The Evil Mitch McConnell

The Evil Mitch McConnell

Mitch McConnell prays for the health of five Justices on the Supreme Court. Hey Mitch, what about the other four?

Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell, when speaking behind what he thought were closed doors at the Koch brothers' retreat for the ultra-rich last June:
The best Supreme Court in anybody’s memory ... I’m really proud of this Supreme Court ... It’s only five to four, and I pray for the health of the five.
You can draw your own conclusions on what McConnell asks for when praying about the other four Justices 

Mitch McConnell prays for the health of five Justices on the Supreme Court (there's nine of them)
“I want to start by thanking you, Charles and David Koch, for the important work you’re doing. I don’t know where we’d be without you.” – Mitch McConnell
It’s no secret that McConnell has relied on the Koch brothers (Charles and David) in the past. The “important work” McConnell refers to is their use of dark money groups to further their political and economic interests.

Dopes on Dope

Dr. Herbert Kleber on Dope

It's hard to believe in this day and age there is still an organized movement against the use of Marijuana.  That is unless Marijuana can somehow cut into the profits of large pharmacy companies. It seems that is the case with the makers of OxyContin and other pain control drugs. And where is the hemp industry that could be producing oil and fiber.  Absolutely crazy!!

It has been found that many of the researchers who have advocated against legalizing pot have also been on the payroll of leading pharmaceutical firms with products that could be easily replaced by using marijuana.

Take, for example, Dr. Herbert Kleber (the DOPE above) of Columbia University. Kleber has impeccable academic credentials, and has been quoted in the press and in academic publications warning against the use of marijuana, which he stresses may cause wide-ranging addiction and public health issues. But when he's writing anti-pot opinion pieces for CBS News, or being quoted by NPR and CNBC, what's left unsaid is that Kleber has served as a paid consultant to leading prescription drug companies, including Purdue Pharma (the maker of OxyContin), Reckitt Benckiser (the producer of a painkiller called Nurofen), and Alkermes (the producer of a powerful new opioid called Zohydro).

America's Dumbest Congressman

Muslim brothers in the White House

You have got to be the single dumbest person to ever sit behind that desk.

Rep. Louie Gohmert (R-TX) argued, “if you’re Commander-in-Chief you can’t be listening to Muslim brother advice when it’s time to stop destroying Muslim brothers.”

In 2012, Gohmert joined a small group of conservative lawmakers led by Rep. Michele Bachmann (R-MN) to demand that the Inspectors General of four government agencies investigate “deep penetration” by the Muslim Brotherhood in the U.S. government.

Gohmert, who had previously claimed that the organization also caused the administration to bungle the investigation into the 2013 Boston bombings, went on to argue that “six top advisers to President Obama are Muslim brothers.” “These are the advisers who have opened doors for them to the president himself,” he said. “This is the kind of stuff that has to stop if we’re really going to deal with radical Islam.”

Eat Less Chinese Food

The Palin Bimbo is at it again

Sarah Palin has asked Americans to reduce the trade deficit by eating less Chinese food.

In an interview on Fox News this morning, the former Alaska governor claimed that our growing trade deficit with China has become a national security risk and outlined her strategy for reversing the trend.

“We need to quit eating so much darn Chinese food,” she told Fox and Friends’ Steve Doocy. “Don’t Americans realize that the Chinese are taking too much of our money already?

Abuse of Power in Texas

Sleezeball Rick Perry

Mr. Perry’s detractors said that his moves crossed the line from hardball politics to criminal acts that violated state laws. His aides denied that he did anything wrong and said that he acted in accordance with the veto power granted to every governor under the Texas Constitution. Ms. Lehmberg did not resign and remains in office.

The criminal indictment of the state’s chief executive shocked the Texas political world. Mr. Perry will be arraigned at a later date at the county criminal courthouse a few blocks from the governor’s mansion.

Way to Respond to Open-Carry

Walk the fuck out ..... get out of whatever establishment allows them in.  Don't pay, don't make a fuss and if the occasion arises .... say something to the staff.  Just tell them them  the Open-Carry  crazies are responsible for you leaving ...... and leaving in fear !!

The news: How should you respond to open-carry activists who carry firearms into public areas to demonstrate their love of guns? According to the blog Philosophical Questions Every Day (PQED) it's simple: just walk away.

Noting there is really "no legitimate way of determining intent" when suddenly confronted with the presence of men with guns, here's what is recommended:
My proposal is as follows: we should all leave. Immediately. Leave the food on the table in the restaurant. Leave the groceries in the cart, in the aisle. Stop talking or engaging in the exchange. Just leave, unceremoniously, and fast.
But here is the key part: don't pay. Stopping to pay in the presence of a person with a gun means risking your and your loved ones' lives; money shouldn't trump this. It doesn't matter if you ate the meal. It doesn't matter if you've just received food from the deli counter that can't be resold. It doesn't matter if you just got a haircut. Leave. If the business loses money, so be it. They can make the activists pay.
The only thing that makes us notice [the activists] at all is that they have guns and truthfully, that’s why they carry them in the first place. They want to be celebrities, heroes, and the centers of attention.

The Republican Party is dead

Crazy runs deeps in the GOP base, and it’s a huge turn off to younger voters and Independents alike. The death spiral began the day the Republican party embraced the haters in the religious right, and it only got worse when the GOP created and embraced the Tea Party.  Good luck making things better now.

Climate change denier and over all nutcase - Lenar Whitney

So give Lenar Whitney all the attention she wants. Show younger voters, and women, and Latinos, and African-Americans and gays, and everyone else who has eyes to see and ears to hear, exactly what has become of the Grand Old Party.

Use border kids for lab experiments

According to Michele Bachmann

The three stooges

Rep. Michelle Bachmann has a new theory about the unaccompanied minors fleeing violence in Central America who have come in large numbers to the southern U.S. border: they are future victims of a liberal plot to use unwilling children for medical experiments.

Planned Parenthood = Abortion

Can you believe these morons even exist ... let alone in America

A new Planned Parenthood affiliate in Minnesota doesn't even provide abortions, but that hasn't stopped protesters from trying to get rid of it.  I've also heard 'em say they oppose ultrasound as it leads to abortion.
