It's been five long years of blogging the Trump years. We've laughed, we've cried, we've pulled some of our remaining hair out, but we've made it. It is almost done and our democracy, nation, and souls are still largely intact. Unfortunately, we're not through.There is much more to come as we stitch ourselves back together like some kind of common Frankenstein monster as we recover from the PTSD that Trump gave us and the needless deaths and suffering from #COVID19. We also have to keep #BidenHarris honest & progressive, oppose Republican obstructionism anti-democratic tendencies, and whatever other black swans await us. All of which will be addressed using good old-fashioned snarcky, sarcasticky, profaney fun and psychological insights.
It has been an exciting and intense couple of weeks what with nuclear war with NK hanging in the balance and Mueller stepping in on Manafort, but that don’t mean we can’t laugh at the OPG when predicted disasters come home to roost!
I always loved this quote. It describes the disastrous 20’s and our current predicament. I’m afraid #HistoryRepeats
I predicted that the Ol’ Pussy Grabber’s admin will be similar to Warren Harding — out of control, corrupt, chaotic, directionless. #HistoryRepeats
We are rightly worried about what the Ol’ Pussy Grabber will do in response to North Korea. He is just narcissistic enough and poor enough executive functioning that he could nuke ’em on a whim or he could figger it is a clever political ploy to win the 2018 Congressional elections. North Korea is predictable and stable by comparison.
Psychic numbing describes the apathy people feel when confronted by millions of people suffering. The singularity effect explains why people will donate because one person is suffering. Strange but true. We can use this to our advantage if we understand it.
If we judge people by what they do rather than by what they say, we are forced to the conclusion that the religious right doe not mean, hate the sin, love the sinner; rather, they mean, hate the sin, punish the sinner.
Bob “Coal” Murray is suing John Oliver for skewering him on his satirical comedy show. The WV ACLU filed an amicus brief to support John Oliver, and it is snarky, sarcasticky, and profaney — all things loved by Ye Olde Blogge.
This week the Ol’ Pussy Grabber has been talking up war with NK. He’s pushing them into a corner, and they will lash out if they believe we are about to attack. With key appointments to State and Defense unnominated, we are flying blindly into a conflagration.
25th amendment solutions to the national nightmare just got one step closer to being made real! The APA has relaxed the Goldwater Rule! Members can now discuss mental health symptoms of public figures!
STAT asked experts to compare the Ol’ Pussy Grabber’s speech patterns over time. The results do not bode well for the WH squatter, but they do for 25th amendment solutions to the national nightmare.
How you viewed the condition of the country probably determined your vote. If you saw the country as doing OKAY, you probably saw the Ol’ Pussy Grabber as too big of a risk. But if you saw the country has going in the wrong direction, you were tempted to take a chance on the Ol’ Pussy Grabber. What does behavioral economics, loss aversion, and risk seeking tell us about 2018?
The Ol’ Pussy Grabber’s polls have never been good and don’t seem to be improving. With almost 50% of the polled populace supporting impeachment, let’s hope that the Repubes and OPG are punished for their hubris in 2018 and the Dems take Congress.
A Quickie: The Ol’ Pussy Grabber’s Narcissism on Display — Mueller is going After Him due to a Six Year Old Disputed Golf Fee!

An article from the “New Republic” on the rising authoritarian ways of the Squatter-in-the-White-House and the Repubes noting in particular the attempt to run roughshod over the DoJ this week and the willingness for the Repubes to look the other way. The Dems MUST re-take the Senate in 2016 and had better re-take the House.
We are a country divided and the distinctions are becoming more distinct. Evolutionary psychology says we treat each other like foreigners with fear, suspicion, and disgust.
Ivanka, amirite? She’s the nice one, but is she? How fucked up is she really? Why hasn’t she been in the news more? What about her foundation? Her fashion line? Her books? What drives her grifty plagiaristic fakery?
Our political divide is so acrimonious, can we actually articulate values that all Americans share? Can we list them? Do we live them?
The situations we are in causes behavior including rape. And, in the RIGHT situation any man will commit sexual aggression including sexual assault.
