July 3, 2012  By Jack Jodell

Maybe it’s just the sweltering summer heat, but I have HAD IMY FILL with the extremist far-right in this country! That’s right: HAD IT! Yes, I’ve had my fill of Sarah Palin, Michael Savage, Glenn Beck, Rush Limbaugh, Sean Hannity, Darrell Issa, Eric Cantor, Mitch McConnell, spokespersons (stooges) of far-right disinformation think tanks like the Heritage Foundation, the pro-corporate and anti-labor Chamber of Commerce, the NRA, and ALL those who constantly spew out hateful anti-government venom, along with all who have been duped into echoing their every pronouncement as if it were gospel truth. It is NOT truth of any kind, and it is high time the USA woke up and did something about it!

I, like many others, was amazed that the Extreme (Supreme) Court upheld the Affordable Care Act last week. I was really shocked to learn that Chief Justice John Roberts had broken away from the other 4 conservative justices (who had previously handed down the horribly mistaken and detestable Citizens United decision) to join the 4 liberals to write this new majority ruling in favor of the health care law. 

Immediately upon hearing the Court’s decision, the far-right crackpots and those who are courting them like  Presidential wannabe Mitt Romney declared the act to be bad legislation that he would immediately repeal the  moment he took over the White House. Sarah Palin grabbed her favorite device that all 12 year olds like best and Tweeted her profound thought “Obama lied amd freedom died.” Wimpy Louisiana governor Bobby Jindal (why does this pathetic little boy remind me so much of Mad Magazine’s Alfred E Neuman?) hurriedly pronounced that he would implement none of the bill in his state and vowed to defeat Obama this fall at all costs. Talk radio loudmouths Rush Limbaugh and Michael Savage also had to put in their worthless and hateful two cents worth: Limbaugh spouting off that Americans were now “governed by the greatest assault on personal liberty and freedom” and that the ruling constituted “the biggest tax increase in the history of the world.” Go figure. Meanwhile, Savage intimated that Roberts, having been treated some time previously for seizures, was now mentally slowed by the medication used, and couldn’t therefore produce a rational judgment on the case. Funny – I don’t recall Savage or anybody else questioning the mental capacities of the Chief Justice until this specific decision…

Georgia 1st District Republican congressman Jack Kingston moaned, “I feel like I just lost two great friends: America and Justice Roberts.” How imbecilic. Then he, like Romney, vowed to repeal the bill. Of course, the nerdy conservative never mentioned how insuring millions more people, allowing students to be covered on their parents’ plan until the age of 26, or eliminating lifetime caps on individual dollar amounts was “losing America.”

Unbalanced talk show host Glenn Beck was not to be outdone. This paranoid loser called Roberts a “traitor” and started selling $30 T- shirts bearing Roberts’ face with the word “coward” printed beneath it. As the monumental  decision was read, the equally unstable and downright batshit crazy Michele Bachmann stood outside the Supreme Court building and declared, “We lost religious liberty – that is a fundamental right under the constitution…we lost economic liberty – that is a fundamental right under the constitution. We lost our individual liberty to set our course in this country.” Hmmm, what else could one expect from a teabagger like her who wants “the right” to eliminate the minimum wage altogether?

Darrell Issa just wasted thousands of taxpayer dollars and many hours of congressional time on a thoroughly worthless sham investigation of the Attorney General, the sole purpose of which was to embarrass the President by holding his Attorney General in contempt of congress. The equally worthless Republican Majority Leader Eric Cantor was quick to schedule two worthless waste of time votes; one the odious contempt vote, and the other an equally meaningless repeal of the Affordable Care Act vote. Both measures will accomplish nothing, and are a waste of EVERYONE’S time! So much for fiscal responsibility. Both of these overly-partisan morons should be held in contempt of the American voter and taxpayer!

By jumping all over Roberts as they did, and by their steadfast stated desire to repeal a law they don’t like even though it has been declared constitutional, these hardcore right-wing extremists have shown once more how thoroughly uncompromising and truly vicious they are. In their narrow-minded world, one must be 100% in agreement with them, or risk being totally rejected and discarded by them at the drop of a hat,They behave like spoiled young brats who refuse to cooperate unless they first get their own way, They lie, cheat, and steal to obtain and keep total power. These are a very immature lot who must NOT be given into anymore, Until they become more sensible and show some respect to those whom they oppose, they should be treated like the spoiled little brats they resemble and be ignored completely. Basically, the time has come to ignore these extremists completely and pull the plug on this unyielding far-right!

