7 October 2014. Here’s Another Reason to Vote AGAINST the Republicants This November

00 Monthly change in US employment. 07.10.14

00 Political Cartoon. 08.12. Deficit. FDR quote

______________________________

The Great Depression of 2008 (for that is what it is) was a direct result of Republican policies. The Bushies went to war… they CUT taxes on the wealthy and corporations… the only groups that profited from the Bushie drive for global hegemonism. Wars are inordinately expensive, and seven years of war in DISTANT foreign parts crashed the economy (the more distant the theatre of operations, the more expensive it is to ship supplies to the front… QED). You’ll note that the economy improved after Obama took over. Mostly, he curbed the wars… but that may downturn with the latest military adventurism. However, that may only be a pre-election ploy… Obama doesn’t want to appear “weak”, so, he’s doing goofy things like propping up the fascist junta in Kiev and making grand noises about Iraq. A friend of mine in the District said that it may go away after the election (“That’s why Putin isn’t concerned. He knows that Obama needs to do things before the election to ensure that the Republicans don’t win”). In short, Obama may retrench military threats after the political threat from the GOP is over. After all, he did so in Syria last year, and the world is better off for it.

Don’t vote Republican. If you want to know what GOP policies would do to this country, look at the Ukraine. The oligarchs sucked the country dry and the only reason that it lingered on for 23 years was Russian subsidies… no lie… the Svoboda pigs postured because of cheap Russian gas and Russian involvement in the economy. The Republicans want the same here… a feral, heartless, and greedy society… with them saying, “That’s the way the world is… there’s nothing that anyone can do about it”. Of course not… like Bill Kristol, Rod Dreher, Ann Coulter, and Victor Potapov, they’re above the median in income… “To hell with you, if you were any good, you’d be as ruthless, and be as successful”.

Vote against EVIL… vote AGAINST Republicans. They crashed the economy once to enrich their plutocrat bosses… do you want to let them do it again?

12 June 2012. What the Bush Spending Toot and Tax Cuts Did to the US Space Programme

______________________________

This is a landing of a Russian Soyuz TMA capsule in Kazakhstan. Three cosmonauts were on board… one Russian, one American, and one Japanese. At present, the only way that US cosmonauts can get into space is to go aboard a Russian craft. Why? To put it plainly, the wastrel spending of the Bush administration, combined with its irresponsible tax cuts to the least productive (and most parasitical) part of the population, meant that NASA was starved of funds, to pay for Bush’s incessant warmongering in foreign parts. Ergo, whenever you pass a McMansion in the exurbs, you’re looking at what the Republican Party prefers to scientific exploration and research, education, and healthcare. After all, the common welfare of humanity doesn’t put money in their pockets. Here’s the kicker… they think that they’re doing society a favour.

Don’t argue with them… just remember this picture. THIS is what the American space programme came to, and we have George W Bush to thank for it.

2 August 2011. RIA-Novosti Infographics. The Top 20 Debtor Countries

Which country throws bombs around like confetti and then “pays” for it with “plastic” so that the rich can have hefty tax cuts? It’s NOT Russia! Hmm… who’s the “rouge nation?” I’d say it was the one that drops bombs for no good reason all over the world and kicks two million families out on the street at home so that the swinish oligarchs can party on undisturbed. I wonder what country that one is? I don’t think that you have to guess hard, do ya? You know its “face”… how d’ya spell “P-A-L-I-N?” Or, how ’bout “M-U-R-D-O-C-H?” Toss your pinch of incense on the Altar of the Almighty Dollar and do a reverence before the icon of Ayn Rand… Paul Ryan, Michelle Bachmann, and Glenn Beck do! It’s the AMERICAN thing to do!
