Some sneaky people are circling the drain

And they want each and every one of us to go along with them.

After all the drama from the last two weeks, ARRA passed congress and will be signed by the President as early as tomorrow.

I have to admit, I think Chris Dodd is an ass for slipping in that pay cap for CEOs (and the next 20 highest paid employees) for TARP recipients. It's retroactive, too. It's not the caps I'm pissed about--it's how it was done in an underhanded, dirty way. I don't care what party you espouse, that's just shitty.

I hope now the press will focus on the meat of the bill instead of focusing EVERY broadcast on how Obama's bipartisanship has failed.


Obama didn't fail. The GOP did. Even after meetings and concessions for tax cuts, the GOP still flipped him the bird by voting nay--all but three of them.

Why isn't the press talking about their LACK of bipartisanship?

Some crazy whackadoos are still up in arms about Obama's citizenship. Get over it. Geesh. Here's an article that explains how the whole myth got started and how the lies that have sustained it are dangerous proof that people MUST back up their claims with valid sources-- especially on the internet. It's not a question of validity; it's become a question of ethics.

I have been remembering my feelings after the SCOTUS gave the 2000 election to Bush 43. Yeah, I was pissed, but I don't think I was radicalized by his appointment. Some people on the right are collectively losing their minds.

They are not used to being told no, or that they're wrong, or that they're NOT IN CHARGE anymore. They had eight years and we are where we are because of their so-called leadership.

Seriously, I am starting to think there are two different Americas.

In one, folks care about people, their jobs, their health, their equality, their education.

In the other, they care about power, being correct, and things.

People vs. things.

Kind of an easy choice, right?

Apparently not.

I am continuing to get insults of "elitist" when I correct someone's argument with stuff like, you know, facts. Really, how is "elitist" an argument? It's an opinion. Please see this post from a while ago. I am worn out by retards.

The GOP wants its sheeple poor and stupid and afraid. Those types are much easier to control. Those who don't question. Those who are afraid that the "white way of life" is ending. Those who see anyone who isn't like themselves as an enemy.

I've got news for them. This country isn't a white America. Nor is it a black, brown, pink or purple America.

It's America, retards. In all its glorious colors and diversity.

We are the great social experiment. And I for one am not going to let morons like Rush Limbaugh and Ann Coulter (two very white, very unhappy people) tell lies about our country and its people without calling them on it.

Rush actually had the cojones to tell his listeners the Dems were trying to pull one over on the American public.

Rush Limbaugh falsely claimed that Democrats:

"have reformatted the [economic recovery] bill -- they've made it a PDF file when they posted it. ... And, so, you can read every page, but you cannot keyword search it. It's not a text file as legislation normally is as posted on these public websites. They don't want anybody knowing what's in this."

In fact, as Adobe Systems notes of PDFs: "You can run a search using either the Search window or the Find toolbar. In either case, Reader searches the PDF body text, layers, form fields, and digital signatures."

Are these people really as stupid as they sound?

Yup, I am indeed starting to think they are.

And who says we don't need money for education in this country? The GOP: The Group Of Poop-for-brains.

Hope all are well this fine Sunday.

Ah, I just love these Sunday rants. : ) I couldn't agree more. All these rumors about the birth certificate are spread by a nut anyway. Too much!

If Republicans put half of their energy into doing good things for people, we would have a strong 2 party system.

Thanks for the link to the article about the email. It's kinda scary to know how easily this type of ting can spread and take a life of its own. For better or worse, the internet is now part of our political landscape. We have to educate ourselves on how to use it. Looks like we're going to have a steep learning curve.

Too bad Eric Swafford, Stacey Campfield, Glen Casada and Frank Niceley haven't developed the ability to discern fact from fiction...

Here's hoping that their constituents wake up and demand that they do something better with their time than attempt to discredit (and ultimately, overthrow [which is illegal]) the President of the United States.

Right Sidhe? One can only hope. There are many more important things going on.

I agree with everything you said. Well said. The Republicans are still trying to dumb down America, but there are a lot of smart people who see through their BS. I am really sick of these people who go on and on about their theory of Obama not being a citizen. They whine about no court being willing to hear the course and there is a's BS!

President Obama is one shrewd guy. These crooked lying Republicans are not going to be able to pull one over on him. As he said, he will not be a sap.

It's good to be back. I have gotten out of my funk and am back ready to fight.

The only things the Republicans want is for the people to stay stupid so that they can continue to lie to them and get away with it...

NOPE...not this time ass-hats...

Great post... love your rants

I too love your rants Skyewriter and agree with you as well. I so wish I could speak with the intelligence you do. You have a gift.
