It all comes down to profits for those who have more to gain from war than peace. We have McCain in the Senate who never met a war he didn’t like. Why, because he can line his pockets with considerations.

Bad guys with guns are always on offense and can kill anyone at any time. Good guys with guns are necessarily on defense and rarely in the vicinity of bad guys with guns…and they could only act AFTER the bad guy has pulled out his gun and shot someone. So no, they don’t stop the bad guy from killing.

Not only has HP now refused to dance with the one who brought them to the party, they are jumping into Mark Zuckerberg’s Ferrari and waving back at their community with a champagne glass in hand as they speed away.

This man, Tom Steyer is a very wealthy man who will back Democrats against the Keystone XLPipeline. So who will benefit from the Keystone Pipeline? Who will be hurt? First, the rich oil corporations and the very wealthy will benefit. Second, the middle class, working poor, and poor will be hurt. Farmers, ranchers, homeowners, and small businesses will also be hurt.

Thought “The Death Panel” was a right wing hoax? Nope. The SCOTUS became a real death panel, allowing states to refuse expanding Medicaid to let the uninsured working poor die from medical neglect. The ongoing deaths of thousands of Americans will now be a dark legacy of The Roberts Court.

They combine all of their supermarket shopping needs for the week into one large list so they can save time and money to put towards taking away the 99%’s time and money.

Job Fair

The question to be asked of Republicans about the poor, aside from, “How can you be such complete assholes?!” is, “Really, there are well paying jobs out there just waiting for the poor to apply but the poor won’t because they’re way too comfy being poor? Name those specific jobs.”
