Republicans Stealing Democratic Talking Points

Republicans are stealing Democratic and Liberal talking points and President Obama is hardly doing anything about it. Republicans are talking self righteously about Wall Street being bailed out and placing the blame on Democrats! Sure we liberals are the friends of Wall Street! Health Care is now the next target! Make no mistake about it, if we do not have a strong PUBLIC OPTION to keep costs down then the Obama Health Care Bill will make Middle Class Americans the slaves of the health insurance industry! Costs are going to go up. This is a fact! But the public ever in their ostrich mode are not aware of this. When the costs do go up then Democrats will take the blame just like we are being blamed for bailing out the banks! As if we liberals are the friends of the Corporate Collectivists! When is President Obama going to wake up?

(Check these guys above for other great videos at Angry Film Productions) The above is a spoof on Laizze Faire Capitalism. But then after reading Ayn Rand maybe it isn’t. Ever hear of of “Black Water”. They even guard our diplomats in Iraq. I thought that was the job of the Marines! I guess the conservatives don’t “Support Our Troops” but prefer to support their investments! Republicans get away with this. When will Democrats get tough about Universal Health Insurance?

First I don’t believe in the “Public Option”. I believe we should have a Canadian style Universal Health Care System with a “private add-on” option. When will liberals stop allowing Conservatives to walk all over them. This is just one more instance of the “CLASS WARFARE” that is being waged against the American Middle Class by our social betters.

Oh dear I am so scared of European style Socialism! I don’t want to see:

  • 16 Week PAID maternity leave for both parents per child as in Sweden!
  • 11 weeks paid vacations as in Germany! No I would rather be more productive to serve my social betters!
  • Credit Card companies regulated! I think we should pay 29% interest rate at the whims of these credit card companies! That way Middle Class Americans can work to support our social betters! After all “Aggregate Demand” is what keeps the stock market going and so what if Americans are up to their ears in credit card debt! So what if these loan shark rates serve as an income redistribution channel away from the Middle Class to the super rich! After all they are the “Producers”!
  • Universal Health Care: God protect us from this. Especially if it were like Canada or the UK where it is independent of our employer! I want to be dependant on my employer so I can be a serf in the Corporate Collective! That is my place as a Middle Class American!

When are Americans going to wake up? When will the Democrats get some testosterone and start kicking Republican butt? If Obama continues to be such a wimp then he is actually becoming a National Security menace! What do I mean by that? Well if he continues to just sit there and take Republican smears and doesn’t vigorously fight back, then the enemies of America will look upon President Obama as a weakling!

Let’s all shed some tears now for the poor corporate Executives of the Health Insurance Companies! (See the video below)

Dear Mr. President, to hell with your karma, stop blowing kisses at these Republicans. They are like some alas in your own party mere agents of the Corporate Collectivists! I don’t want to see a strong defensive. I want to see liberals go on the OFFENSIVE! We must make the public know how Corporate America is corrupting our democratic political processes with K-Street contributions to all candidates both Republican and Democrat.

We need not only Universal Health Care but:

  • “Contractual Employment” for all “employees” as in France. Not just unionized blue collar but white collar employees as well!
  • Repeal the Bush Tax Cuts but don’t stop there.
  • Repeal the Reagan Tax Cuts for the wealthy as a starter!

When are the Democrats going to stop being such wimps and FIGHT! That is why they were elected! The hell with bi-partisanship!

  1. I noticed the Tennessee Democratic Party website doesn’t list Congressman Jim Cooper as a declared Democratic candidate for 2010. So I called his office in Nashville and they said Congressman Jim Cooper is a declared Democratic candidate for 2010. I suspect the Tennessee Democratic Party website has left him off the list because they don’t want to help endorse him again.

    For example:

    Jim Cooper does not support habeas corpus for prisoners at Guantanamo, and has refused to support legislation to close Guantanamo.

    Jim Cooper has refused to support the “Restoring the Constitution Act of 2007,” which would make “significant changes to provisions of the Military Commissions Act of 2006 by restoring the writ of habeas corpus for individuals held under U.S. jurisdiction, narrowing the definition of an unlawful enemy combatant, preventing the use of evidence gained through torture and coercion, and requiring the U.S. to abide to its Geneva Convention obligations.” More importantly, Jim Cooper has declined to sign onto legislation that requires the U.S. to live up to the Geneva Conventions.

    Jim Cooper has refused to support efforts to find a diplomatic solution to the conflict in Iraq.

    Jim Cooper supports continuing the U.S. aggression in Iraq, he is against insisting on Congressional oversight of the war effort, and wants to give the NSA a pass to go around the FISA Courts.

    Jim Cooper refused to support legislation that would hold mercenaries (a/k/a “contractors”) to the same standards of conduct expected of American soldiers.

    Jim Cooper has refused to push for a ban on cluster bombs used in the vicinity of civilians.

    Jim Cooper has refused to support legislation that would ban the so-called “outsourcing” of torture.

    Jim Cooper has refused to sign onto legislation that would investigate and probably reign in WHINSEC, the U.S. government’s notorious training school for torturers and terrorists.
    Jim Cooper isn’t interested in repealing the so-called “Real ID” act. In case you have not heard, “Real ID” was slipped through into law without debate a few years ago. It gives states a very expensive unfunded mandate to create a national ID card, and many privacy experts see the database it is supposed to create as an invitation to snooping and identity theft.

    Jim Cooper has failed to achieve a leadership position within the U.S. House of Representatives over the past six years in office.

    Jim Cooper voted for the $825 billion economic stimulus package without reading it first.

    Jim Cooper refused to have hometown meetings with the citizens of his community on the issue of Health Care.

    OR COULD IT BE:

    Hint: It’s not the voters of Nashville and Tennessee’s 5th Congressional District, who strongly support a public option. Here are the industries who have donated to Jim Cooper’s campaigns, according to OpenSecrets.org:

    $651,803 Lawyers/Law Firms
    $502,323 Securities & Investment
    $299,103 HOSPITALS/NURSING HOMES
    $237,532 HEALTH PROFESSIONALS
    $216,255 Real Estate
    $197,306 Retired
    $184,759 INSURANCE
    $133,981 HEALTH SERVICES/HMOS
    $128,930 Misc Finance
    $125,398 MISC HEALTH
    $112,050 Commercial Banks
    $107,696 Accountants
    $105,107 Education
    $104,650 PHARMACEUTICALS/HEALTH PRODUCTS
    That totals up to almost $1 million for Jim Cooper from health care special interests!

    No wonder Congressman Jim Cooper is fighting for them — and and not for his constituents — when it comes to health care.
