Mr. Blunt and Cranky has friends who do card tricks and carnival magic, and he knows the techniques they use: misdirection, sleight of hand, and so on. He also knows that our “representatives” and “news media” do much the same whenever they want to put one over on us. So it has been with the Snowden “scandal”.

While you were all aghast and agog at the NSA/PRISM/Verizon/Greenwald imbroglio, the following events also occurred, but you probably missed them:

The Supreme Court made it easier to deny your right to vote.

The Supreme Court also took away your right to remain silent and made it easier for your boss to abuse you on the job.

In Michigan, one unelected man is about to steal the pensions and other retirement bennies from retirees, and will also steal from investors .

In Ohio, extreme anti-woman legislation is being advanced along with a tax hike on everyone but the rich, who will get a tax cut. And these are just a few of the events that were being downplayed by the media while they hyped a series of BS scandals, each of which turned out to be nothing when they were looked at closely.

Get the picture, Cranky Nation? We. Are. Being. Conned. A load of cheap carnies and tricksters are getting us to “look over there” at these successive faux scandals while they screw the lot of us with their other hands. It’s time to stop paying attention to these con jobs, at least until we know if there is any fire beneath the smoke.

ALWAYS pay attention to the man behind the curtain. He’s hiding back there for a reason, after all. And if he asks you to look at something amazing, you’d be well advised to look at anything BUT what he’s trying to distract you with.

Mr. Blunt and Cranky

Mr. Etch-A-Sketch’s campaign did, at least, tell us they were going to totally change their story whenever it suited them, so one must give them kudos for being honest about their intentions to lie. And yea, verily, they have¬† lived up to their promise to be lying sacks of s***. But Willard has just raised his game, as the existing lies might not have been enough to con enough people into voting for his lying a**:–Chrysler-may-move-Jeep-production-to-China

Mitt, for those of you that don’t care to click links, lied a really big lie about Chrysler moving all Jeep production to China and blaming Obama therefore. That is, of course, totally not true (Jeep is, in fact, adding a shift in Detroit), but hey, since when has Mitt shown a big ol’ regard for the facts when there are dollars (or votes) to be grubbed?

He’s gonna have to add another car elevator to hold all of the Crowns O’ Polished Turds he has earned thus far: Willie M. Romney, the Lying Sack of S*** of The Week.
