They are upset about oppression, a non-responsive and discriminatory government, and taxation without representation. Yes, that is correct. The good people of Ferguson we see out there picketing and marching may not be dressed like, say, George Washington, John Adams or Thomas Jefferson; but their complaints are eerily like the ones identified in the Declaration of Independence.

Here is a good article on the matter. Ferguson is making up for revenue shortfalls by levying burdensome taxes and fees upon the populace; said charges not having the consent of the governed:

Traffic fines are the St. Louis suburb’s second-largest source of revenue and just about the only one that is growing appreciably. Municipal court fines, most of which arise from motor vehicle violations, accounted for 21 percent of general fund revenue and at $2.63 million last year, were the equivalent of more than 81 percent of police salaries before overtime.

And the fees are applied in a discriminatory manner, much like what King George did back in the 1770’s:

“If you’re black, they’re going to stop you,” the study quoted one traffic defendant as saying.

In 2013, 86 percent of all Ferguson police traffic stops involved black drivers, the largest share since the Missouri Attorney General’s Office began tracking the data in 2000. According to 2010 U.S. Census data, the city is 63 percent black and 34 percent white.

Got it? The local government is a minority oppressing the majority, and doing so via corrupt, discriminatory and violent means. Just like what sparked the American Revolution. The differences are minor when compared with the similarities.

And just like the American colonists, the people of Ferguson aren’t asking for anything unreasonable: to be treated fairly, have their rights respected, and to have a voice in how they are taxed by the government. Unfortunately, the local administration is likewise resembling its historical counterpart and therefore refusing to change its corrupt and mendacious ways. No way this is gonna end well.

If you repeat the mistakes of the past, you’ll repeat the consequences of those past mistakes. There may not be many powdered wigs to be seen on the streets of Ferguson: but then, when s*** was getting real back in 1776, not many of the American Revolutionaries were wearing them out in the streets, either.

Mr. Blunt and Cranky (whose ancestors were here before the revolution in 1776)

Once again, we see just how screwed we are as a nation: Dems and their lassitude lost another election because too many of them were too f***ing lazy to cast a f***ing ballot. So now we have a corporate whore, lobbyist, and proto-Teabagger winning the FL-13 special election. And he won because Teabaggers and “Republicans” turn out and vote in off-year elections, but Dem voters can’t be bothered to spend a few minutes to vote, once every couple of years.

And it’s not like Democrats don’t know about the problem; Hell, the punditocracy is constantly talking about it. Obama has been bringing the issue up ad nauseum. And when Dems get off their asses, they tend to win.

But this time, the lazy left and slothful center have once again screwed the pooch by inaction. Another corrupt, lying, partisan Wingnut is headed to a Congress that is already full of such creatures. And a sensible, factual, hard-working public servant is staying in Florida.

It is the fault of lazy voters who are so stupid, unmotivated, and useless that they can’t even scribble on a piece of paper and mail it; or drive a few miles and poke at a computer screen for two minutes.

F*** all “citizens” who let us down this week. And the same for all those who do the same later this year.

Mr. Blunt and Cranky

Deny it all you want, but that is what’s happening. In Red states that have refused to take free Federal money for Medicaid expansion, hospitals are closing and babies are dying. Each and every state that is refusing Medicaid Expansion is run by Teabagging “Republicans” who hates them some Obama. Click the links if you don’t believe it. So it’s clear: these slimy creeps are willing to see you and your kids die, so just so they can go “nanny-nanny-boo-boo” to the President of the United States.

You have to wonder why an allegedly “pro-life” party would deliberately ensure the deaths of thousands of people, including infants. One also wonders why a party that loves state-level governance is passing on billions of dollars in free money. The reason is plain and simple: they hate our President and anything that has his name anywhere near it.

Today as this is being written, hospitals are preparing to close. People whose lives could have been saved are dying. And it is for petty political payback, by a bunch of vindictive “Republicans” who are willing to see innocent blood shed in order to inflict harm on our President. That’s a lot of blood on the paws of those scumbag Red politicians.

And if you vote “Republican”, Gentle Reader, there is blood on your hands, too. If you don’t love dead babies, then don’t vote for Repubs. If you don’t like dead senior citizens, don’t vote for Repubs.

If you DO vote for a GOP candidate, you express your support for deliberately causing the death of thousands of your fellow citizens. By your choice we will know you.

Mr. Blunt and Cranky

Yeah, that’s harsh. But after the deregulation the Libertarian Repubs enacted caused an enormous chemical spill there, and after the Teabagging Repubs cut the budgets for enforcing what paltry regulations remain, it seems pretty accurate. Note this simple fact: “Republicans” are to blame for the toxic chemical leak that afflicts Charleston and surrounding areas. They are to blame because they deregulated the industries involved.

