The Next Phase Begins


Although 2016 is turning out to be the most depressing political year since the uber debacle of 1968, we might at least console ourselves with this fact: It certainly hasn't been boring - that's pretty obvious. In fact, in terms of pure political theater, this primary season is an unparalleled delight. One political party has lost its mooring, the other its sanity. These are interesting times to be alive.

The biggest news last night (although the least surprising) was the withdrawal from the race of the GOP's golden child, Marco Rubio. Say what you want about the poor schlub, at least he was smart enough to see the writing on the wall. When he was unable to carry his own state of Florida, it was all over. The story of the implosion of the Rubio campaign illustrates perfectly the utter ideological chaos of the Republican Party. As comically right wing as the senator is, he just isn't extreme enough for the imbeciles and crazy people who have hijacked "the party of Abraham Lincoln". It is now a two-man race between Ted Cruz and Donald Trump - two of the most unstable candidates in American history. Although the least nauseating of the bunch, Rubio never stood a chance. If that very fact doesn't scream untold volumes about the state of conservatism in America, nothing will.

"And something is happening but you don't know what it is
Do you, Mr. Jones."

Although most "professional" Republicans are in an absolute panic regarding their prospects for Election Day, your average, rank-and-file primary voter is utterly clueless concerning the direction this is headed. They seem to be in a state of utter denial. On Inauguration Day next year, for the first time in one-hundred and sixty years, one Democratic administration will follow another one into the executive mansion. That's the good news. The bad news is that the next president will more-than-likely be Hillary Rodham Clinton. It's incredible to think that so awful a candidate should be a shoe-in to be elected. That's how bad things have gotten for the Republicans.

Here's something you can take to the bank: Political conventions have become so scripted and antiseptic in the last forty years that they're too boring to watch anymore. Donald Trump has predicted that if he is denied the nomination there will be riots. Since the movers and shakers on the RNC are working overtime at this very moment to make sure that he, in fact, does not receive the nomination, and given the general instability of your average Trump mob, the Republican laugh fest in Cleveland this summer will be the first political convention since the Democrats' disaster in Chicago in '68 that will be worth watching - gavel to gavel. That is just gonna be oodles of fun.


It's hard to say what Bernie Sanders will do now that his candidacy is all-but-doomed. I hope he sticks it out for no other reason than to keep Hillary from moving back to the center. His existence in the race has forced her to take stands on a few issues she would no-doubt have preferred to remain silent on. She has taken positions that she'll be hard-pressed to back track on if she is finds herself living in the White House in ten months. We can thank Bernie Sanders for that. In the final analysis his quest for the presidency will not have been in vain.

It's okay to still feel the Bern.

Judge Merrick Garland
BREAKING NEWS, 11:43 AM:

President Obama has just nominated Chief Judge of the DC Circuit Court of appeals, Merrick Garland (no relation to Judy I'm sure) to fill the Supreme Court vacancy left with the passing of Antonin Scalia last month. Neither a liberal firebrand nor a conservative extremist, Garland is apparently as middle of the road as it is possible to be. The Republican "brand" is so badly damaged these days, they would be smart to confirm him as soon as possible.

Wishful thinking, I know.

A few months ago, some anonymous person - whether trying to be funny or spiteful (I'm not sure) - put me on the mailing list of the Ted Cruz For President campaign. I received a note from Ted just a few minutes ago, soliciting a contribution:

"Tom....[me 'n' Ted are on a first-name basis - ain't that a riot?] Because you have been one of my most loyal supporters -- I'm reaching out to you first. This could be a huge boost for my campaign -- even the difference between winning and losing. Will you help?"

Sure, Ted. The check's in the mail.

As for Hillary Clinton, it is obvious to me that she is the anointed Queen who has bought her way to the head of the Democratic Party. That's not to imply that she's an idiot - or, at least, she's not a complete idiot. Money talks, bullshit walks.

Of all of the contenders in this political season, she's the most nauseating. That is what is known as "telling it like it is".

There is no doubt that I would lose a lot of sleep if she is elected, after all do you really trust her in a crisis at 3AM in the morning?

We'll deserve everything that happens to us if we're naive enough to go down this road again of electing someone like Obama who had achieved nothing prior to being POTUS. Maybe Hillary drops dead before the election!

The fact of the matter is that I'm too old to pull up stakes and go into exile. Given the worst-case-scenario, I'll be forced to rough it out with the rest of you. If Bernie somehow ends up in Cuba or Venezuela, I may follow him there!

