And *I* don't think that anyone who is against old, white, asshole, conservative fucktards getting it up should pay for their prostrate exams or viagra either.

Aug. 10 (UPI) -- Texas lawmakers this week approved a bill that would require women to pay a separate health insurance premium to get coverage for elective abortions.

The bill will not allow exemptions for cases of fetal abnormalities, rape or incest, reported the Texas Tribune. It passed on a 95-51 vote Tuesday.

The bill's author, Republican state Rep. John Smithee, said abortion foes shouldn't contribute to abortion costs when they pay their health insurance bills to private health insurers.[..]

Democratic state Rep. Chris Turner said forcing women to pay extra to be covered in the case of a rape-induced pregnancy amounts to "rape insurance."

"Women don't plan to be raped. Parents don't plan for their children to be victims of incest," he said. "Asking a woman or a parent to foresee something like that and buy supplemental insurance to cover that horrific possibility is not only ridiculous, it is cruel."

Democratic State Rep. Donna Howard asked Smithee whether a 10-year-old girl who became pregnant after a rape should be forced to pay extra for health insurance, or go through with the pregnancy.

"We're discussing taking the life of the innocent little baby because of something the baby had nothing to do with," Smithee said, according to The Dallas Morning News.

Like that? Hey John Smithee (smithiee? smitey? schmucky? nah let's just go with fucking-assfaced-dickmunch-scumbag-womanhater), pardon let's use your NEW name: Hey Fucking-assfaced-dickmunch-scumbag-womanhater, you thought you were sooooo smart right? Because you're not denying women abortions, you're merely trying as hard as you can to make it as difficult as possible.

Also, an embryo isn't an "innocent little baby" shit head. It's an embryo. And women's bodies are THEIRS, not yours. Also you're going to lose that one in court because it's discriminatory to women to force them to carry an additional financial burden which only THEY have to have. Basically a womb-tax, for the crime of being able to get pregant.

So fuck you. Fuck your misogyny. Fuck your double standard. Fuck your intent to repress women and impose your own standard on what they can and can't do. Fuck you sideways with a rusty spoon which, hopefully, will get wedged, for putting further constraints on the poorest women who need the most help, not judgement, not forced pregnancy, not an end to their future, not a permanent memory of a CHOICE they are legally entitled to make.

Fuck you right to hell John fucking-assfaced-dickmunch-scumbag-womanhater Smithee. Oh, and have a nice day.

I love this quote regarding the GOP on their attempts to re-write or re-whatever the ACA...

That prompted Democratic Sen. Chris Murphy to tweet: "Seriously, this is weapons grade bonkers. 3 Senators just announced they will vote for repeal only if assured it will never become law. (AP)

So let me get this straight, the GOP senators merely want to go on RECORD as voting yes so they can SAY they did something, but they're totally against the results of what they're voting for.

Well, tRump sure brought the stupid to the GOP and it looks like they're pretty much stuck with it. Kinda like the taxpayers are being stuck with over a billion for the "wall".

Great job guys, great fucking job.

I support LBGT.

WASHINGTON (AP) -- President Donald Trump abruptly declared a ban Wednesday on transgender troops serving anywhere in the U.S. military, catching the Pentagon flat-footed and unable to explain what it called Trump's "guidance." His proclamation, on Twitter rather than any formal announcement, drew bipartisan denunciations and threw currently serving transgender soldiers into limbo.

"Please be advised that the United States Government will not accept or allow Transgender individuals to serve in any capacity in the U.S. Military," the commander in chief tweeted.

Trump wrote that he had consulted with "my generals and military experts," but he did not mention Defense Secretary Jim Mattis, the retired Marine general who less than one month ago told the military service chiefs to spend another six months weighing the costs and benefits of allowing transgender individuals to enlist

Let's be clear:

  • Dickhead NEVER consulted with anyone, his statement is just another pathological lie
  • Trans troops exist, have existed and will continue to exist and do their job alongside their peers
  • "Hours of sensitivity training" as decried by shithead, religious fundies supports ALL non-white, non-male members of the armed forces and CONTINUES to be essential
  • Dickbag has the attention span of an amoeba and the intelligence of nearly the same, this is just another pretty distraction that caught his minuscule attention and aids NO one, except his freakshow followers

I do congratulate Dickhead in one area: consistency. He does manage to meet or exceed the WORST things imaginable. And many that are unimaginable too.

