The GOP: When the substance of the argument is lost...Fear is an old stand-by!

By RF Schatten

A truly indecent and hateful man will instill fear at his supporters, not just to rile up emotions...but, because the Son of a Bitch likes it!

We can easily forgive a child who is afraid of the dark; the real tragedy of life is when men are afraid of the light ~~ Plato

The Republican War on America, the GOP's systematic campaign of ostracizing the Social Classes with use of Hate, Fear, Ad Nauseam, Ad Hominem, Black/White Fallacy, Cognitive Dissonance, Obfuscation, Name Calling...to cause enough tension and confusion to turn the US into a Ruling Class Society. Their war against the Black Community and voter rights...just, because they're Black! Against Women, for having the basic human right to control of their own body! Their gynephobia and their fear of emasculation, for allowing women dominance!  Against the Gay Community, because they just straight up, hate Gays! Oh! those sinful ways!...and using the "Religious" card, to keep their own sins hidden in the closet!

And against Hispanics and other Immigrant Groups; because of all those Immigration Issues? That's the GOP's Lilly White Ruse!...in not too long a distant future, Hispanics will make up the majority of America, and in a not too long distant future, after that...Blacks will become the largest Minority!

Fear?? No one represents the inner fears and the ignorance that comes free with it than the GOP...and their agenda of opposing every single political issue, in which the majority of the voters agree in the Polls! Put that fear, first and foremost in the hearts of every American...enough of the stupids will follow you to Armageddon!

Guns don't kill people...people kill people! That's true, people kill people...those "people" profiting from selling arms in the guise of God, Freedom, Liberty, Constitutional Rights, and defending ourselves against Terror. The same "People", who then turn around and sell their merchandise to the Terrorist...at a higher fee, naturally! The Morals and compassion for their fellow man?  Money will always trump Morals!

A campaign of misinformation, open contempt for authority by example, the open disrespect of their own President in front of the world! Building an atmosphere of hate and violence, and permitting that violence to rage across the country, by never condoning their actions!

“Life, Liberty, And the pursuit of any maggot who threatens them”  ~~ NRA Welcoming Sign!!

Guns for everybody!...need it right away? no problem, who needs to wait? Background checks? Government intrusion! You're Crazy?? hey! you're the perfect sale!! lots of guns and ammo!! We live in a violent society, even before Obama became Prez!...though somehow, they'll find a way to blame Obama for making southern crackers, racists!

The NRA's Annual Conference! held at the Music Center in Nashville, Tennessee!! Country Music, Southern Nostalgia, Guns, and Grits! Where else better to discuss all the different shades of color and what 'Color', will be the "New" in Cleveland in 2016? All the Clowns got out of their Clown Car and preached more and more fear...to see who can upstage, the other!

Ironic!! The NRA and the Party of John Wayne, talking tough! The Right to Bear Arms, the Right to Open Carry, The Right for Teachers to carry Guns in School...the ultimate authorities on Responsible Gun Owners, and how to use guns, responsibly. These wonderful men of wisdom outlawed the possession of Handguns inside the Conference! If there's nothing to worry about? why can members open carry...or even if they keep it concealed? Responsible Gun Ownership...or is that just more Right Wing horseshit? or maybe inside all that tough GOP hawkish machismo...they're scared shitless of some crazy wanting a little payback for something??

America's Largest Welfare Recipients: $153.8 Billion/Yr for our 1% Creators!

By RF Schatten

In light of today's Income Disparity, it's only right that another Federal Holiday should be established. April 15th! The greatest day of the year...if you're wealthy! A National Holiday for Corporations and anyone above the 99% of the wealth in America!! They are the greatest shining example of Reaganomics, that Money does Trickle Down...from one wealthy family to another! but always keep it in the 1%, naturally!  They 'do' trickle down to the public, though...just before they zipper-up their pants!

If legally being considered a "Citizen"...a legal person...isn't enough for Big Money to find ways of controlling governments? Why not find more legal ways of royally screwing the population, right up the ass? We, the People, elected all this scum that patronize Oligarchy. Why would people be complaining now, when all we had to do was not elect that slime in the first place? Probably some ignorance is involved in the equation, but more like a sort of mental political apathy. Sometimes, people just give up! watching what's happening in America, the dysfunctionally abnormal Social tensions...and the power of the almighty dollar in an age of a transparent Internet. Corporations literally waging war against a populace...and doing it, completely out in the open!

