The Baboon Caucus displays its hindquarters

The Baboon Caucus: They always have a case of the red ass.

The Baboon Caucus: They always have a case of the red ass.

Good God, these Tea Bagger twats in the Baboon Caucus are a shameless cluster of fucks.

One minute the feddle gummint is Gigantor, Terror of Civilization, the next it’s a bunny hutch full of fluffy cottontails.

Quoth The New York Times, discussing the House Repugs’ sudden change of heart as they scramble to find a hole through which to scamper in the Shutdown Shithouse they’ve constructed:

Programs that conservatives had tolerated at best were suddenly lavished with praise: nutrition assistance for women and children, federal medical research, national parks, the Smithsonian Institution, even the government of the District of Columbia, which was authorized to spend money to pick up Washington’s trash, maintain its needle exchange program for intravenous drug users and even implement the health care law.

Said Rep. Gerald E. Connolly (D-Va.): “This has been an Orwellian week in which white is black and black is white.”

As long as you don’t look at the Baboon Caucus’s hindquarters, that is. Still flaming red, and that will never change, no matter what they say.

    The Creed of the Extreme Right Wing is this:

    Poor people have too much money, which makes them unmotivated to work. We need to cut off public assistance, cut tax breaks, bust their unions and cap minimum wage levels.

    Rich people have too little money, which makes them unmotivated to work invest. We need to give them more tax breaks and de-regulate business.

    It’s a f**ked up creed if ever there’s been one. It’s reverse Christianity. And it’s killing our Nation.

      Reverse Christianity! Love it.

      I’ve been saying for quite some time that modern conservatism and Christianity are incompatible philosophies. As are actual conservatism and modern Christianity.

    They realize we are started to get wise. Time for distractions. A few commando raids, re-stoke the fires of the fear of and war on terrorism, and start undoing the shutdown with rehiring DoD civilians and granting back pay for federal workers. Next week they will re-open the government and extend the debt ceiling and then brag about their accomplishments. They want us to forget their continuing failure to do their basic work of managing the nation’s finance and debt while continuing to spend, propping up the markets with federal reserve funny money, and taking care of the 1%. Remember this when you contact them and vote.

    Please excuse a quick change of subject. Just heard this on “Weekend Edition.”

      The USA might be next – the 1% may be the only ones who can afford cars and gasoline soon. I’ve said for years an additional half-a-buck per gallon tax would do a lot of things, starting with forcing some conservation efforts via things like cycling, but could also pay for infrastructure, including bike lanes, etc. But it’s just like a carbon tax, pretty much a non-starter in a country where wasting energy seems to be a national pastime.
      Meanwhile, the cops may be coming for me on Monday after I taped a “We’ve had enough TEA, thanks!” sign on the door of our Congressman’s local office, despite an ominous sign warning of 24/7 video surveillance and enforcement by the Capitol Police.

    What I want to know is this…why do I have to keep paying taxes while the government is not open? When our cable, insurance, etc is not in service, we get a credit for those days. Gives the company an incentive to keep the service running so that they don’t have to give credits. BTW, loved the New Mexico/Colorado trip. I don’t fly fish, but hubby does and had a great time in the quality waters. Loved the morning chilly air too as it’s going to be in the 90s still this week. Garden needs some cooler weather.

    • Patrick O'Grady Says:

      Glad you and the hubster enjoyed the visit, Sharon. We’ve been able to shut off the ceiling fans, and the furnace clicks on in the morning, but come afternoon the temps are in the 60s and 70s, which is purt’ damn’ near perfect as far as I’m concerned.

    Changing subjects again for a minute. I received my “Adventure Cycling” magazine today, went on the patio with it and a Fat Tire, and read it cover to cover. Patrick, your review of the Jones was a nice piece of work! Thanks.

    • Patrick O'Grady Says:

      Thank you, Patrick. I think I mentioned that I bought the Jones, yeah? I’ve been riding it quite a bit lately, and just wrapped up its two-minute video review, which should be coming to the Adventure Cycling Association website directly. Even got some old-man-riding shots with the GoPro Hero 3. Don’t try this at home. …

      • psobrien Says:

        I have a Hero 2. Unfortunately, I also have the 2008 version of iMovie which won’t output HD video. And I am too cheap to buy the 2011 version when I am ready to but a new iMac which comes with it already installed. I guess early next year it will be time to replace this 5 year old iMac and start editing the HD video I take with the GoPro.

      • Patrick O'Brien Says:

        I do remember that you bought the Jones. Only question now is do you find hard to decide what to ride when you go to the garage?

    Het Larry T, I’ll throw in a can of soup.

    • Larry T. Says:

      Can of soup? For what? So I can throw it at the Feds and try to escape? Meanwhile, our bike stable is getting smaller – actually just more dispersed as I packed up a couple of bikes to ship out to SoCal for our visits there along with the bici d’epoca we’ll bring with us on the plane to Italy next month. Leaves some hooks open down in the shop – making room for winter project.
