We Can Argue About the Other Stuff Later... Amen to That!

Author: Jeanette Borges

I found this website while Googling “tea party, taxes and  corporations”. The reason I did that search is because I am thinking to myself “what did I miss”. You see I guess I was with the “tea party” before it morphed into something I do not agree with and do not recognize. Besides abortion and the tyrannical religious right, there is the birther movement, the shariah law movement and the stop spending on petty crap movement. I am not a tea partier since all of that happened. Allot of people are leaving it because of all that crap.

These are not accidental distractions that keep us from the core issue of huge government and huge spending for what is tantamount to oligarchies especially on wars.  I like Ron Paul and THAT movement long before Obama was elected. I opposed the war spending then, the Medicare Part D programs and yes the Bush tax cuts for the wealthy because in times of war you help pay for them especially if you profit from them! Don’t make the masses pay for it since their loved ones are coming back in body bags and broken from these wars. The Bush tax cuts for the wealthy left the war bill to the masses didn't it? How patriotic is that? Anyways….

One of things I see happening in with Republicans especially,  (who profess to be hearing the Tea Party)  and the right wing media (all media really),  is that the Tea Party is being used to justify cutting taxes for the wealthiest corporations. They say its what we the people want.

So I see this site after I searched  to see if I was crazy and if there were others out there that have not been corrupted or co-opted. “MONROE, WA) -- A number of Tea Party groups and members from across tee state will hold a “Taxpayer Emancipation March” in Olympia on Friday April 15, the day income tax returns are due.

In a statement the Olympia Tea Party said the purpose of the rally was to protest, “tax slavery” and to protest what it described ad the “Confederation of Big Business, Big Government, and Big Unions.”

“We are peacefully calling for an end to the Confederation of Big Business, Big Government and Big Unions that are forcing Tax Slavery on the middle class,” said Olympia Tea Party head Ken Morse.

I was sooo happy to read that!!! “We oppose the big business special interest influences over our nation”.

You know the Tea Party is being used right now to cut trillions of taxes for those that can afford to buy Congress while the Tea Party we are told wants to cut planned parenthood, NPR, Medicare amongst other things. I believe that in order to afford these cuts for the “oligarchy” you have to cut other stuff. In order to continue to fund the wars you have to cut other stuff and that is exactly what both parties are doing in name of the Tea Party. They are cutting other stuff to fund the wars and giving tax cuts leaving the middle class to pay for the debt. So what the hell is the matter with the Tea Party that they have completely lost their way and appear to be going along with all of this?

“We oppose the big business special interest influences over our nation” Well I agree and I thought that’s what we were all about, because the truth is that our government spends and pillages us and we are the mess we are in because of the influence big business, including the war machine, has over whores in Congress.

I would love to speak with people that are able to keep the movement on point and well, that have not not been corrupted. Are you concerned that our message has been hijacked? Is your movement bipartisan because the Tea Party also used to be THAT. How do you deal with the abortion, birther and Medicare issues? Do you agree with cutting Medicare before anyone in Congress move to stop funding the wars?

I don’t know everything but I would really welcome speaking with people that are thinking about the same things. The Tea Party in Florida has become a corporate puppet and “show me the birth certificate” movement. They want to take back the government from Obama, but he doesn’t have it. Oligarchies do. A corrupt Congress and a corrupt President do. In addition the Tea Party here wants to pass laws that put the whole of the US government in the wombs of every woman and in the doctor’s office. They elected the most corrupt governor ever and like all the other governors and Congress are giving huge cuts to corporations and the wealthiest here while making it up with the masses.

I am not sure if the confederation against Big Business a ploy to distract from the confederation against Big Unions because big business certainly hates unions, control our government and our CORPORATE media who is used to further their message, but for right know I will give this site the benefit of the doubt.

Like I said I would really love to find people like that and find out how they have kept the sheep in the farm. We could use some sanity when it comes to controlling the deficit and paying off our debt and yes WE CAN ARGUE ABOUT THE OTHER STUFF LATER

Mr. Morse I could not agree with you more. Check him out here

The F Word: Campaign Cash, Corruption, Corporate Power.

Just think how far we've come. Once tea partiers fought corporate power. Now they live off it. Once corruption and bribery were the Axis of Evil. Today they're Supreme Court-confirmed law. It's trust-busting that the courts can't stand. In our elections, poor people vote on rich candidates covered by even richer corporate media. Bloated on a diet of billions of dollars of anonymous campaign ads, money media are nothing but happy. What would Tom Paine say? He might say what Zephyr Teachout said. "What our country needs is less corruption and more good old fashioned bribery." At least then we could prosecute the thieves of our democracy.

