The most awkward moment in politics

We’ve seen some strange things in politics.  We’ve cringed when various politicians made bizangingly-wacky statements.  But I cannot think of anything more awkward or, truly — pathetic — than what occurs below with Jeb Bush.

This is what you get, however, when a Perfect Storm of factors comes into confluence, mixed liberally (sorry) with high expectations on one side and low results, the direct product of said Perfect Storm.

Jeb Bush it was assumed, when this melee started in earnest last year, was going to be The One for the Republican Party.  He was “it” by dint of his name and the fact that a number of people and fiscal backers proclaimed him so.  Establishment all the way, if you will.  Bush, however, resoundingly pissed me off with his “act of love” comments regarding illegal immigrants.

In general I am done with dynasties, both Clinton and Bush.

Following Monday’s Iowa caucuses, Jeb isn’t doing well.  Iowa’s results were:

Ted Cruz beat Donald Trump, 28% to 24%.

Marco Rubio: 23%.
Ben Carson 9%.
Rand Paul 5%.
Jeb Bush 3%.
John Kasich 2%.
Carly Fiorina 2%.
Mike Huckabee 2%
Chris Christie 2%.

Post-results, Mike Huckabee pulled out of the campaign.  Rand Paul and Rick Santorum then exited the road march Wednesday.

That leaves a much smoother line-up which will be more manageable on many levels and allow consolidation and greater focus.

Here comes Saturday.

We’ll see who’s left standing.



Jeb Bush says he hates to be compared to his brother or his father, then most recently trots out George W and, Thursday, his mother.  Jeb is hurting and he won’t be here for much longer.  I couldn’t be happier.  Okay; well, I could be happier.


Another reason why Jeb Bush should be cast aside:

Jeb Bush Pushes Amnesty, More High-Tech Visas at Education Conference

At a prominent conference of education innovators, Former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush, who is considering a 2016 presidential run, called for more guest worker programs and a path to amnesty for all of the country’s illegal immigrants.

Speaking at what is known as the “Davos in the Desert” event in Scottsdale, Arizona, on Monday evening, Bush said the United States needed “robust guest worker programs” and an expansion of H1-B visas for the high-tech industry,” even though the notion that there is a shortage of American high-tech workers has been called a myth. He also called for a “tough but fair path to legalized status” for all of the country’s illegal immigrants and an end to immigration quotas for countries. 

Bush said that it was not an “American value to have 12-13 million people living in the shadows” and spoke about the need to protect borders and sanction companies that may hire illegal immigrants.

He asserted that the “rags to riches rate” in the country is only four percent and that the American Dream is being replaced with “stickiness at both ends,” as those born either wealthy or poor are likely to remain so while the middle class feels the squeeze.

Jeb Bush is just another RINO whose goal is to acquire votes any way he can.

His goal, most recently, is to ingratiate himself into the Mexican community and, more pointedly, into the illegal community.  He is out for votes and out to reduce the importance of federal rules — just perfectly in keeping with the Obama Administration.

And I am done with that as I am likewise done with Jeb Bush.

Just as we don’t need another Clinton fucking up our country, we don’t need another Bush fucking up our country.  I have had more than enough.

There is in fact a definite limit to “tolerance.”

I am done with Republicans embracing the discard of our federal laws.  If the laws are so onerous and so oppressive, then change the laws.

Until then, the laws that are in place are the rule of the land.  Until they are not.  And until they are kicked aside by politicians and lawmakers who purposely choose which laws they shall enforce and which laws they shall ignore.

Goose and gander.

What’s good for the goose is good for the gander.

If you, ladies and gentlemen of DC, can purposely select which laws to enforce and which laws to purposely ignore, then I submit: I should be able to do the same thing.

What if people chose to not send checks into DC via taxes?

What if the Electorate decided to act as DC does?



Jeb Bush gets stupid with his “act of love”

Jeb Bush Act of LoveSome Republicans won’t like this but I couldn’t less: we don’t need another Bush as president.  And we certainly don’t need someone as blatantly stupid as Jeb Bush.

Jeb Bush: Many illegal immigrants come out of an ‘act of love’

Former Florida governor Jeb Bush said Sunday that many who illegally come to the United States do so out of an “act of love” for their families and should be treated differently than people who illegally cross U.S. borders or overstay visas.

Right.  An “act of love.”  But wait; it gets better.  Or should I say: more idiotic.

Asked about immigration, Bush started by saying that a bipartisan bill passed by the Senate last year made “a good effort” at proposing ways to ensure that people overstaying visas leave the country.

“A great country ought to know where those folks are and politely ask them to leave,” he said, adding later that properly targeting people who overstay visas “would restore people’s confidence” in the nation’s immigration system.

So: wait.  Am I the only one seeing this?  Jeb Bush wants to kick people out who have “overstayed their visas,” but wants to continue to allow those who entered completely illegally to remain?

How starkly insane is this?  Is Jeb Bush completely ignorant of the statistics across the nation and, specifically, in highly-populated Fornicalia?

People who have visas are generally here for education.  To try to contribute something.  People who are illegal have little to contribute except low skills and potential disease.

Is Jeb Bush completely ignorant of the fact that, on any given day, the Los Angeles County Jail’s population consists of roughly 40% to 50% illegal Mexican immigrants arrested for physical crimes against the lawful citizens of the state of Fornicalia and residents of the United States?

Is he aware that, prior to the current rough economic times, LA County and Orange County and other SoCal jails were populated by up to 70% illegal Mexicans?

Is he ignorant of the fact that Fornicalia Mexican gangs have striated themselves into, at base, Nortenos and Surenos (north and south) and a myriad of gangs in between?  And that they rule local jails and state prisons?  Because they are illegals from Mexico?

Surenos believe in the Mexican Mafia or La Eme.  They hold to the color blue.  They outnumber Nortenos demographically in the state.

Nortenos hold the color red and align with the NF, or the Nuestra Familia.  Their “territory” is north of Bakersfield but even that isn’t enough to hold “their line.”  MS-13 generally aligns with Surenos because of their geographic origin.  MS-13 has, at minimum, 60,000 members.

Is the phrase “demography is prophecy” yet ringing true with anyone?  Bueller?

Is Bush ignorant of the fact that, in Fornicalia, because of AB 109, Mexican gangs consisting of illegal immigrants are now major players in gang politics and power and deaths and are now aligning with the ultra-violet MS-13 and — because my county has sucked at the national DC tit — federal “detainees” now have more rights and perks and benefits than American citizens in our county jails?  How many have EBT cards?  How many are on SSI?  How many are on Worker’s Comp?  How many are pumping the “system” for all they can?

Yes.  Most of them.

The days of Juan Valdez picking coffee beans are done.  Juan now drives a 2001 Lexus and has more discretionary spending money than you do.  He shops at your local store and buys steaks and beer.  On the EBT card that you purchased for him.

Charles Krauthammer weighed in on Jeb Bush.  He thought the comment was bizarre, indicating he believed Bush was sincere but leading with his chin.  There are other people in the world waiting patiently in line and are not violating laws.  Realistically, the situation involves not just one family but 11 million.  Sovereignty means something.  We should control who actually comes into the country.  But apparently Jeb Bush believes this is inconsequential.

And that was one of my quite precise points.  Thank you, Charles.

Further: just when did we conclude as a nation that a certain segment of society can decide, at will, to ignore our laws?  And when did we, as a nation, decide that this ignorance of our laws was to be tacitly condoned and then, further, promoted in public?

My final two sentences for this post: Jeb Bush, you are a moron.  An uninformed and unrealistic moron.  Sir.

Was “sir” the third sentence?
