Really? Tell you what you do. Go back to the biggest tax cut ever on the Richest in America during Reagan and see what happened to the middle class from that point on. The Repub Trickle Down from the top was the beginning of the middle class demise.

Back then, just getting out of school, found a job, career, made enough to have a good retirement now. It was a good time for all the poor and the middle class. This is where most of us fit in. The best of times. You just should have been here then, and maybe you would realize your spiel is off base.

Republican leaders asked to speak at March on Washington anniversary, declined

Conservatives complaining that the March on Washington anniversary celebration seems awfully partisan should note that they have only themselves to blame.

Speaker John A. Boehner and Majority Leader Eric Cantor, the House’s two most senior Republicans, were invited to speak at the 50th anniversary of the historic March on Washington — but declined.[…]

“They asked a long list of Republicans to come,”[civil rights activist Julian Bond]
continued,“and to a man and woman they said ‘no.’ And that they would turn their backs on this event was telling of them, and the fact that they seem to want to get black votes, they’re not gonna get ‘em this way.”

Boehner instead spoke at a small Congressional ceremony. Eric Cantor's reason for not being there, though, is rather odd:

Cantor, meanwhile, was asked 12 days ago to participate in Wednesday’s event commemorating Martin Luther King Jr.’s delivery of the famous “I Have a Dream” speech, according to an aide. The Virginia Republican, however, is currently traveling in North Dakota and Ohio, touring energy sites with Rep. Kevin Cramer, R-N.D., and participating in “nonofficial events,” according to an aide.

Hmm. You know, when someone asks you to participate in the anniversary celebration of one of the most important inflection points of modern American history, you should generally say yes.

You certainly shouldn't blow them off to tour North Dakota fracking sites, or whatever the hell he's claiming was more important.

That said, I disagree with Bond. I think declining a speaking spot was a perfectly appropriate choice on the part of conservative leaders, or at least the more intellectually honest one. Efforts to portray conservative reaction to the civil rights movement as anything less than hostile at the time (and hostile now) are insultingly dishonest, and having the community organizers, activists, spiritual leaders and labor leaders of that time putatively honored on the same spot by people like John Boehner or Eric Cantor, people who have open contempt for many of the goals expressed by those same leaders even now, might have been a bigger sin than any pretense at modern fluffy nonpartisanship could justify. Hooray that they were politely asked; hooray that they politely said no.

If Eric Cantor believes that it is more important to wander rural North Dakota in self-imposed exile than to show up to honor the 50th anniversary of one of the great moments and movements in American history, I am not about to argue with him. If only the rest of the conservative movement had even half as much self-restraint.

http://www.dailykos.com/story/2013/08/28/1234...

Zero chance of getting the black vote once again. Nothing like acting like the racist creeps they are on an important date in America. They don't believe in MLK's dream, why would they show. No photo ops for them. Pretty disgusting of them. Pretty TYPICAL of them.

Republicans are Courting Disaster as 57% of Americans Oppose Defunding Obamacare

A new Kaiser Health Tracking Poll released today found that Republicans are on the wrong course again, as 57% of respondents oppose their efforts to defund Obamacare.

The Kaiser Health Tracking Poll found that by a margin of 57%-36%, Americans oppose the Republican efforts to defund Obamacare. Democrats most strongly disapprove at 81%-15%. Independents disapprove by a margin of 53%-39%, but Republicans approve of the idea 60%-34%. Those who hold a favorable view of the ACA disapprove of the the efforts to defund the law 83%-14, and those who hold an unfavorable view support defunding 60%-33%.
This graphic shows that nearly 70% of Americans believe that using the budgetary process to defund Obamacare is not how our government is supposed to work:

It turns out that a large majority of the American people don’t want Obamacare defunded. It should come as a surprise to no one that the political instincts of Rand Paul, Ted Cruz, Mike Lee, Jim DeMint, and Sarah Palin are completely out of step with the rest of the country. The only people who support the defund movement are the tiny base of Republicans that the right spends most of their time appealing to.

If the Republican Party caves to the right and shuts down the government in an effort to defund Obamacare, they will be courting an epic political disaster. Republicans will be taking a stand that is unpopular with nearly 60% of the country.

Politically, shutting down the government over Obamacare could be the straw that breaks the camel’s back in the 2014 elections.

A majority of Americans don’t support a government shutdown, or the defunding of the ACA. Mitch McConnell and many of the Senate Republicans are likely to hold out against the defund movement, but weak kneed John Boehner and his far right House caucus could shutdown the government with glee.

This is setting up a situation where the unpopular and out of control House Republicans drag down their entire party with their extremism.

Republicans already know that Obama won’t be blamed for a government shutdown, but that isn’t enough to stop House Republicans from undertaking their yearly act of political self destruction.

Political suicide. Like the lemmings they are.

