All My Rowdy Friends

Tom DeLay is still not in jail.

Jack Abramoff went to jail.  Tony Rudy went to jail.  Michael Scanlan went to jail.  And yesterday, DeLay’s aide, Jim Ellis plead guilty, even though DeLay still claims they are all innocent as the driven snow.

How come everybody in that whole crowd has either gone to jail or plead guilty and Tom DeLay is still clutching his Bible to his chest and claiming it was all Nancy Pelosi’s fault?

Don’t answer.  I already know the answer.  He’s a festering piece of hypocritical slime who, like all conservatives, thinks the law is for everybody else.

He needs to go jail.  He does.  State jail.  Where they don’t have air conditioning.  He needs to get used to the heat because eternity is long damn time.

Barbeque Texas Style

June 29, 2012 By: Juanita Jean Herownself Category: Uncategorized

This morning there was a major traffic accident on I 35 just south of New Braunfels, Texas. A tractor trailer had a blow out, veered off the road, but the driver got out safely right before he won the Texas Barbeque King title ….

The tractor portion of the rig was completely destroyed along with at least the front half of the trailer. The trailer was reportedly loaded with frozen pork fat – that liquefied under all the heat.

The goal was to get at least one lane open by 10 a.m. but that has now been pushed back to as late as noon.

A Schertz spokesman said the debris is pretty intense, extending up several hundreds yards and up the exit ramp. Oil cleanup is a big part of that job.

Pork fat is considered one of the major food groups in Texas.  If you step outside in Houston, you can smell the sweet aroma of this mishap.

Ya Think Maybe You’re Paying the Wrong Preacher?

Thanks to Kary for this one —

Ya know, as little as the Lord has been listening to these people, you’d think they’d get a new god or something.  And, I dunno about that laying prostrate thing; that looks kinda foreign to me.  And they brought bottled water?  Is that in case lightning strikes your butt?

Thanks to Kary for the heads-up.

Your Guess Is As Good As Mine

When I first read this blog entry, I thought it was satire.

I’m real, real, terribly afraid it’s not.  It’s a rightwinger explaining how the Supreme Court decision is the most evil thing to ever happen on the planet earth and how Obama engineered it.

Someone got to Roberts.  I bet they got to him and told him he has to vote this way or members of his family – kids, wife, parents, whoever – were going to be killed.

Later this afternoon, it’s going to come out that Roberts was coerced.  A Secret Service agent overheard Obama and Axelrod discussing the Roberts blackmail.  He managed to get them on tape discussing it.  Later this afternoon, the whole story will come out, Roberts will issue his REAL opinion, and Obama and Axelrod will be taken away in handcuffs.

When my son is my age, will he be able to call the doctor and go see him?

How can I protect myself from the government?  Isn’t there some way I can hide from them?

This blogger goes by the name Harry, which rhymes with Scary.  I admit that it scares me that this man is allowed to drive a car, but it is totally unacceptable that he is allowed to have children.

Republicans:  where the sanity ends but the fun begins.

Louie Gohmert: That human events thing.

And then there’s everybody’s favorite Congresscritter – Louie Gohmert, who got downright frothy-mouthed yesterday and let his tongue get ahead of his brain until everything stopped and there was a charming crash of epic proportions. Reacting to the Supreme Court’s decision on the Affordable Care Act, he began …

“When in the course of human events it becomes clear that you have people who will not follow the law, it’s time to use orderly methods set forth in the Constitution to remove them from their offices, and get people who will abide by their oaths,” Gohmert said.

When in the course of human events?  Damn, Louie has been listening to his revolutionary tapes again.

And then Preacher Gohmert got to rolling on the River Jordan.

Addressing the crowd, Gohmert called on God to ”work with those who are so ignorant that they continue to support and love the liars that misrepresented things to get this bill passed.”

Oh crap, wait until Louie finds out about Harry’s information.

Thanks to David and Ralph for the heads up.

And a Special Eric Holder Salute!


Listen Up! This is Important.

I’d pondered on something today, but I didn’t want to say anything about it until I checked with a  real writ twit.   You know, like Bubba.  I am not a lawyer and I am not even allowed to play one within the confines of my own home.  However, in an odd twist of fate, physics, and really great shiny sandals, I was right about my ponders.

Brothers and Sisters, if we allow the harpies on the rightwing to frame the Affordable Care Act as a “tax,” then shame on us.  Shame, shame on us.

The Supreme Court most certainly did NOT call it a tax.  They called it a penalty, which America is  allowed to levy under our taxing authority.  They never, even once, called it tax.  It is only a tax in the same way that a speeding ticket is a tax.  Or a fine for a DUI is a tax.  Or restitution to poor widow ladies who you cheat out of their savings is a tax.

It is a penalty for not accepting personal responsibility and expecting the rest of us to pay for your health care.   It is a penalty for not caring about your fellow Americans who have pre-exisiting conditions.  It is a penalty for not acting like the Christian you call yourself.  It is a penalty for not giving a hoot when seniors fall into the donut hole and can’t pay for their medicine. It is a penalty for not loving America and Americans.

It only affects about 1 – 2% of all Americans.  Hell, the ebola virus is more prevalent than that.

Do NOT let them call it a tax.  Nobody but Fox News thinks it’s a tax, but it is spreading to other networks tonight.

Stop it!
