Here's an idea, why not thank the fucking SCIENTISTS that enabled you, not the "god" that didn't? Because I think "god" was trying to tell you something...
Feb. 17 (UPI) -- A Texas couple's pregnancy announcement after a long struggle with fertility issues featured their 452 IVF needles -- and two onesies for their coming twins.
Lauren Walker, 28, announced in a Facebook post, which has since gone viral, that she and her high school sweetheart, Garyt, are expecting twins after years of trying and hundreds of in-vitro fertilization treatments.[..]
"We prayed for 953 days...452 Needles, 1000's of tears, 1 corrective surgery, 4 clomid/letrozole attempts, 2 IVF rounds, 3 failed transfers and & 1 Amazing GOD," Walker wrote.
Ok see, without SCIENCE you wouldn't have gotten pregnant because SCIENCE was the ONLY thing, not your prayer, that got you pregnant. But hey, yeah, god is so fucking amazing that he invented IVF to be discovered by scientists just so you could get pregnant.
Actually you know what god REALLY wanted you do to? Fucking ADOPT.
Apparently quoting from a 10 year old letter is a penalty worth gagging on.
WASHINGTON (AP) -- Sen. Elizabeth Warren has earned a rare rebuke by the Senate for quoting Coretta Scott King on the Senate floor.
The Massachusetts Democrat ran afoul of the chamber's arcane rules by reading a three-decade-old letter from Dr. Martin Luther King's widow that dated to Sen. Jeff Sessions' failed judicial nomination three decades ago.[..]
Quoting King technically put Warren in violation of Senate rules for "impugning the motives" of Sessions, though senators have said far worse stuff. And Warren was reading from a letter that was written 10 years before Sessions was even elected to the Senate.
Still, top Senate Republican Mitch McConnell invoked the rules. After a few parliamentary moves, the GOP-controlled Senate voted to back him up.
Now, Warren is forbidden from speaking again on Sessions' nomination. A vote on Sessions is expected Wednesday evening.
Democrats pointed out that McConnell didn't object when Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas, called him a liar in a 2015 dustup.
So here we have the part of "unity" right? All the calls about how we were going to "come together" after tRump was elected, live and let live, respect other views, bring america together.
Really, what do you expect from a party that uses every opportunity to disenfranchise voters, repress minorities and destroy the middle class? Yes, reading a LETTER from Coretta King was more offensive than being called a liar. REALLY McConnell? So here we have the new union. Better, greater than before. Ready to work together.
Actually it's more of a swamp than ever before. Between the lies, the denials, the complete lack of ethics the government is now more vile than any time in the past. I would say the civil war was probably more civil than this. Still, it's what voters wanted and thus it's what they're going to get. Here, have some: Fuck you cocksucking GOP dicktards, fuck you and your "values", your limited horizons and your vision of a white, aging, evangelical america. Fuck you sideways with a rusty spoon.
Now, are we friends yet?
Thing is, when the person who NEEDS excusing doesn't feel obliged to come up with the excuse it raises the all important question: "Is this person sane?" But we know the answer to that, don't we.
WASHINGTON (AP) -- President Donald Trump warned in a phone call with his Mexican counterpart that he was ready to send U.S. troops to stop "bad hombres down there" unless the Mexican military does more to control them - comments the White House described as "lighthearted."
Wrecking relationships one at a time seems to be this brat's agenda. Kicking over the blocks that have been carefully laid over decades isn't a concern here because he's never the one to clean up his own mess. Quite literally he has people to wipe his shit for him, no matter the end it spews from.
What a world eh? And people are actually HAPPY about this. Dumbfucks are proud that we have a pathological, lying, egomaniac fronting the nation because it makes them feel better. "Yeah that's stupid, but if the president can lie and deny then it's ok for me too." No, sorry, it's not ok. Being a racist is not ok. Hating foreigners is not ok. Being greedy is not ok. Being a blatant misogynist is not ok. You know that and because you're NOT tRump you have to care.
And if you don't understand why, I suggest you try it for a while. You'll figure it out.
