Ron Paul values: Government should stay out of your business…

…unless by ‘business’ you mean ‘uterus.’

That’s right, folks, before you go all googly eyed over Ron Paul, please READ UP on ALL of his stances – he’s decent on Foreign Policy, but he’s pretty uptight when it comes to the Bedroom. Ron Paul wants to repeal Roe v Wade, and he ain’t too fond of gays, either.

And, if you look at exacctly WHY he’s against the Wars, you’ll find that it’s purely for Fiscal Reasons, not for Humanitarian Ones!

He sounds good compared to all the other 1% Republicans, but if you’ve mistakenly assumed that this guy is “sane”…back it up, back it up…do your RESEARCH before you get too excited.

“Ron Paul: he’s been in Congress 31 years.  His theme:  I hate Government.” ~ Bill Maher

MillerCoors told to pull products in Minnesota because of government shutdown

Yet another example of just how great the Republican party is for jobs and business!

MINNEAPOLIS – Minnesota’s state government shutdown is causing a big problem for brewing giant MillerCoors.

The state has told MillerCoors it needs to pull its products from stores, bars and restaurants statewide because of a licensing problem caused by the shutdown.

Department of Public Safety spokesman Doug Neville said Wednesday that MillerCoors’ “brand label registrations” with the state have expired. The employees who process renewals were laid off when state government shut down July 1 in a budget dispute.

Neville says Chicago-based MillerCoors LLC has been told to come up with a plan for pulling its products in a few days.

Keep going, GOP. You’re doing great!

FDR on democracy, fascism, and the growth of private power and America’s business system

Full quote from Time:

“Unhappy events abroad have retaught us two simple truths about the liberty of a democratic people. The first truth is that the liberty of a democracy is not safe if the people tolerate the growth of private power to a point where it becomes stronger than their democratic State itself. That, in its essence, is fascism — ownership of government by an individual, by a group or by any other controlling private power.

“The second truth is that the liberty of a democracy is not safe if its business system does not provide employment and produce and distribute goods in such a way as to sustain an acceptable standard of living. Both lessons hit home. Among us today a concentration of private power without equal in history is growing.”

That was in 1938. Imagine what he’d think about the politics of today, the concentration of private power and Wall Street, the rise and fall of labor unions, and the steadily increasing income gap 73 years later.

Dictator Hair: Is this man's hair any less crazy than that man's hair? - Lewis Black

  • John “Ironsides” Bolton would have gone in [to Libya] with boots on the ground and guns a-blazing the second day of the conflict.
  • GOP Reps. Jim Jordan (OH), Tim Scott (SC), Scott Garrett (NJ), Dan Burton (IN), and Louie Gohmert (TX) have introduced H.R. 1135, which would cut off food stamp benefits to entire families if one adult member engages in a strike.
  • How racist are Arizona Republican State Sen. Lori Klein and Senate President Russell Pearce? This racist.

– Gingrich on March 8: “Exercise a no-fly zone this evening.”

Watch how excited Lewis Black is about Donald Trump as a presidential candidate:

Profit over people: a brief history of corporate concerns

“We can look at the history in this country. Early drug companies argued the bill creating the FDA would “practically destroy the sale of … remedies in the United States.” That didn’t happen. Auto executives predicted that having to install seatbelts would bring the downfall of their industry. It didn’t happen. The President of the American Bar Association denounced child labor laws as “a communistic effort to nationalize children.” That’s a quote.” — President Obama, in an address to the U.S. Chamber of Commerce
