We may need to shut the GOP down until we can figure out what’s going on.
Honestly, the first time I watched the video and he said, "We're both consenting adults, Let's do it." My mind thought they wanted to have sex. I never heard of consenting adults vis a vis punching each other. Hahhahhah!!! but then, I'm more into sex than punching or gun play.
What idiots. What a colossally stupid political party. Teeny dicks and big guns; as if that makes them anything other than a pathetic jackass?
There needs to be an investigation of the RNC: Thanks to fascist billionaires exploiting “Citizens United,” the RNC operates as an organized crime syndicate with installed puppets that behave as petty mob bosses. They cheat whenever and wherever they can; gerrymandering, strong-arming--pulling advertizing from opposition candidates, accepting laundered funds from foreign enemies--there isn’t a shred of integrity left to the RNC.
This all reminds me of the state of affairs on the Hill in 1856, when Republican Senator Charles Sumner was beaten into unconsciousness by a southern Democrat representative. That era ended well :-(
BTW, you also forgot to mention that MTG required a civics lesson after her speech yesterday by Rosa DeLauro. Although I agree with most of what you said today, there *is* also a component that is oven overlooked. Many Americans (and apparently some of our representatives) simply never had to study how government works or its history. MTG is of an age that it is unlikely she ever had to take civics, whereas in my day it was a requirement for high school graduation almost everywhere. So there is a concern underlying this mess, especially on the state and local levels as we prepare the next generation to lead and the next generation of voters. Curricula everywhere is under attack and being dumbed down. There are exceptions (Victor Shi and David Hogg come to mind), but still.
Of course, in my day civility and common courtesy were also standards by which we all had to live.
I stick by my comment from yesterday. I’m in utter disbelief that anyone supports these idiots!
I'm not celebrating the way they averted the shutdown. I think the main factor of the deal is that for the first time, we won't be funding the whole government at once, but doing it in stages. That's been a conservative goal for decades. It hasn't necessarily been top of their list, but they've been telling me with varying degrees of intensity since the 1980s that someday having a straight, standalone, up-or-down vote on funding for, say, the IRS or the EPA -- that's the dream. And they're a step closer now. Maybe Democrats had to support this bill, but it's not a victory.
I'm sick to death of paying these people to act like jackasses. VOTE THEM OUT! And let's start in New York with Stefanik (who walks around with a smug grin on her face all the time) and Santos (who doesn't have a clue about anything and lies about it all). What rat hole did these people crawl out of anyway? Bleh. And by the way, to quote Biff -- "other countries are laughing at us". Yes. Yes, they are... and rightly so; but when you're neck deep in this crap it ain't so damn funny.
Here’s a part of a longer piece I wrote several months ago:
The Republicans are suffering from a delusion that is as old as human societies; the belief that they can harness political violence to achieve their own personal ends. And at this stage of the game, it seems to be working. But it is not, and never will be, possible to tame violence like that. For hundreds, if not thousands, of years, those who have tried this have ended up as victims themselves.
The Republicans are beginning to experience their own version of the Night of the Long Knives. And it will get worse.
The Republican Party needs to rebrand itself as the MAGA Party. Take ownership for what you are.
The RNC will rename itself the MAGA National Committee. Tell all the states (and MSM and everyone else) that the Republican politicians are now MAGA politicians. Update all future ballots to reflect the new name. Each state will rename the state "Republican Party" to the state "MAGA Party."
The use of the phrase "Grand Old Party", "GOP" and the "Party of Lincoln" is not allowed to describe the MAGA Party. Delete all Republican Party trademarks (the elephant) . Replace the trademarks with "MAGA" (gun? AR15?)
If the folks at the Lincoln Project wish to use the "Republican" name then they can buy it from you. Make them pay for it. After all the MAGA Party is all about money, power and domination.
And if they want to call themselves the conservatives and embrace traditional Republican values and policies, then let them. The MAGA Party has no policy except to take total control of the country. Whatever Trump wants Trump gets.
And if any MAGA politician still wishes to be thought of as a Republican then they can be labeled with the slur "RINO". Since the MAGA Party has abandoned its traditional Republican roots and has no shame or conscience you truly have become "Republicans In Name Only."
The Federalist Society, The Heritage Society, The Claremont Institute and the other billionaire supported think tanks can join you too. Come out of the woodwork. The white supremist kool aid drinking fools can be your shock troops.
Kenneth Buck was right: "We (the Republican Party) have lost our way." The world is watching as the GOP shows its complete and utter lack of civility and professionalism. The only solution is to vote as many as we can out of office. They dont deserve to be there and are a clear danger to our democracy. (Who names their kid "Markwayne" anyway?🙄)
Let's be honest; they are looking forward to the day they think trump will be back in the white house. Then they can hold investigations on political enemy's all day every day, put more Aileen Cannon's on the bench, and fund the military. The nonsense going on right now is just the beginning. We cannot become complacent, or get distracted; there is way too much at stake.
I don't understand why the Republican Speakers who do seem to manage to get spending bills passed are only playing kick the can with this mess, making every 'solution' temporary.
I also have a proposal: Can we stop calling them the Republican Party or the GOP and just call them what they are - the Fascist Party. There is no GOP anymore.
I offer a tiny glimmer of hope. In a rural, very conservative Texas town, near Dallas, the high school principal cancelled the long-planned performance of "Oklahoma" because of the musical's "profane and sexual context". The real reason: a transgender student had been given a lead role. Outraged students and parents staged demonstrations outside the school offices and, total surprise, at a late night meeting, the District reversed the principal's decision and restored the original casting
If it can happen in Texas........
Q. How many US Senators does it take to screw in a lightbulb?
A. Two. One to do the screwing and one to remind the first he's a US Senator.
In 2016 I said it’s going to get worse before it gets better. And moved out of the country to Paris.
I don’t normally consider myself clairvoyant but on that point, I was and I predict it will be even worse before this dumpster fire is spent.
Why do I sense Mr Mullen has a small unsatisfying penis? 🤔
Congress has become the school playground with roaming bullies. As a proud graduate of Catholic schools, they need some nuns as playground monitors :)
