The American Clusterfuck

You know, I am really getting sick of a few things.

 

1: People reposting articles from the past to Facebook without any context. If you feel that the article has relevance in the now, PROVIDE SOME FUCKING CONTEXT.

2: The incessant postings of right-wing bullshit that has been proven to be lies e.g. the economy is great because of Trump. The economy was doing quite well during the Obama administration, and now it is going into the tank because Trump is getting into a pissing match by imposing tariffs on some of our largest trading partners. Ask a farmer in the midwest how well he doing because of Trump. I fucking dare you.

3: The whole pissing match with Iran. We had an agreement in place along with numerous European nations to limit Iran’s nuclear capabilities. The one thing that Trump does when he gets into office is break that agreement BECAUSE IT HAPPENED WHEN OBAMA WAS IN OFFICE. Now, we have tankers being bombed, drones being shot down, and a President taking us to the brink and then pulling back. The hawks in his administration (mainly Pompeo and Bolton) have a major hardon for starting wars in order to impose their fascist view of a new world order. And they have a perfect patsy in the form of Donald Trump. He is so enamored with himself that the only reason he does things now is to get praise from Fox News and other right-leaning news outlets. He has no interest in world peace. The only reason that he does things now is to burnish the shine on the turd that his presidency has become.

4: Claiming “immunity” or “White House Privilege” when being called to testify before Congress. The most recent example was with Kellyanne Conway being called to testify before the House Oversight Committee over her repeated violations of The Hatch Act, which she dismissed with the quote “Blah, blah blah. If you’re trying to silence me through the Hatch Act, it’s not going to work,” and the White House saying that it was a violation of her First Amendment rights. Bitch, shut that wrinkled old pie-hole of a mouth, sit the fuck down, and fucking testify. When you violate the law, you have to explain yourself.

5: 20+ FUCKING CANDIDATES FOR THE DEMOCRATIC NOMINATION FOR PRESIDENT IN 2020? Hey you assholes, lets muddy the political waters even further. Yes, Barack Obama came out of left field to win the Presidency in 2008, but all you Democratic wannabees need to sit the fuck down and let it shake out between Elizabeth Warren and Bernie Sanders. They are the only two who stand any chance of denying Trump a second term in office, and you idiots who are tossing your hats in are doing one thing, just making a big pile of fucking hats. Stay out of the big political sandbox until you have gotten a few years behind you and are able to make a real difference. Warren and Sanders have many more years of experience behind them, and are better able to deal with the shit that is going to be flung at them by the apes in the Republican zoo that Washington has become.

 

Enough of the old man ranting, I need to drop a grogan.

Alright. Anthony Bourdain killed himself. Kate Spade killed herself. Robin Williams killed himself, Kurt Cobain killed himself. Yes, it is tragic that talented people chose to take their own lives, but what about the rest of the people who choose to die at their own hands? Like the ones who are bullied in school? The transgendered who are shamed and ridiculed? The ones who are terminally ill and choose not to be a burden on their loved ones? Where is your sympathy for them? Why aren’t you there for them?

Excuse me for being a total asshole about this, but there are so many suicides here in the United States alone, and nobody gives a shit about them, but a celebrity offs themselves, and the news services are creaming themselves over it. The little people who suicide…well the only publicity they get is through social media. I would rather mourn the little people who thought that there was no one for them to help them through their problems.
