Let's do a "ROVE", and destroy Reagan legacy chimera.

Attack Reagan bromides and assumptions. Romney will be reeling. He aint no philosopher. He is the worst spokesman for the rich. He sounds self serving.

We need to go right to the heart of their necromancy, and Exorcise the beast. It's all they have. Make Reagan a liberal, while we are at it. And make Romney simply Reagan's handmaiden. A script kiddie. Reagan has more to do with why we are in the fix we find ourselves, than most other forces. Say it loud. Make Reaganomics shameful. And most certainly, SO thirty years ago.


Those affectations that allude to your concern for the comfort of others before self. They also function as establishing gender and social roles.

Watching Bonobo's interact, it is easy to see the parallels. And to understand that it is ritualized greeting habits, used to allow you to believe you know proper behavior. Almost without fail, ingratiating you to your focus.

Generally, everyone believes they are "polite". And yet, to espouse deprivation, and hardship for all those struggling, seems in hypocritical conflict with manners. How can those that just jettisoned spittle degrading all those assumed below themselves, hope to be taken serious, when they "act" compassionate towards others? Add to this, when interviewing neighbors of mass murderers and sociopaths, they inevitably mention their perfect manners.

Manners can be mangled, as evidenced by this fool edumacating us while standing up for those economically disadvantaged.

Further, religion and particularly politics excuses us from showing manners to some outgroups. Gays, foreigners, single mothers, Feminists, Minorities, unfortunates, all can be stigmatized, to ENFORCE the advantages of polite society. All the while claiming a morally superior stance.

My interest is in asking how beholden are we to acknowledge the etiquette of homophobes, bigots, racists, sexists, xenophobes, or generally anyone who's exclusion of untouchables from polite society is witnessed elsewhere? Should their claims of religious superiority, or overall moral superiority be challenged? Should their hypocrisy be shamed? And under what circumstances?

I find myself running empty on goodwill towards the haters. Nor any desire to engage them in constructive debate. I am not talking about oldline conservatives, but the newfangled neocons, strict constitutionalists and neuvoriche. I feel like socially punishing them. Shaming them in their hypocrisy and inhumanity.

MANNERS are incompatible with calvinist hate. How do we revamp manners to punish those that undercut society? How can we make inhumanity something akin to welfare queens, or deadbeat dads? And why are shitheads allowed to cluck cluck? how do we stigmatize teafreak insistance on individuality, at the expense of the commons, and upward mobility?

To those who refuse to admit Zimmerman was profiling.

No, I am not only talking about Trayvon being black, imagine Trayvonica is walking home after getting candy and soda. And a strange man follows her. Chases on foot and confronts. Ludicrous? Why?

Why do we allow a girl to fight for her life against a stalker, and not a boy? Would we assume that trayvonica was the aggressor, in the absence of another eyewitness? Would we assume Trayvonica will just grow up to be a thug?

About Zimmy's skull.

That pic is enough, that we should NOT act like Zimmy apologists and deny any evidence. The REAL question is, when a man carrying a gun, and telling the police you are a criminal chases you down, in opposition to instructions by police, then confronts you, interrogates you and refuses to explain why he is chasing you, when the hell are you justified in standing your ground?

And when said vigilante's gun flashes as he reaches towards it, ostensibly to use cellphone, are you justified in beating his fake cop ass?

There is no utility in kneejerk dismissing as conspiracy, a clear shot of Zimmy's slightly bloody head. It certainly does not corroborate Zimmy's dad's STORY about Zimmy being a second or two away from lifelong diapers. Thus, the STORY that T was covering Z's mouth AND nose with both hands. This ludicrous story should be skewered.

PLEASE dont do head in the sand, like the right wing vigilante gun nuts. We are better than that.

Simple question, what would a significant Obama mandate act like? How would it be accepted by GOP?

How magnanimous would Romney be? How fervent would the calls for calm be? Would the Nugent's be tamped down? Would calls for second amendment remedies ramp up? A play by the Oathkeepers?

When Obama goes off in earnest against stuffed shirt, the lack of gravitas and depth will be evident, likely causing even more lack of trust from wingers.

What would the jig being up for fascists do to them?

Joke: What is the difference between Ann Romney, and the Welfare Queens the Republicans despise?

Answer: A rich ass husband. Funny, and not funny.

