There’s uneducated; there’s stupid; there’s pig-ignorant … and then there’s Louie Gohmert

May 6, 2014

Usually, someone has to make an extraordinary ass of themselves for me to single them out for a truth attack (that’s what I call it when I use their own words and actions to make my case against them).  In the case of Texas Republican Congressman and certified 100-percent Grade-A asshat Louie Gohmert, that attack […]

The Corporate Fellatio Continues: Congress sets to make tax loopholes permanent

May 5, 2014

1

Republicans in the House are getting ready to grease the skids to make a series of tax breaks and loopholes permanent that only benefit the super-wealthy and their corporations they own. They don’t intend to offset them by closing other loopholes or raising rates; no sensible cost-cutting; none of the “dollar-for-dollar” demands they put into […]

Fox News & the GOPTEA: Cliven who?

April 27, 2014

1

Now who could have possibly seen this one coming? Who could have foreseen that a man who claimed on a live Fox News interview that the Obama administration created a “blood moon” as part of some vast left-wing conspiracy just so it could conduct a secret, covert, kill-order night raid against him personally … just […]

Obama’s Senate super-majority: Fiction at its finest

January 5, 2014

0

To all my Republican friends, those of you who are faulting Barack Obama and Democrats for “doing nothing while they had a super-majority for two years,” I’d like to present you with something called “facts.” I know this concept is alien to you, but try to follow along as best you can. A “super-majority” occurs […]

National Sales Tax: Not *the* solution, but *a* solution

March 1, 2013

2

It’s safe to say that the current United States tax code – all 84,319 pages of it – is almost as popular among the vast majority of Americans as the science teacher who gives a pop quiz, a test and seven hours of homework on a Friday. America has what is arguably the world’s most […]

News round-up nursery rhymes

Kick, kick, kick the can, always down the road. Never solve a single thing, just whine and blame and goad. http://www.cbsnews.com/8301-34222_162-57564747-10391739/house-gop-to-seek-three-month-debt-limit-hike Old Fibber Cantor sat in a chair. While the country waited for answers all day. When the debt deal came calling and while Boehner was bawling, Fibber Cantor said “No budget, no pay.” http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2013/01/18/eric-cantor-debt-ceiling_n_2505001.html […]

The Great Obama ‘All White Male Cabinet’ Conspiracy

January 10, 2013

4

SO … today’s outrage du jour among the screeching Republican bobblehead rank-and-file is that President Barack Obama is loading his cabinet with all white men, and violating his promises of diversity. They complaining that he isn’t appointing women. They’re complaining that he isn’t appointing minorities. They’re complaining that he isn’t appointing the disabled. And, of […]

The edge of the fiscal cliff; with nowhere to go but up

December 18, 2012

0

It fascinates me to watch (often reluctantly) the endless parroting of Republican sound bites, talking points and blanket statements about the “dangers” of the fiscal cliff. One should not that the same partisan pundits who are bashing the President for having a bad plan are the same malcontents who spent the last year dutifully passing […]

Let’s talk about Romney’s record as Governor

October 16, 2012

4

After nine months of desperately trying to get anyone to talk about anything other than his record as Governor of Massachusetts, suddenly Mitt Romney wants to brag about what a fantastic job he did, and why that experience makes him more qualified for the presidency than Barack Obama. Fine, Mitt.  Let’s look at some of […]

F.A.C.T.S.; The Republican Acronym

October 12, 2012

0

The Republican definition of “facts” is that it’s an acronym: GOP House of Representatives F.A.C.T.S. = Fictitious Allegations, Contrived Theories and Spin GOP Senate F.A.C.T.S. = Farcical Antics, Conspiratorial Theater, and Spin Romney F.A.C.T.S. = False Attempts to Convince TEAbaggers of Sincerity Ryan F.A.C.T.S. = Falsify Anything to Create a Theocratic System