We, the Taxpayers [known as, from this moment on], "We, the Sucka" subsidize Corporate Profits at a tune of $153.8 Billion annually!! And we're doing it, due to the Low Wages they created for us! ...while Republicans oppose raising the Minimum Wage, some even want Minimum Wage abolished! Back to sweat shops and child labor abuse...just like in China, where Mitt's factory is, and where the kids and moms live and eat while they work.  Low wages that 'keeps' you in Welfare and Family Assistance.

I worked welfare for a couple of years in Ocala and Belleview, Fl. There's a saying among Social Workers; "Welfare is like the Hotel California...you can always check out, but you can never leave"! Is the system!...its basic object; to make your client self-sufficient so welfare assistance wouldn't be needed. But budgets and burocracy never allows that opportunity for everyone...sometimes you just have to be lucky to escape the system!

The influence of the Corporate World on State Welfare, and Public Assistance throughout the country, the influence in Judicial Cronyism, and the influence in Washington Lobby circles...it's all about Corporate and Upper Class Welfare!

"The Corporate Tax Dodging Prevention Act Of 2015"...to prevent corporations from sheltering profits in off-shore tax havens, like Bermuda and the Cayman Islands. And to stop rewarding companies that ship jobs and factories overseas with tax breaks. Will it pass?? A big HELL NO!! will be the answer from the Owners of the Republican Party...the David and Charlie Show !!

Outrageous!!  The cynically arrogant hypocrisy of Corporations and the Filthy Rich. The Federal Government spends $127.8 billion per year, and the states collectively spend $26 Billion per year on Assistance Programs for Working Families. $153.8 Billion dollars! The self-proclaimed "Creators" are the biggest single Welfare Recipient group in the United States!! Paid in full by the Moochers!!

New Report: Taxpayers Subsidize $153.8 Billion In Corporate Profits Due To Low Wages

Marco Rubio: A Little Boy, trying to Play a Man's Game

By RF Schatten

In Politics today, it doesn't take much to know a man's true character. So! here's a short muse on one, Marco Antonio Rubio.

A son of Immigrants who Voted against his own Immigration Bill, and now opposes Immigration for others! This 'little' man who opposes others from living in the United States, wants to be President and declared his Candidacy, symbolically in front of Miami's "Freedom Tower"...that symbol of Freedom for the millions of refugees fleeing oppression. The Welcome Center...the Ellis Island of the 'Pan American' world!

Opposes Immigration! and has the fricken cojones! to stand in front of the 'Symbol' of freedom for millions of Immigrants!! That shows how much respect, integrity, and compassion he has towards Immigrants and especially the disrespect to his own Cuban Community, of which the overwhelming majority...does favor Immigration!!

This little man will change directions of agendas, at a blink of an eye...whatever has to be done to move ahead in his political world. Hopping from one issue in one bed to another issue, in another bed...with whoever's willing to finance his life? He's, your personal Biatch!

They say his strength is his marvelous poetic speechmaking!...and his appearance as a mild-mannered politico in contrast to the rest of the clowns, may inch him up in the short run...but his lack of maturity at the national stage in a Nationwide Political Campaign? Marco is still a little boy who panics! A real pro wouldn't sweat the way he does on TV! And no! it's not the heat in an air conditioned studio environment...and a pro wouldn't look so panicky! Cotton-mouth from a "good" speaker? That, and a nervous sweat? Ted Cruz will chew him up and spit himout in a debate! he's just an Amateur playing in the SuperBowl of American Politics.

Marco Rubio's qualification for President? The US Senate's #1 Absentee Lawmaker!! missing and not Voting on 99 occasions. Now, there's real civic responsibility!! Why vote? his Party hasn't done a damn thing in 6 years, anyhow!

The horseshit: He's a Family Man who prefers not to have his kids in Washington, so he flies home as much as possible to be with his lovely wife and children!

That's lovely and sweet! But, Mr. Rubio! Want to be in Politics? want to be President? Then act like a man and do your work! You got elected to Vote for Bills, not to spend time with your kids! Family? it's Great!! Then get out of politics and spend more time at home!! miss your kids? Political business requires a politico's time more than a normal 9-5 job!! You've always known that! Want to be with your kids more? Move them up to DC with you...or get out of politics!

 A family man who loves his kids! Family values, the Lord...naturally! All the Christian Values of today's Republican Party. But, Marco is Politician first, and family values man second! Yea! and why not? the morality of a man who votes against his own Authored Bill...a flaming coward who stuck his tail between his legs when pressured by others in the GOP. The man who explained how his family was forced to leave, and escape the tyranny of Communism in 1959, a few years before communism took hold...just to find out that his parents left Cuba the year Castro returned to the Island in the "Gramma"  to start the war!

