I'd say Susan Reitman is too stupid to be in public anyway.

ROCKLAND, Maine (AP) — A Maine woman says she’d rather go to jail than take down her pro-Donald Trump signs.

Susan Reitman’s signs say “I Love Trump” and “He Won, Get over it.” But the code enforcement officer in Rockland has notified her that the signs violate a local ordinance, because they are bigger than the town allows. She could be fined between $100 or more per day.

Town officials say there’s a process to apply for permits to display larger signs.

But Reitman tells New England Cable News that her free speech rights are more important than the ordinance. She says she has no intention of removing her signs — or paying any fines.

She tells NECN: “If I have to sit in jail for the rest of eternity, that’s my choice.”

Goddamn you're one stupid cunt ain'tcha Sue? Just the kind of person that Dickhead Donald is soo good at appealing to. You can post a sign, but it has to comply with your town ordinances, you CAN do it if you get a permit. Or you can put up a smaller sign. Or YOU can get over your own fucking self and try and get along with your neighbors.

Still, of all those options I like yours the best. Please, sit in jail for the rest of your life and save us having to deal with your stupid ass. Sounds like a win for everyone.

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.

The Ruskies are jealous of an old black dude, because even though he's grey and grizzled he's still got more boogie than they ever had. Ever. He also has the FREEDOM to say WHATEVERTHEFUCK he chooses. Something no russian has EVER had.

Russia has aimed its entire media arsenal at the veteran Hollywood actor Morgan Freeman over his appearance in a video accusing the Kremlin of waging "war" on America during last year's presidential election.

The video shows the Oscar winner accusing President Vladimir Putin, a "former KGB spy", of launching cyber attacks and spreading false information in order to avenge the collapse of the Soviet Union. (BBC)

In their attempts to discredit Morgan, the ruskies are lobbing everything but the kitchen sink: he's old, he's drugged, he's insane, he's naive, he's being used, whatever you name it he's being called that. The thing is if any of that WERE true then why would the ruskies actually go to all this trouble and effort to come up with conflicting theories and plaster them all over the same electronic media they're accused of subverting.

Why? Well maybe, just maybe, because what he said was true AND the shit is about to hit the evidence fan.

NEW YORK (AP) — Facebook is slowly acknowledging the outsized — if unintended — role it played in the 2016 U.S. presidential elections.

Bowing to pressure from lawmakers and the public, the company said it will provide the contents of 3,000 ads bought by a Russian agency to congressional investigators, while also pledging to make political advertising on its platform more “transparent.”

“I don’t want anyone to use our tools to undermine democracy,” CEO Mark Zuckerberg said in a Facebook video and wrote in an accompanying post . “That’s not what we stand for.”

The moves Thursday come amid growing pressure on the social network from members of Congress, who pushed Facebook to release the ads after the company disclosed their existence in early September. Facebook has already handed over the ads to the special counsel investigating Russian interference in the 2016 U.S. presidential election.

So let's see now - Facebook acknowledges AND has evidence of ruskie meddling. And has not only given it to prosecutors but is also going to make it public. Huh, seems as if Morgan DOES have some facts to stand on. Since the ruskies can't defend themselves in court without actually admitting their complicity, the next best thing would be to try the same tactic again right?

Sorry fucktards. We know you were balls deep in the tRump campaign. We know about the real estate deals. We know about the "special" briefings. And we're going to know a whole fucking lot more very soon. So cry all your like bitches, but it's our party now. And as you may have already figured out, Dickhead Donald might be elected, but it doesn't mean you're going to get anything special out of it.

Heh. Suckers.

The GOP is back at it again, desperate to claim a paper victory, they are willing to pass anything at all, no matter how terrible it is for the people who elected them. Just to claim an "accomplishment". That's like burning down your house just to claim you cleaned it. After all, if there's nothing left to clean your job is certainly done.

WASHINGTON (AP) -- It's divisive and difficult, but the Republican drive to erase the Obama health care overhaul has gotten a huge boost from one of Washington's perennial incentives: Political necessity.

