Lately the hot topic in the news is that residents from a good majority of our states have now started on-line petitions requesting secession. Specifically these petitioners are asking to “Peacefully grant the State of [state name] to withdraw from the United States of America and create its own NEW government.” When I first caught wind of this story, I laughed loud and I laughed long. Naturally my first thought was a bunch of far right tea-bag conservatives – and racists – are throwing some pretty big tantrums and being a bunch of poor losers. And most of the people who are signing these petitions probably fall into that category. However, I just read an article posted on CBS News that explains some petitions have a bit of a different angle to this whole secession deal.

Why America Needs A Bigger Stronger Federal Government & A Smaller Weaker State Government


By Jueseppi B.

 

 

 

 

 

Local state government has proven since the 2010 mid term elections that they are idiots ruled by racist, sexist, homophobic and down right stupid ideas. Outdated and anarchic ideas.

 

Abortion rights are being removed on state levels. Voting rights are being tampered with on state levels. Women’s health care issues are being challenged and ignored as well as de-funded on state levels. The U.S. Constitution is being tested by those who are leaders in the state houses and by state Governors.

 

America now has close to 40 states who have filed petitions to secede from The United States because Barack Hussein Obama was re-elected as President of the United States of America. POTUS Obama won the electoral college vote AND the popular vote, a clear mandate to govern. Yet, America has idiots in 40 states insisting that because their caucasian candidate was NOT acceptable for the majority of Americans, they want to secede.

 

The TeaTardedRepubliCANTS and the GOPretenders have cried forever how a smaller and less intrusive government is needed to prevent meddling in everyday lives. Conselfishservatives say smaller federal government is what the economy needs. Smaller government is how to preserve liberties and freedoms.

 

Thats all a lie. Untrue. False. Bull feces.

 

America is and will always be a better nation because the federal government cares, helps and gets involved. For instance, Hurricane Sandy devastated America. FEMA is a federal agency. Without FEMA, the east coast would be no more, as would any and all American states hit by any natural disaster.

 

Social Security, Unemployment Insurance, Disability Benefits, TANF, WIC, Student Loan Programs are all federal government’s involvement in our everyday lives. Small Business Loans, The FDA, The USDA, The SEC, are all government agencies that the GOPretenders want to repeal and do away with.

 

Willard Mitt Romney, if he had been elected, would have gutted the United States government of all the agencies and turned them over to “private business”, such as Bain Capital. It’s obvious, according to election results, that the Mitt Romney way of government was not acceptable to America.

 

It’s time to remove power from the state level, it’s time to give power over America’s 50 United States to The Federal Government, and not half crazed racist sexist homophobic elected state level morons who believe that secession, based on losing the general election, is a good idea.

 

The U.S. Constitution clearly provides for succession:

Secession in the United States can refer to secession of a state from the United States, secession of part of a state from that state to form a new state, or secession of an area from a city or county.

Attempts at or aspirations of secession from the United States have been a feature of the country’s politics since its birth. Some have argued for a constitutional right of secession and others for a natural right of revolution. “The United States Supreme Court ruled unilateral secession unconstitutional” while commenting that revolution or consent of the states could lead to a successful secession.

 

If, as an American citizen, you don’t like the results of the general election, where the majority has ruled AND spoken…..pack  up your double-wide trailer, hitch it to your Camaro, your Pick-Up Truck or your Trans-Am and drive to China and get one of Bain Capital’s outsourced jobs working for $1.23 an hour. And you won’t have to bitch about universal mandated health care cause there ain’t none in China. Or you could move to Mexico,  (no mandated universal health care there either), or the Sudan, ( you guessed it, no mandated universal health care here as well), and be happy under regimes that will appreciate your presence.

 

Americans needs more federal government involvement in our everyday lives. We benefit from a strong and powerful federal government especially in times of need and disaster. As long as working safeguards are kept in place to prevent misuse of government power by corrupt elected officials, American government is a great good thing.

 

Americans should NOT have to worry, stress over or be concerned with stupid local state governments filing petitions to secede, or filing useless lawsuits challenging ObamaCares, (The Affordable Health Care Act), NOR should Americans be bothered with states denying marriage equality, the right to vote, the right to health care for women, the right to choose abortion, the right to decide for yourselves when and how you live your private lives.

 

Americans should not have to move from one state to another state because they are not wanted, appreciated or provided basic human and civil rights that the U.S. Constitution provides for ALL Americans, in ALL 50 states.

 

This Is The UNITED States Of America. NOT The United States Of Confusion & Discord.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

“Disagree Intelligently, Use The Facts & Truth™”

 

 

It’s A Mandate…..Stupid.


By Jueseppi B.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Obama Won, Get Over It

 

Susan Milligan is a political and foreign affairs writer and contributed to a biography of the late Sen. Edward M. Kennedy, Last Lion: The Fall and Rise of Ted Kennedy.

 

One would think that with re-election—by an Electoral College landslide, notably—people would finally accept that President Barack Obama is the leader of the country. But still, despite the failed efforts of the birthers and Donald Trump and everyone else who just couldn’t imagine that a majority of voters said Obama should be president, the efforts to discredit Obama persist.

