Republican Hates Old People

I have a gripe about old people. They drive too slow. Why don’t they just get off the road, fer chrissakes.

Even worse, the other day I saw some old guy stop at a stop sign look both ways and then go. Right in front of me. Man, I gave that old coot the hoot.

Didn’t they ever teach old people the “look and go”. You look and if you can make a turn before the oncoming traffic smashes into you, you go. But no, they gotta stop.

We used to call that maneuver the “Jersey look and go.” Stopping at a stop sign is bullshit. Fuggedaboutit. But a bunch of goddam old people do it all the time. Really pisses me off.

Oh, and this beats it all. When they make a turn off of a main artery they use this thing called a “turn signal.” Maybe you’ve heard of it. Then they practically come to a stop before turning. They’ll never learn. Forget the turn signal. It’s distracting. The way to do it is to turn fast and wide into the opposite lane if necessary, hell, you need the room if you’re gonna drive right; then use centrifugal force to complete the maneuver and step on it. So what if the tires screech. But not old people. They just don’t know how to get outta my way.

Read the article below, the part about David Frum, Republican propagandist. He knows how to get you all riled up about old people. They just drive too damn slow.

And another thing. What’s all this getting sick stuff. Don’t they know it costs money to get treatment. Tough shit. Not my problem. I’m tired of paying for old people who think they have a right to go and get sick.

That’s means your mother and father, grandmother and grandfather. Agreed!!!

Daily Kos reported that Fox News told the truth. At this point, UPW has no confirmation of the Daily Kos report. But correspondents from UPW are following up and checking sources.

The Red States lead the nation in food stamp subsidies. And they’re trying reduce the program. Guess their sick and tired of people not starving – and that includes themselves and their children. Just hard to figure some people out.


Here’s another gem from Mighty Mitt himself. “Students should get as much education as they can afford.” That’s less and less every year. And for many, it’s no higher education at all.


Ryan’s statements about health care are not confusing; they are thoroughly confused.

He could clear matters up very simply by stating the obvious, that is, there are knowns and there are unknowns. Then there are known knowns and unknown knowns.

For example, Ryan’s health insurance plan will offer vouchers. That is a known. The value of the voucher is an unknown. The plan will offer only profit insurance coverage. That is a known known. The cost of the plans is an unknown known.

Are we clear!!!

Wait a minute. Hold the presses. I must have gotten confused. I’m not sure if the cost of the profit plans under Ryan’s plan is an unknown known or an unknown unknown.

I’m trying to confirm with Ryan’s people right now. I should have an answer in a year or two. Stay tuned.

Ever notice how all Republicans have shit eating grins.


Fox News asks: Why isn’t lowering the minimum wage better for workers?

Like so much from the Foxers this question rises from the bowels of profound ignorance – or unbridled greed.

The answer of course is workers cannot not support themselves earning the current minimum rate let alone raise a family beyond the poverty level.

It’s an utterly stupid question regardless of the theories of economists who are little more than right wing corporate prostitutes.

And here’s a question for the Foxers. Why isn’t lowering CEO wages better for workers?

The Foxers have been avid supporters of the redistribution of wealth for decades. In fact, many of them are wealthy and hold their jobs only because they support radical right wing agendas which include the redistribution of wealth – upwards of course.
