More Stupid Government!

The Texas Supreme Court has ruled that the State of Texas was wrong to take more than 400 children from their parents in the Polygamists case. Apparently, the justices were wise enough to realize that for the state to separate more than 400 children from their parents based on an anonymous phone call was a tad overboard. The state claims that older men were having sex with very young women and having children by several women. Several girls under 16 were reported to have children 2 or 3 years old. All of this was alleged to happen under the auspices of the church. How could this happen?

I'm guessing that the polygamists are modeling their behavior after the example that the government sets. Yes, the government. Go to a housing project in any large city and you can see the same stuff. Older men having sex with young girls who are having babies at young ages. The projects are full of men who have children by several women without the benefit of marriage. At least the polygamists went to the trouble of getting married. Is the State of Texas storming housing projects seizing children and giving DNA tests to determine parentage? Of course not, that would be illegal. You have to belong to some religious sect to lose your rights. At least they didn't attack the polygamists using the Waco technique.

Is "Stupid Government" redundant??

Is the phrase "stupid government" redundant? Let's look at a few examples.

In Canton, Ohio, best known as the home of the Pro Football Hall of Fame, the City Council is considering an ordinance making not mowing your lawn a misdemeanor. Yes, a $250 fine and 30 days in jail for allowing your grass to be more than 8 inches high. Apparently the Green movement has not reached Canton. Canton must be the safest place in the country to live if this is the biggest threat facing the city.

In Tampa, Florida, the General Manager of WTVT Fox 13, was arrested and charged with lewd and lascivious behavior. Robert Linger was also charged with exposing a sexual organ. Linger and five other men were arrested at an adult bookstore by undercover officers monitoring the store for illegal activities. Allegedly, Mr. Linger and the other five men formed a circle around the undercover officers and began masturbating. The undercover officers allege that the six pointed their loaded weapons towards the officers. It must have been a slow day for crime in Tampa. Of course, Tampa used to be known as the Cigar City. Make of that what you will. The City of Tampa has been laying off employees due to a budget crunch. While not an expert on law enforcement, I will hazard a guess that the Circle Jerk Patrol is expendable and should be included in the next round of layoffs.

Closer to home, the Greensboro News and Record told us last week that the mayor does not believe that "the iron fist" is the right approach to the gang problem. Maybe she's right. Let's start by inviting all of the thugs in for cookies and milk. Then we can try the "midnight basketball" thing again.

Note to Barack Obama: None of this is about you.

It's an Obama-centric world!!

A couple of weeks ago, Obama got upset by remarks made by President Bush in Israel about a U.S. senator's comments about Hitler. Apparently, anytime the President speaks about a U.S. senator, he is speaking about Obama. I'm not sure that "ego-centric" goes far enough to describe his condition. Bad news Barry, there have been other senators before you, there are 99 others currently holding the job, and rumors that others will hold the position in the future. I don't know about the President, but rest assured that I will mention you by name when talking shit about you! I'm eliminating the need for you and your lap dogs in the press to strain themselves linking every remark to attempts to slander you.

I can't believe this, but I find myself having to defend Hillary Clinton's recent remarks about the assassination of Robert Kennedy. Her remarks were promptly linked to Obama by the Obama-centric universe of reporters. How does mentioning that RFK was killed in June have anything to do with Obama?? If she had mentioned that George Wallace was shot in May, would that have been linked to Obama? John Kennedy was killed in November, will Obama find this fact enough to have the election moved to October or December??

Obama, it's all about you!!

Do you want to be Vice-President?

The Hill newspaper asked all 97 Senators who are not running for President the same question, “If you were asked, would you accept an offer to be the VP nominee?” I picked some of the best answers and have quoted them.

Sen. John Barrasso (R-Wyo.)
“We already have a vice president from Wyoming. So we’ll have to see if Sen. McCain asks me to chair his selection committee. That seems to work well. It certainly seemed to work well for the last guy from Wyoming.”

Sen. Lamar Alexander (R-Tenn.)
“I know already who it will be: the man in charge of the search. There’s no need for me to respond. That’s how you get to be vice president.”

Sen. Roger Wicker (R-Miss.)
“The chances of that are so remote that I’m more likely to be hit by an asteroid.”

Sen. Judd Gregg (R-N.H.)
“No. I don’t like going to funerals.”

Sen. Bob Bennett (R-Utah)
“Of course. Big house, big car, not much to do. Why not?”

