An open letter to conservatives

Eeeeeeveryone’s been sending me this link, so here ya go. Long story short, if you want a detailed list of pretty much everything the right has been doing for the past few years, it’s here. Let me get you started.

You can’t spend more than 40 years hating, cutting and trying to kill Medicare, and then pretend to be the defenders of Medicare

You can’t praise the Congressional Budget Office when it’s analysis produces numbers that fit your political agenda, then claim it’s unreliable when it comes up with numbers that don’t.

You can’t vote for X under a Republican president, then vote against X under a Democratic president.  Either you support X or you don’t. And it makes it worse when you change your position merely for the sake obstructionism.

You can’t call a reconcilliation out of bounds when you used it repeatedly.

You can’t spend tax-payer money on ads against spending tax-payer money.

You can’t condemn individual health insurance mandates in a Dem bill, when the madates were your idea.

You can’t demand everyone listen to the generals when they say what fits your agenda, and then ignore them when they don’t.

You can’t whine that it’s unfair when people accuse you of exploiting racism for political gain, when your party’s former leader admits you’ve been doing it for decades.

Go. Read. Now.

  1. This is like starting a land war in Asia!…. seriously though, living across the pond I feel it is necessary that I bring up a gigantic problem that most Americans will dismiss. This is the collapse of the Greek financial system. It is undermining the Euro, which after the domino effect, will dilute the American dollar…..Seriously is a major problem. You should investigate it.

    • Wasn't conversion to the Euro what undermined the Greek financial system? And is now undermining the Spanish financial system?

  3. Can't? You keep using that word. I do not think it means what you think it means.
