You Might Be A Political Extremist If...

FacebookTwitterRedditDiggStumbleUponTumblrLinkedInPinterestEmailShare

you  might be a redneck

I always got a lot of laughs while watching Jeff Foxworthy with his routine, "You Might Be A Redneck." You've all heard some of his "You might be a redneck:"

  • If you mow your lawn and discover a car.
  • If your dad walks you to school because you're both in the same grade.
  • If someone asks to see your ID and you show them your beltbuckle.
  • If someone comes to your door every day thinking you might be having a yard sale.
  • If you ever made change in the 'offering' plate.
  • If you go to a family reunion to meet women.

You get the idea, I'm sure.

Well, Veracity Stew has printed out a "You might be..." of it's own. Only this one is the "You might be an extremist" test. Here's a sampling:

Until nothing remains

YOU  MIGHT BE A POLITICAL EXTREMIST IF:

  • If you think an Assault Weapons Ban “gives jackbooted Government thugs more power to take away our constitutional rights, break in our doors, seize our guns, destroy our property and even injure and kill us”…
  • If you try to control what other people do with their stinky parts…
  • If you display any Confederate flag in any way….
  • If you think there is a spy drone in the sky watching you in your backyard….
  • If you think the federal government feels constrained in any way by the fact that Skeeter in Southswamp, Georgia, owns an AR-15
  • If you think paying taxes is the same thing as slavery….
  • If you still think there is any doubt that the globe is heating up or that human activity is a driver….
  • If you resent it when government or business communicates with people in a language other than English….
  • If you think that the president is a socialist, fascist, communist or any twisted combination thereof….
  • If you question the president’s birthplace and citizenship….
  • If you think Obama is intending to create a “new” military, as strong as the U.S. military, answerable only to him….
  • If you think you, as en employer, have the “right” to impose your morals on your employees….
  • If you think the government is secretly plotting to take away all guns….
  • If you support giving full legal and constitutional rights to fertilized eggs….
  • If you think that people standing in a group and singing songs is a reason to tackle, handcuff, arrest, jail, and fine the singers….
  • If you think it’s a good day when children living in poverty cannot get government nutritional assistance….
  • If only 23% of Americans believe your party is “in touch with the concerns of most people in the United States today,” and 70% believe that it is “out of touch”….
  • If you’re calling for assassination, secession or insurrection….
  • If you have to gerrymander voting districts and disenfranchise millions of voters to win elections….
  • If you think it’s OK for an armed, full-grown man to pursue and kill an unarmed boy….
  • If you’re willing to shut down the government over women’s access to contraception….

Texas Wants To Secede Union, Gov Perry Not So Much

FacebookTwitterRedditDiggStumbleUponTumblrLinkedInPinterestEmailShare

Looks like Texas wants it mostest.

Just a week after President Barack Obama was re-elected, a petition by Texans for the right to secede from the rest of the country has garnered some 64,000 signatures, many more than the 25,000 signature threshold needed to get a response from the Obama administration.

The petition was made on the government's "We the People" petitioning web site, along with secession petitions from at least 18 other states.

The Texas petition to "peacefully" secede has gained by far the most traction of any state, citing "economic difficulties" related to the actions of the federal government in Texas, and "blatant abuses" of Texans' rights by the National Defense Authorization Act and Transportation Security Administration.

But it's hard to run for President again in 2016 if you've also pumped up secession.

(CNN) – An appeal calling on the federal government to allow Texas to "withdraw from the United States of America" following President Barack Obama's re-election doesn't have the support of the Lone Star State's governor, his office said in a statement Tuesday.

"Gov. [Rick] Perry believes in the greatness of our Union and nothing should be done to change it," his press secretary Catherine Frazier wrote in a statement to the Dallas Morning News. "But he also shares the frustrations many Americans have with our federal government."

Poll: Florida voters opposed to a public health care option

FacebookTwitterRedditDiggStumbleUponTumblrLinkedInPinterestEmailShare


I was going to go all "What's the matter with Florida", but I know better. Most of Florida is rural Alabama south, with small areas of Sun City Retirement Communities, so you have yokels who don't believe in government vs doddering elders afraid their government entitlements will be taken away. Gah.

TALLAHASSEE -- In a state where 20 percent of the population is uninsured, Florida voters are opposed to a major Democratic plan to provide more health care coverage, according to a Miami Herald/St. Petersburg Times/Bay News 9 poll.

About 47 percent oppose the so-called "public option," while 40 percent support the proposal to provide a government-run insurance plan.

Voters opposed the public option in every area of the state except one: South Florida. There, 54 percent favor the proposal and only 37 percent are opposed. The area with the strongest opposition: Southwest Florida, where 30 percent support the proposal and 50 percent oppose it.
