The Nation Should Be Sad Today

When I read headlines in national syndications like the Huffington Post that say things like "The Quiet Death Of Long-Term Unemployment Insurance In 2013" ( http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2013/12/26/unemployment-insurance-2013_n_4504867.html )  then I am saddened. The fact that the entire party calls people like Rand Paul a pinhead, while caving in to any demand he makes and goes the way of (votes for) his pinhead thinking, is sad. ( http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2013/12/08/rand-paul-unemployment-benefits_n_4408046.html )\
When politicians KNOW that their constituents say things to the press like the article which says, "Unemployment Benefits Can Be 'The Difference Between Making It And Not Making It' ", then we should all be sad. Saddened by the fact that someone in our nation's legislative branch is either stupid or uninformed to the point that it makes us believe, honestly, that they are delusional. I don't say that as an insult, because I know the true definition of the word.
Delusional in the dictionary is defined like this:
"de·lu·sion·al [dih-loo-zhuh-nl] adjective
1. having false or unrealistic beliefs or opinions
2. maintaining fixed false beliefs even when confronted with facts, usually as a result of mental illness "
The quote from Einstein concerning trying to fix our problems using the same methods with which we created them, has become the driving force behind the Republican Party. The other quote I love  from Einstein is the description of insanity, "Doing the same thing repeatedly, while each time expecting a different result.", is the biggest methodology of Republicans who call themselves conservatives, which is, in itself a lie.
Someone who wants to go backwards in life is not a person who is trying to "preserve necessary and traditional values", they then want to preserve values that are personal to them, no matter how unenlightened and uninformed they are, which are also not something the majority of people with critical thinking skills (who can think like an adult should be able to) want to see happen, much less want to see instituted as an indoctrination of others. That I think, it the error of the idea of free speech. Treason and all traitorous acts can be seen as "free speech" by the corrupted. People who have proven that they don't have the thinking skills to figure out how to not live like an enlightened human being don't need everyone to "be fair with them" or "honor their right to their opinion" when it infringes on the rights of others, in my opinion.
They need, I believe, to be told once and for all to SHUT THE FUCK UP and let the adults make the decisions. I am a firm believer in the quote from Isaac Asimov that says, "There is a cult of ignorance in the United States, and there always has been. The strain of anti-intellectualism has been a constant thread winding its way through our political and cultural life, nurtured by the false notion that democracy means that 'my ignorance is just as good as your knowledge.' " Isaac Asimov

Have a nice day, and I truly mean that for everyone, including the uninformed,
