A lot of Republicans have gone off the deep end into crazy land.

Considering how much the Republicans bitch about too much sex permeating popular culture these days you’d think they’d keep something like Tea Bagging in their bedrooms, but lately they’ve been doing it quite a bit in public much to my amusement. Naturally this is a case of the Republicans meaning one thing and everyone else having their minds in the gutter, but it somehow seems appropriate. For those of you not up on the more esoteric slang words for various sexual acts allow me to point you to the Wikipedia entry on Teabagging. Go ahead and read it, we’ll wait right here.

Done? OK. Now what the Republicans are actually referring to when they use the term “Tea Bagging Party” is a supposedly grass-roots protest over various budget proposals put forth by the Obama administration. The name is meant to invoke thoughts of the original Boston Tea Party which, if you recall your history classes, was about taxation without representation. Needless to say the fact that the Republicans are not victims of taxation without representation, are in fact very well represented in Congress, is totally lost on the gibbering idiots who are taking part in these protests. Apparently the word “Tea” in this case is actually an acronym for “Taxed Enough Already”, which is ironic considering that most Republicans in America would actually have lower taxes under Obama’s proposals and even the new taxes on the rich Republicans would still be lower than what they were paying under Republican President Ronald Reagan. As is their usual tactics the Republicans aren’t letting pesky facts and their own self-interest get in the way of their opposition to anything Obama might try to do.

There have already been a number of smaller “Tea Parties” around the nation and today they’re hoping to break a record by having protests all around the country where millions of angry ignorant Republicans literally mail tea bags to members of Congress as opposed to throwing them into a nearby harbor. Given the sexual meaning of the word “tea bagging” this has naturally led to all manner of snickering on the part of those of us who tend to snicker at double entendres. It doesn’t help that the more liberal journalists out there are milking this for all they can. Take, for example, this segment by Dave Schuster on MSNBC’s Countdown with Kieth Olbermann:

That’s pure comedy gold there. Meanwhile the Republicans not only seem to be stunningly unaware of what fools they’re making of themselves, but they’re paranoid enough to wonder if the Obama administration might send spies to the Tea Parties:

Today, the Department of Homeland Security released a report on the growing influence of radical right-wing extremists. On Fox News this afternoon, guest host David Asman willingly tied the Fox-promoted, lobbyist-funded, “grassroots” tea party movement to such right-wing radicals, and suggested that the Obama administration might send “spies” to the tea parties to track extremists:

I’m looking at the report and it says, among other things, that the federal government is going to begin gathering information on right-wing extremist activity in the United States. Does that mean they’re going to be sending spies to these tea parties?

Asman continued to group conservatives with radical extremists later in the segment, asking whether the DHS report was just “an effort to shut up their critics.”

Isn’t that the sort of thing the last Republican administration did? Why yes, yes it was. Hell he even went one better and put a system in place to spy on all Americans whenever they make a phone call or use the Internet, and these idiots are worried that Obama might have spies at their Tea Bagging parties?

The far Right in this country have gone absolutely ape-shit since the election, buying up guns like crazy and calling for Obama’s impeachment before he’s really had a chance to do much of anything he cold be impeached for, and we’re already starting to see the crazy come to a head. Richard Poplawski, the nutcase who put on a bullet proof vest and waited for police to show up and then killed three of them, was allegedly worried about the Obama administration’s plans to ban all guns. A plan which, as near as anyone who’s sane can determine, doesn’t exist and probably won’t, ever. Of course the first thing all the Conservative pundits who have been calling on people to buy guns and plan for a revolution did was try to absolve themselves of responsibility for encouraging that kind of crazy, but don’t expect it to stop just because on of their number actually acted on it.

And if you think the people participating in these Tea Bagging protests aren’t that kind of crazy, well, I’ve got one more YouTube clip for you to consider taken at a Project 912 Glenn Beck Tea Party:

Some of my favorite bits include the man ranting about how the Digital TV Conversion boxes you’re going to need if you still have an analog TV set is actually a brain washing unit designed to turn you into a socialist. Never mind that the DTV transition started up years ago under the Bush Administration which means that they’d have to be complicit in it. He also thinks the colleges are brain washing your kids. Then there’s the lady who calls for burning of college books that are used for brain washing such as the ones that teach “the evolution crap.”