    Now the Republicans are going to hold a vote to repeal ACA. They are just grandstanding to appease the right-wing nuts because it will either be stalled in the Senate or, if it should pass both houses (not a chance), Obama will veto it so what’s the point? The point is to talk about anything and everything else besides Romney’s failure as a governor and about Bain Capital. They can’t win and have no answers so they are trying to use diversionary methods.

    • jackjodell53 says:

      It is obvious they are stalling and grandstanding for no good reason. They will stall all the way up to the election, but then the laugh will be on them as they discover to their horror that all the stalling has produced is a massive GOP defeat, despite all the millions their billionaire buddies have wasted trying to prop them up. Better days ARE coming, and they will be OURS!

  3. Hello Jack,
    I want to take this moment to wish you and everyone a “Happy 4th of July” and make note of the true reflection of our Founding Father’s original time frame.

    Benjamin Franklin was the “Progressive Radical Liberal” and his son, William Franklin, the last Colonial Governor of New Jersey and a steadfast “Conservative Loyalist” throughout the American War of Independence. The secession from British rule and governorship of the American Colonies destroyed this father and son’s relationship from his “Conservative” views.

    Speaking of the Tea Party, those who are claiming the current “Tea Party Conservative Platforms” have inversely bastardized the historical truth that the original attendees of the Boston Tea Party raid were the “Progressive Liberals” who brought forth this country. If our destiny was left to the “Conservatives” of the time, we would still be under British rule today. It is the “Conservative Teabaggers” who have the repressive views and are the traders to this country’s origins.

    One could see the possibilities that the current Teabaggers may have been educated by the “Texas School Board” because they are not even accurate of their namesake’s origins. Just another example of the current Teabagger’s ignorance and stupidity…..and they want to mandate how I live?…..I don’t think so and for those who want to repress me and my family based on their “Current Conservative Teabagger’s Viewpoints,” “Don’t Tread On Me!!!”

    • jackjodell53 says:

      Hello, Engineer of Knowledge, and a happy Independance Day to you, too! Today’s teabaggers are among the most misinformed, ignorant, vile, stubborn, disrespectful, and dishonest faction the GOP has ever produced, and the sooner they vanish entirely from our political landscape, the better! Your description of Franklin and his son was spot on!

  4. Hi Jack, good piece. I’m with you: we need to pull the plug on these extremists. I’d also like to see the Democrats grow a pair for a change and stop being wimps who always fold to the extremist Right like a cheap card table. We need more people like Alan Grayson, a warrior for the Left who fights fire with fire. (In fact, for that matter we need Grayson himself back). He’s currently in need of volunteers for his campaign if anyone can help. Go to: http://www.congressmanwithguts.com/volunteer

    • jackjodell53 says:

      Thanks, Marc.I do hope Grayson will win back his old seat. We DEFINITELY need more of his type in Congress!

  5. The extremist-right crass menagerie has earned every bit of your condemnation, Jack. Bullies, crackpots, political hacks, racists, ignoramuses, money hustlers — they’re a pack of jackals if there ever was one. More disturbing yet is that so many people support them, even though doing so goes against those supporters’ own best interest.

    Methinks making political choices on the basis of resentment, spite and selfishness comes at a high price.

  6. Tom Harper says:

    Great rant. I’m all in favor of pulling the plug on these rightwing screaming memes. I personally don’t pay any attention to them (except occasionally, for entertainment purposes only). But how do we get get millions of brainwashed 99-percenters to pull the plug on them?

    • jackjodell53 says:

      That’s the big question. I would say we keep pelting them with the truth until they finally see the light. It’s a seemingly never-ending struggle that we cannot let up on.

  7. tnlib says:

    “They” – the Republicans and the right-wing (one and the same) – are seeing the fruits of their labor: a propaganda war they have been waging for several decades. So much of this is to detract people’s attention away from the real issues and they do this, of course, with the use of lies, fear tactics, unlimited funding and scapegoats. How do we confront all this shit? Hell if I know but it would be a start if Democrats and any remaining honorable Republicans, if there are any, grew a spine.

    Have been trying to figure out what cartoon character Jindahl reminds me of and you pegged it.

    • jackjodell53 says:

      Great observations, Leslie. As for that wimpy Jindal, one look at his ridiculous looking expression makes the comparison with Alfred E. Neuman inevitable.

      • tnlib says:

        I just posted a mind boggling interview with Jindal and credited you with the Alfred E. Newman look alike. So perfect.

  8. Spyker says:

    Crackbarry’s path of destruction is well documented… for those that just don’t understand, obviously, have never run a successful business.

  9. jackjodell53 says:

    Thank you, Leslie.
