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.

Dear Joseph,
thank you for commenting on my blog. I can't put my words as well as you into a blog, in regards to politics. But I so so agree about Palin ( and she is a journalism major?! Hah ) I love Huffington Post, it is my daily bread and Youtube as well. Have you seen the 10 min " McCain Bashing Clip" at the Waldorf Astora? It is hillarious. Obama's writers did an exellent funny speech. I can understand now ( well somewhat..), how some people here in the USA, can speak in tongues, shout and dance when they prais their lord, because I almost feel as extatic when I hear Obama speaking. He makes me smile, he assures me there will be a change,thats we all have to work together. He will not just be the president of the United States - no he will be a NEW World Leader! We can only hope, the RePOOPlicans wont steal the election again as seen with Al Gore.
Thanks again for stopping by :)

Joe,

Wonderful post. The politics of hatred, fear, and divisiveness have put us down the wrong path for too long.

I am making every effort to stay focused on the issues and to educate my friends.

I've been blogging in an attempt to provide a counterpoint to the media's daily fixation with the superficial. I thank you for doing the same!

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.

your just another idiot liberal,all dems do is take,take your money and rights.palin is a governor,obama couldn't run a fruit stand,rather have her run the country than a white hating muslim

Good article, it's truly a shame the Republicans will never get their heads out of the sand and realize that we Democrats really do care more about the country and really do have better answers to the problems this country faces. The politics of hatred and fear will continue to be used because they don't have any answers to the problems. When all you want to do is get rid of government, how can you govern effectively?

Subject: Obama vs McCain

I found this interesting!


TAXES -- V E R Y I M P O R T A N T!!
If Snopes.com is always correct, then there is a huge difference in what these campaigns are saying and the truth..

Check this out. Go to Snopes.com and in the SEARCH box, type 'Proposed Tax Changes'. The Snopes.com site researches all the urban legends or email scams floating around in cyberspace.
Check it out, it's interesting and factual.

INTERESTING DATA JUST RECEIVED ON TAXES
This is something you should be aware of so you don't get blind-sided. This is really going to catch a lot
of families off guard. It should make you worry.

Proposed changes in taxes after 2008 General election:
CAPITAL GAINS TAX

MCCAIN
0% on home sales up to $500,000 per home (couples) McCain does not propose any change in existing
home sales income tax.

OBAMA
28% on profit from ALL home sales

How does this affect you? If you sell your home and make a profit, you will pay 28% of your gain on taxes. If you are heading toward retirement and would like to down-size your home or move into a retirement community, 28% of the money you make from your home will go to taxes. This proposal will adversely affect the elderly who are counting on the income from their homes as part of their retirement income.

DIVIDEND TAX

MCCAIN 15% (no change)

OBAMA 39.6%

How will this affect you? If you have any money invested in stock market, IRA, mutual funds,
college funds, life insurance, retirement accounts, or anything that pays or reinvests dividends, you will now be paying nearly 40% of the money earned on taxes if Obama become president. The experts predict that 'higher tax rates on dividends and capital gains would crash the stock market yet do absolutely nothing to cut the deficit.

INCOME TAX

MCCAIN (no changes)
Single making 30K - tax $4,500
Single making 50K - tax $12,500
Single making 75K - tax $18,750
Married making 60K- tax $9,000
Married making 75K - tax $18,750
Married making 125K - tax $31,250

OBAMA
(reversion to pre-Bush tax cuts)
Single making 30K - tax $8,400
Single making 50K - tax $14,000
Single making 75K - tax $23,250
Married making 60K - tax $16,800
Married making 75K - tax $21,000
Married making 125K - tax $38,750

Under Obama your taxes will more than double! How does this affect you? No explanation needed. This is pretty straight forward.

INHERITANCE TAX

MCCAIN 0% (No change, Bush repealed this tax)

OBAMA Restore the inheritance tax

How does this affect you? Many families have lost businesses, farms and ranches, and homes that have
been in their families for generations because they could not afford the inheritance tax. Those willing their assets to loved ones will only lose them to these taxes.

NEW TAXES BEING PROPOSED BY OBAMA

* New government taxes proposed on Homes that are more than 2400 square feet.
* New gasoline taxes (as if gas weren't high enough already)
* New taxes on natural resources consumption (heating gas, water, electricity)
* New taxes on retirement accounts and last but not least....
* New taxes to pay for socialized medicine so we can receive the same level of medical care as other
Third-world countries!!!

Obviously there is some extreme liberal bias drowning this blog. Despite the fact that many of you are extreme liberals and, quoted, think "that the neo-fascists party is the party that loves America. But what she [Bachmann] forgot to say is that they love to f*ck it up." And as Thunter said that "it's truly a shame the Republicans will never get their heads out of the sand and realize that we Democrats really do care more about the country and really do have better answers to the problmes this country faces." The thing is what exaclty do you have to back your argument because all I really read into it is surface level assumptions and accusations without real evidence. Are you really forming your own opinion from a personal depth of knowledge in politics or are you getting biased information about a republican party from the media or just following a friend, because surely neither is party is perfect and the way you are talking it is as if democrats have the answer to save the world. If you aren't afraid to look into both sides visit http://mypoliticalinquiry.blogspot.com/ and see both sides. Then after throughly looking into the broad spectrum and can still prove me wrong that there are weakness and benefits in both, then you can continue to bash "right winged" party.
