RICK PERRY DID NOT PERFORM A JOBS “MIRACLE” IN TEXAS 1


RICK PERRY’S JOB CREATION CLAIMS

As America is introduced to Rick Perry of Texas, we hear claims from this governor who replaced Gov. George W, Bush that are not true.  While a whole lot of jobs were created in Texas, Rick Perry cannot lay claim to them.  Anderson Cooper of CNN explains:

“Cooper also noted some of the help the state received for its relative economic boom: $6.4 billion in federal stimulus money, which did not get rid of a serious budget shortfall in 2009. Cooper brought in Republican strategist Alex Castellanos and Democratic strategist Donna Brazile to parse these numbers, and Castellanos did argued that much of the federal money was taken from the states initially and so Perry had an argument that he was merely asking for money back that was taken from him.” Alex, if we allowed the states to reclaim their tax money, what would be point of taxes?  GOP governors took money under false pretenses.  They praised President for stimulus money with one of their tongues and decried the President with the other.  Rick Perry’s is revealing his strange ideas about governance and the American people find them abhorrent.

Nader Pushes Primary Challenge to Obama

Consumer advocate and progressive liberal Ralph Nader said Thursday he will send a letter to a targeted group of 40 former university presidents, retired congressmen, progressive business leaders and civic activists and ask them to challenge President Barack Obama in 2012.

“The pitch is this: Look, take six months off from your routine, form a slate, challenge Obama in the primaries,” Nader said on Fox News.

SKR. Boehner, You Say Tax Cuts Create Jobs. When? How?


Speaker Boehner, you say no raising taxes on your rich supporters because  they create the jobs.  How come they created NO JOBS in August?  Why is unemployment so high and static?  The rich Americans who benefit from the Bush Tax Cuts ARE NOT CREATING JOBS! Please shed some tears for the 25 million unemployed Americans…and repeal the Bush Tax Cuts immediately!

RAISE TAXES ON THE RICH….AND THEN EAT THEM!

MR. PRESIDENT, THE PEOPLE’S CALL FOR CHANGE IS UNFULFILLED


CONGRESS, THE PEOPLE SAY, “PASS THE AMERICAN JOBS ACT!”


Perry Wants “Inconsequential” Gov’t


09/13/11 In last night’s debate Gov. Rick Perry promised again to make the federal government “inconsequential” in our daily lives.  He is fresh off of asking the federal for assistance in handling Texas crisis with fires.  Does Rick, know what he is saying?  Do you want an America were  the states are in charge of keeping your food free of poisons and cancerous tissue?  Does Rick think that senior Americans favor the states handling Social Security and Medicare?  Most of the states are bankrupt.  There was some talk recently of California issuing IOUs, again! Rick, do you think people want the states handling the production, safety, distribution and injection of vaccines for pandemics like the Bird Flu?

Governor Perry, do you even know what inconsequential means?

Definition of INCONSEQUENTIAL

1
2: of no significance : unimportant
People, really.  Do you want the federal government to be INCONSEQUENTIAL in your life? There are so many functions that states cannot handle! I submit, RICK PERRY, HIMSELF, WILL BE INCONSEQUENTIAL!!

RU Black? There’s a Campaign to Keep You from Voting in 2012


As a black American, I am concerned about the Presidential Election in 2012.  I have a driver’s license which is a “picture ID” in my state which will required to vote. A large number of blacks and the elderly in the South have no picture ID.  Some are too poor to own a car and need a driver’s licensed.  Their Social Security card used to be sufficient ID in business affairs where they had to prove who they were.  Republican dominated legislatures all over the nation are orchestrating a campaign to reduce democratic access to the ballot box in 2012 to secure a republican victory…like the one in the last mid-term election.  It is said that the infamous Koch Brothers are behind this seemingly uncoordinated scheme.  Please read this excerpt from Rolling Stone.

The GOP War on Voting

In a campaign supported by the Koch brothers, Republicans are working to prevent millions of Democrats from voting next year

by: Ari Berman

As the nation gears up for the 2012 presidential election, Republican officials have launched an unprecedented, centrally coordinated campaign to suppress the elements of the Democratic vote that elected Barack Obama in 2008. Just as Dixiecrats once used poll taxes and literacy tests to bar black Southerners from voting, a new crop of GOP governors and state legislators has passed a series of seemingly disconnected measures that could prevent millions of students, minorities, immigrants, ex-convicts and the elderly from casting ballots. “What has happened this year is the most significant setback to voting rights in this country in a century,” says Judith Browne-Dianis, who monitors barriers to voting as co-director of the Advancement Project, a civil rights organization based in Washington, D.C.

Republicans have long tried to drive Democratic voters away from the polls. “I don’t want everybody to vote,” the influential conservative activist Paul Weyrich told a gathering of evangelical leaders in 1980. “As a matter of fact, our leverage in the elections quite candidly goes up as the voting populace goes down.” But since the 2010 election, thanks to a conservative advocacy group founded by Weyrich, the GOP’s effort to disrupt voting rights has been more widespread and effective than ever. In a systematic campaign orchestrated by the American Legislative Exchange Council – and funded in part by David and Charles Koch, the billionaire brothers who bankrolled the Tea Party – 38 states introduced legislation this year designed to impede voters at every step of the electoral process.

All told, a dozen states have approved new obstacles to voting. Kansas and Alabama now require would-be voters to provide proof of citizenship before registering. Florida and Texas made it harder for groups like the League of Women Voters to register new voters. Maine repealed Election Day voter registration, which had been on the books since 1973. Five states – Florida, Georgia, Ohio, Tennessee and West Virginia – cut short their early voting periods. Florida and Iowa barred all ex-felons from the polls, disenfranchising thousands of previously eligible voters. And six states controlled by Republican governors and legislatures – Alabama, Kansas, South Carolina, Tennessee, Texas and Wisconsin – will require voters to produce a government-issued ID before casting ballots. More than 10 percent of U.S. citizens lack such identification, and the numbers are even higher among constituencies that traditionally lean Democratic – including 18 percent of young voters and 25 percent of African-Americans.

Taken together, such measures could significantly dampen the Democratic turnout next year – perhaps enough to shift the outcome in favor of the GOP. “One of the most pervasive political movements going on outside Washington today is the disciplined, passionate, determined effort of Republican governors and legislators to keep most of you from voting next time,” Bill Clinton told a group of student activists in July. “Why is all of this going on? This is not rocket science. They are trying to make the 2012 electorate look more like the 2010 electorate than the 2008 electorate” – a reference to the dominance of the Tea Party last year, compared to the millions of students and minorities who turned out for Obama. “There has never been in my lifetime, since we got rid of the poll tax and all the Jim Crow burdens on voting, the determined effort to limit the franchise that we see today.” [To read the this excellent entire article click here.]

Blacks (and whites)  had to demonstrate and protest to help overcome the “Jim Crow” laws which preventing them from voting. It is conceivable that many young people are not aware of The Civil Rights Act-The Voting Right Act.  They ended an ugly chapter in American history that David and Charles Koch are trying through money to reverse ex post facto. We must learn the lessons of our past, my fellow Americans.  ‘To diminish the rights of one American diminishes us all.’  Watch this capsule history of our struggle and success:
