From Speaker of the House to Pot Pusher

Before John Boehner joined Acreage Holdings, 420,000 people were arrested  for selling marijuana while he ran Congress — Quartz

Boo, ya bum, ya!

Remember John Boehner? He was the, ahem, “Republican” Speaker of the House who used to play golf with Obama. Leader of the opposition party–under whose direction there was no meaningful opposition at all. I think he also used to cry a lot.

What’s John Boehner doing now?

Since 2018, he’s been sort of a lobbyist for a major marijuana provider. He says he hasn’t smoked any pot yet himself, but he’s “open” to the idea (

And he’s got a new book out, too, decrying the Country Club & Bow Tie Party’s drift toward populism. Silly voters. And after all the elitists have done for you, too!

I had–past tense–a lot of friends who were serious pot-heads. It made them unspeakably dull.

What did we ever do as a nation to deserve being governed by the likes of Boehner?

Why ‘Trump is Winning’ is No Mystery

Isn’t it cozy, how President *Batteries Not Included and Speaker John Boehner can play golf together while our country turns into mush?

Watching the pinata game that is the Republican presidential nominating process, I find it amazing that the GOP bigwigs do not begin to understand how mad we are at them.

So they resort to pigs’ entrails and Tarot cards to try to explain “the Trump phenomenon.”  Let me see if I can make it simple for them–so simple, even a Republican big shot can understand it.

Guys, last November you told us you would stop Obama if we voted for you, so we did–handed you both houses of Congress. And then you turned around and spat in our faces. So we still have Obamacare and a ruptured southern border, and in addition to those, now we have homosexual pseudomarriage as “the law of the land” (without any law being passed) and an insane policy of helping Iran acquire nuclear weapons.

We do know that Donald Trump is not a “movement conservative,” whatever the dickens that is. What we do not know is what, if anything, “real conservatives” have been conserving lately.

Well, guys, we’ve had it. We’re not going to let you wipe your shoes on our faces anymore. We’re fed up with John Boehner, Mitch McConnell, the whole Bush gang, John McCain, and all the rest of them.

So we’re going to put Donald Trump in the White House, just to show you we can do it. He can’t possibly be anything but an improvement over what we’ve got now. But here’s what you Republican big shots must understand:

We support him because he’s not you.

We do not like what our leaders have allowed to be done to our country over the past seven years. We want it un-done. We want it scrapped and thrown away.

We reject you because you have been Obama’s accomplices.

It’s up to you to convince us that any of you should ever again be entrusted with a public office. I don’t know how you’re gonna do that, but you’d better think of something.
