Most of us are familiar with the feeling of not wanting to go to work. Most of us, however, don't want it so badly that we'd burn the factory down. Not Dickhead, however...

President Donald Trump has said he would "love to see" the US government shut down if Congress does not agree an immigration deal.

"If we don't change it let's have a shutdown. We'll do a shutdown, and it's worth it for our country," he said. (BBC)

That's right. Because Dickhead can't get his way, because he's not getting plaudits and huzzahs, because people DARE to disapprove and disagree then everything should stop. No work should get done. Public servants should be sent home. All progress should cease. This is the "president". President? What kind of leader not only encourages but celebrates chaos and discontinuity?

Only one kind: Dickhead Donald.

It's his world. He owns it. We just have to live here.

President Idiot Has A Sad

Suddenly it should be against the law not to love the President. Seems like yet another page from the "petty dictator" handbook.

US President Donald Trump has called Democratic lawmakers' failure to appreciate his State of the Union address last week "treasonous" and "un-American". "They certainly didn't seem to love our country very much," he said during a visit to a manufacturing plant in Cincinnati, Ohio. "It's very very sad." (BBC)

Yes it's "treasonous" not to be cheering wildly for Dickhead Donald. At least in his opinion. I like how equates himself with the nation, a poorly worded version of l'etat c'est moi.

Even North Korean dictators have more dignity, they hire thugs to threaten people into cheering, or quietly disappear politicians who don't show the appropriate enthusiasm. Dickhead doesn't even have that level of sophistication.

Ingrid Duran hates her own gender. Thus far she's been pretty successful at mustering support for the restriction of women's rights, Nazi-collaborator style, to disenfranchise women over the control of their own bodies.

Ingrid is pretty much the definition of raw evil.

Ingrid Duran, director of state legislation at the National Right to Life Committee, said the model state laws drafted by her group are aimed at U.S. Supreme Court Justice Anthony Kennedy, a swing vote who wrote the court's 2007 opinion upholding a federal ban on a procedure critics call partial-birth abortion.

She said the court could use similar reasoning to prohibit dilation and evacuation and noted it has never considered whether states have an interest in protecting fetuses from pain.

"We did draft these laws with the bigger picture in mind," Duran said (AP)

That bigger picture is the total enslavement of women to their organs. Rape? Doesn't matter. Incest? Totally ok. Fetal abnormality that ends in the immediate death of the fetus when it's born? Sure! Because it's not her suffering, her pain, the risk to her life. No, it's just some other faceless woman who she's more than happy to abuse for power, attention and religion.

Ingrid, fuck you. You're a hateful slut whose only goal in life is to enforce suffering on women and babies. Fuck you to hell.

At what point did the GOP ever try to care about non-white, non-binary, non-male citizens? Answer? Fuck that you know the answer.

WASHINGTON (AP) -- The Republican National Committee is siding with President Donald Trump on his order to bar transgender individuals from serving in the U.S. military.

It doesn't fucking MATTER that the military is past all that. It doesn't fucking MATTER that soldiers deserve respect, no matter who they are. It doesn't fucking matter that the majority of American's don't agree with this kind of stupid, dickless, brainless, hateful bigotry. It just makes them feel good, is all.

It really takes a special type of egotistical, hate-fuck to keep on trucking down this anti-trans, anti-gay road. Fact is that NONE of these shitstains represent their voters, their state or this nation. Fact is, it makes them FEEL better because they're all pussies, willing to attack soldiers who are ready to defend America because they don't want to be assaulted by a vocal minority of religious-filth.

Fuck you RNC. Fuck you Dickhead Donald. You have no balls, no morals and no pride. You're not worthy to even TALK about those serving our nation. Scumbags. Go on, waste more taxpayer money on your stupidity.

Guess which state I'm talking about, go on, guess. The most ultra-conservative, the most gun-loving, the most bible-thumping...

INDIANAPOLIS (AP) -- Newly released federal figures show a sharp rise in child abuse fatalities in the U.S., with the bulk of the increase occurring in two states - Indiana and Texas - where child-welfare agencies have been in disarray.

According to a report released this week by the Department of Health and Human Services, there were 1,700 fatalities resulting from child maltreatment reported in fiscal year 2016, compared to 1,589 the previous year - a 7 percent increase. The figures encompass data from every state but Maine, as well as from the District of Columbia and Puerto Rico.

Accounting for most of the increase were Texas, where fatalities jumped from 162 to 217, and Indiana, where the death toll more than doubled from 34 to 70.

Yes, the state trying the HARDEST to outlaw abortion is also the state with the highest child abuse death rates. AND, in this period of blindingly stupid ultra-ultra-conservatism abusers are having a fucking FIELD DAY. They must love the fact that the crackdown on women and women's rights means more fodder for their pedo-mill.

But that's pretty much how the story goes: the fanatical pro-life brigade couldn't give two shits about the child being born. They're keen to stand out in the cold and demand that women be slaves to their reproductive systems, but as for the suffering of the child after it's born? Fuck no. No interest. No investment. No love.

Frankly if I were going to get beaten, raped, abused or murdered as a toddler I'd much rather not be born at all. But pro-lifers aren't really about the babies, they're about themselves and their desire to be "above" others. They're selfish fuckwads who could care less about a child's quality of life than their morality metrics.

Pro life: because the only life you care about is your own.

Indiana doesn't think that hate crimes exist. In fact they encourage you to come visit and assault the minority of your choice!

INDIANAPOLIS (AP) -- Indiana will remain one of just five states without a hate crimes law after key lawmakers in the GOP-dominated Senate announced Tuesday that they were abandoning a bill targeting crimes motivated by bias.[..]

A deep thread of social conservatism runs throughout the state and lawmakers, headed into an election year, faced intense pressure from activists who argue that creating a hate crimes law would create a special protected class of victims.[..]

The bill by Glick, a former county prosecutor from LaGrange County, would have specifically allowed a judge to take into account whether a crime was motivated by someone's race, religion, color, sex, gender identity, disability, national origin, ancestry, sexual orientation or ethnicity. It would also require such crimes to be reported to the FBI. Currently, Indiana law enforcement agencies are not required to do so.

Keep in mind business were all for bringing Indiana into the modern age, because companies like Amazon, who were considering bringing investment to the state actually care about how the state manage it's moral and ethical responsibilities. Or, put in other words, Amazon and companies like Amazon don't want to be seen as supporting bigots, fascists and nazis.

But hey, Indiana GOP don't care about feelings n' shit, because only pussies cry about getting beat up. And putting the smack down on blacks, women, and muslims is totally in FASHION these days. So fuck that noise.

Of course I'm sure Amazon will notice and take their business elsewhere but then who cares if a few thousand jobs go to one of the 45 states that DO have laws against hate crimes. Poor and stupid. Two things that go together like Indiana and hate crimes.

You know what "Mufti" is supposed to mean? It's supposed to be "wise man". Keep that in mind as you read what this jackass said.

LUCKNOW, India (AP) -- A senior cleric at an influential Islamic seminary in northern India has issued a religious decree saying that Muslim women should not watch men playing soccer.

Mufti Athar Kasmi said that watching men "playing with bare knees" violated the tenets of Islam and was forbidden for women. Kasmi is cleric at Darul Uloom, Asia's largest Sunni Muslim seminary in the northern town of Deoband.

The cleric also lashed out at the men who allow their wives to watch football even on television.

"Do you have no shame? Do you not fear God? You let her watch these kinds of things," he said in his sermon Friday.

Yes that's right, women will be CORRUPTED if they see a NAKED KNEE. Of which there are millions around in public anyway as men often wear shorts in hot weather. Like in India.

Bahahahahahahahahhaah. Goddamn, what a fucking idiot. Wow. Just goes to show that there's isn't any certifying board to get your Mufti-degree. Just about any yobbo can get one for a candy wrapper and a rupee.

Destiny is, for the most part, very old news by now. The game came out. It was fun for a short while (certainly not $60 worth of while, more like $45, but you pay for early access and the excitement before people realize they've been had.) And the fun is over now. It's pretty much dead and what community remains is only waiting for Fortnite to take off.

But in the mean time there is some fun to be had, mostly in the form of Bungie's replies to the community on issues big and small, which plague the game. Not the least of which is a limited inventory which keeps getting filled up with garbage shaders which take time and effort on the part of the user to remove. Kinda like mold on bread.

