There are so many but Jim Ziegler, Alabama’s State Auditor takes the prize.

Here is the big pig now.

We used a rather small picture as that is what this man is. Why is he the Big Jerk of the year. Well here goes.

‘Mary Was a Teenager.’ Alabama Republican Uses Jesus to Defend Roy Moore

“While some Republicans at the national level spoke out against Alabama Senate candidate Roy Moore on Thursday in the wake of allegations that he initiated sexual contact with a 14-year-old when he was in his 30s, Republicans from his own state seemed to have a different view — with one citing Jesus’ parents to defend Moore’s alleged behavior.

“Take Joseph and Mary. Mary was a teenager and Joseph was an adult carpenter. They became parents of Jesus,” Alabama state auditor Jim Ziegler told the Washington Examiner on Thursday.
Four women have told the Washington Post that Moore pursued relationships with them when they were teenagers and he was an adult. The women were between the ages of 14 and 18, while Moore was in his 30s at the time, according to the Post.”

Hey stupid that bit with Mary and Joseph was up to God. Joseph had nothing to do with it.  Ray Moore is just a nasty pedophile among many other things, is not God nor is he Joseph.

When will we end this nonsense.

The IRS says, Robert Mercer, the big Trump Donor owes $7,000,000,000 in back taxes.

Here is a photo of the rich WHITE Privileged Criminal.

That’s $7 billion. The man owes $7 billion dollars. People here in NYC go to jail for not paying their subway fare. To call this white privilege is an understatement.

One reply this problem that we find interesting is this. I think the reply is forgetting the little fact that it is his Hedge Fund not anyone else. You want to see the very rich in action and what their money can do check out the legal team that he has.

…His hedge fund, Renaissance, owes it. The legal team it has assembled includes B. John Williams, a former IRS chief counsel and tax court judge; Fred Goldberg, a former IRS commissioner; and Diane Ryan, the former chief of the agency’s appeals unit! https://www.bloomberg.com/…/dispute-over-mercer-hedge…

 Who is gonna win this? Who is going to be allowed a free ride?  Let’s us remember Madame Defarge and sit with her in all of this.

Windy City Times: Activist Ryne Poelker at Uptown Tent City Rally 9-18-2017

In from the Gay Liberation Network of Chicago.

Purge of Homeless People!

Despite his statements to the contrary, Alderman James Cappleman has led a multi-pronged, years long effort to drive homeless people, poorer people in general, and people of color out of the 46th Ward.

He has been a longtime opponent of working class people in the ward, prioritizing development for upper income “urban pioneers” (an appropriate term for would-be conquerors) while destroying homes and services for modest-income people who have long lived here.

His goal: Lincoln Park North, a trendy playground of boutiques and entertainment venues for whiter, richer, newly-arrived residents. Along the way, he’s enriching his developer friends / campaign contributors by doing their bidding.

His latest attack is the purposeful driving out of the people who inhabited Uptown’s Tent Cities, and the redesign of the Lake Shore Drive bridge viaducts with yuppie-pleasing bike paths on the sidewalks so as to intentionally keep homeless people away permanently. As if that was not enough, the purge of homeless people from the LSD viaducts has been accompanied by a new policy of preventing them from pitching tents ANYWHERE in the city.

In a city where homeless shelters are frequently full even in good weather, this a recipe for more injuries and perhaps deaths as the cold weather approaches. It is also a recipe guaranteed to increase trauma for people already in a highly stressful situation, as at least three homeless people suffered medical crisis during the series of evictions following the closure of the LSD viaducts.

You know we hadn’t had a Jerk Of All Times Award up until today when we saw this article:

Republican Blurts Out That Sick People Don’t Deserve Affordable Care

Some one should take this man to the woodshed. We are sure that many among us would think of some better things to do with this jerk but this being a nice respectable family blog we shant say it. Here he is folks, one fucking big asshole jerk for all times.

Republican Reprehensible  Mo Brooks of Alabama

and here is what the big jerk said:

Republicans usually defend their health-care position with an array of buzzwords like choice, patient-centric, or competition. In a CNN interview, Representative Mo Brooks, an Alabama Republican, makes the case for Trumpcare in much starker terms: It will free healthy people from having to pay the cost of the sick. “It will allow insurance companies to require people who have higher health care costs to contribute more to the insurance pool that helps offset all these costs, thereby reducing the cost to those people who lead good lives, they’re healthy, they’ve done the things to keep their bodies healt explained Brooks. “And right now, those are the people who have done things the right way that are seeing their costs skyrocketing.”

