Yep, seems about right...

Today's Lesson...

We're All Hosed...

In New Trumpanistan, reality as we know it will cease to exist.

Failure will become greatness, corruption will be diplomacy, incompetence will become leadership, democracy will become corporatism. enemies made from friends, safety is paranoia,and the world only as we see it in our own minds.

Unless we have a plan to wrest power from the powerful and change collective interests from serving our masters to ourselves, the system as we know it will never serve us again.

First we all have to care and we have to see what's being done and who's doing it.

At this point, the system is being set up to collapse upon itself. When a single party is in power, who's going to rescue it from its own folly?

Our existence as an empire is slowly coming to an end, perhaps during our own lifetimes. All empires end, so why should we be any different?

Our greatness will be the largest self-made scrapheap ever seen in human history and we'll only have ourselves to blame.


We Do Not Talk About Jeffrey

The Scumbag Elect In Chief

It's real.


Let it snow, y'all.

Trump team memo on climate change alarms Energy Department staff

By Timothy Gardner | WASHINGTON

President-elect Donald Trump's Energy Department transition team sent the agency a memo this week asking for the names of people who have worked on climate change and the professional society memberships of lab workers, alarming employees and advisors.

The memo sent to the Energy Department on Tuesday and seen by Reuters on Friday, contains 74 questions including a request for a list of all department employees and contractors who attended the annual global climate talks hosted by the United Nations within the last five years.

It asked for a list of all department employees or contractors who have attended any meetings on the social cost of carbon, a measurement that federal agencies use to weigh the costs and benefits of new energy and environment regulations. It also asked for all publications written by employees at the department's 17 national laboratories for the past three years.

"This feels like the first draft of an eventual political enemies list," said a Department of Energy employee, who asked not to be identified because he feared a reprisal by the Trump transition team.

"When Donald Trump said he wanted to drain the swamp it apparently was just to make room for witch hunts and it's starting here at the DOE and our 17 national labs," the employee said.

Trump transition team officials declined to comment on the memo, which was first reported by Bloomberg.

Republican Trump, a New York businessman and former reality TV star who has never previously held public office, said during his election campaign that climate change was a hoax perpetrated by China to damage U.S. manufacturing. He said he would rip up last year's landmark global climate deal struck in Paris that was signed by Democratic President Barack Obama.


Pending gag orders, perhaps? Trump's Administration looks to be as transparent as a concert slab.
