Outrage: Vatican Won’t Bless Same-sex Unions, Calling Homosexuality a ‘Sin’ and a ‘Choice’

Pope Francis has been viewed with cautious optimism by LGBTQ groups because of his history of gay-friendly remarks like his statement published in 2020, that homosexuals are “part of the family” and that same-sex couples need a “civil union law.”

It’s unwise to bet on the Roman Catholic Church or practically any other organized religion to treat lesbians and gays as spiritual beings intrinsically worthy of all the blessings of God.

The hopes that after centuries of oppression, persecution and demonization of gays and lesbians that the Catholic Church would finally recognize, sanction and bless same-sex marriage were dashed by the Church’s statement, approved by Pope Francis, that the Church cannot bless same-sex marriages because it can’t bless sin.

The Catholic Church takes false pride in the pontiff’s statement that same-sex couples deserve a “civil union law”, but the LGBTQ community isn’t second-class in a legal or spiritual sense, and same-sex marriages deserve to be accepted by the legal and spiritual community everywhere in the world.

The Catholic Church is a misogynist, homophobic and patriarchal organization that condones pedophilia and protects pedophile priests, and enlightened and spiritual people shouldn’t be looking to them for what is blessed or not blessed by the Almighty.

Donald Trump Buddha Statue a Hit in China

Donald Trump had a hawkish, hostile and confrontational policy toward China, and his anti-China rhetoric, such as calling the coronavirus the Chinese flu, was outright racist.

Therefore, it’s not surprising that China’s commercial websites offer a variety of anti-Trump products, including toilet paper rolls with Trump’s mug printed on them, a toilet brush shaped like Trump’s wispy urine-colored hair, and T-shirts printed with satirical cartoons of him.

But the latest trend in Trump merchandising in China is a surprise: a statue of Trump, sitting cross-legged with his eyes closed in a Zen position, draped in a robe.

Trump Buddha? Trump isn’t known for his calm and peaceful demeanor. When Trump is criticized, I doubt he assumes a Zen pose and meditates and contemplates how he should respond to his critics.

Chinese aren’t as stereotypically inscrutable as they are portrayed in the West. The Trump Buddha statue is described as “Dong (know it all) Buddha of the West”, it’s a mock tribute to the Man Baby we in America hate so much.

Joe Biden’s First Prime-Time Speech a Resounding Success

The $1.9 trillion American Rescue Plan is the most far-reaching piece of legislation since FDR’s New Deal, allow me to channel Joe Biden by declaring that it’s a Big Fucking Deal.

President Joe Biden would have been excused had he devoted his first prime-time speech as president to tout what may very well turn out to be the most significant accomplishment of his administration.

But only a few hours after signing the mammoth piece of legislation into law, Biden focused the lion’s share of his address to the nation talking about his plan to contain and control the coronavirus pandemic. The empath-in-chief spent only the last few minutes talking up the American Rescue Plan.

What a contrast between Biden and his predecessor, if Trump signed a two trillion-dollar stimulus bill into law, he would have spoken for well over an hour touting his accomplishment as the most consequential legislation in the history of America, and he would have demanded that his victory be celebrated with a place in Mt. Rushmore.

The selling of his Rescue Plan will begin in a couple of days, Biden and his aides will hit the road to explain the benefits to the American public. But Biden’s first prime-time speech was all about empathy and unity, and he struck all the right chords. Finally, after four years we heard a real presidential speech.

Lindsey Graham Sees “Magic” in the Steaming Pile of Manure Known as Donald Trump

Senator Lindsey Graham’s virulent 2015 attacks on presidential candidate Trump transformed into adulation once the reality show buffoon accomplished the seemingly impossible and won the election. The vehement critic transformed into a subservient fluffer, because the senator from North Carolina cares more about political power than he does about morality and democracy.  A profile in courage, he’s not.

Throughout Trump’s chaotic four-year term, Graham made excuses and justifications for the president’s myriad acts of racism, incompetence and corruption.

After Trump’s incitement led to the storming of the Capitol, Graham finally broke with Trump. “Count me out. Enough is enough”, he thundered on the Senate floor.

A few days later Graham was verbally attacked at an airport by a handful of MAGA faithful for his betrayal of Graham, and the cowardly senator returned to the fold, and once again defended Trump.

