The perpetual War...and the perpetual eludible Peace

By RF Schatten



Contrary to the belief that it's a good thing to continue a war, till one side, stops continuing to exist...there's no "Good War"...they, stop existing after WWII, as Studs Terkel elegantly wrote.
Ever since then, all we've had, are wars for profit...Ike warned us of the Military Industrial Complex, and Kennedy got suckered in. He realized it was a mistake, and decided to get out...but Dallas blocked those plans. How about under the table deals, involving the trade of Arms for Drugs...or giving WMD's and Chemical Weapons, to combat Iran and the Ayatollah. Still amazed, where the hell did Saddam ever hide whatever he had left...not counting what he used on the Kurds and the Shiites? And how about the Soviet Union? To every Russian, Afghanistan is 'their' Vietnam...the first time the staunchly proud Soviet Red Army, ever retreated from a battle. And who in the Mujahedin received an order of endless supplies of care packages, via FedEx/CIA next day air, to wipe out the Russkies? Osama what's his name!!...and you know his fate, too.

America is no Saint in the act of War and Politics...with that in mind, neither is anyone else...we're all sinners. We shouldn't get hysterical with the antics between the US, the United Nations, Russia, Israel, and Palestine...at the end, we're the ones with our blood pressure, up the roof...and 'they' don't give a shit!! What can we do? use the intellect God gave us, and find tangible working solutions that will inspire you're favorite politicos...the most basic way of citizens, exercising their voice...activism at its best.  
This is not an issue of Political Parties...Presidents, Administrations, both Republicans and Democrats...all are guilty!! But, what are 'you' going to do about it, right at this time? Good for a National Discourse, but it's not stopping the killings. As bad as it is...it can get even worse. The GOP wants some sort of confrontation...no coincidence...so does the Military Industry Lobby. Again, all Political and Big $$$.

War is inhuman, a morally dishonorable act fought by honorable men..."Peace" is the only humane alternative, to the constant killing of generations after generations of families...reason has to eventually, win out...prey that's sooner, rather than later. But that's a big expectation!!

The GOP's shameless lack of humility towards Children...and other living things

By RF Schatten



We condemn other countries...even condemn President Obama about killing civilians...yet we don't condemn Israel. Why?

Sen. Mark Kirk (R-IL) insisted he was totally comfortable, with Israel killing thousands of civilians in the current war...if it meant wiping out Hamas. "It's worth it", said Kirk. This 'warning' to the President...is it suppose to instill fear on Obama? because if they think, they're going to manipulate a "Low Poll Ratings" President...don't underestimate Barack Obama. Low Poll ratings tend to rise in times of crisis...as it did for another one, on a sunny Sept.11th morning...things, tend to turn around rather quickly. Republicans are playing with fire...and in an election year? it looks like a death wish.

To make a long story, short. The GOP does not want anyone to negotiate a Peace Treaty...allow one side to systematically, destroy the other...while condemning the other, for everything that's happened. They believe in the total annihilation of a political/para-military organization...the overthrow of a Government, along with as many civilian deaths as it takes...without ever the thought, that Hamas is a an organization, that like all other Middle Eastern entities, self-replenishes. They're not going away, ever!! while legalized violence towards human beings, exist...peace, is the most morally human thing, civilized people can accomplish. Not wanting or allowing someone to make peace...is indecent!! This is what the GOP stands for...blatant immoral hypocrisy. "Obama drones are killing civilians, we must stop the killing of civilians in wars!!" The GOP doesn't care who dies, whether it's in our schools or in our streets...crazies, saying to kill the kids crossing over the border...so, why should they care about kids and civilians in other countries?

This, is your GOP...the acknowledgment, that they feel comfortable with killing civilians at an acceptable level....wonder how they feel about Mutually Assured Destruction? But, their minds, don't make contact with common sense. Killing civilians to inspire fear...will only, piss them off even more!!

ReaganBook: Their own little piece of CyberSpace

 By RF Schatten

"Facebook for Patriots"...how Patriotic!! Looks like all those Trolls, wiggling themselves throughout all the Facebook Groups ...have come to the realization, no one likes them. With a Facebook user list at 1.32 Billion+, you would presume...somebody out there, likes them? Maybe, is just their Politics not in style, at this time...the world is much more liberal, now days.

