This Week In Crazy: Rick Perry Makes It Rain

Share
Rick Perry

Who wants to take a shower with Mike Huckabee? It’s bring your gun to school day! Glenn Beck says Rick Perry’s hard rain’s a-gonna fall. It’s “This Week In Crazy,” The National Memo’s weekly update on the wildest attacks, conspiracy theories, and other loony behavior from the increasingly unhinged right wing. Starting with number five:

5. Vince Vaughn 

Vince VaughnVince Vaughn would like you to know that he is very, very pro-gun:

Vaughn recently did an interview with GQ to promote the second season of HBO’s True Detective, during which he rolled out the old conservative line about how mass shooters only target places where guns are not permitted — even though there’s no evidence to back up this claim.

The answer, for people who believe such nonsense, is always “more guns.” More guns in movie theaters, libraries, and, yes, schools.

Vaughn said:

I support people having a gun in public full stop, not just in your home. We don’t have the right to bear arms because of burglars; we have the right to bear arms to resist the supreme power of a corrupt and abusive government. It’s not about duck hunting; it’s about the ability of the individual.

“Banning guns,” Vaughn continued, “is like banning forks in an attempt to stop making people fat. Taking away guns, taking away drugs, the booze, it won’t rid the world of criminality.”

Thing is, there are plenty of ways to get fat without forks (ice cream?). But how many readily available, widely legal, and sparsely regulated ways are there to kill 26 people in less than 10 minutes?

Incidentally, this Tuesday was National Gun Violence Prevention Day, so the NRA encouraged its members to “splurge on a new gun.”

    We know our society is in trouble when charlatans who proudly proclaim that climate change is influenced by divine intervention prompted by prayer, when idiots believe that the solution to gun violence in America is for everyone to walk around with a gun, and all the other bizarre statements and “solutions” to legitimate problems are proclaimed by opportunists with the full support of a rap, ignorant, audience.
    Considering what is happening in the USA today, including the support that so many Americans extend to policies of interventionism in the internal affair of other nations, it is not too hard to understand why Hitler and his gang managed to convince most Germans of the need to support reprehensible acts of inhumanity and eternal warfare for the good of the Fatherland.

        Should we assume that his prayers were so effective that they produced the 2015 floods? Who needs scientists with erudite charlatans like Beck, Limbaugh, and the rest of the gang around. The scary part of this is that a lot of people believe them.

    The only thing that surprised me about the current “This Week in Crazy” is Sam left out Rick Santorum (a lawyer, professional politician and lobbyist) telling the Pope (a trained scientist) to shut up about climate change, thus threatening personal excommunication from the Roman Catholic Church.

    What many gun rights persons keep harping on is what irritates me. NO president can take away their guns BUT we the people can restrict the laws if we are pushed enough. We the people have more power to amend the constitution than any one president or all of them put together. As for that idiot Rush, we know it can be done. it was done during civil rights. The blowing up of churches with children inside. Over 100 of them. beatings. Dogs. Fire hoses. All because we wanted the vote, integrate, civil rights. Be careful of what you say or ask for. If you do not remember the past, you are definitely doomed to repeat it. THAT was their answer for going aginst their considered mainstream ideology.

    Why is it that nut cases like Erik Rush harp on the idea that marriage equality violates the constitution…..but they NEVER say in what way it does so? They must have a problem with reading comprehension if they can’t understand the clear wording of the 14th amendment……or they’ve simply never taken a moment to read it in the first place.
    I’m convinced that Scalia, Thomas, and Alito have never read it or at least comprehended its actual meaning. I wish T. Jefferson could come back for just a moment to explain it to them.

      My contention is that this is somewhere somehow about money, not about morality. If gay marriage somehow cheapens marriage, someone from the religious right will have to explain to me why they are not protesting BIG TIME ALL THE TIME at media corporate hq’s and board meetings the proliferation of ‘Bachelor,’ ‘Bachelorette’ and other so-called reality shows that totally mock the institution of heterosexual marriage. It’s because the money involved in those enterprises deflects criticism, while the money (mostly corporate) involved in supporting gay marriage (health insurance, other benefits) argue for ‘morality.’

    So to Vince Vaughn all those nut jobs who after getting psyched up to do mass shootings playing First Person Shooting Games (according to the NRA) where they are trying to shoot armed opponents would be slowed down by the presence of armed opponents. That’s completely illogical in additional to having no known correlation to known events. In the Colorado attack the perpetrator was prepared for an armed opponent – he was wearing body armor.

