The Red, and White, and the Blue'll Come Through

Congress may try to fake some respectability by blocking one of Trump's cabinet picks

If he picks Palin for Dept of Vets Affairs or Sheriff Uncle Ruckus for Homeland Security, those would be the most likely stances.

If those are the picks and they both get through, not only will Congress have lost all credibility (including the fake kind), but those departments will be scandalized for as long as Trump's in office.

My bet is that Congress will be too spineless to block either of them. Which means that the game will be on.

I used to think that what's wrong with America could be fixed by what's right with America

My faith is faltering now.

We're about to enter some really harmful times as a nation and we only have ourselves to blame.

The saddest part is that, by looking at the popular vote, most of us knew better but were unable to stop it from happening.

We're now about to fall hard because we've all never realized what our true potential is. False narratives abound and will lead to harsh times at the expense of the many, in order to benefit the few.

After we fall, perhaps we will find a way to pick ourselves up. But that will require some faith. I just don't see it happening anytime soon.

Trump Effect: Latino man punched from behind This is for Donald Trump

NOVEMBER 30, 2016 BY EGBERTO WILLIES

Trump surrogates want Americans to believe their eyes and ears are lying to them. I’ve been documenting the Trump Effect for a while now. A DailyKos reader alerted me to this incident along with the actual police report. It only got coverage in a small Gainesville, Florida news outlet, Gainsville.com.

We must inform America about all of these incidents that have the one common thread, the vile hate cauterized by the Donald Trump campaign, the Trump Effect. Of course, Donald Trump’s appointment of a white supremacist does little to assuage his vapid followers and to quell the fear of all ‘the others’ he spent months vilifying.

The police report describes the entire event. It is sad but given Trump rallies and his proclivity to incite violence; we expected it. VIC is the victim, Pablo J Echevarria. DEF is the defendant

Get in, let's go, there's no time to explain!

Meanwhile, in Michigan...

Wingers are insane

I just went five minutes glossing over the latest RWNJ anti-Clinton conspiracy theory, which sounds like a jumbled collection of 4chan memes on acid.

Gawd help these fools.

The mere fact that the conspiracy is completely baseless and that no one will ever go to jail over theses fantasies, it'll do nothing except drive them further up the wall.

There's no redeeming these morons whatsoever.

2 Black guys walk into store asking if they sold sliced cheese, workers run and hide and call cops

‘All I asked for was sliced cheese’: Richmond roommates bewildered after store employees hide, call the police

RICHMOND, Va. (WRIC) — What began as a spontaneous trip to the store ended up being one of the most bizarre experiences of Ricky Berry’s life. He and his roommate went to purchase a grocery item and ended up having the police called on them.

Berry and his roomate told 8News they walked into the CVS in Carytown and asked an employee if they sold sliced cheese. The worker kindly replied that they did not.

A few minutes later, the employee — all of the store employees, in fact — were nowhere to be found. Berry and his roommate, Philip Blackwell, said they were in the store with another customer for more than 30 minutes alone before an officer with the Richmond Police Department showed up.

“We looked around for probably 30, 45 minutes and we couldn’t find anybody,” Blackwell said.

As for the third customer who was as confused as the two roommates, Berry said, “he was in the store before we were actually. He had a bad tooth, all he wanted was some Orajel. That’s all he needed.”
