Most of us have jobs, things we're paid to do. When I see someone constantly on Facebook during working hours I generally think they're wasting time. It's not that I don't waste time too, I read the news headlines three four times a day. But usually only for a few minutes to see what has happened. There are people, however, who spend a good quarter to a third of their time online, chatting, posting and liking crap on their social media accounts.

Those people are NOT pulling their weight, imho, those people should genuinely get dinged on their performance because even if you're NOT spending all your time focused on what the job is paying you to do you should at least GIVE THE FUCKING APPEARANCE OF CARING.

Unlike, say, the current president...

Kellyanne Conway says the president had the right to fight back against critics, but she isn't endorsing his attack on the hosts of MSNBC's "Morning Joe."

Conway is a senior adviser to Trump. She said on ABC's "Good Morning America," ''I didn't say I endorsed his attacks; I never said that. Bottom line, I endorse his ability to connect on social media with Americans." (AP)

Ok it's one thing to "connect" to the public by providing vital information about decisions and events that effect the nation. It's completely ANOTHER thing to just constantly talk about yourself. From what I can tell Dickhead doesn't spend more than a fraction of his day on policy, running the nation, doing the job he is being paid to do. What he does spend all his limited attention and brainpower on is his image and what people are saying about him.

Dickhead doesn't get it, and his stooges and toadies aren't going to inform him otherwise. But then again, no one exists in his world EXCEPT him, so I guess that's not really a surprise.

Funny how ultra-patriotic fucks can hate on Kim Jong Whatever and Saddam Hussein and then go and elect someone from exactly the same mold. I guess it explains why Dictators just keep happening.

And you have NO idea who I'm referring to either... do you?

Congressional Republicans and Democrats are speaking as one in criticizing President Donald Trump's crude tweet about a female cable TV anchor.

House Democratic leader Nancy Pelosi told reporters Thursday that Trump's tweet "really saddens me because it is so beneath the dignity of the president of the United States to engage in such behavior."[..]

The first lady's spokeswoman, Stephanie Grisham, said Melania Trump has long said that "when her husband gets attacked, he will punch back 10 times harder."

Melania Trump has said that she hopes to use her White House position to combat cyberbullying (AP)

Presidents get insulted. That's a thing. Anyone who is a public image will have their share of haters, but as adults we learn that slinging shit isn't appropriate... even if in "self defense". Hillary was labelled with every hateful, misogynistic epithet in the book and yet the worst she came back with, after all the provocation, was "deplorable". That's presidential timber. Dickhead on the other hand has such notorious quotes as "grab them by the pussy", "blood coming out of her eyes, coming out of her wherever", and now "bleeding badly from a face-lift".

I'm sorry how is this in any way "presidential"? Well, we know the answer to that. But the clowns wanted a king, and I guess they have one.

As for Mel, she's going to have a hard time getting people to believe that her goal is to prevent cyber bullying when her husband is bully number one. Also, since she IS raising a child, she might want to explain that just "punching people back ten times harder" isn't a solution that will let you stay in school. If you don't want to spend your life in detention that is.

Guns. You have to love the amazing people who think they're amazing. Because... amazing!

Monalisa Perez, 19, was booked into county jail after shooting at Pedro Ruiz as he held a book to his chest, believing it would stop the bullet.

The couple's three-year-old child and nearly 30 onlookers watched as she fired the fatal bullet into his chest.

Ruiz's aunt said they did it to increase their social media following. (BBC)

So, Mona is pregnant with the second child, both of which had the dubious honor of being present in some form or another at their Dad's death. You have to wonder what kind of testing Pedro did, since this was ostensibly his idea to begin with. In case you're curious it was a Desert Eagle and a "hard cover encyclopedia".

I'm guessing he used a thicker letter like 'd' or 'e'. He probably would have done better just to use "a" with both of the above.

Or maybe, he shouldn't have done it at all. But then again, where's the fame in that? He sure is famous now.

After tens of votes to repeal the AHCA the GOP is in a dog-sweat to shove through a "replacement" and pat themselves on the back. You'd think, however, that maybe juuuuust maybe some of them might want to read it first. And get non-partisan opinions. And the results of analyses.

But that would be bad IF the deal itself had major flaws right?

"It's a big complicated subject, we've got a lot discussions going on, and we're still optimistic we're going to get there," McConnell told reporters after the lunch. (AP)

McConnell thought that by drafting it in secret, by not letting anyone SEE the development that they couldn't form a solid opinion when they did finally see the finished product. He desperately wanted the kudos now, and didn't care much at all about who might be effected.

