And where is that band who so vauntingly swore,
That the havoc of war and the battle’s confusion
A home and a Country should leave us no more?
Their blood has wash’d out their foul footstep’s pollution.
No refuge could save the hireling and slave
From the terror of flight or the gloom of the grave,
And the star-spangled banner in triumph doth wave
O’er the land of the free and the home of the brave.
Colin Kaepernick is right to protest this…as should we all.
Trump declares January 20th, the day of his inauguration:
National Day of Patriotic Devotion
My God! What a load of horseshit!
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.
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?
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.
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.
