WAKE UP, LEMMINGS!

According to a recent survey of 62 real economists by the Wall Street Journal, it is not the instability of China’s stock market, or its move to devalue its currency, or the Greek Eurozone crisis, or the possibility of the Federal Reserve finally raising interest rates. What frightens a great majority of the nation’s leading economic experts most of all is that the Republican-controlled Congress will “precipitate another fiscal crisis this fall” when Republicans plan to either shut down the government unless Planned Parenthood is destroyed, or hold the debt ceiling hostage until Planned Parenthood is destroyed. It is important to note that the push to put an end to Planned Parenthood has nothing to do with the economy, debt and deficit, national security, jobs, or economic growth; it is about legislating and enforcing an extremist religious policy.

All politicians are NOT the same. Both parties are not the same.

We Can’t All Just Get Along

In our era of polarization, one party is guiltier than the other.

I hate Republicans. I can’t stand the thought of having to spend the next two years watching Mitch McConnell, John Boehner, Ted Cruz, Darrell Issa, or any of the legions of other blowhards denying climate change, thwarting immigration reform or championing fetal “personhood.”

This loathing is a relatively recent phenomenon. Back
 in the 1970s, I worked for a Republican, Fred Lippitt, the senate minority leader in Rhode Island, and I loved him. He was a brand of Republican now extinct—a “moderate” who was fiscally conservative but progressive about women’s rights, racial justice and environmental preservation. Had he been closer to my age, I could have contemplated marrying someone like Fred. Today, marrying a Republican is unimaginable to me. And I’m not alone. Back in 1960, only 5 
percent of Republicans and 4 percent of Democrats said they’d
 be “displeased” if their child married someone from the opposite
 party. Today? Forty-nine percent 
of Republicans and 33 percent of
Democrats would be pissed.

According to a recent study by Stanford professor Shanto Iyengar and Princeton researcher Sean Westwood, such polarization has increased dramatically in recent years. What’s noteworthy is how entrenched this mutual animus has become. It’s fine for me to use the word “hate” when referring to Republicans and for them to use the same word about me, but you would never use the word “hate” when referring to people of color, or women, or gays and lesbians. 

And now party identification and hatred shape a whole host of non-political decisions. Iyengar and Westwood asked participants in their study to review the resumés of graduating high school seniors to decide which ones should receive scholarships. Some resumés had cues about party affiliation (say, member of the Young Republicans Club) and some about racial identity (also through extracurricular activities, or via a stereotypical name). Race mattered, but not nearly as much as partisanship. An overwhelming 80 percent of partisans chose the student of their own party. And this held true even if the candidate from the opposite party had better credentials.

How did we come to this pass? Obviously, my tendency is to blame the Republicans more than the Democrats, which may seem biased. But history and psychological research bear me out.

Let’s start with the history. This isn’t like a fight between siblings, where the parent says, “It doesn’t matter who started it.” Yes, it does.

A brief review of Republican rhetoric and strategies since the 1980s, shows an escalation of determined vilification, which has been amplified relentlessly on Fox News since 1996. From Spiro Agnew’s attack on intellectuals as an “effete corps of impudent snobs”; to Rush Limbaugh’s hate speech; to the GOP’s endless campaign to smear the Clintons over Whitewater, then bludgeon Bill over Monica Lewinsky; to the ceaseless denigration of President Obama (“socialist,” “Muslim”), the Republicans have crafted a political identity that rests on a complete repudiation of the idea that the opposing party and its followers have any legitimacy at all.

[Personally, the author could very easily have interjected Reagan's vilification of the government as a means of political expediency, as well as Newt Gingrich's introduction of vile discourse in the realm of Congress, where he relentlessly embarked on sarcastic name calling of his adversaries, including then President Clinton.]

Why does this work? A series of studies has found that political conservatives tend toward certain psychological characteristics.

What are they? Dogmatism, rigidity and intolerance of ambiguity; a need to avoid uncertainty; support for authoritarianism; a heightened sense of threat from others; and a personal need for structure. How do these qualities influence political thinking?

