________  AN OCTOHEX ________

Overbearing, brimming with conceit,
Caustic, condescending, filled with bile,
This self-styled judge’s mammoth self-deceit
Overlooks the flaws that prove him vile.
Tirelessly spoiling for a fight,
Underrating, scorning those unlike
Rotten Reds whom he adores on sight.
Despicable as the predatory shrike,
‘Tis but his claim to erudition that saves his
Sour soul from condign persecution. 
Smart Alecs of his ilk avoid close shaves, as
Others of his kind shirk retribution. 
Unpleasant to a fault he lives to vex 
Lavishly, –– so he has earned this hex.

  1. I totally agree with you.
    As we have seen here on this very site, with The 3 liberal Caballeros, Heckle, Schmeckle, and Donald "Ducky" Duck Otherwise known as Ducky, Dave Miller and Octupi, turtles, Seahorses, Clown fish, Jellyfish, and any other sea creatures
    We as Republican’s have a special appreciation for our veterans, we not only honor our veterans on Veterans Day, but every other day of the year.
    We don’t give them a half-assed Salute with a cup of coffee in the same hand, nor do we call the ones protection our White House names. Any child or even an adolescent would know better than to do that, but it seems that our dear leader doesn’t. Just how disrespectful can the one elected to be our leader be?
    Obama’s disdain for the military has no end, as does Hilliry Clinton’s and her “lovelry” daughter either for that matter..
    Well you Liberals, you wanted a Kenyan Community Organizer for president and you gout your wish! . And if you think that it can’t get any worse, just wait till you elect Socialist Hillary Clinton. She and her comrades are solely responsible for the murdering of 4 brave and loyal American’s in Bengazi, so just think about that when you enter the voting booths, and we did last week when we swept the floor with the Democratic candidates in that Blood Bath.. .
    Now that they hold both chambers, will the GOP properly impeach Obama if he continues to violate the Constitution and circumvent Congress? Nearly every Executive Order he has issued was outside of the parameters of Executive Orders and actually altered law.

    My hope is that the new Congress will hold this maniac in check.
    And lets hope that this new congress will do exactly as they said "defund" Obama's UNCONSTITUTIONAL amnesty plan. However, knowing the GOP and their pathetic history, I suspect they won't hold his power in check as the Constitution requires them to do because they will be worried about the politics of it all and how it will play in the 2016 elections. But we still have some “Hope for a Change”

  2. Careful, FreeThinke!

    OctoMommy will call the police on you. Transmitting a verbal criticism over the internet could be considered a harassing threat to the quivering pus-filled left nuts over at progressive erections.

    Has anyone else noticed they never talk about progressivism? They are eternally focused on what their hated enemies on the right are up to.

    It's a fixation bordering on creepy and maniacal. We may need to call in Dr. Phil for an intervention.

    You may think that's funny, but if you had been anally violated by the pasty faced ink squirter like I have, you would not be joking.

    Just want you to know I tried your recipe for Mexican-style Octopus Salad. My guests were repelled, and found excuses to leave early, but I thought it was delicious, so did my husband Herman. So, he and I ate the whole thing all by ourselves. Herman just loved it, said i reminded him of kishke. Of course my Herman loves everything I put on the table. He'd better!

  8. You're a devil, FT, but a nice one. I'm not much for poetry, as you must know by now, but these acrostics you invent are clever and often very amusing.

  10. Even though it breaks our House Rules, I'll let Jimm's malodorous droppings remain, because in that remark alone all may see The Spirit of the Left perfectly represented in all its snotty, belligerent, mendacious, uncharitable, maledictive, proudly inglorious character.

    Good work, Jimm!

  17. As usual your illustrations are terrific. Always right for whatever subject you feature. How can you always find pictures that suit your needs so well, FT? I guess that's a talent in itself, isn't i?

    Always enjoy your blog when I can find time to look in. Say well. We need you.

