The “Real” Terrorists are the ones that are HOME-GROWN. Right Here. In the good ol’ USA. And yet, we want to portray them as the ones who caused the tragedy that was September 11, 2001.
The “Real” Terrorists are those like Glenn Beck, who want to demonize any form of worship that is not the way he worships. What happened to “freedom of religion, or the freedom not to engage in any worship of any kind”, as specified in the United States Constitution?
You remember? That “piece of paper” that George Bush used to wipe his ass with for eight years, while he did whatever the hell he wanted, anytime he wanted, and with Congressional blessing, too.
That’s right. A lot of the real home-grown terrorists are sitting right in Washington, DC, and we call them Members of Congress, or a United States Senator.
Well, for those of you who are declaring you will stay at home in November because both parties are full of shyt, allow me to remind you what this country stands to lose if you stay at home and congratulate yourselves on being “true to your principles”. (Via Crooks and Liars, H/T Heather):
If Republicans take back the House, Westmoreland said, they would use their new majority to force a budget battle akin to the fight staged by former Speaker Newt Gingrich with President Clinton and shut down the federal government. Westmoreland cautioned that he was fully aware that such a move would close down hospitals for veterans and shut down National Parks. But, Westmoreland argued that taking down the government is worth “the pain” because health reform and government programs are like a “gangrene” that “need to be cleaned out”:
You hear THAT? Lynn Westmoreland is one of those fool wingnuts that screwed up this country and probably voted for everything Gee Shrubya wanted, and a few things he didn’t want. But to treat those he helped send to war like “gangrene”? What the hell is in the water in the Peachtree State, that y’all keep sending these types of jackasses to be your representative voice in Congress?
GTHOOH with that shyt. And here’s more foolishness:
WESTMORELAND: If we hold the line, if we get those courageous men and women to be part of our majority. If we say look, the American people we’re listening to the American people, this is what we’re going to do. If government shuts down, we want you with us. We want you with us. We gotta have you because later on you all will call us and say look I didn’t get my check. Daddy can’t go to the VA. You know, the National Parks are closed. We need to be sure that you are with us because let me tell you this, all Americans need to understand. We need to understand this and I hope you can help share this analogy with people. Just as when you talk about what is going to possibly happen, you know I was unfortunate to cut myself with a chainsaw. I don’t know how many of you have cut yourself with a chainsaw. Chainsaw is not the cleanest instrument if you’re going to cut yourself. [...]
Wonderful. As Heather says, the GOBP is saying “Pick yourself up by your own bootstraps or just go somewhere and die” if you put the GOBP back in power in November.
And the Democrats aren’t exciting us with their slogan that while they suck, they’re not as bad as the GOBP.
Why the hell is the DCCC and Tim Kaine not making full use of Howard Dean’s talents? After all, but for his 50-state strategy, Barack Obama would not be occupying 16oo Pennsylvania Avenue right now. Why they’re running scared is beyond my analysis, but as one of our posters, Ronnie, said in a post earlier this week, WE might have to go gangsta and drag the POTUS with us, because he’s too dignified to get his pimp on, like Bush used to do. I have to respect George Bush; even if he had only a 3% approval rate, he saw it as political clout and acted like he had 97%, while ramming his policies down our throats and not giving a rat’s ass who he had to step on to get it done. He didn’t give a hang about the fallout after he left the room, either.
The POTUS has tons more political clout – but he’s just beginning to sound like he realizes he has the clout. More speeches and action like this, please:
Rebuilding the middle class, he said, has “meant taking on some powerful interests — some powerful interests who had been dominating the agenda in Washington for a very long time.”
“And they’re not always happy with me,” Mr. Obama added. “They talk about me like a dog. That’s not in my prepared remarks, it’s just — but it’s true.”
Using a metaphor he has employed a number of times before, Mr. Obama said Republicans “drove our economy into a ditch… And then they got the nerve to ask for the keys back!”
This is all the party of “NO” have to offer us in November. And if you stay home, and you come on this blog and admit you stayed home, don’t be surprised if you get busted by other posters who did their civic duty and tell you to drink your can of STHU because if you don’t vote, you have no right to complain.