The Republican Party Is Not Just Two Faced, But Split In Half

With the GOP’s recent fragmentation into it’s various separate war camps, from Libertarians to the Tea Party, Bible-Thumpers to Moderates, things are on unsteady ground as far as the future of the right wing. One thing is certain however, and almost universally agreed upon- voters want a change.

The Pew Research Center recently published a study detailing some of the varied concerns expressed by conservative voters, and the results are staggering- two thirds said their party needed to address major problems in order to be able to compete in future elections, be they congressional or presidential, and a hefty 59% contended that to continue to exist, and receive their votes, the party would need to make alterations to at least one of their core positions.

Across the board, Republican voters are -not- happy with GOP leaders, often even expressing displeasure with those of the same shard as themselves, be they moderate Republicans, or extreme conservatives. While this journalist may agree that there are some things seriously wrong with the GOP, unfortunately however, that’s where the agreeance ends, the reason being that 54% desire for their party to take a more conservative outlook. Never fear, your faith in humanity needn’t be completely gone however, as a surprising 41% actually want a more moderate course to be taken, and 29% would even be willing to contend that their party has not compromised enough in recent years, with the remaining 71% being split fairly equally between the remaining options of,“the right amount” and,“not enough”.
This of course raises the question as to where the voters disenfranchised by the inevitable shift will go. Will the party fragment and lose relevance due to pressure from the voting block coupled with internal power struggles and stress-driven dissent? Will the party lunge sharply to one side or the other, and, if so, for whom do the voters disliking the change of events vote for? Whatever the end result, it appears that an iceberg is looming for Boehner’s Titanic, and the end result isn’t going to be very pretty for those still on board. Probably best to jump ship now onto a lifeboat to safer shores.

What is to be taken from all of this? In reality, that depends on who you are, and what the bigwigs choose to do- in the ideal situation, you welcome ex-Republicans and try to enlighten them in regards to the lies they’ve been fed for years by FOX, and help enlighten their views about their fellow man, help them understand that equality is important, for one and for all. If you happen to be one of the up-and-ups in the GOP, take this simply as advice- you’re a false step away from screwing yourself out of your political career, forever- and let’s face it, if you’re a GOP head, you’ve never worked a day in your life, you have no real world experience, and no job skills. In short, get on the right side of history.

How To Prove Obama LOWERED The Deficit In Four Easy And Indisputable Steps

The GOP, Fox News and AM Hate Radio regularly complain that Obama has raised the deficit. This is a lie. A very VERY big lie. It’s such a big lie and so easy to prove as a big lie that the fact 90% of the country thinks it’s true is one the greatest failures of the “liberal” media since they couldn’t be bothered to vet the Iraq War. The problem is that conservatives don’t want to know, independents can’t be bothered to look and liberals should be deeply ashamed for not knowing.
But worry not! It’s very VERY easy to clear up this misperception (and piss off conservatives to boot!) in just 4 simple steps.

Step One: Establish the facts of what the deficit is and how it works – Ask the conservative, uninformed “independent” or naughty liberal if they understand that the deficit is not the same as the debt. This is super important because the right has gone VERY far out of its way to confuse the two. And for good reason; the debt has never been higher. This is inevitable since we still have a deficit. The debt is a byproduct of the deficit. The only way to pay down the debt is to turn the deficit into a surplus.

The deficit is how much more we spend than we collect in revenue (taxes, etc.). The debt is how much we owe. The deficit is the credit card, the debt is the bill. A bill that the right wants to pin completely on Obama as if we didn’t have a penny of debt until he took office instead of having been built by almost a century of deficit spending by both Republican and Democratic presidents (but mostly Republican).

Do not proceed until these basic definitions are agreed upon or the conservative will attempt to weasel out of the hole you are digging for them by whining about how Obama increased the debt. If they try, mention that every president except Clinton has done that since World War II, why should Obama be singled out? When they invariably say “Because he’s gone higher than any president ever has!” The same was true of Bush at the time and no one on the right seemed upset about it. Ask them to explain why that is or to drop it and move on. Chances are they’ll drop it.

Step Two: Establish when the budget is passed – This is another deliberate lie the right LOVES to pass around. They would very much like you to believe that the 2009 budget with its record shattering $1.4 Trillion deficit was Obama’s. The reality is that budgets are passed and signed into law at the end of the year before. So the 2000 budget was signed into law by President Clinton and President Bush was stuck with it. In 2017, whoever takes the White House will have a budget signed into law in 2016 by the outgoing President Obama. Therefor, the 2009 budget was not “Obama’s,” it was Bush’s. If you need to prove this definitively, share this link to the CATO Institute. The CATO Institute is a respected but undeniably right-wing thing tank. The opening paragraph in their “About Us” section says:“The Cato Institute is a public policy research organization — a think tank – dedicated to the principles of individual liberty, limited government, free markets and peace.” No one in their right mind can argue the CATO Institute is “liberal.” Yet they clearly state that the 2009 budget does not belong to Obama.
