There is not such thing as corporate welfare, that is a made up word by liberals
If a worker needs government assistance in the form of tax credits or extra allowances to ensure they are above 130% of state poverty while working for a corporation which posts millions of dollars in profits year on year.......who is on welfare?

The worker who needs the money to stay out of poverty or the corporation whose wage bill is being subsidised by the tax payer?

LOL so finishing high school, getting married, having children, getting a job, keeping said job...will save you from poverty?

People don't get divorced? People don't ever lose their jobs or suffer from health issues which may affect their employment status? Businesses don't fold or get taken over by larger companies who maximise profits by cutting wages?

Nothing happens in your world does it? Do you live in the 1950's?

The low wage economy with republicans attempting to remove social safeguards and cut the minimum wage have absolutely nothing to do with it?

Yes we know your first social programs on your list to cut were Social Security and Medicare. There are a few nations that have no social programs. The ones that do not are all found in the poorest nations like those nations in Africa.

Strange isn't it? The richer a nation (GDP and per person income) the MORE social programs those nations have and the nations without any are the poorest. Using Repub logic should that FACT not be the opposite??

American Jihad 2014: The New Fundamentalists

Sorry Republicans, the “Sissy Liberals” Were Right About Iraq All Along

Post-9/11 Republicans seem to have real chip on their shoulder. In the events after the greatest attack on American soil, Republicans turned a new leaf and changed their ideology from 1980s Reaganomics of the 90s (although they’re coming back to that) to if you go against what I want, you’re un-American. The conservative ideology is as followed: do what I say no matter how ridiculous, believe what I believe no matter how offensive, and if you disagree with me that means you hate America and want the Taliban to win.

So when the Republicans lied the Democrats into signing on with the Wars in Iraq and Afghanistan under false pretenses, they did so with two missions which were occupation, and oil. However, Republicans ran on a pro-American, pro-veteran standpoint in order to gain support from the vulnerable American public who were shell-shocked in post 9-11 America. And if any liberal, or any rational thinking person for that matter dared to speak out against the war (can you say Dixie Chicks?), the hawkish conservative movement would denounce you as a traitor to your country, much like they did to the soldiers in Vietnam. But at the time, unlike Iraq, Americans came to realize that war in Vietnam was the worst militaristic occupation in American history. According to the Gallup Polling Center, in March 2003 when the War in Iraq commenced, 75% of Americans thought it was the right thing for the U.S. to do while only 23% took the opposite view. By March 2013, 10 years after conflict started, and two years after it had ended, 53% of Americans said it was the wrong thing to have done, and 42% said it was the right thing to have done.

In the same polling over the course of the Iraq War’s ten year conflict, almost every poll done from Gallup starting in January 2005 and ending in March 2013 concluded that the majority of Americans felt that the War was a mistake. The numbers of those who dissented to the war hit an all-time high in July 2007 when 62% of Americans did not support our “efforts,” while only 36% did.

It’s worth noting that 75% of Americans supported “liberal” Obama’s decision to withdraw nearly all U.S. troops from Iraq by the end of 2011. Only 21% disapproved.

Not surprisingly, the conservatives called the liberals crazy when we said Pres. Bush and his allies in the White House had intentionally misled us about this war. They said that we had latched onto the crackpot theory that our good ole’ American boy, W., could have misled his darling public of patriots into a conflict that killed over 4,000 American troops.

So I guess you could say the liberals weren’t the crazy, conspiracy theory throwing sissies the conservatives painted us to be for so many years. You see, here is the difference between the liberal and the conservative: the liberal is patriotic, but they are realists. If something is bad, we can smell it a mile away. The conservative on the other hand is just patriotic (or so they say). Even if all the evidence points in the opposite direction, they will hound you as being a “liberal.” That’s their evil word, apparently. One ideology supports our country’s efforts only when we know we must be realistic. The other supports our countries efforts even when it turns out to be a big flop which cost us $4-6 trillion dollars and killed over 4,000 American troops. They’ll drape themselves in the flag and hope for the best.

It was Ann Coulter, famous Iraq War supporter and Muslim hater who said “the Democrats slogan during the Bush years was:“Dissent is patriotic!”” According to polls conducted over ten years (what’s known as longitudinal study), dissent turns out to be patriotic. What do you know, the “liberal sissies” were right all along.

Hypocrisy: If Conservatives Love Jesus, Why do they Hate Pope Francis?

When it comes to influential voices in Christianity, Republicans seem to disown and outcast those who truly live up to Jesus’s expectations, and prefer to idolize those who make outrageous and hateful comments. Why do they do it? It’s because true Christianity doesn’t conform to the right-wing, religious doctrine.

When Francis assumed role as the Pontiff, the Catholic Church was in desperate need of reforms. Plagued it was in scandals of child molestation, ridiculous amounts of focus on mainly social issues such as homosexuality and contraception, and ignorance of suffering in the world as rampant poverty grows. With Francis taking on the role of St. Peter’s successor, promising the utmost focus on the poor and needy, you would think the conservatives of America, the one’s who call themselves true Christians, would be buoyed.

However, as we know just ten months into his papacy, American conservatives hate his guts.

As Fox News contributor Adam Shaw wrote in his December 2013 article,“Pope Francis is the Catholic Church’s Obama – God help us all.” As he concluded later on, Shaw confuses the compassionate Francis with the less popular and less effective Benedict:“As a Catholic, I do hope Francis’ papacy is a successful one, but from his first months he seems hell-bent on a path to undo the great work of Benedict XVI…and to repeat critical mistakes of the past.”

Apparently,“like Obama, Francis loves attacking straw men.” Whatever that means.

Aw yes, critical mistakes. Making the most charitable church in the world focus not on the poor, but instead focus on contraception and sweeping molestation scandals under the rug, like Benedict did, is “undoing the great work.”

Thank you, Fox News, for your very persuasive investigative journalism on how the successor of St. Peter should be. Maybe we should appoint Roger Ailes or Rupert Murdoch as the next Pontiff?

While Rush Limbaugh and Fox News are busy calling the newly appointed Pope a Marxist who “attacks straw men,”(aka bringing attention to the poor, sick, and needy), they continue to idolize people like Pat Robertson and now Phil Robertson. Is Robertson now the last name of the chosen ones, like house of David or House of Abraham?

It is no secret that the religious right absolutely idolizes Pat Robertson, host of the very “Christian” CNB, ABC Family, and Fox Family program The 700 Club. Apparently, Pope Francis is a socialist-Marxist- Un-Christian heathen when he points out that many aspects of modern Capitalism are being abused and thus sucking the life out of the most vulnerable. However, Pat Robertson is a true leader of the Christian movement when he says:

-“(T)he feminist agenda is not about equal rights for women. It is about a socialist, anti-family political movement that encourages women to leave their husbands, kill their children, practice witchcraft, destroy capitalism and become lesbians.”

-“Maybe we need a very small nuke thrown off on Foggy Bottom to shake things up.”

- Telling a woman on how to keep her man from cheating on her, by saying “Like it or not, males have a tendency to wander a little bit. What you want to do is make a home so wonderful that he doesn’t want to wander”

- Calling for the assassination of Hugo Chavez.

- Saying the earthquake in Haiti was a “blessing in disguise,” and that they somehow deserved it because “something happened a long time ago in Haiti, and people might not want to talk about it.”

Conservatives, listen up: I’ll take a “socialist Pope” over a TV host who says we should nuke our government, women should be subservient so their husbands don’t cheat, someone should assassinate a leader, and that the people of Haiti deserved what they got.

Republicans and Conservative zealots are always wondering why people turn away from Christianity. It’s because of people like Pat Robertson. However, the amount of people, the amount of self-proclaimed atheists who adore the Pope, is staggering. Perhaps what the people want is a compassionate Christian who truly gets it. Not a polemic like Pat Robertson who says gays give each other AIDS through special rings.

It was Republican Barry Goldwater who said, in 1994 “when you say “radical right” today, I think of these moneymaking ventures by fellows like Pat Robertson and others who are trying to take the Republican party and make a religious organization out of it. If that ever happens, kiss politics goodbye.”

Other Conservatives, who the religious-right adore, have never obtained any degrees asserting their “knowledge” of God. They include, but are not limited to: Michele Bachmann, Sarah Palin, Louie Ghomert, Glenn Beck, Rush Limbaugh, Ann Coulter, Paul Ryan, The Westboro Baptist Church (whose leader, Fred Phelps, has run as a candidate on the Democratic ticket), and now the Duck Dynasty Clan.

But if the Pope, who has been a minister since 1969, says anything about the will of Jesus, the right bash him and looks for the answers in one of the names listed above. The leader of over a billion Christians is no match to book-sellers and politicians. Go figure.

Any religion or denomination of a religion (in this case, the church of Conservatism) that says wealth/power/social status is a sign of “Divine Favor” was obviously created by people with wealth/power/social status.

That right there is why Rush Limbaugh, whose contract is worth over $300 million, calls the Pope a “Marxist.” And because he says is, his millions of followers will believe it and preach it themselves as if they were ordained ministers.

If you check the latest finding in the field of psychology and neuroscience you will find that conservatives and liberals brains work differently. Conservatives are a fearful bunch and that is what drives them more than anything – their fear.

The Conservatives fear the progressive, God-fearing,“radical” Pope. Just like the Romans did when they encountered Jesus of Nazareth.
History repeats itself.


Loving the Pope. He will inspire votes for the DEMS.

GOP = themselves, BIG CORPS/PHARMA, and $$$$$$$$$$

Democrats Release a Video of CNN’s John King Comparing Christie to Nixon

The Democratic National Committee seized on Chris Christie’s imploding Bridgegate scandal today. They’ve already released a video clip of Christie saying he’ll show D.C.“how it’s done,” and then CNN’s John King saying many are comparing Christie to Nixon. Ouch.
“They’re saying this guy sounds like Richard Nixon, he sounds vindictive…”

Watch here:

The Republican Governor made sure his scandal wouldn’t go away today by blaming his staff for the petty revenge bullying behind the deliberate closure of a lane on the bridge that ended up causing real harm to several people who needed medical care, tragically including a 91-year-old woman dying.

