More Forwarded Fun

I just can’t resist these idiotic right wing bits of viral propaganda. This one was titled "Love the T-shirt".

Original Message:
***
To President Obama and all 535 voting members of the Legislature,

It is now official you are ALL corrupt morons:
The US. Post Service was established in 1775. You have had 234 years to get it right and it is broke.
Social Security was established in 1935. You have had 74 years to get it right and it is broke.
Fannie Mae was established in 1938.. You have had 71 years to get it right and it is broke.
War on Poverty started in 1964. You have had 45 years to get it right; $1 trillion of our money is confiscated each year and transferred to "the poor" and they only want more.
Medicare and Medicaid were established in 1965. You have had 44 years to get it right and they are broke.
Freddie Mac was established in 1970. You have had 39 years to get it right and it is broke.
The Department of Energy was created in 1977 to lessen our dependence on foreign oil. It has ballooned to 16,000 employees with a budget of $24 billion a year and we import more oil than ever before. You had 32 years to get it right and it is an abysmal failure.
You have FAILED in every "government service" you have shoved down our throats while overspending our tax dollars AND YOU WANT AMERICANS TO BELIEVE YOU CAN BE TRUSTED WITH A GOVERNMENT-RUN HEALTH CARESYSTEM??

Folks, keep this circulating. It is very well stated. Maybe it will end up in the e-mails of some of our "duly elected' and their staff (they never read anything) will clue them in on how American's feel.

Sanity Adjusted Message:

This should be read and understood by all Americans
(If only most Americans understood what little they DO read...)

Democrats, Republicans, EVERYONE!!

(Now that most of you are Democrats )

To President Obama and all 535 voting members of the Legislature,
(Funny how we never heard you say this during the Bush years.)

The US. Post Service was established in 1775. You have had 234 years to get it right and it is broke.
(My mail ALWAYS goes through. Try putting enough postage stamps on next time.)

Social Security was established in 1935. You have had 74 years to get it right and it is broke.
(It’s not broken. Americans are greatly helped by this. The rich get off with a low cap on their contribution. If we raised their deduction rate to match the rest of us Social Security would be well funded.)


Fannie Mae was established in 1938.. You have had 71 years to get it right and it is broke.

(It was mismanaged, not broken.)

War on Poverty started in 1964. You have had 45 years to get it right; $1 trillion of our money is confiscated each year and transferred to "the poor" and they only want more.
(Where’d you get that number, Sparky? Was it from Rush or FOX? Far more of the public’s tax dollars are transferred into Big Business pockets through corporate welfare, and tax breaks for the rich than ever go to the “greedy” poor. Then there are the unaccountable bottomless pits of no-bid contracts with war profiteers and mercenaries like Halliburton/KBR and Blackwater. Since the right wing “conservatives” have dominated the federal government since 1980, the middle class shrunk and the poverty rate increased. )

Medicare and Medicaid were established in 1965. You have had 44 years to get it right and they are broke.
(If we rolled back the Reagan/Bush tax cuts for the richest one percent these programs would be completely solvent)

Freddie Mac was established in 1970. You have had 39 years to get it right and it is broke.
(It was mismanaged, not broken.)

The Department of Energy was created in 1977 to lessen our dependence on foreign oil. It has ballooned to 16,000 employees with a budget of $24 billion a year and we import more oil than ever before. You had 32 years to get it right and it is an abysmal failure.
(Since Reagan, the Republicans have filled the leadership of this department with oil and energy corporate foxes in the henhouse.)

You have FAILED in every "government service" you have shoved down our throats while overspending our tax dollars.
(Government still works remarkably well considering how American voters have been duped into handing it over to the right wingers who insist government doesn’t work and then proceed to fulfill their promise.)

AND YOU WANT AMERICANS TO BELIEVE YOU CAN BE TRUSTED WITH A GOVERNMENT-RUN HEALTH CARESYSTEM??
(Government doesn’t “run” health care. Doctors, nurses and hospitals do. Government funds health care quite successfully with Medicare and the VA. Ask the beneficiaries if they want to give money to Insurance companies instead.)

Folks, keep this circulating. It is very well stated. Maybe it will end up in the e-mails of some of our "duly elected' and their staff (they never read anything) will clue them in on how American's feel.
(And it will clue them in on how ignorant Americans are letting the right wing propaganda machine stir up their anger towards an administration that has had one year, with total Republican obstruction, to fix things. )

And about that T-shirt you love:

The angry tea-bagger’s T-shirt says: “Jam it down our throats in 2009... We’ll stick it up your ass in 2010.”

Why isn’t he angry with the Republicans for jamming two unfinished wars (one based completely on lies) and a 1.3 TRILLION dollar debt down our throats?

Clinton left a balanced budget WITH a surplus. How much would you bet he doesn’t remember that?

I used to wonder why some claimed the post office didn't work. I have always received my mail without any problems until now. Here in Hot-Lanta we have had problems with mail delivery ever since we moved in. Seems like there is a lazy sub who doesn't finish the route and dumps the rest of the mail in the undeliverable bin. The regular guy is good at delivering mail and will even bring packages to the door (we live in an apartment and the mailbox is small) but when he has a day off our mail suffers. Now I know why some are bitching about the post office. For those that claim the post office doesn't work, they can send stuff UPS or FedEx and pay thru the nose.

Your other corrections (facts) are right-on!! Everyone is intitled to their opinions, but they can't make up their own facts!!!

Kulkuri,
Your last statement is straight from my next post on the Cult of Conservatism: An Anthropological Field Study.

The Post Office is a ramarkably functional system. As we know every large organization suffers from the occasional incompetent idiot factor.

Tom Harper said...

Good responses to the rightwing blitherings. Unfortunately, you used too many big words. Whoever wrote that conservative drivel wouldn't be able to comprehend your answers.

Dave Dubya said...

Tom,
I understand the futility of reasoning with them. Sometimes they need to hear from adults just so they don't get too smug in their self-righteousness. I don't feel bad that they can't comprehend what I say, since they don't even comprehend anything to begin with. A little more confusion won't hurt 'em any more than their Cult beliefs already do anyway.

You are right about them not reading anything that gets sent to them. They admit to voting for or against bills, they haven't read, or complaining the bill is too big to read. The lobbyists read it for them and then point them in which direction to vote.

TomCat said...

Wonderful job here, Dave.

After six years without health care I finally won my SSDI appeal and now have Medicare. I have been so long absent here, because mitigating the damage those years with no care caused has me running to more medical appointments than a blue dog has GOP fleas.

This government run health care is saving my life. Everyone deserves it.

Dave Dubya said...

Holte Ender,
They must be in ignorant bliss to only believe what the authoritarian leaders tell them. How easy can "citizenship" get?

TomCat,
Great news! I am so happy for you. Everyone does deserve it. Amen to that.

TomCat said...

I only hope that the Senate Dems have the stones to go after it.
