Does GOP Have A Plan For 2016?

2016 is quickly approaching…….it is never too early to speculate on what the GOP will be doing for that election….Hell the MSM does it daily…..so why not IST?

There has been lots of talk of what will be most important to the GOP…..will it try to reach out to women….or Hispanics or even African-Americans?  My guess is no to all those……what they will focus on will be something trivial that they can use for mileage and slogans……….

Juan Cole has stated what he thinks will be their emphasis……..

1.  With a few noble exceptions like Sen. John McCain (R-AZ), Republican Party spokesmen, Republican politicians, and Republican media like Fox Cable News, defended torture.  This defense was mounted from so many directions by so many Republicans that it now seems indisputable that the party stands for the principle of rectal hydration.  Since torture is illegal in American law, presumably they want to repeal the 5th and 8th amendments to the constitution.

2.  The Republican Party stands for the principle that elections should be stolen by the rich who pay the most for them.  The new bill multiplies permitted donations by a factor of ten.

3.  The GOP wants the US taxpayer to be made to bail out risky, casino-like “derivatives.”  After the 2008 crash, caused by some corrupt Wall Street financiers stealing our money, Congress had removed FDIC protection from the riskier derivatives.  The GOP, plotting in smoke filled rooms far from the light,  just put the taxpayer right back in the sights the next time the bankers need a bailout.  The provision was actually written by CitiBank, which won’t get my business.  They think, much better to gamble with the taxpayers’ money; they would, but why would GOP lawmakers agree to be their ventriloquist’s dummy?

4.  The bill blocks aid to the Palestine authority if it becomes a member of UN agencies without Israeli permission.  Palestine has been recognized as a non-member observer state at the UN, and is gradually joining key committees.  It likely will sign the Rome Statute, join the International Criminal Court, and sue Israel for war crimes.  But in the fantasyland of Congress, none of this may be allowed to happen.  The PA has other sources of money than the US, and all this provision does is further weaken the ability of the US to do effective diplomacy.

5.  This fall, most Republicans ran on putting troops back into Iraq and getting even more deeply involved in the Syrian civil war than the US already is.  This is a plank in their platform that leads to sanguinary wars.

Cole is a pretty sharp individual…..so what do you think the GOP will be thumping their chest over for 2016?

Just How Pathetic Is The GOP?

The prez has made his case and now it is time for the Rights version of Looney Tunes………A question that us Lefties are always asking and then we find a reason why we believe they are mind numbing idiots….and this post is no different.

The GOP likes to hold up different people as just how diverse the party has become……..the one that gets the most exposure is Ayotte, a woman who thinks the GOP is just swell and I would bet that the new senator Ernst, you remember her….the ball cutter…..will be the new Ayotte…….then there is the black doctor that is a good GOPer, Ben Carson….and there is where this post is leading……

Ben Carson, the pediatric neurosurgeon and conservative darling who looks to be gearing up for a long-shot 2016 presidential run, has some thoughts about voter fraud. “Anyone caught involved in voter fraud should be immediately deported and have his citizenship revoked,” Carson wrote in a column on immigration reform for the far-right site WND.com.

He made it without a smile…….apparently this person does not understand how any of this works…….could learned person like a doctor be that STUPID?

But wait!  That is not the only moronic statement he has made over time…….

  • “Obamacare is really, I think, the worst thing that has happened in this nation since slavery,” Carson said at the Values Voter Summit last year. “It is slavery, in a way.”
  • “Read Mein Kampf, and read the works of Vladimir Lenin,” if you want to understand Obama’s plan for America, Carson said in a recent interview with Newsmax. Mein Kampf, of course, was the Nazi manifesto written by Adolf Hitler a decade before he took power.
  • America today is “very much like Nazi Germany,” Carson said in March. “You know, you had a government using its tools to intimidate the population. We now live in a society where people are afraid to say what they actually believe.”
  • If Democrats remain in control of the Senate, “there may be so much anarchy going on” in 2016 that elections can’t be held, Carson told Alan Colmes in September.
  • “I think most people when they finish that course, they’d be ready to go sign up for ISIS,” Carson said of an AP history curriculum that conservatives say is anti-American.
  • “What’s happening with the veterans is a gift from God,” Carson said earlier this year on Fox about the VA health care scandal, in which some vets waited over a year for hospital beds. Carson argued the scandal was welcome because it demonstrated the evils of big government running health care.
  • Carson lamented to WNC.com this summer that people he meets on the street don’t know about the Benghazi embassy attack controversy. ”And these people vote. That’s the sad thing,” he added.

