Who's surprised? Part the Infinity.


Florida man instructs his lackeys in the House to shut down and defund the government so that he won't face the consequences of his 91 criminal indictments.

Florida man is not interested in the lives or well-being of the American people. Florida man is interested only in his criminally indicted large posterior. The hell with how the government shutdown will affect millions and millions of Americans.

Florida man is a psychopath and malignant narcissist.

Don't be like Florida man.

The Government won't shut down. Only "Discretionary" spending will cease. :)

Republicans are taking orders from Florida man to defund law enforcement so all investigations of his criminality will stop.

I wish someone would make the orange curse go away.

Les Carpenter said...

Get ready. Soon the the believers in the now reified Big Lie will be firing rounds in the halls of congress and claiming their god tRump has been commanded by God to reek havoc on our system of government.

What a bunch of delusionals led by an ass.

I thought you'd be all for "defunding the police". Or is only the half that enforces laws against Democrats that you wish to defund?

Every tyrant equates himself with the "country".

Shaw Kenawe said...


I've never advocated defunding the police. And it's never been a topic on my blog.

You need to get your hallucinations under control.

-FJ thought WRONG again. Nobody's surprised.
The Right arrogantly presumes to know what we think, yet ignore everything we say.
All they know is what they are told by Trump and their Ministry of (un)Truth.
The radical Right lives in a world of absolute certainty, as long it aligns with their Malevolent Messiah's Holy Word.

Does FJ and his stable of sock puppets EVER get it right? Seems unlikely given his conspiratorial delusions.

-FJ the Dangerous and Extreme MAGA Jew said...

Yep, that's me. Mr. Wrongthink. Polling indicates that 71% of Americans believe the country to be heading down the wrong track. I agree with them. That leaves you "elites" continuing to confidently head down that track.

btw - The light at the end of the tunnel? That's another train.

Let's at least be honest about the coming "government shutdown".

First, like all the others, this one is a made up crisis precipitated by an inability of the party in power to effectively govern.

Second, each and every "government shutdown" we have seen in the US has happened when the GOP is been in control of the House.

Third, no money is ever saved by a shutdown, rather, we actually spend more money to restart the government [interest on back pay for example] once eevreyone comes back to work.


The GOP, wasting money because they cannot effectively govern, is not the party of fiscal sanity.

The GOP cannot be trusted to hold a majority in the US House of Representatives because they have shown, through both repeated shutdowns and their inability to even get a deal in their party on defense spending, that they are incapable of exercising good government.

Finally, the general lack of GOP leaders to even meet with the President of Ukraine, fund our defense, move the nominations of over 300 US Military officers along and their constant attacks on the quality of the US forces shows they are not serious in standing up for democracy around the world or in supporting the US armed forces.

No fiscal sanity, no defense policy.

Why would anyone vote for the current GOP?

Les Carpenter said...

If you are able to come up with a logical answer to your closing guestion Dave please let us know because i sure as hell cannot come up with a single answer as to why anyone paying attention would vote gop at any level at this point in our history. They are useless ineffective sheeple loyal to a failed political and governing ideology that tRump turned on its head and took on the path to White and Christian nationalism.

Dave Dubya said...

Dave and Les,
Why would anyone vote for the current GOP?
Two words:
White fright.

I believe the reason humans vote for the current GOP is tribal. The current GOP hates the same people they hate. The current GOP supports bans on the things the GOP membership fear.

People of Color
Women in positions of power
I know I said LGBTQA+ but the current arguments against Transgendered children are the same freaking arguments used against Marriage Equality and the fight for LGBTQA+ civil rights. This is why it gets another talking point.
Climate Change

Everything I view as valuable the GOP sees as attacks against their Christian-centric "We are protected but not limited by the law while the heathens are limited but not protected by the law. Also we get to tell everyone else how to believe."

Once a person is in the Christian nationalist/evangelical bubble it's darn near impossible to get them out. As a cult survivor I can attest to how seductive being encased can be. It took me getting the crap beat out of me more than once for me to wake up and take the next opportunity to get out (a thrilling tale of true love, a knight, and a sort-of happily ever after).

How do folks ensure those in the bubble stay in the bubble? Well, church happens. One doesn't have friends outside the church, one doesn't read books not recommended by the pastor, one votes as the pastor instructs because they've risked it all to view the 'worldly' events and know what's best for their flock.

And if one turns their brain off or never engaged it fully to begin with then the sheep keep voting against their better interests, held in place by their pastor and a network of lies.

If I wrote this as a book no publisher would touch it because it's just so unbelievable. That said, I used to believe humans would run from the plague but then COVID happened (is still happening) and I had to lower my expectations.

Dave Miller said...

Sassy Grey... someone has written the book... Jon Ward. Ward, who grew deep in the movement does a spectacular of exposing much of what your comment describes.

Testimony is one of the best books I've read this year.
