Do Republican Lawmakers Want You To Die?

The question is not how much money should we spend on entitlements, the question should be how much money are we willing to invest in keeping Americans alive! 

The Republicans are masters at distracting us from the topics of the day and the real results their actions will bring. They lie and distract us so that we will not see that people die when the wrong decisions are made about Healthcare, Medicare, Social Security and other needed social programs. 

Republican lawmakers know more people will die as a result of cutting needed social programs, they are trying to hide that fact from you. Republican lawmakers know that when they cut programs or whittle them down to a point where they are not effective to the largest amount of people that need them, some of those people will die. 

Republican lawmakers know that by cutting funding to social programs, families will suffer... kids will go hungry, young people will be forced into serious situations that can cause them to end up in prison... thereby lining the pockets of the big spenders who control the Prisons, which is now a growing business model.

Republican lawmakers know that when the poor and middle class are affected with bad health, starvation and poverty, this gives them a smaller voting block to fight against in all coming elections. That's all this vehement fight about the fiscal cliff is for the Republicans... just another way to stifle the voice of Americans who oppose them in elections, who stand against their grab for power at every election.

Many Americans fought and died to give us the freedom to vote and the right to live a healthy and productive life. Health is a right...not a privilege that some Republican lawmakers have to weigh on their scales of spending versus cutting social programs. 

Feeding and caring for a family is not a privilege that Republican lawmakers need to give their Royal consent to, like some evil lord surveying his peasant farmers. These social programs are a right that every American pays for, by the blood, sweat and tears they put forth, to build a great country like ours. These rights are fought for in the battlefields where our soldiers bleed...and fall. 

Republican Lawmakers do us a dishonor when they lord over us...and our fallen comrades who give their lives for this country so that their family will be taken care of, so that their kids will have a brighter and more secure future... so that their family will live healthy lives instead of suffering and waiting to die... at the hands of Republican Lawmakers.

On The Fiscal Cliff... President Reagan Raised Taxes, So Should We.

President Reagan learned his lessons really fast when it came to mistakes he made in his tax reforms. He famously tried to cut taxes and walk away without raising revenue to cover those cuts... but learned the hard way that you can't have cuts in some areas and not raise revenues to cover it. So a few months after he cut taxes he had to start raising them amazing 11 times!! 

This coming 'Fiscal cliff' event is creating all sorts of discussions and ideas, but if we look at history, it seems all too clear."But in the face of large and growing deficits, Reagan eventually did come around on the need for additional revenue. Even before the 1981 tax cut was on the books, many White House advisers had begun to worry about projected deficits, which were on a steady upward march from 2.6 percent of gross domestic product in 1981 to 4 percent in 1982. They would reach 6 percent in 1983.So, just weeks after his Santa Barbara signing ceremony, Reagan floated the possibility of -- wait for it -- closing loopholes. He was careful to avoid any suggestion that he wanted a tax increase. Instead, he and his advisers asked Congress for "revenue enhancements."
Euphemisms can obscure a variety of sins. And Reagan's euphemist, Larry Kudlow -- then an official in the Office of Management and Budget -- was unrepentant. "There's no better way to sell economic theory than by the euphemistic route," he told the New York Times." ...[in other words, confuse the republican base that just don't get it]

Enter Ben Stein...noted eye drops guy...on Fox news trying to educate their viewers. [There's a joke in that statement somewhere]
Mr. Stein is making the clear cut statement that he agrees with President Obama that some raising of taxes is warranted by the present fiscal needs of the country. 
Courtesy YoungTurks...
"I hate to say this on Fox-- and I hope I'll be able to leave here alive—but I don't think there is any way we can cut spending enough to make a meaningful difference. We're going to have to raise taxes on very rich people, people with income like say $2-3 million a year and up and then slowly move it down,... " When taxes were 70%-80%, "we were extremely prosperous..."

