Childhood Dreams of Science

December 27, 2012

Reminded me of the potential we all have within.

Put away the guns though. Lock them up and seal them and throw away the key. This kid may just have saved all of your lives. 

I believe in our future, together.

Words cannot express…

My mom…

December 18, 2012

My mom was a teacher. She retired after 30+ years. She worked hard and diligently at her craft, and while I never experienced it first hand in a classroom setting, she seemed to be a damn fine teacher. Mostly during my teenage years, she taught 3rd grade at elementary school. 

***

I always had respect for my mom for putting up with what seemed to me as some of the endless crap she got not only from students, but from parents as well. Her time working for the government as a elementary school teacher led me to come to the conclusion that the public school system has not failed us, but rather the public has failed us.

Which brings me to some comments I’ve seen around the internet, and on political talk shows.

“Just arm the teachers.”

“Just let God back in schools.”

“Need to get rid of that N**** president.” 

If anyone thinks this will solve our growing mass killing/suicide phenomena as of late, they are severely misinformed. 

I’m not going to spend too much time on this. I can only tell you what I know. I love my mom, and thank her for her years of service to Louisiana children. She never needed to fire a gun or didn’t have any use in owning one, probably because she wasn’t a coward like so many. She’s retired now, enjoying the fruits of her hard work.

Damn I love her, and I love my family. I love my daughter. I’ll be fucking God damned if I see her attend class where the teachers have fully automatic assault rifles in their closets just waiting for the next massacre, meanwhile not learning anything while trying to make scientific sense out of the Book of Genesis. 

We are better than this. We as Americans have been tricked. I sure hope it’s not too late, but my optimism grows weary. 

It’s not about us. It’s about children who are helpless and need us, now more then ever. 

I want to stop thinking about it, just like everyone else, but we are well beyond that luxury. My kid, our kids, all of our lives are now on the line in a very real way. 

-Assault weapons ban (renewing the expiration) High magazine bans.

-Access to hospitals, mental health, and the expansion of Medicare

-Getting money out of politics (wolf-pac.com)

-Laws that require persons that need high caliber weapons to go through six weeks of intense boot camp military training.

-Ending the gun culture. Guns are not fun. They are not games. They don’t make you look cool and awesome. They make you look stupid. Like cigarettes. Guns are cigarettes.

***

I can’t stop thinking about this. It weighs heavy on my heart. It’s only my opinion, and it’s pretty obvious that my opinion means fucking squat. Keep killing each other out there and keep thinking you are safe when you go to malls, movies, parks, town hall meetings and schools. You aren’t safe, and the people that could make things better choose not to for no other reason than money. Welcome to America, enjoy your stay.

-Mad Mike

p.s. We have a lot to talk about BANKS next time around. 

Open letter to all 3.

December 16, 2012

3 of my contactable U.S. Leaders. My heart is still heavy:

 

U.S. Representatives, Senators, and President,

 

Recent events in CT have made me pause to reevaluate the safety of my children. As a party loosening gun restrictions as a hand out to your right wing base, not having the audacity to even mention that citizens perhaps shouldn’t have access to high powered assault rifles like those seen in most modern video games, and by simply closing your eyes hoping it goes away is indeed a national tragedy. I do not feel safe letting my child inside a public school system in fear of a maniac removing her from this earth. I do not feel safe going to see a popular movie at my local theater,  I do not feel safe shopping at a mall during Christmas time, and I do not feel safe attending a social event like a Sunday morning service at one of the many churches of my choosing. Gentlemen, I fear for my family’s safety. If something happened to my little girl after so many of these red alert scenarios, I can only suppose I would not be able to carry on. I can only assume it would be impossible to lift my head from my pillow. I would be paralyzed. Please, do something. Greater access to mental health and hospital services for everyone, renewing the assault weapons ban, laws that require persons with more than one gun go through military training boot camp scenarios with regular psychiatric check-ups, steps to remove the popularity of the pro gun culture and the courage to stand up to large corporations who don’t care one damn about the American people but rather their bottom line. Please, do something; Do anything.

Help us, please.

Written by a concerned dad.

-Mike, Kim & Zoey Burrow

Just an open letter. You don’t have to share my sentiment. Thank you for reading, however. 

Still Sad…

Today

December 14, 2012

I’m not going to try and make sense of today. I don’t care about the politics. I just want to say one simple thing.

