There's Blood In The Water

Bryan Dubois
Sep 5, 2010

Who here doesn't believe there will be a Democratic blood-letting in November?

They're giving up on their most vulnerable.  (In keeping with the party's ideals.)

The left is hopelessly out of touch.  

They insult the opposition by calling them "teabagging rednecks" and their most blind faithful still believe that holding the current suicidal course is the way to go.

The beautiful thing about this situation is that a Democrat's only chance to hold onto their office is to distance themselves from the radical agenda of Obama - which weakens the president.  Not that he needed any help with that - it's just easier for the average person to admit the emporer has no clothes when the president isn't surrounded by nodding Democrats blindly and unquestioningly supporting his agenda.  The supporters in office are dwindling - and the average Joe is questioning what Obama is doing for him.

Meanwhile the right is rallying...

November will be most entertaining...

 What's interesting is that the few Democrats that actually voted against Obamacare and the stimulus are speaking out LOUDLY over the fact that they did. Not a good sign at all for the DNC in general. Barring anything catastrophic (let's hope they don't gin up another phony crisis) November will indeed be a very interesting political spectacle to watch.

The Dems in the most trouble are the ones who sided with the Repubs. The Dems will lose some seats, always happens the election following a Prez election. But when the voters actually get in the booth they will stop and think, do I really want to go back to the Bush era? Job loses, wage cuts, outsourcing, eliminating Social Security and Medicare. So don't count your chickens before they hatch.

 

Repubs have ........ GW Bush economics.

 Can we get people involved in politics who have no desire to make it a career. People willing to serve their country for 4 years and then return to their normal lives. That's the model our country was founded on. How refreshing that would be.

To think otherwise is wishful thinking.   The Dems would like to change the debate but: This is a referundum on Mr. Obama and his big govt. policies.   The independent voter put Mr. Obama in the WH and the independent voter increasingly is voting against him.   This is a congressional mid-term election. The voters should ask themselves:   Since 1933, when many of the liberal socialist policies were begun under FDR, the Dems have held the House of Representatives 79% of the time and the Senate for 74%.   Tax and spend while borrowing and printing the difference is what helped to land our economy in this fiscal and financial mess and a bigger dose of more of the same will get us out?   Using even more of the same discredited economic theories out of the 1930s is ludicrous.   It’s a time to vote against more of the same social and economic lunacy that our country has unfortunately experienced for many of the past 77 years.     That odor you smell - that's Dem fear.

Brutus, I won't be waiting 'til I get into the voting booth to make up my mind. I've already thought about whether or not I really want to go back to the policies and programs of President George W. Bush, and the answer is no. No, I don't. But I really, REALLY don't want to stay the course with President Barack Hussein Obama's policies and programs!

I hate voting for the lesser evil because the lesser evil is still evil. But sometimes when the greater evil is THAT much greater, the choice is made a little easier.

Meanwhile, I dream of outsider's scenario where PROFESSIONAL politicians are a thing of the past, and those who SERVE and then go back to work at a REAL job are the men and women running the country. Hey, if nothing else, they'll at least have had some connection with the real world before trying to make decisions that affect it, something Obama and a whole boatload of his cronies can't claim!

brutus smith

 Funny, those Dem policies worked until 1980. Hmmmmm. Solidarity winnie, Socialist Solidarity.

brutus smith

 sam a, as long as there is big money in politics, the changes you seek will never happen. And the Supreme Court solidified that there will be big money in our elections for years to come.

Come on you crybaby liberals, it is definitely time for you to begin the campaign of voter FRAUD again.  WHY aren't you deploying all your ACORN freaks out to CHEAT again?  It appears even that will not help you save your precious liberal agenda.  I am so impressed with 0bama care, stimulus failure one and now soon to be stimulus failure two.  In fact the majority of this NATION must be too.  Ha! Ha!  I know YOU think the "anointed" one is NOT spending enough for you UNION losers and everyone in the "freeloaders club" of entitlements.  "Duh, wheres bees my cut?"  Ha! Ha!  Yes, even a liberal democrack poll for the liberal state of Ohio who VOTED for hope and change would rather have G. W. Bush BACK.  Now that surely says a lot for who the Sandusky Register recommended for president.  Hey, SR how does all that "hope you can believe in" feel to you?  Do you have the "pulse" of your readership yet or are you STILL in denial?  Because of the 0bama administration, we are taking legal action against certain states and allowing others a free pass.  How about the socialist PREACHING about fiscal responsibility during his teleprompter speech in February, 2009 and then GIVING hamas close to one BILLION dollars of taxpayer money?  How does THAT feel liberals?  Feel good yet?  And how much would a Billion (One BILLION = 1,000 MILLION) do for YOU??  So WHO is funding TERRORISM?  Oops, it is now called liberal man caused disasters.  Ha! Ha!  I can see members of the socialist and communist regime are jumping ship and all the liberal democracks who VOTED for the distruction of America are now RUNNING from the "anointed" one.  WHO is fainting now??  You UNION idiots need to get together and bus yourselves along with your signs and begin campaigning for the democracks.  Here is tip.  KEEP your pension money turned into political support.  Conservatives and Republicans do NOT want it.  Ha! Ha!  How about people across the nation being told they can NOT fly the American (That is Stars and Stripes for you liberals) flag because it "might" be offensive?  Haven't heard about ALL those stories yet?  Keep reading and watching liberal news.  According to all you losers, everything is just peachy.  I present to you the total reason why a nation will soon turn right and also the Worse Single Term President in the HISTORY of the United States of America.  Ha! Ha!

