As Sure As Night Follows Day...


He who lives by the wall, dies by the wall



FLASHBACK: 10 Years ago today


How wonderful that was.
How times have changed

"This is a transnational crime syndicate masquerading as a government."


“I don't buy this theory at all that Trump thought he wasn't going to win or he didn't want to win. I mean, first off, this is Trump and you have to imagine that in his head he's content to lose to a woman and lose to a Clinton.

“But second of all, his relationship with Russia goes back 30 years as do his political ambitions. He nearly ran for president in 1988, in 1996; he ran in 2000, he ran in 2012, and he ran again in 2016. That's not a political neophyte, that's somebody whose had long-term political ambitions.
We also know that Trump has had ties to Russian officials and to organized crime for about 30 years and that he's been the source of various crackdowns on those crimes. For example, there's an investigation into the Taj Mahal casino by the US Treasury in 2015, Trump may have been in trouble.

“A great way to get out of trouble is if you're the President of the United States and you can pack the courts, you can purge agencies, you can rewrite the law so that you can be immune from prosecution as well as filling your own autocratic objectives and partnering with autocrats around the world, which is what he's done.

The biggest difference between left and right?

I think I have figured it out. The biggest difference between left and right is not about policy. It is not about positions on GAY RIGHTS, the WAR ON WOMEN, the BIG SOCIETY, RACE and RACISM, UNIVERSAL HEALTHCARE, CREATIONISM, RELIGION, EVOLUTION, CLIMATE CHANGE, GUN CONTROL or FOX NEWS v NBC. Etc etc

Nope, nothing to do with those things at all. Political beliefs are all about your state of mind and it occurred to me after years of pottering about on the interwebs and watching multitudes of conservatives twist their panties in wads of not so righteous indignation at just about everything, that I really now know the difference between the left and the right…..


Conservatives DO NOT have a sense of HUMOUR. At least not one I have any hope of understanding. I wonder if that is why there are so few conservative comedians? Maybe it is because they have sold their souls to the devil, that they look like they are sucking on a lemon ALL THE TIME? Maybe they like being cross as a state of mind? Who knows, but I do know it is a very rare thing to see them crack a funny that is actually funny.


That's #Brexit.


Imagine two posh people who hate each other standing in the doorway of a collapsing building going ‘After you’ ‘no, after you’, while 66 million people are trapped inside waiting for them to stop dicking about.
That, but a bit more racist. That’s #Brexit.

Good as definition as any, I say!

MAGA's Real Definition..

Would be funny if it where not quite so real

'Be careful, Nancy': Trump threatens to deport 11 million immigrants unless 'irrational' Pelosi.....

.....approves wall

President Donald Trump launched a furious attack at House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) on Sunday morning in a series of tweets filled with threats and invective.

Taking to Twitter, the president began: “No, Amnesty is not a part of my offer. It is a 3 year extension of DACA. Amnesty will be used only on a much bigger deal, whether on immigration or something else. Likewise there will be no big push to remove the 11,000,000 plus people who are here illegally-but be careful Nancy!”


He is an unhinged wanna be strong man... fucking with people like they are nothing

How has faith or lack thereof in childhood shaped your faith or lack thereof as an adult?

Common wisdom would suggest that if you are raised in a religious household, you are more likely to have some sort of faith as you reach adulthood and if you are raised in a non-religious household faith would seem less relevant. However, I meet many people who were raised in strict religious households who after much contemplation moved away from the faith of their forefathers as adults. I also meet many adults who have been raised within their faith and stay in it all their lives.

Have you been raised in a strict religious environment but moved away from that faith as an adult? Or are you someone with a strong faith who came to your faith as an adult? Or is it more likely that it is the faith of your parents, something that you carried over from childhood, a family tradition as it were?

For me. I grew up in a very strict religious right family. I have not set foot inside this church in 30 years, other than for my father’s funeral.

Do you have faith because you are supposed to? Or because you want to? Do you have a lack of faith because you are supposed to? Or because you want to?

How does faith define you?
