Let it Fall Off The Cliff!

I don’t know if it is because of the Holiday Season, the down after the rush or simply that I am in one of these moods where everything seems to be uninteresting. Perhaps I can attribute this feeling to being unemployed and therefore broke. I have no idea what is it, but I have not been too inspired lately.
Then, I turn the TV on and start hearing the comments from those on the Right, you know the ones… those that live in mansions and have more money than they know what to do with. I start hearing that in order for them to continue to operate their businesses they must cut the working hours of their employees.  Of course, they are not talking about the salaried employees – I am sure they would be happy to work less hours and receive the same pay – no, these sons of bitches are cutting the hours of their hourly employees, the ones that earn about $10 an hour, the ones that are struggling to survive. When asked why were they doing this, they blamed it on Obamacare. My ass, Obamacare does not go into full effect until 2014!
They are just throwing a temper tantrum because their Party LOST and the Right can’t accept defeat, they have never been able to handle it gracefully. They have a lot to learn from Democrats who have always accepted defeat with decorum, even when the win has been stolen from them as it happened in 2004.  We accept our loss, move on and set our eyes on the next election, we behave like adults, and they behave like brats. I’m sure it is very difficult for them to handle defeat when they invested so much money in their candidates’ campaigns, when they concocted every possible idea to obstruct Democrats from voting and they still lost the electoral votes and the popular votes by a wide margin. That must be a very hard pill to swallow!
I am sick that so many so-called “Americans” are signing petitions to secede from the Union. Who gives a damn about these traitors? Let them leave! It would be a much better country if they all would get a one way ticket to hell never to set foot on this land again… They are all just a bunch of losers who are so immature that they can’t even comprehend why they lost. They blame everything and anything but themselves. They fail to recognize that their actions and complete disregard of the working class, their racism and sexism, their absurd disregard about science and the environment as well as their obstructionism is what made them fail miserably and what people rejected, but they refuse to accept it or acknowledge it and even less rectify their ways.
Now, we are back again at the beginning: the fearful “fiscal cliff.” While Boehner lies with a straight face and publicly say that the Republicans are willing to work with the President to avoid a fiscal cliff, the very next day he nominates Paul Ryan, of all people, to be the lead of the fiscal negotiations with the President. We can be sure that the Republican Party is still playing the same games, the “my way or the highway” tactic. Paul Ryan is on record saying that he will not approve or agree to raise any taxes. He is all for saving money by cutting funds to “unnecessary” programs. Which programs is he talking about? That’s easy because he is quite open and blunt when it comes to his fiscal ideas, the “programs” he is willing to put on the chopping block are Medicare, Medicaid, Welfare, Social Security, Financial Aid for college Students, Education, Food stamps and any other program that was designed as a safety net for the poor. In a recent ABC interview with Jonathan Karl, Ryan had the audacity to say that the President has no mandate to increase taxes on the very wealthy, because the people retained the Republicans in the House. Not for long, I can assure you that!

These idiots have learned nothing, they refuse to recognize what the majority of the people voted in favor of, because this is not what the people that financially support them, that bought them, want to hear. The Republican Party sold their soul to the devil (Norquist) a long time ago and it’s a Party on the way to extinction unless they mend their ways.

In the meantime, the media is once more instilling fear in the American people with the financial cliff drama. The “financial cliff” is not the end of the world, actually it is a very nice and smooth ride and we should let the taxes fall off the proverbial cliff. Let them smash at the bottom into tiny pieces:

Hefty Tax Breaks were on the verge,
Hefty Tax Breaks fell off the fence,
All the rich Asses, and all the Congressmen
Couldn't put Hefty Tax Breaks together again!

Taxes will go back to how they were during the Clinton Administration. Let Congress fix the tax codes and close all the loopholes and then provide the middle-class with tax breaks in a retroactive manner. If this can’t be done, I rather not get a tax break than continue financing the rich to get more tax breaks with the excuse that they “create jobs,” they haven’t done so in over ten years.

