Closing Thought–07Feb22

THe GOP has been brutally honest….well some GOPers…..that all their attempts to limit Dem voters is their strategy…..gerrymandering, voters suppression, etc etc are all attempts to remove any GOP opponents from ever winning another election.

Arizona (go figure) is just the most recent attempts……

Arizona Republicans have spent the past couple weeks since the legislative session began introducing a red wave of voter suppression measures. House Bill 2596, which dropped Friday, would eliminate all early voting, emergency voting centers, and no-excuse mail-in voting. The latter has existed in Arizona since 1991, so longer than the Martin Luther King Jr. holiday.

The House bill would also ban the use of electronic voting machines and require that all ballots are counted by human hands. You might think that would take forever, but they’ll have 24 hours to do it!

Republicans had traditionally held the advantage in ballots cast prior to Election Day. That changed in 2020, so obviously early voting is corrupt and must end. GOP Rep. Shawna Bolick proposed the measure that would only permit emergency voting in “times of war, civil unrest or a natural disaster.” These are obviously the only real emergencies that would prevent someone from voting on Election Day. In real America, emergency voting centers are only for upcoming hurricanes and nuclear wars.

Some of the Republicans who sponsored this bill also reportedly supported and even cheered the Arizona fraudit. A total of seven bills passed out of committee along party lines. State Sen. Wendy Rogers (a QAnon bigot) filed a bill that would prohibit drop boxes with only the most narrow exception for voters with disabilities. Arizonians shouldn’t have to disclose their disability status, and the lack of early voting might make the lines on Election Day a burden even for those who don’t fit Rogers’ likely narrow definition of “disabled.”

This is what we get when the game HALO is more important than voting….the loss of voting rights can be laid only at the feet of the voter.

What will it take to get the lazy toads from behind their game control and vote to preserve our society?

Welcome To Trumpistan

This is what the state of Florida should be known….Trumpistan…..thanx to the authoritarian BS by the governor….De Santis.

The gov and the Repub legislature is giving America a true look at the heart of the GOP

It has been a long and painful month in the Florida legislature for opponents of the state’s Trumpist governor Ron DeSantis and his loyal band of rightwing Republicans. A slew of bills has advanced attacking everything from diversity rights, abortion protections and free speech in schools, in addition to a proposal that would legally shield white people from feeling “discomfort” over the state’s racist past.

And last Wednesday, an anti-masker physician, hand picked by the governor and apathetic about the value of Covid-19 vaccines, was backed unanimously by a Republican senate panel as the next surgeon-general following a walk-out by Democratic politicians frustrated by Joseph Ladapo’s evasiveness.

To hear DeSantis tell it, the “freedom state” of Florida is merely following the will of a populist citizenry in defying the perceived tyranny of the federal government, determined to protect liberty in the face of a deadly pandemic that has claimed more than 64,000 of their fellow residents, and standing up against the “indoctrination” of children.

The issues that Republicans see as a priority for Florida are red meat to DeSantis’s conservative base. They include the 15-week abortion ban bill, which received a chaotic hearing on Thursday, and moves to give parents more say over classroom curriculum and control of school libraries. In Polk county this week, education officials went from school to school pulling 16 books flagged by a conservative parents’ group as inappropriate, including Khaled Hosseini’s 2003 bestseller The Kite Runner.

They include bills to strengthen the governor’s fierce anti-immigrant stance by locking out from state or local government business any company involved in the transportation of undocumented migrants.

https://www.theguardian.com/us-news/2022/jan/31/florida-republicans-draconian-bills

Florida is becoming the poster child for authoritarian Repubs in other Red States….

Will the voters allow this screaming trip into chaos continue?

How far will these anti-democratic forces go?

Good question right?

Is Trump and his worshipers trying to destroy democratic rule?

Yes they are!

Hows can this be?

“Citizens do believe what they are hearing and if they hear it long enough and consistently enough and if that’s all they hear, they absolutely don’t think it’s a lie, they think it’s the truth,” Walter said.

“You know, they’re good people,” she added. “They are trying to do what they think is right. It’s the leadership that’s cynical. It’s the leadership that knows better who is feeding them lies consistently. They’re priming their supporters to believe that democracy isn’t worth defending because they don’t want democracy anymore.”