As President Obama said, 'it's math'  when we raise taxes carefully, we will grow the economy in a positive way and become as Ben Stein says 'extremely prosperous'

President Clinton Tours The Hurricane Devastated Rockaways.

President Clinton made an impromptu tour of some of the affected beach areas in the Rockaways in New York yesterday. He was observed by this AI reporter visiting one disaster recovery site in Rockaway Beach, amid cheers of jubilation and applause by residents of the area. President Clinton was briefed by commanders of a large contingent of the National Guard, which has been on hand coordinating the disaster recovery efforts since Hurricane Sandy devastated the area.

Below is some of the exclusive footage by this AI reporter, of what the President saw during his inspection of the devastated area.

His visit comes fast on the heels of a similar visit by President Obama who visited Hurricane Sandy affected areas three days ago. This one-two punch by the Presidents has been a valued boost to the residents who are struggling to reclaim some semblance of their former lives, which thus far has been a visage of wanton devastation that is so widespread, the likes of which New York has not seen in almost a century.

These visits are in stark contrast to a no show by Republican leaders who have apparently forgotten or not seen it fit to grace the distraught residents of the Rockaways with their 'royal' presence yet... weeks after Hurricane Sandy hit the area. I can only deduce that the Republicans have more pressing business to do...which probably involves champagne, country clubs and dinners attended  by the likes of the Romneys and other one-percenters. 

Life goes on for the faceless poor and middle-class families of the Rockaways, who are supported in their time of need by people who really care, much like the Red Cross and the countless churches who bring clothing, food and essential supplies to the devastated areas on a daily basis. 

There is still much of the Rockaways that are yet to have electric power restored as the temperature plummets at night, making it that much harder for residents to cope with the hurricane disaster...which was followed the week after by a Nor'easter, which pummeled the area for a second time bringing winds in excess of 60mph, heavy rains and much unwanted flooding to already devastated areas.

'Occupy Sandy' has also set up shop in the area and I look forward to bringing you an update as recovery operations continue.

CNN's Soledad O'Brien Spectacularly Hands Republican Congressman His Head On A Silver Platter Over And Over And Over Again (Video)

I am at a loss for words to see that Joe Heck, a Republican Congressman on the Intelligence Committee, who is about to be part of an Intelligence Hearing at which former CIA Director Patraeus is due to testify about the Benghazi event, is schooled over and over on his obvious lack of Intelligence and the sheer vindictive attitude he and his fellow Republicans harbor against the Obama Administration as they try to carry on the country's business.

At issue was a moronic talking point put out by Republicans which says that UN Ambassador Susan Elizabeth Rice carries some sort of 'pseudo' blame, for presenting the Obama Administration's position right after the Benghazi incident as being of the understanding that a video was the accelerant that caused the deaths of Americans at the US Consulate.

Mr. (Heck if I know) Joe Heck was asked over and over to explain with any coherency (to no avail) what is the difference between Condoleezza Rice's outright lies about WMD's and Susan Rice's truthful rendering of the information that at the time was presented to the Obama Administration and why one statement is ok and the other is not.

What is at issue with both statements, is the fact that the Republicans keep  insisting the lies that were told by Condaleeza Rice about WMD's were acceptable while the truthful statements by Ambassador Susan Rice was somehow unacceptable even though that is what the Intelligence sources had said they thought at the time. 

This is truly hilarious. He tempers his idiotic statement after being bitch-slapped, resigning to the admission that he does not blame Susan Rice...(anymore.) Here is the video...

Ranking Republican Reveals - "Conservatives Fleeced And ‘Lied To By Conservative Entertainment Complex’

David Frum broke the most startling revelation  today by admitting - “Republicans have been fleeced and exploited, and lied to by a conservative entertainment complex,”

Mr. Frum, once a speechwriter for President George W Bush, was on MSNBC's  'Morning Joe' when he broke this piece of shocking news to the panel on the show.  

This  well known contributing editor for 'The Daily Beast' and 'Newsweek' qualified his statement when he said... "The Republican party has a party of followership, The problem with Republican leaders is that they’re cowards, not that they’re fundamentally mistaken, The real locus of the problem is the GOP activist base and the Republican donor base. They went apocalyptic over the past four years and that was exploited by a lot of people in the conservative world... I won't soon forget the lupine smile that play over the head of one major conservative institution when he told me that our donors think that the apocalypse has arrived...that Republicans have been fleeced and exploited, and lied to by a conservative entertainment complex,”

Scarborough interjected" Wait...I want you ...and I'm dead serious...I want you to slowly repeat this...[long winded comment here] ...hopefully conservatives would go back and look at what commentators [limbaugh, hannity, levin, O'reilly, Fox and Friends, Cavuto, to name a few]  and websites said, over the past three weeks when they knew this race was lost."

David Frum repeated his headline ...“Republicans have been fleeced and exploited, and lied to by a conservative entertainment complex,” ...'I name names in the book" [He just released an e-book titled 'Why Romney Lost']

Joe followed... " Conservatives have been lied to by people who engage in niche marketing and make tens of millions of dollars engaging in niche marketing, and I’m a capitalist, God bless ‘em they can do whatever they want to do…but that’s not an electoral strategy, that’s a business strategy for them.”

Frum later tweeted the challenge ..."By the way, if anybody at Fox would like me to repeat to their faces what I said on Morning Joe this AM, I accept. Unlikely, I know, but …"

Senate To Have Historic Number Of Females.

The Republicans' 'War on women' seems to have given them exactly what they wished for, a war... from women who I am sure will make their presence felt in many ways. It is no secret that when women are involved in making decisions that deal with women's issues, the outcomes are far more advantageous to women than if the traditional sexist old white men made the calls.

There is no way that those stuck up old farts would know the slightest thing about what women go through when faced with excruciating pain or overwhelming odds against their well being. It had become increasingly difficult to watch the old farts propose bill after bill that limited women's well being, limited their contraceptive options and limited their abortion options. writes... "Joining the Senate will be Republican Deb Fischer (Neb.) and Democrats Tammy Baldwin (Wis.), Heidi Heitkamp (N.D.), Mazie Hirono (Hawaii) and Elizabeth Warren (Mass.).

All six Democratic women up for reelection -- Sens. Maria Cantwell (Wash.), Dianne Feinstein (Calif.), Kirsten Gillibrand (N.Y.), Amy Klobuchar (Minn.), Claire McCaskill (Mo.) and Debbie Stabenow (Mich.) -- won their races.

Rep. Shelley Berkley (D-Nev.) lost her Senate race to incumbent Dean Heller.
Five Republican female candidates lost on Tuesday. Wendy Long ran against Gillibrand, Elizabeth Emken went up against Feinstein and Linda Lingle ran against Hirono. Linda McMahon in Connecticut and Heather Wilson in New Mexico also lost.

There are currently 17 female U.S. senators, which had also been a record number. Sens. Kay Bailey Hutchison (R-Texas) and Olympia Snowe (R-Maine) are both retiring"

For the next two years we will have the best Senate we have ever had, simply because there will be a total of twenty female Senators who will be willing to make the hard choices and decisions that old men seem not to grasp; decisions that cause women to face harm and even death... as a result more women will live and prosper under the watchful eyes of these female Senators, both Democratic and Republican alike.

"When women are part of the negotiation and are part of decision-making, the outcomes are just better," Gillibrand told The Huffington Post last year, discussing the importance of having female representation in the chamber. "When we have our dinners with the women in the Senate -- the Democrats and Republicans -- we have so much common ground. We agree on so many basic principles and values. I think if there were more women at the decision-making table, we would get more things done."

Elizabeth Warren Wins Back Kennedy's Seat, Beats Scott Brown!

Elizabeth Warren did what everyone wanted, she beat Scott Brown in a tight race for Ted Kennedy's seat. This will always be Ted's seat... he earned that right as the 'Lion of the Senate.' Scott Brown fought a good race as he was widely regarded by many as a moderate.

