Category: Fun and Humor
Read the title of my post as a spoof on the whole Ghostbusters song – the good one from back then, not the idiotic PC reboot that Hollywood douched us with last year – because it is appropriate. The other day another old democrat crone was asked for an explanation of why the country accumulated $9 trillion plus dollars in debt with absolutely nothing to show for it (a lot of vote buying there and Hillary still lost), and Pelosi, in her grandeur, blamed Boosh. I am starting to think Boosh might be some kind of inhumane super fiend, because the guy can do everything impossible.
Let’s all sign it, baby: If the left is called out on something bad, who ya gonna blame? “George BOOSH”! Catchy…
Here we go:
House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi blamed former President George W. Bush and the Republicans on Friday for the more than $9 trillion that has been added to the national debt under President Obama’s watch.
Pelosi argued that under Obama, the annual budget deficit, which contributes to the national debt, has been reduced dramatically, and said that without Obama’s work, the national debt would be even higher. She also mostly blamed Bush for not paying for the wars in Afghanistan and Iraq.
That same old tired trope again. Obama was great for the economy! Boosh’s Wars! This crap has to be because Pelosi knows for a fact that it was Boosh that bombed the twin towers. She must also think (or want everyone to believe) that it was Boosh whom unilaterally decided to invade Iraq. Thusly, poor godsend Obama struggled to end those evil wars, by losing them, and only managed to start conflicts all over the place – because of Boosh’s mind control, according to Pelosi (or was that all because of the evil Noble Peace Prize whispering in his ear?) – destabilizing the ME and the world in the process, had to spend all that money. It could never be that congress, mostly when it was totally controlled by democrats, felt obligated – probably because of Boosh’s evil super powers, again – to spend trillions more than the broken economy the democrats left us with after their social justice home-loan lending schemes imploded, so they could engage in buying votes, enriching special interests, and fattening donkey campaign coffers.
“When President Obama stood on the steps on the Capitol eight years from next week, the [budget] deficit was $1.4 trillion — one year deficit,” she said. “It’s reduced by 70 percent in his administration. Much of the increase in the national debt that has occurred from this time still springs from two unpaid-for wars, cost that we owe our veterans following that, giveaways that they gave to the pharmaceutical industry, and the high-end tax cuts that have carried forward without any job production. Absent the work of President Obama, this national debt would be even higher.”
Pelosi has some gall. Let me point out that $1.4 trillion dollar deficit was done by the congress she ran after the 2006 election, which remind everyone overrode evil Boosh to spend that money. Those of us that understand who decides how tax payer money gets spent, and who can sign for it or veto it, that is, if they can avoid that congressional override. Based on her own words, we are left basically connecting her accusations of that money being given to fat cats, with her. But somehow it still is Boosh’s fault they did that. Then you got this:
Pelosi noted the work done by former President Bill Clinton to balance the budget or leave a surplus.
You mean the work done by Newt Gingrich, thrice before it stuck? Gingrich dragged the smarter Clinton kicking and screaming away from the leftward turn his people and that crime syndicate capo he married for political convenience had been driving us for the first 2 years of his administration, and dismantled a lot of the horribly costly and wasteful welfare state. I wonder how that expensive welfare state fared under Obama, and if that coupled with the depressing and miserable Obama economy might have more to do with?
And then we have the other shoe about to drop: Obamacare. A monster that is poised to bankrupt America, if it is not slain soon. I bet Pelosi would like us to believe that was also Boosh’s fault even though not a single republican voted for this monstrosity and Boosh was on his ranch in Texas clearing brush. This is the Obama legacy, but the tools want you to believe someone else is responsible for 8 years of amateur hour.
Lets all sing it now: If you are a democrat, and you get called out on being crooks, who ya gonna blame? “George BOOSH”! If someone points out, you fucked America over good, who ya gonna blame? “George BOOSH”!
Catchy indeed. That Boosh guy is the most powerful villain in human history I tell you..
So, a bunch of people have their boxers in a bunch about this sketch from the BBC comedy show Revolting:
A lot of people are jumping up and down claiming this is either offensive to Muslims or trivializes the rape and oppression that the real “wives” of ISIS are enduring. Now, I have a high offense threshold and have a taste for provocative humor, so take that into account. But I actually don’t see what the big deal is. The skit is kind of funny and, to me, seems to me a much more vicious satire of reality TV than of ISIS. And, to judge by the online commentary, a lot of Muslims are fine with it since they hate ISIS as much as anyone.
