Harshing your mellow since 9/01

Bill of particulars

If you ain’t pissed off, you ain’t paying attention.

Every Republican candidate’s stock speech sounds the same, the thunderous roar about a government out of control, federal spending out of control (insert charts and graphs and why, if you stack hundred dollar bills, they will reach the edge of the universe), federal taxes out of control (insert comparisons to socialist countries), the federal bureaucracy out of control (insert metaphors about chains, yokes, and the like), the family shattered with federal funding of abortion a crime against humanity (watch for it — there! The heart-wrenching sob), and our military is emasculated.

Two more items were added to the menu, courtesy of Obama. Obamacare Will Be Repealed! and Illegal Immigration Will Not Stand!

In 2009, the Democrats controlled everything, partly due to the Republicans’ cowardice on Capitol Hill, and in part because of some of the most inept candidates and campaigns America has seen in years. The Obama folks could have played it safe but went for socialist gold, using the power of the legislative and the executive branches (and later the judiciary, thank you Justice Roberts) to advance their agenda.

That included federal spending on a level unmatched in human history resulting ultimately in a $19 trillion in debt we simply cannot pay, and with so many tens of trillions of dollars in unfunded liabilities that “infinity” is not far behind. One seventh of the economy was confiscated by the federal government with the passage of Obamacare. Our national borders were declared open and discussions over our national sovereignty closed. And to top it off, the Democrats all but declared themselves above the law.

The GOP harrumphed that this would not stand, by God! If only…if only America would vote them into the majority.

And we all know what THAT got us.

Bozell goes on to recite a litany of betrayal, collusion, and deceit that of right ought to shame even the most brazen professional politician…but, somehow, doesn’t. This would have to be my favorite line of the piece:

There is no difference between Republicans and Democrats. Put them together. They are the swamp.

Which would explain why they’re all so damnably resistant to draining it, of course. As I’ve said so many times: no, we don’t need a third party. What we DO need is a second party, to stand in true opposition to the Government Party, the Beltway Bandit Party, the Business As Usual Party.

  1. Hear, hear. I left the GOP over Trump, but he was really just the last straw. As much as I loathe Donnie Douchebag, he’s undeniably given his party a stunning opportunity to get shit done. But he’s too busy stepping on his dick, and they’re too busy jerking theirs.

  2. If voting really worked, shouldn’t we be in a utopia of unfettered personal liberty by now?

  3. He’s behind the curve. We’ve been saying that the GOP was bent on committing suicide since around Super Tuesday of 2016.

  4. Very well said, Ironbear. Politically incorrect, of course. But nonetheless very well said.

  5. Credit where it’s due: : Gorsuch was outta the park, and I like the Mattis, Sessions, Perry, Devos, & Pruitt appointments. I’ve been pleased to see him do what Preezy cravenly refused to: call out the Islamovermin as the abject evil they are; which makes his milquetoast platitudes after Charlottesville so baffling (but maybe not, with Steve “I Am The Alt Right Platform” Bannon’s tongue pushing in towards the presidential colon). The executive orders are fine, I guess, until the next Dem POTUS nukes them all with the stroke of a pen. God forbid he mobilize his Congressional majority to get any of it done legislatively, which would make those initiatives all but invulnerable to future EOs. Checkers v. Chess.

    Contempt where it’s earned: He’s an establishment big government whore who’s been in bed with the worst of the parasites forever, and shoveled boatloads of money into the campaign coffers of everyone from Hillary to Schumer to Wiener. His supporters rationalize that kind of malfeasance as someone just playing the game. A better assessment is that he has no real principles beyond personal gain & his own self aggrandizement. Principles and character matter and he has little of either. He’s a punk, a liar, and bully – unless you buy into to his ‘Raphael Cruz as JFK conspirator’ jive, and have you noticed how what’s-her-name bleeds from her whatever? And then there’s his affection for eminent domain, along with his reversal of Preezy’s restrictions on civil asset forfeiture – a repellent exercise in jackbooted totalitarianism.

    But what do I know? Grab ’em by the hoo hah, America!
