Why Does The GOP Use Lies To Win When They Know It Doesn't Work?

Why Does The GOP Use Lies To Win When They Know It Doesn't Work?
I'm sorry but the Tea Party and its Daddy the GOP have become cheap and insignificant. ‘And Why might you ask, have I come to this conclusion? Simply because their scruples have become so small you can drown them in a bathtub. Upon reading the below article (and numerous others exposing their dirty deeds) I have deduced that the leaders in both these groups are just plain lazy. It appears it is too damn hard for them to just roll up their sleeves and tell their sycophants, let’s get out and win over the hearts and minds of the people, while making America, once again a beacon of hope. HARD WORK? YOU BETCHA! So instead, they decide to cheat, lie and suppress votes in order to win. The below article gives example of the GOP LIE TO WIN strategy and how it is hurting them. thinkingblue
PS: On second thought, maybe it’s not laziness; maybe they just don’t know how to win without cheating.
'Friends of Hamas' and Why the GOP Can't Win the Internet
By Eric Boehlert, Media Matters for America
20 February 13
If you want to appreciate how vast the digital divide is that historically separates conservative failures and liberal accomplishments online, and if you want to add some context to the recent New York Times Magazine feature article on how Republicans' chronic online shortcomings dim the party's electoral chances, just look at how the two camps were marking their time in recent days.
Working with Republicans on Capitol Hill trying to block Chuck Hagel's nomination to become Secretary of Defense, Breitbart's Ben Shapiro recently posted a report suggesting Hagel had allegedly received "foreign funding" over the years from a terrorist-friendly group called Friends of Hamas, but that the payments were being kept secret. The allegation served as part of the right wing's relentless campaign to smear Hagel as being anti-Israel.
Fox Business host Lou Dobbs, National Review columnist Andrew McCarthy, and AM talker Hugh Hewitt all hyped Breitbart's conspiratorial narrative about Hagel's nefarious connections with Friends of Hamas.
Slight problem. Last week, Slate's David Weigel detailed how Friends of Hamas doesn't actually exist. And as New York Daily News reporter Dan Friedman explained, he unwittingly started the Friends of Hamas rumor when he posed the Hagel question to a GOP aide in the form of "an obvious joke." According to Friedman, he asked about both Friends of Hamas and the "Junior League of Hezbollah," and thought that the "names were so over-the-top, so linked to terrorism in the Middle East, that it was clear I was talking hypothetically and hyperbolically."

Dubya, still making news.
I am including these news items even though they are sadly, an everyday occurance.

Like the EverReady Bunny The People Who See Themselves As Fetus Protectors...

The Right-wing Religious Fringe Continues With Its War on Women.

I'm sorry, but these holier than thou focus groups of the right-wing fringe, make me nauseous. What do they want? & Why are they so hateful? They're pathetic and they're problematic because they wish to turn our nation into a theocracy. They are also ignorant; they presume that their belief system should become STATE LAW. They don't understand that a theocracy will mean that Freedom of Religion will cease to exist and that doesn't mean that their Christianity will then be at the helm. Maybe it will be a theocracy of… (see image)
From this site:

Wake-up from your righteous coma will ya! The theocracy you so crave may not be one of Christianity but that of Hinduism, Islam, or maybe even "Juche"...
"Forgive them for they know not what they do..." We all deserve to have personal beliefs that will help chart our way through this existence and (unlike what the religious right would like to do) we do not have the right to force others to believe or think that our belief system is the only system. One size does NOT fit all. thinkingblue
PS: Oh, yes and one more thing I’d like to say to this misguided '40 days' crew… Why do you believe that being hateful will win you over sympathizers? (picture from facebook below)

Facebook Breaking News

I love Facebook, it's a tool to inform or un-inform, (or fluffy entertainment) whatever’s your cup of tea (or tea party). I prefer to use this tool as an instrument of information that inspires and enlightens. Today, I came across this sad story about a young man who was murdered for his brave stance against barbaric beliefs that is or may become law in his homeland. He lost his life standing up for justice (for those who died under ruthless atrocities in Bangladesh) and a reality truth that mankind's mind should be free to explore one's existence without persecution. (Atheists are killed in Bangladesh ) I’m sure this has happened many times before but because of facebook and the Richard Dawkins Foundation this story has been uncovered from the bottom of mainstream media's heaps, to be told and retold, helping to extend the movement of enlightenment across the globe.
Also, back at home in America, we fight our own battles to free our minds from the demagoguery the GOP tries to spread across our land; hoping to gain enough power that can stop the freedom to explore and accept the claims that their beliefs (whether its religious dogma or corporate greed) should become the law of the land. Elizabeth Warren is championing the fight against such mandates that this party of covetous and pious has inflicted upon us for too long. thinkingblue