But other senators, other GOP senators DID care, maybe not about people dying from lack of coverage but for their own totally orthogonal reasons.

WASHINGTON (AP) -- Millionaires would get tax cuts averaging $52,000 a year from the Senate Republicans' health bill while middle-income families would get about $260, according to a new analysis of the foundering bill.[..]

Moderate Republicans were concerned that too many people would lose health coverage under the bill while conservatives said it wouldn't do enough to reduce premiums.

So the rich donors get their kickbacks so they can keep pouring their donations into the GOP coffers. That was the main focus of what Mitchy really wanted to do. Killing the poor through lack of coverage was just an added bonus. Now that the word is out, and before the vote, before July 4th which would have seen lots of loud self-congratulations to cover the howls of dismay, it will be just a tiny bit harder for the GOP to move ahead with their "death panels" (oh wait, they don't need death panels because it's just a simple calculation - if you don't need subsidized healthcare then you win, everyone else can go suck it.)

But if the GOP can't kill the poor by yanking their access to medical care, they CAN just make sure they're exposed to more poisons in the air, water, ground and... of course, global warming.

WASHINGTON (AP) -- The Trump administration is taking steps to roll back an Obama administration policy that protected more than half the nation's streams from pollution.

The Environmental Protection Agency and the Army Corps of Engineers on Tuesday outlined a process for rescinding a 2015 regulation that defines which waterways are covered under the Clean Water Act.

Yep, death to everyone who can't afford bottled water and their own medical coverage. Just fuck 'em. It's not like this administration isn't overt in its distaste for the poor, it just wants a bigger gap between the haves and the have nots. Like a 6' gap. Straight down.

Savant + Idiot - Savant = tRump. And the worst part is that it's rubbing off on all of us.

Wayne Fields, a Washington University professor who has studied political rhetoric, said Trump appeared to be co-opting terms like collusion and obstruction as part of a larger strategy to "invalidate" some of the arguments made against him.

"You take words and you do everything you can to make them meaningless. You take any kind of precision out of public discourse so it can't be used against you," Fields said.

Peter Henning, a law professor at Wayne State University in Detroit who has written about public corruption, said Trump appeared to be taking the term "obstruction," which means impeding an investigation, and applying it to a decision by his predecessor not to pursue an investigation as vigorously as possible.

"Inaction is not an obstruction, but of course it has some potency as a political attack," Henning said. (AP)

Taking words and making them meaningless. That succinctly and precisely is what Das Dickhead is up to. Honestly I don't think it's malicious, it's really just the best he can manage. He's trying to make himself *seem* smart, but the truth is that unless it's good, bad, great, or terrible he really just doesn't understand, not that it prevents him from trying.

The evil part is all the people who THINK there's some deep meaning behind it all when it's just an incompetent person being truly himself... incompetent. Reminds me of Peter Sellers last movie, "Being There". I think a lot of tRump fans could do themselves a favor and watch it.

Chance (Peter Sellers) is a middle-aged man who lives in the townhouse of an old, wealthy man in Washington, D.C. He is simple-minded and has lived there his whole life, tending the garden. Other than gardening, his knowledge is derived entirely from what he sees on television. [..] Chance often misunderstands people and states the obvious, particularly about gardening, but his simple words are repeatedly misunderstood as profound, allegorical statements about life, business and the economy. [..] Public opinion polls start to reflect just how much his "simple brand of wisdom" resonates with the jaded American public. - Plot synopsis to 'Being There' with Peter Sellers (Wikipedia)

I'm not proud to be American these days. Everything about the US that was awesome, our tolerance, our creativity, our willingness to do good without recompense is gone. Now anyone I see sporting an american flag on their shirt or hat I automatically assume means they're full of hate; hating immigrants, hating women, hating the poor, hating anyone who isn't a white male with money.

I don't get it. All those haters came from immigrant families at one time or another, but they've conveniently forgotten that. Not only that but even those whose parents or grandparents are immigrants feel ok to attack darker skinned americans whose families heritage predates theirs by several generations.

White makes right apparently. Money is power. And people who are missing one of those two are more than happy to sell their souls and the souls of their neighbors to return to a past that never was as great as they imagined it.

Of course they have someone feeding them lies, and like hungry, baby birds they're willing to swallow any shitty tasting worm just to keep the illusion alive.

Never has there been a president -- case of FDR, he had a major Depression to handle -- who has passed more legislation and who has done more things than what we've done." (Dickhead Donald)

It's astonishing how little value is placed on facts, on truth, on the honest perception of reality. These are people who are not only willing to believe the emperor is well dressed, but that his clothes are so fine that it hides their own shit stained, ratty, torn, filthy garments.

