New (right wing) rule: YCOMTUAD

Do you remember when the right believed (wrongly) that arguing against the airing of a "docudrama" featuring admittedly invented scenes was "trampl(ing) the First Amendment"?

Now they're peeing their pants about a film featuring similar "smears" against Margaret Thatcher.

I probably won't see Meryl Streep's Margaret Thatcher "biopic" myself, but it would be nice if those on the right could be a tiny bit consistent about the need for truth in film. I guess the rule is you can only make things up about Democrats.

Gateway Pundit will be thrilled to hear that his influence is on par with a former president of the US.

Let's get real. There's a difference between a President pushing for changes in a film about an event and a pundit noting that the children of a political figure done up in a biopic are unhappy with how their mother has been treated.

Why would anyone need to smear Thatcher? She was evil incarnate.

Important Announcement: We Need You
Many people question what Obama has done, consider these accomplishments:
Decreased the national debt by 8% .
http://www.cbsnews.com/stories/2010/04/13/politics/washingtonpost/main6391441.shtml
In addition to stabilizing the Dow at above 10,000.

Though 80% are protected by private health insurance or medicare, the health care
insurance program was created to help protect the rest.

The challenge to solving the unemployment problem is not just creating industries that will
out-source jobs overseas, but to create industries that won't. The old way just doesn't work any more. Do you really think the Republicans are that innovative?

Obama's administration reformed the rules of the Wall Street financial industries. It's not
enough—I agree—but at least the Congress got something positive accomplished amidst
Republican objections. To view a list of 100 of Obama accomplishments, see:

What would Republicans do if they got into office:

Republicans support reinstating Bush tax cut for millionaires and billionaires, which would
deny the government $700 billion—sorely needed to combat the deficit the Republicans left us.

Republicans say it will be reinvested in the economy. But will it? It didn't happen last time. What a gamble, based on a theory. I say 'a bird in the hand is worth two in the bush'--no pun intended.

Some of the most radical Republicans have seemed to suggest 'gun play' if they lose; or
suggest ending social programs—like medicare and social security—because they're too expensive, while profiting from these very programs all these years; or that science is creating mice with fully developed human brains. And now some anti-abortionists are even suggesting citizenship for zygotes. Do we really want persons like this representing the American people?.

How will they improve the economy? All they do is complain about 'tax and spend'
Democrats. What's their plan? The new plan is just the old plan. While the conservatives were in power, during the past 10 years, America's middle class income has been reduced by 5%!

Many Conservatives have exhibited intolerance—similar to the KKK—currently directed
toward the Muslims and LGBT's, and sounds like they would limit freedom. This attitude is suggested by statements of 'Birthers', and a wealth of pictures depicting President Obama as a witch doctor or pimp or Hitler. Do you really want these kind of sentiments having an influence on our government? Changing the economy is not an easy job—ask Ronald Reagan. He had unemployment of about 9.8% for two years—and that was a mild recession compared to this near depression.

And Tea Party candidates are just going to be co-oped into the Republican Party. A vote for
them is just as good as a vote for the Republicans. It's them or us!

Dismantling or privatizing social security, medicare, and veteran's health care—how well
would that have worked, for example, when the bottom fell out of the stock market a couple of years
ago? We've all got a stake in this dog and pony show! Apathy is not allowed.

If you agree with what I've said here, go out and vote for the Democratic candidate in November, so we don't throw this country back into the Dark Ages.
