I Am So Totally Serious Too!!!

I am sick and tired of having to listen to social conservatives tell me how sinful we gays and lesbians are.... I am so ******* sick and tired of being told that America was so much better in the old days.... I am sick and ******* tired of having my rights as a woman disrespected by brain dead Bible-thumpers who don't even believe in evolution....

AS FAR AS I'M CONCERNED...

Believe what you want.... but I think you all need to bend over and have a massive butt *******... maybe that'll push your brains back up to your heads!

I love this picture...but :) beware of republicOn trolls.

interesting that you think they should be sexually assaulted and that it is ok with you to sexually assault someone who disagrees with you. seems like you hate them because of their lifestyle and beliefs and will not tolerate it.

maybe we'll just re-write the bible just for you. then, we can take the parts out about the sins we don't like and keep what we do like.

how dare someone stand up and believe differently than you. it's like everyone has the right to believe what they want or something. it's just irritating isn't it because they disagree with you, and keep you from being free and doing whatever you want to do

Love it!!!

Four Deformations of the Apocalypse<br />
By DAVID STOCKMAN<br />
IF there were such a thing as Chapter 11 for politicians, the Republican push to extend the unaffordable Bush tax cuts would amount to a bankruptcy filing. The nation’s public debt — if honestly reckoned to include municipal bonds and the $7 trillion of new deficits baked into the cake through 2015 — will soon reach $18 trillion. That’s a Greece-scale 120 percent of gross domestic product, and fairly screams out for austerity and sacrifice. It is therefore unseemly for the Senate minority leader, Mitch McConnell, to insist that the nation’s wealthiest taxpayers be spared even a three-percentage-point rate increase.<br />
<br />
More fundamentally, Mr. McConnell’s stand puts the lie to the Republican pretense that its new monetarist and supply-side doctrines are rooted in its traditional financial philosophy. Republicans used to believe that prosperity depended upon the regular balancing of accounts — in government, in international trade, on the ledgers of central banks and in the financial affairs of private households and businesses, too. But the new catechism, as practiced by Republican policymakers for decades now, has amounted to little more than money printing and deficit finance — vulgar Keynesianism robed in the ideological vestments of the prosperous classes.<br />
<br />
This approach has not simply made a mockery of traditional party ideals. It has also led to the serial financial bubbles and Wall Street depredations that have crippled our economy. More specifically, the new policy doctrines have caused four great deformations of the national economy, and modern Republicans have turned a blind eye to each one.<br />
<br />
The first of these started when the Nixon administration defaulted on American obligations under the 1944 Bretton Woods agreement to balance our accounts with the world. Now, since we have lived beyond our means as a nation for nearly 40 years, our cumulative current-account deficit — the combined shortfall on our trade in goods, services and income — has reached nearly $8 trillion. That’s borrowed prosperity on an epic scale.<br />
<br />
It is also an outcome that Milton Friedman said could never happen when, in 1971, he persuaded President Nixon to unleash on the world paper dollars no longer redeemable in gold or other fixed monetary reserves. Just let the free market set currency exchange rates, he said, and trade deficits will self-correct.<br />
<br />
It may be true that governments, because they intervene in foreign exchange markets, have never completely allowed their currencies to float freely. But that does not absolve Friedman’s $8 trillion error. Once relieved of the discipline of defending a fixed value for their currencies, politicians the world over were free to cheapen their money and disregard their neighbors.<br />
<br />
In fact, since chronic current-account deficits result from a nation spending more than it earns, stringent domestic belt-tightening is the only cure. When the dollar was tied to fixed exchange rates, politicians were willing to administer the needed castor oil, because the alternative was to make up for the trade shortfall by paying out reserves, and this would cause immediate economic pain — from high interest rates, for example. But now there is no discipline, only global monetary chaos as foreign central banks run their own printing presses at ever faster speeds to sop up the tidal wave of dollars coming from the Federal Reserve.<br />
<br />
