CLARITY IN CLOUDED TIMES WITH SOME HELP FROM THE REVEREND DOCTOR MARTIN LUTHER KING JR

Posted in PROGRESSIVES ON THE MARCH on 12/01/2016 by Majordomo Pain

We, Ourselves, of The Collective, noting the bigotry and nativism rampant from Conservatives in America today share a quote that must inspire Progressives on the cusp of the most important election of your lives. No longer is the Oval Office a place of bragging rights for one group over another it is about the salvation of America from a the dark rocks along the shore upon which your democracy will crash if the base of the Conservatives gets its way. We, offer you this inspiration from Reverend Doctor Martin Luther King Jr.

“Courage is an inner resolution to go forward despite obstacles.
Cowardice is submissive surrender to circumstances.
Courage breeds creativity; Cowardice represses fear and is mastered by it.
Cowardice asks the question, is it safe?
Expediency ask the question, is it politic?
Vanity asks the question, is it popular?

But, conscience ask the question, is it right? And there comes a time when we must take a position that is neither safe, nor politic, nor popular, but one must take it because it is right.”

POLITICO: TEA PARTY SUPPORT PLUMMETS TO 17%

Posted in POLITICS, PROGRESSIVES ON THE MARCH, RACE AND POLITICS IN AMERICA, TEA PARTY on 26/10/2015 by sarahbloch

sarah_bloch_9

In a stunning affirmation of the true nature of the TEA Party, the website Politico is reporting this morning that support for the conservative “grassroots” organization has dropped to its lowest level ever among Republican Party moderates in a recently taken poll from Gallup. Nick Gass writes, “Just 17 percent of adults said they are currently tea party supporters, compared with 32 percent in November 2010, the peak of support. Opposition to the tea party stands at 24 percent, down from the high of 31 percent last year. But a record 54 percent said they are neither supporters nor opponents.” This poll comes on the heels of the House Benghazi Committee’s meltdown and Hillary Clinton’s extraordinary week just passed.

That the support of the TEA Party from its peak of 32% among GOP moderates just after the 2010 midterm elections when the GOP seized control of both houses of Congress has been halved is a clear sign of resignation among ideological conservatives that they must endure the remaining 14 months of President Obama’s second term and have no recourse against him. The TEA Party was billed as a conservative grassroots movement that rose out of anger about government bailouts and the Affordable Care Act but those who observe politics realize that it was engineered with both corporate money and political money as a front against the 44th President. Conservative Republicans, who once supported the TEA Party at a rate of 63% now support the movement with 42%.

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.

ROWAN COUNTY KENTUCKY CLERK KIM DAVIS SHOULD NOT BE FIRED BECAUSE SHE WAS A WHORING SLUT BEFORE SHE FOUND RELIGION SHE SHOULD BE FIRED BECAUSE SHE IS WHAT THE FAR RIGHT HATES THE MOST SOMEONE WHO IS TAKING PUBLIC FUNDS TO DO NO WORK

Posted in COUNTER-THEOCRACY, FRED SCHWARTZ OPINIONS, IN HINDSIGHT, LGBTQ RIGHTS, MARRIAGE EQUALITY, PROGRESSIVES ON THE MARCH, RELIGIOUS BIGOTRY, UPPER MIDDLE CLASS WHITE TRASH on 03/09/2015 by Fredrick Schwartz, D.S.V.J., O.Q.H. [Journ.]

fredschwartz1

Sure, I was ready this morning to write about what a hypocrite on marriage Kim Davis is considering she’s been married four times had twins out of wedlock and divorced three times. Her life from 1984 until her bolt from the blue conversion four years ago is no caricature of conservative religious people in America it is the reality. But when you come right down to it I could not possibly care less about who Kim Davis fucked while she was married or how many times she went to a clerk to file for divorce. [I am struggling with the fact that if their had been a really fundamentalist clerk at the time she was pregnant out of wedlock and trying to file her final papers what a shitstorm that would have been in 1994.–F.S.]