More horseshit? I didn't know! my parents never told me when they arrived in America! Reeeeeeeaallly! Pretty stupid for a man who spent his entire life with his Mom and Dad, and never knew anything about them before the time he was born??  a supposedly intelligent man with a Law Degree and an impressive political resume!!...or was he just playing the "Communist" card for his minions? I bet his lips were dry when confronted with the story? and the explanation for the BS? What explanation? all as if it never happened! No!! Marco Rubio still just a little man. The purchase of Aquafina in the Rubio household is certainly going up during this fun ride!!

Defining My Cuban Heritage...so many good years, wasted!

By RF Schatten

"The Cold War has been over for a long time...and I'm not interested in having battles frankly that started before I was Born" ~~ Barack Obama

For Official Records: I am an American! and very proud to be one. Pero, también soy Cubano! ... y muy orgulloso!

It's really so hard for me personally, talking about Cuban/American relations!...emotionally, so much sadness has come to me since 1961!

1961! the last time I visited Cuba, where I was born..the Vedado section of Havana. Remembering El Malecón, where my uncle would take me and go fishing every time I flew into Havana. La Habana Vieja! (Old Havana) Guanabacoa, El Marianao, El Miramar...remember going to the Club de Profesionales with my aunts to go swimming!

But, strangely enough! what I remember the most that last year in Cuba...oddly enough!!...was watching along with 50,000 other people at the Gran Stadium de La Habana; Fidel Castro and Camilo Cienfuegos play baseball in-between the AAA double hitter, between the Columbus Jets and the Havana Sugar Kings! Their team name was "Los Barbudos" (the bearded ones)...but I don't remember who the hell they played? 54 years!...can't remember everything, folks! Raul was there, by the way, but didn't participate on the field. He looked a little more Adventurous and Radical in those days...a small VanDyke goatee and a Ponytail!!

All my life, I was that 'kid' who was called an "Americanito", an American Kid, by Cubans...and Americans didn't have a clue what I was, except I didn't speak with an accent, so I probably was an American. Now days, since I don't have an accent in either English or Spanish...Cubans and Americans seem surprised that I'm both, one of them! What can I say...it's my destiny! A Cuban-born Mom who flew from Miami one night to visit her family...and suddenly! my World Debut arrived the next day!!...30 days early!

My Birther Papers? I was registered at the American Embassy before I was born, by my American Dad who knew the strangeness of 'shit happens' that runs in the family...and generations later, still does!! Yes!!! I'm an American, Born in a Foreign Country...and I can run for President, like Papa Romney, the Maverick, and that 'Canadian' guy!

Throughout my childhood, seeing and visiting Cuba while living in the United States, the different style of living, the different cultures...and yet so many things alike! It made me see things more objective Politically! Saw the good things of Cuba, saw the bad things...people, shot dead in the side of the road, left there by Batista's Death Squads the night before. The horrible conditions of an Insane Asylum called "Mazorra" on the road to Rancho Boyeros. And I saw a documentary years later of the changes at that Asylum...it just made me cry!  All those poor people who suffered years earlier, just spirits now days!...they shouldn't have had to suffer like that!

How can you take sides when half of your family favors Castro, and the others Batista? Watching Fidel play baseball was fun! I was a kid! and to me and my Generation...not all was necessarily Political, we were just frickin' young kids watching a Game of Baseball and a bearded guy who wouldn't have been there pitching, if the Washington Senators didn't cut him!

54 years of listening to the same family fight over the same damn things! year after year...in Miami! In the Cuban Culture, not everyone that fled Castro was necessarily anti or pro...many fled just to keep La Familia together and continue that stupid crazy tradition of constant political arguments and bickering...it's in the Cuban blood!! El Ambiente Cubano! How many famous Cuban Politicos are buried in Woodlawn Cemetary, in Miami?? You have Statues erected for people whom half of Miami fled from...primarily because of their Death Squads. Rolando Masferrer comes to mind! And mortal enemies in Cuba, before and after Castro...you have hated rivals buried across from each other...and their families? waving at each other at the Cemetary...then going out together and grabbing un Cafecito!

You have generations who will never change, they will die hating the Castros. Then, you got  generations that are open-minded to a dialog!! Enough is Enough!! Time to kiss and make up! What happened 56 or 60 years ago, people should just let go! You can't relive the past or change anything, And don't forget; you have Generations who, to them...Cuba is just their ethnic background, a place in the World Atlas, and Castro is just part of a History Book.

For so many years, my Cuban side of the Family were able to travel back and forth...Cuban Americans who are US Citizens have been allowed to visit the Homeland for quite a few years with restrictions, depending what Administration is in power! Yours truly, on the other hand...couldn't travel because I was an American Citizen born in a foreign country, and under a different section than a Cuban-born, Cuban-American who arrived after 1959!

