<div class="ubbcode-block"><div class="ubbcode-header">Quote:</div><div class="ubbcode-body"> Joe gets up at 6:00am to prepare his morning coffee. He fills his pot full of good clean drinking water <span style='font-size: 14pt'>because some liberal fought for minimum water quality standards.</span> He takes his daily medication with his first swallow of coffee. His medications are safe to take because some liberal fought to insure their safety and work as advertised.

All but $10.00 of his medications are paid for by his employers medical plan because some liberal union workers fought their employers for paid medical insurance, now Joe gets it too. He prepares his morning breakfast, bacon and eggs this day. Joeís bacon is safe to eat because some liberal fought for laws to regulate the meat packing industry.

Joe takes his morning shower reaching for his shampoo; His bottle is properly labeled with every ingredient and the amount of its contents because some liberal fought for his right to know what he was putting on his body and how much it contained. Joe dresses, walks outside and takes a deep breath. The air he breathes is clean because some tree hugging liberal fought for laws to stop industries from polluting our air. He walks to the subway station for his government subsidized ride to work; it saves him considerable money in parking and transportation fees. You see, some liberal fought for affordable public transportation, which gives everyone the opportunity to be a contributor.

Joe begins his work day; he has a good job with excellent pay, medicals benefits, retirement, paid holidays and vacation because some liberal union members fought and died for these working standards. Joeís employer pays these standards because Joeís employer doesnít want his employees to call the union. If Joe is hurt on the job or becomes unemployed heíll get a worker compensation or unemployment check because some liberal didnít think he should loose his home because of his temporary misfortune.

Its noon time, Joe needs to make a Bank Deposit so he can pay some bills. Joeís deposit is federally insured by the FDIC because some liberal wanted to protect Joeís money from unscrupulous bankers who ruined the banking system before the depression.

Joe has to pay his Fannie Mae underwritten Mortgage and his below market federal student loan because some stupid liberal decided that Joe and the government would be better off if he was educated and earned more money over his life-time.

Joe is home from work, he plans to visit his father this evening at his farm home in the country. He gets in his car for the drive to dads; his car is among the safest in the world because some liberal fought for car safety standards. He arrives at his boyhood home. He was the third generation to live in the house financed by Farmers Home Administration because bankers didnít want to make rural loans. The house didnít have electric until some big government liberal stuck his nose where it didnít belong and demanded rural electrification. (Those rural Republicanís would still be sitting in the dark)

He is happy to see his dad who is now retired. His dad lives on Social Security and his union pension because some liberal made sure he could take care of himself so Joe wouldnít have to. After his visit with dad he gets back in his car for the ride home.

He turns on a radio talk show, the hostís keeps saying that liberals are bad and conservatives are good. <span style='font-size: 14pt'><u>(He doesnít tell Joe that his beloved Republicans have fought against every protection and benefit Joe enjoys throughout his day)</u></span> Joe agrees, "We donít need those big government liberals ruining our lives; after all, Iím a self made man who believes everyone should take care of themselves, just like I have". </div></div>

Our water, air, food and public health are all being sacrificed to enrich the Right's corporate cronies.

Water is our single most critical resource. Yet Republicans are using the latest budget bill as a weapon to strip away basic protections that help preserve the water resources we all depend on for survival, and they're also attacking our air, food, wildlands and health. </div></div> link (http://www.alternet.org/water/149956/republicans_are_using_the_budget_to_wage_a_massive _assault_on_the_environment_and_roll_back_crucial_ protections)

That would be quite convincing ... if any of it were the truth.

Bravo! An excellent Post. Truly points out the truth about the sheep, and the limits of their intellect.

Brings back the memory of the idiot signs I saw at the Tea pary Demonstrations, "No Socialism! Don't touch my medicare!" /forums/images/%%GRAEMLIN_URL%%/grin.gif

Yes. Republicans are the party of pollution and Cancer.
Against stem cell research!
Against human rights!
Against regulations to preserve, defend and protect our environment.
Against Middle Class Americans, the poor, the ill, the downtrodden, and against the Constitution Of The United States Of America!

The Grand Oil Party has held this country back from progress of all kinds, particularly in clean fuel exploration, and research, with a long history of protecting filthy energy policies, and destroying legislation to force corporate polluters to remove the toxins which the Oil Pigs, and other industries, continue to flow across this nation, which destroy the envrionemnt, and sicken the people and animals of the world.

Republicans have emboldened and protected enemies to our health and environement for decades.

The onslaught began when Ronald Reagan removed the solar panels from the roof of the White House, and it has continued to be the mantra of the Grand Oil Party, ever since.

THEY MUST BE STOPPED! They are literally killing us all!
