Republicans originally thought that Fox worked for us and now we’re discovering we work for Fox. And this balance here has been completely reversed. The thing that sustains a strong Fox network is the thing that undermines a strong Republican party.”

David Frum, former speech writer for Bush (43)

When the Republicans realized they had shut down the government they CHEERED on the floor! Members of the Press described their apparent "elation" and the word "giddy" was the most heard and reported attribute assigned these morally compromised, self-important, pre-adolescently arrested Buffoons parading as adults.

The repeal of the ACA is nothing more then a pretense. Their intent all along (and even when running for office) was four part: (1) Shut the government down. (2) Await its “surrender”. (3) Failing that, threaten default. (4) If all else fails... summarily KILL the hostage!

This end-game will be by any measure a declaration and execution of WAR and one against our collective well-being which would indelibly and forever sully the good faith, credit and the Word of what was a great nation, hallowing out the hopes, dreams and expectations of a people and for a generation to come.

These Seditionists are still fighting the War of Northern Aggression and hate (with little or no pretense) a government striving to be inclusive, our egalitarian society and the cohesion of the Union. They will do more damage to our people, our economy and our way-of-life then any outside terrorist group could ever dream of achieving!

These so called Republicans are an erratic coalition of coded-racists, conspicuous hypocrites, Neo-Confederates, Birthers, Secessionists, those who would impose theocracy, the cognitively-challenged, anti-intellectuals, science-deniers, Homophobes, Sexists, Misogynists, Xenophobes, Absolutists, sellers-of-fear and ad-nauseam... those ever overtly vocal professing Christians who act anything but (using the tenants of their faith selectively, narrowly, without context and then doing so as a weapon to bludgeon to near-death the poor, the sick, women, working people, non-whites and the non-believer)! They are in aggregate even capable of booing an American soldier voluntarily serving in a theater-of-war!

Having all the attributes of low-functioning sociopaths... to a man/women they discharge with abandon platitudes like Freedom, America, Family, Patriot, and Values and do so with projectile speed and an indiscriminate-dispersal (while having no thought, genuine feeling-invested or understanding of the sacrosanct concepts in question)! For them the medium in which they swim is Hate Radio, paranoia and conspiracy (and the more fantastic the more readily transmitted like some horrible contagion). These are Reactionaries who rather then being for someone or something are for reasons of raw unflinching pathological self-interest against everyone... "not them"! They live in a world free-of-facts, where history is to be revised (accordingly) and the only voices they hear are their own self-reinforcing feverish rants!

This necrotizing-vestige and fading shadow of what was formerly the establishment party of Reagan have now made of what was once the call and privilege of Public Service nothing more then a "reductive pursuit" and one intent on serving ever narrowing-interests and the illusion of purity. Never to be dirtied by the hard work-of-governance or a need to actually have the capacity of compassion... these craven, puerile, destructive, intellectually-lazy, full-on nihilist “place holders’ see both compromise and reasonable accommodation as the failings of capitulation and strive only to circumvent good-order, to-impede, slow-down and if allowed flat-line the progress of the entire nation.

They reject the very structures of our democracy, its intended healthy-tension, civility, discourse, debate and unity-of-purposes (no loyal opposition here). They brandish mini-constitutions like fetishes and all the while working to undo all that this “living” document has allowed us to achieve and the very society which has raised up around it (yes... they will save us by wounding, maiming, crippling and killing us)! For them their moral-universe extends no further then their petty concerns will take them... and even to a place where the theft of power by extortion is just another day's work!

If they cannot re-litigate a law “already” duly passed and invalidate the consensus of an election “already” held... they will in affect strap on a Weapon of Mass Economic Destruction... stand in our collective Public Square and detonate! By not relenting to their onerous terms they likewise threaten our irrevocable demise and unknowingly or knowingly their own murder-suicide (every Republican in the House, the Tea Party and the Leadership will without question be held to account as accessories to this historic crime, this self-inflicted economic Pearl Harbor and even acts of treason)!

Their world is ever shrinking and circumscribed... they would make of a great nation a lesser thing! Their path is a descent downward in allegiance - to region (only), then state, then county, then city, then town, then fiefdom and finally to barricade the gates of their mind and then the door! They are the enemy within! They are the dry-rot in the floorboards of our civilization! They are the cancer metastasizing through the body-politic! They are collectively a dangerous unknowing child with a gun now found and they will wound us all TERRIBLY!

"The right-wing don't want what's best for America. They want what's best for them, their billionaire friends and their share-holders. And because if anyone is allowed to think about that logically they'd realize it's horrible, the Republicans wrap their bullshit and horrible ideas in a flag because they know that any mention of "the flag" sends rabid Teabaggers and other assorted far-right lunatics into fits of gushing pride. It's how they get away with the shit they pull.

The Democrats don't need to put on an act of being Patriotic. They just are, because they want what's best for America and the American people. As in all of them, not just ones with trust funds and multi-million dollar incomes or lobbying groups. So they don't need to wrap themselves in flags every time they open their mouths."


"I don't think the common person is getting it ... My college kid, the baby sitters, the nails ladies -- everybody who's got the right to vote -- they don't understand what's going on. I just think if you're lower income -- one, you're not as educated, two, they don't understand how it works, they don't understand how the systems work, they don't understand the impact."
