Equal Pay Day – Did you know there was such a thing? Well, there is and it was this past Tuesday, April 4th. This event is to recognize the inequity of pay for the ladies who work outside the home. And since 2013 Senator Elizabeth “Pocahontas” Warren has been in the forefront on this matter, even going so far last year as to call it a “National Day of Embarrassment” while pontificating on the Senate floor. This year though, Pocahontas was uncharacteristically mum on the matter. This woman has never been mum about anything in her life. Might it had anything to do with the fact that also on Tuesday (how ‘bout that for timing) it was revealed that the women working for our “Native-American” senator earn just 71% of what the men make? Anyone know the Powhatan Indian word for “two-faced?” Hmmm?
Abortion – Since the highly controversial Roe v. Wade decision of 1973 there have been over 59.3 million abortions in the US. As near as I can find, it appears less than 1% of those US abortions were for rape/incest victims. Sadly 30% have been for black babies. This year alone, Planned Parenthood has performed over 86,000 abortions, on our dime. I understand this is a “hot” topic and some women just don’t want to be told what to do with their bodies, not unlike my visceral disdain of having to pay for those abortions! What I really wonder though, how many of those 59 million aborted babies included the next doctor who had the cure for cancer; or possibly were the next Albert Einstein, Clara Barton, Babe Ruth, Bill Gates, Martin Luther King, etc. Hmmm?
Syria Gas Attack – By now you have all seen those horrific pictures of mostly women and children being chemically annihilated in the Idlib province of Syria by the regime of that SOB President Bashar al-Assad. They were so horrible that even President Trump decided to change his mind and enter into the fray with Syria…Russia be damned. At the time of this writing, the Pentagon is drawing up plans for the elimination of the viscous dictator responsible for the deaths of 500,000 people, leaving millions homeless, and roughly 13.5 million to flee their homeland. Surely there will be a special place in Hell for this ogre, right next to the likes of Hitler, Stalin, Mao, and Hillary Clinton. And after seeing those pictures, I can’t say I blame President Trump for wanting the removal of Assad, and his skinny oblong head on a post. Having said all that, we done did that. In recent years we removed Muammar Kadafi from Libya and Saddam Hussein from Iraq. And how has that worked out for us? Hmmm? (I have no answers either and will not criticize Trump either way.)
Susan Rice – The Obama National Security Adviser (married to ABC executive producer Ian Cameron) has now been caught lying to us three times that I am aware. (Four if you go back to the Clinton Whitehouse years – yes, she worked there too – explains a lot about her propensity for telling falsehoods!) She went on the Sunday morning talk circus…er circuit to inform everyone that the Benghazi massacre was a result of a video; then followed up that whopper by stating Sargent Beau Bergdahl was a hero captured on the battlefield rather than the deserter we later found out (remember that odd press conference when Obama had his hands all over Bergdahl’s mother?); and now her denying that she was the person who unmasked Trump associates conversations with foreign nationals, then later admitting she did. (After Don Lemon of CNN prudishly told everyone it was Fake News) Is this woman evil, corrupt, or just a pathological liar? How many times is she allowed to lie to us before we just banish her from government or throw her butt in jail? Why does the media interview her anymore? Hmmm?
Congress – if you have read my blog before, you would know this is a favored target. Have you ever noticed, when one of our elites come out to a podium to talk to the great unwashed (that would be us), they have a group of 10-15 of their peeps stand behind them to nod their pin-heads in unison? House Speaker Paul Ryan blessed the ravenous media today by coming out to pontificate, although for the life of me, I can’t remember about what. When He decided that He Himself was done telling us what we needed to know, He and His flock exited stage left in unison. If one of them would have tripped all of them would have all gone down in one big heap.
And are you ready to barf if you hear them use the words, “comprehensive,” “bi-partisan,” or “my good friend from the other side of the aisle” one more time? They use those words in every press conference! All empty words to kick the can down the road again, their favorite pastime on our dime. John McCain is a master at this.
Now Chucklehead Schumer and the gang have their panties in a wad because the GOP is going to use the “nuclear option” to stop their filibuster and ram Justice Neil Gorsuch down their gullets to fill the empty seat in the Supreme Court. (The same guy they all voted on unanimously in 2006 for the 10th Judicial Circuit!) All this shrieking after they had been warned for weeks. Among many Congressional tweets, Illinois senior rocket scientist and part-time senator Dick Durbin bawled in his tweet, “Sen McConnell is now poised to abolish this longstanding rule to achieve his partisan goal. He alone is responsible for this historic change.” Hey Dick, where were you and your clown posse four years ago when Hapless Harry Reid enacted the same “nuclear option” on the GOP to derail a filibuster against some of Obama’s judicial choices? Hmmm?
Obviously, I could go on with this forever as my head is full of this stuff. (I’d love to blog more about the IRS…but am afraid to – is this a great country or what?) But my main squeeze and primary admirer has said I get too windy sometimes and she doesn’t care for so many political polemics. On the other hand, my nephew complains when I write blues reviews or about my dog’s trips. Many of the folks that have complimented me on this blog weren’t even aware there are five other pages filled with other points of interest in case they didn’t like the polemics. So, I’ll just wrap this up on word number 1,099.
