Things are rather quiet in the old hometown today, but a blogger that went by the name of Jared has come out to give his full name and is now taking the high road; insisting everyone do the same. It didn't take long for him to get his first challenge. Jared is new to the forum; I think it's pretty arrogant of him to start dictating policy....I've noticed the persons that were banned with a screen name, came back using their real name 'cause they had to; then they started lecturing to everyone about hiding behind screen names. What's good for the goose might not be good for the gander.... To each, their own.
I just can't believe that the media is falling for all the crap the republicans feed them. The republicans are the best thing since sliced bread because they have grouped together to ban earmarks. What a crock, earmarks are less than half of 1% of the budget and it's more of a superficial feeling of spending cuts. The media should be concentrating on the fact that the GOP is campaigning heavily for the top 2%, yet they want to cut benefits for the unemployed.Yesterday, the GOP was able to filibuster the Paycheck Fairness Act which would allow women to receive equal pay for equal work... According to the National Women’s Law Center,women usually get paid 77¢ to a dollar of what a man doing the same type the work gets... For minority women, it's 61 cents to a dollar for African-American women and 52¢ to every dollar for Latinas.. This past election the female vote went primarily to the GOP; that's the thanks they get.
Fox and Rush Limbaugh are going down on an all out media blitz to derail president Obama. Roger Ailes just said that Obama is a far left socialist and Rush is raising the racial rhetoric by accusing Democratic leaders of racism for attempting to put Congressman Jim Clyburn to the "back of the bus," he has depicted Clyburn as a chauffeur driving Miss Nancy on his website. Rush just said ""Barack Obama's presidency is graffiti on the walls of American history." Where is the FCC to control what goes over the airways?
Saturday, I’m going to Austin to be back amongst the folks... The left wing Mecca center of Texas..:-)
