The true motivation for a war is not always clear in spite of proclamations by a nation or its leaders. The war in Iraq’s purpose is still a mystery to many Americans because of the ever-changing goals proffered by the Bush administration and there are parallels with the current conservative war on women. On the surface, it appears that evangelicals are on a tear to restrict women’s right to choose their reproductive health, and although that is one of their primary goals, there is another pernicious motivation many Americans ignore even though it is obvious to women. Over the past couple of weeks, there have been important clues to what the conservative’s endgame is and although contraception, abortion rights, and women’s health issues are at the forefront, it is male dominance that drives the assaults.

And here I thought it was the Year of the Dragon when really (according to the GOP) it’s The Year of the Slut…who knew? I guess this means all us sluts and queers will once again have to get up off our derrières and vote for the corporate puppet we think to be the lesser of two evils.
This is outrages. Sometimes I don’t know whose freedoms and liberty’s all those young men and woman have been fighting for, it certainly doesn’t look like it’s been the American people’s. I guess this is the New Corporate Militarized America. I’m sure we have worse to look forward to. Let’s face it, they have to keep all of their New Privatised Prisons full some how.
Don’t let anyone fool you about the right of a person to take photographs in a public place; that’s a constitutionally guaranteed right that’s protected by the First Amendment. Those who would deny you the right to take picture in a public place, have something to hide.
What a bunch of crap this is. The bold-faced lies some people tell. We have been through this all before because of these same kind of Republican policy’s. They’re feeding you the same line of bull they did in the thirty’s, the last time they crashed the markets and ran this country in the ground.
Adios Austerity! E.U. Admits Right Wing Policy Of Punishing The Poor Has Failed (VIDEO)
To the surprise of exactly no one to the Left of Grover Norquist, austerity as a sole remedy to recession has utterly failed. It’s not exactly an untested theory. We tried it here almost a century ago and it dropped us right into the Great Depression. That didn’t stop various countries in the European Union from trying it anyway. Two years later and the E.U. is still languishing behind even the United States’ anemic recovery. Continue…
What’s wrong with the people is this country? Is this the “New America” the GOP keeps saying they want? The me, me, me, screw everyone and everything else America. How heartless can people get? Over politics! Over a bunch of lying, stealing, evil, crooks! Really! Is this the only way for them to get elected? They have to lie, cheat, and bully their way into office, and when that doesn’t work they turn into the “American Taliban” terrorizing and killing children’s pets. Next (I guess) instead of the cat, it will be the kids. Very sad what’s happening to American. It seems to be a nation lost in it’s greed and ignorance.
YOU ARE COWARDS!!!
Arkansas Democratic Campaign Manager Comes Home To Find Child’s Cat Murdered, ‘LIBERAL’ Written On Dead Body
By Scott Keyes on Jan 23, 2012 at 2:20 pm
The campaign manager of Arkansas Democratic congressional candidate Ken Aden arrived home last night to find his child’s pet cat murdered on the front porch with the word “LIBERAL” scrawled across its lifeless body.
Aden’s campaign manager, Jake Burris, lives in central Arkansas with his four kids.Blue Arkansas has more on the scene at Burris’s home (emphases are ours):
Last night, Jake and his four kids had come back to their Russellville home. As they were getting out of the car, one of his children discovered their family cat dead on the front porch. One side of the animal’s head had been bashed in and an eyeball was hanging out of its socket. But there was something even more horrifying to be found on the corpse. Written across the animal’s fur in black marker was the word “LIBERAL“.
Here is a picture of the family’s murdered cat:
Pope County, where Burris lives, is a highly conservative area of Arkansas. Aden has been running for the 3rd congressional district seat, currently held by Rep. Steve Womack (R-AR), since August 2011. He released a statement on the matter this morning: “To kill a child’s pet is just unconscionable. As a former combat soldier, I’ve seen the best of humanity and the worst of humanity. Whoever did this is definitely part of the worst of humanity.”
It is unclear at this time precisely who committed this heinous act.
