Caterpillar Inc, Bain Capital, Banks, LIBOR and Mitt Romney: How Capitalism is just the new name for Imperalism

Labor is prior to, and independent of, capital. Capital is only the fruit of labor, and could never have existed if labor had not first existed. Labor is the superior of capital, and deserves much the higher consideration. Abraham Lincoln
Mitt Romney wants to replace Presdient Obama as well as Abraham Lincoln, whose bust he wishes to remove from the Oval Office as a nod & a wink to his "Special Relationship" to the "Anglo-Saxon Heritage". What Mitt has been doing his entire life, through off-shoring and out-sourcing American Jobs and dismantling American Companies is to make Capital superior to Labor.
Caterpillar Inc. announced record-smashing quarterly earnings Wednesday, trouncing 2011 figures and previous projections by market analysts, even as a strike at its Joliet plant is nearing the three-month mark.

The industrial manufacturing giant posted sales and revenues of $17.37 billion – a 22 percent increase over the previous year – including a quarterly profit of nearly $1.7 billion. The company also raised its profit outlook to $9.60 per share.
That sure is great but while Caterpillar is posting back-to-back-to-back-to-back record quarterly profits they are working to lower the wages and pensions of their workers. Why isn't Caterpillar's CEO compensation and worker's salaries tied together?

Why would Caterpillar Inc. be focused on freezing workers pay and pensions? Because Capitalists see high labor prices as an unnecessary evil. Why pay American workers high salaries when with the help of Republican Party and Pro-Business Democrats you can off-shore jobs to slave wage nations and (via Mitt Romney's proposed plan) repatriate overseas profits as tax breaks.

In 2004, the Swiss Banking Giant UBS began approaching affluent Americans (in Banking terms affluent means net worth of $50 Million plus) with the idea of setting up dummy off-shore Corporations. By early 2009 at least 52,000 Americans had hid at least $20 Billion in those off-shore tax havens. UBS paid the IRS a $780 million fine for aiding these Rich Criminals in defrauding tax payments.

But, as Senator Jon Kyl pointed out those Rich Criminals are just better than you,
"President Barack Obama should stop talking about the middle class because it turns people against rich Americans, who should be embraced as the Michael Jordans of the U.S. economy," Senator Jon Kyl (R-Ariz.)

"Here's Jordan for three... Yes!!! Did you see that look? Michael, he can't believe it." - Marv Albert recalls Michael Jordan's retroactive shrug following his invocation by Senator Not Intended to be a Factual Statement Kyl.
As the right-wing universe spearheaded by Faux News tries to rebrand Mitt Romney's time at Bain Capital we see the old ploy of relabelling of concepts which Humanity correctly considers odious into fresh new terms. Hence the word Imperalism is no longer used by Imperalists, what they talk about today is Free Market Capitalism.

Free Market Capitalism and what Mitt Romney did at Bain Capital is nothing more than the new name for an old idea. Which is too steal labor, resources and lives of 99% of the world to enrich a very small cadre of Plutocrats, or Class Warfare.

Mitt Romney did the same thing as a "Venture" Capitalist. Buying up companies, loading them with debt to inflate their worth and selling them off to make a profit. Mitt did not invent the practice nor is he the worst example of it. But, his legacy of sending American Jobs overseas is alive and well at Bain Capital.
Sensata is owned by Bain Capital, the private equity investment firm that the Republican presidential candidate once led and that has been the subject of a campaign debate about jobs and outsourcing. Romney had long since left his leadership position at Bain when Sensata bought the plant in 2010, but the Freeport City Council recently passed a unanimous 8-0 resolution calling on him to come visit and help keep the jobs in town. The workers have written him directly.
And even while Mitt Romney, boating enthusiast, laughingly jets around Lake Winnipesaukee he ignores the pleas of the victims of his evil crimes.

