About Republican idiocy on health care policies? -Texas politician Rick Perry leads the way

‘Gov. Rick Perry, who is vocally opposed to the (Obama health care) law, says the state can “deliver health care more efficiently, more effectively and cheaper than the federal government can.” That’s great, Rick, but you are a liar, now aren’t you. Your state, Texas, which is where I am from, actually has the highest percentage of its population of any of the 50 states who remain without any health care coverage. So you are a liar! See A look at the health care law in all 50 states

As bad as Obama’s law is, it at least gives lip service to the reality of their being a major problem here. None of the Republicans will do even that, and together the 2 corporate political parties just don’t seem to give much a damn about the actual health of the US people. To have good health, one must be able to access the medical system. Many in the US have extreme difficulties in doing that. How long will The People have to endure the 2 capitalist parties playing games with themselves on this issue?

WWII vet, age 92, finally diagnosed with PTSD why, because we care?

Sgt. Stanley Friedman, a 92 yr-old veteran of the WWII North African campaign, was finally diagnosed with PTSD. Pro bono lawyers couldn’t even verify his service records, but after sixty years of denying his claims, the VA has at last been forced to grant Friedman compensation. Is this really the result of crafty legal work, at long last, or of a PR climate now overrun by Big Pharma, whose PTSD drug market windfall needed a poster boy for the baby boomer set, the type of veteran Americans favor over those from less “good” wars?

Insurance companies in the US treat conditions that don’t need treatment while giving others no care at all

The essential absurdity of Big Business run medical care in the US can be seen in the following Reuters report… Unnecessary cancer treatment in men on the rise. Meanwhile, many people needing screening for cancer and even essential treatments for cancer will be turned away by the Big Business docs. We’re living SICKO all the time in the US of A.

Shit I learned in school

…because, really, I DO believe there’s a deliberate sabotage of Public Education being done simply by handing a “liberal” program over to be administered by “conservatives”.
In 7th grade in Texas you’re taught Texas History. Some of it would be almost unrecognizable from a Yankee point of view.
For instance, we were taught that the Civil War wasn’t about slavery, it was about State’s Rights.
State’s Rights to spend civic money and exercise military and police powers to enforce slavery.
We were also told, and I have reason to believe that it’s gotten worse, we were told that the Slaves were well treated, given decent food and housing, and Medical Care. Happy Days on de ol’ Plantation wif all de Darkies singin’ and happy and de Massa jes’ lubbin all of dem!
O, de sun shines bright
on my old Kentucky home
it’s summer and the darkies are gay…
You smile and laugh and sing because the Massah would beat you and maybe have you killed if you indicated any dissatisfaction with the arrangement. It’s that simple.
The Slaves were all Happy and Content and Well Treated… so why do the Corporate Slaveholders of the Modern Plantation, the ones who advance this bald-face lie about how good slaves had it, refuse to provide health care and good nutrition and housing for their Debt-slaves?
Is it only profitable to provide a decent standard of living if you outright OWN the workers?

They don’t make too much comment about how these Happy, Contented Slaves all smilin’ and singin’ and the Good Massah lubbin’ every one of dem… why they would be forbidden to take any outside employment in their spare time, to perhaps earn enough money to buy their freedom?
The Prison System uses a similar tactic to keep its slaves from escaping, if you’re caught with money you’re punished.
Likewise the Slaves were forbidden Education, even so much as to teach a slave to read was punishable by death. And to BE that slave?
Thus are the scions of the Debt Slaves treated now, public education being snatched away from our kids and allocated only to the children of the Merchant master class.
And health care and nutrition… look to the TeaTards with their anger and hatred toward people who actually receive health care, which the TeaTard Hate Freak leaders say only the Wealthy deserve.

Of course they will LIE and say they’re only looking out for States Rights…. Corporate State rights to hold people in slavery.
And threatening a new Civil War in which they’ll kill a lot of Americans to keep things that way.
Them Corporate Slaveowners sho’ does love them the idea of Killing Americans.
Why I believe the Texas History Textbooks are being slanted more to the right… Rick “GoodHair” Perry, fascist dictator of Texas, said the older textbooks were too Liberal WTF?
And in Texas the Governor determines the curriculum for the schools in the entire state. So look for even MORE brainwashed morons who will grow up thinking that keeping human beings in bondage and Killing PEOPLE who object is actually a good thing.

Labor Rally In Austin commemorated Fallen Workers

While the "grass roots" TeaBags and their Billionaire Masters were bitching about how badly victimized they think they are if they have to pay workers an adequate wage or compensation for their injuries... or deaths.

For those who think Disabled Workers complain too much about how we’re cast out by society, these are mock coffins carried to commemorate the ones who are now forever silent and can no longer complain about how deregulated workplaces, Union Busting TeaParty “heroes” like Don Blankenship and Scott Walker are literally killing us.
The one killed every two and a half days statistic doesn’t even touch the statistics about wages and health care and other compensation for our work, being cut off because the Koch-suckers in the Tea Party…

Decided that their Bosses, the ones who funded and organized their “grass Astroturf roots” fake revolution are being “victimized” if they get a 4.9 point gain on their investments instead of a 5, and blaming the workers for demanding a fair wage and living standards. We’re not allowed to demand a profit for selling OUR products and service, OUR labor, or even to be paid what it costs us to produce it… for THEM to enjoy.
The TeaBags barely have time to turn from eating the flesh of our babies (figuratively) (ok, literally) long enough to tell us that we’re “bums” for not wanting to support their Parasite Class.

It doesn’t reflect the workers seriously injured, every day, because in Texas, and soon the rest of the nation, “job killing” safety regulations and environmental regulations will be rolled back, even eliminated. The public lands? Hah! fully privatized, or soon will be. The Lazy God-Damned Republican parasites in Ohio voted not only to silence the workers but also to seize the public lands, even the state parks, deny the public access to them while they destroy them to extract every last drop of oil and lump of coal from “their’ domain.

