Arkansas Oil SpillThis is not the Gulf. No shrimp, oysters, sea trout, king mackerel, red snapper or sharks were harmed in the making of this disaster. This is someone’s yard in Arkansas, where their children used to play.

It’s not just the oil. The toxins that remain once it’s all prettified should keep the kids out of that sandbox until they are grandparents.

Hillary wants us to ignore her record on the Keystone XL pipeline. Though, as Secretary of State, it was in her bailiwick, she doesn’t have an opinion — or doesn’t want us to know that opinion. She’s hoping Obama will hurry up and take the blame.

Euro DominosGreece cannot fall all by itself. It likely will bring the end of the Eurozone and create significant problems for the US. The Eurozone is a noble experiment but it is run by an international cartel of incompetents. [click to continue…]

MerkelTemper, temper, Angela.

Ms. Merkel  certainly should be aware of 20th Century German history. It is ironic that Germany, of all governments, would be demanding debt repayment. Greek debt is a pittance compared to Germany’s forgiven debt following The Great War and WWII.

Even Great Britain and France have not always honored their debts. But, Greece is a smaller country, of course. It isn’t yet time for the small and the weak to inherit the Earth.

Here in the US, Americans are mostly confused about the potential ramifications of what is cutely termed, Grexit, to the extent they care at all. Surely, it’s a European problem. We’re the good old US of A. It doesn’t concern us at all. WRONG answer. [click to continue…]

ScaliaChronic anger and senility are not an attractive mix. The body politic is burdened with the embarrassment of this robed buffoon.

This is a sociopath that judges a rabid, an abject devotion to a ridiculous ideology is a substitute for thinking. Nay, he considers it actual thinking.

This intellectually deficient clown is often referred to as the intellect of the right. Really? How so? Because he tells everyone that he is. In that regard, Newt is a serious rival. In actuality, he is a ranting, raving idiot.

To quote this self-ordained mastermind, “Words no longer have meaning,” He then proceeds to inflict upon us a lengthy harangue. Ironically, it was composed of a confusion of words; some of those selfsame ‘meaningless’ words. [click to continue…]

Democrats In Danger

Not UsThe Democrats don’t give a damn about us but they still will be surprised when they discover far more of their base sitting on their hands on election day.

Obama insists on pushing the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP). Given the evidence of such accords in the recent past, even more jobs will flow to countries that treat their people not much better than industrial farms treat chickens. At least they don’t pump them full of hormones and antibiotics.

Obama has no reason to feel lonely up there in the Beltway. Congressmen, both Democrats and Republicans, both right and righter, are hard at work decimating the middle class. It seems to be their only realm of competence. Congress truly earned their 11% approval rating. [click to continue…]

Illegals

T hey could go by many names. The 47 clowns. The 47 idiots. The 47 racists. The 47 bozos. The 47 incompetents. The 47 nincompoops. Take your choice. Or, I would suggest we refer to them at The Illegals. It’s appropriate.

Cake EatenFirst, a few warnings. This article is on economics, the justly termed ‘dismal science.’ True, it’s not all that entertaining but it is worthwhile.

It is my longest post ever, 4 to 5 times as long as usual. Still, it merits everyone’s attention. Lastly, I didn’t write it. Aaah. My apologies.

It is a cut-and-paste of the full article by Paul Rosenberg that appeared in Salon. Given the tremendous research and effort he put into this, he deserves his own audience.

Stock buybacks are not usually tagged as the prime corrupter of the economy but what follows makes a strong case. There are other factors, most, if not all, reinstituted by Saint Ronnie but ultimately derived from the most simpleminded and wrongheaded economic and political theories known to man. Enjoy.

EgoWhen federal law is violated, it is the responsibility of the  Attorney General to indict those violating the law. That seems simple enough. There should be no question.

But, will Eric Holder indict the 47 senators scofflaws that, in their contempt for the Constitution, the law, the president and the nation, arrogantly demonstrated their ignorance of the Constitution, the law and their role as “public servants.”

Since our “servants” in Washington see both themselves and their putative adversaries as some special breed, it is exceedingly rare for any to be subjected to the laws, as we, their subjects, are.

Many have lately thrown around the term ‘traitor.’ I don’t consider these clowns much above qualifying for that but, as we are not actively engaged in a war, as delineated by the Constitution, there can be no treason. However, they are illegals. [click to continue…]

Coward CokerHere I was, all ready to write letters of thanks to the two senators from my home state. Silly me.

Why would I even contemplate such an uncharacteristic act? I saw where Senators Coker and Lamar Alexander were among the seven Republican members of the Senate that did not sign the outrageous letter to the leadership of Iran. Traitorous may be a bit hyperbolic — but barely.

Initially, I felt that since I could not remember ever agreeing with either on any issue and had trashed them only a couple of the numerous times they deserved it, I was prepared to congratulate them for remaining rational and refusing to sign the letter.

Forty-seven idiots signed that unparalleled conflation of hubris, misinformation and stupidity. The ringleader was Baby Senator Tom Cotton, a wet-behind-the-ears clown from Arkansas that appears to consider himself knowledgeable about a broad range of subjects, despite his demonstrable monumental and comprehensive ignorance.

Entitlements Of Incompetents

Prescott BushIs this what Benjamin Franklin was referring to? When Mrs. Powel asked,  “Well, Doctor, what have we got, a republic or a monarchy?” With no hesitation whatsoever, Franklin responded, “A republic, if you can keep it.”

The two forms of governing are a monarchy and a republic. The former is hereditary. The other is not.

John Adams served fairly well as our second president. His son, John Quincy Adams, was our 5th president. John Quincy served his father and country in so many capacities that many historians consider him the most qualified of all presidential candidates. Further, he is touted as the most intelligent person to serve in that office. Until the Bush family contaminated our body politic, they were the only ones to flirt with the concept of monarchy. Flirt is not the proper word. Both were staunch believers in the republican form. Their service was not due to the seeking of power nor was it the progeny of ego. Now, we have devolved to the Bush and Clinton families.
