Moral Relativism, Moral Rot, And The Real Takers

“I mean, give me a break — they’re political hacks,” Putin’s Puppet said. “You have Brennan, you have Clapper, and you have Comey. Comey’s proven now to be a liar, and he’s proven to be a leaker, so you look at that. And you have President Putin very strongly, vehemently says he had nothing to do with that.”

Are there any members of the Trump Cartel who have NOT lied about Russia yet?

This is the despicable and treasonous betrayal of not only a Director of National Intelligence, Director of the CIA, and Director of the FBI, but a betrayal of the thousands of professionals who agree that Putin attacked our election in Trump’s favor. It is betrayal of our democracy and a betrayal of our nation. Siding with Putin while insulting those men and agencies dedicated to protecting our country is the lowest he’s gone yet.

And he did it on foreign soil...And on Veterans’ Day...And his party and his cult are still loyal to this malignant tumor on humanity.

The Party of Trump is on full display, showing they have no morals. Very few, mostly those not up for election, speak out against the monsters in power. The moral rot of the Party of Trump is more than evident.

Meanwhile the Party of Mammon makes it clear who they represent.  

Rep Chris Collins (R-NY) on tax reform: "My donors are basically saying, 'Get it done or don’t ever call me again.'"

Reporter Frank Thorp: “What happens if GOP isn't able to pass tax reform?”

Lindsey Graham( R-SC): "The party fractures, most incumbents in 2018 will get a severe primary challenge, a lot of them will probably lose, the base will fracture, the financial contributions will stop, other than that it'll be fine!"

The Party of Trump continues its crusade of kleptocracy to coddle the rich and screw the little guy.

Here’s your “tax cuts”, chumps.

Rep. Suzan DelBene (D-Wa.) questioned Thomas Barthold, chief of staff for Congress’ Joint Committee on Taxation on the proposed GOP tax overhaul:

Will a teacher in my district who buys pens, pencils paper, for his students be able to deduct these costs from his tax return under this plan?
Simple answer: No.

Will a corporation that buys pens, pencils, and papers for its workers be able to deduct those costs from its tax returns under this plan?
Simple answer: Yes.

Will a firefighter from my district be able to deduct the state and local sales taxes that she pays from her tax returns under this plan?
Simple answer: No.

And will a corporation be able to deduct sales taxes on business purchases under this plan?
Simple answer: Yes.

Will a homeowner in my district be able to deduct more than $10,000 in property taxes under this plan?
Simple answer: No.

Will a corporation be able to deduct more than $10,000 in property taxes under the plan?
Simple answer: Yes.

And if a worker in my district had to move because his employer is forcing him to relocate his family or potentially lose his job, can he deduct his moving expenses under this plan?
Simple answer: No.

But if a company, a corporation, decides to close its facilities in my district, fire its workers, and move its operation to China, say, can it deduct associated moving expenses under this plan? Or stated another way: Can a corporation under this plan deduct outsourcing expenses incurred relocating a U.S. business outside of the United States?
Simple answer: Yes.

Duped and gullible Christians dutifully vote for their Party or Mammon, of, by, and for the wealthy elite. 

Matthew 6:21 For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also.

“It just looks like the Republicans are taking the money from the Democrat states and giving it to the Republican states,” GOP Sen. Rand Paul (Ky.) said in September, adding that it’s a “game of Republicans sticking it to Democrats.”

The hateful assholes have no shame and no conscience.

“We should criminalize homosexuality,” declares “values” candidate Roy Moore.

Alabama State Auditor Jim Ziegler knows IOKIYAR. "Also take Joseph and Mary," he said. "Mary was a teenager and Joseph was an adult carpenter. They became parents of Jesus...There’s just nothing immoral or illegal here. Maybe just a little bit unusual.”

You see? Roy Moore is practically a saint, persecuted by the evil Satanists of the liberal media. 

They are deplorable, and they love to prove it.

Roy Moore can molest a 14 year old girl, and several more teenagers, while his “Christian” supporters do not care. They voted for their pussy grabbing racist liar to be president, so their so-called “values” are basically a sham. Or they can plead ignorance or stupidity. Either way, they have screwed our country more than their feeble minds and shallow values will ever comprehend.

