I am puzzled as to whether today's Republicans celebrate Thanksgiving. I mean Thanksgiving is supposedly the time when families reunite and thank their good fortunes for what they have accomplished in life, etc. What do Republicans celebrate? Do they celebrate denying food stamps to the working poor, children, seniors, and military veterans? Or do they celebrate denying unemployment insurance to the unemployed? I ask these questions because I haven't seen them do anything else for America. I guess I could include the constant GOP lying about Obamacare and immigration reform or jobs which they continue to do. So in the end, I guess my confusion arises from the policies they expound and deeds they do like, you know, reaching out to minority voters while passing voter suppression laws in the states. Or maybe, their unrelenting attack on women's rights to healthcare, abortions, fair wages, and respect.
Oh but I forgot one thing, they celebrate money! Yes, that is it. They celebrate the tons of money they receive from low-information voters (otherwise known as fools) who support their racist attacks on the President, their anti-gay rhetoric, and stalling on immigration reform. Of course these donors believe strongly that people using the social safety net are freeloaders and bums and of course the recipients are all minorities. Yes, that must be what Republicans celebrate on Thanksgiving: their success at earning money from heartless fools, racists, and Christian hypocrites, steeped in religious myths and content that ignores the realities of today's America. I am surprised that I did not understand this before when reviewing the history of the Republican Party the last thirty years. So please forgive my ignorance.
Today a poll came out that showed that Americans would vote for Mitt Romney over President Obama if the election were held today. This new poll validates what I was saying in my previous missive about "Opinion Polls", the people questioned are demonstrably stupid, ignorant, have no grasp on reality, and racist. It boggles the mind that a working class white with a sub par wage and education would actually believe that they would be better off with Romney as president. This shows the height of ignorance of the American Republican voter. They will support a man whose entire soul and fiber of existence is greed and exclusion of those not in his perceived social strata.
This fantasy support for a tax-dodging liar, draft dodger (Vietnam), religious fraud who would repeal the ACA, start a war with Iran, Syria, and North Korea. In addition, Romney would have continued the mass migration of American jobs and companies to China and elsewhere. Romney is his imitation of the criminal Ronald Reagan would have re-introduced the failed policy of supply side economics. Romney would have been against any type of meaningful immigration reform, lower corporate taxes, inheritance taxes, capital gains, personal taxes. So the declaration that voters now wish they would voted for Romney instead of Obama signifies the depths of stupidity, ignorance, and racism in America.
To ignore the facts of what Obama has achieved and Romney would not have done is a total embarrassment for America. To ignore the GOP obstruction and claim that Romney would have done more is totally absurd but then as has been stated many times in this space and by others, American voters just are not very bright.
Today's Quinnipiac poll shows President Obama's approval rating at 39%, his lowest. The poll is supposedly an accurate statistical sampling of American voters and therein lies the problem. Who are these American voters? The ones who think that the President can write, vote on, and pass bills? The Americans who believe that the President can spend monies at will on anything that he wishes? Or are they the Americans who believe that the President is from Kenya, a socialist, and a Muslim? Unfortunately, considering the gross stupidity of Americans as demonstrated by the types of fools they elect to the House and the Senate all of the above are true. Conducting a poll with Americans is like asking a child if he wants some more candy or would he like a lollipop instead. Americans have demonstrated ignorance in almost every facet of life.
They don't understand capitalism as demonstrated by their devotion to buying new cellphones every six months just to send text messages and pictures to their friends, Facebook, and Twitter. For what? And then complain about their supposed lack of privacy, Really! Or consider the fact that 40% or more of Americans never vote but constantly complain about the dysfunctional government and how they hate the clown that they did not vote for represents (or not represents) them in the House and/or Senate.
The bottom line is that I don't put much stock in polls because the people being questioned can't be taken seriously. The purpose of a poll is to statistically assess the true opinions of the people and assumes that the people being polled are knowledgeable about issues important to the country. But in a society of low-information voters and people who actually believe "reality shows" are real, I just can't take their opinions seriously.
New Jersey were successfully suckered by the fraud, the pig Governor Chris Christie, into reelecting him so that he can run for president. Did you not do your due diligence and realize that the clown has done nothing but follow the Koch Brothers orders? Do you not realize that this clown has cost you thousands of jobs, lowered taxes for the rich and raised them for the working class, bankrupt your schools, disrespects women, gays, and minorities in general? Do even pay attention to real news about how this pig has basically stolen the Sandy Relief funds and is doling them out to his cronies? You never noticed the Sandy victims still living in their cars, damaged homes, or if lucky small hotels?
No, you saw none of the above. All you saw was a photo-opt gleefully displayed by the worthless main-stream-media showing Christie shaking Obama's hand and walking through the ruins of Sandy. You gleeful took this photo-opt as a justification for reelecting one of the worst governors in the history of NJ. You totally rejected voting for an attractive Democratic alternative and competent woman in Barbara Bono. Bono spelled out all the reasons why voters should not reelect the Pig Governor but you ignored all of that because you were impressed by a fucking photo and the promise of help in a time of need; and all you got was the shaft.
Well, congratulations NJ voters and supporters of the Pig Governor. You have shown that you learned nothing the first term and you can now join the ranks of California who learned the hard way after electing the idiot the Terminator twice. Yes, NJ voters you have put yourselves in a vulnerable position for the next four years until this fraud declares for the presidency; but until then I fear you will be feel very strange walking around with a fictional dick up your asses!
