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.
- Hillary Clinton will not go quietly. In an effort to squeeze every penny from her new book The Hillary Monster is making the talk show circuit. She is a disgusting sick woman. For those of us who truly hate her we must take delight in the fact that she is still delusional about the election loss. Goring around blaming everyone but herself. Why anyone would want to pay and buy a book written by her totally escapes me.
With every passing day I am convinced that when the historians write about these times they will refer to it as The Asshole Age. Every day we are subjected (if you choose to watch cable news) to listening to some of the most mentally deranged people on the planet outright LIE. They choose to create an alternative reality. With the able assist of the scum at FOX News Trump continues to sell his cult status to an ignorant grievance filled base. Really these people who continue to support him are real losers. They should get over it and go out and stop making excuses for failure. As for Dump we are in serious danger. Just take one look at the man and he is obviously deranged. He should not be allowed to go on this trip to Asia.
Well it will also be known as The Asshole Age because of the antics of people like that pitiful Houston Astro player who upon winning the world series proposes marriage to his girl friend on national TV. Slips a vulgar size rock on the finger. What the fuck was he gonna do if they lost?? We are all being played for fools. The sports media is now disgusting. They should focus more on the SPORT and not the personalities.
Of course the paramount figure in The Asshole Age will always be Donald J. Trump. Really folks did any of us really think it would be so bad???
It seems that former four star marine general and now chief of staff John Kelly believes that the American Civil War could have been averted with more compromise and that "history is history" and you can't change it. All this dribble is Kelly's effort to stoke racial tension over the taking down of Confederate Monuments. It has become an issue in the hotly contested Virginia Governors race. Kelly also in an interview refused to apologize to the Congresswoman that he slandered. Perhaps her being black was just added incentive. You know folks I'll be honest and say I don't like men like John Kelly one little bit. I don't care for all these military assholes prancing around the White House. And a final question for General Kelly: How do you compromise in holding another person a slave???
The just completed week proved without a doubt that President Dotard is a certified sociopath. This sub-human monster dismantled the ACA thereby denying poor people healthcare. He threatened to stop aid to Puerto Rico that is still reeling from hurricane Maria and is rapidly becoming a national disgrace. He decertified a nuclear arms agreement with Iran and generally acted the part of a deranged madman. Indeed, while I try not to look at him because it makes me sick a quick glance does reveal a completely deranged thing. Of all things just mentioned the Puerto Rico situation if the most disturbing since it showcases Dotard's inherent racism. If the people in Iowa who voted for this cretin were ravaged by disaster Dotard would be moving heaven and earth to help them. Iowa has about the same population of PR the difference being 95% of Iowa is white. A little history lesson for Dotard is in order. The US military invaded PR in 1898 and took over the island. In 1917 the people of PR were granted US citizenship just in time to be drafted for World War 1. Indeed Puerto Ricans have served in the armed forces in large numbers in every war since. They are citizens and are being ignored by this president in times of extreme need. In fact not only ignored but INSULTED. This sub-human creep has no shame. He is truly a sociopath.
I haven't been posting much lately because every time I sit at the keyboard words just fail me. How I can I properly convey to my readers my utter contempt of Trump. He is sub human and with the latest revelations of his erratic behavior he is a threat to the survival of the world. Senator Corker let the cat out of the bag in recent days. Trump is on target to start a nuclear war that will kill millions. He must be removed. Sure we would be left with that scumbag phony Pence but he would still be an improvement. At least he is not mentally deranged. And for all those people who voted to Trump I do have the words: FUCK YOU
Dotard Dump is destroying the country. I don't want to hear the pious crap of commentators that America is strong and can withstand the mentally deranged lunatic in the Oval Office. We as a country are on the precipice of a disaster. Dotard will very likely start a nuclear war that will kill millions and pollute the world for generations. Forget the NFL stuff and concentrate on the real danger. Dotard Dump has the nuclear code and in a fit of rage he will likely plunge the world into darkness. His unhinged performance on Friday night is truly symptomatic of a crazy person. He was likely set off by lack of sufficient medication and knowledge that Mueller is closing in and that his days are numbered. Still this may take too long and allow Dotard to push the button. He must be removed NOW by any means available. The lives of millions and the future of the planet are at stake. This cannot go on any longer!!!!
—Florida was never supposed to be prime real estate. Is the borrowed time running out? “Great article from Michael Grunwald in Politico Magazine: ‘A Requiem for Florida, the Paradise That Should Never Have Been.’ He cites some really interesting history, noting that descriptions in the 1830s called Florida a muggy, swampy hellhole of a place. The consensus among the soldiers was that the U.S. should just leave the area to the Indians and the mosquitoes; as one general put it, ‘could not wish them all a worse place.’ Or as one lieutenant complained: “Millions of money has been expended to gain this most barren, swampy, and good-for-nothing peninsula.” But someone saw a chance to make money, so of course money had to be made, right? It’s the American way. But now the consequences are becoming evident. Most South Floridians don’t think much about climate change, either, even though it’s creating more intense storms, even though the rising seas around Miami Beach now flood low-lying neighborhoods on sunny days during high tide. People tend not to think too much about existential threats to the places they live. They just live.”
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.
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!!!
