Recent News, aka More Corruption
Just a reminder, I am an independant swing voter and have been since the Vietnam war. I am an American and will speak out about anyone who damages our republic, our democracy, our democratic institutions, our democratic values, the very fabric of our society.
The Republicans, the Republican party, George Bush, Rove, Rice, Cheney, Rumsfeld, Ashcroft, Gonzales, Powell and the nazi-fascist neocons like Cheney and John Bolton and others like The Council On Foreign Relations, the Trilateral Commission and Big Business(oil companies big pharma, insurance, health care, banking, defense companies and especially the Republican congress and the theocrats (Catholic Church,my church I am ashamed to admit) and the other fundamentalist religions like the white southern Baptists all of whom have done and are doing damage to our beloved America are among those in the focus of my comments.
Regarding the Catholic Church, there seems to be no one that speaks for me and to me from within it. Whereas among the Baptists there are some who can speak for me including people such as Pres. Jimmy and Rosalyn Carter, Bill Moyers, Billy Graham(but not his son Franklin who politicizes religion) Joel Osteen and others.
My Catholic Church instead of reminding us of the path to God and His Kingdom along with the white southern confederacy Baptists and some other fundamentalist religions have completely politicized religion and in fact listening to them is just like listening to Karl Rove and his Repub 'talking points' so why bother listening to these so called religious leaders.
I wonder just how long it will be before these fundamentalist religions discover that they are being 'USED' (or maybe they already know it and are seduced by the power they get from the Repubs) by Rove and the Repubs just to get votes, political gain, money and power. I hope they wise up soon because I don't want to see Catholicism or any religion for that matter destroyed or damaged.
I abhor religious fundamentalists, be they islamic jihadists or american jihadists like the radical right wing religious Catholic church and white southern Baptists. Now the american jihadists fundie theocrats will try to argue that they have not killed any one but they LIE. They have killed Afghanis, Iraquis and american troops.
Why do I focus on the Republican party, because they are the party that is in complete control of all three branchs of our government and thus of our entire country. If the Dems ever get back into power and do the kinds of things the Repubs have done I will comment on them with equal vehemence. So I angrily and vehemently comment on the damage the Repubs are doing to our beloved America.
The Repubs are Repubs first and Americans last, I am an American first above all else and a citizen of the world second and a politician not at all. In my estimation the way politics is currently practiced in America is a dirty, filthy, slimy BUSINESS, an occupation I and most Americans just seem to almost despise. Rove and the Repubs have taken american(small 'a') politics to an all time low, involved as it is in crime, corruption, the support of porn, and the endless seeking after money and political power. It's amazing to me that the Theocrats in the fundamentalist religions support those ends.
Well, corruption and the conservatives have struck again. The US Supreme Court which gave the corrupt Jeb Bush/Katherine Harris Florida election to George Bush by allowing the votes of many, many thousands of Floridians to be cancelled/uncounted and which then gave the presidency to Georgie boy Bush (the worst president America has ever had, who could ever imagine that there could be a pres. worse than Nixon another Republican pres. Question, why do the Repubs seem to come up with so many corrupt presidents?
The SCOTUS has ruled that the Texas/ DeLay/ Repub/ gerrymandering of districts was just fine, hunky dory, and an all around ok thing to do. Let us see if they rule the same way when the Dems do that. As one would expect the Republican Catholic cabal on the Court led it to that decision, Alito et.al. strike again. These people are just hell bent on destroying America on behalf of the very narrow agenda of a very small constituency of certain specific special interest groups in what was once OUR AMERICA and is now THEIR AMERICA.
What I have just written and will write really requires editing for structure but the Repubs are doing so much destruction so fast that I don't have the time to edit and keep up with my comments regarding almost daily revelations of this ongoing destruction.
As anyone can readily see my learning disability in written expression is quite obvious. For that life long and very limiting disability I have the Republican company Lilly, in Indianapolis, to thank because I was injected with Thimerasol, their invention which contains mercury, along with my childhood vaccinations.
I cannot begin to tell you of how many hundreds of parents have told me of the damage that was done to their children, mostly boys but also girls, after receiving the same injections I received. Lilly made a lot of money on that substance and now are protected by a law passed by the Republican party that will protect them and so many other companies from corporate culpability including the oil industry pollution of america's water supply with their gasoline additive, the drug industry with so many examples such as Vioxx, the chemical industry and so many other industries too numerous to mention. These and so many other corporations make money doing and getting away with these things while the average, everyday, ordinary citizens of America pay a life long price. The fundamentalist Theocrats who claim the moral high ground, have just given up and let go of that high ground to support the Republican party and corporations that damage the environment and people. But these groups still claim exclusive rights to the moral high ground.
Another subject that is not be discussed nearly enough is that of the electronic voting machines and the companies who make them like Diebold of Canton, Oh and the others all of whom are Republican owned and dedicated to the Republican agenda and who make these machines, which by the reports of many computer experts, can be easily sabotaged to produce whatever results these Republican companies want them to produce. If Alito and the Supreme Court cabal don't take away our vote, and they are working on it, these machines certainly will.
I guess The New World Order will be the world dominated by the USA, which in turn is dominated by the Republican party, US corporations, and american fundamentalist religious theocrats namely, the Catholoic church and the white southern Baptists in the confederate states. It's just AMAZING that these religions endorse killing which they should abhor and do not insist upon diplomacy above all else.
