You have to wonder what goes on in the minds of people who consistently vote Republican. Compare the liberal, progressive state of Minnesota, under a Democratic governor, which is doing very well in almost every category, and is rated the number one state for business by CNBC, with the state of Wisconsin under the Republican Scott Walker, which has a tanking economy and is doing poorly in almost every category.
The people who vote for these Republican clowns are like the person who has cancer and goes to the doctor saying "Give me more cancer! Please!"
Did you hear about the movement to put a woman on the $10 bill? I guess this is a nod to the feministas, and that's a good thing. But $10? That's kind of an insult, don't you think? Is that all a woman's worth, $10? If we're serious about treating women as real people of value, let's move up to the $100 bill at least. Or maybe back down to the $20. And the reason is that $20 bills see a lot of action - more than $100 bills do - so if a woman's face was on the $20, more people would see it and probably want to make sure women get the same pay as men for equal work.
The Republican Party is not only in disarray, but is disintegrating! Good to see. One example: Rep. Mark Meadows, an ultra-conservative from North Carolina, has filed a resolution to "vacate the chair" held currently by Speaker of the House, John Boehner. That's sort of like kicking your dad out of the house 'cause you disagree with him on how late you can stay out at night. The resolution will probably not go anywhere but gives an idea how widespread right-wing nuttery is in our Congress.
Hopefully, one of these days will see and hear a big "Poof!" and voila, the Congress will be emptied of Republicans and we can get back to some kind of normalcy.
Have you ever seen a beer-guzzling Venezuelan? If you get a chance anytime soon, grab it, as Venezuela may soon be faced with a shortage of beer. There's some complicated economic reasons for this but it's quite serious as 400,000 jobs are involved.
We have lots of beer in this country. Maybe we could send them some? We'd call it "foreign aid" and the government could write it off as a business transaction.
This is from The Freethinker:
EVANGELICAL pastor Valdeci Sobrino Picanto hit on a crafty way of getting blowjobs. He convinced his followers that his semen was “holy milk” and, according to one of his flock:
He has convinced us that only God could come into our lives through our mouth and that’s why he would do what he did. Often, after worship, pastor Valdeci would take us to the where the funds were kept at the back of the Church and asked us to have oral sex with him until the Holy Spirit would come through ejaculation.Picanto said after his arrest that he intended sharing his sacred semen with fellow inmates.
What a prick!
Moving from low to high: Gov. Christie, the grifter guv of New Jersey, vowed that when he becomes prez he will shut down all that Mary Juana stuff.
From Mock, Paper, Scissors:
“If you’re getting high in Colorado today, enjoy it,” said Christie, a 2016 presidential candidate, during the town hall meeting in New Hampshire, according to Bloomberg. “As of January 2017, I will enforce the federal laws.”
I don't think this is the best way to garner votes. But maybe he smells something the rest of us don't smell. He's from New Jersey, ya know.
Every once in awhile, I see a notice about "Candidly Nicole." What the hell is that? I checked it out. It has to do with a Nicole Richie. There are a series of videos where she talks, flirts, acts strange, funny, dumb...
Who cares? Why would something like this mess up our beautiful Internet?
Let me be very candid, Nicole: Go get a job. Get out of our faces. Stop degrading the Internet. If "Lost" comes back, please sign up.
Lastly but not leastly the beastly John McCain has stuck his foot in it again. He's called the agreement between the U.S. and Iran re nuclear weapons to be a "shopping spree." What? Poor John. His head just ain't working too well anymore. A shopping spree, Mr. McCain, is when you go to the mall and buy whatever the hell you want.
That doesn't sound very much like an agreement to keep Iran from building nuclear weapons, does it?
Sad to say but I think you've gone from spry to spree. Not a pretty picture!
