Since 2008 – Progress Through Politics

GOT-muthaeffin-V! An Open Thread!

Ladies and Gentlemen, allow me to present six minutes and eleven seconds of pure, solid gold ‘awesome’:

It’s funny ’cause it’s true! It’s also scary, because as you well know, there are Teahadist candidates all over the damned map in the election to be held just four short days from now, and they are salivating at the possibility of political power. Here’s the deal: I don’t give an ounce of shit how disappointed you are with the President, this or that Democrat, this policy or the other, or anything else. These knuckleheads need to be stopped.  Blunted.  Averted. After everything else, it really is that simple.

Allowing more Tea Party politicians to drag their knuckles up and down the halls of congress (and across the threshold of a few Statehouses) is libel run us all a hefty tab. That’s an account this Nation can’t really afford to settle. How about ya’ll? You doing anything to help GOTV?  Canvassing?  Phonebanking?  Volunteering?  Let’s hear it. Come on, you know you want to do something.  So go on, do as much as you can.

         After teaching both college and high school for 31 years I cannot believe that his crop of tea party crazies made it to a ballot.  I remember when people this out of step with reality were either committed or simply dismissed as “nuts”.  The fact that these people are allowed to be on an election ballot SCARES ME!!!!!  I taught government, civics and the constitution my entire career.  I had 100% voter registration in my government classes.  I didn’t care how they voted, I just wanted them all to vote.  If they produced their ballot stubs I gave them extra credit.

        Now I’m concerned that someone like angle,in Nevada, will be elected.  Am I allowed to express my dissatisfaction with her by using my second amendment rights?  I am so glad that I am my age, with a life-shortening disease, because I cannot bear to see this great Nation go the way it appears it might.  Throw in the wing-nuts like issa, a congressman in calif., and we may not even have a functioning government at all.  Who voted these people into office????  It may not solve the problem but my wife and I have discussed moving to another country.  Posted by Historyfog, the father of fog iv

    Wife just took the older two to school.  She’s coming back for the baby and heading off to the polls herself.
