Flipping Off Drumpf!

According to all sources, Monday is the day the dismantling of this corrupt, putrid South Vietnamese American administration will begin when Jared Kushner someone will be the first indicted by a grand jury led by Bob Mueller. All rock slides begin with a single rock and if the first rock happens to be a son in law campaign manager person who the Traitor in Chief will then deny knowing so be it.

Meanwhile over at Pravda state run Fox News the panic has set in. Sean Hannity has flipped his flat head by reaching for the stars and screaming uranium and going all Jan Brady by hollering Hillary Hillary Hillary. The morning show that helps get mush brains in pure mush form , Fox and Friends, has been setting the agenda for the Lazyass in Chief and setting off the racists internet trolls by running Tom Steyers impeachment ad.Last night on her weekly nervous breakdown, Robert Durst failure, Judge Jeanine Pirro went full rabid dog by calling for Hillary Hillary Hillary to be "locked up". For what? Who knows, I didnt listen because I already have two barking dogs driving me crazy.

Pravda State run Fox News is in full defense mode defending their Puppet In Chief by diverting attention from Trump's collusion with a foreign entity to win an election to a long debunked "story" about Hillary Hillary Hillary and Russian uranium. How ironic the side that bellows Fake News everytime something doesnt look good for the Cult Leader In Chief, now relies on Fake News to attempt to save his bloated orange ass.

This weekend is also rumored to be the weekend that the Republican thumb breakers try and slander Mueller into quitting. Firing Mueller, Trumps long held dream, to fire Mueller, would be political suicide, at least I think so, Trump IS a fucking zombie after all, thus the evil doers, the rest of the Republican robber barons who want tax cuts for billionaires, call for the one man standing between them and an oligarchy, Bob Mueller, to resign. Not a chance, assholes.

The call to action is clear. Its been almost a year since Trump lost the election yet somehow was installed as the Great Leader thanks to a bunch of cheese eaters, deer hunters and lake dwellers in three states. Oh yeah, that and an archaic system of elitism, a voter suppression effort, a Russian hacking scandal and plain old racist, sexist, homophobic shitheads who crawled out from under the rocks they live under with a bad case of economic anxiety. We mustnt fall asleep, become apathetic, give up in any way.

Like that hero pictured above. Give the finger 24/7 to this thieving administration of crooks, white supremacists, incompetent stooges and infiltrators bent on destroying you and me. Oh the state run TV addicts will never ever understand whats going on because brainwashing knows no cure, but the rest of us do.

The only thing worse than that bicycling hero for that motorcade is us. Or rain that ruins the Duffer In Chiefs golf game. Then they have to find him something to do. Like tweet about Broadway. Or getting into fights with war widows. Oh to hell with it. Just give the motherfucker the finger.

More Kneeling And Mediocre TV!

1) Not only are those two "patriots" wrong about their choice of cult leaders they are also wrong about the football team they choose to support. Who gives a shit what Browns fans think? Who gives a shit what Browns fans think about politics either? Trump cultist, strike one, Browns fan, strike two, wearing bucket hats, steerike three. Hey nice going Indians by the way.

The owner of the Houston Texans, one Bob McNair, a rich asshole who gave a million dollars so his buddy. The Groper In Chief, could have a nice inaugural in front of dozens of fans, said that in regards to NFL players kneeling during a fucking song, “We can’t have the inmates running the prison". What? Ok Warden Norton whatever you say.

A privileged prick like McNair making that statement tells me all I need to know about Mister McNair. He sees himself as a modern day Edwin Epps keepin his slaves players under control. Guys like McNair, who see themselves and all their money and power as the arbiters of all that is holy and patriotic, will never ever understand and nobody should expect them to. Now McNair non apologized for his Trumpian statement equating all kneeling athletes with criminals with the proverbial "if I offended anyone I apologize" shit so popular nowadays. You see, its YOUR fault for being offended you pantywaists.

Meanwhile in Oklahoma, Betty Shelby, you remember her, she's that "hero" first responder cop who shot an unarmed black man named Terence Crutcher. Crutcher, who had the gall to put his hands up obviously reaching for a gun in the clouds, was killed by Betty Shelby and oh yeah, it was on tape. Yet an Oklahoma jury saw fit to cover their eyes and acquit the Oklahoma shooter of manslaughter in the manslaughter of Terence Crutcher. NOw Shelby is back. And so is a judge who so helpfully ordered the "smear" on Betty Shelby's record, you know, the "smear" of killing a man with his hands up, sealed from view. So any background check on Betty Shelby you know, like Jefferson Sessions might run when Trump hires her as the head of the FBI or something, wont show up. Oh yeah, Betty Shelby, no record, no arrests, no trials, she's just one helluva cop. Yer hired.

So with a overseer like McNair, and a modern day Rainey and Price both free to spew their white privilege crap and shooting unarmed black men, if you still dont understand the kneeling, well quite frankly go fuck yourself.

2) I may be one of the few who think Stranger Things is one of the most over talked about shows on TV, but it really is. I watched it, and liked the kids in it as actors, and liked the guy playing the cop, and Matthew Modine, but for the love of Heathers why Winona Ryder is even employable at this point is beyond me. The scenery chewing alone is enough to make me long for the days of The Crucible, the last thing she was decent in. Thanks Daniel Day Lewis for the making people better. But Stranger Things is like a fading memory. I honestly cant tell you what the hell its even about. I have forgotten and though some of that may be my rapidly advancing Trump dementia, the rest is on them. Oh eventually I'll watch it for the kids, but Im in no hurry. Enjoy, everyone else.

3) Today is the birthday of Lee Greenwood, the only man alive who can make a song worse than that jingositic God Bless America. God Bless The USA is a truly dreadful song. It was played at a football game I attended years ago, and the Lee Greenwood had been given more cash to sing it in person. I didnt stand then, I didnt put my hand over my heart, I didnt remove my hat just as I would never do for the almost as dreadful God Bless America. Now today the Idiot In Chief tweeted out Birthday wishes to the wrong Lee Greenwood and that surprises nobody, so I too wish a Happy Birthday to Lee Greenwood, the wrong one by the way, because thats what I do. Just make sure that Happy Birthday is the only song we have to hear.

4) Speaking of God Bless America, in inning 7 of World Series Game 1, the announcer told fans to rise and remove your hats for the singing of this commercial song. Uhhhh, no. Now me as a straight white old male, THAT would be my kneeling moment.

The Waiting!

Ok, it just doesnt get any better than this. Seriously it does not.

His Name Is Sgt La David Johnson!

Every week it just gets worse. Whenever you think a new low cannot be reached, along comes tomorrow. This Clod In Chief cant even make a condolence call to a grieving family without fucking it up. "He knew what he was getting into..." I mean I get it. Nobody ever likes tghose type of speeches, those types of talking, giving condolences to a person who has lost someone is awkward as hell. To screw it up is human. But the difference is while you or me apologize and beg forgiveness for our awkward statements which we didnt mean, that came out wrong, sorry about that what I meant was, this Sociopath In Chief has no such gene. He's right, if you didnt get what he meant, fuck you. Not only that, he rallies the troops, the sycophants, the fellow sociopaths and racists, the white supremacists and clueless assholes who work willingly for this man to not only not apologize but to attack. Attack Attack Attack. Divert Divert Divert. Make it about somebody else. In this case, a cowboy hat wearing Congresswoman named Frederica Wilson who happened to be listening as the widow of Army Sgt. La David Johnson took Trump's forced condolence call on speaker phone. Oh yeah, all of these folks are black which makes it even easier for the Racist In Chief to attack. While his base focuses on a black woman wearing a hat, and sees no hypocrisy at all about their favorite hat wearing Sheriff calling her a "buffoon", Trump continues to avoid the inevitable fall from grace.

