Just Fucking Saying . . . . . !!??

All The Gadfly is saying is -- there ain't much difference . . .

The mannerisms, the smug facial expressions, the bombast and hubris .... fucking uncannily identical.

Don't tell The Gadfly you don't see it dear readers.


Nothing Important . . . Go Back To Sleep . . . .

When The Gadfly tells people he's been doing this blogging crap for a dozen years, he gets more than a few raised eyebrows and side-face smirks ......

But if u want proof ........

Check out the archives going back to 2004.

The Gadfly rests his fucking case.

And to any peckerhead who would care to dispute the facts at hand ......

Sorry -- you've already lost the debate .... Gadfly is the Champion ...


Ain't No Crime to be White, Uptight, and Endorsed by the KKK....

Ok -- so he's got the white robe, pointy hat crowd sewn up .....

Former Ku Klux Klan grand wizard David Duke told his followers Wednesday that voting against Donald Trump in the Republican primary would be an act of "treason," and said none of the establishment candidates should be supported.
"Voting for these people [Ted Cruz and Marco Rubio], voting against Donald Trump at this point is really treason to your heritage," Duke said on his radio program, comments that were spotted by BuzzFeed. "I'm not saying I endorse everything about Trump, in fact I haven't formally endorsed him. But I do support his candidacy, and I support voting for him as a strategic action. I hope he does everything we hope he will do."
Duke then pressured his followers to "get off your rear end that's getting fatter and fatter" and go volunteer for Trump's presidential campaign. The Trump campaign is filled with people who have "the same kind of mindset that you have," Duke assured his audience.
"They're screaming for volunteers," he said. "Go in there, you're gonna meet people who are going to have the same kind of mindset that you have."

Holy fuck -- to have the former Grand Wizard of the KKK give you some lovin' .......

Donald's fans today are singing this song in unison .....

Just fuckin' saying ....

As We Inch Closer to the Idiocracy Abyss . . . .

So apparently there was another Republican "debate" the other night in Houston, Texas.

The Gadfly watched a good portion of the replay.

All The Gadfly has to say is:

The Gadfly has watched children of the toddler sort bicker among themselves who sounded much more intelligible and coherent.

Frankly, the whole embarrassingly sordid spectacle reminded The Gadfly of this:

The Party of Lincoln is a mentally and emotionally unstable train wreck.  And as such - they ought not be allowed within a country fucking mile of the levers of government power while in such a state.

And to the people who are supporting the smug, tawdry and bullying Orangutan --- why do you fucking hate this country so much to want to see that lizard brained buffoon lead us forward in to the 21st century?  What is your all's major goddamn malfunction??

Jeebus . . . .

More GUNS! More GUNS!! More GUNS!!! . . . .

Yes --- because if everyone is packing an AR-15 or a TEC-9, then we'll all be safe.

A wave of apparently random shootings left at least six people dead and others injured in Michigan on Saturday night. As many as six people were reportedly killed in Kalamazoo County, and the suspect was still at large as police swept the area late Saturday, urging citizens to remain vigilant.
Kalamazoo County Undersheriff Paul Matyas told WOOD TV 8 that multiple people were shot at three different scenes. Four people were killed at a Cracker Barrel, and two with injuries were taken to the hospital, police told the network. There were also shootings at a car dealership, where at least two people were killed, and a woman was shot in a townhouse.
 "What It looks like, is we have somebody just driving around finding people and shooting them dead in their tracks," Matyas said." "We seem to be dealing with a worst case scenario, someone driving around shooting," he told NBC News.

This kind of horror is commonplace now -- thanks to the NRA and the conservatives in this country.

They relish the idea of a heavily armed society, where any slight results in guns drawn, just like in the old cowboy movies, and bullets let loose to settle the beef.

It's a sick fucking society.  But Americans apparently are ok with it ... so fuck em.  Get used to massacres like this and when they happen, just shut your fucking mouths about how horrible they all are.... mkay?


It Has To Be Said . . . . And Hopefully It Will Be Acknowledged . . .

Allow The Gadfly be very clear about something as regards his political candidate leanings in this election year.

The Gadfly would love to see Bernie Sanders win and, in doing so, kick some sand in to the faces of the arrogant, bullying and incompetent Democrat political establishment (The Gadfly is looking at you Debbie Wasserman Schultz).

The Gadfly is pretty certain however, that Hillary Clinton will be the Dem nominee, and make no mistake, The Gadfly will support her only because the other side is insanely determined to elect the collective, reincarnated souls of Caligula, Mussolini and Liberace in the incarnate form of one Donald John Trump as the leader of the free world.

But here's a warning to Hillary and her establishment political machine -- do not disrespect and undermine the dignity of Bernie Sanders on your Sherman's march to the nomination.  If you do, you will alienate a very sizable and volatile segment of the Democratic base -- progressives -- and they just might, in order to send a clear, fuck you message, sit out the general election, and let the Republican insane clown posse take control of the White House and the world's greatest representative democracy - and that would be a very, very bad thing for America and all Americans, to which The Gadfly is pretty certain that most democrats would agree.

