Today I want to share a guest post from my Facebook friend George Moss. George & I agree on most things but like any two people we disagree on a few things. This time he hit the bulls eye and to my delight, with his usual satire and humor:
WHY I AM THOROUGHLY CONVINCED THAT POLITICIANS ARE CRAZY:
1. New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg: I need not say anything further here.
2. Former Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi: I will not bore you with an encyclopedia of evidence in this case, but will say that mentioning her name is proof that I was not picking on the East Coast when I mentioned Bloomberg’s name.
3. President Barack Hussein Obama: Nope, it is not because of his name; he made the list because, for four years, President Barack Hussein Obama made one disastrous decision after another, and thought it was Bush’s fault that he was doing, what he, himself, and him, was doing. As for my using his middle name, don’t blame me. I am not the daddy here.
4. Former Michigan Governor Jennifer Granholm: When a mob assembled in Florida to protest Trayvon Martin’s death, Jennifer Granholm donned a “hoodie,” which is about as crazy as you can get because if she thought people were being shot for wearing hoods, she should have put on a business suit.
5. Congress: Most members of Congress are indistinguishable from each other, and, thus, are lumped together as a single entity; they are all crazy. Proof, you say? Let’s start with a $16.5 trillion deficit.
6. Supreme Court Chief Justice John Roberts: We do not think of Supreme Court Justices as being politicians. Well, think again, all the way back to the third Chief Justice of the Supreme Court, John Marshall. In Roberts’ case, he has repeatedly disproved the theory that the Atom is composed only of Electrons, Neurons, and Protons, and never any Morons. The present Supreme Court Chief Justice could not bring himself to say, recently, that the Federal Government had the power, under Article I, Section 8, Clause 3, to create the commerce it would regulate, so this rocket scientist fell back to Plan B, calling coercive, government created commerce, a federal tax.
7. New York Congressman Charles Rangel: The corrupt Congressman was charged with 13 counts of violating the “Ethics” of the House [What ethics?], in which 11 charges were upheld. Rangel would later go on television to state that he was only guilty of “sloppiness” in his record keeping, as opposed to not paying his own taxes, while taxing us to death in his capacity as Chairman of the House Ways and Means Committee.
8. Texas Representative Shelia Jackson: This woman had the nerve to stand on the House Floor last week, as if she was Harriet Tubman, and announce that she was standing there as a former slave. While she looks rather aged, Congresswoman Shelia Jackson would have to be at least 148 years old to have been a slave. Looking at her mug shot, I just, for the life of me, cannot see how she could possibly be more than 100.
9. New Jersey Governor Chris Christie: Christie is the fattest governor in the country, and might be the fattest politician ever, although John Adams, Grover Cleveland, William McKinley, and Theodore Roosevelt were pretty fat, if you ask me. But whether you ask me, or not, I am going to tell you that Christie is fat. Yet, when a doctor, who was trying to help this fatso by suggesting he lose some weight, the Governor took the cupcake from his mouth only long enough to denounce the doctor as not knowing what he was talking about, as if we don’t have eyes.
10. Jesse Jackson, Jr.: The former Chicago Congressman admitted he was crazy, which was described in cryptic medical terms, after he was caught stealing taxpayers’ money.
“And so my fellow Americans,” in case there is any doubt why Washington, D.C., is in the shape it is in, and the country is going to Hades in a Hand Basket, please help me say the pluralized word, “Politicians.”
