Time and again we have multi-millionaire businessmen as presidential candidates.  They sway the populous with their outlandish success.  Businessmen promise that once they’re in office, all of our country’s problems will be solved by putting America on the bottom line.  All the citizens will then be as wealthy and successful as the candidate.  So let’s take a look at that idea.

Rick Perry’s IQ Test

Remember when Rick Perry said, “Running for president is not an IQ test,”?  Well, I thought I’d check the record and see just how smart old Rick really is.  Here are some questions that a governor should reasonably know the answer to if he’s running an entire state.  Let’s see how he does.

1. What’s the minimum age at which an American can vote in an election?

“Those of you that will be twenty one by November twelfth, I ask for your support and your vote.” Saint Anselm’s College, New Hampshire, September 2011  (The minimum voting age in the United States has been eighteen since 1971.)

2. Can you name a city in Mexico?

“Juarez is reported to be the most dangerous city in America.”  Press Conference, February 2011 (Yes, Juarez in is Mexico. No it is not in the US.)

3. What is the minimum age for a presidential candidate?

“I’m glad you’re not twenty one.”  Greenville, South Carolina, December 2011  (Commenting to seven-year-old Catcher Jones who was wearing a tee shirt that read “Future President: Accepting Campaign Donations Now”  Minimum age for a presidential candidate is thirty five.)

4. When did the American Revolution take place?

“One of the reasons we fought the revolution in the 16th century was to get away from that kind of onerous crown.”   Dartmouth College, Hanover, New Hampshire, October 2011  (The American Revolution began in 1775, the 18th Century) 

5. Who was the President of the United States at the time of the September 11th terrorist attacks on New York and Washington D.C.?

“You go back a decade ago with Woodrow Wilson…”  CNN Interview, November 2011. (George W. Bush was president in 2001.)

6.  Can you name three functions of the United States Department of Education? 

“I don’t think the federal government has a role in your children’s education.”  Iowa Campaign stop, August 2011  (No, we were going for Loans, Grants, Accreditation, Legislation or Statistics)

7. What does the U. S. Constitution state about Freedom of Religion?

“Freedom of religion doesn’t mean freedom from religion.”  On the signing of the “Merry Christmas Bill”,  Austin, Texas June 2013  (“Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof.”  The Constitution says to stay out of it all together.)

8.  What is the number of judges on the Supreme Court?

“I trust those independent school districts to make those decisions better than eight unelected and, frankly, unaccountable judges.” Des Moines Register editorial board meeting,  Des Moines, Iowa, December 2011  (The answer is nine.)

9. Name a country that begins with the letter S.

“I want to say it was over $500 million that went to the country Solynda.” Ames, Iowa, December 2011 (Spain, Serbia, Somalia, Samoa…)

10.  Which government entity creates Environmental Protection legislation?

“Somebody has to tell the E.P.A. that we don’t need you monkeying around and fiddling around and getting in our business with every kind of regulation you can dream up. You’re doing nothing more than killing jobs. It’s a cemetery for jobs at the E.P.A.”  Tea Party Republican Debate, Tampa, Florida, September 2011  (Congress generates and passes all federal laws.)

 Bonus Question: How many EPA inspectors are there in the state of Texas?  

(One.  And that inspector covers a regional area including Texas, New Mexico, Oklahoma, Arkansas and Louisiana.)

Well, it looks as though ol’ Rick is right.  As long as no one cares whether presidential candidates know what they’re talking about, running for president is not an I.Q. test.  But remember, if we don’t test the intelligence of our presidential candidates, we can’t complain if we get an idiot president.

The Fighting 113th

Today I heard just how much of an over-blow sense of self importance Ted Cruz has of himself.  He said people considered .him “the root of all evil in the world.”  No one thinks about you that much, Ted.  At the very most you may be the “root of all stupid”.  And that’s only because Dubya is out of politics.
But it’s true that Cruz is one of the Republican obstructionists in the the House of Representatives.  This congress carries on the mission of it’s predecessor the 112th to fight tooth and nail any progress put forth in this country that does not put money in their pockets and those of their corporate sponsors.  And they are on track to succeed beyond their wildest dreams.  The 112th Congress which proceeded them passed a grand total of 231 bills.  To put that in perspective, the 80th, Harry Truman’s famous “Do Nothing” Congress passed 906 bills.

This year to date, the 113th Congress has passed 40 bills, including ten pork barrel/environmental laws, four that named buildings,bridges and/or laws after individuals, seven that reauthorized funding for existing laws,  one taxing influenza vaccines, several congressional awards, another determining the size of a coin blank for the Baseball Hall of Fame and the Fish Freedom Act.