These people are fucking nuts and they’re organizing and buying up guns. They are staggeringly disconnected from reality and are being manipulated by Conservative leaders to encourage that disconnect. I am seriously concerned that Poplawski may just be the first such nutcase to act upon the bullshit he’s being fed. 

The “Freepers” go nuts over Obama win

Every now and then, when I’m feeling brave, I’ll venture onto the Free Republic website and take a gander at what the batshit insane population is saying. This community is composed mostly of that 20% of Far Right Americans who still think George W. Bush is the greatest thing to ever happen to this country. These are not people who tend to live within the confines of reality when delusion is so much more comforting. Needless to say when reality slaps them in the face, as it did last night, they can get a little worked up:

Welcome to Obamanation by SFC MAC

Looks like the ACORN cheating paid off. This newly anointed moron will make Jimmy Carter and Bubba Clinton’s disastrous domestic policies, foreign policy debacles, and malicious pursuit to eviscerate the military, pale in comparison.

No self-respecting democratic Republic will give legitimacy to a socialist president, but then no self-respecting democratic Republic would permit someone like Obama to be a Senator, let alone presidential candidate.

The bulk of the ‘first time voters’ were bribed skid row drunks, college-aged kids who cast their ballot for an MTV icon, and blacks who voted for Obama because of his ethnicity. Then there are the requisite liberals–black, white, and hispanic–who will vote for a democrat, regardless. It was no landslide–the popular vote was close-51.3 percent to 47.5 percent–but it demonstrates that at least 51.3 percent of these voters have no problem with defecating on their own country.

[…] I live in Lorain, about 30 miles west of Cleveland. The entire region of NE Ohio has been a democratic cesspool for decades, and the union hacks just don’t understand why the Steel Mill and the Ford Plant are virtual ghost towns. It’s fucking depressing to see how dilapidated Lorain has become. They really think that Mr. Hopey Changytude will rob the ‘evil, oppressive, rich, white’ corporations, and come through the neighborhood with a sack full of money like a ghetto Santa Claus. Trouble is, these leeches are used to sucking off of the public teat. Why work at all when the Democrats force taxpayers to foot the bill?

I’m a retired U.S. Soldier. I AM Joe the Plumber. I’m sick to death of moonbats flinging the race card because they’ve run out of excuses for lazy, unmotivated, professional welfare recipients who blame everything on their skin color. Speaking of which, their boy Obama sat in a church for 20 years listening to the very wealthy Rev Jeremiah (god-damn America) Wright spew all kinds of hateful racist crap against ‘whitey’ and Jews. Wright will probably pick up where he left off.

[…] Our war against Islamofacism will likely suffer, if not grind to a halt. American troops who fought so valiantly in the region of the world that breeds the terrorists who attacked this country, will now be forbidden to do what it takes to accomplish the mission and prosecuted for doing so.

The Eurotrash, North Korea, China, Venezuela, and Islamic comrades (Iran, in particular) are rejoicing in this latest tragicomic episode in American politics. We are now saddled with a corrupt, socialist, terrorist cavorting, narcissistic charlatan, who suits their agenda. Obamabots placed all of their faith and adoration into an empty suit with serious defects.

Obama will kowtow to all of the world’s malefactors, fulfilling his promise to ‘negotiate without pre-conditions’. To all the asshatswho foolishly believe that being a pliant doormat will somehow make the United States a more “moral, respected, endearing, popular, positive role model”, brace yourselves. It will only serve to encourage hostile nations, Islamic ones in particular, to take advantage of a deteriorated American political and economic system, rife with Democratic milksops. All in the name of ‘world image’.

[…]We will demand that Obama and his ACORN gang be brought to justice for voter fraud, racketeering, and abuse of law enforcement through intimidation of critics. The laws they broke during this campaign were blatant, numerous, and sanctioned by Obama and his staff. The Department of Justice needs to get off its complacent ass and go after internal threats for a change.

We will be unrelenting in our call for the investigation of radical miscreants like William Ayers, and prosecution of any and all militant Islamic individuals, groups, and sects, including CAIR, Nation of Islam, and the AAAN (Arab American Action Network). They shouldn’t be allowed in this country to begin with, and the State Department needs to be held accountable for their presence.

We will continue to hammer the MSM leftwing mouthpeices–MSNBC, ABC, MBC, ABC, and CNN–for their rancid anti-American bias. We’ll also make sure the Democrat effetes in Congress and Senate, who got placed there by equally unconscionable constituents, continue to get the hell they so richly deserve.

