The Liars’ Club

Hey kids,

The problem with one party debates is that they pander to the crowds that sponsor them.  That was clearly the case with the republican debate on 9/12/11 that was sponsored by that cult known as the tea baggers.  Now, who the hell would watch this thing to begin with I have no idea.  It was up against the season premiere of Monday Night Football which was just plain idiotic on the planning of the tea baggers, but then again when have they done anything remotely intelligent.  So it’s safe to assume that I did not watch this debate, however, it’s also safe to assume I read about it in the paper this morning and watched the lowlights on CNN this morning.

Before I get too far into this meeting of The Liars Club, I have to ask this question:  when did intelligence and education become a bad thing?  They embraced an idiot (Sarah “Pig” Palin) as their leader and talked about how another clueless idiot (Bush) was a great president.  To say they are misguided would be a major understatement.  They wanted to have “someone like them” to lead them.  I’m sorry, but I do not want stupid people in charge of my country.  I want a well educated and articulate person and not a C student or someone who hopped around from college to college to find the best parties.

In addition, the tea baggers began their bowel movement almost immediately after President Obama took office.  They gave him no time whatsoever to implement or do anything.  They spread lies and complained about him from the start.  To me, this sounds disturbingly like racism.  Okay, who am I kidding?  It is racism.  Thus a debate to help determine the next republican candidate for president was sponsored by stupid education hating racists and they got just what they wanted.  This is scary kids.

So the tea baggers gathered a bunch of liars to stand on a stage and lie to each other, the crowd and the American public all in the name of hatred.  The debate seemed to me to be nothing more than a constant barrage of attacks on President Obama.  The debaters came up with nothing original, nothing to help the economy, nothing about education or stopping global warming.  Oh wait, they all think that scientists just made that up.  See, stupid people.  Why should science account for anything?  Those people have an education and have done the research while these candidates just choose to believe in their own delusional fantasies and think that an invisible man is telling them that being gay is evil.  (It’s not)

Let’s start with America’s biggest idiot and the poster child for stupidity, Michele Bachmann.  First of all, saying this woman is a liar and has the intelligence of broccoli is nothing new.    As always, she keeps finding more and more things to lie about just to appease her uneducated and unintelligent fan base.  Politifact.com has looked at 34 different statements from the religious ding a ling and found that only two were true, two were mostly true and three were half true.  That leaves 27 mostly false, totally false or pants on fire statements from her big mouth.  Among my favorites are her blaming Jimmy Carter for swine flu and that she never received a penny from her family farm that received federal crop subsidies.  (According to Politifact, her financial disclosure forms showed she received between $32,503.00 and $105,000.00 in farm income between 2006 & 2009)

So is she a liar or just plain stupid?  Well, based on the facts that she does not know the difference between John Wayne and John Wayne Gacy, or that she thinks she can “pray the gay away” you’d have to say she is stupid.  Based on her statements last night you could say she was a liar.  In reality, it’s probably a lot of both.

Last night was no exception to her stupidity and lies as she said that President Obama “stole” $500 billion from Medicare in order to switch it over to “Obamacare”.  According to politifact.com (and all people that actually have common sense) this statement is false.  President Obama did not steal anything.  If I were the president I would take great offense at this remark.  Maybe it’s a stretch, but to me I feel she is implying that since the president is black he must be a thief.  But let’s set that aside and look at the truth according to politifact.com:

• The health care bill, which was legally passed by congress, does not change what you already have in insurance.  A key point that tea baggers do not understand.  It is there to make sure that everyone gets insured.  Will people be missed?  Yes, because we truly need socialized medicine like they have in Canada, Australia and most industrialized nations.  Until that day happens we will always be stuck with a sub-par system.
• It does not take money from Medicare at all, but rather reduces future spending “to encourage more efficiency and to improve the delivery and quality of care”.  And isn’t that what you tea baggers want?  Less spending on social programs for the poor so you can line the pockets of corporations?

So Michele, you want spending cuts, but only if you cut them, is that right?  Stupid, lying bitch.

Now let’s take a look at the tea baggers biggest lunkhead, uber-Christian Rick Perry.  As you know, Perry is a proponent of executions, denier of global warming, evolution and science in general.  Never mind that he drives a car that was created as the result of science or that he flies in a plane that was conceived thanks to science and probably uses a cell phone that was developed and invented thanks to, that’s right, science.  I’m not 100% sure on this, but I am pretty sure he thinks dinosaurs and humans lived together in harmony about 6000 years ago.  He apparently has no idea what a Ponzi scheme really consists of and appears to have little to no compassion to anyone less fortunate than himself.

Perry also has a rigid stance on abortion.  He basically wants to take away any woman’s right to have control over her own body.  I’m sorry, but unless Perry has every intention of taking care of clothing, feeding, educating and caring for every unwanted child in this country he needs to shut his trap and change his stance.

Perry stated that President Obama “had $800 billion worth of stimulus in the first round of stimulus. It created zero jobs, $400-plus billion dollars in this package. And I can do the math on that one. Half of zero jobs is going to be zero jobs”.  Well what a surprise to learn that other than the fact that he has figured out how to divide by zero, that is an out an out lie.

Again, according to Politifact and a report released in March of this year it is estimated “that between 2.5 million and 3.6 million jobs were created or saved by the stimulus through the fourth quarter of 2010”.  Let’s see now, 3.6 million divided by zero is…wait a minute Perry, you can’t divide by zero you asshole!  If you take the most recent quarter reported you can see that “just for the quarter April 1 to June 20, 2011, the country had a reported 555,029 full-time equivalent jobs funded by the Recovery Act”.  That’s a whole lot more than zero Perry.  You sir are a big, fat liar pandering to your bigoted, partisan and racist crowd.  (that would be you tea baggers)

(On a side note I think we have learned that neither Bachmann nor Perry can do simple math.  I’m just saying.)

Let’s get away from the debate for a moment.  Whether you want to believe it or not, things began slowly improving after the Bush debacle, but not fast enough for some people.  Thus last year the American people were duped once again and followed the lead of lemmings and tea baggers and put way too many republicans in elected positions.  You were lied to and you bought into it.  I am begging you not to ever do this again.  Now we are stuck in a quagmire where we have republicans in congress that have, as their only mission, plans to destroy the president.  They do not care about you or me or any of their constituents.  They have one goal and one goal only and that is to undermine the presidency of Barack Obama.  Yes, the guy that actually took the initiative and got rid of Osama bin Laden.  Yep, that guy.

Look, if you are reading this and are in the upper 1% of Americans in income then I fully expect you to vote for one of these clowns.  Otherwise it makes no sense.  We have way too many people in this country that

1. Fail to vote at all
2. Vote along party lines no matter what the circumstances
3. Base their votes on one stupid issue (abortion, anti-gay, I love guns, etc.) even though the party in question has no intention or power to do anything about that issue to begin with
4. Get their information from Fox Opinion Channel
5. Are stupid

Seriously, why do people think the way they do?  There’s something modern science needs to work on.  Bottom line is this:  we have a mess in this country whether it be due to wars that need to be stopped or Wall Street, we have serious issues.  The republicans have no intention of fixing those issues.  That was clear after the way they handled the budget crises this year.  They are against you if you are not a billion dollar corporation or not in the top 1% of Americans in wealth.  If one of these clowns is elected president in 2012 it will be the end of America as we knew it.  Don’t let it happen.

Namaste
