At the End of the Right Wing Rainbow

During President Obama's major health care speech on Wednesday, South Carolina Rep. Joe Wilson (R) yelled out "You lie!" when President Obama said the legislation would not mandate coverage for undocumented immigrants.

This evening I let my emotions get the best of me when listening to the President's remarks regarding the coverage of illegal immigrants in the health care bill. While I disagree with the President's statement, my comments were inappropriate and regrettable. I extend sincere apologies to the President for this lack of civility.

What else would you expect from an ignorant lying right wing nut job redneck congressman from  South Carolina, who couldn't control his hatred and rage during Obama's speech to a joint session of Congress in the House of Representatives.

Even though he was the one that lied about the proposal, he fails to admit it in his apology.

The non-partisan organization FactCheck.org has debunked the claim that health care reform would mandate coverage for illegal immigrants.

False: Illegal Immigrants Will Be Covered

One Republican congressman issued a press release claiming that "5,600,000 Illegal Aliens May Be Covered Under Obamacare," and we’ve been peppered with queries about similar claims. They’re not true. In fact, the House bill (the only bill to be formally introduced in its entirety) specifically says that no federal money would be spent on giving illegal immigrants health coverage:
H.R. 3200: Sec 246 — NO FEDERAL PAYMENT FOR UNDOCUMENTED ALIENS
Nothing in this subtitle shall allow Federal payments for affordability credits on behalf of individuals who are not lawfully present in the United States.
Also, under current law, those in the country illegally don’t qualify for federal health programs. Of interest: About half of illegal immigrants have health insurance now, according to the nonpartisan Pew Hispanic Center, which says those who lack insurance do so principally because their employers don’t offer it.
"Misleading GOP Health Care Claims" July 23

It is very obvious to me how the right wing politicians avoided the real issues and challenges that have to be addressed in order to overcome the problems to put health care in order. Instead they have chosen once again to insult the collective intelligence of we the people.

They did this by misinforming the people with bullshit.  Saying that health reform would be the start of Death panels, federally funded abortion, forced sex change operations, insuring illegals, rationed health care, government takeover of all health care, socialism, communism just to name a few.

Instead of stepping up and helping to solve health care problems they (the right) made up propaganda to instill once again the only thing they know anything about, "fear" into the people that really didn't take that much to make them believers of this nonsense, they already hate the left and Obama to begin with and they picked on the elderly for the obvious reasons, they are the easiest to upset and to scare.

Tort reform which is a republican idea, in my mind is a good tool to help lower health care.  I also think that cross state buying of insurance is another good right wing idea.  Congress has included 161 other republican amendments  in the package  I don't know them all, are to be part of this bill.

It is time to change health care, it is time to care about the families being devastated by health issues, this is not the time for our representatives to be worried about insurance company profits.  It is time for both parties to stop taking money from big Insurance and Pharma. 


It is our time to be represented by the people we elected to help us. Or else we will all end up in that dirty little shit house at the end of the rainbow.

In the Jungle the Mighty Jungle the Lion Sleeps Tonight

" To whom much is given much is expected."

Ted Kennedy, the man upon whose shoulders was foisted the Kennedy family for better or worse.  In spite of all his flaws he was rock solid.  The fact that he faced his demons head on was remarkable.

He could have easily folded up his tent and gone away yet he withstood the barrage of blows after experiencing the deaths of his three older brothers.

While a young boy he lost his brother Joe to WW I I, then as we all know that ideological assassins killed his brother John and then Robert.  He also lost his sister Eunice Kennedy Shriver just a few weeks ago.

When he drove his car off of Dike's Bridge and the resulting accident took the life of Mary Jo Kopechne, one would think that such a regrettable action would have certainly doomed this man, leaving him to broken to carry the unimaginable tragic burdens still to come at him and his family.

In spite of his personal frailties and surviving a plane crash, he still managed 47 years of untiring and unwavering service to his country.  He worked very hard for the less fortunate and he was well respected by his opposition.

George H.W. Bush, the 41st president of the United States, released a statement early Wednesday morning on the death of Senator Edward Kennedy.

"While we didn’t see eye-to-eye on many political issues through the years, I always respected his steadfast public service - so much so, in fact, that I invited him to my library in 2003 to receive the Bush Award for Excellence in Public Service," President Bush said. "Ted Kennedy was a seminal figure in the United States Senate - a leader who answered the call to duty for some 47 years, and whose death closes a remarkable chapter in that body’s history."

Kennedy was the first American to receive the Bush Award. In November 2003, the Massachusetts Democrat received the honor from the former president at the Texas A&M-based library.

"We are not here to celebrate a partisan ideology," Mr. Bush said that evening, "but rather, the steadfast public service of a seminal figure in the U.S. Senate, and by extension, his remarkable family."

The widow of another president, Ronald Reagan, was one of the first to speak out from the Republican Party.

“Given our political differences, people are sometimes surprised by how close Ronnie and I have been to the Kennedy family,” Nancy Reagan said in a statement from Los Angeles.

“But Ronnie and Ted could always find common ground, and they had great respect for one another. In recent years, Ted and I found our common ground in stem cell research, and I considered him an ally and a dear friend. I will miss him.”

I too will miss Ted Kennedy, if you look at any piece of legislation over the past 50 years and if it had anything to do with the advancement of civil rights, education, equal pay, health or economic issues for the everyday man and woman it will also have his name attached to it.

Thanks for all that you have contributed to this country not only in mind but in blood too.  "RIP" Ted.

United We Fall and Divided We Stand

                             FIND YOUR SPINE
No I didn't get my  "title" an age old adage upside down  and wrong.  Sadly it is the state that we find our nation in,  and its people are headed towards an actual physical clash of civil disobedience.

I usually try to highlight the differences between ideologies not by pointing fingers but by trying to hold both sides accountable.

However I feel in this instance when one side keeps pushing it is only going to be a matter of time before the other side pushes back.  That is if they ever get a spine.

As usual its the neo-con chickenhawks in our society fueling the ignorant with lies and misinformation to stoke hatred and fear, for their own corrupt corporate gains and to take care of their contributors and to fuck their constituents.  Instead of arming the right wing with policy talking points, and legitimate information to counter the left they (leaders and spokespersons from the right) are arming them with the encouragement of violence and subversion.  Counting again on the inability of a certain segment of society to know the difference between a disservice or a service. 