According to researchers, the two core dimensions of conservative thought are resistance to change and support for inequality. These, in turn, are core elements of social intolerance. The need for certainty, the need to manage fear of social change, lead to black-and-white thinking and an embrace of stereotypes. Which could certainly lead to a desire to deride those not like you—whether people of color, LGBT people or Democrats.

And, especially since the early 1990s, Republican politicians and pundits have been feeding these needs with a single-minded, uncomplicated, good-vs.-evil worldview that vilifies Democrats.

So now we hate them back. And for good reason. Which is too bad. I miss the Fred Lippitts of yore and the civilized discourse and political accomplishments they made possible. And so do millions of totally fed-up Americans.

A long read but very well worth it, in my opinion. --- Warning: Strong stomach required.

How do you sell Dystopia as Utopia? 
With lies & propaganda, of course!

This is a great article by Mariah Blake on the willful negligence that has led to the nearly 100% of the planet's population being exposed to the toxic and carcinogenic chemical known as "C8" (perfluorooctanoic acid, or PFOA).  It's also a great story of the tireless efforts of a handful of people - former employees, neighbors, farmers, etc- that worked to make sure that this whole thing was not swept under the rug by the chemical industry and DuPont.

Typical things that expose us to C8: stain resistant carpets, carpet cleaning liquids, Teflon cookware, microwave popcorn bags, Gore-Tex, floor wax, treated upholstery, clothing, and furniture, etc., food contact paper & wrappers, and dental floss.

Highlights include that DuPont knew about the health risks for nearly 50 years and did everything they could to cover it up and side-step their responsibilities to the public.  While finally caught red-handed and ordered to pay the victims, communities, for clean up and even further research, etc. they still are doing everything possible to stall the actual restitution.  One legal firm hired to administer funds to people has used $9 million while delivering $50,000 so far to victims, to give you an idea of how that's going.

Other standard Industry tricks, like hiring "regulatory strategists", lobbyists, public relations firms, and paying for narrowly focused scientific research meant to cast doubt on anyone or anything said against their "better living with chemicals" philosophy, and spin things to appear in their favor, as well as finally, creating a new subdivision within their corporate legal structure to hopefully distance themselves from the full legal, financial, and social consequences of their bad-actor behavior.

There's a movie in here, that I hope gets made so that more people are aware of this.

Oh, almost forgot the good news:  2015 marks the final year of the phase-out of C8.  It has been replaced with the also largely exempt (grandfathered) or untested variants, like C6, C7, C5, etc.

Considering that FEMA funds cannot be used to rebuild other non-profits, isn't it clear that this bill shows favoritism for religion?

People, self-government isn't something you just practice at the voting booth. It's something that requires work on your part and constant vigilance to protect and nurture. The absolute least you can do is type a few keystrokes and click a mouse and you should be doing a whole lot more.

HR 3066, introduced by Rep. Christopher Smith (R-NJ) would create a new carve-out for houses of worship to receive money from FEMA to rebuild. This bill would continue to deny rebuilding funds to secular non-profits, such as libraries, museums, and community centers, all organizations that play vital roles in the community.

I don't know why I'm wasting any time on this loser.

Experts “across the political spectrum” were not impressed and have labeled the messaging “childish” and “harmful”. In other words, your basic Republican foreign policy.

The conservative National Review reported:

"China experts across the political spectrum are not keen on Republican presidential candidate Scott Walker’s demand that President Obama cancel Chinese President Xi Jinping’s state visit to the White House. They’re calling the proposal, echoed on Wednesday by rival GOP contender Carly Fiorina, both “childish” and “harmful” to U.S. credibility."

So, Walker isn’t the most childish or harmful in the entire Republican primary race; but he wins the blue ribbon for most childish and harmful this week, and as always on the subject of foreign policy, he terrifieseven conservatives.

The experts seem to agree with Walker’s own state, where the Governor’s poll numbers have plummeted. So dies another Koch-funded White House dream. Meanwhile, Scott Walker is giving foreign policy yet another go with a speech today.

I can hardly wait.

It seems that your right to own a gun is more important than my right to life or to raise a family.

And that's insane.

Sixteen years after Columbine rattled America to its core, people still get shot while they're at school. People get shot while they're at work. People get shot eating. People get shot drinking. People get shot watching movies, shopping, driving, swimming, skipping, and playing baseball. It's 2015 and in America people get shot doing basically any goddamn thing you can think of.

