Stupidity in Politics Today

There's a lot of stupidity in politics on both sides of the fence, but the conservatives always seem to corner the market on it. Here are a couple of examples from the headlines today.  I'm just passing them along.

1) For Donald Trump and all the other right-wing wackos who have to make up stuff to attack and belittle others. The President's birth certificate is now out in public. End of story.
http://whitehouse.blogs.cnn.com/2011/04/26/cnn-birther-investigation-obama-born-in-the-usa-period/ 
 FROM CNN: A new CNN investigation reveals what most analysts have been saying since the "birther" controversy erupted during the 2008 presidential campaign: Obama was born in Hawaii on August 4, 1961. Period.
  While the president has made light of the controversy, the question remains political red meat for some of his critics. A recent CNN/Opinion Research Corp. poll showed that nearly 75% of Americans believe Obama was definitely or probably born in the United States. ***CAN YOU BELIEVE THIS STUPIDITY???? More than four in 10 Republicans, however, believe he probably or definitely was not born in America.** - Someone is making up lies and then Brainwashing people into believing them. Are people really THAT stupid?  Sadly, YES.
2)  First the unending made up "birth certificate" stupidity. Now another idiot from Calif. sending stupid and insulting emails about the President. 
www.ktla.com:   Tea Party activist Marilyn Davenport claims the photo was a joke.
HUNTINGTON BEACH, Calif. (KTLA) -- An Orange County Republican official who sent out an email containing a doctored photo depicting President Barack Obama as a chimpanzee has issued another apology, this time during a news conference. FULL STORY: http://www.ktla.com/news/landing/ktla-obama-offensive-email,0,3803760.story
3)  Minnesota Republicans are trying to pass an amendment to the state Constitution that would ban gay marriages. How is "conservative" and "Christian" likened to this kind of Hatred and intolerance of others? 
    I have an idea for the Republican party- How about solving the economic issues instead of being hateful?  How about doing something to HELP people instead of hurt certain people?  
   With all of these things, I certainly don't see Republicans as "Christian.

Gift/Memorial Suggestions

Several of our friends have lost loved ones (human and pets) and we found that one of the best ways to honor their memory is to give to an animal charity.
What better way to recognize a life of love, than by giving another life a chance for love?
We donate to many animal rescues, but because we volunteer with
DC Weimaraner Rescue and Coast-to-Coast Dachshund Rescue, those are our 2 favorites.
Consider giving the chance of life to a dog or cat.
