Victims Faults

Now, post Dallas police shooting, idiots are blaming Obama for racism.


That smacks of the line domestic abusers use- they made me do it.

Empathy.... or not

I have always thought I was fairly empathetic- I honestly try to see the other side of a story in order to fully understand the issues. I understand the wish for smaller government and fiscal responsibility, and in fact, used to be Libertarian (until I grew up and started to understand human nature).

But with Trump supporters, I just do not get it. I cannot imagine, in any universe, thinking that this racist, misogynistic, narcissistic conman would be in ANY way suitable to be in charge of the nuclear launch codes, and to "lead" this country.

Just... no how, no way, not gonna happen.

Through the Looking Glass

A question.... How do you satirize something that is already a few notches past satire?
I speak , of course, of the present GOP. After years of "we make our own reality" they wind up with the perfect presidential candidate, one who simply makes stuff up on the fly- says whatever he needs to to make a point.
What is inconceivable to me is that a large minority of USians actually are fooled by this fool- in a through the looking glass moment, he even said he could shoot someone in the middle of the street and his follower would not care.

And he's right.

It seems a large portion of the modern "conservative" (yes, in air quotes) is so divorced from reality that all they need is someone who hurls third grade taunts, whines when he doesn't get his way, speaks at a grade school level (I'm being generous calling his speech patterns even grade school when they are, in fact, one step above the neanderthal grunt).

Meanwhile, we have global warming actually hurting these people- floods in Texas, daily tornadoes, wide spread coastal flooding, tropical diseases and insects spreading farther north, mass extinctions starting....
But, the most important issue is BEING ABLE TO DISCRIMINATE AGAINST SOMEONE.

'Ware the Splatter

At what point will the conservative mind simply implode or explode due to being subjected to the real world?
Now that they have their "The Donald", who completely embraces the "if I said it, it must be true (nevermind reality)" mindset as the front runner, all bets are off.

As long as they explode the other way.

Do I at least get Kissed?

Well, the Tea Party is well under way raping the people of the United States- starts at the local level, but now, thanks to the last election (stolen thanks to gerrymandering).
Typical libertarian acts- take advantage of what the society has built, without giving anything back. After all- it's all about ME.

The Grand Lie- "It's Your Money..."

Say something enough times, and people wear down and start to believe- like telling us "It's your money" when it comes to taxes.
I do believe that I can use the same rationalization to not pay any of my bills- I'll just write on Capital One statement "Sorry, it's my money, and you cannot have any".
We get tangible value from taxes paid- at least I know I drive on public roads, enjoy public fire and police protection, am protected by a public military, use utilities delivered over public lands via public infrastructure. I enjoy all of this because I am an American, and more than 200 years ago we decided to create a free society together E Pluribus Unum .

Bend over, There's a New Senate in Town....

So, the newly elected Senate wasted no time in starting to pay back their handlers and getting rid of those pesky Dreamers.... Ram through the Keystone XL by promising 42,000 jobs (a figure that smells as much as the 35 jobs the other side cites), interestingly enough, the pipeline will raise gas prices, if it manages to get any oil actually to the other end (Trans Canada has a rather poor record).
Desperately trying to convince people that they actually have an agenda other than "against Obama", which, of course, they do not.

Well, I guess we have the government we deserve, but I sure don't deserve the crop of current jerkwads, dead set on destroying the US government.
