Will we allow the Republicans to make the poor and the unemployed into the Jews of 1930s Germany? One of the first things the Nazis did at the start of their program for the total oppression of the Jews was to make it unlawful for them to vote. The Jews were declared treasonous, unpatriotic, unproductive and anti-German. The Republicans are saying the same things about the poor and the unemployed.

Obama's debt deal is even worse than we thought Nothing in this debt deal Obama made with the Republicans is what it looks like on the surface. A little analysis shows that both Obama and the Republicans completely misread each other.

No matter what happens on August 3, it's time to abandon this government Our government has always told us that our money we are required to put into Social Security would always be there for us when we retire. Now, for the first time, this government is telling us that is not necessarily true. This government has abandoned us.

An answer to Rob Kall's question Rob Kall asked an incisive question. Why are about 100 million Americans allowing themselves to be screwed over by the powers that be? I asked God about that and got an equivocal answer.

When the worst is the best; why Rick Perry is the best Republican candidate The Republicans are having a hard time coming up with a candidate for President. The candidates who have announced have the shared flaw of not having hit all of the points required to fulfill Republican ideology. If they'll just dig a little deeper, all the way to the bottom of the barrel, they'll find what they're looking for - Rick Perry.

Looks like Obama has come down with a case of creeping Republicanism Obama was elected on his promise of change. We assumed that he meant change from bad to better. But, his infection with Reublicanism ideology about Social Security takes things from bad to worse.

Republican history does repeat, and rhymes, and echoes Mark Twain said that history doesn't repeat, but it rhymes. He died in 1910, without the experience of the Great Depression and the Great Recession repeat performances of the Republicans. They're repeating now the same things they said then.

What it takes to be a Republican, the Loughner-Phelps/Republican connection The things it takes to be a Republican are all negatives. Insufferable arrogance, invincible ignorance, proud hypocrisy, total irrationality, deceit as a virtue, mental vacuity, and the list goes on.

Supreme Court Republicans set for more hypocrisy in the Westboro decision Watch for it. When a lawsuit against the Republican's law against union bargaining reaches the Supreme Court, the Republicans on the court will hypocritically ignore their Westboro free speech decision.
