I’m rather tired of being told I’m not working, nor contributing, not doing anything of value nor making an effort. Look across this blog and it is obvious that these things didn’t simply get up online on the blog posts by themselves.

Now, in case you’re wondering why I said this, let me explain briefly. After all this work and massive work sitting here in my apartment which is behind the scenes of this blog – I’ve been told again by my family to go get a job washing dishes if I expect to make any money. And, I don’t like it because first of all, housekeeping would never get me a seal of approval, second of all – it doesn’t pay enough to keep me from being homeless and third of all, it completely ignores all of the other things I could possibly do with the limited time I have remaining in my life. Yes, I would rather sell everything I have sitting here at a yard sale, dump the rest and go be homeless or turn to stealing for a living.

I’m not qualified to be a street sweeper. I do about the worst job washing floors and standing to wash dishes would likely insure my rent would never get paid because I would be fired in short order from mucking it up. I’ve tried to be a waitress and cost the owners about $30 when the plates of Asian lobster cuisine went flying across the floor. It is not my forte.

But, those are the jobs I am to go find to call it work and make some money according to my parents. These other things have no value and cannot make any money no matter what I do with them according to these people I’ve been stuck with all my life.

Well, I’m here to tell you this one thing –

I think there are a lot of people in this country that believe the same thing as they do. I think there are neighbors and friends of mine that believe the same thing and people in churches and government leadership that also have no appreciation for the work I’ve done. That’s what I think.

And, yet – I’m supposed to be a good sport and consider a good attitude about all this. Well, I’ve considered a good attitude about all this – I’ve decided they are wrong and that money is not the only judge of value. There had to be some usefulness somewhere in all of it and I’m working now on turning those things into working capital. And, if I can’t this time – I’ll put a yard sale listing on craigslist and let people come in to buy the durn paintbrushes for a dollar, the science files can go in the trash and the designs can be thrown out into the street again as they already have nine other times in my life.

When I was watching the “Intelligence Squared Debate” on bloomberg early this morning, I think it was Lawrence Korb that repeated twice, the statement “Undermine their Narrative, Undermine their Narrative” and I thought, now wait – that’s what I’ve been living with in my Republican conservative family nearly all my life.

How did I get to be their enemy? How did I get to be the enemy of my community and the conservatives before I ever started speaking out against them? Why did they make me the “bad guy” to be blamed for every last shred of the problems in the US and in Georgia and in Cobb County and in the national budget deficits? Why did they exclude me and then use me as a place of blame when I’ve had less access to resources than nearly anyone? Why is that? Why does it even make sense to anyone?

But after working for many, many years for 16 hours a day for often, 7 days a week to make a contribution, to create solutions, to become better educated, to make things and create options that never existed before, and writing, and researching, and doing the computer things necessary to bring them online, and telling people about it, and making notes, and keeping up with the news, and working to learn more about how to do business successfully – I’ve no understanding of why I’m being told I have nothing to offer of value by my own family, my community, my friends, my state and my nation, including anyone in it and that means, Republicans, conservatives, church people, and Tea Party braggarts, too.

As if it isn’t bad enough to have done all this work without ever making the money from it which in anyone else’s hands it probably would’ve made – why should I have to endure constant self-esteem damaging attacks from nearly everywhere I turn and at the most unexpected times from my own family?

From what I can see – even in the Intelligence Squared Debate, one of the Republican cronies at the table had to work into the limited opportunities to say something (after all, it was about the US having its global wings clipped and not the national budget), that, the biggest danger to national security is “entitlements” and he said, “but nobody in Washington wants to talk about that.” He doesn’t look at the corporate welfare as “entitlements” and he, along with his Republican conservatives at Karl Roves’ massively well-funded political action committee, don’t look at “entitlements” as those given to Israel at $7 million dollars A DAY for military equipment and training, plus no telling how much every day for humanitarian and social / civic funding. That isn’t considered an “entitlement” although nearly every nation in the Mideast is getting one of that similar neighborhood of millions per day from our tax money.

Their ideas of “entitlements” don’t include the TALF money given away, the TARP money used to bail out banks and Wall Street firms, the other programs that bought toxic assets from those corporations, the massive staffs and paychecks being given to Congressional offices and Senate offices, the Treasury Department hiring people to manage the economic / financial debacle with salaried employees to help with buying the toxic assets being given on the high end of the stratosphere, including the $500,000 a month that was paid to a Wall Street firm every month for a year to tell them when to sell the toxic assets of General Motors. Nor do they count as “entitlements,” the over $185 BILLION Dollars given to AIG without Congressional accord, without any vote and without any authority to do so with our tax money.