 

 

 

 

“Invest in America” speak-out at Lame-Bone’s Office Tomorrow

Instead of his lame-ass “town halls” like the Tea-Party ones he held for health care, remember those? The one at a Country Club on the far edge of town that started after the bus stopped running on a Friday evening, no more bus service till Monday morning? Working Class need not apply?
Then they filled the hall with a Republican Party strategy session before the “open to everyone” Town Hall? And the Republicans stayed for the “open” Town Hall, making sure nobody else could come in? Yeah… THAT old Pig tactic.
This Speak-out is outside his Luxury Office Suite, where anybody with a million-dollar annual income and a campaign contribution check has easy access. Again, Poor people, workers… need not apply.
Unless the Punk can prove that he actually does own one square inch more of the streets and sidewalks than any other citizen, there ain’t Jack they can do about it.
Bring stereo equipment, something with microphones and amps. Make sure every TeaBag sellout who works for him can hear what the REAL people have to say.
10:30 tomorrow morning, Thursday 24 Feb 2011, at Doug Lamborns congressional district office in Colorado Springs.
MoveOn.org is sponsoring, and this is an info blurb:

In dozens of state legislatures and in Congress, Republicans are proposing massive cuts to education, police, emergency responders, and vital human services—instead of asking big corporations and millionaires to pay their fair share. This is a moment for national action, so we’re holding Invest in America speak-outs tomorrow (Thursday) and will follow them up with rallies in all 50 state capitals on Saturday.

Boehner says “Mandate to Kill the Disabled! Hooray!”

So, what was the first thing the Korporate Kash Klub putting on their agenda today? Destroy any hope of actual Health Care.
Why don’t the Republicans take out their 2nd Amendment Specials and just shoot any disabled people they see on the street? It’s not because they don’t want to hurt us. They showed that at every one of their TeaBag rallies, with their willingness to KILL 120 Americans every single day, and that’s just those of us who had Corporate Health Insurance. The rest of us die undiagnosed and uncounted. Miss Johnnie got a quote on health “insurance” yesterday, 485 dollars a month at the lowest, and that’s with a $5k Deductible. That’s three weeks pay at minimum wage, the Minimum Wage the Right Wing want to abolish in favor of paying us an even smaller fraction of what it costs us to work for their profit.
So if it’s not an unwillingness to kill us, then the reason they don’t do it directly is really obvious. They’re too God-damned YELLOW. Any speeches they want to make about compassion or not wanting to hurt the cripples, are bullshit. It’s trying to make themselves look good while they’re (temporarily, until they can do it somewhere out of the public eye) backing their shit down.
The Rand Paul action last Monday, where they ganged up on Ms Lauren Valle for DARING to question His Royal Highness about the Korporate Kash Klub backing he receives.
There were Kentucky COPS there watching, but were the coward bastards immediately arrested? Nope. Pigs take up for Other Pigs. It’s typical behavior for their Cowardly Sort.
They made a big issue of Terri Schiavo, said they had offered to pay her long term care forever, but those of us who aren’t rich or aren’t ripe for being a Public Example of their Fake Charity, like Martha Jamie Helton Brown, we’re simply told to fuck off and die.

Mrs Brown was denied health care the same way Boehner wants to continue denying health care, forever, and his Tea Party backers are cheering at the prospect of Killing More Americans.
They sure do love them some American-killin’.
It’s why they took automatic weapons to their Hate Rallies, they were hoping for yet another excuse to Kill Americans.

Happy 18th Re-Birthday, to me…

It was 18 years ago last Friday that I woke up as a healthy, badly underpaid and moderately radicalized minimum wage Construction Laborer and 5 minutes before quiting and pay time (they didn’t pay me either) was reborn as a badly disabled, even worse paid and definitely Radicalized Ex-Construction worker.
The De-Regulated Fully Privatized, Right To Work but No Right To Health Care Corporate Regime that I’m supposed to not even TRY to vote against next week, “Defeat is Inevitable, Resistance is Futile, You will be assimilated” attitude has cost me the use of my feet. In case any of the Tea-bag or Republican Mainstream or other Right Wing Extremist groups wonder why anybody would vote against their “Freedom to Conform and Obey” platform, that’s not a complete answer but it’s a Really Damned Good Start. Had there been fully socialized health care in America for the past 18 years my right foot would not have died and it would have saved almost a quarter of a million dollars in my case alone. Shove that up your Fiscal “conservative” ummm… left nostril, o ye Stupid Ones, and then line up and take turns kissing my ..errr… right foot.
The one I can’t even MOVE anymore.
And all the while sing your silly-ass chants about Obamacare being Tyranny.

PA Homeland Security Chief: Burning Hate Flag = Terrorism

That’s right, folks, according to the PA Homeland Security Privatized Terror Alert System, National Burn The Confederate Flag Day, a protest against the TeaTard Racist “patriot” party, is an act of Terrorism. Meanwhile the TeaTards inciting Mosque Burning, Scripture Burning, Assaults and even Murders on behalf of their Racial Purist Agenda, doesn’t raise a red “flag” with the Private Pig Group.

Public Rallies, Town Hall Meetings where environmentalists were expected to testify against new coal, oil and gas leases polluting their land and water and putting their lives at risk for Corporate Profit, also considered “Terror Threats”. But not the TeaTard rallies. Or the equally Racist Minutemen Rallies like the one where both the “rebel” flag and the Nazi Flag are shown.

Yep, you can spout Anti-American Terrorist Rhetoric, denounce your fellow Americans as not deserving of any equal rights because you don’t consider them Americans, advocate and champion acts of violence against Americans, but you’d better not talk back to the TeaTards, the Minute”men” or their Corporate Masters.

Alle Sieg Heil am der Korporatisch-Überfuhrer!

In case the usual whiners think I’m being too harsh in my opinion on Sarah Palin, the MinuteKlan and the Ku Klux Klan Tea Party so-called “patriots”…

People who say, as they HAVE, loudly and continually since their Hate Agenda was voted down two years ago, and before that even, that I don’t have any rights as an American or even as a Human Being, because of my “racial” background and disabilities and economic status, can kiss my broken feet, broken courtesy of their Reaganite “free” market policies and by constant denial of health care for 14 YEARS afterward. There’s no amount of LYING about them being just “conservatives concerned about excess taxation” that will make me believe in their supposedly benign nature, EVER. Once you’ve been told that you don’t even deserve to LIVE you realize that the PUKES don’t actually like you or respect you, so, Why Should I Like Or Respect The Hate-Mongering Murdering Bitches?

