A Letter to the GOP Nincompoops and Media Punditheads that insist on giving coverage to their Tantrums and Snitfits.....


Have you not noticed that this Country is in Serious Trouble ? We the People are in a Deep Recession that at this point is daily producing MORE and More Job Losses...and Families Struggling...Families are STRUGGLING trying to juggle FOOD versus FUEL versus MEDS.....People are Hurting....I often think watching the Talking Heads and the Repug Leaders, ARE YOU CLUELESS ??? Have you seen people counting change to buy Food ? Have you seen people buy firewood, so that they can turn their heat off ? Have you seen old women buy gloves to wear INSIDE their homes ? I am sick of Watching RICH White Men in $2000 Dollar Suits WHINE on my TV....Get off MY TV and Get to work damnit....People are Starving and out of Work....and HURTING.....

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Repugs YOU LOST in November,and we have a NEW President and New Administration that are trying to Clean UP the Titannical MESS Bush and his Corrupt Criminal Cronies have done to this Country....It's time for YOU to listen to the New President and FOLLOW the NEW Leader... Did you hear Obama explain today that WE Don't have a MOMENT to Spare ? Did you see his face ? He was deadly serious .....Time is of the Essence.....There is Money in this Package for Jobs, for Students to continue their education, and yes, for Healthcare, for MediCaid for States that are running out, for Mass Transit Repair and Buildups ( that are sorely needed ).......We The People do not have Time for YOUR Snitfits in Swanky Suits....and we Sent DC a Message on November 4th Loud and Clear.....

And to the Media, WHY are you giving them ALL of this AIRTIME ? and Interviews ? Did you bother to interview Democratic Leaders about Economic Mess and Agony last year ? NO. Did You cover ANY of the Criminal Corruption that led to this Mess ? Did you INVESTIGATE Any of the Swindling or Lack of Oversight that led to this MESS ? No. Do we need to send ALL of you to Journalism School to Cover this Economic Crisis ? You are as inept at covering this as you were at Covering the Rest of the Bush Crimes and Misdemeanors and Even the WMD Lies and the Iraq War....You are damn Lucky that Bloggers Read and Write and Research Incessantly ( and yeah that Whack is specifically for Chris Matthews....) And since when is Boehner an Economic Expert ? He does NOT even realize HOW much his OWN state of Ohio is in Economic Agony because he is too busy redoing his damn tan and listening to himself preach.....He and Kantor are Out of touch with HOW much their own people are suffering. 100,000 people have been pink slipped this week, and yeah some are in Ohio and Virginia.Holy hell , some are probally even Republican.

And to the Media, do read about the Lupoe Family in California and how Financial Agony made this family that lost BOTH jobs decided that Death was their ONLY option ....Only Solution.....THAT is HOW Bad things are.....Reality is Hitting Families in this Country.....We Need the Media to WAKE up, the Bush Propaganda Era to End....We are no Longer in a Recession, we are in a Damn Depression...Manmade by the Previous Administration, Stop Enabling the Thugs....We have TOO Much Work to do...and Things to Fix...We are Out of Time.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
In November George was sent packing, BUT so was the Rethug Machine...( video thank you annette).."Hit the Road Jack"...we can ALWAYS send MORE Repugs packing...No problem....we don't need More Obstructionists....or Criminals....at this point we all have been Katrinaed...that's a fact.

For the Media THIS Message from Aretha...."THINK" ( from 1990 interview with Dave Letterman)

My apologies dear gentle readers....I am home sick with another cold ( and 18 inches of fresh snow)....watching too much cable...and fed up....Do read the article linked to the title...it is more succinct...the tragic story about the Lupoe Family and WHY their murder suicide was finance/job related is in the post below...

I am home sick, too, and after watching non-stop GOP whining all day on the news, I found your post just what the doctor ordered!

Beyond the incessant coverage, what's bothering me is the GOP "leadership" (gag) complaining about money being spent for this or that program vs jobs. Are they so stupid they cannot see that programs = jobs? Can they not grasp, for instance, that spending money on child-care programs enable poorer people to work, not to mention the child care providers themselves having jobs? Oh that's right, they all have nannies and expensive prep schools for their kids.

And they're complaining about throwing money at Amtrack "which hasn't earned a profit in 40 years". WTHF? They can't see the jobs it will generate to update our only national passenger rail system? That's in addition to providing alternative transportation for many people who do not have access to cars or simply want to support public transportation that makes sense.

Are the effing blind as well as stupid? (sorry, I am very pissed off at this point)

Starbucks to Cut 6,700 Jobs After Earnings Fall 69% (Update1)
Email | Print | A A A

By Courtney Dentch

Jan. 28 (Bloomberg) -- Starbucks Corp., the world’s largest chain of coffee shops, said it will cut 6,700 jobs and close 300 more stores after reporting first-quarter profit that fell more than analysts estimated.

The company plans to close 200 stores in the U.S. and 100 overseas, in addition to the 600 the company said it would close last year. The workforce reduction will eliminate 6,000 café positions and 700 corporate jobs, the Seattle-based company said today in a statement.

Chief Executive Officer Howard Schultz warned in December that Starbucks’ profit would be less than analysts’ estimates at the time as sales in established stores worsened in November. Customers pinched by job losses and falling home prices are cutting back on premium coffee. The firings and closings announced today further accelerate Schultz’s plan to trim expenses.