Remember their classic projection when they accused liberals of "moral relativism"? 

Now it's Make America Grope Again, amirite?

Keep voting for the real takers, liars, racists, and molesters, folks. You’ll get just what you deserve.

Another right-on-point post, Dave.

The Christian voters in this nation are followers of their Christ in name only. They mostly support every Republican initiative or policy, which are totally inconsistent with the precepts and teachings of their supposed messiah.

Their religious institutions are nothing more than social centers and quasi-political organizations, which should be taxed just like any other profit-making enterprise. They hide behind their tax exempt status while propping up and openly supporting candidates and referendums that attack democratic liberties and human rights.

Aptly said, their moral conscience and position is relative to who's doing the f#@king and who's on the receiving end. I say to hell with 'em all.

Dave Dubya said...


While there are many progressive thoughtful Christians of conscience, their Right Wing Authoritarian brethren have a tendency to follow the worst men in history.

It's not be hard to imagine they would support another Hitler. Have they already?

Hitler hated liberals, journalism, minorities, and educators. Check.

Hitler hated homosexuals and prohibited abortion. Check.

On October 10, 1936 Heinrich Himmler created the Reich Central Office for Combating Homosexuality and Abortion, or Special Office (II S), a sub-department of Executive Department II of the Gestapo.

Hitler pandered to Christians. Check.

"The National Government will regard it as its first and foremost duty to revive in the nation the spirit of unity and cooperation. It will preserve and defend those basic principles on which our nation has been built. It regards Christianity as the foundation of our national morality, and the family as the basis of national life." - Adolph Hitler "My New World Order" - Proclamation to the German Nation, Berlin, February 1, 1933

“What good fortune for those in power that people do not think.” – Adolph Hitler

JG - “ They hide behind their tax exempt status while propping up and openly supporting candidates and referendums that attack democratic liberties and human rights.”

So true, JG. If you think about it, there is nothing democratic and there is no interest in human rights in mainstream Christian religions. They was people to blindly follow what they say. They want people to blindly give what they say to give. They want people to blindly do what they say they should do. They philosophy is “We say, you do”. End of discussion.

Fundamentalists blindly follow and do what they are told. They are not to think, not to question, and they are certainly not to dissent. The religious leaders tell them what their rights are and tell them what to do and think.

There is nothing democratic about religion.

And they most certainly should be taxed just like any other business, because that is what they are, a business;ess,...and in addition, they making a living off the the suffering of people, while offering a minimal, if any, substantive relief from that suffering.

It also ignores the offshoring of billions/trillions of dollars in income, and does nothing to close these glaring loopholes (as described in detail in the Paradise Papers).
According to the Washington Post, “The lost revenue is enormous. The largest corporations have booked an estimated $2.6 trillion — yes, trillion with a “t” — as if it were earned abroad, avoiding an estimated $752 billion in taxes.

The FACT Coalition estimates that wealthy individuals avoid some $35 billion to $70 billion in taxes annually. “Little people” — largely the middle class and small businesses — are forced to make up the difference, either in higher taxes and fees or in reduced services.

“Little people” ("Only little people pay taxes" - Leona Helmsley) drive over aged bridges and on potholed streets, take on debt to pay for college, endure aging water and sewage systems and more as the wealthy stash assets abroad to avoid high taxation.”

This tax plan also:

Doesn’t address the massive infrastructure spending required to keep this country competitive – or the public safe! Our bridges, highways, and ancient grid are CRUMBLING – and the answer is NOT billions of additional handouts to wealthy individuals and corporations! NO, IT DOESN’T “TRICKLE DOWN”, which has been proven by every reputable, objective economic study.

Eliminates the student loan interest deduction – are you kidding me??? Haven’t students been ripped off enough by the government??!!

Give huge tax breaks to corporations that shift jobs overseas.

Cut corporate taxes by $2.6 trillion but raise taxes on working Americans and seniors on fixed incomes by $500 billion.

Create a special low-income rate for wealthy business owners, corporate lobbyists and lawyers, but exempt those working for a salary of hourly wages.

