Let's just eliminate all the bullshit, shall we?

Reich in Front of Your Eyes


Now the truth can be told.

Mitt Romney is not actually interested
in running for the highest office in the land.

Yes, he is in fact signed up, running a
campaign, and is the official Republican pick
for Presidential nominee.

But Smitty is not looking to win.
He was just bored and wanted something to do,
and the chalet in the Alps was so 1987.
The traveling and the closing down businesses
and the spending sprees and the possessions
were so tedious and uninspiring.

So on a lark, he threw his hat in the ring.
And now that the shine is off that, too,
he's just letting himself go.

He's heavy-sweating, losing-his-cool,
not covering his tail, letting it all
hang out LOSIN' IT!

And he's not fit to run an evening
jog, let alone run the damned country!

Remember

Seminole County, Georgia Sample Ballot for November 6th Election

If you haven't already participated in
Advance-Voting, here's what you can
expect when you go to vote.

The first two pages are what the entire
ballot will look like, with the
exception of the County Commissioner race--
which will change depending on where you
live/vote. (Following the two pages are the
alternate ballot selections for the corresponding districts.)

Of course it's all a moot point anyway, unless you
plan on writing in a candidate, since
they are all running unopposed.

The Price of Freedom


I was thinking of bayonets and horses again today.
Specifically, how I would rather be stuck with a bayonet in
a new version of the Boston Tea Party, or run over by a
horse being used by a new Paul Revere than stand in line
and wait behind the old couple at early voting at the courthouse.

And listen to the comedy of errors from their poor,
senile heads as they yammered on and on.


So, old befuddled Jed and Granny asked a million questions,
didn't understand uncontested races, didn't understand touch-screen,
and forgot their instructions as soon as they were told.
It took for-EV-er for Ma Kettle to finish up and
there's no telling who she voted for.

Feeble old coots going through all this in order to
exercise their democratic responsibility to the republic?
Should be awesomeness personified, right?
I'm just wondering if they even knew who the
candidates were. I imagine they were there to make
certain Millard Filmore got reelected.


Where's the fairness, too, since they'll likely be worm food
before November 6th, let alone Inauguration Day.
Ah, well, I endured...and Grandpa Willard was still
hard at work trying to finish his voting (before his
horse and buggy got fined for being illegally parked)
as I left the courthouse.

Still, after the experience, a good old Civil War doesn't
seem so difficult to survive. Nor does it seem so
difficult to imagine how it occurred.

(Now, I trust the folks at the Registrar's Office/Probate
Office, but this scene is likely to be repeated over
and over again with the populace of a mostly elderly retirement
community come election day. There are some skeevy
hoes volunteering at the polling places who could
take advantage of addle-brained seniors to promote
their candidate. Not that a Republican would ever
stoop to dirty tactics!!!!! Haaa! So, if you know an older
voter who may need help, PLEASE go with them!
Unless of course, you're the one intending to scam them!)


I cast my ballot to oppose greater tyranny,
to stop the spread of conservatism and oppression
of civil rights. But I can't shake the feeling that all I
did was kneecap one of the many angry cracker's votes.

As of my visit, 583 other persons had participated
in early voting. Approximately 10% of the
registered voter population in this area.
I imagine most are the zombified, clueless, oldsters
like those before me, muddling through the process,
spurred on by scare tactics and fear of the future.

Ah, well...at least the new "I Voted" stickers are cooler.

(Early Voting continues through Friday, November 2nd,
Monday thru Friday 9 to 5,
and special Saturday hours on October 27th, 9 to 4
at the Seminole County Courthouse, downtown)

**PLEASE NOTE:
YOU MUST have picture i.d.
and know what your name and address appears
as on the voter i.d. card! Be prepared!

Gay Republicans? Stupid Is As Stupid Does

So, no big surprise, but the ridiculous and fucktarded
"Log Cabin Republicans" announced official backing
of Willard Romney yesterday.

The Log Cabin Republicans.
The guys who specifically exist so as to be a
uniquely gay support group for the Republican party,
the party with policies and stances that are designed
to eviscerate and decimate gay people, their rights,
their dignity. (And, by the way, named innocuously
enough so most folks wouldn't know what the hell
their group is.)


Do I think all "LCRs" are self-hating fags who want
to concede and be tolerated (superficially) at any cost.
No, not at all.

I think about half are self-hating and desperate for
the dismissive 'affections' of their tormentors, and the
rest are a bunch of ignorant fucking Uncle Toms who
have sold us out and are selfish bastards who care about
their own money, power, and prestige.

For a few pieces of silver...


Supposedly a back-room deal and a false promise from
Romney, the most notorious two-face in politics, was
the impetus for Clarke Cooper (head of the LCR) to
go ahead and give support to the Romney campaign
at the last minute.

