I’m Glad The Federal Government Has Weapons To Protect Freedom From People Like Rand Paul—Representation Of Armed Black Man Defending Our Nation

I’m glad that the Federal Government is well-armed to protect me and other freedom-loving Americans from people like Republican U.S. Senate Candidate Rand Paul of Kentucky.

Above you see a representation of an armed Interior Department employee as he patrols in defense of the American people. You’ll note that he is black. While Rand Paul would be okay with private business places deciding not to hire black folks, the federal government hires black people and passes laws saying that business places can not discriminate on the basis of race.

Is this the type of issue Republicans in Kentucky want us to revisit? Is this what the Tea Party folks are all about? Are we going to move back 50 years?

Candidate Paul has said that it would be okay for business places to not serve black people.

Rachel Maddow: How about desegregating lunch counters?

Paul: Well what it gets into then is if you decide that restaurants are publicly owned and not privately owned, then do you say that you should have the right to bring your gun into a restaurant even though the owner of the restaurant says ‘well no, we don’t want to have guns in here’ the bar says ‘we don’t want to have guns in here because people might drink and start fighting and shoot each-other.’ Does the owner of the restaurant own his restaurant? Or does the government own his restaurant?”

Dr. Paul has now also said that President Obama’s criticisms of BP about the oil spill are “Un-American”

Here is part of what Dr. Paul said—

“What I don’t like from the president’s administration is this sort of ‘I’ll put my boot heel on the throat of BP.’ I think that sounds really un-American in his criticism of business.”

Coal miners and other working people in Kentucky are , of course, free to vote for Dr. Paul this November.

I just wish those folks good luck with mine safety and any measure of protection as working people with Rand Paul representing them in the U.S. Senate.

People like Dr. Paul, who would allow discrimination and defend polluting companies, are just exactly why millions upon millions of Americans feel that government has a role to play in our lives.

A Spoonful Of Dung Or Tumor—People Get Paid To Produce Ads Such As This

Above you see a magazine ad for Jello Mousse Temptations.

The ad says you should give in to the temptation of this mousse dessert.

You should give in even as obesity rates soar and we are in a recession caused in part by people spending beyond their resources.

That picture is nasty.

It looks like a spoonful of dung or tumor.

Somebody was paid plenty of money to come with that ad.

That person might be making more money than you are making.

Yet you do your job well and this person came up with that picture.

Nasty. Nasty. Nasty.
