Here’s the PDF of the plan to re-organize the U.S. Government. It’s a lot of word salad to cover up the nastiness. The goal is to consolidate power and make it easier to cut programs they don’t like.
Trump wants to reorganize the government. Or rather Mick Mulvaney and the conservative nutters like the Kochs and Heritage Foundation do.
Step in and ignore reality for a moment and recharge. I know I’m not the only one feeling angry/ill/disgusted/stressed/powerless/horrified/defeated oh there are just so many feelings at once and they’re all bad really.
Ivanka and Tiffany look like Real Dolls. That has to be on purpose right?
For declining to defend hugely important parts of the ACA (aka Obamacare).
Since the 80s religious nutballs have been stacking the decks in local elections to pull the country to the right. That has worked far too well. Now they’re going for the brass ring to turn the US into a theocracy. I fear it will work in way too many states. And I worry that we’ll let it happen because we’re still…
All this agita over a comedy set at a crappy chicken dinner! I wonder if all the media personalities leaping to the defense of Sara Huckabee Sanders understand that their defense of her is *more* insulting than Michelle Wolf’s jokes? Let me tell you, nothing is worse than having your “friends” defend you by making it…
These fuckers. Rent, food stamps, healthcare, safe working environments, livable wages: who needs them? Why not just admit you all just want poor people to lie down and die? Shit, your buddy Mick Mulvaney just told banks to bribe him for better results at the CFPB. You’re at least as dumb as him.
Yeah yeah I know he’ll probably wind up being the nominee but still...
It’s been gale force winds and heavy rain here since Saturday night. (Still better than a blizzard for sure!)
Ask a Manager has a letter today from a woman who got written up at work for having maxi pads in a shopping bag in her car. Which was in the parking lot. Another coworker (a woman) saw them and complained.
I know Tom Cruise is Weird usually posts these but I haven’t seen one today.
The NYT published an op-ed about Billy Graham today. It’s not particularly complimentary thankfully. But what it does, whether due to editing or unconscious choice is to continue the characterization of evangelical Christianity as all Christianity. Throughout the article Graham is referred to as Christian, not…
A local radio station has a segment they call “Blown Off” where the hosts hear from a person who’s been on a date with someone that then hasn’t called them back. They chat with person, get details and then call the date and put them on the spot on live radio asking why they blew the other person off.
Katie Roiphe’s article is out in Harper’s. Why yes she IS reveling in her victimhood. Which is ironic considering that her whole thrust is that the #MeToo movement is turning women into victims with no agency. She, of course, is different. Her victimhood is earned with death threats from Twitter!
So topical, so beautiful, a perfect gif! What’s made you giggle today?
So my parent, in their infinite wisdom, discontinued their Medicare Part D drug coverage. And now of course is faced with spending $5000/year on the new drug they were just prescribed. Surprise! They’re too cheap to do that (even though they could easily afford it). The doctor gave them free samples for a month but…
Cause Fuck It Friday is too far away!
It looks like the Senate has the votes to pass the crap tax bill. Fucking corrupt motherfuckers.
First of all:
