Werner...how long you been living for "free" in the valley?


I saw Werner working in The Valley summer before last. It was burning hot and we should have followed his advice to can our plans. Instead we got roasted and had our asses kicked.

I can only hope he was sabotaging the federal vehicle he was working on.

WOW! Talk about making a stupid distinction. Durrrrrrrrr.

It's a given that corporations have increased their political clout to truly scary levels. Citizens United was the icing on this toxic cake.

Who can tell us what President Obama has done to reduce corporate clout in America?

No brainer.... NOTHING.



The dude below is a perfect example of that under the table influence that the big corporations assuredly STILL enjoy from the White House.

Taxes? What taxes... we know Obama.




Oh my bad... they are a Union run Corporation and are for the "People".

Why do liberals hate black babies so much?


It's interesting because if you pay any attention to right wing media you realize very quickly how vapid posters like TGT and bookworm are. Basically everything they post is just a regurgitation of whatever memes are being hyped by the CPAC crowd at the moment. In this case it's the "liberals are the real racists/misogynists because they support reproductive rights and some of those zygotes would be black/female" meme. This desperate contortion to try to spin Republicans' abysmal record on race and gender would be laughable if it wasn't so offensive and it amazes me that they think it will actually be effective. Literally the only people who make this insane connection are conservatives who can't find enough Kool-aide to drink, not average Americans.

All anyone needs to do is look at the literally endless amount of incredibly racist, incredibly hateful things that regularly come out of the mouths of conservatives to know what is what.

Let's take this email for instance:




The guy commenting "That is hilarious. And so true" at the top? That's Governor Scott Walker's (ex) deputy chief of staff. He is only one of several Walker staffers who have been fired because of very public, very racist comments. The talking point that bookworm is parroting is all part of the "liberals are the real racists" defense that Republicans are scrambling to throw up because there is no actual track record of helping or representing minorities that they can point to and actually deploring and condemning racism would involve actually taking responsibility...

..and also maybe no longer buddying around with noted racist Ted Nugent.

bookworm going on record for continuing to spend unnecessary money on socialist government programs. It's almost as if the desire to cut "waste" is just a front. Who knew?

Who wants to bet that I could find a right wing blog somewhere with all the links that bookworm just posted in the same order?

Yes, Jesus Would Bake A Cake for a Gay Person

By: Erick Erickson (Diary) | February 21st, 2014 at 01:54 PM

Jesus Christ would absolutely bake a cake for a gay person. Heíd bake a cake for a straight person. Heíd bake a cake for a girl, a boy, a person who isnít sure what they are, a black person, a white person ó Jesus would bake that cake if it, in some way large or small, drew that person closer to Him.

And Christians should too.

Christians should show love and compassion to gays, straights, and everyone else. Christians should show Godís love in hopes of drawing people to a relationship with Christ. 95% of that may just be relationship building, but it should still be done.

If a Christian owns a bakery or a florist shop or a photography shop or a diner, a Christian should no more be allowed to deny service to a gay person than to a black person. It is against the tenets of 2000 years of orthodox Christian faith, no matter how poorly some Christians have practiced their faith over two millennia.

And honestly, I donít know that I know anyone who disagrees with any of this.

The disagreement comes on one issue only ó should a Christian provide goods and services to a gay wedding. Thatís it. Weíre not talking about serving a meal at a restaurant. Weíre not talking about baking a cake for a birthday party. Weíre talking about a wedding, which millions of Christians view as a sacrament of the faith and other, mostly Protestant Christians, view as a relationship ordained by God to reflect a holy relationship.

This slope is only slippery if you grease it with hypotheticals not in play.

There are Christians who have no problem providing goods and services for a gay marriage. Some of them are fine with gay marriage. Some of them think gay marriage is wrong, but they still have no problem providing goods and services.

Other Christians, including a significant number of Catholic and Protestant preachers, believe that a gay marriage is a sinful corruption of a relationship God himself ordained. Because they try to glorify God through their work, they believe they cannot participate in a wedding service. Yes, because they believe they are glorifying God in their work and view it as a ministry, they view providing goods and services as a way to advance, even in a small way, Godís kingdom.

Herein lies the dispute of the day. The latter group does not stand in the way of the former group providing cakes, flowers, and pictures for a gay wedding. Some of the former, however, believe the government should compel the latter group to violate their conscience. They only see the transaction through the customerís eyes as if the vendors are passive participants.

Thatís the problem.

We are not talking about race. We are not talking about restaurants. We are talking about a specific ceremony people of faith believe God himself created and ordained. Should the state force people to violate their conscience in that regard?

It is not staggering that there are aggrieved gay rights activists who think the state should be able to force people to recognize as normal that which most Christians view as sinful. What is staggering is the number of Christians who apparently think the State has the right to decide and enforce this issue.

You might think Jesus would bake a cake for a gay wedding. I think you are wrong because I donít Christ would collaborate in sin. But are you really going to tell the millions of Christians in the United States who think otherwise that not only are they wrong, but the state should be able to force your opinion of what Jesus would do on them? In your pride, you might think 2000 years of Christian orthodoxy and the majority of practicing Christians in the world today are wrong ó but donít think among people of practicing Christian faith you are in the majority.

I understand if you are not a believer and define yourself based on your sexual preference that you think the government should legitimize you by forcing others to treat you in a particular way. But it boggles my mind to think any Christian should want the government to force their view of Christianity on another believer.

If you think the government should be able to force Christians to provide goods and services to a gay wedding or risk losing their business, why not command a preacherís service? If a Christian baker cannot opt out, why should a preacher be able to opt out? And why not take from churches their tax exempt status if they fail to participate?

Christians should serve. But the government should not force them to.

A Conservative majority of 5 to 4 gave the rights of Humans to corporations..

No Democrat or Liberal went along with this, we have fought it since the late 1800s when the Conservatives gave power to the Railroads and Robber Barons.

What was the end result? economic depression, inequality and corruption.

Every liberal justice voted against it, Many Democratic Congressmen have proposed a New Constitutional amendment to make People People, and say that Only real Humans have the rights of Humans.
Republicans have said they would block it. They are making billions on maintaining the status quo.

Who put these Corporate shills on the Supreme Court???
Who put the Liberals that voted against it on the Court??

I'm sorry, you must be very misinformed to maintain the parties are the same.

It seems the only people that maintain this stance are Right Wingers, which make sense, that way they can Justify voting for more Republicans that Screw up this country, because in their feeble intelligence, they are all the same. And they can't vote for Dems, because they have succumbed to the BS propaganda spewed out by the right wing media. It's a catch 22 that they can only solve by just deluding themselves.

The Reality of the situation proves them wrong.

"You might think Jesus would bake a cake for a gay wedding. I think you are wrong because I donít Christ would collaborate in sin."...


First off I don't believe in Santa Claus or Hokus Pokus...

But if Jesus WOULDN'T bake someone a cake because they are GAY (A supposed SIN)...

then he should take a better look at his HUSSY of a Mother because immaculate conception DOESN'T exist so it looks like she was out getting BONED for the fun of it...

I think THAT is a SIN, too!!!...
