People Who Define Everything They Don't Agree With As Liberal

Anyone who defines everything they hear that they don't want to believe as liberal or socialist is a common phenomena in the United States. There wouldn't be a problem with our economy right now if everyone who stood up for the G.O.P. greedy rich who took over religion, politics, and legislation in our country weren't supported by the ill informed. We all know someone like that. They are so brainwashed that when faced with evidence that completely debunks their point of view, they fight harder to believe it, rather than accept that they might have been wrong. In order to do this they are in what I call "a state of delusion". Some people call this denial but denial is when you look at a problem and consider it a problem but you look away. This is what you call the average person who wants to hang onto an incorrect theory rather than face the fact that it is wrong.
Then you have the true believer in a wrong theory. They CAN'T admit they might be wrong because they define themselves by a specific point of view. Their whole being makes them Troll the online bulletin boards and chat rooms on the internet in order to find SOMEONE to tell that they are correct in  the face of all evidence that their theories are incorrect but they hang on to any argument that has been proven to be incorrect a if their life depended on it because they are so highly insecure that they have no other way to reinforce in themselves their beliefs. When one of them is proven wrong with mountains of evidence, they try to discredit the evidence by calling it "LIBERAL" or merely say, "I am sure that is wrong..." but NEVER  have evidence to prove their point.
They are part of a movement. They believe if they keep saying something that is wrong long enough it will somehow become true or at least some people will believe it. The danger in this is that some who aren't that intelligent will believe it. When legions of the ill informed in this country are given a survey on what is correct or not, this is the kind of things that happen.
The Pew Research Institute Study on Religious Knowledge  ,
The Public Mind Poll from Farleigh Dickinson University  ,
And armed with the information that they are completely misinformed, this is their course of action:

  1. Argue harder that they are sure you are wrong;
  2. Make up talking points that don't make sense just to say something other than admit they were wrong;
  3. Try to discredit your source of information  although they themselves don't have a source of information that explains or details their point.

My only question is, "When are we going to start testing people on their knowledge before they are allowed to vote or run for office based on tests devised to correctly assess one's ability to make a rational decision that isn't based on opinion?" Because, in lieu of that, we are going to hard pressed to come up with a manner of living in society without constant conflict and the most devious (because they are wrong they don't see themselves as such) of our society using lies and deceit to control our media, political process, and monetary system. You decide. Please scroll down to the bottom of this page and answer the questions in the poll below.

What I Have Learned From Republicans


  1. Anyone who starts a speech with the words, "My Friends, ..." is probably not your friend. ( Henry David Thoreau quote: " ...If you see a man approaching with the obvious intent 
    of doing you good, run for your life. "
  2. Invent religious messages that aren't in any spiritual book to hide behind while doing the opposite of anything any religion ever taught. (You will also need to make it appear you are a member of that same religion in order for it to look like you might know something about religion and social ethics.)
  3. When you have a certain level of income taxes coming in to bolster the prudent reserve, reduce the national debt, and support government spending that is working successfully, then the proper action is to decrease incoming capital (income taxes) and increase spending (trillion dollar military expenses) and tell anyone stupid enough to listen that something is going to trickle down, someday and when confronted on how 2 minus 2 doesn't equal five, blame it on everyone else.
  4. Make sure your friends who own big businesses are served by government first and make everyone else pay for it.
  5. Friends are people who send campaign contributions. The people whose labor and earnings support your friends don't have an opinion that matters.
  6. Talking points and emotional pleas are more important to think about than real issues that effect everyone daily.
  7. Don't ever have fear that a violent revolution is coming since you  know people are sheep and will follow since this is a nation who isn't desperate yet.
  8. Whenever you hear someone threatening to tell the truth about you being a fascist, attack them in the news with slander, propaganda, and fear campaigns that discredit them while calling them godless socialists.

Occupy Wall Street Protesters Arrested

WHEN WILL IT BE ENOUGH?

The Occupy People who call themselves the 99% are making some noise which is focusing the conversation away from the distractions that are set up to make us forget who actually started and continues to perpetuate the financial crisis in America and they scare the hell out of the one percent. They had eight years of free reign under George Bush while GOP like John McCain and Jon Kyle deregulated any ethics legislation that kept unchecked war profiteering and while simultaneously creating huge government waste (into the pockets of the one percent who were profiting from the wars). The idea that free speech actually can come out of someone's mouth instead of through unlimited campaign donations is another part of the end of liberty and our freedoms for the sake of the corporate stooges in New York City. Mayor Bloomberg tops the list and the NYPD come second in the line of conspirators who want to help stop actual freedom of speech. 
The question is being repeatedly asked, "Hasn't this been long enough?" and my answer is, "NO, not until things change." They want the conversation to be redirected to distraction and subterfuge like it has been the majority of the time since just previous to the last election. They know that a grass roots movement focused on the real issues will cause them to have to quit being so greedy with the nation's wealth in the instance that people know the truth. They continue to control the news and try to manipulate the facts to discredit the Occupy Wall Street Movement. They call them hippies and lazy subculture whiners who are clueless. The truth is that is the furthest from the truth. They are hoping the hard hat real workers of today are going to come to their aid and get these riff raff off the street like they did during the Yippie days. 
But guess who showed up at Occupy Wall Street: 