I don't fault tRump for being who he is. I fault his "supporters" for believing something he's not, to the point where anyone NOT drinking the Jonestown Koolaid is not fit to be american.

Well I hate Koolaid. And I have no tolerance for delusional assholes who want to laud someone as inept, incapable and ignorant as the current fool who would be king. I guess that makes me unamerican.

Dickhead is only great in his mind and the tiny minds of this blind, evangelical followers. The rest of humanity is already plum tuckered out with his infantile shenanigans.

WASHINGTON (AP) -- President Donald Trump suggested he was just trying to keep fired FBI Director James Comey honest with his cryptic tweet implying there might be recordings of their private conversations.

Trump ended a month-long guessing game Thursday by tweeting that he never made and doesn't have recordings of his private conversations with Comey. In an interview that aired Friday on "Fox & Friends," Trump said: "When he found out that I, you know, that there may be tapes out there, whether it's governmental tapes or anything else, and who knows, I think his story may have changed."

If you can make it through the wandering, disabled droolings of Dickhead Donald in that quote bravo, give yourself a pat on the back. What he said, however, was "I made shit up because I could and I think it's really clever to lie about things."

It's hard to imagine less presidential material than this.

So here's the thing Dickhead, as president you're not either ALLOWED or ENTITLED to just make shit up. There are consequences to EVERYthing you say and people spend tax payer money to clean up the poo you keep flinging everything you open your filthy cakehole. In essence your stupidity is COSTING AMERICA MONEY. I mean fuck, we're already out of patience.

You know, when you're own "party" is left with the lame excuse of "well, the president is a political idiot" then there's really not much lower anyone can go.

I figure there's no way for you to embarrass yourself further. I just wish to fuck you'd stop embarrassing us.

In ended in a mistrial but Cosby is celebrating as if he was acquitted. Now he wants to do a tour basically titled "Bitches are whores".

Embattled comic Bill Cosby plans to embark on a town hall-style speaking tour to educate young people about sexual assault allegations.

His spokespeople said on Thursday that due to changing laws, more young men will face sexual assault allegations.[..]

"This is why people need to be educated on - you know, a brush on the shoulder - you know, anything at this point can be considered sexual assault and it's a good thing to be educated about the laws," said Ms Benson, who is a spokeswoman for Mr Cosby's wife, Camille.

That's right Cammie, it was JUST a brush on the shoulder that 50 women accused your husband of, not say DRUGGING them and then RAPING them while they were only semiconscious. Delusional much bitch?

It's nice to know that money can buy silence and innocence for the really wealthy. It won't buy back your reputation though. Cosby is a rapist and predator. His career is over and no amount of explaining is going to help.

Go ahead and try though. Really.

About 1,300 US children under the age of 17 die from gun-related injuries per year, a government study has found.

Researchers at the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) also found that guns seriously wounded about 5,800 children each year.

Researchers also pointed out that children were rarely injured or killed by guns in other developed countries. In fact, more than 90% of all children ages 14 and up who were killed by guns in high-income countries resided in the US (BBC)

Go on. You tell me. Why is this ok? Is your desire to own a gun more important than all these children? And if you say "It's not me, not my guns" then you're just another delusional fucker refusing to take the credit you're due.

You don't need a gun. Unless you're law enforcement, you don't NEED a gun.

And all those kids? They didn't need a bullet.

When faced with the literal facts, facts he can't control, contrive or conceal, Dickhead will do the next best thing: say as little as possible. Which leads to the next question: how is Dickhead going to "drain the swamp" when he's not even willing to talk about it?

Once more freewheeling exchanges, White House press briefings have been shrinking both in length and content as Trump's senior aides clamp down on information and contend with the president's own lack of message discipline and preference for speaking directly to his fan base.

The administration has erected other barriers to transparency as well, such as refusing to make its visitor logs public. And Trump hasn't held a full press conference since February or participated in interviews since the end of April.[..] David Boardman, chairman of the Reporters Committee for Freedom of the Press, said Trump's method of communicating via Twitter creates a compelling need "to follow up on those 140-character proclamations with questions."

He said a trend toward less transparency has rippled through all levels of government, and the approach is set at the top. (AP)

That's right, it's all about blind belief. No facts. No reason. No logic. No questions. It's about acting like a DICKtater, not a president who is open and aboveboard with the people he was ELECTED to SERVE. It's about hiding everything because he can do so and refuses to be questioned.

But those forms of communication are eroding discourse, said Kathleen Hall Jamieson, director of the Annenberg Public Policy Center at the University of Pennsylvania.

