Proof of Life

Just touching base. What would they call this? A “proof of life” post.

I am so outraged. Past infuriation. Smack dab in the middle of mossy exhaustion.

Stupidity is truly a formidable opponent, and if in some Bizzaro world they could hand out PhD’s in stupidity, the GOP would be the most highly credentialed political party in the history of the earth.

It just never ends with the GOP, their childishness.

I don’t even know where to begin.

Like, we just saw a guy lying in a hospital bed, recovering from Covid, telling a news crew that if he had it to do over, he still wouldn’t take the vaccine. Because he doesn’t believe in government.

Covid’s on the rise again. Of course, mostly in red state Trump strongholds. Places where vaccination rates are just above 32%.

And they’re blaming…I don’t know…pretty much everyone but themselves.

Then that stunt with Kevin McCarthy nominating Jim Jordan to Pelosi’s January 6th investigation. He could have appointed a gob of spit…on a hankie…and it wouldn’t have been more insulting

Then, when Pelosi rejected Jordan’s appointment…which everybody knew was the only sane thing to do…McCarthy threw a fit, pulled all five of his Republican nominees, and accused Pelosi of playing political games.

I mean, geez, it just doesn’t get any more…deceitful than that.

Then there’s Senator Rand Paul M.D. (not a real doctor) who wants to arrest Dr. Fauci (a real doctor) and blame him personally for the pandemic.

And now Trump’s cabal of congressional loyalists want to blame the January 6th insurrection on Nancy Pelosi, of all people, claiming she was responsible for security—which she was not—which is a fact that’s been easily proven and reported a dozen times now…but they continue with the lies and accusations anyway.

Trump is still claiming the election was stolen from him and spreading a whisper campaign that he’ll be reinstated next month, in August.

Guys like Tucker Carlson are praising Trump for helping develop the vaccine…then turning around and discouraging people from taking the vaccine.

?????

This is just crazy town, and it’s hard to take.

The Dems should just start lying to the Republican base. Forget all the wedge issues, just tell them what they want to hear. Guns for everybody! No abortions for anybody, and no money for the brat once he’s born! Jesus is King of Everything, especially Johnny’s Discount Appliance Service.

Remember…if it’s not cheap, it’s not Johnny’s!

God, Guns & Idiots

Rep. Madison Cawthorn says the ‘mechanisms’ needed to execute President Biden’s plan for door-to-door outreach in areas with low COVID-19 vaccination rates could eventually be used to take guns and Bibles.

I am so sick of these assholes.

That’s a really good way of cutting to the chase and finding out whether or not someone is an idiot.

If they’re all in for guns & God, they’re probably idiots….

…and assholes.

*****

I can see some folks hearing about this and rolling their eyes and saying “Aw, come on. It’s no big deal. It’s just Republicans being Republican again.”

And they may be right.

But let’s remember that roughly 1/4th to 1/3rd of Cawthorn’s political base is going to believe him, and about one out of ten of that lot will be unstable enough to possibly shoot and kill a social worker who knocks on their door asking if they’ve been vaccinated or not.

(corporations always come first in the USA…and how many of us own a corporation?)

(the stupidity is truly bottomless)

Total BS

(cannabis banned in 1998 Olympics)

Robbed.

She was robbed.

Piece of shit white trash dudes robbed this talented young woman.

Sha’Carri Richardson.

Fastest woman alive.

Smoked a little pot.

Ostracized.

What fucking shit.

So mad I could spit.

*****

Cannabis has been banned at the Olympics for two decades, ever since Canadian snowboarder Ross Rebagliati tested positive for THC (the psychoactive component of marijuana that induces a “high”) in 1998, and had his gold medal taken away as a result.

We Know What Happened

We already know what happened on January 6th, 2021 at our nation’s capitol.

The Republicans tried to overthrow our country.

We know it—and they obviously know it—which is why they steadfastly refuse to investigate the chain of events that lead to a few hundred yahoos breaking into our capitol with little or no opposition.

Surprise, Surprise….

OSU study: Conservatives more susceptible to misinformation than liberals

Anyone who has spent five minutes talking to a Trumpie–or any Republican for that matter–has known this ugly fact for twenty years. It goes all the way back to when they believed Bush and Rumsfeld’s lies about WMDs in Iraq.

From the article: For example, 41% of Republicans believed the false claim that Hillary Clinton colluded with Russia and sold part of the U.S. uranium supply in exchange for donations to the Clinton Foundation. Just 2% of Democrats said it was true.

Conservatives are gullible.

They’re gullible because they don’t know how to think.

They believe that their opinions are just as good as anybody’s.

Conservatives’ consistently poor performance in distinguishing truths from falsehoods appears to be largely explained by the fact that widely shared falsehoods were systematically more supportive of conservatives’ political positions,” the authors wrote.

I.E. they were pandered to.

I argue with conservatives a lot while I’m online. I know better than to think I’ll ever change their minds, but I do know that sometimes there are people who are on the fence about a given issue, and I can win them over if my argument is convincing enough.

Often times it is, and people have told me that.

I’ll argue with a conservative as long as I know that other people are listening to the conversation, but I just give up and block the idiot if it’s a one-on-one debate, because that’s about the most frustrating activity in the world.

It’s like catching a kid red-handed stealing from the cookie jar, but the kid just continuously denies it.

“But Donny, I saw you do it.”

“No you didn’t.”

“Your mom saw you steal those cookies, too.”

“Nuh, uh.”

“Yes she did. We even have pictures of you doing it. Look.”

“That’s not me.”

“I have your fingerprints.”

“No you don’t.”

Etcetera, etcetera….

They’re gonna be the death of us, conservatives, Republicans.

The followers believe anything that they’re told, and the leaders (Fox News and the GOP et al.) can’t open their mouths without lying.

I’m at a loss. I see no end to it all.

They are constantly on the attack.
