Are You That Desperate Rick Perry?

Governor Perry is so desperate he’s pulling a Michelle Bachman.  Now saying that a poor, poor lady with cancer told him that if someone doesn’t get rid of Obamacare that she will surely die.  Somehow Obamacare will kill her.  Now my question is exactly how will Obamacare kill her?  Did it “give” her the cancer she is dying from?  Will it stop her from continuing her current health plan IF she has one?  Will it stop her from getting Medicare or Medicaid if she is getting that?  Of course not!

What is it about the Obama healthcare plan that causes so much angst?  Only a small part of the plan is even enacted and the rest doesn’t come into play until 2014.  So, out of what IS enacted could any of these be killing this poor cancer ridden lady?

Could it be that the plan forces insurance companies to cover recommended preventive services without charging out of pocket costs: Services like mammograms, colonoscopies, immunizations, pre-natal and new baby care are now covered, and insurance companies are prohibited from charging deductibles, co-payments or co-insurance?

Do you think that making insurance companies cover preventative services and the like are killing her, is it stopping her care?  Probably not, so let’s keep looking.

How about this one:

Give her an opportunity to appeal coverage decisions by her insurance company: Consumers are guaranteed the right to appeal insurance company decisions to an independent third party.

Well I am sure as hell if her insurance company says they don’t want to pay for any new treatments her doctor feels will help her cancer, that she would think having the RIGHT to appeal would be very much needed.  In fact it COULD be the one thing that saves her life.  Well, let’s keep looking, since we know for a fact this ain’t it.

The last one, could it be this:

It guarantees enrollees their choice of primary care provider: Consumers have their choice of provider within the plan’s network of doctors, including OB-GYNs and pediatricians, without a referral, as well as out-of-network emergency care.

I doubt very seriously if having her choice of primary care providers is killing her or hurting her in any way.  If she doesn’t want to choose a doctor and would be more comfortable letting her insurance company choose, I am more than sure they would have no problem steering her to her cities equivalent of the Simpson’s Doctor Nick in Springfield.

These are the only things that are going on right now, and nothing that I have seen in the bill coming up would kill her either.  So what the hell is she or is Perry talking about.  What are any of these idiots posing as Republican presidential candidates talking about when screaming they wish to end this bill.

Do they wish to ensure poor autistic children and their families have their healthcare cancelled the minute they get the diagnosis, as that is one of the things that this bill stops.  Or are they hell bent on ensuring that people who don’t have healthcare stay that way?  What is it that these people DO want?  They never tell the alternative, all they say is they want to stop socialized medicine.  Why?  Every one of the top nations in the world with the better life expectancies and beating us on the best places to live has socialized medicine.  Is it killing them?  Maybe we should start thinking about that.

Looking at these candidates and looking at my fellow American’s who are choosing from this gang of clowns, makes Finland, Canada, France, Germany, Sweden and Norway look really good right now.  I think it is time to invest in Rosetta Stone and call it a day.

M O R O N – That Spells Tea Party

Click for video of John Fleming on Chris Jansing

Waaahhh, I only have 400 thousand dollars left over after feeding my family!  Is what Tea Party congressman John Fleming’s cried on Jansing & Co. this morning about Obama’s plan to tax the wealthy as much as the middle class.  Can this idiot be for real?

We have people and a lot of them in this country as well as in the Tea Party who have to “get along” with more like 40 thousand dollars or less a year and he is crying over 400 thousand.  That just pisses me off to the core.  This is the selfish bullshit that we are dealing with in some of the worst economic times ever.

Not only is this Tea Party sucker bitching and moaning about paying more taxes, but he and his cohorts are also saying that we need to cut spending on programs for the poor as well as “raise” taxes on those same poor folks.  Because lord knows those poor suckers who after feeding their families are left with a good 200 dollars for the year as income should be forking out at least a hundred and fifty of that to pay down the deficit consisting mainly of tax cuts for John Fleming and those like his selfish ass.

