U.S. Politics

"Boy, your spine is as crooked as a politician!"

(Originally published 2-18-2012) Irregardless of the stock market (yet another scam on the working class) or the current state of political discourse.  Well it is obvious to most real thinking people that are willing to look at truth as opposed to a rationalized 'truth' that strokes their own narrow perception of the world!

DemocratsOur Congress has shown the world that they are perfectly willing to not govern as a democratic nation and will (as stated in public by a number of Senators and House Reps, like Mr. McConnell) not only hold the American public hostage but will extort them through minority rule, in a non-democratic fashion from now on and that their only purpose or number one goal is to defeat the opposition party incumbent! This of course, would be far more important and to this group, this affiliation, this political party is in fact far more important than governing the country and taking care of its citizens.

Thank you nut cases (and those idiots that helped elect them to office) in Congress and the (new) Republican partyrepub symbol for spotlighting an air of distrust, dishonesty and corruption in governing the worlds greatest democracy.

(to be continued...)

Is this the battle to control the Internet or is it something more?

Let's face it, our political system is one big mess!  Conflicts of interest are just the tip of the iceberg - not that that is anything new.  It's just that it has become a problem again along with the level of discouse, the unashamed, unabashed, unadultrated lying by our political leaders, the authoritarian leanings of our Congress and a general lack of integrity - the likes we've haven't seen in quite some time now. 

Most are saying, "let's wait and see what happens with this new administration" but it will be no surprise as to what is going to happen. Perhaps the specific details are yet to be observed but the general sense that things will come unhinged seems to be a sure thing.

Until "the people" demand that their political leaders (to start with) must have integrity, display honesty and work for their constituency we are doomed to fail. There are enough "people" that want and see what is required but I fear that we as a people will suffer before anything is done. Let's hope it ain't too late...

The power given to some conservative governor’s to appoint “emergency managers” is one of the most insidious and anti-democratic.  Not only is it un-democratic, but it is  the way in which republican Michigan legislators usurped voter majority after having emergency manager legislation defeated by voters - they presented a new bill that they made sure could not be in essence defeated by public vote.  They did this by presenting the new bill which would reinstate emergency managers but they also added a small fiscal appropriations which in effect makes the new legislation “voter proof”! (spending bills cannot be vetoed by public vote)

In truth our politics have always been contrary to our morality and ethics as a society, but in our current, modern, supposedly enlightened society the guy running for President of the United States is an utter embarrassment!  How can what seems to be a minority have raised up this candidate that represents everything we abhore in an individual?  What in god’s name can the Republican’s be thinking?  The idea that they would support and back a man who is clearly so utterly unqualified to be President is confounding at best and in the end they will hopefully pay dearly. (not a likely consequence these days where no one is held accountable – kind of a Ronald Reagan thing isn’t it?)

So, like everyone else let’s go through the litany of absurdities this “guy” has bombarded the public with – some folks fondly appreciative but I would like to think those are in the minority.
