    • George Bush Is Responsible For Innumerable Murders and Rapes
      The rehabilitation of George W Bush because he says some bad things about Trump needs to stop. Not only was Bush responsible for Iraq,  he is responsible for everything that happened during it, and everything that comes comes from it. That includes ISIS, which absent the Iraq invasion, DOES NOT HAPPEN. Every rape, every murder, […]

The Horror, The Horror

Good job on calling your local GOP asshole, everyone. We have a temporary reprieve until after the July 4th holiday. During that time, McConnell and his obscenely wealthy donors, will apply the thumbscrews to Susan Collins, Dean Heller and a couple other holdouts. Will they turn before the rest of the country figures out what the hell is in this bill? Because if what I heard last night is any indication, the average working class American is shocked and royally pissed off that the Republicans are planning to deprive children of health insurance just because their parents don’t work for a company that can cover them. 

That sentiment is going to spread among anyone who is not a 27 year old white male who presumably will never get sick or injured while he’s driving over the speed limit and weaving between cars on the New Jersey turnpike. 

Shock, horror, dismay, a deep sense of betrayal. 

Yup. 

And if Donald Trump signs that bill or tries to strong arm Senators to pass The Law Governing the Whipping of Poor Sick Children, people are  not going to love him. No they are not.

Of course, he will blame them for being too stupid to be rich, which will bring a whole new set of people who will not love him. And probably a tweet storm. 

But in any case, we have a week. Don’t let up. Spread the word. 

*******************************

The new job is working out nicely. The work is analytical and technical. It appeals to the girl geek in me. Call me Gigi. I’m not forced to dress up every morning and there’s a coffee shop around the corner that makes latte just the way I like it with plenty of hot foamy skim milk. The salary will never make me rich but I can live on it. All in all, it’s the best job I’ve had since my site closed in 2011. 

Time to save up for the next layoff. 😉

  1. Congrats, RD! I’m very happy for you! Whoo hoo!!!

    I’m reading today that Trump is losing/has lost his wealthy donors, and that the GOP doesn’t expect (or maybe even really want) to pass it, they’re just trying to show their supporters that they are trying and the bad widdle Dems are keeping them from MAGA.

    Also saw this, and it left me in tears this morning (I hope it posts):

    https://embed.theguardian.com/embed/video/us-news/video/2017/jun/28/trump-on-the-phone-to-irish-pm-tells-reporter-she-has-a-nice-smile-on-her-face-video

    WTF? All over the foreign press, not so much domestic.

    • Jeez, is nothing sacred???
      I’ll bet he did that on purpose just to show he can get away with it and all his henchmen are ok with it.

      He’s giving the green light to any smarmy creepy guy who wants to show who’s in charge.

      Ugh. How the hell did we get here?

      • What if she hadn’t complied? He thinks he is charming by doing that, you know, when you are a star and all that — he must think he is on the set of Apprentice when he would say outrageous things to women.

  2. I will post this here only because it is evidence. Don’t know who the reporter is.

  3. wanted to comment on this for days. did you all see that Kushner guy finally speak in the last week or so? He is so lack luster. But most of all he sounded so so delicate and he has looked so so delicate… what is with that?
