These are some sick bastards…

Well…oh, goody…the latest repub talking point just dropped yestereday and it just reveals that they are some sick bastards…Mike Pence was out yesterday trying to defend taking healthcare away from 30 million Americans and making it more expensive for everyone else by saying that if people just took “personal responsibility” for their health, they would not even need health insurance so quit your damn complaining. This is straight from his damn cult of a religion that anything that happens to you is your fault….it’s your fault that you got old and can’t find a job, it’s your fault that you come down with Alzheimer’s, it’s you fault that you get cancer, it’s your fault if some idiot t-bones your car…you get the point….if you took more “personal responsibility” none of these bad things would ever have happened to you…and the same goes for being poor…it must have been something you did or you would be rich like me….I have this to say to you, Pence, you are one of the worst people in the world and I wish you would just shut the hell up as you steal this country for your owners…..impeach….

Pence lawyers up….

Well…I just read (with some glee, I must add) that the supposed “straight shooter” Mike Pence has just hired outside counsel to defend him in both the Russia collusion case and his part in the obstruction of justice that is engulfing the idiot trump and his cronies. Now, let’s think back to the campaign and all of the cheers of “lock her up” that came from Pence and the rest of the trump campaign saying that a Clinton administration would be the most corrupt in history…just like they always slurred Obama and his administration with. Look at the facts….not one of Obama’s people lawyered up in the first 5 months of his presidency…no one in his campaign was under investigation in the first 5 months of his presidency…and neither was Obama. So, who is the most corrupt? The idiot trump and his cronies win this one….and Pence now knows his tenure as VP is in danger…let’s get the perp walks started…impeach….

Hypocrites, all….

Well….I have not seen this many liars in government in my long lifetime…and the same goes for the repub hypocrites that infest this nation…as I’m sure you recall….the major issue of this last election was Clinton’s use of a private e-mail system that she used to conduct government business…and the drumbeat was relentless that she should be “locked up” for doing it…and one of the biggest voices was Mike Pence, who, it was just revealed, used his AOL account to conduct business when he was governor of Indiana…yeah, I know, who the hell uses AOL anymore? I am so damn tired of these hypocrites and liars getting a pass from the media and their normalization of lying as they breathe….why is there no outrage about this? Every damn one of trumps cabinet picks lied to us during their confirmation hearings….and no one thinks that is enough for them to go? This is the modern repubs folks…but I guess you like being lied to since you knew they were all liars and yet you still voted for them….I’m getting a headache thinking about this….

The VP debate…

Well….running really late on this one today since I have been quite busy with stuff around here and I don’t really feel that hot…forgot to take some painkillers before the bike ride and now everything hurts…but, that’s not what this one is about….I didn’t watch much of the VP debate last night since I went out to have a couple instead and I really am getting tired of politics right now. But, I did read the analysis on all of the news sources this morning and came away with one thing…that Pence is just as big a liar as Trump…with one site showing that over 70% of what Pence said were lies…right in line with the Donald who did the same in his debate…and I do have to fault Tim Kaine for not calling him on the biggest one…that the Trump foundation and the Clinton foundation are equal…as you’ve read here, the Trump foundation is nothing but an illegal slush fund that Donald uses as his personal piggybank while the Clinton foundation uses almost 90% of what they collect to help people around the world…almost half a billion and counting. One thing that did happen is that ole Pence did start to throw Trump under the bus by trying to make the debate all about Pence…and the Donald was a little irritated about that…poor baby….one thing I wish Kaine would have done is to highlight the core of hatred for women that Pence has and his record of promoting discrimination against the LGBT community…really easy hits that should have bee made…geez…

Modern repubs…sigh…

Well….let’s add Mike Pence to those who have really relinquished their sanity to support the chief Idiot, Trump….at a Pence rally the other day, a woman asked how Pence could still support Trump when Trump attacks military families….and his response was that he has never met anyone who supports the troops more than Trump….as much as that is wrong on so many levels…basically every level…the worst part was that the crowd attempted to shout the woman down..who, by the way, has a son serving in the Air Force…she persevered and got through the question to shouts of throw her out and shut up…and, here is how ignorant the Trump/Pence supporters are…when they interviewed a few of them after the rally, they all said that the woman had “violated their rights” by asking a question they didn’t want to hear…now….I am getting really tired of pointing out what the constitution really means to these folks…the first amendment protects this woman’s right to speak out…it doesn’t protect you from hearing something you don’t want to hear….and it doesn’t give religious folks the right to discriminate in the name of religion…man…I am just shaking my head at all of the stupidity…geez…

Things are shaping up…

Well…have been sitting here trying to think of something to write about when the news came over Twitter that it appears that Trump has picked Mike Pence of Indiana to be his VP. The repubs in Indiana are cheering like crazy today since Pence was behind the LGBT discrimination bill that has cost Indiana tens if not hundreds of millions of dollars and had made Indiana the laughingstock of the country. Now, they can run someone for governor that has a chance of winning…and the business community will have a chance to get the law repealed. But the stink of this discrimination will waft right along with ole Mike as he rides into Cleveland but the christianist right will think it’s perfume since hate groups like Family Research Council have succeeded in getting rabidly anti LGBT planks put into the repub platform. The only thing that ole Mike brings to the table is that he has actually been in government….shitty government that gutted education in Indiana while giving tax cuts to the rich…as all of the repub governors do….but for those supporting Trump, that’s a great thing since they think cutting education only hurts the teacher’s unions that they hate more than anything. The one thing I don’t understand about this whole election is how the Clinton e-mail “scandal” is equivalent to the serial bankruptcies, lies, and hate that come out of Trumps campaign….I fear for this country if the media continues to let all of Trumps transgressions go…geez…

Mike Pence is just the biggest ass in the US….