According to Maurice Cunningham, a political scientist at the University of Massachusetts, he was well liked enough, to present a challenge for the Democrats to field a candidate to run against him. 

USAToday writes... "He's a very strong and very deft candidate," Cunningham said. "He's persuaded folks he's an independent voice. But Warren, a Harvard Law School professor, erupted onto the scene, apparently from nowhere, when a speech she gave in Andover about economics went viral and gained her a national following. She had been an adviser for President Obama and came up with the concept of the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau... She's got a lot of passion, particularly on economic issues...She's got that fire that reminds you of Kennedy a little bit"

Warren is a breath of fresh air for the party and the people of Massachusetts who, with Brown, have had to swallow the Republican swill much as Joe Lieberman's constituents have had to do. That is as disgusting as having a blue dog Democrat as your Senator...something I have a hard time accepting. They stab you in the back more times than most. Congratulations to Elizabeth Warren, we look forward to following your bright future as Senator!

Proof That Red States Are The Real Welfare States.

I had written this article previously that showed in no uncertain terms that the Red States were the ones that were receiving more dollars back from the government than the money they give to the Feds. That article gave us these figures...'States receiving the most federal funding per tax dollar paid:
1. New Mexico: $2.63
2. West Virginia: $2.57
3. Mississippi: $2.47
4. District of Colombia: $2.41
5. Hawaii: $2.38
6. Alabama: $2.03
7. Alaska: $1.93
8. Montana: $1.92
9. South Carolina: $1.92
10. Maine: $1.78

Now we have new data coming from US Dept Of Agriculture and crunched by the financial whizzes at Bloomberg that tell a different story about why Red States take the cake at being the Welfare queens. According to the findings... "Seventy percent of counties with the fastest-growth in food-stamp aid during the last four years voted for the Republican presidential candidate in 2008 according to U.S. Department of Agriculture data compiled by Bloomberg. They include Republican strongholds like King County, Texas, which in 2008 backed Republican John McCain by 92.6 percent, his largest share in the nation; and fast-growing Douglas County,Colorado."

Douglas County Republican Party's Mark Baisley thinks that the republican voter will be on Mitt Romney's side... even though they are largely the majority of the '47%' that Mitt seems to want to scrape off his shoe like dog droppings. Mr. Nicholas Colas, chief market strategist at ConvergEx Group LLC thinks President Obama will command the more [risk averse] educated voter who takes the less risky and longer road to success.

Romney had [unintelligently] suggested transferring control of food stamps and other federal programs to states but that would just end in disaster when Nature unfurls her fury on states; like we saw happen with Hurricane Sandy last week, and with Hurricane Katrina before.  The states hit by disaster do not have the capability to deal with these programs while they are reeling from natural or other disasters, this would mean families would starve for weeks or months if this were to happen.

With that lack of intelligent thinking on the part of Romney, it is pretty scary to think that a 1%er will make compassionate decisions where the 47% are concerned...I hope Mitt loses this election.

The Romneys’ Hands Caught In The Cookie Jar, Time For Mitt To Prove Himself

It was learned yesterday that Mitt and Ann Romney have more than likely broken ethics laws. The law is simple; The writes:
Federal law requires that candidates disclose stock holdings that are affected by government action—and Romney’s million-dollar (at least) investment in a hedge fund that bought up Delphi stocks surely fits that bill…  Under any rational interpretation of the Ethics in Government Act of 1978, these are holdings that a presidential candidate would need to disclose, because they can be affected by government action.”

