I'm Not Gloating

Yeah, like fuck I'm not.

Presenter Bill O'Reilly has been dropped from Fox News over sexual harassment claims, the company says. "After a thorough and careful review of the allegations... Bill O'Reilly will not be returning," the network said in a one-sentence statement. (BBC)

Notice how the category says "Ha ha ha ha Fuck You"? Well yes, that's right bitch. LATER FUCKTARD. Much, much later.


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.


And the LAST thing a newly crowned DICKtater wants to hear is that not everyone wants him, not everyone loves him and that everyone KNOWS he cheated.

ANKARA, Turkey (AP) -- Turkish President Erdogan rejects OSCE vote monitors' findings, tells group to 'know your place'

The vote monitors have proof that anti-Erdogan voters were prevented from voting, that unstamped votes in his favor were quietly accepted and that the ultra-slim margin that he won with is a total fraud.

That said, the disease continues to spread. People happily throwing away their rights and freedoms for the "myth" of a quieter, richer, more homogeneous life.

You poor, stupid, ignorant idiots. Now you can have a DICKtater for the next 10 fucking years...


Persecution, mutilation, murder and terror of those who are "different" from the mainstream is as old as mankind. Of course, we're not carrying spears and clubs any more, nor do we trade with sea shells and glass beads as currency. But while we've grown out of some of our less-than-useful attributes, fucktards the world over are lamenting one side effect of civilization: not being able to persecute, mutilate, murder and terrorize randomly and with impunity.

MOSCOW (AP) -- The leader of Chechnya has lashed out at international organizations that have strongly criticized the Russian region for reportedly persecuting and killing gays.[..]
Kadyrov says international organizations are conducting a "massive information attack ... using the most unworthy methods, reality is distorted, attempts are being made to blacken our society, lifestyle, traditions and customs."

Yes there it is once again, "our culture" is the justification for oppressing and destroying the lives of those deemed "different". Because in the past they were able to torture and kill gays it's something not just socially acceptable but demanded by their culture, and taking that ability away, or making them feel badly about it, means that the tables have turned and now the oppressors are being oppressed.

I often believe that this is precisely what defines someone as a "sane human" vs. someone not sufficiently evolved to be allowed an equal vote in governance. Do you believe that your religion, culture or history allows you to hurt another person? Yes? Sorry, no vote for you. Kthxbai.


Hey Dickhead Donald!! Get this: people can spend their OWN money when they want to. Yes, there actually IS money in America that YOU don't own.

CHICAGO (AP) -- President Donald Trump says "someone should look into who paid" for the rallies around the country Saturday that urged him to release his tax returns.
Trump tweeted Sunday: "I did what was an almost an impossible thing to do for a Republican-easily won the Electoral College! Now Tax Returns are brought up again?"

Ok, first yeah, I'm not falling for the red-herring lie about winning the electoral college shit. You BARELY won fucktard. Also you LOST the popular vote. TRUMP IS AN UNPOPULAR LOSER PRESIDENT. There we go, brushed aside. Onward.

Who paid for? Let's see, how about ALL THE PEOPLE WHO VOTED AGAINST YOU? Plus maybe all the people you've pissed off since? You're not a fucking King, moron. You're a publicly elected official, acting like a king, of course, or more correctly, like a little boy. An ignorant, uneducated, fibbing little tyrant.

And America, as defined by the majority of people living in it. Hates you.


Because he's killing in the name of "god". That pretty much makes him no different than anyone else killing in the name of god.

Governor Hutchinson says he is confident that the drugs will work as expected, and that he is satisfied the prison staff can handle the executions, six of which are happening over only three days.[..]
"I have a responsibility to the voters, I have a responsibility to my oath of office, but I also have responsibility to a higher power, God and eternity, and I understand that," he said.
"I feel comfortable in my understanding of my responsibilities both in terms of faith and scripture and in terms of as governor." (BBC)

Yes he's "comfortable" killing people. Because he's "comfortable" that god is totally behind this and the bible says so.

About the only thing I'm "comfortable" with is living many, many states away from a religious zealot who justifies killing by the application of myths rather than rule of law.

You're pretty fucked up there Asa, and I'm pretty comfortable that other people feel the same way too...


...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.


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...


I'm having a hard time figuring out how they'll top themselves, but sure as shit, the tRumpsterfucks do it again and again. You'd think I'd learn by now.

SYCAMORE, Pa. (AP) -- Environmental Protection Agency Administrator Scott Pruitt told dozens of Pennsylvania coal miners Thursday that the "regulatory assault" on their industry is over, and that the environment can be protected without hurting business.

How exactly does that work? More coal = cleaner environment how? Not sure? I know I sure the fuck ain't, but this administration doesn't value truth, logic or science so maybe in their world magic can happen and suddenly coal won't clog the air and fuck the future of mankind. Also aliens. And the apocalypse. tRump is also the Holy Trinity, all by himself.