Let us hope that if there is any Democratic bloodletting in November, that it stays in Northern Ohio, particulairly from Erie County to Cuyahoga County, where there deserves to be change.  My apologies to Chrissy Hines -Way to Go OHIO.  We must rid ourselves of the corruption, before we can go forward with bi or tri-party programs that benefit all of us.  We can stand together, or fall as one.  Believe it or not, the world will still be here after all of us are long gone.  Hopefully it will be a better one with LIBERTY AND JUSTICE FOR ALL.  (NO PLEA DEALS)

The Danger of American Fascism

Henry A. Wallace
An article in the New York Times, April 9, 1944.

From Henry A. Wallace, Democracy Reborn (New York, 1944), edited by Russell Lord, p. 259.

Still another danger is represented by those who, paying lip service to democracy and the common welfare, in their insatiable greed for money and the power which money gives, do not hesitate surreptitiously to evade the laws designed to safeguard the public from monopolistic extortion. American fascists of this stamp were clandestinely aligned with their German counterparts before the war, and are even now preparing to resume where they left off, after "the present unpleasantness" ceases:

The symptoms of fascist thinking are colored by environment and adapted to immediate circumstances. But always and everywhere they can be identified by their appeal to prejudice and by the desire to play upon the fears and vanities of different groups in order to gain power. It is no coincidence that the growth of modern tyrants has in every case been heralded by the growth of prejudice. It may be shocking to some people in this country to realize that, without meaning to do so, they hold views in common with Hitler when they preach discrimination against other religious, racial or economic groups. Likewise, many people whose patriotism is their proudest boast play Hitler's game by retailing distrust of our Allies and by giving currency to snide suspicions without foundation in fact.

The American fascists are most easily recognized by their deliberate perversion of truth and fact. Their newspapers and propaganda carefully cultivate every fissure of disunity, every crack in the common front against fascism. They use every opportunity to impugn democracy. They use isolationism as a slogan to conceal their own selfish imperialism. They cultivate hate and distrust of both Britain and Russia. They claim to be super-patriots, but they would destroy every liberty guaranteed by the Constitution. They demand free enterprise, but are the spokesmen for monopoly and vested interest. Their final objective toward which all their deceit is directed is to capture political power so that, using the power of the state and the power of the market simultaneously, they may keep the common man in eternal subjection.

Several leaders of industry in this country who have gained a new vision of the meaning of opportunity through co-operation with government have warned the public openly that there are some selfish groups in industry who are willing to jeopardize the structure of American liberty to gain some temporary advantage. We all know the part that the cartels played in bringing Hitler to power, and the rule the giant German trusts have played in Nazi conquests. Monopolists who fear competition and who distrust democracy because it stands for equal opportunity would like to secure their position against small and energetic enterprise. In an effort to eliminate the possibility of any rival growing up, some monopolists would sacrifice democracy itself.

Sounds like today doesn't it.

Jonathan Beck

Will someone please start a topic. "When high school graduates are allowed to become our thought leaders, what will become of this country"   Please be very carefull as to what you read.  If the author has no credentials or real life experience, they can not have much credability.  Especially if they have sacrificed the truth for fifteen thosand dollars and let an innocent person go to jail.  I would like to hear a few answers to the basic questions of truth and honesty.

Chung Lee

Mr. Beck you seem to get pretty personal but Chung Lee agree with you and also wonder how a person without any credentials or an original thought can write a pathetic column in the Register?  Chung Lee think the school newspaper at the high school have more journalistic integrity than the Register.  Funny how Mr. Dubois always claims that the democrats are mindless follower yet he gets his information from discredited sources about a week after the news breaks.  Talk about mindless!

 Henry A. Wallace, President Roosevelt's short-lived vice-president, would later run in 1948 under the Progressive Party ticket.  He had the support of the Communist Party USA and was decisively defeated.  Ironically in his later years he supported the re-election of Dwight Eisenhower and Richard Nixon.

bs copied and pasted:     “They (“American fascists”) cultivate hate and distrust of both Britain and Russia.”   So the U.S. and the free world had no reason to fear Stalin and the Soviet Union?    Mr. Wallace was what V.I. Lenin referred to as a “useful idiot.”     BTW: WW2 began in Europe with the invasion of Poland by Nazi Germany and the Soviet Union. Brothers in the socialist cloth.