Did you ever dream you would live to see a day when so huge a segment of the American electorate would lose all sense of reality?

I laugh at these Chicken Little's who claim the world will end if a certain person gets elected president. All the liberals who said they would move to Canada if Bush was elected, or the clowns who said they would leave the country if Obama was elected. The claims that Obama has destroyed America are laughable. Partisan hacks always come off as funny, but stupid. I'll buy your plane ticket to.....Russia....China.....Syria....or wherever you think is better than America no matter who is president.

One thing he shouldn't do is throw his endorsement to Clinton. That would be a travesty. But, I think that's what he'll do.


"We can thank Bernie Sanders for that. In the final analysis his quest for the presidency will not have been in vain."

It will have been if he endorses Clinton. Otherwise, it was all for naught. My best hope: He endorses Jill Stein...and she welcomes him as her vice presidential running mate.

Who are the racists?

Moveon.org, BLM, LaRaza, LGBT, CAIR and the universities are fascist organizations that want to shut down free speech.

The average person is respectful and tolerant of divergent points of view. The radical leftists not so much. Those leftist groups are the fascists who want to take away the personal ownership of guns and define speech. They are the ones who want to have the federal government criminalize speech except speech that furthers their movement. Who did that in history? They were Mussolini, Hitler, Lenin, and Stalin. These people cannot be allowed to bully their way to change the country.

I think I need to point out to another anonymous poster that Fascism is a far right ideology, not far left. Fascism is NOT Socialism, and neither of them are Communism. Before you open your mouth, learn about the topic you wish to speak so as not to make yourself look stupid.

As for free speech, it's only the government that's not allowed to infringe upon that right, not the general public. Also, you seem to think only people you agree with should have that right. I'll refer to the last sentence in the previous paragraph for my suggestion to you.

To your ridiculous comments about taking away guns and criminalizing speech, I posit that you can't provide a single piece of evidence to back up your allegations without quoting some right-wing blog, who also can't back up their statements with actual (credible) pieces of legislation. I won't hold my breath, because there aren't any for you to cite.

No, not really. Like Teddy Roosevelt did in 1912 when he started the Progressive Party -- he could endorse Jill Stein, get on her ticket, and totally blow up the existing paradigm.


"...or else some of his supporters will decide it's better to cut off everyone's nose to spite their face and stay home that November Tuesday."

No, not the real believers in the need for an overhaul. They'll move with him...in a heartbeat.


"And liberal voters staying home is part of the path to President Trump..."

I disagree, since true liberals are not democrats. Democrats will stay home. Liberals would follow him.

It's probably a mute point. The system's rigged, and where rigging the system isn't enough, it's fixed. Clinton is the person the powers-that-be want in the Oval Office. That being the case, they'll get what they want. (That's why it's time to throw in a monkey wrench. Desperate times call for desperate measures. The old way of doing things isn't working anymore.)

Couldnt of put it better myself. I wasnt a Trump supporter to begin with,i figured let it play out. Then the circus began. Listening to attacks on trump at the very beginning of this cycle. It was daily. Then Im watching 2 other politicians,sit and claim they'll fight for us if the vote them into presidency. One bragging about how well he gets along with the establishment,but is an outsider. Then we had Rubio,who i actually did like at first. That was until i saw him do a personality two-step. Go from being himself,to wanna be trump.
I am now looking at it this way. After some paying close attention,and some searching,have come to a startling fact. Out of the six candidates on the stage,(repub `&Demo sides)4 of them are partially or fully funded by the same communist Billionare. Coincidentally,so are about 4 establishment republican senators. And bout 14 in the house. As well as several Governors &State Senators.(aka.. superdelegates) The very ones trying anything to stop Trump.
Now some of those same Repub's,that would never vote cruz or trump,are now rallying behind cruz.
Now this is just me(and everybody I know), but they're rallying behind cruz because they can still have some leverage thru his donors. Whereas with Trump,like him or hate em,IS the only one on that stage who is not working for donors. Or actually one big donor(the real pres),and a bunch of little ones. You've prob heard of this particular billionaire,he's the one thats been sending his groups out to protest for the past 4yrs. He formed like 40 diff groups. For only purpose of causing divide. Why else,would you almost entirely fund, The new black panther party,black lives matter & the kkk. As well as catholic and jewish org,and the Athiest groups that go after them. We will be seeing them in the next cpl days

No problems with having a moderate but Garland voted to reconsider the Heller case that guaranteed an individual right to possess a firearm in the home (a modest assumption of the 2nd amendment). I can't tolerate someone who has the capacity to ignore even one Amendment in the bill of rights.

