Dear John Boehner:

How can you, John Boehner, beat the podium, screaming that the War on Women is fiction, when YOUR party, the Republican party, overwhelmingly voted AGAINST The Lilly Ledbetter Act, The Violence Against Women Act & now filibustered Equal Pay for Women. Plus, almost shutting down Government over the de-funding of Planned Parenthood. And the reason to vote AGAINST the Violence Against Women Act was that the 2012 version included protection of gay, illegal & Native American women. Also over 1,100 bills proposed by Republicans across this country restricting a woman’s right to choose her own health care & reproductive rights. Plus bills actually signed into law letting employers decide whether or not a woman’s need for contraception fits THEIR moral standards. The Blunt/Rubio Amendment was the single most disgusting piece of legislature THAT DAY. Passing laws allowing doctors to LIE to their patients if it will prevent an abortion. Wanting to make being a single mother a crime/child abuse. Forcing a woman to get an UNNECESSARY vaginal ultrasound when seeking an abortion AND making HER pay for it, including rape & incest victims.

No War on Women? Speaker Boehner?

Well please re read everything I listed. I didn’t make this up, YOUR party enacted these policies that are beyond anti-women. How can the War on Women be fake when all of these things actually happened? I think you’re the single worst Speaker of the House this country has ever seen and what does THAT say when this country had Newt Gingrich as its Speaker. You have NO idea how to wrangle in your Tea Party Congressmen, you give those press conferences with a smug look on your orange face WHILE lying the whole time. And anyone with a logical thought process knows that the War on Women, wrapped around the very fake “War on Religious Freedom” is the biggest bunch of bologna coming out of the Republican party in 2012. Maybe, just maybe that “argument” could have some merit to it IF “religious freedom” means ALL religions. So until the GOP starts to fight for ALL religious freedom, sit down & shut up because any American with common sense KNOWS it’s bullshit.

 It’s amazing that you have the audacity to say it’s The President’s fault for not passing a jobs bill, when YOU won’t even give 10% of anything, & you blame The President? Holding unemployment benefits hostage just to make sure the disastrous Bush tax cuts were extended, and you still say The President won’t compromise? Allowing the debt ceiling to expire, which has NEVER happened before. YOUR party did that. Not the President. YOUR party. Yet you say the President refuses to compromise? Which is code for “He MUST give us EVERYTHING because if President Obama doesn’t, he hates America.” Right? I mean that sounds about right.

All you are trying to do is convince the most ignorant of Americans that the GOP is all about jobs jobs jobs when in fact, you guys are about anything BUT jobs. Jobs is code for “abortion.” Having a frivolous & pathetic vote about making sure “In God We Trust” stays on the bill is way more important than finding a way to create jobs. You & your party are liars, hypocrites & in the last year & a half, proven to hate anyone who doesn’t have a white penis. Am I wrong? NO. Why? Because EVERYTHING I’ve listed & pointed out is the truth & a lot of them are policies. YOUR party’s policies. And look at that, not one policy that includes the creation of one freakin’ job. Unless you think all the jobs are in a woman’s vagina.

Once, just once, I’d like to see you tell the truth from that podium during your press conferences. Is that really too much to ask? Maybe so, since you are really bad at your job. And thanks Rachel Maddow for pointing THAT out so brilliantly.

So go ahead and keep thinking you’re fooling the country. Keep having conferences about jobs and blame the President about no jobs and keep screaming that it’s the President who is not compromising … WHILE your party is voting on a bill about selective gender abortions. Another FAKE “issue.” … Just keep on doing THAT, Speaker.

Jesus Was A Socialist

so·cial·ism

 

theory or system of social organization that advocates the vesting of the ownership and control of the means of production and distribution, of capital, land, etc., in the community as a whole.

Republicans have turned this into a dirty word. A four letter dirty word. It’s almost as bad as the abortion word.

To be honest, I don’t know who I am talking about more. Republicans, or psycho Christians. I went to Catholic school and all I remember from Religion class was that Jesus was about giving, giving, giving. When you’re destitute, you still give that last dollar to someone even more destitute than you. So what am I missing here, religious people? You have turned giving into the most evil of gestures.

What I have witnessed since the 2008 Presidential campaign has been the most blatant form of hypocrisy that I have ever seen. Do as I say, not as I do – type of crap. And it all has to do with Religion, and thus, Republicans.

My early theory is this: I think these Republican politicians and pundits feel they can say whatever they want, because they can just go and confess their lies on Sunday. Okay that’s a little high-schoolish but I am astonished at their behavior. The Republicans who claim to be the most Religious, are the least Christ-like.

