Discussion of US politics and their world impact.

The Results of The GOP Starving The IRS

"GOP's cuts to IRS budget will tax our patience

Republican Sen. Ted Cruz, speaking this week at a conservative policy summit, presented what he called the "single most important tax reform" America could make: abolishing the Internal Revenue Service.

Ben Carson's comparisons

His latest is the Isis fight is the same as the US fight for independance, in that people are willing to die for a cause. "Unlike today in America" was his post script comment.

Previously he said the ACA is the worst law in the US since slavery was law. ACA=slavery and Isis=minutemen so his pesence in the GOP debates will be interesting. He's a neurosurgeon, Rand Paul is board certified opthamologist (the board is one he created himself, but it is a board, as is a smorgasbord and to get the doctor title you need the boardwalk).

Why Sen, Feinstein Has To Go

This is a liberal Democrat who is only liberal on women's issues.

Iowa Judge Henry Latham drags Tumor ladened Cancer Patient into Court who dies later.

This is sickening! The American flag should be replaced with a vomit soaked rag as the symbol of this vile nation. An Iowa Judge, Henry Latham, dragged Benton Mackenzie and his family into court for growing marijuana he was using for his angiosarcoma disease. Mackenzie literally has huge tumors hanging off his body (pictures here, but they are graphic). Of course the stress of the trail just made him sicker. He is dead now.

Boehner's death threat

A bartender that happened to be Jesus Christ said he was going to shoot Boehner because he was the devil. He has had a couple psychotic breaks in the past bet the NRA assured his right to protect himself with an AKS assault rifle and a berreta .38.

This is funny to me in a sick absurd way. American absurdity is what keeps Dave Barry and other's happy and fully employed. The American joke needs no writers, sometimes.

World Leaders Paris March of Solidarity

The US sent only an ambassador and outrage is flying at Obama's decision to not attend. Maybe the unilateral consensus was "Please stay away". Arsonists like to return to see the results of their work. The US appearance and being embraced by world leaders could be seen as embracing the arsonist that returns to shed crocodile tears, but is ultimately responsible for the current situation.

Conservatism = the Quest for Oligarchy, period.

Republicans do better in elections when the Middle Class is as small as possible. Conversely, Democrats traditionally do better in elections when the Middle Class is as large as possible.

What's The Ultimate Goal Of Corporate Personhood?

What's the ultimate goal of those pushing corporate personhood?

I suspect we can see what's on the corporate wish list when we look at some free trade deals like NAFTA. It contains a onerous provision that allows corporations to sue a nation in a secret tribunal to recover lost profits even if they've not yet been realized.

Zimmerman Arrested Again

http://edition.cnn.com/2015/01/10/us/george-zimmerman-arrested/

Zimmerman, the darling of the Gun Nut right, was arrested again on a domestic violence charge and made to surrender his gun.

Positive curbside racial activism: "Honk Twice for Trayvon, Ferguson, Garner" campaigns

Racism is cancer of the soul. We all have within ourselves the cure, providing we have the courage and humility to choose it.

The effects of institutionalized racism have had gut-wrenching consequences of late, with Grand Juries being dissuaded from delivering indictments on murderous officers by DAs who work with police for their livelihoods. The aftermaths of each injustice have put thousands on the streets full of justifiable outrage, with sometimes those on the fringes resorting to rioting and looting.

"Je suis Charlie" - and - "As-salamu alaykum"

"Charlie Hebdo," from what I have seen, is racist and xenophobic.

Obama Goes Kumbaya Liberal Rogue

Poor President Obama has resorted to going liberal rogue now that he realizes the next 2 years will amount to nothing for his legacy dealing with the Repub Congress. He realizes he will need a large supply of veto pens. First, he does the executive action on immigration. Now he does his free community college proposal. What a crock! Here in CA, community college is only $46/unit with subsidies for low income that reduce it to nothing. It is already basically free. Nobody has rung up 10's of thousands in student loans going to community college.