    In the real attacks by these individuals undertaken with the apparent intent of doing massive damage – going out in a blaze of gory glory. Are going to shy away from the challenge of armed opponents like they’ve faced hundreds of times in those first person shooters. Not likely.

    Logically it would seem that places where armed folks could be would be a prime target for these nutjobs.

    Besides the attackers/mass killers in the making have their guns at the ready locked and loaded, while someone with a concealed handgun must get it out, release the trigger lock (hopefully) by which time unless you are a real quick draw artist the attacker has had plenty of time to fill you with lead.

    The logic of the answer to too many guns in the wrong hands is to make it easier to put more guns in wrong hands is indescribable.

      I wonder if those gun nuts here who think someone with a gun can necessarily stop an attacker, realize that when Aaron Alexis went on a shooting spree in the DC Navy Yard and killed 12 people, that 3 of those killed were actually packing concealed weapons. Their guns not only didn’t stop Alexis, the guns didn’t save their lives either. And when the 2 nuts from the Bundy standoff later killed a guy at a Home Depot – that guy was also carrying a weapon which didn’t help him.

I also hope he removed the ‘N’ word from his door step. He made one mistake though during his speech – he said he graduated from college. This was an insult to Scott Walker of Wisconsin who dropped out of school and wants to do away with universities for they flunked him. Perry made Walker’s life really miserable. I thought they belonged to the same party -TEA Party.

          Being I wouldn’t own a gun on a bet, I’m actually almost 5 times less likely to get killed by a gun than you are, if you’re stupid enough to believe the NRA’s lies and actually own one.

          Although you may be too ignorant to realize it, if you own a gun, you should be far more afraid than I would ever be. And my moving to Europe would do nothing to save the lives of any of the 30 plus thousand people in America who die each year from being killed by a gun, either by accident or by homicide, or by using one to commit suicide.

          Studies have shown that of the more than e 30,000 killed each year by guns, more than 80% own a gun or live in a home where one is kept. So again, it’s even people just in a home that is stupid enough to own and keep a gun around, who should really be fearing for their lives!!!!! As studies show that they are 4.46 times more likely to be killed by a gun than someone like me who doesn’t own one.

        Except, of course, for those two little set-tos in 1914-18 and 1939-45 (the second one partially financed by Prescott Bush), which Europeans seem to have LEARNED FROM finally, but we have not.

        The sun only appears to rise and set because of the Earth’s rotation on it’s axis. As the Earth rotates, different locations on Earth pass through the Sun’s light and seem to create the illusion of the Sun rising. The Sun actually stays at the center of the Solar system and it doesn’t really rise and set. It just appears to rise but it doesn’t actually.

            A study, done at Standford University, proves that ideologues have their notions firmly fixed in their mind and their mind resists all efforts to give them facts to think about. Also, when you ask them for facts, they either lie or start name calling. This is usually environmental and it is their loyalty to their environment. You notice they pat each other on the back and continue to try and abuse those who think differently.

That’s the good part of it. For example, if I hear someone make a wisecrack that so and so is so dumb he probably thinks that it’s raining money if someone says that there is “change” in the weather—I can immediately comeback with, “then what does make it rain?”

    The several listed “crazies” comments on the Bruce/Caitlyn Jenner story I find oh so typical and predictable, however, I watched the interview with Diane Sawyer that Jenner said with reference to President Obama, “I’ve never been a big fan. I’m kind of on the conservative side. Is it a bad thing, I believe in the constitution.” I assume as ever in the alternate universe of Republican world, Jenner is suggesting the President does not ( clearly taking the stand of the far right wing and all those same talking heads that are attacking Jenner at this very minute!!!) the President is constantly “breaking the law” or defying the constitution! THAT IS THE HYPOCRISY THE CONSERVATIVE REPUBLICANS that I detest with every fiber of my being!!!! They create the propaganda lie as their meme since Jan. 20, 2009, feed to the weak minded idiots out there who hate and I have been watching this now for 7 years plus……it is contemptible. I don’t think Mitch McConnell or John Boehner whom Jenner says he would love to work with on this issue will EVER have the courage to even acknowledge what Jenner is doing………..and yet he still maintains he is a Republican WHILE NOT ONE of these yokels running for President have said one word of support for Jenner’s cause……..AMAZING!!! But yeah, attack the President and Liberals because they have the nerve to try and make it fairer for the transgender community or against the law to discriminate against the very woman you want to become Jenner…..”STUPID IS AS STUPID DOES”………Forrest Gump’s mother

    Vaughn is right about the constitutional intent of gun ownership. It isn’t about duck hunting or crime sprees. It’s about maintaining the people’s power.

