YOU GET YOUR ASS UP IN FRONT OF A CAMERA AND SPEAK TO THE NATION AND SEE IF YOU DON'T GET COTTON-MOUTH!!
Just like the dolts underneath drink water:
What is this the president's drinking? GASP!! WATER???
What is this douche-canoe drinking? GASP!! WATER???
what's that next to Hilary? GASP! WATER???
I get really tired of the media finding one little thing (like taking a drink of water during a speech) and making it into a federal fucking offense! I think it purposefully detracts from the real message being sent and for the most part, I agreed with Marco Rubio on what he said - for the most part.
If people want to nit-pick and find something wrong with his speech so they can rip him apart in the media and amongst their closest family and friends, then behold: I give you great tidings of things to consider when listening to Marco Rubio:
When Marco talks about the federal government needing to provide incentives to local school districts to offer more AP courses, we must first get the government OUT of the school systems altogether so that we can HAVE students that can actually BE in AP classes. Look at California, for example. They have decided that they will no longer require 8th graders to take ALGEBRA!
I can't believe California is dropping a basic math course for 8th graders that has been taught for decades and has been a requirement to pass the 8th grade in many states! California is so inept in education it's pathetic. Why? Because state and federal governments have picked apart the entire school system and it was done so by the liberal coo-coos that run the place. Disgusting! They have allowed the kids to be dumbed down so much that they aren't even making them take a math course. They teach English as a second language in schools instead of mandating that it be the first language since it is an American state. Regardless of the majority ethnicity of the state, it is still an American state in this country that speaks English. This is another consequence of not having immigrants assimilate to our system. So no, we don't need government intervening any more than they already do. They need to get the hell out of OUR way and let communities decide on a local level how to educate our children. Did I mention Eric Holder would like to ban homeschooling altogether? That's another story for another day.
This is, again, the reason college tuition has gotten so out of control as well. Colleges are forced to educate people that either cannot afford college or are of a minority race and they are forced to teach to a certain curriculum or the colleges don't get their federal dollars. If they don't have federal dollars, how are they going to pay to educate their students? This is just my take on it - I don't really know why college tuition is so high (unless it has something to do with the sports aspect of it - you know, football and basketball and baseball) and it doesn't make sense to me that the cost is skyrocketing. I know that because a lot of people are unable to make their financial aid payments, schools are missing out on getting paid back. I wonder why that is...hmm...... ( sarcasm)!
Anyway, let's now talk about Marco Rubio's comment about his student loans. First he said he wouldn't have been able to go to college without federal aid so we must, MUST, have more federal aid! Why? Why not hold people accountable for the majors they choose? Why would you spend $90k for a master's degree when the highest earnings you can make in your chosen field is about $60k a year? To me, that is just stupid. If you are going to educate yourself to the tune of $100k, MARCO, you better make sure you can make enough in your career to be able to pay it off. But then you got elected to a senate seat and began making $178k per year, courtesy of yours truly and the rest of the American taxpayers, and was able to pay off your loans. You're welcome, douche-bag! <eyeroll> A thank you or a shout out would have been nice, btw. My question is this: if you had federal financial aid and still owed $100k in student loans, what was the benefit of taking out the loan in the first place?!?! What were you going for? Crazy......I digress.
Marco said: "Republicans have offered a detailed and credible plan that helps save Medicare without hurting today’s retirees." Marco, not one republican laid out a plan to save anything - they laid out a plan that kicks the problem down the road and didn't even balance the budget for 30 years! Yeah! The Ryan Plan. No thanks. Another falsehood.
Marco said: "On foreign policy, America continues to be indispensable to the goal of global liberty, prosperity and safeguarding human rights. The world is a better place when America is the strongest nation on earth. But we can’t remain powerful if we don’t have an economy that can afford it." Marco, the only foreign policy we need at this point is this: PULL OUT! We don't NEED to be indispensable anymore. We don't NEED to be all over the world. Unless people are asking us to liberate them - and I don't hear ANYONE asking - we don't need to be stomping into places like Mali or Syria or Libya and using our drones and bombs and guns to "protect our interests" that aren't even over there to begin with. Our interests that need protecting right now are our men and women in uniform that are being sent to their deaths either chasing a ghost or arming the enemy. Screw that!