In the two months since Senate Republicans lost their initial attempt to scuttle President Barack Obama's statute, there's fresh evidence GOP voters are adamant that the party achieve its long-promised goal of dismantling that law [..] "Republicans campaigned on this so often that we have a responsibility to carry out what you said in the campaign. And that's as pretty much as much of a reason as the substance of the bill" to support it, Sen. Charles Grassley, R-Iowa, told Iowa reporters in a conference call Wednesday.

"That base is so insistent. You made this promise, stick to it, and you'll be penalized if you don't," said Bill Hoagland, a former top Senate GOP aide and health policy expert.

So I'd like to ask the GOP: When people are stupid enough to want something that will hurt them, do you give it to them? Even if you know better? What if it costs you your job?

Well, we know where MOST of the GOP stands on this. They'd freely sell poison candy on Halloween if their constituents demanded it. Which is precisely what has happened. The banner they campaigned under, the poison they fed their voters was that government supported health care would kill the elderly (death panels), would force healthy people to pay for sick ones, would ruin the world and make everyone pay more. Endless empty votes on meaningless legislation to repeal something that would never be repealed. Posturing. Positioning. Pretending that universal healthcare was BAD.

How exactly the fact that anyone can get medical treatment they need, when they need it and affordably a bad thing is beyond any rational person, but sanity has nothing to do with it.

Now the GOP is being eaten by their own rhetoric. When forced to (literally) put money where their mouth is, the conservatives CAN'T find a solution and worse, many of those people they convinced have suddenly realized that the people being hurt when the ACA goes away would be themselves.

But the GOP is in a quandary. They've defined themselves as the party of "no", they prided themselves on the legislation they stopped and the people they prevented from being confirmed into jobs, they've lauded every attempt to impede progress even to the point of shutting down government and now... now they're ready to murder the people who elected them.

Know what we call something that kills its host? We call it the GOP. I wouldn't insult viruses.

He's stupid. What he says is stupid. He was voted in by stupid people, which sometimes happens when smart people fight each other, or get tired of fighting stupid people. Anyway, I'm sorry you had to listen to him. He's a moron. He doesn't represent America. He only represents himself. And stupid people. Sorry. Hopefully in three more years we'll have someone better for you to listen to. In the mean time, just give us a break and listen to Merkel. She's what we were supposed to have, only... well, never mind, it's just more excuses.

It's pretty clear he's not an adult in any form of the term.

WASHINGTON (AP) -- President Donald Trump took another swing at Hillary Clinton in the latest sign that his campaign fury hasn't faded, retweeting a mock video that shows him smacking a golf ball that - in the next frame - seemingly strikes her in the back before she stumbles and falls down while boarding a plane.

It's hard to fathom how anyone can see these infantile antics as anything other than the attributes of a deranged and dismally ill equipped mind. This is not presidential, this is less than what we expect from kids in middle school.

Honestly, Dickhead needs a good spanking and some time in the corner. One has to wonder how many meds his staff needs to take to deal with his idiocy on a daily basis.

Gods Dickhead, can't you grow up?

I love it when people identify as pro-tRump. It basically screams: "Stay the fuck away, I'm stupid, delusional and dangerous." I appreciate that the same way I appreciate a rattlesnake in tall grass, catching a glimpse of the white stripe on a skunk or any of the myriad of ways that nature tells us "Do Not Touch." It's extraordinarily helpful.

What's tragic is the impact this mass (and I use the word mass carefully, because although they fluff up to seem like they're bigger and yowl aggressively, Dickhead supporters are in no WAY the majority) stupidity has on people who just want to get along, and by get along I mean the people who don't care enough, who are disgusted enough or are just intimidated enough to tolerate and go along with the frothing, screaming howler monkeys.

Case in point: the "protest" against/for free speech that was also a Dickhead rally in DC this weekend. Delusional fuckers, assholes and shitbags who have NOT spent a moment of their time assessing the facts are on parade to demonstrate what they feel is white repression: how DARE anyone else claim victimhood, whites ARE the power, they are the ones that "built" America, they are the ones in DANGER of losing their majority, kick/kill/murder anyone who says otherwise... and that is the free speech they want to defend.

