Dear Trumpkins…….

You think that Donald is your answer. As I have pointed out earlier-we all understand your desire for revenge, what we don't understand is how you are so oblivious to the fact that it will hurt you. You want to repeal Obamacare? Fine-remember that a GOP Congress will not propose anything other than band aids and when you get cancer in 2-5 years, your insurance company will be free to drop you like a hot potato.

But most of you are the types if ignorant souls who really believe you are immune to everything. As one who has had bad things happen to him-trust me, it can and it will. But live in your ignorance anyway. It will not save you in the end.

The only question remaining is, where will America's Palestine be and who will rebuild the remananents of the nation? All the good places are taken.

Funeral for a friend

I suffered the loss of a good friend last night. The United Kingdom ( May 1, 1707-June 23rd, 2016), America's mother country, the source of US traditions and many of our values , a country that holds a special place in my heart, committed suicide last night. It was 409 years old. The corpse is still twitching but the damage has been done. That the death was completely avoidable makes this loss of a once great nation particularly tragic.

I stayed up watching the returns start to come in, and I went to bed cautiously optimistic. I awoke at 4AM, looked at my phone and knew my once good friend was doomed. I got up and went downstairs to watch the BBC and ITV coverage. At 6:20 AM, they pronounced the patient dead.

By that time the S.O. had seen 6% of her Japanese savings vanish. The pound was down almost 8% and Dow Jones futures were indicating a monumental meltdown at the open.

And there on the TV was the obnoxious face of Nigel Farage. For those who don't know him, he is the leader of the UKIP party and the darling of fucking idiots American Conservatives for his Trumpian rhetoric.

V.I.K.I.: You are making a mistake. My logic is undeniable.

Detective Del Spooner: You have so got to die.

As the morning unfolded, the hits just kept on coming. The founder of this monstrosity of a referendum, David Cameron, announced he would be resigning as Prime Minister. That's what happens when you bet the farm on a completely unnecessary political evolution and then lose.

The FTSE was dropping like a stone.

As was the DAX, and all the other European markets. The sickness even affected the bond markets, with German and Spanish bonds taking a particular beating. I have no doubt US bond markets are getting equally squeezed.

Later on in the day, Spain hinted it wants to re-open the settled issue of Gibraltar. 

And of course, like a bad dream, who shows up to piss on everyone's parade?  That's right, the vulgar talking yam himself. As he chortled over all the money he was going to make shorting stocks and fucking over his new employees at Turnberry, he displayed the particular brand of ignorance that has marked his campaign to date.

 

 

 

This is typical for the vulgar yam. Fuckhead.

As I type this, the American stock market is down 622 points. As predicted this a disaster. And this is just the beginning.

The crass opportunists have stepped to the microphone. Sinn Fein is making noises about how Northern Ireland would be better off in the Irish Republic and the Scottish leadership is making noise about how binding referendums are not so binding after all. 

A couple of other observations:

1) The stark differences in demographics were disturbing. Interviews with older voters and younger voters make it clear that UK voters have this in common with US voters. Older people love to vote to screw young people.

The United Kingdom has voted to leave the European Union, 52 percent to 48 percent.

I am broken by this result. As a young person, I cannot help but feel betrayed. In fact, it’s somewhat hard not to take it a little bit personally.

Let’s look at the voter demographics. The "Leave" vote was overwhelmingly carried by those over the age of 65, whereas 72 percent of those who were aged 18 to 24 voted to "Remain." Why does this matter? Surely, in a referendum, every vote is equal, and the will of the people carries regardless of the demographic?

Well, there is some truth to that. But that doesn’t mean every UK voter will suffer the same consequences.

The process of the UK leaving the European Union would not be complete until late 2018 at the very earliest, assuming Article 50 of the Lisbon Treaty is triggered when a new prime minister is appointed in the autumn of this year. Even then, that’s just the basic settlement — trade deals and movement regulations could take decades to hammer out.

