TODAY’S REPUBLICANS ARE AMERICA’S ENEMY WITHIN

Republicans ARE practicing seditious DEMAGOGUERY and anti-democracy OBSTRUCTIONISM intended to destabilize our economy for purposes of political exploitation.

Republicans AREN’T making a sincere effort to STOP the bleeding THEIR incompetent leadership and failed policies created. Instead, they’re using inflammatory lies and accusations as a smokescreen to conceal their subversive agenda, which is to cause President Obama and America to fail so they can blame Democrats for the consequences of THEIR calamitous mismanagement.

Republicans ARE preposterously professing that THEIR disgraceful political WHORING had no thing to do with the banking, real estate, stock market and employment catastrophes that resulted.

Republicans ARE trying to hamstring “government” to prevent Democrats from repairing the damage caused during a Republican presidency that was irresponsibly enabled by Republican Senators and Representatives.

Republicans ARE offering ridiculous arguments meant solely to disrupt and prevent government “effectiveness”. They’d rather divide America and create political gridlock than endure the political consequences of “effective” governance.

Republicans AREN’T the LOYAL OPPOSITION; they ARE the ENEMY WITHIN whose mercenary priorities have eroded their moral and ethical standards to the point that duplicity and betrayal have become their preferred modus operandi.

It’s one thing to advocate their conservative beliefs; it’s another thing entirely to willfully sabotage America’s government because a successful Democratic presidency would not be vulnerable to the greed, fears and hatreds that have produced and sustained the despicable Republican anti-government corporatism and anti-Christian faux theocracies that are poisoning and crippling American society.

AP nixes 'homophobia', and other '-phobia' words, 'ethnic cleansing'

advicefromyoungjournalists:

Short version: Phobia is a psychological disorder. Anti-gay, Anti-Mulsim, etc. will be used in its place.

“Ethnic cleansing” is a euphemism. Specifically state what happened. i.e. “The Holocaust is an example of ethnically-motivated genocide.”

(Side note: Per usual, don’t read the comments. Most of them didn’t actually read past the headline and the word “Orwellian” is used injudiciously.)

This pic of Mitt Romney looking disheveled pumping his own gas just 2 weeks after the election is magical. It’s like ice cream for my eyes. I’m not saying someone should make a T-shirt out of it, but I would buy it immediately. And wear with my 3 Wolf Moon T-Shirt for extra powers.

Follow the money from big Dem donors to super PACs to races

Big money won big on Election Day. That is, big money supporting Democrats.
In this year’s campaign, many wealthy individuals and groups with large campaign coffers were involved — directly with contributions to candidates or indirectly through outside spending. Sunlight decided to zero in on five mega-donors who gave the most to super PACs backing liberal candidates.

Check out the House and Presidential races.

Those of us who have been to the hearings and briefings and markups hear time and time again from our colleagues that `this costs too much money and we have to make cuts.’ Well our evil-doing, American citizen hating administration requested a lot more money than we provided. They requested for worldwide security $440 million more than you guys wanted to provide. A quarter of a billion dollars in security upgrades that you refused to make in this Committee. And then you have the audacity to come here and say ‘why wasn’t the protection of these people provided for?’ And the answer is because you damn didn’t provide it!

Oh right, Solyndra and stuff. Guess we should just give up then. Certainly we should cut all funding for alternative energy. [sarc]

I think honest debate, fresh thinking, leadership in the Republican party and the leadership in the conservative movement has to pull back, let people float new ideas. Let’s have a serious debate. Don’t scream and yell over what one person says. You know what? It won’t kill the country if Republicans raise taxes a little bit on millionaires. It really won’t, I don’t think. I don’t really understand why Republicans don’t take Obama’s offer to freeze taxes for everyone below $250,000. Make it $500,000, make it a million. Really? The Republican party is gonna fall on its sword to defend a bunch of millionaires, half of whom voted Democratic, and half of whom live in Hollywood and are hostile to Republicans?
