5 of the 6 are just Scumbags

By Patrick Van Roy On November 20th, 2017 at 1:59 pm

The House passed Tax Cuts, it’s done. It is not a great Bill, but it is not a bad Bill. The only thing that matters in it is the Corporate Tax Rate. Everything else is gravy. There are 5 Senators who are problems.

Let’s run down the potential problem roster:
  • Jeff Flake and Bob Corker: deficit concerns
  • Susan Collins: State and Local Tax, individual side concerns, individual mandate repeal
  • John McCain: process, legacy consideration
  • Johnson: pass-through entity rates
  • Rand Paul: whatever Paul decides he’s opposed to on a given day

5 of the Usual suspects and Johnson. Johnson wants pass-through entity rates cut more. Pass through’s are what you call small business owners who because of the way the Tax Laws are set up have to file as Individuals, not as Companies.

The other four are just Lying Scumbags. Paul is the most reprehensible. Like his father he’s a Con Man, he spouts fiscal responsibility and votes against everything while all the while adding his pet projects into Bills that he knows will pass even with him voting against them.

Corker and Flake are Losers that can’t be reelected and Blame Trump for their Failure so they want to sabotage anything they think will give him what they percieve as a win.

Collins is a Democrat, she is registered as a Republican, but never votes with her party. She like Corker and Flake is not Running again.

Then there is the true Scum Senator John McCain, it would be nice to blame his mental incapacity on his cancer riddled brain, but alas he was a lying piece of excrement long before the cancer ate away what few marbles he ever had. McCain Lied for 7 years and ran on Repealing Obamacare just to give the American Public the Middle Finger for no other reason than spite.

Yes when he was a POW he acted above and beyond, but other than that he is a thieving failure scumbag that should be removed due to mental incapacity. He was a Failure as a fighter Pilot, he has spent his entire political career attacking the First Amendment making him a Traitor to his Oath and the Country, he has never worked a day in his life yet has become a multimillionaire while he “serves” the People.  The Leading Poster Boy for Term Limits.

I understand and agree with Johnson’s objection, the other 5 however are not motivated by representing the people, they are motivated by personal power, nothing else.

If the Republicans don’t pass Tax Cuts as a Party they will be defeated the next two elections…. as they should be.

You can fool all of the people; all of the time

Sunday Times’ Rod Liddle:- I interviewed Ian Smith, leader of Rhodesia until Independence, and asked; ‘How would Mugabe do as leader?’ Smith replied, ‘He will be there for thirty years, murder or imprison all of his opponents; and bankrupt the country!’ 

Not a terribly bad call.

 

In my long years of watching, viewing and commenting upon Black African Politics, I see nothing but the repeat, time and time again, of the new, or rather recycled thugs taking over the governing, or rather the raping, of the country they have “rescued” from the depredations of the last thuggish Dictator who has just been removed /overthrown /sliced-diced-refried /set on his way to his Swiss bank accounts.

When I first heard of the ‘Military’ arresting Mugabe, and then allowing the festering thief who is his wife Grace to claim asylum in Namibia, I felt that I could write the whole saga without a single reference to either broadcast TV, print and online newspapers or other political blogs. Yes, we saw the hundreds of thousands of protesters dancing in jubilation at the ‘theoretical’ downfall of the man who led Zimbabwe; but that jubilation turned sour when Mugabe refused to play ball, and stated he would continue.

My point, briefly, if any discussion on Black Africa can ever be short, or brief, or concise, is simply that one bunch of thieves is being stripped of their positions, graft, bank balances: but the Zimbabwean People will never, ever, see that reflected in their standards of living because the NEXT set of thieves, cut-throats and killers are ever ready to step in and grab the swag, the power and the Government positions which will enrich them; before any other.

For a sober, steady and reflective view of Zimbabwe in particular, and Black Africa in general, take a quiet half-hour, and graze through a sample of Cathy Buckle’s writings. There you will see the real story of Zimbabwe, a fabled land which truly held the title of ‘Breadbasket of Africa’, but sadly now holds the title of ‘Yet another Failed State’; where starvation rules amidst a land which was, truly, the most bounteous Country of all.

MARXISTS NEVER RESIGN

By Pete Moore On November 19th, 2017 at 9:07 pm

Zimbabwe’s embattled leader Robert Mugabe has vowed to stay in power for several weeks, despite intense pressure on him to stand down now.

In a live TV address, Mr Mugabe said he would preside over the ruling party’s congress in December.

The Zanu-PF earlier sacked him as party leader, and gave him less than 24 hours to resign as president or be impeached.

