What Is Wrong With You People?!?

I wasn't going to come back, honest I wasn't - at least not this soon.  But those jackasses in Congress have me so riled up, I could just spit! Especially that  head jackass, John Boehner. He has to be the worst House Majority Leader this country has ever seen.

How did we ever let things get this far?  When the Tea Party  reared its ugly head, only a very small minority took them seriously. At first, they were just a group of people who seemed to be sincerely concerned that government was too big and taxes were too high, and they made a lot of noise about it.

But then, the original group was taken over by a bunch of nasty, mean-spirited, racists, mostly ignorant southern rednecks who saw an opportunity to simply bring down the black president and the entire government along with him, and they have nearly succeeded.  They are no longer about making government smaller. They are insurgents, bent on forcing their idealogies on everyone. No better than Al Quaeda.

They are aided and abetted by some self-serving Republicans who thought they could use them to gain the majority in the House of Representatives.  Then, I believe they thought they could send the Tea Party on its way, but, that didn't work.  Certain factions within the Republican Party aligned themselves with the Tea Party because they knew they couldn't win their own elections without their support and now, they either can't or don't want to rid themselves of them.

We've created a monster.  And, it has shut down the government.  And, the one man who could do something about it simply by bringing the Continuing Resolution to the floor and allowing the members to vote on it is John Boehner.  But he's scared.  He has aligned himself so closely with a minority of the minority that if he stands up to them, he will probably lose his leadership position.  He's probably right. But, he's brought it upon himself. He deserves to lose it.

Speaker Boehner: For once in your sorry life, grow a pair and stand up to the Tea Party.  Then, retire. 

Stay tuned.

Amen, Betty. Welcome back!

I am convinced that the current political scene is clear evidence of just how deep and pervasive racism continues to be. It is nothing but shameful.

Betty said...

Tincanman: Thanks. It's good to be back, and have someplace to rant.

Olga: What amazes me is the number of people who I know voted for Obama, and almost immediately after he took the oath of office, turned against him. Strange.

savannah said...

amen, sister! and welcome back to the fight! xoxoxox

Betty said...

Grayquill: Not so much better (yes, they are), just nicer. Much, much nicer. You should do something about that cough.

Savannah: Thanks. I hope I can think of something to say once I have said all I can about the Tea Party.