"You get assertion but no argument. You get attack but no justification," she said. "These are ideal formats for someone who does not want to be held accountable. You're being asked to accept on authority that this is all that you need to know."

And if that doesn't frighten you then you're clearly not thinking for yourself. Or your nation.

It's free speech when you say you want to shoot Hillary or kill muslims. But if you mock the president then LOOK THE FUCK OUT because it's not free speech any more. At least not since Dickhead was elected.

Several theatres in the US have received threats and complaints after a show in New York depicted the assassination of a Julius Caesar made to look like President Donald Trump.

Messages wished death upon theatre staff at unrelated establishments in an apparent mix-up.[..]

"Hope you all who did this play about Trump are the first to die when ISIS COMES TO YOU... scumbags."

Aside from wanting to offer the last person who contacted the theater troupe both a course in grammar and a blog at WoS, it's pretty clear that the Ol' Double Standard is alive and well from the conservative perspective. Liberals have long been willing to accept their position as targets for gun-toting conservative assholes who prefer to shoot first and apologize never. But with the sudden change in perspective, conservatives are in a frenzy of previously-derided political correctness. Threatening a sitting president? It was just dandy-fine for teddy nugent, but for anyone else? DEATH! MURDER! OMGOMG TEH CHILLUNS HOOMANITIES! Blah blah blah rhetoric blah. Shooting a lawmaker? Well hell, Gabby was a woman, so fuck who cares right? Shooting an IMPORTANT male lawmaker? OMGOMG EVIL LIBERALS ARE TAKING OUR GUNZZZZ!

Yeah, right, he bought them legally so FUCK YOU. It was your idea to make guns easily accessible to everyone so big fucking deal when someone gets shot right? It was second amendment expression, is all.

The right is pretty angry when the left steals pages from their play book. Sauce for the goose bitches. Sauce for the goose.

Under a lot of circumstances the back and forth would be absolutely fascinating, however not so here. At this point everyone is tired of a whiny, little, crybaby man who likes to play at being president.

une 18 (UPI) -- Jay Sekulow, an attorney for Donald Trump, on Sunday said the president is not being investigated for obstruction of justice.

"Let me be clear here," said Sekulow, a member of the president's legal team, on NBC's Meet The Press. "The president is not and has not been under investigation for obstruction."

On Friday morning, Trump posted on Twitter: "I am being investigated for firing the FBI Director by the man who told me to fire the FBI Director! Witch Hunt."

This constant begging for attention, no matter if it's good or bad, its tiresome. Like a spoiled toddler who breaks toys, demands new ones and pitches a tantrum on the floor in a shopping center to maximize embarrassment, Dickhead has ZERO interest in governing and 100% interest in himself.

That won't stop tRumpanzees and his staff from lauding him and sucking his dick in the most hitler-esque manner possible.

"On behalf of the entire senior staff around you, Mr. President, we thank you for the opportunity and the blessing that you've given us to serve your agenda and the American people." —WH Chief of Staff Reince Priebus at a cabinet meeting

Yes, you're serving the american people. Serving us cat-barf on a platter garnished with a puerile gravy of self-gratification. You can be so proud of yourself. Now just stfu, sit quietly in a corner and play with your interns mmmkay?

The delusion is strong with this one. And voters in Iowa who seem to believe he represents them.

Republican congressman Steve King has blamed President Barack Obama for fuelling political divisions that led to an attack on Republican lawmakers.

Mr Obama "focused on our differences rather than our things that unify us", the Iowa Republican said. (BBC)

Apparently Stevie isn't at all disturbed by the anti-woman, anti-muslim, anti-colored people rhetoric spewed by the current dickhead in office. No, it's Obama's fault somehow. No evidence to support that, or rationale, just slinging the shit in hopes what it will stick. Of course he's pitching to his constituents who are people who haven't had enough of his prior brain-vomit quotes...

"This whole 'old white people' business does get a little tired, Charlie. I'd ask you to go back through history and figure out where are these contributions that have been made by these other categories of people that you are talking about? Where did any other subgroup of people contribute more to civilisation?" - on MSNBC, July 2016

Stevie believes that immigrants are all illegal, worthless, drug-toting mules, that blacks are responsible for all crime against blacks and that gay marriage means you can hook up with your lawnmower (something I'd dearly like to see with Stevie and Mrs. Lawnboy.) It's hard to believe there's any reason at all for such stupidity, or any reason that the press needs to cover it. About his only claim to fame is that if it's breathtakingly stupid and most people have the common sense not to believe it, Shitstain Steve will be it's sponsor.