IF, for some bizarre reason, they were to actually READ the bills being passed, or (gosh) THINK for themselves about the potential consequences of what Dickhead Donald was doing, suddenly the misnomer might reveal itself and reveal that the only FAKERY involved wasn't the news being reported but how Dickhead deliberately lies and mislabels events and his actions. In reality the source of "fake news" is none other than Dickhead himself.

Why else would he be working so hard to hide and obscure information was made public by a prior administration? Why? Because he has THAT much to hide.

Trump still refuses to divest from his real estate and hotel empire or release virtually any of his tax returns. His administration is vigorously pursuing whistleblowers. Among scores of vacant senior jobs in the government is an inspector general for the Department of Energy - led by Secretary Rick Perry, former governor of Texas - as it helps drive the region's recovery from Hurricane Harvey.[..]

"This is an administration that wants to do things their own way and a president that wants to do things his own way," said Rick Blum, director of News Media for Open Government, of which The Associated Press is a member. "(Trump) is frustrated by the institutions our founders established. And he's going to have to learn that the public deserves a free and independent press." (AP)

It's unlikely that tRump supporters will ever realize how badly they're being taken advantage of. It's equally unlikely that they'll ever admit fault, or agree that they were taken in. These are not people who can look back or ponder prior actions. These are pithed-frog people who respond only when poked, people with a total incapacity for self-analysis or awareness. Delusional. Embracing ignorance as a blanket. Putting fingers in their ears and slapping on the blinders because it's the only way they can hold on to hope that the never ending disappointment and disasters of tRump "leadership" is only the dark before the storm.

Of course this self-inflicted blindness also means that smaller governmental structures are ALSO having a field day, taking advantage of the chaos to make local government less transparent as well.

Lawmakers across the country introduced and debated dozens of bills during this year's legislative sessions that would close or limit public access to a wide range of government records and meetings, according to a review by The Associated Press and numerous state press associations.

Most of those proposals did not become law, but freedom-of-information advocates in some states said they were struck by the number of bills they believed would harm the public interest, and they are bracing for more fights next year. (AP)

The US is dividing rapidly into those who drank the Koolaid, with citizens who are happy to embrace ANY schlock so long as it's labelled "patriotic" and "tRump approved" and those who loathe and despise the "Dickhead in chief". The parallels are there between states with more educated, more "liberal" populations versus the less educated, poorer citizenry who are enabling trends against "open government". Those seeking the "quick" solution, those willing to place blind belief in someone who they "feel in their heart" will do the best for them will continue to fail, fail to grasp that hating and hurting is NOT "free speech", fail to recognize that restricting public access to information is NOT a tool to "fight terrorism", fail to act in their own best interests and the interests of their progeny.

I have to give it to Dickhead, he's found the biggest audience for his snakeoil, and there are people who not only love the taste of something that will kill them and their future but will actually clamor for it. Every tRump supporter who is stupid enough to embrace the fantasy and ignore the facts is one more problem that the rest of us have to deal with. Fuck Jonestown, it was small beans. There's a new Jim Jones in charge, and this time he's got the whole US in his sights... and his name is donald tRump.

and... what?

The clowns say they are simply super-fans of hardcore hip-hop duo Clown Posse and the classification has resulted in people being "subjected to various forms of discrimination, harassment, and profiling simply for identifying as a Juggalo". (BBC)

Given the recent release of the movie "It" one rather has to question their sense of timing... or just shrug and assume it all makes sense. Somehow?

"Good" Indeed

Sorry Chelsea, you're not all that.

Ex-acting CIA director Michael Morell has resigned from his post at Harvard over its hiring of Chelsea Manning.[..] On her Twitter page, Ms Manning responded to Mr Morell's departure by writing "good", and said the debate around her appointment was "nothing to do with trans rights". (BBC)

The sad thing is that if her appointment actually HAD to do with trans rights then she'd actually have something to talk about. Truth be told she's got nothing else worth sharing that's of any value. Something that an institution like Harvard would probably realize, eventually.

