Best Presidental Quote EVER

Better than Nixon saying (as Vice President) “you won’t have Dick Nixon around anymore” Of course he lied. Later he said “I am not a crook!” Again, he perjured.

Trump was very succinct. To the point. “I’m fucked” … actually, he’s sodomized with a shovel, sideways so it would hurt more.

‘Lesser-evil’ politics demoralize and demobilize progressives

‘Both parties have been driving the country in the same direction for decades now, and towards the same destination. Their road is to a future in which the government safety net is dismantled, working conditions and wages decline to be globally “competitive,” and the power of capital is unrestrained by labor. The Republicans want to speed things up so we get there faster, while the Democratic driver prefers a slightly slower, cruise-control pace. But the car is heading in the same direction regardless of who is driving.’ —(Taken from Reviewing the failed strategy of the ‘pragmatists’)

Today, this message that both corporate parties were bad for the country was taken to the 6,000 people who came to hear Romney speak in Colorado Springs at the airport. I would say that about 1 out of 5 responded favorably to this position as many Republicans themselves don’t really feel very positive about the Romney/ Ryan message.

Romney tries to rally his racist supporters by arousing ire of NAACP

Mitt Romney went today to the NAACP national meeting in order to rally his own White racist supporter base, who dislike him because he is a Mormon, but hate Obama even more because the is Black. By getting booed by the NAACP he showed his supporters in Redneck America that he may be a rich Mormon, but he ain’t Black at least, nor for what the Black people want either. So Rednecks, come out and vote for Mitt! Don’t just stay at home and sit the election out. It was a disgusting performance f(art) by the Republican Party.

I don’t believe I have ever seen such an insincere, calculated, and YES, outright creepy speech in my life. Check it out! To the NAACP it must have been as if they were watching a cobra in action. Speech by Mitt Romney at the NAACP Convention 2012

Romney and friends were ‘a pack of dogs’ and still are

“I saw it with my own eyes,” said Maxwell, of the anecdote first reported by the Washington Post . Maxwell said Romney held the scissors helping to cut the hair of a student, John Lauber, who was presumed to be gay and who had long hair. “It was a hack job… clumps of hair taken off.” Maxwell said he held the boy’s arm and leg, describing he and his friends as a “pack of dogs.” (Full article at Former Romney Classmate Describes 'Bullying Supreme' – A 'Pack of Dogs' Who Targeted 'Different' Boy.

The voting booth is the last place to look to see Democracy in Action

Obama versus Romney? ‘How did it come to this? How did democracy in America degenerate into a mind-numbing absurdity? The answer, in a word, is money.’

‘It has transformed what has always been a profound dissociation between what democratic theory promises and the real world of American democracy into a yawning divide. Despite what students are told in civics classes (where they still exist) and what normative theories of democracy propose, democracy in America today has almost nothing to do with rational deliberation and debate, and very little to do with aggregating preferences or reconciling conflicting interests. It is about legitimating government of, by and for the corporate malefactors and Wall Street banksters who own Congress and the White House along with an obscenely large chunk of the nation’s wealth. The Occupy movement has driven this point home, but it was widely appreciated long before Zuccotti Park entered the national consciousness.’ See Andrew Levine’s Why the Voting Booth is the Last Place to Look for Political Change

Jim Bowie’s Noble Gesture of freeing his servant Sam

At the Alamo during the Texas Land Grab Disguised As A Revolution while he was waiting to be overrun and killed.
 
Mighty “white” of him but, hey, the manumission papers were a useless formality. One of the excuses used for stirring up the revolution was “deprivation of property rights” meaning that General Antonio Jose y Maria Lopez de Santa Ana had, through the enforcement of the Guerrero Proclamation, emancipation papers for anybody in Mexico (including, legally, San Antonio) who was held as a slave. This wasn’t done as a slap in the face for the white Anglo colonists, who hadn’t (yet) become quite the pestilence they would later be.

Instead it freed up the Indian and Mestizo slaves owned by the Spanish overlords.

The Mexican Emancipation Proclamation predated the U.S. one by about 4 decades. Not exactly a “backwards and ignorant” nation.

So Sam was already technically free.

Three slaves were known to be at the Battle of the Alamo; a boy named John was killed, while William B. Travis’s slave Joe and James Bowie’s slave Sam survived to be freed by the Mexican Army (from wikipedia)

What got me thinking about it is Rick GoodHair Perry announcing his candidacy. Not just any Jackass Retardican, he’s one of those currently celebrating the 150th (sesquicentennial) anniversary of the founding of the Confederacy and the start of a four year campaign in which a half million Americans were murdered by other Americans over the States’ “right” to systematically deprive Americans of their liberty.

