Typically unable to find their own butt with both hands, utterly useless when it comes to cleaning-up their messes, and proudly blind to fact-based reality, a contingent of mostly right-wing anti-welfare, anti-liberal, anti-socialist, anti-Democratic, Bible-beating Christian Republicans plan to go on a fun-filled junket to Sacramento where they will plead with the big bad liberal Democratic state to save them from themselves.

“…“We’re hoping to get 0 percent interest for 20 years and not to exceed 1 percent for the remaining 10,” Jennifer Poland, public information officer for the water district, said.
“…Traveling to Sacramento for Tuesday’s [March 17, 2015] meeting will be Hi-Desert Water District General Manager Ed Muzik, Assistant General Manager Mark Ban, Chief Financial Officer Rochelle Clayton, Public Information Officer Jennifer Poland, board President Bob Stadum, directors Sarann Graham and Roger Mayes, Yucca Valley Town Manager Curtis Yakimow, Mayor George Huntington and Chamber of Commerce President Wanda Stadum.
“Muzik said Wednesday that Assemblyman Chad Mayes, of Yucca Valley, and Senator Jean Fuller, of Bakersfield, may also speak to the board to ask for a lower interest rate.”
The funniest part will be when the loans are approved and the headlines read: Republicans bring home the bacon! Republicans get the job done! Or even, We won! David slays Goliath!
Then, in order to finance their re-elections, they’ll hand the contracts over to friends and family to manage the monies and mismanage the work. They’ll explain it by insisting that they’re “blessed.” If you attend their town council meetings you’ll hear them bleat, “As this is a government meeting we now request that you stand up and show respect to our religion and our God whose will and desires we are here to serve and obey.”
At that point a proper response ought to be, ” Go fuck yourselves with your stinking goddamn gods, your fucked-up demons and all your crappy religions. Just get the fuck out of here and take your filthy, phony, trumped-up wars, your insane, lunatic incompetence, and all your criminal, inhuman, bogus, self-serving political platforms with you.”
In other words, as one of their “esteemed” national leaders, Senator John McCain recently screamed to a group of female anti-war and anti-torture protesters, “Get out of here, you low-life scum!” (http://www.reuters.com/article/2015/01/29/us-usa-mccain-protesters-idUSKBN0L22V520150129).
