Because it’s pretty effing obvious that they’ve never read his works. He never promoted unregulated free markets: in fact, he advocated for individuals and governments to control capitalism, and to take into account the needs of people, no matter which economic and social strata they may occupy. Our “Republican” “leaders” and their corporate paymasters are willfully ignorant of these facts, damn their manifold “souls”.

A few sample Adam Smith quotes for all y’all who haven’t read him:

“It is not very unreasonable that the rich should contribute to the public expense, not only in proportion to their revenue, but something more than in that proportion.”

Yeah, but don’t tell that to the BoehnerBots.

“No society can surely be flourishing and happy of which by far the greater part of the numbers are poor and miserable.”

Again, the Baggers and their puppeteers have evidently missed this little bon mot.

“Our merchants and masters complain much of the bad effects of high wages in raising the price and lessening the sale of goods. They say nothing concerning the bad effects of high profits. They are silent with regard to the pernicious effects of their own gains. They complain only of those of other people.”

Pretty obvious reference to the 1-percenters of his day and ours, innit?

:“The great source of both the misery and disorders of human life, seems to arise from over-rating the difference between one permanent situation and another. Avarice over-rates the difference between poverty and riches: ambition, that between a private and a public station: vain-glory, that between obscurity and extensive reputation. The person under the influence of any of those extravagant passions, is not only miserable in his actual situation, but is often disposed to disturb the peace of society, in order to arrive at that which he so foolishly admires.”

Sounds a lot like Repubs and Teabagggers, does it not?

More of his quotes can be found here: https://www.goodreads.com/author/quotes/14424.Adam_Smith But if you can, you really ought to read all of his Wealth of Nations writings, because the man was the kind of capitalist that has nearly gone extinct in these decadent modern times.

This writer hopes that whatever eventual tribunal metes out justice to these Teabagging scumbuckets remembers one more Adam Smith quote:

“Mercy to the guilty is cruelty to the innocent.”

Mr. Blunt and Cranky

P.S.: What prompted this rant? Why, ’twas this article on a skanky lobbyist who played both sides of the street during the recent ACA imbroglio. Said scuzzbucket is the recipient of ALEC’s “Adam Smith Free Enterprise Award”. ALEC is, of course, the über-teabagger lobbying group that wants to ban all regulations, so the very notion of those f***wits naming an award after Adam Smith is so far beyond ironic as to be beyond belief.

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

Here is how the process actually works:
Step One: Congress decides how much money to spend and passes bills so the rest of the government can spend it.
Step Two: since Congress rarely considers whether or not we can afford all of the spending they authorize, there is usually a budget deficit, which increases the national debt.
Step Three: the Congress allows the treasury to borrow more money to cover the spending that Congress ordered. That is called “raising the debt ceiling”.

Pretty simple, and you may have noticed something: the word “President” appeared nowhere in the process. That is because the Executive cannot and does not allocate the vast majority of Federal funding. The Prexy has damn-all to do with the funding levels established by Congress. All he can do is execute the funding (which is why it is called the “Executive Branch”).

So why does Congress ask the Prexy for “concessions” or “reforms”, whenever the debt ceiling need lifting? The answer, Gentle Reader, is this: Congress is too scared to admit that they are responsible for our massive budget and the resulting red ink, so they play “pin the blame on Obama”. If the taxpaying public knew that Congress was to blame, they might vote their legislators out of office.

And the one thing no Senator or Congresscritter can bear is the idea of having to actually work for a living. So they pretend that it is the eeeeevil Obaminator who is responsible for the deficit. And the “News” media plays chorus to the Teapublican lies.

Remember this when you next cast your ballot. Congress owns the budget, the deficit and the debt. It’s time for those lazy, cowardly millionaires on Capitol Hill to nut up and accept responsibility for their actions, and to stop lying to us about who is to blame for the consequences of said actions.