“Money for bombs, not bread,” A GREAT Bipartisan Slogan.

So you think I am the only one that wants a revolution? Think again! I found this awesome website.  Hope they don't believe in copyright crap. They shouldn't because I am sending you all there! It rocks! Check it out.  but remember to come back.

We Ain’t Got Time To Bleed. It’s Time for the Revolution.

“You control our world. You’ve poisoned the air we breathe, contaminated the water we drink, and copyrighted the food we eat. We fight in your wars, die for your causes, and sacrifice our freedoms to protect you. You’ve liquidated our savings, destroyed our middle class, and used our tax dollars to bailout your unending greed. We are slaves to your corporations, zombies to your airwaves, servants to your decadence. You’ve stolen our elections, assassinated our leaders, and abolished our basic rights as human beings. You own our property, shipped away our jobs, and shredded our unions. You’ve profited off of disaster, destabilized our currencies, and raised our cost of living. You’ve monopolized our freedom, stripped away our education, and have almost extinguished our flame. We are hit…we are bleeding…but we ain’t got time to bleed. We will bring the giants to their knees and you will witness our revolution! “

Endless War and Empire: Your Tax Dollars at Work -
–  While our fiscal woes have led Congress to slash food aid this year to the world’s poor — rest assured, fellow Americans — the U.S. government will keep using your tax dollars to kill them. For while John Boehner and Barack Obama might disagree on some things, there’s one area they can agree on: War. And the need for more of it. “Money for bombs, not bread,” might be a good bipartisan slogan.
And when it comes to dropping its citizens’ tax dollars on flying killer robots and foreign military occupations, no country comes close to the United States. According to the Stockholm International Peace Research Institute ( SIPRI ), the cost of the wars in Afghanistan and Iraq — more than $150 billion in direct spending this year alone — exceeds what China, the U.S.’s closest military rival, spends altogether on its armed forces. Overall, the Obama administration will spend more than $700 billion next year on the military.That’s more than George W. Bush ever spent. And figures released this week by SIPRI show that since Obama took office, the U.S. has been almost entirely responsible for the global rise in military spending: $19.6 billion of $20.6 billion since 2008.

Ron Paul Has Some Surprising News for the Tea Party

This is old new but its worth remembering. It is just as true now as it was then. Taken from the Digital Meeting Website it is still an excellent read especially for the masses of Tea Party supporters that are being led away from the core principles of the Tea Party by corporate media and corporate funding.

Ron Paul Has Some Surprising News for the Tea Party

You’re being taken for a ride.

At least this is what many libertarians like Ron Paul believe when they see someone like Glenn Beck or Sarah Palin trying to lead the Tea Party at the “restoring honor” rally this weekend. In fact, Ron Paul believes, if you’re looking for real freedom, you should really go back to the core of the constitution and the bill of rights, which Beck and Palin do not fully endorse when you really look at their beliefs. Whether it be Palin’s support for starting more wars or Beck’s beliefs on paying the private Federal Reserve MORE interest on our money by means of a VAT tax.

Ron Paul believes in neither of the above. Here was Ron Paul’s message to the Tea Party via The New York Times just the other day:

“As many frustrated Americans who have joined the Tea Party realize, we cannot stand against big government at home while supporting it abroad. We cannot talk about fiscal responsibility while spending trillions on occupying and bullying the rest of the world. We cannot talk about the budget deficit and spiraling domestic spending without looking at the costs of maintaining an American empire of more than 700 military bases in more than 120 foreign countries. We cannot pat ourselves on the back for cutting a few thousand dollars from a nature preserve or an inner-city swimming pool at home while turning a blind eye to a Pentagon budget that nearly equals those of the rest of the world combined.”

While the Tea Party will be out supporting Glenn Beck and Sarah Palin this weekend, you wonder how many of them will be in full support of more wars and paying more interest to a group of untouchable and unauditable private bankers otherwise known as the FED? This is precisely what Ron Paul is asking the American public to consider when looking at the Tea Party leaders and see if they really stand for what they believe in.

Ron Paul believes the Tea Party is not about “left” or “right” like a lot of political pundits make it out to be. It’s about the constitution, and limited government.

