Why are conservatives for corporate welfare, but against a safety net for american citizens?

Corporate welfare costs us FAR more, and benefits a very small number of americans.

What good reason to continue 100 year old fossil fuel subsidies?
Why continue to subsidize walmart at the cost of billions per year?

Should the Fox propaganda network be allowed to exist?

Fox fake news convinces mentally impaired, but well-meaning conservatives to vote against themselves and the country – based entirely on lies.

Is that good for the country? Clearly no.

An example – (D)’s reduce the deficit. Its what they do.
(R)’s grow the deficit. Its what they do.

But fox fake news has convinced their mentally impaired audience to blame (D)’s for the deficit that republicans built.

Is that good for America?

Fox Propaganda Network should be SHUT DOWN, for the good of the country.

Do these describe today’s Republicans?

1. Powerful and continuing expressions of nationalism

2. Disdain for the importance of human rights

3. Identification of enemies/scapegoats as a unifying cause

4. The supremacy of the military/avid militarism

5. Rampant sexism

6. A controlled mass media

7. Obsession with national security

8. Religion and ruling elite tied together

9. Power of corporations protected

10. Power of labor suppressed or eliminated

11. Disdain and suppression of intellectuals and the arts

12. Obsession with crime and punishment

13. Rampant cronyism and corruption

14. Fraudulent elections


Republican policy vs Democratic Policy

Republican Policy:
– vote to repeal obamacare, which cost $50 million.
– government shutdown, which cost $24 billion.
– wanted to end obamacare, which would add $110 billion to the deficit.
– wanted to cut funding for obamacare, which by itself would add to the deficit.
– bush tax cuts, which have cost more than 3 trillion through 2008.
– bush medicare expansion, whose cost was added directly to the deficit.
– the unfunded bush wars, also straight to the deficit.
– the sequester, which has cost hundreds of thousands of jobs.
– public sector job cuts – hundreds of thousands more unemployed.

Democratic Policy:
– obamacare, lowers the deficit by $100 billion over 10 years and gives rules to big insurance.
– financial reform, giving rules to dishonest bankers
– partial repeal of the unfunded bush tax cuts, which reduced the deficit by $600 billion.
– ending the F-22 program saves us billions.
– american jobs act, which was projected by economists to create 1-2 million jobs, but blocked by republicans
– infrastructure repair spending, blocked by republicans
– small business lending bill, which was blocked by republicans.
– veteran’s jobs bill, also blocked by republicans

Obama Derangement Syndrome

There are a large number of idiot conservatives inundated with right wing lies that have ODS.

From this page

If you believe the following, you are probably suffering from Obama Derangement Syndrome (ODS):

If Obama said it, it’s a lie. When it’s proven to be the truth, he got lucky – because it’s just a crazy coincidence that his lie turned out to be the truth after all. If he knew it was the truth, he would never have said it in the first place.

If Obama makes a speech about a specific issue, he’s just spewing pretty words. If Obama doesn’t speak on a specific issue, he’s trying to hide something. Or he should have spoken about something else entirely, because when he gets specific about one issue, that means he’s ignoring all of the really important issues he should be speaking about – those issues being whatever it was he didn’t mention.

If Obama did it, it must have been the wrong thing to do. When it turns out to have been the right thing to do, then Obama never did it. And if he did do it, he did it the wrong way. It was too little, too late – or it was too much, too soon. It went too far – while, at the same time, it didn’t go far enough. And even if it turns out to have been right, it’s still wrong.

If Obama proposed it, it can’t possibly work. When it does work, it was somebody else’s idea all along, an idea he blatantly stole just to make himself look good. That’s because he knew it would work all along – even though it can’t possibly work.

If Obama stands firm, he is being stubborn. If he seeks compromise, he is caving. Obama should lead while following. He should be more hands-on while staying out of it completely. Why can’t he take the reins and do what must be done? Why can’t he mind his own goddamned business?

If Obama acts, he shouldn’t have. If he doesn’t act, he should have. If he said he was going to act, he was lying. If he repeatedly said he was going to do something and then actually does it, he only did it because a bunch of keyboard warriors held his feet to the fire, and forced him to do it. All credit for anything and everything belongs to them.

If a survey/poll shows that the vast majority of Democrats are pleased with Obama’s performance in office, it is skewed, biased, and not to be relied on. If a respected liberal icon speaks favorably about Obama’s actions, someone got to them and forced them to say it. If a long-reviled GOPer slams Obama – well, even a broken clock is right twice a day.

If Obama achieves something, it is a trivial accomplishment of no consequence. If he fails to achieve something, the consequences are dire – in fact, it probably means the end of civilization as we know it.

If Obama appoints someone to any position, it is the wrong choice. He always should have picked the other guy – you know, the one everybody really wanted – the one who, if Obama had picked him, would have been declared the worst guy for the position the minute his appointment was announced.

If Obama stands up for gay/lesbian rights, he is pandering. If he initiates programs that help the poor and the homeless, he is pandering. If he offers proposals that will strengthen the middle class, he is pandering. And the ACA? Just a blatant attempt to pander to the millions of people who need affordable healthcare, preexisting conditions notwithstanding, and those who actually might die without it. Apparently, the panderer-in-chief has no shame.

If Obama really cared about democracy, he would act more like a dictator. If he knew anything about diplomacy, he would tell all foreign leaders who run their countries in ways he doesn’t approve of to go fuck themselves. If he was really concerned about national security, he would dismantle the military. And if he truly cherished the privacy of all Americans, he would simply shut down the NSA – along with Facebook and all other social media that invite the sharing of personal information, because you can’t be too careful with this shit.

To hear those with ODS tell the tale, Obama is too stupid to know that the Republicans are not on his side, too dumb to know he’s in over his head, and way too idiotic to govern a nation. The fact that, under his guidance, the economy has improved, job numbers are up, and the deficit is being reduced at an amazing pace is just – you guessed it! – “dumb luck.” Makes one wonder how such a dumbass was somehow smart enough to get elected – twice.

The propaganda tale of private lynch

The terrible story of Private Jessica Lynch shocked the United States: she walked into an ambush and fought like a lioness. She was hurt and captured by the Iraqis who tortured and raped her but the Special Forces freed her and took her back to the United States where she was acclaimed as a heroine. Presented during a press conference at the Central Command with the support of an allegedly “real” video, this story – completely made up by a communication office, the Rendon Group – was later developed in distorted articles published by the New York Times and the Washington Post: a brainwashing operation to make a neo-colonial expedition look like a glorious feat.
