   If you are a Liberal/Progressive/Democrat, you will absolutely love reading this posting.

   Anybody who pays even a minimum of attention to the political scene these days knows some of the things happening around them.

   To those of us watching, the most apparent thing is the GOP/Tea party in hyper desperation mode.

   The conservative movement has for many years now been quite comfortable representing the wants and desires of the corporations and the elite 1% in America, and quite comfortable accepting the cash they so generously supply to their political puppets.

   Now I'm not implying the left doesn't have it's share of corrupt political figures, of course it does, but there are dramatic differences between the two.

   First of all, the ones doing the corrupting are the ones with the most money, ie. Banks, Wall street, Big oil, etc., and the main interest they have is to keep government from regulating or overseeing them.

   The elite that own those corporations seem to believe that they are above the law, that they are somehow superior to the rest of us, and they should therefore be granted special treatment.

   Their behavior is nothing new, since the human species first began living together in large groups there have been those whose desire to control the lives of others drove them to incredible actions.

   The same holds true today, a small group of individuals feel it is their right to dictate how things should be, that they alone should make the rules.

   That being said, the two major political parties in America are the GOP, and the Democrats. The Democratic party has a platform of equality for all Americans, that we are our brothers keepers, that we are a country blessed with enough riches that nobody should live in poverty, or go hungry.

   The Democrats feel that those who have been the most successful among us, have done so because of the efforts and contributions from all of us, and therefore should share more with the rest.

   The GOP on the other hand aspire more to an attitude of , "I got mine, go get your own".

   They believe that they alone were responsible for their success, and that sharing any of it is unfair.

   With that in mind, the GOP is naturally going to appeal the most to those that don't like the idea of having to share with the rest, and thus, the GOP receives a far greater share of contributions from the elite and corporate world.

    Somehow the GOP/Tea party has convinced many Americans to vote against their own self interests, and that the Democrats are trying to destroy their way of living.

   Like I said, the conservatives are in a desperate mode right now, every time they try indicting our President for wrongdoing, it has come 360 degrees to bite them on the ass.

   They swore to make him a failed President, and for 5 years they have done every possible thing they could think of to make that happen, but they only ended up shooting themselves in the foot every single time.

   After revealing to the entire world just how petty and spiteful the GOP is by shutting down the government and holding America hostage, they have now bet the house on the ACA failing .

   But guess what GOP, even with all your tries at sabotaging the ACA, it is now hitting its stride, the web site is working great, people are signing up in huge numbers, the success stories are rolling in, and now you have nothing.

   I normally feel sorry for the loser, at least a little bit, but after all the crap you did in your evil plan to win back voters, I have nothing but contempt for your nasty party.

   I will laugh at your misery, I will toast your demise, there isn't anything bad that can happen to you that I won't enjoy observing.

   Your despicable group of traitors have proven over and over that the only thing you give a damn about is money and power, well, enjoy what you have now, because in 2014 most of your ugly party will be hitting the bricks, and in 2016, the left should be controlling both houses, and the Presidency.

   Even with your gerry mandered districts, your voter suppression, your ballot rigging, your fear mongering, your false accusations, you will not win, you have shown your true nature, that of a morally corrupt group of self centered bigots who don't give a damn about anybody but themselves.

   So keep this in mind, the laughter and cheering you hear every time your party sinks further into oblivion, will be coming from the people who do represent the true America, the Democratic liberal progressives.

   It is finally over, the war on Christmas has been won by the liberal Democratic party.

   Reports are coming in stating that seal team 6 has killed Santa Claus, 5 of the reindeer, and a number of elves.

   It is not known at this time if Rudolph is one of those reported killed, however we can confirm that Donner, Prancer, and Blitzen are among the casualties.

   Experts in the study of Christmas warfare say that this last battle will most likely end all hostilities. 

   Professor Sarah Palin Phd. called it the worst Christmas carnage she has ever seen, she was quoted as saying, "Well gosh, ya know that guy who isn't white over there in Washington DC just creamed poor ol Santa".

   Since this war began the day after Thanksgiving the fighting has been fierce, with both sides taking heavy casualties.

   President Obama was quoted as saying, "We would have wrapped this up in 4 days if those damn Canadians didn't come to Santa's aid".

   With the limited nuclear strike on both of Canada's major cities,  the Canadians withdrew their support for Santa saying, "Hey, sorry there Mr. Kringle, but you're on your own Ay".

   With the opposition now down to only elves, reindeer, and and a group of Tea party fringe flyers, the President decided to dispatch the infamous seal team 6 to kill the leader of the Christmas terrorist organization.

   Apparently Mrs. Claus was taken into custody and immediately sent to Saudi Arabia for interrogation , asked why she was sent there a top intelligence official stated, "They just do it better there".

   Rumors are that Frosty the snowman was also taken into custody, but we have been unable to confirm that information.

   Witnesses report that the entire North pole region has been leveled, and that Santas workshop was completely destroyed, leaving any remaining Santa helpers without a base to attack from.

 As we all now know, this war was deemed a necessary pre-emptive action due to the ability of Santa to see and know when everybody on the planet was sleeping, awake, or being good or bad, President Obama said, "After discussing it with the NSA, it was determined that it was in our national interest  to make sure we were the only ones that are capable of doing that".

   With the war on Christmas now over, officials at the NSA say they can now devote their attention to the ongoing war on peoples religion.

