Putting politics and party ahead of Country, Republican in the Senate blocks bank reforms.

GOP, which side are you ? Wall Street, banks or the middle class?

One democrat blue dog joined in. Who?

“The Senate, in a 57-41 vote, failed to get the 60 supporters needed to proceed on the regulatory overhaul. One Democrat, Sen. Ben Nelson of Nebraska, joined with the Republicans.”

This is another like “health care  debate”.

GOP have no shame.

We all know why our blue dog joined the GOP’s twisted platform. Who contributed to his campaign?

I am getting tired of republicans and some blue dogs double standards when it comes to the middle class. I am tired of the crying to have their country back, when at the same time destroying the same country they claim to love.

President Obama send out a harsh statement:
The White House

Office of the Press Secretary

For Immediate Release April 26, 2010
Statement by the President on Financial Reform
“I am deeply disappointed that Senate Republicans voted in a block against allowing a public debate on Wall Street reform to begin. Some of these Senators may believe that this obstruction is a good political strategy, and others may see delay as an opportunity to take this debate behind closed doors, where financial industry lobbyists can water down reform or kill it altogether. But the American people can’t afford that. A lack of consumer protections and a lack of accountability on Wall Street nearly brought our economy to its knees, and helped cause the pain that has left millions of Americans without jobs and without homes. The reform that both parties have been working on for a year would prevent a crisis like this from happening again, and I urge the Senate to get back to work and put the interests of the country ahead of party.”

It is Easter Weekend Saturday, nice and sunny, warm about 70 degrees. I am at the Democrats Head quarters doing my volunteer work. I am hanging out in the office with a good companion, my dog Smokey.

What is going on in NJ 5th District – Warren County?
This year Democrats candidates are running for office;
Tod Theise, who ran for office as a democrat freeholder candidate against Angelo Acceturo, is running for US Congress in NJ district 5 against the GOP ” god” Scott Garrett who votes “NO” on every policy that benefits the middle class.
Tammy Smith, who ran last year for NJ assembly in the 23rd district, is running for Surrogate and Robert Gara is running for Sheriff.
I call these candidates “brave hearts.”
On the other hand, the GOP opposition is going crazy with their Tea party rallies against the Health Care. A Tea Party Rally is scheduled for April 10 2010 at 10.00AM in Warren County headed by State Senator Mike Doherty.

See what we are up to in Christie’s base counties

Doherty ( R-Warren-, Hunterdon) and assembly woman Alison Littell McHose are calling on New Jersey attorney General Paula Dow to join attorneys in other 14 states in a lawsuit against Health Care which was signed into law last week claiming it is unconstitutional. No republican in either house of congress and senate supported the bill.

HYPOCRICY: GOP Spending is Not Wasteful until Democrats Spends.
Now try to match the two. Saturday is a Tea party Rally against health care in Warren County, at the same time,  GOP- Warren county Board of  freeholders approved the $7.3 million for the purchase of 445 Marshall street in Phillipsburg and some renovations on the existing Warren county community College. For clarity sake, I am pro- education, and I welcome any expansion to Warren County College, because this will benefit our students who are future leaders.
..But what I have a problem with, is the hypocrisy of the Grand Obstruction Party, who wants to have it both ways. This is the state with a Republican governor who is panting over Democrats spending and cutting all state education Aid.

His Budget cuts has also led to the closure of  Psychiatric Hospital.

Along with other cuts announced , Gov. Chris Christie called for closing the 310-bed hospital with about 600 employees in Lebanon Township by June 2011. Many have called this as a reckless move by Govenor Chris Christie.

Also, last week Christie was in montclair addressing high school student at Montclair high school, explaining himself out why he is cutting education funding. Here is the GOP governor talking to students last week. Remember essex county is highly dominated by Democrats, and that is where he targeted most of his cuts. Not Warren County.

WEST ORANGE — “Facing a dramatic cut in state aid, West Orange schools plan to lay off 84 staff members, including 33 teachers, to make up the difference.”