Harvard University reversed its decision to name Chelsea Manning a visiting fellow early Friday, a day after CIA Director Mike Pompeo scrapped a planned appearance over the title for the soldier who was convicted of leaking classified information.[..]

"We invited Chelsea Manning to spend a day at the Kennedy School," he wrote. "On that basis, we also named Chelsea Manning a Visiting Fellow. We did not intend to honor her in any way or to endorse any of her words or deeds, as we do not honor or endorse any Fellow." (AP)

And lo, they did...

Thing is Chelsea doesn't HAVE anything to add when it comes to cyber security or the role of American foreign policy in sensitive international arenas. She was just a worker bee, nothing more nothing less. That she had access to classified documents doesn't make her special. That she chose to STEAL those classified documents and GIVE them to an enemy, well, that doesn't make her special either, it just makes her a traitor. Lots of people COULD do those things, the vast, vast majority choose not to because they're not assholes and they care about their country, themselves, their families and their fellow citizens.

Chelsea didn't. But whatever, why she chose to fuck over her nation and many, many people is her own business, none of which is lecture worthy. (Here's why I became a traitor... nah, no care, go away.)

Harvard didn't make a mistake in inviting someone who might generate some interesting discussion and points of view, BUT they did make a mistake in awarding her a title, which most anyone would see as an endorsement of some kind. In the process they lost access to a highly capable and credible member of their community, someone who had proven themselves and who certainly wasn't just an ordinary schmuck with classified access. In this Harvard failed.

As for Chelsea, she can go gloat or complain, neither of which really matters. She's a free woman and she can cry if she wants to. Only thing is, it's not Harvard that's throwing the party any more...

Dickhead Donald has a LOT more apologizing to do than ESPN does. In fact nothing ESPN said was actually a lie.

WASHINGTON (AP) -- President Donald Trump is calling on ESPN to apologize days after one of the sports network's anchors called him a "white supremacist" and "bigot."

ESPN said Thursday it had accepted the apology of its "SportsCenter" host Jemele Hill for her tweets about Trump Monday. Hill said Thursday she was sorry for causing her employer trouble.

ESPN has repeatedly said Hill's comments don't reflect the view of the network. But that apparently hasn't satisfied Trump. He demanded on Twitter early Friday that ESPN "Apologize for untruth!"

Dickhead seems to think that whatever he chooses to say is the "truth". The sky is fuschia or water is dry, no matter how outrageous since he's the president it must be fact.

Dickhead is also one of the most delusional people in Washington, which given the number of politicians in residence, is an outstanding accomplishment.

So hey, Dickhead, message to you buddy: before you demand apologies from anyone, why not take a mea culpa moment for yourself eh? Before the list gets so long that you run out of time...

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.

Dickhead believes he's "king" of the US. He's firmly convinced that what he wants, what be believes IS the law and everything else is just a waste of time.

Sept. 11 (UPI) -- Despite public and legal opposition to President Trump's pardoning of Joe Arpaio, former sheriff of Maricopa County, Ariz., the Department of Justice has formally endorsed the move.

On Monday, the DOJ filed court papers requesting the criminal conviction against Arpaio be negated and the case dismissed.

Here, in a nutshell, is Dickhead being very much himself. Fuck the American people. Fuck the laws. Do just as he pleases any way, any how because by the time someone decides it's wrong, illegal or just fucked up the level of effort to do anything about it is beyond comprehension. When you have a "president" who believes himself above the law it takes the full weight of the US Government, acting unanimously, to remedy the situation.

Chances are the GOP will continue to waiver and self-destruct, with some tea-party anarchists more than delighted to see the White House burn and the government fail, meaning that Dickhead can continue his reign of Dicktatership unimpeded. Further, the delusional zombies who voted for Dickhead are equally overjoyed to see the leadership crumble and congress pushed to the breaking point because they have no sense of self preservation, nor care for the consequences of their actions.

A recent poll by NBC News found most Americans and a majority of Arizonians oppose the president's pardoning of Arpaio.

And none of that means anything to the dickhead who would be king.

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.

The news is happy to interview people who feel obliged to share their rationale as to why they're choosing not to evacuate. Most of it is illogical and delusional. News presenters shake their heads and shrug, but it reinforces for other like-minded people that their decision to stay is valid.

