Snowflakes

Democratic voters are depressed, demoralized, and tuning out — and there's no use in denying it. Amanda Marcotte In a couple of weeks, the world will come together in Glasgow, Scotland, in what is yet another attempt for worldwide action to attempt to prevent planetwide devastation trajectory we have yet to slow...

I tried sitting through FOX News’ commentary/critique yesterday, following Joe Biden’s report on the status of the nation, and in particular the American troop withdrawal from Afghanistan. After a few minutes, and when one of the conservative panelists had the temerity and amnesia to call Joe Biden a liar, I...

I’ve never seen so many snowflakes in my life, and I grew up in Wisconsin. It’s still mind-boggling that so many Trumpaloompas thought they could storm the U.S. Capitol, openly engage in a violent insurrection, and then grab some Arby’s on the way home and chill with a box of Fiddle...

Now everybody knows there’s exceptions to this rule, Now don’t be getting’ mad, when we playin’; it’s cool Rapper and actor Queen Latifah, wrote those words in 1993. Her words seem most appropriate for Republicans who ruled the Senate with an iron fist in a barbed wire glove. The denial...

These entitiled babies whining over extra security and metal detectors need to pack their bags and go home and hide under their beds with their guns.  They are ridiculous.   We need security in the People’s house and should have had such for a long time.   Who are these entitled people...

Throughout the Democratic primaries, the dueling campaigns, and finally the day of November 3rd, I feared the United States would let me down. I have blown the horn of warning to anyone who would listen that this election was not a referendum on Donald Trump it was a referendum on...

Do you really believe the little turtle and pig Barr and loonie Graham and others will go so far as to try and disenfranchise the first Black /Asian woman VP in American history?   Do you think after countries including France, and Israel and even Saudia Arabia have offered congratulations will be...

Wherein Kelly Loeffler, an actual U.S. senator in this actual, current timeline (no kidding), compares herself to Atilla the Hun and appears to endorse the extrajudicial killings of journalists (but in a “humorous” way, snowflakes! Back the eff off!) … x x YouTube Video Again, this is a pro-Kelly Loeffler ad.  It...

I know many are hearing the same thing in other states but here in Florida, it is ridiculous and with DeSantis heading the ignorance,  the careful are being harrassed. x Beautiful state. I enjoyed myself in Florida last week. Hardly any masks worn either. People respect one another’s personal space...

Why do I get the feeling that coronavirus is a sentient hive-mind collective that’s infecting our leaders’ brains and forcing them to make stupid, pro-coronavirus decisions? How else can one interpret U.S. policy with respect to this pandemic? In an interview with Fox News’ Tucker Carlson last night, full-time Christian...

Trump is not exactly an author of any Emancipation Proclamations. Trump implies that he will retaliate against private social media but if he chooses anything remotely constitutional, he may actually have to address issues of fact weighed against his usual lies. But he does need diversions from the over 100,000 dead,...

It remains bizarre to me that Donald Trump is the president of the United States. If I’d woken up yesterday from a 20-year coma to discover Carrot Top or Fred “Rerun” Berry was president, I would have been marginally less surprised. But the day-to-day reality of Trump’s presidency is even more shocking...

Really, snowflakes? Really? First people march on state capitols because — well, not because children are being tossed in cages or the president thinks he’s above the law. No, they’ve gone ape shit because Perkins is closed, and where the fuck else can you get a muffin that big? And now? Yes,...

Now that it is almost a certainty that Senator Bernie Sanders will never become the President of the United States—although my timing is off; is it time to take a sober look at where he wanted to take the country?  The rank and file Republicans get hung up on labels...

He’s a 73-year-old man who sounds like a pair of mating Yukon moose being sucked into a jet engine, but he has great hearing everyone. Everyone says so. Many, many people. And so he’s certain that David Holmes’ testimony this morning, in which the diplomat claimed he overheard Trump goose-honking over...

Hey you communists, libtards, snowflakes and now included outside the democratic party..The NEVER trumpers./s..OTHERWISE KNOWN AS HUMAN SCUM.  We need to unify regardless what they do or call us.  We can get mad, too.  We can do it by visiting our local candidates and Donate, GOTV, and talk how the...

I’m a white guy. Have been all my life. Grew up in Wisconsin. I can honestly say that, other than a single incident in Spain when I overheard a Spanish guy say “Gringo” in my general direction (and with mild contempt), I’ve never felt unfairly singled out for being white. Then again, Spanish...

You know, one snowflake is just a snowflake. Ten snowflakes is a flurry, and one hundred snowflakes is a blizzard. But when it comes to Trump, and his collusion and obstruction of justice problems, it’s starting to look like his GOP lackeys are staring into potential whiteout conditions. I can’t...

Snowflakes melt in the rain, apparently. Don’t misinterpret this, haters. It’s not that he doesn’t know how to use an umbrella (which he doesn’t, apparently), or even that his bone spurs were acting up due to low barometric pressure. It’s that if he can’t arrive in his helicopter, he’s not...

Q: How many licks does it take to get to the middle of a Tootsie-Pop? No, not that question, I was just jerkin’ your chain. But there is a very serious question in politics, one that has been brewing, in fact becoming more prevalent as time has gone on. And that question is, “How do...

Well we’ll see how the Intellectual Dark Web handles this (spoiler alert, they’re going to ignore it). A Duke VP walks into a coffee shop that Duke has on contract. They were playing a rap song that the VP did not approve of. Let’s be clear (because it is important) —...
