Yes, vulture capitalist Thomas Perkins is a motherf***er of the highest degree, one who f***s his own mother, his wife’s mother, their respective mothers, and indeed, any mothers he can lay his scummy little mitts on. Adding to that is the sense of entitlement to the mothers of the world, an outraged response to anyone who suggests that he leave all those mothers alone, and a proposal that he and others like him have laws passed reserving all American mothers for themselves alone. An honest motherf***er is he.

Mr. Perkins made an analogous proposal recently: that only taxpayers be allowed to vote, and that the richer you are, the more votes you can cast. Said it straight up and did not try to pass it off as a joke. And he has not yet walked it back as he did (partly, anyway) his comparison of people like you and me to Nazis. This is what the rich motherf***er really thinks.

And he isn’t the only one: five Supreme Court “justices” said pretty much the same thing when they imposed the Citizens United ruling on the nation. That ruling made money into speech, meaning that those with more money have a right to more speech. This is the wealthy trying to take over our government, and having some success at it.

But unlike Tommy Boy, most of the other motherf***ers don’t admit to being f***ers of mothers. They talk about “freedom”, and “unfettered capitalism” and other such buzzword-laden tripe, and pretend that their vision is not at all Orwellian. But they want the same thing he wants, make no mistake about it: a plutocracy, wherein the rich rule the rest of us.

But honest or not, he wants to f*** our mothers. And the rest of us. So f*** him.

(Next time: motherf***ers crying about being “attacked”.)

Mr. Blunt and Cranky

This week’s Crown O’ Polished Turds shall adorn the misshapen dome of a Supreme Court “Justice”. Antonin Scalia (an Italian name meaning “scaly like a snake”) this week declared from the bench that providing everyone equal access to the polls was “racial entitlement”. Yes, he really said that.

Fat Tony is saying that providing those who have been discriminated against when trying to vote with protection against further discrimination is somehow giving these crime victims some sort of special goodies. Never mind that the poor, elderly, the young and people of color are still being victimized.

Let us imagine for a moment what Mister rude gesture is thinking, in the darkness of his bigoted, slimy head: probably something along the order of “those damned jigaboos need to learn their place”. No doubt he also feels that the nips Japanese should still be confined to internment camps, and bitches women should not be allowed to vote, along with the micks Irish, wetbacks Hispanics, terrorists Moslems and pretty much everyone but bead-squeezers Catholic honkies white men. Had he been around in Pharaoh’s day, he’d have been putting more chains on the kikes Israelites, no doubt.

You may find the previous paragraph to be offensive, and you’re right: it is. Why, it’s nearly as offensive as a Supreme Court reinstating slavery invalidating the Voting Rights Act and claiming that they are promoting “equality”.

Mr. Scalia, you may wear your COPTs, but you’d be better off to eat it, so as to harmonize better with the rest of your body chemistry.

Mr. Blunt and Cranky never enjoys encountering spoiled brats, or the parents responsible for their spoiling. Whiny, demanding, hateful, vicious, cruel, greedy, and loud are just some of the negative characteristics this writer finds to be most disagreeable. And the older they get, the worse it gets.

Sometimes, people can spoil themselves in spite of their family’s best efforts. These self-spoiled kids are no better to be around, but at least one can have sympathy for their parents. Other times, people grow up, get a taste of the good life and THEN start spoiling themselves. These are the worst of all spoiled brats, these narcissistic turds, because they often are able to accrete power and influence over others.

Today’s example: http://www.washingtonpost.com/blogs/election-2012/wp/2012/09/21/ann-romney-to-critics-stop-it-this-is-hard/  in which Queen Ann shows a sense of entitlement that would have made Henry VIII cringe in disgust. Both she and her little subbie-boy hubbie act as though they should somehow be insulated from anything but comfort and pleasantries, surrounded by a light, fluffy, sparkly existence. And when reality intrudes on their dreamscape, these two show their nasty sides; nasty sides that are truly ugly and scary.