Glenn Beck going blind, yes, it IS paybacks… from himself to himself

Now, I do know that Macular Degeneration isn’t caused by lifestyle choices. Where HIS guilt in his own blindness is that the Corporations who FUND and ORGANIZE the TeaTards and also pay him more money a month than Real Construction Workers make in a LIFETIME of REAL work, to pose as a Working Class Citizen, have with the help of the Republican, Libertarian, and now Racist-ass Tea Parties, consistently blocked research into Macular Degeneration.
Consistently. The same way Ronald and Nancy Reagan blocked socially and politically any effective research into Alzheimers until Ronald was diagnosed. Their Accomplices at FOX “news” manipulation have funded the TeaTards at first “secretly”, an open secret but they denied it, until the Supremes, most notably Clarence “Uncle” Thomas, whose wife is a Corporate Lawyer Whore, decided that Corporations are better than and have more rights than us mere mortal peasants, and now the TeaTards have a little dilemma on their bloodstained hands… They’ve been outed by their Owners as being Corporate Whores.
Now, I don’t really want Glenn Beck to Go Blind. For one thing he’s going to suck up Medical Resources trying to buy his way out of it, even if the Macular Degeneration research were fully funded today it won’t save his eyes.
The punk-ass Bitch made a career out of Spiritual Blindness and while he probably DOES deserve blindness.. we the people really don’t deserve to have to listen to him make himself into a Pity-pot Martyr for years to come.

Much like Rush Limbaugh, when he had chest pains in Honolulu, and was kept for observation overnight. Longer actually. Then said he got no special treatment, ANYBODY with chest pains gets that treatment…

He neglected to mention “IN HAWAII”. Which has Socialized Medicine and has for 30 years. People in the full-on Corporate States like Texas and Colorado don’t get that kind of treatment, unless they’re Rich.

The TeaTards also don’t mention that all medical research is publicly funded, even through “private” donations. The Richest “generously” give to the foundations, BUT, they get the money back in Tax Breaks.
My, what Love and Charity! And of course, like our friend Bernie Herpin tried really hard to avoid saying, they have somebody blow a trumpet before them when they do their alms… on the public dime, and probably write off the expense of the trumpet player as a Business Expense. Such VICTIMS they are! Pay other peoples money to make themselves look good then pay MORE Tax-deductible Other Peoples money to make themselves out to be Christ-on-the-Cross if somebody happens to mention it.

Glenn Beck is expected to milk his “misfortune” to the tune of an eight digit pay raise on his Corporate Lie Show.

Meanwhile, a POOR person, a Real Worker, who starts going blind from M.D., or perhaps from workplace hazards, or from Environmental pollution, if he doesn’t have the Really Expensive Insurance he can’t afford on a REAL Workmans’ salary.. ALL of which Glenn Beck “blindly” opposes any remediation thereof… won’t even be diagnosed until far too late.

If the massive funding FOX is going to Hypocritically “give” at Corporate Welfare Tax-Break public expense, to the Macular Degeneration research, and actually DO find a cure or at least a Treatment, the Working Person I used as an example still won’t benefit.

Because Health Care is a Privilege of the parasite class.

Hey, TeaBags, you know those Free Market Insurance Companies..

The ones you trust to sort out the health care dilemma by consistently denying Health Care to as many people as possible, thus somehow improving health care for everybody. Yeah. THOSE Insurance companies. Their Life Insurance affiliates just shat all over the War Widows and orphans. And, since there’s a little bit of Taxpayer backing of their scams, through direct buying of their “service” to hidden subsidies like Tax Breaks for THEM because they’re in a War Industry. Then there’s THIS:

For the families of fallen soldiers, funds from their loved ones’ life insurance policies may provide little comfort for their loss, but it just adds insult to injury to learn that insurance companies have set the system up so they make a profit by holding onto payouts, using the funds to make more money, and pocketing most of the earnings [1].

According to an excellent investigation [1] published by Bloomberg yesterday, that’s exactly what happens with “retained-asset accounts,” which have become “standard operating procedure” in the life insurance industry.

They’re holding back on giving the Families control of funds that are rightfully theirs and reinvesting the money. The thieving nature of Capital once again rears its head.
The “checks” aren’t accepted in many places because they’re in a Savings Account rather than a Checking Account, and the funds have to be transferred to Checking in order for a check to not bounce. A lot of on-the-edge-themselves small businesses can’t afford that lapse in time because it will screw up THEIR accounts. You know, the ones that are on the edge.
The “savings account Interest” paid to the families account is like a half a percent. The banks that are underwriting the “checking accounts” are getting far more in interest simply because they’re Banks, and big ones at that. Like, the banks that crashed the economy investing in the Mortgage Scam.

There IS one thing that can be done, though. Folks, when you get that “checkbook” draw out every penny of the funds. Manage your account yourself instead of letting the Friendly Neighborhood Thief Big Brother do it for you. If they were so hot at investing your funds in the first place they wouldn’t be on the bailout lists in the second place.

Just one more instance where “Trust Us, we’re the experts” doesn’t actually work. Their “Experts” didn’t know or didn’t care about the Pyramid Scheme mortgage market. So why SHOULD you trust them?

Isn’t it strange…

The same TeaBags and Reagan Revolution and Christian Coalition freaks who say they’re opposed to Assisted Suicide, gladly and with a hymn on their Lying lips promote Suicide by Tobacco, Suicide by Fast Food, Suicide by dependence on motor vehicles instead of using our muscles. I know there are many of us in America who can’t get out and jog, I can’t walk more than a couple of blocks without pain. Due to my very infamous and uncompensated on-the-JOB injuries. But we aren’t everybody. Although the Cigarettes and the Diabetes will probably make it to where the ones who make all the laughing sneering excuses for their lifestyles won’t be able to walk without pain as they enter the Expensive To Everybody final stages of their lives.

