How do Liberals Escape from Wing-Nut Hell

Wednesday, May 28th, 2014

gop-vs-americaThere is broad disappointment among [Liberals] progressives at the outcome of several recent antics of the radical right teabagger extreme. From the debt ceiling deal to the near collapse of the government. How do you deal with zealots that are hell bent on blowing up the entire economy if they don’t get their way? So how do [Liberals] progressives escape from this wing-nut hell?

The last several years, European politicians struggled to avoid default that would lead their economies to collapse. Those who tried austerity as a solution, suffered damaging blows to their economies and encountered wrath from it people. Yet, in the United States, radical right extremists Republicans manufactured the same kind of economic crisis and threatened to blow the entire economy to hell if they didn’t get their way. They have sinse engaged in an orgy of austerity that has damaged our economic growth and killed new job creation.

Did their tactics work? Idiots who are reckless have a huge advantage when dealing with rational foes that act responsibly.

President Obama and Democratic leadership did a valiant job avoiding the worst features of the deal, but in the end the negotiation was only about the size of the ransom paid and the damage of its costs to our economy.

Other historical situations involving both Republican and Democratic Presidents ended more rationally when faced with difficult economic solutions. The deficit reduction deal between Ronald Regan and Democrat House Speaker Tip O’Neal in 1984 was 82% new revenue and 18% cuts in expenditures. Clinton’s deals that lead to large surpluses in the 1990’s was 62% new taxes – mainly on the wealthy – and 38% cuts. This deal was 100% cuts. But today’s teabagger extremists don’t deal in rational behavior or use logic.

The general consensus among economists is that the impact of the cuts of the ongoing Sequester is damaging the already-weak economic recovery. The deal included no short-term stimulus and extreme cuts in R&D that is allowing China to gain on the US in areas of new energy technology advantages that will lead to future economic world dominance.

It is interesting to note that Congressional cuts in Embassy protection lead to weak embassy security that allowed extremists attacks on the Embassy resulting in four deaths at Benghazi. A situation that was clearly created by the radical teabagger congress that Republicans hypocrisy attempts to use as political weapon against Hillary Clinton.

There were some bright spots in the outcome of the war of economic attrition but traditional logic does not apply to the teabagger faithful. Clear danger lies ahead for progressives.

Progressives must maintain a determined, relentless campaign to prevent the teabagger controlled Congress from making cuts in Social Security, Medicaid and Medicare.

The Paul Ryan budget shows us exactly where the Republicans want to go. The Republican budget would eliminate Medicare and replace it with a failed system of vouchers for private insurance that raises the out of pocket health care expenses of senior citizens by $6,000 per year. They would raise the retirement age for Social Security, and turn Medicaid into block grants that would eliminate the guarantee of health care for the poor, and nursing home care for seniors and the disabled. And they would do it all to prevent the rich from having to contribute to deficit reduction.

We must continue to refocus the political conversation directly to the issue that the vast majority of Americans really care about: jobs and fair living wages.

Progressives must get out the vote because Elections matter. If given the opportunity, the extremists will destroy Obamacare, Social Security, Medicare, Medicaid, and the EPA. They will increase the war against women’s rights; continue the assault on science, and legitimate hate and intolerance.

The recent battles to close the government and threats to implode the economy must serve as a warning — a wake up call. The [wing-nut] Republicans must be stopped. They will outsource what remains of our manufacturing jobs, repeal Obamacare, eliminate all regulations on Wall Street’s greed, destroy unions and allow the wealthy to plunder what is left of America’s middle class.

If one doubts this, one need look no future back than 2007 when they tried the same failed economic recipe for disaster that cast the nation into near economic ruin and the worse economic downturn since the Great Depression.

Red State Mentality

Friday, November 29th, 2013

art-gop-fascism-posterFrom striping voting rights to slashing food “SNAP” assistance to America’s hungry, the mentality of red state America is becoming increasingly morally corrupt. Void of a moral compass, Republicans and conservatives in red states rush to outdo each other with legislation based on ignorance and mean spirited intent. Their blatant attacks and hatred toward the poor is frightening. The wealthy are more than happy to finance their greed based agenda. The mindless Teabaggers serve as their foot soldiers ready to do the bidding of the rich and powerful.