Conservatives, believe Facebook is too Liberal, so they are launching..."ReaganBook"!! complete in a patriotic Red, White, and Blue decor. Now, Conservatives, Christian Conservatives, Libertarians, and others from all over the Net...can migrate to ReaganBook, co-mingle, plus troll and annoy each other to death. Try it out!!...first inside reviews? “We’re tearing down walls of tyranny and
censorship,"...translation: you're allowed to spread Hate Speech... It's a Conservative Christian, Family Values version of Sodahead.

It's very interesting, that a Pro Family Faith Group decided to name this venture, after Ronald Reagan...a divorced man who never, personally represented Family Values...and a man whose immorality of negotiating behind his own government's back, for strictly political profit...put
himself first and foremost, over his own country. And a moral man, who negotiated arms for drugs...while his wife was saying "No to Drugs". But again, I guess he does represent the moral values of today's GOP

GOP to America: Rich Kids eat Filet Mignon. Poor kids? Let them eat Cake!!

 By RF Schatten



God, Family, and Country...which comes first to you?? If you're a Republican...add $$$. Which comes first to them??
What Republicans are truly all about: The world, for the Rich and the Famous...trickle a buck or two, to those ignorant inside the middle class, for their vote...and the infamous Royal Screw Job to the Poor!! If you make $160,000/yr or more...you get a $2,200 Tax Cut. If you make $14,000/yr or less...you lose $1,725. Makes sense?? only, if you're rich. Republicans love kids...if their parents have a lot of $$$. They just proved, that they absolutely don't give a rat's ass for those less fortunate.

Now, you will find Dumbo believers, trolling around...extolling all the virtues of Republicanism. Why is it a good thing to help the rich?? and why is it a good thing, to take it away from the poor...and give it to the rich?? a little touch of oligarchical flair, to all this. They will throw their everlasting supply of political horseshit, to convince you, why all this done by the GOP is what's right for America...what's right for business. Then throw-in economics into the picture...specially since 90% of the population doesn't have a clue, unless you speak to them in very layman's terms...which is, why they don't!! And they'll act while looking down at you...in the most reserve, sincere and humble way, as if; "Oh, well...that's the way God meant life to be, I guess".

The GOP today, is the party of exclusivity...loyally serving those benefactors, who believe they have the exclusive right to have laws changed to fit their own personal agenda, just because of their monetary wealth...and to exclude those, who don't meet 'their' profile standards. They are the sole, self-proclaimed protectors of the wealthiest 1% of the country...and will do whatever it takes, including the downfall of the United States...to protect their $$$. Their mission is to divide the nation, by denying the same standards of Living, the same standards of Health, and the same standards of Education...and turning our society into a Ruling Class Society. They 'are' dangerous people...and the dangerous issues of Income Inequality and Class Warfare, 'are' by far, the most serious issues facing our Nation, today...and should be addressed 1st and foremost, much more than the Economy, Immigration, or Foreign Affairs.
On the upside...it's their Tea drinking, one dimensional minions, who's taken control of the GOP...with a minority of members, controlling the majority's mind and their will. Nothing gets accomplished, except repealing Obamacare 50+ times...so far. This House vote? will get nowhere in the Senate...like every other bill sent, just so they can keep their record alive...for not passing anything!!

The GOP's open arms' welcome of the Tea Party movement, onto the national stage, has become a very unwelcome proposition...and with elections less than 100 days away...a very sticky divorce, they don't need at this time. Looking at the wise "Old Guard" getting emasculated by the seriously stupid, is really sad.   It looks like "Hal" has taken over...and no one's flying the Republican craft.

Michele's homophobic despair...and the ever loving Ignorance, that believes her

 By RF Schatten

The queen of batshit American homophobia, is at it again!! I guess the Bachmann Family's "Gay Exorcism" Clinic, where Marcus will miraculously...for the right price...exorcize all your gayness away!! has slowed down quite a bit, now that gayness is viewed in a more favorable light. She needs to stir up some business!!  

The one dimensional hatred, the embarrassing lies, and the sheer ignorance this crazy lady spews...it's not hard to see, why she's retiring...her so called righteous life, is quickly catching up. And it
appears now, it wasn't so righteous after all. Her next travels in her road of life??... from Congress to Prison...for both, Michele and Marcus the Exorcist. Michele in prison??...with all those women!! that would make an interesting scenario. For Marcus??...could be in 7th Heaven!!
 

