It’s February 11th and it’s 88 degrees F where I am in Oklahoma. In other parts of OK it’s 99.4.
It sucks living in an apt complex that controls heat/AC because we can’t turn on the AC as some are doing. Ugh.
At 52 I realize that every once in awhile Mother Nature gets a kink in her ass and for kicks screws with us.
This is one of those times. What.a.bitch.
I recall summers when it was 115 – 120 degrees.. in the shade. Oklahoma is weird when it comes to the weather. Hopefully we won’t be cowering in the bathroom a lot this spring. We deserve a quiet spring after frying in the February heat!
Trump won’t pursue case against Clinton, Conway says
Told you so. You bought his bullshit, and still buy his bullshit, but you’ll slowly find out he has no integrity.
He will tell you one thing and then do the opposite.
He’s a typical lying politician.
Seriously you people need to quit worshiping at politicians feet.
They will always disappoint you.
From The Politistick:
Will Donald Trump Lock Hillary Up? Kellyanne Conway Reveals the Answer [VIDEO]
The quote over there is incredible. Help Hillary heal?!?!?
If my Husband had done what she did he’d have been fired and thrown in jail!
This from a man who called himself a law and order candidate? He’s going to let her off?
He lied to his supporters?
Why am I not surprised.
No not really funny. But I did chuckle when I saw it.
The alt right sub reddit has changed their scrolling banner.
Before it included photos of Mussolini and Hitler.
They attempted to replace the photos with images that are sorta patriotic.
Looks like they might not be happy with the attention they’re getting.
His posse is all pissed because anyone dared to suggest that Bannon is a fanboy of the alt right.
Cry me a river, build me a bridge and get the fuck over it.
Trump campaign manager Kellyanne Conway told reporters that she was “personally offended” by suggestions that Bannon represented the alt-right, even though he has proudly said that his website does. Conway said she would not “manage a campaign where that would be one of the going philosophies.”
All you had to do was to look at Trumps twitter account to see the shit he re-tweeted from the knuckle dragging members of the alt right. Her boss repeatedly re-tweeted alt right tweets. Even after being called out on it. Trump savaged Carson, Cruz, and a judge who just happened to be mexican. He calls for deportation. Building a wall. His stance on immigration.
Then he places Bannon in this position.
Is it that fucking difficult to see why the alt right would be so on board the Trump Train?
They see Trump as a fellow traveler.
They also see him as someone who can be manipulated. I think it’s hilarious that this crowd of dumbasses told us to not dismiss the Trump “movement” that it wasn’t as small as we claimed. I hate to tell them this but the alt right and their fellow travelers aren’t a small movement either. They’re world wide. They want power and they’ll use people to get what they want.
Bannon doesn’t have to be a full blown alt right/nazi/kkk member people. The fact that he sees nothing wrong in reaching out to those people is a serious problem. He’s wrong to do it. They shouldn’t be given ANY credibility by anyone especially Trump and his crowd because by doing so they’re affirming what people who are not Republicans (left/democrats) have thought for a long time! Is that so fucking hard to understand? If you’re not what they claim you are to give any sign of accepting racists support should be something you run away from. Don’t embrace them!
From the Hill:
Carson not interested in serving in Trump administration
You can’t make this shit up.
“Dr. Carson feels he has no government experience, he’s never run a federal agency. The last thing he would want to do was take a position that could cripple the presidency.”
Sir, please do the country a favor and never run for President or any public office again in your lifetime. You have beclowned yourself repeatedly for Trump during this fiasco of a campaign. A man who compared you to a child molester.
And a man who has the exact level of government experience you have. Yet you felt he was capable of running the country.
I would have voted for you at one time.
Now you disgust me.
You should be ashamed of yourself.
Because I never supported him. IMO, he wasn’t a reputable candidate. Unlike some who now are “giving him the benefit of the doubt” and defending him after being strident in their opposition to his candidacy I’m going to stick to what I believed before election day. You see I didn’t think he was qualified to be President on Nov 7th. He didn’t magically become qualified on Nov 9th.