The bill promising back pay to furloughed workers has not been logged because the workers who log these bills are furloughed.

So, what does this mean?  It means that this is the most obstructionist, unproductive, trifling Congress in the history of the United States of America.  And now they are crying that the President will not compromise.

By the way, the number of bills vetoed by the president?  -0

All I can say is, never have so many done so little for so few.

What I Want the Government to Do For Me

This is from my mom:

As a citizen of the greatest country in the world, and

Being free, with liberty and justice for all,

in contract with my representatives to the Federal Government of the United States of America

as the governing body thereof;

I hereby request that they, as a concordance, do the following things for all citizens:

1. Protect us from all threats foreign and domestic, including, but not limited to: Al Quaida, Communism, Homosexuality, Equality of Women, People of Color, People of Asia, birth control, nuclear attack, AIDS, Swine Flu, Religion (excepting fundamental Christianity), occupying moving vehicles without helmets, car seats, seat belts and airbags (except in the case of school children required to ride in busses to back and forth to campus, public transportation, agricultural conveyance, rail and other non-regulated modes of travel) and seeing women’s breasts on network television.

2. Levy taxes upon all Americans in such a way as is fair, equitable and takes into consideration the potential of each citizen to put a percentage of their income back into the economy as investment, which in fact works not unlike taxes in keeping the American economy robust and growth oriented. Those with more disposable income will be contributing more to the economy and cannot be relieved of their income.  Those with low incomes won’t be taxed, and those in the middle will be taxed to the limit of their ability as their contribution to the economy as a whole is less by percentage than that of those with loftier incomes.

3. Allow me to relinquish my privacy in exchange for physical protection and the tracking of intelligence for my own safety.  I will allow the government as a body to perform technical violations of my constitutional rights in this interest.  This includes, but is not limited to: unwarranted search and seizure, unwarranted arrest, due process, the right to representation by an attorney, freedoms of speech, religions and the right to bear arms, in as that the release of these rights will allow the United States Government to better protect all citizens.

4. Make public decisions regarding the availability of health options for women, force procedures on Americans in order to enforce these decisions and make laws regarding the status of unborn children as citizens from the point of conception.  Further, I request that government representatives perform examinations of unmarried women, pubescent and prepubescent girls in order to determine whether or not their virginity is intact.  Additionally, I will allow my gynecological records to be seized by the government for the protection of the president, heads of state, others deemed at risk by said gynecological organs and FBI investigations.

5. Disallow marriage between anyone but a man and a woman citizen in good standing, to the exclusion of homosexuals and lesbians.  This includes, but is not limited to situations in which the sex of one partner technically changes due to: marriages in which one or both partners receives a sex change, people with bone marrow transplants from donors of the opposite sex, people receiving blood donations from those of the opposite sex, and partners who live as members as the opposite sex, such as transvestites and women who wear pants suits.

6. Finally I request that the United States Government take up the responsibility to protect myself and my family by any means possible, with or without notice or consent, at any time in the best interests of the state.

Presidential Religion

Although we’ve had Barak Obama as a president for three years, there are still people (primarily closet racists) who continue to believe that because his parents gave him the middle name “Hussein”, he is a Muslim.  The logic behind that escapes me completely.  That’s like giving a baby the name Jesus and expecting him to crawl on water.  If people’s parents can determine their children’s choices by the names they give them, what about those who call their children Shithead (pronounced Sheh-taid’) or Asshole (Ash-ol’-ay).  If your parents name you Noah are you destined to build an ark?  If you’re named John does it make you a toilet?  Apparently some people think so.  That’s enough of that, now just stop it.

And so we travel into the realm of Christianity.  Listening to Rick Santorum (That sounds like sanitarium.  Does that make him crazy?) you’d think he was a Bible Believer Baptist.  He appears to believe that America should be run according to the Bible which is ironic really, because he is a Catholic.  Catholics have historically not even read the Bible but rather had the clergy interpret it for them.  And  if you really want to live by the Bible there are certain things that must be done, such as slaughtering doves and bulls, which won’t go over well with PETA, making women live in a hut in the backyard during their menstrual periods (if they want to stay in the house they have to stay pregnant) and turning the other cheek every time.

But you can’t just be Christian, of course.  You can only be the right kind of Christian.  Christians who believe the Bible are fine.  Catholics are officially a cult, but a Christian cult with lots of money, so they’re ok.  So this is how it breaks down:

If your savior lived in the Middle East, as Jeff Foxworthy might say, you could be the president.

If your savior lived in the Middle East and wasn’t Jesus, you can’t be president.

If your savior was Jesus, but he lived in the United States, you can’t be the president.

If your religion isn’t one with Jesus in it, you can’t be the president.