Graham further prostrated himself before his orange deity this weekend when he declared there was some “magic” in the disgraced twice-impeached former president.

“There’s something about Trump. There’s a dark side and there’s some magic there. What I’m trying to do is harness the magic,” Graham blathered.

There is no magic in Trump, there never was. There’s only a bottomless pit of cruelty, racism, pettiness, misogyny, homophobia, incompetence, corruption …

Only a spiritually blind and politically pragmatic fool like Graham will see any magic in the steaming pile of dog shit known as Donald Trump.

RNC Says it Has the Right to Use Trump’s Name and Likeness for Fundraising

Donald Trump sent out cease-and-desist letters to the three largest fundraising entities for the Republican Party, the RNC, NRCC and NRSC, for using his name and likeness on fundraising emails and merchandise.

What a sad state of affairs that the Trump name which is synonymous with racism, fascism, misogyny, and homophobia is effective in eliciting funds for the GOP.

It’s disturbing that his likeness (orange complexion, mouth that resembles a sphincter and raccoon eyes) is an effective advertising image.

This is a devastating indictment on the Republicans who respond in a positive way to the name and image of the disgraced and diminished twice-impeached former president.

Trump is apoplectic that his name is being used by Republican fundraising organization to help Republicans who voted to impeach him. Trump cares more about exacting revenge on the Republicans who voted to impeach him, than he does about helping the GOP win elections.

The RNC flat-out rejected Trump’s cease-and-desist demand, arguing that it “has every right to public figures as it engages in core, First Amendment-protected political speech.”

The RNC had no choice but to reject Trump’s demand, the GOP is the party of Trump, and there is no way that they can effectively raise funds without invoking the name of their messiah.

Why can’t the Republicans see that their embrace of the narcissistic, racist, and downright evil Trump will doom them to a minor party status.

We Need Herd Immunity Against the Coronavirus and White Evangelicals

There will be more spikes in coronavirus cases, hospitalizations, and deaths, but we shouldn’t despair because we have President Joe Biden’s promise that there will be enough vaccine available for all adults by the end of May.

Of course, having enough vaccine for every adult isn’t synonymous with every adult getting a shot in the arm, there are logistical problems that need to be overcome before we reach herd immunity.

The availability of vaccine is going up and at the same time vaccine hesitancy is going down. According to a Pew Research Center survey, 69 percent of Americans have indicated that they’ve either already taken the vaccine or will definitely or probably take it in the future. That’s up from 60 percent last November and significantly up for the low of 51 percent in September 2020.

But it’s not all good news on the vaccine front, vaccine hesitancy is still epidemic in white evangelical communities, and it could imperil our goal of herd immunity.

According to the Pew survey white evangelicals are the least likely to say they should consider the health effects on their community when deciding to be vaccinated. White evangelicals have the mindset of Jesus is my vaccine and the Holy Ghost and not masks will protect us, and we will continue to hold superspreader events in our churches and if the heathen get infected it’s their fault for not trusting Jesus.

Evangelicals main imperative is to evangelize, that is to demonstrate their care and compassion for their communities by reaching out to them with the Gospel of Jesus Christ. But their message that Jesus saves will fall on deaf ears when their refusal to wear masks, social distance and be vaccinated reveals a total disregard for the health and welfare of their neighbors. Instead of spreading the love of Christ white evangelicals are spreading false conspiracy theories and the coronavirus. White evangelicals are a more deadly disease than the coronavirus, and I’m hoping that they will be wiped out along with the coronavirus.

Republicans Obsessed With Stoking the Culture Wars

Republican leaders stoke the culture wars as a means of energizing their base and building a campaign war chest. The Republican faithful are primed to storm the Capitol to stop the evil Democrats from banishing The Muppets, Dr. Seuss, Goya, Mr. Potato Head and the My Pillow guy.

If you listen exclusively to right wing media cable news outlets like Fox News and Newsmax you’d think that democracy was in an existential threat of being undermined by the raging culture wars. Republicans are terrified that America will fall to communism if Liberals succeed in cancelling Roseanne Barr, Jon Voight, Mr. Potato Head, the My Pillow fraudster and Donald Trump.

Conservative pundits, preachers and politicians have their panties in a twist over what they describe as out of control PC culture.

The mainstream media may have light-hearted segments on Dr. Seuss and Mr. Potato Head, but it’s not culture wars 24/7.