They don’t look at it as “entitlements” when their own health care is subsidized, their own private action committees funded, when they get grants or get them for their own children and friends, nor when they give billions of dollars away for various industries and corporations to be subsidized when they are already profitable. There are not considerations of what these massive outlays of money have done to this nation’s insolvency. Those things are not blamed. Neither are the hundreds of millions paid to Fannie and Freddie executives including AFTER they worked there and the place went to hell in a handbasket.

No, it has to be told on every Christian broadcast, right-wing talk show, every hour of FoxNews opinion broadcasting, every Tea Party conservatives’ opportunity for airtime, and every email forwarding right-wing conservative opinion making operative, that the real danger to America are only those in our families who don’t do it “their way”, don’t think about it “their way”, don’t look at it “their way,” agree with things being “their way, ” act as “they want,” don’t dress and look as “they want”, don’t live in the manner as “they want,” don’t think as “they want”. And, that includes me and everyone in America like me – whatever that is and whoever it may be.

I guess I really should be angrier about this. I’ve run out of excuses for why people don’t hire me. I’ve run out of excuses for why people will give millions of dollars to other people doing the same things I’m doing, creating the kinds of things I’ve created, designing the level of things backed up by research that I’ve created, writing the degree of quality things that I’ve been writing for many years. I don’t know why that is anymore and as many excuses as I have made for the multitude of reasons why my community, and my state, and in fact, my nation’s businesses and leaders exclude me – none of them really have ever made any sense, but they do that. It is probably the way I look, I’ve said. It is probably because I don’t own the kinds of clothes I’m supposed to have in order to be doing this kind of work. And, then I said, well – maybe these people can’t know what I can do unless it is obvious by doing it and letting them see it – so I did that and the blog is certainly evidence of it.

But, now – I’ve run out of excuses for why a single chair for their offices is worth many times more to them than I am and than any of my work might ever be. I have no more excuses to offer for why it is like that in America, or why Mubarak and Qaddafi as sadistic and horrific as they are – could be treated as friends and I have been treated like an enemy and an “undesirable” by my state and community. I don’t get that. In fact, I’m not sure it is even worth trying to understand that anymore. It is more insane than I am and more evil than I ever have had the ability to be.

My mother explained to me a couple nights ago, that I need to do whatever it takes to make money except for spreading my legs. But, in America and especially in the Great Republican Sovereign State of Georgia which is predominantly Christian, Conservative and Republican – the only use for a woman in this territory is that.

Maybe its why she thought to include that first on the list of things “not to use” for making money. Okay to give it away – but don’t do that one for money.

Thanks, mom.

So, I added a couple things and fixed a typo. And, walked to the store and back. Took some nifty photos of the flowers in blossom on the way to put on the cricketdiane.com site. And, I thought about it, and I thought some more about it. And, so far today – the computer has only crashed twice trying to load a gallery on the godaddy site where cricketdiane.com is hosted with photographs of daffodils. And, I’ve thought some more about it.

I’ve watched a bit of the news that is covered over today with what it means to be bipolar and about stories of mental illness. And, I’ve decided that sounds good – it would have to be easier to live in a mental hospital than this. And, after thirty years of Republican rule – I would have to say, my life is really never going to get any better anyway. Someone should’ve just told me that in the first place. In a country where they worship Karl Rove, and people like Qaddafi and Mubarak and fawn over BP even after they’ve killed hundreds of people by considering the cost to be too great to operate safely compared to what they’d have to pay out if many people were killed, among other things – how could I possibly expect to be considered an asset?

Where Goldman Sachs screws everybody on both sides of the table, steals tax money, creates evil and conniving strategies for getting ahead then gets treated like royalty, what could any one of us expect?

Can people (including my family) honestly tell me that somehow the worth and value of my efforts suddenly changes the moment it makes $40 million dollars? And, that money means that when I was doing it day in and day out – suddenly it IS considered work instead of being considered a waste of time and a worthless one at that? Is that what I’m supposed to believe?

