Where is the outrage?

The 24 / 7 all channels all the time outrage?

If Obama, or Clinton, or hell, any Democrat, would have even been late to a Veteran's Day memorial of any sort, there would be pundits screaming themselves purple in response. Fox "News" would be organizing literal lynch mobs.

But that slimy orange traitor skips the 100th anniversary of the signing of the Armistice ending World War I, at a cemetery holding the remains of American soldiers killed in one of the greatest battles on foreign soil.

Then he does the same on Veteran's Day on home ground: Arlington.

These are literally Sacred places, honoring people that have made the Supreme Sacrifice FOR THEIR COUNTRY. These are true heroes, deserving of the gratitude and honor of the country for that sacrifice. They have paid in blood, WITH THEIR LIVES, for the freedoms we ALL enjoy.

And he doesn't want to risk his hair in the rain.

And it barely gets a passing mention in the press.

If anyone still thinks there is such a thing as the "Liberal Media", all we need do is point at this.

There is an aphorism, attributed to Georges Santayana: "Those who fail to study their history are doomed to repeat it."

These places are Monuments to History: Where we go to reflect upon the sacrifices paid for the privileges we now enjoy.

And he doesn't want to risk his hair in the rain.

The foundation of any great institution is its' history, the United States Military most of all. To disparage, hell insult, that history is to demean and insult the sacrifices of one of America's greatest institutions.

And that is what he has done.

He has spit upon the graves of men and women of far greater value and honor to this country than he ever will be.

And his cultists will see nothing wrong. They will make excuses. They will rationalize his behavior. They will utter some mealy-mouthed "Talking Points" that will blame Democrats, George Soros, Antifa, or a myriad of other bogeymen to excuse this.

And it will not merit more than a passing mention, if that, on a website somewhere.

Can you imagine the outrage of Limbaugh, or Hannity, or any of the other right-wing radio pundits if President Obama had done such? My mention of literal lynch mobs is not hyperbole.

This must not continue.

We cannot wait for "someone" to "do something". WE have to do it ourselves. There are no Superheroes in Spandex and capes to come to the rescue. We have to do the work ourselves.

If you want something done, and done right, you have to do it yourself.

When is it Enough? When do we drag our sorry asses of the couch, and actually do something?

Protest, call your Congressthing, make a sign, punch a Nazi, write a letter to the Editor, but DO SOMETHING. And keep doing it.

It's important. We live in what I think is the greatest country on earth, it could be better; it needs work, and that work won't get done sitting on a couch. There's nothing that is perfect. Everything needs some work. If you don't do that work, or at least help out, how is it going to be done?

We're all in this together. Together we all can make a difference.

By ourselves, we can do some things. Together, we can accomplish wonders.

Orange Shitgibbon to skip visit to Arlington on Veterans Day?

Seeing reports that cowardly idiot is not going to attend any events today, including visiting Arlington. On Veterans Day. After a similar snub in France, how long do you think he'll have any support among the military?

This is an outright insult.

Mark Sanford primary opponent Katie Arrington in head-on automobile wreck


CHARLESTON, S.C. (AP) — A South Carolina lawmaker who defeated U.S. Rep. Mark Sanford in his re-election bid was seriously injured in a vehicle crash on Friday and will require weeks of recovery and more procedures, a spokesman said.

State Rep. Katie Arrington underwent surgery for her injuries and was recovering Saturday at a Charleston-area hospital, Arrington spokesman Michael Mule said.

Arrington and a friend were traveling southbound on U.S. Highway 17 around 9 p.m. Friday when a vehicle traveling in the wrong direction hit their vehicle, according to the Charleston County Sheriff’s Office

The driver of the other vehicle died at the scene, according to Sheriff’s Capt. Roger Antonio. Officials are awaiting autopsy results to determine the cause of death of 69-year-old Helen White of nearby Ravenel, the Charleston County Coroner’s Office said in a statement.


I sincerely hope the other driver had insurance, more than just the minimal liability levels.
I hope Arrington has sufficient Uninsured/Underinsured Motorist insurance.
I hope she has medical insurance for herself, that doesn't have monstrous deductibles and co-pays.
I hope her insurance doesn't put her through the hells of in/out-of-network physicians or facilities, delayed payments and reimbursements, limits on the time spent in hospital or physical therapy, or deny coverage for assistive devices.
That lets her get a second opinion for major procedures or diagnoses.
That doesn't have limits on the types and quantities of medications that are paid for.
That doesn't drop her for reaching a lifetime cap.
That doesn't end up bankrupting her and her family.

You know, the things that Republicans are pushing.
