Because EVERY toddler should have a gun.
DELTONA, Fla. (AP) -- A woman who left her child unattended in a vehicle in the parking lot of a Florida church's school has been charged with felony child neglect after the 3-year-old boy found her loaded handgun and pulled the trigger, sheriff's deputies said.
PHOENIX (AP) -- The parents of a 9-year-old boy who was shot in the head in their Phoenix home put off calling 911 as they cleaned up evidence in multiple rooms of the house, police said Wednesday, calling it a case that "shocks your conscience."
It's tRump-merica! Everyone should have a gun! Every single person, including babies and fetuses. Because GUNS MAKE EVERYTHING BETTER.
Except for dead people. But they don't count.
Remember that "guy" who said America doesn't need foreign workers, rah rah? Well turns out rah rah don't cut it in reality.
CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. (AP) -- As President Donald Trump touts job creation for Americans as a top priority, his son's Virginia winery is seeking permission to hire foreign workers to cultivate its grapes.
That's right the good ol' flag-waving, fist-pumping, made-right-here with American labor isn't. Not when it comes to menial fucking jobs like picking grapes. Oh sure it SOUNDS good, and it sure sounded good to the suckers that bought into the notion that the US could operate just fine without foreign labor. Until guess what, no one applies for the job.
"It's difficult to find people," said Libby Whitley, an attorney who has worked with employers, including Trump Winery, on labor issues.[..] Whitely said she assumed her company would be flooded with people applying for the jobs because of the media coverage of the winery's initial request.
"Guess how many applicants we had? ... 13," she said. "And they were all from places like the Philippines, Indonesia, Kenya, Nigeria. We did not have one American worker apply on (the first job order)."
Yeah, that's the ACTUAL reality. Sure American's want jobs... just not THOSE jobs. You know the hard ones, where you have to sweat your balls off in the sun planting, pruning and picking. That's what we need cheap foreigners for, those we want to keep on the other side of the wall.
Goddamn people are fucking stupid.
Travis you're a dick. Actually no make that a dildo. Wait, no again, make that smegma, you know the yellowish stuff that smells really, really bad. Yep, that's about right.
The nude photo scandal has revealed to the public an age-old divide inside the Corps, where some Marines flatly reject the idea that the world’s most respected warriors should be judged for behavior that is unfamiliar or unsettling to most civilians.
One former Marine and member of the Marines United website at the center of the scandal offered a forceful defense of Marines and the conduct under scrutiny.
“We were only created to fight and win wars. We’re not some polite gentleman society. We are proud savages!” Travis Lee Hamrick told Marine Corps Times in an email.
“We love war, and we pray that we get selected for the combat deployments. Truth be told, we really just don’t fit in with civilians, whining over which bathrooms to use in America. We certainly couldn’t care less about politics anymore,” said Hamrick, who spent ten years in the Corps, leaving as a corporal. He now lives in South Carolina. (Marine Times)
First off, my apologies to South Carolina, because there isn't a state in the Union that you should live in. What you need is a rock, preferably outside the Union, like maybe on an uninhabited island somewhere. Empty. No other humans. Because you basically admitted that you're a misanthrope. Or psychotic. Probably both.
I'm very glad, however, that you couldn't care less about politics. That's a great thing. I hope you don't vote too, because your views are so far out of the mainstream that you really need to be kept far away from society, one that depends on decency and respect. It certainly doesn't need a fucktard like you going around with the urge to strangle everything that pisses you off. THAT GUY CUT ME OFF - KILL HIM. THAT WOMAN LOOKS FUNNY - KILL HER. Nope, we don't need any of that. Or you, for that matter.
Know how veterans are often greeted with "thank you for your service"? Right? Not in your case. It's "No thanks, sorry you served. Really, it's amazing the military survived your participation."
Yep, that about sums it up fuckwad.
