Got a spam email from England, ‘open enrollment in Trump Care’

Somebody is being very presumptious…


Some pigs in Bed-Stuy NY got refused service at donut shop, fascists boo-hoo about it

Yeah. Pig loving ‘conservative’ coward whores are hoping the pigs retaliate at a traffic shop so they can jack off to the video. Pigs of a feather still can’t fly. Or commit some act of honor or courage. They talk much stupid about an unarmed clerk standing his ground (or her ground) against heavily armed state-sponsored terrorists and torture fanciers, who have a reputation for murdering citizens who don’t bow down and kiss the PIGS’ jackboots.


so called conservatives willing to take credit for mosque bombing

Because they’re morons and living proof that there’s a right-wing chain of command wherein they’re told to do such atrocity. That and they’re true coward punks. If there had been any violent people worshiping at the mosque the chickenshit punk who tossed the bomb wouldn’t have gone near it. Even with a squad backing him up. That’s their level of ‘courage’.


Dueling Headlines, Racist Arpaio found guilty, ICE held citizen 3 years and refuse to compensate.

And they say they don’t have a racist agenda or that  Trump and Arpaio and all the Minutemen Scum are affiliated with the Klan, Skinheads and Nazis. Bunch of lying bitches. They lied about their agenda when they attacked me in 1986 in El Paso too. Nothing new there. Border Patrol/ICE have ALWAYS been a publicly subsized private enforcement arm of the Supremacists. ICE is counter-suing for rent on their Torture Center cell they graciously allowed the victim, and the prison slop they fed him. The El Paso CJC is one of the Concentration Camps which does the daily dirty work for their ICE masters. Our own beloved Klan minion Maketa should have been prosecuted for his racist crap many years ago. Instead the Wonderful ‘justice’ community here let him go and go and the only thing they’re prosecuting him for doing was hogging resources for his own property during a forest fire, thus letting his rich-bitch neighbors to Burn, baby, Burn.


even the politicians are acting all kinds of up…

Governor Christie of New Jersey decides to get up in the grill of another spectator at a baseball game. With his bodyguards in tow. Because the guy talked back to him. OMG. The guy he attacked just laughed at him. Apparently Christie hadn’t had his nap and probably had a load in his diaper. His responsible adults got him to back his stupid ass down. End of story? Well, no. The Right Wingnuts are trying to have him canonized and nominating him for a Cabinet seat, where he could be in the presence of his lord Trump. Where does the stupidity end?


People used to be ashamed of racism.

Until the Idiots decided that being nice to people and recognizing their common humanity was “politically correct”. Politeness and at least an attempt at being correct, those are admirable and noble goals, yes? Until the advertising divisions of many corporations, like FOX  for instance, conditioned the least educated and most simple minded Socially Retarded Animated Sphincters on the planet, Republicans, and their nasty little piglets, that it’ ok to actually hit other people. And they act shocked when, after decades of Lone Wolf Shooting Spree idiots, THEIR own spawn, somebody on the Left shot at Congressional Republicans. I’m tempted to say boo-to the hoo hoo hoo. I’m not going to call them nasty names even though the crybaby dumbshit pinhead skinhead Retardicans deserve it. Not from fear, but just because I’m smarter than them and as such I have a social duty to not lower myself to their level. Besides, lowering my IQ and social responsibility that drastically would mean I would need to use a lot of really dangerous drugs and it might become permanent. Their recipe for hate is like (but not exactly) making bread. Instead of flour, yeast, water, shortening and sugar they use rotted faeces.  They stir it up, add in some hate speech their stupid mommas taught them, then shape it with their already bloodstained and filthy bare hands, but I’m not (—WARNING!! REALLY BAD PUN ALERT!!—) going to do that. I don’t knead your shit.


north dakota terrorism incident at WalMart over parking spot.

