The Exponential Rise of Republican Presidential Criminality

GOP in jailFor decades the Republicans and Conservatives have been telling the American people there is no difference between the two parties. The reason is simple: Low voter turnout elections favor the Republicans. If the voters are apathetic, less will come out to vote. However in this article I am going to point out just one of the major differences between the two parties: Criminality.

Even though Republicans in Congress have investigated Democratic presidents incessantly, the very worse they could come up with was President Clinton’s dalliance with Monica Lewinsky. That hardly rises to the level of what Republican presidents have been in engaged in.

America’s Two-Tiered Economy

rich-poorFifty-seven percent of Americans think we are still in a recession. Economists and cable news pundits are surprised. Huh?

In the past couple of years, economists have been telling us that the economy of the United States is expanding. To make their point, they use the Growth Domestic Product, (GDP), which is the output of the economy.

GDP has been growing at a pretty consistent rate of around 2.5%. Sounds good until you put a couple of numbers together.

This is what America is up against

Americans for Prosperity, (AFP), is an organization within the Conservative Movement. They are primarily funded by the billionaire Koch brothers, two of the most evil men in America and a part of the Greedy Rich class.

AFP recently ran an attack ad in Michigan against ObamaCare. The ad featured a woman by the name of Julia Boonstra. In the ad, Ms. Boonstra talked about how she had cancer, is in the middle of chemotherapy and had her insurance plan canceled because of ObamaCare. She goes on to say the insurance plan to replace the one she lost was more expensive and she couldn’t continue with the doctor she was with under her own plan.

Arizona – The state where tolerance goes to die

arizona-flagUpdate: Arizona Governor Jan Brewer did the correct thing and vetoed SB1062 earlier today. That still doesn’t excuse the extreme intolerance of the Arizona legislature.

What is wrong with the people in Arizona? Are they suffering from sunstroke? Or is it just that intolerance and a lot of old white retired people go hand in hand?

The Arizona legislators have just passed a bill, (SB1062), that would allow businesses to discriminate against the LGBT community on “religious” grounds.

Conservative Alternate Reality – Minimum Wage

On February 18th, 2014 the Congressional Budget Office (CBO) released a report with their estimates of what would happen if the minimum wage in America were raised to $10.10 per hour.

Washington Poised to be First State to Ban Already Legal Medical Marijuana Dispensaries

14608 HWY 99 SUITE 304

That’s right. The Washington State legislature, that bastion of Liberalism, is getting ready to get rid of medical marijuana dispensaries. If the bill now in front of the Washington State Senate gets passed and signed into law by Governor Inslee, there will be no medical marijuana dispensaries by 2015.

If the State of Washington can ban medical marijuana dispensaries, it can happen anywhere in the country.

Republicans Scuttle the Volkswagen Plant Unionization Efforts in Tennessee (Updated)

GOP killing the middle class

*Update from Reuters: “Volkswagen’s top labor representative threatened on Wednesday to try to block further investments by the German carmaker in the southern United States if its workers there are not unionized…”

“”I can imagine fairly well that another VW factory in the United States, provided that one more should still be set up there, does not necessarily have to be assigned to the south again,” said Bernd Osterloh, head of VW’s works council.

“If co-determination isn’t guaranteed in the first place, we as workers will hardly be able to vote in favor” of potentially building another plant in the U.S. south, Osterloh, who is also on VW’s supervisory board, said.

Surprise, Surprise Republicans Are Still Lying About ObamaCare

I am not a liarThe new lie the Republican Party and the Conservative Movement are peddling is that ObamaCare is going to cost 2.7 million American jobs. They are using facts from a report by the nonpartisan Congressional Budget Office, (CBO). As usual, they are taking those facts and then spinning them in such a way as to be presenting them to be exactly opposite of what they actually say.

The 2.7 million people leaving the workforce will be doing so voluntarily because they will have more choice. Here is the picture the CBO painted:
