Here's some STUPID for breakfast, lunch, and dinner:


Kansas Secretary of State Kris Kobach, a leader in the anti-immigrant movement, said during his Sunday radio program that it’s possible that a Hispanic majority in the U.S. could conduct an “ethnic cleansing.” 

 Kobach made his remarks in response to a caller who asked, “What happens, if you know your history, when one culture or one race or one religion overwhelms another culture or race?”


“By ignoring the will of the American people, President Obama has cemented his legacy of lawlessness and squandered what little credibility he had left," Boehner said in a statement on Thursday.

To:   John Boehner                         From:  American people

Re:   Will of the American people

We overwhelmingly supported and asked for background checks and minimum wage increase legislation.  You ignored us.  Are you, therefore, lawless?  Does the "will of the American people" only count when your party says it does?

We call bullpuckey on your silly tantrum.


House Republicans just passed a bill forbidding scientists from advising the EPA on their own research 

The "reform" measure makes room for industry-funded experts on the EPA's advisory board

"Speaking on the House floor Tuesday, Rep. Jim McGovern, D-Mass., summed up what was going on: “I get it, you don’t like science,” he told bill sponsor Rep. Chris Stewart, R-Utah. “And you don’t like science that interferes with the interests of your corporate clients. But we need science to protect public health and the environment.” 

 The House, alas, is staying the course, voting this week on two other bills aimed at impeding the EPA, including one that prevents the agency from relying on what it calls “secret science” in crafting its regulations — but which in reality, opponents argue, would effectively block the EPA from adopting any new rules to protect public health. The trio, wrote Rep. Eddie Bernice Johnson, D-Texas, in an editorial for the Hill, represents “the culmination of one of the most anti-science and anti-health campaigns I’ve witnessed in my 22 years as a member of Congress.” The White House has threatened to veto all three." 

And here's some dessert to go with the STUPID for lunch and dinner:

Soon-To-Be Nevada Speaker Said Democrats Are The “Master” Of The “Simple Minded Darkies” 

"One of the results of the GOP ‘wave’ during the recent midterm elections was that a number of state legislatures flipped over to Republican majorities.


[Ira Hansen, Nevada's new conservative Speaker of the House] "...wrote that blacks are not grateful enough to white people for ending slavery. “The lack of gratitude and the deliberate ignoring of white history in relation to eliminating slavery is a disgrace that Negro leaders should own up to.” Of course, Hansen didn’t limit his bigotry to blacks during his column’s history. Hispanics and Latinos were targeted quite a bit as Hansen constantly complained about gang violence and laid the blame on the Latino community. He also claimed, without any evidence, that an increase in Hispanics at a high school was causing more tuberculosis cases in the area. As far as women, Hansen blamed the “women’s liberation movement” on society’s ills." 

This is how the TeaPublicans reach out to women and minorities -- by insulting them.

Watch this space for more STUPID for breakfast, lunch, and dinner.

Yessir... that is the incoming speaker of the house for my state of Nevada...

He also slammed Israel, and Christians in his "horrific" remarks.

Our Gov, a moderate pro choice, pro equal marriage republican has come out strong against him.

I should mention that our Gov would make a great GOP VP pick, except the base would DQ him for his above views...

To the people out there that keep saying "Both sides do it", let's see some breakfast, lunch, dinner, and dessert stupid from the Democrats. It's time to put up or shut up.

Always having an opinion takes energy away from my doing something. Energy is finite.

“By ignoring the will of the American people, President Obama has cemented his legacy of lawlessness and squandered what little credibility he had left," Boehner said

This is unforgivable. Boehner isn't some drooling ignoramus like Gohmert or Palin. He knows better. He has to be aware that Obama's actions are not unlawful. He's being deliberately dishonest and whipping up the base.

In an earlier thread somebody raised the point that illegal aliens who sign up for legal status would be giving the government information which a Republican administration could later use against them. Well, that's going to be a hell of an incentive for Latino US citizens (some of whom have relatives who are illegals) to finally register to vote in large numbers and make damn sure there never is another Republican administration, don't you think?

The effect will be cemented by the coming torrential diarrhea of Republican hysterics trashing Latinos as a people and culture (not just illegal aliens, an important distinction), of which Kobach's lurid remarks are a good example. Keep ranting, idiots, and watch Texas slip away from you in the Electoral College.

On anthropogenic global warming, the right wing has now reached the point of refusing to look through Galileo's telescope because they just know Jupiter can't have moons, since that would clash with the geocentric solar system. No wonder almost all scientists who express a political preference are Democrats. Well, the moons of Jupiter still exist even if you refuse to look at them, and so does anthropogenic global warming.

The new troglodyte Senate majority hasn't even officially taken its seats yet and Teh Crayzee has already reached hurricane force. For the next two years there's going to be more of this insanity than a hundred blogs could keep track of.

PS: If this is what's on the menu for all three meals for the next two years, I'm going on a hunger strike.

In the interest of “fair and balanced” (and why we always allow the fox to eat our chickens), I should mention other analogues of stupidity:

Cupidity – especially dolts and dimwits with a “D” who abandoned president, platform and party with a “P” and gave voters nothing worthy of support. The cupidly stupid deserve what they got.

Torpidity – especially the 63.7% who ignored the midterm elections and failed to vote. The torpidly stupid deserve what they got.

Timidity – those who go limp and lame in the face of bullies, punks, provocateurs, self-appointed despots, and martinets. The timidly stupid deserve what they got.

All told: Stupidity, Cupidity, Torpidity and Timidity - The Four Remorses of the Apocalypse.

True KP, and there is always something to do.

When there isn't go to the gym, or have a beer... Gym is recommended of course.

I've already started Infidel753.

I don't like drone noises too much either. The trio of Ted, Louie, and Boner will be interesting NOT!
