Here's three almost forgotten words guaranteed to drive the right winger in your life insane...

It's Only Money.

WTF is the matter with some white people???

White people have this idea that they fought a war with Mexico and won and then ran all the Mexicans over the border and took their land. This is why they act like everyone with brown skin MUST have come from over the border, don't belong here and need to be deported "back home".

I know seventh+ generation Latinos who can trace their ancestry back to when their great great great whatever who voted in the election of 1849 to make California a state and became instant citizens as a result.

White people told peasants that they would be free and then made them their servants.

If we were HONEST as a country, we would be more like Canada. They had England and France and we have England and Spain. (And German, and Irish, and Italian,....etc.)

The PROBLEM is we have a BIG swath of dumbasses in this country who call themselves "American" and don't even KNOW their ancestry. All they know is their great granddad's shootin' iron is over the mantelpiece and they like to think he used it against "injuns" when he used it to hunt squirrels. (A source of protein not exactly known to be "brain food")

Wanna know the truth?

The whole "Benghazi Thing" is a joke....

According to the Right Wing it went down like this:

1: Obama kills Osama bin Laden and then struts all over Washington DC claiming he won the war on terror and terrorism was no longer an issue.

2: One of our embassies gets attacked by terrorists.

3: The Administration, having previously claimed the war on terror was over and there were no more terrorists refuses to call this terrorist attack a terrorist attack because that undermines their prior claim that there were no more terrorists because Obama already won the war on terror when he killed Osama bin Laden.

The same people who believe this also believe the government is using mind control drugs.



Of which THEY are immune, of course.

I tell Right Wingers that Reagan believed in VOLUNTARY wealth redistribution....

That was the entire concept behind "trickle down". That money was supposed to go into PAYROLL.

Then I tell them the rich BETRAYED Reagan and kept the money for themselves.

Gotz to use simple words for simple minds.

I tell these types that the rich betrayed Reagan....

I say Reagan believed in VOLUNTARY income redistribution but that's turned out to be like "self regulating".

The rich claimed they WANTED to increase wages for their workers and hire more people but couldn't afford it because their taxes were too high. The rich were supposed to "trickle down" the wealth they were getting from Reagan but they pocketed it instead.

That hits conservatives in a new way where their worship of the rich is pitted against their love of all things Reagan.

Guess which they pick?

One of the things I say about electing a President....

Republicans vote for a LEADER that they can FOLLOW. Also a BOSS they expect US to OBEY. (They then accuse us of being disloyal to the thug.)

Democrats vote like it's for a Union Steward and watch them like a hawk for signs they've been sold out. (Often going into total crying jags at the slightest hint that it's happening AGAIN!!! WAAAAAAAHHHHH!!!!!)

Stop calling it "The Free Market" because that's Right Wing spin

"Freedom" sounds good, doesn't it? Saying you are into "freedom" makes you sound good too.

The "Free Markets" sounds like a good thing too.

But ask yourself, what EXACTLY is the "Free Market" free of?

Regulations, or in other words - LAWS.

From now on, when someone says they support "The Free Market" correct them by saying they support "A Lawless Market".

Suddenly, they don't sound like such a "good guy" anymore. You've taken away their time tested, focus group talking point and white cowboy hat and made them the bad guy.

I hope this idea spreads far and wide.
