Well there you go, so much for any pretense of fiscal conservatism. The "tax cuts" (for the rich) just added an extra trillion to the deficit. Strange, I thought the GOP campaigned on the promise of reducing, not increasing the overwhelming, massive, towering, future-crushing debt?

The plan sees a sharp cut in corporation tax, but a Senate committee finding has warned it would add $1tn (£742bn) to the budget deficit. (BBC)

The GOP has paid tribute to what it dearly loves most: rich people. In this case corporations will get wealthier, the rich, including Dickhead, will make a fat pile and everyone else? We can go fuck ourselves.

WASHINGTON (AP) — Pornography publisher Larry Flynt is offering “up to $10 million” to anyone who produces information that leads to President Donald Trump’s impeachment and removal from office.

Of course we KNOW Russia has pr0n pics, the question is... do they really need 10 million? Stay tuned!


Dickhead Donald can't help himself; people have no food, no power, no shelter and his only concern is how much restoring the most basic of these necessities is going to cost.

Oh and by the way, any dollars spent on restoring the Puerto Rico are going to be charged to their already well overdrawn account. Thanks for shopping!

SAN JUAN, Puerto Rico (AP) — Touring a small slice of Hurricane Maria’s devastation, President Donald Trump congratulated Puerto Rico on Tuesday for escaping the higher death toll of “a real catastrophe like Katrina” and heaped praise on the relief efforts of his administration without mentioning the sharp criticism the federal response has drawn.

“Really nothing short of a miracle,” he said of the recovery, an assessment at odds with the despair of many still struggling to find water and food outside the capital city in wide swaths of an island where only 5 percent of electricity customers have power back. The governor of Puerto Rico said late Tuesday that the official death toll has been increased to 34 from 16.[..]

Trump pledged an all-out effort to help the island while adding, somewhat lightly: “Now I hate to tell you, Puerto Rico, but you’ve thrown our budget a little out of whack because we’ve spent a lot of money on Puerto Rico. And that’s fine. We’ve saved a lot of lives.”

People have had their entire lives wiped out and his concern is that "our budget is a little out of wack." But hey, it's not like it was a REAL disaster, because you know, only a few dozen people died. So, yah, not a real tragedy in any sense. No urgency to save additional lives, or anything. No.

The clown show, where he was tossing out paper towels as if those would rebuild homes, restore power or provide aid to the needy was extraordinary. I suppose if your ego is big enough you can't get embarrassed by demeaning desperate people like a fisherman throwing chum to a seal. But Dickhead doesn't think and, more importantly, he doesn't see anyone who isn't a multi-millionaire as a "person" worthy of basic respect. So after delays and debt consideration, Dickhead was petulant over helping Puerto Rico because they weren't respectful enough to HIM.

For much of his tour, Trump remained focused primarily on drawing praise.

“I appreciate your support and I know you appreciate ours,” Trump said. “Our country has really gone all out. It’s not only dangerous, it’s expensive. But I consider it a great honor.”

I fail to understand why any reasonable, caring, sociable human would have supported Dickhead for president. My ultimate conclusion is that those who voted for him, and those who still support this shitbrain aren't any of those things. They're selfish, uncaring, antisocial greedbags who believe that Dickhead would (somehow) make their lives better at the expense of everyone else.

Well, good luck with that. Because we're all Puerto Rico in one way or another, and unless you're independently wealthy there's not a single thing this "president" is going to do for you.


Scott Pruitt is a total disgrace. Unable and unqualified for the position he holds, he only manages to embarrass himself and the nation with his total stupidity. Which, of course is why his boss LOVES him.

Pope Francis has warned history will judge world leaders who do not act as he blasted climate change sceptics in the wake of Hurricanes Irma and Harvey.

The pontiff said the recent storms meant the effects of climate change could be seen "with your own eyes". There have been four major Atlantic hurricanes in less than three weeks.

But US Environmental Protection Agency head Scott Pruitt said it was an inappropriate time to discuss what role climate change may have played.

Mr Pruitt - who has previously said he "would not agree" carbon dioxide is a primary contributor to global warming - told CNN current speculation "on the cause and effect of the storm... is misplaced".

Instead, Mr Pruitt said the conversation should be focused on the clean up effort.

Scott you're an imbecile. Global warming is real. It's man-made, but there's no amount of reality that will ever convince someone like you, because YOU DON'T CARE about america, it's people, or the future of the planet because it's inconvenient. You want money. You want businesses to make money. You want votes.

But what you don't want is the reality of the results.

To you disasters like Texas and Florida aren't tragedies, they're opportunities to make more money. So what if people suffer, are homeless, need government support? None of that matters because you're not inconvenienced, nor are the people who pay you to rape the planet of resources or pollute whatever remains.

In simple terms you're evil. In more complex ones, well, you're also evil because pretty much anyone who takes a job to deliberately fuck up the agency they work for and fuck over the people he's sworn to support is just simply evil.

It's a farce that you're in charge of "Environmental Protection" when your main goal is "Environmental Pillage".

I hate you Scott Pruitt and I'm not alone in my disgust. Shitbag.


Is a steaming cesspool of reality.

MADISON, Wis. (AP) -- It would take at least 25 years for Wisconsin taxpayers to break even on Gov. Scott Walker's incentives to lure Taiwanese electronics giant Foxconn to the state, according to a fiscal analysis released Tuesday.

Dickhead was pretty quick to celebrate "his" role in bringing jobs back the US. Only the "deal" is a one-sided suckfest for the state who "won".

The nonpartisan Legislative Fiscal Bureau's analysis of the bill found that Walker's administration found the cost of the tax credits would exceed potential increased tax revenues by $1.04 billion at the end of fiscal year 2032-33. After that year, payments to Foxconn would end and increased tax collections would ring in at about $115 million annually. At that rate, the break-even point would come during the 2042-43 fiscal year.

The break-even point could come even later, though.

So really, for 3k new jobs the state winds up overcommitting and digging itself a hole to the tune of over a billion. If, of course, Foxconn bails before the break even period the state is extra-extra fucked with a side of 3000 new names on their unemployment rolls.

Yes this is the "art of the deal" folks: take a steaming pile of crap, put it in a box, spray paint it gold, celebrate yourself as being awesome and then run away. Because it's not your problem any more.


The GOP doesn't really love tRump. But they sure love his money.

But the president and his party won't be calling it quits any time soon. They remain tightly linked by a force more powerful than politics or personal ties: cash.

Trump's fundraising prowess is the engine of the Republican National Committee and a lifeline for every Republican planning to rely on the party for financial help during next year's congressional races. (AP)

Most people, even the GOP, are saying that Dickhead got elected, not because of his (obvious lack of) talent but because voters wanted to punish the traditional parties for their inability to govern. You have to wonder, who is getting punished more? The Dems now have the luxury to sit back and use the same tactics the GOP used, merely saying "no" and "we can do it better" rather than coming up with an effective plan. The GOP, on the other hand, is stuck between the erratic whims of a pathological egomaniac and actually capitalizing on their dominant position in legislature.

Turns out it's harder than it looks though.

So now the GOP has a choice and senators are starting to make it: ignore Dickhead and do things at their own pace, or, keep sucking the money dick. There's also the white-anger-management voting blocks in many of their own states who clearly couldn't pass the IQ test when it came to voting but still think that eliminating health care and welfare will hurt everyone but them.

So the clown show continues. Most of America is either regretting their votes or regretting the votes of their peers. Either way all we can do it kick back, get out the popcorn and wait to see where it goes. No place good, that's basically guaranteed.


Helping educate Americans is NOT her goal: her goal is to use education to make money and ensure that those who cannot afford the same quality of education as the wealthy will never rise above their poverty.

July 6 (UPI) -- A group of 18 states is suing the Department of Education and Secretary Betsy DeVos over the decision to delay implementation of protections for students at for-profit colleges.

The lawsuit seeks a court order to force DeVos to implement a rule, drafted under former President Barack Obama, that was scheduled to go into effect in June known as the Borrower Defense Rule. It would make it easier for students who took out loans to attend for-profit colleges later found to be fraudulent to have those loans forgiven.

DeVos, a proponent of for-profit colleges, delayed implementation, saying the department needed to further study the ramifications of the new regulation.

Unabashed evil. That's our Betsy. In the US access to education is supposed to be an enshrined right, but Betsy-Evil doesn't see all citizens as equal. In her twisted mind religion is the only education the poor need or should have access to, because they're never going to have a job that requires more than a high school education. College, is and should be exclusively for the exclusive, the wealthy, the few, the 1%.

Anyone who can POSSIBLY need to review a rule that PROTECTS students from fake colleges, and shysters trying to take their money is the definition of EVIL.

Betsy, you're a fucking evil, cunt-whore and I hope you choke on your next glass of champagne. Amen.


