This weekend, hours before voters have their say in the GOP Super Tuesday primaries, Senator Marco Rubio took to the stump, waging all out War! on The Donald. There was the usual “He’s a liar…a con man…a liar…a con man…a liar…and you know what they say about a man with small hands, doncha?”
Pausing to take a drink of water and wait for the appreciative laughter, he finished: “It means he can’t be trusted!”
Yeah, yeah, yeah. I’m a married woman of a certain age and that’s what I’ve always thought that joke meant, too. Didn’t you? Get your minds out of the gutter! Jeeze.
Jokes about Donald Trump’s hair and hands, whispers about his taxes, ties to the KKK, mafia and who knows what all, won’t work. Why? Because no one else is Donald J. Trump — and that’s all there is to it. It’s precisely because these busted canards are the old tried and true KO’s they’ve been in elections past that render them impotent.
Trump is not them, they are not Trump. For all the highly-compensated campaign consultants the RNC, the established GOP, the Big Money oppo, and the other candidates cannot get a toehold. This is one of the “…because sometimes you won’t”, warned by Dr. Seuss in “Oh, The Places You’ll Go.” One of the places Rubio won’t be going is the winner’s circle on Super Tuesday. And except for an expected win — though who knows how many delegates out of his home state of Texas — Senator Cruz will be joining his junior senator collaborator outside that circle. Now, what were you saying about the size of his hands?
How is Trump, Trump? Hint: You’ll have to think way outside the box.

I guess Mittens liked it so much when Harry Reid made up crap about Mittens’ taxes that Mittens thought it a good idea to make up crap about Donald Trump’s taxes. Brilliant!
GOP establishment goons keep launching dumbass attacks against Trump despite the fact that these attacks have history of backfiring and only make Donald Trump more popular among those of us who are fed up with the GOPe and their insipid shenanigans. Keep it up, snobs!
In November of 2012, after the gutless weenies of the Republican party handed Obama four more years to wreck up our country, I had this to say:
It wasn’t just the left and their enemedia puppets who did this to us though, they had plenty of help from the spineless jellyfish of the establishment GOP who perpetually refuse to stand up for the people who put them in their jobs just as they neglect to do the job of representing the values of the people that they were hired to represent. They have rolled over for the left and let Obama run roughshod on this country again and again and again, afraid to stand up against tyranny for fear of being called names that they got called anyway.
The establishment GOP has done everything it could to marginalize effective Conservative voices in the Republican Party and they continually betray their oaths of office while ceding ground even when they had the advantage. Immediately after the big Conservative victories of 2010, the Republican Party appeared to have forgotten that they’d won and returned to acting like scolded dogs with tails placed firmly betwixt their legs.
Led by mewling surrender monkey, Cryin’ John Boehner, the establishment GOP has declined to fight for conservatives at every opportunity and now they deserve the full force of our wrath.
I suggest that we burn the establishment GOP down to the ground (and dance on the ashes), via primary elections, and that we immediately get to work at finding suitable brave, and competent, people to challenge these braying jackasses in every Republican primary at every level of government every chance we get from now on.
The republicans have not stopped being spineless crapweasels, four years later, and worse, they are openly hostile to the GOP’s current frontrunner, Donald Trump. TV talking heads say Trump will burn down the Republican Party. I say, GOOD, maybe I can send him some gasoline (not that he needs it).
BURN THAT MUTHA DOWN! Happily dance on the ashes of the party of pansies who chronically betray us all every chance they get. Fuckum.
Pro Tip: Publicly criticizing your boss & bitching about your entry level job is not likely to get you a promotion.
The story: College graduate (majored in English Literature) aspires to be a big media professional, moves to a city with a very high cost of living & takes an entry level minimum wage job only to become frustrated that she doesn’t have enough money to fund the lifestyle she’d like to have so she writes an open letter to her boss about how she deserves better (or something) and is then fired shortly thereafter.
In the comments section of the open letter blog post, a reader explains why publicly complaining about your job wasn’t such a great idea:
Probably not a good idea to publicly slam the company that pays your bills and the CEO that signs the checks, as proven by your update.
If you wonder why 18 year olds that live with their parents are doing the same job as you, it is because it is an entry level position with minimum wage pay that does not require a college degree.
Calling out the CEO because of his net worth is just stupid. The guy co-founded the company. He built it from nothing to what it is worth today. Of course he is going to be worth hundreds of millions if he is running a very successful company.
I am also not sure how much you think writing funny tweets will pay. If you went and got a college degree to write some funny tweets, you could have probably skipped the whole college part!
Some advice for you, take it or leave it but it is to your benefit:
Don’t bite the hand that feeds you.
Don’t expect easy jobs that pay more than a teachers salary.
Don’t complain about a situation you put yourself in. Yes, moving to one of the most expensive areas for a minimum wage job was your decision.
And last but not least, make yourself worth something, don’t just ask for a handout.
This may come of as though I don’t sympathize with your situation at all and that is because I don’t. While I think that minimum wage should be higher, that is not what your post was about.
I just noticed that you had full health coverage without paying anything. I am not sure if you know what that is worth, it is about $600/month. I would be publicly thanking the company for that, not slamming them, most don’t provide any coverage for such positions, let alone pay the full amount.
The commenter is then berated by other readers for his “mansplaining” to the now unemployed young lady. Cuz common sense is like totes sexist dontcha know? Yikes.
Something happened to this blog. I tried to fix it, made it worse, gave myself a headache, and then had to accept the fact that the only option available to me to get MareZilla.com running again was to have the database wiped and start all over again. So, everything I had here since I moved from Blogger a few years ago is gone. If I had a backup somewhere, I don’t recall where it is or how to use it, so I console myself with the knowledge that my blogging wasn’t all that good the past couple of years anyway and at least I still have the old archives at the old place where some of my best work exists.
I only just got this back up & running, so the place is still pretty bare, but I’ll spiff it up when I can. Thank you for your patience.
