Chow time for Texas' National Guard...courtesy of the local Food Bank

By RF Schatten

Maybe the Texas Guard can cross the Border...and have the Kids feed 'them'.

First, everyone said it was a bad move...the monthly cost alone, runs in the millions, and worst of all...he did it all just for Political Grandstanding, showing those dastardly Kiddy Brigades at the border, who's the boss. He wants those sound bytes...show his potential opponents, how tough he is. Then, there's that Indictment and all the legal headaches and distractions...and he's still contemplating running for President?...again?

How embarrassing it must be, for National Guard Troops in Texas. Visiting Food Banks because they can't afford to eat, while standing with an empty gas can...jugging away, and asking people for a handout. I can see those cardboard signs; "Need Gas to get home...please! any donation appreciated, God Bless! :-) " You see a picture of GIs moving boxes into a truck...who are they bringing that food to? and who are they helping? Then they say; "Hey! that's for us, man...we're starving!" That's not right! that's an awful embarrassment, and a black mark for the state, and for Perry. A Texas State Representative, René Oliveira, said; "These brave men and women have apparently been sent on a mission without accommodating for their most basic needs"...he continued "We need to find immediate solutions for these hungry soldiers."

Well, another management failure for Rick Perry. If there's one thing he's good at, is failing...like his "Texas Success". And for those Trolls who'll defend him, to their death...check the article in my Blog, "The Peruser"...of Sept 11, 2011: "The Great Texas Success...not told by Rick Perry" Read it, then defend him with a straight face. About the only thing Rick is really good at, is executing people...he's #1 Nice thing to be proud of! So, how are you going to fix this fine mess, Rick? Another fine embarrassment on your Resumé...oops!!

NRA says; Kids Just Wanna Have Fun...so buy them an Uzi for Christmas!

By RF Schatten

"Who would put an Uzi in the hands of a nine-year-old girl? What is wrong with these people? What is wrong with this culture?". Joe Scarborough was simply, shocked!! Well, Joe!...the answer to all 3 of your questions...is you!! You, and what your philosophy represents...along with most Conservatives, the GOP, and all the Far Right Conservatism in America. You support all of these people...day in and day out! Hey!! kids just wanna have fun!! right Joe?

Wayne Lapierre and Ted Nugent, believe in forcing children to shoot their way to the next grade!...they're on record, for this crazy shit. A lot of Ritalin is going to be dispensed in the schools, when these new commandos walk in for their first day of class!...even if they can't bring anything in, they'll get ready to rumble after school! Or do you believe that all kids who is trained in Firearms, are going to abide by all Gun Safety regulations, all the time?...or not sneak a gun out of the house?

Kids, as mature as they might be...at the end of the day...they're still kids! We're not in the Wild West anymore...it's a different world, Something, just knocked some sense into Morning Joe...the thoughts of a father. But what's the difference from one child, mentally scarred for life?....and all those hundreds of dead kids, shot by all these head cases...that never should've had such an easy access to guns? But, your side wants more guns in school, Joe? The NRA and most of your esteem crazy colleagues...don't agree with ya!! Do what's right, and as a op-ed journalist, start a crusade against the NRA!! But, that would spoil the Republican apple cart...just turn around and ignore it, Joe. You guys will find some excuse, in your long and deep archive of horseshit excuses...to blame Obama!!

The NRA, where Kids just wanna have fun...the grown-up version, that is. They just don't want their toys, taken away!

The Republican Party...a wholly owned subsidiary of Koch Industry

By RF Schatten


It's official, the "John Birch Society" now owns the Grand Old Party...just ask Mitch!..who just admitted, the GOP wouldn't be financially anywhere, if it wasn't for Koch Family $$$.

Citizens United, Americans for Prosperity, FreedomWorks...what the hell, do you think they are?? 'John Birch' is not a politically correct name!! Fred C. Koch should be very proud of his 2 boys...they are carrying on his legacy and his dreams, to the max. The Brothers Koch, are living proof that $$$ buys you enough power, to overthrow a country's government...by simply purchasing its employees. People ought to learn more about Fred, the John Birch Society, and specially his 2 creepy human waste of sons, David and Charles. At least his other 2 sons, Fred Jr and William have enough self-respect and character, not to be part of Koch Industry...neither, have financial interests in the family business, whatsoever.

