Hope the DNC funds a Depends Ad

Please run a Depends Add showing the Presidential Rethug nominee bed wetters all wailing about how the refugees pose a clear and present danger to this country. Well-what do you expect from a bunch of chickenhawk cowards who wrap themselves in the flag in order to cover up their pissed soaked pants.

"ISIS hits and the right goes wobbly"

This editorial is from the extremely conservative newspaper The Arizona Republic. Even they are appalled by the Right's cowardice.

A terror army sends a strike force to Paris to drive a dagger into the heart of Western Europe and liberal democracy. It attacks restaurants, a theater, a bar and soccer stadium, killing 129 civilians and leaving a proud nation numb with grief.

And in America, the conservative party reacts how?

It rolls up its sleeves with cold resolve and vows to crush the Islamic State.


It runs shrieking to the doors with padlocks to keep any bad guys away from us.

To misquote Churchill: we will not fight them on the beaches, we will not fight them in the streets, rather we will keep out the most vulnerable members of a war torn society. We shall completely surrender...our values.

Shades of the Election of 1980

Currently, there is not an incumbent President running for reelection. The economy is in a different state than 1980. However, I remember all too well President Carter's difficulties with the hostage situation in Iran and the military debacle of Desert One.

My concern is a terrorist strike in the United States, beyond the immense pain it will inflict, will lead to a political backlash against all Democrats and we get President Trump or Cruz.

Prior to 1980 I would not have predicted Raygun getting elected either.

A little night Nirvana

Gretchen Carlson says President Obama should listen to TV Program Homeland to beat ISIS.

On Fox News' The Real Story, Gretchen took it a step further and complained that eight air bombings a day wasn't really enough of an effort by the administration to go after ISIS and then went into lala land by quoting a character from Showtime's series Homeland, who sounds like most radical conservatives when it comes to war.

I don't know if it's scary or if there's another adjective to describe it, but Showtime a show called Homeland and one of their characters actually seems to sometimes know more about this war on terror and ISIS than possibly this administration

The character they quoted was a black ops assassin named Peter Quinn, played expertly by Rupert Friend, who wants the US to bomb Syria and the jihadist into kingdom come or as he states, pound them into a parking lot.

She later referenced getting help from Ironman, James Bond, Transformers, Indiana Jones, and Spiderman. Faux News personal superhero Liarman is apparently tied up with the Rethug primary.

Republicans use veterans to excuse wars and then deny them health care

Young Turks host Ana Kasparian slammed Republicans on Wednesday — Veteran’s Day — for dismissing any question about US military actions like the Iraq War by accusing critics of “not respecting the troops.”

“No, you don’t respect the troops,” she argued. “You use the troops as an excuse to go to war in a country where we don’t belong. And on top of that, you deny them of incredibly important health benefits so they can get the treatment they need when they come back to the United States.”

The Reich Wing will fight to the last drop of your children's blood and then happily deny them services and label them as miserable takers.

Reich Wing identify a grave threat to the American heartland

This was epitomized by a session at the conference run by Geoff Botkin of the Western Conservatory of the Arts and Sciences, about the perennial right-wing belief that civilization is on the verge of collapse. Botkin relied heavily on the Disney movie Frozen as evidence that modern America is in the thrall of Satan. Yes, that cute little children’s movie, which has gotten its fair share of right-wing stink-eye for having themes of female empowerment and independence, epitomized by the song “Let It Go.” Brian Tashman of Right Wing Watch reports:

He likened “Let It Go” to Eve’s temptation by the serpent in the Garden of Eden, deriding the song as “Satan’s rebellion anthem” that corrupts children.

The popularity of the song and its “spirit of licentiousness” shows that people don’t want to follow the totality of the Bible, he said, warning that God “will chasten our nation” as a result of the movie’s popularity.

Benghazi, Ebola, and now, Let It Go. Now that i know it drives rethugs crazy, whenever I find a crowd watching Faux News, say the airport, the aforementioned song will be my new ring tone.

Holy Shades of Jade Helm Batman

Just heard on the radio there will be military exercises in and around the Phoenix metro area this week.

They got Texas, now they've come for Maricopa county.

Call Sheriff Joe. Sound the alarm.

Rubio was late 21 times paying his credit card bill


But those payments were routinely late - 21 times over the course of those four years - sometimes because he did not pay on time, and sometimes because the Republican Party fell behind. The account, which was listed under his name, was assessed delinquency charges seven times, adding up to $1,639.47.

Hopefully his credit rating is lower than his poll numbers.

Bagger Ryan and fellow thugs will work 42 days in the last half of 2016



House Republicans have unveiled the 2016 House calendar, and it's good news for fans of not showing up for work.
Forty-two days. That's how many days, in the last six months of 2016, members of Congress will be asked to show up to potentially debate or vote or govern. There are no work days at all during August or October—in fact, September 30 will be the last work day of the year until the November elections have safely passed.

The baggers have put the political and economic destruction of the United States government on a fast track. Ayn Rand says to Bagger Ryan, too many vacation days and you are a miserable taker.
