Wilkes 45




Recently, a sitting member of Congress informed us that she was pretty upset about the people who are “making fun” of Congress members. She went on to say that she was demanding that those who dared mock her and other Congressweasels were to be hunted down by large dogs and bitten unless they stop it right this minute!

I’m kidding, of course. She didn’t really say anything about using the large dogs.

But she was quite serious and pompous about the fact that she has had it with people making fun of Congressweasles.

Ahem… Members of Congress.

It’s always a remarkable thing when our elected “representatives” seem to know less about the Constitution they take an oath to uphold and defend than say, a drunken gibbon. The gibbon, by the by, is not a member of the great apes, and – as far as I know – does not actually imbibe. Certainly not nearly as a much as most Congresspeople do*. 

What is even more remarkable is an astonishing archeological find this past week in North Carolina that reminds us – as if we needed it again – that criticizing and mocking our “leaders” is pretty much an American pastime, dating back to before there was the United States of America, complete with a Congress full of clowns and buffoons to be mocked in the first place…


*Sorry, that was a bit of sarcastic twitting on my part**.


**To “twit” is to be intentionally insulting. I learned this fact when reading about John Wilkes and his North Briton #45 Newsletter which was full of intentionally insulting barbs aimed at King George III, which is more or less the point of this entire episode: “Why Frederica Wilson shut just STFU.”

The Free Exercise Thereof



The State of California once tried to pass a law limiting what a person could say about certain social issues. That law ended up going nowhere, but now, the state Legislature is debating ACR-99, a concurrent resolution which supposedly encourages religious leaders to address LGBT issues “from love” instead of any given religious belief.

Now, when the religious try to enforce their beliefs on me through the use of legislation or orders, I object.

So what should be my response to a government which seeks to tell religious leaders what they should – or should not – say from their pulpits?


 

Accountability



It’s no big surprise to anybody who has been around the show for more than a week that I despise people like AJ, and even to a lesser degree Hannity. The reason is simple – they are not about thinking, they are about shocking people and confusing them into believing nonsense.

Like AJ, the Hal Turner “Show” decided to spread a great big lie. The problem is that (a) he knew it was a lie and (b) he didn’t give a rats behind about the people who could be hurt by his lie. It’s the worst part of Talk Radio… the nutjobs who are more interested in spreading manure than any actual information to the sheeple who won’t think for themselves. Then ask them for money.

The sadder act is that there will be no accountability for his lie…
