I wish I could just let some things go……my daughter tells me that I will live longer if I ignore the stupid……but unfortunately for me….I cannot!
This post is yet another anal statement made by an elected official……as a bit of a history geek I find it offensive when someone that is in a leadership position has NO grasp of history and of the idiocy they spread…………
Today’s entry into the running for the most anal statement was made by the media’s love child,….New Jersey’s governor Chris Christie……in a recent speech he made a really stupid statement and deserves all the notoriety that I can heap onto him….
Christie said: “The fact of the matter is, I think people would have been happy to have a referendum on civil rights rather than fighting and dying in the streets in the South.”
This is the rest of the quote: “It was our political institutions that were holding things back. I don’t think there’s anything necessarily so special about this particular issue that it must be handled by a Legislature. Why would that be?…I don’t understand how anybody could argue with letting the people decide this issue.”
Either Christie did not pay attention in history class or he is too young to remember what the Civil Rights struggle was all about……does he NOT realize that black people could not vote effectively in the South….in the 1960’s he really thinks that white segregationist Southerns would have voted in favor of civil rights?
This is the mindless dribble that takes our system of government to the pinnacle of stupidity!
You can’t fix stupid!
Today is the Penis Primary (look at Florida on a map…then tell me what it looks like)……And before the first vote is cast the MSM has proclaimed Mitt the winner….since you do not have to watch the returns maybe you would like to read this…..
Recently I wrote a post, Why Are Repubs Angry, where I asked the question that the media keeps pushing on the unsuspecting viewer……and I finally got to ask a long time conserv in my area….I have what I think is the real reason but I wanted to hear from someone that will vote GOP regardless of who is nominated….a person that thinks that the election is about beating Obama and NOTHING else…
It cannot be Obamacare for it has not been totally implemented….cannot be the spending or they would have really pitched a bitch with Bush….maybe it is the bailouts, but wait! Bush did it too and it saved us or so they would have us believe….then just what is it?
So I put my question to her….Why are Repubs angry?—–and boy was I surprised….it wasn’t Obama-care, or the bailouts or the fake issue of pushing class warfare……they said it was Obama’s use of “czars” and Obama’s circumvention of the Congress on his nominees…
At first I was flabbergasted…..I am sure I stood there with my mouth open looking like a deer in the headlights….it took me a minute to get my brain back in gear…..
First I had to point out the obvious….the term “czar” is employed in media and popular usage to refer to high-level officials who oversee a particular policy. There have never been any U.S. government offices with the title “czar”, but various governmental officials have sometimes been referred to by the nickname “czar” rather than their actual title.
Some people refer to those people not confirmed by Congress as czars….and that brings us to the part about the circumvention of Congress…….if that is the biggest bitch then I need to point that EVERY President since FDR has had “czars”. GW Bush had 28 czars….Obama has had 33….. were they just as pissed at Bush? (that is a rhetorical question for we know the answer)……..even the God of the GOP, Ronald Reagan had a czar….it was a drug czar named Carlton Turner…….
So I point out…..that to be angry about the circumvention has got to be about all circumvention…..with that said…I stand by my original conclusion…..the Repubs are so angry because there is a black man in the White House….and no amount of trying to justify any other way is just a lie and a cover up for the real reason for the anger…..