A white lady in Fargo N Dakota got into an argument over a parking spot with three Somali-AMERICAN women. She told them “we’re gonna kill all of you” and the Trumpista Cult is on it like stink on shit. They’re calling for the death of anybody who disagrees with them as being terrorism and treason. I’m not going to pander to the right wing hate squads and their bigotry. I’m not going to buy into the MYTH surrounding the so-called founding so-called fathers like Serial Rapists Washington and Jefferson and Madison (raping the slaves is a privilege slaveholders have always cherished) being the sole arbiters of what church we must attend, and if you want a religious dictatorship in America you’ll have a Church State and its exact conjoined twin is you’ll have a State Church . Every imported religious congregation in America was kicked out of its former kingdom because they angered the king. EVERY… ONE… OF… Them. People who can’t tell the difference between Presbyterian from Lutheran from Episcopalian (and there were huge wars fought in good old White Supremacist Europe for CENTURIES over those tiny differences) do not have some God given ‘right’ to tell me what church should rule over all others. I’m certainly not going to obey your commands to Hate Human beings because of their faith or ancestry or any of your other reasons to Hate people. Trump doesn’t run my life. I’m sorry for you and will pray for you if that’s what rules YOUR life. A Parking dispute turns into a Jihadi Attack by those who are mentally conditioned to see Jihad everywhere they look. You’ve allowed other people to tell you who you’re required to hate. That’s too bad. IF the three women who were threatened with DEATH by the other woman actually WERE Jihadim the women would have killed her. Maybe. The fact that they didn’t respond to the hate speech with violence is really obvious but not for people who are conditioned to hate. Guess what? If there was no Jew or Muslim or Atheist in America you would be fighting your fellow Christians. You do ANYWAY, and if Trump or his Cult say they don’t I’ll laugh in your stupid face and dare you to do something about it. The Pilgrims and Puritans were both kicked out by the Kings James and Charles whatever their numbers Because They Did Not Conform To The Episcopalian Church, which was a punishable offense in England up till the late 1800s. It’s called Non-Conformism and that’s where we get the term

Kill your wife, blame the victim, post on yahoo. Maybe not in that order

I admit, sometimes I write comments on other websites, notably Yahoo News. Huffington Post put up a couple of articles, one saying that most homicides (women) are committed in Domestic Violence. Pure statistics. And the second is like unto the first, 56% of women killed were shot. Firearms. Death by Bullet, you know the one. Again that’s a pure statistic. On the first one, just before I posted, there were ten in a row Troll Comments to the effect that Women are evil greedy abusive and need to be killed, some advocating that the true cause of the killings were because women have equality instead of being handmaids and property of their husbands. I shit you not. Some even used scripture to justify it. Some of the screen names of the so-called ‘men’ I’ve seen before, trashing Muslims for having a set of laws which allow a husband to beat or kill his wife. Or Wives, and don’t get freaky about Muslim polygamy as we’re one state over from Utah which was founded by polygamists, and nothing in Leviticus which prohibits a man from having several wives. And Leviticus has a statute which grants parents the ‘right’ to kill their kids. So it’s hypocrisy on the hoof. The ones who advocated Divorce by Assassination told horror stories about abusive women, and sometimes a woman kills a man, and that most divorces are filed by women. Imagine that, a woman being such a bitch that she won’t stay in a relationship with a guy who considers Killing His Wife to be justified. Where do we get these chumps anyway? Is there a special ranch in West Texas where they raise them? The second is much like the first, only it was condemned, and Huffington Post along with it, as  being anti-gun propaganda. Oh, yeah, that’s unconstitutional, don’t you know, to point out that so many women killed by handguns and so many goofy-ass punks advocating shooting their wives, and using God to justify it, oh my, how Treasonous and anybody saying otherwise is TYRANNY! How much do you want to bet these assholes vote a straight Republican ticket unless there’s a more hate-filled racist cultic party puts up a candidate…like the Tea Party?


Drama Queen in Chief just declared himself Autocrat.

Meaning he’s said he can and will pardon himself and his family for the crimes he said were never committed. And here I was thinking Nixon was the craziest president in my lifetime.There’s an esoteric medical term for his condition, let me see if I can get it right … “Crazy as a shithouse rat and probably dangerous”


Police body cameras reveal Colorado Springs law enforcement used arrests to infiltrate a student socialist group.


COLORADO SPRINGS, COLORADO- Police body worn camera footage accidentally discovered to defendants in the March 26, 2017, protest cases, has revealed a mysterious side story at the Colorado Springs Socialists’ “March Against Imperialism”. At that march, six participants were cited for marching in the street. Meanwhile, a curious seventh was detained, driven off, but not cited. CSPD Officer Krueger’s body-cam recorded what happened and more.

