Thinking With a Vacuum

Thank you, David, for the link to Weyrich. I clicked on some of his other idiotic comments on Youtube and came across this gem. In a nutshell, this quote exemplifies the vacuous logic of the conservatives. Watch this.

Pay attention to his complete lack of congruency. See if you can spot it.

Let me help you out if you haven’t spotted it.

First, notice how he admits that the patriot act was an awful, frightening, bad bill that “they” pushed through. There was no admitting that it was his conservatives in the Republican Party who did this, but no, it was “they”. I’m not able to read his mind but it’s really hard for me to even believe that he even considered the fact that his ideas and the evils he has support were responsible for this disaster called the patriot act.

Next, notice how he says that it’s okay since his people are in charge but if Hillary got in power she would be arresting conservatives using the patriot act. Well, the Democrats haven’t been arresting any terrorist conservatives using the patriot act. In my opinion, the conservatives who were using terror to try to influence the 2004 election (you know the ones, Bush, Cheney, and Ashcroft) should all be behind bars right now. But, no, not only are they careful not to abuse the patriot act, they’re even wimps when it comes to addressing the crimes of the conservatives. Still, he says that his people are only arresting the terrorists as if there were no innocent people in Guantanamo.

The flow of the entire rant was from pointing out how someone else passed the patriot act and his people were only doing good and not abusing it and putting in a sunset provision and how bad it will be if anyone else uses the powers.

This disconnect from reality is a disease that I see over an over in dealing with republicans. They can’t govern and then are so worried about how someone else might govern.

If a candidate thinks the government can do no good, for God’s sake don’t let him prove it by getting elected. Elect someone who believes we the people can run a successful government.

What Makes a Republican

What Makes a Republican

Having read over many of the posts here, I find that I’m more than a bit miffed by the civil discourse that the writers demonstrate only to be shunned or attacked by republicans who come here and cry about being called out on their deplorable actions. This isn’t a time to all sit around and sing Kumbaya. The republican party is tearing this country apart and it’s time we all started telling it like it really is.

There’s also no benefit in sitting around and psychoanalyzing the republicans. You can trust me on this. There are three kinds of people who are republicans.

  1. Greedy selfish brats salivating at the thought of getting rich off the ashes of America. This described almost every blasted republican in Congress. You can’t possibly defend the position that they believe it is in America’s best interests to become a backwater banana belt third world country. All they care is that they and their friends get rich.
  2. Head-in-the-sand idiots. This is the typical republican voter. They won’t ever be rich and the know it. They’ll be lucky to still have a job come dinnertime tonight. They’ll be lucky if the democrats win because they don’t know how to plan for their future. This is obvious by the way they vote, always looking for ways to vote against their best interests. The states that need the most federal assistance money are the red states who complain that someone but them is getting assistance. These simple folks are the easy fools the republican party exploits without mercy. They get what they deserve, but America doesn’t deserve them.
  3. Frightened little people. This is a sad slice of America who are so easily controlled by their fear. These are the people who kept voting republican every time Bush upped the terrorist threat level. They were getting played and everyone knew it. Now all they can do is stop from wetting themselves. They’ll never vote for a democrat because they’re too afraid.

The republican party is solely responsible for the dismal state of this nation. It has been many decades of republicans and republican policies that have gotten us in this mess and it will take a bigger and stinker mess before Americans learn their lessons. But, as they say, America is waking up!

Playing Politics With Our Country

Playing Politics With Our Country

Another Republican lie stunk up my mail box again today. It’s sickening how corrupt the Republican party has become. They will lie and lie and lie and fools never cease to believe them. Today’s mail was from Americans for Tax Reform. Sounds like a real grass roots organization doesn’t it?

So, exactly who are these “American”? Let’s take a quick look at their website and the front page is dedicated to a big banner of Obama and the words, “Countdown to the biggest tax increase in American history.” Seem pretty impartial, doesn’t it? They’re all for a flat tax. Remember the flat tax? That’s the tax where the poor pay the taxes for the rich. So a quick trip to sourcewatch and we see that they’re funded by millionaires and the tobacco industry. Oh yes, we want them influencing our elections don’t we?

So from this little bit of investigation anyone with even half a brain can tell you that the ad will be about as truthful as a tobacco advertisement. Cool, yet mild. The garbage mail says that Harry Reid played politics with our health care. Imagine that! Harry Reid tried to do something to fix out broken health care against the opposition of the entire republican congress. Good for Harry. Then the ad says, “… hurting Nevada’s seniors.”

Oh, yes, doing something to fix our broken health care system some how hurts seniors. What kind of a retard would ever believe this crap? Really? OH, that’s right, a republican voter and a tea bagger.

Sick party isn’t it?

Will You Stand Up for America’s Survival?

Will You Stand Up for America’s Survival?


A heartfelt howdydoo. This is my first post to Just-Say-Why so here’s a quick introduction. I’m over 60, I am comfortable on a computer and on the internet. I don’t hate gays, I’m not afraid of words like socialism, and my political views are based on the individual issues rather than party line.

Today, I got a political ad from an association called The 60 Plus Association which claimed to be non-partisan but wants me to call Harry Reid’s office and complain about “ObamaCare”. What idiot would believe this is a non-partisan organization. Looking at their website, I see a bunch of pictures of old farts sitting around. But, Googling the organization, I see from Wikipedia that they’re really a conservative group funded by “Pharmaceutical Research and Manufacturers of America.”

Imagine that! A big pharma organization sending misleading advertisements to older citizens telling them to call our government and complain about our ONLY serious law to protect us from the blood suckers.

I ask, what do you take me for? An effing retard or a republican?

See where they get their money from, and
See what others have to say about these ethical conservatives.
