Trumpski Treasonovich is WWWalker on Stupidity Steriods!

How much an idiot does one have to be to buy the Trumpladyte's HELLSINKY "Was/Wasn't" bullshit in context of the public/private hours he spent licking Putin Poisonov's balls?

IS there a more bald faced LIE in the history of American Presidents?

I don't even know what to say anymore and it doesn't even matter because the diarrhea never ceases and there's nothing to be done about!

Bushyboy was fucking awful, but the awful stupid shit oozed out every few days or so. We're down to every few hours now!

I blame, in part, Wrong Way Walker and the Badgered State Corrupticons. They came up with this Blitzkrieg assault on decency and democracy. Do so much damage so fast that the public and the opposition start reacting to one atrocity and before that gets rolling, there's another one and another one and . . . then they don't even know what to . . . wait a minute . . . what happened exactly? 

Am I giving the Trumpladyte too much credit? Probably, after all he IS a Fucking Moron! Not there's anything wrong with that!

Pall gets More Family Time - We get LESS!

My Wife was just forced to full time at work because of Pall Ryand and the rest of his @$$oul pals and their incessant attack on our healthcare. So she lost her day off. The day off that she used to help her Mother, that she could have used to help my Mother, the day she might have taken care of a future grandchild, the day she did things for our Family and for herself. This is a concrete and highly negative impact to our family from Pall and the "Family Value$ Folk$"! And we're just one among Millions.

Why was she FORCED to do this? To put me on her employer's healthcare plan. Because in Republicon America we must be shackled to our master's plans for our health and retirement, if it's offered at all. The extra money will be slightly nice, but as a social worker, my Wife doesn't make that much anyway, because working to help people is not a valued endeavor in America, so it's definitely not worth the loss of family time, especially because it will eat into my work time, which is most of our income. This is already adding stress to our lives, and her having to pay this price for my healthcare is naturally raising marital tensions. But hey "Family Value$"!

Obamacare (ACA) has been a good option for us. Two of my children and I went on Obamacare (ACA) in 2013 when my former employer eliminated health insurance. Obamacare was cheaper and better anyway and I was able to continue working there, which was my preference, rather than changing jobs just for insurance.

Now I've been able to be self-employed for 2.5 years because of Obamacare, but apparently that type of enterprise isn't of sufficient value to the GOPsters for them to come up with a a viable solution to healthcare in this country. On the contrary, these racists have been hell bent on destroying this healthcare option for millions of Americans that was first implemented by MA. Gov. Mitt Romney and was hatched by the conservative Heritage Foundation. Never mind that, the Black, Indo-Kenyan, Secret Muslim did it and so it must be eliminated despite the collateral damage to millions of Americans.

So we can't be secure in the idea that Obamacare will be there for me next year (even though just as many people signed up this year as last despite the Trumpadyte's efforts). Hence my wife having to sacrifice her time for my physical health and our financial well being while the opportunity existed.

So while Pall Ryand will be spending MORE time with his Family, WE will be spending LESS with ours. Thank you very fucking much you piece of Crap!

Now go cash in on your many @$$oul connections Pall, while we continue to struggle and adjust and hope we can keep our heads above water long enough to get to retirement age in the coming decade or so. Think of all the $300 bottles of wine in your future now! At least you won't be around to fuck that up too, you Debt Piling, Wealth Worshiping Idolator!

Mark Twain was Right About Social Media

Mark Twain is reputed to have said; "A lie can travel halfway round the world while the truth is putting on its shoes." Ironically it was not Mr. Clemens, but someone named Charles Haddon Spurgeon. That made it no less true then and all the more salient today with the Twits and the FaceFooks. 

According to an MIT study of Twitter, falsehoods travel at light speed (up to 100,000) shares, while the truth slinks along on the solar wind (1,000).

I'm not on Twitter thankfully, so I can't comment on the propensity for propaganda on that platform, but I would be astounded if it's worse than the FaceFooks. And since all my snowflake friends in the Cult of Con have unfriended me to avoid confrontations with facts, I don't see much of what constitutes FaceFook "news" over on that side of the aisle anymore. But if it's anything like that which is passed around by my liberal friends (and I know from past experience that it's worse) then we are a nation divided less by the truth and more by lies. For example, I'm seeing many of my liberal cohort on the FaceFooks poo-pooing Russian meddling because HILLARY! DNC! a "logic" that fails to recognize that two things can be true simultaneously, but salves the need for self-reinforcement. But hey they're in "good" company with FuxSnooze, Five Deferments Donny and the Trumpladyte horde!

According to a Pew Research Center survey, 67% of Americans get news from social media, with FaceFook by far accounting for the lion's share. One cannot successfully run a Republic on falsehoods and still promote the general welfare, so We the People are in deep trouble. If we don't wake up and get some media savvy we're screwed!

So here are some good rules of thumb:

  • Use lots of critical thinking and healthy skepticism when consuming news;
  • Use multiple sources on important subject matters, skewed to serious journalists from entities that employ journalistic standards;
  • If it's from a partisan source, it's almost certainly not the Truth, the Whole Truth and Nothing but the Truth;
  • TV is a good source for news about the weather;
  • If it sounds too weird to be true be very skeptical;
  • If it's on social media be very very skeptical;
  • is NOT a credible source of information!
  • And for Cripe Sakes double check the veracity of information to avoid spreading crap around the interwebs and polluting the "brains" of your fellow Americans. It's your patriotic duty!
