Words Do Matter

16 Jun

WORDS DO MATTER.
Its messed up with what happened to the congressmen/ladies and the cops in DC. There’s no excuse, except nuts should not be allowed to own guns. Liberals have been saying this for years.

Ted Nugent of all people is saying “maybe we need to tone down the rhetoric”. He is the same guy who said that president Obama and Hillary can suck on his gun, and other threats. Sarah Palin had a poster of bulls-eyes on congressmen, one of them was the guy who was shot in the hip.

Us “snowflake” liberals have been saying for years that this kind of talk, behavior is not acceptable. No one on the other-side of the tracks said a word, but called us names all day long. Now that someone got attacked by a nut-job, it needs to be toned down? It should have been toned down a long time ago. We have a sitting president who said he could still win if he shot someone on 5th ave. and his supporters cheered.

Political correctness and being polite does matter.
Yet still liberals are being called all kinds of names and that we are all terrorists, all because of one asshole. What about the ALT right, racist hate groups who support the president and have been killing people due to their race, and/or religion?

This has to stop. WORDS DO MATTER!!!!!

Hire at will, right to work, and the lack of your rights.

19 Dec

If you are for freedoms such as freedom of speech, freedom of religion, and so on ; yet you do not want to get fired over those “freedoms”. Then I sure hope you are against the ” hire at will” and ” right to work” laws in this country. The ” hire at will” and ” right to work” laws give the employers the upper hand . In the states that have “hire at will” laws ( most do, but some have stronger laws) and “right to work” laws ( a strong republican backed law) , an employee can be fired for absolutely anything they say or do while on or off of the clock.

If you are upset over the firing of Phil Robertson from Duck Dynasty and his interview in GQ (or anyone being fired over non-work issues), then I sure hope you are not in favor of the “hire at will law” and the “right to work law” ( his contract may also have a code of conduct clause in it). Those two laws put all of the power in the companies hands. Louisiana where Duck Dynasty is filmed is a right to work state (republican backed). If you are a die-hard American who loves his/her freedoms, then You need to be against the “hire at will” and ” right to work ” laws.

Republicans talk about the erosion of their ” freedoms” and are in favor of ” hire at will” and “right to work” laws, yet they are unable to connect the dots when it’s their ideology for more power to employers that’s taking away your freedoms ( you can not have it both ways). You may not think there’s a connection, but slow your role and look at what states have these laws, and hear the stories of why folks are fired from their jobs in those states. It’s not the liberal media or liberals agenda that’s “taking away freedoms” , it’s the republicans idea of having ” right to work laws”, and very strong ” hire at will laws”. Democrats are against the ” hire at will laws” and “right to work laws”.

I personally do not think I am losing my ” freedoms”. But I also understand that if I say something crazy, then there are repercussions, and that can include being let go from my job ; all because of these two laws I have talked about. So next time you think Americans are ” losing their freedoms” ; think about these two laws. Are you still in favor of them? If so , then you are not in favor of your ” freedoms”.

We are family.

8 Nov

Have you ever known of a family whose parents are super nice and polite? Then you find out they have some children who act unruly and cause all kinds of havoc? Sometimes no matter how great of a parent one may be, the kids will be a menace to society. It’s in their DNA and they have a brain and conscious of their own.  You have some parents who are a complete mess and the kids grow up to be doctors. It goes both ways.

This is what I see in Washington D.C and politics. We now have a congress who are acting like those unruly kids, and the Whitehouse are the parents who try to do everything right. Everything the President says or does, the GOP, and tea-party do just the opposite to make things difficult. Its getting to be foreseen before it even happens ( it’s like known that the bad child will end up in prison ). The Whitehouse can only do so much. The GOP in Congress have it set in their head that they will do whatever they want, even if it ruins America.

Back before President Obama, congress was doing the right thing and life was okay. Congress acted like the future doctor, and the Whitehouse from 2001-2009 ( Bush-era ) acted like the messed up parents, who had no idea on how to be a parent.

Let’s send the GOP and tea-party to therapy ( vote them out in 2014 ) and adopt some good kids ( democrats), so we can be a family again. The ones who act right.

War on Christianity.

13 Oct

You hear from the Republican party ( who claim to be the party of family and christian values) that there is a war on Christianity. As a Liberal, I will have to agree with them. Anyone who would want programs cut or decimated to help the poor, elderly, children, and disabled are attacking the values and beliefs of a Christian.

Ask yourself this, Who would want such programs defunded or decimated? Take a look at who is writing up these bills to be voted on. It all goes back to those people who claim to be of christian and family values, the republicans. Any chance they get to cut cost on government spending, it’s all programs that help those that Jesus would say need the most help.

