The night before a mid-term Christmas

santa-sleigh_1780995c

‘Twas the night before mid-terms, when all through the Senate,

The Democrats were stirring, wondering, “can we win it?”

The stockings were hung by the chimney with care,

Hoping that lobbyists would fill them up there.

The representatives were nestled all snug in their beds,

While visions of voters danced in their heads,

And Michelle in her nightgown and I in my cap,

Had just settled our brains for a long winter’s nap.

When out on the lawn there arose such a clatter,

I thought another intruder had jumped the fence, for that matter.

Away to the window I flew in a blur,

Yelled for the secret service, and wondered where they were.

The moon on the breast of the new fallen snow,

Gave the lustre of mid-day to objects below;

When, to what to my wondering eyes should appear,

But a republican sleigh, they’re going to get me, oh dear!

With a little old driver, curly hair and not tall,

I knew in a moment it must be Rand Paul.

More rapid than filibusters the politicians they came,

And he whistled, and pontificated, and called them by name:

now Christie, now Bush, now Jindal and Perry

On Rubio, on Ryan, of your gaffes be wary,

“To the top of the house, to the top of the Senate!

Now campaign, campaign, we’ll be there in a minute!”

As dry chad before the Florida winds fly,

We’re running for president, we’ll make the dems cry

So to the top of the mid-terms the republicans flew,

With the sleigh full of victories – and some minorities, too.

And then MSNBC I heard on the news

They cried and they cried, “What next? Ted Cruz?”

As I drew in my head, and was turning around,

McConnell took Kentucky, new sheriff in town,

A victory speech he gave, with his wife looking fancy,

“Take a seat, Harry Reed, go visit with Nancy”

A bundle of issues was flung on his back,

And he looked like an old white dude, coal dust on his back,

His eyes – how they twinkled! his dimples how merry,

“Just wait till I take over the Senate, young Barry”

His droll little mouth was drawn up like a bow,

“You’ve had it your own way too long, you know”

With the reigns of the senate held tight in his teeth,

“We’ll change your climate, commander-in-chief”

Now you want to sit down, have a bourbon with Mitch?

The times have changed, no more bait and switch,

Your term is corrupt, a crooked administration,

Hope and change is gone, it’s left the station.

A wink of his eye and a twist of his head

Soon let me know, I’m a lame duck with dread.

And gathering the Senate, he went straight to his work,

Filled my stockings with issues, probably called me a jerk,

And laying his finger aside of his nose.

He said, “You’ve got a pen and a phone, we’ll see how that goes.”

He sprung to the senate, to his colleagues gave a shout,

“I’m not sure what we can do, but we’ll see the man out,”

But I heard him exclaim, not allaying my fears,

Happy Christmas to all, except these last two years.

It’s gettin crazy out there folks.

Too smart for his own good, but not yours?

Look if we were smarter none of this would be a big deal. Or so says Obamacare’s chief architect Jonathan Gruber, Ph.D. See, he was speaking to a room full of intellects when he said the American voter is so dumb the bill was written in such a way as to get it past them. Ain’t his fault you’re dumb.

 

What the f*&%ing, f*&^!

What the f*&%ing, f*&^!

F*#@ing Spectacular

NBC shows Patriots QB Tom Brady shouting the F word on live TV. Brady’s defense, “It their problem, not mine. This is football not church.” Honestly, how the f*&% can you argue with that?

Arrest-related deaths

handcuffs

 

From the Department of Justice (DOJ) website, between 2003 and 2009, there were a total of 4,813 deaths reported to the DOJ as arrest-related deaths. Of those, about 6 in 10 were classified as homicide by law enforcement personnel. During this time, the FBI estimated that nearly 98 million arrests were made in the United States. Of the number of deaths:

White non-Hispanic         2026

Black non-Hispanic           1529

Hispanic                              949

Other                                   150

Unknown                            159

 

 

Also, of reported arrest-related deaths, 45% of decedents allegedly engaged in assault either immediately prior to or during the process of arrest. No criminal charges were intended to be filed against 163 (3%) persons who died during the process of arrest. Among arrest-related deaths attributed to homicide, 75% of decedents allegedly engaged in violent offenses.

 

Below is the link to the stats.

