A Republican World – ‘Paul Ryan Quivers as Bernie Sanders Outs the Dirty Secret Behind His Poverty Propaganda’

poor1

paul ryan and the poor2

‘Sen. Sanders said’ :

“You have folks out there now who have virtually no income coming in. They have families. They have kids. How are they going to eat? We have veterans out there trying to get into the food stamp program”.

“To me, what you’re looking at is an ugly kind of class warfare where the people on top want more and more and more, and they’re pushing down in an incredibly terrible way the most vulnerable people in our country.”

“These are the same people who want to eliminate the estate tax, which applies to only the top three tenths of one percent of all Americans, which is the richest of the rich, then they are going after kids”.

“The politics of this, Al, is what they are trying to do is deflect attention away from income and wealth inequality”.

“Attention away from the fact that the rich are doing extraordinarily well”,

  • “And tell their supporters that the real problem in America is that children are getting too much help from the federal government, and that’s the kind of mentality that we have got to fight back against.”

The Republican War On Women – ‘Kansas May Force Doctors To Report Women’s Miscarriages To The State Health Department’

war on women2

Had enough yet?

enough

‘A bill advancing in Kansas would mandate reporting for miscarriages at any stage in pregnancy, the first step along the path to criminalizing pregnant women’s bodies. Under an amendment attached to HB 2613 — which was originally intended to update the state’s procedure for issuing birth certificates for stillborn babies — doctors would be required to report all of their patients’ miscarriages to the state health department’.

  • Why?

‘HB 2613 initially sought to provide an alternative to the state’s current stillbirth certificate, which some parents believe over-emphasizes their child’s death in an emotionally painful way’.

‘Sen. Mary Pilcher-Cook (R), one of the most ardent abortion opponents in Kansas, added the miscarriage reporting requirement last week’.

The Republican War On Women – ‘Women Strongly Oppose Hobby Lobby’s Birth Control Case: Poll’

womens health

war on women3

Birth control and women’s health.

Minimum wage.

Social Safety nets.

And the Republican obstruction against these issues.

THAT’S what Democrats run on.

Republicans FOR business enacting the ‘conscience clause’ and AGAINST people needing health care.

Republicans FOR cutting social safety net programs and FOR cutting taxes to the wealthy and corporations.

Republicans AGAINST raising the minimum wage because ‘it will hurt business’.

What About The People?
__________________________

‘The poll, commissioned by Planned Parenthood, the American Civil Liberties Union and the National Women’s Law Center, surveyed women between the ages of 18 and 55 ahead of the Supreme Court case Sebelius v. Hobby Lobby’.

‘84% of women agreed with the statement that the decision to use birth control “should be a woman’s personal decision, and her boss should not be able to interfere with it.”

‘But 68 percent of the female voters who would be affected by the Supreme Court’s decision disagree with Hobby Lobby’.

81% of women polled said businesses should not be able to refuse service to gays and lesbians, and the same number said pharmacies should not be allowed to refuse to fill prescriptions for birth control on religious grounds’.

‘Women of all demographics overwhelmingly support the provision of the Affordable Care Act requiring employers to cover contraception and other preventive health services for women’,

‘Including 92 percent of Democrats’,

’83 percent of independents’,

’63 percent of Republicans’

‘And 79 percent of Catholics’.

Why America Is Failing – ‘Report: $1 billion in taxpayer money went to anti-science private schools last year’

creationism

While the rest of the World teaches it’s children actual science, here in the US, Christians demand we teach Creationism.

‘Taxpayers are helping to pay for courses and textbooks that encourage students to mistrust science, mathematics, and the secular world itself – and those efforts seem likely to expand into other states’.

‘Not all religious schools teach creationism, but science education activists have identified 300 such schools that also receive public subsidies’.

‘Currently, taxpayers in 14 states funnel nearly $1 billion in private school tuition through voucher programs, paying those schools to teach children that Adam and Eve lived alongside dinosaurs less than 10,000 years ago in the Garden of Eden’.

‘Textbooks popular in Christian schools describe evolution as “a wicked and vain philosophy,” while students practice vocabulary lessons that claim “many scientists today are creationists.”

“Our understanding is not complete until we filter it through God’s Word,” one school assures parents’.

‘After colliding with a reef, the tanker seeped thick, toxic sludge into the water, where waves and currents globbed it over 1,300 miles of shoreline’.

A Repeublican World – The ‘FOX News “We Report What We Want You To Know And THEN You Decide” Edition – ‘FOX blocks Quinn “Mr. Burns” ad’

fox news1

‘Democratic Gov. Pat Quinn wasted little time likening his Republican rival Bruce Rauner to one of pop culture’s most infamous rich guys: C. Montgomery Burns of “The Simpsons.”

‘The Quinn campaign put a new web ad up making the unflattering comparison as the governor continues a class warfare theme against his general election foe’.

‘Quinn argues Rauner’s wealth leaves him out of touch with everyday people’.

‘The ad features snippets of Burns, the evil owner of Springfield’s nuclear power plant in the long-running animated series’.

“Do you want someone like Mr. Burns representing you in Springfield?” the narrator asks.

  • ‘The ad quickly was blocked on YouTube this afternoon with a message that reads “This video contains content from FOX, who has blocked it on copyright grounds.”

A Republican World – The ‘And It Only Cost New Jersey Taxpayers 1 MILLION DOLLARS!’ Edition – ‘Chris Christie Clears Chris Christie Of Any Wrongdoing In Bridgegate Scandal’

chris christie cleared

‘Per a report in The New York Times on Monday, a legal team hired directly by Chris Christie’s office performed a review of the George Washington Bridge scandal and found the New Jersey Governor completely innocent of any wrongdoing’.

‘The review of the scandal was conducted by Randy M. Mastro, who just so happened to serve as New York City’s deputy mayor under Rudy Giuliani’.

‘Giuliani has been one of the embattled Christie’s biggest supporters and cheerleaders throughout the fallout of his many controversies these past few months’.

‘Mastro’s law firm was paid $1 million in legal fees to conduct the audit. While they pointed out that they had unlimited access to files and phones records, and that they were able to conduct at least 70 interviews with various people in the Governor’s office and administration’.

  • ‘BUT…..they did not speak with either Bridget Kelly’,
  • ‘Or David Wildstein, the two most central figures in this scandal’.
  • ‘Another person who was not interviewed was Christie’s former aide and campaign manager, Bill Stephen’.