PARIS (AP) - French President Emmanuel Macron said Thursday it is "obvious and indispensable" to have exchanges with U.S. President Donald Trump as the two leaders were set to meet to try to push past major differences and find common ground on security, defense and other issues.

Odious makes far more sense in that sentence.

So much for separation of church and state...

WASHINGTON (AP) -- Churches should have the right to endorse political candidates and still keep their tax-free status, say House Republicans targeting a law that prohibits such outright politicking from the pulpit.

Republicans repeatedly have failed to scrap the law preventing churches and other nonprofits from backing candidates, so now they are trying to starve it. With little fanfare, a House Appropriations subcommittee added a provision that would deny money to the IRS to enforce the 63-year-old law to a bill to fund the Treasury Department, Securities and Exchange Commission and other agencies.

The subcommittee passed the bill Thursday.

The GOP likes to prey on the feeble minded and weak spirited. And what better way to do it than from the pulpit? If you're in a church (because, let's be realistic here folks, they're not talking about Mosques or Temples, the GOP thinks there's only one religion in the world: christianity) you've already suspended both your belief in reality and your own self-determination. It becomes even more ironic when they go after support for causes that actually do HARM to those they're courting for votes. Health care? Not for you, you have god right? Help the poor, or elderly? Well Jesus said he'd care for them, so let him, they don't need our money. Love your neighbor? Not if they're dark skinned, gay or liberal, in which case god wants you to kill (just like the jihadi's only with a cross not a scimitar.)

So the GOP, after gerrymandering the fuck out of every state they could, they're now trying to weaponize religion for their own benefit. It's not a democracy they're after, just a christian state based on the same model as Iran. Guns, religion, big money and oil. And everyone else can go fuck themselves.

After tens of votes to repeal the AHCA the GOP is in a dog-sweat to shove through a "replacement" and pat themselves on the back. You'd think, however, that maybe juuuuust maybe some of them might want to read it first. And get non-partisan opinions. And the results of analyses.

But that would be bad IF the deal itself had major flaws right?

"It's a big complicated subject, we've got a lot discussions going on, and we're still optimistic we're going to get there," McConnell told reporters after the lunch. (AP)

McConnell thought that by drafting it in secret, by not letting anyone SEE the development that they couldn't form a solid opinion when they did finally see the finished product. He desperately wanted the kudos now, and didn't care much at all about who might be effected.

But other senators, other GOP senators DID care, maybe not about people dying from lack of coverage but for their own totally orthogonal reasons.

WASHINGTON (AP) -- Millionaires would get tax cuts averaging $52,000 a year from the Senate Republicans' health bill while middle-income families would get about $260, according to a new analysis of the foundering bill.[..]

Moderate Republicans were concerned that too many people would lose health coverage under the bill while conservatives said it wouldn't do enough to reduce premiums.

So the rich donors get their kickbacks so they can keep pouring their donations into the GOP coffers. That was the main focus of what Mitchy really wanted to do. Killing the poor through lack of coverage was just an added bonus. Now that the word is out, and before the vote, before July 4th which would have seen lots of loud self-congratulations to cover the howls of dismay, it will be just a tiny bit harder for the GOP to move ahead with their "death panels" (oh wait, they don't need death panels because it's just a simple calculation - if you don't need subsidized healthcare then you win, everyone else can go suck it.)

But if the GOP can't kill the poor by yanking their access to medical care, they CAN just make sure they're exposed to more poisons in the air, water, ground and... of course, global warming.

WASHINGTON (AP) -- The Trump administration is taking steps to roll back an Obama administration policy that protected more than half the nation's streams from pollution.

The Environmental Protection Agency and the Army Corps of Engineers on Tuesday outlined a process for rescinding a 2015 regulation that defines which waterways are covered under the Clean Water Act.

