There was a diary not too long ago which told of paul ryan marching in a parade and basically blowing off a question from a constituent by offering the person some candy or a Packers schedule. Of course, we also heard about him holding his “town halls” before private paying audiences where he can avoid the questions of those who do not support his agenda. He has no answer for people who want to discuss the effect that the policies he supports would have on their lives. He has no answer because he doesn’t care. The effect his policies have on peoples’ lives is not a consideration for him.

It’s the same way rmoney balks when the destructive actions of bain are raised, and claims he’s being unfairly attacked. He feels it's unfair to claim he caused this damage deliberately when actually the effect on the employees was never a consideration. It was about “business”. It’s the same way w reacted when Cindy Sheehan asked to know the “noble cause” for which her son had died. The only reason w knew her son existed was because he was made to suffer the embarrassment of his being asked to account for his war policies, which he wasn’t about to do, of course.

When senator turtle or the great orange boner obstruct the workings of our congress, their political ideology overshadows the effect their obstruction has on the citizens they supposedly represent, despite the fact that a majority of citizens voted for President Obama and support his agenda.

None of those repug politicians live in our world and thus they don’t concern themselves with what happens to us as a result of their policies and actions. Their attention is focused on their world – the world in which the rich supply them with the means to obtain and keep their positions of power, and then welcome them to enrich themselves by selling their influence. That world has no room for our puny concerns. They couldn’t care less how it affects us when they sell our government out from under us.

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.

    when I see a republican on tv, I always think of Monty Python: "Shut your festering gob you tit! Your type makes me puke!"

    Conservative governance has not been connected to national interests of most any type, since Ford.

    they may start to notice.
    When the 48 percent becomes 49 percent they will start getting worried.
    When the 49 percent becomes 50 percent they will start changing their tune.
    When the 50 percent becomes 51 percent they will notice they have lost their jobs.

    I couldn't agree more.

    They live in a Bubble World. Filled with wine, cheese, and MONEY.

    Let us, as the progressive truth bringers we are, Burst that Bubble come 11/6.