Meanwhile the TeaBags and all their assorted nasty Corporate Suck accomplices, scream as loudly against actually making the Fat Food and Tobacco and Oil and Automobile industries actually pay their way, against any notion that the Tobacco and Fat Food and Automotive industries should stop chanting several THOUSAND times a day at our children to buy their products.
To make the Marketing Geniuses for McDonalds and Ford and Liggett Morris stop funding “news” outlets like Fox which promote the arrogantly murderous notions that Driving One Person In A Car Made For 8 does no harm, and that anybody who points out that they’re lying is a “whiner liberal”. Same with the McDonalds and WalMart and similar Accomplices.
Insisting in Fake “news” stories that are really commercials for the Tobacco Industry that there’s no link between second hand smoke and cancer or other diseases in non-smokers. Deny deny deny.

Denial is one of the key factors in diagnosing Addiction. The kicker of it is, the same statistics their Accomplices on one hand are denying, are provided by Insurance companies. How cool is that?
The Insurance Corporations who make money denying people health care IF their “lifestyles” include eating too much and smoking, and not exercising, are funded from the same pool of Blood Money that funds the industries of Greed and Sloth and slow suicide by deliberately concentrating, burning and inhaling the smoke from Toxic Chemicals.
And then starts wars to get the raw materials or keep the producers of those raw materials in Economic Vassal State slavery to the Corporations.
Like the agricultural interests in Central and South America which aren’t locally owned, no sir, they’re owned in America, that provide the raw material for one edge of the many-edged Suicide Sword.
Capitalism eats itself from the inside.
The Oil producing countries which are similarly owned from the least to the greatest, from the Puppet government “kings” down to the poorest Other Slaves, by the corporations. All backed by U.S. Military power, paid for on credit that will never possibly be repaid, to keep the Peasants in those countries from rebelling against their American Corporate Masters.

In case anybody thinks that’s an anti-American statement, I’ll remind once more that the Corporations keep American workers in thrall as well. Wouldn’t know it to hear the TeaBags rant and rave though. They think or at least SAY they think they’re standing for Liberty.

Yep, and the Right To Life as well. The Liberty of their corporations, and the Right To Life unless the Corporate Masters have to give up some of their privileges to allow those lives to continue.

Hypocrites, liars… a swarm of slugs in search of a bag of salt.

Glenn Beck might go blind— Karma?

Oh well, at least he has his millions in Blood Money gotten for being a Professional Liar on Fox. That will pay for adaptive technologies, therapy, training in how to survive with a disability… you know, the kind of stuff he and his fellow TeaBag ASSHOLES have tried to keep OTHER disabled people from having any chance of obtaining.
The Slash-and-burn approach to Health Care funding that reached a fever pitch during the Reagan/Bush/Bush junior Regime. The kind of funding cuts and service cuts Ron Paul endorsed, fought for, loudly and proudly boasted of accomplishing. Kick the cripple when he’s down, eh, Mr Paul, Mr Beck, Mr and Mrs TeaBag?
The kind of Denial of Basic Health Care that killed Martha.

Don’t think, Mr and Mrs TeaBag, Mr Beck, Mr Paul and your entire party, that I’ll ever forget that. Every time I see your Fat Smug Smarmy faces chanting about how people who are poor and disabled, poor because of our disabilities, how we don’t deserve to live. That we should basically Curl up and DIE. Which is what happened with Martha…. Every time you smug smarmy pricks get together and condemn the Disabled to such a fate and say that GOD tells you to do it, I remember Martha and her final days and hours. I remember how the therapies that were in place, available but only to those who have money, the therapies that could have saved her life or made it somewhat more bearable, at the very least, were DENIED to her.

I remember that every time one of your Brainwashed Zombie supporters tells me that “well, at least you have equal treatment in the Emergency Room” or “The Liberals LIE when they say that Poor and Disabled Americans don’t have equal access to health care” when I know better. When Rush Limbaugh came close to telling the truth about his Emergency Room Care in Hawaii… and then said that everybody gets that kind of care. Sure they do, Rush… In HAWAII which has full on socialized health care that IS available to everybody.
You left that part out, didn’t you, Rush? And your Fellow Hate Freaks who equate surviving with disabilities to a Sin. Fellow Hate Freaks like Glenn Beck.

Mrs Palin, so Smug and “I’m a good mom” with her son, oh how difficult it must be for you, having to raise a child with all the amenities and comforts and above all Access To Proper Health Care that you and your fellow TeaBags seek to DENY to other mothers and children who aren’t as Rich as you.
Such a kind and Christian lot, you are.

All that steam you worked up over a Health Care bill that might just stanch the Rapidly increasing Money Hemorrhage and save Health Care, instead of allowing your Fellow Corporate Thieves to take away every bit of that, and still charge us everything WE have for it…

Why not get angry about the ten-to-a-hundred times MORE money being spent on your Conquest of the world, or rather, your FAILED conquests?

Mr Beck, I know a man who is blinded from a bullet to the head in one of the Wars you and your bloodthirsty crew of draft-dodging Propagandists make money from promoting.

I pity you for the trials you’re about to face. Not enough, though, to give you a sympathy vote. You, or your literally God-Damned DoucheBag Party.

You make money from preaching denial of health care, the same way you make money from preaching and enabling the wars. You make money, in short, on the shed blood of the victims of both the War, and the victims of Denial of Health Care. Your money has blood on it that will never wash out.