When people are shouting out "keep government out of my medicare",  you know they are ignorant dumb asses marching to the orders of O'Reilly and Limbaugh.

They call for them to compare the leaders of the left to Hitler, they preach to them the ills of socialism, and lie to them saying that part of health reform entails the government to euthanize the elderly.

When people are supporting the continuation of the preexisting clause in health insurance and the escalating costs of even the shitiest HMO,  you can be sure that they are ill informed especially when they actually think that the government wants to euthanize them, and that Obama is not an American citizen.  If you believe in any of the things mentioned in this paragraph then there is a good chance that we will remain a divided country from here on out.

Hannity, Beck, and Limbaugh to name a few along with some elected officials from the right are on a daily crusade to cause physical harm to elected officials from the left and in general anyone that doesn't buy into their sick version of conservatism.

They and others like them are taking the principles of conservatism and are distorting the truth about matters that will help all Americans.  They like to hide behind the shield of conservatism while spewing hatred and hoping for the worst possible outcome of left wing policies without any regard for America or Americans.

They are no better than the Islamic terrorist that hide behind their religion to propel their agenda at any cost too.

When Bush and company had to deal with 9/11 the whole country rallied behind him including the left, not to mention most of the world.

Now with America facing two wars, rising unemployment, record home foreclosures, a collapsing economy on the brink of a deep recession or depression.  Where was the support from the right?

Maybe it is time for this country to split.  I am certain that I don't want to live in a country where the ideals of this type of conservatism are shoved down my throat.

Whatever happened to the Eisenhower Republicans? Now that was principled conservatism that you could live with.

Beyond the Horizon of Scandal

Big deal, its just another sex scandal.  I guess if you look at these types of behavior and take them at their face value then so what.

Yes this would be the case if you are a selfish insensitive person that has a mind overwrought with ego and fueled by power and greed.

It is fodder for the pundits, and since they think they are not victims of the sexual scandals perpetrated by politicians, its accepted by the ever apathetic public as  nothing more than business as usual.

There is never any mention of the victims of these scandals, and the public at large remain just to stupid to realize that they have just been victimized themselves.

Since there has been an overwhelming plethora of scandals involving men as the aggressor I will write this post in the masculine gender, mind you I know women also do these same things, but not in the realm of politics, in this milieu it has been for the past 200 years an all boys club.

Without further ado let me introduce you to the victims of these blowhards.  The first to suffer are the immediate families that are through no fault of their own forced to swallow this betrayal.  To a loyal wife and her children it is mentally devastating, and sometimes it even affects the physical health and well being of a wife and her children depending on their age.  The extended families of mothers and fathers, aunts and uncles, grandma and grandpa these are just a few more of the shamed and hurt members of the family that are victims.

In some cases these men chose patronizing prostitutes, then shamelessly parade their innocent wife onto a TV station to stand there and act supportive after being battered.

Others chose to be more discrete and have sexual affairs while their wives lay in a hospital bed fighting cancer.  Yet some tried to have a homosexual tryst with strangers in public restrooms.

Some chose to abandon their public office for weeks at a time and run to another continent then profess publicly, true love, not to his wife but to a mistress. How humiliating!

While some even donked their own close associates wife, then paid hush money, dragging his parents into his lurid life.

Others while on America's dime tried to lure young underage pages into homosexuality. 

Betraying your own flesh and blood and the woman that carried your child is a sin in of itself.  It stands alone and shows all the world to see that these men do not even have any self respect, yet alone respect for their own children.  Think for a moment who is closer to you than your child?  While supposedly serving the public they engaged in a cabal of deceit, shame and dishonor and they scarred their victims forever.

What makes you think that a man that is spineless and lacks integrity and puts himself above his own wife and children and even above his own parents cares about you or your needs?  You are nothing to these types of men, and you have to be an idiot to think that your needs are on their minds, and you would be a dolt to lend further support and vote for them, are you like those people?  Would you dishonor your family too?

You cannot cheat on your own flesh and blood and destroy their hearts and souls, and then in the same breath care about the needs of your constituency that happen to be total strangers.  An oxymoron to say the least.

It is time that we the people demand that in order to run for public office that candidates take profile tests along with some psychological and IQ tests to assure that they possess some intellect, and that they reach certain profile benchmarks.

The higher the office the harder the tests.  From what I have been exposed to about our public officials and not just about sex scandals, but about governing in general there are some very scary and incompetent people in who's hands our destiny lies.

Now America Reaps What Bush and Cheney Have Sown


When I heard the disturbing news Tuesday morning that two American journalists had been sentenced to 12 years of hard labor by a North Korean court for the "crimes" of illegally entering the country and committing "hostile acts." We can only hope that the reclusive, bizarre and barbaric leader of North Korea, Kim Jong-il, is putting on a show to get the attention of the rest of the world, that's what he seems thrive on, and that the two TV reporters, Laura Ling and Euna Lee, will be allowed to return home soon.

So as we all hope for the safety of the two American journalists being held in North Korea, and as we support actions to help secure their release, let us not forget that what makes the United States the country we are all proud to live in is that we stand for the very freedoms not available in North Korea, and that we oppose the kind of abuses used by that nation, and is currently perpetuating on two of our innocent citizens.

But the problem before us is we didn't exactly think that way for about the past eight years while Bush and Cheney ran the show, and kept their followers is lockstep.

I also read about Lakhdar Boumediene, and the truly disturbing story of what happened to him after the 9/11 attacks. An Algerian man living with his wife and two children in Sarajevo, Bosnia, he was working for the Red Crescent in October 2001 when he was arrested and charged with conspiring to blow up the American and British embassies in the city. An investigation revealed no evidence of his involvement in any plot, so a Bosnian judge ordered him released, but the Bush & Chenney administration intervened, and in January 2002 he was shackled and flown to Guantanamo Bay.