Not that it matters; these goons are hated and laughed at on
both sides; by the folks they betray within their 'community,'
and by the 'real' Republicans who still despise them but 
contentiously welcome their vote.



And nope, sexuality is NOT the only issue on the table,
obviously! But the GOP is wrong on EVERY social
stance for this country; their anti-gay rhetoric and conservatism,
their unholy alliance with the 'Christian' extremists is simply
indicative of a larger sickness across-the-board.

But what kind of person supports a candidate that
is wholly devoted to denying you rights and
protection? Was there a payoff involved in this
issued support? Because stupidity alone does not
justify backing a flip-flopping, bullying thug with a
history of anti-gay activity that predates his political
career! (And one pro-gay Boy Scouts remark nearly
20 years ago is hardly grounds for ignoring everything else!)



And, Hello! The Mormons are some of the most repressive,
anti-gay religious fanatics out there! Did you all forget that this
guy's first commitment and focus and MISSION in life
(in his addled brain) is to spread his Kool-Aid fueled
religious BS?

It's not a coincidence that a huge history of closeted
gay politicians have been embedded in the Republican party, where,
yes, they have made anti-gay decisions their ticket to
success! How sick is that? You have to be able to hate yourself
if you can detach from making horrific decisions that will
help ruin lives.

It really doesn't make a difference to me if pro-Republican fags are
in or out of the closet; you're an embarrassment, you're dangerous, and
anyone with a lick of sense will refrain from having sex with you
until you come to your senses. You all are out trying to get laid
while the rest of us are busy getting fucked.

Obviously, getting your rocks off is the only
aspect of being gay you care about.
That's one giant step back in time,
and one giant embrace of a filthy stereotype.
Congrats.

Which Shitty Smitty Halloween Costume Will Be Yours?

The Bad Ass Who Wants to Get Rid of PBS
and education?

The sainted and hallowed 'savior' of the entire country?
(I guess he could wear a robe and a thorn of crowns, too!)

Caveman-Mitt with his gaffe-induced 'binders of women?'

Or Mitt-the-Hutt with his more literal--and accurate--
rendition of bound women in servitude?
(Oh, but just you wait, honey, til you see what the
'bound woman' ends up doing with those chains!!)

The Plastic Man? Taking on any shape that suits him?
(Kind of an insult to even a lesser known comic book
character--although Plas was "Eel" O'Brien, a
'former' criminal and slick con man. Hmmnnnn...)

Romney-bot?

The Bain Capitalist?
Bringing us a dark night?

Another Bat-classic: The Two-Face.
(Let's just keep it simple and descriptive.)

How about a two-sided actual Romney mask?
Just like the real Mitt, people won't know
whether you're coming or going!

Pinocchio Mitt?
A scared little fibbing boy, lost...but note the lack of
a conscience in this rendition!

Ahhh...the "Pander Bear"...and he has an attachable
white Dry Erase board on his chest so you can
display whatever message suits your audience of
the moment!

Travel back in time with the dangerously out-of-touch
Civil War era 'horses-and-bayonets" Mitty?

Portray a cartoonish money-bags having dolt who
is self-obsessed and delusional?
(Or, conversely, go dressed as Thurston Howell III.)

Just throw on a suit, a bad attitude, and carry an Etch-A-Sketch?

Fake extra mouth so you can talk out of both sides of it?

Or hell...if pressed for time, just wear a realistic
Romney mask and really scare the Bejeezus out of
everyone whose path you cross!

'Breaking Bad,' 'Bane,' and Zombies got
nothing on Old Man Willard!
BE AFRAID!!!

The 47% Speak


JUST SAY "NO"
TO
'ROMNEY & RYAN"
in 2012...

BECAUSE "R & R"
IS THE LAST THING
WE NEED!

LET'S PUT
AMERICA
BACK TO WORK!

*************

A New America?


Driving to work last Wednesday morning, the
day after the second Presidential debate, I made
myself listen to the ridiculously out-of-touch pandering
of the red neck hosts on local country radio station.

In an unprecedented act of brutal torture, I listened to
a second country station, and, for good measure, a
religious station. (I like to keep abreast of what The Enemy
is thinking and saying at all times.)


Post-debate rhetorical insanity was fever-pitch,
with calls for prayer and fasting, demands for a
"Come to Jesus" meeting for the nation, angry
rebuking for the President to stop lying (say Wha!?!?)
and for the wronged Mr. Romney to 'justifiably' grab
up the President by the lapels and teach him a lesson.

Threatening/boasting/peacocking that "once you
toss someone around the room and shove a microphone down
their throat, they'll be less likely to talk smack about you again."

Isn't it interesting how deceitful the supporters of a deceitful man are?

Joe Biden was insulted for his pro-choice stance;
"So basically he believes it's murder (Catholic views) but he's
willing to let people do it." and on and on.
(Actually, he has conviction, but is smart enough to know
that his beliefs will not apply to every other person in
the country--a concept lost of fanatical conservatives.)