President Joe Biden and his administration aren’t preoccupied with the culture wars.

“I don’t think there is any danger in ignoring a debate on Mr. Potato Head and Dr. Seuss,” said John Anzalone, a Biden adviser and campaign pollster.

Biden has more important things on his plate: passing the massive COVID-19 relief package and bringing the pandemic under control.

If only Republican congressional leaders would stop playing with Mr. Potato Head, put down their Dr Seuss books and help Democrats in fighting the pandemic, ending systemic racism, building our infrastructure, and protecting voting rights.

Tiger Woods and Donald Trump: Two Poisonous Peas in a Pod

Tiger Woods career is over after an automobile crash that resulted in open fractures to the upper and lower sections of his right leg along with significant trauma to his ankle.

Woods’ indomitable spirit and tremendous work ethic are responsible for 82 PGA tour victories and 15 Major championships, but there’s no way that a 45-year-old golfer who’s had five back surgeries and multiple knee surgeries can return to the PGA tour. The celebrated golfer will be lucky if he can return to Augusta in five years to play a ceremonial round of golf.

An adoring press has universally characterized Tiger’s latest vehicular escapade as an “accident.” If a boulder rolls down a hill and crushes your car that’s an accident. If a pothole causes your vehicle to roll over that’s an accident. But when you speed on a road notorious for its hairpin turns, and you total your automobile, that’s not an accident. It’s negligence, recklessness, and stupidity.

Disgraced and diminished former President Donald Trump wished his occasional golf partner Tiger Woods a speedy recovery, predicting, “he will be back.”

In May 2019, just weeks after winning his fifth Master’s title, Trump awarded Woods the Presidential Medal of Freedom.

In a recent interview Trump said:

“When Tiger is in contention, which is often, the ratings are double and triple. It’s very few people that can cause that kind of phenomena.”

Trump admires Tiger’s celebrity and penchant for getting high ratings whenever he’s in a golf tournament, and Tiger admires Trump’s power, influence, and wealth. Two peas in a pod.

There won’t be another miraculous Tiger comeback. His debilitating injury has ended his hall of fame career. There won’t be a Trump comeback, his incapacitating moral failings and fascist tendencies have ended his political career.

The Trump Republican Party is Destined for Defeat

Donald Trump suffered a popular vote and electoral landslide defeat to Joe Biden, and subsequently he was impeached for the second time for inciting an insurrection against his own government.

Trump is 74, morbidly obese and odds are that he will suffer a heart attack, or a stroke caused by either his violent temper or unhealthy diet before he can run for president again in 2024.

After having lost the House, the Senate, and the presidency, you’d think Republican congressional leaders who avoid him like the plague, after all there’s nothing that politicians hate more than losers.

But the former commander-in-chief holds court at Mar-a-Lago as if he was a king, basking in the presence of sycophants who paid hundreds of thousands for membership fees in his country club.

Republican leaders make pilgrimages to Mar-a-Lago to kiss his fat ass and pledge undying loyalty.

And millions of his white evangelical supporters still prostate themselves before him and treat him as the Second Coming of Jesus Christ.

The Republican party has lost its integrity, relevance, and legitimacy by clinging so pathetically to such an amoral loser, and the white evangelical movement has lost its morality, relevance, and spiritual vitality by worshiping a false messiah.

I predict that Biden or Harris will soundly beat the corrupt Republican presidential nominee in 2024, makes no difference if its Trump or one of his clones.

Jill and Joe Biden Have a Phone-free Dinner Date Every Night at the White House

Joe Biden is the President of the United States and Leader of the Free World, and as you can imagine his daily schedule is chock full of meetings with cabinet members, congressional leaders, foreign heads of states, and White House aides.

But Joe realizes that his relationship with his spouse, Dr Jill Biden, is more important than cultivating close ties with political allies and befriending foreign leaders.

Therefore, the commander-in-chief ends every day by having dinner with his wife. In an interview with Kelly Clarkson, Dr. Biden said that they have dinner together every night, with the phones turned off.

Jill Biden is almost as busy as her husband, besides her duties and responsibilities as first lady she also has a full-time job as a college English professor. If this uber-busy couple makes time to have a quiet dinner together every day, there is no reason why we can’t have a daily meal with our spouse or significant other.

Enjoy a meal with your loved one every day and remember three’s a crowd. That means leaving your smart phone in your purse or in a drawer.

