I live in a constant state of early 90s.
When college rock was good, and black people were still on TV.

     Republicans couldn’t live off minimum wage; still oppose raising it.

A survey by Public Policy Polling shows an even bigger disconnect about the minimum wage among the GOP.

  • 69% of Republicans say they couldn’t live on the current minimum wage
  • 37% of Republicans support raising the minimum wage
  • 80% of Democrats say they couldn’t live on the current minimum wage
  • 74% of Democrats support raising the minimum wage

Not only are many Republican voters wholly ignorant about what it really means to live on minimum wage, but even those who admittedly could not live on those paychecks still wouldn’t vote to raise the wage floor.  If that’s not the Republican Party spitting on poor people (AND THEMSELVES) I don’t know what is.

     Obama “Presidential Library” Outhouse float not offensive because most people liked it.

Another Presidential Library Outhouse made an appearance at a 4th of July parade in Norfolk, Nebraska because apparently this is a cute new thing to do?  

We can try to figure out the motivations later, but one of the organizers of the parade, Rick Konopasek, says 95% of people liked it so why should they have barred the float for the other 5%?

Clearly catering to the majority has always worked well for all people involved in this country.  The majority is always right and we never need a quick voice of reason from a minority faction to start shifting public opinion the other way.

     Anti-environmentalists modifying trucks to produce excess exhaust.

Today in Ignorant Angry White Men, there’s a new-ish tactic to show your distaste for Obama where you alter your vehicle’s exhaust to spew copious amounts of black smut, because polluting the environment, exposing your kids to cancer, and flooding nearby property with black clouds is a small price to pay for showing Obama how you really feel.

Also, in case you forgot, Ignorant Angry White Men ain’t shit, ain’t never was shit, ain’t never gon be shit, and this is the most ridiculous shit I have ever seen.

     GA Republican Jody Hice: “Most people think Islam is a religion, it’s not. “

image

It’s a totalitarian way of life with a religious component. But it’s much larger. It’s a geo-political system that has governmental, financial, military, legal and religious components. And it’s a totalitarian system that encompasses every aspect of life and it should not be protected (under U.S. law).”

(source)

Alright, let’s travel down this road of bigotry with him (because that’s what it is).  Let’s assume that he’s correct in his thinking, and because Islam encompasses so much more than picking a god and going to worship him once a week, it should not be protected under US law.

Fine.  We’ll need to get rid of Catholics as well.

     Watch Paul Ryan hand the IRS Commissioner his whole entire ass.

In case you were not previously aware, I do not feature Paul Ryan and I also have no use for Fox News.  Still.  I can’t sit here and act as if Life was not wholly given earlier today when Paul Ryan went in on IRS Commissioner John Koskinen.

You can reach into the lives of hardworking taxpayers, and with a phone call, an email or a letter, you can turn their lives upside down.  You ask taxpayers to hand us seven years of their personal information in case they’re ever audited, and you can’t keep six months of employee emails?

     Clueless Fox News contributor Stacey Dash says the GOP is for gay marriage.

I’m not sure if this is willful ignorance so Stacey doesn’t have to fully own up to the fact that she supports a party that is pro-bigotry and discrimination or if this is just the regular kind of ignorance where Stacey just doesn’t know what the hell she’s talking about.

     Friendly reminder that Republicans in Texahoma really hate gay people.

I’m a big fan of state portmanteaus.  Missibama is probably the one I use the most.  ”Flyover states” offends too many Midwesterners and that hatemail is tiresome, so I’ve been referring to that pancake land as Kanssouribraskahomakota.  Texahoma is a new one, but I’m sure it’ll make future appearances given that the politics of Texas and Oklahoma are so similar.

For example, let me just take a quick moment to go over what these three bigots had to say about us this past week:

     Ted Cruz renounced his Canadian citizenship to run for President…but can he?

Earlier this week, Canada’s loss became…well, our loss as well really when Ted Cruz formally renounced his dual citizenship.  No longer a Canadian citizen, Ted Cruz now solely belongs to the United States, because he wants to be President.  He hasn’t formally said that’s the reason, but we can read the writing on the wall.  Cruz doesn’t want any citizenship issues causing problems for him should he officially declare his intention to seek the Republican nomination in 2016.

So, the matter is settled right?  Not quite.  Without a Supreme Court ruling or an amendment to the Constitution to clarify “natural-born citizen,” it’s still not 100% clear whether or not Cruz is eligible for the Presidency.  Much clearer though is the hypocrisy of the GOP who aren’t even paying attention to this issue at all.
