Budget Deal Reached but Boehner, Cantor and McConnell Engage in Legislative Gimmickry to Forestall Revenue Increases on the Rich



Although most Americans(including most Republicans) have indicated in polls that they want taxes raised on the TOP 1%–the rich in America— Minority Leader Mitch McConnell in the Senate and Speaker John Boehner and Majority Leader Eric Cantor in the House continue their campaign to insulate highly profitable corporations and the wealthy from the economic hardships being experienced by 99% of Americans who do the real sweating of labor and dying in war to keep the United States at the front of global politics and economy. The 99% give so much more than their fair share of the national effort. They earn their money the old fashioned way: They sweat and toil. No derivatives! The Republican leaders with cold unfeeling eyes still refuse to tell us why they refuse to require the TOP 1% to carry their fair share of the load. It can’t be solely about large campaign contributions because Democrats receive them, too. There must be some secret Republican plan so vile and monstrous that it would rock the nation if revealed.  Yesterday, a reporter confronted Speaker of the House, Rep. John Boehner (R-OH) with the one question that we all ask: “Why do you protect the TOP 1%?” Without a pause Boehner mumbled a quip, turned and walked away from the camera refusing to be accountable to the people who “hired” him. Are Republican leaders above the people? They are the faces of untold special interests who have led this country to ruin for 30 years. Disgraced ex-Speaker Newt Gingrich taught them how to govern this way years ago. Now, Newt seeks title and ultimate power. He wants the power of the world’s only super power and the title of President of the United States.  WE MUST DENY HIM AND HIS REPUBLICAN CRONIES WHO TURN A DEAF EAR TO THE VOTERS WHO PUT THEM IN OFFICE AND NOW SUFFER THE CONSEQUENCES. Surely, the framers of the Constitution gave us the means to remove them from office. Surely there is some Abramnoff-esque obscure law, rule or procedure that we can use to reclaim the Congress and restore its honor. It will take a bi-partisan effort of great thinkers, movers and shakers to plot their destruction.  And, the time for them to begin that work is NOW!  McConnell, Boehner and Cantor think that they are unstoppable. But, God is always on the side of goodness and has promised to help us. It may have been awhile, but, let us all renew our faith in the true God and pledge our lives and our country to doing His will. Pray for His guidance in restoring the middle-class and the character upon which America was founded.  We were created to enjoy life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. The greedy and corrupt among us have brought nothing but misery to us, the 99%, and ever-increasing profits for themselves, the 1%. Let us be comforted by these words from the Bible: “Money is the root of all evil.” Jesus Christ will destroy all evil and bless us. In His name we ask for divine assistance in getting our country back! Those who do evil in the dark to accumulate money and call on God’s name in the light, will hear Him say, “Depart from Me. I never knew you!”

Lawrence O’Donnell: Donald Trump Is A ‘Very Dangerous Man Who Must Be Stopped’

by Alex Alvarez | 10:38 pm, April 20th, 2011

“On tonight’s The Last Word, host Lawrence O’Donnell had some strong words for Donald Trump… kind of like all the other times he’s had strong words for Trump.

Calling Trump “America’s Vulgarian-in-Chief,” O’Donnell led viewers through Trump’s recentToday interview with Savannah Guthrie, his awkward chat with George Stephanopoulos, and his interview Michael Isikoff – discussing his stance on abortion, his doubts about Barack Obama‘s country of birth, and his business practices (not to mention the establishment of his genuinely perplexing “Trump University”), respectively. O’Donnell continued by calling Trump a “very silly man” who can barely string a sentence together, calling special attention to an instance of Trump using poor grammar.”   FULL ARTICLE


Donald Trump Shows Up at “Glory Time” Having spent no time in the trenches.  The Republican party is devoid of good men who dare to take the national stage and have their positions on today’s issues held up for scrutiny.  They scrape the bottom of the barrel when they embrace the loud-mouth arrogance of opportunist, Donald J. Trump. Trump only comes along when there’s an opportunity for self-aggrandizement.  Why are poor and middle-class Republicans following a small group of billionaires that seek to screw them royally? Romney lies to Latinos on his website offering one version in English and a deceptive completely different message in Spanish.  Romney does not know that modern browsers can translate his true message into Spanish and see that he, Mitt Romney,  is a liar!  He doesn’t care about Latinos and blacks.  Hours ago he was speaking and had difficulty saying “social problems” because he ‘doesn’t care about “the very poor”, among others.  Donald Trump denies that his birther campaign is a distraction. This is Donald’s racist focus instead of how to get his “job creator” colleagues (the rich) to show their patriotism and finally create the jobs we need to improve our economy. He could be asking the “job creators” to bring homes all those jobs they took overseas…and repatriate their massive un-taxable profits.  All the actors in the Republican Party are putting on a show to keep us distracted from the realization that they are promoting a nominee, Mitt Romney, who they don’t like and think they can control in a Romney presidency.  Would Mitt Romney really be able to say, “No” to the millionaires and billionaires who are now writing those big checks?  Would Romney give them capitalism without rules and protections for the little guy, the workers? Hell no! Americans largely have accepted a black man as president.  After Bush, a white, GOP president who would give away the store, would lead to anarchy.  Social revolution will be discarded as the country falls into anarchy!  What I don’t understand is, why do the Romneys and Trumps of the world think that a hungry populace will not say, “Off with their heads!”