He was the name plaintiff in the 2008 U.S. Supreme Court case that, in a rebuke to the Bush policy, found that detainees had a right to challenge their detention in court, and a federal judge (a Republican appointed by Bush) later found that the evidence against him was a joke and ordered his immediate release. France agreed and accepted him, and he is now living as a free man in that country, reunited with his family.

In the end, Boumediene was held for 7 1/2 years in Guantanamo, during which time, he says, he was tortured. He says he was kept up for 16 days straight, beaten, and forced to run while chained to guards, and if he could not keep up, he was dragged until his body was bloody and bruised. Soon after he began a hunger strike, he had food tubes put up his nose and, he alleges, soldiers would purposely poke IV needles into the wrong parts of his arm, just to induce pain.

Guess what the one thing that was never done to him was? Nobody asked if he was ever involved in a plot to blow up the U.S.A. and British embassies in Sarajevo. Rather, all he was repeatedly asked about was his connections to al-Qaeda and to Osama bin-Laden and his answer for 7 and a half years was still the same, a resounding no.

Now we have two Americans at the hands of a Korean madman, who unfortunately has gotten his Q's from Cheney and Bush. Hopefully he won't be as stupid as Cheney and Bush, but he only need say to us, look what you Americans have been doing for the past 8 years so don't tell me who I cant capture and don't tell me how I have to treat my prisoners.

The part that is problematic for me is that all the while the Bush administration had been repeatedly warned, by Generals, and POW's even John McCain just to mention a few, not to break the rules of the Geneva Convention for the sake of protecting Americans.

But these two had plans of their own, and listened to nobody.  Now two lonely, helpless frightened American women may pay the price. 

This North Korean jack off has only to point his finger at the past administrations actions and pretty much do whatever he wants.

If we would have taken the moral high ground in the first place we would have a leg to stand on in this argument. One thing we can't effectively do is stand up and order some one else to act lawfully, when we didn't.

I'm sure Bush and Cheney will figure a way to blame this on the Clinton or the Obama administration. Cheney just sickens me, we have much to pay for the sins of this past administration and it will take quite a while before the healing begins.

Neo-Con Lasts 6 Seconds of Waterboarding

There was never any doubt in my mind that waterboarding is torture, plain and simple.  I have seen it done in Vietnam and I knew instantaneously how cruel this act was.

Mancow is a conservative radio talk show host who in the past has repeatedly ridiculed the idea that waterboarding rose to the hieghts of torture.

To prove his point he volunteered to let himself be waterboarded in front of media camera's.  He changed his tune about the subject in a quick but terrifying six seconds.

Listen to the man as he has to recant his right wing belief that  waterboarding was not torture.  Proving as most sane people already know that Cheney is a fraud and a liar that has cost Americans their lives.

In contrast to submerging the head face-forward in water, waterboarding precipitates an almost immediate gag reflex. The technique does not inevitably cause lasting physical damage. It can cause extreme pain, dry drowning, damage to lungs, brain damage from oxygen deprivation, other physical injuries including broken bones due to struggling against restraints, lasting psychological damage or, ultimately, death.  Adverse physical consequences can start manifesting months after the event; psychological effects can last for years.

Quasimodo Wouldn't Speak at Notre Dame, Should Obama?

I wonder why Notre Dame is receiving so much flak for inviting Obama to speak at a commencement?  Shouldn't these people be protesting against the colleges practice of pervasive discrimination.

Twenty five percent of the yearly enrollment at Notre Dame is set aside for the children of the alumni.  These legacy preferences allow entrances not based on merit but on ancestry and cronyism.  Ask Quasimodo he will certainly tell you a thing or two about discrimination.

Face Up To It

When the answer to a question that is being asked everyday is staring you right in the face, rather than recognizing that fact, it seems better to deny the obvious and ugly truth of the matter.

The question being raised by all the talking heads on the cable news soap programs, and even by legitimate major TV news organizations, by newspapers and blogs left and right, during this month has been who is the face of the Republican party?

In spite of how apparent the answer is,  the question is usually responded to with stock answers, like Sarah Palin, Rush Limbaugh or Steele the Republican party chairman, or by some other meaningless blather.

All the while the real face of the Republican party Dick Cheney can be seen crusading on radio and television talk shows from the Dakota's to the west coast at least once or twice a week if not more.  His need to come out of the closet after eight years of law breaking and shredding the constitution, in the name of the constitution is most remarkable.

While avoiding interviews that may pose a threat to his far right talking points.  He manages to defend his past illicit tactics and has no problem breaking precedent to denigrate Obama any chance he gets during his propaganda puppet shows.  Appearing with soft ballers and mostly right wing hosts and on fox he avoids any rebuttals or follow ups, and gets away with saying whatever he wants, doesn't matter if its true or false, he speaks with total impunity.   

It is my opinion that the true hardcore right wing kneels before Cheney.  I say this with confidence because the numbers back me up.

When asked in a recent poll of Americans only 23% would identify themselves as Republicans.  More than 23% of Americans believe in ghosts. This is about the same percent of the Republican party that is loyal to only the far right, and Cheney is a neo cons dream. The Life and Career of Dick Cheney

It is also my opinion right now, Cheney an American politician who was sworn into office to uphold the constitution and help his fellow man, allegedly he has easily surpassed even the treachery of Nixon.  In time history will change this from merely my opinion to a fact. Cheney the Vice Precedency 

For a clear perspective on Dick Cheney click on the links above, they are very well narrated and informative slides, they are also very short and get right to the points of this post.

Water Boarding for Dollars

I always wanted to post my opinion about Sean Hannity. The reason that I never went ahead with my plan was that I knew my opinion would be about the same as it would be for any far right fundamentalist. To some I would be preaching to the choir and to others I would be a biased left wing socialist. So I will let Sean himself let you know what kind of a person he is by watching this short clip.

America's Fix All, Lawyers, Guns and Money



Written By Warren Zevon

I went home with the waitress
The way I always do
How was I to know
She was with the
Russians, too?

I was gambling in Havana
I took a little risk
Send lawyers, guns and money
Dad, get me out of this, hyeah

I'm the innocent bystander
Somehow I got stuck
Between the rock
and a hard place
And I'm down on my luck
Yes I'm down on my luck
Well I'm down on my luck

I'm hiding in Honduras
I'm a desperate man
Send lawyers, guns and money
The shit has hit the fan

All right
Send lawyers, guns and money
Huh!