Mr. Blunt and Cranky

Yesterday, we talked about how liberal demonstrations are ignored by the media, even if tens of thousands are present and protesting. Here is a picture of one small part of that crowd, which was NOT covered on major US “news” outlets:

Now we bring you a few photos of Right-Wingnut “events” that WERE covered by that same media. See if you can spot the difference:

Yep, if you are a Teabagger, Birtherbot, Right Wingnut or a “Republican” of any sort, then the media will show up and cover your “rally”, never mind how small or ridiculous it is. But if you are anybody else, sorry, but Bubba’s having gotten a blowjob back in the 90’s or a “celebrity” sighting is far more newsworthy than you are.

Since the right-wingnuts and Teapubs own the media, this may not be surprising. But it remains infuriating.

Mr. Blunt and Cranky

After all the failures, you’d think the Baggers would realize that most Americans don’t buy their line of snake oil. But nooooooo. Even though their “mass uprisings” keep having more Porta-Potties in attendance than people, these Wingnuts keep on planning more “revolutions”, as if their bully-boy tactics will somehow win our hearts and minds if they do it often enough.

Now, though, they have cranked the crazy up to 11: they are trying to blackmail God. “God Will Bless Operation American Spring, Or Prepare For Violence” is the message from Teabagging generalissimo Harry Riley.

Mr. Riley, who apparently suffers from delusions of adequacy, says that he has “faith” that The Lord, having “bathed” their “American Spring”, will ensure its success. And if God does not make it work, then he and his cohorts will start killing people.

That, Gentle Reader, is blackmail. These Teapublicans are threatening our Congress, the President, the cops, our military, and even the Supreme Being: “give us 100% of what we want, or we will murder millions of people”. That isn’t just yap-flapping nonsense, it is a criminal act.

We may not like our elected officials (this writer strongly dislikes most of his), but they were elected. If we don’t like the results, we try harder next election. That is how Democracies and Republics operate.

But these pisswilly little buggers aren’t willing to respect the Founding Fathers and the Constitution. Also, they don’t respect the God they claim to worship. Teapubs don’t, in fact, respect anything or anyone who does not agree with and comply with them 100% of the time, 24/7/365.

When you start threatening God with waging war against your neighbors unless He grants your every wish, you aren’t just barking mad: you’re a dangerous, criminal, violent psycho case who needs to be locked in the giggle ward until you return to sanity . So it is with “Republican conservatives”, Tebaggers, and all the other gun-humping wussy-boy revolutionary wannabees.

Blackmailing God. Seriously. How can anyone support them?

Mr. Blunt and Cranky

Holy Mary, can you believe this crap? This “Republican” is such a racist, anti-American f***wad, even other Teabaggers are disgusted:

ST. PETERSBURG — As Americans honored the memory of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. on Monday, a Republican candidate for Florida House District 68 said President Barack Obama should be hanged for war crimes.

“I’m past impeachment,” Joshua Black wrote on Twitter. “It’s time to arrest and hang him high.”

Do you need any more information? Teapublicans are a load of treasonous, racist, murderous louts who need to be voted out of office at every opportunity. Because to elect them is to give them approval.

And unless you like lynching black men, you REALLY shouldn’t approve of racist Teabaggers.

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

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

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

And it isn’t like they are trying to hide it. From the “Republican” party official who derides Democrats and “lazy blacks”, to the jackass waving a confederate flag at our black President, to the Congresscritter who compared Obama with a tar baby, the racism is out there and man, there’s a helluva lot of it.

Hell, even the KKK says that these Repubs and Teabaggers are racists. When people who count “racist” as a compliment call someone a racist, you can take that to the bank.

Not liking Obama does not make one a racist (this writer doesn’t, and isn’t, respectively). Saying racist s***, doing racist s***, and supporting racist s*** heads makes one a racist. And that is what these “conservative”, “Republican”, teabag-devouring, mouth-breathing fools with room-temperature IQs are. Racists.
