THE SATURDAY MODEST PROPOSAL: A FEW MARKETING IDEAS TO HELP THE GOP WITH THEIR PRESIDENTIAL ELECTILE DYSFUNCTION

Posted in 2016 ELECTIONS, 2016 US ELECTION, DONALD TRUMP, GOP, GOP 2016 CAMPAIGN, GOP AS A MINORITY PARTY, GOP MELTDOWN, TED CRUZ on 26/03/2016 by Fredrick Schwartz, D.S.V.J., O.Q.H. [Journ.]

It seems like it has been forever since the GOP occupied the White House doesn’t it? The GOP seems to be mired in the same swamp that the Democrats found themselves flailing in 1984 and 1988. Mondale and Dukakis were good men but presidential candidates? In hindsight, not so much. But as usual I am going tangential while simultaneously getting ahead of myself.

Obama reacts to Gingrich SC victory

The GOP base has grown tired of calling Barack Obama names and has left that buffet for the Elysian Fields of cannibalism. Yes, boys and girls the GOP has begun to use the same tactics they once used against Progressives on their own. Donald Trump has instigated a smear campaign against Ted Cruz via a scandalous, and untrue, account of marital infidelity published in the National Enquirer. That’s right the National Enquirer. This comes at the same time as a series of tweets that showed Heidi Cruz the wife of the GOP number two candidate side by side with Melania Trump. Well that’s not fair at all is it? I say that because number one the only reason Melania Trump is with Donald Trump is because he’s rich. Can we all agree on that? The two would have never met if he wasn’t so I think I win on that point. And as women married to conservative members of congress go Heidi Cruz is actually hot. Well in the same way that Kobe Bryant would be a superstar in the NBA over 35 game at next year’s All Star Game. Okay once again I digress.

Here is tip that will help the GOP get back on track and resolve the rifts within their own party and the gulf between Moderates and the three camps on the Right:

A politically branded ice cream flavor.

Everyone loves ice cream! Look how happy she is holding those sundaes! Her day is made! Okay enough exclamation points. They could come up with snappy patriotically nationalist names like “Border Wall Crunch” which would be vanilla with white chocolate sprinkles and a grey cone section that looks like cinderblock stuck on one side with a marzipan Mexican standing on the other side. Or maybe “Angry Voter” which would be vanilla with red white and blue sprinkles and a flaming cross [lit with Trump Vodka® made out of Popsicle sticks sitting prominently on top. The best one might actually “Cruz Cookie Dough Meltdown” a confection of vanilla ice cream vanilla cookie dough and vanilla sprinkles in a cone shaped like Melania Trump’s ass. That could united the GOP in minutes. And hey who doesn’t want to eat Melania Trump’s ass?

Melania Trump
In Hindsight

I have witnessed 15 campaigns for president since I was old enough to know what was going on and this year is the craziest I’ve seen. And that’s just on the GOP side. A race between Trump and Clinton will end in disaster for the GOP sending them once again back to the drawing board after the firing of Reince Priebus and calling in their political forensics team to do yet another election autopsy which will tell them they have to bring in more younger less white voters– and women. But we all know these are the things that the GOP doesn’t want to do. They want to be the party of the stupid, the angry, the bigoted, the intransigent screaming old fart, the mousy married middle aged white woman who is terrified of everything, the religious crackpot and the unstable gun owner. I knew the GOP would destroy itself before 2030 but I didn’t see Trump as the suicide bomber that would do the deed.

Pax Terra!

SOMETHING GOVERNOR KASICH SAID LAST NIGHT IN DETROIT GOT ME THINKING

Posted in 2016 US ELECTION, GOP 2016 CAMPAIGN, GOP MELTDOWN on 04/03/2016 by Diane Valencen, D.S.V.J., O.Q.H [Journ.], ArF J., M.F.

DIANE_TOMLINSON_6

Governor John Kasich last night made his case for being the only “adult on the stage” last night in the GOP debate saying that he didn’t want to get involved in the “scrums” of low ball politics being played out between Donald Trump and Senators Cruz and Rubio. That statement about the dead ball rugby play as a descriptive of the GOP race for the nomination in 2016 is very important. In rugby, a scrum is called for by the referee, to restart play especially in rugby union where the eight forwards link up on the referee’s direction and the scrum half rolls the ball through the tunnel. The side which gains pushing advantage wins possession.

Scrum-Pumas-All-Blacks

The important word in all of that descriptive is referee. In this GOP race there is no referee only booing or cheering fans to chart the direction of the match. It is not even about the ball anymore because Trump has changed the rules. No matter what foul he commits, not even limited to making a euphemistic allusion to the relative connection between his hand size and penis size [Imagine if Barack Obama had done that in 2008?–C.E. esq.], Trump will not go to the sin bin. Instead, his fans award him more points in the form of more votes and thereby more delegates toward the magic number of 1,237.

Trump dumped at convention

Governor Kasich, I get your point, as I get Mitt Romney’s points he made yesterday. But Unlike Kasich, Romney tried to play the game with no referee that Trump has been winning since last summer. This is a recipe for failure and the only ones that will suffer will be the GOP establishment both during this process and in the general in November. A scrum has organization and oversight. The GOP race this year with Trump’s nativist allure, pandering to bigots, misogyny and his often outright denial of things he’s on tape saying has taken the Grand Old Party and turned it into an episode of Big Brother. At the end of the day it will not be the American people who decide who the GOP nominee is it will be the GOP establishment in Cleveland who will take all of his hard work of making the Trump brand a political movement and dash it against the rocks by elevating Speaker Paul Ryan as the “brokered” candidate. This will happen no matter if Trump’s hands and his penis are appropriately large.

BREAKING NEWS: CRUZ CAMPAIGN DISCRIMINATES AGAINST ACTRESS AMY LINDSAY FOR HER SOFTCORE EROTIC FILM PAST

Posted in AMY LINDSAY, CONSERVATIVE RESISTANCE TO FACT CHECKING, GOP 2016 CAMPAIGN, GOP AS A MINORITY PARTY, GOP MELTDOWN, TED CRUZ on 12/02/2016 by Diane Valencen, D.S.V.J., O.Q.H [Journ.], ArF J., M.F.

Of course this will not come as a shock to anyone who has been watching politics in America in the last one hundred years, but it is noteworthy in the modern digital age. The Cruz campaign made a rather tame ad called Conservatives Anonymous which was running on Youtube and nationally on TV with one actress with a speaking part Amy Lindsay sitting in a group of disillusioned voters who are in a therapy session talking about how disappointed they are in the GOP field. Lindsay intones, “Maybe you should vote for more than just a pretty face.” At the end of the ad Ted Cruz comes on and says he approves the message. It’s all really tame but it does make a point.

The problem is that after auditioning for the ad and shooting the ad it was discovered that Amy Lindsay had been a softcore erotica star of some note along with roles in Pacific Blue and Star Trek: Voyager. The Cruz campaign has now taken the ad down because well, conservatives and SIMULATED SEX! To her credit Amy Lindsay is standing by her Christian Conservative values and views acting as a job not as a definition of a person’s values or worse a full meaning of who the person is. Conservatives are already falling all over themselves trying to figure out how the actress got the job and why she wasn’t vetted fully which means like most conservatives they were looking for a round peg to put in a round hole and they didn’t care where the peg had been until some of that peg’s travels could be embarrassing. And this is the part that’s scary about GOP politics. If the Cruz campaign can’t do a simple IMDB search to assure their Bible thumpin base doesn’t get red faced about the CV of an actress what will a Cruz staff do when faced with something that requires real in depth research?

SPEAKER OF THE HOUSE PAUL RYAN ON DONALD TRUMP’S ANTI-MUSLIM STATEMENTS: “THIS IS NOT CONSERVATISM”

Posted in 2016 ELECTIONS, GOAT RODEO 2016, GONZO JOURNALISM, GOP, GOP 2016 CAMPAIGN, GOP AS A MINORITY PARTY, GOP MELTDOWN, PAUL RYAN on 08/12/2015 by Majordomo Pain

As_DaVinci_would_have_seen_Pain

Speaking this morning with GOP members of the House in support, Speaker Paul Ryan R-WI lambasted GOP frontrunner Donald Trump’s call for a ban on Muslims traveling to the United States. Citing the faithful citizenship of millions of Muslim Americans and the lives given by foreign Muslims in support of the effort to destroy al Qaeda and Da’ish Ryan fully denounced Trump as being the antithesis of what it means to be a member of the GOP and a conservative.

