Insane Clown Politicos: Rand Paul vs. The Texan

image

Here we are, a little more than halfway through the Great Hope and Change’s lame duck term and the first bit of fanfare, the first sweet stake has been driven into  the ground in pursuit of the ’16 election. This past weekend those news stations desperate to shine a coin in the eyes of their readers decided to cover the small row Governor Rick “the Texan” Perry had with Kentucky Senator Rand Paul. You have to give credit to GOP politics; if nothing else, they’re entertaining. The latest display from the Texan had him attacking the junior Senator’s assumed isolationist stance against involving America in more foreign wars. Paul has expressed his concerns over our country getting back in Iraq and met Perry’s attacks with his own line of verbal confrontation.
“If refusing to send Americans to die for a country that refuses to defend itself makes one an ‘isolationist’, then perhaps it’s time we retire that pejorative”.
Rand Paul continued to ward off blows from the man made famous for not remembering three things in a debate. I feel Perry wants to knock out any intelligent competition early on to make the battle for GOP candidacy a bit easier. Paul has been busy sowing seeds with the religious right but I’m sure his election committee is not putting all his eggs in that basket. The gaggle of religious zealot voters will only give him fraction poll numbers and he’ll need plenty to stay in the race. Personally, if I were Rand Paul, I’d go ‘metal’ and make a push to legalize weed in Kentucky. The national press and dullards like Sarah Palin would have a field day on an announcement of that caliber but someone in the Republican realm needs to realize they need a shakeup – bad – to drum up some votes and if you think only Democrats smoke pot, you need to take a trip to Colorado. The Bluegrass state already harvests acres of the stuff, why not tax it, help the terrible unemployment problem there and gain some votes from on the fence ‘undecided’ people in this country? Right now the most noticed thing coming out of Kentucky is Senator Mitch McConnel’s mouth. That old political sloth needs to go sit in a corner and sip juleps until his liver gives out. The man does nothing good for his state, our country, or civilisation in general.
Now don’t think the Republicans are the only ones in our election rundown with sideshow appeal; the Dems are certain to come on full force as well. Hillary Clinton will probably jump out there for everyone to snarl at like a WWE villain… And then there’s Uncle Joe Biden who makes us all laugh because we  know when it comes to getting something done in this country, Joe is about as effective as a broken shoestring.
So let’s all keep tabs on Rand Paul and the Texan….it’s bound to get even more entertaining-hell, they might even cart Michelle Bachmann in to eat an immigrant infant live on TV…stay tuned folks. The ICP have just started getting warmed up.

Amerika

I’m not proud to be an American; I’m lucky to be one, but not proud. There is very little most of us have done recently to take pride in the once great nation our fore mothers and fore fathers fought for. I thought about this on the evening of July fourth, the celebrated day our nation claimed independence from a tyrannical ruling party. While we all celebrated and watched fireworks my mind wandered in thought on those early patriots. If they saw what had become of the country they would surely shoot their children to spare them the slow disgrace now known as these United States.
The early settlers held a vision to escape European rule and venture to new land where they could live free from religious persecution. Our nation continues to battle its own with words of hate and condemning actions thrust on those who won’t adhere to the scripture of a particular God. This isn’t religious freedom, it’s tribal hysteria.
Our early ancestors would not tolerate unrepresented taxation from the ruling overlords and believed in a system based on democratic vote. We now find corporations deemed as individuals and these power broking behemoths now guide the path our laws seem to take.
Our military was meant to protect our borders from foreign intrusion yet all I read are stories of our sons, daughters, wives and husbands, mothers and fathers being shipped off to places a lot of people couldn’t point out to you on a map. They become maimed or killed not for the sake of a freer America, but for the ego of some clandestine pack of policy makers.
Our votes have become regulated and predictable as we are given the choice to be ruled by an ass or a ferret. Companies purchase the right to use us as test animals….rub the stuff in the bunny’s eye and see if it reacts. The only ones held accountable for their actions are those who cannot afford decent legal representation. What a sin this nation has become.
I boarded the bus this afternoon with a young Armenian man who recently came to this country. He expressed a somewhat disappointed view of America but figured he’d stick it out – at least until he can get to Canada. I told him I might join him on a venture to the Great White North…and that’s a sad thing to admit. I want to have pride in this country but unless we all step up and work to make this a land by the people and for the people, why would I press false patriotism toward an America hellbent on destroying its children?
Next July Fourth I hope we all truly have something to celebrate about. Let’s work to patch this country again, set aside the petty problems and focus on the scary large ones….because if we can’t stop the oppression, we should probably just light a lot more fireworks…..a LOT more fireworks.
…..welcome to the Church.