Yep, death to everyone who can't afford bottled water and their own medical coverage. Just fuck 'em. It's not like this administration isn't overt in its distaste for the poor, it just wants a bigger gap between the haves and the have nots. Like a 6' gap. Straight down.

The ACA, otherwise known as the AFFORDABLE Care Act is the actual title for Obamacare. Trumpcare on the other hand is the American Health Care Act.

Hmmm, they both cover care but something is suspiciously missing from the AHCA isn't it. Like, say affordability? Yes, that's right folks, in the desperate drive to "repeal" the ACA, tRump and his GOP flunkies are trying to ensure that the losers lose hard. Who are the losers?

  • The poor
  • The elderly
  • The sick

Yes, in the GOP world, health care is only for people who want to pay premiums, but not for those who might actually need benefits. In essence it's a winning bet for making money. Which is the GOP strategy all along. So if you're NOT rich, if you're NOT young and you're in great health then bully for you.

The rest of you? Can fuck off and die...

Go on tRump Voter tell me why you think this is awesome...


WASHINGTON (AP) -- President Donald Trump "has no intention" of releasing his tax returns to the public, says Treasury Secretary Steve Mnuchin, asserting Americans have "plenty of information" about the president's financial matters.

For decades, presidents have released their tax returns. But Trump has so far refused, saying that he would share the tax documents only after the Internal Revenue Service completes an "audit" of them. He's never disclosed proof of an audit and tax lawyers say there's nothing preventing him from releasing his returns if he's under one.

Trump said before he launched his campaign that he'd release them if he ever ran for office.

"If I decide to run for office, I'll produce my tax returns, absolutely," he told an Irish television station in 2014. "And I would love to do that."

Yep taxes. Funny how Dickhead Donald can totally reverse position on EVERYTHING he campaigned on and yet Hillary is still the liar. Funnier still how everyone who hated Hillary has yet to justify how they not only accept but approve of far worse behavior from their savior Dickhead Donald.

Y'all are fucking stupid right? Yeah, I knew that.

Lie, lie, lie, lie, lie.... Sing it with me now!

Especially when that practice might benefit the poor and disenfranchised! The very NERVE that people WITHOUT money can actually find a lawyer to represent their interests! WTF right? The law is for the RICH. Exclusively!


RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) -- A center founded at the University of North Carolina by a civil rights attorney to help the poor and disenfranchised is the latest institution to come under fire from conservatives as they work to leave their mark on the state's higher education system.
African-American attorney Julius Chambers, who endured firebomb attacks in the 1960s and 1970s as he fought segregation, founded the UNC Center for Civil Rights in 2001, serving as its first director. Now conservatives on the state Board of Governors, which sets policy for the 16-campus system, want to strip the center of its ability to file lawsuits, removing its biggest weapon.[..]
Those developments followed a conservative political takeover of North Carolina, launched in 2010 when Republicans took their first state House and Senate majorities since the late 1800s.
Board member Steve Long said the center must refocus on its education mission, and "one of the things you say no to is public interest law firms." He added, "free enterprise, civil rights, protection of children's rights - whatever the cause it doesn't matter. Are you going to stay on mission as an educational institution or not?"

Ya think Steve Long sleeps well at night? I mean what person with a reasonable conscience say "fuck children's rights"? A good conservative can, apparently. Funny how the moment conservatives get into power they go after institutions which play a noble and necessary cause. That's because it irks them. In their mind the law exists to JUSTIFY their views, and that justification is firmly grounded on affordability. By eliminating an agency that they can't control one that, mind you, isn't PAID for by the school but by outside grants and donations, fucking-shitbag-rightwing-assholes will ensure that those without money never get a chance to be heard.

All in the name of "preserving a mission of education."

Because really, what better way to learn than by hands-on? No. Not if it means success for someone who couldn't pay for it otherwise.

Fuck you Steve Long. Fuck you.

It was printed on a sign at a rally. The rally was in defense of having a conservative hate-speecher present. It said "Hate speech is free speech." It took a while, but eventually I've come around to that position myself.