These same people share something else, a evil hatred for President Obama. The birtherism movement was born in the bowels of the red states. Birtherism is based on ignorance, racism and stupidly. It is one of the first scared beliefs of the Teabagger movement. The belief is fueled by minions of the rich. These people aren’t terribly smart. They work for the rich to undermine the middleclass and they are middleclass. Their red hot rhetoric is a direct threat to democracy and freedom. This disturbing behavior is only matched by extremists in the Taliban.

The American Taliban excels in political theater. Their leaders include Michelle Bachmann, Steve King, Donald Trump, and Ted Cruise. Their ignorance is based on lies and paranoia and fueled by racism and hatred. They hate science and facts. They use creationism to justify their lies, based on the bible, they claim, under their ignorance based interpretation of it. There is a real disconnect between reality and their beliefs. They hate the government but don’t touch their Social Security. They distort history to justify their ignorance based beliefs. They demonize knowledge and intellect. They reject facts.

antiOBAMAThey say they want to take back their county. The question is take it where? To dirt roads and caves? When it comes to their biggest hatred – Obamacare, they have forgot that Obamacare was the central issue in two elections that elected Obama, or that Obamacare was upheld by both houses of congress and the Supreme Court. They address the landslide elections against them with voter suppression laws. If you have policies that the majority of Americans clearly reject, the solution is to reduce the number of those who can vote. Prevent the majority from voting and the minority can dictate their ignorance based beliefs.

From issues that range from abortion to workers rights, voting rights to women rights, minimum wage to immigration, marriage equality to individual freedoms, those in the red states are on the wrong side of history. We can only be thankful that the majority of Americans reject this ignorance and that those in the red states are a growing minority. Americans must remain diligent to prevent the extremists “red state mentality” threat against democracy in America from becoming a twisted reality. Red state wing-nut ignorance is not only laughable, it is dangerous.

Ramsey’s Dishonest “tweet” on President Obama

Wednesday, September 11th, 2013

Tennessee Democrats are calling out Lt. Gov. Ron Ramsey after the Republican lawmaker sent a tweet accusing President Obama of being an “ally” with Al-Qaeda in Syria.

The tweet in question was sent from Ramsey’s Twitter page this morning, the anniversary of the 9/11 attacks.

The Ramsey tweet reads, “As the President attempts to ally with Al-Qaeda in Syria’s civil war, we must always remember who attacked us on our soil 12 years ago.”

Tennessee Democratic Party Chairman Roy Herron quickly responded to the tweet and blasted the lawmaker’s comment.

“I read it and my first reaction was, ‘Is this a joke?'” Herron went on to call the tweet “dishonest, inflammatory, outrageous and unpatriotic.”

The tweet comes a day after the president addressed the nation making his case for a military strike on Syria.

The Press has tried to reach Ramsey and/or his spokesperson for comment, but no has responded to calls from the media.

Some say Ramsey is too smart to make such a stupid political comment while others note he is arrogant enough to say it.

The Re-election of President Obama

Saturday, September 8th, 2012

President Obama’s has always been far more successful a president than his opponents claim. Do voters remember all he has done? The American people heard powerful speeches by former President Bill Clinton, First Lady Michelle Obama, Vice President Joe Biden and a host of others. Unlike the GOP convention the previous week, the Democratic convention was filled with excitement and motivated delegates. Did Mr. Obama make the case for second term?

Just as he did in 2008, President Obama rose to the occasion.

He could have been more passion, but gone was the maddening coyness of recent years in which he has avoided honestly talking about the mess that President George W. Bush had left him. He went after Romney. “You might not be ready for diplomacy with Beijing if you can’t visit the Olympics without insulting our closest ally,” he said.

He clearly laid out a vision for governing totally different than that of Romney. Although Romney’s plan was hidden from view at last week’s Republican convention in Tampa, Fla. Obama promised deficit reduction “without sticking it to the middle class”; to enact a reformed tax code that raises rates on income above $250,000 to where it was under Mr. Clinton; to preserve middle-class deductions; to “never turn Medicare into a voucher.”