We the voter need to get our collective heads out of our butts and go to the polls on election day and send these political slugs out to pasture.

Do you still need proof that the GOP is down a rabbit hole?

Then this ought to put the question to bed.

Wisconsin is a hot bed to stupid…and now it gets even more stupid and pathetic…..

A GOP gubernatorial candidate in Wisconsin is calling on Republicans to “hire mercenaries” to engage in “ballot harvesting” to win 2022 elections.

Rebecca Kleefisch, who served as lieutenant governor for eight years and is vying to unseat Democratic Gov. Tony Evers next year, made the comments on Saturday during a speech to Republicans in Door County, according to audio of her remarks obtained by the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel.

The newspaper reported that Kleefisch “said the methods she needs to use to win bother her so much she will need to wash herself with steel wool.”

“If her campaign strategy works, she said she would quickly sign legislation overhauling how elections are conducted,” according to Journal Sentinel.

“We execute with excellence, we will beat them at their own game. And the next morning, we all wake up, take a shower with steel wool, and then, after swearing in in January … (the Legislature) is going to pass all these bills again, and then I’m going to sign them all. And we will never do elections like that again, but this is how we win,” Kleefisch said.

“If you are recording, I don’t want you to put this part online to share with Democrats, OK? It is about election strategy,” she added. “What I’m about to say may feel ugly to you guys.”

According to the newspaper, Kleefisch then talked about “ballot harvesting” and hiring “mercenaries.”

Creeping Neo-Fascism

I remember the days when the country was warned about the ‘creeping socialism’ of the American Left….the ‘creeping’ was more like an anemic crawl……but now this country has a new ‘creeper’ it should be more worried about……that of ‘creeping Neo-fascism’…..

Do not get me wrong I do not like labeling those as ‘fascists’ just like I do not appreciate the label ‘socialist’….but the GOP seems to be heading in a direction we have seen before.

The way to fight this trend is to fight the neo-liberal trend….

Neoliberalism can be defined as a political approach that “seeks to transfer the control of economic factors from the public sector to the private sector” — and strives to “place limits on government spending, government regulation, and public ownership.” Neoliberalism can be described more candidly as vast, systemic, nonstop plunder.

The plunder is enmeshed in politics. In the real world, economic power is political power. And privatizing political power amounts to undermining democracy.

After four decades of neoliberal momentum, we can see the wreckage all around us: the cumulative effects, destroying uncounted human lives deprived of adequate healthcare, education, housing, economic security and existence free of predatory monetizing. While Republican politicians usually led the wrecking crews, their Democratic counterparts often served as enablers or initiated their own razing projects.

As its policies gradually degrade the standard of living and quality of life for most people, neoliberalism provides a poisonous fuel for right-wing propaganda and demagoguery. Although corporate media outlets routinely assert that “moderate” Democrats are best positioned to block the right’s advances, the corporate-oriented policies of those Democrats — including trade deals, deregulation and privatization — have aided rather than impeded far-right faux populism

In 2021, the Best Way to Fight Neofascist Republicans is to Fight Neoliberal Democrats

Your vote does count…just as much as it should….but we need to start somewhere…..

Do your part to protect this country and its people.

Do not ignore the trends……So help the nation rid ourselves to this slow moving cancer.

Closing Thought–16Aug21

Would you wear a t-shirt that says MORON?

Well the GOP is selling shirts to raise money that state “MORON”……

House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-Calif.) is attempting to fundraise off House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) calling him a “moron” last month for criticizing a mask mandate in Congress’ lower chamber.

And it’s going exactly how’d you’d expect.

Several reporters noticed on Thursday that McCarthy, through WinRed, was selling red T-shirts with the word “moron” printed on them in large bold letters.

Below the word, the shirt says: “A term coined by Nancy Pelosi referring to freedom-loving Americans who oppose mask mandates.”

The call to action on the WinRed page urges people to donate between $25 and $2,900, the maximum allowed.

“Nancy Pelosi JUST CALLED Kevin McCarthy a ‘moron’ for opposing the mask mandate. You’re a top patriot and HE NEEDS YOU to get this t-shirt to oppose HER & the Radical Socialist Left,” the page reads.

People online mocked McCarthy for hawking the T-shirts, with many people pointing out that the whole thing felt like a giant self-own.