And, I’m supposed to believe that someone’s efforts that are the same as mine which are making money for them makes theirs more valuable, more credible and more worthwhile? Is that what this means? Of does it in fact mean I simply need to stop working at this and go bag groceries or wash dishes, however many weeks that will make a few dollars before they fire me?

That is something I considered when walking to the store, that people think if I can be given a sign to paint and do it successfully, then they will give me a thing more complicated to do – like a painting of their house and then if I can do that, they will give me a chance to do a painting of their dog. Well, I hate to say it – but I’m not a sign painter.

Did you know that I started playing chess when I was three years old and taught adults to play chess when I was only five years old, so I could grow up to be told my only value is to wash floors? Did you know that if you are a woman in America, it will always be to watch men with half the education, a third of the knowledge, a fifth of the conscience and only a tenth of the willingness to continue being educated – make hundreds of thousands of dollars for doing as little of value as possible while being paid for it? That is America.

Angelo Mozillo has value. It has been explained to me. He has a right to do whatever he wants to whomever he wants in whatever way he wants, because he is a good American and I’m the great cause of all America’s woes financially and socially. That’s because he made money screwing Americans out of their money, out of their life savings, out of their American dream, and out of their homes – and I don’t know what is wrong with me that I just can’t do that too so I can garner the respect and freedom he is given.

The other day, when the budget cuts were being blasted down the throats of America by the Republicans in Congress, I wrote an A-Z and then using the Greek Alphabet – the alpha and the omega of why the Republicans and conservatives are the exact opposite of what they publicly claimed. And, it only matters to me because I have already suffered over thirty years of their crap, watching my nation go down the drain at their hands along the way – that I feel it necessary to be saying something about it these last couple years.

I am repeating it here starting with a couple comments I made just before starting the entire ABC’s of why people serving the Republicans simply have not understood what they are serving.

Here they are –

***

Karl Rove, still running the country from the pig seat – is on FoxNews now explaining how everyone in America is to think about everything

***

Grass Roots people may have gathered for the Tea Party but professional ultra conservative right wing political operatives run it & profits

***

How many businesses have been bankrupted by Republican conservative created economic meltdown of 2007 – 2011? More than 800,000? 1 million?

***

It doesn’t matter what I say, it doesn’t add one thing to options available in Washington – they could tax sales of stocks, pay off US debt.

***

The spending problem in the US is that Republicans are keeping a third of our population in jails & institutions, keeping mass numbers poor.

***

Did you know that Republicans over last twenty years, have allowed exploratory mining & drilling in our national parks? check Mark Twain PK

***

Why are Republican conservatives &Tea Party against high-speed rail? Do they just not own stock in it like they do in cars & gas companies?

***

US Budget Cuts to Destroy US Economy & kill off most disadvantaged 41211Finalprogramcuts.pdf (application/pdf Object) http://goo.gl/aVSTY

***

$500 million taken from WIC for babies, children under 5 & pregnant women to have milk fruit juice eggs cereal – bankers given $700 Billion

***

When Republicans conservatives & Tea Party have finished off America this year it will all look like Detroit or Fukushima – US $$ worthless

***

California Republicans have been trying to remove breaks for workers, lunch breaks, and all safe work place regulations for yrs & yrs & yrs

***

New York State, they removed funds from general fund for paying off credit default swaps probably & then declared deficit as if no revenues

***

150 yrs after the Civil War & Republicans have divided us into 50 sovereign nation states instead of one great nation & made them sovereign.

***

You know what the word is for small central government? the word is  king , ruler , aristocracy , monarch , but basically the word is  king

***

$185 Billion Dollars to AIG without even batting an eye or crossing a t – but America’s women, children, babies aren’t worth it to Congress

***

They sure have made fools of the elderly who voted the Republicans conservatives & Tea Party into Washington – now elderly are getting axed

***

Republicans already made cuts to the programs to help with heating bills for the elderly in the winter, cut programs for fans in the summer

***

They’ve cut housing programs and assisted living programs from HUD, cut funding for food programs to the poor, elderly & disabled, to babies

***

Were Republicans right when they said we had to give $700 Billion Dollars to banks because otherwise credit wouldn’t flow? Where are loans?

***

If Kyl weren’t getting $200,000 yr to work in Washington representing special interests as elected Republican crony, he’d be what?

***

David_Gergen, The budget cuts you & your intellectually inbred Washington friends have foisted upon Americans is bullying & it took jobs .

