The signs of desperation are growing from the Left as they read the “Tea-leaves”. They see the sun is setting on the most radical Leftist administration to ever be elected in the United Sates. What galls them most is that this rejection is coming from middle working Americas who just two years ago bought into the false hope spewed out by Barack Obama.
With the implosion of the Obama Presidency, Democrats in Congress will be rejected in less than a month and the Left understands this will be a referendum on Obama himself. To them, this is but further proof that Americans are a helpless group that requires Progressives to shepherd them in the right direction. Some are becoming so unglued by this rejection that their deep-seated racism is bubbling to the top. Such is the case with MSNBC’s Lawrence O’Donnell who incredibly said on national television”
“As the first congressional election during his party chairmanship approaches, Michael Steele is dancing as fast as he can trying to charm independent voters and Tea Partiers while never losing sight of his real master and paycheck provider, the Republican National Committee.”
It would be nice if Leftist like O’Donnell would debate issues rather than using race to cover for their inability to do so.
Once again a Progressive has come out of the closet to express his true feelings on race. Mr. O’Donnell, you not only need anger management treatment, but also some sensitively training on race relations.

In another example of modern-day Progressive racism, Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid proclaims: “I don’t know how anyone of Hispanic heritage could be a Republican.” A link to a video of Reid’s statement is included below.
Besides being racists, Reid incorrectly stereotypes all those with a Spanish language heritage into a monolithic group. How preposterous!
Also linked below is a video by one Hispanic, Marco Rubio, who takes exception to Reid’s rant.
It is time for Progrssives to stop dividing Americans by race, gender or sexual preference. It is un-Constitutional, beside being racist.

Hold on to your horses; the Progressives are at it again. This time they have come up with a scheme called the Paycheck Fairness Act. Who could be against fairness in pay? However, this act has little to do with fairness and everything to do with the federal government socializing our economy, as well as fattening the pockets of the trial lawyers.
On Tuesday at the White House, Vice President Joe Biden was the Administration’s point-man for the next government intrusion into the private sector. Biden called on Congress to pass the Paycheck Fairness Act that would amend the Civil Rights Act of 1964. According to CNSNews.com, the act calls for the federal government to collect data about how much Americans workers are paid by requiring companies to provide data about pay relating to the sex, race and national origin of each employee. Below is the relevant language:
“(A) complete a survey of the data that is currently available to the Federal Government relating to employee pay information for use in the enforcement of Federal laws prohibiting pay discrimination and, in consultation with other relevant Federal agencies, identify additional data collections that will enhance the enforcement of such laws; and
“(B) based on the results of the survey and consultations under subparagraph (A), issue regulations to provide for the collection of pay information data from employers as described by the sex, race, and national origin of employees.”
Missing in either paragraph is any reference to job skills or for that matter any reference to job requirements. The omission is not an oversight. It is in keeping with the Progressives’ goal of socializing our economy. It is keeping with President Obama’s goal of redistribution of wealth. Remember Joe the Plumber?
Now back to Joe Biden who said: “Women make up nearly half of all workers on U.S. payrolls, and two-thirds of families with children are headed either by two working parents or by a single parent who works. Yet, the workplace has, for the most part, not changed to reflect these realities – and it must. Closing the gender pay gap, helping parents keep their jobs while balancing family responsibilities, and increasing workplace flexibility – these are not only women’s issues, they are issues of middle class economic security.”
While Biden’s facts may be correct, although he often botches them, his conclusion is based on the Progressives’ desires and not on any capitalistic reality. Taking Biden just a bit further down this path shows the lunacy of Progressive logic. I had the pleasure to attending a Masters’ degree graduation for speech therapists with 23 graduating, of which only one was a male. Under Biden’s logic this is a problem that society must address. Other examples: the last time I watched a professional hockey game it was dominated by Caucasians, while the NBA is dominated by people of color. Are we to correct these imbalances too? Preposterous!
Biden was not the only Wacko Progressive at this White House presentation. Attorney General Eric Holder stuck his two-cents in, pledging to crack down on businesses that discriminate against employees based on sex, race or country of origin. Let’s see; unemployment is stuck at near 10% and businesses are just not investing. Any guess as to how this additional burden will affect these problems?
While Progressives like Biden, Holder and Obama haven’t spent one day running a business or creating one job in America, they are ever so eager to use social engineering like a magical elixir. Unfortunately their potion is killing the patient.
