I have said here many times that Republicans and other right wing nutbags are not really interested in the Constitution. They’re anarchists, who would be very much at home underneath the Articles Of Confederation instead, where the states ran amok. You see, these pigfuckers would like nothing better than to ruin the mechanism that is used to run the federal government.
A New Hampshire man seeking to get back to the “original Constitution” was arrested by the FBI on Wednesday after he purchased grenades from an undercover agent, telling him he had another $200,000 on hand to buy C-4 explosives and “rocket-type stuff.”
According to the investigation affidavit, Musso allegedly claimed he could sell large quantities of grenades and that he belongs to a group of people bringing back “the original Constitution,” while noting that he feared the government might be aware of their efforts.
“That is why I need some of this stuff,” he claimed.
I need to know what he means by bringing back the “original” Constitution. I love this story and would like to see an expose on him, while he cools his heels in prison.
There is still so much hate that needs to be contained and eliminated. Black bodies being dropped by cops everywhere, Muslim houses of worship defaced, Latinos being denied the chance to live a productive life, it’s like the 60s never ended. Oh fuck it, you can go back as far as you like to see the kind of shit we’re seeing now. Hate’s roots are often untraceable, unless you dig.
Have I forgotten anything? Oh, I forgot about homosexuals being denied basic human rights:
Oklahoma legislators are trying to pass an expressively cruel bill that would bar depressed LGBT youngsters from seeking gay-affirming counseling at school, Slate reports.
The state House bill, proposed by Republican Sally Kern, is part of a slew of anti-gay legislation she wants to pass, which would sanction discredited gay “conversion” therapy and prevent HIV-positive people from getting married.
The bill states that no public school “counselor, therapist, social worker, administrator, teacher or other individual” will be allowed to refer anyone under 18 to any person or organization if the referral “pertain[s] to human sexuality.”
Why? Fucking why? What the fuck?
Christians. God damn motherfucking Christians, looking to tell everyone what to do for whatever fucking biblical reason they have. These are kids we are talking about are in the most confusing time of their life and you fucking Christians can’t show a little empathy and basic human decency because you read a book that also sanctions killing animals in a temple and splashing their blood on an altar, then burning the animal so you can atone for whatever shit you did against your stupid god…and the god is pleased by the smell. Morbid fucking bullshit, that’s all your book amounts to.
Go full tilt, you assholes, but do it away from the public. Get out of our legislative bodies and hate your way to heaven.
By now, you’ve seen more than one example of “family values” people that are not. One sleazebucket in Tennessee got caught sexting to young women, and hopefully it is a career ender:
Tennessee Republican leaders were told of a potential sexual harassment complaint about House Majority Whip Jeremy Durham’s behavior about a week before an unprecedented House GOP caucus meeting to decide the fate of his leadership role, but the specific concerns were never disclosed to his fellow legislators, Republican lawmakers confirmed.
One woman in her mid-20s, who worked in various capacities at the statehouse, said during the 2013 legislative session, Durham repeatedly sent text messages and Facebook messages, sometimes late into the night.
One text message, after 10 p.m., says he misses her.
In another text, at about 1:30 a.m., Durham asks her for pictures.
A second woman, in her early 20s whose work required her to be at the statehouse, also said she received dozens of text messages from Durham during the 2013 session and after. A text from Durham, sent at about 1 a.m., asks the woman for pictures.
“He would come up with these ideas and I would just be like, ‘Are you crazy?’ ”
It’s not the sexting that bothers me so much as he, like many a Christian family values asswipe, takes hypocrisy to a new level bit by bit. I can handle sleazy. What I can’t stand is the Janus-faced fuckballs who jerk off with one hand and praise the lord to the rafters with the other.
Just yesterday, I was up Obama’s ass for deployment of troops to Iraq. But it’s his last year, and he is going to run out of ink in his executive order pen to make good. Today, with one stroke, he eliminated juvenile solitary and confinement for low level infractions. This will affect up to 10,00 people in federal prisons across the country. You can read the whole thing here.
Ol’ Zandar there is a good resource. Check him out some time.
Broken promises. Betrayal. Lying.
This is the language of politics. This is what they do best.
