    People we is not wrapped tight

    If you ever had any question as to the validity of Fox News, I present this.  Go ahead.  Click on the link.  I’ll wait.  That is of course followed by the usual greek chorus which, if you didn’t know, includes allegations that our President is gay.  That in of itself is offensive.  They can’t get him on any thing else so he must be gay.  Except for one thing.  As usual they are full of shit.  Don’t believe me.  Let’s try on the Stars and Stripes and see what their take is.  They must be puppets of Obama’s socialist gay jihadist agenda.  Or maybe Fox News is full of shit.…

    And that’s the way it was

    It’s a shame the government couldn’t get healthcare.gov to work properly.  People waiting and then getting thrown out, having to log back in.  What a pain in the butt!  They tell us we have to get insurance and then the damned website won’t work.  Except even the Washington Post couldn’t find all bad with the system.  As a matter of fact she managed to find some places it was working pretty damned well.  Like California.  You know, the land of fruits and nuts. Here’s the thing, since when did something work correctly right out of the box on a computer?  I write contracts and take listings on a system called…

    Another day older and deeper in debt

    I’m not done beating on Ted Cruz.  I still think he’s a Cuban sleeper cell.  He is more disruptive to our country that Al Qaeda.  But on the subject of disruptions, the BART strike.  I stand with the workers.  I stand with them because they aren’t asking for that much. Did you know that crime against BART workers increased from 9% to 31% over the last year?  A BART worker has a 1 in 3 change of being assaulted on the job.  For comparison’s sake, you have about an 11% chance of being assaulted or killed if you are a California cop.  That’s a smidge better than one in ten…

    And it’s been the ruin of many a poor boy

    What utter bullshit. Sarah Palin and Ted Cruz at the World War II memorial?  Bullshit. $24 billion dollars is what those jackholes just spent.  $24 billion dollars to screw everything up for nothing.  Bullshit. I cannot imagine the circumstance that would ever allow me to take another Republican even halfway seriously again.  Except maybe Senator Rep. King who was the voice of reason from the right from the get go.  On Ted Cruz: “The fact is, if you come up with a strategy that’s going to shutdown the government of the United States, and you have no way of winning, you’re either a fraud, or you’re totally incompetent. So he…

    Not in a house. Not in a box. Not with a mouse. Not with a fox.

    I am really amazed at the stupidity out there.  I just saw something where the right wing said that only 17% of the government was shut down.  No, idiots, almost 80% of the government is shut down.  They are so sure they know what’s going on but never stop to investigate the numbers.  Here’s a number.  The shutdown is costing the American people $12.5 million dollars per hour.  You can watch CNN’s stopwatch, see the hours and multiply to see how much of your money the teabaggers have wasted.  As of this writing it’s around $2.1 BILLION dollars.  Wasted by John Boehner, Ted Cruz, Eric Cantor, Grover Norquist, Karl Rove…

    And don’t criticize what you don’t understand

    It is clearly time for me to weigh in on this idiotic government shutdown.  But first. So when I read this morning that 56% of Americans believe it would be bad if the debt ceiling isn’t raised on October 17th, I think 44% of those people don’t have any idea what they’re talking about. If you think this shutdown is a good thing, you are an idiot.  Period.  Did you see the news last night?  Who the hell do you think pays for all of those signs that say that the National Park is closed?  Hint: it’s not Obamacare.  It’s you, moron.  Did you know that every government agency puts…
