Will the TeaPublicans say NO to a Jobs bill?

Like Hell yes they will, because that is just who they are.

You say you want 466 billion? Dollars?Really ? Please!! We will give you 1.99 and a bucket of chicken..Take it or leave it..Boy


I'm going to admit being HOPEFUL when I first heard the President's address to Congress, but in the cold light of day I realize it's just more of doing the same old thing over and over again HOPING for a different result.

"I am sending this Congress a plan that you should pass right away. It's called the American Jobs Act. There should be nothing controversial about this piece of legislation. Everything in here is the kind of proposal that's been supported by both Democrats and Republicans – including many who sit here tonight. And everything in this bill will be paid for. Everything."

"This isn't political grandstanding. This isn't class warfare. This is simple math. These are real choices that we have to make."
Okay, this all sounds great, but here is the reality: we are just a few months away from a national election, and the folks who are trying to get the White House back are going to do nothing to help you turn the economy around. They want you to fail, Mr. President. Which part of that don't you understand? It's not in their best interest to turn this economy around.


There are some who say the President's Job Bill is better than nothing, but I disagree. Nothing from nothing leaves nothing.
"But how will we pay for all of this without further raising the deficit Mr. President?" Close tax loopholes, restructuring certain entitlement programs like Medicare, and raising personal income taxes for those who can afford it in our country. (Memo to O, next time put someone else in the box next to the wonderful first lady besides the CEO of the main culprit for sending A-merry-can money and jobs oversees.)

In the cold light of day The speech was a weak and desperate call for Congress to get behind a mishmash of failed Republican policies.

O.K., about the Obama plan: It calls for about $200 billion in new spending — much of it on things we need in any case, like school repair, transportation networks, and avoiding teacher layoffs — and $240 billion in tax cuts. That may sound like a lot, but it actually isn’t. The lingering effects of the housing bust and the overhang of household debt from the bubble years are creating a roughly $1 trillion per year hole in the U.S. economy, and this plan — which wouldn’t deliver all its benefits in the first year — would fill only part of that hole. And it’s unclear, in particular, how effective the tax cuts would be at boosting spending.


So maybe it's just as well the obstructionist, do nothing, republican controlled Congress tells the American people they can go straight to hell. Maybe that will motivate voters to go to the polls and take the Son's of Bitches out in 2012. That is if we are allowed to vote in 2012.

Last week, right-wing pundit Matthew Vadum created a stir when he argued that -- as his piece at American Thinker is titled -- "Registering the Poor to Vote is Un-American." Here's how the piece starts:
Why are left-wing activist groups so keen on registering the poor to vote?

Because they know the poor can be counted on to vote themselves more benefits by electing redistributionist politicians. Welfare recipients are particularly open to demagoguery and bribery.

Registering them to vote is like handing out burglary tools to criminals. It is profoundly antisocial and un-American to empower the nonproductive segments of the population to destroy the country -- which is precisely why Barack Obama zealously supports registering welfare recipients to vote.

It appears to me that is the real political divide we have in this country. It is not just liberal versus conservative, Republican versus Democrat. It is also the religious faithful against those who look to science instead of myth as the basis for knowledge and the source of solutions.

During the Bush Years, this came to be known as the “reality-based” community versus the “faith-based” community.

Since religion is easier to understand for those with an average IQ of 100, myth still tends to trump science in this country much of the time.

That’s how Rush Limbaugh on talk radio and Fox News made fortunes pandering to the lowest common denominator crowd, and why smarter and more progressive publications have been less financially successful historically. The mass audience can’t read or comprehend complicated arguments, or they won’t take the time to try to understand them. They tend to go for simple, black and white ideas that appeal to their preconceived notions and prejudices


Lord help us.

It’s the iconic idiocy of these race-baiters that manipulate a gullible and undereducated black populace, perpetuate the “victim” status, and keep black people in bondage. They’re the antithesis of everything Martin Luther King stood for.
These people aren’t about equal rights and equal opportunity, they’re about power, popularity, and prestige . . .“If we can’t control the country, let’s control our own people!”
Instead of educating, empowering, and inspiring black Americans to achieve greatness, they inflate their own egos and vainglorious fame under the mantra of “We’re looking out for you.”
No you’re not. You’re looking out for yourselves. And you’re doing it at the expense and naivety of less fortunate and less educated blacks across the country. Abraham Lincoln emancipated your people from slavery. You, on the other hand, elect to keep them there.
It’s not the whites, hispanics or the government that continues to oppress blacks—It’s you Mr. Jackson, Mr. Sharpton, Mr. Farrakhan, Mr. Green and Ms. Waters. And you’re doing it through your “Whoa is me,” “I’m a victim,” “They owe us” political propaganda that does nothing more than incite hatred, bigotry, reverse discrimination and venomous invective against the very people that really do care about your constituents . . . namely, those terrorist Tea Partiers, Republicans, Democrats, Independents, Liberals, and Conservatives who fight for a Free Democratic Republic—for all American citizens—every single day!
Instead of pushing for more social welfare, blaming Republicans and the Tea Party, and keeping your members and constituents in a perpetual “Nanny State,” how about advocating personal “Responsibility” and “Accountability!” Better yet, how about stepping aside and letting untainted black role models like Colin Powell, Herman Cain, Allen West and Rev. Jesse Lee Peterson, who was recently on my radio show, provide the leadership you dismally fail at? Please read more at CatchKevin.com.

Rev. Jessie Lee Patterson

Rev. Jesse Lee Peterson, Founder and CEO of The Brotherhood Organization of A New Destiny (BOND), Tea Party leader of South Central Los Angeles, and syndicated radio show host explains how black Americans are being kept in bondage and being victimized, not by whites and the Republican Party, but by leaders of their own caucus.

Another man that has common sense!

Says the race-baiter.

Translation-let us white folks tell you black folks who your leaders should be because you need us to take care of you like you did when you were in bondage (slavery). Let us be your masters.
