Step "RIGHT" Up and Get Your Ticket, No Waiting No Lines, Step"RIGHT" Up

Good morning all, I have to say I really enjoyed the outcome of the the neo-fascist congresswomen from Minnesota Michele Bachmann's (R) poll numbers, before she opened her mouth (see last post) she had a +13 point lead in the Minnesota 6th district race to a little known contender Mr. Tinklenberg (D), but as a direct result of her jaw flapping lies, she managed to fill the sails of Tinklenbergs ship with a sudden $900,000 in contributions, not only that she has fallen -3% behind him in her bid for re-election. You can see this at the latest polling realclearpolitics.com This all goes to a much bigger point which I've decided to share with all of you. If you are reading this post you can scroll down and see the title and or contents of my last post. I received some responses online and since I post my true identity and email I also receive a few comments via email. I just want to share a couple of the comments that are negative. I really don't mind the negative comments because if they are thoughtful or insightful or just plain civil, I will learn something from them after all, I am in most cases just sharing my humble opinion with you, unless I am stating data that needs to be backed up by facts, then I will always do my homework before putting my foot into my mouth so that I can at least report accurate information. So here are the comments I am speaking of, and they will tie into the later points of this blog post:

Anonymous Jason said...Dear Joseph,


This right wing nut would like to ask a few questions. When it comes to really screwing it up (the economy) you should ask your party that question. It was your party lead by Frank, Dodd, and many othes that blocked reform efforts by Bush and the Republicans and Fannie Mae and Mac. It was not tax cuts that leads us down this road. It is maddening to me that Progressives are so quick to want to control other people money and eventually speack(Fairness Doctrine). Us Neo-Fascists guess just don't get it. And btw pinhead I hope the election is stolen by ACORN registering 10,000's of false registerations. Go luck the next 4 years I belive that some of you will writing on conservative blogs after your "chosen one" has literally screwed this country over.

Now I could be totally of base, but I hate to judge people when they are emoting their feelings when they may not be in a rational state of mind. So what I want to do is to list some of the hard core republican and conservatives that where brought up to be right wingers, and the fact that they are now going to support Obama, they have no motive other than to make this decision based on their intellect and the fact that they have the feeling that this candidate of their choice has a firm grasp of the challenges that lie ahead and that he is their best bet to salvage a nation that has been economically destroyed, militarily on its last leg, hasn't taken care of it's veterans, has let it's fellow Americans down, (Katrina) not to mention the complete ineptness of the two wars and the thousands of lives they have taken and the trillions of dollars they have wasted all in the name of oil and defense contracts. So I am only going to mention a few because there are many more prominent Republicans voting for Obama than I am going to list this morning. Keep in mind that these Republicans are all on the record, I didn't just make them up for the uniformed visitors. Former Secretary of State Colin Powell and conservative talk-show host Michael Smerconish are hardly alone among Republicans supporting Barack Obama. A surprising number of recognizable Republicans are reportedly supporting Obama the Democratic nominee: Julie Nixon Eisenhower, Rep. Wayne Gilchrest of Maryland, former Rep. Jim Leach of Iowa, former Sen. Lincoln Chafee of Rhode Island, Bush fund-raiser Rita Hauser, former National Review publisher Wick Allison, former National Review columnist Christopher Buckley (son of William F.), and former Reagan-Bush lawyer and pro-life legal scholar Doug Kmiec. (Even Jenna Bush, President Bush's daughter, told Larry King she's undecided.) Also today Fairbanks, Alaska's Republican Mayor Jim Whitaker endorsed Obama. Former Massachusetts Gov. William Weld, a Republican, and former Bush press secretary Scott McClellen. Tom Bernstein who went to Yale University with Bush and co-owned the Texas Rangers baseball team with him. Oregon's First District GOP Congressional Nominee Joel Haugen. Reagan policy adviser Bruce Bartlett. Delbert Spurlock, who was Assistant Secretary of the Army under Reagan. Tony Campell, a former GOP congressional candidate from Maryland, Douglas Kmiec, a Republican who served in the Justice Department under President Ronald Reagan. Dorothy Danforth Burlin, a lawyer who is the daughter of former U.S. Senator John Danforth. Susan Eisenhower, president of the Eisenhower Group. "It's been a very difficult thing for me because I've never endorsed a Democrat before...but sometimes in life you come to a juncture where it's very clear the national interest trumps party discipline - Jim Leach" A while back I wrote about Lou Thieblemont, mayor of Camp Hill, Pennsylvania and lifelong Republican switching parties so he could vote for Barack Obama in Pennsylvania. Lincoln Chaffe, Here is what the only Republican senator who opposed the war said when he endorsed Obama, "I believe Senator Obama is the best candidate to restore American credibility, to restore our confidence to be moral and to bring people together to solve the complex issues such as the economy, the environment and global stability," Douglas Kmiec served in Reagan's DoJ but he's supporting Obama. Today I endorse Barack Obama for president of the United States. I believe him to be a person of integrity, intelligence, and genuine good will. I take him at his word that he wants to move the nation beyond its religious and racial divides and that he wants to return the United States to that company of nations committed to human rights. Brink Lindsey of the Cato Institute, a libertarian free market think tank in Washington, said he was “seriously thinking of pulling the lever” for Obama in November. Although he is lukewarm about some of his policies - particularly on free trade and tax and spending - he believes that “the post-partisan, post cultural war rhetoric of Barack Obama is deeply appealing”. There is also the question of pay-back for eight years of Republican mismanagement. “There is a good chunk of people, like myself, who believe the Republicans ought to go down in flames,” he said. “They have made a complete hash of things and they deserve to pay.” Former Massachusetts Gov. William Weld, a Republican, and editor Christopher Hitchens have also endorsed Barack Obama. So with this information I hope to justify to the people that write those racist and hateful comments that they need to look at the big picture. Republicans with long respected records of loyalty to a party can change because they feel insulted by what they have been handed, I think all of these people are smarter than the commentators that addressed me think they are, and they are certainly smarter than me. Oh! and I almost forgot, CC Goldwater is on that list she is the daughter of the iconic Republican Barry Goldwater.