Arnold would have my vote.
On Friday, Trump said in his tweet, "Yes, Arnold Schwarzenegger did a really bad job as Governor of California and even worse on the Apprentice ... but at least he tried hard!"
Schwarzenegger responded quickly to Thursday's remarks in a video on his verified Twitter account, suggesting that he and Trump switch jobs. (AP)
So really this is how he tries to make his own show a success by pissing on the person he picked to replace him? Why the fuck... No. There IS no why. There just IS.
We all know that he sure as shit can't match Arnold's past as a body builder and successful actor. For the record Arnold WAS reelected as Governor. Let's see if Dickhead Donald can match at least that eh?

And you know. It's totally true.
And it's a Republican gag-fest!
"One of my proudest moments was when I told Obama, 'You will not fill this Supreme Court vacancy.'"
-- Sen. Mitch McConnell, 2016
"Apparently there's a new standard now, which is to not confirm a Supreme Court nominee at all. I think that's something the American people simply will not tolerate."
-- McConnell, 2017
Oh waaaaa and boo-fucking-hoo. Now the shit is on the other shoe and you can't TAKE it? Really? Please, cry me a fucking river you "let's shut down the government rather than do our jobs" assfucks. Seriously, the GOP can take their pity-party and cry themselves sick over how LITTLE respect Dickhead Donald is getting from the dems AND the majority of voters.
Senate Finance Committee Chairman Sen. Orrin Hatch, R-Utah, was angered by the Democrats' action, saying, "I can't understand why senators, who know we're going to have these two people go through, can't support the committee.
"I'm very disappointed in this kind of crap. Some of this is because they just don't like the president. This is the most pathetic thing I've seen in my whole time in the United States Senate."
Yeah cry me a fucking RIVER. Sauce for the goose BITCHES.

No, no we're not.
More people PROTESTED Trump than came for the inauguration. There were words of hope, words of love, words of courage, words of strength. Fighting words. Healing words. Words of pain and remediation.
Trump is not going to stop the hope of half a million people in DC, of over a million people around the globe.
We are not wrong. And we will win.

Country stars Toby Keith and Lee Greenwood, rock groups 3 Doors Down and The Piano Guys, DJ RaviDrum and The Frontmen of Country with Tim Rushlow, Larry Stewart and Richie McDonald are the confirmed performers for the Make America Great Again! Welcome Celebration. (UPI)
Also correct: "Nobodies."
Amazing how SOME people actually wanted this jackass as president and worse, now that he's continuing to act like a fucking tool they ADORE it.
SOME people are beyond retarded.
US President-elect Donald Trump has hit back at Meryl Streep's criticism of him as she received a lifetime achievement award at the Golden Globes.
He tweeted: "Meryl Streep, one of the most overrated actresses in Hollywood, doesn't know me but attacked last night at the Golden Globes.
"She is a Hillary flunky who lost big," Mr Trump added of the three-time Oscar-winning actress.
She said: "When the powerful use their position to bully others we all lose." (BBC)
Yes, when lambasted by a famous Actress the president-to-be acted like a baby, "Waaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaah! She was mean to me!"
THIS is the next President? Listen fuckface, this is just the START of people hating on you. Think the shit Obama had to put up with was bad, heh. Think again.
Awww, does someone-ski need a hug-ski?
Russia says US allegations that it ran a hacking campaign to influence the American presidential elections are "reminiscent of a witch-hunt".
Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov told reporters Moscow was tired of the accusations. (BBC)
Pretty awesome, imagine if everything worked that way: kill someone but complain during your murder trial that you're "tired of being persecuted", or maybe help someone win a tight election and complain that you're "tired of being persecuted".
People should just back the fuck off right?
What a mixed message. On the one hand Tiny-n-Butch Putin is ok to reach out and fuck with the international affairs of others and on the other he's "oh so lonely and sad" because people hate him for it. Kinda like how everyone feels about his propping up the Regime of Death-Evil in Syria.
YEP RUSSIA WE DO HATE PUTIN IT IS TRUE. GET RID OF HIM AND WE'LL TALK.
