The New Director

In other news, Trump budget director and Edgar-suit wearing lizard, Mick Mulvaney, says the government shouldn't cover the cost of diabetes. I remember when Republicans attacked Michelle Obama for encouraging people to eat better.

Meanwhile, the State Department's top diplomat in the Middle East, Stuart Jones, today publicly accused Syria's Assad regime of covering up mass executions by burning the bodies. This was first reported months ago by Amnesty International.

The State Department said it believed that about 50 detainees a day are being hanged at Saydnaya military prison, about 45 minutes north of Damascus. Many of the bodies, it said, are then burned in the crematorium.

“We believe that the building of a crematorium is an effort to cover up the extent of mass murders taking place,” said Stuart Jones, the top U.S. diplomat for the Middle East, in accusing the Syrian government of sinking “to a new level of depravity.”

Finally, Republicans in North Carolina voted at 3 a.m. on Saturday morning to cut education in democratic districts to punish democrats for playing hardball on the state's budget. Governor Cooper wouldn't sign this and I assume it would be unconstitutional anyway.

Republicans seem to have a fetish for unconstitutional policy.

I got a Pink Floyd vibe from this.

    It seems to me that the GOP decided that democracy is too hard so dictatorships are in vogue now.

    • You know, you are on to something. I think that many Trump voters did decide this very thing. It’s too hard, it takes too long so we’ll vote for someone who will do things so differently he’ll either destroy the system (that supposedly wasn’t working for them) or he’ll at least piss off everyone else in power. They essentially threw a fit, stomped the ball flat and trounced off the playground because they didn’t like the rules of the game anymore. If they can’t have the America they want, then no one can have America.

    Crematoriums to burn bodies of people they’ve killed. And where have we seen that before?