Of course Bungie knows this, they've been told, but in typical "we know better" form Bungie pisses off yet more users by gamesplaining basic concepts to people who mastered killing bosses while standing in a pit of acid while rotating locations within seconds of shooting different icons located at many corners of the room, while being attacked by adds. In other words WE'RE NOT FUCKING MORONS. But hey, Bungie still likes to talk down to their "paying" users.

Tyson Green: Shaders are individual items, and individual items trigger individual reward bundles when dismantled, even when those rewards are simple. That creates a challenge for us that we haven’t yet addressed, which is triggering dozens (or hundreds) of reward bundles simultaneously when an entire stack of shaders is dismantled. This is challenging not simply because an arbitrary number of rewards need to be run and delivered simultaneously, but because we also have to safeguard against scenarios where this produced items that couldn’t fit in your inventory, which could be instantly lost (ex: shaders that produce Glimmer could easily evaporate into nothing if you were at or near the cap.) for more read here

So yeah, shaders. They give them to you, you don't get a choice to not take them. They come in endless varieties, except they actually don't, they come in a few varieties but with endless variations: red, white, blue, black then shiny red, white, blue, black, then red, reflective white, blue, black, then red, white, textured blue, black, then red, white, blue and flat black and ALL OF THESE ARE "DIFFERENT".

Actually they're all the same, hideous, the "nice" ones are rare and you can buy them for real money once the event where you got two of them (which was only up for a week) is over. But anger against microtransactions is a different rant.

So yeah, this shit just piles up. I literally have over 150 of some of these more garbage shaders (Gods help you person who designed "Blue Geometry" if I ever find out who you are you will taste my wrath) and since I'm fucking NOT going to spend 150 clicks-and-hold minutes of my life deleting them they pile up. AND THERE'S NO OTHER WAY TO GET RID OF THEM.

I mean yeah, there's good and bad ways to enhance the user experience and have users spend more time in game. BUT THIS IS NOT ONE OF THEM.

Frankly the whole shader thing is stupid anyway, while gear comes in a variety of base colors and patterns frankly any ONE shader is fine for all of them, being able to shade each item is overkill and it's not like I'm ever going to have shiny boots and flat gloves in the same scheme. Also did I mention that 40% of the schemes are fucking hideous anyway? Watermelon? Iridescent watermelon? OMG WHY?

So yeah, the whole "it's hard" is stupid. The notion that they have to break some sort of basic paradigm to implement it properly is far fetched, especially when you factor in that the currency ("glimmer") is basically worthless since you can't fucking buy anything like weapons, armor or shaders WITH it. You know what Bungie, I don't even WANT anything when I delete the shader, keep your virtual Bitcoin crap, just let me delete it so I don't have to see it any more.

Oh well, like I said, game is done. They fucked up. It could have gone for a while but no, the devs are going to stick to their story and tell users how they have to enjoy the game or fuck off.

Think I'll pick fuck off.

Who is Sally Reynolds?

Last year, Cate's mum Sally Reynolds bought six tickets to see the band in concert on 1 September at the South of England Event Centre in Sussex.

Sally is deaf and booked for herself and two deaf friends to go with their daughters who are all able to hear.

In order that she and her two friends could fully access the performance, Sally asked the organisers, LHG Live, to provide a British Sign Language interpreter.

She was initially offered carer tickets and told that she could bring her own interpreter, but she didn't consider that met her needs or amounted to full access.

Speaking exclusively to the BBC, Sally explained: "We asked two or three times, please can you provide the interpreter for us, and the explanation we got back was just a 'no'.

"It didn't have any reason behind it and eventually we became so frustrated.

"I wanted to share the same experience my daughter had - essentially I just wanted access to the songs." (BBC)

Long story short, Sally decided to sue. And in the end the performance WAS supported by a sign-language interpreter... but not the opening acts and Sally was PISSED.

Ok, let's start with, it's sad that Sally is deaf. It's sad that technology hasn't provided Sally with a way to recover her hearing, but technology HAS provided Sally with voice-to-text translation options. It's equally sad that Sally feels that she is entitled to be supported, nurtured, and assisted by others just because. Honestly, being provided an extra ticket seems quite fair, but no, that wasn't good enough. She "wanted the same experience."

Sally, no amount of money, inclusion, or support is going to give the you "same experience". The same way that blind people can't ever get the same experience from a sunset, you will never get the same experience as your daughter. You can, however, come across as greedy-balls selfish and arrogant.

In a time where society is recognizing and advancing the quality of life for the disabled, especially in the nation you live in, you're being stuck up stupid. People will use you as a reason to exclude, not include, and you're hurting the cause not helping. Except yourself.

So, how did your 15 minutes of fame work out for you?

Called It

Remember back two posts when I said Kentucky values guns over kids? Well here's the proof.

In Kentucky, West's bill is one of at least two that would allow more guns into Kentucky's public schools and on college campuses. They reflect sentiments that have found bipartisan support in a conservative state whose politicians routinely pose in ads with guns, and where the National Rifle Association held its 2016 national convention. The NRA has an outsized influence in many state elections and the resulting gun policy debates in those legislatures.

"You know, we're in Kentucky," said Ralph Alvarado, a Republican state senator and medical doctor who co-sponsored West's legislation. "This debate always comes up, restricting gun use in the state. I'm just adamantly opposed to it. It's a constitutional right that we have. It's one of those things that it's going to be tough to ever get that kind of a concept through. (AP)

So it's not about putting KIDS in school, it's about putting GUNS in school. Like that? A "doctor" who believes that the "constitutional right" to kill is more valuable than the right to learn.

You'd think even a doctor would understand that less bullets = less death. But no. It's about being all "Kentucky", which I suppose means fucking stupid.

Yep, when it comes to meeting and exceeding expectations in the "fucking retarded" category, this administration has it all locked up.

WASHINGTON (AP) -- Senate Republicans needed a deciding vote from Vice President Mike Pence to advance Kansas Gov. Sam Brownback's bid to be ambassador for international religious freedom in the Trump administration.

Pence arrived in the chamber Wednesday afternoon and cast the final vote to cut off debate on Brownback's nomination. That clears the way for a final vote to confirm Brownback in the post.

Senators voted along party lines, 50-49. Republican Sens. John McCain of Arizona and Bob Corker of Tennessee were absent.

Ok, no one disagrees that Brownback is a waste of air and space. He wrecked his state, now he can do damage internationally by spewing hate and rhetoric about how Christians are being repressed. No one for a MOMENT actually believes that this fuckwad cares a shit about other religions, so it has NOTHING whatsoever to do with "actual" religious freedom, say for example the Rohingya, but rather it's proselytizer-in-chief.

It's just another tRump boondogle: taxpayer money to force Christianity down throats in other nations. Crusades 2018.

Because guaranteed, this won't even make them blink when it comes to considering gun limits.

BENTON, Ky. (AP) -- A tight-knit rural community reflected Wednesday on the hometown horror of a school shooting that killed two teenagers, injured 18 and sent hundreds of others fleeing for their lives from a place many considered immune from violence. [..] Throughout a community where practically everyone knows each other -- Benton, the nearest town, has about 4,300 people -- people were initially shocked, saying "We can't believe this is happening to us," Patrick Adamson, a church youth director, said Wednesday.

The only "backlash" expected is increased gun sales. As far as the NRA is concerned every gun-related tragedy is free PR. They LOVE massacres because they get new opportunities to explain that MORE BULLETS equals MORE SAFETY. Of course if you replace the word "bullets" with "bombs" it's pretty easy to see that line of reasoning is just fucking retarded, but hey, gun owners WANT to believe that by having the ability to "kill back" they're safer.

It has yet to be proven.

But you know, this is Kentucky, where they'll justify lack of intelligent action as piety. Whatever.

I won't bother posting a link to Charlotte's video because it's not worth your time, I can summarize it in a sentence: "Men Are Ok, Feminists Are Bad, Sexual Harassment is Overblown."

