There is some serious shit going wrong round here
August 30, 2011
What the hell is going on?
The Republicants seem to be on a tear and no one seems to be upset about it?
First off, House Majority Leader Eric Cantor said last week that Congress will help those hurt by
the earthquake but any potential emergency disaster aid/money be offset by spending cuts.
This coming after the east coast earthquake and just one day before Hurricane Irene hit the US.
And it seems only 1 person in Congress has a problem with that?
Read more here:
Since Eric Cantor doesn't want to give out funds to hurricane victims unless we cut more programs
from the federal budget, the other Republicants must be on board right?
Because if they asked for those funds, that would make them hipocrites...right?
Over the weekend, Michele Batshit Bachmann "joked" that the earthquake & hurricane are a sign from God
because he is upset with the US for not being fiscally responsible.
I think I sort of called this earlier.....anyway, read more:
While we are talking about God, say a prayer for our children:
Get a load of this: certain Republicant members of the House think it's time for a raise.
Operative X found this article and his response was "Are you fucking kidding me?"
Must be tough making $174,000 a year, especially since we the people pay their paycheck:
And to top it all off, The Republicants have annouced that when Congress is back in session next week,
the GOP/Tea Party is going after the EPA & Labor laws.
There has even been talk about lowering the Federal Minimum Wage or doing away with it all together.
How the FUCK is that going to help anyone but Big Business.
Oh wait, that's the goal, to destroy the middle class and create a servant class:
If none of the above bothers you, then just go back to sleep.
For everyone else, open your eyes.

Do you think anyone in the Tea Party know who Barry Goldwater is?

This season has not been my favorite.
With only 2 episodes left, I hope they do something grand to make up for this boring season.
Although, the ending of episode 10 "Burning Down the House" looked pretty cool.

Doctor Who is back in the brand new episode.....
Here is what I thought of the episode:
I don't think I could even begin to give you the rundown on this episode!
Hitler is just a red herring; the episode is really all about River Song.
But don't worry, Hitler gets a nice present from Rory.

Good Times with Family and Friends;
These are the days that life is all about.

This was a wonderfully nice day because it was spent with friends and family.
Hanging out, eating food, drinking, talking, catching up and playing with the kids.
The best way to spend any day.
66 years ago today, something terrible changed the world

We waited until the blast had passed, walked out of the shelter and then it was extremely solemn...

Hiroshima Atomic Bomb - August 6th, 1945
The first atom bomb to be used as a weapon, "Little Boy" (as was its codename) was dropped on to the flat terrain of Hiroshima on August 6, 1945. The bomb vapourised buildings and killed nearly 70,000 people directly but by the end of 1945, nearly 100,000 had died from its protracted effects.

We are in big trouble & things are gonna get worse
August 3, 2011
We're gonna rant again...
As has been reported ad nauseam, a deal was reached & signed to raise the Debt Ceiling.
The Crisis has been adverted right, except, there really wasn't a crisis.
Sure, America defaulting on our loans is bad.
But raising the debt ceiling to stop that from happening should not have been this big of a deal.
Republicans didn't have a problem when Reagan did it, all 18 times.
Nor did they have any issues with it when Bush Jr. did it 7 times.
(Those are facts, check it out here)
Obama has made a deal with the devil and the deal is pretty shitty.
Read this article on the Debt Ceiling bill itself:
In this day and age, it seems Obama can't do anything unless he does it exactly as
the Tea Party/GOP want it done.
The GOP has made it clear, they are waging war on the middle class in order
to ensure the richest people in America get richer.
Read Joe Nocera's Op Ed piece on the subject:
You know what I find sad about the whole thing?
This guy had so much potential.
He got our hopes up and we thought he was going to bring real change to Washington.
Instead, he has lost his spine & seems scared of the GOP.
He gives up on so many of his ideas and plans in the name of compromise.
He wants the Republicans to agree with him but he just doesn't realize they NEVER will.
In his efforts to appease the Republicans, he has done a wonderful job helping them
wage war on the economy & The Middle Class.
Read Paul Krugman's Article on the Subject:
Honestly folks, I don't see anything getting better anytime soon.
I don't know what to say or do.
All I know is, each one of us has to stand up for what's right.
And what's is happening in Washington is wrong.
I think this is one of Keith Olbermann best moments.

And in Local News....
Doug Lamborn is a fucking idiot.
In case you haven't heard, Doug Lamborn called President Obama a "Tar Baby".
I don't care what anyone says, that is a racist term when used in describing someone who is black!
To quote Salon.com:
" Tellingly, this openly derogatory epithet comes from not just any old politician.
Lamborn is a United States congressman from Colorado Springs [Colorado's 5th congressional district] -
- one of the most conservative Tea-Party-loving districts in America.
In the hard-core right-wing political circles he runs in, describing a black person as a "tar baby" is probably more than acceptable -- it may even be celebrated, especially when aimed at a political opponent like President Obama. "
While on the subject, here are some other thoughts I have on the GOP:
