Politicizing politics

Irony at it's pinnacle -Republican support is mostly in the south - Republicans chastise the poor who pay no income taxes - the vast majority who pay no income taxes live in the south. I guess you'd have to conclude that most Republicans are self-loathing people.

The tea party - the right-wing - the Republican party - all opposed to thinking men.
Even many of the 1% know the truth about trickle-down economics - it does not work.

Electing Romney will be just like doubling-down on G.W. Bush.

The support for the Republicans is all the more surprising when you realize how many Americans actually support positions contrary to the GOP platform.

Romney and Ryan  are dangerous for our nation - and if they get elected the voters will soon find that out.

So many among the Christian Right have no real sense of what their religion is all about - they just see their religion as a worship of themselves and then they cast their own beliefs onto a fictitious Christ.

Just goes to show - Republicans hate Obama, for any number of reasons, more than they support the Republicans.

I don't believe that any presidential candidate has lied so much, or as often, as Mitt Romney - but there are so many who hate Obama that they will trust that they still know what Romney stands for.

Romney has scrubbed his life clean so that he could run for President. It is amazing that so many people are still attracted to this non-person.

Politics time again.

Maybe Obama did more for you and yours than you thought?

Those who hate based on race, ethnicity, gender and sexual orientation are mostly taught those feelings.

If elected, Paul Ryan would becomne the vice-hypocrite in-chief.

 Here's an apt description of the Republicans in this year's election cycle.

Republicans are trying to loosen up on their approach to women's issues.

 I've covered this topic before - the loss of income and fair distribution of the tax burden because of tax breaks given to religious organizations.

It sure SOUNDS like Romney et. al. want a piece of the welfare pie, doesn't it?

Can't disagree - Obama's not my favorite, but he's the best we've got.

The cost of a Republican restructuring of Medicare. You can view this graphic larger by clicking on it.

Here's a grand description of a major party candidate to lead this country. If this is really where we are headed, it won't be long before we are as backward and regressive as the Muslim nations of the Middle East.

They pay low wages and the rest of us pay for welfare benefits to supplement those wages. Make businesses pay a living wage.

Mitt Romney and fees

If history is any indicator, the Obama campaign may have figured out how Romney is going to afford his 20% across-the-board tax cut.

Political images preach to the choir

Mitt and Ann Romney live a privileged lifestyle.

And the non-rich GOP voters are liable to learn this lesson the hard way.

 Bill Maher and his writers are able to neatly describe the GOP every week in a new fashion.

GOP + Greed

Republicans like to criticize  government programs as being ineffective - but have you looked at the blunders in the private sector? There are some beauts.

Republicans - putting business before people and not understanding it when a large number of people object.

Chick-fil-A has a strange sense of mission in growing their business.

Stimulus is only bad if it's you providing it.

 Where does a lot of the public debt come from? The very part of government that the Republicans want to expand. They seem to have a sense of values that eludes me.

One measure of Obama's success is the number of losers who complain about the job he is doing.
 We could get government to spend a lot less each year if we made businesses pay a living wage to all employees. As it is now, we have to subsidize a lot of low wage workers with food stamps, HEAP, and other forms of welfare. Where are the Republicans on this issue when they talk about keeping government out of private sector business?

And now on to the stupidity of organized religion...

Ten new images that contribute to the conversation on the worthiness of following an organized religion.

More political stuff

It has, for most of recorded history, been a world of the haves versus the have-nots.

Obamacare is better than no-care.

The battle for the rights of minorities to vote is still underway. Don't tell me about this being a nation of freedoms.

I think that the Governmental watchdogs are afraid of the Supreme Court because they no longer support the constitution - they support the corporation.

Bill Hamer explains the tax situation simply for the conservatives who STILL won't understand it.

Rickk Perry - cherry-picker-in-chief of the nation's religious conservatives.

If you wonder why our deficit is so huge, Jon Stewart will identify the causes for you.

Mitt Romney has gotten away without ever releasing his tax returns - one has to assume there's some pretty nasty things hidden in those documents.

There's some strange stuff going on in America, and most of the strangeness is in the hands of the religious and the conservatives.

Mitt Romney, for many of us, just lacks some spark.

Fox News is really just a joke of a news network, put together by simple-minded people for other simple-minded people.

It is amazing, given the recent history of Republican speeches about government and health care, that so many conservatives really, REALLY want to control what you do with your body.
