Look, John Boehner - Who You Jivin' With That Cosmic Debris

I know it's a little early, but don't they have Christmas in July? Dedicated to the failure that is John Boehner.

Just pass a clean debt ceiling bill already? Just do it.

For My Sister Who Passed Away this Morning

She Hated corporate bullshit. Loved me like a son (she was 22 years older than me) and had a massive coronary. She loved music, everything from the Grateful Dead to the Beatles and Elvis. She loved Elvis. She would have loved these songs but I could never get her to accept (I build 'em) a damn computer so I could send music to her.

I love you Alice, and I will miss you so much it's hard to even think about it. The Greendayman family has had it's share of grief this year. But, no whining.

Here's some John Prine for my sister.

Hey America, It's Time To Be A Dick

Whiny Ass Titty Baby Eric Cantor can't take the heat, whines about the "angry black man", and can't handle being questioned on his bullshit. None of those mealy mouthed republican assholes can stand it if someone stands up to them just like any school playground bully will wilt if confronted. Congrats to our President for showing some brass.

So, America - it's time to stand up to these republican assclowns on the economy and be a dick. I know it goes against our liberal nature but why should they get their corporate agenda passed at the expense of the American People?

Here is the real deal from the President himself (sort-of) from Funny Or Die:

The New War of Independence -- Against Corporate Politics

Via HuffPo

"This is the age of corporatized politics. That means we may admire our leaders, but we can't depend on them. We're paying the price for Thomas Jefferson's unfulfilled desire to "crush in its birth the aristocracy of our monied corporations which dare already to challenge our government to a trial by strength, and bid defiance to the laws of our country."

"That's why we celebrate July 4, not September 3, as our Day of Independence."

"That will disappoint the history-challenged right-wingers whose patriotic posturing is limited to speaking in their odd pseudo-military lingo, that echolalic Esperanto for fantasy revolutionaries. They don't realize that war is a tactic, not a system of values. And "independence"? Today's "Tea Party" wasn't named for the tea-dumping patriots of Boston, but for some self-entitled commodities traders shrieking "losers!" on cable television. They were sneering at struggling homeowners, mocking middle-class people like the Tea Partiers themselves. And they were enraged at the idea that ordinary families might be rescued the same way their own financier class had been rescued."

"They won. Nobody's rescued the middle class yet. Unlike them, the Founders believed in common purpose. They shared George Washington's goal of "protecting the rights of humane nature and establishing an Asylum for the poor and oppressed of all nations and religions." They understood what conservatives don't: There's a difference between declaring independence and telling people they're on their own."

"We fought for the principles of self-representation and economic freedom. Those principles are under attack again today. But there's no place for rhetorical violence (or any other kind) in today's debate. When corporations intimidate us with economic pressure and distorted information, the best responses are communication and mobilization."

"We resisted Britain's state-sanctioned monopolies in 1776. Today's government-sanctioned corporations hang out on Wall Street, not by the chartered Thames. The spirit of the East India Company lives in the five banks which now control nearly 96% of the derivatives market
in this country. Our financial oligarchs receive Treasury Department money, Federal Reserve giveaways, and get-out-of-jail-free cards for a corporate crime wave that would make Al Capone blush."
