Trump Twittering

I never find Trump's tweets amusing. Despite the fact he never wanted the job of POTUS, and has never made any effort to man-up and do the job he managed to get for himself, and lost the popular vote, he is still POTUS and his childish, dishonest, grade school bully tweets embarrass and endanger the nation.




Frankly, anyone "proud" to be a Trump supporter is an embarrassment to his (or her) family, community and nation.

And "Trump supporters" don't get to call themselves Christians.  "Trump supporters" piss on every single lesson Jesus taught. Every single one.

Seriously.

Musical Monday - Shatter Me - Lindsey Stirling ft Lzzy Hale

So, I finally broke down and bought the Lindsey Stirling album "Shatter Me," because it turns out it has the title song (vid below) and two others that I really like - "Roundtable Rival" and "Master of Tides."  I'll let you know if I fall in love with any of the other songs on the album.

Plus, as I've mentioned before (and before that), the whole "classical strings plus hard rock" is totally my thing.




Oh, and as I've mentioned before, I've got that whole grrl crush thing on Lzzy Hale.  Go figure, since - wait for it - as I've mentioned before, I'm not actually into women :-)

Right. So, there you go. Musical Monday.  Because, music is a fucking beautiful art form.

Mike Pence thinks men are dogs and Muslims have good ideas

Vice President of the United States of America Mike Pence thinks men are dogs and Muslims have great ideas.

So, here's the deal: Vice President Pence won't have a meal with a woman without his wife present, because you know, men only think women are good for sex and without his wife there to chaperone him, poor Mike might be unable to control his urges to fall in bed with her, if she so much as looks like a woman, instead of looking like a man.

Listen, Mike, you're kind of pathetic. Did you know many Muslims hold this same view? Well done!

Also, Mike won't attend any functions where alcohol is served. Maybe it's because his lack of self-control might lead him to drink, and you know, really fail to control his urges regarding women and he might grope someone. You know, people kind of frown on groping, so probably a good thing he choose stay away.

Or, hey, maybe I'm being unfair to poor Mike and his Evangelical beliefs. Maybe he just avoids events with alcohol, because he thinks alcohol is the root of all evil. That belief would put him in good company. There are at least a billion people in the world who avoid events where alcohol is served for exactly this reason: they're called Muslims.

You know, Mr Vice-President of the United States, this would all be resolved if you just grew up, accepted that women are people, that men really can control their own urges better than dogs can, and that grown-ups accept responsibility for their own actions.

America the Shameful

Saw an advert during the Golden Globes for yet-another "Your family dies because you can't afford the prescription drugs," television series.  Only in America. No, really. Every other fucking civilized country has national healthcare and people don't die because they can't afford medicine. And the GOP just spent 2017 fucking America harder by cutting CHIP and raiding Medicare/Medicaid/Social Security AGAIN! What a fucking embarrassment we are.

Non-Violent Protest as a way to fuck the oligarchs

Insane conspiracy theory? No, actually not. History shows that tyrants, bullies and rich oligarchs do pay fake protesters, because they don't give a shit about ethics, they only care about power at any cost.

But, you know, even if that's "just libtard conspiracy bullshit," this is good advice. If any assholes at any protest do start trouble, then the overworked, wanna-use-our-military-hardware cops will know exactly who needs to be fucked over, instead of arresting innocent people. 

So, there.

Stop being obtuse - the GOP are worse than the DNC

If you still think "both parties are the same," then you're being an obtuse idiot.

The GOP have fallen off the "far-right" cliff a long time ago, and stopped giving a fuck about the rule of law, and care only about power for the sake of power, and money for the sake of money.

This leaves the DNC as the "rat bag" of every halfway sane and decent person who wants to enter politics.

Among other things, that means the criminal types go GOP, and the "not a criminal" types go DNC.

Are both parties backed by the ultra wealthy elitists? Duh, yes. The ultra-wealthy elitists are opportunists who will buy any politician they can. But the most buyable, and most corrupt, have gone GOP today.

As long as the GOP exists, "both parties are the same" remains a lie that apathists and cynics tell themselves to justify their apathy and cynicism.