Now, talking about  just coincidences; the GOP agenda of anti-education, anti-environment, anti-minimum wage, anti-healthcare, anti- social entitlements, and every other issues...including Race Relations, Immigration, Voter suppression, Women, and Marriage Equality...just happens to be, by all coincidence, naturally...David Koch's agenda as the Libertarian VP candidate in 1980, and his own personal philosophy and the family's, about the power of Aristocracy. The thoughts of a Ruling Class Society, is not far from their imagination.

There's enough information about these two good ol' boys...about their wonderful philanthropy, their charities, their contribution to the Arts and Opera...wonderful! wonderful! But talk about the Koch Brothers who hold records in Pollution Fines, and Wrongful Death settlements...for polluting the streams and the water everywhere they operate. These 2 nice fellows, are not so nice when you get to meet them...ask the families of those who have died because of their company's neglect!! Mitch McConnell, the political whore that he is...wholeheartedly endorses the Koch Brothers, and specially the $$$ left by the side of the bed...every time they meet.

It's ironic that the Birchers were prominent during the last time, racial tension was so turbulent in this country...now, Black/White confrontations are beginning to resemble the pre-Civil Rights days, with FreedomWorks preaching John Birch's words.

America's neglect with its' own future

By RF Schatten


"When you look at politicians and congress, they're not really looking to the future; they're looking to get re-elected." ~~ Andrew Herrmann (former President, ASCE)

A crumbling American Infrastructure, that ranks 14th in the world...and we 'were' the model of the world!! That's the problem...we 'were', #1.  In Washington, all you hear is the "Blame Game"...but no one really wants to do, anything about it!! Why? Ignorance, time passes and no one really thinks about it...and the $$$ is usually needed for other things. A "Band-aid" mentality...temporary fixes, and a few 'no bid' contracts...you grease my palm, I'll grease yours. That's the American Way!!...but our infrastructure is still crumbling down, and what the hell, are we going to do about it?  At this moment in US History?...wait! wait! and wait some more...and when you're tired of waiting...you go again, and wait some more!! Do you really expect this Congress to do anything resembling, work?

The American Society of Civil Engineers rated our country's infrastructure D+. That's embarrassing, when our roads, bridges, and other structures are considered too dangerous to ride. The fatalities alone, caused by our failure to maintain good roads, should say something about our eminent future...if we rely so heavily on our roads, as we do today...particularly in the transportation of goods, and the importance of accessibility, something must be done. These roads and structures just don't go back to IKE or FDR...they go back to pre-1900s. Can't blame Obama, this time...this goes back to every administration since Ike was hitting 18 Holes.

Is there a fix-it kit, for this mess? FDR rebuilt a country...and put a load of people back to work. Eisenhower built the modern American Infrastructure, the envy of the world...and put a lot of people to work, too. It doesn't take a rocket scientist to put these equations, together. A complete reconstruction of the American Infrastructure will employ millions, and bring much needed $$$ and fresh blood to all the local economies. It's been suggested by this Administration, but an absurd idea from those bound to destroy any progress, this administration can make...even if it destroys this nation, on the way!! The job creators? really don't care...they got their $$$ stashed in offshore banks, find loopholes to move legal corporate homes, out of the country for Tax shelter...and outsource American jobs to India,Taiwan, or wherever they can save in labor costs.

Why would they care about the 14th best country's Infrastructure? they don't care about its people, now!!

Blame all your failures on someone else...that's, the cheap Republican way.

By RF Schatten

"Oh!! I can't do my job...because Obama is not being up to his job", "every single Republican failure, is Obama's Fault"...words of a Big Time Political Loser!! A coward, who'll sleep with anyone...as long as he can keep his Speaker's job. When you try to burn your candle on both ends...you're bound to end up getting burned...and if you have no scruples? you just don't give a shit!! You're just a Political whore...and you love it!!

It's nice to see the GOP is such a good humanitarian organization...how they care for the Poor, the Sick, the Elderly!...all that humility that just gushes out of them! How they care about equality, and educating our children for the challenges of the future, in a world where we could live pollution free, no Acid Rain or smog...with clean rivers and streams! Wait! Wait a minute!...that's not the GOP?...Sorry!! They're nice guys, who haven't passed a single piece of Legislation since they woke up, November 5th, 2008. Where's the Jobs Bill? Wage Increase? what have they done for the Vets...without public pressure? the unemployed middle class?...where's those extensions?
John Boehner is Speaker of the House...it's his 'job', to lead 435 Members, not just his Party's...but,
all 435. It's his job to pass Bipartisan Legislation, so it can proceed to the next step...and eventually, pass and become Law. Legislate...that's what the taxpayers elected him, for...and are paying
him to do.

