What IS The Conservative Agenda?


After so many years as a minority in Congress whose strategy was to just say no to every common-sense proposal AND manufacturing crises after crises AND shutting the government down, we have to ask ourselves a question - what IS the Conservative agenda going to be for the next two years or more?



This is how they were helping our country get out of the worst economic catastrophe since the Great Depression...



...and this is their strategery:



They'll probably just keep on truckin' the same way as before, as we find out from this article...

"Republicans Introduce Throwback Legislation To Rekindle Forgotten Welfare Fight From 2012."

"WASHINGTON -- Some issues are just too good for politicians to let go. For instance, Republicans vote to defund ACORN almost annually, even though the advocacy group went out of business years ago.

"Another such issue appears to be saving welfare reform from President Barack Obama.


"Last week, Rep. Paul Ryan (R-Wis.) and other Republicans on the House Ways and Means Committee revived an old fight by introducing a bill to stop the Obama administration from waiving work requirements for welfare recipients.

"This issue first surfaced during the 2012 presidential campaign, when GOP presidential nominee Mitt Romney and Ryan, his running mate, accused the Obama White House of trying to eliminate work requirements for beneficiaries of Temporary Assistance for Needy Families, the program most closely associated with the concept of 'welfare.' That summer, the administration had invited states to apply for waivers from certain federal rules dictating welfare work requirements.

"Romney, Ryan and other critics said the move gutted the landmark welfare reform legislation of 1996, even though the White House's invitation didn't result in any actual policy change: No state ever asked for a waiver.


"Fact-checkers pilloried the campaign for statements and TV ads asserting that the administration had undone the work requirements with the stroke of a pen..."

Pretty extreme, isn't it? It takes a certain personality type to be a Conservative leader, of course...



...as well as the personality and intellegence that seems to fit all their supporters.



There seems to be a link between the leadership and supporters, don't you agree?



The War On Women will continue...



...as well as the War On The Rest of Us...



But both parties are the same, aren't they?



Did we mention a certain lack of intelligence in the GOP leadership?



Here is supposed to be one of their brainier guys...



...and here's one of their craziest, as we acknowledge that the Cons are rolling in the holy, and that everything should be okay...



...won't they?



Well, as long as you save your money everything will be fine...



So to answer our question, now that the Cons are in charge what's the outlook for our country?



********************

You voted for them (or you stayed at home), so you're going to get what you deserve for the next two years - or more.

Conservatives want your money.

Conservatives want your money for their friends and sponsors.

Conservatives don't care how they get it, by hook or by crook.

And you fell for it...

Isn't it WAY past time to criminalize Conservatism?

Joyce, Jnr.

Is American Democracy Doomed?


Is our democracy doomed? Are the Conservatives taking us down the path to something other than a democracy?

Matthew Yglesias seems to think so, in this article...

"American democracy is doomed."



"America's constitutional democracy is going to collapse.


"Some day — not tomorrow, not next year, but probably sometime before runaway climate change forces us to seek a new life in outer-space colonies — there is going to be a collapse of the legal and political order and its replacement by something else. If we're lucky, it won't be violent. If we're very lucky, it will lead us to tackle the underlying problems and result in a better, more robust, political system. If we're less lucky, well, then, something worse will happen...

"As Jim Manley, a former aide to the Democratic Senate leadership, explained to The Atlantic, the obstruction not only prevented many of Obama's more controversial measures from becoming law; it also drastically altered the process of even routine governance.

"Say you want to break a filibuster. On Monday, you file cloture on a motion to proceed for a vote on Wednesday. Assuming you get it, your opponents are allowed 30 hours of debate post-cloture on the motion to proceed. That takes you to Friday, and doesn't cover amendments. The following Monday you file cloture on the bill itself, vote Wednesday, then 30 more hours of debate, and suddenly two weeks have gone by, for something that's not even controversial.


"As a political strategy, McConnell's tactics were vindicated by the 2010 midterms, which showed that making the president look partisan, clumsy, and inept was a winning strategy...

"The best we can hope for is that when the crisis does come, Americans will have the wisdom to do for ourselves what we did in the past for Germany and Japan and put a better system in place.,,"

We've seen a scenario in fiction what some believe we've become...



The Cons are practicing on a state level everything they want to impose upon us on the national level...



...including the corporatocracy that is also called - fascism.



You've heard of fascism, haven't you?



With the Cons, everything is about money...



...and those moneybags are pretty pitiful human beings.



But killing democracy is easy when you own the media...



Greed and bribery go hand in hand when you're trying to subvert a nation...



...and your attempts at extortion are getting out of hand.



Racists all vote Repubican, of course...



...and the rest of the Cons don't look too credible either.



So to kill democracy, start a fake crisis or two or three or more...



...then kill off the unions...



...then you sabotage the best and the brightest...



...while siding with democracy's enemies.



...because it's all about class warfare and "Trickle Down."

