Have the right wingers come up with any solutions to our nation’s problems yet?

Well, there’s a loaded question and I’m sure the neocons will come running out of the woodwork today to tell us how to create jobs, how to fix our health care system, and how to be a good citizen now that Scott Brown is walking on water as you read this sentence! Seriously, all I hear is bitching, complaining, and whining from the right wingers. Do they have any answers? Not that I can see. Let me know if you hear of one. Maybe if we all rubbed and stroked Scott Brown’s business suit the answers would come easily and our nation will be saved? Huh. Maybe.

Here’s a copy and paste that is going around Facebook that ended up on mine yesterday after a friend posted it to her Facebook page:

Shame on you America: the only country where we have homeless without shelter, children going to bed without eating, elderly going without needed meds, and mentally ill without treatment – yet we have a benefit for the people of Haiti on 12 TV stations. 99% of people won’t have the guts to copy and repost this

It truly pissed me off! I created two posts after I saw it…

“I laugh when I read that some are against helping the Haitians when we Americans don’t help each other out, but if you mention a public insurance option for Americans to purchase with no preexisting conditions, these same people scream “no way!”. WTH….”

“Should we care that there were 5-6,000 Americans killed in the Haitian earthquake or should we just lump them in with those “dirty Haitians” who don’t deserve our help in getting their loved ones out of the rubble and much needed water and food?”

Some Americans truly are stupid and it makes me sad that a couple of them are my friends on Facebook! *shudder* Anyway, I spent some time last night pointing out to the dummies that Haiti is extremely poor, their government is pretty much gone, and we as Americans must help them. Hell, it was the Haitian government that asked us to bring our military down there because they need us! The friend who originally posted her diatribe ended up doing a post apologizing to all she offended. Damn straight she did! I honestly don’t understand where the heart of Americans have gone. Apparently “Americans are barbarians” has stuck with them after 8 years of George Bush! Gees.

Our nation had 8 years of blatant fascism under George Bush and we’ve had a one year reprieve thanks to President Obama being in the White House, but what is most disturbing is an Animal Farm Revolution is underway again where the animals are demanding to go back to those 8 years of fascism because they believe it’s better and they’ll be happier! How many times do we have to tell the imbeciles of our country that whenever we have a republican president in the White House our nation goes into a recession, our money ends up missing in huge clumps, and we end up miserable and suffering? Huh? How many times? Give me a Democratic president who is bonking an intern in the Oval Office while creating 22 million jobs or a president who knows that one false move to the financial sector could cause Wall Street to retaliate could hurt us and that it’s going to take years to fix the messes George Bush wrought on our nation (slow progress is better than no progress!)! I’ll take those two any day of the week but one day of a fascist right wing president running our nation? No thanks!!!!!!!! A detriment to the sanctity of our nation!!!!!!

How was your weekend? We’re recovering from head colds in my house. :-)

  1. 20 Reasons Why The U.S. Economy May Never Recover after 8 years of George Bush:

    http://www.shtfplan.com/headli.....r_01242010

    If the top wealthy paid 80% (like they did under Reagan) in taxes, our nation could stay afloat. Goldman Sachs paid only 1% in taxes. Where’s the outrage?

    It’s time for President Obama to remove all of the Bush people in charge of America’s finances, because they are continuing to hurt our nation! Bernanke needs to go, Geithner needs to go,….

  2. Awesome post, K. Sorry to hear about the head colds, I’ve avoided one all winter, knock on wood.

    Had a great showing of the film in Detroit on Sunday, probably about 200 people and they really liked it. It was the best crowd reaction we’ve had yet.

    I’m playing sick today, so I can install a new garage door opener, big fun.

    Should be a better week for the president.

    • Wow Jim! So happy to hear that your documentary film is getting some action! Good for you. :-)

      Hi Kendra! *waving* I am just shocked at times when people in my real life decide to push out all rationality and spew their ridiculous hate! Ugh. Can’t stand it. My friend Julie most likely copied and pasted the post just because someone in her FB page did, but what pisses me off if she’s the type of person who does things like that to ‘be part of the group’. What an idiot. Me? I will make my opinion/voice known and don’t care if I lose friends over it! Gees.

