The Elephants Who Hear Nothing are about the business of bullshit yet again. They prove yet again that they pay no attention to the facts nor to the world around them, but are insistent that they can impinge their fantasies on reality by mere dint of will power and repetition.
ADEL, Iowa–Paul Ryan weighed in Wednesday on the Democrats’ 2012 platform, which makes no reference to “God,” calling the omission “rather peculiar.”
“It’s not in keeping with our founding documents, our founding vision, but I guess you would have to ask the Obama administration why they purged all this language from their platform,” Ryan said on Fox News.
The word God is not mentioned in the U.S. Constitution. The word “Nature’s God” appears once in the Declaration of Independence, alongside mention of the word “Creator.”
The new platform refers to faith, saying it “has always been a central part of the American story.” It also says the US was founded on the principle of religious freedom and the ability of people to worship as they please. It praises the work of faith-based organizations.
As if it’s not enough that some idiotic afterbirth of the Republicans (the ‘Tea Party’) even exists, we have one of these assclowns actually running for VP, and adding insult to injury, he has to regurgitate the party line about ‘the founders’ and America being in debt to some non-existent superstition.
Regardless if Mitt wins or not (and it doesn’t look good for Mr. Underwear), somebody somewhere has to get on the boob tube, and start actually taking these ignoramuses to school. I may sound like a broken record here, but no opinion is worth shit unless it’s backed up by something we in the real world call evidence.
I sincerely wish we could abolish the Republican party – it’s done nothing but damage this country since the Demos and the Repubs switched faces at the start of the 20th century.
We’re better off without them. Any of them.
Till the next post, then.
