I am so tired of the vitriol shown to our President and the liberals in general by the conservatives. They criticize everything President Obama has ever uttered and anything his pen has ever touched....across the board.
The conservatives have used previous congressional rules to filibuster against and block bills attempting to improve and judicial appointees who would reduce the judicial logjams we current experience. Anything...anything this president has attempted to do as part of his vision-the exact same vision that the majority of this countries citizens voted to approve-they have blocked.
But the truth is, if this was a conservative government in the Oval office with the exact same record as President Obama, they would be bragging about it as conservative victories....victories such as,
increasing jobs and reducing the unemployment rate
avoided a second great depression
cutting into our national debt and deficits
college student tax cuts
ended "enhanced interrogation" methods
created 4.5 million private sector jobs in 2010 alone
collected over 10 billion in fines levied to the oil/coal industries
fined BP 4.5 billion for the oil spill in the gulf
banned BPA in our plastics
levied severe fines to the financial sectors for mortgage fraud
required foreign banks to disclose American accounts and taxed them accordingly
abolished don't ask don't tell and ended the ban on females in combat
cut prescription drug costs by 50% for Medicare recipients
economy now growing and the stock market at record highs
saved the US auto industry
reformed student loan program
tax cuts for 3.5 small businesses
HealthCare for millions without coverage
no penalty for pre-existing conditions
children under 25 can stay on parents health plans
7 million homes with solar panels
green industry loans and cuts to spur on business starts
chemical agreement with Syria who is destroying weapons
nuclear agreement with Iran including inspections
and on and on....
The worst President ever? If there were a conservative President in office, they would be touting this record as one of the best records ever. And if the liberals in congress had the same record as the conservatives over the past two terms, the conservatives would be screaming bloody murder.
 Lib-tards my ass. Go screw yourselves. You aren't fooling anybody.
And that's the world...the World According to Kimba.

Subsidies to companies who pay sub-standard, non-living wages to their employees who are forced to turn around and apply for government subsidies so they can afford to pay rent, heat their place of residence and can somehow manage to feed their families?
Subsidies to mega-corporations who rake in billions in profits? Why? The very corporations that refuse to assist working Americans who toil all day, and at the end of the day cannot afford to feed their own families?
We need to audit where our money goes. Audit and make transparent where our money is being spent. In layman's terms. So everyone can understand the illogic of it all. And then we need to place the blame on whomever is responsible for it.
We need to end this ridiculous notion that all those on food stamps are eating lobster and swilling fine wine on the government tit.
We need to end the bigoted notion that food stamps are going to lazy minorities. We need to change the picture in the minds of many Americans that food stamp recipients are lazy men wearing wife beaters sitting on their porches, gut protruding, drinking a Colt 45, smoking a Newport and watching their 8 dirty kids play in their filthy yards.
We are the richest country in the world, and many...millions in fact, struggle to feed their families. We are the richest country in the world, and many of our children go to bed hungry at night. Can't sleep because they see the struggle their parent(s) go through daily in trying to make ends meet. Trying to cope with the failure they feel when dinner is a cup of Top Ramen. Trying to cope with the failure that comes when they cannot afford health insurance for their children....or cannot afford proper clothing for their children...or cannot find a decent job that will match financially their willingness to work.
And for many, these parents go to sleep with the knowledge that the taxes they pay from their meager wages are returned in subsidies to the very corporations they work for...the very corporations that refuse to pay living wages.
Talk about irony. The irony of working for a huge billion dollar corporation, toiling to prepare food for thousands of customers only to get off work unable to afford the very food they have prepared all a billion dollar corporation that is at the very vortex of the financial spiral they struggle to cope with on a daily basis.
We need to raise the minimum wage. We must guarantee that everyone who is willing to work will receive a living wage...not lobster money, but enough for a nutritious meal, a decent place to live and a chance to recapture the ultimate human right...the right to a little dignity and a sense of self worth.
We are the richest nation on earth...a nation too rich to leave anyone left behind. A place where no one gets left behind.
It's time to fight the war against poverty rather than fighting a war against poor people. Because they are Americans...the sick, the unemployed, the elderly, they are our veterans and yes, our children. And they are hungry and live in the richest nation on earth. They need not be left hungry, alone....and behind. E pluribus Unum...out of One nation, under God...indivisible with liberty and justice for all....and if I might, I would like to insert dignity. These people deserve our help, and a little dignity along with a decent hot meal from time to time. And anyone who objects is a selfish bastard. We can easily do this.
And that's the world...the "World According to Kimba." Thanks for reading.