And, to be honest, so can Dell, but I hate Apple more.

So what happened? Apple just upped and cancelled an entire set of orders for computers that were in stock the day before. Why? Because they want to sell new products instead (and make more money). So instead of notifying buyers that new products were going to come out soon. Instead of telling people that they'd better order model X before model Y came out they just flat out cancelled shit and said "Well, sorry, but go back to your users and your purchasing department and while you're at it, go get another 50 signatures since these are new prices for new products (which may have new features that people DON'T want) and while your at it, go fuck yourself because we don't care enough to fuck you personally.

So now all the people who waited several weeks to get their ordered through the purchasing process can wait a whole lot longer because the new products aren't even available to buy.

Hey Apple. Screw you. This is why I build my own. Fuck you. Fuck your iWhatever. And fuck off.


The GOP likes to harp on their "lowering taxes will increase state revenue by encouraging people to spend" logic. It's more easily summed up as "receiving less money means you will make more." If the logic escapes you that's because there IS no logic, e.g., Kansas...

TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) -- Kansas legislators advanced a new plan Monday evening to meet a court's mandate on education spending, after separating it from a proposed tax hike aimed at fixing the cash-strapped state's budget.[..]

Another team of negotiators drafted a separate proposal to raise $1.2 billion over two years by rolling back past income tax cuts championed by Brownback.

Kansas faces budget shortfalls totaling $889 million through June 2019, and the state Supreme Court ruled in March that the state's $4 billion a year in aid to its 286 public school districts is inadequate.

The GOP crowed and crowed about how Brownback was going to make Kansas rich by lowering taxes. In the end the strategy didn't pan out and now they have to raise taxes AND make up for a massive shortfall. Yet somehow, despite an obviously failed strategy, not enough people in the state feel that their governor is unfit to keep fucking things up.

It's hard to say why people support the same failed rhetoric while paying the consequences, but maybe they actually believe that not calling a spade a spade really makes it something other than a spade. In which case their education system really is well and truly fucked.


You voted for tRump, isn't this what you wanted?

Some 23 million people would lose health insurance over the next decade under the revised Republican healthcare plan, says a non-partisan agency.

Fourteen million people would be uninsured in 2018 alone, according to the Congressional Budget Office. (BBC)

tRump hasn't issued a new era of mediocrity, rather he's issued in an era of pure lies and total incompetency. House GOP were SO FUCKING EAGER to say they did something they approved the first thing they could, as fast as they could, before anyone could think or assess what it meant. Much like the tRump "budget".

The White House has denied the president's budget proposal contains an "egregious" maths error.

Former US Treasury Secretary Larry Summers pointed out the spending plan double-counts $2tr (£1.5tr).

But White House budget director Mick Mulvaney told reporters: "We stand by the numbers." (BBC)

Pshaw, so what if they counted their income twice. I mean that's MATH and MATH IS HARD (as opposed to science, because science is just wrong.) I guess following in the footsteps of a president who can only use bisyllabic words like "great" and "awful" it's not terribly surprising to see utterly inept people doing a criminally inept job. After all, anyone with any brains, self esteem or enough IQ to drive a car has pretty much shied away from the tarpit that this administration currently represents.

tRump, because stupid-like-us is not just a winning slogan, it's a way of life.


The title is just a fancy way of saying that these are two people with absolutely NOTHING in common.

VATICAN CITY (AP) - They are stylistic opposites, one a bombastic tycoon-turned-president, the other a famously modest pope. They disagree openly on such weighty issues as immigration, climate change and economic policy.

President Donald Trump fulfilled a major campaign promise Tuesday, proposing a $4.1 trillion budget plan that would upend Washington in a big way. But he drew rebukes, even from some Republican allies, for the plan's jarring, politically unrealistic cuts to the social safety net for the poor and a broad swath of other domestic programs.

As far as pointless meetings go, this is basically a waste of everyone's time. Dickhead Donald only cares about making money, making the rich richer and everyone else, middle class, poor, the utterly destitute can die. Preferably somewhere where the smell won't waft his way. This meeting is a failed pairing, like Waldorf Salad and BBQ Sauce, it's just not two things you would ever willingly put together, probably not even in the same room.

Dickhead won't budge on being a dickehead. He never has, he never was anything less. Super Pope won't stop defending the poor, emphasizing that we all share the same planet and fighting for equality for all. Neither has any reason to tolerate the other, except for the sake of positive press. Dickhead gets to show the world that his money bought him a spot at the Pope's table. The Pope demonstrates that he can look pure gluttony in the eye and not flinch.