Republicans don’t have a foot to stand on; this time around they have nothing to bargain with. The American people through their vote spoke loud and clear, we want fair taxation; it is time for every American to help move the country forward, because the working class cannot carry that burden alone!

When a Comment is Better than the Article

I've never done this before, I mean, turning into a post the comment made by someone to one of my articles; but this comment was so good, so brilliant that I decided to share it with everyone.  It is a shame that I can't give credit to the author.

November 14, 2012 11:22 PM

To the idiot states who wish to "secede:" You can't secede. And, you won't secede. You morons are merely expressing your IMPOTENT anger at President Obama’s crucial re-election. Let’s recap that: President Obama got re-elected even with all of the Republican-driven voter fraud, the Republican-driven impedance of votes, the Republican-driven dumping of millions upon millions of dollars in to the SuperPACs for the SOLE purpose of BUYING VOTES. The Reality of the situation is that your states cannot, and will not, secede.

►We reverse the situation. We, the *MAJORITY*, who voted President Obama in a SECOND TERM, demand that all persons who support secession LEAVE United States soil, NOW. Take your cancerous carcasses, your brain rot and your damaged gene pool and vacate the land mass that is the continental United States of America. It is WE, who do not want YOU HERE. YOU are no longer welcome here. GET OUT NOW.

A) While the Constitution may not expressly forbid secession, the states that were on the losing side of the Civil War had to agree to adhere—in perpetuity— to the Reconstruction requirement that they never attempt to leave again in order to be restored to the Union with full rights. On top of that, in the 1866 treaty ending hostilities between the Republic of Texas and the United States, it was made crystal clear by the treaty and presidential proclamation (and backed by Congress) that NO state can leave the Union once joining. Period.

B) In order to protect from another secession and civil war, all states had to sign permanent loyalty agreements, especially the former CSA members. Any state government that tries to secede from the Union is automatically guilty of treason and those who brought about proposed secession would be arrested, tried, convicted and executed for their treasonous activity.

C) What these idiots fail to understand is that if they even COULD secede—which they can't—THEY WOULD BE DOING THE ENTIRE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA A *HUGE* FAVOR. We would LOVE IT IF YOU DID SECEDE. I, personally, would love it even MORE if you TRIED to secede and were put on trial and executed for treason, as would happen for attempting to secede. PLEASE. Try to secede. PLEASE! :)

Let Them Secede!


Peacefully grant the State of _____ to withdraw from the United States of America & create its own NEW government

As the founding fathers of the United States of America made clear in the Declaration of Independence in 1776:

"When in the Course of human events, it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the political bands which have connected them with another, and to assume among the powers of the earth, the separate and equal station to which the Laws of Nature and of Nature's God entitle them, a decent respect to the opinions of mankind requires that they should declare the causes which impel them to the separation."

"...Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed, that whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or abolish it, and institute new Government..."
Forty-Two out of 50 states are collecting signatures to secede from the Union. You can find them at the White House Petitions Page and the signatures are growing by the minute.

I take this as a tantrum thrown by those sore losers that cannot accept having a black man running this country, and I should not waste my time on the subject but… I am fed up with their unpatriotic behavior, especially since we had to put up with their arrogance and claims of loving the country while implying that those of us that supported President Obama were traitors and unpatriotic. We put up with this crap for four long years and as it turned out, they are the ones that hate this country so much as to wish not to be part of it. I say, grant them their wish but with a twist.

Texas is a rich state, with plenty of oil and a shoreline. Texans have always considered their State as a Republic that is forced to be part of the Union but openly wanting to be a country in and by itself. Let’s grant Texas secession from the Union. Let’s give it to them. Then, every single individual that signed a petition to secede from the Union from each and every state should be stripped of their citizenship, their contributions to Social Security annulled and send them all to Texas. Needless to say that they can kiss their food stamps and welfare checks goodbye, after all, they hate “entitlements.”

These individuals will forever be forbidden to return to the United States and if they do, they will be arrested for illegally entering the country and charged with treason.

It would not be fair for those Democrats, Liberals and Conservationists that reside in the State of Texas to be stuck there, so we will grant them 6 months for them to sell their property and get their finances in order before they move to the United States.