We won’t forget which traitors in the Democratic party and the MSM prostituted themselves through word and deed, to the Islamofascists and the world’s Bolsheviks, because their hatred for the military, this country, and Republicans, overrides any sense of loyalty.

You don’t need to question their patriotism when they show a complete lack of it on their own.

A special note to you Hollywood leftwingnuts like Whoopie Goldberg, Alec Baldwin, Akon, Babs Streisand, et al, who threatened to, but did not, leave the country for the last 2 elections if George Bush became President: You now have an excuse to stick around and run your mouths for at least 4 years before we kick your Obamessiah out of office.

We will be just as ‘civil’ and ‘respectful’ to an Obamanation administration as the frothing leftwing moonbats “tolerant, even-minded liberals” were during 8 years of the Bush administration.

Welcome to 4 years of a Socialist America.

Just don’t expect the rest of us to follow suit.

Note that I excerpted that from a much longer rant. If you thought that was impressive, you should see some of the replies. This next one is so full of crazy that I couldn’t figure out how to except it so I’m posting it in all its brain dead glory:

AMERIDATE: 0001 PSUA…POST SOCIALIST UTOPIAN AGE

When I went to bed last night I was an American; I woke this morning a man with no country, no leader, no direction, and no purpose. I did not leave my country, my country abandoned me.

Jesus asked his Father to “forgive them for they know NOT what they do.” I am not Jesus and will NOT forgive the murder of a country that I once fought for and was willing to die for, that country no longer exists, a breed of americans (note lower case) have beaten it down and traded it for trinkets worth less than the beads that bought Manhattan Island so long ago.

Do you liberals REALLY believe you are going to get all these things the Boober promised you? Do you think this Muslim-Marxist mutant mole cares about you and wants to shower you with benefits and free money?

WHO ARE YOU?

Where did the Americans go? I don’t know the people who put this phlegm-wad in office. Who the hell are you and what did you do with my country? I do not know you, BUT I WILL. I know where to look for you.

What makes you think you deserve this country? You didn’t bleed for her, you didn’t invest in her spiritually, you mocked her and chastised her even as she sheltered you and kept you safe and warm. Because you did not have the courage and backbone to stand up and fight to save her you have no claim to her future, such as it is, such as it shall become I fear.

I find it ironic that the government which used to pay me combat and flight pay, gave me a weapon and told me to shoot communists has now become that which I used to destroy. This is a journey no man, no warrior should ever have to take, yet here we are, day one of a brazen new world couched in racism and empty rhetoric and worshipped by men and women who are not worth the powder and shot it would take to blow them all to glory. What a long strange trip it has been too.

WHY?

There are many reasons no one reason is a complete telling of this tale. We could analyze the election, the candidates, the tactics and so on and in the end solve nothing…WHY is a luxury we cannot afford yet must pony up to pay for when the bill comes due.

The main reason WHY in a word: APATHY.

We allowed this scum to build up in the filters until it choked the engine to silent sputters then we ignored it until it died. Why is unimportant now, all we are left with is the WHAT DO WE DO NOW?

A brother in ink newsletter writer told me last year..

But, Bean, IT IS ALL OUR OWN DAMN FAULT!

Yes JakSavin, it is our fault. We didn’t care enough to safeguard her, we didn’t believe she was vulnerable and didn’t…scratch that..WOULDN’T see the danger. Well,…do you see it now? You will very soon if not tonight, next week or next month.

How does it feel to watch our own complacency eat our nations guts from the inside out? Was your apathy worth the trade you made?

Tonight I mourn for my brothers on the Wall in Washington, tonight they died again. There are millions of dead men walking around tonight that don’t even know they’re dead yet, are you one of them? I share the blame, I could have fought harder, I could have sounded the alarm, I could have thrown rocks at the son of a bitch if nothing else but I too was asleep. I believed in and cast my faith to the American people, a people who have proven unworthy of keeping the grand republic we inherited through the blood sweat and trials of our fathers and their fathers fathers fathers fathers…as far back as there was a nation called America. YOU gave it away, I gave it away.

Now…what are you and I going to do about it? They taught me in Jungle Evasion and Survival training school that the best time to plan an escape is early in your captivity so you still have the strength and will to carry it out, time plays FOR the captors and works against the prisoners. Are you going to roll over and play possum? Wait till the sun shines Nelly..by and by?

GENERIX

The most vulnerable of the legs which this beast stand on is the media. Oh, yeah, I’ve been hammering these useless pieces of dog crap since 2003 but I’m not done with these weasels yet.

Unless you are blind or have been living in a cave for five years you have seen the press and talking heads thoroughly tattooed to O’Boober’s hip, in lock step and pushing him every yard of the way. This PERSON would not even be recognized let alone elected without the strong voice of the media behind him.

So here’s something we can do, it will take a concentrated effort and may require some small sacrifice but at this time, it’s the only weapon we have.

First you must commit to buying and using ONLY generic products. Write a letter to each network and news show tell them I WILL NOT BUY ANY PRODUCT ADVERTISED ON OR SPONSORING YOUR SHOW, NONE..ZERO. Then write the sponsors and tell them the same thing, make sure they understand the connection between the advertising dollars, their grossly slanted journalism, and YOUR power as a consumer to NOT buy their products thereby cutting off the advertising dollars and the operating funds that pay their salaries.

This applies to automobiles too…if you were going to buy a new Ford, buy instead a year old Ford from a private owner or used car lot PUT NO MONEY IN THE POCKETS OF COMPANIES THAT SPONSOR THIS FIFTH COLUMN REPORTING. The effect will not be immediate but hang in for the long haul and punish the sponsors and dollars that put this un-American slug in office and it WILL have an effect. IT IS VITAL THAT YOU MAINTAIN CORRESPONDENCE WITH THE NETWORKS AND THE SPONSORS SO COUNT ON SPENDING SOME MONEY IN POSTAGE…E MAILS DON’T WORK DON’T WASTE THE ELECTRONS EVEN SENDING E MAILS.

This must start as an organized grassroots movement with the purpose of disabling the liberals “bully pulpit” and putting the newsies on defensive for a change.

We’ll work on the rest once we get this piece started and we have to start somewhere and soon. Are you a warrior or a possum? an American or a “citizen of the greater world?” Your call, I know what I’m going to do GENERIX.

Beansimple said it, what are you going to do now, fight or flee?

and above all
think for yourself and pray for our nation

Whew! That’s just one post out of many. This is the base that John McCain pandered to so heavily during his campaign. But wait, there’s more!

End of White America? by MNDude

Despite the loss, it looks like 60% of white america voted for McCain Palin.

90% of blacks always vote democrat 60% to 80% of hispanic voters will vote democrat (and about 10 million more of them are will soon enter the voting system) And there will always be at least a 30% idiot bleeding heart liberal whites.

We have some large hurdles in the future.

Reply from screaminsunshine

America is now an irretrievable socialist democracy. Sorry. It was great while it lasted.

Still not enough? Let’s throw a little of the Old Time Religion into it:

Lord Have Mercy on Us, For We Have Sinned by P-Marlowe

My sorrow for this country cannot be expressed in words. There are 50 million dead babies who have been disposed of in landfills here in the United States. During the period of 1939 to 1945 hundreds of countries throughougt the world engaged in a war of unprecedented proportions in which Global powers collectively tried as hard as they could to kill as many people as possible and it took six years of dedicated killling, machine gunning, executions, bombings, and nuclear explosions, and they only managed to kill about 10 million people a year throughougt the entire planet.

Since 1973, when Roe v. Wade created a “constitutional right” to kill YOUR OWN CHILDREN, there have been over 50,000,000 murders of unborn children in the United States alone. That is more children that there were people in America at the time of the 1880 Census. That is essentially the same number of people who were killed on all sides in World War II. Effectively we have aborted an entire generation of Americans and our ecomony has only been saved by the influx of young workers from other countries that have flocked in to fill the void caused by the alarmingly decreasing birth rate among native born Americans.

America, Land of the Free and Home of the Brave, is now home to 50,000,000 mothers who have murdered their own children. You have to stop and think about that for a second. Literally we have millions upon millions of voters in this nation who have systematically murdered their own children, 99% for nothing more than economic gain. A new TV, a new car, a bigger house, less responsiblity, inconvienience, whatever. I cannot fathom how it is that God can continue to bless this Country in the face of this national sin.

Although we prohibit most felons from voting in elections, those 50,000,000 murderers have the right to vote and those 50,000,000 aborted babies are without a voice in this matter. Undoubtedly most of those women voted for continuing the holocaust, because to recognize it as a holocaust is to recognize their own complicity in the slaughter.

