They always make life worse….

Well…not sure if I have seen this in the news but this thought popped into my head on the bike today….why do the repubs always make life worse? Raising taxes on the middle class to give tax breaks to the rich makes life worse for most of the country…don’t they care? Gutting the EPA and letting big polluters get away with pushing the costs of their polluting onto the rest of us makes life worse for most of the country….don’t they care? Taking healthcare away from 13 million people makes life worse for those people….don’t they care? Letting the idiot trump destroy our standing in the world with his idiocy makes life worse for everyone in the world…don’t they care? You and I know the answer to that…they only care about their rich donors and rewarding them for keeping the money taps open….and they don’t give a damn that less than 20% of the country supports their tax scheme that is full of lies….but that is the modern repub for you folks….they really don’t care about you…even the stupid in this country that continue to vote these liars into office….they are the ones who will be hurt the most by this giveaway to the rich….but they are too stupid to understand that….impeach….

Wasn’t going to come back…

Well….I wasn’t going to come back for another one today but I am bored again so I thought I’d come back here for one more….have to work on the top on the car tomorrow…noticed that some more of the thread by the back window has failed and I have to fix it before winter…not really sure how I’ll do it but that’s for tomorrow…just watched Keith Olbermann’s last “The Resistance” that he did for GQ on twitter…he seems convinced that trump is gone soon with Mike Flynn’s lawyer working on a deal for his testimony against the idiot…it can’t happen too soon for me…and I will buy the house a round when they perp walk idiot boy out of his ugly, gaudy, golf course….this is going to be really ugly with the 30% of the country that are so stupid they still support the criminal in chief….and any changes that trump was allowed to make after his fraudulent election should be erased…shouldn’t we get a do-over after this travesty? I think once Mueller is done, the repubs will be exposed for the traitors they are since Ryan and McConnell both took Russian money for the RNC…clearly against the law and they should both go…at least there is one thing that can keep us sane…at the most, this nightmare will last only one more year…after the 2018 elections, if the trend of the past month or so holds, we’ll control at least the House and maybe even the senate….and the full force of sanity will be returned….impeach…

Person of the year?

Well…we all know that trump lies as much as he breathes…but, who would continue to lie about something that can easily be fact checked? This week, the idiot trump tweeted out that he had refused to be named time magazine’s Person of the Year since time had said he only “probably” would be named….trying to make it appear that Time had called him…but, there is just one tiny little problem with that…none of it happened..Time tweeted out a few hours later that they never talked to the idiot at all…and that the person is never told about it until the selection is made public in the early part of December. Now, let’s call trump’s delusion what it is…he is frickin mentally ill…and the media will never call him on it…every reporter should ask him about this every time he leaves his golf club where he is “working”…and keep it up until he explodes….impeach…

Flynn has flipped….

Well…was going to write about his one yesterday when the news came out but I was overdosed on turkey and just didn’t feel like it….as was reported by the NYT yesterday, Mike Flynn’s lawyers have stopped talking to the idiot trump’s lawyers and there is only one reason that that would happen…Flynn is flipping on trump and cutting a deal to keep himself and his son out of prison for the rest of their lives….I am just going to savor that for a while….and revel in the irony that the idiot that led the chants of “lock her up” at the repub convention is probably going to do some jail time and Hillary has been proven to be innocent of all of the right wing smear charges that floated around during the election….Mueller is coming for trump and has him…and there may be bombshells by the end of the year and I can’t wait to see the charges against the idiot….get the popcorn ready….impeach….

Still searching….

Well….I am still searching for today’s topic but nothing is grabbing me right now…I think I’m having outrage fatigue there are so many bad things going on…think about having your internet go away? Or going to have to pay 3 times more for it? That’s going to happen next week once the idiot trump and his cronies gut net neutrality…you know, the rule in place now that make all ISP’s treat all internet traffic the same…the new rules will allow the ISP’s to do whatever the hell they want…block a competitor’s websites? Yep…block a competitor’s browser from being used on their service? Yep…charge extra for internet traffic that is now all available to everyone? Yep…throttle down sites that they don’t agree with? Yep….kill competitors before they can challenge the big guys like ATT and Verizon? Yep…all of that and even more will happen with the new rules that give the rich companies exactly what they paid for when they bought themselves the repub party…oh, I guess I did have a topic…sometimes they sneak up on me….impeach…

