Most of my friends and contacts on Facebook lean to the left or way to the left .... so even though there is some good news, much of it is exposure of some totally insane plan from the Tea Party GOP. Can't stand ObamaCare because it has his name on it, wanna sue Obama for Benghazi or some minor detail of ObamaCare for the 10th time. Bitter unhappy people that are willing to bring the whole economy and government to a standstill rather than find solutions that work.
Since the GOP won't move beyond "get rid of Obama" it's really hard to tell what agenda they would try to follow if elected. The closest I can come is they are afflicted by the Ayn Rand Disease, at least GOP up-and-comer Paul Ryan is hooked. Problem is he didn't see the complete person and her view of Religion as Evil is not go well with the Christian Right. The me-first, trickle down economics may have been what he had in mind.
These me-first, anti-socialism sad examples of humanity are still everywhere but I'm always hoping there will be less and less. One of these jerks really got to me yesterday on a friends blog about a Andrés Manuel López Obrador visit to Melaque. This jerk's reply was -- AMLO is a semi-literate demagogue. I do so wish something unpleasant would happen to him. It's not anti Obama but it's just his ever present nasty negativism that he displays on his Blog as well. This YoYo has been off my Blog Roll for a long time.
I'm the only one who challenged the jerk including the Blog owner so had to have my say here. I hope pier review or a popularity contest wasn't why something wasn't said. So here are a couple of ant-GOP and anti-Rand videos you should enjoy.
