Hello And Goodbye To Our Future
What complete bullshit. Obama's war on religion? Can't pray? This is exactly why Republicans get no respect from me at the moment. (There was a time...) It's sinking to a level of fomenting hatred and resentment based on nothing but the knowledge that there are a lot of Christians out there who like to feel victimized; particularly when asked to have a little tolerance of others.
He won't win, but it's still despicable that this is how he thinks he might. Newt and Mitt will say the same things, of course. And, like Perry, Newt actually believes it. (Mitt will say any damn thing to get elected, so it's a distinction without a difference.)
Meanwhile, Senate Republicans filibustered Obama's nominee for the consumer protection agency, who only got a 53 - 45 vote. And then they did the same to a compromise on the payroll tax cut; they'll raise taxes on workers but never on higher earners. How can you not look at those guys and mourn for our country? They have only two things on their hive-mind: defeat Obama and refuse to help anyone but their wealthy supporters. And they don't even bother to pretend they give a shit about the country.
And, by golly, they've just kiboshed a bill designed to prevent legislators from insider trading base on info they get in closed meetings.
Horrible, horrible people.