.@GOPLeader Kevin McCarthy is selling t-shirts emblazoned with the word ‘moron.’ Well, Kevin, if the t-shirt fits,” one Twitter user wrote.

“I thought I was having a bad day, then I saw Kevin McCarthy is trying to get his supporters to buy shirts that say moron on them,” another person tweeted.

“Oh, this is rich. This is REAL. Kevin McCarthy is fundraising by getting his constituents and supporters to wear a red shirt that says ‘MORON’ on it. They’re going to be easy to spot,” one Twitter user chimed in with.

Most people will stop reading after the word MORON…..

For once the GOP will be telling the truth!

Whose Afraid Of Critical Race?

GOP/Repubs/conservatives that’s who…..and especially old white people….but then  the GOP has always been afraid of history.

If they are a Right winger then they all are running in a panic over this issue.

For those that spend their time worrying about the Kardashians are doing let set your mind in motion…..

Critical race theory is an academic concept that is more than 40 years old. The core idea is that race is a social construct, and that racism is not merely the product of individual bias or prejudice, but also something embedded in legal systems and policies.

The basic tenets of critical race theory, or CRT, emerged out of a framework for legal analysis in the late 1970s and early 1980s created by legal scholars Derrick Bell, Kimberlé Crenshaw, and Richard Delgado, among others.

Look for this issue to be a major diversion for Repubs in the 2022 election. But just why are the Repubs so afraid of this theory?

People like that idiot from Arkansas, Tom Cotton…..

Speaking at an online forum sponsored by the conservative Heritage Foundation, Sen. Tom Cotton (R-AR) slammed what he says is the military’s incorporation of critical race theory, saying it will create division among soldiers.

https://www.rawstory.com/tom-cotton-2653630053/

Then there is the disturbing prophecy from Megyan Kelly Show….

“It was bad enough when they were indoctrinating college students, but college students tend to be more left-leaning, and their experimenting with ideas, and I think once rationality sets in, they tend to make up their own minds one way in the other,” Kelly said.

“But now, we’re seeing in today’s day and ages, they’re infecting — and forget corporate America, that’s already spread, sports and so on — but they’re infecting kids. Young children, they’re indoctrinating with these divisive messages. Our military! And then those things — it’s abuse towards children, and it’s endangering the men and women in the military, and our country as a result.”

(mediate.com)

What is it about CRT that has conservatives so babbling upset?

A recent poll tries to explain their concern.

The survey of 1,592 U.S. adults, which was conducted from June 22 to 24, set out to determine how closely the public’s opinion of the term “critical race theory” aligns with a central idea behind it. To do that, Yahoo News and YouGov asked respondents whether they’d “heard of critical race theory” — and followed up with the ones who had heard of it by asking if “critical race theory is something students should be exposed to in school.”

It turns out only about half of Americans (52 percent) are even familiar with the term “critical race theory,” according to the poll, and political engagement is likely to account for that exposure. As Time magazine reported in a recent cover story, “conservative advocacy groups, legal organizations and state legislatures” have “mounted a campaign to weaponize” the term because they believe that “fighting it will be a winning electoral message.”

As a result, awareness is much higher among white Americans who identify as conservative (71 percent) or liberal (70 percent) than it is among white moderates (48 percent), African Americans (42 percent) or Latino Americans (39 percent).

Indoctrination?

That small minded idiot from Arkansas got his way and with the help of the d/bag Dem, Manchin….

Sen. Tom Cotton, R-Ark., introduced the “Stop CRT Act” in an effort to prevent tax dollars from being used to teach the controversial set of ideas in public school classrooms.

“They want to teach our children that America is not a good nation but a racist nation. Those teachings are wrong and our tax dollars should not support them,” Cotton said ahead of the vote. “My amendment will ensure that federal funds aren’t used to indoctrinate children as young as pre-K to hate America.”

All Senate Democrats voted against the ban, aside from West Virginia moderate Joe Manchin, who gave the GOP the vote it needed to successfully pass the amendment during series of votes late Tuesday and early Wednesday.

https://justthenews.com/government/congress/senate-passed-cotton-amendment-ban-federal-dollars-funding-critical-race-theory

Good to see that Manchin found his footing on this so he can stay in the spotlight….for me he is a worthless lump of manure….

