Take your pick. The list of men vying for the nomination of their party to run for President of the United States is full of swaggering buffoons, liars, adulterers, and all in the hip-pocket of some special interest groups or small list of very, very wealthy greed-mongers.
You can join a picket line of protestors. You can sign a pledge. You can write a letter to the editor. You can chastise one group over another. You can villify one political party, then put on your blinders and up-lift the other political party.
Every candidate representing right-wing positions is extremely cirtical of President Barack Obama. Every pol who wants greed and selfishness to rule America, loves to nit-pick Barack Obama. Every American fascist thinks the most important --indeed, the only-- issue to be concerned with is getting Barack Obama out of the White House. My conclusion to all of this: Wow, he must be doing something correctly! The Republican Party as we knew it back in the day, is dead. It has been replaced by the most selfish and greedy ideology in the history of the United States of America.
Wouldn't you right-wingers love to get some dirt on Obama, find some hankie-pankie like that of the likes of Newt Gingrich, Herman Cain, Ronald Reagan, and the rest of the faux moralists who have led from the extreme right-wing [and kept their trysts and adultery in the closet]? Oh, if only that "socialist" black man could be found to have an immoral life like the rest of the politicians who have vied for the White House, some succeeding. Pity the selfish/rich right-wingers! They are stuck with an opponent who is moral! The audacity of that Negro!
1. That humans are not influencing climate change.
2. Being gay is a decision made by individuals, not inherited at birth.
I severely criticized the use of the fracking method of extracting natural gas. Its dangers to the environment are obvious, yet it continues. But its horrible impact on peoples' lives is becoming more and more obvious. Yet mining companies and utilities gain more and more permission to continue on with this deadly practice. After states all over the U.S. have had horrid examples of physical and biological damage to humans, the beat goes on to use fracking to draw out more natural gas. The extraction via fracking is anything but natural, it is a catastrophe. Wyoming is the latest state to have human bodies wasted by fracking. When will it ever end? When will we ever learn?
I gave explicit examples of the long history of immoral and unethical behaviors by Newt Gingrich. Yet he leads in the polls to receive the Republican nomination to run for President. Huh? More revelations and testimony by members of his own party are being revealed every day. Newt is not suited for anything that requires trust, honesty, and reliable human endeavor. He is a disgrace, not only as a candidate, but he is a disgrace as a human being.
Today in Saudi Arabia a woman was executed for practicing sorcery. What are the laws in Saudi Arabia concerning sorcery? They are not defined. That is left to a judge. The Bush family [yes, THAT Bush family] has been cozy with the Saudi family, Saudi oil and other business, etc. since about 1940. Prescott Bush smuggled oil from Saudi Arabia into Nazi Germany. How's that for creative capitalism? It was against the embargo placed on Nazi Germany by the Allies. A little law never stopped the Bush family. This is how the Bush family fortune was established and fluorished.
George H.W. Bush today sits on Saudi boards. His son saw to it that America made a special effort to protect Saudi Arabia. The powerful Bush family has always encouraged Americans to ignore or look the other way concerning Saudi Arabia's horrible government and laws. Saudi Arabia is a draconian nation. It is like something out of the Middle Ages or worse. Yet we blame Palestinians, whose land was taken from them to form the nation of Israel, for their actions in the Middle East. Love the Saudis, hate the Palestinians. That is the mantra of right-wing, capitalism greed and selectivity.
Instead of working on the payroll tax cut bill, or a jobs bill, or a deficit reduction plan, President Obama decided to spend his time in a one-on-one interview with 60 min. In that interview, Steve Kroft actually asked some interesting questions. President Obama seemed like he was conceding that it was going to take more than one term and more than one president to solve our economic problems. I couldn't agree more. President Obama is certainly not solving them in this term.
President Obama is also accusing members of Congress of skewing their vision because they are not looking past the next election. President Obama is a clear example of also not looking past the next election. I he were, he would pass along his decision on the Keystone pipeline. This could create tens of thousands of jobs throughout the country and not need a government subsidy. But the president would rather not create the jobs and believe that he is saving the environment from pollution and not create the jobs. This will create a greater dependency on government because the people who could be working may be collecting food stamps and receiving government handouts in lieu of a paycheck. This is Obama's vision for America.
We have a a couple of fun events coming up this week!
On Thursday, we have our Theatrical Thursday movie! We will be watching "The Smurfs". The film will begin at 6:00 PM.
And on Friday, we have our Holiday Cookie Decorating Party! It will run from 3:30 - 4:30 PM. We'll provide the cookies, the icing, and all the toppings - you only need to bring your creativity (and your sweet tooth!). Cookies are available while supplies last, and are 1 per person.
We hope to see you here for both fantastic events!!!!!
Go to any search engine. Part of the multitude of right-wing media that is so dominant in the U.S. got it right in advising Newt Gingrich in his run for the presidency. Check this at any search engine: Michael Savage and Newt Gingrich. Wonderful stuff comes up.
It isn't enough that Newt Gingrich has displayed the most horrible examples of immorality and unethcal behavior, he has even infuriated and disgusted one of the most crude right-wing media screamers: Michael Savage. It was invevitable that these two low-lives would cross paths. They both reside down at the bottom of the pit. They are both bottom-feeders. Both are examples of the worst in America.
Get this film and watch it: "Casino Jack," starring Kevin Spacey and Kelly Preston. It was produced in 2009 and is available on dvd. It tells the truth about right-wing PR man, Jack Abramoff, and his trek to prison. He brought to jail with him the former Republican leader in the House of Representatives, Tom DeLay.
All the slimey right-wing political leaders of recent vintage are clearly in sight: Senator John McCain, George W. Bush, Ronald Reagan, Karl Rove, etc. The list is long, and the specifics of under-the-table schemes to raise money are played out for you. Some are marched off to jail, some are shown in their complicity.