The United States has Federal property in the State of Texas, which will remain property of the United States, such as the case with NASA until the year 2112. All military bases will be removed and all equipment, weapons and personnel should be relocated to the United States and this includes naval vessels, airplanes, helicopters, terrain vehicles, etc. All military bases should be stripped or demolished. The Republic of Texas should purchase their own stuff.

Members of Congress that wish to leave will be welcomed to do so; actually, I think we should encourage them. The same can be said about the Koch brothers, Donald Trump, Sheldon Adelson, Mitt Romney and family, Rush Limbaugh, Rupert Murdoch and everyone from Fox News.

Imagine what strides we can accomplish without all these negative people obstructing every attempt to move forward. Imagine how great this country would be without all these racist people. Imagine how peaceful we would live without these aggressive people around. The more I think of it, the more I like the idea!

We will remain with 50 States… Texas goes and Puerto Rico joins us. Long lives the United States of America!

4 More for 44... We built this!

After a year of deceptions and easily to debunk lies and when my stress levels were about to give me a heart attack, my faith in America has been restored, at least in some degree and I am glad its all over. Today is a day to celebrate, we earned this success, and we did build this!

I am glad that the majority of America was able to see through the hypocrisy and backed the man in Washington that is looking after their interests and not those of a corporation. Many will argue that President Obama is just like any other politician and that he protects corporations, I honestly don’t believe that but assuming he does he doesn’t place their interest above ours, the contrary is true.

What I am amazed and perplexed is the American decision to maintain the House of Representatives sequestered by the Republicans. It seems that two years of doing nothing while getting paid was not enough so they were rewarded with two more years of paid vacations so they can venture even deeper into all the vaginas in America. When you hear that John Boehner and Eric Cantor are still in Congress, the pathetic and the buffoon continuing to obstruct everything that will help the nation move forward, while one weeps as if he has a pubic hair caught between his balls every time he has to face the nation and while the other idiot sarcastically smiles taking pride at their strategy while America suffers is too much for me. Having to watch these two morons for at least two more years is beyond my comprehension. What were the people thinking when they re-elected them? Why are they punishing me so viciously? However, I am thrilled that Allen West was kicked out and I am ecstatic that Alan Grayson won; Florida did the right thing for once. And I am thrilled that Elizabeth Warren is back where she should be, no one fights harder for the American people as she does.

I often joke that I will run for office; I am seriously considering it now. It’s a great job don’t you think? About 3 months of real vacation, another months of holidays and you can screw up as much as you want that you will not lose your job. You see, your boss is the American people whom if you feed them enough crap they will re-elect you. It is a position with great job security, you can’t get fired and there is no 3-month probation period, you get hired and that’s it… the job is yours until you die or retire regardless of how efficiently you perform your job.

We all know that the Republicans in Washington will continue to obstruct every effort the President does to move the economy and the country forward. The obstructionist tactic didn’t place their positions in jeopardy even when polls said the people believed it was the worse Congress in history but they managed to get re-elected, so the struggle will continue. But there is one big difference this time… The President doesn’t have to worry about a re-election and they do. For now, all I care is that Democracy won and the country will move forward!

Back in Time or a Leap into the Future... Your Choice!

Tomorrow is the big day most of us in America have been anxiously waiting for. In a little over 24 hours, we will find out if we will have a new president or if our hard work and determination prevailed over the sea of deception displayed by the far right.

It will be up to women and minorities to decide whom do they trust. It will be up to them to decide if we will go forward or if we will go back in time where this same group of people had no rights and no one to defend them in Washington. But people forget, especially the young that believe they are invincible and who were not alive when women had no voice and neither did the Hispanics or the African-Americans.

Norquist, who I consider as the biggest lobbyist for the wealthy, made it very clear what he (they) expect the next Republican president to do. He actually said this to the American Conservative Union: “Pick a Republican with enough working digits to handle a pen to become President of the United States.

I don’t know about you, but after the attacks that our labor Unions have gone through I find it to be an oxymoron and offensive to have the words Conservative and Union in the same sentence.

