    • The Roots of Trump’s Policy of Separating Children from Parents
      So, you’ve all heard about this by now. It is, obviously, a terrible crime. And yeah, evil. It is an extension of Obama’s policy of holding families (without splitting them up, but still in terrible conditions). If you want to understand the link, read this Twitter thread. Thread: How did we get here? In 2015, […]

Begging for it. 

I had a couple of good essays bouncing around in my head. All week, I’ve been pocketing away articles from various sources about the root causes for why some people support Trump. I had one for the working class perspective, the women’s perspective and the 01%’s perpective, which I think is the most interesting of all because it’s becoming clear to me that the super wealthy aren’t motivated by the prospect of a tax cut. No, it’s something much more insidious and rapacious than that. I suspect it goes back almost a thousand years. 

And then there was the matter of Kris Kobach’s request for the personal identifying information for every voter in every state in the country, and PA’s governor Tom Wolf’s tart “go fuck yourself” letter in response was orgasmic. 

But none of that happened today. I admit that I get distracted, as I am likely to do these days. My mind is elsewhere. I can’t help it. But even if I had carried through with all of those proposed posts, they would have been drowned out by the cacophony stirred up by this:  

Dear Trump voters, you really don’t want to go down this road. There is a Rubicon and we are at it. Tolerance of this behavior is like taking one step over that Rubicon. You know, the river Julius Caesar had to cross to become Emperor? Defying the Republic and forcing Pompey to flee?  No?  Go download Rome on HBO. At least the sex will keep your attention. (Or not, as the case may be. There are a LOT of sex scenes.)

Anyway, it looks to me like Donald is begging for someone to declare him mentally unfit. He had only one job and all that. He should be allowed to resign and go play golf. This White House gig is over his head and his ratings are down. 

There are a lot of very bad things in store for all of us if he’s not forced to step down over this. Ok, sure, life isn’t going to be any better under Pence. But at least Pence is the devil we know. 

We can’t function effectively as a nation when a man child with this little self control thinks he’s an emperor. 

He needs a psych evaluation. Like, yesterday.

  1. Lol… Your previous 67 internet coup schemes failed at launch but *this time*! Remember when the electoral college voters were sure to go rogue? Memories.

    • SURE to go rogue?? I think you must have the wrong blog. They coulda, shoulda, woulda but in general, people are cowards.

      But this is going to come back to bite you in the ass if he’s not stopped now. Fun time is over. He’s a fucking train wreck.

      • Of course, Blizzy voted for the Leopards Eating Human Faces Party under the delusion that the leopards will only eat the faces of those uppity swarthy folks and uppity women and uppity poor folks. He doesn’t think the leopards will ever get around to eating his face.

    • Tsar Vladimir thanks Blizzy, and all the other Stupid White Folks of Real Murka, for their services. They make his achievement of his goals so much easier.

  2. How about this! Mueller, Mueller, anyone? He certainly has assembled a fantastic team of lawyers and there is enough shi*t to put this mfer in jail and take all his ill-gotten riches. It can’t happen soon enough. The hashtag trending is #25thAmendmentNow. But he should be tried and convicted.

    • Oh, brother. The DoJ is under the President – its head is part of his cabinet. It’s as if you guys really are living in that What-If-Hillary-Won fanfiction alternate reality.

      • Blizzy is correct…if Mueller and Co. put party before country, and if Putin’s minions in “our” Executive Branch can prevent all leaks of inconvenient information.

        Pair of fairly large “if”s there… 😈

        • I just ignore that mfer. We don’t have time to educate the imbeciles. They can have him. They are not big in numbers.

  3. I am mad at CNN because of their role in electing this buffoon. Even if those mfers are responsible for this catastrophe, we still have to defend them in the hopes they will do the right thing now.
