Having been personally impacted by Hurricane Sandy I remember my anger at the position of Texas Republicans in opposing federal aid for victims of the storm. Suddenly the conservative cretins in the Lone Star state are yelling and screaming for federal assistance in helping clean up the effects of Harvey. Funny how they have changed their tune concerning the role of the Feds. That horrible governor Greg Abbott was even concerning at one point having Texas split form the Union!!! Abbott is so skeptical of federal activities that he deployed the Texas State Guard in 2015 to monitor a U.S. military training exercise in the state. The move was seen as fanning conspiracy theories about the Obama Administration, including one that claimed the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) was creating political prisoner camps in Walmarts!!! But since Hurricane Harvey hit, Abbott has eagerly accepted the feds" support.
And then there is the biggest scumbag of them all – Ted Cruz, He bellowed and screamed from the floor of the Senate how Sandy relief was just a boondoggle for special interests. That claim was widely debunked but to this day he continues to make it as he lobbies for billions in Harvey relief. We all feel sorrow and empathy for the people who have been devastated by Hurricane Harvey but I have nothing but contempt for the conservative politicians in the state of Texas.
Irma is clearly a mega bitch. She managed to disrupt many lives in the Caribbean and Florida. Damage from the hurricane was minimized by storm surges that were far less than anticipated. In their haste to exploit disaster scenarios the media foretold of biblical flooding much like poor Houston who somehow got lost in the disaster du jour craze. Which brings me to the forecasters who were so off in their prognostications that it's laughable if not for the havoc created. First the East Coast then the West. Then carnage along the West Coast before mega disaster in Tampa Bay. As it turns out the worst of the storm seems to be taking place in Jacksonville which wasn't even mentioned over the weekend. My confidence in the weather services is basement level. And who can possibly not remember those relentless reporters who stood out there in 100 miles per hour winds. There was this little Hispanic girl on MSNBC that was fabulous. I'm sure SNL has a parody of her ready for the fall. So glad that my friends in Florida made it through with minimum disruptions. Also it was a time you could put on the TV without seeing much Dump. That was wonderful.
A new word has appeared in our lexicon thanks to the ravings of an increasingly rotund mad man at midnight. The "mot du jour" is COVFEFE. Finally Donald Trump has contributed to the language by adding a new word. Bravo. Now any reader after really dwelling on this strange happening could sleep soundly at night escapes me. I'm scared shitless. This is a flipped out bully roaming the halls of the White House late at night attempting to tweet something. And to boot he carries the nuclear code. He is beyond help. Even his wife didn't stay with him after her tour of world.
I never cared much for Kathy Griffin. I found her crass and vulgar and not very funny, However, the amount of crap she is taking from the right wing media over her image of holding Dump's bloody cut-off head is way over the top. First off it was meant as a joke. Clearly it was over the top but in today's world that is very relative. Perhaps all the howling right wing nuts have forgotten the images of Obama with a noose around his neck or the pictures of the Obama family as a bunch of chimps. Where was the outrage from Sean Hannity on those tasteless forays in political "humor"? Moreover, the real danger today is the lunatic in the White House. I believe he is a criminal on so many levels that it's hard to even mention them all. So please right wing idiots spare us the outrage over a silly picture.
For those of us hoping for an immediate end to Dump's presidency the events of the past few days have to be depressing. Increasingly it does not appear that the demented king's reign will end anytime soon. He will never resign and impeachment is really not an option at this time. Those of us in the resistance must stay strong until the 2008 mid-terms. If we come out and vote we can take back the House and then maybe we could talk impeachment. For now unless something nuts happens we are stuck.
Yesterday President Dump called his first full cabinet meeting which really looked like the bar scene in the original Star Wars. To begin the meeting each cabinet member paid tribute to the Great White Leader by singing his praises with many telling him it is truly a "blessing" to serve him. The most sugary praise came from VP Pence who appeared on the verge of tears in praising Herr Dump. Really folks try watching this crap on TV and try to refrain from wetting your pants. Oh and by the way, Dump is claiming to be the most productive presidents since FDR. No president ever got as much legislation passed so early on. Of course the problem with that statement is Dump has signed NO legislation. He and GOP controlled Congress have accomplished NADA. Yes. Dump is truly a blessing!!
The world is such a mess that I have decided to dedicate several of my old man farts today to various public figures. The first recipient will be Hillary Clinton. I hope this fart is replete with the Mexican food I ate last night. Hillary is a disgusting bitch sore loser. She is blaming everyone but her incompetent self for losing to the likes of Trump. And speaking of the devil he gets fart number two for once again showing the world that America elected a moron thug as president. He loves the attention. He is so sick. I won't waste keystrokes on commenting on the climate thing. Just insane. Finally, instead of a fart I want to dedicate my next bowel movement to Jared Kushner because he is the most repellent shit head in Trump world right now.
Long time readers of this blog are aware of my total contempt for Chris Christie who is known here as the FAT SLOB. Yesterday a poll was released that showed his approval rating in New Jersey is now at an all time low of 15%. More than 80% of Garden State voters disapprove of him I am proud to say that even when the Fat Slob was the toast of the town and had soaring approval numbers I said the man was a sleaze and a phony. I feel very vindicated. Indeed, the 15% approval is the lowest of any governor in the 50 states!!! The Fat Slob is so toxic even Dump didn't want any part of him in the most corrupt administration in history. Still the Fat Slob has seemingly avoided jail for his past actions in closing lanes of the GW Bridge. Instead, in true Fat Slob character he is letting his staff take the hits. The Fat Slob is a disgusting disgrace.
President Dump looks terrible these days. He's contorted and confused. He knows they are closing in on him and the focus of the investigations will center on money. Money is very important to Dump and so is his "rich guy" image that he flaunts to the unwashed masses of his base. You can be sure that with money in focus investigators will want to look at Dump's tax returns. You know the ones he has refused to release. I bet this has Dump in a real tizzy. I suspect the returns will show that Dump is worth far less than he claims and that he is in debt to Russian banks. Can't wait. Maybe he will have a stroke? We can only hope.
As we slide into summer there is a disease in the United States that threatens to totally wreck the country. The USA is now the laughing stock of the world. Ask anyone who travels abroad about what the world is saying. They think the USA has lost its mind and they are probably right. To be sure, President Dump is a threat to humanity. A lunatic in charge of the nuclear codes!! The man who cannot tell the truth. He lies with impunity and the really sad thing is that there are fools that believe in him. That rally last night in Iowa was surreal. Dump is their "dear leader". The Iowa rally was pure out of the fascist playbook. Dump declared once that he could be seen on tape shooting someone and his base would still love him. These supporters are brain dead and its disturbing to know we share the same country.
And speaking of brain dead who can be worse than the Democrats. They are losers pure and simple. Nancy Pelosi is a relic who should step down. Democrats need new leadership to replace the ancient regime of losers who supposedly speak for the party. They DO exist. I see them on TV all the time. Pelosi MUST GO. It's not enough to come close in elections. Democrats must prove they can win by standing for SOMETHING not just opposing Dump. This guy Ossoff down in Georgia was a horrible candidate. A better candidate could beaten that fat ugly woman.
Anyway folks things are pretty bleak. No use sugar coating it any longer. These could be the final days of our country. Happy Summer!!!
