I found this Young Republicans ad floating around the internet. This ad was circulated for Labor Day in 1956 and clearly supports and encourages labor unions.
Talk about a different Republican Party these days….
Just like the first night of the convention, some incredible people with wonderful, uplifting and inspirational speeches. The speakers came to an end with Former President Bill Clinton giving the last speech – and what a speech it was! He firmly committed his support for President Barack Obama. Additionally, he went through all the Republican Obama-lies one-by-one, dissecting and tearing each lie apart.
HBO has a new series called “The Newsroom” which is fictional but based upon current events in the news and politics. This show is better than watching the main stream media news coverages as the reporting is right on the nose. No holds barred with “The Newsroom.” What the anchor says is very real and very truthful.
So why doesn’t our main stream media cover the news like they’re doing in this episode below? Because they’re chicken. The main stream media is afraid of what will happen if they do go this far and tell it like it really is. In cases like FOX News, they do not care about the truth – their main purpose is to brainwash Americans and feed them lies in order to keep the sheeple in their stable.
At Tuesday’s Republican National Convention, the Republican Party once again played foul against their own party members and it nearly turned into a fight. The disruption was over the rules process that dictates how delegates are apportioned in each state. Ron Paul may not have done very well in the primaries at the ballot boxes, but his supporters have been working diligently behind the scenes to gather delegates. This apparently pissed of Boehner and he, along with the other dictators, immediately rewrote the rules right in front of everyone’s eyes. Now, when there is a statewide popular vote (primaries), if the result is not winner-take-all, each candidate must get delegates in proportion to their percentage of the popular vote. Therefore with Paul not winning with any popular votes, he is unable to seat his delegates.
My oh my…. The Republican Party is definitely not the same anymore. In fact, it is looking more like a dictatorship than a democracy. Point in case, seventeen Ron Paul delegates were disqualified because they would not sign an affidavit that “under the pain and penalty of perjury” they will vote for Mitt Romney at the Republican National Convention.
This type of affidavit has never been present in the past, and an affidavit that is signed for doing something in the future is not legal. The courts will never support it. Here is the full wording:
The Raging Grannies are awesome! Here is where Paul Ryan and Mitt Romney are going wrong. Ryan, with his budget plan that eventually will wipe out social security and medicare, assumes that the elderly now do not care since it won’t affect most of those over. You are so so so wrong, Ryan.
Then, without prior waring, Representative Todd Akin (R-MO) spewed out the most absolutely ridiculous statement statement I’ve ever heard, about women’s bodies will shut down to avoid becoming pregnant will be raped. Oops, pardon me… “legitimate” rape. (Is there such a thing as “illegitimate” rape?”
New 30 second ad put out… You know, sometimes the truth hurts – and this ad is metaphorically the absolute truth. Romney wants to pick YOUR pockets via increasing YOUR taxes while giving the 1% even MORE tax breaks.
And ladies, be careful. One woman in this video is pretty sure that the Mitt picked her pocket for her birth control. Romney has declared that he will “get rid” of Planned Parenthood. There goes birth control, breast exams and many other women’s health-related exams. I have always, and will always, support Planned Parenthood. They were there for me when I became sexually active at the young age of 16 – thirty years ago.
Since the Supreme Court upheld the Affordable Health Care Act (aka “ObamaCare”),
Republicant’s Republicans and Tea- Baggers Partiers alike have all been scrambling to come up with logical-sounding lies reasons as to why this new act is the most horrid thing to happen to our country. Since several of the SCOTUS judges are pretty much informally known to have been bought by certain people and companies (cough cough Koch Brothers cough cough), I am pretty sure that the GOP was confident that the Supreme Court would render an unconstitutional verdict, thus repealing one of the biggest, and most welcome, changes in health care that we have had in decades. Is the AHCA perfect? I am positive it is not. But it is a start. What we have been doing is not working, so it’s time to change. And the AHCA is modeled after one of the most successful health care systems in the world – in Switzerland.
Oh, to have been a fly on the wall of several peoples rooms and offices when this announcement came out.
“Under President Obama, Gas Prices Have Soared….”
“The Keystone XL Energy Pipeline is a proposed crude oil pipeline that is 36 inches in diameter and 1,700 miles long that would extend from Alberta, Canada to the Gulf Coast of the United States. The construction of the pipeline would create more than 20,000 direct jobs and 118,000 indirect jobs while battling the high cost of gas….”
