So Many Schmucks, So Little Time

Ah, who can I beat on today? Let's start with the Governor of Louisiana, Bobby Boy Jindal. Nice piece of work, this guy. Slams the Guvmint Bailout, says "I don't want yer funny money," and then what does he do? Takes the money, has some way over-sized checks printed with "State of Lousiiaaanah," and signed by, you guessed it, Bobby Boy hiself. Now for the fun part - he goes around to all these rabid Wrong Winger churches and gives away the buckaroos (remember, from the Guvmint) and totally fergeddin' about that pesky "separation of Church and State" proceeds to give a sermon.

And is there a single Repub, anywhere in this so-called republic, who says, "hey there, Bobby Boy, knock that stuff off," as would befit the member of any party who has taken the oath to protect and defend the Constitution of the United States*? Hah! Not by yer short hairs, kid.

So, on the same day, the same bloody day, dammit, another Retread goes on a rant about the Prez gonna broadcast his address to Congress to the schools being somehow "indoctrination" (as opposed to a civics lesson) and therefore tryin' ta take the kiddies out 'o their parents "control."

These flakes are bound and determined to have our cake, and make us believe we actually ate it ourselves. Come on, fer cry-yi! Would someone please just slap these guys? How the hell is it the Dems can't get a backbone? Here they have the freakin' majority, and they just keep on wringin' their hands, because they can't both hold lobbyists money and scratch their heads at the same time, complaining their constituents "don't want any thing to change." Hell, most of them didn't want the Civil Rights bill either, but, surprise IT WAS THE RIGHT THING TO DO. Get off yer sorry asses, and get the job done. The Wrong Wing thinks their right because they are loud and nasty, so you Dems keep rollin' over and whimpering. Puh-leeze.

*The Oath - The current oath was enacted in 1884:
    I do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic; that I will bear true faith and allegiance to the same; that I take this obligation freely, without any mental reservation or purpose of evasion; and that I will well and faithfully discharge the duties of the office on which I am about to enter: So help me God.

OK. Now tell me what part of that means you get to pick and choose WHICH PARTS of the Constitution you get to protect and defend? Tell me how anyone who is clearly violating that oath is NOT a domestic enemy of same? Go on, tell me. And if you can't make a REALLY good argument, then just sit down.

And if you aren't outraged by these and all the other nasty little things being done by the Wrong Wingers, then by your silence you condone the same.

So shame on them. Shame on all of us.