But why is the GOP denying our past?

The hoods are off, and Republicans are embracing the white supremacist “replacement theory.”

If you’re dismissing this as fear-mongering or click-bait, you probably missed Newt Gingrich, the former Speaker of the House and renowned adulterer, espousing replacement theory rhetoric on Fox News earlier this week while talking to host Maria Baritromo, who always has time to offer a platform to dangerous conspiracy peddling. Speaking about Mexican immigrants coming to America during the pandemic, Gingrich said the “radical left” wants to “get rid of the rest of us” and would “love to drown traditional, classic Americans with as many people as they can who know nothing of American history, nothing of American tradition, nothing of the rule of law.”

He wasn’t talking about Donald Trump, notorious for being historically ignorant and profoundly incurious, but about those of us with darker skin, who are never seen as “traditional” or “classic” or “real Americans.” Gingrich, a craven political opportunist, parroted the talking points associated with “the great replacement” theory, also known as “white genocide,” which stipulates the white race and “Western civilization” are in dire threat of being weakened and ultimately usurped by immigrants of color, Muslims, feminists, and gays.

https://www.thedailybeast.com/the-racist-theory-that-inspired-murderers-is-now-gop-dogma

Like I have stated….GOP is running scared.

CRT should be a major election campaign and the use of indoctrination will be the new word for the 2022 elections…..(seems we must have a new slogan for ever election…and now 2022 has its own)

For me I believe that history should not be taught sanitized….we should be given all our history…..the good, the bad and the ugly.

But why all the hoopla around CRT?

Few Americans can define what critical race theory actually is — an academic framework that originated among legal scholars in the 1970s to help explain how racism permeates American institutions — but it’s not surprising that it has emerged as a bogeyman on the political right. Increasingly, the Republican base is politically animated by white racial grievances, which is a major reason why misrepresentations of critical race theory — “every white person is racist” or “certain children are inherently bad people because of their skin color” — have found such a receptive audience. After all, many of the same grievances helped fuel Trump’s rise. 

From the earliest days of his 2016 presidential campaign, Trump’s support has been most heavily concentrated among white Americans who think they face significant racial discrimination. In fact, perceived anti-white discrimination powerfully predicted voter preferences in the 2016 general election. One survey conducted shortly after the election found Trump voters were over four times more likely than Clinton voters to say white Americans face “a lot” of discrimination (45 percent versus 10 percent, respectively); other polls also consistently showed that Republicans and Trump’s 2016 supporters saw racial discrimination against white people as a bigger problem than unfair treatment of racial and ethnic minorities in American society. Those views have only grown more pronounced in Republican politics. 

How The Rise Of White Identity Politics Explains The Fight Over Critical Race Theory

Most have NO idea what CRT is or why it is important other than the lies and misinformation spread by self-serving d/bags in the GOP.

History needs to be taught whether you like the story or not….to deny our history is to deny who we are as Americans.

GOP Unemployment Lie

Since the pandemic and people working from home or unemployed have been subsidized by the stimulus packages from the government.

Another of the GOP ‘Big Lies” is that unemployment benefits is keeping people from returning to work because they are making cash without working.

Yeah, what crap! At $300 a week I will be buying my much cherished Ferrari any day now.

So with an election looming, 2022, the GOP has decided that instead of finding solution they will just keep repeating the same damn lie….over and over…..

Republicans promoted the conspiracy theory that Americans weren’t going back to work amid the COVID-19 pandemic because they were too busy living the comfortable life on the U.S. dime. Data now shows that they were wrong.

The New York Times reported Sunday that in Missouri when federal pay for the unemployed was scrapped, workers still were being choosy. Gov. Mike Parson (R) proudly proclaimed that his state would be among the first to kill unemployment benefits. It still hasn’t worked, however.

“Work-force development officials said they had seen virtually no uptick in applicants since the governor’s announcement, which ended a $300 weekly supplement to other benefits,” said the report. “And the online job site Indeed found that in states that have abandoned the federal benefits, clicks on job postings were below the national average.”

It’s early on in the post-pandemic era, but thus far, the GOP claims appear to be false.

https://www.rawstory.com/republican-unemployment-lie/

Axios has taken a good look at the people that are staying home…..https://www.axios.com/high-unemployment-insurance-people-reject-jobs-9e426791-65b6-453b-9803-81aa3d0ca7e7.html

For those with economic tastes here is a deeper dive into the situation from the Morning Consult…..