America's Looming Moral Bankruptcy

WARNING VERY DISTURBING AND GRAPHIC PHOTOS

WARNING VERY DISTURBING AND GRAPHIC PHOTOS
How embarrassing and degrading can we be ? When did our moral senses take leave of our souls ?

Americans fail to protest over the hideousness of wars, that continues to allow events displayed in the photos above to be perpetrated against brave American men and women, and on innocent Iraqi and Afghani civilians. Kill in spend is now seen in some Americans eyes as a better alternative than tax and spend.

Instead the right and the left continue to slug it out over money. There are tea parties spewing with hatred, not for life and limb but for cash, and for less taxes, or to lay blame on which administration bailed out who.

We no longer tag one another as liberals and conservatives, now we are fascist and socialists. I do not want my hard earned tax dollars used to kill human beings, unless our country is attacked first, so I'm not sure what to call myself yet.

Why is it such a crime to keep the American automobile industry intact but not a crime to spend trillions on death and destruction ?

Priorities in this country are disgustingly wrong and America is amoral.

All of our political leaders in the house, and even the President seems to busy to address the two wars that continues the policy of kill and spend, while right wingers are crying about the politics of tax and spend.

The left has yet organized a significant protest to counter death and destruction, and while all this turmoil about money is front and center the American soldiers get put on the back burner. This gives the new administration, and everyone of our political leaders from the right and the left the chance to turn a blind eye to the needs of our veterans, and towards war crimes and torture, and finally putting an end to the war in Iraq. How patriotic.

Tea for Two




Since yesterday all you hear about is the big tea party. Its on all the blogs, left and right, its on all the cable news/clown shows left and right, and it is even being promoted by FOX television station, you know the station which is renown for being fair and balanced.

So I thought, there will never be a better time to actually talk about tea, and to show off some of my favorite teapots.

Since there is such a large variety of these aromatic bags I will get right to the point . My favorite tea maker is Tazo, they import all their herbs from around the world and manufacture their tea in Portland, Oregon, yes that would be one state that doesn't want to secede from the USA.

My favorite flavor is organic black chai, oh yes that would be black, as the black president of America who is giving us the biggest tax cuts since President Ronald Reagan.

This tea is a rich blend of sweet cinnamon, zingy ginger, spicy star anise, cloves, and warm cardamom. These spices are flown in from Asia, Central America and Africa, yea Africa, the Africa where our black president was not born in.

Did you know ? In the foothills of the Himalayas, chai wallahs can be found serving up steaming cups of sweetly spiced chai to wandering souls.

Come Together


With the weight of the world upon his back and with many an international ear set firmly by his lips Obama began the arduous task of healing this nation.

If you have read my blog in the past you will take note that I don't always agree with Obama at every turn. Yet I was quite exhilarated when I witnessed the positive reception he garnered abroad.

His eloquence coupled with the right amounts of certitude and humility then balanced with his willingness to be accountable for America's arrogance and mistakes spoke volumes, and it gave insight to the sincerity and truthfulness of his intentions, his tone was hard to dismiss by Americans and our global neighbors alike. Even as he made it clear to the world that America has also been the catalyst of many good deeds that have affected the world positively.

What may be hard for the world to believe, is the knowledge known by the majority of Americans. That knowledge being that even during these, the worst of times in American history in more than sixty years, the majority of the opposition party wants President Obama to fail.

The right wing has tried like an old cowpoke to cover their trail by swishing a branch over their footprints. It is to late to take back words that are recorded and videos that reveal the divisiveness percolating in our own country.

After having a near illiterate, rude and arrogant face representing our great country for the past eight years one would think that an American from either side of the aisle would take great delight and pleasure and be proud to be represented by a thoughtful person, a representative of our country who is held in esteem by most of the worlds population, and not in disdain.

I firmly believe in that America we have a duty to agree to always have healthy disagreements, it is part of our fabric, but to wish the leader of our country ill will and to fail is an act of treason. I hated what the previous administration stood for, but I only wished that they would stop breaking our laws and stop stealing our liberties by shredding our constitution. I never wanted our leaders to fail if only for the sake of my country and my personal well being.

I am glad that Obama and his team have extended a long awaited hand in an effort to aide our planet. Hopefully in these dire times all recognized world leaders will in the words of John Lennon "Come Together" right now over me.

The Land of Opportunity


I am beginning to wonder if the needs of the population at large will ever be addressed. I believe that we will need to hire lobbyist of our own in order to get the attention of our ever more aloof politicians that have no intention of enacting any policies that will help the common folk that have built this country with their hard work, and the blood they have shed from the many wars that they have fought, in the name of freedom.

The political machine seems to be fixated with tending only to the needs of their corporate contributors, by bailing them out at any cost. They also seem content to continue their divisiveness, to point fingers and to obstruct each other, and to politicize anything that they think that will give them an edge come election time.

They do this openly right in front of our faces. They have no respect for us or our votes. They trust more in our ignorance than in our diligence, they cater only to the demands of lobbyists and to no one else.

No president including Obama has the means to end the power that corporations have over the masses. We are all slaves to the culture of corrupt capitalism that has been enabled by years of deregulation. It has let these Wall Street crooks march through their companies and steal as much as they could carry, all financed by the 401k plans of the average Joe. Then after that they let their house of cards tumble along with the hopes and aspirations of the middle class.

Here are some of the more obvious results of the aforementioned, by the way as the media and politicians choose to ignore as tent cities pop up throughout our nation, " The Land of Opportunity." Here are the facts.

As many as 3.5 million people experience homelessness in a given year (1% of the entire U.S. population or 10% of its poor), and about 842,000 people in any given week.

1.37 million (or 39%) of the total homeless population are children under the age of 18

Familial composition
* 40% are families with children—the fastest growing segment.
* 41% are single males.
* 14% are single females.
* 5% are minors unaccompanied by adults.

Backgrounds.
* 23% are veterans (compared to 13% of general population).
* 25% were physically or sexually abused as children.
* 27% were in foster care or similar institutions as children.
* 21% were homeless at some point during their childhood.
* 54% were incarcerated at some point in their lives.

