Comment Of The Day

I saw the following comment made by a commenter named Katherine over at Weasel Zippers

The unfortunate consequence of having full-time legislators, is that they always want to legislate.

Exactly! The founders envisioned a republic with part time citizen legislatures. Now we have a full time ruling class whose main concern is maintaining power and their overpaid positions.

Inflation? No problem. We'll just give ourselves a pay raise.

Health care? We don't need ObummerCare. We've got a great health care plan that the rubes pay for. And you should see the pension we get even if we only serve one term.

Poverty? We love poor people. That's why we keep them poor so they'll keep voting for us.

Education? We've taken over the educational establishment and turned the schools into nothing more than socialist indoctrination centers. That's why we keep getting voted into office. We've created a stupid electorate. Not good for the country, but fuck the country. It's all about us keeping our overpaid positions. And it's working. See Corinne Brown, Maxine Waters, Sheila Jackson Lee, ex-Speaker Blinky, Chuck "the Schmuck" Shumer, Jug Hussein Ears, Hank "Guam is gonna tip over" Johnson, et al.

Dimocrats are for socialism. So are Republicans but they want to implement it more slowly than the Dimocrats.

Two things have led to full time legislators: air travel and air-conditioning. Back when the republic was founded, traveling to Washington D.C. was measured in days not hours. It was not as easy to get there as it is now. In the summer, DC was hot and humid. That's why there was a long summer recess. Now, with AC, the assholes can stay in session all summer if need be. Or they can hold their grandstanding hearings.

Here's an idea. Since the rat bastard commies in the Dimocrat Party want to put coal and nuke plants out of business to save the environment, why don't we just turn off all the AC in DC during the summer? Think of all the energy we'd save.

BTW, Sheila Jackson Lee is an asshole by accusing Republicans of racism for their stand on the debt limit. The race card. Is there anything it can't be used for?

This is one of those posts where I was just gonna post the comment and a link to the thread, but I couldn't quit typing.

That right there is your best rant in months. Man I couldn't agree with you more!

Nope! It can and is used for anything and everything with these pricks. Every last Dimocrap asshole out there has that wild card up their sleeves and they use it as often as possible, but especially when they're backed into a corner having to face the facts. What's even more pathetic than that is the gaggle of morons that buy into it and continue to peddle the liberal lie...

Heck, I wouldn't insult assholes by associating them with ole Sheila.

Get rid of the 17th amendment, that would help some. And they should only meet once a year to vote on a budget. Other than that. They should stay home in their home district. With the technology now days that shouldn't be a problem.

The "race card" good for everything and every situation. There are some things money cannot buy. Stupidity is one of them.

kerrcarto, good idea, but that just rids us of the Senate, not scrapping the whole Congress and Offal Office. And maybe we should completely clean "House" in the next election. I hope so. Reminds me, check this one out, if you care to. http://prideofamerica.wordpress.com/2009/02/20/nba-nfl-or-congress%e2%80%94who-can-you-trust/on?

This rant is brilliant. No I.C. in D.C. is a great idea. And maybe many heater radiators could be put in the Senate and Congress Rooms. And strand ZerObama on a golf course for the summer.

The previous good rant: "Another Day, Another Vent" just needed a few more F words. Maybe you could add some "Sacrebleu!" et "Emmerdant!" That's exactly the way my Texan friends feel about the jobs situation in USA. (I taught them those words when I lived in Houston.)

Claudia - I plugged Emmerdant into my French to English translator and it translated it to Emmerdant. So what does Emmerdant mean?

Posted by: denny on July 18, 2011 04:55 PM


Here's what I found:

The Alternative French Dictionary: emmerdant

intensely annoying and Example of use: "Que tu es emmerdant!" ("You really piss me off!" (ie "You annoy me intensely")).

Seems about right to me.

Denny - For a French Canuck, Emmerdant means "You're full of shit!" Another suitable insult is "Enfoiré". It means: You're a bastard!. Of course, my friends and I only say those words (with a charming smile) to people who don't understand what we're talking about. It relieves a lot of my frustration to be politely rude in my language.