On Thursday afternoon, UAW President Bob King and SEIU Vice President Tom Woodruff, among others, called for an official investigation into Mitt Romney’s investments and the possible ethics violations stemming from those investigations. Mitt’s investments in Delphi stock, through a blind trust in Ann Romney’s name, is the center of  attention because the investments clearly raise concerns of violations.
The event on Thursday was held in Toledo, OH. A strongly worded letter was sent to Mr. Don Fox, General Counsel and Principal Deputy Director, United States Office of Government Ethics. Excerpts from the letter reads as follows:
We are writing to provide you with further evidence of the pressing need to conduct the investigation we requested in our previous letter of August 23, 2012 into presidential candidate Mitt Romney’s financial disclosures, which do not appear to be in compliance with the Ethics in Government Act, 5 U.S.C. App. § 101 et seq.

As we stressed in our initial letter, those disclosures lack information about the candidate’s stock holdings which the public has a right to know. As you are aware, the Act requires candidates for federal office to disclose their financial holdings so that the public can identify potential conflicts of interest and personal economic  priorities of federal officials and candidates. While some officials use blind trusts to satisfy these disclosure requirements, Mitt Romney himself has said “The blind trust is an age-old ruse, if you will. Which is to say you can always tell a blind trust what it can and cannot do.”
The issue is not if or how much money the investment made, the issue is that, in all honesty, a Presidential candidate must release certain financial information as proof that he/she is of a caliber that is high enough – sterling enough – to represent the country on a global stage.

It is high time that Mitt and his ‘blind’ trusts are investigated. How can he run for the Presidency without revealing his (in my opinion) tainted and questionable taxes? I refuse to have an alleged thief for a President and the onus lies upon him to prove his quality and commitment to represent America…and by extension, the world.

Pres Clinton Says He Is More Enthusiastic About Pres Obama Now, Than In 2008...That's Huge!

President Clinton is on the stump for President Obama... Who would know more about great job performance than a former President? That speaks volumes because right now there are so many negative ads on the TV and radio about President Obama that the independents are still confused about where to cast their vote. writes...'Former President Bill Clinton struck at GOP presidential hopeful Mitt Romney Tuesday, saying "the arithmetic" of his tax cuts plan and his plot to create 12 million new jobs don't add up and President Barack Obama thwarted an even deeper economic depression...

"I'm far more enthusiastic about it today than I was then," Clinton said, noting he did 40 events for Obama four years ago. Clinton lashed out at Romney's claim that he would create 12 million jobs, saying independent economists have predicted that if Obama's existing policies continued there would be 12 million new jobs created anyway in the next four years.

"The essential argument of Governor Romney is, 'Hey I look like a president, I act like a president, I have proven I can change my message for any circumstance and position,'" Clinton said. "So elect me and I'll claim credit for the jobs of President Obama's policies."

The safest and surest way that undecided voters can weigh the issue is to listen to the one person that they can trust, someone who has been a President, who has seen the 'behind the scenes' classified stuff, someone who understands the demands faced by the Commander in Chief... indeed someone who warned President Bush about the threat of Osama Bin Laden! 

For President Clinton to say that he is more enthusiastic about President Obama now than in 2008, is in itself the greatest endorsement one President can give to another.

What he is saying is that he has now seen No. 44 in action, he has seen him pass through the fire and has seen that fire forge No.44 into the man of true grit and determination... needed to hold the reigns of progress for the next crucial four years. He has seen No.44 prove his mettle... prove his compassion for the American people and his ability to lead us out of this dark Republican created past.

We are at a time of great insecurity but also great promise, a time of great disasters but also unyielding hope, we see the agony of defeat behind us and we also see the unlimited potential  of America's prosperity on the path forward. A path that leads America once more, to victory.

Romney and his cadre of foreign secret donors want nothing but the worst for America, so they can swoop down like vultures and collect the carcasses that their policies will create. They view America as just another market for them to manipulate and suck bone dry of its resources and its people's hopes and dreams.

The middle class is the backbone of any growing economy and the international companies see a fallen America as a prize well worth exploiting...turning us into another wasteland of stolen dreams, broken people, wanton destruction and crippling poverty...this must not happen...this will not happen under President Obama. His love for America is proven... he does not hide his money overseas. He does not bet against America...we should not either.