  • The termination of federal unemployment insurance benefits is likely to produce an estimated 1.84 million jobs through the end of the year, particularly as more UI recipients begin actively looking for work.

  • The U.S. economy will remain roughly 4.7 million jobs short of where it was prior to the pandemic even after workers on unemployment insurance return to working.

  • Most unemployment insurance recipients know that their benefits have started to expire and feel the pressure to find jobs, likely leading them to reduce spending and save a greater share of their benefits as they transition to a more permanent source of income.

Expiring Unemployment Insurance Could Add Up to Nearly 2 Million Jobs This Year

As usual the GOP finds some non-existent problem to demonize for an election….sad part is the American voter is so damn ignorant they will believe the lie and vote accordingly.

The GOP never has a solution of perceived problems….all they ever have is lies, misinformation and finger pointing as well as demonization.

GOP–The Party Of Stupid

Today’s GOP is a far cry from the noble party of 1956……and since 1980 it has been in steady radicalization….today it has NOTHING to offer the country other than ‘chaos and instability’……

The GOP are not a political party as we have known such for most of our history. They are closer to a camp of oligarchic terrorists, employing techniques used by Fascists and other authoritarian regimes, and excoriated in 1984, to attempt a slow-moving coup, , whose aim is the destruction of voting rights, constitutional democracy, and the creation of a one-party state.

Political strategist David Plouffe said on MSNBC last week, “They`re not hiding what they`re doing. …they`re not only trying to make it harder to register to vote, they want to change …who gets to decide who wins elections….” “[T]his is existential. If you think that this Republican won`t go to the …furthest extremes to hold on to power, to steal power, to deny voters their franchise, I don`t know what you`re watching.”

https://goodmenproject.com/ethics-values/the-gop-are-not-just-trying-to-suppress-the-vote-they-are-trying-to-control-the-count-kpkn/

Back to the ‘chaos and instability’ thing…..

Newly leaked video footage of a recent event hosted by the right-wing group Patriot Voices shows Republican Rep. Chip Roy of Texas openly admitting that his party wants “18 more months of chaos and the inability to get stuff done” as President Joe Biden, a bipartisan group of senators, and congressional Democrats work to pass climate and infrastructure legislation.

“Honestly, right now, for the next 18 months, our job is to do everything we can to slow all of that down to get to December of 2022,” Roy says in the clip, referring to the month after that year’s midterm elections. Republicans need to flip just a handful of seats to take back the House and Senate.

“I don’t vote for anything in the House of Representatives right now,” Roy says in response to an audience member’s question about the sweeping infrastructure and safety-net package that Democrats are planning to pass unilaterally alongside a White House-backed bipartisan deal.

https://www.commondreams.org/news/2021/07/07/leaked-video-gop-congressman-admits-his-party-wants-chaos-and-inability-get-stuff

Is the American voter this naive?   Or maybe a better word is….STUPID….that they allow this obstructionism to continue?

Just on the word of a notorious liar…..that goes beyond ignorant into the realm of extreme stupidity.

Not to worry….the Dems are just as worthless as the GOP.

Dems have great ideas they just do not know how to translate that into action…..in other words they are great at defense but have no offensive strategy.

There are a few that try to bring about these ideas but the so-called ‘centrist’ always win and the ideas become lackluster at best.

So another American party of stupid.

From The ‘Can’t Fix Stupid’ Files

Closing thought–13Jul21

Some politician and people truly prove the saying that you ‘can’t fix stupid’…..and most times the stupider of the bunch are GOPers….like the moronic Sen. Bill Cassidy (R-LA)……

His moron brain shot off his mouth about ‘roads and bridges’ (you know parts of the infrastructure…..

Sen. Bill Cassidy (R-LA) on Sunday insisted that infrastructure like roads and bridges is a “women’s problem” because they do the “shopping.”

Cassidy made the remarks on NBC’s Meet the Press, where he was arguing on behalf of a bipartisan infrastructure bill.

“If you go home and talk to constituents who are stuck in traffic for an hour and a half getting to work and an hour and a half getting home — three hours a day that they don’t spend with their family — they want a bridge coming to a town near them,” Cassidy explained.

