Rick Perry's batshit crazy plan for America. . . with Sagacious commentary

1. Abolish lifetime tenure for federal judges by amending Article III, Section I of the Constitution.

The nation's framers established a federal court system whereby judges with "good behavior" would be secure in their job for life. Perry believes that provision is ready for an overhaul.

"The Judges," reads Article III, "both of the supreme and inferior Courts, shall hold their Offices during good Behavior, and shall, at stated Times, receive for their Services a Compensation which shall not be diminished during their Continuance in Office."

Perry makes it no secret that he believes the judges on the bench over the past century have acted beyond their constitutional bounds. The problem, Perry reasons, is that members of the judiciary are "unaccountable" to the people, and their lifetime tenure gives them free license to act however they want. In his book, the governor speaks highly of plans to limit their tenure and offers proposals about how to accomplish it.

"'[W]e should take steps to restrict the unlimited power of the courts to rule over us with no accountability," he writes in Fed Up! "There are a number of ideas about how to do this . . . . One such reform would be to institute term limits on what are now lifetime appointments for federal judges, particularly those on the Supreme Court or the circuit courts, which have so much power. One proposal, for example, would have judges roll off every two years based on seniority."

So Rick Perry knows better than our founding fathers. The fathers expected the judges to grow and develop a profound wisdom in their positions. They didn't expect them to become great jurists in six month and serve a two year term. They expected them to become truly great jurists over a long period of service which would be the culmination of a long judicial career. The founding father knew what they were doing and 230 years of experience has proven them right.

2. Congress should have the power to override Supreme Court decisions with a two-thirds vote.

Ending lifetime tenure for federal justices isn't the only way Perry has proposed suppressing the power of the courts. His book excoriates at length what he sees as overreach from the judicial branch. (The title of Chapter Six is "Nine Unelected Judges Tell Us How to Live.")

Giving Congress the ability to veto their decisions would be another way to take the Court down a notch, Perry says.

"[A]llow Congress to override the Supreme Court with a two-thirds vote in both the House and Senate, which risks increased politicization of judicial decisions, but also has the benefit of letting the people stop the Court from unilaterally deciding policy," he writes.

Everyone (except Rick Perry) learned in the 6th grade about our system of checks and balances. Each branch of gov't has limited power. Here Mr. Perry wants to give the legislature the power to make laws AND the ability to decide the constitutionality of those laws. Do we really want these elected yahoos to be deciding what is and isn't constitutional?
This is an insane idea and as far as I'm concerned goes against the very foundation of our country.

3. Scrap the federal income tax by repealing the Sixteenth Amendment.

The Sixteenth Amendment gives Congress the "power to lay and collect taxes on incomes, from whatever source derived, without apportionment among the several States, and without regard to any census or enumeration." It should be abolished immediately, Perry says.

Calling the Sixteenth Amendment "the great milestone on the road to serfdom," Perry's writes that it provides a virtually blank check to the federal government to use for projects with little or no consultation from the states.

And do what for revenue to run the gov't? Increase taxes on corporations? I suspect he's all for removing corporate taxes. This is simply ridiculous.

4. End the direct election of senators by repealing the Seventeenth Amendment.

Overturning this amendment would restore the original language of the Constitution, which gave state legislators the power to appoint the members of the Senate.

Ratified during the Progressive Era in 1913 , the same year as the Sixteenth Amendment, the Seventeenth Amendment gives citizens the ability to elect senators on their own. Perry writes that supporters of the amendment at the time were "mistakenly" propelled by "a fit of populist rage."

"The American people mistakenly empowered the federal government during a fit of populist rage in the early twentieth century by giving it an unlimited source of income (the Sixteenth Amendment) and by changing the way senators are elected (the Seventeenth Amendment)," he writes.

Wow, legislation without representation. Who would these new grand and elite senators be? The captains of industry? Religious leaders? Other agenda ladened extremists? Wow, this is amazing and thoroughly unAmerican.

5. Require the federal government to balance its budget every year.

Of all his proposed ideas, Perry calls this one "the most important," and of all the plans, a balanced budget amendment likely has the best chance of passage.

"The most important thing we could do is amend the Constitution--now--to restrict federal spending," Perry writes in his book. "There are generally thought to be two options: the traditional 'balanced budget amendment' or a straightforward 'spending limit amendment,' either of which would be a significant improvement. I prefer the latter . . . . Let's use the people's document--the Constitution--to put an actual spending limit in place to control the beast in Washington."

A campaign to pass a balanced budget amendment through Congress fell short by just one vote in the Senate in the 1990s.

