Rush Limbaugh promised to move to Costa Rica if Barack Obama were re-elected in 2012. He is still here
Michele Bachmann promised to leave Minnesota if the state of Minnesota approved gay marriage, They did and she is still a Minnesota Congressperson. If she does keep her promise, I hope that she will go north, rather than east, south or west.

There is nonsense everywhere
There is nonsense in the air
There is nonsense on TV
There is nonsense on radio
There is nonsense in print
There is nonsense on the ‘net
There is nonsense everywhere.
There is nonsense on FOX, of course
There is nonsense on Sunday mornings
There is nonsense in Washington, DC
There is nonsense for all to see
There is nonsense that hurts you and me
Who is responsible for the nonsense?
There is nonsense in the media
There is nonsense all around
There is nonsense on the ground
There is nonsense here
There is nonsense there
There is nonsense everywhere
There is nonsense 24/7
There is nonsense while we sleep
There is nonsense while we wake
There is nonsense when we’re born
There is nonsense when we die
And every moment in between.
The media shirk their duty
Mistaking equal time for balance
If nonsense is given equal time
With facts and truth
Who will determine
Where the border lies
Between fact and fantasy?

In the weeks and months ahead, please remember that it is the GOP goal to abolish both the Obama presidency and the IRS.

Issa is a Republican
His reputation white as snow
And everything that Darrell says
The media swallow whole.
The Obama administration
Is Darrell Issa‘s target
Investigation after investigation
Hearings and news conferences
Are his preferred M. O.
Truth lies dead upon the floor
The media do not care
They do not keep score of that
All that really matters are ratings.
Controversy draws larger audiences
Suckers born every minute
Facts don’t matter, opinion rules the day
Issa is a draw, a ratings plus
That is all that matters
In a democracy in decline.

I received an email moments ago from a right-wing source calling the present economy the Obama Great Depression or the Great Depression 2. If you recall your history, the first Great Depression is forever associated with Herbert Hoover who was in office when it began in 1929. It did not become FDR’s Great Depression in 1933 because FDR tried to work the US back into prosperity despite opposition from the GOP and the US Supreme Court. What we currently label the Great Recession and some in the GOP want to relabel as the Obama Great Depression began in 2008 under George W. Bush. Obama has been trying to turn the economy around and has had limited success, success limited by the constant GOP obstructionism.
