Subject: I'm tired of Republicans.
Republicans rally against regulation of industry, and then America sees how that turns out when BP spills a million barrels of oil in our seas.
Republicans will rally against gay people, stripping them of civil rights, and then you find them tapping their toes in airport bathrooms looking for their gay lovers.
Republicans will rally against non-existent communists but have no problem driving an economy with Karl Marx like spending of tax dollars on endless wars against enemies that did not attack us.
Besides stoking anger at Democrats and Obama, just what is the Republican Party offering? Tax breaks? We've been down this road before. Dividing people with emotional exploitation, screaming for tax breaks and ending of industry regulation is all the Republican Party is about and is absolutely funded by the companies that benefit directly from the tax breaks and deregulation.
What does the United States of America deserve for voting for Republicans? An oily, poisoned Gulf of Mexico.
Republicans still believe in the trickle down effect too. When are we going to get this lie out of the way?
The 2005 CBO data show that changes in law enacted since January 2001 increased the deficit by $539 billion in 2005. In the absence of such legislation, the nation would have a surplus that year. In 2010, when all the Bush tax cuts were finally phased in, a staggering 52.5 percent of the benefits went to the richest 5 percent of taxpayers. President Bush and his supporters argued that these high-income tax cuts would benefit everybody because they would unleash investment that would spark widespread economic prosperity.
There is no evidence of this.
From 2000 to 2007, the United States lost one in five (3.5 million) middle-class jobs. A majority of the new jobs created in the United States under Bush pay extremely low wages at less than $18,000 a year, usually without benefits. This is with corporate profits at an all time high since 1960.
Americans are kept ignorant that Republicans have no credibility on the issue of jobs creation.
Many political leaders are community organizers and so are all good pastors and churches, the Boy Scouts, the Girl Scouts and so forth. Most things that are good for the people of the United States of America are the result of hard work done by people who care about people; Community Organizers.
Republicans and their propaganda machines create deceitful and ignorant people. Can you name me something that a Republican conservative ever did for anybody but the rich?
Republicans exploit the people who vote for them in order to give tax breaks to the richest among us, and do so by stoking anger at Liberals who, ironically enough, are usually the only types of leaders in government who have ever done good things for the majority of the people of the United States of America.
If you have Social Security, Medicare, the right to vote, the right to an education, a clean park or a lake near you. If you were given a disability check or a wheel chair ramp into the store you buy your food, if you like safe bridges, clean drinking water, clean air and a nontoxic environment, if you feel safe when you fly, or eat out, or give your child a toy, then it’s time you give Liberals the credit they deserve.
Just because Fox News, Rush, and Roger Ailes say the word Liberal in disdain a thousand times a day doesn’t mean anything, except it means that the rich people of our country are tired of Liberals granting protections to the people of the United States of America because it hurts their profits.
Thank you for your website,
The Republicans are better at spin than the Democrats. And I've always believed that the Internet would make people smarter. Boy, was I wrong!
Thanks for writing, Joe.

Joe Scarborough Being Civil: Ha Ha Ha Ha

The Kenyan Jewish Muslim
The story of the Obama administration's large-scale spending on faith-based groups has been largely untold, perhaps because it cuts so sharply across the moment's intensely partisan narrative. And in fact, when the stimulus was being debated in February 2009, conservatives attacked the bill as "anti-religious" in its spending guidelines.
No work, no donations. Sigh.
