In reply to Dan Riehl: The Liars World View

July 29, 2012 1 comment

It should not have come as a surprise (indeed it doesn’t) that the wing-nut blogosphere has found their justification for the #Romneyshambles. Pile more hate on the Brits.

Romney supporter and supreme wing-nut goes out of his way to insult the British. Insulting the Brits of course was one of their daily made up beefs against President Obama. Now that does not matter. The Brits are the new enemy.

Little Green Footballs has it covered.

Riehl is an odious thug who celebrated that his brother “died alone, probably of aids for all I know and probably in a San Francisco flop house living on the government’s dime”. He is everything that is wrong about the Republican Party of today.

He wrote:

Get over it, Britain. You’re a second rate, semi-degenerate nation still on the way down because you went too far to the left too long ago for anyone to care about. Don’t expect us to wring our hands over what you losers did. We’re too busy fighting to make sure it doesn’t happen here.

For the last 30 years, including during the Blair years, Britain did precisely what the right in America loved. From deregulation of the banks, ignoring and encouraging tax loopholes for the wealthy, to fighting illegal wars, Britain stood shoulder to shoulder with America. It is precisely because Britain did this the banks went bust in London as well.

Britain has a coalition government doing exactly what Romney promises. Slashing spending at every opportunity because of “deficit reduction”. What has that done to the UK economy? Well it hasn’t been good.

Romney says he wants the same. He claims he wants to cut the deficit. Although even that is a lie. They GOP have wound up their “Tea Party” supporters to care about the deficit but the GOP doesn’t. Romney’s tax cuts for the very richest and his corporate give-aways will send the US economy into deeper deficits for the next 30 years at least. That’s only if growth levels never achieved occur. In reality, under their plan deficits will never disappear but they do not care. Deficits only matter when the President has a D beside his name.

Day one of a Romney Presidency is the day when deficits stop mattering and FreedomWorks stops funding the idiotic Tea Party.

The idiot continues

I really give a flip about what David Cameron thinks. yawn … just be glad we continue to allow you to think you’re actually in the game on most things. Now, get out of our face and try to not screw up the Olympics more than you have already.

Mostly a bunch of feckless wankers if you ask me. Put a Gold Medal on that and aim it at the Queen’s arse.

What the hell does he think Mitt Romney was in London for? To see his horse dancing?

It wasn’t for Mitt to get this photo trending across the net in America?

Mitt supposedly wanted to restore the “Anglo-Saxon” heritage. Even the right-wing of the UK were shocked by that dog whistle.

He was seeing a Conservative Prime Minister. He was being interviewed by the right of centre Daily Telegraph (source of so many wing-nut stories in the USA). He was visiting a friendly.

Mitt’s tour of the UK should not have gone wrong for him. Mitt bombed. To steel a tweet, “Not since WWII has London seen a bombing as thorough as Mitt Romney’s.”

So for that the right will insult Britain, although they will continue to call it England and then expect the UK to stand by them in new wars of choice.

They need to twist their own world view to support their candidate. A candidate they hate and distrust but will spend hundreds of $millions to convince the rest of America to love.

The twist is complete. Every so called principle that the GOP has ever claimed to care about is torn up just so they can vote out the black guy.

The GOP is nothing but a lie, led by a liar for liars.

The Party that complains about “elitists” running America has proposed a candidate who hasn’t worked for 9 years because he was rich enough to spend all of that time running for office and losing.

The party that has spent the last 4 years arguing about “natural born” now puts forward a candidate whose father is listed as Mexican.

What passes for Conservative ideology in the US is nothing but corporate theft and a race to the bottom. For all the $billions invested in to so called Conservative “Think Tanks”, there is no thought there. Just lies. Pure lies built on fear and hate.

Foreign Affairs. Simple, just hate foreigners. Even ones you pretended to care about. Bomb everyone else.
Their Middle East policy was supposedly about “spreading democracy”. Now they claim that the spread of democracy in the Middle East is “spreading jihad”.
Terrorism. They now claim killing the head of Al-Queda was nothing.
Pro life. Well who cared if Mitt profited from abortion? Anyway the so called “Christian” right will just lie the problem away for him.
Economic Policy. Literally nothing but tax cuts, a policy built literally on the back of an envelope. This of course was just a lie for corporate give-aways, claiming continuous tax cuts are the cure all for inflation, deflation, boom, depression, cancer and the common cold. They love em, except when proposed by the President or when they hike taxes on the poor.
Healthcare, their policy created to defeat “Hillarycare” is now socialism.

As for this insult to the Queen:

Put a Gold Medal on that and aim it at the Queen’s arse

the right should go back to worshipping as a God, the rotten corpse of Ronald Wilson Reagan. The worst ever President. A criminal, tax hiking, deficit busting, job killer. Long may he rot in hell.

Sen. Ted Kennedy’s last Democratic National Convention speech, three years ago today:

There will no greater friend to President Obama in the Senate than Ted Kennedy and there lies the root of many of the problems.

To my American cousins, including my pet troll on this blog, be safe tonight.

TVs, cars, homes can be replaced. Family cannot.

Bronze age Mutant Ninja Turtle now wants to abolish US elections.

July 13, 2011 1 comment

Bronze Age Mutant Ninja Turtle - Zero in a half shell

The Tea Party Terrorists really have taken over the GOP.

