If You're Going To Be An Ass...

The screen shots below are of a post I made in someone's thread and a reply to me. My post is completely unedited. This guy decides to be a total ASS because he can't fucking read and assumes, therefore that I'm some kind of #tRumptard. Now, for me, the key giveaways that I'm being sarcastic in my post would be #tRump, #FauxNuzPropagandaNetwork instead of "President Trump" and "Fox News" and then, finally, at the end, the use of "(#Snark)".  But not one of those things clued him in.

So, as my response to him says, the fact that I have to defend an OBVIOUSLY sarcastic post just baffles me. If you're going to be an ass, at least 1) Read my fucking post and understand what I'm saying and or 2) be a #ReichWingDouchebag. Defending myself from another liberal is ridiculous...and I hate to embarrass you. But I will. Obviously.



The Perfect Response To "It's Your Turn To Suffer"

I saw this in a thread on Democratic Underground and had to repost.


When Trump Voters Say We Suffered Under Obama For 8 Years, This Is How You Respond

“We suffered for eight years. Now it’s your turn.”
Scott wrote a brilliant response asking how exactly his friend had suffered under Obama:

“I am surprised you would wish suffering upon me. That of course is your right, I suppose. I do not wish harm on anyone. Your statement seems to continue the ‘US v THEM’ mentality. The election is over. It is important to get past campaigning and campaign rhetoric and get down to what is uniting, not dividing and what is best for ALL Americans.

There will never be a President who does everything to everyone’s liking. There are things President Obama (and President Clinton) did that I do not like and conversely there are things I can point to that the Presidents Bush did that I agree with. So I am not 100% in lock step with the outgoing President but have supported him and the overall job he did.

And, if you recall, during the Presidential Campaign back in 2008 the campaign was halted because of the “historic crisis in our financial system.” Wall Street bailout negotiations intervened in the election process. The very sobering reality was that there likely could be a Depression and the world financial markets could collapse. The United States was losing 800,000 jobs a month and was poised to lose at least 10 million jobs the first year once the new President took office. We were in an economic freefall. So let us recall that ALL of America was suffering terribly at the beginning of Obama’s Presidency.

But I wanted to look back over the last 8 years and ask you a few questions. Since much of the rhetoric before Obama was elected was that he would impose Sharia Law, Take Away Your Guns, Create Death Panels, Destroy the Economy, Impose Socialism and, since you will agree that NONE of this came to pass, I was wondering: Why have you suffered so?

So let me ask: Gays and Lesbians can now marry and enjoy the benefits they had been deprived of. Has this caused your suffering?

When Obama took office, the Dow was 6,626. Now it is 19,875. Has this caused your suffering?

We had 82 straight months of private sector job growth – the longest streak in the history of the United States. Has this caused your suffering?

Especially considering where the economy was when he took over, an amazing 11.3 million new jobs were created under President Obama (far more than President Bush). Has this caused your suffering?

Obama has taken Unemployment from 10% down to 4.7%. Has this caused your suffering?

Homelessness among US Veterans has dropped by half. Has this caused your suffering?

Obama shut down the US secret overseas prisons. Has this caused your suffering?

President Obama has created a policy for the families of fallen soldiers to have their travel paid for to be there when remains are flown home. Has this caused your suffering?

We landed a rover on Mars. Has this caused your suffering?

He passed the Matthew Shepard Hate Crimes Prevention Act. Has this caused your suffering?

Uninsured adults has decreased to below 10%: 90% of adults are insured – an increase of 20 Million Adults. Has this caused your suffering?

People are now covered for pre-existing conditions. Has this caused your suffering?

Insurance Premiums increased an average of $4,677 from 2002-2008, an increase of 58% under Bush. The growth of these insurance premiums has gone up $4,145 – a slower rate of increase. Has this caused your suffering?

Obama added Billions of dollars to mental health care for our Veterans. Has this caused your suffering?

Consumer confidence has gone from 37.7 to 98.1 during Obama’s tenure. Has this caused your suffering?

He passed the Lilly Ledbetter Fair Pay Act. Has this caused your suffering?