As for trivializing the rape of ISIS wives … look, one of the best things to do to evil men is mock them. It drives them absolutely crazy when you makes jokes about what they consider to me the most important thing in the world. That’s why they were so furious at Charlie Hebdo because the one thing a fanatic can’t stand is not being taken seriously. Mel Brooks, a Jewish veteran of WW2, has devoted decades to mocking Hitler at every turn.
So, please … more of this. More mockery, more jokes, more caricatures.
They year hasn’t ended until Dave Barry posts his Year in Review. And you know this one’s going to be a humdinger:
Let’s begin with the gruesome train wreck that was the presidential election. The campaign began with roughly 14,000 candidates running. Obviously not all of them were qualified to be president; some of them — here we are thinking of “Lincoln Chafee” — were probably imaginary. But a reasonable number of the candidates seemed to meet at least the minimum standard that Americans have come to expect of their president in recent decades, namely: Not Completely Horrible.
So this mass of candidates began the grim death march that is the modern American presidential campaign — trudging around Iowa pretending to care about agriculture, performing in an endless series of televised debates like suit-wearing seals trained to bark out talking points, going to barbecue after barbecue and smiling relentlessly through mouthfuls of dripping meat, giving the same speech over and over and over, shaking millions of hands, posing for billions of selfies and just generally humiliating themselves in the marathon group grovel that America insists on putting its presidential candidates through.
After all that, the American people, looking for a leader, ended up with a choice between ointment and suppository. The fall campaign was an unending national nightmare, broadcast relentlessly on cable TV. CNN told us over and over that Donald Trump was a colossally ignorant, narcissistic, out-of-control sex-predator buffoon; Fox News countered that Hillary Clinton was a greedy, corrupt, coldly calculating liar of massive ambition and minimal accomplishment. And in our hearts we knew the awful truth: They were both right.
It wasn’t just bad. It was the Worst. Election. Ever.
This is the one thing right before New Year’s I always look forward to. And Barry doesn’t disappoint.
OK, I just fell off the comity cliff.
Here’s the deal, mocking snowflakes and their safe spaces is good wholesome fun, cathartic, balance rendering, perspective lending, and provides levity in an uncertain world, but the absolutely scary part is that there are people like that out there, pity them, sure, but they do exist. Chicken Littles every one, where hyper-ventilating is the new normal, where everything is a catastrophe, and nothing left to do but sit in their own puddle of tears with their blankey. Exhibit A:
Trump’s election stole my desire to look for a partner
But two weeks later, the election happened. Once it was clear that Donald Trump would be president instead of Hillary Clinton, I felt sick to my stomach. I wanted to gather my children in bed with me and cling to them like we would if thunder and lightning were raging outside, with winds high enough that they power might go out. The world felt that precarious to me.
When I told her Trump had won, she protested: “But Mom. You said Hillary was going to win.”
“A lot of people thought the same thing,” I said. I hugged her, a little scared to send her to school, out into the big sky country of the red state where we live.
It would be too easy to attribute this twaddle to the over hyped imagination of a fake news writer and a fake newspaper (The Washington Post would most certainly qualify) but this is real, real for a woman suffering from a mental disorder.
Read the comment section of the article, my post basically writes itself, my favorite comment;
Could you just move to California already you are clearly a pansy in need of a safe space. Montana is not the state for you.
Here is something else that caught my eye;
That urge to cling to my family while keeping our foundation strong didn’t mesh well with continuing to date the man I’d been seeing. He also has a daughter. He, too, had been feeling a lot of the same emotions I was experiencing: hopelessness; fear; uncertainty about the future; panic over having to talk to my 9-year-old about anything that might come up at school, or what to do in the instance of sexual assault. But I couldn’t reach out to him anymore. He was too new, too unfamiliar.
Is this woman really insinuating that with a Trump win comes the likelihood that her 9 year old daughter will now get sexually assaulted?
Some might feel that idiots deserve pity, I say they deserve derision. For a 5 year old, life is more pleasant when never hearing the word “NO”, but aside from creating a monster, who the hell wants to share air with them?
After reading those comments, I suspect this author is now in her bunny rabbit PJ’s, on her comfy couch, with a gallon of mint chip ice cream, watching Real Time, hoping that she will wake up from this bad dream.
Yes, it’s been a long time, hasn’t it? But here we are, at the end of all things as far as Right Thinking from the Left Coast is concerned…at least in its current iteration. I simply can’t let it go without one last respectful music thread.
This site has not only brought me tremendous enjoyment through reading and debating, but also numerous friendships. For those of you who don’t already stay in touch with me on social media, I do hope you’ll come around eventually.
