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?

The outraged shouting of Ed Schultz, Sean Hannity, Al Sharpton, Bill O’Reilly and Rush Limbaugh has been measured to be greater than 10,000 cows burping out a rendition of, “Camptown Races” every minute for an entire year.

The GOP claims to be the party of law and order but fights to let terrorists and the mentally ill people buy semi-automatics at gun shows. Some might call this hypocrisy but Republican marketing guru Frank Luntz might use a snappy, focus group tested phrase for it like, “Freedumb”.

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

ALEC dresses up their agenda to lull the public while in the background they work to ensure legislation is geared toward the benefit of Corporations alone and while we may realize some crumbs they deign to throw at us, make no mistake they are in it to win it for themselves and their corporate masters alone.