But we must think about what the above statement from Grover Norquist means. It means that if Romney wins all he will be doing as a President will be to sign whatever the extreme conservatives want and whatever the multimillionaires that have made huge contributions to his campaign orders him to do. Does anyone here truly believe that these Multinational companies and these obscenely wealthy people care for any of us, enough to put our needs ahead of theirs? They bought him, and if Romney wins, he will have to pay them back with interest.

And that’s not all. There are 3 Justices positions that will probably become available during the next presidential term. If Romney becomes president, he will be electing the next Justices and we would have lost our voices completely. We can forget about Roe v. Wade, we can throw out the window equal pay for equal work, we can kiss goodbye to overtime pay and a 40-hour work week because that will be against those that have funded his campaign, those that bought his principles, if he ever had any.

They still believe, mainly because that is what they have grown seeing, that women are not the breadwinners, for them that’s a man’s role. They have no idea that many women bring the bacon home and believe me, it’s not a lot of bacon. But there are women supporting this man. Why? Is it the pro-life crap that made you flutter to their campaign as a moth to a light bulb? If that is why you are going to vote for him, think again. Democrats will not force you to have the child of a rapist or for you to die over the life of a fetus… Romney will. Democrats offer you a choice, Republicans a mandate. Democrats will stay away from your bedroom and your vaginas; you will have a Republican government involved in your family decisions, your bedrooms and your uterus.

Then, there is the simple fact that for the last 30 years Republicans in the White House have proven to be an economic disaster. Don’t let them brainwash you with the greatness of Reagan, they are re-writing history just as they are trying to do with George W. and with Romney’s past, Republicans are experts at re-writing stuff. During every Republican President since Nixon, the economy has not been buoyant. Every single one of them has increased the deficit and has left with an increasing unemployment rate. But Reagan is the one that began the true decadence of our economy when he began the now famous “trickle-down” economics that didn’t work then, didn’t work with any of the Bushes and it will not work in the future. If this tactic worked, we will be swimming in jobs… and we aren’t.

Hispanics, particularly old Cubans in South Florida, is another group shooting themselves in the foot. For decades they have been faithful Republicans just because they cannot forgive a Democrat for what happened to them in Bay of Pigs. They show the same cynicism as the rest of the GOP. Not accepting changes and firmly maintaining the same posture that haven’t worked for decades and that will not work in decades to come. But hate is at times more powerful than love, regardless of what romantically people tell you. No, hate is more powerful because it is damaging and it sets its roots far deeply than love does. These old Cubans couldn’t care less that if they were granted permanent asylum was thanks to a Democrat, not a Republican. They should thank Lyndon B. Johnson for that – along with Robert and Ted Kennedy and the source of Cuban’s hate, the great John Kennedy. If it were for the Republicans, these old Cubans would have been sent back to their island.

The following excerpt is from Encyclopedia.com:

The more than 25 million post-1950 immigrants, as is well known, have changed the face of America. As late as the 1950s, immigrants from Europe, who had contributed the lion's share of nineteenth-and early-twentieth century immigrants, still were a bare majority of all immigrants. By the 1980s, thanks largely to the liberal 1965 immigration act and the Refugee Act of 1980, the European share was down to about 10 percent, and immigrants from Latin America and Asia predominated. Although anti-immigrant attitudes again came to the fore in 1980s—sparked in part by Ronald Reagan's warnings about being overrun by "feet people"—and some scholars saw "a turn against immigration" and predicted effective legislative restriction of immigration, those feelings were not turned into an effective legislative consensus. At the beginning of the twenty-first century, immigration continued at a very high rate, and screening and facilitating that influx continued to be an important aspect of the work of American diplomacy.

As it is noticeable above, it was a Republican demigod the one that referred to immigrants in a demeaning way (while Cubans applauded, they loved the guy) by calling them “feet people,” implying these immigrants were so uncivilized that they wore no shoes. It was Reagan who began this openly expressed hate towards immigrants, towards those that are of Hispanic descent. But old Cubans are blinded by their hate and worship Reagan as the best of anyone from the Tea Party.

