WTFaux News--Fox News Confronts Shrub's Bro over unfair Tax Cuts


Republican presidential candidate Jeb Bush suggested that the wealthiest top 1 percent of Americans would receive more benefits from this tax plan than the middle class because “that’s just the way it is.”

When Faux news points out the festering boil, which masquerades as rethug economic policy, then the blood moon tonight must truly be the harbinger of the end times. I need to hurry up and get one last Moon Pie and slurpee.

Cruz vows to introduce Ayatollah to 72 Virgins if elected President


Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) vowed to tear up the Iran nuclear deal on his first day in office and threatened to kill the Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, if he’s elected president.

The religious conservative crowd at the Values Voters summit lustily cheered his bloodthirsty comments during his appearance Friday morning at the annual event.

Someone should introduce him to some decent medication and a psychiatrist.

Kasich would reject a budget deal of 10 to 1 of spending cuts to tax increases, debate 2012



It was four years ago last week when the eight Republican presidential candidates participated in a debate and were asked an important question: Fox’s Bret Baier asked the Republican field whether the candidates would accept a debt-reduction deal in which they received $10 in spending cuts for every $1 in tax increases.

Not one of the candidates raised their hand – a reaction that drew raucous applause from the GOP audience in attendance. It was a striking display, highlighting Republican hostility to compromise, even when a proposed deal is stacked ridiculously in their favor.

Kasich is a punish the poor Rethug. Never forget that.

Yogi Berra Stat.

He had 5 seasons where he had less strikeouts than homeruns. Not likely to see that again from a Hall of Fame player.

Comment heard on the radio today regarding the Pope's visit

Person 1: I am so excited to see the Pope, it's almost like seeing Brittany Spears.

Person 2: Don't compare the Pope to Brittany Spears.

Person 1: You're right, there have been many Popes.

Duggars Plunder Local Kripsy Kreme, What a Bunch of Takers

The Duggar family inspired ire this week for snagging no less than 168 donuts during a giveaway at Krispy Kreme, Inquisitr reports.

The family apparently went to the donut chain for their “Talk Like a Pirate Day” promotion, where anyone who said something like “Arr matey” got a free donut. Customers who went the extra step of dressing up got a dozen donuts. It’s possible Krispy Kremes wasn’t expecting 14 Duggars to show up in full pirate gear, but they all got a box of donuts that it seems unlikely they’ll be able to eat.

The Duggar family crest is now at Jolly Roger jamming a donut in his mouth.

White House All But Calls GOP Racist

The White House no longer minces words. President Obama's administration is using the freedom that comes with not having to run for another election to maximal effect.
The White House called out Donald Trump specifically and the GOP generally for their support of prejudice and intolerance in their policies and actions. This was triggered by Trump's silence after a supporter made offensive remarks towards Muslims and the president.

The White House was specific. And it had prescient advice for the GOP that it should heed.

"People who hold these offensive views are part of Mr. Trump's base," said Josh Earnest. "Mr. Trump himself would be the first to tell you that he's got the biggest base of any Republican politician these days. Now it is too bad that he wasn't able to summon the same kind of patriotism that we saw from Senator McCain, who responded much more effectively and directly when one of his supporters at one of his campaign events made the same kind of false claims.
Now what is also unfortunate is that Mr. Trump isn't the first Republican politician to countenance these kinds of views in order to win votes. In fact, that is precisely what every Republican presidential candidate is doing when they decline to denounce Mr. Trump's cynical strategy, because they are looking for those same votes.

Now other Republicans have successfully used this strategy as well. You will recall that one Republican congressman told a reporter that he was David Duke without the baggage. That congressman was elected by a majority of his colleagues in the House of Representatives to the third highest-ranking position in the House. Those same members of Congress blocked immigration reform. Those same members of Congress oppose reauthorization of the Voting Rights Act. Those same members of Congress couldn't support a simple funding bill because they are eager to defend the confederate flag.

I would like to think GOP heads would explode over these comments, but I think they embrace their racist views.

No, a thousand times No, Shrub You Failed in Your Mission to Keep America Safe



CNN’s Wednesday night Republican debate, with its emphasis on personal animosity and weird answers about women on the $10 bill, provided plenty of entertainment value for political junkies and late night hosts. But the most consequential moment of the evening was a jaw-dropper of a lie that Jeb Bush told during one of the boring stretches in the middle of the three-hour slog.

In a bit of ugly sparring over who did or did not support the Iraq War, Jeb Bush, in a moment of pique, jumped in with, “You know what? As it relates to my brother, there is one thing I know for sure, he kept us safe.”

The audience, comprised of Republican primary voters went nuts, and so Bush doubled down on his claim that having 3,000 citizens die from a terrorist attack -- the largest in American history -- “kept us safe."

The greatest single lie of last night's blowhard fest. Arbusto Shrub failed miserably in his duties as CinC. Shrub ignored threats, wondered America while the U.S. was burning, then told everyone to duct tape their house and go shopping.

Dangers of second hand smoke

Just drove into a gas station where a tracker trailer was delivering fuel and watched a guy walk right by it while smoking.

The Reich Wing "debaters" keep saying ISIS is an existential threat to the U.S.

Sheesh--in 1943 facing the Imperial Japanese Navy and 300 Divisions brought forth by the Nazis these guys would have crapped the bed.
