I am battling a internet connection that will not cooperate……please bear with me……..
Great reference to an old funk song from the 70’s…..
There have been times when I have been caught with my brain in neutral and today has been one of those days……
I got the news from my friend over at “The John Liming Report”……the weeping angle (Dr. Who reference) of thew Congress will step down from his leadership roll in October…..
John Boehner dropped a political bombshell this morning, announcing that he’s not only resigning as House speaker but as a congressman as well. Boehner will leave at the end of October, reports the New York Times. Boehner himself told House Republicans in a closed-door session today, reports Politico. The surprise move comes as Boehner faces another revolt from conservative House members about a potential government shutdown, this time over Planned Parenthood funding.
“The Speaker believes putting members through prolonged leadership turmoil would do irreparable damage to the institution,” an aide tells the Hill. “Speaker Boehner believes that the first job of any Speaker is to protect this institution and, as we saw yesterday with the Holy Father, it is the one thing that unites and inspires us all.” (Boehner was seen crying during the pope’s address, though he tends to cry a lot.) The same aide says Boehner, 65, actually intended to quit last year and stuck around only because of Eric Cantor’s stunning election defeat.
Now in October who will emerge as the top dog for the GOP in the House?
It seems that many GOPers are dancing on Boehner’s grave…..read more…..

Where will the process of choosing the next Speaker take the country? Will we be subjected to a lengthy partisan battle between the GOP and the Tea Party upstarts? Where does that leave the shutdown?
Lots of questions and few good answers……
They Came From Beyond Reason…….would have been a great title for a 50’s movie from RKO, starring Dan Durea…..if only……..
The election of ’08 brought to the forefront of politics the Tea Party…..and ever since people have tried to explain just what exactly the TP is all about……I think I have found a plain, simple and very to the point explanation of what the TP is……..whatcha think?
I know you think that you will make a better country with your ideas……personally I think you are nutz!
What started as an alternative to the 2 parties has since been hijacked by the batcrap crazies….more humorous than thought provoking.
I have been a very vocal opponent of the GOP…..not because of ideology but rather that they are a biggest pack of idiots imaginable.
And over the years I have made fun of this group merciless. They make it so easy by using mental midgets as spokespeople….Trump, Perry, Huckabee, Jindal and the list goes on and on……
The 2016 election is heating up and as predicted the douches are coming out of the woodwork for their minutes of fame in front of the camera…….the first one in this cycle is Ben Carson…..although he is not a candidate yet….he will not stop talking….and most every time they, the GOP, has to spend days if not weeks trying to tamp down his mindless worthless comments……
His newest mindless ramble has me chuckling heavily and glad that I am looking forward to the lunacy that is the GOP candidate field…..but what did he say?
Likely GOP presidential candidate Ben Carson appeared on the American Family Association’s radio network today to promote his book, “You Have a Brain: A Teen’s Guide to Think Big.”
“We live in a culture of heavy indoctrination, it starts in preschool and people try to influence the way people think about things,” Carson told host Ed Vitagliano. “I think it was Stalin who said, ‘Give me the children for a few years and I will have them for life.’ And the point being that it is relatively easy at that inflexion point to indoctrinate people and to change their way of thinking for the rest of their lives.”
GOD I love these people! Since 2008 the Right has been so concerned with indoctrination….they see it everywhere…..that is every where but where it actually resides…..where would that be?
Preschool? Seriously? What the Hell do you Think Sunday School is all about? Here is a hint……… indoctrination!.
Sadly they cannot see past the fecal matter in their mouths.
This hilarious cartoon came to me on Twitter…I always get some great stuff from that slice of social media…….
It appears to be accurate…at least to me…..thoughts?
Oh there is MORE!
For a couple of weeks there has been a battle going on in the media…….the Right, especially the Tea Party folks, have been up in arms about Brian Williams lies and then when Bill O’Reilly has been shown to be a worse liar they jump to his defense…..why is that? A lie is a lie…no matter who tells it..
I despise anyone who tells a lie about combat….makes No difference if he/she is an icon or not…….crap like that dishonors the combat vets that faced that adversity….
I want someone to explain to me what is the difference between the lies of Brian and the lies of Bill……the American Conservative has shown me that they are truly an independent …..they have an excellent piece about Bill and his lies…….

Since the starting gun for the “Silly Season” has been fired….I will take that and run with it…….let the ignorance begin.
First let me say….and I will probably get some grief from the conservs that will support him, in the last couple of election cycles the GOP has been trotting out black candidates with the hope to dis-spell the dialog that they are losing ALL support in the African-American communities……remember Herman Cain?
For the 2016 season they will trot out Ben Carson as a viable candidate just as they did with Cain…..and like Cain he will be nothing but a diversion to keep the media busy typing their asses off…..
Carson is a doctor of some sort and one would think that he would be a bit more knowledgeable on affairs…….anyway he is forming an exploratory committee about the viability of his candidacy…….the first step to a run……
Like Cain he wasted NO time coming out of the gate with moronic statements……….
After announcing the formation of an exploratory committee for his likely presidential campaign, Ben Carson appeared on CNN’s “New Day” this morning, where he outlined his view that homosexuality is “absolutely” a choice.
“A lot of people who go into prison go into prison straight and when they come out, they’re gay,” Carson said. “Did something happen while they were in there? Ask yourself that question.”
As Carson sees it, gay people are trying “to impose their lifestyle on everyone else,” and it is up to Carson to speak up against them. In a 2013 interview with Sean Hannity of Fox News, he even went so far as to group gay people with people who want to have sex with children and animals.
Please read more….and then tell me this is a person that you would want representing the country…….
I am guessing that he also thinks that a woman that is raped was done so because of the clothes she wore……
He is NOT a viable candidate and he will be devoured in any debates that he may choose to enter……a vote for him will be a vote for ignorance and stupidity. PERIOD!
