The GOP party of God ….Not so much!

 My morning coffee and subsequent conversations with the guys about world affairs eventually came round to the recent primaries and the fact that it appears the fringe lunatics on the right, those who spout scripture at the drop of a hat, those who have immersed themselves in mad-made dogmas that they claim to be words from God, are ruling the political asylum…at least in South Carolina.  Even Georgia looks to be set to launch serial philanderer,

The Ten Amendments: An open letter from God to Republicans

consummate liar, pathologically immoral and unethical, Newty Gingrich one step closer to the GOP nomination.  To see this bloated, flaccid miserable man set up as the golden boy for the party that claims a higher morality and Christian family values, is an affront to anyone of true faith.  This could not be more indicative of the true amoral character of the GOP.  In fact, the only way this could be worse is if Newty was married to or philandering with “Man” Coulter.

So …….what happened to all the God talk?  What happened to doing God’s work?  What happened to speaking with/to God and looking for messages only your heart can hear?  How is it that the Party of God is pulling out all the stops to nominate one of the most morally repugnant, notoriously unethical and personally vacant individuals to (dis)grace the political stage?  More

A Pack Of Wolves Loose In Washington D.C.

(NWR) – It would seem that our federally elected politicians in the U.S., have not been financially afflicted, much like the bulk of Americans since the economic downturn of 2008. No big surprise there, perhaps, but let us ordinary citizens hopefully realize that if things keep going as they are, these very same Washington D.C. officials will be telling us all that we need to make sacrifices for the greater good of the country. They will suggest such things as cutting food stamps for the poor or struggling, medical care for the elderly, etc., and likely seek to introduce a variety of new austerity measures, depending on how poorly our economy performs.

Figures from The New Center for Responsive Politics (a respectable, non-profit research group located on-line at opensecrects.org) paint a revealing picture of just how well politicians are doing compared to just about everyone else in America. One glaring example is that of Representative Ed Pastor (D. AR), who upon entering Congress In 1991 with somewhere around $100,000 in savings; being roughly about the same amount that he was indebted to banks or credit card companies, etc., has somehow since become just one more within the crowd of 250 millionaire members of Congress.

The divide between the financial security of our lawmakers in the nation’s capitol and the average American is reaching an epic and ridiculous disproportion. Significant enough to make any reasonable citizen suspect that their federal representatives can’t possibly be interested in changing a status quo of which has been making so many of them so much money. In case it may come as news to some folks, 47% of people serving in Congress are millionaires or multi-millionaires. Suffice as to say, one is not going to bump into any Washington politicians trying to save a buck at Wal-mart anytime soon, unless perhaps they are Presidential candidates seeking votes.

How is it then, that Congress people prosper while in office? One way, according to the convicted former lobbyist and government insider, Jack Abramoff, is to trade stock with the foreknowledge of privileged information that will have some effect on the exchange market. Opportunities made possible, because the United States Congress for some unfair, inexcusable and ungodly reason – is exempt from insider trading rules and regulations. Go figure? More

So….I’m drinking my morning coffee and waiting for the cribbage games to start at my usual morning hangout and I’m watching some news channel that is trying to convince viewers that Gingrich is leading the GOP charge for the White house and I’m thinking to myself….. this is a set up. 

With most of the Republican party appalled at the thought of Gingrich as a candidate, and now with the addition of Donald Trump as his side kick, no one can take this seriously.  I’m also thinking we could turn this into a reality show series.  Forget Jersey Shore…..we got “Newty and The Donald” buffoon show.  More

Lives In The Balance

I’ve been waiting for something to happen
For a week or a month or a year
With the blood in the ink of the headline
and the sound of the crowd in my ear
You might ask what it takes to remember
When you know that you’ve seen it before
Where a government lies to her people
And a country is drifting to war More
