Naming Names

September 09, 2017 By: Juanita Jean Herownself Category: Uncategorized

Four Texas Republicans voted against Hurricane Harvey aid for Texas.

I’m fixing to name them right now: Twit, Jerk, Idiot, and Damn Crook.

If you want their birth names, you have to trust someone else because they are all dead to me.

Four Texas Republicans opposed the package: Reps. Joe Barton, Jeb Hensarling, Sam Johnson and Mac Thornberry. But none of them represent counties deemed disaster areas by the Federal Emergency Management Agency.

Yeah, they live in the Dallas area.

Louie Gohmert and Blake Farenthold both voted for it because their districts were impacted by Harvey.

So, the “government should only get involved if it benefits me personally” continues to be the Texas Republican mantra.

  1. Yes, I’ve always thought that about Republicans. For example, Dick Cheney was good on gay rights….because his daughter is a lesbian. He was horrible on everything else. As a group, Repubs seem incapable of empathy for people with problems they themselves can’t imagine having.

  2. The current crop of snacilbupeR remind me of a slinky: not good for any particular thing, but fun to watch tumble down the stairs.

  3. Not to worry too much. The environment or human nature will create ample future opportunities for those not yet asking for help to do, with hat in hand and extended palms.

    What is so interesting about Republicans is their utter and total ability to believe that bad things wil never, ever happen to them. And will only happen to those ‘others’ who probably, in some way, deserved it.

  4. What a bunch of hypocrites! Bet they will yell, scream, and jump around in a tantrum mode if they need anything. How do they justify tell fellow Texans to go to hell? Guess their “good Christian” consciousness wasn’t sufficiently upset by the horrible devastation wrought by Hurricane Harvey. And of course they remained high and dry so they could watch the horrors from the considerable comfort of their homes. Well, boys, what goes around comes around and Lady Karma & her BFF Nemesis can be real bitches. You just wait.

  5. brave men standing on their principles regarding the debt limit -snark-

  6. Old Quaker (Colorado) says:

    Excellent names for goopers. I’ll begin with my congressjerk, Mike Coffman; he’s the guy holding his finger up in the wind. Ditto our jr senator who flip flops like a fish in the bottom of the boat.

  7. I’m sure if we heard their reasons to vote against hurricane assistance most of us would say, “oh, given their explanation, I think they’re even bigger idiots.”

  8. Frequent GOP (& Libertarian) motto: “Screw you, Jack, I got mine.”

    “I don’t know how to explain to someone that they should care about other people”:

  9. “Twit, Jerk, Idiot, and Damn Crook.” JuanitaJeanHerownself is that the snacilbupeR sequel to Darryl, Darryl, and Darryl with a fourth added?

  10. Old Quaker (Colorado), to replicate the stench of Teddie Crooze said fish would need to have been laying in the bottom of the boat, in the hot sun, and for weeks. As for Cory and Mike, does anyone take them seriously?

  11. The rePUKEians can’t push for separation from USA as they are in deep need for federal welfare aid!! Thanks Harvey!

  12. JAKvirginia says:

    They live in the Dallas area? So this is, what, screw liberal Houston? Wow… seems like these 4 idjits are not for ALL Texans. Something to remember in the future, huh, Texas?

  13. Just this week Hensarling was on the teevee yammering about how the rescission of one program to help people would actually give them freedom. Fortunately the reporter involved in this interview took him on and he looked like a damn fool. This is the la-la land fantasy crap they spill on everyone else and think it means they have a program for governing. They can’t tell the difference between an agenda and a program, or sanity versus insanity. Hensarling, Karma has something really delicious in her bag of tricks just for you!

  14. So the next tornado that hits North Texas shouldn’t require helping anyone’?

  15. Rick Stelter says:

    The cure for this nonsense is to make the districts whose representatives that vote against disaster relief ineligible for disaster relief as long as that rep is in office.

  16. I’m stunned.

    I wonder how close the damage would need to be to their district to promote a sense of compassion?
