Know Your Local Terrorist

By David Glenn Cox

The Tennessee three are now famous and will move on to higher office courtesy of the Republican Party. Zooey Zephyr is now the new face and voice of transgenders courtesy of the Republican Party. Or as Mark Twain put it, “Adam was but human—this explains it all. He did not want the apple for the apple’s sake, he wanted it only because it was forbidden. The mistake was in not forbidding the serpent; then he would have eaten the serpent.”

The best way to get a kid to read a book is tell them they can’t because it’s forbidden.

Everything old is new again, Bernie Sanders says after a billion dollars a year in income you should be taxed at 100%. Huey Long said that in the 1930s. Enough is enough.

“ But when they’ve got everything on the god slaving earth that they can eat, and wear and they can live in – and all that their children can live in and wear and eat and all their children can use – then we’ve got to call Mr. Morgan and Mr. Mellon and Mr. Rockefeller back and say, “Come back here. Put that stuff on this table that you took away from here. Put that stuff back on this table that you took away from here that you don’t need. Leave something for the American people to consume.”

The pendulum of time swings slow but it swings sure. Because they can’t compromise or understand issues from the other person’s point of view, they stand to lose it all. Rather than raise the debt limit. Republicans propose, removing 300,000 children from head start. Cut funding for 2,000 border agents. Eliminate funding for 11,000 FBI agents and local police. Shut down 125 air traffic control towers and evict hundreds of thousands from section 8 housing.

Trump’s 2 trillion-dollar tax cuts for the wealthy? What tax cuts? “Oh no, we couldn’t do that! Put back the 2 trillion robbed from the Social Security trust fund to finance the Iraq war? You mean, we didn’t put that back yet? Oh, I’m almost sure we did.”

A fan boy got his boxers in a bunch because I told him the Space X heavy lift booster was a knock-off of the old Soviet N-1 moon rocket. Billionaires don’t have ideas they steal them. But Fan boy called me a hater and then felt it necessary to explain the Elon Musk was a Libertarian.

Isn’t ignorance cute? Not understanding that all the Feudal Kings of Europe were also Libertarians. “I am king and live a lush opulent life in my many palaces. And you are a starving peasant freezing to death because that’s the way god wants it. It sucks to be you, better luck next time!”

“I asked a man in prison once how he happened to be there, and he said he had stolen a pair of shoes. I told him if he had stolen a railroad, he would be a United States Senator.” ― Mother Jones

The Republicans have painted themselves into a corner. They propose a 20% budget cut for the VA before eliminating tax cuts for the wealthy. Shutting down libraries because they don’t like the stories the books tell.  Tehas Governor Greg (Bubba) Abbott is angry with Joe Biden about the border issue that has been going on for well over one hundred years.

So, Bubba picks up migrants and ships to Democratically administered cities like Chicago. The migrants didn’t ask to go to Chicago, Bubba decided for them. Maybe criminals released from the Cook County Jail should be given a hand gun and a bus ticket to Texas? To turn over a new leaf and start life over. The point is Chicago didn’t create the problems in Texas, but Texas is creating problems for Chicago.

This is what Republicans consider governance. People don’t mean anything. Just dump them out on the side of the road somewhere. Problem solved. But Bubba, couldn’t wait to point out the five people murdered in Texas were murdered by a criminal migrant. See, to Republicans that is all that matters. But what about all the other murders in Texas? (See: Plane Wreck at Los Gatos)

Goodbye to my Juan, goodbye, Rosalita,
Adios mis amigos, Jesus en Maria;
You won’t have your names when you ride the big airplane,
All they will call you will be “deportees.”
– Woody Guthrie

The Republicans don’t care about migrant children just as they don’t care about your children. And just as they don’t care about you! Abortion and Transgender health care are just hot button wedge issues they use to excite their moron minions. So, they can pass more tax cuts. Or pretend to be conservative by making life harder for the non-billionaire class.

The Nazi Party in Ohio holds rallies against Transgenders to support their allies in the Republican Party in their war on Transgenders. Remember kids, “Not all Republicans are Nazis, but all Nazis are Republicans!”

Trump tells his sycophants that only bad Nazis, I mean, Republicans would vote for Ron DeSantis. Ron is obviously living rent free inside Trump’s head. DeSantis is already an electoral dead duck. Dead from self-inflicted wounds. After Disney announces their lawsuit, Ron’s hand-picked board authorizes a lawsuit in the name of the people of Florida against Disney. But even Floridians are getting tired of the nonsense.

A Republican Party of disinterested self-interest. They don’t give a shit about highways or schools or libraries or health care. They don’t give a shit about anything period besides themselves, end of story.

And now another log on the fire as the Extreme Court has been taking cushy “Work” trips. A couple of weeks in Europe in exchange for a twenty-minute speech and a $30,000 check. Nice work if you can get it. Once you get mama’s house fixed and a part-time job for the wife. Yep, corporations are just like people and money equals free speech.

And why will nothing be done to remove these corrupt Justices? Because the Republicans will protect them from removal. They don’t care the Justices are corrupt because they are corrupt the right way. Hells a poppin, steal yourself rich. Know your local terrorist!

“There were two “Reigns of Terror,” if we would but remember it and consider it; the one wrought murder in hot passion, the other in heartless cold blood; the one lasted mere months, the other had lasted a thousand years; the one inflicted death upon ten thousand persons, the other upon a hundred millions; but our shudders are all for the “horrors” of the minor Terror, the momentary Terror, so to speak; whereas, what is the horror of swift death by the axe, compared with lifelong death from hunger, cold, insult, cruelty, and heart-break? What is swift death by lightning compared with death by slow fire at the stake? A city cemetery could contain the coffins filled by that brief Terror which we have all been so diligently taught to shiver at and mourn over; but all France could hardly contain the coffins filled by that older and real Terror—that unspeakably bitter and awful Terror which none of us has been taught to see in its vastness or pity as it deserves. – Mark Twain

  1. “The best way to get a kid to read a book is tell them they can’t because it’s forbidden.” it’s amazing that this is a fantastic and Common Sense understanding that I realized and posted in a comment section about a week ago! I don’t see how a governor, A GOVERNOR, gets to continue another day as a prominent figure as a lawmaker with a policy so ignorant! The Republican party dupes people into voting against their economic interests by triggering outrage on cultural issues. It’s simple to understand that we’re for elderly people, young people, students, poor people and the middle class. I feel that now tRumptards have done so much lying that now too many Americans don’t want to live in a nation based primarily on caring. Thank you but once again, David Glenn Cox, for boosting the Scope of navigable writings on the wall once more while there’s still a chance these blind people will find your materials and see…!