   I, like a great deal of Americans, consider myself a follower of Christs teachings, thus, a Christian.

   However, just as there are a variety of different cultures and ethnic backgrounds in the U.S., there are also a variety of Christianities that abound here.

   Some people look at how the Muslim faith is divided between the Shiite and the Sunni sects, and are confounded that two groups who proclaim the same faith can be so hostile to each other.

   Well, they've got nothing on us, there are so many different angles on what a Christian is supposed to be, that it makes your head spin.

   Now the days of killing each other over our differences are mostly behind us, but there remains some ugly reminders of just why we factionalized in the first place.

   Since Christianity began there have been those that devined different interpretations of Christs words, and then acted on those interpretations.

   Most notably, the Roman Catholics, the Protestants, the Mormons, Jehovahs witnesses, etc., and the offshoots of them, all that feel that they are the ones that are right.

   Now days these groups tolerate each other, and generally respect the others right to believe what they want, but there is a group that exists that is giving a bad name to the term "Christian".

   Mostly they call themselves "fundamentalists".

   Now this group is nothing new, they have been around for awhile, and the term actually describes a broad number of believers. 

   But the ones that are the problem, are those that like to mix large amounts of politics with their faith

   The most obvious of these lately are the members calling themselves the Tea party. They are mostly southern whites whose main motives seem to be in destroying the U.S. government.

   Unable to garner any real political power, they instead choose to attempt dismantling the current government structure.

   Although they loudly demand freedom, that would be the last thing we would have if these bigots were in charge.

   Instead we would have a small group that would dictate every step of our lives, they love to tell people what they can and can't do, in Gods name of course.

   This band of zealots criticize sharia law, and the Taliban, when in reality, they are just like them, ready to control your life as they see fit.

   The fact that the demographics of America are rapidly changing in favor of non white people is scaring the hell out of this group, probably because they fear that they will get treated as poorly as they treated others.

   Regardless of the desperate and destructive acts they partake in, this group will never usurp power from the majority of Americans, those that believe we are all in this together, and that when we take care of one another, we are making America a much better nation, a nation that cares for all of its citizens, not just a chosen few.

   My guess is that the very narrow and self serving way these fundamentalists pick and choose the parts of the bible that best serves their needs would be looked upon rather poorly by Christ, so I wish they would call themselves something else, because they are giving the term "Christian", a bad name.

You love investigations, unless they're aimed at you
You also love to slander, cause that's just what you do
The truth you have no use for, cause it doesn't serve your needs
In fulfilling your agenda,  of doing dirty deeds
You're a liar and a phony, a con man and a thief 
The levels that you'll sink to, are way beyond belief 
You're a car thief and a tax cheat, a whiz at setting fires
And getting rich from politics, is one of your desires
How you got elected, we may never know
But the people who elected you, must be mentally quite slow
Integrity evades you, you don't deserve respect
You're like a toxic virus, striving to infect
Thank God you're term is ending, in just a little while
Because thinking of you leaving, gives us a great big smile

You stupid ignoramus, you're as crazy as a loon
I wouldn't be surprised, to catch you howling at the moon
Your theories of conspiracies, are well known far and wide
That everyone is after us, to cause us genocide
You're right at home at Fox, who pretend to tell the news
But all we get from both of you, are the lies that fill your views
The things you pass off as the truth, should make you quite ashamed
For all the trouble in the world, you say Obama should be blamed
You pander to the nut jobs, to make yourself quite rich
But regardless of your money, you're still Murdochs little bitch
Perhaps you're not so crazy, perhaps there's something more
Perhaps you're just like Rush and Sean, another money whore

To administer justice, blindly and fair
Is the reason the 9 of you, sit in that chair
Non partisan actions, is what you espouse
But your actions of late, show there is trouble in your house
You've allowed the elite, to buy all our reps
To pile up their bribes, on congresses steps
You've given your blessings, for every red state
To stifle the vote, of those that they hate
Though 9 of you make up, what we call a bench
There are 5 there among you, who give off a stench
Their conservative bias, is not hard to detect
And the elite that control them, are all they respect
With a third of the power, over our laws
These 5 pawns of money, should give us great pause
They've proved their allegiance, to the GOP name
They disrespect all the people, as though playing a game
They don't want to change, and we cannot teach them
So might I suggest, that we just impeach them

Poor Sarah Palin, born without a brain
Any intelligent thought, she fails to maintain
All the words she utters, to show that she is bright
Only go to show one thing, that her thinking isn't right
We question her integrity,  she has honor not a bit
She reminds us of a dung heap,  a giant pile of shit
She is stupid as a scarecrow, dumber than a rock
As clueless as a cloud, as ignorant as a sock
And yet she babbles on, torturing all of us
When all we want to see, is her being hit by a bus
Oh Sarah Sarah Sarah, Please listen to our cry
Go back to the hole you came from, then curl up and die

What can I say, about the white whale Rush
Whose pure evil words, we can't seem to hush
He's a bigoted racist, without honor or style
As a mound of cow dung, he makes a large pile
He lacks all integrity, he possesses no class
And it's easy to see, he talks out his ass
Though he claims he's a patriot, we know it's a lie
Because a patriot has honor, and he ain't that guy
He's a monger of fear, a seller of hate
To wreak havoc among us, for this he can't wait
His masters are rich, the corporate elite
he bows in their presence, and kisses their feet
He's made lots of money, spewing hate lies and fear
And since money is his god, he holds it quite dear
He's a traitor a criminal,  a racist and bigot
His mouth spews out evil, like a fully open spigot
For me there's one answer, that I'd love to see
The white whale Rush, at the bottom of the sea

 Dear GOP/Teabagger,

    I am writing this letter for one special reason. That reason is so that I don't have to deal with your continued whining to "show you the facts" when all I ever do is to show you them. At which point you simply choose to ignore them.