The second unhappy change in the American economy has been the extraordinary growth of our public debt. In 1970 it was just 40 percent of gross domestic product, or about $425 billion. When it reaches $18 trillion, it will be 40 times greater than in 1970. This debt explosion has resulted not from big spending by the Democrats, but instead the Republican Party’s embrace, about three decades ago, of the insidious doctrine that deficits don’t matter if they result from tax cuts.<br />
<br />
In 1981, traditional Republicans supported tax cuts, matched by spending cuts, to offset the way inflation was pushing many taxpayers into higher brackets and to spur investment. The Reagan administration’s hastily prepared fiscal blueprint, however, was no match for the primordial forces — the welfare state and the warfare state — that drive the federal spending machine.<br />
<br />
Soon, the neocons were pushing the military budget skyward. And the Republicans on Capitol Hill who were supposed to cut spending exempted from the knife most of the domestic budget — entitlements, farm subsidies, education, water projects. But in the end it was a new cadre of ideological tax-cutters who killed the Republicans’ fiscal religion.<br />
<br />
Through the 1984 election, the old guard earnestly tried to control the deficit, rolling back about 40 percent of the original Reagan tax cuts. But when, in the following years, the Federal Reserve chairman, Paul Volcker, finally crushed inflation, enabling a solid economic rebound, the new tax-cutters not only claimed victory for their supply-side strategy but hooked Republicans for good on the delusion that the economy will outgrow the deficit if plied with enough tax cuts.<br />
<br />
By fiscal year 2009, the tax-cutters had reduced federal revenues to 15 percent of gross domestic product, lower than they had been since the 1940s. Then, after rarely vetoing a budget bill and engaging in two unfinanced foreign military adventures, George W. Bush surrendered on domestic spending cuts, too — signing into law $420 billion in non-defense appropriations, a 65 percent gain from the $260 billion he had inherited eight years earlier. Republicans thus joined the Democrats in a shameless embrace of a free-lunch fiscal policy.<br />
<br />
The third ominous change in the American economy has been the vast, unproductive expansion of our financial sector. Here, Republicans have been oblivious to the grave danger of flooding financial markets with freely printed money and, at the same time, removing traditional restrictions on leverage and speculation. As a result, the combined assets of conventional banks and the so-called shadow banking system (including investment banks and finance companies) grew from a mere $500 billion in 1970 to $30 trillion by September 2008.<br />
<br />
But the trillion-dollar conglomerates that inhabit this new financial world are not free enterprises. They are rather wards of the state, extracting billions from the economy with a lot of pointless speculation in stocks, bonds, commodities and derivatives. They could never have survived, much less thrived, if their deposits had not been government-guaranteed and if they hadn’t been able to obtain virtually free money from the Fed’s discount window to cover their bad bets.<br />
<br />
The fourth destructive change has been the hollowing out of the larger American economy. Having lived beyond our means for decades by borrowing heavily from abroad, we have steadily sent jobs and production offshore. In the past decade, the number of high-value jobs in goods production and in service categories like trade, transportation, information technology and the professions has shrunk by 12 percent, to 68 million from 77 million. The only reason we have not experienced a severe reduction in nonfarm payrolls since 2000 is that there has been a gain in low-paying, often part-time positions in places like bars, hotels and nursing homes.<br />
<br />
It is not surprising, then, that during the last bubble (from 2002 to 2006) the top 1 percent of Americans — paid mainly from the Wall Street casino — received two-thirds of the gain in national income, while the bottom 90 percent — mainly dependent on Main Street’s shrinking economy — got only 12 percent. This growing wealth gap is not the market’s fault. It’s the decaying fruit of bad economic policy.<br />
<br />
The day of national reckoning has arrived. We will not have a conventional business recovery now, but rather a long hangover of debt liquidation and downsizing — as suggested by last week’s news that the national economy grew at an anemic annual rate of 2.4 percent in the second quarter. Under these circumstances, it’s a pity that the modern Republican Party offers the American people an irrelevant platform of recycled Keynesianism when the old approach — balanced budgets, sound money and financial discipline — is needed more than ever.<br />

First round to you I think S .....

