ROSEANNE BARR, THE OFFICIAL KOOK CANDIDATE?
Here we are at a time when I think it very safe to say that our country is most definitely at a crossroads, a place that we never have been before throughout our history. And yet, we seem to have far too many who seem to think it's all too funny. I mention this only because we now have a pathetic old hag, professing that she is “concerned” enough to seek the highest office in the land. Granted, she has not a snowball’s chance in hell of winning, I can only assume that she sees it as a way to get herself back into the lime-light and to do nothing more than to make a freakin joke out of our current fiscal and economic mess. For those of you who might not have heard, it seems that Roseanne Barr has thrown her raggedy old ass into the political ring, having announced on Thursday that she’s running for the Green Party’s presidential nomination. Old Roseanne said in the statement announcing her intentions, that she’s a longtime supporter of the party and looks forward to working with people who share her values. Boy, now there's a scary proposition, God only knows what "values" this cow has, but I feel pretty confident in saying that they're not the values possessed by a majority of Americans.
Barr, in announcing her desire for the Green Party nomination, went on to say that the two major parties we have today are no longer serving the American people. “The Democrats and Republicans have proven that they are servants — bought and paid for by the 1% — who are not doing what’s in the best interest of the American people,” Barr said. Oh really? What about all of those, loafers, who are doing nothing more than to live off of the rest of us? You know those Occupy Wall Street protesters who popularized the “We are the 99 percent” bumper sticker slogan in their fight against economic disparity and perceived corporate greed. If memory serves, old Barr was one of the more vocal supporters of this little group of parasites, saying at the time that we should "lop off the heads of bankers" as a way of correcting our problem. Really? Now there’s a serious recommendation. This moron ranks right up there with every other flaming nut job who calls that asylum of Hollywood, home. Even though these days I guess Barr spends most of her time on a 46-acre macadamia nut farm in Hawaii. That's kinda fitting, don't you think? You know, one big nut owning a farm where she's growing a bunch of smaller nuts.
Supposedly, Barr has already submitted all of the necessary paperwork to the Green Party that permits her to move forward in her quest. The party’s presidential nominee will be selected at a convention in Baltimore in July. Man, can you image the loons that will be showing up for that little freak show? Must make the Democrats jealous. Anyway, Barr said she has been fighting for working-class families and women for decades. Doing what exactly? “I will barnstorm American living rooms,” she said in a candidate questionnaire submitted to the Green Party. “Mainstream media will be unable to ignore me, but more importantly they will be unable to overlook the needs of average Americans in the run-up to the 2012 election.” I think it pretty safe to say that all but the most idiotic among us will most assuredly ignore her. If she gains the nomination it will prove just how far out there on the loony left fringe those who call the Green Party home really are. But hey, if this is the person they wish to represent them, so be it. It just makes it all that much easier to show them for what they are. An odd assortment of fruits, nuts and flakes, all of whom, seem to hate this country.
Now, I'm sure that we all remember, and like it was only yesterday, Barr's 1990 shrieking rendition of the Star-Spangled Banner at a packed Jack Murphy Stadium before a ballgame between the San Diego Padres and the Cincinnati Reds. She then proceeded to top that off by then spitting on the field and grabbing her crotch. Critics of her performance were joined by then-President George H.W. Bush, who called it 'disgraceful'. Personally I think I could have come up with a much better, as well as accurate, description, but I suppose the president shouldn't be using that kind of language. While Barr's presidential campaign filing became official yesterday, she announced her desire to run for America's highest office in May 2010 on her website. In a lengthy campaign speech posted on her website, she said her campaign platform is three-fold, 1) Make war illegal and legalize hemp, 2) change the demographics of government, and 3) and, what she calls the most important, she says she will outlaw bullshit. Quite an impressive list of goals and ones that most certainly will result in getting our country turned around and back onto some semblance of solid fiscal footing solvency. Don’t you think?
Now while I fully support Ms. Barr's right to run for president, I feel well within my rights to question what her motives really are. Ya know if things were going a little better in this country maybe I would be able to laugh at all of such silly antics by the likes of Ms. Barr. But with us now rapidly going down the tubes and with those who are of the same political persuasion as Barr being responsible, there is nothing about this that can be considered as being even remotely funny. But who knows, maybe she'll be the Green Party's nominee and will succeed in taking enough votes from Barry "Almighty" making it all that much easier for our guy, whoever it is, to win. Loons like Barr really tick me off. And it seems like they are increasing in number and at a rather alarming rate. And I have a really hard time understanding what it is that makes people like her tick. I mean I think most of us understand what's going to be needed to get done before we are to have any hope of being able to recover, fiscally and economically. And it most assuredly doesn't include expanding our already out of control entitlement programs and jacking up already too high taxes.