Today, Barack Obama announced, through his Secretary of Defense, that it’s time to go back to Iraq. Oh, we’ve been nibbling around the edges of deployment for a good bit now, but this campaign promise is officially kaput. There is no apparent way to stop Daesh without manpower.
I don’t quite know what to say. I’ve been caught here saying that we should send the entire weight of the American military to crush these motherfuckers. Alternatively, I have said the damage is irreparable; it was just a matter of time before Iraq went to shit again.
Upon reflection, these thoughts are not irreconcilable. I can wish for their destruction while expressing remorse that Iraq is fucked. One thing is clear; nothing will ever be the same again for the people of Iraq. And that is the worst part of all of it, unless I consider the tens of thousands of American soldiers who cannot awake from the horror that war truly is. Some of them will never wake again.
Fuck it. I don’t care that Obama broke a promise. What a surprise that a politician will say one thing and do another. He painted himself into a corner and stepped in the wet stuff anyway. I still believe that at heart Obama is trying to do the right thing and exigent realities have caused him to change course. In reality, I would expect no less. I want my politicians to grow and evolve. But I don’t want to get cold-cocked with a broken promise either. Perhaps, all I am looking for is a good reason. If he could just come out and say it and give it to us straight, I’d be mollified.
In the absence of any good decision, I will say this- give ’em hell, mighty 101st. Hooah!
Carly “No Chance At Even Getting Close To the White House Unless On A Guided Tour”Fiorina is still out there meeting and greeting.
There’s a thing called the Young Republicans, and they’re all headed for college or least have finished school at 18.
But how young do you really want to fill kids’ heads with the platform of a particular party? My kids talk to me about them, and they are 12 and 13. I think that’s a fine age for a kid to have an opinion on current events, unsophisticated as it may be.
Carly Fiorina has no such qualms. That’s why she hijacked a pre-K group of kids to take them to an anti-choice event:
Carly Fiorina’s latest campaign stop in Iowa has upset some Des Moines-area parents, who say the GOP presidential candidate “ambushed” a group of kids on a preschool field trip — and led them to an anti-abortion rally.
On Wednesday morning, Fiorina attended the Iowa Right to Life Presidential Forum, where she emphasized her support for defunding Planned Parenthood and passing a national abortion ban.
The anti-abortion event was held at the Greater Des Moines Botanical Garden. At the same time, a group of preschoolers was also visiting the botanical garden for a field trip.
According to the Des Moines Register, Fiorina “headed straight for a group of giggling 4- and 5-year-olds” when she first arrived at the botanical garden. She reportedly ushered them toward the makeshift stage set up for the anti-abortion event — which featured a large poster of a fetus — without asking permission for the children to sit with her.
Someone should sue her. How could you lie and place children in the midst of it?
In the unlikely event that there is a just afterlife, Fiorina makes a suitable candidate for eternal pain. She’s a terrible person.
I have a new conspiracy theory.
The Republican party does not want to win the presidency.
Sound outrageous? But look at the facts:
Sarah Palin, the former Alaska governor and 2008 vice-presidential nominee who became a Tea Party sensation and a favorite of grass-roots conservatives, endorsed Donald J. Trump in Iowa on Tuesday, providing him with a potentially significant boost just 13 days before the state’s caucuses.
“Are you ready for the leader to make America great again?” Mrs. Palin said with Mr. Trump by her side at a rally at Iowa State University. “Are you ready to stump for Trump? I’m here to support the next president of the United States — Donald Trump.”
Sarah Palin is like political kryptonite. Why on earth would Donald Trump let this blabbering albatross even get near his campaign?
At Thursday’s GOP debate, something extraordinary happened. Liberals started cheering Donald Trump.
The about-face happened after Texas Sen. Ted Cruz attacked Trump for his “New York values,” values that are “socially liberal or pro-abortion or pro-gay marriage, focus around money and the media.”
There goes any chance a state anywhere near New York is going to go for this yahoo.
Meanwhile, we have a criminal act occurring in Flint Michigan, that of tainting the water supply with lead. Here’s Marco Rubio’s dumb-assed response:
While admitting to not knowing much about the situation, Rubio did say he believes the federal government should stay out of it.
