The Conservatives' Reputation For Business Acumen Is A Fake


 "The Republicans are looking after the financial interests of the wealthiest individuals in this country," said Ted Kennedy, and nothing has changed since then - except the Cons have driven the middle class deeper and deeper into poverty, just like they planned.

They lost their reputation for financial expertise and balancing the budget under Dubya, they lost their reputation for honesty under Nixon, and they lost their mantle of caring for the middle class under Reagan.

Yet they push relentlessly forward as the Low Information Voter and voting apathy in general keeps them in power, and here's a little fairy tale that proves the point...



To Conservatives, money is God and corruption is their religion...



The way that the Cons go to the Bible for inspiration isn't so inspiring, though...



...especially when it comes to the poor.



If the voters REALLY paid attention, they would find out that Conservatism and the economy are a horrific mix...



And while they ignore history, they are doomed to repeat it...

How did this happen, anyway?

Photo: HOW DID WE GET TO THIS POINT?

POWELL MEMO WRITTEN 1971, FAIRNESS DOCTRINE ENDED 1987, RUSH LIMBAUGH WENT NATIONAL 1988, FOX NEWS WENT LIVE 1996.

THE RIGHT WING HAS BEEN POUNDING RURAL AMERICA WITH PROPAGANDA FOR OVER 20 YEARS AND IT WILL BE HARD TO UNDO THE DAMAGE THAT RUSH AND FOX HAVE DONE TO THE COUNTRY.

JOSEPH GOEBBELS WOULD BE PROUD OF WHAT THE RIGHT WING THINK TANKS HAVE DONE ON THE BRAINWASHING OF THE AMERICAN PEOPLE.

If you look at this last election you can see the damage at the state level the GOP is doing and it is rural parts of those states you see they are like 80% conservative.

Sad thing is the DFL was founded by Farmers. The advent of hate radio has really turned the rural areas into hot beds for conservatives.

Once the Post Office is closed, FOX and RUSH will be working hard to tell Rural America that the party that is attacking them is the Democrats and that Black President and most will buy the LIE.

MANY THINGS RURAL AMERICA LOVE AND NEED WILL BE ATTACK BY THE GOP!

Post Office ( Issa stands to make almost a billion dollars killing the Post Office he is in charge of )

Social Security 

Medicare

Medicaid

Veteran Benefits

Many more to come. Let’s Hope Rural America see the light because they can be the game changer on becoming a Fascist Nation or stay as a democracy.

And according to an ex-Con, here is why...


Goodbye to All That Reflections of a GOP Operative Who Left the Cult
(Photo: Carolyn Tiry / Flickr)
Barbara Stanwyck: "We're both rotten!"

Fred MacMurray: "Yeah - only you're a little more rotten." -"Double Indemnity" (1944)

"Those lines of dialogue from a classic film noir sum up the state of the two political parties in contemporary America. Both parties are rotten - how could they not be, given the complete infestation of the political system by corporate money on a scale that now requires a presidential candidate to raise upwards of a billion dollars to be competitive in the general election? Both parties are captives to corporate loot. The main reason the Democrats' health care bill will be a budget buster once it fully phases in is the Democrats' rank capitulation to corporate interests - no single-payer system, in order to mollify the insurers; and no negotiation of drug prices, a craven surrender to Big Pharma.


"But both parties are not rotten in quite the same way. The Democrats have their share of machine politicians, careerists, corporate bagmen, egomaniacs and kooks. Nothing, however, quite matches the modern GOP..."

Finally, we see that their pillaging and robbing of the middle class and poor was their strategy along. Your grandfather's GOP was the same as today's, they just don't lie as much about it these days...




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



As the man said, just "follow the money."  Conservatism is all about serving the interests of the richest in our society, and the greediest among those billionaires HATE missing out on pirating the money of the middle class.

The Founding Fathers had a few things to say about greed, riches, and class warfare, and the rape of our income and savings is inherently anti-American.

"Anti-American?" Isn't that a hoot, coming from the people who claim that they're patriotic Americans.

In the article above, "Goodbye to All That: Reflections of a GOP Operative Who Left the Cult," we find this interesting quote -- a quote that unmasks the GOP and the Cons for what they really are"
"A couple of years ago, a Republican committee staff director told me candidly (and proudly) what the method was to all this obstruction and disruption. Should Republicans succeed in obstructing the Senate from doing its job, it would further lower Congress's generic favorability rating among the American people. By sabotaging the reputation of an institution of government, the party that is programmatically against government would come out the relative winner."
Isn't it time to criminalize Conservatism? (Joyce, Jnr.)

"Herbert Hoover once ran on the slogan, 'Two cars in every garage.' Apparently,
the Republican candidate this year is running on the slogan, 'Two families in
every garage.'"

More Stupidity From The Conservatives


"Facts are stupid things," said Ronald Reagan.  And nowhere on earth can you find a criminal cartel with button men as stupid as those in the Conservative "movement."

Stupidity and racism have been linked by scientific studies, and the stupid racists keep supplying us with the evidence...like this:



...and this:



And this...



And you remember this guy...



The rest of us know how stupid the Cons are...


Linked into that racism and stupidity is fear...


...and fear leads to hate, just like the Conservatives want it.

Photo

Because they can spew their hateful venom, especially when they're fondling their guns...

And how do the Cons' stupidest candidates manage to win their elections?

"The REAL Reason The GOP Keeps Winning: Lies, Fraud, Vote-Rigging, And Treason (VIDEO)."