I think we have reached a turning point in this nation and there is no turning back. We have freely chosen the most pro-abortion candidate in America to be the man who will have the opportunity to shape the culture of this nation for the next generation by appointing federal judges who will uphold the right to murder the unborn on the altar of “privacy”.

What saddens me most is that many people I know who profess to be “Christians” and who go to church more often than I do, and probably are more active in their churches than me, and who teach Sunday School to young children, cast their lots for Obama. When I talk to these people I tell them flat out, that I cannot believe that a practicing Christian could vote for a man with Obama’s record on abortion, yet they make excuses for themselves. “Obama is a good man. Obama has a good heart. Obama will help the downtrodden…. whatever.” Well if God is consitent, then we will soon all be downtrodden when God, in his own righteous judgment, brings his foot down on this nation and crushes it like a grape.

I can only pray that America repents of its national sin. I’m not sure that will stave off the judgment to come, but it might. God said he would spare Sodom if Abraham could find just one righteous man in the city. I’m sure there were a lot of seemingly “good people” in Sodom, but there was nobody righteous, not one.

God’s standards for what is a “good man” are not the same as ours. To us a “good man” is someone who is as good as us. But until we recognize that we are wretched sinners in the sight of God and until we, as a nation, recognize the enormity of the sin which we have committed against God since 1973, we are going to suffer judgment. It doesn’t take a Biblical prophet to figure that out. All it takes is a little Bible reading to know that while God is longsuffering, his judgments are righteous and swift.

Today we must call out the Nation to repentance. America is not the same country it was just a generation ago. We have turned our face from God and we have chosen to trust in the arm of flesh.

May God have mercy on us all.

OK I’ll stop here as I’m sure some of your heads are close to exploding. Next time we’ll drop in for a visit with the Rapture Ready folks. Now there’s where you’ll find the Grade A choice crazies!

Bush goes all delusional again at Republican Governors Association Gala.

President Bush is once again demonstrating how he lives in his own little world that isn’t impacted by things such as facts and reality in general. During a speech at the 2008 Republican Governors Association Gala he made the following pronouncements:

I don’t know about you, but I’m confident we’ll hold the White House in 2008. (Applause.) And I don’t want the next Republican President to be lonely, and that is why we got to take the House, retake the Senate, and make sure our states are governed by Republican governors. (Applause.)

Our ideas are those embraced by the American people. American people want strong national defense and they want the government to protect the people from further attack, and that’s precisely what Republicans will give them. Americans want lower taxes and less government, and it’s precisely what Republicans will give them. Americans want strong, principled leadership, and that is precisely what Republicans will give them.

And so when I say I’m confident, I am so because I understand the mentality of the American people and I understand the mentality of our candidates. And there’s no question in my mind, with your help, 2008 is going to be a great year. (Applause.)

I suppose the above could be written off as standard “rah-rah” team spirit nonsense, but considering how poorly the Republican party is held by much of the public these days it seems a bit… optimistic to state with any certainty that the White House will see a Republican residing in it come 2009. Sure, it’s a possibility as is the possibility that both houses of Congress will revert to Republican control and all the states will elect Republicans, but it doesn’t seem anything close to something one should be confident about. One things for damn sure and that’s that Bush doesn’t understand the mentality of the American people all that well. If he did then I doubt his approval rating would be in the toilet.

Next he talks about Iraq and Afghanistan:

There are two major fronts in this war: one is in Afghanistan and one is in Iraq; and I want to spend a little time on Iraq. First of all, the decision to remove Saddam Hussein was the right decision for world peace and for the security of the American people. (Applause.)

This is utter nonsense. Saddam posed no threat to the United States or, for that matter, to world peace. His army never really recovered from the pounding it took in the first war and his supposed Weapons of Mass Destruction programs were wild fantasies at best. His supposed ties to al Qaeda were fictions and he was barely a threat to his neighboring countries. At worst he was a threat to his own people and as much as they suffered under Saddam’s rule it’s hard to see how they’re faring any better under their current circumstances. We didn’t make things better in Iraq, we made them much worse.

