THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA IN CRISIS; SPECIAL INTEREST GROUPS HAVE SEIZED ENOUGH POWER TO DESTROY THE US GOVERNMENT AND THEY INTEND TO DO IT!

Monday, September 30th, 2013

Our nation is currently in a crisis; our own American government is being threatened by extremist Republican members of the House of Representatives; these Republicans are referred to as the “Tea Party Republicans”.  The House Republicans have stated they are prepared to destroy the government if their demands are not met; this is not the same political party as the party of Lincoln and Teddy Roosevelt.

The “Tea Party” is financed by the John Birch Society, Koch brothers, and it is an obvious front group for the John Birch Society.  http://www.usnews.com/opinion/blogs/Peter-Fenn/2011/02/02/tea-party-funding-koch-brothers-emerge-from-anonymity

The primary tenet of the John Birch Society is that America is not a democracy, it is a republic.

The Webster dictionary definition of a “republic”is:  “A government in which the supreme power is held by the citizens entitled to vote and is exercised by elected officers and representatives governing according to law.”

The reason that the USA is a “democratic” republic is that our Constitution states that ALL citizens can vote, majority rules, and liberty exists (our Bill of Rights) and the Bill of Rights protects the minority from the tyranny of the majority.

The reason that the John Birch Society doesn’t want to believe America is a democracy is because they believe that only the “elite” (plutocrats) should have the right to vote because the majority is made up of common working middle class People which the John Birch Society calls, “a mob” and refers to a democratic majority as “mob rule”; they would have the nation governed by elite plutocrats (an oligarchy).

Democracy exists to a degree.  A pure democracy would have all the people voting on every issue which was not possible in 1787 when the Constitution was written.  Our Founding Fathers made America as democratic and they could at the time with the technology they had. 

With today’s electronic technology, it would be possible to have a national referendum and America should consider it, a Twenty First Century Innovation.

Meanwhile, America faces a threat by this ideological extremist group of Republicans who took advantage of the Supreme Court’s “citizens United” decision and “bought” their way into a House majority that is a serious threat to America’s democratic government.

GREAT NEWS! A SOLUTION TO AMERICA’S SEQUESTRATION PROBLEM!

Friday, February 1st, 2013

It seems that the Republican majority in the House and the Republican filibuster minority in the Senate have decided that America is an exceedingly poor nation that is too big of a risk to raise the debt limit that the Republicans have established and America is therefore incapable of paying the Nation’s bills, and so, America will go into sequestration in the month of March.  Sequestration is a 2-bit word for bankrupt, and America not being able to pay America’s bills.

Oh, you ask, why don’t the Republicans raise the debt limit; well, it seems that the Republicans are really pissed off at the voters for reelecting President Obama instead of Bain Capital’s what-his-name and sequestration is their way of getting even with the voters.  Never mind, it’s not important because, fear not Americans, we have a solution!

Sequester, oh yes, what a great opportunity for the Obama Administration who spends what money America does have; the first thing you do is get the hell out of Afghanistan and save a pot full of money.  To get out of Afghanistan thoughtfully, easily, and cheap, just deed the whole country of Afghanistan to Russia.

So, the President can cancel all contracts with corporations contracting with the Defense Department; America is out of the Afghan war, can’t afford to pay its soldiers salaries, and therefore those Defense contracts have no purpose.

Next, stop all funding of all Federal projects in Republican Speaker Boehner’s Congressional District and stop all funding of all Federal projects in Republican Sen. Mitch McConnell’s State of Kentucky.

Cancel all subsidies to oil companies and put a moratorium on driving all Federal owned vehicles, thus closing the Post Office since they can’t move the mail without trucks; that will eliminate Congress’ franking privilege; and, Republican Congressmen won’t be able to send voters any mail free of charge, telling all us how bad the President is that we voters elected.

Finally, the President should sell all the Ocean front property on Camp Pendleton Marine Corps Base and pay off the National Debt.  The Marines won’t need the luxurious ocean front since the Republicans have convinced us that the USA is too damn poor to pay the Marines salaries anyway.

To cap it all off, have NASA prepare an appropriate rocket and give Republican’s Speaker Boehner and Sen. McConnell a free one way trip, first class of course, to the moon.  Problem solved!