Hatred, Fear and Division

I guess there is no getting around the right wing political playbook without those good old reliable never fail standbys for substance and issues, instead they give you hatred, fear and division. Yesterday was a day that really made me take a deep breath and then let out a long sigh, not of relief as you might imagine. No this was a sigh of disgust and disdain. What may you ask could have gotten you so riled up Joseph. Well let me tell you what it was. When I heard the disgusting low life remarks uttered from Minnesota congresswomen Michele Bachmann (R) on the tube today she sickened me. Now I have heard her a few other times on various political talk shows and I have never really heard anything positive or issue oriented from her foul mouth in the past, just the usual neo-con talking points which after 8 years of hearing them are kind of bearable.

So today I guess she decided to cross the line of good judgment and jumped face first into a pool of stinking crap. Bachmann's incoherent raves that she is demanding that the media and the justice department start investigating the liberals in congress that hate this country, she said they are there, she is certain they are anti American and the truth should come out. This foolish uninformed women is full of vitriol and it is people like herself, when their words are heard, that cast dispersions on our great country. Amid all the problems that our nation is facing militarily, economically and socially, she is on the tube spewing lies about something she know nothing about, and that about is patriotism. She has no answers for any of the problems facing most Americans, so instead of addressing issues she would rather invoke hatred by saying that only her right wing neo-fascist party is the party that loves America. What she forgot to add to that phrase is that they love to f*ck it up. She is an embarrassment to this country when she blurts such lies at the same time that the blood of the democrat and republican and the independent soldiers are soaking the sands in the Mideast for the Bush and Chenney oil corporations and defense contractors. She is a blight onto herself as is Palin who espoused that today she is campaigning in the small patriotic towns and so forth that love this country and so on by golly. These are the people that love America as to be the patriotic people of our nation from the rural patriotic areas dog- gone-it. Let me just say this about Palin I'll make it short and sweet, to infer that the people that go to her and McCain rallies are the only folks that love this country and not any others, makes her divisive and hateful as she sounds, and to steal the words of Bill O'rielly, and John McCain she "my friends" is a true pinhead.

Who Really Supports our Troops ?

Top of the morning to you all. I am always amazed how well propaganda works. It has served both parties in the past and seems to be an important tool that enables one party to garner the vote over the other. Fox News, Rush Limbaugh, Ann Coulter, Hannity, Bill O'Rielly, Dick Morris you know I can go on forever but I think you get the gist of this. The right wing is always wagging the flag and painting everyone that is against the Iraq war as unpatriotic and we don't support the troops and we hate America. Well they then go on to say how the military votes republican as if the military was a monolithic group of undiversified human beings.

