Meanwhile... Back in the Real World...




Representative Diane Black, a Republican from Tennessee, has introduced a bill to deny all federal funding to Planned Parenthood...

(*ROLLING MY EYES*)

* FOLKS... DON'T GET ME WRONG! I'M NOT "ROLLING MY EYES" BECAUSE I OPPOSE BLACK'S BILL. NOPE. I HEARTILY SUPPORT IT! HERE'S THE DEAL, THOUGH... IT'S ALL KABUKI THEATRE.

(*SHRUG*)

* HERE'S THE LINK TO BLACK'S BILL.

* NOTICE... EIGHTY CO-SPONSORS.

* READ THROUGH THE NAMES. DO YOU SEE BOEHNER'S? DO YOU SEE BOEHNER'S TOP DEPUTIES'?

* FOLKS... I BELIEVE WE (THE GOP) HOLD 247 SEATS IN THE HOUSE. GUESS WHAT? BLACK AND HER EIGHTY CO-SPONSORS REPRESENT LESS THAN A THIRD OF THE GOP CAUCUS. (THE G*O*P CAUCUS...)

* HEY... YA WANNA BE FURTHER DEPRESSED BY THE REALITY AS OPPOSED TO THE HYPE? HERE YA GO!

* YEAH, FOLKS... THAT'S LEGISLATION TO STOP FUNDING ABORTIONS VIA PLANNED PARENTHOOD SUBMITTED BY SENATOR DAVID VITTER BACK IN JANUARY. NOTE: EIGHT (8) CO-SPONSORS. SO NINE "YEA" VOTES OUT OF... 100 SENATORS... 54 OF THEM "REPUBLICANS."

(*SHRUG*)

* FOLKS... I FEAR WHAT WE'RE DEALING WITH IS JUST ANOTHER DOG AND PONY SHOW; ALL RHETORIC; NO SUBSTANCE.

* PERHAPS INSTEAD OF "GOP" STANDING FOR "GRAND OLD PARTY" WE SHOULD RENAME THE PARTY "FUO" - "FOOL US ONCE..."

* NAH... THAT WOULDN'T WORK... AFTER ALL... WE'RE NOT REALLY TALKING "ONCE"... NOW ARE WE, FOLKS?

Yes it is always the we have tried but failed..... now send us more money to make sure we defeat it next time. I grow very weary of the grandstanding and no one is simply ready to (Roll up their sleeves) get it done. I didn't have a lot of respect for Boehner before he became speaker. I have even less now.