Education
* 38% have less than a High School diploma.
* 34% have a High School diploma or equivalent (G.E.D.).
* 28% have more than a High School education.

Employment
* 44% report having worked in the past week.
* 13% have regular jobs.
* 50% receive less than $300 per month as income.

Until we demand that our political system is not run by lobbyist and Wall street criminals these numbers will not only continue to expand, they will weaken the fiber and security of our country. No one that we elect into office will do this for us, not even Obama, as he has already demonstrated by hiring lobbyist into his cabinet by issuing a waiver. Waive this.

Nightmare on Wall St. My Social Security


I believe that trying to create a New World Order was a coveted priority on the agenda of the Bush administration. In my opinion for this plan to take hold its implementation had to have the seeds of destruction of the middle class and the poor to be sown right here in the United States.

After the attacks on American soil on 9/11/01 the administration with much of the worlds support led the attack on the enemy that was mainly centralized in Afghanistan. I'm going to cut to the chase and skip over what most thoughtful Americans already know, to further the ambitions of the far right wing they had to take a commanding position in the Mideast and to do so they simply fabricated evidence and invaded a country that had no means, no WMD's, no way, or technical knowledge to attack America, the analogy I hear from time to time from Chris Matthews "well it would be like attacking China after the Japanese bombed Pearl Harbor." Going back to the crux of my post, Rove and his gang used all this action to divert attention from the American people while they were in a patriotic frenzy, to get Bush to try and convince Americans that privatization of social security was the only way to save it, and that the government had no right to hold our money, and every other lame excuse to take it away from the safety of the federal government, and hand it over to their cronies on Wall Street.

Then there were all these right wing intellectuals, and the not so intellectual talking heads like O'Reilly, Coulter, Limbaugh, Hannity, and Republicans from both houses backing up this insanity, even some young Americans were sold on this plan. The market has crashed, now you can't find not even one of the big mouths that backed this plan nor the people that said that they supported it. Nope ask Cheney about it and he would just lie and say they really never cared about the success of that plan.

The point is if the conservative agenda on social security would have been crammed up our ass like everything else Bush and Cheney did, every poor and Middle class American would be dirt poor and on our knees because of the market collapse, we all would have had even less to look forward to. The only survivors would have been the elite rich, that is the top 2 to 5 percent of all Americans that do not need any social security. The divide between the rich and the rest of us would become an abyss, while providing another notch in Carl Roves gun grip.

I have lost over 50% of my meager IRA which was invested in very low risk mutual funds, and a money market account all with a huge company, American Funds. No matter what, I will never recoup all of that money. Now all I really have to rely on is social security an entitlement program that I have pumped money into all my life, and I am entitled to it. Not Bush, Rove and Cheney's friends on Wall Street, that they refused to regulate the past 8 years.

Thankfully social security stayed right where it belonged in a slow growing environment but a safe one, not in the hands of the cheats and speculators. The problem was that Bush and company always had a plan b, although not as destructive as bankrupting social security. Americans ended up being soaked at the pumps, at the hands of Bush's Saudi friends, that by the way were given immunity after 9 of their countrymen bombed America and also have one of the worst human rights violations against women on record, not to mention his domestic oilmen that had clandestine meetings with Cheney, that we until this day still have no idea of who was there or what was said.

If you add all the no bid contracts awarded to Cheney's Haliburton, Black Water now called Xe, Kellog , Brown and Root, and the Bechtel Group just to name a few. This filthy dirty downright war profiteering robbed hard working Americans of trillions, and more importantly the lives and limbs of thousands of patriotic American men and women. I guess you know by now there is more than one way to skin a cat.

The Stem Cell VS. Collateral Damage




If you look at the smaller photo that is at the very top of this post above the two larger photos you will see a human embryonic stem cell that is magnified about 7 thousand times or more, I'm not exactly sure. On the left side of this print you see an Iraqi man holding the mangled dead body of a little girl, most likely his daughter and if not she no doubt was a close relative.

On the right you you are looking at the dead bodies of three children in a crudely made coffin, as their father mourns in anguish while raising his arms and crying out to his God looking for an answer to why his children have been blown apart and no longer have a life.

I feel that it is my obligation to point out the ideological differences between myself and people that throw the words "collateral damage" around like it some how justifies the deaths of children during acts of war and that it relieves anyone involved, of any issues of morality in the actions that took place to end these innocent lives, a sort of free pass if you will. Of course innocent men and women are killed in these vile acts as well, but I want to stress the deaths of the children to make my point clear.

If your asking yourself if I am qualified to have an opinion about this matter, I will advise you that I have had the misfortune of having been part of a war. I will be the first to admit that I am biased. I am very anti war not only because 60,000 Americans died in my war, but also over a million civilians bit the dust, and like many other soldiers it is hard to find self forgiveness even though you are doing what your country has asked of you.

In America there is a society of individuals from a number of fundamentalist persuasions trying to make the claim that by using the human embryonic stem cell that you see in the photo above for science, is an act of murder. Even though these human stem cells have been offered up to other couples to use in order to have children, which I think is a very good thing, the fact is they produce about 400 births yearly. All the cells are not used so the 500,000 to 650,000 remaining cell are destroyed as medical waste every year.

Obama has reversed Bush's archaic stand against science and now out of the woodwork come all these politicians that totally ignore the pictues on the right and left of that stem cell, and find it very easy to dismiss real murder.

I am not trying to pass judgment on our troops they are soldiers, just as I was and many others, doing our jobs and being patriotic in every sense of the word, by putting their lives on the line and in over 4,300 cases having made the ultimate sacrifice.

I just find it hard to deal with the hypocrisy when it is so vivid and clear, why are the pro-lifers ignoring the thousands of dead children, at the cost of 4 trillion dollars and 4,300 American lives, it remains senseless to me. They should be so outraged that they should be fighting for every life that is being lost daily. Instead they are trying to make the case about a cryogenically frozen cell, that is about to be discarded.

