These Radical Republicans have NO REGARD for Average Americans!

Rightwing Radical Republicans continue to look like the Three Stooges on steroids.

Our President won decisively on the fiscal cliff debate and policy, but they also lost ugly. Yesterday’s polling showed the public liked the President’s work to resolve that ridiculous crisis over the Republicans by almost 30 points.

NJ Republican Governor Chris Christie continues to pound on the Radical Rightwing Republican majority in the House of Representatives for refusing to fund disaster relief in New Jersey and New York.

Please remember as we move through the sensible gun regulation discussion that $2 million a year NRA Chair Wayne LaPierre does not speak for our brothers and sisters primarily from rural areas who hunt and shoot as a part of theirs and this country’s way of life and traditions. Yes we must have stronger, tighter regulations and we gotta get hollow point cop killer bullets, military style weapons, and automatics off the streets, but our brothers and sisters who are hunters are not our enemies.

Both our President and the Radical Rightwing Republicans are strategizing and positioning for the showdown over our debt ceiling. It would be a governmental ABOMINATION and TREASON for the Rightwing House of Representatives to default on the debt and full faith and credit of the United States and shut down our government. Millions of workers in America and across the world would be plunged into joblessness and poverty. And THE CONTEXT FOR THIS FIGHT IS THE GREATEST INEQUALITY since the inequality that led to the Great Depression.

As most of you know, I’m from rural West Tennessee and Southeast Missouri. I saw racism and conservatism in my face everyday, but I’ll be damned if I ever saw anything as weird, ugly, stupid, and mean as these teabagger influenced Radical Rightwing Congressional Republicans. Seems to me they have become political nihilists with no regard for our people, average Americans, and our nation.

Please email me for real bargains on my two books! I’m selling Getting America Back to Work, which is the map out of our economic crisis for only $5! Simply CLICK HERE and contact me through this website to order!

I’m also selling my other book, Playing Bigger Than You Are: A Life in Organizing for only $10. CLICK HERE TO ORDER! PBTYA is filled with stories and lessons I learned in now almost 4 decades of community and union organizing. They are both breezy page turners that will help you win the inevitable family arguments against your family’s crazy uncle and aunt.

I got some nice reviews from several of you about the discussion we had on the Thom Hartmann show last Friday night (you can watch my segments HERE and HERE). Thanks so much for your kindnesses. Look for more to come! The Hartmann folks have asked for my schedule to put me on semi-regularly!

FINALLY, PLEASE PUT OUTSTANDING NEW POET, INGRID ANDERS, reading on your calendar at the MT  PLEASANT LIBRARY in D.C. on Feb 27th from 6:30 – 8pm.

Thanks for all you do for all the rest of us!