Thank you.

WOW, what an argument. I believe in God and I have no problem with same sex marriage. I believe that God wants us to just have faith whether your gay or not. If God is so condemning then why has so many priests got away with molesting young boys. Shouldn't they have been struck down by God's wrath. I don't really want to get into this whole debate but I believe that you should treat others as you would want others to treat you. With that I will say goodbye and I support Sara and her beliefs whether society likes it or not.

Dearest Nappy:<br />
To believe in a god is not the litmus test of retardation, I would not espouse such a concept.<br />
My little treatise was on an old fart who believed every word of the Judeo-Christian bible, from secret gardens with talking animals to dirt men cavorting with rib women. From floating zoos to flying rabbis, 6000 year old earths and dudes who claim squatters right in fish.<br />
If you question dear nappy, is do I consider people who hold these stories to be true stupid, why yes I do ,morons, dolts, idiots, retards, brain dead, birth defects, inbred former Alaskan governors.<br />
But gods, sure, why not. There is no proof but whatever floats your boat.

Excuse me everyone -- but I will chime in now.<br />
<br />
Personally, I believe in God. I do. I even go to church most Sundays. I intend for my real marriage to be in a church. I am NOT attacking people who believe in God or who believe in a different God than I believe in.<br />
<br />
What I AM attacking are people who INSIST that THEIR believes trump mine... that THEIR beliefs MUST be codified into the Law of the Land.. who INSIST that I am sinful and must be punished by secular law because I violate one of their RELIGIOUS laws ... who INSIST that morals dictated by THEIR religious beliefs -- and NOT by those of others -- MUST be enforced by my states and my nations laws.<br />
<br />
THEY need to be butt ******.

so I guess youre saying that im one of the folks that dont have a brain, because I believe in God. This country is supposed to be all about tolerance, and anyone that cant tolerate me, I cant tolerate you. Just because I dont agree with your beliefs doesnt give you a right to attack mines if I didnt do anything to you but exercise my freedoms and right as a citizen of this country.

Arorin, again, talking snakes and donkeys, flying dead carpenters, rib women and dirt men..... ya, dumb as a bunch of bricks

so because someone has beliefs differently then your own godfree they are dumb as a sack of bricks? So you can prove how we got here and answer all the questions of the universe? You cant give out any more facts then the same people you are calling dumb. Ignorance is a closed mind, and closing your mind to any option even ones that sound silly to you is ignorance. I have no idea how we got here or if religion is true or not, but just the same as we cant prove it is real we cant prove it isnt real and i keep my mind free and open to all ideas.

I am happy that your grandfather has found peace and comfort from the pages of a book, I hope it makes him happy till his final day. But that same book has done tremendous harm to people over the centuries, it has led to the burning of tens of thousands of women as witches, it has inspired the invasion of lands and the slaughter of millions. From its teachings science and the arts were almost abolished from Europe.<br />
You must remember that when your grandfather says he believes every word in the bible he is saying he believs in talking snakes and donkeys, flying carpenters who are their own fathers, women crafted from mens spare parts and men born of dirt. He believes that light was created before the sun, that the moon generates its own light and that rain comes from floating rivers called firmaments.<br />
So while its true your grandfather is a sweet old dude, you must confess he is also as dumb as a sack of bricks.

I don't know what Bible or what history books--if any-- you have read, but you are just repeating what you heard someone else say...someone who was just as clueless as the people you are bashing

"If you think the Bible, the Koran, the Gita, the WHATEVER... is UNERRINGLY ACCURATE AS WRITTEN ... you are a brain dead idiot who needs a MASSIVE BUTT-*******."<br />
<br />
How is this not attacking an individual who believes in their religion?

Absolutism in any form is frightening but worth fighting when it raises its ugly head.