To some, such an action might sound like bitter grapes, but progressives feel passionately about Bernie's ideas and his desire to see the oligarchs and the plutocrats of this country get their collective dicks knocked in to the dirt so that more Americans can reap a bit more of the economic benefits of this nation's worker's hard earned wealth.

In summary - be classy Hillary - be smart - and be fair and dignified.  Maintain that posture and attitude, and come November when it's time to face the feces flinging, orange haired Orangutan from the other side, the White House will be all of yours for the taking.

Oh -- and btw -- if Hillary and her minions are still weighing the cost/benefit ratio of going thug on Bernie, just look at this photo:

[ click pic to enlarge ]

That is a recently discovered archival photo (which Bernie has modestly declined to publicize) of a young, 21 year old Bernie Sanders being dragged to the paddy wagon for protesting the immorality of racial segregation while he was a student in Chicago 52 years ago.

The Gadfly awaits Hillary's photo(s) showing her putting her integrity and reputation on the line while standing up for such similar ideals and righteousness.

Once again --- congrats in advance Hillary, but don't you dare get too fucking cocky.


"Morals" and "Family Values" --- Hollow Words and Ideals To The Great Donald's Base . . .

It's only fitting that with this evening's news that The Great Donald is being projected to win the South Carolina primary, it should be noted that American conservatives, you know, the people who are always pummeling the rest of us over the head with their bibles about morality and family values and the baby Jeebus, are heading straight down the path to nominating a thrice divorced philanderer, a bigot, a misogynist, a shameless liar and a nasty silver-spoon in mouth bully whose words and actions have the condemned souls of Hitler and Mussolini grinning like Cheshire cats even as they are being eternally roasted on Beelzebub's spit.

The Gadfly swears - the next conservative Republican Trump supporter who gets in The Gadfly's face about his morals and family values or starts talking shit about anyone else's morals or family values, is going to get a size 10, steel toe motorcycle boot planted squarely and firmly in the center of their stupid fucking backdoor cleavage.

Obstruct The Nigger --- That's All They Have Left Now . . . .

Antonin Scalia's corpse was still warm to the touch and the right wing extremists in this country were already foaming at the mouth like rabid dogs about the conservative old jurist's untimely passing.

Within a few hours, the wingnut wurlitzer on the intertoobz was churning out fire and damnation claims that Obama had Scalia murdered (yeah - because nobody has ever heard of a 79 year old, obese man who was also a smoker, keeling over from a heart attack - amiright?) so that he could appoint a liberal judge to the SCOTUS before his term is up.

They were also screaming that Obama has no right to appoint a successor - which The Gadfly ruefully observes shows just how constitutionally ignorant and extremist these so-called "patriotic" Americans truly are, which in The Gadfly's view only demonstrates all too frightfully just how much of a danger these assholes are to this nation's democracy -- so much more so than a rag-tag bunch of medieval religious nuts driving around in pickup trucks in the deserts of Syria.

In fact -- not only should Obama name a successor to Scalia, he is duty bound by the constitution to do so.  And - the United States Senate is duty bound to give that nominee a fair hearing and a fair vote:

Article Two of the United States Constitution places the power of appointing Justices with the President of the United States, stating:
"he shall nominate, and by and with the Advice and Consent of the Senate, shall appoint ... Judges of the supreme Court, and all other Officers of the United States, whose Appointments are not herein otherwise provided for, and which shall be established by Law..."

Nowhere in Article Two of the United States Constitution does it say that the sitting President needs to try and avoid upsetting the delicate political fee-fees of the opposition party by not nominating a successor during an election year -- nowhere does it say that -- and if the right wing and the GOP want to go down that rabbit hole and play that juvenile game, it truly is time to start seriously bandying about the words sedition and traitor when it comes to the right wing in this country --- and not very timorously in doing so The Gadfly might add.

Thankfully Obama is leagues more of an adult and a serious student of constitutional law than the hissy-fit, tantrum throwing right wing assholes are, and The Gadfly is certain the man will put forth a very qualified individual to succeed Scalia.  Will that nominee be the dream nominee that dirty old fucking hippie liberals like The Gadfly have pined for for ages?  Extremely unlikely.  If anything, Obama has proven himself to be a moderate in the mold of Bill Clinton - and progressives like The Gadfly haven't been none too happy about a great many of his policies and positions.

The bottom line is this -- President Obama is a popularly elected President - twice over.  When the people voted him in for that second term, by a landslide, that meant a clear majority of Americans trusted the man with the job of appointing Supreme Court justices should the occasion arise.

Mr. Obama has nearly a year left on his term.  For the GOP Senate, at the behest of their wailing banshees of the right wing to arrogantly say that Obama needs to wait until the election is over to have the incoming president appoint a successor is the height of hypocrisy, not to mention a wholesale abdication of their constitutional duties as prescribed by law.

Oh -- and if anyone honestly is of the belief that if Obama were a white man, the Gop and the right would be treating him just as equally -- you are delusional and you really haven't been paying attention to what's been going on in this country for the past 7 years.

The Gadfly says enough of this childish, boorish bullshit from the Republicans and the right wing extremists.  If they want to go down in history as the party and ideology of democracy's betrayers then so be it -- let the fuckers do it and then let them reap the ugly, legacy stained ignominy that will be their due reward.
