Prick up your EARS and keep a SHARP eye peeled as the Republicans attempt to STICK *it* to us/the world...again!

Listen and HEAR, look and SEE:

OBSERVATIONS/WORDS of great wisdom when venturing near self-righteous/puritan destructionist GREEDY Republicans who STILL have a poisoness, and deadly STING...

*"A friend drives a car with a "Jesus is a liberal" bumper sticker, and it's always struck me as pretty much the truth." fs

*"In the weird bumper sticker department. A number of years ago some people in Colorado had: Jesus Christ is coming. And is he pissed." BONNIE

*"It will take the democrats (or for that matter anyone but a Republican) years and years to unravel the stupid and failed policies of George W. Bush. It makes no never mind if you look at foreign policy or domestic policy or ethics or management or take your pick -- this president has so screwed up the presidency that I would prefer that another Republican not get within 10,000 miles of the White House." FRED S.

*"Yes the economy is so completely and totally trashed. Lot of hard work ahead." BONNIE

*"Isn't it amazing how the Republicans are all but ignoring the real-life concerns of the American people (jobs, health care, economy, environment)? The change they'll give us is a nice, fresh, NEW WAR." fs (all caps emphasis added by LR)

*"Sarah Palin has gay friends... at least that's what she says in response to her strong stance against gay marriage and state benefits the partners of LGBT employees. Opinions about Sarah Palin are across the board. Some are enthralled by John McCain's VP running mate, and some-like I-are quite puzzled. There was little surprise that McCain would choose someone that pulls the "values" card, but pulling the card while insisting that being anti-gay is okay because she has a few gay friends has prompted a flurry of confusion and, frankly, insult." RAMON J.

Bonnie warns that Republicans in the White House will mean:

*"The words to My Country Tis of Thee will be changed to:

**My country tis of thee, sweet land of stupidity, let the automatic weapons fire ring.

**Our teenagers can experience Creationism in all it's forms and shot gun weddings and/or single parenthood will replace all other national pastimes. I cannot even fathom how anyone would consider this woman (Palin) an acceptable role model." BONNIE

*"What I pray for is the John McPain and Sarah Falin get exactly what they deserve -- an all expense two week vacation to Rick Warren's House of Whorship." FRED S.

*"Bravo, Leonardo, you see it clearly and tell it well. In less than two months the fate of our country and world will be sealed. We'd better take the road less traveled as it will make all the difference! Peace and prosperity for all vs. greed and indifference...which will it be?" DULCITA/JUDY

*"Last night the Republicans ran a video of 9/11 they showed prior to McCain's speech, along with MSNBC's Keith Olbermann's apology for it. Very appropriate that they start out with shots of 1980's Iran. The message: kill them before they kill us. The crowd loved it." fs

*"Certainly a big groan over on this end:) I ran for the scotch when it was over:)
Well... off we go now... gotta do good Obama work, eh?" CANY

*"I just got my moveon Obama button today." SCOTT H.

*"I was kinda glad her (Palin) introduction to the American people was in the role of a smug, snarky, sarcastic woman with a voice like a nagging, harping shrew. She really came off rather obnoxious. A normally sweet, elderly woman from church confided to me that Palin seemed "quite the opportunistic b*tch." fs

*"In response to Palin's speech the dem's raised 10 million dollars. Yes!
Thought you might like these comments from the Obama website." BONNIE

"Here are a few of the responses we received from voters who watched the Republican convention:

"This is one Republican for Obama that knows 100% now that I made the right choice and will in November vote for Obama-Biden." -- Bev from Georgia

"Republicans like Palin, Giuliani, and Romney can engage in red-meat partisan vitriol all they want, right out of the Karl Rove playbook, but this isn't 2000 or 2004. Americans now have seen the full impact of GOP policies on their pocketbook." -- Rick from Colorado

"What the Republicans displayed ... is more of the same old thing -- unproductive politics. I hope and pray that the American voters will see through this and realize that we need a different mindset and approach if we are ever going to get things done in Washington." -- Patricia from Kansas"

Added by "fs" today:

by Rachal Kleinfeld,"The Wrong Fight", from the NYTimes.

Excerpt:

"John McCain has told us — over and over again — that he is willing to fight. In fact, he relishes a fight. So much so that, in his own words Thursday night, he said he liked to “pick a few fights for the fun of it.”