 

Please click on the link and look at the demographics. The old screwed the young-who it appears, are smarter than their elders.

2) British expats living in Europe are going to get screwed at the drive through.

3) Finally, every right wing Jackass like Geert Wilders, Marine Le Pen, the leaders of Alternativ fur Deutschland and the rest are already spouting their particular racist brand of bullshit asking for their own referendums. 71 years of peace in Europe? Can't have that. Crank up the Enola Gay-we are on our way to the Maginot Line! Retake Silesia! Party like its 1932 brother!

And then there is the damage to the US. I find the drivel being spouted by your average American moron conservative really disturbing . If I hear one more person talk about "taking their country back", I am going to have to strangle someone. Back to where assholes?

I've seen where you want to take the country back to-and I want no part of it. Please go die in a fire.

Brexit is a disaster. If you do not understand that, you can leave now. We have nothing else to talk about.

Leave it to the Financial Times ( a good conservative news outlet-something your basic Breitbart fucking nitwit reader seems unable to understand):

That pretty well sums it up. Stupidity triumphed over common sense. My advice is to start drinking heavily with some now even more expensive Scotch. Its going to be a long year.

Blind squirrels and acorns

Do sometimes get together.

If you have been coming here for a decent interval you know that I hold both the National Review and the Weekly Standard in utter contempt. I read them to find out how the ill informed voter thinks and to find satire worthy materials. But every so often they produce something praise-worthy and they deserve credit where it is due.

So lets all take a gander at William "The Bloody" Kristol's gem of Shakespere quotes about He, Trump. Enjoy the acorn.

But as to the competition: I asked, "What lines of Shakespeare best characterize Donald Trump?" I stipulated that you'd get no credit for comparing Trump's campaign to "a tale/Told by an idiot, full of sound and fury,/Signifying nothing." (Macbeth Act V Scene v) That one was just too obvious.

What did you all come up with? Lots of apt Shakespearean descriptions for Trump's campaign or the man himself. I feel I've done a good deed in enticing many of you back to Shakespeare (if you'd ever been away). In any case, here are a few apt and brief contributions (after all, "brevity is the soul of wit").

Regarding the outcome of New York's primary (and probably tomorrow's contests as well):

"Lord, what fools these mortals be!" (A Midsummer Night's Dream Act 3 Scene ii)

Regarding Trump's disparagement of John McCain and other POW's:

"He jests at scars that never felt a wound." (Romeo and Juliet Act II Scene ii)

Regarding Trump himself:

"An infinite and endless liar, an hourly promise breaker, the owner of no one good quality." (All's Well That Ends Well Act III Scene vi)

And:

"The empty vessel makes the greatest sound." (Henry V, Act IV Scene iv)

And:

"Masters, do not forget to specify, when time and place shall serve, that I am an ass." (Much Ado About Nothing Act V Scene i)

And regarding the appropriate response to Trump:

"Never, never, never, never, never!" (King Lear V iii)

Pour yourself a drink.

And watch ALL of this interview with Jon Stewart. It is awesome-especially his well crafted dissection of the talking yam, Donald Trump, and the worthless souls who support him.

In fact pour yourself two drinks-and watch the whole thing:

Overcome by events

I was going to write a nice non-political post tonight. But tomorrow is Super Tuesday (AKA SEC Primary) and I thought I would remind all present of something they need to know:

IF YOU LIVE IN ONE OF THOSE STATES, GET OFF YOUR ASS AND VOTE!

While I think it matters who you vote for, be sure you get out to vote.

Otherwise, this is who will be deciding your party's nominee for you:

gSJTR4f

I'm sure she has redeeming qualities and all, but it would appear political savvy is not her strong suit.

And if you need more convincing, this broadcast from John Oliver should seal the deal for you. I preempted my other post just to make sure you see it. It is worth your time.

 

 

"Donald Trump is America's back mole"

 

Now go vote!
