The Republican Lies – The Washington State’s US Representative Cathy McMorris Rodgers Edition – ‘Congresswoman Says She Supports Equal Pay Laws, Voted Against Them Four Times’

gop lies

 

mcmorris rodgers

Ahhhhh. My favorite and my actual US Representative.

Lying?

Oh for shame Cathy, for shame.

‘But McMorris Rodgers actually voted against laws meant to address the pay disparity between men and women four times’.

‘She voted against the Lilly Ledbetter Fair Pay Act twice’,
which lengthened the time for victims of pay discrimination to file a complaint’.

‘She also voted twice against the Paycheck Fairness Act, a measure aimed at closing the gender wage gap by ending the practice of salary secrecy, thus giving women and others a better chance of rooting out discrimination, narrowing the guidelines for what pay disparities are justified, and strengthening penalties for discrimination as a way to deter it, among other things’.

‘Republicans may say they support equal pay, but they voted unanimously against the Paycheck Fairness Act in the Senate 2010 and just 10 voted for it in the House’.

‘Senate Republicans blocked it again in 2012 with a filibuster.

‘On CNN Wednesday, Rep. Cathy McMorris Rodgers (R-WA) told host Wolf Blitzer that she supports equal pay for women despite voting against a measure that would help women achieve that goal’.

‘In response to a question from Blitzer about President Obama’s call for equal pay in his State of the Union Address on Tuesday and whether she is “with the President when he says that there should be laws mandating equal pay for equal work for women,” McMorris Rodgers, who gave the official Republican response, replied’:

“Yes. Yes. Absolutely. Republicans and I support equal pay for equal work. My message last night was one about empowering everyone in this country, no matter what your background, no matter where you live, what corner of the country, no matter what your experiences are. We want you to have the opportunity for a better life”.

A Republican vision for America – The ‘If You Do Not Work, You Shall Not Eat’ Edition – Lunches seized from kids in debt at Salt Lake City elementary’

uintah elem school

Please feel free to call the school and thank them for following the rules!!

Uintah Elementary School
1571 East 1300 South, Salt Lake City, Utah 84105
Phone (801)584-2940 – Fax (801)584-2944

See it’s the kids fault that their lunch accounts are empty. So what the school district did was we give the kids lunches, then we can see who owes and then we take the food away from the kids.

‘The workers then took those lunches from the students and threw them away, he said, because once food is served to one student it can’t be served to another’.

‘Up to 40 kids at Uintah Elementary in Salt Lake City picked up their lunches Tuesday, then watched as the meals were taken and thrown away because of outstanding balances on their accounts — a move that shocked and angered parents’.

‘Jason Olsen, a Salt Lake City District spokesman, said the district’s child-nutrition department became aware that Uintah had a large number of students who owed money for lunches’.

‘As a result, the child-nutrition manager visited the school and decided to withhold lunches to deal with the issue, he said’.

‘But cafeteria workers weren’t able to see which children owed money until they had already received lunches, Olsen explained’.

“It was pretty traumatic and humiliating,” said Erica Lukes, whose 11-year-old daughter had her cafeteria lunch taken from her as she stood in line Tuesday at Uintah Elementary School, 1571 E. 1300 South’.

‘Lukes said as far as she knew, she was all paid up. “I think it’s despicable,” she said. “These are young children that shouldn’t be punished or humiliated for something the parents obviously need to clear up.”

‘Jason Olsen, a Salt Lake City District spokesman, said the district’s child-nutrition department became aware that Uintah had a large number of students who owed money for lunches’.

‘As a result, the child-nutrition manager visited the school and decided to withhold lunches to deal with the issue, he said’.

teabagger Alert!! – ‘Tea Party Terrorists Plead Guilty To Building Anti-Muslim Death Ray’

anti muslim death ray

‘Two Tea Party members in upstate New York entered a guilty plea to federal terrorism related charges, on Jan. 27. The (Albany, NY) Times Union reports the two men, Eric Feight and Scott Crawford, were caught planning to build an x-ray weapon of mass destruction, in order to wipe out Muslim-Americans, whom they referred to as the “enemies of Israel.”

‘Crawford and Feight built a prototype of the remote control device that would have activated their ‘death ray’. The FBI described the weapon as’ :

“a radiation emitting device that could be placed in the back of a van to covertly emit ionizing radiation strong enough to bring about radiation sickness or death against Crawford’s enemies.”

‘The two had also chosen an area Mosque as the first target at which to aim their weapon of mass destruction’.

The Rock-Paper-Scissors of Republican 2016 Presidential Hopefuls – ‘Poll: Huckabee Is Now The GOP’s Top Choice For 2016 After Libido Remark’

obstruction

If I had to pick right now, it would be Rand Paul and he picks Martinez of New Mexico as his VP.

rock paper12

rock paper

A month and a half ago , Chris Christie was the ‘Rock’.
He ‘slapped’ teabaggers for  hiring a Muslim.
He actually thanked President Obama for coming to New Jersey after the Sandy Hurricane.
And another ‘slap’ to the face of teabaggers, his ‘take down’ of Rand ‘Cut & Paste’ Paul for the Senators comments on New Jersey being a welfare State when the opposite is actually the fact.
Now even, as I suspect, Christie didn’t directly tell or even suggest the closure, just not knowing and the mounting influence peddling has made Chris Christie finished in Republican Presidential politics.
He would have struggled badly in the South and Central State primaries anyway.

