You do realize that your time is running out? When President Obama leaves office in January 2017 there will be no profit to be made from the sort of bigotry you swim in currently. Therefore, none of the elites that share your ideology, with nothing to gain financially from bigotry will jettison you and your kind for those who simply hate the Clintons. This must be a truly sad time for you Tim because there just is not enough hatred for Hillary Clinton to justify the pounds of seething vitriol those with your retrograde ideology have flung at the sitting President.

First the White House,

then Congress,

Then SCOTUS,

Then governorships,

then state legislatures,

Then county governments,

then city councils.

We already have the major cities, the American youth, American minorities, American women under 45, the LGBT community and the unions. So what are the conservatives, the right and worse the far right left with? The church goers who are not Christians? The frightened millions of those who feel their right to have the power of Life and Death in their hands in the form of a gun is more important than the lives of living breathing people? The lifeless people who feel that a woman who has been raped bears a responsibility to give birth to the product of that rape? Those black hearts who feel that a gay or lesbian or transgendered person is somehow less Human than they are because of who they love? The Right has lost. Those with this arcane ideology will lose nothing but their prideful desires for control and the power they have too long held over those who do not share their worldview.

You will still be free to worship as you please; but you will not be able to use the power of the pulpit, the synagogue or the mosque to define what others do.

You will still have your precious guns despite all the blood they spill; but you will not have the right to command an arsenal that can threaten the Peace and power of any government, be it Federal, State or Local.

You will still have Freedom of Speech; but fewer and fewer people over the coming decades will wish to hear the angry protestations of the Right because they are tainted with racist nationalist bigotries that are almost as old as Mankind.

It has been nearly 200 years since a political party destroyed itself right before the eyes of the American people. Now as it was then, the party that died was blind to the change coming and was overwhelmed by it. The new party that rose from the ashes saved the nation from destruction and preserved the greatest Union Terra has ever known. That party was the GOP; its opposition was the Democratic Party. The Democratic Party was rooted in white nationalism, bigotry and the economic need to maintain slavery in the agrarian South using religion as a justification. The GOP was the party of abolitionists who saw the potential in all Men who lived on American soil were and should be full Citizens.

The Union was saved; world wars were fought and still the scars of the Civil War and a Reconstruction still were shown on the backs and necks of America’s black citizens and those who saw them as equals for more than one hundred years. The sins of the Democratic Party’s past were absolved by FDR and his New Deal. The greatest series of government programs to right the economic ship of state in the history of the nation. Democrats became the new abolitionist seeking to abolish poverty; first for the white poor and then for all.

There are and have been millions who took unfair advantage of this system over time and those who abused welfare to their own detriment have been far out shined simply by those millions upon millions who did not become dependent on that system. And this is a teachable moment about the difference between We, Ourselves and those like you Tim. While you would focus on cities that are experiencing high rates of black crime you would ignore the crises of prescription drug abuse and suicide in your own race. While you would shout about the 47 million who depend on the pittance that SNAP offers a family those on ideological right shout at the Heavens about what a waste it is to offer a child $142 a month for food. A living child who is poor has less value to you than a child in the womb. Where is the logic in this argument?

Oh how grand it must have been for people like you one hundred years ago. A feeling of near deity like omnipotence with the only possible threat to your dominance coming from others like you that might whisper some gossip that placed a black mark on your familial reputation. Crime, divorce, alternative lifestyles and mental illness could place you on a social tier just above all those minorities that were tortured by the terrorists of the age who then were no better than ISIS is today.

But your time of worry is nearly at an end. We, Ourselves, of The Collective will ask one simple favor of the dwindling number of Baby Boomer conservatives. Take to your knees and pray for Progressives that will lead America into the middle of this current century. And while you pray to your deities, We will pray to the Fates that the Progressives will be good stewards of the People’s Will and will protect those like you in your minority status better than those like you since time immemorial refused to do.