The man is a wealth of stupidity!

Sad that many of the rank and file believe this guy is some sort of prophet……he is a doctor….would let this man operate on you?

This party just keeps getting more pathetic with each passing election.

Addicting Info – Here’s Why Conservatives ALWAYS Support The Police When They Shoot Unarmed Black Men

With the wealth of cops shooting unarmed black kids and the run to support the cops that do the shooting….I would ask …”what the f*ck is going on in this country?”

Maybe this article can help you understand the confusion you may be having over this issue.

Are You Sick Of All The Patriotic Bullsh*t!

Opinion from the desk of the Editor

 

WARNING:  This post contains a vulgar language that may offend some of my readers sensibilities…..but there is only ONE way to get this point across….so if my reader is offended I apologize and they need to get over it!

 

This post is for all of you that think using the terms “patriotic” or “Patriotism” is somehow cleansing your soul of responsibility for the condition of our veterans care……actions speak louder than words and so far MOST Americans are cowards!  That is right….I said……COWARDS!

You thump your scrawny chests and yell about this person is a socialist or that person is a Muslim but when it comes to the vets returning home you are a bullshit artist.  Why?  You know what shape the veterans care is and yet you keep voting for slogans and bullshit solution………..you vote for the biggest cowardly cocksuckers on the planet……..you, in your mindless state think that all will be alright because there are charities the vets can turn to for help……Really?  Charities?

YOU by your thoughtless voting have done this to our veterans….,you mindless TWATS!  These charities, most of them, are doing all they can and should be congratulated…..but the point is the country did this to our vets and the country should be held responsible……by that I mean YOU and the worthless ASSHOLES you elect!

I thought that after Vietnam the nation and itrs people had maybe learned a lesson…..WRONG!  They are still the same coward pricks that crapped on the vets then as they are doing NOW!

It does not end there.  What about the vets that return without injuries of any kind….how is their reintegration going?

A new study released Tuesday says half of U.S. troops return to civilian life with untreated mental and physical illnesses, and one in every 10 has thought of suicide or planned to take their lives.

The survey of Los Angeles County veterans showed that 80 percent of veterans didn’t have a job when they left the military, and close to a quarter earned salaries at or below the poverty level.

It also discovered that 40 percent of the veterans surveyed hadn’t made arrangements for a permanent place to live before leaving the armed services, contributing to veterans’ homelessness.

Conrats America!  Not only are your a screaming asshole to our wounded vets but you are doing NOTHING for the ones that return without major medical problems….Could you people be more PATHETIC?  The country is getting more so with each new war….it had rather ignore the problems of the vets than work for a goddam solution.

So I ask you……ARE YOU FED UP WITH ALL THE PATRIOTIC BULLSHIT?

 

Can You Believe The Stupidity?

Those mindless twats at FOX News have done and said some moronic stuff…..but this piece is disgusting and pathetic…..but I have come to expect that from them…….

They have been all over the fact that a woman pilot from UAE was part of th4e airstrikes on SIS positions……

Anyone that puts any credence in anything they have to say on FOX is far beyond STUPID……approaching brain dead…….

For years now the GOP has been obsessed with voter fraud……every time they lose an election they cry voter fraud…..and now that they control so many states they are trying desperately to rig the election process in their favor……but really…..just how rampant is voter fraud?

Glad you asked!

Is the South Dragging the Rest of the Nation Down? | Alternet

First let me answer the question……unequivocally………..YES!

The South is a hot bed of conservative politics….well that is not accurate…..it is hot bed of Tea Party politics……and for decades I have wondered just what they were doing…they seem to vote to screw themselves and then continue to screw themselves…..I have asked where is the rationale?

I read this piece and thought that it would explain it situation a bit………
