So folks are asking me….Me! Who I’ll be voting for in the GE. Can’t imagine why anyone wants my opinion on this….

..since mostly my opinions on ‘stuff’ tends to piss people off. Well…..

I have not made up my mind yet but here some of the things I’ve been reading while I make up my mind:

Lambert on what Shake’s thinks…..it ain’t pretty if yer a Obama supporter. But…. politics is a bare knuckled sport ya know.

And we do want to know the truth…

Don’t we?

Lambert in her own words on Senator ‘Hope’……Whoops….Lambert ‘edited’ a comment wherein I referred to Senator ‘Hope’ as “Lieberman in ‘blackface'”. Like many in the ‘sphere Lambert doan
wanna get tarred with the moniker ‘racist’. So sensitive is she that I’ve agreed to not subject myself to her editorial policies. So here instead of a long five page post she wrote about Senator ‘BlackFace’ is Paul Street writing about his ‘book’:

The Audacity of Hope wherein Kos’s choice for President opines that,

‘…respect for Ronald Reagan’s supposed success in embodying what Obama calls “American’s longing for order” (p. 31)?

How about the part where Obama commends “the need to raise money from economic elites to finance elections” for “prevent[ing] Democrats…from straying too far from the center” and for marginalizing “those within the Democratic Party who tend toward zealotry” (p. 38) and “radical ideas” (like peace and justice)?’

or

He cites early Americans’ purported faith in “self-reliance,” “hard work,” and “free will” (p. 54)as the source of the early Republic’s “free market” development, ignoring slavery’s role in (a) violating the nation’s proclaimed republican virtues and (b) laying critical capital-accumulationist foundation for the early expansion of the American “free market” empire. He writes warmly of the “grand compromise” (p.75) found in the Constitutional bargain between the Northern and the Southern states – the one that approved and empowered black chattel slavery as the core, defining and federally protected political-economic institution of the U.S. South.

Quotes like these make me real damn glad I read The Defining Moment: FDR’s Hundred Days and the Triumph of Hope A great book about one of the greatest of Americans instead of a lukewarm porridige of bullshit written by a man who has yet to do anything meaningful whatsoever. And of whom, given his published comments on governance and progressive values, I expect to govern, if given the chance, just slightly to the left of Richard Milhouse Nixon. Or worse.
Next time The Hill and why she’s so ‘electable’…..

    The Clinton campaign didn’t have a healthcare plan befor it felled and they don’t have one now. Well to be honest, if everyone is a goverment employee, then the Clinton healthcare plan will work for everyone. Unfortunately some are self employed, independent contractors or work for private employors or small business. Under the Clinton healthcare plan these people would be penalized if they don’t pay for their healthcare. This means that most of your family members and friends will have their paychecks garnished. We all know that it doesn’t stop their if it is a goverment enforcement. There will be fines and then misdemeanors which is a criminal offense defined as less serious than a felony. Why did Ms. Clinton decide on this approach? It doesn’t take a rocket scientist to figure this out. Big business, big Corporation call it what you will, they want their money back and in order for Ms. Clinton to get their support in her race to presidency she is giving victory to one side (the healthcare providers) by promising to them that she will have the poeople wages garnished if they continue to give healthcare. Thus allowing her to shout the words “UNIVERSAL HEALTHCARE” This is a shady tactic and makes fools out of every american that falls for trick. The Obama healthcare plan is for the people. Poor people, middle class and rich people can rest assured that there is no tricks or penalties in the Obama healthcare plan. VOTE OBAMA!!
