Petticoat Junction

For obvious reasons.

Come ride the little train that is rolling down the tracks to the junction.
Forget about your cares, it is time to relax at the junction.

Lotsa curves, you bet
Even more, when you get
To the junction

There’s a little hotel called the Shady Rest at the junction.
It is run by Kate, come and be her guest at the junction.
And that’s Uncle Joe, he’s a movin’ kind of slow at the junction,
Petticoat Junction.

There are few people we need less in the Democratic Primary than Crazy Uncle Joe Biden. Far trom having a “Progressive” record “that can stand against anyone’s”, he’s simply a Corporatist Neo Liberal Blue Dog DLC Third Way Republican who’s a Democrat of convenience in a Blue State.

When pressed on his bona fides to be identified as having even the most modest and minuscule Liberal credentials he stammers, “I’m an Obama/Biden Democrat.” I got news for you Uncle Joe- Obama ain’t that Liberal. In addition to the already mentioned stuff, Obama was in favor of “Don’t Ask. Don’t Tell.” and against Same Sex marriage. Obama said he was “an Eisenhower Republican.” What part of Republican are we missing here?

Likewise Legalization, not that it’s a Litmus test for me, otherwise I’d be voting Rand Paul.

Here’s a very short list of other ways in which Joe Biden is not a Democrat-

  • He’s been a strong Wall Street ally
  • He voted to gut welfare
  • He wrote the original ‘94 crime bill and has defended it ever since
  • He’s a proponent of the War on Drugs
  • He voted for the Iraq War
  • He voted and likely laid the groundwork for the USA PATRIOT Act
  • He voted for the 2006 border fence
  • He’s unreliable (at best) on Net Neutrality
  • He voted for NAFTA and supported the TPP
  • He allowed Anita Hill to be silenced and shamed

Oh, and-

  • He was against School Integration and Busing

Of course the Vapid Versailles Villagers love him because they live in a pretend fantasy world of Tip’nRonnie comity, co-operation, courtesy, and bi-partisanship that is just as bogus and fake as the sets of a cheesy SitCom.

Joe, it’s 2019 not 1970. Time for you to get down to Drucker’s, sit around the Cracker Barrel, and play some Checkers with Fred Ziffle and Arnold the Wonder Pig.
