavery forever.
"And I'm going to tell you one other thing: When did we ever get to a point in America where, we're nearly at the point where fifty percent of Americans don't pay anything in taxes! Nothing!" ~ Sean Hannity.
Of course, Hannity isn't the only Commentator at Faux News to demand the Poor pay more in Taxes. To the Rich in America the poor and middle class need to shoulder the burden of paying for Government and Government's role is to protect the profits of Wall Street.

President Obama is not the progressive superman many hoped he would be, but what he has done is offer hope with the Healthcare Insurance reform, the General Motors Bailout which saved thousands of UAW jobs, and ending the War profiteers boon in Iraq, so the Banking and Plutocratic Robber Barons have decided Obama must go. They engage in scurrilous lies about him to convince an ignorant vocal minority into believing Obama is somehow foreign.

How sad for our "North Korean Allies"

And for America that Mother Jones has been replaced by Mama Grizzlies.

Sarah Palin is a Corporate shill. Palin engages in the most inflammatory slash-and-burn rhetoric designed to convince middle class and poor people to vote against their economic self-interest. And it's working. And the Plutocratic rich assholes in this nation reward Palin with millions, which she feels is a fortune but which is a pittance to them.

Palin and her ilk dutifully read whatever script their Corporate Moneyed Masters place in front of them. Or Sarah Palin would if she knew how to read. Palin appeared on Glenn Beck's show to bash President Obama for not declaring War somewhere in Korea, but as is her wont, Palin went Rogue and declared the necessity of aiding our "North Korean allies". [Raw Story]

Sarah Palin is a true conservative and Republican. Palin is actively ignorant and completely devoid of rationality. She prides herself on not knowing what's going on in the world. She shamelessly lies like all Republicans and feels no compunction in doing so.

And she wants to be President. The damage she would do for her Corporate Controllers to America, to hard working Americans and to the world will far surpass George Bush's record.

Barack Obama Perfect Christian

President Obama is the perfect Christian. No matter how many times Republican and conservative racists slap him in the face he is ready to offer up the other cheek.

It began prior to his nomination, continued throughout his first two years in office with loud and continuous aspersions about President Obama's faith, birth, heritage and family and repeated wishes for his failure, removal and death. Republicans place their party and the demands of the Rich Plutocratic Controllers over the safety of American Citizens. But, even after winning the 2010 elections, with Republicans gloating about working to harm Americans so President Obama fails, he offered forth his hand in brotherhood to work together.

This infuriates blood thirsty Republican savages, like Sarah Palin, who long to kill things and are aroused at the sight of blood. Sarah Palin, is the perfect Republican, a savage anti-christian, who cloaks herself in righteousness while merely using religion to advance herself and her family.

Christianity is at odds with natural human behavior. Love thy neighbor as yourself is a reaction one must learn. Naturally, the last two years have shown that Republicans are false christians. Just listen to them, every single one of the GOP platforms are in opposition to christs' teachings. Republicans succor and fawn over money and build vast temples for Moneychangers. Republicans hate the poor and use the power of Government to see them ground down to an early grave for the Money Masters they serve. Republicans are the first to cast stones for behaviors they engage in wantonly. Republicans love warfare and death and seek to sacrifice as much of humanity on the altars of War as possible.

Republicans hate christ and venerate death, war and avarice.

Lovie Smith is a Good NFL Head Coach

The Bears are who we thought they were! ~ Dennis Green
The Bears defeated the Miami Dolphins 16-0 to improve to 7-3 this season. Which brings up the question of Lovie Smith's coaching ability. Lovie is not liked very much in Chicago. I tend to get exasperated at some of his coaching habits which seem to be mistakes to me. His challenge technique is poor and his record in them supports that conclusion. Additionally, he's lost several games (including one playoff game and nearly another) by his seeming inability to adjust his defensive schemes. But!!!

But, the Bears are in first place this year after 10 games and his record overall is very good. And during his tenure the Bears made their second Super Bowl appearance and, although they lost, it was to the favored Indianapolis Colts. Lovie has never lost a clubhouse or had his players turn on him.

Brian Urlacher, who predates Lovie Smith and is the best Bears player of the last 10 years and a borderline Hall of Famer, when asked about the negative coverage of Lovie by Marshall Faulk after the win said, "I don't understand it, man. I love Coach Smith. I think the problem is the media doesn't like him. He doesn't tell them what they want to hear. He doesn't sell players out on the field to the media."

Urlacher may be correct about the Media's dislike for Lovie, several 670 The Score radio personalities do not hide their desire for Lovie to be fired. And many sports fans in Chicago call up The Score and complain, 'Lovie isn't fired up on the sideline', that Lovie doesn't have 'The Fire and The Passion' to coach. While a rabid sideline demeanor is not a quality of a good coach, playoff appearances and victories are a good barometer. Following the Super Bowl Loss the Bears have failed to make the playoffs in last 3 seasons. So, during this last offseason the Bears picked up Julius Peppers, the best defensive end the team has had since Richard Dent, and Chester Taylor to guard against the possibility that Matt Forte is an average running back. The Bears are not blessed with unbelievable talent.

And that brings up the best argument for Lovie's status as good NFL coach. During his tenure Jerry Angelo has been a failure in talent evaluation and drafting. And has routinely left the Bears with deficiencies at key positions.

Jerry Angelo has a terrible record at drafting in the first round. Angelo has neglected to draft an offensive lineman in the early rounds since his failure with Marc Columbo and has not taken an offensive player of significance outside the aforementioned Matt Forte. The Bears best offensive player QB Jay Cutler was acquired via an expensive trade.

What Angelo has succeed in is drafting pro-bowl caliber defensive players, with Lance Briggs being a longshot Hall of Famer, and the gamble on Devin Hester.

Devin Hester is the best punt/kick returner to ever step onto a pro football field. His presence alone has been worth 3-4 wins a year since 2006.

And here is the problem, Lovie Smith has been saddled with a preponderance of average to below average players (by NFL standards) and has succeeded in squeezing the most out of those players and Jerry Angelo is very good at seeing raw, unrefined talent but fails at the task of selecting bona fide #1s. And Hester's play has covered up the egregious errors by Lovie Smith and Jerry Angelo.

Which leaves the Bears were they have been for the past 3 seasons. Around the middle of the league. But, this season's not over and as the wins pile up, it's becoming harder and harder to justify the hatred of Lovie Smith who is a good NFL Coach.