I sincerely hope Nicaragua beats the fuck out of the U.S. Soccer team

Because so many “patriots” think that a game played by children would prove one or another political/slash/economic system to be better than any other. Like the “Miracle On Ice” hockey victory of the doped up US team over the USSR somehow proves publicly subsidized Privately Owned Capital to be better than any other. We’re “free” to worship the yankee dollar, aka Mammon, and those who have more of the yankee Mammon dollar are of course better than anybody else, even though it’s been obtained by the Anybody Else killing babies in foreign and local wars and the Elitist punks on Wall Street don’t get their pretty little hands soiled by direct labor or direct combat. That’s why a loving Mammon in his glory and mercy gave ‘us’ peasants to do it for ‘us’. Or ‘our’ corporate masters.. of course, by the same token, the USSR Basketball team must have proven that Communism was the better system. And there’s the known fact that Nicaragua was violently attacked, you know, with murder and other mayhem and destruction, by Reagan and other Fascist Scum going all the way back to when the Spanish Inquisition claimed all of America.  Oh, and about that Fall of Communism…. the Fascists are expecting all Americans except those who actually had their own Bankster pockets lined with blood money to pay the interest on the bonds the Fascists floated in the name of Everybody… for generations to come. It seems Capital can’t survive on its own merits. By the way… the US 1972 basketball team…

Could Marshal Petain have actually been Resistance?

I mean, I know he and DeGaulle had serious differences, but DeGaulle wasn’t exactly a liberal or progressive, wouldn’t fit in with hippies, you know? Fascists like Hitler, Mussolini, Quisling, their counterparts in Spain, Greece and Portugal, there were plenty of them, they don’t like each other. The proverb ‘the enemy of my enemy must be my friend” really doesn’t hold up under scrutiny. By the way, this is something that would sound neat-o if read After A Night With no Sleep. But I’ll continue. Dunkirk is in the movie theater downtown now.  But back to Petain. What if his “surrender” was a sham? For one thing, the French army etc didn’t have to  spend the war in a POW camp. or surrender their arms. So maybe it’s not so much capitulation as cold-blooded opportunism. Dude was a vicious fascist prick, like trump only smarter, and actually introduced himself as a fascist. I get a severe case of the red-ass when really stupid people talk smack about the french being serial surrender-monkeys. They ran England for 700 years approximately, And Austria, which has a rep for being really belligerent. English wasn’t the court and private language for the aristocracy until George the 4th. Prior to the French taking over their island the Saxons (Germans) for 500 approximate years ran the place. The current Queen was only a couple of reigns away from having the surname Saxe-Goetheburg, because the English king Edward the however-the-hell his number changed it in anticipation of having a war with Germany, and needed an English connection for his family so people wouldn’t lynch him. It seems the English royalty at least were the real surrender-monkeys.    And the dumbshits who keep up the insults against the French are angry because the French aren’t (usually) capitulating to ‘our’ Fascist government, and they don’t want to seem childish and petulant about it. Of course, they do anyway, they can’t overcome their reputation as crybabies.


The Fed’s Janet Yellen says economy healthy enough for usurers to start bleeding it again

That’s essentially what the Federal Reserve does, it monitors public wealth to regulate how much surplus production can be skimmed off the top. Usually all of it. But someone has to determine how much that is to prevent the banking vampires from sucking the public to death.