If you are thinking about, contemplating a mass shooting…Do us all a favor. Take those guns you’ve been hoarding for so long,go inside the bathroom, lock the door, and kill yourself.

Save us all the trouble.

…..

God bless those innocents. God bless the kids.

ANOTHER DAY, ANOTHER LETTER!

December 10, 2012

Still no headway on the fiscal cliff discussions, so for that I will be writing my U.S. HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVE CONGRESSMAN CHARLES BOUSTANY JR. MD to explain to him that I stand with the President because I don’t want my family or my friends family be slammed with massive tax increases just because these guys can’t seem to bring themselves to bring tax rates on the TOP 2% of the country back to pre-Bush levels.

How do you write him? Easy! Just go to his website:

http://boustany.house.gov/contact-us/

Put your zip code in and fill out the form and tell him:

“I stand with the President of the United States! NO MORE GAMES!”

Here’s my example from today:

Writing you again! Looking all over the internet to see what you are saying about the fiscal cliff! Oh, I found something. You proposed to kick the can down the road. Wow! I am so surprised. No I’m not. Stop distorting the truth. EVEN THE TOP 2% GET A TAX CUT UP TO RATES OF $250,000 A YEAR PLUS GET ALL THE SPECIAL TREATMENTS OF LOOPHOLES AND DEDUCTIONS!! Quit the game. My friends all know that if the fiscal cliff happens, it goes up on the poor, the middle class and the ultra rich. So your proposal doesn’t hold up. End the Bush Tax Cuts. Stop the charade. Lay off the Koch! I WILL BE WRITING YOU EVERY SINGLE DAY! Get used to it!

Here’s an interview by our LOCAL FOX NEWS AFFILIATE, KPEL 96.5 (YUCK):

http://kpel965.com/congressman-boustany-explains-fiscal-cliff/

Until there is headway, let’s keep writing him. It’s already a done deal. Take your pick:

Do you want taxes to go up on just the top 2% of our wealth earners,

or

Do you want taxes to go up on the top 2% and everyone else (100%) and have massive cuts in everything from Military to schools to police to firefighters to universities to R&D to the list goes on and on.

IT’S ALL IN THE HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES HANDS! WRITE YOUR CONGRESSMAN!

Stay classy!

-Mad Mike

p.s. According to this, they will take vacation next week unless the Senate overrides them! LET’S HOPE YOU HAVE TIME TO PUT TOGETHER A TOWN HALL IF YOU DO GO ON VACATION, DR. BOUSTANY! I’d love to ask you a few questions!

http://hobnobblog.com/wordpress/wp-content/uploads/2012/07/2012_CongressionalCalendar_WEB.pdf

Tomorrow, Dec 8th.

December 8, 2012

Tomorrow is Dec 8th 2012.

It will be one of the most difficult decisions I will have to make while voting.

Wait, tomorrow is an election? >Yep!<

This time around, I don’t have the advantage (call it what you will) of a two party system. I will be voting one Republican in; and I will be voting for Charles Boustany Jr.

Believe me, I don’t really want to. It even pains me to do so. Boustany has MUCH more money, funded directly by Republican Super PACs that want to see such a wimpy shell like Boustany just open up his throat and let the money pour right in. He DOES live in River Ranch, after all, and we all know what kind of people they got living back there! 😉

Doctor MD Boustany Jr., SIR, I will be writing you letters continually throughout this term if you are lucky enough to be voted in by the people. I encourage you this time around to read it, to think about it, and to respond, leave a comment or address to me a letter that speaks from soul rather then the throat.

As for Jeff Landry, well.. He is a TEA Party favorite. I’ll just leave it there.

No, I won’t. No more fucking LOONS. Jeff Landry, you suck worse then Dr. Boustany and the GOP, and believe me; It can’t get any worse than that, except it actually could. You sir scare me worse then Boustany retaining his seat, and that really says something.

Go home, you aren’t grown up enough.

***

David Vitter, I’m not letting you off the hook either. I want to know NOW if you had a chance to analyze Glass-Stegal and would encourage you to work in tandem with Elizabeth Warren and others in the immediate future so we DO NOT have a cataclysmic financial crisis event like in 2008. I implore the both of you, Doctor; Mr. Vitter, please. Do the right thing.