If you don’t have any religion at all, you can’t be the president.

My question to Santorum is, “So if you are president, are you going to be subject to the will of the pope?”  That’s right, Catholics have The Pope.  And good Catholics always listen to The Pope.  And since the current pope is a protector of child molesters and was conscripted into the Hitler Youth, is that who I really want running our country?  Not me.  Nope.

So we have issues with our candidates’ religions.  Santorum is a papal puppet with fundamentalist Catholic beliefs, the same beliefs which  created the Inquisition and the Crusades.  Romney is a Mormon, one of the folks who believe Jesus came to the US after he left Israel and visited with the natives.  Ron Paul makes entirely too much sense and Gingrich is a newt and I never trusted lizards of any kind.  So that leaves us with whom?

Obama.  The Christian.

Rick Perry: Stealer

Perry for President

I’ve just completed a short survey of sites on the web and am finding this- Rick Perry is a stealer.  Everywhere I go I see “Perry for President” stuff with his picture on it.  I’ve complained to some of these folks, telling them that that is copyrighted in the Fairweather Arts Catalog ISBN: 978-1-4276-3978-3 and a creative commons license at deviantart.com and that is must be taken down.  After all, I’ve been using that phrase since 2007.  But he’s got a lot of juice (or grease, whatever you want to call it) and I don’t know if they’ll just try and run over me and make it look like an accident.   You know how it is, what’s another dead cat out on the road?

But in truth, I think he can come up with other slogans which will suffice for him.  How about “Elect Perry”?  Or “Rick for President”?  Or “Dick for President”? (that might be more appropriate, naming himself after Nixon). Or “Rick Perry: President”.  See?  He has any number of alternatives.  He could even say, “Vote Perry- another president from Texas”.  I kinda like that one.

But all that aside, I want to talk about some issues.  First off, let’s talk about praying for rain.  I don’t know who he pissed off, but he had a “national day of prayer” (that is the Nation of Texas) a couple weeks ago and now Texas is burning like toast in my mama’s kitchen.  Kinda makes you wonder whose side he’s really on, ya know?  And his hometown of Austin came conveniently under threat just so he wouldn’t have to go to the big republican duhbate.  Now I know that right now in Texas if you drop a contact lens you can start a major wildfire, but this seems much too convenient.  Who exactly is Dick praying to?  The god of hellfire?

And another is that secession thing.  Dick absolutely refused federal funding back when the bailouts were going on.  We didn’t need it by god! (of hellfire?)  But then he went weaseling back to Washington asking for loans on the sly to make up for the money he was too proud to take.  Now why are we dependent on Dick Perry’s pride?  And why are we allowing that to be a factor?  Dick (and many other slow-moving Texans) think we could secede from the Union under some quaint clause in some legal document signed when we came into the union.  Well, since then we’ve signed other documents promising not to secede.  So if we try, we are committing treason against the United States.

But, Texans say, we have the oil fields, the refineries, the chemical companies, NASA, ranches, army bases, navy shipyards and all the natural resources, we can get along by ourselves!  So what is wrong with this picture?  Well, the oil fields just aren’t producing enough, that’s what the oilmen say.  And the refineries are all in pretty poor shape.  They keep blowing up.  Our infrastructure is old.  The chemical companies come here because Texas looks the other way when they expose citizens to toxins.  Our greatest natural resource, water, is becoming a short supply and the military bases?  Well do you really think the US will leave their men behind?  Or their weapons?

And what about Pantex, they say.  Nuclear weapons?  Well, the United States will never leave those weapons in the hands of any whacked out dictator the Republic of Texas could produce.  They would annex the Panhandle of Texas into Western Oklahoma.  Austin ignores it anyway.  They should suddenly get interested now?

And if you don’t collect taxes, which Texans don’t want to pay, how will the King of Texas pay his cronies? How will we pay for those roads and bridges?  Who will take care of the elderly, those on welfare?  Yes, well, those on welfare should WORK!  The truth is, though, that the vast majority of people on welfare are young children.  But, in the Republic of Texas there are no unions.  It’s a right-to-work state, so those children can get jobs just as soon as they’re old enough to stand up and run the unguarded machinery.  And the elderly? Well, they can work too.  And when they can’t, well, they should have saved up their money.  Now they can pray for assistance.

Now if you take all these attitudes and play them on a national scale, you have the basic background of Mr. Perry.  Before you elect another Texas president, think hard, America.  And remember- a cat is better than a weasel.