      Grant, according to Bauer’s own theory the reason why his grandmother was uneducated is because she ate out of dog bowls because she’s an animal, see?

  3. Hey Ms. Kay! Hope you are getting better. It amazes me that there are those in this country that cannot imagine helping those that are in need both here and in Haiti and wherever they may be. That would cost too much BUT fund war here, there and everywhere and those same fools are all in. I really am not sure that we can recover, not from the Bush years but from the consistent dumbing down of the population. I am just not sure that people are able to get it anymore.

  4. South Carolina Lt. Governor, REPUBLICAN Andre Bauer thinks the good folk in his state should do away with feeding their poor people (whites too???) in his state who apply for food stamps, free or reduced-price school lunches, etc…

    “My grandmother was not a highly educated woman, but she told me as a small child to quit feeding stray animals,” Bauer told a Greenville-area crowd. “You know why? Because they breed.”

    The compassionate conservatives, so PRO-Life…. :twisted: Of course that is BEFORE folks are born, then let ‘em starve! What Would Jesus Do?

  5. Of course there is an answer, just no one listening.
    The crisis was not caused by the banks but by the housing market collapse which was the result of the government arm twisting to approve no doc mortgages, -0- down. Now we slap the banks for what the government made them do. I do not like banks but they are only taking advantage of what the government allows

    Give breaks to house buyers who cannot afford a house so we can increase failures.

    Give breaks to cash for crap so people who were going to by a car anyway can save money and everyone pays.

    The one thing that needs to happen is create jobs. Give a tax credit for hiring new employees. Something like 50% of first years income. Businesses are not hiring because of the uncertain conditions brought on by this administration.

    The change direction at the drop of a hat causes business owners to take a sit and wait attitude. I am for government healthcare but only if it has a single payer, like most civilized countries. Raising taxes on profitable companies is counterproductive and creating the “hate the producers” is also.

    It use to be people would strive to be in the upper income bracket, now they are a target for spite.

    • All loans originate with banks, Dummy Ralph. The housing market depends on it. The banks under George Bush TOOK ALL THE RISK. They lent out money they didn’t have to people who couldn’t pay it back, but they were okay with this kind of risk because they knew AIG would bundle up their toxic assets/default loans…insured them (AIG didn’t have money to cover these ‘insurance policies’ either! The Big Balloon!)….and then all the players made money offshore in hedge funds betting on failure knowing full well they were all betting on air!

  6. This task has sure slipped past the current administration so someone needs to step up.

    It will require creating jobs in the private sector.

    Cash for crap rewarded people who were going to buy a car anyhow, now everyone pays.

    Home buyer credit created a lot of future foreclosures just like no house left behind by Dodd and Frank.

    The government bailed out the banks, even those who didn’t need it, with no strings attached, like you have to make sensible loans with some money. Now the banks are using that money to pay bonuses and the administration is going to penalize them. Bankers are greedy and it is the administrations fault for not having stipulations in the loans.

    The healthcare bill was of no use without single payer, kinda like most civilized countries.

    The current administration has been so erratic with their policies that small businesses are sitting on the sidelines. They have created such a hatred and punish the successful that many small business owners are sitting hiring out.

    Why not give a 50% tax credit for hiring a new employee. Since most of the jobs in this country are from small businesses this would give an incentive to hire someone.
    Instill pride instead of scorn for success.
    Lessen the dependence on the government.

    • Ralph, how do you create jobs in the private sector after 8 years of Bush? Tax breaks/credits didn’t work.

      By the way, George Bush gave his half of the tarp money with no strings attached. President Obama on the other hand took his half of the money and gave it out with strings attached and now we have conservatives like Beck and Brown saying it’s so mean to be applying a tax on the tens of millions of dollars taken in by the CEO’s of these companies THAT TOOK AMERICAN TAXPAYER MONEY IN THE FIRST PLACE!