“The slowdown in traffic is reflective of less frequent customer visitation patterns due to the economy,” Sharon Zackfia, an analyst with William Blair & Co. in Chicago, wrote in a Jan. 26 note. She rates Starbucks “outperform.”

The coffee seller in July said it would close 600 company- operated stores in the U.S. and 61 shops in Australia. The move slashed 12,000 café positions, although about 70 percent of workers were able to transfer to nearby locations, resulting in about 3,600 jobs lost.

Net income dropped 69 percent to $64.3 million, or 9 cents a share, from $208.1 million, or 28 cents, a year earlier, the company said in the statement. Sales fell 5.5 percent to $2.6 billion in the period ended Dec. 28.

Excluding some items, profit was 15 cents a share. The average of 16 analyst estimates compiled by Bloomberg was for profit of 17 cents a share on sales of $2.71 billion. The company doesn’t give quarterly forecasts.

Some Folks really need to READ the bill before they condemn it- it is very different than the damn Bailout...

Annette said...

Yep.. not a single one .. what a bunch of ass wipes... I am afraid they have sealed their fates..

Annette said...

Buying new computers isn't stimulus?? Why is spending money, putting money into companies like Microsoft.. who just laid off how many people.. a stimulus???

enigma4ever said...

working on infrastructure- like roads and bridges- with american steel- that is NOT a stimulus ?????

medic-aid for newly un employed ????omg..unreal....

Pell Grants so students can continue their education- there are NO bank loans - atleast here for students...so that would mean MORE unemployed....

there are many states that are facing crisis trying meet their budgets and pay State employees....and programs from health to education to salting the roads....

Annette said...

They are just idiots.. total idiots..

D.K. Raed said...

Anon-Paranoid said...

enigma my sweet rose...

I really hate to say this since I'm not a hateful person, however in the case of Republican Fascist Nazi's I'll go ahead anyway.

Every time I hear Cantor, Boehner or McConnell open their Nazi mouths I pray that someone will walk into their offices and do to them what that Republican Fascist Nazi did to the Arkansas DNC Chairperson.

It appears that the only way to restore our Constitution and begin removing the Blood Stains off of it is too remove these Nazi's from the face of this Earth.

Every single last one of them.

And least we forget Rush Joseph Goebbels)Limbaugh his protege's Hannity, Beck and all the other Fascist Propagandists on the air waves.

Send them all to Hell and take our country back.

God Bless.

enigma4ever said...

Anon P:::
I hope that their people in their states call and give them hell...I am posting Boner 's Numbers later...and Cantor...I am sick of their greedy ignorant ways....have faith...Obama KNOWS how bad things are...he is trying to take us in a better path....and save us...hang in there..have faith....

and hope..

I still do..
even though I am good and pissed....
I trust Obama...

enigma4ever said...

BTW anonp...
this is not about hatred- these asswipes are ignorant and hateful....and they don't give a shit about the people in this country...

but I believe in Karma..and karma takes care of things...esp when people act selfishly...and without heart..and are not mindful....they should be ashamed of themselves...

Beach Bum said...

Been hearing the rethugs talk about the runaway deficit and how President Obama will be adding to it. Let me think for a moment...after a little over two hundred years various presidents were able to dig a national debt of six trillion dollars. Bush comes into office and almost doubles the debt all by himself and now with the country falling apart they get concerned about spending. I need a drink.

Annette said...

I went a little crazy and ranted at my place....lol check out the new video I put up called Born Again American.. it is good.. not religious even if it sounds like it.. very cool...

enigma4ever said...

thanks Annette...will definently be over..Bob Cesna's place is on fire with anger too...in a good way...

Beach Bum...so what are we drinking tonight- open one for me will ya ???

( yeah- like the repugs give a shit about the Debt THEY helped create with Bush.... a hole clear to China damnit....and like they give a rats ass about ANYONE's kids......and about "budgets" , they could not even balance their own checkbook....idiots...)

tom said...

When will Obama get angry?
When will he tell the Republicans to go fuck themselves?
THEY just told him to go fuck himself......
Pissed off DEM members of the house over all the reaching across the aisle, all we got was a smacking from those fools, listen, the wooden ship of state is on fire and leaking badly, you would think they would want to pull together in the same fucking direction.....
I HOPE that Mr. HOPE wakes up and kicks some ass
THEN we can fix the economy....

enigma4ever said...

tom...
we need him to kick some ass....time is running out....things here in Ohio are beyond bad....and I know other states are also hurting...these fucking Repugs are trying to cripple us...kill us...starve us...Fuck 'em...

but he plays Chess..and poker....he has played only part of his hand...I suspect things are about to get interesting....very.

Fran said...

So the rethugs just NOW notice there is a $10.6 trillion dollar debt? They did not notice it when they approved the $6 trillion for war, or the $700 billion bailout?

Time to take names & kick ass!

Oregon finally got rid of Gordon Smith- the repug asswipe who did a grandstand speech against the war & then turned around & give the shrub every war dime (billions) he asked for.

When elections come around in 2010, these uncooperative ones need to get their asses kicked to the curb.


Can we officially rename Boehner- Bonehead?
It's easier to pronounce.

That job loss murder.suicide should be a wake up call.

P.S. I heart Aretha!

enigma4ever said...

Bonehead it is..and yes, you are right on all counts...time for some asses to the curb...