Operation Home Front = fake patriotism

Enough already. If you “support” the troops or the war, then why don’t you actually “support” them? Dig down deep and pay your God-damn taxes to fund it.
Can’t afford the war under the current Tax Scheme?
Too GOD-DAMNED BAD. You should have protested George Bush and his Corporate Thieves when they STARTED the bitch. You should have protested THEN and you really need to protest it NOW, the tax-breaks given to the Wealthiest People On The Planet so they don’t have to pay for the “troops” to go out and rob one of the poorest nations on the planet, Afghanistan, on their behalf. Those Corporate Murderers who are benefiting from the war are getting their blood money essentially for FREE because STUPID PEOPLE or LAZY PEOPLE wouldn’t ever stand up to them.
Some of you who have influence in the major parties, maybe people with military titles in front of your names? The kind of name-and-title combinations politicians drool over when it’s election time… YEAH, YOU!
Get off your Fat Uniformed Butt and make Congress aware that THEIR bribe-taking and favoritism to the Blood-sucking Corporations have NOT gone un-noticed. TeaBags, you bitch and whine about a health care plan that might stop the rapidly accelerating bleed-off of American Health Care money, or even just maybe slow it down? Get off your Racist Butts and start protesting the Pentagon giving away TEN TIMES as much to a bunch of Parasites who don’t even Pay God-damn taxes!

Do it NOW! Instead of waving a piece of cloth and a plastic magnetic yellow ribbon at ME.
And stop putting up signs at the grocery stores begging for money to go to the families of the Troops, if you’re too God-Damned stingy to pay them for the war YOU support.

It’s also very worthy of note that Operation Home Front and the USO and other such organizations give you a Tax Credit for your donations. That means, in plain English, that the people who practice the FAKE patriotism of “donating” to these organizations are getting THE DONATIONS RETURNED TO THEM, courtesy of other people who ACTUALLY DO PAY THEIR TAXES. Such Love! Such Caring! Such Generosity! Such Goddamn Chutzpah! Pretending to give anything, giving nothing and hitting other people with the bill for YOUR “warm fuzzy feeling”. Glenn Beck, Sarah Palin, Ollie North, y’all taking any notice? Especially you and the rest of the Fox News Pukes. You make YOUR ENTIRE FORTUNE spreading propaganda for the wars, but you want to shirk on paying taxes… instead investing it in your War Profiteering industries like the Oil Companies. You’re a bunch of nauseating lying SLUGS in dire need of a bag of salt. You feast on the blood of Soldiers and “enemy” Civilians alike, then take a tax break for making yourselves look pious and Patriotic about it.

Closer to home, Michelle Malkin, Doug Lamborn, “Gunny” Bob, YEAH, YOU!

More Cheney heart(less) Surgery… so remember the rule

Dance first, THEN piss…(mustn’t get our shoes all wet and stinky)

He hasn’t, alas, made the journey yet. He is however having more surgeries, mostly because he’s stupid and arrogant and won’t follow medical advice. Like not getting drunk while using his pacemaker.

It’s worth notice that he received care unavailable to any other American who, unlike him, hasn’t got a trillion dollars in stolen money stashed in his corporate coffers. Americans of his age and outrageously stupid health-maintenance habits. His money only borrowed extra time to add up more points against his Immortal Soul taking the old “up” elevator. People who have to depend on either Corporate Health “care” or Medicare/Medicaid/CHAMPVA/TriCare would be refused such treatment if they behave as stupidly as he does.

Or, and much more importantly, if they just don’t happen to be in a position of political power or extreme (stolen) wealth, thus the Corporate Medical Establishment doesn’t consider their lives to be worth saving. Something Mr Cheney “heart”ily endorses.

His lawyer-friend, the one from that infamous incident where they were both so drunk that Cheney couldn’t tell the difference between a 200 pound Corrupt Texas Lawyer and a 2 pound bird… (Cheney says “Duck!” and his accomplice jumps up and says “Where?”) might take the ferry-ride across Styx on the same trip. One can only hope, mostly because it would be amusing to think of Cheney trying to get his lawyer to plea-bargain for him.

My hope, in the off chance that there is no Hell awaiting him, is that he takes a few days to die. And in as much pain as any of the Torture Victims whose “enhanced interrogation” sessions he and Bush watched as porn.

Sarah Palin a rotten mother

She parades her youngest son around, the kid she gets subsidized health care for, unlike, say, kids with similar disabilities, born instead to poor parents , in states, unlike Alaska, without Socialized Medicine and without an annual check just for being a resident.
She uses him as a prop to push her agenda, actually the agenda of Corporations for whom she’s merely a SpokesWhore. Corporations which will refuse to allow such children to live. Much the way she, and others in her TeaBag Party and their Corporate sponsor the Republican Party, say they would have taken up a collection to pay the in perpetuity Medical Bills for Terri Schiavo. But, of course, deny life prolonging medical care for anybody Who Doesn’t Happen To Be A “Token” Handicapped For Their Agenda
Which is what the TeaBags have been screaming long and loud to keep as the Law of the Land for the past year.

Tea Party Agenda:

Disabled? F.O.A.D.
No insurance? F.O.A.D.
Have insurance but Insurance Corporate Death Panels decide not to cover you? F.O.A.D.

I know I’m not supposed to expose Republican and TeaBag hypocrisy without also attacking Democrats. Too bad. Want a pretense of Fair and Balanced, slide on over to the Fox News Website or some other Corporate Mouthpieces.

The Republican TeaBags have been out screaming that people like ME should just F.O.A.D., People like Martha, people like Tony, people like Miss Johnnie, and not a single one of the TeaBags is actually a Democrat. The D’s might have their unfair share of Hypocrites, but then, they’ve got people like ME as well. The Republicans and TeaBags can’t say that and don’t even want to say that.

The TeaBags stand around with guns loudly proclaiming that they have a legal Constitutional Right and duty to Kill people who are “enemies of the Constitution” and the “enemies of the Constitution” as defined by Rush Limbaugh and Glenn Beck and Sarah Palin, includes Anybody who speaks against the TeaBag agenda.

The only reason they haven’t shot or hanged more Americans, (and the Beck and Palin worship Cult of the Fox HAVE killed Americans in several high profile attacks, including at least two In CHURCHES and the hanging of Bill Sparkman in a remote cemetery, and the killings of the Flores family especially the 9 year old American CHILD) is because their Cowardice matches their Hypocrisy in intensity.