 

 

Almost immediately after Obama was re-elected (becoming only the fifth president in U.S. history to win a majority, and not just a plurality, of the popular vote twice), the self-anointed realists declared that Obama had no “mandate.” Never mind those 332 Electoral College votes, never mind the fact that he managed to win re-election despite residual racism and a general unhappiness with the slowness of the economic recovery.

 

 

It was deemed that because Obama won by just three percentage points in the popular vote, that he somehow had no right to assume he had earned the authority to lead. This argument is especially remarkable when one considers the comments made by disgraced former House Majority Leader Tom DeLay, who said after the GOP had taken majorities in both chambers under President George Bush that since the Republicans controlled the White House, the House, and the Senate, “we control the agenda.” Not much room there for cross-party compromise.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

In remarks on the Senate floor, the top Republican in that chamber argues against a mandate for President Barack Obama after his reelection last week.

 

 

 

“In politics, there is always a temptation among those who win office to think they have a mandate to do what they will,” McConnell will say, according to prepared remarks. “But it’s important to remember that in this case the voters also re-elected a Republican-controlled House last week, and a closely divided Senate. And in a government of three equal branches, that’s hardly irrelevant. Most people may focus on the White House, but the fact is, the government is organized no differently today than it was after the Republican wave of 2010.”

 

 

The top Senate Republican contends that Americans are “wary” of what Obama might do in a second term. “Look out across the heartland, and you’ll see vast regions of the country wary of the President’s vision for the future. The country is sharply divided about the right path forward.  If the President wants to unite America, as he has always claimed to, if he truly realizes that he was elected to represent all of its citizens, not just the ones who voted to give him a second term last Tuesday … then he’ll seek the common ground he avoided so strenuously in his first term. That’s his task. That’s the duty that comes with being President.”

 

 

 

 

 

 

Mitch McConnell is a fool, an idiot, a moron and a flaming racist ass. That’s a fact. 332 electoral votes for POTUS Obama against 206 electoral votes for Willard Romney.

 
States Carried: POTUS Obama-26 + D.C.  Romney-24

 
Popular vote totals: 62,307,405 (50.6%) Votes for POTUS Obama……..58,938,376 (47.8%) Votes for Willard Romney.

 

 

Thats a mandate all day long…..Stupid.

 

 

Turns Out Romney Is the 47 Percent Candidate

 

John Nichols

 

The 2012 election produced more than its share of ironic results, but there is one that will stand above all others: Mitt Romney is the candidate of 47 percent of the American electorate.

 

As the long count of ballots cast in last Tuesday’s presidential election nears completion, Barack Obama’s popular-vote margin over Romney continues to expand. The Democratic president’s percentage of the vote has been steadily rising. As this has happened, his Republican challenger’s percentage has fallen.

 

Whereas on election night conservative commentators could speak of the finish to the long and bitter campaign as “almost a tie,” Obama now has a 3.4 million popular-vote, and 50.57 percent of the total.

 

Romney has drifted down to… 47.84 percent.

 

President Obama Friday claimed an election mandate to raise the richest Americans’ taxes before across-the-board hikes push the country back into recession next year.

 

“I’m not wedded to every detail of my plan. I’m open to compromise,” Obama said in the East Room of the White House.

 

“But I refuse to accept any approach that isn’t balanced. I am not going to ask students and seniors and middle-class families to pay down the entire deficit while people like me making over $250,000 aren’t asked to pay a dime more in taxes,” he said.

 

America has never been about what can be done for us. It’s about what can be done by us, together, through the hard and frustrating but necessary work of self-government. That’s the principle we were founded on.

 

~ President Barack Obama, November 7, 2012~

 

 

Sounds like a mandate to me.

 

Let’s not forget…..It’s Still Barack’s House.

Banana Soufflé


When life gives you bananas, make soufflés, right? I think that’s how the saying goes. Oh well, either way. These Banana Soufflés are light and fluffy (and require good timing).

The hardest part is whisking the egg whites until they get some nice, soft peaks. You can do it though, just throw some extra elbow grease into it.

Ingredients:

  • 2 firm, ripe bananas (mashed)
  • 1 TBSP unsalted butter, melted
  • 5 TBSP sugar
  • 1 egg yolk
  • 3 egg whites
  • Juice of 1/2 a lime
  • Pinch of salt

Banana Souffle

Caution! Serve immediately or these soufflés will shrivel quickly.


Directions:

  1. Preheat the oven to 400°.
  2. Brush four 1-cup ramekins with melted butter. Add 2 tablespoons of the sugar to one of the ramekins and rotate it to coat with sugar. Tap the excess sugar into another ramekin. Repeat until all the ramekins are coated with sugar.
  3. In a food processor, puree the…

Great post Ms. Jennie Sue. Thank you.

To begin looking at the actually case studies coming out of New England and Minnesota, first, we need to look at the overall data.  The Center for Economic and Policy Research released a study, “The Wage Penalty for State and Local Government Employees” in 2010 that discussed the actual earnings of state and local workers versus private sector workers when controls were used for age, education, ethnicity, experience, gender, and disability.

The CEPR study found that while public sector employees appear at face value to earn more than their private counterparts, in reality, they earn less.  50% of state and local workers have a 4-year college degree, compared to only 30% of private workers.  State and local employees also tend to be on average 4 years older than their counterparts; and are in majority female – 60% to the private sector’s 46%.

What this all boils down to is when…