Last year, House Republicans proposed a spending-limit amendment that would limit federal spending to 20 percent of the economy. According to the amendment's language, the restriction could be overridden by a two-thirds vote in both Houses of Congress or by a declaration of war.

So what happens when a huge natural disaster occurs such a what happened in Japan this spring? What if Yellowstone exploded. A horrible drought? War? How about just lean economic times when we need to be taking care of the citizenry?

This would effectively tie the gov't's hands behine their backs and is another example of what a whack job this guy is.

6. The federal Constitution should define marriage as between one man and one woman in all 50 states.

Despite saying last month that he was "fine with" states like New York allowing gay marriage, Perry has now said he supports a constitutional amendment that would permanently ban gay marriage throughout the country and overturn any state laws that define marriage beyond a relationship between one man and one woman.

"I do respect a state's right to have a different opinion and take a different tack if you will, California did that," Perry told the Christian Broadcasting Network in August. "I respect that right, but our founding fathers also said, 'Listen, if you all in the future think things are so important that you need to change the Constitution here's the way you do it'.

In an interview with The Ticket earlier this month, Perry spokeswoman Katherine Cesinger said that even though it would overturn laws in several states, the amendment still fits into Perry's broader philosophy because amendments require the ratification of three-fourths of the states to be added to the Constitution.

Fuck you, you bigoted, religious fundamentalist, fanatical prick. Nothing more to say about this.

7. Abortion should be made illegal throughout the country.

Like the gay marriage issue, Perry at one time believed that abortion policy should be left to the states, as was the case before the 1973 Supreme Court case Roe v. Wade. But in the same Christian Broadcasting Network interview, Perry said that he would support a federal amendment outlawing abortion because it was "so the soul of this country and to the traditional values [of] our founding fathers."

"the traditional values [of] our founding fathers" I know, and Rick Perry knows what god is thinking too and will be glad to tell you. This dumbfuck does not know a thing about history, technology and social conditions. I have no idea what this MonkeyBoy did in his previous life, but whatever it was I suspect he lived some weird cloistered existence submerged in religious fanaticism. How do batshit crazy fucktard buffoons like this get a seat on the stage of national affairs? I don't get it.

Now take a look at most of this pile of shit. It is designed to give more and more power to fewer and fewer people. Care to guess who those few people would be? I guarantee you it would be corporate interests with a sprinkling of religious fanaticism thrown in just to keep the populous in check.

I believe we need to make some serious changes in how we do business in this country, but this guy is seriously dangerous to the American way of life.

Will ya look at these morons? They all look like some sort of automitron robot. I mean my god how much more stiff and programmed could they look? Maybe if they all wore the same color tie instead of some with blue and others with red, and there is the black guy wearing a. . . YELLOW TIE?! WTF? I'm tellin it's all absurd. Even Bachman in the middle is dressed like some kinda foil encrusted Jetson's robotic house keeper. It's funny that they got into arguments cuause they all have the same lame assed teabagger ideas.
Thanks GOP. The entertainment value is going to be. . . well, maybe interesting or maybe really fucking boring.

News bits and Dumb shits

Perry says he doesn't believe in global warming AP - 1 hr 6 mins ago
GOP presidential candidate Rick Perry told New Hampshire voters Wednesday that he does not believe in manmade global warming, calling it a scientific theory that has not been proven.

This stupid fuck wouldn't know a scientific theory from religious dogma. He's simply ignorant. Is Texas going to give us another moronmonkeyboy? Just what we need, a fucking bozo who only believes in mythology.

Is Chris Christie preparing to run for president in 2012?
By Chris Moody | The Ticket
New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie has repeatedly denied that he intends to run for president in 2012, but according to Bloomberg View columnist Jonathan Alter, he is taking some early steps toward joining the race.
"My sources say NJ Gov. Chris Christie is conducting focus groups in preparation for a possible run for president in 2012," Alter wrote on Twitter just before 12:30 p.m. Eastern time on Wednesday.

This guy is a fat assed buffoon, but at least he's entertaining. It would sorta be like seeing Tony Soprano and Robt DeNero running for president. But lets face it, Amerrykkkins like a subdued candidate with a little bit of a calm demeanor, so he wouldn't have a chance. Afterall, would you want this thug with his finger on the button?

New fighter jet to bolster Russian air force
August 17th, 2011
11:44 AM ET

Russia's new stealth fighter jet made its public debut Tuesday, according to state-run news source RIA Novosti.

The Sukhoi T-50, developed collaboratively by Russia and India, appeared at the MAKS 2011 air show in Zhukovsky, outside Moscow. . . .

