Pass some crap and go home for Christmas

I can't believe bonehead Boehner, a bondwoman to Texas oil corporation. Why he tacked on the Tar Sands Oil pipeline to the spending bill while 1 out of 2 Americans are in poverty. Michelle Bachman got her two cents in blocking ban on incandescent light bulbs in this bill. She needed to look useful like she did something great but it only means people using old bulbs will be using more energy. That means burn more carbon fuels but then republicans don't care about the planet or peoples health. It's clear because everyone running for the president says they are going to repeal the health care bill. Boehner made investments into health care and made millions because of his insider trading. Newt also made millions over the last ten years in health care. He left running that investment but still getting the big bucks, the profits for people paying high prices for health care. Republicans want high priced health care because they are investing in those corporations. Look at it this way, every pill you take is tied to pennies going into the pockets of lawmakers. Every x-ray you get or test you get profit goes to lawmakers and the inside investments they made. Anyone else in the country would go to jail doing what they do. It's legal for them because they wrote the law excluding them from insider trading.

1 out of 2 people in the United States is in the poverty range. That's 50% of the population of the country. Why don't republican care about those votes because they depend on high school grads to vote for them. Educated people don't vote for them because they know better unless they are rich and calling in favors. When I hear the people in Iowa say they have moral and are conservative I really have to laugh but it makes me angry how easily swayed those simple minds are. They care more about religion like it's a real science. They don't believe in science as the rivers over flow and ask why it's happening. Their answer to that is it's God's wrath on the sinners. No it's global warming from to much Carbon Dioxide and other green house gases.

What amazes me is the basic poor republican voter will shoot themselves in the foot because of the people they vote for. They still think trickle down economics works and if you give the rich tax breaks and they get a token tax break they think they are doing great. Wealthy starts at 800 million dollars or at least it did back in 1980, I'm sure that value has gone up since then. The wealthy don't measure wealth in dollars but units of wealth. One unit is 400 million dollars and you can live comfortably with two units. That is an old stat from 1980. So when you get a check for $250 dollars for your big tax break while the wealthy are depositing hundreds of millions of dollars into their banks, you better ask yourself if bankrupting the country so you can get a $250 dollar check by voting for someone that is giving his friends hundreds of millions of dollars is worth it all.

So what is a constrictive? For the person that's church going and has no knowledge of the world, or the small business owner that might make less then a couple hundred thousand a year, your not even in the playing field with the big boys. What gets me is the pandering that goes on and people say they believe what they are saying. This last tax break for people making under $250,000 which also includes the lawmakers the ones doing insider trading and stashing their cash on some island so they don't pay taxes on the full amount of what they made that year just the amount the tax payers paid them.

When republicans bring up social security and say it's going to be bankrupt in three or four decade, that is if you stop paying into it right now and keep paying money out to people then yes it would. Social Security pays people from the interest made on the money you paid into the trust found. Republicans can't stand it that their that much money they can't get their hands on. They will say, "Lets invest it in the stock market." Well you seen how honest the people at the stock market are. Hedge funds were beating companies and stocks are going to fail while selling them to you saying, "trust us, it's a deal. You can't loose." But when you loose they say that's the stock market, that's the way it goes. Your left with empty pocket looking for change to buy your next meal.

So what is a conservative? They are the ones sending your jobs over seas and will smile as they lay you off. Then tell you in a one company town they your smart, you'll land on your feet. That is after you loose your house because the banks sold you an imposable loan, telling you that you can get a new loan in a couple years and refinance you home so the interest rate will come down them. You buy that up because the banker wouldn't lie to you, would he. He's honest and through in some Evangelical catch phases so he must be a moral person just like Newt. Newt who changes wives as fast as he changes religions. Do you think what he does might have an alternative motive? Is he just doing it for fun and profit? Maybe just profit.

Conservatives are high on anal vapors. When Boehner says he's going to put in a pile line project that's going to help one corporation in Texas doesn't that make you wonder who is leading him around by the hog ring. I'm sure he's got a stock option going with people like the Koch brothers and Koch industries who make a $110 billion dollars a year. You can buys a lot of politicians with that kind of money. You can also write your own laws and push them on law makes to pass too. ALEC seems to do that very well. They were the ones that are going after the unions and collective bargaining to break unions to drive down wages even further.

Think about it, it's just like slavery but you get to go home between the time you work.

The local news had a story about a company on the delta that makes boat cover. The guy said he can't make them fast enough. It's boat covers not for poor peoples boats that's for sure. He wanted them to work hard for $10 dollars an hour. Yet he's making money hand over fist. He can't put in enough hours and is expanding. Seeing that he's the only one there besides his wife, I take it he's not very easy to get along with, seeing him throw bolts of cloth across the table.

NASA scientist say if the Tar Sands pipeline goes in that's it for trying to control climate change. Like George Bush said, "Climate change is good, you can build houses in winter time in the Midwest." Only republican deny the accident in front of them and say it's not happening because dollar signs are blinding them.

350 parts per million was the measurement of the max carbon dioxide could get to and only raise the global temperature 2 degrees. Right now it's at 380+ parts per million of carbon dioxide. Some say that's the point of no return. Countries are fighting about shipping routes in the arctic. They are planning for ice free arctic. An ice free arctic will cause a faster warming of the planet. Right now while they are putting treaties off it's up 3 1/2 degrees. That causes bigger storms and more snow because the oceans put more moisture in the air which blows over land and comes down. Any republican that doesn't believe in global warming shouldn't get any disaster relief.

I don't understand why people after seeing what Bush, Chaney and Reagan did to the country they would still vote for the same people. Is that insane? Why would you vote for someone with a God complex, that thinks or knows everything he's done was right. Oh, that's right God told him. God told him to take over the world.