Bottom line, if the model you use makes a buyer feel bad or ignore your sales pitch you're DOING IT WRONG.

Young women are more likely to notice and remember average- and plus-size fashion models than thin ones, according to Florida State University researchers.

Seeing plus-size models also gives a boost to many women's mental health, the researchers found.

"We found overwhelmingly that there is a clear psychological advantage when the media show more realistic body types than the traditional thin model," study co-author Jessica Ridgway said in a university news release. She's an assistant professor in the department of retail, merchandising and product development.

It's been a man's world for so long that advertisers, fashion pushes and media has missed the obvious: if you're trying to get a woman to BUY something, you need to make her feel like she'd WANT it. Showing emaciated stick figures with the clothes, jewelry, makeup or whatever draped over their skeletal figure doesn't make a woman identify with the product. It's no surprise really, that someone who LOOKS like a pretty girl you'd see on the street, regardless of waist or wrist size, would make another woman think "huh, if she can wear that and look good, so can I".

DUH.

But it's a tRump world, with ugly, trailer-trash, meth-momma looking spokes ladies preening over surgery enhanced wives and rich twat daughters who can afford high-colonic enemas to flush the crap out of them and lipo away their flab. It's the era of the neglected, saffron-toupeed white guy, feeling empowered because you can abuse women and minorities and STILL be in charge.

Still won't sell a dress though.

Well the GOP wanted more bullets. Guess they got them. I may have to readjust my perspective, after all if EVERY woman were to carry a gun there would probably be a lot less rape and a lot less men in prison for domestic abuse.

A picture is building of the prime suspect in the shooting ambush on Republican congressman at a baseball game in Alexandria, Virginia.

James T Hodgkinson, who shot and wounded congressman Steve Scalise and injured four others, was carrying an assault rifle and pistol, according to authorities.

Five people including two police officers were taken to Washington DC-area hospitals. Hodgkinson died in the firefight with the congressional security detail. (BBC)

Now, of course, there are GOP senators stating how they'll carry a gun on their person at ALL times, even sliding into second base. But why stop there? So many shootings means that EVERYONE needs to be armed at ALL times! Men, women, children, women having children, nurses, doctors, senators, even the nice little old librarian. Because guns, guns, GUNS!

SAN FRANCISCO (AP) -- A UPS employee opened fire inside one of the company's package delivery facilities in San Francisco on Wednesday, killing three co-workers and then himself as officers closed in and workers ran frantically into the streets, police and company officials said.

NEW YORK (AP) -- Police say a man has been shot in the ankle near the Barclays Center in New York City

MEMPHIS, Tenn. (AP) -- A toddler who was shot in the head while riding in a car with her mother and brothers in Tennessee has died, police said Wednesday.

DRAPER, Utah (AP) -- Police in Utah investigated an anonymous tip about a man who wanted to kill his ex-girlfriend and himself just before he killed the woman and her son

Guns, if we can't live peacefully without them then everyone will just have to carry one all the time. From highschool football games (the ref might need one to protect himself from an angry parent) to girls scouts selling cookies (someone might try and steal them) to trips to Disneyland (there might be a terrorist hiding in the Tunnel of Love) we all need guns, all the time, every minute of the day.

And when accidents happen? Or someone murders an elementary school full of kids? Well, just chalk that up to conspiracy because they're trying to murder the second amendment!

Like anyone would ever look at Asshole Alex and think "gosh he's hot, I want to fuck him."

NEW YORK (AP) -- Megyn Kelly defended her decision to feature "Infowars" host Alex Jones on her NBC newsmagazine despite taking heat Monday from families of Sandy Hook shooting victims and others, saying it's her job to "shine a light" on newsmakers.[..]

Jones also described Kelly as not feminine, cold and robotic.

"I felt zero attraction to Megyn Kelly," he said.

Hey Fuckface. You were there for an INTERVIEW not to slobber over the reporter doing the interview. Like anyone a) cares WHAT the fuck you think and b) doesn't know that Megyn could have her choice of whomever she wanted and c) doesn't already know that trolls like you look like Warhammer Orcs for a good reason... because you're fucking TROLLS.

I mean his sons survived right? So everything's ok, right?

HOBART, Ind. (AP) -- Prosecutors have filed neglect and reckless homicide charges against the father of a 9-year-old northwestern Indiana girl shot to death when his firearm accidentally discharged [..]

The (Northwest Indiana) Times reports family members told police the father was showing a firearm to Olivia and her brothers Saturday afternoon when it discharged, striking the girl in the head.

I've got nothing. You know where I stand. And you know I'm not ignoring yet another, stupid, avoidable gun-related death.