These same Cubans are now in their 70s or older and enjoying all the perks the far-Right is planning to eliminate: Welfare. Most of these Cubans enjoy receiving a supplemental check from that hateful government. They can afford to put food on the table because they get food stamps and all of them have Medicare and many enjoy Medicaid as well… Damn, they get whatever the government wants to give them and they can get their hands on!

Yet, most are voting for Romney. They swallow all the propaganda they hear at the Cuban far-Right radio stations that are shaping themselves more in tune to the likes of Rush Limbaugh. These Cubans follow like sheep, believing and not researching everything they hear. I don’t want Romney to win, but the only thing that will give me some kind of pleasure if he does, is to see these dumb asses get outraged when their “benefits” disappear as it will happen.

I’ve been writing for a while about the somber future that awaits this nation if Romney gets elected. I voted for my, for my family and for the people of America’s future. I have done my part and I hope all Democrats and Progressives do the same regardless of the long lines, the weather and the time. This only happens once every four years and you should do everything within your power to vote and offer the nation the chance to move forward and progress if you don’t, the extremist on the Right will have it their way and America will go back to a time that those that lived it, don’t wish to revisit.

With The Eyes On The Nation

Finally the end of the election cycle is near.  In three days everything will be over and hopefully President Obama will be re-elected.

I've been hearing that the House will remain hostage to the Republican Party.  That is unbelievable to me; after enduring two years of practically a stand still in Congress particularly in the House of Representatives, I can't believe the American people is going to reward these hypocrites by granting them a re-election and the control of the House to perpetuate their agenda of getting paid by the American people and not work.  I'm losing faith in the American people, I truly think that not only there is an obesity epidemic in this country, but as their bodies get fatter and fatter their brains get smaller and smaller!  

Anything is possible.  When we have a candidate such as Mitt Romney who changes opinions on political stands more often than he changes underwear.  A candidate that has been taped saying that 47% of Americans do not matter to him.  A candidate that believes the middle-class in America makes between $200,000 to $250,000 and who has made billions outsourcing jobs needed in America in order to profit from it; a candidate that  is currently under investigation for profiteering.  A candidate that lies so often that he can't recall what he stands for... when such candidate it's almost tied with President Obama one has to lose faith on the American people.  I really thought they were smarter, that they could smell or at least recognize a rat when they saw it, apparently not.

Mitt Romney - A few of his flip, flops that he can't keep track of.

If after a year of this display of double-talk, dishonesty and deception in an era where information is so readily available, the American people elect this moron as a president then this country will deserve everything that it will get.  If this happens, there will be no other valid reason other than this is and will remain for a long time a very racist country, so racist that the American people prefers to destroy the country rather than having a black man as president.  But I still have hope that President Obama will be re-elected, I have to believe that we as a country are better than that.  I have to believe that for Americans what matters most is the well being of the nation, not the color of the flesh.

Below are the speeches from President Obama during his last week of campaigning.  How can people prefer Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan and their extremism over President Obama is beyond me.

The eyes, it is said, are the windows to the soul... Looking at Mitt Romney's eyes gives me the chills because most of the times he has the gaze of a lunatic, a familiar lunatic.  The same cannot be said about President Obama's eyes, his eyes reflect the vision of a good man, an honest man and a trustworthy leader.

The Report Republicans Don't Want You To See

This is the report that was pulled out due to the pressure from the Republicans in Congress.  The reason you may ask... Well, it's quite simple: The Republicans in Congress do not want you to learn that what has been for decades their theory that Reaganomics is what creates jobs its not true.  The trickle-down theory simply does not work, it is a scam to benefit the rich.  

Their economic theories are false and the only purpose it has served is to hurt this country, the middle-class and making the gap between the middle-class and the very wealthy wider and wider while sinking the working class into poverty.  That is the Republican Party for you, their only interest is for the rich not their constituents, not "we, the people."

I decided to post it this way instead of just the link to the report (which you can find at the bottom) because I am sure that it will not be available for long.
