Bannon is a Crook. Duh

Steve Bannon was arrested today for ripping off donors to a build the wall charity.

Now I know that this won’t amount to anything, and even if it did the nazi in washington would probably pardon him because consequences aren’t a thing for republicans.

However, knowing that this piece of shit is going to spend at least a day in jail has warmed my heart in a way that nothing political, including all of the speeches from the Democratic convention could not.

Seeing trumpers go to jail… it’s just lovely.

Axios

Watch this.

The President of the United States is completely delusional. He’s trying to spin death as a positive. It’s unfathomable.

I haven’t watched the full interview yet but I’m going to post it so I can find it here later.

I’d say enjoy, but I expect it’s more likely to infuriate.

No Way in Hell, Cheeto

Not in this lifetime, you nazi cheeto fuck. No way in hell. Never. November 3rd is going to be the worst day of your evil, pathetic excuse for a life.

Some Notes on a Saturday

How long does a modern TV last? This morning Jen started thinking about a new TV. We don’t need a new TV, I said. When did we buy our current living room TV, she asked. Off to the blog I go!

The blog holds all the answers. The new TV was purchased on September 28, 2014. Just shy of six years ago. The blog is wise. The blog knows.

So then we asked how long do TVs tend to last these days? Off to Google Jen goes! 5-7 years. Well, that settles it then. Conspicuous Consumerism dictates that we need a new TV. We’re going to hold off until Christmas… I think. We agreed to that, but Jen is hovering around BestBuy.com which means maybe she won’t be able to wait.

Second Saturday note: UPS again… oh boy. Just when I came to grips with the fact that I was going to have to file a claim with GuitarCenter.com over the amplifier that will never be shipped, UPS updated the tracking number to say that once again (take three) it is on a truck and out for delivery. The estimated delivery date/time is today by 9:00PM. I’m taking bets on what time this afternoon they change that date to Monday. Anyone?

The third Saturday note is the only actually important one. There is a story suggesting that Russia paid bounties to the Taliban for killing American soldiers. It is also being said that trump knew about it and did nothing.

I don’t know if any of it’s true. I’ve only seen it on Twitter. I haven’t read any of the source articles. I don’t know if it is true or not. I just know this:

Bolton’s Book

Are you going to read Bolton’s Book? Forgiving that the scumbag fascist stole the name from a Hamilton song, I still don’t think I want to read it.

Under normal circumstances, I would jump at the chance to read the inside dirt on the trump fascist regime, especially if it was written by someone who worked for him. In this case though… I don’t think I want to.

On the one hand, I read a review that says the writing is terrible. That is enough to turn me away. I don’t want the experience of reading the book to be painful when the subject matter is already super painful.

Mostly though… I just can’t get over that we knew all of this dirt was out there before the impeachment vote and the fascist collaborators in the senate ignored it all and didn’t subpoena him. That fact is so disgusting to me that I just can’t get past it.

Not to imply that I would ever pay money for something that Bolton would profit from. In this case I don’t even think I would read a pirated copy of the book. Screw that nazi.

The Stir Crazy Files – Episode 43

See look, he’s posting as normal. There’s nothing wrong. Society didn’t end last night when the so called president ordered troops onto the streets of Washington in order to put down constitutionally protected rights. No, there’s nothing wrong.

I just changed the cat’s litter box. I dumped it all into a garbage bag and took it out to the trash. I enjoy one aspect of this process. Since the squirrels in our yard gnaw holes in the barrel covers so that they can climb inside and eat our trash, when I put the contents of the litter box into the barrel I am literally telling the squirrels to eat shit.

See? Nothing wrong. Life just going on as it was before the fascists ordered armed troops onto the streets of the nation’s capital. No problem.

Control

Remember all those posts from Sunday when I was talking about needing to feel like there is something in this screwed up world that I have control over, even if it’s totally an illusion?

I took the trash barrels out to the street this morning and I have to say that my lawn looks great today.

I miss living in a country I felt proud of. After yesterday, I don’t know that I will ever be able to feel that way again.