I think of a timeless saying when I consider the ass loads of money that is flowing towards you two and how much of a dense fog that tends to create, and I think of what my Dad used to tell me when my hormones were running wild exactly like how yours now are. He said:

“Think with your head, not with the head of your dick.”

I can’t think of better, more golden advice for you two fine upstanding gentlemen to receive.

🙂

Good day, gentlemen,and good day out there, everyone!

Stay mad, stay Rad, & Stay engaged!

Keep Calm, and Have Fun!

GOP Sugar Daddy!

December 5, 2012

Bobby Jindal met with the GOP’s favorite sugar daddy of all time!

With Kasich, McConnell and Adelson! BFF’s forever!! You know he’s under investigation for bribery of political officials right? Oh, yeah… You don’t give a damn.

HEY JINDAL, RESPOND TO MY F&^%ING LETTER! It’s on this fucking blog!! IT’S BEEN OVER ONE YEAR!!

I swear.

Entitlements!!!!

November 28, 2012

Guys, we won a battle. A battle, one single battle. President Obama and a wave of new Democratic leaders won election, so that 3 ring ass clown circus is behind us. The Grand War however, is extremely far from over.

What is the Grand War?

In one word, it is greed.

Greed consumes so much of everything it has surpassed the realm of lunacy and is now directly in the octagon of complete fantasy. I talk about fantasy and living in fantasy land a lot when it comes to Republicans and conservatism, but this is really the point. It all comes to a head here.

So, why do I use the term “Grand War”? Is there a war that I am somehow not aware of?

Well, yes and no. There is a war being fought. A war on class. Class warfare.

Oh right, you’ve heard about this right? Poor, preferably black Americans sitting at the welfare trough slurping up their government checks asking for more and more and more, right? Yeah, we’ve heard of those people! LAZY N——-!!

Nope. Far from the truth. In fact, EXTREMELY far from the truth.

The REAL welfare queens in this country is the ultra rich. The greedy, super, ultra rich that if there is a hell or any form in the afterlife, THEY WILL BE THERE. Why do I say that?

These people do not want to give back in any form or fashion to the country that made them so great.

Let’s look at Wal-Mart. We shop at Wal-mart most of the time. No big deal, the prices are low and it’s a one stop shop. It’s convenient for us and I think as a business model it works. The thing I don’t like about Wal Mart is that their workers work in a sometimes war like retail environment for a wage that barely makes it over the poverty line; But the REAL fucking problem I have with Wal-Mart is that after making obscene and massive profits that would make GOD HIMSELF stagger a bit, they force their workers to get government assistance for daily living needs, like food stamps or medicaid with no real benefits to write home about.

Let’s think about what this means. We as taxpayers subsidize Wal-Mart’s workforce to make it even cheaper for them so they can turn any even MORE of a sick and massive profit.

Hate welfare queens? Hate the FUCK out of Wal-Mart.

Look at this quote from Bernie Sanders, one that ranks 100% true on politifact.com (Too bad so many other politicians cannot claim that honor):

Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders, an independent who caucuses with Democrats, tweeted a startling statistic to his followers on July 22, 2012: “Today the Walton family of Walmart own more wealth than the bottom 40 percent of America.”

http://www.politifact.com/truth-o-meter/statements/2012/jul/31/bernie-s/sanders-says-walmart-heirs-own-more-wealth-bottom-/

The WalMart heirs own more wealth then the bottom 40% of the country. Why stop there? WHY NOT JUST GO FOR THE FULL 50 FUCKING PERCENT!!!

Now before you tell me, well Mike, you just don’t understand… Walmart needs to do that to retain their low prices that most of us enjoy every day, let me point you to an almost exact same business model…. one of COSTCO.

So what makes Costco so successful? Arguably the biggest difference is how the retailer treats its workers. Walk into any Costco and look at the name tags. Chances are you will read the phrases “since 2002,” “since 1999” and “since 1995.” Costco workers get paid very well compared to their counterparts at chains including Walmart. In fact, employees working on the floor can make a salary that reaches the mid-$40,000 range; not bad for someone who starts working for the company out of high school. And while the vast majority of Costco’s employees are not unionized (most of those are legacy employees from Price Club that the Teamsters represent), over 80 percent have competitively priced health insurance plans. The outcome includes more productive workers, lower turnover and for what it’s worth, relatively high job satisfaction.

