Democrats, just like herding cats!

It is so amazing to watch politics play out now everyday. Just when you think that they could not be any more corruptible, politicians take the next step into the Valley of greed to put the country on a road map straight  into  the local quicksand pit.
The Democrats, with majorities in both the Senate, and Congress and the White House are caught in the dilemma of taking a long time of doing nothing again, and getting nothing accomplished for the American citizens that voted them into office.
You have to consider that both Parties are teams, and each team wants to win, to get their platform voted in on, but when you see that the Democrats are so splintered that they really are not a true team after all. The Democrats are like  many small teams disguised as one big team. You got the environmental, the pro-choice, clean energy, health reform, stop both wars, middle class reform, trade reform, immigration reform, AFL-CIO, save the whales, save the planet, save the icebergs, save the sand, save the air, save your breathe, and then save the Gays.
 Wow, now that is allot to focus on.
Whereas the Republican platform is simply Greed at any cost, justified with racism, intolerance, bigotry, fear and hate in the name of a unemployed Jewish, Rabbi, rebel, mortal, never a convert,  modern fictional Christian God, Our father, the long haired, unshaven, Hippie looking dude in a toga robe who lives in the clouds by himself, who makes decisions for trillions, and trillions and trillions of things on Earth alone each and every nano-second. This guy must have some very pent up sexual repression going on? Living on a cloud by yourself for eternity. How does he release this sexual tension? Like mortal men? YIKES!!!
So back to the feebleness of the Democrats today. With the Democratic Party splintered into so many different directions how are they ever going to come together to get anything accomplished? It looks like they are not going to really accomplish much after all.
It is all for show.
Make it look like you are doing something when your not, and then take credit for doing it!
I can hear it now. The Democratic leadership saying " We tried our best, but our best was just not good enough to win", even though we outnumbered the opposing side, and should have been able to ramrod anything we want to do down their conservative, Klansman's throats, we lost. We even just wanted a tie, but our emotions got the better of us and we did not want to hurt the Republicans feelings, so instead we let them do whatever they wanted!
Here we are today, Health care reform? War in Afghanistan? Wall ST. and Banks too big to fail? Immigration? Trade? Middle Class? Energy? Criminal punishment for the Bush regime? Corruption in Washington?
How much have the Democrats accomplished so far?  Zilch!
The President's capital is now a deficit, the Democratic power since January 21, 2009 has all been squandered, and there are no true lasting significant victories to justify any celebrating.
Health care looks like it too will go down in defeat.
The President is talking about sending more troops to Afghanistan, just what the Republicans want!
What about the people who voted President Obama into office, what do we get?
More broken promises.
Wow, what the hell happened?

The President has no Bite!

Eight months into his Presidency, President Obama has made many a great speech. He can articulate exactly what he thinks and feels to a large crowd very successfully with passion and integrity. The only problem is that he is too nice a person for the job. Jimmy Carter was no different. A man of the people with a honest heart, yet very weak otherwise. We are seeing this play out again and again now, the President is back tracking on every issue, every piece of legislation just to make the other side feel good, and in doing so has completely wiped out any strength he has, or had in Congress. The President looks very weak and limp right now, and on every issue more empty speeches and no results produce failed policies.
He was voted into office from the biggest issue of the time, the two wars we have got going now in Iraq and Afghanistan and people want out of both. Only now he is wanting to send more troops to Afghanistan? This is looking just like L.B.J. after J. F. Kennedy died in the early 1960's. L.B.J. wanted to appear to be a strong Democratic President and actually pushed ahead with the war effort by putting 500,000 more troops in Vietnam, only to get 58,000 of them killed in the process, along with 3 Million Vietnamese civilians and ended up being a complete waste of time, effort, money and lives. I know well because I have been to Vietnam, and my wife lived through the entire ordeal. It was a tragedy that did not have to happen, but was forced on the USA because of greed, just like we see now. The Banking cartels, the Military Industrial complex, the Halliburton type companies, they all make 100's of Billions in war and they do not want change, they want things to stay as they are right now. Bogged down, stagnant is good for them because the money keeps pouring in from Government, while the corruptible Politicians stuff cash into their own pockets and look the other way.
Health care reform, Finance reform, war reform, immigration reform, trade reform, all  looks like not much will happen, and then in no time at all it will be election time 2012 again and we the citizens are faced with the same predicament? What's the use to vote if it means so little in the end.
Nothing short of a real revolution looks like it will have any impact on America. We are being held hostage by the politicians, they make the laws, all of them. Nothing can be done without a law being introduced and voted on, and then being put into action. Every crisis at hand right now is the result of a Politician creating a law to allow it to happen. There are no accidents ever. It is all manufactured to produce the desired results, which is to bleed the American  consumer dry of their assets, and the same goes  on World wide, for the benefit of the rich as well.
President Obama was going to lead us to the promised land? It kind of feels more like we are on our own to figure out what to do next.
The enemy is not an invisable terrorist here or in a far off land somewhere. The enemy is 100 Senators, and 435 Congressmen and women who want to get rich and powerful from their elected jobs inWashington!
This is treason.

