American Exceptionalism: GOP Playing Patriot While Screwing America

Two Years ago President Obama, in a primary debate, put down the other contestants by saying “their ideas were mere replays of late night discussions in the college dormitories of the 1960’s”. Well I was in those late night dorm discussions and it is to bad Obama wasn’t around then because he would recognize the latest incarnation of the conservative game of “playing patriot”. But then again a REAL Progressive, which Obama is not, would answer these sunshine patriots of the right with some counter rhetoric!

Why don’t these same big mouth Republicans believe in making a buck in America instead of shipping their investments and our jobs overseas. Frequently these singers of the  “Corporate Elitist Globalization Internationale“ even ship our jobs and their investments to the very enemies of America of the 1960’s!  They even ship our jobs to Vietnam while our dead soldiers decay in the ground below the land they invest in! What happened to all the dominoes?

GOP: Bankruptcy Is Good For States But Not Individuals

Republicans want to allow state governments to go bankrupt so they can destroy civil service unions! Strange isn’t it that they fought tooth and nail to make it harder for individuals to declare bankruptcy! Former Republican Speaker of the House Newt Gingrich is leading the fight. There is a method to their madness. They want to empower the corporate class to siphon off the life blood of middle class Americans.

The issue is to increase not just the finances of the rich but to undermine the security of the vast Silent Majority of Americans –  our great Middle Class! When the unions are undermined then the power of the corporate class interests grows since progressive politicians receive support from unions! With less better paying jobs available, the wages of all Americans can be reduced while the profits of our social betters increase! Ah yes this is what they call “Freedom”! The freedom to serve the Economic Royalists and their right wing social engineering experiment!

Obama’s Idealism: Presidential Asset Or Liability

I understand where President Obama is coming from! I just wish he would recognize he is facing Republicans not fellow Democrats. This is not “silly season in politics” when right wingers, in their arrogance of self entitlement, talk about second amendment solutions! Nor when the Texas Governor hints at secession! But then again we had a former Governor of Alaska give a speech to the Alaskan Independence Party just months before she became McCain’s running mate!

  • Where was the news media to attack Sarah Palin for this?
  • For that matter where was Obama and the Democrats?
  • Why didn’t Obama wave the flag in the face of secessionists?
  • Why didn’t Obama call for “law and order” in response to Michele Bachmann and her treasonous calls for rebellion against the democratically elected government of the United States of America?

Can you hear the “MEOW”?

When will Obama wake up? Change comes about in society not simply by passing laws but when the President acts as “Pontifex Maximus” of the nation. He defines the issues of our times as Franklin D. Roosevelt and JFK did and even Ronald Reagan though for Republicans! This requires that Obama not resign as “Campaigner in Chief”.

Bernie Sanders Or Howard Dean In 2012

The time has come for “Change We Can Believe In”! President Obama has the audacity to attack the base that elected him when he spent the last 18 months kissing Joe Lieberman, Ben Nelson and Blanche Lincoln’s butts! So how is that working out for you Mr. President? Joe Lieberman even campaigned against Obama in the last election. Now Obama has the audacity to attack his own base. The problem is that President Obama, Harry Reid and Nancy Pelosi are “playing” progressive inside the confines of the “Corporate Sandbox”.

The Audacity Of Impotence – Charge Of The Castrati Brigade

Barrack Obama cared more about the support of Joe Lieberman and Ben Nelson then the progressive base that elected him. The Democrats could really show up the Republicans now by forcing a vote on the Middle Class Tax Cut but all we hear is their pathetic “MEOW”! Now we are supposed to save him and Harry Reid. Harry Reid the guy who took loads of money from the Health Care Industry. And you wonder why we don’t have single payer or even a public option! Blance Lincoln, was another winner from this special interest. See the link above to www.opensecrets.org

Christine O’Donnell Witchraft (UPDATE)

Sarah Palin’s fellow traveler, Christine O’Donnell has some more questions to answer. What I find amazing is that she said she was on a “satanic altar”. This is not a practice of the  positive religion of Wicca but some really dark scary stuff. Wiccans are not satanists! Except of course to Christian fundamentalists who do not make a distinction between witchcraft and satanism. From my reading on this subject a woman is “used” to lie on the altar naked while a satanic priest performs the black mass. Yes this occult but not Wiccan but as Christine O’Donnell says in her own words, “satanic”!

Republican’s Definition Of “Freedom” And It’s Danger To the Middle Class

When I hear Republicans talk about “freedom” I need to take a Rolaids because my stomach turns acidic. Tim Palenty used this terminology at a recent meeting of the conservative group CPAC! Actually this is classic Republican rhetoric!  The “Freedom” that they so prize is not freedom for the American Middle Class!

In this era where corporations are defined as “persons” I find my personal freedom under further attack! Just this year we have the record recalls of Toyota cars for multiple reasons.  Also the diabetes drug “Avandia” has been labeled by many as the cause of heart problems! CBS News says that the company that makes Avandia, “Glaxo Smith Kline” knew about the danger for years!
