What’s Wrong With America?

Posted in 1 by activecitizen54 on February 8, 2010

What’s Wrong With America?

Does anyone really care except the Cults of Jesus Inc haters and Right-Wing Conservatives who need to be told what to think?

Here’s just one graphic example in the rants of the drug addict and rabid republican Cults of Jesus hero.  Of course the Conservative rants against education.  With education comes enlightenment instead of blind belief and clear and conscious choices and that’s something the Conservatives and Cults of Jesus Inc work diligently to suppress.

And brought to you by FAUX NUZ poster child Glenn Beck:

This creature, the Rodeo Clown, LDS/Mormon Cults of Jesus mouthpiece is a clear and present danger to the truth.  And all of us know the racist foundation of the LDS/Mormon Church.

The Tea Party, Rush Limbaugh, Glenn Beck and FAUX NUZ are Anti-American and without a doubt present a vile and dishonest position that roughly masquerades as political criticism.  With positions as far removed from the truth as FAUX NUZ and these particular poster children where is the ability to discuss, in any rational way, the real issues that are presenting to the American Citizens today?

Americans watched the hope of Universal Health Care disappear before their eyes to the pandering of Purchased Politicians to their Corporate Communist Masters as Faux Nuz spun the “death panels” lie, the “Government Take-Over” of health care lie and whipped the ignorant into a frenzy of “Anti-Obamacare” the likes of which haven’t been seen since LBJ’s stance on Civil Rights.  An abhorrent and Anti-American position drove the lack of real debate with lies, slander and unfounded allegation that completely drowned out the voices of reason.

The reality is that Americans know the Health System is broken just like we know Congress and the Senate are populated with purchased politicians who no longer hold American interests as their focus but only self-interest of lining their pockets for the next campaign to hold on to the position of power and continue to funnel money into their pockets.

Ariana Huffington addresses these issues to their source and is dismissed on a number of levels with lies, with spin and attack.  It’s a sorry state of affairs and doesn’t bode well for a democratic process.

The Cults of Jesus Inc will be all up in arms and absolute outrage now that Judge Walker of the Prop H8 trial is a closeted Gay Man.  BFD and too bad for the Religious Right.  I’m sure Maggie  of NOM is just apoplectic over this turn of events.  Should a Gay Judge recuse himself over a Constitutional issue?  Not in this lifetime.  We are everywhere.

And we object to the continuation of the “Faith-Based” programs established by the George W Bush administration and continued through the Obama’s administration in spite of the promise to amend these practices to maintain that wall of separation between Church and State.

The Rev. Barry Lynn writes in the Huffington Post:

Speaking at the National Prayer Breakfast on February 4, President Barack Obama asserted that his administration has “turned the faith-based initiative around,” implying that his policies represent a sharp break from past practices.

That’s news to me. In fact, from where I’m sitting, the core of Obama’s faith-based initiative looks pretty much identical to the deeply problematic one created by President George W. Bush. A few tweaks on the margins don’t amount to real change.

One year after Obama announced his version of the faith-based office, civil rights and civil liberties groups such as mine are still fighting Bush-era battles over tax funding to religious groups that proselytize, job discrimination on religious grounds in public programs and lack of accountability. It’s disheartening.”

The Reverend continues:

“Our research in government databases indicates that Catholic Charities (including its various affiliates) has taken at least $521 million over the last 10 years. The Catholic bishops’ conference has corralled $304.8 million over the same period, and World Vision has taken in $405.9 million. Orthodox Union-affiliated synagogues and Jewish schools have also benefited from millions in federal grants, though government reporting methods make the precise figure impossible to ascertain.

Wouldn’t this be a conflict of interest by any ethical standard?”

No accusation here but I wonder how much of those government funds found their way into the $46 million the Cults of Jesus Inc used to promote their hate in California?  How much did they spend in Maine?  How much are they spending in Iowa now?

Isn’t it nice to know that George W Bush and President Barack H Obama are sponsors of discrimination against the LGBT Community by providing “waivers” to these “Faith-Based” hate groups?  We knew about Bush but Obama has made the claim of being “a Fierce Advocate” of the Civil Rights of LGBT Citizens.

Where is the accountability?

This just underscores the very basic issues that Americans have with the Government in total.  Where is the accountability?

We still have no clue where the TARP funds were disbursed and I could care less about “market positioning” of the Wall Street firms and Bankers who took this money. It is taxpayer money and we deserve to know where our money was spent since these Corporate Communists wouldn’t be in existence if it wasn’t for the largess of the FED with the TAX PAYER’S MONEY.

Health Care is exactly the same.  Backroom deals and Purchased Politicians perverted this much needed and noble goal and the real crying shame about it is that Americans will continue to die and go bankrupt because of greedy Corporate Communists insisting on making a profit on illness.  A sad state of affairs for the United States beyond a shadow of a doubt.

Transparency in Government is a myth that under current conditions will never be achieved.  On the point of cleaning out all the incumbents I admit I do have to agree with the Tea Baggers.  The culture of Capital Hill is one that insists upon absolute secrecy regardless of the party or the purchased politician.  George W was all too eager to invoke “State Security” as foundation for back room operations.

The hope for “real change we can count on” is rapidly dissipating with the demonstrations of late.

We believe that this time it can be different but one year plus into this we see more of the Same Old Shit Different Day.

Wake Up America!

    Often I receive responses to postings in my personal email because the opinions expressed or the commentary/ideas expressed would negatively impact the writer responding to these postings. This is the case of the “John Doe” response that I’m posting below:

    VERY nice. I’ve been making a Nazi connection to the COJ lately . . . been thinking about how the time seems ripe for a charismatic COJ leader to rise up for the “salvation” of the USA . . .