MAYBE ALAN SIMPSON SHOULD TELL US WHAT HE REALLY THINKS OF DONALD TRUMP

Posted in 2016 ELECTIONS, DONALD TRUMP, GOP MELTDOWN on 03/11/2015 by sarahbloch

sarah_bloch_9

The 84 year old former Senator from Wyoming can never be accused of biting his tongue. In an interview with CNN’s Carol Costello, Simpson said of Donald Trump, “You could give him an enema and bury him in a shoebox.” This a clear allusion to Mr Trump being full of shit.

You do realize that your time is running out? When President Obama leaves office in January 2017 there will be no profit to be made from the sort of bigotry you swim in currently. Therefore, none of the elites that share your ideology, with nothing to gain financially from bigotry will jettison you and your kind for those who simply hate the Clintons. This must be a truly sad time for you Tim because there just is not enough hatred for Hillary Clinton to justify the pounds of seething vitriol those with your retrograde ideology have flung at the sitting President.

First the White House,

then Congress,

Then SCOTUS,

Then governorships,

then state legislatures,

Then county governments,

then city councils.

We already have the major cities, the American youth, American minorities, American women under 45, the LGBT community and the unions. So what are the conservatives, the right and worse the far right left with? The church goers who are not Christians? The frightened millions of those who feel their right to have the power of Life and Death in their hands in the form of a gun is more important than the lives of living breathing people? The lifeless people who feel that a woman who has been raped bears a responsibility to give birth to the product of that rape? Those black hearts who feel that a gay or lesbian or transgendered person is somehow less Human than they are because of who they love? The Right has lost. Those with this arcane ideology will lose nothing but their prideful desires for control and the power they have too long held over those who do not share their worldview.

You will still be free to worship as you please; but you will not be able to use the power of the pulpit, the synagogue or the mosque to define what others do.

You will still have your precious guns despite all the blood they spill; but you will not have the right to command an arsenal that can threaten the Peace and power of any government, be it Federal, State or Local.

You will still have Freedom of Speech; but fewer and fewer people over the coming decades will wish to hear the angry protestations of the Right because they are tainted with racist nationalist bigotries that are almost as old as Mankind.

It has been nearly 200 years since a political party destroyed itself right before the eyes of the American people. Now as it was then, the party that died was blind to the change coming and was overwhelmed by it. The new party that rose from the ashes saved the nation from destruction and preserved the greatest Union Terra has ever known. That party was the GOP; its opposition was the Democratic Party. The Democratic Party was rooted in white nationalism, bigotry and the economic need to maintain slavery in the agrarian South using religion as a justification. The GOP was the party of abolitionists who saw the potential in all Men who lived on American soil were and should be full Citizens.

The Union was saved; world wars were fought and still the scars of the Civil War and a Reconstruction still were shown on the backs and necks of America’s black citizens and those who saw them as equals for more than one hundred years. The sins of the Democratic Party’s past were absolved by FDR and his New Deal. The greatest series of government programs to right the economic ship of state in the history of the nation. Democrats became the new abolitionist seeking to abolish poverty; first for the white poor and then for all.

There are and have been millions who took unfair advantage of this system over time and those who abused welfare to their own detriment have been far out shined simply by those millions upon millions who did not become dependent on that system. And this is a teachable moment about the difference between We, Ourselves and those like you Tim. While you would focus on cities that are experiencing high rates of black crime you would ignore the crises of prescription drug abuse and suicide in your own race. While you would shout about the 47 million who depend on the pittance that SNAP offers a family those on ideological right shout at the Heavens about what a waste it is to offer a child $142 a month for food. A living child who is poor has less value to you than a child in the womb. Where is the logic in this argument?

Oh how grand it must have been for people like you one hundred years ago. A feeling of near deity like omnipotence with the only possible threat to your dominance coming from others like you that might whisper some gossip that placed a black mark on your familial reputation. Crime, divorce, alternative lifestyles and mental illness could place you on a social tier just above all those minorities that were tortured by the terrorists of the age who then were no better than ISIS is today.

But your time of worry is nearly at an end. We, Ourselves, of The Collective will ask one simple favor of the dwindling number of Baby Boomer conservatives. Take to your knees and pray for Progressives that will lead America into the middle of this current century. And while you pray to your deities, We will pray to the Fates that the Progressives will be good stewards of the People’s Will and will protect those like you in your minority status better than those like you since time immemorial refused to do.

