“The time has come,” the Elephant said,
“To talk of many divisive things:
Of Guns and Gays—and Fox false news—like stealing Banks
Of garbage jobs and janitors, the money of Wall Street Kings–
And why the sea is boiling hot with giant oily springs—
And whether corporate pigs can fly with red deficit wings.”
(Apologies to Lewis Carroll)
The proud majestic elephant symbol has been horridly soiled and despoiled by the current Republican Party, and has faded away into becoming a cartoon character, cloaked in the American flag. And the marvelous memory attributed previously to the pachyderm that never forgets has fallen into the Republican’s daily divisive talking points coordinated by multi Media Centers, to all their talking heads.
Why has B.S. been transformed into extra excessive E.S.? (Elephant S**t) Even though the bull has four stomachs, and the elephant has only a single stomach, the pachyderm leaves about four times the amount of manure than the common bull, and we know that the greater amount of the fertilizer, the greater the explosion and damage to the American psyche.
Dr. Goebbels showed the GOP how to lie: “If you tell a lie big enough and keep repeating it, people will eventually come to believe it. The lie can be maintained only for such time as the State can shield the people from the political, economic and/or military consequences of the lie. It thus becomes vitally important for the State to use all of its powers to repress dissent, for the truth is the mortal enemy of the lie, and thus by extension, the truth is the greatest enemy of the State.” Sieg Heil! The GOP now blatantly lies at the drop of a sound bite and will say or do any egregious act to bring down President Obama along with our nation.
EXAMPLE OF AN E.S. LIE INFECTION OF A SEPTARIAN NEIGHBOR: (From an open window in his car)
NEIGHBOR: “I hate Obama!”
ME: “Why do you hate President Obama?”
NEIGHBOR: “I don’t know I just hate him!”
ME: “But why …because he’s Black?”
NEIGHBOR: “OH NO! I’m not bigoted!”
ME: “Then why do you hate him so much?”
NEIGHBOR: “Well, I guess it’s because he spends too much of our money.”
ME: “It was just announced Obama has spent less money than any of the modern presidents. What about George ‘W’ putting two wars, two massive tax cuts and Medicare Part D on a credit card with no intent to pay back?”
NEIGHBOR: “I didn’t like him either.” (Drives off with unexplained hatred intact)
Many of us remember Sgt. Joe Friday saying: “Just give us the facts, M’am.” URGENT GOP CLARION CALL: “No more facts, just attacks” Today’s GOP symbolic elephant has become a pachyderm of perjury, prevarication and psychological projection, cloaked and wrapped in the American flag. We now know use of Projection (lies) means going against your enemies’ greatest strength and in the current Republican usage of this psychological tool they will tell straight out lies.
E.S. EXAMPLE: Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell voted along with 30 white male Senators against the Violence Against Women Act and then declared shortly thereafter that all the Republican Women in the Senate voted against the Act. Not so. Two Republican Women Senators, Kay Bailey Hutchison and Olympia Snowe, voted for the Violence Against Women Act. Then, Senator Lisa Murkowski announced that she regretted that she had voted against the Violence Against Women Act, after getting an earful from her women constituents: “It makes no sense to make this attack on women. If you don’t feel this is an attack, you need to go home and talk to your wife and your daughters.”
Then McConnell claimed and added it was President Obama who has waged a War Against Women. Oh Reilly? Ah… Oh really? Tell me more.
Random thoughts: The GOP E.S. Activist Supreme Court created and established CITIZEN UNITED, a new Corporate Money Law of Fee Speech to replace the Constitution’s First Amendment of Free Speech.
SCOTT WALKER= The complete and consummate E.S. creator and GOP dispenser of E.S. lies (manure) who is Scott free of truth and justice and has had to hire Criminal Attorneys to defend him from his former official activities against Wisconsin’s laws and ethics.
GOVERNMENT HATING GOP – By what stretch of sanity does the American voter want to turn our precious democracy over to a party that hates our U.S, government almost as much as the foreign terrorists that we protect against, so all the government functions can be privatized for profit?
GOP SCREAM OF VOTER FRAUD – In Wisconsin it is DemocraticVoter suppression that is the GOP fraud. The other huge fraud kept under the radar is the privatized GOP voting machines and voting counting machines, with GOP proprietary counting and recounting that assures the Republican’s as the winner.
Let’s end on a positive note from the great song writer Johnny Mercer: This one dedicated to the wonderful patriotic voters in Wisconsin for showing us the way:
“Gather ‘round me, everybody
Gather ‘round me while I’m preachin’
Feel a sermon comin’ on me
The topic will be sin and that’s what I’m ag’in’
If you wanna hear my story
Then settle back and just sit tight
While I start reviewin’
The attitude of doin’ right (Mercer meant ‘doin’ correct, not GOP Right)
You’ve got to accentuate the positive
Eliminate the negative
And latch on to the affirmative
Don’t mess with Mister in-Between
You’ve got to spread joy up to the maximum
Bring gloom down to the minimum
Have faith or pandemonium’s
Liable to walk upon the scene
To illustrate my last remark
Jonah in the whale, Noah in the ark
What did they do when everything looked so dark?
(Man, they said “We’d better accentuate the positive”)
(“Eliminate the negative”)
(“And latch on to the affirmative”)
Don’t mess with the GOP who’s so mean (No!)
Don’t mess with the GOP who’s so mean
GO WISCONSIN !!! You kick started the nation and showed We the People how we can save our democracy. VOTE DEMOCRATIC!
