Tired of Republican ‘propaganda’
I want to express my disgust for some of these Republican candidates, and their misrepresentation in commercials on TV.
One is Todd Staples. I know for a personal fact, if you are injured from a chemical exposure, he is not in support of “you” in getting help with anything! This man is a corporate insider, and is in the chemical corporation’s corner, not yours! So many of these candidates are in the pocket of oil companies, pharmaceutical and insurance companies! Our utility costs are higher than ever before! How long will we allow the high price insults and assaults on our Texas neighbors and citizens?
I am so tired of these candidates Republican propaganda on Fox TV, and other networks wanting our votes which will not work for the public good,or benefit on behalf of.
The people need to know, Republican’s cavalier conservative values, is anything but conservative or Christian. Using a Christian sentence in their campaigns, then taking corporate kickbacks and promoting inequality, is no longer acceptable. Ministers and preachers who promote Republican candidates should wake up, take a look at what propaganda they are being fed, then examine their calling to preach.
Politicians using racism and hate for a black president, and impeachment, claim suing President Obama and hate for the Affordable Healthcare Act, is actually their anger for fear of loss of a lifestyle of monetary greed. The United States was the only industrialized country in the world, that did not have a national healthcare program.
Greg Abbott is certainly among those using many of these same campaign talking points, which hurts Texans, in their kitchen table budgets. He supports no regulation on carbon emissions and corporate polluters which wrecks our environment and eventually our health. One only has to remember the disaster in the “West, Texas” community as an example of years of neglected regulation in Texas.
These Republican officials have had a stranglehold on regulations for protecting us. You need to know, if you are a black individual, or Hispanic or a woman, or a gay or a low income, or elderly, or a nursing home resident, you are of little concern to these Republicans wanting your vote. They advertise moral character values, but it is not happening in their political deeds. They talk against abortion, but forget the child after its birth.
Much gain for themselves, is similar to the railroad barons in the late 1800s and early 1900s. The corporate robber barons then fleeced the public good, like today’s political hijackers.
Remember Bush in 2000, and the Bush vs. Gore lawsuit? George W. Bush was the first appointed sitting president by the Supreme Court, not elected! This is where Texas and The United States started going off the cliff from what America once was.
Let’s get rid of all these hijackers, which claim we have more jobs than any other state. Be aware that most jobs in Texas are fast food and corporate companies who resist giving a minimum wage, or a living wage, to people like us.
Enough is enough.

The U.S. Department of Agriculture is still expanding the list of retailers carrying meat unfit for human consumption to Alabama, Florida, Mississippi, New Mexico, Oregon, Washington and 970 locations in California alone. About 8.7 million pounds were shipped all through 2013 by Rancho Feeding Corporation of Petaluma, Calif.
The recall comes in the wake of USDA’s new “inspection” program that allows the meat industry to increase speed of processing lines and replace federal inspectors with plant employees.
According to USDA inspector general, this has resulted in partial failure to remove fecal matter, undigested food and other contaminants that may contain deadly E. coli and listeria bacteria.
Traditionally, USDA has catered more to the interests and profitability of the meat industry than health and safety of American consumers. Consumer interests come into play only when large numbers of us get sick. Having USDA protect consumers is like asking the fox to guard the henhouse.
The Obama Administration should reallocate responsibility for all food safety to the Food and Drug administration. In the meantime, each of us can assume responsibility for our own safety by switching to the rich variety of soy-based meat products offered by our favorite supermarket.
