I sit in Chicago writing this entry as it snows outside. The inches are piling up and while indoors, I have heard some of the Stone Age Nitwits from the GOP, such as Newt Gingrich, and Uh-Oh’Reilly grotesquely talk that President Obama is making this nation less safe and inviting terroristic attacks through his actions.
In addition, former vice-president Golum-Cheney crawled out of his stinkin’ hole with his slimy Precious declaring that Obama has not been using the word terror enough times to sustain a Viagra stiffy. Have we forgotten that it was he and his squeezy toy Boy Bush that had propagandized the War on Terror under his failed neo-fascist regime?
Here is what Cheney’s criticism of Obama amounted to:
"He seems to think if he has a low-key response to an attempt to blow up an airliner and kill hundreds of people, we won’t be at war. He seems to think if he gives terrorists the rights of Americans, lets them lawyer up and reads them their Miranda rights, we won’t be at war. He seems to think if we bring the mastermind of Sept. 11 to New York, give him a lawyer and trial in civilian court, we won’t be at war…He seems to think if he closes Guantanamo and releases the hard-core al-Qaida-trained terrorists still there, we won’t be at war. He seems to think if he gets rid of the words, 'war on terror,' we won't be at war. But we are at war and when President Obama pretends we aren’t, it makes us less safe. Why doesn’t he want to admit we’re at war? It doesn’t fit with the view of the world he brought with him to the Oval Office. It doesn’t fit with what seems to be the goal of his presidency — social transformation — the restructuring of American society. President Obama’s first object and his highest responsibility must be to defend us against an enemy that knows we are at war." (Politifact.com/truth-o-meter 1-3-10)
This nitwit mastermind, Dick Cheney, makes no sense. I don’t believe he can connect the dots because there is too much missing between brain synapses. What does bringing the September 11 mastermind, Khalid Shaikh Mohammed, have to do with our diligence to control the use of terror tactics and prevent fanatical fundamentalist religious Islamic zealots from entering the United States, which Dick Cheney failed to do?
I believe Cheney seems to forget that he released 574 of Guantanamo suspected terrorists along with one who went to Yemen and allegedly connected with the current Testacle Bomber. So Cheney, once again, was willing to engage in his own brand of terrorism for the world. Golum-Cheney must be a source of terrorism.
Little Boy Bush used the word ‘terror’ 328 times in 73 speeches, yet no matter how many times he used it, suicide bombers and terror attacks still occurred against US soldiers and civilians around the world. I guess Golum-Cheney forgot that well into his administration, after ignoring critical documentation and intelligence gathered by the Clinton administration, Americans found themselves killed on his watch as the nation and world watched two Trade Towers collapse to the ground. It was under his two-terms that this nation suffered incredible pain and hardships.
Was it not Little Boy Bush who sat on a three foot tall little boy’s chair, looking like a school boy dunce, in a kindergarten school room listening to “My Pet Goat”, and continued to sit frozenly unaffected when told that a Trade Tower came tumbling down as the nation came under attack? That was our Little Boy Bush, again, missing in action! Now, whose watch did this occur on? It was not Barack Obama’s watch!
I would like to remind Golum-Cheney that there is NO WAR ON TERRORISM! There is an effort to combat terrorism, but no war on it. You sleep “on” a bed, or sit “on” a chair, but don’t war “on” terror.
How can anyone fight a war against a technique or tactic? There was not even a declared war in Iraq or Afghanistan. None of these conflicts are declared, Mr. Golum-Cheney. You nor Congress never legally declared them as wars, but now you believe that there is an actual war on terrorism. HUH?
So, should there be a war against street gangbanging criminals, too? Should the US army roam the streets of America kicking down the doors of our nation’s gangbangers, drive-byers, and drug-pushers to make the country safer?
So, Golum-Cheney and the Stone Agers of the GOP don’t believe in the Constitutional rule of law by allowing even suspected terrorists to have their day in court? What are we afraid of? Let the facts fall where they may. I do not believe that KSM will be walking anywhere but a maximum security prison and, no doubt, on into a death-row cell. Maybe retiring in a jail cell for the rest of his life could be a better plan.
Just recently, Rudy Guiliani stated that the only terror attacks on US soil have occurred on Barack Obama’s watch. This is the remaking of history by the neo-con Stone Age party. I guess Rudy is brain-dead. He forgot that the towers came down well into the presidency of Little Boy Bush, and the Shoe Bomber, and anthrax episode did too. Wow. There is nothing like fessing up to reality.
These self-righteous American Jihadis, who at one time wore pointy white hoods terrorizing African-Americans and minorities, are now roaming our streets and halls of government wanting to continue to destroy the very financial fabric of this nation. I guess they forgot the facts that it was the legislative policies of the GOP that allowed Newt Gingrich to go forward with a plan raved by McCain, and Phil Gramm to legalize deregulation and do away with accountability oversight practices on behalf of the corporate royalists and their army of lobbyist Brownshirts. They marched in the repeal of the Glass-Steagall Act, and put into play the Commodity Futures Modernization Act of 1999 making it illegal to regulate or supervise private derivative trades. We cannot forget that the frog-lizard man, Newt Gingrich, was initially instrumental in the eventual killing of the economy, destroying state budgets and bringing them very close to insolvency, like we are seeing in California and elsewhere. We cannot forget that this slimy frog-lizard man and former, I remind all of you, former Congressperson (ended in 1998), that without his financial crime syndicate hit called a “Contract With America”, not unlike what Tony Soprano might call a ‘Contract Hit On America’ we might have rescued the country from this devastating economic collapse.
