Owen's Grandpa weighs in on twitter.

I apologize for the cut and paste, I don't use twitter and don't know how to link to the tweet. I am almost as old as Walter.

I love how the press always tries to play the "both sides" false equivalence game...

I am also impressed with the continued emotional toll that the basket of deplorables comment seems to cause all those fine upstanding Republicans.

But when multiple Republican officials say that they believe that Roy Moore is a child molesting creep, but that it's still better than voting for a Democrat - everyone shrugs and walks away.

Mother fuckers of the press listen up. It isn't "BOTH SIDES" causing this shit - it is your failure to call the GOP on their nonsense that has led to this situation.

Random thoughts on a slow Monday, today it's religion in action American style

I have not been a Christian since I was about 17, but I still remember all those years of classes and summer schools. Actually it seems to me I remember those lessons better than people paid to talk about them.

When Jesus was reputedly walking around Judea, there was homosexual activity going on.

At that time in history there were rather common ways to terminate pregnancies as well.

But he never mentioned those things. Never once brought up either subject.

What did he speak of instead? Well...

He hated divorce, and spoke against the practice often.

He railed against those who would pray in public and proclaim their piety in showy ways.

He warned against the temptation to amass wealth at expense of the poor and powerless.

He preached that welcoming strangers and helping the miserable were acts of faith.

And he stated that there was a new covenant with God, ending most the proscriptions and requirements of the Old Testament.

So what the hell do these right wing people who claim Christianity for themselves actually follow?

The whole of their religion seems to revolve around Abortion and Gay Sex. As the old joke goes, they are against 'em. Meanwhile...

They'll quote Leviticus while eating bacon wrapped shrimp and cheeseburgers.
They'll tattoo their second wife's name on their arm and show it to people at the National Prayer Breakfast - Which is held in a massive 4000 seat Acme Crystal Palace Of Worship, which I imagine has several ATM machines in the Apse for your tithing convenience.

Oh yeah, they hate the strangers in our midst and truly hate the idea that charity should be extended to anyone not like themselves.

So, I am completely unsurprised that today these people are looking for ways to absolve a pedophile. Because he hates the same people they do, and that's good enough.

Looks like Kansas continues to show us the true heart felt goals of the republican party

Yes the Kansas GOP gave us all a glimpse of the cut taxes and starve the government GOP wet dream, creating the failed state of Brownbeckistan in the process.

But wait there's more!


Accountability is for peons.

Oh, I just want to point out that Democrats have been a minority party in Kansas for decades. So MSN's reflexive both-siderism is repulsive.

From the governorís office to state agencies, from police departments to business relationships to health care, on the floors of the House and Senate, a veil has descended over the years and through administrations on both sides of the political aisle.

Let me rephrase that.

"How dare that one Democratic Governor saddled with a GOP controlled legislature fail to correct this systemic corruption all by himself. Harrumph"

Kansas shows us the future people.

Umm, does anyone believe that child molestation is bad enough to change a Republicans mind?

DO you think it's enough to push 51% of Alabamans to vote for a man who sent a KKK member to prison for killing 4 little black girls?

I believe that most Republicans in Alabama believe the KKK sentence is a bigger deal - A bigger negative factor

One year since the coup. My hatred and anger have not subsided, in fact I'm a ball of rage now

In the interest of my blood pressure and sanity, I have removed myself from contact with as many Trumpistani Nationals as I can but I can't avoid them all.

I work with the Federal Government - as a contracted employee, not GS - and oddly enough an amazing number of "small government conservatives" are nursing at the Government tit.

With Trumpsters I have to work with, I am blandly professional in our daily interactions and immediately dismissive when they try to convince me that the toupee wearing balloon full of cheezwiz is anything but a worthless hack.

Those attempts are happening less often recently. Huh, that's odd.

Professional, educated middle class to affluent white folks - they voted for 45. Fuck 'em

I have a Cousin who still works in the mines, and he KNOWS it's a dying industry. Voted for 45 anyway.

I have an Aunt that taught school for her whole adult life and now has a chronic condition requiring very expensive care - any cuts in Medicare would bankrupt her. Voted for Orange.

Because the same people who convinced them that Democrats are evil told them that Donald Fucking Goat Fucking Trump would make everything better again.

I rarely talk to my relatives now - but that is not much of a loss. I've lived here on the prairie coming on 19 years and I've been visited by one uncle one time and my brother twice. Not shocked at all of course, after I married a Japanese woman in the mid 80s, not only did no one attend, but no one acknowledged our existence for several years.

I've tried and my wife has tried these last 30 years to bridge the gap but all that ended 366 days ago. Fuck those people.

I had friends in the service, with whom I thought I'd have a life long connection, turn into deranged drooling fuck knuckles - They have no role in my life now. They voted for Trump. Fuck those guys

I moved my VFW membership to a post that is predominantly AA so that I can drink beer and shoot pool with Democrats. (Bonus benefit - No Toby Keith or Hank Williams Jr. on the jukebox.)

that's it - sorry for the swears - I'm done.
