Randomly Thought Thoughts

Paul Ryan is a top notch tea partier, nothing less. This past week he shamefully trotted out the coded racial language that Republicans have always used and that Tea Partiers work hard to hone. Understand that the Tea Party is the grandchild of the Dixiecrats of the 1940s and 1950s through the Southern Strategy of the 1960s and 1970s. Ryan is as in tune with America as Steve King is, only Ryan has a much better haircut. “In tune” to them means Looney Tune.

Never Forget
“There are forces within the Democratic Party who want us to sound like kinder, gentler Republicans.
I want a party that will STAND UP for Working Americans.”

Poll I Liked From Cheers and Jeers (DailyKos):
Which of these Koch brothers-related activities is most disgusting to you?

– Using astroturfing tactics to make the tea party seem like a grassroots movement
– Funding ALEC activities, including passage of corporation-coddling and ‘Stand Your Ground’ laws
– Their empire’s record on pollution
– Paying colleges to create curricula that need to follow a Koch-approved, Ayn Randian blueprint
– Bankrolling anti-Affordable Care Act ads that manipulate real people’s stories and spin them into flat-out lies
– Funneling cash through an elaborate web of shell organizations to hide the reach of their far-right ideological tentacles
– Colluding with GOP governors to break unions

If You Don’t Use It, You Lose It
“Compassion is a skill that we get better at with practice,” writes theologian Karen Armstrong. One could easily note that the Tea Party practices this virtue very little.

Mr. Free Market
Governor Chris Christie has ordered the sales of Teslas to stop in his state.  Seems the powers that be fear competition much more than they favor free market. Especially when they sell a fading technology.

Lest We Ever Forget
This Wednesday – MARCH 19 – we remember Bush’s invasion of Iraq.

Benghazi is no doubt much worse than the unprovoked attack that killed hundreds of thousands of Iraqis, thousands of Americans and cost trillions in treasure. Was it all just for oil in servitude to the oil companies? {sarcasm for the humor impaired}

Remember this guy? Here is his take on Iraq 8 years ago.

A Fond Farewell
Tony Benn died Friday. One of the great voices of the people from Britain.
