I'm Goin Off The Rails On A Crazy Train... (Ozzy Osbourne)

Holy Shit! Talk about a hornet’s nest! Yesterday I voted “yes” in a Facebook poll asking if the president should be able to address school children without a response from the opposition. Immediately below that, I posted that I was “stunned that the Obama speech to children has become an issue. I hope the speech is brilliant and those in opposition are revealed to be the idiots they are. These people are really starting to piss me off......”

Get this. Those two entries generated a combined 49 comments (so far)! I had a busy day and couldn’t possibly respond to them all so I’m writing this blog. And I am going to offer up two links that pretty much say it all. The right is self destructing. Why this is happening (and I have said this before) is summed up beautifully in an article entitled “Republican Popularity Plummeting As They Continue Boarding The Crazy Train”. It speaks to the declining popularity of the GOP and points out it’s bastion of strength lies in southern white males. But even THAT is beginning to deteriorate. It states that 69% of the “Birthers” (you know, the nut jobs that insist Obama wasn’t born in Hawaii) are from the southern states. This is not good for Southerners. It’s not like they haven’t been trying to shake off stereotypical characterizations since the civil war. There are a lot of great people from the south. There are apparently also a lot of nuts (no, not peanuts… but those too). The article cites other examples of this phenomena and is an interesting read. Check it out here….

The second link is a letter from “Helen” to “Margaret”. Helen and Margaret have apparently been best friends for 60 years. The sight lists postings from both of them. It’s a lot of fun. Take a look. I will let you read the specific letter for yourself. Frankly, I don’t think I have anything to add. Helen says it all! She thinks the GOP has gone crazy too.

Many thanks to the high school friend who sent me the links in response to all the Facebook activity. This isn’t the first time I’ve used his stuff!

So, I’ve been asked how I would have felt if THE MORON had addressed our kids. What the fuck are these people talking about? Is there a President in recent history who never addressed our school kids in one way or another? THE MORON went into schools. THE MORON was reading to kids while we were under attack and didn’t seem to be in too big a hurry to STOP reading to check on the situation. I never uttered a peep when THE MORON read to or addressed children. And he was a MORON. Obama graduated Suma Cum Laude. He made the Harvard Law Review. He taught constitutional law. And these fucking lunatics have a problem with the guy but were perfectly OK with THE MORON. We need to start calling bullshit on these people. I mean it really is a form of insanity. The GOP agenda is being pushed along by crazy people. And my God are they stupid! When are they going to realize that they are making total fools of themselves?
