I am a Democrat, FU


Have not posted for a while, forgive me PTS'ers. . . and. . . anyone seen spacedark or liberalator???

My acquisition of an existing firm happened Jan 15th, and I have been busy. New software, new hardware, client transitional meetings, staff training,. . . exciting. 6 months later than I wanted. . .my finances resemble a crater in fallout3 . . .

I have also made a tough decision. . . Now that I am the boss, I made it clear to my employees that I am a Democrat, Liberal. I am also a capitalist pig, LOL

I did not want to hear any Obama slamming, liberal slamming, non-Christian slamming, etc.

In return I would do the same. We are Americans FIRST here.

If anyone had a problem, they could resign (GULP, I did need them). They actually seemed OK, surprised but OK. Like many conservative parts of the country, they were confused. . . how could a liberal be a successful biz owner? Weren't tax and spend hippies plotting with Mao at this very moment to take our money, give it to welfare queens and to give terrorists lawyers?? WTF??

LOL. . .also went to see the Color Blind movie with Sandra Bullock. Great flick, but Kathy Bates says at one point, " I have to tell you. . . I'm a Democrat".

OK. . . from now on I am an in your face FU liberal. Here is my response if it comes up, "If you want competent and trustworthy, we are your firm. End of story."

I have some thoughts about the last 12 months too, but Helen from the margaretandhelen blog says it better

"To all my Republican readers out there – I have had quite enough of your nonsense.

Your party gave us Sarah Palin and George W. Bush – dumb and dumber. He’s the guy whose mission still isn’t accomplished and she’s the gal who couldn’t handle being governor of one of our least populous states. Even the “professional” wrestler was able to finish the job in Minnesota.

Your party had an issue with President Obama telling school children to stay in school and study hard. I guess a black man can’t be trusted with your children regardless of his credentials. And your party decided the tradition of separating church and state had an expiration date. You love the constitution but you seem to pick through that document the same way you pick through the Bible – with all the effectiveness of eating corn on the cob through a picket fence.

We are actively involved in two wars, but you just can’t understand why the deficit is so big? Regardless of what you have been told, every time a bomb is dropped, an angel does not get her wings. Hint: Defense spending represents almost one quarter of all federal spending.

Today’s Republican Party has an issue with abortion, but then fights against healthcare reform knowing full well that more than 9 million children lack health insurance. A stretch argument to be sure, but then again 18 19 Children and Counting is a big hit.

My party at least recognizes the need for increased access to birth control. Your party is pro-life right up until they cut the cord and then you turn your attention to electing judges who promote shortening the waiting time on death row.

And for Pete’s sake your party has an issue with gay people, but you gladly send your straight children to war while telling gays they cannot serve. This one, more than any other, has me scratching my head. Aren’ t you just delaying their eventual trip to Hell?

You actually have Rush Limbaugh and Glenn Beck as your spokesmen. Rush Limbaugh? Are you serious? Even the NFL didn’t want Limbaugh. And Beck… Glenn Beck? When people use the expression ”nuttier than a fruitcake” Glenn Beck is the main ingredient.

The Republican Party of yesteryear was respectable. You were all about a small government that carried a big stick. Now you are just despicable. You used to be the Party of Lincoln and now – honest to God – you make Archie Bunker look progressive.

If it wasn’t for Fox News you would be irrelevent. That’s right. You have become a party that owes its entire existence to a cable news channel owned by an Aussie. Your mascot should be a kangaroo instead of an elephant. After all, the last guy you sent to the White House arrived there thanks to a kangaroo court ruling rather than an election. He then spent the next 8 years bringing our nation to its knees. How about sitting down and shutting your damn pie holes long enough to see if the guy in office now can actually clean up your mess. Honestly, you are embarrassing yourself. "
