And, are, it's about the same...

The traffic on the highway was pretty terrible. I mean it's usually terrible, but it was 12:30 in the freaking afternoon, ffs, and it was backed up all the hell over. No, it wasn't an accident, it was merely people skipping out for a half day ahead of a long weekend. The stupid was endemic and now it was all over the highway. I made the command decision to get off.

The exit has a rotary, something both common and hateful in New England. As I got off the highway and toodled down the exit ramp the backup from the rotary, as people were trying to "merge" (this word doesn't actually EXIST in the New England vocabulary) the exit ramp was backed up a few cars, no more than four or five. I wanted to get home, but I wasn't in a terrible rush, and the back roads were bound to be more promising. What I neglected was the back-road assholes that came with the situation. As I waited, patiently, a battered white van, a workman's van, came tearing down the exit ramp and drove around me to try and stick it's stubby nose in the half-car-length of space between me and the car ahead.

Ok, seriously. What the everloving fuck was this?

I laid on the horn and pushed my way around the van. Astonished and flabbergasted that anyone would pull such a fuck-brained maneuver.

Then I noticed the tRump bumper sticker on the van, the 50-ish run-down white guy with white hair in a stained shirt at the wheel. He tried driving the van into the side of my car, like that would make me budge. He stopped just short of hitting me.

I rolled down the window "Go vote for tRump ya Dickhead!" I hollered.

"Uh.... Ok! I will!" came the clearly perplexed reply. He couldn't figure if that was an insult or not, even with the "Dickhead" in the sentence.

He was on my bumper. Hard. But it was my turn to get into the rotary. I'd like to apologize to the person I jumped in front of, I generally am quite polite at rotaries, but this called for evasive action. As my car leapt into the whirlpool of cars, I looked back, noting that Asshole tRump-Tarder hadn't made it out behind me. I drove hurriedly though the roundabout, three-quarters of the way around, to my exit, and spared another look back. White van was weaving through the rotary, people braking left and right to avoid a collision.

As I made it to my exit, I noticed that the white van had also pulled out on my exit, but one lane over. Another car was pulled up next to it, and both drivers were screaming at each other through open windows. Relieved that Asshole tRump-Tarder wasn't going my way I thrust one spiraling, fisted, bird out the window and bellowed "FUCK YOU ASSHOLE" which I assumed the target would know to whom THAT was intended and took off on a quick turn away from the conflagration of hate.

tRump-Tarders. Can't live with 'em and they won't do us the favor of shooting themselves. Hopefully 3 more years and they can go back to crawling under their rocks.

tRump has already and explicitly laid his position on aiding Puerto Rico and it's basically this: "Puerto Rico isn't a state, and it's citizens aren't American (to him) so why bother to pay anything? Even it it means saving lives?"

WASHINGTON (AP) — The U.S. ramped up its response Monday to the humanitarian crisis in Puerto Rico, even as President Donald Trump brought up the island’s struggles before Hurricane Maria struck — including “billions of dollars” in debt to “Wall Street and the banks which, sadly, must be dealt with.”

The administration delayed approval for lifting restrictions on necessary shipments to the island. He has only briefly mentioned the devastation in comparison to Texas and Florida. He is nothing if not consistently heartless when it comes to money, and ruining lives of people whom he considered both insignificant and a burden, not to mention not-white. Now Dickhead is having a sad because Puerto Rico won't beg/compliment/fawn over him. This is a community where people had little and now have nothing, not even power or shelter and Dickhead is angry that they're upset at their suffering.

BRANCHBURG, N.J. (AP) — President Donald Trump on Saturday lashed out at the mayor of San Juan and other officials in storm-ravaged Puerto Rico, contemptuous of their claims of a laggard U.S. response to the natural disaster that has imperiled the island’s future.

“Such poor leadership ability by the Mayor of San Juan, and others in Puerto Rico, who are not able to get their workers to help,” Trump said in a series of tweets a day after the capital city’s mayor appealed for help “to save us from dying.”

“They want everything to be done for them when it should be a community effort,” Trump wrote from his New Jersey golf club.

President White Guy is UPSET that a completely devastated island isn't doing more to help themselves. I mean it's not like they don't have power, clean water, and a waiter on hand to serve them while they play golf. tRump is evil, but that's no news, because that's why his fans elected him: to serve them at the expense of everything and everyone else. Thus his response, his pandering to his base, with respect to aiding a devastated community is calculated to be heartless for a reason. Unlike say, rewarding the richest of the rich with tax cuts (which, of course he somehow WON'T benefit from.)

Money is more important than lives, more important the the truth, more important than the nation he's taken an oath to "serve". And the best outcome he can think of is the entire island disappearing and all the people with with it. He'd call it a "win" and "a big savings" and "making american great". Just don't mind the piles of bodies, starving babies and a people whom we pledged to support.

Fuck you Dickhead. Fuck you to hell.

It seems as if great strides are happening around the world as the US creeps slowly into the shadows. Perhaps what we're seeing is a form of equilibrium, where even nations with terrible records on human rights and equality are saying "fuck, the US is going into the shitter, maybe we'd better do the opposite before the whole world goes to hell."

Saudi Arabia's King Salman has issued a decree allowing women to drive for the first time, state media say. Government ministries are to prepare reports within 30 days and the order will be implemented by June 2018, the Saudi Press Agency reported. Saudi Arabia is the only country in the world to forbid women from driving. (BBC)

The Irish government says it will hold a referendum next year on whether to change the country's laws on abortion, one of the strictest in Europe.

Voters will be asked to decide whether to change the Irish constitution under which abortion is only allowed if the life of the mother is in danger.(BBC)

As Saudia Arabia and Ireland move forward with women's rights, here in the US we're turning back the clock against victims of rape on college campuses, making it harder for women to afford health care and celebrating a president who has not only been prideful in boasting about how me can grope any woman he likes, but actually gropes his wife in public.

You would think that other nations would take their cues from the conservative wave of woman-hate sweeping the US, but no, apparently they're better than that. And we, who used to pride ourselves in being a celebrated democracy based on equality are being represented by an arrogant bombast who wants to take cues from Dictators and Monarchs like Kim Jong and Putin.

We suck.

AP Raw News Is Missing

Dear Associated Press,

WTF have you lost your minds? Who sold you on the idea that changing your site from a text and information rich format to a UPI, color-glossy with little content and irrelevant imagery was a good thing? I WENT TO YOU PEOPLE FOR NEWS NOT FOR A BLUE BANNER AND A FRACTION OF THE CONTENT. I DON'T WANT PICTURES!!!

Look, let's be honest with ourselves, you'll NEVER beat the BBC when it comes to relevant imagery and good layout. What you have is Walmart quality at best. It's NOT good, it's NOT useful and I don't want to subscribe to ANYthing. I just want to read the fucking news, the RAW news, as it happens, not the same limited text with a PICTURE and only a portion of the total topics.

So here's the skinny: YOU'RE DOING IT WRONG. Put the fucking raw news back.

You're welcome for the input.

Aung San Suu Kyi has forgotten what it was like to be a minority, her life is plush and comfortable, and in this manner the military has taken their biggest enemy and turned her into their biggest ally. After all, who doesn't like good food and a soft bed?

COX'S BAZAR, Bangladesh (AP) -- With Myanmar drawing condemnation for violence that has driven nearly 380,000 Rohingya Muslims to flee the country, the government said Wednesday its leader, Aung San Suu Kyi, will skip this month's U.N. General Assembly meetings. [..]

Suu Kyi's appearance at last year's General Assembly was a landmark: her first since her party won elections in 2015 and replaced a military-dominated government. Even then, however, she faced criticism over Myanmar's treatment of Rohingya Muslims, whose name she did not utter. [..]

Rohingya have faced decades of discrimination and persecution in Myanmar, where they are denied citizenship despite centuries-old roots in the country.

Suu Kyi is a tragedy, a tragedy of tolerance, a tragedy of honor and she brings shame on both herself and her nation, not for a lack of action but for the lack of the very acknowledgement of what is happening in her country. The Nobel Laureate has demonstrated that her award is just a cheap trophy for someone who, herself, could be bought for the price of a comfortable life and a modicum of power.

