• Helping Those Who Help Themselves When You Need Help.

    You had legislation reaffirming that “In God We Trust” is our motto? That’s not putting people back to work. I trust in God, but God wants to see us help ourselves by putting people back to work.

    Sorry, Mr. President. The GOP-led legislature has better things to do than make jobs for unemployed Americans. In fact, they'd rather not see a single job created until your black ass is thrown out of the Oval Office come January 20, 2013. Besides, brushing up their "pious asshole" credentials by reaffirming "In God We Trust" as the official U.S. motto. "Separation of Church and State" means nothing to a bunch of folks angling for a "Christian nation" or such other nonsense.

    Seriously, "E pluribus unum" sounds much better and also avoids that whole "Separation of Church and State" business. Besides, the president thought it was cool. Maybe that's what got all the pious assholes in the House all upset:

    As evidence of this "disturbing trend," Forbes pointed to the fact that in a 2010 speech in Indonesia, President Obama called the phrase "E pluribus unum" the nation's motto. He also pointed to the dispute over the use of the phrase "in God we trust" in the relatively new visitors center at the Capitol Building.

    Meanwhile, the Obama White House has its hands full with pushing the jobs bill through. Congress is allowing choice bits and pieces to go through, but any hope of the whole hog coming through died in the Senate.

    The GOP seems more interested in thumping bibles, guaranteeing corporate wealth, preserving the sanctity of life until it manages to leave the womb and regulating how females handle their own reproductive organs. Oh, and sandbagging the economy so your black ass can look bad and lose on November 4, 2012. The next time the GOP and conservatives say they want to "help" America, take a look at the above and ask yourself, "is this the kind of 'help' I should expect from these people?"
