22 December 2012. The “Tea Party Patriots” Called the Late Senator Inouye “Irresponsible”… I DO Beg to Differ

00 Tea Party propaganda. 22.12.12

______________________________

The so-called “Tea Party Patriots” preferred the coward Willard Romney to the war hero Daniel Inouye. If that isn’t indicative of skewed standards and turning things on their heads, I don’t know what it is. Senator Inouye served in combat and was maimed in the service of his country, but the “Tea Party Patriots” hated him for his defence of the social safety net, his dogged fight for equal rights for ALL Americans, and for his willingness to admit America’s sins. Rather, the “Patriots” lionised Willard Romney, who had his megabucks corporate daddy buy him a spurious “clergy” deferment during the Vietnam War, who hides his money in overseas tax shelters (increasing all of our taxes), who sent and sends American jobs to China, and who wanted to waste trillions on warmongering in foreign parts. There’s something basically wrong and perverted with such thinking…

Lincoln, TR, RockyIke, Jake JavitsGerald Ford, and Bob Dole… their centrist/moderate Republican Party no longer exists. The Tea Party Patriots and their ilk are Hard Right feral beasts, intent on ravening this country (indeed, the whole world) for their personal profit and benefit. That’s EVIL beyond measure… and there’s no more to be said on such, is there? Ye cannot serve both God and Mammon… and don’t forget Who said that…

31 August 2011. Conservatism, or, the Tea Party… Which Do You Prefer?

TR… a TRUE conservative… and he was friends with John Muir, too (oh, dear… get the smelling salts… Whiteford and JP just fainted)…

The great corporations, which we have grown to speak of rather loosely as trusts, are the creatures of the State, and the State not only has the right to control them, but it is duty bound to control them wherever the need of such control is shown.

Recently, a friend sent me this one:

The USGS has determined that the epicentre of the Virginia earthquake was in a graveyard just outside of DC. The cause appears to be our Founding Fathers rolling over in their graves.

That’s not only a “funny”… it’s morbidly true. Eric Cantor claimed that “cutting taxes and easing regulations” would bring in a New Age of Sweetness and Light. (see: http://news.yahoo.com/gop-jobs-plan-104000591.html). Here’s the deal… you can follow TR or you can follow Eric Cantor. The first made it clear that business had to heed government; the latter makes it clear that government should suck up to the corporations and toady to their rapacious bosses. The first was in sync with the Founding Fathers… Eric Cantor isn’t. Why aren’t responsible and sane Republicans speaking up? The Iron Chancellor put it this way:

Courage on the battlefield is common enough, but you’ll often find that quite respectable people lack civil courage.

Otto von B nailed that one to the wall (he was also the Father of Single-Payer Healthcare and Extended UI Benefits, for your info)! If responsible Republicans continue their silence towards the Tea Party, the Rightwing Media Machine, and Talk Radio, one has to assume that they agree with them, deep down. Stand up or shut up, I say. It’s what I do… I practise what I preach…