So I keep encountering this theme: "Everyone else is intolerant and I'm just the victim here. I'm nice, I don't tell other people to shut up. I don't threaten them, they threaten me. I'm ironic, not mean when it comes to making political points, just laugh it off." In a nutshell these people are deniers, they deny that they've ever been rude, offensive, insensitive or aligned with political viewpoints that dole that out by the double handful. "I'm not an ultra-white-right-winger, I just think they're Right that's all."
I really like all those same folks who then point the finger at liberal anger, taking to the streets in protest when decades of anti-black, anti-gay, anti-woman, anti-immigrant anger didn't lead to deaths, abuse, burnings, tauntings, and killings. OMG LIBERULS HOW DARE YOU.
Right. How dare they.
It's not like they put bullseyes on their democratic opponents. Nor abused women in positions of authority. Nor mocked the first lady for being black. Imprisoned people for being gay. Or shot blacks in churches, or their own cars. No, that's white privileged and it's god-fucking-given, not hard-assed-earned.
So here's a message to the "bystander-white-right." You can't hide behind your little curtain because it's so fucking thin everyone can see right through it. Think you NEVER said anything offensive? Think again, you did, that time you were drunk, comfortable, unaware, accidentally honest, brutally honest, sarcastic honest, whatever. You're not part of the problem? Like fuck you're not. Just because you're not wearing the hood doesn't mean you wouldn't put one on if no one else was looking.
Guess what. It is you. And lot of people just like you. And if it bothers you that you're losing friends maybe, just maybe, you need to take a look at yourself and think about what other people see when they look at you. And if that doesn't bother you? Well, then what's there to feel bad about?
Now Cuntyway can have her cunty-hubby around too, both sucking the government titty for all they can.
March 18 (UPI) -- President Donald Trump has nominated George Conway III, husband of Trump's counselor Kellyanne Conway, to fill a key post at the Justice Department, according to multiple media reports.
You have to hand it to Dickhead, he does right by those who are stupid enough and dedicated enough to embarrass themselves and this nation in his name.
Never have so many given so much for so few.
But that's only because they've just begun...
When he doesn't want to face the actual WORK of being president what does he do? Go back to campaigning. Maybe that way the grass will stay greener...
NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) -- President Donald Trump is returning to the road, rallying supporters to recapture the enthusiasm of his campaign and reassuring them about his tumultuous early days in the White House.[..] In Trump's rally telling, things in Washington are going great. He's been cracking down on illegal immigration, is "way ahead of schedule" on his southern border wall and is on the verge of passing a new health care plan that "does so much for you."
Dickhead has a really hard time with actually sitting down and doing the work and who can blame him? Work is HARD. It means THINKING. It means REASONING. These are things that Dickhead doesn't want to do because they're not fun. Worse! People have been cracking down on his fun all over the place (how dare they.) Dickhead tweets whatever he wants whenever he wants, and it's all true because he's PRESIDENT. Anything the president says is automatically true and anything he does is automatically legal, but no, stupid people insist on CHECKING facts, on demanding PROOF. How rude! Don't they respect that he's president?
So to escape all the stress and "work" (read: showing off to foreign dignitaries) he's back on the road, pressing the flesh and stomping around on stage because even without bread, circuses are a GREAT way to keep the masses entertained.
Until, you know, they can't be entertained any more.
NEW RINGGOLD, Pa. (AP) -- Among the groups hardest hit by the Republican plan to replace the Affordable Care Act is one that swung for Donald Trump during last year's presidential race - older Americans who have not yet reached Medicare age.[..] Health care experts predict those older adults will end up buying skimpier plans with lower coverage and higher deductibles because that's all they will be able to afford.
Yes, those days of grandstanding to screaming masses have gotten a little more strained. It's one thing to have someone else to blame for the problems but now the buck stops with him. And Dickhead has to find a way to keep the cult happy, even when they're the ones who will be taking the fall.
Good luck Nero, keep on fiddlin'.
Eight years of un-fucking America under the banner of "hope" and stupid hicks could only complain that a non-white person was President. Now they have the ultimate, privileged white-boy who suckered them in and suddenly they find "hope".
