Republican Political 10 Commandments

1. Old, treacherous white men shall make all the rules.  Other ethnic groups and women will only be allowed to observe the process.

2. Thou shalt exalt party dogma above all.  Fact-based governance will not be allowed while Russians, crackpots and conspiracy “theories” are to be welcomed and encouraged.

3. Thou shalt keep your base fearful, using deceit if deemed necessary.
4. Thou shalt loudly proclaim the Christian deity as paramount to the soul of the country while claiming to know his will.  Your real gods will be the money changers whom you must not offend with assessments or regulations.  Allow them to commoditize everything from services to trees.  Tax structures will favor the money changers.

5. Government is to be considered evil unless it serves your personal whims and those of your benefactors or the military. 

6. Thou shalt rig the judiciary to suit your benefactors/crackpots rather than the masses. 

7. Thou shalt acknowledge only two genders, and only marriages between those two genders shall be recognized. 

8. Thou shalt not recognize reproductive rights for women.

9. Thou shalt pledge fealty to the NRA by supporting unregulated gun possession and use as protected rights. Soothe the victims of gun violence with thoughts and prayers.

10. Thou shalt keep health care in the free market domain even if Illness and penury befall the masses who can no longer afford it.

White House Reached Out to SD Gov About Adding Trump to Mt Rushmore

Source: NYT

White House aides reached out to South Dakota Gov. Kristi Noem last year about the process of adding additional presidents to Mount Rushmore, the New York Times reported.


According to a 2018 interview with Noem, the two struck up a conversation about the sculpture in the Oval Office during their first meeting, where she initially thought he was joking. "I started laughing," she said. "He wasn't laughing, so he was totally serious."

"He said, 'Kristi, come on over here. Shake my hand, and so I shook his hand, and I said, 'Mr. President, you should come to South Dakota sometime. We have Mount Rushmore.' And he goes, 'Do you know it's my dream to have my face on Mount Rushmore?'"

OMFG!🤦?♂️🤦?♂️🤬🤬 Dolt45 wants his face on Mt. Rushmore. That takes some nerve and audacity for him to even think he deserves a spot up there. But it's beyond the pale for him to even initiate some kind of inquiry/action to try and do something about it. Forget the offense to the rest of us of seeing his face up there with legitimately great presidents. But how patently offensive that would be to the Lakota Sioux Tribe/Great Sioux Nation to have the mountain further defaced, with that racist bastard's likeness? Ugh.

Please someone wake me up and tell me that the last 3.5 years have all just been a nightmare...
