Republicans know that swing voters don’t see the problem with voter ID — they can’t imagine having difficulty obtaining proper identification, so they figure it’s easy for everyone, and so voter ID talk doesn’t make them look at Republicans with suspicion. They don’t see the problems with Paul Ryan’s poverty talk, either. The people who are actually affected by these Republican policies, on the other hand, know better. But Republicans aren’t talking to them. They’re talking to white voters, with an eye toward 2014 and 2016.


GOP Voter Fraud Accusations Suddenly Blowing Up In Their Faces

by

Republican officials, who have used hysteria about alleged voter fraud as an excuse to support measures that disproportionately block Democratic voters, are furiously trying to distance themselves from a growing number of GOP voter registration drives that either submitted false applications or threw away authentic ones.

Mitt Romney Ad Hits Obama For Inability To Work With Congress

I guess they think we forgot about Mitch McConnell’s statement that the GOP’s TOP PRIORITY is to make Barack Obama a ONE TERM PRESIDENT.

I guess they think we forgot about Speaker John Boehner and the House Republican’s obstructionist behavior.

I guess they think we forgot about the Jobs Bill and the Farmers Bill that the GOP STILL refuses to pass.

Perhaps they think we forgot about Speaker John Boehner and the House Republicans refusal to pass the Balanced Budget proposal, which resulted in the down grading of America’s AAA Credit Rating. That same inaction that will lead to automatic budget cuts this December that will drastically gut funding from both the Military AND Social Security!

I guess they think we forgot.

I AM Re-Blogging this to show the ridiculous extent to which Fox (Faux) News will go in order to skew reality.
If I had to fight off Right Wing Nut Jobs Twenty-Four Hours A Day, I’d be exhausted too!

Gay couple told to lie about marriage in order to get names changed

gaywrites:

Stephen Hill and Joshua Snyder were legally married in Washington, D.C. about a year ago. But when they went to a courthouse in their home state of Ohio recently to get their last names hyphenated together, they found the process harder than expected.

Snyder and Hill were pulled aside at the courthouse and told to lie on their name change applications, because they would be denied if they listed “marriage” as the reason for their name change. They refused to lie. 

Hill served in the military for 20 years under Don’t Ask Don’t Tell - he’s the soldier Republicans booed after he asked at a debate whether candidates would reinstate the policy. He says he didn’t want to lie about who he is anymore, and as a result, it will be much more complicated for he and his husband to change their names:

A news report about the couple’s request for a name change added to the anticipation for today’s hearing. A judge heard their request today but opted not to issue a decision, instead promising to mail it to them. Changing a last name in Ohio would require a 10-page application, printing their names in the newspaper, $138 each, and then an appearance before the judge who normally renders a verdict on whether to let the name change go forward.

It’s troubling that something as simple as a name change has to be so complicated for LGBT folks. Why oh why? 

In America, it is better to be dishonest than to be Gay. - Those are mighty fine “Family Values”.

I’m confused about something…

I hear a lot of GOP members talk of Ronald Reagan as if he was the second coming of the deity. They call themselves Reagan Conservatives as if it was something of which to be proud.

But I remember Reaganomics: The idea that you give tax breaks to the very wealthy and subsidies to corporations in order that they will create employment. They called it “Trickle-Down Economics”. It sounds like a reasonable concept, until reality sets in, and you see that the only jobs created are low-wage positions with little or no benefits.

Many families, including my own, had to rely on both parents earning an income in order to survive.

Whoopi Goldberg compared Trickle Down economics to the wealthy relieving themselves on the working class. (I’m paraphrasing, of course.)

The thing that confuses me most though, is this idea that Reagan somehow fixed our economy. If Ronald Reagan did such wonderful things for our economy, why were we chanting, “It’s the economy, Stupid” by the end of George Bush Sr’s first term? Theoretically, if Ronald Reagan set the United States of America on the path to economic recovery, Bush Sr. should have enjoyed a second term in office. Bush Sr. would have been able to shrug off any question about the economy.

But he didn’t.

America was still feeling economic pains. “It’s The Economy, Stupid” was Bush Sr’s downfall. Then after William Jefferson Clinton became the 42nd President, the United States had a surplus economy, for the first time in over two decades.

So please don’t lie to me and the rest of America with fantasies of how great Ronald Reagan was for this country’s economy. It’s not the reality that I lived.