   You seem to be master at the art of self imposed  ignorance. Your ability to deny truth and facts is nothing short of amazing. 

   The way you utter out lies and disinformation you've been spoon fed from Fox news and your less than honorable party spokespeople is very impressive.

   Whether you do this because your bigotry forces you to or you're so mentally challenged that you'll believe anything someone tells you, or you just like being somebodies pawn, I don't really know. But I also really don't give a rats ass.

   If at this point in time you refuse to see what the GOP/Tea party is doing to this nation in your name then you never will. And I thus have no reason to try convincing you of the truth.

   The fact that you hold fast to a party that has been very open about its desire to cause division and chaos in America whether by hook or by crook proves that your devotion to the party line goes way beyond any devotion you have for America.

   I have posted already that the tipping point has been passed. The ACA has become a booming success in spite of the conservative movements numerous attempts to sabotage it. And the GOP has proven to all of America just how petty and dishonest it really is.

   And to the chagrin of the GOP/Tea party the President will once again be seen as the victor for the American people. While the conservatives will continue to be viewed as nothing but worthless do nothing troublemakers whose fear mongering and lies are the trademarks of their existence.

   So, as I have said before, I'm not at all worried about the conservative agenda. Their dismal future is already cast in stone. I will simply sit back have a drink and laugh at the self imposed destruction of the GOP/Tea party.

   And when you ask me for the facts that you will quickly ignore I will instead repost this letter to you. Just so that you understand that I'm not ignoring you. It's just that you aren't worth the time I'd be wasting.

   As you, I, and most all left leaning political folks know all too well, our fellow Americans who lean to the right possess a host of serious drawbacks that we find not only reprehensible, but also boggle our senses as to how they can talk themselves into not only accepting them as true, but of staunchly being in defense of them.

   It amazes me that without fail, every time I fight a battle of words and ideas with a conservative, be they GOP, Tea, or Libertarian party, it feels to me as to what it must be like to try catching a greased hog.

   Just as you corner them with logic, and grab hold of them with facts and truth, they simply grab hold of another absurd talking point they've been fed, and slip away from the issue at hand.

   After attempting to force reason and sanity upon the self induced ignorance they cling to, most of us on the left realize that those we are trying to expose to the truth aren't all single digit IQ lifeforms, but are just stubborn hard heads that either can't, or won't change their way of thinking.

   Whether from racial bigotry, identity insecurity, or ingrained tradition, those that hold fast to the lies and propaganda they get fed from Fox and their less than honorable elected reps. do exhibit one thing the left could employ more of, Dedication.

   For all their faults and weaknesses, the hard line right wingers do have dedication and commitment. Even though it is ill thought out, it still remains a positive virtue.

   These virtues do posses an inherent problem to the left leaning however, just the nature of being a liberal/progressive causes us to always examine and question things we are being told. To not just take the word of others as to the validity and honesty of a particular issue or event.

   We approach things pragmatically and require proof of their integrity and accuracy before assigning them our support.

   These are certainly critical steps in keeping our platform free from mindless obedience, but when we do commit to a position, we need to see it through to the end.

   For 6 years now the President we elected twice, Barrack Obama, has done amazing things in the recovery of America, and he has done it fighting more political opposition than any President in American history.

   As our President strives to improve the lives of EVERY American, he faces unending negative forces from the right. Forces whose only intent is to somehow defeat and dishonor him and any sort of legacy he might leave.

   These negative forces the GOP/Tea Party invoke are done so at the cost of whatever they deem needed. And if this country needs to self destruct to accomplish their agenda, so be it, they are more than willing to let America burn to the ground.

   And although the idea of giving them all their own section of land with which to establish their own miserable third world nation is extremely appealing, we are unfortunately, stuck with them.

   And so, that being the case,  we on the left must insure that America remains a country that is worth living in.

   To accomplish this task, we don't need to sink to the level of dirty tricks, lies, and voter suppression that the right loves to employ. After all we have the high ground by espousing equality for all, fairness for all, and acceptance of all.

   But we all need to commit ourselves to the cause. The ACA has now become a proven success story. Millions of Americans now have affordable healthcare. Something the GOP/Tea Party were counting on failing.

The unemployment rate is under 6%.

   President Obama has proven over and over to be a man of integrity, honor, and wisdom. Which is why the fear mongering haters of the right have not been able to make even one of their continuing barrage of false accusations stick, because they are all lies and distorted half truths. Just like most of the things the GOP/Tea Party says.

   If we all vote in the 2014 elections then we will keep the senate and maybe take back the house.

   So stand tall, don't fall victim to the ever increasing desperate lies the right spews out. Have faith that our President has our backs and that in the end we will be the victors, and the America we love will be purged of those that wish it ill.