Although it may be true that high ranking officers and retirees may lean right the majority of the armed services are in fact made up of many minority blocs of NCO's and that includes the enlisted men and women of lower ranks that have more life altering problems than their civilian counterparts. Now election time is nearing and if the veterans of the past and present haven't had your respect or support this is now the time to stand behind them, because they really need you as much as any other combat vet needed the right vote and the people to stand behind them from any war. I will provide you with a link that will in a matter of one or two minutes time enable you to check the record of your senators and congressmen or woman's votes pertaining directly to taking care of our veterans. You owe it to them and to yourself to make an informed decision. You are going to be surprised when you see the truth about who really supports our troops. VETERANS REPORT CARD.

Palin and Biden Debate Dog-gone-it!

After the VP debate most of my gut feelings about Palin and Biden were confirmed, but I went on the Huffingpost to read Arianna Huffington's post blog analysis. She was in attendance at all women high profile gathering at the Four Seasons in Aviara, CA. The Fortune's Most Powerful Women Summit hosted by ExxonMobil, they had over a couple of hundred attendees of mixed ideology. According to Arianna the response by the women there was not very good. So I did respond to her blog with the following comment.

Dear Arianna,

On my own blog I have held back from criticizing Palin even with the revelations of her interviews with Gibson and Couric, to back me up, just so I would not be accused of sexism. I am hoping that in one of your future blogs that you would take the time to explain just what it is that makes female republican pundits, politicians and newswomen defend Palin. How is it that they are not embarrassed by her lack of common knowledge and her Bushianic mannerisms. I think that Palins' performance tonight and the description of your event tonight among women voters has enabled me to express my views without concerns of sexism. Thanks for your insight.

Regards,

Joseph

Well here is my take on McCains choice for VP. I think she is on the same plain as George Bush.
Now you must realize that this woman has excited the republican party, that she has galvanized the religious right wing, and has given hope to her ticket and that she is being defended by many high profile and long respected neo-cons. I just need to know how these people let idealism trump what they are actually hearing from Palins mouth. When I watch and listen to the nonsense that she speaks makes me want to think that this cannot be happening. I mean doesn't this really show the mentality of the people on the right that are supporting and defending her political chops. They did the same for Bush for seven years so I guess that I should not act so surprised. I mean the republican party is in the state of denial that is the only way any rational person would be able to accept what they are being handed.

Christina Applegate & Oprah

I was channel surfing last night and as I was clicking away at the remote as if it were a dollar bill dispenser I saw Oprah introducing her featured guest Christina Applegate. Knowing that she has been fighting breast cancer I stayed tuned in to see how she was feeling. I was glad that I made the decision to watch the program.
It really enlightened me to some of the hard realities that women have to face on a daily basis, and it was touching to hear Christina talk about her battle and her choice to have both breast removed.

I was riveted by her positive attitude and her frankness to bare herself emotionally in front of a live audience and millions of viewers. The statistics that were spoken about were staggering, I believe they said that every 20 minutes 5 women are diagnosed with breast cancer and that about 40,000 women per year lose the battle. Well the reason that I decided to write about this on my blog which is mostly political, is that I also learned from the Christina and Oprah back and forth that the reason Christina decided to have both breast removed is that although removing the one breast would have put her on the road to recovery, she tested positive the breast cancer gene. Another thing that I learned from the show was that a mammogram does not always show if there is cancer present due to the density of a woman's breast, and after a mammogram a women should inquire about the density of her breast so that if she has density, the other option to make sure she is cancer free is an MRI.

How is this political you may ask? Well the insurance companies won't pay for an MRI for women and they also won't pay to find out if a woman is carrying the breast cancer gene. Now this no doubt is legal but immoral because of the Millions of dollars that the insurance lobbyist are paying to both parties. This is something that you can do something about. If you have the time to read this blog, don't waste any time, call or write or email your senators and congresspersons, repeatedly and get your friends involved, this is a horrible injustice, because it forces women who are not rich to not be able to take all the appropriate measures to put prevention on their side. I implore you to demand, that congress and the senate address the insurance industry to solve this situation, and that it should be mandated that greedy over paid insurance companies give all women an equal chance to prevent this traumatic disease, by covering these types of life saving tests. Please don't be afraid to come down on your elected representatives, tell them up front to stop taking money from the insurance lobbyist and if they continue to do so you wont vote for them, look after all they work for you and they should represent your interests not the interest of giant insurance conglomerates. To all the special guest on that show thanks for this information.