In Warren County ( Christie’s base) the project worth $7.3 Million just got approved, at the same time, this is the same GOP County and tea party groups who are protesting the government for passing health care , while their GOP governor Christie, is crying foul over the state deficit.
Is  this the same governor who will pay for half the price of the approved Project in Warren County?

 Are Christie’s cuttings only targeted in the heavily Democrat populated counties? What is this game about?
It is ok for GOP to spend, but it is not ok when it is a Democrat coming up with any type of project. This is hypocritical, or should I say playing double standards to win voter support on both sides?

This is where I have a problem with GOP leadership it is all about bulling people;

Christie is still out fighting the teachers in NJ, what I find troubling is. Why can’t he fight his own base as well? How can Chris Christie look into people ‘s eyes and say he is trying to balance the deficit by cutting spending , when his base is benefiting, by advocating for the rich?

 According to the Warren County Reporter and express times, the $7.3 million project will be financed by the bond ordinance, and half of the project will be financed by the state, since the state is responsible for the debt service on bond through the chapter 12 state funding program, which was created to help finance facilities at county colleges since colleges are not permitted to take on debt. Hmmm.

What is wrong with this picture? Closing the hospital, and substuting it for something else that can wait until the state is out of recession?

Listen Tea Bags; you cannot have it both ways.
I love Warren County; especially living in the midst of the opposition is so much fun.


President Obama makes a surprise visit to Afghanistan.

Sorry Mr President , I heard the other day from  Sarah Palin the leader of the Tea Party movement aligned with  GOP party  at one of the rallies she headed with McCain in Arizona and Nevada on Saturday, ranting that your presidency has not brought in any change. She also made  an impression  way back, that our troops do not like you. And this proves that she was right.

Ouch!!!!  Now this is Change we can believe in.

” Howee is the changy workin for ya Mr president?” 

It must be killing  Sarah Palin to see this.  Hell No is  going to explode on this one.

You can see more of these pictures here


Update: Health care passed with zero Republican vote. Wow.

Senate 56-43. House passed it by 219 to 212 initial and 220-207 second time. Congratulations!!!!!!

If I was a democrat Congressman, and voted No, I would be so embarrassed voting with the party that has crazy followers who are now sending threats to Democrats. Why can’t people respect the voting process. Violent is not the answer.

I blame  FOX news, Sarah Palin and GOP elected officials for playing  dangerous politics in feeding the American people with false information just for the sake of winning the elections. Instigating anger and supporting the party movement with wrong message.

GOP leaders together with the blue dogs should be ashamed of themselves. Really.

Sending  threats and filing law suits to block health care for all is a shame. It is so inhuman.

This is the most coward act I have ever seen in my entire life, using politics of fear and lies. I have no idea what play book the Republican Party is reading.

 Republicans in Democrats clothing  ( Blue Dogs) who voted against the Healthcare Bill will face reality come November elections.

 Voters will send you home on election day-Nov 2nd!”  they will send you back to the private sectors with  a “ballot”.

Democrats voters are civilized people , they believe in a peacefull election, not violent or stealing the ballot to win. If you think people will be afraid to go out and vote because of the GOP and tea party threat and violent tactics, wait and see. November elections are coming up.

Actually, the threats just made me sign up to volunteer for democrats. I am not afraid at all.

Americans sent you to Washington to represent them, not to represent the big Corporations. Shame on you !!!


Brainwashed clueless Americans exposed their ignorance on Saturday 20, 2010 by protesting the most historical and important bill for every American in this country.This is because Fox and other pundits keep feeding the wrong information to ordinary poor uninformed Americans. The result is, people are drunk with the Glenn Beck, Rush Limbaugh, Fox News, Sarah Palin. and Michelle Bachmann poison cool aid.

 This is video is compiled by the New left Media

and this is why we need education in this country.

 I do not know how to make of the republican party, who sorely decided to favor insurance companies, and other  rich financial corporations, and coldly  turned their backs on  ordinary Americans.