For 54 years, I've been screwed for what? What has the United States gained with their Embargo? What have we lost since Jan. 1st, 1959? 56 Years of Life between two nations only 90 miles away...a 50 minute propeller plane ride! So fricken close, yet so damn far away for me!! I just want to see the Country where I was born!...just one more time! And if I could take my kids? even better.

Thank you, Mr. President. Whenever I think of this day, all the diplomacy and the hard work put into achieving this moment, my heart is with you, my friend!! I can only speak for myself, but there're a lot of Cubans in Miami, and throughout the Country who also say, Thank You! Thank You! Thank You!

Time to break up that hatred and learn to live with each other!! That old animosity! For God's sake! we have to let go! 100 years from now, we're all going to be dead!...and those alive won't even know who we were. It's all about the future, what defines us as a people and as a Nation and how we can advance peace and harmony among our fellow man!

Funny thing about 1961, and I'm not making this up, my Cuban wife will tell ya!!...my last full day in Cuba, I was babysitting my 2 small cousins at my uncle's house in the community of El Fontanar, when a dear friend (who happens to still be alive and well in Miami) and I, took the kids to the Community Clubhouse to play. They were having some festivities and this cute little blonde girl, involved in whatever the hell they were doing,  grabbed both of our attention! We both agreed that kid someday is going to have a stack of Boys lined up, calling her up!

It may have been Coincidence or Fate, call it Kismet or Karma!...14 years later I met that not so little girl anymore in Miami!  And we've been married ever since!

Modern Republican Orthodoxy: What would Abe and Ike do?

By RF Schatten

Republicans hate it when they are called Racist!...but, when they're called Racists by one of their own?

The Party of Lincoln and Eisenhower has become the Party of Nixon's "Southern Strategy" ...all the Racist Democratic Party remnants of the "Dixiecrats" are now the Southern Chapter of the Grand Old Party. The Party that Strom Thurmond bolted to, because the Democrats were just not Racist enough to his likes.

In a serious political world, when good old time Religion takes precedent over the Government's Affairs of State...when treason becomes fashionable in the name of God!

The Degenerate Hypocrisy of 47 treasonous US Senators and the Speaker of the US House....publicly undermining the Commander-In-Chief, by negotiating with a Foreign Government behind the back of the President of the United States, the State Dept, and its Ambassadors. Illegally negotiating against the best interest of their own country...while forming an alliance with a Foreign Government to undermine the rest of the World and declare war on Iran! The Republican-sponsored Kirk-Menendez Bill would obligate the United States into going to War...if Israel, requests that the US invade Iran! By-passing the President and the rest of the Country...a Foreign Leader declaring War in behalf of the United States...instead of our own leaders? doesn't sound too "Kosher"?? It's a pretty sorry state of affairs on the human intelligence of Republicans, that to them...the only solution for Diplomacy is War!

The Degeneracy of a Political Party publicly warning the entire World that 300 Republicans will undermine the United Nations' efforts on Climate Change and that of their own Country's...and the 7 Billion people in the planet who wants to survive!

The Degeneracy of Dick Cheney deliberately exposing an American Undercover Field Agent, the CIA's top Spy on Nuclear Arms...as personal payback to her husband, Ambassador Joe Wilson, for acknowledging that the allegations of "Weapons of Mass Destruction' in Iraq...was completely False Information.

The Degenerate stench of arrogant accusations at the Public for advancing Racism against Evangelicals. Hating inhuman scum is not racist!...they come in every Race, Color, or Creed! When Ted Cruz says that Gays are having a "Jihad" against Evangelicals, he's just advancing more of that hatred among his ignorant flock. "Jihad" in its pure Arabic meaning, refers to an effort to practice religion in the face oppression and persecution. Who's being persecuted? who's actually calling for the death of all California gays? or is it trying to pass Legislation like that, just only for symbolic purpose? What's symbolic with Indiana? with Arkansas? No! these batshit sub-humanoids are deadly serious! and for them "Jihad" has become more synonymous with "Holy War". To them, the Bible comes ahead of Country, the Constitution, and all the Laws of the Land!!

Who are racists? let a Republican tell you!! Working directly with the GOP, Lawrence Wilkerson knows a little bit about the insides of the Republican Party!

"There are sane and sober people in the Republican Party!...but the Party has 'scores' of Racists"!  Religious Fundamentalism and Right Wing Militarism, bent on the latest war to end all wars...no negotiations, no diplomacy, only War!...and Israel watching on. Fighting a War for someone else! that 'is' the blatant ignorance and disrespect the GOP has towards the American Public!

