Well, at least the energy company and the state government “leaders” are up front about screwing over the people of North Carolina. Then again, the plutocrats are no longer ashamed of hiding their malfeasance.

Funny stuff!

It’s not too often that one can dream about a monkey riding a sheep and wake up laughing, but I’m glad I did!  This is the first time in a while that I’ve woken up in a positive mood.

Little mitten cookies!

John Boehner once again gets punk’d by the tea party “patriots”.  At some point, as Speaker of the House, you’d think he would stand up and say “Enough is enough, we have serious business to tend to”.  Instead, he has let a bunch of uneducated children hijack the republican caucus and cripple our nation with their untenable demands.  Our democracy depends on ADULTS solving real-world problems, not making things worse.  Allowing the minority of the minority to control the debate has pushed the gop to the extreme right, and at this point, it is too late for them to come back.

The shutdown is on…

Thanks for absolutely nothing, Boehner.  You have no control of your caucus, and no power within your own party.  You allowed the TP to bully you into submission, and now you have nothing to show for your time as Speaker of the House but empty bottles and a trail of tears.   You have presided over the worst Congress in history.  For that, you can only blame yourself.  The next time you go back to your district, you need to look each and every one of your constituents in the eyes and explain to them why you allowed a tiny minority to take the American political process hostage in order to impose their own myopic, narrow-minded views on the rest of the nation, but I doubt you will.  Former Speaker Pelosi still wields a bigger gavel.

The hits just keep on coming….

And now the keyboard on my laptop has malfunctioned.  That’s it, I’m officially done.  I just can’t continue to operate like this.