Irish people hitting Irish people, as usual


Maybe it will reverse anthropogenic global warming

‘it’ being the caldera that is the monstrous geo- zit that sits under Yellowstone constantly threatening to blow off a freak of a lot of steam. And other shit.There was a 5.8 earthquake right on or right next to it this morning. Oops it’s just after midnight now so YESTERDAY morning. The smug Trump followers who were rejoicing that Donald took the wolves, grizzly bears and buffalo off the protected list. They’re angry that they weren’t allowed to finish up the job started around the Civil War, when such wise and noble individuals (who murdered children) as Chivington, Custer, Palmer, Carson, Cody et al decided it would be a smart idea to get rid of the Natives by destroying the ecologic systems such as shooting all the buffalo, etc. Which led to the Dust Bowl, massive famine (another word for economic meltdown) wherein U.S. population was slanted to rural areas and STILL people were going hungry. Economy and Ecology are related terms, funny how that happens with a truly structured language like Greek. But ecology means the science of the kitchen and economy means the funding for the kitchen. Notice that it has a lot to do with food. Now, I’m slowing down on my caloric intake since I had a brush with the precursors for diabetes . But I still likes my vittles. I suppose, just a thought, maybe everybody else in the world is in favor of not starving. Oh, here’s another little problem, even if Old Faithful doesn’t participate in a full scale eruption, you know what else is up near there? Guess… Montana, Canada, The Dakotas … you know, the ones blessed with the DAPL and Keystone pipelines, a blessing we were forced at gunpoint, literally, to accept. Also Minot N.D. which has a Missile Base. When I was in the Air Farts it was the second largest stockpile of nukes, right behind Carswell AFB on the outskirts of Ft Worth. Then there are an ungodly array of chemical and biological weapons repositories. Like the one on the outskirts of Pueblo. Maybe my friends were right and the earth is consciously getting rid of us. Or committing suicide. Or both. Bottom line is we’ve been tossed into the trash by the richest, so they could have more shiny rocks to play with.


a slight correction on the earlier post.

OK so I lost a neat little correction. So here I go rebuilding it. The hot dog thing was a 100th anniversary of the hot dog maker and their annual eating contest. Still worthless, stupid… still gluttony in the name of God, rejoicing on the Anglo Conquest where whole nations are stuffed into the gullets of the WarPimp Corporations, the very term Banana Republic was when two American fruit companies sued each other over which of the lands belonged to which of the Banana Barons. That’s somewhere in the middle, closer to present. Sovereign nations eaten up. The first tribes the Anglo Invaders robbed were the Delaware, and possibly the Roanoke colony, which disappeared, ripped off the local tribes there as well. The Standing Rock issue is square in the greedy gut of the Corporate Machine. Same scenario, to a point, instead of wanting fishing and hunting and farming ‘rights’ with the Originals not being able to continue fishing, hunting and farming and of course living on their own land. The producers on ESPN and the Coney Island Thieves made light of it. They believe sincerely or their show was a complete farce, that the hot dog gluttony bullshit proves the superiority of the American Exceptionalism and the ongoing Baby-killing wars of conquest and all the heroic Fascist Rat Bastards who made it possible…They kept banging on about how God and Patriotism demand such a spectacle. Maybe they could do something that would make them at least on par with the rest of humanity, like apologize for their behavior and the way they present the U.S. to the rest of the world. All the sane people in America could instigate a class-action defamation lawsuit. Because they portray all Americans as being nasty sloppy hogs who want to take over the rest of the world.                  Silly Sarah brought a defamation suit against the New York Times because they pointed out the FACT that she and her equally demented TeaBaggers advocated assassination of Democratic legislators and the president of the U.S., even burning and hanging in effigy the Democratic and Republican representatives and senators who brought the Affordable Care Act into being. She did that before, after and during the  Tucson assassination of a Judge who ruled against the chickenshit  MinuteMen TERRORISTS when they started believing they were the established government. Kay Sarah Sarah, babe, give it up. You failed at everything, you had your 15 minutes of fame, it’s over, m’kay? You couldn’t kill-by-proxy Gabby Giffords and you’re too much of a coward to do it yourself, just like your Exceptionalist butt-master Donald Trump, and I don’t give three quarters of a fat rat’s left testicle what you think of it.


The guy’s name is Joey Chestnut. Miss Johnnie asked How did he do that?

Well, first he sold his soul to satan and then discarded every hint of self respect. The event was a hot dog eating contest. All that’s missing is a vomitorium. The very near perfect definition of decadence. The dude ate 69 complete servings, sausage, bun and condiments. This was on a sports channel. The Romans had the reputation and routinely written confessions to what St Paul called ‘surfeiting’ , not just gluttony but with a twist… they would go to a separate chamber where they would purge please don’t ask how using a feather poked into the back of the mouth… The medical word is bulimia. Only they would do it not for medical or psychiatric (well, maybe a bit of the psych stuff) reasons.. but to go and eat some more.Thousands of fans in the stadium. How many millions watched on TV. The contest was over nearly a half hour ago and there are still analysts talking about it. “Why?” would be a better query. At the end he wrapped a U.S. Flag over himself and proclaimed that God pushed him into it. He blamed his grotesque hobby on America and God.