***

A credible plan to pay off US Debt completely in less than a yr is to put 10 cents tax on every dollar of stocks, bonds, CDOs, cds sold

***

Charts of average income pay in US were $55,000 a yr – turns out reality is $33,000 a yr – Why does Congress get paid $179,000 per year each

***

Tomorrow, Congress will vote to make more Americans homeless, take milk fruit & cheese off tables of children, remove more jobs from America
(they already did that on Friday, when they passed budget cuts)

***

We didn’t send Democrats to Washington incl President to work w Republicans We voted to stop Republicans asinine policies destroying America

storiedstrategy Dr John Ortner
Aspire, achieve, teach: Do not go where the path may lead, go instead where there is no path and leave a trail – R. Emerson

response made back to the above twitter comment – (by me)

@storiedstrategy I have wasted my life believing & acting on that crap – people need to look at Snooky as an example of what works in 2011.

***

And, that is the truth.

***

Republicans were so worried about Lehman, AIG taking $40 billion out of US economy in short time by failing – now using US budget to do that

***

Here’s what happens – Republicans get Dems to pass these budget cuts, then when people suffer & communities devastated – blame Obama for it

***

I am not the one who used US taxpayer money to arm, train & give sophisticated equipment to Qaddafi known to be unstable, psychotic & vile

***

Taking money from the poor is stupid, all you’re doing is making criminals out of otherwise decent Americans

***

Why not take money from where there is money – like the US & London stock markets whose volumes trading numbers in the billions a day?

***

Republicans & their crony friends, Wall Street raiders took long built companies, tore them apart robbed pension funds & enriched themselves

***

Then, Republicans determined to give banks, hedge funds & Wall Street our State Revenues & US Taxpayer funds to play leveraged gambling with
5 hours ago

***

And after those finance gurus of Wall Street finished with it – all of our state & federal treasury moneys weren’t just gone, we owed for it

***

If #Republicans wanted increased jobs – wouldn’t have destroyed US economy in 2008, & wouldn’t be taking jobs from economy with budget cuts

(including, I might add – unfunding the high-speed rail projects and removing $38 billion dollars from the US economy over the next 5 and a half months.)

***

If #Republican’s feed the wealthy plan had worked, there would be no poor & no need for increased numbers of businesses & jobs & revenues

***

We are the children that they left the national debt to deal with – all the way back from WWII and rebuilding – from Nixon, Reagan & Bush x2

***

My guess is – conservative right wingers that have run this nation into the ground never looked around & noticed the number of bankruptcies

***

So after the Wall Street raiders cheated & robbed pension funds, Republicans let them & now want the money paid into Medicare & taxes
4 hours ago

***

How many Senators? 100? How many Representatives at $179,000 each plus staff members times $157,000 a yr each plus how much per diem? Hmmm?

***

(By the way, did you know that the amount of money spent on liquor for a full bar of premium brands made available on any flight for the Congressmen and Senators and paid for by US taxpayers is the same amount of money given to a person on social security to live for a year?)

***

?REVENUE is the problem with the federal and states’ budgets – the new catchphrase by #Republicans is a lie – tax stocks pay off US debt now

***

Whatever conservative thinktank or pr firm came up with current #Republican nonsense phrase  revenue isn’t the problem  fails to see US debt

***

I noticed that census figures show avg salaries in America are about $33,000 /yr rather than $55,000 /yr but govt charts haven’t changed

(When decisions were being made every year over the past five years, including last year – the assumption was made that the average American was making $55,000 a year – when in fact 90% of the nation’s income paying jobs do not pay anywhere near the downside of that amount.)

***

If that is correct & majority of Americans are NOT making $55,000 per year then the US has a REVENUES problem – axing programs won’t fix it

***

#Republicans don’t see a Revenue problem because they are getting paid $200,000 /yr plus their investments, benefits & perks at our expense

***

If every sale, purchase, trade, swap of a share of stock paid 10% of that dollar value to US Treasury, we wouldn’t be broke – no cuts req

***

When Mayor Bloomberg & Governor Cuomo cut funding to programs for homeless & work advantage / housing programs in NYC – they made more homeless

***

Now, while US builds schools in Afghanistan w tax dollars & everywhere else, our schools are relieved of tax money & more are homeless in US

***

Here are the ABC’s of Truth – they say the truth matters –

***

A #Republicans are so hungry to get at money given to Social Security, they can’t stand it. They will never be satiated until America is dead

***

B #Republicans have already stolen financial prosperity from Americans, & opportunities for America to excel – when $40 Billion withdraws?

