Random Topics ... Random Thoughts

Here we go, I am putting my thinking cap on and going to it on different events that have recently transpired in this country of ours . . . . . 

So, it appears that Benghazi is back on the table for the Republicans to kick around again as they attempt to smear Hillary Clinton before she has even announced a run for President of the United States in 2016.
Is that really any surprise considering Darrell Issa is heading up the panel to go after those "responsible" for what happened nearly two years ago? What a bunch of morons!

How about Karl Rove (Bush's "brain") making the claim that Hillary Clinton is mentally unstable and may be brain damaged months after the rest of the GOP said she was faking after a fainting episode last year? Another moron as well as a political has been.
What's the deal with this clown Cliven Bundy out in Nevada sponging off the American taxpayers by having his cattle graze on government lands? They ought to make like the Old West (like the right wing seems to want to take the USA back to) with this guy and hang 'em high!

The teabaggers seem to be fading away, what with the big flop for the 10 Million Man March on Washington, D.C. that had about 1,000 people show up for the "Big Event." Not only that, but incumbent Mitch McConnell (Republican-Kentucky) easily won the GOP primary over  a "tea party" opponent for the U.S. Senate.

Ha Ha Ha!

In the sports world, what a shame Montreal Canadiens goaltender Carey Price was injured in Game One of the NHL Eastern Conference Finals and will be out for the remainder of the series with the New York Rangers. Price is one of the top three goalies in the NHL and now it looks like the upstart Rangers will advance to the Stanley Cup Final (they lead 2-0 in series with Montreal) to get creamed by the defending champion Chicago Blackhawks, who should make quick work of the Los Angeles Kings in the Western Conference Finals.

Good on the St. Louis Rams for making Michael Sam (pictured  right) a draft pick for their football team in the recent NFL Draft. Sam came out as the first openly gay football player and if things pan out, he should make the team this year.
Sam was the Southeast Conference Defensive Player of the Year in 2013, which is College football's top conference. Best wishes for him in the upcoming season.

How about that Donald Sterling, the racist owner of the NBA's Los Angeles Clippers? . . . umm make that the soon-to-be former owner of the team as Sterling continues to put his foot in his mouth and has told the NBA he will not pay the 2.5 million dollar fine assessed by league officials recently when Sterling was caught on tape making racist remarks to his mistress. Another moron is what he is!

Back to politics ...

Will the United States Congress attempt to get anything done this year what with the mid-term elections approaching in November?
Doubt it seeing as the do nothing Republican led U.S. House of Representatives continues to fudge around with Benghazi hearings (AGAIN) and continues to hold votes to repeal Obamacare (ain't gonna happen)  and propose silly budgets presented by Paul Ryan, the buffoon who masquerades as a representative from Wisconsin in our nation's capitol.

When will the U.S. Supreme Court stop acting like they are politicians in black robes and actually
rule justly on cases brought before them? (See "Citizens" United and McCutcheon cases) . . .
What a joke that has become, especially with the five radical right wingers known as Antonin Scalia, Anthony Kennedy, Clarence Thomas, Samuel Alito and Chief Justice John Roberts.

They are an embarrassment to this country!

In closing, so far so good as the gas prices around the country have stabilized and may not reach five dollars a gallon after all this summer. That's a relief for the American people.

Enjoy the upcoming Memorial Day Holiday weekend!

  1. I read a Tweet that said something about the GOP saying Hillary has brain damage at the same time as they paint her as the evil mastermind behind a Benghazi cover-up.
    Talk about playing both sides .....