Human intelligence in our society knows all this horseshit, is just that. The fact, today's Right prefers to live in our society, in a regressed life form...more power to them...but this cast of clowns will never be living, at 1600 Pennsylvania Ave. Are White Conservative males so insecure about their masculinity?? or are they just scared...what someone may find in their 'closet'?? If the division that exists in this country, today...whether it's race, economic equality, religions, classes, or cultures...is ever going to stop, we must come to a meeting of the minds. The more divided we are, the more we fall...probably, that's the whole intention of their exercise. For the United States to regress into 'their' world...back to the caves!! Where else but the Caves, for Science deniers.

57% Support ACA ...and the GOP, still doesn't get it

By RF Schatten

Cognitive Dissonance must be ripping through the hearts of many Republicans...that's their disease. They just cannot imagine, the political reality of their argument...and, they will refuse to listen...because naturally, they're going to be absolutely right. Yea...right!!
 

Reality bites, and is biting the GOP right up their butts. 'This', is what they just don't want to listen to: 1) 20 million Americans (10 million who were uninsured) picked up health insurance or enrolled in
new plans. By November, when Open Enrollment begins again...expect all their neighbors, to make a mad dash for 'their' medical insurance. 2) Young people up to 25, can stay in their Parent's Plan...3 out of every 4 Americans support this part of the Affordable Care Act, including, more than two-thirds of Republicans. 3) 83% of Americans supports the ACA ban on pre-existing condition limits. 4) 88% of all Americans support the ACA's Small Business Tax Credit, including 83% of Republicans. 5) 76% of all Americans and 61% of Republicans, support the ACA's subsidies
to lower income. 6) 75% of Americans supports the ACA's enforcement of requiring mandatory insurance for companies with more than 50 employees. 96% of all the companies in America with 50 or more employees, already have coverage...it's all the same GOP propaganda BS, why poor people
like Papa John's and McDonald's would go broke if they accept Obamacare. 7) 80% of all Americans and 72% of Republicans, supports and approve the ACA's Insurance Exchange Program.

Well!! 57% now support the ACA, and worse!! they prefer it...even more liberalized!! The GOP
hierarchy, must all be talking to themselves in the mirror, by now: "I told you, Obamacare will work" "no, it doesn't work" "It works" "It doesn't work" "we should've done this" "no, we should've done that" "need to be nicer to people" "screw everyone" "if we don't change, kiss Hillary and 2016 bye bye" "no one can touch us in 2016"...it's Cognitive Dissonance!!

PS: If Republican Trolls stage a confrontation, and calls these figures false...just tell them to go to FoxNews!!...most of them came from Rupert!!

Being a proud Liberal

 Be proud of what Liberalism stands for!! We have survived a Great Depression and numerous recessions...because, of 'who' we are!!

Who led us into the greatest depression in US History? and who's led us in the highest unemployment rates? Conservatives!!. Who have publicly acknowledged by their words and/or actions, they don't care about the Poor, about the Sick, about the Hungry, about the Elderly, or about the Youth? Conservatives, that's who!!
Now, who's led this country out of a depression? and who's led this country, out of our worst recessions? Who cares for the Sick, the Poor, the Hungry, the Elderly, the Young...and the Mothers? Liberals, that's who!!

Be proud of being a Liberal, and shout it out loud!! Because of Social Security, Medicare, Medicaid, Food Stamps, and other plans implemented...all of us, Liberals, Conservatives, Rich, or Poor...have enjoyed a much finer quality of life, than anyone else in the world!!
Conservatives identify Liberalism, primarily through social entitlements...those entitlements associated with feeding the hungry, healing the sick, helping the poor, respecting and taking care of our elders, educating our next generations, etc. If it all sounds like acts of humility...helping those less fortunate, just as Jesus Christ led his life...then, you can feel good about yourself, because you've done what's right!!

When a Conservative confronts you, and attacks your Liberal beliefs...just ask him or her, what Christian act have 'they' done for humanity, today??

Rick Perry remembers the Alamo, and braces for the Invasion of the dastardly Fruity Loops

By RF Schatten

Rick Perry, the Master of Oops, appears he really wants to run for President...just, one more time. This whole spectacle on the US/Mexico Border, is all election cycle Political Grandstanding...a very expensive political reality show, to put on. But what's $$$ to Rick Perry?? it's the Taxpayers'.

