Republican Voters are a Cult

The Cult of the Republican Party

There is just no getting around it, the Republican voters are a cult. They exhibit all the typical symptoms of cult followers.

  1. They refuse to change their mind regardless of the facts.
  2. They die and allow their neighbors and kids and grandkids to die for the cause
  3. The do things against their own values
  4. They ostracize and excommunicate detractors

The list grows and is very sad. Will they ever wake up?

Right to Work for Less States

It is tragic to see the states who are saddled with the anti-worker legislation called, "Right to Work."

Nevada is a "Right to work for less" state and they are the lowest in most indicators around the entire nation. It is not a coincidence. Right to work, makes for lower wages, worse working conditions, higher rate of industry injuries, poorer communities... The list just goes on and on.

Visit the AFL/CIO for the details of Right to Work for less.

No More Wal-Marts

The citizens of Sparks, Nevada are opposing the building of a new Wal-Mart in their community.

It's nice to see people standing up and making it plain that we don't approve of Walmart's business model. I won't repeat the long list of reasons to oppose a Walmart in your community.

But, let me suggest that you join some of those groups out there rather than waiting until they start building on in your backyard before you act.

There are numerous sites on the Internet where you can join others.

Obama and the TPP

The TPP is a bad legacy for Obama.

Congress just Fast-Tracked Obama's authority on the TPP, the trans Pacific Partnership.
House Ways and Means Committee Chair Dave Camp (R) and top Senate Finance Committee members Max Baucus (D) and Orrin Hatch (R) on Thursday unveiled the Trade Priorities Act of 2014 that would require a simple up-or-down vote on major trade deals without the opportunity to offer amendments to pertinent bills.

This is an awful trade agreement that has a lot of opposition. And, justifiably so. This is bad for America on many levels.
Congressional Democrats have once again expressed opposition to efforts by the administration of President Barack Obama to push the controversial 12-nation Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) trade pact.
One thing that has me puzzled is why Obama wants to pursue this. The TPP is a bad idea for Obama. This kind of legislation will hurt America and will affect how Obama is viewed for generations to come.

The Difference Between Fascism and Socialism and Communism

Ever wonder what these derogatory terms mean when you hear them used to refer to something bad or evil that someone is trying to discredit?

For an in-depth discussion of the definitions and difference between fascism, Socialism, and Communism, check out

In a nutshell, Communism prevents the ownership of any property, especially physical property. Fascism is the merging of corporate interests and the state. This is basically what we see happening to America now that the corporations can buy elections. And, lastly, Socialism is a form of government that puts the people (society) above all else. It is government for and by the people.

America Wants Reasonable Gun Control

America wants reasonable gun control. Then why doesn't it pass?

The will of the American voters is not reflected in the laws that are passed because many of our politicians do not represent the people.

Take for example, Nevada's Governor, Brian Sandoval. The voters demanded that their congress pass background checks. The voters wanted it, the representatives passed and Sandoval vetoed it.

Nevada's governor doesn't care what the people want. He only cares what his financiers what. The gun manufacturer lobby wants free and easy guns and Sandoval vetoed the will of the people to satisfy his owners.

It's time America started voting out and recalling the stooges who represent the money rather than the people.

Examples of Hate Speech

In the wake of the latest Conservative Hate Crimes and Conservative Mass Murders at the Sikh temple in Oak Creek, WI, it has to be time that we as a nation started to combat the hate speech fueling this hatred and these Conservative Hate Group crimes.

See another great post on the Conservative Hate Speech at JustSayWhy.

As always, there'll be plenty of Conservatives who will get their feelings hurt by me calling conservative hate crimes as conservative hate crimes, but you can't deny it any longer no matter how hard to try to keep your conservative head in the sand. Your Republican party is the cause for all these hate crimes. Your Republican party is spewing hate speech at every opportunity and look what is happening.

Just a few examples of recent hate speech coming from the Republican Conservatives:
Michele Bachmann
Ann Coulter
Peter King's Muslim Trials
Rush Limbaugh

The most telling fact showing the root of the problem is the numerous reports out warning about the growing Conservative Hate Violence are all so denied by the Conservatives but they are totally unable to disprove the problem. All they do is deny it and continue to allow it.

And one last point. This blog gets many comments accusing us of being hateful, but can provide no examples or proof. Yet, these same people support a party that is truly involved in promoting hate. Can they really not see the hypocrisy?

Define Communism, Fascism, and Socialism.

Define Communism, Fascism, and Socialism. Go see the JustSayWhy site for a great post on what these terms really mean so we can quit using them in lieu of dirty words. And be careful about calling anyone Fascist as it's what has become of America.

The Uncertainty Trap

We hear the zombies murmuring the same idiotic lines over and over. Never do they stop and try to reason out the reality of their mantras.

The latest one is "it the uncertainty dude." Businesses aren't hiring because they're uncertain if they might have to pay another 1% when they become billionaires.

Ya, sure, anyone with a brain will find that comment downright stupid, but there are armies of zombies out there repeating this same foolishness day after day, "It's the uncertainty, Dude."

Of course, this is the same army of zombies that used to chant, "there's no such thing as global warming," or "giving billionaires more money will make them hate money enough that they will hire some unneeded employees," or "at the times in America when the government regulations were the highest is the time America was the most successful, so we have to cut all regulations to become profitable again."

No one expects the zombies to make any sense anymore. We're all just finally getting deaf to their silly and destructive antics.
