In Memorium

Once again, Memorial Day is upon us. And once again, most people in the U.S. will be smiling and laughing while chuggin’ brew and slingin’ barbeque. Many enjoying their celebrations this weekend are completely oblivious to the real reason for this mislabeled “holiday”…….those that have fallen and paid the ultimate sacrifice in service to their nation. In the link below you will find my serious and heartfelt tribute to these heroes in a column from 2017’s Memorial Day.

In the here and now of 2019 Clown World, however……I find myself adding something else to memorialize. Like sanity. You see, in Clown World America, this is a wholesome time at Church or the local publicly-funded library:

Come closer, kiddies.

Perhaps that’s just what being a progressive comes with, I don’t know. But in a world where the mentally ill commit child abuse using tax dollars, who could be surprised that this poor kid below is the poster child for an “empowered” generation? Isn’t it cute? I can totally see this kid’s generation storming Normandy beach on D-Day. Thanks public education!

Good Morning America!

Don’t forget to cover American icon Kate Smith – famous singer of “God Bless America” – in a plastic burka because she doesn’t conform to 2019’s ridiculous “morality”. Smith’s statue might as well be a Confederate War Memorial, and we know what do with those, don’t we?

Screw America, am I right?

In Clown World America, The House of Representatives is the most important branch of a branch of government. I mean technically they are supposed to pass budgets and propose legislation, but who’s got time for that when you’re busy investigating your enemies and using the power of the federal government to create opposition research? Spitting out hate through your dentures while being the most powerful person on the planet is hard work, isn’t it Nancy?

Hey Madam Speaker, is it a “national emergency” that the equivalent of the population of Atlanta, Georgia comes illegally across the border every 90 days? Up to 40 million unassimilated and illiterate foreign nationals – most using public services and schools – in your country is definitely not a problem. I mean, really, it worked for the Romans, right? It’s as healthy as transitioning little children from one gender to another, I say.

Too bad they’re better than you.

Hopefully none of this will put a damper on anyone’s fun activities this weekend. Most of us can gleefully continue to be completely unaware and uncaring about those that sacrificed for our nation. Where’s the mustard? My hot dog’s getting cold.

Unlimited Power!

That’s what it’s all about.

Who’s got it. Where it comes from. How to get it. How to keep it. Who doesn’t have enough. Who should have more. Who shouldn’t have it.

In case you have yet to guess, I’m talking about power. If you’ve recently wondered how the democrat Governor of Virginia, Ralph Northam, has the balls to stay in office after casually discussing baby-murder ( ’cause he’s a doctor, duh ) and then being exposed as a typical left-wing racist…..complete with blackface and klan outfit….wonder no more. Don’t forget that Northam’s Lt. Gov. is now an alleged sex-assaulter and the state’s attorney general has also said ” uh…I also have appeared in blackface…”. Wow. What a shock. The party of slavery and racism never disappoints, it seems. In addition to old-fashioned demo-racists/rapists, there is also the anti-Semitic Rep. Ilhan Omar from Minnesota. Who would have guessed that importing Somali muslims and then electing them to congress would turn out bad?  Anyway, none of these idiots has had the class to even stay out of the spotlight, much less step down…..why? That would mean giving up their power.

Aside from Virginia, you’ve got the recent State of The Union drama – with Trump nailing it and Pelosi displaying Alzheimer’s – all happening amidst another potential “shutdown”.  Pelosi is obviously in the thralls of a serious ailment, either brought on by disease or long-term use of Congress’ favorite vices…..booze and cocaine. Her and her pal Chuck Schumer have impeded, obstructed, and sabotaged bills that they themselves have previously supported ie: immigration, wall funding, and border enforcement. Billions are given to countries like Honduras and Mexico under their watch, and their previous party president – Obama – gave 1.8 billion ( in cash, in foreign currencies due to a shortage of immediately available U.S. bills ) illegally to Iran to close the “Iran Deal”. So why deny the White House 5.7 billion in funding to secure the obviously dangerous porous southern border?  To deny the President power and increase their own.

In the last few days you have probably heard much about the “Green New Deal”, proposed by millennial stereotype Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez. Nevermind that it mandates the abolition of airline travel, drinking your own pee, “refurbishing” every building in the country, and giving bums a “living wage”…..it also completely destroys the fundamentals of The United States and the idea of individual liberty, and it could happen. I’m serious.