Christie is indeed showing D.C. how it’s done, Nixon style — in case anyone forgot.

Unless he’s implicated directly, Christie can still run for President in 2016 and Democrats will have plenty of fun running ads like the above.
Christie’s real problem is that he has been caught on tape being a bully repeatedly, and he in fact revels in the image. It’s a big part of his appeal to the GOP base. The problem is that the rest of America doesn’t want a vindictive bully in the White House. It’s just not presidential.


"I'm not a crook"...hahaha

"I'm not a bully"...hahaha

Marco Rubio Embarrasses Himself By Claiming Marriage Is the Solution To Poverty

Plagiarism is appropriating another person’s language, thoughts, ideas, or expressions, and representing them as one’s own original work. There are variations of plagiarism that include purloining sections of a decades-old speech and passing it off as one’s expression of compassion with the hope few would remember the speech was 28 years old. There has been a phony push this past week by Republicans to rebrand the party as compassionate and address the crushing income inequality that is responsible for a horrific increase in the number of Americans wallowing in poverty. Republicans are suddenly “compassionate” because it is the 50th anniversary of Lyndon Johnson’s declaration of war on poverty that current Republicans have done their best to increase over the past five years. Twenty-eight years ago another Republican made a phony push to address poverty and declared Johnson’s war on poverty effort a failure, and blamed government anti-poverty programs for increasing poverty and causing the breakdown of families by discouraging marriage.

On Wednesday, another Republican, Marco Rubio, parroted conservative man-turned-god Ronald Reagan and stated emphatically that “big government’s War on Poverty is a failure” and repeated Reagan’s assessment that getting rid of federal programs is critical to combat poverty. Rubio also argued against welfare, extending unemployment benefits, raising the minimum wage, and called for gutting regulations and the tax code, imposing serious austerity on the government, and employing “the greatest tool to lift children and families from poverty; it’s called marriage.” Rubio’s solution to the “marriage problem” is turning “Washington’s anti-poverty programs and the trillions spent on them over to the states.” However, that idea has not worked out for millions of Americans in Republican states that turned down free federal funding for Medicaid expansion, and it may not be a good idea to turn “flexible” funding over to states to pursue their own solutions; solutions that always entail greater tax cuts for the rich and corporations and not to combat poverty. Republicans still advocate giving more money to the rich and corporations that, after thirty years, is responsible for the stifling income inequality and the growing peasant class that marriage, cutting regulations and taxes, or harsher austerity will never remedy.

It is unclear when Republicans’ ignorant supporters will get the message that it is insane to try the same things over and over again and expect a different result. Neither marriage, gutting regulations and the tax code, eliminating food stamps, Social Security, Medicare, or Medicaid will put an end to poverty crushing the life out of tens-of-millions of Americans and Republicans know it. It is why they continue their thirty year crusade to create poverty that increases income inequality that has benefitted the wealthy and corporations for decades. Rubio, like Reagan’s, nod to marriage serves no other purpose than appease the religious right and keep them voting for Republicans even though they are likely struggling to escape poverty themselves even though they are happily married opposite-sex couples.


haha, I guess if GRANDrand can use plagiarism, ruby can too. haha

Because repukes are such an authority on marriage. What a bunch of ignorant losers.

Lose the bush tax cuts for the rich should take care of most of the programs.

James Carville: Mitch McConnell Is Washington's 'Guardian of Gridlock'

WASHINGTON -- Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) is a "guardian of gridlock" and "the main cause of dysfunction in Washington," Democratic political consultant James Carville wrote in a fundraising email for McConnell's Democratic challenger, Kentucky Secretary of State Alison Lundergan Grimes (D).

The email, sent from the Grimes campaign to supporters on Wednesday, said Grimes is in "a strong position" to defeat McConnell this year:

How do I know? For starters, I’ve been to Kentucky. I’m impressed by the disciplined campaign she’s building and her bold vision for the future. She's traveled to every corner of the Commonwealth, listening to Kentuckians. She's bringing a fresh perspective, talking about issues like raising the minimum wage, standing up for Kentucky's working families, and the need to end the culture of dysfunction in Washington. We have a golden opportunity to replace the worst of Washington with a public servant who will be a champion for the middle class.
Carville's email cites recent polls showing Grimes and McConnell nearly tied.

McConnell criticized the Senate in a speech on Wednesday, saying the body "can be better than it is" with procedural issues and partisan tensions.

In October, Grimes released an ad criticizing McConnell's record in the Senate. In 2006, McConnell remarked that he has served as "a proud guardian of gridlock from time to time, when there was a point to it."
Jerry Lundergan, Grimes' father, is a close friend of former President Bill Clinton. Carville ran Clinton's 1992 campaign to win the Democratic nomination and the presidency, and served as an adviser for Hillary Clinton's 2008 presidential campaign.

When Grimes announced her candidacy for Senate in September, Carville told the Courier-Journal newspaper of Louisville that Lundergan had roped him into attending a fundraiser for his daughter.


McCONnell is the Senator of Gridlock. Time for turtleman to go...