Model the excellent behavior of the first couple.

Trump Golden Calf Statue on Sale for $1000,000 at CPAC

Trumpalooza, also known as CPAC ends Sunday with a rousing speech by the star of the extravaganza, Donald Trump. It’s the annual conference during which conservatives come together to network, discuss policies, showcase presidential hopefuls, and chart the course for the future of the conservative movement. This year’s iteration of the conference is dedicated solely to the glorification of the false messiah, Donald Trump.

No festival would be complete without overpriced merchandise, and CPAC is no different. All things Trump are available at CPAC including hand-crafted luxury Trump hammocks, 2024 Trump bumper stickers, impeachment champ T-Shirts and “don’t me I voted for Trump” buttons. I bet the average Trump evangelical cultist would rather browse in the gift shops at CPAC featuring Trump paraphernalia than walk the streets of gold in heaven with Jesus Christ.

But what do you get the Trump devotee who already has all the aforementioned Trump items including the hammock?

The bizarre gold statue of the disgraced former president, that has been the runaway hit of the conference, is on sale for a cool $1000,000. The golden idol weighs 200 pounds, almost as much as the blimp it represents.

Are you a white evangelical POS who idolizes Trump? Do you think your messiah’s farts smell like heavenly incense? Do you worship the ground he walks on? Then don’t leave CPAC with a lousy T-Shirt! Demonstrate you reverence for your Dear Leader by purchasing the Trump Golden Calf idol! Take out a second mortgage if that’s the only way you can afford the abomination.

Trump Golden Calf Statue Worshiped at CPAC

Republican politicians, conservative media personalities and activists are gathering in Florida for the annual Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC).

Former President Donald Trump will be the headliner of the show in Orlando, delivering a Sunday afternoon speech, in which he is expected to tease a 2024 presidential run and continue to preach the Big Lie that the 2020 presidential election was stolen from him.

All the preliminary speakers are expected to minor on conservative policy positions and to major on the magnificence of their false messiah. CPAC should be renamed TPAC, considering that this political conference isn’t intended to advance the conservative agenda but glorify Donald Trump.

Trump acolytes constructed a golden statue of Trump and wheeled it out to cheers from conference attendees. Reminiscent of the Biblical story of the Golden Calf, is it not? Even people who are biblically illiterate are familiar with the story of the Golden Calf. The Israelites, newly freed from Egyptian slavery, angry and impatient that Moses is taking to long talking with Jehovah on Mount Sinai melt down their golden jewelry to construct a golden calf to worship.

The party of Abraham Lincoln and Ronald Reagan is now the party of Trump, and the Republican platform has been replaced by the Trump cult of personality.

White evangelicals who make up the largest part of Trump’s base abandoned their commitment to the Biblical principles of honesty, integrity, propriety, and morality and embraced a devil whose speech, behavior and actions are antithetical to the Gospel of Jesus Christ.

Jehovah punished the faithless Israelites by making them wander for 40 years in the wilderness, and the political gods will punish the Republicans’ embrace of Trump by making them wander in the political wilderness of defeat and irrelevance for generations.

ForeverSpin Spinning Top a Perfect Toy for a Child of Any Age

I’m a baby boomer and every day my aching body reminds me that my best days are behind me. In my old age I have my dreams and memories of my halcyon days to sustain me.

Some of us old-timers spend thousands on buying and restoring the muscle cars of our youth to invigorate us in our waning years. I owned a 66 Mustang in the prime of my youth, if that automobile has been restored and is still on the road its odometer matches the numbers of miles I have traveled on my life’s journey.

I can’t afford to purchase a vintage automobile or a mechanical pinball machine to remind me of my wayward youth but buying the toys of my childhood are within my financial means.

On of my favorite childhood toys was a spinning top, in an innocent age when video games and the Internet existed only in science fiction books and magazines, simple toys like a spinning top or a Frisbee kept us entertained for hours.

I will soon be receiving a ForeverSpin spinning top in the mail and I am absolutely ecstatic. There is nothing more therapeutic, soothing, and relaxing than watching a top spin. A top spins away the years and takes me back to the carefree days of my youth.