One more thing: After Marco Rubio signed his name to the NDAA, he lost all credibility as an American concerned with our liberty and our sovereignty. At least he did with me. Sad....he had such promise.
So let's move on to OBAMA and his SOTU: This man told 9 lies in under two minutes!!! They are:
1) Over the last few years, both parties have worked together to reduce the deficit by more than $2.5 trillion – mostly through spending cuts, but also by raising tax rates on the wealthiest 1 percent of Americans. As a result, we are more than halfway towards the goal of $4 trillion in deficit reduction
HE ADDED 6 TRILLION TO THE DEFICIT!
2)Tonight, thanks to the grit and determination of the American people, there is much progress to report. After a decade of grinding war, our brave men and women in uniform are coming home.
AGAIN, LIE!! WE'RE SENDING TROOPS TO MALI NOW! WE'RE STILL IN SYRIA, STILL IN LIBYA AND AFGHANISTAN (FOR TEN MORE YEARS) AND IRAQ. LIES! ALL LIES!
3) After years of grueling recession, our businesses have created over six million new jobs
REALLY? 6 MILLION NEW JOBS? SO WE LOST 4 MILLION WHEN YOU TOOK OFFICE THE FIRST TIME BUT NOW YOU'RE SAYING WE'VE CREATED 6 MILLION MORE? SO THERE SHOULDN'T BE AN UNEMPLOYMENT ISSUE, THEN, RIGHT? AND NO MORE FOOD STAMPS SHOULD BE NEWLY ISSUED, RIGHT? AND WE SHOULD HAVE FEWER THAN 49% RECEIVING WELFARE, RIGHT? LYING ^@$@##$ LIAR!
4) We buy more American cars than we have in five years
LOAD OF CRAPT - HE TOOK GM AND RAN IT INTO THE GROUND AND SOLD HALF OF IT TO FIAT AND THE OTHER HALF TO THE UNIONS. THEY LOSE BILLIONS EVERY YEAR BECAUSE NO ONE BUYS THEM. JEEP WENT TO CHINA FOR PRODUCTION AND FORD IS REALLY THE ONLY AMERICAN CAR LEFT, THAT I KNOW OF, THAT'S BEING BUILT AND SOLD HERE IN AMERICA AND AMERICAN OWNED!
5) (in the same breath as #4): We buy less foreign oil than we have in twenty years.
LIES, LIES, LIES! HE SHUT DOWN ALL DOMESTIC DRILLING IN THE COUNTRY AND OFF THE COAST TO US DRILLING COMPANIES AND LET RUSSIA, CHINA AND BRAZIL( I THINK) COME INTO THE GULF AND OFF THE COAST OF THE ATLANTIC SEABOARD TO DRILL IN OUR WATERS. WE IMPORT FROM SAUDI ARABIA AND VENEZUELA. WE JUST DON'T IMPORT AS MUCH WHICH IS WHY IT'S SO DAMN EXPENSIVE TO FILL YOUR TANK - PART OF THE PLAN TO GET US TO $9 A GALLON AND MAKE US LIKE IT!
6) Our housing market is healing
UM, IN LA-LA-LAND, MAYBE. LAST I LOOKED, FANNIE MAE AND FREDDIE MAC WERE STILL SOAKING US FOR BILLIONS EVERY QUARTER, THE GOVERNMENT IS STILL ALLOWING ZERO DOWN LOANS AND FEDERAL "ASSISTANCE" FOR MORTGAGES - HOUSES ARE STILL AT A 30% LOSS IN VALUE AND PEOPLE ARE LOSING THEIR HOMES JUST AS FAST AS THEY WERE BEFORE.