Sean Hannity whistling to his White Supremacist Fans

Do you just hate this President or do you hate America, Sean?
As I realized, after the American people soundly rejected conservative values, Sean Hannity would spend everyday attacking President Obama. Every single day Hannity has spent hours on TV and Radio undermining the President for the political gain of his Republican handlers. The Republican goal is to cause as much trouble as possible, sew discord and hurt as many Americans as they can so that they would regain control of that Government.

While Hannity has been successful in making conservatives believe Obama is a terrorist supporting marxist muslim responsible for Bush's military and economic failures, Hannity, Matt Drudge, Racist Limbaugh and the other Toxic Conservative Commentators have failed in one of the prime goals, which is getting President Obama visibly upset.

"The feeling among some people is this President is unhinged," Sean Hannity whistled to his White Supremacist Fans. "The only thing he's passionate about is ESPN, playing golf and playing some basketball."

Toxic Pukes like Hannity love to incite an emotional response from Democrats, especially African American Democrats. Because then Faux News reporters can put the incident on 24 hour loop, look askew at the camera, incline their head, speak to those that hear and smugly say "See those people always get like that..."

Some Republicans have learned that they need to alter their code words. It's no longer acceptable outside Republican and conservative circles to send emails with watermelons on the White House lawn or photoshopped images of President Obama as an African witch Doctor.

Today, sophisticated Republican bigots talk about President Obama being controlled by the ghost of his dead father and chide him for his Anti-colonialism, and use words like "unhinged" when what Conservatives want is for Obama to get angry. President Obama, however, is as cool as the other side of the pillow and will not allow himself to be prodded into such a display because he won't let himself be their n-slur.

The Scurrilous Hypocrisy of the Republicans and Conservatives

every day is exactly the same
and i've rehearsed my lines
and i know what's coming next
~ Everyday is Exactly The Same, Nine Inch Nails
What's coming next is the Republicans implementing the agenda of the Rich Plutocratic Bastards. What the Republicans are going to do is destroy, underfund, delegitimize, remove every and any Government agency which seeks to help and protect the American people while using their office to transfer more and more wealth to the Rich. So that the greediest Rich assholes who fund Republican coffers can squeeze more and more blood and treasure from the Country. But, while Republicans are cutting Medicaid, social security, OSHA, and the EPA they will have no problem using that self same Government to aid themselves in every way possible.

Here's newly elected Republican Congressman Doctor Andy Harris, who won on repealing Obamacare, demanding his free government health care.

Here's Brain Damaged deranged Republican liar Michele Bachmann, champion of the anti-Government Tea Party Caucus and new Republican Congressmen Vicky Hartzler, Krisit Noem and Stephen Fincher getting millions in Governemnt Subsidies (that is handouts) for their farms. From the article:
Bachmann's family farm, owned by her father-in-law, received more than $250,000 in subsidies over the past 15 years, according to the Environmental Working Group. A Bachmann spokesman said she is not involved in any operational decisions.

Vicky Hartzler of Missouri and her husband own a farm equipment business and a farm where they grow corn and soybeans. She received more than $770,000 in farm subsidies over the past 15 years, according to the Environmental Working Group, a Washington advocacy group that collects and analyzes farm subsidy data.

South Dakota Republican Kristi Noem, who ousted Democratic Rep. Stephanie Herseth Sandlin, had partial ownership in a ranch that received more than $3 million in subsidies over 15 years, though her family bought her out last year.

Farmer and gospel singer Stephen Fincher won an open seat House race in Tennessee this year while both railing against federal spending and deflecting criticism that his family had received $3.2 million in federal farm subsidies in the past 10 years.
So, never forget Republican Congressmen can get as much free health care and as much Welfare as they want but you, the average American? Well Republicans say fuck you! Who are you? Republicans want Americans to work hard pay taxes which they can steal and then die.

But, of course Republicans and Conservatives are so low and so evil their despicable craven hypocrisy is not only contained in their abuse of Government subsidies and their use of their High office to shape policies which ensure other Americans do not benefit they way Republicans and their Plutocratic Moneyed Masters do. No Republicans and Conservatives also use their power to criminally abuse those who hold different political views.

Virginia Thomas, wife of Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas, has no problem parlaying her husband's position to advance her fascist agenda and to receive millions of dollars in bribes and kickbacks funneled to her and her husband through such bogus fronts like Liberty Central. But, Virginia, not satisfied with ensuring the American worker is enslaved and worked to death for her Corporate Masters, is petty or vindictive enough to demand an apology from Professor Anita Hill for daring to tell America the truth about Clarence Thomas' vile sexual harassment.

Now matter how many crimes James O'Keefe is convicted of or the number of foiled rapes he attempts, O'Keefe is beloved by Conservatives. Because he's a war hero? Nope. O'Keefe graduated from Rutgers in 2006 and avoided the Iraq War Surge and military service altogether. But, because James O'Keefe is a racist bigot who attends White Supremacist rallies and succeeded in destroying ACORN conservatives will forever love him. That is conservatives who claim to despise crime and criminals unless that criminal happens to advance conservative values like bigotry.

And, who could forget, the Conservative War Drum beaters at Faux News and at all levels of the Republican Party and scattered throughout the college-aged Young Republicans and Young Conservative movements? Chicken Hawks one and all.

Republicans and Conservatives are scum sucking punk ass bitches who beat their breast and tear their hair over how evil the Government is but never turn down a free government handout and use their power and position in federal government to enrich themselves and their Corporate Controllers.

Republican John Shimkus turning Illinois into Alabama

If you repeat a lie often enough, You're a Republican...
There is no doubt nor any reasonable discussion concerning global climate change. It has occurred in the past, it is occurring now, and it will continue to occur in the future. The only area for debate is the amount of impact positive and negative that man can have on the world. This should not be a political issue but guess who wants to make it one, that's right, the Republican Party.

Now some Republicans are climate change deniers out of brazen political machinations. Battered conservative voters hate the world and demand America be different, so if the world scientific community agrees climate change is happening then conservatives reflexively demand their politicians deny it.

But other Republican seek to impose their religious bigotry and ignorance onto America. Such as Republican Congressman John Shimkus of Illinois.

