Does anyone even mention the “Contract With America” anymore? Trust me, if the shoe was on the other foot, todays media would be all over the Democrats asking, ” Just how has that contract turned out?

The mantra of Republican ideology since the days of Reagan has been “less government, more prosperity”. Twenty years ago through ONE month ago, you could not have had a conversation with a Republican about the economy without them saying “there’s too much government regulation/involvement in our lives. If government gets out the way, businesses can do what they need to do to keep the economy growing.”

For the past two years, the Democrats have had a slim majority in Congress. They can’t even pass anything strong enough to override a Presidential veto. Prior to this time frame, the first six years of Dupya’s Presidency was controlled by Republicans who had a decided majority in Congress. They passed bills that were shaped by their ideology of “less government, more prosperity” at their leisure. The only tool Democrats had  against the Republican majority during that time was the use of the filibuster. To take this even further, Congress was also controlled by Republican’s during the entire 8 years of the Clinton Administration.

Today, Republicans (though the minority in Congress) don’t even have to use a filibuster on Capitol Hill. They don’t need it. They have enough votes at anytime to vote down anything the Democrats bring up. They have passed legislation that has given tax breaks that along with the war in Iraq, has driven the budget deficit to record proportions. The Bush Administration has put political appointees in every administrative position in all government agencies that workto prevent the proper functioning of these agencies.

When Advocates Become Regulators President Bush has installed more than 100 top officials who were once lobbyists, attorneys or spokespeople for the industries they oversee.

The mantra of less government has been the drum that has been beat on by Republicans. Now they are saying that more regulation is needed and that it is just as much the Democrats fault as it is theirs that the country is nearing a “Great Depression”, no recession. WTF?

All within one weeks time. And your judgement is better then Obama’s? THE ONLY REASON THIS IS A CONTEST IS BECAUSE OBAMA’S BLACK! This topic will be talked about for decades to come.

McCain, Palin and ALL REPUBLICANS are jokes. The problem is, the people they hurt are not laughing. But some of them are stupid enough to be baited by Fox News racists leads and their life time hatred of blacks into supporting the very fools that work against them everyday! REPUBLICANS!

It’s incredible. I’m really not surprised by this though. “Psst. He’s a black guy” is rearing it’s head. That crap about Obama would not have gotten where he is if he were a white guy is just that, crap. In fact, what very well might keep him from getting where he wants to be (President) is the fact that HE IS BLACK.

I believe now what Hillary was saying about “people kidding themselves about the Celestial Showers coming down on Barack” is coming to fruition.

The fact that Hillary’s very supporters would be willing to sound a war cry for people to vote for McCain over Obama is chilling. BECAUSE THEY DID NOT GET WHAT THEY WANTED (HILLARY FOR NOMINEE) THEY ARE REALLY READY TO CONTINUE LIVING UNDER REPUBLICAN RULE FOR ANOTHER 4 YEARS.?!#$%

In-freakin-cridible!

Really, the ONLY reason this is happening is because Obama is BLACK. Period. IF Obama were a white guy, do you really think Clinton supporters would be saying “Vote for McCain” because Hillary was screwed? If you do, your full of you know what.

Basically, if all it took to get you fools to vote for McCain was to put the female Ted Nugent from Alaska as his running mate, I feel sorry for you and I feel sorry for this country if the “Maverick” wins and the Republicans remain in power in the White House.

Where is Hillary Clinton? Isn’t she the best person to hit back at the Palin Agenda that McCains campaign is waging against the Obama Campaign. I’ll say this. If she does not come out and address the Palin Bounce and meet it head on, Obama’s toast.

Clearly, she’s holding a grudge against Obama. Hell, for the matter, where’s Bill Clinton when it comes to commentary/takes on the Palin Agenda? It’s clear they are on the sidelines still smarting from loosing the nomination.

Obama’s got to take it though. He surely should have known that this was coming after not picking Hillary as VP, let alone beating her for the nomination.

For some reason, Billary seems like the “I told you so” types.” Letting the phony Palin Agenda succeed long enough to allow Hilary to set up the type of “political comeback” role I think she is plotting by letting the Palin Agenda go unchallenged by the only REAL “change minded/maverick” female politician, Hillary herself.

The McCain-Palin ticket is the phrase that reads the same backwards as Bush-Chaney. And no, there’s no “lite” attached. Except that it’s really “Palin-McCain”.

I’ve posted on this in the past and I’ll touch on it again. Americans, a vast majority of white ones at that, are serious gluttens for punishment.

Quite simply, it was the same “undecided” whtie citizens who voted for Bush during the second of W’s terms, who are now being swayed by Sarah “Smile” Palin’s addition to McCains ticket. This Palin “VPILF” crap appeals exactly to what McCains strategist are counting on. The immaturity of the American White Male that thinks with their libido and not with their brains…

Not talked about in serious context, George W. Bush is a perfect case study on the adolescent mindset of the 21st Century American White Male. Take a look at what types of roles/stars are revered by this segment of society in todays movies . Adam Sandler. Jim Carey. Chris Farley. Owen Wilson. Ben Stiller. Jack Black. Vince Vaughn. Will Ferrell. All White Males who play(ed) characters who have not quite grown up yet, though their clearly in their 30’s/40’s. These guys movies are all about connecting with this segment of the American population.

