Republican Congress - the Meanest Mess Makers Ever....

Vermont candidate to prosecute Bush if she wins By JOHN CURRAN AP 9/19/08

Eighhhhhhhhhhhht looooong years of being bulls eyed and bushwhacked. Reason number ONE why I'd never vote for a Republican president! Not at this juncture. Before the Republican congress lost to the Democrats, Republican rule was mean, elitist and was completely obstructionistic....because congress was solely there to do the bidding of the bush administration. No doubt about that. In an odd turn of events the Democrats tried on the leadership hat and have not been able to bring the congress to a place where the citizens feel that their government is working for them. Increasing awareness of doubt across this land of 'us little people' should have been minimized after the Democrats took over. For me, I think it was all of the subpoenas that the Senate committees sent out to people in the bush administration, that were blatantly ignored. All of those hearings without justified closure and justice served. It made the Democratic congress look weak. So, therefore, the entire congress looked weak and inept. No thanks to the Republicans who made a million messes over the years. Great goddess, can you imagine a plain old citizen sending a note to a judge for traffic court or a murder trial, saying "No, I will not honor your honor?" This act of pure disregard for the law by the bush administration taught our younger citizens that some people don't have to follow the law all of the time. What a nasty blotch on our country's reputation around the world. The Republicans had had congress for a long time. They sort of still do. So, is it any wonder that the Democrats are still trying to balance the job of cleaning house and doing congressional chores?!? The Democrats, however, have gone over the top with their vision of what the people need. Not what the people want, but "what they need?" The religious spouting - GAWD awful is what that is. Giving Loony and corny reasons for their dismal approval rating. They can't fathom that they are being included in the numbers. Dear congress - hello, "All of you" you are all part of the problem....reason for your dismal approval rating. plain and simple. If they are a believen' that this is the way the meek inherit the earth, Goddess help us. And what is this mixing church and state junk? Better get off that bible thumping, proverb slapping soap box, cuz its maken' people tune you out congress. Especially the ones thumping for Senator Obama. I won't vote for McCain or me, in my opinion, mine alone...they are both part of the problem now, not the solution. I've been attempting to find something about each one, something presidential, something commander and chiefish. Nope, can't find it and don't hear it in their speeches. That is 'Reason number TWO' why I'm writing in Hillary. In the next several weeks I'm gonna post stuff that concerns me about the Republican congress....where they should've gave pause, should've considered, where they needed to bend and where they brought this country to date. The Democrats don't get a free pass either. When I decided to Write-In Hillary, I also took into account that the election process and voting machines were messed up by Republican NeoCons too. But the (D)'s get lumped in there now because they won't discuss the elephant in the room, so to speak. So, I figure that my write in has a much better chance of getting through than a pre-printed presidential candidate's name. don't ya think?

The World Can't Wait Friday, September 08, 2006

"My conversations with others rarely center on anything political, its typically about local everyday happening. What used to be simple everyday pleasures or planned time off moments...They're being constantly consumed by things that cause stress and worry. Like never before - it just keeps on growing. You can see 'it' in more faces and hear 'it' in more voices....And it ain't fear from the threat of terrorism."

"About 2,000 illegal immigrants, part of a record 26,500 held across the United States by federal authorities, will call the 10 giant tents home for weeks, months and perhaps years before they are removed from the United States and sent back to their home countries."

"Most people when they go homeless still have a great amount of pride and dignity and don’t usually approach people for money."

New Orleans City Leaders ~ Somewhere Under the Radar Monday, July 31, 2006

"I decided that day to become a card carrying Democrat (like my Mom and her family - long ago immigrants from Ireland), until Walter Mondale and Geraldine Ferraro lost the election. The backbone of our economy the blue, pink and gray collar worker and the over all mainstream working class were hit pretty hard after that presidential election."

"Several years ago in Minnesota,, an important law that kept landlords accountable, helped to sustain reasonable rents and helped to preserve affordable housing, vanished out of law. It gave landlords credit for keeping rents at affordable rates, not market rates. With the laws - ordinance time line finished, it didn't take long to see the awful impact on some families and individual renters. Minnesota (the land of principled social safety nets) was the most unlikely place to see social neglect happening, but it was and still is today. Can you imagine the rest of the country?"

LA's Homeless Blog Where Do They Go, If A Tent City Is Dismantled? Tuesday, September 09, 2008

"This is the question that folks in Tennessee are asking. They state that there are nearly two dozen homeless camps around Nashville, the capital. And one large encampment is planning to be dismantled."

COMMENT:Caleb Childers said...
I believe that more permanent housing needs to be provided. We have seen in the past how temporary housing has worked out for the homeless, especially in the recently destroyed tent city in Ontario, CA.

Suburban Tent City? North America Housing Reuters Posted by: Michael Dudley at December 24, 2007

Tent city in suburbs is cost of home crisis By Dana Ford reuters Fri Dec 21, 2007

"the once-booming suburbia of Southern California."

"House prices are going down, but the rentals are sky-high," said Steve. "If it wasn't for here, I wouldn't have a place to go."

So let’s get this out of the way right now. I hate both American political parties for different reasons."

"See, I’m a Bad American."

BEST COMMENT: Daniella May 25, 2008

I agree with being a “Bad American” as you so well described it. I think that many others now are set to re-evaluate what is this supposed “best standard of living” which has been offered as a trade-off for not having health care which is portable, some kind of dignified assistance for our weakest members such as children, poor people, seniors and now unfortunately badly damaged veterans.

I heard that a MN group is attempting to file for the arrest of GWB himself on the grounds of war crime. Check it out in the MN Startribune.

I know it won’t happen but what a notion!
