The US government is so screwed up, it doesn’t seem to know which end is up. Washington has finally settled the debt ceiling, a short term budget, which end on January 15, and the debt ceiling ends on February 7.
For 16 days, a certain amount of federal employees didn’t get paid, national parks closed, but in those 16 days, both houses of Congress collected their pay checks. This is not right, and they should be ashamed of themselves, for accepting those checks.
Come next January, we’re supposed to go through with this bullshit again, and probably another three months after that.
It’s maddening at what goes on down in DC. It’s one big Dysfunctional Family, and many other foreign countries must be scratching their collective heads, at what the hell is going on.
Since the government is shut down, for the second time in the last 17 years, the people who are so supposed to represent us, the Congress and the Senate, should have their pay reduced. They should get the minimum wage, which is around $8.00 an hour, pay for their own health insurance, and no more than two weeks vacation.
The people who are supposed to be working for us, get away with a lot of bullshit, and could care less about what is going on. True, there are some good people in both houses of Congress, but there the ones who can’t seem to drill it into the so called Tea Party nuts of the Republican Party. These clowns think they can do just what the hell they feel like doing, and that is putting the screws to ordinary people, who have to work, or don’t work, because of different reasons.
How would they like it, if they was paid the minimum wage?
It’s time for them to stop nit picking, and get real.
Mitt Romney has a chat with this 63 gay Viet Nam War Veteran, and lets say it didn’t go to well for Romney.
On Saturday, V.P. Joe Biden campaigned in Florida, as 2,000 people listened to him speak. On the other hand, Paul Ryan drew a crowd of 725 in Derry, New Hampshire.
Florida has 27 electoral college votes, NH 4. It doesn’t make sense to be in a state that has a small vote, compared to the some of the bigger states like NY, California, Illinois, etc.
So in a nutshell, Romney/Ryan keep drawing small crowds, and Obama/Biden keep drawing the bigger crowds, it seems to be a no brainer that the voters are tired of listening to the same old stale Reagan & Bush bullshit.

Anne Romney said her biggest concern about her husband Mitt, is his “mental well being”. She also wished that she never got involved in his presidential run for office, but she said the reason was, no jobs were created during Obama’s first term. Either this woman is looking at the world through rose colored glasses, or she is being a plain ass about it, like the idiots, who collectively would tell same old lies, day in, day out.

With Mitt Romney talking about the 47%, the ones that pay no taxes, but are on food stamps, welfare, or retired people who pay no taxes (income) etc., etc. Well now. Mitt doesn’t mention his father George was on general relief, when the family fled Mexico in 1912. And here’s a video of Mitt’s mom talking about receiving help.
When President Obama stopped in at the Big Apple Pizza in Ft. Pierce, Florida, he was greeted with a hug and lifted up in the air by the owner, Scott Van Duzer. Because of what Duzer did, he is getting a lot of flack from the Republican crazies, who need to get a life, and stop acting like the pathetic assholes that they are.
Porn Star Jenna Jameson endorsed Mitt Romney, the 2012 Republican candidate for President. The reason she says is, “when your rich, you want a Republican in office.” Now, one has to wonder what Mittens has to say about this, and will be red in the face.

Mitt Romney’s traveling press secretary Rick Gorka has no class at all, telling reporters to “kiss my ass.” It seems that Romney refuses to answer any questions from reporters, other than the ones at Fox News, which isn’t saying much, as they will ask him the softball questions, nothing to hard, cause that teax Mitt’s brain, and spew out even more gaffes.

Now that Mitt Romney is in London, he has made so many gaffes, that it isn’t even funny. One of them was, that he told reporters, that he met with the leader of MI6 which is like the CIA. In Britain that’s a no-no. It’s supposed to be kept quiet.
Mitt is a walking-talking disaster.
Read the commentary in Buzzflash.
Mitt Romney got caught telling another lie (which is nothing new), saying the Australia foreign minister said that the US was in decline, but it that wasn’t what he said. Of course its another one of Romney’s lies on putting the country’s blame on Obama.