The reason why Z is charged with murder two is

If it can be proved, that it is T begging for his life, either on 911, or by witness and it went on for some time, Z killed T in revenge, for beating his stupid ass.

All that has to be proved is that Trayvon begged for his life. Begging, proves that T was no longer a threat.

Simple as that.

T had a perfect right to drop Z and even kill him, if that one punch did it. As Z had confronted him, after glaring at him from his truck and being made by T, even asking if he was following. Then pursuing on foot. Especially then reaching for his pocket.

I most certainly would have.

The true meaning of Good Friday.

The crucifixion of Jesus, whether literal or figurative, was a racial lynching. For being uppity. It was illegitimate capital punishment. It was terrorism, in the interest of tamping down civil rights. It was the thwarting of increasing womens prerogatives. It was the threatening of all that would entertain joining the jihad. Just like they now do occupy. It was the ridding of the 99% of their heroes, before they understood the power of martyrdom. It was the enforcement of the status quo, the power of the state over the individual. It was the empowering of false, hateful religion, to bolster the reach, and authority of the elite.

What makes Jesus so enthralling is, all that power could not cow him, as he was beyond fear. Perhaps not pain, but dread. No wonder they had to annex Christianity. It IS DANGEROUS to power.

The Reagan Project. Outsourcing.

So when corporations outsource to China, India, Canada, Mexico, or anywhere else, they are transferring this wealth creation out of our country. The result is higher unemployment, lower tax revenues, larger budget deficits, and more borrowing from the countries to whom we have outsourced the work. In fact this borrowing then creates even more of a drain on our economy as the debt keeps increasing and is costly to service. Wall Street may be happy as the rich get richer, but Main Street suffers as the middle class become poorer and the poor go on welfare. As this spirals down into more debt the deficit grows even larger.

The CEO’s may have increased their bottom line a few pennies per share by sending those customer service jobs to India, but once thriving communities in the US are now devastated as they struggle with joblessness and foreclosures. Cities and states have reduced tax revenues and cannot afford the necessary services to maintain their communities. Although it now gives corporations lower cost products by having them manufactured in China, we are now seeing a massive drain on the wealth of our own country. In addition corporate taxes are not paid on profits generated overseas. All of those dollars stay offshore and circulate in the foreign economies. While the US suffers this drain on its wealth, the coffers grow ever larger overseas. It is like trying to fill a bucket with a huge hole in the bottom. “There’s a hole in the bucket dear Liza!”



Only a small handful of people have looked objectively at the issue. These few and the large number of Americans whose careers have been destroyed by outsourcing have a different view of outsourcing's impact. But so far there has been no debate, just a shouting down of skeptics as "protectionists."

Now comes an important new book, Outsourcing America, published by the American Management Association. The authors, two brothers, Ron and Anil Hira, are experts on the subject. One is a professor at the Rochester Institute of Technology, and the other is professor at Simon Fraser University.

The authors note that despite the enormity of the stakes for all Americans, a state of denial exists among policymakers and outsourcing's corporate champions about the adverse effects on the US. The Hira brothers succeed in their task of interjecting harsh reality where delusion has ruled.

In what might be an underestimate, a University of California study concludes that 14 million white-collar jobs are vulnerable to being outsourced offshore. These are not only call-center operators, customer service and back-office jobs, but also information technology, accounting, architecture, advanced engineering design, news reporting, stock analysis, and medical and legal services. The authors note that these are the jobs of the American Dream, the jobs of upward mobility that generate the bulk of the tax revenues that fund our education, health, infrastructure, and social security systems.



We need to accumulate the evidence. Reagan bromides about trickle down, and floating boats notwithstanding, we have scant scholarly refutation to fearmongering of protectionism, or anything else but right wing memes.

Sure Clinton didnt help, but the conventional wisDUM was far too pervasive. Show what you gotz.

We need talking point quick challenges. Sure Reagan ruined the USA. But how?

Rethugs despise our mamby pamby definition of sexual harrassment for it's being subject to

the thinking of the victim. Thus, if you FEEL victimized, or threatened, you ARE.

Enter STAND YOUR GROUND. Now, rethugs want being ASKEERED for your life, subject only to the fear capacity of said coward. No tangible criteria save aforementioned fear.

And the most revealing feature of rabid Rethug fear of an ass kicking is, they expect everyone they piss off enough to fight them, to follow thru with their slaying by hand. So, anyone they anger that far likely needs killing.

Packing heat means never having to answer for your mouth.
