Shut the Fuck Up Already!

January 13, 2017 @ 6:53 am By: Kvatch Category: Politics, Trump

As the inauguration approaches, I’ve been trying to put my finger on which of the many things that bother me about Trump I find most objectionable, and here it is:

No matter the circumstances—whether it’s a press conference, rally, or tweet from the crapper—no matter the subject, regardless of the audience, every time Trump opens his mouth…SOMEONE IS HARMED!

It’s simple: Our president-elect thrives on hurting people.

That time when your head literally explodes

December 13, 2016 @ 6:27 pm By: Frogette Category: Energy, Politics


President Elect Donald Trump is naming Rick Perry, yes that Rick Perry as the head of the Department of Energy. The department he planned to close down, but couldn’t name while on the campaign trail. I wonder if he will be able to find his way to his office on the first day.

Traitors for Trump

December 10, 2016 @ 12:46 pm By: Kvatch Category: Law, Politics, Trump

Republicans, Trump supporters, the RNC, and the oligarch-elect himself, all seem to be fine with the behavior of traitors…as long as their party benefits at the expense of the majority.

FBI Director James Comey needs to be investigated, prosecuted, and have his ass tossed in jail for about the next 50 years for sitting on evidence of Russian RNC hacking. This isn’t some abstract matter. Russian intelligence put its thumb on the scale of a US election and Republicans will let it slide since they benefited.

How do we define traitors again?

Trump Change

December 1, 2016 @ 5:32 pm By: Kvatch Category: Education, Law, Trump

For $24M, Emperor-elect Trump will settle two class actions lawsuits regarding how Trump University fleeced its students. For those of you keeping score that amounts to just over 1/2 of 1% of Trump’s net worth and, after the lawyers get their cut, maybe $600 per member of the class.

Crumbs from the emperor’s table.

Trump Tells 140M Americans To Pound Sand

November 18, 2016 @ 5:28 pm By: Kvatch Category: Politics, Trump

Forget the President-elect’s claim that he will represent all Americans. Like all of his other lies, it’s just bullshit posturing.

Actions speak louder than words, and Trump’s ‘Victory Tour’ of the states he carried is his way of telling 140,000,000 Americans to go fuck themselves.

Grade School to Gen Pop for Everyone!

November 11, 2016 @ 10:23 am By: Kvatch Category: Law-and-order, Racism, Satire

Forget statistics that say we’re more safe now then at any time in our country’s history! Those are a left-wing conspiracy—fiction made up by the liberal media elite. President-elect Trump is the only one who can save us from the black/latino/muslim/feminazi hordes that are coming to steal our women, take our jobs, torch our double-wides, and make us bake cakes for LGBT weddings.

And how should we deal with crime wave that threatens the very essence of our privileged lives? Well, let’s take a lesson from inner-city school systems that have successfully managed away the problem for decades. Why allow the little deviants to ever reach adulthood on the outside at all? At the first sign of an infraction just call in the police and put the little mother-fuckers on a fast track to permanent incarceration.

Gen pop for these kids!Like these little delinquents from Maple Grove High School, Minnesota. No need for counseling or for some liberal mamby-pamby solution that keeps it off their record. Just round the little fuckers up and throw them in Juvi for a few months. And then…the next time they decide to act out? Throw away the key! Lock em in Juvenile Hall until they reach the age of majority. Good luck with that Ivy League college application little con, and if you manage to to get a post-juvi job at all, it might be just enough to get you a shitty little hovel in a bad neighborhood. But you, your parents, friends, neighbors, and President Law-and-order will rest easy knowing that ‘Merica is safe.

Grade school to Gen Pop has been a successful program for dealing with inner-city kids for decades. Should we expect anything less for all our nation’s youth?

White Privilege Wins

November 9, 2016 @ 2:05 am By: Kvatch Category: History, Politics

This country cannot be saved, and is no longer worth saving.

Nothing left to do at this point but figure out how to get out before the doors are shut for good.

Stronger Together?

October 17, 2016 @ 12:56 pm By: Kvatch Category: Elections, History, Politics

This is the tagline of Hillary Clinton’s campaign, but as the nastiest presidential election in collective memories of every American alive today grinds to a close, the few of us that proudly remain on America’s left need to ask if it makes any sense to even consider common cause with our fellow citizens.

For over 30 years, since Ronald Reagan’s first inaugural, the right has been on an unrelenting campaign to turn America’s progressives and liberals into demons—and oh how they have succeeded. Even the Democrats, who might be expected to provide cover for liberals, broke with them during Bill Clinton’s campaign, and cast us off as relics impeding the party’s ability to win elections. And so, lacking any champion at the national level, we were branded as libtards, feminazis, and traitors. The blowback has even reached the center-right Democrats represented by Clinton, as unhinged racists openly talk about revolution, assassinating the former Secretary of State before she can assume office, and rounding up the leftists preparatory to stripping them of their citizenship and deporting them. (That last, by the way, is unconstitutional, but that hardly matters to your average Trump supporter who cheers their candidate’s promises to lock up his opponent till she rots.)

So here’s the thing… Evangelicals lament America’s drift toward immorality. They claim that America has abandoned them and their way of life. Southerners, 150 years after the Civil War’s end, lament the loss of separate identity and curse the nation that took them back. Citizens in the rust belt lament lost industries and the jobs that went with them. White males lament a lost patriarchy and curse the crushing political blow that they are about to receive. But in this festival of loss not one of these constituencies conceptualizes that, through each political or economic spasm, the coasts with their liberal politics, inclusive values, and vibrant multi-cultural populations have continued to keep America chugging along. These states and regions are the ones that put $2 into federal coffers while taking back $1. These states and regions are the ones that provide the innovation that brings the country back from massive financial misdeeds and might provide a way forward.

We didn’t abandon the evangelicals. They chose to abandon us, branded us as immoral “others”. We didn’t force Southerners to chose separation. They chose it for themselves. We did not take coal jobs from Appalachia, automotive jobs from Detroit, or steel jobs from the midwest, but once those jobs were gone we tried our damnedest to provide the money for training and retooling. We can’t help white males who feel threatened. Being forced to compete on equal terms with women, other races, other creeds, and other orientations is the imperative of our Constitution.

There is no longer any reason to reach out, no reason to compromise.

LET…THEM…DIE!

Clinton has it wrong. We are not stronger together.

Get Your Gun

July 11, 2016 @ 10:50 pm By: Kvatch Category: Race, Rights, Society

GunFor a white man owning a gun is a legitimate expression of his 2nd Amendment right to bear arms.

For a black man owning a gun is a death sentence meted out by a state-sanctioned assassin.

Philando Castile found this out.

When Policemen Become Assassins…

July 8, 2016 @ 4:29 pm By: Kvatch Category: Police, Protest, Texas, Violence

…the targets may just decide to fight back. As deplorable as the tragedy in Dallas is, we should have seen this coming a mile off. You can only murder under color of authority so many young black men before someone will get it into their head to take revenge.

And in the meantime sniveling conservative cowards like former Representative Joe Walsh try to turn this into a race war, while conveniently forgetting that their support for the police at the expense of everyone else rests on a firm foundation of hypocrisy. Muslims should rat out their ‘terrorist brothers and sisters’; Hispanics should turn in their undocumented friends; Blacks should snitch on drug dealing thugs, peaceful BLM protestors, and whomever else whitey is worried about today. But policemen? No. Policemen have no obligation to root out the predators in their midst.

There will be no peace–can be no peace, should be no peace–while blue-clad assassins continue to murder with impunity.