***

Costco’s average pay, for example, is $17 an hour, 42 percent higher than its fiercest rival, Sam’s Club. And Costco’s health plan makes those at many other retailers look Scroogish. One analyst, Bill Dreher of Deutsche Bank, complained last year that at Costco “it’s better to be an employee or a customer than a shareholder.”

Mr. Sinegal begs to differ. He rejects Wall Street’s assumption that to succeed in discount retailing, companies must pay poorly and skimp on benefits, or must ratchet up prices to meet Wall Street’s profit demands.

Good wages and benefits are why Costco has extremely low rates of turnover and theft by employees, he said. And Costco’s customers, who are more affluent than other warehouse store shoppers, stay loyal because they like that low prices do not come at the workers’ expense. “This is not altruistic,” he said. “This is good business.”

http://www.nytimes.com/2005/07/17/business/yourmoney/17costco.html?pagewanted=all&_r=1&#038;

This isn’t rocket science. Did IQ’s just drop sharply while I was away? To be a CEO and be a friend of Wall St., do you have to have massive experience of wearing your ass as your hat? WHY IS THIS SO FUCKING DIFFICULT?

Why should we as tax payers subsidize Walmart’s already obscene astronomical profits by allowing them to take massive advantage of their workers? Why should we pick up the medical emergency tabs on health care while they get trampled over on Black Friday? Why should we have to provide them with food stamps when the families that work there aren’t paid enough to provide adequate care for their families? WHY, WHY, WHY?

I guess the same reason why we continue to subsidize the Oil & Gas industry.

But I guess I’m just young, right? I just don’t get it. I’ve heard people tell me that before. They love to lay that one down on me.

Well I do fucking get it.

We don’t have a democracy. There is only one golden rule: The people with the gold makes the rules. It’s upsetting, it’s depressing, it fucking sucks– But it is reality. My dad was right. Everything always comes down to money.

But here’s the reality: the money is there. The money is there for EVERYONE to do well. For families, for children, for education, for police and firefighters and post office workers, salesmen and yes, even Wall St.

But you have to let go of your greed.

Which brings us to this deficit reduction grand bargain plan that’s being discussed in Washington D.C.

Watch this video.

Now this fucking ass clown is the very same asshole who along with all his ass clown friends crashed our entire fucking economy, and he has the audacity, nay THE BALLS to tell us how to run this whole debate.

ARE. YOU. FUCKING. KIDDING. ME?!?!

This problem is huge. It’s growing every single day. It’s on such a grandiose scale, that it’s very possible it may be too late to recover.

.. Seriously. These fucking roaches are coming out of the woodwork on this one. Having lost an election that was deemed not able to be lost with the implementation of Citizen’s United, Voter Suppression, Gerrymandering and SuperPACS, having blown essentially BILLIONS of dollars on one Presidential Campaign (just think where that money could of been better spent, hmmm too many to list here) and receive damn near nothing for it all, these ROACHES have their backs against the wall. They have to do something to make damn sure that the status quo stays exactly that. They don’t want anything to change!

At this point, right now, where we stand, we are taking from children,the poor, the elderly and middle class to subsidize greed. It’s sick, it’s immoral, it’s wrong, and it’s really fucking Un-American.

I want everyone to simply understand what has happened. Complete and utter fiscal irresponsibility in which normal tax payers had absolutely no say so for more then a decade, a bailout for Wall St. directly on the backs of tax payers with zero litigation, sky rocketing profits and CEO compensation, decades of war, and complete stagnation of normal middle class wages, cutting education and research and devolpment and (here’s the real fucking whopper) rivers of tears about the deficit  and proposals of cutting medicare and medicaid that directly impacts the poor and the seniors and children… Slashing almost EVERY social program, like job training, school grants, teachers, post office workers, PBS (Mitt Romney, FUCK YOU for this. Slam!!), child tax credits, home mortgage deductions, medicare, social security, roads, bridges, etc fucking etc. and all the while claiming that the wealthy, upper income earners are somehow an endangered species, like a bald eagle, and that we should protect them.

We should protect Wall St. They need more money.

GIVE. ME. A. FUCKING. BREAK.

You want to talk about welfare queens? You want to talk about getting something for nothing? You want to talk about an entitlement class? It’s RIGHT HERE!!

http://www.alternet.org/economy/9-greedy-ceos-trying-shred-safety-net-while-pigging-out-corporate-welfare

—->$FOLLOW THE MONEY!!$ <—-

The rich own us. It’s true, and they’ve been raping us as middle class people for a really long time. What do you think the point of all the propaganda is? FOX News? CNBC? Seriously?

I really hope President Obama and the new wave of Democratic Senators can snuff this out and retain “entitlements” for middle class workers. Now, why do I put that in quotes? We aren’t talking about money raining down from the sky while I sleep in my pajamas, we are talking child tax credits, home mortgage deductions, medicare and social security, education, protection, justice, streets, interstates, bridges, etc etc. .. just so the rich can have even MORE then the bottom 40% of the country. This isn’t playtime.

If you live in Fantasy Land, it would be best to sit this one out.

What the ultra wealthy have GOT to understand is that once the poor are hungry enough, they will eat the rich.

It’s only a matter of time.

Stay classy out there!

-Mad Mike

p.s.

Write your congressmen, tell him or her to stop living in FANTASY LAND and to start getting serious with the President of the United States.

One more thing:

I’ll leave you with an open door, if opened ever so slightly, just a crack that lets a single ray of light shine through, that of hope.

It’s a speech that proposes a Constitutional amendment on Citizens United, and a website for such a movement.

Good to be back.

November 18, 2012

Thank you! Thank you! Welcome back! It’s our first post since the annihilation and humiliation of one Willard “Mittingtons” Romney! I don’t care to gloat… Oh fuck it. Yes I do. Have a very nice, very long retirement. friend!

This election was a fucking disaster of epic proportions. I can’t even put it into words how ridiculous and obscene it actually was. I had been paying attention THE WHOLE FUCKING TIME, and let me tell you guys… My fucking god.

I watched President Obama set traps for Romney and the GOP to step in, and every step of the way, that is exactly what they did. It was like watching a blind man walk into a mine field. It was a disaster. Yet, it felt redeeming to watch such a shell of a man get utterly destroyed so decisively. Romney deserves absolutely ZERO sympathy from us or anyone else around him. The only thing he deserved was a loss served up on a silver platter, the same kind he’s used to eating on everyday. Needless to say, that is exactly what happened.

I was going to write this blog the very next day, but decided against it. Let me take a week off, I thought. Enjoy the air, take a victory lap… and then the news started up again.

The shit was just rolling down the mountain this whole week! So much shit… Alright, let’s get started.

(Libya is still in the news, if you want to read about that check out my previous entry)

2) Melissa Harris Perry, Gov. “Bobby” Jindal & 2016.

3) Stewart decimates O’Reilly (AGAIN)

First, Anonymous. Yes, the hacker group. Let’s get to the story.

Apparently Romney was sure of his victory. How sure? Enough to not write a concession speech:

http://www.washingtonpost.com/blogs/election-2012/wp/2012/11/06/mitt-romney-hasnt-written-concession-speech/

Enough to be so go ahead and purchase $25,000 worth of fireworks:

http://dailycaller.com/2012/11/09/the-romney-campaigns-disappointing-fireworks-display/

And we all remember the meltdown of Karl Rove over at FOX News.

Seems pretty cocksure of himself it would seem to the outside eye. Maybe it was just a optimistic attitude. Maybe they just got the polling wrong. Maybe they were just dense. Or maybe, just maybe, they knew it in their hearts that this was all wrapped up.

But, how could you be so sure? The consensus was it was a tight race, one that would go down to the wire. So why have such positive prospects about the outcome?

The answer is about as obvious as it gets. He meant to steal this election, just like in 2000, and some would even say 2004.

I won’t go into detail about ORCA or the rest of the specifics, but there was obviously a cyber plot at play… here, read this link and see what you may think.

http://motleynews.net/2012/11/16/anonymous-claims-to-have-hacked-into-karl-roves-orca-thus-stopping-his-vote-switching-2/

and the letter to Rove from Anon:

http://llwproductions.files.wordpress.com/2012/11/anon_rove_letter.pdf

What man was there for all 3 elections, with his fat ass head and heavy breathing? Karl “Human Ham” Rove. If this is true, it is a huge victory, and one I hope keeps the heat up on people THAT BREAK THE FUCKING LAW.

SEND THEIR ASS PACKING, TO GET PACKED, You know what I mean.

Love it!