Make sure you instill the proper amount of fear into the citizenry...


...while you plunge us back to the nineteenth century...



...because nothing is easier than shutting down a government in preparation for the New American Age of Feudalism!



And here's what it's gotten us so far...

Conservatism isn't about "personal responsibility" or "states rights" or any other phony issues that are so effective in pulling the wool over their followers' eyes.

Conservatism is about one thing only - money and power for the richest and greediest among us - and all the rest of the social issues are nothing more than smoke and mirrors to fool the dumbest, most vicious, and most gullible among us.

Conservatism is all about taking from the poor and the middle class and giving it all to the rich.

Conservatism is anti-democratic and represents the largest criminal class in the world.

Isn't it time to criminalize Conservatism?

What Should We Do With Our Conservative Criminals?


Before we discuss any punishment, we need to establish the criminality of the "political philosophy" called Conservatism, so let's check in on their plans for us...

"The Terrifying Future Of Republican America Revealed In 27 Photos."

Here's what our future looks like:

LA Smog 1968 and Cuyahoga River fire 1969

"Two countries have major pollution issues, but — thanks to the Republicans — only one has any interest in doing anything about it. And it’s not us.


"Pollution in China’s a serious problem, and we Americans sure love feeling superior to them. There’s just one problem: We’re not. The wealthy plutocrats who run this country aren’t just exporting America’s jobs to China, they’re also exporting our pollution. No minimum wage, safety or environmental regulations? A win-win. Plus, our Captains of Industry get to export their filthy oil and coal to China, too.

"But wait… Not so fast. First, outsourcing our pollution to China is coming back to bite us in the butt. 29 percent of San Francisco’s particulate air pollution comes from China, according to ZME Science. Second, the Chinese government has begun taking major steps to address pollution in China. Sure, they’ve got a long way to go. But at least they’re moving forward. Here in America, we’re moving backwards..."

"...It’s morning in Republican America.

Pollution in china: Polluted water way with dead fish.

"For those of you who are too young to remember, cities in the US looked an awful lot like the following photos from China. And if we let Republicans take down the EPA and roll back the Clean Air and Clean Water Acts, this is what we’ll see in the near future..."

That was what they want to do and this is what they did:



Criminals often have the backing of those with the bucks...

Image result for republicans AND crime OR criminals

This is how they work their criminal magic...



This is how we should see them...



Sure, some people need to destroy things - that's okay, isn't it?

"Conservatives Need To Destroy Things And They Don't Care If It's YOU."

Conservatives Need To Destroy Things And They Don't Care If It's YOU.

"Total destruction gives conservatives a better erection than Viagra. Look no further than Kurt Schlicter's column over at Townhall.com today, aptly entitled 'Let's Destroy Liberal Academia.' It reads like the soft porn of conservatives' manifesto.

"To be a conservative is to desire the complete and absolute destruction of anyone and anything that isn't conservative.

"It excites them. Thrills them right down to the tingle in their leg. The prospect of burning down the house, the country, the rivers and streams, and even the polar ice cap is thrilling to them. The stuff of wet dreams.

"Schlicter:

"Sure, the legions of administrative timeservers, otherwise unemployable tenure ticks, and loan-loaded future baristas who infest our colleges will be plenty sad. After all, their free ride will come to an end when we derail their gravy train.

"And it shall be glorious, for the tears they shed when forced into a world that demands achievement, effort and accountability, will be a powerful tonic for productive citizens like us who have carried these obnoxious parasites for the last few decades. We won’t mourn modern academia’s passing. Once a college education was an aspiration. Now it’s a punchline.


"First step. Make it all zero-sum. Your opponents are cardboard cutouts, sucking off the public teat while making a mockery of whatever institution you hold dear. For Schlicter, who surely carries the water for his conservative idol David Horowitz, today's target is public universities..."

Here's another way to look at one of the biggest problems of Conservatism's impact on the world:



You say you need more evidence that Conservatism is a criminal cartel? Here are just a few examples..



Here is the pride of Conservatism: The Red States...



Those poor people haven't been able to figure out that they're being conned...



...as they think that the worst thing about our democracy is...our democracy.



Here is what they want to do to us...



Somehow we have to rid ourselves of the scourge of extremist Conservatism...



...as well as the worst aspects of capitalism...



Some how we haven't gotten rid of these pests...



...and if we do, some wonder where they will go.


And even if we get some great ideas from men of genius...



...the answer might be in our history books!



********************

The problem with stop-gap measures to combat criminals like Conservatives is that they are relentless in their War Against Democracy.

Criminalizing Conservatism involves the monitoring of politicians and "pundits" whose every action and word is aimed at overturning the Constitution and marching towards the New American Age of Feudalism.

It also involves adding the phrase "the People" to the tired old meme that corporations are responsible to their shareholders, so that our laws read: Corporations are responsible to the People first, then to their shareholders.

Isn't it way past time to criminalize them before they criminalize us?