Next Bush ramps up the crazy:

One of the principles by which I have been operating is this: I believe in an Almighty, and I believe a gift of that Almighty to every man, woman and child is freedom. And I believe it is in the interests of the United States of America to free people from disease and hunger and want and tyranny. It is in our interests to make sure that we defeat the ideologues of hate with an ideology that has worked throughout the centuries. I believe 50 years from now, people will look back at this period of time, and say, thank God the United States of America did not lose its faith in the transformative power of liberty to bring the peace we want for our children and our grandchildren. (Applause.)

It’s hard to believe anyone could still hold such a rosy assessment of the Iraq war and Bush really shows just how batshit crazy he is with the above statement. It doesn’t help that his actions don’t match up to his rhetoric. For all his talk of freedom from disease and hunger the handful of aid programs he’s put forth are rife with restrictions on how that money can be used.

For example: A bill to provide help to Africa in combating AIDS that’s making its way through Congress would require a third of the $30 billion over five years to be devoted to abstinence-only education and Republicans are upset over a provision added by Democrats that would include Family Planning services because it might mean some money being used to provide abortions or hand out condoms. Sure, they’re willing to help so long as you don’t do anything they don’t approve of regardless of how stupid our reasoning is.

Moving on to the Protect America act which recently expired Bush has this to say:

And that is why we worked with the United States Congress last summer to pass the Protect America Act. And the Congress passed the act, giving our professionals the tools they need. The problem is, the act expired recently, and yet to—the threat to America has not expired. And so now we’re in a debate about whether or not we ought to pass a good piece of legislation necessary to protect the American people.

More nonsense. Yes, the act expired and good riddance to it as well. The argument that it leaves us vulnerable is bullshit. First off the law won’t actually cease to apply until sometime in August, but even if it had suddenly gone away there’s still plenty of authority for wiretaps using the previous FISA rules. It just means the government would have to get a legal warrant to wiretap. It doesn’t even have to do it ahead of time as the old FISA law allowed for applying for a warrant after you had already established a wiretap. The problem for Bush and his cronies is that requiring a wiretap means there will be scrutiny of what they’re up to and even though FISA almost never turns down a wiretap request the fact that someone has oversight just drives Bush right up the wall.

Then there’s the telephone companies that broke the law in participating with the Bush Administration:

And here’s the crux of the problem: Companies that were believed to have helped us protect America from attack are now being sued for billions of dollars. That’s wrong, it’s a mistake, and the United States Congress needs to give those companies liability protection. And let me tell you why.

First, it is not fair to treat these companies this way. Our government told them that their participation was necessary in order to protect us from further attack. And we asked them—and when we asked them to make those protections, we told them it was legal to do so. And I firmly believe it is legal for them to help us protect the American people. And now they’re getting sued. What’s more important, lawyers or protecting the United States of America from further attack? (Applause.)

Let’s rephrase that last question to what Bush really means: “What’s more important, the rule of law or me being able to do whatever the fuck I want without anyone else knowing about it?” Bush may have thought his request to the telecos was legal, but he was wrong. The only company to recognize that fact was Qwest. Everyone else who broke the law deserves whatever the fuck they’ve got coming to them and, for that matter, whoever the fuck told the companies that it was legal needs to be brought up on charges as well.

Secondly, these lawsuits would require disclosure of information which would make it harder to protect the country. These trial—if these cases go to trial, these companies will have to defend themselves. And they’ll be asked all kinds of questions about the tactics they have used to help protect our country. It makes no sense to reveal our secrets to the enemy.

Again, an SEB Translation: “If these cases go to trail then you’ll all be able to see how I was shredding your civil rights and the Constitution. I can’t control the message if you guys know the truth.”

Thirdly, and finally, these—without law, without liability protection for a job that we asked them to do in service to the United States of America, it will make it harder to convince companies to participate in the future. If you’ve done something that you think is perfectly legal, and all of a sudden you’re facing billions of dollars of lawsuits, it is going to be hard to provide with credibility assurances that you can go forward.

Gee, here’s an idea: DON’T FUCKING ASK COMPANIES TO BREAK THE LAW.

Need more proof he’s fucking nuts? How’s this:

Our domestic agenda is based upon this simple principle: We trust the American people, and we will empower them to make the right decisions for their families. We trust in the collective wisdom of the American citizenry. On health, we trust patients to make their own decisions, and we empower them with HSAs and AHPs, all aimed at making sure health care decisions are made between patients and doctors, not by bureaucrats here in Washington, D.C.

