Seques-frustration – The New Fiscal Cliff Brought to You by The Good People of the GOP, All of Whom Belong in Straight Jackets

Everywhere you turn you hear the word “sequester” and “sequestration.” Seques-frustration is more like it–or sequeserbation. Below is the technical definition of ‘sequestration’ which I doubt will clear up the matter but it does suggest a solution. Congress needs to merely reapply the definition of the word sequestration by sequestering the entire Republican Party to a lunatic assylum.

se·ques·ter  (s-kwstr) v. se·ques·tered, se·ques·ter·ing, se·ques·ters
1. To cause to withdraw into seclusion.

2. To remove or set apart; segregate. See Synonym: Isolate.

3. Law – as in a sequestered jury.

a. To take temporary possession of (property) as security against legal claims.
b. To requisition and confiscate (enemy property).
c. Chemical separation of elements.

Pajamas for an ambitious but sleepy brain. Shackles might help, as he probably has restless leg too.

In terms of our own lives, sequestration means the Republican Party is willing to hurl the American economic recovery into paralysis–or worse–regression, by cutting spending while blindfolded and wielding a chainsaw. The GOP is doing so in the hopes that voters will actually be gullible enough to believe it’s all the black guy’s fault. Granted, the White House made a flawed calculation that the House Republicans would actually cave and embrace the concept that fairness and sanity are always the best path to follow. But the GOP knuckleheads don’t care if the poor, the sick and the elderly are harmed. They don’t care if the veterans they sent off to war are left neglected. They don’t care if educational programs are cut. They don’t care if vital government services and related industries are forced to layoff people–who then can’t afford to buy goods and services down the line which are all vital to our recovery as a nation. The Republican Party is very quick to vote to fund wars and other morally bankrupt ideas, but very slow to come forward and honor those commitments when it comes to paying for them. The best way to avert the ‘sequester’ is to say “‘POOF’ and be gone damned sequester.” It’s a manufactured crisis threatening self-inflicted national wounds.

John Boehner can’t control his own fractured party. No one could, it’s a sinking ship of fools.

Eric Canor doesn’t care if the nation swirls down the toilet. He’s delighted that sequestration might be a chance to make Barack Obama look bad in the eyes of people incapable of reading or speaking in whole sentences, let alone grasping rational thinkng—but Cantor’s real secret agenda is to see John Boehner fail so that HE, the almighty egotistical Eric Cantor can personally rise politically and become the next Speaker of the House. Virginia Representative Cantor is all about personal ambition. The rest of the world be damned. To Eric Cantor sequestration is a tool. News flash: Eric Cantor is a “tool.”

John Boehner has proven himself completely incompetent when it comes to controlling his own political party, which is undeniably populated with crazy people–but that might be Boehner’s most redeeming quality. Anyone who could actually control that congress of baboons would have to have signed a pact with the devil, because there’s hardly a sane or honest person left in the Republican Party serving in either House of Congress. Unless you’ve been in a coma for the past decade, you know that the GOP is on a self-destructive and purposeful decline in an effort to appease the most extremist faction of their base. And their base is truly and unquestionably the very definition of the word “base.” The House of Representatives, while still (barely) in Republican control, is one badly wounded elephant.

Mitch McConnell, the Senate’s own warm and fuzzy minority reptile.

The Senate has remained in Democratic hands, and while Senate Majority Leader, Harry Reid has the unique gift of being able to simultaneously disappoint every conceivable political political viewpoint, what keeps his career alive, is Minority Leader, Mitch McConnell, who is by far and away a worse alternative by a long shot. One would prefer to see a Kardashian running the senate than see McConnell in charge. Harry Reid at heart actually cares about the best interests of the American people. But Mitch McConnell doesn’t give a rat’s ass about anything but himself. He hasn’t yet embraced the reality that like all other humans and subhumans, he won’t live forever, and he won’t get to take all his accumulated toys with him when he’s called home to his satanic maker. McConnell believes that if Americans face a setback in our Republican inflicted economic recession, they will get away with blaming it on Obama. So sequester borne famine spells personal success for Mitch McConnell, hoping it will one day sweep him into power, and he’ll be given Harry Reid’s job. McConnell up for reelection by the way. So if you live in Kentucky, vote for Ashley Judd in the primary, if for no other reason than she’s appreciably easier to look at than Mitch McConnell–but then again so is a dissected frog. (No offense Ashley, you’re a knockout and hopefully a shoe-in.)

 

 

Mitt Romney’s sidekick and bat boy, Robin.

Paul Ryan is willing to see the nation face a fiscal sequester, because Ryan’s strong suit is anything but math. He was schooled in the “new math” which is defined by making-up whatever equation best suits your end goal then batting your doe eyes, and hoping no one remembers that you’re nothing more than the male version of Sarah Palin. Paul Ryan “rushed” his political ambitions by jumping onto Mitt Romney’s sinking ship-. Now he’s jumping onto the sinking ship of sequestration. It’s as if he’s magnetically drawn to failure.

Rand Paul: Living proof that mental illness is an inherited condition.

Rand Paul, like Mitch McConnell is also from Kentucky, but he’s poisoning the Senate rather than the House. And like McConnell, Rand Paul is also completely out of his mind, but he come by it honestly. Apparently insanity is an inherited gene. Rand Paul is an idealist in his own mind, but a nihilist in reality. That said, to me, he’ll always be “Aqua Buddha” which sounds like a cheap aftershave available only at Walmart. Rand Paul’s sole purpose in government is to vote against everything and anything in the single-minded effort to grant full permission for people to do anything they want, including denying goods, services and rights to anyone whose complexion doesn’t match his own. Rand Paul is a former ophthalmologist turned politician who prides himself on shortsightedness. Rand Paul’s whole platform lacks vision, with the end goal of abolishing taxes and all other laws so he can use automatic weapons to pick-off peons trying to storm his luxurious family compound once he’s managed to take everything away from all other Americans not to the manor born. Rand Paul would gleefully cast a vote to have the planet exploded by an asteroid because that would probably make sense to him.

For anyone Jonesing for the bad old daze of Joseph McCarthy and the John Birch Society, Ted Cruz is your man–up until he comes after you.

The new face of evil championing the sequester is Texass Representative Ted Cruz, who is keeping the spirit of McCarthyism alive by filibustering everything including bathroom privileges because he doesn’t personally require them. He’s constipated and damned proud of it. He’s also a Pee Tardy PeeRublican, which is a backassward way of saying he represents an alternative universe and not the State of Texas. Cruz represents the State of Confusion. He’s incapable of saying anything that isn’t loaded with unfounded innuendo. He can’t connect dots, so he assumes no one else can either. Cruz said “I made promises to the people of Texas that I would come to Washington to shake up the status quo, to fight for conservative principles and to lead a concerted and meaningful effort to end the unsustainable spending, deficits and debt that have been propagated, unfortunately, by members of both parties.” Agreed, but those cuts need to be targeted and focused. It’s not a blindfolded game of ‘pin the tail on the donkey.’

 

All of the aforementioned Republicans are fond of the phrase “kick the can down the road.” All politicians like that line. But there is no published plan coming from any of the Republicans on how to reduce the deficit, but they insist that the president doesn’t have one either, but he does. They may not like his plan, but he has one, and it’s published. Here’s the link: http://www.whitehouse.gov/ – Follow any of the options for the sequester or deficit reduction.
