The radical, religious right is so destructive, I don't know why they are thriving. Someone surely must have pushed the self destruct button on America. Enter these people. They are so couched in stupidity and regressive thinking, it's more than appalling or alarming. It's dangerous and the tea party people are terrorists to those of us who believe in the constitution and our rights as defined therein. These people are nothing more than a politicized version of the Ku Klux Klan, spreading their hatred for women and their bigotry against the poor, the atheists, in short, anyone who has an opinion that isn't short-sighted and without facts. These guys should be force smoked medical marijuana until their eyes adjust to some kind of light, because they are stumbling blind in trying to lead our country.
Ray Nagin was found guilty of 20 of the 21 counts of fraud and racketeering here in New Orleans. I feel emotionally charged about this. New Orleans was basically underwater, and this guy is brokering back room deals that line his pockets, while people died or lost everything. Talk about a grifter. How did this guy fall so low? Its worrisome, because at one time, Ray Nagin was the great black hope of New Orleans. He squandered his greatness opportunity for thirty pieces of silver. I'm anxious to see how he will be sentenced. He's really not that different from a lot of Washington politicians, who just pander themselves in a more subtle fashion. At least, they manage to hide the bodies before the media gets a chance to record the deaths.
At this point, it is my belief that we cannot save America and it should be dismantled. We need to hand this country back to the Native Americans we stole it from, and let them sort out the mess. Although that, in itself, is a cruel and unusual punishment to lay on anyone.
