Dog wars

I am not sure why I am writing about the latest GOP trip to Crazy Town. The POTUS is president for all citizens. Who has given to the GOP the right to ridicule what others eat. Are they really blind to the fact America is very much a multicultural society?

The implied racism in regards to what the President may have eaten as a child will not serve the GOP well. Americans are tired of hate and superiority complex.

Why I love blogging. 4/19/2012

I love blogging for I am free to be me. My being me means I am free to ask anyone I desire via my blog to support any cause I desire. My cause is to stop Tea Party exploitation of Americans and our natural resources. The best way to stop Tea Party from giving our rights to corporations is to elect strong Democratic leaders to office.

Please support: My name is Ron Barber, and I’m the Democrat running in the special election in the district that my friend Gabby Giffords represented in Arizona.

The next 48 hours are critical -- Tea Party Republican Jesse Kelly was nominated by Republicans on Tuesday to run against me in the special election.

Kelly is the same Tea Party candidate who came so close to defeating Gabby in 2010. He’s back with his plans to destroy Social Security and end Medicare. He'd even abolish the minimum wage.

The special election is just weeks away and we will need as much grassroots support as possible to defeat Jesse Kelly. Grassroots support was key to Gab…

As citizens of the United States we must be more aware of the media. We must learn to know the difference between a plant and actual reporting. The story below is a plant. After reading tell me if you know which camp planted the story. http://news.yahoo.com/romney%E2%80%99s-budget-plan-shouldn%E2%80%99t-be-a-secret-saved-for-wealthy-donors.html;_ylt=AibZBe2DylMTHw.EkiR6Zr7h7r5_;_ylu=X3oDMTFuZmFxOWU4BG1pdANIQ01PTCBvbiBBcnRpY2xlBHBrZwNpZC0yMjIzNTg1BHBvcwMzBHNlYwNoY20EdmVyAzk-;_ylg=X3oDMTM1MWFzNmNjBGludGwDdXMEbGFuZwNlbi11cwRwc3RhaWQDYjAwNDc2MzMtZDEyOS0zNTcxLWI1MDctNzk4NTRjOWE2NTFjBHBzdGNhdAM5MTF0ZXN0fGJsb2cEcHQDc3RvcnlwYWdlBHRlc3QD;_ylv=3 You may have better luck with a Google search on , Romney’s budget plan shouldn’t be a secret saved for wealthy donors. Either way who planted this story. It is important that we become informed voters as well as discerning voters.

A call to action : Student Loans

Below is an email from Robert Applebaum, a MoveOn member who created a petition at SignOn.org that is getting a lot of attention and may be of interest to people in your area. If you have concerns or feedback about this petition, click here.

Dear MoveOn member,

Since 1999, average student loan debt has increased by a shameful 511%. In 2010, total outstanding student loan debt exceeded total outstanding credit card debt in America for the first time ever. In 2012, total outstanding student loan debt is expected to exceed $1 trillion.

In response to this crisis, U.S. Representative Hansen Clarke of Michigan has just introduced H.R. 4170, the Student Loan Forgiveness Act of 2012, which would extend a helping hand to those struggling under massive amounts of student loan debt.

That's why I created a petition to Rep. John Kline, Chairman of the House Education and the Workplace Committee; the United States House of Representatives and Senate; and President Barack Obama on SignOn.org, …

Cut the crap

It is crazy how progressives are spinning in the spin cycle of the GOP wash of Hilary Rosen's comments about Ann Romney's lack of W-2 history. It is easy to see why the Dems did nothing with their 2006 - 2010 majority in Congress. The entire lot of Progressives need to grow a pair.

When will Progressives stop running from truths? The truth is if Mitt is depending on his wife to know what is important to American women he may miss a few things. Ann Romney is a stay at home mother. She is not aware of making a choice between medicine for child or gas money to get to work. She is not aware of missing school events because she can not afford to miss an hour of W-2. She is not aware of eating fast food because cooking after working long hours is not in the cards.

