Sick and Tired

In other news, we now have a better idea why Ukrainian authorities want to question Paul Manafort. They believe he laundered money for the party of former Ukrainian president Viktor Yanukovych, a Putin stooge.

Meanwhile, the American gun industry has seen its sales numbers plummet now that the diabolical democrats are no longer coming to take their guns. There were 400,000 fewer background checks in February of this year compared to last year. Suckers.

Finally, a North Korean envoy told Reuters that his country will press forward with their program to develop a nuclear "pre-emptive first strike capability." This is not good. Tens of millions of people are already within their range in South Korea and Japan.

The conservative Americans for Prosperity, Club for Growth, and Heritage Foundation are key-voting NO on Trumpcare. So is AARP. If this passes on Thursday, it will be a squeaker decided by a small handful of votes.

Fired U.S. Attorney Preet Bharara has joined New York University's law school.

Former Labor Department secretary nominee Andy Puzder is being replaced as the CEO of CKE (Hardee's/Carl's Jr). This is ultimately what happens to anyone who works with Trump. At some point or another.

    So, if we liberals wanted to mount our own militia, now might be a good time to do it. Guns are gonna be cheap and plentiful for a while.

    I’m picturing a whole bunch of white dudes. They’re standing in their walk in closet full of guns, clutching maxed out credit card bills in their hands.

    “So, they never did come for my guns. When am I going to need all these guns?”

    I have to disagree with that cartoon. THese assholes saw all the shit and gobbled it up with a spoon while latching onto Trump’s ass and screaming “MOOOOOOORE SHIT! MOOOOOOOORE!”

    They’re just pissed off that they got the same shit that everyone they hated got.

    So you know, fuck them. With a fucking knife.

    If taxpayer dollars literally disappear during the Trump years it will be because the administration is packed with the likes of Paul Manafort. The country is being run by thieves and racketeers.

    The Obama is coming for my (fill in the blank) argument strikes as rather ironic. No, Obama was never “coming for” anyone’s guns or religious freedom or anything else. On the other hand, millions of people’s healthcare be it Obamacare, Medicare or Medicaid, Social Security (Despite Trump’s promises), a woman’s right to an abortion, a Gay couples right to get married and even a Transgender person’s right to use a public restroom are things that Trump and the GOP are coming for. Apparently a defining feature of the modern day Republican voter is wild eyed projection.

    The other night Chris Mathews described Kim Jong-un as childish and unstable. It’s a good thing he specified who he was talking about. God help us all.

    I’m guessing Puzder will suffer the same fate as most Republican hacks. He’ll fail very comfortably upward.

      Yep. And Hillary warned us about this. But some folks told her to fuck off, because Bernie wuz robbed by the DNC, something something etc.

      Those same folks were gleeful about Trump’s win and didn’t give two shits about Trump and the GOP going after the things you mentioned–but when they said they were going after legalized pot…Holy Shit! These people were literally charging out after Trump and company like someone shoved a load of cayenne pepper up their asses. They didn’t give a damn about anything else, just their weed.

        As someone recently said:

        It’s hard to pity Trump voters when their common thread seems to be “I knew he’d fuck people over, I just didn’t know I’d be among them.”

        Describes anyone who valued their weed over their fellow humans as well.

    • One of my colleagues at work brought up gay rights in a conversation with our VERY conservative boss. My boss then denied that they were being discriminated and persecuted against and then said that Christians in a America are being persecuted and that it will only get worse. I bit my tongue until it bled because I like and desperately need my job. Don’t get me wrong, I like my boss. He is a very kind person and he’s an authentic Christian in the way he treats other people. However, he is absolutely convinced that Liberals are out to take away his religious freedom and just can’t wait to discriminate against him. He’s been brainwashed by his church elders and the conservative media complex. I have no idea how to fight against such a delusion.

      • Aynwrong

        I don’t know how to fight it either.

        As smug as it seems some people I follow online have a low budget satire of religious films that are premised on the very idea that Christians in America are a persecuted minority. God’s Not Dead and such. I might give it a watch.

        I don’t think this is a way to fight it but it at least it reminds me that I’m not going insane.