President Donald Trump has threatened to withhold key Obamacare subsidies for health insurers in order to force Democrats to negotiate a new deal.
Insurers say if the reimbursements to help cover out-of-pocket medical expenses for the poor are cut, it could send Obamacare into a death spiral.
But Mr Trump said the move might force Democrats to the negotiating table.
His comments come three weeks after Republicans failed to secure a bill to overhaul the US healthcare system.
"I don't want people to get hurt," he told the Wall Street Journal in an interview on Wednesday. (BBC)

Like that? If the government renegs on it's part of the deal, meaning to actually PAY for reimbursements THEN people will die and suddenly the people who care about their dying and suffering constituents (meaning the Dems in this case) will come begging Herr Dickhead to negotiate with them. Really. Also aliens. And the apocalypse. tRump is also the Holy Trinity, all by himself.

Wonder how those tRump voters on the ACA feel about this? Of course if they're dead they won't be feeling much at all. Pretty awesome huh? A president who actually doesn't mind killing a few citizens just to save his pride. Cool. Voters wanted different, and boy are they getting a double handful.


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.


Who the hell is Arturo Di Modica? Well for one thing, he's all about a lot of bull.

NEW YORK (AP) -- The sculptor of Wall Street's "Charging Bull" statue is accusing New York City of violating his legal rights by allowing the "Fearless Girl" statue to be installed facing the bronze beast, without his permission .
Attorney Norman Siegel told The Associated Press that Arturo Di Modica will explain at a news conference Wednesday exactly how he's challenging city officials who issued a permit for the bronze girl to stay until February.

Arty is pissed off. His bull is being challenged by a little girl and it "changes the dynamic." The answer to that, of course, is: "Well Duh."

Arty, don't be any more of a tool then you have to. If your art is strong, then it's strong enough to have other art around. Fuck, you dumb moron, you don't see other artists complaining when their art is juxtaposed with other artists efforts in museums do you? Manhattan is a living, breathing museum, subject to change and really if one of the two works has to go then tough bull eh? I mean it's not very "original" after all...


Guns, guns, lots of guns, everyone with guns, has ones to kill... Sing it with me now!

A Chicago man fatally shot his 22-year-old son after an argument over who would walk the dog erupted into a gunfight between them, say police. (BBC)

Guns + temper = dead. Unfortunately there's no way to eliminate temper from humans, but having a gun is a choice, not a necessity for the typical person at home.

And then someone you love or loved or didn't even know at all winds up dead in the time it takes not to think and pull the trigger.

Guns, guns, lovely guns, so much funz...


Fly the Fuck You Skies.

You're in Chicago, and you board a United flight to Louisville. Why anyone would want to go there is beyond me, but let's accept the premise. United has naturally fully booked (probably overbooked) the flight. The passengers all board and prepare to continue their journey. Then, United realizes it needs to get four of it's own employees to Louisville. So it asks for people to volunteer to get off for a hotel room and $400. No one takes it. So they go to $800. No one takes that either. Then they decide to randomly pick people to get off. The first two they pick get off without hassle. The third... well... this is where they get into some trouble.

The third man refused to get off because he needed to get where he was going. He said he was a doctor and had patients to see. So, United was of course very understanding. So understanding that they call the cops, tried to forcibly remove the man, knocked him out by smashing his head against an armrest, and dragged his unconscious and bleeding body body down the aisle and off the plane. In front of a plane load of people with cell phones, they thought they'd get away with that. Eventually, he was allowed to re-board the plane, with blood still on his forehead but was clearly disoriented (concussed I'd assume). Then they deplaned everyone so United could "tidy up".

So, let me start with this:


Now, let move on to the rest. United response? Check this:

“Flight 3411 from Chicago to Louisville was overbooked. After our team looked for volunteers, one customer refused to leave the aircraft voluntarily and law enforcement was asked to come to the gate. We apologize for the overbook situation.”

That's it. They're sorry they overbooked.


Ok, let start with the fact that the man could have avoided this if he'd been a sheep. He could have bent over and allow United to fuck him. Or allow the transit cops to do the same. But instead, he stood his ground and was beated down for it. Now, he broke no laws. United had no legal reason for asking him to leave. He wasn't s a disturbance until AFTER they asked him to leave. The cops therefore shouldn't have any authority to remove him. At that point, they were only there to enforce company policy, not legal code. Moreso because the company had tried to bribe people to get off the plane, and only stopped raising the fee in order to save money. I bet for $2000 or $5000 someone either volunteers to gets off the plane, or United finds another way to deal with getting employees to Kentucky. So, these officers were just thugs, even before they smashed a mans head into the armrest. I really hope they get charged with assault, but we all know they won't.

