Stand your ground
Shoot first, ask questions later

The collaboration between the GOP and the NRA is a success.  They came up with an ingenious solution to many problems plaguing America:  GUNS!

Here are just a few examples on how the plan will work, saving billions in taxpayers’ money and cutting Big Government:

Guns in schools
Proper education, NRA style

Improving education

Teachers and guns
Back off!

Getting rid of bad teachers:  mandatory guns for students in the classrooms.  Instead of wasting time on stupid subjects like science and history, let’s teach kids how to shoot.

Getting rid of bad students:  mandatory guns for teachers.  And those liberal teachers better learn how to shoot straight…fast…because kids are quick learners.

Arizona Group Plans To Give Away Free Shotguns To People In High-Crime Areas

Who needs police with their stupid unions?  Stand your ground, my fellow Americans!  Shoot first and ask questions later.  And if it is your mother-in-law sneaking up on you in YOUR house – too bad.  She should have known better!

Prison overcrowding

Guns on cars
Cars: NRA version

Reducing jail population in the US – easy.  No government needed!  Guns for all inmates will do the trick.  And this will create a great reality show that all red-blooded, real Americans will enjoy.

This brilliant move will also save money wasted on Death Row inmates’ expenses like judicial process, lawyers and other unneeded crap.

Guns and road rage
Where is your gun?

Eliminating bad driving habits (or bad drivers)

Over 6 million car accidents happen every year in America.

Solution:  a mandatory gun in every car.  We don’t want Big Government to butt in on our affairs.  See a moron driver – shoot!  That will bring some excitement and fun on the roads.

Guns for all!
National citizen safety in action

Birth control, the Republican way

Pro-life American patriots are determined to outlaw baby-killing abortions and they will fight tooth and nail to preserve the American freedom to kill one another with concealed guns and assault weapons.

Health care.  Only in America do we have the freedom to kill 30,000 citizens but we don’t have the right to health care.

The solution to many of America’s problems is simple.  And the National Rifle Association and their comrades in the Republican Party are willing and able to implement it.

Obsession with guns in America

Happy shooting!  And Walmart will help with ammunition.

The Right to be Stupid

The “right to die” movement is energized by Sarah Palin’s brilliant performance during the CPAC convention.

“In America we have rights to die in any way we want,” she declared.  “We are fighting for Freedom and it is up to us whether we want to kill ourselves with guns or huge sugary drinks.  And no socialist, Muslim, Marxist President will deny us real Americans our rights to be stupid.  This is America, Mr. Barack Hussein Obama!  And the rest of the world (I have no clue what it means) can observe and envy our brilliant politicians like my role model, Donald Trump, and yours truly, Sarah!”  Let Freedom ring!

Proliferation of guns
Take this, Obama!

 

Defending our freedom!

“For every fatal shooting, there were roughly three non-fatal shootings. And, folks, this is unacceptable in America. It’s just unacceptable. And we’re going to do something about it.” George W. Bush.

Gun control laws.
Great communicator
Gun violence in America
Can we shoot straight?

“For every fatal shooting, there were roughly three non-fatal shootings. And, folks, this is unacceptable in America. It’s just unacceptable. And we’re going to do something about it.” George W. Bush.

I totally agree with our greatest leader of all times! How can we protect our freedom and our children if we cannot shoot straight? It is unacceptable. W. is the man! He is a better communicator than any of us, horses!

Don’t bite the hand that feeds you. You may need that hand one day.

AIG is suing the US Government (taxpayers) for saving its ass. This omnipotent company now states that you, the taxpayer, prevented it (AIG) from committing suicide. So now it has to continue to rob its customers (taxpayers) because that is the only way it operates Result: the taxpayer bears full responsibility for being cheated and that is why AIG is suing its customers (the taxpayer) for being cheated by AIG. This is exquisite logic that only us, horses can understand.

The definition of insanity

The definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results. When I am trying to make sense of some actions and statements by members of the Republican Party, some interesting parallels come to mind.

Taxes and the GOP

Taxes

Let’s cut taxes for the rich and the economy will grow.

Republicans tried it again and again with disastrous results.

So what is the new approach adopted by the GOP?  CUT TAXES!

Gun control laws

More people are shot in America than in the rest of the developed countries combined.

The GOP proposed solution?

MORE GUNS!

So Americans buy more guns.

And more people die.

And now after 20 little kids were killed by a gunman, Republicans came up with the brilliant idea: Let’s arm teachers.

In order to do that, all teachers will have to complete firearms training.

Here we come, Police Academy!

Elections

Republicans lost the election because a sensible candidate could not win the GOP primary.

But they say: WE LOST BECAUSE THE CANDIDATE WAS NOT CONSERVATIVE ENOUGH!

Is it just stupid stubbornness or is it a pathological case?

Crazy fringe of the GOP
Way to go, GOP!

But we’ve got to get rid of these nuts, so go ahead, Republicans. Just continue to be stupid.

We’ll see if that will help you win the next election.

Make my day!

My fellow rich Americans. This country is galloping towards the “fiscal cliff.”  We, the select top 2% of horses  in America, we, the “Romney” horses challenge you to impress and demonstrate to that  remaining 98%, you know, those insignificant and less American Americans, that while we are proud of and deserve our superior status, we are willing to increase our tax rate by 3% out of  the goodness of our hearts.  We are also cognizant that if we don’t, that inept, lowly 98% may just drag us with them over the cliff.  Please tell our show horse, Mr. John Boehner, to get busy and start pulling the wagon away from the cliff’s edge.

Nate Silver’s Truth Serum

Nate Silver, the New York Times’ statistical election forecast wizard, really saved my sanity these last six months. The election for me, and I’m sure for many others, was a vindication that right (fair, just thinking and action) makes might, and that “doing the math”, the alchemy of making gold from an expanding rainbow, really counts.

Nate Silver, the New York Times’ statistical election forecast wizard, really saved my sanity these last six months. The election for me, and I’m sure for many others, was a vindication that right (fair, just thinking and action) makes might, and that “doing the math”, the alchemy of making gold from an expanding rainbow, really counts.

The election was my Passover Process, feeling the repression personally and politically, having taken many quicksand laden steps over several decades to finally reach another horizon toward the promised land. Nate Silver was my hefty staff, my divining and dividing rod, that pointed my heart and mind toward the mountaintop, giving me strength and calming my spirit during my daily journey.

Nate’s great statistical mind, sculpted by his parents’ commitments to political science and activism, became the guiding light for many anxious liberals like me. Every day, like others living underneath the cloud of financial and civil rights uncertainty, I sought his truth serum, my Valium, his carefully crafted dose of hair-splitting sunlight.

Relief and optimism after Obama reelection.
Hew hope

Then finally, several weeks before most pundits and politicians woke up from their long, loud, snoring snooze, I sighed. . . . Electricity tingled throughout my spine, raised the hairs on my head, and settled my mind. I knew from Nate’s analysis that President Obama had a very high probability of being re-elected. Nate’s rich, mellow, salty, barbecued, baked, refried, stir-fried, boiled, black, brown, green, red, white and navy statistical bean count told me so. These beans sprouted up from all over the swinging cities and states of Cleveland, Charlotte, Detroit, Des Moines, Denver, Miami, Madison, Minneapolis, Nashua, Norfolk, Nebraska, and Nevada.

I knew that some of the cloud would now be lifted. I knew that, again, Obama’s presidency would bend the arched rainbow just that much closer toward a more inclusive, just, economically stable and perfect union. And I knew that, again, I would feel safe and loved–and that politics is really personal.
