I’m heartened to see a corrupt and truly disgusting individual get booted on his keester.
His opponent David Brat has said repeatedly: “I’m not against business. I’m against big business in bed with big government.” Also saying: ”All of the investment banks, up in New York and DC, they should have gone to jail.” Hmm…..yea I agree 100%.
While I’m encouraged that a Republican can say something like that and win as a Republican, I prefer to wait and see what becomes of his populist slogans once he is elected and subject to the same fund-raising pressure as other incumbents; and GOP insiders crush him for attempting to take on powerful elites in Rome...er...I mean Washington.
Hopefully, this kind of ass-kicking is exactly the out-the-door policy ‘progressives’ start doing to get rid of the corrupt Democrats. Then, our country might have a chance.
The Penis Bros attempt to distract with flags, gays, terrorists and commies can't keep suppressing/disguising blatant criminality and cronyism forever. But then again, there is an overabundance of the Jack Dennis types, so maybe they can.
One can only dream…
A round of applause Clay. Well done. A perfect depiction of the
chaos wrought by combining evil & incompetence. .
Good cartoon today Clay. As have been some other recent offerings.
I’ve posted this before but today’s subject warrants a reprise:
It’s high time the populace of this country to finally admit to themselves (as I have) that the United States government, our government - “A nation, conceived in Liberty. A government of the people, by the people, for the people" has been transformed into a vast criminal enterprise, whose sole purpose is to provide the means by which the predator class legalizes and carries out its program of fraud, theft, exploitation, conquest and domination. We now live in a land with a lawless (un)-representative government; where the powerful and important make, then break the law, and never be brought to account.
What’s being passed off come 2016 elections amount to no more than a competition between debased and rancid crime families for temporary supremacy in the role of head of the District of Columbia's chief Mafia consigliores’ and enforcers.
Our vaunted leaders are no more than the vanguard of an army of brazen and soulless Mafiosi bureaucrats who think nothing of engaging in acts of fraud, theft, mass murder, torture, brutality, and the literal destruction of planet earth in order to feed their insatiable lust for wealth beyond the dreams of avarice, as well as the deviant joy that all sociopathic/imbecilic personalities experience from the infliction of suffering in others.
According to the Declaration of Independence, governments "derive their just powers from the consent of the governed" -- alas, today that "consent" amounts to nothing more than the sheep being ‘allowed’ a choice of whether to appoint a blue wolf or a red wolf, chosen - not by consensus, but fiat by elites as representatives/guardians of the flock.
If that reality is to ever change, it will have to come from outside accepted channels of political redress (tax strike anyone?), which as things currently stand amount to no more than the plank strapped precariously over the sea. It matters not that you are cast into the azure deep, for the pirate ship of state already has your booty.
A quote from Kafka's "The Trial" comes to mind:
“It is not necessary to accept everything as true, one must only accept it as necessary. A melancholy conclusion,” says Josef. “It turns lying into a universal principle.”
Pretty cute Clay. I'll bet every little kid has asked that question once in their lives.
I know you conservative types couldn't wait to throw down the lazy/Liberal comparison, but I think a more apt metaphor would be the little boy as a defense contractor. Mommy being us of course.
So. ”BO completely fooled you libs.” That….is a true statement. Whereas ”BO is a fool.” That…is not a true statement. Obama is a fraud, a vacuous opportunist and is one of the greatest political con men in American history - but not a fool.
Welcome to America’s post Constitutional era.
Oh yea, don't forget to call or write your representatives and say NO to the TPP.
Since you decided to make the blanket statement that ”there was no fraud” may I suggest a video that might change your mind - or at the very least raise an eyebrow. It’s called “Hacking Democracy”. It’s pretty eye opening. Link is below. It is about an hour and a half.
Look you blithering idiot. If you’re going to go the First Amendment route then quote it correctly, and try to understand founders meaning, intent and function. Not some mealy mouthed pious bullsh!t.
‘Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.’
Thomas Jefferson, *”I contemplate with sovereign reverence that act of the whole American people which declared that their legislature should 'make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof,' thus building a wall of separation between Church & State.”
The reason liberals don’t quote the 1st Amendment as loudly and as often as your kind spout scripture is we know its meaning, intent and function. Something you cannot bring yourself to bear.

If he was there Ikeithlu, at least we know where he got his acid.
I reiterate a question I posed earlier. Why this need to pray in public? Didn’t your own Christ tell you that it gives you no reward other than getting to look or feel pious in front of other humans? Not a single Christian has addressed this point so far, likely because they don't know how.
Did you really go to church to 'hook up' Ikeithlu? Was it 'Our Lady of Mammalian Protuberances'?
He he he - I knew it (“practicing Atheist”) would come up.
How often have we heard the patently absurd proclamation: ”avowed practicing Atheist”, as if it’s another religion?” Well Conservative, maybe it is - the same way that creationism is a science, god grants us free will (but will be punished severely for using it) or Islam is a religion of peace; In other words – when language no longer has meaning.
Atheism is a belief/religion? Really?!?! Who do we worship and who’s going to smite us if we don’t? And to that effect, a country with freedom ‘OF’ and ‘FROM’ religion shouldn’t tacitly condone belief in fairy tales or obedience (public prayer).
Atheism doesn’t take childish offense over trivialities. It doesn’t protect sex-offenders, nor treat women like chattel. There are no ‘secular’ schools teaching atheism to children as a belief system. Nor does atheism require anyone to tithe part of their income to keep a few contemptuous flimflammers in comfort. So you see it could never begin to qualify as a religion.
People like Conservative, Caddy and some others commenting here see an evil, dark, atheist nightmare where religion has been crushed and if we’re not careful, transform into immoral savages - or liberals. But the fact of the matter is this; the greatest believers are the greatest tyrants. This is especially true of Islam.

At any rate, I take my stand with them. Any Day!
