Them getting themmer.
The new right wing does more than just get petty when the going gets rough. We appropriate. When you attack us, we turn it into a slogan. Hillary’s “basket of deplorables” made us into The Deplorables. Her “fake news” now defines all the news that lies about us. We even got her freaking out about a green frog. Since then, we’ve convinced them that everything from an “OK” gesture to a bobbing purple dove to a glass of milk is a secret Nazi code. It’s so easy to turn them into a dizzy Chihuahua frantically chasing his own tail that it’s almost cruel—almost.
They’re tools and we’re a tool using species, it’s a perfect match!
Them acting Themmer
Huntington Beach Pro-Trump March Turns Into Attack on Anti-Trump Protesters
So… Some Trump supporters just started attacking peaceful people?
The anti-Trump protester, dressed in all black and wearing a mask, attacked an organizer of the event, Jennifer Sterling, and other members of the march with the irritant, causing a group of marchers to tackle the masked man, punching and kicking him.
Ahh, so the anti-Trump folks were “mostly peaceful” Anti-fa blackshirts who got their asses so deservedly kicked.
People aren’t going to let our fine, mostly-peaceful, fascist countrymen beat us anymore. People are fighting back. Generation Snowflake is going to find out that beating the people they hate is not cost-free.
There’s also been a spate of us getting themmer.
Let’s accept that Paul Ryan’s healthcare bill wasn’t optimal.
Since it was Obamacare with some lipstick, yeah, we’ll go with “wasn’t optimal”, sounds so much better than “Fuck you people who voted for us to get rid of Obamacare”.
If the Congressional Budget Office was anywhere close to correct in its original estimations,
Okay, that’s utterly stupid. The CBO is only useful for pushing lefty legislation or against conservative legislation.
But yes, it’s true, it wasn’t full repeal.
I’ll translate: “But yes it’s true, the GOP was saying Fuck You Base!”
Indeed, as long as insurance companies are required to cover pre-existing conditions, government healthcare is with us, and the bill would not have changed that.
At least you’re admitting, even as you try to deny it, that the GOP was not keeping their campaign promise of getting rid of Obamacare. This would have been worse than no bill.
This bit makes me laugh.
Let’s also forget about any four-dimensional chess conspiracy theories.
It looks to me as if he’s trying to play 9-dimensional chess by passing bills that eventually get the gov’t out of all aspects of my life.
All this said, I simply feel that letting the bill die was such a huge mistake politically that it would have been worth eating the bill’s flaws — trying to fix them in the Senate — and living to fight another day.
But I do care very much about the country and about what policies Trump institutes and leaves behind: the tax reform, regulation cutbacks, solid judge picks, and stronger foreign policy that seem to be a real and legitimate part of his agenda.
I’m a Conservative Dammmit!!!!!!!!!!!! I’m a PATRIOT!!!!!! And I’m for REGULATION CUTBACKS!!!!!! DAMMMITTT!!!!! But let’s leave some of that gov’t regulation in one of the most important aspects of our lives! Healthcare Needs The Gov’t To Be In Charge!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! CUZ IT’S CONSERVATIVE!!!!!!!
So that said, if the president now finds himself humiliated by the conservative leadership… if the president now finds himself unable to work with Republicans on the Hill…
What do the two have to do with each other? Republicans on the Hill are not led by any conservative leadership, they shit on the conservative leadership.
I fear this may be the end result of the failure of the healthcare bill: a Washington in which Donald Trump can find more love on the left than on the right, more chance of winning through leftism than through conservatism.
The Moderate Wing of the GOP (the GOP wing of the We’re Better And Smarter Than You Party) is always pushing the same thing, surrender. The GOP is far more On The Left than On The Right. Saying anything else is just not paying attention.
If only conservatives would get over that whole, “Limited gov’t thing” we could just get stuff done!
Let’s look at what Minitrue’s doing.
This has to kill this minitrue outlet in good standing.
Trump was right after all about the Obama administration wiretaps
Even as most of the media is still pushing “Unsubstantiated claims!!!!!!” bullshit.
It’s still minitrue, so they have to write this
Of course, the original tweets were poorly worded and inappropriate as a way for a president to raise this issue. Moreover, the inadvertent surveillance is rightfully distinguished from the original suggestion of a targeting of Trump.
It’s funny, the guy spent a paragraph or two explaining that “wiretapping” was a broader statement than just “taps on a wire” yet then he writes “poorly worded”. They’re still on “inapropriate” and yet, if Trump had not tweeted that, we would not be discussing Obama’s felonious/near treasonous listening in a political opponent.
In the 70s, a POTUS wiretapped his political opponents and the media got him to resign over the cover-up.
In the 10s, a POTUS wiretapped his political opponents and the media is trying to get the wiretappee to resign by covering up the crime.
It’s a funny old world.
More reports of Obama wiretapping Trump.
A House intelligence committee investigation took a dramatic shift this week after newly disclosed intelligence reports suggested the Obama administration improperly gathered and disseminated secret electronic communications from President Trump and his transition team prior to inauguration.
But Trump hates him some (insert current fakenewsers’ lie here)
Too bad the CDC and the NIH are too busy worrying about global worming and my guns to do anything about this work on sepsis.
He wants there to be a comprehensive study, and he said that Stanford University has expressed some interest. But he said it will be difficult to fund because it uses drugs that have been on the market for decades: “We are curing it for $60. No one will make any money off it.”
If the gov’t is gonna get into science, that’s what they should be doing but no, they’re too busy asking about my guns and worrying about the (made-up) plagues their god is wreaking on our world.
Other people are noticing
I wonder if he was one of those how was slapping his fins and honking his horn for all the stinky fish they threw at our faces.
Eh, since I’m twitting, I’m might as well keep being a twit.
Holy Moly! Foghorn Leghorn must be on freaking steroids! The chicken hawk’s gonna need a bigger dog!
Now I don’t like Cat Videos very much, but this one just made me laugh.
I could see a new sport, you’d just have to used a well-waxed floor instead of ice. Cats don’t like cold.