***

C #Republicans made businesses of US jails – has managed to let most criminals (Dugard kidnapper) get away w it while arresting everyone else

***

D #Republicans got us into this mess by letting their rich friends do the same things that were done that caused Great Depression of the 30’s

***

#Might as well do the whole alphabet

***

E #Republicans ran this nation for thirty years & in that time created more wealth for fewer at expense of more people than ever done – ever

***

F #Republicans failed to see future when Savings & Loan debacle happened, when mortgage backed securities failed, when Nixon handshaked China

***

Yes, there is more than enough to do the whole alphabet – in fact, I could probably go through all 26 letters & the Greek alphabet plus some

***

G #Republicans made joke out of  no child left behind  by unfunding it, defunding it, using funds for testing which profited their companies

***

H #Republicans & specifically because of Republicans in every state & federal govt US has greater poverty & homelessness than ever in history

***

I #Republicans have given away national resources to oil companies without fair compensation return, worshiped them, subsidized & protected

***

J #Republicans cut budgets to programs serving poor, elderly, homeless, impoverished, starving, hungry, sick, disabled, children, babies, US

***

K #Republicans & conservatives fawned over Qaddafi, worshiped Mubarak etc knowing they were viciously torturing their own people & unstable

***

L #Republicans were chosen because they worked the Christian churches in America as if there were no God to reckon to at all – that’s wrong.

***

N #Republicans – no matter how good America looks on the outside & on TV – truth is, over half of America lives like a third world country

***

O #Republicans had their chance to do anything with America they wanted & could’ve made life better for all people in America – they didn’t

***

P #Republicans are the shame of our generation because they have wasted lives of more people, killed more people & devastated more than any war

***

Q #Republicans made over our agencies to be corporate servants rather than public watchdogs to suit their own purposes & benefits & profits

***

R #Republicans changed the laws protecting Americans from corporate fraud, from faulty products, for food & drug safety to suit their profit

***

S #Republicans played games with people’s lives around the entire world until we are among the most hated of nations on this earth – obscene

***

T #Republicans scream for dignity & respect while offering not one shred of anything like dignity, respect & equality to America’s citizens

***

U #Republicans have taken & taken & taken – to give to bankers, to give insurance companies, to give oil companies, to give sheiks & tyrants

***

V #Republicans & conservatives worshiped greed, money, vice, gambling, perversions, evil, Wall Street, oil companies, pharmaceuticals, banks

***

W #Republicans have herded Americans through every possible manner of raising taxes, fees, fines, impositions on US citizens in every state

***

X #Republicans gave $700 Billion to Banks, Bought toxic assets from Wall Street, gave $185 Billion to AIG & millions/day foreign militaries

***

Y #Republicans sold our public utilities & water companies to private foreign investments groups & gave away our US owned natural resources

***

Z #Republicans charged with protecting our freedoms – gave those freedoms to corporations while taking them away from the American people

***

And, then I went on through the Greek alphabet – and believe this – there is enough to go through nearly all the alphabets of the entire world and probably still have entries that could be appropriately made about them.

***

But, this is the one I find to be the most important of all –
How many businesses have been bankrupted by Republican conservative created economic meltdown of 2007 – 2011? More than 800,000? 1 million?

***

When the Depression of this Century started, I said people would be better off being told they won’t work for the next five years. But – no.

***

When small businesses have losses – there are not federal tax dollars used to bail them out. When families are without jobs – what happens?

***

Could the Republicans be voted into office if only the 1 percent paying to line their pockets were voting? Probably. Those are what matters.
***
CNN just noted Washington D.C. doesn’t have full representation in Congress – well, apparently neither do Americans – only rich represented

***

So, you believe throwing sick, elderly, disabled and poor families and children into the streets serves to make a strong military?

***
Grass Roots people may have gathered for the Tea Party but professional ultra conservative right wing political operatives run it & profits

***
Karl Rove, still running the country from the pig seat – is on FoxNews now explaining how everyone in America is to think about everything

***

Buerkle, Republican NY sitting on CSPAN talking s**t about giving banks & businesses assurances to get off billions they are holding & lend

***
It would be worth watching CSPAN as the Republican run House of Representatives vote on budget cuts to decimate US economy & poor & elderly

***

It only takes a sales tax of 10 cents on the dollar for every stock traded, sold, or purchased and US debt will be paid off in six months.

