Hurricane Bearing Down on Republican Convention...Sign From God?

We are a divided nation, and Washington DC is in gridlock as Republicans in Congress do everything they can to thwart any ideas that would improve the economy before the November Elections...the Republicans have spent the last two years tossing America's middle and lower classes under the bus in the name of winning the White House, seeing us as nothing more than acceptable collateral damage in a WIN AT ALL COST race to put themselves back in power so that they can perpetrate their Radical Right Wing Tea Party Agenda on the nation.

This past Sunday Todd Akin exposed an ugly truth about the party, showed Americans the dark and sinister under belly of the party that wants to send women back to the day when they are bare foot, pregnant and in the kitchen. Todd Akin has shown that the Republican Party is full of radical religious zealots with an agenda that runs contrary to the will of the people...which does make one wonder as a tropical storm/soon to be hurricane sets its sites on Tampa...is God sending the Republicans a message?

I'm not an overly religious person, would not be one to jump to this conclusion, but we all know just how God Fearing some in the Republican Party really are, and if some of their thoughts on obeying the word of God are correct, it might stand too reason that God is sending them a sign that they have strayed to far off the path of righteousness in the name of politics, in the name of the Republican Party. Perhaps God would support a woman's right to choose, especially in cases of Rape and Incest. Perhaps God, like Nancy Reagan supports stem cell research and the lives it saves. Perhaps a Hurricane taking a direct hit on Tampa, raining on Mitt Romney's parade is God's way of waking up the Republican Party, his way of telling them they have gone to far.

Or maybe this tropical storm is just a bit of bad luck that might put a damper on the Republican Party's National Convention.

"Scribes, Pharisees, Hypocrites...and (R)epugnicons!!!"

How can these "people" who fervently believe they have God Almighty on their side behave in such vile and utterly reprehensible ways? If they believe in the Bible and Jesus then they had better start studying it a LOT harder, because their actions are about as evil as you can get, starting with their collusion to obstruct Obama on every single thing he has tried to do from day-one in office. They are control freaks and self-appointed guardians of everyone else's morality, relentlessly determined to breakdown the separation of church and state, destroy critical thinking skills in upcoming generations by attempting to pass legislation to outlaw it in public schools, dictators of what a woman is allowed to do with her own body, preachers of "righteousness" regarding marriage, and disseminators of disinformation, lies, and propaganda. They comprehend nothing of true value and worth to society at large (like stopping global warming and mass species extinction e.g.) and are thus akin to foul, rancid, stenchful, dead beasts rotting away and polluting the air of common good for all citizens of this planet (including themselves, because they are too stupid to even realize that).

They are evil, pernicious swine!!!

Then you better believe that they have many contingency plans in place to guarantee that they still win the whitehouse and the senate... nobody is this stupid as to expose such EXTREME view and policies, stand by them and then believe that anyone would vote for their views, unless they had an ace in the hole, like voter suppression, or as I like to call "Rigging the Election". I guarantee you, they are more than rich enough to have these backups in place.. no one would keep up the smoke screen of their radical views, unless they want you to look in that direction, and not at their sleight of hand on the ballot boxes. Just like that corrupt election official did in wisconsin in 2010 when she hid about 10,000 ballots until about 2 weeks after the elections were over... then suddenly the ballots 'reappeared' with a claim that they had been lost. Don't doubt it people, like that idiot judge down in texas said, there is going to be a civil war, he just failed to mention that he and his ilk are the ones who are planning to start it if they don't get their way.

Vampires cannot tolerate light. Cockroaches scurry away under exposure. At long last their true nature has been revealed to a candid world. It is all just a matter of spreading the truth about them now. They know not how else to behave. An animal cannot behave as human. Their poisonous and dangerous venom of lies and deceit can only be inflicted on the unwary. Let us also Occupy the Holy Ground of Truth as well as Occupy Wall Street and spread the Gospel of Progressiveness in our Holy War; our economic and political jihad against the forces of darkness. Let us smite these philistines of intrigue and deception. Let us be as determined as they are (no, more so) to carry out our own holy mission of Truth about their evil ways, for they are the true enemies of righteousness...demons of all that is unholy. They are monsters set on devouring the sleeping sheep. Let us continue our holy march against them and trample them underfoot as the vermin they are, for we are now engaged in a great Civil War; a Battle of the Ages; of Good vs. Evil.

Let us forever press on to the goal handed to us; to break the bonds of servitude and slavery that keep us in chains to these angels of darkness. Let us fear not, my brothers and sisters, to go forth with the mighty sword of Truth and smite our enemies with the righteous Word of Light...for we are of the Light, not of the Dark as they are.

I, Underdog, have written this by my own hand. May the love of Truth and righteousness be with you always. Amen.

Basically, there is about 30%, maybe as high as 40% of all voters who are evenly split as being neo conservative evangelicals on the right, and progressive democrats on the left.

This 30% to 40% draws all the attention away from the liberal moderates and the moderate liberals. So when you think that all republicans are one way, you have been brainwashed by the progressives.

When a republican thinks that all democrats are the same, they too have been brainwashed by the neo conservatives.

[-] 1 points by VQkag2 (16478) 2 years ago

So everyone is brainwashed and all the same? Are you brainwashed?

"liberal moderates" - "moderate liberals" Hey. you just switched those words around. Which is which? No conservatives? I'm confused. Is it all just the same?

[-] 1 points by DebtNEUTRALITYpetition (638) 2 years ago

A liberal moderate is a republican with a brain that has not been entirely hijacked by the evangelical republicans.

A moderate liberal is a democrat who does not fall for the progressive bullshit, you know, progressives who pick fights because they think all of his friends will protect him.

These two groups, moderate liberals and liberal moderates are the marginalized majority in the U.S.

Marginalized because their abilities to problem solve are less news worthy than watching an idiot male republican politician attempt to explain forcible rape, or progressives doing equally wacky things.

[-] 2 points by VQkag2 (16478) 2 years ago

"liberal moderate is a republican" Nope. Sorry we disagree! Never heard of such a label.

However,

Progressives care for others (you got a problem with progressives?)

Conservatives care only for themselves. (you left conservatives out of your description, how do they fit in?)

[-] 1 points by DebtNEUTRALITYpetition (638) 2 years ago

Neo cons and or evangelicals make up about 40 to 45% of all republicans. The rest are liberal moderates, or, moderate conservatives if you like.

Progressives are probably around 30% to 35% of all democrats.

[-] 2 points by VQkag2 (16478) 2 years ago

The numbers are relevant how? & where are you getting these numbers? The same place you got the term liberal moderate republican? lol

Akin is an embarrassment (at best) http://www.theonion.com/articles/i-misspokewhat-i-meant-to-say-is-i-am-dumb-as-dog,29256/

But I don't think it is fair to extend Akin's views to Republicans in general. Akin is getting a lot of pressure from his party to get out of the race. http://www.washingtonpost.com/politics/gop-eye-tuesday-deadline-for-akin/2012/08/21/fcf695a2-eb8c-11e1-9ddc-340d5efb1e9c_story.html

[-] 2 points by repubsRtheprob (1209) 2 years ago

There are at least 40 house republican members (including the republican vice presidential nominee Paul Ryan) who agree that rape victims should be forced to carry their rapists baby. The republican platform includes no abortion even in cases of rape!. The republican personhood bill co sponsored by Akin & Ryan also includes new rape catagories in order to remove the right to an abortion for rape victims was approved by almost 100% of the house repubs!!!

The repubs are not asking Akin to drop out because they disagree with him but because he screwed up by speaking their position out loud, and the only way they could survive is by throwing him under the bus.

This is not Akins flob. This is the republican party position.

[-] 1 points by LetsGetReal (1420) from Grants, NM 2 years ago

That's true. That is a separate issue from whether pregnancies can result from rape. Perhaps I misunderstood what you meant by Republicans being "confused about rape". I thought you were referring to Akin's opinion that a woman's body has some way to prevent pregnancy if it is a "legitimate rape". I haven't heard any other Republicans suggest that.

[-] 1 points by repubsRtheprob (1209) 2 years ago

There have been others. He ain't the 1st or the only! But it is all part ofthe attempt to get rape victims to not have abortion. If legitimate rape cannot result in pregnancy then fake rape victims can be forced to carry the baby.

[-] 1 points by JesseHeffran (3903) 2 years ago

I sometimes wonder if their stance on abortion is more because of economic matters and less about morality. It is kind of hard to have a well populated labor pool when abortions are so readily available. kidding of course...

and yet, Obama threw Glass Stegall under the bus at the democrat platform discussion. It actually had a majority of support and was not even brought up for discussion.

Um, what was OWS's main concern when they started their protests? Wasn't the reintroduction of Glass Steagall one of the top three issues, along with end the fed and jail wall street fraudsters. Oh wait, Obama just EXONERATED Goldman Sachs.

Wow, that's two OWS points shat on by Obama. And wait, who is considering an audit the fed plank to their platforms, why, it's the republicans.

