What we are going through with this supposed government is so far beyond the pale it’s hard to discern up from down and down from up. You all know I’m 65 and in all my years I’ve seen nothing that comes close to what is happening now. Yes there was acrimony and a bunch of discourse in Congress that started back in the 80’s and really started when Carter was president. Not even when Nixon was president was it this bad in Congress. The difference now is that we don’t have a president willing to work with both sides to get anything done and we don’t have enough congressman willing to work together. The Republican party has been getting progressively worse since the 90’s and what we are seeing now is the culmination with their indifference for the citizens of the country. They are being aided by the “xtian fundies” and their far right theology they want us to bow down to their bullshit. All of this would not be happening if we had a president with common sense and any compassion at all for his fellow humans. But no, the foolish asshole white’s,and some POC in this country, that have the brains of a slug, elected a completely boorish, vile and non caring cretin as president. We know about the Russian collusion and the totally worthless unicorn sucking jackass but when it comes right down to it the people had a choice. More so I believe the last 30 years of demonizing Hillary by the right did more damage to Hillary’s chances becasue the right stepped up, and aided by the unicorn brigade, their rhetoric they’ve been chanting for 30 years and got idiots to believe in it.
I’ve been neglecting a lot of things lately becasue I’m exhausted and depressed. I’ve got problems here at home that I see no end to care of my lazy ass son and my DIL and have no answers to make my life any better. So I am going to take care of me for a little while which means, I’m sad to say, you won’t be seeing as much of me.
I’ll still do the TGIF thread every week and will pop in now and then.
Love each and every one of you all…You’ve kept me sane for the last 18 months…
Bravenak is one bad ass woman…Gotta LOL at her stuff….
"Hi. I'm Nomiki Konst, Jane's back-up singer. You might remember me from, "Wikipedia deleted me!" "Kicking it with Megyn Kelly" and "Ratfucking the DNC". I'm back with a new hit, "Hating on Joy Reid cause I ain't Joy Reid" buy it now so people can notice me. I need attention!"
This is going to be a brief one…good old lackadaisical Thanksgiving…Forgot yesterday was Thursday ..oops :)
Well it looks like bobby-three-sticks didn’t hear our call for action for any perp walks Wednesday. I’m gonna let him get away with it since we’ve come to find out Flynn is distancing himself from Thing meaning that he’s selling Thing down the river with no boat. Hopefully we’ll see some movement towards arrests this coming week.
If you're dead to rights, flipping on others and cooperating with the prosecution is the only sane and rational move. Also, prosecutors accept cooperation only if you can provide "substantial assistance." Higher up in the food chain. Stay tuned… https://t.co/ZtAxKGx8Wi
.@realDonaldTrump – you should be thankful for the work others did before you, otherwise, you'd have gone bald by now: zero bills passed, russian affairs, nepotism, anticlimate, lowest approval ever and constant threat to world peace. https://t.co/8l0IZMdwo7
Life is a hard as hell at all times but especially what we’ve had to endure the last 18 months and more to the point the last 12. I thought I was going to write some long spiel for this edition of TGIF, about Al Franken, and what this all means in the bigger picture but I just don’t have it in me right now…It all depressing as hell what we have to go through from one day to the next anymore so I’m just gonna put a few tweets up and let things progress as usual.
Another week of the fast and furious news cycle we seem to be caught in lately. Funny how becasue of Thing and his minions all the deplorables are coming out of the woodwork left and right. From adulterers to rapists to child molesters to outright criminals all being outed as what and who they are…Deplorable assholes.
Seems fitting that most if not all are Conservatives and getting what is coming to them. The morons speaking for them like this asshole are beyond anything I can make sense of…
Wow. This defense of Roy Moore from AL state Auditor Jim Ziegler:
"Take Joseph and Mary. Mary was a teenager and Joseph was an adult carpenter. They became parents of Jesus.”https://t.co/IhaWiCEFmq
The evangelical non christian right are showing their true colors in amazing and truly frightening ways and these are the people that want us to bow down to their way of thinking…Sorry, assholes, it ain’t happening, ever.
Maybe this is something that is good in all this mess…The worthless bastards are getting outed and we can bury them and be done with it. Not what anyone wanted to go through but it didn’t seem like it was going to happen until Trump. So thank you Thing for driving the deplorable people out of the woodwork out in to the light so we can get rid of them, including yourself.
I don’t think I would be saying this before Tuesday and our glorious trouncing that we administered on the Republicans and no Bernie, you didn’t have anything to do with it.
All of what happened Tuesday and with all of the deplorables looking at public shaming for their actions I’m looking at 2018 as a banner year for us. I can see the House and the Senate turning blue and putting a stop to any further damage and allowing us to retake the WH in 2020 and start to fix what the Republicans have fucked up once again.
I honestly did not think that any “conservatives” would stoop so low as to defend a pedophile. Wrong. There is no limit to how far they will go to win elections, no line they will not cross, no norms they will not transgress. There is a sickness in the land.

Legally, treason is aiding & abetting a declared enemy of the United States. We have not declared war against Russia, so Conspiracy to Commit Espionage is the appropriate legal terminology. Still a capital crime. Rosenberg's were executed for those crimes.
Rant time…Got to get this shit out of my system…I’m angry becasue of the asswipe we have in the WH…angry because of the dipshit Republicans that are doing nothing but having a circle jerk and letting the already mentioned asswipe ruin our way of life…angry at the MSM for normalizing the asswipe…we used to be able to depend on some of the media but it doesn’t seem as if that’s true anymore. Even reliable liberal media, not all, is untrustworthy from day to day.
I’ve been nice so far because Miss Hillary has been in my lap with her motor running…She got up and left…all semblance of nice has disappeared. :)
But most of all I am angry about the lack of anything resembling brains in the people that are supposed to be progressing our liberal agenda. Tom Perez has been a complete failure…what the fuck Ellison is doing is anyone’s guess since I haven’t heard him mentioned once since taking his position…The DNC might as well close shop becasue they have lost the base and with the lack of leadership won’t be getting the base back anytime soon…Donna Brazile can fuck off…Liz can fuck off…Bernie can fuck off and die and take all his rats with him. Any Democrat that demonizes Hillary or the base can fuck off including our estranged Uncle Joe. I’m too pissed off to pick out any more right now but they know who they are and will not be getting anything but ridicule moving forward.
Right now our aim should be to support Bob Mueller and his quest to tie all the motherfuckers up into knots and deliver them to jail. Our aim should be to support Democratic candidates running in their quest for office.
Thanks for the togetherness we’ve formed for the last year…I don’t believe I would have lasted the last year without you all…
It's simpler then that. Independent Socialist Bernie Sanders lost because he's a Independent Socialist not a Democrat. That's it that's all
Donna Brazile is lying about numerous aspects of the Democratic primary race, to try to make herself relevant to Bernie Sanders fans. Now Elizabeth Warren has fallen for Brazile's lies. What a shit show. All because Bernie & his fans can't handle that he lost by MILLIONS of votes
Well, the deflections are starting to get more absurd as the days progress. Once they brought Hillary deflections back we wonder if it’s becasue she’s back and getting more vocal and they want to denounce what Hillary is saying by trying to stifle her? Me thinks they are wasting their time as Hillary isn’t going away and all it’s going to do is make us fight them that much harder. If anything it’s going to show the truth that Hillary is who we know her to be and it’s going to end up showing everything they’ve said about her for the last 30 years are all lies.
I expect the deflections to become an everyday thing with the craziest yet to come. Trump is guilty as sin and more people are starting to realize that. I’m wondering when there is going to be an investigation in the death of Abraham Lincoln. I’m sure the Republicans and Trump will try to make a case that it was the Democrats who shot Lincoln. Anything to waste money and try and get everyone to forget Trump is even in the White House. Of course that a fools errand since Trump can’t shut up long enough to let one of his stupidities to sink in before a new one passes his lips.
So the next few weeks are looking good for our side as long as we keep the pressure on Trump and the Repukes.
Morning meese…Sorry about last week..First time for everything I suppose…Back to my old irritable self…
Seems we can’t go one damn day without something stupid happening. This is mostly because we have an empty headed buffoon in the WH but we’ve been seeing this be the norm for decades as the Conservative right has gotten worse with every day, month and year since President Clinton was in office. Now that their plans to take over the Gov’t by cheating is being derailed, since they sold their souls to Russia to get the deplorable Bum elected and their rottenness is front and center, we are being given a fighting chance to shove them back under the rocks they slithered out from.
Us meese, being endowed with mega common sense and a love for all, have seen this shift coming on and have fought against the take over. We succeeded with electing Bill and Barack but have been derailed by a bunch of fools otherwise. The fools say they stand with us and then ruin everything because of their puritanical bullshit. They have been thorns in out sides to getting a country that works for everyone. You know all the suspects…Sarandon has pulled her head out of her ass to run her mouth in 2000 and 2016. She needs to go to the garbage bin. We need to shut Bernie and his rats down which I see is gaining momentum as they keep getting foot in mouth disease.
Things are looking up as Barack and Hillary are back and showing they are the grownups while Bum and the Republicans are showing they haven’t a clue. Our voices have made a difference. Let’s keep going forward together.
Oh yeah…Great damn thread…
Can’t I dislike Bernie not because of Hillary, but because he’s a self-centered, “independent” ass who’s tone-deaf on non-economic issues
Obama in Virginia on Charlottesville/statues: "If we’re going to talk about our history, then we should do it in a way that heals, not in a way that wounds, not in a way that divides. We shouldn’t use the most painful parts of our history just to score political points." pic.twitter.com/ClDsOa9hQs

It sickens me that the right is trying to make liberals, @HillaryClinton and @BarackObama all out to be criminals simply because a liberal named Harvey Weinstein was accused of sexual harassment. We are as against his misdeeds as anyone, if not more, you fools!
Morning meese…Reading “What Happened” is cathartic. I can hear Hillary reading me the words as if she’s with me. It’s truly amazing in that I’ve read a couple 1000 books but never have read one until now where I’ve gotten the feeling that the author was actually reading it to me instead of me just reading. I’ve gotten similar feelings reading some of the books I’ve read before but this is just different and richly rewarding.
From “What Happened”
I want to be thoroughly used up when I die, for the harder I work, the more I live. Life is no “brief candle” to me. It is a sort of splendid torch which I have got hold of for the moment;and I want to make it burn as brightly as possible before handing it on to future generations.

So now it’s on to the Bum’s tax plan. His plan to screw all of us and award the 1% becasue they are so demonized.

Morning Meese, I got my copy of “What Happened” yesterday. I’ve read the first 30 pages and have gone through all the emotions…Love, hate, compassion, anger, happiness, sadness, optimism..Just in those first pages you can feel Hillary conveying them in her words. Going to be hell getting through this book I can see already. By page 21 I had already had to pull the tissues out. I think it will be cathartic for all of us to read it as I am sure it was for Hillary writing it. I can see by the time I finish I’ll probably be as angry as I’ve ever been by what has been taken from us but hopefully energized to push forward, stronger together.
The insidious bastards on the right will try anything to ram their crap down our throats…I say bullshit.
