So far it has been an interesting year……lots of crap going on while we were otherwise distracted……and in those days the Babbling…….. Buffoons have not given their mouths a rest….they just cannot shut up and here is Chuq to let you know what you have missed….
1–The Ukraine is about to explode and of course everyone has an opinion on what we should do…..and that includes presidential hopeful Rand Paul……
Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) said that if he were president, he would not let Russian President Vladimir Putin get away with his invasion into Ukraine.
Paul on Monday described the movement of Russian troops into the Crimean Peninsula as a gross violation of Ukrainian sovereignty, and argued it is the United States’ responsibility to take the lead in condemning it.
May I remind Sen. Paul of one thing…”if worms had machine guns, birds would not f*ck with them”…….
2–And then there is this Arkansas judge…….
If you have gay sex, then it is just a “small step” to sex with a dog. “Sluts are just whores in training.” Women shouldn’t make an “emotional decision to divorce because the husband stepped out” if he was a “good provider.” And, whatever you do, don’t go to Disney World during “gay/lesbian week.”
Those are just some of the gems uncovered after the Arkansas blog Blue Hog Report discovered that an pseudonymous commenter on a message board for Louisiana State University fans was sitting Arkansas state Judge Mike Maggio. Judge Maggio, who posted under the username “geauxjudge” offered questionable views on race, sexuality, women and many other issues.
The comment about sex with dogs arose in a discussion thread about a “Vegas woman arrested for sex with pit bull.” Maggio suggested that “TGGLBS sex” — an apparent reference to “transgender, gay, lesbian or bisexual sex” — is a gateway to copulating with canines:
Stupidity has a voice and he lives in Arkansas….
3–First there are the commies….then there were the socialists and then there were Nazis……all about the same person….you know I understand that Obama may not be too damn popular but please people make up your little minds…….read this…..
Given that End Times radio host Rick Wiles is a sane and reasonable man with a long history of being right about a vast number of things, it is only logical for us to be alarmed when we learned from him today that America has been overthrown by Nazis.
As Wiles was preparing to interview John Whitehead, president of the Rutherford Institute, on his radio program yesterday, he furiously declared that America has been taken over by a Nazi dictatorship as the culmination of a plot set in motion following World War II. This same Nazi movement is also behind the events in Ukraine, which will lead to World War III where America and other Western nations will be the evil Axis Powers while Russia and China will be the good guys:
One would think that these mental midgets would pick one disastrous political system and stick with it……maybe the Right should form a “coordinating committee” to get their people all on the same page….just a thought.
4–It is that socialism thingy…….it seems anything that Obama talks about is somehow socialism……and guess what? Minimum wage is NO different…….and good old louie Gohmert speaks……….
I have to first note that when Gohmert was asked about income inequality, his immediate response was to start talking about socialism. When he was asked about “entitlement programs,” he said they give people incentives not to work. If you look at the DeLay video, there is the same kind of sentiment expressed- in fact, for Delay, it isn’t only socialism – the minimum wage and “welfare” are unconstitutional. (One must assume from the context that he is talking about all government programs, like Social Security, Medicare, Medicaid, and food stamps).
5–At the recent CPAC….good old Tom DeLay had so much to say….and as usual it is all so much MANURE!
DeLay not only said that welfare and the minimum wage were unconstitutional; he had a whole list of wild and crazy pronouncements, including:
- that for the first time in a hundred years, progressives have completely taken over the government and that’s why things are so terrible right now. Um, Tom, FDR passed Social Security and the minimum wage; broke up the big Wall Street banks; instituted stiff regulations on all kinds of big businesses; passed an income tax with a top rate of 90%; made it far easier for workers to join unions; and got the biggest expansion of student financial aid in history. Truman got the biggest foreign aid package ever passed; pushed hard for national health care; and railed against “a return of the Wall Street dictatorship.” In the JFK and LBJ years, government created the Peace Corps, the Civil Rights Act, the Voting Rights Act, Medicare, Medicaid, the Fair Housing Act, immigration liberalization, Legal Aid, Head Start, the Pell Grant, and the War on Poverty. All those things you bitterly oppose, except for Obamacare, were passed by past progressives who ran the government.
- that under Republican passed welfare reform, single moms started marrying the fathers and everything got better than things are now with all this wild food stamp usage. There are so many things wrong with that statement it makes one’s head spin, but let’s stick with the big two. First, more and more people are staying unmarried longer and longer (or never getting married at all), and that includes mothers. Second, welfare reform passed during the biggest economic boom in this country in the last 50 years, the last six years of the Clinton era– of course when there is full employment, less people will be on food stamps than in the biggest economic downturn since the Great Depression!
- that the progressive philosophy itself is unconstitutional. That would have been a big surprise to the writers of the first amendment to our constitution, who said that the freedom of speech and conscience was part of being an American. It would have been a big surprise to Lincoln, TR, FDR, Truman, the Kennedys, Martin Luther King, Jr, and all the other great progressives in American history. According to Tom DeLay, “Income inequality is a code word for redistribution of wealth, a Socialist mentality. The progressives don’t believe in the Constitution.”
This from the mot corrupt Speaker we have ever had….but the truly sad thing about him is that the TP gives him way too much credit………all this is so much silliness.
6–I love doublespeak……..
Paul Ryan: “I didn’t mean that black people are lazy, I just meant that in areas where a lot of black people live, a lot of people are lazy”
Now that explains……NOTHING!
7–Of course this missing airplane has Obama written all over it…….
right-wing conspiracy theorist Jim Garrow — a notorious con man who now claims to be a former CIA agent — believes that President Obama blew up the missing Malaysia Airlines plane as part of a “jihad” against China.
He said the military forced the plane to “land by wire” at a base in Diego Garcia and interrogated the “nerds” aboard the jet who are working “for China designing ‘classified’ leading edge computer/internet control software and are carrying the matching hardware with them on the plane.”
Lots of theories and as usual only an idiot would believe them……..
Edition 6 is in the can….that’s a wrap…….stay tuned….