But of course to hear the various Confederate Heritage groups lie through their bloodstained teeth, it wasn’t actually about Slavery… just the states’ “rights” to maintain slavery, and also they smoothly lie that it wasn’t about Racial Hatred, even though the Americans they were holding as slaves happened to be of a much darker skin color. Slavery, in the Rick Perry-Republican-TeaBag DoubleSpeak, is an act of love.

And, it’s not like Perry actually believes the lies he tells. His FOLLOWERS, however, are exactly that STUPID that they do.
Massive underfunding of Public Education shown in all it’s glorious wonder. Look for the Texas Ignorance Campaign to spread across AmeriKKKa oh, wait, it already has, never mind!

The RepubliKlan Party hates public education because Public Ignorance is their one power base.

Just look at the Morons in Iowa and the Racist Lunatic they just selected in their straw poll.

Rick GoodHair, latest actor in the insane RNC puppet show

Aside from the constant pain in my destroyed feet ankle and left knee being a minute by minute reminder of the “Texas Miracle” economic program… There’s the fact that the Reddest of the Red States are net debtors to the Federal Government they claim to despise. Corporate Warfare Welfare being the worst offender but also the massive amount of people who are eligible for food stamps (such as it is) AFDC and utilities assistance even though they’re working two jobs at slave wages. Keep the workers broke, in debt, and if they’re broken on the job, like myself, we’re told that we should have squeezed insurance money and “down time” money out of the wage which isn’t enough to pay our bills.

The net effect is we’re paying the corporations for the privilege of being their slaves.

Then the stoopit bastard said, many times, that he could and would secede from the United States. Groovy, GoodHair, tres groovie. You can catch the bus to Guatemala or some other banana republic any time you want.

One thing, the three other times Texas actually seceded, 1821 from Spain, 1836 from Mexico and 1861 from the United States the cause was an exaggerated view of Property Rights, and the constitutional prohibition against removing (amongst other things) property without due process. Only the “property” they were talking about was owning the lives and labor of human beings.

Funny thing about that clause, so Noble a Cause when the Confederacy of Dunces pulled that shit…

Now, the PEOPLE they were so worried about no longer being allowed to unlawfully remove their liberty from said PEOPLE, without any more than a pretense of Due Process, before they were born and for the duration of their lives and their childrens lives, well, they’re no longer considered property.

If Ricky the Republitard actually wanted to take Texas out of the Union, it would have to be a UNANIMOUS vote by every person in the state.

To forcibly evict any dissidents from Texas would deprive them of their freedoms and their property without due process.

Gentlemen and Ladies of Colour in Texas are now the majority, and, it’s our family history, we know how “kindly” and with what measure of respect for their rights our ancestors were treated the last three secession sessions.

Maybe his retarded ass should go door-to-door in South Oak Cliff soliciting votes for his Return To The Glory of the (slave plantation) Old South campaign.

And of course kiss some huge military installations goodbye, which was his next trick to balance the Texas Budget. Fat chance.

So now he’s hoping to follow the footsteps of his Thief Mentor GWBush, go to Washing Tundy Sea in order to pull of similar robbery of the U.S. treasury. Why settle for comparatively Petty Theft crimes when they could go straight for the jugular?

But the fact that the Moron, along with similarly morally challenged freaks who make up the “leadership” pool of the RepubliKlan and TeaPotty candidates, actually has a chance of being offered up as a serious candidate for the office of the President of The United States, leads me to conclude that they’re a sideshow distraction.

In circus parlance, “Send in the clowns” meant they had to clean up a particularly untidy mess in one part of the show, so they would darken the area around the dead trapeze artists, or lions contentedly feasting on their suddenly former trainer, bring up the spotlight on another area of the floor and “send in the clowns” to divert attention.

There’s another saying, “I wouldn’t follow him into a whorehouse if he was paying”.

Such as any of the Morally Challenged Congenital Liars the RNC is trotting out as their candidate field.

Coward Ass Romney praising Bush, blasting Obama.

Remember, he’s the one who said he couldn’t enlist in the Army because of his missionary duty. Lying puke. His sons, in his campaign, said they had more important things to do, like getting Daddy elected. When he didn’t even get the nomination, they didn’t join the Babykilling War For Profit that Mr Bush started and they and their Coward Ass Daddy promoted.
Like Coward-ass Father, Like Coward-ass sons.
Mormon ChickenHawk also said that only the Private Corporations who pay his bribes can save America.