A TALE OF TWO TRAGEDIES: DYLAN ROOF AND BRYCE WILLIAMS

At some future point in the history of the United States of America, citizens will look back on the 21st Century and wonder, deeply, how the nation survived. I am simply a humble demon journalist; I make no claim of being an oracle. Scholars in that far future time I suspect will be less blinded by partisan political ideology, race and gender and will run a true rule over what took place in the first fifteen years of the century in which you currently live.

Having said that, and not as mere preface, I can say with certainty that there is only the most superficial differences in the hate crimes perpetrated this summer in South Carolina and the most recent one in the Commonwealth of Virginia. Dylan Roof was angry and mentally ill; Bryce Williams was also angry and mentally ill. Dylan Roof slaughtered people in a place where such violence was never expected; Bryce Williams did the same and used the technology of the day to document his slaughter.

There are times in history when events make it possible for the Truth to become something that is determined simply by perspective. A true metaphysician would understand that this is fallacy, but when people are bound, tribally, by how they feel they are perceived by those that are different from them, the “other” who has alien ways and whose appearance is markedly different, the possibilities of what is “true” become infinite. Nothing is more True than that above statement as it relates to the United States of America today.

To simply point out the obvious is not enough. As Editor-in-Chief of this newspaper in its digital form for one day short of ten years now I have striven to impress upon those who work here that simply reporting the news is not enough. Journalism, like life, should be more than the a quotidian rehashing of what happened and to whom. What is documented for history must lead to some hope, must show a forward looking vision of courage in the face of many obstacles– it must inspire people to do more than sit in their living rooms, go to their jobs and mate. The written words of my staff here in Hell were meant to inspire to anger, to joy– to do something to make the lives of those outside your family, your community your tribe, –better.

And so I come back to Dylan Roof and Bryce Williams and their murder. I was asked last night over dinner by a friend who I thought was the more evil of the two. Without hesitation and being a member of the Hellac Bar I said, “Williams,” without missing a beat. My friend, who is a Human Being, implored that this could not be the case. Roof, he explained killed nine while Williams killed only two. I replied, after sipping at my glass of warm spicy broth, “Williams committed suicide and did not allow himself to judged by man. Therefore his crime against his own Soul makes him more selfish than Roof.” I could see that my friend of many decades was growing angry so I calmed him in the only rational way I know how. “John,” I said, “I am speaking from my own prejudicial point of view here in the Afterlife as a demon. I cannot know what the life of human is like or what emotions pour through their nerves or pound in their hearts. About these things I can only observe and surmise. From what I have observed the damage done by Roof and Williams have touched many Souls and done great harm. Here in Hell they will be dealt with according to our laws. This is all I know.”

In closing, I feel I need to share a second conversation that I had after a planning meeting to celebrate our tenth anniversary of this blog which commences tomorrow. Our Majordomo, Pain and I met in my office in the early evening and talked about the events of the day, the waning season and the years all of us have been engaged at this attempt to shed some light on what the Afterlife offers for those who slip the bonds of your dimension to join ours. Midway through the conversation, as the topic turned to race relations in America, Pain intoned, “African-Americans who have not had the full benefit of consumer capitalism must make a choice between what they perceive as culture and Moral Success. By Moral Success, We, Ourselves, of The Collective, mean the ascension to a state where a person has by their actions, daily, must be respected. This is a person who excels at their work no matter what field that work is in. This is a person who is compassionate to those who needs help. This is a person who respects the law. This is a person who seeks this same level of success in the First Life for all those she or he knows. This is a person who respects people and their property. This is a person who craves knowledge above all and loves themselves. African-Americans can continue on the road they are on and the playing field in the American economy and society will never be leveled. Or, they can strive to become a Moral Success by ceasing to deal drugs, having a disdain for their Creator-given intellect and believing they are the victim descendants of horrors that were perpetrated against their enslaved ancestors. The chains of one physical type of slavery were broken in the 1860s, the social slavery of Jim Crown was broken by the 1970s; and now in the 2010s, African-Americans must break the last chain that binds them–that of a culture that makes incarceration more important than matriculation, felonies more important than fatherhood and ignorance of the wider world in the name of tribalism more important than the rabid pursuit of intellectual stimulation. They must do these things in the poorest neighborhoods where they live because– black lives do matter.”

