The GOP is actually PROUD to say that they're using poor, sick children as a bargaining chip. It's hard to imagine how these guys sleep at night.

House Republicans are attempting to entice Democrats to vote for the continuing resolution by including a provision to extend the Children's Health Insurance Program (Chip) for six years.

Chip, which provides healthcare for nine million children, is near the top of Democrats' wish list. (BBC)

It's just fucking amazing how heartless these fuckwads are. Money. It's all they care about. That and power. Children can die in the streets for all they care, as long as they can get their way.

GOP. The party of no shame. No shame at all.


Because if there's no medical explanation for his behavior then it's calculated and deliberate.

US President Donald Trump has shown no abnormal signs following a cognitive exam and is in excellent health, his White House doctor says.

"I have no concerns about his cognitive ability or neurological functions," Ronny Jackson said on Tuesday. (BBC)

By all accounts Dickhead acts like a psychotic, spoiled toddler who needs constant attention and gratification. So if it's not cognitive decline then he really IS just a selfish fucktard with no regard for anyone other than himself.

Kinda what I suspected all along.


Pregnancy is a bother, so if you have money why not have someone else suffer the stretchmarks, pain, dietary restrictions, lack of sleep, frequent potty trips, oh and all the associate health risks.

Jan. 16 (UPI) -- Celebrity couple Kim Kardashian and Kanye West have welcomed a daughter via surrogate.

The 37-year-old reality star and 40-year-old rapper expressed their gratitude in a post on Kardashian's website Tuesday after their surrogate gave birth to a baby girl. [..]

Kardashian and West confirmed in September that they were expecting their third child. Sources told Entertainment Tonight last week the couple are "fully prepared and can't wait to bring their baby home."

There's something just gross about the whole surrogate-because-we-can thing. It's not like they don't have enough money to pamper her during a pregnancy, rather she already HAD the experience and decided that being pregnant again wasn't going to get her any more publicity. So why bother? Having a baby isn't a life changing event when you're only going to pay for other people to raise your kid anyway.

I guess it's truly a Kardashian value, if there's no money in it why bother...


Destiny 2: Should I Buy It?

So, Destiny 2... you're thinking of buying it eh? But it's a bit over your budget for a "try and fail" kinda buy. I get that. So here's my review after playing the game for 2 months: It's "OK" if you have friends to play it with, but if you're just doing it for solo grats then maybe wait until a sale or until you have friends that want to play it.


Destiny 2 DOES have a story, but you can blast through it in a matter of hours. Once you're done with that you need to level your gear and weps for about 8 to 10 hours at which point you won't get squashed like a bug in the rest of the content: strikes, pvp and heroic adventures. Once you get there (Yay! I have decent armor and weapons, let me at 'em!) you discover that there's no new content... but that's ok because it's not "old" yet. But it does get repetitive fast and without friends to raid with and do heroic level things you can wind up with rando-assholes who will leave you stuck in the middle of a firefight-quagmire you can't get out of as they run off to complete the mission without you.

So much fun. No. No, not really.

So about Destiny 2, it's got good graphics, it's got an entertaining story (all 3 hours of it) and it's got extra missions and events (about 3 - 5 days of novelty) and then... not so much. Also there's the whole "do you want pretty, shiny gear" thing. See they thought of that, and there's a mechanic for it, but it costs real money. It's called "Eververse" and that, along with the expensive DLCs is the main way you get any of the nice, fancy shit that you see other players running around with. Don't ask too many questions, Eververse is universally loathed as the thinly disguised, pure-greed of Bungie. Please, even if you do buy the game, don't fall into the trap of microtransactions, it will only make you hate yourself in the morning.

So is end game really that dullsville? Why yes, yes it is. In fact it's so fucking dull, and PVP is so damn stupid that the devs FORCE you to play stuff you hate in order to level up to where you can really compete. It's called weekly's. "Complete X things you hate in PVP for POWERFUL gear". That also goes for broken-ass skills too "Complete X things using a skill no one ever uses because it sucks to get an achievement which will get you POWERFUL gear."