7) consumers, patients, and homeowners enjoy stronger protections than ever before.
STRONGER PROTECTIONS FROM WHAT? MORE GOVERNMENT PROGRAMS DESIGNED TO FILL THE POCKETS OF SPECIAL INTEREST GROUPS, BANKS AND POLITICIANS? WE ARE MORE AT RISK THAN EVER BEFORE. CONSUMERS ARE AT RISK FOR THE DE-VALUING OF THE DOLLAR, PATIENTS ARE MORE AT RISK BECAUSE OF THE COST OF OBAMACARE AND HOMEOWNERS ARE STILL LOSING HOME VALUES AND EVEN THEIR HOMES BECAUSE OF BAD GOVERNMENT PROGRAMS AND A HORRIBLE ECONOMY!
8) Together, we have cleared away the rubble of crisis, and can say with renewed confidence that the state of our union is stronger.
ARE YOU FREAKING KIDDING ME?? OUR UNION IS STRONGER? WE ARE IN DEBT TO THE TUNE OF $17 TRILLION DOLLARS! WE HAVE BEEN TAXED TO THE EYEBROWS, WE ARE BANKRUPT, OUR BILL OF RIGHTS IS UNDER ATTACK, WE HAVE FEWER JOBS AND MORE PROBLEMS THAN EVER BEFORE. GAS PRICES, FOOD PRICES, COST OF LIVING HAS INCREASED, THE DOLLAR IS ALMOST DEAD, THE CONSTITUTION IS BEING VIOLATED AT EVERY SINGLE TURN, THE WARS ARE KILLING OUR LOVED ONES AND PUTTING US FURTHER INTO DEBT, CHINA'S THE NEW ECONOMIC LEADER AND THE ADMINISTRATION HAS SUCCESSFULLY DIVIDED THIS COUNTRY IN SO MANY WAYS IT WILL TAKE DECADES TO RECOVER AND YOU CALL OUR UNION STRONG? YOU'RE STILL DOING DOPE, AREN'T YOU?!?
9) Corporate profits have rocketed to all-time highs – but for more than a decade, wages and incomes have barely budged
SMH......CORPORATE PROFITS ARE NOT AT ALL TIME HIGHS OR ELSE PEOPLE WOULD BE ABLE TO FIND A JOB WITH DECENT WAGES AND BENEFITS. YOUR REGULATIONS AND LEGISLATION TOOK CARE OF ANYONE BEING ABLE TO PROFIT FROM ANYTHING.
This was all said within 2 minutes and I had to turn it off. I personally hate to vomit more than death itself and last night I was purging! I honestly don't know what planet this man is living on if he truly believes what he's saying. I am of the opinion that he knows exactly what's going on and he's doing it on purpose. He can't get the votes to do it so he illegally passes legislation in the form of executive order - something SOMEONE is going to have to put a stop to immediately. Ted Nugent is right! The republicans have lost their balls and it's sickening. But the republicans in the Senate are on the take just as much as the dems are. It's a never-ending circle and I'm sick of it. Sick, sick, sick! Rand Paul was the ONLY rebuttal that touched on the real problems and the real solutions. I'm not just saying that because he's Ron's son, I'm saying that because I truly believe in everything he said in his response to the SOTU address. I truly believe that his father educated him well and he knows what's going on and how to fix it. Here is Rand's response. Tell me he doesn't make the most sense out of all of them.
This man gets it - he cares - he wants to make a difference. A REAL difference! He will have a plan to balance the budget in 5 years! 5!!! Not 30, not 20, not 10 but 5 years! Let's get that under control right after restoring our Bill of Rights and then we can address everything else. These two things, the Bill of Rights and a balanced budget, are the two things that are make or break.
I hope you will join your local liberty/tea party/grassroots clubs and get involved. Run for office, any office and work the principals of liberty back into the communities, the schools, the counties and states. Do something for God's sake. For the country's sake!
Stepping down off my soapbox......until the next time I get pissed off!