I like where the numbers are trending.

GOP’s Favorability Rating Takes a Negative Turn

Although 24% of polled Americans have a negative view of both republicans and Democrats, there is a more telling and clear nuance behind that percentage. In fact, supporting the nuance, is the fact that percentage has little changed over the past two polling years, but within the percentage is where there’s a difference.

The rise in frustration with the parties, especially this year, is not the result of an across-the-board increase in negative views. Instead, it is largely concentrated among Republicans and Republican-leaning independents, who have become increasingly critical of the Republican Party. The share of Republicans who view the GOP unfavorably has more than doubled since January, from 12% to 27%.

More important to politicians are the fence-sitters, the elusive Independents and political leaners, and here’s where the republicans have the opportunity to understand they are doing “something” wrong:

~ Currently, 36% of independents express unfavorable opinions of both parties, as do 22% of Republicans and just 9% of Democrats. The biggest shift in opinion has come among Republicans, whose unfavorable impression of both parties is more than double the percentage in January (9%). Democrats’ unfavorable view of the two parties is little changed from the start of the year (8%).

~ Among independents, there has been a particularly stark rise in the unfavorable views of both parties among Republican-leaning independents, while there is little change in these views among Democratic leaners. Nearly half (47%) of Republican leaners have an unfavorable impression of both the Republican and Democratic parties, up from 32% in January and the highest percentage measured since 1992. Among Democratic-leaning independents, as among Democrats, there has been almost no change since January (22% today, 21% then).

~ The change in opinions of the Republican Party among Republican leaners may be more striking. In January, 59% had a favorable impression of the party, while just 37% had an unfavorable view. Today, their opinions are divided:  44% have a favorable opinion of the Republican Party, while 50% express an unfavorable opinion.

About  Political Party Leaners:
According to Pew Research, political leaners may share ideologies with a political party on many key issues. However, and this nuance is important, those who lean toward a party tend to have a less positive view of that party than do actual partisans.  Past and now present polling clearly reveals Republican-leaners have consistently expressed more negative views of the GOP than Democratic-leaners have of the Democratic party.

For instance, as of this latest polling, about two-thirds, or 66% of Democratic-leaners view the Democratic party favorably (27% do not) versus only 44% of Republican-leaners view the republican party favorably (50% do not). That’s a huge and surprising trend! Not!

http://www.pewresearch.org/fact-tank/2015/08/21/24-of-americans-now-view-both-gop-and-democratic-party-unfavorably/

General Polling On the Issues (July 2015):

As has been the case over the past four years, the Republican Party is viewed as more extreme in its positions than the Democratic Party. Currently, 52% say the GOP is more extreme, compared with 35% who say this better describes the Democratic Party.

The Democratic Party continues to hold wide advantages over the Republicans on empathy and honesty. By 53% to 31%, the Democratic Party is viewed as “more concerned with the needs of people like me.” And the Democrats hold a 16-point lead on governing in an honest and ethical way (45% to 29%).

The Democratic Party holds double-digit advantages on the following issues:
1.  Better able to handle the environment – by a margin of 53% to 27%

2. Abortion and contraception policies – by a margin of 50% to 31%

3. Education – by a margin of 46% to 34% 

4. Health care – by a margin of 46% to 36%

On the hand, the republican party has wide leads for better reflecting people’s views on gun control (48% to 36%) and dealing with the terrorist threat at home (44% to 34%). Each of these polling issues have changed greatly since the January 2015 polling, whereas the gap between the parties has gotten much narrower.

Congressional Evaluations Remain Highly Negative
Views of Congress continue to hover near record lows. Just 25% of Americans view Congress favorably, while 69% say they have an unfavorable opinion.

Although the GOP now controls both the House and Senate, Republicans and Democrats hold similar views of Congress: 29% of Democrats and 28% of Republicans rate it favorably. By comparison, Democratic ratings of Congress were consistently higher than Republicans’ ratings when Democrats controlled both chambers from 2007 to 2010.

Independents’ opinions of Congress are more negative than those in either party. Just 22% say they have a favorable view of Congress, relatively unchanged in recent months.