Kim Davis is paid $80,000 a year to be Rowan County clerk. She is being paid to not do her job currently in a place where the median household income is $33,081. Davis as an individual makes more than twice the household income of this rural, poor county. She is living a lifestyle far above the people who come to her office on a daily basis. Conservatives have whined for decades about welfare and how much money can be saved by cutting off single mothers and minorities who need a safety net.

same-sex-marriage

In Hindsight
Well here’s your chance conservatives to cut off the money spigot to a religion crazed bigot. Just taking the gap between the household income figure for Rowan County, $46,919, and dividing that by 12, $3,909.92 would provide food stamps [at Kentucky’s rate of 127.33 per person per month.-F.S.] for 30 people. Not three people or even fifteen people but 30! For all these years conservatives have foamed at the mouth about taxpayer money being wasted. Here you go right wingers this is your chance to show America and the world that your fiscal issues are more important than your social issues. The Supreme Court has ruled and legally no matter what your religion [if a Muslim clerk in a urban center was making the same refusal I would have written a basically similar article but I doubt if a Muslim female clerk would have anything like Kim Davis’ marriage and divorce record.–F.S.] marriage licenses must be issued to same sex couples seeking to marry. Kim Davis needs to get off the Rowan County dole and see how well her retrograde religious bigotry will play out in the private sector. Rowan County must fire Kim Davis; she can keep her religion but not the people’s money.

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.

Amazona there is a difference between taking a short cut to the Moral High Ground and actually looking out from the Moral High Ground. I’ll give you this point you are absolutely right that it is as simple as voting for Progressive or Liberal candidates to get your moral superiority biscuit. As a group Progressives do stand for good things. Being against poverty, torture, corruption, misogyny, bigotry, abuse aren’t simply things that Progressives are against though. Conservatives are also against many of these societal scourges.

This is where things get confusing and clearly why conservatives are tripped up and find themselves unpopular both electorally and in general. Progressives don’t require a purity test, a loyalty test, or a religious affiliation to walk into our tent. Conservatives with their messages about tax rates being too high should, on that issue alone, have had a way in to the minds of the moderates and independents out there but for some reason they have a social agenda that is more important to them than the economic agenda.

Issues like same sex marriage, abortion and immigration are where conservatives fail simply because their tent is not as inclusive. I’m not going to be so closed minded as to say that this is because of some grand bigoted conspiracy but it is what it is. Conservatives offer little to blacks, Latinos, members of the LGBTQ community, single mothers or the non religious. The coalition that has been built by conservatives since the fall of Nixon of working class whites in the rural West and South and a few upper middle class and wealthy whites who have an agenda driven by heredity and inheritance. This coalition had a majority during the Reagan era and had the Moral High Ground in the dying age of the Cold War. This coalition drove America forward to a conservative vision that likely thought that with political power would come the power to change society; to pull it back from the brink. At this point in Reagan’s second term no one would have imagined that 18 states and the District of Columbia would recognize the marriage rights of same sex couples.

And yet, thirty years later, here you are in an America that seems nearly alien to you. Looking up at people like me who are standing on top of the mountain of Morality. What happened? Is the question most of you are asking and that is the smartest question you can ask and it has an easy answer. Three decades ago, the Greatest Generation were the electoral force in America. They were more conservative than even you Amazona having never dabbled in the experimentation of the 1960s and 1970s with Liberalism as you have said you did. These men and women who were adults in the 1940s and 1950s were around your age now in the 1980s and Reagan was an ultimate relief to them. Hey were afraid the Greatest were that all of their hard work to secure freedom and liberty for the coming generations of THEIR CHILDREN was going to wasted by the creeping Socialism, Diversity and Depravity that they saw in Liberalism.

The answer is obvious what happened. Those from the Greatest Generation had children, the Baby Boomers, and those Boomers had children in the 1970s. Those Generation X children had children Generation Y, or the Millenials. Being born now to the Generation Y women are the Digital Natives of the information age or Gen Z kids. The easy answer to the question of what happened to fear of authoritarian religious, political or corporate power is the last generation that never questioned them has nearly died entirely and has been replaced with an ever more questioning set of grandchildren.

