IN YOUR FACE Rantings From My Timeline Book By The Pollitikat

This is political and social commentary and just my opinions; a compilation of Status Updates as broadcasted on Facebook from my personal page “Pollitikat Comments”. A documentation of current events, a critique on American Politics and Society and my version of Art. Some might call them brain farts but these are deep thoughts — Yes, I consider myself an analyst, philosopher and artist. This is an urban review from a concerned immigrant who has adopted the United States as home. A really fun book, not overly serious and should be consider light comedy. Hopefully there is something in it that will make you laugh, make you think, you might find pain, some misunderstanding, even get angry — and maybe there is one thing in here you will agree with. The purpose is to share these dynamic posts with a new audience, folks who have never been on Facebook or have never seen a comment from Pollitikat – as well as offering another viewpoint on some of the critical issues facing America. For those who follow me online — it’s your favorite posts in book form so you can share with your friends and family, and for everyone it is an opportunity to start discussions of your own.
“Do I think I am smart, yes—do I think I know it all? I know that no matter how much I think I know I only know one thing and that is–I know nothing.” — Pollitikat Comments

Limbaugh Represents A Particular Kind

There is a kind out there, they are an attractive kind, and many like or love them. It’s the people who listen to Rush, with whom his ranting resonates. They are the Rush kind. Know who else was silent during Limbaugh’s lambasting of Miss Fluke; Sarah Palin had nothing to say about the assault on Miss Fluke. It’s FoxNews, Hannity, Beck, O’Reilly, Joe Scarborough, and Hasselbeck—the hate machine kind. They are fired up against President Obama, and are going to come out to vote against him–I trust they have their state IDs.

The primaries are about finding the “right” person who most resembles Rush, the person who is willing to call President Obama, a “colored uppity negro” or particular slavery slang to his face. It’s about being ignorant, spewing hate speech and religious indignation. The President was accurate in his description when he said they “cling to their guns and religion”, and they will use their guns like with Gabrielle Giffords.

Where some see the bible as a “how to book” for living righteously, I think others might see a how to for “white male supremacy”. It feels like the residue of “white only” drinking fountains press forward with their “American Agenda” and by American-I mean “white Christian male”– a world where the business class rules, and where women are whores, who should wash the feet of men.

Rush is only saying what they believe. When Limbaugh is sitting in his studio saying something crazy, I watch out for the person who agrees with him. They may or may not use the “language” of Limbaugh but you know they understand what Rush is saying. REGISTER; get your ID, AND VOTE.

“Take America Back To The Future”

I saw a sign from the rally on Saturday that resonated with me; it states exactly what I feel about the country right now and how important this election is for America as a nation. I have always felt the country had a very short memory, but why don’t people remember? So here is my written version of what I remember in the past thirty years since I have been following politics. Remember that it was Reagan a Republican who left Clinton a deficit. Remember we had a banking scandal under the first George Bush a Republican. Remember Bush2 lied about weapons of mass destruction and the Republicans and media went along with the lie, and remember people are still DYING as a consequence of that lie. Remember they impeached Clinton, but would not consider investigating Bush. Remember they outsourced our jobs and our government and our military. Remember Halliburton, and Blackwater. Remember Watergate, and the government shutdown in 1995. Remember how Republicans bash government but still want to be a part of it, remember that many of them have been a part of it for many years, like Boehner and McCain, remember how corrupt they are, remember that McCain chose Palin as his VP Candidate, and most of all remember the Tea Party and Republicans were SILENT during all of this! REMEMBER THE PEOPLE VOTED FOR OBAMA – and the Republicans and Tea Party have spent the past two years saying he is not legitimate, disrespecting your vote, as if only their vote counts. Remember they are not respecting your love for this country or the democratic process. Remember they did it during the war, if you weren’t for the war; you hated America, now if you don’t believe Obama is a socialist Muslim born in Kenya then you don’t love America.

Remember that for some the vote was not given but fought for, like women. Remember the civil war ended in the 1800’s but Jim Crowe ended in 1964. Remember what the founding fathers wrote, that America is not and will not be perfect but we should strive towards a more perfect union. Remember the Tea Party and Republicans think America is perfect, remember they want to dismantle the current Constitution and go back to the Constitution of the 1700s. Remember this is the millennium. Remember the contradictions in their argument. VOTE, NOV. 2, 2010 “Take America back to the future”
