GOP: Snakes on a (jobs) plan

This would be hilarious if these idiots weren’t serious.

Democrats and Republicans all agree that the nation needs to move on a jobs agenda. And Republicans have a new plan: unleash the reins of snake commerce.

GOP members of the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee today called attention to a proposed regulation that would restrict the transportation and importation of nine types of snakes, including the Burmese Python.

In a new report entitled “Broken Government: How the Administrative State has Broken President Obama’s Promise of Regulatory Reform,” GOP members cited the proposed snake ban as one of seven examples of red tape choking off job growth in an already ailing economy.

Are you freaking kidding me, you childish piece of Republican excrement?

You know the jobs bill President Obama has been exhorting Congress to pass “right away”? The “American Jobs Act”?

Congressman Louie Gohmert introduced a two-page bill before any Democrat had introduced the President’s job bill and titled it “The American Jobs Act of 2011″.

I’m not shitting you. This childish piece of Republican excrement took the name that President Obama had already titled his bill and used it for his own bill. All his bill does is repeal the federal corporate income tax (which is obviously going NOWHERE.)

It’s stunning. This man is a U.S. Congressman and he’s is literally acting like a child.…

Who Said THAT??? – Most awesomest quote of the day edition

So, who said this?

These people who are making a big deal out of gay marriage? I don’t give a fuck about who wants to get married to anybody else! Why not?! We’re making a big deal out of things we shouldn’t be making a deal out of.

They go on and on with all this bullshit about ‘sanctity’ — don’t give me that sanctity crap! Just give everybody the chance to have the life they want.

I was an Eisenhower Republican when I started out at 21, because he promised to get us out of the Korean War. And over the years, I realized there was a Republican philosophy that I liked.

The GOP will filibuster ANYTHING supported by Democrats, even disaster relief

The GOP will filibuster ANYTHING supported by Democrats. Think I’m exaggerating? I’m not. Here’s proof. On Monday, they filibustered a bill that would fund disaster relief to areas recently devastated by hurricanes, tornadoes, earthquakes and flooding. The bill passed with a 53-33 majority but — BING! — it was a cloture vote meant to end a Republican filibuster so it needed 60.

They did eventually pass the bill but, even then, 38 Republicans voted against it. Here’s the rogue’s gallery of heartless bastards:

Alexander (R-TN)
Ayotte (R-NH)
Barrasso (R-WY)
Boozman (R-AR)
Burr (R-NC)
Chambliss (R-GA)
Coats (R-IN)
Coburn (R-OK)
Cochran (R-MS)
Corker (R-TN)
Cornyn (R-TX)
Crapo (R-ID)
DeMint (R-SC)
Enzi (R-WY)
Graham (R-SC)
Grassley (R-IA)
Hatch (R-UT)
Hutchison (R-TX)
Inhofe (R-OK)
Isakson (R-GA)
Johanns (R-NE)

Let ‘em DIE!

This is where the Libertarian rubber meets the road:

Wolf Blitzer: You’re a physician, Ron Paul, you’re a doctor. You know something about this subject. Let me ask you this hypothetical question. A healthy 30-year-old young man has a good job, makes a good living, but decides I’m not going to spend 200 or $300 a month because I’m healthy, I don’t need it. But something terrible happens, all of a sudden he needs it. Who will pay if he goes into a coma, who pays for that?

Ron Paul: In a society that you accept welfarism and socialism, he expects the government to take care of him.

Throwing the poor off the welfare rolls in Michigan based on a myth

Last week, Michigan governor Rick Snyder signed into law a bill that ends welfare benefits for 41,000 Michiganders. Until then, there was no limit to how long poor people in Michigan could receive benefits. The law ends payments after four years. Nearly 30,000 children are affected by this axe which will save the state $77.4 million annually, according to the Senate Fiscal Agency.

According to Rep. Ken Horn, who sponsored the bill, this will end the stampede of poor people flooding into Michigan to collect endless benefits.

Except that the idea that this is happening is a myth.

To hear state Rep.…

More on MI Senate Leader Randy Richardville’s attacks on teachers and municipalities

As I reported last week, GOP Senate Majority Leader Randy Richardville is out to make Michigan a right to work state, but only for teachers. He said so on Tim Skubick’s “Off the Record”. In an interview with MIRS news service, he went even further, ridiculously saying he doesn’t think teachers realize that Michigan is having economic problems.

Senate Majority Leader Randy Richardville(R-Monroe) said today he believes that other unions “get it” when making sacrifices in this current economic climate, but he wouldn’t include the Michigan Education Association (MEA) in that group.

“I don’t think the teachers’ union understands where we are,” he said.

Just in case there’s any doubt the GOP is intentionally harming America for political gain…

Here’s your damn PROOF:

“Obama is on the ropes; why do we appear ready to hand him a win?” said one senior House Republican aide who requested anonymity to discuss the matter freely. “I just don’t want to co-own the economy by having to tout that we passed a jobs bill that won’t work or at least won’t do enough.

In other words, the GOP won’t do anything that will help Americans and improve the economy. Why else would he characterize this as a “win” for the president?

Think the president’s jobs bill won’t help the economy? You’re wrong, according to Chief economist at Moody’s Analytics Mark Zandi:

Mark Zandi, chief economist at Moody’s Analytics, is frequently the go-to guy for both parties when it comes to analysis of various jobs proposals.…