Yes, a very few “Democrats” voted for such stupid deregulatory bills: including one that was passed even as the chemicals were contaminating the Elk River. This particular law would pretty much make the taxpayer pay for cleanup of messes caused by private businesses. Jesus Christ on a moonshine still, really?

But it is a 95% “Republican” policy, passed by 98% “Republican” votes, and so it is a Repub policy. And when you vote for a Repub, you are telling them that you support the poisoning of our water supplies. So if you vote for an Elephant, you are cheering on the destruction of your infrastructure and any resulting illnesses or deaths.
You are also approving of the way they kicked you in the nuts while you were down, by passing that recent bill which further deregulated the chemical industry even as you could not wash your hair or brush your teeth because of a chemical spill.

And if you vote to have yourself sickened or murdered, you are an idiot, plain and simple. Remember this come Election Day, and PLEASE don’t be stupid. Your life and health depend on a smart vote.

Mr. Blunt and Cranky

It seems to fit a pattern, in fact . When some anti-government nutjob group stands up and demands that they get lower taxes, it’s almost always a huge corporation behind them, pulling the strings. When some fake militia group starts shrieking about the gummint gonna take their guns, you can bet a weapons manufacturer is using those fools to make more money for the company and its directors’ Swiss bank accounts.

This case is no different: a “Tea Party Patriot” who wants the government to stop intruding in our private lives turns out to be a huge child porn addict. No S***, Sherlock, he wants a smaller government: a smaller government would have been less likely to catch the preeve, because they’d have had fewer resources for law enforcement.

And there was a lot to bust him for. Calling himself “HornyPastor”, he was a consumer and distributor of some of the sickest s*** you could imagine. AND by his own admission, a child molester. All the while he’s been blasting our Prexy and posting “Christian” screeds on his suddenly-and-ever-so-coincidentally-unavailable Facebook page, he’s been a criminal of the very worst sort.

There is always motivation to consider. People do weird crap every day, and we just think they are loopy. But dig a bit deeper, and you’ll find that there are usually perfectly understandable reasons for their behavior. People who want lower taxes want to save that money and use it for something else. People who want fewer cops might want to get away with crimes. Those who advocate getting rid of government agencies probably want to do something that the agency won’t let them do. And so on.

In this case, we have a bats*** crazy Right-Wing, “Republican”, Birther, Teabagging, Racist, Child-Molesting, Kiddie Porn-Loving Scumbucket: even though he is quite mad, he is rational enough to know that a smaller government would be more conducive to his perverted, revolting criminal activities.

In his case, it is safe to say that we want enough government to convict him, lock his ass up and throw away the key, and to never let him draw a free breath for the rest of his despicable life. Let him teabag to his heart’s content in prison, forevermore.

Mr. Blunt and Cranky

They took an image that mocked them, thought it praised them, and put it on their Facebook page. So they stole copyrighted material and distributed that stolen material around the world (hint: these are crimes), AND revealed themselves as the idiots they are at the same time.

Classic extremist behavior. Click the link to see the details. And if you are reading this and support the Tea Party, you might want to reconsider. Unless, of course, you are a stupid crook yourself.

Me. Blunt and Cranky

The “Republican” establishment is pretending that they are not like the Teabaggers, that they are at odds with them, that Baggers are troublesome, that they do not “represent the views of the Republcian party”, and that they were a problem. Bull-F***ing-Shit. They are all part of the Repub caucus, share bank accounts, and work together in offices across the country. There is no difference between the Baggers and the Repubs.

For example: Elected “Republican” Brian Berger was found stoned on drugs, passed out in his car, and busted for OMVI. For the fourth time. He’s also a psycho who has a restraining order against him for abusing an ex. He is still in office. Corrupt? Hellz yeah.

Elected “Republican” Ted Yahooo Yoho is holding a pro-gun event on Saturday. The anniversary of the Sandy Hook massacre. He claims it’s a coincidence. Suuuuuuure, Teddy Boy. Extremist? Oh, Hellz Yeah.

“Republican” party official Dave Agema recently went on an anti-gay tirade full of lies and discriminatory rhetoric. He has a few critics, but is largely supported by his state party, and will be Michigan’s representative at national committee meetings. Evidently he thinks the Founders didn’t really mean that “all men are created equal” language. Anti-American? Oh, HELLZ YEAH.

People, these scumbuckets ARE the “Republican” party. They are mainstream. They’re not fringe wackos living in shanties, they are public officials: elected by Repubs, funded by Repubs, supported by Repubs, and that makes them mainstream Repubs. They are also corrupt, gun nutty, hateful, homophobic psycho cases.