      Get your head out of your ass Ralph. You’re embarrassing yourself!

  7. “We can put light where there’s darkness, and hope where there’s despondency in this country. And part of it is working together as a nation to encourage folks to own their own home.”

    - President George W. Bush, Oct. 15, 2002

    So now it’s ALL the fault of Dodd and Frank now that the housing bubble burst. BOTH political parties have been bought off by the corporatists and bankers. The bank bail-out was a Bush initiative that got bi-partisan support to save the economy from supposedly diving towards another Great Depression. Who was against regulating banks and still against it?

    Ralph is right about single payer and is out of the mainstream conservative thinking on that one.

    In my 70 years I have never seen such PARTISANSHIP in our nation’s capitol. I too am upset with Obama’s failure to deliver but it is nearly impossible for him when the right (including blue dog Democrats) opposed nearly EVERY program he has tried to implement. His biggest failure is believing in the goodness of Republicans to work with him when most are hell bent on destroying his presidency. As a result, if the American people suffer…so be it, as the ends justify the means if one follows the philosophy of Machiavelli.

    Even the goddess of many conservatives, Ayn Rand said:

    “The end does not justify the means. No one’s rights can be secured by the violation of the rights of others.”

  8. “All loans originate with banks, Dummy Ralph. The housing market depends on it. The banks under George Bush TOOK ALL THE RISK”

    Not true. It was the politicians starting with Carter and carried further with Clinton who forced the banks to accept the bad paper. Bush did little to stop it except to make a speech that is we don’t get fannie and freedie under control, we will have a crisis.

    He was rebuked by the esteem Maxine Waters, Barney Frank and Rains.

    All politicians are to blame on both sides and we pay for their mistakes.

    • Barney Frank tried to do something but the republicans controlled the Congress at that time and they just laughed at him.

      Carter had nothing to do with the subprime mortgage crisis that started under George Bush. Nice try though, A. Ralph Dimwit!

      THE BANKS FOR THE FIRST TIME TOOK THE RISK. THEY LENT OUT MONEY TO PEOPLE WITHOUT PROOF OF INCOME. THEY LENT OUT MONEY TO PEOPLE WHO COULDN’T AFFORD THE PAYMENTS. THEY LENT OUT MONEY TO THOSE WHO DIDN’T HAVE THE 20% DOWNPAYMENT THEY ALWAYS REQUIRED. THEY JUST LENT OUT MONEY TO ANYONE WHO WANTED IT BECAUSE GEORGE BUSH TOLD THEM TO DO SO! Oh yes, he said, “We are an ownership society. Buy that house anyway you can!”.

  9. I can’t remember who was POTUS in 1977 and 1994 but I don’t think it was Bush. We can blame Bush or Obama or whoever but it started long before either one of them. Problem is nobody took action to stop it.

    “In 1994, the administration pushed through some fundamental changes to the Community Reinvestment Act of 1977. The goal of these changes was to make sure that banks were “serving low and moderate income geographies” and making sure that these banks “economically empowered persons of low and moderate income”. Regulators were then given more power to punish banks that did not comply with the new rules.”

    • The Community Reinvestment Act of 1977 was just that:

      http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/C.....stment_Act

      The Community Reinvestment Act (or CRA, Pub.L. 95-128, title VIII, 91 Stat. 1147, 12 U.S.C. § 2901 et seq.) is a United States federal law designed to encourage commercial banks and savings associations to meet the needs of borrowers in all segments of their communities, including low- and moderate-income neighborhoods.[1][2][3] Congress passed the Act in 1977 to reduce discriminatory credit practices against low-income neighborhoods, a practice known as redlining.[4][5] The Act requires the appropriate federal financial supervisory agencies to encourage regulated financial institutions to meet the credit needs of the local communities in which they are chartered, consistent with safe and sound operation (Section 802.). To enforce the statute, federal regulatory agencies examine banking institutions for CRA compliance, and take this information into consideration when approving applications for new bank branches or for mergers or acquisitions (Section 804.).[6]
