Republicans are Stupid I

Obama called neocons out on their bullshit earlier by pointing out that they didn’t have an alternate budget. They then created one. It’s a joke that nobody is laughing at. All the GOP’s budget proposal is, is tax cuts for everyone and a spending freeze to keep everything but military spending at it’s current level for the next five years. There original budget had no numbers, no spending and no deficit projections.

It obviously got laughted at. Proposing a budget without actually proposing a budget is fucking retarded. They were once again called out on their bullshit and responded by redoing their budget with numbers. It supplies major tax cuts for anyone and projects a continuing budget of 500 billion a year. It has no way to pay off the debt, no way to decrease the budget and would probably cause an economic collapse within a decade.

Why are Republicans so dumb?!? Seriously, I WANT A TWO PARTY SYSTEM WHERE NEITHER PARTY IS DOMINATED BY RETARDS!!! Obama’s budget might not be perfect, it might not even be good, but atleast it shows promise of fixing the problem. The Republican strategy seems to be to pretend that there isn’t a problem and continue until the problem becomes fatal. Kind of like someone who is eating food laced with cyanide, and knows that the food is laced with cyanide. The Republican budget is economic suicide and doesn’t make any sense.

Ronald Reagan is the one who started this fiscal irresponsibility bullshit. He’s the one who convinced the GOP that the solution to everything is cutting taxes, giving the military more money and ignoring the deficit. He was the first big government conservative and it almost solely to blame for this bullshit mentality.

End the Drug-War!

It’s fucking Vietnam all over again, the drug-war is fucking Vietnam! The U.S. isn’t winning and can’t win. It’s going to go on perpetually and be a huge drain on resources and cost a lot of lives. Billions wasted and thousands killed by black-market drug cartels all in an effort to keep some walmart janitor from going home, getting high and watching Family Guy reruns in his basement.

Lets imagine for a second that our hypothetical Walmart janitor gets arrested on drug charges. How much will it cost to arrest him? To appoint him a lawyer? To take him to court? To toss him in jail? To feed and cloth him for a few years? To appoint him a parole officer when he gets out? To repeat the process when he gets caught with pot again? While all of this is going on, how much does the border war cost? How much pain are black-martket drug cartels inflicting?

Our criminally-insane drug policy is killing people and wasting gobs of taxpayer money. All of this fucking retarded Ronald Reagan bullshit needs to end. I’m not sure if I love or hate Ronald Reagan. On one hand, his stupid fiscal and political ideas really fucked America over during the Bush Jr. years, but on the other hand Reagan inspired the shit ideas which ultimately destroyed the Republican party. Most people realize that increasing military spending and decreasing taxes doesn’t make any sense. The country is now being hit by the fallout of his fucking retarded bullshit idea that the deficit wouldn’t effect us.

Lawlz, I fucked j00r w0rld!

Lawlz, I fucked j00r w0rld!

I get a little sick when I hear conservatives say that they want Palin in office because she is like Ronald Reagan. Bush was like Reagan, look at what that did for the country.

The drug war, like most of Reagan’s initiatives, is stupid and must be stopped.

 

I’m a little pissed off at Obama for his stating that legalizing marijuana wouldn’t help the economy at all. Aside from saving us about $40 billion in costs for enforcing it’s illegality, if it were legal we could get $30 yearly in tax revenue from pot. How does a net gain of $70 billion yearly not help the economy? This is an example of the 10% bullshit Obama is. I still support him, and I still think he is infinitely better than Bush. Still, what the fuck Obama? Legalize pot already!

Even Joe Biden’s daughter is using cocaine, that should say something about the state of the drug war.

Michael Phelps Pisses Me Off

Here is Michael Phelps:

Half-man, half-manatee

Here is Michael Phelps on pot:

Bitchin' watch

Bitchin' watch

Do you see the difference?

I sure as fuck do, THAT WATCH IS FUCKING SWEET!

Anyone who isn’t living in a cave in Pakistan has heard that Phelps was caught on film smoking pot. There was a media shitstorm about it and Phelps apologiced after kellogs dropped him. Some other advertizers kept Phelps on, but for the most part anything which could potentially be sold to children was dropped and his membership to some silly swimming club was suspended for three months in light of his heinously terrible and near unforgivable actions.
In reality, the media shitstorm which descended upon Phelps was not because he smoked pot. Musicians and actors get caught smoking all kinds of illegal things all the time, they get tossed into rehab and then they pop out fine and nobody but tabloids and tabloid readers take any notice.

The shitstorm descended upon Phelps, descended upon him because he is an athlete. Not only is he an athlete, he is the best athlete in the world in his sport. There are six and a half billion people on earth and none of them are better at swimming than Michael Phelps. If Phelps challenges you to a swimming race, there is no point in accepting, he will kick your ass ten times over.
    
Right now, you are probably wondering why any of this is relevent. It is because in America, a useless, consevatarded half-wit named Ronald Reagan decided that he would purge the United States of recreational drugs.  Being a typical conservatard, Reagan was not able to think up a plan that did not involve war in some way and thus declared a war that the US can’t hope to pay for called the “War on drugs”. This war on drugs was and is fought in many ways. The only one relevant to this post being the massive propaganda campaign aimed at convincing people that even thinking about thinking about using a controlled substance will immediately turn you into a fat, lonely slob who spends all day in his basement watching Family Guy and eating Cheetos who can at best get a job as a janitor at the local Walmart. Phelps is being so hit with the shitstick because he proves the drug war propaganda to be false. Phelps proves that you can smoke pot and be wealthy, well liked, active and in shape. Granted, he’s about $30 million poorer now that Kellogs has dropped him, but he’s still fantastically wealthy compared to most people in the world. Because Phelps showed the drug war propaganda to be false, he was forced to apologize and his name will be tarnished, probably forever.
                   
Personally, I don’t think that being a fatty who works a mindless job and spends his free time smoking pot is such a bleak life. I myself, do not use any illegal substances. I need to keep my mind clear so that I can earn a PhD in computer science. However, I take no issue with other people who want to smoke pot and clean floors. Even if I were not striving for a higher education, I still would not use drugs, mostly because I am terrified of having my thought processes effected by some external power. However, I feel no need to impose my desire to not use drugs onto other people. If a person wants to responsibly use marijuana within their own home, why should I notice, much less care?
You may be wondering, why Phelps pisses me off, when thus far most of my rant has been about the war on drugs. Phelps pisses me off because he apologized for using drugs. He pisses me off because he caved to the morality squad and claimed that his pot smoking was “bad judgement”. He pisses me off because he is not willing to admit that he smokes pot. More than anything, he pisses me off for not loudly exposing the drug war to be the fraudulent waste of resources that it is.
