It’s pretty clear that the GOP’s Obama Derangement Syndrome has gone off the deep end and has put our country in deep financial peril. This great article goes on to explain just how this terrible “illness” is affecting the country…
The spectrum of behaviors characterized by abnormal mental or behavioral patterns manifest as violations of normalcy, including a person becoming a danger to others, is a broad definition of insanity. Albert Einstein defined insanity as “doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results,” and his definition aptly describes the Republican Party for the past thirty years. However, since President Obama won re-election three weeks ago, members of the GOP in Congress have gone off the rails, and the consequences to the government, and 98% of the people, represents a clear danger to the nation’s fragile economic recovery. Even though the election proved voters…

Dedicated to all the right-wing assholes who thought embracing the caveman rhetoric of the Pee-Party-would forge a path to the White House. Now, many, who willingly sold the most relevant parts of their very souls, and minds,inundated with hopes of crushing all that was/is Obama-are “attempting” to suddenly portray a sudden about face…concerning their persistent, uncompromising ideas of compromise. As far as the modern day version of the party of “Grand Old Pricks” becoming anything closely resembling relevant again=Listen to Carole-“It’s Too Late.”~Daryl

Thanks to a friend from long ago, I was directed to the link above that highlights a most racist past history of one of America’s favorite soft drinks.
There was nothing “soft” about the original version of Coca’ Cola. It actually used to have cocaine as one of its main ingredients. Fearful, that many Black folks would drink too much of this evil elixir and start rightfully exacting revenge against racist treatment they suffered from inbred idiots(Mostly Southern White Democrats)-there was an attempt to outlaw its consumption by Black people. Really? These racist, predominantly democratic, and demonically possessed hooligans actually tried to physically assault Black people who were in possession of a bottle of “Coke.”
Along came the creators of Pepsi, who had no problem appealing to EVERYONE. Suddenly, with the speed of today’s Republicans, who are now suddenly “genuinely interested” in resolving the issues of illegal immigration-Coca’Cola’s creators removed the cocaine and infused sugar as an “appropriate substitute. ” Instead of creating coke addicted citizens, they chose to provide them with high-blood pressure, diabetes and obesity instead.
Read this story in The NYTimes and see how rampant racism even dictated the distribution of a supposed “soft- drink.” Motherfuck a can of Coke!!!! ~Daryl

Here are two good rules of thumb. When a president starts to work the list of who he wants serving in the Cabinet, it’s important to get the Secretary of State selection right. Choose a great or at least a pretty good Secretary of State, and it doesn’t matter if the Secretary of Transportation or the Interior Department is a stiff. Nobody remembers who ran the Labor Department for Bill Clinton or George H.W. Bush and nobody cares either.
The other rule of thumb is the earlier a career politician denies any interest in running for the presidency the sooner you know they’re lying through their teeth.
Hillary Clinton was a pretty good Secretary of State and yes, she’s running for president in 2016. This falls under the category of a stone-cold lock. Her prospects were boosted by the four years…
