The Right has lost the intellectual leadership that the Republicans could once claim. They are now led by the intellectually challenged

"LIke all demagogues his only "reasoning" is that ONLY HE has the truth--regardless of how nothing supports his claims." -unknown


A new form of mindless madness is present in America and it is the American Right Wing's twisted vision of America. I never thought I would see other Americans rooting against a plan to create jobs and prosperity for fellow Americans in a major city. I think that the kooks on the Right Wing have become malevolent. The Zogby poll showed that 85 percent of Americans supported Chicago's bid for the Olympics, but these people are oblivious of the good that it could have done. What does it say about the Right Wing and their meanness. A meanness supported by media low lights such as Glen Beck and Rush Limbaugh who cheered the loss of the Olympics to Chicago and the defeat it caused President Obama, with no thought to the jobs it might have created.

Glen Beck and Rush Limbaugh are sick twisted veil damaged human beings. They have lost all perspective. They live in their own little manic world and have become the demagogues of the Right. They address the verbal diarrhea to mans irrational side by distortion and obscuring the truth while appealing to peoples basest prejudices'. The problem is that the Right is peopled by those who no longer think for themselves, who no longer have compassion for others and have lost their humanity.

The Right has lost the intellectual leadership that the Republicans could once claim. They are now led by the intellectually challenged. Their leaders are television and radio evangelists, and con men who pose as talk show commentators. The Republican politicians have sold out to the corporate interests that have bought them for 30 pieces of silver.

The followers of the right lack sophistication and clarity of mind, they rely on slogans, and a warped irrationality of saving America from the absurd lie about socialism. A lie that would be laughable, but considering the source, Right Wing media and corporate paid for propaganda, it is believed by the uninformed and stupid or those with a self serving interest in the falsehood, make it dangerous. These fringe lunatic Right Wingers are dangerous and the Right Wing media that panders to their fears is creating a situation that is dangerous for our country. These Right Wing media fear mongers are already culpable in the deaths of abortion doctors and attacks on gays, deaths and violence they tacitly approve of. That is not enough for these mutants they want more and they would dance with joy if there were a successful physical attack on our president.

There is an anti intellectual movement in America. The movement views people that can clearly state the issues and speak to the facts with insight as someone to be attacked. For the first time in eight years we have a president with intelligence, a president that is respected around the world, and that hasn't happened in a long time, a president who gives hope to the world that America can be again the beacon of hope to a world beset with problems, fears and dangers. Those on the Right will never realize what they have and when and if they ever do it may be to late.

350


From www.350.org


"What does the number 350 mean?


350 is the most important number in the world--it's what scientists say is the safe upper limit for carbon dioxide in the atmosphere.


Two years ago, after leading climatologists observed rapid ice melt in the Arctic and other frightening signs of climate change, they issued a series of studies showing that the planet faced both human and natural disaster if atmospheric concentrations of CO2 remained above 350 parts per million.


Everyone from Al Gore to the U.N.’s top climate scientist has now embraced this goal as necessary for stabilizing the planet and preventing complete disaster. Now the trick is getting our leaders to pay attention and craft policies that will put the world on track to get to 350.

Is 350 scientifically possible?


Right now, mostly because we’ve burned so much fossil fuel, the atmospheric concentration of co2 is 390 ppm—that’s way too high, and it’s why ice is melting, drought is spreading, forests are dying. To bring that number down, the first task is to stop putting more carbon into the atmosphere. That means a very fast transition to sun and wind and other renewable forms of power. If we can stop pouring more carbon into the atmosphere, then forests and oceans will slowly suck some of it out of the air and return us to safe levels.

Is 350 politically possible?


It’s very hard. It means switching off fossil fuel much more quickly than governments and corporations have been planning. Our best chance to speed up that process will come in December in Copenhagen, when the world’s nations meet to agree on a new climate treaty. Right now, they’re not planning to do enough. But we can change that--if we mobilize the world to swift and bold climate action, which is what we're planning to do on October 24th."

Testicles should not be over rated

"Obama believes the Republican Party is a party when in fact it's a mindset, like Hitler Youth, based on hatred - religious hatred, racial hatred. When you foreigners hear the word ‘conservative' you think of kindly old men hunting foxes. They're not, they're fascists." -Gore Vidal



Finally a Democrat with testicles, Rep. Alan Grayson (D.Fl). Grayson takes on the Republicans with some of their own medicine. He refers to them as "knuckle dragging Neanderthals that understand nothing". He is great and he's really got under their skin. The Republicans lie, distort the truth, pander to the health insurance industry and when they are finally called on it they go apoplectic. Before Rep. Grayson apologizes, the Republicans need to apologies for all their lies and their indifference to the plight of poor and uninsured Americans. The rest of the Democrats need to see the example set by Grayson and attack the Republicans for the lying hypocrites that they are.

