🥜 Just Plain Nuts ➖ Open Thread

Do you remember the good old days when we could make fun of world leaders from   Related imageother countries as being nuts? Or at least nuttier than our “leaders.”

Remember when many of our elected officials didn’t appear as crazy as Kim Jong Whoever?

Remember when Representatives like Hank Thompson were ridiculed as nutty for thinking Guam would tip over if too many people lived there?

Now nutty, screechy Image result for Maxine waters caricature imagesMaxine Waters is applauded for insisting POTUS 45 be impeached just because she’s unhappy with the outcome of the election back in November.

Isn’t it amazing that the media cannot for the life of them understand why anyone would vote for Trump but never questions why anyone would vote for Maxine Waters, Hank Thompson, Richard Blumenthal the Viet Nam vet who wasn’t, Harry Reid who was nuttier than a squirrel’s hoard? Why no wondering why anyone would vote for them or a host of other silly, stupid Dems who say silly stupid things or lie on a regular basis?

Personally I don’t like the idea of some lunatic in office. I don’t even like them in charge of the local DMV.

At least at the DMV you can equate the lack of decent service to malice and incompetence and not be concerned about the country as a whole. Or should you? Are they not the symptom of the whole country and government?

Politicians point fingers at each other and assign blame based on political party. So does the media. They don’t so much lean left as lean over and embrace the left. Therefore it’s nuts if we expect them to do the job they should be doing which is inform.

Everything was just about average nuts lately, protests about who knows what by the usual suspects on the left – the victims of just about everything in life. Those with too many feelings and not enough brains.

Don’t misunderstand me, I think feelings are wonderful things. Feelings of empathy, sympathy, love, and other positive feelings are good and should be encouraged. Hate, lust, envy not so much. And whiny little victims of their own feelings? Not so much to not at all.

Ben Shapiro recently cited a Brookings Institute study that said success in America could be traced to three decisions:

Finish high school, don’t have babies before marriage, and hold down a job. According to the study “If you do these three things, you’ll be on your way to the privilege of middle class life, regardless of race, ethnicity, sexual orientation, or gender.”

Seems straight forward advice. However it’s contrary to pathetic bleating about how unfair life it and how white privilege is holding you back.

Therefore sensible is not trending. I seldom use that word because I hate the whole idea of trending as if what a bunch of fools are babbling about is important.

Sheesh!

Think that media can get no worse? I used to think they had hit bottom. Then Trump was elected and I found out they are flat out nuts!

How Low Can CNN Go? Now It’s Covering President Trump’s Ice Cream Habits. Seriously.

“At the dessert course, he gets two scoops of vanilla ice cream with his chocolate cream pie, instead of the single scoop for everyone else.”

In the Time magazine story, that was just one little detail. But for CNN, the network decided to do a special, stand-alone piece on “Ice Cream-Gate.” Yes, this is what CNN now focuses on — when it’s not fabricating news out of whole cloth. Oh, it’s been a Rocky Road for CNN.

Obviously CNN didn’t think that was over the top. Obviously someone in charge allowed it to be broadcast. Obviously that’s just nuts for a cable channel that  self-identifies as “The Most Trusted Name In News”.

Cartoon by Tom Stiglich -

The election showed us how crazy this country has become when both politicians and media lost their minds. Crazy was really trending. Those of us that thought/hoped it was a temporary trend became disabused of that idea with the whole James Comey firing.

Crazy was not only trending – it became a movement. Right up there with hypocrisy.

Are liberal blogs, including the granddaddy of them all, The Daily Kos, any more serious or credible? Take a look below.

Back to politicians. What could be crazier than the re-elections of Nancy Pelosi both as a Representative of her party in the House of Representatives?

What could be crazier than the many re-elections of Sheila Jackson Lee? She’s represented the 18th district of Texas since 1995. Remember that the next time Texas brags about how conservative it is. Because they too have a few cuckoos in  their nest too.

politics Sheeple in the hood!

The crazy is everywhere. The crazies have their voices heard everywhere. If it was only on “Social Media” I might see some hope. I’ve always thought that people that think their every move must be documented and shown to the rest of the world are nuts. Egos that big allow for no intellect in the same head.

Now the crazy is on both network and cable news.

Are newspapers any better? You know that most are not.

The crazy is everywhere and the nuts are all too often in charge.

I often said back in the days when I was #NeverTrump – which ended by the way when he was elected, that I thought he was nuts. I  am still convinced that all his screws are not tight. Some may be so loose they may have even fallen out.

