Obama's Birth Certificate Revealed

This will go down a big ugly stain on the Republican party forever.

The history books will show how utterly ignorant a majority of Republicans were during this time period.

Congratulations you dimwits on making history.

Obama = Bush = Carter

You know what would be really healthy for the Democrats. To relentlessly attack the top of the ticket right before the general election. I mean, make as many Obama = Bush comparisons as possible.

Drum beat that dead horse into the ground, then when it stops moving, keep on beating. Demoralize and dehumanize the top of the ticket and hopefully the base will turn on him viciously and just not show up in 2012.

Because see, what will really be good for the Dems, according to some FDL'ers, is if Dems take another beating in 2012. See, that way the country will really learn its lesson and revolt!

Only problem is that if Republicans continue gains in 2012, they will completely dismantle organized labor and legally destroy whats left of the Dems foot soldiers. More poll tax laws will pass. College voters will be restricted in voting. Republican fund-raising will be ridiculously unbalanced as untaxed corporate profits pour into Republican coffers unrestricted.

It might take 50 years to regain control but man, will we teach Obama a lesson! In the mean time, suck it up middle America.

This is all Obama's fault, because Obama = Bush!

I hear this occasionally and I see conservative pundits run with it any time its mentioned because they know how challenges to the parties leader squashes the morale and motivation of the base.

America Greeted as Liberators

Obama has now achieved what the Bush admin dreamed of...the US greeted as liberators in a predominately Muslim country.

Food for thought.

Operation Get the Dingbat Nominated

When it comes the time to vote in the Republican primaries, vote for Sarah!

Vote for Sarah!!!! Now, who's with me?

These results by PPP should explain why Palin would you'd say at TalkingPointsMemo:

Boycott Huffington Post

Boycott Huffington Post

They are now having the serial deceiver Breitbart blog there.

Time to forget about them. There are a number of blogs that are much more informative.

Check out my blog roll for a decent line-up to use as a starting point. Many of them don't have the mainland China-like moderation you experience at Huffington ComPost.

It's Time To Take Our Country Back

Watch Michael Moore's speech in Wisconsin. Spread it around. It's a great message about the working class taking this country back.

It's time folks....we've waited long enough.

The Few States With No Collective Bargaining Rights For Teachers

This really needs no explanation as these folks do just fine on their own. And with that....

"Only 5 states do not have collective bargaining for educators and have deemed it illegal. Those states and their ranking on ACT/SAT scores are as follows:

South Carolina – 50th
North Carolina – 49th
Georgia – 48th
Texas – 47th
Virginia – 44th

If you are wondering, Wisconsin, with its collective bargaining for teachers, is ranked 2nd in the country. Let’s keep it that way.

This isn’t to say that the lack of collective bargaining explains these poor outcomes, of course, but it is true that the evidence that breaking teacher’s unions improves educational outcomes is somewhere between “exceptionally weak” and “non-existent.”

Why Does the Right Have Such a Disdain for Teachers?

In light of how Gov. Walker of WI kissed up to who he thought was Koch, one of his largest financiers in the election, made me think a bit. Teachers across this country should be aware of how corporate interests can influence Governors to cut their benefits in order to allow business to game the system.

In other words, at the cost of those that educate our children, will come the payoff to campaign contributors.

It's a downward spiral in our education system. The constant attack from the right on our public teaching system is slowly eroding away what was once a noble occupation. Many highly skilled people stay away because they know, the second there is a downturn, they look to teachers to take the lopsided brunt of the load on their backs. Teachers are demonized as leeches on society from the right.

Driving home last month I remember reading a bumper sticker that encapsulated this disdain for public teachers that read; paraphrased 'I Can't Wait to Defund All Public Schools so We Can Build More Stealth Bombers.'

Who on earth could be that ignorant?

The video footage of Sarah Palin and her daughter rolling their eyes when a protester in Alaska mentioned she was a public school teacher is just one more example of the growing disdain the right has for public education.

I know the right likes to say the left thinks Republicans are all dumb rednecks (at least they joke that way to fire up the partisans) but when the apparent attack on our educators is so apparent in every day politics, it's not some far fetched conclusion that the right just doesn't like teachers.

Just Imagine...

Imagine if Obama had joked to a fake Trumka about his baseball bat he had in his oval office when speaking about the Tea Partiers what the uproar would be.

Just for a sec, stop and imagine what would be going on in right wing circles, just imagine.

If Obama joked about a bat in his Oval Office to Trumka, Fox would have guest after guest on to ask them what they thought about the President joking about bashing Tea Partiers heads in and if they think the President should apologize. Asking them if he crossed the line.

It would be on Fox 24/7. Every hourly show would ask the same question over and over. Every right wing blog would have blaring headlines of Obama with a bat drawn in his hand cartoons. Every right wing radio station would be hammering away at it, hour after hour.

At no point is the Governor of a state joking to who he thinks was a major contributor to his campaign about beating protesters with bats funny.

Right wing partisans would be insisting to be invited onto every other cable news station and they would push how the President joked about bashing in the heads of Tea Party protesters.

The conversation would focus on that to the point of a frenzy. Opinions would be heavily shaped. The public would overwhelmingly turn against the President. It would be shameful to throw your support behind someone who joked about bashing in the heads of the people he is supposed to represent.

Just stop for a second, and imagine.

Gov. Walker of Wisoncon Punked by Buffalo Beast

For whatever reason, the buffalo beast blog is down. Most likely because of the flood of people heading there.

The interview is a prank call of Gov. Walker who thinks he's talking to David Koch, the financiers of his Governorship and who also helped logistically getting out the vote and all. Walker basically wrote in his budget a section to hand over WI utilities with no contracts over to Koch for a payback.

Here is the audio for anyone interested.
