Almost like they planned it that way….

To have John McCain, cast the decisive vote to defeat yet another incredibly shitty bill, that most of the GOP Senators hoped would never become law. I know I was surprised by McCain’s sudden finding of a spine-given that he lacked one for about 9 years, ever since he was bamboozled by the right wing […]

The signposts on the road to hell.

As I mentioned in the previous post, I am a big fan of Dr. Timothy Snyder’s book, On Tyranny, 20 Lessons from the 20th Century. The book is an easy read-and very much necessary in the age of the Orange Menace. His 20 lessons are coming true before our eyes. The entire list can be […]

Eleven Tweets that sum it all up.

And explain quite clearly why Donald Trump is a danger to the Republic and the people who follow him are the same as the Germans in the 1930’s who worked for and enabled the foundations of unspeakable crimes.  Your fixation on crap lke Benghazi, e-mails and the rest of the trivial bullshit ignores the key […]

There is such a thing as decorum.

I once again, marvel at the stupidity of the pro-gun community. The bodies from the Santa Barbara are hardly even cold-and yet we have to hear this: “Your dead kids don’t trump my Constitutional rights.” – Joe the Plumber (yea, that guy) to the families of the Isla Vista shooting victims, Somehow, the word “douchebag” does […]

The Zombie Eyed Granny Starver, hard at work

Yesterday afternoon, the Devil's apprentice himself, Paul Ryan ( Worthless Cocksucker-WI) and his Democratic counterpart Mrs Landingham (H/t to Charles Pierce for the term) announced they had reached a budget deal. Some deal. Rather than go for the straightforward approach of repealing the rest of the Bush tax cuts and lifting the cap on Social […]

"My country is a horror show."

David Simon, speaking at a forum in Sydney Australia gave a very perceptive rundown about what ails the land of my birth. He points out very eloquently a theme that the Pope and others have been highlighting recently, namely that income inequality is dangerous  and if we don't do something about it, we are risking […]

It is so close to my current situation, it hurts.

As the totally screwed up merger continues:   While I was back in Shopping Mall, I learned what I long suspected, the little weasel who engineered this abomination had been hard at work over the past six months planting ideas with all the wrong people. This, after he lied to all of us and said he […]

Where is Kent Brockman when you need him?

Well we met our new "team mates" yesterday. As I expected it, it did not go well:   It was an interesting exercise in surrealism. Our current boss was basically pre-empted by the GS-15 who seeks to enslave replace him. That issue has not been determined yet-but this guy acted like it had. Then he […]

They went slowly mad……

Well it looks like the mess may be over-for a while. Our Galtian overlords have finally had to cave in and recognize that they were only going to get one thing:   The exercise was pointless from the word go. Sane people recognized that. They also recognize how we cannot persist to allow this wreckless […]

I'm tired of hearing about the children……

In this debt fight nonsense, the deficit scolds continue to say "its for the children". Whenever I hear that what I want to reply is something profane-and with good reason. The children lose no matter what, if the cruel and inhumane policy prescriptions are carried out. What the arrogant and pompous preachers of the deficit […]

The Vandals are hard at work.

Congress imposed a government shutdown? Fuck you, pay me. Oh, had a fire? Fuck you, pay me. The place got hit by lightning? Fuck you, pay me.   ( All posts will start with this until the shutdown is over).   I awoke this morning at my usual time and I started to get up. I've got to get to […]

What he said.

Congress imposed a government shutdown? Fuck you, pay me. Oh, had a fire? Fuck you, pay me. The place got hit by lightning? Fuck you, pay me.   ( All posts will start with this until the shutdown is over).   The President summed up the issues at play in this shutdown pretty well yesterday. Its worth listening to his […]