It is unfortunate that those very people who are so concerned about a frozen stem cell that will be turned into medical waste if not used to help save more life, haven't the least bit of concern for those four children that I have noted earlier, if they did they would be up in arms about it wouldn't they ? How about the many others that get wounded beyond repair, if they cared it would be quite a different story. This is no way that an innocent little child, should he survive, have to live the remainder of his life just because a missile went off course. Not to mention how much pain and trauma that will end up being his constant companion instead of other children. This is sinful.


This sudden grandstanding about stem cells and calling them live beings in the face of the children worldwide that are suffering and dying daily from starvation and wars is drama at its worst. The time has come for me, and I will not accept the crazy ravings of American fundamentalism. American fundamentalist need to realize that the world does not revolve around them, and the sooner they stop trying to legislate their isms on me especially when they fight for the rights of a non living frozen cell rather than a living breathing human child, I would say they need a checkup from the neck up.

I also want to add that I will despise these words until my dying day "collateral damage."

Red State Blue State, How Great



What you are looking at directly above are the Electoral College maps of (top) President Reagan's 1984 presidential election's sweeping victory winning every state but Minnesota, and before that President Nixon's 1972 overwhelming victory winning every state but Massachusetts.

More importantly the right wing was not only popular, they were the power brokers of the time and they were the rulers of the kingdom. Subsequently the left wing was only able to interrupt the right wings agenda with a short stint of 4 years from President Carter. Then a more successful campaign with progressive ideals ensued with the 8 year term of President Clinton. Today it is a different story as the popularity of the Republican party continues to fade.

This next illustration is the Electoral map in Clinton's 1996 victory over Bush #1, You now begin to see the changes in the attitude toward the less populist right wing mores. In spite of Clinton's economic success, and his ability to totally eliminate the deficit and hand over the largest surplus in modern time to the next administration, the left wing failed to continue governing the White House. Instead Bush #2 won the next two presidential elections by very narrow margins, in his first victory he won the Electoral college but lost in the popular vote. In the second contest he won the state of Ohio by a few hundred votes once again giving the victory to Bush.

America is in a mess and many people are in a bad place right now, some of them because of the inept administration that ruled as an anarchy over the last 8 years, and other Americans through thoughtless spending. In the end the largest amount of money went to the top 5% of Americans while average middle class incomes decreased by $2,000 during the Bush administration. The failures and the recklessness of the past administration led to the overwhelming victory once again by the left wing and now President Obama.

President Obama's Electoral map (below) indicates that a few states that were red had felt that they needed a change from the policies that emaciated their people and they ended up in the left wing column. Although Obama had garnered 365 electoral votes in his commanding victory over John McCain, it is worth noting that Clinton's margin of victory of 379 electoral votes in his election was larger.

If the current administration is able to lift America and Americans up during the next 4 years, then there is a good chance that the map will change once again, when the incumbent, President Obama runs for the White House against Rush Limbaugh in 2012.

Anarchistic Governors Hurt the Unemployed


During the 14 months from December 2007 through January 2009, the total number of mass layoff events (seasonally adjusted) was 25,712, and the number of initial claims (seasonally adjusted) was 2,632,336. (December 2007 was the start of a recession as designated by the National Bureau of Economic Research.)

The national unemployment rate was 7.6 percent in January 2009, seasonally adjusted, up from 7.2 percent the prior month and from 4.9 percent a year earlier. In January, total nonfarm payroll employment decreased by 598,000 over the month and by 3,500,000 from a year earlier.

I didn't pull these numbers out of some liberals ass, they come from the Bureau of Labor Statistics. When these rebellious Republican Governors refuse to take stimulus money for their states, especially money for food stamps that return $1.39 to our economy for every $1.00 in food stamps used, or money to extend unemployment benefits so that families can feed their kids and buy medicine, or to keep civil servants from getting laid off, (police, firemen, first responders, teachers, etc.) then the Governors choosing ideology over the needs of the people should be impeached.

It is also incumbent on the President to make sure that his Labor Secretary Hilda Solis is not dragging her feet, and starts to immediately fund shovel ready infrastructure jobs. I see no sense of urgency from the left or the right as 20,000 jobs are being lost every month. Americans are hurting and they really are in trouble, and it seems like the no one gets it. Especially the Americans at the top percentile of wealth.

I thought by now there should have been at least a few ground breaking ceremonies that would be signaling the start of the rebuilding of our country.

A Grim Reminder



USS New York It was built with 24 tons of scrap steel from the World Trade Center.

Steel from the World Trade Center was melted down in a foundry in Amite, LA to cast the ship's bow section. When it was poured into the molds on Sept 9, 2003, 'those big rough steelworkers treated it with total reverence," recalled Navy Capt. Kevin Wensing, who was there. "It was a spiritual moment for everybody there. The ship's motto? "Never Forget". Junior Chavers, foundry operations manager, said that when the trade center steel first arrived, he touched it with his hand and the "hair on my neck stood up." "It had a big meaning to it for all of us," he said. "They knocked us down. They can't keep us down.. We're going to be back."

It is the fifth in a new class of warship - designed for missions that include special operations against terrorists. It will carry a crew of 360 sailors and 700 combat-ready Marines to be delivered ashore by helicopters and assault craft.

The Night Intellect Killed Hubris

Last night the President of the USA gave a speech that was an oratory delight, not to mention his commanding presence. It did not matter to me whether I agreed with every single issue that he put forth. He is an absolutely scintillating speaker and politician. He was able to speak of his agenda in such a way that the highly partisan house had no choice but to stand up and applaud him, especially when he was speaking about matters that favored the masses. The Republicans could not take a chance that a camera may have been upon their face to reveal what was going on in their minds. Staying seated was not an option for the right wing when Obama spoke of populist issues. It was an odd sight to behold, both sides of the aisle giving standing ovations in such a symphonious fashion. He had cornered the right wing using his intellect instead of hubris.
The speech given by Obama had been laced with kind of rhetoric that was hard to dismiss, because it was full of hope and it went right to the causes of the problems facing us all, he was not afraid to point out that to help in gaining solutions, much hard work lay ahead for all politicians from both sides and that all Americans had a responsibility in helping out too. If he delivers on only half of his rhetorical promises he will have achieved in the face of madness what others thought impossible, so for his ambitiousness I am with him. I hope that he succeeds because America and Americans need to have the pride and dignity not to mention the means that they have been stripped of to survive in this world spinning wildly out of control. If you stayed tune to hear the rebuttal speech given by Governor Jendal of Louisiana, I could only say that he never listened to Obama's speech in order to give a proper response. He actually started of his rebuke by bringing up Katrina. I would think that would be the last thing a Republican would want to talk about. Well in short his speech was sophomoric at best. He spoke only to the hard core right wing. I don't think he was prepared to speak to the masses about solving their economic problems, he spoke right out of the can of neo-con talking points period.