President Obama slowly shifted from his 2008 appeal of hope and change to talk of tough choices and tough paths. “You didn’t elect me to tell you what you wanted to hear,” he said. “You elected me to tell you the truth. And the truth is, it will take more than a few years for us to solve challenges that have built up over decades.”

Mr. Obama entered the convention with an actual solid record at governing — not just the Republican posture of saying “No” to everything. Obama has far better ideas about how to create jobs, make Americans’ tax burdens more equitable and improve ordinary Americans’ economic prospects than the tired, failed trickle-down fantasies served up by Romney and the GOP.

Obama ended the war in Iraq, tried to rescue the Afghan war that Bush bungled, stepped up the offensive on terrorists with increased drone attacks, killed Osama Bin Laden and rallied the world to increase pressure on Iran.

He mocked the extreme message of the Tea Party by offering an alternative vision of government’s obligation to help those most in need, provide everyone with the basic structures of society and the economy and end discrimination. Obama has protected women’s constitutional rights and liberties.

But, after he was elected, Mr. Obama allowed himself to believe that the Republicans would work with him to solve the major problems they created. The president and his inner circle were oblivious to the Republicans’ explicit warning that he would not get the slightest cooperation from a party and a Congressional caucus driven by a racist hatred of Mr. Obama. To his credit, and some say folly, it took nearly three years for Obama to recognize that central fact.

Mr. Obama won passage of his economic recovery bill that not only warded off depression, but actually created jobs, and of a health care reform law that is essential to the long-term economic health of the country. But he made the mistake of leaving the lawmaking up to Congress, where Democratic leaders did not fully step up to the moment and Republicans stood in stonewall opposition.

Obama made a grave error when he ceded the national debate on central issues to those same “do nothing” Republicans, blinded by his belief that the force of the situation could melt their obstructionism. He was wrong, fueled by hatred of Obama, the Republicans became more entrenched and they proved they were prepared to sacrifice the county if it could bring the downfall of President Obama. Mr. Obama allowed his opponents to define the argument, and for the moment, define him.

Wednesday night, President Bill Clinton showed President Obama the antidote. On Wednesday night, Mr. Clinton fought back against the Republicans and shredded them on Medicaid and Medicare, two areas where the Obama campaign has failed to get real traction. He made the argument for health care reform, financial re-regulation and fair taxation, all while firing up the crowd.

As President Clinton noted in his speech, the Romney campaign has routinely launched false attacks with a blatant disregard for the truth, even going so far as to say, “We’re not going to let our campaign be dictated by fact checkers.”

On Thursday, Obama met his challenge in Charlotte and made the case for his second term.

Tennessee Legislation Passed in 2012: No Jobs!

Saturday, August 11th, 2012

Here is a list of some of the legislation that has been approved by the Tennessee Legislature in 2012. The wing-nuts continue to embarrass Tennesseans and have failed to pass one act of legislation producing one job or job bill. Take a look at what backwoods mentality brings in the form of legislation.

Yeah it true. Two years of legislation and not one job bill passed by the Tennessee legislation. In 2010, Tennessee Republicans promised to focus on job creation and education. Since, their capturing of the Tennessee Legislation, not one job creation bill has passed.

Ron Ramsey, Bill Haslam & Beth Harwell have lead Tennessee to the bottom with job loses as reported by Out of the Blue. Only Wisconsin has more job losses last month. More republican lies… in the 2010 election they promised jobs & all we have received is radical extremist legislation and GOP failure! The GOP can’t govern but they can sure lie!

Blow up Rocky Top? Special Topic at UCDP Meeting

Saturday, July 14th, 2012

Blow up Rocky Top? This will be a special topic at the July 21st Unicoi County Democratic Party Meeting at 11 am at Erwin Town Hall on Main Street in Erwin, TN. Jennie Young, mountain activists, will be addressing this very important subject.

In March of this year, a state House subcommittee failed to pass legislation to stop coal companies from blowing the tops off Tennessee’s mountains.

The political hacks on the misnamed Conservation and Environment Subcommittee could not say no to the rich coal companies and bring themselves to actually vote down the bill itself.

