Mitch McConnell Mouth Brain Disconnection

Hypocrite is too nice a word for Mitch McConnell. I can think of many words that would fit him a lot better.

people like Mitch McConnell that give Human Beings a bad name.
The word JERK must have been coined just for him.

thanks to Martin Bashir for bringing this information our way so
we can see McConnell's manipulation of the truth for ourselves
and for telling this JERK that he should seek help.

I know that this new discovery has probably scared the BEJESUS out of ideologues and the religious who follow a strict script and any wandering departure from such script is a WORLD CATACLYSMIC EVENT. BUT AS THEY SAY... the cat is out of the bag so…

I like to think on scientific discovery as good for mankind, that is if the greedy don’t get a hold of it and use it for reasons that will satisfy their lust for power and wealth, to the detriment of us all (like they have done --but not got away with-- so many times in the past)! thinkingblue

'BOOK OF LOVE' Keith Olbermann June 23, 2011

Will life ever have a silver lining as the song "Look for a Silver Lining" suggests? I hope so but I'm not too enthusiastic about it, but as long as Keith Olbermann stays on the air, I will have a resource to help get me through this journey called LIFE (in one whole stable mental piece). thinkingblue

As always,
(It feels so good to be able to use the word "ALWAYS"
once again concerning Keith) Keith Olbermann delivered an
emotional Special Comment last night. As I listened with tears
welling up, (along with a silent roar of laughter at Olbermann's
astonishing wit and sarcasm) I thought to myself, it's so good to
have you back on the air.

For years,
in the past I had sat in front of my TV with tears flowing down
my face during one of Keith’s dissertations about some human
topic or event concerning the strength or despair of the human
condition (Pure Theatre of the Absurd genre). These comments of
hope (or anger) helped diminish my cynicism just a little and
made me believe there was perhaps hope for us tragic human
creatures. But always these feelings of encouragement were short
lived because some other psychopathic saga (usually of a
political nature) would come down the pike, bringing with it a
puff of (GOP) gloom.

watch Keith Olbermann's special comment of June 23, 2011 but have
a tissue handy.

description from the article below BY David Schwartz.

He's Baaaaaaaaaaack, Welcome Keith Olbermann

He's Baaaaaaaaaaack, Welcome Keith Olbermann

It was with much excitement and anticipation that I watched the first two nights of Countdown with Keith Olbermann on Current TV. A glorious moment for me because after he was booted off MSNBC for not buckling under their rigid, corporate (and on-the-spot whoever conservative manager that was vexed by Olbermann's honesty) RULES, a BLACK HOLE(replacing the Olbermann candidness that kept us SANE in an INSANE period in our lives) appeared in my psyche.

I must tell you, I was not disappointed.

While I sat there glued to my TV, I felt as though I had a momentary time-travel and landed somewhere betwixt the horrible years we were forced to endure during the Bush/Cheney administration; where, if it had not been for Keith, those years would have been, without question, completely intolerable and torturous. His nightly show spoke words of truth that were ubiquitous to all, who treasure freedom and realize its vulnerability. Thank You Keith we missed you and WELCOME BACK!




It’s the same title and the same cranky, opinionated and BELOVED (Well not by Sarah Palin) broadcaster. But here on Al Gore’s network, Keith Olbermann will welcome contributors like Michael Moore and Ken Burns and presumably will donate to whomever the #@”& He wants!!!

As you can see, Keith Olbermann's new Countdown on Current TV which debuted last night, looks and feels much like his old Countdown. Here are a few moments from the show, including his "Special Comment" in which he discusses the new program, which he calls "the last line of defense."

Countdown is weeknights at 8 pm on Current.

Keith Talks About MSNBC


It is clear that Clarence Thomas does not belong on the benches of the highest court in our nation. It is hard to believe that he has immunity from the things he is accused of simply by occupying the chambers of SCOTUS. Anita Hill must be shaking her head fervently with ‘I TOLD YOU SOS’. It is a shame that sexual harassment was looked upon as BOYS WILL BE BOYS back then. In today’s world Clarence Thomas probably would not be appointed. He should simply resign but taking into account his lack of ethics and his low moral conduct he will never leave.

The man has no shame and our country will suffer years to come because of it. thinkingblue

Next "Tit For Tat"

Wednesday, June 15, 2011



June 14, 2011

(Tit for tat is an English
saying meaning "equivalent retaliation"

I literally love Bob Herbert. I’ve read his columns for years and have blogged on a few. He possesses a wealth of wisdom and along with that, enormous intelligence. And even with all that
talent he, believe or not, is a humble man… a rare trait these days.

His comments on Rachel Maddow's Show give good reasoning to why Anthony Weiner has to go and makes mucho sense. Yet many liberal voters have embraced the question, why is Anthony Weiner being thrown under the bus by Democrats when Republican miscreants were left off the hook.

Even Rachel Maddow has weighed in on the side of the angry liberals who would like only a TIT FOR TAT action concerning Weiner. If there are Republicans who have descended into perversion and stayed in office then why are Democrats holding Weiner to a higher standard?

Listen to Herbert explain this with so much casual integrity. "I think that there's a lot of reasons he should leave. First and foremost, I don't think Democrats should be behaving like Republicans. I expect Republicans to be hypocrites -- I expect politicians to be hypocritical, and I expect Republicans to be at a heightened state of hypocrisy than most politicians.”


Rachel, I love you too but on this one YOU ARE WRONG! thinkingblue


Divided Wisconsin Supreme
Court upholds anti-union law

June 15, 2011

Is this the beginning of the end for WI and our nation? When FACTS can be manufactured to affect the outcome of a very POLITICAL debate then there is nowhere else to go but UP for the GOP and its Koch Brother Tea Party offshoot. Even if this decision doesn't end in the WI Supreme Court and goes to SCOTUS... The political imbalance there, will only allow it to stand... Why even bother to spend the money for this to happen?

It is a sad day for WE THE PEOPLE and for our nation. The people, The facts, The Truth are no longer important. Where did the SILVER PLATTER come from that was under the OUR FREEDOMS which was handed over to Scott Walker and his Tea Party? Never mind, I know THE KOCH BROTHERS BOUGHT IT! thinkingblue

Divided Wisconsin Supreme Court upholds anti-union law

MADISON, Wisconsin (Reuters) – A sharply divided Wisconsin
Supreme Court on Tuesday ruled that a controversial measure that
curbs the collective bargaining rights of public workers in the
state can go into effect.

In what was essentially a 4-3 decision, the high court overturned
a lower court, which had ruled Republican lawmakers violated the
state's open meetings law when they passed the measure in March.

"Access was not denied," the Supreme Court declared in
Tuesday's decision. "There is no constitutional requirement
that the legislature provide access to as many members of the
public as wish to attend meetings of the legislature or meetings
of legislative committees."

But Tuesday' 68-page decision was a thicket of concurrences and
dissents, reflecting the sharp divide the measure has created in
the state itself.

David Prosser, whose recent reelection to the state's high court
had been hotly contested by opponents of the union measure, wrote
in his eight-page concurrence that GOP legislators had good
reason to rush things they way they did, given the ugly mood of
protesters at the Capitol.

"The circuit court concluded that the legislature should
have provided public notice of the special session conference
committee 24 hours in advance," Prosser wrote.

"The court did not acknowledge that thousands of
demonstrators stormed and occupied the state Capitol within a few
hours of the notice that a conference committee meeting would be
held." MORE HERE

Should Rick Scott Be Baker Acted?

Rick Scott following in lockstep with the GOP's unyielding desire to KILL anything public has signed more bills into law (Regressive Conservatism laws) to help in the annihilation of the Public Education System. First expanding the voucher system witch allow more students to flee poor performing Public Schools and with the help of the government (our tax money) enter private schools. This is a KILL THE SOCIAL SAFETY NETS and privatize EVERYTHING, fulfillment for the GOP. Also passing a bill that will allow any teacher to judge the clothing of students... Say for instance, some Evangelical Christian teacher (who has a problem with seeing the SKIN of others) is appalled by perhaps a bellybutton exposure (or maybe an armpit or a hint of cleavage) they can now under government law punish the student and banish him/her to an in-school suspension. Does this sound like SMALL GOVERNMENT? Small government My Big Fat Foot! "Heil Hitler". RICK SCOTT SHOULD BE BAKER ACTED! Please read the article below: thinkingblue

Tallahassee, FL - A trio of bills overhauling state voucher

The four bills were among 48 measures Scott approved Thursday,
according to an announcement by his office late in the day.

Two of the bills could increase, perhaps by thousands of
students, the number of recipients of taxpayer funds to be put

Is Rick Scott, Turning Florida into a Totalitarian State?

Is Rick Scott Turning Florida into a Totalitarian State?
Rick Scott, is a monster, pure and simple. He is out to eradicate all poverty by killing the poor off; All elderly who rely on social programs; by killing them off; All socialprograms that middle and lower class income groups (who will not survive without) depend upon... you guessed it, BY KILLING THEM OFF.

How did this prima donna despot become Governor of Florida? Right now he has an approval rating of 29%, the real question here is... WHO ARE THESE PEOPLE THAT COMPRISE THIS 29% GROUP? No wonder we are a divided nation!

Standing up to Rick Scott in Florida

As we speak Rick Scott is harming the state of Florida. My daughter almost was fired from her teaching job because she was up for tenure (THE ONLY REASON)... A single mother of 2 children who worked her
fingers to the bone to obtain a teaching degree while working and
raising her kids. Then a Rick Scott comes along and wantonly
tries to snatch her achievement away from her. This man is not
worthy of his position.

Rick Scott's goal in life apparently is to bring Florida to its
knees or worse. The people who voted for this selfish, arrogant
man must be horrified at what they have put into power. If
Florida is to survive as a state anyone would be proud to call
home, Rick Scott and his immoral objectives must go. Below is a
video I have put together concerning this pathetic man Florida
calls Governor. Please watch it and then help save our beautiful
state from Rick Scott,

Rick Scott took the Fifth SEVENTY FIVE TIMES during this Two

Hour Deposition for Medicare Fraud

MIAMI (Reuters) - Florida's Republican Governor Rick Scott will
soon be hit with legal challenges over his decision to make drug
tests mandatory for all state workers, an American Civil
Liberties Union official said on Monday.