Oh, and they weren’t sincere in their offers to care for Terri Schiavo either. They lie so frequently, though, that some of them actually believe their own lies.

Obama breaks truth to widows: Miners died as Corporate Slaves, get used to it

Not really. He said they died in pursuit of a better life. But since the Coal Companies and other Corporate owners of West Virginia aren’t going to actually invest anything in developing some other way for the people who live there to survive, and the people have not nearly enough opportunity to build their own enterprises, it IS a cycle of corporate slavery.

The Horatio Alger and Ragged Dick rags-to-riches stories were Bullshit when they were first published, and still are today. The Mine Workers union song popularized by “Tennessee” Ernie Ford, 16 Tons, says it more realistically.

“you load 16 tons
what do ya get?
Another day older
and deeper in debt
St Peter don’cha call me
cause I can’t go
I owe my soul
to the Company Store.”

The same people who lobby hard against Unions and fair wages, lobby for “Tort Reform” meaning a Landlord’s Lien not only on your possessions, should you default on your lease, but a period of bond-service, debt slavery, should you default.

The Mining corporations, in particular, used this as a way of keeping the workers docile.

The Company Store, just that, the only way you could get groceries or clothing or any other necessities of life was to purchase them from a commissary owned by the Company. Your lodgings were also owned by the Company. A rigged system where you always owed the Boss for the privilege of working for him.

Paid less than you’re forced to spend to survive. Try to leave and you get a warrant for your arrest under the Fugitive Laws, have the equivalent of Dog the Bounty Hunter chasing you down, putting you into the County Prison to work out your debt. In a county that’s owned by, you guessed it, your Loving Employer.

America is sliding backward into that quagmire of Corporate Dictatorship. The saddest part, many of the miners and their families actually eat that crap up with a spoon, the Corporate Lies that they’re working for a better future and for their freedom, and that of their children.

It’s a shameful thing for ONE political party to pay homage to that Blatant Lie. For ALL of the three largest political parties in America, Democratic, Republican, and Tea Parties, to pander to that meaningless CRAP is beyond shameful.

Maybe he simply misspoke, and was off by one letter, they were working for a bItter life.

America is not a “white” nation

Well now… an apparently Southern person wrote in response to an article about the Tea-Baggers and Other Klan Affiliates espousing Hate Crimes against black American PEOPLE, under the banners of the Failed Confederate States, that “you are an Idiot” and saying something about the “palling around with terrorists” badly disproved Tea Party Rhetoric. And then saying that the Southern States will secede along with Alaska. And of course all Southerners are going to agree to this, Right? Allow me to remind you of a few things…

The South has changed quite a bit since you Racist Retards decided you were going to take your toys and leave, miffed because a Yankee from Illinois of Mixed Race (what, you didn’t hear that part in Texas History? Abraham Lincoln was from an ethnic group called Malargeons, and was often said to be Negro. Of course, in Modern Southern classrooms the Lies from the Last Secession movement about States Rights are more prevalent than saying it was about race) was Elected President and was going to attempt a major bit of Reform which put Human Rights above property “rights” in the case of the “right” to keep Human Beings as property. The secessionists won’t have the votes to do it. Same reason they didn’t have the votes to stop America from electing Barack Obama to be President. America isn’t a “white” nation and neither are any of the states.

What would you do, Secessionists, to force the Black and Hispanic AMERICANS in “your” states to either join you in secession or get out?

Would you get the White Sheets out of grandpa’s closet and ride out lynching anybody who didn’t go along with the idea? That’s what the Confederacy did the first time, and the only reason they could get it to work TEMPORARILY was the fact that the blacks were held in slavery and deliberately kept ignorant, not allowed to learn to so much as read on pain of beatings and death. They were also kept unarmed. Do you seriously believe that you’ll be able to peddle that same kind of shit today? Take all the Tea-Baggers in Texas and descend on ONE Black American enclave, maybe Polytechnic Heights or Stop Six in Ft Worth, maybe South Oak Cliff in Dallas or 5th Ward in Houston. Or the equally hated-by-the-Tea-Party-and-other-Klan-groups Hispanics, the ones who your Stupid Loudmouth Leaders Beck and Limbaugh were confidently predicting would vote against Barack Obama because the Fox News Retards calculated them to be every bit as stupidly racist as the Tea-Baggers. Go to Segundo Barrio in El Paso with that shit.

Tell them you’re taking over completely in Texas. See how long you would last. Try the same thing in Birmingham Alabama, see how far you get with that.

See, in order for your “we’re going to take all our toys and go home” snivelly little Tantrum to work, you would have to have unanimous support. You won’t get it.

Just like you didn’t “get” the idea that 70 MILLION Americans voted against your Racist “white is right” Platform in the last election.

Maybe you were counting on the Ignorance Factor, well, even with the deliberate sabotage of Public Schools in Texas and the rest of America ever since there WAS such an animal as Public Education, people aren’t as stupid and racist as you hoped in the last election, where once again I have to remind you 70 MILLION Americans rejected your Racist Platform. The Commonwealth of Virginia rejected your Racist Platform.

But you believe that somehow you’re going to unite all the people of the South and do it under the Confederate Hate Flag?

Sir or Madame, YOU truly are an idiot.

Tea-Party Skulks decide to ramp up their terrorism…

Only, like the jackals they truly are, they did drive-by windowbreakinsgs and split before anybody could fight them. Guess it’s a Republican thing, you know, institutionalized cowardice. Their Skulk “leaders” at DumFox Noose Nutwerx are “fighting a war against Liberals” the same way they “fought” in the VietNam War, which they universally supported, just, you know, not with their own personal presence.
Beck and Limbaugh and Malkin and O’Reilly, Ted “I shit my pants and didn’t shower for a month to play crazy in order to not go to the VietNam War I supported” Nugent, doing their Same Old Tired Ass ChickenHawk routine, urging OTHER PEOPLE to commit the crimes they’re just too yellow to commit themselves.

These “leaders” also tell their Demented Disciples that all you have to do is show a gun to a Liberal and he’ll fold up like a soft-shell taco and say “Oh, Please, Mr. Minuteman Coward, Sir, Please don’t shoot me!”