These are only a few of the lies being told by Speaker of the House John Boehner, as well as Mitt Romney and the Republican Party as a whole. I am sure there are plenty of Democrats, too, but I it appears as though the GOP has an specific agenda in mind…. All you have to do is remember what Mitch McConnell said about making sure Obama is a one-term president. Our Congress has the power within their grasp to turn our economy around and create more jobs. But will they? No they will not. We are all martyrs to them simply and purely because they will not purposely do ANYTHING which will make President Obama look good.
I would like to share some photos – which are further down this page below the video – that I took in Santa Fe, New Mexico, for the national march protesting the Republican Party’s “War on Women.” Not surprisingly, the GOP is now denying that they are waging any war on the women in our country. How can they not see what is as plain on the nose on our faces? Because extreme right wing conservatives believe firmly in a hierarchical system. Men are at the top. Excuse me… white men. Followed by white women… about 5 steps behind, pregnant and getting ready to cook their dinner. Any one else is of little to no importance to them – unless they serve a purpose as Allen West does in Florida.
Hot from the presses, just published on April 24th, is the book from the author of the New York Times bestseller Dead Certain - the definitive book about the Bush Presidency – is a new book which provides a revealing and riveting look at unmoral goals set forth by the Republican Party starting at the very moment of President Obama’s inauguration called Do Not Ask What Good We Do: Inside the U.S. House of Representatives.
Somehow, this does not surprise me.
I honestly cannot find any other way or words to tell the story of how the upcoming March on April 28th came to be. So here is the short article from Addicting Info. A very important read to understand where so many women are coming from who are in support of the War on Women movement.
Sounds like political satire, right? Not in this case. I know many people are anti-Facebook for several reasons. But I have found Facebook to be beneficial, especially with keeping up in the news. I am careful as to who I friend and not afraid to “unfriend” someone if their main purpose is to be an asshole. But I love it as a one-stop source for my news. I “Like” many legitimate pages, and last night, this first image below, created by Tracy Knauss, came across Keith Olbermann’s page.
Great video. When hearing the women quote, word for word, some statements made by some very prominent people, they become even more powerful in exposing the harsh reality of the war the Republican Party has started with women. The GOP has got a serious problem with women. Until they get over their issues, women have got a serious problem with the GOP.
That’s right. You read the title correctly. Senate Bill 507, introduced by Senator Grothman (R-West Bend) on February 23, 2012, would require the Child Abuse and Neglect Prevention Board to emphasize that non-marital parenthood is a contributing factor to child abuse and neglect. Single parents make up a third of all Wisconsin parents. Once again, I am livid! What the hell is going on in our country? We seem to be going backwards in time as people’s rights start disappearing.
Just the other day, Michele Bachmann was interviewed by CNN’s Candy Crowley. Candy made the fatal mistake of assuming Michele Bachmann could think independently of male Republican propaganda.
“Where are the women,” said Crowley to Bachmann regarding the male-dominated debate on contraception in a TPM post.
I find this very, very frightening. The power the Koch Brothers have – and so many people do not even know who they are. These are the two that are “men behind the curtain” which are running our Republican Party, and helped fund and motivate the Tea Party. They will stop at nothing when their billions are threatened. Nothing.
According to Huffington Post, at a private three-day retreat in California last weekend, conservative billionaires Charles and David Koch and about 250 to 300 other individuals pledged approximately $100 million to defeat President Obama in the 2012 elections.
Now that Michele Bachmann has admitted defeat in her run for the Republican Party Presidential Candidacy, she is now up for hire. Doing what? Well… glad you asked. But first, let us bow our heads in a moment of silence while listening to a farewell song especially for Michele…
Bachmann is now up for hire as a consultant. There are three packages available, the Standard Bachmann b.s. Package, the Deluxe Bachmann b.s. package, and the Coup de Grâce Bachmann b.s. Package!
Do you need to learn how to sling mud and proper finger-pointing etiquette? Michele is your woman. Are you guilty of bad business practices? Under Michele’s tutelage, you will learn how to quickly turn the tables of the errors of your ways and point your finger at a completely innocent party, thus absolving yourself from all blame. These two critical items are taught in all three packages. More…
In an interview with CNN’s Piers Morgan, actor Morgan Freeman stated, ““The tea partiers who are controlling the Republican party…their stated policy, publicly stated, is to do whatever it takes to see to it that Obama only serves one term. What underlines that? Screw the country, we’re going to do whatever we can to get this black man out of here.”
That statement brought out the haters everywhere. And some of the most horrid, ignorant statements I have ever seen in such abundance.
I’m sure this will bring on some strong opinions, but honestly… Morgan Freeman has had the balls to say the plain and simple truth. And the truth hurts.
