Government Shutdown, Bad Congress & Dumb Voters, Onion Week in Review


“Democracy is the theory that the common people know what they want, and deserve to get it good and hard.” – H. L. Mencken

Onion week in reviewThe age old question of Democracy, and for that matter talk radio and Fox News. Who is more at fault for all this Right-wing swill these days? Those who spew the poo or those who vote and tune in to hear the poo? As Congressman Allen Grayson said last night on Bill Maher, the Republicans have us beat because they command the stupid vote.

I don’t have the exact quote but one of the fathers of the Tea Party Ugly, Matt Kibbe who is also the CEO of Freedomworks which funds Tea Party candidates, put not only Obamacare, but the entire political divide we suffer in perspective.

Why should I pay anything to benefit someone I don’t know.

There you have it.  But what to call it? The decivilization of America? DEVO? Barbarians in the Well? Though I think I got it best some years back, I, Me, Mine, My and fk you. But even that needs an update now with the entire Republican Party imploding because they are unable to deny health care to 30 million souls.  I, Me, My, Mine, fk you and die.
