As I Bang My Head On My Desk…

by Vince

Thank you, again and again, teabagger Christine O’Donnell:

Christine O’Donnell on Tuesday compared the “tragedy” of extending unemployment benefits to Pearl Harbor and the death of Elizabeth Edwards.

“Today marks a lot of tragedy,” O’Donnell, who lost her recent bid for a Delaware Senate seat despite strong backing from the Tea Party, said Tuesday night during an appearance in Virginia.

“Tragedy comes in threes,” O’Donnell said. “Pearl Harbor, Elizabeth Edwards’s passing and Barack Obama’s announcement of extending the tax cuts, which is good, but also extending the unemployment benefits.”

What the fuck is wrong with these privileged whites and their tax cuts for the uber rich? Let me break the three down into simple terms since O’Donnell has done a beautiful job pinning three events together that need explanation:

1. Bombing of Pearl Harbor: killed 2,400 American’s.

2. The death of Elizabeth Edwards: died from breast cancer and stood by her ex-husband John’s side after numerous extramarital affairs.

3. Tax cuts for the rich for only more years but an extension of unemployment benefits for 36 more months: only grants two more years, at minimum most likely, to the 2% of filthy stinking rich Americans (PS – Warren Buffet said he doesn’t need the tax cut) but ensures 36 more months of ~$300 a week for unemployed Americans (5 applicants are out there for every 1 job).

And this is who was a serious candidate for senator of Delaware? My God, please step away from politics you Christianist moron.

Compromise and the Tax Cut Deal

by Vince

Here are a ton of reactions to the Obama tax cut deal as well as takes on it from the Republican side.

Thank you Obama for compromising on this issue and establishing a bipartisan solution. You have shown that you are man enough to put through this deal, bend backwards a bit with extending tax cuts to millionaires and billionaires, and see it as a work in progress in that requires both sides to be included. He didn’t choose to be a bitter sissy who didn’t get his way and waste the other 300 million American’s time and money as he regained his composure. Amazingly, the nihilist party of “no” made this deal happen when they could of waited a bit longer until their new Congress came in with a House majority.

On another note, I really don’t know how a normal middle class family or individual could honestly vote for these Republican fucks. They pander to the millionaires and billionaires and will only grant a permanent tax cut for the middle class if the upper class gets one first. Let’s keep in mind that permanent tax cuts for both classes are completely unrealistic and unsustainable.

‘A Christian Nation’

by Vince

Rep. Michelle Bachmann represents the laughable Congressional Prayer Caucus. What her job entails I do not know. Amongst her daily doings, she is great at making off color comments. Check out this beaut:

The caucus wrote that Obama used e pluribus unum (“out of many, one,” in Latin) as the motto of the United States instead of “In God We Trust.” While e pluribus unum is part of the nation’s seal and has been an unofficial motto since the country’s founding, the group was upset he didn’t use “In God we Trust” in its place.

“By making these kinds of statements to the rest of the world, you are removing on the the cornerstones of our secure freedom,” the caucus wrote. “If we pull the thread of religious conviction out of the marketplace of ideas, we unravel the tapestry of freedom that birthed America.”

Last time I checked, you idiot, we weren’t a Christian nation but had a separation of church and state. Simply saying that we are a Christian nation and therefore holding God as the church of choice, we would be favoring one church over the others and therefore would be trampling on the church and state separation. The Americans United for the Separation of Church and State responded to this unChristian letter:

“The Prayer Caucus should just admit that it is looking for any opportunity to bash the president,” the Rev. Barry W. Lynn, executive director of Americans United, said in a statement on Monday. “It’s not very Christian of them, but I expect nothing less from a body that takes its marching orders from the Religious Right.”

Added Lynn, “This is one of the silliest manufactured controversies I’ve ever seen, and I would advise the president to deal with it by tossing the caucus’ letter into the nearest wastebasket.”