His bi-annual Nuclear Summit convinced 16 countries to give up and destroy all their loose nuclear material so it could not be stolen. Has this caused your suffering?

He saved the US Auto industry. American cars sold at the beginning of his term were 10.4M and upon his exit 17.5M. Has this caused your suffering?

The deficit as a percentage of the GDP has gone from 9.8% to 3.2%. Has this caused your suffering?

The deficit itself was cut by $800 Billion Dollars. Has this caused your suffering?

Obama preserved the middle class tax cuts. Has this caused your suffering?

Obama banned solitary confinement for juveniles in federal prisons. Has this caused your suffering?

He signed Credit Card reform so that rates could not be raised without you being notified. Has this caused your suffering?

He outlawed Government contractors from discriminating against LGBT persons. Has this caused your suffering?

He doubled Pell Grants. Has this caused your suffering?

Abortion is down. Has this caused your suffering?

Violent crime is down. Has this caused your suffering?

He overturned the scientific ban on stem cell research. Has this caused your suffering?

He protected Net Neutrality. Has this caused your suffering?

Obamacare has extended the life of the Medicare insurance trust fund (will be solvent until 2030). Has this caused your suffering?

President Obama repealed Don’t Ask Don’t Tell. Has this caused your suffering?

He banned torture. Has this caused your suffering?

He negotiated with Syria to give up its chemical weapons and they were destroyed. Has this caused your suffering?

Solar and Wind Power are at an all time high. Has this caused your suffering?

High School Graduation rates hit 83% – an all time high. Has this caused your suffering?

Corporate profits are up by 144%. Has this caused your suffering?

He normalized relations with Cuba. Has this caused your suffering?

Reliance on foreign oil is at a 40 year low. Has this caused your suffering?

US Exports are up 28%. Has this caused your suffering?

He appointed the most diverse cabinet ever. Has this caused your suffering?

He reduced the number of troops in both Iraq and Afghanistan. Has this caused your suffering?

Yes, he killed Osama Bin Laden and retrieved all the documents in his possession for analysis. Perhaps THIS caused your suffering?

From an objective standpoint it would appear that the last eight years have seen some great progress and we were saved from a financial collapse. Things are not perfect. Things can always be better. We are on much better footing now than we were in 2008.

I look forward to understanding what caused you to suffer so much under Obama these last eight years.”

Copy & paste to share. I hope you will.

#tRump Rally Echoes Nazis Of The 1930s...

The preacher in this article from Raw Story describes what sounds almost like a Nazi Party rally in the 1930s. This is damned scary shit. #tRump's asshole followers are entitled to their 1st Amendment rights, but so are the rest of us. The rest of us, by the way, being the vast majority of the country. When you look at the numbers, many didn't vote at all, and then #tRump LOST the popular vote among those of us who did vote by about 3 million. So you #tRump fans are the minority in this country. Acting like a bunch of goose-stepping Nazi thugs doesn't impress anyone. It just proves that you ARE in fact, racist, reactionary, fascist thugs. You may as well put on the Nazi gray uniforms. 

What's next, book burning and Krystal Nacht, you Nazi fucks?

#LastNightInSweden

The Swedish embassy has asked the State Department to give a formal explanation for #OurDearLeader, the #NuclearCheeto, #ElCaudilloDelMar-A-Lago, Donald J. #tRump's (R-Ferret-Wearing-Shitgibbon) remark that seemed to indicate that there was a terrorist attack in Sweden on Friday night. Yet another day that #OrangeFoolius sets another record for being a national embarrassment.


Flat Earthers...

This is just another reason why sports and players should not be held up as role models.  This idiot thinks the Earth is flat...

Scientists should be set up as role models for our kids... /SMMFH

A Special Kind Of Stupid

You know, it takes a special kind of stupid to quote me something that specifically fucking states that what you're talking about is nothing 1) a paper, not a scientific study and 2) nothing but assertion...and then turn around and tell me that's PROOF of voter fraud.
I'm willing to consider any hypothesis. But bring me proof, not simply assertion and allegations that are only backed up by people who are invested in said allegations. Try to play word games with me and I will chew your ass apart and spit out the pieces.
Fucking moron.

Greenwald And Kucinich Have Lost Their Minds

No. Greenwald and Kucinich have it wrong. #tRump is a danger not just to our system by undermining trust in the electoral system, but the courts (and threatening not to abide by court decisions, which is a fucking FIRST!); undermining and dissing the news media the way tinpot dictators do/did; taking classified briefings in front of Mar-A-Lago guests; letting Mar-A-Lago members pose for photos with the officer carrying the nuclear "football"; installing #Unqualified cronies in cabinet positions; putting a noted racist, anti-semite on the National Security Council - also #Unqualified for the job; and possibly having treasonous contacts with Russian intelligence officials.  Need I go on?

#OrangeFoolius Hates His Job

Who'd have guessed that the #VulgarTalkingYam would get bored so quickly? (raises hand)

There are too many details for Our Dear Leader, the #NuclearCheeto, #ElCaudilloDelMar-A-Lago, Donald J. #tRump (R-Ferret-Wearing-Shitgibbon) to handle. So he dumps shit off on others to deal with. #AgentOrange would rather be on the golf course, or some place where he can #GrabEmByTheP___y.

Well, tough shit, #Fuckstick. You saddled this bronco, now you get to ride it.

#LindseyTheLiar Graham (R-Fabulous) Says OK To Shut Up Women...

Little #LindseyTheLiar Graham (R-Fabulous*) said it was "about time" Elizabeth Warren was shut up. The Fairy Princess from South Cackalaki says that it's "about time"...to make a woman shut up. A tad ironic, dontcha think, Lindsey Boy?

Think that over, folks. Think that over.  I've lived in that state. That attitude is...well,not uncommon.

*Note: I'm not attacking #LindseyTheLiar Graham (R-Fabulous) for being gay. I'm busting his chops with the insults for being a closeted, self-hating, duplicitous, sonofabitch.

Sean "Sphincter" Spicer (R-I Lie For A Living) Goes Over The Top...

Seriously, Sphincter? You hope that Coretta Scott King would support Jeffahson Bohreegahd Sessions Tha Thuhrd (R-Lying Racist Shit), if she were alive today?

You are out of your goddamned mind, delusional as hell, and fucking stupid. There is no way in the Universe that Mrs. King would support that racist sack of shit.
Fuck you, Sphincter. Fuck you.

Welcome To The Beginning Of The End...

Of the public school system. The graphics speak for themselves as to what the #RepubliCons want to do, starting with the confirmation of #Unqualified Betsy Devon (R-Bought A Cabinet Seat) to Secretary of Education.

Raphael "Teddy" #sCruz-ball (R-Batshit Crazy)...

Is one mean, evasive, lying, hypocritical, sonofabitch. This miserable sack of shit is a master of ducking the question.  The #ReichWingDouchebag gets healthcare 100‰ on the US taxpayers, but he'll allow insurance companies to deny coverage for pre-existing conditions (that also means you, pregnant ladies). #TedCruzIsAnIdiot, for sure. I hope that #Tex-ass will stop being #Tex-ass and get rid of him one day...

Disclaimer: My own state isn't much better right now...

They Can't Find The Light Switches?!?!

Oh, for fuck's sake! How pathetic can these people be? #tRump's people can't find the light switches and he knocks off by 630 PM to lounge in his robe.

This is pure, unadulterated, rank incompetence. Can't find the switches... Jesus H. Christ on stick...

Lounge in his robe by 630. Does the baby need his bottle and diaper changed? Obama worked until late at night. Every day. #AgentOrange is a lazy gobshite. Seriously, #OrangeFoolius is in overthe ferret on his head. Our Dear Leader, the #NuclearCheeto, #ElCaudilloDelMar-A-Lago, Donald J. #tRump (R-Ferret-Wearing-Shitgibbon) needs to resign. Quit now and do us ALL a favor.

Beavis Grew Up...

And was apparently transgender.  Who knew?  I'd never have thought that he'd become sellout Kellyanne Conway (R-I Sold My Soul), either.

Will wonders never cease?

The #NuclearCheeto Goes Nuclear...