There's two sides to that: sure, if you're stupid enough to stay then you deserve what you're going to get vs. the risk you're placing on emergency responders to save your sorry ass.

While the second is truly a tragedy, the first falls into the category of "just desserts" which I'm fine with. If you're the kind of person who believes that god provides for morons who deliberately put themselves in the path of danger, well bully for you, go on test that faith. Also please stand outside with your mouth open as it rains and drown where it'll be easy to find the body. We don't need fools like you voting in the any election.

And to all the first responders who wind up saving damn fools who could have left, I'm sorry. I know this is what you trained for, but saving stupid people is far less romantic than it seems. It's also problematic since they'll be alive to keep making bad decisions that affect the rest of us.

Take your pick.

Hurricane Irma is lashing Cuba with strong winds and heavy rain after devastating several Caribbean islands.

The hurricane made landfall on the Camaguey Archipelago, in Cuba's north-east, as a category five storm. [..]

In Florida, 5.6 million people, or 25% of the US state's population, have been told to leave as the storm approaches. At least 20 people are known to have died so far across the Caribbean. (BBC)

The irony of climate denial is real. And for those who were convinced that tRump was right, that it was a myth propagated by science and liberals to take jobs aware from poor, conservative, white people. Instead they waved their hands, preferring to think that either god was in control of everything (and that god also, cared about them) and that it was just random circumstances if it did happen. There was no trend. That attempts to reduce man-made impact on the environment was unnecessary in their lifetime. That the need to make money now was and is far more important than the health, safety and survival of the future.

Now they have a new choice to make: either paying for or digging out states that are devastated by the weather that WAS predicted or just keep believing that god has a message for them (hint: these are actually the same thing.) The icing on the cake is that those who ARE impacted in those heavily red states are also the ones who complain bitterly about immigration. Immigrants who will fuel the labor engine, immigrants who are absolutely critical to cleaning and rebuilding their homes.

So, now that we're in this, which looks better now? A president who puts business first and human life last? Or one who would have used the nation's resources to take care of everyone regardless of wealth, race and religion?

Bitchy Betsy doesn't think that rapists are getting a fair shake. They're being "unfairly accused" for "just speaking their mind." Basically in her mind all women who go to (non-Christian) colleges are sluts anyway, just getting what they deserve.

The US education department is planning to rewrite Obama-era rules on sexual assault on university campuses, Education Secretary Betsy DeVos says.

She said any new guidance on sexual assault must take into account both the rights of victims and the accused. [..]

She said the definition of sexual assault was too broad and that too many cases involved "students and faculty who have faced investigation and punishment simply for speaking their minds or teaching their classes". (BBC)

The competition for the most horrible person seems to be heating up... for second place that is, Dickhead has the winner's spot all locked up. But Betsy really ratcheted up the ladder with this one. After decades of suffering, rape victims are being pre-shamed by the Secretary of Education who is on a god-sent mission to reduce the number of americans aspiring to education. It's special to watch as she takes aim at public schools by diverting funding to private (read: christian) schools, but it's extra, extra special to see her get out the rusty spikes and two-by-fours to crucify women aspiring to college degrees. She's not far from sharia laws which absolve rapists if they marry their victims.

Betsy knows she's a cunt. Her mission is to deny, deter and reduce the number of un-rich getting education. And she's going to do her damnedest to target the weakest, most vulnerable, most insecure because... well, they're easy targets and cunts like her have no conscience.

The quote below is incomplete.

WASHINGTON (AP) -- Trump says he has 'great love' for young immigrants covered by DACA, says he hopes Congress will act.

President Horribad is still at it, this time taking aim at the most vulnerable target he can: young immigrants. It's amazing how he cries crocodile tears, effectively killing their hopes for a future while passing the buck to congress. He's sooo very sorry, and he cares sooo deeply for them that he's eliminating their path ahead and "hoping" that the congress that has done so little lately for so few will "fix" the problem.

He loves them all right. More specifically he'd love them to leave and never come back.

Kind of the same way we love him.
