To me, Romney came across as who he truly is. He is that boss we all hate who expects everyone to laugh at his feeble and insulting attempts at humor or get fired. His contempt for this president is apparent in the disrespect he has shown the leader of the free world and his president. He disrespects our president as a human being, as a man and worst of all he disrespects the office for which he is asking our vote. I report, you decide.
I’m baaack!!!!! Guess I will start this new activity string with our President telling truth. Welcome back to you too Mr. President.

Ladies and gentlemen, the “leadership” has no clothes and finally my beloved Democrats are calling them naked liars. The news of a newly feisty Democratic leadership unveiled a video presentation of Mitch McConnell lying about the Wall St reform bill. This was reported by the team at MSNBC’s First Read.
Dick Durbin, Harry Reid and Chuck Schumer unleashed the hounds of truth and took it to the minority leader’s tactic from the GOP pollster) Frank Luntz’s playbook. Hey Mitch, just saying that the bill will institutionalize bailouts does not make it so. When you lie so often and get caught so often, thinking and rational people stop believing you.
The Republican “leadership” is sailing a once honorable and mature political party into the abyss of fringery. They would rather support bill requiring people of color to produce papers if they “look” like illegal aliens. The normal person outrage against this bill proposed in AZ and endorsed by candidate, J.D. Hayworth is growing louder by the day.
Republicans, take back your party and then maybe you will have a chance to take back your country. Don’t buy into the lies and fear-mongering, these morons mistake for honorable opposition. You do have sensible ideas to offer and this country of ours needs you to get rid of these idiots.
Most of all, please stop poisoning your minds with the garbage barfed out by Fox News. They do not have your interests in mind and do not care about you. Rupert Murdock and his vampires do not mean OUR country any good. They want to keep you scared and the nation divided. Our Union is our strength and our enemies know this. Don’t you think they are loving the vitriol and hate we are aiming at each other. STOP IT!!! Boycott Rupert’s empire and start with Fox News which has been proven to be a fund raiser for the the current “leadership” which always panders to the worst in us.
I will close with what the big guns at Fox News really think of their viewers. I am reporting, you decide: http://assimilatedpress.blogspot.com/2006/09/rupert-murdoch-calls-fox-news-viewers.html

Well Mr. President, haven’t you had an eventful 4 years in office.
I can appreciate the unfairly and seemingly impossible heights of achievement the first black President of the United States is expected to meet. You have suffered through indignities that no white president has ever had to endure and have done so with grace, intelligence and a little bit of gangsta where required. You have been called a communist, a socialist, un-american, an Arab spy, they talked about you like a dog to use your words. You have proven that you can take all of that abuse and still offer your enemies the opportunity to be statesmen even when they do their damnedest to be the narrow minded bigots that they really are at their core.
Enough of this talk about race except for the following missive to my beloved left. The next time you complain about this man not fighting for the Progressive agenda remember who this man is. You would like to think that this country is “post-racial” since his election. Got news for you, just the opposite has happened as most thinkers feared. The ugly under-belly of bigotry seeks to destroy the President of the United States, they say, because of his policies. Policies that economists have proven are the way out of the abyss that the last white guy left this country in. Yes they seek to destroy him and make him a 1 term President because he is a Democrat but mostly because he is the black guy in the White House. That’s right I said it!
They can euphemize all they want with their polite code words but they barely stop short of calling him a N*gger. Hell, some already call him that after they make sure a mic is not around. To all my fellow Americans who are suffering the malaise of politicians getting elected, only to spend their legislative terms getting re-elected and or campaigning, if you don’t beef about it then shut the front door! You sit back and allow this sh*t to happen and even turned your backs on President Hope and Change because he did not walk on water. The President should do this, he should take the lead on that. I can’t recall a white democratic president who ever had as many demands placed on his shoulders and his alone. Is he not supposed to have the clout of the entire Democratic party behind him? Their silence is deafening, to abuse the cliche.
Next time you complain that he sold us out. Next time you are silent as he is getting beat up. Next time you bitch about your circumstances, watch the video below and remember what he had to deal with and what he amazingly has gotten accomplished along with the best damn Speaker of the House in decades. The next time you feel tired of defending your President against his domestic enemies remember what he has done on your ungrateful behalf.
Since my daughter reminded me that nothing is real until it is Facebook real, all you FBookaholics can find the Facebook list of President Obama’s Accomplishments from the DCCC
Let’s hear it for the black guy in the White House! Happy New Year Mr President!! Godspeed.