How much is the Republican Party's integrity towards the values of having a War? In Wilkerson's words;

"The U.S. Government paid Contractors $138 Billion. KBR, a subsidiary of Cheney’s former company Halliburton, received about $40 Billion in Government Contracts. We wasted a ton of money. It went into people’s pockets, like Halliburton and Lockheed Martin and Bechtel... and a lot of Iraqis like Ahmed Chalabi"

"Dick Cheney and Bush are both Oil men and wanted to ensure 300 Billion Barrels didn’t stay in Saddam’s hands" Good old greed and corruption!!...or did you really ever believe? honestly believe? that we're helping Irag become a Democratic society? As Democratic as the GOP is right here? suppressing the right to vote! and ostracizing the Poor, the Women, the Elderly, the Gays, the Blacks, and the Hispanic Communities??

They want Iraq to be just like America!...with all its divine corruption...that's the American way!!  Who needs Integrity? A Democracy with built-in Racism!...they 'do' hate the Great Satan, and Evangelicals sure hate Islam! Today's Republican Orthodoxy...the far side of bizarre!

"If we attacked Iran, they would go Nuclear. If we attacked Iran it would take 500,000 Troops, 10 years and Trillions of Dollars. Alexander the Great almost died in Iran. You don’t want to invade Iran! Iran has 75 million people, and it’s the most stable Country in the Region" ~~ Colonel Lawrence Wilkerson, Chief of Staff for Colin Powell

Now we have a group of Fools ready to start a War to Armageddon because they like to read a book of "literature", called The Bible!! John McCain, that Military expert on Jet Crashes...who would've never been known today, if he didn't crash just one last time and gotten captured..believes we should bomb the shit out of Iran and every other country in the Mid-East, Lindsay Graham? Oh! whatever Johnny wants is fine with him, of course! Tom Cotton wants to bomb Iran, too; "3 days, and we're all done!"...no problem, he says!! ..And with Teddy the Messiah, and Daddy, his Rasputin...what could possibly go wrong??

Replacing the Constitution with the Bible: Evangelical America, Ted Cruz, and their Fight for God!

By RF Schatten

How a little crybaby boy gets pissed and throws a hissy fit...because he can't get what he wants!

Evangelicals, refuse to believe that the Constitution was not written expressly for them? If you can't get what you want? Strip the power! Strip the power from Obama to negotiate, because the GOP's leader, Bibi Netanyahu doesn't approve. Strip the Power of the Presidency by publicly undermining negotiations against their own Government's foreign policy. Strip the power from anything that would make Obama look better than the Republicans. Strip the power of the Supreme Court on Gay Issues! Next? strip the power of the Supreme Court on Black Issues? Hispanic Issues? Women Issues?

"Religious Freedom", from Women, Blacks, Hispanics...and Gays! To ostracize society and 'legally' get away with murder!! They own Five of the Nine Judges...why shouldn't they get what they paid for? 'That' is Teddy's hissy fit!!

Ted Cruz wants the U.S. Congress to eliminate the power of the Federal Judiciary, including the Supreme Court, by passing a Law banning them from hearing or ruling on Marriage Equality Cases. Back, to that good old time Religion!! Get the Tents up...and let the Revival begin! Though it's Politically Incorrect to allow Elephants inside a Circus tents, now day!!

And after the Gays...what? To Cruz; Theocracy should take precedence over the Constitution. Separation of Church and State?? Not when you have fanatical ignorance marching down Main Street, wrapped in the flag and carrying their favorite version of the Bible!!

Evangelicals don't want separation between Church and State...to them, the Church rules the State. Tom Delay recently said; “Fight this battle to the bitter end because when you let the government dictate what you believe and what your values are, this country is finished.” Evangelical America and their war with everyone who doesn't agree with their values! A battle that will continue until common sense wins out, and they all go back to their Caves or Closets.

Whether a Judge is paid off or not!...threatening the Supreme Court of actions they will take if the ruling doesn't favor them? It just gives the Judges, a bigger reason to vote in favor of Marriage Equality! You can just hear Antonin Scalia, after listening to Cruz and his little constitutional thoughts; "You don't fucking tell me how to vote in my court, little boy!!"

Ted Cruz Wants To Strip the Supreme Court's Authority On Marriage Equality

A World of 7 Billion Fights to Save the Planet...and 300 Republicans bent on destroying those Hopes!

