Fleecing the Angry Whites
  by Robert Perry


Since Nixon's "Southern strategy," the Republican Party has wooed angry whites with coded messages
designed to play to racial prejudices - and that pattern has come back strong in Campaign 2012 as the
GOP seeks to rid the White House of a black Democrat.
Usually, the dog whistle comes in appeals to "states' rights" and allusions to "welfare queens,"
but sometimes the implicit becomes explicit, as occurred when Santorum blurted out, "I don't want to
make black people's lives better by giving them somebody else's money. I want to give them the
opportunity to go out and earn the money."

However, Santorum quickly came to regret his caught-on-video frankness, realizing that many Americans
find racial prejudice offensive. So, he lied about what he actually said, claiming that he never said "black people"
- that he "started to say a word" and then "sort of mumbled it and changed my thought."

Santorum hoped he could have it both ways. The white racist voters in Iowa and in other states could hear
that he wasn't going to use government programs "to make black people's lives better," while non-racists
were supposed to believe that he simply stammered out a word that sounded like "black," but was really "blah."

OK, but who are the "non-racists" who might vote for Santorum?

As an Atheist, or more accurately a Gnostic, albeit a Rogue Gnostic, knowing as I do far more about these
ignorant dog-shit’s religion than they themselves know, I’d call it “Taking The Lord’s Name In Vain”.
As in “Thou Shalt Not.”

As I read the texts there is nothing “sinful” about saying “god-damn”, putting your hand on a bible and
“swearing to god” is the sin. Tebow pointing to the sky after a touchdown is the sin, praying for others’
deaths is the sin. "Using God’s name to make cheap political points" is the sin. Taking The Lord’s Name In Vain.

I, am above “sin”, and got no problem tossing the first rock.

Wasting time on can't-win Republicans
 by the Angry Liberal


Now that Bachmann, Trump, Cain and Gingrich have all experienced their relatively brief rise and fall
in what is the clownish GOP presidential race, may we please learn from the past and not spend too much
time on Santorum. He too will be forgotten in short-order as he has almost no shot of becoming the Republican
nominee, and even less of a shot of becoming the next president, so can we just not waste time profiling his
extreme positions and outrageous statements only to see him fade in the near future. Please?

I must confess, I watched a bit of Saturday's NH debate and hearing Romney trot out the red-meat lines
to please the hard-right GOP base, I continue to wonder if he's sort of winking to the rest of us more
moderate Americans, assuring us that he has to say this stuff to win the nomination but that he doesn't
really believe it so please don't be afraid. OR I wonder, does he actually believe these far-right positions
that he now claims to believe in??

Subject: Iran

U.S. Defense Secretary Leon Panetta let slip on Sunday the big open secret that Washington
war hawks don’t want widely known: Iran is not developing nuclear weapons.

Appearing on CBS’s Face the Nation on Sunday, Panetta admitted that despite all the rhetoric,
Iran is not pursuing the ability to split atoms with weapons, saying it is instead pursuing “a nuclear capability.”

That “capability” falls in line with what Iran has said for years:
that it is developing nuclear energy facilities, not nuclear weapons.

"I am going to kill my wife"
Dude promises judge he's going to do it


A man declared that he has hired an "assassin" to kill his ex-wife just before being sentenced to 70
years in prison for holding her hostage for more than 13 hours and burning down the home they shared.

Richard Shenkman, 62, was sentenced in Hartford, where a jury convicted him in October of 10 charges
including kidnapping, arson, assault and threatening. He faced a potential of nearly 80 years in prison.

At his hearing, Shenkman told Judge Julia Dewey that he has hired an experienced killer to murder Tyler.
The judge had rejected a motion by Shenkman's attorney to delay sentencing for psychological evaluation.

"When Nancy Tyler's lifeless body is lying in the morgue ... I will have made my point," Shenkman said.
"There is nothing this system can do to prevent Nancy Tyler's murder."

Sarah Palin Nude


"Dallas's running backs are like delicate, porcelain dolls. The secondary and offensive line
  look like sieves. Dez Bryant thinks wide receivers get new contracts for spending everything
  from their first one. Our quarterback ticked off some voodoo priest who now spends his
  Decembers stabbing the daylights out of his Tony Romo doll.   ha ha   And the team is owned
  by a megalomaniac who believes prowess as a college football player and oilman qualify him
  to be the only NFL owner with a general manager title. This, after two playoff wins in 15 years."
     --  CNN's Roland Martin, on those pitiful Cowboys      Link

  Here's the bottom line:  They cannot win with Tony Romo and Jerry Jones
  says he's sticking with Romo no matter how bad he is or how many games he loses.

  For a Cowboy hater, it doesn't get any better.

  PS. the Cowboys would've made the playoffs this year
  if their coach hadn't iced his own kicker on December 4th.

Slave homework upsets people


Third graders in in Gwinnett County, Ga., were given math homework that asked about slavery.

Christopher Braxton told WSB-TV in Atlanta that he couldn't believe the assignment his 8-year-old
son brought home from of Beaver Ridge Elementary school in Norcross.

"It kind of blew me away," Braxton said.

The question read, "Each tree had 56 oranges.
If eight slaves pick them equally, then how much would each slave pick?"

Another math problem read, "If Frederick got two beatings per day,
how many beatings did he get in one week?"

Another question asked how many baskets of cotton Frederick filled.

"I was furious at that point," Braxton said.

Roach said the teachers were attempting to incorporate social studies into math problems.

The only nation to have ever USED nukes in a hostile action has been the US.

If Iran gets one nuke what is the big deal?

Pat Robertson: "I'm a f-ing loon"
Claims God appeared to him, showed him the future


“I think He showed me about the next president, but I‘m not supposed to talk about that
so I’ll leave you in the dark — probably just as well — but I think I know who it’s gonna be,”
Robertson said on Tuesday‘s episode of the Christian Broadcast Network’s “700 Club.”

This is a new level of pure horseshit we haven''t seen before.

First, why would God trust a crooked scumbag like you with some secret, Pat?

Second, if God personally told you something, you can drop the "I think" crap.
Christ, he's f-ing GOD, he's supposed to be sure of his facts.

Third, why did God tell YOU the big secret, then say it's OK to talk about it,
but you can't tell anyone what HE said.  Tell the truth, Pat, you can't say because
your prediction will likely be wrong and that'd make GOD wrong - can't have that.

Here's more of what God told the crooked, racist scumbag:

"Your president holds a radical view of the direction of
  your country which is at odds with the majority."

Hey Pat, that was Newt Gingrich, not God.
Can you ttell the two of them apart?

"Your president holds a view which is at the odds with the majority
   — it’s a radical
view of the future of this country...."

Really, Pat?  Is God a racist scumbag, like you?
Is God a Teabagger with racist feelings, Pat?

Why would God hate the beings he created?

Subject: Huntsman and NH Primary

Having lived in Utah for 12 years--which puts me here throughout the entire duration of Huntsman
tenure as governor--I hope to (Insert Deity) that Huntsman does surge and gain greater media focus. 

He is the moderate and pragmatist we need to open dialogue during the campaign season this year. 
He could have great exchanges with Obama and show the United States' voting block some real issues
with accompanying respectful debates. 

His roll as Ambassador to China under Obama will bring focus to currency and trade problems with
the blooming giant of Asia.  If only Huntsman could take the GOP nomination...