Compared to the State of The Union and the Virginia debacle, the “GND” is the most serious threat to our lives and liberty, and have no doubt, it is about having and maintaining unlimited power. Over you, your healthcare, 88% of the nation’s energy production…..over literally every single minute of your life…….all in the name of and in the excuse of…..The Weather.  Now, if you’re an empirical thinker and not an indoctrinated idiot, you may find this scenario impossible and silly. You’d be wrong.  See, in the name of accruing and wielding power, an entire generation has been raised to hate themselves, and humanity, for “the destruction of the planet”. You must recognize that this is the New Religion of the progressive left, and in the name of their god they will take everything from you. To underestimate the seriousness of that statement would be a grave mistake.

Here’s the thing: “climate change” exists. It always has. The weather on Earth has gone through epochs and ages, all swinging wildly. Humans have polluted and been thoughtless about the consequences to their environment in decades past, yet the planet continues to spin and the sun continues to burn. I advocate responsible conservation and management of our environment, as most people do. However, I do not advocate giving imperfect, and often incredibly stupid, persons the power to rule my every action and thought. In my opinion, and in the opinion of the Swiss National Science Foundation as of Jan. 2019, the sun and solar activity is the main engine of climate on Earth. And not just the Earth, but every planet in the solar system is currently experiencing “extreme weather” due to solar activity. I guess one of the many things not currently taught in school is that the Earth orbits the sun, technically within its corona, and the only thing protecting us from being a barren, scorched furnace is the Earth’s magnetic field. Humans have no impact on that. As I’ve previously written, humans are ants on an anthill, stupidly worrying about the state of the yard and railing against the mystical lawnmower. We could fire every nuke ever made, and the planet would continue to orbit the sun and life would still remain. Yes, humans might cease to exist…..but the planet?   In our current hysterical era that makes me a heretic to the New Religion.

The American education system, and corporate media, has brainwashed an entire generation to believe in “man-made climate change”, that their lives are constantly under threat from The Weather, and that they must submit their hopes and dreams to a global government because that’s the only thing that can “save the planet”. In addition, this brainwashed generation is also completely ignorant of…….well, literally everything except Social Justice Intersectionality….which is….you guessed it…..all about power.

If you find yourself in a discussion with one of these folks, just ask them: Where does it lead? What entity would have the power to implement and enforce your New Religion? Wouldn’t it come down to holding a gun to the head of every person on the planet? How else could you make the heretics fall in line? How would you make other nations abide by the tenets of your “environmentalism”? They won’t have any answers, they’ll just get really pissed at you. Believe me.

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is not joking. Her political party isn’t either. She may believe the ridiculous things she promotes, but others know that it’s just a tool to control everything in perpetuity. For what, you ask? That’s right….Unlimited power.

Everybody Must Get Stoned

The Face Of Evil?

 Another year is upon us, and in my opinion, it will be a very long one. Over 2 years into the Stalin…oops, I mean Mueller, “investigation”, there is absolutely no evidence or testimony that claims – much less proves – that President Trump is an agent of Russia ( pause for belly-laugh ). Now, if you’ve got an IQ over 70, you know there never will be any such evidence or proof. If you possess an IQ under 70, or in other words are a progressive leftist, you don’t know much at all. Except that white people are evil and a “Make America Great Again” hat or a Trump t-shirt is the equivalent of being a Klan member. Oh, and that “National Socialism” is awesome…..unless you abbreviate it, that is.

 To be honest, I have grown tired of arguing with morons and fending off death threats and “doxing” for being one of the very few vocal patriots left in the United States. I have grown weary of spending my time explaining to people who have college degrees, yet can’t tell me who won the war of 1812 – ( and yes I’m serious….I frequently engage in online spats with “highly educated” progressives that can’t answer that question without using Google ) – that they are completely ignorant of the history, formation, laws, and structure of the nation that they inhabit and seek to destroy.

Recently, an iconic American brand with an equally iconic slogan announced to the world it is under the sway of dumbass social justice warriors. Gillette, of “The Best A Man Can Get” fame, has released its new ad campaign christened, “The Best Men Can Be”.  Usually I just sigh and yawn when stuff like this happens, but the fact that this is a brand based solely on selling products to men – American men –  makes this ad disgusting and disturbing. If you haven’t seen it here you go:

https://youtu.be/koPmuEyP3a0

 Just so you know, this is the decision of the parent company Procter and Gamble. Yes, a well-known and verified global polluter and chemicals manufacturer has decided to virtue signal for profit. That fact alone should open the eyes of the dupes that produce,  proffer and consume this garbage, but no….they think the French and Indian War was fought between the French and the Indians. Over how to make the best curry chicken, no less.