Let the “Compromise Show” Begin to Pass the “2012 Oligarchy Budget From the Whores in Congress”

Author: Jeanette Borges

Congress is going to put on a show worthy of the Academy Awards over the 2012 budget. We the people should get ready for the dog and pony show that the media and the corrupt politicians in Congress that serve the highest bidder, are going to put on just for us. Get ringside seats because they are going to go all out.
Welcome to the show and here is a preview:
In the first Act there will a budget that is going to be so extreme that the other side is going to have to oppose it. That budget will be demonized because it will kill Medicare, end programs like Head Start, education grants, meals for seniors and it is an attack on the middle class. It will be so “extreme” and of course it will be blamed on the Tea Party.
The budget will give huge tax cuts to the oligarchies and the uber rich that profit from their agendas. It will continue to cuts taxes for the wealthiest and for corporations.  Of course this will reduce revenues and if you don’t raise money you have to cut spending in a time when we have huge debt, but you are not supposed to know that. You are supposed to forget Math 101.
That “extreme” budget has already been revealed. It is the Republican proposal presented by Paul Ryan and it turns Medicare into a coupon program for anyone under 54. (See Medicare Loses Out to the Wars and Tax Cuts for the Oligarchy)
In the Second Act there will be the Democrats budget. At it will be demonized by the Republicans who give lip service to the imitation Tea Party that buys their corrupt bullshit, because that budget will not cut entitlements or spending enough. That budget will be a job killer because it does not give more tax breaks to multi billion dollar oligarchies and the uber rich. It will be the job killing, more spending by those evil liberals and the Black President who was not even born here, budget.
In the background there will be the props. The staging will be quite elaborate. While all the budge is “debated” for public consumption the oligarchy media will rage a propaganda campaign on the whole of the American people that will pale in comparison to the propaganda campaigns to sell the wars on terror against Iraq, Afghanistan, Pakistan, Iran, Libya and the whole of the Middle East. It will pale in comparison to the propaganda that is selling us all that tax cuts for the rich produce jobs.
We will be given both sides on this dire and urgent situation of the debt and the deficit that we, yes we, as in we the people, face. We will all be told that Medicare and other programs are causing the deficits and the debts and oh dear something has to been done. There will be so much talk, so many experts and pundits. There will be the likes of Anderson Cooper, Bill O’Reilly, Hannity and Rachel Maddow and the liberal media and the conservative media all educating and teaching us all that the debt and deficit is about big spending on entitlements and welfare spending on people; the people that should sacrifice because we are in big trouble. Yep, more propaganda to sell that the American people should share the sacrifice to get our country out of this horrid situation.  
The propaganda campaign will decide for us all where to focus our attention and the oligarchy media will tell us what the problem is. While we are all looking where they tell us to look they will conduct polls to see how effective their propaganda is.
Sadly most people will follow the bouncing ball on Fox or MSNBC and the print media and focus their attention on where they are told to focus their attention. None of them want us to focus on the truth. They will distract you from seeing that the debt and deficit is due to the wars and that we can’t afford them. Not one of them will tell you that the United States is an oligarchy and that the budget will favor the oligarchies. Not one of them will tell you that oil companies are getting billions in subsidies and that corporate welfare in this country surpasses what we spend on other services that are provided to the people.
Not one of them will tell you that in 2000 we had a budget surplus. That surplus existed while we had Medicare, food stamps and Planned Parenthood. That surplus existed with Social Security and with Medicaid. Oh shit. How that did happen if that’s all to blame for the debt and deficit now? How could we have had a surplus when all of these things existed then?
Not one of them will tell you that surplus disappeared and turned into debt and deficit with the wars and the trillion dollar gift horse that Bush and corrupt politicians from both parties, while Republicans were in power, gave to the drug companies with the Medicare Part D prescription drug program.
While no one is telling you this you will be scared into thinking that Medicare is going to disappear, after all Medicare is to blame The people of course will not want Medicare killed and the Democrats will be the defenders of the middle class and seniors.  Our heroes! They will come to the rescue! The budget will not pass unless there is a compromise.
And there will be one hell of a compromise. Republicans will compromise on Medicare and other programs if the Democrats compromise on the tax cuts, oil company subsidies and all the other provisions that the oligarchy want. Both parties will agree to keep funding the wars. That is something they both agree on and the media is not going to make an issue of this at all. We the people will rejoice at the compromise to save Medicare and other distractions. We will buy the “compromise show” hook, line and sinkers
The “Compromise Show” will end up with the budget that should be renamed the “2012 Oligarchy Budget from the Whores in Congress”. After the “Compromise Show” Congress will pass and the President will sign the “2012 Oligarchy Budget from the Whores in Congress”.  The whores in Congress, Democrats and Republicans will come to a compromise dictated by the pimps they serve.
