Arizona Republicans Seek to Abolish the 17th Amendment, Maybe Censure John McCain (Again) w/Update

Thumbnail image for FeatheredBastard_RESIZE_VF.jpg

On Saturday, January 25, both the Republican and Democratic state parties have their mandatory meetings, where state committee members sometimes get to vote on meaningless and often downright wacky resolutions

Sand Land Republicans, of course, can out-wack their Democratic colleagues any day of the week, and they have the scary advantage of controlling state politics, for the most part.

They're like the crazy uncle you dare not turn your back on for fear he will reach for the scissors, where the Ds are like the crazy aunt who's safely padlocked in the attic, away from the sharp objects.

The Maricopa County Republican Party garnered headlines earlier this month for overwhelmingly passing a censure of U.S. Senator John McCain, basically because he's viewed by GOP moonhowlers as big ol' flip-floppin' RiNO (Republican in Name Only).

Though state Rs overall are somewhat less insane than the Maricopa County breed (which is the biggest litter of the lot), they also will be considering an anti-McCain resolution.

One Republican I know tells me this is meant to "send a message" to McCain, though I think the message McCain takes from it is that he doesn't have to pay any attention to the majority of local party activists, who dwell contentedly inside a bubble of hardened concrete.

Not that I'm a big fan of McCain, but McCain buried the Froot Loops' candidate of choice, erstwhile Congressman and radio lip-flapper J.D. Hayworth in the 2010 primary by 24 points.

Primaries, who pays attention to those? Why, one of the other resolutions up for a vote on Saturday supports ditching a Republican primary altogether and replacing it with a caucus, where wingnutty state committeemen who don't mind giving up their Saturdays can reign supreme.

Other resolutions voice support for Sheriff Joe Arpaio, Texas Senator Ted Cruz, and the 10th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution, which is all about state's rights, the only rights that seem to matter in certain Republican circles.

The battiest GOP resolution of them all is the one demanding the repeal of the 17th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution, which mandates the direct election of U.S. Senators.

State legislatures used to pick senators and some Rs from the Tea Party/John Birch Society wing of the Republican Party think axing the 17th amendment will return us to the paradise that was the 18th Century, in line with the dictates of the Framers.

You can always spot the angry folks with mental tool boxes emptied of any viable content! They resort to profanity, vulgarity, innuendo is about all they can do implying one is a liberal, democrat while feebly trying to elevate their egos with false claims of being something they are not or denying the thing they are so easy to see by majority of us that they are!

Democracy has been one of the longest and most enduring political ideologies around it will be around long after these social misfits, ne'r to do well racists, dummies on the far right wing fade into nothingness!;-)

The tea party is populated by neo-confederates, ne'r to do well assorted white supremacists who at best make a lot of noise, bother folks! Like flies they eat the unmentionable stuff, and of course bother folks! What have they accomplished since they elected 70+ in 2010 to federal positions? Nothing, driven down the US bond rating from AAA to AA, shut down the government costing billions, took hostage women, children, elderly, disabled vets and regular citizens, harmed economically citizens whose only crime was being employed by US government! Not a stellar record, and today -66 and declining, their sugar daddies the Koch brothers sent them a dear john letter via the NYT newspaper they have ridden them hard and put them up wet like a two bit harlot, been neutered by the GOP, they have no money, their leaders are scam artists conning donations of insignificant small amounts to fund their life styles as wanna-be leaders, the real money in the GOP is from big money, corporations, billionaires, multi-millionaires! The tea party is a fraud, our ancestors who were in the Boston Tea Party took a British ship hostage, threw some crates of tea into the sea, fought to form the very government these fake tea partiers want to destroy in some anarchist fantasy! At best the tea party of today are economic jihadist terrorists!

