Republicans know if their parents could have aborted them, they probably would have, just like America should abort the Republican party now.
Republicans are property of the corporate institute for unwanted offspring.

Wisconsin and the Great Lakes region holds some of the most beautiful natural wonders in the United States, even if they’re not as well-known as famous spots like Yosemite and the Grand Canyon. Historically, advocates in the state have worked hard to protect its environment, but all of that is starting to change as Republicans have seized control of the state legislature and Governor Scott Walker sits prepared to approve legislation that may repeal key environmental regulations, like the moratorium on sulfide mining passed in 1997 by the then-Democratic legislature.
For those not in the know, sulfide mining is a messy, polluting process. It’s used when sulfur-rich ores are mined and processed to get at the goodies inside, like gold and silver. This involves the generation of a large amount of acid waste, a historic and huge problem for the mining industry because it’s difficult to manage and contain. Wisconsin’s legislators eliminated the problem by banning sulfide mining, but mining companies have started fighting back, laying the groundwork to access the riches they think lie beneath Wisconsin’s soil. They’re arguing that mining will bring needed revenue into the state, but environmental advocates aren’t sold on the idea, concerned about the high environmental cost associated with mining.
Fox News cuts Paul Ryan a new asshole? I use Fox News as a regurgitant. Fox News is pandering lying Republican horseshit and has set the low bar for lack of investigative journalism and is no more than Rupert Murdochs’, “please vote Republican channel”.
Ryan’s speech was an apparent attempt to set the world record for the greatest number of blatant lies and misrepresentations slipped into a single political speech. On this measure, while it was Romney who ran the Olympics, Ryan earned the gold. Sally Kohn Fox News

Ask any magician and they’ll tell you that the secret to a successful magic trick is misdirection — distracting the crowd so they don’t realize how they’re being fooled.
Once upon a time conservatives supported the full disclosure of campaign contributors. Now they oppose it with their might — and magic, especially when it comes to unlimited cash from corporations. My goodness, they say, with a semantic wave of the wand, what’s the big deal?: nary a single Fortune 500 company had given a dime to the super PACs. (Even that’s not entirely true, by the way.)
Meanwhile the other hand is poking around for loopholes, stuffing millions of secret corporate dollars into non-profit, tax-exempt organizations called 501(c)s that funnel the money into advertising on behalf of candidates or causes. Legally, in part because the Federal Election Commission does not consider them political committees, they can keep it all nice and anonymous, never revealing who’s really behind the donations or the political ads they buy. This is especially handy for corporations — why risk offending customers by revealing your politics or letting them know how much you’re willing to shell out for a permanent piece of an obliging politician?
That’s why passing a piece of legislation called the DISCLOSE Act is so important and that’s why on Monday, Republicans in the Senate killed it. Again.
Republican culture warriors insist that the Obama administration is nothing short of outwardly hostile to religious institutions and people of faith. The policies the administration embraces would force the faithful to chose between their religion and the law, they claim. That has been their central objection to family planning services and civil rights legislation. It would be a better argument if it were not patently false.
In Florida, Gov. Rick Scott (R) vetoed $1.5 million in funding for the state’s 30 rape crisis centers as “unnecessary.” Now would also be a good time to remind you that Republicans in D.C. continue to block renewal of the Violence Against Women Act.
Last week, one of Mitt Romney’s top aides was unable to answer a reporter’s question about whether Romney supports the Lilly Ledbetter Fair Pay Act. The act, based on Ledbetter’s historic battle with Goodyear about unequal pay, expands the amount of time an employee has to report paycheck discrimination.
I think his campaign is a reflection of priorities we’ve seen among right-wing Republicans. Women should be barefoot and pregnant. It speaks to this assault on women’s rights and on the value of women, on attempts to ban contraception. The first George Bush was a proponent of Planned Parenthood. This extreme tilt to the right now is diminishing women, particularly when you realize that 98 percent of women have used contraception at some point.
One More Point: Ending tax breaks for churches Is the essence of separation of church and state. Ending tax breaks for religious organizations is fair and Constitutional and by no means hostile towards people who have faith in their imaginary fiends (and none in their fellow man). When people, especially religious people are allowed to steal for a time, when one tells them they can no longer steal one is saying, “what you are used to will stop, the free ride is over.” And thieves will call that war.
The only war I see concerning religion is the war to remove the parasitism that religion represents on the health of America. Let’s define the expression “religiously faithful” clearly.