Arorin, you seem to be the only one who doesn't get what I'm saying. It is directed at a Fascist Mindset, not at individuals.

The words used here be it unintentionally or not did single out many people.<br />
<br />
and you know I have felt it. You know my story sara. I have a darker story of pain and abuse then most people in this world will ever know.

Exactly, Arorin, you may not have yet felt it, but there are people out there -- MANY people out there -- who feel it is their RIGHT to tell others how to live... that it is their RIGHT to ban some forms of love... that is is their RIGHT to tell women what medical procedures we may or may not have... that it is their RIGHT to tell men and women how they must run their marriages... that it is their RIGHT to deny science and truth in favor of myth... that it is their RIGHT to ban some religions and not others ... that it is their RIGHT to pass laws that discriminate against some people and promote others.....<br />
<br />
.... many of these people hide behind religion... telling others that THEY AND THEY ALONE have ALL the answers... that G-D talks to them and ONLY to them... that anyone who does not believe in the LITERAL TRUTH OF THEIR PARTICULAR religion is damned to hell for all eternity....<br />
<br />
THESE are people I am terrified of and people I think are actually terrified of me. THEY need a butt-*******.

Arorin, I believe you are missing Sara's main point. She is angry at those who would use their religious views to subjugate and discriminate against others. It sounds like your grandpa was a good man and she wasn't trying to single him or anyone out.<br />
<br />
Take your pick..race, spirituality, political afflilation,ethnicity, sexual orientation, gender, etc..These have been platforms for prejudice for a very long time and some of us are just sick and tired of others screaming their version of "the truth" from a bully pulpit.<br />
Unlike the religious right, we have all sorts of individuals within our fold...We are tolerant and loving but we are not pushovers and are sick of the bs that keeps getting slung at us in the name of "religion."<br />
<br />
Yes..one day we will be considered valued members of society and it will no longer be acceptable to slam gays but until such time arises, we will not lie down and take it anymore. No one will hand us our rights..we must come out, stand shoulder to shoulder and take our place at the table.<br />
<br />
"Well-behaved women seldom make history." ~ Margaret Mead

My grandpa who is one of the most important people in my life believes every word of the bible. That is cool that is his belief, but he has never harmed anyone in his life. He has owned a business and gave jobs to black people when no one else around here ever would. He has raised a family the best way he could and helped anyone who needed it. Even though he believes in the bible he also believes in keeping his nose and business out of other peoples business. If anyone tried to hurt him or butt **** him just because he believes in the bible 100% I would personally kill that person for trying to do so.

Sounds like a good idea, but...I don't want the job.

I will NOT give my life or life style over to people who believe they are being talked to directly by G-d. I WILL NOT! If you think the Bible, the Koran, the Gita, the WHATEVER... is UNERRINGLY ACCURATE AS WRITTEN ... you are a brain dead idiot who needs a MASSIVE BUTT-*******.

Yes, that is precisely the problem. These bigots are in a position where they take away people's rights just because of their own prejudice, which they are then able to foist on the rest of the populace, and also to shape public opinion generally, aided and abetted by some sections of the media, and the clergy, etc. These people are repulsive, and it's time that they heard the anger of those who support equality and liberty and the freedom to live and love without prejudice.

Yeah, whenever Kris and I want to just be able to hang out and BE we know we need a day down in New York City or a day over in Woodstock... we can hold hands, kiss, arms around each other... no one gives a flying ****. It's WONDERFUL!!!!

Well said Sara and Mizz!! It doesn't matter to me what you think of me as a person but once you trample on MY happiness than the problem begins!<br />
<br />
**** Sara, maybe I need to come to the Gayskills...lol

dont you get it though newdaydogEP it isnt just one group of people who want to do that, but it is the entire world pushing their beliefs on others.

Brighton's awesome, no problems there, and...........you get the beach!

That's on the shore, right?<br />
<br />
Here in New York I live north of New York City... across the Hudson River from where I am are the Catskills... or as they are now being called... The Gayskills.... LOL!

