Are You Sick Of All The Patriotic Bullsh*t!

Opinion from the desk of the Editor

 

WARNING:  This post contains a vulgar language that may offend some of my readers sensibilities…..but there is only ONE way to get this point across….so if my reader is offended I apologize and they need to get over it!

 

This post is for all of you that think using the terms “patriotic” or “Patriotism” is somehow cleansing your soul of responsibility for the condition of our veterans care……actions speak louder than words and so far MOST Americans are cowards!  That is right….I said……COWARDS!

You thump your scrawny chests and yell about this person is a socialist or that person is a Muslim but when it comes to the vets returning home you are a bullshit artist.  Why?  You know what shape the veterans care is and yet you keep voting for slogans and bullshit solution………..you vote for the biggest cowardly cocksuckers on the planet……..you, in your mindless state think that all will be alright because there are charities the vets can turn to for help……Really?  Charities?

YOU by your thoughtless voting have done this to our veterans….,you mindless TWATS!  These charities, most of them, are doing all they can and should be congratulated…..but the point is the country did this to our vets and the country should be held responsible……by that I mean YOU and the worthless ASSHOLES you elect!

I thought that after Vietnam the nation and itrs people had maybe learned a lesson…..WRONG!  They are still the same coward pricks that crapped on the vets then as they are doing NOW!

It does not end there.  What about the vets that return without injuries of any kind….how is their reintegration going?

A new study released Tuesday says half of U.S. troops return to civilian life with untreated mental and physical illnesses, and one in every 10 has thought of suicide or planned to take their lives.

The survey of Los Angeles County veterans showed that 80 percent of veterans didn’t have a job when they left the military, and close to a quarter earned salaries at or below the poverty level.

It also discovered that 40 percent of the veterans surveyed hadn’t made arrangements for a permanent place to live before leaving the armed services, contributing to veterans’ homelessness.

Conrats America!  Not only are your a screaming asshole to our wounded vets but you are doing NOTHING for the ones that return without major medical problems….Could you people be more PATHETIC?  The country is getting more so with each new war….it had rather ignore the problems of the vets than work for a goddam solution.

So I ask you……ARE YOU FED UP WITH ALL THE PATRIOTIC BULLSHIT?

 

GOP And Pathetic Politics

It is bad enough that we have a political party in this country, a country that is proud of its freedoms and rights, that has No issues on which to run…the best they can do is a non-existent voter fraud, abortion and marriage equality…..the GOP has No idea how to make people’s lives better or how to jump start a lagging economy or for that matter any relevant issues at all…….

They have spent a couple of years re-drawing districts so that their candidates can pick their votes and a desperate run to limit who can vote….all in the name of preventing voter fraud, which is NOT a problem by a long shot……but now Kansas illustrates just how far the GOP will go to win an election.

It appears that if you are a candidate in Kansas and have low polling numbers and you ant to drop out of the race…..you cannot………

This much is clear: Republican Pat Roberts of Kansas hopes to keep his Senate seat in the midterm elections this year. After that, things get fuzzy. Heading into this week, Roberts faced a strong challenge from independent candidate Greg Orman and a lesser one from Democratic candidate Chad Taylor. Yesterday, Taylor declared that he was dropping out of the race, a move seen as bad news for Roberts because polls show him losing a one-on-one matchup with Orman. Taylor didn’t explain his withdrawal, but the speculation is that Democrats asked him to step down to increase the chances that Roberts (and thus the GOP) would lose the seat.

Today, however, Republican Secretary of State Kris Kobach declared that Taylor must remain in the race, reports the Kansas City Star. He cites a technicality, saying that Taylor filled out his paperwork incorrectly by failing to declare that he would be “incapable” of serving, as state law specifies. (Taylor can’t simply resubmit, because yesterday was the deadline to withdraw.) Democrats say Kobach, who has endorsed Roberts, is playing politics with the move, though it’s unclear whether the party or Taylor will file a formal legal challenge. “This could well end up in court, and I don’t have a good sense for how the courts would rule on this question,” an election-law expert tells the newspaper. Given the stakes, this is no small matter, points out Politico. “The decision could undermine efforts to unseat Roberts and potentially rewrite the narrative of the 2014 midterms.”

I bet you thought that the GOP was all about people making choices and taking responsibility, right?  Well not in Kansas……to try and win an election they will force a candidate to run even though he does not want to…..is that the America all you moronic Righties keep going on about?  Sounds more like something that you would be forced to do under the Soviet style of government…….

Sorry, you guys are PATHETIC!

Is the South Dragging the Rest of the Nation Down? | Alternet

First let me answer the question……unequivocally………..YES!

The South is a hot bed of conservative politics….well that is not accurate…..it is hot bed of Tea Party politics……and for decades I have wondered just what they were doing…they seem to vote to screw themselves and then continue to screw themselves…..I have asked where is the rationale?

