Are They Really This Stupid?

Today, on the website for our government’s Speaker of the House(you know, John Boner?), there is a post by Katie Boyd titled “Dems Ignore Small Biz Pleas to Stop Job-Stifling Regulations”.

John Boner should pay better attention to what gets published in his name and in the America’s Speaker of the House’s name, in America’s name.

To start with, if a business can’t stay in business without destroying the environment and the health and safety of their employees and customers, they shouldn’t be in business. It’s that simple, even for John Boner.

But, it’s not the small businesses who would benefit the most from destroying our regulations and making America into another Somalia, the multinational billionaire corporations would benefit the most.

Is John Boner representing the people of America in wanting to destroy our ability to regulate poisonous and destructive greedy corporations or is he screwing America over for the benefit of the corporations who own him?

Did you vote in the last election? If yes, good on you. If no, then YOU are the reason this country is going down the toilet. Get out there and vote and get rid of this stupid John Boner, already.

The Need for Free Media

The Need for Free Media

I got this in my email this morning. It brings to light a serious problem facing America today, something we need to fix immediately.

Hi,

The Republicans just released their budget proposal, and it zeroes
out funding for both NPR and PBS–the worst proposal in more than a
decade. We need to tell Republicans that cutting off funding was
unacceptable last time they were in charge, and it’s unacceptable now.

I signed a petition to save NPR and PBS. Can you join me at the link
below?

Thanks!

This is another shocking example of how the Republican party is against so many of the fundamental principles of our country. The need to protect the free press is one of the most important fundamental principles of America’s freedoms. But, today, we no longer have a free press.

In today’s environment, almost all the news Americans get is biased by multi-billion dollar news corporations and presented by millionaire news casters. This is exactly what our founding fathers didn’t want to have happen.

That is why they put the press in the constitution, the only industry explicitly referenced in the constitution. Still, the Republicans want to do away with the few remaining threads of our free press.

In a time when our information is being purposely polluted, we need to protect the truly impartial news sources that are not influenced by big money or politics. That is why we need news sources that are wholly funded by our taxes and not relying on donations from people and big unethical businesses.

Our free press, such as NPR and PBS, is not perfect and still rely too heavily on big money donations from businesses, but we need to fix it by funding them enough so they aren’t influenced by corruption and we need to vote out any political party that wants to destroy our last chance of a free press.

So, how much money will it cost you, personally, to help fund our free press? The amount is truly pennies each year. So, why would a political party want to save you pennies while expecting you to pay thousands for welfare for the billionaires in tax cuts? Well, you know why.