Instead, lawmakers voted 6-4 to send the bill to summer study where Ron Ramsey plans to bury it for good. He knows that this is the same as voting to kill this bill, but Republican lawmakers insisted they want to study this issue. They claim they have not had had the time to think about it during any of the five sessions it’s been debated so far in the legislature.

Sadly, the coal companies are stuffing money in the pockets of these same legislators. Needless to say Ron Ramsey is a few hundred thousand dollars richer from his coal buddies filling his political coffers.

“What would Tennessee be without our mountains?” asked Rep. Mike McDonald, D-Portland, the bill’s sponsor.

He said coal companies have started mountaintop removal mining at eight locations in Tennessee since this bill first was proposed.

“We have delayed and delayed action on this and we’ve lost eight mountains since 2008 by delaying. If we don’t pass this bill this year, we’ll lose more mountains. … Just like it was historic when the Great Smoky Mountains were protected and preserved for future generations, this committee has a historic opportunity today to protect Tennesseans and Tennessee’s mountains. Without our mountains, Tennessee is not Tennessee.”

But Republican Legislators say they need more time to think about whether it’s “OK” to blow up our Tennessee Mountains. Once again, Tennessee Republicans show us that anything is possible and “everything is for sale” when you have no moral compass.

Willard Romney’s Bain Capital Lie

Friday, July 13th, 2012

Rich boy, Willard “Mitt” Romney’s “corporate raider” career at Bain Capital, which he owned and ran as chief executive, is the cornerstone of his business campaign for the Republican presidential nomination — the credential, he argues, that showcases his management skills and business acumen that America needs to revive a stalled economy. Creating jobs “by Outsourcing jobs”, Mr. Romney says, is exactly what he knows how to do.

At Bain Capital’s direction, Dade International quadrupled the money it owed creditors and vendors which lead to the businesses bankruptcy. And in waves of layoffs, as a result 1,700 workers in the United States lost their jobs at a plant in Massachusetts as a result of Mr. Romney’s business skills.

The White House is presenting a less flattering portrayal, framing Willard Romney’s record at Bain as evidence that he would pursue slash and burn economics and that his business career thrived by enriching the elite at the expense of the working class.

A few months before the dirty deeds, in February 1999, Mr. Romney claimed to retire from Bain Capital to oversee the Olympic Games in Salt Lake City. He nevertheless benefited from the transaction, a financial disclosure form indicates. Records show that until at least 2001, he remained the chairman, CEO and President of Bain Capital.

Yet when it came to his considerable personal wealth and leadership, Mr. Romney never really left Bain. In 2001, Mr. Romney announced that he had formally transferred his ownership of Bain Capital Inc. to other partners.

Government documents filed by Mitt Romney and Bain Capital say Romney remained chief executive and chairman of the firm three years beyond the date he said he ceded control, even creating five new investment partnerships during that time.

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.” Bain Capital made Willard Romney a very wealthy “vulture capitalist”.

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.

Today Willard demanded an apology from President Obama for making what he called “reckless” and “absurd” allegations about his record while repeating his insistence that he left Bain Capital in 1999 to run the Olympics.

Instead, Mr. Obama on Friday added his voice to the attacks on Mr. Romney’s record at Bain Capital, telling a local news anchor in Virginia that Mr. Romney should answer lingering questions about what his role was at the firm.

“I think most Americans figure if you are the chairman, C.E.O. and president of a company that you are responsible for what that company does,” Mr. Obama said, “Ultimately Mr. Romney, I think, is going to have to answer those questions.”
Mr. Obama is running millions of dollars in television advertisements calling on Mr. Romney to reveal more about his personal taxes, offshore bank and investment accounts, and linking him to investments made at Bain from 1999 to 2001, when

Mr. Romney says he was no longer at the company. On Thursday, the president’s aides said Mr. Romney was either lying on federal documents or to the American people.

Corporate raider Willard Romney will have to do a better job of explaining “lying” his way out of this lie. Several months ago when Willard Romney said, “Lies are not sins; they are business plans” he was actually telling us the truth about Willard “Mitt” Romney being a lier.

A Vile Agenda

Sunday, April 22nd, 2012

Not so long ago, America was the most technology based nation on the planet. We were the most advanced. We invented virtually everything and these products were high quality. America was on the cutting edge of science. We lead in virtually every category of innovation and technology.

