Aaaaaa Yup!

There was weeping and wailing and gnashing of teeth;
There was panic in the hen house;
The dogs were all howling and the children were crying;
As the Democrats went to bed.

Aaaa Yup.

The Republicans are now running the country.

As I have said before, we get the government we deserve and we deserve the government we get.  (Even though that it circular - it sounds good.)

Another platitude:
The inmates have truly taken over the asylum, so now that crazy uncle can sit at the head of the Thanksgiving table and hold fourth.

We do live in a democracy and election results reflect the will of the majority.  Election results also reflect the actual state of the nation itself. 

We liberals don’t like to admit it, but this is the America we now live in: a Christian America of gun violence, racism, Tea Party radicalism, militias, out of control police; a country with a higher prison population than collage attendance; a nation that holds prisoners without trial – a nation that executes its prisoners; a nation that is more concerned with its military than with its poor.

Europeans have known our true nature for a long time.

Today we can use the excuse that Democrats are apathetic and stayed home; that Democratic representatives took noncontroversial stands in order to maintain a low profile to secure their own jobs in the future; but this is who Democrats are. 

We are a Tea Party nation.
Texans don’t need to secede –we are all Texans now. 

I’ll be going down to get my concealed carry ID right after I build a fence to keep non-whites out of my yard while I wait on the Rapture.
Naaaa, I will just probably watch movies on NETFLIX, read, drink wine, make love with my wife and occasionally blog.

the Ol’Buzzard



  1. The Republicans were running things in 2000. They cut the taxes for the wealthy & the corporations, they invaded two far off nations in Asia and they borrowed the money to do it all.
    Then the Democrats took over... and nothing changed.

    I think you have the right idea in your last paragraph.

  2. The Republicans have been running the country since the Reagan administration. Clinton was Republican-lite with his love of Big Business and eager deregulation of the banking industry; Obama has been just as bad. Remember the way he refused to even discuss single payer when they were drafting the Affordable Care Act? He sold us all out to keep the insurance companies happy. We've just managed to delude ourselves that somehow he's an actual Democrat instead of an Eisenhower Republican.

    Sorry about what happened to your state with the governor's race. Our governor here in Michigan is an ass, but he's also smart enough to occasionally allow pragmatism to trump his personal prejudices. Your governor, on the other hand, appears to have swum out of the shallow end of the gene pool.

  3. Before the election I said things will have to get worse before the people wake up and realize who is fucking them. Looks like they hit the snooze button!!

  4. Given the choice between Republican or Republican Lite...Americans will choose Republicans every time. I'm not sure who said that, it was either Harry Truman or Howard Dean..........

  5. Psst...hey buddy, I got yer rapture right here, now, in a little plastic bag and the first one is free....

  6. BUT Obama doesn't have to give a rat's ass about Democrats anymore and can go ahead and do stuff with Executive whatever it is called.


COMMENT: Ben Franklin said, "I imagine a man must have a good deal of vanity who believes, and a good deal of boldness who affirms, that all doctrines he holds are true, and all he rejects are false."