Florida Governor Signs Historic Medicaid Bill

Gov. Rick Scott has signed two historic
Medicaid bills, placing the health care of nearly 3 million
Florida residents into the hands of for-profit companies and
hospital networks

Tallahassee, FL - Gov. Rick Scott has signed two historic
Medicaid bills, placing the health care of nearly 3 million
Florida residents into the hands of for-profit companies and hospital

Scott signed the bills Thursday.

Lawmakers say Medicaid was overwhelming the state budget and
needed to be privatized to rein in costs and improve patient care.

Critics fear the bills build on a flawed five-county experiment
where patients struggled to access specialists and doctors
complained the treatments they prescribed were frequently denied.

Sen. Joe Negron, who spearheaded the overhaul, said leaders have
learned from the pilot program's shortcomings and includes
increased oversight and more stringent penalties.

Long term care patients will be the first to enroll in the
statewide program starting in October 2013. Others will join the
following year.


Rick Scott Faces Challenge Over Decision To Make Drug Tests Mandatory For State Workers

"We're certainly moving in that direction," said Howard
Simon, executive director of the ACLU of Florida, when asked
about possible lawsuits challenging the policy.

"It's certainly going to be subjected to a test, a
constitutional evaluation by the courts," Simon, a veteran
civil rights advocate, told Reuters.

He was referring to an executive order that Scott, a Tea
Party-backed conservative, signed last week requiring random drug
screening for all workers on the state payroll at least once
every three months.

New job applicants would also be subject to drug tests under the
order signed by Scott, a controversial former healthcare
executive, who took office in January.

Scott issued his order on the same day a bill was filed in the
state legislature seeking to make good on his campaign pledge to
require drug tests for welfare recipients, who would be required
to pay for their own drug screening.

He said random drug testing of government workers, without
reasonable suspicion of drug abuse, has generally been limited to
employees in jobs where public safety is an issue.

"There's federal, U.S. Supreme Court standards on all of
this. I don't think the governor got very good legal advice on
this thing," Simon said.

He noted that Scott has staunchly opposed a statewide computer
database that would track prescriptions of Vicodin, Percocet and
other dangerous narcotics, on grounds that it could intrude on
privacy rights.

"That could only come from a person who is very, very
selective in their principles," Simon said.

Law enforcement officials say Florida is the largest U.S. state
without a database to keep track of painkillers, including
oxycodone, and the undisputed epicenter of America's illegal
pill-mill trade and prescription dope dealers.

The Rick Scott Effect:
Obama’s Approval Rating Skyrockets In Florida

May 26, 2011
By Jason Easley

A new Quinnipiac poll released today found that in one month
President Obama’s approval rating in Florida has gone from
44% to 51%.

According to the Quinnipiac University poll, President Obama has
experienced a net 16 point swing in Florida. The President went
from having a net negative approval rating of 44%-52% in April to
having a positive 51%-43% job approval rating in May.

Obama has made up most of his ground with Independents, who swung
a net 18 points in his direction. The president’s job
approval rating with the state’s Independents has gone from
39%-55% in April to 47%-45% today. Obama also gained a net 12
points in Democratic approval from 79%-16% in April to 86%-11%
today. Obama experienced a huge swing with men in the state. He
has gained a net 22 points. The president has gone from a 19
point negative split in April, 39%-58% to 47%-45% today.

By a margin of 50%-44% voters say Obama deserves a second term.
Last month, by a margin of 51%-42% voters said that he did not
deserve to be reelected.

Obviously the big change since April was the killing of Bin
Laden, but Americans have notoriously short memories and that
event took place weeks before this poll was conducted. Something
interesting happens when Gov. Rick Scott’s approval numbers
from the same poll are compared with Obama’s. As Obama was
gaining a net 18 point in the state, Gov. Scott was losing 16

Scott’s approval rating has fallen to a Palin like 29%. His
disapproval rating (54%) almost mirrors Obama’s new approval
rating (51%). Scott’s disapproval ratings with Independents
and men are each over 50%. Rick Scott came into office as an
unpopular governor, and his numbers continue to only trend

The question is has Rick Scott poisoned the well for the
Republican nominee in 2012? If Scott’s approval ratings
don’t improve, he may have made it impossible for the
Republican nominee to beat Obama in Florida. Recent polling in
Ohio revealed that as Gov. John Kasich has become the second most
unpopular governor in America, Obama has become the favorite
there too.

The best argument for voters in Florida to support Obama in 2012
may end up being Rick Scott. If Scott continues to plummet, a
state that Republicans consider crucial to defeating Obama may be
out of reach.

The lesson here is be careful what you wish for. Republicans
wanted a big victory in 2010, but their victory may be helping
Obama steam ahead towards a Sunshine State victory 2012.