In his first budget blueprint since taking office, President Donald Trump held to his promise to build up the U.S. military while slashing domestic spending - even for programs that benefit the rural and lower-income Americans who voted for him last November.
"Some people might think it's a betrayal," said Eric Waara, the Republican city manager of the 7,000-person town of Houghton on Michigan's Upper Peninsula, who said he hoped the proposal was just a negotiating tactic. "I think that we all hope it's the first small step until something better."(AP)
It's not "hope" it's fucking delusion. These are people who voted for someone who HATES them, loathes the poor, detests anyone who isn't in the top tax bracket and still they have "hope". Hope for what? I'd like to know. That he'll keep his promises of eliminating your medical coverage? Taking away your food? Ensuring that the elderly pay more and receive less? That their rivers and streams fill up with cancerous mining run-off? It's not like Dickhead Donald didn't say he WASN'T going to do these things, he sure did and you morons STILL voted for him.
Wanna know what else I find funny? After 8 years of screaming and crying from the NRA about how guns were going to get taken away NOT A DAMNED THING HAPPENED (except, of course, that gun companies made a fuck-ton of money as people hoarded as fast as they could.) Now, of course, gun stocks are poo-poo.
My fellow tRump-voting americans, I have this to say to you: "You're fucking retarded." And... as always... enjoy your "win". The more of you die as a result of your own actions, the better off this nation will be, because you're not smart enough to make good choices for yourself, not to mention the rest of the nation. Better stock up on "hope", because that's all you've got left.
Go on guess! Who am I talking about? You have absolutely NO idea right?
There are "no indications" that Trump Tower was under surveillance by the US government before or after the election, a Senate committee has said.
The statement from Republican Senator Richard Burr, Senate Intelligence Committee chairman, dismissed Donald Trump's claim his phones were tapped.(BBC)
That little white lie by the sitting president just cost the american taxpayers well over several million dollars. Because he can't come to terms with the idea that there's ACCOUNTABILITY now, completely incapable, a man who is used to getting and saying whatever he wants. It used to be some lackey's job to clean up after, to quietly hide the mess or make the impossible come true. That lackey is now the GOP.
And that lackey has just said: "no".
It's not even brick by brick, it's more like acre by acre, watching the total disintegration of the health, welfare and social equality of the U.S. of A. At the helm, evil incarnate backed by a screaming, frothing mass of angry, gun-toting, greedbags.
YPSILANTI, Mich. (AP) -- President Donald Trump announced Wednesday that the administration will re-examine federal requirements governing the fuel efficiency of cars and trucks, moving forcefully against Obama-era environmental regulations that Trump says are stifling economic growth.[..]
Trump's announcement is expected to set the stage for weaker fuel efficiency standards as well as drawn-out legal battles with environmental groups and states such as California that adopted their own tough tailpipe standards for drivers.
Just fucking fantastic. I'm not sure there is a correlation between better fuel economy and jobs, but there sure the fuck is one between pollution, dependency on fossil fuels, terrorism, and global warming. It's unlikely under any scenario that Detroit will suddenly revitalize, boom with new manufacturing of massively polluting, oversized vehicles. But hey, as I've pointed out before, this is tRumpmerica, we just live here. Reality has nothing to do with anything any more.
Hey smaller government fans! Here's your latest update!
CHERRY HILL, N.J. (AP) -- The Republican health care plan means less money for states and gives them a tough choice: Find a pot of cash to make up the difference or let coverage lapse for millions of lower-income Americans.
Yep, there you go, the cost of independence. So what will you choose? Paying more in state taxes, or watching people die? I mean what would a GOOD christian choose eh? (Y'all probably choose the death option and justify it somehow with some Biblical reference to support "eh, kill 'em, they didn't contribute much anyway.")
Because in Steve King's world everyone is exactly the same: white, right and uptight.
Senior Republican congressman Steve King has sparked a backlash on social media after tweeting his support for the Dutch anti-Islam politician, Geert Wilders.
