The Party of Lincoln no more Republicans call for Secession

700,000 Americans have signed on-line "Secession" petitions. Numerous right-wing blogs are projecting their dark murder fantasies in comment pages everywhere.

They've been so snugly ensconced in their Alternate Conservative Reality that when it is crushed by the American People the reaction is fury and violence.

The night of Barack Obama's decisive victory students from the University of Mississippi took to the streets blocking streets, throwing rocks, hitting cars, shouting racist slurs and burning Obama campaign signs until the police broke up the riot.

Over at Vox Popoli the sad loss of unearned White Entitlement struck Vox particularly hard, 
But it appears the symbolism of white Americans being deprived of their choice of president by an alliance of aliens... 
This is just what immigrants do if they are allowed to invade in sufficient numbers. 
Unearned White Entitlement and Privilege are a deep foundational aspect of conservative thinking. 

But, before any conservative drone attempts to claim that a bigoted Right-Wing blogger doesn't represent Manistream Conservative thought Presidential and Vice Presidential losers Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan took to the "Liberal" Media to complain that "gifts" to the "Urban voters" caused them to lose.
"In some parts of rural Maine, there were dozens, dozens of black people who came in and voted on Election Day."
Blacks! Voting! Fraud!!! The dreaded other is stealing the country out from under the Real Americans! You have no choice but to rise up and...

Sean Hannity the Voice of Conservatism airs the bigoted voice of Texas Secessionist Daniel Miller on his Faux News program to complain that the "Union has fundamentally changed" and for people like Miller and Hannity doesn't represent the principles "envisioned" by the Founders. Which must mean the racist pro-slavery ideas and absorbtion of Texas' Debt by the United States.

But, not to be overshadowed by their Republican Guard Dogs and Faux News sycophants the Rich Successionists began throwing petulant tantrums over President Obama's re-election.
"If I leave the prices the same, but say on the menu that there is a 5 percent surcharge for Obamacare, customers have two choices. They can either pay it and tip 15 or 20 percent, or if they really feel so inclined, they can reduce the amount of tip they give to the server, who is the primary beneficiary of Obamacare," John Metz told The Huffington Post. "Although it may sound terrible that I'm doing this, it's the only alternative. I've got to pass the cost on to the consumer."
John Metz is the franchisor of Hurricane Grill and Wings, which has 48 locations, five of which are corporate owned, and president and owner of RREMC Restaurants, which runs approximately 40 Denny's and several Dairy Queen locations. He planned to use the 5 percent surcharge tactic in all his restaurants starting in January 2014, when Obamacare is fully implemented.
There it is. The Rich can never have enough. The Rich are never satiated. The Rich will never pay their fair share. Instead the want the burden borne by the backs of the Middle Class. This is what Republicans mean when they always talk of "broadening the base". They mean to pass on all the costs of government onto the Middle Class until their backs are broken and Corporate Serfdom and Wage Slavery rule the land.
Papa John's CEO John Schnatter is in a massive snit about how much he is put upon by having to help provide healthcare coverage via Obamacare for his employees. He doesn't support his employees getting better quality healthcare coverage because it's bad for his profit margins. So, he's decided to add 14 cents to the price of his pizzas in order to pass the cost onto consumers. I throughly applaud this decision.

Price yourself out of the market and then pack it in and set off to your Randian Paradise. Have fun tending and harvesting the wheat for your crust, raising and slaughtering pigs for the pepperoni and growing the tomatoes for your sauce so you can make your soggy cardboard pizza in the wilderness. I'm not sure how you'll get the High Fructose Corn Syrup to make your sauce palatable though...
Go Galt already! You provide nothing spectacular to the American Experience. I guarantee some enterprising young American, such as Wisconsin based Ian's Pizza will fill the market with a better quality product 

Just go. Get out of my country. It's not yours any more. The Era of unearned privilege is over.

I there is one thing I am certain of, fast food and shit-for-food restaurants have done irreparable harm to America's health, if not the world at large. All the above fall into this category. I don't eat their crap anyway, but I wish I did so that I could boycott the whiny bastards.

The growth of the Fast Food industry is tied durectly to the stagnation of real wages and the necessity of needing two salaries from working class people.

Corporations fuck us over everywhich way and being Undead Monsters the entire Zombie horror movie industry is a comment on the way Corporations destroy and consume us.

Donato's (owned by the golden archees) out of Colummbus, Ohio makes a great pizza!

One Fly said...

There ya go again being too damn nice.

The food in this country for the most part is really shitty.

Merca loves the shitty. Shitty politics and politicians. Shitty TV and on and on.

Grung_e_Gene said...

Thanks Sarge if I'm ever in Ohio I'll look it up. Being in Chicago it is insulting anyone would call Crappa John's "pizza".

One Fly

Hmmm. Let's work out the casual connection; exploding increase in heart disease, diabetes and obesity because of shit food, exploding medical care costs because of shit health.

Alan Grayson was 100% correct when he said Republicans have a 2-part health plan for Americans. 1) Don't get sick and 2) if you do Die Quickly..

Now, the conservative drones are planning a Crappa John's appreciation day to show how much they love their Rich Masters.

Your argument emphasizes something I have always believed: the worst event in the history of the country was when the North won the Civil War. We should have let them go, and today we'd be a progressive, strong decent country whose greatest problem would be the multi-thousand mile long border we shared with a third world hellhole. I'd love to see how much Southerners would be screaming about illegal immigration when it was them trying to climb over the fence to have a chance at a decent life.

Gene, do you live in the city? I don't even know where there is a Papa Johns around me. If it wasn't for Super Bowl commercials, I don't think I'd ever hear of this place.

I NEVER eat fast food. Walmart sucks too,I won't shop there. As far as the South, they need to have their own country, for old white men, where they can legitimately rape, get the government out of their lives so they can retire to a cardboard box and get sick and die in the street since they don't need no damn Obamacare either. Good riddance to bad rubbish!

Silverfiddle said...

It's OK, if the other petition wins over, the secessionists will all be deported!

As for the rest of it, life sure is messy when people are allowed to make their own decision with their own money...
