Kill the Poor, and other Republican Plans

Republicans cut programs for the working classes and cut taxes for the rich. Is this the kind of nation we want to live in?

How to fight the lie that Obama doesn’t deserve credit for bin Laden’s death.

How to fight the lie that Obama doesn’t deserve credit for bin Laden’s death.

I’m absolutely dismayed that many people hate our president so much that they feel it necessary to copy-and-paste a Facebook post which lies about Obama debating whether to pay the troops while trying to diminish the role our Commander in Chief played in the death of Osama bin Laden.

Osama Bin Laden: An Infidel Impersonating a Muslim

Osama bin Laden was a terrible person who did terrible things. His views do not represent the views of a majority of the Muslims in the world.

Donald Trump for President? FUGGETABOUTIT!!!

Donald Trump for President? FUGGETABOUTIT!!!

1st off, let me make abundantly clear that I like Donald Trump. I list the Apprentice (and Celebrity Apprentice) as one of my favorite “guilty pleasure” shows of all time. And despite everything else, I will, more than likely watch this season to it’s conclusion on May 22nd. And I would be tuning in whether or not this whole Presidential race hubub were going on. I personally won’t be tuning in for any kind of announcement about the GOP nomination, but rather to see if my early favorite, John Rich, will walk away with Trump’s prize.

We did not get Osama bin Laden because of Gitmo and waterboarding. or “Fight back against the ridiculous claims from the right wing”

We did not get Osama bin Laden because of Gitmo and waterboarding. or “Fight back against the ridiculous claims from the right wing”

I keep hearing from bitter Republicans that we got bin laden because of the information from Gitmo detainees. Well, I saw the CIA director under BUSH on CNN today, and he said no. It was from other CIA sites. I’ve also seen other counter-terrorism experts say that we got a lot of information from various different sources.

Why do many people think ‘birthers’ are motivated by racism?

Why do many people think ‘birthers’ are motivated by racism?

For the first time since I began writing, I’m finally writing about the birthers. I’ve largely avoided them because of just how completely nutty and racist their cause is. Their blatant conspiracy theory that President Obama is a secret muslim who was born in Kenya has been nothing more than a racist attempt to defraud him and invalidate his Presidency.

The Elephant In The Room On The Budget- Military Spending

The Elephant In The Room On The Budget- Military Spending

We are currently griping about the sheer size of our government’s budget, and the debt we have accrued over the years. Republicans complain about social programs, and want to cut them to make up the shortfall-when the real problem is, and has always been- The military spending.

Keep Your Government Hands Off My Medicare!

Keep Your Government Hands Off My Medicare!

Senior citizens, even those in the Tea Party, LOVE Medicare. But if Republicans have their way, senior citizens won’t have Medicare for much longer. Now that the GOP is in the hands of extremists, Republicans are taking aim at Medicare in an effort to shatter the middle class and senior citizens once and for all.

End Game for the Birthers

End Game for the Birthers

Ronald Reagan’s birth certificate was issued in 1991, but he died in 2004. Does that mean he was 13 when he died, or that Presidents sometimes need new copies of their birth certificates?

Overthrowing Democracy One City At A Time

Last week, Benton Harbor, Michigan was subjected to a hostile government takeover by a single individual. Just over a month after Republican Governor Rick Snyder signed legislation that gave broad new powers to emergency financial managers appointed by the state of Michigan to run struggling cities and schools and the ability to terminate union contracts, it has finally happened.

The Corporate Nanny State

The Corporate Nanny State

The cries of ‘End the nanny state!’ can be heard from yachts, to mansions, to airport bathrooms around America. Where did people develop, or should I say ‘invent’, this idea that we live in a ‘nanny state’?

The Tennessee Bubble: Gay Prohibition

The Tennessee Bubble: Gay Prohibition

By keeping children in that bubble you are creating a very volatile situation for very fragile lives. You are not only saying that being gay is not okay, but you are making it the law.

Treasonous Republican Sabotage ??

Treasonous Republican Sabotage ??

…It is well known that the Ryan Budget Proposal will have a real and negative affect in devastating the middle class, on whose backs the recovery is built and depends on.

Tea Party Lies about Raising the Debt Ceiling

Tea Party Lies about Raising the Debt Ceiling

The Tea Party confuse the debt ceiling with spending ‘on the Obama Agenda.’ The Tea Party implies that if the debt ceiling is not raised, then President Obama will not be able to spend any money on his agenda. The Tea Party ignores that most U.S. government spending is for programs mandated by law or for functions of the U.S. government that existed before Obama.
