I Keep Saying…

This is a political post.

If interested please scroll down….















For several years now I have been repeating: The Republican party has one agenda: to harm the American people. Their only partial exception: The very rich, which the GOP helps to make even richer.

All these headlines are just from the the past week. Yep, just one week.

One week.

One week.

All these headlines are Republican led. Democrats support none of the above.

Notably absent from all these headlines is any policy to help you and me. Like improving our infrastructure, reducing inflation, raising wages, creating jobs, improving healthcare, reducing the deficit, and on and on and on. All these issues though are being addressed by, yep, Democrats.

If you are still voting Republican, my question is why? Why are you helping to harm all of us?

    A mean spirit is not only unattractive it is a bad and evil spirit. Opinions are like “Butts”, everyone has one – But should they show it ??? They should not attempt to impose their opinions upon others. Your post(s) of late seem to lean more towards those of a political hatchet blog in lieu of updates on “Cross House” wherein you cynically and disgustingly attempt to throw a blanket of guilt-by-association over countless people you do not even know yet deem to be your political foes. Life is short. Too short to constantly be Seeking out , Promoting controversy, dissension and hatred. “For God’s Sake”, (assuming that you believe in God),Stop with the “Hating”, Pull yourself up by your boot straps, Get a grip on life, Stop whining, Quit feeling sorry for yourself, Stop with the “Political” posts, and Marry “Kenny”. Above all – Do make 100% certain that all attendees are verified Democrats. Then hopefully Kenny can find it in his kind gentle heart to not only tolerate you but also to forgive you for your being so opinionated, ungrateful, and political about everything in life

      The TRASH party (Transphobic, Racist, Ableist, Sexist, Homophobic) is a fascist party and we need to stop them dead in their tracks. Ross is 100% correct in drawing attention to what they are doing. Fox Noooz is not telling their viewers what is really happening, since it is just a propaganda tool for the TRASH party. Go crawl back in to your hole, you weasel.

      • Ross on March 18, 2023 at 12:06 pm

        Dear Miriam,

        I invite your thoughts but, please, no name calling.

    • Ross on March 18, 2023 at 11:47 am

      Dear OHL,

      In my post I offer a long list of recent headlines.

      These headlines are not my opinions but are actual things Republicans are doing to harm America and the American people.

      Do you think it’s OK for the Republican party to actively cause harm?

      You also think I’m “imposing” my opinions on others. But…I’m not. At the top of my every political post is a warning. So, rather than me “imposing” my opinions, you chose to seek them out.

      Also of note, OHL, is that rather than refuting my opinions, that rather than refuting the many headlines above, you instead insulted me: “Get a grip on life, Stop whining, Quit feeling sorry for yourself…”

      I ask you, OHL, if you vote Republican, my question is why? Why are you helping to harm all of us?

    • glenn on March 18, 2023 at 2:28 pm

      It’s Ross’s blog. He can say what he wants. And hey, maybe you might learn something by reading it.

  2. Paul on March 18, 2023 at 11:43 am

    It is truly distressing to see what the GOP is doing to the country. They’re not even pretending anymore – that they care even one iota about average Americans. And this is what my (former) Republican friends support and vote for, which makes it even more distressing. Although to be fair most of my friends in this category currently have their heads up their asses, so they only hear their own farts these days.

    Pretty much what my Catholic friends do whenever sex abuse scandals make the news too.

    The biggest challenge I face these days is trying to have a Christian attitude about all of this, to try and love those that support an ideology that seeks to limit my own freedom, as well as oppress many, many others as well.

    Plus, try in seek solace in the belief that God is the judge of these people, not me. It’s damn hard, let me tell you.

  3. Miriam Righter on March 18, 2023 at 11:50 am

    Can everyone stop calling it the GOP (Grand Old Party). It lost the right to that moniker years ago. It is now the TRASH party -Transphobic, Racist, Ableist, Sexist, Homophobic party that is also a fascist party. They are totally using the Nazi playbook in their shenanigans. If people don’t start paying attention, and stop listening to Fox Nooz propaganda, our country will no longer be a democracy. I am so angry about what they are doing, to women, to people who are gay, to people who are trans, to people of color, to poor people. Anyone who continues to vote Republican has lost any value to me now. The party is evil, and if you cannot see that, then YOU are evil too.

    • Ross on March 18, 2023 at 12:05 pm

      Dear Miriam,

      I agree that Republicans are using the Nazi playbook: Demonizing vulnerable people. It’s right out in the open. It’s starkly obvious.

      And this same party attacked our beacon of Democracy, the United States Capitol, to try and destroy democracy.

      Yet, I’m the problem!

    • E.J. on March 18, 2023 at 2:35 pm

      We could try “Grody Old Pigs”, lol

      • Miriam Righter on March 18, 2023 at 4:05 pm

        Love it!

  4. Jean on March 18, 2023 at 12:08 pm

    Because white people are afraid to be a minority, which they will. It’s math. Maybe they feel guilty for all the nasty , racist shit they have expressed.

    • Ross on March 18, 2023 at 12:20 pm


      There have been vast social changes since I was born in 1957:

      In 1957 hit TV shows such as I LOVE LUCY depicted women as stupid and men as smart.

      In 1957 women were routinely sexually abused at work. And there was zero recourse.

      In 1957 a woman running for president was unthinkable.