Poor John Fleming sitting there in his million dollars or better home with his family just trying to survive and here we are trying to create class warfare with his kind by taking more of those 400 thousand dollar crumbs of his is after his businesses brought in 6.3 million dollars for the year.  I guess when he said 400 thousand; he totally forgot the 173 thousand a year he also gets by being a congressman.  But, why split hairs, we know he is just on the cusp of the poor house; and with that kind of money coming in every year, who can remember it all.

The class warfare is that the Republican and Tea Party believes that not only do the rich need to pay less into the society that is putting the money in their pockets, but somehow the poor should be paying more to ensure that they have the means to pay less.  How sick is that?  This has been a long time coming and people better start looking at the writing on the wall before it’s too late.

Even Jansing told the idiot that he position to the majority of America isn’t very sympathetic.  He could care less because his answer was the “class warfare never created one job.”  But, you know what Mr. Fleming, a tax cut for a selfish wealthy bastard never created one job either.  In fact the years that we had all these tax cuts for the rich, the only thing that happened was that we started losing jobs faster than ever.

Because what Fleming doesn’t understand is that he has the whole economic structure backwards.  He believes that those at the top or company owners create jobs when in fact it is those at the bottom who create jobs.  It probably sounds nuts but hear me out.  If I open a lemonade stand, I have to have a demand for my lemonade from the thirsty people looking for a good deal on a cold drink on a hot day.

Neither Mr. Fleming nor his cohorts are cruising the streets looking for lemonade as these people only make up one percent of the population anyway.  It is the hard working people that are my customers.  And any kid with a paper route, lemonade stand or girl scout selling cookies understands that you aren’t going to do any business if you have no customers or your customers have no money to spend.

Mr. Flemings owns a lot of Subway sandwich shops and he isn’t going to tell me that somehow if he has lower taxes and the poor have higher taxes he is going to do some brisk business.  In fact we all know that he will do very poorly.  If the people have no money or less money frivolous spending at sub shops will decline.  Those moneyless people will be better off buying a loaf of bread and a package of baloney at the super market for the price of one sub sandwich.  So, who is fooling who here?

But, you see it doesn’t just stop there.  He and his cohorts want to cut all government programs so that those poor folks won’t even get food stamps to buy their bread and baloney.  But, unfortunately for Mr. Fleming, they won’t have money for food, but they damn sure won’t have money for his stupid submarine sandwich.

I guess we’ll see his stupid face in the soup kitchen line right along with the rest of us.  You can’t build a business with moneyless customers.  And if your customers have no money, you my friend will eventually have no money either.

M O R O N – that spells Tea Party, lawds yes.

Isn’t That The Magic Negro Calling The Negro Dialect Offensive

This is just a little ditty to all of the so called right wing bloggers and pundits who are crying about the Harry Reid debacle.  I am disgusted that any of you have a nerve to sit and act all high and mighty calling for this man to step down all the while chastising the black community for not joining your cries.  It bothers me to no end how the same idiotic people who are calling Harry Reid a racist, are the same folks who just the day before were probably talking about how over sensitive blacks are and how they continuously play the race card.

So it is completely obvious that this is just a silly game to you.  I have a question for you.  When did you start caring one iota for the black community or what bothers us?  Where in the hell were you when Rush Limbaugh was playing that Barack the magic Negro song?  Oh, that’s right you were defending him and telling people to lighten up.  But now you feel that we need to get all up in arms.  When in the hell have any of you ever called for the stepping down of one of your own?  Or better yet, when was the last time any of you took one of those racist right wing pundits you seem to love, to task when they continuously spew racist drivel?  That would be never.

Tell me exactly what it is you find offensive about what Harry Reid said, it can’t be the word Negro.  Wasn’t it the right wing numb nuts who were just yelling a day or so ago that no one should care that the US census added the word Negro back on the list?  Didn’t Glen Beck go so far as to say that African American was a bogus term and Negro more fitting?  And now it is offensive to the Republicans?  What is this, the Twilight Zone?  It is almost as if you all have developed a serious case of multiple personalities.