Two Can Play the Same Game




The idea that racism in this country has somehow been put to rest because America voted for an African American to lead this country is a misnomer, just look at the NY Post or listen to Limbaugh, Hannity or Coulter.

"Venom Deserves Venom"


I really hate to go here again mostly because I am being redundant. I have already written about this person in an earlier post. Now I want to insult her, and her lack of civility, and also the people that voted her into office, especially after her continual displays of madness. Look closely and you will see the face of a pretty insane person, no strike the pretty (please I am not sexist), lets just go with an insane person whose sole purpose is to engage in outright lies, not just about what she claims to be in the stimulus package, but how she takes a hateful disposition about anything and any person that does not fit into her own world of warped ideologies. I feel compelled to use some other adjectives to describe her, so I will. She is dangerous, a menace to society, hateful, uninformed, and very insensitively ignorant. The disgusting diatribes produced by whatever is left between her ears are just not worth repeating.

I am sure that many people from the left and the right have watched TV cable news, or read about her in newspapers, or on other blogs in the last few days, and they are already aware of her divisiveness. I think this is worth writing about again because she does have supporters, this is a frightening fact, and it is very unsettling. Her supporters are people with the same ideologies that she espouses, they too are cut from the same cloth, and they don't see anything wrong with her or themselves for supporting such a crackpot. She is without doubt another example of what makes me keep on keeping about people like her, and the likes of people that support her. The right wing has been very clear about never working in unison with the left, even if it means not helping Americans that have taken the hardest hits from the past thieving and failed Republican administration. They (the right) will forever remain and harbor spitefulness towards the left. Let me end this post with an apology for publicly exposing this dastardly person to all you kind people that read my blog, and also for lowering myself to her level, but sometimes you just gotta do what you gotta do. (hint Obama)

Shipwrecked


The catch phrase used by politicians these days that "we are all in the same boat together" while used by both parties to try and rally a nationalistic feeling amongst Americans during this time of depression really needs some defining, especially after seeing in general the Republican reaction to the situation that our country is in today. Might I add mostly as a direct result of the past 8 years of conservatism led by the illustrious duo of the Bush & Cheney vaudevillian administration. If you want to insist that we are all in a "boat" let me break it down for you. The poor in America are in the mighty ocean on Huck Finn styled rafts hanging on for dear life. The middle class Americans from both the left and the right sides of the political spectrum are in the ocean simply put on a sinking ship. Finally the richest and the most privileged of the Americans navigate the same waters on a luxury cruise ship with all the amenities that a person could ever ask for. This is how it is and to use this "we are all in this same boat together" line is simply a lie.

So this is why I am tired of hearing this particular catchphrase from any politician. This also comes to bare as a result of either parties ability to identify with the real problems that are plaguing Americans today. I say this about the left because they caved in to the demands of the right on the ideology of what the make up of the Stimulus package should have been, and now rendering it less helpful, the left also let the right frame their attempt to re-regulate Wall St. and help ailing Americans in such a negative light, and with impunity to boot that you would swear after hearing a Republican tyrade about the actions of the left in regards the Stimulus, that the best thing to do to help America and its citizens would be to do nothing at all.

Fly'in High with "Captain Composure"

After watching "Sully" Sullenberger being interviewed by Katie Couric tonight on 20/20 I felt compelled to tip my hat to "Captain Composure". I was amazed at the level of his humility and certitude. He really displayed rather brilliantly the true meaning of what being a man is all about. "Sully" thanks for the reminder.

Stimulate This

Instead of a large overbearing stimulus package that is loaded with pork, and steals more of the American workers money, while at the same time making it very hard to understand and follow I offer this proposal. Let us have individual Stimuli Packets. Each packet will be addressed to only one issue at a time, for example lets say we call the first proposal the Infrastructure Packet. All the money in this particular packet will be earmarked for infrastructure build outs and nothing else. The dollar amount allocated to the packet along with the exact project and location would be listed online for any person to see, very simple black and white language, with no double speak or gray areas to confuse the issue or the project at hand.

Each state would submit to the federal government a prioritized list of roads, bridges, buildings etc. that need immediate attention. The jobs to do these repairs would be immediate and the impact on the economy would also be immediate, not to mention that the taxpayers can see not only how much but where and how their cash is being spent. Our next packet would be the Energy Grid Packet, same idea as the first packet totally open and all the money in this packet is earmarked only to get our grids up to par so it doesn't shut down when it rains to hard.

It is not my intention to list every packet or every problem but it is suffice to say that there are very easily five to ten needs that can be easily prioritized as real stimulus, then broken down and approved. They would meet approval only if the stimulus is focused on job creating or job sustaining solutions, manufacturing and production growth.

We should demand that our hard earned money will be spent with the utmost of transparency. It is hard to believe that the prior administration has doled out $350 billion dollars without an iota of accountability. No matter your ideology you were just robbed by Bush once again as he left office, unless you were one of the chosen few that received part of 18.4 billion dollars of the bailout on bonus checks. I guess you would be one of the happy jerk-balls, that continue to take and never give back.

The Stimulus Package as it stands will surely help America to it's knees quicker than you may want to admit. The solution is to be aggressive where it creates and keeps jobs, and gets us off our addiction to oil, and to physically make our country strong enough to stand up to rainstorms, and a little snow, and naturally against our sworn enemies.

Wake Up & Smell the Republicans, I Mean the Coffee

It looks like Obama has wasted precious time and resources by trying to extend a bipartisan hand to the republican party. Maybe he did it all for show and no go, who knows and who cares. The idea that the right wing will work with the left wing is absurd. Clearly Bush and company drew that line in the sand over eight years ago when he totally ignored the left, and he had the majority in both houses. I really don't mind if the parties ever work with each other any more, it's clearly to late to kiss and make up. This is what U S politics has evolved into, "majority rules" So wake up and smell the coffee Obama and stop the ass kissing already.