Yes, I can vouch for Brighton! Great place!!

Well, here too it depends on where you live... here in New York State we are all pretty socially liberal... and we're next to Massachusetts and Vermont and Connecticut and New Jersey -- it's all pretty liberal and progressive here... even our conservatives are more like yours....<br />
<br />
But then we get to other parts of this huge country.....<br />
<br />
And the problem is, in our federal system, the half million people in Alaska have the same vote in the Senate as the 35 million people in California or the 18 million here in New York....<br />
<br />
FUUUUUUUUUCCCCCKKKKK!

Don't be ridiculous. The Senate is only half of the Legislative branch. California has , what 43 representatives--meaning 43 electoral votes compared to Alaska's 3 maybe 5? You are more filled with hate and inaccuracies than the people you are whining about

Aronin.... <br />
Opinions are one thing.<br />
Calls to have people removed from their jobs or thrown out of the military, or calls for legislation to refuse to recognize a marriage performed in another state (perhaps a gay marriage or a biracial marriage) are another thing entirely.<br />
Everyone is free to be as big an ******* as they wish. But their right to affect my or anyone else's life ends where my rights begin.<br />
Sara is not talking about simple beliefs here. These maggots want to enforce their view of what is right onto the rest of us.

I dont like people pushing their beliefs into me either but every time someone votes that is what they are doing. So what can you do about it?

We do, not so much as you guys though, you could live in Brighton!

Thanks La-la... but I know you have problems there too.,....

I don't care what some of these ******** believe, I just want them to STOP PUSHING THEIR ANTIQUATED CLOSE-MINDED OPINIONS ONTO ME!

come to England

I dont think it is wrong to have different opinions, or believes redhead.

Yeah, but you're an awesome lion.... I'm NOT TALKING about awesome lions.<br />
<br />
I'm talking about idiots who need to be butt-******.

Hate only breeds more hate sara. I am told because I dont like government I am republican. I am told because i live on a farm I am a hilly billy inbread hick. I am told because I like metal I am white trash. I am told because I am white I am racist and a bad person. I am told that because I am not gay I am a homophobe... but if you make generalizations about a whole group of people you have already started to bash others who have never harmed you. There are some great people of all political parties. There are some great people in all of the religions. We arent all bad, and there are some great rednecks in my family who would give the shirts off their back to anyone who needed it.

Thanks hon, and everyone else here too! Mwah!

you said it sara ... live your life the way you want to.

Arorin, I just WISH I could find common ground with the right-wing ******** who preach to me... I have TRIED.... I have been told I am going to burn in hell... I have been told I am the Devil... I have been told I am SICK and perverted and should be in jail... I have been told I make THEM puke by just living...<br />
<br />
WELL I AM SICK OF IT.<br />
<br />
They need their ****-for-brains pushed back up from their anal opening to their heads.... once there, maybe, just maybe, they will see what sickos they really are.

I'm ******* sick of it too, Sara, and I'm not on the end of their pathetic illiterate tirades (they are incapable of even piecing togeter a coherent sentence that you can, you know, read). They are the ones that have the problem, ie they have no brains to push back up. <br />
<br />
You have just got married to a woman you love, and who loves you back. They live sad, embittered, lives. You have a wonderful married life to look forward to. If some of them are on here, I will always flag and report them, and do what I can do rid EP of their pestilence. <br />
<br />
Enjoy your life with your lovely lady, Sara (((((hugs))))))

Concur.

I am tired of everyone. I am tired of the stupid democrats, republicans, and liberals fighting. Everyone is going to have a different opinion that is just how things are, and instead of fighting and bashing each other maybe we should look for common ground. If people want to leave it up to a fight that is fine but they wont win if I get involved.

They need something to get the brains back. Or maybe they are beyond that!

LOL! Like mother like daughter....

Aaaaaw, The Palins at home

why give them what they want?
