It doesn’t take long for a very painful and absolutely disgusting reality to set in when dealing with the GOP. Quite frankly, The Pink Flamingo doesn’t know how susceptible the far left is when it comes to taking lobby money, and I really don’t care. I’m a Republican. I’m disgusted with what I see going on within the GOP. Republican’s no longer give a damn about anyone other than their mega-buck donors.
After a series of emails from an associate, it dawned on me that what is going on within the gun lobby is no different than what goes on with Americans for Prosperity, or the haters of the extreme right. It’s all about the money. They don’t care if people die, suffer, or fall into poverty. All that matters is taking that immortal buck from the Sugar Daddy Big Bucks.
There are a few facts of life within the GOP. Included in those are the following:
- Thou Shalt Not Upset the Gun Lobby
- Thou Shalt Not Upset Big Pharma
- Thou Shalt Not Upset Big Oil
- Thou Shalt Not Upset Defense Contractors
- Thou Shalt Not Upset the Koch Brothers
- Thou Shalt Not Upset Right to Work
- Thou Shalt Not Upset Walmart
- Thou Shalt Not Upset CEOs Who Treat Employees Like Dirt
- Thou Shalt Not Upset The Far Right By Requiring Taxes From Billionaires
But, it is perfectly acceptable to:
- Call life-long taxpayers who are in Social Security Takers
- Call Vets Takers
- Call Senior citizens Takers
- Allow children to go to school hungry
- Require teachers to be paid less
- Support big business by requiring lower wages for employees
- Allow people to die instead of using Medicaid
- Suggest the little people not be educated
- Allow the infrastructure to crumble
- Make high education available for the ultra wealthy
- Impoverish 99.9% of Americans
- Force an extreme version of morality on everyone
- Destroy anyone who might be gay
- Treat Hispanics like dirt
- Pay a worker less for a longer day’s work
- Eliminate the minimum wage
- Basically destroy the spirit of your employees
- Expect your customers to pay more for an inferior product
- Disenfranchise anyone who disagrees with the far right
- And so forth and so on
If anyone dares to expose the far right for what it has become, we are called marxist, socialists, and communists. We are subjected to ridicule, threats, and harassment. Periodically, we have our assigned harassers, who try to make us see the error of our ways.
In other words, what ever the ultra wealthy and ultra powerful wish, the far right is going to do. The cowardly Republicans of the House and Senate will do anything to protect their big donors. The Pink Flamingo suspects there will come a time when some big donor decides they want to stage the ultimate hunt. Does the right empty the prisons for them?
Or, what happens when some big billion buck pervert decides that he wants to hook up with little boys. I guess we’ll discover that it’s A-OK to sell and distribute child pornography and molest little kids.
If a big billion buck donor was gay, the GOP would rush to make sure that gay marriage became legal.
If all this sounds like The Pink Flamingo has nothing but contempt for what remains of the GOP, you are 100% correct. I have nothing but contempt for them. During the past four years, I’ve had the misfortune to see them degenerate into a mass of despicable nothing. All that matters is their billion buck donors. They no longer give a damn about doing what is right, or being honorable. All they care about is padding their pockets while they run for re-election. If they get caught, they do what Jim DeMint did and cash in on a million dollar pay day for services rendered to his donors.
I would compare them to prostitutes, but I don’t want to insult the honest working men and women who are engaged in the world’s oldest profession.
Right about now, I think having contempt for them is being generous!
