Tuesday, November 24, 2009

Have you ever seen something on the television that made you so mad that even though you were alone in the room and knew that no one could hear you, you could not help but scream profanities at the screen. Today was one of those days. I was watching CNN's sister network Headline News. The topic was implementing a war tax to help pay for the continuing war and proposed troop surge in Afghanistan. The tax, I believe, is more ideologically driven and meant as a protest against the war. I don't believe it will ever be implemented but I think it serves as a wake up call to all Americans that the soldiers and their families shouldn't be footing all the emotional and physical cost of wars alone. I think it's meant to say in essence if you believe this war is worth fighting... Put your money where your mouth is! Sure putting magnetic ribbons and flag stickers on your car is all fine and dandy but it is in fact the very very least you could be doing. During WW II people went without food and clothing to support the war and the troops. Families planted victory gardens and bought war bonds to show they were willing to sacrifice for their country and their beliefs.

The people I saw on CNN today made me REALLY PISSED OFF!!!!!!

The segment consisted of the anchorwoman asking your average John and Jane Doe what they thought about the war tax. She first stated that it would only effect families making 150k a year and that the tax increase would be 1% for them moving gradually higher the more money individuals made. Well the brain-trusts who felt they were qualified to speak out on the issue did not disappoint. The first gentleman started railing against Barack Obama's "Czars" and then stood there with the satisfied grin of a child who had just dropped a deuce in his diapers. He said that all the "Czars" should be eliminated because they make more money than the soldiers ever could. This is of course the man being a good drone and parroting a Glenn Beck talking point while having no grasp of what he was saying or how it pertained to the question at hand. The next caller was a woman who claimed that in this economy that she had sacrificed enough and in addition to that, taxing her mother, who was on a fixed income was unfair. .... Yes, I was screaming at the screen by now. I highly doubt this woman or her mother was pulling down 150k a year therefor they had nothing to worry about... Therefore WTF!!!!!!!

There are insanely brave and patriotic men and women loosing their lives for this war every day. There are loving families loosing their sons, daughters, husbands and wives to this war every day. If you are a person who considers himself truly patriotic and believes in this war as the brave soldiers and their families do you should be willing to part with a few dollars to make sure they have proper equipment and medical care when they return home. If you can't make that minuscule sacrifice then you have no right to ever voice your worthless cowardly opinion ever again!

Racist Anti-Obama Billboard

Civil discourse is a wonderful thing. If you don't agree with someone, a polite and vigorous discussion can yield gratifying results. However, if you don't posses the oratory skills to carry out such a discussion name calling and character assassination is usually the next option available to an individual. Well it appears another option is renting out a billboard to espouse your hatred and racism.

Such is the case with New Wolf Auto in Wheat Ridge, Colorado. In a billboard paid for by right wing website WorldNet Daily the leasing company's manager Wayne Means and owner of the lot Phil Wolf make their idiocy abundantly clear. The billboard exclaims “President or Jihad? Prove It! Wake Up America! Remember Ft. Hood!”

Also on the billboard President Obama is presented in caricature, wearing a turban.

Delightful isn't it!

Hey Colorado... If you have any conscience at all you'll boycott these morons! Wolf Interstate Leasing & Sales, 4855 Miller Street in Wheat Ridge Ph. # 720-898-9019.

The Newest Far-Right Craze Prays For Obama's Death

There’s a new slogan making its way onto car bumpers and across the Internet. It reads simply: “Pray for Obama: Psalm 109:8”

The citation is being passed around the Internet as a rallying cry against President Obama. What makes this psalm so upsetting is that it prays for the death of the person your directing it towards. Isn't that a hoot. Here is the psalm in it's entirety:

Let his days be few; and let another take his office.

Let his children be fatherless, and his wife a widow.

Let his children be continually vagabonds, and beg: let them seek their bread also out of their desolate places.

Let the extortioner catch all that he hath; and let the strangers spoil his labor.

Let there be none to extend mercy unto him: neither let there be any to favor his fatherless children.

Let his posterity be cut off; and in the generation following let their name be blotted out.

Let the iniquity of his fathers be remembered with the LORD; and let not the sin of his mother be blotted out.

Let them be before the LORD continually, that he may cut off the memory of them from the earth.

Not very Christian of them is it?

