GOP 2016: Fiorina Is Also Carnival Barking; The Tent Offers Horrors


Must watch MSNBC segment below!





MSNBC's Lawrence O'Donnell, The Last Word, broadcast a segment last night that for some reason the networks webpage developed decided not to post it to the website. Rather than post the most worthy piece from last night's show, someone at MSNBC'S website team decided to run a silly no and ignorant segment about a fisherman harassing a Mola Mola (Sun Fish) warranted a web spot. 

The downfall of MSNBC is seriously ugly and growing more inane and correspondingly uglier.  

The segment of which I speak is capture below as part of the full 43 minute episode. The salient segment starts at the 14:30 mark and ends at the 19:10 mark. what you will find between those segment marks is a well developed presentation about Carly Fiorina's involvement in what has been reported as a $4 billion dollar hit to US tax payers.

On a day when the CEO of Volkswagen resigned after revelations of an wide spread international scheme to hide actual exhausts readouts from its diesel engine cars, we are reminded of the fallacy of the CEO as a steward of "Corporations are people, my friend." These people are greedy corporate rock-stars who in many cases posses far less business acumen than the guy or girl serving you that Egg McMuffin. 


Carly Fiorina at the 14:03 to 19:10 marks






















The Daily Beast offers more details

Fiorina is a political mirage. She offers no record of accomplishment. The record she offers includes typical "vulture capitalist" tendencies. As is always the case with the"vulture capitalist" the middle class becomes the platform for personal riches while offering millions as sacrifice towards supporting corporate strategy. Her record is available review; it amazes some actually feel she is worthy of the GOP nomination.

Five years ago a weakened congressional candidate, Barbara Boxer, we poised to possible lose her congressional seat to Fiorina (behind millions personal dollars spent by Fiorina) until this ad ran just before the 2010 elections. 

Despite the possibility of a serious "ax-to-grind", I am going to offer a link to a piece in which her former husband offers additional perspective.

FROM ONE WHO SHOULD KNOW HER WELL, YES IDO UNDERSTAND THAT HE, HER EX - HUSBAND MAYVERY WELL HAVE AN AX TO GRIND, ON...

The Hillbilly Parade Reaches The Rock Group Survivor!


Huckabee's jailhouse spectacle included an authorized use of a popular theme song from the rock group Survivor.

After watching Donald Trump leverage his Mobile,Alabama fly-by to the tune of the rolling Stones "You Can't Always Get What You Want," with no caution from the mega rock band. It is refreshing to see Survivor's front-man stand tall.

TMZ is reporting the frontman for the rock group is livid the Huckabee/Kim Davis bigotry show (my words), played their mega hit "Eye of the Tiger", as the conservative showman and his new found hero awaited their spectacle in the sun outside a Kentucky county jail house.

If you watched that complete show, you are a far more resilient person than am I. You are also loose with your grey matter... as it was pure carnival show.

I wonder if Trump's use of "You Can't Always Get What You Want," will became an anthem for the eventual winner of the GOP nomination.

Hiring Surges: May Jobs Report Shows Why GOP Avoids Mention Of The US Economy



unnamed

CNN published an accompanying headline as follows:  

America has added over 1 million jobs in 2015

chart jobs report 060515


Two key points.

In addition to reinforcing GOP avoidance of any mention of the US economy the jobs report exposed  a failure of Rick Perry's speech writers.

Speech excerpt
Six years into the so-called recovery, and our economy is barely growing. This winter, it actually got smaller.Our economic slowdown is not inevitable, it is the direct result of bad economic policy.
The president’s tax and regulatory policies have slammed shut the door of opportunity for the average American trying to climb the economic ladder, resigning the middle class to stagnant wages, personal debt, and deferred dreams.
Perry is again running for a perch that is far beyond his effective level of mental acuity and well beyond his level of emotional intelligence. While his immediate quest is to win the GOP nomination and win the top perch via the votes of people who support voter suppression, one would also think Perry's writers would have left this out of his speech.

Six years into the so-called recovery, and our economy is barely growing. This winter, it actually got smaller.Our economic slowdown is not inevitable, it is the direct result of bad economic policy.
The president’s tax and regulatory policies have slammed shut the door of opportunity for the average American trying to climb the economic ladder, resigning the middle class to stagnant wages, personal debt, and deferred dreams.                               I know that America has experienced great change, but what it means to be an American has never changed: we are the only nation in the world founded on the power of an idea that all “are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness.”
Our rights come from God, not from government, and our people are not the subjects of government, but instead government is subject to the people.

Is it possible Perry's speech ;writers are so disrespectful of his audience and the party, they do not seek real data relative to the US economy? 




I digress for a GOP reality check.  

Let's see how the GOP candidates manage to avoid the US economy as they, almost to the candidate, saber rattle about war in the Middle East.
