Just Another Bunch of Spineless Democrats

I want to start by apologizing to you, the reader, for my lack of vision. I fell for it and in the way to the polls I asked you to come with me. I guess when I heard then candidate Obama say at the convention that one word "Enough!", I actually believed him. But after afghanistan, health care, and his timid way around the environment, I have come to a realization. No matter how good a speech is, if you are a Democrat and a politician you are spineless. No way around it. There is no longer a liberal party, just an ultra conservative and a bunch of center/right cowards.

Teddy Kennedy is rolling in his grave. You know what Mr. President? In your misguided attemt at making Joe Lieberman happy you lost a lot of us. Joe Lieberman who did not support you, has your ear a lot more than us, the people who volunteered, who knocked on doors and donated money. Us who believed you would be an exceptional president are now feeling foolish. Your white house is tough on Gov Dean, but would not say an unkind word about Ben Nelson or Joe Lieberman. You fooled us. You gave us hope and then showed us that there is no hope. This country was bought and sold a long time ago.

Catholic Church, don't let the door hit you on the way out

The Catholic Church in DC decided to flex its muscle. They are telling the city council that they will not be able to honor their contracts if DC passes the same sex marriage bill. I say good riddance. Just do what you do when one of your priests molests a boy. Move around, no one will miss ya.

While you are at it, why not sell the real estate you have in the district, maybe use that to feed people in third world countries. Come on Catholics, do what you preach and live humble, like Jesus. The carpenter would have. I am guessing you won't because you are all talk and no real result. Do they understand that they are saying "if we can't discriminate against gay people, then we won't feed the hungry in the district. We won't help put a roof over homeless people's heads, we hate gays that much"?

What would happen if you were planning something and someone else came along and said "my imaginary friend says not to go to that place". Would you take him seriously? No, you would say "shut up crazy." Well Catholic church... shut up crazy.

Rest in Peace Teddy

Ted Kennedy, "The Lion of the Senate". We thank you for all that you did and we will miss you greatly. That is not my humble opinion. That is a fact.

Opinion on Health Care and Townhall Disruptions by Jaime Tejada

If you have been following the developments about health care reform, you may have noticed that groups of people have been disrupting town hall meetings. These groups have been mobilized by the extreme right. Their objective is not to have people voice their opinion. Their objective is to prevent others from having a conversation about the much needed reform. So far, the right is winning the argument simply because the corporate media is both racist and corrupt. The town hall meetings are packed with angry white people who exhibit the most blatant selfish feelings. They claim to be there because they want to rescue America from socialism. As one woman put it, she does not want America to become a socialist country like Russia (Russia is now the prime example of predatory capitalism.) Their ignorance is unbelievable. Their ignorance is precisely the source of their anger and open racism. Recent polls reveal that 70% of white people in the South believe President Obama was not born in the US. They can not stand the fact that the country is changing. They see America's new face and become outraged. They just can not process that America elected and African American President, that there is a Liberal woman as Secretary of State, and a Latina as a Supreme Court Justice. All this seems to be too much for their reactionary minds to accept. Therefore, they are determined to see the "black President" fail. They scream they want their country back. The question is "back from what?" The answer is not from socialism. The answer is they want their country back from the "Black President." There is one more important point that needs to be considered. So far the town hall meeting protesters have been white. They show up in groups of 40 or 50 and disrupt the meetings. The media has of course portrayed them as patriotic citizens exercising their first amendment rights. What would happen if 40 or 50 Black or Latino men showed up to disrupt a town hall meeting. You know the answer well!