The oligarchy will get exactly what they want with this phony “compromise show” tailor made to fool and pacify the American people. They will have funds for their wars, subsidies for their oil, tax cuts and oh, the defunding of the agencies in charge of stopping Wall Street from fixing the price of gas, food and betting with our money and the defunding of the EPA to make sure natural gas drilling can drill toxic chemicals into our water supply. (See Gasland on HBO).  Most importantly the oligarchy will continue to get us to pay for the wars they are profiting from while the fools that are the American people think it was all about saving Medicare.
The oligarchy will have the budget from heaven and the whores in Congress will give it to them by making the masses pay for it. We will get the budget from hell.
The whores in Congress live to take from us and give to them and they will do it by giving us the “Compromise Show”.
The American people are fools and get the government they deserve, but we are waking up. Many of us see right through the collusion between both parties and the President himself.  The oligarchy owned media will go on and on, make the false arguments and the politicians will all play their parts in the “Compromise Show” to pass the “2012 Oligarchy Budget from the Whores in Congress”.
In the end, in the Final Act, the oligarchy will demand and then order, yes, order, the whores in Congress on just what the compromise will be. After all they have paid their whores and now they want their blow job. They will tell Congress exactly what to say too. They give them the PR and the talking points for the “Compromise Show”.  Hell they give them laws to pass. The media, the propaganda tool of the oligarchy will back Congress up.
In the end politicians in Congress, regardless of party, will fall to their knees and give their pimps what they planned on giving them all along. They will give them their blow job and then they will make us pay for their services.
It won’t be a compromise at all. It is a planned “Compromise Show” with a defined goal and outcome.
I am not clairvoyant, but if what I am saying here now comes true, then I hope to persuade those that believe that we have a government of, for and by the people,  that we don’t.
Corrupt politicians and for sale journalists have transformed our government into an oligarchy, a plutocracy and a corporatocracy. Their actions are treasonous. We can no longer vote for either party, because they all serve the same pimps.
The Tea Party elected Tea-ocons, who have already kneeled to serve the highest bidder, voted to fund the wars and are throwing red meat at the religious, fanatical right that want to make their religions binding to the whole of the American people. That is not small government. The liberals elected Obama who is a raging corporatist and is not powerful enough to fight the oligarchy; no President is. Republicans have elected war hawks and call themselves “conservatives” when you cannot be conservative and wage eternal wars. It’s simple math. Wars cost money and grow government drastically. You cannot be a conservative and support going to war all over the planet. The media has got “conservatives” so brainwashed that they actually forgot the definition of “conservative”. By definition Republicans who typically favor these wars are not conservative! By definition!
In the end we know that our problem is not a Democrat/liberal problem, conservative/Republican or Tea Party problem. It is a corruption problem in a country with elected leaders, on their knees giving blow jobs to an oligarchy, a ruling class. The United State has become the Land of Kings; the land of corporate Kings who own what should be a free press.
As the curtain falls on the “Compromise Show” and the audience gets the “2012 Oligarchy Budget from the Whores in Congress” it will be a good time to reflect and think about what we have just seen and what we are witnessing.
We should stop giving lip service to the Constitution and read the Declaration of Independence.
That whenever any form of government becomes destructive to these ends, it is the right of the people to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their safety and happiness. Prudence, indeed, will dictate that governments long established should not be changed for light and transient causes; and accordingly all experience hath shown that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable, than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed. But when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same object evinces a design to reduce them under absolute despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such government, and to provide new guards for their future security.”
We should not be divided by politicians or the oligarchy media who seeks to divide and conquer us and has done a very good job.
We should decide then that we the people must unite and open camp in Washington in front of Congress and sleep, eat and live there in their faces so they will know what it is to defend themselves against a revolution that wants to remove a corrupt, tyrannical and despicable Congress and the oligarchies they serve.
We get the government we deserve. We have the problem and only we can fix it. No President, no politician and no political party is able to do this. They all want the same thing: to take from us an give to them; the pimps they serve. They do not have the power to fight the oligarchy who owns the media. We the people do. We have to unite regardless of party and remove the corrupt politicians of both parties that have betrayed the people.
“it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such government, and to provide new guards for their future security.”
We need to take back a government of, for and by the people because no one is going to hand it back to us without a huge fight. Could it be that the only place the American people are willing to fight or send their loved ones to fight for this country, is on foreign soil where the oligarchy send us? Are we just lambs for lions?
“It is your right, your duty to provide new guards for our future security”. It is your obligation to fight for a government of, for and by the people.
Pass it on!

