Addicting Info

Tea Party lunatic Allen West, who lost his bid for reelection  in 2012, is also somewhat of a comedian. On his personal page, allenbwest.com, West posted a rather funny article called the ‘Top 10 Reasons to Vote Democrat in 2014.” The article lays out just what you would expect: liberals are taking your money, liberals want to take your guns, liberals elect activist judges to “rewrite the Constitution”, etc. etc. Very funny, coming from the guy who nearly has a 3:1 lie-to-truth ratio on Politifact. West, who does not shy away from controversy, told his readers that they would “get a kick” out of it. So to our readers, you’ll certainly get a kick, and a sucker punch with this.

10. I’ll vote Republican because even though I’m a woman, I love being told that I shouldn’t be paid equally because of the “free-market.” I also love being told that I’m not allowed contraception, or my legal right to an abortion (but a man can have Viagra and penis pumps no problem).

9. I’ll vote Republican because we must suffer the deaths of 31,000 men, women and children a year in order to preserve the option of assassinating our democratically elected politicians with our guns we bought at Walmart.

8. I’ll vote Republican because I work hard for my money, and nothing makes me happier than my tax dollars going to subsidize Big Oil and the major banks that crashed our economy in 2008. I also love that the Republicans are blaming the “lazy” minority for my economic woes.

7. I’ll vote Republican because I believe a President who gives Americans healthcare is a “terrorist dictator” but a tax-evading rancher in Nevada who uses women as human shields is a “patriot.”

6. I’ll vote Republican because we are the “pro-life” party, even though our deepest cuts go to feeding, housing, clothing, educating and medically treating low-income children, elderly and returning veterans.

5. I’ll vote Republican because rather than admitting our world’s climate is changing, I’ll sit around with my thumb up my butt and deny science so billionaires like the Koch Brothers can pollute the Earth and give more to my campaign.

4. I’ll vote Republican because even though our Founding Fathers have claimed we are not a “Christian Nation,” I still want my Christian faith to dictate who can and cannot get married, what children may learn in public schools, and what holidays may and may not be celebrated in public.

3. I’ll vote Republican because every judge who upholds the right to get married, to get an abortion, or be treated like a decent human being is an “activist judge,” but the judges who allow dirty money to pollute our elections are “freedom-loving.”

2. I’ll vote Republican because I support the gap between the richest and the middle class to widen because our policies only pander to the rich, and then complain that there is “class warfare” against us.

And finally, the number 1 reason I’ll be voting Republican:

1. I’ll vote Republican because I can’t get over the fact that President Obama was democratically elected twice, so I’ll make up a barrage of fake scandals like voter fraud, IRS, Benghazi, Fast and Furious, FEMA camps, to dumb down and inject fear into the GOP base so they don’t see how destructive our policies are.

These are the top 10 reasons why we MUST let the GOP take back the Senate and keep control of the House!

  1. You would vote Republican if your filled with hate & jealousy…. tht you would cut off nose to spite face because you have allowed the propaganda machine, Limbaugh, FOX, Oreilly, Hannutty & the rest, to convince you tht losing your Soc Sec, Medicare as we know it, newly fought for healthcare benefits should & will be revamped or returned to the “for profit” ins & drug companies bottom line of profits….or tht “vaginal probes” should be part of the national discussion…. and your voting rights are being protected by eliminating most of the them……..and you feel an overwhelming desire to protect the 1%’s off shore accounts….. as soon they will “trickled” down a few jobs……

    1. Judy, it is my understanding that the devices formerly referred to as “vaginal probes” are to now be identified by the newly approved description, “Conservative-politician-approved, Medically-contraindicated GOP dildoes.”
      Their use is to never be referred to as “forceable rape”!

    1. Thanks for the video, reasonablyliberal1. I endure manifestations of such attitudes all the time. White people really should be cognizant of what has become quite ordinary. They should also inform each other of these kinds of things and try to express their genuine outrage w/o losing credibility by seeming “unreasonably liberal” for failure to understand and tolerate “acceptable racism.”

      I get the feeling from some of your previous posts that you are “White.” If so, keep up the good work of not being made into a racist idiot. I imagine that has to be quite a challenge in today’s society.

      1. LTL, unless you associate more closely with mixed (“average”) groups of white Americans than is probable, I doubt you can really imagine the often subtle and frequently ‘unrealized’ clues to a person’s (or a group’s) centuries-old exposure to ‘white supremacy’ has left its imprint.

