A former GOP with a lick of sense

go figure, another one who makes some sense.
Former, though.

“Does anyone not believe what’s happened here the last couple weeks in the market was not a complete, direct result of the lack of confidence that came out of that folly, that embarrassment?”

(referring to the debt ceiling crisis ginned up by republicans trying to force the middle class to pay for the republican wars and tax cuts for the wealthy.

25 Corporations Paid More To Their CEO Last Year Than They Paid In Taxes

While republicans continue to their war on reality, insisting that the corporate tax rate is too onerous despite all evidence to the contrary, including the latest report from ThinkProgress

Of last year’s 100 highest-paid corporate chief executives in the United States, 25 took home more in CEO pay than their company paid in 2010 federal income taxes.

If republicans wanted to help small business – that’s different.
I’d support that.

But republicans support big business when big business has everything.
Fuck republicans.

Conservatives in general are braindead if they vote republican.,

Conservative Propaganda – personalliberty.com

No doubt this is another newsmax site.

Check out their poll questions.

1. More than three years after the $700 billion dollar stimulus, unemployment and foreclosures are still at record highs. Is President Barack Obama most to blame for the lack of economic recovery?

The highlighted portion is false.
Not True.

3. President Obama’s proposed 2011 budget spends $3.73 trillion on infrastructure, high speed rail projects and other stimulus programs. Do you feel this will stimulate the economy and get American’s back to work?

The highlighted portion is LAUGHABLY false.
The ENTIRE BUDGET is 3.7 trillion.

After completing their entirely fake “survey”, you are immediately forwarded to a website with the famous scam layout (single very long page).

Republicans Against Science – Paul Krugman

From Nobel winning economist, Paul Krugman:

Mr. Perry, the governor of Texas, recently made headlines by dismissing evolution as “just a theory,” one that has “got some gaps in it” — an observation that will come as news to the vast majority of biologists.

Mr. Perry and those who think like him know what they want to believe, and their response to anyone who contradicts them is to start a witch hunt.

odds are that one of these years the world’s greatest nation will find itself ruled by a party that is aggressively anti-science, indeed anti-knowledge

Also check out the book, “the republican war on science” – if you need more examples.

Sensationalist Conservatives and their fiction

conservative hillbilly fact #1

Al gore said he created the internet. Hur! Al Gore’s so dumb!

reality ignored by conservative hillbillies:
“Actually, the vice president never claimed to have done so — but he did help the Net along. Some people would rather forget that.”

conservative hillbilly fact #2

Pelosi said We have to pass health reform before we know what’s in it! She didn’t even read the bill, Har!

reality ignored by conservative retards:
This out of context quote was Pelosi deriding the huge amount of stupidity and lies surrounding the health care debate – such as the 2010 lie of the year, “death panels”.

Reminding republicans about reality

Fact: when president Obama took office we were losing more than 700,000 jobs per month.
Fact: NOTHING, barring some impossible miracle could have turned that around immediately, which means that ANY president would have had the same unemployment record – except republicans would have let the AUTO INDUSTRY DIE – there goes MILLIONS of jobs. And republicans would not have passed the stimulus – another 3 million jobs. With a republican president instead of President Obama, we’d have 14% unemployment. Its simple math.
FACT: EVERY SINGLE TIME republicans whine about jobs, they are actually whining about the recession that started december 2007 – more than a year before president Obama took office.
FACT: republicans prevented every other economic measure offered by the democratic house of representatives under Nancy Pelosi after the stimulus was passed.
FACT: republicans were elected by hillbillies and medicated old folks that think fox is news.
FACT: NOTHING that republicans have proposed in a year since they were elected would positively affect our jobs situation.

In short, if your dumb conservative ass is whining about the president and the economy, you’re fucking stupid.