The American Family Organization Calls For Gap Holiday Ad Boycott

the whackos over at The American Family Association are boycotting the Gap because its Gap Holiday Ads are putting Christmas on the same footing as infidel holidays like Hanukkah, Kwanzaa, and Solstice, and ending the spot with the tag "Ready For Holiday Cheer" instead of "Merry Christmas" ONLY! Alrighty then... BEHOLD SATANS DANCE!!!!!

Really Christians... That prancing around is threatening to you and your way of life???? How did you guys make it this far!

Tea Party Leader Nixes Plans To Burn Nancy Pelosi In Effigy

Taking their marching orders from Right-wing, anti-abortion activist Randall Terry, a group of Virginia based teabaggers had planed to burn an effigy of Nancy Pelosi as well as one of Dem Rep. Tom Perriello in protest of the health care bill.

Terry called on his comrades to participate in “Burn in Hell,” anti-healthcare reform protests by setting fire to the politicians likenesses. There’s even a ridiculous youtube video showing how to build the effigies and burn 'em up real good!

The patriotic pyros are now getting cold feet citing "...a lot of flack" about the mock immolations.

Awww, c'mon guys! Don't lose your nerve now. What could be more American than burning women's likenesses for fun! It was a big hit in Salem a few decades ago... Except that was for real. Keep those dreams alive Terry!

Obama's Bow Enrages Critics

During Presidents Obama's Asian tour he met with Japan's Emperor Akihito and as is customary bowed when meeting him. This is a show of respect and is considered to be to be well within protocol guidelines that the State Department issues for foreign service officers working in other countries. One would think nothing out of the ordinary would come of this interaction... But you would be wrong. Right wing talking heads and bloggers are all a titter believing that Obama was groveling before the his Japanese counterpart. Some bloggers have even deemed the bow to be "treasonous"! I'm just guessing they don't remember when George W. Bush met with Saudi Crown Prince Abdullah and not only smooched with him but held his hand while they strolled in the Rose Garden! Yeah... I'm guessing that slipped their minds.

Court Won't Hear Complaint About Redskins

In a 17-year court battle between the Redskins and a group of American Indians the Supreme Court turned away an appeal that claims the name of the NFL's Washington Redskins football team is offensive. None of the judges has commented on whether the Redskins name is offensive or racist, instead holding in favor of the football team on the legal technicality that the suit was filed decades after the first Redskins trademark was issued in 1967.

In case will not end with this decision though. A group of six American Indians ranging in age from 18 to 24 filed essentially the same claim two years ago.

It's my belief that the team's name has been around so long that the racially insensitive moniker of Redskin has lost it's ugliness. Think of this though. If the team was coming into existence today and tried to lobby the NFL to let them use the name Washington Redskins the team would be run out of town on a rail! It's time to let this one go... It's just embarrassing now!

Ex-N.Y. Post Editor Says Paper's Out To 'Destroy' Obama

Sandra Guzman, a former editor at the New York Post, has filed a lawsuit against News Corporation, the New York Post and the paper's editor in chief Col Allan.

In her suit she alleges incidents of sexual harassment, racial discrimination and "unlawful employment practices and retaliation."

Along with the suit other provocative items came to light as well. One of these is the admission by one of the New York Post's high ranking journalists who had confirmed to [her] that the Post had a policy in place "to destroy Barack Obama. We don't want him to succeed.'"

The rest of Ms. Guzman's allegations reads like a laundry list of sexual perversions. Here are some of the lowlights laid out in Guzman's complaint...

"On one occasion when Ms. Guzman and three female employees of the Post were sharing drinks at an after-work function. Defendant Allan approached the group of women, pulled out his blackberry and asked them 'What do you think of this?' On his blackberry was a picture of a naked man lewdly and openly displaying his penis. When Ms. Guzman and the other female employees expressed their shock and disgust at being made to view the picture, Defendant Allan just smirked... [N]o investigation was ever conducted and the Company failed to take any steps to address her complaints."
Guzman's complaint goes on:
"On another occasion, upon information and belief, Defendant Allan approached a female employee during a party at the Post, rubbed his penis up against her and made sexually suggestive comments about her body, including her breasts, causing that female employee to feel extremely uncomfortable and fearing to be alone with him."
That sounds like one classy operation they're running over there!

