Prick of the Week (11-02-14 to 11-09-14

I promised a prick of the week entry, did I not?  I could say the Cruz camp qualifies for it, maybe Joni Ernst, or Gordon Klingenschmitt for his exorcising Obama and homosexual causing demons.  I could focus on Andy Harris (R-MD) who wants to overturn the will of the people of Washington DC to have their weed.  Oh, it is a long list, and there is no shortage of people I can pick on for it.  However, I have someone in mind, well more than I have somebodies in mind.  If you are easily offended, I would say close this page now, because from here on, it is my declaration, and it is time to start calling people out.

Net Neutrality

Yes, remember out dear internet user who died while waiting on the internet to load, because net neutrality died?  I do, may God have mercy on his soul, because the FCC, GOP, tea party, Conservatives, Libertarians, corporations, and five justices of the Supreme Court will not.  Yeah, that list has grown since the last time I ranted about this topic.  So what has changed?  A lot.

Guess What...

After my little rant yesterday about the opinion piece from Boehner and McConnell, a conservative was nice enough to send me the entire article, since apparently I got it all wrong.  If you could see me right now, you would observe that my eyes are rolling.  Hey, even my eyes need a work out sometimes.  I did thank him for his time, because now I can really see what the plan is...  Well.. No... Not really.

Where to go now?

So, Brussels was burning, might even still be burning, with all the conservatives crowing about their victory, telling liberals to eat crow, it was not high on my list of interests.  It should have been.  You see, the country has taken a conservative turn, and the middle class, poor, and elderly are angry about it.  Not the kind of angry we appear to get here, where we rant on Facebook or blogs.  Not the kind of angry were you write an angry letter, or leave a heated voice mail on the phone.  Like so many European countries, they get angry like Bruce Banner.  And we should not like Bruce when he gets angry, he grows to ten foot tall, turns green, and becomes the Hulk.  And Hulk likes to smash things.

Welcome to the new America.

CNN has called it.  The Senate now belongs to the Grand Ole Party.  As of this moment the GOP has 52 senators, and now we get to look forward to even more dysfunction in the Congress, and representatives whom we elected to represent us, representing big business, big oil, big religion, and the ultra-rich.

What to say...

Today I am going to talk about a subject I rarely do.  I enjoy watching pro-wrestling.  Yeah, its retarded, its fake, it is many things, but I enjoy it from time to time.  For me, there was no better time than the 90's, specifically the Monday Night Wars.  So, in my mind, as someone who stopped watching the WWE after Eddie and Chris died, many things have changed.