Second. We live in Louisiana. Sure, it’s a red state. But it’s my state. I grew up here, and I love it. You can’t find people that are nicer, more accommodating, more generous, and more dumb. Seriously. Probably 75-85% of everyone I know that lives here also happens to live in complete fantasy world. They are so die-hard Republican down here it would make Rush Limbaugh blush. Yet, what do I hear from people on an almost daily basis when we talk politics?

“Bobby Jindal sucks.”

Most everyone I know despises Jindal, liberal and conservative, and they all have different reasons. I have my reasons as well. He did get high marks from me on his response to Hurricane Gustav and some of the others, but in contrast coming into office after Katrina, what Governor wouldn’t be completely freaked out by another hurricane, and so soon… So it was a little to be expected.

Some of the things I COMPLETELY disagree with him on is his school voucher program and his hard line stance on implementing the state health exchanges and other rules mandated by the Affordable Care Act, aka Obamacare. More on that later.

But ol’ Bobby has been eyeing a real whopper down the line. He’s been trying to burst through the national stage for quite some time now, like this really uncomfortable appearance as the “new face” of the Republican party during the 2009 response to President Obama’s State of the Union address:

Ugh.

So after Romney’s resounding defeat (thank the high heavens), my friend Bobby had a few choice words for the Republican party:

http://www.politico.com/news/stories/1112/83743.html?hp=f3

I love this story because like my Dad said, it’s amazing how quick you change your views when you have your ass handed to you.

So that leads us to this, Melissa Harris Perry’s open letter to Gov. Jindal. When my wife and I watched this, we were taken aback. It was a SCATHING smack down of such a sorry ass Governor, precisely because the truth fucking hurts.

http://www.mediaite.com/tv/melissa-harris-perrys-to-bobby-jindal-if-all-you-want-is-to-reach-higher-office-pull-a-palin-and-quit-now/

No, seriously. Watch it. It’s awesome.

Here’s an exerpt:

What you do care about is reaching higher office. And why not? Your term limited in Louisiana and the White House will have an opening in four years. So for you, it’s onto the next one, right? Looks like you’re 2016 machine is raring to go. Head of the Republican Governors Association? Check. Chastising the defeated Governor Romney for his gifts comments? Check. Calling on Republicans to stop being the “stupid party of dumbed-down conservatism” and encouraging them to reach out to a broader base? Check. Not bad for the national stage, Bobby.

But what about your own backyard? Those Louisianians without health insurance could benefit from the Medicaid expansion that President Obama’s Affordable Care Act would provide. Because in Louisiana, more than 68% of those Medicaid recipients are poor children. But you’d much rather lead 15 other states in massive resistance against so-called big government and tell your constituents “good luck” in the private sector. And speaking of the private sector, seems like you’d also like to sell off our kids’ education to the highest bidder. That educational voucher system you established — the largest one in the country, the one that gives vouchers to religious schools that teach creationism and allows them to keep their state funding even if their students fail basic reading and math tests, that one? We’re not fooled. This is not about reform. It is about, as the Interfaith Alliance wrote, your inability to distinguish between religious indoctrination and basic public education. And you think you might be just a little bit more suspicious of the whole private sector equals public good equation in the week when BP pled guilty to 14 criminal charges in connection with the Deepwater Horizon’s rig explosion just off our shores two years ago. You chastised President Obama’s energy policy by saying it was “subservient by-product of his radical environmental policy.” But even as our fragile coast loses a football field of protective wetlands every 38 minutes, you, Bobby, remain in favor of new drilling parcels, hydrofracking, and the keystone XL pipeline. Just who is the environmental radical?

This man doesn’t give a damn about you. If he did, you would sense it, like he cares. He doesn’t. He such a wimpy looking dude too, but if you read about him and never met him you would think he’s the most hard edge conservative leader this nation has ever seen, but I really don’t think he’s that much bigger then me. By all accounts, he’s been a disaster, but at least he hasn’t stolen tax payer money or been involved in some other scheme that I know of, at least not yet. But one thing is for damn certain: we are but a stepping stone for a man who has obviously caught the greed and power bug. Fitting since our state is shaped like a boot.

I do not want to see him in the White House, and the sooner he can get out of the Governor’s Mansion the better!!

p.s. I too wrote a letter to Jindal in response to the healthcare debacle that he seems to pride himself in. Here it is:

Dear Governor Bobby Jindal,

My name is Michael C. Burrow. I have a wife and a daughter. I have a corporate job that I achieved with higher education that I financed myself. We have health insurance, and we are in favor of the Affordable Health Care Act.