The American wage earner is under attack! If you get a paycheck instead of signing them, I am talking to you. You may say I don’t belong to a union. What have they done for me? Have some education.
If you have been following the news lately then you must have heard about what is going on in Wisconsin. The newly elected governor, Scott Walker is firing the first shot at destroying the American organized labor movement. We all have the labor movement to thank for the following to name just a few: 40 hour work weeks, the concept of the weekend, restrictions on child-labor, protections against discrimination and unlawful termination, overtime, sick days and so much more. If the Wisconsin governor is successful in passing his union busting agenda, kiss all of these things goodbye and say hello to the sweat shop. Slaving away at a job for up to 60 hours a week, unsafe working conditions, no benefits, no raises, child labor, Say hello to the third world hell hole that will become our beloved Republic. In case you have forgotten, here is a brief lesson about what we owe those who have died to give us a civilized work place and a shot at the Dream:
I can remember that the history of unions and the labor movement in general were once required learning in our schools. We were taught Civics where we were learned how our government is supposed to work and how to actively participate in it. So how does big business keep the masses in the dark? Attack the teachers. Re-write the textbooks and make sure all those inconvenient details are left out to keep us all apathetic and asleep while they lie and steal from us, the ones who have made them rich in the first place.
Brothers and sisters, this attack is coordinated and well planned and it is spreading across the country because we were so angry at the Democratic party that we allowed the tools of big business, today’s Republican party, to continue the lies. We allowed Fox news, the propaganda wing of the big business to get into our heads and make us believe they are right. True enough the Democrats have been a disappointment. They have allowed the GOP to gut the very protections and rights we hold dear and THEY WILL NOT STOP.
I applaud the Wisconsin 14. 14 Democrat state senators who have fled their state to try to slow down governor Walker’s agenda. If we do not wake up and support their efforts; if we as a people do not make some noise to stop this spreading cancer; if we do not support those who would defend our rights, then we deserve what scraps are left of our once great nation. The middle class has been decimated and the Dream will be but a memory our grandparents told us about. We will have forfeited our birthright.
TO BE CONTINUED

If I hear another, skin flinted, helped to get us in this mess, Republican says that the American people reject something they want to derail, I feel my head is on the verge of exploding! Just because you SAY the American people are behind us to justify their quest to kill all things Obama, does not mean that it is true. The Republican Party once stood for something. They did not have the mind set of heartless, cruel, oppose at all costs everything that would help the American people, that I know. The once principled Republican party is now populated with Appalachian trail hiking, wide stance in a restroom having, liars, hypocrites, and racists.
Is this not 2010 and this country still can’t get it together when it comes to race. Make no mistake their opposition at every turn is firmly rooted in covert and sometimes, overt racism. America voted for an African American man to be our leader and their base of scared white people simply can not accept it. He must have been born in Kenya. He must be a Muslim radical. He has got to be stopped to take back “our” country. When they say “our” country, they do not include the vanishing middle class, people of color, LGBT Americans, the working poor or anyone else who does not attend a Klan meeting.
Surely this can not be the country that America aspires to be. The Republican presidential campaign slogan was “Country First”. What an insidious euphemism for what they really meant. The once proud and respectable GOP has become a party that constantly uses fear to keep their base riled up and vocal. Come on America, surely you don’t buy in to the crap they are selling you. For me, when someone is trying to scare me, it shows me only the weakness of their assertions.
If America is to be the beacon of hope as in the golden years of the country, we have got to get rid of the mindset that “I am more important than the least of my brothers.” The “Don’t take my tax money to help anyone but me” mentality and mantra must be shouted down by The American people. The rational people who would dismiss that ideology.
I pray for the greatest country in the world to re-discover its greatness and potential. Lord knows we can use all the help we can get. What do you think?