I find it stunning the brazen hatred towards poor people, and the working poor, by Republicans … and then claim to be Christian. That goes against EVERYTHING Jesus stood for. The fact that Republicans fought with all their might to make sure the wealthy got THEIR tax extensions, and now want to take away jobs and benefits from people, who on average, make about $50,000.00/year, is so NOT what Jesus would do.  

Do not take advantage of a hired man who is poor and needy.” – Deuteronomy 24:14

Hmmm, that doesn’t sound like what Gov. Walker is doing in Wisconsin. Sure doesn’t sound like any Republican actually. Republicans love to talk about God and the Bible but they sure don’t want to live by it. Take Mike Huckabee for instance. Lately, he has been spewing such judgement and almost hate-filled venom that it’s hard to believe he’s an actual ordained Baptist Minister. I mean does he even listen to what he is preaching? What is he preaching?

Jesus said to him, “If you would be perfect, go, sell what you possess and give to the poor, and you will have treasure in heaven; and come, follow me.” – Matthew 19:21

 I wonder if Mr. Huckabee did a sermon on this GOSPEL verse. Probably not, since he now has a PSA out about repealing Health Care. Yes, Mike Huckabee did a PSA, or infomercial, getting people to call their Congress reps. and tell them to repeal Health Care. Nice. He wants people to be denied coverage if they have pre-existing conditions. He wants children to be denied coverage because of their pre-existing conditions. He wants you to NOT be able to choose your own physician. In reality, he wants the poor to continue to suffer. No other explanation. Because that’s what Jesus would want. Jesus would want a family of four to go into medical debt and lose everything they own. Right Mike? Right.

 The attack on the poor and working poor with this new Congress is terrifically disgusting. The lying that’s going on is breathtaking. Starting with calling their Health Care Repeal a ‘job-killing’ bill. That’s a lie. Lying about what Planned Parenthood does. Another lie. John Boehner said, “Over the last two years since President Obama has taken office, the federal government has added 200,000 new federal jobs,” That’s a lie. I could go on. But would Jesus approve of all this lying?

Again with Mike Huckabee, doing an interview and talking about how President Obama grew up in Kenya. LIE. Then he back-tracked and said he misspoke. Bull. You don’t misspeak during a whole interview. I wonder if confession will help him sleep better at night.

 I guess I want to conclude with this question: How do you Republicans sleep at night? How do you justify your actions, and also consider yourselves Christian? Everything the Republicans stand for, these days, is against everything Jesus stood for. You do get that, don’t you? Any 2nd grader in Religion class can put that together. “Mommy, I thought Jesus was about giving, and helping your neighbor, and sharing.” – How should a mother answer that AND vote Republican? Well if she’s a hypocrite like the current Republican line-up … she’ll answer just fine.

Plus all the hatred towards anyone who is not white and not Christian. Because Jesus hated anyone who didn’t look like him. I would like to see any Republican politician/pundit defend that. Tell me how Jesus would hate Muslims. Tell me how Jesus would hate Jews. Oh wait, Jesus WAS a Jew. Go figure.

Plus you have Republican Governors defending KKK members. Nice. Republican Congressmen attacking women’s right. Defending rapists. Did you ever think there would be a day in America, in 2011, that people voted in rapist sympathizers? It makes me physically ill. I really wish these so-called Christian Republicans would actually observe their own behavior, and realize that it’s so NOT what Jesus would do. Mother Teresa LIVED among the poor. I can guarantee NO Republican politician or pundit will ever dedicate their lives to that. Guarantee.

 “Because of the oppression of the weak and the groaning of the needy, I will now arise, says the LORD, I will protect them from those who malign them” – Psalm 12:5

He who despises his neighbor sins,but blessed is he who is kind to the needy.” – Proverbs 14:21

He who oppresses the poor shows contempt for their Maker, but whoever is kind to the needy honors God.” – Proverbs 14:31

He who is kind to the poor lends to the LORD, and he will reward him for what he has done.” – Proverbs 19:17

These are from your precious Bible you love to live by. Only selectively though. THESE Bible quotes are meaningless to Republicans because THE ONLY Bible verse that matters to them is the one that says, “Man Shall Not Lie Down With Man”. Right? That’s the only one Conservatives can come up with and shove down everyone’s throats. Yet the verses telling you to give to the poor, don’t turn your back on the poor, well, those are useless to Conservatives. It doesn’t help their greed and doesn’t help them personally, and more importantly, politically.