More than that, I can’t say. For two reasons: 1. I’m not very sentimental and 2. I don’t have the sense that it’s really all over. We simply enjoy
conversing in good-natured fellowship hating and haranguing the shit out of each other too much. We’ll see what comes next.
Moving on, growing up, and change are all a part of life. It’s really up to you if you want to commemorate the end or the possibility of a new beginning. Sure, all things must come to an end but even in death there can be rebirth. We can have some songs about that. This doesn’t have to be a tear-jerker thread!
Also, please feel free to post music from those many artists we lost in the last year.
God bless you all and thank you for reading, debating, and even influencing me over the years. You fuckers.

I sincerely hope I didn’t forget anyone in my legendary carelessness, though I’m sure I totally did. Hit me up with a “hey, dickhead” in the comments and you’ll be rightfully included. Unless I disagree with the “rightful” part.
Best thing is the bitchslap given to the media. they destroyed any credibility and semblance of objectivity to drag the criminal across the finish line and failed. May they all suffer in perpetuity for their brazen partisanship bullshit.
For some reason, this morning’s hoo-hah over Gary Johnson reminded me of a Polish joke from the Cold War. I will adopt it to the present circumstance:
Hillary Clinton is on a game show where you have to answer four questions to win a cash prize. She sits down with the host.
Host: So, Mrs. Clinton, are you ready for you first question?
Clinton: I’ve been ready since 1991, when I …
Host: OK, so … for your first question … what is Iraq?
Clinton: Iraq is a country that I voted to invade in 2003.
Host: That is correct! Now, for your second question … what is Libya?
Clinton: Libya is a country I decided to bomb in 2011.
Host: That is correct! Now, for your third question … what is Syria?
Clinton: Syria is a country I supported bombing in 2014.
Host: That is correct! Now, for your last question … and all the money … what is Aleppo?
Clinton squirms for a while, fiddles with her blackberry, stares off into space, bites her lip. She concentrates very hard. Finally, she clears her throat.
Clinton: Well, I’m not completely sure, but I’ll take a shot at it.
Host: THAT IS CORRECT!
Say what you want, but I have constantly had arguments with morons, practically always leftists twits, about why the educational establishment has had to dumb down and politicize education – meaning turning everything that now passes for teaching into a pro-marxism lesson – because according to them, kids today have trouble associating what little they still teach them with their life experiences, and thus cant relate. Queue a teacher that decided to make it real. From the article:
This teacher gets a D- in racial sensitivity and an F in common sense.
A teacher at an Alabama middle school has been placed on administrative leave after it was discovered she distributed a questionable math quiz last Friday to her students that referenced gang-related activities like drive-by shootings, cocaine and prostitution.
According to parents of kids at Cranford Burns Middle School in Mobile, the students were shocked after reading questions like these:
“Tyrone knocked up 4 girls in the gang. There are 20 girls in his gang. What is the exact percentage of girls Tyrone knocked up?”
“Pedro got 6 years for murder. He also got $10,000 for the hit. If his common-law wife spends $100 of his hit money per month, how much money will be left when he gets out?”
Dwayne pimps 3 ho’s. If the price is $85 per trick, how many tricks per day must each ho turn to support Dwayne’s $800 per day crack habit?
Parent Erica Hall told NBC affiliate WPMI that she was outraged to find out that longtime Language Arts teacher JoAnne Bolser would hand such inappropriate content out to her son’s eighth grade class.
Say what you want, but I bet if these morons want to keep using the argument that education problems should reflect real life problems, then this teacher was doing them a favor. About the only question I found problematic was the one about Dwayne, and that is because it doesn’t factor in the cost of the ho’s crack habit Dwayne as a good pimp is sure to pay for. Know what I am saying?
It’s cool this shit comes out of Hollywood I guess, but when we do it in school, on advice from people that tell us we should be doing this sort of thing since real life examples help kids learn better, we get drama. And why was there no questions about busting caps in someone’s ass in that test, huh?
BOATS and HOS!
Talk about getting more than you paid for:
MAY 3–A woman last week contacted Florida cops to report that she believed a pair of chicken sandwiches purchased at KFC “contained semen,” according to a police report.
The unidentified customer went to the Manatee County Sheriff’s Office and told officials there that she bought the sandwiches from a Bradenton restaurant.
This reminds me of the girl in my junior year biology class that asked the teacher if cum had a high concentration of sugar (fructose) why it tasted salty, then realized she had just admitted to being a fun date. That or maybe this chick was just looking for a pay day.
I never worked in fast food, although I did a brief stint in a restaurant my parents owned, but I have plenty of friends that have told me stories that make it very clear that you avoid this stuff unless you can watch them make it. Sully was not available for comment…
