"Morning Papers" - It's Origins

The Rooster

I don't regret my confidence in the Dems.

I don't regret my vote and never will.  I don't miss 'bad government.'  I don't miss the lies and the deceptions.  I don't miss being played for a fool.  I don't miss the anti-American agenda.  I welcome all the change President Obama and the majority Congress has brought and I look forward to more of the same to reclaim my country.  I know the Founding Fathers of the USA are breathing a sigh of relief with the Democratic leadership that works  as hard as they do to 'right the ship.'  It isn't going to be easy and it won't happen with rhetoric.

In 2008, the American people elected the best man into office. Don't hurt yourself again by going 'back' instead of forward.

President Obama and the Democrats have been more productive in less than two years than most presidents in eight years.

What Has Obama Done For U.S. Lately? Plenty! (click title to entry - thank you)

Believe President Obama has been ineffective? Think again!

Barack Obama has become the whipping boy poster child for everything wrong in our country right now. The ease with which the right bandies about slander would be funny if it weren’t so scary. President Obama has enacted an inordinate amount of legislation and policy changes that will benefit the United States for decades to come but that doesn’t stop the detractors from claiming he “is destroying America.”...

...President Obama has spent all or part of 26 days "on vacation" during his first year as president, according to CBS News White House Correspondent Mark Knoller. President Reagan, in 1981, spent all or part of 42 days away from the White House "on vacation" at his home in Santa Barbara, California. President George W. Bush took a total of 77 "vacation" trips to his Texas ranch while in office, nine of them — all or part of 69 days — came during his first year as president in 2001. President George H.W. Bush took six trips — spanning all or part of 40 days — to the Bush family compound in Kennebunkport, Maine, in 1989, his first year. President Jimmy Carter spent just 19 days "on vacation" in 1977 and President Bill Clinton took 21 "vacation" days during his first year.
The President’s vacation days are minor when compared to the myriad of complaints that his opposition touts. Lies, half-truths, distortions, exaggerations, innuendo, and flat-out ridiculous accusations have been thrown out. Interested in knowing what he’s been doing in Washington for the past 20 months or so? Try turning off the cable and talk radio to find out what has been happening on the hill at If you don’t have time to do your own exploration, here is a short summary of a few things President Obama has accomplished in the past 20 months....

You heard it first here. Where is the USA going to compete, it is already defeated in Australia.

When is the USA going to wake up to its own reality?  When is it going to realize 'the consumer' of the USA is a slave to a Chinese economy?  Where are all these jobs from the Right Wing actually coming from?

China’s Rise Curbs US Influence in Australia  (click title to entry - thank you)

By Rocky Vega

09/24/10 Stockholm, Sweden – Michael Pascoe, writing for Australia’s The Age, argues the US has nowhere near the potent influence on China many assume, despite that idea’s widespread belief. He tackles in particular the unassailable concept of the US consumer, suggesting this group not only fails to support practically all of China’s expansion, as is so often implied by the media, but is in fact only responsible for a measly-sounding 0.3 percent of China’s often double-digit GDP growth....

Where is the USA going to compete?

Now that the Bush Dynasty has robbed the USA treasury and exported all the monies to China, so it can throw $100 billion into a 'deal' with HP to produce products in Taiwan, where is the USA going to compete?

What products is the USA going to manufacture that will compete in a global economy with countries that treat their labor like chattel and ship goods everywhere regardless of the issues of carbon dioxide emissions?

The USA has to  'reclaim' its economy and stop allowing Third World treatment of people THAT ARE NOW DOING THEIR JOBS !!!!

The reason the Plutocracy is so VILE, is because of their practices.  They not only robbed the USA of every dime they could find, they moved their production plants to countries where people are paid subsistence wages IF THEY ARE LUCKY. 

And USA consumers actually purchase those products.  Without a thought to the conditions the people in other countries are 'surviving' in, we simply purchase them. 

I don't.

I make sure everything I purchase is made in a country where citizens are regarded as important and vital to their country's interest.

I want people to consider what they are doing.  Purchasing merchandise from China 'empowers' China to build more weapons and expand its influence.  Do you want China's influence globally or that democracy and peace?  Do you want citizens to be regarded as important to their countries or simple 'laborers' that produce an income to the treasury? 