Religiously Faithful: An adult who struggles with the fact that their is no Santa Clause, no Bigfoot, no Big Government, no god damn reason to give religious organizations a tax break. Religious faith doesn’t qualify one for consideration of any type and is nothing more than an idiots way to describe or anoint your chosen folks and continue to rip off America. That is the whole point. Most people have faith in something simply because they are human. Your faith is no better than mine.
Hunter S Thompson and the Killer Whores
“We have become a Nazi monster in the eyes of the whole world, a nation of bullies and bastards who would rather kill than live peacefully. We are not just whores for power and oil, but killer whores with hate and fear in our hearts. We are human scum, and that is how history will judge us. No redeeming social value. Just whores. Get out of our way, or we’ll kill you. Who does vote for these dishonest shitheads ? Who among us can be happy and proud of having all this innocent blood on our hands? Who are these swine? These flag-sucking half-wits who get fleeced and fooled by stupid little rich kids like George Bush? They are the same ones who wanted to have Muhammad Ali locked up for refusing to kill gooks. They speak for all that is cruel and stupid and vicious in the American character. They are the racists and hate mongers among us; they are the Ku Klux Klan. I piss down the throats of these Nazis. And I am too old to worry about whether they like it or not. Fuck them.”

Stalking Obama and Other Black Folk
An automobile can be and has been used to kill people. George Zimmerman, armed with a gun and in a vehicle, followed Trayvon Martin. At the very least George Zimmerman’s behavior is not friendly and after a few minutes of being on foot and followed by a stranger in a car one disadvantaged by being unarmed becomes threatened. The one on foot wonders what the person in the vehicle intends and just how bad their intentions might be. George Zimmerman by any measure is an armed racist, intending to intimidate those he stalks. Mr. Zimmerman did not stand his ground as stated, Mr Zimmerman advanced upon the ground of and threatened, illegally another person traveling vulnerably, on foot. Mr. Zimmerman is offered no relief by the “Stand your ground law”, anymore than a bank robber who, during a bank robbery, shoots a security guard dead.
The Chief of Police in the city of the murder of Trayvon Martin resigned almost instantly once the crime hit the media. The Chief left like, “I did not hire on for this shit”. He left because he was not going to be between those who wanted a justice for Trayvon he could not or would not provide and those above him who would prefer that the murder of black people be seen as a community service. The decision to let George Zimmerman walk was not made locally, it was decided by the state. A local racist murderous actions are co-opted by a state politician into conveying the message that it is a “right” to murder black people and thereby dehumanize black people and dehumanize black people as the possible re-election of a black man approaches.
A so called friend of George Zimmerman, Joe Oliver is making the rounds being interviewed by the national media. On Lawrence McDonnell, Mr. Oliver states that he has a hunch that George Zimmerman is innocent and that he has a hunch that George Zimmerman is not a racist. Joe Oliver has a hunch. And Joe states that he is not exactly a good friend of George Zimmerman’s, but only an acquaintance of George’s. But Joe has a hunch. Joe is not a witness, but Joe has a hunch. Why is this son of a bitch, Joe Oliver being offered the position of racist front man by the mainstream media? Desperate for copy?
How useless is our mainstream media, for hawking this human garbage, Joe Oliver and his hunch. Joe has quit his job to “Speak out for George”…cause he has a hunch. Joe, I say is not really speaking for George. As Joe states himself he does not really even know George. Joe is promoting George Zimmerman’s actions, because Joe, a racist puke knows nothing about George personally nor did Joe witness what George did.
Joe Oliver is advocating stalking and killing black people, but Joe Oliver doesn’t have the guts to say what Joe Oliver really believes, “Nothing is better than a good hunt.” Was Joe Oliver recruited by someone from the right, after the fact of Trayvon’s death? I wonder if someone canvassed the business that worked both Joe and George, and if someone asked who might be interested in giving a human face to a murdering racist, a monster named George Zimmerman?
“Komy 2012” emblazoned on a poster. Mr. Komy is a child raping serial killer in Africa, one of many warlords who use children soldiers. A conservative supported group of white folk formed a faux activist group: white people to the rescue of the poor helpless, hapless black Ugandans. The icon of choice of their faux activism charade is a poster of a black man and on it is written: “Komy 2012”. The Ugandans response to this faux activism, paid for by right wing interests, was, “Fuck off.” Is there anyone else who is black and will have their face on a poster with his name and “2012”? Lies and false parallels Republicans know will leave an imprint small or large on the mind of voters. With the same type of diabolical evil George Zimmerman posses the GOP goosesteps along.