Description of ForeverSpin spinning tops from ForeverSpin.Com:

“ForeverSpin spinning tops are made out of nothing but the purest and highest-quality metals. This metal is formed into solid billets and moved to a state-of-the-art facility where each top is CNC-machined on a lathe in one operation to achieve an incredible degree of precision. After years of research, hundreds of prototypes, and relentless dedication to mastering the creation of spinning tops, we continue the pursuit of perfection.”

Thanks, ForeverSpin!

People Who Wear Glasses Are Three Times Less Likely to Catch COVID-19

I’ve worn glasses since elementary school and if I had a dime for every time, I was called four-eyes I would be a millionaire. Wearing glasses has been a handicap all my life, men seldom make passes at girls who wear glasses and women give men who wear glasses a wide berth. I’m now a senior citizen and almost all my contemporaries wear corrective lenses, and still, nobody makes a pass at me. Hmm, maybe it wasn’t the glasses.

In the age of the global coronavirus pandemic there’s finally a silver lining for those of us who wear spectacles. According to a non-peer reviewed study published on the website medRxiv, people who wear glasses could be up to three times less likely to be infected by the coronavirus.

The virus can enter the body by people touching their eyes, nose, or mouth after coming into contact with it.

However, the study suggests people who wear glasses rub their eyes less and are therefore at less risk of contracting COVID-19.

These days I’m glad women give this four-eyed old geezer a wide berth, I don’t want to catch the virus from them. My glasses make me feel special knowing that I am three times less likely to catch COVID-19 than folks who don’t wear them.

Rush Limbaugh is Dead and I’m Unapologetically Dancing on His Grave

“Don’t speak ill of the dead” is a maxim that’s universally recognized as a basic rule of conduct. Even when a tyrant or dictator dies, we’re expected to maintain a modicum of decorum and refrain from dancing on the dearly departed’s grave.

Well, I call bullshit on that tired old proverb, that ain’t how we roll in the 21st century. When Trump bites the bullet, I’m going to dance the Macarena on his grave.

I’m glad to see that many in the media share my mindset, when the quintessential shock jock Rush Limbaugh finally succumbed to terminal cancer the Huffington Post’s headline screamed: “BIGOT, MISOGYNIST, HOMOPHOBE, CRANK: RUSH LIMBAUGH DEAD.” Twitter was even less restrained, they metaphorically danced and pissed on his grave.

It is a mortal sin to mourn the passing of a millionaire who reeked of white privilege and who was contemptuous of religious and racial minorities, and the poor and disenfranchised. I don’t care what deity you worship, I’m sure He will give you a dispensation to mark the death of Limbaugh by criticizing the vile creature and everything he represented.

For decades Limbaugh viciously mocked gay AIDS victims, feminists, immigrants and just about everyone else who wasn’t a white Christian conservative. He dedicated the last days of his life undermining democracy by ardently promoting the false conspiracy theory that Joe Biden stole the 2020 election from Donald Trump.

As a poor progressive Hispanic, I represent the person that Limbaugh attacked mercilessly for decades, and upon his death all I can say is: Fuck you Limbaugh, I hope you rot in hell.

Outrage: Newsmax Anchor Greg Kelly Disses Joe Biden’s Dog Champ

Newsmax is such an ultra-conservative cable news outlet that it makes Fox News seem like the Daily Kos, and the reactionary anchors never miss an opportunity to diss Biden.

Newsmax anchor Greg Kelly ridiculed the appearance of President Joe Biden’s dog Champ on his program.

“Did you see the dog?” Kelly asked, referring to Champ. “Doesn’t he look a little, uh, a little rough? I love dogs, but this dog needs a bath and a comb and all kinds of love and care. I’ve never seen a dog in the White House like this.”

Kelly then compared Champ to Buddy, former President Clinton’s Labrador retriever, and Millie, former President George H.W. Bush’s English springer spaniel.

“I remember Buddy. I remember Millie. I remember lots of dogs but not a dog who seems — I don’t know. I don’t know how much love and care he is getting,” Kelly said.

I love dogs and I also remember Buddy and Millie, but I don’t remember any pooches in the Trump White House. There’s a million and one reasons to hate Trump: his racism, misogyny, fascism, incompetence, pettiness … But the fact that he doesn’t like pets means that he is completely beyond redemption.

Instead of commenting on the pathology of a person who doesn’t like pets, Kelly mocks the appearance of a beautiful 12-year-old senior rescue dog. The Bidens love their dogs, it’s not uncommon to see them walking their beautiful pets on the White House grounds.

If Newsmax’s CEO had a shred of integrity Kelly would be in the doghouse for libeling Champ, and by extension his owners.

It’s patently obvious that the only dog Kelly likes is the filthy mongrel Donald Trump.

Melania Has No Love for Her Orange Valentine

Melania Trump, the most famous trophy wife in American political history, may no longer see any financial benefit to staying married to her epic failure of a businessman husband who has loans close to half a billion dollars due in the next couple of years. I’m betting that she will soon go from the White House to Mar-a-Lago to her own New York penthouse.

It’s noteworthy that Melania posted two Valentine’s Day messages over the weekend, but neither mentioned her orange valentine, disgraced President Donald Trump.

The former first lady used both Twitter posts to highlight past visits to children in hospitals, including the Children’s Inn, “a place for seriously ill children, young adults, and their families seeking their last best hope for a cure.” A noble sentiment, but Valentine’s isn’t about sick children, world peace or finding a cure for cancer, it’s all about gushing over how much you love your significant partner.

Witness President Joe Biden’s mushy tweet to his beloved wife, Jill:  a photo of the couple embracing with the cation: The love of my life and the life of my love. Happy Valentine’s Day, Jilly. Dr. Biden for her part erected giant hearts on the White House lawn expressing her love for her Valentine.

The electorate kicked Trump to the curb, he lost the popular vote by seven million votes, and the electoral college vote to Biden 306 to 232. Soon he will lose his gold-digger wife; I wouldn’t be surprised if Melania sent a mushy Valentine’s Day card to a bachelor billionaire.

The PDA’s Between Joe Biden and Dr. Jill Biden are Sweet and Heartwarming!

Donald and Melania Trump were infamous for their PDA’s (Public Displays of Animosity: the countless times Melania swatted away her husband’s disgusting tiny hands, the frozen stares between the couple, the several times Trump failed to cover Melania with his umbrella …

You don’t have to be a political scientist or a marriage counselor to discern that the Trump’s marriage isn’t a romantic fairy tale but a marriage of convenience. Sparks will rarely fly between a trophy wife and her doddering old husband.

Joe and Jill Biden are infamous for their PDA’s (Public Displays of Affection). Since Inauguration Day, the first couple hasn’t been shy about expressing the love they have for each other.

Joe Biden has been rightly criticized for being too handsy with the spouses and female children of politicians, but at least he’s also very affectionate with his wife of 43 years.

Whether it’s a tender kiss before boarding Marine One or holding hands as they walk their dogs, the love and affection between the Bidens is an expression of their sincere love and it’s a wonder to behold.

The PDA’s between President Biden and Dr. Biden aren’t ostentatious or gratuitous, but heartwarming. They don’t make us cringe, instead they make us smile at delightful display of an elderly couple still in love with each other.

I wish the Bidens a happy Valentine’s Day.

Jill Biden Decorates White House Lawn With Giant Hearts for Valentine’s Day

First lady Dr. Jill Biden decorated the North Lawn of the White House for Valentine’s Day with candy-heart sentiments as a message of hope and healing for Americans.

This simple gesture is a soothing balm for a country recuperating from the four years of Trump administration fuckery.

The Bidens and their two German shepherds, Champ and Major went for an unscheduled stroll to view Dr. Biden’s handiwork, with a pool of reporters and a C-SPAN crew in tow.

Dr. Jill was sensibly dressed for the frigid weather in a long raspberry coat and black boots, and Joe was wearing a black leather jacket and faded jeans. A casually dressed couple, wearing face masks, walking their dogs is the shot of normal behavior that we so desperately need in these troubled times. The fact that this normal couple happens to be the First Couple gives us hope that we may just be able to return to normalcy after four years of chaos.

This heartwarming scene could never have occurred during the Trump administration, the disgraced president didn’t have any pets in the White House, and I doubt he kept any jeans in his closets.

In an interaction with the press the Bidens debated with each other over who loved each other the most. Can you imagine if the Trumps argued about who loved each other the most, the press would break out in laughter.

I’m going to have a terrific Valentine’s Day and a peaceful next four years in the knowledge that Joe and Jill Biden, and Champ and Major are in the White House.

Joe Biden is a Work Horse

“This decrepit old grifter works maybe five hours a day. We traded in a work horse, for someone that belonged out to pasture or sent to a glue factory a long time ago. Nothing says we threw in the towel better than this nauseating image, ‘the commander-in-chief’ can’t even stay awake.”

This is a description of an image that purports to be President Joe Biden asleep at his desk in the Oval Office, it was posted on Facebook and other social media platforms.

Here is a link to the doctored image:

https://archive.is/9WVsM

The photoshopped image was flagged as part of Facebook’s efforts to combat false news and misinformation on its News Feed. This image illustrates just how much work Facebook still needs to do to cleanse its platform from fake news, fake photos, and fake conspiracy theories.

Joe Biden has been working tirelessly since he assumed power to clean up the horseshit left behind by his lazy predecessor, and it would be understandable if he did take a nap in the Oval Office.

The description that accompanies the digitally manipulated image perfectly describes not Joe Biden, but Donald Trump. The disgraced president is a decrepit old grifter who worked maybe five hours a day on his scams when he wasn’t enjoying his executive time.

Joe Biden is the work horse and Trump is a one-trick pony who excels only in grifting. Biden’s work schedule is available online, and it chronicles how Biden is working day and night for the American people:

https://factba.se/biden/calendar

Speaking of nauseating images there are hundreds of nauseating photos of the morbidly obese Trump golfing when he should have been in the Oval Office managing the coronavirus pandemic and dealing with the economic collapse.

Let me end my essay by once again reminding my readers not to rely on social media for news and current events. Stick to reliable and legitimate news sources like CNN, the New York Times, and the Wall Street Journal.

Clueless Arizona State Senator Wants to Name Highway After Donald Trump

Republican state Senator Wendy Rogers wants to name a major state highway in Arizona after former president Donald Trump.

It takes a lot of chutzpah to seek to name a highway after a disgraced twice impeached president. But at least she doesn’t want to name a school after the functionally-illiterate buffoon or a government building after the insurrectionist-in-chief.

But even naming a highway after Trump makes no sense, after all this is the president who seven times during his administration declared an infrastructure week, only to see those plans not come to fruition.

Rogers would be on safer ground naming an outhouse or a dumpster after Trump, that would stand a better chance of becoming law.

Trump was rejected by Arizona voters, and if the measure was put on the ballot, I’m persuaded it would fail to pass.

The bill has been assigned to the Senate Transportation Committee, and hopefully it won’t receive a hearing.

The Saga of the Gorilla Glue Girl Captivates the World

“A Louisiana woman has sought medical treatment after mistakenly using Gorilla Glue spray adhesive in place of actual hair spray.

Tessica Brown’s plight went viral earlier in February after she revealed that her hair had been stuck in the same style for a month since she substituted her usual Got2b Glued spray with the industrial-strength glue when she ran out.

‘My hair, it don’t move. You hear what I’m telling you? It don’t move,’ she said in the original video posted to TikTok.”

CNN

The Gorilla Glue Girl (GGG) joins the Balloon Boy (This incident occurred in 2009 when parents released a balloon shaped to resemble a flying saucer and falsely claimed that their six-year-old son was trapped inside it) in the pantheon of infamous Internet legends.

A six-year-old child can’t be held responsible for the antics of his publicity obsessed parents, however at 40 the GGG is a grown ass woman who is responsible for making herself the laughingstock of the world by posting videos on TickTok chronicling her strange saga.

When the GGG posted her original video on TikTok everybody on social media, even Black Twitter, mercilessly ridiculed her. But when it became clear that she has most likely suffered irreparable harm to her hair and her scalp the tide turned and now most people are expressing sympathy and concern for her self-inflicted predicament.

I’m still in the ridicule the foolish woman mode and will probably never come around to expressing any sincere empathy. I’m sorry but unless you have the mental acuity of a wilted head of cabbage there’s no excuse for using an industrial-strength adhesive because you’re too lazy to go to the store and buy hair spray.

Lessons I hope the GGG has learned:

Always read the label of any product that you consume or apply to any part of your body.

Don’t feel obligated to videos online of every stupid thing you do.

Accept yourself the way you are. Don’t go to extreme lengths to straighten your hair, afros rock!

Having said all that, I send thoughts and prayers to the GGG, and not in an ironic way.

QAnon Movement Isn’t Dead, Cultists Believe Trump Will be Sworn in as President March 4, 2021

Donald Trump didn’t succeed in his crusade to overturn the will of the electorate and destroy our democracy and instead he is ensconced in Mar-a-Lago, uncharacteristically quiet after being banned from the most popular social media platforms.

Trump’s insurrection failed to stop the gears of government from certifying Joe Biden’s landslide win and Biden’s inauguration went off without a hitch on January 20, 2021.

Reality utterly demolished QAnon’s false conspiracy theories: Joe Biden is the president; Trump didn’t take down the “satanic deep state pedophile cabal” and the cultists wet dream of mass executions at Biden’s inauguration didn’t materialize.

After being totally discredited you’d think the QAnon movement would die, and the cultists would become atheists or join another cult. Believe it or not, the movement hasn’t completely died out, many followers are now claiming March 4, 2021 as the new significant date. They believe that’s the date when their false messiah will be sworn in as president.

Why March 4? Does it really matter? In a nutshell they believe a law was passed in 1871 secretly turning our democracy into a corporation, and therefore ever president after Ulysses S. Grant is illegitimate. In 1933 the inauguration date was changed from March 4 to January 20, and when Trump is inaugurated on March, he will become the only legitimate president since Grant. Total nonsense of course, but no crazier than their other conspiracy theories.

Like an apocalyptic cult that makes false prophecies after false prophecies about the End of the World, QAnon just keeps coming up with new conspiracy theories. QAnon will be with us for years to come, and it won’t stop poisoning our political system until Republican leaders stop fearing their base and publicly denounce it.

Trump Will be Acquitted, But Impeachment Trial Not in Vain

The outcome of Donald Trump’s unprecedented second impeachment trial is preordained, as sure as the sun rises in the east and sets in the west the disgraced former president will be acquitted for inciting a deadly insurrection at the Capitol even though the evidence against him is staggering.

The Democrats prosecuting Trump face an impossible task in persuading at least 17 Republican senators to convict Trump and bar him from any future office. A few days ago, forty-five Republican senators supported an initiative to block the second impeachment trial of Trump; you don’t have to be a constitutional scholar to recognize that’s a pretty good indication of how the final vote will play out.

Republicans are loath to cut the umbilical cord that ties the Man Baby to their party, even though the contaminated blood flowing from Trump to the GOP is killing their party.

Republican senators will be presented with visual and visceral evidence pointing to Trump’s manifest guilt. They will hear Trump in his own words inciting the crowd to march to the Capitol to prevent Congress from certifying the election results.

But the Republican jurors won’t consider facts and evidence in determining the innocence or guilt of Trump. Their main consideration will be not to render a verdict that will turn Trump’s fanatical base against them.

It’s reprehensible that Trump will be acquitted but the impeachment trial will not be in vain, the video footage of the trial will serve as a reminder to future generations of how close we came to losing our democracy. The two impeachments will be a permanent stain on Trump’s record, and a reminder that there were a few statesmen who did everything they could to hold Trump accountable for his many high crimes and misdemeanors.

Greg Kelly’s MCFISH Tale

I just went to a MACDONALD’S and there was no MCFISH on the menu.  When the hell did that happen?  Is it permanently banned? Or is just my “local” MACDONALD’S.  I demanded to see the “manager” but they accused me of being a “MALE KAREN” so i walked out.

What is it with QAnon crackpots and their penchant for misspelling and capitalizing common words? It’s McDonald’s and not MACDONALD’S; Kelly could have spared himself the embarrassment of misspelling the name of the All-American fast-food behemoth if he had simply taken a look at the image of the McDonald’s restaurant that he posted with his tweet.

What a MCIDIOT, of course there’s no MCFISH on the menu, just like there’s no MCBURGER and no MCHOTDOG. Anyone who regularly patronizes McDonald’s knows that their fish sandwich is the Filet-O-Fish and it’s still available for those with idiosyncratic tastes.

It must have been at least a MCDECADE ago when Kelly last went to a McDonald’s, or he would have known the correct spelling of the restaurant and the correct name of their fish sandwich. Methinks Kelly is just an elitist egghead pretending to be a man of the people.

I think this fake conspiracy theorist is just posting a fake anecdote on Twitter, he doesn’t strike me as someone with the nerve to demand to see the manager. Kelly, you aren’t a MALE KAREN, you’re more like a MALE PUSSY.