Today, China and India are ever increasingly leading the world in product production. We no longer invent products or have new ideas. Republican controlled states are waging war on science; this is especially true in Tennessee. How can we lead the world’s new economy when we reject science which creates cutting edge technology? How can we create jobs without science or technology? How can we remain the world super power without being the leader in technology and science? How can we have the world’s strongest economy when we scorn public education for all young people and minimize teachers and the profession of education?

What do we owe our sudden embrace of ignorance and scorn of intellectualism? Right wing extremism; both political and religious, is the disease that threatens America’s standing as the world’s leader in innovation, technology and job creation. Fundamentalism is the scourge that threatens American power and world stability.

The conservative “lies” values of greed and gluttony have permeated every aspect of American politics and religion and can be traced as the root cause of the collapse of America’s economy. Trickle down economics did not work, it was not intended to work, it served as the conservative “lie” tool to rape the American tax payer and redirect wealth to the top 1%. Republicans say we can’t fairly tax the job creators… but where are the jobs?

The teabagger movement was the tool of ignorance used to topple common sense government and swing the pendulum of wealth; from a level spread of wealth away from the American middle class to a concentration of wealth to the rich and corporations. The teabagger “puppet” movement was the brainchild of rich conservatives and corporations who dreamed of even more wealth at the expense of America and the American middle class. The movement of disenfranchised Republicans was/is financially backed by the Koch brothers; David and Charles, two the worlds wealthiest men. The movement was born the day after the first African American President; Barack Obama was elected, an election result that incensed conservatives and racists.

The American Legislative Exchange Council (ALEC) is the secret organization of corporations who has written much of the legislation that was recently imposed by the newly elected Republican legislatures in several states (Tennessee, Michigan, Wisconsin, Ohio, and fourteen others) across America. Through ALEC, global corporations have been scheming for some time to rewrite laws that threaten the very rights of Americans in order to boost their profits and revenue.

Their minions (Republican state legislators) implement these laws at the bidding of their masters; corporations and the wealthy, who in turn fill their political coffers from the wealth accrued from the very laws designed to destroy the American middle class while exploding corporate profits. Remember Willard Romney’s passionate words, presumptive Republican Presidential candidate, passionately claiming corporations are people and have rights. Yes, the rights he is so passionately embracing is the same corporate rights draining America dry, at the expense of the American middle class. These are the same rights as dictated by ALEC.

If you destroy unions, the “high” American standard of living, the right to litigation for injury from bad drugs or dangerous products, implement voter suppression, destroy environmental protection, dissemble constitutional rights and freedoms, you (the corporation) can do whatever you want with no resistance. You wrote the laws and your minions (Republicans) implemented them and all means to correct the injustice has been dismantled and/or virtually destroyed. A win win for the corporations and wealthy at the expense of everyone else (the 99%).

A nation of well informed men who have been taught to know and prize the rights which God has given them cannot be enslaved. It is in the region of ignorance that tyranny begins.” The conservatives know this well and have seen this knowledge as a serious threat to their agenda of lust for greed and personal wealth.

They know a well informed public is hard to lie to. Enter Fox news, stage left and “The world is full of Kings and Queens who as they blind your eyes and steal your dreams.” A well informed population is hard to manipulate with propaganda unless you blind them with lies and misconceptions (Fox news). A well informed public would also be hard to convince that economic suicide (trickle down economics) is a viable economic platform.

The conservatives have spent years slowly eroding the foundations of intellectual America. First, they demonized the word “Liberal” the foundation that built the great American middle class. Once scientists and teachers were respected, now they have been demonized. They blame failing schools on Teachers. Intellectuals are Socialists! Educated people are elitists! Global warming is lies from scientists!

They demonized Al Gore, he won but lost to an idiot who has all but destroyed our economy but the rich got what they wanted. Ignorance is bliss. Environmentalists have warned for years that pollution was damaging the planet; they were labeled as “tree hugging hippies.” Notice the pattern, which a form of intellectual thought questions the obvious; it is labeled the enemy and demonized. Creating false enemies gives the adage “kill the messenger” an all new meaning.

