Ice will suffice


Some say the world will end in fire,
Some say in ice.
From what I’ve tasted of desire
I hold with those who favor fire.
But if it had to perish twice,
I think I know enough of hate
To say that for destruction ice
Is also great
And would suffice.

"I'm bored with his tweets." - Starbucky

I wish Starbucky would run in the D primary and rise or fall according to his merits. I cannot support him running as an I - which I regard in this case as handing a free ticket to the KGOP republican syndicate as it continues darkside collusion with the frikking Evil Empire* of russia.

That said, Starbucky did get off a deadpan zinger last night in his 60 Minutes TV segment. The reporter asked him how he would reckon with Dirty Donny**s skanky republican Tweets. He said, approximately: "Like most Americans, I'm bored with his tweets."

republican tariff bribe to farmers less than promised

From Successful Farming: By Chuck Abbott 1/25/2019

U.S. farmers may receive noticeably less in Trump tariff payments than originally expected, a senior USDA official said on Thursday...

...An estimated two thirds of the Trump payments were made by the start of January, said Agriculture Undersecretary Bill Northey on the Adams on Agriculture program, “a little over $5 billion of the maybe $8 billion that we expect we’ll make in mitigation payments.”

The payments, officially called the Market Facilitation Program, were created by the administration to offset the impact of the trade war on U.S. agriculture.

TRANSLATION: KGOP Comrade Dirty Donny* & his republican cronies took and used our hard-earned tax dollars to bribe farmer corporations with freebie handouts to keep them in the republican herd after the republicans screwed them by starting a pointless Trade War and LOSING bigly. The repubes are gaily handing out our money to pacify the farmers, thereby continuing to treat our farmers (and us taxpayers) as Super Suckers. And of course, as the story makes clear, the farmers are not getting what they were promised by the republicans. Typical cheat job (R).

By the way: republicans need to shut up about squandering our hard-earned tax dollars on the impotent medieval wall they want to build. They promised Mexico would pay. Republicans lied about Mexico. They lied to our farmers. And they lied to us.

Sad. No glorious golf today for the republican Draft-Dodger-in-Chief.

But on the bright side, as long as the ignoble and compromised republican Draft Dodger remains locked into his ill-advised, anti-American, red-faced Pouty Pout Strike, republicans won't be able to squander any more MILLIONS of our hard-earned tax dollars on his glorious, golden, gourmet, luxurious, primo golf wank-offs with his billionaire republican buddies.

It's not that republicans give a shit about squandering our tax money on themselves, but the optics would be bad. Can't have that.

Diversion. The stupid wall is a republican diversion from republican treason.

This wall-shutdown clusterfuck is at heart a huge, stinking Dirty Donny* tantrum to shift the focus from his outright republican lies, crimes, and treason. That is all.