And if you vote for or support a “Republican”, then you also show your support for corrupt, extremist haters of the Constitution. Squirm all you like, but that’s the reality. The Dems will stick a shiv in the back of any of their members if they step out of line, but the Elephants support and enable the crooks and crazies in their ranks. So, voting for a Dem doesn’t make you a supporter of crimes and misdemeanors, because they’ll throw one of their own under the bus without so much as a honk of the horn. The GOP ignores the misdeeds of its officials and members.

Not that this is a new thing that came in wtih the Teabaggers: Former Ohio Governor (and “Republican:) Bob Taft was convicted of crimes in office, and STILL served out the remainder of his term, even though he was, well, convicted of crimes in office. The first Ohio Governor convicted of crimes in office, and his fellow ‘Phants shrugged it off. That’s the “Republican” party, folks.

Corrupt? Extremist? Anti-American? Hellz Yeah.
Deserving of your vote? Oh, Hellz No.

Mr. Blunt and Cranky

Ted Cruz thinks that defeat is victory; or at least, he thinks that being ahead during a contest means more than who actually wins or loses at the end of a contest: http://www.rawstory.com/rs/2013/10/16/cruz-it-was-a-remarkable-victory-until-senate-republicans-caved-on-the-shutdown/ From the article:

Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) on Wednesday blasted members of his own party after he said that they wasted a “remarkable victory” by making a deal with Democrats to re-open the government and avert a default on U.S. debt by raising the nation’s credit limit

Of course, Teapublicans did not win a victory at the end of the recent shutdown/default debacle. At the end, they were forced to “surrender”, in the words of Speaker Boehner. Most of us see a surrender as a, well, defeat. But not Teddy Boi Cruz. In his world:

  • Cleveland won a remarkable victory last week, because they led at the half. (Of course, Detroit won the game later)
  • Rome won a remarkable victory over Rebbe Yeshua bar Joseph when they crucified him. (Of course, the Christians  are still around, and the Roman empire is long gone).
  • England won a remarkable victory over the rebellious American colonies…you get the idea.

Clearly, Teddy Boi hasn’t a clue about the English language. Buy the fool a dictionary, someone, PLEASE.

Mr. Blunt and Cranky

Here’s one core belief of a Radical Centrist: “Revolutions suck”.  Extremists like Teabaggers are so bloody stupid, they WANT a revolution, and they WANT to violently overthrow our Constitutional government.  They say so themselves:

“[Obama] will finally know that his time has come to leave his perverted, Islamic concept of Mecca, our nation’s hallowed capital,” Klayman concludes. “I do not advocate violence, but it is time we show Obama that we mean business. He would be well advised to ride off into his Islamic sunset, link up with 72 virgins and party on at his expense – not ours!”

http://www.renewamerica.com/columns/klayman/130923

In case you didn’t pick it up: The “72 virgins” are a misquoted reference to the Islamic afterlife. This means that Mr. Klayman wants Obama dead.  Yes, he is threatening the life of the President.

Of course, most people would never dream of following a child molester into battle, but Teabaggers are showing themselves willing to do so. Yes, Klayman is a child molester, as judged by a real court of law (not one of his phony ones):http://wonkette.com/485407 

The fact that one of the main voices calling for a revolution in this country is a failed lawyer who molests his own children should be enough to alarm America in and of itself. But that’s not the only issue: revolutions kill people, usually the poor and powerless. Teabaggers like that idea, too. Revolutions lead to a breakdown in law and order. Teabaggers think they love that idea.  

So a lot of extremist loons want to follow a preeve into a battle that will wreck the country and kill a lot of defenseless innocents?Yeah, right.  If ever you needed an example that proves  Centrism is rational, just look at this alternative.

Revolutions suck. So does anybody and everybody who wants one.

Mr. Blunt and Cranky

Here’s a picture of the recent rally at the White House:BWd9MsBIMAAR5AD, showing that there are lots of sore losers in America. In this one picture, we see Teabaggers (who lost in 2012, big time), Confederates (who lost the Civil War, big time) and “Republicans”(who lost in 2012, big time). None of these people can comprehend the fact that they got their heads handed to them on  a platter. All of them are convinced that they should have won, and none of them understand that they did not.

And who “led” this motley assembly that was supposed to represent our veterans? Who was in charge of a load of yahoos waving Confederate Flags at a black man in the White House? Why, two teabgging politicos (Sarah Palin and Ted Cruz),  and a child-molesting nutjob (Larry Klayman), none of whom ever served in combat.

News flash: The South lost the Civil War. Teabaggers lost the last few elections. Republicans lost the last few elections. All the sore losers need to accept reality and move on. Instead of threatening the life of the President and trying to overthrow the government.