The article from the state-run media source says the Sukhoi T-50 cost the two governments about $6 billion to develop, with India shouldering about 35% of the cost. It is intended to match the U.S. F-22 raptor.

These guys have been reverse engineering American airplanes since after WWII when they built an exact replica of the B-29.

Atheists, Muslims More Popular Than Tea Party (Also, Tea Party's Just a New Name for Racist Christian Right)

Is the media's romance with the Tea Party finally going to be ended by cold, hard facts?

The results of a comprehensive New York Times polling project (document link here) offer some good news to that end. The results show that public opinion is trending away from Tea. They also dispel some big myths about the Tea Party being economic in nature rather than what it actually is: a re-branded, repurposed version of the same old Christian Right. This may seem familiar to AlterNet readers--but still, it's good to have the numbers and the mainstream attention to highlight such a crucial truth.

Here's the juiciest nugget from professors David E. Campbell and Robert D. Putnam in the Times, one which encapsulates the Tea Party's growing unpopularity with a vivid comparison or two (emphases mine):

Of course, politicians of all stripes are not faring well among the public these days. But in data we have recently collected, the Tea Party ranks lower than any of the 23 other groups we asked about — lower than both Republicans and Democrats. It is even less popular than much maligned groups like “atheists” and “Muslims.” Interestingly, one group that approaches it in unpopularity is the Christian Right.

Alex Seitz-Wald at Think Progress, highlighting the above results, also notes that these unpopularity numbers for the Tea Party have skyrocketed over the past year or so.

Amerrykkkins love a good freak show, so I don't expect the media attention to the teabaggers to diminish much for the next year or so. In fact, they will probably egg them on with lots of opportunity to express their views.

Thank you Mr. Marshall McLuhan for predicting oh so accurately that "the media is the message." We have acheived a pure version of your prediction.
Fuck you Amerrykkka for tolerating it and sitting back in the 70s and 80s and letting it happen.

Bachmann: I'll bring back $2 gas
By: CNNMoney Staff Reporter Charles Riley
NEW YORK (CNNMoney) - President Michele Bachmann has a promise: $2 gas.
"Under President Bachmann you will see gasoline come down below $2 a gallon again," Bachmann told a crowd Tuesday in South Carolina. "That will happen."

Wow, 'Pie in the sky hopes!' Next we'll be getting a chicken in every pot.
What a total fucktard. Ya gotta wonder about those chosen few who actually gave a vote to this moron in Ames Iowa. Did she give them all blow jobs? How about those folks in Minnesota who keep voting for her.

Hitler Mustache Spray Painted On Mural Of Ronald Reagan
By Chris Cannon

COOKEVILLE, Tenn. - Overnight Sunday someone spray painted Hitler's infamous mustache onto the face of Ronald Reagan. The damaged mural covers a wall at the Putnam County Republican Party headquarters in downtown Cookeville.

I don't really like the desecration of private property by hooligans, but this I kinda gotta love. Every time I see that fake smile and think about the years of lies, bullshit and treason we had to endure under the Reagan regime I want to desecrate something.

Racist fuckwads

"It has been the most anti-business administration in my lifetime... and everything he has come up with centralizes more power in Washington, creates more socialist-style, collectivist policies. This president is doing something that's so far out of the realm of anything Republicans ever did wrong, it's hard to even imagine." - Sen. Jim DeMint (R-SC)

Hey you dumb fuck bozo. Where were you when MoronMonkeyBoy Bush the Chimp was ram rodding through the "patriot act." where were you when every dept in the fed gov't dealing with citizen security was bunched together under one roof and called "homeland security?"
Why don't you teabagging mother fuckers just shut the fuck up. You're lying fucking racist pricks and anyone with the slightest bit of sense knows it. Unfortunately you bottom feeding pieces of shit cater to those who don't have a lick of sense or a functioning brain. It's amazing, but I thought the David Dukes of the world were fading into oblivion, but here you are alive and well and spreading your racist hate everywhere you go and getting a national forum to do it within.
What a fucked up mess.

Incredible crazies!

Holy bat shit Robin! The GOP has done got themselves a bevy of certifiably insane bat shit crazy candidates. . .

Mitt Romney: This fucking whack job believes that if he wears special underwear that are built similar to my great grandfather's long johns, and if his wife wears similar attire at ALL TIMES, they will be ready get on aboard the love train to heaven when their lord and savior Jesussa come down to pluck them from the horrors of Earthly existence.