His grip on power has weakened since the military intervened on Wednesday, in a row over who should succeed him.

I’ve no idea what happens next, but the party and the guns have abandoned him. It’s crossed my mind that if Corbyn and McDonnell make it into Downing Street they’ll move immediately to make it permanent. This is how Marxists operate. Principle and morals be damned, Marxist politics is devoted solely to getting and keeping power.

Worshippers in Times Square, New York City

By Patty On November 19th, 2017 at 6:53 pm

In the middle of Times Square, a crowd of people sing  a song called “10,000 Reasons,” worshipping together Our Lord, Jesus Christ.

“I sing like never before, O My Soul, I worship your holy name.”

 

The Hidden Camera never lies

WW2 vet enters Retirement Home in Atlanta

89-year-old James Dempsey, a decorated World War II veteran from Woodstock, Georgia, entered an Atlanta Retirement Home because he could not cope by himself. He died in agony, unable to breathe despite all the resuscitation equipment being on-site, and seemingly, ignored and laughed at by the very people, members of staff; who were supposed to be trained and ready to support the people who were paying the bills.

The attorneys for the nursing home (yep, that is what they actually call the outfit where Dempsey died) attempted to seal the video, but 11Alive, a local TV station, fought the seal, and persuaded the judge that the public had a right to know who was putting themselves up as being helpful, trained and caring nursing staff.

Wanda Nuckles (Nursing Supervisor) stated that she commenced and continued C.P.R. but the hidden camera showed C.P.R. ceased after six compressions; and, while the so-called ‘trained staff’ attempted to get the oxygen machine operational, the other staff began laughing.

I wonder if James Dempsey found it funny?

Retired nursing professional Elaine Harris reviewed the footage and still cannot get over the horror of what she witnessed. “In 43 years in nursing, I have never seen such disregard for human life in a healthcare setting, is what I witnessed,” said said. Harris went on to criticise the nursing staff, “claiming that the nurses failed to respond, assess and act- not to mention the failure to continuously perform CPR,” Popular Military went on.“That is absolutely inappropriate. You never stop compressions,” she  concluded.

Dead & Dying

By Patrick Van Roy On November 19th, 2017 at 5:05 am

Malcolm….. dead

David….. dying

Malcolm Young has passed and David Cassidy who announced a few months ago had Alzheimer’s is in the hospital with complete organ failure.

I enjoy AC/DC their music is always in my song rotation. David Cassidy however gets an honorable mention because the Partridge Family was a hit when I was kid, everybody watched it and everybody knew the tunes.   David Cassidy for the last 20yrs has been a daily headliner in Vegas.

We won’t discuss Danny Bonaduce he grew up in my area and is a major ass.  Other than in the head I don’t believe he is sick. May the other two rest in peace and thanks for the Music.

ATW OPEN THREAD

By Pete Moore On November 18th, 2017 at 1:54 pm

ANY outrage about? Have yourselves an Open Thread if so, one decorated with a bit of old Dublin life.

Tell us what you know –

We will not go quietly into the night.

The headlines and the furore about that Texas church massacre, have died away, and the world has moved on, leaving the families and relatives to mourn the loss.

 

I just wonder what the outcome would have been if the church had displayed this kind of sign, and had a few in the congregation who could step forward and be counted?

 

ATW FRIDAY NIGHT JUKEBOX

By Pete Moore On November 17th, 2017 at 7:01 pm

Because Friday night is Music Night

Knackered, in a word. The London exodus has brought to south of England to a halt. People talk about a housing crises. We don’t need more houses. We need fewer people.

Anyway, sounds. Please disregard the first 10 seconds of this video, which are about as uninspiring as it gets. Groovyness follows, though I’ve just noticed that the great Bert Jansch had a shocking resemblance to Jeremy Corbyn. Shudder. Have a good weekend whatever you’re up to.

As always, feel free to share your top sounds –

The Court of Public Opinion

By Patty On November 17th, 2017 at 12:17 am

When did we become a people enamored with kangaroo courts and rumor and innuendo (and lies?) What happened to us on our way to Utopia? I thought we believed in “law and order” and “innocent until proven guilty.”

Correct me if I’m wrong but even the Magna Carta -circa 1215 -guaranteed an individual the right to a fair trial.

I will believe the armies of women now coming forward on television to tell us how they suffered some sexual offense when they show up in a court of law and actually swear to “tell the truth and nothing but the truth, so help me God.”

Until then the Court of Public Opinion should be recognized to be the circus that it is, with the MSM as the Ringleader.
