We should lock the door, this time.

I just have to say... Again, those that spout them most about being holy are the ones least likely to live in the manner they demand of everyone else. Robert Bentley, the soon to be ex Governor of Alabama is currently embroiled in a sex scandal of his own creation. After divorcing his wife of 50 years, it comes to light that members of his own family have recorded his sex talks with his top adviser to the media. It is hilarious listening to Montgomery Burns come to life expressing his lust for this power hungry trollop.

What isn't funny is how we have gotten to this point. After years of his castigation of homosexuals destroying the sanctity of marriage and his platitudes about morality, ethics and the baby Jesus.... this walking hypocrisy has finally been exposed as the fraud we all knew him to be. He says Christiany stuff, then tells the poor to hurry up and die instead of expanding medical care. He lets his little sex bunny make decisions that affect all of our lives (anybody remember voting for this prostitute?). She was the major push behind closing down the licensing offices in a year we have an election that requires ids. She apparently had the most say in what agencies got what money.

There are questions and accusations about the Governor using public monies to keep his affair hidden, making his plane manifests private to hide her travelling with him (also illegal). There are direct links from him closing down investigations that were directed at his use of funds and government property. He has fired people whom he as allegedly asked to lie for him. It is the lowest of morality to seek vengeance on people who refuse to be unethical to hide your unethical behavior. He promised us an open government free of corruption... we got the exact opposite.

Take your tart, take yourself and go, governor. You will be impotent in the governors mansion, you can be impotent in your girlfriends house too... atleast it will no longer affect the people of Alabama.

Dippity Doo, I've Got The Biggest Fascist For You

Scene: A large stage set up in a municipal assembly hall, Anywhere America.

A tiny handed Oompa Loompa enters from off stage, scowling, covered in sweat, his beady little soulless eyes scans the crowd for targets.

"What a great group we have today. My voters are the greatest, don't you think? Just great... I mean really. Not like those Muslims, those people want to kill us, really, believe me, that's what they all want. They want to kill you and your families. But not if I am in charge. We will drop so many bombs... the best bombs. Look, I know about bombs, I have the best people telling me about bombs and bombings and how things explode, and collateral damage... great amounts of collateral damage. We can kill them and their kids and family and that will end the problem, just bomb them all. And we won't let them in the country. We will ban all the Muslims until we can be sure they don't want to do us harm, which is what they all want to do."

He squints his eyes into the crowd and sees someone in a headscarf. He raises his hand and points into the crowd.

"Look we have an ISIS member in attendance today, haha. I'm kidding, I don't know, but look at her... obviously a Muslim. Remember 9-11? Remember Sacramento? She is like those people that attacked us, exactly the same, aren't you? GET HER OUT OF HERE!!! Rough her up a bit, no don't, if you do I'll pay your legal bills."

A violent group of men grab the woman towards the door, screaming racial epithets and striking her repeatedly.

"Good, great, good riddance. Now lets talk about the Mexicans. They love me, everyone loves me. And that is why they are gonna pay for the wall. I'm the best at building walls, just look at my buildings, they have walls, and they are the best walls. My wall will keep out all the rapists and murderers and drug dealers Mexico is sending here to take our jobs."

 He thinks of all the money he is making off his memorabilia he has shipped in from Mexico each day to his rallies and smiles.  He scans the crowd and raises his hand and points again.

"Speaking of illegal immigrants, I see one right there. YOU, Mexican... what are you doing here? Is this some plot to hurt me? Are you teaming up with ISIS to take me out? These people won't let that happen. I have the greatest people, they will protect me, they will take you out, they are the best."

A larger mob moves toward the location indicated and grab multiple people of indistinct heritage. They start dragging and hitting and kicking and screaming anti Latino slurs in a frenzy or joyous violence.

"Great, wonderful, that was necessary... we can't have people coming in here to take away our free speech or attack us for saying what we think.  Like those Black Lives Matter protesters... they are in league with the Muslim Brotherhood and the Black Panthers.. basically they are ISIS too. They want to leech off us. They want us to pay for everything while they get a free ride. Not like me, I'm the best. I make so much money, it's alot of money, I mean lots, you can't imagine how much I am worth. But, I see some of those BLM people in the back, we should do something about that, don't you think?"

