A tiny piece of my mind about this “government shutdown.”  Don’t negotiate with terrorists!

When accused in a book review of being a “Debbie Downer” for reviewing the research and stating the facts about boomer reality, how could I not respond?

From the article “The House of Pain” by Ryan Lizza in The New Yorker, March 4, 2013:

“A poll in January deemed Congress less popular than cockroaches, head lice, and colonoscopies (although it did beat out the Kardashians, North Korea, and the Ebola virus).”

Nora Ephron and trouble

Hillary ClintonFinally, someone had the balls to stand up to those Republicans in Congress and say: YOU TAKE RESPONSIBILITY!

Do they really think they are gaining points with the American people by blaming her for all the people in the world that hate us, and would kill us if they had the chance?

Here is my response to Senator Rand Paul’s comment that Hillary should have been fired for not protecting our people in Benghazi.  If Clinton should have been fired for 9/11/2012, than most certainly President Bush should have lost his job IMMEDIATELY after September 11th 2001.  I only wish President Obama had said this when he was being attacked.

Did you know applications for our foreign service actually went up after these attacks? 

Secretary of State Clinton: “Our men and women who serve overseas understand that we accept a level of risk to protect this country we love.  They represent the best traditions of a bold and generous nation.  And they cannot work in bunkers and do their jobs.”

I know we cannot protect every American in the wide world.  The Congressional Republicans want to blame everything on Clinton, but the mature, adult response is to take responsibility for your own actions or lack of them, just like Clinton has done.

Would it be too much for Congress to actually do something now, after doing absolutely NOTHING for the past four years?

It seems the Republicans, who said their only purpose was to dump Obama, have failed miserably.  That is why they have stood in the way of ever attempt at progress on improving our economy, stabilizing the jobless rate, or lowering the deficit for the past four years.

And it is only because they cannot put off doing their job any longer, that they are now squawking about how hard it is.

My response?  Yes, your job is difficult.  That’s why you get all that great free health care and get paid the BIG BUCKS!  Now get your shit together and DO SOMETHING!

Quit giving the richest Americans the best tax breaks, while trying to figure out how to make the poorest among us pay more.

News Flash: Those living on very little or social security will not be your best source for building up revenue.  You have bled them dry now.

I know you and your rich friends sure hate to pay taxes, but hey, it is for a good cause… the future of your own country.  Time to find a little Christmas generosity and patriotism inside!

This is not brain surgery, which is a good thing because Congress has certainly proven that they are not the sharpest pencils in the box.

Unfortunately, Congress does not understand or represent the circumstances of most Americans today.  Most in Congress are millionaires, but they have also proven, again and again, they are not particularly good at understanding basic math.

In case you missed it, billionaires worldwide put all of their money behind buying the presidency this week, and were angry and truly astounded to find that it did not work.  How could they have God and billions on their side and still lose?

Just to be clear about what really happened here, Obama won a larger margin of the U.S. popular vote than JFK, or Nixon, or Carter, or George Bush in either of his elections.

If Florida finally goes democratic, Obama will have won 332 electoral votes, and over 3 million more votes than Romney in the popular vote.

It is quite fun to watch the “conservative” pundits grovel around now, trying over and over again to make the point that this is no mandate from the people.  However, when you have spent millions upon millions to buy the vote, and you still lose by this much, I say there is some important message here.

John Nichols, a writer for Nation magazine, sees this election as a referendum on austerity and reform, and hopes that the president understands that the people fully understood the choices before them. This was a conscious choice to push back against right wing economics, and various other limitations on our freedom.

The progressive agenda is to pass legislation that benefits ALL of the people, not just the richest or most powerful among us.  We demand that secret sources of corporate and big money get out of politics, and let the people decide their own fate.

The American people are smart enough to control our own government and do not need those richer than us to tell us what we want.

“Nothing is scarier than nothing.”

Did you know that a major industry has grown up around getting us all to hate our president?  There were five hate books produced against George Bush.  We now have over 60 produced to cause us to fear and hate President Obama.

We received a hate video at our home yesterday which portrays our president as the devil out of deepest, darkest Africa.  How desperate are those who feel the need to discredit Obama at every turn?  VERY!  They are certain they can buy this election with their fear mongering, and they just might be right.

If they had any interest in reality, they would know that Obama never lived in Africa, and basically never knew his Kenyan father.  He met him twice for a few days in his early childhood, and then when he was ten.

But pure and simple racism gathers an easy audience among the uneducated.  The Koch brothers, the third richest billionaires in America, are bankrolling this effort to make us fear and hate our own president, as Obama struggles against an obstructionist Congress and hate-mongers everywhere, to bring us out of the worst recession since the Great Depression.

In contrast, the expert propagandists have created an artificial dichotomy, one which tells us that Romney is a safer, whiter choice for America.

I have to wonder how many of those voting this year know anything about the history or power of the Mormon Church?  How many truly understand what Mitt Romney represents in terms of a woman’s right to control her own body?  How many know that Mitt’s grandfather had 5 wives and 30 children, and had to move to Mexico to avoid prosecution as a polygamist?

I have lived in Utah and seen the world that Mormonism hopes to create, and frankly, it scares me!  In my only experience living in a complete theocracy, I learned that barefoot and pregnant is still alive and well in that culture.  Women there are brainwashed to marry by age 20 and then quickly begin producing at least five Mormon kids, which they then raise in the faith.  If you don’t believe me, go read Ann Romney’s life story.

To the Mormons, Mitt’s election equals the next step in their fight to dominate America and then the world, and in case you don’t understand what’s going on here, this equals a giant step backwards for all social justice in our country.

So why does the mainstream media love him???

Here we go again with the disparaging comments about our country…

Thanks for telling us how you really feel, Mitt!

“There are 47% of the people who are dependent upon government, who believe that they are victims, who believe the government has a responsibility to care for them, who believe that they are entitled to health care, to food, to housing, to you-name-it.  That’s an entitlement…”

How presumptuous of us who feel “entitled to health care, to food, and to housing.”  Yes, 60% of us do have jobs but don’t make enough to qualify for paying taxes, 40% are disabled and/or elderly living off their hard earned Social Security checks.  But let’s throw the bums out in the streets, or better yet, kill them off, so we don’t have to support them.

Please tell us,  Mr. Hitler, what else you would like to change about America?
