    • Two Lessons from France’s Yellow Vest Protests
      So, the Yellow Vests in France have French President Macron scared, and he has given to some of their demands, including raising the monthly minimum wage and getting rid of the diesel tax which sparked the original protests. Joe Penney at the Intercept has a good overview of the current state of play, which I […]

The Almighty

Donald believes that he could run for office in Europe. Like president of Europe? I don’t know.

Also, he thinks he would have made a good general.

Plus, he won’t sign six bipartisan spending bills that have nothing to do with border security. Chuck Schumer asked him repeatedly why he won’t sign them and allow most of the furloughed government workers to pay their bills. Donald doesn’t have a good answer.

But he will continue to demand worship from his followers. And we can count on him to hurt people for no reason in order to get what he wants. Or hurt them for petty reasons just because he can. Or pardon who he wants. Or lift sanctions because who’s going to stop him?

He kind of reminds me of Richard Dawkins description of the Old Testament God:

 “The God of the Old Testament is arguably the most unpleasant character in all fiction: jealous and proud of it; a petty, unjust, unforgiving control-freak; a vindictive, bloodthirsty ethnic cleanser; a misogynistic, homophobic, racist, infanticidal, genocidal, filicidal, pestilential, megalomaniacal, sadomasochistic, capriciously malevolent bully.”

No wonder the evangelical “Christians” will follow him to the end of the world.

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

Today, the Democrats take back the House and swear in a whole lotta wimminz. Also, Pelosi is starting to be a burr in Trump’s side already. And the media is getting push back on the “likeability” factor it applies almost exclusively to female candidates. I don’t think this is going to work this time around.

Short of making deals in the Capitol’s ladies bathroom, expect to see some changes made. Maybe casual Fridays? Interrupting male speakers more often? Not really giving AF whether they are nice, smiling and likeable when they’re trying to get work done? I don’t know. Let’s watch, shall we?

Go with throttle up.