As the ones we cherish most, gather on this day
We go to every person, and listen to what they say
Each one a little different, but all conceived in love
We recognize our blessings, then thank God above
We listen to the children, as their faces get deep red
And joyously applaud, at every word they've said
We open up our hearts, and shed some loving tears
A tradition we have done, for many, many years
With that said I'll open, and believe me it's all true 
These feelings of my heart, I 'll put in words for you
My nephews and my nieces, I want you all to know
Have my undying love, and you know this to be so
My sister and my brothers, of whom I am so fond
I give love and devotion, with an everlasting bond
I am blessed with 3 fine sons, who I love and adore 
And the beautiful granchildren, I'm so thankful for
I have thanks for many things and what I say is true 
That the thing that I'm most grateful for, is every one of you

   If you think that you have heard the GOP/Tea party bitching before, just watch them now.

   The decision by Harry Reid  to change the way things get done in the Senate is going to make the conservatives go ape sh*#.

   After putting up with the outrageous conduct of the minority in the Senate, and having to deal with their fillibustering agenda on every single issue, Harry Reid has finally done something he had been threatening to do if the conservatives continued to obstruct things,  he changed the rules so that a simple majority vote was all that was needed to approve Presidential nominees.

   Of course the GOP doesn't like this new rule at all because it is their main tool in their obstruction  agenda, their only reason for being there.

   For 5 long years Reid has put up with the GOP abuse of the fillibuster, and now that they have pushed their abuse too far, the Senate speaker has finally done what he told them he would do.

   Kudos Harry Reid, you did the right thing, the GOP has blocked so much progress that could have been accomplished, that they more than deserved a dressing down, and you gave them one.

   The GOP/Tea party have been acting like a child with a squirt gun, you tell them to stop squirting the dog with it, yet they continue on relentlessly in their abuse of the beast, finally, the only thing you can do is to take the squirt gun away.

   So thank you Harry Reid, you did the right thing, now we will see some progress being achieved, now that the GOP has been properly disciplined.

   Though not much in the press lately, the tar sands issue is still a hotbed of debate, let me explain why.

   Tar sands oil is located in Canada, it is a huge supply of oil, but it is also some of the dirtiest and most difficult to refine oil there is.

   The owners of that oil wish to build a pipeline from Canada, all the way through the United States, down to the Gulf of Mexico.

   They want this for two reasons, one is that they need the refineries to process that oil, and two, they need the ports located there to ship the refined oil overseas.

   The following are the selling points that the GOP give for allowing the pipeline to go through.

1. It would create thousands of jobs for Americans.

2. It would make America less energy dependent on other nations.

   Here are the reasons given for opposing the build.

1. Any jobs created by the pipeline build would be temporary for the most part, when the build was complete only a handful of jobs would remain.

2. The Tar sand oil is very dirty, and difficult to refine, aside from the excess pollution it would create to refine it, if a spill from a ruptured line would occur, (which it has already in some places) then the mess is far worse than regular oil spills, and much more toxic.

3. All of the refined oil would be sold overseas, not in the U.S., so it would not reduce Americas energy needs a bit.

4. The ability of the pipeline would allow current sellers of Canadian oil to jack up prices they charge the U.S., estimates are that we would experience a 40 cent a gallon increase in gasoline prices here.

   The bottom line is that not only would we not get long term jobs for Americans, but that we would be putting our environment at risk, and paying more at the pump.

   So why does the GOP push for the pipeline? 

   Why does the GOP do anything,  it's because the owners of that oil are names that are all too familiar to those of us paying attention, one of the biggest being Koch industries.

   And as the bought and paid for lap dog of the elite corporate 1%, the GOP is only doing what it was told to do, to get the pipeline approved at any cost.

   So although the issue isn't prominent in the current news cycle, it will not go away, not when there are billions of dollars that the rich can exploit at our expense.

VINDICATION IS HERE or (goodbye tea party)

   Can you feel it? That certain uneasy feeling that you are about to be forced to eat your own words, to have to admit that everything you've been spewing out of your mouth is nothing but bullshit. That you have once again been played the fool by your own party? You know, the party that told you to say that the ACA would fail miserably.

    I'm just kidding of course, conservatives never admit they were wrong, hell, if they did, then that's all they would be doing, no, they just move on to something else to bitch and whine about, as long as that doesn't get anything accomplished that is.

    With current news reports of insurance company scams nationwide being the overwhelming cause of people getting their policies cancelled, and supposed dramatic rate increases, my guess is that the conservatives will need to find new bitching points. And with the ever advancing ease that people are able to compare their options, they are being amazed at how much less they are going to have to pay for health insurance that actually has some quality to it, not the crap they were being sold before.

   With every passing day the success stories of Obamacare keep growing exponentially, and just knowing that the conservatives are cursing and grinding their teeth over it gives me more pleasure than I can convey.

    As I have said before, the point of no return has been passed, the GOP/Tea party are a wreck, maybe a train wreck, hahahahahaha.... Anyway, as I was saying, the GOP/Tea party bet the farm, and lost, every election from now through 2016 will be an exercise in failure and humiliation for them, and though I would normally try to empathize and give some type of comfort to the losing side, to this bunch I say, "good, you got what you deserved, you self righteous, self centered ignorant bigots".

    And just so you know, in your honor, I will whistle a chorus of Dixie every time I think of your pathetic asses.

   What the Hell is going on here?

   Why are people saying President Obama lied?

   Why are people getting their health insurance policies cancelled?

   Why are new policy prices going up so much?

   These 3 issues are the current ammunition that the GOP/Tea party are using in their failing war to sway American voters to their side, and as is the standard practice of  the Conservative movement, they are twisting facts, cherry picking statements, and just plain lying to get their agenda fulfilled.