Don't blame Congress? Yea!! it's their fault!...the least productive Congress in modern US History. Congratulations, John!! You may have a boss...and you may think he's not doing his job...but, he's still your boss!! And here's the punchline, pal: If you don't do your job...he will do it for ya, with Executive Orders. Anywhere else, you would've been fired for public disrespect of your superior...and most of all?...for not doing 'your' job, and creating your Party's
failures, as well, as all of your own. 


John Boehner Blames All Of His Failures On Obama Not Being Up To The Job Of President


Time for the'Show Me' State, to show something positive about Ferguson

BY RF Schatten

Mike Brown was shot at least 6 times...2 bullets to the head. That's murder...and that's why the Ferguson PD has been so silent.
 

The autopsy was performed by Dr. Michael Baden, well renowned Forensic Pathologist, who worked on the JFK and Martin Luther King Jr. cases...among others. “In my capacity as the forensic
examiner for the New York State Police, I would say, ‘You’re not supposed to shoot so many times’ ”. Brown's Attorney, Benjamin Crump, reiterated Baden's statement; “The sheer number of bullets, and the way they were scattered all over his body, showed this police officer had a brazen disregard for the very people he was supposed to protect in that community,”

How did this whole story first start? like all others. The Ferguson Police Dept. has had its moments with the Community, through the years. 50 White Police Officers and 3 Blacks...in a town that's 67% Black? Yes!! racism is very prominent in all of this. And for Conservatives, before they call it reverse racism? The fact that the town employs 50 Whites and only 3 Blacks...wouldn't you expect a little racist hate from the Community? Too many different witness views of the entire event...including the actual shots recorded from a smartphone. Though the general conclusion of events leading to the
shooting, remain the same. The fact that the body remained in the street for 2 to 3 hours...and the Paramedics were not allowed in, by the Ferguson PD...becomes a very serious question. Why?

I don't care whether Michael Brown was guilty of stealing some cigars. or whether he was charging at the cops or not. He stopped, raised his hands, and cried out; "I don't have a gun!! stop shooting"!! He raised his hands, and lowered his head...then, got shot through the head!!
Yea!! the Right will come with every excuse in the world, to justify the PD's action...but, the fact remains...if you shoot an unarmed person in the head, not just once, but twice!!...that's MURDER!!

Robin Williams in Hell? If you're from Westboro Baptist...you'll get to meet him

By RF Schatten

"Nothing in the world is more dangerous than sincere ignorance and conscientious stupidity" ~~ Martin Luther King, Jr.

The Westboro Baptist Church, may call themselves "Baptist"...but there's nothing Christian about them. This, is an example of the mentality of the American Christian Right. Just pure unadulterated vile Racism and Hatred. They call Roman Catholicism and Islam, "Devil Worshiping" ...they publicly hate Protestants, Lutherans, Anglicans, Methodists, etc, etc, etc...you get the point? There's not another Religion in the world, they believe is correct. Ethiopian Orthodoxy?...a big lie! Hinduism?...they set up the "God hates India" website (similar to "God Hates Fags") Judaism?..."A true Jew, is a Christian" "they are nothing more than typical, impenitent sinners ... they are the real Nazis, the vast majority of Jews support fags"!! The Westboro Baptist Church, just doesn't like anybody who's not like them...they worship hate and death. As Shirley Phelps-Roper said, the $200,000 the church annually spends to fly to funerals to protest, was money spent...to spread "God's Hate". When Fred died, Shirley said that she will not hold a Funeral, because they don't worship death...at least, no theirs!! They 'do' worship "Carcass", apparently.

This whole deal with Robin Williams, just shows their "sincere ignorance"...cause he acted as a gay person? Oh!! since Williams was one of those Hollywood Liberals, who was involved in Liberal and Progressive causes...naturally, he must have been gay? No stupid!! your "conscientious stupidity" just flows right out of you...he just happened to be a genius mind, trapped inside a great thespian's body. He could portray any character, and make him believable. Don't knock someone, on how they died!!...and why they did, what they did...unless you've gone through the same tormented pain!!. If you truly have gone through it all, like he did, with all the shit!!...you would understand, why!! You may not agree with his decision, but you understand...and you'll look at it, not with anger...but sorrow!!

