Item: During this refreshing period when at least part of gummint isn’t busy siphoning non-essential money out of our pockets, US Senator Ted Cruz (
R Conservative-TX) is pledging to donate his salary to charity.
Item: Wisconsin Demoscum rep Gwen Moore…isn’t.
Wisconsin Democrat Rep. Gwen Moore has vowed that she will not give up her $174,000 congressional salary during the government shutdown.
A large number of members from the Wisconsin delegation who have either refused to draw their federal salary or who have pledged to donate their salary to charity: U.S. Senators Ron Johnson (R) and Tammy Baldwin (D) as well as Congressional Representatives Ron Kind (D-WI-03), Reid Ribble (R-WI-08) Tom Petri (R-WI-06), Jim Sensenbrenner (R-WI-05), Sean Duffy (R-WI-07) and Paul Ryan (R-WI-01).
However, Moore is standing firm — and collecting a paycheck.
“Approximately 800,000 federal government employees have either been forced into furlough leave or are working without pay.” she said in a statement obtained by TMJ4. ”Federal government employees who rely on their paychecks to feed their families deserve a salary. That’s why I am coming to work every day and keeping both my district office in Milwaukee and my Washington, D.C. offices open and fully operational. I am speaking, voting and working diligently to help my constituents through the shutdown and speak on their behalf in Washington to reopen the government. I will not be donating or forgoing my salary.”
And this, Denizens, is the difference between humanity…and sub-humanity.

IN THE SOUTHERN COMMAND –
“The senior senator of Arizona urged senators to trust House Republicans … and frankly, I don’t trust Republicans,” Cruz said. “It’s the leaders of both parties that got us in this mess. … A lot of Republicans were complicit in this spending spree.”
Guess what? I don’t fucking trust them, either.

“If Mr. Paul wants to be taken seriously, he needs to do more than pull political stunts that fire up impressionable libertarian kids in their college dorms. He needs to know what he’s talking about,” McCain said. “I don’t think what happened yesterday was helpful to the American people.”
—John “Did you know I was a Vietnam POW and a war hero?” McCain
Benedict Arnold was a war hero, too, McRINO. How’d that work out for him?
You, Juanita McLame, are nothing but a needle-dicked coward. A douchebag in Republican clothing. A limp-wristed chickenshit dicklick. A traitor to the United States of America.
The Ayatollah Obambi is selling this country down the river, you son-of-a-crack-whore-bitch, and you & Lindsay Grahamnesty are helping him paddle the damned thing.
Go ahead and join the Demoscum, McPusstard. You and Grahamnesty. Both of you are worthless as Republicans.
F.E.T.E, as the Imperial Torturer is wont to say.

This should come as absolutely no surprise to anyone here at the Southern Command. And given Al-Obambi’s penchant for “fundamental transformation” it’s no surprise that the carpet baggers (aka Sen. Chuck Schumer) from New Yawrk are willingly following suit. Follow along here if you will…..
The Senate approved a $60.4 billion recovery package on Friday intended to help the states affected by Hurricane Sandy in November. Appearing on “Cavuto” on Friday night, American Majority Action spokesman Ron Meyer said the bill was also packed with tons of “pork” spending, some of which won’t even occur until after 2013.
Some of the pork spending reportedly goes towards projects that have nothing to do with Hurricane Sandy or the victims, including millions of dollars for tree planting in areas untouched by Sandy and a new roof for the Smithsonian Museum. When an elected representative appropriates government spending for local projects to help his or her district, it is know as “pork barrel” spending.
Wait…the hypocrisy of Schumer continues!
…$1 out of every $20 spent in the Sandy bill will go to “non-relief-related pork.”
Yes folks, THAT’S our CON-gress in action.
Excuse me, I’m going to get sick. AGAIN!

