Rational Intelligence Is On Our Side
I am still trying to figure out HOW and WHEN soundness of mind was laid to rest in America. I know a lot of foul incidents that heavily strained Americas sanity, occurred during the 8 long years of the Cheney/Bushs reign of 9/11 terror that we are still reeling from but I thought with their departure, we-the-people had emerged (from their fiasco of not caring what happened to America as long as it made billionaires, mufti-billionaires), a bit stronger and wiser. NO SUCH LUCK!
In the aftermath of all the chaos caused by the relentless disregard of our nation and its people by the Cheney/Bush mismanagement group, a grassroots movement evolved. They claimed they were angry. They claimed they were distressed. They claimed Government was causing all their pain therefore they should shrink it down to a size so small that it can drown in a bathtub. But all their claims were meaningless, what they really were upset about was the 2008 GOP loss to Barack Obama (a black man) that, they could not tolerate.
When the wealthy corporatist got wind of all this anger and hate they decided to capitalize and benefit from so much unbridled scorn, so the grassroots Tea Party movement was seized and became a tool for the 1% to regain some of the power they lost during the 2008 election. They shelled out millions to corral this populous discontent in order to get their sycophants elected. First they renamed their toadies, Tea Party leaders and the populous grassroots Tea Party joiners were swept off their feet, believing everything they were hearing as truth. Thus, the GOPs big win of the house and almost the senate plus the many gubernatorial races in 2010. (Republicans took 11 governorships from the Democrats -- Iowa, Kansas, Ohio, Oklahoma, Maine, Michigan, New Mexico, Pennsylvania, Tennessee, Wisconsin, and Wyoming). Once in, they threw off their sheeps clothing and donned their wolf outfits again.
Now with this government takeover of the house (and the newly planted state governors by the 1%), along with the Citizens United, Corporations are People, decision by the 5 Supreme Court Corporatist groupies, the 1% were all set to finalize their dreams of a world takeover. They threw everything in the pot which included, all the worn-out social issues that use to work like charms before the collapse of the economy. Religion, Gay Marriage Rights, Womens Reproductive Rights, Taxes, 9/11 (oops, they couldnt use that any longer because they milked it to death). You know all those issues that make the indoctrinated very, very mad and eager to vote against their own best interests.
So, I guess with my ranting on, Ive answered my own question of HOW and WHEN soundness of mind was laid to rest in America It came to pass, when the 1% so easily (too easily) took over the minds and rationale of those who live in a religious and prejudice world of darkness.
Please watch one of our own, who is the embodiment of Rational Intelligence (with a LARGE dash of wit and humor), Jon Stewart talk about THE INSANITY. thinkingblue
If there's one thing Jon
Stewart can't stand, it's public figures making unfair
comparisons to Hitler. Unfortunately, during his week off from
"The Daily Show" last week, he was presented with yet
another Nazi analogy courtesy of Fox News -- this time in
reference to President Obama's birth control policy.
The President's healthcare plan requiring contraception to be included in insurance coverage has started a "firestorm" among Christians (or, as Stewart pointed out, "just the old dudes who run it") MORE HERE
Perhaps, this is a good time to revisit Jon Stewart's Sarcastic Take On How, The GOP View The Poor... (Wit and Sarcasm beats out Ignorance and Hate.)