One of the lowest things humans are capable of, degenerates like Joe Oliver, Hitler and those Republicans that back him, is to dehumanize an entire race of people. The Republican field of candidates and the entire Republican Party is little more than the lowest common denominator and such people can do no good for America. Republicans do not belong in office.
Republican’s are Trash,Throw Them Out of Office.
Gov. Rick Scott, his administration, and extremists in the Florida Legislature are waging an intense battle against health care for everyday Floridians. They’re doing the bidding of big insurance companies and standing in the way of beneficial reforms designed to lower health care costs, increase coverage, and get more Floridians the health care they deserve.
Floridians deserve leaders who will stand up for better health care coverage and access to protect and expand our middle class. Instead, they’re making us sick by:
GOP is SHIT
misogynists, racists and republicans and profuckthenewbornandmother.
If, only If I were in Obama’s shoes. I would repay the Republicans for pushing the Patriot Act, for pushing the NDAA and for putting me in a position where I must sign it. As President I would detain Newt and Mitt ans Paul at Guantanamo, just once, just once and maybe the remaining Republicans would be a little more cooperative.
Republican Senator James Inhofe:
“As I said on the Senate floor on July 28, 2003, “much of the debate over global warming is predicated on fear, rather than science.” I called the threat of catastrophic global warming the “greatest hoax ever perpetrated on the American people,” a statement that, to put it mildly, was not viewed kindly by environmental extremists and their elitist organizations. I also pointed out, in a lengthy committee report, that those same environmental extremists exploit the issue for fundraising purposes, raking in millions of dollars, even using federal taxpayer dollars to finance their campaigns.”
It is proper and courteous speech to refer to Senator Inhofe as a brain dead lying son of a bitch who by the way - has received money from Koch Industries. The oil firm has given nearly $25 million to climate-change denial groups. Senator Inhofe is a whore and a liar in the truest sense of the word. There is no disrespect or impropriety in saying so. Senator Inhofe, please put a gun in your mouth and pull the trigger, it is the greatest thing that you can do for your country. Thank you. Inhofe can produce no valid science to back his claims.
“We now know without a doubt that global warming is threatening us with higher temperatures, more drought, more wildfire, more flooding, and more erosion of our coastal communities. People who don’t believe this can yell about it as loudly as they want, but it doesn’t change the fact that the overwhelming scientific evidence has proven this over and over again. We must act now with the rest of the world to curb emissions so that we can leave our children a safer, healthier planet.”
The Earth as an ecosystem is changing, attributable in great part to the effects of globalization and man. More carbon dioxide is now in the atmosphere than has been in the past 650,000 years. This carbon stays in the atmosphere, acts like a warm blanket, and holds in the heat — hence the name ‘global warming.’
The reason we exist on this planet is because the earth naturally traps just enough heat in the atmosphere to keep the temperature within a very narrow range – this creates the conditions that give us breathable air, clean water, and the weather we depend on to survive. Human beings have begun to tip that balance. We’ve overloaded the atmosphere with heat-trapping gasses from our cars and factories and power plants. If we don’t start fixing the problem now, we’re in for devastating changes to our environment. We will experience extreme temperatures, rises in sea levels, and storms of unimaginable destructive fury. Recently, alarming events that are consistent with scientific predictions about the effects of climate change have become more and more commonplace.
Republican leaders are already proposing new plans that would undo last summer’s budget agreement. That means Medicare and Medicaid could be put back on the chopping block - all so the super rich don’t have to pay their fair share.
Don’t let irresponsible Republican persistence cut Medicare and Medicaid. Watch our new video and sign our petition to send a strong message: American families WON’T tolerate cuts to health care to pay for tax giveaways for giant corporations and the super rich.
“Those Republican Shiteaters don’t think much of we the little people!”
The GOP’s opposition has nothing to do with Richard Cordray or his qualifications, and everything to do with the party’s opposition to the very existence of an agency in Washington dedicated to educating consumers about and protecting them from the abusive practices of the financial sector — like those that caused the financial crisis, when conservative opposition to sensible financial regulations allowed banisters to run amok.
The Senate on Thursday blocked President Obama’s nominee to head the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau, as filibustering Republicans who oppose the very powers of the new agency successfully challenged one of the administration’s main responses to the financial crisis.
GOP is SHIT.