Some thoughts on power…

Well…given the effort from the idiot trump to push more coal power across the US and the world, I thought I’d relate a new study that I just read about the cost of power. Done by a company called Lazard every year and called the levelized cost of energy analysis, this study deals with the relative costs for generating power from the major types; coal, nuclear, wind, solar, and natural gas….and the results this year are stunning….the cost of renewable power build and operation has fallen below the cost to just operate coal and nuclear plants…and that means that the installations are essentially free…all of those wind farms and solar cells that are sprouting across the world are essentially free to build and the electricity they generate are about half the cost of traditional methods….so maybe even the idiot’s interference in the generating market to push coal will be derailed by the simple economics of the power market…after all, who would pay twice the price just to keep a few coal miners working? And, the jobs in solar and wind pay much more and are much less dangerous than mining….just some thoughts….

Tax cuts only for the rich…

Well…just wanted to do a short one on the tax “reform” bill that is being jammed through Congress by the repubs as we speak…never mind that there have been no hearings in either the House or Senate on the effects of this crap…something that has never happened before and is all you really need to know..that the repubs are trying to hide this disaster that is specifically being done to reward their donors who have threatened to close the money taps if they don’t get huge tax cuts. And that is the problem here…the rich are the only ones that actually get a cut…anyone who makes less than 75K a year will get a tax increase…yep, you and I and most of the country is going to see their taxes go up just to give more to the rich…just like here in Michigan where taxes were raised on retirees to give tax cuts to corporations who were supposed to create jobs with it but it never happened….and that is the same nonsense that the repubs are using to justify this giveaway to the rich…that it will magically create jobs…even when damn near every ceo asked said that the tax cut wouldn’t do a thing to create jobs…but it would give them a nice pay raise. When can we get back to actual facts being used to set policy instead of ideology? When we vote the repubs out…

Had to do this one…

Well…if you didn’t already know it, the idiot trump today showed just how despicable he really is….after some American college basketball players were arrested in China for shoplifting, the idiot trump took credit for getting them out when he really had nothing to do with it….but the worst part was in trump’s tweets today where he raged that he should have left them in jail…. and all because one of the player’s father didn’t kiss trump’s ass enough…yep, our so called president thin skin didn’t get the praise he thought he should so he acts like the 4 year old he is and thinks American citizens should pay by going back to a Chinese jail. This idiot is just not right in the head….by any objective measure, or just observation trump is not right…is this one enough for you repubs? Or, do we have to wait for the indictments? Impeach….

Just no topics today…

Well…I know, I know….there are topics galore out there but I just can’t get outraged about most of it and, as you know, that fuels a lot of what I do here….there have been some things going on that are irritating the hell out of me…like the tax plan that gives tax cuts to the rich and the hell with everyone else, or the assaulter in chief commenting on Al Franken but staying silent on Roy Moore….or the 250,000 gallon oil spill from one of Keystone’s pipelines…something the idiot in chief said would never happen as he approved the next leaker for Keystone…..a good thing was the PM of New Zealand sharing that the entire world laughs whenever they have to talk to trump….and that a fox poll has Doug Jones ahead of Roy Moore…in Alabama? Cripes, things just may be changing for the better….impeach…

Now they’re going after elephants…

Well…we all know that the selfish assholes that infest the trump administration are only out for themselves…to see how they can use their government positions for personal gain or for gain for the idiot trumps…and now they are going after elephants for no reason other than the trump boys like to shoot them. In the Obama administration, it was recognized that something had to be done about the declining populations of African elephants that were being decimated by licensed hunters and poachers….and one of the things that was done was a ban on importation of any trophies taken from these elephants. But now, the idiot trump is now rescinding that rule…which is being done just for the idiot trump boys since they whined to daddy that they couldn’t cut up the elephants they shot for sport and bring back their “trophies”. As we know more and more about elephants and their intelligence and devotion others in their families, it is unconscionable that trump and his cronies don’t give a damn about destroying them just to have “fun”….but, what else do you expect from this crime family? Impeach…