No, of course not. No more than you'd concede that true conservatives are fascists.

I will say this, however, in order to build upon my case that we live in an age of corpo-fascism. When dyed-in-the-wool democrats willingly support the current paradigm of government -- one whose policies support and advocate permanent and ongoing wars, corporate welfare, and the rights of corporate entities over the rights of human beings -- than they're not liberals by any stretch of the imagination. They're only corporatists -- just as the vast majority of republicans and conservatives are.

The wife of Ted Cruz works for Goldman Sachs:

"...in 2012, Cruz used a loan that his wife took out from Goldman to help to finance his successful Senate campaign, during which he honed his reputation as a critic of bank bailouts and corporate cronyism. The Goldman loan, which was for between two hundred and fifty thousand and half a million dollars, wasn’t disclosed to the Federal Election Commission, as it should have been. Rather than publicly acknowledging its existence, Cruz subsequently told reporters that he and his wife had liquidated practically all of their personal savings to help pay for the campaign.

Heidi Cruz joined Goldman in 2005 and ran its Houston wealth-management unit, which, the report said, “handles portfolios for clients with an average net worth of $40 million.” Last spring, she took an unpaid leave of absence from Goldman to work on her husband’s campaign."

JG,
I would say all Republicans are not conservatives.
But I have to ask you since you said "No more than you'd concede that true conservatives are fascists" would true liberals identify more with the goals of socialism or communism or capitalism ?
As a conservative first I want less federal govt control in my life but am willing to accept more State control.
As a liberal do you want more federal gov control and less State control?

Do you believe that corporat cronyism that TR put the breaks on, has under liberalism got a new start under the New Deal? Think about the rules and regs passed under FDR and a congress under democrat control for 40 years, has cronyism grow or shrunk?
I realize that the reason given is that uncontrolled capitalism is bad.
I believe as a anti big federal govt. the path to cronyism, socialism and fascism is full of good intended regulations.

Instead of asking who pulls the strings of state and federal government, Chuck limits his question to "control" by governments. Let's look through that narrow field of vision for a second.

As a liberal do you want more federal gov control and less State control?

Ask the slaves before the Civil War.

Ask the long time voters who were stuck in long lines to comply with ID requirements that North Carolina Republicans unilaterally imposed.

Ask the women forced by state Republicans to have ultrasounds if they want an abortion.

Ask the residents of Flint who were forced to drink lead in their water because Michigan Republicans wanted to save a few thousand dollars.

Ask the people who breathe the air and drink water that carries pollution from state to state. This is why it is bad if corporations write our laws. This grants them power over the federal government and suppresses any democracy we have left. Government MUST have more power than corporations if the Constitutional regulation of commerce is to be implemented.

Why do cons have a problem with our Constitution that they want to reverse that power structure?

The Constitution says the National Federal Government is the ultimate authority of the nation. Federal law must supersede state law, just as state law supersedes local ordinances.

This is America. Leave, if this is not what you want. Or stay and witness the demolition of democracy and representative republic.

"February is when you first arrived on the scene, and it wasn't until January of the next year that you actually did something. That's the problem," Rep. Jason Chaffetz, chairman of the House Oversight Committee, said to EPA administrator Gina McCarthy. "You didn't take action. You didn't. You could have pulled that switch."

"Wow. You just don't get it. You just don't get it. You still don't get it," a furious Chaffetz said, and asked her why she hasn't resigned over the public health emergency.

"You didn't take action. You didn't. You could have pulled that switch."

McCarthy said the agency "took action from that point forward," adding it shouldn't have been "so trusting of the state."

Rep. Brendan Boyle, D-Pa., called Flint "possibly the largest and most glaring failure of government since Hurricane Katrina" and asked Snyder why he didn't act sooner, either.

You cannot be a socialist and an imperialist. You cannot, as Bernie Sanders has done, support the Obama administration’s wars in Afghanistan, Iraq, Libya, Pakistan, Somalia and Yemen and be a socialist. You cannot, as Sanders has done, vote for military appropriations bills, including every bill and resolution that empowers and sanctions Israel to carry out its slow-motion genocide of the Palestinian people, and be a socialist. And you cannot laud, as Sanders has done, military contractors because they bring jobs to your state. Sanders may have the rhetoric of inequality down, but he is a full-fledged member of the Democratic Caucus, which kneels before the war industry and their lobbyists. And no genuine grass-roots movement will ever be born within the bowels of the Democratic Party establishment, which is currently attempting to shut down Sanders to make sure its anointed candidate is the nominee. No elected official dares to challenge any weapons system, no matter how costly or redundant. And Sanders, who votes with the Democrats 98 percent of the time, steers clear of confronting the master of war.