THE US SUPREME COURT, “WITHER THOU GOEST IN 2012, I WILL FOLLOW WITH IMPEACHMENT CHARGES AND REVOLUTION”: A US CITIZEN!

Tuesday, October 2nd, 2012

Two stories on the US Supreme Court was in the news today, “Supreme Court Term Begins, Major Rulings Ahead” and “Supreme Court Justices Attend Annual Red Mass”, Huffington Post, 9/30/12.  In the first story, the Supreme Court is expected to rule on Racial Preferences, Accountability for Human Rights Abuses, Drug Sniffing Dogs, Fighting Terrorism, Gay Marriage, and Voting Rights Act; in the second story, there were a record number of Supreme Court Justices attending the Catholic Red Mass in Washington for the Judiciary, this year.

The question remains, how far is the 5 John Birch Society Republican Justices of the US Supreme Court daring to go to eliminate democracy from America.  The American natives are absolutely getting restless.

After Bush vs. Gore, Citizens United, and Zelman v. Simmons-Harris, Americans who champion democracy are getting close to rebellion as Chief Justice Roberts is well aware; this is most probably his reasoning for assuring Obama care to be Constitutional.  America is ripe for either impeachment of the court or outright armed rebellion against the Supreme Court which has sought to eliminate American democracy, John Birch style.

By the way, take a good look at the dissent decision in Zelman v. Simmons-Harris case mentioned, which sneaked by the public with little notice; be sure to read the dissent.  The decision allows taxpayer’s money to be used to indoctrinate students in a specific religion; unheard of before this John Birch Society Republican Court took oath of office;by the way, 6 of 9 Supreme Court Justices are actually members of the Catholic Church (a big majority with tremendous power).  Note: a group of Catholic Bishops have recently attacked President Obama because of his Obamacare based on religious grounds; the Catholic Church would appear to no longer be a tax-exempt, non-profit religious corporation but instead a political force.  This does not imply, of course, that the congregation agrees with the Bishops, however!

Judge the Court by what they do and be sure to read the dissenting views.

The Record of the US Supreme Court since 2000 is atrocious!

 

PRESIDENT OBAMA DOES NOT RAISE TAXES, HE LOWERS THE BUDGET AND NATIONAL DEBT, AND ROMNEY AND REPUBLICANS ARE COMPLAINING ABOUT IT!

Thursday, June 7th, 2012

Romney and the Republicans continue whining that the temporary (since 2001) Bush Tax Cuts for the Wealthy, should be made permanent and not be allowed to expire at the end of the year because (1.) taxes should not be raised and (2.) the budget and national debt should be reduced!

President Obama has vowed that the Bush Tax Cut for the Wealthy will expire, it will not be extended, and it will not be made permanent.

Holy crap!

1. If the Bush Tax Cuts for the Wealthy do expire; taxes have not been raised, instead taxes for the wealthy cease to be lowered and return to the normal tax rates for the wealthy, and

2. The Bush Tax Cuts for the Wealthy are not affordable and they are a distinct part of the unbalanced Budget and the National Debt since 2001; therefore, if the Bush Tax Cuts for the Wealthy expire, President Obama and the Democrats have REDUCED THE BUDGET AND  THE NATIONAL DEBT.

Holy crap!

Taxes will not have not been raised and the Budget and the National debt has be lowered and now the Republicans are complaining about it!  Augggggggggh!

Holy crap, again!

 

AFGHANISTAN WAR: WHAT AMERICANS NEED TO KNOW AND WHAT THEY WILL NEVER FIND OUT

Thursday, May 3rd, 2012

Today’s comparison of President Obama’s speech from Afghanistan and President Bush’s “Mission Accomplished” is ridiculous; so is reciting miscellaneous poll results.  What is important is what no news commentator will report.  Invading Afghanistan was a tragedy.

President Bush had to invade Afghanistan in 2001 because Constitutional minded Americans did not accept him as President because of the political Supreme Court’s 5 Justices “creation” of W. Bush to be President; he was not elected and the world knows it.  All despots “manufacture” wars to rally subjects to support them; Bush was no exception and Afghanistan was his rallying war.

Nothing was accomplished by war in Afghanistan because President Obama did in Pakistan in 2011 what President Bush could have done in Afghanistan in 2001, apprehend bin Laden.  Getting bin Laden was President Bush’s “excuse” for invading Afghanistan; now it is plain it wasn’t ever necessary.  It’s also evident that President Bush and 5 Neocon Justices on the Surpreme Court were incompetent politicians.