"I believe that is the infallible word of god," Shimkus declared because jesus whispers it into his ear every night in the original Aramaic that climate change isn't real, carbon dioxide makes for good breathing, and miners hate mine safety laws because they aren't in the bible or Constitution.

So, no amount of evidence will ever be enough for Shimkus because everything on earth (besides the bible) is coated in man's inherent evilness and as such can never dissuade him. John Shimkus is now vying for the leadership spot of the House Energy and Commerce Committee.

Get used to it America. The 300 Republican Tyrants in the Federal Government are going to run your life. The 300 Republican Tyrants are going to decide (often times based on a collection of bronze age myths of desert nomads) what is best for you, what you can and can not do with your body, what your quality of life will be and for how long they work you until Republicans deem you to old or ineffective and leave you to die.

200 million a day (the lies told by Michele Bachmann)

The Republican Party, feeling giddy from their election victories, is going for the coup de grace against President Obama. And they have no trouble fabricating outrageous over-the-top lies to accomplish their Coup.

Whenever the Republicans need to attack they employ one of their Wicked Witches, in this case Michele Bachmann, to do the dirty work. Republicans feel using a woman to slander and lie provides them cover and they have a stable of Phyllis Schlafly clones more than willing to engage in slash-and-burn rhetoric. The latest lie Bachmann has been sent forth to push into the political debate is President Obama's diplomatic trip to India is going to cost 200 million USC per day. 200 Million. And when confronted with her complete fabrication Bachmann doesn't bat one of those mesmerizing eyes of hers,
"Well these are the numbers that have been coming out in the press," she drones.
Additionally, besides the deranged lying Michele Bachmann, R. Limbaugh, Fox News, and conservative bloggers are claiming 34 Naval vessels (the equivalent of 3 Carrier Groups) are tasked, 870 rooms are being rented, and 3000 people are going at a total cost of over 2 Billion USC.

It's the Judith Miller Media Loop.

Republicans push a complete lie into the Media and when the Media starts discussing it, Republicans point out the Media is discussing the lie so it must actually be true. Yeah, that is your Liberal Media at work. And, don't claim developmentally disabled Michele Bachmann is insane because whenever someone dares to point out the imbecilic insanity which comes beaming forth hypnotically from Michele Bachmann's giant tarsir like eyes the Very Serious People in the Liberal Media get upset (with criticism of Republicans).

While the lies are utterly ridiculous and have been easily disproved, the DoD has said no Carriers will be in the area, the Hotel President Obama and his staff are staying at has around 560 rooms, the Secret Service states it's a wild exaggeration, it doesn't matter. Such is the utter lack of shame of Republicans and the sad state of the battered conservative voter.

The Republican Party is comprised of the most scurrilous, disgraceful, bigoted liars and thieves ever to walk America. What is most important to Republicans is control of the Federal Government in order to steal as much as possible and oppress and enslave as many as possible. If they have to burn down America and kill every American to get what they want they will.

Whooping (Cough)! There it is!

What happened in Los Angeles when a vaccination ordinance was submitted to a popular referendum is typical of what would happen anywhere under the same circumstances. The ordinance was rejected, and smallpox spread through the town. - H. L. Mencken, Notes on Democracy, pg.57
Outbreaks of Whooping Cough (Pertussis) occasionally occur in America. Back in June California had an 5 deaths and 910 cases attributed to the highly contagious disease. The 5 deaths in June were infants of Latino parents and, most likely, had no access or inclination to seek out Health care and Vaccinations.

However, what we are witnessing today is a spread beyond the normal expected areas, as evidenced by the outbreak of 20 cases in two schools in the fabulous North Shore school districts in Wilmette and Winnetka. And thanks to the Anti-Vaccination Mob being moneyed is not a protection.

The Anti-Vaccination Mob has succeeded in reviving and strengthening vanquished diseases. And while the current Mob gained traction from the completely false and dishonestly written 1998 British Paper by the wholly discredited Dr. Andrew Wakefield in which he blamed Autism cases on vaccinations, a large part of the blame for the recent anti-vaccination movement is due to the steadily anti-science narrative, most often championed by Republican Party.

Most scientific theories have negative consequences for Republican Political Power, as such, those theories must be destroyed. But, ignorance doesn't merely belong to Republicans. Celebrities, most famously Jenny McCarthy, and liberals Bill Maher and Robert Kennedy Jr, immune to normal lives have thrown themselves behind the movement. The Anti-Vaccination Movement crosses political affiliation because it is based on the sloppy thinking, which is the natural state of the human brain. The Scientific Method isn't natural and had to be invented to overcome the human predilection to falsely ascribe patterns where they are none and to engage in fallacious post hoc ergo propter hoc thinking.

Many of the techniques used by the Anti-Vaccinators were garnered from the Anti-Evolutionists. I recommend going over the Science Blog Respectful Insolence by ORAC who examines and dissects the various and numerous Anti-Vaccination proponents who are engaging in propaganda, distortions, pseudoscience and outright lies.

Lt Gov Jason Plummer (R-IL), Flintstones Biology on the curriculum

Ginnungagap was so vast that it extended forever in every direction. There was nothing within the yawning void of Ginnungagap that any human thought could comprehend. Only the Gods knew the secret of Ginnungagap- it was not empty.
The only Creation Mythology that is true are the Norse-Teutonic Legends. I know they are true because that is my faith and True Creationism - Norse Creationism- must be taught in Illinois Public Schools alongside Evolution.

By just substituting the laughably false bible and judeo-christo-islamo myths for the above you have the stance of Illinois Republican Lieutenant Governor candidate Jason Plummer.
Plummer said he believed local school officials should be able to determine whether to teach creationism in schools. Simon said local school districts should not be able to opt to teach creationism, saying it was an issue of "separation of church and state."

Plummer said he believes in creationism.

Asked if he believed that the world was created in six days and the earth is 10,000 years old, Plummer said: "My philosophical beliefs and my life is based on my faith, and my faith is rooted in my Christian faith."
If local school boards wanted to teach that; First jesus came and he created the loaves and the dinosaurs and then he handed George Washington the Constitution when god ordained America as a white, christian, heteronormative promised land Plummer would be Okay with that.

Of course, what Plummer really wanted to do is send out the conservative code speak and move on but, fortunately, America has enough interested scientists and lay persons who do not want christian ignorance foisted on another generation of Americans as "knowledge".

I saw Leslie Marmon Silko give an interview lecture at the University of Chicago over the weekend. She's fascinating but I don't want her creation myths taught in Biology or Anthropology class either.

The Republicans are suceeding again in getting Americans to vote against their own economic self-interest by feeding them the same panoply of Racism, Religious bigotry and pseudo-scientific ignorance.

Only evil rotten anti-human legislation can come from the electing of polluted Republicans.

Offensive Conservatives set to Steal your Social Security

[A]nd now they’re coming for your Social Security money. They want your fuckin' retirement money. They want it back so they can give it to their criminal friends on Wall Street, and you know something? They’ll get it . . . - George Carlin
George Bush has finally owned up to his biggest mistake while in office... not Stealing your Social Security. While in Chicago promoting his book, President Bush proudly claimed 9/11 as one of his successes, "In terms of accomplishments, my biggest accomplishment is that I kept the country safe," Bush said. But, he lamented his greatest failure that he wasn't able to privatize Social Security.

It's all right there for you America. They are coming to undo it all. They'll start with an Impeachment of President Obama for failing to provide his DNA to the Birthers, then they'll move onto their real goals; eliminate Social Security, eliminate Medicare, eliminate the Department of Labor and Education, eliminate the EPA, OSHA, MSHA, the Consumer Protection agencies, Wall Street oversight, and turn the America people into a mass of Wage Slaves working hard for 40 years and then cut loose to die of old age, injuries and lack of Healthcare coverage. Republicans want you to be nothing more than an obedient slave

And it will be The 300 who will accomplish it. 5 SC Justices, 50 Senators and 245 Congressmen; 300 Republicans. Those 300 will shut down Government. They will cut benefits for American workers and pass budgets which underfund any Government Agency which blocks the sadistic Corporate Rape America First crowd. They will offshore so many jobs and import so many immigrants that you will grovel and thank them when they provide you with just enough money to keep from starving and freezing to death.

That is the Government the Republican Party is telling the American People it will create; A mean, nasty and brutish regime. 300 Republican Bureaucrats who work for their Plutocratic Overlords to cosign the American Middle Class to history and shackle the American people with the chains of Corporate Bondage.

Republicans don't like to serve those extra 2/5ths persons

Bartender: "Hey! We don't serve their kind here!"
Luke: "What?"
Bartender: "Your droids. They'll have to wait outside. We don't want them here." ~ Discrimination rears it's ugly head even a long time ago, in a galaxy far far away...
Sharron Angle and Ayn Rand Paul are two of the most vocal Republicans to push forward the Republican Party agenda of removing the illegal 2/5ths of a person unconstitutionally added by Liberal activist judges.

The vast majority of conservatives and Republicans are bigots and racists. Every day the Republican Party is exposed for racism which permeates their party. David Bartholomew, the chair of Virginia Beach's Republican party, sent forth a typical racist Republican joke email which is so vile I wont repeat, but you can view it here.

However, more disconcerting than the individual racists who inhabit all levels of the Republican Party and all manners of conservatives is the effort by Tea Party groups to use naked aggression and threats to keep minorities from voting. Here's a sample of Tea Party Tolerance and conservative non-bigotry:
"You liberial scumbags should be hung by the neck in public ! We are on to your voter fraud. Keep it up you MOTHER FUCKERS and you will soon be put down for a long dirt nap! Your nothing but a bunch of white guilt ridden assholes, NIGGERS and greasy mexican spics!
Angle when confronted about her blatantly racist Watch out for the illegal mexican stealing college scholarships from wholesome white peoples campaign videos told the Hispanic crowd they looked a little more Asian to her. Angle sounds a little Ass-ian to me.

Rand Paul is livid that Corporations are not allowed to discriminate based on race or ethnicity and would not have voted for the Civil Rights act. "I don't like the idea of telling private business owners... But at the same time I do believe in private ownership." Paul believes in a Free Market were conservatives are free to tell certain people we don't serve your kind here.

Angle and Paul and so many others in the Republican Party are vile or ignorant racists but Racism is not the driving power behind the party. The real goal is to get these ignorant fiends elected so the Corporate Plutocrats can eliminate all assistance to the poor and Middle Class.

If the Republicans wrest control of Congress in 2010, they are coming for your Social Security. The Republican "Roadmap for America's Future" details plans to steal as much as 50% of Social Security benefits. The Moneyed Masters of the Republican Party have wanted to get their hands on Social Security for years. They want that money flushed into Wall street were they can make it disappear to Switzerland through algorithms and derivatives.

And with Republican victories this year they'll get it...

Poles in the Air

Na Zdrowie!

I've seen many and know about a few other Polish wedding traditions, but I've never heard of the one in which the groom is thrown into the air to land on his head.
The groom's sister-in-law told Niles police that friends were throwing the man up in the air as part of a "traditional dance" when they failed to catch him, causing him to fall to the ground. The incident reportedly occurred during an Oct. 9 reception at White Eagle Banquets, 6839 N. Milwaukee.
While I can't speak to the authenticity of the fling him around till he's injured I can attest to the quality of the food at The White Eagle in Niles. So, if you chance to be driving on Milwaukee Ave stop and sample the classic Polish Cuisine.

Joe Miller's DropZone Oathbreakers

The Oathkeepers are a group of various former and active duty Military members and Law Enforcement officers who jumped into political forefront last year along with the Teabaggers.

They crafted Youtube manifestos, propounded their Tenets at Teabagger Rallies and issued a Code of Conduct including a list of Ten Orders they will not Obey!

Among the Ten Orders is:
10. We will NOT obey any orders which infringe on the right of the people to free speech, to peaceably assemble, and to petition their government for a redress of grievances.

The Oathkeepers emerged because one of the first smears against President Obama from Glenn Beck, Michele Bachmann, Paul Broun and the Republican Party was that the US Military would be used for operations on American soil. Well lo and behold, Joe Miller, employed Active Duty Military members to unlawfully detain a US citizen.

While, I don't think they violated his 4th Amendment Rights, they did violate his 1st Amendment Rights and most states have laws against unlawful detention. In Illinois it's called Unlawful Restraint and it's a felony:
(720 ILCS 5/10‑3)
Sec. 10‑3. Unlawful restraint.
(a) A person commits the offense of unlawful restraint when he or she knowingly without legal authority detains another.
(b) Sentence. Unlawful restraint is a Class 4 felony.
I don't know what legal authority DropZone has but, this incident is worthy of an investigation and following that possibly charges against Miller's DropZone agents and Miller himself if he gave instructions to seize anyone whose questions he didn't like.

Republicans are transparent. Republicans and Conservatives know that if given power they will abuse it to it's fullest and use it to enrich themselves through greed, graft and avarice. And Republicans being evil can not imagine anyone else put into a position of power would behave any differently than themselves.

Republican Brownshirts goose stepping towards Washington

We've seen them before outfitted in white button downs and chinos stealing elections for their Chancellor in 2000.

Now, lead by their new "Furor" and financed by anti-Democratic, foreign subsidized, Un-American Corporations, Republicans are again engaging in tactics of intimidation and election theft in order to usurp control of the Federal Government, in order to install their Schutzstaffel (SS) Capitalist Government which seeks to impoverish, oppress, enslave or kill Americans.

Schutzstaffel Republicans guarding Joe Miller accosted and illegally detained reporter Tony Hopfinger for daring to question the Republican Furor. Of course, it's Hopfinger's fault. Sharron Angle laid out the Republican position; Schutzstaffel Teabaggers want "the Press to be our friend" and if they aren't she and other Republican Brownshirts might resort to "Second Amendment Remedies".

Mark Kirk's Voter Intimidation Squads to stop the "jigger" are just the latest revelations in the Republican plan to stop African-Americans and poor voters from voting. Republicans know their conservative base will back any plan to strip African-Americans of the vote because the vast majority of conservatives are bigots and racists.
Update: The Republican Party has also instituted a No venga aqui! television spot in spanglish to convince Hispanic persons to stay away from the voting booth. Of course, Sharron Angle may want the ads run Charlie Chan style because if you aren't a white christian fascist they all look alike to her.
Once the Republicans succeed in suppressing the vote they will restart their Republican SS Capitalism. Socialism saved the miners in Chile, but Republican SS Capitalism delights and strives to kill as many Miners as possible. Don Blakenship is a Republican Brownshirt through and through.

We've seen what a Republican Government holds for America. Now the Teabaggers, the New Republican Storm Troopers, have told Us what they will do. End Social Security and Medicare, Destroy the Department of Education, Criminalize Abortion, Incarcerate or Execute Homosexuals, Repeal Civil Rights, Enshrine oppressive christian dogma, Eliminate fair wages and pensions, and Increase the retirement age.

Anyone voting for Republicans is voting to stick their own head in the oven.

Mark Kirk, "Jigger" those African American votes

Let's be clear! The Republican Party and their Dick Armey Testicle Swallowers do not hate black people no matter how many times Republicans try and eliminate their vote.

Congressman Mark Kirk a Stolen Valor Icon, that is, a man who claims unearned War Hero Status, plans to send teams of lawyers, "Voter Integrity" squads, into Predominately Black Chicago and Illinois neighborhoods to disenfranchise and discount their votes.

Kirk told Illinois Republicans, (H/T Arch Pundit), "These are lawyers and other people that will be deployed in key, vulnerable precincts, for example, South and West sides of Chicago, Rockford, Metro East, where the other side might be tempted to jigger the numbers somewhat".

Racism just has a way of oozing forth from Republicans...

I don't know Congressman Kirk's mind but it's intersting the word "jigger" would pop into his head when he is speaking about black neighborhoods and African-American voters. Almost like his mind naturally goes to a word which is close to the j based slur when he thinks about African-Americans.

Additionally, and more telling, is Kirk's lock-step Republican Bigotry in raising the spectre of Black Voter fraud yet again.

Republicans want You Poor and Enslaved

The Republican Party has a simple goal for America. Destroy Thought, Science and Freedom and Enslave the American People.

The Republican Party's Operatives, their elected officials and their Billionaire Supporters are fighting a war to reduce the vast majority of the American Populace to Wage Slaves, content with the scraps of life provided by Corporate Moneyed Masters. They blame you the worker for the Recession caused by Republican politicians, wars and economic policies. (Your Fat Paycheck Keeps Your Neighbor Unemployed by Kevin Hassert)

They've succeeded in so thoroughly compromising the Republican Party that mentally unstable persons with learning disabilities dominate Republican primaries, and it's not just 1 or 2 extremists who might slip through but the majority of candidates. Listen to what the Republican candidates scream, "I am not a witch", "Second Amendment Remedies", "I'm a scientist and a very good one",

Read and Watch these Republicans Candidates:
Art Robinson
Christine O'Donnell
Pat Toomey
Sharron Angle
Rand Paul
Jan Brewer
Carl Pallandino
Ken Buck
Joe Miller
Linda McMahon
Cary Fiorina
Rich Iott
They act like Waffen SS Nazis, steal campaign funds, call for violence and murder of Liberals and Democrats, outsource American jobs, threaten or run from reporters, fire police officers who investigate their political benefactors, want to repeal Civil Rights, abortion, eliminate Social Security, Medicare, Minimum Wages and change US History and deny American students access to Scientific Facts about Evolution.

And these are just the major candidates, the Republican Party is littered throughout with Bigots, like Dean Grose, and Terrorists, like Catherine Crabill, calling for Armed Insurrection against the lawfully elected President and Government.

And Don Blakenship and the Koch Brothers can insure these handpicked morons are given nearly a 50% chance of being elected by inundating all forms of media, thanks to the Citizens United Supreme Court Decision with millions of dollars and racist, bigoted fear mongering screeds which scare their handpicked demographic the entitled white heteronormative christian fascist who wants his country back. and if that doesn't work then Conservatives parade one of their bevy of "attractive" women, Sarah Palin, Andrea Tantaros, S.E. Cupp, festooned with em-smartening glasses to give these mouth breathing bigots an erection and eliminate the last remaining independent thought.

And the Tea Party is not a spontaneous uprising or some new phenomenon but merely the more vocal Rove/Armey Testicle gurgling Bigots who voted Palin/McCain whom we all got to know during the Election:

Zero to Zero point One Percent of Teabaggers voted for Obama so it's not surprising they would hate him now. The Teabaggers shouted Terrorist, Muslim and Commie Faggot then and Racists and Bigots don't change their hatreds over night.

And once the Republicans gain power they'll force you to work more years for less money, while they steal your Social Security and watch you die after eliminating your Medical Coverage. It's all to elevate a mass of Republicans who can be trusted to enact their Plutocratic Dictators Policies of Enslavement and vote whichever way The Koch Brothers decree.

James O'Keefe and Jason Mattera Conservative Birds of a Feather

And those birds happen to be Racist Chicken Hawks.

Jason Mattera is one of the most cowardly humans to have ever taken a breath. Here is an exchange between Mattera and Chris Matthews:
Chris Matthews: "Would you like to enlist in this war [Iraq]?"
Jason Mattera: "No."
Fucking Disgraceful. Conservatives are Fucking Cowards. And further:
Matthews: "What kind of people should fight in this war, if not you?"
Mattera: "Those who want to."
Mattera goes on to state, He's Fighting the Battle for Ideas. And one of those ideas is to write a book blaming all the problems cowardly conservatives have caused on Liberals.

Once years ago I told friends that a quick way to make money was to write a book and call it Liberalism is a Genetic Disorder and it's very bad for America blah blah blah. Because, Rupert Murdoch or the Koch Brothers will immediatley buy a million and a half copies and include it as a free gift to duped and ignorant conservatives who sign up for the R. Limbaugh newsletter or Human Events webzine. Well, Jason Mattera, while spending many years not in the military, has now come upon or been told the same idea! He's got a book out called Will Smith Zombies or Obama Zombies because as he said in this video he's got a tough time telling them apart.

You see Mattera is fighting on the Home Front where all conservatives muster. Mattera is among the Next Generation of Young Conservative, Generation Chicken Hawk, as captured by Max Blumenthal. The Young Conservatives of today are following in the steps of R. Limbaugh, Dick Armey, John Ashcroft (6 Vietnam Deferments, that even surpasses Dick Cheney), John Bolton, Tucker Carlson, Jim DeMint, Tom DeLay, Mitt Romney, and on and on and on. Just go down any list of Fox Supported Politicians and Commentators. None of them ever served. None of them have a clue about War. The 2010 CPAC Speakers list was a who's who of Bigoted Conservative Warmongering Chicken Hawks.

Conservatives are Fucking Disgraceful. But, conservatives have no sense of shame, no sense of honor, no compunctions about being cowardly pig fucking assholes. But, Mattera was more than content to Support the President during war, when the President is a white republican. Now that a Black man has that mantle it's a different story. And that's where the other modern young conservative step in.

James O'Keefe, Convicted Criminal, is a darling to conservatives because he targets minorities. O'Keefe is, of course, a Chicken Hawk having graduated from Rutgers in 2006 and steadfastly refusing to enlist even though Republicans at that time were rallying behind Bush and Cheney for a ratcheting up of the War in Iraq. But, O'Keefe and his Handler Andrew Breitbart had other people to attack; Minorities.

James O'Keefe was granted lifetime Hero Status and a Conservative Medal of Honor amongst the Right because through COMPLETELY FABRICATED and HIGHLY EDITED video with the help of Fox News he got the organization ACORN defunded. And when any organization which aids oppressed minorities and poor people is minimalized or marginalized, Republicans cheer because it brings them another step closer to reinstalling Slavery, which is the goal of the Republican Party's Moneyed Masters.

However, after the ACORN victory O'Keefe has landed in trouble twice. Once for a crime, which he was convicted, during the Watergate Jr wiretapping attempt at Senator Mary Landrieu's office. And now recently for attempting to seduce or drug a female CNN reporter and videotape her naked or in compromising positions.

But, these incidents don't matter to Conservatives. Mattera's nationally televised cowardice and O'Keefe's committed crimes and attempted sex crimes DO NOT MATTER to conservatives. Conservatives are cowardly hypocrites who will never disown anyone who helps advance the Conservative Values of Oppression, Theft and Murder.

Republican Tax Cuts, Spending and Ultra-Whining

You've never tasted desperate. You're the prince of Gotham you'd have to go a thousand miles to find someone who didn't know your name. So don't come down here with your anger. - Carmine Falcone, Batman Begins
A blog post about a week ago by Todd Henderson, Law Professor at the University of Chicago caused a stir because Mister Henderson engaged in the perverse whining of the Ultra Entitled. His “Truth on the Market” blog post now long since deleted (because Henderson couldn't stand to have his Libertarian garbage and factual errors challenged although it is google cached for all time) as Henderson complained that with 'my big mortgage, my cars, my nanny, my lawn service, my children's private schools, my $15,000+ a year property taxes' he couldn't afford to have his and his wife's combined income of more than $250,000 taxed at the pre-Bush rates.
“A quick look at our family budget, which I will happily share with the White House, will show him that like many Americans, we are just getting by (emphasis added) despite seeming to be rich. We aren’t,” Henderson wrote.
Besides Henderson's haute myopic 'Oh we aren't Rich' attitude he also engages in the ignorant Libertarian mantra, Government taxes are theft and we the people can spend that money better, showing the Republican duplicity surrounding Tax Cuts.

The time to complain that We Can Spend Our Money Better than the Government was when Bush and Cheney were spending that money for you in Iraq and Afghanistan and Somalia and in Medicare Part D. The money the Government needs in order to function was stolen by Bush and given to his Moneyed Masters who shipped it to UBS in Switzerland and other off-shore Accounts. Bush and the Republicans used the Tax Cuts combined with the "Emergency" War Spending and DoD Budget to steal Trillions from America. But, of course, the testicle gurgling Tea Baggers didn't complain abut spending then as Bush isn't dark complected.

But, the lying Republican scum doesn't just tread in the ignorance surrounding the profligate spending they engaged in and for which the bill is now due, they engage in lies about what Tax Cuts accomplish. Republicans have been claiming for years Tax Cuts are going to stimulate job growth. Does anyone who is unemployed believe this bilge?

If it were true the years after Bush proposed and the Republican Congress implemented his Tax Cuts would have been the largest growth period in American history. But, it wasn't. And the only President who destroyed more jobs than Bush was Ronald Reagan during his Piss Down Your Back and Tell You It's Raining trickle down economics.

What Reagan's and Bush's Tax Cuts accomplished was the steadiest and fastest accumulation of Wealth in the Hands of the Rich and Ultra Rich Plutocrats since the infamous Robber Baron Age. That is what "Tax Cuts" are designed to accomplish. The funneling and concentration of Money into Republican Masters' Hands.

But, Ronald Reagan, didn't just Piss on the Poor and Middle Class, he also dismantled the Industrial Base of America for his Moneyed Masters.

Because, along with placing the Federal Tax Burden on the Middle Class the Plutocratic Tea Baggers want to off-shore as many jobs as possible. The Republican Party takes their orders from Plutocrats who have one goal, To Steal as much Money as possible.

To the Koch Brothers, Paul Singer, and The Triumphant American Plutocracy, the Federal Government exists to Reduce the Cost of Labor. Republicans help accomplish this by constant undercutting and attempts to Destroy Unions, the importing of illegal workers and the offshoring of as many jobs as possible.

When combined these efforts by Republicans help undermine and eliminate the power of American Workers who cost too much money for Plutocrats tastes.

Of course, in order to sell this crap to Middle Class persons Republicans wail about Welfare Theft (ACORN!!!) by those people, the gold teethed, latest hip hop cell phone ring tone, cadillac driving persons. It's a constant invocation of the Reagan Era Welfare Queens. It shows what middle class and working class people are up against. Money, they have it, they want more and they are willing to watch you suffer and die to ensure they get it.

Do you Miss them, yet? Never Forget Republicans were in Charge

On the day America suffered the worst attack in our History, except for when Republican Heroes were killing Americans during the Civil War, what was the focus for the Republican led Congress and President George W. Bush?

Well, Phil Gramm, along with Republicans Jim Leach and Thomas Bliley had successfully repealed the Glass-Steagall Act removing a check on the rapacious Banking Industry and Republicans were figuring out how to shift even more of the Federal Tax burden to the Middle Class and Poor.

And while George Bush would sign any Legislation that would shelter his Base and Moneyed Masters from supporting the Nation, W was busy trying to figure out a way to invade Iraq. On January 30, 2001 George W. Bush directs Rumsfeld and JCS chairman Hugh Shelton to examine military options for Iraq.

America knew this in 2004, when Paul O'Neil spoke out in January 2004.
"From the very beginning, there was a conviction, that Saddam Hussein was a bad person and that he needed to go,” says O’Neill, who adds that going after Saddam was topic "A" 10 days after the inauguration - eight months before Sept. 11. "It was all about finding a way to do it. That was the tone of it. The president saying ‘Go find me a way to do this,’" says O’Neill.
But Republicans of that Time were using the attacks of 9/11 to call anyone who questioned Bush and Cheney Terrorist Supporters and Traitors.

The Bush administration was well along the path to war before the 9/11 attacks. September 11 was not the motivation for the U.S. invasion of Iraq – it was a distraction from it.

9/11 and the Iraq War are enough to make The Bush/Cheney Regime the Worst in American History. But when you add on Torture, the Republican Recession, the blind eye to millions of EPA violations, the never explained nearly $5-a-gallon gas during Bush's Presidency and the Bush Regime pushed through TARP, a Bankers dream, wherein another Trillion in American taxpayer debt was grotesquely funneled directly to aid the Rich as a last Bushian Fuck You to the people... Well, what you have in George Bush and Dick Cheney are, perhaps, the two people who have done the most damage to America with the exception of Conservative Heroes Robert E. Lee and Jefferson Davis and Emperor Hirohito, Adolf Hitler and Osama Bin Laden.

The Wicked Conservative Witch of the East, Christine O'Donnell

"They always win," he said softly and bitterly after a while. "The bastards, they always bloody win." - The Dogs of War, Fredrick Forsyth.
The Sarah Palin of the East, Christine O'Donnell, is spectacular. Her views and beliefs are so lacking in understanding, so ignorant, so uninformed, so religiously warped as to require years of psychiatric counseling. But, as is their wont the Republicans merely desire another vote no matter the lack of substance. However, O'Donnell is a thief. She's used campaign funds for personal benefit and expenses, just like her idol the Queen Wicked Conservative Witch Sarah Palin. But It's Okay she's a Republican!

O'Donnell not only has the lack of ethics and criminal past like Sarah Palin, she has the vacant look and stilted speech patterns of the Cadre of Conservative Wicked Witches Palin, Michele Bachmann, Marsha Blackburn, Virginia Foxx and Sharon Angle. Palin and Bachmann, most likely, with their mangled words, choppy deliveries and inability to process language, have learning disabilities and it's a testament to the ability of public school teachers that they manage to operate.

And the Queen Wicked Witch of the North Sarah Palin has advised her nominal protege to only speak through Fox News. And why not? Fox is a one-stop shop in which Conservatives can receive a salary, softball interviews and as much time as needed to expound their scripted anti-Middle Class, anti-Poor Plutocratic Talking Points.

But, despite all the rigamarole the Tea Party is nothing more than an attempt to quicken the Republican Party. It's controlled by the same Republican Operatives and it's fueled by the same agenda as it has been for the last 80 years. The telling and salient point is the clear fact that almost every Tea Party candidate are lawyers or career politicians who have never had a real job and have never done a day's worth of real labor.

Here in Illinois the 8th District Tea Party nominee is William "Joe" Walsh running against somewhat Democrat Melissa Bean. Walsh is a teacher (+1) and has worked helping disadvantaged children in Chicago (+1) but has morphed into a career politician having run for office in 1996 and 1998. Back in the 90's, he attempted to distance himself from his Colonial Master Newt Gingrich and the 1994 Republican Bigots by claiming to be socially liberal and fiscally conservative. But, all of sudden now he's troubled by Government and Walsh has joined and proudly acknowledges the Tea Party so either his claims of being socially liberal were a lie then or now. Joe Walsh also has some shady background aspects as his Illinois Driver's License has been suspended at least once.

It's the same with Christine O'Donnell. She has run for office over and over and over. And she has said things either for shock value "blood soaked satanic altar" or to buttress her bigoted intolerant christian dominionist beliefs. But, the Teabaggers are dupes, imbeciles and hypocrites.

IOKIYAR. And so it goes...

Of the Tea Party candidates who spoke at the 2010 CPAC, Marco Rubio a favorite Tea bagger went into politics as soon as he was done with law school. Tim Pawlenty, the beloved Dark Horse Republican candidate for President, has had a Government job since 1988. So according to Tea Bag logic he's been unemployed for 22 years since the Government doesn't create jobs. And isn't the lack of military service and being a DC Lawyer and career politician what the Tea Party claims is wrong with Democrats and Washington DC?

