  • Moral Cowardice

    Republicans are bald-faced supporters of the Supreme Court ruling in the Citizens United case that allowed as speech the right of corporations to spend virtually unlimited amounts of money to help political candidates. This was when the GOP saw itself as the champion of commerce, job creation, business and free speech. Not anymore; Get this:
    “So my warning, if you will, to corporate America is to stay out of politics,” McConnell told reporters at a news conference in Louisville. “It’s not what you’re designed for. And don’t be intimidated by the left into taking up causes that put you right in the middle of one of America’s greatest political debates.”

    How dumb do you have to be not to see the repugnant moral cowardice that rules the Republican Party? Fiscal responsibility? HAR! Deficits rise relentlessly under Republican budgets because they refuse to pay their bills. Equity markets? HAR! They do less well under Republican administrations because markets discount the future cost of the economic illiteracy that is a hallmark of GOP ideology. Law and order? HAR! Time and time again they yammer about threats to Democracy from the left, but it was their white trash mob that attacked our Capitol. Freedom? Give me a break! The only freedom Republicans want is the freedom to be Republican. And they'll steal voting rights in broad daylight to do it, and as they do it they'll whine like bitches when the corporations they have fellated for decades publicly turn against them.

    "Corporations are people too, my friend." ~ Mitt Romney

    So it makes perfect sense to try and steal the free speech/dollar vote from corporations ....... if you're a moral coward, which they are.

    Are you a moral coward or are you just an airhead? If you support Sidney Powell, Congratulations! you're one or the other.

    1. If you think Trump actually won "by a landslide" and Powell was legally and morally justified in filing so many lawsuits, then now that she's being sued for it you're constrained to reject her defense that "No reasonable person" would have believed her lies and bullshit. and remember, she's talking about you.

    2. If you think that both her actions and her defense are not only coherent but morally justified then you outed yourself as a mental midget.

    3. If you think she was lying all along and this is just politics and you're perfectly content because it might have kept Trump in power then you're both a coward and an imbecile.

    4. If you're pleased that the "Big Lie" has led to all the GOP's efforts to rob Americans of their voting rights then you're just a disgusting piece of shit.

      I think you are a loser if you let any of them control your life. I like a wholesome influence to be spread across the masses. That being responsible.

        Fortunately that freedom is never in dispute, unless of course someone wants to introduce a strawman diversion.

        Diversity being an absolute good is virtuous absolutely? That's an interesting if creepy endorsement of diversity of cowardice.

        "Don't tell me what you're free from ; tell me what you're free for." Then act in such a way as to posit a universal law to hold regardless of consequence.

              In 2016, poor health strongly predicted Trump voting. A county's rate of diabetes, alcohol consumption, obesity, etc. predicted its propensity to vote Trump *even better* than race/education. https://thehealthcareblog.com/blog/2017/01/0

              Barack Obama tried to give them access to healthcare and he incentivized precautionary testing to catch diseases and other health issues early. Michelle Obama made every effort to get their kids to eat healthy in school and at home as well as exercise. These voters called it socialism and communism and the hatred of freedom. Their backlash was to elect a Trust-fund baby who doesn’t give a shit about his own health and diet, and certainly doesn’t give a shit about theirs. But he was white and pretended to be good at business so they created a death cult around him.

                That makes total sense. Clearly they want to live a life of glutton and vanity. Aren't those deadly sins? This goes against the teachings of the good book.

                  These are the wretches who believe Biden banned meat and that copies of Kamala Harris' book was given to immigrant children.

                  Right wing media is a sewer and for these people it's the only food they can afford so it's no wonder they suffer such ill mental health.

                    I actually enjoy listening to right wing media. The entertainment value is priceless. I love how they use the constitution and god to throw a blanket over the elephant in the room. People that are obsessed with judging people and controlling what we do. Like the great Tucker who says we must confront people with mask on outside. He said to politely, but firmly tell them to take their mask off, or call the police and child services if your child has a mask on. Once again this is judge other people and harass strangers because you think they should live a certain way. Good luck if you follow his advice. I am sure it will go over well. Yet at the same time they claim to be loosing freedom while wanting to tell people what to do in a free country. Now he believes in science? It is funny and sad all at the same time.

                      Tucker The Cuck's problem is that his audience is dying and he has to jack up the false outrage and volume to achieve ever falling absolute viewership. It's the identical problem of the Republican Party writ large: America's population growth is slowing down and the old fearful GOP codgers are dying of old age at a relentless daily rate, and the generations replacing them ..... Millenials (the largest generation by population) and Gen Z are soo inclusive, permissive, progressive, and geared toward social media and tech companies that tell the GOP to bugger off. Now that large wealthy corporations no longer let the GOP tell them what's important the right wing is freaking the fuck out everywhere we look.

                      It's a thing of rare beauty.

                        Very rare indeed. I never thought I would live in such a time in history. Very glad to be a witness to what goes around comes around. I don't understand the pride and unwillingness to communicate. Tucker does his entire show with his brows in angry mode. You are right about creating false outrage, this has been a problem and a trick played on people for many years. The sheep show up with pitch forks as soon as the news is out. We are fortunate that this is only a small percentage at this point in history. Hopefully everyone will come to their senses and come to the table. Most would be forgiven, but the same things keep happening, so it is hard to forget.

                          Another interesting and telling example: Ted Yes We Cancun Cruz. He's announced in the Wall Street Journal he will no longer take corporate donations.

                          This is the point in the drama when Republicans usually shrug their shoulders, call these companies ‘job creators,’ and start to cut their taxes.
                          Not this time.
                          This time, all of a sudden they won’t look the other way on Coca-Cola’s $12 billion in back taxes owed.
                          This time, when Major League Baseball lobbies to preserve its multibillion-dollar antitrust exception, they’ll say no thank you.
                          This time, when Boeing asks for billions in corporate welfare, they’ll simply let the Export-Import Bank expire.


                          It’s worth pausing on this shift in conservative catechism, because of the cynicism it reveals. Cruz is saying that, all this time when Republicans were claiming that corporations were ‘job creators,’ it was really just code for ‘they send me cash.’ And it seems we are to conclude that Republicans knew all about Coke owing back taxes and winked at it in the name of political compatibility and campaign contributions. Remember all those GOP defenses of the Export-Import Bank as a pillar of U.S. competitiveness when libertarians and good-government types called for its abolition? Cruz is now telling the world that it was a sham. It was all a quid pro quo.

                          Moral cowardice thy name is Republican.

                            Pretty sure lying Ted is butt hurt over corporations punishing them for voter suppression. He is the guy dangling his feet off the back of the trump wagon thinking about how he can move up to the front seat. You can see he changed his look from car salesman to big game hunter to play the part. Now he is gearing up for a miss fire. I am sure some are pushing him to run for president and he will spend the next four years telling us what is wrong with the current administration. He will make a bold statement at least once a month for some attention.
