If America is going to move forward in the right direction, we have got to address fair wages. the Republicans whine that there are too many people on State and Federal assistance... but the reason is simply that people have steadily becoming the working poor with wages so low that they now qualify for assistance!! A single parent living on these low wages cannot afford to pay for their rent,utilities,and daycare on their own, much less have enough money left over to drive a starving economy.
Just a little fact that some of you may not know....The unemployment rate for Veterans, the ones who have fought so hard and given up so much for this Nation is at a staggering high of 10.6%, what a shame... But even more shameful, and in this persons opinion criminal is the fact that Richard Burr Republican Senator actually voted against the Veterans Job Corps Bill, this bill would have enabled many veterans the chance to get training and other necessary opportunities that would allow them to ready themselves for life after the military.
What is patriotism.... it used to mean standing up for your Country and President, well not anymore. As the days progress I watch as the Republicans increase their criticism towards the President and his actions, but none could have ever disgusted me more then the events that have unfolded over the past few days. The Israeli Prime minister Netanyahu is demanding that we take a more aggressive stand on Iran and wants to attack them, the President is not ready for a full retaliation,and is using sanctions.
While I watched the Republican Convention I wondered just how they were planning to convince us to vote for Mitt Romney??
Mitt Romney claims to be patriotic enough to become the President of the United States, but not patriotic enough to keep his money here. When questioned about this Romney stated that he has not broken any laws by opening and keeping money in off-shore accounts in other countries.... Just because you can do something,does not mean you should Mitt...Patriotic??? hum
We as Democrats must call out the Republicans for their attacks on Women, African Americans,Latin Americans and the recipients of Medicare, Medicaid, Unemployment, Welfare, and Social Security. Time and time again they have shown disdain for all of our safety nets and the people whom use them. We must point out the callous nature of the the GOP.
Today the Supreme Court Ruled to uphold the Healthcare Bill by a vote of 5 to 4.... It is good to see that there are a few Republicans that can actually make a good choice!!!!
Under the G.W. Bush administration the Republicans considered it unpatriotic NOT to support the Government, but under the Obama Administration those very Republicans consider it unpatriotic TO support Government. It must be so very confusing to be a Republican these days!!
This ones for all of us who remember the REAL Ronald Reagan, and those who might need a little refresher course! this ones for YOUR viewing pleasure!!
REPUBLICAN SUPPORTERS NEVER LET YOU DOWN ON HOW RIDICULOUS THEY ARE, AND HOW THEY ACT!! WATCH THIS:
