Stacey Campfield just another ignorant, self-serving, stupid asshole that Tennessee Republicans put in the state legislature.
I live in Tennessee, and let me tell you, it sucks. The damned Republicans were hollering the Democrats wanted death panels just to cover their own tracks. It's really the Republicans who want death panels. They want to take away social security, medicaid and foodstamps. They know this will cost lives, and they simply don't care.
I'm a resident too and yes I agree it sucks.
Republicans are ike a bunch of monkeys throwing shit at a barn. Sooner or later, something might stick. So over and over again, that's what they do. All of their bizarre pronouncements, made up facts - also called lies - and all of their screaming and hollering about stuff is just a bunch of monkeys doing what monkeys do.
What makes me sick is that a lot of people like monkey antics and vote for them.
I don't think Republicans are one of the smarter monkey species. Or one of the cuter types. Maybe macaques.
It's sort of like that theory of random chance, if you have an infinite number of monkeys sitting at an infinite number of computer keyboards, for an infinite length of time, at some point one of them is going to write the software for WIndows 8.0.
Except with the Republican shit-slinging monkeys, if there are an infinite # of monkeys slinging shit at an infinited # of barns, at some point one is going to say "Look - that shit looks just like the Virgin Mary! It's a miracle! That monkey is a genius! Or both!" When the rest of us know it's just shit stuck to a barn wall.
Daniel, I had a dream last night. It looked like a few particles of dust came into my room. I rubbed my eyes and there they were just supported in the air. Suddenly I heard a voice say, "don't you recognize me? I'm the Virgin Mary." I had to admit that her appearance had changed over the years. I was also wondering how particles of dust could be supported in the air and how they could talk. She told me that I make things too complicated.
Yes, "we are all gonna die in Fema concentration camps." (I've heard it too.) Who is protecting us then? Is it GOD?
People are so confused on Obamacare to the point that my own stepfather says that is the healthcare plan that I chose. I'm almost 68 years old. I'll give you one guess as to what healthcare plan I have. Here's a hint. What "plan" does most people my age without money have?
I go to the page with this article about the senator and I see another problem. It says down by the bottom of that page that "American has the best healthcare system in the world." That's a lie! Google it to see. The truth is, America has the best healthcare "technology" in the world. See what a difference it makes to simply remove one word.
What I really find to be amusing is how often the GOP like to use shocking “Oh No! He didn’t say that!” kind of metaphor as a means of comparing things that share little or no similarity.
“A Tennessee state senator thinks it's unwise for the Obama administration to brag about how many Americans have signed up for health insurance under the Affordable Care Act, likening it to the Nazis touting how many Jews were shipped to concentration camps.”
Even in the rest of the article Campfield never managed to clear up how the two compare. Maybe next time he’ll try for something even more shocking like,
“Republican senator likens Obamacare to getting a barbed wire enema”.
i've come to the conclusion that the GOP and it's supporters have become a truly dangerous and scary political party, replete with it's own propaganda network and web allies. why the public is so forgiving is beyond me. after the gov't shutdown the polls reflected deep disapproval of Republicans, but a mere 3 months later that diminished. they get caught blatantly lying, saying awful shit, and going against the wishes of the American people and it seems that their punishment will be getting more control in DC. i suppose this means people aren't really paying attention.
maybe it's b/c they aren't in power on the national level, but what about the states? just to offer a few examples:
what happens if they win total control of the federal gov't? i have a feeling their toxic stew of ideas will meet swift backlash among the American people - yet i fear they won't care and it could pave the way to a truly fascist state. they're dangerous, and i wish more people knew it.