And this doesn't even go into the giant LIBOR manipulation scandal of Barclay's and dozens of British and American banks. Or the evil, corrupt Bankers at HSBC who while gouging every decent hard-working person who might be late on a payment was busy laundering millions of dollars from Mexican Drug Cartels, FARC guerrillas and Al Qaida Terrorists. Barclay's LIBOR rate rigging is nothing new.

Imperialists have always sought new methods and tools to extract the wealth from the poor and transfer it to themselves. It's all legerdemain. A shell game designed to Steal.

But, when dealing with Theft of this magnitude. Theft of Generations. Theft of Lives. Theft of the Wealth of Nations. You can't call it what it is.

Saint Ronnie Raygun and the annoiting of the new Right-Wing Messiah Mitt Romney (Updated: #RomneyShambles)

News of Darrell Issa's push to name America's coastal waterways after Ronald Reagan, H.R. 6147, the Ronald Wilson Reagan Exclusive Economic Zone of the United States I thought of a more appropriate memorial names. How about:
The Ronald Reagan Terrorist Appeasing Iran-Contra Arms Deals Economic Zone of the United States? Or

The Ronald Reagan Cut-and-Run Abandoner of Marines stationed in Lebanon Economic Zone of the United States? Or

The Ronald Reagan Chicken Hawk Coward Economic Zone of the United States? Or

The Ronald Reagan Weakening America by Disarming our Nuclear Weapons because He can't See Russia From his House Economic Zone of the United States? Or

The Ronald Reagan Quadrupled the Deficit and Raised Taxes 11 Times Economic Zone of the United States? Or

The Ronald Reagan Steak Eating Young Buck, Cadillac Driving Welfare Queen Economic Zone of the United States? Or

The Ronald Reagan Piss Down Your Back and Tell you It's Raining Prosperity Economic Zone of the United States?
When Reagan passed away in 2004, a fellow Marine, with whom I was friends, asked me my recollections of Reagan, stating he was too young to remember policy and the like, and only recalled Reagan as being a steady-hand on the rudder President.

I mentioned and expounded briefly on Reagan's history of deregulation and Voodoo Economics and his wishy-washy tough guy (Invade Grenada Leave Lebanon) talk but, that I did agree with President Reagan on eliminating Nuclear Weapons.
"One of the most important contributions we can make is, of course, to lower the level of all arms, and particularly nuclear arms." ~ Ronald Reagan, 03/23/83.

And "[M]aybe I should go see Andropov and propose eliminating all nuclear weapons" and "[M]y dream is to see the day when nuclear weapons will be banished from the face of the Earth".
Now, of course, when President Obama took up the policy of eliminating Nuclear Weapons, Faux News, Sarah Palin and every Right-wing hag and blowhard attacked him for "coddling our enemies".

But, that's the Beauty of the Reagan Deification. His words and actual policies no longer matter to Right-Wingers. They have created a Saint, an Idol for Conservatives to revere, when all a candidate has to do is utter, Ronald Reagan and look whistfully upwards and the duped conservatives wildly cheer...

Over at National Review Online, the Beautification of Mitt Romney has begun as he literally walks across Lake Winnipesaukee and will figuratively walk across the Chesapeake Bay and the Potomac to the White House to cleanse the US of it's Kenyan Marxist sins.

The funny thing is even the snippets pulled reveal the hidden Chicken Hawk Plutocrat Vulture Capitalist Welfare Queen Coward. As Romney "saved" his fellow vacationing lake home yachters who weren't in danger, saved the 2002 Salt Lake City Olympics by getting $1.5 Billion in Tax payer welfare from the Federal Government and had no problem "fighting" in France in the late 1960's instead of fighting in French-Indochina.

Funny how the article doesn't mention his time at Bain Capital or Mitt Romney's "Let Detroit Go Bankrupt" supposed saving of the Auto Industry, but then just like with Saint Reagan, Mitt Romney's actual record doesn't matter it's all about selling Romney as the Right-Wing Savior.

#RomneyShambles! Wow, Mitt Romney has just crushed it. The Twitter Quips show how ridiculous Romney is, And the Gaffe Heard Round the World was the start of Romney's Presidental Defeat! A few of best tweets:

Mitt Romney retroactively cancels visit to London. - DCPlod

America- please take Mitt Romney back. Or do we have to declare independence and dump him in the habour first? - InkMoth

Is Mitt Romney basing his trip on National Lampoon's European Vacation? Has he met Eric Idle yet? - GaiPajama

WASP complains President Obama doesn't understand Anglo-Saxon Heritage (Conservative Racism)

Sadly, this is not a story about a minor star of the 1980's Metal Era talking politics*, for that you'll have to read about Dave Mustaine being excited by Rick Santorum.

A Totally-Not-Racist Republican Mitt Romney advisor complained that President Obama doesn't "fully appreciate" our and Great Britian's special "Anglo-Saxon heritage".
“We are part of an Anglo-Saxon heritage. The White House didn’t fully appreciate the shared history we have.”
This after John Sununu pouted he wished, "this President [Obama] would learn how to be an American."

Of course, the odious Mitt Romney, Dauphin of the Plutocracy, isn't just going to let his bondsmen raise the specter of the scary dark hued Obama,
"It's a very strange and in some respects foreign to the American experience type of philosophy. His whole philosophy is an upside-down philosophy that does not comport with the American experience."
The evil myopic inability of right-wingers to even understand there exists an American experience outside their privileged White Anglo-Saxon Protestant universe is the second worst thing which infects the Republican Party and the modern conservative movement. The deference and protection Right-Wings Guard Dogs provide to the 1% and Disaster Vulture Capitalists oppressing and robbing the world being the worst.

But, Romney and the Republicans aren't ignorant or myopic. They know exactly what they are doing. Purging voter roles. Complaining about how foreign President Obama is, constantly lying about him apologizing overseas or attacking small business owners, or appeasing terrorists. Republicans are directly appealing to the conservative bigots and racists to win this election.

It just might work.

*- However, Blackie Lawless of WASP supported John McCain in 2008 citing it was a mandate against President Obama and that he wanted to cling to his guns and religion.

Upon recalling that right-wingers ginned up anger when President Obama had the bust of Winston Churchill replaced with one of Abraham Lincoln, I recommend reading Britian and Poland 1939-1943: The Betrayed Ally by Anita J. Prazmowska, to understand how Britian and Churchill misled the Polish Government in exile, delivered the Polish people to the Soviet wolves, and used the Polish pilots and paratroopers as fodder against the Nazis to fully comprehend a "Special Relationship" with Britian.

But, reading the comments over at the Daily Telegraph, the one by Anthony Wilmont (flying the traitorous CSA Battle Flag as a logo) proudly proclaiming, "I want my own state, the Confederate States of America with Ron Paul at its Head!" should highlight which voters Mitt Romney and his Republican ilk are courting.

The NRA should stick an AR-15 up it's collective Ass

And pull the trigger until it jams because in April of this year;
The NRA has spoken out in favor of a bill that passed in the Colorado House of Representatives this week that will repeal state-run background checks on people purchasing firearms.

Speaking out against the measure was Rep. Rhonda Fields (D-Aurora), whose son and daughter-in-law were murdered in 2005, as he was scheduled to testify at trial about another shooting. Fields stated in her opposition to the bill that the House of Representatives should be doing everything possible to preserve and protect life, the Denver Post reported.

The NRA says the Colorado Senate State, Veterans and Military Affairs Committee is known as the designated "kill committee" for pro-Second Amendment legislation.
Not that background checks would catch James Holmes. But, the whole point of the NRA has been to eliminate the opening sentence of the Holy 2nd Amendment, A well regulated militia...

Wayne LaPierre and the NRA have the power of life over death. Guns are more important than life. It's Wayne LaPierre's World, you just die in it...

The Dark Night in Colorado and America's Mental Health

"The white man, that landed here; He came with two great weapons. One is the bible and the other was the gun. If he didn't humble you with the bible, he'd crumble you with the gun. And he's still praising the lord and passing the ammunition." - Lewis H. Michaux
As the media engages in the morbid coverage of The Dark Night of Colorado the Pro-Gun Lobby has conditioned America to simply treat these increasingly murderous sprees as "natural disasters".

We should feel sympathy for the victims and horror at the tragedy but, simply go back to our daily routine while awaiting the next shooting as though it's simply part of the societal landscape, like toronadoes, droughts, and Oil Spills.

But question the sanity of allowing someone to purchase 6000 rounds of ammunition? No, we can not do that, because the Holy Second Amendment. We are being held hostage to a warped vision of an idea. But, according to right-wing loonies these gun rampages are a god given immutable law and thus man can not change it. This is all just collateral damage of Freedom.

The writers over at Lawyers, Guns, and Money show how Conservative scum Glenn Reynolds immediately politcized the tragedy. Like most of the despicable tactics of right-wings it's brilliant. Use this horrific gun-fueled terrorist assualt as a political battering ram all the while bemoaning that Liberals are going to use it as a political battering ram.

Reverend Rick Warren tweeted shortly after the shooting, "When students are taught that they are no different from animals, they act like it." Nice christian compassion there Rick, you fat pile of putrid garbage, go back to bashing poor people for not paying enough taxes.

This incident is going to resonate for decades. A dozen murders, 59 wounded, hundreds more exposed to the carnage. Decades from now people and extended families will be dealing with the fallout and emotional damage.

But, that means nothing to right-wingers and gun loving loonies. No, they must retreat into a pseudo-philosphical realm where the death and devastation of unfettered access to guns is just some thought experminent.

Well, as always the first proposition of gun loonies is to claim if someone in the theater was packing this would have all been avoided. The way to combat gun violence is with *moar* guns!

This is, of course, ridiculous because James Holmes was "Acting" and any armed patron would be "Reacting". Action beats Reaction 99% of the time. But, when taking into account the number of people, the darkened conditions, the confusion, the smoke, the panic, and the up-armored murderer Holmes, how many rounds would be needed to drop him? But, such considerations are purposefully avoided by deluded gun loonies who would have you believe and probably believe themselves that they could draw, fire 2 rounds center mass and holster in 3 seconds all the while you enjoy the show.

Now, moving beyond the right-wing one-shot, one-kill Death Wish fantasy scenarios, gun loonies often claim that the mere thought that an intended gallery of victims would included a preponderance or even several armed persons would be enough to dissaude the attacker. And this is why famously Wyatt Earp, Doc Holiday and Bat Masterton never had to fire their guns or even pull their pistols in the old west because everyone was armed. But, if as every gun owner wants to claim Holmes was "crazy, sick, demented" then a logical fear of others having guns isn't going to stop him.

James Holmes obviously suffered a pyschotic break and based on his preperations he knew it. It's probable his study of the brain provided him with the edge in this incident. He was acting and knew the reaction times of his victims would be slowed and flawed.

More and more often in my daily duties as a Police Officer, I come into contact with people suffering from untreated mental disorders or diminished capacity. But, Police Officers should not be regularly tasked with responding to people suffering from reduced capacity or mental problems. When your only tool is a hammer, then everyone becomes a nail.

The Mental Health of members of society needs to be addressed by society. But, more and more "society" lets these people fall through the cracks because family counselors, DCFS workers, and mental health professionals are understaffed and overworked. While local and state governments choose to cut funding for those workers because budgets are squeezed.

And budgets are squeezed because the 1% in this Nation see no reason to invest in it. More and more superrich bastards, like Mitt Romney, ferret away Billions into off-shore tax havens.

The 1% have no reason to have a Post Office, no reason to have National Healthcare, no reason to have a Social Security safety net, no reason to regulate gun sales or control access to ammuntion. The 1% who control 50% of this country's wealth see no point in having a Nation.