Were any of you fighting for black people’s right not to be offended by the word Macacca?  In fact, the Confederate flag has been offending blacks for years.  We have been asking for it to be removed from States forever.  I still haven’t seen any Republicans going out of their way to cry on black people’s behalf and help to get that flag thrown out.  Doesn’t this make you even more of the hypocrites that you’re crying that the Democrats or the black community are?  Well if Republican’s have a need to help blacks all of a sudden, can you take a look at the unemployment numbers?

And since when did any of you who are NOT black, have any right to tell any of us who ARE black people, what we should or shouldn’t be offended by.  Haven’t we gone through this before, when you all claimed that we shouldn’t be offended by Barack the magic Negro?  Isn’t the fact that you somehow think that you have the right to chastise the black community for not feeling MORE offended and then running to herald your cause just as racist, if not more?

Whether it was Harry Reid, Sarah Palin or whatever person any of you wish to replace these names with, the outcome would be the same.  They would be chastised and they would apologize and they would move on.  The last time I checked, Joe Wilson with his blatant disrespect is still a sitting Senator.  And of course the Democrats would be calling for their heads, it doesn’t come to anything.  Isn’t this what both of these stupid parties do?  Isn’t this the normal mode of operation, that we have to play this stupid back and forth game.

So what this boils down to is a bunch of people who could care less how the black community feels about anything, are using this feigned, so called degradation of black people as a rally cry to further their own means.  A game which is to help oust the man who has a pivotal role in helping to pass this health care bill which they deathly oppose.  And they wish to use the black community like so many pawns on a chess table to do it.  And the Democrats have no intention of ousting Reid when he is so pivotal right now.

It is too bad that you don’t understand black people or know how pretty much any of us feel, think or see life.  This is because you have no desire to know black people beyond your rightwing shills.  You see, we are not stupid.  We know full well that BOTH parties are full of racists.  They are chock full of racists with their own agendas.  But you see we do know one thing.

And that is that out of both of these racist filled parties; the Republicans have made a blatant decision that they were going to be the party of the angry racist southern white person.  And they continue to make it perfectly clear that they have no desire to encompass the black race within any of their agendas.  As they continue to show nothing but total disdain and disrespect for blacks on a constant basis.

And as far as I am concerned neither of your idiotic parties deserve to have the black community voting for you.  We are out in the cold no matter which party gets into office.  They don’t represent us.  We are continuously told that we need to help ourselves, even if pledges are being made to help every community in this country and even those that aren’t.  So the fact is, if you need a black lackey to do your crying for you; then get Michael Steele.  It seems that he does fine enough for us all.

In case any of you right wing numb nuts were confused about how you portray yourselves to the black community, then just go back and take a look at that Klan rally that you called a Republican national convention.  The brown and black faces were so sparse as to not be seen.  And the rhetoric on the stage was one of complete and utter blatant contempt for minorities.  Now you all want us black people to believe that you have our best interest at heart and are just angry on our behalf for what Harry Reid said.  Give it a rest already.

Obama Did What?

huh

Here is a reply to a person named Stephen Frazier, who seems to think that he is going to give me a nice little list of things Obama has done to stir so much anger from the right.  Well here is where you can see his list and below is my reply to it.  And just to let you know ahead of time I add in when Bush did the same thing or if he did something similar or worse or if it was him altogether in order to show that no Republican, right wingers or tea party folks protested then, so why now.

I am glad you decided to TRY and show me what you think is the problem.  Let’s look at them shall we?

