Missouri Republicans, You're Killing Us Out Here

Seriously depressing news out of our state today and lately.

First this, from the Star:

GOP Missouri candidate says feminists have 'snake-filled heads,' wants fiancée to cook him dinner every night

Senate candidate wants daughters to be homemakers

More on this Right Wing, Republican clown:

And this wouldn't just be for wives, either, with this guy.

Republican Senate candidate is slammed for calling feminists 'she devils', saying his  daughters will be homemakers and that he expects his fiancée to cook him dinner every night

This would all be marvelous, sure, if maybe companies and business owners paid a good, true,fair living wage but in 2018 America, presently, that's not happening. Besides, this would only be great if it's an option. It shouldn't be commanded, as Mr. Sykes seems to want it.

Republicans, not done there, what we get from them and their philandering Governor:

Greitens’ budget speeds up Missouri’s slide to mediocrity

As so frequently happens with Republicans, as we saw in the last few years in Kansas, they want to slash taxes for the wealthy and corporations--because, hey, they just don't have enough--they also, then, cut education budgets, rather mindlessly.

Again, this is what we get with Republicans, folks.

Keep it in mind this coming November.

People Whom I Can't Understand Vote Republican

Herewith, a short list of people who I cannot, for the life of me, understand why they would be or call themselves or, God forbid, vote Republican.

  • Gays
  • Transgendered
  • Black Americans
  • Middle Class Americans
  • Lower Class Americans
  • Elderly (unless they're already wealthy, of course)
  • Women
  • People in the military
  • Veterans
  • Anyone with an education
  • Anyone who considers themselves to be Christian

I just don't get it.

God knows they're out there but...

Republicans? Really??

Think about this.

Locally, on the state level, and on the national level, what do Republican government representatives get us?

Let me give you some very recent examples. We have to look no farther than neighbor Kansas for some real beauties, to start.

In 2012, very Right Wing, "conservative" and Republican Governor Sam Brownback and his Republican Party statehouse members slashed taxes for the state for the already-wealthy and corporations. The results are now famous and disastrous.

The GOP Tried Trump-Style Tax Cuts 

in Kansas. What a Mess

I could post yet more but it would be overkill.

Then there's what the current Republican President and his Republican Party allies recently, infamously did in Congress with their very similar tax cuts for the, again, already-wealthy and corporations.

Senate tax bill would cut taxes of wealthy and increase taxes on

 families earning less than $75,000 by 2027

And here is what this tax plan will do.

Why stop there? Why not also effect people's health insurance and health care?

And this. Keep in mind, this is from the people who are supposed to be crazy about our national debt.

1.4467 trillion, 1.7 trillion.  Let's not quibble.

So that's what they do to us, we citizens, by state and nationally. Now, this is who they are personally.

Those are just two of the many I could post. That's enough. It shows who and what he is.

Then there are these guys, these also Republicans.

Remember Mr. "Wide Stance", back in 2007? Senator Larry Craig?

More recently, there's this guy--

That wasn't bad enough, the guy not only did this but was into sex trafficking, to boot.

Then there's this one, from Ohio.

Now, lately, recently, here on the Missouri, state level, we just had this little revelation from our new gonzo Governor Greitens.

I love this headline, true as it is.

Not only did he have an affair, which he admitted to, he's accused of trying to blackmail her--with pictures, I understand--to keep her quiet.


That is one heckuva list, folks.  And that's only a portion of what they do and who they show they are and repeatedly.

So between what they do to us all and who they seem to repeatedly show themselves to be, I have to ask America....

Why do we elect these people?