On the other hand if you're ok with grinding, getting the same boring loot over and over, getting your ass handed to you in PVP as well as "team" events where "team" means every man for himself, then Destiny 2 is for you. It's pretty, but the gameplay needs help. And the devs? Well, they have one more DLC worth of attention span before the community evaporates... after that it'll probably get cheaper and worth buying.


Kirsti is a cunt. She claims that the division, hatred and utter dissolution of civility in our government makes us "better off". She believes that a misogynist who would happily tell her that she's too ugly to fuck is the best choice for the leader of the US. Kristi probably takes a double handful of anti-depressants in the morning in order to keep up appearances.

Cat needs help. Her grip on reality comes from Faux News. She appears to believe that she's getting THOUSANDS back in taxes. Cat hasn't actually filed yet, but she's excited!!!1! Also, fucking over the delicate situation between the Palestinians and Israel makes her wet. Yes, it's SO exciting when you don't understand the complexities of international politics to believe that unilateral decisions without consensus equates to a solution. Cat also needs a retouch on her botox.

Chris at least admits that tRump is a liar, but hey, in his world that's ok? I mean who really needs a politician or even a president that's truthful? I mean hell, America is returning to the "classic American style" just like when Nixon was in charge.

Jim is all about greed. He wants money. He wants more money than anyone else. As long as the stockmarket keeps rocking the rest of the nation can go fuck itself.

Congrats on your fame fuckwads! It's great to know who you are, I look forward to meeting you sometime in the future when I get to express MY editorial response to your comments.


The only shithole the President needs to be concerned about is the one between his nose and chin. Of course others put it more succinctly...

And Idaho Republican Mike Simpson told The Associated Press that Trump's remarks were "stupid and irresponsible and childish."

"He's president of the United States. That's not how a president behaves," Simpson said. "And for all of those people out there that are enamored with Trump's behavior and think this is no big deal, well shame on them. This is a big deal. America's influence and power in the world has really been about our ability to persuade because of our leadership, and he's just destroying that."(AP)

And there ARE people defending this scumbag, "pastors" even. If you can call them that, because in reality, true men of God don't hate, much less use derogatory comments about other cultures and nations.

The Rev. Robert Jeffress of First Baptist Dallas says that, apart from the reported choice of words, "Trump is right on target in his policy."

Robert Jeffress can go fuck himself.

But you know, regardless of Dickhead's stupidity, the icing is his lying about what he said and then immediately defending himself.

President Donald Trump has privately defended his remarks disparaging Haitians and African countries, saying he was only expressing what many people think but won't say about immigrants from economically depressed countries.

Dickhead? You're an asshole. You're the real fucking shithole this nation has to deal with. And to the rest of the world? Once again, I'm sorry.

Goddamn but it's getting tiresome having to apologize for this moron.


You know I feel for this guy, I really do. Here I am, seated at home where at least I can hide my embarrassment amongst my equally horrified peers but this poor guy, he has to represent US professionally. It's more than any rational person can do.

The US ambassador to Panama has quit because he says he is no longer able to serve under President Donald Trump.

John Feeley, a former Marine Corps helicopter pilot, said he was "honour-bound" to resign.

The US Department of State, which oversees American diplomats, learned of his resignation in late December. (BBC)

The Department of State is fucked. Employees old and new are leaving in droves, driven away by the sheer incompetence in their department and fostered by "the man at the top". Tillerson is inept, at best, or evil at worst. He doesn't allow records of key conversations, which are technically mandated by law, to be documented.

Of course, if there was nothing to hide, nothing to be ashamed of, nothing illegal going on why not have records? Gosh, I wonder.

However some government employees actually have a conscience, and for them working in a government of chaos, stupidity, intolerance, and ignorance is more than they can manage. No matter what the money or position means to them personally.

I'm sorry John Feeley, that it had to be like this. And at least I appreciate your service.


Like a toddler screaming "no, no, no" to bedtime, Dickhead has a problem with anything he doesn't like. Only he doesn't scream "no, no, no" rather idiot labels things as "fake". To be fair, with his degree of mental illness he can only really keep track of things in two categories "great" and "fake". There's also "bad" but that's just used to mix things up and prove to people that his brain isn't in a similar state as an abandoned kitchen sponge found at the back of the cabinet under the sink.