  1. FALSE, Obama did NOT take over the auto industry.  If I give you a loan for your business if it is failing did I take over your business?  If they had borrowed money from the banks (had they not been failing too) would the bank now own the auto industry?  Of course not!  This is just a bunch of bullshit in order to manufacture phony outrage.  When Bush poured all that TARP money into the banks, did he then take over the banks?  Yeah, OK, that was put to rest!
  2. Van Jones was NOT a former communist!  He was associated with a Marxist association which does not mean that he IS a Marxist.  Not to mention there is a DIFFERENCE between a communist, Marxist and socialist, in case you didn’t know, they are NOT interchangeable.  A lot of the Republican Party members are affiliated with KKK members does NOT make them KKK members.  So let’s be real.  Also, what is so whacko about being an environmentalist?  I don’t understand that.  The only think I can see that COULD be a problem is that he signed on to the 911 truth crap.  OK AND!  You have so many of the Republicans that are signed on to the “birther” movement, should they step down?  There is nothing in his past that makes this a reason to protest and call names.
  3. Steve Rattner who WAS the special appointee for the automobile industry was one of the large investors with Cerberus who was over Chrysler.  I still haven’t found anywhere where HE SAID that he knew nothing of the car industry.  But let’s just say he did say that.  Well it doesn’t matter since he has been replaced by Ron Bloom, a former union official.  Does he know anything about the auto industry?  And is this a big enough issue to run out with a sign calling Obama a lyin’ African?  What does Obama being African have to do with this appointee?  Hmm, I’d say NOTHING!  How about you?
  4. For one thing he is NOT a czar!  He was confirmed as Director of the Office of Science and Technology Policy on March 19, 2009 by a unanimous vote in the Senate.  And he NEVER said that trees and animals had rights such as humans.  Stop drinking the FOX noise kool aid.  It is rotting your brains.  And how come there isn’t any other verification of this man saying or doing any of these things except on right wing blogs and Fox noise?  Wouldn’t he have any publications that say this?  I mean the man is the founding chair of the advisory board for a quarterly journal published by MIT Press, and according to wikipedia has written and lectured extensively on the topic of climate change.  So shouldn’t I be able to find this crap you speak of?
  5. Oh for heavens sake!  So I guess we should just continue to pollute and pretend that it won’t catch up with us.  I guess we should let the polluters tell us what they should have to do or how much they should pay for polluting as it was under Bush.  And we wonder why global warming is accelerating.  Cap and trade will add $1761 per family per year, according to best sources.  And this is too much to handle?  Bush tax cuts cost 3.4 TRILLION dollars.  Where were you on that one?  Where were any of these people?  In fact the middle class is the one picking up that tab, was that OK by you and all of these angries.  Who just so happened NOT to be angry about that.
  6. You are knee deep in FOX noises ass aren’t you?  Well anyhow, can you say FALSE?  Has government run health care nationalized anything YET?  And we have plenty of nationalized health care going on right now.  Do you think we should cut them off too?  This list is bullshit.  I have shot down all of your phony outrageous claims that it looks like you took directly out of Glen Becks ass.  Well just to let you know, nationalized health care hasn’t done in any nation who has it.  Not to mention Bush’s tax cuts cost TWICE as much as any national health care.  Does this matter?  If it does then where were all the protests for Bush?  Wasn’t interested then?  Interesting that you think that government option would obliterate the private industry.  Did USPS stop Fedex or UPS?  Did public school shut down private schools?  How ridiculous!  And if these companies can’t compete, even though they are making RECORD PROFITS, then they need to shut down.
  7. Now I can see why they say that FOX news watchers are stupid.  Anyhow, Card check (also called majority sign-up) is a method for American employees to organize into a labor union in which a majority of employees in a bargaining unit sign authorization forms, or “cards,” stating they wish to be represented by the union.  Courtesy of Wikipedia!  You might want to try a bit of research as it goes a long way.   It has NOTHING to do with forcing anyone to USE union labor.  God, will the stupidity ever stop?
  8. A stimulus package which was already handed down by Bush?  Is that the stimulus you’re talking about?  Where did the money problem which he needed a stimulus for come from?  Were you concerned with WHERE the debt came from?  Were you concerned with the debt when Bush was making it with all the tax cuts?  Were any of these people caring about the deficit and debt while it was being created?  Not one phony ass bit!  This is too pathetic.  Point the finger at everyone else but the culprit, good going!  And again where were the protests to stop Bush from creating these deficits that our children are going to be saddled with?
  9. So now people are angry and protesting because he is doing the same exact thing the last President did which no one saw fault with at the time?  Man you are getting desperate here.  I didn’t see one protest or angry outburst from people who consider themselves Republicans, right wing or conservatives.  Why is that?  They didn’t care at the time?  Or did Obama somehow make it “different”?
  10. Please, you have a couple of people go around to hundreds of ACORN offices trying to peddle this scenario and you get two hits and that makes them the MOST corrupt.  By these standards the Bush Administration must be the MOST corrupt for allowing prisoners to be tortured under their watch or something to that affect.  And not distance themselves from the whole army not just the troops who did the dirt.
  11. I guess this one should be number 11.  Finally one I can say you are sooooo right!  I agree, but is this really enough to run out with picket signs yelling about a lying African and showing this man as an African which doctor?  Really, come on now!
  12. Do you think that companies who are failing and falling to the ground and begging for handouts should continue to pay their execs millions of dollars?  WOW that is something.  I do agree with this legislation.  And guess what, the companies who don’t want to have the pay capped don’t have to accept the handout either.  It isn’t like they are saying that EVERY company has to cap pay for execs.  Only companies who are begging for money.  Because the way I see it, if you have money to pay execs millions then you obviously don’t need to be begging for my hard earned tax dollars.  And I believe that if the bill said that people begging for welfare can’t be sitting in a million dollar home and driving a Cadillac to the welfare office can’t have welfare you’d be singing the praises of that on.  Oh yeah, that bill passed with flying colors back with Reagan and his welfare queens!  So I guess it is OK for the needy just NOT the rich needy.  LOL!

