Sheltering Corporations from taxes, Not Kids from tornadoes

snip:

A plan to put shelters in schools after seven children died in 2013 from a series of devastating tornadoes has been scrapped because Republican leaders are pushing for corporate tax cuts instead.

Who needs houses falling from the skies when you have tax-cutting, children hating, rethugs already in place on the ground.

One Percent Injustice

Unfortunately this story is not from The Onion:

snip:

A Texas judge agreed with defense attorneys’ claims that a 16-year-old who killed four people while driving drunk had been given whatever he wanted by his wealthy parents and had never learned to accept responsibility for his actions.

Risk Pools Not Understood by Fools

As I approach my 60s I want to thank all the women out there who don't say "I'll never get prostate cancer why should that cost be factored into my insurance." The fact that women have to hear the same argument about maternity care makes me sick.

The dog eat dog, every person for himself society ethic is deeply disturbing.

Just watched a hard hitting...

analysis by NBC news of the many "failings" of the Affordable Care Act, especially the web site.

That news segment reminded me of the penetrating analysis and devotion to detail NBC news dedicated to the run up to the Iraq War.







"Computer glitches" versus...

millions of people with pre-existing conditions.

Computer glitches=fixable.

Pre-existing conditions not being covered by ruthless insurance companies in the past=not fixable.

Hey media, perspective please.

I know, too much to ask.

Stenographer removed from house floor during vote

Before I read the article I thought they talking about Chuck Toad yelling "both sides did it."

My bad.

GOP Suicide Bombers Strategy

As it appears the Teabaggers will allow the country to default they are not playing poker, but chess:

1. Completely wreck the economy using Debt Ceiling as the Neutron Bomb which will kill everybody financially accept the one percent. Yes-it may hurt them but they will be insulated by their millions (billions), and insider information. Oh, and blame the guy in the White House--he's not reasonable you know.

2. Use the case before the Supreme this week to lift the number of candidates a person can contribute to and maybe even the limit on what a person can contribute to each candidate individually. Hi-ho Koch brothers. 2012 will be nothing by comparison.

3. Rev up the crazies so they begin the ground game early in 2014 to both get out the vote, and test out how their voter restrictions work by poll monitoring aggressively. Teabaggers will refine these restrictions once they see the results of the mid-term elections and be prepared for 2016. One of the reasons the Bagger states immediately implemented those restrictive laws was to clear the decks through the Supreme Court now so they will be locked in by 2016. Although right now these restrictions are mainly in red states they are the canaries in the coal mine. If these laws pass muster look for other states to follow suit if they have Rethug governors.

They are playing the long game. Oh, and those current dismal GOP poll numbers, gerrymandering of Rethug districts makes the current GOP poll numbers irrelevant.

Advice to Boner

http://www.politico.com/story/2013/10/gop-activists-john-boehner-government-shutdown-98199.html?hp=l1

snip:

GOP activists to John Boehner: Don’t cave

GOP activists also advise: Titanic Captain full speed ahead, Steve you can't build that fangled puter machine in a garage, hey Coyote ACME products will eventually work, Rmoney the polls lie-that 47 percent thing is no biggee, and the wheel is over-rated.

Boner of Orange, please proceed.






Teabagger Hostage Logic

Let's see. Teabaggers take the Debt Ceiling hostage to force Obama to cave. When asked about their hostage, Teabaggers say crashing the debt ceiling is no big deal so don't worry about it. Soooo, value of the hostage is.........never mind.

WTF

Ryan, the marathon liar, speaks, or maybe pleads

http://www.cnn.com/2013/10/11/politics/shutdown-showdown/index.html?hpt=hp_t1

snip:
Rep. Paul Ryan, the Republican chairman of the House Budget Committee, "said something to the effect of, 'Look, we know you don't like our position, we know you probably don't respect our position, but we're the Republican majority," CNN correspondent John King reported Friday on CNN's "New Day."
"'You're stuck with us for a while, at least through the next election season, so we need to learn to have a conversation with each other.'"

Conversation. Ahh, no. Actually, we despise you. Why? Because rethugs are anti-women, anti-minority, pro-poverty, ass kissing industry sucking, anti-education bunch of Koch brother zombies determined to destroy the country for your masters of the one percent.


So, Eddie Munster return to your still opened House Gym and work on....let's see...your fucking resume and put on the top of it: shut government down, made lives miserable for millions, and was told to go pound sand.
