A post election memo from an angry and frustrated liberal Democrat
Louisiana Weekly ^ | David C. Bellinger

Posted on 11/22/2002 9:59:40 AM PST by New Revolution

As an American citizen and a liberal Democrat I feel as though I have been kicked in my political gut and left breathless as a result of Tuesday's election.

How President Bush could possibly campaign on making the tax cuts permanent and repealing the so called "death" tax to the detriment of the Social Security (which he promised not to touch) and Medicare trust funds and to the benefit to tax payers earning over $350,000 (the "truly" rich and greedy) while the deficits will stretch from here to the moon and beyond and will add billions and billions of dollars in interest payments to the budget for many, many decades to come (a ticking fiscal thermonuclear reaction waiting to happen), appointing reactionary conservative judges to the federal bench, with the rubber stamp approval of the Republican Senate, which appointments will be making critical decisions thirty years from now, a prescription drug plan formulated by the pharisaical industry, no rational plan for relief from skyrocketing health care cost and, to "add" insult to injury, presiding as President over current "cuts" to Medicare, advocating nothing that I know of regarding a patients bill of rights, and given the abysmal performance of the economy and financial markets, etc. and pick up seats in the House and Senate is far, far beyond my political comprehension! How the American people from Colorado to Minnesota to Missouri to Georgia (and I am very much afraid that Sen. Landrieu might lose to Election Commissioner Terrell (a real political airhead if I have ever seen one) in a Dec. 7 runoff in Louisiana) could make and endorsement of President Bush's politics is nothing "short" of political mind "boggling" insanity!!!

Furthermore, now that the Republicans have the power and the authority to carry out and go forth with their agenda; that is, if the Democrats don't "liberally" evoke their ability to filibuster in the Senate, maybe the country will receive a "major" wake up call when, for example, Justice Sandra Day O'Connor retires, which I predict she will do when this current session of the U. S. Supreme Court ends in July, and President Bush appoints another Scalia or Thomas to the court in order to repay his political debt to the religious right, just as he said he would like to do during the 2000 campaign, which means the Roe V. Wade decision is toast and when overturned women will be forced to seek out back alley abortions and add to the 80,000 women who already die annually as a result of living in nations where abortions are banned!!!! In addition, as a result of Tuesday's election President Bush's disastrous environmental decisions and energy policies will become more and more a part of our every day lives!!! And can catsup as a vegetable, winnable nuclear war, recallable nuclear missiles, Elliot Abrams lying to Congress, trees that cause pollution, red baiting the anti-missile program detractors, tax credits and/or exemptions for segregated schools, homeless by choice, falling wages, even higher and then even still higher unemployment rates, Dow-Jones down 22.3% in one day, another HUD scandal, U. S. Information Agency blacklisting of liberal speakers, attacks on OSHA and workplace safety, invading a Caribbean island, assassination manuals, White House astrologer, mining harbors in Venezuela, another S. & L. scandal, another Beirut barracks tragedy, Al Haig in control, silence on AIDS, food stamp reductions, White House shredding of documents, more and more and more tax cuts for the wealthy, no increase in minimum wage, mistakes were made, White House chief of staff convicted for influence pedaling and uses alcoholism as a defense, you don't have to many suspects innocent of a crime, not all people standing in soup lines are really hungry, women don't understand throw-weights, education cuts, the bombing begins in five minutes, $640 Pentagon toilet seats, African-American judicial appointments 1.9%, C. I. A. sponsoring car bombings killing innocent civilians, 139 administration officials either being investigated, indicted, or convicted, selling arms for profit to a terrorist nation, 3x5 cards, flowers being placed on Nazi graves, White House naps, raping valuable national resources as payback for political contributions, presidential pardons for indicted administration officials before turning state's evidence, using spies to spy on American citizens, selling biological and chemical agents to merciless dictators, etc. be far behind!!!!!

What a nightmarish scenario!!!

And I will never understand what or how the American people were thinking on Election Day 2002!!!!!!

May "god" save America, "please."

GET YOUR DAMN FACTS STRAIGHT!



Subject: Social Security Truths

Q: Which party took Social Security from an independent fund and put it
in the general fund so that Congress could spend it?

