I have seen a lot of political ads this year, thanks to some traveling, where I live and the Internet. And I have to say, across the board, they are the dumbest ads I have ever seen. Also considering that debates are becoming a thing of the past, due to denial to show up from both side of the aisle, this is the only way for us to understand our elected leaders. It also makes me think that as a whole, they are either retarded or think we are. The worst part is, both are probably right. Let's see those runner ups.
There’s a palpable fear among Kansans all across the state that the America that we love and cherish will not be the same America for our kids and grandkids, and that’s wrong
One of the reasons that I’m running is to change that. There’s an easy way to do it. I’ll let you figure it out. But at any rate, we have to change course because our country is headed for national socialism. That’s not right. It’s changing our culture. It’s changing what we’re all about.
First off, this country already IS socialistic, as that's how we have things like insurance, health care and programs like Social Security and Medicare, and has been this way since the 1930's. Roberts platform, on the other hand, is full on fascism/oligarchical, which is far, far worse. So tell everyone in Kansas that Pat Roberts is against Social Security and watch his numbers fall ever further. Hell, dress him in Nazi regalia and explain to people why that is accurate. This ass needs to go away. The people of Kansas have that power to make it happen.
2)Ferguson, MO- Will someone please tell the freaking DA of this godforsaken outhouse of a city that the incredible delay in filling charges or dismissal of the officer being investigated is bordering on incompetence at this point? How hard is it to review all the evidence as it has been two goddamned months? Is your grand jury filled with the elderly who have to take pee breaks every five minutes and recess to watch Matlock? Every day there no resolution, this jerk is putting lives on the line. In just the past week we have seen another riot break out, complete with looting and vandalism, after a memorial for Mike Brown burned down, most likely by the candles that had been left lit and unsupervised. Of course black people immediately went to, "white people did it," and proceeded to show the disdain for the fairer skinned race by burning their neighborhood and looting the stores they depend on to survive. Yeah, that'll show us. And then there was the police chief who attempted to join a march in solidarity, but that lasted all of a few minutes before fights starting breaking out and the chief was whisked away. Lastly, two cops were shot yesterday, which media says is unrelated to the Ferguson protests, but in reality, is. People in this area as more likely to shoot cops first and ask questions later, a motto they learned from police forces nationwide. Considering how badly the police force is trained lately, as seen by a cop in SC who shot an unarmed black man for no reason, this may become more and more commonplace. I would like to point out that that cop was arrested IMMEDIATELY, because we have video of the whole thing, and the chief realized that this would not end well if he didn't. Video saves lives. EVERY cop should have on now. Until we do, there will be more Mike Brown's, where we have no idea what really happened and that uncertainty will make the boys and blue even more of a target. As for the DA there, do your damned job and finish this already.
4)The Parents TV Council- Otherwise known as the Fascist Police, these morons troll the airwaves looking for things to get their panties in a bunch about. The latest is tonight's Family Guy episode, featuring a huge crossover with the Simpsons. In it, Bart and Stewie crank call Moe, a regular staple on the show in days gone by. After Bart does his usual innocuous name, like Dick Hertz or something equally juvenile, Stewie gets on and says, "your sister's been raped," to which Bart looks understandably horrified. But leave it to Tim Winter, the PTC CEO, to flip out about nothing. Not helping, anti rape groups founded by actual women said that they had no problem with the joke because of how, in context, it's not making fun of rape, but the fact that it IS SO NOT FUNNY! Winter has no sense of humor, which hardly surprises me from the extremist right. If you don't like it, stop watching. Nobody has a gun to your head. Hallmark channel is calling Tim, so stay somewhere safe.
6)The Jefferson County School Board- Showing how out of touch the far right is, these special set of Colorado losers decided to rewrite the history books to emphasize things like Patriotism, Obedience to Authority and other right wing ideals. The students understandably said HELL NO and left to protest, which is now in its fifth day. Parents and local colleges have joined in solidarity which many see as yet another way for the right to re-write history to their specification, otherwise known as lies. Congrats to the brave students for showing some much needed backbone and doing their best to stop this charade.
8)Black-ish- This was one of the most racist, unfunny pieces of garbage I have seen in years. It made me miss the terrible special effects of The Ringer or even the stupefyingly dumb Pauly Shore show, as they were still better than this nonsense. I made it fifteen minutes in when they started going off on a stunningly anti-Jewish bit, when I finally recanted and quit. When it wasn't making white people look bad, which it did with alarming regularity, it made Anthony Anderson, a talented actor, play yet another case of "buffoon dad," that has been so old for at least a decade now that it needs to go the way of " the butler did it," and "I have an evil twin." Even worse, critics loved this show, giving it a shocking 86% on Rotten Tomatoes. Apparently TV reviewers now are even worse than film ones because this show was bottom of the barrel terrible. Not funny, very racist and overly feministic. You can practically smell the liberalism at work here. If you are watching this crap, please stop. You are killing us all with this drek.