Charlotte I'd like to thank you for oversimplifying and demystifying what, for many, is a complex issue. Clearly Feminists are hysterical McCarthyites who have moved beyond burning bras into collecting trophy jock-straps from those they have brought down. Yes, it's terrible and sad that rich, wealthy, powerful men have been put on notice that grabbing twats isn't allowed any more. And yes, it's overblown when a woman is raped, maligned, doused with acid, harmed or abused in any way. I mean it was ok before, why not now?

Yes Charlotte, you're right, a little harmless "grope and tumble" against a woman's will isn't a bad thing now and then. But I suppose until it happens to you it's just a reason to make a video eh?

I apologize to Penis's all over the world for that association above. You're (mostly) not as shriveled and pathetic as Mike.

Lie #1

Pence says before a dinner in Jerusalem with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu (neh-ten-YAH'-hoo) that the shutdown is ending "thanks to the firm stand taken by President Trump" and congressional Republicans. (AP)

Truth: Dickhead Donald did nothing. He ran and hid when he broke the government. Then he waited for someone else to step forward and fix the situation. If by "firm stand" you mean "sucking his thumb in the back of a closet" then sure! We agree!

Lie #2

Vice President Mike Pence says reports that an adult film star had an alleged affair with President Donald Trump are "baseless allegations." (AP)

Truth: Dickhead did fuck Stormy Daniels. He even did it while he was married. He even got her a few bags of hush money not to say anything about it, but no big deal, right? It's not like adultery is a sin or something.

Lie #3

Mike Pence on Monday defended President Donald Trump on his recent comments disparaging immigration from Africa and Haiti, telling The Associated Press that the president's "heart" is aimed at a merit-based system that is blind to immigrants' "race or creed." (AP)

Truth: Well this is on the edge since Mike didn't DENY that Dickhead called African nations "shitholes". He only diverted attention from infantile language that doesn't befit a president and concepts that don't befit ANY adult with an unverifiable sentiment. Fact is that Dickhead already tried an immigration ban based on race and followed that up with "I only want White People from Norway." So no way he's a racist. Maybe.

Because it's the details that really matter.

WASHINGTON (AP) -- The White House says President Donald Trump is focused on minimizing the harm [..] through the government shutdown.[..]

Trump has been criticized for not meeting with lawmakers since a lunch Friday with Democratic New York Sen. Chuck Schumer.

Trump also hasn't appeared in public since Friday. The White House released photos showing him in the Oval Office on Saturday and meeting with staff.

Budget director Mick Mulvaney says he's meeting with Trump later Monday to go over the "mechanics" of a shutdown.

Sure Dickhead is "focused on minimizing the harm" of a government shutdown TO HIMSELF. Dickhead hasn't appeared in public because the Ceremonial President Bather, Ceremonial President Food-Cutter, Ceremonial President Adorner of Clothes are all missing. And Dicky hasn't had to do those things for himself for.. well, forever. He's still probably standing in front of the Presidential toilet wondering which lever makes the "flush" sound.

Madam, whomever you are, I salute you. That slogan is so on point it hurts. Literally.

The White House has changed its answering machine message to blame Donald Trump's political opponents for its failure to answer calls.

The US is in the middle of a government shutdown, leaving many federal services without staff.

But callers to the White House comment line at the weekend were informed that Democrats were to blame.

The recorded message says calls cannot be answered because Democrats are holding government funding "hostage".

The recorded message was set up on the White House comment phone line, which accepts calls from members of the public.

"Unfortunately, we cannot answer your call today because Congressional Democrats are holding government funding - including funding for our troops and other national security priorities - hostage to an unrelated immigration debate," the recording says.

"Due to this obstruction, the government is shut down." (BBC)

First off, here is my retort: Fuck You Donald Trump. You are incompetent. You're lazy. You're unable to do anything useful because you have no useful skills. You're greedy. You're selfish. You're hateful. You're petty. You're not a "business man" like you advertised yourself to be, you clearly can't make any "deals". You're a liar. You're egotistical. You're sexist, racist and pretty much the most vile person ever to stain the carpets in the White House.

The reason the government is shutdown is because YOU ARE A FAILURE AS PRESIDENT. But you're also a failure as a man and a human being. The only person to blame for the partisan message, for the friction, the lack of action, for the brain-aching stupidity that sluices out of the White House is YOU.

Dear Donald Trump, please go away. You're ruining our nation. Kthxbai.
