“Don’t be a luddy-duddy! Don’t be a mooncalf! Don’t be a jabbernowl! You’re not those, are you?” -asked Egbert Souse’ (W.C. Fields) in The Bank Dick when he tried to get Og to pilfer $500 from the bank in order to invest in a questionable mining company.
There they go again, with the same kind of logic as Ebert Souse’ to convince people to quash Donald Trump’s picks for cabinet. I got another email again today, asking me to drink the Kool-aide:
|SIGN TODAY: Block Trump’s cabinet of Big Oil insiders, climate deniers, and corporate shills »|
“Jeff — Donald Trump is assembling a cabinet of greedy corporate shills like ExxonMobil CEO Rex Tillerson, climate denier Scott Pruitt, and anti-civil rights Senator Jeff Sessions. It’s no wonder people are calling it a #RiggedCabinet.
This cabinet is historic in its ties to Big Polluters and massive corporations as well as the amount of lasting damage they can do to our environment.
But each of Trump’s nominations needs to make it through a Senate confirmation hearing with at least 51 votes. The path to stopping them is narrow, tough, and demands perseverance, but it’s there. LCV and a broad coalition of progressive allies are joining a campaign to stop these dangerous picks from being confirmed. Will you join us?
Donald Trump paved his path to the White House by ignoring real problems like climate change and threatening his opponents and communities of color, and his cabinet nominations are no different:”
And the email goes on, in the vein of Ebert Souse’ (W.C. Fields).
Greedy corporate shills? Oh yea, and how about the Clinton Foundation’s greed, giving only ten percent of the donations to charity and pocketing 90 percent? https://www.commentarymagazine.com/politics-ideas/campaigns-elections/is-the-clinton-foundation-really-a-charity/
Here’s a WikiLeaks investigation:
- And how about President BO wanting a bigger pension when that horsefly finally leaves the White House?
- How about Solyndra, where BO pilfered $535 million from the taxpayers and gave it to his campaign contributors for a scheme as risky as the mining company Ebert Souse’ took from the bank to invest in. Golden parachutes for them; the shaft for us.
- How about PA Governor Big Bad Wolf banning drilling on state land, which would have helped the economy, provided jobs, and helped fill the tax coffers?
- How about all the expensive trips the Oh Bla Blas took at our expense?
This is just the tip of the iceberg!
Wouldn’t you call this greed? Unless, like former President Slick Willy Clinton, you struggle with what “is” is.
And I don’t deny climate. Yes, climate is a fact, but we can’t change it. As Professor Walter E Williams once said, the environmentalist wackos who champion a theory such as human caused global warming are so arrogant that they probably think that if they all jump up and down at the same time they can change the axis of the earth!
And how about something being rigged? Even in their own party, which the League of Conservation Voters evidently support, the Dems rigged the primary in favor of Shrillery! There is no honor among socialist-thieves!
These appeals to stop The Donald from filling his cabinet with level headed people who will serve us just make me laugh, just as does the Ebert Souse’/Og scene in The Bank Dick.
As Rush Limbaugh said, when liberals are in charge, they are dangerous. When they are not, they are just funny!
