If Only In America!

By now everybody with a half brain knows that our Congress is about as worthless as tits on a boar.  Their approval rating is damn near zero and in some circles it is zero……and with that bad news for them….they change nothing….they keep playing the same game they have been playing for over 5 years….my opinion and yours means NOTHING to them.

The only way we can change this is by voting them out of office and guess what….we are not capable of doing that!  We have had numerous elections for the voter to change things and we just cannot bring ourselves to do that one simple task….replace the spineless Congress and try to start over…..it is beyond SAD!

The news of the day is that France president Hollande has basically thrown the present government out of office……..ahhhhh now there is a choice we could use….

France’s Prime Minister Manuel Valls presented the resignation of his government to the president on Monday, Francois Hollande’s office said in a statement.

The statement said a new government would be formed on Tuesday in line with the “direction he (the president) has defined for our country.”

Valls’ resignation gives him Hollande,  the power to set up a new cabinet.

Now there is an idea whose time has come in America.  There is something to be said for the parliamentary style of governance.

Since the voter cannot work up enough courage to do the right thing….then take it out of their hands….dissolve Congress and tell the voter to try again……I know it sounds a bit harsh but something has got to give for this country to move forward….if not we will be stuck in this cycle of stupid.

America can NO longer wait for the perfect statesman….we need action and we need it NOW!

Once Is All It Takes

Opinion from the desk of the Editor:

 

The situation in Ferguson has brought up a few points that few people are paying attention to at this time……and could most likely not give damn in the last place…..that would be the running total the cops give the media daily of the number of arrests.

I have heard that the US is a place for second chances….do you believe that manure?  It is not!  Though the idea makes great news fodder for the MSM…….Americans punish people for their digressions of the past….especially when it is about an arrest that someone may have had in their past……

(Newser) – Whether you were charged with a crime or not, an arrest at a young age could haunt you for life. And that’s something that should concern quite a few of us: About a third of American adults—some 77.7 million people—have criminal records on the FBI’s database, and they can be very difficult to wipe clean, the Wall Street Journal reports. Just half of those records are up to date, meaning they might not include information on charges being dropped or never levied.

“There is a myth that if you are arrested and cleared that it has no impact,” says a Georgetown law professor. Not so, as the Journal reveals in several personal stories:

  • Precious Daniels, 39, of Detroit, was arrested over disorderly conduct in a 2009 protest. The charge was dropped, but when she applied for a Census Bureau job, the Bureau noticed her arrest. She was unable to prove she hadn’t been convicted because, she says, the courthouse said it had no record of her case.
  • One Jose Hernandez was arrested for sexual assault in 2012; thing is, he was the wrong Jose Hernandez. Charges were dropped, but he still had to pay $22,500 in bail and hire a lawyer to have his record expunged. “Needless to say, that hasn’t happened yet,” he says. His family is still paying off loans related to the case.
  • Barbara Ann Finn, 74, ran into trouble when she applied for part-time school cafeteria work. The school district in Maryland said her fingerprints matched FBI records. It’s unclear why, but she has a theory: In 1963, she was with a friend who was shoplifting. Finn was taken into custody, released, and “never thought any more about it.” Documents show she wasn’t charged, but she hasn’t been able to have the record expunged because—as in Daniels’ case—local officials can’t seem to find it.

With our form of “justice” you are not innocent until proven guilty only in the minds of mental midgets…..when arrested you are paraded before the press as a convicted person and it stays with you throughout your life…yes even if you are proven innocent.

Take a person that is arrested as a child pornography….they are paraded to the press who runs story after story on the subject and the person….and then when the person is found to but not guilty nothing is written or broadcast on their behalf……the person is screwed for the rest of their life.  The person may be innocent but the community has convicted them and that is where it is at.

So one arrest is all it takes to destroy a person and their chance for a normal life.

And we call it JUSTICE!

2014 Babbling Buffoons Of Babylon #15

Here we go again……..another edition of the B3……the words of the mindless……and the thoughnts of total MORONS!

1–Remember Tancredo as a Congressman?  NO?  He was one of those babbling toads on the Right….well he is no longer in Congress but that has not stopped his brain dead comments…..this one is on the Right’s fave topic du jour…impeachment……

Former congressman Tom Tancredo once again called on House Republicans to vote to impeach President Obama, writing this weekend in WorldNetDaily that the GOP should “call the White House’s bluff and proceed with impeachment.”

He warns that if Republicans are “afraid to challenge presumptuous dictatorial behavior,” then “the war is already lost and we should all stock our ammunition shelves and join a militia.”

Just another media whore looking for that 10 minutes.

2–Bryan Fischer of the American Family Assn…….a group of hypocritical twats has something to say about the people of Iraq……

American Family Association spokesman Bryan Fischer is outraged that the U.S. is intervening in Iraq to stop ISIS, who has been attacking Christians and other Muslims throughout the country.

