It's not even brick by brick, it's more like acre by acre, watching the total disintegration of the health, welfare and social equality of the U.S. of A. At the helm, evil incarnate backed by a screaming, frothing mass of angry, gun-toting, greedbags.
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.
Hey smaller government fans! Here's your latest update!
CHERRY HILL, N.J. (AP) -- The Republican health care plan means less money for states and gives them a tough choice: Find a pot of cash to make up the difference or let coverage lapse for millions of lower-income Americans.
Yep, there you go, the cost of independence. So what will you choose? Paying more in state taxes, or watching people die? I mean what would a GOOD christian choose eh? (Y'all probably choose the death option and justify it somehow with some Biblical reference to support "eh, kill 'em, they didn't contribute much anyway.")
Because in Steve King's world everyone is exactly the same: white, right and uptight.
Senior Republican congressman Steve King has sparked a backlash on social media after tweeting his support for the Dutch anti-Islam politician, Geert Wilders.
"Wilders understands that culture and demographics are our destiny," Mr King wrote on Twitter.
"We can't restore our civilisation with somebody else's babies," he added.
The US Republican representative of Iowa defended his comments on Monday, saying he "meant exactly what he said".(BBC)
So this is our new world order. Thanks to the election of a total fuckwad people aren't just coming out of their racism closet, they're burning that motherfucker down and proudly declaring their hate for those "others". On Steve King's agenda: kill all the black/yellow/brown/red babies. Or at least make life as miserable as possible for those producing them.
So it's just another day in tRumpmerica. Embrace diversity? Lol, only if it means different shades of pure, lily-white asshole.
I like this lady, but then again you knew I would.
AUSTIN, Texas (AP) -- A Texas lawmaker is making a point about legislation that restricts women's access to health care and abortions by proposing to fine men $100 when they masturbate.
Alongside the penalty for wasting semen not resulting in a pregnancy, state Rep. Jessica Farrar's bill would require a "medically unnecessary digital rectal exam" before any man undergoes a vasectomy or can be prescribed Viagra.
The 11th term Democrat tells the Houston Chronicle that her bill mimics how a woman seeking an abortion is forced by Texas law to undergo a transvaginal ultrasound, which "has nothing to do with her health care."
She says while some people think it's funny, her bill highlights the obstacles women face "that were placed there by legislatures making it very difficult for them to access health care."
Jessica Farrar I tip my wig to you. Well done.
The GOP is rushing this though because they don't want their fantasy to come to an end. The truth hurts. Problem is they won't be the ones really suffering.
WASHINGTON (AP) -- Fourteen million Americans would lose coverage next year under House Republican legislation remaking the nation's health care system, and that number would balloon to 24 million by 2026, Congress' budget analysts projected Monday. Their report deals a stiff blow to a GOP drive already under fire from both parties and large segments of the medical industry.[..]
The report also flies in the face of Trump's talk of "insurance for everybody," which he stated in January. He has since embraced a less expansive goal - to "increase access" - advanced by House Speaker Paul Ryan and other Republicans.
The ACA took months of research, commentary and input from all sides of the equation. Yes, those bad, bad democrats did things the RIGHT way by steady measures, research and consultation with experts. The GOP on the other hand doesn't want ANY of the above because they want to take credit before the fact and fuck the consequences. Even if those consequences are people who voted for them.
Good job red-voters! Enjoy your "Great" america. Just don't get sick. Or old.
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!
I guess being white, racist and dickheaded is now "cool" because everyone's trying to get in on the act.
JACKSON, Miss. (AP) -- A top Mississippi lawmaker is blocking an effort to punish universities that refuse to fly the Confederate-themed state flag - a symbol that critics see as racist.
The state House passed a bill Wednesday saying public universities could not receive certain tax breaks unless they display the flag. All eight schools have removed it because of the Confederate battle emblem.
Fucktards like Rep. William Shirley feel obliged to cram their views down the throats of those they're supposed to represent. Even though ALL the universities have removed the confederate flag, he wants to blackmail the institutions of higher learning by withholding state money. Why? Because FLAG. At no point does fuckwad admit that there MIGHT be a problem with what the flag represents, or that it stood for wealthy, white plantation owners trying to hold on to slavery as a way to save their business model. No, it's just "here's the state flag, if you take our money, you need to fly it, BECAUSE."
Which, in itself kinda proves the point as to what the flag really represents. It represents racist assholes who haven't given up their past, or learned from history. It also represents the tRump-merica that we're living in today, rancid and hatefilled like never before.
Oh and hey Willy? By the way, fuck you.
Because i'm pretty sure that between the lot of them this administration has one, maybe two whole ones.
WASHINGTON (AP) -- The new chief of the Environmental Protection Agency [Scott Pruitt] said Thursday he does not believe that carbon dioxide is a primary contributor to global warming, a statement at odds with mainstream scientific consensus and his own agency.
