Jake Johnson wrote the following today in commondreams.org.
“With their passage of a deeply unpopular $1.5 trillion tax cut bill on Thursday, House Republicans did their part in ‘paving the way for the greatest transfer of wealth from regular people to the super-rich in modern American history,’—a move that sparked a flood of outrage from progressive activists and lawmakers who vowed to mobilize and do everything in their power to ‘kill the bill.'”
For some time now I’ve said, often out loud that there are three reasons to be a Republican today. The first is you are a millionaire or better a billionaire. Second, you are a bigot/racist and hate anyone who doesn’t think, act or look like you. And third, you are stupid.
Every time I would say number three I felt that the word “stupid” was a bit harsh. A few times In would ameliorate the statement by saying “ignorant” instead of stupid. Today, because I felt I didn’t know the dictionary definition of “stupid” I looked the word up in two dictionaries.
Although one of the meanings was “lacking in normal intelligence,” most of the other meanings were, I felt, appropriate to tar Republicans in the third category. Of course, each category is not mutually exclusive. One can be all three. For example, Trump fits into all three categories. I also believe that he also is described by the “lacking in normal intelligence definition.
I won’t feel guilty say “stupid” any longer since I think it justified. Especially in one dictionary, it said, “not using one’s brain or logic.”
Now with the “tax cut” bill the house just passed we can have a subcategory for the rich people and their lackeys, the politicians—GREED!
We can also attach lying sacks of shits too. Imagine trying to convince anyone but stupid people that this bill will benefit the middle class with their outright lies makes you wonder has Congressional Republicans always been this corrupt since they switched political thinking with the Democrats, especially since Ronald Reagan two terms.
Their mendacity is legion. How they can shave without being tempted to cut their own throats for being so corrupt is beyond me. Congressmen/congresswoman, ” You’ve done enough. Have you no sense of decency, sir? At long last, have you left no sense of decency?” This was said to Joseph McCarthy by Joseph N. Welch a U.S. Army legal counsel toward the end of the Army/McCarthy Hearings. It was a true witchhunt to find communist in 1950s society.
The words still echo with a truthfulness that should haunt those that want to give their benefactors, the rich, the ability to keep more of their money at the expense of the people of the United States. The people who drive our economy—the middle class.
Those politicians that voted for this abomination of a bill wearing their American Flag lapel pin should be tarred and feathered and run out of Washington D.C. on a Judas Goat.
Herein ends my rant for today.