rock paper1

Now with Mike ‘The Bible Is The Only Book You Need’ Huckabee’s comments on women’s libidos, he has risen to the top in Republican polling.
Question – Is 2016 already turning into the ‘flavor of the Month for Republicans?
Remember in 2011 while Mitt ‘I Can Lie Faster Then You Can Fact Check’ Romney wallowed in the polls at 24%, every month we had a ‘new’ leader. Palin, Bachmann, Perry, Trump, Cain, Gingrich.
So is Mikey an actual ‘leader’ or is it a case of he just tossed the ‘base’ – teabaggers – enough red meat and so ‘Mikey Will Do It’ is the latest craze?
The good news for Mikey is that with Christie out, there is anyone sane to take his place.
And Mike “The Bible Is The Only Book You Need’ Huckabee has spent the last 4 years honing the Aw Shucks, kinder, gentler GOP’er.
Huckabee would have few problems in any region in the primaries.

rock paper2

Then you have Rand ‘Cut & Paste’ Paul. Now this does not bother the Republican teabagger base. # 1 they don’t know what  plagiarism is and # 2, it’s just a liberal media lie anyway.
(**On a side note. If Rand Paul was to pick Paul Ryan to be his running mate, the bumper stickers would read ‘Paul/Ryan 2016’. They could just use their first names ‘Rand/Paul 2016′.
An omen?)
Rand Paul’ problem, well his biggest problem, is that he’s great and sound bites but falls flat on his face when questioned.
Now we already know the press won’t question him.
So will enough questions arise via debates to knock him out of the top billing?
His other major problem is he needs someone crazy standing on the same stage so that it makes him look normal.
Put Paul the Rand one next to Huckabee and Rand looks looney tunes. But stand him next to Ted Cruz and you’ll beg Rand to save us from Crazy Cruz.
So if there is no Christie or Huckabee opposition, then Rand can and will have little problem is the primaries.

rock paper3

Ted ‘I Didn’t Shut Down The Government’ Cruz.
Yes you did and aside form the teabagger base, no one will vote for you.

rock paper4

Scott ‘Hold On While I Take A 10 Minute Phone Call From A Fake Koch Brother During A Financial Crisis In My State’ Walker.
Shine a spot light on Scott Walker and it will make Chris Christie look like a boy scout. On the State level he’s fine but Nationally?
No.

rock paper5

Paul Ryan. Aynn Rand. Didn’t we just do the Ryan Rand thing?
Paul Ryan is a liar. He lies about his personal life and he’s lying about his various budgets.
Again he will excite the teabagger base but once you start questioning him, it all falls apart.
But he would sail through the primaries.

So we have Christie, Huckabee, Rand Paul, Ted Cruz, Scott Walker and Paul Ryan.

there will be a few others jumping in when they see the field.

rock paper6

Jeb Bush?
No real signs of him building a run. The ‘Bush’ machine is more or less useless as it hasn’t added any ‘new’ blood and is polar opposite of the teabaggers.

rock paper7

Newt? Yeah no.

rock paper8

Palin? Not enough money in it for her. Not enough intelligence in it for the rest of us.

rock paper9

Rick Santorum? Huckabee cancels him out.

rock paper10

rock paper11

Ben Carson? Allen West?
Rand Paul needs these people to run.

rubio

Wait. I didn’t mention Marco Rubio.
You’re right. I didn’t.
He is the little kid in Republican politics.

So unless someone in the Republican circles decides to go National, Hillary can pretty much just stand and deliver speeches on actual legislation while the crazies that the Republicans have turned their party over to yell, scream and froth at the mouth but offer no solutions.

Two years of hate, fear and loathing as policies form the Republicans.

A Libertarian vision for America – ‘This CEO Wants To Pay ‘Mentally Retarded’ People $2 Per Hour’

peter schiff

http://www.thedailyshow.com/watch/tue-january-28-2014/wage-against-the-machine

‘Peter Schiff, who is CEO of Euro Pacific Capital, and who also hosts a radio show where he shares his libertarian ideas on finance and the economy, has a history of attacking those who support raising the minimum wage’.

‘He starts out with the time honored conservative argument that raising the minimum wage will “destroy jobs.”

‘Then it gets bizarre’.

“Why have one job for $15 an hour, when you could have two jobs, for $7.50 an hour?” Schiff asks her “Would you rather do that, or pay twice as much for your burger?”

‘That is a huge theme with opponents of a minimum wage hike’.

‘They want to plant the idea in everyone’s head that doubling the minimum wage will result in doubling of prices of popular products’.

  • ‘That claim is completely false’.

‘Take McDonalds. In Australia, where the minimum wage is $17.05, or almost $15 in U.S. currency, a Big Mac costs $4.94. That’s about $4.32 in American dollars. In the U.S., a Big Mac costs $4.20’.

‘Schiff offers the classic libertarian idea of a “fair” minimum wage’.

“If we eliminate the minimum wage law, then individuals would be free to accept jobs at whatever pay they are able to get”.

‘Schiff saves the most incredible comment for last’.

‘Bee asks him to describe a person whose work would be worth $2.00 an hour’.

‘Schiff says “You know somebody who might be?” He then fumbles around looking for a description, before asking Bee “What’s the politically correct word for ‘mentally retarded?’”

A Libertarian vision for America – The Republican ‘War On Women’ -The Rand Paul Edition – ‘Senator Floats Idea To Penalize Low-Income Women Who Have Children’

 

rand paul

Tell me again Rand about this ‘small government’ that you say stays ‘out of people’s lives’.

‘At a luncheon for the Chamber of Commerce in Lexington, KY, Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) floated the idea of capping government benefits for women who have children out of wedlock, the Lexington Herald-Leader reports’.

‘While he said that preventing unplanned pregnancies should be in the hands of communities and families, he added’,

“Maybe we have to say ‘enough’s enough, you shouldn’t be having kids after a certain amount.”
