Haven’t seen this in a while…

Well….look, we on the left do one thing really good and that is bitch and complain about just about everything in politics…you remember the “berniebros” who were willing to burn down the party if Bernie Sanders didn’t get the nomination and the “100 black men” who  posted a letter saying that they would sit out the election and Biden would lose if he didn’t pick a black woman for VP? And lets not get started about the hard left “progressives” who basically called Joe the same as trump and said they won’t vote because of it…we have always been the party of diversity of opinion and that sometimes erupts into “pie fights” as it’s called over on DK…but, yesterday it seems like the entire party was unified in its praise of Biden picking Kamala Harris as his VP….the good comments came from all across the spectrum that is represented by our party…from the left, the middle, and the right and they all seemed to be ready to go to work to elect the Biden/Harris ticket…okay, it’s only one day but to have no sniping at all is something I haven’t seen in  quite a while and does make me hopeful that everyone has gotten the point that they can’t get what policies they champion until trump is gone…and they at least will get the chance to make their cases with Biden…but we all need to work together to make that happen…cripes, I hope we can just this once….

It’s Kamala Harris….

Well…there has been tons of speculation on which of the supremely qualified candidates Joe Biden would pick for his VP and it was just announced it is Kamala Harris. I can get behind this choice even though Liz Warren was my first choice…Kamala is smart, tough, and accomplished and will absolutely destroy Mike Pence in the debates….and it’s about time that a woman was picked…it will make this country better when she is elected and will show little girls that yes, there is nothing they can’t strive for and achieve…and it will highlight even more that the dems are the party of the future and she will help drag Joe into that future…damn, I’m excited….

Now it’s college football players…

Well…cripes, are the repubs willing to kill everyone to get the idiot trump re-elected? First it was we old folks, then it was workers, then it was teachers and kids, and now it’s college football players. When many of the big conference players started to express reservations about this fall’s season and the haphazard preparations to protect them from death, and with most of the mid conferences already canceling their seasons and moving them to the spring, the usual suspects like idiot boy, and if you can believe it Jim Jordan…you know, the Jim Jordan who looked the other way while hundreds of athletes were sexually abused while he was a coach at Ohio State? And now he shows again that he really never cared a damn about these athletes…the only thing he and trump and the rest of the ghouls who are calling for these kids to be sacrificed to build a facade of normalcy is for trump’s re-election…how will they be able to claim that everything is just hunky dory if college football is canceled?  Look at the mess that is major league baseball where many, many players have tested positive for the virus as they are thrown back into large groups and some teams have had to suspend their part of the season since so may are infected. In major league soccer, some teams were even booted out of the tournament since they had so many infected players….and don’t use Europe as an example of sports coming back…they had a coordinated virus response that fought the virus while trump and his sychophants here are still letting the virus burn through this country and are doing nothing to stop it. so, I support these athletes who fear for their health…one dead player is too large a price to pay just for trump…hell, a dead mouse is too big a price to pay for trump…

97,000 children infected…

Well…amid all of the lies coming out of the idiot in chief that children are “virtually immune” to the coronavirus and that means there is no danger from sending them back to school, news reports out today blow that lie into pieces…over the past two weeks, more than 97,000 children have been diagnosed with the virus, and that is before the wholesale opening of in person school across the country. Now, it does appear that in most cases, the infection is less severe in children, but they do still die from it…and we still don’t know what if the long term effects are the same as in adults where there have been cardio vascular, neurological,  respiratory, and many other long term effects even after the patient is discharged from the hospital….so what would that do to a child who is infected? Are there learning disabilities or other long term consequences? At this point, no one really knows but do we want to run a real time experiment on our children where an entire generation is put at risk? That is what the repubs want just to help get idiot boy elected again…if I were a parent with children in school, this is the last thing I would allow to happen to my children…and I certainly wouldn’t vote for any politician that supported this, especially without funding any mitigation measures that would help keep the kids safe….the repubs are just a bunch of damn ogres…

Stay away from Harley riders…

Well…if we didn’t already know that most Harley riders are maga asshats, just take a look at what is happening this week in Sturgis SD where a hundred thousand or more have gathered for the annual motorcycle rallye…take a look at the photos folks…packed shoulder to shoulder, bars open, and not a mask in sight…you want to see the next virus hotspot? Here it is….and every damn one of these morons spout off that they don’t care if they get the virus, their “freedom” will protect them…and many of them are still lying their asses off parroting the idiot trump that the virus is a “hoax” and only effects “demorats” so they are safe. Now, here is the wholesale stupidity that got trump into office…but I wonder how these idiot are going to feel when they take the virus home and kill other family members? Bye, bye grandma and some of their kids are probably going to die, too but that is an acceptable price to pay for “freedumb” if you listen to the talking points that are woven through every interview…and they are even berating the news people covering the virus spreading party since they are wearing masks and are not stupid…oh, well…I should be happy that this will thin out the herd of stupidity that infests this country…but, I’m not an asshole like these folks and I care that Americans are going to die just so these assholes can “own the libs” as they are so fond of saying….what abject stupidity…

Bye, bye NRA…

Well…the second court action today makes me smile a lot, too, when it was announced this morning that NY AG James filed suit to dissolve the NRA due to overwhelming fraud by the officers of the nonprofit where over 60 million dollars were stolen between 2015 and 2018…how do you feel about your donations now maga NRA members? How does it feel that the only thing your money went for is lining Wayne LaPierre’s pockets? It’s been well known and documented in many news stories that the NRA was just a slush fund for grift and the repubs and even for funneling Russian money into our political campaigns…again, these are state charges which are out of reach of trump and this is the same process that shut down and dissolved idiot boy’s supposed charity a couple of years ago…so a two for one day and I think I’ll be smiling all day and waiting for the Duetche Bank shoes to drop….