The genius of this man...send in a force of 1,000 National Guardsman to help protect the Border, against an invading force of pre-teen kids. His actions?? "I will not stand idly by while American Citizens are attacked". As Jon Stewart said; "Don't call it an invasion, till the invaders can reach and open their own cereal boxes"!! In Perry's statement, while mentioning American Citizens being attacked, he also mentioned "children living in squalor". Unless he meant American kids on the Texas border, which with Perry's Texas Welfare policies, is very probable...he's talking about the invaders!! And if they live in squalor, why would he care, if he doesn't want them to come in, anyhow??
This, is just a living testament on how to exploit a tragedy for political gains...and in Rick Perry's case, it will eventually backfire, like always...for just, another "oops" moment.

This whole experiment in absolute stupidity, comes with a heavy price tag; The estimated cost to state taxpayers is $5,000,000/week. Perry said, he doesn't know where the money will come from, and is hoping the Federal Government will reimburse the state's expenses...this way, we pay the bill, not Texas...just like Greg Abbott said; “Texas is willing to put the boots on the ground but Washington is going to foot the bill".

Now, the irony of this story is...the Sheriffs on the Border, don't want the military in there!! “I don’t know what good they can do,” said Cameron County Sheriff Omar Lucio “I need people who I can hire who know the community, the language and who can help.” Hidalgo County Sheriff Eddie Guerra, echoed Lucio's thoughts. Apparently, Texas' Sheriffs along the Border, prefer to hire new Deputies with what $5 million/week brings in. Probably, from all those Sheriff Deputies on layoffs throughout the State, due to Rick's budget cuts!!

The Honor...or Dishonor...of being mentioned in the Oxford Dictionary

By RF Schatten



Congratulations to the Tea Party, Christian Conservatives, and all other Right Wing organizations!! You officially made it into the Oxford Dictionary...we all had faith, you would some day!!

The Oxford Organization, is now using these groups as examples of what "Bigotry" really means. For years everyone knew the KKK, the Arian Nation, Neo-Nazis, and Social Conservative Christians...are Bigots and Racists. Many, still would dispute that charge...they never admit publicly, they 'are'...they just physically and verbally 'demonstrate' their true feelings. Now, they can proudly be universally identified as Hate Groups. There's other hate groups around...so, for a complete list, check out the "Southern Poverty Law Center".

What many fail to mention, is today's "Suits" version of hate groups...those who function in a more legitimate and civil manner...under the guise of Citizens United, Americans for Prosperity, and FreedomWorks. And all under the subliminal umbrella of the Cato Institute and the John Birch Society...their benefactors. Is the John Birch Society a hate organization?? Always been!!...why should they be any different now??

While Republicans, Tea Partiers, and FOX, try to argue that all this by The Oxford Organization, is probably another international conspiracy to make Obama look good, and make them look bad...you have those Republican Trolls roaming the Internet, and annoying everyone...while pushing the "double standard" line, of Liberals and Progressives being the ones using Bigotry, Racism, and Hate. Well!! my dear Red Troll friends, call us whatever you want, because it will never stand...but, when we call you a Racist and a Bigot...remember, we're just following the proper guidelines of what the words mean...as written by the Oxford Dictionary!!

Politicizing and Exploiting Religion, for Hate

 By RF Schatten


Barack Obama exploiting the crash to benefit the gay agenda?? More like Christian Talk Hosts, exploiting the immense Ignorance of their flock.
Politicize a tragedy to normalize "Sexual Deviancy"?? If anyone is trying to politicize anything...it's this soulless excuse of a human being. The hatred for a Black man is so great with White Christian America, that it's become the norm, to attack the President for whatever excuse they can muster up...and rally their fanatically faithful, with it.

First, was the Batshit Radio theories that the downing of MH17, was a conspiracy by Obama to help the Dems in November...now, this latest horseshit. Limbaugh, Beck, Hannity, Savage, Imus, Ingraham...and company...live for finding or creating anything, out of anything...as long as they can gather their masses and lead them through their continuous, never-ending journey into nowhere. Let them believe, that they 'are' what God meant for Christianity to be like. No one has politicized "Religion" in America, more than the Social Conservative Christian movement.

What they're doing is, insulting the Intelligence of our Nation, both here and abroad...but again...the Republicans insult on the daily basis, both the intelligence and the character of Blacks, Hispanics, Gays, Women, and both...the elderly and the young...among others!! They insult the Poor, the Middle Class, the Sick, and the Vets...who do they really care for?? We know who!! Which is ironic, because they defend the cause of those, who at the end...have no use for any of them...and if elected, their usefulness will be quickly terminated. No one said, these are the smartest cookies to ever come out of the cookie factory!!
