Reasons Not To Vote Republican #62158

Florida GOP Congressman, Gus Bilirakis is “excited” to announce his first “annual” summit for women that will feature “relevant topics” for women “that have a direct impact on their lives.”

Like gardening. And weight loss. Yup. And nope; he’s not kidding.

Bilirakis opposes Obamacare, a health care law supported by most Americans, but one that especially benefits women by making their basic health care, including contraceptive care, more accessible and affordable. He doesn’t like that part, so instead he’ll give gardening tips.

Bilirakis also voted many times against reauthorizing the State Children’s Health Insurance Program [SCHIP] which provides access to health care for children of low-income families., but, hey, he has some low-cal recipes for y’all.

The summit also features financial planning advice for women, even though Bilirakis voted against equal pay bill in 2007, and voted against the Lilly Ledbetter Fair Pay Act of 2009.

Bilirakis also opposes marriage equality. And he voted against the Violence Against Women Act. And against paid parental leave for federal workers.

But again, he’ll tell you how to grow your own salad.
Balenciaga—Spanish for “suckers will buy anything”—already pranked fash-holes with a $2,145 hideous knock-off of the luxurious IKEA bag and created CROCS on steroids, has a new shirt for y’all.

Balenciaga’s website is selling the “double” shirt; the one on the left sells for $1,490) and the one on the right is the cheaper version, for $1,290.

And, no, you’re not seeing things: the shirts are button-down dress shirts sewn onto t-shirts.

That’s all.

Complicit _____ has been keeping a lower profile lately, well, at least after her cheerful smiling selfies in Jerusalem while children were being murdered a few miles away.

But this week she reappeared on social media and posted a picture of herself with one of her children … while Daddy’s Corrupt Administration is fighting off rumors that they lost 1500 immigrant children that they took away from their parents.

Out of touch doesn’t begin to explain it …
Mitt Romney revealed this week that voted for his wife, Ann “Let Them Eat Cake” Romney in the 2016 presidential election because he couldn’t vote for _____ or Clinton.

His wife also revealed this week that she didn’t vote for Mitt in the 2012 presidential election.

Alabama GOP Congressman Mo Brooks, who just a week ago claimed rising sea levels was due to rocks falling into the oceans, now claims that “people who lead good lives” don’t have pre-existing conditions, and people without pre-existing conditions have “done things the right way.”

So, you know, if you get cancer, it’s your fault.

If you have a heart attack you’re to blame.

Basically, Books is claiming that people don’t deserve affordable healthcare because “people who lead good lives” don’t have pre-existing conditions; and if you do have a pre-existing condition, you probably deserve it because you have not been living a “good” life.

Again, the GOP does not care about anyone but themselves and their donors.
Kim Kardastrophe met with _____ this week at the White House to discuss prison reform.

Seriously. Two of the bigest asses in the world in the same room!
Reasons Not To Vote Republican #12866

GOP Congressman Dana Rohrabacher told a group of Realtors that homeowners should be able to refuse to sell their property to LGBT buyers:
“Every homeowner should be able to make a decision not to sell their home to someone (if) they don’t agree with their lifestyle. We’ve drawn a line on racism, but I don’t think we should extend that line. A homeowner should not be required to be in business with someone they think is doing something that is immoral.”
His ignorance ignited a protest by a Realtor gay-rights group, prompting the National Association of Realtors to withdraw its recommendation that members send campaign contributions to Rohrabacher.

Perhaps we should suggest that homeowners be allowed not to sell properties to Republicans?
I have been sharing this everywhere because it makes me giggle … It was posted on this here blog in my post about Roseanne by Debra She Who Seeks, and she said...

The best joke I've heard so far about this is:

Use "Ambien" in a sentence, Roseanne.

"I Ambien a racist!"

I’m still giggling.

New York Republican Congressman Peter King had a _____-sized Twitter meltdown last week when New York Jets acting owner Christopher Johnson said he would pay the fines for any of his players who continued to kneel during the national anthem:
“Disgraceful that @nyjets owner will pay fines for players who kneel for National Anthem. Encouraging a movement premised on lies vs. police. Would he support all player protests? Would he pay fines of players giving Nazi salutes or spew racism? It’s time to say goodbye to Jets!”
Yes, he equated a peaceful, nonviolent protest against racism and discrimination in America with being a Nazi.
On this rainy Memorial Day weekend, at a home in Smallville, one husband said to the other husband …
“You wanna see a movie today? There’s a documentary on Ruth Bader Ginsburg at the Nickelodeon in Columbia. We could go and them have lunch at Michael’s after.”
Long pause and then the other husband says …
What do you wanna do today?’
I know!
Not to be outdone in the GOP Idiocy Contest, we have a Democrat …

Democratic Florida state Congresswoman Kim Daniels, an exorcist preacher whose bill requiring all public schools to display “In God We Trust” goes into effect this summer, has some thoughts about dolls:
 “Most idolatry is rooted in fetishism. Simply put, a fetish is an object with a spirit attached to it. If we’re not vigilant, we can open doors to familiar spirits in our lives and homes simply by the items we possess and the practices we keep.”
Dolls have filled with sprits invading our homes from toy stores.