By RF Schatten

“I see people in Beijing and New Delhi, where they can’t breathe, they just wear masks...If you can’t breathe the fucking air, wouldn’t you want to make a fundamental change?” ~~~ Bill Maher
The immorality of exploiting ignorance for greedy financial gains, while allowing the planet...and themselves, to die. When will America rise and make it known that something has to be done with our environment? before Rick Scott lets Florida finally sink altogether while the Atlantic Ocean flows westward towards New Orleans' new "oceanfront"? When will America realize that fresh water is a gift from nature? and if you fool around enough, mother nature will just say "fuck you", turn around and make your existence on this planet, a living hell...and not necessarily just hot!! No, water shortage? tell 'that' to the people in California!
While the World in a truly bi-partisan way, have put Political, Cultural, and Social issues aside in favor of a global cooperation between fellow humans to save the planet!...one group, "301" Republicans in Washington, DC believe they know more than the remaining 7 Billion people in this Planet. At least, that's their message to their loyal minions, who will follow them off a cliff. 
The morality of the other 7 billion is not going to allow the immorality of the Republican Party selling their souls to Koch Industry. Their blatant opposition to the EPA so Koch doesn't have to keep paying record numbers in fines for Polluting and contaminating the Streams, and the Air in America. The selling of Federal Public Land to developers and the oil industry. Oil Industry? here comes the Kochs, again! the Pipeline? TransCanada and the millions of acres of Alberta Oil Fields, 'is' Koch Industry! The destruction of our shores, of our sea life, of our land, and our food and plant life...our animal planet!!
And how about the rest of the world? They spew the concern of liberating every country on Earth from Political suppression! American style Democracy for all Nations! But where is the 'Respect'? where is that Concern? the compassion for China, for India, for Indonesia, for Brazil, Russia, Japan? Billions of people on this Earth and one tiny group of Degenerates, saying fuck you!!
Morality will win over...it always has. Throughout the History of Mankind, we've had the lowest common denominator of immorality, trying to control all others...in the end? sane, moral people know what to do best!
If you are a Climate Denier? fine! If you believe in the Right of Free Speech? fine! If you believe in Constitutional Rights? fine! And if you believe in the Bible? whatever happens, God meant it? Please, proceed!!
You don't have to believe in shit! But, if you believe so much pushing for Democracy? then step aside and go back to your caves!! The rest of the world wants to survive a little more comfortably!
If you think all Scientists on Earth are wrong? then come up with the solution to save the planet!...if you can't? then shut up! and allow common sense to rule. You don't need rocket science, to know that if you're not an expert in a certain field?...listen to those who are!! If 99 of 100 Climate Scientists say there's a big problem, is just common sense...listen to them!!

They say that Global Temperature has risen 1.4 F. degrees since 1880. Is it a lot? don't really know!...but if they say it's bad? I'm going to naturally, listen....they know more than I do!! There's good hope for Human Intelligence to win out!...but, in every story of good deeds, you gotta have the "Heel". The Villain!...the proverbial fight between Right and Wrong! Justice and Injustice! Once again! the Republicans are playing the role of the Heel...once again, interfering in World Negotiations while undermining their own government! And promising to break all treaties signed by Obama when the GOP takes power.
The UN Intergovernmental Panel's released analysis from 800 Scientists on Climate Change: "The Earth will face 'severe', pervasive and 'irreversible' damage if we don’t switch to zero- and low-carbon sources of electricity” "human beings and the planet’s ecosystems will suffer unprecedented losses from even more severe and frequent weather events”. And in conclusion? “We have the means to limit climate change. All we need is the will to change, which we trust will be motivated by knowledge and an understanding of the science of climate change.”
Publicly Warning the World the that The Republicans are going to undermine the entire World's efforts in the survival of our planet, and the human race?? Wow!! that Christian Republican Compassion, you just can't never have enough of it!!

2016 GOP Clown Debates: New Faces, Old Faces, Same Stupidity!

BY RF Schatten

"Make 'em laugh! Make 'em laugh! Don't you know, everyone wants to laugh?" There's nothing more invigorating to the soul of Progressive America than watching the Republicans' quadrennial attempt at staging an intellectually serious Political Primary Debate...now, that's Entertainment!!

And, Yes!..Christmas did come early for the Blue Team. If Ted Cruz's announcement on his 2016 Presidential run, is a sign of things to come...it's going to be one wild and crazy batshit primaries, everything needed for a Must-See TV experience of a lifetime. Another super season of the Great American Clown Show.

