Updates From The Sad World of Angry Old White People

America wakes up to find; President Obama reelected, marijuana & gay marriage legalized in two states. The world of angry old white men has just received a kick in the sack. Hip hip hooray! You can spin any way you want but it was a bad day for the Fox News / GOP rightwing freak show.

This morning I thought it might be fun to take a look at some of last nights sad losers.

Ted Nugent Declares 'I Will Either Be Dead or in Jail' if Obama Is Re-elected

Last April Ted was speaking at a NRA event when he made this statement and we can only hope he is a man of his word.

And on the subject of uncle Ted let's take look at the story that this tough guy gun nut avoided the draft by, among other things, shitting himself. He told this story in a High Times interview and has since said that he / they made it up. Also he claims that he got out of the draft with a student deferment. An examination of his selective service does show that he did fail his physical exam. There is a fairly extensive examination of this story is found at snopes.com


Donald Trump: Election Is 'Total Sham And A Travesty,' Suggests 'Revolution' Is Necessary

In the news of today we have this tired old windbag checking in.

“Popular vote totals at the time of his tweet showed Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney with a narrow lead over Obama, with votes still left to count.
In a later tweet, Trump called the Electoral College, which allowed observers to call the election for Obama at around 11:12 p.m. on Tuesday night, a "disaster for a democracy." Twelve years ago, many Democrats would have likely agreed, as a hotly contested race in Florida gave the 2000 presidential election to Republican George W. Bush, who lost the popular vote.
It remains to be seen whether Trump has had an honest revelation in favor of electoral reform or is simply upset that Obama's victory deprived him of an opportunity to tweet "You're Fired!" on Tuesday night. '



Of course the President has gone on the beat Romney by more than three million votes.



What did the Sheldon and Miriam Adelson get for their money? (Not much)



Meanwhile we have the scorecard for Sheldon Adelson billionaire casino owner who spent over $50,000,000 on candidates to advance his right wing agenda. Why would a man spend that much money? Is there something he's afraid of? Lets Take a look at couple of his problems,

“A new investigation finds Adelson may have violated the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act by paying a Macau lawyer hundreds of thousands of dollars, all in a bid to get approval for his projects in Macau, a special administrative region in China. Billions in profits were on the line.”

“The WSJ wrote that the U.S. Attorney’s office in Las Vegas is looking into whether Sands and its executives violated U.S. anti-money laundering laws by failing to report suspicious activity by two big-spending gamblers.
The investigation involves Zhenli Ye Gon (who has been indicted on counts of trafficking methamphetamine ingredients) and Ausaf Umar Siddiqui, (a former executive of Fry’s Electronics who went to jail on bribe charges) who wired tens of millions of dollars to the Sands Venetian casino in Las Vegas during the mid-2000s.”



And finally from the truly weird world of Glen Beck we get these deep thoughts.

Denim Magnate Glenn Beck: If Obama Wins, ‘We Have To Be Destroyed’




“Back behind the mic, it seems the Fox-dropped zealot is still doing what he does best: scaring the ever-living shit out of his flock with Biblical messages of fire and brimstone. Beck on Monday said that if the American people are “so dead inside that they can no longer see the difference between good and evil” — aka re-electing a demagogue like President Obama — then “we have to be destroyed because we will be a remarkable evil on this planet.””
