Wjhat Republicans Do and "Think"!

Rep. Tom Cotton (R-Ark.) on Wednesday introduced legislation that would "automatically" punish family members of people who violate U.S. sanctions against Iran, levying sentences of up to 20 years in prison.

The provision was introduced as an amendment to the Nuclear Iran Prevention Act of 2013, which lays out strong penalties for people who violate human rights, engage in censorship, or commit other abuses associated with the Iranian government.

Cotton also seeks to punish any family member of those people, "to include a spouse and any relative to the third degree," including, "parents, children, aunts, uncles, nephews nieces, grandparents, great grandparents, grandkids, great grandkids," Cotton said.

"There would be no investigation," Cotton said during Wednesday's markup hearing before the House Foreign Affairs Committee. "If the prime malefactor of the family is identified as on the list for sanctions, then everyone within their family would automatically come within the sanctions regime as well. It'd be very hard to demonstrate and investigate to conclusive proof."

More foaming of ignorance, Bush OCD and turdlets of anger from joe.

Still, he cannot specifically point to any of these laudable "attempt(s) Obama has made to 'speed up job creation' in PRIVATE SECTOR other than handing out more trillions of fake money FOR FREE at Taxpayers' expense to his rich Fat Cat Wall Street Banker string-pullers and in unsustainable spending on entitlements to more and more NOT to work, but to go on disability, UE, and food stamps, making the federal government a bigger generator of dead-end un-skilled, low-wage net-drag-on-the-economy jobs than Wal-Mart and McDonald's combined.

That's joe's idea of the "good stuff" in this incompetent amateur's disastrous fiscal and economic policy mismanagement.

How's that working out today, joe?

It is truly laughable to watch tea bag geezers whip out their projections every time they get caught with their lies and stovepipe thinking exposed.

It's instructive though, watching them grasp at ONLY the news items that seem to back their childishly simple-minded views of reality. Central to those views is the precept that:

"Obama shall be responsible and blamed for everything...that is deemed bad and shall not be mentioned for anything deemed good."

This coupled with the bizarre contradiction that Obama is an "incompetent amateur" while still being a diabolical crypto-socialist who is taking over the country, taking away guns and transforming the Constitution into Sharia law.

And that only Republicans understand foreign policy and economics and the Constitution and are always right in all things. I mean they're the Party that foisted the "Unitary Presidency" on us.

Do not be fooled. The right wing teddy's of this country/world mean to do ill. They mean to hurt other Americans if they don't get their way (the sequestration, cutting food stamps, cutting affordable healthcare, trashing MediCare, profitizing Social Security, etc.). And that way is back to the fantasy tv land of the 1950's.

Why would anyone but idiots and the uneducated listen to and give credibility to calls to hate liberals, lefties and even "progressives" along with the subhuman, evil and moronic Democrats?

There's a sickness on the right and it's disgusting and will be castigated at every opportunity.

The Modern Republican TeaBagger (Teddy) Credo:

We promise -
To destroy jobs with austerity, to take away voting and reproductive rights, to destroy agencies that protect the environment from industry and consumers from predatory banks and to deprive the working poor of affordable health care.

Hey nac, you'll love this:

As a rule, large capitalists are Republicans and small capitalists are Democrats, but workingmen must remember that they are all capitalists, and that the many small ones, like the fewer large ones, are all politically supporting their class interests, and this is always and everywhere the capitalist class.

He (Ken Rogoff) seriously undermines himself right away with the dubious claim that austerity is not hurting Europe. Not even former austerity fanatics such as Olli Rehn -- who once approvingly quoted Rogoff in pushing austerity -- believe this any more. As the Financial Times' Martin Wolf argues convincingly, with many brightly colored charts, austerity brought the eurozone's recovery from the financial crisis of 2008 to a screeching halt.

Confronted with evidence of the damage austerity has done throughout Europe, including devastating harm to people's health, Rehn and other austerians have recently loosened some of the fetters they had placed on Greece and other countries in exchange for bailout money.

Eight Men Consider House Bill To Restrict Women's Reproductive Rights

An all-male panel of House lawmakers considered a bill on Thursday that would ban abortions after 20 weeks of pregnancy across the United States, without exceptions for rape, incest or health of the mother.

The House Judiciary Subcommittee on the Constitution, led by the bill's sponsor, Rep. Trent Franks (R-Ariz.), has no female members.

News flash for joe - the US isn't Europe - not yet anyway - and the basket-case socialist states have nothing of value to teach the US about how to build vibrant, growing private economies and strong fiscal systems.

Only a fool (e.g.,HuffPo readers) would point to Europe as providing any kind of economic or fiscal wisdom for the US to pay ANY attention to - especially when it's the US and Bernanke who's propping them up.

Greece, indeed ... what a joke. They're facing austerity only and precisely because of 50 years of slacker joe-economics of State dependency.

I can't tell who's dumber, you or teddy. I suppose because it was in the Huffington Post it isn't true. Or would you have preferred it if I paraphrased the report. Personally, I prefer to just share the reports, posts, news items etc., with you in the fastest method.

Here's what the Republican Party believes in:

An all-male panel of House lawmakers considered a bill on Thursday that would ban abortions after 20 weeks of pregnancy across the United States, without exceptions for rape, incest or health of the mother.

Right Wing Flagrant Hypocrisy

How could you think that either one of us is dumber than the other? It is your opinion that everyone to the right of you is exactly the same and all believe things like "Jesus wrote the bible," "women should be paid less than men," "Iraq was responsible for 9/11," etc.
Right, joe? Everyone that has independent thought obviously isn't smart enough to know that true intelligence is parroting HuffPo all day.
And if someone is not arroting HuffPo all day, then they must be a backwards righty that believes Obama was born on the moon, right?

I notice you're not refuting:

"Jesus wrote the bible," "women should be paid less than men," "Iraq was responsible for 9/11,"

and neither will your soul mate, teddy.

Let's see... do believe in labor unions, a living minimum wage, free public education? etc. What do you consider the poverty level to be, what about unemployment insurance or welfare?

She speaks for you, righty:

A host of the Fox News show The Five was so angry that the Justice Department had investigated one of the network’s reporters that she told her viewers on Thursday to find anyone who voted for President Barack Obama and “punch them in the face.”

“Fox said, we’re targets, clearly Media Matters and others have put us on a target list,” Fox News host Andrea Tantaros explained on the Thursday edition of her radio show.“And they said,‘Oh, Fox is just crazy! They’re just paranoid!’ Really? Are we?”

"...find anyone who voted for President Barack Obama and “punch them in the face." Nice.

As an example of how "open minded" you are ,nac, I'd like to see you provide some reputable examples of this kind of hate talk from the left.

Sorry joe, I'm not Fox News host Andrea Tantaros... Her comments have nothing to do with me. You're being childish, as usual.

Further, if you're looking for "some reputable examples of this kind of hate talk from the left," I'm not interested in doing the work for you... Just google "George Bush" or "Sara Palin." You'll find plenty of examples of your heroes on the left spewing hate.

When you're done, why don't you come back here and cut & paste some of your favorite quotes ... ya know, to stick it to righty.