The “Republican” party frequently complains about “entitlements”, and people who think are “entitled” to things. What they mean are people who want their tax dollars to provide some benefit to themselves or their communities, instead of going to line the pockets of special interests and corrupt legislators.

This writer suggests that there is another part of the populace, possessed of a sense of entitlement, who are far more insidious and detrimental to our society: an emerging “ruling class” of people like the Romneys who act as though they are above criticism; above the law; and entitled to anything they want, just because they want it. And if we look at the past few decades during which this subculture has arisen, we can see that it is our government that has been doing at least part the “spoiling”.

These spoiled brats do not deserve to run our country, not least because they are not representative of it. Even if that does not bother you, it would still be well to vote against these little rodents. Otherwise, we’ll have to put up with their tantrums and screeching for at least four years –  kind of like being stuck in a McDonald’s playland full of spoiled brats during a birthday party, and not being able to leave.

The horror. The horror.

http://www.businessweek.com/ap/2012-09-20/who-are-mitt-romneys-47-percent-a-breakdown is a good read, explaining the three demographic groups who ol’ Willie M. Romney was trash-talking behind their backs, said back-stabbing recently revealed by a hidden video camera (First, Pamela Anderson. Now, the Republicans. They never learn).

According to Mitt, if you are likely to vote for Obama, don’t pay Federal income taxes, and/or receive Federal benefits, why then, you’re a lazy, mooching little bit of scum beneath his tasseled loafers and thus unworthy of his thought. Much has been made of the rudeness, the insensitivity, the manifold other failings revealed by the statement. Not much has been made of the lie behind the words, so Mr. Blunt and Cranky shall make something of it here:

This writer falls into one category – likely Obama voter (not so much pro-Obama as anti-Romney), so he must be a whimpering little begging victim in Romneyworld: at least that is Willie’s lie.

Here’s the truth: this writer works 13-hour days at his  main job, is starting two small businesses, pays a s***-load of taxes and takes care of home, hearth, family and  community in his copious free time.

A moocher, am I? Hey, Mitt, stop cowering behind your wealth and power, and stop over  the house all on your lonesome and let’s see if you have the nuts to say that lying crap to my face. Bring it, you little nancy-boy. Here’s five bucks that says you won’t .

MR. B & C.

Ann Romney hath spoken from Her Queenly Perch O’ Entitlement, telling reporter Natalie Morales that She and Lord Willard will not hand out any more information about Their Royal Selves to the media, or we lowly citizens, for that matter. Clearly She and Her little nancy boy Husband have not grasped the difference between public and private sector employment.

Here’s the deal, Annie-me-lass: when one works in the private sector (like Mr. Blunt and Cranky, say), one can live as privately as one wishes. Where you live, how you live, how much money you have, none of that is anybody’s business at all, unless you choose to share it. Most sane people choose to live thus.

Once you decide to operate in the public sector, any expectations of privacy are gone with the wind. And you had to know that, since this ain’t your first rodeo. The law requires one whole helluva lot of disclosure, and lots of politicians (like your late father-in-law, bless him) have raised the bar higher than the law requires, just to make themselves look good avoid even the appearance of a conflict of interest.

Hey, you’re richer than Croesus: good on you, many of us aspire to that. You used the tax laws to your advantage: so do most Americans. You likely have family tragedies that you might not wish to share: same here. So why the secrecy, why the scaredy-cat fuss, why the stonewalling? Because there can’t be anything that bad in your privileged backgrounds – Hell, you’re probably waaaay cleaner than the majority of your prospective subjects fellow citizens.

 If you wanted a completely private life, you should have stayed out of national politics. A wee bit late for that now, though: no matter how Your Royal Romneyness feels, you are going to have to deal with the demands of the new career you and your lackey-boy husband have chosen. Suck it up, buttercup, and open up. And climb off your throne, you look a jackass up there.