A good day in the courts…

Well…there is a reason to smile today with two court actions that were revealed today and over the weekend….the first on was the biggie, to me anyway, when it was reported that Duetsche Bank has already complied with a subpoena to turn over all of the idiot boy’s records and everything is in the hands of the Vance and I’m sure they will be shared with the attorney general of NY state for any state charges that could come from them…one important thing that comes from that is it reinforces the subpoena that the supreme court just ruled is enforceable against trump and his accounting firm, Mazars…and Vance is already making the argument in court that the Mazars records are necessary to compare with those from Duetsche to see if idiot boy and his kids committed tax and bank fraud by inflating and deflating the value of assets to get more loans and to keep from paying taxes…as we all know they did. Let’s remember, these are state charges that are out of the reach of a pardon or from meddling by Bill Barr…so it does look like the criminal in chief is going to have another “first” after his name…the first former president to go to prison after he is out of office…and I am gleeful about that and the fact that his grifter children are going down with him…okay, this one is long enough…I’ll talk about the other case in a new one in a few minutes…

“It is what it is”

Well….hey everybody in the US, if you didn’t know that the idiot trump is a psychopath, just listen to his response about the thousand people still dying every damn day by his incompetence and stupidity…when idiot boy tried to assert that deaths from the virus are going way, way down since he is doing a great job, the interviewer pressed him that there are still over a thousand people a day dying…and after trying to bluster his way through with more lies, the interviewer wouldn’t let him and trump’s response to the deaths was “it is was it is”…dismissing even the idea that a thousand Americans dying every day is something he should be concerned with…that is the definition of a psychopath and yet the repubs do nothing….and now with idiot boy’s push to re-open the schools across the country even with the virus raging through 36 states that are still seeing increases in cases and deaths, the psychopathic behavior continues along with the lies he continues to spout that children are “immune” to the virus so it’s just fine to send them to school…no matter that these kids will bring that virus home to their families and kill many of them…trump just doesn’t care. It is just sick that the repub standard of behavior has changed so much that they support a murderer in the WH…what about the tan suit Obama wore…impeach him! God I hate every damn one of them…

He can’t even pronounce Yosemite…

Well…we have all seen the decline of the idiot trump over the past few years from moron to abject stupidity but the past couple of days has been the worst I’ve ever seen…first he looked and argued like a 2 year old in an interview with Axios, trying to make them “understand” something that is not true thoughout the interview and waving some “specially prepared” charts (read dumbed down) at the interviewer and just couldn’t get it through his thick skull that yes, the US has more cases of the virus than any other country and the most deaths while he couldn’t grasp that at all and just went on and on repeating a false talking  point…just like a two year old…but today it got even worse, if you can imagine that….in a speech about something, and with the idiot boy you can never be sure what the hell he’s talking about, he continuously mispronounced Yosemite…as in Yosemite National Park…calling it “yo semite” which I think means “hey Jewish person” in slang….and he appeared to be sounding it out as he haltingly read off the prompter…cripes, I knew how to pronounce that when I was 3 years old since Yosemite Sam was a character on the Bugs Bunny cartoons that I loved as a kid…but how the hell do you get to be 74 years old in the US and not know how to pronounce one of our most famous national parks? Didn’t any of his handlers know to pull him aside and tell him it’s Yosemite and not yo semite? Just another instance where the repubs have made the US the laughingstock of the world by backing this dementia addled moron and leaving him in office….what more damage is this idiot going to do in the next 100 days?

Isn’t this a crime against humanity?

Well…you know the asshole and chief and his toady son in law were bad but cripes, listen to this one. During the first explosion of the coronavirus in the early part of the year, the idiot in chief put kushner in charge of getting testing  and supplies organized and sent to states with the worst outbreaks….but noting ever happened and kushner’s group disbanded without doing a damn thing other than stealing PPE from the states and hiding it somewhere since he repeatedly said it was “currency” and belonged to them. The worst part is trump and kushner actually talked about it and decided to do nothing since, at that time, it was only “blue” states that were affected and he didn’t give a damn about people who didn’t vote for him…and this decision killed a hundred thousand people and let millions more get sick. Now, if this had been done by any other despot who deliberately let his people die for political purposes, in a saner time the UN and the leader of the US government would have called for and investigation with subsequent arrest for crimes against humanity and trial in the Hague. So why not now? Why aren’t Kushner and trump right now being charged with these crimes? I think it’s something that these assholes need to be concerned with since any member country can force these charges and after trump loses, he won’t be going to any of his foreign golf courses since they can scoop him up just like they did for Pinochet a couple of decades ago. And you can bet there won’t be any cry to save him by anyone that comes in with Biden…and he can’t pardon his way out of this one….trump really should hope he dies in office, his life is going to be hell after he is out…and the rest of the grifters are going down, too…you’re next Bill Barr….