They have the assets to set themselves up in little fiefdoms. The 1% don't see movies in giant cinemaplexs with the hoi poloi. They don't do downward facing dog with a bunch of middle class housewives. They have private movie studios. Yoga instructors come to their homes.

Society is at risk because the assets of society are being drained to the coffers of the Plutocracy.

Murderous Gun Spree in Colorado but, It's not Terrorism because the suspect is "white"

America you'd better get used to daily murder sprees by heavily armed gunman.

In a suburb of Denver, Colorado, a gun loving terrorist wearing gas mask and bullet-proof vest killed 12 people at a midnight premiere of The Dark Knight Rises. The terrorist is apparently a University of Colorado drop-out, 24 year old James Holmes.

Holmes was armed with two .40 caliber Glocks, a Remington model 870 shotgun and a Smith and Wesson AR-15 rifle, also was wearing a bullet-proof vest and may have released a tear-gas cannister.

If only George Zimmerman was there instead of being locked up for stalking and gunning down that Trayvon Martin. But, then of course, Trayvon was black and armed with a bag of skittles, not a vest-wearing, multiple gun-carrying white college student.
"I believe, every American should have to go out and buy a Glock 9mm. And if you don’t do it, we’ll tax you. Now, I wonder how the liberals will feel about that one.” - Florida Congressman Allen West, murderous pyscho enabler.
12 lives sacrificed upon the altar of the Gun. How many more people? How many more times? How long must we cower under the barrel of the Gun?

Never have I ever read a true message from the gun loving psychos of America to the families of the victims of these muderous outrages. While they are crafting their prefunctonary condolences Gun Lovers of America are locking and loading.

Immediately, after Gun Crazies attack Gun Crazy Apologists attack.
Damn Librul Media Never tells you about the hundreds of times gun-owners stop an attack like this, huh huh huh??? Fat Michael Moore should show up to my house and I'll teach him "Gun Control" means using two-hands!
It's as if these real world consequences of their political beliefs are just thought experiments to the gun crazies. Nope, no need to reflect. Their immediate reaction is towards insular "cling to their guns" lashing out, like wounded animals. Usually, accompanied by a bad case of projection as they believe anyone who wants to curb murderous gun violence will "politicize" this tragedy, when in fact, that is precisely what the Professional Gun Lobby have always done post-killing spree.

So, instead of even pausing to question their beliefs, the organized Pro-Gun Establishment will simply label the terrorist "crazy" and "liberal", turn inwards and ramp up the NRA outrage machine over President Obama's Super-Secret Plan to Take their Guns.

And We, the People allow others to make life and death choices for us by allowing gun-loving psychopaths to legalize the Freedom to walk into bars armed to the teeth, purchase extended clip magazines, full-auto capable rifles so that Killers can chase down a black teen or walk into a suburban Pittsburgh yoga studio and kill 3 women to get revenge for all those spurned advances, or attempt to assassinate Congresswoman Gaby Giffords, whiling killing a 9 year old girl and 8 others at an Arizona political rally, or gun down 3 Pittsburgh police officers who President Obama has sent to get their guns, or walk into a Binghamton New York Immigration Center and murder 13 or terrorize a Suburban Denver movie theater.

Ann Romney and "You People"

High Patrician Ann Romney, Wife Prime of Le Dauphin of The Plutocracy, Mitt Romney hath had enough of "You People".
"You People" shall not question your betters. "You People" can eat cake. "You People" don't know how hard it was to live only on Investments.
“We’ve given all you people need to know and understand about our financial situation and how we live our life,” the candidate’s wife added.
When the Romney's deem "you people" are worthy of having a voice in the concerns of the world she will let you know in 4 years. In the meantime, all "you people" need to do is shut up Vote Romney and allow yourself to be resigned to Wage Slavery and Corporate Bondage as Ann and the Plutocrats seek.

The Romney's like the underserving, thieving, Rich scum in America made their money on destruction and the hand-in-glove incestuous relationship the Rich have developed with the Government. Lady Ann Romney, who's never done a day's labor in her life, who's tax deductions for her Dressage Horses exceed the median American income, and her husband have profitted off of misery and destruction.

The Romney's live a life of leisure becaue Mitt became very successful and raiding companies, loading them up massive amounts of debt, and tearing off bleeding chunks from the carcass when he and his other vultures played fancy paper games with the "assets" (i.e. your job and your office building).

Mitt Romney is a master at legerdemain. But, Ann and Mitt have had enough of "you people". So, now as questions arise at how many millions they have actually stored in off-shore tax havens and how little taxes (Zero? Did the Romney's get taxpayer money from the government?) they've paid, and how much wealth they made during the Bush Republican Recession arise, Ann and Mitt will turn to the duped and ignorant conservative voter, who've never found an autocrat or plutocrat to whom they would not genuflect, to elevate them to the Presidency so that they may never worry about "You People" ever again.

The Evil Crimes of Mitt Romney, Bain of America, are they hidden in his Tax Returns?

“The Romney types, of course, are the ones who sign the front of the paycheck, and the Obama types are the ones who have spent their entire lives signing the back of them.” - the odious Michelle Malkin correctly points out that Barack Obama seeks to represent 99% of America while Romney has no such illusions.
Bain Capital was an aptly chosen name for Mitt Romney's Vulture Capitalist Firm of miscreants and job destroying anti-American scum bags.

Mitt Romney doesn't want to talk about his past crimes. Romney won't release his previous years tax records because they will indicate all manner of crimes.

And despite the claims Mitt Romney "retroactively retired" from Bain during it's worst years of Offshoring and Outsourcing, Mitt was in charge and was the architect of the worst of the Bane Capital Business model of making money by squeezing blood from Americans.
Romney has said he left Bain in 1999 to lead the winter Olympics in Salt Lake City, ending his role in the company. But public Securities and Exchange Commission documents filed later by Bain Capital state he remained the firm’s “sole stockholder, chairman of the board, chief executive officer, and president.”

Also, a Massachusetts financial disclosure form Romney filed in 2003 states that he still owned 100 percent of Bain Capital in 2002. And Romney’s state financial disclosure forms indicate he earned at least $100,000 as a Bain “executive” in 2001 and 2002, separate from investment earnings.
During the Republican Recession, Mitt Romney profited off of the misery conservative policies caused the American people. With his huge proliferation of off-shore Bank Accounts in the Cayman Islands, Luxembourg and Switzerland I wonder if Romney was one of the 52,000 Americans the Bush/Cheney Administration helped move Billions of American Tax Payer Dollars into secret UBS bank accounts.

So besides showing Romney, most likely, funnelled millions of dollars to his multiple foreign bank accounts his tax returns will also highlight that Romney made his money by destroying American companies and firing American workers.

Proving once again that under President Bush we had years of wage stagnation and wealth accumulation amongst the richest Americans just the way the Koch Brothers and the 1% want.

But, additionally Romney's hidden tax returns, while showing a callous disregard for America will also show a rank contempt for the Law.

His returns will probably show Romney committed Voter Fraud by continuing to vote in Massachusetts while claiming residency in another state. In 2010, Mitt Romney was supposedly living in his son’s unfinished basement in Belmont, Massachusetts.

At the time Mitt owned a $12.5 million home in La Jolla, Calif. and a $10 million home in New Hampshire’s Lake Winnipesaukee – but no home in the state he was once governor.

So, why was Mitt living in Tagg Romney's basement? Could it be Tagg's marriage is a sham and the woman living there was the (2nd? 3rd?) young wife of Mitt Romney? Ewww, that's just too gross and sleazy to consider...

I'm not a conservative smear merchant there's no need to concoct libels about Mitt Romney when his disgusting past of bullying, warmongering, chicken hawk, vulture capitalism should be enough to dissuade anyone for voting for him.

