I have received considerable criticism after posting this last night: “USA: 1776-2014. RIP”
(Why people post on Facebook and not here, I’ll never understand, or accept.)
I STAND BY EVERY THING I SAID AND WOULD NOT CHANGE A WORD. The head of the republican party, rush limbaugh, said today that republicans were NOT ELECTED TO GOVERN but rather to STOP OBAMA. Ted Cruz, the poster boy for reactionary wackos who are now in power has said that they will repeal Obamacare, which would destroy the most successful health insurance reform in US history and take more than 10 million people off of health insurance, and they will stop Obama’s “lawlessness”, but could not name a single specific instance of such conduct.
Finally, I think 17th Christian morals that decry the use of certain words in “polite” society are utter and total crap, and I especially find it difficult to understand how non-Christians can think such modern-day (self) censorship would be appropriate. The is no valid basis upon which to separate certain words as inappropriate in prose or conversation, and I will continue to use whatever language I deem appropriate in my posts, in much the same style as Bill Maher on Real TIme and Jon Stewart on the Daily Show (where, unfortunately, censors bleep out much of what he says due to archaic FCC regulations that pertain to basic cable.
These are the policies of a conservative president, and his legacy. The people put in power yesterday will bring about an exponentially worse catastrophe that is almost unimaginable. An end to government subsidies for health care, an end to food stamps, an end to public education, an end to unemployment benefits, an end to environmental protections, an end to food and water safety, and an end airline safety, but a massive increase in oil drilling, oil pipeline construction, fracking, pollution, and if they really get their way, foreign invasions. Want another ground war in the middle east? You’ve got it coming.