      In 1957 a Black president was beyond unthinkable.

      In 1957, nobody talked about the sexual abuse of children. It was all hushed up, particularly by the Church.

      In 1957 children who were left-handed were forced to write with their right hand.

      In 1957 rivers often caught fire as they were so polluted, and all major America cities were obscured by smog.

      In 1957, cars were death traps.

      In 1957 racial segregation was a way of life. Lynching was still common.

      In 1957 a Black man could not marry a white woman. Or vice versa.

      In 1957 homosexuality was considered a mental disorder. Gay men were jailed. Marriage equality was unthinkable.

      In 1957 nobody cared about the damage being done to the global environment. Eagles were in danger of becoming extinct due to DDT. Nobody recycled.

      In 1957 our architectural heritage was routinely smashed to the ground with nary a thought.

      In 1957 most of what was taught in school was a lie (Columbus was a good man, people native to the land were savages, and on and on.)

      As a Liberal, all the social advances these past 66 years meet with my 100% approval.

      Yet, to Conservatives, all this is…scary. They feel as if their world has been upended.

      And, IMO, this pretty much sums up what we are witnessing: Conservatives want to return America to 1957. Or 1864, the year before slavery was ended.

    They have no shame and just want audiences. Gop (I won’t dignify them by typing it correctly) are trying to turn back the clock and as you said, have no ideas to make things better for the people they were elected to serve. God must be so sad. It’s scary.

  6. Kate R on March 18, 2023 at 1:10 pm

    GOP and GQP don’t govern and can’t govern. The party needs to implode and restructure. Hopefully, something good will come out of this catastrophic , frightening, but ludicrous era. As a creative writer I read daily headlines while telling myself “you can’t make this stuff up!”

  7. Terri Mc on March 18, 2023 at 2:15 pm

    We’re living in a very dangerous time. I see nothing but playground bulling going on with the leaders who are supposed to be speaking for the majority. I don’t see that. I see them pushing their individual values on me. Many republicans are starting to see that what is happening is not lining up with their core values. I encourage everyone to vote. Get everyone out to vote and keep your people/ friends/ family/ co- workers up to date and informed. If you know then you know. Ty Ross for the eye opening post. ❤️

  8. E.J. on March 18, 2023 at 2:29 pm

    None of these surprise me, except tRump saying that he’ll be arrested on Tuesday. I wonder why they don’t arrest him today.

  9. glenn on March 18, 2023 at 2:31 pm

    Welp, you know what I say – not all c**ts are Republicans, but all Republicans are c**ts.

    • E.J. on March 18, 2023 at 2:39 pm

      Laughing hysterically…..

    • Ross on March 18, 2023 at 5:46 pm

      Dear Glenn. Let’s not do that.

  10. Harlan on March 18, 2023 at 2:58 pm

    You forgot about the one where Joe Biden took 3 million from communist china??

    • Ross on March 18, 2023 at 5:40 pm

      Dear Readers,

      Do y’all see what Harlan did?

      He offered no rebuttal to my post. He offered not a single Republican-created program to help you and me.

      Instead, he ignored the elephant in the living room by diverting our attention to Joe Biden. Look what terrible thing Biden did!

      This is called whataboutism: “The practice of responding to an accusation by making a counteraccusation.”

      It’s a practice beloved by Republicans.

      Harlan also lied. Joe Biden didn’t do what Harlan accused him of. Biden is an honorable, decent man who has devoted a lifetime trying to make the world a better place. But Harlan thinks it’s OK to slander Biden nonetheless.

    • Gary on March 23, 2023 at 1:25 pm

      Love to hear your thoughts on Kushner taking 2 BILLION from MBS, and his wife taking millions in cash, trademarks for all sorts of things and business licenses from China.

      • Ross on March 23, 2023 at 4:35 pm

        Now, now, Gary. There’s no reason to bring facts about Republicans into the conversation when Harlan would rather lie about Democrats!

  11. Cindy Belanger on March 18, 2023 at 6:33 pm

    These GOP people are insane!! We are not in the middle ages. Hopefully all of these antics will help to turn the tide against them and get some productive people in the House and Senate.

    • Ross on March 18, 2023 at 6:43 pm

      Thank you, Cindy. It’s 100% clear that Republicans don’t care about you and me. And I find no data showing that they are attracting new voters. Indeed, their evildoing is repelling most young voters and their main base, the Silent Generation (late 70s and older), is dying off quickly.

      And this, this, is why they are now openly trying to steal votes and crush democracy.

      What the Republican Party is doing is repellent to most people.

  12. Mary Ann Lammersen on March 18, 2023 at 9:07 pm

    As a logical and coherent discussion, OHL’s say is as polarizing as he is accusing the blog writer here of being. His comment is full of hate and disgusting rhetoric. Sorry, OHL, but Ross is right. It is Very Important to take care of people and not spread hateful and spiteful speech and ideas. The way is forward and all the relics of bad days past will fossilize and become dead and ignorant nothing. Everybody, evolve already! Let’s be better and smarter and more compassionate and caring of one another. Humanity’s survival depends on it!

    • Ross on March 18, 2023 at 9:55 pm

      Thank you, Mary Ann.

      Not, too, how OHL wants me to shut up, while expecting their voice to be heard.

      A classic example of: Free Speech for Me–But Not for Thee.
