Hey Republican Voters, Listen Up!

Ignorance Is NOT Bliss!

EXCERPT: The common theme in keeping their citizens ignorant and uninformed is pandering to voters’ irrational fears. It is why Republicans’ claim Democrats are subverting their religious freedom, taking god out of schools, coming for their guns, and imposing Marxism, Socialism, or communism on the people. If any American does not believe how ignorance borne of an uneducated populace drives opposition to policies that help Americans, take heed of the number of times Republican and teabagger voters bemoan President Obama’s Marxist or socialist policies revealing they have no idea what Marxist or socialist policies entail. If one wants to end a debate, or conversation with a conservative parroting Republican talking points, ask them when the government came for their guns, what Marxism or socialism is, how their religious liberty, was subverted, or how President Obama is shredding the Constitution; a document they have never read, much less understand at even a rudimentary level.It is beyond refute that if the citizens of this country were informed and educated, Republicans would be hard-pressed to get elected as dog-catchers, much less legislators. The assault on public education goes beyond Republican-controlled states as evidenced by congressional Republicans regularly cutting education funding. They, Republicans, know that if the public were educated, they could not demean science as the work of the devil, or claim contraception is abortion, or push the Christian bible as true science. There is a reason so many morons in the conservative movement are certain that god created America, wrote the Constitution, established America’s borders, and installed Christianity as the state religion, and it is simply due to their inability to pick up a history book or the founding document to check Republican claims for veracity.Americans are not unintelligent, but a fair proportion of them are dirt stupid; it is the only reason a Republican ever gets elected.

Rick Perry's Bad Memory

Rick Perry’s memory is so bad… How bad is it? It’s so bad he couldn’t remember the two-count felony indictment filed by a grand jury against him. I wonder why that is, maybe it’s because he’s preoccupied with his (and the GOP’s) continual war on women by taking away a woman’s right to a safe abortion.

Republicans and the "Weaker Sex"

This article, even if it is from WONKETTE, is the best depiction of how Republicans view the nature of womanhood… “Not too bright and a bit too rebellious. Who should listen to their man instead of their own common-sense, for guidance.”
Just wait until we have a woman president… they will probably become even more of a DO NOTHING PARTY to halt any kind of progress towards full equality for us, the so-called WEAKER SEX.

~~ Wonkette is a left-leaning American online magazine of topical satire and political gossip, established in 2004 by Gawker Media and founding editor Ana Marie Cox, edited by Ken Layne from 2006 to 2012, and owned and edited by Rebecca Schoenkopf since 2012.~~

9 Year Old Learns How To Shoot Uzi - Learns How To Kill.

Today's NRA mentality is that guns/lethal weapons are toys to be played with... without any respect whatsoever as to what they were manufactured for... KILLING! What a sad story…
9-year-old girl accidentally shoots instructor with UziUSA TODAY NETWORK Associated Press and NBC News, news source 11:01 p.m. EDT August 26, 2014
DOLAN SPRINGS, Ariz. -- A shooting range instructor in Arizona was accidentally shot and killed by a 9-year-old girl who was learning how to shoot an Uzi, authorities said on Tuesday.
Charles Vacca, 39, was teaching the girl how to use the automatic weapon on Monday morning at the Last Stop outdoor shooting range in White Hills, Arizona, when she pulled the trigger and the kickback caused the gun to lurch over her head, investigators said.
Vacca was hit by a stray bullet and airlifted to University Medical Center in Las Vegas, where he was pronounced dead late Monday. The girl was at the range with her parents at the time, but their names were not released.
Sam Scarmardo, the manager for the Last Stop's shooting range, told NBC News that "the establish practice at most shooting ranges is 8 years old and up with parental supervision."
He said Vacca was a "great guy, with a great sense of humor" and called him "very conscientious and very professional."
Scarmardo said that the range has never had a similar incident in over a decade of being open — "not even a scratch."
"I just ask everybody to pray for Charlie, and pray for the client, she's going to have a hard time," said Scarmardo.
The Arizona Department of Public Safety referred inquiries to the Bureau of Alcohol Tobacco and Firearms, which didn't return calls for comment.
Ronald Scott, a Phoenix-based firearms safety expert, said most instructors usually have their hands on guns when children are firing high-powered weapons. "You can't give a 9-year-old an Uzi and expect her to control it," Scott told the Associated Press.