He’s not my candidate. I didn’t vote for him. I also didn’t vote for Hillary. So I feel that I can say things like this…
To Republicans/the Right:
Donald Trump is not Jesus Christ. Quit acting as though he is perfect. I’ve seen some batshit crazy shit said by his supporters online. He can do no wrong to his believers. They accept his actions even though in the past they’ve been opposed to those same actions by others. It’s insane. He’s a deeply flawed human being who believes he’s perfect and “great”. That is dangerous. His ego is immense. He’s also easily manipulated which is why his choice of Steve Bannon is dangerous. You see I’ve been to the hell holes of the Alt-Right online. I’ve seen what they say and it’s not good. They see Trump as someone they can manipulate. To them he’s a useful idiot. They’ll use him and they have no problem saying it. They want to spread their vile gospel around the world. And they’re doing it. Trump during the campaign was re-tweeting tweets from the alt right. If he didn’t want to be connected to them he should never have been giving them credibility. But then again he also believes Alex Jones is a reputable person. Donald Trump is a fucking train wreck about to happen and I refuse to defend him in any way.
To Democrats/the Left:
I won’t tell you to grow up but I will tell you that you don’t play a game and then try and change the rules. Your candidate lost not because of her gender but because of who she was and what she’s done in the past. Quit screaming and crying. You will not always win and you may think your side is superior but that doesn’t make it the truth. You are guilty of judging people by their “group” and not as individuals. You are bigots whether you will admit it or not. The reason the American people fell for Trump’s neo-populism is because for years they’ve been accused of being something that most of them are not. Your holier than thou attitude is why you’re now facing four years of a Trump presidency.
Trump believes he’s perfect and you believe the same about yourselves. You are Trump. You have no one to blame for your loss but yourselves. You need to spend your time in the wilderness in introspection and not spend it doing what you’re doing at the moment. But I don’t think you’ll do the mature thing. You never have.
To both sides:
IMO, you’re all fucking screaming squirrels. You should be fucking ashamed of what you’ve done to our country and you should be ashamed of what you’ve become.
I thank God that I didn’t fall for your bullshit.
It’s time for you to have a conversation with your child.
You should be honest and tell them that you lied to them when they were growing up.
They aren’t special. Yes, they’re special TO YOU because you’re their parents. Everyone else? Eh, not so much.
You might also might explain to them that there will be times they will lose elections. Politics sucks.
They need to understand that not everyone in the country agrees with them. That does not mean that they’re right and the other person is wrong. It means they disagree.
Your child is not allowed, out of disappointment or anger, to call the opposition nazis, racists, sexists, etc. That does not change minds.. it hardens positions.
They need to clearly understand that gays, african americans, and women voted for Trump whether they like it or not.
They need to understand the world doesn’t revolve around their pet causes.
Having seen some of the signs at the protests, if my child held up a sign that was so horribly misspelled, I would demand that they return home for some remedial education.
You need to explain to little Hubert or Petunia that disappointment is a part of life. They will not always win and they for damned sure won’t always get a trophy. We’re talking about the real world and not the educational bubble. There won’t be any “safe spaces” and “being triggered” won’t work when they have a job. What it will get them is fired. Better to be honest with them now than to listen to them snivel after finding out they’re not a “special little snowflake”.
Stunned By Trump, The New York Times Finds Time For Some Soul-Searching
Seems some in the media are beginning to open their eyes. Some won’t but at least a few are being honest.
That’s the fantasy, the idea that if we mock them enough, call them racist enough, they’ll eventually shut up and get in line. It’s similar to how media Twitter works, a system where people who dissent from the proper framing of a story are attacked by mobs of smugly incredulous pundits. Journalists exist primarily in a world where people can get shouted down and disappear, which informs our attitudes toward all disagreement.
Commentary: The unbearable smugness of the press
This has been going on for years. It’s not just Trump supporters they treat this way. It’s Republicans and Conservatives too. They marginalize us, these people who espouse fairness and justice, and it took the election for some to finally realize what they have wrought.
Hopefully others will open their eyes as well.
It was a vote against one particular female.
It had nothing to do with her genitalia.
It was her history/baggage that destroyed her.
After eight years of Obama a trip to the grocery store for basic groceries is mindblowing.
$200.00 or over. It’s easy to be a politician and not realize how everyday people are struggling from day to day.
When people are trying to feed their families they don’t give a rat’s ass about sexism, racism, and all of the other causes Democrats hold dear.
The Democrats lost not because people supported Trump.
This was about economic survival to everyday people. They couldn’t continue watching Democrats throw money hand after fist down a hole. They also knew that Hillary would be a continuation of that behavior.
That’s why they voted for Trump.
