Teabag envy at Time Magazine Person of Year Pick
 

tea-bag-time-mag2in their predictable blend of envy, bitterness and bigotry, the teabag punditi are whining like little ritolin-needy schoolgirls because they didn’t get enough attention from time magazine. time chose to recognize that something far larger than petty parochial politics was afoot in the global uprising of unexpectedly huge and successful protest movements across the planet when it named “the protester” the person of the year.

face it, teabagheads, all you’ve really brought to the table is anti-obama rage and rhetoric funded by global corporate interests intent on the continued shafting of working people. you’re just a band of corporate meatpuppets yelling socialist and commie at anyone who dares offend you with things like actual facts or innovative ideas. none of these traits qualifies you for anything other than the sidelined position of marginalized insignificance you now so deservedly hold.

you continue to lie about who makes up the occupy wall street movement, calling the participants dirty and lazy. this desperation only highlights all that is wrong with you, because the world sees through your empty words and bile-filled envy at being co-opted by a bigger, broader, better idea for the future that you can’t control, and that makes you angry.

the only thing the tea party is now capable of is rallying behind one failed presidential pretender after another like fleas in search of a better, fatter dog. the problem is, once you’ve picked one, your mere presence has only assured their ultimate rejection by the overwhelming majority of real americans, as attested to by even your own polls. you’ve fallen, and you can’t get up.

so now your great white mope is the recycled serial adulterer newt gingrich, because his morality is now your morality. the same newt gingrich with the moral fiber to get caught cheating on two wives while pontificating about family values.

the same newt gingrich with the moral fiber that led to his having 84 ethics charges filed against him while in congress which resulted in his acknowledgement of responsibility and a $300,000 ethics fine.

the same family values candidate whose own fraudulent morality is so repulsive that his own half-sister is actively working to defeat his candidacy.

newt, the same “washington outsider” who accepted millions in lobbying and “speaking” fees  delivered to his beltway office or aboard the private jets he demands in his contracts for such appearances before corporate board groups.

it appears that the only thing teabaggers can’t live with is the truth, about their candidates or about themselves.

so go ahead and whine about the time cover, teabaggers. because when substance trumps rhetoric and phony morals, whining is all you really have left.

  • YIPPIE! The naked truth about free speech, cherished especially on Independence Day

mass2On July 4, 1778, George Washington doubled liquor rations for the soldiers quartered in Princeton, NJ, as a way to celebrate Independence Day. It’s fitting, therefore, that the Fourth of July is America's top-selling beer holiday, according to the Beer Institute. It estimated, in 2013, that sales of beer on the 4th could total $1 billion, doubtlessly higher today. “In moderation,” claims a CA brewery investor, Grover McKean, “beer is tasty and healthy.” Who could disagree?

joe mikaAs Donald Trump faces the top world leaders this week, including a face-time with Vladimir Putin, and as his healthcare proposals face an uphill climb, his poll numbers for how the nation views him could be better.

According to a morning Consult/Politico poll released Wednesday morning, his tweets, including that against MSNBC's Mika Brzezinski, and his personality are not helping him, at all.

indy dayII know the calendar says we are approaching the 4th of July, but, it just doesn’t feel like Independence Day.

Perhaps it should.  It’s hot as heck.  The airlines have been packed. The hot dogs are ready for grilling.  The umps are saying, "play ball". The patriotic activities are scheduled. The fireworks are ready-for-blasting. 

Yet, it just doesn’t feel like independence day.

bill rights2To President Thomas Jefferson, July 4th celebrated more than the signing of the Declaration of Independence. He thought it was a link to the future. The message prominent colonists sent to King George III led to the Constitution and the Bill of Rights, the initial and most prominent feature of which is the First Amendment that guarantees free speech. It’s part of the country’s fundamental essence that each man and woman can say what they feel about government, or anything else, proving President Donald Trump needs some civics lessons.