Those grandchildren continued the trend of questioning all authority that began in the 1960s into the new Millennium. I’ll be the first to admit that the War on Poverty was a failure because it simply threw money at a problem that could not be solved so simply. However, in that time the Greatest Generation still held sway on all matters social and the ground was not yet fertile for the sort of change that one sees today.

hindsight 2315
In Hindsight
On my side of the great political divide Progressives worry about the pendulum swinging back toward conservatism on a daily basis. Maybe the generation that will be born to young girls that are infants now in America in the 2030s and 2040s will hearken back to the nostalgic days of the 1940s and 1950s. Who knows? By the time they go to the polls for the first time they will live in an America so saturated in information both for the good and the bad that the messages that resonated with 21 year olds in 1945 will seem as archaic as silent movies do today.

I take Fred Schwartz’s decision to distance this newspaper from the cancer that is Blogs4Victory very seriously so after this example of conservative hypocrisy from the disgraced Bill Logan I too will be taking a sabbatical from commenting on their delusions. These people constantly state that the writers and researchers here are living in a fantasy world yet it is the fantasy that is supported by their own religious beliefs. “There cannot be a Heaven without a Hell,” is a constant in this Afterlife. Yet religious Conservatives at B4V mock that their is even a possibility that I, or Fred Schwartz or Pain even exist in the realm where we do live. To sum up, their fantasies, that all of their loved ones go to Heaven must be true because it supports their worldview; our reality is impossible because it is in conflict with their ideal that all Conservatives go to Heaven.

This level of delusion is important to understand when dealing with Conservatives especially ones of an age that lived through the Cold War. The fight against the Marxist-Leninism of the Soviet Union was supposed to be the last great fight that America was ever to have. It would be a winner take all battle between Communism and Capitalism, Christianity versus Atheism and Democracy versus Totalitarianism. Of course, this hasn’t been the case. There were many complexities politically and economically that do not fit into neat little boxes regarding the collapse of the Soviet Union. The same thing would have been true has America been broken up for similar reasons and the Soviets won the ideological battle for Terra.

Bill Logan, aka Neocon1, makes light of many things. He mocks the working poor and their struggle for a Living Wage. What he does is typical of a man who is angry that Death is so close and he has not been rewarded on Terra with what he felt he deserved because he was loyal to his racial tribe and religious tribe. As a Human Being, in that great struggle to become one he has failed because he has chosen the opposite path of Nelson Mandela and now fights for hate rather than love. To be on the side of hate is to relish lying and obscuring the facts to convince the other rotting souls who ally with conservatism that the Progressives are due for punishment for taking away the golden future that white Conservatives were promised. That golden future, sadly for Bill Logan is neither the golden shower he lusts for, nor is it a golden parachute; that future now is being enjoyed by the powerful oligarchs of the American 1%.

Neocon1 in his most recent tour de force of hypocrisy and obfuscation note that McDonald’s is installing 7,000 touch screens at restaurants to replace cashiers. It is a response to last week’s push by fast food workers for a Living Wage in the United States. Neocon1 gives the impression with his post that the hammer is going to come down on McDonald’s workers for standing up to their corporate masters. However, this story is neither about McDonald’s restaurants in the United States nor is it a current reaction to the protests. The story is about restaurants in Europe and was originally written in May of 2011. In the article itself, are the words, “McDonald’s says they have no interest in replacing cashiers with kiosks in Australia, however, or anywhere else for that matter.” So once again Neocon1 depends on the rabid stupidity of the other walking corpses of Conservatism who gobble up the feces of bigotry and anti-intelelctualism at B4V. To me they are to be pitied not to waste digital space on here or anywhere else. For at least a few months, unless their crimes of hypocrisy are grave, I will devote my time to pressing home the Progressive agenda to my American readers and enjoying the warm weather here in Hell.