The formation of the tea party movement which the Republican elected officials consistently endorsed, not only has driven the racial slurs against the sitting president, but also, the GOP endorsement to this movement is highly  contributing to dividing this great nation. High profiles GOP political figures like, Sarah Palin and Michelle Bachmann, are proudly identifying themselves as heads of the tea party movement. This is a shame, because deep down Palin and Bachmann’s heart, they care less about the American people, but their names and $$ pocket period.

I am torturing myself today watching FOX News, so I can listen to their FAUX coverage. Oh dear me, I hope I make it through this day.


Suggestion To All Elected officials in Washington

All Senators, congressmen and women, should each sponsor a family for healthcare if this bill fails to pass.

Each elected official must pledge $1000 to help those who are losing health care due to the bloated health care industry hiking fees.

Now this brought tears on my face.

Congress/senator

Only a heartless person would go out and protest passing of health care. Worse for elected officials who plan to vote “NO”.

Do the right thing. Check the link to all the numbers you need to call elected officials now.


Just my observation. 

You want to know why I am keeping an eye on Sarah Palin, Here is one. Click and read

http://www.nj.com/news/index.ssf/2009/11/gov-elect_chris_christies_vict.html

You have no idea how disappointed I am to learn that the group I thought were smart enough to capture the swap, bought into GOP lies and voted for the opposition.

 New Jersey Democrats voted for GOP Chris Christie, in the belief that Christie’s Message of change to Trenton will deliver them from Jon Corzine. Well they drew a blank.

Gov Elect Christie  took office, and his concentration to cut jobs goes to the democratic base,  though he is going to keep the prevailing wage. Which makes some moderates happy.

He is not mentioning auditing his base and cutting wasteful spending in GOP dominated counties, even though, there are  some wasteful spending in his base. Raising their salaries during the recession, just to name one. Yes I mean Warren County, with GOP leadership. Check their County Budget.

 I knew New Jersey was going to be duped.

I cannot believe how people can be this clueless on issues that are so important to their lives.

Agreeing with Baker, I saw this in Christie’s message, but People in New Jersey could not see through Christie.

“He could never win statewide otherwise,” Baker said. “Christie presented himself in a way that people who don’t like Corzine could feel that it was acceptable to vote for him.”

Very True. As I noted in June 2009.

https://bilia.wordpress.com/2009/06/02/elephants-targets-voters-in-donkey-dress-code-for-super-tuesday-june-02-09/

Now follow my trail…….start connecting dots to see how Sarah is connected to New Jersey. Remember I live in a community full of the clueless. ..

Why do I care about all this?

I pay my share in property taxes, some how, some of my money is ending up into their pockets of GOP salaries in NJ Warren County. 

It is pissing me off, because not only the GOP leadership sucks, but they are all bunch of greedy,liers,self righteous sucking  ordinary Americans, and shifting the blame on other people when they are part of the problem.

 Sarah Palin connection to NJ-  Since she declared herself as the head of the tea party movement, below is the connection.

Steve Lonegan, Tea Bagger and Michael Doherty.

Assemblyman Michael Doherty, who has aligned himself with hard-liners such as Sarah Palin and former Bogota Mayor Steve Lonegan, said conservatives have a better chance after eight years of “failed” Democratic leadership. “

Doherty was elected NJ Senate this election.

You’re going to see moderate Republicans become very conservative in the next few months,” said Lonegan, the state director of the conservative Americans for Prosperity group. “Everybody wants to be a conservative now.”

Christie and Doherty rode a political tide that has led to “tea party” protests against health care reform at town hall meetings, and bolstered the strength of conservative activist groups such as Americans for Prosperity, said Stephen Spinosa, chairman of the New Jersey Conservative Party.

“Even the state Republican State Committee, which conservatives believe has capitulated too much to the Republican Party’s moderate wing, believe the election brought together a party that has been fractured for more than a decade.”

“We are unified around core principles,” said Assemblyman Jay Webber, the state GOP chairman. “We are fiscal conservatives, and we have respect for traditional values.”

 Bunch of racists.

Christie’s campaign, he noted, emphasized fiscal policies and steered clear of social conservatism that’s championed by Lonegan and other hard-line conservatives.

“This pumps new life in the conservative movement but now he needs to govern like a conservative,” said Lonegan.

