A Handy Guide to Republican Posting

As a service, we here at Blogger would like to write down some simple and often used guidelines for you Republican posters.

Rule # 1

Rule # 2
There is no such thing as using too many exclamation points!!!!!!!!! 6 or 7 of those little suckers are a good replacement for facts.

Rule # 3
When in doubt blame Clinton

Rule # 4
Remember good American...only terrorist hating commies don't like the president.

Rule # 5
When faced with a reply from an informed commie loving liberal you can either refer to rule # 3 or run like hell and avoid any real debate.

Rule # 6
Did we mention ALWAYS BLAME CLINTON? A potent message can be made by combining rules #2 and # 3. Here is an example. When replying to a post questioning how you can support a deserter and convicted criminal who is flushing the country down the toilet you can answer: YEAH WELL CLINTON LIED ABOUT MONICA!!!!!!!!

Rule # 7
When asked to give facts you can either refer to rule #2 or quote some lie you heard on Rush today.

Rule #8
Use words and insult people.

Rule #9
Say that Critics of Bush hate our troops.

Rule #10
Use the words "REAL" "AMERICANS" and "PATRIOTS" a few times. This makes it seem that anyone who disagrees with them is a communist bent on over throwing the government.

Rule #11
Add the words "values" "Christian" and "the bible says" to any post you happen to be writing, regardless of the subject.

Rule #12
When you get really frustrated hurl fecal references. If that doesn't work start perseverating on penises and semen. If that doesn't work start making anus references.
Ignorance is Bush's Greatest Weapon

Those who support President Bush tend to be people who really aren't that plugged in to current events. For a year-and-a-half Bush bashers were told to keep quiet when it came to dissenting to Bush, especially in his war on Iraq. After last May and the "Mission Accomplished" incident, things in Iraq slowly started to unravel--no WMDs, the guerilla war, Iraqi protests, looting, oil that never really started pumping to pay for the war, high gas prices. After a few months Bush bashers saw their views validated and started speaking up. They ran into Bush supporters who were still basking in the glow of a clock that stopped on May 1st, 2003--still claiming Iraq caused 9/11, saying dissent against Bush was treason, claiming WMDs were found, and insisting the war was won, end of story.

Slowly some people are coming around as the media finally grows a pair and starts saying what a mess Iraq has become. But there are many who still support Bush due to his patriotic platitudes, religious references, and bumper sticker solutions to complex problems. Ask that Bush supporter about issue X or issue Y however, and they won't be aware of it. Press them, they get angry and don't want to talk about it. Bush will say he loves and believes in America, but he really believes in pontificating meaningless prescripted statements his most loyal constituency--the uninformed.

What the Rich folks don't want you to know

The top 6 percent of American citizens own 97% of the entire wealth of the country. These households have an average wealth of $10.2 million and pay only 3.5 percent of their wealth in taxes. By way of comparison, the bottom 40 percent of taxpayers have an average wealth of $1,100 and pay 163 percent of their wealth in taxes.

If all taxpayers paid the same 10.5 percent of their wealth in taxes as median income families’ pay, the taxes of the lowest 40 percent would be cut by 94 percent while the taxes of the wealthiest would triple.


From 1984 to 2002, the government collected $1.7 trillion more in Social Security taxes than it paid out. The extra money was supposed to go into a fund to help pay for baby boomers' retirements but instead was used to fund tax cuts for the wealthy.

Our country is being controlled by a miniscule few people who are exercising monopolistic fascist rule over the citizenry. For freedom's sake we must do all we can to abolish the Republican Party facade and the lie that it is perpetrating upon America.


An analysis by the Annenberg Public Policy Center's debunking Bush's claims that Kerry's plans to raise taxes on the richest Americans would increase the tax burden on 900,000 small businesses.

The analysis found that the Bush campaign is counting every rich person who has even $1 of outside business income as a small business owner, even if they have no employees.
