Fund This

Every time I turn around, somebody is using GoFundMe to raise a bundle of ready cash. The ones whose tragic stories are reported on the Internet are often members of the group we refer to as trailer trash.

Bad Hair Week?

The 21st century Republican Party is designed to attract voters who are conservative and (a) white, or (b) old, or (c) religious, or (d) rural, or (e) all of the above. As percentages of the total U.S. population, the demographic groups that dominate the GOP are shrinking or, at best, stagnant.

If the GOP wants to remain a national (rather than regional) force, it's absolutely critical that its core constituents turn out en masse on election day. Among people who are old, white, rural, religious conservatives, fear and hate are powerful motivating forces. The GOP goal is to make sure the base is constantly agitated and itching to vote.
The party leaders relentlessly pound on issues like gun control and the war on Jesus to make sure their single-issue voters are lining up at the polls.

This has been a bad hair week for Republicans on the issues. First it was racism and the Confederate flag. Then it was the Supreme Court's 6-3 decision in favor of Obamacare. Now the Supremes have upheld same sex marriage.

On the plus side, the Republican base will definitely be itching to vote next year.

Insantorum

The shootings in a black church in South Carolina was another violent act in the war against Christianity? Are you kidding me?

The level of stupidity required to be a conservative Republican in good standing these days is staggering. Really, these are the dumbest motherfuckers on the planet.

Legislating

In Texas, we have goobers and religious fanatics electing other goobers and religious fanatics to run the state government. The goddamned train wreck that ensues shouldn't surprise anyone.