Over the next few days, this newspaper will be publishing articles celebrating the diversity of our staff, highlights of the major stories we have covered in the last ten Terran standard years and, hopefully, making you think.

DINESH D’SOUZA AND THE CANCER OF CONSERVATIVE BIGOTRY

Fundamentally, most conservatives in America are good people I think. What makes them good people is that they want the best for their families and friends and of course themselves. All people, likely save for the ISIS fighters and their doomed theocratic desires and the true, want a better life for the people they hold dearest. I will not try to compare the brutality of the so called Islamic State to the pettifogging men before the cameras of the modern American conservative movement; that would be a miscarriage of journalism.

nixon

What I can say is that actions like those of Dinesh D’Souza just recently on Twitter make me weary of American politics in a way I haven’t felt since the 1970s. Back then as a young man in New York City the entire town talked about one thing and one thing only, Richard Nixon. Like today, there was not a universal dislike of the American President. In fact, there were many who piled into my cab from 1973 until his resignation who felt Nixon was being bullied and blackmailed by the “liberal press” in the form of the Washington Post. Nothing angered New York Republicans in that time more than being dictated to by Washington while at the same time relishing the power of the GOP held White House.

denise odie joseph II

This brings me back to D’Souza who I feel would have fit right in with that cast of characters in the Nixon Administration. Like Haldeman, D’Souza saw himself as a conservative kingmaker of the future and that future was going to be 2016. But like many within the Nixon Administration, Dinesh D’Souza’s personal desires did not match the necessary public facade of fidelity and fairness that conservatives claim as their badge of honor. Conservaties are quick to denounce quietly anyone who openly is bigoted and this is known. What is clear to me as a journalist is that this bigotry which is pervasive in conservative quarters is accepted, gleefully, by the rank and file that will fracture off and form a third party as was suggested by Mark Noonan just this week.

Satanic Monster Drink lady

The bigots in the conservative movement today are no different from garden variety bigots of the Democratic Party of old. They are are white men and the white women to parade with them before the cameras in hope of getting their minutes of fame. They no longer hold the whip hand of the overseer, but they do stoke the fires of hatred on talk radio in the form of Rush Limbaugh and Laura Ingraham and on television in the form of Sean Hannity and Megyn Kelly. Those voices are loud and clear to the 40,000,000 people in America who call themselves conservatives in the United States of America. Their racial and cultural bigotry, coupled with their belief that their religion is the one true religion and their certain knowledge that they are the rightful heirs of all the good things in the wealthiest nation on Terra is what they would serve to the future generations of Americans.

hindsight 2364
In Hindsight

Young people in the United States know better. They see the value of a global, multicultural world where people are accorded respect for their Humanity. It is a better world that we, Progressives, offer not a destruction or an annihilation of the old values. What we simply offer is the opposite of bigotry. Now change is something that tastes bitter in the mouths of conservatives who have held a golden chain around the necks of their people with fear and hatred for so many years. It’s easy to make the case that black people are simply stupid and violent if the only news you ever see supports that mantra. it’s easy to make people in rural communities that have little exposure to anything other than Fox News and Sunday sermons to believe that all gay men are pedophiles, all lesbians want to castrate men and all transgender people just want to lurk in bathrooms if this is their daily call to prayer from the radio to the television to the pulpit. My point here is that everyone Conservative, Progressive and Moderate alike need to take these last few years of the Obama Administration and come to a clear and simple realization. Obama is the President and he will be leaving office in a little less than two years. All the name calling, birther bullshit and bigotry have failed to tear this man down, shake his resolve or make America weaker. The smart kids in the room know that their is a great progressive future just over the next rise. That rise are the elections of 2016, 2018 and 2020. Standing on top of that promontory and looking out into the future I see all of the type of nonsense done by weak and corrupt men like D’Souza falling away like a fog revealing and America that can work together, prosper together and move Terra peacefully into the middle of the 21st Century.

