Adam Kokesh has decided that threatening D.C. with thousands of loaded rifles was a bad idea after all, so he has cancelled the “protest”. Seems that local enforcement was determined to, you know, enforce the law.

Mr. Kokesh (spellcheck wanted to change this to “hashish”, which is weirdly appropriate) now wants his “followers” to march around state capitals on July 4th whilst carrying loaded rifles instead: he wants them to demand that the states dissolve the Federal government in what he calls ” the final American Revolution” .

Krazy Kokesh says if threatening lawmakers with loaded long guns does not do the trick, then an armed revolution “may be necessary”.

Mrmmmm, Kokey old buddy, if we really were so oppressed that we needed a revolution, do you think the big bad Fed’ral Gummint would be letting you out of prison so you could “organize” your little comic-opera putsch? Think about it.

Mr. Blunt and Cranky

The United States of America is a secular nation, founded by (mostly) Christian men. They knew the dangers of a Theocracy, and so ruled one out in the first part of the First Amendment to our Constitution. It’s known as the Establishment Clause, and it goes like this:
“Congress shall make no law respecting the establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof”.

Pretty unambiguous, you’d say, and you’d be correct. But lots of corrupt, hateful, greedy, power-mad motherf***ers want to ignore that very clear part of our law and make their own personal church the official church of America. And God help you if you don’t go along, because the Churchies certainly won’t.

People, the law means what it says. If you don’t like the Constitution, feel free to try and amend it. But until then, just obey the friggin’ law. Please?

Yes, you read that right. Texas “representative” Steve Stockman has invited Ted Nugent to be his guest at the State Of The Union address, calling Teddy Poopy Panties a “patriot”.

Said “patriot” having called for the President’s killing on more than one occasion, one can only assume that Mr. Stockman also finds it “patriotic” to kill President Obama.

This writer hopes the Secret Service can climb out of the beds of whores, and sober up long enough to keep an eye on these two traitors.

Mr. Blunt and Cranky would like to start off by saying that John McCain obviously does not care one bucket of warm spit about the recent deaths amongst our Foreign Service corps. If he did care, he’d have been making a similar fuss during Bush The Dumber’s administration, as 12 separate attacks on U.S. Diplomatic facilities resulted in quite a few deaths. This writer has been unable to find any record of McCain screeching his loony-bin conspiracy theories back then.

No, this is nothing more than an attempt to weaken the President for partisan political advantage. And even some conservative-leaning publications are saying McCain has taken leave of his so-called senses: http://www.economist.com/blogs/democracyinamerica/2012/11/susan-rice?fsrc=scn%2Fob 

It is bad enough when politicos wrap themselves in a flag: when they do the same with the bodies of fallen patriots, it is truly disgusting. Not to mention a kick in the nuts to those patriots who made the ultimate sacrifice, all so some wingnut a**hole can raise more money and score points for his stupid little reindeer games.

Please understand this: there is no one on earth who is braver than someone who’ll go, unarmed, to a f***ing war zone. Yeah, that’s what our diplomats do, 24/7/365. They need and deserve our respect and our support. They do not deserve to have their budgets cut by people like McCain, who after weakening their protection use the consequences to play pin-the-blame-on-the-donkey.

If this were an average political scumbucket, we could forgive: but John McCain knows better. He was an honest-to-God war hero and is fully aware of how dangerous it is to be out there on the sharp end in dangerous territory.  For such a man to behave in such an unpatriotic and inhuman manner shows that he is no longer the man he once was.

 For that matter, we may wish to consider whether he ever WAS the man he claimed to be. After watching that vile, spittle-spewing, raging little leaping gnome over the past week, this writer doubts that John McCain was ever a good, principled and decent man. He most assuredly does not appear to be one now.

This picture taken at the Marengo Christian Church in North Wherethehell, Ohio:

This church has a shooting range out back, which is crazy enough right there: also, it freaks out the neighbors and has raised their homeowner’s insurance premiums (and lowered their property values into the bargain). But that’s all OK by the Marengo Churchies, because evidently Jesus wants us all to pack hidden heat so as to blow each other away. Mr. Blunt and Cranky has read a good deal of Bible, and cannot find any verse in which He said that.

Do you really want to have a government run by a load of homicidal, fundagelical loons?  Because this Christian Patriot Militia would dearly love to run your life. If that doesn’t scare you, you’re pretty much in a coma.

This picture taken at the Bible Baptist Church in West Wherethehell, Ohio:

Evidently, they don’t read enough of the Bible they named their church after: anyone who has knows that God has not governed in person since Adam and Eve got evicted from Eden. Every ruler since who claims to be ruling according to God’s will (like Jim Jones, Pope Innocent III, Khomeini and so on) is just another schmuck like the rest of us. So there really isn’t any way to have God rule us here on earth (which, by the way, Jesus Himself said).

These people really need to have their legal wings clipped, and kept from imposing their Sharia-On-Steroids laws on the rest of us.

