Freepers, Birthers, Morons of all stripe, You didn't get mad...
You didn't get mad when the Supreme Court stopped a legal recount and appointed a President.

You didn't get mad when Cheney allowed Energy company officials to dictate energy policy.

You didn't get mad when a covert CIA operative got outed.

You didn't get mad when the Patriot Act got passed.

You didn't get mad when we illegally invaded a country that posed no threat to us.

You didn't get mad when we spent over 600 billion(and counting) on said illegal war.

You didn't get mad when over 10 billion dollars just disappeared in Iraq.

You didn't get mad when you saw the Abu Grahib photos.

You didn't get mad when you found out we were torturing people.

You didn't get mad when the government was illegally wiretapping Americans.

You didn't get mad when we didn't catch Bin Laden.

You didn't get mad when you saw the horrible conditions at Walter Reed.

You didn't get mad when we let a major US city drown.

You didn't get mad when the deficit hit the trillion dollar mark.

You finally got mad when.. when... wait for it... when the government decided that people in America deserved the right to see a doctor if they are sick. Yes, illegal wars, lies, corruption, torture, stealing your tax dollars to make the rich richer, are all ok with you but helping other Americans... well fuck that. That about right? You know it is.

You people have all lost your fucking minds. You are selfish, greedy, obnoxious, narcissistic, and frankly... stupid. Your pathetic little misspelled protest signs are embarrassing. Maybe you ought to find the smart person in your midst and let them make up all the signs, cause man, you look like a bunch of idiots. Also you're ugly and your mother dresses you funny.

17. Googol plex!!
Guggul is a herb from india.

Close, though.

:D


The googolplex is what I call the local multi-screen movie theater.

However, I live in a town so little there is no movie theater.

The nearest town 20 miles away has a "monoplex" or an "unoplex".


One screen.

:rofl:

3. When people line up by the thousands for free health care in Los Angeles
You know we have reached third-world status. These people deserve better than to resort to chattel status. We have hit the moral and ethical wall on this one. But you know the Freepers and Birthers and Teabaggers will have something to say about how these people are lazy or whatever.

Yeah, everyone who lost their job recently and now find themselves without health care, or even a home, is just lazy and brought this upon themselves. GAWD I really hate these idiots. Forgive me, I can't keep from hating them.

9. Good post, but I think the underlying reason they are mad is that a Black person is in charge
They are scared that their "privileged" way of life is coming to an end, and it is.

54. Does that mean I'm privileged because I'm white?
Was I supposed to get a check or something? Some kind free ride or "white bonus"?

I think my mom forgot to sign me up for something back when I was born.

Here's is something for you to read that might help you understand that check, ride, "bonus", or whatever you want to call it. If you still want to talk after taking the information in and thinking about it for a bit, get back to me.

148. Interesting how race-oriented that was
1, 6, 7, 8, 10, 11, 12, etc., only matter to people who think skin color is important.

15 is just false. Growing up in a predominantly poor Mexican neighborhood I was attacked for my race. My neighbor's white kid was recently attacked for her race by a black kid in grade school.

My kids know about racism and slavery and how it is/was wrong. Now they're going to have to learn that there is still a lot of racism around where I live, and it's blacks hating whites for their color.

149. The "white privilege" BS needs to stop
I grew up poor, as in "we don't have enough money for food" poor exacerbated by a drunk, abusive drug-addled step father who couldn't keep a job. Did you know you can trade food stamps for booze?

But I never turned to drugs, crime or blaming my situation on anybody but my family. I kept my nose down, graduated high school, got the hell out and worked hard ever since.

Sorry, nobody ever gave me a free ride or special privilege to where I am now in the middle class. And I did it with affirmative-action college admissions and "equal opportunity" employment working against me. Companies, especially those looking for government contracts, need to show "diversity" if they want the job.

You want to talk "privilege," talk to my boss's boss. He was raised upper-middle class, free ride to a good college, white collar all the way.

And he's black.

At least that's what the racists would see first and foremost. All I see is a boss who knows his stuff so he gets my respect.

114. Hmmmm...a black Lutheran street minister summed it up well
when he spoke at a community event my sweetie and I attended. He said that the best way to understand the situation white males in this society enjoy compared to what women and all minorities experience is this,

"White men have the wind at their backs."

Now as someone who ran the 440 in high school this explanation hit home. Typically the 440 is one full lap around the track at a full out sprint. Imagine running with a pack of people all doing their best. As you hit the last curve heading to the home stretch, you're winded, your lungs are burning, your legs feel like lead but you're determined to finish strong. In a fair race everyone experiences the same conditions at that turn. In our culture if you're a white male the wind is behind you, helping push you to the finish. Everyone else makes that turn and has the wind hit them hard in the face pushing against them, impeding their efforts to finish strong.

That's what all us white guys get in this society. Not a "check", not a "free ride", not a "white bonus", just an extra push towards the finish while everybody gets a bit of an impedance. Sorry if that's a problem for you to wrap your mind around.

Deal with it.

117. yes, you are privileged because you are white
a person of color with your exact training, education, background, skills, etc. is less likely than you to "get the job."

if you're a boy, then you're doubly privileged.

131. Have you never been followed around the store by a suspicious clerk
who didn't like the way you look?

Have you never had a job app shitcanned because of the spelling of your name?

Were you never ignored by the teacher when you raised your hand, knowing you knew the answer?

Have you never been gently guided to look for housing in a particular part of town - usually bounded by 'Martin Luther King Drive'?

Then you WERE signed up when you were born.

99. Bill Clinton gave a speech to Netroots convention last night ...
... and explained it beautifully (paraphrasing): the world is changing, and people who are a/going to lose something in the change or b/ can't see how the change will ultimately benefit them, will resist it with all their might. And since the far-right has nothing left with which to work, they are playing on that uncertainty and resorting to fear and hate mongering to try to stop the change that's already happen(ed)(ing).

It was live on CSPAN, hope they do a replay over the weekend.

44. Thank you for articulating what I have been thinking and
trying to figure out how to say. I agree with you on this. For eight years under the B*sh regime I restrained myself, held my temper, chose a peaceful path, as difficult as it was and as angry as I was about all of the things you mentioned above and more. I am outraged by the behavior of those people "protesting" health care reform when they did nothing about, much less protest against the criminal and immoral acts committed by B*shCo.

Not only are they selfish, greedy, obnoxious, narcissistic, and stupid, but they're complete fucking tools as well. The corporate propogandists have convinced them to go out and protest against their own best interests. They can't wrap their little brains around the fact that the dreded librals and their government, much less a black president, is actually trying to do something that will benefit us all.

51. Fantastic! I likey!
And to all those freepers, birthers and morons of all stripes who claim to be a Christian: grab out your bibles and read Luke 10:27. Memorize it. Especially the part about loving your neighbour. True, Jesus himself didn't say it but this was an "expert in the law" testing him and asking him what he needs to do to inherit eternal life... regrettably I don't see much of the neighbourly stuff going on with thie freeper and birther bile.

52. They're not just mad
They're frothing at the mouth. There should be net squads at the town hall meetings to capture these loons and get them into treatment. Involuntary commitment might just be the remedy for Beck and Limbaugh followers.

55. Yes but ...while all of this is true
and it was an excellent post if I don't say so myself
it is in a way 'singing to the choir'.

What really needed, is for us to mobilize.

If you truly want to DO something, Please check out this thread on DU. It was posted in the morning and hasn't got the notice it should have.

"Mad as Hell Doctors" Embark on Cross Country Care-A-Van to Demand Single-Payer from Congress"

Thanks everyone!

