You just knew it was coming in Indiana, with their recently elected 49% Governor Mike Pence, for them to join the rest of the Midwest states miss-governed by the GOP in exercising their option on promoting hatred and discrimination. Like Kansas' idiot Brownback who has bankrupt the state, or Michigan's fraud Kasich who robbed Detroit, or Wisconsin's Walker whose union-busting and corruption has reached new highs, you just knew something was up in Indiana.
When the "dumber-than-dog-shit" voters elected a former talk radio host to Congress where he distinguished himself by his mediocrity and then elevated him to the governorship, it was only a matter of time before he supported legislation(created with the help of ALEC and the fools in his party) that would embarrass the state and the country because that is what Republicans do, y'all. Now that they have passed their so-called religious freedom act which legalizes discrimination against gays, the coward Pence is trying to justify the law as harmless to gays and simply protecting everyone's constitutional rights on religious practice. Of course that is a lie.
Pence has done such a masterful job of pissing off the business and sports communities that his repugnant colleagues are offering to rewrite the law to protect gays. This is only coming about because the idiots did not care that they were legalizing discrimination in the first place and were catering to the hatred, homophobia, and racism which has always laid beneath the surface in a state which was home to the largest Ku Klux Klan membership outside the South and the racist John Birch Society supported by the Koch Brothers.
So, this entire episode in hate-governing by another mediocre-at-best politician is par for the course. I mean you don't really believe a Republican governor is going to govern for the benefit of all in his/her state do you?
Now that Sen. Ted Cruz has entered the 2016 Presidential race we will have eight, count them, eight unqualified individuals to listen to for the next 12 to 14 months talk about their vision for America. It will really be embarrassing for the country as foreigners will be laughing as these racist buffoons try to con intelligent people into voting for a fool while at the same time assuring their racist, low information, dumber-than-dog-shit base that they will enhance their freedom and get the government off their backs.
This group of frauds (Cruz, Santorium, Huckabee, Bush, Carson, etc) will provide every illogical reason why people should not want to raise the minimum wage, why they should go without Obamacare, why Social Security should be handed off to the thieves of Wall Street, why we need to invade Iran, and a whole host of other bullshit. All of this, of course, is just a false front for their real agenda of bowing down and getting on their knees before the special interest they truly serve.
But they know that they can get away with this charade because their voters are ignorant and the mass media in America is owned by the same billionaire fascists these candidates serve.
Now with the Israeli election over and the fear-absorbed, racists, land -grabbers in Israel have reelected their racist savior, Bibi, it is time to look at the reality of America's great Middle East ally. Israel, founded in 1947 by stealing the Palestinians land through the use of terrorism and all forms of racial oppression of the indigenous people of Palestine, now claims it is the rightful owner of all in the area.
Just like the white South Africans did after the thieving colonizers, the British, left. They setup the racist apartheid system which stole people's land and property, denied people free movement, and raped the country of resources; just like the Israelis are doing to the Palestinians.
Well, as you know the US supported South Africa and it obviously supports Israel. Maybe it is because all three have so much in common from a historical perspective: their "founding", their treatment of minorities, and the penchant for inequality.
I hope all the "dumber-than-dog-shit voters and non-voters" are paying some attention as to what their great saviors from the black man in the White House planning them. The GOP has put forth a budget that reduces Medicare and Medicaid, cuts food stamps, kills the ACA, eliminates Social Security numbers from those terrible immigrants, and advocated for war against Iran.
I probably left out a few items but that should be enough to get most people's attention about what the facist, racist party of the rich has done so far. While they pledge to move America forward there is no doubt this group of buffoons don't know how to govern and are best at ripping off the taxpayer like Rep Schott of Illinois who just resigned.
So for all the GOP voters, I hope this makes you feel proud as your poorer GOP voters lose their medical care, food stamps, and seniors' Medicare/Medicaid. Congratulations you have earned all the pain you deserve.
US Attorney General Eric Holder released his report on Ferguson, Mo. today which described what black people have been saying for decades about racist police forces and municipalities. Ferguson has been using the black population as a revenue generator for the city. By imposing fines and fees following bogus arrests, Ferguson operated like a plantation state where the slaves did the labor and received all the punishment for violating arbitrary rules imposed by the overseers.
Arresting black people while walking down the street, sitting in their cars, or driving to work did not matter to the systemic racism being enforced by the Ferguson Police Department. The FPD sanctioned the harassment lead by their police chief and with the support of the judges and the mayor. The government of Ferguson, Mo. is guilty of systemic racism and discrimination and no one in power in that city has a right to rule, remedy, or propose solutions to the problem.
Comments to think about.
