I want to congratulate the Gang of Six for coming up with a plan I think is balanced … I think we’re in same playing field.” ~~~ President Barack Obama

Well, apparently Obamahood is standing by to sign his name on a Bill that will all but destroy Social Security, Medicare, and Medicaid. This new balanced budget amendment will balance itself on the backs of the poor, the hungry, the sick, the elderly, and the working class — while giving the rich, steady… wait for it… wait for it… another f*cking tax break!
Yes, the so-called “Gang of Six” is made up of both fascist Demoncrats and Rethuglicans, and they have a plan that screws the bottom half — while making the insanely-rich even richer. Is anyone really surprised by this? I’m not surprised; but I am madder than hell, how about you?
One lone voice in the Sin-ate opposed this outrage and stood against it and began a filibuster which was quickly suppressed by Harry Reid — again not surprising. Bernie Sanders was that one voice of sanity that Reid squelched.
The Gang of Six are Rethuglican Con-gressman John Boner, Sin-ators Lamar Alexander and Tom Coburn, the Demoncrats are Con-gressman Mark Udall and Sin-ators Dick Durbin and Harry Reid and suddenly Tom Coburn is catching a case of cold feet, after no doubt hearing from the folks back home. This is a bi-sexual, bi-partisan plan to steal trillions from you and give it to the rich. Of course, Obamahood has been smirking and rubbing his hands together in anticipation of this gigantic rip-off. (And when he tries to defend this outrage, I bet he says he did it because it was the best deal he could get. That should set those deja vu bells a ringing!)
Barry has already gotten rid of Elizabeth Warren for Consumer Financial Protection Bureau as his bankster puppet masters wanted and replaced her with another Wall Street goon, Richard Cordray. Ergo, not a single, nary a one, zip, zilch, zero liberals have been appointed by Barry after riding to the White House on a liberal groundswell. I know the Sheeple are incredibly dumb; but are they dumb enough to elect Barry to a second term? Well, of course, they are! However, there’re fifty million old folks that are just starting to get mad as Hell, and are rising as one to remind our politicians what happens to those who steal from Social Security — a program that has absolutely nothing to do with the deficit! A program which pays for itself with the Social Security taxes and has nothing to do with this debacle, but will no doubt be looted by this gang of pirates — to try to sate the unquenchable desire for even more money by our corpo-rat masters.
Is there anyone up for a Third American Revolution, America? Does anyone know where we can lay our hands on about one hundred guillotines? Oh, and how about getting behind a candidacy of Bernie Sanders for President in 2012? He’s certainly got my vote!

So, how do you climate deniers like the way 2011 is turning out? After 2010 being the hottest year on record comes record tornados, record floods, a heat wave from north to south with parts of the south in three digits for over three weeks, and the north breaking records for heat and humidity. Yes, don’t believe your lying eyes, America. Don’t believe all those learned men, the science experts and all their undeniable truth. Just keep believing what the nice talking heads on Fox Spews say, or that corpo-rat stooge from the oil, gas and coal corpo-rats, or what that government spin master tells you!
It must be hard to be Oklahoma Sinator — and national laughing stock — James Inhofe. James is America’s “Global Warming Denier General. After three weeks of temperatures in the triple digits, I wonder what the folks in Tulsa have to say to James on that subject? Can James and the other hardcore deniers be that stupid? Well, of course, they can; but that’s not to say that the corpo-rat bag men haven’t bought the “Best Congress that money can buy” to deny the obvious truth!
Let’s not forget that a new dust bowl is rearing its ugly head over the Southwest — the last ones, you may recall, were a calling card of the “Great” Depression! Have you seen those dust clouds blacking out part of Arizona, or the huge fires that are burning all across the Southwest and almost burned most of Texas, New Mexico and Arizona to the ground? Global Warming is turning vast new areas into desert with severe droughts which are lasting for years, and all that rain is falling elsewhere making floods. With huge tracts of farm lands being destroyed, what are you going to eat if the crops keep failing?
For years, scientists have told us that as the planet warms up, we can expect changes in whole patterns of weather and in trends like how much moisture the atmosphere will hold. Global warming causes more and heavier snowstorms — that’s what happens when there’s more moisture in the air in the winter. Some places will get dryer, others wetter, and others hotter. In its “2010 State of the Climate Report,” the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration traced some 41 indicators showing that “broad shifts and individual extreme events that have occurred over the past year are indeed consistent with scientists’ predictions of a warmer world.”
You can follow the unbelievers to the hell that they surely have waiting for you and your descendants for decades or centuries to come and face an early death for all, or you can cowboy up and face “An Inconvenient Truth.” A coward dies a thousand deaths; a brave man dies but once!
I see that our military is now threatening our children if we don’t keep them fully funded.
Marine Gen. James “Hoss” Cartwright, vice chairman of the Joint Chiefs, offered a timeline for how deep cuts will affect the force during the next decade, including big reductions in operational budgets, slashing the size of the active-duty force and even scaling back entitlements such as retirement and health care, according to the Military Times newspapers.
The Pentagoons are considering massive changes to the force – including a draft – amid fears that new and far deeper budget cuts are looming just over the horizon, a top military official said Thursday.
You got that right, America; if they shrink in size then they won’t be able to attract enough recruits even though with a much larger all-volunteer military they won’t have to draft to fill it up!
Uh, huh, I’ll let Hoss’s logic sink in for a while… and I’ll repeat that equation again for those of you on drugs.
Truth is, we need less than half of our current military, especially if we stop our current (and committed no more) war crimes for oil. We have more nukes that the entire world combined has, so we could certainly do without half of the navy. Keep all the very new boats and no more than six carrier battle groups – half the the attack and boomer submarines – keep the new – mothball the rest. Do we really need those 60 year-old B-52s? Not really. Do we need over 800 military bases? Not at all. For what we spend on the military for a single week, we could build new schools all over America. New bridges and desperately-needed infrastructure could be built coast-to-coast with another week’s military cost. Etc., etc., etc! The cost of rounding-up Osama could have been the cost of plane tickets, had we promised to give him a fair trial — not over $4 trillion and counting, not to mention the mass murder that we’ve committed, destruction of whole countries and the deaths and wounding of tens of thousands of our children! Did I factor in the destruction of our Constitution and the Bill of Rights?