 

6079 Smith W

 

So Mr. Obama views himself to be a big govt. prime-the-economic-pump Keynesian huh?   Let’s read what “Il Duce” had to say.   Benito Mussolini:    “Fascism entirely agrees with Mr. Maynard Keynes… so far as it goes, serve as a useful introduction to fascist economics. There is scarcely anything to object to in it and there is much to applaud”

 

brutus smith

Ike, Nixon and Reagan wouldn't be allowed in today's Repub party. As conservative as Nixon and Reagan were, Reagan gave illegals amnesty, he negotiated  with terrorists (iran-Contra), he cut and run from Lebanon after terrorists bombed a Marine barracks. Must be a Liberal.

"Some powerful interests who had been dominating the agenda in Washington for a very long time, they're not always happy with me. They talk about me like a dog. That's not in my prepared remarks, but it's true." 

Speaking of the GOP, he said:

"If I said the sky is blue, they'd say no," "If I said fish live in the sea, they'd say no."

Reads like an argument a spoiled child would make - not the President of the United States.

Poor, poor Obie - he's such a victim.

That kind of talk makes him sound weak and unpresidential.

Just what is thy fallen (deceased) and wounded count since the "Weapons of Mass Destruction" were itentified by the Bush/Chaney outburst at the beginning of the "War on Terrorism" in Iraq.  Would someone please find the injured and dead report on this.  Then whenen President Bush landed on an aircraft carrier and proclaimed "Mission Accomplished"  I believe more innocent soldiers were killed or maimed by enemy roadside bombs after that false declaration of Victory.  The point is we lost more soldiers after the so-called claim of  Victory, than we did before.  So much for the Bush/Chaney debocale.

All we need is honesty and integrety to save our soldiers from further harm.  The only phony crices that were "ginned up" were the result of George Bush and Dick (Please duck if you are hunting with me Chaney) and their cronies, and I believe the cronies were bi-partison albiet mostly Republicans , but had money at stake. They all wanted to line their pockets at the expence of the next generation of Americans.  WE THE PEOPLE will not stand for that.

 

I would much rather spend our money on infrastructure improvements and quality of life in America, than to send more of our best soldiers off to suffer in the Middle East.

Mr. Dubois: I saw the comment made by Erie Voices and could make no sense of it so I'm curious as to why it was deleted for personal attacks..............

I missed the comments by Erie Voices. Can anybody give me a general idea why the comments were deleted or what Erie Voices wrote?

Julie R.

Salvatore, I think it said something about getting fired from the railroad and something about Republicans.

I guess I am old when I recall what a what a great president said many years ago on his Inauguration Day; "Ask not what your country can do for you, ask what you can do for your country". President John F. Kennedy said those words on January 20, 1960. It took eight years for this country to get into the mess that Bush put us in. He spend our money like a drunken sailor while in office. I will give President Obama more time because it will take time for the country to get back on its feet after King George's regime. The Republician Party has been critical of everything that  President Obama tries to do. They think this coming election will be a cake walk for their party. I did not see many Republicians asking Bush to help them campaign when running for office. If people would look back to 1980 and realize that only one Democrat held the presidency in the last 28 years. Times were good those eight years under President Clinton. Look what the Republicians did to this country their twenty years in office.

Lucius

I agree that President Bush's spending was more than what it should have been, but if it is the issue of spending that has you concerned then I am perplexed by your ability to stand by President Obama. Just briefly looking at his spending over the past year shows that Mr. Obama is a profligate politician whose spending has been ridiculous and out of touch with the American public since he took office in January of 2009.

Just remember that a government that is powerful enough to provide you with everything first has to take everything away. It really has become about the redistribution of wealth, and I do not feel that it is the government's right or responsibility to be in charge of such a task.

Retiree

I completely understand what you are saying.When President Clinton left office this great country had a surplus and never depended on other countries for money. After President Bush's failed presidency, why would anyone ever want to be president is beyond my imagination? Coming into office and inheriting two wars, incouraging mass exit of companies overseas, unemployment rising, his blunder in New Orleans, and I could go on further. What would you do in that situation? Senator McCain saw what was happening in 2008 and the Republician Congress did not try and stop our eventual recession. Bush just kept spending like a drunkin sailor. President Obama started working on our countries problem long before being sworn in as president. What did Bush do? Spend more money and put the country further in debt. I do not have the answers but I sure pray that President Obama does.

Please tell me why the United States ever invaded Iraq. I have been trying to figure that question now for years. After all, most of the terrorist came from Saudi Arabia. That's the country the United States should have invaded. I understand the Bush family are very friendly with the Saudi's and made millions of dollars in Arab oil. Maybe that's the reason? Whatever the reason for invading Iraq, over 4,000 Americans soldiers (heroes) died for what. To make the rich richer. 

brutus smith

Reagan and Bush redistributed the wealth from the middle class to the rich. Well guess what, we come to get our money back.