***

Republicans worked the US for 30 yrs – if it worked so well, why do they have to lie in order to get the job? to get money? to get elected?

***

banks stole homes from everyone who cared about having them & refused to work out mortgages – why should anyone buy them?

***
The US Treasury had given a contract to a Wall Street firm for $500,000 per month to tell them when to sell GM toxic assets – but no to WIC

***

There is no greater sickness of mental health than those in Washington who would decide to destroy the poor, elderly, sick, disabled & young

***

Seeing the volumes of stocks traded, the idea that my gallon of milk is taxed, everything I buy or create is taxed, but no sales tax on them

***
Corporations should be paying 25 cents on the dollar for every single dollar of sales gross made in US, that gives back to where they got it

***
Wasn’t that equal pay for equal work thing passed in 1976? Let’s see, now who has been in charge predominantly since then? Republican consv

***
Wasn’t that equal pay for equal work thing passed in 1976? Let’s see, now who has been in charge predominantly since then? Oh yeah – men.

***
In 2020 women might make the same as men according to CNN from a study – well, let’s all wait to eat or to feed our children until 2020

***
Apparently both Republicans & Democrats only need to keep their rich friends happy to get those donations. They don’t need American’s votes.

***
History will record this moment & every name in US House of Representatives that gives yes to pass budget cuts destroying US children & poor

***
It is so funny for people to amuse themselves making fun of braniacs and nerds until they need their computer fixed or something looked up.

***
Karl Rove & George Bush made it popular to be a  D  student. Who wants a doctor who got a D in anything? Who wants a stupid Congressman?

***
Personally, I didn’t think it was funny when people explained to me that most Americans don’t know how nuclear power plants work nor want to

***
When Republicans, Tea Party groups & conservatives took money from Americans promising good things for America – they were lying as a method

***
Under Republicans, there have been fewer and fewer Americans who will have the American Dream, communities have been destroyed, lives wasted

***
In Atlanta, their answer to homelessness was to remove all the park benches, arrest people for tying their shoes, putting people in jail

***
We have had wars and pestilence that didn’t kill, maim and injure as many people and families as the bad policies of the Republican Party

***
Republicans have been running this country 30 yrs & hundreds of thousands of Americans have been killed from food poisoning – its their way

***
1 in 3 hospital patients in America endure medical mistakes, drug errors, secondary infections, stupidity, bad diagnoses & errors since 1999

***
Republicans don’t want a stronger middle class lifestyle for Americans – they want what was done in Detroit to bust unions & US automakers

***
Not only did the Republicans not cut corporate subsidies, industry billions from tax dollars, we own toxic assets of banks & Wall Street

***
Why would anyone build a business in America or make innovations in a nation that encourages raiders to come in and dismantle it, steal it.

***
US Representatives failed to represent the interests of the public good in America while serving only the interests of the wealthy & bankers

***
Right wing conservatives, Tea Party groups, Republican Party conservatives are using Christian churches, Christian people, but are hedonists

***
Republicans are the only people I know who did make it possible to kill people in US w/ salmonella tainted peanut butter, e coli beef & eggs

***
Neither Russia, Japan, China, the Mideast Nations or any other enemy has destroyed as much in America as the Republicans have done in 30 yrs

***
Every successful business that had been built over a hundred years or tens of decades –  fiscal conservatives  & billionaires dismantled

***
Our US infrastructure is crumbling, costs of everything are higher, a third of our population is in jail or institutions, 30 yrs Republicans

***
In thirty years of Republican conservatives running America, there has been more bigotry, domestic violence against women, crime & poverty.

***
The US Congressional House of Representatives has become the US Representatives of the billionaires, bankers, oil companies & Goldman Sachs

Tomorrow when the votes are taken passing this horrendous evil upon the poorest of the poor in America, make sure & copy the names of yeses

***
Christianity teaches to care for poor, disabled, homeless, elderly, disadvantaged, sick, disabled, the babies. Republicans act to kill them

***
You know where I found out that hundreds of thousands of Americans are homeless were living in tent cities like the 1930s? In French news

***
They didn’t have to cut any of these budgets US, EU or US States, didn’t want to put sales tax on every share of stock sold of 10 cents/ $1

***
Republicans Tea Party conservatives have money coming from Americans to support them and their radio shows – do they know what the cuts do?