President Obama inherited an 8 year disaster in 2008; he got bin Laden in 2011, he has to clean up after Bush’s disaster in 2012, and Americans have to suffer the consequences until 2024.  No one could possibly envy President Obama being President today?

Holy crap!  It’s time Americans considered the real facts.

Of course everyone should know that Bin Laden’s incentive for 9/11 was retaliation for  President Papa Bush, President George Herman Bush,  putting a US military base in Muslim Saudi Arabia Holy Land (US 911 Commission Report) during the Desert Storm War in 1991, another unnecessary war.  For example the vote in Congress authorizing the Desert Storm War was 250-183 in the House and 52-47 in the Senate; it was a war of aggression, America was not threatened.

Be sure to vote in November if you meet the Republican qualifications.

PAY OFF THE NATIONAL DEBT; REPUBICAN FERVOR!

Thursday, April 5th, 2012

Holy crap!  Only the members of the Republican Party are intelligent enough to know that the only way to eliminate the national debt is to cut the taxes for the wealthy!

WHY ARE POLITICIANS NOT VETTED FOR ANTI-DEMOCRACY, JOHN BIRCH SOCIETY IDEOLOGY

Wednesday, March 28th, 2012

Here is a question for America’s media news reporters; why are not all political candidate vetted by the News Media for John Birch Society, anti-democracy ideology?  Are investigating reporter afraid?  They do have reasons of course.

Why wasn’t President W. Bush vetted for anti-democracy, John Birch ideology; President Bush (Junior) never used the word democracy to describe America to my knowledge and he never used the word democracy in speeches or press conferences until there were no weapons of mass destruction found in Iraq; then in one State of the Union Speech he said that he wanted to make Iraq, a “democracy”.  He STUMBLED over the word, democracy.  President Junior Bush used the word “freedom” a lot but not the word, democracy.   What did President W. Bush believe; someone ask, please.

That is typical John Birch Society; the JBS believes that democracy is a fraud and mob rule (their words).

This is found in the John Birch Society Bluebook p.124 “And democracy, of course, as the Greeks and Romans both found out… is merely a deceptive phrase, a weapon of demagoguery, and a perennial fraud.”

(Continued in Footnote 25, p. 136.)   “Our liberal critics would have you believe that his statement, for an American is practically heresy.  This is because these same Liberals have been working so long and so hard to convert our republic into a democracy, and to make the American people believe that it is supposed to be a democracy.  Nothing could be further from the truth than that insidiously planted premise.  Our founding fathers knew a great deal about history and government, and they had very nearly a clean slate on which to write the blueprint for our own.  They gave us a republic because they considered it the best of all forms of government.  They visibly spurned a democracy as probably the worst of all forms of government.  But our past history and our present danger indicates that they were right in both particular.”

Of course, politically a democracy and a Republic are apples and oranges.  A Republic simply means, representative government; democracy means a government where all citizens vote, majority rules, and liberty exists; liberty is the key and it is liberty that protects the minorities from the tyranny of the majority. Democracy of course, exists to degree; there are no pure democracies.

Of course, it is possible to have a plutocratic oligarchy Republic which the JBS imply America was intended to be; that would be a Republic where only the wealthy and influential elite vote and make decisions.

The John Birch Society believes in absolute freedom; however, the American democratic Republic and the US Constitution provides Americans “liberty”, which in a democracy, is freedom to the extent that you do not infringe upon the rights of others.  American liberty (the Bill of Rights) is essential to protect American minorities from the tyranny of the majority.

Listen to today’s Republican Presidential candidates of 2012; they talk extensively about THEIR freedom but not about liberty or democracy or the freedom of people who disagree with them.  Often, today’s candidates actually speak of their freedom to deny others of their freedom.

Why has no reporter ever confronted a politician with the question, simply put, “Do you believe that America was intended to be a democracy and is America a democracy?”

And, “Do you believe that your American Bill of Rights restricts the freedom of Americans so to not deny the freedom of any other Americans.”

Politicians running for office in America should easily handle such questions, honestly or not!