I’ve found no stats on the race of the arresting officers.

You can make your own conclusions. One conclusion I’ve come to is that, like most people, I’ve been watching the news on this (Fox, CNN, CBS, ABC, NBC) haven’t heard a single arrest-related death statistic. Not that stats tell the whole story, but it’s a place to start.

Podcast Season 2 Episode 73: Rotten to the core!

Wow. Just wow. A police officer chokes a man to death for selling “loosies” or single cigarettes, it’s caught on film, from beginning to end mind you, and no charges are brought against the officer. The Big Apple has worms and is need of treatment. Wanna know what we think?

Getting Cheaper

Getting Cheaper

Shut up and take my money!

The $2 threshold for gas has been broken. Without Kroger points, coupons, or any sales you can buy gas for less than $2 a gallon at several stations in Oklahoma. Not typical though as a price war has broken out there. $2.50ish seems to be national average. Thank you Obama!

 

 

 

Shut up Ted!

Shut up Ted!

Shut up and keep my gov’t open!

The Speaker of the House is trying desperately to ward off a government shut down. The problem? The loudest advocates are in his own party and may have more clout than him. Lookin at you Ted Cruz.

 

 

 

Is this yours?

Is this yours?

SHUT UP!

A large number of human brains have disappeared from a University of Texas Lab. In related news renowned physicist Steven Hawking says the moment of The Singularity, when mankind can transfer his being into a machine, will be the end of the world for humans. So we got that going for us.

Trying to save their store.

Trying to save their store.

We’ll teach those buildings about racism!

No indictment for the officer who shot and killed Michael Brown. In perfectly logical retaliation, the black community of Ferguson burns the business of innocent, law abiding citizens, robs the liquor store and ransacks the town. Genius, pure genius. Just proves they never wanted justice in the first place, just vengeance. How’s that working out fellas? Nothing but turkeys in Ferguson.

 

You're not helping bro!

You’re not helping bro!

We’ll teach those executive orders a thing or two!

Senator Ted Cruz goes batshit crazy over Obama’s executive order granting amnesty to illegal immigrants. He says they, meaning republicans, will now block every cabinet appointment made by Obama in retaliation. Nice one Ted, that will fix immigration. Wouldn’t it have been easier to burn your chair in the Senate? Turkey

 

Wrong finger sir.

Wrong finger sir.

Speaking of immigration…

It’s not uncommon for second term presidents to do these types of things once they get past the mid-term election; especially if the election didn’t go their way. But can this move by Obama be described as anything other than a middle finger to the new republican controlled senate? The exec order didn’t fix immigration either, by the way. Turkey  – Mr President.

All this and more. Tune in as Tony mangles American history because the White House told him to do it. Turkey.

Oil, oil, everwhere oil.

Except where she needs it. Democratic Louisana Senator Mary Landrieu whores herself to the Keystone XL Pipeline in hopes of keeping her seat in the runoff election early December. She promised Repubs she had the votes from her side to get the bill passed. Whoops. Senate Dems block the pipeline bill by a narrow margin, thus ending any chance Mary had of remaining in the Senate. C Ya Mare!

 

The jokes just write themselves here.

A bridesmaid no more.

80 year old Charles Manson is getting married. A 20 something year old woman, who goes by the name Star (of course she does) has been visiting the maniac murderer for years and has decided to take him as a husband. Sorry Chuck, court rules no conjugals.

And the Obamacare bill’s chief architect explains in detail how the administration had to, I say had to, misrepresent the bill in debates and in writing so it could pass.

Kim Kardashian breaks the internet by posting pics from her latest photo shoot. She shows off her best asset on the cover. In the pages she shows off her 2nd and 3rd best assets.  Yeah, a full frontal. And her guidance counselor said she’d never amount to anything.

 

 

 

 

Amen brother

Amen brother

We’ve been Gruber’d

Herr Gruber gives a detailed account on how the Obama administration counted on and then blamed the, and I quote, “stupidity of the American voter” in order to get the health care reform act through congress. He goes on to offer transparency is ridiculous and was never going to be a thing inside O’s White House.

 

Well I’m out folks. Take me home cause I’ve seen enough to know I’ve seen too much.
