Gentle Reader, if you still believe in small-government “Republicans”, it’s time to stop. Because Jebbie Bush is so Big Brother, he thinks he can decide who lives and who dies. Seriously. Jeb really does accord to himself that God-like power:

Remember the Terri Schiavo case? Jeb overruled the family and doctors in the case, requiring that a brain-dead woman’s body be forcibly kept “alive”. Because it made money for health care providers and got Jeb more votes, and to Hell with the rights of the people involved. Master of Life and Death, Jeb Bush, triumphing over the citizens by his executive decree. Bush’s Personal Death Panel decided who lived and died (until a court smacked him hard enough).

And if you have a baby in a manner Jeb disapproves of, he will punish you. Public shaming, and perhaps other measures legal and extralegal would be used to make the lives of young mothers a living Hell; all because they acted in a “pro-life” manner and gave birth to a child. Sounds like he’d prefer these children not be born at all, doesn’t it?

So Jeb Bush accords himself the power to decide when you can be born, and when you can die? Yes, he does. As does his entire party.Ask yourself just how “small government” can be such if it controls our births and deaths?

The answer is, of course, that Teapublicans are in fact NOT AT ALL in favor of small government. Repubs are the biggest of Big Government types. They’d love to: decide how, when, and if you can reproduce; monitor your phones, mail and Internet activity; control your health care; dictate your financial and social status; and finally force you to die (or not), depending on whatever suits their own financial interests.

Jeb Bush is everything that is wrong with the Teavanglical GOP and all of its idiot adherents. Vote them all out, and quickly, lest you have to go before a “Republican” Death Panel yourself, someday.

Sometimes Mr. Blunt and Cranky happens upon a post that deserves sharing. Thus it is today, with this bit of awesomeness from Internet DJ Mr. Scorpio:

Today, as it just so happens, I found out that Sarah Palin is worth twelve million dollars

Marinate on that thought for a moment: As a person who all but demonstrates the intellectual dexterity of a rusty crankshaft all of the time, she has somehow accumulated twelve million dollars.

Obviously, you don’t need to be smart in order to get rich in America. That much is sure.

Now, how much of that she had before she became America’s most egregious example of poor family planning, I don’t know.

But she’s rich beyond her dreams of avarice now. Scratch that… Her dreams of avarice knows no bounds, as long as there are gaggles of willing rubes for her to grift. Hence, we see her advantage.

Basically, to get rich, all she had to do was invest in a complete lack of scruples. Let’s forget about any moral compass that she may have… It only points toward money.

Just recently, our favorite Wicked Grifter of the North indicated that she may toss her pointed hat into the political ring in some upcoming election. Now we’re talking about a person who’s too moronic to be voted dog catcher, but that’s not going to prevent her from exercising her delusions of grandeur, now is it?

Say whatever you will about this babbling, gun toting wolf murderer, she has a purpose and she has the blindingly stupid belief in herself to achieve that purpose. Personally, I’m aghast that she incoherently blundered her way into accumulating 12 million dollars. This says even less about her than it says about how many people who are walking around today who are willing to give her all of that money.

Many of these people vote, I’m sure of that. And they consistently vote wrong.

Now, I’m not worried for one second that Caribou Barbie is going to stumble into the Oval Office. If she can still operate her lucrative business model in the same way she has for the last six years, getting elected would be too expensive for her and limiting as well.

The grift is on. That’s all that matters. Whatever she does, just remember that no one ever got rich by underestimating the stupidity of the American people.

In Bible Spice’s case, quite the opposite.

Nice takedown of the Sparklemoose, innit? Thanks to the author for allowing this repost. Check out his writing and musical activities.

Mr. Blunt and Cranky

When your Cranky Correspondent was a wee lad, there were Republicans (without quotes) with a sane, sensible platform that mentioned equality, living wages, economic sanity, and lots of reasonable ideals like that. And had the Republican Party remained sane, this writer might still be one (he was raised to be, after all). But then came Kent State and Watergate, and the GOP got spanked. Hard. So the Elephants got angry. Really angry.

That anger is the core of the modern “Republican” party, and once you understand that, everything about their behavior makes sense:

“Why do Repubs seem irrational?” Angry people aren’t rational.

“Why are so many Repubs trying to steal elections?” Because in their irrational anger, they see themselves as victims who are trying to take back what they think is rightfully theirs, never mind the law.

“Why do so many Repubs steal?”
See previous answer.

“Why do Repubs hate minorities, gays, foreigners, and other non-Repubs?” Because they see themselves as a uniquely and horribly wronged people, and if you aren’t one of them, you are the enemy.

“Why do Repubs want to destroy the Constitution as we know it?” Because that Constitution is what Nixon and the Republicans tried to subvert, and it was what was used to thwart their crime spree. Show me a crook who likes the rule of law. Good luck finding one: crooks hate laws.

The problem is, anger by itself is pretty limiting. Repubs have no agenda, only a raging, vindictive, spiteful urge to lash out at the rest of the nation (note: that “rest of” is in fact the majority). And no matter how much damage they inflict, how much wealth they amass, how much power they grasp, it will never be enough. Because all they have is anger. All they can do with that anger is attack.