The cast of characters itching to expose themselves for who they really are: Ted Cruz and his alter-ego, Raphael Sr. ready to take on all comers. Who will dare challenge the Alberta, Canada native? Rick Perry?...Oops! he 'really' does believe, his new makeup makes him look different  than the fool, America has learned to love watching screw up in debates. Michele Bachmann will be sorely missed, but the "Wicked Witch" of HP might very well take her place...there's a 90% chance according to Carly Fiorina, that she might jump in to continue the tradition of the GOP's token female. Her platform? To do for America what she did for Hewlett Packard...'that' could become the oops moment for sweet Carly?

Newt Gingrich is retiring from the Freakshow ...which now, makes him eligible for the Batshit Hall of Fame. Mitt Romney? his Etch-a-sketch has finally broken down and doesn't want to go out and play anymore!

The list continues: Dr. Ben Carson, the man who made a reputation and a very good living out of Medical Science and modern technology...and who taught Medical Students the finer points of Medical Science...'is' a Science Denier. He too wants that Spotlight shining right at him, just as bad as his predecessor, Herman Cain. Someone, has to be the GOP token black? Rand Paul will be there...trying his best impersonation of Ron and Libertarians, but failing miserably. If Mike Huckabee shows up, his cat scratch fever buddy won't be far behind. There's Rick Snyder, the GOP's own Gov. William J. Lepetomane who's trying to use "Eminent Domain" to take over the Town of Rock Ridge...ah? oh! I mean Benton Harbor, MI!  There's talk of him, also running for Prez!

Now, for the Republican Party's "Heavyweights", led by the America's only true political Heavyweight...Chris Christie! Scott Walker, Charles and David's personal paid in full BoyToy, is making strides towards for a shot at moving into 1600 Penn. And Jeb Bush, appears to be ready to "hunker down" in the GOP Clowns' Road Show.

2 potential candidates that have spent their entire political careers moving from one controversy and scandal to another...and have become infamous for those incidents, rather than for their accomplishments in political office! Christie, an obsessively Rude, Disrespectful, and Tactless politico, who, as the voting public takes an extended look...the more turned off they become. Scott Walker's political and personal life has been one big mystery....from school till now!...but slowly, his closet is being pried open. It's what sucks of being a Politician!...sooner or later, everyone finds out! Honesty from a person universally known, by both end of the political spectrum...as a public liar!?!?

And finally!!...another Bush! His baggage is his downfall. Yes! Jeb Bush, the Hispanic-American! You can just here Barbara and George in their New England Wasp tone; I thought "Little Darkie" was our Grandson? what happen to Jeb? What did happen? 48 or so hours of "no comment" by Jeb and his Staff, before joking it away as a stupid mistake. It takes real stupidity to mark under "Hispanic" instead of under White or Caucasian...alphabetical order or not..."H" doesn't resemble "W" or "C"!! Which brings me back to my thought; Why wait so long to finally comment? I look at it simply as a natural act of stupidity, by a human being...others might make something out of it, more than it really is. But you can't continue on 'that' road, Jeb!...if you want to continue on the road to the White House!

It's going to be a great show Who's going to come out of the debates looking like a Clown? who's going to come out looking like a Winner? who's going to come out the Winner and still look Stupid? That person?...will be the Republican Nominee!

Job Growth Stats: Another Big Thumbs Up for Obama...another Thumbs Down for the GOP!

By RF Schatten

"One of the 1st Rules of playing the Power Game is that all bad news must be accepted calmly as if one already knew and didn't care." ~~~ Michael Korda

Survey Polls are becoming a dirty hateful thing among Republican circles...they can't cope with the bad news while remaining in their own self-denial!  No matter how good things are...they will never admit it. They rather destroy their country for the almighty dollar and the hate of a Black Man, than ever admit they were wrong!...Bigotry is a powerful weapon. Accepting defeat from sore losers? never, it's not in their moral character.

The Good News: Barack Obama has set a new Job Growth Record. 61 Continuous Months of Private Sector Job Growth...extending the longest streak (his) on record! The old record was 51 straight months, by Bill Clinton.

Funny how the GOP spends all that money, in advertising. How their mouthpieces go on attack, and how FoxNews just keeps trying to lie about the State of the Economy, especially the 'need' to move jobs from the "Public" to the "Private" sector...we need to have more jobs for the Private sector!! The Truth behind their Lie? Wall Street is at record Highs, Unemployment is at record lows, and the Private sector is making money! 12.1 million jobs over 61 months.  3.1 million jobs in the past 12 months...almost the highest year to year growth during Recovery. The total nonfarm payroll employment rose by 126,000 in March, due to the 129,000 increase in Private sector jobs. And Obama did it all by himself!...with all the obstructionism, and without the help of the Republican Party!