You're chuckling right now I'm willing to bet. However there's a corollary there, if one CHOOSES to use hate speech, then one must be prepared for the incivility that results. Put more succinctly: if I'm going to use words that will trigger an unthinking anger, then I must be prepared for my opponent not just to do the same, but to do worse. And that RIGHT there means that I'm the one responsible for the degeneration of communication. This is precisely where I choose to spit on the relationship and stomp it to death. This is also precisely why I cannot claim, at any point in the future, the moral high ground NOR feign outrage when my opponents stop listening and do the same.

After a decade of listening to conservatives malign, threaten and abuse non-conservatives, it's simply astounding that they are now crying about how horrible it is when they're on the receiving end.

Really?

Dickhead Donald went out of his way to hate on women, non-whites, and anything that does not align with making money (environment, health, education, international cooperation, the list goes on.) Now suddenly all the tRumpanzees who embraced the hate, who screamed at non-whites, who assaulted Hillary are upset and outraged that this frenzy of anger has continued unabated. Somehow it was all just going to go away. Right? Please?

Oh no. The effectiveness of "please" died when you decided that someone who can degrade, defile, and disrespect with venomous vitriol another human is worthy of representing our nation. tRump ran under a banner of hate, so why so surprised when it becomes the standard?

So to all those out there "surprised" that the loving liberal is now the hating liberal. To those who thought that the effective use of hate as a motivational tool, as a tool to intimidate and annoy opponents belonged to the right, well, maybe now you're going to realize the damage that YOU did in embracing it.

The use of hate does not belong exclusively to the right, rather, as the sign pointed out, it IS a right. And it belongs to everyone. And THAT is the conservative legacy.

Question 1: And why, exactly, didn't this ten minutes of listening come sooner? Like say, before the election?


WASHINGTON (AP) -- President Donald Trump is abruptly reversing himself on key issues. And for all his usual bluster, he's startlingly candid about the reason: He's just now really learning about some of them.
"After listening for 10 minutes, I realized it's not so easy," the president said after a discussion with Chinese President Xi Jinping that included his hopes that China's pressure could steer North Korea away from its nuclear efforts.
[..]
That's just one of several recent comments offering insight into what looks like a moderate makeover for an immoderate president. As he

Question 2: Will the herds of screaming, frothing, shit-flinging Trumpanzees follow their Great White Leader's example and think for 10 minutes themselves?

Well, probably no, since thinking absolutely NOT a desired characteristic of a mindless-woman-hating-bible-thumping-greedbag. So I guess that brings us to Question 3: if DDT has changed his opinion, will his mindless, drooling, knuckle dragging hordes follow him?

It's interesting that DDT has suddenly had the epiphany that "being president is hard and means thinking about stuff, stuff that isn't necessarily about him." What's less interesting is the evil fuckwads he put into positions of power BEFORE his epiphany happened. Maybe he's fire more of them? But what will he replace them with? I don't know if I WANT to know the answer to that...

Bitch Betsy has started on her mission to ensure that higher education is exclusively for the exclusively wealthy. Everyone else can fuck right the hell off.

April 12 (UPI) -- Education Secretary Betsy DeVos has rolled back protections for student loan borrowers that were enacted by the Obama administration.
She formally withdrew policies outlined in memos issued by former President Barack Obama at the end of his term in office that called for the Federal Student Aid office to strengthen protections for borrowers. [..]
Among the Obama memorandums DeVos withdrew were two requiring the FSA office do more to help borrowers manage or even discharge their students loans.
The Obama protections came after an increase in student loan defaults and what some officials called systematic mistreatment of borrowers by companies servicing student loans.

Like that? Betsy doesn't want education within reach of the average American. Lucky for her, tRumptard, who is only in it for himself, won't care what it does to the current generation of college-age kids. Between routing money from public schools back into the hands rich fundies who prefer private, mind-control academies to bankrupting fools who actually try she's on a mission to "make American stupider."

Bravo Betsy, you're a hateful bitch but at least I give you credit for not trying to hide it.

No worries, it's ALL under control...

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) -- Now that President Donald Trump is in the White House his team is figuring out that Russia is "never up to any good," the top Senate Republican said Wednesday.

