We can scream about republican recalcitrance, but when we had power (albeit brief), we spent it developing policies that favored the 1% and submarined any efforts to punish those who robbed the bottom 99% percent of their lifesavings. We created the stimulus which was trickle-down lite.

Unfortunately, Republicans often ONLY focus on what’s happening at their own breakfast table, and seem to be incapable to concentrate on any kind of injustice, as soon as it’s their NEIGHBOR, rather than a family member, who’s suffering from it.

“Me know women get less pay for same job but speaking for all women as man, what feel worse to women is everyone knowing it. So me decree, on behalf of women, no one talk about it anymore.” Problem solved!

war on women

“For years we’ve courted the public on passing anti-abortion laws and they spurned us. We’ve grown so frustrated that the way we felt on these issues wasn’t being returned, we had to do something about it or we’d burst so we just grabbed the best looking bills we could find and thrust our legislation into them.”

The thing is why, as a member nation of the United Nations, would anyone in this country think it ok to withhold certain human rights from certain people? And why would Republicans in Congress hold up re-authorization of a bill for almost two years for the reasons stated above?

Thinking the unthinkable. As horrible as it is to think of this, the wise are doing just that.