Actually that analogy is pretty dead-on.

But Dickhead is who he is and the delusional/message-senders who thought he was just *pretending* to be craze were deluded themselves. By now everyone with any sanity knows full well that Dickhead is crazy as a coot and a danger to himself and others. By now the fear and shock of his election has worn off and everyone just grips their chair with increasing anxiety in the hope that nothing goes nuclear and the stupidity emanating from the white house is just absorbed by the continuing in-capacitance of the Senate.

Of course there ARE people who are still happy that the loony-toon (sorry, apologies to WB) was elected, and THEY are a special class themselves: the religious right. These are people who have convinced themselves that all the evil this person physically represents (greed, promiscuity, sloth... you know the whole lot of seven) somehow is a demonstration of their deity's gracious love. Yes, the devil himself with orange hair (hint, hint) shows up saying everything they want to hear and they LOVE him enough to praise him at their holiday meals and prayers.

On the surface that might seem contradictory to a rational, normal human being but one has to remember, these are people who still hold onto the belief that Jesus is the son of a patriarchal god who (somehow) was born from a human virgin (and also the world was created in seven days, the list goes on). Basically these people are as delusional as Dickhead and happy to have someone as fucked up and irrational as themselves in charge because it validates their overly-vocal world view.

One the one hand, good for them, they're having their day. On the other, good for us, because wasting time, effort, friendship, support and sustenance to people who would rather pray over your corpse instead of saving your life is a valuable wakeup call.

The problem with rationality is that it comes with a set of moral standards which answer to THE highest authority: yourself. You live, day in and out with the memory of what you did right and wrong and no one saying "oh it's ok, just give me money and you can forget you were horrible" is going to make it better. The real challenge is to realize that not everyone out there is like you, and no everyone deserves the benefits you can provide. This is not justification for being evil to someone, but it is justification for walking away when you know they're using religion as a crutch to justify their own evil, willful ignorance and arrogance. Message simplified: fuck them, fuck religious, dogmatic freaks and know them by what they say "reality is fake and gods bless tRump."

Cliffy B. - Still An Asshole
And his little dog-turd Mark Rein too.

Hur Hur Hur

Followed immediately by "dur, dur, dur".

WASHINGTON (AP) -- President Donald Trump, portrayed in a new book as a leader who doesn't understand the weight of his office, took to Twitter on Saturday to defend his mental fitness and boast about his intelligence, saying he is "like, really smart" and "a very stable genius."

Yes Dickhead, you smart. You very smart. So smart. Big smart. Best smart. Great!


It was bigger than guns. Bigger than bombs. Bigger than missiles. What was it? It was probably the biggest, best and most bloodless coup the former USSR could have ever pulled off...

Jan. 3 (UPI) -- The Russian Ministry of Defense usually releases a video on New Year's to show off their deadly weapons. But this year, they showed off their adorable puppies.

The video's title is Faithful Friends congratulate you on the coming New Year and the puppies come from the Russian military's Training Center for Service Dog Breeding No. 470.

Yes, in a single, subtle and insidious move the Russian Military flexed its might and reduced the world to "awwwwwe". Well done generals, well done. We have no counter for that... yet. But I'm sure we'll find some sort of catastrophic tools to come to our defense...


Because they can. And, goddamnit, they fucking well should.

More than 300 actresses, writers and directors have launched a project to help fight sexual harassment in the film industry and other workplaces.

The initiative, which is called Time's Up, was announced via a full-page advert printed in the New York Times.

The Hollywood project is described as a "unified call for change from women in entertainment for women everywhere".[..]

The money raised will be used to fund legal support for both female and male victims of sexual harassment at work.

The project is aimed primarily at those who are unable to meet the payments to defend themselves, such as agricultural or factory workers, caretakers and waitresses. (BBC)

Maybe they didn't get paid as much as their male counterparts, maybe they didn't get as many lines, maybe they didn't even get as many opportunities as they got older but they have money, a cause and initiative. Females, human and non, tend to band together when threatened. Maybe it took a little longer for humans, rather than monkeys or panthers, to realize the threat, but they have and they've gained courage from each other. A time of isolationism and silent tolerance of misogyny is over and women will help women.