Where have Americans put their morality, "on the shelf?"  When it comes to purchasing 'cheap' goods and food, where is the pride in that? 

Wait.  Let me guess.  It is okay to purchase cheap goods, but, expect them to be COMPLETELY safe as if there were inspectors to ENFORCE laws that make producers care.

So, purchasing 'cheap eggs' and getting samonella in them isn't to be expected when one is paying absolutely nothing for them to begin with?  Is that right?

I've never had a problem with the eggs I purchase because they are either raised locally from 'range fed' chickens or purchased from 'moral content' producers that carry pride in their products and put it on the carton.  "THESE CHICKENS WERE NOT CAGED."

You know.  All that 'hippy' stuff.

The Republcians are absolutely right. Small businesses making over $250,000 per year will create jobs. JOBS IN OTHER COUNTRIES !!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Do you understand that concept? "Burning down the house." Do you understand it?

Because if you do, you could never again justify a vote for a Republican of any venacular. 

What occurred under Bush and Cheney was exactly that.  They took EVERY fiscal reserve available to them and 'drained the swamp' of any assets within the USA Government.

I don't care where it was, they raided this country and then set a course for disaster to destroy it so they couldn't be held accountable.

They even wanted to drain Social Security.

$2 tillion to 'privately finance' Social Security.

Set aside $2.4T for seniors as well as younger workers (click title to entry - thank you)

I’m going to set aside $2.4 trillion of Social Security surplus. That’s $2.4 trillion more in payroll taxes than we owe the seniors, which means there is a really interesting opportunity to make sure we not only fulfill the promises to the seniors but we have a social security system that is hopeful for younger workers. We must let younger workers take a portion of their payroll taxes and put it in the marketplace. The agents of the status quo have misread the people.

This election isn't about 'dreamscapes.'  It is about serious issues and what the future holds.  It isn't about 'bring alive' the past.  It is about the future needs of the country and the path it is heading on.  We have made incredible progress under the Obama Administration.  The people of the USA should be proud of that.  He sincerely cares about the country and its people. 
THINK  PEOPLE.  I really don't believe we are actually thinking so much as being lead around by Plutocrats that have 'no interest' in what is best for the country's populous so much as what is good for Wall Street. 
I mean it..
Do NOT elect people that will take away everything previous generations have worked for to provide 'a better life' for their children.  We are their children and the Plutocracy has ONCE destroyed their 'dreams for us' already.

"Burning Down the House" by Talking Heads from the album "Speaking in Tongues"

Watch out you might get what you're after

Cool baby strange but not a stranger
I'm an ordinary guy
Burning down the house

Hold tight wait 'til the party's over
Hold tight we're in for nasty weather
There has got to be a way
Burning down the house

Here's your ticket pack your bag; time for jumpin' overboard
Transportation is here
Close enough but not too far, maybe you know where you are
Fightin' fire with fire

All wet yeah you might need a raincoat
Shakedown thieves walking in broad daylight
Three hundred sixty five degrees
Burning down the house

It was once upon a place sometimes I listen to myself
Gonna come in first place
People on their way to work say baby what did you expect
Gonna burst into flame

My house S'out of the ordinary
That's right Don't want to hurt nobody
Some things sure can sweep me off my feet
Burning down the house

No visible means of support and you have not seen nothing yet
Everything's stuck together
I don't know what you expect staring into the TV set
Fighting fire with fire

Burning down the house

You have got to be JOKING !!!!!!!!!!! Everyone of these people are manufactured from the Murdoch Plutocratic Machine.


NO !!!!!

To themselves, but, not to the country.  They are no more patriots than 'The Crown' itself !

They 'have plans.' 

Not intentions to govern.

But, PLANS !!!!!

The Preamble to "Lemon Pledge" is really amazingly done. It captured the hate and lies of the past two years and put them into pretty words and a fanciful presentation.

 people can govern themselves

powers are derived from the consent of the governed

economic, political, and religious liberty

advance themselves, their families, and the common good

 determine their own destiny

the agenda of government becomes destructive of these ends

 a new governing agenda and set a different course

enshrined in the Constitution

endured through hard sacrifice and commitment by generations of Americans - generations of Americans that passed all the Amendments to the US Constitution. 

unchecked executive, a compliant legislature, and an overreaching judiciary

scorning the deepest beliefs of the American people

arrogant and out-of-touch ruling class

joblessness, crushing debt, and a polarizing political environment


It goes on and on and on with all the superlatives of hate, division, defiance and lies.

