If Romney Gets 61% of the White People’s Vote, He Wins

That’s what he is aiming for.

 

The Reason the GOP is So Insistent on Voter Suppression

They can’t even run their own party elections right.

Remember, they screwed Santorum.  Remember they screwed up in Maine.  That’s just off the top of my head.  Why on earth do we elect them to take care of voting here in Texas when they can’t even secure the property?

Are They Really Catholics?

I’m only asking because that guy who inherited his Christianity through his father, Franklin Graham, isn’t so sure that President Obama isn’t a secret Muslim.

I thought Newt and Rick were Catholics.  All the Catholics I work with (and there are more than a few) had ashes on their foreheads today.  Aren’t Catholics supposed to leave the ashes on until they wear off or do both of those guys secretly have one of these?

I’m thinking neither of them did it.

I’m thinking they care about Ash Wednesday about as much as they cared about MLK Jr. Day.

Amazingly, the Republicans Kept Their Own in Line

It probably helped that the conservative SCOTUS people skipped it.  I’m sure they had better things to do.

The old white guys on the channel I was watching immediately complained about taxes.  Sigh.  Poor little old white guys pay more in taxes that most people earn from their labor.  When will this get old?

It’s clear that they only listened to what applied to them.  It’s also clear that they think everyone listening to them are JUST LIKE THEM when it is clear that is not true.

Mitch (Arab) Daniels was just terrible.  I can’t believe that he said that the president’s family was an “example that was needed” or some such.  Oh, really Mitch, given your family issues?  Really?  Perhaps all blacks should follow your model.  ASSHOLE.

OMG Radio’s Stupidest Picture

Radio, mostly talk radio, is well known for its idiotic portraits, but this one takes the cake:

Does this have doofus written all over it or what?  There is nothing worse than a hanger-on know nothing about music person wearing a shirt that shows he knows nothing about music.   This is embarrassing.

And to think this idiot has people who hang on his every word every day, from early in the morning to late in the evening.  If his boy Rick Perry had done better, he would probably be doing better.  As it is, his book will never be published, he will remain a clown and my god, he will be an idiot.

I challenge even Kevin Whited to explain this photo to me.  Kevin?  Cory?

All I Have to Say about the Republican Debate

Just flip to ABC and see that we’re now down to the serious  white guys.

That didn’t take long, did it?

I Call Bullshit

Some wanker in Georgia is getting his 15 minutes of fame:

WACO, Ga. — A west Georgia business owner is stirring up controversy with signs he posted on his company’s trucks, for all to see as the trucks roll up and down roads, highways and interstates:

“New Company Policy: We are not hiring until Obama is gone.”

“Can’t afford it,” explained the employer, Bill Looman, Tuesday evening. “I’ve got people that I want to hire now, but I just can’t afford it. And I don’t foresee that I’ll be able to afford it unless some things change in D.C.”

Looman’s company is U.S. Cranes, LLC.  He said he put up the signs, and first posted pictures of the signs on his personal Facebook page, six months ago, and he said he received mostly positive reaction from people, “about 20-to-one positive.”

But for some reason, one of the photos went viral on the Internet on Monday.

And the reaction has been so intense, pro and con, he’s had to have his phones disconnected because of the non-stop calls, and he’s had to temporarily shut down his company’s website because of all the traffic crashing the system.

Looman made it clear, talking with 11Alive’s Jon Shirek, that he is not refusing to hire to make some political point; it’s that he doesn’t believe he can hire anyone, because of the economy. And he blames the Obama administration.

I know what it is like to operate without enough people.  I also know what it’s like to try to run something without enough qualified people.  This joker is just that:  a joker.  If he needs more workers to make his business profitable, he would hire anyone he could get, just like my department has.  ANYONE.  We are so desperate we are hiring retired people.

He obviously doesn’t have enough work for the people he’s got employed.  He obviously is fishing for business.

I know what it is like to operate without enough good people.  This guy is NOT doing that.

Wanker.

It’s the Little Things

. . . that make me happy.

First, the bad son next door was booted out by the larger family after the old man — my friend — was found down by the bayou in the wee hours of the morning by cops.  Last straw, as it were.  I was so relieved when I heard the news.  Yesterday evening, a couple of family members took the old guy out for a walk.  He was clean and well dressed, cared for, unlike how the bad son had treated him.  It was good to see.

The mommy kitten has returned.  I hope she stays around.  The three girls who are left seem much happier since the fence went in.  No their only trouble is the crazy squirrels.  If Tilly ever caught one, I don’t know what she would do with it.  I doubt she ever will because Baby Girl always joins in late and is not a very good hunter and ruins it all.

I planted lettuce from seeds I collected from the last crop.  It’s all in the new-ish bed left from the fence experience.  I’ve got mint and onion seeds incubating inside.

The PBS series Prohibition is very good.

Republicans are getting all race-y in their in-fighting.  They can try to hang this on the press or the president, but I think they are going to piss a lot of people off.

And then there’s WHITE HISTORY MONTH.  How do you celebrate?

HA HA HA Hate to Say I told You so . . .

Is Chris Christy getting into the mix since Republican teabaggers are not so happy about Rick Perry?  If Chris Christy gets in will Mike Huckabee get in?

It’s a race of chicken for them and Sarah Palin.  The one who hangs out to the very last will be the “Savior” of the country.  Who will drive that car to the end?  I don’t care because it’s gonna be Mittens the dog torturer anyway, but hey, the ride is fun, especially watching the media slobber over each in turn.  I’m looking at you Judy.

Keep It Focused on Policy

It’s a well worn refrain with Republicans these days, these days since President Obama was elected.

Why is it then that that this focus always falls on African-Americans?  It is the excuse given by all of talk radio from Limbaugh on down to the morning Joes we have here in Houston.  Dick Cheney took particular aim at two people in his book — the only two African-Americans in Bush’s cabinet.

Draw your own conclusions.  I’ve drawn mine.