    “The voice may be against the President of the United States today and against the LGBT Community now but how long before the Talabangelists come after you because you are Jewish, Muslim, Athiest or whatever the flavor of hate today is.”

    Yes. Who do you think is next on the list for focused demonification? (I tried to compile a demon list and got this far:
    LGBT
    Atheists
    Non-Christians
    Non-violent drug offenders
    Alcohol consumers
    Tobacco consumers
    Internet/media Pirates
    Non-English Speaking Americans
    Porno/adult toy/sex aid producers/consumers
    Vegetarians
    Producers and consumers of offensive material (songs/books/films/etc. with strong content/language)
    ‘Got that far before realizing that the COJ is very much an embodiment of my high school classmates. Just naive and stupidly opinionated, ill-informed, completely sheltered, shallow and ignorant of the fact that they don’t have the skills, knowledge or finesse to wield the political power to which they feel entitled. They’re marvelous at harnessing fear and eliciting hatred (don’t you find that, as a pun is the lowest form of humor, fear mongering is the lowest form of inspiration?) but they’re clueless when it comes to crafting effective policy.
    As far as who’s next on the list, I imagine it’s just a matter of convenience. That is, whoever rears their non-COJ head first for a piece of liberty and justice. ‘Looks like it could be the cannabis law reformers. Their cause is gaining momentum these days. If that’s the case then get ready for lots of dirty hippie stereotypes to become vogue.

    It’s an ugly thing to see.

    If the LGBT come out of this decade with reasonable and humane (or at least vastly improved) status and rights in the U.S., then will that be due to a foundation set by the Obama administration?

    Will Americans vote Republican in the next elections in response to the current Republican-mandated partisan war undermining the federal government?
    or
    Will Americans vote Democrat in the next elections in response to the current Republican-mandated partisan war undermining the federal government?
    or
    Will the Tea party become a new political party to rival the Dems and the Reps? If so, then the Dems would take the elections with the Reps. split.

    See ya.

    John Doe:

    Thanks for the thoughtful comment and I can’t tell you how I’ve seen this Cults of Jesus Political movement gaining ground over the past 20 years clearly enough to set off alarm bells. These Theocratic Nazis are hell-bent on destruction of the wall of separation between Church and State as a portion of their Dominionist philosophy. This is why you hear the rally cry of “Take Back America” without ever having a clear definition of who has America now.
    This movement did not peak with the Pat Robertson run for the presidency but with the George Bush, 12-step replaced alcohol and drug addictions with religious addiction, started 2 wars looking for the end times demons Gogg and Magogg in the Middle East, faith-based presidency and this lying, murdering and treasonous bastard is the poster child for this clique, the Cults of Jesus Inc.
    In response to your questions of who is next; it is all of the above and anyone who fails to fall within the petty constructs of their belief systems.
    On the political front in the US with this mid-term election we are going to see the rise of the independent rather than hard-liners in either Republican or Democratic parties. I have faith in my fellow Americans to get out and vote because of the risks and the threats the Cults of Jesus Inc present in their actions of lies and fraud as demonstrated over the past several years. These Cults of Jesus Inc are discredited and becoming more discreditable with each lie that passes their lips.
    Sarah Palin is the poster child for the Cults of Jesus Inc at this time and someone should really check to see if the number 666 is tattooed on the side of this Caribou Barbie’s head.
    I made the grave mistake of actually listening to the performance she made at the TeaBagger’s convention and understood all too clearly that her Cults of Jesus handlers are trying to shape her into something acceptable by a larger group of Americans than the bigots and hate-mongers of the Tea Party. I see no future for this Tea Party movement because it is already de-railed by the racism, the hate-mongering and fear-mongering that drives the Cults of Jesus and is McCarthyesque in it’s reach within the public discourse today. These people are seen as “having no decency” just like Joe McCarthy. Americans are not fooled by this fear-mongering and it is our obligation to keep getting the truth out there to disarm their lies.

      From another concerned source:

      Fear is an effective motivator of the citizenry, capable of breathing life into practically any political agenda. Fear doesn’t have to be rational, and it doesn’t have to be directly related to the issues at hand. Fear mongers craftily amplify and focus fear on legitimate dangers in order to exploit the resulting political cohesion for other, more unrelated matters. Why did Germany kill six million Jews in the mid twentieth century? They were afraid not to.

      How does one oppose fear mongering? Education and relentless questioning. The citizenry needs to be informed about fear mongering and be able to recognize it. When political commentators spout only inflamed and alarmist rhetoric without offering any degree of solution or hope, then those people need to be understood as fear mongerers. When political figures make horrific, quickly disproved claims about legislation or other politicians, then the accusers need to be indelibly branded as fear mongers. The only way to drag the great Oz from behind his curtain is to become thoroughly informed and educated about that curtain.

        And I submit this for everyone to think about:

        “Why of course the people don’t want war. Why should some poor slob on
        a farm want to risk his life in a war when the best he can get out of
        it is to come back to his farm in one piece? Naturally the common people
        don’t want war neither in Russia, nor in England, nor for that matter in
        Germany. That is understood. But, after all, it is the leaders of the
        country who determine the policy and it is always a simple matter to
        drag the people along, whether it is a democracy, or a fascist
        dictatorship, or a parliament, or a communist dictatorship. Voice or no
        voice, the people can always be brought to the bidding of the leaders.
        That is easy. All you have to do is tell them they are being attacked,
        and denounce the peacemakers for lack of patriotism and exposing the
        country to danger. It works the same in any country.”