58. KICK AND FUCKING RECOMMENDED!!!!
I will add the Blue Dogs to this list...

They said nothing when George 'Dumbya' Bush invaded an unarmed, sovereign nation...
They said nothing when George 'Dumbya' Bush and the Repukes borrowed from COMMUNIST CHINA to give $1.7 trillion in tax breaks to the rich and their wealthy corporate cronies...
They said nothing when George 'Dumbya' Bush and the Repukes went on spending sprees...

They did absolutely NOTHING to hold George Bush and his evil cronies accountable for all the crimes against humanity that were committed.

And now, suddenly--wait for it--the Blue Dog DemoCRAPS want to hold Obama accountable for spending, the deficit, the debt, the illegal wars, the recession, the collapse of the housing market??!?! Say what?!?!?!??!

Yes, illegal wars, lies, corruption, torture, stealing your tax dollars to make the rich richer, are all ok with you but helping other Americans... well fuck that. That about right? You know it is.

Same thugs who attacked civil rights and anti war activists in the sixties. Part racism and a lot of hatred from people who see themselves as victims and are looking for someone to blame for their forlorn existence. The big money powers have always been able to harness this negative energy. These people live in fear and I don't envy them.

I agree with your basic premise, that it's twisted this particular issue is what is bringing protesters from the right out in droves, but unless i am seriously mistaken I don't see anything in the proposed health care reform bills that will give me the right to see a doctor.

116. That's more evidence of the extraordinary work of the right wing PR firms.
And adds to my anger at the conservative owned mass media that slip in little news-bytes about the town hall shout-downs with nary a mention of the far bigger story about the several right wing PR firms that are inflaming people so well that they can be driven to shout down their own best interests.

Pretty amazing, eh?

Instead of spending August talking about the many ways in which the current system of for-profit medical care is broken

and how the Medical Industrial Complex told us they could handle things better back in the 90's when they stomped out the Democrats' last attempt to introduce national health insurance, and have failed miserably to prove their case --

Instead of that we're treated to mass distraction and demonstration of the power of the right wing PR firms to create frenzy and drive it to dangerous levels behind the golly gee, just folks "grass roots" groups that have "always been there"-- dormant, as you note, during the most egregious violations of Republican administrations. Ginned up again and driven to even wilder heights of frenzy now that we have a Democrat in the house.

Look at the power of the dollar-- see what hundreds of millions of right wing cash can do.

They will probably be appeased by being given cheap American flag pins made in Taiwan.

Or some other cheap, inconsequential, useless little trinket that easily impresses these simple folks.

They want NO government programs? Let's take away their Medicare and Social Security.

Do this only to the protesters.

They got spitting red in the face angry when we had the AUDACITY to question our president and his illegal war, or the illegal wiretapping, or illegal torture.... When we protested we were "unamerican" and "nazis". They tried to run us down and silence us. How DARE we question a president for his dictator... oh I'm sorry "decider" like actions while in office. They were furious with all of us.

156. It all made me mad
I am amongst the conservatives to which this rant is directed. A lot of the stuff on the list actually did make me mad, though I'm willing to bet for completely different reasons than anybody else in this topic. However, the only thing that made me more mad than anything in this rant is the undercurrent of elitism and the implication that I'm an idiot, even though I have sound philosophical and logical principles on which my arguments are based. I know it might be hard for someone who feels morally superior - what would happen to your shell hiding reality from you! - but could you listen to them before you write them off kthxbai.

And the retort about my mother made me the maddest. It made me cry. :'-(

158. You didn't get mad volume II.


You didn't get mad when President Nixon conspired to take over the Government, which is High Treason, and got off without blame.

You didn't get mad when the movie makers and unions were called Communists, during the McCarthy hearings.

You didn't get mad when they shot our President, ignored the responsibility of the Dallas School System (responsible for segregation) for having so many hiding spots in it's building along the parade route; and then let the media replace him with the Beatles.

You didn't get mad when President Nixon ran on getting out of the war in Viet Nam, and still hadn't by his second term.

You didn't get mad when Diebold's voting machines were so easy to manipulate they went out of business.