In the meantime, the clusterfuck in Niger is never explained. Four brave Americans died doing what they were ordered to do. Who knows if they believed in what they were doing but I doubt being ambushed and being at the mercy of a private contractor to get them out was what they believed in. From the information available at this time, the four Green Berets were killed by ISIS inspired criminals in a country far away that 99% of America dont even know exists, and when they do they probably make an N bomb joke. It seems three of the four Green Berets were killed immediately while a couple more had been wounded. An unarmed French helicopter owned by a private contractor flew in to evacuate the remaining troops and get the dead out. Unfortunately, private contractors dont give a fuck about not leaving anyone behind because the focus is profit, and thus Sgt La David Johnson was left behind alive. What happened to Sgt Johnson is unknown , but considering his widow was advised to not have an open casket I can only imagine. To not feel tears coming on as the pregnant young widow hugged her husbands casket is to be a soulless empty vessel of nothingness. You know, like The Empty Vessel In Chief.

I cannot tell you the fury I feel over private contractors participating in warfare. People like Erik Prince are profiteering scumbags who have no honor, who dont give a shit about anything except robbing the United States Treasury of all they can get before the wheels come off. To leave Sgt Johnson behind is unforgivable.

To quote a man named George Washington "Let us therefore animate and encourage each other, and show the whole world that a Freeman, contending for liberty on his own ground, is superior to any slavish mercenary on earth".

George may have been a slave owning founding father, but in this case, he was right on

Go Big Red!

Allow me to be provincial for a bit.

The first game of any kind my Dad took me to was in 1963. It was the University of Nebraska football team playing South Dakota State in Lincoln. The Huskers won that game 58-7 (some things you just dont forget) and I as a little kid began an emotional relationship with a sports team that I cannot abandon no matter what. Oh theres other teams I came to become fans of, The Chicago Bears, The Golden State Warriors, the Oakland A's, the San Francisco Giants, the Minnesota Twins, the Niners, Nebrasketball, the Cubs when they sucked (pre-Ricketts), but no team anyplace has the effect the University of Nebraska football team has on me. I went there to school, I have had my heart broken by them, Ive celebrated 5 national titles with them, and Ive watched them win or lose for 55 years.

But last night in Lincoln was beyond heart breaking.THE Ohio State University brought a team full of future NFL players to town and were 24 point favorites. In Lincoln. 24 point faves. A point spread that lopsided has not been installed for game in Lincoln since 1957. I refused to believe it. We dont fucking lose at night in Lincoln (though I had witnessed that happen just 7 days ago when Wisconsin battered us into submission).

I entered the old gray stadium full of hope. Within 3 minutes of the start of the game, the hope left me and I hoped for at least a close game.

Nebraska was destroyed in Lincoln on October 14,2017 by a football team from THE Ohio State University who was bigger, faster, and better coached than anything we have in Lincoln. By far. It was childs play. It was men vs boys. It was the Breeders Cup vs a claiming race. It was intelligence against Trumpers. It was a disparity in talent the world hasnt seen since Trump ran against Hillary. Thus, my hope.

People who are Nebraska fans are loyal to the end, as you can tell by the above picture of the stands after halftime. Well I am anyway because I stayed until my ill advised decision to wear shorts to a game where the temps dipped into the 40's won out with less than 4 minutes to go.

Nebraska fans have sold out that stadium every game since 1962. Wink wink. But the mass exodus last night was unprecedented. And the anger was unprecedented. The sight of the "Greatest Fans In College Football" abandoning ship so early pained me. You see, I believe in loyalty. I believe in all that. Oh I understand fair weather fans who would rather go drink than watch a dismantling of their favorite team. I get it. You arent that emotionally invested like some of us. You only like it when things are good. The tough times make you leave. I get it.

But last night, at my age when life things are wayyyyy more important than football, I had doubts. The Nebraska football team, one of the top 10 teams of all time in number of wins, is bad. Very bad. Not mediocre. Bad.