Our president proposes to extend the tax Bush Era tax cuts for the first $250,000 of earned income. The remaining income in excess of $250,000 will be taxed at Clinton Era levels or 3% higher than the first $250,000. Now let’s do some math, shall we? Presenting, Mr. Austan Goolsbee the White House chairman of the Council of Economic Advisors.
Henry Ford when asked why he paid his employees more than his competition. He said, to keep his best employees and so that they could afford to buy his cars. What has happened to the to the business community that once made this country great? They believed in the middle class. They had the wisdom to see that if the middle class thrives then, they will have more consumers for their products and thus increase their profits and thus increase their income.
I’ll tell you what happened to them. They left the guidance of businesses to spoiled and greedy children who know nothing of a work ethic or the value of the middle class to the country as a whole. To them the middle class are the great unwashed. “Poor people pay taxes, we don’t” This quote can be attributed to any member of the plutacracy that has evolved in this country since money has found a mate in government – goes back too far to know.
Forbes Magazine counts 403 billionaires in this country. Most of whom acquired that wealth from the decimated middle class. There are those billionaires who do good, Buffet, Gates, Winfrey. OK 3, what about the other, 400? Oh yeah and Facebook creator, Mark Zuckerburg who has found philanthropic religion since the movie about him paints him in an unflattering light. I praise him for his generosity but wonder if not for the movie…
Dammit, how much is enough? When the average American family is in many cases homeless, unemployed, and hopeless, what does the bode for the prospects of this country as a whole? I for one think that a billionaire would not even miss an additional 3% tax which gets paid by their accountants. Buffet once said he pays a lower percentage of tax on his wealth than his maid.
Sleep well, plutocrats and enjoy your wealth while you have it. Who will pay you tomorrow if you destroy your customer today? I will leave you with the following video courtesy of Mr. Alan Greenspan, former Federal Reserve chairman who oversaw our economy during the best of times, the Clinton years, for more common sense:

First of all I am New Yorker from da Bronx. I lost a close friend on 9/11. A Muslim friend. What about his family’s pain? What about mine? Oh we are people of “color” therefore nothing that matters to us matters to “them”. You know who “they” are. The people from other parts of the country bussed in to make it seem like there is this big uprising of anti-Muslim sentiment in MY town.
They do not speak for me nor, I dare say most New Yorkers. New York is the original melting pot. The home of the Statue of Liberty dammit. Do the words on her book mean nothing any more?
“Give me your tired, your poor, Your huddled masses yearning to breathe free, The wretched refuse of your teeming shore. Send these, the homeless, tempest-tost to me, I lift my lamp beside the golden door!”
Are we not who we say we are to the rest of the world. The right says they hate us for our freedom. LIES, they hate us for the hypocrisy. We say we hold religious freedom as a high ideal then persecute, Jews, Catholics, Irish, Asians, Muslims, Middle Easterners, Blacks, Mexicans and any one else who is not of Caucasian European descent. Even those Europeans from whom most of the right wing fringe are descended are held in contempt.
So much energy wasted on hate, fear, and ignorance. Here we are faced with the worst economy in decades and instead of pulling together we are looking for reasons to hate each other. This is the poison that other countries older than ours do not want polluting their cultures. Can’t say I blame them. This aspect of Americana is is the most vile and ugly side of a shining city on a hill that George Bush I believed in, That Reagan believed in. That every red blooded American Patriot still believes in.
No we are not perfect. Neither is any Family. Look at your own. We are Americans we are family. We are soo much better that what we are showing to the rest of the world. We were once the envy of the world. Our goods in demand world wide. Then we stopped making things, became our children’s friends instead of their parents, stopped demanding excellence in everything we do and the magic was lost.
I am old enough to remember those glory days when excellence in everything we did was expected like breathing. Some where along the line, money, the top 2 percent, the Skull and Bones, the robber barons, the bigots, the ignorant and the fools took over and destroyed the greatness that was once America. The America I love. An America where the Constitution is not a document to be cherry-picked apart to further one’s own narrow-minded spew; but a document to be revered, held sacred, guarded and protected to the dying breath of by those we elect to office. Hey Supreme Court, What corporation is even remotely interested in this reverence?
“I want my country back” is the rallying cry for the addle minded, bigoted, scared, sheep that the right call it’s base. Dems you are no better. You were given a mandate to get things done. To friggin fix what is broken and you allowed them to water down and de-fang everything that we asked of you in the name of this mythical allusion called bi-partisanship? Do you get it yet? They want nothing more than power back!! They will help you do nothing even to the detriment of the people they claim to represent. Do you friggin see who you are dealing with yet? Enough with the bitchassness. Start thinking for yourselves, Americans and stop swallowing the “kool-aid” that the talking point merchants keep repeating as fact and for God’s sake stop watching Fox and listening to Limbaugh. That programming has been proven to cause brain damage and and an intellectual laziness we simply can not afford to let continue.
I WANT MY COUNTRY BACK!!
The country of excellence where American exceptional-ism is not a buzz word but a fact.

