...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:

FUCK YOU UNITED!

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.

FUCK YOU UNITED!

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,

FUCK YOU UNITED!

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.

You voted for tRump, you voted for the end of friendships, the end of family differences, you voted for hate, intolerance and, most essentially and importantly, war. This is now open and angry and pits Americans against each other in a way that won't break for years, possibly generations.

Yes, it's "divided we fall" time.

WASHINGTON (AP) -- In a confrontation that could reshape the Supreme Court for generations, Republicans tore up the Senate's voting rules Thursday to allow Trump nominee Neil Gorsuch to ascend to the high court over furious Democratic objections.
Democrats denounced the GOP's use of what both sides dubbed the "nuclear option" to put Gorsuch on the court, calling it an epic power grab that would further corrode politics in Congress, the courts and the nation. Many Republicans bemoaned reaching that point, too, but they blamed Democrats for pushing them to it. [..]
But Democrats were unable to pull back from the brink, partly because they remain livid over McConnell's decision last year to block Obama's Supreme Court nominee, Judge Merrick Garland, who was denied even a hearing after the death of Justice Antonin Scalia in February 2016. Instead McConnell kept Scalia's seat open, a calculation that is now paying off for Republicans and Trump.

Yes the GOP is ready and willing to destroy whatever civility is left to have their way. These are the people ELECTED by americans who feel that "FUCK YOU" is the better response to a disagreement than compromise.

Ok, so that's how you want to play it? Fine. It's going to continue to play out that way down to the finest and smallest bonds, between relatives and friends.

You voted for hate. Don't cry to me when you get a face full of it.

Yes that's FLOCKING not fucking, get your mind out of the gutter... wait no. Don't bother because that's where this post is going.

President Donald Trump has defended embattled Fox News host Bill O'Reilly amid reports of settlements with five women who sued him for harassment.
"I think he's a person I know well - he is a good person," Mr Trump told the New York Times on Wednesday from the White House, surrounded by his aides.
"I think he shouldn't have settled; personally I think he shouldn't have settled," the president added.
Dozens of advertisers have pulled commercials from The O'Reilly Factor.
"I don't think Bill did anything wrong," Mr Trump told the New York Times, adding that "he should have taken it all the way" to court.(BBC)

Well whaddaya know, ol' Dickhead Dopestick is coming to the defense of a fucknugget like himself. After the shriveled penis-faced O'Reilly put the mack on female coworkers and wound up paying for his misogyny, Dickhead thinks that "Bill is a good man". How christian of him! Yes propositioning women you work with and taking revenge when they don't let you fuck them is totally how this president rolls, hell the conservatard fan-club of Trumpanzees didn't even bat an eye when he boasted about grabbing women by the crotch just because he could. So, all in all, no surprise that DDT would go to bat for another fucknugget like himself AND tell Bill he should have taken it to court. Actually, going to court would have been awesome, because a) Bill would have had to pay court fees on top of everything else and b) the details of his douchebaggery would have been published.

Dickhead Donald has already padded out his bank account by a few mil, just from using his own private club in Florida. This is how DDT is making america great again.

The sign-on fee doubled from $100,000 [to $200,000] shortly after Mr Trump took office, when proximity to the president of the United States was added to the list of amenities, alongside the tennis courts and spa.
"It's pay-to-play, people are paying for access to the president," said Richard Painter, former chief White House ethics lawyer under George W Bush. (BBC)

Remember how DDT used to take aim at Obama for the cost of his vacations? Now EVERY weekend Dickhead spends in Florida he's pocketing that cost, right into the tRump accounts. Like that? It's impressive that his greed is so overt, his level of leadership so low and morals not anywhere to be seen.

Yes, it's great all right. Totally fucking great.

Greed.

President Donald Trump has promised sweeping reforms to "horrendous" US banking regulations that were introduced after the financial crisis.
"We're going to do a very major haircut on Dodd-Frank," he said, referring to the Wall Street and consumer protection rules Barack Obama enacted in 2010.
Dodd-Frank aimed to prevent banks taking on too much risk and to separate their investment and commercial arms. (BBC)

DDT is intent on destroying every check and balance that resulted from a national catastrophe. Gibbering Trumanzees slobbering, shrieking, and flinging poo at everyone who points out that the "emperor" is both naked and insane. I guess the masses are asses and the founding fathers were right in debating if the average person should have the right to vote.

Well they're back again! Only this time they're part of the GOP mandate...

The White House offer would also let states seek an exemption to the law's requirement that insurers must offer coverage to people with serious diseases. Conservatives have argued that such requirements have the effect of inflating insurance costs. (BBC)

Try explaining to a cancer patient that they can't have medical insurance because it "inflates insurance costs". Go on. I double dare you. I bet you don't have the fucking balls to even try.

Death panels: because the GOP believes that serious diseases "cost too much" to treat and insurance only exists for those who can make it profitable for the industry...

Because there's just not enough evil the US can do under this administration. Hurting women ALL over the globe is part of the agenda.

he US says it is withdrawing funding for the United Nations Population Fund (UNFPA), an agency that promotes family planning in more than 150 countries.
The state department says the agency supports or participates in a programme of coercive abortion or involuntary sterilisation in China.
But the UNFPA says this is an "erroneous claim", and that its work does not break any US laws.
In total $32.5m (£26m) in funds will be withdrawn for the 2017 financial year. (BBC)

The war on women continues. Now vulnerable, impoverished women, women who are victims of war, famine and oppression can suffer because this aligns with ABSOLUTELY NOTHING AT ALL OTHER THAN A MEGALOMANIAC'S WHIMS. This organization saves lives of women around the globe and Dickhead doesn't give two fucks what happens as a result.

Yes, america the fucking stupid, stupid, selfish, ignorant, foolish, greedy, unthinking voters electing a "president" who represents the worst our nation has to offer. Did I mention how much I loathe you all? No? Well, maybe you can figure it out.
