Seriously.  What the fuck is wrong with Republican politicans and the people that vote for them?  Where and how did they lose their sense of humanity?

I am pissed off.

And I hear you ask, reader, what pray tell tipped you over the edge?

Two things basically:

Not only did Republicans block Unemployment Extension for hundreds of thousand of people whose benefits expired (my husband is one of them)

but now this:

McCONNELL: Madam president, reserving the right to object and I will have to object on behalf of my colleague Sen. Coburn from Oklahoma. He has concerns about this legislation, particularly as he indicates in a letter that I’ll ask the Senate to appear on the record that it be paid for up front so that the promises that makes the Veterans are in fact kept. So madam president I object.

That, my friends, is the Senate Minority Leader blocking a bill that would help homeless veterans and their children.


What a fucking piece of shit.  Excuse my language.

Why do people keep voting for these assholes? They don't give a shit about the troops, in the battlefield AND NOT WHEN THEY COME BACK HOME.  

Are republican voters stupid?  They are constantly voting against their own self interest time and time again.  They buy into the republican bullshit of ONLY REPUBLICANS CARE ABOUT AMERICA.


Jesus.  Blocking a bill to help homeless veterans and their children?

I am a wife of a veteran.  This is particuarly offensive to me.  The fact that there exists ANY homeless veterans is a disgrace to this country.  But since there is they should be helped but the Republicans block any effort to try and at least do something.

Fuck them.

Add keywords that describe this diary. Separate multiple keywords with commas.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