It is certainly true that the Republican health-care plan will spur insurance companies to charge more money to people with expensive medical needs, and less to healthier people. (It will also transfer hundreds of billions of dollars from the poor, who will get reduced Medicaid and tax credits to buy insurance, to the rich, who will receive a large tax cut.) The idea that morality dictates healthy people pay less, and sick people more, has been floating around the margins of conservative health-care thought. John Mackey, the libertarian owner of Whole Foods, made this case in a 2009 Wall Street Journal op-ed denouncing Obamacare:

Rather than increase government spending and control, we need to address the root causes of poor health. This begins with the realization that every American adult is responsible for his or her own health.

Unfortunately many of our health-care problems are self-inflicted: two-thirds of Americans are now overweight and one-third are obese. Most of the diseases that kill us and account for about 70% of all health-care spending—heart disease, cancer, stroke, diabetes and obesity—are mostly preventable through proper diet, exercise, not smoking, minimal alcohol consumption and other healthy lifestyle choices.

When Democratic Senator Tom Harkin in 2010 proposed that it was time to stop segregating Americans on the basis of health status, the conservative health-care analyst Jeffrey H. Anderson scoffed, “Having people pay their own way is apparently an injustice akin to segregating them by race or creed.”

Of course, you can’t pay your own way if you’re too poor or sick to afford your own projected medical costs. Indeed, sometimes people who are healthy at the moment find one day they are not, or they have a sick child, or maybe they simply want to have a baby. (The cost of bearing children is another one Republicans want to be borne entirely by those doing it.) The Republican plan expresses one of the core beliefs shared by movement conservatives, and utterly alien to people across the globe, right and left: that people who can’t afford the cost of their own medical care have nobody to blame but themselves.

Article from NY Magazine May 2017.

Notes:

  1. One thing for certain when enough people get sick and tired of folks like Mo Brooks there will be and heaven help them all such a just uprising and the big push them out of the way will happen. Mo Brooks many have your number and many more will we promise you. You know its a sad day when folks can not lend a hand to those who are down and out, to those who are sick and to those who need help. This is greed and if there is a god it is certain that this type of greed is purely wrong and shall be dealt with.
  2. Like other large employers, the government pays a large share of the cost of coverage. On average, the government pays 72 percent of the premiums for its workers, up to a maximum of 75 percent depending on the policy chosen. For example, the popular Blue Cross and Blue Shield standard fee-for-service family plan carries a total premium of $1,327.80 per month, of which the beneficiary pays $430.04. Washington, D.C.-based employees who prefer an HMO option might choose the Kaiser standard family plan. It carries a total premium of $825.15 per month, of which the employee pays only $206.29.
    In addition, members of Congress also qualify for some medical benefits that ordinary federal workers do not. They (but not their families) are eligible to receive limited medical services from the Office of the Attending Physician of the U.S. Capitol, after payment of an annual fee ($491 in 2007). But services don’t include surgery, dental care or eyeglasses, and any prescriptions must be filled at the member’s expense.
    House and Senate members (but not their families) also are eligible to receive care at military hospitals. For outpatient care, there is no charge at the Washington, D.C., area hospitals (Walter Reed Army Medical Center and National Naval Medical Center). Inpatient care is billed at rates set by the Department of Defense…Fact Check.Org. HERE.
  3. The Average Joe of Congress (there are 529 of them) gets paid $174,000 per year. But not everyone is average; the Speaker of the House gets $223,500 a year, while the majority and minority leaders of both the Senate and the House, along with the President Pro Tempore, get paid $193,400 per year…for more on this see HERE.

Pence Calls Gays To Voluntarily Quit Jobs With God-Fearing Employers “So We Can Avoid Laws That Reject Them”

“However, since we have more pressing issues at the moment, given the delicate political situation in the country, it’s less time-consuming for me to simply appeal gay people to resign from their conservative jobs themselves instead of exercising the law upon them. Think of it as the government’s way of being gentle and considerate, mind you, in a situation where we could very easily use a sledgehammer instead of this here scalpel,” Pence added. “We’d prefer gay people to answer this call while they can, because the situation will undoubtedly change in the future. Especially for them.”

Note: and folks over at the published article are stating, Pence is gay, Pence is gay. Well if he is you guys can claim him. We do not care if he is gay or straight by his words we know one thing. The man is a dangerous threat to our Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender and Queer community. A real threat. So for all of those folks who are wishing that the buffoon trump gets impeached what is waiting in the wings is far more dangerous. Again we say if this community does not build a strong united front with others who are targets of the administration then we will surely lose this war against us. Our issues will be meaningless and our rights just mere words on a piece of paper. Just ask Women, African American, Indigenous Peoples about the words on paper that they have been given by this government.

Yes folks dance the night away but prepare for a battle as the lines are drawn and there is no going back.
