18 dead and not a mention…

Well…with the idiot trump visiting the flooded ares of Texas yesterday, I wonder what he talked about? How about this quote: “great turnout, great crowd”…no mention of the 18 dead or any condolences to their families….no talks with anyone whose house was lost in the flooding…no comforting of the hundreds of thousands whose lives have been ruined by this tragedy…nothing…and today, guess what the idiot is doing after he did the barest minimum for those affected by the floods? Another frickin campaign rally in Missouri that he has been tweeting incessantly about today….okay repubs, how can you continue to support this useless piece of crap? You are all going down with him….impeach…

Shameful trump….

Well…if you weren’t sure what kind of a person the idiot trump is, just look at his tweets today…with millions of Americans in danger from the weather in Texas, the idiot boy tweets a plug for a book written by one of his donors, about how big his election win was, (again), how they love him in Missouri, and a bunch of other nonsense, even going so far to brag how much “his” government is doing for Texas…seemingly reveling in the storm and that he can respond to it…every damn thing he has tweeted today was about him…nothing about how the country feels about our fellow Americans who are in danger and losing everything, nope, not from this asshole….repubs, are you tired of this yet? I know 60% of the country is and it is your job to remove this stain on the country…impeach….

Now it’s bribery…

Well…if being a racist wasn’t enough, now it is becoming clear that ole Trump is a briber, too….and he freely admits it. What will it take for someone to do something about this? As a little background, as AG’s around the country investigated the fraudulent Trump University, and it started to look bad for Trump with at least 5 investigations in different states getting to the point of proffering charges, two of the AG’s…in Florida and Texas decided that there wasn’t enough evidence to bring a suit….even though two other AG’s disagreed….now we know why they dropped the investigations….ole Trump gave campaign contributions to the AG’s of both Texas and Florida and then magically the cases were dropped. Yep…I guess now you can buy your way out of legal trouble with 25K in Florida and 50K in Texas…just as long as you have repub AG’s…I guess money talks and justice walks. Trump has even said that when he makes political contributions, he expects to get something for them in the future. And the AG that took the bribe in Texas is now the governor there…funny how that works out. One thing they didn’t count on in Texas is that one of the people that was in the office during the investigation just released 14 pages of material that shows that the case there was really strong and now the governor…Abbott is retaliating against the individual that made the scam public….just another day in the repub run justice system…grease my palms and you can do anything you want…geez…

Texas is just crazy…

Well….as you know, I really don’t understand Texas and the idiots who are running that state…and that was really brought home by the latest bit of insanity that their legislators have foisted on that state. On August 1st, a new open carry law takes effect that requires state run universities to allow students to carry guns on campus…needless to say, this has administrators scrambling to figure out how to deal with this crap….they are now having seminars for professors across that state that basically tells them to let the gun carriers do whatever they want…to not criticize them, to makes sure they get “fair” grades, and to not ever confront them over bad behavior….so, the gun nuts get to do whatever they want while the rest of the people have to just take crap from them…I guess that’s consistent with the repub hatred of education and teachers…that teacher’s safety is less important than the nuts that want to carry guns everywhere….how much more stupid can people get? And do you believe for a minute that these gun carriers aren’t going to try to intimidate teachers and other students?
Geez….

Can these guys get even more stupid?

Well…with the scaredy cat repubs doing everything they can to prevent any of the refugees from Syria being settled in the US since they are all 8 feet tall super terrorists…even the 5 year olds…we now have Texas weighing in on why they shouldn’t be allowed to come here and it is so dripping with irony and stupidity that I just had to comment on it. I wonder if you can guess what that would be? A state rep, Tony Dale, went off on a tv interview the other day saying that Texas can’t accept any refugees since it would be too easy for them to buy guns when they arrived…yep…let that one soak in a minute…a guy who has the highest rating for being a shill for the NRA basically says that if you’re a crazy assed white person threatening to shoot federal government employees you can have all the guns you can afford, but, if you’re a refugee (a brown person and probably not a good christian), you can’t. He goes so far as to make sure that any id they may get from the government be stamped so that it can’t be used to purchase a gun…never mind that this idiot blocked laws that would have mandated ID’s and background checks for gun purchases in Texas…and that any refugee could walk into any gun show in Texas and buy whatever he wants without showing any ID…so, what this boils down to is that this racist just doesn’t want any more not white people in his state and he will use any reason to rationalize keeping them out…and to him, the constitution doesn’t apply to anyone except those he approves of…typical asshole repub….geez…