Fischer believes that President Obama only intervened to stop the extermination of the Yazidis, who practice an ancient religion yet are considered by ISIS fighters and others to be “devil worshipers.” He began today’s edition of “Focal Point” by railing against Obama, saying the president only decided to launch airstrikes in Iraq in order to defend “devil worshipers.”

“They go after devil worshipers and all of the sudden the entire weight of the United States government is sent in there to relieve them and to avenge them,” he said. “Those are the Yazidis.”

You just cannot make up this much hate and stupidity….now can you?

3–Do you remember Cliven Bundy?    I had wondered if he is any kin to Ted Bundy….sorry for the digression.  Any way this total moron has been talking with God….again.

Cliven Bundy, who recently told a meeting of the Independent American Party, a Third Party to the right of the GOP, that his standoff with the federal government over his refusal to pay grazing fees was part of a spiritual battle against government tyranny:

“If the standoff with the Bundys was wrong, would the Lord have been with us?” Bundy asked, noting that no one was killed as tensions escalated. “Could those people that stood without fear and went through that spiritual experience … have done that without the Lord being there? No they couldn’t.”

Bundy also cited personal inspiration from God in establishing his course of action.

“The Lord told me … if (the sheriff doesn’t) take away these arms (from federal agents), we the people will have to face these arms in a civil war. He said, ‘This is your chance to straighten this thing up,'” Bundy said.

Sorry but my God has better things to do than pay even the slightest attention to a dick wad like Bundy.

4–Did you know that Lincoln was a commie?  Well he was according to that trash mouth idiot Walter Kennedy……

Did you know Abraham Lincoln was a Marxist? Oh yeah, his whole goal was to impose socialism on America, destroy states rights and limited government, and oh by the way, attack “religious values in America” in order to supplant God and put government in His place.

Yes, hardcore neo-Confederate Walter Kennedy had a chat with Kevin Swanson, who told his flock that “history is important” right before chopping it into little pieces by presenting us with the wholly mythical “churchgoing, freedom-loving Southern slave-owner,”

I love these morons on the Right that try every angle to re-write history…..they make my job too easy….maybe I should send them a Kwanzaa card in December……

5–If there is anyone and believe me there are many, on the Right that needs to be slapped so hard he losses a day is Rush…….he had his say on the death of Robin Williams…….

“He had it all, but he had nothing,” Limbaugh opined. “He made everyone else laugh, but was miserable inside.”

“It fits a certain picture, or a certain image that the left has,” he continued. “Low expectations and general unhappiness and so forth.” On the issue of “survivor’s guilt,” Limbaugh said, “That is a constant measurement that is made by political leftists in judging the country.”

Limbaugh is a disgusting lump of shit that deserves NO peace for turning this tragedy into something political for his ratings….and anyone that agrees with him is an even larger lump of disgusting shit.  Did I cover that well enough?  is there any doubt what I think of the sack of manure Rush?

6–This is my fave……illustrates the ignorance of f*cking toads on the Right!

Then there is thee Right’s favorite child molester, Ted “fucking” Nugent…….this time he is not making some moronic gun statement….no this time he has advice of Native Americans……..

After a group of Native Americans protested outside a concert by Ted Nugent, the late-1970s rocker verbally lashed out, calling them “stinkyass unclean dipshIt protestors” and calling for Native Americans to be “rounded up and shipped back to wherever they came from!”

“They need to just shut up and admit WE WERE HERE FIRST! Nobody asked them to come to America! They got a problem with a successful, happy, white American, they should just go back where they came from!” he added. “Hell, it’s past time these pussies were ROUNDED UP AND SHIPPED BACK TO WHEREVER THEY CAME FROM! I’ll even donate the shipping crates!”

What can I say?  Another disgusting ignorant toad on the Right that does not have enough brains to pour piss out of a boot with the instructions written on the heel.  He said that if Obama got re-elected that he would be in jail shortly after….I AM STILL WAITING!

This idiot is as worthless as a turnip…which is not fair for a turnip is edible and therefor not useless….cannot say the same of pedophile Nugent.

7–Since 2008 economics have been bad for most Americans….that is those that actually create something at their job, at least the lucky ones that still have a gig to go to…..it seems that Nebraskan congressman Lee Terry is whining about his pay…….

Rep. Lee Terry (R-NE) is fighting pressure to agree to a pay cut for members of Congress, instead complaining that the $174,000 annual salary was already frozen.

This is not the first time Terry has complained about his salary. In 2013, during the Republican-led government shutdown that furloughed up to one million American workers, many members of Congress gave up their paychecks as a symbolic gesture. Terry refused at first.

Despite voting to prolong the shutdown, Terry explained to the Omaha World-Herald why he especially needed to keep collecting a salary. “I’ve got a nice house and a kid in college, and I’ll tell you we cannot handle it,” Terry said. “Giving our paycheck away when you still worked and earned it? That’s just not going to fly.” The comments blew up, forcing Terry to backtrack and agree not to collect his salary until after the shutdown ended.

All I can tell this yutz is if he is looking for sympathy to go to the Oxford dictionary and look between ‘shit’ and ‘syphilis’ and he will find it…..that is the best I can do for this douche.

