A round up of Trumpian events ๐Ÿ–•๐ŸŠ๐Ÿคก


#1207

Oh, for fuckโ€™s sake.


#1208

Do they also get to decide when the CDC quarantines their whole state?


#1209

At what point on the spectrum of morality, I wonder, does self-enforced ignorance become deliberately evil murder?


#1210

As soon as the no-knock raids at the wrong house in search of the devil weed start back up. How many toddlers and family pets have to die this time around?


#1211

Ah but something something diffusion of responsibility, something something blind faith in moral principles something, something something coming from the right place something something. Something unintended consequences something, all for the greater good.


#1212

Even Armistead Maupin had a character (the teenage girl hired by Beauchamp to attack DeDe in Tales of the City) where โ€œpunkโ€ was shorthand for โ€œviolent sociopathโ€.


#1213

Trumpโ€™s Oklahoma campaign manager is now under investigation after being caught in a hotel room with a teenage boy. Itโ€™s an unpleasant story and only tangentially related to Trump but still worth noting as part of an ongoing pattern among the โ€œfamily valuesโ€ crowd.


#1214

Oh, but all that precious civil forfeiture lucre is totally worth it. (Didnโ€™t 45 expand civil forfeiture rules)


#1215

I donโ€™t know if I have become a conspiracy theorist or not. The news is so weird these days.


#1216

Soโ€ฆ whoโ€™s paying for that wall again?


#1217

In some of the early stuff I did on punk, I did address how the word changed over time. Itโ€™s found in Shakespeare at some point and really didnโ€™t change to the current usage of a musical subculture until Bangs and Shaw began to use it regularly in their work around 1970. It can still mean a violent sociopath, of course.


#1218

#1219

We are! Because โ€ฆ bad people will be contained. On the other side. Of our big old wall. I will be proud to have this giant wall. That keeps out bad people. There will not be any bad people inside the wall. We will be safe once we build this big wall.

Seriously??? Who thinks this???


#1220

Five year old logic, that.


#1221

He might look to see if the imaginary bugs in Trump properties had any imaginary Chinese characters on them. Just sayโ€™n.


#1222

Iโ€™m looking at the budget proposal and remembering how those assholes used to howl about Death Panels.

Fucking all of Congress is about to become one big ole Death Panel.


#1223

Yeah, where is Sarah Palin now?

โ€œThe America I know and love is not one in which my parents or my baby with Down Syndrome will have to stand in front of Obamaโ€™s โ€œdeath panelโ€ so his bureaucrats can decide, based on a subjective judgment of their โ€œlevel of productivity in society,โ€ whether they are worthy of health care. Such a system is downright evil.โ€ S. Palin

Evil you say?


#1224

This stuff is just sadistic.


#1225

Jesus H, even Dickens would look at these guys and go โ€œdamn, tone it down a little.โ€


#1226

The Meals on Wheels program is important, too, not just because it provides food, but it provides company for elderly people who do not feel safe driving.
