They have succeeded in shutting down our government protesting AN ALREADY SIGNED LAW WHICH GIVES AMERICANS MORE AFFORDABLE AND WIDELY AVAILABLE HEALTH CARE.
The Tea Party is America's public enemy number 1. They need to be stopped. Democrats and Republicans need to stand together and shut them down. NOW! Ted Cruz? PUHLEEZE! That man shouldn't lead carnival won fish.
Yall...we have to stop this. You need to find out what's going on in your state and work to keep them out of office. We're stuck with some for now...but they will have to be re-elected. DON'T LET THAT ISH HAPPEN! VOTE THEIR AZZES OUT WHENEVER YOU HAVE THE OPPORTUNITY!
I can't believe this ish is going down. I can't believe we are being held hostage by domestic terrorists and folks expect us to negotiate through this ish. We don't negotiate with terrorists right?
At least that's what I always thought as an American.
Obama...I need yall to stand oak mighty. Don't negotiate with them. THEY ARE TERRORISTS. Let the American people, at large, finally see those fuckers as they really and truly are. A bunch of ignorant bullies who only give a damn about what they want, which is NOT what the majority CLEARLY wants.
By now you've heard that Mrs. Obama left her lectern and walked up on a rude gay rights activist who was yelling at her her during her speech. Mrs. Obama stared at her azz and went all cold and direct on her.
"One of the things I don't do well is this. Listen to me or you can take the mic, but I'm leaving. You all decide. You have one choice."
Everyone is well aware of what is going on in Boston today, I'm sure. You can't get away from it and well...maybe you shouldn't. I like to be informed. I just don't care for the constant talking about nothing pretending you're talking about something. And...I don't like seeing pictures of bloody and/or dead Americans.
This morning I heard that Boston is on a straight up for real lock down and two things popped up in my head.
1. I knew that shooting at MIT last night before we went to bed was related.
2. Wait...WASN'T PRESIDENT OBAMA IN BOSTON JUST YESTERDAY FOR THE MEMORIAL SERVICES AND THESE TERRORISTS ARE RUNNING AROUND WEARING BOMBS AND SHIT?????????
And the latter REALLY disturbed me.
The manhunt for the 19 year old terrorist is ongoing and I'm confident they are going to get him. They are not playing around. I feel like the terrorist is going to try and go out with a bang but honestly...I hope they catch him alive because he probably has so much more information that would be useful.
See look...you've seen the pictures. They weren't trying to hide. They looked pretty confident in those pictures. For them to be that way while pulling this off and then carjacking people and trying to use their debit card for cash and robbing a 7-11 sounds to me like somebody didn't uphold their side of the plan and left them hanging so they were desperate.
I want the authorities to know who those people are too.
This is the world we live in where these people are sleeper terrorists in plain view and well...there is nothing we will ever be able to do about that. When we find some of them, however, we should try and find as many of them as possible and eradicate those cells.
I was talking to some people recently being polite. The subject turned to politics and I was about to bail because I wasn't in the mood for a fight with strangers and people I don't know well. One of the men was someone I'd stereotyped as being a Romney supporter in my head and he said something that surprised all of us:
"First time I voted Democrat was in 2008 and that was for Barack Obama.
I officially switched parties two years ago because of what the Tea Party has done to the Republican party. They don't represent me or the way me and my family live our life and I'm not about to let them think they do. The Tea Party ruined the Republican party."
Basically he thinks the same way I think, the Republican Party of 2000 is NOT the Republican Party of 2012.
I'm a woman who believes in pro-life for ME and pro-choice for others.
I believe women should have access to early detection screening for cancer.
I believe if you're sick, you shouldn't be left to fend for yourself.
I believe big business needs to be regulated so they are not allowed to rob our economy.
I believe the percentage of taxes you pay should be the same across the board.
I believe big businesses who make billions in profits should pay the same percentage of taxes that small business owners pay.
I believe companies who send jobs overseas in order to pay less in salaries should be dealt with appropriately.
I believe people should be able to marry who they love.
I believe our education system needs a major rehaul.
I believe college kids need much more help paying for college.
I searched for the origin of this picture and can't find it so it is probably photoshopped. I remembered the outfit and thought she'd simply recycled it and gave us some curly hair to ga-ga over and posted the pic because it made me happy.
That said...this is one HECK of a good photoshop job! LOL!
Yesterday we attended the Ravens' football game. We were very excited and happy. You know...looking forward to the game.
Earlier last week...we became aware of a credible threat to mark the anniversary of 9/11.
Yesterday was 9/11.
And here is why it was such a big deal to us...
Because this administration hasn't slammed us with the words "credible threat" whenever they need a big political pull. Seriously. They haven't played that game. They haven't cried wolf and tried to keep us all messed up using fear mongering.
So we took that seriously and we were in hightened security mode while there because that's what we were SUPPOSED to do.
See...they get threats every.single.day. They could very well put that out there every.single.day. But they don't. They do their jobs to ensure the threats are contained and handled. THEY DO THEIR JOBS.
So yeah...when they put it out there...knowing they don't use it to make folks tow some line...I listen.
And so should you.
And we will ALL be safer because they use this authority WISELY.
Well...it was a rough night politicially for Democrats and an even ROUGHER morning listening to and reading all the analysis and stats. We've sufficiently gone BACK in time. ROFL! (I laugh so I can't cry.)
The winners, the losers, Boehner vowing to destroy the Healthcare bill, etc.
I blame Obama.
I blame him for doing all that damn pandering to the Republicans and acting like he has a brain in his head instead of fighting dirty, slinging shit and kicking azz and taking names.
He proved that you just can't do it the way you SHOULD be able to do it.
You can only do it the fugged up way.
And being in politics...he should have KNOWN this. You can't be a good guy in politics man.