"Wilders understands that culture and demographics are our destiny," Mr King wrote on Twitter.
"We can't restore our civilisation with somebody else's babies," he added.
The US Republican representative of Iowa defended his comments on Monday, saying he "meant exactly what he said".(BBC)
So this is our new world order. Thanks to the election of a total fuckwad people aren't just coming out of their racism closet, they're burning that motherfucker down and proudly declaring their hate for those "others". On Steve King's agenda: kill all the black/yellow/brown/red babies. Or at least make life as miserable as possible for those producing them.
So it's just another day in tRumpmerica. Embrace diversity? Lol, only if it means different shades of pure, lily-white asshole.
I like this lady, but then again you knew I would.
AUSTIN, Texas (AP) -- A Texas lawmaker is making a point about legislation that restricts women's access to health care and abortions by proposing to fine men $100 when they masturbate.
Alongside the penalty for wasting semen not resulting in a pregnancy, state Rep. Jessica Farrar's bill would require a "medically unnecessary digital rectal exam" before any man undergoes a vasectomy or can be prescribed Viagra.
The 11th term Democrat tells the Houston Chronicle that her bill mimics how a woman seeking an abortion is forced by Texas law to undergo a transvaginal ultrasound, which "has nothing to do with her health care."
She says while some people think it's funny, her bill highlights the obstacles women face "that were placed there by legislatures making it very difficult for them to access health care."
Jessica Farrar I tip my wig to you. Well done.
The GOP is rushing this though because they don't want their fantasy to come to an end. The truth hurts. Problem is they won't be the ones really suffering.
WASHINGTON (AP) -- Fourteen million Americans would lose coverage next year under House Republican legislation remaking the nation's health care system, and that number would balloon to 24 million by 2026, Congress' budget analysts projected Monday. Their report deals a stiff blow to a GOP drive already under fire from both parties and large segments of the medical industry.[..]
The report also flies in the face of Trump's talk of "insurance for everybody," which he stated in January. He has since embraced a less expansive goal - to "increase access" - advanced by House Speaker Paul Ryan and other Republicans.
The ACA took months of research, commentary and input from all sides of the equation. Yes, those bad, bad democrats did things the RIGHT way by steady measures, research and consultation with experts. The GOP on the other hand doesn't want ANY of the above because they want to take credit before the fact and fuck the consequences. Even if those consequences are people who voted for them.
Good job red-voters! Enjoy your "Great" america. Just don't get sick. Or old.
Dickhead still hasn't gotten it through his thick skull that he's president, not king, and he's not allowed to just spew any random thought that comes into his empty head.
WASHINGTON (AP) -- Facing a Monday deadline, the Justice Department asked lawmakers for more time to provide evidence backing up President Donald Trump's unproven assertion that his predecessor wiretapped his New York skyscraper during the election. The request came as the White House appeared to soften Trump's explosive allegation.
While I can't put an actual cost on his bullshit I can do a rough estimate. Based on his desperate bid to redirect attention away from his Russian connection, tRump made up what he *thought* would be just another fabrication, just like all the ones he spewed during the election. But then the government, paid by the taxpayers, had to deal with the consequences: the Justice Department; let's say generously, 20 people for 80 hours (two weeks) at $50 an hour which equals $80k and that's JUST the Justice Department. Now lets add congress for just one day: $16 million (reference: scroll down to the answer) and we'll ignore the press and anyone else peripherally involved in communicating the fallout from this specific prevarication.
So yeah, a few million. Just to humor a crazed, egomaniac. But that's not all...
White House counselor Kellyanne Conway sidestepped questions about the lack of proof Monday, saying she was "not in the job of having evidence."[..] "What I can say is there are many ways to surveil each other now, unfortunately," including "microwaves that turn into cameras, et cetera," Conway said. "So we know that that is just a fact of modern life."