Can the NRA Get Any More Despicable?

Can the NRA Get Any More Despicable?
Of course, they can and will...

EXCERPT: LaPierre: "Knockout Gamers" And "Haters" Just Two Reasons We Need Unlimited Rifles, Shotguns, And Pistols (Also "Waves Of Chemicals" Could Collapse Society At Any Moment)
"We don't trust government, because government itself has proven unworthy of our trust. We trust ourselves and we trust what we know in our hearts to be right. We trust our freedom. In this uncertain world, surrounded by lies and corruption everywhere you look, there is no greater freedom than the right to survive and protect our families with all the rifles, shotguns, and handguns we want. We know in the world that surrounds us there are terrorists and there are home invaders, drug cartels, carjackers, knockout gamers, and rapers, and haters, and campus killers, airport killers, shopping mall killers and killers who scheme to destroy our country with massive storms of violence against our power grids or vicious waves of chemicals or disease that could collapse our society that sustains us all."

ISIS - Terrorists Or Just Plain Idiots

ISIS, what a bunch of idiots this modern day Barbarous Genghis Khan group of thugs is. Do they really believe that using modern technology (a video camera) to record an unspeakable act of cruelty carried out upon a fellow human being will frighten, all that is good and reasonable about the human species, and increase their power to take over the world through savagery? Anyone possessing just an ounce of logic will understand that this is going to diminish their brutal power not increase it, by angering the world and motivate those who have the capacity, to stop their inhuman acts in its tracks. Did I call ISIS idiotic, better word would be shortsighted or myopic. thinkingblue

Ferguson Missouri, Underground Jim Crow Laws

Now there's another "Not One More"?  Not One More innocent young black person will be executed at the hands of police (or any bigot using a Stand Your Ground law). The double standard of laws for whites and blacks (or rich and poor) is scandalous... The Tea Party vigilantes can carry assault weapons “openly” where we take our children to shop... Bigots can blatantly confiscate government land to feed their cattle, while the same "Target Department store vigilantes" flock to the area, threatening police with their Open Carry, (even killing two police officers while they were eating lunch by two Bundy supporters) defending a law breaking bigot. Not only should we ask, How Many More but also How Much More of these underground “Jim Crow Laws” that have recently surfaced due to the powers of the Koch Brothers’ Tea Party and the NRA, are we-the-people to stomach? We have no power over who gets the shaft by police and who gets the police to turn a blind-eye and allow white lawlessness? That’s not the America of today, that’s the America of yesterday. Bigotry has no place in a Democracy yet it flourishes here in the land of plenty (for the few). thinkingblue

How Fake Can Fox News Get?

Fox News is so bogus; it doesn't realize what is and what is not appropriate when reporting on the tragic demise of a beloved entertainer. A fake Mrs. Doubtfire clip? Not only is it inappropriate it’s out and out BAD TASTE! What else can one expect from this pathetic TV “news” outlet?

NRA's Latest Marketing Group - Guns For Blind People

How cruel is this…? They know if a person has the physical human handicap of total blindness they would never be able to secure a weapons permit, just as a (total) blind person would probably not qualify to serve in the military. This does not make that person any less of a viable person in society, it just means somewhere, somehow, Common Sense prevails.
The NRA will do anything to expand their gun market; they don’t wish to make people safer, their main objective is to sell guns and make money, end of story. This proves they really do HAVE NO SHAME!

War huh yeah, What is it good for?

Absolutely nothing, say it again y'all
War, huh good God
What is it good for?
Absolutely nothing, listen to me
Oh, war, I despise
'Cause it means destruction of innocent lives
War means tears to thousands of mothers’ eyes...
Artist:Edwin Starr
As the war in Gaza continues and the civilian death toll rises, one might ask the question that Edwin Starr verbalized so well in his song War, War, What Is It Good For...  If the only answer is that war is for the accession of territory and the show of might where leaders claim, "The other side started it, No, THEY started it".  If that's what all the killing and maiming of children is about... We humans have not evolved very far from our Stone Age days. thinkingblue
