The Right Questions

This is what everyone in the USA needs to be asking!

I found this over at AmericaBlog, and usually I would just link to it, but I wanted to reprint it in full because it asks the questions that are being ignored.

AmericaBlog Reader John writes:

How many times do we have to hear:

We don't have ENOUGH MONEY to fix Social Security.
We don't have ENOUGH MONEY to fix Medicare.
We don't have ENOUGH MONEY to provide health care to ALL Americans.
We don't have ENOUGH MONEY to help out Americans losing their homes.
We don't have ENOUGH MONEY to help all our veterans returning from war.
We don't have ENOUGH MONEY to rescue "no child left behind".


We DO HAVE ENOUGH MONEY to bail out Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac.
We DO HAVE ENOUGH MONEY to bail out Bears Stearns.
We DO HAVE ENOUGH MONEY to pay for an unnecessary TRILLION DOLLAR war.

When the LITTLE GUY needs help, they scornfully say, "GET A JOB!"
But when one of their BIG GUY CRONIES need a bailout, what do they say? SURE, NO PROBLEM. Where's the checkbook?

"But what about the debt we're leaving on the backs of our childen and their future?"
"Children? WHOSE Children? OUR children won't have to pay for this. YOUR children will."

The Republicans have had their hands in our pockets for well over 8 years.
Now they are robbing us blind IN BROAD DAYLIGHT and smiling about it!!!!
The Republicans have shown their true colors and now they expect us to vote them back into office?

What's next? Should we bend over and spread 'em? Oh, I'm sorry, but we've ALREADY DONE THAT!!

Vote for REAL change this November.

Someone observed yesterday:

The Republicans want to privatize profit but socialize loss.

Social Security Update

Finally someone on the news networks is asking the right questions about regular people and "the market".

Go Cafferty!

¿Dónde está España?

¿Quién es Señor Zapatero?

This is almost too weird, John McCain does not know where Spain is or who its President is. (hat tip to AmericaBlog for this story).

TPM broke the story and I didn't quite believe it at first, but I went and listened to the interview and the account that is given on AbericaBlog is spot on.

I guess that without Joe Lieberman at his shoulder correcting his gaffs, McCain's real knowledge of the world is a lot more apparent. You would thing that McCain's handlers would have given him at least a basic breifing (Now remember John, Spain is in Europe - yes, I know they talk funny there - and the name of its president is Zapatero, no, Za-pa-tero John)

This could be seen as a major insult to the people of Spain.

John McCain after his interview

So today's question is:

Would you be more or less likely to vote for McCain if you knew that he had early stage Alzheimer's Disease?

Given the events of the last couple of days

It's probably a good thing that BushCo didn't manage to privatize Social Security.

If they had your "private account" would likely be gone today.

Remember, John McCain also wants to "privatize" your Social Security, and until yesterday he was the big "deregulator", which is to say he wants to make it easier for corporations to do the things that have created the problems we see today.

For all of you who just saw your 401K accounts go belly up I am sorry, that is unless you voted for Bush and his republican cronies, in which case I guess you are fine with having just lost your life savings, because this is what you voted for.

The price of believing Republican lies is that you lose everything.

McCain Lies, Palin Lies

The Republicans lie

You have been lied to for the last eight years. Those lies have brought about the near downfall of our country.

If you vote for John McCain you are voting for the lies that have wrecked our economy and sent our money into the pockets of the mega-corps, the Mid East and Communist China. But Americans have been cyniclly conditioned to believe Republican lies over the last thirty years or so.

Before we can break our addiction to foreign oil we must first break our addiction to Republican lies.

I know that all the Right Wingers want to believe that they are correct about all the things they have belived about themselves and our country But reality has caught up with them.

Republicans have drivwen this country into a ditch, they have ruined our econemy and done it all with lies.

Republicians Lie!

God offers His opinion

on the election!

Do you remember when the Democratic convention was going on, all the evangelicals were praying for rain? They wanted Obama's speech to get rained out, but as it happened the night of Obama's speech was as clear as a bell, warm and comfortable, the stars twinkled down on Obama as only happens in the South West.

On the other hand, the Republican convention got hurricane Gustav, they even had to push its opening back a day. Now we have hurricane Ike pounding Texas, the home state of George W Bush.

It seems to me that God has let us know what he thinks of Right Wingers, so called Evangelicals that think they have God in their pockets, Republicans who wear their religion on their sleeves while being complete hypocrites, and George Bush along with his whole Texas Mob (like the criminal Tom DeLay)

God has shown us that He doesn't like them very much, that he will not only NOT answer their prayers but that He will visit on them what they ask to be given to others.

Lets see how smug they are after a bit of this. Perhaps now they will actually read the the teachings of Jesus (as) They should start with Mathew 5 through 7.

If you don't actually follow the teachings of Jesus (as) then you have no business calling yourself a Christian. Better you should call yourself a Paulian, or a James Dobsonian or a I-hate-everyone-who-is-not-like-me-ian.

But God WILL notice, and when you pray for rain you will get an answer you don't like.

The New Straight Talk Express

Just say'n

In 2000 I would have voted for McCain if he had gotten the nomination instead of Bush. It was a no brainer, and the country would have likely been better off than today under the heel of BushCo.

But whoever is inhabiting McCain's body today is not the same man who ran in 2000. If anything he is even slimier than "The Shrub" was during that race.

This entry just keeps getting bigger.

I wonder how McCain's illegitimate black baby feels about the champaign he is running today?

Notice any similarities?

Here is Sarah Palin answering a question about the Bush Doctrine
(warning: Painful to watch)


Contrast it with this next one and you see where she developed her public speaking skills.

Gina Gershon Channels Sarah Palin

Gotta Love It!

It's sad though that today the only truth we can find has to disguise itself as comedy.

See more Gina Gershon videos at Funny or Die

So do you want to understand what McCain is doing?

I mean with the Palin thing and such-like?

It's a matter of perception and gender of course! Just take this simple test and you will see what I mean.

Watch the video all the way through and do the count as accurately as you can. If you like you can tell me what your count was in the comments (there will be a prize for the first person who gets it right).

Below is my commentary, you will have to use your mouse to highlight the text as I don't want to give away the number.

OK, if you went through the video you see that most people miss the gorilla. This is something that is happening right now, to you. You need to ask yourself "while I am distracted by counting Sarah Palin's many failings, what is the republican gorilla doing?"

It's all smoke and mirrors designed to keep you distracted so that when the republicans try to steal the election (again) you won't notice.

Every "pig in lipstick" furor is nothing more than asking you to "count the passes"

Wake up before you lose your country.

McCain lies
Palin lies
The Republicans lie

Four more years of living the Republican lie means that America falls

John McCain chooses the "Tonya Harding" of politics as his running mate

And soul mate as well it seems.

Meet Sarah Palin (shown here in a shot from collage that would have made Britney Spears proud). John McCain's pick for Vice President (I suspect the emphasis here is on "Vice") seems to be the poster girl for Miss trailer trash 2008. (A title currently held by "mean" Jean Schmidt of Ohio)

After a stunning run in the local PTA, and a stint as mayor of a town with more caribou than people, she is elected to run what is arguably the most corrupt State Government in the USA.

The tee shirt reads "I may be broke but I'm not flat busted"

I just can't help being reminded of Ms. Harding when I see Palin.

I just have to wonder if the Secret Service shouldn't up the security on Senator Biden's kneecaps.

(And ya just know that there is going to be a sex tape in this somewhere).
