The covid relief bill passed!

Well…just last night, the senate passed the covid relief bill that takes care of many people who have been destroyed by the pandemic, but of course, not one damn repub voted for it even though the latest polls show that 76% of the entire country supports it…and even 66% of repubs supported it….so again, who the hell are they supposed to be representing? Just on cue, McConnell sent out a big gripe letter with the usual talking points…it’s too expensive, it’s full of things not related to covid, the extension of UI benefits will make people not work…yadda, yadda…hey Moscow mitch….you didn’t bitch at all when you repubs passed that expensive tax cut of 2.0 trillion dollars that only went to the rich so you can just shut the hell up right now. The biggest complaint that the repubs have is that it actually helps Americans and they don’t give a damn about the American people at all and they are pissed that they couldn’t get more tax cuts for the rich included in this bill. Now this bill does include the 1400 dollar payment to people making less than 75K a year so I will get the entire 2 grand relief payment…but that is not why I like this bill…it is an example of what government can accomplish to move the people of this country forward and make it a just a little easier for everyday people…and that is another reason why the repubs hate it…geez…

The crap gets deeper for trump and his cronies…

Well…this one made me grin…just this morning, Rep Eric Swalwell filed suit against the idiot boy, donnie jr., rep Mo Brooks, and rudy for inciting the riot that endanger the lives of the police and members of congress…and he did it as private citizens so the idiot boy and mo brooks can’t hide behind and get their lawyers paid for by the government….and he is asking for damages for the mental anguish and danger the idiot squad put them in when they incited the riot at the “rally” the morning of Jan 6th…if this one goes to trial, there is going to be discovery where all of their phone and other records have to be surrendered to the plaintiffs…and they are going to have to sit down to be questioned on why they lied to the mob to get them to attack the capital. This is the second suit to be filed against these morons by a member of congress and these are going to tie them up in court for years and cost them hundreds of thousands of dollars…if they can even find anyone to defend them…couldn’t happen to a worse bunch of assholes…

The worst kind of pay for play…

Well…we all know how terrible the repubs are…there is not a good person in that whole bunch and Ron DeSantis, the governor of Florida is one of that basket’s most rotten apples…since vaccines have been available, ole Ron has been making sure that his rich, white buddies got to the front of the line, taking vaccines that were meant for poor, minority areas and essentially selling them to¬† his buddies to enrich his re-election fund…and he had his best fundraising month ever in February, raising 2.7 million dollars and not a dime of it was from the repub rank and file…one rich white guy even gave him a check for a quarter of a million dollars after DeSantis got him a place in line for the vaccine. Now in any other political era this would have spelled doom for any candidate or politician to stiff the poor from the protection of the vaccine but in these times where nothing is too low for any repub politician, they just don’t care about anyone who didn’t vote for them. I wonder if there is a bottom to all of this corruption? Okay, yeah, stupid question…where there repubs are involved all there is a black hole that has not bottom and they are in a race to the bottom…geez…

I guess the repubs don’t represent anyone…

Well…yeah, I’m really late today and it has just been from busy work around here…oh, and I did get 10 miles in on the bike today for the first time in 6 weeks and that felt good…but, that’s not what this is about…as you know, or I hope you do, the dems have been trying to put together a covid relief plan that would get the economy working for everyone again and it includes some more direct payments along with money to help cities, states, and struggling businesses and help pay to re-open schools….the latest polls say the even 59% of repubs really like the bill and want it passed along with enough dems and independents tot get the support to over 70%…so, what are the repubs that represent these 70% of the country doing? Yep, doing everything they can in the senate to derail it and stop it’s passage….so who the hell do these repubs represent? If 70% of the country want this bill passed and the repubs aren’t going to help, I guess we need to look for who they really represent…and this time it’s not even business since even the damn Chamber of Commerce wants it passed…so who? I don’t think it’s anyone but their own little shitty brains that have only one mode left…oppose anything the dems want even it it will hurt the country and it’s popular…so, we need to make them pay in 2022….what a bunch of assholes…

Josh Hawley should just shut the hell up…

Well…another spectacle in the senate today when one of the chief insurrectionists, Josh Hawley, was questioning the FBI chief Chris Wray about the January 6th attack on the capital…first, why the hell did they let one of the people responsible for the attack question anyone? You remember ole Joshie…the smug little prick who gave the raised fist salute to the attackers of the capital just before the attack began? And who was one of 9 repub senators who tried to overturn the legal results of the election? One interesting line of questioning was when ole Joshie asked if there were cell tower records of the day in question and if there were social media records for that day, too, and Joshie asking for that information sounds to me that he is really worried that he is going to show up in that data with either a phone call to the attackers or cell data that would show he met with some of them before the attack. I really do hope they have that data and find that little shit in it…he deserves a felony charge for conspiracy if he does…keep sweating Joshie…

If you didn’t already know….