I read this piece and thought that it would explain it situation a bit………

OOPS! I Did It Again!

SORRY PEOPLE….AFTER CHECKING THIS……IT IS A HOAX….DAMMIT!

Funny reading anyway…a little wishful thinking……

 

Remember back in the day when Rep. Michele Bachmann was in the news almost daily…..she had some really great things to say…..but she has been a bit out of the news since 2012….her defunct presidential bid was the source of many jabs from the late night comedians….but not much in the past couple of years……but all that is about to change!

in case you missed the news while watching Ukraine or Iraq or The Simpsons or whatever had your attention this weekend……SHE”S BAAAAAAAAAAAK!

FORT COLLINS, Co.— Michele Bachmann, Republican congresswoman from Minnesota, was arrested early Tuesday morning in Fort Collins, Colorado for driving under the influence of a controlled substance. After reportedly running a red light and failing multiple sobriety tests, Bachmann was taken into custody and booked at the Fort Collins jail. She was released at 5 a.m. on $1,000 bail.

According to a source familiar with the situation, Rep. Bachmann was spending the holidays with her family in Colorado, and decided to indulge in cannabis consumption, following the state’s legalization of the drug on January 1st. Bachmann readily admitted to arresting officers that she had consumed marijuana that evening, but claimed that she did not know that it was illegal to drive under the influence.

What more can I say……Thank You MS Bachmann!

This Will Be Our Life Under President Cruz Blue Nation Review

Back in 2008 I thought Sarah Palin was a joke and that has not really changed much in 6 years……and then a Senator named Cruz shows up in Washington and the jokes just got worse……

I saw this piece on Twitter and just had to press it for my readers……I cannot think of anything that could be worse than a Cruz presidency…..

Dialogue On A Summer’s Day

I spend many hours reading, researching and writing…..and from time to time I get out of the bat cave and venture out into this big wide world…..I stop by a cafe shop owned by a friend, Gail……she has blue mountain coffee and I have a great desire to drink good coffee.  Awhile back I was sitting reading the news when I overheard a group next to y table talking about my state’s new open carry law……as listened I realized that these guys were part of a local militia group….I will call them Southern Guard…….

They talked and argued and seem to want to boycott or protest the business that had posted signs that called for NO guns on their premises…..remember I was eavesdropping a bit……well after a bit the loudest voice and I guessed he would be the leader of this group, went for a coffee refill…..

On his way back I stopped him and asked if I could have a word with him……he agreed and sat down at my little table…….Rambo (not his real name but for the sake of this post it is)……”What can I do for you?”

ME:  “I am sorry but I couldn’t help but overhear your talk about the open carry law……”

R:  “So?”

ME:  “Are you guys part of the Southern Guard”?

R:  Yep

ME:  “Do you guys support the tea Party”?

R:  Yep and we will make sure that McDaniel is elected (McDaniel is the TP candidate running against Cochran in Mississippi)

ME:  Do all of you feel the same way?

R:  Yep….but why all the question, chief?

I explained to him that I was a blogger and write a lot about politics…….

R:  What about you…..Tea Partyer?

ME:  In some ways yes….but I am trying to inform myself about the Party and what they are standing for and how they will help the country.

ME:  Are most militias supporters of the Tea Party?

R:  Most of the ones that I know are supporters of Tea Party candidates.

ME:  So you guys are kinda like the military arm of the Party?

R:  I may not go that far but to my thinking the answer is yes…..

ME:  Do you support all the ideals of the party?

R:  As long as it is pro-gun, pro-life, socially conservative and small government….America for Americans….we will protect our country against all foes.

ME: So most of you guys are on board with these ideals?

R:  Every damn one of us….we want to protect America for REAL Americans……

(I wanted to ask him just what he had meant by America for Americans but I had already promised Gail, the owner, that I would never start a political debate in her place again………and then real Americans….. pretty sure I know what that means….but I had given my word….so I had to let it go…..)

ME:  Thanks for letting me pick your brain and hope to see you at the polls…..

R:  right on brother

After my encounter with Rambo I got to thinking that just about everything he had said I had heard all before….in history books.

It was sounding like the “Southern Guard” was a present day remake of the old Brown Shirts….that thuggish group in 1930’s Germany…..

I have tried to give the Tea party the benefit of the doubt but as time has gone by, since the election of Obama, this party is sounding more and more like a racist group that thinks that there are sub-humans in this country and they need to be purged.

The comments from the extreme Right….the attitude of the people who claim to be party members towards the different races and religions….smacks of racism.

I have tried to be fair to the Party but as time goes by I cannot any more…….to me they are just a re-make of the racists from the 1950’s……..the sooner the Party gets put away the better……they try to hide behind these cool sounding memes…..they are NO better than the racists I fought against so many years ago…..

Just my thoughts……take them or leave them…….matters not……..
