Red states suffered higher rate of federal budget cuts between 2009-2013: report

Red state voters loathe the president and anything Democratic…….they vote for people that promise to slice federal spending and will be a better day for everyone…..

The problem is in their haste to send mental midgets to DC they are systematically screwing themselves……does that speak to civic illiteracy?

Seriously? DoD Essay Competition?

The US is all over itself with praise for the recently dead Saudi king……at what point is a ruling family that subscribes to punishment like beheading or stoning or lashes worthy of a contest to honor it?  Or a society that does not allow women much lee way….in essence keeps them as 2nd class citizens.

I realize that this is more about geopolitics than the truth……the US has never been one for the truth if it gets in the way of BS foreign policy……

To what purpose is this competition?

Sorry, but I have a large problem with type of pure BS and propaganda……

Henry A. Giroux | The Spectacle of Illiteracy and the Crisis of Democracy

There are many here in the US that see the demise of democracy, as we like to call it,…..both on the Left and Right are predicting the end of democracy…..

I have been bitching about this for many years…..I blame it on the laziness of the American voter…..this article addresses those concerns and explains it where we all can understand this complex situation…..

Boehner, Netanyahu and George Washington’s Farewell Warning | Nomadic Politics

BiBi the puppet master will come to DC and get to lie and bang around to our Congress, hopefully they will stay awake long enough to get in the cash line after the speech…..

Ike warned about the power of the Military-Industrial Complex   (M-IC) and NO one heeded his words……and then there is Washington, the man not the town, that all Americans, especially the Right wing, loves and adores as a Founding Father…..but he made some predictions that hold true today…..and NO one heeds his words either……

Why is that?

Please check out this piece and comment….I want to hear your thoughts.

Media Shouldn’t Be Fooled By Fake Neutrality Bill Backed By Broadband Industry | Research | Media Matters for America

There have been many a post about the attempt to control the internet……but there is a new attack and the claims that it will protect the internet are BS!…..most of them are put forward by the broadband industry like Comcast, the owner of NBC/MSNBC/CNBC…….funny I have not heard much reporting by those on this new attempt to control the internet….I wonder why?

GOP: Is The Game Afoot?

Holy crap!  Did I somehow step through “the Looking Glass”?   Is the GOP trying to re-define itself ahead of the 2016 election?

First we have news that there is a push back on the opposition to immigration reform….then the ladies pull their support for an anti-abortion bill in essence killing the bill (for now)……and then I got word that there was another vote that shocked me…….

I got this piece of news from Ace news group for whom I write op-eds from time to time……..

#AceWorldNews – WASHINGTON:Jan.22: Sometimes snippets of news just have to be published and this snippet is just one of those and is just as The Hill reported.

The Senate on Wednesday voted that “climate change is real and is not a hoax” as Democrats used the Keystone XL pipeline debate to force votes on the politically charged issue ahead of the 2016 elections.

The Senate on Wednesday voted 98-1 in favor of a an amendment stating that “climate change is real and is not a hoax.”

The provision offered by Sen. Sheldon Whitehouse (D-R.I.) to put Republicans on record about climate change ahead of the 2016 election passed with near unanimous support, with only Sen. Roger Wicker (R-Miss.), the chairman of the campaign committee for Senate Republicans, voting no.

First, Wicker is my Senator and I would expect nothing different from this big business crony……

Okay, what the Hell is going on with the GOP?

I thought is that they are playing a game to make them look like a real party and not some group of bumbling morons……all this is to look good to the groups that they have lost in the past….women, environmentalists, immigrants……it is all a game, in my mind, a well thought out game…..but a game none the less.

The GOP is moving at record speed in this redefining operation…..but will it last?

Even the d/bags in the Tea Party seem to be playing along with this dice roll……it is all about 2016……nothing to do with the reality of things….just to win an election and have TOTAL power…..this may not last long…..until the gamers get tired of playing.

So whatcha think?  Is A Game Afoot?
