THE POLITICAL LANDSCAPE

This site is dedicated to the proposition that a politician's only value is in the amount of fodder they provide for our amusement.

The content on this site is intended to be a humorous exposé on the disingenuous nature of the clowns we call Politicians, the pundits who worship them, and the financiers who own them.

The current political landscape is dominated by the election. So, to the field of candidates and those who support them – be forewarned – if you lie, cheat, demonize, slander or if you're just plain stupid, you could be subjected to ridicule on this site. And, if you are a defender of the 1%, you may consider yourself toast!

 

This video was made before the election... It was never intended to be prophetic...

ELECTION 2012

AIR OBAMA

The differences between the two candidates are stark. Obama is a fine basketball player who can almost dunk. The only thing Romney can dunk is a donut... and then he'll probably offend the bakery that made it. Obama is at home at a baseball or football game or having a beer at the local pub. Romney is at home on a yacht or at a dressage event... or sipping Perrier in one of his many mansions. But the biggest difference between the two is that Obama is president and Romney is not... and never will be.

STUCK IN THE MIDDLE...

McConnell and Boehner and Canter oh my! These 3 jokers are the reason Congress has an approval rating approaching negative numbers. These gentlemen are in severe need of a large enema. The other 2 Bozos want to run this country... into the ground. Like the original wrestlng-rappers the Insane Clown Posse, Romney and Ryan are tag team partners who wrestle with the truth all the time. As for their vocal talents, little is known about Ryan's voice because he's still catching his breath after running a sub 3-hour marathon. Romney, on the other hand, has exposed his voice as less than "Oh Beautiful". There are dogs that are still howling at his "shining sea".

 

WE'RE THE BOZOS ON THIS BUS!

My apologies to the acting skills of professional clowns, but these two are the real clowns of this world. Mitt the Twitt, as he's known in the U.K., is skilled in the art of deception and secrecy, and loves the trees and dogs of the Cayman Islands and the snowy banks of the Swiss Alps. After only a few weeks of hanging out with Mitt, his new sidekick Paul Ryan has picked up the moniker of Lyin' Ryan - for playing loose with the facts and tight with the truth. To his credit, Ryan seems to be extremely concerned with women's healthcare and has a plan to solve everything by using government mandated vaginal probes and chastity belts.

 

SO MUCH TIME... SO LITTLE TO DO!

You have to admit that when it comes to being a diplomat on the world stage, Mitt falls a little short. His comments about the London Olympics led the British press to call him a twit and label him as a Nowhere Man. The animated Beatles film Yellow Submarine depicts Jeremy Hillary Boob as the Nowhere Man. The song lyrics tell the sad story of a man who has no point of view and cannot see outside his own little world. The British saw the connection to Romney and blasted him in the media.

There is a belief by some that the writing of this song was a left wing conspiracy started by the Beatles over 50 years ago. Seems that John had a vision that Mitt Romney would try to become President of the United States. He then wrote the song so that the liberal media could use it to ridicule Mitt and prevent his election. I believe Glen Beck is planning on interviewing the grave of John Lennon to find out the real story.

 

THE VOUCHERS OF DEATH

There has always been a belief on the right that all goods and services should result in someone making a profit. God forbid if the government provides some things without making a profit or at no charge - that would be blatant socialism and considered evil. That includes healthcare. For so many years, the insurance companies made decisions based on profit and loss and not on peoples lives. Thousands of people died from those decisions. The Affordable Care Act has left insurance companies in the loop but with severe restrictions on how they operate. If the right has its way, those restrictions and the many benefits that the law brings to the insured, would be rescinded. And then they would turn Medicare into VoucherCare and leave medical care for seniors up to a deregulated insurance industry.

 

SHOW ME YOUR TAXES

Mitt's daddy released 12 years of tax returns when he ran for president. Mitt will release 2 years. From his tax havens in the Cayman Islands and Switzerland to his unknown tax rates and deductions, Mitt wants us to trust him. When asked about the specifics of any of his plans for the country, he says he will give the details after he is elected.  Once again, he wants us to trust him. And then there are the flip-flops and the blatant lies and deceit, and he still wants us to trust him. OK Mitt, I'll trust you... just like Boggart trusted the Mexican federalizes in the Treasure of Sierra Madre. Do you have a badge?

 

THE LOVE OF MONEY

After the (not so) Supreme Court declared that corporations are people and money is speech, it became a whole lot of fun for our country's billionaires. No longer were their purse strings tied. It became legal to try to buy the government. Sheldon Addelson said he will spend up to $100 million to get Romney elected. Why so much? It is estimated that his tax savings for the first 4 years of a Republican administration would be about $2 billion. A pretty good return on his investment. The Koch brothers and their $40+ billion empire are pouring tens of millions of dollars to get Romney and many congressional candidates elected. Why? Tax savings in the billions.

Are you wondering why some people who can buy anything they want many times over are not happy unless they are squeezing the system for as much profit as possible? Do you wonder why they seem to want it all - with little regard for how they get it? These are people whose greatest joy and fulfillment is to see their fortune grow and grow. Is it ever enough? Will they ever stop wanting more? Probably not. For they are the lovers of money and the more they have, the more they want, because that's what makes them happy. And their "greed" has led to all kinds of evil - evil that is a result of not understanding that those who have must elevate the lives of those who have not. When they rig the tax system so they pay less and less, they are essentially cutting the programs that help the poor, the sick, the hungry, the homeless and those who cannot help themselves. I'm no Bible scholar but I'm pretty sure Christ would not approve of their lack of responsibility for being their brother's keeper.

Imagine a universe where the mindset of the wealthy was to make more money so that more tax dollars would be available for those who are in need. Then they could take some of what's left and donate it to charity and help even more people. I truly believe that they would discover a greater joy than they have ever known. Also, in that alternative world... pigs fly, Romney tells the truth and conservatives are liberals.

The greatest issue for this nation is will our democracy survive the onslaught of money and remain a government of the people and by the people. It remains to be seen. However, in the case of Romney and Ryan, I don't think any amount of money could get them elected. I have an undying faith that this country will not elect a pair of very long-nosed candidates whose pants are always on fire.

 

PANDERING TO THE NRA

The NRA used to be primarily concerned with gun and hunter safety. Now they are the largest pro gun lobby and would love to see machine guns in every garage and handguns in every elementary school. Romney showed up at one of their events and pandered as only Mitt can. Seems he loves to hunt var-mitts. Real hunters would call that "Pest Control". But the real pest control will occur when Romney and Ryan are defeated and are no longer a part of our political landscape.