I am not knocking stay at home mothers. I am pointing out the fact that in America most families have two paychecks and when there is one paycheck in a household it is usually co Ming from a woman. Ann Romney …

Question about GOP

I have moved into being more in public life. It is a local deal but still I must be more circumspect in my blogs. Keeping propriety in mind I shall refrain from asking the rhetorical question, " Is the GOP on crack?". I shall instead state I believe the GOP is out of touch with reality.

If the GOP really thinks we will forget the cliff diving into the cesspool of far right ideology, then out of touch is the kindest way to wonder aloud about the logic. The hate and race baiting during the GOP primaries has created alarms within minorities. Please include White women as being alarmed.

Today's GOP appears to be fighting to keep wages low, to keep women out of the workplace, and to keep public funds going to private corporations. When the GOP under Glenn Beck vowed to take our nation back I had no idea they wanted pre-revolutionary America. Tea anyone?

It is imperative that we as Americans help the GOP join us in our reality. We can help GOP by remembering what is imp…

Can You Hear Me?

I am amazed, maybe not, at the GOP's males refusal to acknowledge the war on women. I have been asking for several months what year is it? I know I can not be alone in thinking the GOO has taken this nation back to 1950's America.

It is time to bring the GOP into the present with the rest of America. The women in the GOP see the war on women.

Personal call to action

I am posting this blog to assist with my being given credentials to be part of the media pool at the DNC. My goal for attending the DNC is to highlight the fact there are liberals/progressives in Mississippi. I wish for other in the closet liberals/progressives to come out and feel the sunshine. DZV5WFPEA2ER Mississippians must take a stand against the current GOP rhetoric that is about to undermine the social saftey nets used by many in Mississippi. Help me to spread the word. It is time to provide accurate information to Mississippians. It is time for us to stop voting against our better interests.

Paranoid females

I am not one given to hysteria or for being paranoid. When I say there is a war on women in America, there is a war. I find it very funny the GOP is attempting to disput the "War on Women" by saying there is no such animal. The cleanup from birth control to the Masters is not going well for the GOP. At this point they may as well just say, " Ya'll women go home and stop being paranoid. Giving into hysteria over a pretend war on caterpillars will only upset you. Now ya'll just go on back home. Cook your men folks a little something for dinner." The GOP's continued denial of a war on women has been highlighted by yet another round of fire. Please check out the link below. As always, I give my opinion but the links I post have facts. We must speak out now or risk having our country "taken back". http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2012/04/06/scott-walker-wisconsin-equal-pay-law_n_1407329.html?1333728572 Please read.

Basta Ya Estados Unidos

When we all get to heaven. Yada Yada . I stop sometimes to wonder just who the Bible thumping GOP think will be in heaven. Judging from the party's behavior the last 14 years one would think only White heterosexual gun carrying males will be in heaven. At some point the GOP needs to understand the song clearly states when we "all" get to heaven. These wars on women and minorities by the GOP are not helping their bid to win; anything.

This current war on women and the attempt to dismiss the war is not working. We women and all born of woman must send a message to stop this war on women. Basta.

President Obama's campaign's response: War on Caterpillar” Comments Show Republicans Continued Disregard for Women’s Health

CHICAGO, IL – Obama for America Deputy Campaign Manager Stephanie Cutter released the following statement in response to Reince Priebus’ comments today dismissing uproar over Republican efforts to rollback women’s health care to a manufactured…

Pure BS

I wrote this long hand while my phone charged. I was watching primary returns on MSNBC.

My phone is charging, however; I could not wait to write my thoughts about GOP campaign rhetoric, bullshit. I could not believe the stuff I heard during the primary returns tonight.

In spite of the earthquake that shook our nation's capitol last year, Santourm is still pushing fracking. Santorum has beaten a war drum for war with Iran while surrounded by his military aged children. What nerve?
However Ryan had more nerve. Paul Ryan claimed President Obama could not run on his record as president. I say President Obama could and should run on his term as president. The President will be able to highlight why it is important to elect Democrats with a spine, the constants obstruction by the GOP for any policy to benefit American people, and mostly how the GOP refused to be part of the solution. The President will be able to highlight just how far the GOP had to go in attempts to make his …