Not content with showing that they can do “second amendment solutions” or threaten to bring down the World economy because they can, (again), the Bronze age Mutant Ninja Turtle who leads Republicants in the Senate now believes Americans are far too stupid for “gimmicks” such as elections.

The time has come for a balanced budget amendment that forces Washington to balance its books. If these debt negotiations have convinced us of anything, it’s that we can’t leave it to politicians in Washington to make the difficult decisions that they need to get our fiscal house in order. The balanced budget amendment will do that for them. Now is the moment. No more games. No more gimmicks. The Constitution must be amended to keep the government in check. We’ve tried persuasion. We’ve tried negotiations. We’re tried elections. Nothing has worked.

Stupid Peasants. It is all your fault in the eyes of the GOP. How dare you become unemployed, old, ill, poor. It is all your fault because you want to vote for politicians who at least show some concern for your plight.

By the way Mitch, one thing worked. The budgets of President Obama actually reduced the deficit. The budgets of Bill Clinton had a surplus that went in to paying off the national debt. Republicans were the ones who said deficits did not matter. So there is no need to abolish elections. Lunatic Republicans – well that is another story. Elections do work if people do not listen to Rupert Murdoch.

There is one man responsible for the phone hacking scandal in the UK.

July 7, 2011 3 comments

This one man has been able to control the agenda of the political parties of the United Kingdom, the United States and Australia. He has been able to create and destroy politicians.

This one man has wiped out the differences between the political parties. His empire has dictated the response of politicians to the created issues of the day for at least the last 30 years.

The closure of the News of the World is not enough.

Now is the time for politicians to say no to this man

Rupert Murdoch is not a fit and proper man to take over BSkyB, not is he a fit and proper man for politicians to fawn over.

The disgrace of his paper hacking the telephone of a murdered child as well as war widows should be enough to end his stranglehold over politicians from both sides of the hemisphere and the pond.

Human Rights Campaign Endorses President Barack Obama for Reelection

May 29, 2011 1 comment

“President Obama has improved the lives of LGBT Americans more than any President in history,” said HRC President Joe Solmonese.

 

5/26/2011

Washington – The Human Rights Campaign, the nation’s largest lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender civil rights organization, today announced its endorsement of President Barack Obama for reelection. The decision was made based on the President’s demonstrated commitment to LGBT equality and his record of accomplishment, from major legislative victories to critical administrative reforms.

“President Obama has improved the lives of LGBT Americans more than any President in history,” said HRC President Joe Solmonese. “In 2008 we were promised change and profound change is what we got.  More remains to be done and ensuring that President Obama is able to continue the forward momentum toward equality for another term is an absolute priority of the Human Rights Campaign.”

President Obama’s Administration’s record of accomplishment for the LGBT community includes:

  • Pressing for passage and signing legislation to repeal the “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell” law that bans openly lesbian, gay and bisexual servicemembers.
  • Pressing for passage and signing an inclusive hate crimes law – the first federal statute to explicitly protect LGBT individuals.
  • Determining that the administration believes Section 3 of DOMA to be unconstitutional and refusing to defend the discriminatory law in court.
  • Requiring hospitals nationwide to adopt LGBT-inclusive non-discrimination policies regarding visitation.

In addition, the administration’s policies: added gender identity to the equal employment opportunity policy governing all federal jobs; permitted married same-sex couples to use their marriage licenses as evidence of a name change for passports and instituted more reasonable standards for changing a gender marker on passports; allowed the Census Bureau to release data on married same-sex couples; extended a number of benefits to same-sex partners of federal employees possible under existing authority; launched a National HIV/AIDS Strategy and efforts to target populations most at risk; required abstinence-only-until-marriage sex education programs be inclusive of and non-stigmatizing toward LGBT youth; and recognized LGBT families are protected under a host of laws from the Violence Against Women Act to family and medical leave regulations to housing programs.

More information on the President’s LGBT record is available at: www.hrc.org/ObamaEndorsement.

“The records of the other candidates seeking the presidency should be a wake-up call to fair-minded Americans,” said Solmonese. “As the fight for equality moves forward, President Obama is marching with us while the alternatives would stop us in our tracks.”

The Human Rights Campaign is America’s largest civil rights organization working to achieve lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender equality. By inspiring and engaging all Americans, HRC strives to end discrimination against LGBT citizens and realize a nation that achieves fundamental fairness and equality for all.

The Republican war on women proves that the GOP are officially wankers

May 15, 2011 4 comments

Louisiana’s legislature voted unanimously to pass a law called the “Forced Abortion Prevention Sign Act,” which, reinforces the already existing 24-hour waiting period before obtaining an abortion, as well as the requirement that abortion providers give their patients a state published pamphlet filled with the blatantly untrue “facts” about abortion, including the repeatedly debunked myth that it might cause cancer. It also requires medical facilities providing abortions to post a large notice (16 inches by20  inches) stating the following

Notice: Women’s Rights and Pregnancy Resources You can’t be forced.
* It is unlawful for an abortion to be forced on you without your voluntary and informed consent, regardless of your age.
* You and the father. The father of your child is liable to assist in the support of the child, even if he has offered to pay for an abortion.
* You and adoption. The law permits adoptive parents to pay costs of prenatal care, childbirth and newborn care.
* You are not alone. Many public and private agencies are willing to help you to carry your child to term, and to assist after your child’s birth