The Hitlerian tactics of the left aren’t limited to evil globalist corporations, though. In the past week we’ve seen kids from the Covington Catholic School in Kentucky demonized for being, frankly, the best behaved high school kids ever. In the face of racist “victims” ( the Black Hebrew Israelites – stifle another belly laugh ) shouting slurs, and a drunken Indian hobo banging a drum and wailing, these kids acted like kids……not punks…..yet now these MAGA hate-hat wearing demons will be forever punished online by people with far more privilege than they will ever have.

The hits are coming at a faster and faster rate. Roger Stone, a sometime advisor to Trump and podcast host, had 29 Feebs….oops, I mean FBI agents in body-armor, storm into his home at 6 AM and terrorize his wife and dog in order to frog-march him out of his domicile – in front of  a timely and conveniently placed CNN camera crew ( Wow, Mueller leaks like a cheap diaper, doesn’t he? ).  Stone’s crime? He “lied” to the FBI in a “process crime”. In case you were wondering, I’ll give you an example of what we’re discussing : Let’s say that you are being interviewed by Robert Mueller, or God-forbid this guy:

Yes, this asshole started a coup while cheating on his wife.

The interrogation begins: “Mr. Racist Trump Supporter, can you tell me what you had for lunch today?”. Response: “Why yes, I had a ham sandwich.”. The questioning then stops and you are called in a week later to “clarify your remarks”. Again, it begins with, “Mr. Racist Trump Supporter, in our last interview I wasn’t clear on one of your answers….so let me ask again, what did you have for lunch a week ago today?”. You pause to ponder the question and then respond, ” Oh yes, I remember…..it was a turkey sandwich.”. Within seconds you are handcuffed and on your way to solitary confinement at an undisclosed Federal prison. Your crime? You just “obstructed justice” and “lied to Federal investigators” in the “Russia investigation”. Don’t believe me? Just ask Paul Manafort if he’s still alive and you can find him…..or Roger Stone before he disappears into the Department of Justice’s black hole. The SJW progressive left, the Media, and the ridiculous-yet-dangerous Democrats won’t be happy until you get the same treatment.

Keep in mind, this is all happening under the fake crisis of the “Government Shutdown”. Call me a jerk, but 87 % of the government has been open, and in my opinion, if my tax dollars are paying for “non-essential employees”, then just stay home forever. Let me ask you, how many “non-essential employees” do you have working for you? Would you like to be considered as “non-essential” at your job? Would you think yourself valuable and safe in your employment with that designation?  Now, if you’re in the Armed Forces, you should get paid. If you’re in the TSA I don’t care. The TSA’s job is to ogle pics of your wife’s naked body-scan and steal stuff out of your luggage, all while deterring no one. If you’re an air-traffic controller, again….I don’t care. Why is the TSA not privatized? Why are the controllers not privatized? Do you feel good about the lazy slob you interacted with at the DMV controlling your air travel? Me neither. The airline industry is amok with Union and local government corruption and that’s why flying sucks.  I’m sure that some jerk will explain to me, in his death-threat-email, about how blah-blah-blah and blah-blah-blah…..but I don’t buy it. I’ll make you this guarantee: Private enterprise would do a far better, more efficient, safer job than the Gubm’t.

No one cares when normal hardworking people lose their jobs…..there’s no message on your Capital One credit-card website offering “Help For Those Affected By Their Boss Being An Assh@le”,  so why do the 800,000, out of 4 million ( Oh my God are there that many? ) government workers – making an average of $90,000 a year with a lifetime pension and benefits – warrant this breathless and dramatic coverage? The last time you were unemployed….did Fox News and CNN do a “countdown clock” for how many days it lasted? Didn’t think so. You are being whipped into a frenzy by corrupt globalist corporations selling you outrage and fear.

Will it stop? Uhhh…..no. Will it come to a conclusion without civil conflict? In my opinion……no. Is there one outlet you can trust to tell you the truth, other than the Empire? Again….no.  So…..as the President caves in to the demands of the soulless left in an effort to appease the mob – while being betrayed by his confidants and the entirety of the republican party – while the 63+ million who voted for him cower in fear and refuse to stand up and defend themselves and their country, there is nothing left to do but enjoy the twelve years that Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez says we have left before the Earth boils us off its surface. Good thing full-term abortions and illegal immigration will continue unabated until that day, right? Yeah, right.