Sanders, of course, like all elected officials, profits from this Faustian pact. The Vermont Democratic Party leadership, in return for his deference, has not supported any candidate to run against Sanders since 1990. Sanders endorses Democratic candidates, no matter how much they push neoliberalism down our throats, including Bill Clinton and Barack Obama. And Sanders, carrying water for the Democrats, is the primary obstacle to the building of a third party in Vermont.

There is a reason no establishment politician, including Sanders, dares say a word against the war industry. If you do, you end up like Ralph Nader, tossed into the political wilderness. Nader was not afraid to speak this truth. And it is in the wilderness, I am afraid, that real socialists must for the moment reside. Socialists understand that if we do not dismantle the war industry, nothing, absolutely nothing, will change; indeed, things will only get worse.

Chuck Morre: "I would say all Republicans are not conservatives."

Okay, I concede your point. Maybe two or three of 'em aren't.


"...would true liberals identify more with the goals of socialism or communism or capitalism?"

I would say it would be wrong to frame liberals under any specific economic or political system, as you're asking me to do. Liberals can't be pigeon-holed under any single category, simply because all liberals are free thinkers -- each forming his or her own opinion about important matters, which include economics, politics, religion, etc., instead of automatically accepting what others, including authorities, believe (or say to believe). Liberals don't march lockstep to any particular economic, religious or political philosophy.

That said, liberals tend to favor reform, they're tolerant of the ideas and behavior of others (assuming it doesn't infringe upon the rights of others), and they're open to new ideas. Liberals are not bound to traditional ways of thinking. They're very broad-minded.

All the attributes that make you not a liberal. ;-)


"As a liberal do you want more federal gov control and less State control?"

As a liberal, I want less control. Period. But I also want justice and equality for all, so therefore I recognize the need to regulate in order to protect the few from the many, and to protect those originally recognized by the Founders as rightfully protected by the Constitution from legal fictions that have been granted constitutional protections by wayward conservative courts.


"As a side note, not that you personally care, this is my my 2nd post on this thread. I'm in Texas this week watching my grandson pitch for his high school team. Regardless of what the the crazies who stalk me say."

We must stop looking for our salvation in strong leaders. Strong people, as Ella Baker said, do not need strong leaders. Politicians, even good politicians, play the game of compromise and are too often seduced by the privileges of power. Sanders, from all I can tell, began his political life as a socialist in the 1960s when this was hardly a bold political statement, but quickly figured out he was not going to have a seat at the table if he remained one. He wants his seniority in the Senate. He wants his committee chairmanships. He wants his ability to retain his seat unchallenged. This was no doubt politically astute. But in this process he sold us out.

All to save a few dollars per person affected. It's a damn good thing we have the EPA to finally step in to deal with the Republican made disaster.

In fact Susan Hedman the former director of the EPA's Midwest regional office, resigned in February.

Note that there is NO acceptance of accountability from the "personal accountability" party.

Texas does have internet service, I just choose to not waste my time while there on a liberal blog whose owner freely admits it is a cesspool of liberal propaganda, when I could spend that time with my family. I'm sure as a family man yourself you completely understand.


"So Gina McCarthy, head of the EPA, knew about the Flint Michigan water problem for about 1 year but did absolutely nothing about it."

Is this true??? I thought Big Federal Govt existed to prevent this from happening?

Chuck-

Read the papers . . . The Feds placed restrictions on the EPA allowing all states to determine their own fate. As a matter of consequence, the EPA did not become aware until after the water was switched back. Interestingly, now to see those 535+ bad asses scold the EPA after they voted to nueter Gina. Regards.

YStone,

"the EPA did not become aware until after the water was switched back."

So the EPA did or did not know about the problem for close to a year?
Switched back to what from what?

Not to long ago, when we first started to experience the "surge" of aliens crossing illegally into our country, I expressed a concern that these non-citizens would end up voting illegally. I was told not to worry, that would not happen, that I was a racist for even broaching that concern, that I needed to stop watching FOX and listening to Rush.

Now I will be told to stop reading Bloomberg!

www.bloomberg.com/news/articles/2016-03-20/stop-trump-movement-gets-boost-from-mexico-s-efforts-in-u-s

Soros Board Member Chairs Firm Running Online Voting for Tuesday’s Utah Caucuses.
Smartmatic Group, an electronic voting firm whose worldwide headquarters is located in the United Kingdom, will be running the online balloting process in the Utah Republican Open Caucuses on Tuesday.

