Ohhh -- that's gotta hurt . . . . LMFAO!

The TeaBaggers really don't have clue how they're being used like a $5 hooker by the GOP poobahs. Kind of sad if you think about it.


If they really cared about America's future . . . . .

Why are conservatives and the GOP running interference for this traitorous scum?

The Securities and Exchange Commission on Friday charged Goldman Sachs Group Inc. with defrauding investors, alleging that Goldman let a big hedge fund fill a financial product with risky subprime mortgages and then failed to disclose that to the product's buyers.

The SEC said in the civil complaint that Goldman and Fabrice Tourre, then vice president, created and sold opaque collateralized-debt obligations, or CDOs, that hinged on the performance of subprime-mortgage-backed securities.

I'd really like the Tea Party folks to coherently explain that one to me.

If any single group of people bears the brunt of blame for the economic meltdown in this country it's the big Bankers and the Wall Street thieves. But the GOP doesn't want to look into their ponzi scheming and most certainly do not want to force the white collar con artists to change their way of doing business in an effort to curb abuses and fraud.

After closely observing the Tea Party movement since their inauspicious conception within weeks of Obama's inauguration, I get the distinct feeling that they are much more interested in Obama's birth certificate than they are in holding accountable the suit and tie institutional criminals who have financially ass-raped this country this past decade and set America's economic progress back 40 years.

And that's why I mock them and will continue to mock them. Running around with "Obama is Hitler" signs isn't going deter the next sleazy hedge-fund operator from looting your company, city or county pension fund or decimating your 401k. In fact -- those guys love that buffoonery -- it keeps the media attention riveted on the absurd instead of the crime deeds being perpetrated in the name of free market capitalism.


Fair and Balanced my ASS! (ver. 13, 131)

The FOX News execs are only "furious" because they were caught red-handed taking a steaming dump on what little remains of their journalistic credibility. That and the likelihood that some form of FCC corrective action was going to be the outcome, generating even more negative publicity for their "News" organization - and we all know, corporate investors hate negative publicity about their cash cows.

I mean c'mon --- how the fuck could they not know about this:

Like I've stated all along -- if the FCC simply disallows them from using the word "News" in their organization name, that would be fine with me .. they can spout all the bullshit lies and right-wing propaganda they want then and I wouldn't give a rat's ass. But while they keep calling themselves a "News" organization while simultaneously acting as a marketing arm of right-wing politics, I'm going to keep bashing the shit out of them, even if it is painfully redundant.


GFY - - a movement grows . . .

Jon Stewart tells the media frauds at FOX to Go Fuck Themselves (no really he does - just watch the clip - lol). At least I'm ahead of the Stewart curve on this one - I've been telling the wingnuts to Go Fuck Themselves for the past 3 weeks and I'm feeling kinda proud one of my very rare media heroes has seen fit to validate my cherished rantings.

Contract shmontract!!

Oh this is just too goddamn rich!

Apparently, to protest tax day tomorrow, the Teabaggers are now trumpeting to the lamestream media what they are referring to as "The Tea Party Contract From America."

Here is a list of 10 principles that the Teabugger's contract is "seriously" stating must be prioritized in order for America to survive:

1. Protect the Constitution
2. Reject Cap & Trade
3. Demand a Balanced Budget
4. Enact Fundamental Tax Reform
5. Restore Fiscal Responsibility & Constitutionally Limited Government in Washington
6. End Runaway Government Spending
7. Defund, Repeal, & Replace Government-run Health Care
8. Pass an ‘All-of-the-Above” Energy Policy
9. Stop the Pork
10. Stop the Tax Hikes

Hmmm . . . let's analyze shall we?

1. Protect the Constitution: oh you mean like how Bush and Cheney protected the Constitution by using it as their authoritarian doormat for 8 years? Bite me.

2. Reject Cap & Trade: wingnut code speak for "global warming is a hoax!", willfully ignorant of the facts and the reality that 95% of the world's climate scientists say otherwise.

3. Demand a Balanced Budget: Bwahahahaha! Oh that's beautiful! Bush and the GOP inherit a $280 million dollar surplus from Bill Clinton and proceeded to bankrupt the country. Tell me why it's a priority for you all now, and even more importantly, why I or anyone else should give a shit what you think!?

4. Enact Fundamental Tax Reform: most Americans paid less in taxes this year - what's wrong with that??

5. Restore Fiscal Responsibility & Constitutionally Limited Government in Washington: another Bwahahahaha! do you fucking people really believe the bullshit you spout??

6. End Runaway Government Spending: unless there's some small, ass-backward country with brown people, a conscripted army, and no air force or navy in it that we can invade and bomb to smithereens right? right?

7. Defund, Repeal, & Replace Government-run Health Care: of course, because 40,000 unneeded American deaths due to lack of access to basic health care and 35 million citizens with no health care whatsoever does not constitute any semblance of a moral or fiscal cost to the country whatsoever! (I swear these Teabaggers ranks swell with morons).

8. Pass an ‘All-of-the-Above” Energy Policy: they say "All-of-the-Above" but in actuality they mean solely "Drill Baby Drill" - and the cycle of dependence on Mid-East oil is not abated and the human journey down the rabbit hole to climate Armageddon merrily continues on it's way.

9. Stop the Pork: this is probably the one principle we can reasonably agree on - but once again I ask where were these voices of concern during the Bush years when the GOP had control of all three branches of government plus the executive and spent America into the poor house?

10. Stop the Tax Hikes: [see principle no. 4] Obama has pretty much kept his promise that a majority of Americans would see their tax burden reduced this year so I ask the question again -- what the fuck is wrong with that??

Alright - time for an uninhibited moment of 'truthiness' ok?

America, in the bizarro world-view of your average Teabagger, appears to have "lost it's way" at the precise moment that the skinny Black Democrat from Chicago gained 8 million more votes than their chosen candidates. True or false? I've yet to have a single conservative say 'false' to that question and back up their answer with anything remotely resembling honesty or coherency. But what can one expect from people who refuse to acknowledge the fact that three fourths of the current $11 trillion dollar national debt was incurred under Republican Presidencies?

If it seems like I am being smugly dismissive of this shiny new Teabagger "contract from America" - it's because I am. 8 fucking years of standing mutely on the sidelines watching Bush, Cheney and the GOP flag waving fuckheads drive the American Dream bus off a cliff and only NOW do these people see there's a problem?? I've made my views known about these Johnny-come-lately Teabaggers quite bluntly in a few recent posts and those views have not fluctuated - they can all Go Fuck Themselves.
