It has been a difficult day. So here is a few tweets and stuff:

On this Presidents’ Day let us remember those who preceded us. The founders created a perfect system of checks and balances but it only works if corruption doesn’t become a systemic problem the way that it has. Our last hope lies in driving out the scourge next election and all those in congress who enable him. • #presidentsday #happypresidentsday #notmypresident #notmypresidentsday #georgewashington #benfranklin #foundingfathers #checksandbalances #votethemout #voteblue #votebluenomatterwho
Seems like we are losing many special people lately:

Since there was so much bullshit being thrown around last night, and considering tRump is also, full of shit…I am littering this post with vintage laxative ads.
I refused to watch the orange turd give his “speech” last night.
Here is some take aways:
Actually, that sounds like any of the GOP assholes who support tRump no matter what laws he breaks. “When human nature, ethics, sanity won’t, tRump and the GOP will!”
I refuse to put any link to this speech, if you want to read about it, look it up your damn self.
Now that is a shithouse move…
This was at 12 am last night…
One last time:
I want to end it with something uplifting:
Check out the cute butt on the badger…

After reading Boston Boomer’s post yesterday about all this…shit, it makes me even more disturbed.
I am not able to work my thoughts into words lately. Maybe it is the fact that nothing or no one will hold this nightmare accountable…and that we are this close to having a cancerous monstrosity of this administration appointed for a lifetime membership to the Supreme Court. Together with Gorsuch…Kavanaugh and the rest of the conservative members will change our lives as Americans. The impact will be fatal. In an all to literal sense. It will solidify tRump…he will get away with everything. (And this is not pushing it too far, would tRump even take it to announcing himself…president for life?) Would Kavanaugh just nod and say, sure…it is within his executive rights?
I’m tired of being Chicken Little, or a Cassandra…but nothing gives me hope.
Here’s a few links you may have missed:

Some more issues with Women’s Tennis:
Chair umpire Carlos Ramos managed to rob not one but two players in the women’s U.S. Open final. Nobody has ever seen anything like it: An umpire so wrecked a big occasion that both players, Naomi Osaka and Serena Williams alike, wound up distraught with tears streaming down their faces during the trophy presentation and an incensed crowd screamed boos at the court. Ramos took what began as a minor infraction and turned it into one of the nastiest and most emotional controversies in the history of tennis, all because he couldn’t take a woman speaking sharply to him.
Williams abused her racket, but Ramos did something far uglier: He abused his authority. Champions get heated — it’s their nature to burn. All good umpires in every sport understand that the heart of their job is to help temper the moment, to turn the dial down, not up, and to be quiet stewards of the event rather than to let their own temper play a role in determining the outcome. Instead, Ramos made himself the chief player in the women’s final. He marred Osaka’s first Grand Slam title and one of Williams’s last bids for all-time greatness. Over what? A tone of voice. Male players have sworn and cursed at the top of their lungs, hurled and blasted their equipment into shards, and never been penalized as Williams was in the second set of the U.S. Open final.
We can only hope something good can come out of November:
And what about that plaid shirt guy?
And by the way:
Latest update on Florence:

Check out this tweet from Pasco Sheriff’s office…
And what the fuck is with the brown sock monkey?
In relation to that….
I want to end with this news out of Dallas…
This is an open thread.
Do you all remember this Time cover?
There is the link to the video and article back when this cover came out in June of 2018.
It seems that perhaps this cover was more of a foreshadowing of what was to come? I mean, every day tRump does something more horrible than the previous day….however, his latest blatant moves, pulling the security clearance of John Brennen…firing of Peter Strzok…the threats to remove other security clearances…prejudice potential jury pools…etc. I know that we say it over and over, but this is truly the behavior of a twisted despot. And if I had drawn that picture above, not only would I have tRump wearing a crown, I would have him twisted and deformed…much like the painting of Dorian Gray. Showing the world all the true impressions of his disgusting nature. Syphilitic, greed and hate…just to name a few.
Even that image above is not horrendous enough…it needs the asshole mouth with vile putrid filth spewing out.
Check out these Twitter threads, see what you take away from them:
I would never have thought…I’d be posting a link to a John Dean twitter tweet!
Like this is surprising? None of these assholes will hold tRump accountable for his treasonous actions, you think that they are going to do an interview about confronting his racist invective?
The next two threads are long…
Stick with these threads….read them in full.
Here’s some other tweets to think about…
I don’t think it will matter at all….if “he said it.”
They had Bannon on MSNBC on Friday, what the fuck?
And then there is Maud….I mean Chuck Todd:
The Hoarse Whisperer was on fire this week, if you don’t follow…you need to:
Regarding the Manafort trial:
All the while, tRump is tweeting his shit about Manafort.
Now, I am thinking he is getting more death threats from the side that wants to see Manafort acquitted…but that is my own opinion.
Even God is getting in on the discussion:
About the tRump action on twitter this morning:
I am sticking to tweets this morning, in consideration of this shit:
Meanwhile, down in Georgia, we are fucked:
I will end it with a dumbass….
Enjoy your day…this is an open thread.
