Why do we keep making things SO complicated?

We all know that life today is complicated. Hell, we even have a strategy for dealing with it, it’s called “dumbing shit down,” trying to make complicated things easier for simple slobs like me to understand. That being said, why do the Democrats have the nasty habit of taking really simple shit and making it so much more complicated? Even the mathematical formula is absurdly simple. One deranged loner +One AR-15 with high capacity magazines + One large crowd in a confined space = BREAKING NEWS! Not only is it absurdly simple, it’s also becoming tragically commonplace. So why do Democrats insist on making it so much more complicated than that? Yesterday on MTP Daily, full time host and part time idjit Chuck Todd began a discussion on guns by asking “But can you really call it domestic terror? What if the gunman had one specific target, but more than one person got hurt?” Oooooh, a probing, insightful question. Allow me to respond in kind, Chuckles. “What fucking difference does it make?!?” Domestic means here in the US, you know, like El Paso or Dayton, and terrorism basically means scaring the living shit out of everybody in sight. What possible difference does the specific target, or lack thereof possibly make? If you cut loose with a semi automatic weapon in a crowded place in the US, that’s domestic, and it’s pretty well guaranteed to scare the living shit out of everybody, which is terrorism. Domestic terrorism, get it? Full stop. And the Democratic leaders in congress aren’t faring much better right now. Democratic Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer, as well as Democratic House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, are standing around in front of cameras and microphones, solemnly demanding that Moscow Mitch pull his head out of Oleg Deripaska’s ass, and skedaddle his troops back to Washington, to vote on that 90% approval rating universal background check bill that the House passed in February. And since I didn’t get an answer from Chuckles the Clown to my last question, I have a different question for you, Madame Speaker. Why are you standing around in front of microphones and cameras in San Francisco? And why are all of the other denizens of that monkey island you supervise tramping through theme parks with their kids, or burning to a crisp on beaches in Cabo San Lucas? Forget about Moscow Mitch, why aren’t you calling your kiddies back into a special session? There’s important shit to get done right now, and you’re the ones that need to do it! Right now, banning assault style weapons has a 70% approval rating with the public. Sweet Jesus, if you put ten people around the water cooler, you can’t get 7 of them to agree on which freakin’ restaurant to go to for lunch before the 4th ballot! And banning the sale of high capacity magazines is polling at well above 60%. What are you waiting for? Get cracking! Hit your speed dial, and tell everybody to be back in DC on Monday. Call legislative assistants, and tell them to have the shortest, most concise, constitution friendly bills possible written and ready to rock-and-roll by Monday. Get ’em into committee, marked up, debated, and out of committee, by a party line vote if necessary. Get ’em on the floor, debated, and passed by next Friday, again by a party line vote if necessary, although I […]

Boom! Pelosi calls McConnell ‘Moscow Mitch’

Don’t Miss These Late Summer Hits!

Traditionally, even in presidential years, this is the slowest time of the year for political news. Congress is on their August recess, and most vacations are over with, or just wrapping up. Parents are just finishing up last minute back-to-school shopping, or are collapsed on the couch with the little monsters safely back under somebody else’s watchful eye, and the President himself is somewhere away from the office, giving us our summer reprieve. Thus close to Labor Day, normally the summer blockbuster movie season is winding down. All of the alleged monster hits having already been released when there are more people likely to park the kids in a dark place for a couple of hours. But even in a summer movie season as bereft of really good fare as this one was, all of a sudden, there are several political thrillers that could be box office blowouts, all looking to come out around the same time. Keep an eye out for these. Escape From Mitch Mountain – Everybody thought that it was hysterical when Joe Scarborough of MSNBC seriously tagged Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell with the oh, so elegant moniker of Moscow Mitch. The cherry on the sundae was the way that the nickname drove Yertl McTurtle absolutely insane, forcing him to the floor of the Senate to piss and whine about how his oh, so honorable name and integrity were being impugned by a bunch of vicious lefties. We’re now starting to see just why McConnell went to Defcon 5 so quickly. Several newspapers, along with Rachel Maddow of MSNBC are starting to lay out a very clear timeline of Moscow Mitch’s Machiavellian interference in ensuring that sanctions against Putin aligned aluminum magnate Oleg Deripaska were lifted, despite overwhelming bipartisan support for them to stay in place. Within days, Deripaska’s company ponied up $200 million for a new aluminum plant in the most distressed part of Kentucky. This is blowing up in everybody’s faces. The Kentucky legislature is now royally pissed at the way the state’s Governor deceptively marketed the plan to the legislature in the closing hours of the session, some now claim under false pretenses. The machinations of former Senator David “The Hooker Magnet” Vitter as a go between, and a federal appeals court slot for his totally fruitcake wife are just adding fuel to the fire. This could end up leaving McConnell himself with a full omelet on his face. Deripaska’s company has already threatened that any scrutiny of the deal could cause the company to pull out. Well, the deal is now getting more scrutiny than a new strain of virus, from the media to the KY legislature. McConnell is going up against a female former marine fighter jock, with in state popularity of 32%. If this thing mushroom clouds on him, especially if Deripaska bails out leaving him holding the bag, we could see a Crying Game ending, with McConnell tearfully bitching that everybody in Washington is being mean to him, taking his shriveled old balls, and going home. The Hunt For Beto October – Normally, campaign reboots, especially this early are not a good sign for a campaign. A campaign 2.0 is normally a dead-in-the-water signal flare, and a campaign 3.0 reboot means that the bow just slid under the water. We’re now in the opening credits of Beto 3.0, […]