Michelle Bachman: This nut case from Minnesota by way of Iowa needs little introduction. She has been exhibiting how ignorant she is for the past couple years. Whether it's American history or constitutional law, this moron has displayed the intellect of a 3rd grader with almost every step she takes and every time she opens her mouth. Ad to that the fact that she's a born agin believer whose husband runs a mental health clinic that claims to be able to cure people of the sin of homosexuality. . .

Rick Perry: Wow, this newest entry into the mix just held a 30,000 strong prayer meeting. He's telling his fellow believers that if they pray real hard, he will be elected and will do god's will.

Sarah Palin: nuff said.

See, these mother fuckers are fucking nuts. They are just about as insane a gaggle of douche bags as has ever been involved in national politics.
I believe Obama could fuck up by the numbers for the next 15 months and still wipe the floor with any of these nut cases.

Corruption supreme!!

U.S. district attorney in charge of News Corp. probe is ‘best friends’ with Murdoch point-man leading internal investigation
By Joe Pompeo | The Cutline –
From the department of conflicts of interest: Viet Dinh, the attorney and News Corporation board member overseeing an internal investigation into illegal activities within the embattled company, is reportedly best friends with Preet Bharara, the attorney leading the U.S. investigation into the same matter.
Time's Massimo Calabresi has the scoop:
Dinh and Bharara met their first week of freshman year at Harvard when they landed in a seminar together. "The topic of the day was whether the framers of the Constitution conceived man as good or evil," Dinh told me in 2007 when I interviewed him for a profile of Bharara, who was then leading the Senate investigation into the firing of U.S. attorneys by Bush administration political figures. "We ended up debating and arguing through the night until we went to breakfast and argued some more and then went to lunch," Dinh said.
From there they became good friends. Bharara was best man at Dinh's wedding. Professionally, they went to opposite parties but have stayed close. "He's been my best friend through Whitewater and through impeachment and through the USA Patriot Act, and God knows what kind of hurt he took from his Democratic friends," Dinh said in my interview with him, praising Bharara even as he took the lead on the U.S. Attorneys investigation. "So I'm glad there's a little bit of payback time now," Dinh said.

Welcome to justice Amerrykkkin style 2011. This is so absurd compared to how one would like to think that things work in Amerrykkka. How in the fuck are we supposed to believe in our gov't with total shit piles like this occurring? How are we to have any faith in the justice system in this country when the US Attorney's office has got the back of NewsCorp during an insanely scandalous investigation?

"When in the Course of human events it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the political bands which have connected them with another and to assume among the powers of the earth, the separate and equal station to which the Laws of Nature and of Nature's God entitle them, a decent respect to the opinions of mankind requires that they should declare the causes which impel them to the separation.
Thomas Jefferson
American Declaration of Independence

Is it time to dissolve the political bands between the people and gov't in this country?

Injustice in AmerryKKKa

If someone from the administration doesn't step in and stop this travesty of justice, I've had it with Obama. I'm tired of the half measures, the half hearted defense of civil rights, and the cowtowing to the teabaggers and radical republicans.

S.F. gay married couple loses immigration battle
Carolyn Lochhead, Chronicle Washington Bureau
Tuesday, August 9, 2011
Noah Berger / Special to The Chronicle

Washington --

Citing the Defense of Marriage Act, the Obama administration denied immigration benefits to a married gay couple from San Francisco and ordered the expulsion of a man who is the primary caregiver to his AIDS-afflicted spouse.

Bradford Wells, a U.S. citizen, and Anthony John Makk, a citizen of Australia, were married seven years ago in Massachusetts. They have lived together 19 years, mostly in an apartment in the Castro district. The U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services denied Makk's application to be considered for permanent residency as a spouse of an American citizen, citing the 1996 law that denies all federal benefits to same-sex couples.

This weeks it's "boy"

Buchanan: Didn't intend to slur Obama with quip
AP –
NEW YORK (AP) — Pat Buchanan says he didn't mean to slur President Barack Obama by referring to him as "your boy" during a discussion with Al Sharpton.
The former GOP presidential candidate and current MSNBC analyst appeared on "Morning Joe" Wednesday to explain remarks he made on that network's Sharpton show 12 hours earlier. Buchanan was discussing Obama's political strength with Sharpton when he referred to Obama as "your boy."
Sharpton responded: "My what? My president, Barack Obama? What did you say?"
Buchanan said Wednesday that he was using a boxing analogy. "Some folks took what I said as some kind of a slur," Buchanan said. "None was meant, none was intended, none was delivered."

Of course they always say "I didn't mean anything by it." And then there is the veiled insult of an apology "some people might take it wrong." And we all know who those "some people" might be.