The Blue Drip

Well, election day has come and gone, and there was no “blue wave”. Sadly, there was a “blue drip”, and thanks to wealthy suburban white women, millennials, and those that vote based on their skin color, we can all look forward to 2 years of ramped up investigations, obstruction, resistance, and stagnation.

There are a couple of lessons to be learned from the midterm election results. One – if you’re a republican/Bushite/neocon and you didn’t embrace and defend Trump, you lose.  Two – democrat voters will vote based completely on race and Trump-hatred, without any clue about what their chosen candidate has in store for them.

It’s early, but so far only the community-organizer/Wisconsin native Stacey Abrams – the democrat gubernatorial candidate for Georgia – has refused to concede an obvious loss. My guess is she’ll cry “racism!” and demand to keep counting until the state DNC finds several forgotten boxes of uncounted votes that all go democrat. Abrams is truly a cancer in Georgia politics, and everyone reading this should be very afraid that she has even come close. She, along with Andrew Gillum in Florida, are the embodiment of running on racism and hate, Reverend Jeremiah Wright-style.

Stacey Abrams – GA Democrat for Governor

There is much talk about “working across the aisle” and “wanting unity” from voters when asked about what motivated their vote. To be quite honest, I find this attitude naïve, childish, and frankly stupid. There will be none of that crap. We don’t live in an America that does that anymore, and the reason isn’t “incivility on both sides”, it’s that one side wants to destroy, or let’s say “fundamentally transform” the country into a communo-socialist sh!thole, and the other wants to keep their culture and rule of law while holding a job, saving some money, and raising their kids. Can you guess which one of these groups is more motivated to march, protest, organize, and resist?

It’s not all bad news. It’s pretty historic that the democrat party didn’t sweep the House and the Senate. Trump’s power in the Senate has likely increased, and the democrat margin of victory in the House is pretty narrow.  So, it looks good for court nominees and avoiding impeachment, but it looks really bad for any new tax cuts, the wall, or any meaningful legislation. Expect the democrats to act as if their narrow margin is some kind of biblical mandate to assume as much power as they can get their dirty little hands on.

The truth is we’re going to have to see what happens over the next few weeks. There is a few months before power technically shifts, and during this time we’ll all see and hear what the left has in store for us. I am admittedly a pessimist, but I’ll give you my best-case scenario for the next two years: Hopefully Pelosi and the left will expose themselves as the fools and buffoons they truly are, and devolve even further into the black hole of identity and tribal politics, as well as into the madness of the college campus. Worst case : The street theatre and anarchist resistance of the left and the deep state elevates to an unsustainable level and America falls into open civil conflict – either on par with 1968, or God forbid, 1861. I guess we will all see what happens soon enough.

#ReleaseTheMemo

Be prepared. That’s really all I can say when it comes to #ReleaseTheMemo. When the document comes out there will be a hissy-fit of epic proportions, and if you think you’ve seen !PANIC! since November 8th, 2016……..you ain’t seen nothing yet. You may be one of those people who think all the insanity since Trump’s election was about him…..well, I’ve got bad news for you.  Just for educational purposes, let’s go over some of the major attempts to keep any of the sins of the past administration and it’s agents from ever coming to light.

Even before losing the election, the Clinton campaign – working hand-in-hand with the Obama administration, the DOJ, and the FBI ( Strzok’s “insurance policy” ) – concocted a false narrative of “Russian collusion” in order to smear, undermine, and lay the groundwork for handicapping the Trump administration. Then came Fusion GPS and their ficticious dossier.  Illegal spying, “unmasking”, and leaking were soon to follow.

Within days of the election, Hillary Clinton and the Globalist Progressive Left dubbed their opposition to Trump’s election as “the resistance” – immediately likening themselves to French partisans fighting the Nazis. If I need to explain to you why that’s ridiculous, and frankly offensive, please self-abort.

A public, celebrity-infused, campaign took place to unconstitutionally influence electors to not honor their responsibility to vote on behalf of their state.

A multi-million dollar operation was undertaken – by Prog Jill Stein – to force recounts in three states, based on “expert” testimony that voting machines “may be dysfunctional”, to delay and undermine the results of the election.

A media-driven, democrat endorsed, claim was pushed that Trump had violated the archaic “emoluments clause” of the Constitution, taking “gifts” from foreign nationals in exchange for favorable actions.

