Ornery Bastard

The Conservatives are pushing all the buttons they can find.
Like paranoid ferret's on crack in a small wire cage they are frantically chewing on the wire mesh that holds them prisoner.
The problem is, that wire mesh cage is one of their own making.

I am an Ornery Bastard, I came by it honestly enough, it is in my genetic history.
My Grandfather on my fathers side was an Ornery Bastard too.My Father is no slouch if he feels the need to get his point across to a particularly unreceptive dolt.My Great Grandfather I can only go by family lore, but that was one old man you didn't tangle with, ever, according to surviving witnesses.
Something about the particular strain of Scotch / Irish we are I assume.

I am a reasonable enough guy, I don't actively go looking for trouble (anymore).
But after having to listen to, watch and deal with the vitriolic, mindless all encompassing hate of the so called Conservative Republican Party since I was old enough to become aware of my political surroundings, about thirty years, I am not going to sit by and let it go unanswered.
I believe the legendary Steve Gilliard said it best, God rest his soul,
" have a choice: be a fighting liberal or sit quietly. I know what I am, what are you?" --

Having never in my life being one to sit quietly,that has meaning to me.

The Conservatives, the Christopaths and the Right Wing Trolls who continually, day after day, try to force feed their twisted version of what it means to be an American, reinforced by the media in this country, has taken it's toll.I have very little patience for it anymore.

When the most important news item I see first thing in the morning is how much someones haircut cost, or whether or not someone is showing enough patriotism for
not wearing a two dollar lapel pin, MADE IN CHINA,it's enough to make me shake my head in disgust.
When I , and millions of my fellow countrymen are accused of being TRAITORS, because we refuse to mindlessly follow the obscene bloodlust of the warmonger class and it's perverted minions, I draw the line.
You have to look no farther than the appointed President and his staff of paid character assassins and proven liars who purposely leaked the identity of OUR OWN undercover CIA agent to the press,for purely political reasons, who then published that information unquestioningly, if you would like to observe traitors in our midst.

Add into this toxic stew an obstructionist Republican party, torturing people, the mulching of our Constitution at every turn, the bankrupting of our treasury, uncontrolled graff and corruption, and you will, if you have been paying the slightest bit of attention, start to see why I give no quarter to this murderous pack of jackals.
A President of The United States of America who gives his middle finger in answer to repeated attempts at pointing out that what he is doing is illegal.
The ruling elite of the Democratic party do not get a free pass in my contempt of what passes for politics in this country either.
They have completely abdicated any responsibility to uphold the oath each and every one of them swore to protect and defend the Constitution of our country.
So my advice to you is, if you are looking for someone who is a doormat and will sit quietly and do what his so called betters tell him he should do, find someplace far far away from me.

Respect begets respect, and like Rodney Dangerfield, I don't get no respect, and neither does anyone else in this country who doesn't have a net worth of several million dollars.

I am not going to sit quietly and I am going to continue to point out and highlight the grievous injustices that seem to happen by the hour in this country.
I am going to be rude about it too.

    Given that your family history seems to indicate that the ornwrybastard gene breeds true, I think you should get a very large grant to continue the process. This country needs a great big whole bunch of folks like you. Please keep on keeping on!

    Being rude to sick-fuck right-wing scumbags kicks fucking ass!

  3. You don't think I like blogging, do ya? At least not what we do at the Brain, but we have to speak up, all of us with one big loud voice. I put my ass on the line for the country when I was young. Now I yell and scream from the cheap seats, but there's a lot of us up here and I think people are finally listening.

  4. Standing on chair clapping.

    Can I be an onery bastard too? I've got the celtic blood lines but must have gotten a different strain.

    Excellent rant, dood.

  5. Fixer, dude, I have a long way to go before I can speak with the authority that you do.
    No, as a matter of fact, I don't think any of us enjoy doing this, I know I don't because it makes my stress level spike. But if the message is getting out like you and I both hope it is, then maybe I can cut back on some of the vitriol. I realistically don't see that happening in the near future though.

  6. can I too join the ornery bastard club....Please ? I come from a long sufferin' family of repugs.....Nixon Lovers ( kid you not ???!!!)....
    I love your image of a ferret on crack- dead on.....

    I come here when I need a sobering laugh.....

    ( I think someone should sell Constitution Doormats at the Repug Convention- would be a HUGE hit...along with Larry Craig Urinal Cakes....)

  7. can i join too.... one of the biggest problems we have is that there arent enough people like you --- opening their mouths.

    when i see how the MSM has been SO fucking complicit in this mess it drives me bonkers... but that is a whole other post

    thanks ornery --- we need folks like you

  8. Fucking A, Brother...couldn't have said it better. For all our sakes, stay fucking ornery!

    Hey do you work with Fix? I'll be back in NYC next week and I plan on looking you guys up.
