I will start by admitting that I am sorry I am talking about Twitler World. Throughout the campaign, I said, repeatedly – so many times that I’m sure people rolled their eyes and shook their heads – that Trump was not the problem. And that I believed it was unwise to keep talking as though he was. Republican voters are the biggest problem we have. Without them, none of those irresponsible, toxic Republicans in office would be there. Without those politicians (including Trump) those voters would still be the same ignorant, dangerous people they are. Democrats need to learn to focus on a core issue like this, and stop chasing every distraction and personality they toss in our way.
The way I see it, Trump is a placeholder and puppet. We are spinning wheels again, talking only about how horrid he is and how we will be better off if he is impeached, or chokes on a hairball, or pisses off one of his 2nd Amendment supporters. Then we get Pence, and they still have ALL THE POWER and not a single scruple. And we have already let the world see that nearly half of the voters voted for Trump and the majority of voters who did not didn’t do anything to stop him from taking office. Don’t even bother trying to tell me that wasn’t possible because I am only insulted when people do that. If only the extra three million who voted for Hillary had taken to the streets between fake Election Day and Electoral College election day, it might have made a difference. If every single one of the people who voted for her had taken to the streets, not gone to work, not spent a penny, I am certain it would have made a difference. But, for some weird reason, people don’t want to act until it’s too late. (I really am going to come back and talk about people who love to protest and think getting fake or forced arrested makes them special even though the never accomplish anything. One day soon.)
Well, it’s too late. I already started my Twitler Diary and will keep it up until I have to change it my Theo Pence Rants (short for theocracy, what did you think). Trump was busy signing shit today. We pay him a lot to sign pages that Republicans have had ready for whichever puppet made it in. Gotta go off topic here and ask if everyone was as surprised as I was that Rubio didn’t get it? They seem to go with the handsome one, since they stopped pretending that brains matter. I was shocked because I can’t imagine a single person on earth thinking Trump is handsome, or that he would be fun to have a beer with. I’m sure I’m wrong, though. Please, just humor me and, anywhere you see me type Trump, read it as REPUBLICAN POLITICIANS, empowered by Republican and emoprog voters. That’s too much to type every time.
Here’s what happened so far today. Seriously, be afraid. Be very afraid. Look for a new country to live in because this is not the one you signed up for anymore. Not even close.
*Trump (don’t forget, REPUBLICAN POLITICIANS, empowered by Republican and emoprog voters) were only kidding when they pretended they were all about transparency. They only said that that stuff so you’d make Hillary release every recipe, wedding detail, and joke she heard. Suckers! None of it was even worth reading. And now you get this: Employees at several federal agencies are being told they are no longer allowed to post public information to the public. Bans on communications outside their departments are being instituted at the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS), the U.S. Dept. of Agriculture (USDA), the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and even the National Park Service are being reported. Get that? Public information to the public? If you are one of the few people sitting there with a confused look on your face, that is a BFD. Seriously. Read all about it here.
*I almost wrote this headline off as hyperbole and scrolled past without clicking. I’m not a fan of Huffington Post, especially blogs about things I’m not seeing anywhere else. Glad I didn’t, though. I haven’t found anything more yet (it was a busy day and I got a bit dizzy just watching my country fall apart before my eyes) but think this is another BFD if it turns out to be real. It doesn’t have Trump’s slimy fingerprints on it but the buck stops with him (hahaha) and this comes from his REPUBLICAN POLITICIANS, empowered by Republican and emoprog voters so he owns it. And, from what I hear, it might be the only thing he does own outright. Headline: The Most Dangerous Bill You’ve Never Heard Of Just Passed The House. Read it. Let me know if you heard about it before it passed the House. The first one-sentence paragraph (Gather friends might giggle with me here) supports my second paragraph. If we hadn’t been distracted by Trump (okay, he stands alone on tweets) and nonsense, might we have known about this? I really don’t know.
Last, week, under the cover of a media bliss-out except among Koch funded right-wing channels, the House of Representatives passed a bill which would effectively repeal future standard setting under every important environmental, public health, consumer protection, labor standards, occupational safety and civil rights law on the books.
*Sanders and his should be ecstatic to know that they helped put Trump in office so he could deliver KEYSTONE XL AND DAKOTA ACCESS oil pipelines. That’ll teach the DNC! What a hell of a protest vote that was. By Executive Order (fucking hypocrites). Who’s keeping count? Has he passed President Obama’s eight-year in four days? Feels like he must be getting close.
*Trump decided to keep Comey on as FBI Director. Pay to play? Earned his place in the most corrupt administration ever? Test?
* Trump Signs Anti-Abortion Executive Order Surrounded By Men (another HuffPo because I like the headline and picture). Because women don’t want to be in a room with these men? (I know I saw a better article on this topic and will try to backtrack and share it here, too.)
This is either funny or frightening. I’m asking you to tell me. I wanted to think it was satire and funny. But I can find no documentation that this site is satirical. Anybody know for sure? Trump Aides Keep Leaking Embarrassing Stories About How He Can’t Handle Embarrassment
Oh, and China isn’t happy with Trump. They are not being silent anymore. Drawing red lines.
On a personal note, I do want to leave this country.
