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

Jumping Off More Than a Fiscal Cliff

It's gotten to the point that people are ready to push conservative
fanatics off a real cliff. Now, as 2012 comes to a close,
is 'Stupid' finally on the wane?

I'm certainly not one for false hope, but, after a few weeks
of disastrously moronic, insensitive, ridiculous, and insane
commentary and actions from major conservative
Republican Party members...
is it possible that the tide has finally turned, and
Americans are sick of stupid people running their country?

Let's start with possibly the most egregious and most ignorant,
talking-out-of-his-ass moment by far, the press conference held
yesterday by Wayne La Pierre of the National Rifle Association,
and his delusional crackpot theory that a further abundance of
guns will help kill less people.

Not only did he blame everyone possible other than the NRA for
the tragedy and the mindset of shooters, but he took NO
responsibility as a gun owner/promoter/collector/nut for
the tragedy in Connecticut. He's so far gone he didn't realize
he was putting on a PR faux pas the size of King Kong in what
was designed to be a heroic position!

Also quite fresh is Little Johnny Boehner and his failure to deliver the
compromise to bring Republicans to the table on a resolution for
the fiscal cliff. But it's all still Obama's fault, even though the majority
of American's polled (CNN/ORC) this week feel the Republican
Party is too extreme, and earlier this month, another poll
(NBC/Wall Street Journal, 12-13-2012) showed that only 19%
of Americans thought that Boehner and the GOP were capable
of solving the fiscal cliff issue!

This morning on CNN, a Republican rep was saying that
the failure to deliver a solution
 was not John Boehner's responsibility!?!
WTF! Uh, yeah...it actually is his fricking JOB! It's what
he was hired to do, but it looks like it's another four years
of stone-walling and bullshit for politics' sake while the
little guy suffers.

No, Republicans are saying that they won't raise taxes even
on millionaires (Plan B) because they don't want to be seen as
having raised taxes at all. Translation: They are obliged to their
rich donors and it doesn't matter how small a percentage of the
population it is as long as they have that money.

Because really, what could be more absurd than letting taxes
raise for everyone in order to avoid raising taxes for a small
percentage, and using the excuse that you don't want to raise
taxes at all?!?

Just more ridiculous smoke and mirrors, bait and switch
nonsense from Republicans. Do wrong, then blame Democrats
for doing what the GOP is actually guilty of. As long as it gets
in people's heads and confuses them, they win!

Then we've got all these hardcore 'religious' assholes who are
hell-bent on imposing their agenda on everyone else, while
playing the victim! (There's some more of  that deliciously
devilish, rank irony and duplicity for ya!)

Rick Warren and his lot are determined to convince the
world that gays and lesbians are the bane of all existence,
even going so far as to blame homosexuality and 'godlessness'
for the school shooting in Newtown (full article.)
 These people invoke the name of God while there is nothing of
light or truth or kindness anywhere in their souls.

And people are getting to the point of having had enough!

(By the way, loved having Shamu there sit on the interview chair
across from Chelsea Clinton and harp on the need for
congregants to be more fit and healthy, this week, while
he continues to balloon and rot! I guess that's more of
his "Do what I say, not what I do" philosophy that is so
popular with narcissistic, pretentious, power-hungry control freaks.)


People are getting fed up with the high level of 'unstable and crazy'
that has permeated and festered in the Republican party
for these last two decades. They're finally sick enough of
the hubris and the disregard that they are finally getting
organized and vocal in response.

So, maybe as we enter a new year, we can (of course) count
on the extremist Republicans to continue shooting themselves in
the foot--but not before they stick it in their mouth. And then,
maybe, the tide will just turn and we'll see some moral and social
responsibility become their focus, as opposed to merely
fiscal responsibility.

Which--just a reminder--they're not doing so hot with right
now, anyway!
