I Told You So!

See!  I told you this was going to be entertaining.  We've got Ben Carson saying all kinds of crazy assed ridiculous bullshit and it's getting covered by the national media, Donald "duck" Trump has been a mega center ring act, we've got Jeb! on the sidelines playing the sad sack Emmett Kelley clown routine and a dozen or so others blowing the doors off of all the liars and theives I can ever remember on the political landscape.  What more could we ask for in entertainment.

Oh fuck.  This isn't supposed to be entertainment.  This is supposed to be about serious people coming up with serious solutions to our serious problems.

Sorry, my bad.

SH out.

Jeb! 2016. Oh this is going to be fun to watch.

So I get this message in my IN BOX from the Jeb Bush campaign and I think, I hope we have a republican candidate who is going to lay out his plan and just tell us what he is going to do for America.  Afterall, the last republican to run for president ran an entire campaign based upon attacking the other candidate and never gave the electorate any substantial information on what exactly he'd do as president (and still he got a large percentage of the vote).
So I read the entire e-mail.  Nope, nothing there.  Just a big plea for money (have the Bushes gone broke?)  Take a look for yourself.

President Obama has failed us. Hillary Clinton would fail us. We cannot afford another four years of the same failed policies. That’s why I announced yesterday that I’m running for President. That’s why I need your support right now.

Under their watch, the economic recovery has been the slowest ever, debt has ballooned, and the American dream has been put out of reach for millions of families.

America deserves better. You deserve better, and I think you know it.  If you’re ready for something better, I want you with me today: make a donation right now and, be part of the team that will put America back on the right track.

I won’t pretend that the challenges ahead aren’t daunting. They are. But the stakes are high, and I know that if we give it everything we can, we will not fail.

Together, we will expand opportunity for all, put government on the side of free enterprise and free people, and bring back American exceptionalism and leadership across the globe.

This won’t be easy. A campaign’s not supposed to be.

But I am ready for this challenge. I hope you will stand with me on Day One and chip in $100, $50, or $25 today.

The simple truth is this: the Democrats have offered a progressive agenda these past six years that includes everything but progress. You and I know these past six years do not represent America’s best—that’s why I’m running. Our country is on a very bad course. We can’t sit by and let this amazing nation be mismanaged and misled for another minute, much less another 4 years.

This campaign is about a new beginning. We launched a campaign to revive America and bring conservative leadership back to the White House.

In this moment, I am focused on all the opportunities our society can extend to every American.

I am focused on all the dreams that this country can make reality.

I am focused on all the parents who will hand a life better than their own to their children because of what we will do together.

I hope you’ll stand with me and make all of this possible:

I make you the promise here and now that I will campaign as I would serve: I will go everywhere, speak to everyone, keep my word, face the tough issues without flinching, and stay true to what I believe.

I will take nothing, and no one for granted. I will run with heart, and together, we will win.

It begins now.

I’m Jeb Bush, and I’m asking for your support today:

So I go to the web site.  There's a big todo about having a Mexican wife. . . sorry, not much else.  No policy to be found anywhere.

And this guy is one of the front runners?!
I have one question:  How in the fuck can anyone say they are going to vote for someone who doesn't tell you what they will do in the office they are seeking.  WTF?!  Where I'm from we call thst "buying a pig in a poke" (a poke is a paper bag).  You don't know what the fuck you're getting but you go ahead and buy it anyway because youre stupid.
 Republicans have been running these campaigns based upon nothing but attacking the current president for eight years now.  They haven't won, but they've come close.  All I can figure is that those 45-48% republican voters are a bunch of dumb fucking ignorant bozos!
Well, the rpeublican circus train has left the station and we might as well watch and be entertained.

Random notes, or Things that will get my attention if I ever return to blogging.

Random notes:

In the past few days I've seen lots of post from people about honoring those who have served and those who never came back.
Spare me your cheap grace.
Veterans benefits have been systematically reduced over the past few years. Congress has done little or nothing to help the tens of thousands of veterans who have come back with all sorts of physical and mental conditions. Veterans are dying because they can't get the healthcare they need. Over 100,000 veterans deal with homelessness and addiction without any help.
How can we have homeless veterans in this country when there is vacant housing all over the place?
Do something about that. Vote against politicians who vote against veterans. Make this a topic of discussion in political forums and when talking to your representatives. Demand change.
Sure, it's great to honor veterans, but that does NOTHING for the homeless, addicted, sick and hungry veterans who live in this country.
It is THE national shame.

Racism is alive and obvious.  Those who claim otherwise are fucking morons. . . and probably racist pricks.

Only unions will save the working and middle class.  Only voters will save unions when they decide to quit giving all our resources to the ultra rich and guzzling the lies the corporatists force down their throats.

The homophobes are going to go down in history the same as the southern bigots of the 50s and 60s.

Fuck you and your confederate flag.  Go fly your symbol of racism, slavery and treason somewhere else, you backwoods ignorant POS.