Isn’t it time you refused to be divided, suckered and pillaged by political whores regardless of political party?  It is time and it is now. Our politicians regardless of party have taken us into a fourth war against Libya and you are going to pay for that while politicians point to Social Security and school lunches to control the deficit and the debt. Are you blinded into beleiving these distractions and pointless arguments? Just how blinded are we?
Corporate media uses an invalid argument of “attacking the messenger” amongst others, (Logical Fallacies) to dismiss a valid argument. The source of information whether liberal or conservative, is not relevant as long as it accurate. Know what constitutes a valid argument and resist corporate Goebbelmedia propaganda. See An Encyclopedia of Errors of Reasoning (Logical Fallacies)
Check out the blog. Do your own homework and check out the supporting research links and then get busy. Circumvent corporate media propaganda and spin by starting your own network of news to others. I don't care how. I don't care if you use us as your source and I don't care if you copy. Check out the chain mail page for ideas. Pass it on! Be a link in a chain of real news. Be a part of it. It will make you feel alive and powerful, instead of insignificant and powerless. I promise.
Only united will we be able to stop government waste, pillaging of our money and tyrannical laws.Oh! Don’t forget to pass it on.

Medicare Loses Out to the Wars and Tax Cuts for the Oligarchy

Author: Jeanette Borges

In a budget heaven sent for the oligarchy that Congress serves, the bold 2012 federal budget proposed by House Budget Committee Chairman Paul Ryan (R-Wis.) amongst other things will turn Medicare into a coupon program.
Under the Ryan-Rivlin plan, citizens who turn 65 in 2021 or later would not enroll in the current Medicare program but instead would receive a voucher to buy private health insurance. To put it another way, there will be no Medicare, as we know it for anyone who is under 54 now. Future Medicare recipients would get fixed payments to purchase private insurance.
To put it yet another way, anyone under 54 now, in 2021, will be given a coupon to help them purchase health insurance from the private market. Ryan would replace Medicare with premium subsidies (a coupon) that seniors would use to pay off private health insurance companies rather than doctors and hospitals. And if the subsidies fail to cover health-care inflation in the future?  Too bad.
The idea, we are told, is to inject competition into the system to lower costs so says the proponents of this plan. It will indeed save billions of dollars but it will end health insurance for retirees that mostly live on Social Security and even those that have some money put away.  
An insurance policy for a middle age adult now, costs anywhere from $300.00 to $450.00 a month depending on the benefits. Those prices are sky rocketing since Romneycare on steroids, called Obamacare, passed. It can cost up to $800.00 dollars if you are on COBRA.
Can you imagine what insurance companies are going to charge for policies for those 65 years or older? Can you imagine throwing seniors into the price gouging health insurance market? Can you imagine how many pre existing conditions an insurance company can claim you have? If you are a senior you are going to have a freaking life time of pre-existing conditions.
As the propaganda rages to convince the American people that the deficits and the debt are all due to entitlements, we all need to remember that Medicare and Social Security have existed for decades. It existed when Bush Jr. took office in 2000 and was handed a budget surplus by Bill Clinton.
We cannot let this propaganda brainwash us into forgetting that there was a surplus in 2000 and then the wars and Bush’s trillion dollar prescription drug gift horse to the drug companies, called Medicare Part D, turned that surplus into a deficit.
It was the wars that continued to raise our debt then and it the wars that continue to do raise our debt now.  
Neither Ryan’s budget, nor any budget presented by Obama and the Democrats will cut off funds for these wars and they will be paid on the backs of the American people, starting with Medicare.
While we are fighting these wars, Ryan’s budget will extend all the Bush-era tax rates. The oligarchy profits from the wars but they don’t want to pay for them. Why not? We can always pillage and rape the masses with a Congress so corrupt that their sole purpose is to take from us and give to them.
