Arizona Commits Economic Suicide

Arizona’s new immigration law, SB 1070 appears to be a violation of the First Amendment – but Arizona Republicans really don’t care about the America and its Constitution.

That aside, the people of Arizona are really working against their own self-interest.  If they were honestly opposed to illegal's, they would imprison anyone who employed them – one mandatory year for each employee (served sequentially) would quickly do the trick.  ! BUT NO !

Instead of  address the employer, they go after the foreigner.  How many legal residents will accept being harassed on the streets?   How many legal residents, or new citizens, will want to be stopped on the streets – or imprisoned because they don’t carry the right papers to prove their status?  How many tourists will want to go to a State that proclaims they aren’t welcomed and will be harassed if they try to act like visitors?

Why retire to a place that doesn’t want you, or your family?  Why establish a business there?  Or open a corporate branch office there?

OK, you you aren’t illegal, or an immigrant – and there are none in you immediate or extended family –so what do you care?  Well, if you even look foreign you are going to be harassed.  Even if you don’t look or sound foreign, what’s to stop these bigoted idiots from harassing you anyway?  They are liars, and idiots, so what the hell … police state one-0-one.

Don’t matter … the state will repeal the law, or go bust as everyone with even a fraction of a brain decides to avoid it.

TEA PARTY? Coffee Country

Ah “The Tea Party: Populism of the privileged”, By E.J. Dionne Jr. (Monday, April 19, 2010) … “The Tea Party is nothing new.  It represents a relatively small minority of Americans on the right end of politics, and it will not determine the outcome of the 2010 elections. … The Times reported that Tea Party supporters "tend to be Republican, white, male, married and older than 45."  And the poll suggested something that white Americans are reluctant to discuss: Part of the anger at President Obama among Tea Partiers does appear to be driven by racial concerns.”

Ya tink may-bee the media is going to realize the stupidity that is Palin and her Tea Party.  Ley’s deal with this:  “A Pew Research Center study released Sunday is thus a better guide than the Tea Party's rants to the real nature of this nation's discontent. It found that only 22 percent of Americans say they can trust the government almost always or most of the time, ‘among the lowest measures in more than half a century.’  This mistrust extends beyond government to banks, financial institutions and large corporations.”

Given that 30 percent is the deviant norm that supports the GOP -- without thought, logic or rationality to justify their support of GOP positions designed to impose the most harm to the most people.  Let’s understand that the GOP will do anything to bring harm to the average person – that average person, regardless of if they are American.

Remember:  Republicans sponsor wars that aren’t declared by Congress; aren’t against nations or defined enemies; have no purpose other than to double the National Debt.

What the GOP has promoted

From The British Medical Journal:

The report indicates that maternal mortality ratios have increased from 6.6 deaths per 100 000 live births in 1987 to 13.3 deaths per 100 000 live births in 2006. Although some of the recorded increase is due to improved data collection, "the fact remains that maternal mortality ratios have risen significantly."

Amnesty points out that the United States spends more than any other country on health care, and more on maternal health than any other type of hospital care. "Despite this, women in the USA have a higher risk of dying of pregnancy-related complications than those in 40 other countries.

"For example, the likelihood of a woman dying in childbirth in the USA is five times greater than in Greece, four times greater than in Germany, and three times greater than in Spain."


This is one aspect of the GOP opposition to National Medical Care; it represents the result of actions which begun with the Reagan Administration and finalized by the two Bush administrations.

If you are foolhardy enough to debate the point, remember that it is the lives of your children and grandchildren … and great grandchildren … which are at stake.

YES!  We now have a new medical program --- dubbed OBAMACARE --- which the GOP seeks to repeal, or block implementation of.   Because of the GOP opposition to single payer care, the United States diverts funds into a healthcare system which is structured to deny care to those who pay them.  It is a system which pays people to say NO!

They want you to die – so long as the premiums are paid – and your employer will continue to pay … for coverage on you healthy replacement.

The most harm to the most people … the figures are coming in … albeit they being concealed in America and so we need to look to Europe to get the facts and truth.

This is an election year … we can expect GOP lies and dishonesty will gain victories … and more Americas will die at birth, or in their senior years.  These will be deaths which are unnecessary and, by the fact that they are premeditated, preplanned, and desired by the GOP … they are murders for which nobody will be held accountable.

In fact, if my assessment of the average intelligence of 30% of the population is accurate – and if they can convince half of those who are fence sitters – the GOP will garner rewards in the form of more power to obstruct the greater good … obstruct the health & welfare of Americans.  They will have the power to create another doubling of the National Debt – after the 2012 elections.

You’ve been warned.

Maternal Deaths Decline Sharply Across the Globe

For the first time in decades, researchers are reporting a significant drop worldwide in the number of women dying each year from pregnancy and childbirth, to about 342,900 in 2008 from 526,300 in 1980.

The findings, published in the medical journal The Lancet, challenge the prevailing view of maternal mortality as an intractable problem that has defied every effort to solve it.


Gee ... in the rest of the world, the right to life improves. In the Evangelical-GOP Nation ... which touts and publicizes its beliefs in the right to life and fiscal responsibility ... GOP presidents double the national debt with their borrow and spend policies ... and fight healthcare which ... in the rest of the world ... makes it safer for women and children to survive childbirth ... THE MOST HARM TO THE MOST PEOPLE - the GOP & Evangelical way of life.

Don't you just love when liars are outed and those they lie to continue to accept their lies?
