A SOTU Over Before Its Begun

Thanks, Hugh, for the "Glass Half Full" scenario. I hope your optimism about our surviving the next two years with little harm other than to Obama's "legacy" is warranted. But I'm afraid that once His Majesty grants the Bomb to the Iranians (who have been celebrating their national "Death to the Great Satan" holiday every year for the past 30 years), we're going to see more of a "Glass Where an American City Used To Be" scenario. Whether America can survive that, with this so-called "President"'s term of office ending in two years, remains to be seen.

Cancel the State of the Union

This is one occasion where the British got it right. On the opening of Parliament, the Queen sends an usher to the House of Commons, ordering them to attend Her Majesty's speech in the House of Lords. She gives her speech there because the Monarch is forbidden from entering the People's House. When the Queen's usher approaches, the doors are slammed shut in his face. He bangs on the door three times and delivers the Queen's order to attend. The Speaker answers disrespectfully and the members all have a laugh at the Queen's expense. Then the Sergeant of Arms picks up a weapon and leads them into the other chamber to hear the speech. If Boehner doesn't have the guts to cancel His Majesty's speech altogether and bar him from entering the People's house, the least he could do is show a little disrespect!
Once again we arrive at Greenburg's yearly veneration of Lee -- the West Point traitor who took up arms against his country to defend his beloved Virginia's "state's right" to freely buy, sell, rape, kill, and lynch the half of its citizens who happened to be black. What a hero! Once again, Greenburg reminds us how Lee managed to hang on to his "sacred honor" -- while devastating his country and his precious Virginia in a war that to this day remains the most costly war this country has ever fought in American dead -- at a time when the population was a quarter of what is today. And he did this by prancing around on a white horse in a fancy uniform, issuing high-minded orders about not raping and pillaging, while his subordinates freely raped and pillaged. What a guy! Thank you, Greenburg, for this yearly reminder of how our Republican Party became infested with unreconstructed Confederate bigots like you: Millions of Dixie Dumbocrats switched parties when Johnson used handouts to forever enslave the children of slavery to the Dumbocrat plantation, and you were too stupid to understand his evil genius. Please, Greenburg -- take your Confederate horde of unreconstructed racists and go back to the Dumbocrat party from whence you came. We'll get along somehow without you!
Well, I'll give you this, Chapman -- in the long run, "What me worry?" works. After all, you and Alfred E. Neuman were right the last time the Muslims took their holy book seriously. After a mere 400 years, the last global caliphate exhausted itself and self-imploded. No doubt by the year 2400, the current crop of Islamic lunatics will have also tired of killing infidels, if we don't give them a reason to do so sooner. But if you think the reason they haven't blown up your house yet is that the threat is overblown, I would point out that there has been some fairly stiff American opposition to the whole "death of the great Satan" idea, even under Emperor Obama the Usurper. Besides, they've only been trying to kill you for about 30 years now. It takes time to kill a Great Satan! Once BO gives them the Bomb, you might find that the short version of history is not always so rosy. But you and Alfred E. Neuman just relax! Maybe they'll use their bomb on BO's house instead of yours! Oh, wait... isn't your house in Chicago, too?

The GOP's 20 Car Pile-up

You mean, like after Obama gets done with it? Or after Romney/Clinton gets done with it? If Republicans had said HELL NO to Bush, there would have been no McCain -- and no Obama. If Republicans had said HELL NO to Romney, we wouldn't be looking at yet another Bush/Romney/Clinton choice this time. At what point are Republicans finally going to take back their party from the Chamber of Commerce?

Bush? Romney? Hillary? As the shrill one once said, "WHAT DIFFERENCE DOES IT MAKE"? If those are my choices in 2016, here's my answer: All of my future WASTED votes will be Libertarian! If we must throw away our votes anyway on yet another dumbocrat-lite, why not use those votes to scare the bejesus out of Carl Rove? If 50% of the GOP showed up at the polls to tell them where to stuff their latest "electable" bozo, we might someday get an actual Republican to vote for.
I am so sick of "decent, honorable, capable" GOP candidates/Presidents. All the Bushes are "decent, honorable, capable" men. And they're also all insufferable blue-nose losers with no discernable political values who conspired with Dumbocrats to destroy the Reagan revolution -- just like Romney. For once, can we nominate a FIGHTER? I want a man unafraid to call out 160 years of Dumbocrat debasement of American principals -- from slavery and eugenics, to KKK Byrd and Jim Crow Johnson, to the current raft of aging hippie-communist, campus bombing, Fidel loving, Muslim sympathizing, tree-hugging, climate changing, luddite, Europe-sucking A-HOLES.
He's lucky those are only "moderate" Muslims! Imagine what an "extremist" Muslim might do to him.
Just one problem, Kurt. You could kill every single Islamic terrorist on the planet, and that problem would still remain. That problem is that their holy book ORDERS them to kill us. You could kill all the faithful Muslims until only backsliders remain, but what prevents a new crop faithful from discovering once again those orders in the Koran to start killing infidels again? You're wrong on this one, Kurt. Until the Muslim religion expunges those verses from their holy book and their religion, and formally renounces once and for all the entire concept of "Jihad", it will forever be Islam that has declared war on civilization, and we have no choice but to defend ourselves. It would help if we could at least bring ourselves to utter the name of our enemy.
Loser pays is a good start, but if we really want to fix this, we need to break up the lawyers union -- the American Bar Association. We the don't allow monopolies elsewhere, why do we allow union monopolies? And if we want to fix this for good, ban the lawyers from the courtroom. The constitution says we have a right to counsel. It doesn't say we have the right to hire a professional lie-yer to tell better lies on our behalf.
Pfsssttt! ... and with a progressive's congenitally absent sense of humor, the point zings right over his head! Keep your head down, Capt. Beyondo! You could be the victim of a stray ironic remark if you're not careful!