Now you have the majority, in both the congress and the senate. Take a tip from your predecessor and start cramming your programs down the throats of the right wing. They showed this country no mercy when they had the power to take away our liberties or send Americans to die in a war of choice. They got everything they wanted including redistributing or should I say stealing from the poor and middle classes of hard working Americans and giving it to the top 10 percent of America's wealthiest people. Bush, Cheney and the right wing senate and congress didn't even bat an eye and why should they, they knew that their spineless counterparts on the other side of the aisle would do nothing to stop them.

You have a couple of high ranking Republicans in your cabinet, you broke bread with the elite right wing intellectuals, and you have tried to be inclusive to a point. In return you have half the country wishing that you fail, meaning that if neo-con ideology is not running this country they rather have a failed state. Mr. Obama you have right wing congressmen and senators giving a bombastic radio show host apologies and by the way more respect than they will ever give to you. What are you waiting for ? Well don't worry I think the coffee is already burnt.

Keith Olbermann

I must admit when I first started to watch his show it was nice to hear something from the other side, Olbermann was the ad hoc anti Limbaugh and O'Reilly, but he lost me during the primary when he and his pal Chris Matthews displayed so much blatant sexism and venom against Hillary Clinton. I will admit upfront that I supported Obama, but only after Clinton lost to him in the primary. Now yesterday before the heat in the Oval Office could reach 72 degrees Obama broke his first promise to the American people that voted him into office, here are Obama's words.

"I am in this race to tell the corporate lobbyists that their days of setting the agenda in Washington are over," he said this in November 2007 in Des Moines, Iowa. "I have done more than any other candidate in this race to take on lobbyists and won. They have not funded my campaign, they will not run my White House, and they will not drown out the voices of the American people when I am president." You heard it right from the horses mouth, so what happens next is hard to swallow because Obama chose to appoint a defense contractor's lobbyist this Thursday to become his No. 2 official at the Defense Department.

William J. Lynn III, Obama's choice for deputy defense secretary, was senior vice president for government operations at Raytheon Co. and lobbied as recently as last June on issues including missiles, sensors and radar, advanced technology programs and intelligence funding. This after Obama has vowed that no political appointees in his administration would be permitted to work on areas that "directly and substantially related to their prior employer for two years." During his presidential campaign, Obama took pains to tell voters he wouldn't tolerate influence-peddling. Under Obama's rules, political appointees also would be precluded from lobbying the executive branch after leaving government service during the remainder of his administration. The president like every other one before him sold us a bill of goods.

Well this is obviously a very disappointing choice to me on a personal level and I have already made calls to my state senators and to one congressperson in my district, asking that they vote against, and not confirm this choice.

As for Olbermann not a word, not a pip not question, no special comment on the first contradiction to the presidents own rule, nada, nothing on his show last night about this obviously blatant lie made by the new president to America. It just goes to show you that whether they are talking heads from the left or the right they will only speak to divisiveness, and stay on point for their man no matter what, and the politicians can always count on good old American apathy to let them get away with the business as usual in Washington, old style no change tired and dishonest politics.

Ann Coulter

It is useless to toss negative cliches at this woman and think that it would matter. Look at the comments from people on many a blog defending her, they are all of the same DNA, as the likes of Bush, Cheney, and neo-cons in general. Any thoughtful person would just ignore her. She is what she is and she only preaches to a shrinking choir. This country and its citizens have been abused to the point of desperation, economically and morally, with the outgoing administration seeing the Constitution as paper to line the bottom of a bird cage our nation had no chance. We need to keep focused on the positives and ignore the ignorance of any person that is going to continue to earn a living by being divisive. There has been enough American blood and treasure and goodwill wasted because of conflicting ideology.
I only wro
te this quick post because of the uproar and accusations made by Coulter after she had been canceled by NBC on the Today show. I guess she was going on to promote a new book of hers, and at the last minute NBC had a chance to interview Bush's lap dog Tony Blair. So began the attacks on the left wing media (NBC) even though she was re booked. I think that the recent extraordinary outreach made by the Obama administration should not only be commended but recognized for the good will it has already started here at home. He has made scores of courtesy calls with reputable people from the far left and the far right, he has called and visited the Supreme Court and chief justice John Roberts, and leaders representing a variety of religions. I hope his actions will in the long run help diminish the haters from both sides of the aisles.

Change We Can Beleive In, Maybe In Your Pants Pocket.

OBLAGOVICH

I guess I'm just disappointed more about the conduct of the Obama selection process. I know he isn't personally choosing Kennedy as Hillary's replacement for her New York senate seat, but he is the new party leader and if he asks Patterson to appoint her its a done deal. I heard Caroline on the tube again yesterday, I mean she was asked some very simplistic questions that only required a one or two sentence response to clarify her stance, she just jabbered on repeating adverbs and useless adjectives that had little to no meaning in helping to clarify her posture on the issues brought to her. Instead she mimicked the same Palin style of beating around the bush, for a person of her perceived magnitude, she does not come across as a political wonk, her sound bites are pathetic and her looks project weakness, where strength and confidence are going to be key essentials to win the battles that besiege Americans today. From the bottom of my heart, I loved JFK.
Now to make matters worse there is a scandalous trail on Obama's coat tails leading from Illinois to the White House, besides the apparent quid pro quo favor to Ted Kennedy, to the disgraced Illinois Governor Blogoyavych appointment to the senate to replace Obama's seat, now top cabinet appointment Gov. Bill Richardson (commerce secretary) appointee has to pull out because he is allegedly involved in some pay for play bid scandals, nice job the Obama vetting team has done. The Obama administration won't begin for another 2 weeks, and no one knew of the upcoming charges. Seriously nothing is changing or will change its dirty politics as usual. Yes I am still awaiting some progressive intellectuals that I thought along with millions of others thought would become appointments to this administration. So far Obama has shunned the progressive left wing and gays, two large groups that had a role in his gaining this election.
