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:



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

Do the right thing

This should be common knowledge by now:

But when it’s presented this way, something clicked for me and I flashed on this:

The mango-hued babyman isn’t going to do the right thing. He’s busy lining his pockets with government cash by putting his business interests above the interests of the American people. His IKEA cabinet is doing everything it can to wreck American lives. And his loyal army of empty headed pump truppets are going to support their team while the team leaders do everything they can to turn back progress that has saved and protected those who need it the most.

People overseas don’t trust this administration to do the right thing. Everyone in this country should know by now that the disaster of November 2016 is not going to lead to the right thing being done.

We’ve got to fight the powers that be.

The battle of the babymen would be bad for all of us

The orange geriatric babyman from Mar-a-Lago did this yesterday:

U.S. President Donald Trump said on Thursday a major conflict with North Korea is possible in the standoff over its nuclear and missile programs, but he would prefer a diplomatic outcome to the dispute.

“There is a chance that we could end up having a major, major conflict with North Korea. Absolutely,” Trump told Reuters in an Oval Office interview ahead of his 100th day in office on Saturday. …

The Trump administration on Wednesday declared North Korea “an urgent national security threat and top foreign policy priority.” It said it was focusing on economic and diplomatic pressure, including Chinese cooperation in containing its defiant neighbor and ally, and remained open to negotiations.

U.S. officials said military strikes remained an option but played down the prospect, though the administration has sent an aircraft carrier and a nuclear-powered submarine to the region in a show of force.

Any direct U.S. military action would run the risk of massive North Korean retaliation and huge casualties in Japan and South Korea and among U.S. forces in both countries.

In the meantime, the pudgy psycho babyman in North Korea is sending this out into the world:

On a personal note, I spend most of my time about a mile from the U.S. Capitol, so the end of this video is not anything I ever want to see.

But we’re in a world of incompetent petulant babymen who are obsessed with showing the world how big their baby penises are.

So, yes. We should be very worried.

In the meantime, one of Hookerpiss’s favorite media outlets is reporting this:

President Hookerpiss showers his followers

And the reason I post this (via CNN Money):

What Trump will do for the little guy is on everyone’s minds in Beattyville (Ky.). The town earned the unfortunate distinction of being the “poorest white town in America” from 2008 to 2012. Depending on which metric you look at, it still ranks among the most impoverished in the country. …

Today, the town is a ghost of its former self. The vast majority of Beattyville residents get some form of government aid — 57% of households receive food stamps and 58% get disability payments from Social Security.

“I hope [Trump] don’t take the benefits away, but at the same time, I think that once more jobs come in a lot of people won’t need the benefits,” says Hayes, who currently receives about $500 a month from government assistance. She’s also on Obamacare. …

But today it’s also easy to come by heroin and cocaine in Kentucky’s hills. Almost every family CNNMoney met in Beattyville had been impacted by drugs.

Puckett and her husband are currently raising a great niece and nephew because their biological parents are drug addicts. The situation is so common in Beattyville that the local elementary school runs a support group for grandparents raising grandkids.

Caudhill estimates that 40% of kids in the area don’t live with their birth parents because of drugs.

“We need help. Eastern Kentucky is beautiful, but it needs help,” says Patricia “Trish” Cole. Her son died of an overdose when he was 27. Pictures of him are all around her living room. She’s normally quick to smile, but she gets choked up when his named is mentioned. She has a tattoo on her chest that reads: “Can’t keep your arms around a memory.”

These people think the Immortan Donald is going to turn their lives around and make their concept of America great again.

But when their benefits are cut, and they have no healthcare and the jobs never come, and they sink deeper into heroin addiction, they’re going to watch all of the country’s wealth flow into the pockets of the Lügenorange and his cadre of scavenger plutocrats.

And they brought it all on themselves.