In an ongoing effort to undermine the new administration, hand-picked federal judges block, delay, and challenge each and every lawful action and order from the Executive branch.

Continuous Articles of Impeachment have been introduced by Progressive Democrat house members without cause or grounds.

There has been constant, irresponsible, adolescent behavior and statements from supposed adults in our elected, and unelected Government. Everything from claiming “white supremacy” by Senators – to Secret Service members saying they wouldn’t “take a bullet” for Trump, to cries of “fascism” by people who can’t define the word.

Let’s also not forget the pop culture, entertainment media complex and what it’s been up to. Has-beens holding up a severed Trump head. Singers who “have thought a lot about blowing up the White House”. Rappers shooting/killing Trump in videos and album “art”. Famous actors talking of “punching him in the face”, plays depicting an assassination, and seemingly never-ending awards shows that virtue-signal and cry “racism-sexism-white supremacy-fascist-blah-blah-blah”. All in an attempt to coarsen the public and create some kind of acceptance of the idea of assassination and removal. Movies, music, even late-night “comedians”, all reading the same talking points. If it’s not anti-Trump, it’s not on a screen.

There has also been a furious, non-stop Progressive Media assault that demonizes and slanders the Trump administration while covering up for Obama, Clinton, and their pals.

A continuous effort has been under way to paint the President as mentally, physically, and emotionally unfit…….proffered by Progressive Democrats and pushed by their willing partners in Media……all to attempt to lay the groundwork for removal under the 25th Amendment.

All of these things, and it’s not a complete list by any means, have one purpose: Undermine and subvert. Why? Because when the truth becomes known, Progressive Democrats will need hateful victims of their brainwashing in order to survive. There are millions of people who have been duped and deceived, and the panic on the faces of their representatives in Government when speaking of #ReleaseTheMemo is all you need to see. If you thought all of this was about Trump, boy have you been wrong.

Arguing Punctuation

I’m not the greatest writer. I use a conversational style that is incongruous with strict adherence to grammar and  structure, and as such my columns tend to convey a conversational tone. In theory, I am speaking to you much the same way that I would if we were sitting across from each other. The points I make are rooted in observable truth and common sense, so I get some leeway from my readers on style. My reasoning is simple: I would rather speak to you than condescend to you, because so much of what we consume as media is designed to be intentionally intellectually dishonest, and to obscure fact for the sake of ideology.

The last two years, leading all the way up to the election of Donald Trump, were a referendum on the behavior of the progressive left.  Regardless of which wing of the Uniparty you had claimed allegiance to, many of you knew that something was wrong. Sure, government has always been filled with self-serving oafs, power-mad dolts, and corrupt thieves…..and the public has yawned and complained, and then always gone back to sleep. The ridiculous things being discussed in entertainment and politics were just the same old-same old, and as long as none of it really mattered to your daily life, then who cared?

Then something began to happen during the Bush administration…….it was a partisanship  ratcheted up to a level we hadn’t seen before. Election recounts, inflammatory media opining in the place of news, a terror attack that changed the world, and a greedy, corrupt bureaucracy all too eager to use all of these things to encroach into every aspect of our lives- using emerging technologies to spy on each of us in the name of “Homeland Security”. The United States adopted the unfortunate philosophy of war as nation-building, instead of war for territory, resources, or defense. Many of us began to question the wisdom and motivations of those we had placed in charge over us, and Barack Obama used that, as well as once in a lifetime politically-correct race politics, to fulfill his lifetime quest for personal power.

What happened next was the antithesis of the supposedly-liberal candidate Obama’s platform…………..a continuation of the soft tyranny began by the originators of the modern “New World Order”, the Bush family. Instead of dissolving the Patriot Act, Obama used it as a personal attack mechanism. As Edward Snowden exposed to the world, now the security apparatus of the NSA was a tool to blackmail, spy, and destroy any who opposed the Imperial Executive and it’s overreach of power. At the same time, the media and entertainment communities started to buy what they were selling…..that we are all the uber-progressive left, that half of the public is gay, a minority, and a victim of some type of patriarchal, entrenched white power structure.

The decisions and policies of the party in power reflected the false logic of identity politics and moral equivocation……apology tours, promoting an islamic takeover of previously secular nations ( the much promoted and disastrous ‘Arab Spring” ), bowing to hostile foreign interests in the name of rejecting American hegemony, instituting an unconstitutional mandate for each citizen to purchase a specific product ( Obamacare ), and using speech codes and media cover to run an unwanted progressive domestic agenda roughshod over the public.  All to the clapping seals of The Two Coasts, media, and progressive academics.

