CONtinued:

Michele Bachmann loves praising Jesus in front of the camera, but ended up deciding not to run for re-election when the spotlight was put on her campaignís possible corruption. Rand Paul paints himself as a filibustering hero taking on worldwide evil, but the reality is that his crusades are all dramatics without much substance.

Republicans love to accuse Obama of being an empty suit, but the Republican bench is where you have to go to see politicians living the life of arena-packing fundamentalist charlatans, who talk a big game but arenít interested in delivering real services to their followers. The entire House of Republicans is quickly becoming notorious for being a bunch of do-nothings who love preening for the cameras but canít be bothered to govern.

The entire battle over Obamacare shows that the heavy dramatics/minimal substance model brought over from religious charlatans has become the way the Republican Party does business these days.

Itís not just the 42-and-counting votes to repeal Obamacare. Itís that Republicans have decided to actively screw their constituents over in order to pose like true heroes for the cause.

The Medicaid expansion is the classic example. Generally speaking, even if voters in a state disapprove of the federal government spending tax money on a program, representatives who canít end the disapproved-of federal program will opt for their state to take the money. Otherwise, itís not fair to the voters. They paid into the federal tax accounts, and should be able to see their share coming back to them for that. This need to be fair to their voters means Republican politicians may vote the way voters want them to on social programs, but at the end of the day, if the programs are going to exist, theyíre going to take their fair share.

But most Republican governors and legislatures have opted this go-round to refuse to take on the Medicaid expansion, even though that means turning down their fair share of the money their voters have paid into the system already. Itís about making a dramatic gesture to make the audience ooh and ah, all while hoping they donít notice theyíre not actually getting the results they wanted. Much like a faith healer hitting you on the head and leaving town with your money before you realize youíre not actually cured, Republicans know that the only result of this gesture is that the voters are going to pay their tax money without seeing any return on their investment. Itís a complete abdication of the basic responsibilities of looking out for the interests of the voters.

Obviously, the right has always had a charlatan side, with plenty of self-appointed leaders viewing the faithful as marks to bilk for cash instead of giving people the services promised.

Faith healers and other religious conmen have preyed on fundamentalist Christian audiences for over a century now. As historian Rick Perlstein wrote in the Baffler, conservative media has long subsisted on selling snake oil to their followers and running mail order schemes to defraud conservative readers while making the leaders wealthy. But, by and large, Republicans of the past did consider it a duty to actually work for the people who elected them. That relationship has fundamentally changed. Like megachurch pastors who praise Jesus and pass the collection plate but canít remember their parishionersí names, the modern Republican sees the voters as rubes he can hoodwink into sending him to D.C. while not doing any actual work for them.

I found a great article about their version of Jesus, it is long but I want to make sure it don't get lost in the roll and scroll we have to do, don't want my fellow libs to miss it, and topix might not post it if is too long. It is so dead on, and exactly like my slogans I was posting:

JESUS didn't teach us to hate the Poor and worship Wealth. Satan did.

Jesus doesn't care how many bible verses you have memorized.
He cares about how you treat people.

You might be a RepubliCON if...

You talk about Christian principles, but not live by them.

You've ever tried to prove Jesus was a capitalist and opposed to welfare.

In Paul Ryan's Bible Jesus doesn't heal the elderly, he gives them a voucher and wishes them good luck with the insurance company. Bigotry wrapped in prayers is still bigotry.(lush loon)

If Pro is the opposite of CON, then what is the opposite of progress....Congress lol

DemonicRATS can't run fast enough from their own creation and president's NOT so great achievement Obamacare, because of the next elections. That tells you how much they care for the people or their own careers, greedy bastards.
They all deserve to get kick in the behind on the way out. CONgress is just that...all our politicians are CONS.

Obama puts his presidency on the line to promise to all of us how great Obamacare is going to be, but it will go in history as the biggest lie ever and a FRAUD. Robbing American taxpayers of 630 million $$$ for something that was D.O.A. Yes this president is incompetent, he doesn't know anything. He is always absent ...!!

DON'T LET HIM DESTROY THE BEST COUNTRY ON EARTH.

FAIRFAX, VAóIn the wake of Mondayís tragic Nevada school shooting in which a 12-year-old student killed a teacher and wounded two classmates, representatives from the National Rifle Association pushed for all teachers around the country to keep a loaded gun pointed at their classes throughout the school day. ďThe only way to ensure safety in our schools is to make sure teachers hold fully loaded firearms at students from the moment they walk into the classroom until the moment they leave,Ē said NRA Executive Vice President Wayne LaPierre, explaining that educators should, at the very least, point one 9mm semiautomatic pistol at the class while also keeping a concealed .357 magnum revolver and several spare cartridges of ammo nearby at all times. ďIf teachers need to write on the board or turn the page of a textbook, they should always use their free hand while keeping the gun at face level of all students and holding one finger firmly on the trigger. Frankly, this is just common sense if we want to prevent these tragedies like Nevada from happening again in the future.Ē LaPierre added that for maximum security, teachers should give all lessons from underneath their desks while blindly firing a semiautomatic M4 carbine assault rifle in all directions.

Do you have any stats on how many people have been murdered with hatchets? Poison? Knives? Rocks? Hammers? Strangulation by rope, wires, hands? Should we start the ban on those weapons? You forgot to post how many murders were caused by those weapons.

What about the ACCIDENTS caused by weapons? Did you not dig into those stats for your cause? How many cars/vehicles have killed people in the last year. If guns kill people then cars are responsible for killing people. Guns don't kill people. People kill people. They will find a way to kill their victims even if there is no gun to steal. When did you want to start the protest to outlaw cars and knives and rocks and medication and wires and rope and hammers and blah, blah, blah?

I'm hoping you were going for sarcasm because nobody could really be as dumb as you portray yourself to be on here.

And Obamacare will stop that...how? Pill heads will still go to the ER because they couldn't get an appointment with their regular doctor to get their dope. Illegals will still walk into the ER and receive free healthcare. People who will choose to pay the cheaper fine rather than purchase insurance will still go to the ER when they have a snotty nose. Many doctors will give up their private practice because they can no longer afford their practice (thanks to Obamacare) sign on with a hospital. Where do you think you will have to go to see your doctor? Meet in the Walmart parking lot? lol The ER's will be overflowing with people and your chances of getting timely, adequate health care...just went down the shitter with the Obamacare website.

More than 100K unintentional deaths happen in the home each year.

A few of the culprits are,dishwashers,space heaters and swimming pools.
