Flame On

Every word she writes is a lie, including “and” and “the.” (source)
 This is author Mary McCarthy speaking of playwright Lillian Hellman. Yeah, they weren't besties.

The same can be said of our current president though the quote needs to be modified and expanded.
Every word he tweets and speaks is a lie, including “and” and “the.”
Does 45 even understand that he’s lying every time he opens his mouth or is he so deep into his InfoWars/Drudge/Breitbart fake news fantasy world combined with his own batshit narcissism, that he honestly believes his own vile fictions?

Last week von Clownstick announced that he’d ordered an aircraft carrier and more into the Sea of Japan to, ya know, bluster and menace – show the other spoiled baby-man-with-nukes, Kim Jong-un, who's got the bigger dick.
"We are sending an armada, very powerful. We have submarines, very powerful. Far more powerful than the aircraft carrier.” (source)
Jesus, he speaks like a five year old. A tragically dim five year old.
The problem was that the carrier, the Carl Vinson, and the three other warships in its strike force were that very moment sailing in the opposite direction, to take part in joint exercises with the Australian Navy in the Indian Ocean, 3,500 miles southwest of the Korean Peninsula. (source)

I spent a week wondering if I’d wake up to World War III. Hell, would I wake up at all?

Party hack and fellow fibbing sack of toad feces, Mitch McConnell continues to toe the party line and support Big Daddy Squirrel Brain. Frog Face McConnell’s not up for reelection until 2020. If  he lives that long, he’ll be 79. He was born the same year as my Amazing Bob. This, THIS RIGHT HERE – that TAB is dead but this dishonest, chinless (lipless too), slavering, corporatist Republican prossy still lives – is a prime example of the unfairness of the fucking universe. May Frog Boy die alone and in great pain.

Paul Ryan, the equally lipless, dimwitted, zombie eyed granny starver and the GOP’s one claim to smart thinking (fictitious, magical, scam thinking is more like it), is up for reelection in ’18. Can we get rid of him? Vote him out?

Neither of these duplicitous grifters have done a damn thing to stop the Short-Fingered Vulgarian’s temper tantrum driven demolition derby presidency. It seems obvious to me now that Trump will not be impeached – at least not by a House and Senate run by these two cretinous, traitors to humanity.

Yep, I'm running a gallon or 12 low on hope today. This weekend's the March for Science. Maybe that'll give me a fresh flow of optimism.


  1. I've been feeling the same way, but it's going to get better. Soon.