Racism in America 2009

Everybody knows that there is racism everywhere you go, in every Country. No Country gets to escape this badge of self degradation from Humanity. It just exists because we are different, we look different, we speak different, we eat different, our cultures are inherently different. So it should really be of no surprise that racism exists everywhere, and it does.
Here today in America the racism issue has surfaced like never before because of one thing, America for the first time has an African American President.
The frightened Confederate Euro-White transplanted, religious ignorant Christians see that their numbers are dwindling and that the dark skinned people have overtaken them, and to them it is a threat to their sense of survival, because it is only going to get worse for them, and they know  Whites will be a minority in the future, and the power of election is ruled by numbers.
That means Black Presidents, Hispanic Presidents, Asian Presidents, Arab Presidents for heavens sake!
Oh my gosh the sky is falling Chicken Little, run for your life, because everyone who is not White must be a Communist by that definition alone - color.
Except of course for a few token republican people of color like Asian Michelle Malkin, and African American, Michael Steele, Chairman  of the RNC - I guess that they did not get the memo about the upcoming cross burnings in Geogia with Govenor Sanford, and Joe (the Brown noser) Wilson ?
And to think that Sanford cheated on his wife and family to be with a dark skinned women of South America!
Heaven forbid.
When I see the birthers, the tea baggers, the hate signs, the degraded posters of President Obama I find it stunning that these same bigots, racist and intolerants hide behind fictional Christian religion as though Jesus Christ was ever a bigot, a racist, and intolerant?
What little there is even known of this person Jesus, if he ever even existed at all is that he was color blind, very tolerant, unemployed, long haired, long bearded, Jewish, Rabbi, Philosopher wandering bum, who mumbled to the sky about his father floating on a cloud!
A true rebel and all around pain in the ass for the Romans and the Jewish elite.
The modern far right religious republican is white, older than 30, ignorant, believes the Earth is 7,000 years old, that Dinosaurs lived with Humans, that the Earth is flat, that the Sun revolves around the Earth, that Adam and Eve started the Human race, (Don't tell anyone that both of these folks were actually Black skinned!) that the Ten Commandments were written by  the floating guy in the clouds, that they are  frightened, cannot adjust to change well, wants to believe that Santa Clause and the Easter bunny are real, that Christmas trees were meant to end up in the garbage can after two weeks of use, that they have a right to waste  anything because they are Americans, that they have a right to invade other countries if it is good for them no matter what the cost, that wars are no different than football games to be won, and then head to the pizza parlor for beer and pizza afterwards.
These are the same White people, and their ancestors  that massacred the Native American Indian almost to the point of extinction, but have completely forgotten, that brought slaves to the New World to exploit with the blessing of a fictional God !
These people have to  re-write every part of their own History because it is so dysfunctional, and diabolical and insidious, that it is embarrassing just to say the truth, starting all the way back to the first settlers in the North East, 600 years ago, and what a bunch of chumps they were to the Indians who actually kept them alive throughout the harsh winters.
They are the same today. Ungrateful, greedy, selfish, intolerant, and still using religion as their trademark to justify inhumane behavior.
These are the same white bigots that do not want any reproductive choice for all females, but instead want women kept in permanent bondage under the cloak of the fictional and hypocritical Church, mainly the Catholic Church and the Pope.
Sure racism exist in America and it always will to some degree, but their numbers are dwindling. They may be very vocal now, but that is because they see that their power is coming to an ending and they are panicked by it. This is the last hurrah!
It's now or never for these folks, because soon there will be a family of color coming to their block to live, and whoa will the shit hit the fan then!
Don't these people know that they lost the "Civil War" over 140 years ago?
That the "South" lost!
Bigots like Congressman/ Klansman Joe Wilson, just show their true anger at change, at color, at difference, at reality by trying to deny it. Joe you are a limp, old man.
Get over it low self esteemed White people,  you had a good, long run at domination, but your time is over, just enjoy the fresh air, running water, toilets, steak and potato dinners that you have coming your way. Life is good anyway, why screw it up anymore than it has to be?