“I’d love to give you a better answer on it,” Rubio said. “It’s just not an issue we’ve been quite frankly fully briefed or apprised of in terms of the role the governor has played and the state has played in Michigan on these sorts of issues.”
Rubio went on to say that he’s unable to give “a deeply detailed answer on what the right approach should be, other than to tell you that in general I believe the federal government’s role in some of these things [is] largely limited unless it involves a federal jurisdictional issue.”
This is akin to Herman C…oops, Ben Carson’s statement that he hasn’t seen enough bodies that would make him change his mind about gun rights.
Have I made my point? It’s a race to see who can become the most ghoulish and offensive(but wait, that’s non”PC”to these shitheels).
You tell me. I got nothin’.
Those are our biggest exports. And America can’t stop blabbering on in superlatives about how we have those things. Even Democrats are guilty of trying to project them into the world.
Any other stance is “weak”.
This is a perfect example of the “either-or” fallacy.
I understand that all nations want respect. Maybe that is what we should be shooting for; not self-aggrandizement- to just settle for respectable. There is plenty of middle ground where we are neutral as regards our influence around the globe. Regarding our neighbors as well.
But some people worship strength and power. The Republican frontrunner Donald Trump is one of those dangerous maniacs who appreciate it wherever they see it. Everyone remembers the student protests at Tianmen Square in the late eighties, right? Here’s what Trump had to say about the crushing of the demonstrations:
“When the students poured into Tiananmen Square, the Chinese government almost blew it. Then they were vicious, they were horrible, but they put it down with strength. That shows you the power of strength. Our country is right now perceived as weak … as being spit on by the rest of the world.”
Squashing dissent with “strength”, to Donald Trump, is considered a good thing.
I don’t have to tell you that this is utterly contrary to the best features of our democracy.
The waters are getting choppy, friends. The lines between the left and the right cannot be clearer. This vile scum, this vaudevillian narcissistic megalomaniac could be your president if the left keeps fondling its balls by vowing not to participate if they don’t get their precious candidate.
Let’s cut the shit about our obsession of being the strongest country and the most powerful. We can be good without towering over the world.
I’d like an answer as to why the mother lovers holing up in that federal preserve move freely and are able to get press.
Hello, FBI? Looking at you. The sovereign citizen concept must be given a burial. Now, they’ve cut power, and that is a big step since it ain’t warm in Oregon,but they should cut the water too. Once they are freezing and dehydrated, that might smoke them out. If not, use real smoke, tear gas and go in and get these yahoos.
If we don’t deal with these lawbreakers, it sends a message to other would be militamen to carve out their own sovereign state. It’s sedition and it has to stop someplace. If we do this right, we don’t have to have a Ruby Ridge or a Waco.
I still hate him with every fiber of my body. But the real reason for giving up abusing Ben is that I can’t keep up with the stupid fucking things he says. As an ancillary reason, it’s because his run for president is doomed-he peaked too early, lied a lot and generally fell asleep during every interview he took part in. As a consolation prize, he gets to go on speaking tours, ghostwrite more books, and perhaps land a gig in radio like Herman Cain did.
Juust one more time. Allow me that and I am done:
There is at least one fifth-grader who will not soon forget Ben Carson’s visit Thursday to Cedar Rapids, Iowa: The one whom Carson helped single out as his class’s “worst student” before a crowd of hundreds.
It happened when the Republican presidential candidate was trying to make a self-deprecating joke about his own academic ineptitude in grade school.
“As a fifth-grade student, I was a horrible student,” Carson said, according to video captured by CBS News. “Anybody here in fifth grade? Who’s the worst student?”
More than a half dozen students turned and pointed at one particular classmate, according to the Des Moines Register, and the room erupted in laughter.
Has this guy ever met any children? If so, he would know not to give them an opportunity to destroy another kid’s reputation. School is hard enough without being ridiculed in assembly. Ben may not have meant it that way, but it doesn’t matter-the fact is that he had no foresight as to what his words would do.
Carson’s boat may have too many holes in it to save him, but I think this torpedo ends his run once and for all.