   Lets address these 3 issues individually, first, why are people saying President Obama lied?

   1. The GOP/Tea party reps. are saying that the President lied about peoples ability to keep the policies they currently had (prior to the ACA mandate). 

   The truth: All insurance policies that were in effect at the time were grandfathered in, regardless of benefits, those policies were given a pass that allowed them to continue being in force, therefore the only ones able to change that status would be the insured, or the insurance company, not the President, or anyone else.

   The insurance companies themselves opted to cancel those policies because the vast majority of them were garbage coverage. They knew that in an open market nobody would buy them, therefore, they took advantage of the timing, and sent out the cancellation notices, which brings us to the second question, why are people getting their policies cancelled?

   2. As previously stated, the insurance companies knew that they were about to have many of their current policy holders given the opportunity to shop for health care coverage elsewhere, and that the policies they currently were selling them would be abandoned en masse' . The companies decided to cancel existing policies prior to the ACA opening up, so that they could sell those same customers policies that met the ACA guidelines before the customers could have a chance to compare prices and coverage, which brings us to number 3, why are prices going up so much?

   3. The fervor over rate increases is due to the fact that the insurance companies are trying very hard to get the customers they just cancelled into purchasing new plans BEFORE they have a chance to see other options available to them, because then they make more money.

   If you haven't already figured it out, I'll tell you, the insurance industry sells an intangible product, a product that costs them nothing to produce, no buying of raw material, no manufacturing plant, just a piece of paper with a promise to pay certain costs if you should experience some sort of calamity.

   As such, the people who decide what that promise will cover, and how much you will have to pay for that promise, varies a great deal.

   Over 85% of those with health insurance have it through their employer, and those employers have people that negotiate prices and policy limits with the insurers, thereby getting the best rates and best coverage possible.

   However there are many who must buy their insurance individually, and up to this point, those people were unable to shop for the best deals, and many of them had to settle for expensive policies that covered very little.

   Those policies were very profitable for the insurance companies however, because the insurers could pick and choose who they would insure, if you were older, you paid a lot, if that is, you could get covered at all, if you had a pre existing condition, forget it, they didn't want you.

   Not only did they rob people blind with the premiums, they also sold them policies that were void of any real coverage, or had lifetime caps that were low enough to still bankrupt them with a major medical emergency.

   The ACA levels the playing field, it allows all Americans the opportunity to buy health insurance at a reasonable price, at the same time, it forces the insurance companies to accept clients with pre existing conditions, or older people who can't get healthcare coverage otherwise.

   It also removes lifetime limits of benefits, so that if you get sick, you won't have to go bankrupt to pay for your medical costs.

   And the big kicker is, the insurance companies are only allowed to keep a certain percentage of premiums paid as profit, the rest must either go toward actual benefits paid, or refunded to the policy holders.

   All these things accomplish two main goals.

   1. They allow all Americans to get proper healthcare.
   2. They address the problem of skyrocketting healthcare costs.

   But they do this at the cost of insurance companies profits, which by the way, are astoundingly large, just look at how many tv commercials are for insurance, a lot.

   This is why the ACA has faced so much opposition, money, money that the insurers want to keep. That is why they have enlisted the GOP to try anything possible to defeat the ACA.

   The GOP is screaming about people getting their policies cancelled, and their rates going up, but in reality, those people have not yet had the opportunity to go to the web site and see what else is available to them, and if they qualify for any of the subsidies offered.

   I would not be at all surprised to find out that the GOP has been attacking the ACA web site in order to keep it from functioning properly, they are pretty desperate these days.

   It is being revealed more and more that insurers like Humana, and Blue cross have sent letters to people telling them that their cancelled policies will be automatically switched to updated policies, with a big premium increase, even though if those same people compare their options, they find that they can get better coverage for less money, and usually qualify for a subsidy.

   That gives big incentives for the insurance industry to keep the web site down.

   Here is the bottom line, the ACA is going to be successful, the web site will become operable, people will find the new healthcare system pleasing, insurance company bigwigs will get a couple less 0's on their bonuses, and the GOP will have once again been exposed as the party of the elite 1%, the corrupt greedy unholy entity that it is.

    If there still remains anybody who thinks that the GOP/Tea party scandal search teams will somehow bring about the demise of either the ACA, or the President himself, do yourself a big, big favor, stop listening to those who would wish it possible, it isn't.

    The fear mongering, lie spreading, truth twisters known as the GOP/Tea party have been trying to nail President Obama on anything and everything since before he even took office, and they have yet to prove any wrongdoing on his part, but not for lack of trying, just for lack of culpability.

    The GOP/Tea party have shown everybody in the USA what they represent, a group of narrow minded bigots whose self imposed ignorance figures in perfectly with the way they would like to run this country, by forcing their so called morals and beliefs down the throats of every person in America.

    After being exposed as the American taliban that they are, the Tea party has even resorted to villifying those in their party who don't agree with their treason, who don't want the total destruction of the government, who don't fall in line like good little Nazi's.

    The GOP/Tea party has lost most of its support from businesses that now look to the more moderate Democratic party, this will continue because the far right will not stop its insane behavior until it is dead and buried, which it is fast approaching.

    So don't be upset when you see inflammatory articles touting Presidential scandal, that's just the death throes you're hearing from a small contingent of misguided racists, bigots, and ignorant idiots who are grasping at imaginary straws.