Please by all means carry it where ever you want!  You should have been more careful before opening your mouth.  As we see you don’t even have a grasp on what you are talking about.  You seem to suck in a lot of garbage only to spew it out in worse condition than you took it in.  I WILL be posting this to all of my readers as well and probably very few watch FOX so we won’t have to worry about them getting ALL the facts wrong such as yourself.  Thanks for giving me a good laugh today.

Thanks But No Thanks McCain/Palin

new-president

Well it is finally over and the majority of America chose brains over lunacy. We finally said enough is enough of the failed policies and gave a “real” mandate for this country to be given the makeover that it so sorely needs. And for just a split second I felt seriously sorry for McCain. I started thinking back on the disgraceful race that he waged and all those sorry feelings were quickly replaced by feelings of hope for us ALL.

In the words of Brotherpeacemaker McCain just got Baracked. McCain made some serious errors in his campaign and that to me was the reason he fell with a resounding thud. Keeping Bush’s economic plans was stupid. Picking Palin was to me, the biggest of his mistakes. She brought divisiveness, racism, classism and all sorts of negativity to the campaign as a whole. He made a lot of erratic decisions relating to the economy which was the big issue of the day. By screwing up the hot issue he totally showed his ignorance of the situation.

Palin no doubt believes that she will be in prime condition to wage her war of the crazies again in 2012. I am confident that her ignorance coupled with her divisiveness will keep her thousands of miles away from the White house. But ultimately I agree with McCain the loss was his. He is the one who brought her on the ticket practically un-vetted. He is the one who allowed his campaign to go completely negative and he is also the one who did not have a good grasp on the issues at hand. These are the reasons why Barack was able to flip seven red states.

It also looks as if the House and Senate will not only remain blue they are getting bluer. The people have spoken and they have spoken loudly. The majority made a choice that the issues were much more important than his racial affiliation. They decided that we need to have the smartest and brightest. They understood that it isn’t elitist to do well in school. It isn’t un-American to live in a big city. It isn’t socialism to repeal the Bush tax cuts for the richest Americans. A Muslim name doesn’t make you a terrorist. Acorn didn’t destroy the fabric of Democracy. And we are confident that dirty, negative campaigning does not win an election, anymore.

So congratulations President elect Barack Obama. We the people have chosen with a wide enough margin that there is no doubt. We said no to Joe the Plumber and any other names followed by occupations. We said no to drill baby drill. We said no to palling around with terrorism. We said no to guilt by association. We said no to more war. We said no to racism. And above all we said thanks but no thanks to the McCain/Palin political hate machine. Hopefully McCain will be able to recapture that integrity and “real” maverick spirit he lost in this election.

