GOP Ideas

What an oxymoron.

Hey, I’ve got an idea for them.  Let’s kill of those over 60 or the ones who are no longer consumers. 

With the world population hittin’ 7 billion, we can convert their corpses to pet food.  Fido can eat aunt Mimi.  Hey it’s only a thought.

We can cut taxes, cut spending, cut Social Security, cut Medicare, cut Medicaid, and urge non-consumers to cut their wrists.

I don’t want to see sick people. 

The Gov has accomplished the the removal of all returned soldiers from the streets and from our view.  Ever notice that you don’t see any young men in uniform who’ve returned from the wars hanging around the malls.  There must be a reason for that.

What do you think it is?

I wonder if it is someone’s bright idea.

Ideas! We got ideas.  And PowerPoint presentations.  That’s our product.

That and death!

Keep it up Obimbo. Sell those weapons to India.  Give ‘em to Pakistan.  Drop ‘em on yemen and Afghanistan.

But what the hell, you’re our first ‘black ‘prevident’, and we are all enamored with you.  We don’t want to be labelled racists.  Now do we?

And you’re just like all the rest—a fuckin’ no good bum. Go back to kenya where you belong.

You delivered the prospects of, Romney, Huckabee, Gingrich and Palin and a horde of ignorant, crazy Americans.

I think the world is sick of us.  I think they will have had enough by 2012.

So smoke ‘em if you got ‘em, you losers.

Hey, I’ve got an idea.  Cut taxes.

For jobs. 

Since the Bush tax cuts led so many job creators to open the flood gates and create them thar jobs, why not keep it up.  Tax cuts. Tax cuts.

And the wars.  Who can doubt the logic of a tax cut and a drone?  Fareed Zakaria asked the Prime Minister of Yemen a few months ago on his Sunday Morning GPS program, would the PM be willing to allow the US to attack his country with drones.  The Yemeni PM hemmed and hawed and sidetracked the question.

One of Cockburns wrote an article that it was a bad idea to get involved with Yemen.  After the drones comes the ground forces, No?

Well, as Cockburn pointed out, Yemen might be worse than Afghanistan.

It’s time to take a serious look at who’s behind all this terrorism and who’s benefitting from it. It just does not make any sense.  At all.

Either that or give me a job like Brennan’s.

What a fucking panty waste he is.  And the whole friggin’ slew of ‘em.

Homeland Security. 

The TSA’s that frisk you at the airport make $11.00 an hour.  Commandante Brennan.  What does he make?

As the Pope says, “Dominic, go frisk ‘em,”  Now, we have $11.00 an hour shit bums telling us to lift our arms while they shoot us with who knows what level of X-Ray. 

Question: Can the level of x-ray be changed?  Can they be individually raised to a level to cause cellular damage.

I’m just asking.

This would be a telling image if the Democrats had any new ideas, but
they don’t.  At least none that they are willing to advocate in the face of
Wall Street/corporate opposition.
