Ladies and Gentleman – Your Republican Party

Here are a list of links about your Republican party that need to be shared, but that I did not have the time, patience or inclination to go into more detail. They however really do speak for themselves!

1. Five Missouri State democratic legislators(four of which are African American women) found rifle crosshair stickers on the office doors.

2. In Arizona(yes Jan Brewer's AZ) a police SARGENT posted a picture on facebook of a bullet riddled T-shirt with President Obama's picture on it!

The Secret Service is investigating an Arizona police officer over a picture he posted on Facebook that appeared to show President Barack Obama riddled with bullets.

Peoria’s Sgt. Pat Shearer admitted to KNXV that he took the photo of several young men — possibly minors — posing with guns and an Obama “Hope” T-shirt that had been destroyed by gunfire. The photo went viral after Shearer posted it to his Facebook page.

“Another trip to the ranch,” read the caption on the photo, according to Phoenix New Times. Comments on the photo included, “Damn it feels good to be a gangsta,” and, “They look like Gangsta’s huh?”

Two of the young men are holding what appears to be assault rifles and another is sporting a pistol.

“I don’t think that the shooting of that T-shirt is that big of a deal,” Shearer said. “It was more of a political statement.”

3. Anti American extremist Grover Norquist says that if President Obama does not extend the Bush tax cuts, he will have him impeached:

NJ: What if the Democrats still have control? What’s your scenario then?

NORQUIST: Obama can sit there and let all the tax [cuts] lapse, and then the Republicans will have enough votes in the Senate in 2014 to impeach. The last year, he’s gone into this huddle where he does everything by executive order. He’s made no effort to work with Congress.

Let’s make absolutely sure the republicans do not have the senate!!

4. Republican presidential contender Rick Santorum sought to limit malpractice awards for everyone but his wife(I know color me surprised):

On the campaign trail, GOP presidential candidate Rick Santorum says he will push to limit payments to victims in medical malpractice lawsuits, which he blames for unnecessarily driving up health-care costs. And over the course of his two decades in politics, he repeatedly spoke in favor of capping such awards.

But Santorum testified in support of his wife when she filed a medical malpractice suit in 1999 that sought $500,000, twice the cap in his 1994 legislative proposal. Karen Santorum claimed that a Fairfax chiropractor had left her with a permanent back injury that probably would result in a lifetime of pain medication and restricted mobility.

5. Leaders from the Catholic church have sent a letter to Republican presidential contenders Rick Santorum and Newt Gingrich, and asked them “to stop perpetuating ugly racial stereotypes on the campaign trail.”

Catholic leaders issued a letter Friday to GOP presidential candidates Newt Gingrich and Rick Santorum, themselves Catholics, urging them “to stop perpetuating ugly racial stereotypes on the campaign trail.”

The letter, signed by 45 Catholic leaders says:

Mr. Gingrich has frequently attacked President Obama as a “food stamp president” and claimed that African Americans are content to collect welfare benefits rather than pursue employment. Campaigning in Iowa, Mr. Santorum remarked: “I don’t want to make black people’s lives better by giving them somebody else’s money.”

“At a time when nearly 1 in 6 Americans live in poverty, charities and the free market alone can’t address the urgent needs of our most vulnerable neighbors. And while jobseekers outnumber job openings 4-to-1, suggesting that the unemployed would rather collect benefits than work is misleading and insulting,” the letter adds.

“This statement is urging prominent Catholics in the race to go back and look at church teaching,” John Gehring, the Catholic outreach coordinator at Faith in Public Life, tells The Florida Independent, adding “that the letter is also about poverty.”

“The Catholic bishops have been incredibly important in raising a prophetic voice that really challenges those who think that the free market alone can sort of solve our economic problems,” Gehring says.

“You have Catholic conservative leaders, like John Boehner, Paul Ryan, Rick Santorum, Newt Gingrich and they’ve all been looking to dismantle vital social safety nets,” Gehring says.