Now Suu Kyi is the enemy of peace and humanity. She has lost her credibility and value. Now she's no better than the generals or the soldiers who are persecuting civilians, burning their homes, forcing them from their own nation.

You are a tragedy Suu Kyi. And how quickly history will wash over your legacy and make it disappear. So have some more good food, and get some rest. It's all you have left.

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.

You know the old adage that starts with "If it ain't broke..."? Well in this case "fixing" has nothing to do with it because "if it IS broke Dickhead will only make it worse."

WASHINGTON (AP) -- Actions by the Trump administration are triggering double-digit premium increases on individual health insurance policies purchased by many people, according to a nonpartisan study.

The analysis released Thursday by the Kaiser Family Foundation found that mixed signals from President Donald Trump have created uncertainty "far outside the norm" and led insurers to seek higher premium increases for 2018 than would otherwise have been the case.

As much as Dickhead would like to keep blaming Hillary, keep blaming Obama, keep blaming the Dems the fact is that he had his shot at trying to be productive and completely wiffed. Frankly he didn't even try, that's an exaggeration, rather he merely expected that those he sees as serving him should have executed his wishes... just because.

At no point as Dickhead actually done a single lick of work. He thinks (misusing that term right there) that answering emails and barfing up tweets is work. The whole listening, discussing, weighing options, coordinating and making a well thought out decision based on logic and experts isn't even REMOTELY a figure in this administration. This is just "make it up as you go along" proving that indeed, anyone CAN be president but not anyone can be GOOD at it. Or even mediocre. Or even poor. Actually I'd settle for just a smidge over "fucking horrible" but even that's long gone.

Yes the Dickhead solution to healthcare? Unaffordable until you're dead. Then it's not a problem any more.

Scarlet 'A' For Alabama

Bitches in Alabama ain't got no fucking rights. Not if legislature has their way. Whores who get knocked up are gonna have those babies, because the state demands it.

A judge has rejected an Alabama law that puts teenage girls seeking abortions through a court-like process with a lawyer representing the foetus.[..] Since 1987, girls aged under 18 in the state must get permission from her parents before she can get an abortion, but a judicial bypass was available if the girl could show her mental maturity in cases which involved abuse.

The legislation in 2014 mean parents or a legal guardian could appeal against the judicial bypass, thereby delaying the procedure until the girl could no longer seek an abortion.[..]

The girl was 13 weeks pregnant when she appeared before a family court judge, records show.

A judge granted the abortion on 27 June and a district attorney appealed against the decision the same day. (BBC)

Like that? Criminals won't get free legal representation but a non-human mass of cells sure can. And the DA himself none the less. In tRump-merica women will be subjected to the most physically and emotionally intrusive punishments for the crime of having a womb. Rape, incest, doesn't fucking matter, a woman's body isn't just public property, her fate, her future is subject to the whims of a patriarchal, repressive, religious fundamentalism which dictates that ALL women are the source of evil and as such need to be controlled for the good of society.

Or, if you prefer the short hand, Alabama is fucking EVIL and it's lawmakers are women-hating filth.

Enslaving women through forced-pregnancy is a third world mentality, lovingly embraced by third world states like Alabama in the name of "protecting" women by ruining their future and ensuring that they can never get ahead.

Fuck you Alabama. Fucking, fuck you.

I'm not proud to be American these days. Everything about the US that was awesome, our tolerance, our creativity, our willingness to do good without recompense is gone. Now anyone I see sporting an american flag on their shirt or hat I automatically assume means they're full of hate; hating immigrants, hating women, hating the poor, hating anyone who isn't a white male with money.

I don't get it. All those haters came from immigrant families at one time or another, but they've conveniently forgotten that. Not only that but even those whose parents or grandparents are immigrants feel ok to attack darker skinned americans whose families heritage predates theirs by several generations.

White makes right apparently. Money is power. And people who are missing one of those two are more than happy to sell their souls and the souls of their neighbors to return to a past that never was as great as they imagined it.

Of course they have someone feeding them lies, and like hungry, baby birds they're willing to swallow any shitty tasting worm just to keep the illusion alive.