        I wouldn’t be so sure about that, Ted. As one of a very small minority in every post-elementary school, one of 13% of the U.S. population, one exposed to T.V and movies, I would say that I, and African Americans in general, have a far superior knowledge and understanding of White people than vice versa. In fact, that very imbalance has caused too many African Americans to see ourselves through the eyes of European Americans, resulting in that weird phenomenon of many Blacks knowing and staying in their place.

        BTW, if I watch “Morning Joe” it’s to witness “the often subtle and frequently ‘unrealized’ clues to [where] a person’s (or a group’s) centuries-old exposure to ‘white supremacy’ has left its imprint.””

    2. Hi “Reasonably…”
      Thanks for pointing out that video. I saw it a few years ago and I think a reality tv show did a similar experiment. Without question racial profiling seems to be an inherent part of Americana…

    3. It always seemed to me that European whites just don’t have the same “screw you” attitude that American whites do. Many American whites want to get rid of the small social safety net that we do have – often because they think minorities are committing fraud with it. Europeans like their social safety nets because they realize it helps everyone and there may come a day when they need it. Something in the culture made American whites more likely to profile people and be less sympathetic to the poor (of any color) than their European cousins. I think it’s disgraceful.

        That “something” is American racism. Since American Blacks are disproportionately poor (though most poor Americans are White) we lower the level of sympathy felt by most Americans for the poor in general.

  2. LTL, how about the reality show that showed three White kids in a Steak n Shake type restaurant and plotting (aloud) to “dine and dash” (eat and not pay for their food.) No one who heard them reported the plot…they did it and left without incident. Fast forward to three Black kids…same exact scenario…only this time a customer goes to the manager…same concept, same principle as this:

    1. I didn’t see the one involving the “dine and dash.” But I would venture to say most White people, deep inside, just wouldn’t find White kids dining and dashing as offensive as Black kids dining and dashing – and such different feelings, to them, would seem perfectly normal and reasonable. The White kids would be, at worst, stupid, irresponsible rebellious pranksters, while the Black kids would be criminal thugs looking for something for nothing, from a culture of poverty and crime, reflecting badly upon every other Black person in the restaurant or walking down the street. Furthermore, anyone questioning such feelings would be “playing the race card” and “stirring up racial division.”

      Racism is the huge elephant in the American living room. As I’ve said before, as long as there’s a group who are almost by definition and American conditioning considered to be deserving of less, that necessarily lowers the ground floor for what everyone else is entitled to. So White people end up accepting any ol’ bullshit as long as they think they are getting a better deal out of life than the Black guy they see being paid less, out of work, or beaten or shot up by the police.

      1. LTL, without pointing out any specific sentence or phrase, or which of your posts/comments I may be referring to, you are being MUCH too specific. Yet, you complain about white people generalizing and placing themselves ‘above’ people of color.
        Your instances of pissing me off are beginning to accumulate.

        What in the world does that mean?

        “Yet, you complain about white people generalizing and placing themselves ‘above’ people of color.”

        Are you saying I should shut up about it? Are you saying I, myself, generalize about White people? If that’s what you are saying then you are a malicious lying son of a bitch.

        Listen LTL, in all seriousness, We’ve known each other on line for a very long time….long before I created this blog.

        I wrote my comment because I was surprised at Ted’s comment and I needed to reiterate to both of you that we’re all in this together. No one here is the “enemy” as WE define the word. Racist, bigots, homophobes, and the like, are the enemy.

        You guys have some great dialogue with each other 90% of the time. Can we just stay in that 90% zone Ted and LTL?? For the sake of comity and my nerves….LOL

      2. KStreet said “I wrote my comment because I was surprised at Ted’s comment .. ”

        That’s precisely why I phrased my response the way I did. I have never told anyone here “I don’t like the way you post” or “Your instances of pissing me off are beginning to accumulate.” I never felt that I had the right to do so. Ted has said that to me, in some form, repeatedly now. Perhaps he has an inflated opinion of his own views (or maybe his status), to the point where he feels entitled to not only exchange views, but also to to tell others (me, in particular) when to be quiet. He should know, in no uncertain terms, not to try that with me.

        The fact that he felt entitled to speak to me that way in the first place was quite revealing, I would say – as was my response.
