Carpetbagger (er’ ah’ … baggage?) … a person perceived as an unscrupulous opportunist, usually a politician, from a foreign geography and culture
For decades we have endured the shenanigans of political, Goodfella carpetbaggers … pretenders … pretending to know Utah’s best interests, best values and politics best. This onslaught of foreign Goodfellows from East and West have stuck their noses too far under our tents for far too long … perhaps not illegal but certainly alien Carpetbaggers, Carpetbaggage, Carpetbraggers and Carpetgarbage all.
, rapping, blinging, Taekwondo kicking, boxing, wrestling … flying hot air balloons and living in chicken coops … bullying, badgering and berating. Dumping on us … from Southern California Utah Attorney General Sean Reyes … from Chicago State Senator Curt Bramble … from Pittsburgh U.S. Senator Orrin Hatch and Utah Representative Greg Hughes … from Detroit MI, Boston MA, Belmont MA, Wolfeboro NH, Park City UT, La Jolla, CA U.S. Senator Mitt Romney. Sure, sure they really do know us and are always there for us … um’ well sorta’ … like snakes in the grass are there for us too. Yet we invariably fall for their slick schtick as they bloviate, insinuate, ingratiate and weasel … snuffling their way under the tent and into the good graces of the predominant Utah religion. No matter a short or even a lifetime of religious tenure and commitment, the fact and mere act of belonging to The LDS Church automatically and unquestionably endows them … conveys on them … facade and front … opportunities and affinities prepackaged with values that by craft and cunning they easily and readily exploit.
They’re a tough bunch of bully boy Carpetbraggers … gleefully self promoting … flexing, preening, posturing and genuflecting.
Utah’s slavering, salivating and pandering Press suck it up and churn it out with gusto bent on glorifying …
So who gives a good barnyard heap of “stuff” about some political hot-shot’s “tough”?
As for “tough” … Real tough is serving one’s country and coming back home in a box to family and friends … coming back with “stuff” missing like arms and legs and fingers and toes … coming back with head, heart, and soul confused, screwed and scrambled.
Last week’s funeral of a Special Forces’ brother and the many funerals preceding it … and all the other funerals anticipated thereafter … weigh more and more heavily day by day by day.
Get a life Carpetbraggers. Ditch the bad boy persona! We’re not impressed. Really tough you aren’t!
Tough is NOT using the pulpit to bully the public and one’s peers. Tough is what it takes to win without consciously being on the “take.”
Years of “On the Take” and some Carpetgarbage numbers follow …
Contributions totaling $786,507 found at Follow the Money to “Greg Hughes’ Take” from those “Who Own Him.”Hughes
And they’re slick … really slick … more Carpetgarbage!
We borrowed a menu from “Accountability Utah.” It’s called the “Official Speak Guide.” There are eight little mind scams that our Carpetgarbage Goodfellas run on us.

Send in the Utah Legislators … Clowns!
Senator “Opioid Orrin” Hatch caught with his pants down … Clown!
Orrin Hatch caught on the take for soliciting a $10,000,000 loan from The Bank of Credit and Commerce International (BCCI) … at the time the most corrupt bank in the history of the World. Hatch went on from then and there for decades continuing and enlarging his take from Big Pharma and others who would walk through his door with cash in hand.
Blinging Bishop … Rapp’ Rambo … Utah Attorney General Sean Reyes … a Utah Top10Taker … Clown!
Lying … Clown!