The sad fact is Mitt is the child of unearned wealth and white privilege. Mitt's father, George Romney, started the trend of releasing tax returns, which his chicken shit son refuses to do, and in almost every way was a far superior man than his spoiled, cowardly, bully of a son, who has only prospered because of the vast wealth and undeserved affirmative action for rich white people which he inherited. And in contrast President Obama has surpassed his father and risen and succeeded on the merits of his ability and determination.

Mitt Romney cowardly attacked Teresa Heinz-Kerry pouting that she didn't release her tax returns to Fox and Friends this morning. As is their wont Republicans always attack women. But, wow, Mitt is a sniveling little cry-baby.

But, the continued discussion about Mitt's secret financial past shows Conservatives are freaking out. There is obviously something incredibly damning in these returns that Romney is adamant he won't release them.
“The cost of not releasing the returns are clear,” said conservative columnist George Will, on ABC’s “This Week.” “Therefore, he must have calculated that there are higher costs in releasing them.”

On the ABC roundtable, Republican strategist Matthew Dowd had a similar take.

“There’s obviously something there, because if there was nothing there, he would say, ‘Have at it,’” Dowd said. “So there’s obviously something there that compromises what he said in the past about something.”
U and Us? UBS or Just BS?
Where in the World are Mitt Romney's Millions?

Representative Joe Walsh has Got My Vote

To the Honorable Representative Joe Walsh,

Sir, when you lose two legs in service to your country you can not talk about it all you want.

Sgt Grung_e_Gene, USMC Veteran
Now, of course, my taking personal umbrage at the way Joe Walsh blithely and repeatedly dismisses Tammy Duckworth really doesn't matter because conservatives are disgusting hypocrites, who not only give tacit approval, but vocal and electoral support to the despicable Joe Walsh. Mainly, because conservatives are so enthralled to the Republican Party that they hate Tammy Duckworth because she isn't the "right type" of Veteran (Allen West labeled her a Commie!!!!)

So, Joe Walsh undermining and insulting Veterans every time his chicken shit, cowardly, hasn't done anything for his constituents right-wing ass embodies everything modern conservatives love. He's loud, he's ignorant, his argument technique is to shout down those who point out he's wrong, he hates Veterans and Unions and seeks to eliminate the Middle Class in service to the Rich and powerful.

But, conservatives especially adore the way Joe Walsh treats women.

Joe Walsh, while too chicken shit cowardly to join the actual military, is a Right-Wing Lieutenant in the Republican Assault on Women.

So, no matter what vile dishonorable behavior Walsh engages in or how he continues to do nothing for his District, conservatives are going to vote for him. Walsh lays low the conservative lie of them being "Values voters"...

I'm Sure glad the Republicans keep telling me Global Warming is a Myth

Because if they didn't "catapult the propaganda" I might be worried about day after day of cross-country record breaking 100+ degree temperatures, Mars-like drought conditions and increasingly violent and bizzare wind and storm patterns.

But, as Paul Mulshine of the New Jersey Star Ledger points out, damn the evidence assailing your mind and body everyday, he doesn't believe in it so it's not true! Mulshine commits several Global Warming Denier tropes,
First scientists need to sort out all the possible causes of climate change in a system with an almost endless number of variable.
There's too many variables just stick your head up your own ass and 100 degrees won't feel hot!
[O]versimplified by the Al Gores of the world.
Did I mention Al Gore is fat? And Liberal!

It's part and parcel of the anti-science right-wing climate change deniers. There's too much to study so why study any of it! Al Gore!!! The Bible contradicts what's happening!

But, while most conservatives continue to allow themselves to be duped into violent foaming at the mouth incoherence at the mere mention that the climate is being destroyed, mainly by rich powerful Corporate negligence, regular Americans understand what is happening,
"We now start a month early in the maple season," says Vermont farmer Jason Gagne.

"Warm weather has meant earlier growth," says Jason Shaw, of Georgia Olive Farms.