He raises his minuscule hands and points his fairy like finger in the general direction of a group of Black Republicans gathered together.

"GET THEM OUT OF HERE!!! We don't need their kind here, you are the best, they are the worst. I'd like to punch them in the face for coming here to cause problems. I remember when they used to deal with protesters in much more strict ways. What do you think? Shouldn't we go back to the good old days?"

From the crowd "GET A ROPE!" "STRING THEM UP!"

From the stage "Yes, that's what we should do. Show them they can't treat us like this. Show them we mean business." very quietly "I'm kidding" gleeful deadly glinting in his eyes he thinks of the next group he can single out and how he can deny it.

Steve Hurst: The Sperminator

Justice is not vengeance. Mutilation is not a valid form of punishment. If we follow your "logic" then thieves should have their hands cut off. Escapees should be hobbled. Peeping Tom's should have their eyes removed. Politicians caught in lies should have their tongues removed... you know to make them think twice.  Sexual Counseling is a thing that exists in the real world. It is possible to actually treat some sex offenders in such a way that they can rejoin society that doesn't include you cutting their balls off.

What screwed up world do you live in, as a small government republican, where you think the government has the right or capability to make good decisions about permanent surgical punishment? There was a story a few weeks ago about corrupt collusion between police, attorneys and judges sentencing innocent people. What protections do you propose for this law? How will you protect the innocent from your burning need for blood sacrifice to atone for crimes? Which sexual offenses will this cover? Rape? Does that include statutory rape? Is it just anyone on the sex offenders list? I know you say its just for people over 21 involved with children under 12, But how long before it expands? How long before your bad thinking leads to another crime fitting your punishment, then a new punishment to fit another crime you find too vile for normal justice to be sufficient?

 We do not use our justice system to dole out revenge. We punish through taking away freedom, not altering people physically.

The Point of Disqualification

Where is the line? When do we stop acting as if anyone on the right has any claim to be capable of running our Nation? When do we all stand up and just kick them off the bus? It wasn't when they were arguing over who wanted war more, who wanted to kill more brown people, who wanted to restrict the rights of legal immigrants, the rights of women, the rights of non Christians. Trump pushes war crimes as a virtue, Cruz pushes dominion-ism as inclusive, Rubio runs away from immigration reform he wrote as politically expedient. Kasich, the "moderate", pushes anti abortion laws, voter id restrictions and trickle down idiocy.

They literally compare dick sizes during "debates". They yell and scream and try to be the loudest voice in the room. None of them have rational plans for the future of America. The GOP tries to demand that the base vote for someone they do not want. The party votes for the embodiment of all the horrific bullshit the party has promoted over the last 16 years. Why do conservatives keep voting for an empty headed loudmouth bully? Maybe the answer lies in the Republican Propaganda Machine Fox News, and its endless parade of empty, talking heads. The messages of hating Mexicans, Muslim = Terrorist, Vaginas aren't your own, Christian persecution, the decline of White power, Bootstraps, taking your guns, illegitimate presidents, birth certificates, blue lives bullshit and every other false, fake, made up, contrived piece of "news" they have spread for almost 2 decades.

America needs a true 4th estate. Journalists committed to presenting facts as facts... not opinion presented as gospel. It is time for the end of the Republican party, let it die from all the wounds it has inflicted on itself in its attempts dictating morality through authoritarianism. You now have the ultimate Authoritarian in the lead for your nomination... an Oligarch Fascist your base runs to as the virtuous 2nd coming you have been calling for. A great White Leader, incapable of being swayed, beyond the need of deep reasoning, firm in his dismissing any questions, quick in his calls for violence to silence his dissenters, able to speak his unfiltered mind vomit and watch as your base laps it up like beaten dogs.

Congratulations GOP you have actually done it, you have found the perfect candidate to fit your narrative... Xenophobic, Homophobic, Greedy, Violent, Thoughtless, Vapid, Warmongering, Hateful, Angry, White and Rich. Golf Clap.... idiots.