The human waste, that calls themselves the Westboro Baptist Church, has the distinction of being the largest Homophobic Institution in this Nation. There's something about fanatic homophobic persecution, that brings out the "man" inside that Closet...like J.Edgar Hoover, and the tough guy...Roy Cohn...who fell to AIDS. They were both scum, and hypocrites...no different than Westboro Baptist.

"Disinformation"...that's the Republican way...or, better said, the Goebbels way!!

By RF Schatten 
 
The Republican Party publicly.condemns Gay Marriage, and has a deep hatred towards Homosexuality. They're against Women Rights, are against the Elderly, and don't care for Hispanics or any other Ethnic minority. The Blacks? In the eyes of the GOP, they're animals...as Ann Coulter likes to call the President..."The Monkey". They have no dignity or respect for the Poor or the Middle Class...they are against all Social Entitlements: Social Security for the elderly, Medicaid for the poor, Medicare for the elderly and the disabled...Obamacare...guaranteed health care for everyone, regardless who you are, and Food Stamps..."let them eat cake!!" They don't believe in unemployment compensation...if you lose your job? Tough shit!! If you're a Vet? Tough shit too. They're Anti-Children...some in the GOP talk about repealing Child Labor Laws. Take a look at the Children living in poverty today, going hungry, and how many in all those 'Red' States...don't get healthcare? And they're also Anti-Education...more like, 'Anti-Public' Education...they believe 'Private' education is the only way to go, and, if you have the $$$...if you don't? Oh, well...tough shit, again!!

We've seen what they're doing: Anti-Environment...they want to eliminate the EPA!!...just too many pollution fines to Koch Industries. Remaining ignorant or maybe, not too ignorant...on Climate Change. We see were they want to spend our Tax Dollars on...their Tax Dollars? Eliminate it!!...they 'are' the Job Creators, they say. They push for Corporations to save more Tax Dollars, that they already don't pay...by not only Outsourcing the work to other countries, but...allowing Corporations to make a profit from the income invested in Foreign Banks' Tax Shelters throughout the world. It's all about the money, not; We, the People.
Lets not forget, the immense Voter Suppression effort, throughout America...and the Racism, Hatred, Fear, and Violence...the remarks by Republicans, Christian Conservatives, and Tea Party loyalists. The filth and obscenities that come out of these, so called 'Christian' people...and their misrepresented moral values.

We see all this crap!! and you wonder why Fox News isn't enough? You know, what kind of trouble Conservative America must be in...when you have to make up stories, pay people to fake it, and say how bad their Obamacare Coverage is, and then have their Propaganda Puppets; Limbaugh and Beck...do their shtick, with their constant overflow of horseshit. And how they become paranoid, because Christianity is not the only Religious choice, today. Now, they have created over 20 Fake News sites...is their only way of winning, by lying? Disinformation?...the Republican Way!!

Ferguson Police Dept. 2009 & 2014: Nothing changes...just the victims

By RF Schatten 
 
Arrest the wrong suspect, beat the living daylights out of him in jail...and when you got to let him go? charge him with property damage...for dirtying your clothes with his spilled blood!!

Outrageous!! except it happened in 2009, again, in Ferguson. Race tensions and Police brutality is not something new, for Ferguson, Missouri. On Sept. 20th, 2009...Henry Davis was arrested on a warrant...except, it wasn't the same Henry Davis. The rest is history for that poor man...nothing happened to the cops, the DA dropped the property damage charges, he suit the Ferguson PD and lost...and now, it's in Federal Appeals Court. From past experience, wouldn't the Ferguson Police Dept. known better, than to do anything that would incite the actions, which occurred? Yes!! if you're on the Left...Maybe!! if you're on the Right...and No!! if you're FoxNews, as they scramble and try to seriously figure out, why they say "No"!!

It looks like Governor Jay Nixon, has ordered the Missouri State Police, to take over the situation...and 'one' man, Capt. Ron Johnson, who's the new Commander for Ferguson...appears to have the most level mind, in the entire Show Me State. He's showing what a little understanding and psychology can accomplish...Missouri State Troopers, and led by Ron Johnson, marched alongside the protesters rather than ordering them off the streets. Besides bringing some calmness to an already tense situation, Johnson's march, is a clear message that Law Enforcement agencies around this country, needs to be seriously reformed...they're not para-military units, among other things.

Ferguson, Missouri has become a Bipartisan ground zero...Democrats and Republicans are literally talking, and agreeing with each other...and turning the issue into a national discourse. It must feel pretty lonely, up there on top...for FOX now days...justifying murder and violence. Expect Rupert to change his tune on justifications...it's what's best for business.