I was patiently waiting my turn to speak to someone outside their office at a dealership. I had been there first thing in the morning, first in line, and someone had already jumped in front of me to get into the lady's office. Ok, that shit happens, so I waited the 20 min for my turn. Just as person 1 exits, another person walks right in front and goes in ahead of me. Now, by this time everyone in the dealership knew I'd been waiting 45 minutes and it was well past the appointed time for my meeting.
Truthfully, someone DID go in and speak to the people, but they were already in mid-business so more waiting ensued.
As they left, I pounced into the vacancy and the woman who had cut me, and her husband, felt obliged to offer and apology. Sure, if you're going to say sorry, no problem, but then she followed it with "well, we're OLD and make mistakes."
Wait what? Old? WHO'S OLD? They're old? Hold the fucking phone bitch.
I was wearing my hat. I swept it off, revealing more gray than they had. "Yeah, I know about OLD," I retorted.
"Well," said the old guy huffily, "THESE days you can get gray color with chemicals, we're MUCH older than you."
They were wasting my time, but I tossed out one last retort, "I guess looks can be deceiving then," I snarked back.
Really? FUCKING REALLY? Next time just apologize and walk away and maybe I won't think you're a pair of assholes.
Lock WHO up?
"She has to go to jail."

"Nah, forget it. That plays great before the election, now we don't care."
-- Trump, on Clinton, after election
Yeah YOU fell for it SUCKAS. Let's just see how long it takes all y'all to wake up to the fact that you've been had. Me? I wasn't had, I saw through this shit before it even started.
Mmmmm so how does that shit taste now eh? Gritty? Chewy? Maybe you'll find some corn in there!
Yep it's not 2017 but I already have MY new years resolution in the bag. Since what 50% (or less) of our nation wants, admires, salutes and promotes pure, unvarnished self centered hate and shit slinging I promise to make that my platform for the year, spreading as much caustic vitriol as one gun-boat sized supersoaker can indiscriminately stream.
Oh and without regard for friend or foe.
If it worked for the new president, it certainly can work for me.
Merry fuck you. And fuck you's to all.
Enjoy. I know I will.
One Guy, whomever you are, thank you for actually thinking.
ATLANTA (AP) -- As members of the Electoral College prepare to choose Donald Trump as the 45th president of the United States, some Republican electors say they are defending rural and small-town America against big-state liberalism and its support for national popular vote leader Hillary Clinton.
But the picture is more complicated.[..]
Clinton won some 2.6 million more votes than Trump in the nationwide tally. But Trump is line to get 306 of the 538 electoral votes under the state-by-state distribution of electors used to choose presidents since 1789.[..]
The Associated Press tried to reach all 538 electors and was able to interview more than 330 of them. Many reported getting tens of thousands of emails, calls and letters asking them to vote against Trump.
But the canvass found overwhelming support for the system, and the nominee, among Republican electors. The AP found only one pledged to Trump who will refuse to vote for him.
I don't know who he is or what state he's from but I want him to know that I appreciate what he's going to do. So out there. Mr. Elector, whomever you are, thank you.
So the nativity is back at the corner of our block again, each character lit up with 40 watts of celestial joy. In the past years I've recounted how the infant is typically wedged, catty corner, in a plastic magazine rack. Last year I think it was a plastic laundry basket. This year - upgrade! He now rolls about in a wicker (looking) basket about the same size as the plastic laundry one from last year.
It's pretty funny, the whole plastic crew clustered around the unlit basket, like everyone wants to dive in and find their missing sock. On the other hand at least some things never change much.
If there's one thing in common with all the fucked up shit happening in the world it's that the Boomers are still influencing things. They're responsible for Brexit, Trump, and a host of other problems stemming from their withering brains. The sooner they croak the better, honestly. They sure enjoyed the fuck out of themselves in the 60's, 70's and even 80's but now that they're old it's "fuck everyone else", give me small government and all the Medicare the nation can't afford.
When the Boomers die off, say in about 10 - 20 years the world will be in a much, much better place.
