Which party controls the Senate?.. who had total control over BOTH houses for the first two years of his Presidency?... Who's spending all the money he can and TAXING whomever he can, and enjoying a RICH Man's lifestyle and producing NOTHING?! There's not enough TAR and FEATHERS to perform the ritual needed to run these guys (and gals) out of office nor enough testical support to do so!.. You Democrats on the Dole.. just drink the Kool-aid.. and quietly go back to sleep..

One more time!.. The Government can only create GOVERNMENT Jobs!.. Ya wanna work for the Government?!.. Join the Army, Airforce, Navy or Marines! This State, this Country doesn't need more 'Government' fiddling in the Job Market, what it needs is for Government to 'Get out of the way' of private enterprise.. Y'know, you TAX the living beans out of a guy and then expect him to HIRE you for a job!.. You should be grilling your Congress to, "ease up on that rich guy's taxes and leave him enough to WANT to hire hire you"..

Instead of sitting out here DEMANDING that the Government get you a job!.. Help the Businessman.. put him in a position to HIRE you!..

Start by repealing the Obama Healthcare plan!.. enough said

The ‘head’ of the republican party,

Grover (Norquist)

ordered that the American Legislative Exchange Council undertake a new study…

ALEC, reported back to Grover:

Three Out of Four People,

make up seventy-five percent of the population.


the republican party forked over five million dollars to Goldman Sachs to research the data,

and have the data summarized and report their findings back to the American Legislative Exchange Council.

According to the republicans and their one-party system,

its sponsors, the rich and their corporations,

“It’s not whether you Win or Lose,

but where can you place the blame.”


A fool and his money can throw one heck of a party.

Many fools and their money,

can throw one heck of an election!

All republicans,

should have learned from your parents’


While the country prays that you have embodied,

the religious practice of

birth control !

There is something to be said about the direct link between communication and money.

Money isn’t everything, but it sure keeps the kids in touch.

Money isn’t everything, but it sure keeps republican politicians in touch with their financiers, and the lobbyists.

Not only, are we born naked,

wet, and


republicans, the rich and their corporations,

are sure as h.e.l.l. bent,

on making and insuring,

that it only gets worse

after birth!

Almost all republican politicians are lawyers…

99.5% of them,

give the rest a bad name.

Do you understand why a republican politician is like a banana?

First, he comes in green…

Then he turns yellow …

And finally becomes Rotten.

Republican congressmen, like NASCAR drivers,

should be FORCED to wear uniforms…


we could identify their CORPORATE SPONSORS !

Don't be asking specifics, republicans don't answer, just make promises and disappear once they get their legislation passed,

tax breaks, cheap labor, tax avoidance schemes and maximum profits.

Don't say they're liars, cheaters, and schemers,

that's just 'good business sense'.

If you wait a minute or two, there'll be a couple shooting off their pie holes about how wonderful people they are.

And the rest of us are selfish for not wanting to give them more of the things that highlight their lives, money and greed.
