Some disgusting and horrible news out of San Diego, as a Tea Party leader (“Co-Organizer and Public Relations Representative for the San Diego Tea Party” according to his website) has been arrested for the kidnapping and rape of a woman:
Michael John Kobulnicky is accused of offering a woman a ride on February 25, but instead of taking her home, he drove to secluded island, pulled the victim out of the vehicle, sexually assaulted her, and left her in the sand. San Diego Police Lt. Andra Brown said, “He dragged her out of the car and sexually assaulted her pretty brutally.”
Kobulnicky, the public relations director for the San Diego Tea Party, is also the former regional director of the Southern California Conservative Party.
Kobulnicky’s website touts his conservative and Christian values. Too bad his life doesn’t seem to follow those values, or any values. And maybe the GOP War on Women is being stepped up a notch…
- Conservatives have turned to murder and mutilation of cats in order to threaten Democrats:
NSFW for Dead Cat Photo
- These gun target signs put up on the doors of Missouri Democrats are totally peaceful surveyor symbols and not a threat the FBI should deal with!
- And another conservative calls for murdering the President to save Israel…
- Here’s some crazy from reddit:
- Hollywood bigwigs have become giant babies because they were unsuccessful in buying Obama over SOPA/PIPA.
- Apple doesn’t manufacture iPhones in the US because of our pesky anti-slavery laws.

If you missed the latest of the many many boring Republican presidential debates (I don’t blame you!), then you missed the Tea Party crowd at the CNN/Tea Party Express (bleh!) Debate cheering for a hypothetical 30 year old productive worker with no health insurance to die. Party of life, indeed! Let’s see how many of those angry mob members themselves don’t have health insurance.
Remember, the Democrats are the real racists, so proudly declare that you are a racist. Uh…..
Greg Skilling interviewed some of the morons:
Some of them think this shirt is dumb as well, so there’s hope.
William Temple of Brunswick, GA (leader of the Tea Party Founding Fathers group) is one of the faces of the Tea Party movement due to his cosplay as a Revolutionary War soldier. Temple also claims to be the pastor of a small African-American church in Georgia. But what is odd about Temple’s outfit, is that he doesn’t look like an American Revolutionary War soldier. His outfit looks like the outfits of the Hessian Jaeger troops. You know, the mercenaries hired by the British to fight the Americans! That’s very patriotic of him…or telling…YOU MAKE THE CALL!
And don’t worry, the teabaggers will have their own “jamboree” to determine which Republican these “independents” will vote for
With the band new direct-to-VD Tea Party fan series about colonial life with totally Conservative values! Like un-wed mothers…
The official site for Courage, New Hampshire
Americans need their story!
The bald truth of the matter is that we don’t get enough of it. A handful of major feature films have been made about the American Revolution and very very few about the formative years from Jamestown to Bunker Hill. America, even today, is still very much about those five generations who braved the New World in the fearful decades between Roanoke and Lexington.
They were a sturdy lot of men and women who dreamed of a city built on a hill. Their struggle to create that city and to sustain a republic dedicated to the rare notion of individual freedom and “unalienable rights” has outlived them, but there’s a side of their story we don’t often study: what made them strong enough to fight?
Courage, New Hampshire is the chronicle of a shire town on the western border of New Hampshire. In those days, the inn keeper was often the justice of the peace as well, and neighborly disputes were moderated at the local public house or tavern. Starting with the winter of 1770, we will be telling the seasonal story of the great events of the era, as seen from a country town distant from the colonial capitals. Each new season of this decade, will take the audience on the road to revolution, along with the citizens of “Courage.”
You can help us tell that story by joining the colony.
..Because one or two movies every twenty years isn’t enough! We want a dramatic series — something you can watch every week.
Let’s get started!
Those one or two moves every twenty years are Red Dawn and Red Dawn (remake), btw!

- Missouri Lt. Gov. Peter Kinder (R) – and possible governor candidate – has spent 329 nights at hotels and casinos in St. Louis and St. Louis County since 2006 and the taxpayers paid the bills. Important government functions? Nope! Baseball games, society balls, political fundraisers… Kinder said “I’m not talking to you” when asked about this.

- Donald Trump has gone full birther and released his birth certificate. Except it’s not a real birth certificate. He finally released his real one. Maybe someone can teach him how to use Google and see Obama’s, which has been online for three years now.
- Poor Republican Rep. Dean Duffy can’t live on his meager $174,000 salary.
- Rep. Chris Smith (R-NJ) feels so strongly about small government he flies overseas on taxpayers’ expense to lobby for stricter abortion controls in Kenya. What controls, considering abortion is illegal in Kenya? He wants to eliminate abortion in cases to protect the life of the mother. Party of Life!

The US has wasted tens of billions of dollars on contractors in Iraq and Afghanistan. But, we must cut money from the poors, not these rich companies!
US Rep. Paul Broun (R-GA) laughed along with the crowd when a supporter asked him when someone was going to shoot President Obama. I’m sure he laughed peacefully at the peaceful questioner who only wants Obama to be shot with a camera, and peacefully reported him to the secret service.
Fucking insane Georgia Republican state rep. Bobby Franklin wants to make miscarriages illegal. Every time a miscarriage happens, there will be a criminal investigation and the woman must prove she didn’t do it herself. Or she gets the death penalty. Culture of life, bitches! Considering like 1/3 of all pregnancies end in miscarriages (many without the woman even knowing), invest your money in death penalty chemicals!
I guess Georgia is sick of Arizona being the worst state in the Union…

But to help them do it they hired 61 assistants, each making more than a $100,000 a year. Salaries in the speaker’s office rose one and a half percent.
Cannon’s top aide, Matthew Bahl, makes $146,000 a year; that’s more than three-and-a-half times the speaker’s salary. Haridopolos’ top aide, Stephen MacNamara, makes more than $175,000, or more than four times the Senate president’s salary.
