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.