Jade Helm is over…

Well…not sure if you remember this one or not but I find it funny enough to write about it again….there was a huge military exercise in Texas and other southwest states this summer…just like they have held it for years and years, but this year the crazies on the right went nuts with their conspiracy theories saying that it was going to be a takeover of Texas by the federal government. Not only a takeover, but there were secret tunnels under abandoned Walmarts and FEMA camps where “true patriots” were going to be rounded up and then their guns were going to be taken away…and something, something….you get my drift. The funny thing here is no matter how ridiculous this all sounds, almost half of all repubs believed this crap…now, how frickin delusional do you have to be to believe this nonsense? Now, they no longer have to be scared…Jade Helm ended last week and, as far as I can see, Texas is still there, no one has been rounded up and the tunnels under the Walmarts are still empty….I wonder what the next big conspiracy is going to be for these folks? What must it be like to live in that kind of a fevered brain? Something I never want to know…geez…

The crazy train picks up speed in Texas….

Well…just when I thought it couldn’t get any crazier in Texas, the crazy train there just keeps on picking up speed….the latest head slapper comes form the newly elected governor who put the national guard there on alert the other day…can you guess the reason? Nope, you will never get this one in a million years….his reason was that he thinks that the feds are going to take over Texas, confiscate all the guns, and lock up the politicians. Yeah…from an elected governor no less…we have this new level of crazy that was triggered from the annual military practices that are held at the military bases there every year….and have been since the bases were established over 50 years ago. I wonder if it’s something in the water since ole Ted Cruz jumped on the crazy bandwagon and sent a letter to someone in the federal government asking them to reassure Texans that they have nothing to fear from these exercises. Now, it makes it really easy for me when these idiots go over the edge, like they seem to do about once a week now, but, c’mon…really? This takeover would just never happen….and now this idiot governor has the righties there worked up and polishing their guns getting ready for an attack…..let’s waste more time and money getting ready for something that is just a delusion….and not fund schools….geez…

Doing nothing against ISIS?

Well…just finished reading about another ignorant right winger, Lamar Smith, a congressman from Texas who said today that Obama is doing “nothing” to combat ISIS in the middle east and it is a shame that Jordan and Egypt are doing more….how many more times do we have to use facts to try to puncture the bubble of ignorance for these folks? The facts are that the US has launched 8 times more airstrikes against ISIS that all of the other countries in the middle east combined…that our command and control systems like AWACS are used to plan and control every attack no matter what country the planes come from…and our satellites and intelligence gathering assets are the only ones that have the capability to find out what is happening on the ground. I think it would be a big surprise to our pilots and planners over there that they are doing nothing and it is just a part of the truth of the right these days…that they don’t give a damn about the service of the military unless they can use it to attack Obama…even lying about the truth and denigrating the contribution that our military has given in the fight against ISIS…what an idiot…call ole Lamar and tell him to shut the hell up…

Is the stupid in the water in Texas?

Well…as you know, I read a lot every day and I come across some really stupid stuff…and a lot of it is from Texas where it appears that the stupid is in the water like flouride. This latest one happened a couple of days ago where a grade school principle suspended an 8 year old for bringing a ring to school and saying it was the magic ring from “Lord of the Rings” and he could make one of his classmates invisible with the ring….the idiot principal of the school said that saying he could turn someone invisible was a “threat” so she suspended this 8 year old…for having an imagination, I guess. The worst thing is this same kid was suspended a couple of months ago for bringing his copy of “The Big Book of Knowledge”, a popular children’s book to school…and the reason for that suspension? The book has a picture of a pregnant woman in it…yep, in Texas the stupid runs so deep that kids get suspended for having a picture book with them….where do they think babies come from? Probably by magic…just like the rest of their thinking on everything….geez…

Rick Perry is still an idiot…

Well…how many times do I have to say “Rick Perry is still an idiot”? It seems that every day that idiot comes out with a new bit of stupidity the tops the last one…the latest was from a few days ago where he basically said that Joan Rivers would still be alive if New York had the same draconion abortion restrictions they have in Texas…you know, where all of the clinics there have to be mini hospitals with a certain width hallways, bigger doors, and other things that have nothing to do with the services being performed…since when does a wider hallway have anything to do with a woman’s health? The only thing these restrictions do is put the clinics out of business since they are not there to make huge profits and can’t afford to rebuild their buildings. Using this logic, whey haven’t  they put these same restrictions on oral surgery clinics? Statistics show that oral surgery is more dangerous than getting an abortion as is knee surgery and every other outpatient surgery. The final fact is that the clinic where Joan Rivers was treated met all of the Texas requirements….but she died anyway…what a moron…geez…