    The ACA (Obamacare) will become an overwhelming success, tens of millions of Americans will get healthcare for the first time, many more millions will see their insurance premiums reduced, at the same time that their coverage improves, and all the lies and scare tactics that the GOP/Tea party have been spreading will be exposed as the fearmongering propaganda that it is.

    Oh, and one more thing we'll see is the vast reduction of outrageous profiteering that the insurance industry, drug companies, and others have been strangling this nation with for decades. BTW, if you haven't figured it out by now, that is exactly why the ACA has been fought against so vehemently.

    So as I have said before, relax, sit back and watch the idiots run and scream in their futile attempt to stop the inevitable, it is very entertaining, and a well deserved end to those unpatriotic douchebags that would let America burn to the ground.

   When emotion rules your every thought, logic has a way of  disappearing completely, thus leading you to irrational and often mistaken conclusions.

   In the accepted method of thinking properly, one should gather all criteria available on the subject they are pondering, investigate all viewpoints on said subject, study the data available as well as any historical significance that subject might have had, and only then, they should form an opinion, one that takes all things into consideration, and is brought forth in as honest a manner as possible.

   This is not being done by GOP/Tea party voters.

   If the conservative voters were actually trying to find out the truth about what they are being told, then they could easily check the facts for their validity, but they are not doing so.

   The proof lies in the continued support given to the outrageous actions and dishonest statements that party reps. such as Ted Cruz and his gang of anti American traitors, support that encourages their destructive behavior.

   If the average conservative invested a little time and effort into the search for the truth, then they would not only reject the current GOP/Tea party actions, they would fight against what they're doing to America.

   To conservatives I ask, turn off Fox news, don't listen to Limbaugh, Oreilly, Hannity, or the others, turn on PBS, go on your computer and search out non biased sites, non partisan news pages.

   After you've made a legitimate effort, sit back and relax, then look at all the facts logically, try to be pragmatic, because when you look at the facts without spin on them, it should reveal a great deal, and it will probably surprise you, try it, you've got nothing to lose.

   In an incredible news story it has been revealed that Ted Cruz has actually been working for the Democratic party for the past year.

   In an exclusive Fox news report, Fox has stated that hard evidence exists that prove Ted Cruz has been a covert agent of the  opposition since last July, and that he was key in enlisting other Tea party Republicans to turn traitor to their party.

   Although they don't yet have the evidence, it has been rumored that Sarah Palin, Michele Bachmann John Boehner, and others have also been hired as Democratic plants within the framework of the Tea party and the GOP.

   In their report Fox news has claimed that it has in its possession video secretly taken showing Cruz accepting large sums of cash from vice President Joe Biden while the two of them were having breakfast at a downtown Dennys restaurant.

   When questioned about the alleged treachery, Sen. Cruz replied "Hey, Joe was just paying me for a bet he lost".

   When Fox reporters informed him that they also had audio recordings  of him detailing how he was going to destroy the GOP from within, Sen. Cruz just ran away yelling "Benghazi, Benghazi".

   We will bring you more on this story as it breaks.

   The recent actions of the GOP/Tea party have made it easier than ever to determine which of the two types of conservative you are.

   Of course when I say recent I mean the previous 5 years with an emphasis on the last 1 or 2.

   There are only two choices for you to pick from. Because if you still support the GOP/Tea party and its representatives after they have overwhelmingly proven just how diabolical and unpatriotic they are, how willingly they will throw this nation under the bus, how casually they will destroy the economy, and how unapologetically they will lie, deceive, and spread false rumors while subverting any and all election processes America was founded upon, then you MUST be one of the following:

   A: Ignorant
   If you are so blind deaf and dumb as to not have witnessed the incredibly obvious outrageous acts that the GOP/Tea party have attempted since 2009 and especially in 2013 then you have no place in voicing an opinion regarding ANY political issue. 

   Your uninformed and intelligence vacant position is not only unproductive and non helpful it is  very detrimental in any progress that this country might actually attain.  You should either get informed or just S.T.F.U.

   B. Criminal
   If you have actually been paying attention to the GOP/Tea party behavior I have listed above, and yet you continue to support them and their tactics then that means that you agree with them that "the ends justify the means".

   In the fulfillment of their treasonous agenda all bets are off. Any methods used whether legitimate or not are fair game. Regardless of how many Americans suffer from it's effects.

   Not only is that type of behavior anti-American, anti-democracy,and morally reprehensible it is also treasonous. Which makes it not only disgusting but also makes it illegal.

   If you vote for and support those who would take a solemn oath to preserve, protect, and defend this nation against all enemies foreign or domestic and those that you voted for were openly breaking those vows and yet you still support them that would be called criminal facilitation. And that would render you the same as them. A Criminal.

   So you see your choices are conveniently few. Are you an ignorant conservative or a criminal conservative?

   OK, I'll probably take a lot of heat for this one, but W.T.F., that never stopped me before,

   I have been criticized more than usual lately by mostly Libertarians, they say things like,"Obama is forcing healthcare on this country", and, "Obama wants to financially ruin America", and, "Both party's are only a smokescreen to hide what's really going on".

   These are but a few of the responses I receive (unrequested) when I present any positive news of our Presidents actions, or negative news of the GOP/Tea party,

   The Libertarian ideal is indeed a very enticing scenario, minimal government intrusion, freedom from societal limitations, a true Utopia, but just like Utopia, it is unrealistic, and no matter how hard we close our eyes, or how many times we click our heels together, it just would not work.

