  1. I just thought of a game. Help the Trump staff name the DC streets.

    At the intersection of Bigly Street and Huge Avenue, we now have Liars’ Corners.

    We’ll name Honey Trap Drive after Melania.

    Putin’s Bitch Boulevard is self explanatory.

  2. Hi guys and gals, I went on walk-about, mentally, at about 11 PM on November 8. My emotional stability wavered after my grandson’s death and again after the death of my landlord’s daughter. She was in her early 60’s and died from an infection in her throat brought on from choking on a piece if food several days earlier. I had to take my mind elsewhere.

    I’ve spent too much time hanging around Cornwall, which is appropriate since the internet cable from North America comes ashore there. l rode the Underground in London and Flying Scotsman to Edinburgh and traveled the Chunnel from France. I’m acquainted with Morse, Lewis, Wycliffe and other detectives who, like the police, don’t need guns to get their criminals in the nick. I confess to indulging in BBC and ITV programming to the point that steering from the left seems unnatural when I see it!

    I’ve posted my first comment since the election yesterday at C&L. It was Captain Queeg’s courtroom soliloquy about the strawberries and missing key. I was reminded of that from the guff and flummery used by the Piece Of Totally Useless Shit in Washington.

    Will there be a general notification when America achieves “Great Again” status?

    • It will be awhile before America is “great again,” mainly because it’s going to take a LONG time to get rid of all the contaminating invaders — white folks, Orientals, blacks — you know, everybody but her First People. Guess I’ll have to go back to Sweden — suddenly I’m looking forward to getting there. But I’ll refuse to ride on Drumpf’s deportation plane. Or Bannon’s. Or Pence’s, or any Republican’s for that matter. Might be a lonely trip, actually, but well worth it when the sum of the effort is to finally make America GREAT once again!

    • Oh Pachy, I’m so sorry about your grandson’s passing. I can’t even imagine that kind of pain. Many many hugs to you, my dear friend.

    • “Will there be a general notification when America achieves “Great Again” status?”

      I don’t know if there will be a general notification, we will just have to believe Cheeto Brain when he tells us.

      I’m guessing “Make America Great Again” could mean just about anything, like make America white again. Or make more war to show how powerful we are. Or make the system even easier for the fat cats to rape, pillage, plunder and profit from.

      I recall some Democratic Politicians referring to Wall Street as an out of control gambling casino after the 2008 collapse. Under Trump and his den of thieves it will only get worse.

  3. Here’s that butt cyst video I promised you guys. Fackface’s face reminded me…you prolly don’t want to be eating while viewing the video OR Fuckface.

    • Hey! It’s only 109 separate violations of the Constitution! What’s the big deal?!
      Impeachment in 12, 11, 10…. Oh, right + Emoluments clause…
      Let the dumbass have enough rope to hang himself, Bannon and the rest of the fascist cabal.

    • And I am the grandson of an immigrant family that came down from Montreal during a time of upheaval, to reside in northern Massachusetts. My grandfather stitched soles in a shoe factory, his wife taught school and raised three children. The youngest of them was put into trade school because of his father’s profession. He came back from WWI after serving in the Navy, and settled in Los Angeles. He worked in a factory making parts for aircraft, and used his GI bill to add on to his corpsman skills. He became a medical lab tech, and raised four children. I was the first our my family to graduate from college, and the lessons I am passing down to my children are that an open society doesn’t wet its pants at the sound of Booo, scary Muuuuslims. It is a shameful disgrace that this Prezidunce has brought down upon our nation. It diminishes the sacrifice of men and women like my parents and theirs.
      We will get rid on this beast. His impeachment is inevitable.

      • The two branches of the family I know anything about (maternal grandmother’s line & paternal grandfather’s line) show that I come from Scots and Irish immigrants, who arrived here prior to the Revolutionary War — Immigrants, yay!!!

        Racists like to fool themselves that anyone with white skin is somehow not descended from immigrants — including Fuckface himself.

        It’s shameful.

  4. I don’t know why everyone’s upset about Trump building a wall along the Mexican border.
    They’ll get over it.

  5. With all of the outrage and media coverage of the refugee and travel bans it seems one thing is conveniently left out of this madness.

    A majority of the 9/11 terrorists came from Saudi Arabia. Saudi Arabia is known for the hotbed of terrorism when it comes to recruiting, teaching and training future terrorists. Our government knows this yet there is no travel ban with Saudi Arabia and no rounding up or banning Saudi Arabian citizens in our country. Think about that for a minute. All this talk of security is a mirage.

  6. Just saw a new word I’d never seen before.
    kakistocracy
    A Man Without Grace Meets a Party Without Conscience
    kak·is·toc·ra·cies. Government by the least qualified or most unprincipled citizens. Origin of kakistocracy. Greek kakistos, worst, superlative of kakos, bad;
    Yup.

  7. Uh oh.

    Supreme Court nominee Gorsuch in his youth: “Fascism Forever”

    Supreme Court nominee founded and led a student club called “Fascism Forever,” while attending a private prep school in suburban Washington in the 1980s.

    The yearbook of Georgetown Prep described the club as an anti-faculty student group that battled against the “liberal” views of the school administration, according to the UK Daily Mail.

    “In political circles, our tireless President Gorsuch’s ‘Fascism Forever Club’ happily jerked its knees against the increasingly ‘left-wing’ tendencies of the faculty,” said the yearbook. Gorsuch led the club all four years he attended the elite all-boys Jesuit school in Bethesda, Maryland.

      • He’s their dream come true, ergo the “Uh oh.” The irony is that many of us have known and have been saying for years that the GOP has become a fascist movement. I keep wondering when the media will either catch on or lose their fear of using that verboten word, ‘fascism.’ I’m encouraged that it’s slipping a little more frequently into the discourse in recent months, but still is not seen as definitive of the GOP — which it clearly is.

        Thanks, Gorsuch.