The reality is that the 99 percent are actually The Culture, not a subculture. They are you and me. WE ARE THE NINETY NINE PERCENT and the demonstrators are standing up for us.
So to those of you who wonder when it will be long enough, here is my answer:


  1. When congress starts measuring their ability to govern by how well their constituents are doing and how well the general population is doing and how happy we all are, instead of how high a number of soft money contributions they receive. 
  2. When the Supreme Court admits that Freedom of Speech is something that has to do with speaking, not campaign contributions. When they acknowledge the unfairness they created while pitting corporations against "real" people.
  3. When anyone saying that there is an acceptable level of unemployment learns that there is no such thing.
  4. When the idea that minimum wage jobs simultaneous with maximum increases in the cost of living is acceptable goes away. 
  5. When the notion that Greed is Good stops being the mantra of our business community. (That thinking might have worked in the movies "Wall Street" and "Wall Street Never Sleeps at Night" for Gordon Gecko the fictional character, but it doesn't work in reality.)
  6. When Wall Street bankers and other special interests quit being able to buy our democracy and our right to representation.
  7. When political parties quit speaking for religions and religions quit acting as if they are the voice of political parties.
  8. When 99 percent of us actually see this country being the land of opportunity again as it was originally intended to be instead of it being an opportunity for the 99 percent of us to subsidize the 1 percent of us. 
  9. When the Bush tax cuts for the rich (that were intended to be a "Temporary Incentive" to create jobs) are rescinded and the wealthiest Americans start paying their fair share of income tax.
  10. When we see the jobs that the one percent were given tax breaks to create return to the land they were supposed to be created in and quit being a manner of paying slave wages while calling that the "global economy" instead of what it is, UNLIMITED GREED.
  11. When we can see in writing from congress that these measures aren't going to be temporary and politicians quit using the police to bully people who speak out against corruption.
  12. When the good of the people means the majority of us, not a few.

THAT IS WHEN IT WILL BE ENOUGH, SO DON'T KEEP ASKING (as if you don't understand) AND ACTING IMPATIENT UNTIL YOU ARE READY TO CHANGE AND MAKE THE CHANGES PERMANENTLY IRON CLAD AND IRREVERSIBLE. IF THE POLICE AND POLITICIANS KEEP BULLYING THE PROTESTERS WHO ARE LEGALLY ASSEMBLING THEN WE WILL HAVE TO RECALL ALL OF YOU FROM YOUR POSITION OF AUTHORITY. WE ARE "ALL" THE 99 PERCENT OF AMERICA AND DON'T GET IT CONFUSED WITH PROTESTS OF THE PAST. WE ARE NOT A SPECIAL INTEREST GROUP, WE ARE A PUBLIC AWARENESS SERVICE TO THE PEOPLE OF AMERICAN SOCIETY. SO, IF YOU TRULY WANT TO GET RID OF US, CHANGE THE THINGS THAT ARE WRONG AND MEET OUR DEMANDS AND WE WILL GO HOME. OTHERWISE THIS IS GOING TO GET REALLY NASTY.

Arizona Elections (supposedly) Full of Tainted Contribution Moneys



The thought always occurs to me to wonder, "When is the state of Arizona going to wake up and stop electing the same carpetbagger type crooks who have already become rich campaigning as politicians and receiving illegal campaign contributions?" This is a good example of why the Supreme Court Ruling was sought by the lobbyists that make a profit from leveraging our legislation that should be for the people to be bought and paid for by the so called "special interests", A.K.A. "Corrupt Businesses" that want to control the legal system so that they can fleece the public. Everything here in Arizona from the corporation commission to the department of financial systems is so easily manipulated by the large corporate types that control the state. Years ago the Phoenix 40 ran the city council with their "qualified requests" to everyone from the Chamber of Commerce to the city councils to the Indian Reservation Tribal Councils through donations. Old time political masters still have a few tricks that were passed on to today's group of corrupt officials who still buy elections through what they call a form of "grass roots" senior citizen campaigning. They load several vans full of those who can't hardly remember their own name most of the time and drive them to the polls to vote. They feed them candy and ice cream, anything they want to eat that they can't get at the nursing home. While these seniors are in a euphoric sugar haze and in a good mood, the candidate's name is repeated to them over and over while reminding them what nice guy he is for giving them all a ride to the polls since they can't get out on their own. They have been doing this kind of influence on a state full of senior homes where so many people basically come here to retire or convalesce previous to dying since the state was run by the Northern and Southern Elite Families in Arizona, (Whose names I don't need to mention since most of their lineage have become the governors and mayors and other prominent positioned politicians in this state.) our own brand of Aristocracy. Formed in 1975, the "Phoenix 40" was an organization of influential Phoenix businessmen who professed to be working for the greater good of the community. They represented the top executives whose families, to this day, still run the media, finance and industry for this whole state.


