Ten Issues Nobody Really Cares About

Wednesday, August 21st, 2013

1) Torture: Manning gets 35 years for leaking documents, while torture continues in Guantanamo and around the world.

2) Syria: Chemical weapons or not, nobody’s going to war for Syria.

3) Egypt: a failed state and a successful military dictatorship.

4) Middle East peace: a sham and a fraud, as it’s been most of the last 65 years.

5) The deficit and/or the debt: Both are falling, while those who claim to be worried are only worried about their taxes being raised.

6) Gun Control: puhleeze…

7) Immigration Reform: has never been a realistic possibility in this Congress.

8) Afghanistan and Pakistan: two failed states in a race to the Islamist bottom.

9) North Korea: Maybe the Chinese are slightly worried about massive refugee flows when the regime implodes, but otherwise there’s nothing there.

10) The “rebranding” of the Know Nothing Party: see Middle East peace.

How The Know Nothings Can Change In Two Easy Steps

Monday, March 18th, 2013

1) Care about something other than tax cuts for the wealthiest Americans.

2) Recognize publicly that appeals to racism, homophobia, and misogyny do not win national elections any more.

Gorilla says: “They can’t get past the first step, and the rest of us can’t get past the second”.


Asked And Answered

Thursday, February 14th, 2013

Why is it that the Know Nothing Party’s effort to redefine itself for Hispanics includes two Hispanic Senators, one of whom is an idiot and the other of whom appears certifiable?

Gorilla answers: “Because that’s the state of the Know Nothing union”.


Quick Takes For The Week

Friday, August 31st, 2012

CIA: Impunity is alive and well in the USA. No punishment for torture, co-opting the NY Times, and who knows what about rendition. All part of the accountability-free era for all public officials above the level of PFC Koran Burner and Corpse Urinator.

Bernanke Speaks!: And again says nothing. It’s clear that whatever QE3 may be, it won’t be anything like enough to change the tragedy befalling millions of Americans.

Know Nothing Party Convention: Who cares? A parallel universe inhabited by clueless, amoral liars.

Isaac: Not as bad as feared, and a clear demonstration that a competent government, adequately led and mobilized, can indeed make all the difference in everyone’s lives.

Euroland: Dithering now a fine art, although not quite as efficient or obvious as the impact of massive capital flight or the highest level of unemployment since the onset of dithering.

Shoot, shoot, shoot: Just don’t mention how easy it is for someone even crazier than Paul Ryan to bring down a buck disguised as an innocent peaceful assembly.

Third World starvation: Increasingly on the cards as food prices rise 10%. No, we haven’t heard a single leader in the developed world question for one moment the contribution of farm subsidies to poverty.

Syria/Iran/Iraq: Which will come first: nuclear weapons capability, an unending civil war, or the first bilateral summit in nearly 35 years?

Amoral Liars And An Amoral Fed Chairman

Thursday, August 30th, 2012

Gorilla’s been under the weather this week, but he clearly hasn’t missed much.

First up, the Know Nothing convention. When racist, misogynistic liars gather, there’s no news, just amoral, cowardly bullshit. One speech after another filled with lies is what it is: desperation coupled with hatred. Didn’t work for the Nazis, won’t work for the Know Nothings.

Next up, the Fed Chairman, who’s long on words, short on actions, and just as amoral as the bunch gathering in Tampa. There’s zero inflation and high unemployment, and the Fed, as it has for the past decade, is failing completely to support the dual mandate. Goosing asset prices and fighting non-existent inflation, while millions suffer for no reason, is not a serious economic policy.

Gorilla says: “It’s all about the accountability free era we live in: You can’t have a failure of leadership when you have no leaders!”


The Pro-Rapist Party

Tuesday, August 21st, 2012

The Know Nothing Party is a pro-rapist party.

Your rapist can be a relative.

Your rapist can be your husband.

Your rapist can be a total stranger.

It matters not at all whether you were raped statutorially, forcibly, or incestuously: If you’re raped, you must bear your rapist’s child.

That’s the party’s platform, and has been for the last 3 Presidential elections.

Gorilla says: “Fighting the Taliban? Not so much at home!”


Not That Anyone Might Notice

Monday, August 20th, 2012

The Know Nothing Party: home of racists, home of misogynists, home of homophobia…

The clown from Missouri’s “legitimate rape” nonsense puts him squarely in the middle of today’s Know Nothing Party.

The majority of these hateful and despicable amoral sociopathic cowards believe that women should be kept in a permanent state of second-class citizenship.

And not a single Know Nothing bothered to condemn this idiocy.

Romney and Ryan (sponsor of the Federal Personhood Amendment, whose views are precisely identical to the Missouri clown’s) merely “disagree”.

Gorilla says: “A vote for these guys is a vote for bigotry, nothing more and nothing less!”


And The Difference Would Be?

Friday, July 13th, 2012

2008: Know Nothing Party nominates for Vice President a one-term (who ends up serving only half of one-term) Governor who turns out to be a lying, amoral, sociopathic clown.

2012: Know Nothing Party nominates for President a one-term Governor who turns out to be a lying, amoral, sociopathic clown.

Gorilla says: “Beats me what the difference is!”


Another Clown Primary Day

Tuesday, February 28th, 2012

Michigan and Arizona this time!

Here’s the wisdom from Gorilla:

Michigan: If Santorum wins, there’ll be another 2 weeks of fretting by Beltway Know Nothings. If Romney wins, it’s over. Either way, neither clown will win the state in the fall.

Arizona: Easy win for Romney, plenty of Mormons in a state with Know Nothings who are more racist than theocratic. Certainly a tossup this fall.

Gorilla says: “Two pathological liars equals one sweet victory this November!”


Who’s Left To Vote For These Jokers?

Wednesday, February 15th, 2012

Down now to two Know Nothing candidates, both of whom support policies that promote racism, misogyny, and the interests of amoral groups like the Catholic Bishops and the Koch brothers.

The question isn’t who’ll lose to President Obama, it’s whether the loss will be Landon/Goldwateresque.

There appear to be no groups, other than rich, racist, misogynistic, and semi-celebate old white men, who will support either the Romney or the Santorum clown.

Gorilla: “Mostly elephant droppings at this circus!”
