Governor Rick Perry talks of secession and small government while running Texas propped up on federal aid.
REMEMBER CONGRESS IS BROKEN. IF THEY RECEIVE A FLOOD OF EMAIL FROM US, THEY WILL BE ENCOURAGED TO PUT AMERICA FIRST AND PUT ASIDE THEIR PERSONAL AGENDAS.
Strip clubs and sex workers in Tampa Florida are preparing to make big money for the Republican National Convention. Ana Kasparian and Cenk Uygur of The Young Turks discuss.
[I WONDER: Male strippers, too?]
President Obama will give his “jobs bill address” next week to Congress and the nation. We are hoping and expecting that the President will lay out a bold and comprehensive plan that will challenge Republicans to pass it when put in legislative language. The public has been waiting for Congress to get its act together” when it comes to the creation of jobs. Just this year Speaker John Boehner began the 112th Congress saying that the GOP‘s agenda will be “jobs.” After eight months, The House passed zero jobs bills. Even before the current Congress, the GOP was only talking about jobs and fighting every attempt by the administration to create jobs. [I wonder what everyday republicans think about their party whose stance affects whether the, republicans, have or keep their jobs. Watch this video:
Activist and transgender,Chaz Bono, is supported by his mother, the legendary CHER. Celebrity lawyer, Nancy Grace, tells haters and those who accuse ABC of a “homosexual agenda,” to find something better to do. If there was a “homosexual agenda,” I say that it would the same as the “American agenda” which is to seek and love the rights and freedoms all Americans can enjoy in the pursuit of happiness. Isn’t that true for you? Yes? Then from now on, support EQUAL CIVIL RIGHTS FOR ALL AMERICANS! Watch this coverage on CNN:
Recently, we saw what freshman congressmen can do in The House to screw up the works. For a very long time we have complained about gridlock in Congress, but our pleas for movement on issues have fallen on deaf ears. Perhaps some of our senators and representatives have been in The Congress long enough. Please peruse these charts on Wikipedia and see which members have been around too long. Yes, longevity gives a member power, membership on choice committees, chairmanships, etc., but, at what cost to the people who opinions they ignore? Gridlock has been going on in The Congress for decades. The Tea Party is just the latest iteration. I suggest that The Constitution be amended to allow for recalling members of Congress for cause.
Today, we learned that we have wasted $60 billion dollars on contractors and bribes in Iraq and Afghanistan. Why isn’t Eric Cantor calling for spending cut here? Why isn’t Eric Cantor calling for all our troops in Iraq and Afghanistan be brought home immediately? We would save $1.4 trillion dollars in reduced spending which would solve our most pressing economic problem!
Each day we see members of Congress being interview on TV, but, on the six o’clock news we don’t hear of this and that legislation being enacted into law. Witness: The 112th Congress has been “working” for eight months and have not passed a jobs bill. And, they won’t own up and tell us why. Maybe, “throw the bums out!”