Even though they were proved wrong at the Unitarian Universalist Church in Knoxville TN… Adkisson is right now in protective custody, hiding behind several rows of bars and a phalanx of Tennessee cops while he shouts “Nigger nigger nigger” at fellow inmates… like the True Monkey in The Zoo that he is. That’s Republican “courage” in action. He picked a fight with a church where he thought everybody was helpless. Kind of like a 4th grade kid who tries to make a reputation beating up on Kindergarten students. Yep, them Republicans sho’ does love them some Baby-Killing. By the way, for those of our newer readers who were hiding under a rock for the past couple of years, two of the “Liberals he shot to death before being wrestled to the ground, one was a Retired Marine.. and both of them got between the muzzle of his Elmer Fudd pop-gun and the CHILDREN of the church who he was targeting.

“Be vewwy vewwy quiet— I’m hunting Wibewals! huhuhuhuhuhu!”

See, Oh Big Bwave “patwiiots”, the problem with your leaders’ plans is that exactly NONE of you Tee-Pottie freaks are man enough to do anything like that unless you catch somebody out alone, and you have several of your Big Bwave Patwiot Fwiends with you. And your Elmer Fudd guns. You’re just as yellow as your “leaders”.

Karl Rove, speaking of Killer Kowardice, actually wrote a book using the word “courage” as part of the title.

I used to wonder if all the Republicans are a bunch of chickenshit Retards. Now it’s been confirmed.

America Wins! Tea Party LOSES!

One of their congressional whiners, from Michigan:

“The American people know you can’t reduce health care costs by spending $1 trillion or raising taxes by more than one-half trillion dollars. The American people know that you cannot cut Medicare by over one-half trillion dollars without hurting seniors,” said Rep. Dave Camp, R-Mich.
(as though the lying hypocrite ever gave two shits about seniors or the deficit)
“And, the American people know that you can’t create an entirely new government entitlement program without exploding spending and the deficit.”
(unlike the current over ten trillion deficit with more to come from an “entitlement program” for the Oil and Coal corporations and the War Industry billioniares)

You see, the Daddy WarBucks DeathMongers and their partners in the Oil Industry, they’re entitled to take any oil resources in any country they want, tax free (on their part) and the American People are obligated not only to do their fighting for them, we have to pay for their Wars of Conquest as well.

As for their so-called concern for “Seniors” their party has sucked Medicare and Social Security funds dry to fund THEIR War. They’ve repeatedly robbed Social Security trust funds for the past three decades and campaigned not only against any increases in health care to the older Americans who rely on it, but against the very institution of Medicare in the first place. Rush Limbaugh vowed two weeks ago that he would leave the country if it passed… Wow, you think for once he’ll keep his word? Bye, Rush, nice seeing you(r back as you’re leaving) and don’t you worry none, if them thare Costa Rican Peasants ever rebel against you and your equally Fat Retarded Friends, you know you can always count on your Dittoheads to come and fight for you, just like you and your Fat-ass retarded brother did in Vietna… ooops… Never Mind. When left for the ChickenHawks to do anything like that, you’re screwed.

You know how the Tea-baggers claim to give 3/4 of a Deceased Rat’s Rectum about Seniors?

Turns out one of their controllers, the Bush Administration pricks who are angling to get back into full power, meaning, first place at the trough, have been issuing bonds against Social Security surplus funds to finance Bush’s (Cheney and Rove actually) Global War On The American Bank Account, without a squeak of pretended outrage from the Tea-Baggers. More proof that their agenda has more to do on the “Astroturf Roots” level with outrage that a Black man is President than anything substantial.
Tea Party “patriots”, are you listening? You’re being played like a finely tuned harmonica on so many levels by the Rich Bitches who will discard your stupid collective arse as quickly as they discarded the disabled and other poor and now, the Older PEOPLE you stupid bastards claim to care so much about.

While you’re out there with your signs tonight, in Colorado, in Washington, screaming about how those of us who aren’t Rich simply DESERVE to die, the Rich Bitch Corporations who are funding and organizing your “grass roots” movement are raping America one public trust at a time.

Congratulations, your Corporate Masters have bought you. And by extension hope to buy the rest of us as well, for the small price of Everything We and You actually had. That’s right, Stupid Tea Party, you’re selling yourself for worse than nothing, you’re actually PAYING for your chains of Slavery.

One photograph I saw showed a newborn baby with three heads.

That’s a quote from a BBC report on the ongoing, and growing, number of birth defects in kids in Fallujah.“They were well aware that what they said went against the government version, and we were told privately that the Iraqi authorities are anxious not to embarrass the Americans over the issue. There are no official figures for the incidence of birth defects in Falluja. The US military authorities are absolutely correct when they say they are not aware of any official reports indicating an increase in birth defects in Fallujah – no official reports exist

Gov Rick GoodHair issues first Texas posthumous pardon. Mighty white of him

To Tim Cole. Convicted of Rape, died in prison from an asthma attack in 1999… 13 years after being wrongfully convicted, and 4 years after a confession from the Real rapist cleared him. How very kind of Mr Perry to say “OOPS..!”
I haven’t looked into it but since Mr GoodHair was a prosecutor (small time thief and pig) before becoming the Big Time Thief he is today, he might have had a hand in convicting Mr Cole… and definitely had a hand in keeping him locked up in one of the Texas sweatboxes, where prisoners with Asthma are subjected to the combinations of dust, heat, and no access to their rescue inhalers.

Mr GoodHair said it was a gesture for the family. Nice. A better gesture would have been to improve conditions in the prisons, improve medical care both in and out of prisons, and stop being so quick to condemn people to long sentences on shaky evidence.

Mr Cole’s mother said he “always believed in the Justice System, even when the justice system didn’t believe in him.”

Wonderful place, Texas. They have people so brainwashed they’ll believe in the so-called “Justice” system even after 13 years of being shit upon by the rigged system.

Mr Perry is just one Evil Piggy face of that system. Now he’s going to reap political gain from “righting a wrong” that will never be righted. Even as he sends man after man after man to his death on even more specious and shaky evidence.