THE GATEWAY PUNDIT’S KRISTINN TAYLOR STILL DOING THE DEVIL’S WORK

Many of our readers may have never heard of the Progressive Labor Party, an offshoot of the Communist Party of the United States of America founded in 1961, but I have because in the 1980s I was a member. The foundation belief of the party is racial equality and worker’s rights. Both of these things are fundamental to my political beliefs even now in Hell as a card carrying [proudly] member of the Alliance Party of Dis [PND] which is the local branch of the Alliance Party of the Hellac Empire [PNIH]. Taylor, at Jim Hoft’s blog the Gateway Pundit have taken notice of the PLP passing out chant flyers in New York City during the protests of the murder of Eric Garner by a New York police officer.

TeaBaggerFlag

From the tone of the post I can see that Taylor who has posted for years at such conservative bastions as the Free Republic is still fighting the Cold War as many conservatives do. Mr Taylor might be seen as many conservatives as the heir apparent to the mantle of digital media power that was once held by Andrew Breitbart a few short years ago. Now, aligned with Jim Hoft at Gateway, Kristinn Taylor has ramped up his pro-white pro Christian first anti-Peace agenda.

race mixing gay marriage protest

The comments to the post echo the conservative hatred for equality between races, genders and sexual orientations. The seething anger directed at anything that might affect the share of the “good stuff” hoarded by the white conservative base by virtue of unearned privilege is palpable. Included in this list of “good stuff” is the understood right to not be killed by police despite resisting arrest. i point to the case earlier this Terran autumn where a white woman, Sarah Culhane, struck several cars, injured a citizen with her car and resisted arrest after a police chase and was not shot and killed.

While the 19 year old Culhane’s parents might be angry and socially embarrassed by the actions of their daughter, but they do not share the grief and loss of burying their child that at this moment haunts the every thought of the parents and loved ones of Eric Garner, Michael Brown and 12 year old Tamir Rice. No matter how much the Culhane’s have to spend to get their daughter’s life of privilege back, and that number with legal fees and payoffs to people who who injured or had their cars damaged might total into the hundreds of thousands of dollars, it is a price they are surely willing to pay vice having to stand at a graveside never to see the living face of their daughter again.

hindsight 2218
In Hindsight

Taylor is doing the Devil’s work once again stoking class, political and racial hatred in the fertile soil of the minds of conservatives that read the Gateway Pundit, listen daily to Rush Limbaugh and only get their news from Fox. I can nearly taste the hypocrisy in this because of this conservative base their is an element that gets a check from the federal government every month which they call an entitlement but relies on the hard work of others to assure it is delivered. Taylor and his followers in the conservative parade would be fine having their way and denying a large bloc of the American people their civil rights in the name of “protecting their way of life” or “maintaining law and order” yet they do not see how the saturation of firearms in America is a contributor to one of the leading causes of death for all Americans. I know the history of Hell teaches the lesson of the death of Shai’tan and this is widely unknown to the Living. Shai’tan gloried in how brutal capitalism was to the poor, the black and women. He delighted in how the gears of making money at all cost drove many to commit the one sin from which there is no salvation. Kristinn Taylor has taken up the dead torch of Shai’tan in deciding his race and his religion trumps the necessity of economic, racial and social equality on Terra and it is by his delight in the poverty and double standards by which all conservatives will be judged in Hell.

I am currently reading John Nolte’s article on 11 reasons the Left has not won the Culture War at Breitbart.com. Simply reading this is making my day because I love to laugh in the morning. Millions of conservatives have likely read this today and more than a thousand have commented. Those comments will be covered by Fred Schwartz later in the day.

Nolte begins with same sex marriage which I see as a full faith and credit legal issue not a moral and religious one. I don’t think, however, that any shop owner has a right to refuse service to a gay couple anymore than they have the right to refuse service to a person based on their race, religion, gender or disability. The author feels that the “voice of the people” has been tossed out in favor of the rulings of “activist judges.” In a bizarre twist John Nolte points to a rise in “Christian entertainment” as proof that Americans really do not want people they do not know of the same sex to get married. The singular example is the film “Heaven is for Real” which has grossed nothing yet because the film is to be released today. Nolte’s point is that Sony TriStar Pictures has decided to release the film on a Wednesday in 2,417 theaters. This film and others like it are one point Nolte shows as proof that on the topic of same sex marriage the Right is winning. I will make a claim here: Heaven is for Real will not make more money between its premiere and the end of the box office weekend than “Transcendence” will make from its opening until Sunday night on a theater by theater basis.

The next Culture War issue is the legalization of marijuana. Both Washington state and Colorado have legalized the weed most notorious to conservatives and more states are moving to decriminalize small amounts. Most recently the state of Maryland did just that becoming the first state south of the Dixon-Line to decriminalize pot. Fourteen other states and the District of Columbia have also done so. Nolte does not address any of the medical reasons for pot use or even recreational ones as a justification for a victory here in the Culture war. Instead he states that abortion rights activists are on their heels quoting an article on Breitbart.com no less about a poll conducted by the Knights of Columbus regarding abortion rights. The Gallup Polling Service numbers show that those who view themselves as pro-Life vice those that are pro-Choice are nearly equal at 48% to 45%. The numbers of those seeing abortion as federally defined from the same poll vice those who do not believe abortion should be legal at all is 52% vice 20% as of May 2013. Nolte loses this battle as well.

Nolte sticks with entertainment decrying the amount of sex on television but reveling in what he calls the return of the masculine male on the National Geographic Channel. These shows according to the author “celebrate the working class and their traditional values.” What he really means is they celebrate being white, Christian and living in the woods or where it’s very cold. The next “reason” the Right is winning the Culture War is the ascendancy of Jimmy Fallon to the Tonight Show as a counter to Stephen Colbert stepping into David Letterman’s slot after his retirement next year. There is no rhyme or reason to this at all.

The next nugget reveals something about conservatives. They like strong male characters. Nolte point to Don Draper [Mad Men] Walter White [Breaking Bad] and Tony Soprano [The Sopranos] as examples of these. They are called “flawed” and “anti-heroes” and I imagine that takes the guilt away for all the nudity, sex, drugs and violence which conservative say they are against on TV.

More entertainment, really? Miley Cyrus is popular but unions are dying says Nolte. I fear conservatives may never come out of this irrational abyss. As if the weakness of unions in America is a good thing for those working class people they say they love?

Conservative media is on the upswing says Nolte. Well get back to me in 20 years when most Fox News viewers are either dead or senile or have slaughtered their family. There is a trend in there demographically if you just take the time to look.

Women are getting birth control but conservatives have their guns! This is awful. War on women much? The fear of the Other is oozing here.

Nolte sees more money in politics as a solution to what ails the Right politically. No John, the key would be to make your tent bigger. Oh, that’s right you can’t do that because you’d have to let in all those brown people, women and gay people on a level playing field.

Yes, Occupy is dead but given time the TEA Party will wither as well. I think the date on that tombstone will be somewhere around 1 February 2017.

What John Nolte needs is a time machine so he can return to that conservative era of his father the 1950s. Back then by conservative standards women were in their place (not barefoot and pregnant but seen and not heard), minorities were second class citizens and it was a crime to be gay. It must be awful for John Nolte to have to watch as all that unearned privilege is redistributed in the form of earned civil rights.

POLITICS IN THE BUFF: MY RESPONSE TO DR J DEANE WALDMAN, “YOU LIE!”

Posted in AFFORDABLE HEALTH CARE ACT, CONSERVATIVE ANTI-INTELLECTUALISM, CONSERVATIVE FEAR, CONSERVATIVE HYPOCRISY, CONSERVATIVE LIES with tags , on 28/12/2013 by sarahbloch

In his article in the American Thinker Dr J Deane Waldman, an associate fellow at the conservative think tank the Rio Grande Foundation makes a litany of pronouncements of failure about ObamaCare. The first concerns the New Mexico Health Insurance Exchange or NMHIX where Dr Waldman states, “The NM HIX has extensive educational outreach activities as well as slick (and expensive) marketing programs in the several languages of our multicultural state. We have “boots on the ground” as navigators and in-person assisters as well as widely-distributed private insurance brokers with long-standing ties to their local communities. With all this and having already spent or committed well over 50 million dollars, the number of individual New Mexicans who have signed up for Obama’s health insurance is… 291.”