The chairman of Smartmatic’s board, Lord Mark Malloch-Brown, currently serves on the board of George Soros’s Open Society Foundation and has close ties to the billionaire.

My point in bringing this up YStone is which papers would you suggest I read in order to view the world as you do?

Are you admitting you don't know what papers I should read?

YStone and I are in an adult conversation, not an argument, but a conversation. You can't stand that can you? So feeling left out you jump in uninvited. How lacking in self confidence you must be.

You see Dubya, you and the other liberals who post on this blog of self proclaimed naughty liberal propaganda use Uncle Saul's rule number 5 all the time, IE:

RULE 5: “Ridicule is man’s most potent weapon.” There is no defense. It’s irrational. It’s infuriating. It also works as a key pressure point to force the enemy into concessions.

Sucks to be exposed for whop you are, doesn't it? And that is Great Aunt Sally.

Dubya, I see you posted in two different places just now. Looks like once in your mom's basement and the other at work. LOL

“Make the enemy live up to its own book of rules.” But never live up to your own rules.

Another great example of Dubya following Saul's rules for radicals.

Here's another one Duyba loves to do as he has been taught to never prevent his opposition to gain the initiative.
"Pick the target, freeze it, personalize it, and polarize it.”

But Dubya forgets when he (YAWN) calls his opposition Nazis, racists, and blames GWB (for the one millionth time that,

"A tactic that drags on too long becomes a drag.”

Saul would be unhappy with your failure to follow his radical handbook.

Since you are so excited and may I say, breathless, to rudely interrupt my conversation with YStone, why dont you figure how to turn this around or dodge it.

...Sent mobs to obstruct vote counts.

...Openly scorned democracy.

“Exceptionalism”.

...Denounced those who opposed their war of aggression as "siding with the enemy".

"A better and peaceful world is possible — a world where people and nature come before profits. That’s socialism. That’s our vision. We are the Communist Party USA."

Well here's a tip for both of you. You are being called out to "live up to your own book of rules." Tell the world how allowing non citizens to vote is making democracy stronger? Because your fellow liberal radical progressive socialists are trying to do just that. Liberals like you two have been using Rule 10 to cover the ILLEGAL SURGE the President has allowed at our borders. Tell us how allowing illegals to work in our country makes Unions stronger and wages to grow?

The answer is clear as that mole over your eyebrow, you can't.

It is clear that when confronted with the true facts that liberals Nazis and Commies all share the same goals, the only way they can reply is to spread more of the same old lies.

Here are the rules to the liberal progressive socialist democrat game of Monopoly, that Dubya loves to play:


Every trip around the board you pass GO.
If you're the leader, you must give one piece of property the player with the least property.
Same goes for houses, hotels, etc .
Instead of collecting $200, you pay income tax of 35% to be split between the other players.
Soon no one is buying property, houses or hotels.
Eventually everyone quits trying and just waits for their handout when someone else passes GO.

It's an anti-American thing, the MAJORITY of Americans understand ti all to well.

Chuck Morre: "'As a liberal, I want less control.' You understand JG, that is the classical liberal view that ended with the progressive movement under President Wilson?"

Chuck, it appears you took my first sentence out of context. Here...I'll provide the whole paragraph again for you:

"As a liberal, I want less control. Period. But I also want justice and equality for all, so therefore I recognize the need to regulate in order to protect the few from the many, and to protect those originally recognized by the Founders as rightfully protected by the Constitution from legal fictions that have been granted constitutional protections by wayward conservative courts."

I hardly believe my thoughts coincide with "classical liberalism."

MAYBE if Obama opens up relations with Cuba, we can influence them and help the human rights issues, and THEN they won't NEED to come here.

And why are Cubans "refugees" when they crash the border, but Mexicans are "illegals"?

Also, it's not a "family vacation" when Obama is doing the nation's work. He took his family, MAYBE he actually likes having them around and wants to TEACH his girls something?

Bush would have taken HIS daughters, but all that rum would have been in jeopardy.

Should Obama draw any more lines in the sand?

Arab Spring, a good or a bad thing?

Liberals, a regular laugh a minute. When confronted with the true FACTS of how dumb it is to put their faith in a central government, they bring up GWB. Must be out of having nothing to say how stupid they are.

Der Socialists, what are those ungrateful Cubans fleeing from? Why it's socialism,
the same crap that you want the USA to embrace.