Mr. B & C

Mr. Blunt and Cranky has been saying that the Supply-Side Voodoo Economics theory that “Republicans” have been pushing for the past few decades is a bunch of mule muffins, and has further challenged adherents thereof to provide impartial proof otherwise. Thus far, no Pro-Trickle proof has been presented.

Meanwhile, the Congressional Research Service (said Congress being under the effective control of the Repubs, mind you) has just put out a report saying that the Reagan/Bush/Romney plan does not work, and has never worked. The first link is a summary news story; the second is the actual report, suitable for OCD data freaks like your humble correspondent.

Here’s the money quote from the Congressional Research Service:

“The results of the analysis suggest that changes over the past 65 years in the top marginal tax rate and the top capital gains tax rate do not appear correlated with economic growth. The reduction in the top tax rates appears to be uncorrelated with saving, investment, and productivity growth. The top tax rates appear to have little or no relation to the size of the economic pie.

However, the top tax rate reductions appear to be associated with the increasing concentration of income at the top of the income distribution”.

All y’all got that? The Romney/Ryan plan will do nothing to create jobs or boost the economy. It WILL, however, make those two rich f***s even richer, along with their cronies. They are pushing a plan that will screw us all, while lining their own pockets.

You might not call that criminal behavior –  politicians running on a platform that enriches themselves at the expense of the nation they profess to “serve”. This writer does. And if you vote for them, you’re just as guilty as they are.

Mr. B & C

Granted, a lot of people don’t like the President. Mr. Blunt and Cranky would venture to say that this has likely been true of every President. And during the reign of Bush the Dumber, many people on the Left and in the Center waxed quite wroth at his every action. Indeed, individuals of many political persuasions said some pretty inflammatory things, sometimes inviting visits from those polite, clean-cut Secret Service boyos (you, know, the ones with the Matrix-style earpieces). It got scary at times, indeed it did, the things that were said and the way in which they were said.

But things are different today: instead of individuals advocating resistance and/or revolution (armed and otherwise) against the lawful authorities, we have government officials urging such actions. One example of loud-mouthed politicos speaking thus:

http://news.yahoo.com/blogs/lookout/texas-judge-warns-possible-civil-war-president-obama-230545603.html

Short version for the link-averse:

A local judge is convinced that Obama will marshal the troops of the United Nations and lead them to his little pisspot of a Texas town to take it over.

First of all, why in Hell would anyone want to do so? And secondly, how could anyone who has watched the United Nations believe that it could agree upon such a course of action? The U.N. can’t agree on what to have for lunch or who should pick up the check, ferchrissakes: they are going to agree on taking over the United States and who would fund such an operation? Puh-leeze.

There is a larger issue in play here: instead of concerned citizens  talking smack against the government, it is governmental officials talking smack against the government. Government against government. The last time we heard this type of bluster, one government organization promising to shoot the s*** out of another government organization?

Oh, it was a little tiff in the middle 1800’s. The Civil War. You might have heard of it.

To all the blowhard paranoid conspiracy theorists who are currently threatening armed revolt while also sucking on the taxpayers’ collective teat: shut the f***ing f*** up, mother***ers. You are paid to be part of government, not to destroy it. There are words for people like you: treasonous, seditious, traitorous…little pleasantries like that.

Mr. B & C

Josh Mandel, a scumbucket of truly magnificent proportions, has outdone even his own scumbucket self. Somewhere in Hell, legendary scumbuckets like Al Capone are bowing in admiration of this kid, who has taken brazen scumbucketry to a level that is beyond the imagination of mere mortal crooks. Since he got himself elected Treasurer of the State O’ Ohio:

He has almost never shown up for critical meetings for a committee he chairs;

He railed against his predecessor for appointing unqualified cronies, and then proceeded to do likewise;

He has violated open records laws;

And after promising not to run for Senate if he was elected Ohio State Treasurer, started running for the Senate before the vote counting was completed for his Treasurer election.

Pretty scummy, but sadly, not out of the ordinary these days. But Mr. Mandel, in order to rise above the norm, had more scum in his bucket – oh yes, he did:

http://thinkprogress.org/election/2012/07/27/590481/josh-mandel-shorting-treasury-bonds/

Short version for those who never click links: Josh Mandel holds bonds that would pay off big-time if the U.S. Government failed to raise the debt ceiling, thus causing a default. And goshgollygeewhizawshucksreally, he has pledged to vote against raising the debt ceiling if he is elected to the Senate.

That goes beyond a conflict of interest: that is treason. Yes, Mister Blunt and Cranky is calling it treason. Look up the word in a dictionary if you don’t like it. Josh Mandel wants to use a position of power within the government in order to undermine and damage said government, while lining his own scummy, traitorous, un-American pockets.

What an enormous scumbucket is Josh Mandel.  This blogger will vote against Mandel, and he does not care if the Dems are running a deep-fried cheese log against him.