The problem with this revision of the fact, okay it’s a lie, is that New Mexico has a hybrid exchange system. NMHIX is designed to help small business owners and their employees find heath insurance coverage that is affordable and fits their needs. New Mexicans who wish to apply for coverage under the ACA will be using the healthcare.gov website until 31 December 2013. As of the most recent reports, this one from Albuquerque Business First, on 11 December 2013, gives accurate figures for the federal exchange singups as of 30 November 2013:

Nearly 1,000 New Mexicans have bought health plans through the federal insurance exchange, healthcare.gov, the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services said Wednesday.
As of Nov. 30, 934 state residents had bought policies through the federal exchange, up from 172 as of Nov. 2, according to HHS figures.
At November’s end, 16,289 New Mexicans had applied for coverage on the federal exchange, and 8,539 had completed the applications. Of the people who had applied for coverage, 9,058 are eligible to enroll in an exchange plan, HHS said.
New Mexico runs its own insurance exchange for small businesses, but decided to let the feds run the exchange for individuals through the end of 2014. The federal exchange, healthcare.gov, was beset with problems during its first two months and people were unable to buy insurance.
At New Mexico’s small business, or SHOP exchange, 150 employees of small companies had bought insurance policies, according to the New Mexico Health Insurance Exchange. A total of 1,295 small businesses had begun the application process to buy insurance for their employees, and 150 had completed the enrollment process.

So this begs a question. Where did Dr Waldman get his 291 figure from? The Koch Brothers? Out of his ass? No, on both accounts. Dr Waldman got that 291 figure from a report of an estimate of the number of people who may enroll in Colfax County, New Mexico posted at the Health Insurance Rate Review site run by the State of New Mexico. From that post [emphasis mine]:

The New Mexico Health Insurance Exchange board has decided to spend nearly $7 million to enroll state residents in health plans offered on the exchange.
The exchange estimates that as many as 84,000 might enroll in exchange-based health plans in 2014. The enrollment and outreach effort will be conducted in all 33 counties and will involve up to 290 people who will be trained to help residents enroll.
But in some counties there won’t be many people to enroll.

In Harding County, for example, there could be 20 people to enroll in exchange health plans, according to the New Mexico Primary Care Association, the organization that won a $4.3 million contract to enroll residents in exchange-based health plans. According to the NMPCA, the county has 411 people between the ages of 16-64. The county’s total population was 704 in 2011, according to the U.S. Census Bureau.
In Colfax County, NMPCA estimates it will be able to get 291 people enrolled in exchange health plans. And in De Baca County, the estimate is 52 people.
The exchange board has also agreed to spend $1 million for chambers of commerce, universities and faith-based organizations to enroll residents though the exchange.
New Mexico has 345,794 residents aged 18 to 64 who don’t have health insurance, the NMPCA says. Of those, 187,674 earn more than 138 percent of the federal poverty level, potentially making them eligible to buy insurance through the exchange.
The exchange is funded with nearly $54 million in grants from the U.S. Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services and is supposed to be operational on Oct. 1.
Five insurance companies have been approved to sell policies on New Mexico’s exchange.

I doubt if Dr. J. Deane Waldman did not intentionally look for any number that he could use to deny any level of success for ObamaCare in New Mexico. I just wonder why it is so important for him to fabricate his data? It would have been obvious had he taken the number from Harding County where there may be only 20 people to sign up for ObamaCare. Everyone would have seen through his Betsy Mccaughey-like lie then. I am not the least bit concerned about saying that this health insurance initiative will be the enduring legacy for President Obama.
