THEY DESERVE MY CONTEMPT (and yours too)

I’m always looking for a reason to like republicans (and fiscal conservatives) but damn they make it hard.  It’s easy to understand why they would fight something like health care reform (it’s a [pocket book issue, theirs) so that makes sense.

However, why in the hell would they be blocking an extension of unemployment benefits unless it’s paid for out of the funds provided for job growth?  They don’t raise a lot of hell on giving us seniors a little bonus, but when it come to helping working stiffs who have been unemployed long enough for their original benefits to run out an extension they get all tight pocketed.   Oh , I guess in their tiny little minds allowing all that money to disappear out of the pockets of the desperate is somehow a good thing for the country.  I doubt that it will matter much in the long run, congress will just run over then, even the tongue-tied Senate can get 60 votes on this one. Looking like fools is becoming their standard.

If that isn’t enough to earn your contempt try this one.  30, yes 30 republican senators voted against Al Franken’s amendment to block KBR’s treatment of rape victims working for their company.  Here’s her story if you don’t know about it.  Franken’s amendment forbids the government from doing business with all companies that have those kind of clauses in their contracts.  The demented argued in the case of Acorn for instance that all funding be removed and future monies be prohibited from going to Acorn.   Now let’s be very clear about this, they are for rape but against companies that help the less fortunate.  Did Acorn look stupid , Oh hell yes. Is what Halliburton did  criminal , you bet your butt it was. Clear and simple it was kidnapping on the company’s part for imprisoning her in that container.  Then the big question that has not been asked that I’ve seen is “WHY DID HALLIBURTON  THINK IT NEEDED THAT CLAUSE IN A CONTRACT?”.    Obvious answer , It was so common an  occurrence that it was needed to protect the company.  Yet these 30 NEANDERTHALS  voted against the amendment.

Still short a little to fling you contempt at these creeps?  Try this little rant by their drug addled idiot. chubby, racist, woman hating loud mouth.  Yeah the one and only Rush Limug. (no that’s not a spelling mistake)

Mike Whitney summed it up quite well in this piece I posted the other day.

LADIES AND GENTLEMEN OF THE COUNTRY I REST MY CASE.  YOU MUST FIND THE PARTY CHARGED GUILTY OF BEING LESS THAN HUMAN, HATERS OF THE AMERICAN DREAM, THE SCOURGE OF THE AMERICAN WORKING MAN .

THE SENTENCE, OUT OF CONGRESS, OUT OF THE COUNTRY AND IF YOUR THE PRAYING TYPE HOW ABOUT A LITTLE RAPTURE.