Well goddam! How did America miss that one until just now? Boy it's a DAMNED good thing we got these guys in offices! They're fucking geniuses!

Keep doing the politics boys, you're doing a GREAT job.

Chaos is pretty simple, just let entropy do its thing. On the other hand order and structure, well, that's muuuuuch harder.

The Republican Party of "no" for Democrat Barack Obama's eight years is having a hard time getting to "yes" in the early Donald Trump era.
The unmitigated failure of the GOP bill to replace Obamacare underscored that Republicans are a party of upstart firebrands, old-guard conservatives and moderates in Democratic-leaning districts. Despite the GOP monopoly on Washington, they are pitted against one another and struggling for a way to govern. (AP)

The first thing a baby learns is to annoy its parents by dropping, throwing and grabbing shit at random. Baby doesn't know much, only that it gets them attention and it's EASY. Parents, on the other hand, need to teach baby rules, limits and self control so that their youngster can interact with society at large, not be a nuisance, and to deal with the hard work of learning and growing up.

The GOP is still pretty much in that "throwing shit" stage of growth. After so many years of screaming, crying, pitching a fit, refusing to cooperate and acting out for attention they have no idea how to function as a viable entity. Sure they're all GOP in name, sure they have the numbers to make the government function to their benefit... but there's the rub, they can't all agree what that benefit is.

The government, and conservatives in particular, have forgotten the utility and art of compromise. Now that they have the ability to steer the ship, twenty hands are all grabbing for the tiller and the ship is stuck with it's sails luffing, no destination in sight.

Well... that's not all bad now is it? A few years of going in circles may actually knock some sense into them (or their constituents) and maybe IF they can learn to cooperate with each other, and that's a big maybe, then maybe they can learn to cooperate with the others as well. Maybe...

Apparently we're bad and we should feel bad. And also love Putin.

WASHINGTON (AP) -- President Donald Trump said he respects Vladimir Putin, and when an interviewer called the Russian leader "a killer," Trump said the United States has many of them.
"What do you think? Our country's so innocent?" he told Fox's Bill O'Reilly in an excerpt released by the network. The president's interview was to air Sunday afternoon on the Super Bowl pregame show.

Do you smell the patriotism burning there? I do. Truthfully I get it, Putin helped tRump win the election AND probably has some nifty dirt on Dickhead Donald as well. Trump stands by people who helped him, regardless of ethics, impact and better judgement. The best part is seeing the flag-mongering, ultra-patriots who backed him try and swallow this. Yes, Putin's a thug, a killer and a war-hungry megalomaniac. But hey, we're besties now so it's cool right?

Heh. So awesome.

It tastes pretty damn yummy to the next Prez...
President-elect Donald J. Trump appears to side with the WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange over United States intelligence agencies, with Vice President-elect Mike Pence backing him up.
So, my little Trumpettes, how's it feel to see your adored prez sucking some scraggly Aussie dick huh? Yes the fucking PRESIDENT OF THE US ADMITS HIS ADMIRATION FOR ASSANGE. Yes he do. Of course we all know that, up until a tight election was technically (non popularly) won by a total fucking tool, Assmange was an enemy of the US. Someone who solicits and publishes sensitive materials, endangering MANY people, not just Americans, working abroad. But hey, he's got the GOP stamp of approval now, so if you support your leader you'd best fall in line bitches! Heh. This is humerious. What next? A gold statue of Putin in the Oval Office salon? Probably, and just in time for his visit too!

The funny thing, the most typical line I heard from Trump voters were "Oh, he's not really like that." Well let's see, in the few minutes of news I've heard so far: * tRump doesn't want to live in the White House because it doesn't have gold bathroom fixtures * he's appointed all his kids as "consultants" which enables them to set policies AND profit from them * he's anointed a card-carrying racist to his cabinet So what part of "not really like that" is he really? Seems like he really IS as shitty as he proposed to be. Oh, and best part? He's already backing down on all the promises he made during the election, from leaving NATO, to building a wall, to eliminating Obamacare, to incarcerating Hillary. Tell me now... what's not to like?