What made Bill Clinton make a statement, calling for the Bush era tax cuts be extended. Of course the orange coated John Boehner was all giddy, along with the other GOPers. Now the Obama White House is quite pissed about it, and I don’t blame them one bit, as Obama has been wanting the rich to pay more taxes.
Has Mitt Romney finally hit rock bottom, for not saying anything what Ted Nugent said about Obama, and the fact that Romney accepted Nugent’s endorsement. We all know that Nugent is the lowest of the low, and also dangerous person.
A good read by William Rivers Pitt, in Truthout, about all the shit the Republicans did this week, with the Darrell Issa hearings.
According to a poll in nbcsports, Tim Tebow is the favorite among Republicans to run for President. But thing is he has to be 35 years old to run. Read more….
Karl Rove is at already at it, when he and his billionaire friends put TV attack ads, concerning Elizabeth Warren. What kind of dirt and lies can Rove come up with, when she’s an honest and very smart woman.
A Karl Rove-backed group has made the first major ad buy in the Massachusetts Senate contest between Democratic challenger Elizabeth Warren and Republican incumbent Scott Brown, according to state Democratic sources. Few details are available on the buy, and Rove didn’t immediately respond to a request for comment. The ad, said the sources, is an attack on Warren. Read more…
The voters in Maine told the Republicans that they wanted to keep same day voter registration, that has been a law since 1973. The Republican led legislature passed a law earlier this year, that all new voters, could only register two days before the election(s).
Maine voters have repealed a law requiring voters to enroll at least two days before an election, restoring a four-decade policy of allowing registrations as late as Election Day.
With 30 percent of Maine’s precincts reporting, the proposal to repeal the newly enacted two-day requirement was passed with 59 percent of the vote. Read more…
Harvard Professor Elizabeth Warren, was a registered Republican, but changed to the Democratic Party.
Harvard Law Professor Elizabeth Warren, who is running for the U.S. Senate in Massachusetts as a Democrat, revealed that she was a Republican until the 1980s, and she came out in strong support of the Occupy Wall Street protests in an interview The Daily Beast published Tuesday. Read more here…
Sarah Palin said today, that she will not run in the 2012 run for the presidency. She made the announcement on the Mark Levin’s radio show.
This is real earth shattering news.
Hopefully we won’t have to watch and listen to this imbecile anymore.
Meghyn Kelly of Fox News, defends the people in the audience that booed at last week’s Republican dedate. This is typical Fox News anchor style bullshit at its finest/worst. Take your pick.
Fox News anchor Meghyn Kelly defended members of last Thursday’s GOP debate audience who booed after watching a video of a gay soldier asking about the don’t ask don’t tell law.
The moment drew widespread attention, and on Tuesday, Vice President Joe Biden called the booing “reprehensible” during an appearance on “The View.”
It didn’t take long for the right to start the Elizabeth Warren Bashing.
In just a matter of hours after Elizabeth Warren Announced that she is running for the Senate in Massachusetts, in 2012. In a Boston Herald column, the writer says:
Who are they to vote for in next year’s Democratic Senate Primary? A woman or a black man? Who wins the victimology sweepstakes this cycle?
He went on to bash gays, Rachel Maddow and (weirdly) nannies.
What the hell has gone wrong, with the way people think? It was damn sickening to read, watch and hear the people in the audience at the Tea Party Republican Debate in Tampa. When CNN’s Wolf Blitzer asked Ron Paul the question; a person in the hospital that has no insurance, do you just let him die, and the nutty asshole Tea Baggers clapped and thought it was funny.
The same thing last week in Simi Valley, when Brian Williams pointed out that 234 people under Perry’s watch, have been executed including an innocent man in Texas, which leads the nation on the death penalty scorecard, again, the audience clapped, like it was a big joke.
Why isn’t the media calling out on these Bozos for the way they are acting. I’m sure if it was an all Democratic audience, and they clapped and hooted at their candidates, Fox News and Limbaugh would be all over it.
Politics was always dirty, but never this dirty.
I caught the last 20 minutes of Obama’s jobs speech, and from what I saw and gathered, he’s had enough of Congress’s bullshit. Now if the thick-headed Tea Party led Republicans got that heads out of the sand, and realize that the obstructions that they believe in come to a complete stop, and start doing the job they were elected to do, is to work for the people who put them in office, and not do the work for the big corporations, the banks and their millionaire & billionaire friends.
Watching John Boehner, it looked like he didn’t know whether to cry or shit is pants, or both. Whenever he applauded, it was half heartedley, like he it was a big bother to do it.
Perry calls himself a Christian?

John Boehner has no respect for the president, after the ‘tan man’ got his in forcing the president to give his speech the next night. This has never happened before, where Congress refused to let the president speak before both the House and the Senate. The Republicans don’t give a damn about the middle class and the poor.
The video of Ed Schultz can be seen via the link below.
Watch Rep. Chris Gibson R-NY called out at town hall meeting, and avoids answering the questions. Looks like he says what Grover Norquist and the Koch Bros. tell him to say.
