What a week
This week Shelby County Alabama says that racism no longer exists, so what say we all just leave traditionally racist states like Alabama to deal with its Nigras the way it sees fit…and other mixed nuts.
Now that Racism is Dead…
Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia called the 1965 Voting Rights Act a racial entitlement. He said that Congress can’t be trusted to do the right thing and end it because they are all worried about getting re-elected, so the SCOTUS will have to cowboy up and find it unconstitutional.
OK, Justice Scalia, let’s expand the VRA so that all 50 states have to get permission from the Justice Department before they can change voting laws. I live in Ohio, and they tried to suppress the “liberal” vote here by changing up election laws.
If we expanded the VRA in that way, then, white people would have their right to vote protected, as well. With panic-fueled efforts by the old White men to institutionalize apartheid, I want the Justice Department keeping an eye out for my voting rights.
States run by right-wing legislatures are starting to monkey with how Electoral College votes are apportioned in their states. Virginia’s legislature has toyed with the idea of distributing Electoral Votes by voting district instead of the current manner of winner-take-all.” If those rules were in effect in 2012, President Obama’s narrow popular vote win in Virginia would have been an Electoral landslide for Romney.
Voting rights for everyone that doesn’t vote Republican are being assailed like never before. I guess they figure if you can’t win a fair fight; Cheat!
As I have said many times before…Suck It Scalia.
Still dickish after all these years…
Dick Cheney’s old heart grew too black and too evil, so he got a new heart. That’s why he’s still around and we still have to listen to him tell us that he was the only one with balls in the Bush/Cheney administration.
Showtime commissioned a documentary from R. J. Cutler entitled “The World According to Dick Cheney.” In this film, Dick calls everyone else a pussy, including Dubya and Condi Rice, and insists again that he and he alone was the only thing between America and her enemies.
Dick Cheney, a man that claimed one each of every draft deferment allowed during the Vietnam War, insists that our national honor, torture, more than 5,000 dead Americans, untold numbers of dead Iraqis, and $60,000,000,000.00 (Yep, that’s billions!) was a small price to pay to get the wrong son-of-a-bitch, destroy a country, fail to rebuild it, and leave it on the verge of dissolution.
Putting community organizing in its place…
“WASHINGTON — A new short-term budget bill introduced on Monday by House Republicans includes a bizarre provision banning federal funding to anti-poverty group ACORN, despite the fact that the group has already been stripped of federal funding — and has been defunct for nearly three years.” (From the Huffington Post)
This stroke of genius is only the beginning…House Republicans will soon sponsor a measure that will allow them to dig up Ted Bundy’s corpse and electrocute him one more time to make sure he’s dead.
You do understand that when a Republican hears or reads the word ACORN, they think, “Black people.”
If I give you more coal, I won’t have so much…
Corporate profits hit an all-time high in 2012. The Dow Jones Industrial Average just hit its record high point this week. Wall Street is back, Baby!
Wow, I wish the American people could get a recovery package like Wall Street got, but Wall Street owns Congress so that’s not going to happen. Face it…our elected representatives hardly give a shit about us.
From the Christmas Eve 1939 CBS Campbell Playhouse adaptation of “A Christmas Carol:”
“SCROOGE: Hey, hey, you there! Bob Cratchit! Come here! What are you doing
BOB CRATCHIT: I’m only putting a bit more coal in the fire, Mr. Scrooge,
seeing it’s so cold in there, sir.
SCROOGE: You put that coal back into the scuttle! A fire! A fire, indeed. I
can tell you, if you use coal at that rate, you and I will soon be parting
company, Bob Cratchit. You understand that? There’s many a young fella’d like
your situation, you know.
BOB CRATCHIT: I’m sorry, sir. My fingers were getting a little stiff with the
SCROOGE: Then put on your mittens.”
I want to bid a fine hamster of a man goodbye. Our beloved Hoover succumbed to old age this week. He was preceded in death by his brother Butters and all the other animal children that made our lives happier…all of which could do a better job than anyone in Washington, D. C.
Hoover was a sweet soul. Gail and I will miss him.