Sen. Larry Craig (R-Idaho)
“I would say ‘No, Hillary.’ ”

Throw the bastards out!!!

This is a big election year in the United States. We are electing a President, the entire House Of Representatives, one third of the Senate, several governors, and thousands of local officials.

All of these elected officials work for us. It's time to hire some new employees!!
Look at the issues that are important to you and see what your officials have done to address these issues. If they have done nothing, it's time to terminate their employment. I'm not interested in excuses or political explanations. If you are an elected official and have failed to address the issues that are facing us, your ass is out of here!!

Look at our current problems and ask yourself, "Will I put up with this shit for two more years?" If your answer is NO, throw the bastards out. We could elect thousands of mental midgets and be in no worse condition than today.

Let's look at third party candidates and see if there is any hope there. Obama talks about change in Washington. Maybe he's right. Let's find some folks who aren't Democrats or Republicans. Those two groups have been lying to us and screwing us for more than 100 years. Let's give someone else a chance. Can we do any worse???

California Dreaming??

The California Supreme Court ruled in favor of gay marriage yesterday. The court decided that it is discriminatory to require that marriage be between a man and a woman. Perverts everywhere are dreaming of life in California! California, where a man and a sheep can exchange vows. California, where a woman's best friend can be a dog. California, where half the kids will have two mothers or two fathers. U-Haul is probably flooded with reservations for California bound gays now. Beware of any pulling horse trailers.

If it is discriminatory to require that marriage be between a man and a woman, it is discriminatory to require that they be of a certain age?

Can't we just expel this state from the Union? Forget Mexico! Let's try putting up that border fence somewhere in the Rockies. Maybe the next earthquake will just cut them loose from the continent and let them float out to sea.

In the news this morning, Ellen DeGeneres announced that she and her lover will soon wed. Maybe this is what it is all about, TV ratings.

Note to gay folks everywhere, once you start paying child support and alimony when your dream marriages end, you will be leaving California.

Good news for Hillary and more

The Breck Girl, AKA John Edwards, came out yesterday. Now that your mind is working in the wrong direction, the Breck Girl came out yesterday for Barack Obama. Yes, in a move waited for by almost all of the thirteen Iowa Democrats who supported him, John Edwards endorsed the candidacy of Barack Obama. Now the rumors are flying that the Democratic ticket will be Obama-Edwards. Republicans should be so lucky. It would be difficult to find two Senators who have done less in their time in Washington than this pair of clowns.

Closer to home, three criminals have been charged and a fourth is being sought in connection with a string of break-ins in nearby Burlington, NC. The suspects are from the Greensboro area. From the News & Record coverage of the arrests comes this jewel. "Investigators have not found a clear motive as to why the group was targeting homes in Burlington other than a desire to commit a crime away from their hometown." Time to realize that we can't salvage all the members of our society. It may be time to bring back penal colonies. We can just start air dropping them over Cuba.

An article online this morning called John McCain the "savior of the Republican party." One of us doesn't understand the meaning of "savior".

With no one else running, McCain can't get more than 75% of the votes in the Republican primaries. The word isn't savior, it's PROBLEM. If the Demoncrats run Obama and the Republicans run McCain, this is THE year to be a third party candidate. There is an opening for a conservative in the race.

In Guilford County, voters recently approved more than $100 million in bonds to build a new jail. Frankly, I can't believe that a few acres of land, some government surplus tents, a few rolls of barbed wire, and a handful of dogs would cost that much. Who gives a rat's ass if the guys caught breaking into your house are comfortable?? Prison should be such a miserable experience that no one wants to go back.

In shocking news, the North Carolina Community College system has decided that illegal immigrants cannot be admitted. Finally someone in government has grasped what "illegal" means. This is just in time as Democratic candidate for governor, Bev Perdue, is promising FREE tuition at Community Colleges. North Carolina is already one of the cheapest states in the country for college education. No word from Ms. Perdue as to how much more the taxpayers will be fleeced to support this idea.

Eat or Drive???

As the price of food skyrockets, much of the increase is attributed to the cost of fuel in shipping the food. The rising price of food is also blamed on the risng costs of corn and other grains. They are being diverted for ethanol and bio-diesel fuels. At the current rate, it won't be long before we have fuel, but no food to ship. I just don't think that this makes sense. I would rather eat than drive. How about you?

Attention Congress!! How Far?

How far is the United States Congress out of touch with reality?
I can't answer this one in a day, but let's start with a couple of examples.