The problem, by late 2014, was that Obama and others in government had done what people rabidly convinced of the validity of their position always do……….they reached too far. It’s one thing to ask people to accept policies they disagree with after those policies are presented and debated in the light of day, and another to obfuscate, lie and intimidate in order to pass an unwanted agenda that runs contrary to our national identity and sovereignty. Voting for the staus-quo became a non-starter for many………….. because it had become obvious that the left would continue its ruinous games, and that the right would continue to shrivel and shrink at the tiniest accusation of ( insert politically correct code word or social justice meme ).

Electing Trump was my only protest against the America I know continuing to become the America the progressives want.  As a fan of The Enlightenment, I value individual freedom above all else. The degeneration of personal freedom over the last decade or so is directly relative to the advancing agendas of the left, and is inexorably tied to the degeneration of personal responsibility and the concept of individual identity. The simple concepts of a national identity and culture, assimilation, defending and maintaining borders, non-interventionism, and personal freedom and responsibility have become toxic to the progressive movement………and their collective reaction to the centrist, moderate Trump are proof of it.  Only 8 years of an ideologue like Obama could make people respond to Trump the way that they are: Partisan bureaucrats, unelected and put in place by partisan democrats and neo-cons, are in open revolt against at what at any other time in history would be seen as a very moderate president.

I have yet to get an answer from any of my detractors or critics about what they are so adamantly resisting.  Who has lost their constitutional rights? Who has become a victim of this new president? It seems that being angry at the election requires one to operate on many provably false assumptions……that there are no differences in the people and cultures of the world, that nations can exist without borders, that citizenship can retain its value when it has no cost or definition, that catering education to the lowest-common-denominator produces smarter students, that there is such a thing as “free trade”, that lifetime politicians are smarter than you, and that using real fascism to prevent imaginary fascism is a righteous belief. Toss in some bullsqueeze like spending billions to make all public restrooms friendly to the mentally ill, “Russian hacking” claims from exposed corrupt politicians, endless social engineering in rejection to biology, and you get the prog’s thinking.

My advice to those that are angry would be to remove the beam from their own eyes before removing the speck from others. As long as there are those that think Trump’s conversational blunders and bad jokes are the problem instead of confederate “sanctuary cities” and 20 trillion in debt, we will hear their harping…….but we don’t have to listen anymore. When the devout progressive demands the same release of documents from their politicians, and transparency in their actions………not just Trump,  I  will believe them. When the mainstream media spends as much time questioning the sanity and senility of people like Nancy Pelosi, who called Trump “President Bush” and Maxine Waters, who in the same press conference claimed “Putin invaded, uh…..Korea”……or Hank Johnson – who asked an Admiral in the Navy if he was concerned about Guam “flipping over” due to the weight of an American Naval Base……then I will take seriously their reporting of Trump’s gaffes. When the left condemns concepts such as “hatespeech” and groups such as the “antifas” goons, I  will take  them seriously……..and when I get an argument about the content of what I have written instead of my punctuation, I’ll take that seriously, too.

There Aren’t Enough Clown Names

Just who are these people? I have spent a couple of weeks trying to discern the answer to this question. I’m sorry to say that even with what I consider judicious scrutiny, the “people’ who are running are government are seriously lacking in almost every way. We are led by a pack of freaks, and if they were sitting next to you on a park bench ( not that they would because none of them would willingly get that close to you unless you’re a lobbyist or prostitute, or both) you would quickly get up, check your wallet, and then douse yourself with hand sanitizer.

I find myself seriously wondering what the heck is going on. How did any of these weirdos get elected to what should be a very serious undertaking? It’s like being in the elevator with a dude that has really bad hairplugs. You’re thinking, ” Does homie have a mirror at home? How could he not know he looks like a Ken-Doll with half of its hair pulled out?” Well, not only does homie not know, he thinks you’re looking because he’s so hot. If you’ve never known someone who is truly deluded, look no further than Washington D.C..

When was the last time you saw a real person run for office? Off the top of my head I can think of just a couple of examples…. and if I’m not mistaken, none of them win. And if they do win, they are quickly pulled aside by the David Axelrods and Karl Roves of the world and told just where to squat and push. And if they can’t play ball, you say? Well then my guess is a photo of them in bed with a dead girl or live boy, or both, show up in the New York Times. And no, Anthony Weiner and Elliot Spitzer have not been set up, they’re just run-of-the-mill power mad sleazebags.