  19. Is there any way we could make our policy statement clearer?

    If you don't understand it, that's a clear sign your vocabulary is weak and needs enrichment, so go use any of the more-than thirty dictionaries available at Alpha Dictionary - Free Online Dictionary - a fabulous resource.

  21. Who looks like Karl Rove, Jersey?

    If you give me his name and address, I'll send him a sympathy card.

    If you were referring to the cephalopod in question, I can tell you he doesn't look like Karl Rove. He looks more like an admixture of Shylock, Harpo Marx, Rod Steiger, Leon Trotsky, and Alan Dershowitz -- with TENTACLES.

  22. Hey, lets face it, all you people should know better. Liberalism is built on lies and deceit, thus octopi, is known to be a lying PUTZ, as well as a Obama butt-kissing wise ass.

    I'm sorry, but I thought this part was much too kind. I know the party you refer to very well, and he doesn't deserve this generous evaluation:

    ‘Tis but his claim to erudition that saves his
    Sour soul from condign persecution.
    Smart Alecs of his ilk avoid close shaves, as
    Others of his kind shirk retribution.


    Rhyming "saves his" with "shaves, as" was pretty good, though. If you were one of my students, I'd give you an A-.

  25. Thank you, that was the most incisive, cogent description of an octopus or leeches yet! Well done, my sentiments EXACTLY!

  26. It’s true that people have hang-ups about eating certain kinds of seafood. Wether it’s for health reasons, turn-offs or something else, but as they say, “to each his own”. But I got a disgusting story about a women when who some cooked squid that may equate to your blog. This lady ate some (what she thought was delicious looking ) Octopus which was alive and still had its tentacles intact, and then she felt a "pricking and foreign-body sensation" in her mouth, so she spat it out.
    But she was too late. Pods of squid semen had already shot into her mouth, impregnating the mucous membranes of her tongue, cheek, and gums. Doctors later removed the "twelve small, white spindle-shaped, bug-like organisms" called spermatophores and also identified a sperm sack. They didn't have eyes or little baby tentacles or anything, but still, the products of animal sperm were living inside her mouth. Believe it or not, this is a Japanese and Korean delicacy known as odori don. It's literally a live squid or octopus dumped on your plate and served to you, its legs still thrashing around in the sauce. they remove the thing's brain before they slap it onto the plate. They're not monsters. But by the time it hits your table, it was alive so recently that it still flaps its tentacles around and tries to escape when you pour soy sauce over it. What's happening here, besides your own nightmares being harvested and served to you on a platter, horrible? Yes, but much like the Liberals who are hateful and nasty individuals.. And don't get me started on the topic of Progressive nincompoops, these moronic individuals are beneath contempt. I personally think that most liberals are racist because they can't seem to leave race out of anything. They see everything in terms of race. What is up with that? And how can they defend the actions of the Obama administration? The IRS picking on a group of citizens that it doesn't agree with? If the roles were reversed I would be extremely upset with the IRS for the sheer fact that what they did was WRONG. Period. I truly do not understand. I have only been interested in politics for the last few years and am saddened by how vicious and nasty the left treats anyone who is not in lockstep agreement with them. Especially the one know as Octopussy. who is constantly frothing at the mouth like a Mad Dog. I for one am disgusted by the behavior of people like this. As for the Libertarian, I find that little putrid individual to be a harmless little twerp who is very entertaining,....

  32. Skillful Manor, eh?

    What a droll name for a landed estate! Is that a family name or a description of the original owner?

    In what part of the UK could we find the place? I'd love to visit someday, if the manor house is open to the public.

  37. "I tried the Octopus Salad, and I puked from the smell and it LEFT a very BAD Taste in my mouth."

    I'm sorry, Cockroach, but you probably didn't prepare the octopus properly or cook it long enough. One must be extremely precise in following the directions.

    Octopus must stew, bake or broil for a very long time before it loses all traces of the poison that permeates its system.

    Done right it really is a gastronomic delight.
