Some people need to be informed for the first time and others need to be reminded about Prescott Bush and Prescott Oil and Prescott Bush's ties with the Nazis; remind people about Ronald Reagan's Iran Contra scandal and Oliver North as his fall guy; remind people how GWB & Cheney enriched themselves even further from their wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, at the expense of our most precious resources --the lives of our ladies and men in uniform plus the expense of rewarding private contractor security war-profiteers from the Department of Defense funds. Remind people that one of the first cuts made by GWB and Dick Cheney, or perhaps THE FIRST cut they made, was to the Veterans Administration --yet GOP-n-P'ers always exclaim Support the troops! Remind people how McCain & Lieberman & Graham promised Momar Gaddafi they would help him secure military equipment from the United States. Isn't it funny how Republicans and Teabaggers in the House of Representatives and some of them in the Senate campaigned tirelessly with the battle-cry of "Where are the jobs?" when they themselves eliminated the workers' rights and consumer rights and those actual jobs themselves? Remind people how Republican business owners closed down USA factories and shipped USA jobs overseas to exploit cheap labor and no oversight for workers' rights and consumer protections. Remind people how the obstructionist Republicans and their Teabagging cohorts during President Obama's first term held hostage workers' unemployment checks and have blocked any and all progress in mopping up their trickle down economics cesspool.
Not unlike one of my heros said recently on his HBO show Real Time, if you're a working-class American and you still vote for and support Republican policies, you're stupid. Is that name-calling? No. It's a fact. The USA was founded with a mindset of embracing diversity, and people have every right to beLIEve in and proselytize about their beLIEfs in glorified mythologies and their devoted lemming loyalty for fundamentalist Faux News and Newsmax and other garbage, and they can do so on "their" facebook pages.
If you show that you are not interested in supporting President Obama, our Hawai'ian-born Harvard Law School Constitutional Law expert, you are actually showing everyone that you really do not believe in equality, tranquility, common welfare, or liberty and justice FOR ALL.
We need a Democratic Party supermajority to put an end to the filibustering delay tactics that the GOP always uses, not unlike unreasonable bratty children who want their way no matter how much you try reasoning with them.
No more elephant crap and no more tea stains!
Hang in there if you can, everyone.
