The Blog Catches Up With Ten Tired Topics

Friday, November 8th, 2013

Gorilla’s not been blogging lately, mostly because he’s got nothing more to say about the following topics:

1) GOP intransigence: Now in Year 5.

2) Immigration reform: Never had a chance, will never have a chance until Republicans are booted back to a minority in all three branches of government.

3) ENDA: ditto.

4) Healthcare reform: a big botch, mainly because Medicare for all would have been much easier to implement, so long as your vested interest wasn’t insurance.

5) Chris Christie: he’ll never be the GOP nominee for President.

6) Ken Cuccinelli: Off to the land of grifterhood.

7) Euroland: finally decided to do some of the right thing with interest rates, but still not doing what’s needed: a much higher inflation target, the end of austerity, and a big increase in German consumption.

8) Fed: See Euroland.

9) Hillary Clinton: if she runs, she’ll win, if she doesn’t, Dems will win anyway.

10: Gun Control: see Immigration and ENDA.

Refusing To Govern

Saturday, September 28th, 2013

The Know Nothings will discover yet again that the country blames them, and only them, for both their extremism and for the possible meltdown of the US economy.

Gorilla says: “Fuck them! And never vote again for any Republican!”


The All-White, All-Male Choir

They hate women, every minority, and the poor.

They will do whatever it takes to prevent women, every minority, and the poor from having equal justice under the law and political power.

They care only that the rich have the lowest taxes possible.

They are amoral and cowardly fellow citizens.

They will only be defeated by the fact that no one lives forever.

Gorilla says: “They are the lesser angels of our nature!”


What The GOP Is Mostly About

Tax cuts for the rich above all, but following closely behind are misogyny, racism and homophobia.

In short, they’re the scum of the earth.

And they won’t change until the voters decisively reject their message of hatred.

Gorilla says: “You don’t need an ultrasound to see what evil is!”


Au Contraire, They’re Laughable

Yet another in the Washington Post’s Conventional Wisdom Of DC series, wherein something totally idiotic is claimed on behalf of total idiots!

This one’s all about how much the freshman GOP class in the House has changed the political game. And they have to some extent, forcing the previous Know Nothings to participate in as extremist an agenda as has come before Congress since the civil rights days.

But one thing isn’t mentioned: these dolts have absolutely zero leverage in any ongoing discussion about the budget, or destroying science, or gutting Planned Parenthood!

If the government shuts down, guess who will be blamed? The House GOP!

If they pass bills and the President vetos them, guess who will be blamed? The House GOP!

If they think that increasing the ranks of the unemployed, busting unions, and continuing to allow thousands of uninsured Americans to die needlessly is just the ticket, guess who will be blamed? The House GOP!

Gorilla says: “Pay no attention to them, they’re not serious and shouldn’t be taken seriously at all!”
