What do our opponents mean when they apply to us the label
Liberal? If by Liberal they mean, as they want people to believe,
someone who is soft in his policies abroad, who is against local
government, and who is unconcerned with the taxpayer’s dollar,
then … we are not that kind of Liberal. But if by a Liberal
they mean someone who looks ahead and not behind, someone
who welcomes new ideas without rigid reactions, someone who
cares about the welfare of the people — their health, their
housing, their schools, their jobs, their civil rights, and
their civil liberties — someone who believes we can break
through the stalemate and suspicions that grip us in our policies
abroad, if that is what they mean by a Liberal, then I’m proud
to say I’m a Liberal.
– John F. Kennedy
The above quote by the 35th President of the US, should be heeded
by the right-wingers, and the so-called Tea Party politicians. Sadly
it is not their want. They rather see people lose their jobs, deny them
health care, food and other necessities of life.
They get their jollies off, bashing the current president, repeatedly
lying for just about everything he says and does. It just doesn’t make
any sense at all.
I could go on, but I’m sure you’ll get what I am saying.

In religion and politics people’s beliefs and convictions
are in almost every case gotten at second-hand, and without
examination, from authorities who have not themselves
examined the questions at issue but have taken them at
second-hand from other non-examiners, whose opinions
about them were not worth a brass farthing.
– Mark Twain
Democracy is the art and science of running the circus from the monkey cage.
- H.L. Mencken
Although it is not true that all conservatives are stupid people, it is true that most stupid people are conservative.
- John Stuart Mill (1806-1873)
The only thing we learn from new elections is we learned nothing from the old.
- American Saying
The whole aim of practical politics is to keep the populace alarmed (and hence clamorous to be led to safety) by menacing it with an endless series of hobgoblins, all of them imaginary.
- H.L. Mencken
Mitt Romney is sticking to what he said, that FEMA should be done away with, and let the states and or the private sector take over. You know what that would be like if the private sector was running it. It would make any disaster more worse, than what actual mayhem and destruction it already created.

With Mitt Romney talking about the 47%, the ones that pay no taxes, but are on food stamps, welfare, or retired people who pay no taxes (income) etc., etc. Well now. Mitt doesn’t mention his father George was on general relief, when the family fled Mexico in 1912. And here’s a video of Mitt’s mom talking about receiving help.
When President Obama stopped in at the Big Apple Pizza in Ft. Pierce, Florida, he was greeted with a hug and lifted up in the air by the owner, Scott Van Duzer. Because of what Duzer did, he is getting a lot of flack from the Republican crazies, who need to get a life, and stop acting like the pathetic assholes that they are.

Mitt Romney’s traveling press secretary Rick Gorka has no class at all, telling reporters to “kiss my ass.” It seems that Romney refuses to answer any questions from reporters, other than the ones at Fox News, which isn’t saying much, as they will ask him the softball questions, nothing to hard, cause that teax Mitt’s brain, and spew out even more gaffes.

One more clown in Congress? Why not.
Now that Mitt Romney is in London, he has made so many gaffes, that it isn’t even funny. One of them was, that he told reporters, that he met with the leader of MI6 which is like the CIA. In Britain that’s a no-no. It’s supposed to be kept quiet.
Mitt is a walking-talking disaster.

What made Bill Clinton make a statement, calling for the Bush era tax cuts be extended. Of course the orange coated John Boehner was all giddy, along with the other GOPers. Now the Obama White House is quite pissed about it, and I don’t blame them one bit, as Obama has been wanting the rich to pay more taxes.
