So, Mrs. Trump the third, who we all know from the racy nekkit pics of her holding her crotch and doing the nasty on camera with another lady, has now decided that she will sue if anyone calls her a hooker. The whining has gotten incessant, now that her hubby has cheated his way into the White House. (He’s good at cheating, she probably knows that already.)
What else do you call it when you do sex for money with somebody? Oh, right, in her world, it’s called “marriage”.
This excessively moisturized slavic princess who is, by all accounts, in the U.S. illegally, needs to grow some thicker skin. That is, if she wants to be taken seriously in the political realm. Instead, she’s pissing and moaning that people are recognizing her from her pole-dancing days and treating her accordingly.
Two words of advice for dear Melania: own it. It’s YOUR past. We didn’t invite you here and we didn’t ask you to marry the Orange Shitgibbon. But, now that you’re here and now that you’ve paraded your all for the rest of us to see, you own it. Grow up.
Of course, when Putin assigned her as Donnie’s handler, she didn’t expect this level of scrutiny. So, it’s understandable that she’s a wee bit upset that her past is catching up with her.
Too bad, darling. So sad.
The U.S. is going to be led by a man who was placed in office by a foreign power. Does anybody know what the Constitution says about that? If you don’t, you should.
The news from the CIA that Russian hackers helped Donald Trump “win” the recent U.S. election should be frightening for all of us. It is, for the folks who care about our country. For the GOP, it is business as usual, anything to get elected.
We can’t help but wonder just what they’d do if a Democrat had been helped by Russian hackers. I feel quite certain there would be investigations even more onerous than the wasted time and money spent on investigating the Benghazi incident (which was caused in large part by the Congressional refusal to fund security for that embassy where four Americans were killed). But there aren’t because the GOP isn’t going to waste an opportunity to “win” (at the cost of American integrity).
This is Republicans we’re talking about, and apparently not one Republican is interested in defending the country from the fraud that has been perpetrated on the the rest of us, I guess we now know what the GOP stands for: lie, cheat, use foreign operatives to win an election, and then start to attack people’s well-being (via death threats via the TrumpNazi stormtroopers) via threats of violence and death. Given what we’ve seen happening to people who even question what Trump is up to, I’m guessing that the GOP isn’t willing to risk its respective nuts on this one. Far easier to go along, get those foreign funds in the re-election treasure chest, buy some bling for the third trophy wife, and grab as much as you can get while the getting’s good. All this while Americans are having their democracy, privacy, dignity, and future stolen.
No I’m not a left winger. I’m a center-facing American who is sick of the lies and cheating that the GOP has plunged this country into. Yes, the left has had its problems and I will write about that in another column. But in the years I’ve been watching politics, the GOP and right wing (aided by thieving religionists) have turned this country into a hateful place. According to the pious GOP, it’s okay to lie if you are a Republican. It’s okay to shoot unarmed black people, threaten violence to teenagers, grab adult human beings by the “pussy”, and then dare any of us to stop them. It’s okay to shove just ONE religion down people’s throats. It’s expected to rip off the poor, send jobs overseas, and hide assets in rich-guy havens all the while expecting the middle class to foot the bill. It’s just fine to steal the money that American workers have put into Social Security and remove any hope of medical care for millions of people. It’s okay to act like a jerk in public if you’re a Republican, and it’s okay to encourage Trump’s brown-shirted thugs to drive around harassing anyone they don’t like (or women they want to rape).
It’s the rule of Thuggery, and the GOP is in charge. The rest of us, apparently, are welcome to go fuck ourselves while Trump, his porn-star wife, and his sycophant following plunder the country. I don’t know about you, but this is NOT the way the government of my country is supposed to work.
If You’re Female, You’re a Target
A lot gets written about females playing games. Some games are a class act, even while players engage in war, etc. But others are not. And if you’re playing, or your children are playing (regardless of gender), you might want to give Castle Age a miss. And, let Facebook know you won’t be playing the game.
Facebook and Phoenix Arts make a buttload of money off of Castle Age, what with people paying for favor points and overpriced generals, etc. So, you’d think they’d want to protect their name and their income stream.
Not so much.
I had a chance to watch some friends play recently, and wow, what an eye-opener.
If you are a female player, or identify as a female player, you are open to the ugliest sexual harassment possible. Players who indulge in this harassment against other players are doing it against the Terms of Service, which prohibit sexual harassment, obscenity, etc. But, the developers do NOT seem to want to stop this. And so, players I know who log in as female are subjected to daily, and often-times daily servings of foul taunts, sexual harassment, stalking, and worse. The players who engage in this crap also appear to cheat quite a bit, and nothing gets done.
So, if you’re going to play Castle Age, be aware. It’s a hostile environment, and the developers do not actually seem to give the proverbial rat’s ass about stopping the vomitous crud that passes for “taunting” and “chat” in the game. This despite consistent complaints from many users (go read the Castle Age forums — they are rife with legitimate complaints about cheaters and harassers).
I’d play something else if I were you. Give your money and time to games that at least make an effort to make the game welcoming to all. Not just to complete losers who think it’s funny to spew filth.
Expect some Blowback
Two words: Phil Robertson.
Phil, you made a damned fool of yourself. Get real. Stop slagging other people’s human rights and dignity. Your white male privilege is showing and it ain’t pretty. You have the right to think and say whatever you want. You don’t have the right NOT to be called on it for the bullshit it is. You certainly didn’t deserve to get your job back. You may think you’ve won. I think you’ve jumped the fuckin’ shark.
That is all.
WASHINGTON, D.C. Incoming GOP lawmakers are vowing to wean all Americans off of health care in the upcoming session by voting down all facets of health care for most citizens (except themselves). In particular, they are taking aim at President Obama’s recently passed legislation that seeks to give more Americans access to quality health care. Speaking off the record, one Republican lawmaker, who proclaims himself to be proud to say “NO” to anything that doesn’t benefit his contributors, said, “We can’t be having everybody get health care. It’s too expensive and besides, it’s just wasted on most Americans anyway.”
When asked whether he was planning to take the government-provided health care available to lawmakers, the incoming Republican said, “Of course. I’m not stupid..”
After dismantling health care, the GOP plans to take on Medicare, with some hopefuls planning to completely reduce its benefits to near zero, while continuing to tax working Americans to pay for it. Following the decimation of Medicare, the GOP will go after public education and infrastructure. The goal, as one spokesman said, is to “return to America to its roots.”
When asked if that meant giving all Americans the same educational standard as the Founders, the lawmaker refused to comment.
