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.