So let me get this straight. All that is stopping the the “job creating top 1%” from hiring is a continuation of the Bush tax cuts for them which amount to a whopping $80,000 a year.
Excuse me? The upper 1% makes 80 grand in a day or less and this is what is stopping the hiring? they spend This income bracket had the current tax cuts in place as they drove the economy off a cliff. This cut was in place as this country hemorrhaged 500,000 jobs a month. This tax cut was in place as this bracket continued to decimate the middle class and ship jobs over seas over the last 10 years.
Now, according to Republicans, we are to believe that if we would just continue to give them $80,000 a year in a tax break they will bring back the jobs they sent away and begin hiring Americans back to fix this economy. Sorry, but I have not had a sip of the Kool-Aid they are handing out.
Blue collar whites voted in these people who tell them that this is the case. C’mon man, you are all smarter than this. You allowed them to scare you with images of illegal aliens coming into this country and taking your jobs. I am so sure that the undocumented day laborer on the corner or at the home Depot looking for work for a day is responsible for you losing the well paying manufacturing job, that got you to the middle class, that got shipped overseas, is responsible. Seriously?
You allowed them to scare you with the specter of Sharia law and the Muslim-ization of America although we already have robust Muslim communities and have had them for decades. You allowed them to tell you that the government is trying to kill grandma. You allowed them to tell you that the black guy in th3e white house can’t possibly be one of us.
You allowed an Australian born media mogul to serve you hate, fear and lies, FoxNews, and you accept it willingly because it plays on your worst fears and lowest common denominator that you share. Fear of them; the brown people, the Gay people, the woman who wants to have a choice of what to do with her own body, the Hispanics, the Middle Eastern, the black, the brown people, anyone who does not look like you.
We are about to enter a winter of discontent where nothing of any substance will get done by our government. Obstruction has been kicked up a notch with the legitimization of the Tea Baggers. You blue collar scared, narrow-minded white people will be the death of any progress in this country. You have your country back, now watch it drown.
Will you ever realize that the Fox Aussie means this country no good. He is here to make money, that is all. This is not his country, it is ours!! The current Republican leadership does not care about you. All they care about is power. The agenda was supposed to be jobs. That is what they sold you. No, the agenda is to make the black guy a one term president. How progressive!
I am calling on my blue collar white brothers and sisters who can still think for themselves to talk to the Fox zombies and explain this to them. Explain to them that the enlightened world that once respected at us is now laughing at us as the boorish, no class cowboys they portray us to be. WE CAN DO BETTER. WE MUST DO BETTER!!