This Stone Age GOP destroyed the economy through their ‘Contract With The Corporate Oligarchs’ to outsource jobs, destroy wage growth, increase the indebtedness of average working people in order to continue to enrich the corporate elite, increase asset values through financial bubbles, erode public safety nets, destroy pensions, shutdown manufacturing sectors, and privatize government, increase the wealth of China through their own investments, and privatize public assets, such as toll roads, parking meters, water sanitation facilities, and more. This is their legacy, and they hope to regain more power.
Now, what is likely to occur via the health care reform bill, unless there is a graduated surtax on premiums, which would tax the top 1% as a way to assist the working lower wage earners in the purchase of health care policies, we will see working people fall further into poverty and indebtedness. This is a planned demolition of the country and destruction of jobs and working people.
1 in 5 American males are unemployed. This will likely not get better for a long time. 20% of males between the ages of 25 to 50 did not have jobs in December. This is the lowest since 1948, and they have chosen to not call this a depression. When the downturn occurred in 2007-8, this figure was at 13%, therefore it is not getting any better. For those over the age of 16, only 58.2% have jobs, which has now reached a 25 year low. The exuberance back in November when we heard that the job market gained only 4000 jobs was really the giddy dope slap before the storm, because December shed 85,000 more jobs. More than 660,000 left the workforce between November and December. It has been stated that around 850,000 people gave up looking for work. The pundits make me laugh because of their make-believe acts. Most of those reading this blog and other blogs knew that jobs would continue to disappear in spite of the circus act performed by the so-called pundits.
We have to remember that before the inauguration of 2009, job losses were incredible, yet now closing President Obama's first year, job losses exceeded 2008. 4.2 million jobs lost in 2009! 115,000 jobs were lost in December of 2008, and 2.6 million jobs were lost in the year of 2008. That was the Bush and the Stone Age party’s legacy.
I read how the deficits are killing the economy. I cannot really buy into it right yet. We read how pumping cash into the economy through stimulus programs will cause inflation, yet Bernanke and the Fed already stuffed $2T into the economy via the financial-investment banking crime sector without any across the board inflation. People are not working or spending as much of their expendable income; therefore prices are being kept deflated in many areas of the economy.
The administration, the Federal Reserve, and President Obama’s regressive economic team continues to destroy American savings, even after working Americans saw trillions of dollars in household wealth disappear. By keeping interest rates down, the average American, who is trying to save money and rebuild their retirement losses, cannot make any ground because money market, and general savings accounts pay little in interest. The 295 million who have been victimized by those at the top 1% of the income ladder through their corporate-investment banking greed, co-opted by our government, will continue to be repressed as long as the rich corporate royalists are able to continue to seriously damage the economics of this country.
Without jobs and a revived manufacturing economy, there won’t be any jobs to speak of. It is time to rebuild our economy with massive job stimulus and not through President Obama’s magic tax incentive plan. He stuffed the banks with trillions of dollars of cash, therefore it is time to make available those same programs for American-only made manufacturing facilities.
Ideally, as the economy begins to recreate new manufacturing jobs, the deficit will shrink. This is why we cannot elect Stone Age GOPsters who don’t want this to happen. They harp about tax cuts for the rich, and cutting more jobs/spending. This has been their mantra. None of their ideas have worked so far.
President Obama needs to protect American manufacturing from exporting nations that artificially keep their currencies low in order to sabotage our own domestic economy. In addition to the business of worker protection, this executive must act as the commander-in-chief of our economic national security, if not, then he has failed every working American in favor of the corporate elite.
Along with this essential demonstration of presidential courage, he must end the government career of his dirtiest weasel—Timmie-da’ G-Geithner, the field marshal lock-stepping to the orders given by the economic crime syndicate.
The latest news story to come forward is that TimmieG, when acting as the chairman of the New York Fed, pressured AIG to delay disclosing to the S.E.C, as well as the American people the details that allowed them to steal congressionally authorized multi-billion dollar bailout funds, which they in turn passed out to their counterparties. Goldman Sachs, for example, was paid off to the tune of 100 cents on their toxic gambles at the mortgage-backed security economic crime syndicate’s crap’s table. Can we call this a conspiracy by a government employee? After this field marshal gets investigated by the Justice department for conspiring against the American people, then a Pink Slip must be handed to Larry Summers, who stated that the recession is now over, and another bankster buddy, Rahm Emmanuel, who appears to have been giving the president the wrong advice.
I guess Americans can decide for themselves if they want to restore the destructive GOP and further their Stone Age agenda and their ‘Contract Against America.’ This is the problem with many Americans—they have been drinking too many Teabagger kool-aid drinks. If they continue to support the Stone Age GOPers, they will get what they deserve, but the rest of us will suffer even more. Unfortunately, there are only two real choices on the list of choices. One choice is out of the running, and the other will be made by default.
If America elects progressive populist representatives, replacing the stale bobble-heads who have rotted out the integrity of our representative government, then they would have more force to push President Obama to make the changes required to repair the damage inflicted by the corrupt corporate elites of this country.
President Obama has not performed as the progressive populist voters had hoped for, nor has the Congressional Democrats performed in such a way, either. This is why it is essential that progressive populists vote for such candidates, or those closest to such a platform. It is our responsibility to keep pushing our officials in this direction.
