Colin Powell still a Republican for now disagrees with Republican April fools joke!

Despite the Republican April fools joke I mean budget or plan to finish their destruction of our America Colin Powell is still a Republican for now. I must say I have always respected this man and you can tell me if that judgment is misplaced.!
Colin Powell: Republican, American first

I refuse to believe that the Republicans even put that mess they called a Budget proposal out let alone on Aril Fools Day! It really is a joke Those idiots blow me away. The idiocy and the unflinching willing started by Bush to look stupid and say stupid things just gets worse and worse. They just want a return to the program started by Bush to destroy our America and return to their new version. This plan is plain idiocy and they have to know it would destroy our America. They can't be this stupid. They actually want to press the reset button on the economy and worse. They want to destroy it!

I can not believe they had the audacity to roll their so called plan out. That is no plan it is a joke! They are actually calling for multi trillion dollar tax cuts for the wealthiest Americans oh yeah that'll work! They have in their "Budget $4 million in tax cuts for the wealthy. They want a 5 year freeze in discretionary spending yeah that'll work too! I refuse to believe after everything that has happened with the stock market, the economy, job losses which just hit a new at an additional 669,000 jobs last last month they had the b*lls to say they want to privatize Medicare! Why do they not just come right out and say we want to continue to help the wealthy and you average Americans are on your own? I just do not get it how do they get away with this idiocy?
White House says GOP budget a joke and it is

They want to drop the entire stimulus package and convert Medicaid to State Block Grants Yeah that'll work too! What the hell is wrong with them?

Besides the time Colin Powell was blindly backing false assertions that Saddam had WMD I have always respected him. He admits when he is wrong and like me seeks the unbiased truth regardless of party interest. To me he backed that up by not joining the Bush mis-Administration for the 2nd 4 years.

I was up again in the middle of the night and was happy to hear Colin Powell on the Rachel Maddow Show speaking the unbiased truth about the joke of a budget put out by his fellow Republicans! In response to the asinine suggest spending freeze besides pointing out that it has never worked and will not work. He proudly pointed out that under Bush it was doubled. He denounced the GOP's Budget suggestions as unrealistic and that he hoped they would wake up and see the light. Colin Powell: Republican, American first

* Final word: Colin Powell disagrees with the spending freeze as like us he knows it is a ridiculous idea that has never worked and certainly will not at a time when like it or not we are in trouble because we can not spend now. Freezing spending would be suicidal at this time and Republicans have too know it! Tampering with Medicaid, Medicare social security, Veteran spending, smaller Government, any and all of it would destroy the country Like us Colin Powell has never heard of such a thing. You want to wonder what they are up to? What is wrong with them? However unlike Colin Powell who loves our America you know Republicans love their version which does not accommodate us!

A 5 year spending freeze, additional major tax cuts for the wealthy, cuts in new energy sources, drill baby drill, cuts in health care and education, will send us back to the stone age! What are those people on? This was tried during the Great Depression but it failed. That is why FDR's new Deal program of spend and rebuild was instituted. That as you know is what Obama wants! From what I can see the Republican party can be proud of one of their own! I can not stop wondering what the hell is wrong with the rest of them? Why can they not do the right thing for America and not the Republican party? This idiocy must stop!

I'm on the fence with Colin Powell.

I am of the opinion that he betrayed his country when he lied about WMDs in Iraq. For someone in his position, I feel this is an unforgivable offense.

The there's the not so small matter, that he owns a business that is a 3rd world arms dealer. I see this as a conflict of interest for him in his duties as a soldier.

Hi Wease
I felt betrayed by that but I assumed he was lied to along with the rest of the country.

I felt vindicated when he refused a second term and has disagreed with everything Bush did.

You have me on owning a business that is a 3rd world arms dealer. I assume he knows that? If so I am disappointed to say the least!

I tend to agree with Wease. Powell is a very intelligent man. He was lying through his teeth at the UN. He knew better. At the time, I believe he was a team player and compromised his principles for the advancement of the team.

Although many believe that to be an admirable quality, I, for one, do not.

I may forgive him the offense, but he has permanently lost my trust, and with it, my respect. He is just as responsible as Bush for all the death and destruction the Iraq war has caused. Had he spoken up, in all probability the war would not have happened. Yet, even if it had, his integrity would have remained in tact. He sold his soul to the devil. It cannot be redeemed.

Hi Brother
I know I am naive but I thought he was hornswaggled. I am not one that compromise my principles period.
What really bothers me is he never spoke out against wrongs he knew occurred. He would have been discounted as usual I am sure but you should speak the truth period. He is agreeing with Obama now and against Bush policies. I just don't friggen know any more.

That was the MO of the Bush cabal. You're either with us or you're a terrorist. I can't count the times they threw their fellow republicans under a bus even after they got in lock step with Herr Bush.

an average patriot said...

You're right! It seems they applied that handle so they could impose their will on Islam and their lands instead of those right here and in their party who really deserved it!

Brother Tim said...

Stupid Muslims! Too dumb to accept our help! How can they be so blissfully ignorant not to want OUR freedoms and liberties?

Freedom to become nations of brain-dead alcholics.

Liberty to have unfettered access to the joys of pornography.

Freedom to accept and promote homosexuality as an 'alternative lifestyle'.

Liberty of promiscuity and the

Freedom to abort resulting pregnancies because they 'don't fit your lifestyle'.

Liberty to rob your fellow-man blind, and then laugh at his plight.

Freedom from justice.

Liberty to die without health care.

What, in God's name, is wrong with those people?????

an average patriot said...

That is sad but funny! I see nothing wrong with their system but it is pretty hard to see anything right with our lately!

Average Patriot--Hi there. Yeah, I used to love Colin Powell, until the "selling" to U.N. on WMD's, etc. I've forgiven him, and am grateful he spoke up and put his support for then-candidate Obama in the Presidential race.
In response to Brother Tim, who I deeply respect, I agree with you on all except the comment you made about LGBT folks. We(I identify as Bi, though I am in a committed, loving, monogamous marriage--to a wonderful man)are all worthy of civil rights.
I do not liked being lumped in with alcoholism(that is a disease), robbing, promiscuity, etc.
I believe(and science has proven)that orientation is innate. Science has discovered that there is for women, a certain amount of "sexual fluidity"--which means that although women cannot CHANGE their orientation, many women could fall-in-love with either gender.(Personally, I've always said "I fall-in-love with the PERSON, not the GENDER")Which means science is "catching up" with reality. ;)
Peace, ya'll.
