I’m disappointed in Democrats, and you should be too!

It’s been almost 2 weeks since the mid-term elections, and I’ve taken that time to figure out what could have possibly happened and who dissapointed me the most.

What I’ve discovered is that I’m irratated at a number of different segments of the Democatic Party on different levels.

Vote Your HeartDemocratic Candidates:

Alison Lundergan Grimes was the worst offender (I might have voted against her myself had I lived in Kentucy), but most, if not all of the Democratic candidates were a huge disappointment.

  • Why did the Democrats run away from the huge accomplishments the democrats have achieved over the past 6 years?
  • Why did the Democrats not stand proudly with our President?
  • Why did the Democrats not tell the country what the Democrats stand for?
  • Why did the Democrats not make it clear that it’s the Republicans that have been STOPPING all of the Democratic legislation that would have made life a lot better for the Middle Class?
  • Why did the Democrats not make it clear that the Republicans vote again and again for policies that TAKE AWAY RIGHTS and FAVOR THE 1%?

Where would we be now if they had?

Apparently these candidates don’t realize how disloyal the voters think they are.

Hey Democratic Candidates and Democratic members of Congress, when a reporter asks you a question, speak from your heart, no matter where you fall on an issue. We want honest politicians, not people who speak and vote always with a calculation in thier head of what will happen in the next election based on what they say or how they vote. SPEAK and VOTE with integrity and heart. That’s what Democratic voters want. We expect better than that.

Democratic Women are the life of the party

Women Voters:

What can I say about the Women voters? Regardless if you are a Democrat or a Republican, you have allowed the Republicans to continue the War on Women. Our reproductive rights are being systematically taken away state after state and we have missed a huge opportunity to make our voices heard. Even if we couldn’t vote these neanderthal self rightous white men out of office, we have the power to make the races close enough to scare than straight.

What is one of the first bills put forward in the House of Representatives every session? A bill banning Abortion. Women have it in their power to completely change the Congress every 2 years, and the way this country is funtioning, but we don’t step up.

What are we thinking?

Minority Voters:

I  know how disallusioned some of you must be by the lack of progress being made to make your lives better, but you have to understand why progress isn’t happening. The Republicans are the ones taking away Women’s rights, Voters rights and obstructing bills in Congress that the Democratic Party have put forth to create jobs, raise the minumum wage and generally make life better for the Middle Class.

But what was the result of the election?

Minority votes took out their frustration by not voting. This tactic doesn’t solve anything. In fact, by not voting, you just made your own lives WORSE. The obstruciton will now continue by the Republicans unabated.

Minority voters had the power, even in the deep south Red states to take over both Houses of Congress. You had real change in the palm of your hands and chose to turn your back on President Obama and the Democratic Party.

Your Vote Counts 2016YOUR VOTE is the only power you have to change things for the better. NOT voting silences you completely.

The Democratic Base:

I’m hoping that this is the one segment of the Democratic Party that voted in the mid-terms, I know I did. How do we turn this around? How do we energize the Women and Minority voters?

Now What?

For the next 2 years we have to suck it up and let the Republicans be Republicans. Hopefully they will wield thier power into a total melt down. They are drunk with power, we have given them the rope, now we wait for them to hang themselves. They may give us lip service, but they will never vote against the nastiness of their hearts.

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):

Romney Hood, I couldn’t resist

Romney HoodI must confess, I’ve been a little caught up in the Olympics and have had my politics in small doses for the past few days, but this I could not resist.

When I heard President Obama talking about Mitt Romney’s tax plan and called it Romney Hood, I thought I was going to lose it.

Earlier tonight I was watching Chris Matthews and saw this great image by Winston Smith of DailyKos.com and couldn’t resist a quick blog post.

Thanks Mitt for the inspiration to turn off the Olympics for a few minutes.

By the way, does anyone know why trampoline and table tennis are Olympic Sports?