Unfortunately, Americans go to the polls without knowing what these candidates really believe; truthfully, candidates have NEVER been asked.  A good example today is the political milieu in the State of Wisconsin and Gov. Walker’s attempt to eliminate democratic recall elections, destroy the public schools, and eliminate labor unions and collective bargaining.

Why doesn’t the press vet politicians about John Birch ideology?

2012 REPUBLICANS ARE MINDLESS DRONES WITH A PRURIENT INTEREST

Friday, March 16th, 2012

American people listen:

Marriage Law in the American democratic Republic IS NOT RELIGIOUS IN ANY SENSE; IT IS ABOUT A LEGAL CONTRACT.  THE US CONSTITUTION’S FIRST AMENDMENT SEPARATES THE CHURCH FROM THE STATE.

NO ONE HAS THEIR RIGHTS DENIED IF SOME OTHER CITIZEN MARRIES A CITIZEN OF THE SAME GENDER OR IF HE LOVES HIS HORSE AND MARRIES HIS HORSE.

No ones rights are abridged if SOME OTHER CITIZEN USES CONTRACEPTIVES OR HAS AN ABORTION; NO ONE IS REQUIRED TO USE CONTRACEPTIVES OR HAVE AN ABORTION

Republicans have made the 2012 Presidential election a vaginal circus; the entire world is laughing at the sexual stupidity of the American people.  Babies DO NOT come from the American government; babies come from their mother’s body.

Republicans have become mindless drones with a prurient interest.

The Catholic Princes of the Church believe that Jesus Christ believed that sex was dirty, bearing children was a sporting event, and Jesus never had the pleasure of an erection; the US Constitution gives Catholic Bishops the right to believe that but not to legislate it.

All of this makes one wonder if some terrorists has contaminated Republican drinking water with stupidity drugs!

REV. PAT ROBERTSON CALLS SANDRA FLUKE A FORNICATOR AND SAYS LIMBAUGH’S SLUT AND PROSTITUTE WENT OVER THE TOP???

Thursday, March 8th, 2012

“Televangelist Pat Robertson addressed Sandra Fluke’s “fornication” and said that “Rush Limbaugh got a little bit over the top” when he referred to Fluke as a “slut” and a “prostitute.”  Huffington Post 3/7/12

I contend Huff Post scraped-the-bottom when they chose to use so much ink about what Pat Robertson said.

What does Robertson actually know about Sandra Fluke’s “fornication” or anyone’s fornication; does Robertson believe he is omniscient?

Never have I heard a woman say she needed contraception to “fornicate”; however, women obviously need contraception for their own welfare, health and other purposes.

And face it, the income of women is below the level of income of men, that’s a fact, and men are the reason women need contraception, and men are the reason that women are least able to afford contraception. This is insanity.

Women contend they need access to contraception; Rush Limbaugh, Rev. Pat Roberson, and Catholic Bishops contend religious male employers should not have to include contraception in women’s health plans IF a male employer believes it’s a sin for women to have access to contraception.  Oh my God, help me to explain ‘men’ to my precious daughters.

Robertson’s contention is that the religious beliefs of men are more important than the Constitutional rights and the health of women.

Holy crap!

When it comes to intelligence and/or compassion, Robertson is lacking in both and he makes Christianity look bad.

Robertson even blames God for tornadoes; what kind of theologian is that? Robertson’s God is sure a mean sob.

AMERICAN CHRISTIAN EXTREMISTS UNDEMOCRATIC OPPOSITION TO GAY MARRIAGE

Thursday, February 9th, 2012

When it comes to marriage law and gay marriage, what Extremist Christians in America fail to understand is that liberty, in a democracy like the American democratic Republic and as defined in the Constitutional Bill of Rights, is for the purpose of defending the minority of Americans from the tyranny of the majority; that is what democracy is all about.  Without liberty, majority rules would be “mob rule”, as the John Birch Society maintains; when liberty is included in the definition of democracy, it proves that the John Birch Society is and extremist opponent of democracy without cause.

The First Amendment separates church and State.  The Fourteenth Amendment provides ALL citizens equality under the law.

If a cowboy wants to marry his horse in a civil marriage, who am I to complain; he is no threat to my civil rights or anyone else.

Christians should should show more love (compassion) for their neighbors and enemies and exhibit less hatred, in cases where a Christian’s civil rights are not threatened; “Render unto Caesar that which is Caesar’s and render unto God that which is God’s.”  “Love your neighbors.”