You didn't get mad when the monopolized media called our Noble Peace Prize winning President Jimmy Carter weak, and helped fuel the hostage crisis.

You didn't get mad after 35 years of victimizing young girls, running on the anti-abortion platform and accomplishing nothing.

You didn't get mad when they threw away all your TV sets and gave the frequency to the police.

You didn't get mad when they threw away your right to privacy.

You didn't get mad when they claimed President Lincoln as theirs when they threw out his banking plan and pillaged the South after the Confederate war, and have plunged this country into recessions and depressions because of it.

You didn't get mad when they claimed profits would trickle down, urinated on us all and drove up the deficit spending money on Star Wars.

You didn't get mad when Ronnie took away Medicare for stay at home mothers.

You didn't get mad when they took away the right to equal time for opposing views on Television.

You didn't get mad when one of Bush's other relatives worked in the media and incorrectly reported the Republican's as being ahead in the polls, to influence people only wanting to vote for the winner.

You didn't get mad when the Republican's in power lost two space shuttles, overlooking by overlooking serious problems.

You didn't get mad when they wouldn't admit Marijuana is a well advertised Spanish word that was put in the legal system to persecute illegal aliens fighting to get into this country, and tried to make them all learn English which even after we get 12 years of in High School, the University system thinks we still need more of.

You didn't get mad when they started a war against people trying to care for themselves and created pharmaceutical slavery, with a constant bombardment of drug ads while taking over the food supply and manipulating the chemicals in your body like a science experiment.

You didn't get mad when they called distention against the government unpopular dirty hippie flag burner foolishness, and then turned into anti government protesters themselves.

You didn't get mad when they took over the entire country of Panama, too.

You didn't get mad when the Iran Contra evidence pointed to collusion in Iran.

You didn't get mad when they used the Lord's name in vain.

You didn't get mad when they swift boated Kerry, instead of working on our problems.

You didn't get mad when they replaced people at the EPA interested in preserving the environment including us with people interested in preserving the environment by starting more wars to eliminate more of us.

You didn't get mad when they replaced Mr. Diesel's hemp seed engine fuel with stinking dinosaur slime and encourage us to all get anointed with it.

You didn't get mad when they cut down our trees and told us that the paper Jefferson made himself and wrote the original draft of the Constitution on should be illegal.

Now that they've found that a lack of what Jefferson wrote the first draft of the Constitution on causes Alzheimer's disease, maybe you'll understand why we're all too confused to get mad.

And you probably aren't mad enough that a new weapon by Raytheon called the "Silent Guardian" which can make you feel like you are on fire whenever your are in the microwave's beam right through the side of your American home they've just made obsolete,and never leave a mark on you. Thanks again Raygun Ronnie for all that research money.

164. Health care
What about a non-profit insurance agency whose focus is on maximizing benefits and not profits. Anything the government does will be a disaster. Which government program has succeeded?

We do not live in a democracy, we live in a republic which claims to be a democracy. If we were a democracy, we the people would vote in a health care bill, and we would vote line by line, not as a package deal.

The government is evil, and proves this time and time again by (taking what is not given) increasing taxes, global terrorism, and the largest incarceration rate in the world. Expecting the government to do something good is like expecting the Pope to become jewish.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Incarceration_in_the_Unite...

We talk about fighting evil in the world, what we do not realize is that we are the evil of the world. We are the evil because we sponsor our own government.

Representatives are the greatest evil in world. Hunger for nutrition, and the consumption of poison is the cause of disease.

I dream of a day when a true democracy can exist.

165. Agreed
Totally agree with all these statements. I awoke to the corruption and scandal in our political system during the Bush administration and have been fighting for peace ever since. I work with a media organization now and am investigating the current war. I made a three part segment composed of 6-10 minute installations breaking down who REALLY shapes our foreign policy, the true costs of the war thus far, and Obama's take on the war.

Check them out here:

Thanks for continuing to spread truth and pushing for justice!

You guys rock!
