The Whole World is on Fire


Here's the good news--Obamacare is working like a champ. Our working media doesn't care because it doesn't have a sexy angle to it, like Hillary Clinton actually having a working E-mail system that the GOP can't scrub clean in order manufacture more phony scandals.

I mean, it's obviously the worst thing ever:
At the first of two stops in New Hampshire yesterday, U.S. Sen. Ted Cruz told more than 100 people that the country has nearly reached the “point of no return” and “if we go four or eight more years on this path, we risk losing the greatest country in the history of the world.”
The Texas Republican, who in the past week has also spoke in Iowa and South Carolina, hinted that he could soon announce that he plans to run for president.
At Turbocam in Barrington, the high attendance of Cruz’s speech caused the turbomachinery development and manufacturing company to shift the location into a bigger room. Cruz shook hands and took photos with dozens of attendees on his way in, eventually beginning his remarks about an hour after the scheduled start time.
If he were president, he said, he would work to “repeal every word” of Obamacare and Common Core State Standards, abolish the Internal Revenue Service and adopt a flat tax simple enough “so that every American can fill out his or her taxes on a postcard.”
Here's the bad news--your WHOLE FUCKING WORLD IS ON FIRE!!! FIRE!!! FIRE!!!
“The Obama economy is a disaster, Obamacare is a trainwreck, and the Obama-Clinton foreign policy of leading from behind – the whole world is on fire,” he said.
The bit about the world being on fire was news to 3-year-old Julia Trant of Londonderry. She piped up from the front row to clarify: “The world is on fire?”
Cruz responded: “The world is on fire. Yes! Your world is on fire. But you know what? Your mommy’s here and everyone’s here to make sure the world you grow up in is better.”
I guess we're going to burn together, and at least more of us have health care. That is, until President Ted Cruz (which cannot happen because Cruz was born in Canada) fucking sets the whole fucking thing on fire like a demon. Which would be entertaining if he were a heavy metal act instead of a United States Senator.

Democrats Are Trying to Save America

Never forget that Trump is a bum. A cheating, lying, stealing bum. He's the kind of bum that gives actual bums (who are usually down on their luck and doing the best they can) a bad name. He's a bum on purpose, you see, and that's the kind of bum that the American people want to see thrown out of office. He's never going to be presidential because he's just a goddamned bum, you see.

But, sometimes, I think the media is worse:
As Washington braces for this week’s expected vote to impeach President Donald Trump, partisan battle lines hardened on Sunday, with Democrats defending impeachment even if Trump isn’t removed from office and Republicans denouncing the integrity of the constitutional process.The Democratic-controlled House planned to vote Wednesday on two articles of impeachment against the Republican president, and the decision whether to make Trump the third U.S. president in history to be impeached was expected to play out along party lines. There is some d…

Spoiler Alert

Tulsi Gabbard is going to work very, very hard to re-elect Trump:
Tulsi Gabbard has been slowly edging toward leaving the Democratic Party and, it now seems more likely than not, launching a spoiler candidacy to peel disaffected left-wing votes away from the Democrats. Her “present” vote on impeachment, followed by a disavowal of what she called the “zero-sum mind-set the two political parties have trapped America in,” sets the stage for Gabbard to play the role of 2020’s Jill Stein.Left-wing anti-anti-Trumpism played an important role in the bizarre 2016 outcome.Die-hard Bernie activists, fired up with anger at the release of DNC emails stolen by Russians that purportedly showed the party had rigged the primary, demonstrated against the party outside its convention hall and tried to drown out the speakers inside with boos. Stein attacked Hillary Clinton from the left, then audaciously staged a grift-y fundraising scheme supposedly to hold recounts in the states she had labored to flip…

Trump Will Burn it All to the Ground

It is difficult to see how the latest war in the Middle East will end. I don't have any answers, and, really, no one else does, either.

Here's what people should pay attention to--this happened just as evidence of Trump's orders to the Department of Defense landed on the front page. This happened after the major holidays and just as we are beginning the 2020 primary season in earnest on the Democratic side (the GOP has decided to prevent another Pat Buchanan moment, circa 1992, from happening).

Every life that is lost is because of Trump's decisions.

Every penny that this increases the price of gas is a tax on the poor and allows people who regularly have access to Trump to maximize their profits.

Every American traveling overseas is less safe.

Everyone who cares about peace will be shouted down and marginalized because that is the media's job.

Every attempt to hold Trump accountable will probably fail because the GOP is complicit in all of his crimes.

Everyone ch…