Blogger brutally killed

A blogger and activist of Shahbagh movement was found stabbed dead last night, hours after the organisers decided to discontinue from today the 24-hour blockade. The killing prompted the organisers to abandon a plan to demonstrate in front of National Museum from 3:00pm to 10:00pm every day. The victim, Ahmed Rajib Haidar, lived with his brother Newaz Mortoza Haidar at Palash Nagar in the capital's Mirpur area. Police found the body, bearing several stabs, near his house. Outraged, the Shahbagh protesters demanded immediate arrest of the killers and banning pro-Jamaat blog Sonarbangla that had been carrying out propaganda against Rajib over the last few days. They also called upon the nation to resist the countrywide hartal called by Jamaat for Monday. The protesters have also observed one-minute silence last night and they will wear black badges this morning to mourn for Rajib. His namaz-e-janaza will be held at the Shahbagh intersection after Asr prayers today. Rajib, 30, an architect, MORE HERE:

Ted Nugent - A Real Piece of Work (shit)

When I heard what Ted Nugent called the victims of gun violence who had been invited as guests to the SOUA on Tuesday February 12th, I thought, What A Piece of Shit, this man is. There seems to be no compassion, no empathy and no common sense coming from the NRA these days. NONE! I have heard that many members belonging to this club of crackers are claiming they would like to see some changes made to avert the murderous rampages of violent gun owners in order to bring sanity back and protect our children and law abiding citizens. But if these people really do believe there needs to be some changes made, why do they remain members? Even after the likes of Ted Nugent’s insane comment, calling the victims of gun violence, PROPS FOR THE WHITEHOUSE and especially their whacked out leader LaPierre’s latest manifesto, preaching violence: “NRA's Wayne LaPierre: “Be afraid, be very afraid” was released, I say to them:
By retaining membership with LaPierre’s NRA, you are telling the world you care nothing about keeping our children and our nation safe! Perhaps, you are just mouthing concern about gun violence but in actuality you agree with the Nut-Balls that have become the face of this nefarious club, you still pay dues to! Please watch the video featuring a clip from the Ed Schultz Show and President Obama's poignant call to give Gun Victims A Voice. thinkingblue

NRA's Wayne LaPierre: Be afraid, be very afraid
By Steve Benen
Thu Feb 14, 2013

Way back in 1993, there was an episode of "The Simpsons," in which Grandpa Simpson wrote a letter to the White House. Apropos of nothing, ol' Abe wanted the president to eliminate three states from the union because there are "too many states nowadays."

Grandpa added in his letter, "I am not a crackpot."

I thought of this while reading the latest missive from the National Rifle Association's Wayne LaPierre, who had a lengthy opinion piece in the Daily Caller yesterday, explaining why Americans should be terrified enough to want to buy lots and lots of firearms.

During the second Obama term, however, additional threats are growing. Latin American drug gangs have invaded every city of significant size in the United States. Phoenix is already one of the kidnapping capitals of the world, and though the states on the U.S./Mexico border may be the first places in the nation to suffer from cartel violence, by no means are they the last.

The president flagrantly defies the 2006 federal law ordering the construction of a secure border fence along the entire Mexican border. So the border today remains porous not only to people seeking jobs in the U.S., but to criminals whose jobs are murder, rape, robbery and kidnapping. Ominously, the border also remains open to agents of al Qaeda and other terrorist organizations.

Wait, it gets worse. LaPierre also envisions mass looting, debt riots, and the collapse of law-enforcement agencies. It's the kind of news you don't hear from President Obama -- who, of course, wants to disarm you for his own nefarious purposes -- and his "'mainstream' media enablers."

And then there's LaPierre's kicker: "These are perils we are sure to face -- not just maybe. It's not paranoia to buy a gun."

"Paranoia"? Who said anything about "paranoia"? This is simply a piece from a powerful right-wing lobbyist warning of Latin-American gangs, terrorists, and rioters, each of which are coming to attack you -- "not just maybe." Why would anyone think this sounds like "paranoia"?

Perhaps for the same reason Abe Simpson understood he might sound like a "crackpot"?

Gun Violence Prevention, Will It Ever Become A Reality?

"... what I'm asking for is (that) you consider a stronger assault weapons ban, elimination of the sale of semi-automatic weapons, restrictions on the size of magazine clips, number of rounds, extend background checks and also please let us do some gun research that's real... Allow me as a medical doctor, when I see a patient or when my colleagues see a patient, when I educate them on the effects of alcohol or tobacco, safe sex, motor vehicle accidents, can I please talk to them about the risks of gun violence? Please?" Dr. William Begg

An emotional Begg also told the families of those who were killed in the massacre, "On behalf of the ER, we tried our best. We tried our best."
