Screwed Again

This is the third time Republicans in Congress have promised to draw abundant water from an empty well, and most informed observers, including Paul Krugman, know it won't work this time either. In reality, taking all factors into account, the latest Tax Care for Billionaires boondoggle is almost certain to create financial difficulties for many more people than it benefits. The real pain will come when they start cutting billions out of health care to finance the windfall that will go largely to Donnie Doughnuts and those who are even wealthier than he is.

It might be worth it if there's enough voter backlash to make the GOP a minority party for 20 years or so. The power to do shit like this needs to be stripped away from them for a generation. We'll have to wait and see.

Added 5:25 PM: When it comes to Donnie Doughnuts, there's no end to the outrageous shit that fat fuck is being allowed to get away with.

Oh Roy, oh Roy...

I decided to do my daily walk at the mall this afternoon, and to pass the time, I started thinking about the news stories I'd read this morning. Several of them were about Redneck Roy Moore, and Republicans who are turning on him. That's puzzling because I know the rejection isn't a result of moral indignation... not when we're talking about rotten scumbags like Mitch McConnell.

There has to be another explanation. Even though polls are showing Redneck Roy leading in the Senate race, Mitch and his gang of punks are acting like they believe he'll lose the election, and the GOP Senate majority will shrink.

Then when I get home, I see this report.

It's Alabama.

A poll popped up showing the Senate race in Alabama is a dead heat, and suddenly the Republican Party is trying to change the rules to avoid losing the game.

The best response I've seen to Roy Moore is this right here. There are women who think they only exist to serve men like Roy. Fortunately, there are lots of others who don't.

More information about religious lunatics and why they'll stick with Moore

Side Effects

Jared and Ivanka's comfortable little world of wealth and privilege crashing down around them? I'd call that a nice bonus.
