Day By Day Conservatism Is Tearing Down America



Day by day Conservatism is tearing down America, let's count the ways...first, from aatp.org:

"Georgia GOP Sen. Doubles Down on Racism, Would Prefer ‘More Educated’ Voters to ‘More Black’ Voters."



There comes a time when all good men must know when to shut their face-holes, to take a step back from the feces they just stepped in, rather than pretend it’s mere mud and track it onto the carpet. But maybe they don’t have much carpet in Georgia — at least, not in Republican Fran Millar’s house. Or Facebook page, evidently...
"I do agree with Galloway and I never claimed to be nonpartisan. I would prefer more educated voters than a greater increase in the number of voters. If you don’t believe this is an efort to maximize Democratic votes pure and simple, then you are not a realist."
And just in case they missed killing you with tax cuts and health care denial...

"House Republicans slash Obama's requested Ebola funding."

The isolation ward at the Charite is one of several centres in Germany equipped to treat patients suffering from ebola and other highly infectious diseases, the clinic's doctor for tropical medicine Florian Steiner said. Ebola is one of the deadliest diseases known to humanity. It has no proven cure and there is no vaccine to prevent infection. The most effective treatment involves alleviating symptoms that include fever, vomiting and diarrhoea. The rigorous use of quarantine is needed to prevent its spread, as well as high standards of hygiene for anyone who might come into contact with the disease.  REUTERS/Thomas Peter (GERMANY - Tags: HEALTH) - RTR41ZIL

"A week ago, Doctors Without Borders said that 'World leaders are failing to address the worst ever Ebola epidemic.' This week, House Republicans are saying 'let us show you what failing looks like!' The Obama administration is asking for $88 million in funding to fight Ebola, but:
According to a source familiar with the negotiations, House Appropriations Committee Chairman Hal Rogers (R-Ky.) agreed as of Tuesday morning to spend a total of $40 million to fight the epidemic in the 2015 spending bill.
This would include $25 million for the Centers for Disease Control and $15 million for the Biological Advanced Research and Development Authority (BARDA) to ramp up production of an experimental anti-Ebola drug, the source said.
Then the Conservative-loving police will step in...

"Police Knew Schizophrenic Man Only Had Pellet Gun Before They Shot Him."

"A few days ago, it was reported by The Anti-Media that a schizophrenic man from Laredo, Texas was shot at over 80 times by police 'until he had no face.'

"Updates to the situation have filled the gap of info present when the story first came out, and now it has been revealed that a security guard in the area told police beforehand that Jose Walter Garza was simply holding a pellet gun, and the cops shot him dead anyway..."



After you get yours, your kids are next...

"Missouri Lawmakers Pass Legislation To Allow More Guns In Schools, Towns With Open Carry Bans."



"JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. (AP) — Missouri lawmakers expanded the potential for teachers to bring guns in schools and residents to openly carry firearms in cities on Thursday by overriding a veto of legislation by Gov. Jay Nixon.

"The vote capped a two-year effort by the Republican-led Legislature to expand gun rights over the objection of the Democratic governor..."

They're busy killing black people now, then they'll start on white folks...

"Here’s the Data That Shows Cops Kill Black People at a Higher Rate Than White People."

"Since a police officer shot and killed Michael Brown in Ferguson, Missouri, one month ago, reporters and researchers have scrambled to find detailed data on how often cops wound or kill civilians. What they've uncovered has been frustratingly incomplete: Perhaps not surprisingly, law enforcement agencies don't keep very good stats on incidents that turn deadly. In short, it's a mystery exactly how many Americans are shot by the police every year..."

But the Conservatives are RELENTLESSst , and it isn't just Americans that they're willing to kill...

"Idiot Ted Cruz Wants To Screw The American People AGAIN."



"Village idiot Ted Cruz was the most vocal supporter of the sixteen day government shutdown last year. His big master plan to stop Obamacare’s implementation was a complete failure and cost taxpayers at least $24 billion dollars. How fiscally responsible of him! Cruz indicated on Tuesday that he has no problem doing it again to stop the (brown kids) DREAMers from continuing receive status under the Deferred Action program.

"'I think we should use any and all means necessary to prevent the president from illegally granting amnesty.'

"Cruz said he was unsure if he’d support a continuing resolution to fund the government that didn’t have a measure to end Deferred Action of Childhood Arrivals.

"In July Cruz introduced a bill that would end the program and stop any future applicants from getting help. That means the hundreds of thousands of DREAMers that have been granted employment authorization would not be able to renew it..."

If that doesn't satisfy their blood lust, there is a whole world out there that they can destroy...

"Climate-denying congressman: Oil train safety rules are actually a government plot to limit fossil fuels."

"Tuesday night, federal regulators proposed new rules that would help prevent trains carrying crude oil from derailing and causing deadly accidents, such as occurred in summer 2013 in Quebec.

"Oh wait, sorry. According to Rep. Dana Rohrabacher, R-Calif., what the federal government actually did was pretend to crack down on rail safety, in order to sneak through climate change legislation. (Also, as he’s asserted in the past, climate change is a 'total fraud' being perpetuated by the federal government in its quest “to create global government to control all our lives.”)

"Rohrabacher lashed out at senior Transportation Department regulator Timothy Butters during a House Science Committee hearing on the Bakken crude, National Journal reports, suggesting that the agency’s efforts to implement safety standards might be 'a facade to obtain what we clearly have as a goal of this administration, which is to reduce America’s use of fossil fuel, even though it is now being presented to us as something about safety...'"

And then we can kill more through perpetual warfare!

"Alan Grayson: 'Dick Cheney Never Met A War He Didn't Like.'"



"Rep. Alan Grayson (D-Fla.) weighed in Wednesday on former Vice President Dick Cheney’s remarks that the U.S. needs to do more to counter the Islamic State, the militant group also known as ISIS.

"'Dick Cheney never met a war he didn’t like,' said Grayson in an interview with HuffPost Live.

"Cheney, one of the chief architects of the 2003 intervention in Iraq, met with House GOP members on Tuesday, arguing that stronger action needs to be taken against the Islamic State.

"Reactions to Cheney’s comments were predictably mixed. While many House Republicans agreed with the former vice president’s strategy, Democrats were more dismissive.

"'If we had taken their advice last year, then today ISIS wouldn’t be attacking with knives to necks but rather with chemical weapons,' said Grayson..."

What is WRONG with these people?

The GOP is the front group for Conservatives, where they can do the most damage to democracy. We know that the core philosophy for Conservatives is the Rule By The Rich, we know that the Cons have to lie continually to keep us from catching on to their core belief, and we know that they pretend to be on the side of evangelicals and minorities because they have to.

But never forget: Conservatism kills, it kills quite efficiently and relentlessly, and it kills lovingly.

Shouldn't there be a law?
