“And you can swallow… Or you can spit… You can throw it up… Or choke on it…”
Dear Swallowers of the Bullshit,
As our country’s louder conservative mouthpieces continue to push certain fictitious statements, it’s becoming more and more evident that President Obama’s critics – both famous and anonymous – are willing to believe any / all lies they are told. These smears and lies about our President, and liberals in general, will no longer be tolerated.
Time to dispel a few myths and set the record straight with hard facts.
1). The financial mess our nation is currently in is President Obama’s fault…
No, it’s not. President Obama is partly to blame, due to his choice in financial clowns like Timothy Geithner and Larry Summers. But the economic meltdown has been brewing since Ronald Reagan let Donald Regan lead him around our financial institutions by the short-hairs. The irresponsibility (also known as deregulation) continued through Bush Sr., Clinton, Bush Lite, and now President Obama. It isn’t unions, NPR, Planned Parenthood, George Clooney, or mid-western teachers who are to blame for our economic woes: it’s corporations who don’t pay their fair share of taxes, and companies who manipulate the housing market; and big banks that allow predatory lending; and our nation’s wealthiest rigging the financial game so that they remain on top while the rest of us back-slide into a quagmire of poverty and despair-reeking shit. Oh, and it’s also the dickhead politicians on both sides who do their corporate master’s bidding (see Sen. Chris Dodd and Gov. Scott Walker for examples).
2). The political lies and inflammatory rhetoric is on both sides equally…
No, it’s not. Equating the statements between Rush Limbaugh and Sean Hannity with the statements of Rachel Maddow and Lawrence O’Donnell is utter crap. Maddow and O’Donnell actually reference facts and use things like proof, whereas Limbaugh and Hannity use oxycontin and spoiled little bored pranksters like James O’Keefe. The number of idealogues is far greater on the right than the left. For every Keith Olbermann giving his opinion, there’s a Beck, Malkin, Bachmann, Palin, Grumpy, Dopey, and Sneezy on the other side.
3). Conservatives & Tea Party folk are more patriotic the Liberals…
No, they’re not. Drinking piss-flavored beer like Coors Light and watching NASCAR in hopes of witnessing twenty cars pile on top of each other like some video clip from Tampa Bukkake.com doesn’t make you love America more than anyone else. Patriotism isn’t only about words; it’s about actions. Liberals from every state – plus Hawaii – serve their country through the armed forces, as well as volunteer to help fellow Americans from California to Maine and Minnesota to Texas. Conservatives talk a big game, but Liberals do as much, if not more, of the “heavy lifting.” Screaming in favor of the 2nd Amendment while you simultaneously write-off several other Amendments as “Liberal causes” doesn’t actually make you a scholar of our Constitution. If you’re gonna claim to love America, then you have to love and help out more Americans than who are in your personal demographic.
Anyway, feel free to keep swallowing the bullshit you’re being fed – just remember you’re choosing to do it. You’re saying yes, “I like to swallow…”
