Donald Trump speaks to shrunken Atlanta crowd as poll numbers drop
Hopefully people are realizing what he is all about. For himself and the hell with everyone else.
Dad was a Democrat
Mom was a Republican
I’m a happy camper
not to belong to
a political party
to run for
what you want
It seems its
are loose cannons
Stand back 300 feet
so that the bullshit
won’t hit you

all politics can do is keep us out of war.”
“It is dangerous to be right in matters on which the established authorities are wrong.”
“Politics is the art of looking for trouble, finding it everywhere, diagnosing it incorrectly and applying the wrong remedies.”

Whoever controls the media, controls the mind.
I would like to say that I am an Independent, which I should have noted in the post about political ads. I have been an Independent for the 40 plus years. Never wanted to be labeled a Democrat or Republican.
I don’t like anyone telling me who I should vote for, nor what issues I should agree/disagree with. No Fox News. No MSNBC, and/or anything else. I can form my own opinion. Some may like it, some not, and I won’t lose sleep over it.
Be thankful we’re not getting all the government we’re paying for.
Madness is rare in individuals – but in groups,
political parties, nations, and eras it’s the rule.
Dogs make you walk.
Politics makes you think.
Only boredom makes you old.

Here is the list of my dislikes, and some of them will have reasons for why I do.
Snobby people: A big turn off, as they talk and act like their shit don’t stink. Well it does stink.
People who park their cars right across an entire crosswalk, and have no consideration for pedestrians, and the wheelchair bound.
Politicians: The ones that couldn’t give a rat’s ass about the people who put them in office, but will kiss the big banks, corporations and the oil companies asses. Also, the blow hards who make ridiculous statements, re: doing away with minimum wage, cut backs or deny food stamps for the needy.
Food: I detest lamb, big time. Can’t stand the smell of it when it is being cooked. I will turn around and walk out the door. I’ll add that it is way too greasy.
Other food added to the list: Yogurt, turnips, eggplant, black olives, and artificial sweeteners.
Sports: Watching a sporting event on TV, I don’t mind two in the booth, one doing the play-by-play, and the color man. But when there is three, then they seem to be talking over each other, and sometimes it seems to go on and on, and half time they make no sense. That does piss me off, and ready to throw a shoe at the television.
News: I hate Fox News, and most of the other network news, as it seems to have gone done the toilet. Most of it is nothing more but puff pieces, instead of real hardcore news, and not really telling the truth.
Internet trolls: Idiots who would rather slam the shit out of something a person rights, instead of posting a halfway decent comment. They’re nothing but boring people, who would praise the likes of Limbaugh, Beck, and others of their ilk.
Ads on TV: There are quite a few of them, that turn me off, as they seem to talk down to people.
Speaking of ads, I was watching the baseball game, and lo and behold, they slide ads across the screen,
last only a few seconds, and I’m wondering, do really need to have them bombarding us with ads, for almost anything that is sold on the market. Plus the stadiums with ads plastered all over the walls, and on top of the parks.
Religion: I’m not against religion, but I don’t like it rammed down my throat, and I really don’t like talking about it.
Those are some of the things in life, that I dislike. There are more, but I will leave it at that.
What do our opponents mean when they apply to us the label
Liberal? If by Liberal they mean, as they want people to believe,
someone who is soft in his policies abroad, who is against local
government, and who is unconcerned with the taxpayer’s dollar,
then … we are not that kind of Liberal. But if by a Liberal
they mean someone who looks ahead and not behind, someone
who welcomes new ideas without rigid reactions, someone who
cares about the welfare of the people — their health, their
housing, their schools, their jobs, their civil rights, and
their civil liberties — someone who believes we can break
through the stalemate and suspicions that grip us in our policies
abroad, if that is what they mean by a Liberal, then I’m proud
to say I’m a Liberal.
— John F. Kennedy
The above quote by the 35th President of the US, should be heeded
by the right-wingers, and the so-called Tea Party politicians. Sadly
it is not their want. They rather see people lose their jobs, deny them
health care, food and other necessities of life.
They get their jollies off, bashing the current president, repeatedly
lying for just about everything he says and does. It just doesn’t make
any sense at all.
I could go on, but I’m sure you’ll get what I am saying.
Quote found on Wisdom Quotes
In religion and politics people’s beliefs and convictions
are in almost every case gotten at second-hand, and without
examination, from authorities who have not themselves
examined the questions at issue but have taken them at
second-hand from other non-examiners, whose opinions
about them were not worth a brass farthing.
— Mark Twain
Democracy is the art and science of running the circus from the monkey cage.
– H.L. Mencken
Although it is not true that all conservatives are stupid people, it is true that most stupid people are conservative.
– John Stuart Mill (1806-1873)
The only thing we learn from new elections is we learned nothing from the old.
– American Saying
The whole aim of practical politics is to keep the populace alarmed (and hence clamorous to be led to safety) by menacing it with an endless series of hobgoblins, all of them imaginary.
– H.L. Mencken
Mitt Romney is sticking to what he said, that FEMA should be done away with, and let the states and or the private sector take over. You know what that would be like if the private sector was running it. It would make any disaster more worse, than what actual mayhem and destruction it already created.

Mitt Romney has a chat with this 63 gay Viet Nam War Veteran, and lets say it didn’t go to well for Romney.
When President Obama stopped in at the Big Apple Pizza in Ft. Pierce, Florida, he was greeted with a hug and lifted up in the air by the owner, Scott Van Duzer. Because of what Duzer did, he is getting a lot of flack from the Republican crazies, who need to get a life, and stop acting like the pathetic assholes that they are.
When I first heard that Romney picked Paul Ryan to be his running mate, this had the Koch Brothers all over it. In an well written Op-Ed by Danny Weil of Truthout, spells out what the Koch Brothers are up to. Read it at Truthout. The link is below the pic.
Porn Star Jenna Jameson endorsed Mitt Romney, the 2012 Republican candidate for President. The reason she says is, “when your rich, you want a Republican in office.” Now, one has to wonder what Mittens has to say about this, and will be red in the face.

Mitt Romney’s traveling press secretary Rick Gorka has no class at all, telling reporters to “kiss my ass.” It seems that Romney refuses to answer any questions from reporters, other than the ones at Fox News, which isn’t saying much, as they will ask him the softball questions, nothing to hard, cause that teax Mitt’s brain, and spew out even more gaffes.

Now that Mitt Romney is in London, he has made so many gaffes, that it isn’t even funny. One of them was, that he told reporters, that he met with the leader of MI6 which is like the CIA. In Britain that’s a no-no. It’s supposed to be kept quiet.
Mitt is a walking-talking disaster.

What made Bill Clinton make a statement, calling for the Bush era tax cuts be extended. Of course the orange coated John Boehner was all giddy, along with the other GOPers. Now the Obama White House is quite pissed about it, and I don’t blame them one bit, as Obama has been wanting the rich to pay more taxes.
I am proud of the Marine Sgt, from NYC giving the cops in Times Square a good piece of his mind. He’ s Sgt. Shamar Thomas, of Roosevelt, NY
Here’s the story in the Boston globe concerning Barack Obama’s long form birth certificate, and it has a picture of it.

The White House has announced that they will release President Barack Obama’s long form birth certificate today.
What will the Tea Party and the ‘birther nuts’ do now? I can imagine Fox News will have asinine things to say about it.