"Those who were interviewed by the Herald have little hope for any meaningful change in Cuba leading to more freedom. “Everybody who leaves Cuba knows that nothing is going to change there,” said one migrant. “And if there is going to be change, it will take 30 or 40 years. Perhaps longer.” Miami Herald. Did you read that Mozart, Obama is going to change Cuba, he's just going to prop it up with USA dollars.

Life under socialism
"In Cuba, there's nothing. There's no freedom. We came from Cuba because the pressure that we have there.... Like all the Cubans did. I came from Ecuador. I walked for 27 days on the road." Giovanni Acosta

"A federal appeals court spanked the IRS Tuesday, saying it has taken laws designed to protect taxpayers from the government and turned them on their head, using them to try to protect the tax agency from the very tea party groups it targeted.

The judges ordered the IRS to quickly turn over the full list of groups it targeted so that a class-action lawsuit, filed by the NorCal Tea Party Patriots, can proceed. The judges also accused the Justice Department lawyers, who are representing the IRS in the case, of acting in bad faith — compounding the initial targeting — by fighting the disclosure.
The case stems from the IRS‘ decision in 2010 to begin subjecting tea party and conservative groups to intrusive scrutiny when they applied for nonprofit status.

An inspector general found several hundred groups were asked inappropriate questions about their members’ activities, their fundraising and their political leanings."

Who was it who said Republicans couldn't win unless they cheated?

Notice how David M Dubya is trying to change the term socialism into something he thinks is more palatable.

How does he sleep at night when he knows the Communist Party of the USA says,
" That’s socialism. That’s our vision. We are the Communist Party USA."

He is a Anti-American, he will defend and lie in anyway to bring about socialism and its destructive effects on what was once (before Obama) the greatest country on the planet.

Dave, I'd have to say you're probably right. Other reasons could be (which would be symptoms, I'm sure, of having no Republicans) no crony capitalism, no military-industrial-surveillance complex (meaning no permanent and on-going wars exclusively for profit motives -- and no false-flag events to propagandize the citizenry that these wars are justified and to "keep America free"), no legal preferences and bias afforded corporations over human citizens, and no poisonous "flinty" water. The list could go on.

Democrats are well on the road to learning the finer points of corrupt behavior and maligning with dark interests, but the Republicans are truly the champions. They've been doing it a lot longer. Corruption and darkness are in their DNA. It comes second nature to them. It's their natural talent.

Chuck, and England has a queen. Not sure what point you're trying to make here. Should we hate Denmark and England? Tell us who we should hate.

I love how you point to the miserable conditions in Cuba and say "LOL!!! Socialism fail!" without acknowledging the effect of decades of the economic embargo.

Have you heard of the Cato Institute? This is what they said about the embargo:

The embargo has been a failure by every measure. It has not changed the course or nature of the Cuban government. It has not liberated a single Cuban citizen. In fact, the embargo has made the Cuban people a bit more impoverished, without making them one bit more free. At the same time, it has deprived Americans of their freedom to travel and has cost US farmers and other producers billions of dollars of potential exports.

Now what is your argument against President Obama lifting the embargo (other than the fact he's a democrat)? Is it because you object to human rights abuses? President Obama met with Cuban dissidents. The dissidents are happy to open relations with the U.S.

The computer you type your comments on: most likely it was assembled in China, by very poorly paid Chinese. Possibly slave labor. You're aware of the human rights abuses in China, aren't you? Should we begin an economic embargo of China? How about Saudi Arabia? How many citizens of that country are allowed to speak up against their government? You know they hold public beheadings, right? There are no progressive bloggers over there.

If you were a citizen of China or Saudi Arabia, and you said the things about your leaders that you've said here about President Obama, you'd be sitting in prison right now. (China) Or you'd have your head chopped off. (Saudi Arabia)

Denmark and England allow all sorts of dissent and progressive blogs, despite their monarchies.

Since Chuckie likes to invoke some obscure “rules”, let’s show a couple rules he violates every day in shilling for the Party of Mammon, Party of tax cuts for the rich, and Party of taking food stamps from children.

You shall have no other gods before Me.

Chuckie’s god is the Republican Party. He dares not criticize them in any way. He will deflect, deny, and distract from their dishonesty, corruption, lust for war and torture and greed. He serves this evil over his fellow man, and openly scorns the “least among us” as “takers”. He will violate any rules of decency and honesty in service to his Party.

“You shall not bear false witness against your neighbor.”

This rule is for suckers. IOKIYAR to lie.

This means “Don’t lie”, of course. Trumpie Chuckie refuses to retract any of his lies about socialism and the Trump lie about an ISIS video. Truth is not his priority. He serves his masters’ agenda with lies and hateful demonization of those with true compassion for the least of us.

Finally Chuck represents everything and everyone opposed to this rule:

For I was hungry and you gave me something to eat, I was thirsty and you gave me something to drink, I was a stranger and you invited me in, 36 I needed clothes and you clothed me, I was sick and you looked after me, I was in prison and you came to visit me.’

“Then the righteous will answer him, ‘Lord, when did we see you hungry and feed you, or thirsty and give you something to drink?38 When did we see you a stranger and invite you in, or needing clothes and clothe you? 39 When did we see you sick or in prison and go to visit you?’

“The King will reply, ‘Truly I tell you, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers and sisters of mine, you did for me.’

"some obscure “rules”
"Alinsky rules”

It's odd since I never used Alinsky's name that David knew who wrote those "obscure rules”. Kind of blew your radical cover there Mr. Dubya. Good to see you're still following the Rules, with your use of Rules 2 & 4. But you are ignoring Rule & and is that due to your failure to obey under Rule 7.

Socialist Communist USSR collapsed, was there an embargo that caused that? What should be clear by now is there can be no socialism if there isn't first capitalism. Socialism stymies the productivity of the people as exampled by the Socialist Monopoly game. Capitalism by its very nature creates competition, winners and losers and innovation that socialism comes along and then shares. No capitalism, limited stuff for socialism to "share".

David M Dubya, he doesn't often drink beer, but when he does, it's someone else's.

LOL

Okay Chuck, you didn't really address any of my points. But I didn't expect you to.

If you read back a few comments, you mentioned the name "Saul" with your "rules" so again, another lie.

I feel like you think this is 1956 and you're Senator Joe McCarthy, waving an empty sheet of paper of known communists, telling Dave he's blown his cover. Like you think Dave's career is ruined or something with you exposing him as a socialist. Your comment history is weird performance art. I'm not completely convinced you're being serious here.

And then a few comments later he says:

In fairness, Trumpie Chuckie got this part correct, "Capitalism by its very nature creates competition, winners and losers". Yeah, but it also creates gross inequality, corrupt government by "Corporate persons", pollution of air and water, and the destruction of representative democracy.

As we have learned, de-regulated capitalism made losers of most Americans in 2008. Five Trillion Dollars in pensions, 401ks, home values, and savings were wiped out by de-regulated Wall Street capitalism.

It makes losers when they off-shore jobs. The swindler banksters are like Republicans. IOKIYA A Banker. They got bailed out and were never held accountable. In fact Republicans want to de-regulate Wall Street even more, as they cut taxes for their elite masters.

How will that work out?

They don't care. They win because their losses are socialized while their profits are privatized. They get to have their cake and eat it too. It's what crony capitalism and corporatocracy look like.

What about America? We know what they think about Americans. Chumps. And they are half correct about that. There are always enough chumps to keep Republicans in power.

Look at Trumpie Chuckie. Prime example of someone who hates all Americans who think differently than his cult indoctrination.

An independent panel investigating the Flint, Michigan, water crisis laid blame directly on Gov. Rick Snyder’s office, concluding that inept state employees in charge of supervising water quality and state-appointed emergency managers ignored mounting problems with the city water supply and stubbornly disregarded signs of widespread contamination.

The task force, which described the effects of the crisis as “long-lasting,” also concluded that environmental injustice had contributed to the government’s slow-footed response to complaints from Flint residents about the foul and discolored water that was making them sick.

“Flint residents, who are majority black or African-American and among the most impoverished of any metropolitan area in the United States, did not enjoy the same degree of protection from environmental and health hazards as that provided to other communities,” the report concluded.

The task force was appointed by the governor, and its report, which was released in Flint on Wednesday, set off a discussion at a news conference about whether race was a factor in the cascade of government missteps that caused and then prolonged exposure to the contaminated water in Flint.

“Environmental injustice is not about overt acts of racism,” said Ken Sikkema, a panel member and former state senator, at the news conference. “It’s not about motivation. It’s not about deliberate attacks on a certain population group. It’s not about overt violations, attacks on civil rights. It’s about equal treatment.”

As proven repeatedly and hilariously, what Trumpie Cluckie thinks he "knows" never corresponds with reality.

How personal.

Perhaps he entertains some forbidden gay fantasy that includes me.