Fox News knows what makes these guys tick. Want their attention? Get it with a “hot babe” as your talking piece. Doesn’t matter if she has no substance. As long as she’s articulate, “hot”, nice rack AND there’s no internet dirt on her, she’s good to go. “We’ll give her the talking points and she’ll deliver the ratings… No experience par for the job needed.

Our media had the gall to criticize China for replacing the not so pretty 7 year old singer of the opening Bejing Olympics with one that fit their idea of what was pretty.

China’s official stance was, ““The national interest requires that the girl should have good looks and a good grasp of the song and look good on screen”

Where’s the medias criticism for the GOP’s 21st Century model for success: “The national interest of the party requires that the woman should have good looks, a good grasp of “Republican propaganda crap” and look good on screen.”

And Palin hits the spot.

As the Chinese replacement “lip synced” the words to “Ode to the Motherland”, Palin will speak pre-rehearsed republican propaganda about liberals, religion and taking America Back into a mic.

My question is; taking back American from who? Your own party that has F’d things up the past 7.5 years?

You can put lip stick on an elephant, but it’s still a big ole stinking elephant. Hows that!

My post a week or so ago on “What’s Wrong With Blacks” was met with attacks by blacks who blog about the lack of a focus on white acts of racism and their double standards.

My facts focus on how WE act within our own communities and our lack of respect for one another and how slack we are on calling out our own.

Now I got Stockholm Syndrome?

I’ll tell you what I got.

I got passion for my people that tells me that we equal whenever the playing fields level. Hell, one might even say we’re superior.

I’m not hearing ya when you say the only way to better our own is by tapping on the keyboard about the wrongs those fools keep perpetrating on us. Why?

Cause they ain’t hearing you! But really, i do. It’s just that I want to say more about how we cause our own sores in the community that we all live in.  I do this while also understanding that the core of our problems is still the man.

That’s all brotha sista (my fault). When I say “Focus Man” (or in your case, “Woman”), I say that cause you doing the work of the man, not me, by coming after someone who see’s that his little black angels will have slim pickin’s for a mate.

Take the time to see where someone is coming from before you judge. Isn’t that ONE of the problems WE have with them?

Essentially, you are the type of person who would actually vote for George W. Bush TWICE if you believe the McCain Campaign:

  1. Decided after the vetting process that Sarah Palin had a 17 year old unwed daughter that was 5 months pregnant and concluded that she was just the quality VP choice needed for him win against Barack Obama.
  2. Knew that Palin’s daughters boyfriend and unborn child’s father, Levi Johnston, had a MySpace page that proclaimed he’s a redneck and “don’t want kids” and decided it was O.K. for him to keep it up and going well after the pick was made/announced.
  3. Decide to (and no doubt through Sarah Palins direction ) tell Johnston to abruptly take the cite down AFTER the press finds out about it and reports on it.

Quite simply, McCain shot from the hip on this decision. The same type of hip shot that Bush did when he choose people like Michael Brown to head FEMA. Or Benard Kerik to head THE FRICKIN DEPARTMENT OF HOMELAND SECURITY.

McCain nor his people in NO Way knew of these issues when they chose Palin.  I DON’T CARE WHAT THEY SAY.

Republicans are the kings of steer. They are briefing their troops on how to answer questions about Palin. If they bothered vetting Palin in the first place surely they would have decided that she was just too risky a pick in a time when they needed a home run pick. Plain and simple, they did a horrible job of vetting the choice. YOU CANNOT TELL ME THERE IS NOT ANOTHER REPUBLICAN WOMAN OUT THERE THAT DOES NOT HAVE THIS KIND OF BAGGAGE WHO WOULD NOT HAVE BEEN A BETTER VP CHOICE THEN PALIN!

Take a look at the product the GOP has put out as it’s finest during the Bush Administration:

GEORGE W. BUSH

MICHAEL BROWN

DICK CHANEY

DONALD RUMSFIELD

LINDA CHAVEZ

PAUL WOLFOWITZ

TOM DELAY

ALBERTO GONZALEZ

So many others…

These are the types of people we will continue to have placed in positions of the federal government that affect our very lives if John McCain is elected President.

Forget about Palin’s kids. It’s her political background that links her to the list of fools above:

  • Troopergate
  • Firing police chiefs because town businesses felt he was hurting their business ENFORCING THE LAW!
  • Saying she’s against earmarks when her time as Mayor AND Governor was/is marked by her lobbying efforts for and receiving earmarks.
  • Campaigning for and eliminating funding for teen pregnancy prevention programs and instead spouting off about “abstinence” is enough for teen pregnancy prevention.

Which brings me back to her kids.

Palin has made a political career of spouting off about how she is against abortion and funding in schools that teach teens about safe sex. It’s because of these types of stances that makes Palin’s 17 year old daughter being pregnant because she did not practice absitnence nor safe sex a ligitimate topic for voters know about while conducting their own “vetting” process in choosing who to vote for for President. The very center of the voter vetting process of John McCain now begs the question, “What was McCain Thinking?”

For some reason, Republicans refuse to understand that we are in the age of the internet. You can’t just come out with a press conference or have cronnies go on Sunday talk shows and successfully gloss over factual dirt that is reported on the internet like you could in the 90’s and earlier times. BECAUSE THERE WAS NO MYSPACE AND OTHER TYPES OF INTERNET MEDIA VENUES DURING THOSE TIMES  LIKE THERE ARE TODAY!