That make me sad. The future is uncertain. They already fired the Athletic Director. The football coach, Mike Riley, is a nice man, a good coach at programs who need teaching, but is he out of his league here? The last coach was a screaming, foul mouthed, temper tantrum throwing asshole who finally got sent packing but won 9 games every year. Should he have been fired after all? Fuck yes, probably 4 years earlier than he was. But we at Nebraska hire against form. Bo Pelini was an embarrassing child and Mike Riley is the guy everybody wants to live next door.

Somewhere in the middle is the answer. Being October, I feel a Frost coming on.

Trust me on this. I'm no rap fan, I'm not the demo, I hate the n bombs and the misogyny and the stealing sampling of truly great music.

But this, whoa. I give Eminem props. This fuckin guy has balls.

While NFL players are about to kowtow to a tinpot dictator and stand for an anthem that was written when their ancestors were owned by miscreants, this rapper risks it all by telling his fans you're either with me or you're with Trump and if you're with Trump, fuck you.

I'm not running out to buy any Marshall Mathers CD's (see Im obviously old I said CD) any time soon but this guy's courage is admirable.

So while California burns, and Puerto Rico starves, and Las Vegas reels, and Green Berets die in Niger, the President of the United States tweets about an ESPN host, and football players kneeling, and ratings, and gets called a fucking moron by his own Secretary of State for wanting to increase nukes tenfold cuz little boys like to play war, a courageous rapper calls him out.

Oh, Trumps base wont care. They are just learning that Eminem is white. They will get their marching orders from Fox News and Breitbart to decide what to say. Wife beater, druggie, white trash. Those are the insults coming.

So if a line in the sand has been drawn by a rapper. Fine. It takes somebody to draw it. I'm ready to stand with Marshall Mathers. Just dont expect me to listen to Slim Shady.

Cooch Ditka!

Iron Mike Ditka. Hall of Fame tight end. Super Bowl winning coach and legendary knucklehead.

Despite being a Chicago Bears fan since I was a little kid in the 1960s (and they sucked so this is no bandwagon) I never gave Ditka credit for that one year when he followed Buddy Ryans defense and followed the Bears to a Super Bowl win. Nope, it wasnt that knothead who won the Super Bowl, it was Buddy Ryan. Everything else the lunkhead Ditka did in his career was a fucking disaster. He constantly lost playoff games he should have won once Buddy Ryan moved on to Philly. He ruined the New Orleans Saints after taking over that franchise as the Savior from Chicago. But boy did he fool those dumb Bears fans. Idolized Iron Mike. Cooch Ditka he won us a Sooper Bowl. He da man. Da Bears. You Bears fans do realized SNL was making fun of you, right?

But lets face it. Mike Ditka is a lamebrain. Ditka is a rich dumb brickhead who forgets from where he comes. But like most narcissists used to having their ass kissed by dumb people, Ditka allows the unwashed to kiss his ring. The ring Buddy Ryan got him.

Political Ditka is an even bigger rockhead. In tghe late 1980s when NFL players had some balls and actually went on strike, Iron Mike lashed out at his players for not crossing the picket line. Iron Mike's daddy was a welder in the 1930s and 1940s and I assume a union member. But once Mike makes some money its all about Mike, a proud NFL Players Union member. Hey you scabs, lets play some football.

It really is all about Mike. His nitwit 7th inning stretch singing at a Cubs game should have been an embarrassment that made Chicago hate his guts but no, Cooch Ditka won us a Sooper Bowl. He's been arrested for DUI, called a heckling San Francisco fan a "fag", let a clown like the Refrigerator Perry score a Super Bowl touchdown and not legendary Bear Walter Payton, traded every draft pick he had in New Orleans to get marijuana enthusiast Ricky Williams to barely play for him, and once was thinking of running for the United States Senate seat against Barack Obama. There is no doubt in Ditka's cement head he wold have beaten Obama and spared the country from 8 years of President Blackenstein. He said that in 2012 when Obama was kicking human statue Mittens Romney's ass.

