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.”
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.
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.
Speculation is active as to whether of not Dump will serve out his term. In my opinion there is NO WAY. At some point this horrible monster will have to recognize that unless he resigns he will likely end up in jail. If not jail he will see his precious "brand" destroyed forever leaving his useless witless children without any means of earning a living. Of course for many of us we hope the end is imminent and can't come soon enough. However, it may take to the end of the year. Be patient. His days are numbered
