The List II: The Strange Case of Dr. Ron Paul.

Share
 

 It is extremely difficult to summarize the very complex platform of Texas Rep. Dr. Ron Paul without getting too deep into the weeds as to why he’s often a clueless… even dangerous… presidential candidate that no one should ever seriously consider voting for. The Texas Libertarian is extremely popular among young voters (mostly Conservative & […]

The List II: Michele Bachmann

Share
 

 Everybody knows someone like Michele Bachmann. The “Tall Tale” teller, the “Everyone’s out to get you” paranoid, or the Bible-thumper that throws a screaming hissy-fit if you dare challenge their beliefs. But how many of us know all-three rolled into one? Long-time readers know I can’t refer to Michele Bachmann without the obligatory “BSC*” suffix after […]

The List II: Newt Gingrich

Share
 

 This weeks “List” tackles former Speaker of the House Newt Gingrich. I’ve made no secret of my distaste for the former Speaker over the years. In fact, among all the GOP candidates, I don’t think I have a more visceral dislike of anyone more than “Professor” Newt Gingrich. Even BSC* Michele Bachmann and Rick “Don’t Google My Name” Santorum, who […]

For the latest updates, please view that version instead. – Mugsy) Welcome to our first installment of “The List II”: An archive of links to comments, stated policies/agendas, misconduct, hypocrisy […]

“The List” is returning: Mugsy’s Master List of Reasons to NOT Vote for Each GOP Candidate, all December long.

Share
 

 Back in October of 2010, I posted “The List”: A list of 101 Reasons Why the GOP Should Not Be Allowed to Regain Control. “The List” was very popular, and (I’d like to think) played a part in preventing over a half-dozen of the most radical teanut ideologues from winning their respective races (Angle, Miller, Fiorina, […]

The Republic of Inequalstan invades Planet Mahers

Share
 

 During a recent campaign stop, Mitt Romney was asked about President Obama’s “Buffett Plan”, calling for “a minimum tax on the rich”. Romney’s response was to criticize the plan as “Class warfare” (natch), adding, “I want everyone to be rich!” Bill Maher made the observation on his show, “Real Time”, last week, “if everyone were a millionaire, […]

Ten Ways President Obama Can Revive the Economy and Create Jobs TODAY Without Spending ONE DIME

Share
 

  Don’t forget to vote for your favorites below! One month ago, I asked for your ideas to jumpstart the economy at little to no cost. Everyone (even President Obama now) recognizes the fact that Republicans are more interested in spending the next 14 months making sure President Obama loses HIS job than helping unemployed Americans find […]

The Failure of Success. The success of failure.

 As I type this, Hurricane Irene is battering the Northeastern coast, leaving 15 35 people dead and more than a million homes without power. Governors of BOTH parties have been praising the response of FEMA… who was already dealing with the rare East coast earthquake from the week before. And in the middle of this mess, GOP Presidential […]

What’s the Big Idea? I want your best ideas for growing the economy.

Share
 

 As you may know, I spend every Sunday morning enduring watching three back-to-back hours of Sunday political talk shows: “Fox ‘news’ Sunday”, “Meet the Press”, and ABC’s “ThisWeek”. Yesterday’s shows were particularly tough to endure, having to listen to the likes of Karl “CIA name-leaker” Rove lecture Democrat Bill Burton about assigning “motives” or “questioning the integrity of Republicans” […]

Conservatives will NEVER cut the Debt. EVER. So shut up.

Share
 

 When President Clinton submitted his Budget for 2001 in February of 2000, it was his third balanced budget in a row (1998 & 1999), with the Surplus going to paying off the Debt and reimburse Social Security for all the money it loaned the Federal government. During his 2000 presidential campaign, George W Bush argued that the “$184Billion dollar […]

A Little Ignorance Can Do a LOT of Damage.

Share
 

 Every once in a while, I get into an online “argument” with some Teabagging idiot that thinks that I’m a clueless moron that’s out to destroy the country (I reposted once such conversation last April). But after just one or two exchanges, it is clear that everything they know about the world they learned listening […]