Sarah Palin- Commit or Get Off the Pot

She’s pretending to run. She’s pretending not to.  What on Earth is Sarah Palin doing?  Is she running for president or isn’t she?  Is she waiting for a sign?  Well here’s one: commit or get off the pot!  The super-sexy Alaskan airhead is stumping around America for no apparent reason.  Is it for an as yet undeclared shot at the presidency?  Is it just narcissism?  Has she gotten hooked on the high of moronic adoring fans who laugh at her stripper pole jokes and quiver at her every wink?  Or is there a deeper insecurity involved here?

Our Sarah, the National Icon of Bluster, License, Ego and Temerity (NIBLET), has gone beyond testing the waters.  She wants to be absolutely certain she can win before she makes herself a national target. The facts, however, belie that strategy.  She’s already a national target and doesn’t have a snowball’s chance in you-know-where of winning.  Facing the possibility of a debate, Sarah has enough native cunning to know she will not do well.  Unfortunately she cannot wait out the entire election in order to avoid them and still be in the running.

Today she stated to a large, adoring crowd, “Obama wants to win the future by investing America’s money in more solar panels and really fast trains.”  Well of course he does.  More solar panels and really fast trains will do nothing but create jobs, provide more energy at lower prices in a way that is not dependent on foreign oil cartels, and give us an alternative to the dangerous, overburdened airline system.  And Sarah wouldn’t want us to have that.  That would be good for the country.

No, instead the NIBLET wants to lower taxes (for her income level and up) and pay off the budget this year.  Now it took us a long time to get the budget up to this level.  I don’t know how they think they can pay it off in one year.  We need to look at five and ten and twenty year budgets and average the repayments out over that kind of time, not pay it all up front at once.  And anyone who doesn’t think so is either a nut or doesn’t understand that our economy (linked very closely with the economy of the entire world) is not a personal checkbook that can be balanced every month, nor a business which can show debits and credits.  The government prints money, something people and companies may not do.  It also has the constitutional responsibility to raise and maintain armed forces, regulate interstate trade, etc. These things must be done constitutionally, no matter if the budget is balanced or not.

The other thing Sarah has wrong is the responsibility of the president.  Obama has tried to take an active role in mediating legislation in order to bring about reasonable changes.  However the republicans in congress blame the president for not coming up with legislation that is agreeable to them.  The president is the head of the executive branch, not the legislative branch.  It is not the president’s job to create or submit legislation.  It is the job of congress.  The president has been kind enough to volunteer to help as congressional republicans have been unwilling to do their jobs, but he is not required to.  He could just as easily let the politicians battle it out politically at the expense of the country.  In fact, he really should just step back and let the chips fall where they may.  After all, the president has the veto on anything that isn’t acceptable.  It would cause a lot of suffering for him to use it as politicians tend to tack important entitlement funding legislation onto bills they want signed.  But if he told them ahead of time that he would veto certain contingencies in a bill and they sent it through anyway, they would be the ones to blame.

So as you can see, Sarah not only has missed out on what is better for the country, she also doesn’t understand the role of the president.  And we really don’t need another confused narcissist in the Oval Office.

Besides, Sarah seems much more comfortable talking about stripper poles.

Rick Perry for President

Well, it’s getting to be that time again, and I can see Rick Perry, that crazy Texan is getting ready to steal my slogan!  I’ve spent six years making the phrase “Perry for President” respectable.  Now all that seems to be going straight into the pooper.

Even though I’m short haired, my fur does move in the wind.  I think that is more honest than lacquering up the old fuzz and gale-testing it.  Besides, you can’t see all my colors unless my fur moves.  And Rick Perry is a Republican, of course, which means he has taken leave of his senses.  And in the state where rednecks still beat the crap out of queers, Rick Perry is woefully short of female companionship… just sayin’…

He’s being a religious man, holding massive prayers for rain and, no doubt, respectability.  But his brothers and sisters in faith are, putting it gently, rather out on the fringe of Christianity.  They tout sleeping with she-demons, natural catastrophes as gay punishment and other rather bizarre ideologies.  Nothing about cats, though, so that’s a relief.  Plus, he wasn’t including anyone but Christians in prayer day even though we have lots and lots of Judeo-Christian-Muslim believers (they believe in the same God) and others: Hindus, Buddhists, Wiccans, and all kinds of other pagans.  I personally am a reformed Quaker, but I can’t stay quiet enough to go to services.  But, you know how cats are.

My main complaint about Rick Perry (besides the economic policy, the immigration policy, the education policy, the transportation policy, the energy policy and most of his other policies) is that he’s using my name in vain.  Do you know how embarrassing it is to have neighborhood dogs coming to the door and you-know-whatting because they think I’m the Perry who does the stuff our governor does?

It’s positively mortifying.

So remember, there’s Rick Perry and there’s the Real Perry.  Yup, a cat is better than a weasel.
