    • Interview Part 2: Politics Thru Climate Change
      This second excerpt from my interview is more interesting and longer. This is the second clip from my interview with Ian Welsh (Ian blogs at ianwelsh.net). For this segment, we went on a wild ride discussing the big picture mess that is US politics and society more broadly. I asked Ian what might happen if […]

Isn’t it funny how it all goes to hell at once??

The American citizens in the Country of Puerto Rico are starting to die from dirty water.

DOH! Didnt see that coming.

Meanwhile, California wine country, home to a $50 BILLION industry is still burning. There are now 23 dead. But you know, California is a blue state and they have just passed a bill protecting sanctuary cities and Donald has a base who want him to beat the living crap crack down on immigrants so… you know, there’s that…

(For more on the crisis in California, follow Lady V’s twitter account @ChaliceGarden.)

Child Donald is hating everyone in the White House. They’re all scrambling to keep him from going to the “YOU’RE NOT THE BOSS OF ME!!” phase, to be followed by “I WANT TO DO IT ALL BY MYSELF!!”

(this is when most parents put plugs in their ears, traffic cones around the screaming toddler on the floor and patiently wait it out. This kid is going to be trickier. Well, for one thing, he’s 6’2”, overweight, ugly and has found the matches. Note to Melania: stop feeding him carrots)

Today, he is threatening to make healthcare cheaper and better. Since this isn’t going to happen without it being prohibitively more expensive and way less better for people with pre-existing conditions, not to mention 9 million children whose existing healthcare is going away very, very rapidly, it can only mean that Donald cares only about young white males between the ages of 18-35. The rest of us can die, die, die because he hates all of us.

But it’s not enough to ruin Americans’ lives. He’s about to bring down the world economy with his rash, ill-informed and badly planned destruction of NAFTA. (You might hate it but destroying it is the equivalent of Brexit and who wants to see that happen?)

Where are the smart ass dwarf and Essence of Nightshade when we need them??

Ooo, Joffrey insults a veteran. Can we get John McCain to play Tywin? Pretty please??