First, Republicans worshiped heinous beasts like Qaddafi & Mubarak – worshiped a dead brass bull on a New York Street – gave our money away

As long as Republican Conservatives and the Tea Party’s professional conservative political aristocracy funded by exclusive billionaires clubs and corporations funding PACS to get their friends elected – none of which look at the America people as a valuable part of our nation’s assets, but rather as a bunch of scum in the way of them enjoying a free reign of stealing every national resource, every natural resource, every dime and dollar that has ever been made by anyone in the US – then they will continue their war on all of us.

And, believe this – the report just made by China about the human rights abuses by the United States failed to report 80% of the atrocities in the United States abusing human and civil rights of its citizens that have been perpetrated, devised, instigated and applied by the Republicans in every state they have run into the ground. And, I guarantee – those abuses are far more than high unemployment figures, CIA activities and Abu Graib.

Now, either the nation of the United States of America was never I and everyone else was taught that it is or the conservative Republicans since Barry Goldwater and Nixon remade the United States into something it was never intended to be and was never right for it, wasn’t good in the final analysis and didn’t build the nation to a stronger foundation. Instead of believing that the first statement is true, since I see all evidence that the US is what I and others were taught that it is supposed to be and what its foundations were intentionally created to be – I think the other statement is the more likely accurate.

The Republicans in their perverse fear and trepidation of change or of sharing power in the country, leaving bigotry and prejudice behind, including women in the society into which they were born as full-fledged first class citizens, and in their paranoia that the war protests challenged their tenuous hold on power, reacted by becoming and by doing every thing that the great demonic powered tyrants of past history have done. And, not even one considering how un-American, un-democratic, un-Christian, intolerant, brutal, perverse, hedonistic, unholy and just plain evil that would be judged by the results of those things.

And, once more – I was not the one who worshiped a dead brass bull on a city street, put billions of dollars of taxpayers’ money in the hands of sadistic and psychotic people who tortured their own citizens brutally every day by the thousands, beat homeless people to death on the streets of America, nor taught my children to do any such thing, nor was I the one who took the brightest, best, strongest young adults of our nation to be blown into a million pieces in pursuit of wars to acquire oil rather than finding some other way to do it.

Those weren’t my choices.

I’m not the one who gave away American patents to foreign nations to compete against us. I’m also not the one who allowed corporate raiders to takeover our nation’s established companies using junk bonds and leveraged promises based on the future sell-off of the companies’ long-established resources and assets in order to dismantle it and pocket those resources. I’m not the one who looked the other way when they were doing that and destroying companies and employers whose businesses had been growing for over a hundred years simply to enrich a few by robbing the pension funds, borrowing against any future earnings of the company and selling off all its assets that might make any future earnings even possible.

Then, weren’t they the same ones bankrupting the company and putting all those people and communities into a welfare state – despite those employees having worked as good decent hard-working Americans for years upon years upon years? I wasn’t the one who thought that was a good idea for our nation. That is not “free market capitalism.” That is the destructive power of greed and aristocratic power without fetter.

But, who did do that? Lets’ see – when I look around now – aren’t those the same corporate raiders and their groupies that are setting policy right now in the Republican Party and in the Tea Party and in the conservative thinktanks? Aren’t they they same bunch that have been running this nation into the ground for the last thirty years?  Why, yes it is. How about that.

And, aren’t they the same ones who demanded the Republicans’ budget cuts made this last week, further decimating our economy? And, further decimating America’s families, children, individuals and communities at a time when there simply are no jobs available to get on their feet? And, then aren’t these the same corporate jackasses and Republican conservatives who turned to the American people and blamed them for the entire economic meltdown, the financial fiasco and the entire budget deficit and debt of the United States and every state in the Union?

Why – yes, I believe it is the same ones doing all those things. And Americans pour money on them like it was water. They hover by their radios to hear them tell it the way it is “supposed to be told.” They send their church dollars to support Republicans, their veterans’ dollars to support them, their immigration policy support dollars to support the same ones, their family and community organizations’ dollars to support them and their business donations to underwrite them. And Americans repeat the words their political conservative Republican opinion leaders and operatives say as if those ideas are the gospel truth, no matter if those words are the absolute opposite of reality, which in anyone’s book would make those words, a lie.
