Give The Republicans What They Want!!

What do the republicans want? They want to destabilize and destroy the one thing that helps small businesses  and the American people the most. They want to destroy the Postal incredible world renowned postal service the likes of which has never existed before. It was actually started in 1775 and has existed and grown to be the largest and most efficient postal system in the world.

The US postal service handles 40% of the world's cards and letters. It has 574,000 workers, has 215,625 vehicles which I believe is the largest non military fleet in the world, has 31,871 retail locations, had $67 Billion in income in 2010 and uses zero dollars of tax payers' money.

Many in the US do not know that the republicans put a really large weight around the neck of the Postal Service and is trying to drown it, by requiring them to prefund their retirement and pension benefits for the next 75 years...and do so in a 10 year period. A phenomenal and impossible feat that means that the Postal Service will have to find 5 1/2 Billion dollars each year to fund this.

Instead of helping to create jobs this could cause at least 120,000 jobs to be lost. 

So, what can we expect if the Postal Service is privatized? Well one example is this, people who have had their garbage collection privatized, has seen their collection fees doubled. Everyone who uses the postal service will see their fees rise. Right now medications are mailed, the majority of all and otherwise are mailed, bills and checks are mailed, even live animals and grandma's cookies are mailed.

Obviously there will be much business in the large cities for Fed ex and UPS to do, but some urban and rural areas will prove to be unprofitable for these delivery companies, which will result in two possible scenarios.

First, the rural post offices will have to be run by the Government using tax payers' dollars, or secondly the delivery companies will operate central offices in urban and rural areas where patrons will be required to travel many miles to these offices to collect their mail, this could be as many as or more than 50 miles...did I mention the service or postal fees will be considerably more than 44 cents? 

Oddly enough, the largest amount of inconvenience will be felt in known conservative areas where they will really feel the love from the caring Republican individuals they rushed to vote for. These are the same Republican officials who are trying to end collective bargaining, totally privatize their health care by repealing President Obama's health care plan, Medicare and Medicaid... and of course privatize their Social Security.

I wonder if after they get a taste of the bad medicine they are voting for, they will come to their senses...unfortunately we cannot let these programs and services be privatized just for the confused and uninformed republican voters to learn their lesson and taste their bitter, no...we cannot give them what they want!!

Rick Perry is the new Sarah Palin on Foreign Policy...

Yes, Rick Perry is being thought of as the new Sarah Palin on Foreign Policy. So...does he see Russia from Texas? We will soon find out. After reading Jennifer Rubin's article online in the Washington Post I come away with the feeling that she is on to something about Perry.

Apart from the fact that he obviously employs the old style of his Texan mentor and predecessor George W. Bush, being a shoot from the hip ask questions later...if at all, kinda guy, he definitely needs to " shed the image of a novice with a sparse understanding of the nuts and bolts of foreign policy." as Jennifer puts it. This statement in itself was the straw that connected him to Sarah Palin...for me.

I understand that in a Presidential election one has to try to separate oneself from the other candidates and in doing this you usually let the public get a good look at you from the inside out... from my view, there is nobody home at the Perry residence. We see the same bland generalizations we saw when Sarah ran on the ticket with McCain. 

Perry is obviously stumbling along trying to duck out of the way of the "Gotcha" questions and jabs posed by his rivals, most notably Bachmann and Romney. 

Jennifer writes..."His campaign advisors should resist the urge to portray him as a guru, and instead take the time to educate and develop their candidate’s knowledge. And until he personally could articulate his thoughts in detail, they should forgo the pretense of sophistication. It’s likely to cause more problems than it solves."  I like this journalist's thought process...she is tightly precise in her observations and her common sense understanding of the man...the 'Coyote kid' 

Gail Collins of the New York Times online writes... "So who is this man called Rick? He is, in his own words, “the kind of guy who goes jogging in the morning packing a Ruger .380 with laser sights and loaded with hollow point bullets, and shoots a coyote that is threatening his daughter’s dog.” "

Gail writes further..."O.K., there are a few problems. One is that a Texas Tribune poll this week showed that Perry was only the choice of 4 percent of Texas Republicans for the presidential nomination. (Sarah Palin came in first and Gingrich second, which suggests the Republicans in Texas may not be totally focused.)" ... even Texans prefer Palin to a President Perry...

Gail goes on..."Try to imagine the Republican convention being asked to choose between Mitt Romney, who once drove to Canada with the family dog strapped to the roof of his car, and the guy who shot a puppy-eating coyote. With a Ruger .380 with laser sights!"

"If Perry were elected president, perhaps he would do for the entire United States what he’s done for Texas, which ranks first in the nation in the percentage of the population without health insurance, and 45th in high school completion. We could return to grass-roots, state-driven environmental regulations, the kind that have made Texas the nation’s leader in clean-water permit violations, hazardous waste spills and toxic emissions from manufacturing facilities.

But the coyotes would really have to watch out." 
Jennifer Rubin and Gail Collins...I salute you.

President Obama...This Is Math, Not Class Warfare.

President Obama on Monday Sept. 19th unveiled his plan for economic growth and deficit reduction in a suave and welcome slapdown of the "Tea O P"
He left his strongest critics gasping for breath as he outlined some of his proposals to address a 4 Trillion dollar reduction of the deficit. He says...
"Either we gut education and medical research, or we’ve got to reform the tax code so that the most profitable corporations have to give up tax loopholes that other companies don’t get. We can’t afford to do both.  

