Pucker Up!

Do you have an adjustable rate mortgage? Are you planning on buying a house? Do you have credit card debt? Are you planning on buying a car in the near future? If you answered "Yes" to any of these questions you are completely screwed. Because the Republicans in the House and Senate hate Barack Obama and the Democrats so much and want to regain power so badly they are purposely tanking ecomony hoping that the American public is too stupid and uninformed to see that this whole Debt-Ceiling mess is their fault and blame the President for all of our economic woes.

Fact 1: Mitch McConnell, Senate Republican leader said that his primary objective is to "make Obama a one-term president". Mind you... not job creation or deficit reduction. Ruining the President of the United States. 
Fact 2: The Republicans need cover for the disastrous vote on the Ryan Budget Plan that eviscerates Medicare and Medicaid as well as Social Security, all things that Republicans have been trying to do away with since their inception. 
Fact 3: President Obama has given the Republicans everything they have asked for in these debt negotiations. Raising the debt ceiling while offsetting the raise by an equal amount of cuts and no revenue increases (Harry Reid's plan) that would close corporate tax loopholes that provide the richest Americans a lower tax rate than I have. The only condition the President has is that the debt ceiling be raised until after the elections in 2012 so that there will be no political maneuvering on something so important to the financial stability of the government and that the financial markets won't be subjected to this spectacle in six-nine months. 

And yet they still say no. So you people out there who say that Washington is broken and that both parties are to blame I say look at your financial statements after the Republicans force a default on the debt. Watch your interest rates skyrocket. The Republicans got us into this mess with tax cuts during war time, off-the-books wars, unfunded Medicare benefits and Wall Street bailouts, and they want us to trust them with our financial security? Are they fucking nuts? The answer is a resounding "YES!!"

Now, I've been quiet for a while. I've had a lot on my plate lately so I haven't been giving up any of my personal opinions on so many topics, but I have to say something about this. My emphasis:

Arkansas High School Appoints Co-Valedictorian Because Top Student Was African American

A high school student in Arkansas was blocked from receiving sole valedictorian honors this summer, despite earning the highest G.P.A. in her class and receiving only a single B in her four years at McGehee Secondary School. Kymberly Wimberly’s offense? She’s black. School administrators worried that Wimberly’s accomplishment would result in a “big mess” at the majority-white school, so Principal Darrell Thompson told the student’s mother “that he decided to name a white student as co-valedictorian,” even though the white student had a lower G.P.A. The matter is currently pending in federal court.

I am so friggin' sick of the disgusting way that the a$$h@les in places like Arkansas, Alabama, Mississippi, etc. (you figure out what I am driving at) treat people of color and other minorities. Here is a girl who killed herself studying, paying attention and working hard to get ahead and it is all for nothing because some cracker feels that giving the valedictorian designation to a black girl in Arkansas might make some racist bigot unhappy. Is there anyone out there who wonders why people in other countries have such an hideously ugly picture of Americans when they see something like this. I am deeply appalled by this. So should you be too. 

Unfortunately it is too late for this girl to receive the honor she so richly deserves because this is now before the Federal courts and hopefully there will be enough people of honor and dignity on the bench to give this girl what she should receive... the balls of the school's administrators on a platter full of cash.  

The people of Arkansas should be ashamed of themselves... all of them!
