What You Dipshits Just Voted For

When Reagan was in office in 1981-1988, the Heritage Foundation* said, and I quote, “We want to bring America back to the Pre New Deal era so we can compete with the 3rd world.” The notion is that all of the New Deal programs make the US economy uncompetitive with the 3rd World countries who don’t have them. So if you like New Deal programs, you’re a total asshole for voting Republican! Exactly what do you think you’re doing? If you hate the New Deal and want to get rid of it, then you’re certainly doing the proper thing by voting Republican.
The Heritage Foundation then said, “We will never have the votes to do away with the Department of Education, Social Security, Medicare and Medicaid. The way to do away with those programs is to bankrupt the system.” This is what Republican Administrations have been doing all this time they are in office – deliberately running up insane deficits for no good reason with wild tax cutting followed by huge increases in the military and intelligence budgets. Lately, they threw in some actual hot wars for good measure. Military Keynesianism?
Every Republican asshole you meet, every Republican asshole politician and the entire news media is utterly silent about budget deficits and the national debt while the Republicans are deliberately running them sky high for no good reason.
Then as soon as a Democrat has the Presidency, they scream, yell and carry on about the debt and the deficit and demand cuts! The Democrat meekly cuts everything in sight that he possibly can, in Clinton’s case, even balancing the budget and producing a surplus. They get no credit for this, and Republican assholes still scream, “Tax and spend! Tax and spend! Tax and spend! Tax and spend!” Then a Republican comes in and deliberately bankrupts the state again for no good reason and every Republican asshole you know suddenly doesn’t care anything about deficits or the debt.
Isn’t that despicable?
So you see the agenda here is to deliberately bankrupt the state in order to roll back the New Deal. In recent years, Republicans have been getting bolder. Newt Gingrich was explicit that getting rid of the New Deal was on his agenda. A slew of Tea Party candidates have also been quite explicit about rolling back 80 years of progress. Of course the corporate media is ecstatic because they’ve always hated the New Deal.
Under Bush, devious plans were unrolled called Social Security privatization and Medical Savings Accounts. These are sneaky roundabout ways of getting rid of both Medicare and Social Security. It’s no secret that Medicare, Social Security and the Department of Education have been on the Republican hit list for a long time now, probably ever since they were created. If you know of any Republican officeholders who don’t want to get rid of these programs, can you point them out to me?
At the same time, as we might expect, the Republicans are totally devious about their agenda. They lie and insist they want to “save” these programs and not kill them. They make up phony lies about fake budget shortfalls that show these programs going bankrupt soon. So we had to destroy the village to save it, and we had to destroy these programs in order to save them.
Why the Department of Education is on the chopping block is beyond me, but for some weird reason, it’s #1 on the Republican hate list. One would think that an advanced First World country would have a Department of Education in their national cabinet, no? Sure, some 3rd world shitholes might not have one, but what kind of model society is that?
*The Heritage Foundation is the favorite institution of Uncle Milton and AJ in the comments section, since they are always quoting their dubious Index of Economic Freedom. I don’t know about their weenie little Index of Economic Freedom, but I checked out another weenie index by the Heritage twits’ buddies, Freedom House. Freedom House has an Index of Freedom. The least free countries are mysteriously all leftwing. Rightwing countries are never below the middle of the list, no matter if they are slaughtering 10’s of 1,000’s of their people, hey, it’s all good, bro.
Now that we see in the quotes above what assholes the Heritage Foundation are, why would I read any Index of Anything these turds come up with? Gimme a reason?

  1. Bob,
    In the battle between gentle, bearded leftwingers and dickwaddery, dickwaddery unfortunately always wins.
    Us gentle bearded lefttwingers must realize that regardless of defeats we always have the moral high ground, after all christ was the earliest and greatest of the tribe, but other luminaries such as Che and DH Lawrence are also worthy.
    Back to the question in hand, no sane, unbiased, rational obeserver can really doubt that George W Bush was the author of the economic meltdown with his mad policies – the poor skinny Kenyan kid is getting the blame and is left to pick up the pieces.Of course Tea Partiers and allied cunts have the full backing of Fox News, billionaires and Maddison Avenue to produce neat, slick lies to con the dick-wads, dick-wads never learn.
    And the fact that racism against Obama was the decisive and unspoken factor with which the plutocrats behind the Tea Party won

    Mom in Spain Happy That Her 10-Year-Old Gave Birth
    Published November 03, 2010 | Associated Press

    MADRID — A Romanian Gypsy woman whose 10-year-old daughter just gave birth in Spain says she’s delighted to have a new granddaughter and doesn’t understand why the birth has shocked anyone — let alone become an international sensation.
    Spanish authorities have released few details about the case to protect the girl’s privacy.
    But in comments published Wednesday, her mother told reporters the baby’s father is a 13-year-old boy who is still in Romania and is no longer going out with her daughter.
    The 10-year-old girl and her baby daughter plan to stay in Spain because the young couple separated, said the girl’s mother. She identified herself only as Olimpia and appeared to be in her 30s but did not give her age.
    She also said she didn’t understand the attention the case was generating because she and her daughter are Romanian Gypsies, or Roma, and their custom is to allow girls to marry young even though that’s against the law in Romania.
    “That’s the way we get married,” the girl’s mother told reporters Tuesday outside the modest apartment building in the southern town of Lebrija where the family lives.
    Meanwhile, the story was going viral on the Internet and causing an uproar in Spain.
    “Mother at 10 years old” blared a headline in Barcelona’s La Vanguardia newspaper, which dedicated two pages to the story.
    The girl moved to Spain about three weeks ago, her mother said, and her baby was born in a public hospital last week in the nearby city of Jerez de la Frontera. There were no complications during the birth, and the 10-year-old and her baby are doing fine, her mother said.
    “She’s doing well and is very happy with her daughter,” the woman said.
    Under Spanish law, having consensual sex with someone under age 13 is classified as child abuse. But a Justice Ministry official said this particular case is complicated, because the alleged father is not in Spain and is also a minor. It is not clear whether he could be charged, said the official, who spoke on condition of anonymity because of ministry policy.
    Romanian law allows girls to get married at age 16 with parental consent, or at 18 without it.
    But arranged “marriages” between teenagers are relatively common among Roma, who make up about 1.5 million of Romania’s 22 million people. Families “marry off” daughters when they reach puberty, with the “husband” usually being a couple of years older. The marriages are not recognized by the state.
    Roma girls are often not encouraged to pursue a full education, and Romanian authorities do not widely enforce education laws that require children to attend school until age 16.
    In 2003, there was an international outcry after the European Union envoy to Romania, Baroness Emma Nicholson, demanded that a 12-year-old Roma girl and her 15-year-old common-law husband separate and cease all intimate relations until they were legally able to be married.
    News about the 10-year-old mother barely registered in Romania, with stories buried inside newspapers focusing on the controversy the birth had caused among Spaniards.
