  •  Hate has become all too commonplace in our daily (7+ / 0-)

    lives. Words are slung around generously today that just a few years ago would have had us blushing collectively. We’ve advanced to be a society that rewards failure, relegates lying, cheating to status quo, encourages hate, sees education as evil, government as the enemy, regulation as treasonous, savings Insurance programs that citizens have been paying into for decades as entitlements, equality as a detriment to society, taxation as subversion, environmental preservation as conspiracy, science a charade, material means as our barometer of success and sex education as perverted.

    The white men’s ‘talking points’ are perpetuated by Mr. Limbaugh and others like him to mislead the American people to believe that self regulated-free markets is the answer to our economy, that the 40 year trickledown a success, that tax cuts are the only solution to help our country thrive, “starve the beast” to inspire the less fortunate, creationism as the truth, religion as the means to preserve our innocence, abstinence only, regulating women’s bodies and fighting to strip their fellow American’s constitutional rights is considered ‘real American’ while at the same time research, exploration and creativity are a cyst on society.

      the racists, the evangelicals, the domestic terrorists, the Republicans, Limbaugh (et al), the gun Cult (created by the NRA), the homophobes, the xenophobes, the Tea Party, and all other hate groups.

      Then they came for me - and by that time there was nobody left to speak up.