I'm getting so fucking tired of the vile hate speech in this country. You go to a teabagger rally and they hold it up on signs. In the main steam, they're a little more subtle about it, but all too often, prick faced mother fuckers like Pat Buchanon slip up and throw in a zinger. Do they forget they're on? Do they not realize that this is going beyond their little circle of redneck racist scum sucking friends?

Look here Buchanan, you shit eating toxin spewing worm, you aint fucking stupid. you know gaddamn fucking well that calling a black man "boy" in any context is a bad idea, but you just had to throw in that little diminutive. You figured you might be able to get by with it didn't you? And if not, you could offer up a sleazy little fabrication of an expanation and get away with it.

Well congratulations you belly crawling piece of shit! The main stream media seems to be ignoring not only your vile comment but the even more vile comment of your fellow racist shit eater Rep. Doug Lamborn (R-Co) who called the President of the United States a "tar baby" last week.

Yes, it looks like racial slurs are going mainstream these day Amurkkka! Anybody can pretty much say anything and get away with it. Come on step up you right wing he-men! Who will be the first of you to just man up and call him "the N word?"
I can hear it now "Oh, I didn't mean anything by it, but I hear that some people might find my comment offensive. We use that term all the time where I'm from. In fact, theycall themselves that."

America, your president is being called vile obscene and racist names by other citizens who represent political parties and the press. Why is there not loud and profound righteous indignation in the press and in the streets? Where is the public outrage?

Oh America, where have you gone?

Is it just me. . .

. . . or are other people tired of looking at and hearing from this dumb backwoods turtle faced penis headed mother fucker?

Rep. Lamborn likens Obama to a "tar baby"

"Tar Baby" -- from time to time, this ugly racially charged phrase has come up in our political discourse. Most often, the term is applied to a situation or a thing. John McCain, for example, used it to describe divorces. Likewise, Mitt Romney used it to describe the Big Dig. In both instances, the Republican leaders apologized for using such a loaded word -- even though they hadn't used it to describe an actual person.

The same cannot be said for Representative Doug Lamborn (R-CO), who used the term to describe President Obama in a statewide radio interview on Friday. You can listen to that interview here, which we examined on my KKZN-AM760 radio show this morning. Here's the key excerpt:

LAMBORN: Even if some people say "well, the Republicans should have done this, or should have done that," they will hold the President responsible. Now, I don't even want to be associated with him, it's like touching a, a tar baby and you get know you're stuck and you're part of the problem and you can't get away.

It has been questioned whether the term "tar baby" is always a racist term. In 2006, Ta-Nehisi Coates explored this issue in Time magazine. "Is tar baby a racist term?" he asked. "Like most elements of language, that depends on context. Calling the Big Dig a tar baby is a lot different than calling a person one." In this case, that context is quite clear.

This, of course, doesn't absolve McCain and Romney, who plead ignorance to the term's racial implications and then promptly apologized. But it is to say that in Lamborn's case, the ignorance plea would be absurd because he explicitly used the term to describe a black person.

Tellingly, this openly derogatory epithet comes from not just any old politician. Lamborn is a United States congressman from Colorado Springs -- one of the most conservative Tea-Party-loving districts in America. In the hard-core right-wing political circles he runs in, describing a black person as a "tar baby" is probably more than acceptable -- it may even be celebrated, especially when aimed at a political opponent like President Obama.

Holy fucking shit!? Is this dumb fuck moron for real or did some leftist propaganda machine make this shit up? What kind of human being would make such a statement in this day and age? On top of it, he writes a letter to the president that is so shallow and pseudo apologetic it's pitiful:

He said he “apologized for using a term some find insensitive,” Hey scumbag! Most find it horrendous. Almost all would find it offensive except for a tiny percentage of extreme backwoods teabagging butt fucking assholes like you.

Then he said that he meant to use the term to indicate a "Quagmire" and he was sorry he didn't use the term "quagmire" instead. Listen up you inbred dickwad, you used the term "tar baby." You called the President of the United States of america, who is a black man a "tar baby." You referred to not wanting to touch the President of the United States, who is a black man, because it would be like touching a "tar baby." You are vile racist piece of shit. Nothing more and nothing less.

This isn't like bubba down the road saying something ignorant and stupid like "that tar baby in Warshinton." This is a member of the United States House of Representatives making public commentary. This is the voice of someone whose constituency judges and guages as a norm. This is the voice of someone who has influence over people, places and things in this country on a broad scale. This is a voice that needs to be censured in the United States House of Representatives. Otherwise, the entire body will be judged by his comments.