What a Pig. He’s a prime example of why nobody, especially Mr Cole, should ever put any faith in the “justice” system.

The system only works for the Rich and Powerful. Just like always.

More people who do not muchly good speak the English tongue…

John McCain on Press the Meat this morning, sponsored by a Wall Street Powerhouse, Edward Jones Investments. Lying his arse off about how he’s bipartisan on the Health Care bill when he joined every single one of his (R) Comrades in voting against it. Apparently in Renegade Republicanspeak, “Bipartisan” means the Democrats have to suck much Republican Ass.
Ran as a “Maverick” which doesn’t mean anything like “not one of the herd”, it means steers claimed by a notoriously lazy Texas free-range rancher named John Maverick. Who didn’t bother to brand or earmark any of his steers, just the lead cows. Any Steer or cow following them would be just a part of “His” herd. The Wall Street Bankers who sponsored today’s Lie-Fest, their advertisement “If you believe in the Renegade idea of face-to-face with your broker”

If you believe your Brokerage is “Renegade” and still deal with them, you really need to deal with the fact that they’re going to rob you blind given any chance.

McCain’s running mate was an idiot from Alaska who also didn’t speak English, and didn’t know the duties of the job, told a group of schoolkids that it was to “help the senate make laws”. Yeah, right.
People who don’t know the basis of American Law, the Constitution, shouldn’t presume to MAKE Law.
She also runs with a group of Straight Up Racist Pukes who insist that English be not only the official language of the United States (we don’t have an official language, by the way) but that it be the ONLY language spoken. They wish to bring the days back, when Immigrant kids, or Native American Kids, or Native-American-Kids-Whose-Names-And-Primary tongue are Spanish and whose families were not only here during the Spanish territorial days but Many Centuries Before an Italian Mapmaker who had never been to America, Amerigo Vespucci, put his name to two continents and a bunch of offshore islands (Actually the islands FIRST)… These kids, even in the 60s when I was first going to school, would be Punished for speaking their non-english languages on school grounds or even the school bus.
The more radical members of “English First” would have it that people not be allowed to speak their own languages even in their own homes. They say that not having English as your first tongue hinders your development in school. Where they get that tainted statistic is beyond my ken.
The largest population who don’t graduate High School and more importantly don’t graduate Primary School are people who don’t speak ANY language other than English, and that very poorly.

This kind of outright Jingoistic Stupid Racism would give that freak on the bus (and there’s always one at least) who demands that two Spanish speaking or Polish speaking or Navajo speaking kids (actually it’s a dialect of Athabascan, and a common second tongue to most of the tribes in the Southwest) “Talk English, you’re in America, Talk American”…

It would give those Freaks legal power to not only have you thrown off the bus but also arrested for “hindering public transportation”. Which is part of the so-called “Patriot” Act.

Which is another treaty (Constitution) breaking law the self-styled “Renegade” from Alaska and the “Maverick” from AZ support with all their Fascist Zeal.
Their supporters will no doubt insist that they’re not racists. They will at that point be once again LYING. It’s what they do the Very Best.

Maverick the Rancher at least wasn’t a rustler, so his Steers, (a bull with its Testicles removed at about the age of two weeks) were generally recognized as his.

You can’t even trust Goobers anymore

By “goobers” I mean Goober Peas. That staple of American Diet in more ways than you can possibly imagine unless you’re allergic to them, Once Again being recalled due to bacteria that exist naturally in the digestive tracts of Carnivores. In this case, like the LAST recall, which was only last year, about this time, it’s Salmonella.

How DOES a bacterium that would ordinarily be found in Dog Poo and in the contaminated meat from improperly slaughtered and mass-production butchered animals (chickens mostly) and from SlaughterFactory companies where the same machines and the same Almost-machine-people employed at the processing plants have to handle the pieces of dead chickens also have to handle the pieces of dead cows, pigs, (who are, like chickens, omnivorous) etc….
How would it get into VEGETABLE Kingdom products like spinach, tomatoes, peppers, Peanut Butter, peanut flour (that last is used in a ghastly huge list of products, I wouldn’t be much surprised to find it in Toothpaste next)?

Droppings from “Illegal Alien” migrant farm workers, as suggested in the spinach and tomato mayhem? Perhaps the droppings from Tent City but that’s another over-hyped non-story…

How about this, (which is far and away the most common scenario): Contaminated bins and contaminated machines and processing tables at the Mega Corporate Food Processing Centers?

And their delivery vehicles. And places like WalMart and McDonalds and those who follow their corporate model (more than half the Corporations is America) regarding people who have the misfortune of being employed by those Jerkoffs, and not getting paid or even in some cases Unpaid sick leave when they have infectious diseases.

The “Migrant Workers shitting in the fields” is easy to believe, (except it wasn’t the root cause or even a secondary, nor yet again a Tertiary cause) because it’s a backward admission from the Corporations that they still use the old Slave Plantation Model of “how to treat farm laborers”.

They treat ALL their workers like that. What’s distressing is that they treat the PEOPLE who handle food the exact same way. Like to eat at Mickey Dee, drink your favorite cup o’ joe at Starbucks? Remember that they FIRE employees who take more than 5 consecutive sick days. That their workweek is all seven days with shortened hours so the company doesn’t have to pay overtime.

Where you can get fired for actually working overtime, because the “experts” at Corporate Headquarters determined that you could have completed your Underpaid Tasks in the allotted time.
If you don’t take bathroom breaks or stuff like that.

Where if you catch something like Influenza, and you’re still contagious 6 days after the symptoms disappear.

Where they make boastful commercials like the Halls “Drill Sergeant” commercial, which they’ve re-introduced, where a Food Worker is encouraged to keep working despite having Respiratory Problems…
They’ve got one like that where a Rambo-Lookalike pops in to a different store.

Because “only a wussy wimp liberal would refrain from working around PEOPLE and/or their FOOD while packing a contagious ailment that might spread to the PEOPLE who buy the products at the stores and restaurants”.