"As the Democrats’ stunning midterm losses prompt much soul-searching and finger-pointing, we ignore the real reasons the GOP keeps winning: Lies, fraud, vote-rigging, and treason.

"How else do we explain why the majority of Americans support policies promoted by the Democratic party, but keep electing Republicans to our federal, state, and local governments?"

(Click here for the video and the rest of the story: http://www.addictinginfo.org/2014/11/14/real-reason-gop-keeps-winning-lies-fraud-vote-rigging-treason-video/)

Finally, with all the Cons in America there's no reason to think that foreign terrorists can conquer us...



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

This is our 184th post in our short lifetime on the subject, "Conservatives Are Stupid," and the Cons show no sign of getting any smarter.

Perhaps a mandatory course in Critical Thinking and one in English 101 at their local community colleges would help them -- but we doubt whether we could pass such a law, unless...

...we criminalize Conservatism first! (Joyce, Jnr.)

"I wonder how many times you have to be hit on the head before you
 find out who's hitting you? It's about time that the people of America
 realized what the Republicans have been doing to them."

The Sleaziness of Fox News


Whether you call then Faux News or Fox Snooze, there's no doubt about it: Fox is the GOP house organ, filled with partisan propaganda, and sympathetic towards Teabagger Conservatives - but wholly committed to spreading the marching orders of the Republican Party.

But lies and hypocrisy aside, Fox is the sleaziest network on the planet.

Here's just one example...

"WTF? Fox News Links Bill Cosby’s Alleged Sexual Abuse To Hillary Clinton’s Presidential Prospects."

Hillary Clinton WTF

"Earlier this year Fox News fortified their rabidly right-wing roster of Republican PR flacks by hiring Roger Stone, a veteran GOP dirty trickster and notorious Clinton hater. Stone cut his teeth in the nastiest campaigns of Richard Nixon and in 2008 he founded a group to oppose Hillary Clinton’s primary campaign that he called 'Citizens United Not Timid,' or C.U.N.T. He said that the group’s mission was 'to educate the American public about what Hillary Clinton really is.'

Well, Fox is getting their money’s worth as Stone makes appearances on the 'news' network spewing outrageous allegations and vile insinuations that set the bar for decency at new lows. Last week Stone visited the Kurvy Kouch Potatoes at Fox & Friends (video below) to hurl his trademark insults and innuendo. He was asked by Elizabeth Hasselbeck for some 'insight with Hillary Clinton’s relationship with Wall Street.' Stone’s answer began predictably by asserting that it 'causes her real problems.' Of course, if she had no relationship with Wall Street that would also be a problem. Fox is hard-wired so that anything that happens, or doesn’t happen, is a problem for Democrats. But then he swerved to inject an unrelated criticism from far-right field.
"Frankly, the much greater issue is the new public Bill Cosby scandal, which is gonna cause a reexamination of the problems of Bill Clinton and what Hillary knew about those actions and what she did to suppress them. So I think the Bill Cosby issue, as it were, could be a real problem for Bill Clinton and, therefore, for Hillary Clinton."

"Yes. That’s 'the much greater issue.' A twenty year old incident of marital infidelity that is in no way analogous to Bill Cosby. Clinton’s affairs were consensual and, by all accounts, they stopped twenty years ago..."

And here's another one...



...and another one:



...and here are a few more:




Then there's Bill O'Lielly and his made-up war...

"'The War On Christmas' is a Big, Fat Lie."



"Every year without fail the 'War On Christmas' begins once again, and every year without fail we see the same tired old memes and talking points from the same old sources about how we need to 'Put Christ Back In Christmas.' Whether it’s Sarah Palin hawking another lousy book which is released just in time for the Christmas shopping season (complete coincidence, I’m sure) or Bill O’Reilly’s annual kvetching about the “Secular Progressive assaults on the traditions of Christmas” – enough is enough.

"It’s not just these two self-promoting snake oil salespeople spreading misinformation for a buck – there’s millions of people out there who are actually convinced that people like myself and others who believe fully in the separation of church and state are coming for their Christmas. It’s also not a surprise that many of the same people think that Obamacare has death panels, that the government is coming to take their guns, or that gay marriage will somehow be a threat to their own heterosexual union. Let’s be absolutely clear – there isn’t a 'War On Christmas' and nobody is trying to outlaw the holiday. Nobody is going to come and seize your tree or take little Bobby’s presents from under it like The Grinch. This whole fake outrage is nothing more than a gimmick by opportunistic individuals to drive TV ratings and book sales. Christmas isn’t going anywhere; in fact, the holiday now seems to stretch from before Halloween until the dried out tree hits the curb around New Year’s Eve..."

Naturally, Fox believes the people in the Tea Party who have told us they are color-blind...



And we should believe them because in the words of their fearless leader...



Like all good journalists, they investigate all the stories fit to print...



...leading us to wonder:



But that's okay, because Fox can defend all of its lies!


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

Naturally,no one would support the idea of "banning deception from all news broadcasts" because of that pesky First Amendment idea of free speech.

But it isn't free speech to yell "fire" in a theater, it isn't free speech to persuade your children to try heroin, and it isn't free speech to lie about those things that are important to a democracy.

Free speech isn't an objection to criminalizing Conservatism: Conservatism is as dangerous as a panic in a darkened theater and needs to be abolished NOW.

"Fox News is nothing if not impressive. No matter how harsh the criticism it
endures, the network somehow always manages to prove itself even worse than
we had previously imagined."