But as clueless as Mike Ditka is, nobody thought that the most overrated football coach of all time was this clueless.

Ironhead Mike Ditka stated last night, in public, out loud, "All of a sudden, it's become a big deal now, about oppression.There has been no oppression in the last 100 years that I know of. Now maybe I'm not watching it as carefully as other people. I think the opportunity is there for everybody. ... If you want to work, if you want to try, if you want to put effort into yourself, I think you can accomplish anything."

Huh? No oppression since 1917? Well of course not at least as far as rich white guys goes. But Jim Crow and the NAACP and the Browns in Topeka and Emmett Till might disagree. Ditka is such a boulderhead he sees nothing but himself. Like that other overrated bully, Bobby Knight, Ditka has turned into that cranky racist uncle that about 32% of your family will never admit is a moron.

But he is a moron. Until Bears fans who cant forget dat Cooch Mike won us a Sooper Bowl, admit it, Ditka will continue to be a blowhard who never has to answer to his idiocy. Christ, the Bears fired the jackass n 1989 cuz once Buddy left, he sucked the life out of them.

Get over it, Ditka worshipers. It was 32 years ago he stumbled into a win. He's been stumbling his whole life. Its about time somebody let him fall.

Jemele Hill!

Lets get this straight. Jemele Hill dont take shit from nobody. She is the host of a show on ESPN along with Michael Smith that actually discusses subjects deeper than who oughta be starting quarterback for the fucking Chicago Bears.

You may remember Jemele Hill as the person calling the White Supremacist In Chief a white supremacist via twitter which pissed off the white supremacist so much he sent his hillbilly spokes hick out to demand her firing. But Jemele survived. Wow I guess the truth will set you free. Right?

Today ESPN, one of the foulest networks of all time, suspended her for two weeks for stating more facts. Jerry Jones, the plastic faced owner of the deplorable Dallas Cowboys, bellowed that any player who "disrespected the flag" would not be allowed to play. Hill stated via twitter that Jones had put a lot of players in a tough position and that perhaps boycotting the Cowboys sponsors may be an option to combat this forced patriotism. She didnt call for a boycott but put it out there.

Considering a lot of the sponsors of that despicable Cowboys organization are also sponsors on ESPN, the worldwide leader in cowardice, the network sat Jemele Hill down for two weeks.

Now think what you will about kneeling during the anthem, or whatever, but forcing someone to show "respect" doesnt work. Trust me on this. I went to Catholic School for 12 years and was forced to show "respect" for an antiquated sexist organization for many years until the "respect" became disdain and eventually became open hostility. Your forcing of young black men to stand during a song about bombs and warfare aint no different than your forced conversion of slaves to your Jesus.

So fuck you ESPN and Jerry Jones. While the cost of allowing allegedly free Americans to express themselves is $0 and the cost of allowing a phony white haired Puritan phony to stage a walkout to impress morons is millions of dollars, America doesnt disappoint by choosing the expensive option. Whether it be sacrificing lives for a lie, or suppressing the minorities from voting, or catering to a fascist prick like Trump, this country needs to grow up fast.

We are losing it. An Aryan run autocracy may be the goal of the wealthy, but that aint gonna work well either.

Today we should all be Jemele Hill.

Mike Pence And Mother!

Like Bill Maher aptly said "Mike Pence looks like the guy who chased the Von Trapp Family into the Alps". Yeah he does, and he would have, because Mike Pence is a shameless phony with a fake Christian faith that excuses his bigoted hateful views.

Yesterday's stunt, in which Pence flew at taxpayer expense from Las Vegas to Indianapolis and then back to California was so utterly phony and staged that only 32% of America is dumb enough to fall for it. If youve been under a rock, or have no interest in the NFL (me either) and do not know what Pence attempted to pull off, here's a timeline.


Mike Pence goes to Las Vegas to shed fake tears over the massacre of American citizens by a 2nd Amendment enthusiast. He praises the police which in this case is 100% warranted. He pretends to care about the hundreds of victims of a man who loved the 2nd Amendment. The hundreds of victims whose lives have been shattered by a madman a patriotic gun loving American, who are saddled with medical bills they will never pay off, bodies that will never be the same, and dead friends and relatives who shall never return, are all so uplifted by this man who would gladly take all their health insurance away, put weapons of mass destruction into even more hands in the name of freedom, and generally doesnt give a fuck about any of them. But at least his donors would get a tax cut.


Mike Pence flies to Indianapolis to watch the Indianapolis Colts play the San Francisco 49ers. Peyton Manning is getting his jersey retired, hoo boy, all Colts fans get big stiffies over Peyton Manning. He got them a Super Bowl trophy by beating the Chicago Bears which cuz it was the Bears shouldnt even count. Mike Pence knows that the 49ers are the team that started this whole hey cops stop killing unarmed black people disrespect for the flag and troops and military and Donald Trump and apple pie and fine people Nazis by kneeling during the National Anthem.

Mike Pence tells reporters to stay in the press van, I wont be long. Mike Pence and Mother stand during the anthem, hands over hearts,waiting for half the 49ers to kneel. They do, again protesting police murder disrespecting the flag and the nation and the troops and the military and the fine Nazis who gathered in Charlottesville again the night before.

Mike Pence and mother leave the game. They will NOT subject themselves to this disrespect. Mike Pence tweets this. Donald Trump, not the center of attention gets mad and tweets yeah that was my great idea, for Pence to leave if the Niners kneeled. Mike Pence tweets some more, no totally spontaneous, not planned.

Mike Pence rides to airport in taxpayer funded limos, with taxpayer funded Secret Service to the airport where he flies to California, at taxpayer expense, to raise money at a 6:30 pm pre planned fundraiser.

This stunt cost taxpayers over a million dollars, if not more. Now if you actually believe that Mike Pence's publicity stunt was real, well then go get an MRI because you are really in danger of forgetting to breathe.

Look, I cant argue this any longer. The kneeling has nothing to so with troops or flags or nation or fucking jerking off to the 2nd Amendment. It has to do with unequal treatment. Period. If you suffer from white privilege and succumb to the bullshit out of Trump's mouth and the stunts of an Aryan Supremacist like Mike Pence, well then good for you. You are lost. You are the 1933 Germans who allowed the Nazis to take over.

But to the rest of us, this kind of propaganda is right out of 1930s Germany.

What Mike Pence did yesterday is simple. He flew, at taxpayers expense, to wink at a 32% base of white voters who hate blacks. Yeah, Clem, we are with you. We hate them also. Watch. They disrespect our flag and veterans and are not like you. See, we are patriots. They are not. We will putr a stop to them and return power to you. Wink wink.

Mike Pence may have well worn a Colts jersey with the N word on the back.

Tom Petty!

Well some say life will beat you down
Break your heart, steal your crown
So I've started out for God knows where
I guess I'll know when I get there

Well he got there. Tom Petty died and part of me went with him. Like John and George, like Jim and Jimi, like Roy and Del, like Waylon and Johnny, like Kurt and Layne, like Warren and David, like Leon and Greg, the death of yet another rock star has bummed me out like Ive lost a relative.

Tom Petty first came into my life when I saw him on Midnight Special or something back in the mid 70s. Hey, who is this guy? Hes the 2nd coming of Roger McGuinn and the Byrds. Breakdown was the song. And that began a long stretch of music from a man with something relevant to say. When he tells the whole wide world to shove it, or makes Stevie Nicks actually listenable during Stop Draggin My Heart Around. sings in the greatest supergroup ever, sings about the good girl who loves Elvis and Jesus, just rocks out in a bizarre fashion, or lays it out there that 0, Tom Petty never let me down. Never. But the song that hit me hardest and still makes me lose a connection to the horrible reality of the world is the one about Learning to Fly.

I'm learning to fly, but I ain't got wings
Coming down is the hardest thing

No shit, Tom. Thanks man.