Is Folksy Another Way To Say Liar?

I think Sarah Palin actually stayed on her feet during the debate, denying any of the Democrats the fun and joy of watching her once again fall on her face as she did in the company of Charlie Gibson, Katie Couric and some college student outside of the cheese steak sandwich shop. Yet, she did do her job by being able to string sentences together in a way that was coherent, this time. But is that really the criteria by which we judge our Vice Presidential candidates? This is as if being able to coherently string together sentences makes you qualified to be at the head of our government. How pathetic.

So I am wondering if the truth is just something that Palin just doesn’t quite understand. It is interesting to say the least that she continues her barrage of lies while seemingly being given a pass. She is running with the same old Bush tactics of tell a lie enough times and people will be stupid enough to believe it. She and McCain tout that they are nothing like the Bush administration and plan to bring change, yet I can’t help but notice that they sure follow Bush’s lead when debating and running a campaign. So let’s have a look at some of these interesting lies that she fails to stop saying even after being called on them.

Palin says that she is a serious Washington outsider because she is someone who is just not used to the way that things operate when “you voted for the war then turn around and oppose it.” Palin, do you mean the same way that you supported the bridge to nowhere before ya’ didn’t? Remember that thing you said um what was it again, oh yeah, “thanks but no thanks to that bridge to nowhere.” Remember you said all those big words AFTER saying that Alaska should build up its infrastructure while your representatives had the pull and power to get you all funds to do so.

She keeps talking about how she was such a tax relief advocate saying that she lowered taxes each year she was the Mayor of Wasilla. Well, if you mean you lowered taxes by raising them, then yep you betcha’. Sarah Palin successfully pushed for a referendum to raise local sales taxes to pay for a multi-use sports complex. In a memo CBS got from the Wasilla City Hall, Palin said it made sense to raise taxes because there was strong support for the hockey rink, the private sector had failed to step in and because it would be good to use government money to prevent social problems instead of spending money to try and fix them. I guess she did lowered taxes by raising them first. You know thanks but no thanks to higher taxes.

There you go again Sarah, claiming that you are building the largest natural gas pipeline in North America. For one thing the pipeline doesn’t even have approval yet so I wouldn’t really call that “building.” I don’t think I am mistaken or playing with semantics when I say that building implies that there are people hammering and welding or whatever it takes to BUILD a pipeline. I don’t know about the rest of you but I am seeing that those who think this lady is somehow smart or qualified are certifiably crazy or are seriously lacking in brain cells.

She claims that McClellan didn’t say that a surge wouldn’t work in Afghanistan. Who in the hell is McClellan, unless she is talking about Scott McClellan, but I don’t think that he has any knowledge of what will or won’t work in Afghanistan. I guess a General named McKiernan is a little like an ex-White House Press Secretary named Scott McClellan except that a General named David McKiernan has ACTUAL RESPONSIBILITIES IN AFGHANISTAN!

Is this lady kidding? But the truth actually is that after McCain John McCain said that “the same strategy” the surge implemented in Iraq is “going to have to be employed in Afghanistan.” General McKiernan not McClellan said emphatically that no Iraq-style “surge” of forces will end the conflict there (Afghanistan).

Obama is going to RAISE taxes Sarah loudly proclaims into the microphone AGAIN. Say it ain’t so Sarah! There you go lying again!  Say that with a wink, nod and a smile. Hasn’t this lie been repeatedly debunked? *Sigh* According to The Non-partisan Urban-Brookings Tax Policy Center, Senator Obama offers much larger tax breaks to low- and middle-income taxpayers and would increase taxes on high-income taxpayers. The largest tax cuts, as a share of income, would go to those at the bottom of the income distribution, while taxpayers with the highest income would see their taxes rise.

Yet in marked contrast, Senator McCain’s tax cuts would primarily benefit those with very high incomes, almost all of whom would receive large tax cuts that would, on average, raise their after-tax incomes by more than twice the average for all households. Many fewer households at the bottom of the income distribution would get tax cuts and those whose taxes fall would, on average, see their after-tax income rise much less.

