Yeah, Reagan’s one of them. And no, I don’t think junior belongs on the list. I think we’re just waiting on history to declare him one of, if not the, worst and most criminal in the long, sordid history of America. Bush isn’t “overrated”. He was (and remains) evil and stupid.

I probably don’t need to remind you of this, but I’m disgusted by anyone who was a gun-grabber the day before Sandy Hook standing on the bodies of murdered children to further their political agenda, just as I was disgusted by those who stood on the bodies of those killed on 911 (with a bullhorn in his hand) to further his political agenda. So, maybe I’m hyper-sensitive but I was a little bothered by Obama’s mention of “they deserve a vote” at the end of the speech. No, you don’t “deserve a vote” on overturning the constitution by a simple majority.
I’ll add that other than that, I think he sorta knocked it outta the fuckin’ park.
We’ll see what Boehner, who I’m about to defend, can do about it, seeing as how he’s dealing with a completely worthless teabagger caucus that places IDEOLOGY above country, and won’t compromise on anything, can get done.
So, here’s the real “meat” of what I observed; there’s a cold running through DC, right now. I’m just getting over it, as is my wife and one of my closest collaborators. As I watched the speech I was focused on Boehner, because his body language in response to the speech is meaningful in interpreting what can actually be accomplished in the next two years, and I think he has the same miserable cold I just suffered through. I saw him wipe his nose, and I saw him cough.
Now, I’m wondering. Is it possible to peal Boehner away from the vile, disgusting, repugnant, uncompromising, IDEOLOGICAL, rigid, unthinking, anti-Democracy, intransigent, (insert vile but valid stereotype here) teabaggers by giving him credit for actually caring what happens to OUR (his, mine, and yours) country?
Who would have been celebrating the inauguration of Willard “Mitt” Romney, today, is an unmitigated, intractable dick.
Rep. Alan Grayson (D-FL) on Monday mocked the 67 House Republicans who voted against disaster relief funds for the victims of Hurricane Sanday.
“It’s the same 67 over and over again,” he noted on The Stephanie Miller Show. “It’s the bath salts caucus, the people that would rather eat your face than raise taxes on the rich.”
Minnesota Democratic Senator Paul Wellstone was killed iin a plane crash ten years ago today while campaigning for re-election to a third term in the U.S. Senate. His wife Sheila, daughter Marcia and five others also died in the crash. Former Rep. Jim Ramstad reflects on Wellstone’s legacy in this open letter.
I can’t afford to “get off the wheel”. I have a boss, my employer has expectations, I’m no different than the vast majority of Americans.
I’m a believer that small town America is dying. Uni warning, this is a Kos link.
“Unhinged Uni” warning, this is a Kos link. Because any blog that reports positively, or even allows posting about, the 99% must be inherently evil…
Yeah. This post is aimed directly at anyone who’s naive enough to agree that “there’s no difference” between Democrats and
Republicans the hate filled, 100% owned by the richest 1%, don’t give a fuck about YOU, out to destroy America GOP politicians.
Um; There’s not a single Republican in the Congressional Progressive Caucus. It’s all Democrats.
Think about it.
If you read my post introducing the concept of “Overton’s Window” on the old titty board this post needs no explanation, but if you didn’t, read here.
So, here’s what we should be pushing for; seizure, by the Federal government, of all privately held assets in excess of 1 million dollars, to be used for;
1) Hiring EVERY returning military veteran, regardless of party identity, to fix our failing infrastructure,
2) Redistribution of what’s left to anyone earning less than $50,000/yr (individually) and regardless of party identity to stimulate the economy,
3) If there’s anything left after that, funding any person, regardless of party identity, to run for public office. Fuck the corrupt SCOTUS.
There is no “left wing” left in the USA. Let’s start one.
