OK Oklahoma

September 30, 2017 By: Juanita Jean Herownself Category: Uncategorized

Republicans in Oklahoma are some randy sumbitches.

I know there ain’t much to do and even less to look at in Oklahoma.  I know that for a damn fact.

But, fer goodness sake, boys.

Oklahoma Republicans have been rocked by a series of sex-related scandals this year. Former state Sen. Bryce Marlatt resigned earlier this month after an Uber driver told police he grabbed her head and kissed her neck while she drove him to a bar in June. State Rep. Dan Kirby resigned in February after being accused of sexually harassing two former legislative assistants, and ex-state Sen. Ralph Shortey was indicted in federal court this month on charges of child sex trafficking and producing and transporting child.

And a former aide to Republican Gov. Mary Fallin was charged this month after authorities say he was investigated on allegations that he took a photo or video up a woman’s skirt at the State Capitol. Travis Goss Brauer faces charges of offering false or fraudulent evidence, a felony, and a misdemeanor charge of destruction of evidence after authorities allege he destroyed or altered a mobile phone and a laptop that were part of an investigation.

Well hell, let’s make it an even half dozen.

Republican Jason Reese is running for a state house seat in Oklahoma, so I’m thinking maybe he wanted to fit in.  He’s formerly a lawyer for the Oklahoma Republican Party.

His campaign expenditure report includes a purchase of a porn video.  Yep, just your standard bondage video entitled “Hot Wife Chloe Needs To Be Punished.”  And, Honey, Chloe ain’t the only one.


Well, Jason says he hired a CPA to file his campaign reports and the CPA accidentally cut and pasted this movie title into the report.  Amazingly, a couple of people believe that story.

Reese has a website for his campaign where he calls himself “Reformer Realist Republican.” I guess he could add Reprobate.


“Downright Moron”

“As democracy is perfected, the office of president represents, more and more closely, the inner soul of the people. On some great and glorious day the plain folks of the land will reach their heart’s desire at last and the White House will be adorned by a downright moron.” — H. L. Mencken

Yes, it’s true, newspaperman H.L. Mencken wrote these words that were published by the Baltimore Evening Sun on 26 July 1920.  The words were written 97 years ago, coming true in 2017.

And a word from Steve Schmidt, John McCain’s former campaign manager …


Whadda guy.

And the United States general in charge of the relief effort in Puerto Rico says there’s not enough troops and equipment there.


Tax “Reform” – Here We Go Again

September 30, 2017 By: El Jefe Category: Congress, Sumbitches

Bruce Bartlett, Reagan’s domestic policy advisor wrote a great piece in the Washington Post yesterday which ripped away the veil from Republican tax mythology.  That mythology has been peddled to Americans since Reagan and is dependent on successfully peddling the lie that taking in less money results in revenue going up.  The tax cutting myth is a myth because it’s a lie and has always been a lie.

Low taxes became an article of faith among Republicans started by Ronald Reagan who preached tax cuts as the cure-all for the nation’s ills.  Repubs have never seen a tax cut they didn’t like and live in a world where 2-1=3.  Reagan’s tax cuts probably dampened the recovery after the years of stagflation, the recovery from which was more affected by interest rate reductions made by the Fed.

GWB was also propelled to the WH in 2000 on a tax cutting platform, and his two tax cuts accelerated the downturn of 2007 into the Great Recession that brought our economy to it’s knees.

Once again, the Repubs, now in control of Congress and the WH, have come back to the tax cut trough, peddling their same BS of how cutting taxes makes revenue to up.  They’re also patently dishonest about taxes themselves, continuously lying that the US has the highest taxes in the developed world.  They always point to statutory tax rates which bear no actual resemblance tor effective tax rates actually paid.

Bartlett makes the point that taxes don’t drive business investment.  Tax cuts don’t make revenue go up; they drive revenues down.  It’s simple.  It’s math.  Which Republicans don’t understand.

Price resigns.  If there’s a position opening for an arrogant, entitled, self-centered jerk who is always on the take, he can start on Monday.  Send salary and perks to