A TALE OF TWO TRAGEDIES: DYLAN ROOF AND BRYCE WILLIAMS

cavalor_hooves

At some future point in the history of the United States of America, citizens will look back on the 21st Century and wonder, deeply, how the nation survived. I am simply a humble demon journalist; I make no claim of being an oracle. Scholars in that far future time I suspect will be less blinded by partisan political ideology, race and gender and will run a true rule over what took place in the first fifteen years of the century in which you currently live.

Having said that, and not as mere preface, I can say with certainty that there is only the most superficial differences in the hate crimes perpetrated this summer in South Carolina and the most recent one in the Commonwealth of Virginia. Dylan Roof was angry and mentally ill; Bryce Williams was also angry and mentally ill. Dylan Roof slaughtered people in a place where such violence was never expected; Bryce Williams did the same and used the technology of the day to document his slaughter.

There are times in history when events make it possible for the Truth to become something that is determined simply by perspective. A true metaphysician would understand that this is fallacy, but when people are bound, tribally, by how they feel they are perceived by those that are different from them, the “other” who has alien ways and whose appearance is markedly different, the possibilities of what is “true” become infinite. Nothing is more True than that above statement as it relates to the United States of America today.

To simply point out the obvious is not enough. As Editor-in-Chief of this newspaper in its digital form for one day short of ten years now I have striven to impress upon those who work here that simply reporting the news is not enough. Journalism, like life, should be more than the a quotidian rehashing of what happened and to whom. What is documented for history must lead to some hope, must show a forward looking vision of courage in the face of many obstacles– it must inspire people to do more than sit in their living rooms, go to their jobs and mate. The written words of my staff here in Hell were meant to inspire to anger, to joy– to do something to make the lives of those outside your family, your community your tribe, –better.

And so I come back to Dylan Roof and Bryce Williams and their murder. I was asked last night over dinner by a friend who I thought was the more evil of the two. Without hesitation and being a member of the Hellac Bar I said, “Williams,” without missing a beat. My friend, who is a Human Being, implored that this could not be the case. Roof, he explained killed nine while Williams killed only two. I replied, after sipping at my glass of warm spicy broth, “Williams committed suicide and did not allow himself to judged by man. Therefore his crime against his own Soul makes him more selfish than Roof.” I could see that my friend of many decades was growing angry so I calmed him in the only rational way I know how. “John,” I said, “I am speaking from my own prejudicial point of view here in the Afterlife as a demon. I cannot know what the life of human is like or what emotions pour through their nerves or pound in their hearts. About these things I can only observe and surmise. From what I have observed the damage done by Roof and Williams have touched many Souls and done great harm. Here in Hell they will be dealt with according to our laws. This is all I know.”

In closing, I feel I need to share a second conversation that I had after a planning meeting to celebrate our tenth anniversary of this blog which commences tomorrow. Our Majordomo, Pain and I met in my office in the early evening and talked about the events of the day, the waning season and the years all of us have been engaged at this attempt to shed some light on what the Afterlife offers for those who slip the bonds of your dimension to join ours. Midway through the conversation, as the topic turned to race relations in America, Pain intoned, “African-Americans who have not had the full benefit of consumer capitalism must make a choice between what they perceive as culture and Moral Success. By Moral Success, We, Ourselves, of The Collective, mean the ascension to a state where a person has by their actions, daily, must be respected. This is a person who excels at their work no matter what field that work is in. This is a person who is compassionate to those who needs help. This is a person who respects the law. This is a person who seeks this same level of success in the First Life for all those she or he knows. This is a person who respects people and their property. This is a person who craves knowledge above all and loves themselves. African-Americans can continue on the road they are on and the playing field in the American economy and society will never be leveled. Or, they can strive to become a Moral Success by ceasing to deal drugs, having a disdain for their Creator-given intellect and believing they are the victim descendants of horrors that were perpetrated against their enslaved ancestors. The chains of one physical type of slavery were broken in the 1860s, the social slavery of Jim Crown was broken by the 1970s; and now in the 2010s, African-Americans must break the last chain that binds them–that of a culture that makes incarceration more important than matriculation, felonies more important than fatherhood and ignorance of the wider world in the name of tribalism more important than the rabid pursuit of intellectual stimulation. They must do these things in the poorest neighborhoods where they live because– black lives do matter.”

Over the next few days, this newspaper will be publishing articles celebrating the diversity of our staff, highlights of the major stories we have covered in the last ten Terran standard years and, hopefully, making you think.
