Final Thoughts on A Former Great Republic

By way of yet another addendum to my recent musings about the bipartisan nature of America’s rapid disintegration, I see today that the owner and editor of Alt-Right Poop (formerly Right Scoop) is getting that Trumpy tingle up his leg again, this time over straightforward evidence of the angry mob character of Trump’s supporters, as though this were a wonderful thing. In the...

Shocker: No One Cares

Trump promised to eliminate the national debt. The debt is growing faster than ever. Trump promised to build a big beautiful wall, and said Mexico would pay for it. There is virtually no new wall of any sort, none of it the type Trump promised, and Trump used a fake national emergency declaration (according to Trump’s own account) to steal American taxpayers’ money...

Meet the Leader of the Free World

Today, President Donald J. Trump sat on his toilet, which in this case is exactly the right location, and typed out the following missive to the world:
Congratulations to President Xi and the Chinese people on the 70th Anniversary of the People’s Republic of China!

Trump proves my point

In my last post, I noted that, thanks to the ascension of Donald Trump and the Trumpists, it is no longer possible to say with ease which of America’s two major parties would be more likely to instigate violent social upheaval to achieve its ends. Within twenty-four hours of that musing, Trump caused a new stir on Twitter by invoking the specter of...

Which party is going to instigate the violence?

Over at Alt-Right Poop (formerly Right Scoop), the top two headlines as I wake up on this Sunday morning, Korean Time, are “TRUMP TWEETS that impeachment Dems are ‘SAVAGES’!” and “Rashida Tlaib is trying to raise money with ‘Impeach the motherf**ker’ shirt.” Which leads me to ponder this strange question: When the election year rioting starts, which party will have instigated it? The...

“This is a system that is wrong”

Greta Thunberg has carried her message of hope and change — by which of course I mean mass starvation and totalitarian oppression — to her spiritual North American homeland, the New World’s Sweden, Canada. While there, she served as the honorary mascot — Does this girl’s father even care whether she lives or dies beyond the day he finishes cashing in on her?...

What Modern Parents Say vs. What They Mean

“Now that you are close to graduating, you have to focus on getting a safe, comfortable job as quickly as possible.” Meaning: I don’t believe you can accomplish anything really worthwhile in life, so you shouldn’t waste your time trying. “A stable career is the most important thing.” Meaning: Money is the most important thing. “Get your head out of the clouds and...

Impeachable You

The Democrats in the House of Representatives are initiating an inquiry into impeaching President Trump. In practice, this means they are promising to plan to look into whether or not it would be worthwhile to move forward with the process of preparing actual articles of impeachment against Trump upon which they might eventually vote. This is Nancy Pelosi’s too-clever-by-half way of smoothing over...

Spoiled Brat of the Year!

Teenage climate communist prop Greta Thunberg just gave a speech at the UN in which she threw a proxy temper tantrum at her parents (whom she thinly disguised as the adults of the world), spewing out her promise to hate, hate, hate them forever, and never, never, never forgive them for “stealing her childhood,” “betraying her,” and “failing her” — by making her...

NeverTrumpers for Biden, AlwaysTrumpers for Trump

The Republican tribal media and their sheep were pretending to be up in arms this past week over reports that some so-called “NeverTrumpers” were floating the idea of supporting Joe Biden, whom they perceive as the most moderate or least volatile of the Democratic presidential candidates, as a means of thwarting a second Trump term. The tribe’s leaders and followers were (of course)...