We are in favor of it because upon further review, we have concluded that it would lower our monthly premiums and protect us from being penalized from those who choose not to have health insurance. It would also protect our daughter from being denied coverage from preexisting conditions and would allow us to keep her covered during her collegiate years. We believe it would also benefit society among numerous ways by keeping people healthy and not clogging the emergency rooms.

Indeed, when I was younger and still in College, I broke my ankle, and because we could not afford insurance and we were not on my parents’ coverage, my wife and I had to travel back and forth to Earl K. Long hospital because the other hospitals refused to see us.

I will not divulge details, but know this: This part of our life was a living hell, driving back and forth and having to wait in waiting rooms for days on end, wasting weeks at a time only to be charged the full uncovered price by the hospital because well, I worked overtime, and as a result, made too much money to qualify for any sort of governmental assistance.

We are writing this letter to explain that we do not like when you and other members of your party play politics with such an important cultural issue. Month to month is a struggle for us as we are continually crushed under our medical bills of the past and four years later, we are still paying them. If something like President Obama’s Affordable Health Care law was in place when these things happened to me, our situation would be wildly different then it is now.

Enclosed is a picture of me, graduating from College at UL with a Bachelor in Arts & Humanities with my broken ankle as a reminder to you and others that this law is important to me and my family. Thank you for your time.

And of course, no response… Nothing has changed in his behavior. Am I surprised? Not really. He doesn’t give a fuck about me or my family, and he won’t give a fuck about yours either.

Good luck in those primaries, Piyush.

Third! Knockin ’em down.

O’Reilly vs. Stewart. Again.

Stewart FUCKING KILLS O’Reilly. AGAIN.

Is this getting old for him? You think having your ass stomped for 2 hours on a internet streaming televised debate would be enough, or the thousands of times he and FOX News gets shredded on the Daily Show, the Mayor of Bullshit Mountain would learn…

Nope! Just watch the clip. Just watch it. Please. It’s AWESOME.

Fourth!

Romney gifts. Millionaires and Billionaires wasted such an extravagant amount of money on Romney’s campaign and they are PISSED. They want answers! Who is gonna give us straight talk?

Oh good Romney’s on the phone! Get in on this and let’s hear it!

Yeah, so apparently the only reason President Obama won was not because Romney was the most terrible candidate in a long time, not because of secret videos decrying half of America, not because of the never ending pivot on positions, not the endless etch a sketch moments, not the endorsement of far right lunatics, not the promise to balance the budget and simultaneously cut taxes for corporations and millionaires, not the promise to repeal health care reform, not the disdain Romney had for ordinary people, not promising to cut Big Bird to fix the deficit, not the endless gaffes during oversea trips, not the promise to triple our already bloated military budget, not the promise to not only go to war with Iran but also China, not the promise to ignore fact-checkers, not the fact he got it completely wrong about President Obama and Benghazi during the second debate, not the way he carried the air of an entitled pompous asshole douche bag, not the lies, not the smears, not the distortions, not him living in fantasy world, and surely not his unwillingness to release his tax returns for more then 2 years (which by the way, I am still really interested in seeing) no… none of that. The reason he lost was the fact that President Obama promised minorities free things, and you know those minorities!! Always wanting their free food stamp welfare FEMA accepting lazy good for nothing unemployment collecting shit stain MOOCHERS!!

Oh, but there’s one little problem about that theory.

Oops!

This is too easy.

Lastly, I really hope Allen West shuts the fuck up and goes home where he belongs and not  be allowed within 500 miles from the United States Capitol. This guy makes Michelle Bachman look sane. Florida, you did the right thing this election. I am so proud of you. Apparently, West has different plans. God damn it. Good luck, FL. You deserve so much better then West & Scott. You’ll be in my prayers.

2014. It’s coming guys, and it’ll be here before you know it. It has not stopped, the crazy train is still roaring. The chance to exterminate the roaches is coming in the form of the 2014 midterm elections. Never give up. Let’s do this. Let’s give President Obama the tools he needs to pull us out of the ditch. He needs us again. So sit back, take a sip of your drink, CO & WA spark up, and let’s kick out all of the Republican ass-clowns that have destroyed damn near everything. We can do this, all it’s gonna take is some focus.

Remember this motto: “Do like Mike B, and VOTE D!!! Down the line.”

See ya’ll then!
