Patriotism & The Republican/Tea Party
What does Patriotism mean to Rich Republican Fat Cats and the Republican Party/Tea Party? I know, absolutely Nothing!!!
Rich Corporate Fat Cats tighten their fists around their marbles took flight and Banked them off-shore. Far away from paying a fair share of American Taxes. Far away from giving Banks the backbone to loan money to small businesses. Far, Far away in order to force the hands of Banks to make available predatory loans to innocent people. Banks who had the insight of a failing economy. Instead of reporting wrong doings by corporate bullies, the Banks stayed in the game selling the predatory loans to Wall Street Risk Takers. Those Wall Street Riskers were not dummies. They went to AIG
( The American International Group ) and purchased insurance on their risky loans. That positioned the Wall Streeter's in a you Win I Win, and you Lose I Win situation.
To the Republican/Tea Party the Grover Norquist Pledge became more important than the Pledge of Alligence to the American Flag. Grover Norquist's Pledge is the Kiss of Death for all who used to love the Republican Party. The Good Old Party is no more. The Party of President Lincoln has been spit upon. It is but trash to the 112th U.S. Republican Congress. Their power to create laws and make Americans' Proud was deminished by an Oath. Mitch McConnell ( minority leader in the U.S. Senate ) boast with the strength of a devouring Lion. " My Main Goal is to Make President Obama a one-term President "
So! What happened? President Obama took the Oath of Office for the Presidency. While the President was celebrating his Historical Win ( by being the first half black Mixed president ), Grover Norquist, Eric Cantor, Paul Ryan and Mitchell McConnell called a doomsday meeting to plot a deThrone the President plan. This chokehold information was sent to their Corporate Fat Cat Buddies. Take the safety net ( Social Security, Medicare and Medicaid ) from the under privileged. Pull the rug from under everybody else ( by out sourcing jobs off-shore ). Let them fall like dominoes and they will turn on President Obama.
And? And, Corporate Fat Cats closed down shop and sent American Jobs over seas ( to China, India...et tal ). Then they turned around a sold the American shops to China. China put a pad lock on the empty buildings. The Republican's blocked every people's aid bill that was voted on the floor of Congress with the blessings of John Boehner ( The Speaker of the House ). They almost destroyed the Banks, GM, AIG, Wall Street and the entire economy.
Oh My! Well, President Obama with his team of let's make America work. Jack-hammered enough holes in the Republican blockade by creating a stimulus package. A bill that bailed out the Banks, GM, AIG, Wall Street and produced much needed jobs. The Banks grudgingly and sparingly begin to loan money. General Motors ( GM ) is in full throttle again. AIG changed their name to AIU (American Intercontinental University ). Wall Street is back from hell's gate with the people's retirement plans intact. Private Sector Jobs are coming out in surprising numbers each month. That is awesome!
It would be except the Corporate Fat Cats are still out-sourcing Jobs. The Republican State Governors are laying off government workers. The doomsday summit puppeteers are sticking with their same old Grover Norquist game plan. President Obama is in a fight for the American People. He is a Patriotic American.
What about the Patriotism of the Republican/Tea Party? Most trampled on the the flag and the Country.
