We, the poor, are in a war with the rich and they are winning.

Republican Congressman Ron Paul Defends Wikileaks Founder Julian Assange On The House Floor

December 12, 2010 1 comment

Republic Congressman Ron Paul begins his speech in Congress by defending Wikileaks Founder Julian Assange.

Ron Paul then talks about the Pentagon Papers. The Pentagon Papers were top-secret U.S Department of Defense documents regarding our political-military involvement with Vietnam and its neighbors from 1945-1967.

Ron Paul then asked 9 questions about the hypocrisy of our government and its condemnation of Julian Assange.

Ron Paul may be associated with the Ku Klux Klan (KKK) and he may be a little racist, but the guy does stand for something. Freedom through having a small government…and there aint nothing wrong with that.

 

Ron Paul opposes the war on drugs...thats enough for my vote.

 

 

Native Americans & Black Farmers Compensated With $4.2 Billion Dollars By The U.S Congress For Discrimination

December 1, 2010 2 comments

CBS News – The House on Tuesday passed landmark legislation to pay for some $4.6 billion in settlements with American Indians and black farmers who say they faced discrimination and mistreatment from the government.

Steve King is a racist bigot simple and plain.

Lawmakers voted 256-152 to send the measure to President Barack Obama, whose administration brokered the settlements over the past year. Continue Reading…

Congress has passed a bill to settle discrimination and mistreatment cases filed against them on behalf of Native Americans and Black Farmers.

The Black Farmers were given $1.2 billion dollars from a lawsuit that was settled 11 years ago in 1999.

Native Americans were given $3.4 billion dollars for Indian water-rights violations and royalties owed to them.

Iowa Republican Steve King expressed resentment towards the legislation. He compared the settlements to ‘slavery reparations.

Steve King’s exact words were “We are not gonna pay slavery reparations in the United States Congress…That war’s been fought. That was over a century ago. That debt was paid for in blood and it was paid for in the blood of a lot of Yankees, especially. And there’s no reparations for the blood that paid for the sin of slavery.”

The worst thing about King’s statement is that this bill has absolutely nothing to do with slavery. African-Americans everywhere are still waiting for the 4o acres that was promised to them. The government can keep the mules!!

Even though the bill passed with a good margin, hatred is still very much alive in our Congress and government.

 

Chicago Cubs Owner Joe Ricketts Opposes Government Spending But Wants The State To Lend Him $300 Million Dollars

November 16, 2010 2 comments

ChicagoTribune –  The owner of the Chicago Cubs will ask the state to borrow up to $300 million in a bond offering to make extensive renovations at Wrigley Field that would ensure the team can play at the historic ballpark for another 50 years. Continue Reading…

Joe Ricketts, through his son Tom, has asked the state of Indiana to give him a $300 million dollar bond to help renovate Wrigley Field. The former CEO and founder of  TD Ameritrade, a giant online brokerage, became the owner of the Chicago Cubs in 2009.

Joe is notoriously known for his opposition to government spending.

Joe is the sole funder of the non-profit Ending Spending Fund and the affiliated Taxpayers Against Earmarks. His sworn mission is “educating and engaging American taxpayers about wasteful government spending and the misguided practice of earmarks.”

In defense of his new tax, the crook said “No one is losing anything. It’s not a new tax, and it’s not increasing taxes. It will allow us to keep some of the growth in a tax.”

Joe should be treated like a criminal here and Indiana should force him to sell the Chicago Cubs

I can’t understand this statement and I don’t think I am supposed to, but it seems like he is trying to play both sides of the fence here.

The billionaire claims to be against government spending money that is paid by future generations, but that is what he is doing here.

An expenditure of $300 million for a private organization will put the state of Indiana in a bad financial state where the only option will be to raise taxes.

If taxes are going to be raised,  the government should spend money on the public instead of a private organization. Taxes are levied on everyone, not just the rich.

Therefore, the spending should be spent on everyone if everyone is going to pay for it.

Joe spent $600,000 on Republican Sharron Angle’s campaign against Democrat and Senate majority leader Harry Reid. The two ran a tight race against each other for a Nevada senate seat.

Instead of buying politicians, Joe should put that money towards building a good Chicago Cubs team. They haven’t won a World Series since 1907!!

Candidate For Congress Says He Has A Higher Security Clearance That Obama

September 28, 2010 1 comment

Barack Obama Is The Man

Tea Party backed republican candidate, Allen West, says “i have clearance that even the president cannot obtain because of my background.”

More security clearance than the president? WTF is this guy smoking on??

When I first saw this story I was almost Positive I would see an old white man talking shit about the Barack Obama.

To my surprise, Allen West is a relatively young black military man and he is running for Congress in Florida’s 22nd district.

I don’t think anyone has more security clearance than the president, but if someone does, it damn sure wouldn’t be another black man or someone “trying” to get into Congress.

Memo to Allen West: It’s a damn shame your running for congress. And quit hating on the Commander In Chief!

The United States Are Funding WWIII

September 13, 2010 1 comment

MSNBC– The Obama administration will soon notify Congress of an arms package for Saudi Arabia worth up to $60 billion, U.S. officials said Monday, a potentially record-breaking deal that may help counter Iran’s growing regional muscle.

The deal would apparently represent the largest single U.S. arms sale ever approved. It would allow Saudi Arabia, the most militarily advanced of the Arab Gulf states and one of the richest countries in the world, to buy top-line U.S.-made helicopters and fighter jets with ranges that would span the Middle East and beyond.

According to Jeffrey Goldberg of the Atlantic magazine, “A nuclear Iran poses the gravest threat since Hitler to the physical survival of the Jewish people.” (the Atlantic 9/2010)

Jeffrey Goldberg, one of the most influential journalists, made the cover story titled “Israel Is Getting Ready To Bomb Iran.”

I can’t begin to break down what he wrote in this article but I can tell you what I took from it. Iran will be ready to make nuclear bombs by March of 2011 and Israel wants the United States to stop it.

If the United States refuses, Israel will fly over Saudi Arabia and bomb what they think are nuclear plants. Saudi Arabia may have to assist Israel and this has to be what $60 billion dollars worth of weapons are for. Not to mention the $30 billion dollars worth  of weapons America will be giving Israel over 10 years.

This could very well be the start of a war in the Middle East that could expand and become WWIII.
