Daily Jackasses new and old

-- John Aravosis of AMERICAblog is today's Burro Pendejo, in what is becoming a spirited contest of "Can You Top This?".  He's got a running feud with Sputnik News going over his outlandish 'Russian sympathizer' accusations, which he's stoking in his own comments (deleting most of the ones he disagrees with, leaving his customized juvenile insults in response).

It appears that I’m the subject of a blistering article in the Russian state propaganda organ, Sputnik, over my recent criticism of Green party presidential candidate Jill Stein’s visit to Moscow last winter.

Let's just hope he's not the object of a Russian spy with a poison pen, a la James Bond.

Red-scaring is the most popular of the latest tactics of fever-dream Clinton Dems.  They're madly conflating Trump and Stein in a mashup of distractions from the disastrous Wikileaked DNC emails, which have detailed an unprecedented depth of corruption within the party's politburo, resulting in the firings of several top party operatives, the suspicious death of one staffer and even the Republicans' own harebrained concoctions of the assassination of an Iranian nuclear scientist by that country's government.

Joe McCarthy would be so proud.

Update: Mint Press News with the most thorough dismantling of this latest smear attempt.

I honestly cannot understand what drives these rants beyond a seething hostility of the left that is mostly contained within the ranks of those still involved -- or deeply self-identifying -- as Democratic apparatchiks.  In effect, we now have three conservative political parties in the United States, and that's not counting the Constitutions.  This unrequited rage goes way past a 16-year misplaced grudge against Ralph Nader, and has even swept up once-rational Texas state representatives in its contagion.

I'm going to quit trying to explain it any further because it doesn't make any sense.  I'm just going to document their atrocities and crown the king jacks and queen jennets when I discover the vilest of their tirades online.

-- Original DJ Chris Hooks got busy getting paid over the weekend with pieces in the Observerer again and in Politico.  He was calmer, but still somewhat unbalanced, with "kooks" replacing "cranks" and "dead-enders" and his animosity substituted for the most part with snarling contempt and reeking condescension.

This qualifies as progress.

Hooks even managed to rile the normally placid Kuffner with his sneering about the HD-146 special election.  Hooks is not going to be invited to anybody's house for beers and lawn darts at the rate he's expelling these noxious, prosaic gases.

Many more Jackasses on deck!  Competition is stiff!

Only a person who had not held a position of authority has not committed atrocities. Since I have never been elected, not that I have not tried I have not committed any atrocities. Do I hold some beliefs that would not be acceptable to some people, for dang sure.

Jill Stein may be a capable person, but like me, she has never convinced a sufficient number of people of how great we are. While I believe the more the merrier, this presidential year is unique. It may be possible to drive a stake into the heart of the Republican monster that has been created by Donald Trump.

"Only a person who had not held a position of authority has not committed atrocities"

False. Rapists, murderers, torturers, abusers of women, children, and even animals qualify, and scant few as a percentage of the total population meet the definition of holding 'a position of authority'. If you had typed 'dominance', you might have come closer to the truth. Even then, a solid case could be prepared against this contention: that many of those who committed an atrocity could be found as having no position of authority or dominance, just a perversion of the mind.

"It may be possible to drive a stake into the heart of the Republican monster that has been created by Donald Trump."

If you live in one of the increasingly few battleground states. Otherwise, any vote for Hillary Clinton in Texas is going to have absolutely nothing with her Electoral College victory.

Absolutely. Nothing.

PDiddie you know what I meant, we were talking about politicians and how they have voted. But even some of those crimes that you mention if someone has paid their debt to society it is still should be punished.

Does that mean that you believe that felons who have paid their debt to society should not be allowed to vote? Or run for a seat?

Texas may be coming into play, so your if you live in one of those states, may mean if you live in Texas.

In two years the Green party may not even meet the standards to be on the ballot in Texas. When Nadar ran and cause the election to go to Bush, I had an agreement to vote one way if the person from Florida voted a certain way. We would still be casting our vote for the person we wanted.

Texas is NOT coming into play.

The Texas Green Party may indeed lose their ballot access for 2018 in 2016.

I too was a "Nader trader" in 2000 -- with a gentleman in Florida, no less.

We will see, by the end of September.

I honestly believe that there will be an opportunity to elect non-Republican judges this November that have not existed since Ann Richards.

But we only have to wait about 45 more days to see if that is true. If the Texas Democrats that give to Clinton can see that some of the down ballot people get some money it may be possible to get sufficient state reps to block some Republican proposals.

Trump will be an albatross around the Republicans neck for at least two years if not more.