   It is true that we have had a few Libertarians as President in the past, but that was over 150 years ago, in an era that was totally different from today.

   The complexity and massive intricacies of modern society make the idea of the "every man for himself" philosophy, and the "you do your thing and I'll do mine" mantra an absurd pipedream.

   Yes the idea of pure freedom is appealing,and yes the thought of everybody seeing to each others needs is a pleasant thing, but we live in a world of fellow human beings, and one thing about human beings is, we are a selfish species, we will look out for numero uno , and we will reach out to help others in varying degrees, but 99 times out of 100, that will happen only after our own needs and wants are satisfied.

   I am not condemning humanity for that, far from it, it's survival of the fittest and all that stuff, and I know there are people who do truly care about the well being of their fellow humans, but to count on every person in this nation to "do the right thing", is about as far fetched as you can get.

   And no matter how pleasant a place America would be in the Libertarian world, it just isn't going to happen, and that forces us to deal with the realities of today, and to accept them as they are, or to change them in a way that has some chance of being successful, not by pretending that somehow we can turn the clock back and return to an era long since past. 

   If it were a matter of the balance of power remaining static, then fine, chase your pipedream, I hope you catch it, but unfortunately, that is far from what's happening today.

   There exists a party that is under the control of the elite 1% of this nation, and in that party lies a sub party that acts as a force bent on bringing our nation to its knees.

   Those would be respectively, the GOP, and the Tea party.  The GOP partnered up with the Tea party for two reasons, they needed to expand their ever shrinking base of supporters, but mostly, they are both funded by the elite people and corps. in America, and have a similar agenda.

   As recently witnessed, the Tea party is an out of control group of misguided bigots, who are now running roughshod over the GOP pussies that are too scared to oppose them, they value their job a lot more than they value America.

   Now these GOP pussies and the terrorist acting Tea party puppets all took an oath, an oath that they are now breaking, making them dishonorable traitors, and they wear the title proudly.

   So while the Libertarian party would just sit back and watch the show, there is a drastic need for those who recognize what the GOP/Tea party is doing to step up to the plate and defeat these treacherous bastards, and to stifle them permanently.

   So while I understand that the Democratic party is flawed, and it too has its own corruption to deal with, it is at least fighting "FOR" the average American, not "AGAINST" them, and President Obama has proven over and over that he is trying to better our lives, not enslave us.

  Every progressive thing suggested is shot down by the GOP/Tea party, they would rather see America burn to the ground than to see our President succeed, and if you can't see past your face enough to realize that, then I have no use for your views or critiques, please keep them to yourself.

   Some of us are trying to get something accomplished.

 More and more evidence of U.S. government involvement in 9/11 continues to manifest itself, when will there be an investigation into exactly who was responsible? 

Probably never.

Saturday, October 19, 2013


   So far my predictions have all been spot on, I said that the government shutdown would not lead to a default by the U.S., because President Obama would not allow it to happen, and it didn't.

   I really don't deserve much credit for that prediction because as I have stated over and over, every time the GOP/Tea party attacks President Obama, they have, without fail, ended up only making themselves look more pathetic and mean.

   That is why I refer to him as "Barack Houdini Obama", because just when it appears as though he is going to be snagged by the GOP scandal game, he quickly sidesteps their imaginary accusations. and they once again shoot themselves in he foot.

   Of course it helps tremendously that the reason they are unable to pin anything on him, is because he isn't guilty of their charges.

   So now, with the government re-open, many are concerned that we will just go through this same B.S. game again in 3 months, when the debt ceiling will need to be raised again, but I'll tell you right now, don't give it a second thought, you haven't a need to worry for even a second, here's why.

   In the next 3 months the website troubles that are currently causing problems for people to sign up for the ACA  will have been fixed, and Americans will sign up in mass numbers, proving that healthcare is an important issue with the public, and that they like what is being offered, to the chagrin of the GOP.

   Also, this last folly of Ted Cruz and his small band of extortionists has shown all America that the Tea party is nothing more than terrorist rebels, who would let this nation burn to the ground while they sang Dixie and roasted marshmallows in the fire.

   But the public also saw regular GOP members who went along with their rebel contemporaries, whether from conviction, or cowardice of their getting primaried, either way, what America saw was a political party that held this entire nation and everyone in it, hostage to their demands.

   The damage done to the conservative movement was immense, so much so that the Republican brand may not survive, and if it does, it will not have any resemblance to what it was.

  So with these things in mind, the GOP won't even think about rocking the boat again just months before the midterm elections, where previously it was a shoe in that their gerrymandered districting would allow them to continue to hold the house, but after all the dust has settled, it is being predicted that they may lose control of the house.

   Be assured that in the coming months that the GOP/Tea party will continue with their lies and false accusations, but even they aren't so stupid as to try a shutdown again.



Friday, October 18, 2013


To all those Americans who experienced any suffering due to the GOP induced government shutdown, those of us who who believe in an America without a need for terrorist type tactics empathize with you, and thank you, we are truly sorry that you were made unwilling sacrificial pawns of the GOP's radical Tea party wing. We wish for you a speedy recovery from any damage suffered, and a complete healing in time.

