Scott Walker is Worse than a Chump… He’s an “Ignoranus”

Filed under: politics,USA — 01varvara @ 00.00

Here’s the course charted by “Captain” Walker for the state of Wisconsin… will someone start a recall petition, already?

Get a load of this:

On a prank call that quickly spread across the Internet, Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker was duped into discussing his strategy to cripple public employee unions, promising never to give in, and joking that he would use a baseball bat in his office to go after political opponents.

This guy is the Blue-Ribbon Prize cretin of all pols that I’ve ever seen… and I’ve seen more than one cretinous shmidiot in nearly six decades of life. This preening POS ought to resign… effective immediately. He doesn’t even screen his phone calls effectively… what kind of “leader” is he? Let’s see… he spent through all the accumulated surplus of the state of Wisconsin in one mad spending spree… he made a loud public declaration that he was going to break the unions in his state… he threatened to call out the National Guard… now, he boasts that he’s gonna “use a baseball bat in (my office) to go after political opponents”. This isn’t Iron Ike… who led the US Army to victory on the Western Front in World War II… this is Dropout Scott… who flunked college, refused to serve in the forces, and was a Think and Grow Rich-reading high-pressure salesman.

This is farcical. This is comedic. Scott Walker has shot his political future to dust. Well… it’s all over save for the shouting… the players of the Super Bowl-winning Green Bay Packers are on record as opposing him and his idiotic schemes.

I know what John Boehner and Mitch McConnell are saying sotto voce in the District, “Who shall rid us of this turbulent salesman?” Remember, there’s a reason why salesmen are hated more than lawyers are. Salesmen don’t know when to quit, and they’re usually not the brightest bulbs in the pack either. Keep in mind the old Chinese saying, “Just as you don’t use the best metal to make nails, you don’t use the best men to make soldiers”… change it slightly to, “Just as you don’t use the best metal to make nails, you don’t use the best men to be salesmen”. That’s a perfect snapshot of contemporary America. I’ve never met a salesman that I would call cultured, let alone intelligent. Most would agree with me.

It’s time to put this sorry little road show to bed. After all, he’s told you, “I’ll take a baseball bat to my opponents”. God do help me… however, it just strengthens my resolve… this is what the contemporary Republican Party has degenerated into, and I refuse to vote for it, support it, or be quiet about it. Excuse me… this is too much of a muchness, and it tells me that anyone who supports the Republican Party after this is an enemy of all that’s good. We have to take a stand… it’s all I can stands, and I can’t stands no more.

“I’ll take a baseball bat to my opponents”… don’t forget that.

23 February 2011. A Picture is Worth a Thousand Words… A Salute on Defenders of the Motherland Day. Glory to Those Who Served!

Filed under: military,patriotic,Russian — 01varvara @ 00.00

This is a salute in honour of Defenders of the Motherland Day… in Russia, it’s unofficially “Men’s Day”, just as 8 March is International Women’s Day. In Russia, all able-bodied men serve in the forces, as this is their patriotic duty. I’ve noted that men who’ve served aren’t as bellicose or as violent as those who shirked their duty… interesting observation, that. Men who have faced war in the raw aren’t warmongers, nor do they wave the cudgel, nor do most wrap themselves in the flag. It takes a punk coward who refused their duty to do such things, I’ve found.

Clink a glass with a veteran or serving soldier today… THEY deserve praise and honour… they rarely get it. Why? I seem to notice that those who never served and never sacrificed noisily push their way to the front… THAT’S not right. Why are so many of them prominent members of the Republican extreme rightwing? That speaks volumes about their REAL patriotism…