Help those who need help.

Blow me, I'm not Irish

. . . so I probably don't have some skanky green stuff growing from my testicles. That happens ya know to idiots who spend all their free time sitting on bar stools singing stupid tribal songs and partaking in alcoholic drinking.

What the fuck gives with these potato eating corned beef gobbling fucktards? I mean, who the fuck cares if you're Irish? Nobody but your fellow drunken mick buddies. We all know why you dress in green. . . to camouflage the puke you get all over yourself when you drink yourself sick like the white trash slobs that you are.

So now we have to tolerate that once per year drink fest where every light weight weenie old enough to buy a drink goes out claiming to be Irish and getting shit faced. Another amature night on the town, but this time with green beer and donuts.

So who was this "St. Patrick" besides some Irish mackerel snapper? This guy has been around for hundreds of years. Irishmen and their freckled skank hos all over the world worship this mick patron once every year. Guess what, his only claim to fame is that he "drove the snakes out of Ireland. Oh good, is that why Ireland is a rat infested shit hole? There were probably never any snakes in Ireland, hence the assumption that it was always a rat infested shit hole, but St. Patrick was a typically drunken Irish sot who thought he saw snakes and you know how easily talked into anything Irishmen are. . . at least, I assume they're the same as those speckled Irish women.

And what's with all you neo-Irish-American yuppies naming your kids dumbass shit like Seamus, Caleb and Connor? Yea, sounds like a good idea when you're 25, et up with yourself and drinking every night at the corner Irish shit hole for your social fix, but remember, this kid is someday going to have to deal with real people in the real world and when he says in his NY or Atlanta accent, "hi my name is Liam," people are going to crack up spontaneously in their face. Do you want your kid humiliated on a daily basis throughout his life?

So all you Irish wankers; STFU! Assimilate for god's sake. It's been over 100 years since your pitiful starving potato eating ancestors crawled ashore in North America begging for a mouthful of anything. Get over yourselves. You got nuthin.

Oh, and here's a good one. The Amurkin Irish want to make St. Patrick's Day a national holiday. I don't think so, morons. You gotta come up with someone better than a hallucinagenic drunken Irishman before you get a national holiday. You want to put some mythological snake charmer up there with Lincoln, Washington and King? Uh huh. Like that's gonna happen.

What else do you have to offer? Irish food? BWAAAAAAAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!! On that basis, India, Thailand, China, Mexico, Japan, about anywhere else but Ireland has a better chance of getting a national holiday in the USA. Go stew ya up some meat and potatoes.

Maybe an inspiring liberation movement would convince us there is some merit in an Irish national holiday. HAR! Nope, the Irish simply killed a whole bunch of their fellow citizens over a period of a decade or so and then caved back in to British dominance. And we thought the IRA was such a bunch of toughies.

It's bad enough that every year around March 17th, everything turns puke green. I think we'll pass on any further adoration of a useless excersise in self abuse and ignorance.

Happy St. Patrick Day. Come on by and I'll give you a kiss for being Irish.

Same Old Song and Dance

Hey, remember we elected the GenX liberal dude who had all that Hope and Change up his sleeve?  Man he sure sounded good, looked good and made a shit load of promises.  I believed him.  Hell yea.  How could you not?
When was that?  2008?  WTF happened?  We're still occupying other countries and our soldiers are still killing and being killed.  We spent hundreds of billions on corporate welfare in the biggest corporate give-away in the history of the world.  Did anyone ever sit down and figure out how much of all that went into the pockets of the ultra rich?  Naw, I guess we didn't really have to.  It wouldn't be broadcast anyway.  I'm sure it wouldn't interest, anybody, outside of a small circle of friends.
Meqnwhile there is this big push to cut the measly benefits to the poor and keep our antiquated and expensive healthcare system that only serves the privileged.

Dadadaaaaa dadadaa
Dadadaaaaa dadadaa
Meet the new boss
Same as the old boss
Da da da da dadadaaaaaaaa

It's the same old story, just a different decade with different players from a different generation.

Back and forth, back and forth.

The problem is that the old adage "the rich get richer and the poor get poorer" is very real now and it's killing us.  These motherfuckers are truly hoarding the monetary resources of our nation.
I recently read that the Walton family who own Wal-Mart have as much money as the bottom 40% of the population.  Whaaaaaa?  A single handful of family members who own a single company have more money that 40% of the entire population?!?!

Consider this:
The top 1% earned 20% of the total income in the nation in 2012.
Worse than that:
Since 2009, the top 1% received 95% of all income gains.

What kind of wimpy lemming types are we to allow that to happen?
Why isn't there fighting in the streets?
Why aren't we defending our children's futures?
What exactly are our moral values that we would allow these elitist arrogant fucks to fuck us over like this?

New material, same old motivation level

So much new good material.  I should probably come back to this again.

Why I Never Post These Days

Gee it's kinda boring making political statements when your party is in control and the other party is doing such a good job of self destructing.
