For cryin out loud! Enough with the GDF tax cuts! Is that all you got? Is that the damn solution for every single problem? If tax cuts were so great at creating jobs we'd be awash in jobs right now. If all Obama is going to do is offer tepid rehashed failed conservative policies to address our employment and economic problems then there is no reason to vote for him in 2012 no matter how bad the other side is! I am so sick of this shit!
Sniff, sniff, those poor widdle businesses have such a burden! How do they bear it!! So are these "job creators" going to go out a create a whole bunch of dandy jobs with this $10 billion in savings? This white house is all concerned and ready to counter criticism it's tone-deaf to business concerns but when comes to being tone-deaf to labor concerns where's the action? Tell me why I should vote for this guy again?
The radical Muslims who preach and practice hate and violence are CONSERVATIVE Muslims. The radical Christians who preach and practice hate and violence are CONSERVATIVE Christians. The radical Jews who preach and practice hate and violence are CONSERVATIVE Jews. Most extremest political movements and politicians who preach and practice hate and violence are CONSERVATIVE political movements and politicians. The problem is CONSERVATISM. Conservatism is a serious and dangerous mental disease and the world will not be safe until conservatism is eliminated.
"The Republicans have no credibility on deficits. The last Democratic president balanced the budget, while the last three Republican presidents successively outdid each other in creating record deficits. The Republicans have no credibility on deficits."
This is an excellent post. Sums it up perfectly. Something to be spread far and wide. A hallmark of conservatives of all kinds everywhere is they're wrong about everything, they're liars, they're ignorant, they're corrupt, they're incompetent, they're craven, they're greedy, they're stupid, they're disgusting!
Have I said yet how much I hate these people!
I didn't cause this fucking deficit, old people who got sick didn't cause this deficit, hungry children whose homes were foreclosed on illegally didn't cause this fucking crisis, your damned war profiteering did, tax cuts for the super rich did, corporate welfare did.

Budgets, Taxes, and Classes in America The war between business interests and wage earners intensifies
By Jack Rasmus
An economic class war between business interests and wage earners has been growing in the U.S. for at least the last three decades. It has also shifted in terms of its focus and emphasis several times. Today's emerging battles over budgets in the U.S.—federal, state, and local—represent yet another major shift and a new front in the intensifying economic class war in America.

Two multibillionaire brothers are remaking America for their own benefit. How corporate money took over Washington--and created the mobs who rant against reform
By Jim Hightower
Despite a constant racket from the forces of the far-out right (Fox television's yackety-yackers, just-say-no GOP know-nothings, tea-bag howlers, Sarah Palinistas, et al.), the great majority of Americans support a bold progressive agenda for our country, ranging from Medicare for all to the decentralization and re-regulation of Wall Street. Indeed, in the elections of 2006 and 2008, people voted for a fundamental break from Washington's 30-year push to enthrone a corporate kleptocracy.

New Exposé Reveals Nuclear Regulatory Commission Colluded with Industry to Weaken Safety Standards
Three U.S. senators have called for a congressional probe on safety issues at the nation’s aging nuclear plants following a pair of new exposés. In a special series called “Aging Nukes,” the Associated Press revealed that the U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission and the nuclear power industry have been working in tandem to weaken safety standards to keep aging reactors within the rules. Just last year, the NRC weakened the safety margin for acceptable radiation damage to reactor vessels. Watch at Democracy Now!: http://www.democracynow.org/2011/6/24/new_...
it's all part of a plutocratic propaganda speak designed to push buttons and illicit responses from nonthinking ignorant flying monkeys and obfuscate the true agenda of the oligarchs. The country swallows this idiotic pablum whole while our country is systematically destroyed. It's part of a conservative narrative that sells people a fairy tale and hides their true agenda and it works because too many people are too lazy to think and learn.
Notice how he changes the subject when Thom pointedly tears apart his opening statements. Typical conservative tactic, when their bogus talking point is shot down switch to another topic to avoid embarrassment at being proven wrong. What a lying pathetic loser. Typical.

You could make about a 100 versions of these taking quotes about abortion, religion, job killing regulations, dismantling EPA, gun rights, etc. Then blast them all over the Internet and TV.
in a fair fight based on their ideas or values (since they have none of either) so they cheat.
Unless there was a trial, a conviction, and a sentence, a due process, then there was no justice. Only vengeance. The whole point of our "exceptionalism" is that no matter who you are or what you did, there is due process. That is why extra judicial executions, military commissions, rendition, and torture is a rejection of who we claim to be and a rejection of our "exceptionalism".
Nobody does stupid, moron, or lying like conservatives and republicans!