This isn't quite the worst case PR scenario for United. I mean, preventing a doctor from seeing his patients is bad. Holy crap is it heartless and stupid. But it could have been a person flying to a wedding, birth, or funeral. Can you imagine if he'd been flying to his mother's deathbed? And got there too late because of this crap? The sad thing is that it doesn't really matter why he was flying. Every person on that flight thought that it wasn't worth $800 to get off and fly later. They all had places they wanted to go. NO ONE puts up with going through the hassle of going to an airport, getting molested by TSA, and waiting forever and a day to get on board a flight just because. They all needed to go somewhere. And it doesn't matter if it's a doctor with patients, a person with a dying family member or a stripper going to her next gig. This sort of bullshit is far to common with airlines anymore. And the idea that they think they can use transit cops as armed thugs to enforce company will is terrifying.

Personally, I'll be really sad if this man walks away without pressing criminal charges on the cop and settling for at least 5 million from United. The police need to understand that they're not corporate thugs, and are responsible for the safety of the passengers, not the bottom line of the airline. More importantly, when they're not enforcing the law, they're personally responsible for their actions (in this case, assault). And the corporation needs a firm slap to make it understand that overbooking has penalties.

As for that statement.... holy crap. I don't see how any human being could be heartless enough to write it up. They must have hired a true lizard person style lawyer to be that cold. One person refused to voluntarily leave the plane? I think it's safe to say that the other two people didn't leave voluntarily either. You tried to bribe them, and they rejected it. They were just less willing to push the issue once you threatened them. More than that nugget, you don't even mention that you are directly responsible for the actions of your thugs? That your corporate greed and mismanagement directly lead to a situation that you handled this fucking badly? That your strong-arms brutalized a man and potentially gave him a concussion? That they did so in full view of children? Let alone the rest of the plane load of passengers?

In case it needs to be said again,


And whoever wrote that statement... I really hope that you end up buried to your neck surrounded by fire ants.


Because idiots will keep believing you.

At a news conference with Jordan's King Abdullah II on Wednesday, Trump said: "We had a very, very fine delegation come over from Egypt, and also from Iraq. And they said more has been done in the last six weeks than has been done in years with the previous administration, and believe me, we're going to keep it that way."
THE FACTS: There was far more progress against IS over the past year than in the last six weeks. The military campaign against the group has been building slowly. More cities have been recaptured from the militants, and IS has lost large swaths of territory in Iraq and Syria. However, the two biggest, climactic battles - to retake Mosul, Iraq, and Raqqa, Syria - have not been completed. (AP)

The tRump method: Do Nothing, Take All The Credit Due Others. Lie. Ignore Facts. Make Shit Up On The Fly. Threaten People Who Point Out Facts. Threaten More People. Get Rich Off Stupid People. Have No Moral Compass or Conscience.


PALM BEACH, Fla. (AP) -- President Donald Trump cast the United States assault on a Syrian air base as vital to deter future use of poison gas and called on other nations to join in seeking "to end the slaughter and bloodshed in Syria."

tRump attacked Russia via bombing a Syrian air base. Here's why:

*Because he's been itching to use his new toy: The US Military *Because he wants to show his rival Putin that he too can fire rockets indiscriminately and get away with it *Because it distracts from the ongoing scandal over Russia *Because killing people isn't a concern *Because it proves that more bombs, like more bullets, are a viable solution to any problem *Because using your words is hard and takes thinking *Because "Moar Attenshun" *Because why the fuck have bombs if you don't use them? Now we can buy more *Because ramdom caring is better than no caring *Because fanclub idiots (read "Trumpanzees") can now have something new to wave flags about and coo about how "great" we're making America by bombing other countries

Oh yeah and one more.

Because totally fucked up people do totally fucked up shit.


1+ 1 = 5 In Utah

I'm sorry, show me the PROOF that allowing rich people to put their kids into expensive schools benefits ALL kids in a state. You can't.

PHOENIX (AP) -- Republican Arizona lawmakers on Thursday dramatically expanded a school voucher program by extending eligibility to all 1.1 million state schoolchildren despite vehement opposition from Democrats who believe it will undercut public education and cost taxpayers untold millions of dollars.
It now heads to Republican Gov. Doug Ducey, who tweeted that he expected to sign the measure Thursday night.

I'm calling bullshit Doug Duces. There is NO proof whatsoever that siphoning money from public schools will raise the quality of education for all. Your math is as faulty as your logic, which, I might add, is pretty fucking sad for an adult. But hey, it's not about logic is it? Or reason? Or even the children, it's about power and sticking it to the poor, the underfunded and the opposition. It's about weakening the already weak and ensuring that kids who barely have a chance will get none.

It's about being a fucktard for the sake of fucktardery. It's the GOP agenda. The few, the rich, the powerful. Fuck everyone else.