If he trusted the American people so much then he wouldn’t need to be so fucking secretive about everything his Administration does, but he’s lying. He doesn’t trust in the collective wisdom of the American citizenry at all. He wants to spy on you without oversight not just to keep you safe, which I’m sure is one of the things he believes he’d accomplish, but also for political expediency. If you think this man isn’t abusing the domestic spying programs he’s put into place then I’ve got a bridge to sell you.

That’s about all I can stand to read through at this point, but I think it’s more than enough to show the man isn’t living in the same reality as the rest of us. It’s just a shame we have to sit and wait out the rest of his term in office before we can put this period behind us and hopefully get the country back on the right track.

WingNutDaily’s Janet Folger puts the “crazy” in “batshit crazy.”

Fundies would be a lot of fun if they didn’t have so much political clout these days. You’d be hard pressed to find a more paranoid bunch of whiney crybabies than the bunch that pump out WorldNetDaily and one of the best examples is Janet Folger and her latest column titled Letter from a future prisoner:

Nov. 20, 2010

To the Resistance:

I’m writing this letter from prison, where I’ve been since the beginning of 2010. Since Hillary was elected in ‘08, Christian persecution in America has gotten even worse than we predicted.

The opening here alone is pretty laughable. We start right off with the hilarious suggestion that Christians are somehow being persecuted when they compose upwards of 76% of the population. Note for you math impaired Christians out there, that means you make up over two-thirds of the population, also known as a solid majority. You don’t know what it means to be persecuted and you probably never will unless you do something stupid like immigrate to Saudi Arabia. To go on and suggest that Christians in general, and Janet Folger in particular, will be rounded up and tossed into prison if Hillary Clinton is elected should bring tears of laughter to your eyes if it weren’t for the fact that some idiots out there actually believe that crap.

When the so-called “Fairness Doctrine” was signed into law, my radio program was yanked off the air along with all the others that dared discuss moral issues on Christian radio. The networks just couldn’t bring themselves to air a pro-abortion program or one that advocates the homosexual agenda for the government mandated “balance” because broadcasting lies went against their basic beliefs – I don’t blame them.

We knew “Thought Crimes” was in danger of becoming law back when it passed Congress in 2007, but thankfully, President Bush kept his promise to veto it. But, tragically, Hillary signed that most dangerous bill in America – ushering in the criminalization of Christianity. And now, even my book, “The Criminalization of Christianity,” has been banned as “hate speech” just as I predicted when I wrote it back in 2005.

So what happened to Congress when Hillary was elected? What happened to the very much right-leaning Supreme Court? Did she suddenly disband both of them or is Janet Folger seriously suggesting that Hillary is enough of a smooth talker that she convinced both of these entities to ignore the Constitution and allow these laws to be put into place? This is persecution delusion at its best and has no basis in reality, but that won’t stop Ms. Folger from running with it as far as she can.

When the “Employment Non-Discrimination Act” (“Thought Crimes” for the Workplace) became law, businesses and ministries were targeted by homosexual activists and were forced to close when they wouldn’t comply with a law forcing them to hire those opposed to their beliefs on moral issues.

When they canceled my program, banned my book and targeted my ministry, I knew it was only a matter of time before I’d be forced into “prison ministry” against my will. Unfortunately for our nation, that ministry is growing fast. A homeschooling mom was assigned the cell next to me. I try to comfort her, but she cries constantly at the thought of her kids being raised in government foster care.

When homeschooling is a crime only outlaws will homeschool! Oh the horror of it all!

So what the fuck is this all about anyway? Well aside from being an amusing bit of scare-monger tactics aimed at the most credulous of the True Believers™ out there, it turns out this screed is an attempt to drum up support for Ms. Folger’s Presidental candidate of choice:

There was a tier-one candidate that stood for our goals of life and marriage – that man was Gov. Mike Huckabee. Had we nominated Huckabee to run against Hillary, the stark difference between the two would have brought voters out in droves. And we never would have seen the Supreme Court appointments of Charles Schumer and Diane Feinstein. If only there were a way to go back in time to change … I’ve gotta go. The guard spotted me writing again.

Give me a fucking break. This dreck is so pathetic it’s a wonder anyone can manage to swallow it, but more than a few people do despite the need to completely ignore reality in order to buy into it. Ms. Folger would be amusing if her audience didn’t take her so seriously, alas they do and they’re the ones we largely have to thank for the idiot President the country is currently suffering under.