Meanwhile, more bad news for the Grand Old Likud Tea Party! Gallup came out with the Most Admired Man in the World, and In America. The Envelope? For the 7th straight year, Barack Obama is the Most Admired Man in the World...for the 7th straight year, Barack Obama is also the Most Admired Man in America!! Yes! the 'real' America...not batshit America! And the worst news of all? Barack Obama and Pope Francis were tied for the most admired men...by Republicans!!!!

Every accolade he gets is a buckshot in the ass of the Republican Party. In 2014, Forbes Magazine voted Barack Obama, Best Economic President in Modern Times...but, he's a Black Man...and to the GOP, nothing in the world or in this country, will ever go right until he retires! It's not about a Man's Intelligence!...it's all about and will always be about, a Man's Race!

Not too many good old happy days for GOP, recently...being severely mocked throughout the world for their traitorous ways. Then Obama, along with the European Union, Russia, China, Germany, France, and Great Britain, agreed to a historic Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty. A good deal applauded and praised by all World Powers, and the entire planet!...except Israel, Bibi, Boehner, and the GOP! They believe in their own delusion, they know more than the rest of the World and the rest of America!

Leslie H. Gelb wrote in the Daily Beast; "The Real Winners in this round of talks are the Realists and Pragmatists in both Washington and Tehran, and the Losers are the Ideologues and Hawks. Totally unrealistically, the latter seek outright Iranian capitulation, even at much greater risks of war. The former...and this is critical...think the emerging pact is good, but far from Nirvana". It really appears to be a good deal, and it does need to be given a chance!

The Republicans are their own worst enemy..every time they find a cause to fight Obama, they lose! You'd think, they learned these lessons by now?...they'll never admit to that batshit wackiness. Ever since they became the majority and took the Senate, the GOP's ratings have hit rock bottom, way down into uncharted waters while Barack Obama's has steadily gone north, way up!!  Maybe that's the secret for his success?

More Bad News For Republicans As President Obama Sets A New Job Growth Record

Apr 2, 2015

Despite Israeli and GOP efforts, Obama succeeded again! Karma is a Bitch, Bibi!

By RF Schatten

A little Diplomacy goes a long way. How tough a deal? Tough enough for  Russia, China, France, Great Britain, and Germany to all agree it's the best way to preserve peace! Apparently the International Community believes the 5 permanent members of the UN Security Council, plus Germany, cut a good deal!

How good? Good enough! Every good deal ever made is by using the power of the brain rather than the power of the brawn. It's taken 9 years for this to happen. The last 7, with continued obstruction by a hostile congress, and the continued obstruction from a supposed ally! More recently #47traitors and the 48th, John Boehner, publicly undermining events outside the United States with a Foreign Government, against its own government's efforts to secure an agreement!! Every obstacle known to man has been thrown at Obama...and he still succeeded! Karma is a bitch, Bibi!

What America has to remember and understand, and they mostly don't; These negotiations are not about Obama...they're about the security and welfare of Great Britain, China, Russia, France, and Germany besides the United States! What Diplomacy does, is give an opportunity for sensible and understanding men of knowledge to get together, have a give and take compromise...and come out with the best deal possible. A good deal where everyone leaves the table with a handshake, a smile, and with their heads held up high.

How good of a deal? only time will tell...but, you'll never know if you don't try..you got to give Peace a chance!!

The Republican/Likud Party naturally believes it's a sham! No deal will ever be good enough unless it's a total surrender of Iran to Israel. Jeb Bush: "Flawed Agreement", Marco Rubio: "Very Troubling"...and how can we not have a Foreign Policy argument without that Foreign Policy Scholar, Rick "Oops" Perry, who just needed to put his 2 cent's worth: “Americans and our Allies are right to be wary of a Nuclear Deal with Iran that is riddled with concessions by the Obama Administration.”

Dear Mr. Perry, It 'was' our Allies with the exception of Israel, and even more because of the actions of Israel, who negotiated for this deal!! United States is just only one out of 7!

Concessions by Obama? Flawed Agreement? Very, very, very, very Troubling? Except a War against every Muslim on the face of this earth...that's not troubling! Hallelujah! it's time to die for Jesus!... and take every Muslim and every Heathen on this Earth with us! If Christianity can't rule this Earth, it's time for an Armageddon to take place and for the Military Industrial Complex to make a few bucks! A good expensive war is the Republicans' ultimate climax...they 'do' trend towards Gynephobia!

So now! the Republican Party actually knows more about what the World wants than the actual World? Of course, they do!...it's the amazing Power of the Batshit!! They know more what the French want than the French, they now more than the Chinese, the Russians, the British, and even the Germans!! They know because Marco and Ted, and Jeb and Mr. Oops! say so! What better reason??