From the Keaton Five Scandal to the Don Bolles Murder investigation, the slightest implication of wrong doing on the part of any of their families brings media, police, and legal bullying with a broad brush, like a bullet proof hazzardous materials sanitation crew, to fend off any complications before the real story is exposed to it's fullest degree. Then there is The Arizona Republican  which is mirrored online by AZcentral.com .

I remember when three of our state's most prominent businessmen and our governor were implicated during the Bolles Murder Indictment Trials and the governor suddenly found an ambassadorship in a Central American country and disappeared like the wind. And whenever these same people's children go into the military, somehow on their return they become "war heroes" and immediately are accepted by the public here as such, because the people of Arizona seem to believe anything they see on television.


Recently Russell Pearce, the sponsor of the controversial law on illegal immigrants SB 1070, became the first state legislator in Arizona history to be removed from office via a recall election in November 2011. He is expected to officially leave office once the Arizona Secretary of State certifies the recall election results, which is anticipated November 21st. In my opinion, this is merely a good start and the rest need to go, SOON! I can't wait to see it happen.


Now, on top of all that, Phoenix just had a Mayoral race and there were two distinctly different candidates. One was Russell Gullett who is my odds on favorite to be the kind of politician that Arizona has a history of voting for, and in my opinion should never elect again. So instead of as per usual, the citizens of Phoenix elected a guy named Stanton. I am still shaking my head, although glad, despite a small scandal over TAINTED ELECTION CAMPAIGN MONEY reported by the Arizona Republic (in another biased review). Mayoral candidate Greg Stanton's former campaign treasurer will serve one year of supervised probation for stealing more than $77,000 from an account Stanton used to run for Phoenix City Council. There is more about this at: http://www.azcentral.com/community/phoenix/articles/2011/09/19/20110919phoenix-mayor-race-stanton-treasurer-probation-stealing.html#ixzz1dTxsFVC4

And Phoenix New Times columnist Monica Alonzo reported a humorous piece on Greg Stanton, calling him the "Enemy of The People": http://blogs.phoenixnewtimes.com/valleyfever/2011/06/greg_stanton_phoenix_mayoral_c_1.php

with a reference to the movie by the same name and picture of actor "Gene Hackman" making that famous quote, "...It's not paranoia if they're really after you."

There was actually a Republican News Letter that went out calling him "The candidate to beat" and this is why they listed as reasons:


- Endorsed by police union. (Boy, there is a real reason to hate this guy, huh?)
- Endorsed by LGBT special interest group. (I am sure this put him on the list for sure.)
- Proudly says he would have voted for the food tax. (So did most of the Republicans, they are the store owners here, but they threw this in anyway.This is a misrepresentation, see 
http://www.azcentral.com/community/phoenix/articles/2011/10/26/20111026phoenix-food-tax-remains.html
- Waves away criminal charges when the perpetrator is connected enough.
- Protested SB1070 in the parking lot of the Heard Museum last year. (No comment.)
- Tagged by the DLC in 2003 as one of the country's 100 "Rising New Democrat Stars". (Oh My God! Commie!)

    John McCain's Thinks This Is Funny

    From the Reuters report about the comment of John McCain. He thinks more Yachts and Private Planes are more important than the hiring that these people needed to be doing since the Bush Tax cuts were created for the Jobs Creators. Rich spoiled billionaires and millionaires that John McCain defends as needing to be defended from the rest of us, the 99 percent of those needing jobs and an income in the United States. The Republicans in congress are the first to worry about taxes but they don't seem to understand that income tax comes from taxable incomes of the working class, not the pittance they get from the one percent who hide behind shelters and lobbying bought and paid for politicians in our congress.

    Praise OHIO! Thank You!

    To protect everyone in the 99 percent the people of Ohio actually stepped out in the street and did what needed to be done around the country.

    My Occupy Phoenix Experience



    Hi everyone, I was trying to video record this whole sequence which the speech made by the protester was really heartfelt and good but you will have to expand the description below it to understand what is going on because the traffic noise was so bad that you can hardly hear him. The whole protest kind of got killed by lousy organization on someone's part who posted the calendar of events. They told everyone to meet at Cesar Chavez PARK that I showed in that other video. Cesar Chavez PLAZA is where the actual protest was supposed to take place by City Hall. Most people probably did what I did, drove to the park (which is 8.5 miles away according to Google Maps) and looked around, didn't see anyone and went home.


    Anyway, here is the video at : http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ny-NTRC9vb4


    Anyone planning to be in the area and wants to go there should go to 210 W. Washington and NOT TO 35th Avenue and West Baseline Road.