Last year Daniels went on Facebook Live to pray against the witches attacking Trump, and she also made news this year when she thanked God for slavery because otherwise she “might be somewhere in Africa worshiping a tree.”

Seriously, shouldn’t she be a Republican?
Okay, I posted my bit about Roseanne, but the same day that happened, we learned that 79-times as many people as we thought had died died in Puerto Rico during Hurricane Maria.

Over 4,000 people dead.

Keep that in your head and let Roseanne wash away.

Republican Missouri Governor Eric Greitens resigned this week amid a sexual misconduct scandal and allegations of misuse of a charity donor list; Greitens had previously said he would not quit his post despite the allegations against him and a possible impeachment,.

The traditional family values candidate, and _____ lover, was accused of taking and transmitting a non-consensual—partially nude—photo of a woman with whom he was having an affair.

What? A family values Republican cheating on his wife? Who’d a thunk it?
We stared watching Trust this week, the story of the Getty family. It stars Donald Sutherland so, yeah, it’s good. But the butler, Bullimore, played by Silas Carson is kinda tickling my ivories.

We’re also watching Genius: Picasso, and Charlie Carrick plays one of Pablo’s mentors; he could mentor me any day. Am I using that word right?

And on this washout weekend, I watched Mark Felt: The Man Who Took Down The White House and loved, for all the right reasons, Marton Csokas as acting FBI director L. Patrick Gray; he could interrogate me any time.

Just sayin’.

My goodness, I better keep Daughter's American Girl doll boxed up!

Agnes Goldberg-DeWolfs said...

How depressing. I'm almost embrassed to admit I'm an American. If my husband and I were weren't so old, we move abroad.

anne marie in philly said...

GOPricks sure are some kinda stoopid, ain't they? VOTE BLUE 2018!

Deedles said...

The stoopid is so strong today that I think a couple of my brain cells were fried just from me reading this.
Just a thought, maybe all of Kanye's t'Rump rimming was to ease the way for Kim to get all up in there. I think I'll go throw up breakfast now.

Deedles said...

Oh, one more thing. Do ya think that doll woman has binge watched that Talking Tina episode of The Twilight Zone one too many times?

Leeanna Henderson said...

Marton Csokas, Yeowza! That handsome NZer can arrest and frisk me all day and night. Sorry, just sayin.

Raybeard said...

Those 'double shirts' really take the biscuit - and the biscuit can have them - PLEASE! Who on earth would so much as DARE to wear one in public, or in front of anyone at all? Sheeeeesh!

Helen Lashbrook said...

I'm with Raybeard on those shirts; all they do is emphasise just how completely designers have lost it

Debra She Who Seeks said...

Glad you enjoyed that Roseanne joke -- I wish I knew who originally came up with it! I heard it on a Canadian TV talk show.

Dave R said...

So, why isn't Bilirakis wearing a Balenciaga? That's about his sped... speed.

Ivanka isn't out of touch, she just doesn't like children who aren't blonde and white and rather Aryan looking.

Someone told me Mo Brooks was Mel Brooks, dumber, younger brother.

You should have captioned that pic of KK and the Idiot Jerk... cause you can see he's thinking "I'm going to eat this for lunch."

And Kim Daniels? She actually believes she a registered Republican... really... I'm being serious here.

Pearly Gates said...

I can not believe color and gay citizens and lifestyles are STILL A ISSUE in 2018. We should be way pass this by now. This country hasn't learned a thing from history.

Professor Chaos said...

I've been looking for a shirt that makes it look like I have really bad static cling and am really unobservant!

Bob Slatten said...

@Pearly
You'd think so, right?

::::sigh::::

Blobby said...

would it be wrong to say the former governor of Kansas could cheat on his wife with me? Yeah....it probably would.

Bob Slatten said...

@Blobby
I kinda had the same thought .......

Mitchell is Moving said...

Thanks for sharing Debra's comment. It made me laugh and i needed a good laugh after reading about the rest of these assholes.