Inserts the inaccurate and inappropriate the language “unborn child” into the federal tax code.

In short, this so-called tax plan is nothing but a duplicitous scheme to transfer unprecedented wealth from the middle class and working families to the very rich. IT IS UNACCEPTABLE ON EVERY LEVEL!

Jerry Critter said...

In 1950 individuals paid about 1.5 times what business paid in federal taxes. In 2015 that had increased to individuals paying about 5 times what business pays.

Clearly we need to increase what business pays and decrease what individuals pay.

There's a revolution coming. I'm not sure what kind of revolution it will be, or the shape it will take, or even what it will look like. Nobody does.

Not unlike Wolin's concept of "inverted totalitarianism", in his book Democracy, Inc., maybe it will be like no other revolution ever seen in the world before.

On the other hand, maybe it'll be no different.

Dave Dubya said...

"In the Soviet Union, capitalism triumphed over communism. In this country, capitalism triumphed over democracy."— Fran Lebowitz

The revolution is over, folks. The far Right/corporate coup has taken power. The paranoid militia Right fretted about the end of nations and one world government. What happened was the end of democracy and global corporate power over their puppet nations and governments. They still get to wave their flags and wage their war on education, journalism, unions, and voter rights, so they're happy.

Looks like the chickens have come home to roost for the clown Al Franken.

I'm glad he is being exposed for the creep he really is. How this clown got into the Senate in the first place is really amazing.

The picture of him groping that woman's mammories is priceless. Thanks for the laughs Al!

Glad to hear your donors are bailing on you.

Dave Dubya said...

Glad to hear your donors are bailing on you. Let’s raise a drink to bailing for decency! How about a delicious hot Keurig?

Republicans like Hannity are so repulsive they are losing corporate sponsors.

I gotta thank Arch for demonstrating the title of the post. He’s been very dependable that way. He thinks Franken is a creep for his stupid stunt of touching a flack vest over a jacket, but what about the admitted sex offender in the White House? Where did he touch those women again?

When did Arch express his outrage over the groping creeps and molesters at FOX?

Not a peep. Don’t tell me. It’s OK if you are Trump, or a Republican, right? Just ask Ol’ Roy “Mall Stalker” Moore. How’s that for moral relativism?

The liberal Huffpost has this headline: “Senator Franken Calls For An Investigation Of Himself, But Is That Enough?”

How many Republicans want to investigate the pussy grabber in the White House? How about FOX? Moral relativism is demonstrated there on a cult-like scale.

And there’s the Party of Mammon’s moral rot in raising taxes on the middle class and giving the rich huge tax cuts. The real takers would pocket billions, while people lose health care.

But we know all that.

Could Arch be hoping to distract us from this interesting news?

The Senate Judiciary Committee is asking Kushner about the “Russian backdoor overture and dinner invite” he failed to previously disclose to investigators.

Sneaking around and colluding with Russians is very creepy. Then he lied about it. Perjury and obstruction of justice await just around the corner.

Naughty boy, that Jared. Didn't his father teach him not to lie before he went to prison?

Dave Dubya said...

Just for "values voter" Arch.

Groper-in-Chief, Donald “Tic-Tac” Trump: “I’m automatically attracted to beautiful women — I just start kissing them, it’s like a magnet. Just kiss. I don’t even wait. And when you’re a star, they let you do it. Grab them by the pussy You can do anything.”

Dave Dubya said...

Donald “Tic-Tac” Trump says, "Just kiss. I don’t even wait. And when you’re a star, they let you do it."

From what we gather from Arch, the women really don't matter. Franken is a star, so that means its OK for "Mr. Tic-Tac" and Arch.

What matters to Arch is a Democrat is accused, for a change. It's the hate. Their fundamental "value" is clear.

Jefferson's Guardian said...

Dave Dubya: "I gotta thank Arch for demonstrating the title of the post. He’s been very dependable that way."

Ah, yes, "moral relativism". It's all over Chuck like a cheap suit. LOL

"Naughty boy, that Jared. Didn't his father teach him not to lie before he went to prison?"

Perhaps twin jail cells could be arranged for Ivanka's husband and daddy? ;-)

"It's the hate."

