Song of the Sock Monkey

 Happy Monkeys

 Brain Candy

Pacifier of the People

"A great man once said, everything is about sex. Except sex. Sex is about power." - Francis Underwood - House of Cards television series.

It's that time again, folks.  Time for republicans in the House of Representatives to masturbate away while America struggles.  Yes, it's time to leverage the debt ceiling of the USA!  The first thing that came to mind when I heard that they were again hitching up the anti-Obamacare wagon to the dept ceiling was the definition for insanity (or stupidity - take your pick):  insanity is doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results.  It's tired and it's lame.  Give it up and work on something else, fcs!

Republicans need to stop trying to make Obama look bad.  No one cares if the president looks good or bad at this point, not even the president.  Even though it must be so much fun to spend all day dreaming up the latest way to derail a bill or dig up a scandal, citizens expect public servants to do some work.  It's time to get something done on creating jobs, immigration programs, health issues, security issues, environmental issues.  The sockmonkey games these guys are playing only reinforce their frat boy, non serious image.  They can prank each other all day long while we pay their salaries and provide them with healthcare.  Their no-can-do attitude will be remembered when it comes time to vote them out of office.

Today's Update (2/5/14 @ 1:40pm MST):  House GOP Adandons Debt Limit Fight.  There are some repubs still willing to fall on their sword over this issue, but most are realizing the debt limit is a lose-lose situation and have moved on.  Playtime is over.
