Ptaray Presents: Defending "Fringe" Democracy

Facts only confuse the self-righteous, they rely on perception.


March 19
I am Ray Bilodeau also known by many as "PtaRay" I have lived in Fremont for 18 years. I have a wife, 3 daughters, 1 son, several grand children, and a cat, friends of all political stripes, some are very close friends, and a few out there who think I need a hair cut!! Being of Mexican-American decent. I understand racial tensions, and cultural heritage and its place in life as a family. We had to down play ours, and sacrificed the ability to speak Spanish at my primary schools request, and my mothers belief that being Mexican -American in California was not helpful to my fitting in. (She will debate this today) California was not quite as progressive when I was younger. I can be outspoken, and have been called the "pit bull" for the kids. (long before Sarah Palin made that term a joke... YEARS BEFORE) I was heavily involved in the Fremont education system in some capacity or another for years. I am invested in making the children and parents of America see that life has many paths, and all can lead to success if you choose to seek it. If you want more details read on: My experience with life is extensive for my 50 years of age. I bring practical and life taught experience. In my life growing up I have Personally experienced much. Again being of Mexican-American decent I heard the racial slurs and the need to keep my ethnicity buried for self preservation. OK, take a deep breath, ready?... ...I have experienced the gang thing, the drug thing, the alcoholic parent thing and the highly religious parent thing. The honors kid thing, the failing kid thing, the early baby thing, the marriage thing, the divorce thing, the step dad thing, the step child thing, and a painful loss of child. But wait!, there's more! I have been a security guard, a pizza parlor manager, a cement silo worker, a potato sacker, a landscaper, an office manger of a print shop. I was daycare for several children (besides my own), I have helped sell skin care products, I have taken a certified parenting workshop (several months long). I graduated from Silicon Valley college, as a certified desktop publisher. I have done remodeling, interior decorating and I have done care for the elderly and even my mother in-law loves me!!! (I am her full time caretaker and defender of the elderly) Having lived through the tough times of my youth, and the hard core life the streets can throw at you, realizing that while mistakes can be made while you are young, you can always be salvaged, and no person is beyond success if you are willing to be persistent, I want to give back to the kids what I learned the hard way, so that they can have an easier life than I did. Oh yeah, I also pretend I play the guitar, and keyboard. Hope this gives you plenty of info and helps some. "An open mind has room to grow... A closed one is merely storage" E.R.Bilodeau

GOP supports voter socialism?

Rate: 1 Flag

Regarding this electorial college point redistribution scheme.

(happening in PA) 

So the current ideas being tossed around in the Philly state are interesting, but in a weird way sort of unAmerican, if you look at the basic ideology of the Tea Party and GOP supporters.

The idea that you can take an entire state and then divide those votes and district electorial college points out in a "more fair manner" which happens to favor their party...hmmm.. sounds alot like the hateful and often constant cries of socialism to me.

Voter  socialism, what a concept. conceived by the self proclaimed defenders of the American dream. Tea Party and GOP socialism is not the same as regular socialism, theirs is hybrid, it involves them.

Fix the election system to favor a single party in the name of equality?

so now the Tea Party and the GOP support limited socialism in election rules... nice, what's next , getting rid of the US mail so they can get rid of absentee ballots and  mail in registration for future elections too?

OH WAIT.. that's already here!!

So the current picture looks like this, the Tea Party has done what no nation OR BIN LADEN could, lowered our credit rating, slowed our economic growth, given China the edge by selling out are manufacturing here in the states , made the disrespect and hatred of our president and his office the center peice of their policies.

 And they now lean to socialism to stack the vote in their favor...

who needs enemies like China or any other foreign nation, we have the Tea Party and the GOP to remind us they are already here.

 There might be a real reason Michelle Bachman wants to know about Un-American  ideas in our government, she knows what her and other like her in the Tea Party really want for this nation, and Americanism, does not seem to fit that image. Maybe it was a cry for help?

Global and regional war and corporate influences, mixed with god and self-righteouness, wow!!... and now voting socialism.. way to go patriots.. tread the crap out of us and don't lose any sleep.

The Republicans will stop at nothing to regain power and the Presidency. This is just another example. They are restricting voting on college campuses, instituting stringent photo ID's for voting, and attacking ACORN and others for signing up new voters. They and their Tea Party wing are despicable. They want to take back THEIR country. What a ridiculous statement. Then they want to destroy our social safety net and move the rest of the wealth in this country to the rich. Regulation of industry will end under their reign. We all need to get out and vote next year to stop these insidious people. Excellent article Ptaray.