If there's one thing Chuck knows intimately, it's hate. He's lived a lifetime studying it and becoming an expert in projecting it.

It's good to know there are better, kinder, smarter Americans than those on the far Right:

Advice for coping with the Trump era.

Dave Dubya said...

And from another classy lady, New Zealand's progressive new Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern:

“I was waiting to walk out to be introduced at the East Asia Summit gala dinner, where we all paraded and while we were waiting, Trump in jest patted the person next to him on the shoulder, pointed at me and said, 'This lady caused a lot of upset in her country,' talking about the election.

I said, 'Well, you know, only maybe 40 per cent,' then he said it again and I said, 'You know,' laughing, 'no one marched when I was elected.'”

Jefferson's Guardian said...

Jacinda Ardern's comment, to our clown of a president, that "no one marched when I was elected" is priceless! I'm betting the clown is still smoldering from that well deserved dig. LOL

Dave, one thing you and I firmly established about conservatives of every ilk and brand is they don't have a sense of humor. When they attempt to convey humor, it most often falls flat and comes across very sophomoric -- as in the clown's attempt. I wonder whether there's a link between the parts of the brain that foster authoritarianism and humor? My guess is yes.

ArchieBunkerNYC said...


There is a good chance Franken(stein) grabbed Leeann's pussy while she slept on that plane.

The sound of Democrat heads exploding over what to do about Franken is deafening.

New York Democratic Senator Kirsten Gillibrand believes that former President Bill Clinton should have resigned in light of the Lewinsky affair.

The Democrat Party is now a bunch of chickens running in circles with no heads!

Dave Dubya said...

The only "humor" I've seen from authoritarians is when the laugh at the misfortune of others.


We see how much "respect" you show for the woman. Just like you've shown for all of Trump's victims by your fanatic devotion to Dear Leader.

And no, he didn't do what Trump bragged about. In fact, the photo doesn't even confirm contact with the woman's flak vest, which is over her jacket. Not exactly a grope.

Crude and rude as Franken was in that isolated incident, it pales to the evil actions of Trump.

Here are the facts. Franken apologized and she accepted. She doesn't think he should resign.

She got over it. Will you?

Compare that to the governor of Alabama who believes Moore's accusers, but will vote for him anyway.

"Values", amirite?

Thank you for noting Gillibrand and the Democrats are now the party of morality, chickens or not.

ArchieBunkerNYC said...

"The only "humor" I've seen from authoritarians is when the laugh at the misfortune of others."

If your incomplete sentence is implying that I'm laughing at the creep Al Franken, then I concur. The creep will be booted from the Senate and return where he belongs as a second-rate comedian. Maybe he can rejoin SNL and do some anti-Trump skits with Alec Baldwin or give Kate McKinnon a real sloppy kiss.

Dave Dubya said...


Once again I thank you for demonstrating the far Right "hate-humor". The Germans have a word for it. Schadenfreude. You can add that to the term Nazi's used to demonize journalism, Lügenpresse. Lying Press. Your German kindred loved using that one, too.

Isn't education grand?

And thanks for the bonus example of marginal illiteracy and weak understanding of grammar. The sentence was complete with subject, verb and modifiers.

We know you hate teachers and education, so thanks for showing us the results of your contempt.

So Franken is a creep for one kiss and a bad gag photo, yet you are silent about President Tic-tac and child molester Roy Moore. We presume IOKIYAR to commit criminal sexual conduct.

Thanks again for your moral relativism and fanatic devotion to your cult leader.

Molesters Moore and Mr. "I moved on her like a bitch" are Making America Grope Again.

Perhaps you idolize those MAJOR creeps because no woman is interested in you? Sad.

I dare you to try what Moore and Trump did. Of course, since you don't have a cult following, we'd have to lock you up. That would be criminal behavior.

Your heroes are getting indicted, BTW. The most dishonest and corrupt administration is going down in disgrace and are a shame to our country.

They are so vile, Angela Merkel is now considered to be the leader of the free world.

How's that for MAGA?

Jerry Critter said...

Perhaps Arch should listen to his fearless leader again.

Jefferson's Guardian said...

