Promises, Promises

Wasn’t it just last week when the most hateful thing ever said was by Hilary Rosen? Something about Ann Romney having "never worked a day in her life."

The horror!

Republicans and other aristocrats were shocked, shocked at the vile hate speech and quickly demanded more civility from those hateful Democrats.


So, why should anyone be upset by Ted Nugent’s latest display of venomous ignorance? Those silly politically correct liberals must be so thin-skinned.

For someone as intensely vocal in his opposition to drugs, Teddy boy certainly appeared to have taken a big shrill pill at last week’s NRA convention. After his paranoia and hate came pouring out of his mouth for the consumption of his fellow gun nuts, the Secret Service was obligated to investigate.

Ironically, once again another radical Right Winger just wasted some more of our tax dollars.

"We are aware of the incident with Ted Nugent, and we are conducting appropriate follow-up," said Secret Service spokesman Brian Leary in a statement. "We recognize an individual's right to freedom of speech but we also have a responsibility to determine and investigate intent."

Yes they had to go question Teddy boy because of his violence-inciting hate talk.

We remember back in 2008 when his typically foul mouth shot off, “Obama, he's a piece of shit. I told him to suck on my machine gun”. And, “Hey Hillary, you might want to ride one of these into the sunset, you worthless bitch.”

Now he’s back with even more bile.

"We need to ride into that battlefield and chop their heads off in November," Nugent said at the convention.

Ok. We get the bloody framing of the democratic process with this remark. Fine.

But that wasn’t enough. He needed to kick it up a notch.

At the convention Teddy boy admonished the solvent and oil scented firearms enthusiasts, if they do not "clean house in this vile, evil, America-hating administration, I don't even know what you're made out of."

Hateful American extremists really do love to call White House Democrats a “vile, evil, America-hating administration”, don't they?

People who listen to him are fools. Apart from hunting, Teddy boy is not an expert at anything. Your average high school music teacher knows way more about music.

Ted may be a better than average hunter and a mediocre, one-key musician, but he takes the cake as a reactionary royal asshole.

Now he’s off into the full-tilt ravings of a true fascist.

On the Dana Loesch radio show Tuesday he said, “It's about 'we the people' taking back our American dream from the corrupt monsters in the federal government under this administration and the communist czars [Obama has] appointed."

Fascism: Exhibit “A”. People you hate are a bunch of commies.

"I've never in my life threatened anyone's life," he added. Maybe not, but his incendiary hate speech is quite enough to inspire some fellow gun nut to do the job for him.

I happen to know a Secret Service guy. We both grew up in the same small town in the big woods where we hunted and fished throughout our younger days. He told me they call the fringe types, “gun fags”.

My favorite part was when Teddy told the frightened gun sheeple, "If Barack Obama becomes the president in November again, I will either be dead or in jail by this time next year."

“Don’t laugh! Do you think that’s funny?” Teddy scowled at an amused listener.

Well I think it’s funny. Not that we rejoice in, or fear, the imminent demise or incarceration of a lunatic of the Hutaree Militia class.

No. I laugh at yet another empty promise from the radical Right BS factory.

Projecting Stupid

Obama was recently mentioning the hypocisy shown by the radical Right with their desire to have the Supreme Court overturn the Affordable Health Care Act.

Remember when they complained about a contemptable "activist" Supreme Court whenever it disagreed with the Right? Remember when they whined about the terrible lack of "judicial restraint" from the Court?

Now add an "attack on Supreme Court independence" to their shrill squawking.

On Twitter, Chuck "Death Panels"Grassley wrote: "Constituents askd why i am not outraged at PresO attack on supreme court independence. Bcause Am ppl r not stupid as this x prof of con law."

We can only hope and pray the "Am ppl" are not as stupid as Mr. Death Panels and Sarah Palin.

From Politico:

Sen. Chuck Grassley (R-Iowa) is warning that Americans should be worried about an "end of life" provision in the House health care bill. “In the House bill, there is counseling for end of life,” Grassley said Wednesday during a town hall in Winterset, Iowa. “You have every right to fear. You shouldn’t have counseling at the end of life, you should have done that 20 years before. Should not have a government run plan to decide when to pull the plug on grandma.”

A rumor that the legislation will determine when older Americans end their lives is rampant at town hall meetings, propelled in part by former Alaska GOP Gov. Sarah Palin who warned the Democratic plan would create bureaucratic "death panels."

The House health care plan would require Medicare to fund voluntary end-of-life counseling sessions for older Americans. Grassley fueled -- rather than corrected-- the rumor at the packed town hall Wednesday morning, when asked about older Americans being "denied health care." “There are some people who think it is a terrible problem that grandma is laying in a bed with tubes in her, and that the government should intervene,” he said. “I think that’s a family or religious thing that needs to be dealt with.”

Yes, "you have every right to fear" all right, but not for grandma. You can fear for the future of our democratic republic. You can fear for our grandkids. You can fear the Republicans' war on democracy. You can fear the effects of the vile propaganda from ignorant liars and fear mongers like Grassley.

So, "Death Panel" Chucky, tell us please. Tell us where those death panels are lurking? Show your voters how smart you are compared to that "stupid" x prof.

Not that your voters care. Stupid is as stupid votes.