So is all this an unveiling of a new America developing,
or simply a reveal of what's been with us all along--
well-concealed and covert?

The violent-minded threats against the President
(from everyone from commentators to radio hosts to Tag Romney)
are obvious for their true nature. No, no white President would
have threats of physical violence made against him over the
airwaves without consequence...believe that.

There is no more 'respectfully disagree,' but rather
an automatic jump to a thuggish threat?
Doesn't matter that the President's statement was
true, and that Romney is untruthful (a fact his
followers are either ignorant to or unconcerned with,)
but the message here is clear; any excuse to lose civility
is embraced.

These folks are looking for an excuse to have a
violent uprising...and if it doesn't occur naturally,
they're going to invent one.

"Snapped back to reality..."

(This piece was taken from a circulating e-mail, author unknown.
It so expertly delineates the hypocrisy behind the blaring rhetoric,
I'm including it here.

Some see the difference, some ignore the difference, some are in
denial about the difference, but the commonality is the same;
There IS a difference.)

FOR THOSE OF YOU WHO SEEM TO BE SO MAD AT OBAMA, FOR NO
GOOD REASON, READ THIS AND REFLECT A MOMENT … THEN SAY
TO YOURSELF:

"Hmmmmmmmmmm...YOU ARE RIGHT!!!"

Now, since Obama's regime, all of a sudden, folks have gotten mad, and want to take America Back...BACK TO WHAT/BACK TO WHERE is my question?

After The 8 Years Of The Bush/Cheney Disaster, Now You Get Mad?

You didn't get mad when the Supreme Court stopped a legal recount and appointed a President.

You didn't get mad when Cheney allowed Energy company officials to dictate Energy policy and push us to invade Iraq.

You didn't get mad when we illegally invaded a country that posed no threat to us.

You didn't get mad when we spent over 800 billion (and counting) on said illegal war.

You didn't get mad when Bush borrowed more money from foreign sources than the previous 42 Presidents combined.

You didn't get mad when over 10 billion dollars in cash just disappeared in Iraq.

You didn't get mad when Bush embraced trade and outsourcing policies that shipped 6 million American jobs out of the country.

You didn't get mad when they didn't catch Bin Laden.

You didn't get mad when Bush rang up 10 trillion dollars in combined budget and current account deficits.

You didn't get mad when you saw the horrible conditions at Walter Reed.

You didn't get mad when we let a major US city, New Orleans, drown.

You didn't get mad when we gave people who had more money than they could spend, the 1%, over a trillion dollars in tax breaks.

You didn't get mad with the worst 8 years of job creations in several decades.

You didn't get mad when over 200,000 US Citizens lost their lives because they had no health insurance.

You didn't get mad when lack of oversight and regulations from the Bush Administration caused US Citizens to lose 12 trillion dollars in investments,
retirement, and home values.

You finally got mad when a black man was elected President and decided that people in America deserved the right to see a doctor if they are sick. Yes,
illegal wars, lies, corruption, torture, job losses by the millions, stealing your
tax dollars to make the rich richer, and the worst economic disaster since 1929
are all okay with you, but helping fellow Americans who are sick... Oh, Hell No!

Slasher Films Just Got Scarier


Well, at least they got a kiss before
they fucked each other.
The rest of us might as well
bend over and grab ankles,
cuz there's no dinner, no date,
no kiss, and no lube in our future.

Ann Romney stars in "Stop, Stop, Stoppity-Stop" whine-fest


(A parody is worth a thousand words; I refuse to
put atrocious Ann's sour puss up here and scare off readers!)

No...YOU stop it, you squirrelly scrunt.

If this is how you respond to criticism now, it's no doubt you and
your partner-in-crime are NOT ready to be elected for high public
office.

You won't even answer direct questions, you won't discuss issues,
you have no specific plans, you don't actually want the job of First
Lady, and you don't know if your husband can emotionally or
mentally handle the job of leading the nation!??! What the fuck!!!!

Yeah, once more--YOU STOP IT! It is hard, and you aren't
ready for this jelly.

Not Even Debatable


So, 'O' is cool under pressure, articulate,
thoughtful, and has an actual understanding of
the issues. He can converse, explain, and is
personable and charming.

Romney is stiff, unable to deal with the unexpected,
unwilling to enter unscripted situations, and has
no actual solid viewpoints to be explained.
(As often noted, he was born with a silver spoon
in his mouth--alongside his foot.)
He's his own worst enemy.

To quote the Divine One, "Oh noooo,
this isn't going to be so much of a mud flinging,
as it's going to be a landslide!"

Whatever your position, check out the debate.
A man who can't handle his cool or
explain his views probably isn't ready to run
a country. Decide for yourself.