Active Shooter Still At Large In Philadelphia — Five Officers Shot UPDATE X2

The Nicetown-Tioga area of north Philadelphia erupted in gunfire in the past hour and the shooting is still ongoing. Update – Multiple injuries to Officers. 5 PPD Officers Shot – at area hospitals with non life-threatening injuries. Shooting still active. Avoid area. MEDIA – STOP BROADCASTING TACTICAL POSITIONS OF OFFICERS — Eric Gripp (@PPDEricGripp) August 14, 2019 There are not a lot of details available at this time. This was published at 2:56 p.m. Pacific in the Washington Post: Dramatic live footage from media helicopters showed scores of officers swarming a home in a residential neighborhood. On the ground, reporters’ microphones picked up sounds of gunfire. Authorities have not yet provided details about what led to the shootout. One officer was shot in the head, but is “conscious and communicating,” police told the Philadelphia Inquirer. A second officer was hit in one or both arms, and the third and fourth suffered unknown gunshot wounds. The local CBS affiliate reported that officials believe the injuries to be “non-life-threatening.” This is a developing story and will be updated. in the meantime, bear in mind that we had the Gilroy shooting on July 28, followed by the El Paso shooting on August 3, and Dayton on August 4. UPDATE: As of 4:30 p.m. Pacific, six officers have been shot. One suspect has been apprehended but shooting was still going on as of 45 minutes ago. Raw Story has audio of the police dispatcher and police talking when the incident began. I can’t embed it here, but you can hit the link. UPDATE: As of 4:33 p.m. Pacific, CNN is reporting: Two officers remain trapped inside the house where the shootout first erupted this afternoon, Philadelphia Police Commissioner Richard Ross tells the Philadelphia Inquirer. Philadelphia officers are trying to communicate with the shooter, a police sergeant said.

REVEALED: Citizenship Dir. Cuccinelli Has Been Railing Against “Alien Invaders” Responsible For “Terrorism” For...

Acting director of U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services, Ken Cuccinelli, rose to notoriety recently when he suggested that the famous, welcoming words on the Statue of Liberty could be better phrased, “give me your tired, your poor, who can stand on their own two feet and will not become a public charge.” He didn’t arrive at that charitable notion overnight. He’s been bashing immigrants for years, calling them, “foreign invaders” responsible for “serious infectious diseases, drug running, gang violence, human trafficking, terrorism,” and he founded a group that said as much. CNN: The group, State Legislators for Legal Immigration, was established in 2007, when an immigration revamp was being hotly debated in Congress. Its founding principle was that undocumented immigration represented an invasion of the United States on par with foreign invasion that should justify invoking war powers under the Constitution — extreme rhetoric Cuccinelli has continued to use in recent years, and that has been adopted by President Donald Trump and other Republicans. – Speaking with Breitbart radio in October of last year, Cuccinelli argued that states could use “war powers” to block Central American migrants, many of whom were reportedly planning to seek asylum in the US and who’d formed a so-called caravan, from coming across the border. – “We’ve been being invaded for a long time, and so the border states clearly qualify here to utilize this power themselves. And what’s interesting is they don’t need anyone’s permission,” Cuccinelli said. “They can do it themselves. And because they’re acting under war powers, there’s no due process. They can literally just line their National Guard up with, presumably with riot gear like they would if they had a civil disturbance, and turn people back at the border. Literally, you don’t have to keep them, no catch and release, no nothing. You just point them back across the river and let them swim for it.” Wow. Put on riot gear at the border and force migrants into the water. Extreme, much? Sounds a lot like Donald Trump, when he said “treat the rocks as bullets” to the 7,000 troops he moved into place to guard against a non-existent border crisis that he manufactured in November, 2018, in order to get midterm votes. Here’s the State Legislators For Legal Immigration mission statement. – “State Legislators for Legal Immigration has been formed to serve as a unifying force to bring all levels of government together to terminate America’s illegal alien invasion from the Keystone State of Pennsylvania; to every city, community, small town, main street, front porch and back yard; across our fruited plains; and from sea to shining sea,” the group’s website read at the time, drawing from “America the Beautiful.” Demonizing “the other” is the very cornerstone of fascism. Not in the least bit surprising that it is a principle component of Cuccinelli’s worldview. That much was already apparent. Trump only hires the “best people.”
