You ain't a woman.

But you wish you were.

You're an old queen.

And that's creepy.

 You ain't a patriot. You fly the Gadsden, a military flag that had no country.

You and your avatar are TEA Baggers. That is creepy.

Since when does a drunken hillbilly read Ann Rand?

The Dow is down over 430, 445 points. Go baby! Make the TEAS happy!

Are you happy we are failing you seditious freak?

 

Who is it you want to surrender to?

    Dunning-Krugar!

    Don’t trust anyone who is smarter than yourself, especially if facts are involved. Listen to El
    Rush-Bo. Don’t trust what is taught in schools either, it is leftist socialist
    communistic crap! That crap comes from the government, so it has to be evil. But
    who is selling it to the government????? 'sup with dat?

    I did not know the Fed was a Government, but I agree all
    governments are overbearing, in fact a king would say that too. We need a king
    and abolish civil government that people can mess up. If we don’t like what the
    king does or says, he can lop off our heads.

    As for sand in the fuel system, would it not be more effective if it was in the oil pan? A king would go for the oil pan so you know they are smarter.

    Does anybody know about the textbooks and who decides what
    is taught in school? Anybody? Who forms public opinion at the textbook level?
    Certainly not a king.

    Down we go the slippery slope, mua-ha-ha-ha-haaa!

    Oh my! My portfolio is going down the drain. What will I do?
    My modest wealth and savings for my future is going away. Who will have it?
    What will my future be? Who cares about the country, what about ME? I need financial
    security, I need economic stability, I need hope! I need a big bunch of money to live securely.

    Oh great king, bring us back to the gates of Camelot. Comfort us with the balm of bag! Forge thy coin that shall not wither and work me like a borrowed mule so I may bawl through the dark night of the soul. Bring us, oh great and powerful king out of this pinch of chaos. Bring us political perfection and peace so my soul may have a morsel
    of bread to be nourished with. Let not thy electricity fail, nor thy freezer
    servant, nor thy fridge servant so we may have food in time of need for I freaketh-out
    in much uncertainty and my gut-bag yearneth to run down my leg. Give your subjects oh great king the hope of
    thy terrible goodness so the world may sup whirled peas from thy blackened
    kettle forged on hell’s coals. Oh come to us great king in our moment of great
    need and tell us which side our bread was once buttered on! Give me gas for my ford, O great lord and king
    and let me sleep in it without taxes so I may pay tribute to your goodness in
    all that my being can muster. Let not the radio fail, nor the battery leak so I
    may hear thy voice, for thou hast a voice that is smooth and slicker than okra
    on a spoon, and that I may give ear to obedience at thy voice and thy precepts that
    are for my bony carcass. Let not the commonwealths fail that are under thy scepter
    and give us a jolly good show at the Olympics and the following G-8 where we
    may glorify you in all your dominion throughout the world, the world about to
    end, Amen.

    Everything you know is wrong.

    You obviously don't have kids.

    Now go and get those meds you've run out of, and convince yourself some more that you have a purpose and reason to exist.

      The Perfect Storm

      America is becoming a plutocracy

      More and more wealth in fewer and fewer hands, secret campaign donations: It's a perfect storm

      By Robert Reich

      It’s a perfect storm. And I’m not talking about the Democrats. I’m talking about our system of democratic capitalism.

      First, income in America is now more concentrated in fewer hands than it’s been in 80 years. Almost a quarter of total income generated in the United States is going to the top 1 percent of Americans.

      The top one-tenth of 1 percent of Americans now earn as much as the bottom 120 million of us.

      Who are these people? With the exception of a few entrepreneurs like Bill Gates, they’re top executives of big corporations and Wall Street, hedge-fund managers, and private equity managers. They include the Koch brothers, whose wealth increased by billions last year and who are now funding Tea Party candidates across the nation.

      Which gets us to the second part of the perfect storm. A relatively few Americans are buying our democracy as never before. And they’re doing it completely in secret...

      (Couldn't you at least tell us who nomoreliblabcon is?)

      Jarasan says, "...that video is for setting the record straight on the leftist crap taught in public schools for the past 40 years."

      Jimmy4164 replies, "Oh, I see ... and who is (are) 'nomoreliblabcon' ??  I guess that question slipped your mind."