Or maybe he's pretending that I'm John Lennon and he's Mark Chapman and he'd just like to shoot me. It's not inconceivable he's come unglued like those numerous other Right Wing terrorists he supports. He has shown us he is that kind of hateful thug.

But I'm not worried. He's a fool and a coward, and I am armed. I'm his nightmare, a Second Amendment liberal.

Either way, he's obviously my #1 fan.

Anyway, and because this is a public forum where anybody is free to jump in and comment -- as long, of course, that it's within the policies that Google and Mr. Degan have set forth -- I'm still curious about what Jesus said about himself. What did the King of the Jews say that's so important for Dave Dubya to recite to you? I told you two posts ago that I knew lots of things that he supposedly said, but I asked you to be more specific.

You didn't answer me then, either. Why Chuck? Why won't you answer me?

Chuck Morre: "As a fellow family man, I'm sure you understand."

No, Chuck, I don't -- primarily because I haven't a clue what you mean by "family man". Secondly, whether I fit your definition of "family man" or not, I can't tell you that I do understand why you demand that I "butt out".

Is Dave on to something? Do you have gay fantasies about him? Is that why you want me to butt out? ;-)

Hmm...you're making me wonder Chuck. Did Jesus say he was gay? I don't recall this being mentioned, but it's entirely possible. Wouldn't you say?

 
At 3:57 PM, Blogger Dave Dubya said...

JG,

Just because Jesus associated with men, didn't marry, and never spoke ill of gays doesn't mean he was gay. Not that there's anything wrong with that. :-)

I seem to be living in Chuck's head so much, he's trying to track me down. I have to wonder how, and how often, he thinks about me.

Paul Ryan’s momentary lapse into compassion.

“But as I spent more time listening, and really learning the root causes of poverty, I realized I was wrong. ‘Takers’ wasn’t how to refer to a single mom stuck in a poverty trap, just trying to take care of her family. Most people don’t want to be dependent. And to label a whole group of Americans that way was wrong. I shouldn’t castigate a large group of Americans to make a point.”

After a quick dip into his cult savior’s “morality of capitalism”, in their bible of greed, Ayn Rand’s Atlas Shrugged, he should be back to his old self.

I’m sure Chuck can straighten him out. He’s the expert on the “takers”, amirite?

Dave Dubya: "I seem to be living in Chuck's head so much, he's trying to track me down."

It would seem so. He's even gone so far as to give you a middle name...and call you by your -- supposedly -- given first name. Yeah, the "family man" is making a great effort to find you.

As for your "surname", the ignorance he portrays is more bewildering than the irony.


"I have to wonder how, and how often, he thinks about me."

No, you probably wouldn't want to know. ;-) It is apparent that he's obsessed with you. My question, though, is he a closet-gay...or a closet-socialist? LOL

Not that there's anything wrong with that... :-)

Whether Chuck is aroused by being intellectually dominated, or perhaps by his thoughts of how big my hands are, he must be an emotional basket case. His primitive amygdala has him torn between "Fight or flight" or "attraction/repulsion".

Dave Dubya: "Republicans are so repressed. I almost pity them."

They are definitely repressed -- in thought and understanding. But I'd never go so far as admitting I feel pity for them. It's difficult to extend compassion to those who willingly choose ignorance, egoism, hatred and self-righteousness over enlightenment, selflessness and humility, forgiveness and sympathy, and justice to those who are oppressed, exploited and persecuted.

But it's the cross I bear, and I'm working on it. Maybe one day I'll be able to feel that same empathy that you do.

Should I give thanks and sing praises to Allah, Yahweh, or Jesus?! If this were the secret all along, maybe you'd consider moving in with your Texas relatives? ;-) This could be a true win-win proposition. I say "could", because it's possible they wouldn't want you.

Chuck Morre: "Thomas Jefferson owned slaves, why guard him JG?"

Considering that slavery was a cultural norm in the late 18th century, and Jefferson was not unlike many well-to-do landowners of his day, I hesitate to throw the “baby out with the bathwater”. Since Jefferson exemplified the best-of-the-best of our country’s founders, there’s plenty to be guardian over.

Once again, you’re proving to be the premier deflector provocateur. What rule is that?

By the way, how come you never answer my questions – in particular those I’ve posed regarding corporate personhood? Is it ignorance of the subject, or is it because, in your heart, you know I’m right?

Self-deception is the cruelest form of rationalization. It eats at the soul until none is left. Think about this as you revel in your savior’s celebratory rising from death tomorrow morning.
