Kill Bill (he did)


On Friday, Sen. Jim Bunning, (R-eckless) of Kentucky was the lone nay vote on a measure that would have extended cash and health insurance benefits for the unemployed … the lone nay vote that basically killed the measure.

So, thanks to Bunning, starting today, the jobless can no longer apply for federal unemployment benefits or the COBRA health insurance subsidy.

Way to go you absolute piece of SHIT!

Sen. Jeff Merkley, (D-etermined) of Oregon, quite literally begged Bunghole to change his stance.

Bunning’s response?
“Tough shit.”

Sen. Barbara Boxer, (D-edicated) of California, sent Barfbag a letter asking him to “stand down immediately”, explaining what the rest of us with brains, morals, ethics, a conscience and that little thing I like to call a HEART already know … “Unemployment insurance is a lifeline to the long-term unemployed whose families have been hit very hard by this recession”.

Bunning’s response?
“If we can’t find $10 billion somewhere for a bill that everybody in this body supports, we will never pay for anything,” he said, apparently completely fucking forgetting the $704 BILLION spent so far on the Iraq war – without everybody’s support.

As the fight debate drew to a close, Bunning complained he had been ambushed by the Democrats and was forced to miss the Kentucky-South Carolina basketball game.

Boo fucking hoo.
Tell it to the people getting downsized this week, fucker.

‘Lected yerselves a good ‘un, there, Kentucky!

Bunning’s baseness will affect a couple hundred THOUSAND of the nearly 5.4 million unemployed Americans currently receiving benefits. And, if Congress doesn’t act soon, that number will grow to 400,000 during the first two weeks of March and nearly 3 MILLION by May, according to the Labor Department.

You may want to ask yourself a couple of questions, kids:
How secure is YOUR job?
How secure is YOUR insurance?
::: Yes my precious snowflakes — the two ARE connected! :::

Unemployed Americans can receive up to 99 weeks of unemployment benefits – nearly two years – which is a record. The last time unemployment was this high, in the early ’80s, the maximum was 55 weeks. That said, in terms of overall economic activity, this downturn looks like it will be the most severe since the Depression.

Which further underscores why Bunning’s actions are a complete and total outrage.

But hey, it’s also an outrage that everyone else in the known universe isn’t raising holy fucking HELL over the actions of a senile old cocksucker who is allowed to singlefuckinghandedly cut off unemployment benefits in the middle of a Fucking RECESSION, all the while bitching about $10 billion … after his dick was one of the ones pissing away a trillionbilliongozillion fucking dollars on the war in Iraq … a war waged even though NO ONE ever had visual confirmation of weapons of mass destruction!!!

ACK!!!

Along with extending unemployment payments to laid-off workers and providing them with subsidies to help pay health premiums through the COBRA program, the bill also would have helped prevent looming (21 percent) cuts in Medicare reimbursements to doctors.

Would have.

C’mon Congress — time for action. You’ve come through before and you can do it again … maybe this time with dickweed’s vote?
Call him … explain things … demand it!
I did 😉

“That One”


Well, ya gotta give him honesty points, at least. His Maverick Beefiness didn’t even try to hide his contempt for his elitist, terrorist-loving fist-jabber of an opponent …

During last night’s second presidential debate, Big Mac asked if the audience knew who voted for the Bush-Cheney energy bill …
::: clearly a rhetorical question — this IS America, of course they didn’t know :::

 … then he thumb-pointed at my boyfriend and said: “That one.”

Wait … what??

Couldn’t squeak out a “he did”?
Didn’t want to go with “my opponent”?
Not even a winky-noddy glancy-type motion in the general direction of the person to which he was referring?!?

Nope — ‘that one’ … and I’m all, like, ‘WOW and stuff, did he really just say that?’ … and then I remembered the way His Most Mavericky Maverickness has referred to his own wife (bless her little c*nty heart!)  … and I wondered if I should be shocked at all.

I’m still wondering …

McCain temporarily suspends caring about economy


BREAKING NEWS:

John McCain has temporarily decided that the economy doesn’t matter and has, thus, temporarily suspended the temporary suspension of his campaign to participate in tonight’s presidential debate.

But don’t you worry kiddies!
Big Mac promised to reinstate the ‘McCaring About The Economy ’08’ plan and reactivate the temporary suspension of his campaign at exactly one second post debate-gavel put down – at which time, sources confirm, he will fly back to D.C. on a wing and a prayer and get back to work … or dinner … or a nap.

Whatever – the point is that it’s ON!!

Whew – right?

Principal shuts down paper, spits on Constitution


Shasta High School Volcano newspaperYou are:
A high school principal who just learned your student-run newspaper is featuring a burning American flag on its cover and a bonus editorial supporting flag burning inside.

Do you:
A. Engage your student body in a spirited debate on the finer points of free speech and freedom of the press?
B. Wuss out and re-print the edition, removing the controversial content?
C. Pitch a hissy and shut down the paper forever?

Well, if you’re Shasta High School Principal Milan Woollard, you choose Option C.
::: tard :::

A shame really — not because the Volcano was even a decent high school rag or anything but because Mr. Principal got served up a golden opportunity to have a meaningful debate about a real hot-button issue, which might have, you know — like, umm, help kids learn and stuff?

Which is, you know — like, umm, what he’s paid to do?

Oh but we do lurve us some flag controversy in America!!

Whether some schmoe is flaunting his right to fly a ginormous symbol of racism, or a kid’s rainbow-y present to his folks causing some crazy Kansans to see gay flags in their sleep, or a bunch of wannabe baby journos testing that little clause we like to call the First Amendment by torching Old Glory (on paper) — you just gotta be prepared for someone to get his panties in a big ol’ bunch!

Welcome to Knee-Jerk Reactiontown, Mr. Woollard! Hope you like it here.
