F**k the Car Shield advertisement saying, “country is heading in wrong direction.” Go to hell, Car Shield because the country is NOT heading in the wrong direction, unless you count the increased homelessness due to shutting down long-term investments in savings and home mortgages, homeowner insurance increases in Florida beyond belief, deregulation, ripping off of employee pensions by CEOs and Republicans who stole the money to fund their 1000% increase in their revenues, and supply-side economics which has caused centralized control of business to the tune of destruction of small business, the fact the longevity of life in America has decreased below the Canadian model with its single-payer universal healthcare plan, Americans pay some three times as much as Canadians for healthcare and into the corrupt big pharma and health insurance businesses, destruction of FS&Ls and replaced with credit cards controlled by banks at the detriment of consumers (when someone cancels a credit card, they get their FICO score lowered), and………
All of this stuff began with Reagan who claimed “government is the problem.” So, if we think “we are on the wrong path,” then go to hell if you think that overturning what Reagan did to this nation.
Fact. A diabetes med in the 1960s was deemed to cause heart attacks. In the 1970s OUR GOVERNMENT, under FDA, advised doctors NOT to prescribe it. That was a good thing, but had no “teeth.” Doctors did not stop.
As a result, it caused the deaths of many Americans until, finally, in 1984 the FDA took it off the market. Yes,
In his 1981 inaugural address, Reagan claimed the government was the problem. Why? Perhaps because REPUBLICAN Nixon did not put teeth into enforcement towards limiting a prescription?
Take a larger look at this. It was Republican Nixon who was head of the government when the FDA did the “suggested” limited use of the med. Furthermore, it was Southern Dixie white supremacist Jesse Helms who also blocked Nixon from creating rehab centers for those on illicit drugs and stop the war on drugs. Racist bigot Helms was the bastard who blocked Nixon’s efforts to create small black businesses in North Carolina. It was Dixie white racist Helms who maneuvered to get the original Star Trek series cancelled due to a Martin Luther King Jr. approved inter-racial kiss (it put William Shatner on the street living out of a pickup truck). If anything, America applauded when Jimmy Carter and the Democrats took control in 1976 and all of a sudden Star Trek came back in movies and with The Wrath of Khan.
Mr Sleepy Ronnie in the Cabinet, WHO REALLY WAS THE PROBLEM? Sleepy Ronnie in the Cabinet worked to bring more and more white supremacist Dixie bigots into the Republican Party, plus to pave the road for fascist bigots with lots of money, like Rick the Prick Scott, Ron DeSantis, Mitch McConell, Matt Gaetz, Marjorie what’s her name, and others (as well as the Koch brothers) INTO the control of the Republican Party (Trump, too).
Now we have to listen to the bullshit of a commercial which says nothing about how we got to this point. The advertisement merely implies, by saying we NEED to make a better path in the USA, sound as if President Biden and the Democrats are at fault, not Sleepy Ronnie in the Cabinet and the Republican bigots with their “anything goes” friends like Rand Paul among the anarchists we like to call libertarians who likely do nothing to speak in favor of socially progressive ideas and push for centrally-controlled business-controlled nationalized business corporations which end up being nothing more than like a government-controlled centralized economic organization with communes.
These Car Shield commercials push panic buttons for a purpose. To help Republican leaders take over the government and shove down the throats Car Shield (and Chick-Fil-A) for putting hatred into the control of our society, whether that hatred be puritanical bastards who are against black people or gay people. There was a day when Americans could afford small business services called auto mechanics. Today, we are forced into nationalized companies like Car Shield. So, therefore, Car Shield has to defend its business with panic-button commercials such as those I heard this morning.
Goddamn it, I lived during a time when there was an oil embargo, gas prices soared and we worked to get around it, rather than blame Nixon and the Republicans. We developed car-pooling and other means to get around the high oil prices. Sad to say, but in those years, big corporate giant, GM, put a startup electric car business in Cortland, NY, out of business. That was bullshit on the part of GM. But somehow we did get by. We also had people who had been born in the late 1800s who did not like food stamps. Rather than use food stamps, they would consume only Quaker Oats oatmeal or even cat food. I took one woman to lunch various days at Phil’s Chicken House, a chicken in the Binghamton area which was a successful alternative to big corporate nationalized Kentucky-based KFC. The chicken was also from a mainstay in Upstate NY cooking, used at church and fireman’s days picnics. The recipe came from Cornell University. Most importantly, during the embargo, when my transmission went on my used car, my father could afford to find another one and get it replaced, by local mechanics. He did not have to rely on a big nationalized business like Car Shield. Car Shield takes advantage of big nationalized corporate business. It should NOT be allowed to put commercials on television which push the panic button to sell their services.
The reasonCar Shield (or even Chick-Fil-A) imply the Democrats are at fault is because they know that Joe Biden wishes to re-regulate big nationalized businesses and has made it known. Companies like Car Shield, Google, Microsoft, Spectrum, and others are all cowards running scared of the results. Car Shield gives fake panic buttons to Americans. Wrong. Chick-Fil-A bumps up its commercials because they are anti-gay and think the only way to have a successful family is to be heterosexual. Goddamn Chick-Fil-A for promoting that and not saying this in THEIR commercials. Let me tell you how a heterosexual marriage helped to destroy the idea of a family. Go to hell with traditionalist freaking lousy puritanical thoughts. People who say, “we don’t like it if there is someone somewhere having fun and happiness in life, unless they follow their dictatorial ways of a hateful god.
All of this needs to be stopped, as bullshit artists screw to the American public. It is called moderate, not in terms of politics, but in MODERATING what is being presented. This idea is not an idea to push censorship.
The government is not the problem. In fact, in order to protect voting rights, civil rights, human rights, the government plays an important role. Case in point, the diabetes medication which statistics demonstrated the number of deaths due to heart attacks. These panic-button-pushing commercials imply that the government run by Democrats is a problem while Republicans are above the law and are not the problem. Human rights. Human justice. It’s not politics, stupid.
There is a travel show which quotes Mark Twain. The quote is related to what I am saying.
“Travel is fatal to prejudice, bigotry, and narrow-mindedness, and many of our people need it sorely on these accounts. Broad, wholesome, charitable views of men and things cannot be acquired by vegetating in one little corner of the earth all one’s lifetime.”
Thank you, Nancy Pelosi
Nancy Pelosi was correct in her statements about Google monopoly. Any company like Google which makes the consumers on the demand side of the market feel helpless by changing settings without the permission of the person who owns the computer is in violation of that person’s right to run the computer as the person sees fit to do. What is worse is the way the installation of an app on a person’s computer is hidden so one cannot remove such a Google app. Go to uninstall and try to do an uninstall of Google Drive. What is the message? “Program is still active so cannot be uninstalled.” ACTIVE? WHERE? Try to find where it is active. All designed to confuse the consumer in the same way as Trump snippets and other crap from Repugnican hateful liars, slanderers, or those who use baseball bats against human beings, like the Mafia, in order to scare people into submission. If one is not a wimp, as are some in the Democratic and Republican Parties (remain nameless), then you are safe. Otherwise they fear those who stand up for what is right, like Nancy Pelosi, and dredge up lies and baseball bats to try to win – as with Machiavellian theory – the ends justifies the means. That means, it matters not how vicious, vengeful, and barbaric Repugnicans can be, the end justifies the means.
I am a Lincoln Republican who got sick of the Repugnican Party of Florida. I am a proud Yankee who is sick and tired of Repugnicans and their lies, slander and libel which is used with snippets on Facebook or Twitter to attack those who take a stand for the people. I take a stand for WE THE PEOPLE. I believe in what Thomas Jefferson wrote, “all men are created equal.” Except I put that in the context of the 21st Century and say, “all human beings are created equal.” Thomas Jefferson got a fight in the 18th Century in trying to put it that way. Where did the trouble derive? From Dixie states of Georgia and the Carolinas where the white male bastards were fearful of what it meant to be equal to others. Sad to say. But by building up Dixie over the past 50 to 60 years, America is heading back in the same direction of what Thomas Jefferson faced in the 18th Century.
Repeat. I am in favor of WE THE PEOPLE, the first three words of the U.S. Constitution. I am in favor of the statement, “all human beings are created equal.” And to take it one step further and be real blunt. If an older woman is raped (see Stanley Kubrik’s A Clockwork Orange) and ends up pregnant, the life of the fetus is NOT MORE IMPORTANT than the life of an older woman. Medical science can prove the risks to an older woman’s LIFE due to a pregnancy at an older age. This example points out a life and death circumstance for older women.
But it applies to any woman because their life CAN be threatened, especially under any circumstances.
In my mind, there is a fine line when considering no threat to the woman and no rape. In this case, there are more PROACTIVE choices for contraception and abortion becomes a reactionary choice.
An interesting point. The ones who support reproductive rights are considered liberal or progressive (socially progressive as we were called when I was a Republican). That is also referred to as being proactive or, as taught in the Boy Scouts, “be prepared.” Abortion as a contraceptive choice is reactionary, not progressive and proactive. Who are the ones opposed to abortion? Those who love being reactionary. Abortion as a contraception choice is reactionary, not proactive. No consistency which can create something called, “common sense.”
Makes me wonder whether it is the reactionary ones, opposed to abortions, who are secretly obtaining abortions. Possibility because I recall Roman Catholics who claimed to oppose contraception but used them anyway. We were told to keep that information”a secret.” “Keep it a secret when some Roman Catholic guy had a vasectomy.”
Jesus Christ called such people hypocrites. So, we have five Roman Catholics on the SCOTUS. I can stereotype them as all being hypocrites. Should I? Most were placed there by Repugnicans, with the help of big business PACs who put money before the interests of the people of America. We the people, in order to form a more perfect union… All human beings are created equal.
And the love of money is evil and usually behind the promotion of waging war. Putin, an atheist, uses the Russian Orthodox Church to promote his war. Cannot criticize the Russians without pointing out how much Repugnicans in America use Christian churches to promote war among our own people. Or. To point out how Texas oil men used money as the basis for sending Americans to Vietnam in the 1960s.
We the people and we are all created equal. The foundation of America. Go ahead. Hate what I say. Or perhaps hate ME because I say it. If it bothers you when I say this, perhaps it is because you just want to have fun in life and what I say might interrupt your fun? Your life of putting a foto of the food you ate last night on Facebook. Just what we love to see, right? But hey, it’s fun!
And when such hate permeates America to such a large degree, what will America get? Something better? ‘Splain it to me, please.
Thank you, Nancy Pelosi, for your service to we the people, all created equal as children of God. Thank you, Nancy Pelosi for not being a Democratic Party wimp who turns over and plays “dead.” Sorry there are so many Repugnicans in America who are afraid of people who promote “we the people” and that all human beings are created equal, the foundation of America. My ancestors who were wealthy in America and helped build this nation (not avoid paying taxes), lived and died for this nation, would be pleased.
