Yes, Irene they are still talking and they are still showing the world they have NO grasp on reality……….edition 8 comes to life…..I wish that I could write that anal, moronic and ignorant statements have fallen by the wayside….I wish I could….but sorry NO such luck……#1 I did an entire post on it…but damn! It was too anal to NOT include it in B3……..
1–I would like to begin this edition with something that is at the forefront of politics, at least for this month….income equality…..we have heard all the people talking about how hard it is to live on minimum wage……and we have heard all the people that oppose any increase in that wage……but I thought I had heard it all….that is until I read what this pee brain had to say……..
Democrat James Moran of Virginia says he and his fellow representatives in Congress are in dire need of a raise. “I think the American people should know that the members of Congress are underpaid,” Moran tells Roll Call. “I understand that it’s widely felt that they underperform, but the fact is that this is the board of directors for the largest economic entity in the world.” Moran noted that some members live out of their offices to avoid DC’s steep prices, even on salaries of $174,000.
“Our pay has been frozen for three years and we’re planning on freezing it a fourth year,” he says. “A lot of members can’t even afford to live decently in Washington.” He plans to introduce an amendment to remedy the problem, reports the Washington Post, but acknowledges it doesn’t have much of a chance.
Let see….they cannot exist on their pay…..but minimum wage earners can?
Wait! You only work 126 days a year and you think you need a raise? Do what you are always telling the working poor….get a 2nd job…..
What a pretentious ass!
2–The Heritage Foundation, a once “respected” conservative think tank has now become a think tank of the Looney Right crows…….as illustrated by its leader, Jim DeMint……..
Heritage Foundation head Jim DeMint appeared on Vocal Point with Jerry Newcombe of Truth In Action Ministries last week, where he insisted that “no liberal is going to win a debate that big government freed the slaves.”
DeMint, a former US senator from South Carolina, told Newcombe that “the conscience of the American people” and not the federal government was responsible for the end of slavery.
In the interview, DeMint seemed to confuse the US Constitution with the Declaration of Independence and implied that William Wilberforce, a British politician who died almost thirty years before the Civil War, did more to end American slavery than the federal government.
This ius what is happening to the Right….they let MORONS do their thinking…….I lose all respect for anyone that does not know history especially those in position to influence others……
3–Then we have these religious dipshits that are just too stupid for words…..one Klingenschmitt is just one of these religious morons……..
On his “Pray In Jesus Name” program today, “Dr. Chaps” Gordon Klingenschmitt quizzed his viewers on when life begins.
Does it begin, he asked, when a heartbeat can be detected? Or perhaps somewhere around 22-24 weeks when a fetus is able to survive outside of the womb? Or maybe it begins at the moment of conception?
But it was a trick question, Klingenschmitt revealed, and all of those answers were wrong because life actually begins before conception “in the mind and heart of God”:
People like this toad makes me think a resurgence of the ignorance of the Dark Ages is making a return.
4–This is not necessarily an anal statement……but Rupert Murdoch speaks truth……..
Responding to a question over whether he believes Fox News’ radicalizing effect on the GOP has ultimately harmed America’s leading right-wing political party, Murdoch pushed back, saying, “I think it has absolutely saved it.”
“It has certainly given voice and hope to people who didn’t like all that liberal championing thrown at them on CNN,” Murdoch continued.
Yet old habits die hard. In the very same answer, Murdoch contests the interviewer’s implication that Fox News has been a champion of the Tea Party movement. “By the way, we don’t promote the Tea Party,” Murdoch said. “That’s bullshit. We recognize their existence.”
He has done more than anyone to re-brand the failing GOP…….
5–Once again there is a religious dude that has all the answers and they are in the Bible………
Gordon Klingenschmitt, the GOP politician and gay exorcist who believes that the Employment Non-Discrimination Act is a demonic plot to make Christians “starve to death” and “participate in sodomy,” yesterday pointed to 2011 OPM guidelines on transgender personnel as proof that “Obama has now gone to full perversion as a matter of policy.”
6–Some say the Bible is our divine guidance…..but this guy takes it a bit too far for my liking…………..
David Barton, an influential conservative activist who helped write the Republican Party’s 2012 platform, argues that the Bible opposes the minimum wage, unions and collective bargaining, estate taxes, capital gains taxes, and progressive taxation in general.
I am still waiting for the book and chapter references so that I may see these for myself………and just like in Casablanca….I wait….and wait…..and wait.
7–There are so many assholes but this guy is one of the biggest………an asshole from the American Family Association…….
Bryan Fischer is more than just a bigot. He can be offensive on many conservative topics, including income inequality. After discussing that the top 1% pay 30% of all federal taxes, Fischer told listeners that the poor ought to kiss the ground that the rich walk on:
the poor and middle class families in this country “ought to be kissing the ground on which [the rich] walk” because it is the top 1% that is paying for EBT cards and food stamps and federal housing.
The rich, Fischer asserted “ought to be given ticker tape parades once a week in all of our major cities to thank them for funding welfare for everybody”
So ends edition #8….onto #9……….
