Let me count the ways

My first blog wearing glasses.

I am here to tell you that the entire Tea Party movement is a house of cards.  Furthermore, I want to inform you, that the majority of members thereof, are douchebags.  I do lament the absence of, and pine for a third party, but as far as this one, you’ve got to be fucking kidding me.

Dickheads.  Asshats.

Loose lipped cashiers all of them.  When Michele Bachman, Sarah Palin and Dick Armey are blowing your skirt up, you’re not in Kansas anymore.  You’re in a place none of them would ever admit to but are invested in.  That they don’t understand where they are leading you speaks volumes about their intelligence and yours if you ascribe.  The Tea Party is a fool’s paradise.

I’m not sure how many of them realize as much, but the term “teabag”, is a verb and has long been reference, a colloquial advent of the contemporary American vernacular,  for the act of a man placing his ball sack on the chin or face of another man.  It really is most of what needs to be said here.  It honestly is.  All you need to know.

Still with me?

These proud adherents, are both best and generously explained as confused.  I prefer the word ‘fools’.  They imagine somehow that their reason has to do with the admirable notion that taxation sans representation is egregiously unjust.  Indeed, it’s the only thing they are right about despite it having nothing at all to do with what they are up to or claim to oppose.  They have no idea.

It can and does say all manner of preposterous things about the American Electorate.  It insults my intelligence.  It’s fucking absurd.  It baffles and confounds me.

The blind attempting to lead the naked.  Dumbshits whistling and gesturing at the willfully ignorant and tragically confused.

See, the middle class, what’s left of it, now enjoys one of the biggest tax cuts in history.  Tax returns are up by 10%.  95% of American tax payers are enjoying the lowest rates since 1955 -sourced from The Rachel Maddow show.  The cuddly whip smart lesbian.  I’m hetero so I want her to change her hair.  88% of said Teaparty disciples  don’t know as much.  They all watch FOX.  How tragic is that?

It’s a simple as the roads they drive, the police and fire departments, medicaid, medicare and social security they depend upon, to say nothing of the world’s most powerful military, ever and by far, in a long history of very powerful war engines and military industrial commerce.  Big business.  Huge business.   Literally,the biggest business on the planet.


They are a simple folk.  What the mad fuck are they so afraid of?  What are they so angry about?

They know not at all what they would object to.

They inhabit a vacuum.  Fools.

They couldn’t be bothered when Dumbya was at the wheel.  They cannot tell you with any coherence what they object to.  They plainly, don’t know.  They are quite simply, pissed off.  And that, is all they are.  All they are.  Life sucks so they need to be mad.  They want to be mad.  And they just happen to be ignorant racists.  They see Mexicans busting ass for six or eight bucks an hour and refuse to own that it could be them.  That it might be them.  Fear of a diverse planet.  Fear of of a black man that has already helped most of them in far more substantial ways than any President in their adult lives.

Jackin’ shit up right and left.

Fear of God.

Assholes and idiots.  You stupid fucks.

It chaps my ass, these dipshits have at best, vague reasons for being so fired up, and they can’t explain it.  They know not what they do, they don’t even know why.  Willful ignorance.  Taking pride in causing some shit.  Packing heat to some non violent, peaceful, political event.  Intellectual laziness and dishonesty.  Flammable.  They consistently subject themselves to and prostrate themselves for, something so profoundly ridiculous that it can’t be explained and makes even less sense in any historical context whether it be recent or ancient.

“The wealthiest 10 percent of Americans now have a larger share of total income than they ever have in records going back nearly a century — an even larger amount than during the Roaring Twenties, the last time the US saw such similar disparities in wealth……….According to Saez’s study, which Nobel prize-winning economist Paul Krugman drew attention to at his New York Times blog, the top 10 percent of earners in America now receive nearly 50 percent of all the income earned in the United States, a higher percentage than they did during the 1920s.” -RAW STORY

“We may have democracy, or we may have wealth concentrated in the hands of a few, but we can’t have both.” -Supreme Court Justice Louis Brandeis

” The concept of wealth is of significance in all areas of economics, especially development economics, yet the meaning of wealth is context-dependent and there is no universally agreed upon definition. Various definitions and concepts of wealth have been asserted by various individuals and in different contexts.[2] Defining wealth can be a normative process with various ethical implications, since often wealth maximization is seen as a goal or is thought to be a normative principle of its own.” -Wikifuckinpedia

A Plutocracy.  Not an oligarchy.