Well…with all of the chickenshit repub governors, including ours here in Michigan, puffing out their chests and saying they will block any Syrian refugees from settling in their states…we have a new low from the really, really asshole governor of Indiana, Mike Pence, who today said that two Syrian families who have been waiting for three years to come here will not be allowed to settle there. There’s your modern repub christian folks…spout Jesus all the time but when it comes to really following their supposed religion, they are just too damn scared or, even worse, are making a political calculation to leave these families in limbo just to get some votes from their equally scared and equally asholley voters….this crap needs to be stomped on now, it is against the law for Pence to do that…federal immigration law trumps what an asshole from Indiana thinks…states do not have the authority to ban anyone from entering the country…he should be sued or arrested and put in jail…I have had enough of these holier than thou asses who wave the constitution around but then ignore it when it’s not convenient or can’t be used to discriminate against people they don’t like….as you know, I’m an atheist but I know a little about religion and know that there is a special place in hell for people like Pence who do nothing to protect the least of the people…to paraphrase the new testament…I think it goes like this…what you do to them, you do to me…so Pence…you’ve discriminated against Jesus as you’ve discriminated against these poor folks who are yearning to breathe free…what a chickenshit move from a chickenshit person….there is even a better rant on this subject by Hunter over at Dalykos today….breathtaking in outrage…

Mike Pence is still lying…

Well…after ole Mike’s show yesterday at his news conference about his state’s ‘license to discriminate” law…where said repeatedly that the law needed to be ‘fixed” to go forward and garuntee that there would be no discrimination against LGBT people, this idiot goes on fox news and basically says “nevermind” that the law does not need to be fixed and he stands behind the law…repeating the repub talking point that it is not the law but the perception of the law that is the problem…and all he needs is a little propaganda from fox to make everything better…yep, Mike that’s it…it just the perception that the bigots in the state who will use this law to discriminate that is the problem and that Hoosiers will not discrimninate..so, when were you lying, Mike?  At the news conference or on Fox? Just ask the O’Connor family who own Memories Pizza in Walkerton…who stated today that they will not serve gay people and said  ”it’s not discrimination, it’s just our belief and anyone has the right to believe in anything”…yep no bigots in the Hoosier state….Mike, you are such an idiot and the people that voted for you deserve to lose everything….geez…

Mike Pence is either a liar or stupid..you pick…

Well…just watched the Mike Pence news conference and the only thoughts that came into my head is either lying or stupid…or maybe both, trying to make people believe that he never thought the law would result in discrimination while it’s supporters, who stood behind him when he signed it crowed that discrimination was the purpose of the law. But the striking thing to me is how well he used the repub playbook of victimhood….that Indiana is the target of a “smear” campaign by outside media and the problem is just of “perception” of the law. If you follow the news at all, this is the go to repub tactic whenever they are challenged on this nonsense….it’s not that the law will permit discrimination (it does) but the perception that people have that it will allow discrimination…or that people found out that this law will permit discrimination and they surely wanted to hide it from the general public…just like they lied about right to work here in Michigan and Wisconsin. The “outside media” claim was exploded by the biggest paper in the State…the “Indianapolis Star” having a front page editorial today that called on the Governor to get rid of this hate legislation and ensure equal rights for all people in Indiana…but ole Mike said that rights for everyone is different than this law so they have to be dealt with later….he even said last week that LGBT rights were not on his agenda. So, bottom line…the repubs got caught trying to use the law to discriminate against people they hate…that’s the only takeaway…that they got caught…not that it is wrong to discriminate…what a bunch of asses…geez…

Serves you right, Indiana…

Well…after the idiot governor, Pence, went on the Sunday shows a lied his ass off about the new “license to discriminate” law that he signed, the fallout continues….a major union just pulled their conference out of Indianapolis…Angie’s list just stopped an expansion that they had planned and many states have forbidden their people from any travel for state business to Indiana….and this idiot continues to double down on his lies along with attacking the media for their “sensationalism” in their reporting. Now Mike, ole buddy…it’s not sensationalizing when they truthfully report that you won’t say that this law will lead to discrimination…when you know for a fact that it is the sole purpose of this law…and you were asked pointedly about just that fact and you wouldn’t answer that simple yes or no question. So, citizens of Indiana…it serves you right to have this attention on your state…you elected these asses….geez…