Memo to Lie-anne Fein-swine:

Denizens, you heard it here first. (Or “foist”, to use a bit of Rott terminology.)
Barring a completely unexpected turn of events – the bastard stealing the election in about three weeks? – you have just seen the death knell of the Weepy Boner speakership.
Speaker John A. Boehner’s effort to pass fallback legislation to avert a fiscal crisis in less than two weeks collapsed Thursday night in an embarrassing defeat after conservative Republicans refused to support legislation that would allow taxes to rise on the most affluent households in the country.
House Republican leaders abruptly canceled a vote on the bill after they failed to rally enough votes for passage in an emergency meeting about 8 p.m.
Within minutes, dejected Republicans filed out of the basement meeting room and declared there would be no votes to avert the “fiscal cliff” until after Christmas. With his “Plan B” all but dead, the speaker was left with the choice to find a new Republican way forward or to try to get a broad deficit reduction deal with President Obama that could win passage with Republican and Democratic votes.
Gee, seems that can they’ve been kicking down the road has suddenly developed a solid iron core. Sufficient to make the Sniveler of the House stub his toe a bit, eh what?

(Pun very definitely intended.)
Denizens, to officially start your week off, we have this from the Sibling Unit:
The English language has some wonderfully anthropomorphic collective nouns for the various groups of animals.
We are all familiar with a Herd of cows, a Flock of chickens, a School of fish and a Gaggle of geese.
However, less widely known is a Pride of lions, a Murder of crows (as well as their cousins the rooks and ravens), an Exaltation of doves and, presumably because they look so wise, a Parliament of owls.
Now consider a group of Baboons. They are the loudest, most dangerous, most obnoxious, most viciously aggressive and least intelligent of all primates. And what is the proper collective noun for a group of baboons? Believe it or not…
… a Congress!
“Indeed”, as the Puppy Blender would say.
From that, we jump to some breaking news that’s hitting Fox as I type this (and confirmed by Drudge via CNN)…that Bawney Fag is bailing out on Congress.
Merry Christmas, Denizens!

Juanita McRINO thinks we peons must have misunderstood him about all that business with Tea Partiers being “hobbits” and such.
No, you fucking son of a bitch – we understood you perfectly. Abso-fucking-lutely perfectly.
I’m now officially sorry I ever voted for your pompous ass, you asshatted pissweasel.

Not surprisingly, Wall St. showed its disapproval over it – 512 points worth, although no one on the Street will admit the “deal” (Such A Deal) had anything to do with it, and indeed the Dow gained 61 points back today.
But shortly after that, Standard & Poor’s thumbed its nose at the Ayatollah & the rest of Al-Obambi, lowering the United States’ credit rating for the first time ever.
Just a guess here, but anyone who thinks the Dow will gain Monday should come see me – I have this bridge I want to sell you.
It’s begun, people. Stockpile, lock & load.

Denizens, I have no problem believing that Captain John McCain was an honorable soldier. Okay? For once & for all, let us gratefully acknowledge that he was a hero in service to his country. Thank you, Captain John McCain, for your military service.
Are we done with all that now?
Good. Now, Senator John McCain…as far as I’m concerned, you can go fuck yourself.

(Hat tip for the new title to Patterico, who got it from some of his commenters.)
Fox News is reporting (and the lovely & gracious Michelle is
apparently confirming) that Little Toni Weenie – the star of the hit reality series Whom Can I Tweet My Dick To Today?! – is, after weeks of defiantly (and arrogantly, I might add) maintaining that he won’t step down…stepping down.
G’bye, Toni, thanks for playing.

Denizens, may I introduce to you porn star Ginger Lee.
#Weinergate rolls on for Rep. Anthony Weiner, New York Democrat. Now we’re learning that the plagued congressman shared private communications with porn star and stripper Ginger Lee.
In a March 13 tweet, Tennessee-based Lee indicated that Weiner sent her a private Twitter message:
You know it’s a good day when you wake up to a DM from @RepWeiner”, Lee tweeted. “(I’m a fangirl, y’all, he’s my trifecta of win)”
When contacted by The Daily Caller, Lee wouldn’t say what Weiner sent her in that private direct message, or DM in Twitter-speak. Lee also refused to answer whether she and Weiner have had other private communications and declined to say whether Weiner has sent her photos of any kind. Instead, she downplayed the #Weinergate scandal.
“I haven’t met Rep Weiner. I follow him on twitter because I support him & what he stands for,” Lee said in an email to TheDC.
Now do you wonder why she’s in the porn industry? Certainly appears as if she’s not mentally qualified to do much of anything else.
“I have been hounded by his political opponents
I tend to think it’s not political opponents “hounding” her, but rather leftist horndogs who think she’d be a cheap, easy lay.
And who knows? Given the abject lack of brainpower she’s exhibiting here…they may be right.
but that hasn’t changed my view of him and what he fights for.”
Actress Goldie Hawn has made a helluva lotta scratch (that’s money for those of you in the Church of the SubTarded) playing ditzoid bimbos like the title role in Private Benjamin and her airheaded schtick on Laugh-In.
On the other hand – with this bimboid Ginger Lee…I don’t think it’s acting.

