Those gop Govs are Doing Real Well

It never ceases to amaze me how millions of voters can consistently vote against their own best interests when it comes to electing the people who pass the laws they must live with in their daily lives, and who like and support politicians while despising the policies they pass into law. Of the 50 states, currently 31 have republican governors. and almost without exception, they are despised and vilified by a majority of their constituents, but somehow they get re-elected, and if not, another younger, richer and most extreme republican takes their place.

A recent study in the news this week has listed the most hated and disapproved governors in the US, and to no surprise, of the 15 most disliked governors, 12 are republicans.

Among that top 15, you have mindless nincompoops like Oklahoma’s Mary Fallin who twiddles her Koch-Brothers thumbs while her state has seen pervasive and restricted fracking increase earthquakes in the state from, well, NEVER, to oh, HUNDREDS of 3.0 and above per year. You have philanders like Alabama’s Robert Bentley whose affair with a

state-paid “advisor” is under investigation for numerous ethical and financial violation. You have Rick Snyder of Michigan who who put profit and punishment of political rivals above the health and safety of the state’s residents by ordering and implementing the pervasive use of poisoned water to millions. You have the truly evil and disgusting anti-worker Paul LePage, recently critiqued on Chronicles of Evil, who has a long history of racism and outrageous behavior. You have Wisconsin’s Scott Walker who virtually moments after taking office began implementing the Koch Bros. agenda by eliminating state environmental regulations and drastically reducing state corporate taxes throwing the state into financial chaos which he used as leverage to cut pay and benefits to state workers. You have North Carolina’s Pat McCrory the leader of the Bathroom Police who wants to check your parts in order to tell you which toilet you can use. You have Matt Bevin of Kentucky who campaigned on ending the state’s immensely successful kynect health insurance program, ending the state’s Medicaid expansion and throwing hundreds of thousands of residents off of their long-needed and never before available health insurance, and also firing 20% of the state’s employees. And you have Mike Pence, who ran from a certain re-election defeat to be trump’s running mate after his attempt to establish an Indiana state religion and a pure theocratic government went down in flames.

And I didn’t even mention the two worst of them all, Kansas’ Brownbeck and New Jersey’s Christie, who right now is likely shaking in his Gucci loafers waiting to hear the testimony of his former aids who are about to tell the real facts of his corrupt administration in the ongoing Federal “Bridgegate” criminal trial.

About theHoundDawg

For many years as a lawyer, I saw much of the good and bad of society, and did what I could to right many wrongs. The lack of understanding of what is good and bad, right and wrong, just and unjust, as evidenced by such events as the election of King W as president, (who as such far surpassed the evil of richard nixon but not quite that of ronald reagan) lead me in a new direction, to spend my time trying to understand what is happening to our society, to try as best I can to spread my insights to others, and along the way to maybe even eke out a living through the internet.