How does religion fit into this fundamentalist conservative scam? Fundamentalism cannot be questioned or it is exposed as a false prophet, science questions, therefore, it is demonized and must be dismantled and destroyed, it is the enemy by its vary nature. Anything that fosters intelligence “strong public education” or “science” or “truth” must be destroyed, in the eyes of the conservatives. You cannot be deceived when you think for yourself and use your mind!

The election of 2012 may be the most important election in American History. Many questions will be answered and hopefully some dangerous threats to America’s future will once and for all be destroyed. The vile agenda of ALEC is the biggest threat to America’s middle class and without the middle class, American power will decline.

The drunken orgy of greed drives those who created ALEC and is the seed that virtually destroyed America’s economy when regulations were dismantled and caution was tossed to the winds of desire and speculation. Where were the Teabaggers when Bush was blowing a budget surplus? Their yellow flag befits their cowardly yellow intentions and racists rants. Teabaggers are the “whores” of the rich, simple minded peasants. It takes a moron to do the bidding of the rich, to demand more tax breaks for the rich at the expense of the middle class. It takes an idiot to vote against ones best interest. Is the solution lobotomy for poor Republicans?

Conservatives, Right Wing politics and Fundamentalist religion has worked hard to render the American people more open to manipulation and control. The result is a vile blend of unregulated industry and religious theocracy. This is great news for the rest of the world who waits like vultures to pick America’s economic bones clean as we become dumber and dumber and more technologically unsophisticated.

Are Americans going to be reduced to third world ignorant consumers for the rest of the worlds markets? The American Taliban (Conservatives, Republicans and Fundamentalist) may be happy with the thoughts of life in the 16th Century, dirt roads and living in caves but I’m not interested in such ignorance and BS! I would prefer we move America forward not backward.

ROMNEY’S SECRET PLANS – MORE TAX BREAKS FOR RICH

Monday, April 16th, 2012

Palm Beach – Last night, behind closed doors, speaking at a $50,000 a plate private fundraiser for Willard Romney. Romney was overhead by two reporters from the Wall Street Journal and NBC News, telling his rich friends he was going to slash 5 trillion dollars in services for middle class and poor Americans to give 5 trillion in tax breaks to the richest 1%.

Openly, in public, Romney has said nothing about slashing 5 trillion in agencies assisting Americans. Among his secret plans, Romney plans to abolish HUD and other government agencies. Romney’s comments are notable because the presumptive Republican nominee has refused to go into specifics about how he would implement his tax and budget cuts as president.

Mitt Romney offered new details Sunday on how he might pay for the 20 percent income tax cut he’s proposed for all Americans if he’s elected president.

“I’m going to probably eliminate for high-income people the second-home mortgage deduction,” Romney said, adding that he would also likely eliminate deductions for state income and property taxes as well, great news for the wealthy in attendance.

Romney also told donors he might eliminate the Department of Housing and Urban Development, saying it “might not be around later.” He also said he would downsize the Department of Education, suggesting he would “consolidate it with another agency or perhaps make it a heck of a lot smaller,” though he insisted he wouldn’t get rid of it entirely.

When it was discovered that the Press had overhead his comments, a Romney aide, who declined to be named discussing the former governor’s comments, said the candidate was merely throwing out policy proposals.

President Barack Obama’s re-election campaign quickly pounced on Romney’s comments.

“Apparently Gov. Romney believes only high dollar donors have a right to know what programs he would cut,” an Obama campaign spokesman, said in an email to reporters.

GOP Wing-Nuts Attack Obama Family Christmas Card

Friday, December 23rd, 2011

GOP bimbo, Sarah Palin and GOP high priest, Rush Limbaugh, attacked the Obama family Christmas card calling it “unChristmas’. Ms Palin pointed out the failure of the card to include the Christian symbol of the Christmas tree. Sadly, someone failed to tell Ms. Palin that the Christmas tree is a pagan symbol and not a Christian symbol.

It is amazing how ignorant GOP operatives Sarah and Rush are in regards to the facts. Both failed to point out that neither the Bush nor Reagain Christmas cards included a Christmas tree. But facts dont matter when GOP minions take low blows at President Obama, simple lies will do.