      I hope everyone clicks on "nomoreliblabcon" while viewing Jarasan's video at YouTube...

      Whether Jarasan agrees with my sources or not, at least I can point to and name them!

      Jarasan also forgot about John Perkins on Corporatocracy...

        You obviously have the stupid gene because if you read your textbooks and looked into historical details, you would not be stupid.

        And you had CHILDREN???

        They let you breed stupid seed? How are you going to feed them? Cloth or house them? What happens when your parents lose the house? Where will you go? Will there be canned peaches for you?

        Would you resort to cannibalism?

        Think: Self Preservation

         That is the focus of the chaos

              and that is your role.

          OK, I accept that.

          And you are?  Smart? Enlightened? Brilliant?  All knowing?

          As far as cannibalism no,  but some roof hares definitely on the menu,  grilled marinated in a curry maringo sauce.

          Self preservation is your focus, not mine.

          Make sure you have plenty of your meds on hand and everything will be OK.  Is it hormonal?  Yeast?

            Your messiah said if we didn't raise the debt ceiling the Dow would plunge.

            The idiots raised it and it's plunging anyway.

            Are you gonna be right behind him sniffing his ass all the way to perdition?

                  Look Here seekers,
                  From over the sea - here is a fresh perspective:

                  http://www.guardian.co.uk/commentisfree/2011/aug/01/britain-resist-tea-party-thinking

                  You see they have a bit of an advantage because of their
                  standards of civil order. “Our senior civil service prides itself on
                  drawing on the finest Oxbridge minds because they should be trained in
                  evidence-based thinking.”   Boy, it sure is nice when someone can put in words what is going on.

                  The English actually still use evidenced – based thinking. What a bunch of maroons. Could that be yet
                  another reason Murdoch was handed his hat? Did he not know that not towing the
                  line on global warming could have had such an effect on his own punny
                  empire? Very simply put, Murdoch was not PC on many levels. He is unacceptable. So is FOX.

                  The TEAs are not PC. They are being handed their hats. They are,… undesireable. They are,... the Malcontent Party.

                  This is a short article and is well written.   

                  “The politics of miasma, where words matter more than facts
                  and actions, lets the Tea Party demand the impossible – debt reduction with tax
                  cuts, spending cuts without touching the gargantuan defense budget.” How does this woman do that? In one sentence she slays the topic. How is it she can see so clearly and state so succinctly what we ourselves cannot?

                  I say we should rethink our relationship to the Crown  (c/o pretty Polly) and
                  give it all back. Let the Crown manage our affairs because we cannot. There are
                  happy people living in England and Canada and Australia and even the Falkland’s
                  (there is another little island but we will not talk about them) . Either that
                  or hand it over to China. Ridge said we will surrender so who do you think would be best? England or China?

                  I don’t want you to make a hasty decision but the English speak
                  our language and they not only drink beer, they practically perfected it. Anyone ever hear of the stout they brewed
                  for the Czar? Imperial Stout? I don’t know about you, but the Chineese food is good now and then. I just don’t get a groove on for a big bowl of rice.

                  Their beer is pathetic fish water. I am more of a meat and potatoes person and
                  you know what, so are the British. The weirdest thing they might serve once and
                  a while is haggis. I can stomach that. The Chineese eat all kinds of parts of a fish we would throw in a garden for fertilizer, but not the Brits. No Ma’am, they eat only the good parts of a fish and serve
                  it often with beer. They batter and deep-fry the fish to a crispy delicious texture that comes from a medieval recipe they spit into. The malt vinegar is used to kill any surviving germs.

                  We are at a crossroads on a slippery slope. Ask yourself how many times you laughed at a good chineese joke in chineese media. NEVER! The driest English humor is better than the best Chineese
                  humor. If I am going to be a subject of the Crown at least I will be able to
                  laugh about it with the rest of them, with my fish and chips proper.

                   

                  Miasma. Wow!   
                                          I wonder how that relates to the Dunning-Krugar effect?

                   

                  Queen me.

                      cuts, spending cuts without touching the gargantuan defense budget.” How does this woman do that? In one sentence she slays the topic. How is it she can see so clearly and state so succinctly what we ourselves cannot?

