"Whatever gets them good press," Terry said of members giving up their salary. "That’s all that it’s going to be. God bless them. But you know what? I’ve got a nice house and a kid in college, and I’ll tell you we cannot handle it. Giving our paycheck away when you still worked and earned it? That’s just not going to fly."
Shorter Rep. Lee Terry (R-NE2): “I’m sure other people have similar problems; I simply do not care about them.”
Politicalprof: even shorter: “I earn my federal paycheck. All those other government workers don’t.”
Lee Terry, for your ignorance, you are gleefully welcomed to sit down in your “nice house” and SHUT UP.
That’s Robert Canoles of Porterdale, GA who is probably better known as the assmonkey who held his new neighbors at gunpoint with a semi-automatic rifle in some concept of “protecting” his community from homeowners changing their own locks.
The idea of calling the police and letting them come and handle it? Well, he did, and the police arrested the homeowners, but that’s all sorted out and now Canoles is rightfully charged with aggravated assault, false imprisonment and criminal trespass because he wasn’t on his own property and had no right to do what he did.
And now he’s whining.
Listen, Bobby, vigilantism may feel good to pumped up he-men with semi-autos, but it’s against the law. The Second Amendment doesn’t give you the right to train a weapon on anybody you want to, just because you think you should. I’m gonna give you free advice that hopefully your lawyer has already imparted: STFU!
That odious little tidbit came from Sanford, Florida city commissioner Randy Jones upon Sanford’s refusal of the resignation of police chief Bill Lee. Followers of the blog recognize Sanford, FL as the location of the killing of Trayvon Martin and Chief Lee as the head of the police department that so botched the investigation the Department of Justice had to step in.
This little racist morsel of dreck, however, takes it to a whole new level of ugly.
Randy, you shmuck, STFU.
That’s ultramega bigot and, apparently, illiterate Rep. Virginia Foxx (R-NC) blathering about college debt, and explaining why she has “very little tolerance” for people who have even $80,000 in student loans on their back when they graduate. Why doesn’t Foxx tolerate it? Because everyone can just work their way through school (taking up to seven years) like she did!
That’s leaving aside the fact that Foxx’s seven years were at a public university, the Univ. of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, where taxpayers subsidize tuition, enabling student costs to be held down. We’ll also leave aside the fact that Foxx’s seven years were 1954 - 1961, when tuition was assuredly not more than $20,000 per year for North Carolina residents. And yes, that’s subsidized.
What’s most terrifying is that Foxx was, once upon a time, president of a community college, someone who should’ve recognized the increasing cost of higher education (even during her tenure which was ‘87 - ‘94) considering that community colleges have long sold themselves on their value in holding college costs down because that’s a known issue.
Virginia Foxx, for your ignorance, for your intolerance, for your ongoing habit of opening up your mouth and letting completely counterfactual crap fall out (usually in places where you won’t be challenged, like this gem which was on the G. Gordon Liddy show, of all places) you are heartily welcomed to STFU. All weekend long.

More accurately, Zimmerman wouldn’t have killed a white boy to begin with. Trayvon Martin was deemed “suspicious” because he was black, period, and Newt and everyone else is going to have to face up to that. Eventually.
Welcome to the new era of STFU Today. Right this minute this goes from an angry quote-and-rant blog to a full fledged political blog because this utter wankery privileged FULLY FALSE nonsense from Virginia’s governor (and GOP VP hopeful) Bob McDonnell deserves a full-fledged debunking. And here it goes.
Let’s start with his assertion that the “war on women” is nothing more than “political theater.”
Y’all remember Chuck “Rape Issue” Winder from yesterday, right? Well, he’s back, and trying to clarify what he was meaning to try to say about the rape issue thing and failing again.
Chuck, Chuck, Chuck, for fuck’s sake, stop talking. STFU Chuck. Just STFU.
Where do we even start? This is Chuck Winder, a Republican state senator in Idaho, trying to explain something about rape and abortion.
Chuck was explaining something about why there isn’t a rape/incest exception in the mandatory DOUBLE ultrasound bill that just passed in Idaho, but goodness knows what. He apparently thinks that only married people can be raped, or maybe that only married people get pregnant? Or that people are confused about when they’ve been raped? Or that being asked by the doctor about rape makes a difference when his bill offers no exemption from having to have two separate ultrasounds (one done by anti-abortion activists) in order to access abortion care?
I don’t think Chuck knows.
I think Chuck’s a big old ball of ignorant, arrogant, assumptive nonsense.
And I know that Chuck needs to STFU.
In his first (but surely not last) appearance, here’s Mitt Romney mansplaining with a glib non-answer and a waved hand about his plan for reproductive healthcare access. What’s interesting is that for him, it’s all about “freedom.” But what he’s not saying is this: he’s pledged to both defund Planned Parenthood and repeal the Affordable Care Act (aka Obamacare) which will leave people without insurance and without much money with very little if any choice whatsoever for getting healthcare. They could go “wherever they’d like” for their care, but they wouldn’t be able to pay for it. But that’s something that a lifelong millionaire like Romney just can’t seem to understand.
So let me explain it to you, Mitt. You cannot take away the means of access to healthcare and affordable insurance from people then expect that they’re now more free, more able and better cared for. It just doesn’t work.
So Mitt, here’s a hint from me to you: Shut Your Glib, Lying, Facile, Mansplaining Mouth. STFU Mitt. STFU and maybe, maybe, try thinking about the end results of the policies you’re promoting, you assmonkey.