    1. Independent1 June 6, 2015

      Maintaining the people’s power may be what’s in the mind of today’s clueless gun lovers because the SCOTUS bastardized the meaning of the Constitution back in a 2008 ruling claiming it applied to all Americans, while from the time the 2nd Amendment was ratified until 2008, virtually every court in the land understood the 2nd Amendment ONLY APPLIED, to maintaining America’s defenses against foreign invaders (and Indians) by ensuring that back in that time, there were militias that could be called up to protect our country. The writer of the 2nd Amendment, Madison, even mocked people like Thomas Jefferson and others, who had the misguided notion that states needed militias to protect themselves against the federal government. He said people like Jefferson were living with ‘chimerical fears’: fantasies of their own creation.

      Since there are no legitimate militias in America today, in realiity, the 2nd Amendment really applies to no one – and in reality, gives NO AMERICAN ‘the right’ to own a gun. Owning a gun should be a privilege like owning a car – and subject to the same level of governance.

        What the fear mongers do, I call creating dragons. I’ve printed this before, it is an excerpt from my book: “This happened way-back-when, in the middle ages, also known as the dark ages. When night fell people were afraid. They also avoided dark forests. So, a few knights, sitting around drinking tea, came up with a plan. Give them gold and they would save the land. From what? Aha,” let us call them dragons.” They would make the dragons fierce and dangerous. They donned their armor, took the gold and rode away. And the people said, “How brave they are!” They came back with tales of their feats. How they slew the fire-breathing dragons. How they kept the people safe. And that, my children, is how they soak the gullible. Invent an enemy, save the people from the illusion and laugh about their ignorance.” These dragons may be named Sharia or home invasion or they of any kind.

Eventually ripping off the American taxpayers for trillions of dollars, they and their cohorts in America’s supposed defense industry related companies, many of which, are really nothing more than legitimized thieves!!!

    Vince Vaughn claims he only wants “law abiding” citizens to have guns, but he favors policies which do not distinguish “law abiding” from “insane glory seeker” or “criminal” BEFORE they get their guns. And what happens when a “law abiding” gun owner TURNS INTO one of the other kinds of gun toter? Or his gun is STOLEN by criminals?

    Glenn beck thinks Rick Perry’s prayer and fasting, FOUR YEARS AGO, brought the rains to end this drought (but with lots of collateral damage, not unlike American drone attacks which kill others besides the “terrorists” they were targeting), but pumping trillions of tons of carbon into the atmosphere for centuries cannot change the global long term climate. So if his prayers are so effective, why doesn’t he pray for more jobs? Oh, maybe he does, but God isn’t sending any.

    Erik Rush thinks that a public which has now come to favor legalizing same sex marriage will now rush to the barricades to overthrow the government they elected, if SCOTUS rules the “wrong” way? Not unless a majority of his conservative minority attacks the REST OF THE PEOPLE, as Lenin’s “majority” attacked the rest of the Russian people.

    Rush Limbaugh thinks we as a country have NO WORSE PROBLEMS than a small number of people suffering from gender dysphoria can now get some relief. Rush should understand their suffering, since he seems to suffer from species dysphoria (should he get a pig-to-human operation, or just go back to the sty and live a “normal” porcine life?) and thinks he is a human.

    Mike Huckabee thinks that transgender protection laws would allow obviously straight people to “pretend” for a few minutes they are the opposite gender, just to get a “gender gander” so to speak? Does he realize that, were the laws proposed in effect when he was in high school, he would have to have DRESSED LIKE A GIRL, ACTED LIKE A GIRL, AND TAKEN A GIRL’S NAME FOR THE ENTIRE SCHOOL YEAR before any faculty members (or police) would believe he REALLY “felt like a woman” and let him join the girls in the shower? Are there really any straight men who would go in “drag” for months pretending to be women JUST to get into women’s restrooms? However, if he wants to start now, we could all get some laughs!