                      I say we should rethink our relationship to the Crown  (c/o pretty Polly) and
                      give it all back. Let the Crown manage our affairs because we cannot. There are
                      happy people living in England and Canada and Australia and even the Falkland’s
                      (there is another little island but we will not talk about them) . Either that
                      or hand it over to China. Ridge said we will surrender so who do you think would be best? England or China?

                      I don’t want you to make a hasty decision but the English speak
                      our language and they not only drink beer, they practically perfected it. Anyone ever hear of the stout they brewed
                      for the Czar? Imperial Stout? I don’t know about you, but the Chineese food is good now and then. I just don’t get a groove on for a big bowl of rice.

                      Their beer is pathetic fish water. I am more of a meat and potatoes person and
                      you know what, so are the British. The weirdest thing they might serve once and
                      a while is haggis. I can stomach that. The Chineese eat all kinds of parts of a fish we would throw in a garden for fertilizer, but not the Brits. No Ma’am, they eat only the good parts of a fish and serve
                      it often with beer. They batter and deep-fry the fish to a crispy delicious texture that comes from a medieval recipe they spit into. The malt vinegar is used to kill any surviving germs.

                      We are at a crossroads on a slippery slope. Ask yourself how many times you laughed at a good chineese joke in chineese media. NEVER! The driest English humor is better than the best Chineese
                      humor. If I am going to be a subject of the Crown at least I will be able to
                      laugh about it with the rest of them, with my fish and chips proper.

                       

                      Miasma. Wow!   
                                              I wonder how that relates to the Dunning-Krugar effect?

                       

                      Queen me.

                      Queenie, Queenie, Queenie.

                      What's it been, a couple weeks now since you've taken your meds?

                      You've been flitting and fluttering about here like a gadfly taking one position in one post and the opposite in the next. You're clearly unstable and even though that in itself is not a disqualifier for people (even spokesmen and leaders) of your political genre (democrat), it does cause me some concern for your general well-being. 

                      Isn't someone supposed to be watching you?

                      Some of us are getting worried about you, an old fat man sitting at his computer in his bra and nylons with makeup and lipstick smeared all over his face with a glass of cheap vodka in his hand and a cigarette in his mouth.

                      Though the visual makes you very popular in democrat circles some of us are genuinely concerned for your mental health.

                      Please take your meds Queenie.

                      How about it Fruitcake?

                        Look Here seekers,
                        From over the sea - here is a fresh perspective:

                        http://www.guardian.co.uk/commentisfree/2011/aug/01/britain-resist-tea-party-thinking

                        You see they have a bit of an advantage because of their
                        standards of civil order. “Our senior civil service prides itself on
                        drawing on the finest Oxbridge minds because they should be trained in
                        evidence-based thinking.”   Boy, it sure is nice when someone can put in words what is going on.

                        The English actually still use evidenced – based thinking. What a bunch of maroons. Could that be yet
                        another reason Murdoch was handed his hat? Did he not know that not towing the
                        line on global warming could have had such an effect on his own punny
                        empire? Very simply put, Murdoch was not PC on many levels. He is unacceptable. So is FOX.

                        The TEAs are not PC. They are being handed their hats. They are,… undesireable. They are,... the Malcontent Party.

                        This is a short article and is well written.

                          jarasan,

                          You are very good at posting videos without telling us who, what, where, or why!  What is your point with this one, that the Brits know how to resist when they believe they're being treated unfairly?  Or what?

                          BTW,

                          ...  Who is nomoreliblabcon?

                          ...  And we're still waiting for your take on this...

                            Are you "reading" the posts???????  The point of the video is that it isn't so civil and evidence based in the country "England".  And I meant Dunning Krugar bugger toe self aggrandizing POS.

                              Listen up Queenie,

                              Your messiah said if we didn't raise the debt ceiling the Dow would plunge.

                              The idiots raised it and it's plunging anyway.

                              Are you gonna be right behind him sniffing his ass all the way to perdition?

                              I think he owes you and all his other ass-sniffers a firm handshake, a pat on the back and a warm smile of approval.Big Grin

                              Try not to swoon.

                              Do you sleep on a cot at the foot of the LP Grand Poobah's bed?

                              It's one way to explain how you enjoy free reign with your language here.

                              Nary a <snip> Wink
