Republicans call for "Revolution"
« on: June 23, 2014, 09:45:02 am »

Basically, a bunch of R's feel their religious, etc. rights are being infringed upon because they're not allowed to infringe upon the rights of other people.  Funny how the Rep doing all the b*tching mentions a bunch of B.S. that has nothing to do with religion (Bengazi, Iraq, etc.). 

The comments are lovely as well, but then I noticed the article came from Fox News (It just appeared as a headline when I logged on), so that explains a lot.
Whenever I hear a politician speaking strongly for or against abortion, all I hear is, "I have no idea how to fix the economy!"

I quote Rush's "Enemy Within" (one of my all-time favorite songs by one of my all-time favorite bands):

"To you, is it movement or is it action?
Is it contact or just reaction?
And you...revolution or just resistance?
Is it living, or just existence?"

My money's on resistance. They're just making themselves look like fools.
I'm in science to discover and analyze God's wonderful universe, not gripe about how people don't like God.  I believe the creation/evolution debate is a waste of Christian brains (we have them, believe it or not) that could be better spent on making actual things.

Favorite philosophers (out of the ones I've personally read): Jesus, Solomon, Marcus Aurelius, Immanuel Kant

Is it a requirement to be brain dead when running for office as a Republican?

What they're trying to say is, "We intend to remain revolting."
I am an old man, and I've seen many problems, most of which never happened.

... okay, seriously, what's it take to indict these fuckers for treason?

[racist conservative] they're clearly not terrorists!  Look at how much they don't look like Muslims or black people! [/racist conservative]

Aren't the Republicans in America sort of the opposite of oppressed?

Their districts are protected by ironclad gerrymanders, they have a sympathetic supreme court. The American political system also neatly prevents anyone who doesn't have serious money from running anywhere which means they'll never have to go up against an actual socialist opposition. The war on drugs has allowed them to declare war on minorities and immigrants without calling it that and most of the wealth in their country goes straight to their corporate backers.

It's high summer for the Repubs, what are they so pissy about?

They don't have the White House. That's illegitimate.

The party's name is the Democratic Party. It has been since 1830. Please spell correctly.

"The party must go wholly one way or wholly the other. It cannot face in both directions at the same time."

The nights are growing longer and the leaves on the oldest and weakest trees are starting to turn. Winter is inexorably coming and they know it.

Actual treason?

And nearly outright stating "yes, we're advocating armed insurrection against the democratically elected president and cabinet and tactitly support anyone that has the wherewithal to do so" isn't enough?

Nope.  They can say anything they want.  As long as they're not actually planning, can't do shit.

With the wide-spread availability of the internet, lots of people are watching these morons flail about like a bunch of children throwing a tantrum because they can't just nick cookies out of the jar, anymore.  Hopefully, their prospective constituents see this and laugh.  Laugh at them for their pathetic failings and kick them right in the collective, political dick.

That's true. Think about it. Each generation is less wingnutty that the last. Most of the the far-right voters are up there in years. Over time, there will be less old reactionaries voting. The gerrymanders would be meaningless over time.

Besides, who's to say that progressive folks could decide to move into those gerrymandered districts en masse?

Y'know? I think the reason there's so many reactionaries popping up all over the planet is because Progressiveness is WORKING. If things were hunky-dory for Regressives, they wouldn't be making such a noise.

It is my view of things that, while the villains may win much of the battles, the heroes usually win the war.