Limbaugh Blames Obama For Fort Hood Shooting

OK... Here's how it broke down in the warped mind of Limbaugh. Rush apparently read the mind of shooter Nidal Malik Hasan and found out that he went on his rampage because Obama said he would get American troops out of Iraq and hasn't done that yet. That's It... Really! Here is what he said verbatim:

... "we can almost say that this is Obama’s fault, because this guy said that he believed that Obama was going to get us out of Iraq and Afghanistan. Obama hasn’t done it, and that’s one of the reasons why the guy cracked."

Quite a stretch even for his drug addled mind. By the way wasn't it George Bush that got us into the Iraq war by choice? Just saying.

Westboro Baptist Church Protests Outside Obama Girls' School

The lunatic fringe Westboro Baptist Church was spotted this morning protesting outside Sidwell Friends, the school attended by Sasha and Malia Obama. Protesters carried signs with anti-gay, anti-abortion and anti-Obama slogans, slowing down traffic all along Wisconsin Avenue.

The anti-gay church is famous for protesting at military funerals and claiming that God is punishing the country for its tolerance of homosexuality.

According to their web site, today they plan to hit a few more local schools and the White House

The church has posted on their website insane hateful rhetoric such as: "Quakers?! Are you frigging kidding me? You pretend to be all non-violent, and you allow the most bloody, deceitful, evil, murderous bastard and his shemale sidekick to place their satanic spawn within your four walls?"

The School has issued this statement: "We support the First Amendment here, so there was nothing we wanted to do about it."

Maine votes to repeal same-sex marriage

In a blow to gay rights Maine has said no to same sex marriage at the ballot box. For now it seems that Maine is inhabited by a majority of intolerant homophobes who fear the inevitable. When that generation of bigots finally pass on and go to their segregated Nirvana in the sky then more reasonable heads can prevail. Much like the fight for equal rights for minorities (Remember not long ago blacks and whites could not marry!) there will one day be equality for homosexuals and this will be looked at as an embarrassing chapter in America's history.

House Passes Landmark Health Care Bill

So much for death panels killing your Grandma! Scare tactics and tea parties lost out as the house vote of 220 to 215 passed the health care bill. Now the Senate will be able to begin debate the issue. What helped the Bill pass were the tough new restrictions on abortion coverage in insurance policies to be sold to many individuals and small groups finally secured the votes needed to pass the legislation. They even managed to get one lone Republican vote. A GOP alternative was rejected on a near party line vote of 258-176 because congressional budget analysts said the plan would make no dent in the ranks of the uninsured. After 8 years of war and warmongering it's nice to see something done to help people live better and longer!

AARP And AMA Supports Obama'a Health Care Reform

So Much For the Republicans specter of "Death Panels" killing your grandma! If AARP backs the public option then you can be sure no old people are gonna be put down. AARP, the nation's premier lobbying group for the elderly, has looked at the bill and is supporting it in the interest of seniors. In looking at the American Medical Association support one would have to understand that they would never back a bill that would take medical decisions out of patients hands and let it be controlled by the government. In gaining these two endorsements one must believe that it will go a long way in gaining the trust of those who are frightened by health care reform... Hopefully.

3,500 Tea-baggers descend on Capitol Hill

Yesterday on Fox News Michele Bachmman (R-Minn.) told supporters to come on down to Washington and "scare" her colleagues into voting against health care reform by voicing their displeasure. Well it appears that is exactly what they did this Thursday. In numbers far smaller than the 9/12 protest, tea- baggists, chanted “Kill the bill! Kill the bill! Kill the bill!”... Get it ... like the 2003 Quentin Tarrintino movie Kill Bill (They are so hep and with it). To show that they are equally as hep several prominent GOP members made appearances at the rally to bask in the hatefest's splendor.

Minority Leader John Boehner waved a copy of the Constitution and said “We hold these truths to be self-evident,”..... A passage from the Declaration of Independence. OOPS!

Rep. Jean Schmidt pointed out three House office buildings near the protest and invited the tea party enthusiasts to go and "Let them know how you feel about this bill."

Jon Voight, lunatic and father of Angalina Jolie, was at the rally and said of Barak Obama "Maybe it was the 20 years of sub-conscious programming by Rev. Wright to damn America."

After the teabagging subsided a dozen Baggers (?) were arrested for unlawful entry and disorderly conduct for shredding copies of the health care bill outside of Nancy Pelosi’s office. Chalk up another victory for Republican fear mongering!