Dumb Twat Conway then opened a HUGE can of worms by saying that the government has "many ways to surveil" it's citizens, meaning that the US Government, also her employer, is constantly violating the public's rights every moment of every day which is "just a fact of modern life". No bitch, no, it's NOT just a fact of modern life, you need a court ORDER to wire tap, an order which, if it actually existed, tRump could declassify and wave in everyone's faces.
Which he can't.
So what we have here is a stinking mess. An asshole who just says whatever he feels like, an administration that's afraid to correct him, and more than half of congress doing whatever it can to go along with the crazy.
Yep, just another day in tRump-merica, just another day in hell.
Side note: I love how ingenious the GOP is with calling Trumpcare ACHA rather than ACA, in one case the A is for "american" and in the other it stands for "affordable" which pretty much states the difference right there because in tRump-merica non-white, non-rich, non-GOP are not "americans". They're filth that needs to die.
Young Americans would probably see their premiums drop under the Republican plan. [..] Those earning higher salaries stand to benefit the most from the Republican bill, which lifts two taxes levied on the wealthy under Obamacare.[..] the new plan removes those geographic cost offsets, which could mean city-dwellers benefit from better access to physicians and state public-health infrastructure.(BBC)
So if you're young, white and wealthy then bully for you, you score! But... what about everyone else?
Older adults, specifically Americans in their 50s and 60s, are likely to pay more under the new system, even though they would receive larger tax credits. That's because the Republican proposal allows older adults to be charged as much as five times more than younger policy holders.[..] The new plan would roll back much of the provisions put in place to protect low-wage earners under Obamacare. [..] Another group that would lose under AHCA is people living in rural areas, where the cost of coverage tends to be higher due to fewer hospitals and insurers. (BBC)
So let's see how the money-minded GOP figured this out - take the group that probably needs the LEAST amount of health care and give them the most benefits. Then take the people who need more and are already pay more and give them less. Yep, that about covers it.
Mmmm I can't wait to see how the heartland reacts to their higher (or eliminated) health care. Yeah! You wanted smaller government? Well you're going to get it. Enjoy!
I guess being white, racist and dickheaded is now "cool" because everyone's trying to get in on the act.
JACKSON, Miss. (AP) -- A top Mississippi lawmaker is blocking an effort to punish universities that refuse to fly the Confederate-themed state flag - a symbol that critics see as racist.
The state House passed a bill Wednesday saying public universities could not receive certain tax breaks unless they display the flag. All eight schools have removed it because of the Confederate battle emblem.
Fucktards like Rep. William Shirley feel obliged to cram their views down the throats of those they're supposed to represent. Even though ALL the universities have removed the confederate flag, he wants to blackmail the institutions of higher learning by withholding state money. Why? Because FLAG. At no point does fuckwad admit that there MIGHT be a problem with what the flag represents, or that it stood for wealthy, white plantation owners trying to hold on to slavery as a way to save their business model. No, it's just "here's the state flag, if you take our money, you need to fly it, BECAUSE."
Which, in itself kinda proves the point as to what the flag really represents. It represents racist assholes who haven't given up their past, or learned from history. It also represents the tRump-merica that we're living in today, rancid and hatefilled like never before.
Oh and hey Willy? By the way, fuck you.
Because i'm pretty sure that between the lot of them this administration has one, maybe two whole ones.
WASHINGTON (AP) -- The new chief of the Environmental Protection Agency [Scott Pruitt] said Thursday he does not believe that carbon dioxide is a primary contributor to global warming, a statement at odds with mainstream scientific consensus and his own agency.
Like that? When quizzed before his confirmation he said he believed (suddenly) that global warming was a thing, and now... well, maybe but it's certainly got nothing to do with the big money that industry pours into this administration. No, not cars, not factories, not burning coal, really the globe is just warming on it's own and fuck all that science-shit that says otherwise.
Know what else I like? How tRump supporters keep saying that they "have to trust him" because it's pretty clear that blind, stupid faith is all they have to go on when the actions and lies get so horrific. Apparently "common sense" isn't just lacking from this administration... Maybe it's something in the water?