POW-MIA. Not forgotten or forgiven.


The POW-MIA flag used to represent a renegade popular sentiment that our military wasn’t taking seriously the American soldiers left behind in Vietnam. Now the same flag flies from the flapoles of federal buildings like VA facilities. I think the cultural fixation on foresaken warriors is a Freudian reflection of our nation’s moral conscience. Indead our better self is a Prisoner Of War. Likewise Missing In Action. America you ARE forgotten, and I’ll add not forgiven.


Republicans shelved health “reform” again.

Because they think they could fix it once they sober up and abandon Trump. That and they know they’d get lynched when they have to leave Washington and face the people they supposedly represent. Their plan satisfies the requirement for the title of The Triple Lie, like Holy Roman Empire and Meals, Ready, to Eat. “health” and “care” and “reform”.


Steve Russell of Rag Blog and the stupidity of impeachment of Trump

His entire cabinet, the Heirs Apparents  of Trump should anything happens to him, are just as greedy, lazy, cowardly and uninformed as himself. Pence is the first runner up. My God that’s horrifying. It’s like a nightmare. Please, dear readers, don’t drop acid while contemplating that. The rest of the Succession is a spiral starting in the hottest chambers of Hell and gets worse. The only real solution involves a really bloody revolution. Like the French revolution but without getting tired of beheading the royals. Just keep it going until they’re gone.


What could be better than impeaching Trump, Congress and all Federal Judges –and The Second Coming?

Eh. We won’t bloody likely  get most of that, the Second Coming maybe but most people won’t like it. But, They’re Prosecuting Our de-loved Klan ex-Sheriff Terry Maketa!  Of course they’re not prosecuting the numerous killing of inmates and even more simple beatings which got his Official Okey Dokey… nothing ground-shaking like that. We’d probably have a better chance of finding the lost herd of unicorns with their elven keepers.  At the wedding of the Easter Bunny and the Tooth Fairy, presided over by Santa Claus. Nay, dear friends, it’s because he stuck it to his Ku Klux Minutemen friends while all their properties were at risk is a forest fire, and he used his rank in Emergency Response to have HIS property as the Priority for protection. Of all the crimes he’s committed over the past couple of decades, THAT one was the camel who broke the straw. Bad use of mixed metaphor there. As L’il Abner might have said it, “if I had my druthers I’d ruther have him punished for shit that most sheriffs and other pigs get away with doing on a regular basis”.

Fascist Mercenary Capitol PIGS arrest 4, on Terror charge, for selling water

Of course the detained and probably beaten in custody young men were black. Question for the Right Wing, who all, as usual, cheered by the PIGS beat down of young men Making Their Own Job… Which of you Capitalist Hypocrites offered them jobs? If any of you respond with a statement that you personally would have done so, if they lick your Fascist boots, you’re still a liar because you wouldn’t hire them no matter how much they grovel. Feel as self righteous as you want, go to Church and lie to God and the congregation about how righteous you want them to think you are.


US taunts Syria with chemical weapons game: stop hitting yourself, stop hitting yourself!

How does America know that Bashar Assad is planning a chemical attack against his own people? The same way we knew last time, because ’twas America who done it. And it’s the same refrain the US has used everytime. Saddam launched a chemical attack against his own people. We’re worried that Saddam will resort to a chemical attack against his own people. Though of course, no trace of chemical weapons was found. Surprising that, because America HAD SOLD HIM chemical weapons. Same in Assad’s case. This time they’re already in our possession. We have our covert proxies use them on absolutely whoever (Assad’s own people) and blame it on Assad.


Don’t fire until you see the white of their flag

A Canadian sniper has set a new record for remote killing by successfully hitting an unsuspecting target two miles away. Apparently the bullet took ten seconds to reach its victim. From two miles, even with a powerful scope, the objects of scrutiny would look no bigger than ants. Could the Joint Task Force sniper tell an army ant from a noncombatant? An insurgent from common civilian? Give the sniper a medal but it is poetic justice that these sharpshooters suffer debilitating PTSD with flashbacks of lives they voyeuristically truncate mid-sentence or mid-laugh, for no other justification than that the victim fell under their crosshairs.