Wake up.

Ahem.  What’s crazy is they kinda want to hang the rich.  It’s mad because everything they participate in is a thinly veiled concerted effort to further the flow of filthy lucre to those that would eventually enslave their dumb asses.  All these, who as a class, as in used to be “middle class”, have ceased to matter, yet they rail and snarl in favor of what causes their unrest to begin with.  I’ll put my toe in the water and call them all men who don’t realize they are costumed in dresses.  Elaborate rhinestone purses.  Silly stupid shoes.

Ladies and gentlemen, the Great Unwashed, the 1/4 paradigm, doth march with open weaponry.  Forgive them for they know not what they do.  Or not.  Stupid fucks.  No one wants to take your goddamn guns away if for no other reason than we can’t.  We can’t.  It will never happen.  It’s done.  Leave it alone.  I know a good many of you have them that shouldn’t.  At the end of the day, it’s all they seem to care about.  They are unable to define themselves in any other way or by any other cause save abortion, taxes and the most twisted hypocritical Christianity that I’m tired of being made to pay attention to.  It’s you I have a problem with, not your God.

Jesus is just allright with me but his fans are losers.  They eat paste.  They throw tantrums.  They act like assholes.

It is ultimately a sad thing, a uniquely one dimensional thing.  Foregone sacred by city blocks.  Bereft of humor and decency by leagues under the sea.

“Faced with looming deficits, Reagan raised taxes again in 1983 with a gasoline tax and once more in 1984, this time by $50 billion over three years, mainly through closing tax loopholes for business. Despite the fact that such increases were anathema to conservatives–and probably cost Reagan’s successor, George H.W. Bush, reelection–Reagan raised taxes a grand total of four times just between 1982-84.”  -firedoglake

Every icon they foist and worship is a tiger constructed of the thinnest paper.  I’m sick of it.  You lie to us and yourselves.  You suck.  Teaparty and/or Teabaggers are far beyond reprehensible.

Not only did Reagan raise taxes over and over, but he sucked off the rich and we suddenly won the cold war.  A simple strategy.  We out spent them with your children’s money.  Walk in the park.  Ronnie was no sharper than a marble, but he didn’t bend us over the stove nearly as bad as Junior Dumbya.

Tax cuts to the rich under Dumbya cost us two Trillion, with a “T”, dollars.  Honestly and seriously.  No shit.

I am weary of them.  The media affords them far too much light.  On their very best day, twenty five percent of all living and breathing Americans.  Thus far, their biggest achievement has been to allow the stupid to feel a little better about themselves for not being so shamelessly manipulated and therefore stupid.  It’s just that they have been so shamelessly manipulated and are therefore acutely and chronically stupid.  Congratulations to one and all.

I hate stupid and there’s no chance of fixing it.  They just aren’t willing.  They honestly don’t care.

At the same time, I am curious to see the effect on the vote.  The GOP.  I’m wondering whether the season may not be so bad for the Democrats because ham fisted idealogues cannot hold they smoke.  What we have here is a bifurcated tail.  Bacon and chocolate.  Not for everybody but I’m on board.  Let’s see what happens next.

Bacon and chocolate.

What crawls up my snatch is the deliberate obfuscation and subsequent fomenting of fear and lies.

It’s true that the great unwashed  have been diabolically misled, but it’s still their fault.  Ignorance of the law is no more an excuse than lack of intellectual curiosity.

Really.  The Tea Party is stupid.  So goddamn dumb as to not realize that the tax rate they’ll be paying has been rolled back to the middle of the last century.  For the first time in a long time they are getting unhammered.  95% are seeing a reduction in federal income tax.  5% aren’t.  That last tax cut to the 5% cost us two trillion dollars.

Did I mention with a ‘T’?

That was dumb.

No Shit.

Look at my thumb.  Gee you’re dumb.

Now we are in Afghanistan again.  And broke.  Broken.  Our debt is less than most European countries.  America is too big to fail.  Really.  It is.  Therein lies the rub.

Bacon and chocolate.

I am rubber and you are glue.

Drinks for my friends.
