Trump is still an idiot…

Well….still not feeling right after the events of the past couple of days but I felt I had to talk about the village idiot trump and his trip to Puerto Rico. What a godawful mess this guy is…not a damn thing about the suffering of the people, just more and more of how great of a job he is doing…people are still dying and this asshole can only think about one thing, himself, and to make it even worse, he goes on to crack a joke about the effect of the hurricane on the federal budget…this guy is just not right in the head…veering off into his F-35 story again, which is a huge lie by the way. I am tired of this crap…when can we make this prick go away? Repubs? Impeach…

I blame the NRA…

Well…another morning another 50 people dead on the altar of gun worship in this country….450 injured and more will probably die and I blame the NRA for it’s years of stoking fear, it’s years of buying politicians so that rational, public supported gun control couldn’t happen…and now we have this…we have a white, domestic terrorist acting on what the NRA has been calling for for years…that people will have to die to protect their bastardized understanding of the 2nd amendment….I knew that this would happen…after Sandy Hook with 30+ children dead and nothing happened to control these weapons, I knew that the NRA had won…when there have been 273 mass shootings this year alone and nothing is done, I knew the NRA had won….and this guy had 10 automatic rifles with huge magazines that are perfectly legal in Nevada…something the NRA purchased politicians think is just fine…and now there is a bill being pushed by the NRA that would allow people to buy silencers…if this had been passed and this guy had them for his guns, how many more would have died? A hundred…two hundred? The only way this murderer was found was it was night and people could see the muzzle flashes…something a silencer also prevents…there is one thing that every mass killing has in common…guns….now is the time to tell these NRA purchased politicians that we have had enough…that sensible gun control is needed now…and throw the bums out if they won’t listen….one last thing…after the last two videos that the NRA put out hinting that liberals should be killed, the NRA should be labeled the terrorist organization that it is…and be put out of business now….

The greatest logistical challenge ever?

Well…if you had any question that the entire trump administration is filled with incompetent idiots, you just have to listen to trump’s FEMA administrator making excuses for their failure to plan for the devastation in Puerto Rico and their continued failure to deliver aid to keep people alive…this idiot said this today: “…this is the most logistically challenging event the US has ever seen…”  Now, I’ve been around a while so maybe I’m working from experience that these idiots don’t have but I can name much more challenging events…how does the D-Day invasion sound, or WWII in the Pacific?  Do you remember the Berlin Airlift? Or building all the war materiel for WWII? Or Landing a damn man on the moon? I could go on and on pointing out the ridiculousness of these idiots…it may be the most challenging event for some no experience, no talent hack that should never have the job, but the most challenging ever? Not even close…impeach…

Trump is even worse than you thought…

Well…I was trying to not write about the idiot trump to keep my karma clean today, but what he did this morning requires a response since it shows that trump is even worse than you thought. With his thoroughly inept response to the devastation in Puerto Rico and his flippant self congratulation that he was doing “a great job…everyone’s saying it” the mayor of San Juan, PR had had enough and called him out that no where near enough was being done and people are dying because trump is off golfing instead of doing his job…as you could expect, the thin skinned narcissist  again made everything about him and attacked Mayor Cruz saying that she must have been told by the Dems to be nasty to him and that she was showing poor leadership and that Puerto Ricans just “want everything done for them” using the old racist trope of the lazy Puerto Rican….and you know the topper of this is this tough, brave and competent woman called him out and trump can’t stand that…he just can’t stand when people point out and shout that he is a stupid, racist, incompetent, fraud….so he has to project onto everyone his flaws…and it takes everyone to get to all of trumps flaws….now repubs, is this enough? Is leaving 3.5 million American citizens to fend for themselves just because he’s a lazy, racist asshole enough? Nope, not for the modern repubs it’s not….impeach…

Econ 101…

Well…the repubs hell bent on destroying the economy with more tax cuts for the rich and corporations, I thought it is time to go back and talk a little Econ 101. First, lets get to the nonsense that cutting taxes on the rich will trickle down and benefit everyone else…IT DOESN’T WORK….all of times this has been tried and everywhere it’s been tried, all it did was balloon the deficit or make sure that massive cuts to education, roads, and everything else had to happen…just take a look at the mess in Kansas when all of these stupid ideas were tried over the past two years and it cratered the economy there…so now doing the same thing to the whole country will make it work? Second, corporations have so much cash on hand that they just don’t know what to do with it, so why would a tax cut make them add workers? It is DEMAND that makes businesses expand and, with the lag in growth of consumer income and the resultant lack of demand, you could cut business taxes to zero and they would still not add any more jobs….and that is a fact, it’s not liberal bias, or the fake news that the modern repubs live on…it is a fact…but, as we know, facts don’t mean anything to these idiots…and they would never let facts get in the way of legislating their ideology….geez…

This is sickening…part two….

