Let’s start with the picture. An elephant walking into the sunset. That about sums it up for me. The GOP seems to just be wandering off kind of aimlessly. Of course, the elephant could always turn around and fight, defend its territory, but it looks like it’s just going to lumber off to lie down somewhere comfy. The metaphor should be obvious.
So, let’s not count on the GOP to do anything useful beyond having an email list that can get us in contact with likeminded people. That’s about it. Oh…there might be a few party planners and event organizers in there too. But if you’re looking for action and steely resolve? If you want someone in DC to actively defend your freedom? You’ll have better luck checking the mirror first, or maybe Rand Paul’s house.
Ok, so here’s my heads up/opinion piece of things that are out of whack and are quite irritating today.
The fake Ted Cruz “scandal.” Go fuck yourself. I have gone out of my way not to give this bullshit any fuel. To even suggest that Ted Cruz going to Cancun comes CLOSE to what Cuomo did in NY is insulting. It legit looks like Cuomo’s policies killed thousands and furthermore it looks like he covered it up. We’re supposed to be upset with Cruz? Go fuck yourself. Sorry media people, I won’t be falling for the, “Hey! Look over there! Be mad at that other thing!”.
One of the most disturbing things about the whole Cuomo scandal is the assist he’s getting from the media. The awards. The book deal. The accolades. Holy shit. That’s deeply disturbing to put it mildly.
The Supreme Court and the election of 2020. More insanity. Here’s my layman’s breakdown as I understand it. Certain states like Pennsylvania made big changes to their election laws WITHOUT going through the legislative process. All under under the pretense of “making the election safe because of COVID.” They just changed the way the process worked WITHOUT actually adhering to state law. The GOP sued. Took it all the way to the Supreme Court. Justice Roberts said the Court didn’t want to get involved and kicked the case out. WTF?
Next comes this doozy. GOP lawyers go back to the courts after the election because they have a legit beef with how states just made up new election law willy nilly. It’s hard to even call it a law, because it never went through the process! It’s a fucking election decree. We don’t do those. This is America. Well, the Supreme Court again refused to hear the case. I guess because they’re saying some shit like “the case is moot” and the election is over. Again WTF?
Here’s a link to Justice Thomas’s dissent. Worth a read.
Now let’s bitch about the new stimulus…or lack thereof. This is the big one for me. This is the total and complete failure of government. That these morons cannot pass a clean bill that ONLY deals directly with COVID tells me everything. They simply are unable to meet the challenge. They are political buffoons. That they consistently use a lever of political change is one of the most horrifying things I think I’ve ever witnessed.
IF COVID is soooooo insanely dangerous that people cannot go to work, what is the hold up on getting us OUR tax dollars back so we can eat? IF it’s THAT FUCKING DIRE, why would we wait? Why would we fund ANYTHING else? IF people are dying left and right why in the name of all that’s holy would you fund ANYTHING ELSE? ANYTHING? A museum? A tunnel? Gender studies in Pakistan? The list goes on and on. This should be a huge wake up call for EVERY American. THEY DO NOT CARE IF YOU LIVE OR DIE! That’s a fucking problem people. That’s a HUGE FUCKING PROBLEM!
Coke went off the rails this week too. This whole critical race theory is complete and total horse crap and corporations jumping on board is not good. Go make me a soda and don’t shove your half baked social science theory down the throat of your employees. You’ve lost the plot completely. How about we treat everyone as equals? How about we judge someone by the content of their character and not the color of their skin? How about we stop looking for equity of outcomes? How about we just go with all men are created equal? Kind of remember someone writing that down somewhere.