“My wife says that roads and bridges are a woman’s problem if you will,” the senator added. “Because oftentimes it is the woman — aside from commuting to work — who’s also taking children to schools or doing the shopping. And the more time that she spends on that road, the less time she spends doing things of higher value.”

The Brain Dead Party

Of course I am talking about the GOP.

And the Supreme Court has made it official……

In a stunning decision last week, the Supreme Court ripped the mask off the Republican Party. According to the nation’s highest court, the party no longer has anything to offer the American people.

Of course, the Supreme Court didn’t say that directly, but that’s the indisputable meaning of their ruling to uphold the Affordable Care Act. Seven justices — including two appointed by Donald Trump — rejected, for the third time, a Republican Party attempt to overturn the public health plan passed by Congress in October 2009.

Read between the lines of their decision. In effect, the Supreme Court told Republicans: Look, get serious. ObamaCare’s been around for almost 12 years now. You promised to “repeal and replace” it with something better, yet never came up with a plan of your own. You voted to repeal it 54 times in the House, but never got enough votes in the Senate. This is the third time you begged the Supreme Court to kill it for you, but couldn’t even convince your fellow conservatives to do so. In the meantime, the Affordable Care Act’s more popular than ever — and 31 million Americans have now signed up for health care coverage. You lost this battle. It’s time to move on.

https://thehill.com/opinion/campaign/559511-press-supreme-court-unmasks-brain-dead-party

The GOP is becoming as irrelevant as possible thanks to their devotion to the likes of Trump….the party is losing the urban and the suburban voters…..

The Republican Party is in a bind after the Donald Trump era destroyed the GOP in urban and suburban areas, according to a report by The New York Times.

The newspaper interviewed former San Diego Mayor Jerry Sanders, who left the Republican Party one day after the January 6th insurrection by Trump supporters seeking to overturn the election.

“I don’t think the right has kept up with the times,” Sanders told the newspaper.

“Across the political map this year, Mr. Sanders’s diagnosis of his former party appears indisputable: In off-year elections from Mr. Sanders’s California to New York City and New Jersey and the increasingly blue state of Virginia with its crucial suburbs of Washington, D.C., the Republican Party’s feeble appeal to the country’s big cities and dense suburbs is on vivid display,” the newspaper explained. “But the party’s growing irrelevance in urban and suburban areas also comes at a considerable cost, denying conservatives influence over the policies that govern much of the population and sidelining them in some of the country’s centers of innovation and economic might. The trend has helped turn formerly red states, like Georgia and Arizona, into purple battlegrounds as their largest cities and suburbs have grown larger and more ethnically mixed.”

https://www.rawstory.com/republicans-cities-suburbs/

Since polls have proven to be anything but accurate we will see just how good this on is in 2022.

I believe we will be surprised.

Keep in mind that 57% of Repubs think the election as stolen through voter fraud…..and that would include the urban and suburban voter.

It says nothing good about our country that 1 in every 3 people apparently believe Joe Biden only defeated Donald Trump in the 2020 election through outright fraud. It is similarly unfortunate that the more than 30% of the country who do believe that has largely stayed unmoved by “facts” and “reality” for the past few months, according to a just-released poll from Monmouth University.

“The continuing efforts to question the validity of last year’s election is deepening the partisan divide in ways that could have long-term consequences for our democracy, even if most Americans don’t quite see it that way yet,” Monmouth University Polling Institute Director Patrick Murray explained in a statement accompanying the poll, published Monday morning. Indeed, a full 57% of Republican respondents affirmed that they believed Biden “only won [the 2020 election] due to voter fraud.”

The GOP political consultants see the light…..

According to a report from the Washington Post, close aides to Donald Trump, as well as high ranking Republican Party insiders are doing all they can to discourage the former president from hastily making endorsements of Republicans with an eye on the 2022 midterms believing they could come back to haunt the party looking to regain power in Congress.

https://www.rawstory.com/trump-2022-2653559909/

Is anyone listening?

The GOP has been brain dead since 2010…they offer this country nothing but obstruction and division…..and the voter licks it up…..

So just who is brain dead?

This is interesting info….but will it make a difference in 2022?

As it appears today….I think not.