And eventually, that pathological hatred and rage will be turned upon themselves (indeed, that has already started), eventually destroying the party and perhaps the country as a whole.

It’s too bad that Ford ruled out further spankings of Nixon and his cronies: perhaps that punishment would have taught the Repubs a lesson, but that ship has long since sailed. No, we are stuck with a petulant, spoiled, perpetually angry party that hates us all and is bent on punishing US in return for the slap on the wrist it got.

A forty- year Hissy Fit. A four-decade temper tantrum. And it doesn’t look like ending soon.

Mr. Blunt and Cranky

WTF, America? Idiots like Palin and Graham are praising Putin and slamming our Prexy, Libertarians and Lefties are doing likewise, all while Russia holds a fake election in Crimea and invades a foreign country. Neither of which we are doing.Nor are we committing the many crimes that the Russian government does on a daily basis, while pretty much getting a pass from various Western nitwits.

Three specific examples for the clue-challenged:
Number A: Obama does not control American media, and has no one threatening nuclear strikes against us. Putin does, and has goons that are threatening to turn us “into radioactive ash”.

Letter 2: Neither America nor NATO have sent troops into Ukraine. Russia has.

Thirdly: Obama has taken no steps to expand America’s boundaries by taking over other sovereign nations. Russia
has, more than once.

People who are comparing the two countries are intellectually dishonest at best, clueless perhaps, or useful idiots at worst. America is far from perfect, but our Prexy isn’t busy having gays horse-whipped, taking over the media, or using natural gas to blackmail half of a continent.

Stop it, OK? Just stop it.

Mr. Blunt and Cranky

Honestly, what a bunch of needle-dicked wussy mama’s boys  those “conservative” Teapublicans are. First they put up an image of our President with a noose around his neck, suggesting that he be assassinated and the date thereof be declared a national holiday. They took the picture down to try to cover their smelly asses, but they still got those stinky asses chewed. Then their Facebook page got hit by the Goat Hack, and they are now whining on their new facebook page about the Liberals who hacked the old one.

These pathetic little cowardly bits of pond scum need to nut up or shut up. They violated federal law by advocating the assassination of a sitting President. That is not “free speech”, that is seditious and anti-American criminal behavior. Being called on it does not make them victims, it makes them criminals.

This is something that has been popping up a lot lately – and by “popping up a lot” I mean to say, “picture a five-acre whack-a-mole game on Meth”. Right-Wingnut “Republicans” and other Teabaggers are saying a lot of racist, sexist, un-American trash that in some cases crosses the line into illegal speech, and then playing the Victim Card when their behavior is pointed out to them. So let’s hava a quick refresher on basic definitions:

“Victim” means “someone who has had a crime committed against them”. A “criminal” is “someone who commits a crime”. These racist, inbred, spelling-challenged, America-hating, mama-threw-away-the-baby-and-raised-the-afterbirth f***wits at “America-The Next Generation” fit the second category, not the first. They are aggressors, not victims.

Keep this in mind  when you are dealing with anyone, criminal or not, who: bullies;  acts in an intimidating manner; uses hate speech; or who is acting just barely within the law (people like Phil Robertson, Sarah Palin, and the like). They are not victims. They are the offenders, not the offended.

And whenever someone who is the offending party claims to be the injured party, we all need to call “bulls***” at every opportunity. Teach these cowardly little s***s the difference between a real victim and some gutless little weasel with a great big mouth and a teeny-tiny little pair. Let them know  which category they fall into, and that we know where they belong.

Mr. Blunt and Cranky was heading to The Place He Is Paid To Go To this morning, and heard Virginia’s Governor state (as if it were a fact) that Obama has added seven trillion dollars to the national debt.

Not true, of course, but it’s hardly uncommon to hear public figures lying, inventing “facts” whenever they like, stretching the truth, and generally saying whatever serves their purpose du jour without a single thought for truth or accuracy. And it just seems to get worse and worse.

From wack jobs like Sarah Palin who claim that the Obaminator is getting ready to kill us all, to the crazy radio guy who thinks the Prexy is the Antichrist, to multiple mouths spouting the canard that Obama upped the debt by five trillion dollars or more, there is no shortage of lying blather. Indeed, it is so prevalent that it has become commonplace.

And why does it happen? The answer is both infuriating and depressing: they make s*** up and lie because they can.

Think back, gentle reader, and ask yourself how often these zeebs get challenged by the “reporters” who work for the “news” media? Almost never. Guv McDonnell wasn’t this morning, the NPR “journalist” just let the lie fly by. And so the average schmoe believes the lies.

Crimes are committed because criminals find it worthwhile to do so. In this case, politicians, pundits and similar scumballs know that they can say any old thing that suits their sleazy, corrupt, un-American purposes.

They do it because the media lets them. They do it because we let them. If we the people insisted on punishing the lying liars, there would be fewer of them, and fewer lies being told to us.

What kind of America will we have, if we continue to encourage people to lie to us 24/7/365? Ask yourself that question, and then nut up and call the liars out. Like this post just did. If we all demand the truth, we’ll get more of it.
