The Average “Republican American”

republican americanThe average “Republican American” is a Republican because that Party feeds a base wish to feel strong and independent.
It assures its members that everything they have; they have because of themselves alone.
It assures them that they are worthy of self worship.
It assures them that the art and the craft and the skill is not in the creation of a thing but in the paying for it.
It assures them that they have a support network of like-minded loonies who will defend their right to eat until they spew digested food all over the room while everyone else is relegated to eating that spewed food to survive.
They don’t recognize the concept of Privilege.
“Obviously the poor and the Black don’t get any and since I deserve everything I have; I don’t get any either; therefore; Privilege doesn’t exist here.

No privilege; no advantage.
No advantage; no foul; everyone plays by the same rules; to be determined situationally by those with the most power; to be determined monetarily by those with the most education; to be…
“go ahead and pick up the refrain the next time it comes around on the Gee-tar.”

I’m your Republican neighbor; don’t you murder me
I’m gonna’ lead you to heaven; just you wait and see.
I’ve got all the money and I’ve got a plan;
You do all the workin’; I’ll just be “The Man”
You do all the workin’; and I will be your friend.

I’m your Republican neighbor and it’s clear to me
You don’t need that healthcare, vacation or mo-ney
I’m your Republican neighbor and what you need instead

old folk singer

What I might look like singing this song if I lost fifty pounds; grew hair; and learned to play a guitar.

Someone who understands you and works you till your dead;
You’re just a beast of burden to beat about the head.

I’m your Republican neighbor; I can see you’re hurt
Just you lay your head down; I’ll cover it with dirt.
I’m your Republican neighbor; no need for you to stress
I’ll keep all the money and be a big success.
I’ll keep all the money and use it to oppress.

Want A Safe Home? Put A Big, Black Man In It.

vingADT; the security corporation with a long history in the home security business has begun a new ad campaign featuring Ving Rhames as the spokesperson and effectively as the symbol of safety in our homes.

I; for one; am happy to see this particular development. I believe it is a positive sign when a big, burly, black man is placed in the position of representing home safety rather than the older stereotypical associations of large black men as a threat to our safety.

It isn’t the end all and be all of racial healing. It isn’t going to get anyone a better chance at an education or decent job by itself.

It is; I think; a sign. A sign that it has become; “Ok” to use a black man to be synonymous with white people being safe in their homes. Actually I am just a bit more excited about this than I let on. It’s a pretty big deal. It shows; better than anything I have seen yet that America’s attitudes are changing.

Anybody want to give these Motherfucking Murderers a Motherfucking AWARD?????

I am sick of this shit. I will wait for my apology and you know who the Fuck you are.

You called me a RACIST 

You called me a RACIST because I objected to giving Cops Awards.

You called me a RACIST because I said I don’t like, trust, or co-operate with COPS.

Ferguson Police Officer Awarded For Meritorious Action

Wilson being awarded

Wilson being awarded

“(Officer Darren) Wilson won a commendation this year after he subdued a man who was found to be involved in a drug transaction, and he was honored in a ceremony in the Town Council chambers”

Man do I have questions about that sentence but for now let’s just pretend that I don’t and that Officer Wilson did a good thing; and was awarded for it.

That seems Ok until you learn “The Rest of the Story”

To The President of the United States

To The President of the United States; The Honorable Barack Hussein Obama

Dear Sir,

I would like to discuss the issue of the Keystone Pipeline with you.

It is a terrible feeling of near helplessness that overtakes me when I consider the progress of this soul-destroying project and the legislation (recently passed) that allows it.

It seems there is no end to the degradation and humiliation that the US Government is willing to allow, to the indigenous peoples of this land.

Running Antelope Sioux Warrior

Running Antelope
Sioux Warrior

When; in the 21st century; it becomes necessary for a nation of indigenous people to state their intention to defend to their literal death; their land from the encroachment of Capitalist interests; after that indigenous nation has been the victim of such interference and genocide over the course of the history of this country; it seems to me that the people of these United States need; for the sake of human decency; and for the sake of their own ability to steer their own future and not become victims themselves (if self-interest is the only motivator that will work); to stand up and scream “NO!”; “STOP!” “This is not who we want to be anymore.”

We claim to care about the people of America. There are no more American people than the original inhabitants of this great land. There is no dignity in allowing this terrible crime. There is no way for us to come away with anything but bile in our mouths; the smell of burned flesh in our nostrils; and the guilt of the dead children on our conscience.

Every American should be up in arms about this danger.

Every blogger should be running similar articles; to flood the web with our indignation at the very possibility of this happening.

Everyone should be writing, calling, e-mailing, beating on the doors of their Congressional Representatives; Senators; and you; yourself Mr. President; to express their horror and disgust at the possibility that this destruction might become reality.

What do you think Mr. President?

Are you still shocked by such actions?

I hate feeling helpless. Don’t leave us to helplessly watch the destruction of an honorable people for what amounts to almost zero gain for America.

The only benefactors of this Keystone Pipeline are the huge corporations involved.

Mr. President; Veto this bill

I was recently enlightened to the problem of the South Dakota Child Protection Agency; taking away the children of perfectly good Native-American mothers and adopting them out to wealthy white citizens. Not just one or two kids either. This is a running operation; essentially using these women to breed for the wealthy whites.
Now why do you think; a wealthy, white, resident of South Dakota wish to “Adopt” small Indian children?
To nourish them and give them the advantages of wealth? Hmmm
Not likely.
You know what they say. If it walks like a duck…
Well this time it walks like a big old slave breeding operation.

siouxAnd this “Keystone Pipeline” walks like a crime against the people of The Great Sioux Nation and a sin against humanity and our own dignity.

So President Obama; Veto this bill.

It will be back with the new Congress as Mitch promised.

It must not pass; Sir.

It  must not pass; anymore than we would pass a bill that would cause the destruction of our African-American or Hispanic or Korean communities.

It must not pass because if it does; when it is done; and the long-term effects are understood; the American people will look back upon your Presidency and The Congress with shame and hatred.

A stain upon our honor and a stain of blood upon our map and our nation.

One reason we elected you was the sense that you were a compassionate person who empathized with “We The People”.

Now is not the time to back down or give in to pressure from the murderous corporate masters.

Now is the time for “Bold Progressive Moves”

Veto this bill Mr. President.

Ben Stein?

 

 

 

 

ben steinRemember Ben Stein? The slightly chubby, jokingly snide, host of the show where he pretended to give away his own money if players could defeat him in a trivia challenge. Of course ben is not just a game show host. No; he is also an actor, a former speech writer for Richard Nixon and a Conservative mouthpiece.

Ben has several times in the past; said things that make anyone with human feelings cringe. Living in the Republican bastion of Idaho and living the life of a wealthy Republican investor has certainly insulated him from the real world. Perhaps he believes this is just another fictional script for a bad TV movie. I don’t know and neither does Ben.

I picked a few choice comments he has recently made:
