Conventional Wisdom on Same-Sex Marriage: Live with it!

By RF Schatten


We're not in Kansas anymore, Toto...the world is rapidly changing...you got those who believe in the evolution of man, in progressing as human beings, seeking answers and finding ways to make this, a better world. The better it is, the more people accept it and decide to find ways to cohabitate with each other...and it doesn't matter what God you believe in...they all say the same thing; Peace on earth and goodwill to others. As Khalil Gibran said: "We are all sons of one religion, and it is the Spirit".

Then you got those who would rather remain their entire lifetime, their minds, their entire progression of life...as a status quo. It's 2014!...but for them it's the 1950s, for some even longer. The one reality in life is: you can't turn the clock back! No matter how many laws are passed to stop the progress, our society has made...it will not stop the American people from achieving their goals! We've gone way beyond how to stop social mores...and more, on how to improve our quality of life. A little happiness within a society goes a long way.

But you will always find those who refuse to accept the fact, that the majority of this country do not agree or accept their ideology...those in self-denial, who use religion as a way out for bigotry. They have the right to believe whatever they want, but...they can live in their own little world...they just do not have the right to impede the progress of the rest of our Nation! They will continue to argue forever! as the world passes them by...and all you can do is look...what a waste of resources, talent, and humanity!

The GOP Women: Like a battered housewife...living in an illusion, or enjoying their degradation by the Grand Old Party

By RF Schatten


A Political Party in desperate need of Cognitive Behavioral Therapy. The GOP insists that they don't have a "War on Women", yet they oppose every single Woman's issue around! Why not protect women rights?

Why doesn't the GOP believe in equal rights for women...not just Equal Pay...but total equal rights? And then they come out with all the classic horseshit, on why they believe that it's in everyone's self-interest to control one's body. They are a shameless bunch of degenerate shriveled up old men...to them, women will never be equal. Naturally, that Legislation appears to be written by the Koch Industry Lobby...it's part of their personal philosophy...Mitch McConnell has openly admitted that the GOP is beholden to David and Charley. So why would it surprise anyone that the current GOP's platform, is a quick reminder of shades of the John Birch Society?

Why would the GOP decide to openly oppose the women's Paycheck Fairness Act"...less than 90 days before the Elections? Seems like one very stupid move, especially since the overwhelming majority of Americans...and the majority of GOP Women...support the right of Women to make their own self-determination. Having control of a Woman's body is an immoral human act...those who favor such despicable behavior are the same hypocrites that talk about the evils of Government, being on everyone's back and their intrusion upon the American Public.

Gynophobia, and the Republicans' Fear of an all Female Sweep

By RF Schatten


It appears the GOP's bubble has burst on "Women"...a subject that gives Mitch McConnell nightmares...and just won't go away. A 73-25 Vote to break the initial Filibuster, looks pretty piss poor for bunch who pride themselves for being, Gynophobic...would've expected a larger fight from these old white male 'chauvinist pigs'. That sounds like the 60s and 70s...Margaret Chase Smith, Shirley Chisholm, Geraldine Ferraro, and in particularly, Bella Abzug and Betty Friedan, are all looking down with a big smile from heaven, and saying; "It's about time!"

Could it be that 2014 might very well be, the 'Year of the Woman' in Politics?...and with the lack of women in the GOP that could cause louder sound-bytes, than Sarah and Michele...they will cowardly exit on 'that' subject almost right away, specially with such a short time for people to forget, what they really stand for. The names of Lundergan Grimes, Nunn, Davis, and Burke, are the current thorns in the GOP's behind. And in West Virginia, whoever wins that seat...will be a woman, too! Women from both Parties are quickly moving up in State and Federal Politics...and men, can't hold them back anymore...just sit and watch.

They're losing their own war on women, besides all other issues...so why are Republicans being so Gynophobic? Maybe it's their own self-denial that women can perform as good, or better than a man?...or maybe these big macho Republicans, feel emasculated by Women? Either way, they can't seem to get it...they're not in their 'perfection' of the 1950s anymore, there's no Pleasantville...and June Cleaver was just a Black and White fictional mom, who only wore ruffled aprons on camera!

