True revolutionaries do not flaunt their radicalism. They cut their hair, put on suits and infiltrate the system from within. – Saul Alinsky
“And that is the belief that in America, change is always possible. That our union may not be perfect, but it is perfectible."
Seriously? Big Guy didn’t really say that did he?
He did!? It sounds like something one of our summer interns might have pulled out of the “Rhetoric of Progressive Idealism” handbook.
I guess I can’t lay this one on an intern; Big Guy has been telling us pretty much the same thing ever since his 2008 “More Perfect Union” speech. Of course back then everyone thought it was, well, you know…rhetorical. Who knew that “transforming America” meant –transforming our Constitution into his own image and likeness?
With Czars and Executive Edicts and Administrative rules? I mean, whoever would’ve believed that was even possible – without so much as a peep out of anyone?
"That we can strive over time, through effort and sweat and blood and tears until it is the place we imagine. It may come in fits and starts, at a pace that can be slow and frustrating, but if we are willing to push through all the doubt and the cynicism and the weariness, then yes, we can form that more perfect union.”
Standby: I guess we’ll just have to wait and see what Big Guy and the Big Brains consider “a more perfect union” to be.
Maybe it will include “Meatless Mondays.” Because I see that the USDA just endorsed that campaign. Seriously?
The U.S. Department of Agriculture’s (USDA) recent announcement that the agency embraces the “Meatless Monday” concept calls into question USDA’s commitment to U.S. farmers and ranchers. USDA stated “one simple way to reduce our environmental impact while dining at our cafeteria is to participate in the “Meatless Monday” initiative.”
Don’t worry, they’ve already walked it back: saying it was “unauthorized.” (I’ll say! Monday is Kobe slider day around here.) Of course “unauthorized” is different from “not in support of” butt our official position is that the edict was issued by a “rogue animal rights activist.”
Maybe our “more perfect union” will include Big Guy’s new civilian police force, “just as strong just as powerful and just as well funded as the military.”
Butt Mayor Bloomberg didn’t really call for national anarchy in order to kick-start the program did he? He did!? Seriously?
"I would take it one step further. I don't understand why police officers across this country don't stand up, collectively, and say, 'We're going to go on strike. We're not going to protect you unless you, the public, through your legislature, do what's required to keep us safe."
Don’t worry, I guess he’s already walked that back. He didn’t really say what you thought he said, just because he said it.
Maybe our more perfect union will carve out more acceptance for non-traditional sexual orientations. No, not GLBTs: I’m talking Porn Stars. Because I see that Big Guy just gave a shout-out to Gay Porn King Terry Bean at his Portland fundraiser. Dude. Seriously?
“I want to thank somebody who put so much work into this event Terry Bean. Give Terry a big round of applause.” (Applause.)
Well, the guy is a “big bundler” and I think they may know each other from Man’s Country back in Chicago. Butt gosh, this does beg the question: is their anyone’s money we wouldn’t take? Aside from terrorists I mean? That is, assuming you can prove they’re terrorists. Well, unless you can prove they’re terrorists butt they’re not world leaders. In that case we’ll roll out the red carpet and fire up our hookah.
So lets just stick with pervs for now: Wow - Terry! Successful businessman and owner of the world famous gay porn movie production companies Falcon Studios, Jock Studios, and Mustang Studios! He’s like a gay porn tycoon! Butt hey Terry, did you know that you didn’t get there on your own? That you didn’t build that? That somebody else made that happen? That we succeed because we do things together? In regard to that last point, I suppose Mr. Gay Porn King Terry Bean would have to agree. Unclear on the other ones though.
Anyway, still awaiting the walk-back on this shout-out. Standby, I give it no more than 24 hours before old Terry is sent “packin.”