His flips and flops and zigs and zags are a wonder to behold. The only thing nuttier than him is the reaction by the left and the #NeverTrump people who still haven’t gotten over the Republican primary.

I’ll leave the final comment to Madam Maleficent herself in her role as a walking talking example of chutzpah. If her talking about a smell test isn’t crazy, then nothing else even comes close.

    And speaking of nuts – how about this California Crazy Person and her obnoxious and ill informed offspring?

    EXCLUSIVE: California State Professor Brings Her 7-Year-Old To Lecture The Los Angeles Police Department

      Good. Lord. People really have ZERO sense of propriety these days. WOW.

      Some people have moved into lalaland for 10 seconds of fame. Who will they call upon when they are threatened by ‘people’ committing crimes against them. I’m sure the crooks will quickly surrender or run away when lectured.

      • Rabble Rouser Reverend Amy Says:

        LOL – I love the image of a stern-talking-to turning away a violent mob. 🙂

        And you are right, no doubt. But it is unbelievably disturbing to see the politicians people are picking to be their heroes. Maxine Waters?? Really? She is virtually incoherent when she speaks and is demonstrably ethically challenged. I just don’t get it.

  2. Rabble Rouser Reverend Amy Says:

    Great post, Marge. I just did a little rant on Facebook abt the media, too: The lack of journalistic integrity and ethics now, evidenced by formerly good outlets, is truly astonishing. Reporters don’t bother to check the facts at ALL before shooting off at the mouth. The most recent instance of this on a big scale was the report by WaPo, NBC, CBS, and CNN, to name a few, that the Deputy AG threatened to quit over Comey’s (overdue) firing. (And don’t even get me started on the hypocritical reactions to THAT event.)

    This has nothing to do with Trump – I am not a fan, as I have mentioned countless times. This has to do with the far bigger issue of those who are charged with REPORTING, not MAKING UP, the news. Emotion is taking over fact-based reporting, and it is doing the citizenry of this nation a grave disservice on a host of levels and issues. We deserve better, and we should demand better, but too many of us will not, either through ignorance or partisanship.

    There is no room for partisanship and ideology in true journalism.
    And here is the most recent exampt of which I spoke above (h/t Daily Wire):

    http://wjla.com/news/nation-world/deputy-ag-rosenstein-im-not-quitting-didnt-threaten-to-quit-over-comey-firing

    As the Daily Wire article pointed out, the networks have not issued a retraction, either. They are intentionally misleading people for ideological reasons. They are a danger to our society as a whole, and are ginning up controversy/violence as a result.

    Oh, and good news – Comcast is here right now! It took just two months, one week, and $1,500 in trenching fees to make that happen. Woohoo!

    John Oliver’s Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Week

    For years, John Oliver has criticized the estate tax, which defenders, in a smart linguistic move dreamed up by Frank Luntz, long ago labeled the “ death tax”; and the tax code’s raft of loopholes that benefit special interests he identified as oil companies and hedge fund managers. Oliver even briefly established the bogus Our Lady of Perpetual Exemption to draw attention to tax-exempt status granted to churches and charities.

    Back in July 2014, in an episode in which he lamented the Wealth Gap in America” (which has resulted in the richest one percent of Americans controlling 20 percent of annual income), Oliver said, “At this point the rich are just running up the score…What sets America apart is that we are actively introducing policies that disproportionately benefit the wealthy,” such as tax cuts and loopholes like trusts.

    So it’s a little surprising to discover that just months before, Oliver had a tax attorney set up two revocable trusts, one for him and one for his wife, to hide the couple’s purchase of a $9.5 million Manhattan penthouse. Then he used a tax loophole created by Donald Trump himself back in the 1970s, when the current president was merely a prominent New York real estate developer and aspiring celebrity author.

    I can’t wait to find out what Thursday, Friday, and Saturday have in store for Oliver.

      And the staggering hypocrisy of the Left continues. Thank heavens for those who shine a bright light on people like Oliver.

    WATCH: PA High School Assistant Principal Curses Pro-Life Teens

    Shockingly, over 50,000 signatures were given on a petition in support of Ruff.

    • Rabble Rouser Reverend Amy Says:

      This is just infuriating. “Pro-Choice” apparently means only ONE choice. Tom Perez, the new DNC Chair, said yesterday that the only acceptable choice for Dems was to be Pro-Choice. He had to walk it back, but he was VERY clear. So yeah – guess that Ass’t Principal made clear his position.

      I am glad the school accepted his resignation and made a statement abt his unacceptable conduct.

      Still, WOW. Adults need to start acting like ADULTS already.
