Can we stop pretending that norms have not changed?

Not for the first time, I find myself shaking my head at the apparent either:

A. lapse in recollection
B. somewhat startling contemporary obliviousness

exhibited by a whole lot of people with respect to "norms" of social-sexual behavior, and especially, what those norms were back in the 60s, 70s and 80s.

Trump lays Out Terms to The GOP For Him To Withdraw

***************Flash Snark News Alert***************

New tape surfaces of call between Trump and Priebus:

"Look Rience you weaselly faret face mother fucker I already told you, I will withdraw once I receive confirmation from my friend Vlad that you have deposited $100 million into my account in Moscow. Now get on it before I grab your balls."

The True Purpose of Superdelegates or How the DNC Lies to Convince You They Know Best

This whole election cycle has convinced me that the corruption (that I always knew was there) truly runs deep. The system is rotten to the core. So I decided to look up a brief history of superdelegates.

The history is a bit involved but the basic premise is that the Democratic Party, in the wake of presidential campaign losses beginning in 1968, wanted a system that would insure that the best candidate was put forward.


I Never Realized How Crazy Pence is

So, just read the article linked below and am shocked, yes at the content but even more that there has been no mention of this on the MSM, amazing.

Here are a few gems but I recommend you read the entire article (it is not to long)

A Trump Win Would Empower The Greens? My Ass.

Someone said in my previous entry that Trump has to be elected to destroy the Democrats and empower the Green Party by 2020. Here's why that's total bullshit:

1. This was tried before with the Dems and the 50 state strategy. They ran on impeaching Bush and Cheney, Single Payer and Raising the Minimum Wage among other things. Every one of those things were immediately off the table once they were elected.

Cage Match: Hiding Hillary versus Deplorable Donny

Forget the issues, ladies and gentlemen (and children of all ages). The undisputed cage match of the year will not be brought to you by the UFC. No, it will be purveyed to us by the Presidential Debate Commission, the outfit which represents the duopoly, ignoring aspiring challengers for appearance in the arena.

Truck Billary and Fump

Lately I've been hearing that some folks are going to vote for Trump to stop Hillary. Well, not me. I refuse to play into the narrative that voting for the Alt-Right and 'mainstream' right's darling (They're just mad he's saying what they've been yelling at us in code for decades) will save the country. I'm sorry, but I won't give any quarter to any of those morons. Not in a million years.

"Floods, I'll get around to it"--Obama, "but I got 18 more holes"

Yup, our sensitive, caring, concerned president is really being proactive regarding the worst natural disaster to hit Louisiana since Katrina. Pardon my bluntness (so when am I not?) but playing golf in Martha's Vineyard with the upper crustics while the Hoi Polloi in LA are manning bucket brigades, commuting to what businesses are still open by kayak and going hungry is the most hypocritical, disgusting thing yet done by this hypocritical, disgusting President.

Anti-Capitalist Meetup: About that realignment...

I’ve heard talk that a political realignment in this country may be in the offing, result of the breakdown of the alliance between social conservatives, right-populists, and the part of big business that doesn’t much pretend to care about looking human. For a long time, that part of the business elite had little trouble wrangling the other two elements into line by hiring politicians who mixed a palatable cocktail of religion, nationalism, and economic “freedom”.

Psychopaths have this dream that they would like to govern...

When we are asked to support/vote for "the lesser of two evils", we are no longer living in a democracy, we are living in a pathocracy, a system ruled by psychopaths whose evil (murder, genocide, economic and environmental collapse) and power is limitless. Please watch the video.

Things I'm not sick of hearing about.

Been thinking, and there's been a lot of talk from certain quarters about things that are "Settled". They've been discussed, they've been kicked around enough and we need to move on.

And I was thinking, I'm not sick about hearing about these things. In fact, they aren't nearly discussed enough. I'd like a bit more discussion on these settled topics, and I'd like the candidates to talk about them.

How much will it cost the Republicans to get rid of Trump?

My guess is it will be something north of $400 million.

I made a bet with my wife a few months ago that Trump will not be the person on the ballot in November. There are all kinds of articles going around about all kinds of efforts to get him out. The final decision will be Trumps when we realizes he is going to lose and lose big "Loser". That is something that he could not stand.

Donald Trump is rallying a lynch mob. He's done it before, with the Central Park Five.

From Politico: “Trump's long dalliance with violent rhetoric — Beyond his own incendiary comments, he's done little to mute loose talk of killing Clinton and Obama”

And refrains of “hang the bitch” and “kill the bitch” have grown increasingly common at Trump rallies. [...]

Our Top Candidates for President Are Certified Unapologetic Sociopaths (And Scumbags. Now Shut the Hell Up.)

There. I said it. If there's one thing that both the presumptive queen and her living puppet have proven throughout this entire clusterfuck of an election season, it's that neither of them are fit to hold public office.

Some people are willing to hold their nose and make the choice between the slow-acting poison and the gunshot to the head, but that's one choice I refuse to make. This is a literal Hobson's Choice here.

Hillary shocked, SHOCKED that somebody would obliquely suggest Assassination

Except she did it first. And I'm willing to give the FULL context of her comment as well. If you don't want to listen to her for more than ten seconds or so, Skip to 1:50, where she gives the full frontal commentary.

This Time Lesser Evil Voting is Utter Folly

I just wanted to say that, "utter folly". It's utter folly man.

I've noticed many Bernie supporters (former?) saying they might vote for the asshole Trump primarily to stop Hillary Clinton from becoming president. That seems to be the prevailing attitude for those who are going to vote in the upcoming Presidential election, stopping "the other one" from becoming president.