"Pomegranates are very rare in our climate, but more people are planting them as temperatures increase, says Fred Bahnson of Asheville, North Carolina.
But, hey who are these farmers going to believe Republican bureaucrats safely ensconced in their Washington DC bubble or their lying eyes?

Fat Al Gore and President Obama are responsible for the Colorade Wildfires

And now in Colorado, President Obama has angered the Rain God with his improper Kenyan, Marxist Black Liberation Theology, Secret Muslin Roots!

Just like with the Gulf of Mexico Right-Wing liars are blaming the President for a disaster.

Either Michelle Malkin and R. Limpballs really do think President Obama is the magic N-word or they take solace in the fact conservatives are so stupid and vile they will believe any stupid propaganda they tell them.

Here's Malkin's take,
As Obama sightsees overhead in this key swing state and surrounds himself with first responders for campaign-ready photo-ops, his supporters on the ground are busy spewing excuses, attacks and death wishes on their political opponents.
These childish toxic morons who receive mounds of money and hours of airtime are the inheritors of the Raygun Tradition. That would be Ronnie Reagan who stated, "The nine most terrifying words in the english langauage are, 'I'm from the Government and I'm here to help.'"

The most stupefiying element is Malkin has a whole category called "envrio-nitwits" on her website. If fat Al Gore wasn't talking about Global Warming the heat and drought wouldn't have happened but since he did he caused those conditions!

Malkin's claims rest on this premise,
Ten years ago, the feds had a fleet of 44 firefighting planes. Today, the number is down to nine for the entire country.
"He wants to hire more government workers. He says we need more firemen... Did he not get the message of Wisconsin? It's time for us to cut back on government and help the American people." Oh darn, please ignore this because Mitt Romney said it...

However from the Denver Post comes this article; Officials disagee on ability of nation's old, thin air tanker fleet,
Heavy air tankers are not a panacea for fighting fires.

They don't extinguish blazes, but they can be used to strategically lay retardant on a fire line to suppress flames and slow the spread of a fire until ground crews arrive.

Tankers are most effective in the initial stages of fighting a wildland fire, able to keep small fires from growing large. Studies have shown that one or two tankers can be as effective as eight large helicopter tankers in the initial attack. In the past, a goal was to have tankers in strategic areas so that they could get to a newly reported fire within 20 to 30 minutes.

A 2009 report by the U.S. Department of Agriculture's Office of Inspector General estimated that 150 fires escaped initial attack in 2007 alone, (G_e_G note: When Obama was President!!!) costing the federal government up to $450 million more than it would have spent if the fires were stopped in their earliest stages.

It's impossible to know whether the High Park fire could have been stalled in its early stages on June 9 when the lightning-caused fire blew up.

First signs of the fire were called in to dispatchers about 6 a.m. A smaller single-engine air tanker, which can carry about 800 gallons of retardant, was over the fire by 9 a.m.
A heavy air tanker sent from Grand Junction was on the fire by noon, according to Steve Segin, spokesman for the Rocky Mountain Area Coordination Center. Windy, dry and hot conditions that day blew the fire out of control.

Officials say they are satisfied with the aerial resources attacking the fire, which include five heavy air tankers stationed at the Rocky Mountain Metropolitan Airport in Broomfield — two CV-580s from an agreement with the Canadian Interagency Forest Fire Centre and three P2Vs under contract through private companies.

The newest plane in the group is 51 years old. The oldest was built in 1953.
That last line would never be quoted by the likes of Michelle Malkin because that would indict Ronnie Raygun and George W(orst President Ever) Bush.

The sickening part of all this is the Republican Party has fought to destroy any Federal program to protect the environment because the Free Market does everything better. Because Fracking Corporations will be better stewards of the lands. Because Global Warming doesn't exist. Because Eric Cantor will not allow Government money for disaster sites until accompanying cuts in Medicaid are passed.

But, Republicans and conservatives miss no opportunity to be vile fiends willing to stoop too any level and willing to exploit any tragedy.
