    Rachel Maddow nailed it last night - 15 things that will not happen!



    The proverbial “Morning in America” dawned brightly for President Barack Obama’s supporters when they woke upon November 7th — after a long and tumultuous campaign — to a world their chosen candidate will preside over until 2016. Yet, none of us could have possibly looked more triumphantly beautiful and radiant than our beloved progressive media angel Rachel Maddow — who opened her post-election day show by giddily proclaiming, “That HAPPENED … it REALLY happened!” She even adorned her customarily austere eyelids with a festive dash of purple eyeshadow for this august occasion.


    Maddow then got serious and launched into a litany of horrible things that would have happened if Mitt Romney had won and Barack Obama had lost. I had long known this already, but still got caught up with the outrage and subsequent shudders of relief. For anyone who does NOT fully understand the full extent of horrors our country has — thankfully — rejected, I have transcribed, compiled, and organized Maddow’s quotations into an easy-to-read list format we can all easily appreciate and share:





    (1) “We are not going to have a Supreme Court that will overturn Roe vs. Wade. There will be no more Antonin Scalias and Samuel Alitos added to this court.”


    (2) “We’re not going to repeal health reform. Nobody’s going to kill Medicare and make old people in this generation — or any other generation — fight it out on the open market to try to get themselves health insurance. We’re not going to do that.”


    (3) “We’re not going to give the 20% tax cut to millionaires and billionaires, and expect programs like food stamps and kids’ health insurance to cover that tax cut.”


    (4) “We’re not going to make you clear it with your boss if you want to get birth control with the insurance plan that you’re on.”


    (5) “We are not going to redefine rape.”


    (6) “We are not going to amend the constitution to stop gay people from getting married.”


    (7) We’re not going to double down on Guantanamo.


    (8) “We’re not eliminating the Department of Energy, the Department of Education, or Housing at the Federal level.”


    (9) “We are not going to spend two trillion dollars on the military, that the military does not want.”


    (10) “We are not scaling back on student loans because the country’s NEW plan is that you should borrow money from your parents.”


    (11) “We are not vetoing the Dream Act, we are not ‘self-deporting.’”


    (12) “We are not letting Detroit go bankrupt.”


    (13) “We are not starting a trade war with China on Inauguration Day in January.”


    (14) “We are not going to have — as a president — a man who once led a mob of friends to run down a scared gay kid to hold him down and forcibly cut his hair off with a pair of scissors while that kid cried and screamed for help. (And there was NO apology, not EVER.)”


    (15) “We are not going to have a Secretary of State John Bolton. We are not going to bring Dick Cheney Back. We are not going to have a foreign policy shop stocked with architects of the Iraqi war, we are not going to do it … We had the choice to do that if we wanted to do that, as a country, and we said no, last night, loudly.”

    Enjoy your crowing, Rachel.

    How much money will you lose when 10 million people cancel their cable TV subscriptions?

    go right ahead and cancel all thise accounts.


    You must really be rich to pay for all those accounts.

    Not a good way to spend your money anyway.


    You can only watch one TV at a time

    You don't have to be rich to cancel a cable TV account. You get a little richer by cancelling the cable TV account.

    I don't like her either but many fools listen to her and believe everything she says.

    So you must also hate Ann Coulter as well I take it?
    Sorry--but I do not accept the idea that being intolerant of intolerance is THE SAME THING as being intolerant of anything else.