Who had the clause to shut down the government if they didn’t get their way? The republicans did this. They get to keep their gym on capital hill open, all the while cancer patients get turned away because there is a partial government shutdown. Republicans are also doing what the terrorists want done to this great country America. They are hurting the economy by shutting down parts of the government, not trying to get laws passed to have corporations send jobs back to America, and ignoring the cry of the poor, all the while helping those who need no help ( filthy rich).

Yes republicans you are right about a war on Christianity, and the republicans are the root cause of the war. Your political beliefs and core values are against all Christian beliefs, look in the mirror when you talk about a war on Christianity.

Congress proved my point.

27 Apr

This past week a part of the sequester ( cuts in gov. subsidized programs to save money) affected some very rich and powerful people. God forbid if they have to sacrifice with the poor and humble folks of this great nation. Some of the programs that are taking a good hit are cancer patients ( they are being turned away from treatment), unemployment and food stamps ( I think), department of defence , and the FAA (delayed flights). Guess which one the super rich and powerful got all up in arms about? You got it, it was the flight delays.

Super rich and powerful Americans hate to sacrifice and be inconvenienced. They will throw fits and yell until they get their way. They are like that spoiled kid in your class that no one liked. A few congressmen and wealthy businessmen ( who complained to congress) had to sit and wait for their flight delay and hated it so much that they all reversed the cuts to the FAA in less than 2 hours. Do you think they reversed the cuts to the cancer patients? Heck no, they are sacrificing for the American good. Why? Because they are poor and it does not affect the rich and powerful.

The poor and powerless sacrifice 24/7 365. A segment of America hates to be inconvenienced even if it helps the rest of America. A certain group only cares about themselves.  If this does not want you to change the way America works, then I do not think anything will get you motivated to flip the switch.

If a law affects the poor and powerless, then it’s a great sacrifice for the American good. If a law affects the rich and powerful, then it’s class warfare and is unfair,and trust me they will change that law so they are not inconvenienced. If the rich and powerful profit from a law , then it’s capitalism at its best and a good profit motive law. If the poor and powerless profit from a law, then it’s people taking advantage of the American system. It’s people living off of the government. It’s people sucking off of the governments teat.

Whats it going to take for you to say you have had enough of the double standard?

How to fix the debt. From my angle.

24 Sep

All you hear about is how Congress is in a stalemate. It’s gotten real bad the last 3 years. From the right all they want to do is make huge cuts or get rid of programs with small tax rates. Even if you get rid of programs the past debt is still sitting there. No thanks to Grover Norquist and the Tea Party, the taxes are very hard to raise to bring in revenue. The left wants to do some cuts , but maybe not enough and they want to raise taxes. Raising taxes is picking on the wealthy and punishing success if you are a republican.

The spending from both parties is so out of hand. It just sickens me to think how much they spend and borrow, and all they can do is blame the other person. All the while we as a nation are so financially weak, we could be punked by other nations. By then it will be too late and having all of those cars in your big garages will not matter.

If your house hold gets deep in debt for what ever reason, you trim costs and try to find more revenue ( either ask for more hours or get a second job). This is what Congress needs to do. Here is where my idea comes in.

To please the tea party and all of the Grover’s in this would, leave the Bush tax rates as they are. To please both parties just cut 3% of the spending on all programs but social security and maybe just 2% on military. Do not cut  more or get rid of any programs. Heck even cut 5% on government subsidies. Stop paying other countries money all together. Most of them hate us in the first place.

Now this is where we get more revenue to pay down the debt. Use a regressive consumer tax rate. Have a 3% tax on all non perishable goods sold in the U.S.A. if that item is $1,000 or less. If it’s $1,000.01 up to $10,000 make it 2% and anything over $10,000 charge 1%. Now the whole world will help this great country pay down our debt. If someone in Europe comes over here to visit and buys anything other than food, they helped pay down the debt. If something is ordered on the internet and they live outside America, they helped pay down the debt. If someone here works for cash, they to will help pay down the debt. If someone is unemployed , they will help pay down the debt when they go buy a nice outfit for their interview. Illegal immigrants will help pay down the debt when they spend cash on clothes or cars.

Try this on a 3 year trial to see if it works. If it does keep it going and if not, it’s better than what we have now ( which is nothing but arguing). Plus using a consumer tax also keeps the income tax down that so many folks on the right complain about. It also puts the whole world in play to help our problem.

If you want something to work, you will find a way no matter what it takes. If you want it to fail, you will find every excuse in the book and do nothing but blame others.