Oh Sarah, you little liar you. Aren’t you so cute with your exaggerations, fabrications and quick witted cock and bull stories? Now I have to ask if this is what we are looking for. Another four years of the lies, the fear mongering, the cloak over the entire executive branch. I mean they aren’t really looking any different with the tactics they are using. Such as accusing people of “gotcha” questioning for just asking a candidate what they know.

Or how about employing a barrage of high powered lawyers in order to stall or otherwise hinder her little “troopergate” scandal. And they want to continue pretending they are running on the platform of change. Actually I guess you can say they are running on change, the only change being the names of the White house players. Except for that everything is looking pretty much the same.

What McCain/Palin Ticket Brings The Black Community

The answer to my title question is NOT A DAMN THING!!!  I thought I would give those who thought this post might be about something else a heads up.

This whole McCain, Palin ticket has been nothing short of hypocrisy, closed mindedness and outright lies. I look at both of them and I would love to know exactly what is it that this party ticket is going to bring to the black community or any minority community for that matter? I watched their convention which looked more like some sort of Klan rally minus the white robes than some sort of engine for change. What is different about the Republican Party being full of white faces all talking about how we all have those “small town values” or how we have “values like those in the 1950’s”? Both of which I heard from delegates as well as people on the convention floor.

McCain voted against a holiday for Martin Luther King Jr. in Arizona and Palin has stated that ALL crimes are “hate crimes” so we don’t need to protect minorities with “special laws”. Now for Governor Palin’s benefit, I know that Martin Luther King Jr. was NOT a mayor in that big old whopping metropolis of Wasilla. But being a lowly COMMUNITY ACTIVIST he was able to rally a black population which is a heck of a lot larger than the metropolis of Wasilla and actually get the government to make changes that they should have in the first place. The government enacted laws to make racism etc. illegal but, like we all know there are laws against murder and stealing etc. and they are ALL broken time and time again. So it stands to reason that so are ones outlawing racism.

But this is what the Republicans think we need, a Vice President who has absolutely NO experience dealing with anything except white soccer moms up in a state that doesn’t have half the population of the city of Los Angeles. A person who embodies the same old crappy ideas of the old time Republicans which are more wars, less personal rights, including women’s rights and community somehow is bad. With her being so extremely exclusive, meaning that she talks about the “values” of people like her and McCain and how she will work for you. Well what about those who don’t share YOUR values? What about people who don’t LOOK like you and your predominantly white party, state or city of Wasilla? Will you work for us too?

And now they have the nerve to say that they will NOT let Palin be interviewed until they say and by whom they say. We already have an executive team in the White house that has zero TRANSPARENCY, and now the McCain Palin ticket is going down the same road. They have the audacity to try and block the people from getting the “straight talk” so to speak from this lady on her ideas, policies and issues. So it stands to reason that if these fools are elected we will have the same no access policy that we have now. Now more than ever it would seem that people should be looking for transparency. Not looking to get more losers hanging iron curtains in the White house.

Now we can see that she is totally unqualified or they wouldn’t hide her from the press and American people. In fact it would be just the opposite, because if she were qualified they would have her running everywhere for press coverage. And people are comparing her and Obama’s experience. That is the racism of this country. He is the presidential nominee and shouldn’t even be in the same rank as the VP. When was the last time the press or public compared McCain to Biden or any presidential nominee to some VP? Never! They never have and probably never will again unless we have another black nominee.

The fact remains that this lady is damaged goods who has no intention of helping minorities, not even the mentally disabled like her son. She will engage in acts that benefit her son, no doubt, but OUR family members who are in the same boat will be undoubtedly thrown overboard. Same thing goes for fixing schools, ending poverty, boosting the economy, strengthening communities or anything else the black community needs. She will be tossing all of us overboard since we don’t fit in to the Republican Party image they showed at their convention.  Nor do we fit into her “hockey mom”, white middle class, small town values, 1950’s loving people.