Hey Jerry, just so Chuck (aka ArchieBunkerUSA) is afforded the convenience of viewing the video you provided, I've created a hyperlink.

This portrays a glimpse of the slithering snake that this narcissist sociopath really is. It's still amazing to me that the American people would scrape the bottom of the barrel for their 45th president. Even more amazing, that his devoted base -- which includes the deplorable likes of Chuck Morre -- would continue to support him.

Oh well, all's well that ends well. Karma has a way of teaching life's transgressions and wrongdoings and failures, often in a way where the offender is on the "receiving end" -- if you catch my drift. ;-)

Jerry Critter said...

Thanks, JG. I thought about making it a hyperlink, but thought that Arch would just think it was pretty colored text and not know to click on it.

Dave Dubya said...

Arch won't bother with the video. He's just like this Trump voter panelist:

"If Jesus Christ gets down off the cross and told me Trump is with Russia, I would tell him, 'Hold on a second. I need to check with the President if it's true.'"

“I believe in him. He is a good man...I love the guy”.
- High School educated Mark Lee, pest control.

Amazing, isn't it?

They are in every way a cult. Morality is whatever their Leader says or demonstrates. That is how the con-servative cult twists morals to accommodate their deplorable turpitude.

This leaves liberals as the last bastion of morality, decency, and values. We can thank Arch for showing his true colors and validating our decency.

To them, Al Franken is the devil for doing the same grab-ass thing Bush Sr. has done. Yes, IOKIYAR.

Trump and Moore's blatant criminal sexual conduct is conveniently ignored by the "law and order" hypocrites.

They are all about Party over First Amendment free press, Party over the country, Party over the law, Party over the planet, Party over clean air, Party over clean water, Party over decency, Party over morality...In other words, "Party Uber Alles!"

Goebbels would've been proud of his legacy, just as Putin is now.

ArchieBunkerNYC said...

On Monday’s "Morning Joe," co-host Mika Brzezinski absolutely trashed former President Bill Clinton in a scathing monologue about his alleged sexual predation:

You guys, I'm sorry, but [long pause] I'm not sorry, actually. Hillary Clinton needs to stop. She needs to stop talking about this topic unless Bill Clinton wants to come forward and apologize for being a sexual harasser, for settling with women, for what happened with – he needs to apologize. He needs to apologize as quickly as Al Franken did. ...

Mika, better late than never.

Finally some on the left have pulled their heads out of their @ss, unlike many on this blog.

Charlie Rose and John Conyers are next to hit the road with Franken.

I'm sorry but its priceless to see the Democrats eat their own and drown in their own hypocrisy.

Dave Dubya said...

Arch is discovering the human decency that is common on the left, that has become rare or abandoned on the Right.

As he deflects from Trump's and Moore's criminal behavior, and their supporters' repugnant defense of them, he shows us the core of moral rot behind his party of Trump. IOKIYAR has become their operating principle of moral relativism and their sociopathic absence of values.

Just ask:

Ninni Laaksonen

Mindy McGillivray

The list goes on...

It's not hard to imagine where Arch's head is stuffed, amirite?

ArchieBunkerNYC said...

"IOKIYAR has become their operating principle of moral relativism and their sociopathic absence of values."

Kinda like John Conyers sexual harassment of staff and then using taxpayer money to settle charges out of court? Sounds like Moral Rot. amirite?

Dave Dubya said...


Thanks for sharing your moral rot by deflecting from, and shilling for, YOUR favorite child molester and sexual predator in chief.

Washington (CNN)Rep. John Conyers, D-Michigan, has stepped down as ranking member of House Judiciary Committee amid a congressional investigation into sexual harassment and workplace abuse allegations by his former staffers.

Conyers will not be voted back in office.

As for Trump and Moore? IOKIYAR.

This is classic authoritarianism on display.

Jerry Critter said...

Arch continues to prove your points.

Jerry Critter: "Arch continues to prove your points."

Each and every time! It's hilarious!

Dave's what's known as a conservative trapper -- except instead of collecting furs for warmth and meat for subsistence, he captures their hypocrisy, deceit and dishonesty and hangs the pelts on a fence to dry and cure in the cleansing light of transparency.

Bravo! LOL