There’s an extremely maddening quality to Newt Gingrich: Every time he gets some momentum going and you think he might be an okay guy to vote for, he goes, sticks his size 13s in his mouth and makes you remember that he’s a libtard in RINO clothing.
And if it’s not that, it’s siding with the Ayatollah on Bambicare.
Former House Speaker Newt Gingrich said Sunday that he strongly supports a federal mandate requiring citizens to buy health insurance – a position that has been rejected by many Republicans, including several who likely will be running against him for the Republican presidential nomination.
Appearing on NBC’s “Meet the Press,” Gingrich told host David Gregory that he continues to advocate for a plan he first called for in the early 1990s as a Congressman, which requires every uninsured citizen to purchase or acquire health insurance.
Newt Gingrich’s appearance on “Meet the Press” today could leave some wondering which party’s nomination he is running for. The former speaker had some harsh words for Paul Ryan’s (and by extension, nearly every House Republican’s) plan to reform Medicare, calling it “radical.”
“I don’t think right-wing social engineering is any more desirable than left-wing social engineering,” he said when asked about Ryan’s plan to transition to a “premium support” model for Medicare. “I don’t think imposing radical change from the right or the left is a very good way for a free society to operate.”
As far as an alternative, Gingrich trotted out the same appeal employed by Obama/Reid/Pelosi — for a “national conversation” on how to “improve” Medicare, and promised to eliminate ‘waste, fraud and abuse,’ etc.
G’night, Newtie. Thanks for playing.

Ron Paul-the-Tard (not to be confused with a Ron Paultard) has stated that he would not ordered SEAL Team Six to kill Osama bin Laden.
G’night Ronni, m’girl – sorry to see you kill your Presidential aspirations before you’d even announced.
Well, not really – but still…uh…no, not really.

(And yeah, that’s what’s going to happen – does anyone really think otherwise?)
Anyway, the discussion is starting to deteriorate to what one would rather have – whether it be a high sales tax, or a property tax, high taxes, high deficits, what have you.
Which prompted an Idle Thought I’ve been having for a number of years now.
Listen to all the political hacks & talking heads yakking it up on TV & elsewhere, and you eventually notice one thing: They’re always talking about raising taxes.
Not revenues. Taxes.
How come you never hear anyone anymore talking about raising revenues? You know – money. Greenbacks. Moolah. Simolians (sp?). Scratch. Benjamins.
You get the idea.
No, it’s always about raising tax rates that they’re constantly bloviating. And this is both Pubbies & Donks alike – no party’s immune to this.
Ask yourself: when has anyone ever paid a debt with a tax rate? When has anyone ever funded a program – governmental or otherwise – with a tax rate? Does Alex Rodriguez make $30 extra-large (that’s “thirty million” for you pussies in the Church of the SubTarded) per year in tax rates?
No. We settle our debts, buy our food, pay our rents & mortgages, etc, with revenues – not tax rates.
Politicians bitch, whine & moan about raising tax rates, blithely believing that the population at large will just bend over and take it up the ass, and not do anything to counter government’s attempts to confiscate that which, rightly, should not be theirs. It would be far better for the country – and ultimately, for the poli-hacks themselves – if they would concentrate their (disturbingly) limited focus on raising revenues.
And you do that…by lowering tax rates. By taking less of a producer’s hard-earned money, and by letting that producer do with that money what he/she does best: Produce. Invest. Create jobs. Hire people for those jobs.
And by doing so, creating more taxpayers for the cycle to begin anew.
Should you ever get a chance to directly address your Congresscritter (assuming, of course, that they’re not the type that tries to hide behind their local SEIU goon) – demand that they tell you what they’re doing to raise revenues, rather than tax rates.
And let them who have ears to hear…hear.