He has used the company, owned by his wife, as his personal pocketbook. Every time a person buys a Budweiser, bud lt, michelob etc, in the state of Arizona, Mccain gets a few cents in his pocket. They became number one by stealing all of the best workers from Miller, Coke, Pepsi, and Coors. Funny thing, the other companies wonder how they find all of the good workers!!LOL They let you train them, then steal them from you!! Mccain challenges you to stop him from being elected. Start drinking a different beer, start getting a different Senator. Pass it on!!

@vagabond545454 Hey dick-weed, if you would have attended school in the US you would have learned how to end a sentence with a period and start a new one with a capital letter.

Another ignorant, illegal, liberal loon.  

You are really too stupid to know how stupid you are, aren't you.

In America, we don't say things like "sand condescending".  Learn the language or go home.  Fucking leach.  Just what we need are more ignorant illegals.  How about we let in a few more PHDs?

@robert_grahamcracker @fishingblues Saying it doesn't make it so so, especially from an illegal lying fuck.


Did you use your welfare money to slip back across the border?


You are obviously a slime-ball parasite welfare queen.  Why don't you go home.  Your opinions do not count in this country.

@DonkeyHotay @robert_grahamcracker Don't you mean - misusing the noun and the verb? (not the verb and the noun)  You obviously don't know, do you?

What's more, you have no idea what "habitually" means.

You fit right in with these under-educated, illiterate, dumber than a stump, mostly illegal, limp-dick liberal loons.

@robert_grahamcracker   well cracker, where have you been?  So you consider trying to sneak back across the border 'vacation'?

I believe you have it backwards dick-weed.

YOU are the one who cannot spell.  

Instead of linking the fucking urban dictionary, why didn't you link the actual post?  The stupid fuck.

@robert_grahamcracker ... Fistingblues doesn't even know the difference between "beliefs" and "believes", habitually misusing the verb as the noun.

@timdlittle @fishingblues @DNichols Hey diddle, if you do not know the difference, please don't show your ignorance by brazenly posting it on these pages.

Libertarian? Like Rand Paul? A member of the right wing conservative party called the republican party? Your only Libertarian in your feeble, confused, mind as you wallow in your profanity laced mental illness!

@DNichols Don't belong.  They are a little too religious for my taste.  I'm a proud Libertarian.  But thanks for confirming what an ass-hole, bigoted, close-minded shit stain you are.

I can post logically, need no profanity, and my blood pressure is tested at a 20 year old level and I am in my 60's, hate to be you bubba, your not destined long for this earth with all that hate, venom destroying your arteries!;-)

@vagabond545454 @fishingblues "I can comment with intelligence..."  When are you going to start numbnuts?

In the short-bus school that you attended, (no doubt in Mexico), did they teach you that a sentence can go on forever?

Another retarded liberal too stupid to know he/she/it is stupid.

@fishingblues@vagabond545454


Profanity laced comments show your intelligence level!:-) Kool aid reference has long been a derogatory reference to democrats/liberals inferring suicide! It has never had a meaning of being drunk, that one is the reference often used to the right wing drinking snake oil, a old western concoction sold by traveling peddlers which was called snake oil which was syrup laced with alcohol, they sold it as a cure all for what ails you, at best got you a tingle or drunk if you drank enough! I can comment with intelligence, no need to get to your level of the genetic pool, your amusing at best!

@vagabond545454 @fishingblues   Another illiterate post with errors too many to illustrate.  You fucking moron.

Think kool aid doesn't make you drunk?  Ask the followers of Jim Jones.  That's right, you can't.  They are all dead from literally drinking the kool aid.  

Fuck me, liberals are stupid.

@vagabond545454 @fishingblues @robert_graham   All that profanity means nothing more than you are a brain-damaged, illiterate, dunderheaded fucking moron.

Where did you learn (or attempt to learn) English retard?  Another illegal with a stupid fucking opinion.

@vagabond545454 @robert_graham @fishingblues                               Point proven!          "... baby for a (sic) avatar" - from a zero with a blank for an avatar.

Here's the killer:   "You (sic) amusing at best."

Another stupid, uneducated, illiterate illegal.
