Being an old white man myself, I know that of which I speak.
Phil Gramm steps down after 'whiners' comment
Yeah, I'm sure he's right.
There isn't anything wrong with America.
It's just all of those middleclass, liberal, intellectual, anti-war "whiners" who have to choose between gas money or food who are dragging the country down with their talk of "lies" and "war dead".
If they would just shut the fuck up and let the christofascist, right-wing, Captains of Industry get on with the business of raping the middle east to line their own pockets, the world would be so much safer!
Let them torture innocent civilans in secret and illegal prisons, holding people for years without ever being charged with a crime.
Let them conduct warrantless searches of American's emails via spy satellites that OUR TAX DOLLARS PAY FOR.
Let them listen in on our phone conversations with the cooperation of the telcoms whose bills we pay every month and who are now immune from prosecution for illegally violating our privacy.
Let them monitor and record our public comings and goings via street cams.
Let them look over our shoulders in public libraries by giving them access to records about who checks out what and for how long.
We would all be SO MUCH SAFER if we just let the government monitor everything that everybody does all the time!
This from The Republicans who claim to want less government.
They only want "less government" when it comes to regulating the greed of capitalists.
They want AS MUCH GOVERNMENT AS THEY CAN POSSIBLY GET when it comes to regulating what individuals can say and do in the privacy of their own homes and bedrooms, what women can do with their own reproductive system, and to what level The People can criticize those in power.
The Republicans and their conservative, right wing, religous allies are finished.
They have destroyed themselves with their arrogance.
