I am, unfortunately, old enough to remember the cold war. And here’s what I remember most; In the event of a nuclear attack, You’re fucked. Any public official who pretends that there are government contingencies for a nuclear attack are at the best “full of shit,” and at the worst, “full of shit and they don’t know they are full of shit.” As Trump dangerously escalates his sophomoric name-calling with Kim, we can only hope that the North Korean president is a skilled actor who can see that our president is sociopathic freak. And hope he displays remarkable restraint toward a man who might only know restraint when it’s in the form of a straightjacket.
I understand that Trump’s initial plan is working. He’s losing on both Russia and Health Care, so he bloats out new racist blather, hoping it will distract us from his treasonous acts and political failure. Who would do that? We are approaching a point where serious people need to consider these two words; President Pence.
Whether it’s lies about access, coverage, pre-existing conditions, or even having read the very shit they lie about, the Affordable Care Act, the GOPenises, (thanks Jimmy) are close to pulling a fast one over the very Americans who voted them in. Irony isn’t dead, it’s back with a vengeance.
The Washington Post
The right-wing version of the Rat Pack, Milo, Coulter and now Ben Shapiro, were all abuzz at the speculation of Berkeley, once the home of “free speech,” imploding upon their visits. And at first, there were violent outbursts, (although some evidence pointed to right-wing provocateurs) but Shapiro’s visit caused nothing more than a whimper, disappointing the salivating Hannitys, Limbaughs, and the rest of the mouth-breathing GOP.
I love when “Liberal” is used as a pejorative. If by “liberal” you mean “get it the fuck right?” Well, I’m guilty. The real problem with the “non-liberal” press is the real narrative is too difficult to sell to their audience. But that’s condescending, and untrue.
The Daily Beast
Holy Shit. They just asked, “Will liberals try to remove 9/11 memorials the same way they tried to remove confederate statues?” Doocy and his couch lizards are to journalism what a pearl necklace is to jewelry.
Rush Limbaugh, who once again railed that the science of climate change is a hoax, and that Irma’s fury was being exaggerated to perpetuate a lie, fled Florida Thursday to escape the imaginary 185 mph winds. The convicted pill-popping dough boy got on his private jet and flew above the millions of bleary-eyed ditto heads seeking gas, water and higher ground. Authorities reported no sightings of irony, cause it is, after all, Florida.
Rasmussen has consistently reported Trump’s approval ratings 10-15% higher than anyone who’s not Russian or related to him. Here’s a number for ya Razzmussin, your credibility is 0%.
Trump believes that most Americans are confused by the deceptively difficult tax rules and regulations. And He’s right. But what these Trump supporters don’t understand is that this is difficulty by design and that very few of them will ever benefit from the Esher-esque tax laws. That’s because they were written by people like Trump, and they service the rich.
Mnuchin mum on Tubman…
Of course. Trump is a racist shit-heel who loves Andrew Jackson’s brutal military campaigns against Indians, Andrew Jackson recommended that troops systematically kill Indian women and children after massacres in order to complete the extermination.
On the other hand, Harriet Tubman was an American hero who led thousands of slaves to freedom.