For the rest of us it were better that this never happened. But then stupid people can vote... so we're stuck with this mess.


President Money Bags

That's HIS money, not yours thank you. Who the fuck cares if YOU were the one that earned it?

president Donald Trump has stated repeatedly that he wants to cut the federal budget. But that might not apply to his travel budget, which continues to grow as he treks between the White House and his Mar-a-Lago estate in Palm Beach, Fla., nearly every weekend.

So far, Trump’s travel to his private Florida club has cost taxpayers an estimated $20 million in his first 80 days in the White House, putting the new president on a trajectory in his first year in office to surpass former President Barack Obama’s total travel expenses over eight years, CNN reported.

Like that? Dickhead Donald is draining the swamp, right into his own pocket. Each trip costs US $1.2 million a pop. And he's not afraid to spend, spend, spend!

So, how's that populist president working out for ya 'eh? Feeling rich yet?


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...


Well, bwawwwwwhhhh, Dickhead Donald is having a sad. Again. He thought being Supreme Ruler of the United States meant raping the US to make all the monies he never made because he's not rich enough already.

"This is more work than in my previous life," he said. "I thought it would be easier."

Mr Trump's comments on being president have been ridiculed on social media, with many quick to share their surprise at his, well, surprise.

Well Dicky, howsabout you go back to your day job of fucking off and stop fucking the US into a total catastrophe? I know it would certainly make the MAJORITY of citizen voters pretty goddamn happy.

Imagine that, being President is actually WORK. And this coming from the guy who's playing MORE golf and spending MORE time at his personal resort than any President ever dared.

tRump, president of the United States of tRUmp. Everyone else? Can go to hell.


So when you TAKE something away from the public and GIVE it to an individual to make money off of, somehow that's fixing things.

In December, shortly before leaving office, President Barack Obama infuriated Utah Republicans by creating the Bears Ears National Monument on more than 1 million acres of land that's sacred to Native Americans and home to tens of thousands of archaeological sites, including ancient cliff dwellings.
Republicans in the state asked Trump to take the unusual step of reversing Obama's decision. They said the designation will stymie growth by closing the area to new commercial and energy development. The Antiquities Act does not give the president explicit power to undo a designation and no president has ever taken such a step. (AP)

Yes the GOP in Utah were upset. Land that held the heritage for American Natives, historical monuments and national beauty were being preserved and saved for the public and future generations. But that's not how the GOP rolls. It's money NOW and fuck the consequences later. So naturally they have a big friend in office, one who's not at all afraid of taking away public property and gifting it to the few, the wealthy, the powerful. We're already pretty clear on what tRump thinks about the environment and the future, so opening parkland to energy companies to tear up and drill down isn't even a second thought.

President Greedhead is in office and the policy is "make all the money you can, fuck everyone and everything else".


Poor Fucks

For every tRump voter making under several million a year I have this to offer... Happy yet?

April 21 (UPI) -- President Donald Trump took aim at more Obama-era federal regulations on Friday, signing three orders to re-examine government restrictions and safeguards that were put in place after the financial crisis.[..] Trump's contention for scrapping the oversight is that it stifles corporate growth and, by extension, weakens the economy.

You should be because you got what you voted for: someone who couldn't give a FUCK about you. Every action Dickhead Donald is taking is ensuring that the rich can more easily, more seamlessly, and more legally take everything you have.

Yes, Donald's face was printed on that tube of lube you happily slathered on. I hope you don't get a cramp from holding that position though. There's a few more years to go...


A lot of big biz and rich-rich fuckers lined up to shower Dickhead Donald on his way to making himself very rich. Now they're hoping for the "big payback."

Big money from billionaires, corporations and a roster of NFL owners poured into Donald Trump's inaugural committee in record-shattering amounts - to pull off an event that was considerably lower-key than previous inaugural celebrations.
That leaves a bit of a mystery: What the $107 million was spent for and how much was left over - the excess, if any, to go to charity. It also raises a new round of questions about the influence of money in politics, this time for a president who promised to "drain the swamp" of Washington. (AP)

Ah the poor ignorant slobs who actually BELIEVED that Dickhead Donald was going to work for them. That's so rich... like HE is (not you.) Nope, dumb fuckers gave him their vote in exchange for a promise of a goose in every pot and the freedom to hate thy neighbor.

Well... at least they got that second part. Free.
