Reality: Ron Paul is a Radical Extremist and Little Douche Elf from Texas

Many Emo Progs, Faux Libruls, Whining Moderates, and Window-Licking Libertarians believe that Ron Paul (Elf-Texas) is actually the first coming of Christ because he’s “anti-war”, “pro-weed”, “pro-happy-go-lucky”, etc.   The reality is that Ron Paul  is even more extreme than Bachmann, Perry, and Palin combined.   This reality is difficult for the Paultards to swallow because they have spent too much time swallowing Ron Paul’s Kool-aid…..and any other elf-juice that Paul extrudes.  So, read up on the reality of the little douche elf from Texas:

Ron Paul wants to define life as starting at conceptionbuild a fence along the US-Mexico borderprevent the Supreme Court from hearing cases on the Establishment Clause or the right to privacy, permitting the return of sodomy laws and the like (a bill which he has repeatedly re-introduced)pull out of the UNdisband NATOend birthright citizenshipdeny federal funding to any organisation which “which presents male or female homosexuality as an acceptable alternative life style or which suggest that it can be an acceptable life style” along with destroying public education and social security, and abolish the Federal Reserve in order to put America back on the gold standard. He was also the sole vote against divesting US federal government investments in corporations doing business with the genocidal government of the Sudan.

Oh, and he believes that the Left is waging a war on religion and Christmas, he’s against gay marriageis against the popular voteopposes the Civil Rights Act of 1964wants the estate tax repealedis STILL making racist remarksbelieves that the Panama Canal should be the property of the United States, and believes in New World Order conspiracy theories, not to mention his belief that the International Baccalaureate program is UN mind control.

Americans should recall the many benefits that organized labor have provided our country

 

On this day that is set aside to celebrate the American laborer, Americans should recall the many benefits that organized labor have provided our country (H/T ThinkProgress):

1. Unions Gave Us The Weekend: Even the ultra-conservative Mises Institute notes that the relatively labor-free 1870, the average workweek for most Americans was 61 hours — almost double what most Americans work now. Yet in the late nineteenth century and the twentieth century, labor unions engaged in massive strikes in order to demand shorter workweeks so that Americans could be home with their loved ones instead of constantly toiling for their employers with no leisure time. By 1937, these labor actions created enough political momentum to pass the Fair Labor Standards Act, which helped create a federal framework for a shorter workweek that included room for leisure time.

2. Unions Helped End Child Labor: “Union organizing and child labor reform were often intertwined” in U.S. history, with organization’s like the “National Consumers’ League” and the National Child Labor Committee” working together in the early 20th century to ban child labor. The very first American Federation of Labor (AFL) national convention passed “a resolution calling on states to ban children under 14 from all gainful employment” in 1881, and soon after states across the country adopted similar recommendations, leading up to the 1938 Fair Labor Standards Act which regulated child labor on the federal level for the first time.

3. Unions Won Widespread Employer-Based Health Coverage: “The rise of unions in the 1930′s and 1940′s led to the first great expansion of health care” for all Americans, as labor unions banded workers together to negotiate for health coverage plans from employers. In 1942, “the US set up a National War Labor Board. It had the power to set a cap on all wage increases. But it let employers circumvent the cap by offering “fringe benefits” – notably, health insurance.” By 1950, “half of all companies with fewer than 250 workers and two-thirds of all companies with more than 250 workers offered health insurance of one kind or another.”

4. Unions Spearheaded The Fight For The Family And Medical Leave Act: Labor unions like the AFL-CIO federation led the fight for this 1993 law, which “requires state agencies and private employers with more than 50 employees to provide up to 12 weeks of job-protected unpaid leave annually for workers to care for a newborn, newly adopted child, seriously ill family member or for the worker’s own illness.”

A Day in the Life of Joe Conservative’s World

A Day in the Life of Joe Conservative’s World

Joe Conservative wakes up in the morning and goes to the bathroom.  Joe is a middle aged, overweight,     evangelical Christian and, is the king  of his castle (a small single-wide mobile home).  He flushes his toilet and brushes his teeth, mindful that each flush & brush costs him about 43 cents to his privatized water provider. His wacky, liberal neighbor keeps badgering the company to disclose how clean and safe their water is, but no one ever finds out. Just to be safe, Joe  boils his drinking water. He doesn’t know that boiling water will only kill germs. It won’t remove the mercury and other pollutants that seeped into the aquifer from the mining operations, refineries and the nearby nuclear plant.

Joe steps outside and coughs. The pollution is especially bad today. Corporate lobbyists for the auto industry convinced their representatives that clean air regulations would hurt the factories by cutting into their profits. Catalytic converters were expensive and a waste of materials. The cars that pollute the most are the cheapest, so everyone buys them. Joe checks to make sure he has enough toll money for the 3 different private roads he must drive to work. There is no public transportation, so traffic is backed up and his 10 mile commute takes an hour. Joe is nearly out of gas. At 15 dollars a gallon, it’s hard to fill the tank.

On the way, he drops his 12 year old daughter off at the clothing factory she works at. There are no child labor laws because everyone needs to  pull their own weight and contribute to society.  Paying for kids to go to private school until they’re 18 is a luxury besides, Joe needs to keep the extra income coming in. Times are hard and there are no social safety nets. There are no public schools either so, a basic education is something only for the rich. Read more of this post
