tidbits from the grey matter …

they say it’s good to get this shit out …
and seeing as November is just around the corner, some shit ya’ just may wanna ponder …
On Republicans and their ‘talking points’ – Life inside the bubble …
tidbitz by hip is everything
1. The GOP are the party of and for fiscal responsibility …
which hasn’t been true since Dwight D. Eisenhower … He was the last Republican president to actually balance the budget – in the 1950′s … and as long as they aren’t in the mood for a couple of un-paid for wars, tax breaks for billionaires, tax breaks for big oil and coal, or big pharma, or corporations (‘cos theys peeps too ya’ know), or pretty much anyone with enough money to fund one of these prick’s election campaigns …
2. They’re pro-life … as long as you’re talking about a fetus … After that, you’re on yer’ own pal, so grab yer’ bootstraps and start a pullin’ … Otherwise, they cut programs that help the poor, cut education, fight safety and environmental regulations at every opportunity, oppose universal health care (so people can maybe live a little longer), (pills for women – BAD, pills for woodies – essential medicine) … cut off benefits to veterans and 911 First Responders, and get big ole’ Cialis induced hard-ons bragging about the number of executions their particular state performs each year …
Oh, and they love guns. You know, the tools largely responsible for around 10,000 homicides in the country each and every year (the one thing that America definitely is number one in … year after year, and getting worse … “USA, USA, USA!!!) …
Oh and it’s always ‘instant chubbies’ all around if there’s a war to be had …
3. They’re for small government – “Big government is BAD!” … until it comes time to restrict ‘The Gays’ from having equal rights, or blocking a woman’s constitutionally protected right to have an abortion, or letting minorities of any kind vote, or keeping out the immigrants and ‘illegals’, or enforcing unnecessary voter suppression laws, or fattening up the military industrial complex’s bank accounts …
then yuppirs bucko, they love them some big government.
4. The support the troops … by sending over 4,000 of them to die in a war based on blatant lies and hubris (and let’s not forget oil and profits) …  And by blocking veterans bills for the ones who do manage to make it home alive … And by cutting off funding to the families that those same troops leave back at home need to survive, while they fight and die for the personal profits of some rich, white, fat, aging billionaire back home … or blocking any progress in fixing or funding properly the Veterans Administration Agency …
5. They’re for Constitutional rights … until someone with which they disagree is given rights they don’t think they should have, then they can’t stand the Constitution … I don’t actually believe for a split second that any one of these douchebags has even read the Constitution …
6. They stand for religious freedom … for Christians … and ONLY certain types of Christians at that …  More specifically, conservative Evangelical Christians …  Because if you’re a liberal church that wants to marry a gay couple in a state which currently still has a ban in place on gay marriage, then suddenly conservatives don’t care at all about that church’s “religious freedom.” (this one also constantly proves my theory that none of them have actually read the constitution, instead like that other manuscript that they love to wave around so much, the Bible, they tend to just cherry pick the parts that serve their purpose at the time) …
7. The Second Amendment says our right to bear arms shall not be in any way  infringed … always ignoring the entire first part of the Second Amendment that refers to “a well regulated militia” …
8. Abraham Lincoln was a Republican … yup, true dat … but let’s get out the history books here and maybe even look at some facts (a scary concept for this herd) … Pretty much every state that fought with the Confederacy also opposed a woman’s right to vote, desegregation and the Civil Rights act.  Those states are to this day almost all “strongly Republican” states, and many are STILL pushing for these same bigoted ideals … Racism and discrimination that’s spanned nearly 200 years and passed on through several generations is still so prevalent that it has become the ‘policy du jour’ in many of these states …
Did these guys conveniently forget about the Southern Strategy? …
Or all the voter suppression actions the last few years? …
9. You can’t trust the “lame-stream” media … said by the very same factually bereft, science denying’, low information sheep who worship Fox News, ‘the most watched cable news channel on television’ … being the “most watched” pretty much defines what it means to be “mainstream” guys … so …. just sayin’ …
10. The government is corrupt and inefficient … said by the very same people who continue to elect politicians who run on the premise that the government is corrupt and inefficient, and once elected do their best to see that it is. (see: Boehner Congress; McConnell Senate; Do Nothing Congress; gridlock; filibuster; Ted Cruz, et al) …
11. Guns don’t kill people, people kill people … yes they do, and they tend to kill one another far more often when guns are easily accessible within a society … plus, unless you put said gun in the hands of said ‘people’ no-one gets hurt in the making of this lie …
sooo… it stands to reason that if maybe, just maybe, we take those same guns out of the hands of those same people, less people will get killed …??? … ya’ think? …sorta like every other civilized democracy in the world does (who pretty much all have a much lower rate of deaths by gun) … just sayin’ … it’s just plain physics/math kids … oh yeah, I forgot, you guys don’t believe in science, or math, or facts …
12. The only way to stop a bad guy with a gun, is a good guy with a gun … I’m pretty fucking sure that the victims that the “bad guy with a gun” killed or injured before the “good guy with a gun” showed up and shot him feel differently …
13. This nation was founded on Christianity … then why aren’t the words “Christian” or “Christianity” written in the Constitution even once? … hmmm, odd eh? …
14. There is no such thing as ‘global warming’ or ‘climate change’ … fuck me Mabel, I’m not even doing this one … like gramps used to say, “You can’t teach a duck to play guitar, they don’t have the smarts, and it just pisses ‘em off – waste of everyone’s time” …
15. Evolution is a lie! … again, follow above advice from Gramps …
16. The whole “Job Creators” line of bullshit … see: the real job creators

pop the gop bubble by hip is everything

One thought on “tidbits from the grey matter …

  1. Speaking of “good guys with a gun”, there was that shooting in Las Vegas, where two Tea Partiers, supposedly good guys, killed two cops, again supposedly good guys, and a concealed gun owner who tried to stoo the killers, so yet another “good guy”.