And so it goes... the Tea Baggers are being used by the Republicans. Certainly they will make inroads and get a few maybe even several dozen candidates elected for a term or three but it will all end the same. The Republicans will hem and haw push an occasional social issue to the forefront but never get around to outlawing gay marriage or abortions while ensuring the Agenda of the Koch Brothers and the Other Moneyed Masters of the Nation dominates and destroys the Working and Middle Class.

And so it goes...

"Evolution is a myth! Well then why aren't monkeys still evolving into humans?" Christine O'Donnell, Republican Expert on Everything.

We the Teabaggers and Conservatives plan Pogroms

in Order to destroy a more perfect Union, establish Injustice, insure Domestic Terrorism, provide for the conservative defense, promote christian Welfare, and secure the Blessings of Liberty to Ourselves (White/Heteronormative/christians) and our Plutocratic Overlords...

With 6 weeks until the 2010 elections, the Teabaggers are lifting their masks and have let America know what they plan to do with election victories. First and foremost will be the immediate investigations of President Obama. It will merely be an extension of the unceasing campaign begun by the Right, trumpeted by Sarah Palin and Fox News and funded by Rich Plutocratic Assholes. Conservatives believe (probably correctly) that by engaging in constant non-stop screeching, loud-mouthed lying and demagogic vitriol on TV and Radio and in print and the Internet, good honest Americans will relent and give them election victories just to shut them up. It's bullying and verbal abuse by punk ass bitch conservatives.

But, the Tea Party has admitted that economic concerns are a pretext and that Fundamental Transformation of the American Society is and always has been their driving force. So the Teabagger Morality Commandos are out in full force. First is getting rid of the Usurper in the White House. It's called a White House for a reason. But, after starting the Obama Lynching Parade, the conservatives have several pogroms in line.

No abortions for anyone. Ever. No abortions, doesn't matter. If a woman is carrying the child of a violent rapist, doesn't matter. If the woman's fetus is suffering from severe birth defects, doesn't matter. No abortions and then afterwards no aid for the struggling woman forced by conservative zealots to give birth.

Homosexuality will be outlawed. This is a standard plank in the GOP platform. But, since I'm not homosexual I won't say anything when religious zealots and conservative bigots round up and murder gay people.

Obama's Healthcare Reform, Social Security, Medicare and Unions will be privatized abolished. This is the most perplexing as Republicans make no effort to hide their hatred of poor and sick people and these programs and organizations provide power to the powerless in America. Republicans want Americans to work until they're 70, without any health coverage, recourse if they are injured, and without a safety net and once Americans have used up the flower of their youth in back breaking labor for the Rich, Republicans having abolished Social Security want old people to die. Republicans routinely call sick , poor and old people stray animals, and liken them to burned down buildings.

All along the way this Oppressive Agenda of Intolerance and Bigotry will be championed by Glenn Beck, R. Limbaugh and the Toxic Commentators. They will warn the conservatives of the progressive scourge, of the liberal enemy at the heart of the Republic of the homosexual agenda which would cause God to remove his blessings from America and invite our destruction. And that will make all the murders and conservative terrorism okay for their violence will be washed clean in the blood of jesus christ.

At first conservatives didn't feel comfortable in openly indulging in their plans to oppress and incarcerate gays, enslave minorities and conduct pogroms against progressives but they've let slip their goals for America upon gaining power. Conservatives choose power over principle and elections over ethics. Conservative victory in this election is going to mean the power of the Federal Government is going to be used to oppress, enslave and kill Americans.

And for the conservative scum who immediately spam blogs with I demand evidence comments:
A Pig Fucking conservative staffer working for Chicken Hawk Saxby Chambliss is the source of a threatening gay slur, "All faggots must die", which came from a computer at Senator Chambliss office [Rawstory].

To Disgusting Republican Mike Huckabee, sick persons are like homes which have burned down. "It sounds so good, and it's such a warm message to say we're not gonna deny anyone from a preexisting condition. Well, no preexisting conditions." [Talking Points Memo]. Got that? Property is more important than People and If you were Wealthy you'd be Healthy. Otherwise the Republicans message to Americans is: give me your tired, your sick, your poor and watch as We let them Die.

Teabaggers Money to Be Had!

This is how the Conservative Movement propagates their crap.

Having written that Barack Obama is ruled by the african muslim ghost of his dead father to overthrow and kill whitey, Dinesh D'Souza is now making the rounds on Toxic Right Wing Radio to pimp his hoo hoo hoo chuckle chuckle hilariously titled "Roots" book. Glenn Beck had him on and somberly observed D'Souza's pulled straight from his ass article isn't "theory", "it's fact, just fact".

And this is of great appeal to the Teabaggers who have conditioned themselves to believe anything about Obama. They've had years of Barack Obama the terrorist pal, the kenyan born, the madrassa trained, the marxist bred, the liberation theology muslim pounded into them over and over again by the Bilge spewing Toxic talkers. And the Teabaggers money and votes are of great interest to Beck and D'Souza.

But, Glenn Beck, and the rest of the Conservative scum are receiving their orders from the Wealthy who want Republicans back into power so they can continue their unprecedented theft of Trillions from America. It's not a coincidence D'Souza's article appears in Forbes magazine.

Of course, I find it hilarious that the two Right Wing Champions of Barack Obama isn't American are Soviet Born and Raised Orly Taitz and a gentleman named Dinseh D'Souza. But, really this latest incident in the Right Wing Extremist Smear Obama Campaign says a lot about Dinesh. Ironically, Dinesh is a fervent christian dominionist so his entire worldview is dominated by the ghost of a jewish zombie and he embraces a pro-colonial forcing of christianity onto everyone.

Dinesh and Newtie Tickle the Lizard Brain [Hullabaloo]
D'Souza and Gingrich have put a psuedo-intellectual spin on this by calling it Obama's "Afro-Centric anti-colonialism" But it all adds up to the same thing: the angry black man is rising up and coming after good god-fearing white people.

But I don't think the tea partiers care what National Review thinks. They care what Glenn Beck and Rush Limbaugh thinks. (I have my suspicions that they will validate this premise without a second thought, but we'll have to wait and see what they say.) If they validate it, then nothing Byron York or David Frum or any of the standard conservative movement elites say will make a difference. The Tea Party is operating outside that framework now, and although they crave a certain kind of intellectual elite validation, they have created their own: they call Glenn Beck "the professor." And he was one of the first to posit publicly that Obama hates white people.
