Well, If You Like Corruption, Hatred, & Disease, Boy Have I Got a Blog For You

Y?know, just the other day I was thinking that the one thing this shitshow was missing was the traumatizing soundscape of the modern battlefield, so a big fat thumbs up to whoever added the all-night fireworks shows to the simulation; it?s that kind of loving attention to detail that makes life truly unbearable here in Hell. Well, that and, of course, the news:

I think we?ve lost track of which Friday Night Massacre we?re on now. XVIII? IX? X: Massacre in Space? That franchise is totally out of control; I thought it was a mistake when they added the masculine toilet guy to the cast, and it?s been all downhill from there. Anyway, Redactor General William Barr tried to fire Geoffrey Berman, the U.S. attorney overseeing several investigations into the Shart Cabal, by announcing Berman had resigned, only Berman went, ?shit that?s news to me, Jowls,? so there was a whole THING. In the end, Berman agreed to leave, but Barr didn?t get to install his preferred stooges, so...yay? American democracy gets to live to fight another day, I guess? I?ll take my good news where I can find it these days....


Four more years of this maniac could end humanity

It took a meteor to destroy the dinosaurs.

It may take nothing more than a malicious buffoon to destroy humanity.

Yeah, he has control of the nuclear "button." But that's just one way he can end us all....


Want To Vote In November? Get In Line Now

The only way Trump can win is by MASSIVE VOTER SUPPRESSION. MASSIVE!

There will be one voting machine for ever 20 rural people, and one for every 10,000 urban / minority voters.

They know they can do it. They have been doing it for years....

An Opinion About Lincoln Project Ads - - Why So Effective..

....The reason these ads are so effective is that the people who make them, know that Trump is the worst president ever. These film makers want to save this country that they love. The film makers want these ads to be as close to "perfect" as possible. It doesn't look like it, but they spend a lot of time on each ad to make it just right. The Lincoln Project knows what is at stake in November and so do we. We must save the U.S.A., and these ads will help. We need all the help we can get. Thank You Lincoln Project for your ads.


If we disband the NHC and stop using weather radar can we avoid a hurricane season?

I mean if we don't acknowledge, name them, or see them out there they don't exist.

I could use a pass from storms this year.


No One Is Talking About The Horrible Things Trump Has Done Because Of New Horrible Things

He says and does every single day.

The media does suck, but they simply can't keep up. There is no end to the crimes, lies, obstruction, and theft going on.

Them kids are still lost, in cages somewhere too.

We are being too nice.

Republicans Are A Disease.


None of this even pretends to make sense anymore

President Trump tells CBN that President Obama committed ?treason? and says he?s looking forward to Justice Department inquiries into the Obama administration. ?Let?s see what they come up with.? Quick. Look. Over there. Lets talk about Obama and nonsense. Lets not talk about how the economy is tanked, the streets are full of zommers protesting injustice, Barr is about to be investigated by Congress for yuge abuse of power, 40 million unemployed, oh and 120k dead and a pandemic running wild in the red wall of the south. Lets talk about the last President committing treason for some made up bollocks. In some ways this is funny because it is so absurd. But, truly, other than the most damned of the cultist being distracted by this, at this point in the Trump horror show does he really think that this will gain traction? It may distract as an amusing aside for a hot minute, but after that people and are living through the chaos of 2020, and spinning and gaslighting and trying to distract the electorate is not going to work. Not right now when people are hurting as much as they are. He is not even pretending to make sense at this point. It is insulting.


He's Furious...What Else Is New?

Every day he's furious about something and we're supposed to care. And Princess Pushy and her husband are furious too now because of the way Sat. worked out. THese stealing, cheating, lying, grifters who have blood pouring off their hands, have everything they could want and they spend their days furious....