Well…I’m back for a political one…not sure if you know but the big conservative hate fest called CPAC was held in Florida over the weekend, and the speakers were pretty consistent with all of them spewing the same old election lies that the election was “stolen” from the idiot trump and that the attack on the capital was done by antifa and BLM and they were just disguised as trump supporters…yadda, yadda….but, within all of the lies was a tiny kernal of truth of the fascist nature of the modern repub party….if you take a look at the main stage and it’s shape you can see that it is a little familiar to those of us who have had an interest in WWII….it was shaped like the “Odal rune” that was used on Nazi SS uniforms in WWII and is widely used by white supremacists in both the US and Europe…so now we know where the modern repub party stands…okay, we knew it was a white supremacist party and hates anyone who is not a white person but damn, trump has unleashed these folks with his “fine people on both sides” bs he pulled after the Charlottesville hate riots….how can this country not see that? Geez….

Hypocrites…for the umpteeth time…

Well…back to politics….damn, I know I call the repubs hypocrites a lot…because they are…and that is shown again with the hearings for the Education Secretary nominee, Miguel Cardona, who is currently the education commissioner of Conn and who was a classroom teacher and has kids in public school…but, nine of the senators who are not going to vote for him, voted for the completely unqualified Betsy DeVos whose only ties to education in any form was to fund efforts to wreck public school education here in Michigan and give lots of money to repub candidates. Gee, I wonder if this opposition is in any way related to the fact that Cardona is Hispanic and his parents came from Puerto Rico? I’m sure that’s part of it but I think a big part is that the repubs hate anyone who is an expert and actually know something about the department he is going to head and will make a difference for kids here in the US….after all, if Cardona could make the public schools here better, there would be little hope for expanding the for profit charter schools that seem to be the darling of the free enterprise folks…or all damn repubs. Why do the repubs hate our kids so much? Just a bunch of damn hypocrites….but we all know that….

Holy crap…this is big!

Well….wow, big news today that has to have the idiot trump shaking in his boots…the supreme court just ruled that prosecutors in New York can have the 8 years of tax returns that they subpoenaed related to a tax fraud case they are building against him….and in addition to the bank records they already have, trump is almost sure to lose everything and probably end up in jail since he has spent his entire life cheating on his taxes. Now, we won’t be able to see any of them until the trials start since they are being released under grand jury rules but they will come out…and then the entire world will know how much of a loser trump is….and I’m sure this is going to snare his criminal kids, too…couldn’t happen to a more deserving bunch…

Nope, nope, and nope…

Well….don’t repubs ever get tired of stealing from the American taxpayer? Just this morning, a rep from Texas was on one of the morning shows, when Dana Bash asked him about the egregious price gouging that was going on with both the electricity and gas markets in his home state that have left hundreds of thousands of people with 10,000 dollar electric bills for one week…due to the unregulated power markets that are a feature of Texas….and this idiot had the gall to say that they don’t have to worry about these astronomical bills since FEMA is going to have money to pay them…and my response is nope, nope, and nope! These bills are all fake and don’t reflect any increased costs for any of the power companies but is the result of power companies buying laws that gift them the power to outright steal in the time of increased demand and there is no damn way that FEMA or taxpayers should be paying for what is just an accounting entry…and giving billions to the power company owners…hey, I have a better idea, why not just re-calculate the bills at the normal rate? These thieves should not be rewarded for rigging the system in their favor…now we all understand why Texas wanted to keep it’s power system separate from the national grid….so cheap power from the rest of the country couldn’t be sent to meet increased demand…and to keep the system rigged so a few get rich while the rest of the state pays…not one damn cent of FEMA money should go to these assholes….

Ghouls…every damn one of them…

Well…god, just reading about this made me sick…as you know, there has been a humanitarian emergency from storms and cold in Texas where people haven’t had electricity or heat for almost a week now….and I wrote about the woman who had a 2,800 dollar electric bill for just two days with how the utility companies are allowed to charge in an emergency….just this morning the ghoul Jerry Jones, who is the ceo of a gas company that services Texas was heard on a company call just frickin giddy at how much they are able to charge with the gas shortage that was caused by his company by not winterizing their pipelines…”This week is like hitting the jackpot with some of these incredible prices. We were able to sell at super premium prices for a material amount of production.” Nothing about how his screw ups caused people to die from the cold but just giddily rubbing his hands that he is going to be able to bankrupt people with gas that is 100 times the normal cost…and this is the same Jerry Jones that got 500 million of the cost of the Cowboy’s stadium paid for by the taxpayers of Texas…1% welfare while the little people pay for it. I just hate these guys and the systems they have paid for that allows them to steal even more from the middle class and poor in an emergency…they are all damn ghouls for gleefully hurting people as they line their pockets….and they are all repubs….that’s all there is to say….geez…