An interview of Gore Vidal in, CommonDreams.org, revealed that 83 year old Vidal has lost none of his sting and understanding of what America has lost. His comments about Bush is summed up by his statement, "Remember the coup d'etat of 2000 when the Supreme Court fixed the selection, not election, of the stupidest man in the country, Mr Bush." and he has a depressing opinion about the American people, 'America has "no intellectual class" and is "rotting away at a funereal pace. We'll have a military dictatorship fairly soon'. Of Republicans he says,"Obama believes the Republican Party is a party when in fact it's a mindset, like Hitler Youth, based on hatred - religious hatred, racial hatred. When you foreigners hear the word ‘conservative' you think of kindly old men hunting foxes. They're not, they're fascists." While always controversial Vidal's insight is born of a lifetime of intellectual examination and an understanding of the the American condition. More...

Sen. Vitter (R-LA) confessed to involvement in a prostitution ring. Soliciting for prostitution is a crime, but the hypocrite Vitter has taken the lead in attacking Acorn for aiding a prostitution scam. Why is Acorn being attacked? Some of their counselors made poor decisions. But unlike Black Water they didn't kill innocent civilians. They fight for a fair living wage for the poor. They enroll people to vote, the poor and minorities such as The colored people, oh my. The colored people and the poor are not the favorite people of the Republicans. So Acorn is an easy target. Sen. Vitter is a criminal masquerading as a lawyer and U.S. Senator and he should be on trial for soliciting for prostitution. He is a criminal and a hypocrite who belongs behind bars. He has disgraced his family and his office.

Beck repeatedly gets basic facts wrong despite boasting that "some of the biggest minds in America" do his research

Without a public Option it is a waste of a trillion dollars of public money that will be given to the health insurance companies

"Years ago on the House floor on a foreign aid debate, I called the members of the House of Representatives a bunch of political prostitutes," he said. "They demanded my words be stricken. They jumped up like 100 TV evangelists..." "...I want to apologize to all the hookers in America for having associated them with the United States House of Representatives," -Former Rep. Jim Traficant (D-Ohio)

Surprise, the Health Bill proposed by the Democrats does not include a public option. It is a disgusting affront and betrayed of the electorate. Howard Dean said that, 'without a public Option it is a waste of a trillion dollars of public money that will be given to the health insurance companies.'
Democrats you were elected by the people to serve the people not the health insurance corporations, that is the job of the Republicans. You are expected to answer to your constituents not to the corporations, that is also the job of the Republicans. What don't you understand about this? The Republicans have always catered to the corporate entity at the expense of the American people, but now you, the Democrats are doing the same thing.
Sen. Baucus who has been bought and paid for by the Health Insurance Companies has sold his soul and his good offices to the corporate interest of the health insurance industry for little more that three point nine million dollars. They bought him cheap!
Those in whom we put our trust should serve the interests of the people who put them in office, not corporate lobbyist representing the health insurance industry. We know Baucus and Snow can't be trusted to be honest brokers, but can Harry Reid be trusted? I think not. It seems again that the Democrats have lost their courage and are capitulating to the Health Insurance Industry. If the Democrats fail they do not deserve to hold office and they deserve to be swept out of office. Over sixty five percent of the people across America want a public option and they have long memories and those that betray them will feel their power when the people go to the polls. If the Democrats in congress are going to act like Republicans lets elect Republicans so that they can screw up the country like they did under Bush and then elect a new wave of Democrats, hopefully with spines, to fix it. It may take six more years before we get it right but the people will eventually be served. As Jim Traficiant said of the congress, "Years ago on the House floor on a foreign aid debate, I called the members of the House of Representatives a bunch of political prostitutes," he said. "They demanded my words be stricken. They jumped up like 100 TV evangelists..." "...I want to apologize to all the hookers in America for having associated them with the United States House of Representatives," he continued. "Yeah, I think it is a big whorehouse...” -Former Rep. Jim Traficant (D-Ohio) He's not far from the truth.

Science and Environment

The UN Climate Change Conference in December will try to reach an international deal on cutting carbon emissions so global warming stays below an increase of 2C (3.6F) above pre-industrial levels.
Prof Schellnhuber, the director of the Potsdam Institute for Climate Change, said the chance of getting such a deal was "pie in the sky" because rich countries like America are unwilling to sign up to ambitious enough targets."
"In a sense the US is climate illiterate. If you look at global polls about what the public knows about climate change even in Brazil, China you have more people who know about the problem and think deep cuts in emissions are needed," he said.
"Prof Schellnhuber, who has played a key role in waking the world up to climate change through his work advising the German government, described the Copenhagen conference as 'the most important meeting in the history of the human species'."
