An art critic on Bush's paintings:


Perhaps Solomon summed it up best when she concluded, "I think a lot of us wish he had become a painter as opposed to a president. We all could have been saved a lot of trouble."

'Democrats can’t just talk about inequality. They have to address the economic and political underpinnings of insecurity and injustice. They have to challenge the assumptions of those who argue for the failed strategies of the past.

That’s what [Elizabeth] Warren did the other night in Minneapolis when she said to the DFL faithful, “So let’s take a look at what we’re up against.”

“Take a look at Paul Ryan, the former vice presidential candidate for the Republicans,” she said. “Now let’s just look at the facts. Congressman Ryan attacked unemployment insurance, saying it is, and I’m quoting here, ‘a hammock, which lulls able-bodied people into lives of complacency and dependency.’ I am really serious: I want you to think about that. If our neighbors and friends who are laid off when a company moves overseas, or the recession shuts them down, Paul Ryan thinks that a little help—to try to help keep the mortgage paid and to put food on the table—will cause them to kick back and live large, with no plans to work again.”

Piecing together her argument, going not for applause lines but for a point, she continued. “While Al Franken and Amy Klobuchar and I were working with other Democrats to extend unemployment benefits, Congressman Ryan actually doubled down, saying, and I am going to quote him again, ‘We have got this tailspin of culture, in our inner cities in particular, of men not working and just generations of men not even thinking about working or learning to value the culture of work, so there is a real culture problem here that has to be dealt with.’”

Then she pounced:

Paul Ryan looks around, sees three unemployed workers for every job opening in American, and blames people who can’t find a job.

In 2008 this economy crashed, wiping out millions of jobs. Paul Ryan says don’t blame Wall Street: the guys who made billions of dollars cheating American families. Don’t blame decades of deregulation that took the cops off the beat while the big banks looted the American economy. Don’t blame the Republican Secretary of the Treasury, and the Republican president who set in motion a no-strings-attached bailout for the biggest banks—Nope. Paul Ryan says keep the monies flowing to the powerful corporations, keep their huge tax breaks, keep the special deals for the too-big-to-fail banks and put the blame on hardworking, play-to-the-rules Americans who lost their jobs.

Let me tell you: That may be Paul Ryan’s vision of how America works, but that is not our vision of this great country.

Speaking of Paul Ryan, did you know that he has a brother? That this brother is a Canadian?

here's the proof:





He is right now busily re-writing the elections act for the sole purpose of removing access to the vote for a demographic that historically dosn't vote for azsholes and psychopaths.

Guess where he got that idea?

hint: notice he quotes Mark Steyn, as some sort of economic expert....




Answer: His american brother!

or Atlas Shrugged, same thing.

Seeing as you are a self proclaimed book worm Hooky, I reccommend this one to see what stealth theocracy has wrought in Canada:


Onward, Christian nationalists
REVIEWED BY MOLLY WORTHEN
Special to The Globe and Mail
Published Friday, May. 14 2010, 12:51 PM EDT

Many Canadians watching the pastor-politicians and "culture wars" south of the border think, with a sigh of relief: It could never happen here. Marci McDonald is out to prove them wrong.

The Armageddon Factor is an account of Canada's homegrown "Christian nationalism," meant to startle secular citizens into vigilance. She argues that Stephen Harper has opened the way for conservative evangelicals to play an unprecedented role in Ottawa, but these "Christian nationalists" are not content with his dutiful pronouncements of "God bless Canada."

Driven by a theocratic vision of government and an apocalyptic mania, they will, she is certain, stop at nothing short of a "Christian nation [in which]non-believers … have no place, and those in violation of biblical law, notably homosexuals and adulterers, would merit severe punishment and the sort of shunning that once characterized a society where suspected witches were burned."

Through years of reporting at Maclean's and U.S. News & World Report, McDonald has demonstrated shrewd political observation, and she is at her best in narrating the Prime Minister's 10-year political tightrope. After Stockwell Day's credibility evaporated in 2000 amid ridicule of his belief in creationism, Harper emerged "as the determined voice of secularism." Yet he soon began building a coalition that would yoke libertarians together with evangelicals and wrest Catholics and conservative "ethnic Canadians" from Liberal ranks. Harper handed key appointments to evangelicals and manipulated the judiciary advisory panels to "impose a long-term ideological stamp on at least a thousand federal appointments to the bench."

Before you blow it off as crazyass tin foil hat speculation, note that it was written in 2010, and at this point in time it has been proven largely true.

Just so you know, you Americans are not the only psychopaths on this continent....

Did you read my link Hook? Of course not, but you should have. Here is a teaser:

Her account relies heavily on a handful of books by American journalists who over-simplified evangelical thought

Coles notes: The reviewer endeavors to be "fair and balanced", minimizing the batshit crazy in order to appear reasonable.

She forgot to mention the significant distinction though, which might go like this....

"Her account relies heavily on a handful of books by American journalists who over-simplified evangelical thought..... thereby accurately portraying a significant proportion of evangelicals who possess over - simplified thought."


Check it out man. Its quite fair and balanced, but never the less in the end has to aknowledge the general truth of what Marci MacDonald points out.

Gave a big speech yesterday, but I guess it doesn't apply to him.

While female White House staffers earn about 88 cents for every dollar men in the White House make, women in the District earn about 95 cents for every dollar a men make, according to the most recent data from the Bureau of Labor Statistics.

That’s a 12-cent pay gap at the White House compared to a five-cent pay gap in the District of Columbia.

The metric used to derive both pay gaps is the same the government has used to arrive at the 77-cent national average.

Nevertheless, White House press secretary Jay Carney spent this week arguing that there is no pay discrimination at the White House.

"(Reuters) - Foreign profits held overseas by U.S. corporations to avoid taxes at home nearly doubled from 2008 to 2013 to top $2.1 trillion, said a private research firm's report, prompting a call for reform by the Senate's top tax law writer."
