Spanky offers thoughts and prayers

Hit rewind. Press play:

A man with a vendetta against an Annapolis newspaper fired a shotgun through the newsroom’s glass doors and at its employees, killing five and injuring two others Thursday in a targeted shooting, according to police.

The attack appears to be the deadliest involving journalists in the United States in decades.

Local police said the Capital Gazette was targeted in the Maryland incident that prompted heightened security in newsrooms around the country.

A bulletin emailed to Maryland law enforcement officials identified the shooting suspect as Jarrod Ramos, 38. Police were searching an apartment in Laurel, Md., late Tuesday that is tied to Ramos.

Ramos in 2015 lost a defamation case he brought against the paper over a 2011 column he contended defamed him. The column provided an account of Ramos’s guilty plea to criminal harassment of a woman over social media.

And to accompany the generic cartoon, the generic response:

Which means wait a couple of weeks and rerun the whole thing again in a different city with a different body count.

Because Spanky and his gang and the entire GOP are NRA whores. As long as people keep electing them, nuts with guns are going to kill.

Oh, and remember the korrupt krimson klansman did this a couple of days ago:

The next crisis: Thanks GOP

Last week, Republicans weakened the Dodd-Frank law that put restrictions on certain banking activities.

Let’s remember why such a bill was necessary:

And

And:

So, Republicans are doing all they can to make sure this happens again. They know we’ll bail out the banks again.

Signs from the March for Our Lives

Hundreds of thousands of people, mostly kids, participated Saturday in the March for Our Lives. Below is the main stage after the event. It was impossible to get to it once the event began:
And here are the signs.

This was an official sign from the District of Columbia. It’s sad they had to post it, but there’s always some gun nut who thinks he has the right to terrorize people:

The following is something I’ve been saying for months:

People are sick of the “thoughts and prayers” response from politicians who prostitute themselves for the NRA …

Because people really know what the NRA stands for.

And the people at the march kept the focus on kids. Practically all of the speakers talked about how guns have affected their lives, from Parkland high school students, to kids in Washington, D.C., who have lost siblings to gun violence or who have stared down the barrel of a gun thinking it was going to be their last second alive.

There was also a reminder of when we had a compassionate, responsible, intelligent and uncorruptable leader in the White House not that long ago:

And there was this friendly reminder from a long departed neighbor:

I arrived at the march a little late and had to leave early because of the crush of the crowd, but while I was there, none of the speakers gave a roll call for the congressional whores who take NRA money in exchange for kids lives. Perhaps someone did do it, but if not, here’s a reminder:

Every politician who takes NRA money is an accomplice to murder. Every voter who selects an NRA shill is an accomplice after the fact. Remember that in November.

It gets worse every day, especially when you see his priorities

This from North Korea (via Gizmodo)

North Korea’s foreign minister Ri Yong Ho just had a rare press conference outside the United Nations in New York. And it’s not great. The diplomat declared that the US has declared war on North Korea. And he stressed that he hopes the world remembers in the future that it was the US who declared war first.

“As you already know, for the last few days, the United Nations sincerely wished that the war of words between the DPRK and the United States did not turn into real actions,” he began, according to his translator.
“However, last weekend Trump claimed that our leadership wouldn’t be around much longer. And hence, at last, he declared a war on our country,” Ri continued.

President Trump declared in a speech at the UN last week that the US stands ready to “totally destroy” the country if necessary, in response to North Korea’s persistent nuclear weapons tests and overt threats to US territory Guam. His tweets about leader Kim Jong-un, who he calls “Rocket Man,” have also worsened tensions between the US and North Korea.

“Given the fact that this comes from someone who is currently holding the seat of the United States presidency, this is clearly a declaration of war,” Ri said at today’s press conference.
“All the member states participating in the United nations and the whole world should clearly remember that it was the US who first declared war on our country. The UN charter stipulates individual member states’ rights to self defense,” said Ri.

So, given that we’re on the brink of nuclear war, what did the kopper koiffed kleptocrat talk about today?

President Trump defended his high-profile campaign against NFL players who kneel during the national anthem and insisted it hasn’t distracted him from hurricane relief efforts in Puerto Rico.

“To me, the NFL situation is a very important situation,” Trump said Tuesday at a news conference. “I have plenty of time on my hands. All I do is work.”

Oh, yeah, what has he done on Puerto Rico?

President Trump’s slow, unenthusiastic and — yes — mean response to the humanitarian crisis facing Puerto Rico in the aftermath of Hurricane Maria is astonishing. He seems oblivious to the fact that the 3.4 million people living there are Americans, in many cases more patriotic than he is.

First, let’s talk about Trump’s delayed response to the disaster. While Trump visited Texas twice within a week shortly after Hurricane hit that state, and traveled to Florida five days after Hurricane Irma, he made no immediate plans to visit Puerto Rico.

Facing a barrage of criticism in the media and tweets from — among others — former Democratic candidate Hillary Clinton for ignoring the natural disaster in Puerto Rico, the White House announced Tuesday that Trump would visit the island on Oct. 3. It will be almost two weeks after the storm.

And what the fuck does “I have plenty of time on my hands. All I do is work” even mean?

May the people who put this klown in office suffer a thousand times more than the people in Puerto Rico, who are better Americans than the pump truppets will ever be.

The korupt krackpot klutz really wants to kill us all

Look at this:

It’s not like he was caught on an open mike whispering this to a bunch of his fascist ku klux kronies. He said this in front of the world, at the United Nations General Assembly. And he didn’t say “Did I say that out loud?” when he was done.

We are screwed.

Thanks, pump truppets.
