I don't know how much more of this I can take.

This illegitimately elected, ignorant and STUNNINGLY foolish man cannot stop assaulting the constitution. Not only is his executive order on immigration unnecessary, xenophobic and Islamophobic, but it is disingenuous as it was designed to incite the worst impulses of this terrible man's most rabid supporters. This is not only a terrible tragedy for the poor individuals caught up in this hateful and un-American game this appalling man is playing, but it is arguably a bigger tragedy for our nation and a disgrace to every single American citizen.


A Truly RUDE one from The Rude Pundit. . . .

He lets the Orange Asshole have it!


Congressman Lewis knows how to handle tRump.

Don't even engage with him. No invitations or offers to make peace. tRump made his bed, and now he has to lie in it. This is going to sound snotty, but truly, nobody who matters will go flocking towards that buffoon.

I've always had deep respect for Congressman Lewis, and I see now why he's been such a formidable force in Congress. He doesn't even have to raise his voice. He has quiet and steely power and knows how to use it.


Something very ugly is bound to happen on January 20.

Either tRump's goon squads or Brown Shirts or "casual" supporters will end up harming somebody. It's terrible to contemplate, but that's what happens when you have a Fascist Festival with alcohol involved.

Rude Pundit tells it like it is as he usually does. . .


This is how Emperor Orange Pig's Ass

will behave upon removal from the White House. . . .

This is how I get my jollies in 2017. Isn't it pathetic?


Today is the FIRST day I've looked at the NYT since December.

And it's APPALLING. Just fucking appalling. Seriously. . . . WTF is wrong with these people?

I'm not expecting an answer per se, as there are so MANY goddamned things wrong with them: stupid and racist for starters.

But seriously. Really. WHO is so fucking dumb that they have to ask a question like this? What has happened to our country?

On edit-- this would have been a KILLER just a few years ago. This would have merited such a shit storm of outrage that NOBODY would be inaugurated (ESPECIALLY a Democrat) had there been even a "whiff" of Russian poo poo. This is far beyond outrageous for somebody my age (admittedly it is outrageous for everybody), as we remember a time when, yes, Republicans were obnoxious, hypocritical, and holier than thou, but they didn't collude with Russians in our presidential elections. Godamn. That sounds like a headline in a supermarket tabloid. Jesus fucking Christ.


Question for my DU friends in deep RED places. . .

First of all, I grew up in Hellsville, Redstate, a southern state that used to be solidly Democratic. But as most other southern states, evangelical christians, racists, the advent of right right wing news, etc, brought about a big change.

My parents still live there--two very liberal individuals--surrounded, and I mean SURROUNDED by red in a small town. I know the feeling It was claustrophobic and awful.

But what do you do if you can't leave?? Not everybody has the ability, the means, the desire, the job, or whatever-- to just pull up stakes.

I pity the lives my parents lead, as they either socialize with racist tRump supporters, or they don't socialize at all. It's the same small town my mother was born in which is somewhat worse, because many of these deplorables were childhood friends of hers. As a gay man, I have to say that I'm not terribly interested in anything my parents relay to me about their social life with these people, as I don't follow the activities of Nazis, and if they can't deal with me as I am, I have no use for them.

What do you do if you are the ONLY liberal in a small town? I guess there's DU, but outside of that, what???? I'm a baby boomer for what that's worth, so growing up in a small town for me was NOT what it's like today. Nonetheless, Donald J. Trump wasn't elected (or whatever) president, so it IS a new, unpleasant world, and it is NOT normal.

Everybody has his or her "3rd rail". . .

One's 3rd rail is totally personal and isn't always what might be the "worst thing" for all.

My "3rd rail" is ANYTHING or ANYBODY (nominees for SCOTUS, congressional meddling, etc) who wants to create/advance//facilitate ANY kind of religion, prayer, "protection" for intolerance based on religion, etc. You can include with this ANY kind of intolerance against Muslims too.

Of course there are other crucial things that affect our country--domestic or international that concern me enough to keep me awake at night, but THIS is what REALLY pushes my buttons and sets me off the most.

What are your touchy points? I'm always curious.
