Did it Happen?

Today is the day, isn’t it? Has it happened yet? Was the orange pile of fascist goo, ol’ fuckface trump reinstated as president today?

Didn’t those Q fuckers and that pillow shit for brains promise it was going to happen today? So what’s the deal? Do we have a new piece of shit in the White House, or is the decent human being still there.

I’m just so confused.

Happy Independence Day

Happy Fourth of July, everyone. Happy birthday to the USA.

Now can we remove the filibuster, pass the voting rights act, add Washington, DC and Puerto Rico as states, fix the damage done to the Supreme Court, and prosecute the fascists responsible for the January 6th assault on the Capital?

What was the point of winning the Senate and the White House if we were just going to shove our heads up our asses and accomplish nothing?

National Holiday

As of about two days ago, today is a national Holiday.

I think the first time I heard the term Juneteenth was last year. Forgive me, please. I’m a middle aged white guy whose lived his whole life in suburbia. I am not what one would call worldly. I think the first time I heard about it was about the same time I heard about the Tulsa massacre so I thought they were the same thing. Nope. I like the Juneteenth story a lot more.

Now that we have a national holiday celebrating the end of slavery what is next? How about police reform? We have a holiday, so now let’s end the system that gets people killed because their skin is the wrong color. You know, something real that will improve people’s lives? How about we pass voting reform so the jim crow 2.0 bullshit happening all across our idiot country can end and all Americans can have their say in the process? You know, something real.

Happy Presidents Day

Happy Presidents Day, everyone!

Now for me personally, I really don’t agree with having a holiday celebrating the fact that we have had presidents. I would rather have a day celebrating some specific person from our history, but whatever.

Over the last four years Presidents Day has been extra hard to stomach, given that the guy sitting in the office was a fascist, racist, cheeto whose very existence soiled the position in which he “served”. Now that the scumbag is gone though we can enjoy the day again.

Happy day that celebrates 45 out of 46 US presidents, and thanks again to President Biden for literally being alive.

Is Today the Day?

Is today the day that the US Senate once again vomits on the US Constitution by casting not guilty votes in the impeachment trial of former president cheeto McFuckface?

The first time around they put party ahead of country and voted to set the precedent that it’s okay for a sitting president to enlist the help of a foreign country in rigging an election. Today it is likely that they will once again put party over country and vote to set the precedent that it is okay for a sitting president to enlist the help of armed thugs to overthrow the US legislative branch. Also, they will set the precedent that a lame duck president can break any law he chooses because they cannot be found guilty in an impeachment trial after they leave office, even if they are actually impeached prior to leaving office.

It’s going to be a great day for America, he said with total sarcasm.

Impeachment

Now that trump is ancient history I have been able to take my eyes away from the White House without fear of it resulting in atomic annihilation. Words cannot express how good that feels. The adults are back in charge.

Mostly.

I haven’t watched the Impeachment proceedings, but every so often I check on the news (or, worse, twitter) and I read something about how insane the Republican party has become. Moscow Mitch says they should vote their conscience. What if they have no conscience?

Is the impeachment constitutional? Yes. Obviously. He was still president when he was impeached. Is inciting a deadly attack on the US Capitol impeachable? Duh. There you go. Constitutional scholar, QED.

I am more interested in Georgia opening an investigation into his election tampering. The punishment for that should have some teeth. We’ll see.

Until then, just keep repeating to yourself that the grownups are back in charge.

The grownups are back in charge.

The grownups are back in charge.

First Day Recap

It’s going to take a while for President Joe to undo all of the fascist shit that his nazi cheeto predecessor screwed up. In his first day in office though, he took some serious first steps.

He rejoined the World Health Organization because he’s not a moron. He instituted a mask mandate for all federal employees and anyone on federal property. He also created a covid response coordinator position. He signed an order preserving DACA, he reversed the muslim travel ban, he ended the idiotic ban on diversity training because he isn’t an idiot, he canceled the Keystone Pipeline permit and announced we will rejoin the Paris climate agreement.

As first days go… not bad, Joe. It’s definitely a good start.

Peace

First time in four years I’ve woken up and not felt a sense of dread over what he might have done while I slept. Is this what peaceful feels like?
