Now the Tea Baggers, Birthers, Deathers, Gunners, and other nutbags are taking on global climate change legislation by pretending they are grassroots. But the pay-no-attention-to-that-man-behind-the-curtain moment has already happened. It has been revealed that this new movement is connected to Dick Armey’s FreedomWorks and the oil industry.
Somebody had better be setting a trap for the Congresspersons who are against the public option and for the agenda of the oil industry’s “Energy Citizens” or “Climaters” or “Changers”. I want to be the first to come up with a name for them.
On another note:
This guy with the semi-automatic assault rifle and the semi-automatic assault smile he had on his face in Phoenix on Monday was black. This must have some in the pro-gun, anti-Obama camp worried because what was once, seemingly, an all-white club—the hate-Obama-because-he’s-African-not-American—has been invaded by a black guy. This is almost like the Klan being invaded by a black guy who also hates blacks. Now these gun people will use this guy as proof they’re not racist against Obama while 95 percent of these Gunners will form a separate group and the rest will learn not to be racist, just paranoid.
What would have been great would have been this guy saying he was Muslim. That would have made all the difference. And it would have been so funny to see the looks on all those pro-gun guys’ faces. They would have wrestled him to the ground and taken that killing machine away from him.
What I would love to see is we put all these idiots in a large auditorium and tell them all that there are some secret Nazi Socialists among them and if they can if they can find them they can go home. They’d all beat the shit out of each other because they’re so filled with rage and paranoia which equals zealot.
Obama had better be able to sink one from center court because the Republicans and the insurance industry are not letting him inside.
By the way, what do Dick Armey and Dick Cheney have in common politically other than being Republicans?
They’re both Dicks.
Ha ha. Oh, sometimes I even amuse (not) myself.
A scattered blog, today. Sorry. I spent a lot of time today building the eviction case against the tenant I mentioned yesterday. That can be very draining. And I had the cops in my building again today, this time asking about a former tenant.
But back to greater and lesser realities:
I applaud the Barney Frank exchange today about Nazi health care. I need argumentativeness from Democrats to feel like there’s hope.
I was once accused by a tenant of being a Nazi. I think I had given him a notice about not breaking into the mailboxes. I cannot remember exactly. But this guy was such a nutcase that he permanently disabled himself rather than ask for my help.
He knocked on the door of the on-site maintenance guy and asked him if he had keys for his apartment. The maintenance guy said no because he had just woken up, he did not have the keys with him—they were in the office.
Before the tenant could be questioned further he ran away. The maintenance guy called me. I was on the third floor, so I went back to the office and left the door open thinking he would come to me in the office. I waited and waited and finally I heard a loud slam, followed by a loud “Fuck!”. I ran out the back door and around to the side of the building and found the tenant lying on his side on the concrete walkway. I called out his name. He said, “Jim, please help me!”
He had fallen off an eight inch wide board that he put from the roof of the building next door into the window of his apartment. As he was scooting across the board, his butt hit a nail and he lost his balance. He fell about twenty feet onto the concrete, shattering both his ankles, breaking his hip and permanently disabling himself and his ability to walk.
All he had to do was follow the proceeds and be a little patient. But he was so hyper that I was evil that he became a victim of his own delusion.
And with that…on to the Changers!
