State of Emergency in Charlottesville. State of Emergency in America

The rally is just one example of the hate loosed upon our country. This rally did not happen in a vacuum, a one off event. I blame tRump 100%. We need to cut off the head to kill the snake. Lay him low and send these troglodytes scurrying back to the caves they crawled out from.

What other countries can tRump poke his stick at?

We've had Yemen, Afghanistan, Syria. Those have seen military action. He has threatened Iran, NK, now Venezuala. I know I'm forgetting one or two. That is an average of roughly one country per month. We need to come up with 42 more countries before his term is over. Let's help him out and make a list of countries and reasons to provoke them.

I'll go first: I suggest the Indonesian controlled Kalimantan portion of Borneo because headhunters are very unchristian and therefore antithetical to our western democracy.

Approval Ratings Through the Roof!

Hispanics love him. Union people fight for his attention. 45%, biggliest numbers ever. Those people at the Washington Examiner need to have their heads examined.


New Tweet: Ivanka leading delegation to India

Women's entrepreneurship?


Isn't that just lovely? Failing Ivanka brand is failing globally. Sad! Pathetic!

Perfect Name for Donnie. "Straw Boss"

Collins Dictionary: https://www.collinsdictionary.com/us/dictionary/english/straw-boss
a person having subordinate authority, as a foreman's assistant
a supervisor who has little or no authority to support his orders
US informal
someone who works alongside other workers but who also acts in a supervisory role; assistant foreman


The way I learned it, the straw boss is someone who supervises the work without doing any work himself. He sticks a piece of straw between his teeth, bulges his chest out, harumphs a lot, and micro manages. But boy oh boy, those two or three people under his supervision HAVE to work!


Any One Up For Elephant Poop Coffee?

For your entertainment...

Ten years in the making, BLACK IVORY COFFEE is created through a process whereby coffee beans are naturally refined by Thai elephants in the remote rural village of Ban Taklang, Surin, Thailand.

It begins with selecting the best 100% Thai Arabica beans that have been picked from an altitude as high as 1500 meters. Once deposited by the elephants, the individual beans are hand-picked by the elephant caregivers and then the beans are washed, sun-dried and roasted. Approximately 33 kilograms of coffee cherries are required to produce just one kilogram of BLACK IVORY COFFEE. The result is Black Ivory Coffee is the world's rarest and most expensive coffee.

2.2 lb package of coffee for only $1800

I thought civet cat shit coffee was expensive, but it's mere covfefe in comparison to this!

Remember the good old days when the MOAB was enough

to impress upon us the ponderous bulk of the prezidential war phallus? Who did we drop that on again? I had to look it up because I wasn't sure if it was Afghanistan or Syria. Remember the good old days of bombing airstrips in Syria? We really showed Assad who is boss, didn't we? Why, he couldn't fly airplanes out of that strip for at least a couple hours. Wasn't there some operation in Yemen as well? Oh yeah, there were two of those. Two scoops of Yemen, folks. Good times indeed. Next up, North Korea looks to be lots of fun if you're a warmongering idiot.

If the last 200 days were a film, it would be panned...hard. There is no plot. There is no character motivation. The action is just a montage of blowing stuff up and tweeting nonsense about it afterward. There is no context. Are we supposed to ask "Why?" Evidently not. But if we do ask, the answer has to be something like, "'Cause, bad people...over there...BOOM!". Just grunt your approval and enjoy the CGI effects. That's what the trumpsters are doing. That's what the GOP is doing.

This right here is who we are supposed to be, patriotic spectators to the greatest fireworks show mankind will ever witness

Now He's a Proponent of the UN?

Or is it just China and (especially) Russia?


I thought he didn't like the UN.

As a Professor of English, I Have to Say...

Screw this "English only" crap that conservatives have been pushing for years and that Miller brought up today. Language is intrinsically tied to culture. "English only" is a means of forcing foreigners to adopt American culture at the same time that it teaches them their own culture is worthless (has no place in our country). America does not have an official language for a reason. If we adopt English only, we might as well force young girls to play with Barbie and young boys to play with GI Joe because they represent the roles our culture finds "acceptable". "Behave like the majority!" To hell with that shit! Conservatives are NOT the majority, and they do not get to control culture. The day I stop hearing different languages spoken in this country is the day I deem America officially dead.

2016 Democratic Party Platform re: Women's Reproductive Rights

Securing Reproductive Health, Rights, and Justice
Democrats are committed to protecting and advancing reproductive health, rights, and justice. We believe unequivocally, like the majority of Americans, that every woman should have access to quality reproductive health care services, including safe and legal abortion—regardless of where she lives, how much money she makes, or how she is insured. We believe that reproductive health is core to women’s, men’s, and young people’s health and wellbeing. We will continue to stand up to Republican efforts to defund Planned Parenthood health centers, which provide critical health services to millions of people. We will continue to oppose—and seek to overturn—federal and state laws and policies that impede a woman’s access to abortion, including by repealing the Hyde Amendment. We condemn and will combat any acts of violence, harassment, and intimidation of reproductive health providers, patients, and staff. We will defend the ACA, which extends affordable preventive health care to women, including no- cost contraception, and prohibits discrimination in health care based on gender.

We will address the discrimination and barriers that inhibit meaningful access to reproductive health care services, including those based on gender, sexuality, race, income, disability, and other factors. We recognize that quality, affordable comprehensive health care, evidence-based sex education and a full range of family planning services help reduce the number of unintended pregnancies and thereby also reduce the need for abortions.

And we strongly and unequivocally support a woman’s decision to have a child, including by ensuring a safe and healthy pregnancy and childbirth, and by providing services during
pregnancy and after the birth of a child, including adoption and social support services, as well as protections for women against pregnancy discrimination. We are committed to creating a society where children are safe and can thrive physically, emotionally, educationally, and spiritually. We recognize and support the importance of civil structures that are essential to creating this for every child.
