Drain Clogs – 07-12-2010

Republicans and Teabaggers are one and the same…who knew?? Oh, yeah, everyone except the morons in the media.

A Federal Judge has ruled DOMA unconstitutional.

TPM enrolled in the Glenn Beck University we wrote about before.

78 people were arrested in Oakland after the involuntary manslaughter verdict of BART police officer Johannes Mehserle for shooting Oscar Grant in the back, 75% of them not from Oakland

Republicans love the constitution except when they want to repeal large chunks of it and also add lots of new amendments. Just remember – they are the Real Patriots.

That lady Terry Savage who hates free lemonade goes on TV to attack free lemonade.

Crazy racist ex-Congressman Tom Tancredo calls President Obama “the greatest threat to the United States today” He then shot his shadow nine times for being “too dark”

Cartoon of the Day:

Another broken Obama promise...

Drain Clogs – 06-29-2010

Idaho GOP joins Texas and Montana in being crazy:

The convention’s platform calls for a radical overhaul of the federal government. One proposal is a Tea Party favorite, calling for the repeal the 17th Amendment, which provides for the direct election of Senators instead of the original system of them being selected by state legislatures. The platform also calls for the state legislature and governor to “nullify any and all existing and future unconstitutional Federal mandates and laws, funded or unfunded, that infringe on Idaho’s Tenth Amendment sovereignty.” In addition, the GOP calls for the state of Idaho to take back federally controlled lands.

Then there is the hard-money plank, which might have come right out of a Goldline ad on talk radio: “We believe Idahoans need to protect their savings from the ravages of inflation, which is hidden taxation, and encourage citizens to participate in a systematic acquisition of precious metals which represent real value as opposed to paper currencies.

One resolution went even further: “Let free Idahoans pay taxes, and other fees due to the State, County and City in silver and or gold in any form. Payments to City, County, or State employees requested to be paid in silver and or gold, Will be complied with.”

Which will be the next state GOP to try to out-crazy the rest? Utah, I’m looking at you!

Republicans hate Thurgood Marshall, don’t know why (gee, I wonder why…)

Instead of raising taxes on the rich, Republican Senate Minority Leader John Boehner has called for raising the retirement age to 70. Suck it, old people, rich people gotta be richer!

Ensuring there’s enough money to pay for the war will require reforming the country’s entitlement system, Boehner said. He said he’d favor increasing the Social Security retirement age to 70 for people who have at least 20 years until retirement, tying cost-of-living increases to the consumer price index rather than wage inflation and limiting payments to those who need them.