This is not class warfare. It’s math. The money is going to have to come from someplace. And if we’re not willing to ask those who've done extraordinarily well to help America close the deficit and we are trying to reach that same target of $4 trillion, then the logic, the math says everybody else has to do a whole lot more: We’ve got to put the entire burden on the middle class and the poor. We’ve got to scale back on the investments that have always helped our economy grow. We’ve got to settle for second-rate roads and second-rate bridges and second-rate airports, and schools that are crumbling. 
That’s unacceptable to me. That’s unacceptable to the American people. And it will not happen on my watch. I will not support -- I will not support -- any plan that puts all the burden for closing our deficit on ordinary Americans. And I will veto any bill that changes benefits for those who rely on Medicare but does not raise serious revenues by asking the wealthiest Americans or biggest corporations to pay their fair share. We are not going to have a one-sided deal that hurts the folks who are most vulnerable. "

The President has now drawn a line in the that his supporters are only too happy to see. The past years has eroded some of the President's popularity with the Republicans intent to sabotage the country's economic recovery at every turn and at any cost. We have seen the real class warfare being fought  over the years by the Rich, while their word spinners disguised it as "Tax Cuts for Job makers."  The President quite rightly predicted in his speech that the Republicans will mindlessly fall back on their old worn out rhetoric of chanting "Class Warfare". How predictable the foolish are... as the President said of Speaker Boehner when given an ultimatum of 'my way or the highway' ...that is not smart...and that's not right.

This is an overview of the fact sheet.

Ex-Bush Insider Colonel Wilkerson Willing To Testify Against Bush And Cheney!!

It is the bombshell of such fantastic proportions that my ears are ringing...a feat that only the largest amounts of Vodka can achieve!! Ex-Bush Official Colonel Lawrence Wilkerson has said clearly in an interview with Russian Media that he is willing to testify in a court against former bosses George W Bush and Dick Cheney.

Apparently the release of Dick Cheney's book of lies and half truths is the last straw that broke the Camel's back, causing Colonel Wilkerson to take this unexpected and unprecedented stand against this pair of criminals, the likes of which has never soiled this country's Highest office before.

Colonel Wilkerson said that Bush and Cheney should be tried for the criminal torture carried out and indeed ordained by the evil pair. He suggested that it obviously leaves the door open to Americans being tortured as a result of our torturing of others. He said the only reason we chose to torture was because we had a "bigger gun" and sometime in the future, be it in his children's or grandchildren's future, America will be poor enough that we will have the same thing done to our troops. With the current sabotage of our economic recovery being perpetrated by the Republicans, one wonders if that day may not happen in his lifetime instead.

He also stated that around 2002, the mode of interrogation changed from one of gathering information about 911, to one of trying to establish a link, be it fictitious or not...between Baghdad and Al Qaeda, using torture as the main means of doing this. Obviously the facts were being made to fit the story of Saddam Hussein's alleged involvement in 911.

Colonel Wilkerson has within the past weeks gone on to give other interviews in which he repeats his willingness to testify against and help put this treasonous duo behind bars where they belong. It is possible that Bush and Cheney could be arrested outside the US and sent to the Hague for trial. There is speculation that a trip that was planned for George Bush to visit Canada in October 2011, may well be cancelled for fear of him being arrested.

Colonel Wilkerson stressed that Cheney has already provided the proof against himself that he willingly and criminally allowed the use of torture. This is just one video that sheds light on his guilt. This video is courtesy of Democracy Now.

God Hates Rick Perry And The Republicans!!

Yes, God hates the Republicans and Rick Perry. As we have been shown previously by Reverends Falwell  and Robertson, God sends all sorts of natural disasters to warn us of his displeasure when we do things he does not approve of. I have to say though, thank God for Reverends Falwell and Robertson, they are the only link we have to God and finding out what God hates and what God wants..and these great men know what God wants.

We can therefore be assured that God really hates Rick Perry for his decision to run for the Presidency. We know this by the terrible Fires God has unleashed on Texas. We also have seen the drought that Texas has had for the past year...a drought of Biblical proportions...because Rick Perry has had his hand in the corruption jar, taking bribes in the form of donations from all his contributors who are handsomely rewarded with lucrative contracts. God is especially angry with Rick Perry for using a mandate to force children to take a vaccine which we know causes brain damage. This we know because God sent a woman to tell Michelle Bachmann so that she could tell the whole country. We have seen God smite Texas with excessively high temperatures as a result of this.

We all remember the Bridge collapse in Minnesota in 2007, the I-35 Mississippi Bridge was made to collapse when Tim Pawlenty was in negotiations with then Presidential candidate John McCain to be his Vice President. God decided to put his foot down on that bridge, causing McCain to get the message and take God's choice for VP, Sarah Palin instead.

God has now made the Sherman Minton Bridge be cracked and closed because of Kentucky's Mitch McConnell's attempts to stifle the economic recovery that the country sorely needs. This changes a 15 minute drive for residents who use the bridge into a two hour re-route to get around the bridge. We have been seeing God's hand at work all over the country showing his disgust at the Republicans who are trying to destabilize the country and send us into a depression just to make President Obama's fail in his attempt to save the country from the devastating Bush policies that are responsible for this recession.

God is really angry about the Republicans and their constant sabotaging of America's recovery and their constant attacks on the jobs of the middle class, who are the backbone on any country. Remove the middle class and America will just become another Third World country. We see God's disgust at this in no uncertain terms, by the horrendous weather patterns, hurricanes, storms, earthquakes and bridge collapses. There is no doubt God is angry at the Republicans...ask any Priest.