As_DaVinci_would_have_seen_Pain

Yesterday Ron Mapes of Concord, New Hampshire wrote the following letter to the editor of the Concord Monitor:

“The fact that we are here today to debate raising America’s debt limit is a sign of leadership failure. It is a sign that the U.S. government cannot pay its own bills. It is a sign that we now depend on ongoing financial assistance from foreign countries to finance our government’s reckless fiscal policies. Increasing America’s debt weakens us domestically and internationally. Leadership means that, ‘the buck stops here.’ Instead, Washington is shifting the burden of bad choices today onto the backs of our children and grandchildren. America has a debt problem and a failure of leadership. Americans deserve better.”– Sen. Barack Obama, March 2006

I think this statement by Obama, failed leader of this nation, pretty much explains to all honest, true red-blooded American patriots who love God and country what exactly is wrong with the United States of America right now. The time for Obama’s impeachment is now; the proof is there many times over. It’s time to get rid of those we elected last time and bring in honest, faithful political leaders who have the guts to get the job done and get it done right the first time.

It’s obvious those we elected last time were bought and paid for, not elected. Wake up and get it right this time.

Mr Mapes selectively quotes then Senator Obama’s speech of 16 March 2006 on the floor of the United States Senate. The full text of that speech is archived here at Snopes.com. The point the letter writer is trying to make is not a simple one, however, We, Ourselves, see the message as very clear. President Obama, to Mr Mapes and millions of other like minded Americans, is not an honest person. To the conservative element bent on having its way despite being a retrograde minority view sees the 44th President of the United States as the antithesis of a “true red blooded American patriot.” The leader of the free world therefore to the far right does not love the G-d that all conservative white Americans worship on this very day. And most definitively this man that was twice elected President does not love the country despite garnering 135 million votes in those two elections and presiding over the most difficult economic recovery in American since the Great Depression.

Mapes says the time for Impeachment of the sitting president is now. We, Ourselves of The Collective and the Meditators feel America, to use a popular colloquialism has bigger fish to fry. We believe that those who believe as this man does are fighting a war long lost on behalf of the memory of those long dead who reaped the benefits of generations of misogyny, bigotry and power concentrated in the hands of a tribally loyal few. The Collective understands that there is huge profit in telling people with closed minds exactly what they want to hear. Rush Limbaugh has made a career of doing just that. We, Ourselves, would ask you, the reader of this post, what has Limbaugh ever offered as a solution to any of the problems that America has today? Better, when his ideology ruled in Washington did he do anything other than to support his side blindly?

The Meditators often ask why people, no matter how tribally motivated do such things? We ask the same question in regard to minority violence in urban centers all across America? But unlike the far right which seeks only to blame others for its ills while offering nothing new as a solution, We Ourselves do strive to put measures forth to stem the suffering of the American middle class. Ron Mapes ideology is not the disease it is a symptom of the inability for a segment of America not to be able to let go of the need to have someone to struggle against vice joining the fight for Progress. Trillions have been wasted on the War on Drugs and the War on Poverty which were doomed without utilizing the proper tools. The solutions to both are legalization and education. To be a member of free society demands both responsibility and sacrifice and to that end ideological conservatives and thugs that want to hurt people and damage property are joined at the hip. Neither see what they are doing to their reputations as a group as harm because they are enjoying their moment in the sun.

Impeachment is not the solution to the problems that Ron Mapes sees that are a cancer in America, because Obama is not the problem. The problem in America now is that the conservative ideologues on Main Street USA have taken the Middle Class hostage piled them onto a train speeding toward a mountain tunnel where the poor are forced to roam and are smiling all the way to the bank with overflowing campaign coffers thanks to Citizens United. If you want more freedom and prosperity in America do not vote for the party that wants to send America back to back alley abortions, racial segregation and criminal prosecutions for LGBT persons; vote for a party that wants all people to be at least middle class and if you falter will be there with a safety net to allow you to reach for the brass ring. Bruce Currie who comments on the letter makes the obvious even more clear:\

This letter illustrates the extent to which some in this country are completely divorced from reality–when it comes to economics, politics, and virtually anything that requires coherent thought. That’s a summary description of those who identify as Tea Party members or their fellow travelers. Ted Cruz and his merry band of pranksters have led the Republican Party to the brink–and are taking the country with it. They’re getting hammered in the polls, and dragging the greater Republican Party down with them. Their recklessness is hurting millions of Americans who depend on the government, and yet we have some here who are cheering them on, and blaming the president and the Democrats for what is entirely the fault of a few extremist Republicans. Have they no appreciation for facts and the truth? Have they no shame?

Does this sound familiar?
