Angie May was right the first time – the “Re-elect No One” bumper sticker actually gives factually misinformed and nonsensically irresponsible civic advice. 

The “War on Poverty” declared by Democrat LBJ in 1964 was effectively ended by Republican Ronald Reagan in 1981—but several components continue today.

The Food Stamp Act of 1964 made that pilot project permanent. The Social Security Amendments of 1965 created Medicare and Medicaid, and expanded Social Security benefits for retirees, widows, and the disabled. 

In 2013, Columbia University economists reported that the U.S. poverty rate fell from 26% to 16% between 1967 and 2012, but would have risen to 29% without anti-poverty programs.  Yet, Republicans still want to drastically cut Food Stamps, “privatize Social Security”, and “end Medicare as we know it” by “voucher-izing” it.

Before “TeaPublicans” perverted Congress in 2010, Food Stamps and Unemployment Benefits had bipartisan support as fiscal policies that ameliorated economic downturns. 

Republican George Bush expanded the Food Stamp program, but “TeaPublicans” then refused to extend unemployment benefits – even though the GOP’s own failed “tax-cuts-fix-everything” economic policies precipitated increased unemployment and thus more poverty.

The DOE was created by Democrat Jimmie Carter in 1977 – “to assure good supplies of affordable energy” (particularly, nuclear and renewables), but Reagan campaigned to eliminate it – as symbolized by his removal of solar panels from the White House roof.

Gasoline prices peaked in July 2008 under Bush. 

The Post Office runs deficits only because Republicans want it to.

“ObamaCare” has successfully reformed – not “destroyed” – our health care system.

Republicans created our $17 trillion National Debt, but oppose every initiative to raise revenues and/or “grow our way” out of it – preferring to obstruct recovery and thereby gain partisan political advantage from their own cynical handiwork.

Thus, May should conclude that “Re-Elect No Republicans” is indeed “sensible advice”.

“Angie May was right the first time – the “Re-elect No One” bumper sticker actually gives factually misinformed and nonsensically irresponsible civic advice” so does Buffaloed Bill.

As has become sadly routine for the “not too Brights”—who see communists under their bed and in Colorado’s state house—Virginia offers no facts to support her aspersions.

Previously, her husband offered only threats of “punitive action” and a Bible quote to support his defense of Virginia’s nonsense—which affords ample proof of why they can’t be taken seriously.

Unfortunately, reciprocally reinforcing fact-free ignorance is locally contagious.

Mr. Hugenburg shows lack of moral character with his constant attacks on my Wife. She, Never having responded to him. I’m sure he finds it humorous and giggles like the little school girl he is when he types those responses. He continues to be a perfect Liberal making fun of my name, chiding in with erroneous comments and personal attacks on me. Instead of adding to the conversation he persists in being a black eye on the liberal point of view and a childish knothead with parasitic moral character. He is what’s wrong with the America we all live in today. Unable and unwilling to compromise is why the liberal contingent is facing such an overwhelming stonewall in Congress and in life in “America” today. Having views, morals, and legal process rammed down the throat of Americans is what is causing most of the problems. Somebody is saying no to the petulant Liberals. Having no business sense and no idea what makes America run is another problem liberals seem to have in abundance. Ya just can’t fix stupid.
Mr. Bright

Mr. “Not so Bright” shows his own lack of moral courage by hiding behind his wife’s
identity—“Virginia Bright”—to cast racist aspersions on President Obama, then assuming his own identity—“Not Mrs. Bright”—to take umbrage at my response.

I find nothing humorous in his references to “communists” or in his bubble-headed fact-free denigration of others’ opinions.

He continues to be a typical ignoramus, making fun of my name (“Buffaloed Bill”) while avoiding any discussion of the facts that contradict his ill-informed opinions.

Thus, instead of adding to the conversation, he persists in being a black eye of the local “conservative” movement and a childish knothead with a parasitic moral character.

While pairing his threat of “punitive action” with meaningless Bible quotations, he ignores Exodus 20:16 and the 8th/9th Commandments by bearing false witness against me, others, and President Obama.

Indeed, his hypocrisy is what’s wrong with the America we live in today.  Unable and unwilling to compromise is why the extremist evangelical “tea Party” contingent must resort to “stonewalling” in Congress.

Having common sense economic policies, moral imperatives, and legal processes rejected by irresponsible Republican politicians seeking partisan electoral advantage is causing most of the problems.  Sooner or later, the voters will say “No” to petulant obstructionists.

Having no real business sense and no idea of what makes America run is another problem ignorant bloviaters like Bright seem to have in abundance.

Ya just can’t fix self-imposed stupidity.

Dear Buffaloed Bill ( a moniker awarded after your numerous attacks on my wife and my name and myself), she has the subscription, I always sign my posting, you know it isn’t her, yet you attack woman, the lesser men do that. I am willing to meet you anytime face to face, hence you won’t be able to hide behind your lies. Do you still live in Denver, do you still think you are any kind of a man to attack me personally as such? I love pissin you off, it makes my day. I have things to do now. Enjoy the brownies at Starbucks.
Mr. Bright

More threats?  No more facts!!  As usual!!!

Dear dear Buffaloed Bill, you must live in a foreign country, or want to, maybe a place in Mazatlan? I offer to by you a coffee and a brownie and you make accusations of a demeaning manner. Typical Liberal, oh there’s that bad word again. I keep telling you to piss off and you keep making demeaning statements about my family and my name. Shut up, it’s that simple, oh wait, Liberal.
Thanks again for making my day, you’re an absolute hoot, you have to be acting, nobody can be that Buffaloed., Really? nah, your head would explode by now.
All the best, Mr. Bright

Recently, while I was working in the flower beds in the front yard, my neighbors stopped to chat as they returned home from walking their dog.
During our friendly conversation, I asked their little girl what she wanted to be when she grew up.
She said she wanted to be President someday. Both of her parents, Democratic Party members were standing there, so I asked her, “If you were President what would be the first thing you would do?”
She replied… “I’d give food and houses to all the homeless people.”
Her parents beamed with pride!
“Wow…what a worthy goal!” I said. “But you don’t have to wait until you’re President to do that!” I told her.
“What do you mean?” she replied.

So I told her, “You can come over to my house and mow the lawn, pull weeds, and trim my hedge, and I’ll pay you $50. Then you can go over to the grocery store where the homeless guy hangs out, and you can give him the
$50 to use toward food and a new house.”
She thought that over for a few seconds, then she looked me straight in the eye and asked, “Why doesn’t the homeless guy come over and do the work, and you can just pay him the $50?”
I said, “Welcome to the Republican Party.”
Her parents aren’t speaking to me anymore.
and there you have it Buffaloed, the difference between us