Wow, a real 'Preamble' just like the old days. "...America is an idea..." Really?

An idea with nuclear weapon capacity.  I think its more than an idea and "America" is NOT the only country on the face of the planet to practice the principles of LIBERTY, FREEDOM AND THE PURSUIT OF HAPPINESS.

Let's see.  There is Canada, Great Britain, Germany, well let's just say all of Europe.  Then there is St. Petersburg which may as well be Europe.  There there the southern hemisphere.  If South America isn't about keeping the people happy then I don't know what is.  And don't forget about Australia and New Zealand.  Johannesburg and all those FORMER colonies. 

When one really looks at the globe.  If there happens to be one on your desk, there is a whole lot of folks that practice democracy and freedom and darn well try to pursue happiness. 

The pursuit of happiness really gets muddied up in the USA.  It is always attached to 'status' and 'wealth.'  In most of the world, including Europe, happiness doesn't come with a price tag.  Health doesn't either, but, that is an entirely different subject.  Or is it?

At any rate, I am a liitle miffed at the 'idea' that the country I LOVE and the historical documents I ADMIRE are being used as a method of 'political monkey business.'
So, to the content of this mess...

The ADOPTION of the US Constitution occurred on September 17, 1787.

Much of the wording of those historical documents resulted from 'the language of the time.'  It had dearly little to do with abiding to a belief in any other authority than the governance of the people elected to lead the country.

Never once, did the US Constitution ever intend to replace The President, Congress and Courts with sovereign authority of a church of any kind.  For God sake they just finished fighting years and years of war to rid themselves of entanglements with royalty that demanded 'the subjects' worship one god in one church.  Whatever gives the Right Wing political elements in the USA the idea they can actually 'ride' the rest of the country for the sake of Socail Conservative values and completely disregard the values of others?  What the heck?  And people are actually voting for these 'icons' of deception?  Wow.

The Revolutionary War started in 1775. It started before the Declaration of Independence.

The beginning of unrest was due to the fact the King of England didn't extend "The Rights of Englishmen" to the colonists.  Due to that the colonists rejected the legitimacy of 'The Crown' to dictate law.

Basically, the colonists weren't extended CIVIL RIGHTS by 'The Crown.' 

What started as an argument between the colonies and the King ended as a global war.  As a matter of fact, it could be argued it was actually the first world war.

It encompassed the powers of many countries to defeat the English in 'The Americas.'  The colonists accumulated allies.  The British Isles were very powerful.  The war to 'back' the colonists was a way of other sovereign authorities to dilute the power of England.  England has wealth and with wealth came power directly from its 'colonial lands.'  The 13 colonies of The Americas were providing Britain with great deal of wealth. 

So.  To disillusion the populous of the USA to believe this 'dreamscape' that exists due to 'Populous Politics' and put the history of the country in a neat little package to provide an impetus to a 'so called' new party based on history is grossly in disrespect of the actual suffering of the people of those times.

The Revolutionary War lasted a long time.  It didn't end until 1783.  It was a war of blood and bone.  People suffered and died.  I don't think that is taken seriously by the people that would seek to 'REPRESENT' the past and THE PURITY of our country. 

The United States of America was 'won' by a global community, NOT simply a group of colonists determined to 'start a new venture.' 

When people say, "The Founding Fathers," in the year 2010 it is almost as though it is a caricature of the past.  A contrived truth.  There is absolutely no reverences by the Tea Party or the Republicans to the ABSOLUTE truth of our ancestory and absolutely no reverence for the actual suffering of the people 'of the time.' 

Then the Year was 1776, and Thomas Jefferson wrote and passed to the congress, and the congress signed it.

July 4, 1776.

That was just the beginning.  It was the first act of autonomy for the 13 British colonies.
It's Sunday Night.

Desert loving in your eyes all the way

When we cling our love is strong
When you go you're gone forever