8–It seems that a Mississippi Tea Party member is asking God for help……..you REALLY need to read this one!

According to a report in the Jackson Free Press, at the start of a speaking event in Flowood, Mississippi, hosted by Johnson, Nicholson delivered an opening prayer in which he asked Almighty God to do what Almighty God apparently does best: To “be violent against” establishment Republicans who disagree with Tea Partyers over how best to achieve their mutually agreed upon goals.

“We ask for your blessing upon the conservatives in this state, that they might stand strong and firm,” reportedly began Nicholson’s prayer. “Father, we even ask for you to bless our enemies, and Lord they are truly our enemies that head the Republican Party and the whole political establishment.”

Nicholson’s idea of “blessing” one’s enemies, however, is a bit strange. He continued:

We’re asking, Father, for two things. We’re asking, Father, that you would expose them, set division amongst them, set them one against another, bring confusion and fear into their camp, into their thinking, for the purpose of pulling them down, for casting them down out of their high offices and reducing them, Lord, to having no power in this state. So, Lord, that you might raise up and seek the righteous in the positions of power that this state might once more be a state that honors you in all that it does.

Father, we’re asking that in all of the tribulations were asking you to bring upon them, that it would work change in their heart — that you would use it to bring true Godly sorrow, that they might truly repent for their iniquity and their wickedness, for that they would be restored to you, that you would have honor in the state of Mississippi for the great works that you’ve done in correcting and purifying the government and rescuing and saving the worst of us.

The more these religious types talk the more the idea of Christianity becomes non-existent.

9–I just love the conerv asswads….you know the ones that are just horrified that there is a black prez and of course he is somehow working against the US……a/holes like Rick Wiles…….

Rick Wiles is pretty sure that President Obama is a “foreign plant” who was put in office by Saudi Arabia in order to destroy America. But maybe it wasn’t Saudi Arabia after all, as yesterday on “Trunews,” Wiles and right-wing documentary filmmaker Joel Gilbert wondered if President Obama — along with his entire family — secretly works for the CIA, Great Britain, or Russia, or maybe all three, who knows!

You have to pity these people…their whole world went to shit when the country elected a black guy as president.

#15 comes to an end…..but never fear their are a wealth of morons in the weeds and all of them cannot wait to open their mouths and shove their feet into it…….and I will be waiting and watching……#16 will not be far behind….see you there.

Is The M-IC Taking Over?

M-IC?  Military-Industrial Complex, that multi-billion dollar business that has turned the world into one big battlefield…..all in the name of profit.  It was bad enough that they were buying politicians like cheap candy….but now they have branched out into our system of law enforcement……turning our police forces into an extension of the military……and it is not getting better…..not by a long shot!

(Newser) – Critics such as Sen. Claire McCaskill say the initial police response in Ferguson, Mo., actually made things worse because cops were equipped like soldiers of war. No wonder, write Elizabeth Beavers and Michael Shank in the New York Times. The Pentagon and Homeland Security Department are keeping police forces across the nation awash in surplus military gear and vehicles. Under something called the 1033 program enacted in 1997, the defense department has provided $4 billion worth of military equipment to law enforcement agencies over that span. Homeland Security, meanwhile, has doled out $34 billion in “terrorism grants” so police departments can armor up.

The problem? Police departments have begun sending out officers with such gear for routine operations such as drug raids or to serve search warrants, the authors write. “As Ferguson shows, this militarizing of routine police work exacerbates tensions and increases the likelihood of disorder. This, in turn, appears to justify a militarized police response, and so the cycle continues.” Solution? Kill the 1033 program and tell Homeland Security to stop those grants. “Police militarization is a growing national threat,” they write. “If the federal government doesn’t act to stop it, the future of law enforcement everywhere will look a lot like Ferguson.” Click for the full column.

Is this necessary?  Is this what all those conspiracy freaks have been warning against for decades?  How long will this go on?  What can us mere mortals do to stop this slide?

Protests have picked up……and of course the narrative the police want to spin is that it is all “outside agitators”……..there have been many “celebs” that are jumping on this bandwagon….but the one that impresses me most is that of a Holocaust survivor……..

Earlier yesterday, 90-year-old Holocaust survivor Hedy Epstein, a political activist and St. Louis resident, was one of nine protesters arrested for blocking the entrance to a building where Gov. Jay Nixon has offices. “I’ve been doing this since I was a teenager. I didn’t think I would have to do it when I was 90,” she told the Nation. “We need to stand up today so that people won’t have to do this when they’re 90.” She was among a group of more than 100 protesters calling for the arrest of the officer who shot and killed unarmed teenager Michael Brown and the removal of the National Guard from the situation.

Here is a person that has first hand knowledge of what human rights abuses look like……she is a person that needs to be heard…..but sadly she may never get her chance…..the narrative is about criminals and agitators…..not the abuse of power or the committing of abuses against humanity.

Sadly, the M-IC will win this fight…..and Ferguson will be the loser big time.
