OBAMA’S CLIMATE CHANGE HYPOCRISY

This petition is very kind to Obama to claim he’s “in denial” over his hypocrisy on climate change, which he had the nerve to spout in Alaska after greenlighting Arctic offshore drilling which has environmentalists hopping mad. Obama isn’t in denial, he’s a highly intelligent man who knows good and well that he’s selling our climate’s health to the highest bidder. What other planet were you going to live on after greed destroys this one? Addressing climate change was one of Obama’s stated top three goals of his second term, and we get talking out of both sides of his mouth? Please sign if you agree.
Sign the petition to President Obama:

“Climate leaders don’t drill the Arctic. Talking about the urgency of climate change while allowing massive fossil fuel extraction isn’t leadership, it’s hypocrisy. Science says we must not burn 80% of known fossil fuel reserves, including all Arctic oil. President Obama, to lead on climate, you must Keep It In The Ground.”

BEST OF MAE WEST FILM CLIPS

Best of Mae West :)

Mae West - love her! here's her best lines.. <3 ~ Sarcastic Bitch of a Mother

Posted by Sarcastic Bitch of a Mother on Sunday, June 21, 2015

Ya gotta love Mae. Not that pretty, not that thin and her first movie was made when she was 40. Before that, she put on huge Broadway shows including transvestites! I think one such production got her arrested. And my fave Mae tribute–she used to darken the teeth of every woman she shared the stage with–to make her own choppers seem brighter. Demented. (Gotta try it!)

PETITION OF THE DAY

Our tax system is upside down – big corporations pay lower tax rates than local small businesses and the ultra wealthy pay lower tax rates than the rest of us.

But one way that our tax system does help people afford the basics is by giving them tax credits for work (Earned Income Tax Credit) and for child care (Child Tax Credit). But some key provisions within these credits won’t be around forever. We need Congress to do the right thing and make these key provisions permanent so families can continue to make ends meet.

Click here to tell Congress to make these provisions permanent!

When Congress returns from their break this fall, Republicans will be looking at extending huge tax giveaways to big corporations and Wall Street. Instead of more tax breaks for corporations that cut wages and ship our jobs overseas, Congress should be boosting tax credits for hard-working families that help families provide for their children and meet the basics.

Click here to tell Congress to stand up for an America that works for all of us, not just the wealthy!

These pro-work tax credits help millions of hard-working Americans make ends meet, go to work, and provide the basics for their children. Without them, it will be harder to pay for things like childcare and transportation that help keep these families working.

Thank you for all that you do,

Sarah Chaisson Warner
Campaign Director – Fight for Families

AN INTERESTING TAKE ON KIM DAVIS’S RELIGIOUS OBJECTION TO GAY MARRIAGE

This is an interesting meme, not only because my parents are Quaker. But it begs the question: Why aren’t other Christian denominations also pacifists if they worship Jesus, the Prince Of Peace? Maybe because often people can’t even understand their own religions which they claim to worship and give money to. Instead, churches in this country actually offer shooting lessons. 11947664_10153646698809255_6325213450037414338_n

VERY TELLING ARTICLE WRITTEN BY A GUN OWNER

10387462_773089182726543_8370823349900418606_n-2

Gun violence is a shocking indictment of both of our political parties who would rather kowtow to the NRA and weapons manufacturers than concern ourselves with our safety.

HUFFPO: America’s Lack of Gun Regulation Is Shameful Political Cowardice

“Thousands and thousands of people, myself included, have been trying to get this discussion going for years. There have been more than 800 mass shootings since Sandy Hook, and politicians still don’t care beyond the minimum expected lip service immediately following an incident.

Have we seen any reforms to prevent weapons and ammunition from making their way into the hands of the mentally ill? No.

Have we seen any progress on creating national standards for background checks on gun buyers? No way.

Have we seen any efforts to restrict the most dangerous weapons, the highest capacity magazines, or the most damaging ammunition? Not a chance.

The failure to implement even the most general or common sense reforms in the light of 800 mass shootings is an absolute refusal to lead on the part of Congress. It’s a flat-out disregard for the safety of American citizens. It’s shameful political cowardice.

When Australia had a sickening mass shooting, they banded together as a nation and took action. When we have a mass shooting, the NRA pushes for more guns. What happened to America being an example for the world?

As I always must, let me clarify: I am not advocating for a total ban on firearms. I am a proud gun owner myself and believe strongly in Americans’ right to bear arms. Our constitution guarantees that right. It does not, however, guarantee the right to bear arms without regulation. In fact, the word “regulated” is clearly present in the second amendment.”

BUSHWIG FESTIVAL APPROACHING!

Great pic of the Brooklyn gurls causing a scene aboard Wigstock: The Cruise by Jason Russo. Some fantastic looks–and Matty Horrorchata, I gotta say that a fan with your name on it is a great way to advertise that your fake vagina is for sale. Sick bitch! Was great to hang with the new girls and delighted that they showed up. I recognize Merrie Cherry, Simon Leahy and Marti Balloveras but don’t know all of their names. However, I’ll be joining them to perform their drag festival in Brooklyn on Sept 12th. The Bushwig festival, now in it’s third year is from 9/11-13.

KANYE’S WORDS OF WISDOM

 

I’m no fan of his music, and many hate him because of his outlandish remarks about Taylor Swift vs Beyonce or whatever. But I respect Kanye for speaking truth to power about Katrina on live TV. And in so doing, putting another shovel of dirt on the coffin of George W. Bush’s presidency. Kanye also spoke out against homophobia in hip-hop when he really didn’t have to. Of course, that was before the Kardashian years….

