As in the song "Lawyers In Love" we have a land, a nation with too many in high places willing to do anything for money neglecting people, honor and principle but a change is coming. No more falling for the lie of living only individualistic and independent lives leaving us divided and conquerable by powerful special interests but a people, a nation collaborating for the greater common good in various groups all across the nation. A land of people working together to help one another with a vision moreover as Jesus would have us be. Love, Mercy, Forgiveness, Kindness....something about another Land. The change is coming

McCain/Palin Down to The South In The Mouth or "how the Republican religious right lost their moral authority"

The Republican right and "religious" right are back at it again swiftboating in with their usual underhanded unchristian sleeze tactics, so characteristic of their corrupt service to the love of money, using lies, inuendo and slander to attack anyone opposed to their agenda with Sarah Palin, who professes christianity, jumping in exaggerating and distorting facts in order to tie Obama to a former domestic terrorist believing if she says it the religious right will believe it just like they wrongly believed it when Bush tied Iraq to responsibility for 9-11. Wrong then, wrong now, the same old stuff from the last 8 years and the same old fear mongering exaggeration and distortion of facts that was spawned in the south at town gatherings to go out and round up the local blacks for a lynch'in. McCain/Palin(cringe..a christian?) might as well utter "Hey BillyJo Bob what a we gonna do 'bout that boy Obama cavort'in around with dem communist New Yorker types" The facts and all involved say Obama was in no way close to this former 60's radical now a college professor but how pathetic as these two candidates for the presidency of the United States sit there on a T.V. interview pretending to let us in on what they want us to think they know about Obama. In the time of crisis when the going gets tough the Republican religious right revert back to the ways of the cowardly old south.

Informed 21st century Americans know that Barack Obama is a lifelong christian and as a candidate for president received millions of dollars in campaign contributions from hardworking capitalist corporations and businesses coveting the luxuries of their labor as they hand over their money to Obama but already what you hear from the laughable republican religious right is Obama the socialist, Obama the muslim and rightwing talk show pundits railing on about Obama's minister when many religious right ministers have already called for essentially the same thing, punishment of America. Lastly you have Palin so desperate that she engages in some of the most scurrilous dishonest slander discrediting her own christianity. The Republican religious right have no honorable agenda or issues to debate with so tactics such as slander become their last refuge even before the fight has began but such is the weakly deluded spirit of those in service to money. Oh yes and when that does not work they try to shut you up and shut you out of debate completely.

Under this power of money with the blessing and help of the Bush-Republican controlled FCC, rightwing Republican oriented corporations bought out the radio airwaves shutting down dissent to the extent that 95% of radio talk shows are republican rightwing slanted, and in many cases extremely so, inundating working class listeners with the same onesided diatribe day in and day out. This is why the Republican party and it's religious right associates have had any chance of running competitive in presidential elections; only their side of the story is heard. Virtually unopposed on the airwaves they feel free to offer up any list of lies and slander to their listeners coming back day after day unchecked and therefore unembarrassed by others that would call their hand on the radio airwaves. You see, this is why you always hear some at work openingly and freely expressing their Rush Limbaughisms, they think that it is safe to say it at work since, in their mind, there must be no other opinion out there to contradict them and of course as so often is the case, these ditto head expressions sound very favorable to management. Been there, seen that too many times. The punitive nature of free expression of political opinions at work and the resulting manipulative effect is a whole other story.

Without this landslide bias in radio land the rightwing of the Republican party would have surely been dust long before now and it is a testament to how our present administration and previous Republican congress, the most corrupt congress in U.S. history, got away with so much lopsided favor to the very rich, widespread corruption and immoral war for so very long. Lies, inuendo and slander are their tools for acquiring power but with these kind of dishonorable methods and cowardly tactics the Republican religious right before all to see forfeit their moral authority and undermine their spiritual authority and if that were not enough, in reaping what they sow, give all comedians plethoric fodder as the continuing brunt of jokes.