Gasoline is up about a $1.00 a gallon so far this year. If your congressman has introduced any legislation addressing this, send me their name now. Congress is waiting for Bush to act, while Bush waits for the market to act, while the market waits for Congress to act. Here's a thought. Somebody, anybody, get off your ass and do something!! How far down the toilet does the economy go before somebody in government takes action? These people are so unconcerned that they are doing NOTHING in an election year. Reward them by voting for someone else.

Rep. Paul Broun, R-Georgia, has introduced legislation to end the sale of Playboy, Penthouse, etc. to soldiers at base exchanges overseas. Let's see, we're fighting two wars, people dying, government spending out of control, economy in the toilet, no need to mention edukashon, and Broun wants to end the sale of skin magazines? I'm thinking that this is pretty low on my list of problems. Paul, why not take a shot at something a little more pressing?

McCain, Clinton, Obama, and others have all spoken about a gas tax holiday. Has anyone introduced any legislation? Hello! You are all Senators, this is in your job description!

Here are a few other ideas for legislation for our resting congressmen.

Everybody talks about the trade deficit with China. I think that we are all in agreement that there is a problem. How about some solutions?

Illegal immigrants, heard of them? How about some action before the Senate Dining Room starts serving burritos and refried beans?

NAFTA, CAFTA, SHAFTA! How about some trade legislation that works? Ross Perot was right, all we can hear is that big sucking sound.

Taxes. Could we cut the load a little for people who actually have jobs and earn incomes? No need to cut taxes for people who don't pay them.

Social Security, the world's biggest Ponzi scheme is unsound (Surprise?). We need relief soon, at least by the time I get there.

These are a few starting points for you clowns spending our money. Call when you do something of value!!

Eggheads and African-Americans????

There's trouble in paradise!! The Democratic Party is tearing itself apart trying to decide whether Obama or Clinton should be the nominee for President. Paul Begala, Democratic strategist, said that they need support from more than "eggheads and African-Americans" to win. He suggests that Hillary has this support while Barack is still working on it. The real story is what they are all dancing around but not discussing, the racism in the electorate. Hillary is getting around 60% of the white vote while Obama is getting more than 90% of the black vote. If Hillary was getting 90% of the white vote, the news would be filled with tales of whites and racism. Obama IS getting more than 90% of the black vote yet no mention of racism. Why not? Liberals are always wanting to have frank and open discussions about race, let's start here. Let's face it, blacks are voting for Obama because he's black. Deciding issues based on one's race is the definition of racism. Are black Democrats racists???

Democrats and hypocrisy

"Dem-o-crat"- From the Greek word for hypocrite
Democrats and hypocrisy go together like peanut butter and jelly. Here's the latest and best example: Because the Democrats in both Michigan and Florida moved up the dates of their presidential primaries, the national party is not allowing delegates from those two states to be seated at the Democratic convention in Denver this summer. This is the same Democratic party that since 2000 has been claiming that the Republicans disenfranchised thousands of voters so that George W. Bush could win in Florida. The proof of that claim has yet to be established in any independent study. Am I confused or are the Democrats disenfranchising two states and ALL of their Democratic voters? If this condition does not change, will Democrats in Florida and Michigan bother to go to the polls in November and vote for the Democratic candidate?? Let's hope not!

I Love stupid people- The DRMS version

The DRMS is the government agency responsible for selling military surplus. They used to handle this all by themselves but a few years ago they contracted with a private company to handle sales to the public. This actually makes it much easier to buy surplus than it used to be. Surplus is divided into different classifications before selling. Some items cannot be sold and are destroyed. They don't let you buy bombs, nuclear submarines, and that kind of stuff. Now the morons at the DRMS have added camouflage clothing to this classification. Yes, camo clothing and gear are now destroyed rather than sold. How do the guys at the DRMS walk with their heads so far up their asses? You can buy the same stuff brand new in thousands of places but the government can't sell it because of "national security? To what kind of mindless bureaucrat would this make sense? Let's throw it away rather than recoup part of the taxpayers' money? What kind of thought process is this??

Since I buy and sell some of this stuff, I have received several notices lately. If I still have some of this stuff, they want me to return it so they can destroy it. What part of "sold" is it that the government doesn't understand?? I didn't buy this from them on a consignment basis. Can I return other junk that I bought and can't sell and get my money back? Of course not, it's a one way street. Hats(not camo of course) off to the DRMS, this week's Dumbass champions.
