Recently Sarah Palin, the tepid saint of the Tea Party, came out with an astonishing statement.
She thinks that waterboarding torture is o.k. for terrorists, and claims that it is a mere “baptism.”
Does this include American terrorists? Like Timothy McVeigh, a white and delightsome American citizen, or is torture by baptism reserved for brown skinned non American non Christian atheists?
Palin is about as effective in her political strategy as a used decaf tea bag.
Now Rand Paul, on the other hand is aiming for the Presidency and seems to think that he can vote no on everything to get there.
Some examples are-
No on access to Medicare
No on nominee for CIA director
No on disaster relief
No on “no budget no pay” HR325
No on disability relief
No on FISA amendment
No on National defense in 2012
No on Convention on Rights of Persons with Disabilities
No on Small Business and jobs tax relief act
No on requiring labels on food with GMO ingredients
No on agriculture reform and Food stamps and jobs in 2012
No on increased funds for fresh fruit and veggies in schools
Yes on limits to nutritional assistence
No on repeal of sugar subsidy
No on student loan rates extension
No on S2985 that repeals limit on use of funds for alternate fuel
No on cyber security act 2012
No on contingency appropriations 2013
No on middle class tax cut
Yes on tax hike prevention
The total of all these actions give a portrait of a man beholden to big business, big food companies, big energy companies and rich Republicans.
He is not afraid to vote against women and chikdren’s welfare, and keep the poor down in the basement of economic opportunity.
If a bill is for the welfare of anybody but the wealthy it is sure to have his “No” vote.
What a champ!