Never has there been a president -- case of FDR, he had a major Depression to handle -- who has passed more legislation and who has done more things than what we've done." (Dickhead Donald)

It's astonishing how little value is placed on facts, on truth, on the honest perception of reality. These are people who are not only willing to believe the emperor is well dressed, but that his clothes are so fine that it hides their own shit stained, ratty, torn, filthy garments.

I don't fault tRump for being who he is. I fault his "supporters" for believing something he's not, to the point where anyone NOT drinking the Jonestown Koolaid is not fit to be american.

Well I hate Koolaid. And I have no tolerance for delusional assholes who want to laud someone as inept, incapable and ignorant as the current fool who would be king. I guess that makes me unamerican.

I used to doubt that I'd ever go to Florida for a holiday. I don't doubt any more.

TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (AP) -- Lucy McBath is afraid many more people will die if Florida Gov. Rick Scott signs a bill making it harder to prosecute when people claim they commit violence in self-defense.[..]

The measure before Scott would effectively require a trial-before-a-trial whenever someone invokes self-defense, making prosecutors prove the suspect doesn't deserve immunity.

Scott hasn't revealed his intentions, but he's a National Rifle Association supporter, and this is an NRA priority.

Rick likes guns and, apparently, hates his citizens. In his world, or state if you prefer, the more dead Floridians, the better. Less welfare, less social services. Also less African-Americans since they're scary, which means they're shot more often by white people who can walk away after saying they were scared. It's pretty much that simple. Two people walk down the street, one dies after being shot by the other. There's only one story to be told, isn't there? Now kangaroo courts will rubber stamp any Caucasian who says "that black guy scared me" and justice will never see the light of day. And the NRA will use it as a new standard to sell more bullets.

Florida? Nah, I don't need to go there. Let them kill each other all they like. Maybe it'll make for less voters.

Ok, Stupid Slut DeVos needs to go.

SALT LAKE CITY (AP) -- Education Secretary Betsy DeVos reiterated her push for school choice during an annual education technology conference in Utah Tuesday, comparing the issue to being able to switch between phone service providers.

She said there are many great cell phone companies, but people have the option to pick which one they want to use.

Because your kid's future is EXACTLY the same thing as your cell phone bill. Gods what a stupid twat. There's really no explaining to a billionaire bitch why we need public education. So why bother? It's going to be more asinine drivel for another 3+ years. Next!

AUSTIN, Texas (AP) -- Texas lawmakers are advancing a proposal to license family immigrant detention centers as child care providers.

The state Senate voted 20-11 Tuesday to give preliminary approval to a bill that would allow Texas to license two family lockdowns, despite a past state court ruling that such facilities do not meet minimum requirements to care for kids. The measure would enable detention facilities to hold families for prolonged stays, which advocates say could physically and psychologically harm children.

Yes, Texas found another way to help their prisons earn money! By incarcerating whole families and then claiming credits as child care. Imagine, what a great way for kids to learn and grow, behind bars in a cement box.

America the loathesome. It's not a great time or place to be a kid.

Go on, pat yourselves on the back, you helped deport yet another EVIL immigrant. Maybe even TWO!

Maribel Trujillo, a mother of four American children from Fairfield, Ohio, who has never committed any crime in the 15 years she has lived in the US, has been deported to Mexico in the latest sign that the Trump administration is indiscriminately targeting undocumented immigrants. (The Guardian)

April 19 (UPI) -- In a reversal of its prior stance, the U.S. Department of Homeland Security said Wednesday the first-known "Dreamer" deported under President Donald Trump's administration did indeed have valid protective immigration status.

Wow a mom of four American kids who never harmed a soul and a student. Yeah! Boohyah! Boy we just made America SO MUCH FUCKING SAFER.

Go on trumper, give yourself a gold fucking star. You did great.

...In the US for the right to control their own destiny.

US President Donald Trump has signed a new measure aimed at rolling back federal funding for the US women's health group Planned Parenthood.
The legislation removes an Obama-era rule that prohibited states from withholding funding for family planning services that provide abortions.(BBC)

Yes moderate, DDT has become moderate where it suits him, BUT NOT WHEN IT COMES TO WOMEN'S RIGHTS.

It's 2017 and women still have to die to exercise the right to determine what happens in their own bodies.

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.

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!