Well…if the overt racism from the idiot trump wasn’t clear enough for you before, here’s just one more bit of proof….not sure if you’ve heard of the Jones Act…a law passed in the 20′s that prevents foreign ships moving cargo between US ports….and a law that was waved for Texas and Florida when Harvey and Irma hit them…but now, when there are brown skinned people hurting, the idiot comes up with an excuse for not waiving the law….that shipping jobs will be lost if he waives the law….so, white people involved…waive away, brown people involved, can’t waive…it will cost jobs…is THIS enough, repubs? Is this sickening bullshit of not taking care of ALL American citizens enough? Nope, probably not…still…

This is sickening…

Well…the idiot in chief went on tv yesterday and the result was pretty predictable…anytime he talked about Puerto Rico it was all about him…how he was doing such a good job in the relief attempts, how he was the most caring *president ever…that everything was fine and going to plan…well, I’ve got news for you, idiot…it’s NOT fine, no where near “fine”…the idiot spoke in the afternoon and last night on Rachael’s show, the mayor of San Jaun was on crying….that nothing is happening…people are still without food, water, or medical supplies….that children are dying in hospitals that have run out of generator fuel….and this is just the tip of the suffering…people are drinking out of polluted streams and there is still no food for the majority of the country and trump is not doing a damn thing except picking fights with NFL players…..it is still so bad that private citizens are making their private planes available to fly medical supplies into and cancer patients out so they can come to the states for chemotherapy…both Pitbull and Mark Cuban have sent their planes and pilots for the relief effort but the largest military in the world is still waiting on the idiot trump to allow them to help. Is this enough, republicans? Isn’t this sickening behavior enough for you to remove this asshole? Nope, probably not…again…

Trump is letting Puerto Rico die…

Well…it would be one thing if it was only incompetence that is keeping trump and his minions from doing anything to help Puerto Rico….but we have the worst kind of combination that is going to kill many, many American citizens there…the combination of incompetence, racism and indifference…and this is proven by the statement from the WH that they will be putting forward a proposal on aid to PR in the first or maybe the second week of October…who knows? By then the children in the children’s hospital there will be dead from lack of power, water, and food…and hundreds of people on dialysis will be dead from the same…and hundreds, if not thousands of people will starve to death from this callous indifference to their plight from our so-called president…the bottom line is he just doesn’t give a damn about brown skinned people…no matter if they are citizens or not…and the people he put in charge of the government feel the same damn way….what a bunch of worthless assholes….what do you say now repubs? Is this blatant disregard for his responsibilities enough for you to impeach? Nope, probably not…

Thanks Dale Jr.

Well…with the widespread protests against endemic racism throughout sports yesterday, and the fascist response to them by Richard Petty and Richard Childress, NASCAR team owners….threatening to fire anyone that works for them if they express their constitutional rights under the first amendment…it was heartening to read the statement put out twitter yesterday by Dale Earnhardt Jr….I’ve always respected Dale Jr. for his thoughtfulness and honesty, and yesterday, that respect grew when he tweeted this: “All Americans R granted rights to peaceful protests…Those who make peaceful revolution impossible will make violent revolution inevitable-JFK”  Now, those are some powerful thoughts and I am sure that the troglodytes that infest the NASCAR community will just frickin hate them….Dale Jr. understands that injustice needs to be addressed and it is the right of all of us to do so in our own way…taking a knee during the anthem, or writing a little blog here, or hitting the streets when another person of color is murdered by police…it is what our country was founded on and, when the government won’t do anything to fix these problems, it is our right and responsibility to do what we can….thanks Dale….

Now we know why….

Well….if you wondered why there is such a rush by the repubs to take health insurance away from 30 million people and kill thousands, now we know….three people…yep three people told them to do it or they will shut off the money taps that keep getting these idiots elected. And, I’ll bet you know who two of them are…yep, the Koch brothers…two people who have done more to ruin this country than anyone else and who are now going to buy the repeal of the ACA and kill thousands of people just so they won’t have to pay taxes. Now, I hope you folks out there understand how sick this is….repealing a law that has given people across this country peace of mind and saved the lives of countless thousands just to give billionaires a tax cut….I know I rant about this stuff almost every day but damn…how do people get to be this evil?