Let’s say you’re a blue collar guy or gal, you work hard, you pay your taxes, you try to follow most of the rules. Your Grandpa voted democrat, he was a good guy, so you do too. Besides, you’ve been told just how much these guys care about you….heck, they can really relate. Let’s take a look at a couple of these down to earth reps for the little guy ( and just hold on repubs, your paragraph comes next ). Let’s start with someone we all know, Nancy Pelosi. The Democrat Representative from California has a net worth of at least 24 Million Dollars. This includes a swanky California Vineyard that sells roughly half a million bucks worth of grapes every year. Yes, Nationalized Healthcare advocates, your champion could easily pay you and your family’s medical expenses forever off of the interest her dough makes. On to another stalwart of the little guy, or I should say gal, because everyone associates this next winner with Women’s Rights. It’s Senator Dianne Feinstein, Democrat from California, who is worth somewhere in the neighborhood of 41 Million dollars. And irony of ironies, her hubby is Dick Blum…. Prez and CEO of Blum Capital Partners LP, you know, one of those really evil private equity firms. Another prime example is of course the unflappable Senator Jay Rockefeller of West Virginia. He’s sliding into home this year with a net worth of about 83 Million. I’ve been to West Virginia, and I’m pretty sure that’s more Cheese than everyone else in the state put together. And here’s the really funny part. Most of that cheddar comes from family oil money. I’d be laughing if I could afford it.

But hold on there you so called “conservatives”….. I have a couple of examples for you too. You’ve seen alot of this guy on CSPAN lately, and he’s all vim, vigor and hair dye. It’s Darrell Issa, Republican Senator from California. He’s rollin’ Oprah style with at least 350 Million under the mattress. Hey, I thought California was broke? I’m sure out of good conscience all of these Statesmen and Women from Cali are stuffing their tax forms full of extra cash to help out the common peeps who pay the huge taxes levied on them in the Promised Land. Don’t hold your breath California, even though it would help the environment ’cause your exhale is now considered a pollutant, halitosis or no. Next stop, Senator Bob Corker, Republican from Tennessee. This good ‘ole boy from the Volunteer State is worth at least 16 million. I know people from Tennessee, and I’m pretty sure his bank account does not represent the average citizen of the state. Round it out with this year’s big loser, Rep. Michael McCaul, Republican from Texas. See, last year he was pulling about 300 million give or take, and he lost half of it. Now he’s only got 114 million to fall back on. Man, I bet there’s some sleepless nights at his estate wondering how he’s gonna keep the family fed. Guess it’s nothin’ but Hamburger Helper and Ramen Noodles for you, buddy. The only advantage the R’s have in this is at least they’re not on TV daily talking about how they can relate to the guy working the MickeyDee’s drivethru.

And let’s not forget the Executive Branch. Barry and Michelle are worth at least 11 million, respectively. For those under 25 enrolled in college, that’s about 22 million collectively. Just for kicks I wanted to work in John Kerry and his wife, Teresa, only because he’s getting by with about 194 million and she’s banking roughly 200 Million. Can you even imagine having that kind of money? And just why do any of these people actually work in government? Normal folks would probably take it easy after a ship like that comes in, but if your goal is true power, you know, the power to control all of us like pawns on a chessboard, you gotta keep goin’, man. Or maybe you are so deluded by your Party Affiliation that you just keep on defending your guy,’cause you think admitting that you’ve been suckered would be a huge blow to your ego. Or maybe, just maybe, you actually think they believe in what they’re selling. That they DO want to help you, that you do have an advocate in government. That they want “free” healthcare for you, or “clean” water and air. Or that they want you to be successful and prosperous, and to be able to achieve their level of wealth and power. If I just described you, then pardon me while I endlessly laugh and cry at the same time. Because not only do you have serious thinking problems, you are feeding the fleas and ticks that suck the lifeblood out of what was created by better men than we currently have in Washington.

Because no matter the Party, no matter the Cause, it’s a game to all of these Senators, Representatives, Presidents and Appointees. And you wanna know something? We don’t ever win. That’s why I prefer to think of it as a circus. A circus that has nothing but Clowns. The only problem I can see is…… There aren’t enough Clown Names.