Now, I’m from a loud, combative family, and I’ve picked a good, principled fight time and again. But a fight on principle is different than a half-cocked drunken roundhouse. And that was the kind of fight Senator McCain was picking with Russia Thursday. Renewing the cold war as a cheer line for an otherwise flat campaign speech? That’s not being a maverick — that’s being reckless. [More at link about how they're ignoring Afghanistan, etc.]"

Thank you fs!

REPEAT, may we have your attention please?

*"Off we go now...gotta do good Obama work, eh?" CANY

CHANGE that we MUST be part of...it's a matter of a REALLY healthy emotional, spiritual and economic life and experiencing LIFE filled with wholesome eagerness to CHANGE "things we can" vs Death by terminal fecklessness, selfishness and greed.

Other things to consider if Palin were to end up in the president's chair.

Not many will be singing, "Keep Your Eye on the Grand Old Flag if her bikini wear is THE fashion statement.

The words to My Country Tis of Thee will be changed to:

My country tis of thee, sweet land of stupidity, let the automatic weapons fire ring.

Our teenagers can experience Creationism in all it's forms and shot gun weddings and/or single parenthood will replace all other national pastimes. I cannot even fathom how anyone would consider this woman an acceptable role model.

Thanks also for sharing Juan's beautiful bonsi cactus. So much patience and love.

Hi Leonardo--Nothing like hogging the blog. Sorry. Thought you might like these comments from the Obama website.

LR, you have become absolutely prolific. I can't keep up!

:)

Good morning, Leonardo. I second Bonnie on the beauty of the cactus. The rocks that Juan Carlos used to set it off work very nicely, too. Leonardo is surrounded by beauty -- Gracias a Dios! May this be a nice Saturday morning for you and for whoever's reading this.

I hope my somewhat out-of-context quotations on the front of your blog aren't too confusing for your readers (e.g., the RNC didn't actually run Olbermann's apology).

Here is a pertinent opinion piece by Rachal Kleinfeld,"The Wrong Fight", from the NYTimes. Excerpt:

John McCain has told us — over and over again — that he is willing to fight. In fact, he relishes a fight. So much so that, in his own words Thursday night, he said he liked to “pick a few fights for the fun of it.”

This sudden attack on Russia doesn't make sense (Georgia started the hostilities, probably with our encouragement) except as part of a broader plan on the part of certain warmongers in our government.

Leonardo, NYTimes columnist Maureen Dowd wields a pen like a sword. I wouldn't want to get on her bad side! But...she can be very funny. Check out her imaginary debate between Hillary Clinton and V.P. Palin in the year 2012: Clash of the Titans. It's a hoot.

In the meantime, sweet dreams, Señor.

"So pack up your snow boots and antlers and backwoods brood and scram." Hillary

Lynn my friend,

Are you sure SHE can't say that to Grover Palin before November 4th? Please tell me we'll be hearing some of that really mean spirited, yet REAL, stuff, soonish!

fs said...

Hey, that was me, Leonardo. ;-P

Dowd's columns are usually sharp (as in "ouch!"), funny, and, yeah, REAL.

Did you see this?
Palin's Church Promotes Converting Gays

Leonardo Ricardo said...

fs, thank you so much for posting Dowd's column, I guess I got a little confused, who me? Anyway, I've always liked her and once had a link that arrived to my computer of them...in Puerto Rico she was one of the syndicated "Op Editors" in The "award winning" San Juan Star...always appreciate her sense of humor as it's very close to my OWN (and I think I can be funny in that same sense)...it's a lovely Sunday morning in Central America, full sunshine, birds chirping, light cool breeze, all is well and I'm hoping you're still healing up real well too...such a major surgery you've had and I hope the pain is less and less each day and that pony tail is snapping with every stride.

Joyous abrazos (not the back slapping kind),

Leonardo

fs said...

Hey, thanks, Leonardo. It's been weird -- there have been a couple of complications -- but overall, I'm a whole lot better off than I was before the surgeries. Thank you for caring. We only know each other through words on a screen, but you are so palpably real and loving and passionately righteous for things that matter. Big spirit there.

Sounds lovely in Central America; I'm glad you have it. I like the new MLK quote on your front page. Speaks directly to this time, the one we're experiencing, doesn't it?

I love the overall look of your blog. Gorgeous graphics. You'd think the blogger was an artist, now wouldn't ya? ;-)