But you go and pin your entire belief system on the words of one republican moron.

[-] 0 points by repubsRtheprob (1209) 2 years ago

republican/conservative policies created all our problems

Repeal of Glass Steagal and all weak fin reg are conservative dogma. period. Democrats fight for stronger reg, like Dodd Frank- watered down by.... wait for it..... Republicans!

Same with the weak laws covering execs personal liability. Created by repubs. Strengthen those laws and we can arrest some fin execs.

Ows supports money out of politics, Repubs do not! We support expanded Pell grants Repubs do not. We support public healthcare option repubs do not.

Dems support all these important issues, And are not confused about rape. Why are the republicans confused about rape? Are you also confused about rape?

[-] 1 points by DebtNEUTRALITYpetition (638) 2 years ago

You are not correct. It was Barney Frank that ridiculed George Bush's warnings that a housing collapse was coming.

What I do find interesting is that neither the democrats or republicans were willing to soften the housing bubble that they knew was about to burst, that is why it is silly to actually believe that one side is perfect and the other causes all the problems.

[-] 0 points by repubsRtheprob (1209) 2 years ago

It is conservative policies that created all our problems. Including Bushs Housing bubble. Progressive policies will correct it all

[-] 1 points by DebtNEUTRALITYpetition (638) 2 years ago

If you know what the Glass Stegall re-enactment was, you, as would most democrats, would be FOR IT.

I can go into the forum archives and find topics about the importance of Glass Steagall being reintroduced. Are OWS supporters in favor of Glass Stegall also Larouche wackos?

[-] 1 points by repubsRtheprob (1209) 2 years ago

The republicans created these problems. repealing Glass Steagal was conservative policy dogma. Anyone who approved/signed were wrong. This not Barnie Franks fault. That is just ridiculous! It's obviously dishonest repub talking points. You are wrong!

[-] 0 points by DebtNEUTRALITYpetition (638) 2 years ago

Are you ok? Please take a deep breathe, and eventually exhale.

Dare I mention that Obama's minions took the repeal of the Glass Steagal repeal off of the democrat platform without even discussing it.

[-] 1 points by repubsRtheprob (1209) 2 years ago

NO!. You are obviously deranged, and overly accusatory on one particular individual when it was years of republican/conservative policies that created these problems. Why the fuck would I give a republican the time of day?. I'm not lookin for any instruction from partisan republicans. Keep you links you selfish, inconsiderate right wing piece of shit!

[-] 0 points by DebtNEUTRALITYpetition (638) 2 years ago

The Glass Stegall ammendment was signed at the end of Bill Clinton's term. He rejected the bill once, it was worked on some more, than congress approved it by 90%, so he signed it knowing it would go through no matter.

Less than 2 years later the Bush administration noticed problems starting to emerge and congress would not listen. Frank was a big reason congress would not listen. I provided two links, ignore if you want, but the second link is Frank himself telling everybody else they are full of shit for worrying about a housing bubble.

[-] 0 points by repubsRtheprob (1209) 2 years ago

Nope! never was in the platform, I ain't seen any evidence to support that rumor. Sorry.

But the Democrats did pass financial regulations that republicans watered down, offered no votes, and have promised to repeal. The Democrats have also committed to push more financial regulations, they will if we replace conservatives with progressives.

[-] 1 points by DebtNEUTRALITYpetition (638) 2 years ago

Let me understand this, the meeting to decide the democrat platform is really the meeting to rubber stamp the democrat platform. It would appear the democrat platform was actually decided somewhere else at an earlier time.

Those LaRouche bad guys, how dare they actually try and have a discussion about including Glass Stegall to the democrat platform when a majority of those attending the platform meetings were for it!

Politics as usual, no?

People did not start the gr8 opt-out until during the Vietnam era.

Kids in school were taught critical thinking skills in many areas across the country as we were trying to raise the best and the brightest to stave off communism.

That program seemed to change when the educated of the country started protesting government policy instead of accepting all actions as proper red white and blue activity.

[-] 1 points by repubsRtheprob (1209) 2 years ago

I saw a story about the lack of teaching critical thinking these days. It mentioned that the approach started in the '60's. I connected it to the desegregation of the public schools. Maybe related?

[-] 2 points by DKAtoday (28513) from Coon Rapids, MN 2 years ago

Desegregation was a different issue - but it ties in with the people getting together to protest injustices - and forcing government to do something about it rather then let them continue to turn a blind eye on the ills of this society.

So - long winded comment/reply short - Yep - You Betcha - related.
