To Iranian President Rouhani

NEVER, EVER LISTEN TO THE DERANGED BUFFOON WE HAVE “LEADING” THE UNITED STATES OR YOU WILL SUFFER CONSEQUENCES THE LIKES OF WHICH FEW THROUGHOUT HISTORY HAVE EVER SUFFERED BEFORE. SIDE EFFECTS MAY INCLUDE DELUSIONS OF GRANDEUR, DIARRHEA OF THE MOUTH, SHRINKING OF THE GENITALS, EXPANSION OF THE MOUTH, AND REFUSAL OF THE ENTIRE REST OF THE CIVILIZED WORLD TO EVER TRUST YOU OR TAKE YOU SERIOUSLY AGAIN. WE ARE NO LONGER A COUNTRY RULED BY A SANE PERSON, BUT BY ONE WHO GOES OFF ON DRUNKEN AND DERANGED RANTS SPREADING DEMENTED WORDS OF VIOLENCE & DEATH. BE CAUTIOUS OR YOU’LL END UP A SPINELESS TOADIE LIKE MITCH McCONNELL OR PAUL RYAN!

When Will The GOP Congress Do Its Job?

When will the GOP Congress do its job?

When will the GOP Congress do its job?

When will the GOP Congress do its job?

The framers of the Constitution feared EXACTLY this type of problem, a tyrant, a executive out of control or being bribed or for whatever reason putting his personal wealth and well-being above that of the country’s. That’s why they put the impeachment provisions in.

Checks and balances. Get a wackadoodle or evil or insane or senile President (or one who’s all of the above, in our case) and the Congress can remove him.

Except this Congress is doing **NOTHING**. We can’t even get them to say anything bad about Trump. The only one who’s actually criticizing is McCain and he’s seriously ill with terminal brain cancer.

McConnell? He’s complicit, cooperating, worked for a year before Obama left office, even before Trump got nominated or got into the race, to delay and steal the Supreme Court seat that Obama should have filled.

Ryan? A spineless wimp who won’t say a bad word about Trump even while outright, open, textbook treason is being committed on national television.

So, the other GOP members of Congress will step up and speak out, right? They’ll put pressure on McConnell and Ryan and Trump, right?

*crickets*

WHAT THE FUCK IS GOING ON HERE?

Keep repeating it until we get some sort of an answer that makes even a minimal amount of sense.

When will the GOP Congress do its job?

There’s Been A Theme For The Last Two Days

As I said yesterday, I do most of my social media interactions these days on Twitter (@momdude56) and FaceBook.

There’s been a theme (and variations!) for the past two days. Since I already went to the effort of writing all of that, and just to make it clear where I stand, here’s a sample:

To my astonishment and eternal disappointment, not one of these slime balls has bothered to block me yet.

I must be doing it wrong.

Treason’s Greetings!

Amazing that it’s been over a year since I’ve posted here – it’s been a really, busy, hectic, crazed, sorta batshit crazy year. (If you care, you can catch up over here.)

It’s not like I’ve been ignoring the toxic dumpster fire that’s been US politics and the steady disintegration of our social fabric – in fact, I’ve been up to my eyeballs in it almost every day. But most of that’s been on Twitter (@momdude56) or FaceBook.

The biggest recurring theme for the past two years or more with the Mango Menace and his band of evil minions has been, “Have we hit bottom yet?” And no matter how bad things have gotten (attacks on the First Amendment and press, ripping families apart at the border and putting infants in prison, stealing yet another Supreme Court seat, racism, sexism, alienating allies, starting trade wars, and above all, the lies, lies, lies, lies, and more lies!) there’s always been tomorrow, when things have, in fact, gotten worse.

But today…

You know that trope where there’s an auction going on and they’re building tension by having our two protagonists bet $100, then $110, then $120, then a pregnant pause before they go to $130. Followed by someone who you forgot about in the first fifteen minutes of the show shouting, “$1,000,000!”

Today’s Helsinki news conference was like that. In the race to see how low he can go, Trump today moved the bar down through the Earth’s crust straight into the lithosphere.

If CNN Wants Video Of White House Press Conferences…

The increasingly irrational and authoritarian regime of SCROTUS Trump has ended the traditional daily White House press conferences, and when they do bother to have one, they’ve now forbidden there to be audio or video recording or broadcasting.

Can’t make this shit up.

CNN “protested” this yesterday by sending in their courtroom artist to do sketches of the press conference. No doubt they they thought this was cute.

Some have asked why they don’t record and broadcast the press conference anyway and let the White House physically force them to turn off the cameras and to physically expel them from the grounds – then sue on First Amendment grounds all the way to the Supreme Court. Maybe NBC, ABC, CBS, Reuters, BBC, New York Times, Washington Post, LA Times, Chicago Tribune, London Times, and all of the other members of the legitimate journalistic media could join the protest. (Who’s missing from that list, and why, is left as an exercise to the reader.)

Nah, that will never happen. That requirement for integrity and courage always kills those sorts of deals.

So, if we want video and audio of the White House press conference, I suggest that CNN ask the Russian government for their recordings.

Still Here

I’ve not gone away, just working on several simultaneous deadlines from Hell and there just aren’t enough hours in the day. I figure anyone who’s relying on this site as a primary source of outrage really, really needs to get a Twitter account…

I’ll be back to bitch and whine as time becomes available, but with what little time I can spare to write, I’ll stay focused on my original site where my established audience is a bit larger.

You can go over there tonight and see pictures from the TrailCam on my roof where a pair of raccoons were making baby raccoons. I know they were successful because there’s a whole freakin’ crowd of raccoons up on my roof every night!

Watching a pair of fucking raccoons (see what I did there?) has got to be better for the psyche than listening to one more outraged old phart screaming about SCROTUS and his army of evil orc minions, does’t it?