To those Americans who consider themselves conservatives and vote GOP, I can only assume from the polls that MOST of you did not want, nor approve of this shutdown, and that most of you did not like the idea of America being taken hostage by ANY party, for ANY reason. The vast majority of you I'm sure love this nation as much as any democrat, liberal, progressive, or independent does, and that you also understand that America was founded on principles that majority rules will dictate how we perpetuate this country forward, not allowing a small group of individuals to threaten to destroy our way of life if they don't get their way. Though they scream and shout that they are the true patriots, their words and actions are exactly what the founding fathers fought against, they are a cancer to your party, and they will be silenced, if you are at all concerned in the health and survival of the GOP as a integral part of the American political process, then you must rid yourselves of this cancer, and take your rightful place where you belong, alongside real Americans, fighting for what you believe in, not degenerating into a group of traitors bent on destroying our nation. America needs to have a voice for those who adhere to conservative values, but not from one holding a gun to its head.

To those tea party loyalists, I believe you love America, but you are not abiding by the American ways that have guided this nation for well over 200 years, your radical agenda does not promote the ideals set forth by our founding fathers, and the actions that are being implemented by your elected representatives are anything but patriotic. You may not like the way the government is being run, you may not like the current leadership in government, you have the right to feel that way, however, you DO NOT have the right to circumvent the American political process of changing things. You DO NOT have a right to threaten America with economic destruction and chaos simply because you are unhappy with the way things are. The actions and agenda of the Tea party have no place in this great nation, and as thus, the tea party will soon be swept away like so much dirt on the floor. Take yourselves away from this radical posturing and rejoin the ones who share your beliefs, but adhere to the American methods of change, voting.

You are not noble, you are not wise
You two brothers, are just despicable guys
Though you have lots of money, you are lower class
You're American traitors, and can both kiss my ass
You think you are kings, princes or dukes
But all you two are, are miserable pukes
You have all your gold, your silver and riches
Yet you both remain, two worthless bitches
You lack all integrity, style and grace
And it makes us all sick, to look at your face
You've paid for a party, who likes to serve tea
You try to control them, but it's easy see
You've created a monster, and it's turning on you
And that monster won't stop, whatever you do
It hates all it sees, and just wants to kill
Things that once pleased you, and gave you a thrill
The monster now threatens, what you hold so dear
An economy ruined, is your biggest fear
A second depression, much worse than the last
Your empire crumbling, your wealth fading fast
You might have regrets, for the misery you brung
But we will be cheering, the day you're both hung

   Well, it has been an exciting competition, with a very impressive group of contenders, but it has now come down to the 5 finalists for the most hated.

   All of these finalists have garnered enormous amounts of hatred from all corners of America, but only one can hold the title of "Most hated". 

Michele Bachmann is a longshot to win overall, but her recent support of Ted Cruz has bolstered her hatred ratings across America, and in D.C.

Ted Cruz is a front runner to be the most hated, his ability to deceive all the people all the time seems to continue working on his weak minded supporters, but to the non-tea party public, he is just a vile and evil self serving narcissist, who will gladly allow this nation to melt down.

John Boehner has not only amassed large amounts of hatred from Democrats, but has also managed to garner a tremendous amount from his own party, And along with most of America's ire, he would appear to be the one to take the title.

The Tea party have a very special type of hatred most Americans hold for them,the same type they hold for any terrorist organization, they are bigots, racists, and un-American fools who are like sheep that let themselves be led to slaughter.

And finally we have the Koch brothers, Though usually found hiding under a rock, these two self appointed rulers of the United States have been ultra busy in employing their destructive and sinister agenda all across America, and especially in Washington D.C. They are perhaps the most evil, despicaple, and vile creatures to ever shame the name "American". They are the odds on favorites to win the title of "The most hated".

   There you have it, the top 5 degenerates money and power can corrupt, together they represent a large portion of what is wrong in America, and each of them are very deserving of being named most hated, but only one can win, who might that be? I will let you know when and if this ever ends.

   If there are any sane, intelligent, reasonable, and patriotic Conservatives left in America, please come back to reality and do something about your political party.

   If you value the integrity, honor, and reputation of the Conservative movement, please reel in the lunatics that are currently claiming that title.

   If you would like the Conservative movement to continue as a viable political entity in this land, then please oust the un-American  traitors that are committing despicable acts in your party's name.

   If you honestly love this country, please contain those in your party who openly seek to destroy any semblance of government in America.

   The American(?) Tea party has not only hijacked your party, it is using extortion to keep the entire body of your elected legislators to agree with their outrageous demands.

   Your elected congressmen and senators are too scared of a small group of radicalized zealots who are funded by the Koch brothers and other mega wealthy sources, for them to do anything but fall in line, or they risk getting primaried at home.

   The Tea party has shown over and over that it is more than willing to destroy everything around it if they can't get their way, including America itself.

   They give lip service about being patriotic, while at the same time they are involved in actions that totally undermine the democratic process that this nation was founded on.

   Those Tea party individuals are under the control of the most elite 1/10th of 1% of the richest members of our society, and they don't even know it.

   So it's up to you, the moderate, well informed conservative to step up and reign in those that are destroying not only your party, but America as well

   The Democratic left and Conservative right have always had a balancing effect on each other, and this nation has grown and prospered throughout the years with that in place, but these Tea party terrorists threaten to dismantle every part of this country, and if they are not stopped soon, the GOP will feel the wrath of the nation and cease to exist.

   The normally apathetic of you must rise up and defend your values and beliefs, do not let the Tea party rule over you, they are the American taliban, and they will be defeated, it's up to you to decide whether or not the entire GOP goes with them.