Like that? When quizzed before his confirmation he said he believed (suddenly) that global warming was a thing, and now... well, maybe but it's certainly got nothing to do with the big money that industry pours into this administration. No, not cars, not factories, not burning coal, really the globe is just warming on it's own and fuck all that science-shit that says otherwise.
Know what else I like? How tRump supporters keep saying that they "have to trust him" because it's pretty clear that blind, stupid faith is all they have to go on when the actions and lies get so horrific. Apparently "common sense" isn't just lacking from this administration... Maybe it's something in the water?
How blind are you to pure evil?
March 7 (UPI) -- U.S. Secretary of Homeland Security John Kelly said his agency is considering separating undocumented children from their parents if caught illegally crossing the border.
So when a desperate parent makes a journey WITH their child to the US to find a better life the first thing the US should do is rip that child away from the parent and put it into a holding cell with other children and then what? Somehow this is going to deter adults who have made a dangerous journey, adults who didn't abandon their child at home or send them alone to the US. Yep, compassionate, caring america is now the hate-filled, anger-seething, calculating nation which would "punish" anyone trying to come here illegally by tearing their child away from them.
So in my mind this registers as: inhuman, evil, vile, brutal, and probably even more in violation of human rights than some of our worst enemies. Tearing children from parent to what, teach the PARENT a lesson? Fuck what it does to the kid?
You know I saw somewhere a sign that said "Your vote was a hate crime." And honestly, with this administration it certainly is coming down to that.
John Kelly, you're a filthy, vile, scumbag of a person if you even CONSIDER doing this.
President Donald Trump is taking note of Wednesday's U.N.-designated International Women's Day, and asking his Twitter followers to join him in "honoring the critical role of women" in the United States and around the world.[..] Trump tweets that he has "tremendous respect for women and the many roles they serve that are vital to the fabric of our society and our economy."
Fuck you you filthy hypocrite. Fuck you.
If you're on Obamacare (ACA to you morons who don't realize it's the same thing) and you voted for tRump I have one message for you: YOU'RE FUCKING STUPID.
WASHINGTON (AP) -- The House Republicans' health care bill adds up to big tax cuts for the rich. The bill would cut more than 20 taxes enacted under President Barack Obama's heath law, saving taxpayers nearly $600 billion over the next decade. The bulk of the money would go to the wealthiest Americans.
If you have healthcare and you voted for tRump then you're a selfish fuckstick and chances are someone you know or someone you're related to is going to suffer the consequences of your stupidity. Way to go asshole.
"There were other immigrants who came here in the bottom of slave ships, worked even longer, even harder for less. But they too had a dream that one day their sons, daughters, grandsons, granddaughters, great grandsons, great granddaughters might pursue prosperity and happiness in this land." - Ben Carson
OK!! Ben Carson....I can't! Immigrants ? In the bottom of SLAVE SHIPS??!! MUTHAFUKKA PLEASE!!!#dickheadedtom - Samuel L. Jackson in response
Nope. Got nothing to add to that. Nope, not a thing. Slaves = dreamers. *nodds* Awesome. Just. Fucking. Awesome.
Dickhead Donald can go suck a congress full of dicks. And choke on them. If, that is, he can get his own (tiny) dick out of his mouth to do it.
WASHINGTON (AP) -- President Donald Trump has offered to maintain federal funding for Planned Parenthood if the group stops providing abortions. Its president spurned the proposal and noted that federal money already is not allowed to be used for abortion.
Women's health is a fundamental right. Government has no business telling women what they can or can't do with respect to their minds, bodies or future. Small government? More privacy? YES - FOR ALL.
Go suck a dick Donald. Go suck all of them.
The stupid isn't stopping. Actually it's picking up speed and taking all of us with it.
A U.S. official tells The Associated Press that the FBI has asked the Justice Department to dispute allegations made on Twitter by President Donald Trump that Barack Obama as president ordered the tapping of Trump's phones during the presidential campaign[..] The New York Times reports that FBI Director James Comey has argued that the claim is false and has to be corrected. (AP)
So here we have a dangerously delusional man "in charge" and the government powerless, or unwilling, to stop it. Everyone is aware that he's a pathological liar, but no one seems to have a solution to the empty accusations, empty promises that are being flung around with increasing and frightening speed. Trump throws lies faster than a monkey slings poo and yet some people are still supporting him.
Never, in the history of the US, has someone so obviously in need of medical help been put in the most prominent spot. Never have we ever been in as much danger from one person. Compared to Nero, tRump seems as unstable as Charles Manson and about as deadly.
Danger, danger Will Robinson. It's tRumps world, and we just live in it. Maybe not for much longer.
He's really reaching.
Mr Trump had tweeted: "Terrible! Just found out Obama had my "wires tapped" in Trump Tower just before the victory. Nothing found. This is McCarthyism!"[..] He gave no details to back the claim. (BBC)
At some point just "making shit up" is going to come back to chew him up. My guess is that it already has, and that's why they're getting bigger and more egregious. Still it supports the claim that he's a total moron, since obviously he doesn't recall what happens when a President lies.
Damn fool, you're just embarrassing yourself now.
