Louie Watch: Don’t Look

March 31, 2014 By: Juanita Jean Herownself Category: Uncategorized

East Texas’ own Congressvarmint Louie Gohmert is just a circus looking for a big top.

Here’s his latest.

Louie thinks that because corporations can be charged with crimes, they should also be able to have a religion.  And, apparently, children, feelings, a fast car, and dinner at 6:00.

Louie was on the electric radio with rightwing nut Tony Perkins.

“Well, Tony, if you can as a corporation through your directors and officers, form the intent to commit a crime, then you can certainly, through your officers and directors form an intent to have religious beliefs.”

And Louie does not care what religion that might be, just so long it’s white people religion.

“And if every one of your directors and officers has the same exact religious beliefs, whether your Amish and have formed a corporation or any other religious group — Quakers or whatever the group is — certainly a corporation can, if they can have intent as the Justice Department repeatedly proves in court, then they can certainly have religious beliefs.”

Amish and Quakers?  Seriously, Louie?  Do you know diddle squat about Amish, Louie?  No, you do not.

I guess he thinks Quaker Oats is a religious company.  Yeah, that’s some religious oatmeal corporation.

(John made this a week ago and I have been patiently sitting on it, knowing that it won’t be long until Louie gives me a reason to put it on the website.)



Thanks to Brian for the heads up.  And, of course, to John.

Because Republican Women Bring Home the Bacon and Then Like To Eat It Raw

There’s something awfully weird about Republican women.

From the Washington Post —

So, here’s the deal.  Republican women would rather be paid less than men for the same job just so long they get to watch people go without healthcare.

I think they are serious about this.

Republican Shelley Moore Capito, who is running for Senate in West Virginia, even goes one step further —

Coal Burnin' Capito

Coal Burnin’ Capito

Chuck Flannery, Capito’s political director, said the West Virginia congresswoman has been long supportive of women’s issues, and her campaign in the Senate carries on the same tradition. Capito has pointed to Obamacare as particularly harmful to women in West Virginia as well as environmental restrictions on coal.

She’s for you not having health care and getting lung cancer. And she’s willing to be paid less to do it!  Helluva plan, ma’am.

Obamacare makes health care more gender neutral.  However, Republican women aren’t all that big on equality.

Here’s what I think.  Any female elected official who opposes a gender neutral health care plan for America and equal pay for women should give up their health care and take a 30% pay cut.

And Capito should have to spend a month working in a coal mine.  But only because she makes my skin crawl.

Hell, I’ll Buy The Ticket

Honey, there’s times when I’ll pay a buck to see a show.

Movie star (I can’t bring myself to say actor) Steven Seagal, who joined with Sheriff Joe Arpaio at the Birther Ball, has now decided that rightwing politics are more at home in Russia.

Action movie star Steven Seagal said in an interview with the Moscow Times that he is in favor of Russia’s military action in Crimea and that he may someday emigrate to the former Soviet Union.

According to Atlantic magazine’s The Wire blog, Seagal called Putin “one of the great world leaders” and said he “would like to consider him as a brother.”

Seriously, I’ll buy the one way ticket.  Does he want to take Sheriff Joe with him?

Seagal says that he “might” apply for Russian citizenship.

I was listening for his fellow right-wingers to denounce him.  You wanna know what I hear?  Crickets.

Can You Even Imagine?

I can imagine a lot of awful stuff but this is the stuff that makes nightmares:  Kissing Shelton Adelson’s butt.

In discussing the Middle East, Christie referred to “occupied territories,” which Adelson sees as a slam to Israel.

Screen Shot 2014-03-31 at 8.55.01 AMNew Jersey Gov. Chris Christie apologized to Sheldon Adelson in a meeting Saturday for stepping on a fault line in Middle East politics during a speech he gave earlier in the day, according to a source familiar with the conversation.

Christie met with Adelson privately in the casino mogul’s office in the Venetian hotel and casino … 

Poor Chris, whose luck is running so bad right now that he couldn’t win a bet on a baseball game even if he had tomorrow’s newspaper, must have thought he could win the Presidency on one vote – Sheldon Adelson’s.  Hell, it didn’t work for Newt Gingrich, then it didn’t work for Romney.

If Christie had a lick of sense, he’d pay Adelson to support Rick Perry.

Thanks to David for the heads up.


It’s a Holy Day at the Beauty Salon

I’ve got the Astros until they lose every damn game and then I’ll still find an excuse to go to the park.

Little known fact:  God does not subtract from your allotted time on earth any time spent at the ballpark.

Who ya rootin’ for?  And, yeah, Fenway Fran, we know we know we know.

NOBODY in Texas Wants Obamacare – Updated

March 30, 2014 By: Juanita Jean Herownself Category: Uncategorized

Update:  Well, lookie here.

Sen. John Barrasso (R-WY), the No. 4 Republican in the Senate, on Sunday accused the Obama administration of inflating the statistics on health care sign-ups through the exchanges established under Obamacare.

And President Obama made people to stand in those lines.