“Lonegan, for instance, said Christie should consider cutting programs that, he believes, are wasteful and defy conservative principles — such as the state’s stem-cell research initiatives. “

Who is to blame? Lazy Democrats. They just handed over the leadership to bullies.

CNN, reported that most Americans think Democrats caused the recession.

 It is sad, because this is what ignorance does to the nation. When people become like Robots, they depend on media to feed them with crap.

My eyes have stayed open on everything, since 2002 elections. I have followed politics. I was never involved until last year. From Nov 4 2008 to January 20 2009. After that date, the angry losers could not sleep having a thought of democrat worse of a black president in the white house. That is where the out cry of the constitution comes in, “I want my country back .”

I laugh every time I hear that outcry, “I want my country back,” because in all fairness, some should pack and go back to Italy, France, Britain, German, and the rest of the world were their ancestors came from. GOP claims their ancestors wrote the constitution for them.

Well did they say, this country belongs to Republicans only. George Washington’s family migrated from England, so was James Madison migrated from England. So go back to England and claim back your country.

Is Steve Lonegan, Sarah Palin, Glen Beck, Mitchell Bachman,Rush Limbaugh, Native American Indians?

I know to some, my analysis do not make sense.

 I pointed out the same observation way back . I got a negative response. I was told I am still in the  process of learning politics, people are smart, they are not going to buy the change message from the Republicans. They know whose’s slogan for change belongs to.

Well It happened in New Jersey, GOP Candidate Chris Christie ‘s campaign was change , change and change.

I saw a swap in the message of campaign, and for sure, Jon Corzine’s camp could not catch it. They took it for granted that New Jersey residents are smart enough to figure that out. Wrong, wrong and wrong.

The election day I watched and head people at the Christie victory chanting Yes We Can, Yes We can.  I was like wait a minute, is nt that President Obama’s slogan????? That rings to my argument. GOP, run on bank ideas, they all wait for that one to give ideas that they oppose , but run with his slogan? The shocking part, is no democrats went after Christie to say hey, your slogan is COUNTRY FIRST. With the country full of clueless people, do not take anything for granted.

Mr Christie is not that change. The only solution he has for NJ, is to go after the public schools, although NJ101.5 is already setting the Gov elect’s standard low, after knowing that the plan is no plan.  Candidate Christie criticized his opponent Jon Corzine, on wasteful spending on public school, one of it is prevailing wages, making it a point, to New Jersey Residents as the reason property taxes are so high in New Jersey. The first change Mr Christie will do is to shrink the administration by firing some Union Members, and the Corzine Cronies, and replacing them with Mr Christie’s cronies. That is not change to shrink the adminstration organization chart. That is what we call replacement strategy.

After winning MR Christie now says, he is not going to touch the prevailing wage.

 Question of curiosity.

Wasn’t it the democratic system who made a prevailing wage as an executive order by Democrats Governors?

Like I pointed out in June,

here I still think Republicans are capitalizing on Democrats’s weaknesses.  The why Sarah Palin book Drama is one way the Republicans capture the public ‘s attention. The Glenn Beck Tea bagging drama is a destruction. The Fox Media, Rush Limbaugh, NJ101.5,  figured out one way to improve ratings is to do sound bites that will anger the clueless uninformed 

 stupid teatards?

Democrats are getting obstruction by Tea Baggers, while GOP candidates, are getting away with a message of change in their campaigns. This is working to the advantage of Republicans. Sarah Palin is the example of their tool to obstruct democrats.

Looking at how many millions of uninformed Americans in this country, my advise is, Democrats should start organizing themselves to start campaigns to educate people with how the system works, their government, starting from local and getting deep into municipalities.

If every citizen can take interest to attend the local municipal township and county meetings ,take time studying , learning the county, township budget, and everything in it, they will figure out who the culprits are, in this recession.

Fox News , NJ 101.5, have figured out, how to increase their rating, target the uninformed. It is working to their advantage.

So Democrats, do not take things for granted. Every VOTE  counts, your efforts to educate others is your responsibility.

Just my rant.