 

A BOGUS SPEECH BY A BOGUS PRESIDENT

Yesterday, Obama spoke in New Orleans at the 10 year anniversary of Katrina. I’m not quite sure why we celebrate disasters’ anniversaries, but it was a chance for Obama to take a victory lap and show how things had improved since the horrific tragedy. Katrina helped derail George W. Bush’s presidency as we realized en masse that here was a man content to fly over the disaster in a private jet and claim that his unqualified FEMA head was doing a “heckuva job.”

Soured on Bush, we sought the opposite in our next presidential election. Instead of a Texas oil man ready to start a war in any country with a redneck’s “Don’t fuck with us” attitude–even towards Iraq which never even fucked with us–we chose a totally different type of man as our next president. A mixed race guy from the Midwest who educated, charming and was one of the few who did not support the Iraq war. We thought he would take us in a totally different direction. And listening to Obama joke about getting grease stains on his suit after feasting on a New Orleans’ incredible cuisine, I was reminded of the man I voted for and even donated money to.

Then Obama started talking about the jobs and opportunities that had been added as New Orleans had bounced back. And I recognized the man who Obama has become in office. Still handsome, still charming and still able to deliver a joke like no president I can remember. But Obama has proved that he has no interest in creating jobs. He is actively seeking to destroy jobs with the Trans Pacific Partnership, a trade deal written by corporate lobbyists governing 40% of the world’s trade. It would lead to a frenzy of outsourcing of American jobs, as we’d be forced to compete with workforces in countries like Vietnam where the minimum wage is well under $1 an hour. The deal has been called “NAFTA on steroids”, referring to the NAFTA trade deal which another Democrat Bill Clinton signed–killing 1 million good manufacturing jobs in this country. So you see, it isn’t only the Republicans’ failed policies like trickle down economics which fail the American people in their quest for prosperity. It’s corporate Democrats like Obama who would rather destroy tons of jobs in order to do whatever the multi-national corporations have paid him to do. And they’d much rather use someone making less than $1 an hour than any greedy American demanding 8 times that amount. In fact, the narrative that we’re fed by the media is that obstructionist Republicans in Congress have blocked all of Obama’s good ideas. Not the TPP–Republicans overwhelmingly joined Obama on this rotten deal as members of the president’s own party broke ranks with him and scratched their heads over how he could be so corrupt and the opposite of his public persona.

You probably won’t have heard much about the TPP. Not only because it’s secret, so Congressmen can’t even take notes on it or make a copy and take that copy out of the room it sits in so that they could openly discuss it. Which is why Obama desperately put his efforts into fast-tracking the vote, meaning they vote on it with very little debate. Which raises the question: If the TPP were as good for American as Obama claims, why the secrecy? And you won’t hear much about the TPP on the news, because our “liberal” news MSNBC is so busy being a cheering squad for even the awful stuff Obama is doing that they fired Ed Schultz, the one union-supporting anchor who dared to hold the president’s feet to the fire on this issue. And say nightly: THIS DOES NOT JIVE WITH THE MAN OF THE PEOPLE YOU CLAIM YOU ARE, MR. PRESIDENT. And more establishment news channels all back the TPP, so he’ll get no flack from them.

But Obama, like everyone who supports the TPP, is pulling a fast one. He knows we’d be horrified by what the TPP would mean for us in terms of job loss, in terms of giving big pharma drug monopolies and even diminishing the sovereignty of the country so that the US could be side by a corporation. Oh yes, your photo-op yesterday presented you as the first president of color who went down to New Orleans after a semblance of order had been restored after 10 years and ate some soul food. Yeah, that means you really care. Obama doesn’t care about anyone who hasn’t bribed him. Minorities hardest hit by the recession will be hardest hit by the jobs we’ll lose if the TPP is passed. And guess what? Hillary Clinton, who called the TPP the “gold standard” of trade agreements a few years ago, is more of the same if not worse. Corporate democrats work for corporations, not the people. There is one presidential candidate who isn’t even taking large donations and who is attracting larger crowds than even media magnet Donald Trump. But let’s not talk about him. No, let’s keep this cycle of politicians from both parties who represent greed and the 1% going unchallenged because it’s easier to form an opinion about Caitlyn Jenner and anchor babies.

LOVE THIS!

GREAT NEWS!

Democrats should be thrilled that Trump is soaring above his GOP competitors. The latest Quinnipiac poll has the odious Trump losing to Hillary, Joe Biden (who isn’t even running) and Bernie Sanders should The Donald receive the Republican nomination. This info should make it a once-in-a-lifetime chance for Democrats to vote their conscience and support a true progressive like Bernie Sanders rather than the corporate hawk Hillary who’s simply stealing Bernie’s ideas on income inequality. So deride Trump all you want–he’s actually a magical gift to Democrats. Even to the timid Democrats who say that they like Bernie’s policies, but they just don’t see him winning. If Trump keeps up his shenanigans and this poll is correct with future polls reflecting the same statistics, we can actually go for a candidate whose vision isn’t borrowed and who’s been pushing the same agenda for decades without the constant policy waffling of Hillary. And unless we get a candidate like Bernie representing the welfare of the 99%, we’ll continue to see the same hard times and shift of wealth up to the 1% which happened under two Bush terms and two Obama terms. Or you can go with bank-funded Hillary to ensure that nothing changes. Want to go for 5 terms of Republican and Democratic presidents who do nothing for the little people even though we’re told that the recession is over and unemployment is down while few are feeling any improvements? Then vote Hillary.