At least sane ones who WANT the world to be better for their sisters (aka, not Twats for tRump.)

It's been almost a year since the Pink Pussy Uprising (aka Women's March) where women (and men) showed the world just what they thought of the mistake their nation made. Since then changes, small and large, have been sprouting like spring weeds in the winter of American discontent. Winter will end eventually, but the weeds, the change, the fury and the future will be different. And the most powerful, famous and capable women are taking point. Fear them.


Motto For 2018

Dickhead Donald Tweets: No One Cares.

We're pretty much saturated with the stupid. Next up, more GOP excuse-mongering which results in America not caring for another three years.


Shmuley wants to shame a woman for speaking her mind. Shmuley can go fuck himself.

Lorde has been branded a "bigot" in a full-page ad in the Washington Post - a week after the New Zealand star cancelled a concert in Israel.

The ad, published in the New Year's Eve edition, was placed by US rabbi Shmuley Boteach.

It accuses the 21-year-old of joining "a global anti-Semitic boycott of Israel".[..]

The ad features an image of Lorde superimposed onto a picture of men running through war torn scenes while carrying babies. (BBC)

Fuckface Shmuley thinks (mistakenly) that a mashup of MEN carrying babies over rubble will suddenly: change global support for Lorde, change global opinion about Israel, and probably make him (Shmuley) famous. Well he sure got that part right. You're famous, good Sir, as a terrible person supporting terrible views in a terrible way.

Next time, if you have a problem with someone, try fucking DIALOGUE ya damn dipshit. Because by now everyone KNOWS that Israel is an apartheid nation of intolerance run by jewish-jihadis. Duh.


If you're not an asshole to people you don't know.
If you're not greedy for stuff you already have plenty of.
If you take the time to THINK about what you hear, rather than just embracing it because you want to believe.
If you're aware of how your actions impact others.
If you're willing to embrace change for the betterment of everyone else rather than yourself.
If you're not Dickhead Donald or one of his loathesome fans.
If you're willing to be friends with someone you haven't even met.
If you think America The Future can be better than America The Past.

If those things, then Happy New Year to you. Let's get going, there's a LOT of work to do.


It's been a hate fueled year. Hating and haters. Anger and arrogance. The First Year of the Great Ignorance is almost over, what I predict will be the last year of the Great White Hurrah, where ignorance and short-sighted white males rallied together in middle and southern states to proclaim their fat, florid anger at being white males. Not sexy. Not smart. Just a vast army of Archie Bunkers who wanted to BELIEVE they were Burt Reynolds, JFK and Daniel Boone all wrapped into one. Not balding. Not lame. Not a soon-to-be minority of never-was rather than has-been's.

White, patriarchal America moved to assisted living over a decade ago, but there are lots of folks who never got the memo, lots of folks who would rather see America crumble, anarchy and perverse, pathological "leadership" than the continuation of it's natural evolution. A nation of immigrants was Ok back when their ancestors came here, but not now, because "we're full", "why do we need more people", "america first". The same shit-stupid mentality that prevailed just before the Japanese bombed Pearl Harbor. Because isolationism worked SO fucking well back then, and SO fucking well now, decades later when we're even more connected around the world than ever before.

It's too fucking late to turn back, unless all you fat, white, drawling, drooling fuckers are willing to turn off your TVs and throw away your cell phones. I DARE you to try. I really do.

I read recently that when violence is inflicted on those who would choose not to be violent, that it becomes the new standard. After decades of vitriol the passivist-liberal, the home maker and brownie baker, the African-american matriarch and mother took up arms and started flipping the bird to assholes proudly sporting tRump stickers on their bumpers. Hate came to America to remind EVERYONE that it's not a value but a reaction that everyone is entitled to, even those who prefer to use their words rather than their fists.

So here's to you, tRump voter, your success, your failed relationships and your bleak future where you will forever be remembered for what you are: a failure. The year may be almost over, but the hate lingers on.

Just kidding, I can do both. Just looking for excuses for being lazy. That's another lie, I just hate looking at the news so much I don't. At least when I'm on holiday.
