I took notice of the Houston Chronicle’s Sunday front page yesterday. Giant photo of Ted Cruz with the headline of his words:
“THE WHOLE WORLD CHANGED ON ELECTION DAY”
Indeed Ted and the Chronicle got that right.
Though this front page story is mostly about Ted Cruz changing from an anti-government/Washington bomb throwing outsider, to a full fledged member of the swamp. But hypocrisy is no longer an issue with Republicans, it like alternate facts and fake news are an asset. A facet to all cult members past and present and far and wide. Belief trumps reality.
In my lifetime it has always been that the central theme of Republican politics has been “NO MORE MR NICE GUY!” So what’s new? In the past there were outliners. Let’s see. Hmmm… Wait now… Oh yeah, in 1970 Nixon initiated the EPA and in 1976 Senator Bob Dole cosponsored a bill to increase food stamps. But since January 21 1981 NO MORE MR NICE GUY has been the Republican call to moral superiority. That’s 35 years of it. And now we have NO MORE MR NICE GUY regards all issues domestic and foreign under any condition, ever.
The main problem is regulations! You know those horrible things – everyone of which – protects the poor, the working poor and the middle class from millionaires and billionaires who work only for the next quarter profit margins. Oh and having to pay taxes. They hate that more than Hillary Clinton.
If I am not mistaken, everyone in the world believes health care should be outside the profit motive of corporate board rooms other than American Republicans. That would be 1.4% of the world population. They are exceptional, we are and exceptional country! And very proud of it. In a matter of months things will be getting far worse when they will be in control of all branches of government. So we are witnessing just the beginning of a NEW WORLD ORDER. Shall we call it The Fatherland or the Motherland? Should we change all those little white stars on the flag to little orange finger birds?
Remember the higher the profit margins for the top 1% the better off the rest of us are. For after all, all that profit goes to investing in themselves for more profit. And what hurts their profit margin most? Paying employees more than NO minimum wage.