On the Federal judge who ruled that the #VulgarTalkingYam's power grab of a travel ban was unconstitutional. #AgentOrange has now pulled out the #ReichWingDouchebag coded dogwhistle and I'll explain in a second:

Our Dear Leader, the #NuclearCheeto, #ElCaudilloDelMar-A-Lago Donald J. #tRump (R-Ferret-Wearing-Shitgibbon) says that "if anything happens blame the judge". This is code for "open season violence on this, or any other federal judge that dares to rule against me". #TinyFingers has crossed a major red line...

World Cancer Day



I saw in another post (thanks, +Laura Natale) that today,  2/4, is World Cancer Day. Personally, I'd never heard of it before.
Some of you may recall that I had  cancer back in the Fall of 2015. My surgery anniversary was November, 11th and I'm still in remission.
This is my "Live Strong" bracelet. I never take it off...

#DonaldTweetler

So, Russia's #AgentOrange, Our Dear Leader, the #NuclearCheeto, #ElCaudilloDelMar-A-Lago, Donald J. #tRump (R-Ferret-Wearing-Shitgibbon) has had a meltdown on Twitter.  The #VulgarTalkingYam is raging against the Federal judge that ruled his Muslim travel ban was unconstitutional. As usual, his meltdown is more like a 5th grader in a name-calling/insult contest than anything that sounds like a 70 year old grown man (Twitter users chew him a new asshole, though...and it's hilarious).  To borrow a phrase from #DonaldTweetler, "So sad!"




Thursday, February 2, 2017

Hey, #tRump Voters, Guess Who Pays...

For #tRump's (R-Ferret-Wearing-Shitgibbon), Steve Bannon (R-Racist Traitor) and Rex Tillerson's (R-Exxon) South China Sea dumbfuckery?  Won't be the kids of their rich buddies.  It's gonna be you, your kids and all the people in the military and the rest of us in the middle class.  These traitorous new versions of #BenedictArnold are going to pick a shooting war with China.  You're going to be the ones getting shot full of lead.  Not Our Dear Leader, the #NuclearCheeto, #ElCaudilloDelMar-A-Lago, Donald J. #tRump's kind.  When was the last time someone like #OrangeFoolius had anyone in harm's way?  Well, a Democrat family did, in World War II:  the Kennedy family, for sure.  The #VulgarTalkingYam skipped out on Vietnam on bogus deferments. 

So, you've been played...and now you're going to pay.  And the rest of us will be forced to pay the same bill, but we didn't get drunk with you.  So, thanks. Thanks a whole fucking lot...

Sincerely,
The Rest of Us (Also Known As:  The Majority Of The Country).

PS:  Open note to the world:  We're SOOO fucking sorry...

What Can 24 Hours Bring?

Our Dear Leader, the #NuclearCheeto, #ElCaudillioDelMar-A-Lago, Donald J. #tRump (R-Ferret-Wearing-Shitgibbon) has done more embarrassing shit than most Presidents do in...a year.  And I include #DerMonkeyFurher, #IncuriousGeorgeBush (R-BFEE) in that "most".

Oh, and #OrangeFoolius couldn't be bothered to be in the Situation Room while the Navy Seal was killed on the raid that the #VulgarTalkingYam ordered. #Pathetic


Well Damn, There Goes South Park...

The creators of South Park have announced that the real life comedy inside the White House is so over the top, that they can't beat it.  Therefore, they're going to leave #OrangeFoolius, Our Dear Leader, the #NuclearCheeto, #ElCaudilloDelMar-A-Lago, Donald J. #tRump (R-Ferret-Wearing-Shitgibbon) alone for now.  That. Just. Blows. Because South Park's political comedy makes me look like a rank amateur (not like I'm NOT an amateur anyway, but still).

But Jesus H. Christ on a stick!  To not have stuff like this?


Or THIS:

A sad, sad day...

Remember That Time...

Hey, #MitchTheBitch! Fck you. Just. Fck you. You are a hypocritical, lying sack of shit and I'm going to make sure that people see this on a regular basis. You're the one who set the standard. President Obama was the legitimate President who had the right to make the appointment. YOU are the #ReichWingDouchebag who broke protocol. So I won't even be polite:  Go Fck yourself, eat shit and die. #Fuckstick.