The GOP's selling of America...it's all about the $$$

By RF Schatten


"We have fallen heirs to the most glorious heritage a people ever received, and each one must do his part if we wish to show that the nation is worthy of its good fortune" ~~ Theodore Roosevelt

Teddy Roosevelt believed in the Preservation of our natural lands and resources, habitats...the preservation of what God put on this earth, for us to cohabitate with. He also knew the dangers that man could acquire and ultimately use against their own nations; "The things that will destroy America are prosperity-at-any-price, peace-at-any-price, safety-first instead of duty-first, the love of soft living, and the get-rich-quick theory of life" He was a good prognosticator!...he also left the Republican Party, and was never proven wrong for it.

Today, the Grand Old Party...under the facade of Tea Bags...are pushing their own agenda. The auctioning of Public Land, and the screwing of the Conservation Legacy of Teddy Roosevelt. They could care less about our waters...the lakes and the streams...let them get polluted as much as they want. They 'are' the legacy of Ronald Reagan's life...his dedication on the destruction of the Great Society...first, his ambitious dismantling  of the American Labor movement, his approval for the deregulation of the Air Traffic Controllers. Approving the atmosphere of Corporate Greed, with his "screw everybody" mentality...just look at Michael Malkin...the true life Gordon Gekko. Ronnie also made it fashionable to lie to Congress, by never "recalling" anything he did...like $$$ laundering the Contra Rebels...and allowing the flow of drugs into this country, even, while his wife and her program was saying; "Say no to Drugs", he was a true political degenerate and hypocrite.

Koch Industries' public court records are there for your inspection. All the polluting fines by the EPA, and the wrongful death lawsuits that have run into the multi-millions of dollars...the GOP wants to eliminate the EPA!!  Surprised? Who benefits from the Keystone Pipeline? could it possibly be Koch Pipeline Company LP? Who benefits from selling America's Beauty?...They talk about returning the land to the States...and Auction it off to the highest bidder, to generate $$$ to pay off our debts. Doesn't sound like the State will get much shit out of that whole deal!! It's all about the Corporations buying this country up. Why not? they outsource the jobs to other countries with cheaper labor, use loopholes to avoid paying taxes, stick all their private wealth in offshore banks, and now they're are moving their "Corporate Filings" out of the country to evade even more taxes...like Burger King. Talk about greed!!

It's no surprise that every single issue in the GOP's agenda, has come out of David Koch's political playbook, when he ran as the Libertarian Party's VP candidate. It's well documented how they feel about selling off Public Land for private profit. It also is no coincidence that all 13 Members of Congress that want that legislation to pass, are fully paid and owned by the Koch Brothers.

US Congress, and its resemblance with the House of Lords...no commoner there!

By RF Schatten


The Rich get richer...while everyone else awaits for that trickle, to some day come down. 'That' trickle is what the GOP has been doing to this country, everyday...I call it pissing on your constituency! Darrell Issa, the wealthiest of them all, estimated at a net worth of nearly $357.3 million in 2013. In fact, the majority...268 of the 534 members of Congress...have a net worth of $1 million or more!! For the 1st time ever...millionaires hold a majority in Congress...the 1% Caucus!

Do they care about those less fortunate? Issa is an Army Vet, and voted against the VA!...he doesn't need it, he has the best Insurance the Taxpayers can buy, for these slimeballs...plus his own! (think about it folks...we, the taxpayers pay for Federal Elected Officials' Salaries, Travel expenses, and Insurance Plans, which are considered "top of the line plans" ...but the average citizen has to pay a higher premium than Congressmen do...for a worse plan, or get Medicaid and/or Medicare. We're paying for their Insurance while we get screwed out of ours!!). This professional slimeball also believes in the repeal of the minimum wage...and why should he give a shit?? He makes more than a million dollars a day!!

It's all the indifference and the arrogance aristocracy has always held over all lower classes. You wonder why the economy, taxes, wages, cost of living, education, and the quality of life is stacked against you?? They make Laws to benefit themselves...or do you really believe that from the kindness in their heart, they're doing all this for us?? Who's living the good life, freeloading on the Taxpayers expense?...without even needing to touch their own $$$. That's Mitt Romney and David Koch's world!

Wealth controls this Nation, whether you like it or not. We created this system...and we have to live with it unless we do something about it...and if you don't like it? vote all this scum out!! We pay them, they're 'our' civil servants!!

The Problem Fix? Civil Service is a commitment in which every citizen, should contribute their services towards their country...not a professional job!! An elected official, applied for the job voluntarily and got it...he shouldn't be doing it, for the $$$ and the retirement perks and benefits, which he gets after 2 terms (4 years)...even if he loses afterwards, and never heard of again!

If all Senators and Reps, want those jobs to "do what's best for America"...they have money!!...make all elected officials work at Minimum Wage, not $174,000/yr or the Speaker's $223,500/yr... give them the same Health Benefits the Government gives the minimum wage workers...and take away their "Frequent Flyer Miles" that the taxpayers are forking over...just for them!! Let them fly coach, or take the Greyhound!!

The November 4th Battle: Apathy vs. Ignorance

By RF Schatten


It's about time, the Democrats stop apologizing for all the GOP's "Callous Policies". Why should Debbie Wasserman Schultz be reprimanded for using a figure of speech to criticize Scott Walker? Walker is the most corrupt, dishonest Governor in the country, openly corrupt! often publicly bragging about it. This is the guy who sold his Governorship, and Wisconsin to the Koch Brothers...remember when he got punked by Ian Murphy? He never denied, what he said during the Phone Conversation...he was caught "Live" on the air!. Then you wonder why this scumball is in one Legal mess and scandal, after another.

The fact that Wasserman Schultz likened Walker's leadership to domestic violence abuse? It was 'noted' that throughout the prank call, the "Governor maintained his appreciation for and their 'commitment' to civil discourse". Apologize? apologize??...when has the Republican Party ever apologized for the indecency and total disrespect their members have towards the President? For all the indecent and racist comments said every single day of the year, by cynical hypocrites on the Right...and their fanatically ignorant minions on the Far Right!!
Why is it expected for the DNC to apologize, when the RNC and their supremely smug leader, Reince Priebus...never apologizes for anything? If they don't care about sinking this country, why should they care about a little political theater? Ahh! it's election season!!

Debbie Wasserman Schultz did something that lacks heavily within the Democratic Party, the 'cojones' to stand up and say what the vast majority of this country feels!! The Democrats, are currently the Party of Apathy and Spineless Cowards who refuse to stand by their leader on issues that they elected him to accomplish...like Healthcare and Immigration. They lack that fighting spirit for what they believe in...maybe too much youthful idealism, and not enough pragmatic thinking...the Dems have to stick it right back in their opponents face and beat them at their own game! You can't run elections in a civil manner anymore...you're not dealing with Political Statesmen, you're dealing with Political Charlatans, quacks...and their ignorant legion of followers, who will try to deny your vote, at any cost.

This coming November, we have a major political battle: Apathy versus Ignorance. If the majority of Democrats come out and vote, they can't lose...if they stay home? don't criticize the outcome, just because their ignorance rubbed on you!!


DNC Refuses to Apologize for DWS' Comments, Says GOP Has 'Callous' Policies

Like Father, like Son. You 'do' get an Education...about the Cruz Family

By RF Schatten


Raphael Bienvenido Cruz, a "Guzano"...a Cuban who trash talks tough against his Government, but quietly crawls out of the country without notice. In Senior's case, this character was a Castro ally, who left Cuba at the age of 18, after supposedly fighting alongside Castro...at the age of 14. He left in 1957, so that puts him in 1953...at the Moncada Barracks Attack. History has recorded every person who was there...either killed or captured...a trial that lit the flames for the 26th of July Movement, and with Castro as an attorney...defended himself...his famous 4 Hour Closing Speech? "History will absolve me". 'That' folks, was the start of the 26th of July Cuban Revolution. Well? he's not dead, or served any prison time with Castro. Any Cuban who seriously keeps up with Cuban History, knows who served time with Fidel, Raul, Juan Almeida, and company...or just look it up in your local library. Daddy-O! you're not in it. Mi hermano! eres un descarado!

He eventually immigrated to Canada, then moved to the United States and got himself a mail order Minister's diploma from a Cracker Jacks Diploma factory. Now he's the Far Right's anointed 'voice', for all their Religious intolerance...the voice of a true Charlatan, a quack spewing his bull with the grace of a TV Minister. With all the closet dramas of the younger ones, and the obvious embarrassing senility of the older ones, Raphael 'Daddy' Cruz's ministry has become a darling bright spot, for those who fancy Tea.

The all seeing wise Christian, who has openly stated that Ted's the messiah...hand picked by God himself! when he was born...to save the world from the Anti-Christ (you know who!), and the return of an all Christian Nation...which it never has been. Now, he's going to "Educate" the "American Negro" in History and in American Racism...a Cuban immigrant by way of Canada, teaching African-Americans about African-American History and Racism? This is the same wise man who said, he didn't know in his teens that Castro was a Communist. Neither did the Cuban Communist Party, who didn't trust him dating back to the mid 30's...and didn't give him any support, financial or human, till 6-8 weeks before the end of the war. Castro himself, didn't come out till a few years later.

Ted Cruz is a true aberration in politics...a true enigma of a man.  He's not stupid...you can't be, to earn the credentials and College Degrees that he has...yet, he finds a way to appear Ignorant most times...ignorant enough to piss-off his own Republican colleagues. Is he a smart book guy? get straight A's and graduate with all the honors you want...then go to work, and you suck? or is he just playing with your mind, acting as if he was ignorant...manipulating himself for a different time or different occasion? Either way, one thing about Ted Cruz...his immoral character. Instead of trying to educate something he doesn't have a clue about, educate his son on Morals, since he's a 'moral' Christian and a man of God, now.  How can Senior teach Junior morals...when Junior is just a reflection of Senior?

Ted Cruz: The Perfect Demagogue...no compassion, and your consummate Liar

By RF Schatten


He's an American Political Aberration...if there's a bit of controversy, you'll find Ted Cruz lurking around, or almost certainly...in the center of it all. How can't you have a week pass without Ted Cruz getting into the media spotlights? He lives for controversies...the
ultimate political publicity hound.

When it comes to making friends and influencing people, Rafael Jr. needs to read the book. The psychobabble he spews to his fanatical flock of flunkies is classic demagoguery...you got to admire him for 'that'...he's the GOP's #1 star politico, when it comes to bashing opponents or causes. He also ranks among its biggest fools...often embarrassing himself, his Party, or both.
From the man who brought you today's cheap version of Tail Gunner Joe, with his own witch hunts for Commies and Terrorists...they never amount to anything, but he gets his sound bytes and photo-ops. This character seriously wants to sell all of America's Public
Lands...he's proposed legislation on it. Nothing will come out of it, either, but he got another 5 minutes on the nightly news!

His public rudeness, lack of respect to everyone who's not a phony Christian like him, his lack of humility, and his total lack of personal moral values; a Canadian who wants to sell America's Lands...will never get him elected President...his ability to make himself look like a total fool, doesn't help either. "Worth noting, Dallas has a worse murder rate than the Bronx" tweeted John DeSio, spokesman for Bronx Borough President, Ruben Diaz. Another embarrasing moment for the GOP, because of Raphael "Ted" Cruz. Diaz said; "Cruz needs to grow up". John McCain would say; take his toys away, and send him to his room. Like John, many in the GOP are tired of his negative antics...but hey! live with
it...he's just voicing the GOP agenda!

Why Texas Education continues to fail...you have to think, idiot!

By RF Schatten


I presume that Judge John Dietz, is a 'Critical Thinker'. They say, it's a devastating loss for Greg Abbott and his agenda on the systematic dismantling of the Public School System in Texas. In the ruling, the Judge explains; "The evidence clearly establishes that local districts do not have meaningful discretion in the levy, assessment and disbursement of property taxes; therefore the Texas school financing system imposes an unconstitutional state property tax.”...translation...the Texas State's School Financing System, is Unconstitutional!

Greg Abbott wants to continue all the excellent failures that Texas has become in Education...50th in the Nation in High School Graduations for 10 straight years...between 2001-2010. His experiment with a Charter State School System, was knocked down by someone, who's allowed to think. Greg Abbott wants to outlaw "Critical Thinking" and Analysis in the entire Texas School System, or as it's called Texas Education Agency, that's TEA for short...and along with his Tea drinking buddies, have made it part of almost all the State's local school boards agenda. The Master Plan of the Tea Party in the Lone Star State: Get rid of Critical Thinking, then get rid of Public Education. The least education our future generations have, the better! why? because that's what they're told...remember, most of these people have less education than their kids. In their minds, their kids can be as stupid as 'they' are. If it's fine for them...why should their kids be smarter?

This is what Abbott's moral character is all about...to keep the masses as ignorant as possible, while preaching hatred and fear of Gays, Blacks, Hispanics, and all Ethnic and religious groups...including all non-conservative Christians. His own master plan also includes the legal control of Women Rights in Texas. A hypocrite, whose wife is Hispanic. But, he has the solid backing of the Tea Party...and their 'Brawny' benefactors...the stupids and their minions, with Master Puppeteers, pulling all their strings from the shadows. I wonder how much string he has left?...with Wendy Davis outraising him in donations...and running up his butt, and around the corner wherever he turns? Can't wait for the Debate!!

Court Humiliates Greg Abbott (Again) And Crushes his Unconstitutional Attack on Public Education
