Joe Scarbourgh and Mika Brzezinski on Morning JoeI want to say right up front, on a normal day, I do not agree with Joe Scarborough on just about anything, and normally spend my mornings mad tweeting him repeatedly. Today, much to my surprise, I was twitter silent because, for once, I agreed with him completely.

One day after the Senate voted down the background check bill by 6 votes, many people are predicting, me included, that every member of the Senate who voted NO and is up for re-election in 2014 will be defeated.  This prediction excludes Harry Reid who voted no so that he can reintroduce the bill at a later date.

Today on Morning Joe, Joe Scarbourgh stated “This will be a turning point in the Republican Party…this party that killed this background check yesterday; this party is moving toward extinction.  A new Republican Party is going to replace it and this is going to be a vote that people are going to look back on and say ‘that party, that extremism, that was unsustainable.'”

Watch Joe Scarbourgh, Mika Brzezinski,  Mark Halpern, Willie Geist, Howard Dean and Mike Barnicle on MSNBs Morning Joe this morning:

What’s it going to take to get our DO NOTHING Congress to pass common sense gun legislation to keep our Country safe? They have already had one of their own, Gabby Gifford, shot in a mass shooting in Arizona, and they DID NOTHING! 20 children and 6 adults shot in Newtown, and they DO NOTHING!

That’s it, we now have to take matters into our own hands. WE NEED TO VOTE THEM OUT OF OFFICE!

Now our work begins, we must see that the following members of the United States Senate are voted out of office at the first opportunity (we’ll take care of the House in another post) and replaced with common sense Democrats:

Dear Red States … From the rest of Us

Dear Red States ... From the rest of Us Dear Red States:

We’re ticked off at your Neanderthal attitudes and politics and we’ve decided we’re leaving.

We in New York intend to form our own country and we’re taking the other Blue States with us.

In case you aren’t aware that includes California, Hawaii, Oregon, Washington, Minnesota, Wisconsin, Michigan, Illinois and the rest of the Northeast.

We believe this split will be beneficial to the nation and especially to the people of the new country of The Enlightened States of America (E.S.A).

To sum up briefly:

  • You get Texas, Oklahoma and all the slave states. 
  • We get stem cell research and the best beaches. 
  • We get Andrew Cuomo and Elizabeth Warren.
  • You get Bobby Jindal and Todd Akin.
  • We get the Statue of Liberty.
  • You get OpryLand.
  • We get* Intel* and Microsoft.
  • You get WorldCom.
  • We get Harvard (*Princeton, Penn, Haverford, Colgate, U of R)*,.
  • You get Ole’ Miss.
  • We get 85 percent of America’s venture capital and entrepreneurs.
  • You get Alabama.
  • We get two-thirds of the tax revenue.
  • You get to make the red states pay their fair share.
  • Since our aggregate divorce rate is 22 percent lower than the Christian Coalition’s, we get a bunch of happy families.
  • You get a bunch of single moms..

With the Blue States in hand we will have firm control of 80% of the country’s fresh water, more than 90% of the pineapple and lettuce, 92% of the nation’s fresh fruit, *95% of America’s quality wines* (you can serve French wines at state dinners) 90% of all cheese, 90 percent of the high tech industry, most of the US low sulfur coal, all living redwoods, sequoias and condors, all the Ivy and Seven Sister schools plus Harvard, Yale, Stanford, Cal Tech and MIT.

With the Red States you will have to cope with 88% of all obese Americans and their projected health care costs, 92% of all US mosquitoes, nearly 100% of the tornadoes, 90% of the hurricanes, 99% of all Southern Baptists, virtually 100% of all televangelists, Rush Limbaugh, Bob Jones University, Clemson and the University of Georgia.

We get Hollywood and Yosemite, thank you.

38% of those in the Red states believe Jonah was actually swallowed by a whale, 62% believe life is sacred unless we’re discussing the death penalty or gun laws, 44% say that evolution is only a theory, 53% that Saddam was involved in 9/11 and 61% of you crazy bastards believe you are people with higher morals than we lefties.

We’re taking the good weed too. You can have that crap they grow in Mexico.

Beau Biden – Mitt Romney Lies 24 Times in 41 Minutes at Debate

Mitt Romney, 24 lies in 41 minutesDo you love the Biden men as much as I do? You have to love someone who speaks his mind and the honest truth at the same time (this is a lesson for you Mitt).

On Morning Joe today, broadcast in my town, from Racks in Boca Raton, Florida. Biden spoke the truth about Mitt Romney. He spoke of not just his debate performance last night in the third Presidential Debate, but also about Mitt as a man and his lack of integrity.

As we already know, Mitt Romney lies about everything, today Beau Biden calls him out.  

Attorney General Beau Biden tells America that Mitt Romney will say anything to get elected. His own home state doesn’t support him and he’s not even campaigning there. What does it say when the population of the only state where Mitt Romney has ever governed, in the only election he has ever won in 20 years of trying, don’t want anything to do with him?

Watch a clip of Beau Biden (view the clip of the entire segment below):

My Tweets to Current TV Came True!

Posted on : 31-08-2012 | By : vlramirez | In : John Fugelsang, Joy Behar, People with Common Sense

I used to watch Joy Behar on HLN every night, I never missed it. The Joy Behar Show introduced me to John Fugelsang, a New York based comedian.  Make no mistake, both Joy and John take their politics very seriously, but at the same time they both add such a quick wit to their comments and interviews that it’s a bit addictive.

I followed both Joy and John on Twitter and guess what?  John followed me back. He’s my only celebrity Twitter follower.

When The Joy Behar Show was cancelled on HLN I was devastated, so I tweeted her. 

The final show was hilarious. In a skit reminicent of the finale of the Bob Newhart Show, Joy ended up in bed with Republican, Joe Scarborough of MSNBC. You can see Bob Newhart’s picture on the nightstand next to Joy. This was so unexpected, Joy a liberal ending up in bed with a Republican.  Joy, that’s not a dream, it’s a nightmare!


 After The Joy Behar Show was over, I made my first tweet to Current TV.


On March 30th, Current TV fired Keith Olberman and a few days later replaced him with Elliot Spitzer.  This called for a double tweet so I could say everything I need to say.

Then a few months later, unbelievably, part of my tweet to Current TV came true.



Then John Fugelsang started showing up on CNN, MSNBC and all over Current TV and amazingly, this happened.




Do you think Current TV was talking to me when said “Your wish has been granted!”? Even though they didn’t mention me in their tweet, I’m taking total responsibility for both Joy Behar and John Fugelsang getting Prime Time shows on Current TV.

May your wishes come true too!!