A: It was Lyndon Johnson and the Democratic-controlled House and Senate.



Q: Which party put a tax on Social Security?

A: The Democratic party.




Q: Which party increased the tax on Social Security?

A: The Democratic Party with Al Gore casting the deciding vote.




Q. Which party decided to give your Social Security money to immigrants?

A: That's right, the Democratic Party. Immigrants that move into this country at 65 get SSI and have never paid a dime into the system. This is costing us millions of dollars.




Then, after doing all this, the Democrats turn around and tell you the Republicans want to take your Social Security away from you. The worst part about it is that people forget who did what!

Reading that sentence was as pleasant as the first sip of morning coffee.

...I am very much afraid that Sen. Landrieu might lose to Election Commissioner Terrell (a real political airhead if I have ever seen one) in a Dec. 7 runoff in Louisiana...

This guy truly has no right to call anyone an airhead. I have work boots that are smarter than this guy. Terrell would have had to have been decomposing for about 3 years for this guy to call him an airhead.

Probably a bit off topic, but Rush made an astute observation this morning. Find someone who hates Newt Gingrich, and ask them why they hate him. They can't give you a straight answer. It attests to the very thorough politics of personal destruction he was subject to.

"..pick up seats in the House and Senate is far, far beyond my political comprehension!"

A lot of things must be beyond Mr. Bellinger's comprehension; but that's part of the disease known as liberalism.

"...[which] will add billions and billions of dollars in interest payments to the budget for many, many decades to come (a ticking fiscal thermonuclear reaction waiting to happen)..."

I suppose, when cutting spending is never an option for dumbass liberals. The only option is to tax the "truly rich and greedy" who have $350,000 a year baked into pies. (not in the bank where it is loaned to start businesses and payroll..) And the govt could do MUCH better things with their money... like fund abortions and laziness...

These liberals complain about inept political party that can't win an election, but want these same incompetant people to get money and be in charge of govt programs...

If you want a real laugh, check out the link.

"Zot!"-AdminMod, sir, does this sound like the Louisiana Weekly has met the same horrible fate as the Palmetto Journal? Bought and run right into the ground by leftists who can't write?

http://www.louisianaweekly.com/index.html

For over seventy-five years The Louisiana Weekly has articulated the interests of Louisiana's African-American community. We are proud of our longevity, and hope we have been useful. But times have changed.

We have also begun to include the interests of our region's multicultural citizenry who believe the future lies in a growing understanding of our interdependence as members of the same urban/rural household. Our goal is to add value to people's lives by delivering economic, social and scientific "new information" from business, culture, and the natural and social sciences, which enhances personal and community growth.

It is our belief that life is about education - mental, emotional, social and spiritual learning, and personal growth. The more learning and growth we experience, the richer and more meaningful life becomes. Henceforth The Louisiana Weekly will attempt to represent the interests of our multicultural community in its individual and collective quest for a richer, more dimensional, and meaningful quality of life.

Too many lies to count, so let's just try this one:

...maybe the country will receive a "major" wake up call when, for example, Justice Sandra Day O'Connor retires, which I predict she will do when this current session of the U. S. Supreme Court ends in July, and President Bush appoints another Scalia or Thomas to the court in order to repay his political debt to the religious right, just as he said he would like to do during the 2000 campaign, which means the Roe V. Wade decision is toast and when overturned women will be forced to seek out back alley abortions and add to the 80,000 women who already die annually as a result of living in nations where abortions are banned!!!!

Overturning Roe v Wade doesn't make abortion illegal, it merely ends the fiction that the 'right' to an abortion is somehow encoded in the Constitution.

In its absence, who will decide whether unborn children merit any legal protection?

That's right, the people.

But the leftist position on abortion, racial preferences, gun control, etc., etc., is that the peasants have no right to choose. Leftist courts will tell us what is and is not permitted.

As this becomes obvious to more and more people, the leftists find they aren't doing all that well at elections -- even with the assistance of vote fraud -- and they are frothing mad.

Their solution? More tyranny, more lies. Rush and Fox News must be silenced. The leftist media must be seen as impartial. Republicans must be slandered as racist, as religious fanatics, as warmongers. Oh, yes, and as haters...
