Rand Paul Says Earrings and Tattoos Will Save Texas for GOP
Rand Paul took a break from hounding Bill Clinton and said on Saturday that if the Republican Party does not change, it could lose the Lone Star State:“Texas will be a Democratic state within 10 years if you don’t change.” This repeats a message he gave to Republicans in Detroit a few days ago, a city where 97 percent of voters went for Obama in 2012.
Speaking in Houston, Paul said,
"That doesn’t mean we give up on what we believe in, but it means we have to be a more welcoming party. We have to welcome people of all races. We need to welcome people of all classes – business class, working class."
Don’t get excited. Paul is clearly talking about cosmetic changes, not substantive changes to Republican ideology and platform. Remember, this is the party that thinks if they get better looking candidates who smile more, voters will elect them no matter what they say or do.
In fact, if you think about it, what Paul is suggesting is impossible.
People aren’t voting Democrat because Republicans are less aesthetically pleasing. They are voting Democrat because of what Republicans are saying, and Republicans can’t say things people like without giving up what they believe in, unless they want to come across sounding like Romney, and you know how well that worked out.
That Paul is thinking more in terms of appearances than substance, however, is clear:“We need to have people with ties and without ties, with tattoos and without tattoos; with earrings, without earrings. We need a more diverse party. We need a party that looks like America.” Again, this mirrors what he told Detroit Republicans:“We need to be a more diverse party if we’re ever going to win again. We need people with tattoos, ponytails and earrings.”
Notice what he did not say: nothing about gays and lesbians. Nothing about Muslims or atheists. Nothing about the impoverished and out of work to whom his party has denied unemployment benefits and jobs.
Looks. It’s all about looks. Paul may be banking on that old adage that says perception is reality, but our perceptions depend on more than a single sense. We can hear as well as see, and even where vision is concerned, we can see Republican actions do not match their words. They attack Obama over jobs while declining to create a single job in five years. And how many votes have we had against Obamacare? It’s gotten so bad that even Obama is beating Bill O’Reilly over the head with it on national TV. As Rmuse wrote here yesterday, the GOP not only does not do anything, it does not plan to do anything.
And Paul thinks earrings and tattoos will help? Really? Paul said on Saturday,“People who are Hispanic or Latino, they have to believe that we want them in our party, so it is an attitude thing as much as it is policy.”
That is exactly what the GOP needs because as Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) said back in 2012,“We’re not generating enough angry white guys to stay in business for the long term.”
The Republican Party is now reaping the results of the hatred it has been sowing since Barack Obama announced he was running for president. It is significant that Graham talked about “generating” angry white guys because that is exactly what the GOP, with the help of Fox News, has been doing since 2008. And a party that denigrates minorities and women and anyone who is not a fundamentalist Christian is asking for trouble. And asking to lose Texas.
The GOP is making voters but it is making voters for Wendy Davis. Earrings and tattoos are not the answer. It is not the ties that make Republicans so reprehensible to the majority of the American people, but the people who are wearing those ties, and that is a point no Republican alive – at least those not jumping the party – seem willing – or able – to understand.

It Is Absurd To Have Republicans In Congress Who Intend to Do Absolutely Nothing
The overriding aspect of conservatism is its adherents’ resistance to change, and since Americans first elected Barack Obama as President, Republicans began their obstructionist ways and since then have dug in their heels to oppose anything the President proposed and spent the past three years taking from the American people. In fact, over the past five years Republicans have proposed absolutely nothing to help the people and worked tirelessly to look for new ways and excuses to take more as well as keep government stagnating in its current state. There were three items in the news this past week that expose the Republican agenda has not changed despite their deplorable approval ratings that should remind Americans that Republicans hate America and its people as much as they hate the African American President. Subsequently, because there is another scheduled 10 days off for Congress, Republicans will spend February doing what they have done for five years; absolutely nothing.
It is getting absurd to have Republicans serving in Congress when they have no intention of doing the work the people sent them to Washington to do. They have already squandered a month attacking women’s right to choose and opposing extending unemployment benefits they strongly implied they would address at the beginning of the year, but because it is part of the President’s economic recovery plan, it is not going to happen. What is offensive to the American people is that Republicans claim Americans are lazy sloths, and yet they have accomplished next to nothing and are taking their second “recess” to plot more obstruction on issues the American people support like raising the minimum wage, extending unemployment benefits, or passing jobs bills the President all but begged Republicans to address. Nothing has changed for Republicans and although it is part and parcel of being a conservative, they continue to expose their hatred toward the nation and its people for twice electing an African American who is working every day for the people as leader of the Executive Branch.

How Radical has the Republican Party Become? One State Perfectly Sums Up the Insanity
I’ve talked with several moderate Republicans who shockingly don’t disagree with me when I say the tea party is extremely dangerous. They can’t stand what it’s done to the Republican party, and they’re genuinely terrified that I’m right in my assessment that it will eventually destroy the GOP.
While there are seemingly countless examples showcasing just how asinine tea party ideologies are and how they’ve radicalized the GOP, I felt a more simplistic example would be better to showcase just what I mean.
Then as I read through an article detailing how the tea party is increasing its efforts to “primary” Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell in Kentucky, it hit me – Kentucky is a great example of how far the tea party is pushing the GOP.
In 2010, Kentucky elected Rand Paul to the United States Senate. A man who had absolutely zero political experience (outside of riding his father’s coattails) prior to his election. Essentially, the people of Kentucky elected a man because of how radically “anti-government” his father was known to be.
A few years ago, there’s no way Rand Paul gets elected to anything in Congress above possibly a no-name Congressional district like his father was. Yet, thanks to the tea party movement, he’s now a United States Senator.
Then there’s Mitch McConnell. The man who flat-out said,“Our top political priority over the next two years should be to deny President Obama a second term in office.”
You can watch him say it here:
This is also the Senate Minority Leader who’s presided over record-setting obstruction in the United States Senate. This Senate has broken records for the frequency at which the filibuster has been used to block legislation.
So McConnell has clearly not been someone liberals would embrace and call “a moderate Republican.” In fact, I’ve never talked with a liberal who can stand him.
Yet even with his level of obstruction and blatant attempts at sabotage of anything and everything President Obama wants, apparently he’s still not radical enough for the tea party.
They’re gathering momentum to get behind Kentucky businessman Matt Bevin to oust McConnell so he won’t be the GOP candidate during the general election.
It doesn’t help that McConnell is actually trailing in polls right now to his Democratic challenger, Alison Grimes. Still, there has been talk that the tea party was targeting McConnell long before Grimes began leading him in polls.
Ronald Reagan wouldn’t be conservative enough for the tea party. That’s not an opinion, that’s just a fact.
This is a trend you’re seeing more and more conservatives embrace. The idea that they need more conservative candidates, not less, to defeat Democrats in national elections. No, seriously, that’s what many far-right leaning conservatives believe. The reason why they lost in 2012 in their delusional minds was because Mitt Romney wasn’t conservative enough.
Never mind the fact that when only Republicans had a choice, they chose Romney – that sort of reality has no place in the “logic” of the tea party voter. Or let’s ignore the fact that poll after poll shows Americans getting more liberal, not less. These people really believe that one of their biggest shortcomings as a party is the fact that they need more people like Ted Cruz and Rand Paul.
Terrifying, isn’t it?
But that’s what the tea party is trying to have happen. They want to keep pushing the GOP further and further to the right, believing that somehow that’s what Americans want. Despite reality, stats, polls and just about every other piece of evidence out there showing the majority of Americans are getting more liberal.
I guess that’s what happens when you bet on fiction in a non-fiction world.

A proposed statewide smoking ban at workplaces and in public buildings won bipartisan backing Thursday while breezing through a House committee in a state with historic ties to the tobacco industry.

Supporters said the measure would protect nonsmokers from the dangers of secondhand smoke.

"We're saving lives," Democratic Rep. Susan Westrom of Lexington, the bill's lead sponsor, said afterward. "We're allowing people to have clean air that's breathable."

The measure was approved by the House Health and Welfare Committee on a 10-3 vote.

Opponents included Republican Rep. Tim Moore, who said the bill encroaches on the use of a legal product.

"This is too far-reaching and impacts people's liberty and freedom," he said.

Westrom sponsored similar proposals in recent sessions, but supporters couldn't muster enough support.

She made her latest pitch Thursday alongside Republican Sen. Julie Denton of Louisville, who is leading the push in her chamber for the statewide ban. There's a patchwork of local smoking bans in Kentucky.

Denton acknowledged the challenge of passing sweeping anti-smoking restrictions in a state that typically posts some of the nation's highest smoking rates.

"I know that it's going to take some 'profiles in courage' to get some people to vote on this bill because it may not be popular to smokers back home," Denton said in a Senate speech Wednesday.

Denton acknowledged Thursday that the individual-choice argument will be the toughest obstacle for smoking ban supporters to overcome.

"Your personal choice ends when it infringes upon my health," she told reporters.

House Health and Welfare Committee Chairman Tom Burch said nonsmokers are the clear majority of society, and they shouldn't be put at risk because of an unhealthy habit by others.

"Why should 75 percent of the people suffer because 25 percent of the people want to kill themselves?" the Louisville Democrat asked.

The bill would prohibit smoking in enclosed public places and workplaces. It would apply to bars and restaurants, as well as manufacturing facilities, professional offices and most other workplaces.

Smokers who light up in prohibited places would face fines of up to $100 for a first offense and $250 for subsequent violations.

Business owners failing to comply with the ban would be fined up to $250 the first time and up to $500 for a second violation occurring within a year of the first violation. Their fine would rise to as much as $2,500 for each additional violation in the same year as the first offense.

Kentucky remains the nation's top producer of burley tobacco, an ingredient in many cigarettes, though production has dropped sharply in the past decade.

Gov. Steve Beshear made a pitch for the proposed statewide ban in his State of the Commonwealth speech last month. He laid out a goal of cutting Kentucky's smoking rate by 10 percent by 2018.

"Tobacco use is the single-biggest factor negatively impacting our health," he said in the speech.

I see what your saying. I have had the same provider for years and it spins me to Campbellsville, Elizabethtown, Brandenburg, Cecilia and I live in none of those cities. I am closer to Elizabethtown and Cecilia than Campbellsville or Brandenburg.

i am also doing the citizen allowances this year

you should have your paycheque through the post by sept 2014

i want every american born citizen to receive a paycheque of at least:

$250,000 adult

$150,000 child (under 18 years of age)

these monies will not affect your regular pay packet should their be one or pension plan whatever it maybe.

what i propose is 4 quarterly payments in american dollars to be paid to you wherever convenient to you

to be eligible you have to keep your american citizenship in good health and that means you require a yearly stamp to be added (with state office frank mark) to citizen license.

keeping your citizenship healthily may mean staying out of piston, or remaining of sound mind and body.

stamps will be rewarded on broad yearly merits with yearly health check-up at your state health service.
